  it's 100 million dollars ya series [TS]

  wolframalpha told you about this you did [TS]

  i put it up on my dashboard I use it all [TS]

  the time I to figure out megawatts to [TS]

  watch the other day and it was for a [TS]

  joke really helpful [TS]

  I don't use it i tried i tried today [TS]

  earlier today I tried to figure out what [TS]

  percentage of the world's population [TS]

  oh who was represented by America [TS]

  there's seven billion people in the [TS]

  world and 340 350 what 400 million [TS]

  Americans now I i think that is the [TS]

  calculator you know this is one of those [TS]

  I want to get back to microblogging [TS]

  actually don't I on I'm really screwed [TS]

  up about that because of a Burger King [TS]

  commercial from the mid to late [TS]

  seventies [TS]

  remember when burger king for was first [TS]

  unearthed remember these days I know [TS]

  you're very young man but you be if you [TS]

  want to mcdonalds yeah anyway we've [TS]

  talked before about the grill order the [TS]

  relative grill water is encoding you [TS]

  call it like an exception you go in and [TS]

  you say kind of on the slide you say [TS]

  look I want to play mini burger i watch [TS]

  what i want and like you know in my case [TS]

  I would go in and say and the key to a [TS]

  grill McDonald's because i used to work [TS]

  there and I read the trades [TS]

  yeah i'm going to mcdonalds and you [TS]

  don't ask for extra something for not [TS]

  something it has to be not something [TS]

  that's hard to remove and i'll just tell [TS]

  you is an insider catch it is hard to [TS]

  remove [TS]

  huh you can tell you know very [TS]

  personally I've personally found ketchup [TS]

  is hard to remove [TS]

  hmm alright yeah but but ya know I would [TS]

  when I was a kid I would go into [TS]

  mcdonalds in order a plain hamburger so [TS]

  here's the key and I this is probably [TS]

  not going to brushy in this in the in [TS]

  this age of personalization and [TS]

  customization this will probably seem [TS]

  obvious but McDonald's you kind of [TS]

  screw-up the mcdonalds if everybody came [TS]

  in and asked for it as burger king would [TS]

  say to be made in their own way right [TS]

  you screw everything up because if you [TS]

  go to mcdonalds you could I went to [TS]

  mcdonalds once at midnight in chicago [TS]

  and there's a that's three mistakes in a [TS]

  row [TS]

  well and i was there and the members of [TS]

  a cult jam showed up and we're signing [TS]

  photos Lisa Lisa and cultures Alisa was [TS]

  not was not enforce it was it was just [TS]

  called champ [TS]

  anyway you go to a busy mcdonalds you [TS]

  know this you go to a busy mcdonalds [TS]

  anytime of day it's gonna be really [TS]

  really good mcdonalds not as good as [TS]

  when we were kids but good now thing is [TS]

  did you know you know about you know [TS]

  about wasting the idea of waste you go [TS]

  in and I'm i am I have an expert on [TS]

  wasting i'm presently wasting away [TS]

  you sound like a little bit head cold [TS]

  well it's allergy season [TS]

  Jesus you know what I'm doing I'm so [TS]

  deep in the stack right now I have so [TS]

  much to say about allergies the [TS]

  allergies climb up inside me and then [TS]

  they make themselves comfortable and [TS]

  right now they're all sitting [TS]

  like they have outfitted the inside of [TS]

  my head with those green the lure [TS]

  couches telling Shay's that were in all [TS]

  the dorm rooms in the eighties that like [TS]

  the seventies ones that are going to [TS]

  pick group full of dander whatsapp it [TS]

  group in order this big kind of s square [TS]

  couch pits comprised of in my case eight [TS]

  distinct pieces know it's kind of like a [TS]

  kind like watching Hollywood Squares but [TS]

  one parts missing when did you have I I [TS]

  thought that was a modern innovation [TS]

  when did you have one of those I'm gonna [TS]

  have to literally want to know what [TS]

  we're talking about [TS]

  I had a brown for lure pic group in [TS]

  college that because as you know it was [TS]

  the style of the time to be ironic in [TS]

  the way one furnished one semi [TS]

  development Elvis i can send you a photo [TS]

  off and I had an eight-piece pic group [TS]

  which means it's a large brown square [TS]

  that we actually i remember now i got [TS]

  getting it was finally she dropped a [TS]

  doobie and but but but yeah pick group [TS]

  anyway you're going to mcdonalds [TS]

  allergies yeah I had a super ball sized [TS]

  little yesterday just in size of the [TS]

  ball well as a small a small bouncy ball [TS]

  and I i get the allergy so bad i don't [TS]

  know if i got a cold forget that you [TS]

  think you got a cold which is now what [TS]

  happens is my allergies get in there and [TS]

  may they and then my mucous membranes [TS]

  become so that so enamored with the idea [TS]

  that something fuzzy is going to come [TS]

  tickle them [TS]

  yes but they're like welcome travelers [TS]

  it's like normal business it's like [TS]

  Norman fell says in the graduate right [TS]

  any one of them outside agitators get [TS]

  outside agitators they come in and get [TS]

  your mucus all excited they're just [TS]

  normally there to be like the the worker [TS]

  ants to capture various particular [TS]

  matter in the mucous but in this case [TS]

  they have been inciting to riot [TS]

  yeah and the rent my regular residents [TS]

  who were peaceful happy little normal [TS]

  villagers apply it compliant villagers [TS]

  who were just going about their duties [TS]

  being non-infectious [TS]

  they are like hey wait a minute we we [TS]

  demand equal time infecting your mucous [TS]

  membranes and then and now I'm like now [TS]

  I just basically I have the players like [TS]

  it's parade it's a beautiful sunny day [TS]

  in seattle well at the only thing that [TS]

  is obscuring the Sun is the clouds of [TS]

  histamine agitating pollen that's [TS]

  loading through the sky and I'm sitting [TS]

  inside like a like someone with the AIDS [TS]

  and you know a lot of people like they [TS]

  never been so glad I couldn't reach my [TS]

  bell [TS]

  they've learned to look like it right [TS]

  having fun they're like they have [TS]

  they're going on boat rides people with [TS]

  I can't do that its sound ah yeah yeah [TS]

  people people are living with AIDS not i [TS]

  live i can't live in the world with [TS]

  because because the pollen clouds [TS]

  here's the thing thanks Obama flame [TS]

  Obamacare the you know the problem the [TS]

  problem the problem with the allergies [TS]

  is it's a real ironical as we say is [TS]

  that is that the nicer the weather gets [TS]

  its changes in the weather the kitchen [TS]

  rings who's like filling up on bread the [TS]

  weather changes it gets nice you get a [TS]

  high pressure system coming in your [TS]

  place you know pretty soon i'm doing [TS]

  this whole dick now that my family is so [TS]

  nice about it but I make a sound as I [TS]

  walk around the house in the morning I I [TS]

  sound like I sound like some kind of [TS]

  spanish bowl [TS]

  yeah I know it's coming someone has [TS]

  already put two daggers have a sword [TS]

  into your like it's got a peek at door [TS]

  and he just dog you're limping around [TS]

  with blood streaming out of your nose [TS]

  yeah well so here's the latest in [TS]

  appears the latest thought innovation ok [TS]

  someone suggested to me the other day [TS]

  you remember many years ago I described [TS]

  to you the moment where someone said [TS]

  we're a friend of mine this friend [TS]

  Kristen said to me you are the most [TS]

  introverted person I've ever met i just [TS]

  noticed that some of the turning-point [TS]

  milestone and it was it was it was a [TS]

  thought technology that changed the way [TS]

  that I looked at myself [TS]

  everyday I i had a new thought [TS]

  technology and the latest new thought [TS]

  technology that somebody hit me to the [TS]

  day was they said i think you have sleep [TS]

  apnea I saw you two about this and I was [TS]

  like sleep apnea and now I thought that [TS]

  was a thing for fat people [TS]

  she's that she said if there's at least [TS]

  a couple problems but she said well you [TS]

  are [TS]

  Oh fat enough to be saturated to obesity [TS]

  this is just a random person too and I [TS]

  said she's not a random person but but [TS]

  you know since not not somebody that [TS]

  should have intimate knowledge of my [TS]

  sleep miss and and so I was like how [TS]

  sleep apnea and i'm in and like a lot of [TS]

  mental technologies once i get ahold of [TS]

  and I turn it around in my hand like [TS]

  Frodo looking at the at the orb and i'm [TS]

  looking into it and then all of a sudden [TS]

  the flaming red I vaginas looking back [TS]

  haha is that sauron yes or on a sore on [TS]

  my vagina is staring at me then all of a [TS]

  sudden I feel cold and I'm thinking do I [TS]

  have sleep apnea because you're not a [TS]

  terrible feeling when you feel the truth [TS]

  descending on you look like a cold rain [TS]

  oh I'm worst so i'm looking online and [TS]

  is it all lines up your having that [TS]

  Bruce Willis moment where everything is [TS]

  flying by wright and spoilers but you're [TS]

  reeling through like the last hundred [TS]

  and eleven minutes and you go all right [TS]

  hide that red door knob it's going clack [TS]

  clack clack why can't I open the [TS]

  basement door shit John [TS]

  next time try to remember because i [TS]

  usually try to get as far away from you [TS]

  as possible when you're sleeping but out [TS]

  of you snore [TS]

  well so I never thought I was a snore [TS]

  see nobody thinks they're snore right [TS]

  now and all those years on tour where [TS]

