175 MIDNIGHT SPECIAL!
Kelly's record player indiscretions are publicly aired. Also discussed: The Sadness, The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, Jungle Cruise.
sorry did I break your concentration somewhere between science and superstition sites to show you strange aeons. Welcome strange aeons radio. That's Eric over there. Hello. That's finesse over there. Hello. They call me Kelly. You guys. You guys know that I like listening to records actual vinyl records. Yeah. And I bought a couple of old Magnavox consoles. And one of them had a record player that was working kind of and the other one not at all. And I was able to by going online and figuring out what needed to be greased up and everything. Get that one working, kind of, but it never was working great and had like variable speed on the motor. And so I finally decided to ship that off to Ohio and have this guy. You know, I went on to a Magnavox page on Facebook, found this guy that you know, services, these old Magnavox record players, talk to him about it, sent it to him. And he sends me a picture of it. As as he got it. It arrived safely and everything. But he says, Kelly, did somebody else try to service this before you sent it to me because they put way too much grease and all this stuff. And I was like, Well, I bought it at Goodwill, but nobody's service that. He's like, Oh, goodwill, those fucking assholes. Well, then he's posted pictures of it on the Magnavox page saying, This is what happens when goodwill tries to service the electronics. All these other collectors are piling on and everything. And I'm like, well, like in their defense. We don't know if somebody had done something before they got it. And so now I'm put in this weird position of defending goodwill from a lie, I told. And pretty soon I'm just like, liking all of his posts and agreeing with everybody she has horrible things about Goodwill. Meanwhile, Goodwill is over, they're gone. The fuck that we do. I have a very hard time imagining goodwill gives a crap about it, looks at anything, opens it up and does anything to people who are piling on was like, there's no reason they should be doing that. And then I'm also like, you guys, this was a $40 console. You know, the only reason I decided to get it sent in is because these old Magnavox especially these old Magnavox consoles, have just skyrocketed. They're ridiculous the two that you see here in my living room. Those go for anywhere from 350 to $700 apiece on eBay now with the turntables not working the turntables never worked. Wow. And so you know, I'm spending you know, with shipping and everything I will have dropped $300 on getting this turntable up to perfect but the reason I did that was because I looked at how much these were going for. And I was like, Well, shit, I might as well drop the money to make it worth it. So solve one of the other ones didn't know they look so good. There. That's fair. They worked. I mean, they've worked perfectly that way. Yes. Oh, yeah. Anyway, sorry, Goodwill. It's okay. They aren't hurting. No, they're hurting in that they don't have enough employees to handle all the huge amounts that people have getting getting out of their house everybody COVID purging their stuff. I've had to wait in lines for Goodwill and the the dirty secret of goodwill is they are a for profit company. Oh, they're not donating that money to anything other than themselves. So I've got a friend who works for a competing group and she has let it be known quite extensively that we are not write a for profit. They are a for profit, you should donate to us. Sounds like okay. Oh, last time I couldn't I tried three different Goodwill's couldn't get it to any of them. They just closed shop and we're like no, we're not accepting. So I did go to valley village. So yeah, there you go. You guys brand new on shutter is a movie called The sadness. Oh, god. Okay. It is. I won't say from what region of Asia it is because I can't remember. For sure. But it is super gory, creepy. My anxiety was spiking throughout it. It's a it's a zombie type. A story of these, something gets loose and this young couple who are saying goodbye to each other in the morning, and I'll see you after work and everything during the course of the day this this, I'm not even sure how it's passed along. This madness takes over people and they start just brutally attacking people fighting their faces off or stabbing them or driving cars into them. And and it's it's got super, this will trigger the shit out of a lot of people. It's got super horrific rape scenes and you know, on men and things like that, and I watched it. And it's really this young couple trying to get back to each other in the middle of all this going on. It is the feel bad movie of the year. I did like it i i was just kind of blown away by how visceral and scary it was scary. And and then very sad. At the end of the name not exactly a happy ending. I would say yeah, the sadness probably refers to you walking out of theater after you've seen this movie. It's like the people that complained about the way John Dies at the End ends. Yeah. I've read the title. Anyway, I it is a very good movie. It is just it is quite an experience brand new on shutter one all sorts of