Speaker 2 (01:01):
That's quite the week. You know.

Speaker 3 (01:02):
Every time I recap, I'm like Dan. We had a
lot happen and like for us.

Speaker 1 (01:06):
I think we just take it each day at a time.

Speaker 3 (01:07):
Yeah, but then when I recap them, I'm like, there's
a lot happening.

Speaker 1 (01:10):
Okay, Mike, how's life. What's been going on with you lately?

Speaker 2 (01:14):
Life is good. I'm trying to be less stressed. I've
been focused in therapy of like finding ways for me
to relax a little bit and enjoy life. So speaking
of the weekend, the weekend has now kind of become
my time that I've kind of gained back. So it's
just kind of nice to in the last I would

say maybe a month or so that I really allowed
myself to break away from work and just enjoy life.
I think I was in a period of my life
where I kept like waiting for a life to happen
and thinking like, oh, once I get to this point,
I can enjoy things. And then I've kind of realized, like,
life is happening now. You should be enjoying and taking
time to do things you enjoy, to relax and to

not do anything if that's what you feel like doing,
like now, like I can't wait for it. I think
it's like whenever a new year starts, I'm thinking, Okay,
I'm waiting for the spring, but that's what things realists
are happening. Spring comes, I'm waiting for summer. Summer comes,
I'm waiting for fall, like that's where all the life
things happen. But I've never just enjoyed the moment of
where i am.

Speaker 1 (02:17):
Not living in the present moment.

Speaker 2 (02:19):
Yeah, I'm always like waiting and anticipating something, usually anticipating
something bad because I struggle with anxiety a lot, and
I'm always thinking of all the bad things that are
going to happen. I try to prepare for that, and
I never just allow myself to Okay, I'm here now,
it's the weekend. I want to sit back and enjoy something.
I want to read something, spend the time with my wife,
and do things now that are just like what I

should be doing.

Speaker 3 (02:41):
How does that feel, that transition, like, now that you
are finally doing it, are you feeling more like I
can make this happen or are you still a little
bit anxious.

Speaker 1 (02:52):
About that process.

Speaker 2 (02:54):
I think my anxiety levels have gone down a lot,
I think just overall, even like my wife has noticed that,
I've been a little bit more calm, and I've done
little things like turning off my email notifications on the
weekend or even sometimes like during the week, when there's
a set time, Like I live and die by my phone,
I'm always looking at it. I get an email and
I immediately have to clear that off and do something

that is how I am so I've become. That's kind
of one thing I've done has been more intentional of
at times turning it off and having like a set
time of Okay, now I'm going to sit down and
go back dive into this instead of just letting me
have these constant little stressors hitting me throughout the day.
I sit down at a time designated to that, and
then that's when I'm going to focus on that. I
think that's something I learned in therapy of like having

all like the stress that I usually have an anxieties,
give yourself that time to deal with it, figure out
what is ruining your day or what is keeping you
from doing what you want to do, do it in
that time, and then move on.

Speaker 1 (03:51):
Yeah, that's super important.

Speaker 3 (03:53):
This is a huge, I feel like step for you
based on just all the things you've talked to me about.

Speaker 1 (03:58):
This is huge.

Speaker 2 (03:59):
Yeah, it feels a lot better. It's hard though, because
I think going to therapy, I've always wanted to have
like this moment where I'm like cured. Like I thought
there was like a medicine. If you do it, you
take it.

Speaker 1 (04:10):
Yeah, No, that's not how That's not how adult life works.

Speaker 2 (04:12):
I also thought it was like all you had to
do was go to therapy and not do anything else
outside of it. You still learn tools in that that
you have to implicate into your life. So I think
that's where I struggled a little bit. I just could
because I had all these things going on, and I
was like, Okay, I consider apart this time for therapy
and then go back to doing everything else. But you
have to take It's like homework. You have to go

to school and then do the homework in order for
it to really work.

Speaker 3 (04:36):
So and homework that you have to do throughout the
rest of your life. It's not just after therapy or
the weekend after. It's throughout the remainder of your time
on earth.

Speaker 2 (04:45):
Yeah, Like even if you say you stop going to therapy,
you still have to use the tools that you've learned,
like throughout your life. Like you'd be like, Okay, I
can't really do this anymore, but I can still take
everything I learned that can't go away. Yeah, kind of
like the same way approach to whenever I lost all
my weight of like exercising, Like if you just go
to the gym once and expect to get healthy, that's

not really.

Speaker 1 (05:06):
Good to work, No, but you know that'd be really cool.

Speaker 2 (05:09):
Yeah, Oh that would be amazing you do.

Speaker 1 (05:11):
That, like you just have to walk in Yeah yeah, yeah.

Speaker 2 (05:14):
I think because sometimes I would go to the gym
and be like, oh, just because I come here like
I'm good, But you also have to go there, put
the work in, do things that are going to help
you later. So it's showing up, yes, is important, but
it's also doing the work outside of it and making
sure you're kind of working all encompassing to help yourself
instead it just like here's this part of it.

Speaker 1 (05:34):
Yeah, dang, well that was I started us off strong.
My See.

Speaker 3 (05:39):
That's like a I feel like a big thing that's
happening in your life and you just came out in
guns blazon.

Speaker 2 (05:44):
I think that's just how I've been feeling lately, especially
like with our job of I've become more I've kind
of learned how to structure everything better. So I don't
think that there will ever be that work life balance
it's perfect, because some weeks it just we have more work,
we have travel. It'll always kind of flare up. But
it's kind of learning to have like this internal thing

of like how to take that on and be able
to deal with it instead of it just being like
so draining on me all the time.

Speaker 3 (06:12):
Yeah, you know, I can relate to that. I feel
like I've really become in a good place. And maybe
it's just this time period of our lives. Maybe they're
you know, maybe the moon is perfectly lined.

Speaker 1 (06:21):
I don't know, but I feel that way.

