And what's gonna shoot the Shit liveand see what we get. All right, all right, mother motherfucker, listen. Listen, crazy music from the future. Listen Shit. Yeah, no doubt. That was totally like fucking s like. You know,reminded me of. Yeah, reminded me of like when they used to makesci fi movies in the S, like judge dread or time COPP or shitlike that, and they'd go to the nightclub and they're trying to deep rightand it was always just awful, fucking bad electro electronic he somebody's attempted withthe future music might sound like. I Love Dude. They even had thatwith the fucking drug dealers to in the clubs. Did you notice that toin the s? Oh yeah, Fuck Yeah, of course love that Shit. The Dude. Think about that. Similarities cocaine and fucking stupid use.Something's just never change, dude. It was the cocaine much better than lastweek. Dude, yeah, I got went to my real doctor and gotsome normal shit for the pain from the shingles. So that's all much.I feel much better. Fantastical, man,...

I'm I'm happy for you. Igot I was beginning to wonder whether you were going to weather this shitor it's just gonna fucking just grind your ass down. It ground me downpretty good into way that I just wasn't prepared for it, like the numbshoulder that I couldn't move. That was fucked. But when I went togood old Dr Kong, I got a got a new doctor, Dr Kong, and that mother fucking gave me some his first name King. I don'tknow. Yeah, I think it's I don't know what. I don't wantto say what it is because I don't want se racist. I don't know. Anything I say next is going to sound stupid. So it just DrKong. He gave some steroid graam from a fucking shoulder. Gave me somepills that block nerve pain instead of like, HMM, you know, I'd beprofun. Just prevents inflammation. But the pain wasn't from inflammation, itwas the nerves themselves. So they got some shit for that. which isalso for your mental health. I remember taking this one. I had braindrugs called the neurontin. And then we're one other thing. What was it? Oh, some crazy shit that makes me sleep at night. Knock meright the fuck out. Some crazy shit that makes you sleep at night.You're like, I need more of this. Yeah, it's not ambien. It'snot like a sleeping pill. It's some kind of I think it's inthe end a histamine family, but anyway it fucking knock me out. Thefirst night I'm a Whoa, but sleep is what I needed. So yeah, after about three days recently a Vat, I feel yeah, about seventy five. It isn't amazing how powerful sleep is to us? Yeah, Ilove sleep. Sleep is totally underrated. People more. People should sleep more. But here's the think of it this way. Man, fucking Vince McMahonbuilt the WWF, not the WWe, the WWF, and those fucking daysof just not fucking sleep and much, man, he was doing a threehour day kind of kind of Shit. So after they were done taping,saying like raw, you know any of those TV tapings? Pay Per views? That motherfuckers up. Yeah, till...

...like fucking two, three in themorning. He sleeps between three and six, I heard. Yeah, I believethat some people are into that too. For sure. Let's it's definitely billionaireman. Well, not necessarily, because there's lots of people that sleepplenty. Are Billionaires do there's people that like you know, they're the proposedthat no lack of sleep, four hour work week kind of billionaires. I'mlike, oh well, what do you do the rest of time? LikeLeisure? Like okay, I want that job, because there's a bunch oftech people in tech that we used to stay up all night on like somekind of speed, not crank or coke, but like adder. Are All yeah, yeah, and they'd be up. I did that Shit, Dude.That's how I crash my fucking Fedex van. Yeah, I don't.Yeah, speed with under the wrong hands is a bit much, but anyway, I doubt that that was related. But anyway, yeah, that somepeople happen to do it. Some people take pride in little sleep, andI used to be like that when I was in my s and the olderI guy I'm like why, there's no benefit. I feel much better andI get way more done if I get eight hours of sleeper, like seven, seven and a half. Yeah, yeah, but it's got to betotal rem sleep, though. Man, if you're in that Lake just Irested my eyes and just kind of relaxed state, that's not sleep. It'srest, but it's not like that full on deep sleep where you know whenyou wake up you're just like our yeah, I it's going to take me acouple of minutes to fucking get out of this. Yeah, like knockoutsleep. Yeah, I love that kind where you might have a dream ortwo. You're not not necessarily, especially because I smoke a lot of cannabisand I don't have a lot of dreams. But man, if you feel likeyou slept like a log and you wake up next morning like Whoa,that's strass me either. Dude. Cannabis is, to me, the fuckingkey to sleep. Yeah, and a lot of people understand that in alot of people don't. What's your strain of choice right now? Are yousmoking some tonight? Oh Man, I. Oh man, I've rolled. Irolled a new joint, but remember...