awards when it was in film festivals. Yeah, that sounds incredible. And also like something that I won't watch for a little bit. Right. But I'll get it does it does it feel like the happening but done, right? No, it feels I mean, it's it's structured like a zombie movie, except there's there's something going on. That's like an evil that takes over people because their eyes turn black. And they start smiling while they're doing all of this horrific stuff. And it's just it's just I thought it was amazing. There's a scene where the president of whatever country this is, gets on the air and is telling everybody to please calm down. And you can see the change happening in him as he's telling them to do this. And then he immediately kills the person next to him. You know, this is all on live TV. And everybody's like in a bar watching this and they're all like and then it's almost like an infection that when you see something horrible happened, you you start kind of piling on, and I don't know, it did definitely affect me. Um, well, I thought I much later. Totally. Film In the theater was really inspired by our Nicolas Cage. Oh, I thought you're gonna say Sophie's Choice. You know, much lighter film. Just go deep. Yeah, I went and saw the unbearable weight of massive talent. Oh, I would like to hear your reveal. It was delightful. I had such a good time. Like Pedro. I loved him in this movie. Like he actually stole the show even from my cage. It's a film about Nick Cage being Nick. It's so so lovely. i It's not a perfect film. I would say there's plenty to be irritated with I guess maybe plot wise or I don't know but I just had such a good time. I just the whole watching these two men become you know, good friends and best friends and have to go through some really torturous plot. Reasons to be mad at each other was very silly, but at the same time, just great. I loved it. It started with I haven't seen it yet. But for sure. Plus in the cage. And then in the trailer, you've got that scene where they're going over the wall. And the guy just walks around the house. Like if you're expecting a perfect movie, you're watching the wrong film, but damn that looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun to watch. I think it was so much fun. So much fun to watch and I'm really glad to hear that gone further back much further back than when you just talked about Buck Rogers TV show. Oh wow. Kino Lorber whatever you have their second name is entire boxset the movie and the series and stuff. I've watched the movie in the first five or six episodes now. It's fun 70s TV shows so it's got its problems. But along with it, I bought a companion book along with that, and the guys I can't you had Star Wars which was about high adventure and Battlestar Galactica, which was about questing to find a place Buck Rogers is about six and I really obviously hadn't thought about that so much the original first time I watched it but watching it back on guys not wrong. In researching the show he really lies he kept thinking, you know, it'd be talking a lot about Gil Gerard and all that stuff. But everybody talked to one talk about Aaron gray. Of course. Yeah, a lot of first crushes. And I'm sure she does. She's still I don't know, if she's still doing it for a long time. Of course she did. Conventions and signed and stuff. And so many guys said that to her, her son said, you need a shirt that says, Yeah, I know I was your first. But and she wrote the introduction. And it's a very nice introduction really delightful. She actually didn't want to do the film or the show originally. And sort of was well give it a shot if you like it. And keep going if you don't well recast your role. And obviously she liked it. But I mean, it only ran two seasons, so it didn't run really long. But yeah, Jamie Lee Curtis, and one of the episodes, you've got marquee posts, and one of the episodes you've got Oh shit, what's his name? I know Gary Coleman shows that reach that one yet. Oh, Jack Palance. Oh, nice. I mean, it's just full if you watch any kind of 70s or 80s show this. This, like their entire episodes full of people going, Oh, I recognize every guest cast whatever it is show. But it looks fantastic. Holy shit. Now it's fun. So I remember loving it. As a kid. I am a little surprised you liked it so much. You wanted to get this boxset and a book? Yeah, I remember really liking it as a kid. And I never revisited it. I don't think I don't think I've watched it since I originally watched on TV. And so I was like, well, it was it was released to like $80. And as flipping through Amazon, it was on sale for 30 Oh, well, when that happens. You're supposed to text me. Just so I know. That now. $30 seems like a deal. I remember catching up with it on Netflix many many years back. And just realizing how much my dad loved me that he would let me watch this very, very stupid show. But of course all the jiggling boobs, I'm sure what helped. Yeah. Well, I watched something that is streaming on TV now brand new. And it you know, it's one of those things where we've been making fun of Bruce Willis and then we Yeah, and you're like, Oh man, I feel horrible for making fun of him doesn't make the movies he's made lately any better. But I decided to