  Eric course and Shawn Nelson were having [TS]

  like sawmill contests and I had to I had [TS]

  to jump up in the middle of night and [TS]

  grab the end of the mattress where they [TS]

  were but they were snoring away sharing [TS]

  a bed [TS]

  actually I grab the end of the mattress [TS]

  one time and and like yanked it like I [TS]

  was like I was trying to do the [TS]

  tablecloth trick [TS]

  like a little Smith's yeah like an [TS]

  illusion like yank this mattress out [TS]

  from under them and you don't either one [TS]

  of them woke up I can't believe it on [TS]

  wouldn't like that [TS]

  no he know he'd love that red pile onto [TS]

  high jinks [TS]

  butBut so anyway so lately i've been [TS]

  hearing reports unconfirmed reports [TS]

  because as you know i am mostly a [TS]

  bachelor that I had that is no I can't [TS]

  imagine it any further you've heard [TS]

  you've heard from from bystanders by [TS]

  standards unconfirmed sources and so so [TS]

  that so uh so I go online [TS]

  it's like somebody came up and said [TS]

  maybe a pancreatic cancer [TS]

  maybe you have maybe have cancer the [TS]

  bile ducts like Ray Manzarek oh and then [TS]

  you go online you're like cancer the [TS]

  bile ducts and you look at it it's got a [TS]

  lot of going to let that out tonight and [TS]

  you go oh fuck I have cancer the bile [TS]

  ducts because all the symptoms like that [TS]

  the symptoms for sleep apnea alright [TS]

  depression lack of focus tired all the [TS]

  time [TS]

  ear to bull grouchy think you know [TS]

  everything about the US Supreme Court [TS]

  like you just go down the list and [TS]

  everything on it is true i have all [TS]

  those symptoms and I'm like sleeping and [TS]

  then I started thinking about it and i [TS]

  have i have like these these suppressed [TS]

  memories are these like these repressed [TS]

  memories of waking up in the middle of [TS]

  the night unable to breathe of like of [TS]

  waking up like this type of wake up you [TS]

  ever wake up like that like like [TS]

  struggling for breath [TS]

  another thing that you ever happened to [TS]

  have happen well I mean little into this [TS]

  more later but I know a little bit about [TS]

  sleep apnea and I know that it's [TS]

  something that scares the living shit [TS]

  out of bed partners because people seem [TS]

  to stay they make that kind of noise and [TS]

  then they appear to just simply stopped [TS]

  breathing for a one-page well so my hair [TS]

  alone [TS]

  for a while but this so for many years [TS]

  Merlin one of one of my personal [TS]

  technologies has been a sound so much [TS]

  like a Scientologist [TS]

  that's good to eliminate bed partners [TS]

  Oh kill the messenger yeah exactly [TS]

  yes like if you want to have if you want [TS]

  to share the attention of a lady friend [TS]

  there are a lot of plate first of all a [TS]

  lot of places you can do that that isn't [TS]

  a bit then our beds and second of all [TS]

  just because that you just because you [TS]

  have been in bed with somebody just [TS]

  because you shared a bed together [TS]

  doesn't have to stay there [TS]

  yeah yeah like right about the time when [TS]

  everybody's getting sleepy [TS]

  you just do like those soft hifi did you [TS]

  like to pull the covers up a little more [TS]

  records on them [TS]

  yeah pull the covers of getting a gentle [TS]

  kiss on the forehead enough to wake him [TS]

  up bring a glass of water set it on the [TS]

  bedside table in case there was money on [TS]

  the dresser [TS]

  it's hit think to themselves when they [TS]

  wake up the middle of the night are [TS]

  plastic everybody thoughtful little [TS]

  passage and snore you know then here [TS]

  like at them but the the door goes click [TS]

  and then you're out on the street [TS]

  yeah and you can go get a burger you can [TS]

  do whatever you want [TS]

  so anyway I have not I have do not have [TS]

  a a tremendously large sample group of [TS]

  people who have spent the entire night [TS]

  with me what you say that is complicated [TS]

  you're like a film noir yeah right so [TS]

  like so like oh I in the middle of the [TS]

  night you were struggling to breathe and [TS]

  freaked me out no one has ever said that [TS]

  to me but that doesn't mean that's not [TS]

  happening right and so now then all of a [TS]

  sudden I'm having all these memories and [TS]

  it's like wait a minute am I am actually [TS]

  remembering waking up in the middle of [TS]

  the night struggling for breath multiple [TS]

  multiple thousands of times over the [TS]

  last 20 years or is this something where [TS]

  I am where I am or false remembering [TS]

  that I was bad touched and daycare [TS]

  that's an open memory right and it [TS]

  didn't actually happen i'm just it's [TS]

  just it's power of suggestion so all day [TS]

  today I've been sitting around thinking [TS]

  do I have sleep apnea is that is that a [TS]

  thing is it what is it one of those my [TS]

  isn't one of those technologies are [TS]

  technologies that all of a sudden i get [TS]

  to be one of those people who's like [TS]

  I thought I had all these problems on [TS]

  John there's there's so much about this [TS]

  is complicated because first of all yes [TS]

  it is a blessing and a curse to find out [TS]

  exactly what's wrong with you [TS]

  that's it's so awesome and so awful and [TS]

  and then second you got to go to a sleep [TS]

  clinic for guy people are going to [TS]

  people are gonna attach those little uh [TS]

  little sticky things to you the sticky [TS]

  pads are in there have a video probably [TS]

  with like that really unflattering [TS]

  greenlight they're gonna watch your flip [TS]

  around and watch it in fast motion real [TS]

  creepy like all i want to do is pull the [TS]

  covers up around them and then they're [TS]

  gonna come in 15 minutes and shape your [TS]

  way is honored by the by the side of [TS]

  their little console and say right haha [TS]

  I'm gonna go get a burger [TS]

  they're gonna come in there after maybe [TS]

  fifteen 15 minutes to an hour they're [TS]

  gonna come in they're gonna shake you [TS]

  awake to the extent possible check to [TS]

  see if you're still a lot and then say [TS]

  that the good news is you don't have Ray [TS]

  Manzarek answer the bags is you so [TS]

  completely fucking half sleep apnea and [TS]

  never did and then and then the real [TS]

  party begins [TS]

  you gotta get a machine to machine well [TS]

  but before we go there okay sorry man [TS]

  sorry [TS]

  the last time i went with my little baby [TS]

  girl to the baby girl doctor who's the [TS]

  actual the doctor herself is actually a [TS]

  full-grown woman a few doctors so on [TS]

  little baby girl doctor and and they [TS]

  just like they bad at each other like [TS]

  okay I'm thinking here I started running [TS]

  a little behind that one is still having [TS]

  nappies so I go in and she looks she the [TS]

  doctor looks in my baby girl's mouth [TS]

  with a flashlight and she says does she [TS]

  ever when you're like because i told her [TS]

  that i sometimes haunt my daughter's [TS]

  room in the middle of the night just sit [TS]

  sit in a chair and listen to breathe [TS]

  that's sweet and that it's not sweet i [TS]

  was a question and then so the doctor [TS]

  having already heard this was like that [TS]

  when you are creeping around your [TS]

  daughters are listening to breathe in [TS]

  the middle of the night did she ever [TS]

  stopped breathing for periods of time [TS]

  and I was like what do you mean what I [TS]

  mean stop breathing [TS]

  I mean yeah so [TS]

  times but she always starts again and [TS]

  she was like rides well because your [TS]

  daughter has a really large who've ulah [TS]

  ulah fluval liver and to their every [TS]

  only a yeah it's a little punching bag [TS]

  that hangs down or whatever maybe it's [TS]

  not that maybe it's tonsils there's [TS]

  something back there in the back of your [TS]

  throat one of the flesh is some kind of [TS]

  throat old obstruction a throw [TS]

  obstruction that the that that the baby [TS]

  doctor says is is just like genetically [TS]

  large in her and is brent probably [TS]

  causes her to have sleep apnea Parkhead [TS]

  and i was like huh really [TS]

  the doctor says probably not a big deal [TS]

  then maybe from the mouths of dates [TS]

  literally yeah and she said a lot of [TS]

  times what happens is as kids grow up [TS]

  they grow into their architecture their [TS]

  personal technology i said never [TS]

  happened to me but but [TS]

  so then so now I'm thinking oh maybe [TS]

  that maybe I am genetically predisposed [TS]

  to this maybe it isn't just that I'm [TS]

  kind of 40 pounds overweight or maybe [TS]

  that exacerbates a natural tendency so [TS]

  anyway the machines yet my have I have a [TS]

  close family member with the sleep apnea [TS]

  and this family member has a lot of [TS]

  luggage because this family member has [TS]

  to take a machine anywhere that he or [TS]

  she intends to sleep like one of those [TS]

  things where you see people walking [TS]

  through airports with the with the like [TS]

  an oxygen take know that smoking right [TS]

  now smokie might have something to do [TS]

  with that I think weight is a thing [TS]

  drinking drinking is a thing and I think [TS]

  there's probably yeah I think about wait [TS]

  I see I don't know I'm not a physician [TS]

  as you know John but when ya thinking [TS]

  will get into a bit but out but i think [TS]

  i think what it does is you put this [TS]

  real freaky looking thing over your nose [TS]

  and I guess it helps you from seeming [TS]

  like you're dead to to your bedmate but [TS]

  but but you know here's the other thing [TS]

  John and I don't you know I don't [TS]

  diagnose you here I don't know anything [TS]

  about all the [TS]

  these metal things you're talking about [TS]

  but I do know that sleep apnea i believe [TS]

  will make you not in the same way that [TS]

  you don't know you snore one knows does [TS]

  not know one source [TS]

  what does not know that one has sleep [TS]

  apnea you one is also not know how [TS]

  poorly one sleeps right so you're waking [TS]

  up there is the kind of waking up and [TS]

  I've done is I've tracked my sleep with [TS]

  the dingus and and yeah well I'm [TS]

  sleeping all i gotta do this for [TS]

  sleeping [TS]

  where did you go to sleep tracking bingo [TS]

  there's all kinds you can get it doesn't [TS]

  talk about that you know it'll tell you [TS]

  how well you're sleeping and becomes [TS]

  like a video game we try to get better [TS]

  and better sleep [TS]

  yeah and so on so much so every time I [TS]

  go to the doctor now always going to say [TS]

  though it is that is that the width is [TS]

  that you don't know like it just seems [TS]

  to me that you're not a great sleeper [TS]

  right now well that's what that's what I [TS]

  mean every time I go to the doctor they [TS]

  say do you have problems sleeping how [TS]

  how how do you sleep and I always feel [TS]

  like saying I'm asleep [TS]

  how do I know yeah but i mean i don't [TS]

  like to go to sleep and then once i do [TS]

  go to sleep I don't like to wake you [TS]

  will feel rested when you wake up [TS]

  no see that's what do people feel rested [TS]

  with my wake up [TS]

  well back to my dingus you know the [TS]

  dingus tells you basically have a very [TS]

  kind of describe this briefly because it [TS]

  is it's might be semi useful i really [TS]

  want to hear about this i think i've had [TS]

  two or three different guys for doing [TS]

  this and is actually an iphone app that [TS]

  you can use for this as well as soon as [TS]

  that work well do you really want to [TS]

  know I i already sleep with my iphone [TS]

  yeah that can figure out what you do is [TS]

  so iíve used a thing where you were a [TS]

  thing on your wrist and I had a really [TS]

  stupid looking watch you could do this [TS]

  with that wasn't useful i've had a thing [TS]

  called a Fitbit that you can wear on [TS]

  your wrist but this one is that the best [TS]

  option that I found it takes a little [TS]

  bit the ball I its that's right you are [TS]