Speaker 3 (06:23):
I've really tried in the last year or so to
just put work work is work, and.

Speaker 1 (06:29):
I get to have a life.

Speaker 3 (06:30):
I get to do and be somebody else outside of
my job and my life here.

Speaker 1 (06:36):
And that's hard. It's harder than.

Speaker 2 (06:38):
You really hard for me.

Speaker 1 (06:39):

Speaker 2 (06:40):
I think for me, it's been telling myself, is this
gonna matter in like another month? Yeah, and in six
months or in a year, like is this really gonna
matter right now? Like I'm always going to do my
job to my best the best of my ability, but
sometimes it's just like, is this thing really worth like
crushing myself over right now, and if it's not, then okay,
I'll get to it later or maybe I screw it up.

Speaker 1 (07:03):
I could not agree more.

Speaker 3 (07:04):
Is it?

Speaker 1 (07:05):
Like I like to think, when I.

Speaker 3 (07:06):
Am laying in whatever sweet little ending of my life,
I have what's actually going to matter. And when I
look at that, it's very little things that that are
on that list that exist, you know what I mean,
And they're they're not me making sure a tweet gots
it out a perfect amount of time exactly.

Speaker 1 (07:26):
Yeah, So I feel like, well, I'm really happy for it.

Speaker 2 (07:28):
And it's also led to me sleeping better, which was
like the root of where I really well the first
time I went to go see a doctor because I
was so like just not sleeping, not resting well, and
I'm I take sleep medication. But as of late, I've
just been having better sleep that I find just changes
my overall mood. And also like when I go work out,

I have more energy. And it's weird how important sleep
truly is and how much it just like refreshes and
recharges your body.

Speaker 1 (07:57):
Oh yeah, it's it's literally our battery. If we had
a bad like a phone. Sleep is our battery.

Speaker 2 (08:02):
It's like a magical process.

Speaker 1 (08:04):
Mm hmm. Yeah.

Speaker 3 (08:05):
Okay, well, Mike des I mean you're you have a
little bit of a kind of glow about you. But
it's not like you know, when people like her start
dating a woman's pregnant or whatever.

Speaker 1 (08:15):
It's not that kind of glow.

Speaker 3 (08:16):
But you do feel like just you feel calm. You
don't feel like you have the weight of the world
on your shoulders.

Speaker 2 (08:21):
Yeah. I think it's allowed me to be a little
bit less high strung, which I found, Like, I don't
think most people I meet would take that away from me.
Most people think I'm a pretty chill, calm guy, but
inside I'm like freaking going crazy inside my head.

Speaker 3 (08:36):
It's like your inside and out character is which one.

Speaker 2 (08:43):
Well from the new movie probably anxiety.

Speaker 1 (08:45):

Speaker 3 (08:46):
I was like, well, I think of like how when
I describe my internal feelings, like mine is this little
butterfly that keeps wanting to come out in all different ways.
Maybe yours is like a ping pong and it's just
hitting all the different walls.

Speaker 2 (08:58):
Oh, you should meet inside out like just in or
you met the movie. Because I was thinking of the
emotions in the movie.

Speaker 1 (09:04):
I didn't really articulate that very well.

Speaker 3 (09:05):
But I was thinking inside out of the movie, but
like your own version, like what that kind of looks like.

Speaker 2 (09:10):
I always attribute myself to being like a cat that's
not using, not used to being around people. Yeah, whenever
you go to somebody's house and they have a cat,
they're not used to being around people, and they kind
of like see everybody, see everybody freak out and they
like run away. Like that is me internally. I like it.

Speaker 1 (09:25):
That's that's a better inside out character.

Speaker 3 (09:27):
Okay, well I have I have two stories from our
iHeart Country festival that I want to share with you
people with that they're like these behind the scenes one.
So one of them I gotta take a pre show
shot with Old Dominion. That was exciting for me, mostly
because I've had a tequila shot in a long time.

Speaker 2 (09:42):
Yeah, I can't remember. I think the last time I
had one. We went out to dinner on vacation somewhere,
maybe it was New York and they give you a
free tequila shot and I don't drink tequila, but they
were like, like that's free.

Speaker 1 (09:55):
Say, you can't turn down free free shots.

Speaker 2 (09:56):
But it was like really warm and not great, but
I was still fun.

Speaker 3 (09:59):
It was Yeah, it's part of the experience and getting
something for free. But no, I went in there and
it was funny. Apparently they do this every time before
every show when they before they ever get on stage,
they take a pre show tequila shot together. It's like
their way of coming together before the show starts.

Speaker 1 (10:14):
I was like, dang, I'm not part of Old Dominion.

Speaker 3 (10:16):
This feels cool, but there was like fifty other people
in there stage.

Speaker 2 (10:20):
Still did it with Old Dominions.

Speaker 1 (10:21):
Yeah, it was cool.

Speaker 3 (10:22):
And then Matt Ramsey and I sat there and talked
about dogs for like twenty minutes and his guy was like, dude,
we gotta go, and I'm like sorry talking about animals.

Speaker 2 (10:31):
Yeah, Matt Ramsey's a really nice guy. Speaking of like
vacation and Old Dominion. One time we were in Lake Tahoe,
me and my wife. Just randomly, I go into the
bathroom at the restaurant and Matt Ramsey is in there
and he's like, Hey, what's up, dude, Like what are
you doing here? It's like, what are you doing here?

Speaker 1 (10:47):
So random, but they're super nice guys, so that's funny.
Did you ever find out why they were there?

Speaker 3 (10:51):

Speaker 2 (10:51):
They had a show or they had to show the
night before, got it, and then they stayed for an
extra night and they just happened to be at the
same restaurant during the same time we had show vacation
and they were out there too. But of all the people, that.

Speaker 1 (11:03):
Are all the places in the world that we're.

Speaker 2 (11:05):
Both there at that restaurant in the bathroom.

Speaker 3 (11:07):
It's always funny the little isn't that called like serendipity or.