check out a brand new one called corrective measures. not heard anything about this. It is based on a comic book, but it's based on a comic book from a you know, fourth or fifth tier comic company. I think it's blue water that won't really Bellingham. have it on good authority. Those guys are assholes. Not only does this Bruce Willis in a very minor part that he clearly shot in one day. But it also has Michael Rooker, which was actually the reason I decided to come on now. Michael Rooker, I'll watch just about anything he's in. And he also clearly shot his parts in one day, this is about a, it's kind of a cool idea. So that also helped. This is about a bunch of super villains in a in a super villain prison, who are plotting to break out. And I was like, this would have made a really great big budget movie with a bunch of, you know, current actors or even better actors who played bad guys in the Marvel movies or something like that. But even uh, Bruce Willis and Michael Rooker have scenes together where it's clear that they were not there at the same time. So they're at different parts of room talking to each other. And I'm like, that room doesn't even look like the same room. They're in because background of the wall that Bruce is standing against does not look like the background of the wall that Michael Rooker, I guess, I guess that place could have one brick wall and the rest would just be a regular, you know, painted wall. And I'm sure, but I it's not good, but it was kind of nice to see Bruce is fine in it. He's got very little dialogue. He's probably being fed it through his earpiece and all that stuff, but I don't know he's one of those guys that when he passes, we are all going to look back on a you know, a pretty great collection of movies there. Yeah. This one won't be in there. But five or six years will be probably less spoken about but there will be plenty to talk about that. Yeah, I mean, unbreakable and the first to die hard movies. You know, a pulp fiction, some of that stuff where he really came back like Think we're gonna look back on all that stuff very fondly. So I went and saw the northmen which is the new is it rot? Roger Eggers, Robert. Robert Eggers movie and man is, it's visually incredible, like very stunning to look at you just talking about Skarsgard when you say that is not hurt, does not hurt. Everyone in that movie is beautiful to stare at. Even covered in mud even especially covered in mud, law, lava, you know, there's all kinds of stuff you can throw up to a person. So tell me this is someone who was so so on the witch and didn't even bother with the lighthouse. Am I going to make this movie? No. Oh, oh, wow. Okay, so I'm trying to figure out if I like his movies, and because I loved the witch. Yeah. And then the lay House came out and I was I felt really distanced from it. Like, it seemed like a good film. But like, what, I don't know the story was just not engaging me in the right way. So I could tell it was beautiful. I could tell things were based off paintings and folklore and all this stuff, but it just wasn't credibly well acted incredibly put together, but nothing going on, even by comparison to like the witch, which felt like almost an hour. Fast moving film. Oh, totally. Yeah. And this is in that same vein, like it's incredible. Look at lots of stuff going on. But the story is very, very surface level. Like there's not much beyond what you're finding out in the trailer. There's like three sentences. He says, that's all you need to worry about. There's not a lot of revenge story, right? Yeah. And especially the Lion King or what is that? Hamlet? Hamlet? Yeah, it's handling. It's 100% just Viking Hamlet. Okay, so that's it my brother had well, I mean, yeah, but it's just that basic. I gotta go kill this guy doesn't have the poor you're kind of moments or anything? No, there's no intent. There's no deep intelligence to this character. He's just a brute. Brutal instrument. And that's it. So it I don't know, there's there's some interesting stuff with Bjork and like with Yeah, okay. Yeah, I didn't know she was she isn't it? Yeah, she's like a kind of spirity witch thing. She's also in the trailer. But like, you haven't watched? The trailer looks cool. I mean, it looks incredible. It's gorgeous. Yeah, it is. It is a gorgeous movie. I don't want to say it's, it's obviously a great movie. I just don't know that. I like this kind of movie. Is it long? Yeah. I can't remember. It felt. So it could be long, but it may not be I know it's already made me feel Yeah, the story Yeah, exactly. Like when you're just waiting for the next thing to happen in the next thing that happened and the next thing happened it just started to feel kind of alone. Awesome battle scenes. Couple. Okay. Look, good fight scenes. anything supernatural going on? You said she's a witchy. There's like a couple touches about the same level as in I don't know, if you saw the Green Knight. It's got kind of a similar level of other worldliness, where it's like you see characters or you see things happen by I don't know that. There's definitely magic stuff going on. But it's not all the time. It's just little touches here and there. Here's how I feel about Robert Akers, I don't want him to do anything