ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Apologies in advance for the audio quality on this one! Greg, Ashley, and Nathanael give you some recommendations for things worth your time! Ashley flaunts her lasedisc! Greg uses the heart of the cards! Nathanael gripes about anime flashbacks!

The genesis a bit, get fit. It's alive, hearts beating, pushing forward. Three little words have sparked so many emotions that are grange, from Outrai season to Abi Ulis function. It's hold to travel, lay one believe out driddles, the doers from old English. Hold onto your own to middlings. A thousand right. All the meaning. Would they've been of the dog or some other kindnized man. You want through, middling you or Marvel, program meaning Coustry Hill. Every great man, very great woman. Pa Alu, boys, worry, moral you're welcome to back here. So you'll be in Austrian nobleman, commissioning the symphony and see which defies all earthly descriptions. You'll be missioning a symphony and see with money you squeeze from the okay, this is where the fun of it is. Hello and welcome to dearly debated, the show where you're entitled to your opinion, even if it's wrong. You're hopefully hearing this in the month of May, because it means it means that I got off my ass and edited the this podcasting dish to the freems. I have to go out before this, so I do intend to jump on that and actually do it. But yeah, we've been on highs, mostly because of scheduling issues, but hopefully we'll be a little bit more regular in the summer. Also, our moderator, Chason Daniel, has had like nine million dogs, see, has had to deal with. Yes, he's just been MIA given birthday nine million and, as you might expect, it was a little traumatic. So he's needed time to it. A lot of dogs, a lot of it is so many dogs, not to mention working full time and going to the full time sending school. So he's got a lot on his plate. So he's not joining us today, but hopefully we have are we really have a very special episode planned. We can't do it until we can get all of us together for extend a period of time. In will hopefully, ideally, you will be two weeks time when I don't have class, like to in to Fridays from now that we record I don't have class. That would be ideal. But given our track record, sometime next year. He's special episode. But anyways, so, Ashley, all we needed to do. Yeah, let's introduce ourselves. Who Are we? Who Am I? I am nathaniel too, strings Levinson. I am Ashley, live long and prosper, Thomas, and I am Greg. Until next time, friends, that's hard felt. It's hard ful rather. So actually, why don't you tell us what we're doing this podcast? Is this kind of your ran child? Okay, all right, so something that I really enjoy when I listen to podcasts. I really like to hear what other people are into. So we've done some geeking out episodes, but this can be like a little daunting or whatever. So I came up with the the ideas like, Hey, guys, how about this? Why don't we pitch to our listeners? Here's one thing I really like being a book, a TV show, a movie, a comic or podcast or whatever. And so we are going to give you maybe three to five recos each. So we're going to call this the first ever dearly debated recco cast. Right, and I kind of cheated on the movie of the show because I picked one live action one anime. I think that is acceptable. Actually have two things for all of these. Noe. I. You know again, the the goal is to get as specific as possible and just try to pick stuff that was a little more obscure, stuff that people might not have heard Oh right. So I'm like you. You know there's something that when you ever, I've never heard anyone talking about right. So maybe check it out. What you know to to some extent, to some extent. Why don't I start? I'm a start off with the game fire and I'm going to pull greg into this. Greg, I haven't playing a lot of Yugi. Oh, that's literally what I wrote down. Ye, I'm gonna hold on that. I'm going to pause on that. Okay, so, grace W we talk about Ugio? No, I mean you can say there for both of you to talk about Ugio, because you will possibly Oh, yeah, come at it from different perfective to so true. But I'll look all right, leave that one and then, yeah, I'll have been so all of you, because I have another game. Okay, this is a game, relatively new board game. It was kick started and it's been in scutting a bunch of expansions. But root route, it's just it's a great board game. It's very similar to to like settlers of Katana, where you're trying to accrue victory points and...

...but and in you know, you deal with resources and everyone. What was really interesting about the game is it's completely asymmetrical. So every character goes through, you have the three same phases of the game. There's like you on your turn, you go through three phases, but every single character you can pick, like everything, every single clan or whatever you can you can play as, plays differently and operates by different rules. Like everyone's trying to bring the same way by accruing victory points, but everyone a cruise victory points in a different way. So, for instance, you can be the cat clan, who start with control basically the entire woodland and their goal is to build up and maintain dominance. Then you have the birds, who are the enemies of the cats, and they start in one corner and they have to expand and the they it's really easy at first, but every time you take your turn you have to basically create a marching order where you have to do these things and you add more and more things to eventually you can't do it and then you like everything collapses and you lose points, and so you have to like figure out the balance between pushing really hard and not going into into collapse, because that's damaging to you, and trying to rebuild. And then there's the the raccoon who plays completely differently from everything else where. It's like he's it's just him by himself, no army, and he just kind of slips in and out of words and does quests and like plays music for people and does his own thing. It's a really great game to come up with a bunch of expansions and and then keep coming out with new characters, or new clans, I should say, new, new, new factions. That's what they're called, the cult factions. They come out, keep coming out with new factions that all play different things. They can out with like the Sea Otters, who they do some trading things and they're kind of doing their own thing, and then the cultists, who operate by like turning other people's pieces on to their side, and it's really fun. And what's great about it is once you've learned how to play as one faction and try to play another faction, if the game completely changes is and what other factions are you playing with changes how you play the game. So it's it's got tons and tons of replayability. The Games are relatively short. It's pretty easy because you only have to worry about what your faction does. To some extent you don't have to learn all the other factions before you can start playing the game. You just pick one and there's varying difficulty of how to play them. You can just pick one and go. They also have a mobile game, mobile version, that you get us like five bucks, five or ten bucks, so you can you can do it on mobile as well if you want to. But it's just really it's just a really fun, very replayable game. That's one of the best. It's one of the best board games played in the last five years. It's just super well designed, absolutely adorable art like the arts, fantastic, super easy to figure you're out. It's it's that perfect game where it's easy to learn and difficult to master. So's that is a sweet space where you can sit down and start playing it and understand what you're doing, but you can play it forever and ever and just get better and better at different factions and then when you get more with that faction, play a different one and that's completely different experience. So that's my recommendation. Is Root, great game, great game, route. Got It high and rout. You are route, I guess indeed. All right, so you want to talk about this one. Cats out of the bed. It's already been spoiled. Maybe that's all, depending on how Nathaniel addit this. This is already been spoiled, or maybe not. Yeah, as far as games go, I've been playing me and a thing of both have been revisiting our love, our Childhood Love, of Yu Gi oh and I don't know if you've been doing this, but I've been playing on dueling book. So just just to keep it, just to kind of plug this game, Uki Oh. So you go as an old card game and everybody knows it's probably nose thousand and three, I think, is when it first people probably know to that extent earlier than that, as I was, I don't actually high school in two thousand and three. So, so the the anime was early s and I think the first card game set came out in early two thousand. Yeah, yeah, I say because I played in high school. Listen, two thousand, two thousand and two. So yeah, so you probably know the extent that this is a card game. The way that the card game functions is that each person holds a certain amount of life points in the cards you play are designed to try to get to the other person's life points. And destroy them and bring them down to zero. If you bring them down to zero, the game is over. There tons at this point. I mean I don't know how many cards. I mean how many, many different cards. It's over tenzero. Yeah, indivisual cards. So basically the whole like part of the strategy. Mean, the main source of the strategy is constructing the deck you want. It's not just you're going to buy a bunch of cards and just pile them all up like all the cards you own. You get a ton of cards and from those cards you try to construct a deck that'll work with itself to try to defeat their life points. So the overall like, when you stand back and look at that, at least for somebody like me who's very strategic and tactical, that's so it's so interesting. I'm like, Oh, this is awesome, because it makes me feel like I could find something unique that nobody else has found. None now in days like with the Internet and things like that like that's no, it's kind of and I've talked to you about this little bit. It's defeated games in a little bit, in a few ways, to where I think it makes it a little less interesting to look at that, at least for something like me, because I look at it and I'm like, Oh man, I have that thought. I could be really unique in this. And in reality you go...