Speaker 2 (11:10):
Something is meant to happen?

Speaker 1 (11:11):
Yeah? Is that the right word? So that was really cool,
like behind the scenes moment.

Speaker 3 (11:17):
And then I got to meet the actor who you
may know a Debt Annabelle.

Speaker 2 (11:23):
Have you heard that name from Supergirl?

Speaker 3 (11:26):
Yeah, she's she's the villain Rain and Supergirl and I
loved her in that. She's also in a movie called
You Again, which I don't know if you've seen with
Kristen Bell and Jane.

Speaker 1 (11:36):
I think her name is What's.

Speaker 3 (11:37):
The What's the Who is the lady in Freaky Friday?

Speaker 1 (11:39):
The Older Lady?

Speaker 2 (11:41):
Uh? Her name is Escape Jamie Lee Curtis.

Speaker 1 (11:44):
Yes, thank you, sorry a new start with a Jay.

Speaker 2 (11:46):
Well you had me on, Jamie Lee Curtis.

Speaker 1 (11:49):
I know I wanted to say Jane fond Of but
that I.

Speaker 2 (11:51):
Know, that's the only name that came to my head
in that moment.

Speaker 1 (11:53):
Yeah, also also a great movie.

Speaker 3 (11:55):
But she Yeah, she was the actor and I totally
geeked out like nobody else. So people knew her because
she's also on Walker, I guess on CW, which I
haven't started watching yet. But I saw her and I
was like, oh my god, why do I know her?
I saw her multiple times. She was in the back
like green room where we were, and I just kept
kind of looking at her, like why do I know you?

And then finally finally it took me. Gosh, Mike. I
mean we were towards the end of the night when
I finally figured it out and I stopped her when
she came back, and I was like, I'm so sorry
to do this, but like I loved you and Supergirl.
You were so amazing, and she when we sat there
and geeked out about Supergirl for like ten minutes, Oh.

Speaker 2 (12:32):
I thought, you're go tylor What do I know you
from what that you gave up?

Speaker 1 (12:36):
I thought about that.

Speaker 3 (12:37):
I did think it because I was doing so frustrated
with myself because you can't like, take a picture of
somebody and like Google that.

Speaker 2 (12:43):
Can you You can? Yeah, actually, well that'd be creepy
if I didn't take a picture of her and then
throw it into Google and it would show you.

Speaker 1 (12:50):
That's probably true. That's probably true. But I did. I
did not, so I didn't get to that point. I
thought about it though.

Speaker 3 (12:56):
If I couldn't remember, I was going to because I
knew she was actress and I just couldn't remember what
she was in. But then when I finally realized it
because Supergirl is one of my favorite like superhero TV shows,
just the women empowerment side of it and female superhero
and I like Gator, who is one of our kind
of big wigs, sat there and he's like, I feel
like I just watched a superhero podcast. Like I was

sitting there geeking out the whole time. He's like, but
you did great.

Speaker 1 (13:21):
He was like, you weren't like overboard. I was like,
are you sure? Because I kind of felt like it was.
And then we took cute pictures together.

Speaker 2 (13:26):
She was really nice, so great, and we got into
all the CW superhero shows.

Speaker 1 (13:34):
I dove in.

Speaker 3 (13:34):
I went like full body jump in the pool on
those I did all of them.

Speaker 2 (13:39):
I did watch the Flash finale just because I loved
the finale, the series finale to anything. So I had
never seen an episode of that show, but I was like, Oh,
the finale's coming on. I want to see how they
in this whole thing. Didn't really know what's going on.

Speaker 1 (13:50):
You would have had to watch a lot to know
what was happening. Not finale, because that was the finale
of eight.

Speaker 2 (13:56):
Seasons was on forever.

Speaker 3 (13:57):
Yeah, and did you ever watch the finale of Air
Arrow was another.

Speaker 1 (14:01):
One that was long.

Speaker 2 (14:01):
Didn't see that one?

Speaker 3 (14:02):
Okay, So yeah, you've got aero, Flash, Supergirl, Legends of
Tomorrow were the ones that I think I watched, and yeah,
I went hard on all of them. Oh little that's
where I have my little nerdy and so yeah, that's
what's going on in my life right now. Also, I'm
going to fort Worth. I'll be in fort Worth. Well,
this podcast will have aired after I'd been in there.

I get sent for like twenty four hours to go
to fort Worth to go to a Warren's Eyders show
for Wild Turkey.

Speaker 2 (14:28):
And you've never been in to fort Worth?

Speaker 1 (14:29):
Never been to Fort Worth? Have you been?

Speaker 2 (14:31):
Yeah? I mean I was from. I'm from DFW, which
is Dallas Forworth, I got it. So fort Worth was
like west of where I grew up in Walksahatchie, but
of between Dallas and Fort Worth. I would hardly go
to fort Worth just because Dallas was so much closer,
and like in my head, fort Worth is kind of
the rival of Dallas, even though it's one big metroplex,

but like they have the stockyard there. The only time
I really remember going as a kid have an amazing
zoo and Fort Worth that is all you remember from that.
We would go like we're going to the Dallas. We're
going to Fort Worth, all right, that's the good zoo.

Speaker 1 (15:04):
Dang, they had the good zoo over Dallas.

Speaker 2 (15:06):
Yeah, And then I would go to a lot of
shows there because a lot of the bands that I
liked would always play this theater in Fort Worth, So
that would really be the.

Speaker 1 (15:14):
Not Billy Bob's, because Billy Bobs is where we're going.
I guess I've.

Speaker 2 (15:17):
Still never been to Billy Bob's. But it was called
the Rigidly Theater. I think they I think it's still open.

Speaker 3 (15:22):
Okay, like old school kind of theater, like a smaller theater.

Speaker 2 (15:26):
Yeah, like a smaller theater.

Speaker 1 (15:28):
Okay, so you have no food recommenitions from me or anything.