too good. Because then he'll just get yanked dune into a Marvel movie or something like that. Right. And I think that it's important that we have these directors doing this kind of stuff. Yeah, for as long as we can, because it's clearly going to be very few and far between as we go forward. Yeah, absolutely. I think it's an important movie to exist right now. For sure. Like, we need these artsy movies. We need these like, thoughtful, you know, somebody who cares about Shakespeare enough to do something like this. But just for me, it's just a totally, totally personal thing. I'm still trying to wrap my head around whether I actually like his films, as in I'm definitely not getting any real enjoyment. But no, I mean, as in like, I'm not feeling any. I'm like writing I'm digging myself into such a hole. But like, it's, it's incredible. And I can enjoy the fact that it's incredible and beautiful, but I'm not feeling anything out of it. So let's also keep in mind you went to film school in Britain, right? Yeah. And your favorite movie last year was Spider Man. No way home. Yeah, so those two things feel desperate and like not telling a story. Oh, I think they tell a story. Oh, good lord. I don't know. I like plenty of artsy films like maybe I like them less. Maybe it's just COVID Hey this is COVID brain I just can't do it anymore. I didn't want to be sad I don't want to have to sit there and think a lot oh well I have got the perfect movie for you then. Oh sadness. I watched Jungle Cruise oh my god just the rock yes the rock and I am so curious Emily Blunt and that one yeah it's a terrible movie but is it it's fun to watch but man it is get yourself altered in whatever state you prefer. I would recommend first you know drink or smoke or whatever your alteration of choices to relax and enjoy a movie because I mean Emily Blunt and the rock are a lot of fun. And nothing happens that you can't see coming for line one but the rocks the rock. If you enjoy him, you're gonna enjoy it. Emily Blunt is also fun. So it's it's ultimately incredibly forgettable if you really want to watch a jungle movie with the rock. I would definitely go back to Jumanji. But this is fun. I'm glad I'm not upset. I watched it by any means. I'm trying to figure out you know how much I love the rock. Oh, yeah, I'm trying to figure out why I'm not interested in this movie at all. Is it because it's Disney? Wow. It's based on our Ryan, did you watch the likes of Jumanji films? Yeah, you might. I hate Kevin Hart. But, but I like that. Yeah, it's Jumanji super, super light. Sort of like if you took Jumanji and the filmmakers wanted to do. Emily Blunt is kind of an Indiana Jones character but they don't quite pull it off. But it's still fun. I want I don't know this all sounds like stuff that I should like. And for some reason. I mean, it's right there on Disney plus for me. Yeah, that's probably Yep. Oh, look, the rock. Yeah, sounds like something I should watch with my mom. I bet. Have you been watching the new season of young rock? I watched a few episodes haven't gone back to it yet. Because I watched it. With the mind's eye. Oh, this looks like a fun sitcom. It's not. It's it's a dramedy. Yeah, I think, moments, but there's some, the casting is wild. It's fun to watch. It's just one of those that might Oh, I'll come back and watch this. At some point. The rock is in a lot more of this second season. Oh, but he's starting to look weird. Oh, and I don't know what it is. Is he doing surgeries? I don't I don't think it's that, but his face is definitely changing. And it could just be I mean, what we have no idea how old he is right? He's probably 76. And finally, finally starting to look as agent. I don't know what it is. But he's starting to look just a little weird, because I remember there was a point where I thought he was very handsome. And then he kind of, like, transcended into just like God level, he was just so awesome to look at the year like I can't even tell if he's good looking anymore. Now he is past into, I think he's not good looking. And he's looking a little weird. If he's doing the Stallone, sports Omega thing where it started off one way and then become the elder statesman of acting as he could just be when you're in, you know, your late stages of middle age, that you should not be jacked. Yeah, yeah. When you start to see like the muscles kind of atrophy and like, yeah, there's a certain point where he doesn't it's just you can't make it happen in the same way. He, it also could be that this is a TV show. So they don't have the budget to you know, light him and touch him touch him up digitally and all that I'm really looking forward to black Adam, you know, and because I've seen the trailer for that, and he looks amazing in that so Exactly. Yeah, he looked good in this one. Yeah, yeah. All right. Why don't we take a little break so I can fan myself off about the rocks. And when we come back, we'll talk midnight movie. Close Encounters of essentialist kind visit us at midnight interlude now open to singles and couples every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights couples only Wednesday, Fridays and Saturdays.

