00:01:34   em I'm able to do ready but possums are [TS]

00:01:39   cats will accept possums and possums [TS]

00:02:20   kinds of pairings like this in nature [TS]

00:02:22   are there situations in the biome were [TS]

00:02:25   two seemingly incompatible creatures can [TS]

00:02:29   find some kind of common cause I feel [TS]

00:02:31   like a whale sharks and run [TS]

00:02:33   Laura mm right a Remora will just attach [TS]

00:02:36   itself to a welsher when you know when [TS]

00:02:45   know I was thinking of a this the sort [TS]

00:02:47   of leech like quality of certain kinds [TS]

00:02:50   of meals and primarily Remora but I [TS]

00:02:54   don't want to confuse people heal is [TS]

00:02:56   much better when I think it's clear [TS]

00:02:58   flammable and inflammable but that's [TS]

00:17:34   everything backwards it's like you're in [TS]

00:17:36   a canoe when you're in an eddy your your [TS]

00:17:39   becalmed yeah in Eddie but you're going [TS]

00:17:42   to enter the street you're going to [TS]

00:17:45   enter this the river the stream again [TS]

00:17:46   from the side you're going to go into [TS]

00:18:02   just just gradually join the flow of the [TS]

00:18:04   river you have to you have to go [TS]

00:18:05   straight in from the side home and if [TS]

00:18:10   you lean up river which every cell in [TS]

00:18:16   your body is telling you to do because [TS]

00:54:37   was like visibly fatter than the other [TS]

00:54:39   thing and I'm looking at him and I've [TS]

00:54:41   done this several times compared the two [TS]

00:54:43   index fingers and then i looked at the [TS]

00:54:45   middle finger Catholic wait a minute on [TS]

00:54:48   that on the broken finger hand my middle [TS]

00:54:51   finger is fatter that and then I was [TS]

00:54:53   like because all of the fingers on my [TS]

00:54:55   right hand are fatter than the fingers [TS]

00:54:58   on my left hand but then increasing the [TS]

00:55:00   horror [TS]

00:55:01   yeah the fingers on my left hand are [TS]

00:55:04   longer than the fingers on my right hand [TS]

00:55:06   oh no and then as looking at them longer [TS]

00:55:10   i realized that it is like i have and i [TS]

00:55:15   was like i had an arm replacement [TS]

00:55:16   surgery because my left hand does not [TS]

00:55:19   resemble my right hand in any way [TS]

00:55:21   oh that's a sturdy like a monkey hand [TS]

00:55:23   they are hard completely different i'll [TS]

00:55:25   be home be a I mean they're completely [TS]

00:55:28   different the the right hand which is my [TS]

00:55:30   dominant hand the fingers are much [TS]

00:55:33   larger but the hand itself is slightly [TS]

00:55:37   smaller and is like a it's like a [TS]

00:55:41   catcher's mitt and the left hand is like [TS]

00:55:44   a fucking spider I can spread the [TS]

00:55:46   fingers on the left-hand wider than i [TS]

00:55:49   can on the right-hand like they're [TS]

00:55:51   utterly different tools my god and this [TS]

00:55:53   has you know well as a guitar player i [TS]

00:55:57   have really struggled because my left [TS]

00:55:59   hand has almost no dexterity and I can't [TS]

00:56:03   train it to you know I've been working [TS]

00:56:06   on getting my left hand fingers to even [TS]

00:56:09   move reliably according to what my brain [TS]

00:56:12   asks them to do and they barely can you [TS]

00:56:15   know like if I'm drumming them on a [TS]

00:56:17   table like [TS]

00:56:21   that's as good as I can do okay on the [TS]

00:56:24   right-hand oh you like terry bozzio i'm [TS]

00:56:30   on the right hand i'm fucking 24 terry [TS]

00:56:32   bozzio is I have so many high hats on my [TS]

00:56:34   right hand I can't even keep it straight [TS]

00:56:36   you don't have to think about it it's [TS]

00:56:37   like it's like shooting Stewart [TS]

00:56:38   Copeland's out of a confetti cannon but [TS]

00:56:41   my left hand which i have to say now [TS]

00:56:44   looking at them side-by-side the left [TS]

00:56:46   hand is a much more elegant hand the [TS]

00:56:48   right hand is just like a meat clock [TS]

00:56:51   who do you think this big party because [TS]

00:56:54   it'll the length of the unusual lengths [TS]