...online and they're like there are top three decks you can play with. All the other ones are invalid. It's like you play with anything other than these three decks that we've created in a with a supercomputer, that you're just going to lose instantly, like Oh, but that's no fun. And so everybody uses those decks, like Oh, you're not using one of these decks that specializes these kind of cards, and it's like, well, the what's the point of all the other thousand cards? And that's what I've been enjoying about it is, you know, because you can go and buy singles of every thing and construct exactly the deck right one, or you could do what I do. We just get a bunch of random ass cards and they say, okay, what can I make with this? I have this card, this card, never that's to me. That's where the fun of you, Gilli, is. Ill other people who love competitive Ugo and and I was telling great about this. There's actually there's a guy named Jeff Leonard and his son plays competitive you go. So he was like, well, I'll play competitive U Geo and he plays this like basically what we were to considering no fund deck, where the whole goal is to just prevent the enemy from from getting to play any cards and making a rage with the game. He's one. He played a tournament recently and he went to love to know. No, it's like something's like fifty one year old. Some dudes, Dad and a people love me because they're like it's this, this is dad. He's just like, Hey, my son loves you. You let maybe you'll be a hey, this is pretty fun and I'm being pretty good. It's about it. Yeah, it supples with so adorable you see, in so like I think I when I think about you and I get excited about it. It's the look back to how did we interact with this game as a child? As a child, yeah, you couldn't just go out and buy it. Will least. I wasn't the kind of kid who could just buy any single he wanted. I was, you know, I bought packs of cards until I had enough to make a deck and then keep buying packs of cards, then taking out the really bad ones from your deck and replacing with the better cards you get. You still you created this deck and all of your friends are kind of in the same situations, when each of your decks are just completely unique. You've each got cards that are like, oh, man, that's his best card, where nowadays it's just, well, everybody has that card. It's just whether you want to put it in your deck or not right, because there's the perfect way to Construc arctor decks. And so I've kind of been interacting lately. I guess my current love of Yugioh has been interacting on two fronts. One with you to where we kind of reenacted this childhood version. Well, I've got a've literally got a shoe by it is a literal shoe box with with like eight decks that I've made as a kid that I brought when Nathaniel's real broke out his and we started playing with these old school decks we used to have. It. It's just so much fun. And then I've also been trying my hand. I don't know why I do this at so the dueling book is basically it's a website that houses every single Ugio card on the market and you can construct whatever deck you want and then play against other people online and they can do the same exact thing. So it's not a matter of what cards you have. EVERYD is access to every card in the game. It's just a matter of how, like if you had acts as every card in the game, what kind of deck would you make and would it be competitive? So most of the time I'm just completely raging. I'M NOT gonna lie to you, like I have to pray about not being a troll on there, because people will just the game is in my defense, like the game has changed a lot. So the game used to be very basic, cut and dry, like you had two different kinds of cards. You had cards that were like magic and trap cards and kind of like specialty. You flip them over and they do one thing and then they leave, and then you had your character cards, your monster cards, and like those would stay on the field and fight. Those are the that's pretty much it, and it was a very basic role. You could put one monster down per turn. Now there are like seventeen different categories of monster and some of the monsters you play two of them at the same time and then you put five ones in between them, and I'm like what are you doing this? Oh, this is cold. This is not just like a normal summon like you used to back in the day. When you get made sense. This is called a pendulum summon. I'm like, I'm literally, and so I'm really I'm like, I'm sitting there and I've seen this plenty of to at by this point. I've played enough against enough twelve year olds online to know, but I always play the stupid card. I'm always like, what do you mean? You only have one normal sum typing this out? Of course you only have one normal Simon. And they're like this is a pendulum summon, dude, and I'm like, oh, that doesn't make any sense. They're like they have to sit there and explain it. I'm just hope. I'm like please quit and because I know you're gonna beat me. You just semn like twelve cards and I know I'm playing my one monster and defense mode and just waiting to get obliterated literally gray. But it is. It's fun. I literally, like I played online for the few times that my weird schemy deck happens to win, like they're there are a random few times. You can tell, and you can totally tell that these people are playing, going what are these ancient cars like these, these are kids, like their decks are so insane. They're so in sync with all the new things. Their turns take like five minutes. Mine take about three seconds, and you can just tell. And then I'll play a card and they're like what and I'm like, yeah, your guys die. He's like what is that? What? And they'll always what kind of deck is this? What are you using? Yeah, I'm always like, I just made it myself, man, I'm not using some like because every what he's just following some template for my line. But first, and I to me, that's so boring right, like I understand like Oh, this is a this...

...is, you know, a toping were but like on blue book, like it's not. There's no there's zero stakes. Yeah, that's the place to be. Like Hey, I can use literally any card. I'm going to build a crappy Zodia deck. And one of the best things I ever saw, one of the best things I ever saw with someone the building book made a deck that the whole point is to put Exodia in your opponent's hand. So you automatically use the game. If you don't know what Exodia is so Zodia is like it's basically a trump card and you go, oh, it's a very difficult card to even play. But if you play, you automatically when that's the idea. Yeah, you can only use that are type something Zodia in your hand and you just win, like you know nothing, you can do about it. You can't art. Let's just like boom, I haven't you win, but it's a really hard to do this and it and it's kind of use as a trope now anyway. It's not very violet. It's not a very good strategy, but that's why it's funny that you know and and to give it basically that the whole the whole idea of that, this gimmick deck, was I have all these of the Zode in my hand. I'M gonna put them in your hand. So when I do that, you win. You Win The duel. If you just win, let's get the game ends. You Win. It's it was really funny. But to your point, like you do, has changed a lot of it. It's like a constantly vaulting card game. Yeah, and so there's actually a youtube series I've been watching out which I told you about, which is actually, I think, a really good way to kind of get acclimated to how he has been changing. It's a youtube channel called Semo, which is Cei am, and then like eight os like potatoes, like see. But he's been doing series and and I like them jux suppose, because they're one is he's basically playing as this guy in they're going through the history of all the different packs that came out and saying, okay, here the best decks of the time, and this is what it would have looked like if you were playing competitively, thens playing with this other guy, with the like. Let's just end it, because they book has this option where you can artificially open packs like and it'll tell you like well, if you would open this pack, it would have been worth twenty seven dollars and you stuff like that. But so they're artificially opening packs and then building decks with that. So their decks are like way Jankier, way wrong here, and so you kind of seeing the both like this is what the the if you, if you had access to all the cards, this kind of what you'd set the high end and this is what you would see on the playground where I have this card's I'll get to use it. So I think both of those and they kind of go through and so it's, you really helpful because they talk you through like these are why these cards are good, this is why, you know, the people were playing this and that and the other. So that helps you kind of get a little bit of knowledge, while also, if they're hilarious, just like it's exactly what you think. The like pull not particularly you know, you just actually my trepard. That just raging and it's amazing. It's great, that's awesome. But Yeah, overall the game has been the game as of late. I mean it is the game I'm playing. If I'm I'm if I'm at the office and I and I've got a few minutes to kill, I'll just pop open dueling book and rage quit a couple of games work. And if I'm over here with the Thanel a lots of the pretty often we've been smoking cigars and be like as break out a few decks and play. So it's a lot of fun. It's been the game of choice lately for me, so that it's a good recommendation, young or old, get into it. It's really fun thing. Find a friend to get into it. When someone get in to and and the thing is you could spend it like here's here's the end, fifteen bucks, because you can buy a premy deck and it's pretty good. And and they're like like, you buy a premade deck and let's see. You know, hey, I do. I enjoy this game to an is enjoid, this game of what. This is how I got into it. Me and my brother. We got the UGO, the UN and the Kaiba decks, Yep, and so hid it so that I think that's the great way to do it's like thirty bucks. You get two decks that are like oppose each other and then you just and then you just start buying more cards. And especially nowadays, either there are so many different structured decks, which are great because then you could just, you know, you can pick one completely unique of the your friend who picks one and both of you guys will have enough cards to have a full deck already. The deck will make sense with itself. Yeah, and they'll be completely different, so you'll each have your own unique strategies. Yeah, and it's a foot. And then from there, of course, you can buy a little booster pack and and make your deck little better, better. It's a fun way to start, but I would in mean it's a great game. Yeah, and then, and then, you know, the easiest way to expand is just to buy these giant like hundreds of cards for twenty bucks, of mixed lots, and then you'll like you get a bunch of random cards. Then he's like, Oh, okay, what can I do with these cards? It's I yeah, get into you. It's a lot of fun and you don't have to play like you don't have to be hyper competitive about it. Like Rick said, it's the fun of it is making the deck that's yours, right, and then, Hey, if you if you decide, Hey, do you want to be competitive about it, then you can. I don't know why you would like seems really frustrating. You spend a lot of Myne again you here is it's interesting because it has one of the highest caps, like price points. Yeah, it's gone down over the years, but it has like one of the highest price price points for getting competitive cards. So it's like yeah, why? But other just get this, spend ten bucks on some cards and have a ball playing with your friends. We like, dude, this next us. I love it. The one kind of POPs UG like, yes, I knew it. That's a games, but that is my game recommendation. Absolutely all right. All right, so I don't have a game on on my list, but I do listen to a lot of podcasts. You know, we are on a podcast. Obviously we are all fans of PODCASTS, but when I've recommended in the past on our previous like geeking out episodes or whatever, is sci fi five. If you like science fiction at all, this is definitely worth checking...

...out. It's five minutes of science fiction history, five days a week. And not only are you getting some scife science fiction history knowledge, like you know born on this day is you know Bruce Box lightner or you know Caverne take or you know whoever actor, actress or director author, you're also getting things like information about the space program and not just the US space program you're getting information about like this is the whole of humanities journey in tooths into the stars and then Nick Yeah, yeah, so you're getting stuff about Russia and anyway. It's just it's really interesting on that level because I frankly, I didn't know it ton about the space programs. I'm learning stuff about that learning some stuff about sci fi history and, full disclosure, I now write for them. So plugging comes out. He always be plugging. But you know, as as a mentioned before, I've definitely mentioned this months before I ever like knew I was going to be invited to right so and I was truly invited. It was it came out of the blue. So anyway, because thank you, Anna Kitt so, anyway, it's nothing else. Is Not going to take a lot of your time. So five minutes science section history, five days a week. Today's was about Ray breadberry theater, which was a really cool TV series that ran on HBO in the S So Anthology series based on the work of Ray breadberry's pretty cool stuff. So that would be my recommendation. Five Nice. That's awesome. So my book recommendation. So I've read a booking like two months. I did in January. I did read a lot of books, like I've read like ten books in January. So I'm going to recommend what I read in January was the most recent thing I've read, to two books, one that's kind of more classic. Both side five, but ones that's more of a classic in one that's kind of there's a good books. I wouldn't say they're bad books, but maybe not. You wouldn't say are our hallmarks of classic science fiction that everyone should read. All you can argue. So the first is doom. I read done for the first time. I've been I've been I had I've had it for a while. I just didn't get around the reading and I finally it was like, okay, F I'm just gonna say I've made a few attempts to read and it's a beast. It's a big bass really good. Yes, actually like it's legitimately really good. The world buildings excellent and intriguing. The characters are really solid and flawed. You want to see. It's one of the ones where you want to see what's gonna Happen next. And the ending was it was very strange, like what happened? You were like, I did not see that coming. Yeah, in a good way. It wasn't like well, that was an anticlimax. It would that's not what happened. It was really interesting and it hints at this much, much, much bigger universe which obviously Frank Herbert bolt out over like ninety books or whatever. He I think he wrote like the first five and he passed away in the his son wrote a litany of books afterwards placed on his note. Right, but but similar to the Lord of the rings, he builds out this much, much bigger world that you just get hints of in this book, stuff that makes you say, Huh, what's this about? What's that about? And they do a really good job. He does a really good job of not explaining every single thing. He's you just mentioned certain entities and the extent to which you know about this entity, like you know this federation or this this Hedgem, hegemony or whatever, is what characters talk about and reference them as though they already know about them, because they do. And you know it voids. It's really commonplace today, especially in Superhero TV shows, where one character has to explain the thing, even if everyone knows about it. For the audience they don't do that. They just they say, Hey, you know, there's more stuff going on here, but it's not central to the I mean centers of the pot, but you don't need to know everything about them. We're just giving you hints and you can kind of think it's very here's a great job of building the intrigue of this massive universe. Get out the sense that the world is massive and all dependent on this one, that that this world is taking place on is central to everything because of the spice and how that works, space travel and it's very strange. But yeah, it's really, really sat all, Dude, Dude, very good book and the new one, the show or movies, so so dunes had a couple of adaptations. It is a new one. Come. Yes, yes, so there's a new movie. Part one drops, I believe, in December of this year. WHO's the WHO's the lead on that? Timothy Shalomey is going to be Paul of Tradesmothy Shaloman, Timothy Shabobou. But that not like that movie is going to be worth seeing just for the cast alone. I mean as the cast is. Yeah, Star studded. Yeah, yeah, Timothy Shalomme, Jason Momoa's Duncan Idaho. Jessica Ferguson is said. Wait, yes, little potent, exuse me, excuse me, Rebecca Ferguson. Becca Ferguson is Lady Jessica, who's Timothy Chalomey's mom's turtle, the Bass. She's amazing, great character. It did y'all watch Dr Sleep new. Oh my gosh, like she was. She was those, only that was the seat. It's the sequel to the Shining Shn yeah, but she's the villain in that. Rose the hat, holy cow, I'd only ever seen her in the greatest showman before, where she's Jinny Lynde, which, you know, small but important role. Sure very, very different for rose that. Oh...

