I've never had one this this young before. I found mine. Mi was like four weeks old when I found him. Oh really, it was like for for yeah, because the vet said it was pied six weeks old and I took took me two, like two weeks. He gets to the vet, because I found mine at work and a dumpster. Oh, relying around in a dumpster to like usus. I don't even know how long is there exist. I me like two weeks to get him. So he's like two weeks old probably. Oh my God. Yeah, it was pretty wild smart. It was humane trap, so I literally left food out there and water for like two straight weeks and am I but I was like, I have you maine trap, so I got work another within like two hours. Call Them. It's a humane trap. It's one that go in there, you put food in it, they go in and when they go in, it triggers the water close behind them. Oh okay, Gotcha. I'd never heard all that before. Now you've never had one this. When I was growing up I had a young one, but let 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 almost too. So gotcha. So, yeah, this is this is a learning experience. I've had to reach out to a lot of cat friends just like what do I do for what? Because they just because Rosie's being such a bitch. But home it's literally because it's territory that it literally might my cat swing brought in another cat. One cat was like a week. Yeah, it was like all right, yeah,...

...and I also feel like she was a little put off because I brought to home because I was hold on the one 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 orange cats comes out and she was just like nom, not okay with this, not today, hissing and spitting. Then we're real. What really shook me was 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 was like 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 doing this. Wow, anksty little teenager. Yeah, yeah, did you hear about 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 that might be offensive. Yeah, we should call them extra restaurants. And I got 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 it was. Yeah, that do like go, what's up? My Hmm. That's all stake. It now is like what if that like, what do we do as a society if that's what they call? That's what they you literally 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 the king of all racial epithets here on our planet. Yeah, but we're like Fivezero 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 weird premise of a joke, but I just thought about they find our white skin offensive. Yeah, they're all like very dark skinned, and so they find our paleness offensive and just be there. I don't know, I was thinking about that Shit. I was like that what we do. It like what, like, wait, you guys, go by what you will. You can you can't say that. Like we've been doing this for thousand, like of generations and generations, and that's who we are. Yeah, that's our whole identity. Like, I'm sitting there. I'm like what tough, what are you? What are your people called? We're called humans. You're called what do you know how racist that is? Hunch a humans, man's hard ass to that's they do. That's what they do when they want to human's humans. That your I are allowed in here humans or they calls humans to two ows. motherfucker. I was just...

...literally taking about my wife. I looked at me. She's like, what the Hell is your problem? That was like you married this. Yeah, the and I think it was I think the Deo Patrick or not newbout Neil, the grass Tyson was said, you know, Patrick Hair Snel, the grass dies. And was like all the 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 weirdest part about the whole thing is like what if they didn't even exist any like 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 with something 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 see on Tumblr. Yeah, like that's some tumble level bullshit right there. Call Them Aliens. She call him extra transteals cum on Star Trek, get on that. I want a race of aliens that their name is the n word. Let's really the Star Trek you want to challenge social norms. Let's go off to the wall. Here are you? Are you on your schedule now, though? Are you next week? Next I knew what starts next week. Yeah, so I have to work like six days in a row to get on it, but then I'm off on my regular schedule. So I'm going to hit barrel house next Thursday night because, yeah, if I can, I'm going to. I wrote some new shit last night. I want to try it out. Madam Yeah, I got this big N Word Joke. You're just you, just sitting on it. You're trying to figure out how to make it work. I've been trying to do a good an word joke for WHO. I think there was ever a good one. This is a good one. I think it's the Demi Levado, then Levado game. Maybe lava was the key to her Edward. I ever heard a Demi Vadas? 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? Oh, oh, that's what you MMM MMM. Well, hello, Mr and I can't say it. Okay, I can't say it if I did. Like, what's your what do you have afer for? My best friend is an alien. Did you ever first name? Sir? Oh, it's Kunt will, fantastic created. Your name is condon. You're up. Well, humans is drag artry, not like I just said. You guys curse for what.