00:56:55   of the fingers on the hand perhaps I [TS]

00:56:57   although i don't know if there are maybe [TS]

00:56:59   synaptically it's taking a little bit [TS]

00:57:00   longer [TS]

00:57:01   you're losing signal m-maybe I mean the [TS]

00:57:04   fingers are much more elegant their [TS]

00:57:05   inner and more tapered but looking at [TS]

00:57:08   the two hands i feel like the left hand [TS]

00:57:09   is aesthetically much better than the [TS]

00:57:11   right-hand a right-hand is all like bar [TS]

00:57:14   like I'm working I got work to do i do [TS]

00:57:16   the writing is just doesn't add up [TS]

00:57:18   I do all the stuff I dubai do all the [TS]

00:57:20   nose picking i do everything except the [TS]

00:57:22   but wiping yeah and the left hand is [TS]

00:57:26   like one lab but you have to do is ever [TS]

00:57:28   good bye [TS]

00:57:29   I would produce sometimes I play guitar [TS]

00:57:31   solos that are kind of Pam handed and [TS]

00:57:35   the right hands like I'm the ham and I [TS]

00:57:39   yeah I get to I'm the featured player in [TS]

00:57:43   one instance only which is guitaring [TS]

00:57:46   here just over there with the pic I'm [TS]

00:57:48   over here been in the note [TS]

00:57:49   yeah I'm the one that's going to bear [TS]

00:57:51   the pound pound it and the right hands [TS]

00:57:53   like God if I could be the note bender [TS]

00:57:55   hand would be we'd be out here what [TS]

00:57:58   would be at John Mayer level happy I'd [TS]

00:58:01   be an IV in bozeman montana making [TS]

00:58:04   people uncomfortable in a bar [TS]

00:58:06   oh you got you got a-you got John our on [TS]

00:58:08   the left-hand get a string can't refill [TS]

00:58:10   on the right-hand another way around the [TS]

00:58:12   other way around [TS]

00:58:13   yeah but so okay show's snouts only [TS]

00:58:16   focus okay so so I can't account for [TS]

00:58:18   this we mostly I cannot account for the [TS]

00:58:21   fact that I've lived my entire life [TS]

00:58:22   without notice that the two hands don't [TS]

00:58:25   even belong on the same and what am I [TS]

00:58:29   meant to do with that what am I meant to [TS]

00:58:30   do with that information and where does [TS]

00:58:32   it end [TS]

00:58:33   exactly it's like Johnson says its [TS]

00:58:36   evolutionary biology and you guys could [TS]

00:58:38   be an adaptation and who knows what [TS]

00:58:40   you're adapting to make me maybe you [TS]

00:58:41   felt [TS]

00:58:42   yeah i mean i think the universe is [TS]

00:58:43   trying to tell you something maybe the [TS]

00:58:45   left hand is so much more elegant [TS]

00:58:48   because it's going to be asked to [TS]

00:58:50   interface with some kind of UFO [TS]

00:58:51   technology when I'm promoted to [TS]

00:58:53   anchorman [TS]

00:58:54   oh right you put your left hand in the [TS]

00:58:56   machine shake it out about it turns out [TS]

00:58:59   that's the one that actually controls [TS]

00:59:01   the alien technology [TS]

00:59:03   I don't know thats ever like sent you [TS]

00:59:05   like Cinderella so I mean what-what else [TS]

00:59:08   is different My hemispherical is half of [TS]

00:59:11   my penis good and half of it is due to [TS]

00:59:12   delegate to live i felt that well I am [TS]

00:59:15   but it doesn't know the sides are [TS]

00:59:16   warring the warring sides or his [TS]

00:59:19   worthiness science you know my left knee [TS]

00:59:21   is the one that that I blew out and I [TS]

00:59:23   have had surgery on the right knee is [TS]

00:59:25   now supporting my entire body and almost [TS]

00:59:27   every activity this is this gets back to [TS]

00:59:29   an old issue of mine which is just that [TS]

00:59:30   the lack of symmetry where the [TS]

00:59:32   millenniums understand they understand [TS]

00:59:34   they're not always going to be [TS]

00:59:34   symmetrical [TS]

00:59:35   oh my god my feet are different to my [TS]

00:59:38   feels so different [TS]

00:59:39   the right big toe is much bigger and [TS]

00:59:42   shorter than the left big toe [TS]

00:59:44   what is this symbolize see that seems to [TS]

