00:01:43   ok thank you John of all the Merlin [TS]

00:01:46   wants to say thank you again [TS]

00:01:47   of all the people in my life where I [TS]

00:01:50   can't even hear no I know I could just [TS]

00:01:52   translate everything he says 21 right [TS]

00:01:55   here he goes [TS]

00:01:56   Merlin over here go ahead you want [TS]

00:01:58   something to adjudicate oh uh ok I i [TS]

00:02:01   found a note to my daughter a love note [TS]

00:02:04   to my daughter in her backpack [TS]

00:02:06   should I acknowledge that ignore it or [TS]

00:02:08   something else Merlin found a love note [TS]

00:02:11   to his daughter in her backpack should [TS]

00:02:16   he acknowledge it or should he leave it [TS]

00:02:18   alone or some third option she is not [TS]

00:02:23   old enough to be receiving love letters [TS]

00:02:25   in my what is there a hurt she's at John [TS]

00:02:28   John John she's 8 years of age and his [TS]

00:02:30   rate is reciprocated [TS]

00:02:31   she's 8 years of age and it seems like [TS]

00:02:34   the love feelings are reciprocated [TS]

00:02:37   is it clear that the letter is from a [TS]

00:02:39   forty-five-year-old manager Ahn Joong [TS]

00:02:42   could you please tell john it's written [TS]

00:02:44   in it and nearly indecipherable scroll [TS]

00:02:47   it's nearly indecipherable a scrawled [TS]

00:02:50   but I think that's unclear about the age [TS]

00:02:53   because if i had written a love letter [TS]

00:02:54   would also be an incomprehensible take a [TS]

00:02:57   picture of it if you ever need it for [TS]

00:02:59   evidence but otherwise let your daughter [TS]

00:03:02   began to cultivate our own inner life [TS]

00:05:28   ok thank you Dad [TS]

00:05:32   alright so you know this is I've been [TS]

00:05:35   been recording a lot of podcast lately [TS]

00:05:38   remotely uh-huh and magnetically charged [TS]

00:05:42   your bathtub at the half and in the in [TS]

00:05:45   the streets and now I'm here I'm here at [TS]

00:05:48   the at the famous judge john hodgman [TS]

00:05:51   chambers and the velvet curtains and the [TS]

00:05:54   enormous desk [TS]

00:05:55   do you feel like you're out of material [TS]

00:05:57   are resorting to stunts or is this a [TS]

00:05:58   happenstance thing is it experimenting [TS]

00:06:00   are you having a crisis it's just it's [TS]

00:06:02   just the way it worked out what's [TS]

00:06:03   leading you to all these novel locations [TS]

00:06:05   I don't know I'm not really somebody [TS]

00:06:07   that that does stunts I i got my god you [TS]

00:06:11   know I got sick and then you get really [TS]

00:06:13   sick got really sick but I think what [TS]

00:06:16   happened was I i received as a gift that [TS]

00:06:19   that pretty neat be castor microphone [TS]

00:06:23   and things weird looking [TS]

00:06:25   it's weird-looking and but it plugs into [TS]

00:06:27   my laptop and I had I done the thing [TS]

00:06:30   where I moved my computer to the office [TS]

00:06:32   i eliminated the possibility of [TS]

00:06:34   podcasting from my home [TS]

00:06:35   partly or almost entirely to get me out [TS]

00:06:38   of the house and into another location [TS]

00:06:41   where my work could conceivably happen [TS]

00:06:43   mhm but then I got this microphone and [TS]

00:06:46   one when i was on the RV trip I [TS]

00:06:49   podcasted from California and then I [TS]

00:06:53   realized how easy it was to just pull [TS]

00:06:55   plug and play [TS]

00:06:57   I was plugin and [TS]

00:06:59   I am and then I said he and it's of its [TS]

00:07:02   those kinds of mice tend to be very [TS]

00:07:03   forgiving even when i became a nominally [TS]

00:07:06   professional podcaster i still use the [TS]

00:07:08   same Mike I used since 2004-2005 because [TS]

00:07:11   you just plug it in it goes and let him [TS]

00:07:13   play [TS]

00:07:13   it's idiot-proof and that the 1 i'm [TS]

00:07:15   using right now is Hodgins road rude and [TS]

00:07:21   it's a USB mic is it a white Mike I now [TS]

00:07:25   it's sort of black looks like a [TS]

00:07:27   community in all honesty it looks like a [TS]

00:07:28   butt plug [TS]

00:07:29   I was gonna say this looks a little bit [TS]

00:07:30   like coit tower combined with a sex toy [TS]

00:07:32   it's like a short coit ok short coit [TS]

00:07:36   because I road is what i use this is [TS]

00:07:38   very interesting stuff for our listeners [TS]

00:07:39   that's that's what I used for years [TS]

00:07:40   until like the last you know couple [TS]

00:07:42   three years [TS]

00:07:42   that's what I'm just gonna be used as he [TS]

00:07:44   has one of those like radio station [TS]

00:07:46   articulated Mike booms of the [TS]

00:07:50   articulating boom I'm looking from his [TS]