...that fucking quarter that I got fora really good deal. That you're just like, dude, that's fucking goingto be shitty. Ass Smoke. No, dude, that one has been perfectfor me. It gives me the perfect like just cool, not paranoia, anxiety high, just one that just it just it hits you and you'relike, Oh, I'm either going to sleep, I'm either going to jerkoff or actually, yeah, either or more or less. Sleep is doyou think it makes you horny? We Dude, weed is my AFRODISIAC.It does put a little tingle in my dangle, man, it really does. It makes it grow. It makes it grow a lot more, andI there's Times where, after I'm done smoking, you know, I fuckingpull my pants down and just enjoy the nature hippeness of life at that momentright I look down on my Dick and I'm like, why is this motherfuckergrowing? This is cool. I'm not thinking it is growing. Oh Hey, by the way, I welcome to the audience. I had started theshow before you came on, Mike. They're right over here behind me.Nice time. I don't care now, I just want to let you knowthey're over there. So say hi, Hey people, g shock, Gishock people. Hey. Well, you know what, they don't call meg shock for nothing exactly. I got some reggae going for you, MonI did. Seriously, that's some fucking hippie ass shit of just being nakedand just feeling, just feeling, man, not jerking, just feeling. Wouldyou live in a commune of naked people if you got to choose thecriteria? WHAT'S THE ALTERNATIVE? Your Life...

Now? I they got to livewith a whole commune of naked people. Are fucking die? No, orhave your life now? I'm just saying, would you live in a commune ifyou could, like still have all your stuff and whatever and just livinga commune for a while? Would you do it? Hmm, I'm justsaying, like, put a pause in regular life and none of that changes. House, cars, money, all that just stays the same. Wejust take a pause. Would you? Could you try living in like anaked Hippie commune for a year? Oh Man, that's a challenge. waschanged three months, not a change. Not Going to change of six months. You'll start to change after a year. You might be a different person aftera year. Yeah, you you definitely be a different person, especiallyif you cannot go back to the life you well only. I think thisis why I say you get to pick the criteria of the people that livewith you. So that would make you better. Right. So, I'mnot dude. I don't like live with people period. So the consume soextreme challenge. What I'm thinking of? It's about the size of a ranch, a small ranch, and everyone has their own bungalow separate to itself,but you got to come out and eat and cook and work on the fieldsand shit together during the day. And sure, the thing is, everyoneis naked. It's a naked commune. Wait, wait, wait, andin other words you have to be naked or it's just clothing optional. Nowit's a naked commune. MMM, now, I like wearing clothes when I wantto, because you do know I'm raised with that Shit. Yeah,okay, so it's just just my naked part of the pro part of theprogramming, because we don't really need clothes. All right, there's plenty. Warminside the house or cool inside the house. We got air conditions.Not Always, cars are always we have no, I'm not, I'm notgoing to agree with the the whole programming thing to the hundred degree, butI will say I do. I do like covering up, man, Ido. I was just talking about this...