Speaker 2 (15:31):
Not really, But it's like the more Texas side of
the DFW, like Dallas is a little more fancy ritzy,
and then you find the real cowboys in Fort Worth.

Speaker 1 (15:42):
Well, dang, okay, real cowboys.

Speaker 3 (15:45):
I will be I'll be flying into Dallas and ubering
out to Fort Worth when my friends lives out there.
But you have never been, and now I'm now I'm
a little confused. No, I want to expect from cowboys
and big Texas, but.

Speaker 1 (15:58):
I like it. Oh so yeah, that's what's going on
with me. Anything else you want to share before we take.

Speaker 2 (16:04):
A little break, No, I just want to know how
Fortworth goes for you.

Speaker 1 (16:07):
You're smiling like you know something that I don't know.

Speaker 2 (16:09):
I went to. I guess the last time I was
there is when we went for too much access to TCU?

Speaker 1 (16:14):
Is that also where it is?

Speaker 3 (16:16):
Freaking cities in Texas that like are big, and I
just they kind of all message together for me.

Speaker 1 (16:22):
Yeah, I know, that's weird.

Speaker 2 (16:23):
Texta is just so huge. You could drive eight hours
and still be in the state.

Speaker 1 (16:26):
Yeah, And I think I know Austin so well because
we've gone there a lot. But like fort Worth, Dallas,
what's the other ones.

Speaker 2 (16:33):
They all blend together, Antonio Houston, Oh my gosh.

Speaker 1 (16:36):
Yeah, genuinely think they're all the same. I don't think
I've ever been to any of those, so I genuinely
think they're all the same. That doesn't help me.

Speaker 3 (16:44):
But you're smiling like I don't know something about fort Worth.
You're saying, I can't wait to see how it goes.
Makes me think something's gonna happen.

Speaker 2 (16:50):
Yeah. I just never really hear people just going specifically
to fort Worth, But I guess because of the venue.

Speaker 3 (16:56):
Yeah, the venue, Billy Bob's and Warren Zyders and well,
well Turkey, I mean paying me So that's pretty cool.

Speaker 2 (17:01):
I'd go to Fowards for that, right.

Speaker 3 (17:03):
So, and I have heard great things about the Stockyards
and Billy Bob's Billy Bops.

Speaker 2 (17:08):
Right, yeah, I mean it's like a historic venue.

Speaker 1 (17:10):
A people play there, and it's Warren Zeider's. He's fun
to watch. Right, You're giving me someone.

Speaker 2 (17:16):
I've never seen him.

Speaker 1 (17:17):
All right, quick break, Mike's for giving me out.

Speaker 3 (17:24):
I said we were going to talk about this if
you happen to come from listener Q and A and
now you're listening to this for you're listening to this first,
just know this is where it came from.

Speaker 1 (17:33):
Unfrosted on Netflix.

Speaker 2 (17:36):
Yeah, I wish I could unwatch it.

Speaker 1 (17:37):
WTF was my question.

Speaker 2 (17:41):
I don't know how this movie got made or how
Jerry Seinfelt thought it was fuddy I Mike.

Speaker 3 (17:47):
When I got down watching it, and I should say
got done watching it, I fell asleep towards the end
because I gave up.

Speaker 1 (17:51):
I was like, I have no idea what's happening?

Speaker 3 (17:54):
Not like no idea what's happening in the movie, just
like genuinely, why is this on my TV screen? I
thought I just had like really bad humor, And I
was like, maybe I just don't get it.

Speaker 2 (18:04):
Is it me? No, I think this is a movie
that it's They think it's funny, and maybe on paper
it was funny, but it felt like a bad Nickelodeon
TV show.

Speaker 3 (18:18):
Oh it's just it was so weird on so many
it wasn't even like And it makes me feel better
that you feel that way, because sometimes you see things
differently than the way that I would see them. So
I genuinely was like, oh dang, I feel like I
don't know what's happening.

Speaker 2 (18:32):
Because I think what it's trying to be is like
a parody of all the brand movies that have come
out recently, like Air was the Nike story, yeah, Michael,
or the Air Jordan story made the BlackBerry movie last year,
the Barbie movie. So it was kind of trying to
find something like what could we make a funny, not
real biopic about for a product, and then we chose
pop Darts, which I.

Speaker 3 (18:52):
Think that the idea of it is funny, like an
SNL sketch, maybe a whole movie, no like, And it
kept going and the thing there was so many massive
stars in it.

Speaker 2 (19:05):
Yeah. So my theory is Jerry Seinfeld directed this movie,
the first movie's ever directed. He I just hate that
he thinks he's like the authority on what is funny
he does, and I don't think he's funny like Seinfeld
back in you know, I never really got into Seinfeld.

Speaker 1 (19:20):
No, you guys maybe watch it and I hated it.

Speaker 2 (19:21):
You No, Like, I just like, I get on paper
why it's funny, why people would find it funny. But
I think if he did that TV show now it
wouldn't be as successful. So and then when it comes
to his stand up, I've never been a fan of
his stand up. I don't find him that funny. And
his real big thing in comedy is like finding very
mundane things and making fun of him and these odd observations.

I just never found it funny. So for him to
be like this authority on like telling even like what
kind of people are funny and to have like the
seal of approval is just weird. And I think a
lot of people who are in the movie probably said
yes because they wanted to do a project with Jerry Seinfeld. Yeah,
so he could get anybody because every like I don't know,
six seven minutes, there's another cameo.

Speaker 3 (20:03):
Seriously, there were so many big stars on that name,
and but not only that, Like has Jerry Seinfeld even
put out anything recently besides this?

Speaker 2 (20:11):
I mean he's still tours, but I mean as far
as a.

Speaker 3 (20:14):
Movie or TV show, the b movie okay, Yeah, and
he wasn't even like physically and that animated character.

Speaker 2 (20:20):
And when it comes to movies, he's not really an actor.