  Pikachu you put this so it's this app [TS]

  and you plug in your iphone overnight [TS]

  you lay this thing on the corner of your [TS]

  bed kind of near pillow-like network and [TS]

  radiate your dingus [TS]

  it's a it's a separate finger its own [TS]

  iPhones an iphone app that uses the [TS]

  accelerometer to detect motion [TS]

  so you calibrate it by moving around you [TS]

  move so you'd flip it for the first time [TS]

  you flip over from your back to your [TS]

  stomach and see if it goes and so if you [TS]

  hear that you know it's working [TS]

  so then you just say ok I'm going to bed [TS]

  turning this thing on and when you wake [TS]

  up in the morning and i'll show you this [TS]

  graph of how much you moved [TS]

  whoa and so basically it tells you the [TS]

  show you this this crap that's actually [TS]

  really instructional and if you do this [TS]

  thing for a month he did for two weeks [TS]

  to talk a lot of good for a month and a [TS]

  little Tony like for some reason I get [TS]

  the least and poorest sleep on sunday [TS]

  nights like I don't know why but that's [TS]

  just like that's a pattern regular yeah [TS]

  I the LORD yeah but but what it does is [TS]

  it will show you like for example you'll [TS]

  see you'll see you you know everybody's [TS]

  got their own patterns for sleep with [TS]

  you have anxiety about monday i think [TS]

  anxiety about literally everything [TS]

  yeah I know but you have extra Monday's [TS]

  is that appointment hundred percent even [TS]

  on the job still yeah yeah it could be [TS]

  could be also that's like when i watch [TS]

  movies maybe but what it does is it will [TS]

  show you think of it this way to get [TS]

  like if you want to think of it simply [TS]

  in three basic states there's the kind [TS]

  of deep sleep [TS]

  there's a kind of like the waking sleep [TS]

  i guess so yeah I like their first four [TS]

  records and then you wake up a little [TS]

  bit and then there's a big spike for [TS]

  when you moved enough that you really [TS]

  wake so if you're going to take a leak [TS]

  you're gonna see a giant spike right I'm [TS]

  saying to you is this could be i will [TS]

  send you a link to this it could be very [TS]

  instructional and it will cost anything [TS]

  you have to wear something on your nose [TS]

  but it will show you how much you stir [TS]

  and and anyway i think that could be [TS]

  really it is constantly like one of the [TS]

  reasons that I don't like to sleep with [TS]

  somebody else in my bed so many reasons [TS]

  there's not out of what i say sleep with [TS]

  i am not using them [TS]

  that's not a euphemism now having the [TS]

  sexual congress [TS]

  I mean actually being asleep in a place [TS]

  with somebody else also sleep so weird [TS]

  it's really weird like that i don't know [TS]

  what they're like in the old days where [TS]

  you had to keep warmer or or you had to [TS]

  shelter against bears I could see why [TS]

  you would all piled together in a cave [TS]

  but now you could be separate places [TS]

  like your soccer players that are [TS]

  getting ready to other you gotta stay [TS]

  warm that's one thing right right we [TS]

  don't we don't put next to each other [TS]

  like while we sleep next to each other [TS]

  thankee Thank You exactly well anyway so [TS]

  one of the reasons i don't like to do [TS]

  that is first of all the people are warm [TS]

  and I'm trying to touch you but another [TS]

  reason is that when ice when I sleep if [TS]

  I go to sleep in a bed when I wake up in [TS]

  the morning it is like that bed is [TS]

  Oklahoma and I was a club f5 tornado the [TS]

  blankets are not only she-she-she the [TS]

  trailer park and she is literally a [TS]

  trailer park [TS]

  there's nothing left of her except her [TS]

  foundation but like the blanket is not [TS]

  on the blanket often times does 5 or 6 [TS]

  360 is in the night you know the lyrics [TS]

  are you a flipper [TS]

  oh the Janoskians flipper but like a [TS]

  spinner and sometimes I'll wake up and [TS]

  my head is down at the feat mø and the [TS]

  I can't sleep I hate hotels because they [TS]

  all use such cheap sheets now except for [TS]

  the really expensive ones and so that [TS]

  did the bottom sheet is ripped off the [TS]

  mattress pad is ripped off [TS]

  I'm sleeping on a bear officers not [TS]

  dividing with with your back [TS]

  yeah I'm night fighting with the bed [TS]

  that's exactly what i'm doing like to [TS]

  try trash beds and so if there's another [TS]

  person sleeping in the bed i'm so [TS]

  self-conscious about now that even [TS]

  injuring them that I could that I almost [TS]

  never go to sleep I just lay there and [TS]

  stay there and and silently curse [TS]

  humanity curse the fact that I that I [TS]

  ever liked a person enough to have ended [TS]

  up in this untenable scenario where we [TS]

  are we're in a bed together [TS]

  John that's that that society you know [TS]

  it is society i agree that they don't [TS]

  have those problems in soviet russia may [TS]

  I hate to say and I'm not a clinician [TS]

  but yeah I mean if you're 31 well I you [TS]

  know I do what I can we've got a much [TS]

  nicer inflatable mattress now by the way [TS]

  and can I just say I don't be a dick [TS]

  about it but in retrospect this could be [TS]

  my bruce willis moment maybe the fact [TS]

  that our previous two inflatable [TS]

  mattresses are are like a fucking taco [TS]

  bell taco or because you which closes [TS]

  the spinner i'm just bitter don't tell [TS]

  us there's a skinny lady [TS]

  I thought a spinner was some I thought [TS]

  it was a brother of variety of UFO you [TS]

  heard the term spinner for a skinny lady [TS]

  yeah midnight maybe it's a talent you [TS]

  know why don't you I think you're [TS]

  talking about a small diminutive gal [TS]

  yeah yeah like a witch call it a gleek [TS]

  you recall the little guys but put some [TS]

  some some skinny girls are actually [TS]

  really tall right let's pick one of [TS]

  those got a high center of gravity [TS]

  yeah I'm just saying you might have been [TS]

  the one who fucked up our mattresses but [TS]

  anyway that's all beside a lot of things [TS]

  I probably responsible for No Child I [TS]

  don't want you know really taking you [TS]

  don't take anything for that is that [TS]

  it's not as I am I should have a peanut [TS]

  butter sandwich [TS]

  yeah well is that part of your tack is [TS]

  the time and it's doing to avoid like [TS]

  allergy medicine to is that don't well [TS]

  here's the big i will take the shit out [TS]

  of some allergy medicine because stop [TS]

  this is not a bad i'm not kidding around [TS]

  with the allergies I don't feel like [TS]

  like almost all other drugs that that [TS]

  seek to alleviate symptoms I feel like [TS]

  more often than not the symptoms are [TS]

  something that you deserve and we used [TS]

  to do you think because you live in the [TS]

  middle age that's right you should be in [TS]

  the center of those need to sit with [TS]

  that feeling [TS]

  that's right but like your women are you [TS]

  sick [TS]

  it's because there's something wrong [TS]

  with you and you can see if you SAT by [TS]

  yourself with your sickness a little bit [TS]

  longer i right you if you have a fever [TS]

  then you should be in your hotness if [TS]

  you're have children should be in Europe [TS]

  shivering this and if you are if you [TS]

  have a mental illness you should be in [TS]

  the middle of it and that and and see if [TS]

  maybe the Virgin Mary appears yes [TS]

  yeah possibly a taco did you buy like we [TS]

  get this big costco ones i take my yeah [TS]

  the used to be that one was really [TS]

  expensive and now it's really cheap [TS]

  I'll take one of those a day and it [TS]

  makes each one particular claritin I get [TS]

  the off-brand get Clara tyne or whatever [TS]

  else some so somebody said something to [TS]

  me about claritin because I doesn't [TS]

  stimulants the stimulus John well that's [TS]

  see I was always an epidural nor [TS]

  ephedrine whichever you prefer [TS]

  I'm the person ever and I know what let [TS]

  me give you this marlon brando you're [TS]

  not familiar with it but it's a it's a [TS]

  kind of speedy thing that makes your [TS]

  sinuses turn into let go the Gobi Desert [TS]

  like no moisture can escape and it does [TS]

  terrible things had gotten a lot [TS]

  accomplished with that with the [TS]

  ephedrine the Federation bust up to your [TS]

  penis though so I didn't realize that i [TS]

  don't hardly i hardly use my penis gets [TS]

  any more but that's right I'm too fat [TS]

  butt butt butt so somebody was talking [TS]

  about Clarence and I was like you know [TS]

  one time I ran out of ephedrine efrain I [TS]

  can't because I carry a large quantity [TS]

  of it with me in advance of allergy tax [TS]

  and I was in Germany and only now you [TS]

  take it as a prophylactic you actually [TS]

  don't use it as a medicine if I'm smart [TS]

  yeah i was in Germany and I ran out and [TS]

  i went to a pharmacist and I was like a [TS]

  high [TS]

  a gutin talk uh I need some discontent [TS]

  seemed fine though said the address and [TS]

  I i made some of this it's very simple [TS]

  small matter just give me some of this [TS]

  effort and I will be on my way [TS]

  a goose coats dr. Shin and the German [TS]

  pharmacist said 099 this is a controlled [TS]

  substance in Germany you cannot have [TS]

  this it is a it is a schedule 5 drug [TS]

  they love Danny things and you cannot [TS]

  happen it's terribly this terrible [TS]

  medicine we will give you a much better [TS]

  German allergy medicine which was made [TS]

  out of like that he went back and got [TS]

  his mortal mortar and pestle and email [TS]

  they make you some kind of a nasal [TS]

  poultice yeah he he took a couple of [TS]

  lavender leaves and some and like a half [TS]

  a shot of Jagermeister and like some [TS]

  shit that he pulled out of his ears and [TS]

  he was like this is you know this is [TS]

  much better this is naturopathic remedy [TS]

  and I threw it in his face I was like [TS]

  fuck you [TS]

  scheisse I want my shit and i actually [TS]

  had somebody in the united states air [TS]

  mail me some evidence against the law [TS]

  but you just don't care i'm starting to [TS]

  empty the what era are we talking about [TS]

  here the nineteen nineties sort of in [TS]

  the nineties in here anyway so i always [TS]

  use it as a prophylactic drug i take a [TS]

  look when the allergy season starts to [TS]

  take a little bit of it and and usually [TS]

  keeps me it keeps the algae to pay but [TS]

  this year I was filled with strong i was [TS]

  high on the hog and i flew too close to [TS]

  the Sun I said I don't need this [TS]

  I don't need it I'm strong now see how [TS]

  strong I am [TS]