00:59:47   be hemispherical know some a good very [TS]

00:59:52   good friend of mine wrote me a text this [TS]

00:59:55   morning she lives in the the Carolinas [TS]

00:59:58   in the matter mountain [TS]

00:59:58   in the matter mountain [TS]

01:00:00   town in the Carolinas and she said I had [TS]

01:00:01   a dream last night where you appeared to [TS]

01:00:03   me and you were holding you had in your [TS]

01:00:06   front pocket a frog baby and the frog [TS]

01:00:10   baby when the frog baby was sort of half [TS]

01:00:13   human half frog and when you when the [TS]

01:00:16   baby was in human form [TS]

01:00:18   it was kind of a maladaptive baby but [TS]

01:00:21   then when it went into frog form it was [TS]

01:00:24   a very very elegant frog baby oh that's [TS]

01:00:28   profound and I was like what and so I [TS]

01:00:32   wrote her back and was like how [TS]

01:00:33   prophetic are your prophetic dreams do [TS]

01:00:35   they tend to be fairly prophetic or are [TS]

01:00:38   they do they skew more to the metaphoric [TS]

01:00:41   because obviously right frog baby in [TS]

01:00:43   your front pocket in the metaphor for [TS]

01:00:44   something [TS]

01:00:45   well and especially especially when it [TS]

01:00:47   takes on a different form that including [TS]

01:00:49   a qualitatively right and she said I had [TS]

01:00:51   she said I had in my front pocket a [TS]

01:00:54   habitat and it was a frog baby habitat [TS]

01:00:58   and when the baby was in the frog [TS]

01:01:00   habitat in my pocket right it was she [TS]

01:01:04   was happy and it was a female frog baby [TS]

01:01:06   ok she was happy and the frog baby [TS]

01:01:08   habitat in my pocket but when she was [TS]

01:01:10   out of the habitat she was just like the [TS]

01:01:14   awkward would make eye contact or legs [TS]

01:01:17   didn't work very well [TS]

01:01:18   yeah that'sthat's about life yeah it's [TS]

01:01:21   almost like you're a little bit like a [TS]

01:01:22   like a like a like a mommy kangaroo with [TS]

01:01:24   a Joey like you gotyou got a whole biome [TS]

01:01:27   in your pocket and that's where the [TS]

01:01:29   front babies happy the girlfriend babies [TS]

01:01:30   happy when she comes out he's gonna deal [TS]

01:01:31   she's like a pubescent baby has to come [TS]

01:01:34   out like deal with the world and once [TS]

01:01:36   you're back in Mom's pouch [TS]

01:01:37   Oh cheap but she knew so but it wasn't [TS]

01:01:40   like she was seen she just one of those [TS]

01:01:42   dreams really like and I knew that you [TS]

01:01:43   had a habitat in your pocket for the [TS]

01:01:45   frog baby [TS]

01:01:47   I have to guess right and she just that [TS]

01:01:49   it's not like she drove into the habitat [TS]

01:01:52   and was exploring and that's for the [TS]

01:01:53   Frog it's not for her [TS]

01:01:54   that's right it's the frogs have at Li I [TS]

01:01:57   like this a lot and she shows she texted [TS]

01:01:59   to share this with you yeah right all [TS]

01:02:01   the way from the Carolinas where it's [TS]

01:02:03   like I don't know how she must have had [TS]

01:02:04   somebody run the message downhill with [TS]

01:02:06   an envelope and then Telegraph it [TS]

01:02:08   yeah but now i'm looking at my hands and [TS]

01:02:12   I'm thinking frog baby is that me was [TS]

01:02:15   either frog baby and she didn't specify [TS]

01:02:18   which pocket it was I mean I have to [TS]

01:02:20   assume front pocket so the left leg but [TS]

01:02:22   probably here here is your Stringfellow [TS]

01:02:25   hand is the one to pull the girlfriend [TS]

01:02:26   baby out [TS]

01:02:27   oh sure the root of the string that well [TS]

01:02:29   know what am I your elegant your elegant [TS]

01:02:31   left hand is what you use to remove the [TS]

01:02:32   fuck frog baby from the habitat [TS]

01:02:34   no I think you reach across have [TS]

01:02:37   something in your left pocket you reach [TS]

01:02:39   across with your right hand like a [TS]

01:02:40   cowboy include yeah it would be my John [TS]

01:02:42   our hand reaching for frog baby [TS]