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's been around some of the stuff I've watched online, so I knew we did 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 from being 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 so haunting. I Know Zelda, Zelda Williams, his daughter, she's really active on twitter 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 my somebody 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 his inside the inside the actors student know that. But like, yeah, because him and him and Belushi were the best of friends and Belushi dying from from coke is what got him to kick it. That in a grand jury. But but yeah, so that's why that's like so like for him to capture that so well, this moment, like this defining moment for Robin Williams where he's just doing coke all the time and then Belushi dies and it's just like instantaneous, 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 how it was like it was that getting arrested and then like his son was born like right after that and it was just kind of like, yeah, I can'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 making a biopic about Robin Williams for a while, but he's Im and then that long he really it was a twenty fourteen. I don't know, but I don't know 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 few years about a George Carlin biopic. I don't know who the fuck you get to know that. Only name, only name that comes to mind for me is Bill Burr. But like he couldn't pull that off. No, I don't know. It's I think it's more or less just the intensity. But like actually like being George Carlin. That's just that's such a that's a like being a comedian in general. Like like you can, you can get a really 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 a comedian, you almost have to get somebody who's going to go like, you know, Jim Carrey, man in the Moon Style and and find a way to giuse. He even, I know, like to copy other Comedians cadence and and style on stage is impossible. Yeah, so, so, so I'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 jokes off 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, like the jokers? Like, I can't do the voice anymore. So I'm trying to think of a good what's a good head vert? One? Recently I put 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 thought to myself, what if I held on to eleven and a line when I fell into the water? I am saved by the buoyancy sexress. That's rights us so many troubles. I still do, but I used to to. I tried 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 I just 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 if I ever did it, that's what I was going to do. So for like 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 like this guy that was like dead on. Yeah, and I how he does it's like really, like my key's fucking spot on. He tells you how to do it. It's like there's a lot more to it than just mouth like like the voice, like there's mouth movements and face, little facial move that's what this Jamie cost to doing a Robin Williams thing is, like he gets it's not just the voice, it's everything. Yeah, that's the the mark of a really that's where it goes...

...from being just an impression to like embodying that person. And Yeah, with with Heath Ledger's joke, especially. That's such a tough one to do. You know, do you see this new Batman trailer? Holy Shit, looks fucking great when he's just taking a machine gun bullets walking through the hallway like it's fucking nothing. Just, Oh my gosh, the suits made for also, nobody aims for his face. I don'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 for his 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 police can see these white yeah, that's it's as. The trailer looks really good. Yeah, looks really, really, really good. Yeah, I've it's it's like the one they drop last years. Like I've watched this thing on repeat like like six, seven times already. That's too that and that new flash trailer doesn't sneak PEA. Yeah, because they they just finished filming like lat two weeks ago. They really yeah, but yeah, like that sit you could hear Michael, Michael Keaton Talk. In that shot of the mask, you almost see the batmobile. Yeah, the Black Adam one was neat for being 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 cast as 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 another Shazan movie. Yeah, but did you see, like after all these trailers dropped 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. It says March fourth will. They were also going to release doctor strange to in March. They bump that shit back to April. HMM. They moved a bunch 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 I am very much looking forward to doctor strange to you. But the Batman's going to rush like Holy Shit. I've I'm I'm starting no wonder if maybe this go around DC destroys marvel be weird. Maybe. I know they had the premiere for the eternals over the weekend. I haven't they have it. Disney hasn't. So film studios will put review embargos where they don't let you publish reviews of if you go to these early screens, you can't post a review until like a certain date, and they haven't lifted the embargo yet for the eternals. So I haven't heard any reviews or anything yet, but I'm really curious to see because that is such a unknown. fucking no, but knows that 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 marvel even pushed back. Two Thousand and twenty three. They switched at me on the 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 of get a handle on their own shit. Well, I mean that they finally were like they if they knew they fucked up one's snack snighter and they did the 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 to like they're they stopped worrying about the universe shit. Yeah, because joker crushed wasn'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're so disconnected from everything. Well, no, and they're not trying to make marvels all like, Leus make this big story come together. Yeah, it's I 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 the Flash, because it's like this whole multi dimensional thing. Yeah, you can just you that. That way, you can use that as a safety and out of like now we can have four different Batman's or whatever, because they're in this universe and there in that universe. And also just who gives a shit their movies? If they're good, they're good. I think it's the craziest part about marvel, about phase the first the end game is think you had all those movies lead up to one moment. Yeah, that's the craziest part about the whole thing is everything was relevant. Yeah, and it's such a like the level of undertaking that that is. I mean that's that's the kind of shit they do in comic books. That's comic book level writing as far as just, you know, moving pieces. That's like what they did like 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're kind of sitting like okay, cool, so what's next? Yeah, and that's that's what we're going to see, I guess. But fuck, it's just it's gonna be very interesting. It's gonna be very it's your go getters are 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 and I know, but those two of them all popular just even before like Spireman, steam most popular. Oh yeah, find me it, find me especially in 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 and it'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 games and 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 to be, because there's so many? Yeah, there's so many of some of them are 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 I built this armor for.