Speaker 3 (20:25):
Yeah, it was I like, my kind I thought I
was tripping a little bit like I genuinely was trying
to understand what was going on on my TV screen.

Speaker 2 (20:34):
Yeah. I just felt like such a waste of time. Yeah,
and a waste of all these actors and stars.

Speaker 3 (20:39):
And I love parodies, and I like comedy movies and stuff,
and it just like.

Speaker 2 (20:44):
Parodies are hard to make funny for an entire movie.
There hasn't been a great parody movie, probably sends of
the scary movies from the two thousands.

Speaker 3 (20:52):
I feel like they could have done a comedy movie
with like the undertone of some parody and that would
have gone over better. It felt like, to your point
that it was very the whole thing was a parody,
like an SNL skit.

Speaker 2 (21:04):
Yeah, just a really poorly done one.

Speaker 1 (21:06):
Oh my gosh.

Speaker 2 (21:07):

Speaker 3 (21:07):
Okay, Well, I just want to share thoughts because I'm
not kidding. Like Mike, I was like, did I take drugs?
And I just don't remember it.

Speaker 2 (21:14):
If you probably took drugs, you would have found the
movie more funny.

Speaker 1 (21:17):
Probably, Probably That's what it made me feel like. I
was like, am I like what am I missing?

Speaker 3 (21:22):
Because there was so many stars in it, and I like,
Melissa McCarthy is hilarious to me.

Speaker 2 (21:27):
Yeah, I think whenever you have that many stars in
a movie, it's kind of a sign that a movie
isn't going to be good. Whenever they're just like, look
at who is all in this movie, that usually means
it's not very good because they just found a bunch
of stars with their name on the poster, and they
sell that more than they sell the actual product. Because
I can't believe you go to a screening or the
premiere for that and think, man, that's a good movie.

I can't see anybody who would sign off on that
one just because Seinfeld is on the name.

Speaker 1 (21:53):
That's so true. I wonder what it has on Rotten Tomatoes.

Speaker 2 (21:55):
I would assume, oh, probably, by the look of your face,
it probably has higher than we're thinking. So I'm gonna
say forty nine percent.

Speaker 1 (22:04):
I mean higher than it definitely should be. It's not
that quite high.

Speaker 3 (22:07):
It's thirty nine percent from critics, Okay, fifty five percent.

Speaker 1 (22:10):
From the audience.

Speaker 2 (22:11):
Wow, really sorry?

Speaker 1 (22:12):
Fifty seven Yeah, I.

Speaker 2 (22:14):
Would feel it'd be much lower than that.

Speaker 1 (22:16):
I'm shocked.

Speaker 2 (22:17):
It feels more like in the teens for me.

Speaker 1 (22:19):
Oh yeah, like, I'm not kidding. It should be in
the zeros.

Speaker 2 (22:22):
I've only seen one other person who enjoyed it. After
I posted about it, I actually liked it. I say, well, dang,
good for you.

Speaker 1 (22:30):
What was there reason for laking it?

Speaker 2 (22:32):
I guess they just found it funny.

Speaker 1 (22:35):
Top critics said, well, that person gave a point five.

Speaker 2 (22:39):
Yeah, this is what I want. Lend me on rot Tomatoes.
I'd bring down that.

Speaker 3 (22:42):
Score, you would, But these top critics didn't like it either.
It is a what do you call it when it
fails on Rotten Tomatoes?

Speaker 2 (22:49):
A splat splat?

Speaker 1 (22:50):
Yeah, it's full splat, but it should be more.

Speaker 2 (22:53):
If that movie would have come out in theaters and
not straight on Netflix, it would have bombed terrible.

Speaker 3 (22:57):
Oh my gosh, you would have seen the first round
of reviews came in and nobody else would.

Speaker 1 (23:01):
Have gone to see it.

Speaker 2 (23:02):
And that Those are the type of movies that I
hate right now because they are ruining movies for everybody
because like, oh there's a new movie on Netflix. You
see it and it's terrible. It makes you not want
to go watch any other movie.

Speaker 1 (23:12):
No, I still will, I still will I that one.
I'm like, that is just an isolated incident. All right,
what is your met gala?

Speaker 3 (23:20):
I was thinking about this because every year, like there's
so many big events, but like the Met Gala happens,
and people freak out over the Met Galla.

Speaker 1 (23:28):
I don't quite understand. It is fine, it's cool.

Speaker 2 (23:31):
I think it's cool.

Speaker 1 (23:32):
It's good to see the content.

Speaker 2 (23:33):
It's like Halloween for rich people.

Speaker 1 (23:35):
It really is.

Speaker 3 (23:36):
Did you know it's seventy five thousand dollars for a ticket?

Speaker 1 (23:39):
I did not know that one person to go to
the Met Gala.

Speaker 2 (23:42):
Have you ever been to the Met?

Speaker 1 (23:43):
I haven't.

Speaker 2 (23:44):
It's really cool, is it. I kind of forget that
it happens at the same place because they make it
look completely different where everybody enters in and the steps
and everything. The actual Met is really cool. If you
ever go to New York at a museum, yeah, it's
like a giant museum.

Speaker 1 (23:57):

Speaker 3 (23:57):
I did see Ariana Grande perform there. That was like
a hidden video.

Speaker 1 (24:02):
I guess that wasn't supposed to be taking because they're
not supposed to have phones in there.

Speaker 2 (24:05):

Speaker 3 (24:06):
Interesting And apparently they also have performances at the metgalaha
and Ariana Grande perform Yeah it's super secret. Yeah wild
so okay, so maybe the Met Gala is your Megala.

Speaker 1 (24:17):
Is there anything I would like to.

Speaker 2 (24:18):
Go to the Mega? I would because it's also like
you've achieved a level of fame where you're cool enough
to be invited, like to actually be a part of
it and go inside. I bet it's probably not as
cool as we all think because any of those events,
once you actually go there, it's like, eh, this this
is fine, but it's.

