00:01:32   little bit of a he was a little bit of a [TS]

00:01:34   stinker if you know what I mean you [TS]

00:01:52   there was smoke coming from my fireworks [TS]

00:01:54   box [TS]

00:01:55   oh no it was like what the fuck and then [TS]

00:01:57   all of a sudden all my fireworks started [TS]

00:01:59   going off and we just SAT there [TS]

00:02:02   dumbstruck ah as an entire entire ammo [TS]

00:02:08   box full of like every kind of fireworks [TS]

00:02:10   and firecrackers bottle rockets that [TS]

00:02:12   kind of stuff shoot [TS]

00:02:13   off stuff exploding in the thing just it [TS]

00:02:16   was there must have been a moment there [TS]

00:02:19   where you thought the two words nobody [TS]

00:02:21   likes to think which is oh shit yeah [TS]

00:02:25   like despite yourself you go like oh [TS]

00:02:27   this is it this is it this is this is it [TS]

00:02:30   this is going to be you know the you [TS]

00:02:34   know this could be for the second maybe [TS]

00:02:36   the first paragraph of my obit the last [TS]

00:02:39   thing he saw was smoke coming out of an [TS]

00:02:41   ammo box full of fireworks [TS]

00:02:43   I was far enough away that I wasn't I [TS]

00:02:45   wasn't fearing for my life because you [TS]

00:02:47   know you want you wanna you want to [TS]

00:02:49   light the fuse and then get away [TS]

00:02:51   that's the only instructions you need [TS]

00:02:52   let the fuse getaway do not holding [TS]

00:02:54   hands whoo-hoo [TS]

00:02:56   so I was far enough away you know I knew [TS]

00:02:59   enough not to be lighting fireworks off [TS]

00:03:01   next to the box but I but my friend [TS]

00:03:04   pretty sure through well very sure he's [TS]

00:03:07   a little stinker these little stinker [TS]

00:03:09   oh and so a is there was Matt oldest the [TS]

00:03:13   Norwegian that gives you any indication [TS]

00:03:16   that's kind of a stinker name [TS]

00:03:17   yeah one of the lessons that Scott would [TS]

00:03:19   do no no Norwegians Carol Norwegians are [TS]

00:03:23   one of the last groups of people move in [TS]

00:03:25   the world that you can just be openly [TS]

00:03:26   racist about oh yeah he's gonna stand up [TS]

00:03:28   for them know what you want from your [TS]

00:03:29   way when you get to get you like a large [TS]

00:03:31   what about mads mikkelsen is here in [TS]

00:03:33   Norway no I wouldn't say well maybe I [TS]

00:03:36   mean that he's a Swedish have a lot of [TS]

00:03:39   maps up there surely got largest they [TS]

00:03:42   got Eric's got errands to get that to [TS]

00:03:44   use probably what I mean [TS]

00:03:46   uh-huh anyway so I lost all the [TS]

00:03:48   fireworks that day and then I chased [TS]

00:03:50   Matt around the reservoir threatening to [TS]

00:03:54   kill him but Matt was the number one guy [TS]

00:03:57   on our cross-country running team [TS]

00:03:59   oh man you brought you brought a knife [TS]

00:04:01   to fireworks fight yeah so I'm chasing [TS]

00:04:04   him but that but we both know I'm never [TS]

00:04:06   going to catch it was a symbolic chasing [TS]

00:04:08   a terrible night [TS]

00:04:10   uh well you know fireworks come and go [TS]

00:04:13   but anyway i just opened these these [TS]

00:04:15   crates and i found all these fireworks [TS]

00:04:19   and I was like it's [TS]

00:04:20   based on what I know about fireworks [TS]

00:04:22   these are now unstable they've been some [TS]

00:04:25   of these are very old you can't really [TS]

00:04:28   go out and light fuse and get away [TS]

00:04:30   because some of these might just just go [TS]

00:04:32   off in your face so now what do you do [TS]

00:04:34   with them [TS]

00:04:35   you can't throw him in a bonfire because [TS]

00:04:37   they'll go every direction right yeah i [TS]

00:04:40   mean you take it rid of Missy and I [TS]

00:04:42   don't want to be racist but you don't [TS]

00:04:45   you know me right [TS]

00:04:46   I get the feeling that even at their [TS]

00:04:49   best [TS]

00:04:50   mostly the kinds of fireworks you get in [TS]

00:04:53   a parking lot at the end of june are not [TS]

00:04:56   they're not like a military-grade [TS]