00:07:52   skype profile photo [TS]

00:07:53   yeah which is actually one less creepy [TS]

00:07:55   pictures I've seen of him in the last [TS]

00:07:56   five years [TS]

00:07:57   he's uh he's doing like a kind of a [TS]

00:07:59   computer selfie talking into a hanging [TS]

00:08:01   like yeah right i mean his right now his [TS]

00:08:04   beard is sort of in the remember the [TS]

00:08:06   movie big trouble little china never [TS]

00:08:09   stopped but I know the film [TS]

00:08:10   yeah well I he's got a beard that sort [TS]

00:08:13   of would not be out of place in that [TS]

00:08:14   film but you know my podcasts Mike [TS]

00:08:17   holding setup is just a it's a desk [TS]

00:08:19   stands which is to say normal mic stand [TS]

00:08:23   that's only eight inches high [TS]

00:08:25   I was just a character played by James [TS]

00:08:27   Hong that's right i love that guy [TS]

00:08:30   yeah James I'm very good he plays the he [TS]

00:08:32   plays come to pandas dad [TS]

00:08:34   yeah that's right he's also he's also [TS]

00:08:41   looking for a girl with green eyes [TS]

00:08:42   aren't we all are John yeah and so what [TS]

00:08:46   happens beer now has definitely become a [TS]

00:08:47   little bit how do you say how you say as [TS]

00:08:50   crackly scraggly anyway so he's got this [TS]

00:08:54   boom mic which makes me feel like I'm [TS]

00:08:56   doing a radio interview in the like [TS]

00:08:59   radio station yeah [TS]

00:09:01   many of those i have em but uh but yeah [TS]

00:09:04   so I keep my I keep my microphone in my [TS]

00:09:07   hand [TS]

00:09:08   my lap when we normally record my [TS]

00:09:10   goodness and that's why when I started [TS]

00:09:13   recording in my bed and then also in my [TS]

00:09:15   bathtub [TS]

00:09:17   I I wasn't sure what to do with that mic [TS]

00:09:19   and so that picture of me recording in [TS]

00:09:21   my bed it's actually on my chest [TS]

00:09:24   uh-huh but I couldn't do that in the [TS]

00:09:26   bath anyway so i don't i'm not this [TS]

00:09:28   isn't justice [TS]

00:09:29   it's not a series of of gags and the [TS]

00:09:32   study is not a value judgment you got to [TS]

00:09:34   keep things fresh [TS]

00:09:35   yeah you don't know I feel like what I [TS]

00:10:00   that i got in 1998 that I that I adore [TS]

00:10:02   that we had compact disc records [TS]

00:10:05   that's right compact discs which used to [TS]

00:10:07   until very recently seemed like they [TS]

00:10:11   were going to be the the the way that I [TS]

00:10:13   heard the living who brother you [TS]

00:10:14   remember that somebody said to me the [TS]

00:10:16   other day they were like do you want to [TS]

00:10:18   buy compact they were being you know [TS]

00:10:20   kind of smug snide pro streaming i was [TS]

00:10:23   left with a millennial John was a [TS]

00:10:25   millennial ma said do you want to buy a [TS]

00:10:27   compact disc and I said I never wanted [TS]

00:10:28   to buy a compact disc what I wanted to [TS]

00:10:30   do was sell them to people [TS]

00:10:32   yeah I had no personal interest in them [TS]

00:10:34   but i wanted to sell them and I cannot [TS]

00:10:37   sell whatever strings you can tell you [TS]

00:10:40   can sell stream now that's not that [TS]

00:10:41   doesn't belong to me I'm not the owner [TS]

00:10:43   of stream I don't know how up-to-date [TS]

00:10:44   you are on this job but that the [TS]

00:10:46   streaming model is not earning artist a [TS]

00:10:48   lot of money i don't have to wear this [TS]

00:10:49   for and what now when I further [TS]

00:10:51   understand it's not really earning money [TS]

00:10:53   for anybody [TS]

00:10:54   is that true didn't somebody just report [TS]

00:10:56   some you know some fewer earnings than [TS]

00:11:00   they expected something like we might be [TS]

00:11:01   there might be a few earnings I mean you [TS]

00:11:03   know there's a lot of infrastructure to [TS]

00:11:04   that [TS]

00:11:05   yeah and it's a you know an ecosystem I [TS]

00:11:08   think it's very challenging to people [TS]

00:11:10   and your was named medina team where I'm [TS]

00:11:13   these number 17 86 comedy be warmer for [TS]

00:11:18   a second there I little jump in the pool [TS]

00:11:20   I thought you said it was an ecosystem [TS]

00:11:22   and I was like a was like the new [TS]

00:11:24   pornographers [TS]

00:11:25   oh no no I was thinking of the one from [TS]

00:11:27   the velvet underground down the bike [TS]

00:11:28   right [TS]

00:11:29   she don't like she doesn't like no I [TS]

00:11:31   think she was a French bike Nico I might [TS]

00:11:34   well my way I think she got on a bike [TS]

00:11:38   but I'm not know that might have been [TS]

00:11:39   what about the lady from radiolab from [TS]