...my goodness, like she was freaking scary as rose the hat. So I'm really excited to watch her play Lady Jessica. Javier Bardem is Duke Lebo. It was Timothy Slam, his dad. He's wait a minute, no, no, Po Dameron, it's in Hanna. Yeah, he is, and he's I'm sorry, he is Duke Leado, but but yeah, have a year. Bar Dame is in it. It did. There's just a studded cast, so many and Zindia. Zindia is the the the few millie. I'm blinking on her name because again, I know her name too and I just read the book like two months ago. You know, I've I've tried to watch. I've seen the SCI FI channel adaptation of dude, which is pretty good, but I fell asleep in that, and then I've watched so the parts he saw get the like process over good. And Ryan, who loves those books, said it was a really good adaptation. The one thousand nine hundred and eighty four David Lynch Dune is an acid trip watch while drunk. It's startlistically I love it. It's not a great adaptation, but again, the cast is really good in that too. But yeah, I've never made it through that when I are always fall asleep there and it's not because they're boring or just I think I just watched someone. I'm tired anyway. Yeah, anyway, yeah, the the the new adaptation is going to be really good. Yeah. So then my other recommendation, the lighter, the easier side to read, is the thrown trilogy. The originally turns on run of the BAT. I've only read the Po it's really good. It basically picks up right after return of the JED. Or Yeah, I thinks five years after turn of the Jedi, but you know how look is growing. What makes thrown such an interesting character and Timothy's on like the the the book, the version I had had basically commentary by Bison on it, which is really interesting. So zon came over from like military novels, like he had written, I think, both fiction and in fiction. But that's that was his like red he he was modeled after like a Brilli. Yeah, that was just real general. So he said okay, and he talked to soldiers. is like what kind of general would you follow? And he's like kind of inspires that. That inspires me. Right, not, not, not. These kinds of guys were like, you know, Oh, you failed me dead right, right. What kind of people say, Hey, you messed up, we're going to be better next time. So, you know, a good leader who's just, you know, working for what we might well, we considered an evil cause. Right, right, it's still a good leader. So so that's the idea of front and and I love the way it's like just he's not super powerful, he's just super intelligence. So, you know, all the powers with everyone else, but he's just a brilliant tactician, which comes across really well because on used writing military novels and he's like how does he learn about people? He studies their art, which I you know, I was really cool. You know, he's very mysterious and enigmatic and it's and he's really cool character and he's someone like yeah, if I was in the art if I was in the empire, I would vault with thron right. So it's really good. It keeps showing your toes. You like, good Lord, how is the how are the rebels doing win this, because thron has the upper hand the entire time. You, like, even when the rebels win, it seems like thrown. It's really into yeah, it's interesting, be just because most it most star wars stories, like the bad guys are kind of dumb, like their brutes, and like even vader to an extent, was menacing, but he was kind of always like misled, like there are a few times he got the upper hand, but you didn't eat. Didn't I'm obviously like honestly really know how he got the upper end, which is like he'd appear in a room. When you walked in, you're like, oh shoot, it stars Vader, and it would really go into the detailed like Oh, this guy's a genius and he's out smarting made every corner, and I thought, I think I still even think at this point, with the prequel sequels all this stuff, other than maybe, I mean you obviously you could argue that cidious was the biggest master mind because he deceived an entire galaxy. So he probably takes the cap for like most most most sinister and brilliant evil guy. But thrown is a really well developed villain. Yeah, and he's just he's enjoyable, like like it's just it's just like it's very, very, like you said, it almost puts it the whole time like Oh, this guy is way more experienced in this whole right, he's going to win every single battle, and that's how you're going into each one, just because as opposed to somebody going, okay, well, we're clearly with the good guys. We're going to win somehow. Yeah, mad scary, but you know, it puts in a different light. He's he is a really good character. Sorry, just to plug him. Did you say? Yeah, I know he's. It's because solid and it's interesting because I feels like the because I think Mentalian as could was it actually mentioned in four wrong? Yeah, yeah, well, and thrown was brought in in Star Wars rebels, and I'll be in a different manner right, in the different manner. So He's technically a canon character now, but I'll also at because it sounds like you read the book with Your Eyes. I tend to read books with my ears. If you get the audio version of really, honestly, any of the Star Wars books, but if you get the the audio version of the throng trilogy, they are all very well produced. You Get music, you get lightsaber. It's a laster sound effects. Its Theater version, right, it's it really is. It's...

...really good. They're very well narrated. I'm blanking on the narrator's name, but he he's done a lot of voice work. He's also the voice of Mr De Martino on Dara, which now now the age gap is a parent. Dria was a cartoon on MTV, for the UNINITIATED, and Mr Young, yeah, and it's an MTV and yeah, well, there were used to put this channel where they would play music videos. What's it? Is a video? Okay, Gho still make them. What else is okay, go and Taylor swift still make them. Nobody else to us. Anyway, he, Mr De Martino, was one of the teachers on there. He was kind of neurotic and like his signature features, he had a bulging eye and he kind of like like everything. I would pop out. That's really just look it up at some point. But anyway, they are very well narrated. He does the voices like insanely good, like his Lando is like, I mean not, you know, my doing, Cherbacca. Yeah, Losing Joey, like his Lando is really good. Is Han and Luca really good? Even as light is not bad. So you know it. Anyway, it's it. It's they're very well produced, very very fun and enjoyable to listen to. So I would definitely recommend that as well. Yeah, so that's my book recommend. Awesome. Well, Greg, what you recommend we read? So I actually have read a lot of books this year. So far this year I've read seven books, but done I don't read any fiction like like like literally. I don't know if I've ever made it through a book like that. I've I read a lot of Christian literature, a lot of political literature, things like that, things that really catch my interests. But I read a couple of biographies, but I don't know, every time I get into like some kind of fiction or a novel or something, it's like my okay. For for those of you don't know, I've told people on this podcast and I'm dyslexic. Before I read really slowly. Now I have enjoyed listening to things and honestly, both of you guys mentioning those things. So I've done the whole like throng, like I know everything about that story, but I've actually never read through it or listened through the book in Stentirety. So here and you say that and then you talking about Dune, I was like, you know what, I should just do audio books of these things, because I list I listened to a lot of books on audiobook. I read. I also do do a lot of actual reading of again, like political literature, Christian literature. But yeah, I've never given it a try to listen to an audio book of something that I you know, some kind of novel or science fiction that I enjoy and I do take a little on car ride. So I'm thinking maybe I will try to jump into something like that. But I'm going to give it go for a weird recommendation here, because you guys did books and and I'm assuming this won't fall into any specific category. So this will just act as my book recommendation, but it's just something I've been in too lately. Okay, and it's going to some little brutal at first, but I don't want you guys to get away, to run away. Okay, MMA, okay, did you say? So? Mixed Martial exactly high is relevant? See, I'm not. I don't know why you would have thought that recommendation would have made Nathaniel and I run away, because whenever make it's really boring. It's not that I think it people make people run away. It's just I understand people feeling like that's really abrasive. Like it, because it's a mean it is is it's brutal. Yeah, it's definitely brutal. It's definitely a brutal sport, for sure. So for me, the kid I always I was always one of those kids that you know, like the whole fake wrestling would come on, that's it. They're be like this would be so cool if it wasn't just so embarrassing, like it's embarrassing. That's so perfect that it's just it's embarrassing to watch for them because like you're like, Oh, you're just in these weird, obviously over the top, tight outfits, and it's also embarrassing for me to ever admit that I watched something like that. So so there's that in but I always thought that that concept was just the coolest. I'm like, well, yeah, it's awesome the idea that these these fighters are going to come out that are different styles. This guy's really small and thus and there's guys really big and this guy has a signature remove and all these things. But none of it was real, and so I can never thought about them. When I got older, I you know, I'd seen things about the UFC and things like that, but I never really gotten into it and from a distance it disted seeing kind of brutal. I'm like, Wad, they're just kind of throwing two guys in there and like yeah, I will pay whoever wins. But but when I it started because my so I used to live in Miami, my pastor the Church I was that I've grown up at my whole life as a Brazilian guy. And he is a purple belt and Right Times Ali and Jiu Jitsu and he actually won the world's competition in Vegas. It's called the world's competition for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for for Purple Belts.