00:04:59   fireworks that you know what i am saying [TS]

00:05:02   that probably made somewhere where some [TS]

00:05:04   some child is putting a certain amount [TS]

00:05:06   of whatever gunpowder whatever into a [TS]

00:05:08   little tube and I bet it's not real [TS]

00:05:10   sciency even if they have robots to do [TS]

00:05:12   it I bet it's not super sayan see I bet [TS]

00:05:14   some of them i mean you think about [TS]

00:05:16   anything to get duds for you get with [TS]

00:05:18   the blow little too big so the kind of [TS]

00:05:20   unstable to begin with I'm guessing on [TS]

00:05:22   what you got humidity spiders you got [TS]

00:05:24   spiders they're spiders there's all [TS]

00:05:26   kinds of things that could have [TS]

00:05:28   infiltrated your ammo box the cause that [TS]

00:05:30   to be as you say unstable they [TS]

00:05:32   destabilize overtime yes he could be i [TS]

00:05:36   mean like you know the the [TS]

00:05:37   eight-year-old boy and me who says taken [TS]

00:05:40   to the police the police probably have a [TS]

00:05:41   room where they can munition those yeah [TS]

00:05:44   but you're missing the point which is [TS]

00:05:45   that I still want to explode them [TS]

00:05:47   yeah I want to explode them in a [TS]

00:05:50   controlled fashion but i do not want it [TS]

00:05:52   to be too controlled because it is a [TS]

00:05:55   firework I want there to be an element [TS]

00:05:56   of danger [TS]

00:05:57   I don't want my kid anywhere near it huh [TS]

00:06:00   but you know until I was until I was 17 [TS]

00:06:02   I still don't know let's see those later [TS]

00:06:05   than that until I was 22 and III I still [TS]

00:06:08   routinely had roman candle fights with [TS]

00:06:10   my friends we did not obey the at edict [TS]

00:06:14   to not hold in hand [TS]

00:06:16   mhm you lit fuse and did not get away we [TS]

00:06:19   did not get away our friend my friend [TS]

00:06:21   tried to get away but you didn't try to [TS]

00:06:23   get away you stood your ground [TS]

00:06:24   yeah like a gentleman needs to hear [TS]

00:06:26   crown and you point your enormous roman [TS]

00:06:28   candle your friend and you shot 12 [TS]

00:06:30   flaming balls at that [TS]

00:06:31   often 12 exploding flavor and this was a [TS]

00:06:36   this was a kind of modern-day jousting [TS]

00:06:39   that we did around new years eve at the [TS]

00:06:42   ski resort sure honors honors on the [TS]

00:06:44   line [TS]

00:06:45   that's right i mean you need to keep [TS]

00:06:46   your head down you don't want to get one [TS]

00:06:47   of these in your face but you kind of [TS]

00:06:49   state you stand just like a fencer sort [TS]

00:06:51   of position sideways so you're a smaller [TS]

00:06:54   target as you can be right and then but [TS]

00:06:57   that but that but the true warriors [TS]

00:06:59   advanced right you don't you don't just [TS]

00:07:03   stand you advance upon your that you got [TS]

00:07:05   a handle on versus birth situation yet [TS]

00:07:06   yet yet one guys being a gentleman by [TS]

00:07:08   understand the nature of the do we got [TS]

00:07:10   to make this look good then you got [TS]

00:07:11   somebody else's like I'm taking out and [TS]

00:07:12   I that's right I'm going for it who [TS]

00:07:15   but you know you be it's not just a [TS]

00:07:17   question of like I'm going to score some [TS]

00:07:19   points here the big points are well this [TS]

00:07:22   i mean the major points are a i'm going [TS]

00:07:25   to explode flaming ball on my friend [TS]

00:07:27   yeah but be i'm also going to i'm going [TS]

00:07:30   to use this opportunity to assert mine [TS]

00:07:32   my male dominance over all comers [TS]

00:07:35   there's a lot of any yeah it's [TS]

00:07:39   considered to be something we age out of [TS]

00:07:41   my college or so but there's a lot of [TS]

00:07:44   what's called one-upsmanship were like [TS]

00:07:47   you know you're gonna take a drink i'll [TS]

00:07:48   take another drink [TS]

00:07:49   you're gonna shoot a flaming ball [TS]

00:07:50   offshoot another shoe 12 flaming bottom [TS]

00:07:53   there's that sense of like escalation [TS]

00:07:55   when when men go head-to-head well and [TS]