Yes, it was a choice. Yes. Some of the craziness and wildness of midnight movies is not where I went with this at all. It's funny because when you suggested this I was like how the fuck do I know if it's been a midnight movie and you were nice enough to provide us both a list of very helpful midnight movies or something else like okay yeah that's it when I thought about it that's exactly what I thought well shit so i Oh, well I found one all right. Now started with one with a lot of people consider the original one of the movies that kicked off midnight movies in the early 70s 1972 is the harder they come 121234 I'm looking for work I can do anything in anything I could make a record I guess you want to go on big work for $10 a week for the rest of my life. I run a die CD she might be a chance remember I control this business CD I mean you get $20 For the record $20 that don't sound right resistance you didn't believe me? Natalie. I was going to be famous one day make sure you're not waiting when? Between the day? Never heard of it is that's rotten tomatoes at 89 Critics 82 crowd and directed by Perry henzel. Who did no place like home and no place like home or Redux. I'm trying to think now that I'm thinking about this is this blaxploitation sort of Yeah. Fred? Jimmy Cliff is the main star in it. Maybe I have seen this. It's a very regular Jim Kelly. No, oh, maybe not that. I'm in such a ride with you. I will just continue interrupting you and not let you talk about it. Yeah, we'll get there eventually. It was also written by Perry henzel. And he wrote the other films that he directed. Also written by Trevor de Rhone who did milk and honey surfer Rasta and one love to have that with you. We'll start with Jimmy Cliff. And if you're a reggae fan, you know exactly who that is. He also was in the movie club paradise apparently. won by the broken lizard guys. Oh, but in that club dread. Paradise because it Club Dread. Okay, very different from that. Damn, that would have been funny. Anyways, and a whole bunch of music videos. Why? Because he's a musician. First, Janet Bartley who's in a TV version of Black Christmas. Some lot of stuff you probably haven't heard of. Carol Bradshaw no place like home No Place Like Home redex and 21 episodes of Runaway Bay. I don't know. These are a whole bunch of people you haven't seen much of basically. And the movie of course opens with a strong reggae song as he's driving, going on a bus and driving into his to see his grandmother I believe and they run into a truck blocking the same bridge. And I don't really even rebirth. They showed how they resolved the problem. That's okay. So he arrives in town to tell I believe he's telling his grandmother that her daughter died. And you'll understand as I continue on why I worded it that way. His grammar he's worried he's going to turn to try if he said is in Jamaica? The film is loosely based on a famous 1940s criminal. So odds are strong. It's kind of fun because they go, Hey, let's go watch a movie. They go in there watching hey, I know that movie Django. From there, he tries to go get a job, but it he has no skills. He cannot get hired for anything. But the soundtrack continues to be pretty strong with some nice reggae music playing throughout as he's looking around and very weird scene walks through the gate of what looks like a rich house and just walks up to a lady reading a book there and asked her if he needs any she needs any gardening work or stuff and she's completely casual doesn't mind like no, we're good. Thanks. No, just leave. And he leaves and she stands up and yells who left the gate open it up. This is what early 70s The it was shot in Jamaica. First full film production be shot in Jamaica. Oh, cool. So the shots of the poverty and the buildings there. Wow. I'm really incredibly well shot. At while he's looking around. He stumbles into a church and sees this woman singing in a choir. So you know, a high lady likes the girl woman that turns out to be the daughter of a preacher. Of course, the preacher doesn't like that he's trying to become a reggae musician, as well as trying to find any job. At this point, I'm pretty much realizing this movie is definitely more of a slice of life sort of film. We're not really looking at a structured movie. And there are a lot of scenes of proselytizing by the preacher and the choir singing and stuff there for a little while the metal goes away. He runs interpret producer and says, hey, I can sing. And they first of all, we're doing tryouts when we're doing tryouts. I don't know, maybe tomorrow, maybe sometime next week, just come back. I don't think they're that interested. The he ends up working for a little while in a repair place near where the preacher and His Church are. And this of course, gets in closer contact with the doctor and the preacher gets upset with him. You know how those scenes work is very Footloose. He does. Beat flesh after he quits. He beats the shit out of the guy that was running the garage and cuts him all up and stuff goes to jail. And instead of serving time he gets switched, like beaten with a cane for a few times. Wait. Oh, okay thing. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Oh, Jesus still a thing? Yeah. So places a big and on purpose. 