Prop was one step below black belt. So he was at one time the best Purple Belt Brazilian Jiujitsu fighter in the world. He's a guy you do not want to mess but so that was the first time that I got any kind of interest in like Oh, this is kind of like because I went to like he gave free classes, like tin free sessions, and I went to them because I'm yelling and athletic and I'm like yeah, this will be fun, and it totally kick my butt. I was totally dead. I'm like this is u volleyball. There's a guy choking me. But that was the first time that I thought okay, it would be interesting for me. I'm you know, I've gone to what five lessons at this point and I'm like, Oh, I'm already a master, right, but but it's really interesting learning. Hey, this is why we grab their arm here, this is we twist it into this hole and they can't get out and then they have to tap and we do it like wow, this is all very coolness. Is Defensive Mechanism. This is how you play off your back. This is how you play when you're standing, this is how you play when you're on top of them, this is that you play when you're on your side, all this stuff, and it's all about position and getting to these different positions. If you fight better from your back. Then it's about how do you get into position where you're on your back? And all these people didn't be you up different styles. And so seeing all that was so intrigued and of course my mind goes, I wonder how I master Jiu Jitsu would fight against like a master at karate. And then I was like would be such a GIG. It's called ultimate fighter and it's on discoverag channel. No, it's called the UFC and that really exists. And and that's where I transitioned to going Oh, like there really are, like really some of the best kickboxers and karate fighters are big time UFC fighters right now, and it's really interesting to see a fight where it's like hey, like so one of my favorite my favorite fighter right now in the UFC'. His name is is Chris Wonder Boy Thompson. Chris Wonderbot Thompson. Wait, I'm getting the first name wrong just because I'm okay, his last night last name is Thompson and he goes by wonder boy anyways. So here he's like he's like a old school karate fighter, like this guy fight sideways, bouncing up and down with his hands down in his side like throws all kinds of crazy kicks and he is just the coolest to watch. He has virtually no ground game, which means that if he's fighting somebody whose specialties wrestling or Jiu Jitsu, he he's like really doesn't want to get on the ground. But what he also has this really good takedown defense, so people that try to take into the ground he's really, really good at not falling to the ground. So he keeps the game on on their toes. And then he's one of the best strikers in the UFC. So I love watching him because he's super, like tricky and super unique and whatever. So I and so that's how it started. We started with me being like I want to watch Stephen. That's it, Stephen. Yeah, I just I saw. I saw the look in your eyes. I'm like, she knows already quick Steven Wonder Bore Thompson. So he was the and in the way it worked is that I would I would wait and say, okay, he's fighting what they call them as cards. When there's a UFC fight, it's not like a game. They call him like a card. It's like, Hey, the UFC card is happening this night and on the card are five fights, you know, or six fights, where it's gonna be and you'll have any someone in boxing. Yeah, same exact thing in boxing, and they'll be, you know, least least anticipated fight at the bottom all the way up to the main event. So anytime Stephen Wonder Bore Timson was on a card, I would go and watch that card. But of course when you watch the card, then you kind of get glimpses of some of the other fights and you say, oh, man, with that guy's really cool, like he's so and so and he's a really big name and he's fighting this guy, and then they build the back stories, but this guy's kind of a jerk and you're like Oh, and like they kind of have a little bit of those characteristics of that old school fake wrestling where like some of these guys are just characters and they know that acting that way is going to get them these big fights and so they're just total let me like everybody knows Connor McGregor at the name and he's hilarious. I mean he's hysterical and he's just he's completely over the top. But that's why every time you know like he's about to be getting like do a fight everybody wants to watch because he's so wild and crazy and and half the people are just like yeah, shut this guy up, he's so annoying, and the other had the deepuff started to like that and because Irish accent is charming, but you're being like like he's anyways, after watching a few of these, it's got it. It's just kind of like it's been like an exponential increase to where it's like, oh well, now I watch two fighters, and so now that I watch those two fighters, now I've watched more UFC. So I've gotten accumulated with more fighters, and so now there's like five fighters that ever like and now it's so anyways. Lately it's gotten to the point where it's pretty much like my second favorite sport to watch. I really like UFC. I really love seeing the art of like the different styles of fighters. So this past weekend there was a title fight and one of the guys, Charles Olivera is a, is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu like master. He is the most submissions and UFC history. He's just he's like an Antaconda. He's tall and Lanky and just really weird and the end the other and the other guy is like you're really if you saw this guy you'd be like, oh, he is tall and Lanky and weird. And in the guy's fighting is Michael Chandler, who's just this like ball of energy. I mean short built and I mean just just super aggressive. So basically you just described me. In the day it was basically Ashley Anythingel versus me. But...

...but it's funny because they're both great wrestlers on the ground, but Michael Chandler was a was a world class wrestler, like an actual like like of college, you know, skill wrestler. In Olivera is a Jiu jitsu artist. So they both like to take the game to the ground, but they have completely different strategies once I get there, and so it's just and it was amazing fight. It was two round in Olivera, one on the second round anyways. So that's my plug for UFC, if you guys can get past the brutality. So yes, sometimes there are some brutal knockouts, but the game has evolved a lot to where there are so many safety precautions the point where you it's really nice to see something that intends happen and then right afterwards the guys hug each other and just say hey, man, like was such a great fight, like congratulations, good stuff, and old one boy. Obviously there are few times where there's bad blood, like there's any sport, but it really is become a fun sport. At first I didn't know how to feel. I'm like, Oh, this is a little brutal, but I was like you know what this is, this is for these guys there, this is their sport, is their craft in there and they're they're getting better and better at and I love watching that. So that's my plogue for the UFC. All right, all right, actually made aretty good at this. Right. They're more relevant. I try to remember wherever first only sign them, but were random. We get random in per palpatine noises and we'd like what it doesn't like. That's that's not relevant to anything I just said. Just like you've gotten a lot better. You have done a lot of really he's learning like which keys on my keyboards. I don't have changed them. I like wearing Oh, you know, like it's like the level of the level of relevance your sound bites is really going up. Yeah, I can't. All Right, hopefully you've done this all right. Actually hit all right. So something in kind of going a little ways from pulling a little bit off of a dressing a little bit something to watch. Watch Star Trek. Hell Yeah, I'm on my startre I need something the gay. Yeah, yeah, so, so I have made it no secret that I love Star Trek. I Love Star Trek more than Star Wars, which, yeah, if you had told ten year old me that I would ever say that, I would have smacked you and called you a liar. Very to see it technically, a lot more star Trek. Yeah, Oh, yeah, but I think one of the reason I've Got Star Trek on my record list right now, part of it is because I'm taking a star Trek class right now with Dr Am h Sturgis, who is both my friend and academic mentor. She's teaching of Star Trek classes summer at Segnal University, which is my Alma Mater. I'm auditing it, and so so star Trek is really like heavily in my brain at this moment. So it just started last week. So working through original series. Obviously there's not time to watch every single episode of every single series. Also read some books and watch the movies this summer. So she's taking like a selection of episodes, but she's doing a really fantastic job of not only highlighting important themes but also highlighting the influence star Trek has had, not only on science fiction history, but science history also, like social and cultural history. I don't know I mean the thing you mean. You may know this, but Gregg, you may not. Nichelle Nichols, who played Lieutenant Hura, was originally going to quit star trek after the first season because NBC, who is the studio that had star Trek at the time, would not allow Gen Rowden Barry to make her a full cast member because she's black, and so she was really frustrated with that. Yeah, and was going to quit. Dr Martin Luther King called her and said don't quit. It is so important for you to be present and be seen because you are showing people that black people are important and they are equals. You are on a you're on the bridge of a starship among among people of different races, nationalities ethnicities. It's so important for you to be there. Don't quit. And so she stayed because of that and consequently Michelle Nichols was later hired by NASA to recruit women and people of Color for the space program she also directly inspired an astronaut, Dr May Jemison, who is also the only astronaut to ever actually appear on Star Trek, which is cool. She's a she's a guest star in an episode of Next Gen, which is really awesome. Also influenced will be Goldberg to become an actress, because will be Goldberg saw her on TV as a child and said, Mama, there's a colored lady on TV and she ain't no made and and and she literally chose to pursue acting but the cause seeing Michelle Nichols on screen. So anyway, that's just one example of the way star trek has influenced history in a really positive way, socially so. And I don't mean just watch original series, watch all of it. Pick pick a series, especially being space man, I say deep space nine has some of the best writing of any star Trek period.