Speaker 1 (24:37):
Seventy five thousand dollars insane.

Speaker 2 (24:40):
Yeah, so I would that would be cool just because
that means you made it. And also I would get
real into the fashion side of it. I guess for
the most part, the guys were pretty standard, like tuxedos
you could wear to anything. Yeah, some people step it
up a notch, and I think you have to for
someone that you have to go full Hunger Games capital style.

Speaker 1 (24:57):
Oh my god.

Speaker 3 (24:58):
Yeah, everybody on TikTok's was comparedives Hunger Games.

Speaker 1 (25:00):
Yeah, hilarious. All in everybody's comments.

Speaker 3 (25:03):
Anybody who posted from the met gala is like, this
is the Hunger Games.

Speaker 1 (25:06):

Speaker 2 (25:07):
So yeah, I think I would also enjoy that aspect
of it, of like finding a really cool designer to
make something up that just looks Met gala ish.

Speaker 1 (25:15):
Yeah, that's so true.

Speaker 3 (25:17):
Listen, if I didn't have to pay seventy five thousand
dollars a ticket, I would one thousand percent be there.
Like I would be all about the dressing up. I
would love to dress up every weekend, being on like
cool outfits and things that are like I don't have
to pay for whatever.

Speaker 1 (25:31):
Yeah, that'd be awesome. Yeah, but besides that, don't let
me that ticket.

Speaker 3 (25:35):
My like for me, the thing that I get so
crazy about kind of like how people go over to
the met gala is Comic Con.

Speaker 2 (25:42):
Oh yeah, that's another one.

Speaker 3 (25:43):
I love seeing the content from Comic Con and someday
I hope to attend it and like be there, experience
it and dress up as a superhero don't know which one,
but one of them, and like be a part of that.
That's my met gala, like.

Speaker 2 (25:56):
The OG San Diego or yr.

Speaker 1 (25:59):
OG going out to San Diego. Also because I've never
been to San Diego, yeah, I mean neither.

Speaker 3 (26:03):
And I feel like that'd be a cool experience. But
then like that the San Diego one.

Speaker 1 (26:07):
Is where all the cool superhero stuff happens.

Speaker 2 (26:09):
Yeah, that's where they announce all the movies and everything.

Speaker 1 (26:11):
Yeah, and then I get like truly geek out.

Speaker 3 (26:13):
In person, I'd be like one of all the people
dressed up like something happening. I don't know, that's just
my met gala. When that content comes out, it's like
these are the things happening, and I'm like, yeah, this
is awesome or they see like all it because like
the actors and actresses are what like fascinate me because
we don't interact with those very much, you know what
I mean, Like the artists stuff.

Speaker 1 (26:33):
I'm like, yeah, that's awesome, but that's because they always
come here.

Speaker 2 (26:35):
Yeah, it's normal anyway exactly.

Speaker 3 (26:37):
So like the comic Con, those superheroes, man, I'm like,
that's so cool.

Speaker 2 (26:42):
Because I think I would freak out even just people
cosplaying as the characters more so than seeing like the
actual people because that's like like screen accurate costumes. I
look just like them, oh.

Speaker 3 (26:54):
When they pay hundreds of dollars to make them look
like that too, Like and they they are all decked
out that you want to talk about how and those.

Speaker 2 (27:01):
People are celebrities in themselves because they're all like influencers
who like have tons of followers and they go to
comic on specifically if people want to see what they're
gonna costplay as.

Speaker 1 (27:10):
Yeah, see's so cool.

Speaker 3 (27:11):
It would be so much fun. That's my megala. Do
you have another one? I know you like the met gala?
Do you have another met gala?

Speaker 2 (27:18):
I mean mine's probably also like a comic comic also,
like just for the comics alone, like going to see
all those like really rare comics, being able to shop
because also like smaller people go there who have like startups,
and you can find a lot of cool stuff there too.
So I would also spend just like another day just shopping.

Speaker 1 (27:35):
Yeah, I'm with you. Okay, well I want to be
comic shopping. But we'll both be on at Comic Con
in San Diego.

Speaker 3 (27:42):
We're gonna take a quick break and we'll be right
back for a little bit more. All right, Mike, what
is your dang? I wish they weren't right moment recently,
And I'll tell you mine, and I'll give you something
to kind of think about. Ray Mundo was right, which
about out here myself say, you know, because he comes

in he brings a lot of crazy stuff on.

Speaker 1 (28:04):
He was right. He just missed it by a couple
of years. The freakin' cicadas.

Speaker 3 (28:11):
Yeah, I did not anticipate what a cicada takeover would
be like, Like he had shared.

Speaker 1 (28:19):
What was that like four years ago that he thought
it was happening.

Speaker 2 (28:22):
Maybe, Yeah, I had to be twenty twenty or twenty
twenty one.

Speaker 1 (28:25):
I think it's before COVID.

Speaker 3 (28:26):
Yeah, but they have taken over my backyard, Mike, I'm
so grossed out.

Speaker 2 (28:32):
I am.

Speaker 3 (28:32):
So there's there is bug carcasses all over my fences,
and they have these creepy crawley little red bugs that
like swarm them and then if you walk by them,
they all spread out and it's all over my fences.

Speaker 1 (28:46):
I can't do anything about it. They're just chilling. They've
like taken up rent in my backyard.

Speaker 3 (28:51):
And I am officially grossed out and unfortunate to say
that Raymond was right, just right, a little too early.

Speaker 1 (28:59):
So that's my that's my moment.

Speaker 2 (29:02):
Yeah, they're pretty I've only seen like a couple of
them all dead.

Speaker 3 (29:05):
Oh, and they are they are creepy, girly little creatures
and then they're loud and then they eat all the plants.

Speaker 1 (29:12):
And I am finally.

Speaker 3 (29:13):
Having a sweet flower bed garden that looks great, and
you know what's about to happen.