00:07:58   it and often in these scenarios it was [TS]

00:08:00   not head-to-head but it was three right [TS]

00:08:04   like three guys in a round-robin just [TS]

00:08:06   your shooting flaming balls that one [TS]

00:08:08   friend and then you have to turn because [TS]

00:08:09   another flaming flaming friend isn't [TS]

00:08:12   because mad at a hypotenuse [TS]

00:08:14   uh-huh and then when it's a free-for-all [TS]

00:08:16   there's like five people in flaming [TS]

00:08:18   balls everywhere you know you're just [TS]

00:08:20   lucky to get out with you your head [TS]

00:08:22   already sounds like a crime scene so fun [TS]

00:08:25   though so fun to to be an age where you [TS]

00:08:29   now i have access to unlimited access to [TS]

00:08:32   fireworks as long as you keep having [TS]

00:08:34   money and and still believe that you can [TS]

00:08:39   go your life without being injured [TS]

00:08:42   he had a dangerous window i still think [TS]

00:08:44   that about ice coffee sometimes I still [TS]

00:08:46   think when I go and I get an iced coffee [TS]

00:11:30   true me I do this all the time no one [TS]

00:11:31   will stop me from buying a vintage RV [TS]

00:11:34   somebody should have stopped me I think [TS]

00:11:35   people probably tried [TS]

00:11:37   oh yeah yeah yeah they did but the new [TS]

00:11:40   the new lesson for me is if the bank [TS]

00:11:44   won't loan you the money just leave it [TS]

00:11:47   at that [TS]

00:11:48   if the bank won't loan you the money [TS]

00:11:50   just leave it at that if you have to go [TS]

00:11:52   around the bank interesting if you have [TS]

00:11:54   to hack the system yes then just leave [TS]

00:11:58   it leave it leave it there was a period [TS]

00:12:04   in my high school years where I tried to [TS]

00:12:06   make gunpowder out of saltpeter and and [TS]

00:12:11   why did you get saltpeter carbon or uh [TS]

00:12:15   what was a charcoal Peter charcoal one [TS]

00:12:19   other element Delta craft cocktail big [TS]

00:12:23   got a good got a big round ice cube big [TS]

00:12:26   know it's called the Big Bang it was it [TS]

00:12:30   was it was three things that you could [TS]

00:12:31   buy used to be able to buy these things [TS]

00:12:33   at well in some places in Anchorage it [TS]

00:12:37   seemed like you could just buy at the [TS]

00:12:39   drugstore [TS]

00:12:40   I bet there's a reason they keep [TS]

00:12:41   saltpeter in stock in whenever there is [TS]

00:12:44   certainly do what it says uh I mean why [TS]

00:12:47   would the US military sprinkle it in the [TS]

00:12:49   sea rations [TS]

00:12:50   is that true do you think that the [TS]

00:12:51   chemtrails thing actually that's a good [TS]

00:12:53   question because I mean it's one of [TS]

00:12:55   those things we hear that you grew up [TS]

00:12:56   and so as soon as she said the word [TS]

00:12:57   saltpeter I merely thought exactly one [TS]

00:12:59   thing right you keep your boner it's [TS]

00:13:02   stuff they put don't even know what [TS]

00:13:03   saltpeter is all i know is as long as [TS]

00:13:05   I'm almost as long as I've know what [TS]

00:13:06   Boehner is is that I [TS]

00:13:08   I've known that saw peter is a thing [TS]

00:13:10   that they put in your food so that you [TS]

00:13:12   won't get boners these RV this is a way [TS]

00:13:14   to control a little bit no horn dog [TS]

00:13:18   males I've heard the army does this I've [TS]

00:13:20   heard schools do this her prison [TS]

00:14:13   morning yeah you hit that is leave then [TS]

00:14:18   slower this world I you would use these [TS]

00:14:24   things in other another combinations and [TS]

00:15:17   I started mistyping breakfast as [TS]

00:15:20   breakfast is really easy to miss time [TS]

00:15:22   it's easy for your daughter to miss say [TS]

00:15:23   and now I think practice should totally [TS]

00:15:25   be a word i have stopped saying [TS]

00:15:27   breakfast almost entire practice is so [TS]

00:15:29   much unless you're gonna say second [TS]

00:15:45   substance used for medical treatment of [TS]

00:15:47   medicament medicament we were never able [TS]

00:15:51   to get because what it turns out is the [TS]

00:15:54   the print the mixture of sulfur charcoal [TS]