00:11:41   stereolab had a bike accident to the the [TS]

00:11:44   radiolab lady a had had a bike accident [TS]

00:11:47   i think that was a long time ago didn't [TS]

00:11:49   they didn't have a terrace stereo lab [TS]

00:11:52   bike accident you know Sonny Bono died [TS]

00:11:56   in a skiing accident [TS]

00:11:58   yeah and also that Kennedy there was a [TS]

00:12:00   Kennedy the diner scheme [TS]

00:12:02   I don't know buddy when i hear something [TS]

00:12:03   happen with skiing on my alarm bells go [TS]

00:12:06   off for me [TS]

00:12:07   well this is the thin side that sounds [TS]

00:12:08   like a jamup John I've skied my whole [TS]

00:12:10   life and I've had a lot of accidents [TS]

00:12:12   some of them horrific accidents that we [TS]

00:12:17   would that we used to call the yard sale [TS]

00:12:19   accident because from the point where [TS]

00:12:23   you initially contact the snow to the [TS]

00:12:25   point where you finally come to rest you [TS]

00:12:28   leave little bits of yourself all your [TS]

00:12:31   garments all of your equipment just in a [TS]

00:12:34   long long sort of skid mark shot like a [TS]

00:12:38   wily kpx it and yeah because you're [TS]

00:12:40   going so fast that when you when you [TS]

00:12:42   lose it and there's that there's that [TS]

00:12:45   pregnant moment you're skiing and then [TS]

00:12:47   you realize that you are going to go [TS]

00:12:51   down like something happens you catch an [TS]

00:12:53   edge or something is awful and there's [TS]

00:12:56   that moment you're flying through the [TS]

00:12:58   air and you're like oh shit and then [TS]

00:13:01   when you hit when you contact and you [TS]

00:13:04   start to I mean that first contact and [TS]

00:13:06   then you are just flying through the air [TS]

00:13:09   tumbling and the first thing you lose [TS]

00:13:12   our skis and then your hat and goggles [TS]

00:13:15   and then inexplicably your gloves just [TS]

00:13:19   your period your gloves just come off [TS]

00:13:21   for some reason and your poles and then [TS]

00:13:24   snow is being stuffed into your nose and [TS]

00:13:26   mouth because you're still going 40 [TS]

00:13:29   miles an hour [TS]

00:13:30   and then all this other stuff comes off [TS]

00:13:33   your jacket somehow your boots i'm not [TS]

00:13:37   actually your boots that would be really [TS]

00:13:39   hard but you know by the time you come [TS]

00:13:40   to arrest yeah you can be really fucked [TS]

00:13:43   up but to die i'm usually I think it's [TS]

00:14:07   enough to die and i know this is just [TS]

00:14:09   your biases out of heavenly I've been [TS]

00:14:15   and I really wish there were some crime [TS]

00:14:17   scene photos of sunny like wrapped [TS]

00:14:40   indication of substances or alcohol that [TS]

00:14:45   good no substance isn't you know I know [TS]

00:14:46   there's no chemical it happened [TS]

00:14:48   completely in a vacuum that sounds very [TS]

00:14:51   suspicious [TS]

00:14:52   it was you know there was always a [TS]

00:14:53   divide between skiers who would ski [TS]

00:14:56   drunk and skiers who wouldn't [TS]

00:15:01   and then there were you know like I [TS]

00:15:02   loved justice Keystone it's one of the [TS]

00:15:06   great feelings because you really [TS]

00:15:09   recognize like wow I'm hurtling down a [TS]

00:15:11   mountain it's this is a amazing this is [TS]

00:15:14   this is like a singular right to know [TS]

00:15:20   when you're when you're skiing ski all [TS]

00:15:22   the time you just feel like oh yeah this [TS]

00:15:23   is my normal thing but when you really [TS]

00:15:25   realize what you're doing you're way way [TS]

00:15:28   high up on a mountain in the middle of [TS]

00:15:29   winter which is a condition you would [TS]

00:15:31   not otherwise be in right it's kind of a [TS]

00:15:34   fantastical position to be in if you had [TS]

00:15:37   to [TS]

00:15:38   climb there in the winter it would be [TS]

00:15:41   amazing but you write a chair up there [TS]

00:15:42   and then you're you're just flying down [TS]

00:15:46   it and so when you're stoned [TS]

00:15:48   you're aware of all that in a different [TS]

00:15:50   way and you just like this is incredible [TS]

00:15:52   a lot of my friends would get drunk on [TS]

00:15:54   wine and ski and that always seemed [TS]

00:15:58   insane like all it does is is deprived [TS]

00:16:01   you of coordination it doesn't give you [TS]

00:16:03   any feeling of like whoa [TS]

00:16:06   it just makes you sloppy yeah I used to [TS]

00:16:10   kind of a connoisseur even before my [TS]

00:16:12   days are discovering whiskey I I used to [TS]

00:16:13   be kind of a connoisseur of picking the [TS]

00:16:15   right substance for a given situation is [TS]

00:16:18   getting that wrong you don't wanna do [TS]

00:16:19   that and i can see that skiing and we'd [TS]