...on a different episode about the clothingindustry and they got US fucking so like wrapped around their pinky and rainwash tothink we need clothes. And it turns out there the second biggest polluter inthe world. I didn't know that. And who is this company? Americanapparel. Know the apparel industry overall is the second biggest polluter in the world, the second bit. Well, okay, WHO's the first? Oil? Okay, so oil. And then close. So where they bas in clothes comefrom? Well, the issue with closes and many fold. But,for example, say you work with cotton, there's issues with flooding and overpopulation ofthe fields and whatnot. Plus it takes about five thousand gallons of waterto produce one pair of jeans and one t shirt. That's wasteful. Ifyou use synthetic clothing like Rayon or polyester or anything else that comes from thepetrol industry, and that Shit doesn't decompose for ten to twenty years. Soand then they used to have just two seasons in fashion. Now they've hypedit up to fifty two micro seasons once a week. So are you beinga rabble rouser and saying we should not fucking wear clothes because of the environment. I'm trying to tie it all together with the mask. Honestly, forpeople who don't want to wear masks, like you, dumb motherfuckers, arewearing clothes already. No one's forcing you to. And if we're being forcedto, why are we being forced to wear close why is that a lot? I'm not, I'm not, I'm not, I'm not. I'm notdown with your cause, Dude. HMM, fucking I'm standing here in the boothwith my Dick out. Okay, yeah, yeah, yeah, Iknow you are. I I have my my Dick holstered right now by myunderwear. You know, it's the way at work. Leather Strap. Yeah, exactly. Fucking Rob Halford's here with his fucking you know beard and ShitFuck, it comes in the rooms. Oh Hey, oh, hey,whip his ass a hey, hey.

You know what, Dude, let'schange the subject really quick, and you just please do fucking segmented it perfectly. You just played a nice south park sound bite. Oh yeah, Iremember that show. Did you see what happened this week? They have anew episode. What know? These motherfuckers signed the hugest deal. I thinka comedy central history. They resign with comedy central for I think, twothousand and twenty nine. So we're still going to get South Park, butsupposedly, supposedly, dude, almost a billion dollar contract. That's some Howardstern money. Dude, they're like the Howard stern a fucking hat. Yeah, but but they earn it. They earn it more than stern in myopinion, as much as I love Stern, those motherfuckers are way smarter than him. Yeah, they've led a generation of society really, you know.I mean people can do throw a billion dollars at them and now they gotto keep just making fun of everything that happened in society in animation form toentertain us. A good at it too, they are. They are. Well, yeah, I miss it because I'm like, they don't make anyepisodes. I like it. You're supposed to smell like an episode a weekin a season is like twenty episodes. I'm worth. What the fuck isgoing on here is I got three episodes or a mini miniseries or some shit, and that was it. It's not happy with their progress. I knewsomething was going on with the fuckery over there. HBO. Yeah, well, you're you're one of those types where I can tell when you get intosomething, you want it to keep continuing to go. I want, Iwant concerned to see. That's all just consistency. I don't like I can'tBinge Watch physical, for example, because I'm already into it, so Ihave to wait till the next week. Good, good, I'm glad tohear that, man, because I think beinge watching after nine o'clock is okay, but if you're binge watching, say, like from noon to like nine o'clock, who's you might want to rethink...

...your fucking priorities. Yeah, getout. You should be doing something at noon with your life. I mean, whatever your thing is in life, you should be doing it at noon. Now, I'm gonna fucking throw that all under the bridge right now andsay, like, I had to do that today because the skies are sofucking smoky and it's incredibly hot out here right now that I'm like, I'mgetting high, drinking bigger and a fucking want kind of stay. So mustsolve. So you've been watching physical since noon. I got it. Igot the whole thing day. Did Day only. Yeah, I canna lie. I did that when I was sick one time and I had to catchup on game of thrones and them in a week out a week to watchall of game of thrones before the season finale, series finale. Dude,it looks like it's going to rain here right now. That's how fucking grayishit looks. And it's all it's all smoke. That shit was coming throughhere too until this morning and then the rain came and brought it to theground. Oh yeah, that's dude. If we had rain to it'd bewashing out the whole and yeah, the more and more I think about it, I'm I'm eyeing the north central coast of Oregon. Wait, what's upthere? Don't move to the part where they got racist. Oh Dude,no, if you go outside of the city, you're going to deal withit. It's just the way it is. But no, I'm talking the coast, coast. If there's racists on the coast, so be it.I can't stop it. I can't stop racist from fucking coming there. Justdon't talk to him, don't give him any oxygen. Start hanging out.Well, start, okay, you know, okay, well, no, Iknow from me, Mr Mr Oklahoma Guy, that lives in. Probablymore racist that probably is out there than Oregon. Come on, buddy,come on for square person. Come on, Guy, come all rights. Ohmy God, it's the blacks.