00:15:57   and saltpeter that makes gunpowder is a [TS]

00:15:59   very precise you know you like you wait [TS]

00:16:03   out mean it's a dish out yeah it's not [TS]

00:16:06   just start tossing stuff in there was [TS]

00:16:08   later one other than one-third one-third [TS]

00:16:09   oh sure like you're making a like Amish [TS]

00:16:12   cake or something [TS]

00:16:13   yeah it's not like Amish cake yeah so we [TS]

00:16:17   could combine these in different in [TS]

00:16:19   different measurements I think we're [TS]

00:16:20   just using a teaspoon and sometimes we [TS]

00:16:22   would get a thing that sparked and and [TS]

00:16:25   smoked in and made little like a like it [TS]

00:16:29   seemed like it which is called him and [TS]

00:16:32   then other times stuff would kind of you [TS]

00:16:34   know like I don't know we made a lot of [TS]

00:16:36   snap crackle and pop but we never got [TS]

00:16:39   anything to explode [TS]

00:16:41   oh but I vaguely understand an explosion [TS]

00:16:45   with let's take a sudden amount of the [TS]

00:16:47   right mixture and then the explosion is [TS]

00:16:49   when lots of oxygen happens very quickly [TS]

00:16:51   right you've got you get it's got its [TS]

00:16:53   got all burn at once just gotta burn so [TS]

00:16:55   fast that it's like it all it all burns [TS]

00:16:58   really quickly and then it hits the it [TS]

00:17:02   expands and then it hits the oxygen and [TS]

00:17:03   then POW how but at the time talking [TS]

00:17:07   about 1983-84 you could go to the fred [TS]

00:17:12   meyer and if if you don't live in a [TS]

00:17:15   place where there are fred meyers is [TS]

00:17:17   there a kind of what are they there are [TS]

00:21:25   at all and everyone its stellar knew it [TS]

00:21:27   and Frank cool knew it it was a it was a [TS]

00:21:30   bad turn of events and it's it's because [TS]

00:21:35   stellar was still a school in the [TS]

00:21:37   Anchorage School District and bring [TS]

00:21:39   Cooper was still on track to be a [TS]

00:21:41   principal he done is vice principal time [TS]

00:21:45   so it's just sort of a little bit like [TS]

00:21:47   being in the military were like if you [TS]

00:21:49   get a promotion [TS]

00:21:51   you're not going to ask questions about [TS]

00:21:54   it's your job [TS]

00:21:55   and it's a move up and you you wouldn't [TS]

00:21:57   wanna complain about something he'd been [TS]

00:21:59   waiting for the principal even win for [TS]

00:22:00   the tap [TS]

00:22:01   mhm and stellar had lost a principal [TS]

00:23:47   i don't when pterodactyls are born I [TS]

00:23:49   don't think they think of themselves as [TS]

00:23:50   record players [TS]

00:23:51   well this is what's great about it is [TS]

00:23:53   because the they're all the all the sort [TS]

00:23:56   of wild wild west-style old steampunk [TS]

00:24:00   basically where the flintstones was the [TS]

00:24:02   first team you know what that's really [TS]

00:24:03   true right because there is full of the [TS]

00:24:06   unnecessary embellishments [TS]

00:24:08   very very very basic understanding about [TS]

00:24:12   you know how things work [TS]

00:24:13   yeah and you're like oh there there's a [TS]

00:24:16   bear's cave men but they have a stove [TS]

00:24:18   and then you open the stove and add no [TS]

00:24:23   in their course my desk is made of brass [TS]

00:24:25   and has a porthole not an animal me are [TS]

00:24:28   wild wild west [TS]

00:24:32   alright that was steampunky right so i [TS]

00:24:36   was was that has to be the has to be [TS]

00:24:38   like the foundational steampunk thing [TS]

00:24:41   because he was he was devising all kinds [TS]

00:24:43   of brass apparat I uh-huh that that did [TS]

00:24:47   that did miracle things during the age [TS]

00:24:50   of steam all the age of steam you know [TS]

00:24:52   its just oh my goodness i think i think [TS]

00:24:58   about that sweet i'm always reluctant to [TS]

00:25:00   talk about death only because you know [TS]

00:25:03   that something you know something [TS]

00:25:04   they'll have the technology to come [TS]

00:25:05   through these things and pick out all [TS]

00:25:06   the parts you know interesting so we're [TS]

00:25:08   talking about now you're talking about [TS]