00:16:21   sounds like a match made in you know [TS]

00:16:23   heavenly ski and we don't mean to to [TS]

00:16:26   cross da to cross-pollinate podcast but [TS]

00:16:29   skiing weed and mountain dew yeah yeah [TS]

00:16:31   in what could be better at section 3.1 [TS]

00:16:34   religion of Sonny Bono's profile I don't [TS]

00:16:37   will probably cut this out he became [TS]

00:16:39   interested in Scientology took [TS]

00:16:40   Scientology coils are you can also we [TS]

00:16:43   have new listeners to our podcast [TS]

00:16:45   ya welcome partly because of the [TS]

00:16:49   Roman Catholic on official documents his [TS]

00:16:51   wife Mary also took Scientology courses [TS]

00:16:53   however however after his death mary [TS]

00:16:56   Bono stated that quote Sonny did try to [TS]

00:16:59   break away at one point and they made it [TS]

00:17:01   very difficult for him on my boat and [TS]

00:17:05   you trashed the church denied any [TS]

00:17:07   estrangement from bono he tried to get [TS]

00:17:09   out but they pulled him back at the back [TS]

00:17:11   in maybe not with the help of a [TS]

00:17:13   Scientologist 30 so is it is it do you [TS]

00:17:16   think they took him down to the desert [TS]

00:17:18   outside of Palm Springs and put him in a [TS]

00:17:20   shipping container and whacked him with [TS]

00:17:22   the sagebrush or whatever it is they do [TS]

00:17:24   down there could be could be could be [TS]

00:17:26   that he I you know check his mail [TS]

00:17:27   someday and I get with a special offers [TS]

00:17:29   you get right like you with what you get [TS]

00:17:31   a cruise or vacation you know maybe [TS]

00:17:33   thought a worst-case it's a timeshare [TS]

00:17:35   but I get to go skiing and heavenly it's [TS]

00:17:37   at a time share it turned out to be a [TS]

00:17:39   special offer to not leave the church of [TS]

00:17:41   scientology [TS]

00:17:44   Mr Bond novel idea this is an offer we [TS]

00:17:46   make exactly once wasn't we ever have a [TS]

00:17:48   one-time offer cannot leave the church [TS]

00:17:51   of scientology heavenly is a nice name [TS]

00:17:53   for a place never skied there and I'm [TS]

00:17:56   embarrassed to say I really am [TS]

00:17:58   embarrassed to say it you know i think i [TS]

00:18:00   may say things on this podcast that [TS]

00:18:02   would embarrass other people to say yeah [TS]

00:18:04   I know what I'm not worried about them [TS]

00:18:06   but I'm not embarrassed to say those [TS]

00:18:08   things but I mean I'm genuinely [TS]

00:18:09   embarrassed to say what I'm about to say [TS]

00:18:11   can which is that I have not skied that [TS]

00:18:14   many places while I can be embarrassed [TS]

00:18:17   to say that well because you know skiing [TS]

00:18:19   was a big part of my identity when I was [TS]

00:18:21   growing up right and and I've been to [TS]

00:18:25   Europe many times but I've never skied [TS]

00:18:28   there [TS]

00:19:00   of the like adventuring that I [TS]

00:19:03   supposedly do that that just I don't [TS]

00:19:06   know what I think I feel like it [TS]

00:19:08   reflects poorly on me that I should have [TS]

00:19:11   been you know been to andorra i stood at [TS]

00:22:25   ridiculously narrow bike paths and then [TS]

00:22:28   some angry lorry driver will [TS]

00:22:31   intentionally run them off the road [TS]

00:37:57   thing there's not going to be a lot of [TS]

00:37:58   people listening this program that I've [TS]

00:38:00   never seen bosom buddies but bosom [TS]

00:38:01   buddies was very influential show i had [TS]

00:38:04   strong feelings about that show [TS]

00:38:05   yeah I did too and it was like a show [TS]

00:38:07   that was made for me at that was right [TS]

00:38:09   in the pocket for me because that was my [TS]

00:38:10   humor [TS]

00:38:11   oh that was funny me too and then the [TS]

00:38:13   premise was that Tom Hanks before he was [TS]

00:38:15   famous and peter scolari were like [TS]

00:38:18   Tootsie it's a pre Tootsie show was a [TS]

00:38:21   pretense II think it was pretty I think [TS]

00:38:23   influence Tootsie I think when she came [TS]

00:38:25   out I was like this is just the plot of [TS]

00:38:27   books on my god i think you're right it [TS]

00:38:28   came out like two years after after [TS]

00:38:31   bosom buddies [TS]

00:38:49   they were trying to live in New York [TS]

00:38:50   achieves a young maverick guys who want [TS]

00:38:53   to break into advertising right and [TS]

00:38:55   there's no way they could afford the the [TS]

00:38:58   rents of manhattan which seems crazy [TS]

00:39:00   considering that in nineteen eighty it [TS]

00:39:03   was not expensive to live in Manhattan [TS]

00:39:04   not not anywhere near as expensive as it [TS]

00:39:06   is now anyway so they lived in an [TS]