If you want, I think the Best Ensemble cast is next gym. Plus you have Patrick Stewart as the lead and he's just phenomenal in anything. I'm good. Um, my personal favorite voyager because you get Catherine Mulga, Kate Mulgar, who is just amazing. They it also does a lot with the board, which are really right. It humanizes the Borg. In fact, that's the only one I've watched all with her, which is like an unusual and for it to be the only one you've watched. So yeah, no, but he space nine is excellent. So it's next Gen and I think enterprise is interesting as a prequel. You also have one of the most positive portrayals as of a southern person on theirs tripped up, aside from hey, what about the puckering dawn? And then you've also, you know, of course, if you want another positive portrayal of the southern person, to force Kelly as Dr McCoy on original series is also fantastic. But anyway, all of Star Trek is good. Discovery is great. Discovery has like it's star Trek for a new generation. A lot of people who were into other versions of Star Trek are big fans. That's okay. It's not their start and I think it definitely made some missteps, but I think it's solid overall. Yeah, and it's improves. Yeah, yeah, I think season threees is my favorite so far. I love the hopefulness of it. I'd of Tilly as somebody. So I got tested for adhd in December. I don't have Adhd, I have a lot of the markers of it. So the Sike said I probably have an adhd brain. So my brain is wire. So what you're saying is you have maybe HD. Maybe hd is something like that. But sorry, I have I have a lot of one of the markers of it, but I don't have enough to merit the diagnosis. But I watched tilly and I'm like higher and like bobby and that's me. So anyway, Much Star Trek. There's something for everybody. If you want a series that, overall, is imbued with just hope and you just need something to, you know, help you feel better. Like, honestly, like Star Trek's my comfort TV. Like I watch a Star Trek and I want to be better human afterwards, and I think that's something that good art should do, is should make you want to be a better human. So anyway, that's my recommendation. Watch Star Trek. It's very accessible. Again, I don't have a star trek on the SUMBOORD. I have some spots of them and that yeah, so I'm gonna recommend some Musac Musac so slap me. So the REC on two albums. One is very heavy, one is not. So the first I'm gonna recommend is the album that got me into metal music. is called suck out the poison by he is legend and I would argue so. They have like four albums. Their first album it's like nine hundred and two one h or something like that. Nine one, I suppose numbers, but it's really good. And their second album, stuck with the poison, is even better and the third and four albums, my opinion, is not very good, but it's I think it's really good introduction to harsh vocal metal because he sings but then he also screams and just every song it's just so catchy, just really fun to listen to. It's not super, super heavy, like blowing your ear drums out, but it is just it's a solid metal album and it's on the lighter end of a parish vocal metal and it's really good introduction to that and just every single song of that album it's just phenomenal. Yeah, so that that's that's one. And then then for for a non harsh vocal for like a smoother vibes. Fashion Eagle by cake or Comfort Eagle, Comfort Eagle confression. Okay, Comfort Eagle. Okay. I mean I mix two of their albums. They have like fashion plate or something and Comforty, Comfort Eagle by cake. This is my in one of my little brothers. This is our road trip album. Whenever we're in the car and on a long drive together, we listen to this entire album. It is so stinky good. I mean you got opera singer, short skirt, long jacket. Yeah, the only one that it doesn't have. Then people like, oh, that's the takes on it is the distance, which it's a good cake song, but it's not the best take. It's got opera singer, it's got short skirt, long jacket, it's got what's the other Big One? Cup Comfort Eagle. Comfort Eagles Amazing Song. One of my favorite lines in any song is his cigarette is burning. Buddy never seems to ask. I just love wine. So every song on there is fantastic. It's a great introduction to take like it's really it's it's really good. It's really chill, great car music. So Comfort Eagle by cake highly recommend. And then, if you want something a little heavier, so tuck out the poison. by He is legend. These are both much older albums. So you know, maybe you're familiar with your I'm almost certainly you've never heard of he is legend because they're very small band. But you might have heard of cake and he probably heard the discover the cake. You probably hear shorts were long jacket, because it was also the intro to Chot. I say it's a theme song to Chuck. The only other the only other kick song I've ever heard is they did a cover up. I will survive. Yes, they did cover on it's pretty good cover. Its like it pretty good cover. I don't think it's rights. I've heard some people say that's better than the originally it's not, because the original is just outstanding, but it's a good cover. It's definitely cover. I'm like, yeah, it's a one one for just this needs to exist. Unlike short aside, one of the strangest and worst covers are overheard was a metal cover of let it go from frozen and it was sung by a metal band with a male vocalist. And so he replaced all the Queen with King, Uh Huh,...

...except for he didn't replace any other words. So it's like, Dude, you see about a girl, you see about a guy, because it's completely cleared right. You have to change all the lyrics are not just one of them really funny, but that was a weird one. I was like that. But yeah, so suck out the poison. By he his legend for something. We'll have your little head maggy. It'll pump you up and then come for Eagle by cake, for just Nice. She'll super good, good. Huh. Yeah, so what do I do? Album or do a your TV show down in a certain order, so you know, you do whatever I have. I have. I have both. So I guess. Okay, I'll do album and I'm sure I'll circle back and get my TV show in. So I'm gonna say I mean, I really have to introduce this artist. She gonna look them up to reference Song names here as I'm speaking. We need some music. When we have some look comes to yes, you would put Jeffardy and what I just do right. Great, I'm cleaning your song. Okay, all this as thinking through songs. Let me tell you the story about one of these strangest albums that so so back in ours. It Georgia Tech, not Georgie check. Sorry, back on was a vanderbilt. So even earlier than that I ran a radio show with my with my roommate nate, so we were nat name. What is the all the requisites for maintaining your show was every year, because the the station would get CDs like free. See examples like wreck the album coming. Record companies with send albums to this right station and you'd have to what's called program them. So you have to listen to the whole thing, write a little blurred about what it sounds like, your opinion of it, what it sounds like, and then, if a song is explicit, you at the market explicit. Some people do not to play it, and then you could say how does the song open and close, so people to know all this starts like immediately, or this is like a really long opening is and things like that. And had an album. I don't remember who the artist is, but the name of the album was bitch get fit and it opens with this old man and it was some I don't remember. It was some like like female Norwegian funk duo APP Neferti store like it was. I was some like like pop music, like experimental pop music is, I would describe it. Or maybe you look a little electro experiment to all electro pop music. I don't know. I don't them. By Natasha Alexander, Natasha Alexandra. Wow, should. And the first track is this old man talking about the generesis bitch, get fit, it's live, it's hot. Is beating three little words that to inspire so many emotions in there and the and the background. It's just him going big, get fit. This is so weird. Yeah, so it's kind of gray. Yeah, I did. Okay, okay, so the good you can have. No. Natasha Alexandra, known by the stage named in all X, is a Canadian dark pop singer, songwriter and keyboardist. She was born in Hamilton, Ontario and grew up there. Now lives in New York City. So look up in Lx if you want to. Yeah, and Alex get fits get the intro track is yeah, that on the close with that, just to be just like no, I'll open with that pop right, like what is? It's just the most bizarre thing. All right, great, so I own of a production company. I very much like musical scores things like that. That has led me to I really enjoy instrumental music. That's a lot of wireless in the music, is the way that it sounds. Occasionally I'm like, Oh, the song says some really interesting things and like and like that's really cool or that's catchy. But honestly, more so it's like this the sound song sound cool and if so, then great, that's why I like it. And so it leads me to a lot of instrument mental music. I really like piano music, but more modern style and instrumental music has led me to a couple really interesting bands, one of which is Pogo. So Pogo is a DJ artist and he he really he just creates. He creates entire albums using just bits and pieces and sounds from either like movies or TV shows or Old Disney movies or whatever, and he'll just take a few of these sounds and phrases and slide them all in. And each kind of album has a different theme. He did one that was heavily kind of featuring stranger things and had a lot of a lot of quick you know, just like like Lucas, do you copy? Did Lucas, do you copy? You did, and so like all these like different thing and then, but the song sound great and then they're all just these little quick references that you're like, oh, that's from that one movie, Oh that's from the and and his most recent one, or second and most recent one, because I was just looking he had a new one come out in between, but was it came out during like Halloween time, last November, and it was all about the shining and so like, like like the like. One of the song names is Red Drum and it's...

...they're all just really interesting and it's all these quick little little little lines here and there from these movie BEA's and they're pret it brought together to make these really interesting songs. His most popular one is called forget and it's just a lot of these old disney, you know ones in the reason why that one kind of blew up and made him famous is because there's a youtube video that shows the clips of the things he's using as they each commenced. They like flashes, really quick flashes of like of like, you know, Alice in wonderland skipping down and all of USN's cussed to Pinocchio and and because to this and even sounds from the songs and those Disney movies, he cuts out and overlays and stretches out and does all these things to put a whole entire thing. It's just all these Disney things. So that's a great one to listen to. Another one in a similar vein, but maybe a little more comedy, is a guy called Yuri Wong. He's interesting because on Youtube he sometimes he'll even do his live and he takes only like a specific like almost like a specific line from a movie. So he like the biggest one to listen to, the only one that I've liked gotten to one like I'm adding this on my spotify as something I will consistly listen to, not as a meme, not as funny, because it sounds amazing. Is called for ants and I don't know if you guys have seen zoolander. Yes, but that's the school. Yeah, Center for ants. So that scene where he's like, he's like, what is this a center for ants? Just that right there. He he takes he takes that and I just want to let you guys like listen to just the very beginning of this and you can just see how like, you can hear how good this is. I can pull it up. Okay, it's just called for ants. Ury Wong and you'll just here it start to come in and it's just the whole thing is built around that one line. What is this a center for? Aunts? It's got to be three times bigger than this. And that's what was in the thing so good in the background. What is this? What is that? Then? You do not have the same skills as very wrong. Wow, wow, you can stop it, to do it, but like it's there. I mean obviously you can tell he's got skilled where he makes it this really kind of just like kind of all you know surrounding song. But anyways, for somebody who likes to listen to music oftentimes for just the way it sounds and I'm not super interested in like philosophical information given to me through music. Most of the time I'm just like hey, just give me something that will kind of lift my spirits or that'll make me feel a certain way just through the way it sounds, and it's kind of led me to more modern stuff like this that I will naturally say I'm a listening to like DJ music all the time, but I find both of these guys to be extremely talented and really entertaining to listen to their new stuff, especially pogo just because, I mean, the new album will come out and it'll have a specific theme and it's like Oh, stranger things, like I know all these quotes, like yeah, like they're all so much fun. So, yeah, that's awesome. I also listen to music for I mean I listen to a lot of different music, but I lately I've started, I gravitate towards movie soundtracks because I don't know, I feel like I want everything in my life to tell me a scory and that's what they're made right. Movies on tracks are specifically made to be like hey, we're going to take you through a whole bunch of emotions here, like jump on board, like get ready, buckle up them, here you go. Yeah, yeah, and see. Yeah, so that's awesome. Yeah, yeah, but I've I mean, I can go with another one if unless you you had something else you want to jump in with, Zanie, but relatedly, I have something. No word. Okay. So one of my recos on here is support your local record shot. I collect vinyl, just something, Ryan, and I look at my large wooden collection. No, I do not have a super large vinyl collection, but it tends to. It's been trending upwards here lately, and most of the stuff I picked up here lately has been movie soundtracks. There's a cool...