00:25:10   things I mean if you don't have access [TS]

00:25:11   to Captain Marvel there will be a way [TS]

00:25:13   eventually come to our shows and pick [TS]

00:25:14   out just certain parts so i know that [TS]

00:25:16   when we die [TS]

00:25:17   somebody's gonna put together a real [TS]

00:25:18   where the time talking about death [TS]

00:25:20   it's all the shit you say when you're [TS]

00:25:22   alive up being daedalus's like fuck you [TS]

00:25:24   guys right now turn this off turn this [TS]

00:25:28   about the ammo box full of fireworks [TS]

00:25:31   anything about as it as a death agent [TS]

00:27:25   Crocs and The Little Rock has gotten [TS]

00:27:29   wedged under a little table [TS]

00:27:54   to wear them anywhere now on an [TS]

00:27:55   escalator can wear mine escalator the [TS]

00:27:57   where modern escalator that's the first [TS]

00:28:11   little short pants with suspenders like [TS]

00:28:15   like a later hands and ricotta knows and [TS]

00:28:17   what we'd like to like a later hose and [TS]

00:28:19   accept that might be worn by someone in [TS]

00:28:20   Spanky and argue [TS]

00:28:22   ah let me think that would technically i [TS]

00:28:25   think because play and I don't [TS]

00:28:28   technically I don't cosplay anything [TS]

00:28:29   cool i think if you were to see me on [TS]

00:28:31   the street and scope out what I was [TS]

00:28:32   cause playing it would be something [TS]

00:28:34   pretty funny that's not like a marvel [TS]

00:28:35   comic do you cosplay what that I think [TS]

00:28:38   about all the time [TS]

00:28:39   yeah what is it what's your number-one [TS]

00:28:40   cause but well a lot of stuff that [TS]

00:28:42   listen cause playing is who I actually [TS]

00:28:43   a.m. [TS]

00:28:44   yeah I like cosplaying like middle-aged [TS]

00:28:46   dad I'm so middle-aged dad looking you [TS]

00:28:49   could cause play Merlin Mann pretty [TS]

00:28:51   easily [TS]

00:28:52   yeah I'm tried to stop people have [TS]

00:28:54   noticed and remarked in public if I wear [TS]

00:28:56   clothes with holes in them [TS]

00:28:58   this is something John Syracuse has seen [TS]

00:28:59   from from many many feet away so yeah [TS]

00:29:01   you're picking your pants holes and I [TS]

00:29:03   was like just a tiny little hole it's in [TS]

00:29:05   the edge of my iphone no way did you see [TS]

00:29:06   that from the audience oh yeah I've ever [TS]

00:29:09   you are talking about it so I tried to [TS]

00:29:11   stop wearing clothes with obvious holes [TS]

00:29:12   in them right well but the thing is that [TS]

00:29:15   you know the the front pocket hole [TS]

00:29:19   I think there's a pair of jeans there's [TS]

00:29:22   a big difference between a crotch hole [TS]

00:29:23   and Annie hole but there's a big big [TS]

00:29:26   leap from me whole to front pocket whole [TS]

00:29:30   front pocket hole should should be worn [TS]

00:29:32   with enormous pride I think the pockets [TS]

00:29:36   the pockets front and back but in these [TS]

00:29:39   days for me increasingly the front [TS]

00:29:40   pockets absolutely tell a story about [TS]

00:29:43   who i am and this has been true for [TS]

00:29:46   several years [TS]

00:29:47   I mean like I the things that I have [TS]

00:29:49   kept in the watch pocket right watch [TS]

00:29:51   pocket my Levi's have changed a lot over [TS]

00:29:52   the years [TS]

00:29:53   so what were then what are they um [TS]

00:29:56   coalition it's been entirely constant [TS]

00:29:58   for me it's always guitar always guitar [TS]

00:30:02   so in the early eighties to militarily [TS]

00:31:26   oh he went to a chunky cheesy you are [TS]

00:31:28   you wouldn't have a token in there [TS]

00:31:30   eighty-five percent of the time that I [TS]

00:31:31   was at a video game parlor I was there [TS]

00:31:33   to watch other people play sure it's too [TS]

00:31:36   costly [TS]

00:31:37   me too i mean like the thing is I you [TS]

00:31:38   know I don't remember having enough [TS]

00:31:40   allowance at that time but i rarely had [TS]

00:31:43   more than five to nine dollars an access [TS]

00:31:48   at a given time and I often had none [TS]

00:31:50   I mean this is back at a time like you [TS]