00:39:09   all-girl like a YWCA basically like an [TS]

00:39:14   apartment building for single women and [TS]

00:39:17   off the hijinks that ensued but what was [TS]

00:39:20   confusing to me was that at the time [TS]

00:39:22   watching the show I preferred the peter [TS]

00:39:25   scolari character [TS]

00:39:26   yeah he was the 1i like right i mean he [TS]

00:39:28   was he was the Luke to Tom Hanks is Tom [TS]

00:39:31   and Tom solo Han Solo a little bit like [TS]

00:39:33   it was easier to relate to Peter Scolari [TS]

00:39:35   he was kind of that the site keeps the [TS]

00:39:37   second banana [TS]

00:39:38   yeah but Tom Hanks seem kind of gangly [TS]

00:39:41   and glory was you know like everybody [TS]

00:39:44   like Starsky [TS]

00:39:46   nobody wanted to be hutch yeah I know I [TS]

00:39:49   know I know the same way that everybody [TS]

00:39:50   wanted to be Luke Duke instead of boat [TS]

00:39:53   do you think so did you want to be Bo [TS]

00:39:55   Duke I think I think Bo Duke is is rick [TS]

00:40:02   this right [TS]

00:40:03   Luke Duke is it you know what it doesn't [TS]

00:40:04   matter you're watching the show yes [TS]

00:40:06   maybe but I also i often wanted to be [TS]

00:40:09   the person who was the person I wasn't [TS]

00:40:11   supposed to want to be I like Luke more [TS]

00:40:13   than hot in the first movie when I was a [TS]

00:40:36   so they had they had to as I this is not [TS]

00:40:38   where we use anymore but they had to [TS]

00:40:40   dress in what used to be called drag [TS]

00:40:41   that's right right now it's a drag [TS]

00:40:43   anymore [TS]

00:40:44   I'm steering clear the whole thing but [TS]

00:40:46   they would have to wear makeup and wigs [TS]

00:40:47   and a lot of humor uh initial humor was [TS]

00:40:50   derived out of the the sunlight hotness [TS]

00:40:54   of these two living in this lady's hotel [TS]

00:40:56   and of course then you got sunny I think [TS]

00:40:58   her name was this is a decision that we [TS]

00:41:01   can actually do that anywhere life [TS]

00:41:03   yeah at the new there stick right she [TS]

00:41:05   will know that was it wasn't amy-jo [TS]

00:41:07   sperber that seems like a fake name and [TS]

00:41:11   totally see maybe throw sperber would be [TS]

00:41:13   my drag but Tom Hanks his character his [TS]

00:41:16   name I don't remember was infatuated by [TS]

00:41:19   by dan Aykroyd wife Donna Dixon right [TS]

00:41:23   and she met dan Aykroyd during the [TS]

00:41:25   filming of doctor detroit one of the [TS]

00:41:27   all-time great mom I'm gonna rip off [TS]

00:41:30   your head and shit down your neck [TS]

00:41:33   why do you always have to really [TS]

00:41:34   inexplicable movies that that and and [TS]

00:41:37   nothing but trouble to movies that are [TS]

00:41:40   very hard to understand who dr. Detroit [TS]

00:41:42   nothing but trouble [TS]

00:41:43   yeah i was watching what's that movie oh [TS]

00:41:46   burn after reading burn after reading a [TS]

00:41:49   movie it's a coen brothers movie [TS]

00:41:52   oh and you know I was thinking a lot [TS]

00:41:54   about this like the Coen brothers make [TS]

00:41:56   some movies that are very serious [TS]

00:41:58   and they also make some movies that are [TS]

00:42:00   very funny [TS]

00:42:02   let me make those movies in between that [TS]

00:42:04   are neither serious nor funny and those [TS]

00:42:07   are the ones that really baffle me and [TS]

00:42:09   burn after reading is in that category [TS]

00:42:11   interesting like I think the weather was [TS]

00:42:13   a serious man probably count on that a [TS]

00:42:16   little bit i know is why i love their [TS]

00:42:19   movies [TS]

00:42:20   oh yes normally I do too but this is a [TS]

00:42:22   movie that that has all-star cast right [TS]

00:42:24   John Malkovich sure Brad Pitt and George [TS]

00:42:29   Clooney I feel like maybe what it is is [TS]

00:42:31   that if George Clooney is a coen [TS]

00:42:32   brothers movie it isn't the chances are [TS]

00:42:35   it's not going to be one of the good [TS]

00:42:36   ones [TS]

00:42:37   oh really feel like that may be true i [TS]

00:42:40   mean everybody likes but oh brother [TS]

00:56:31   that this is the thing about so many of [TS]

00:56:33   those job paths where the decision to be [TS]

00:56:36   a bush pilot is somewhat predicated on [TS]

00:56:40   you not realizing yet how many different [TS]

00:56:43   ways there are to die at a young man's [TS]

00:56:46   game right [TS]

00:57:09   helicopter adventurer be pretty easy for [TS]

00:57:11   you to have a small helicopter that like [TS]

00:57:39   the view our helicopter adventurist but [TS]