Speaker 1 (29:19):
It's I'm gonna die.

Speaker 2 (29:21):
So outside is acadas? Do you have a bug thing?

Speaker 3 (29:24):

Speaker 2 (29:24):
Bugs freak you out in general?

Speaker 1 (29:27):
Not normally.

Speaker 3 (29:28):
It's only when I'm for whatever reason, when I'm doing
like outside stuff, like I have these carbon I have
a weird situation that's happening in my backyard, and I
wish it was like animals, because if you bring me
like possums and armadillos and foxes, I'll be like, yeah,
you can stay. But for whatever reason, there's a bug
situation happening. I've had a carpenter bee that's been harassing

me every time I go into my flower garden. I've
had these stupid cicadas that have taken over all the fences.
I found a dead bird the other day and there
was a lot of ins around it. I don't know
what's going on. And then there's snails. Okay, these snails,
while I'm moaning, somehow find.

Speaker 1 (30:06):
Their ways on me. Where do they even come from?
I don't know.

Speaker 3 (30:10):
Then I always walk through these stupid spider webs because
there's so many trees that surround my fence. So whenever
I'm mowing, I'm running through spider webs. It's a whole
thing happening. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

Speaker 1 (30:21):
About what's happening in my backyard. You did not know
what can of works. Literally you just opened. That has
been my experience happening outside recently. So there's that. Do
you have anything that I remind you of anything?

Speaker 2 (30:36):
I mean, mine is like a more life thing. Of
people were riot saying that you're not going to be
like the things you're into aren't going to be cool forever,
and eventually the things that you like are going to
be laying to the younger generation. M Yeah, I was like, Nah,
that's never gonna happen. Like everything I'm into is still
going to be cool. But now, like in my thirties,
I realized that everything I think is still cool to

like the younger generation is so lame.

Speaker 1 (31:00):
Okay, anything in particular.

Speaker 2 (31:02):
It's probably music in particular of like all the bands
I grew up listening to in my head, they're all
still really cool and still like new and younger, like
even like Blankolin eighty two. But the kids now like
that's viewing as like older dad rock, and it's like
a weird position to be in, like, oh, this has
happened to me, like it does happen, like growing up

thinking like what your parents are into is so lame
because your parents like it, and what you're into now
is like the coolest thing. Now it's like fully cycling
into me. And I think I'm just in a weird
place of like being thirty about it. I mean, might
be thirty three so and.

Speaker 1 (31:39):
You're not even old, yeah, not even a little bit.

Speaker 2 (31:41):
But it's weird seeing now people like even like I
probably thought thirties was old, like when I was eighteen
or even in their twenties.

Speaker 3 (31:47):
I thought my older scissors who were in their twenties
were old when I was young.

Speaker 2 (31:51):
But I was trying to join like a run club
here in town, and one of the questions on the
Q and A was is thirty two like too old?
And I was like, I know, I even like thought
of that day of like joining a run club and
being in my thirties, of being like the older person
in the group.

Speaker 3 (32:06):
Wait, so I asked, is thirty two old?

Speaker 2 (32:08):
Yes? Well there was like they did like a Q
and A of people just asking like how far is it?
Like what type of people and somebody just asked, like,
it's thirty two too old to be a part of
this run club, and they're like, no, we welcome all ages.
Thinking like, I'm gonna go and be in the old guy.
I'm on thirty two, okay, felt were.

Speaker 1 (32:24):
You the old guy or was there people that were older?

Speaker 2 (32:26):
No, there's older people too, Okay, but it just feels
like I guess primarily that the run group is like
college age kids. Yeah, so like people like twenty two,
twenty four in that range. So I guess I'm like
ten years younger older than Okay.

Speaker 3 (32:40):
Well, I think you take it as a compliment because
you're in physical fit enough to keep up with the
college kids.

Speaker 2 (32:45):
That is what I try to tell my I mean, yeah,
that is what I told myself. I'm like, yeah, I
am thirty two, but it's like and keep up with him.
I'm not like, yeah, huffing and puffing.

Speaker 1 (32:54):
Exactly, so you you get credit for that for me. Anyways,
I don't know if I'm not.

Speaker 2 (33:00):
Yeah, it's just weird, like I kind of forget, like
how I don't feel thirty two, even like my body,
I don't feel thirty two. A lot of people say, like,
once you turn thirty, like your body starts breaking down,
you don't recover as fast. But I don't really feel
that yet, and that's probably gonna be the next thing
of they were right when I feel it.

Speaker 3 (33:20):
Yeah, But you know I can relate to something on
there because I did the wobble at a bachelorette party
at a bar and my knees hurt very badly.

Speaker 1 (33:32):
I did the wobble.

Speaker 3 (33:33):
I think that song is like four minutes long and
I got done, and my knees still hurt today from
doing that stupid wobble.

Speaker 1 (33:40):
And I don't even go down that low. So, like,
I get it. It sucks. It sucks getting older, but
we are not old. You and I like, we're not old.

Speaker 2 (33:49):
It's true, like we really are.

Speaker 1 (33:51):
Lunchbox he is, I'll stand by that.

Speaker 2 (33:53):
He probably doesn't think he do. No, he's like, I don't.

Speaker 3 (33:56):
Feel like a little kid at heart, so that's what
makes him a little bit younger. Okay, last last question.
Guilty pleasure TV show or movie.

Speaker 1 (34:05):
That you maybe can't believe you keep watching and you're like,
why am I doing this?

Speaker 2 (34:09):
The last one I just rewatched was the Lizzie McGuire
movie Oh So Good. And that's good. That's just a
good movie. But I feel like to other people like,
why are you watching Lizzie McGuire movie?

Speaker 1 (34:17):
Oh yeah, why did you pick Lizzie McGuire movie? Of
all the things?

Speaker 2 (34:20):
I forgot how? I think it just celebrated the twenty
year anniversary and that popped up on Instagram and I
was like, we should watch it to me and my
wife watched it.

