ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Day 5 of the Daily Episode August Challenge ... John talks about the second-largest polluting industry in the world, deceny, nakedness, and previews a couple new movies. @johnemotions

Oh Hey, welcome back to EmoDojo. It's me again, John. So I just recorded an entire episodewith my mic turned up too loud. It was all distorted and that's whatyou get for trying to record without some headphones on dirt. So I putmy headphones on and I'm recording now and I don't hear the distortion, sowe should be good to go. Today I am on the road down ina place called broken bow, Oklahoma, which, if you look on amap of America, Oklahoma is about in the center and the lower right corneris broken bow down there, kind of where it meets Texas and Louisiana.So as I'm driving today, I heard a interesting fact that I wasn't reallyaware about, but once he said it out loud, I totally understood itand that we're he was talking about the...

...largest polluters in the world. Sothe largest polluter are the oil industries, but the second largest. Who Doyou think the second largest polluter is? It's the fashion industry. What.Yeah, well, now that I said it, it makes sense. Sotakes about five thousand islands of water to create a pair of jeans and at shirt. And if you don't want to use as much water. Youcan use synthetic materials like polyester and whatnot, but then that's all made from petroleumproducts and those things don't deteriorate for ten to twenty years. Then youcombine that with the problem in the fashion industry in general. They used tohave spring, summer and then fall winter, basically two seasons. Well, nowthey've got fifty two mincrow seasons. Every week is a new season inthe fast fashion industry, in which they encourage people to buy the latest greatesttrend for that week and, of course,...

...to keep things affordable. This isall garbage clothing. It's poorly made, it's made in sweatshops by, youknow, virtual slaves, or I mean literal people that are basically slavesthey earn so little money in the worst conditions. In fact, about eightyears ago there's a factory in Bangladesh called the Rana Plaza. Apparently there's likethreezero people in there. The inspectors had told them it was unsafe. Thebanks on the bottom floor had cleared out. Well, the factory workers upstairs wereforced to work again. The fucking thing collapsed, killed like one hundredpeople, injured twenty four hundred plus people and never really made the mainstream news. Doesn't at that capitalist narrative, you know, got him get the newclothes of the week. Yeah, I just found that interesting. You knowsomething, well, why do we wear clothes anyway? We have climate controlledbuildings, climate controlled cars. We don't really we could like turn the temperatureto whatever makes us feel good and just...

...run around naked. Like, whyare we still covering ourselves up? Is that this old religious thing? Andmost of the people I know are like atheist or agnostic. They don't givea fuck about religion, yet they still wear clothes. Let's all start runningaround naked. Why not? Well, and that also kind of says seguesinto the issue I have about antimask people who are say they're being forced towear masks. Well, they're also being forced to wear pants. I talkedabout this the other day. We'll talk about a lot because it drives mecrazy, the hypocrisy. Why do we wear pants? We don't need towear pants. Oh, it's against lot of running around naked. Why isit against the latter run around naked? Because it's some old Christian values?Will fuck all that, you know, if that's the only reason, thenthere is no reason why we should wear pants. So why don't you,you know, rage against that machine and run around naked? Just go aroundnaked. You would save the planet, you know, you do eliminate someglobal warming. You proved to the man that you're not going to kneel downto his pants laws. That would be...

...really brave of you and it wouldbe in line with your I'm not wearing a mask stance. So you couldbe like, I'm not wearing a mask, I'm not wearing pants, I'm notwearing a hat or shoes. You fucking ridiculous people in the masks,no masks whatever. What's just get a mass put a mask on, Dude. Put a mask on your penis and your pants over your head. That'sa good look. Put Up fucking face mask on your crotch and some pantson your head. That's about what I think of those folks, anyway.That kind of ridiculousness. Have you guys heard the new Metallica Song? Nota new song, it's old Metallica Song, Redone for the jungle cruise movie.Check it out. Pretty good, pretty epic. If you've heard metallicaplay with the symphony before, then you kind of get the idea they coulddo nothing else matters for the rocks new movie. Oh and hey, asI mentioned it, look what fucking comes on the air. Is like nonstopcommercials for this thing. Looks pretty good.

I heard it's a bust, though. That's too bad. You can't make every ride into a movie.Just promote the new ride seems a little transparent to me. Speaking of musicand movies, you know that Dude Pete Davidson from SNL Saturday that live?Well, he is going to play the role of Joey Ramone in upcoming movieabout the life of Joey Ramone. So that could come out cool. Iskind of got that droopy long face and apparently he's taking the roll pretty seriouslyand he's a you know, working on his acting chops and doing a lotof research on Joey himself. So, you know, fingers crossed. Ihope that turns out. A lot of times I see previews for things thatI'm like, but I'll go with that. Also, the new ghostbusters trailer.I'm down with that idea. It's actually a sequel takes place. It'sthe grand kids of the original ghostbusters, kind of like a Jumanji story whereapparently the ghostbusters, the original ghostbusters,...

...hit all their gear in the basementof an old house and, as this story goes, the grandkids, youknow, because of the economy, they got to move out of their normalplace and move out to the country and the old house that they got willedto them in a will and when they get there they find the gear andof course they open it up and all hell breaks loose. So it lookslike a lot of fun, a lot of good special effects. You seethe stay puff marshmallow man again, men, I should say. They're small andthere's lots of them and just, you know, a bunch of goodstuff. So that looks good too. I'll check that out and I'm reallycurious. I don't know if you guys catch over the Air TV anymore,like network TV. A lot of places I've lived in the past were kindof hilly and didn't get good recet option, but when I moved to the flatparts of America, Antenna TV is still a big thing, like becausethey got digital antenna. So you get pure clear signal of free television,like you don't have to pay for you buy your TV, you plug itinto power and Bam you got all these channels and if you got the Internethooked up to the TV, got even...

...more channels. So it's pretty cool. So I'm always looking at interesting things. But I saw a commercial for thewonder years, remember the one two years Kevin Arnold all that. Well, that's being redone with black people and Don cheetle is the narrator, voiceoverguy. So that should be interesting. I'm looking forward to see and howthat goes, seeing if they is it like a completely different story or theygo on like episode by episode, same script, same script, kind oflike they when they did the office, when they change the office from theEnglish version to the American version, each scene is almost identical. So I'mcurious if they do that with wonder years or just write their own new dialog. Should be cool. I'll give it a shot. And I don't knowwhat the fuck happened to Lego masters. I mean Shit, it's been likethree weeks since they had a new episode. Hello, we don't have that muchpatience. So of course Fox right,...

...get on at bucks. You can'tdo news worth the shit and you can't seem to put a consistent Sitcomup each Tuesday. On a regular basis. Whatever. It's all I got really.