00:57:41   I think you have to learn to fly the [TS]

00:57:47   you learn to fly out [TS]

00:57:48   I you know I understand where you're [TS]

00:58:14   for medium I like her so much on TV and [TS]

00:58:17   movies don't do that much for me and [TS]

00:58:19   this movie has a that problem that [TS]

01:08:10   and had to float around everybody in the [TS]

01:08:13   seventies it was weird because youyou [TS]

01:08:15   kind of even like dad grew his hair out [TS]

01:08:17   a little bit like everybody had to get [TS]

01:08:18   longer hair and sharper collars but like [TS]

01:08:20   so many men and even rock bands go back [TS]

01:08:23   and look at like the zombies like half [TS]

01:08:25   of the zombies are obviously totally [TS]

01:08:26   going bald even like 1968 but you look [TS]

01:08:37   whole thing we're sweeping over he [TS]

01:08:39   almost looks like he's a member of the [TS]

01:08:41   monks the the house on the rock [TS]

01:08:43   yeah yeah and never understood how you [TS]

01:08:46   could have that how that movie could be [TS]

01:08:48   called was a cold wait until spring [TS]

01:08:50   Santini which one is that is that Robert [TS]

01:08:53   Altman think that was the one that came [TS]

01:08:55   later alright see you next Tuesday see [TS]

01:08:59   you next i literally I literally got [TS]

01:09:05   that joke last year I've been seeing [TS]

01:09:07   john landis movies for years the [TS]

01:09:09   constantly reference a fictional film [TS]

01:09:11   called see you next Tuesday and I [TS]

01:09:13   finally only got the job i only got that [TS]

01:09:16   joke like last year that you know that [TS]

01:09:18   kind of long con or shaggy dog story [TS]

01:09:21   yeah that makes me that type of stuff [TS]

01:09:24   makes me really happy wouldn't you like [TS]

01:09:26   to be somebody that had been running [TS]

01:09:28   some sort of long gag [TS]

01:09:31   oh yeah four years right ascensions [TS]

01:09:34   hiding in plain sight the whole time [TS]

01:09:36   that's right something I've always [TS]

01:09:38   wished that I had had the foresight to [TS]

01:09:42   lay something in wait decades ago that [TS]

01:09:48   was still laying in wait for some you [TS]

01:09:51   know some some Manchurian Candidate [TS]

01:09:55   style gag right that comes out that [TS]

01:09:58   something i don't know what it would be [TS]

01:09:59   a so I mean like crazy example would be [TS]

01:10:02   like a like a medieval monk doing a [TS]

01:10:05   cross stick where nobody would think to [TS]

01:10:07   look for a cross stick in a medieval [TS]

01:10:08   texts and then later on you go oh you [TS]

01:10:11   know it actually says you know go [TS]

01:10:13   chicago bears or what yeah [TS]

01:10:14   right it's the plot of some tom hanks [TS]

01:10:16   movie where he's in a pyramid sure and [TS]

01:10:19   he's got he's Nicolas Cage has to get [TS]

01:10:21   the Declaration of Independence signed [TS]

01:10:23   he finds the blue glasses and then he [TS]

01:10:25   looks up against anything able to solve [TS]

01:10:27   the rubik's cube butt but like so years [TS]

01:10:31   and years ago when I was still in high [TS]

01:10:34   school it was still possible to get a [TS]

01:10:37   fake ID by the following process are two [TS]

01:10:41   processes that I understand as i [TS]

01:10:42   understood them and maybe I learned this [TS]

01:10:44   in the anarchist cookbook and maybe this [TS]

01:10:46   was just conventional wisdom on the [TS]

01:10:47   streets [TS]

01:10:49   one of them was you would go to a [TS]

01:10:52   graveyard and find a gravestone of a [TS]

01:10:54   child that had died in the year you want [TS]

01:10:57   to do fake ya never know a kid that was [TS]

01:11:00   born in the year you wanted to be born [TS]

01:11:02   in but then died at two years old [TS]

01:11:04   mhm and then you would go to the public [TS]

01:11:07   records and get their birth certificate [TS]

01:11:10   you're kidding me that had no reference [TS]

01:11:11   of their death and then get an adult ID [TS]

01:11:16   based on their birth certificate and [TS]

01:11:19   from that you could then get a Social [TS]

01:11:22   Security number and actually build an [TS]

01:11:23   entire actual identity people would do [TS]

01:11:27   this in order to buy beer [TS]

01:11:29   well initially right you buy beer but [TS]

01:11:31   then if you have successfully done this [TS]

01:11:33   in a mortgage it can be a second ID [TS]

01:11:36   right i mean you have this have a [TS]

01:11:38   passport you assume this identity that [TS]

01:11:40   is attractive I got to be honest with [TS]

01:11:42   you and you could do it you can do it [TS]

01:11:44   even mean you could do it even that 40 [TS]

01:11:46   years old all you have to do is go find [TS]

01:11:48   somebody that was born the year you were [TS]

01:11:49   born and then died at a very young age [TS]

01:11:51   and you can just assume their identity [TS]

01:11:53   and disappear this was a this was [TS]