My mom is usually in on all that shit. She watched it was just kind of like really, yeah, but everybody else on the Internet's losing their fucking minds. where? All I know is they eat these fucking candies they 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 watch what I got to your subtitles for. So yeah, and I have yet to I don't really care to watch it. No desire, although cowboy bebop, just drop there because apparently, I think. Are they doing a cowboy bebot in that flax wive action thing Netflix? Okay, I've never watched any of it by parent. It's a big thing. So I'm not a big anime guy. I know that why the last man show on Fx just got canceled. What's so? Why the last man? Don't know that. WHO's in that? I don't know. It's I know it's the live action show based on an anime and people fucking love it. And I saw today I got 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 action thing or this, I'm like cool, I probably not going to watch that either. Yeah, like death note. Didn't. Everyone said the death note thing on Netflix sucked. Cool. I've never watched death note, so I'm good. I'm all right. Yeah, and there I never watched attack on Titan. Didn't watch the live action thing. Like it was a live action 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 a walk out or some shit over the there's a bunch like some employees are doing a 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. I know 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 John Grout and your vouch for dropping or John Gurd and. Yeah, so apparently, like and no joke. He literally like called this black dude, said he had like Tire Lips. Oh, yeah, Fuck John Grut do. Yeah, he's right, shit, didn't do anything. Yeah. Then it comes out that he says Fagot MMMM and the email. MMM, they him. Yeah, and Chappelle is like kind of any special heat. I asked something about it. Yeah, and they're like yeah, that's kind of what he said in a special is like we can make fun of black people all day and a way, like, but soon as you go after that you're done. Right, and I was like, I kind of prove that's kind of interesting point. Then, yeah, like I said, I don't know, sorry dropping the F bomb, but that was like the only way to I give it. Yeah, I get it. Yeah, it's I we watched in South Park right now. They say that word a lot. That's kind 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. We see 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 spell special to really, you know, add anything of substance to that other than just that is kind of fucked up, but that's what did it, that the 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's exactly what he was referring to, and I was like, Huh, that's interesting. Yeah, I don't know, I kind of makes you want to watch spetals to say it's a special because I think people just hear trigger words and don't yeah, and that and I'm it's well, I'm not and I'm not 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're wrong. 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 and just know what was said, but I just I don't know, watch it literally be nothing. Yeah, I said the Work Trans or something. I don't know, our trains, but also trains, and they're like it's also one 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 maybe that wasn't a great but it died out after like a week. I didn't think he did anything bad in Latin that one, and and and I and I know and you talk. We talked about that one. But that's I'm saying is like the last one, whatever was said, people kind of seemed to get over it pretty quick. Yeah, this one's got everybody up in 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 Know Trans People. Yeah, that are think it's a great special and I know Trans People that hate it. Yeah, so I'm like, I am fucking like, 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 especially because I don't know. But it just doesn't mind that. Like like some people, like some Trans Evil, like yeah, it's love it, and now others are like, yeah, and there were black people that voted for Donald Trump. Where they black, though? Ha Ha. But seriously, I mean there work besides the hodge twins, candace Owen's and like diamond and silk and maybe his really, really really tan friends, if but it's just say 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, by the way, double check. Yeah, the recording. We're good. I keep 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've been I've been using it a lot, just and I'm always checking to make sure, I don't know what the fuck happened last week. That's so for those who don't know, because you wouldn't know, because there's no way you could know. We meant to do one episode last week and five seconds into the recording the software froze up, but we didn't catch it. I didn't catch it till we were done, two hours later. I look down on just when you got to be fine kidding. So a recording and I'm recording the backup straight to the board to so there will be something. She's just me saying, he saying the Al It's the only thing that's gonna make it through. But yeah, I my curiosity is definitely peaked, but not enough. I'm still not gonna. I'm still I gonna watch it, but it does kind of have me scratching my head a lot again because, like you said, like I have an lgbt plus fans who are fine with it and plenty more who are not, and I have straight friends who are straight friends who are fine with it and straight friends who are not. I have comedian friends who are fine with the comedian friends who are not. This one's really got people split. Watch it literally being I don't know, I'm just interested to see and be like well, that that really wasn't anything. I was just pushed. Yeah, you see him saying, yeah, I know it's so saying like it. I think it's one. I think it's honestly one of 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 because if it will, because the last one...