It's a bit the blacks. NotGoing to happen, it's not. Not. Seriously, man, I'd been thinkingabout it. There's there's an area called seaside and I think it's about, want to say, about an hour west of Portland on the coast.I think that's about how long it takes to get from Portland to there.And I don't want. I don't want to be near Port I want tobe near Ish Portland, but not near Portland, if you know what Imean. Yeah, so you could like driving to see big shows or youknow whatever, big city kind of Shit museums and whatnot, and then goback home. Got You what way? I fought. Portland was on thecoast, Bro. How are you going to move thirty miles? We Orlandinon the coast, man, it's on the fucking Columbia River. It's moreinland that you just probably are not aware of. I've been through there whenI was a baby. It's one thing I don't remember. I remember theinside of the Bronco. That's where I remember the inside the Bronco and havinglike a toy totem pole. We got some Indian reservation check the in onethousand nine hundred eighty eighty one. We we did a Evanigan trip with mycousins up the coast from my house up the fucking one hundred and one allthe way up to Washington and then caught a fairy and went over to VancouverIsland and did Vancouver and all that it too. So I do. Ido recall the amazing greenness of what that was, but at that time Iwas more into video games. So I'll be honest with you, man,Dude. When we were on that fucking fairy they had video games, asteroidsand space invader. Yeah, that makes sense. I believe that. Sowe were fucking playing the shit out of that and then as soon as wedocked it's like fuck now we gotta go, and then on the boat we tookit more time did. We took another fairy to a place north ofVancouver in an area that was just it...

...felt like you're in the woods,and what I recall won't because we put our Bronco on the ferry and wentsomewhere else like that. I think it was Vancouver. It's pretty, that'sall I remembers. Fucking hell, a tall trees and like Indian Shit andgreenery. So, okay, you used to be in the moving to soacalnow. What has caused your change of heart? Have you been just likemolding it over? But need to be out of the state? I thinkI think I need a different state, Dude. I think California. Themore and more I look at what's going on here, it's it's insane.It just it just doesn't make sense to me. Yeah, and I seewhy there's people moving out and reasons and whatnot, and then straight of chaos. Dude. I mean I just watch it from afar, like I cuzI every town I have I moved to, I followed there like local news stationright on my twitter feed. So I catch news from Bay area,Los Angeles, Street port whatever, Louisiana here, and I see that shitall the time, all your headlines. I'm like, well, it's justnot stationalized like crazy. That's what I think it is to do. That'swhy, oftentimes I'll look at that for about five minutes. I'm like itthat's enough of that, because it's just all sensational threats, right. Andyou know, the more and more you and I have had conversations and yousaid, okay, dude, you digested that negativity. Find me some positivestories of you know, out of that. And I've taken on your challenge manytimes and I went looking for positive stories and I'm like God, thesepositive stories are boring. Yeah, but they're I think the bottom line is, dude, we are addicted to chaos, and me, I think I amaddicted to a certain bit of chaos. Well, literally triggers. Think Ineed chaos in my life to an extent, triggers like you're adrenaline inthe way or your five white and if...

...it triggers your fight just enough,you angry enough to get on through the fucking day, because otherwise I don'teven want to deal with it. You know, right sometimes and new dude, you nailed it. Seriously, you fucking nailed it right there. That'spart of it, because the expression of anger is a couple notches in ourconsciousness above hopelessness. So any and I don't consider myself angry. I'm actuallya very happy go lucky guy when I talk to people in person. I'myeah, I'm so heavy. Actually, I get people laughing when they comein contact with me, just because I feel in my head kind of theway stern feels. Is I always wanted to make people smile or laugh,for sure, whenever they come in contact. Yeah, and and I agree.You're not an angry person, and I wouldn't say I am either,but I definitely have anger. Like you know, I get angry at totally, dude. I think that's the punk rock thing within both of us.And then I get mad at myself because I'm a grown up. After Iget angry, I get mad at myself for being angry something so stupid.Oh my God, I gotta Relax on that Shit. That was not evena big deal. Okay, because I say things. That's the problem.I'll fucking say some shit and I'll like get embarrassed. Fact I've gotten myselfand my kids in trouble for just opening my mouth sometimes. Oh I dude, I've been around you many a times where I'm like this, motherfucker open, just guys gonna get as cops. But I'm sure you've said the samething with me. You know, even though it's it doesn't get in politicalthing. It gets more into the I'm crossing barriers. I like crossing Barry, I feel like I'm at a bar with a chick when I'm with you. Sometimes I'm like, AH, she's going to get us into a fight, to get us into a fight it. Dude, anytime you've hung out withme, have I ever gotten us into fights? No, but you, you fucking wing man for Josh, who almost does that. motherfucker.He would not let go of that transperson and bar that one time. Afterthat I'm like, I'm maybe settled down on drinking cider with Josh. Ohmy God, no offense, Josh,...