00:31:52   know you could go to like go to like a [TS]

00:31:54   subway ish thing and you could get [TS]

00:31:55   something for like under five dollars is [TS]

00:31:58   that all you could get something 402 [TS]

00:32:00   feel like I remember there being a [TS]

00:32:02   dollar product at subway and a [TS]

00:32:04   refillable cup that I think was 25 or 50 [TS]

00:32:07   Cent's to refill and appointed I every [TS]

00:32:09   is it you could get a little mini [TS]

00:32:11   reese's peanut butter cup for five cents [TS]

00:32:15   haha speak data and i guess i remember i [TS]

00:32:23   said just a moment just a moment [TS]

00:32:26   the coca-cola was five cents for almost [TS]

00:32:29   a hundred years i could not play video [TS]

00:32:33   games well enough to get my money's [TS]

00:32:35   worth I'd never in my whole life that I [TS]

00:32:37   play five dollars with the video games [TS]

00:32:38   if I played two dollars with a great [TS]

00:32:41   video games i felt like i had that was [TS]

00:32:43   incredibly decadent it was and i have to [TS]

00:32:46   tell you I mean it's one of the things [TS]

00:32:47   we're like I was a horrible there's a [TS]

00:32:49   few years was a very bad i was mean to [TS]

00:32:52   my mom I wasn't very nice and I compared [TS]

00:32:53   to some kids I wasn't awful i wasn't [TS]

00:32:55   dangerous but I wasn't very nice butt [TS]

00:32:57   she would just I could tell that it [TS]

00:32:58   broke her heart [TS]

00:32:59   like legitimately made her feel bad that [TS]

00:33:01   we didn't have a lot of money and it [TS]

00:33:03   really made her legitimately sad when I [TS]

00:33:05   spent the money i did have on video [TS]

00:33:07   games [TS]

00:33:08   yeah she worked well not even can see at [TS]

00:33:10   least can't even go that's a bad habit [TS]

00:33:12   but video games you're literally like to [TS]

00:33:15   somebody born in the thirties the idea [TS]

00:33:16   of taking the tiny bit of money you have [TS]

00:33:18   and going and putting it into a machine [TS]

00:33:20   for like you know 90 seconds of pleasure [TS]

00:33:22   it feels lucky again you don't need to [TS]

00:33:25   be Amish to look at that and go gross [TS]

00:33:27   yeah like you don't get that money back [TS]

00:33:29   somebody had to work to earn that and [TS]

00:33:31   you just put into a machine so you could [TS]

00:33:32   get killed by an alien but the thing is [TS]

00:33:34   if you were good at defender and you can [TS]

00:33:36   play defender for an hour i would not [TS]

00:33:39   one of the games Stargate in particular [TS]

00:33:40   the which is like defender to I would [TS]

00:33:44   watch I would just stay there i was on a [TS]

00:33:46   saturday i would just watch people who [TS]

00:33:47   are good at starting place target [TS]

00:33:49   because it was magic too well tempest [TS]

00:33:51   people who are good at tempest man that [TS]

00:33:52   is an art form I was pretty good at [TS]

00:33:55   Temple is a different kind of thing [TS]

00:33:57   that's you everyone really fast and [TS]

00:33:59   strategic to do that bus to know when [TS]

00:34:02   you're going to employ the smart smart [TS]

00:34:05   bomb or a smart bomb yeah that destroys [TS]

00:34:08   everything on the screen [TS]

00:34:09   you gotta wait we gotta wait for it yeah [TS]

00:34:11   but then those perfect moments when [TS]

00:34:13   you're like to hear your shooting aliens [TS]

00:34:14   all around and then the screen becomes [TS]

00:34:16   so clogged with enemies need to me [TS]

00:34:19   that's the mutants that there's no way [TS]

00:34:21   you're going to survive and then boom [TS]

00:34:22   smart bomb and everybody has destroyed [TS]

00:34:23   it's just like all I know this trick [TS]

00:34:26   with the Stargate where you would know [TS]

00:34:28   when to strategically use the Stargate [TS]

00:34:30   and there is of course I cannot be [TS]

00:34:32   straight but there's a trick with the [TS]

00:34:33   Stargate where if you carried a certain [TS]

00:34:35   number of the people in the Stargate you [TS]

00:34:37   got like an extra dude or something [TS]

00:34:39   that's the injury right there haha man [TS]

00:34:41   but yeah anyway so don't know I never [TS]