  I'm strong and I was away from the house [TS]

  and then the allergies descended upon me [TS]

  and by the time I got to my pills [TS]

  it was too late mm anyway long story [TS]

  short too late i took one of those [TS]

  claritin the other day and a couple of [TS]

  evidence and I was in a home i was in a [TS]

  marshmallow candy land all day it was it [TS]

  really screwed me up [TS]

  I don't think that's Clarence did it [TS]

  might have been mixing the drugs I can't [TS]

  believe you take ephedrine no no I mean [TS]

  like I I got used to hearken telling a [TS]

  crazy person that I mean it seems like [TS]

  that would be outside your perimeter [TS]

  I don't abuse it I mean I don't take it [TS]

  for like recreational purposes i'm out [TS]

  like a 25 milligram ephedrine plus y [TS]

  fencin one of those little yet red ones [TS]

  how well the little red well years ago [TS]

  they started adulterating it with [TS]

  guaifenesin I think it's time for this [TS]

  now it's an expectorant but basically [TS]

  tried to fuck it up as I think I've said [TS]

  on numerous occasions when I was in [TS]

  college you can get 54like to 9500 and [TS]

  then i started i think i've told you [TS]

  this i have a have any cell spreadsheet [TS]

  tracking the cost over the years finally [TS]

  right around the time not long before I [TS]

  started getting actual real [TS]

  medication nah it was something like 50 [TS]

  thirty fifty dollars for a for like a [TS]

  bottle of I mean it was really 5230 [TS]

  fifty dollars that's gonna get a Wolfram [TS]

  Alpha it became a very very costly and I [TS]

  had to get from other countries what [TS]

  they have what they have it for sale in [TS]

  other countries well I mean I had to do [TS]

  a little bit of grain market trading to [TS]

  get it but I'm used to Jews bitcoins yes [TS]

  like I couldn't see if I did [TS]

  clicking in the CIA but money and I mean [TS]

  how many bitcoins do you think I don't [TS]

  understand that coins i googled it once [TS]

  and because it sounded interesting i [TS]

  mean like i was just you know in my pjs [TS]

  and research it's not very interesting [TS]

  but i can that's only good for small it [TS]

  well I am I i went in and tried to [TS]

  figure out like okay it's one of those [TS]

  things like what like any fad you go [TS]

  like okay i'll try macrame I'll get a [TS]

  starter kit and i know i'll go by ten [TS]

  dollars for the bitcoins I'll go to a [TS]

  website i don't fucking understand what [TS]

  it means and your websites that i know i [TS]

  know from websites but i like it i like [TS]

  it's us out was that you go and meet [TS]

  somebody sketchy at a starbucks and then [TS]

  something happens when you have to meet [TS]

  people in the real world to get bitcoins [TS]

  I see this is what i don't understand i [TS]

  think there is there some kind of like [TS]

  Google ATM for them now but if I could [TS]

  bind them i find you of all people would [TS]

  be mining bitcoins somewhere is that we [TS]

  play it play video games and build a [TS]

  fake tower [TS]

  no I think you have to set up some kind [TS]

  of maybe maybe you set up a website that [TS]

  interprets captures when you get a farm [TS]

  you get a farm right and you click [TS]

  account and you have a bit to come and [TS]

  save your heart [TS]

  how many bitcoins you think Marco got [TS]

  when they sold favored 22 you know Mark [TS]

  guy's name two let's go to school to [TS]

  what you might call it to the to the [TS]

  yahoo he micro-blog actually macro [TS]

  blogged about that today and in a very [TS]

  very nice post [TS]

  I think he got to get pretty pretty good [TS]

  handful of bitcoins for that point 100 [TS]

  million he's you know what this isn't [TS]

  that's not interesting but well I'm not [TS]

  talk about it if you want but i'm very [TS]

  interested in your nose and your [TS]

  ephedrine you know i didn't realize i [TS]

  told you this when i write up [TS]

  of old autobiography and I knew that [TS]

  there was a lot of there were a lot of [TS]

  stimulants involved in his career due [TS]

  for a while [TS]

  sure I just always assumed that it was [TS]

  like I don't know like some kind of [TS]

  speed I didn't know that they were just [TS]

  chugging down federer and I was like wow [TS]

  it was a reason I liked you guys ever [TS]

  talk about the time I was hitchhiking [TS]

  and in Wyoming and i'm standing on the [TS]

  side of the road in my hitch hiking [TS]

  outfit which was blue jeans and a blue [TS]

  jean jacket yeah it's like jon voight [TS]

  Midnight Cowboy [TS]

  yeah but that was my dad got me if I [TS]

  told you this dunno if that's cowboy [TS]

  country and this jump is semi truck [TS]

  pulls and in all the years of [TS]

  hitchhiking it was very very very rare [TS]

  for me to ever get a ride in a semi [TS]

  truck now if I was a if I was a 20 year [TS]

  old girl i think i would have been [TS]

  riding semi-trucks all across America I [TS]

  bet there's a 20 year old girl shaped [TS]

  seat in that car [TS]

  yeah yeah and if you talk to hitchhike [TS]

  errs which I don't recommend a lot of [TS]

  them will tell you stories about [TS]

  semi-trucks like that and they're great [TS]

  hitchhiking store that you know they're [TS]

  all great at writing stories are semi [TS]

  truck the stories you know they're like [TS]

  all the colorful ones [TS]

  well yeah because they're because either [TS]

  they're i mean i don't think there are [TS]

  any 20 year old girls that hitchhike [TS]

  anymore but there but used to be but I [TS]

  also people people who hitchhiked [TS]

  bye-bye haunting truck stops and like [TS]

  walking up to drivers and say hey man uh [TS]

  can i hitch a ride with you I don't even [TS]

  know if that happens anymore [TS]

  listen you never it's like I mean [TS]

  seriously Jost it's like they've never [TS]

  seen an episode of quincy like why would [TS]

  you do that well because you get a free [TS]

  trip across the world to play with the [TS]

  CB if you know what I mean exactly so [TS]

  but but for me as a guy who looks like [TS]

  me in my denim tuxedo standing on the [TS]

  side of the road my thumb out semi truck [TS]

  drivers went by me [TS]

  501 our and every one of them at his [TS]

  middle finger in the air like no truck [TS]

  driver was ever going to stop for me [TS]

  that's that's not nice [TS]

  it's just the way it is it's just that [TS]

  it is just the economy of the hitch [TS]

  hikin road for this guy who's making his [TS]

  living in the truck to share his space [TS]

  and time with somebody he has to presume [TS]

  that that person has something for them [TS]

  or has something for him you know what I [TS]

  mean like hey come on into my cab quid [TS]

  pro quo good broker if this man's Rock [TS]

  and keep plucking brocro ask gasps [TS]

  forecasts kash ask browser cache God [TS]

  doesn't get credit [TS]

  okay thanks anyway so this semi truck [TS]

  comes comes up your bird skull and I'm [TS]

  like fuck I'm out here in the middle of [TS]

  wyoming and i'm getting a ride in a semi [TS]

  this is my this is my lucky dad and the [TS]

  guy pops open the door he looks down at [TS]

  me and I'm standing there with my dusty [TS]

  bag and like hey man he looks down he [TS]

  goes oh fuck I thought you were my [TS]

  brother [TS]

  no yeah and I was like oh sorry I mean [TS]

  you were my brother like a long-lost [TS]

  brother or somebody from the area well [TS]

  so so I'm like you know so I'm kind of [TS]

  shrug and triggered my shoulders i'm [TS]

  like so I'm not but uh here we are [TS]

  and he's like ah alright get up you know [TS]

  come on get in [TS]

  and so I get in the truck and we start [TS]

  start off down the road he's like yeah [TS]

  you look just like my brother and I went [TS]

  by you 20 minutes ago and I was sure you [TS]

  were my brother and so I got off at the [TS]

  next exit and I drove back by you go the [TS]

  other direction and I was really sure [TS]

  you remember so I got off a bad except [TS]

  and turned around and came back and and [TS]

  I and it's not and you're not him [TS]

  and I was like wow I mean would I was [TS]

  your brother like would your brother be [TS]

  out here hitchhiking here in the middle [TS]

  of wyoming and he was like he just [TS]

  escaped from prison [TS]

  no I mean and we're driving any points [TS]

  over the points over his left shoulder [TS]

  at the prison and we're driving by that [TS]

  his brother supposedly just jump just [TS]

  broke out of them it's a weird enough [TS]

  i'm sorry so we're going to think for me [TS]

  to say but then it must be triple weird [TS]

  when it kind of makes sense [TS]

  it totally makes sense i'm wearing all [TS]

  denim no that's classic just broke out [TS]

  of prison we're just throwing out a [TS]

  prism they called the workhouse i'm [TS]

  standing on the interstate with my thumb [TS]

  out which is not a place if you if [TS]

  you're doing anything exciting prints [TS]

  and in a denim outfit thumbing a ride [TS]

  with the dusty bag [TS]

  yeah and on Interstate which is not a [TS]

  place where people normally was anyways [TS]

  just wasn't near an exit [TS]

  it wasn't near an exit and there a [TS]

  reason that high the reason i was [TS]

  standing there was that I had just [TS]

  jumped off of a freight train and [TS]

  climbed over the fence and then I was at [TS]

  this interstate man was like well might [TS]

  as well so I was I was like five miles [TS]

  between exits just standing out here [TS]

  like across the street from a prison [TS]

  that I hadn't noticed [TS]

  and so we're driving along and it's just [TS]

  like to disappointment in the cab is [TS]

  palpable because he's he's bummed that [TS]

  I'm not his brother and I'm kind of [TS]

  bummed that I'm failing to meet his [TS]

  expectations because as a hitchhiker you [TS]

  kind of want to be is the kind of part [TS]

  of your job you want us to write yet to [TS]

  read the room a little bit you gotta [TS]

  know when to just shut up or you got no [TS]

  one to agree you know when you get into [TS]

  the sleeper right you got to know when [TS]

  this was a big mistake [TS]

  you gotta you know you gotta know when [TS]

  wait a minute why are the locks on the [TS]

  doors filed down like every breaker she [TS]

  have to keep your eyes peeled [TS]

  anyway so then he says you got any drugs [TS]

  as a matter of fact I do have some dates [TS]

  you had some trucker speed [TS]

  well i did not i had some I had some [TS]

  marijuana and some ecstasy and some [TS]

  mushroom they've allowed at the time and [TS]

  he had a trailer yeah and I don't really [TS]

  didn't say what was in it and then he [TS]

  said oh alright well this is probably [TS]

  gonna work out fine because i have this [TS]

  trucker speed and he had these cross [TS]

  tops which I have never done at that [TS]

  time [TS]

  oh and so we did a little like i'll give [TS]

  you some of my hippie drugs for your [TS]

  truck or drugs and now we're like now [TS]

  we're in an American seen ya throw me [TS]