01:02:44   oh interesting and yet your foot is [TS]

01:02:46   bigger on one side then your hand on the [TS]

01:02:48   other [TS]

01:02:49   no they're the same a regular size of [TS]

01:02:52   consistency the the toe size is [TS]

01:02:54   concomitant is a lengthy tail right [TS]

01:02:56   Sammy minutes like a wide like a broad [TS]

01:02:58   toe [TS]

01:02:58   I'm saying I'm saying my right hand and [TS]

01:03:01   my left or my right hand and my right [TS]

01:03:03   foot ok suffer from the same a condition [TS]

01:03:07   which is they are who they are bulkier [TS]

01:03:10   yeah and a and like more working class [TS]

01:03:16   yeah and the left hand and the left foot [TS]

01:03:18   are more let's say elegant and refined [TS]

01:03:22   more white russian ok they were that way [TS]

01:03:25   after the Tsar was deposed they escaped [TS]

01:03:27   to Paris right but now are somewhat [TS]

01:03:31   useless because of that light they have [TS]

01:03:34   been blood right and they keep like they [TS]

01:03:35   keep hanging around like the [TS]

01:03:38   aristocratic class right to get [TS]

01:03:40   everything took out the connections to [TS]

01:03:42   some extent that's right and they're [TS]

01:03:43   invited there because they're an [TS]

01:03:45   Archduke of some kind right but they [TS]

01:03:47   don't have any money [TS]

01:03:48   and so that's that that yes yes I [TS]

01:03:51   understand you get the ham-fisted right [TS]

01:03:53   side get the elegant left side the [TS]

01:03:55   ham-fisted right side that basically [TS]

01:03:57   owns some textile factories and is rich [TS]

01:04:01   richer you know rich not aristocratic [TS]

01:04:05   rich [TS]

01:04:05   uh-huh well but maybe even richer your [TS]

01:04:17   right from his brother against brother [TS]

01:04:20   it its it's essentially like a from [TS]

01:04:24   those who have the most to those who [TS]

01:04:26   have the least right [TS]

01:04:28   yes the means of production right are [TS]

01:04:30   armed like being exploited by the left [TS]

01:04:34   hand and they're keeping the workers [TS]

01:04:40   have no idea what good my left hand is I [TS]

01:04:42   know what good my left foot is because [TS]

01:04:44   it is an alternate to the right foot [TS]

01:04:46   which one's the bad knee left [TS]

01:05:15   pistol in the left hand and shoot wildly [TS]

01:05:18   and indiscriminately with it or do you [TS]

01:05:21   reserve the left pistol until the right [TS]

01:05:24   pistol is out of ammunition and then [TS]

01:05:26   switch it over to the right-hand which [TS]

01:05:28   will let me respond with the nursery [TS]

01:08:13   eye and I'll move the book over to the [TS]

01:08:15   right and that's where that's how I read [TS]

01:08:16   so my gosh [TS]

01:08:17   and I feel like all the information out [TS]

01:08:19   of the book is going into the left [TS]

01:08:21   hemisphere of my brain only and the [TS]

01:08:23   right hemisphere is being reserved [TS]

01:08:24   Oh COK this changes everything and then [TS]

01:08:27   the hemispheres also they control the [TS]

01:08:29   opposite side [TS]

01:08:30   yes right so your your your your feet [TS]

01:08:34   left hand is controlled by the right [TS]

01:08:36   side of your brain that's the creative [TS]

01:08:37   mm and then on your other hemisphere you [TS]

01:08:40   got your you get your hand fisting [TS]

01:08:47   eye I which I guess is the dominant eye [TS]

01:08:50   and uh and all that information is going [TS]

01:08:53   to the left side of the brain and being [TS]

01:08:55   analyzed which like the useless for the [TS]

01:08:58   most part that's your rationale less [TS]

01:08:59   creative side math science and then the [TS]

01:09:01   right-hand side of my brain is just [TS]

01:09:04   sitting around some Archduke's palace [TS]

01:09:40   they'd cut your caviar off after a [TS]

01:09:42   certain point but if you're like I'm [TS]

01:09:44   institution [TS]

01:11:06   thinks he's the character in The [TS]

01:11:15   puzo in a restaurant somewhere i have to [TS]

01:11:18   assume in in the Staten Island or [TS]

01:11:24   right yeah they're in a restaurant the [TS]

01:11:25   Mario Puzo walks into a spaghetti [TS]