80s or 90s. There's a big thing when a American or somebody got busted down there. caned and, yeah, US was against, like, don't do that. But also don't go to a foreign country and do something illegal. And that seems like the first step. Yes. Unless you're in North Korea and just take a poster and then they murder. Yeah. That's not good. So he gets through that and has the joy of recovering for that for very little time. But it did seem kind of brutal, at least the way they pertain it. And if he auditions for the guy, by singing the song, the namesake of the movie, the harder they come. And the producer of course, like, Well, alright, this is money. And here's where he learns that movie producers can be scum. Already he bought he tries to sell he tries to buy the movie off of the song off him for $20. And of course, he says no, his character's name. Ivanhoe. Ivanhoe says, No, I'm not going to take that. And then tries to take the song to DJs radio stations, all that of course, this producer owns all of them. He cannot get his song played anywhere, unless this guy's representing him. So he goes back to him and sells InDesign for 20 bucks. Which of course leads him to selling weed. Maybe there's Jamaica. There's, there's cliches in there. And that goes somewhat poorly for him goes really well for a little while. And then his song becomes a big hit and kind of wants to figure out a new way to do a new song. But the the original story this is based on the guy kind of became a cult hero in Jamaica because he killed a bunch of cops. Ah, and so that's where this guy does end up killing a bunch of jobs. And I just got to deal with the consequences of that. So this is, as you can tell from the description. Pretty straightforward film Not what you would think it'd be a midnight movie. Is it at all like a moralistic? But like there's a lot of Tyler Perry movies that are like, see how bad they were? No, not at all. This is all you just following Ivanhoe through his. I think he's in damn near every scene of the movie. There's a couple with a preacher into the daughter when he gets angry with her. But he is he's the movie Jimmy Cliff is the movie in this for this. But I have some notes and jury about what happened and why that ended up as a midnight movie I was gonna ask. So it hit the US 1973 and really didn't do very well at all. It had a couple of weird things going for it. It has spoken in a local dialect. That is very hard to understand. And ended up being the first major US English speaking film that had subtitles when it was released. Oh my god, that's so good. Which is why I actually ended up turning on part of the way through which is why that opening I'm going I think he was telling his grandma that his accents, not too bad, but a lot of the peak because they used all local talent. So a lot of the people they're having really, really thick accents. Same thing if you watch like Australian movie shot way back. People who live way off the grid or some Appalachian films, it's just at accents gets so deep. But it ended up it was so successful as a midnight movie. It ended up playing for eight years at the Orson Welles Cinema in Cambridge, like every weekend for eight years. And it stood out because I said it wasn't a weird head trip like El Chapo was or it wasn't revival like Reefer Madness, and it wasn't John Waters style film. It's a regular movie. It must have been very odd as an midnight film. That producer hired, in fact tried to find Jimmy Clift to play the role based on an album cover. He saw photos of him at the front. It's like Oh, interesting looking guy turned it over. He looks completely different on the back of this album is like this might be somebody who can and he is really good. The film is full of very solid, naturalistic performances, which can be not great acting necessarily, but has that feel of a reality has that feel of a documentary? So it's pretty successful film. When Jimmy was touring, and it was playing at Cambridge, whenever he came through the Boston area, he would go to wherever was playing, and show up and there's a series of photos that's taken of him in the film with some guns and this this like thing that he sends to the newspaper, he jumps up on stage, not telling anybody he's there and gets into those poses. That's that's kind of cool. It doesn't have the greatest sounding catch for tagline, tagline, demo, loot demo shoot demo whale and shantytown. Ah, guys, okay. And also rebel with a cause. Highly used, but the better. This and this film more so even the Bob Marley has contributed to the explosion of reggae music isn't seven days. The soundtrack was a massive hit. So there were the soundtrack put out company estimates they sold a few million copies of a movie that nobody saw. So it was a huge, huge hit in that way. Oh, I missed one of the taglines Be warned this is a movie. This is more than a film made for lovers of reggae much more. They know who their audience is with a piece in his hand he takes on the man. He makes women and the charts and is on top with both. Like that one. They're probably not though, okay. It was the first feature film produced entirely in Jamaica, loosely based on a Martin Raboy rankings character who was a gangster in the 40s but had nothing to do with music and nothing to do with drug dealing. Very loosely