  Idol I throw you the whip [TS]

  I don't even have to be your brother now [TS]

  we're all brothers and and you know we [TS]

  drove all the way to cody wyoming [TS]

  together cats that that's a great epic [TS]

  harry chapin song like those girls [TS]

  performed by oh Henry my god John [TS]

  that's incredible and so so that was [TS]

  your introduction to to the effect that [TS]

  was my introduction to speed as a [TS]

  because I because up until that point I [TS]

  I my drugs were all hippie drugs you [TS]

  said in the past that you if I may in in [TS]

  the past you if i understand correctly [TS]

  you have preferred the gown facing drugs [TS]

  down facing drugs right or like [TS]

  mind-blowing drugs but I i was never [TS]

  white white powder-like [TS]

  performance-enhancing drugs that was [TS]

  intact it was it just wasn't where I was [TS]

  coming from [TS]

  I felt like those were greased or drugs [TS]

  those were drugs that works for the [TS]

  socialist that's for the socials exactly [TS]

  that's for people who pop their collars [TS]

  and a hopped-up it's for Robert Downey [TS]

  jr. in less than zero that's what i was [TS]

  talking about and I didn't want to end [TS]

  up that I didn't want to end up getting [TS]

  pegged at a hotel room in vegas and [TS]

  that's a lot less likely to happen to [TS]

  you if you're like a mushroom take her [TS]

  you know you don't get pegged on [TS]

  mushrooms [TS]

  you're not gonna get so strung out on [TS]

  taking mushrooms that year ended up [TS]

  getting pegged in a hotel room for [TS]

  right and that is basically said [TS]

  sometimes you sound a little like [TS]

  physical stuff that's basically the guy [TS]

  that's got the mushrooms yeah he doesn't [TS]

  want to pay you either [TS]

  now he just wants to talk that talk to [TS]

  that cartoon cat right you both want to [TS]

  go look at the Zamboni at the ice rink [TS]

  and talk about how it looks like a giant [TS]

  dinosaur insect huh that's what you want [TS]

  to do on mushrooms you don't want to you [TS]

  don't want to lick and have get pegged [TS]

  or before be a bigger so I mean you say [TS]

  she's just to trace back for a minute [TS]

  you're in the cab with that guy [TS]

  obviously now you yes i'm going to talk [TS]

  about you you know broken the ice a [TS]

  little bit did you arrive was there some [TS]

  kind of an equilibrium with what you [TS]

  shared with each other did you know [TS]

  obviously he probably had the marijuana [TS]

  before but yeah boy that's a no she did [TS]

  you take it right there you have the [TS]

  cross stop right there [TS]

  yeah yeah baby give me give me some and [TS]

  and i wanna commingled know that 10 yeah [TS]

  those we have more than one I had a [TS]

  couple okay thatthat's a therapeutic [TS]

  dose yeah it was enough that i was [TS]

  subject to this point where it's like [TS]

  martinis you know like yeah that's like [TS]

  Dorothy Parker says you know i mean i [TS]

  remember the exact quote because I take [TS]

  adderall but better but yeah you know [TS]

  what's not enough in whatever is too [TS]

  many and if you have a new people who [TS]

  would take 45 and then I think you [TS]

  probably build up a tolerance [TS]

  well apparently you know the thing is my [TS]

  piece of ephedrine was fair it was [TS]

  long-lived and in retrospect really [TS]

  quite responsible compared to a lot of [TS]

  people i discovered that the fucktards [TS]

  who were ruining it for everybody [TS]

  where the people who didn't know what [TS]

  they were doing they would go out and [TS]

  they would take five or six like they [TS]

  were st. Joseph's baby aspirin and I [TS]

  think two is responsible amount to you [TS]

  know make a lot of courtroom exhibits in [TS]

  my experience [TS]

  well but I had a lot of got a lot done [TS]

  John one of the things about speed at [TS]

  least for me is like the whistling the [TS]

  high pitch whistling in your head that I [TS]

  would think that would get a lot louder [TS]

  when when you took five I would want to [TS]

  be that all I don't like I don't like [TS]

  feeling my heart beat at all right right [TS]

  i don't like really feeling it and I [TS]

  don't when you take enough edren for a [TS]

  while in my experience you get this [TS]

  thing where like [TS]

  you feel your heartbeat one number three [TS]

  you feel alerting in your heartbeat but [TS]

  number two this is the weirdest part you [TS]

  know that you're about to feel a lurch [TS]

  and your heartbeat [TS]

  mmm seen out now with you and your down [TS]

  facing Melvin drugs you probably never [TS]

  got that but you were lucky to feel your [TS]

  heart continues to beat amen [TS]

  but i but that began me on a course [TS]

  where the next step is because up until [TS]

  that point in time [TS]

  people used to our offer me cocaine all [TS]

  the time and I would always say no [TS]

  because i was taking well ya tengo there [TS]

  was no good way that that was going to [TS]

  end for me but then after this after [TS]

  this trucker speed experience I was like [TS]

  hmm i'll try your cocaine [TS]

  oh it was it was gateway a pill was it [TS]

  absolutely was the man that it was like [TS]

  okay speedy drugs let's see what let's [TS]

  see where this leads headed by case that [TS]

  led into no good place I never I never [TS]

  ended up getting pegged or doing any [TS]

  taking in the in any kind of Las Vegas [TS]

  scenario RT now but well no that's the [TS]

  thing I've been now Jon get sleep at [TS]

  them you don't but you don't you don't [TS]

  fail to remember things that happened to [TS]

  you when you are on when you on and [TS]

  federal [TS]

  how do you know that's true Dec a lot of [TS]

  people write novels about the few state [TS]

  good point i don't know i don't even [TS]

  know if it's a point in time I one time [TS]

  decided that I was going to make a [TS]

  stencil like an art an art stencil you [TS]

  know what I'm talking about [TS]

  yeah you mean like sort of like the [TS]

  thing somebody would like spray-paint [TS]

  graffiti kinda thing we go one of those [TS]

  kind of Frenchy not feed yard stencils [TS]

  all your friends like a French curve yet [TS]

  you are you're not going to like draw [TS]

  something with a stencil you want to [TS]

  make one from whole cloth i want to make [TS]

  a make a stencil small cloth and so I [TS]

  spent because i was on because i was on [TS]

  upper drugs i spent like five hours [TS]

  drawing [TS]

  driving this thing in drawing this [TS]

  picture in like the my nudist to do [TS]

  things like in the middle of the party [TS]

  yeah yeah exactly is sitting on a couch [TS]

  in the middle of a party drawing and [TS]

  just like just like so focused and you [TS]

  would need you need a precision laser [TS]

  laser to have cut this thing out because [TS]

  you made a rococo stencil it was like I [TS]

  was I was drawing i was drawing things I [TS]

  was drawing things that a single bed of [TS]

  pencil was not was with too thick to [TS]

  make the lines that I had in mind [TS]

  and then when I looked at it later i was [TS]

  like what the flock drugs i still have [TS]

  it i kept i would love to see that and [TS]

  can I just say you would have fit right [TS]

  in in our pic group because because [TS]

  there was a lot of ephedrine and then [TS]

  there was a lot of a lot of the [TS]

  marijuana but you guys didn't go though [TS]

  you guys didn't go in the direction of [TS]

  smoking weed on the suburbs I and no no [TS]

  not at all [TS]

  I i think i told you once i'm done [TS]

  cocaine exactly once really did [TS]

  absolutely nothing for me [TS]

  sure and it just it's you know what it [TS]

  is maybe I don't know it would be like [TS]

  dating somebody who's exactly like you [TS]

  know what I mean like a like I don't [TS]

  need more of this right and and you know [TS]

  and there's also the element of they [TS]

  know as Bill Cosby says and himself you [TS]

  know you know you know i just take this [TS]

  and it makes me more like myself what if [TS]

  you're an asshole like that's what [TS]

  worries me like if I had access to [TS]

  cocaine a guy that would be a Merlin I [TS]

  can't live with [TS]

  yeah we should i do that we should get [TS]

  the crack thing but i would like to talk [TS]

  about that at some point there's no [TS]

  there's nobody that is made better by [TS]

  cocaine everybody thinks they are yet [TS]

  the profundity of a heavy Rick games [TS]

  there is nobody made better by it and as [TS]

  you as you move either as you know [TS]

  nobody ever not made no they're not made [TS]

  better they they they they think that [TS]

  they are sparkling when really they are [TS]

  you know John god dammit your heart on a [TS]

  lot of seventies and eighties albums [TS]

  because as I think you have shown [TS]

  conclusively well what is your quote [TS]

  that they're all literally made of [TS]

  cocaine [TS]

  yeah and especially especially the [TS]

  Eagles right [TS]

  Hotel California made of cocaine at [TS]

  fleetwood mac rumors made of cocaine and [TS]

  that lets go okay you know her nose [TS]

  literally fell off after that album know [TS]

  you know here's the here's that the the [TS]

  terrible side of the story which is the [TS]

  Fleetwood Mac is playing tonight in [TS]

  tacoma kind i'm not there and the other [TS]

  than probably anything no it was recent [TS]

  I'm not tear is that yeah my friends in [TS]

  the cave singers tweeted earlier tonight [TS]

  that they they were pretty sure that [TS]

  Stevie Nicks was at the tacoma hill [TS]

  watching catch cash cab before the show [TS]

  which seemed seems like exactly right [TS]

  but I refuse to see Fleetwood Mac [TS]

  without christine mcvie and a lot of [TS]

  people went down on ya lot of people are [TS]

  down on me for saying that christine [TS]

  mcvie is the George Harrison Fleetwood [TS]

  mag I don't disagree with that but I [TS]

  think she's I think she's key I think [TS]

  she's crucial [TS]

  oh yes okay yeah yeah just just in terms [TS]

  of being a way to offset those other big [TS]

  personalities like i don't know i don't [TS]

  like shy like you yeah I really like you [TS]

  make loving fun and I like I like maybe [TS]

  three or four four songs but she's kind [TS]

  of a skipper for me [TS]

  oh I really I really like like three [TS]