I'm just playing it. That wasfunny, Dude. No, that Dad, know, that's that's actually great tobring that shit up just because I he was so on it. Well, I know, I know a dude with tits. Yeah, Oh,there other quits. I'm like what our chick with a decks like, dude, great, okay, let's start to think of that old fucking I didn'tknow there was a badge of honor to know someone like that. Well,that's the thing that a lot of times. I've done it before in the pasttwo if I'm trying to fit in with a new group of people ora new idea I'll kind of throw out. I'll just blatantly say, hey,I have the same experience and I'll pitch whatever it was I thought itwas and it last flat. It lands flat. They're like, nope,that's not what we're here for, but it happened. It's it happened,Dude. One time at live nation, big ass round table twelve feet acrosseasily, and there was one like ten of US sitting around it. Rightright across from me was the fucking CEO and all the planning, all theheads of all the venues and shit of Li nation at that time. Yeah, and we're planning on some fucking idea, right, and I'm high as fuck, and then I throw the idea out there and Lee, the CEOjust looks at me, embraced it. He know. He looks at megoes, are you from another fucking planet? You're like yeah, no fucking itwas funny too, because there was another company called another planet, buthe didn't mean it in that sense, but oh dude, wow, Ididn't even make that connection. That's awesome. He didn't either. He just thoughtI was a space case for proposing something so outrageous. Was that?was that fucking was it banny off par and off? Whatever the fuck iswhat is it? Oh, you're thinking of Rapino. No, this wasLee Smith. He was president here and in the city. No, notRapino, the guy that split off from live nation and created another planet.Oh yeah, Perlaf Dude, perlaf right,...

Greig Purlaf Yep, yeah, okay. What was it him? Oh No, no, not at all. It was his competitor. It was the guy that books for live nation. Okay, so, in other words, another planet already started around this time. For sure. Yeah, we had all we're computer for sure.In fact, I think they had taken over the Warfield by this point.God, you know, it's a shame about the warfield. When they tookover the Warfield, so in the back along the hallway, they had thesewalls by the dressing room that we're been fucking littered with people's autographs for likethirty years. I've seen it, dude, writing down there. So, HolyShit, another planet took it over, destroyed it, HMM, took itall out, destroyed it all. So we had what do you mean? took it they didn't paint over it. They just like just mantlu through inthe trash. Yeah, because they remodeled that area. So they justgarbage to them. But we had fortunately took some high res pictures and turneda lot of them into tshirts. But so you're telling me that that fuckingautograph wall right there, that they remove that cement? They did nothing.I dude, that's got to be if another planet took over the Warfield oranother company, because I don't think it's another planet. Do I think it'sAeg because another planet alant the plants across the bay? I don't know.Well, this was fifteen years ago, so don't know. Wow, okay, now you're okay, because that now you can play. It lost menow. I don't think another planet was even started. It didn't start tillafter the whole live nation. Just absorb Bill Graham as Bill Graham and thenPearlf just goes. Fuck you, I'm creating my Bill Graham. Remember theycalled it SFX for a while. There's a that was that was like Earth. That was late, late, s early, right, Yep, andthen it went to clear channel and nobody...