00:34:43   carried quarters are tokens in my in my [TS]

00:34:45   coin pocket i always carry or my watch [TS]

00:34:48   pocket was very severe in there so later [TS]

00:34:50   on that maybe didn't matter so one of [TS]

00:34:52   the great things about you about your [TS]

00:34:53   jeans if I may [TS]

00:34:55   yes was when you started routinely [TS]

00:34:57   carrying a space pen Ali what watching [TS]

00:35:00   this basement you're that create a space [TS]

00:35:02   pen exact shape of a space pen faded [TS]

00:35:06   into your gene Conley ambiguously the [TS]

00:35:09   outline of a space pen [TS]

00:35:10   yeah you can even see that the tapering [TS]

00:35:12   ends of the space pen [TS]

00:35:14   yeah it was just like wow that is a [TS]

00:35:16   statement as it's it's it's it's what [TS]

00:35:19   makes the whole gene wear pattern so [TS]

00:35:21   interesting because and this is as it's [TS]

00:35:24   also wear shoes like ever look at your [TS]

00:35:25   shoes and look for most people who I [TS]

00:35:29   guess our aren't going to the [TS]

00:35:30   chiropractor [TS]

00:35:31   I wish my shoes look at your shoes you [TS]

00:35:33   flip them over you grab five pairs of [TS]

00:35:35   your shoes of different ages and flip [TS]

00:35:36   them over and you're going to notice [TS]

00:35:37   very similar wear patterns but but [TS]

00:35:41   that's the same wear wear patterns on [TS]

00:35:42   each right or left foot across all the [TS]

00:35:44   shoes pretty much they issue is very [TS]

00:35:46   rarely wear evenly because because you [TS]

00:35:49   walk weird or you're shaped weird in the [TS]

00:35:51   and that's what the pocket thing becomes [TS]

00:35:52   so crazy if you put a space pen in your [TS]

00:35:54   pocket and you do it again he do it you [TS]

00:35:56   like it won't be long before that pen [TS]

00:35:58   always settles into exactly especially [TS]

00:36:00   receded a lot it's going to be settled [TS]

00:36:02   into exactly this one spot it's it's [TS]

00:36:04   like making the Grand Canyon i do you [TS]

00:36:08   ever I maybe outing myself here but do [TS]

00:36:11   you ever take your shoes and just put [TS]

00:53:02   33rd degree of Mason's yeah in the [TS]

00:53:06   description of the 33rd degree of Mason [TS]

00:53:09   Mason re masonic notice it says [TS]

00:53:14   specifically if you ask to be elevated [TS]

00:53:18   to the 33rd level you must be refused i [TS]

00:53:21   think that makes a hundred percent sense [TS]

00:53:24   i think they should even be an [TS]

00:53:26   understanding that if you ask they might [TS]

00:53:27   just throw your ass out [TS]

00:53:28   well this is the this is the amazing [TS]

00:53:30   question to spend as much time as it [TS]

00:53:32   would take to become a thirty-second [TS]

00:53:34   degree Mason we're talking about that's [TS]

00:53:36   that's 10 20 years that's a long time I [TS]

00:53:38   did a long time my grandpa was super [TS]

00:53:40   high up and he did it for a long time [TS]

00:53:42   yeah i think there are very few people [TS]

00:53:43   that make it to the 33rd degree to get [TS]

00:53:46   all the way to 32 and then make the make [TS]

00:53:50   the fucking classic error of asking for [TS]

00:53:53   it like I've been a 33rd degree Mason [TS]

00:53:55   for six years now when am I gonna get to [TS]

00:53:57   33 and then they're like it's right here [TS]

00:55:23   $10,000 oh yes [TS]

00:55:25   idea number two is invite everybody [TS]

00:55:28   who's ever offered to do this under the [TS]

00:55:30   same and also do and don't let them hear [TS]

00:55:32   each other [TS]

00:55:38   Babel basically you get this [TS]

00:55:42   that's a really good question didn't get [TS]

00:56:04   I really like that i really like that i [TS]

00:56:07   love the idea that the problem is we [TS]

00:56:09   have to have some hack version of skype [TS]

00:56:27   on his show about customer service [TS]

00:56:29   yeah where you talked about your United [TS]

00:56:30   experience i really like that that whole [TS]

00:56:32   idea is just like yeah this is just a [TS]

00:56:34   this is just the whole show is just [TS]

00:56:36   going to be about people knowledgeable [TS]

00:56:38   people some of whom used to work for [TS]