...was kind of middle of the road shit. Yeah, this one, I feel like this is either nothing or he 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 just going to prove it's just going to and he's thriving off of the attention right now. 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 a great look day for but you know, but I'm also not one of those like I don't thrive on people hating me. Yeah, it's his hatred. He just knows how to get people over out up. Yeah, but that's also never just been that's also just never been my style. Like it works for 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 want everyone to like me, please. I don't know. I don't think it 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. He said, yeah, it's because I told you, watch like the first five minutes, right. Yeah, and he said this is a last special I'm gonna do for a really long time. He's gonna go build his club and Yellow Springs and or his restaurant that has a club in it. So it's like 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 makes you 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 to stuff. Doesn't matter, especially around here. It's just people fly. You got people flying. He was doing those shows to come see him. So I 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't matter. 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 most people are because I didn't grow up around here. All my star Struck. I canna grew up around. Yeah, you, but I know you mean there's some people who, like Dave Chapelle, can do no wrong and for me you comedians are otherwise and for me he's just never been that. I didn't watch a show a lot when it was on on. I've watched it since and like the thing with the Wayne Brady episode's fucking Hilarious, like these done. So there's some really funny stuff on the show, but it was never one of those things that I was like the Holy Shit, this is the greatest thing I fucking ever fucking love. That show is a sophomore year in high school and came out me and like one of the person my I school watched it. My Buddy Jeff and I watch it. We're like the only ones one. And then finally my season two came out, people start watching because it was like the whole little Wayne EPIs not little it was it? Yeah, low Wayne, not a little wayne, it was a little John, Little John. Yeah, yeah, that's when I got huge. Yeah, but me and I remember being on the MTV movie awards and he's like 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, because the next time anybody saw him was on inside the actor studio. First interview he did, ever, that was with...

James looked in and he told James looked 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 smoking weed and playing ddparently, he's like a are playing world warcraft. Really is like 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't prepared for it and didn't like what it turned into. Well then, I don'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 fucking name on it? Yeah, and that blew everyone's mind. And what I liked was Netflix was like fuck it will pull it. Yeah, because he had done, you know, so so all those specials about that point and made 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 it was on there. I think the way he described that, he didn't know it was on there because obviously they great to that deal before any of that happened. So like well, that that or he knew. But you know, 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 cloud back, I think that was his way of going to Oh hey, by the way, like glad you guys love the show. I see no money from that. It's just the most insane thing. Yeah, it's that's to not get money from a show that's named after you. Yeah, that it was a fucking hilarious. My favorite bit, ever, is still the buying black white supremacist. So fucking funny. And that's the first, the last get 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, so he becomes a member of the claim. We just told him he was what and he grew up in a school blind, so all the kids thought he was what to divorce. This divorce this wife for being a lover best car is the very beginning, where the the white guys like doing the voice over for there. I said it.