...liked the name. Cleared just doingmy store around that time. I didn't keep up with it. Yeah,even though, yeah, clear just advertised on radio. Nobody like, nobodylike the name clear channel because we're all like, AH, those are thoseChristian fuckers out of Houston. So that's everybody in California and music was theright dude. Claire Channels always spend, just like the fucking Christian supported monetarycommunications company that took over the whole entire like shed industry. Yeah, well, hands with it ry. Remember the band a bunch of songs during theGulf War, like twenty songs, Twenty Band Hell, yeah, I do. Yeah, and then so, yeah, their plan was since they had ownedbillboards across America and radio stations, they thought that hey, if weown the concert venues to will own everything. Well, the problem was nobody inthe music industry in Los Angeles liked anybody. They're right. So theyeventually had to just split it off and call it something else. Thank Godfor La fucking being who la is at that at that time. Yeah,yeah, you know what? I've noticed that. Finally, I guess it'sjust been leaking over slowly, but Nashville's the center of the music industry now. Not Los Angeles. I know. I'd like to know. I'm hearingthat. I'm hearing that from quite a few podcasts I listened to when theyinterview some of these musicians and they all say the same thing. Yeah,gotta go, Dude, Nashville right now is the shit to to like bein and a and the more mare I keep hearing that. I'm like God, I want to go to Nashville just to yeah, me do it isfuck, yeah, I probably stout a trip and everything. I'm like,yeah, well, is there? Is? That would be a place. AndI Angie, I think, used to live there for a bit too, so she was telling me some good spots to go to and not togo to. So why didn't she stay? Lost Her job, she was workingfor a record label there, okay, and then then she just went toSan Francisco after that. But yeah, so she wait a minute, shewent from Nashville The San Francisco to...

Oklahoma. Well, she started inOklahoma. That's where she's from, right. So then to go and get intomusic, she went to Nashville and then from and then to San Franciscoand then back to Oklahoma, right, exactly. Gotcha. So she gotshe got basically all the fucking experience and schooling and then she just like fuck, I'm gonna just bring this back to Oklahoma where I'm from. That's cool. Yeah, yeah, for sure, for you can respect that. She'sa good hustler. That makes that basically means that she a written her originalgame plan when she was living there. was like I'm going to go learnhow to fucking do this shit and bring it to this country. Are Bringit to this area. I don't know what plans I've never asked her aboutthat because maybe she just wanted to leave forever or something, or she losther way. Could be the way. Yeah, I don't want to speculatebecause she's my friend, but yeah, I don't know. That's not Iget that. Well, bring it on, we're okay, we're okay. We'retalking about it. For sure. Yes, she's cool too. I'mjust speculating. I'm just speculating. I'm speculating, which I'm just who elsewould I think on this topic? Who else was on that? Eddie Murphy, Johnny Carson, you were just watching? Let's see here. Nobody remember,because I think the one I saw had ellen degeneres. That sounds funnywith they on the seats together. I don't know, do because as soonas I watched the first segment of the Eddie Murphy thing, you and Icommunicated by the text and I bailed. Got Got you. I didn't Ididn't see, because I'm starting to think the one I saw was Eddie Murphyand George Carlin and it was trippy. Oh Yeah, that would be funto watch because they it was like Eddie was coming up in the superstar Eddie, right, Shiny Black Eddie, the...

...big gold and all that. Right, the eighty three, eighty four, right, yeah, and Carlin wasat his peak, almost to me, you know what I mean. Butvery, very well, he was known to influence all those guys. Yeah, chemistry was wild, good stuff made. So there. I text you aboutthat thing about George Carlin license his bits to the countries. God,yeah, yeah, yeah, you did. I think it was about like amonth or so ago. Yeah, I don't know if we told theaudience it. That's pretty interesting. They just he licens his bits, likethe dirty words, to Comedians in other countries all the way around the world. So nowadays you couldn't really do that, but back in the S we didn'thave global telecommunications the way we do now. So nobody in America knewthat. If you went over to I think it was Sweden, there's twoSwedish guys that did exactly the same bit with permission and even got recorded andput on radio and that sort of stuff. And and George just got paid backin royalties. Yeah, so I'm like, oh, that's a fuckinggenius. Moves like I got bitch there. Like songs. Why not sell themto other countries? And back then, like you know, nobody heard ofthere was no cross Trans Atlantic communication that way. Right, right,right, yeah, there was no Internet. Yeah, yeah, that's one thinga lot of people should realize if they have no idea what life waslike before the Internet. Yeah, before the Internet it took a while toget information and it was an instant your brains hadn't worked harder. Yes,that's one thing I missed, dude. And now back to the wall.