...record shop I really love in Mint Hill and over here called hearty boys records and comics. You can guess why. They have records and they have comics, an advertising truth than ever, but they've also got other interesting like Retro Media, which I personally just find really fascinating. Like he's got a huge laser disc collection, Ashley. What are those? Your discs? They're kind of like theres, the kind of is tron on? Stop It. So actually brings up laser discerbator Max. I'm just two years younger than Ye, and actually I'm five years older than you, my friend, but anyway, I like media. Okay, that's funny, because they only collects vinyl as well. So yeah, that's vital. But what the thing that I think this is way back their view game of me, and you mentioned something that would have got me the vinyl, which was the fact that the sonic adventure two battle soundtrack is on buy yes, please, I want that. Oh, welcome to by house. That we put in the vinyl record. Dodd D Dudun face is knuckles, all right, sorry, after we're ruining. Your point was great. Was Great, but it means what's interesting is vinyl has also sold any other form of like physical music media for like the past two three years? Yeah, because everything's available digitally. So they only but people on buying seas anymore. Yeah, buying vinyl. The buying vinyl because they want to have a specific album. But Greg was talking about, you know, instrumental music. A lot of the stuff I've picked up has been movie soundtracks, because I want my I want my music to tell me a story. But you know, with that too, like I've really gained a greater appreciation for what music does in movies. So, like on my last trip there I got a John Carpenter record. John Carpenter has been putting out music with his son and Godson for the past few years and he's now got three albums of lost themes. So I picked up lost things. One I had. I have three. I need to find two. But then I also got original pressings of Star Trek to the wrath of Con and Star Trek through the searcher spot, which are trek towards us. Is Jes shatner going shocking ing? UH, shockingly, no, but you know, and and back in January I got an original pressing of Star Trek, the motion picture picture. So both of those are by Jerry Goldsmith. Really Beautiful, beautiful scores. The search for spot is James Horner, who most people probably better know the music from titanic. So anyway, all that to say, the most lead the Horner. Horner does, I believe, land before time as well. Oh all thirteen of them, or the first, original and only good one is a really good one, or one is a banger man. You go back and watch that and you're like so sad these things aren't watch that. It will make me talk heavily applicable themes to our times and like they're very heavy and it's very sad. I'm like, this is at an amazing movie. What? Why was this made for a bunch of kids? And then I see it's need to watch amazing movie. It's totally true, but I'm like Ryant. They like wanted to get ruined by fourteen sequels that were garbage. You your garbage. They go there, you go. So so one listen to movie scores to support your local record show. All right, so I go to. Okay, so two more movies. So first we we I want to recommend animated. Technically, movie is a coupling the two strings. I don't hear anyone talking about this, like hardly anyone. Like there was a lot of critical, like strong critical reception to it. I don't know anyone else who watched it. It's a gorgeous movie. It's stop motion animated. It's where what's it called? Kubo and the two strings? It's stop motion animated and it is one of the most gorgeous movies I've ever seen and it was great. Was Okay. So there's a scene where he fights this basic of a giant skeleton. They made a massive set like it was it was like a ten foot tall model of the skeleton to like grab things. It's it's it was just really good. It was heartwarming. It touched on Japanese folklore, so, you know, is a little different, but it was just so well done and so put so moving and so touching that I was I was like mad. And it's funny because all the articles I've ever like, why is nobody talking about Kubo, because it was so good. It was so good and I never hear anyone to talk about it. Several friends of mine saw and said it was fantastic, but I had not seen it and I did not realize it was stop motion animated. Yes, that it is. It is stop motion animated. Is just so well done. It is just so gorgeous. You can it's one of those...

...movies where you can watch it, you can see the love that the creators put into it, the time and the effort, and it really shows into it into a good product. Those are the kinds of movies that I really think are worth watching because you can just see the passion that went into this project. It's really, really good and you will make you cry. Hundred hand make you cry it is so good. So yeah, Kubo too. Strings that's my animated recommend my not animated recommend and I think I've talked about it once before. His ink. Yes, I know what you're talking about, but I've not seen it. So ink is a only only actually look it up. Not Ink Heart. It's a different movie. So was it two thousand and nine? It was two thousand and nine movie. It was pretty it's not rated. So it looking at indie flick now there is. It's there's nothing like objectionable in it. In the very beginning the main character drops like nine bombs in a row and that's like it starts. APECIAL kind of goes that is it forecast and crew probably know when you've ever heard of Christopher searing, Kelly Quinn Hunter, Jessica Duffy, J like it. And and it was clearly like kind of on the lower budget end. And and so it kind of shows. But they were very creative with how they kind of worked around the fact that they didn't have a high budget. And basically the idea is so there's there's this guy and he's he but the beginning of the week he gets fired from his job and his daughter gets kidnapped by this this creature, this you know, like hunchback of Notre Dame looking guy called ink, and ink wants to become an incubus, and so the counseled incubi says say, oh, kidnap this girl and bring her to us and we will will make you an incubus. And so it's all about ink cannapping this girl. And now not in the physical world like, because incubus like invade dreams, right. So basically she falls asleep and then she's in a coma because incubis is like stolen her away from her dream and so these characters who are basically like the the the good characters of the Dream World, find the dad and say, Hey, your daughter got kidnapped by and they're taking your daughter to the INCUBI. We have to go rescue her. So it's like him going along with these other character or is to rescue his daughter from ink and it's just really it's I don't want to say too much about it because it really would be spoilery, but all the characters are nuanced and the twisted. The end is brilliant and the things that they do with the budget they have is just it's just such a employs movies where at the end I was like it, I just picked up on a whin. I was like, Oh, that they you know I I wrote the Boll was like yeah, sure, why not, and then just blown away by the movie. One of the few movies like that. I sat back was like that was just a phenomenal movie, like s Utopia, where I was just like wow, blown away. I was sitting back at the end when I didn't expect much from the trailer. I was like, Oh, be fun Disney movie. Then just being blown away by how good it was. Same thing with ink. I walk sat down, I watched it, I was like, Oh, this would be fun, and then all this is really interesting in the end of just like that was worth my time. That movie was worth every second of it and I want other people to watch this movie because it's so good and it again, just like with Kubo, I even less so. I've never heard anyone talk about this movie. I've never met anyone who's watch this movie, because it was really like a small thing that I just happened to stumble upon back where. I'm still many Netflix DVD's. That's how I stumbled upon I was like throw it in the cute back in college and and man, if you haven't seen it, go find go find it. We see the streaming anywhere because it's just, it's just it's on Amazon prime. There go, Amazon time. Just a phenomenal movie, just a phenomenally no one was streaming on Netflix for a while and it kept getting like imended to me and just and I never took a close look at it, but just looking at like the main post, sure I thought it was like an anime film, because I every like everything does have really strong, very but yeah, yeah, I was actually like a live action film. That's really fascinating. Cool. It sounds like a really interesting, like dark fantasy, like it is. That's it's really interesting. It's really interesting and it plays, it plays with with themes of redemption and and temptation and things like that, and just a really good way. That's kind of surprising, the good child actor. So, okay, very cool. I don't know if either of you'd seen your Gayman's mirror mask. What you describe sounds kind of like mirror mask, I think. But anyway, yeah, that sounds really fascinating, very cool. All right, Greg, it's also cool. Of No, Um, we should make it a movie. Man. Hey, I'm okay. So I wought a TV show. I had one and I'll just talk about it, and it just popped like recently back up again, because I've watched the most updated season. I've mentioned in a few times on here, but I haven't gotten into much depth. But attack on Titan it is a so this is an anime show and I don't ever say, I wouldn't say I'm like a crazy anime guy, not that I wouldn't recommend it to people, just that I haven't gotten into hold on of anime. Some of the like the weirdness of a lot of like really people that are really in animated. Oh yeah, it's just it's just a little too much for me often times. But I have got into a couple series that I've been like man, these rivals, some of my favorite TV shows I've ever watched, and so I would say I'm an Animafan, just off of the couple that I've...

...really gotten into. anyways, attack on t is the most recent one that is kind of captured my interest and it is currently going on. So it'sac on Titan is. On the surface levels it's this you know, action horror type thing where there's this revolutionary era, maybe you'd call them. They've got cannons and muskets and things like that. I know, an era of life that seems they're living in this in this world where they're behind these humongous walls a hundred meters high, and there's three different levels of those walls and a big circle. So the outer level are the poorous people, because they police protection. The inward level, in the middle are your middle class, because they've got two walls protecting them, and in the inside layer, you know, is the most protected. So there are three layers of walls and there was the richest people. So that kind of explains the world, the society. But the reason they have these walls is because there's the giant humanoid creatures. They basically just like look like giant naked people with no reproductive organs. So they just look like a nice skin giant like mannequat. No, they've got skin. Some of them do, some of there's one specific one that doesn't, and it gets complicated, but did not have skin. But the essentially just look like giant like babies, almost like be able to say they have downs, like their heads are cocked the side. They're often just like glazed over eyes and they're just walking around. But they eat people, and so there's a there's a very disturbing element of the show where you see essentially these giant humans eating small humans, and it's it's that that imagery is jarring. At first I'm like, Oh, just like they become the most menacing things you could possibly think if they do a really, really good job at making you terrified of these things. I mean they are horrifying and scary and at first she like, Oh, this is a stupid that gets not a dinosaur or a Mont Oh my gosh, that guy is leading another guy, and so they're all different sizes and they do and the great the thing that I think the show a man to so many things so well it's hard to pick a specific one. It's obviously got fun action. If you're an action person, there's some really cool fights and just the way that they go about trying to combat these titans is really interesting. They fight with what they call odium gear, which where they kind of they kind of jettison around using cables like Comic Batman, and they've got these swords and they've they don't know much about these titans, but they know that if you slash the back of their necks that they'll die. Anything else they'll just regenerate. They can regenerate arms, heads, fit whatever, and so they kind of shoot around on these cords until they can get behind them and their necks, and so the action as obviously cool. I would say the top two things it does, though, is one, it builds intrigue. I mean you watch the show and instantly you're like Oh, like, I want to watch the next episode because that was mysterious. Oh, and you're finding out more about the society and how it functions and how each wall has a small section that kind of protrudes out where to try to funnel the titans to that section, to where there ever is a breach. You know they'll go after that section. But they get the kind of politics behind who we put in those sections and how it's kind of oppressive to certain people. And you're meeting a bunch of people that are going into the scout core, or the scout core is is the part of the military that goes outside the wall tries to claim new land. There's different sections of the military, some that stay inside the walls, some that that right on top of the wall walls, and so the Scout Regiment is like they die all the time. That it's about. It follows this one specific kid who's just really zealous to try to kill tell he's very hungry to to fight titans, but he's not very good at fighting. He like he's learning all of this stuff. Are Likely he's failing at everything and all of his friends are you. You know, they're teaching him and stuff, but but the world build building an intrigue keeps you watching every episode and it stays very like it's got enough that you can understand and build on and so but they but also enough that if you rewatch it you get more out of it, and I think that's the bet. Like, if you're going to do intrigue, it's like the Christopher Nolan Roll, like like modern Christ version an Alan, way too far, like I mean, you can't enjoy that movie until you've watched it four times and then you're like oh now it's awesome and you're like well, you shouldn't have made a movie that you can understand four times. But then you also want to go in the other direction where everything is so on the nose that you're like, wow, this isn't I'm not really getting anything out of this, like he's the bad guy because he said he's the beat, you know. So I think it rides that line perfectly of giving you enough intrigue making you want to watch the next episode, while still giving you enough to enjoy what you're currently watching. But the last thing, and probably my favorite part about it is that it develops so many characters, like I mean, it seems like every character in the show has purpose, and that's where I've never seen a show do that before where you you introduce a new person you don't know and the show takes time to like make that person a real person. And they and I can't even tell you honestly, as somebody who prides himself in the actually having to write people's stories like for a living and enjoys that as the best element of movie watching and of TV watching is, is character building, like telling a story of a character. I can't even tell you how they do it so well, like it's just hey, the in there introduce these characters that I mean like spoiler like tons of people die in the show. For a show that that it introduces and develops almost every character that comes into view an amazing way. There are...