01:11:27   restaurant in trenton new jersey Frank [TS]

01:11:29   Sinatra comes over and starts screaming [TS]

01:11:31   at him and this was the era when Frank [TS]

01:11:34   Sinatra could scream at a guy in a [TS]

01:11:35   restaurant and the restaurant owner be [TS]

01:11:37   like it's a fucking honor [TS]

01:11:39   it's an honor day-to-day millions last [TS]

01:11:41   water-saving hardest pipes screaming at [TS]

01:11:43   a guy screaming Mario Puzo because the [TS]

01:11:45   you know the mob made made them take the [TS]

01:11:49   words cosa nostra and mafia out of that [TS]

01:11:51   movie that's right and so he screaming [TS]

01:11:54   know Johnny Fontane fuck you i never did [TS]

01:11:56   any of that stuff and Puzo is probably [TS]

01:12:00   both saying like you kind of proving the [TS]

01:12:01   point right here with your weird mafia [TS]

01:12:04   tantrum who but also who says over and [TS]

01:12:07   over that's not you're not Johnny [TS]

01:12:09   Fontane who knew I will it's not you [TS]

01:12:12   you suree communication reads like that [TS]

01:12:14   done it a little bit yeah but but it [TS]

01:12:17   wasn't you I was I was saying that it [TS]

01:12:19   was a you know it was who Guy Fieri here [TS]

01:12:23   sure some other rajan Jackie diamond [TS]

01:12:27   door Jackie Diamondback the knife yeah [TS]

01:12:29   it i think it's a romana clay as they [TS]

01:12:32   say I'm pretty sure that's that supposed [TS]

01:12:33   to be frank sinatra and i think is [TS]

01:12:35   specifically from here to eternity was [TS]

01:12:37   the movie [TS]

01:12:37   that where they have intercourse in the [TS]

01:12:39   tides know women i thought it was well [TS]

01:12:42   that wasn't Frank Sinatra know that was [TS]

01:12:43   a Montgomery Clift know i think it was a [TS]

01:12:46   it was a double and castor link and as [TS]

01:12:50   debit card are here just outside was [TS]

01:12:53   beautiful she was young she was innocent [TS]

01:12:55   she was the greatest piece of ass I read [TS]

01:12:57   and I had them all over the world [TS]

01:12:58   see I thought it was the man with the [TS]

01:13:00   golden hand oh man with the Golden Arm [TS]

01:13:02   that's why we're now I think that's when [TS]

01:13:05   I Frank Sinatra was chasing the dragon [TS]

01:13:06   he was chasing the dragon and I thought [TS]

01:13:08   that was the movie that made you know [TS]

01:13:10   that was his like his serious week and [TS]

01:13:12   they needed this concept albums he did [TS]

01:13:14   like guy in his 16th he retired for a [TS]

01:13:16   while and then he came back and did you [TS]

01:13:20   know somewhere and all that kind of [TS]

01:13:21   stuff yeah because he wasn't a [TS]

01:13:23   teenybopper anymore now is a serious [TS]

01:13:25   artist that's right that's right and he [TS]

01:13:26   got a better pc support in the hat as [TS]

01:13:28   much but I'm starting to I'm starting to [TS]

01:13:30   think if he was two feet tall through [TS]

01:13:33   all that [TS]

01:13:34   yeah right think about think about the [TS]

01:13:36   think about the meat hand on that guy [TS]

01:13:38   that's a good point i'm from now on when [TS]

01:13:41   I think about that scene of him yelling [TS]

01:13:42   at Mario Puzo yeah i'm going to imagine [TS]

01:13:45   being two foot tall and the entire thing [TS]

01:13:46   is gonna it's that it completely [TS]

01:13:49   symbolically another we're talking about [TS]

01:13:52   maybe like definitely smaller than Kenny [TS]

01:13:55   Baker probably smaller than the mini-me [TS]

01:13:57   guy i think it means foreign Troyer [TS]

01:13:59   we're talking about a very small Frank [TS]

01:14:00   Sinatra Anahata suit and you said he was [TS]

01:14:03   to scale [TS]

01:14:04   yeah but see that I'm saying is [TS]

01:14:05   proportional I'm saying I wasn't he was [TS]

01:14:08   proportional he was like he was like if [TS]

01:14:09   somebody was like you know you get like [TS]

01:14:11   three quarter sized cello or something [TS]

01:14:13   in this case it was basically like a [TS]