  Fleetwood Mac records a lot [TS]

  yeah I like you fast-forward through the [TS]

  christine mcvie song smile [TS]

  ok rumors and i'm sorry mp3 generation [TS]

  rivers is just about perfect i know that [TS]

  could hardly be more cliche it's like [TS]

  saying i liked the Beatles the rumors [TS]

  rumors is a really really good record [TS]

  and into your point John the thing that [TS]

  you are arguably best at sequencing it's [TS]

  a very well sequence record yes [TS]

  don't you think that would have been a [TS]

  different record if you listen to [TS]

  fleetwood mac's rumors on shuffle it's a [TS]

  different different album altogether you [TS]

  put that record on and you start driving [TS]

  yeah and then you you're going north of [TS]

  this book and she gave them and then you [TS]

  get to decide to you flip the tape right [TS]

  around chewelah remember [TS]

  you can flip flip again depending on the [TS]

  edge like an insomniac ready to go bomb [TS]

  haha that route down Mick chula tavern [TS]

  but I mean that but yeah but I don't [TS]

  want to go see I don't want to go I want [TS]

  to see them Halen because she opposed [TS]

  wolo the fuck this is like three [TS]

  episodes it is she a punchy so she's not [TS]

  involved anymore she doesn't want to be [TS]

  a part of it and I think it's because [TS]

  Lindsey Buckingham is such a fucking nut [TS]

  bc i do not think he is off the cocaine [TS]

  I think he's still on the cocaine he is [TS]

  a very very frustrating character to me [TS]

  and I think that he's very frustrated [TS]

  and christine mcvie I don't want to [TS]

  bring everybody he seems like he's one [TS]

  of those guys that like he and you know [TS]

  if your listener Lindsay like I'm i hate [TS]

  to say this because first of all he is [TS]

  he is one of my top 18 favorite guitar [TS]

  players and you're an amazing guitar [TS]

  player Lindsay I'm going to assume that [TS]

  you're likely such a flaming like [TS]

  empirically flaming asshole he's just [TS]

  seems like the worst guy in the world [TS]

  and every note that he's ever played on [TS]

  a Fleetwood Mac record i can have no I [TS]

  can't find a thing about it [TS]

  even when he plays live on an acoustic [TS]

  guitar I don't think he's ever hit a [TS]

  sour note [TS]

  he's kicking ass right and left his [TS]

  don't have a solo record these four [TS]

  years ago and and it's it's impactful [TS]

  he's so coked up and yet he's like he's [TS]

  like it just just laying in these [TS]

  impeccable little bits and yet I can't [TS]

  find it [TS]

  I cannot find a single nice thing to say [TS]

  about him as a as a person it's not that [TS]

  he's ever done anything bad it's just [TS]

  that every interview I've ever watched [TS]

  them like Oh what an asshole [TS]

  oh my god anywhere even have this [TS]

  conversation and all knowing what we [TS]

  know about Fleetwood Mac having watched [TS]

  the classic albums episode as I know we [TS]

  both have numerous times like it if I [TS]

  hope even hesitated for a minute to [TS]

  think that anybody in that band what [TS]

  would have I don't know how you would [TS]

  even ever talk to somebody again in that [TS]

  van got seven figures i know that he's [TS]

  listening and I feel bad about it [TS]

  because we we have we have criticized [TS]

  some of our listeners before and a lot [TS]

  of them have stuck around okay [TS]

  okay well let me just give you my bona [TS]

  fides I don't know if you followed the [TS]

  link i sent you a link [TS]

  absolutely well doesn't matter i just [TS]

  want to say this delivery personally [TS]

  oh yeah I'm glad you're here for this [TS]

  but I sent you a link to a a mash-up and [TS]

  as you know i'm not a mash-up fan but I [TS]

  sent you a link to attract from a [TS]

  mash-up album called feed the animals by [TS]

  girl talk and there's one section of [TS]

  this one song where they take as [TS]

  something Peppa one of those black robes [TS]

  with blonde hair bands sure and and [TS]

  layer it over the solo from gypsy oh I [TS]

  think I might have heard that and that's [TS]

  so low it tells a little story does you [TS]

  know walk you through it [TS]

  think about like gum and what's this one [TS]

  called you know that the rumor song but [TS]

  think about his his finger picking only [TS]

  an asshole could finger pick that well [TS]

  well this is the problem I think with [TS]

  music is that you can be terrible [TS]

  yeah as a person and and be connected to [TS]

  the column of light you can inflict it [TS]

  all about that it seems like you're no [TS]

  well I mean I am it is because I mean [TS]

  you've got access to the corridors of [TS]

  power you've met some flaming assholes [TS]

  yeah you've met a lot of flaming [TS]

  assholes but you've also had a lot of [TS]

  gifted people certainly it is it is so [TS]

  great to meet somebody like Charles [TS]

  missile and go oh my god you're so much [TS]

  nicer than me and so much more talented [TS]

  than me but you certainly must have met [TS]

  your share of people backstage we like [TS]

  this is the most execrable human being [TS]

  I've ever met but they can still play [TS]

  that guitar like ringing a bell [TS]

  first of all Charles bissell is is much [TS]

  more talented than I metal guitar but I [TS]

  would not argue that he was nicer than [TS]

  me but I see I see where you're coming [TS]

  from [TS]

  really he is nicer than you who really [TS]

  but we both dress like us a slightly [TS]

  retarded lesbians [TS]

  this is this is the basis of this gets [TS]

  back to the Oscar Wilde of the the [TS]

  terrible paraphrase of Oscar Wilde all [TS]

  it's the only thing worse than quitting [TS]

  Oscar was not quoting Oscar Wilde which [TS]

  is that you know great our great-great [TS]

  losing one Lindsay Buckinghams [TS]

  understand about losing to seems like [TS]

  carelessness I had this idea in my head [TS]

  and you have a New Yorker wild sounds [TS]

  yesterday island cartoon where I'm stuck [TS]

  in a fucking Island with oscar wilde [TS]

  like under coconut tree and I would [TS]

  strangle him after 12 no it's not Oscar [TS]

  Wilde a cartoon version of Oscar Wilde [TS]

  like like literally a cartoon an [TS]

  animated Oscar Wilde it sounds like the [TS]

  mushroom stocking job it's got kind of [TS]

  like making sounds like chef boyardee [TS]

  John as you know on this show we have a [TS]

  policy of not naming names [TS]

  yeah and so my question to you is have [TS]

  you met people that well if this is [TS]

  what's what's in the business called a [TS]

  leading question i suspect that you've [TS]

  met people that I know you're not a fan [TS]

  but there must be foot people you've met [TS]

  who you admire you look forward to [TS]

  seeing and then when you meet them they [TS]

  are either [TS]

  well then let's just stipulate that [TS]

  maybe they're as talented as you'd hoped [TS]

  but have you met people on the spectrum [TS]

  of like nice to butthole [TS]

  I mean there must be people where you go [TS]

  oh my god you're so cool and you're as [TS]

  good as I thought or my gosh you're so [TS]

  talented and you should really be [TS]

  literally living in hell [TS]

  I mean that the famous i have this [TS]

  sadness kind of profound roger daltrey [TS]

  nice guy right accepted kinda who my mom [TS]

  off my mom was really excited to meet [TS]

  him anyway he kind of looked up and down [TS]

  it was like you know here's your 7b and [TS]

  it in a bit like a computer programmer [TS]

  and then looked away and I was like yeah [TS]

  she's 70 should you know you're 65 [TS]

  asshole [TS]

  no Roger was nice but but I have this I [TS]

  had a kind of 1-2 punch with ryan adams [TS]

  one time where I was we were in [TS]

  Amsterdam and we were playing a show at [TS]

  a panda from cops called the called the [TS]

  parody cell [TS]

  and apparently so is this old church in [TS]

  the center of Amsterdam and has a big [TS]

  room which is this enormous kind of like [TS]

  Cathedral space with a big rose window [TS]

  and it's kind of the it's the it's the [TS]

  main big club an instrument and then [TS]

  there's an upstairs room which is more [TS]

  of like the club atmosphere you can put [TS]

  you know 300 people in there and so [TS]

  we're playing a show there we played [TS]

  there many times i normally uh-oh [TS]

  or rather exclusively in the club area [TS]

  the long winters of I've always played [TS]

  the club upstairs and we were playing [TS]

  there one night and ryan adams was [TS]

  playing the the theater below and so I [TS]

  went down and i'm sitting in this the [TS]

  third alchemy watching him soundcheck so [TS]

  it's it's just just him and his band and [TS]

  the only and I'm the only person in the [TS]

  room and i'm on the I'm like in the back [TS]

  of the third balcony all the way at the [TS]

  top of the theater and I'm just watching [TS]

  soundcheck and I've never been a fan or [TS]

  anything I didn't care about it but I [TS]

  just when I was just watching he's [TS]

  running through his rock band songs and [TS]

  I was like yeah whatevs [TS]

  and then he sent his band away and he he [TS]

  did one song with the acoustic guitar [TS]

  and harmonica and it was that song where [TS]

  he goes [TS]

  you stole all my records and you fucked [TS]

  all my friends you know what I'm talking [TS]

  about [TS]

  not sure but well he's got a song where [TS]

  he says he's stolen my records and you [TS]

  fucked my friends and then he plays the [TS]

  harmonica solo by records right now my [TS]

  friends we're going to weigh when [TS]

  harmonica and I'm sitting up in the in [TS]

  the theater and I'm like this is a [TS]

  fucking great song it really like [TS]

  holding room and I was the only one in [TS]

  the room but I was [TS]

  the room but I was [TS]

  rooted in the spot like this is [TS]

  incredible if I could do this if I could [TS]

  stand there with an acoustic guitar and [TS]

  harmonica and make that much music like [TS]

  why does he even have this band on tour [TS]

  with him whatever he doesn't need a bass [TS]

  player and drummer he doesn't all these [TS]

  amplifiers like this is a guy that's got [TS]

  it [TS]

  he's really got it and I i walked out of [TS]

  that sound check was just like got [TS]

  whatever anybody says about ryan adams [TS]

  i'm never gonna have a bad word to say [TS]

  about him again because that was that [TS]

  was an astonishing soundcheck and you [TS]

  know I i I'm I'm lucky that I have seen [TS]

  a lot of sound checks you know I get [TS]

  just kinda see bands do that thing where [TS]

  they we're just warming up and they they [TS]

  make that magical song and I've had it [TS]

  to myself where you doing a soundcheck [TS]

  you're running through a song in the [TS]

  room is coming together [TS]

  the sound is coming together you just [TS]

  like god i wish that i wish the room had [TS]

  been full to see that because that was a [TS]

  great that's kinda it's an intimate [TS]

  moment it's a moment where you feel [TS]