01:03:48   our burger bar [TS]

01:03:49   this is what podcasts are really for hmm [TS]

01:03:52   you know doing it's a burgeoning new [TS]

01:03:53   medium a lot of people are doing podcast [TS]

01:03:55   now i think it's i think it's really [TS]

01:03:56   gonna catch on i learned to I learned [TS]

01:03:59   yesterday that the McElroy brothers have [TS]

01:04:01   between them something like 64 podcast [TS]

01:04:04   I've never heard any of their shows [TS]

01:04:06   really I should go but people love them [TS]

01:04:10   and people who like things i do like [TS]

01:04:11   them which is a good indicator that i [TS]

01:04:12   would like them i read about them and [TS]

01:04:15   I've heard they're very funny and very [TS]

01:04:16   nice but I've never heard any of their [TS]

01:04:18   shows [TS]

01:04:19   I don't feel any particular way about [TS]

01:04:20   that and [TS]

01:04:21   it's saying that is a brag I'm not [TS]

01:04:22   saying that to be mean i'm just stating [TS]

01:04:24   a fact in the world same problem people [TS]

01:04:25   have with our show I think I don't even [TS]

01:04:26   know where to begin [TS]

01:04:27   yeah they got the brother show they've [TS]

01:04:29   got the the dungeons and dragons show [TS]

01:04:31   you have to get them the Medicine Show [TS]

01:04:33   so at the Old Crow Medicine old crow [TS]

01:04:36   medicine show you got that cindy [TS]

01:04:37   cashdollar you got you got the rustling [TS]

01:04:41   rustling sack [TS]

01:04:42   yeah i got around about the frisbees and [TS]

01:04:43   the hacky sack that's right you get this [TS]

01:04:45   guy over here we got no suit huh did you [TS]

01:04:47   overhear not me not me [TS]

01:04:48   what uh what was wearing sack what a [TS]

01:04:50   great name [TS]

01:04:51   what God Hogmanay said over the weekend [TS]

01:04:55   was his his experience of the the [TS]

01:04:59   McElroy brothers is that people like [TS]

01:05:01   them as particle part of their success [TS]

01:05:04   is that nice they're nice on their [TS]

01:05:06   programs well that's nice to hear that's [TS]

01:05:08   nice TLC I think my problem is that by [TS]

01:05:10   the time you get into something that's [TS]

01:05:11   popular enough to have different shows [TS]

01:05:14   and these medical McIlroy are on [TS]

01:05:16   different programs like now I really [TS]

01:05:18   feel screwed i really don't know where [TS]

01:05:19   to start [TS]

01:05:20   well and this but but what the what the [TS]

01:05:22   what the mind Jack was with the thought [TS]

01:05:24   technology was is this whole concept of [TS]

01:05:28   being nice as a way of attracting fans [TS]

01:05:32   oh that's the thing a person could do [TS]

01:05:33   well that's the thing I've never [TS]

01:05:35   employed [TS]

01:05:35   yeah and neither has gone Hardman and [TS]

01:05:38   and and so we're both like a nice nice [TS]

01:05:42   as a way of attracting it works the fact [TS]

01:05:44   that it works for somebody does not make [TS]

01:08:24   watching him perform your shows is [TS]

01:08:25   always so crazy I mean you get used to [TS]

01:08:27   it but it almost seemed like a stunt [TS]

01:08:30   like you could make a stunt act out of [TS]

01:08:32   Jonathan because he's like somebody on [TS]

01:08:34   the street like playing the symbols with [TS]

01:08:35   his knees while he's building a [TS]

01:08:36   birdhouse over here and yeah that's that [TS]

01:08:38   he would do with having a guitar and the [TS]

01:08:41   keyboard and I think some pedals but he [TS]

01:08:44   would he would play like two or three [TS]

01:08:46   different instruments within the same [TS]

01:08:48   song yeah he was he was invaluable in [TS]

01:08:50   that case the yeah the only the on the [TS]

01:08:53   only disadvantage was that a it's to be [TS]

01:08:57   able to sing is not i have increasingly [TS]

01:09:02   inclined to feel not a thing that you [TS]

01:09:05   can learn past a certain point right you [TS]

01:09:08   can learn it up to a point but not [TS]

01:09:09   beyond that point and what I what I [TS]

01:09:12   never should have done was put a [TS]

01:09:13   microphone in front of him and that's [TS]

01:09:15   what I mean that with all the love in [TS]

01:09:16   the world [TS]