...probably like five or or for safe characters like so you'll be like, oh my gosh, this is amazing, like they've been really developing this guy for two episodes. Oh, his head like he just got bitten in half, like he's dead now. And so burst you're like, Oh, why did this show randomly make a mistake and develop this character and Zoh, no, we need him to die. But then you start to realize note like the show is trying to put you in the feet of all of these soldiers. So the whole point is that, more so than what's happening, which is kind of fantastical. Yeah, there's these giant Zombie things eating everybody. More so, with the show is about is how these people are handling it, and most of them are freaking out, most every single one, I mean the toughest ones. They'll come to a breaking point where they're like almost shivering and fear and they're trying, they're explaining how they feel and why they feel those ways and they're sad. And what the show is really trying to do is get you to join them. Like it it's doing it desperately by introducing characters and saying this isn't going to be some guy you watch get eaten and killed, this is going to be somebody that you learn about their family, learn about their fears, learning about why they're here, learning about their cause. You Watch them get but trade and then eaton or something, and you're you're just destroyed and you can feel like that character feels in the show and it's not, in my opinion, there's there's a healthy balance to where you're not just totally distraught the whole time, because I have watched shows where I'm like you're doing a really good job, but I don't watch this because I'm just sad. It really isn't. I mean there there's enough victory in the show and redemption that really keeps you coming back. But Man, as far as character development of people, that it just it's so seamless I can't even see it happening sometimes and I'm like, Oh, I've fallen in love with this character and like I don't know where that came from. So if you're someone who can again, it's finals back to the UFC thing, if you can get past the brutality, because there are definitely sometimes that it is a scary show and a little disturbing. It's such an amazing show. I mean it is I can't like on every level that I watch it. And again, I had finished seasons one, one, two, one through three, and is in reality each season's like two seasons, because they called him like Oh, this is the half season point and it's essentially it's a twas. So essentially one through six and then for the last season and they came up the first half of for which is essentially an entire season, and I just resais I'd watched all six, you know, originally a while ago and really loved it, but then reinvigorated my love for it after watching this last half season where I was like, oh my goodness, it's still just as they're still putting out episodes that are just amazing. So sorry to rant a lot about it, but that is I'm so hyped on that show man I could, I could, I could talk about a show forever. I've heard very good things and it's I have a I've been long anime watch list that I haven't gotten too in a while, so I hadn't that's definitely on it. So many people recommend it, saying that aren't great. Right, so it's that. That was the watch list. So it's funny because you mentioned that they build, builds out the characters really well. I found that the really, really, really good Maga to an excellent job of world building in the building stuck in their characters. Yeah, I care about and I think the one of the best person at this, which, and this is so funny, because the man it is as exceptional and the anime is Ni unwatchable because in the anime they do flashbacks they think they had it, like no, but they've had it like it's fragile, Shipping International. It's ridiculous. It's available flashbacks to something that happened within the same episode, like that happened five minutes ago. Why are you sure? And then the whole thing. Dog Jumps on the bed and the guy turns he's like, Hey, you remember when the dog jumped on the bed, and that's one piece, one piece. He's so brilliant because he's like, Hey, here's this thing that gives you superpowers, right, but it makes you unable to swim and everyone's a pirate and it's like the most brilliant or balancing everything. It's like the most brilliabalny everything, like, Hey, you can have superpowers, but then you're screwed if you fall off your boat, or you can have not superhers and be slightly less and be disadvantaged in a fight unless you can knock get it out of the boat. Brilliant. And every single person has different powers and different backstories and it's so unique and interlocked and there's were densial arts and people die and it's touching and it's so brilliantly done and it's a thousand shoppers and you're like, he's not even close to the end. He's not. It's like your Dr Martin. This man is gonna die before he finishes it. Everyone's gonna get the suffer and weep tears blood because no one can do what he does. Yeah, one piece, the mega brilliant one piece the anime really am not just to watch because it's just like, even though it still great, I mean still great, you can get past the flashback within the same episode of something kind of five minutes earlier, because the characters it, loofy, is one of my favorite types of characters, is that he's earnest, he makes mistakes, but he always tries to do the right thing, even if he even if he screws up and gets the SNOT kicked out of him, he gets back up and he tries harder and he's so lovable and he's so dumb too. He's a such a great character. Yeah, so, yeah, I feel that same play like you. How did you develop all these secondary characters? Like I will all of their names, I know what they're about. They were in like one chapter and I still know who they are. It's brilliant. So, yeah, not to piggyback off of...

Greg But one piece. Sorry, actually, all right, all right. So, so this is going to be my last one. It's gonna got one more. Yeah, and it's going to be a dual recommendation, not a you Doo duel. But that's all. I've been watching it in Spanish. It's great. So kind of months ago I picked up a copy of alien number one. It's put up a comic. The comic it's put up by marvel. Marvel written by Philip Kennedy Johnson, and so it's a it takes place like a hundred two hundred years after the events of Alien. The film was see two hundred years I believe. So, yes, hundred two hundred years. I don't remember exactly. Ripple was still around right at this point. Maybe not, but anyway. So, so a little little blurb, because this is this is really cool. The iconic cinematic terror take makes its marvel debut. Gabrielle Creuz gave his life to Wayland Utani in the case of an alien tech he barely survived, almost literally. Recently retired crews is trying to patch things up with his abandoned son with the help of his friend, a bishop model Android, but his reentry into civilian life is not going smoothly, and his encounters with the deadly Zeno Morph are far from over. Philip Kennedy, Johnson and Salvador Larocca team up to tell an all new tale of the Titan of horror and science fiction that has scared audiences for decades. No one is safe, no one is innocent and no one can hear you scream. Oh, Whoo Hoo, I'm sorry, scream. Yeah. So, anyway, so the first issue released on March Twenty Four, two thousand and twenty one. This is this is new, new just came out this year, just like like one months ago. Yeah, so I picked up the first issue. I didn't get a chance to read it until like Monday of this week. My goodness, this thing is fantastic. I'M gonna like go to the comic bookshop tomorrow pick up the the I think issue at least issue two is out. Maybe issue three might be out soon, if not already, and I'm going to sign up for a subscription at by local comic book store because I am really impressed with like the kinds of storytelling they're doing, the ideas they're exploring within the alien franchise and, you know, just creating like this interesting story that is not direct. You know, of course it's related to the xenomorph's that's the only thing that it's carrying over from the the film franchise. But Anyway, I'm really impressed with the storytelling. I was a little disappointed when I picked it up as like Oh, there's no ripley in this book, you know, and then I'm like disappointing because I love Ripley. But it's a really great story. Definitely would recommend and, in tandem with that, support local comic book shop, like I'm going to do. I'm going to get a subscription for this book because I just think it's fantastic. So I would recommend alien, number one, released in March, put out by Marvel, written by Philip Kennedy Johnson. Did I just recently I was telling anything, I'll, I'll rewatch alien too, and I'm rewatched alien three. After that, aliens and then alien. Those three movies are in my opinion. The fourth one was a little wonky. There's a little weird because I hate three. You hate three. Three is terrible, okay, but you know why? They kill Newt shed. Yeah, but so much potential and then you go and blow now that is kind of them to virtually every alien movie is like he was ripply in a bunch of people, everything matters. The next movie is just Ripley, the whole bunch of other people. They're all going to really matter and then they're all going to die and the next movies is going to be so it kind of stays on them. I mean I agree. Even even the sergeant guy that Cho was with is an interesting character. The you kind of wish, you know, both of them would have stick, stuck in around because again, I mean in the end the movie maker part of me says, yes, develop more characters and do a better job. But all like the side of me that really appreciates the alien movies and also Ripley's character own and over all those movies, is great. She's just an awesome character period. I think she's one of the most consistent characters I think when I watch movies that I'm like she's she just she acts like the character should act the whole time. There's there's no those red flags where you're like, well, the character wouldn't actually do this and like you can tell it's the writer and like it really draws you out of the story to be like, okay, this is jarring because like this birth she acts how you'd imagine really would act pretty much in every scene. They do a really good job keeping her consistent. That's something I was really thinking in the second one. In my defense, I've watched halfway through the third one and then I came here to this podcast, so I have finished the third one yet. All Right, I've seen. I've seen all of them a long time ago. This is me rewatching. I obviously watched the second was like, oh my gosh, this is amazing. I'd watched the set the first one not not too long ago, and of course I mean the first one is is legendary. So man, after the watch the second one I was like this one's really it's kind of just good. I mean I like it just it's up there with the first for me, and I was gonna Watch genres and so I a different job. But I enjoy...