01:11:55   supposedly a method and it seemed just [TS]

01:12:01   too complicated and risky to do just in [TS]

01:12:05   order to buy beer but the but the [TS]

01:12:08   setting that is a boil the ocean beer [TS]

01:12:10   buying model right but it seems it [TS]

01:12:12   seemed even at the time like do this now [TS]

01:12:17   and spend these many years building that [TS]

01:12:21   identity and then when you need it you [TS]

01:12:23   never use it right it's there but you do [TS]

01:12:26   all the stuff right you get a bank [TS]

01:12:27   account [TS]

01:12:28   you know social security number and [TS]

01:12:29   passport you make payments you get a [TS]

01:12:32   credit card you you maintain that but [TS]

01:12:34   you never utilize it but it's there when [TS]

01:12:37   you need [TS]

01:12:37   it's like your own private sleeper cell [TS]

01:12:39   it's just it's your little it's just a [TS]

01:12:41   doorway to another world that you could [TS]

01:12:43   add you could decide on any day to just [TS]

01:12:46   call and the only risk of it there's no [TS]

01:12:49   really no risk of it because the parents [TS]

01:12:52   of this kid aren't you know it's not [TS]

01:12:56   it's not like a birth certificate has a [TS]

01:12:57   unless your review is remember all of [TS]

01:12:59   that right [TS]

01:13:01   the other way to do it this this again [TS]

01:13:04   suppose it was there were many instances [TS]

01:13:07   where a birth certificate wasn't [TS]

01:13:09   available the court house had burned [TS]

01:13:10   down something something something and [TS]

01:13:13   you could get a baptismal certificate [TS]

01:13:15   who from it from a from a priest where [TS]

01:13:20   you were baptized and the your date of [TS]

01:13:22   birth was on the baptismal certificate [TS]

01:13:24   and in certain jurisdictions that was [TS]

01:13:27   considered as good as a birth [TS]

01:13:29   certificate because who do you trust [TS]

01:13:31   interesting that that more than the [TS]

01:13:34   church and so in high school I actually [TS]

01:13:37   got ahold of a baptismal certificate and [TS]

01:13:42   I went to great lengths to forge it [TS]

01:13:44   where I wrote the information in what I [TS]

01:13:49   at the time thought was old-timey [TS]

01:13:50   writing sixties write it i think i might [TS]

01:13:55   even spilled some coffee on it and maybe [TS]

01:13:58   touch the edges of the day with the [TS]

01:14:00   light with a little the match just kind [TS]

01:14:02   of you know you look you're making [TS]

01:14:05   pirate the pirate map that's exactly [TS]

01:14:08   right and i have this thing which I felt [TS]

01:14:11   pretty confident about it looked pretty [TS]

01:14:14   good and I kept in the bottom of my sock [TS]

01:14:20   drawer and it was like this this loaded [TS]

01:14:25   pistol of possibility [TS]

01:14:29   this is your this is your Jason Bourne [TS]

01:14:31   box yeah and-and-and I was 16 I had this [TS]

01:14:35   thing I had no independent confirmation [TS]

01:14:38   that this would work [TS]

01:14:39   but i was i was building up the the the [TS]

01:14:45   cojones the hood spa to walk him to the [TS]

01:14:50   DMV lay this thing down and say my first [TS]

01:14:55   degree was lost in a fire and this is [TS]

01:14:58   all I have and see like roll the dice [TS]

01:15:02   yeah I and I figured it was a pretty big [TS]

01:15:04   roll of the dice because if it if this [TS]

01:15:06   is if this wasn't gonna work there was [TS]

01:15:10   fifty percent chance that the person [TS]

01:15:11   would just say now we don't accept that [TS]

01:15:13   as an ID and chase you out there is also [TS]

01:15:17   a fifty percent chance that they would [TS]

01:15:18   say why don't you come over here and sit [TS]

01:15:20   in this room for a minute honey yeah let [TS]

01:15:21   me go on calling my manager mr. white [TS]

01:15:24   yeah and then all of a sudden you know [TS]

01:15:25   there are three detectives there so I'm [TS]

01:15:28   what's all this thing [TS]

01:15:29   yeah so I never did it I never did it [TS]

01:15:32   and and then pretty soon after that it [TS]

01:15:39   no longer was an option right there it [TS]

01:15:42   became like now I don't think you would [TS]

01:15:45   be able to go in with a birth [TS]

01:15:47   certificate and establish an identity [TS]

01:15:48   that had never existed before then all [TS]

01:15:51   of a sudden a 40-year old person gets [TS]

01:15:54   his first social security number right [TS]

01:15:57   that's you can't just you can't invent [TS]

01:16:00   also i mean there's all kinds of things [TS]

01:16:01   like obviously there's all you know what [TS]

01:16:03   computer systems and cross-matching to [TS]

01:16:04   how that works that that's one thing but [TS]

01:16:07   also I think they probably used to be [TS]

01:16:08   more fires and floods i think there are [TS]

01:16:09   times when like there's a whole bunch of [TS]

01:16:11   documents that went back to the 1700 and [TS]