Speaker 1 (34:28):
Okay, I have to tell you this because it's hilarious.
Whenever this movie gets brought up.

Speaker 3 (34:32):
There's a scene where the Burnett Lizzy is like or no, no, no,
The blonde Lizzy is singing to the crowd and her
body is like shaking, and every.

Speaker 1 (34:42):
Time I'm like, this isn't real. I can tell it's
not real because the body doesn't move that way.

Speaker 2 (34:47):
Oh yeah, do you know what I'm talking to? Were
figuring out that scene too, because it's clear whenever they
switch to the stunt double. But even in that moment,
it looks like a like a fifty year old woman
steps in.

Speaker 3 (34:57):
For yeah, and she like, she's face. I've seen the crowd,
you're the videos on her. This is such a specific
scene and I don't know why it books me every time.
I am obsessed with this movie. But every time I
see the scene she's literally her hands are up and
she kind of shakes her butt and the body doesn't
move in a normal way, and every time it throws
me off.

Speaker 1 (35:15):
So that's what I think of when I think I'm
not now. I don't know why it's such a weird thing,
but U great movie. Not a weird one though, good
guilty Pleasure pick.

Speaker 2 (35:26):
I like it, And then my TV show would probably
be like a Nickelodeon show, like I Carlely, like I've
probably seen every episode.

Speaker 1 (35:32):
Do you watch the reboot?

Speaker 2 (35:34):
I never finished it because I think I got Paramount
Plus just to watch it.

Speaker 1 (35:38):

Speaker 2 (35:39):
I watched the first season, started the second season, and
then I think I didn't want to pay for Paramount
Plus anymore. So I didn't finish it. But I remember
what happened, like what everybody was freaking out about in that.
I don't spoil it, but I can tell.

Speaker 1 (35:50):
Me after because I did watch it, and now I
can't remember.

Speaker 2 (35:52):
I didn't want to go back and watch it just
for that episode.

Speaker 1 (35:55):
Yeah it was, I mean it was interesting. It was
like I didn't hate it. I mean, I didn't love it.

Speaker 3 (36:01):
I wasn't like this is groundbreaking work, but it was
a nostalgic like fun watch.

Speaker 2 (36:07):
And I wish like they were supposed to reboot Lizzie
Maguire in the same way, but they canceled it because
they thought it was too adult, like they wanted.

Speaker 1 (36:14):
To loved that.

Speaker 2 (36:15):
That would have been.

Speaker 1 (36:16):
Perfect, like we needed that. Hillary Duff is such an
underrated actor.

Speaker 3 (36:21):
Like I say underrated in the sense that we just
don't hear about her and all the big blockbusters and
stuff all the time.

Speaker 1 (36:27):
But every time she's in something, I love it. She's
so great.

Speaker 3 (36:30):
Like I watched The How I Met Your Father.

Speaker 2 (36:33):
Yeah, I watched It's great. Got canceled too, it did,
And Younger.

Speaker 1 (36:38):
Is another thing she was in, which is also really great.
So dang, Hillary Duff. See she's underrated.

Speaker 3 (36:43):
She just can't catch that big break in the day
because she already had, maybe because she had her I
don't know whatever. Mine is definitely something I shouldn't be watching,
but it's selling some tence.

Speaker 1 (36:55):
Terrible TV shows.

Speaker 2 (36:56):
I watched the first season of that, maybe a little
bit of the second se but I was more fascinated
with the houses. And then they stopped showing houses. I
was like, why am I still watching this?

Speaker 1 (37:04):

Speaker 3 (37:05):
Yeah, it's like a trash It's like one of those
things and you're like I can't look away, and like
I see a new season, like god.

Speaker 1 (37:11):
Watch it, don't know why? Do not know why?

Speaker 3 (37:13):
I don't give a crap what's going on in these
people's lives, don't.

Speaker 1 (37:16):
Follow any of them, but for whatever reason, I keep
watching it. I don't understand myself anymore.

Speaker 2 (37:22):
Mike, Yeah, that one's kind of addictive a little bit.

Speaker 3 (37:26):
Yeah, it's like the reality trash TV whatever, because they
just dropped like a new season of Selling the OC
and it's always I always find them interesting when they
have like real life news that connects to it, and
that the guy on there is the ex husband of.

Speaker 1 (37:42):
What was her, Brittany Snow and Pitch Perfect and so.

Speaker 3 (37:47):
There was like this big scandal with all of that,
and I was like, oh, that's interesting. But like, I'm
not the kind of person that like is out here
on Reddit threads and like really into these trash reality
shows and just for whatever reason like to watch them.

Speaker 1 (38:00):
And I can't figure out what part of my brain
sparks that.

Speaker 2 (38:03):
I guess that would be another one for me, but
except I stop watching it so I sense it is.

Speaker 1 (38:07):
Yeah. I don't know why, but I'm with you.

Speaker 3 (38:10):
I like seeing all the things, mostly because they show
like fifty million dollars house.

Speaker 1 (38:14):
I'm like, who owns that? And sometimes they show them
I'm like, wow, that's so cool. It's like seeing like
a like a recluse come out, you know what I mean.

Speaker 2 (38:22):
Yeah, And then me, I started like criticizing the house
and like I wouldn't have that, no, and I couldn't
afford this ever, But I'm like, nah, that waterfall in
the bedroom, Like, ahh, that's tacky.

Speaker 3 (38:32):
There was one that had a bedroom that the whole
ceiling opened up and the bed rotated to look at
the sky.

Speaker 1 (38:37):
I was like, that is when you know you've made it.

Speaker 2 (38:39):
Yeah. There was one that had like an infinity pool.
But then when you're like in the living room, you
can like see people swimming because the it's like carved
out or like the glass is like the roof.

Speaker 1 (38:49):
That feels like some weird fantasies are being played out.

Speaker 2 (38:51):
Oh if I was rich, that's what I would be doing.