...both very much. I mean, obviously alien's my favorite movie of all time, but yeah, aliens is fantastic as well. Yeah, anyways, but yeah, that it was interesting. You mentioned that. Now just be on that kind of an alien high recent yeah, yeah, I'm rocking my new although I haven't played a end night. Really intend to alien isolations. Apparently it's just phenomenal. That is they only like modern game I am interested in playing at all. It's a video game. Yes, witter, name Horror Games. Replace daughter plays Ripley's daughter who's like investigating and then name and aliens shows up and you got like run away from it. Apparently it's incredibly good. Yeah, and the and like in that kind of ties into the Alien Lore Anyway, because there's some like deleted scenes where you find out, like why Ripley went on the nestromer voyage in the first place, and it was because she hurt. She was mourning the death of her Dar Ye. HMM. Yeah. So my last one, I got two tiny shows to talk about. AM could keep a brief go for one I talked about a lot on here, animated show Batman the Babe in the bold. It's super good, it's Super Fun, it's Super Rocky, it's super out there. It is a love letter to both Batman and just all of DC in the best possible way. It just celebrates the weirdness that of DC. The weirdness of Batman. It. It really is. It really feels like the s Adam at West Batman reincarnated as a show that understands that it's the s aims Batman. It's so good. It's got these great cold opens that have nothing to do with the episode but that I have that their own continuity. He teams up with aquamand's like a goofball bad dad. He's always like with his family, but always the skip family duties to play with Batman, play hero with Batman, and it's just it's so good and yeah, I just highly recommend it. Will introduce you to a lot of stuff in the DC universe that you probably wouldn't see otherwise. Like wanna be's like spread of brauner beast, but he's in multiple episodes and he's awesome. And then they have a whole thing where there's like bat might, who's like the eleventh dimensional being, who's the biggest Batman Fan and they bring him in. Is like when they when they cancel it. It's like the last episode is like Batman Canceling Batman, the Bras in the goold it's so good. It's like by or there's three or five I think it's five seasons and they're all just a treat, very snackable, like there's not really any compinuy to just watch one episode, enjoy it, highly recommend it, and they one episode I've seen is the musical episode, one episode use amazings. Yeah, were wonderful. And speaking of good segue, speaking of musicals, you know there are a lot of like musical team you should like. Okay, so a lot of shows have musical one offs, right, like the flash. For some reason. Yeah, that happened. The Flash, the C Flash, had a musical episode. Yeah, this is sort of thing happens. SCRUBS had a musical episode which, incidentally, is I think my favorite episode of scrubs ever, where a woman comes in and she's got like a brain injury and it makes her perceived everything as a musical and it's so good. It's so good. It's a really louberous, we good episode, including one of the best songs of all time, Guy Love. So good. But you know, most of the musical shows are like glee and high school musical, where it's, you know, it's literally I s will call it, and it first out getting musically. It's about people who would do music naturally and kind of lost a little bit of the of the of the show that just has musicals but isn't about music. The show that I'm coming keeping me back to that I just loved and was canceled up two seasons is gallivant. It was two thousand and fifteen, two thousand and sixteen, and it was so stinking good it had no right to be canceled. Now tell me if you've heard of any. So the only two people loved recognize our Timothy Otminson plays the the Eagle King, and Vinnie Jones is as like his muscle. I don't think I knew who either of those guys are. Timothy Obinson plays lasted or on psych. I haven't seen say. Oh shame on you. I know. And vinnie Jones plays the bulletooth Tony and in snatch. I haven't seen snack. Oh my Gosh, you love that. It's such a good movie. Lost just that's so good. anyways. Oh, okay, so I know who Timothy Almondson is because I've seen, I recognized his IMDB profile with you. Yes, I've seen him in things before. But there's also a Joshua Sass Mallory Jansen, Karen David, who's gorgeous, and place Princess Eili Isabella. She's, I believe, Indian, Indian American, or she's born in India and she's multi ethnic, definitely mostly Indian, but she's she's fantastic. As princess in didn't tell me Lee Jordan was in this, Luke young blood and Presley Darren Evans, Stanley Townsend, genevieve islanberry, sophea Ma share like great cast, but he she'ss girl. How suger hower was in five episodes. It starts so much fun and it's hilarious because the the start of the can season there opening number for the second season is how did we not get canceled? But I'm just going to play the theme songs. You can get kind of a feel of wait. Back in days of old there was a legend told about a hear own known as guy on Hedrick's Ha Cliche, and this like every...

...every episode, the opening theme song would talk about what's going to happen in the episode, of what happened last episode. And it turns out like the Jester on the show is the one who seeing the opening song and it's just it's so good because Timothy Iminson starts out of was like this Genera just invokating, just like killing everyone to gets in his way, but then he turns into like a put upon every man because the queen is just like harass, harangue him all day to be more evil. He's just like it's it's so brilliant. Yeah, it's I can't describe it because again, it's a musical, so it's all about the it's all other numbers and then numbers are really good at the numberable and it's got really commute time. It's just it's fantastic. It deserves in two seasons and you need to people watch it. The only problem is you literally can't find anywhere. It's not seaming anywhere. You can, like, purchase it on Amazon video. You can if you're like me and still have a subscription to Netflix with DVD's. What's true? That's true. That's true, and I definitely I will say this in the most legally ambiguous way. I acquired it, so I'm going I'm intending to rewatch it soon. I acquired it for no money and I'm planning to re watch it. So you dubious man, dubious man. Hey, look, I'm paying for nineteen different subscription services. If I can't find it on one of those, that's on you, not on me, like I'm paying my money. I'm paying my money. But yeah, so that's the last thing I have. Is just galloping. I don't watch it. It's so good as it was a musicals like to recommend blood machines. Wanted her. Okay, I donely want to watch a movie, Tho making questions whether by other movies. Have Seen Creator a TV show and every reasoning movie that they split in. Everything about this just screams is this fake? Look, the episode will be thirty seven minutes long or any of the number. You could do more credits and and no, literally like like like twenty four minutes of the episode will be credits and your watch like thirteen manty, like, wait, is this? Are you serious? And I'll just start scrolling through your if let's let me tell you some things that happen in blood machines. Okay, there's a lot of nudity. There's a lot of need nudity. It's not like sex nudity. It's not like people have it. It's more like she's she, he's a planet and like that, things that naked. That happened in blood machine. She's die, gets aroused by a woman stroking his gun like actual physical the run for good about that far and then she shoots him in half. Yay, women turned into a planet, the giant women, fists, giant Naked Into Bis just baseball naked women that formed together to make a giant naked woman than she in the plane rice to space like as the flicking, like a superking wishing, like Jack Jack Spear's compass. I strooms and naked, giant, obscenely large button. Yeah, that makes zero. Sends about. Looks like a separate planet behind her, like Oh no, that's the but that's the butt. Yeah, it was. It was multiple naked window buzz are that's to form a giant vultron naked woman. All right, there's a different naked woman inside, like manipulating the thing by control it, by pushing and pulling these other naked women who, by the way, have a weird glowing upside down cross covering their genitalia. So someone had to go in and edit that and you're like, okay, I said this. who was the paint wrangler who got that right job, who had to cover up all that, and we're explaining it. It really is that. I make us sound like crazy, sounds like something we heard. It sounds actually, why did we want to make the lane? We were? We were catfish. Let me explain for two seconds. So there is a DJ artist whose knee excapes me. He makes takes. There's there's this specific song he makes called, I think it's called Turbo Racer, very very, very, very very cool song, and the end it's very much so he uses sounds from from old, like old arcade video game sounds. So it's like Dodo Luloo like it. His music sounds like you're stepping into an arcade from like the early S, like it's very cool, like you listen to it and it's it gets you pumped, like you ready to go play ski, like Ski Ball, like whatever. And but they're specifically. There's that one, there's one most popular song, Turbo Racer, and there's this, there's this kind of famous he's it gets he's a music video artist and he makes a music video to it's very retro. There's people in it. You can tell pretty much everything is on a green screen. Tons of colors, looks very sin city esque and it's very cool. I mean you watch this and you're like that was that's pretty dope, like that is a cool music video, very like like catchy music. And from that that the musician and the the artist that made the music soundtrack, the the music video said Hey, we want...

...to make a TV series, a a SCI FI TV series in the the producer said, Hey, I want to make a TV series and this artist, the guy who did the music created Turbo Racer, is going to do the soundtrack for the whole entire series. And so you're kind of like Oh right, well, that's interesting enough. And so that they go and do this. Essentially it's like a kickstarter esk thing and they get so much funding to it they don't even make a pilot. They make what they claim to be like like Oh, like like a half season. It's what was it? Five episodes? It's three episode we episodes and forty minutes and fifty minutes of each episode was. Yeah, I mean each it was like episode one, like forty one minutes, episode to twenty seven minutes, episode thirty one. It's you're like, oh, this is kind of bizarre and then each one of them had a different amount of credit time, all ranging between like twenty two minutes and fifteen minutes and so in. I mean it was just like like but thing it was explaining is one hundred percent. And if you do there's context to that, barely any context. And if there was, you couldn't hear it because the sound editing. You remember by the sound Ed anyone was it just like everybody was talking. You couldn't hear words. Was Loud base in the background. Like what is that? It was the noise of the ship engine. Yeah, like fire it here. It was just a really bad I mean it was awkward, it was it was kind of dark. It felt weird. I felt like I needed to take a shower after that. Anyway, sorry, we were at the end of the movie. We got sidetrack. But ter of yeah, that this is the entire Rad is. This is not reckon. Do Not racey. That's the anti time. I'm looking at that pictures on IMDB and little catfish. You it looks very and true like it this is incredibles, dunning and weird. And then like then I see like Oh, here, here, all the naked women in a mile that you were talking about. You know, thank you. Borrow a phrase from Jesus. It's a whitewash tune. It looks nice in the outside, but it's full of dead end phone, a bunch of weird nay could women. It's a hund catfish like you like? Oh, like, I'll go on a date with you.