01:16:13   they got lost because there's a fire or [TS]

01:16:14   flood a firefly there's a fire flood was [TS]

01:16:17   not unusual Plus also more kids died [TS]

01:16:19   there's all kinds of things that will [TS]

01:16:20   create an environment where you could [TS]

01:16:21   buy beer without with a scheme like this [TS]

01:16:23   yeah well well and also like not just [TS]

01:16:26   buy beer but like you get a mortgage [TS]

01:16:29   think about all of the cars that i [TS]

01:16:32   bought and then broke down and I left [TS]

01:16:35   parked on the side of the road yeah yeah [TS]

01:16:37   places to go and never saw them again [TS]

01:16:39   right and in every case the reason that [TS]

01:16:42   i was able to do that is I never [TS]

01:16:44   switched the registration over to my [TS]

01:16:45   name which is why when you sell a car to [TS]

01:16:49   somebody immediately go and [TS]

01:16:52   just stir that you have sold it to think [TS]

01:16:54   you're doing a talking schools uh well I [TS]

01:16:57   is this all the time [TS]

01:16:58   listen this is a thing that everybody [TS]

01:17:00   should know because multiple times i [TS]

01:17:02   bought a car for five hundred dollars [TS]

01:17:03   for somebody and I drove it until it [TS]

01:17:04   broke down and I parked in a parking [TS]

01:17:06   meter on Saturday night and they get a [TS]

01:17:08   call out a week later and here they get [TS]

01:17:09   a call and they're like you know your [TS]

01:17:11   car was towed us seven hundred fifty [TS]

01:17:13   dollars rodri like what I sold that [TS]

01:17:15   thing to Sinai but if you you know if [TS]

01:17:20   you had a fake ID where you can actually [TS]

01:17:22   like register you can it could be your [TS]

01:17:24   like parking ticket ID or your yeah [TS]

01:17:28   you're like you're well if you're well [TS]

01:17:30   sure ID not to not to snow nothing [TS]

01:17:33   against the Welsh now that's that's such [TS]

01:17:35   a good idea to it i miss my chance and [TS]

01:17:38   that's the kind of like so the seeds [TS]

01:17:40   when you're young of a gag of a bit of a [TS]

01:17:44   about of a like a hidey-hole mhm where [TS]

01:17:49   you know where uh where one day Amelie [TS]

01:17:53   is going to drop some marble and it's [TS]

01:17:55   going to knock a piece of tile out of [TS]

01:17:57   the bathroom wall and there's your [TS]

01:18:00   little box full of toys you know what [TS]

01:18:03   I'm saying I i think i do but now it's [TS]

01:18:05   too late for us [TS]

01:18:06   you can't be a bush pilot it's gonna be [TS]

01:18:08   it's gonna be hard to be cowboy handsome [TS]

01:18:10   and almost probably never going to [TS]

01:18:11   discover our box at this point i might I [TS]

01:18:14   still hold out hope that normally will [TS]

01:18:16   discover my box but I am I haven't I [TS]

01:18:18   also feel like maybe I am becoming Kabul [TS]

01:18:20   handsome huh [TS]

01:18:22   there was a when I was in high school [TS]

01:18:25   there was a guy that had dimples right [TS]

01:18:29   magnum p.i scale dimples because magnum [TS]

01:18:33   didn't just have a big mustache area he [TS]

01:18:35   had a whole lot going on [TS]

01:18:37   killer dimples and I had a buddy who had [TS]

01:18:39   these dimples and the and it was [TS]

01:18:42   incredible to watch the dimples cast [TS]

01:18:45   spells on people [TS]

01:18:47   it was there was nothing else I mean it [TS]

01:18:48   wasn't like well he had really good hair [TS]

01:18:50   too but that was the dimples that we're [TS]

01:18:52   doing the work and I didn't have dimples [TS]

01:18:55   because my face was just made out of [TS]

01:18:57   putty writer it was made out of what was [TS]

01:19:00   it made of raw chicken you are you are [TS]

01:19:02   basically a canvas for a beard just [TS]

01:19:04   waiting for a beer to come along [TS]

01:19:05   weird campus i was a I was added I had a [TS]

01:19:07   beard Shape face that was made out of [TS]

01:19:09   raw chicken and and certain parts of my [TS]

01:19:12   complexion were on cook scallop roll [TS]

01:19:14   checking on cook sea scallop over there [TS]

01:19:16   but now I'm starting to develop dimples [TS]

01:19:21   I'm not sure whether they're fencing [TS]

01:19:23   scars or whether he should probably get [TS]

01:19:26   that look you know whether it's cancer [TS]

01:19:28   whether I'm just falling apart and one [TS]

01:19:30   side effects as Devils and you have the [TS]

01:19:32   cutest cancer you have the you know the [TS]

01:19:34   count is your scallops got face cancer [TS]

01:19:38   it's causing the inside of your cheek to [TS]

01:19:40   adhere to your jaw but it was cute so I [TS]

01:19:43   feel like there's a little bit of [TS]

01:19:44   scarring and weathering that's happening [TS]

01:19:46   to me that almost looks like cowboy got [TS]