01:14:15   one-third scale model of Frank Sinatra [TS]

01:14:17   doing like going you're not a little [TS]

01:14:20   person [TS]

01:21:04   out and i put it but I'd haven't done [TS]

01:21:06   that yet with this the song only exists [TS]

01:21:08   on my phone and so I'll play a verse and [TS]

01:21:10   then i have to stop and scroll and play [TS]

01:21:14   the next verse and then stop and scroll [TS]

01:21:15   and i have yet to really get a vibe on [TS]

01:21:19   the tune I [TS]

01:21:21   never played it all the way through Wow [TS]

01:21:23   and I've been working on this song for I [TS]

01:21:25   don't know a couple of weeks now and [TS]

01:21:28   I've never actually played the song all [TS]

01:21:29   the way through and i keep saying to [TS]

01:21:31   myself what I'm not what I'm not gonna [TS]

01:21:32   don't have a guitar i'm walking around [TS]

01:21:34   in the day and I go what the fuck [TS]

01:21:35   happened i finish that song oh I need to [TS]

01:21:38   write those lyrics out on a pan but then [TS]

01:21:40   I just stop i keep forgetting to do it [TS]

01:21:42   and I don't know why what it's so it [TS]

01:21:46   seems so simple get a pad we have a [TS]

01:21:49   chance you could be your brain telling [TS]

01:21:51   you something maybe you know it sounds [TS]

01:21:53   like last time we talked about this it's [TS]

01:21:54   so I i feel like i was hearing you say [TS]

01:21:55   you were a little ambivalent because [TS]

01:21:58   first of all I could be taken to be a [TS]

01:22:00   jingoistic anthem but but also that [TS]

01:22:02   maybe you were starting to kind of like [TS]

01:22:03   it as a song I sing that you like [TS]

01:22:07   singing the histrionics right [TS]

01:22:09   herpaderp little bit you know what I you [TS]

01:22:11   know what I mean you know what I do i do [TS]

01:22:14   too well I i feel a little bit like over [TS]

01:22:19   the years I've done several [TS]

01:22:21   rock-and-roll teams and particularly [TS]

01:22:25   rock and roll covers right i have almost [TS]

01:22:27   an entire album of covers waiting in the [TS]

01:22:30   wings [TS]

01:22:32   Maya you know my rock-and-roll they [TS]

01:22:35   might be giants cover i did a rock and [TS]

01:22:38   roll cover of some like and tuned by [TS]

01:22:45   niko I've done I've done quite a few [TS]

01:22:48   rock and roll covers and every time I [TS]

01:22:51   have presented them to my record label [TS]

01:22:52   and admittedly a record label that is [TS]

01:22:54   generally opposed to rock and roll em [TS]

01:22:57   but they have responded with the sort of [TS]

01:23:00   a min foo and I'm a little bit worried [TS]

01:23:05   that all these rock'n'roll tunes that I [TS]

01:23:08   think are great like the rock and roll [TS]

01:23:10   version of ultimatum on my award-winning [TS]

01:23:13   album my phony award-winning album [TS]

01:23:16   before putting the day so that's that's [TS]

01:23:18   that's a good version of that well but I [TS]

01:23:19   get a lot of email i get a lot of [TS]

01:23:21   letters from people saying why did you [TS]

01:23:24   remake that song it was fine already as [TS]

01:23:27   it was and I was like I'm you made it [TS]

01:23:29   because I wrote and I can do what I want [TS]

01:23:30   and people don't accept that [TS]

01:23:32   so I'm beginning to feel like maybe I [TS]

01:23:35   have like a maybe I have a little bit of [TS]

01:23:37   a deficit in knowing and understanding [TS]

01:23:39   what people want and whether or not they [TS]

01:23:43   want rock music for me [TS]

01:23:46   let's listen to the hands the hands will [TS]

01:23:49   tell you but the meat hand and the and [TS]

01:23:53   the Russian hand are telling me [TS]

01:23:54   different things that's that's the [TS]

01:23:56   nature of the hands they're there [TS]

01:23:58   they're both trying to tell you [TS]

01:24:00   something and you as the master of the [TS]

01:24:02   hemispheres have to figure out how to [TS]

01:24:04   square that circle [TS]

01:24:06   listen to the pan listen to the pan who [TS]

01:24:09   can touch the pan haha what is the pan [TS]

01:24:13   telling you now [TS]

01:24:15   fine only English people can fly [TS]