  relaxed singing this and you know it's [TS]

  listen you're just like here I go and [TS]

  you do the sound check and it's just [TS]

  incredible I've seen some amazing sound [TS]

  checks but this was one of them [TS]

  well so later on that afternoon I'm out [TS]

  in the PM about in Amsterdam that look [TS]

  at the lights plane which is a which is [TS]

  square that's very close to the Paradiso [TS]

  and it's a it's one of those big squares [TS]

  and amsterdam where they're all the [TS]

  restaurants have outside tables and [TS]

  everybody's drinking beer and their [TS]

  jugglers and there are people doing [TS]

  street art and there are a lot of very [TS]

  beautiful girls on bicycles with their [TS]

  little fucking bells their little like [TS]

  condescending bells as they're right [TS]

  trying to ride through this [TS]

  the this crowd of tourists singing thing [TS]

  me the stone tourists everywhere these [TS]

  like beautiful girls are just trying to [TS]

  get home to their tall houses their [TS]

  narrow narrow homes their narrow homes [TS]

  of their tall staircases and you're just [TS]

  sitting there at it in the light plane [TS]

  and it's like this is Amsterdam i'm [TS]

  having a time and there's a guy a street [TS]

  performer and he's got some marionettes [TS]

  and the marionettes one of them is [TS]

  playing the guitar and the other Mary [TS]

  and that is playing the piano and [TS]

  they're tall they're like [TS]

  three-foot-tall marionettes and he's out [TS]

  there performing and that's an easy one [TS]

  guys working marionettes he's working [TS]

  these to marry events one of the play [TS]

  the guitar one of them is playing a the [TS]

  piano and the he's got a boom box and [TS]

  they're like jamming to some tunes and [TS]

  I'm sitting I'm sitting there you know [TS]

  with my with my fanta and i'm watching [TS]

  this guy and I'm thinking you know how [TS]

  does a guy like this who made it [TS]

  obviously makes his own marionettes he [TS]

  comes out here into the lights plane [TS]

  he's jamming along to some Elton John [TS]

  what is to marionettes like what is this [TS]

  guy's life look like he he probably [TS]

  lives in a squat [TS]

  he's got a roommate that collects salt [TS]

  from around the room you know this guy [TS]

  is but there's some some girl that like [TS]

  collect salt but he's got a he's got a [TS]

  whole rack of salt from all it takes a [TS]

  lot of space in a narrow house you know [TS]

  and they're probably have a theater [TS]

  group and they probably do there's one [TS]

  of them is it agent John if you make [TS]

  your own maybe that's you need to work [TS]

  space you know he's got a workspace [TS]

  that's exactly right that he shares with [TS]

  a guy like Geppetto tools Geppetto tools [TS]

  they probably have a lot of terrariums [TS]

  in there squat that are there's probably [TS]

  plenty of macrame actually oh man and [TS]

  I'm thinking about this guy's life and [TS]

  I'm thinking about him and he's he's but [TS]

  the marionettes are really rocking out [TS]

  at this point [TS]

  and into the square comes Ryan Adams [TS]

  with an entourage of about six students [TS]

  that are all and they're all looking [TS]

  super duper duper hip you know it was [TS]

  before like the real skinny jeans era [TS]

  but they are looking like some new york [TS]

  skinny legged tousled hair lookin rock [TS]

  and rollers they look super cool and [TS]

  they walk into the square and I'm [TS]

  sitting I'm in a crowd of there's 5,000 [TS]

  people in the square so I'm just [TS]

  invisible and they're walking to the [TS]

  square and they're like and walking like [TS]

  it's hot like they're in the opening of [TS]

  hard day's night you know they're kind [TS]

  of like clicking their heels up and and [TS]

  they're pointing their fingers at people [TS]

  and they're walking in and sort of a [TS]

  phalanx you know like that right like [TS]

  migrating geese with right at the front [TS]

  and they come up to this guy who's doing [TS]

  his marionettes and I mean on one side [TS]

  of the marionette guy there's a juggler [TS]

  on the other side of the marionette guy [TS]

  there's you know somebody that's that's [TS]

  making balloon animals doing marionettes [TS]

  and a square takes enthusiasm and in [TS]

  focus oh he's this guy super focused and [TS]

  he's really he's really like into it [TS]

  yeah and this is the kind of alternative [TS]

  this is the kind of European alternative [TS]

  entertainment that has held europe [TS]

  european thrall for the last 2,000 years [TS]

  like he the this marionette act- the old [TS]

  John would have easily captivated [TS]

  Charlemagne you know it is at that level [TS]

  of sort of like clap clap breaking the [TS]

  barrier dentist and he's you know he's [TS]

  been doing this whole life anyway so [TS]

  right right at this craft this is crap [TS]

  right Adams and his entourage [TS]

  so what some of whom are in his band [TS]

  they come up on this marionette guy and [TS]

  you can see in their faces like hey all [TS]

  right and the marionette guy I'm [TS]

  realizing that the way he makes his [TS]

  money is both that he's got a hat out [TS]

  there and people throw money and as they [TS]

  go by [TS]

  but also every street performer and [TS]

  amsterdam a big part of the way they [TS]

  make their money is that people want to [TS]

  pose with them for photographs right [TS]

  that is like part of the deal and so [TS]

  Ryan like turns to his friends and he's [TS]

  like dude students did you get your [TS]

  camera's check it check it out check it [TS]

  out and he goes over and the marionette [TS]

  guys like all right I got a live one [TS]

  here and Ryan actually sits down at the [TS]

  little piano a little fake penis he sits [TS]

  down in a marionette piano sits down and [TS]

  a piano and he starts to he starts to [TS]

  pretend play the piano and the [TS]

  marionette guys like he's now he's [TS]

  working his Merry that's over time the [TS]

  dude playing the guitar and the other [TS]

  marionette is kinda like sitting at the [TS]

  piano stool with ryan and they are and [TS]

  his friends are taking pictures but the [TS]

  marionette guy is written like he's into [TS]

  it he's he's fully involved in the scene [TS]

  and saying okay if you want to play [TS]

  fucking marrying a piano I can do this [TS]

  that's right he is he is he is committed [TS]

  to this and ryan is like Papa dabba doo [TS]

  and he's singing about and he stopped to [TS]

  play the piano singing a song and i'm [TS]

  watching from over on the side and then [TS]

  it'd be it ryan gets up from the piano [TS]

  and it becomes apparent that to him and [TS]

  to his friends they had just given that [TS]

  marrying that guy the thrill of his life [TS]

  and the marionette guy who doesn't know [TS]

  who these kids are is he looking for us [TS]

  and guilders is looking for a couple of [TS]

  gilder or at this point euros because [TS]

  the transition have been made anything [TS]

  but he's not feeling like he just got [TS]

  I'm sorry but he doesn't feel like he [TS]

  just like that graced but by the ironic [TS]

  fake marionette piano playing a fucking [TS]

  Ryan Adams no he doesn't know who that [TS]

  he this is usually fully committed [TS]

  Mary noticed his you're wondering why [TS]

  they got the floppy hair and the [TS]

  reservoir dog guys aren't crossing his [TS]

  palm [TS]

  yeah and so and they all kind of stand [TS]

  there like fully ignore [TS]

  bring the marionette do now as they look [TS]

  at the pictures on their phones already [TS]

  moved on and the marionette guy is [TS]

  reduced to grabbing the his hat off like [TS]

  putting his bets down grabbing the hat [TS]

  and kind of walking over to them like [TS]

  hey that was fun right [TS]

  like put a little like poodle throw one [TS]

  in here or whatever and they like just [TS]

  completely give him the hey kid [TS]

  we gave you we gave you our autographs [TS]

  now like move along type of thing and [TS]

  marry that guys like 40 years old and [TS]

  maybe I'm a kind of March off on their [TS]

  on their on their hard day's night [TS]

  adventure and I'm sitting there having [TS]

  watched the whole thing and having seen [TS]

  him earlier in the day do this song that [TS]

  was still like ringing in my head and [TS]

  then and then watch him in real life [TS]

  kind of come along and and be so a and B [TS]

  walking through amsterdam one of my [TS]

  favorite cities in the world and just be [TS]

  blind to its and blind to what is [TS]

  happening and blind to everyone else in [TS]

  the world and blind to just like how do [TS]

  I mean and I'm and I'm watching a [TS]

  thousand people walk through the lights [TS]

  point and not see anything and just [TS]

  beyond their own stoner trip or whatever [TS]

  but the contrast for me it in just in [TS]

  the space of an hour to it really like [TS]

  in a way was kind of devastating to [TS]

  realize that somebody can make something [TS]

  really beautiful a song like that that [TS]

  is that that I felt like it wasn't just [TS]

  the performance but the song itself had [TS]

  something in it that showed until like [TS]

  like humanity humanity three precisely [TS]

  somebody perceiving something true and [TS]

  then to sit and see that same person [TS]

  incapable of perceiving something so [TS]

  simple [TS]

  as like their actual place in the world [TS]

  rather than the one that was being so [TS]

  reinforced by the by the entourage and [TS]

  by the idea and I mean I i I've had that [TS]

  feeling walking out of a club after [TS]

  soundcheck walking around town and [TS]

  feeling like everybody in this town is [TS]

  talking about me okay and then realizing [TS]

  that everybody in that town is talking [TS]

  about the baseball game [TS]

  there's really only a few hundred people [TS]

  that are talking about you but it's also [TS]

  i mean i guess this is embedded in the [TS]

  story but it's all it's kind of funny [TS]

  that like you're the only person there [TS]

  in the end up in the balcony be okay I'm [TS]

  great little much for the Humanities I [TS]

  feel amazing [TS]

  yeah i would be holding vigil in person [TS]

  there for this very humane performance [TS]

  like you have this like weirdly singular [TS]

  experience of apart from the you know [TS]

  Dutch sound guys you're the only person [TS]

  there we know more last to see this [TS]

  great performance but then in the midst [TS]

  of this busy leading square or whatever [TS]

  like you you have the same time you [TS]

  watched a completely different probably [TS]

  unintentional performance not of like a [TS]

  song but of like a of that person's [TS]

  interior bullshit like is it weird like [TS]

  you were the audience for something [TS]

  really amazing and then you're the [TS]

  audience for something really [TS]

  off-putting [TS]

  yeah and it was either like he would [TS]

  never think of that guy's another artist [TS]

  he's just some some dickhead and [TS]

  amsterdam and he treats him like a [TS]

  fucking hobo yeah right as well I'm [TS]

  sorry that that's really lame [TS]

  it felt like that time when I was [TS]

  sitting in the bathtub eating a sandwich [TS]

  having just smoked a pot this is a long [TS]

  time ago [TS]

  yea even then I'm sorry even then you're [TS]

  enjoying sandwiches in the top [TS]

  oh I was especially ya get well meatball [TS]

  sub in there [TS]

  the thing about smoking pot in the [TS]

  bathtub it is the thing I miss the most [TS]

  of all the drugs and really is to stick [TS]

  to cinema bathtub and smoke pot and eat [TS]

  a sandwich [TS]

  that's right in the pocket for you it's [TS]

  just it was so amazingly brings [TS]

  everything to get there doesn't it and I [TS]

  had to take the pot out of the equation [TS]

  because it pot is a bad it's really in [TS]

  mood [TS]

  Emma in the full scheme of things part [TS]

  is a net bad now it's so it's a net bad [TS]

  that bad but it's looking like such a [TS]

  good idea and it really doesn't [TS]

  and you know in their emissaries ISIL in [TS]

  their fifties that and 62 still think [TS]

  it's a good idea people smoke pot every [TS]

  day im so much punch on and as I've said [TS]

  many times I never I never woke up in [TS]

  jail and thought it was pot I was on pot [TS]

  last night and now I'm in jail like pot [TS]

  doesn't do that part is not bad in that [TS]

  way but boy pot is bad but it's sure [TS]

  great to smoke pot to be a better but [TS]

  one time I was sitting in my bathtub and [TS]

  there was and and i had put a load of [TS]

  laundry in downstairs mlo and the the [TS]

  washing machine was on the spin cycle [TS]

  and it was going to need ed in absolutes [TS]

  doing this like spin cycle noise from [TS]

  the basement but it it was it was [TS]

  echoing through the house it was [TS]

  vibrating the house and I'm lying there [TS]

  in the bathtub I'm kind of enjoying this [TS]

  vibration of the washing machine kind of [TS]

  freaking out downstairs and there's a [TS]

  jet flying over like a jumbo jet on its [TS]

  way [TS]

  just somewhere far away somewhere else [TS]

  where in the world full of people that [TS]

  were going to enjoy Seoul Korea and its [TS]

  high up in the sky and for a period of [TS]

  about 20 seconds the sound of the [TS]

  faraway jet and the rumbling of the [TS]

  washing machine created a harmony that [TS]

  was perceptible only to me in my bathtub [TS]

  in my stoner bathtub and it was a [TS]

  perfect chord was a light like it was [TS]

  for you it was absolutely for me because [TS]

  it was only nobody else even in a [TS]

  slightly different bathtub they would [TS]

  have not heard the same thing if you [TS]

  were in the kitchen you wouldn't have [TS]

  heard it but sitting here in this space [TS]

  it was a perfect mix and it was you know [TS]

  the but the sound of a jet overhead is a [TS]

  cord of itself it's not just a single [TS]

  note it's just it's a whole panoply of [TS]

  notes and the washing machine was making [TS]

  both rhythm and and Accord and it's all [TS]

  connected and just fill this filled the [TS]

  space with this pink cloud of this [TS]

  perfect harmonic and I was like boom [TS]

  there it is that was it [TS]

  I don't know what that what else there [TS]

  is I was there [TS]

  it's all been downhill sentence Mr 20 [TS]

  years ago you know [TS]

  ya got a lot of bookers yeah I am used [TS]

  to shake my daughter a lot to make sure [TS]

  she was alive when she was sleeping [TS]

  yeah yeah yeah I think everybody does it [TS]

  and I never should anybody not shook but [TS]

  didn't you ever like within the numerous [TS]

  times that in a sweet but kind of creepy [TS]

  way you student and like watch your kids [TS]

  sleep like especially when your kids an [TS]

  infant [TS]

  yeah i mean i don't know about you but I [TS]

  feel like I've been very implicated with [TS]

  this whole fear of an infant dying you [TS]

  know SIDS you know and so on and you're [TS]

  like oh it's going to make sure you roll [TS]

  it over onto its back and you know since [TS]

  my daughter was you know that age I seen [TS]

  lots of like funny parodies of this and [TS]

  stuff but you know I don't have you ever [TS]

  felt this but i but I would often feel [TS]

  like a the baby finally got to sleep [TS]

  yeah and that is really so the goal so [TS]

  much the time in the first like six [TS]

  months is like oh my god for everybody [TS]

  involved like people I don't even know [TS]

  what it's huge [TS]

  this baby get to sleep and the last [TS]

  thing in the world I want to do like [TS]

  really seriously like apart from [TS]

  stabbing it [TS]

  the last thing we want to do is wake [TS]

  this baby up you don't put don't wake [TS]

  the baby [TS]

  you never had that feeling that I would [TS]

  have that feeling where I was like [TS]

  maybe I'm just sleep deprived but she's [TS]

  not moving [TS]

  yeah well that whole business that whole [TS]

  business of like your baby's gonna die [TS]

  your baby's gonna die they tell you is [TS]

  so crazy making and and all the other [TS]

  than not that helpful [TS]

  it's not helpful all the old ladies like [TS]

  her or you know my mom and everybody was [TS]

  like we never worried about that and you [TS]

  were fine [TS]

  you slept on your back or your front or [TS]

  whatever it is they tell you about to do [TS]

  and your final week we used to drive [TS]

  around in a judge or three years he had [TS]

  a fucking fisher-price kid in your [TS]

  throat but we used to stick you in the [TS]

  glove box [TS]

  I'm not at co and go do jumps we don't [TS]

  Josh dark witch in the boot of the [TS]

  beetle and you were fine but but that I [TS]

  don't know what it is but that talk of [TS]

  like other gonna die and then you read [TS]

  their the accounts of people whose [TS]

  babies dude I and you think there is [TS]

  nothing worse there cuz there's nothing [TS]

  worse and yeah if my baby dies and i was [TS]

  sitting upstairs or I was in a different [TS]

  room going [TS]

  don't go check on the baby she's fine [TS]

  well if you were listening for the [TS]

  residence of the universe in a bathtub [TS]

  like not high but with a sub and you [TS]

  thought like got 30 seconds could have [TS]

  made the difference [TS]

  yeah right because kids into the thing [TS]

  here's the thing like you know can just [TS]

  say don't Google dry drowning dry [TS]

  drowning don't google it [TS]

  that sounds terrible exactly there is [TS]

  there is shit that happens to your kids [TS]

  that's so stupid and so like you can [TS]

  even detect it [TS]

  it's like at like body thetans like that [TS]

  like there's no way you can even know [TS]

  that this thing is going wrong so he [TS]

  notes it's part of your tech we'll talk [TS]

  about it later i was at powell's [TS]

  bookstore member general level is very [TS]

  low John my tone your tone level [TS]

  yeah but when i was at powell's long [TS]

  story not very long ago and I there's a [TS]

  on the top floor Powell's there's a rare [TS]

  book room [TS]

  which is kinda where I like Powell's [TS]

  overwhelms me but I can go into the rare [TS]

  book room and just don't they have like [TS]

  a nap with gps you know I know it's a [TS]

  totally overwhelmed at me it's wonderful [TS]

  to get lost in but it is completely [TS]

  overwhelming [TS]

  yeah I don't you know I don't go into [TS]

  the section like where's the landscaping [TS]

  section and they're like way to string [TS]

  it is this city block sir and I'm like a [TS]

  fuck you [TS]

  but i but the rare book room is it [TS]

  contained walled-off place where you can [TS]

  go and it's very quiet and everything in [TS]

  there is something interesting and cool [TS]

  and i went in there [TS]

  robert longo and there was a complete [TS]

  complete library of high-ranking [TS]

  Scientology books you know that it was [TS]

  like a it was like not a box set because [TS]

  there were too many books but it was [TS]

  like it came with its own cabinet that [TS]

  was painted white and looked like one of [TS]

  those egg chairs like it had a pedestal [TS]

  and magic doors and it was all the pages [TS]

  were all in gold [TS]

  the thing is she's not a false-flag I I [TS]

  can't believe that's allowed to stand [TS]

  that's the thing it was incredible i [TS]

  looked at the sense that his son John if [TS]

  you know the first or second thing about [TS]

  when you say the name [TS]

  I don't know anything but if you know [TS]

  the first or second thing about that [TS]

  group about that is unbelievable that a [TS]

  chair would exist [TS]

  well and so I'm looking at a time like [TS]

  this seems like a thing I should have [TS]

  challenged i don't know no I don't ever [TS]

  want to I don't want to ever read one of [TS]

  these but it seems like the Ark of the [TS]

  Covenant if you have it that makes the [TS]

  Necronomicon of a fucking candy cane [TS]

  don't even get near you know it's like [TS]

  the protocols of the Elders of Zion god [TS]

  that's the murdered man it's fucking [TS]

  chewing gum next to that shit so I [TS]

  looked at it I looked on the chaplain [TS]

  have taken you know twelve hundred [TS]

  dollars variable thickness because who [TS]

  else is gonna have one monkey's paw John [TS]

  if i guess i could buy it and just give [TS]

  it to John plans Berg and I would have [TS]

  done my that would have been my job for [TS]

  the world that would have justified my [TS]

  existence and then I was like why can't [TS]

  I can't do it but I so I walked out of [TS]

  there and I felt like I had been inside [TS]

  the inner intersect of the Mormon [TS]

  Tabernacle Choir whenever I had seemed [TS]

  it's that they had opened the come [TS]

  no I had seen the thing it seemed the [TS]

  books are you pretty sure they were real [TS]

  oh it was fully real this was like a do [TS]

  you think they would really have that [TS]

  our customers a John we've got all this [TS]

  out [TS]

  history looks fingers people to have it [TS]

  but how would they have known OTC like [TS]

  you get above like you get to a certain [TS]

  OT level [TS]

  yeah you get above I think OT 30 35 that [TS]

  is some serious fucking shit because you [TS]

  get to the you get the level of like I [TS]

  think the t3 or 85 is where LRH first [TS]

  talks about like how if you look at this [TS]

  and you're not ready [TS]

  it will literally kill you whoa that is [TS]

  it it is the Ark of the Covenant if it [TS]

  melts your face the the Ark of the [TS]

  Covenant fucking putt-putt golf man this [TS]

  is like 40 tiger woods with a very high [TS]

  tone level [TS]

  well so i don't know i did not know [TS]

  enough not to look at it I looked at it [TS]

  a lot but every time I opened it read [TS]

  the words it just seemed like i was [TS]

  reading the owners manual for a more [TS]

  like a Betamax it stop right there [TS]

  cutting all this but [TS]