based. The harder they come is if you don't by the way, if you've heard this song and you don't like it, do not watch this movie. A lot. Part of the comments also come out and been covered a lot by a lot of people and was ranked number 350 on Rolling Stones magazine of 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. Wow, sorry, what is the lead actress went on to marry Michael Manley who became them Prime Minister of Jamaica. Nice way to go. Yes. All his previous acting experience for Jimmy was in school productions. So he came forth and did all right. The film was a gigantic success in Jamaica because it was in Jamaica. Yeah. So many local people were involved with it that it did really well. Roger Corman was the guy who picked it up to try to release it did alright until I hit the bin night screen obviously. There has been a novel published about it they've adapted it to screen in the Theatre Royal Stratford East in the UK. overseas with a script overseen by the original writer so it's got a it's got legs still around. And pretty good. What do you guys thoughts on reggae music? I think I know yours. You know, anytime I only ever hear it when I'm in like music shops, and it's on in the background. I enjoy it when I hear it. I don't think I would seek it out. Yeah, you're a fan. I like some of the stuff Yeah. Okay. This is a little more reggae light. The harder they come is not quite as Bob Marley Spears sings with a lot of accent. Jimmy doesn't seem with nearly as much accent so it's different sounding than you're automatically Claire Shieff cliche thinking of reggae but it is definitely yeah yeah cannot stand it don't watch this well. closest I can get to it is like the police which always pissed me off guys like can I love this song? Why the reggae beat I think I find it pretty lyrical and enjoyable. I don't know. It's soothing. Yeah. Okay, well I'll jump into my midnight movie. Thank God you shared that list was a total loss like how am I gonna forget? All right. And so on that list luckily was the John Carpenter from I have not talked about Whoa, I think hardly at all on this show. And that's the 1974 movie Dark Star future mankind has conquered the stars he moves out to the endless interstellar reaches of the universe and Advanced Exploration a new breed of pioneer must seek out unstable planets and destroy them Dr. Sequence began headed back you are on the mission of the 21st century planets measures Dark Star 20 us in space 1 million light years from Earth their job is to clear a path for the colonization of space back home circle it used to be a great circle traveled in an infinite universe with mind melting excitement from beyond the stars returned to the Bombay immediately but I have received the operational signal Are you with me I wish I had more time because I'm as detonate. Paul, manna Paul This is dude oh can you hear me? Dark Star Lost in Space. They are loose. His first first horror film which you know was was basically a student film that got some production going behind it and ended up as a Somebody said it was a really, really good student film and a really, really bad feature film. This has a rotten, Rotten Tomatoes of 78% for critics and 65% for audience. I'm surprised either of them are that high frankly. Not for my opinion, but just for what this movie is. It's written, directed and of course the music is by John Carpenter. It's co written slash edited slash visual effects supervisor slash starring Dan O'Bannon, who has been in 34 things or have been written wrote 34 things including alien, a segment and heavy metal. Total Recall, screamers returned the living dead. This is one of the few times he actually acts in a film aside from he also acted in return the living dead. He's like one of the mains. So he plays a character called pinback. We also have it's just a couple of dudes in a spaceship. So there's like maybe six people all together, including like voices and other TV screens with people on him. So we also have Drea package who plays Toby. He's been in two things. This in bloodbath. This is an ongoing theme, Brian Narelle. Who's please Lieutenant Doolittle. He's actually pretty good. He's been in seven things, including Frankenstein through the eyes of the monster as four different roles in that film. Bingo in Mali 26 episodes, and a bunch of other stuff I had not heard of like space ninjas and the journeyman. How can a home who plays boiler who's only ever been in this, and Nick Castle actually plays the voice of the bouncy ball alien. He's got an uncredited voice credit for this. He's the director of Last Starfighter major pain. He's written 14 things including Escape from New York hook. And an upcoming movie. Apparently Plissken is coming out soon. So I don't know what that means. I know. All right. Does that mean I get another action figure? Because my shelf is waiting. So this film, this edition that I bought is a Blu ray Special Edition. I think it's out by shout factory, but I can't say for sure. I definitely bought it by a shout factory. It starts with an intro signed by Dan O'Bannon, that explains basically what you're about to experience. It's really interesting. It's a long. So it just kind of has these credits that go up of hey, by the way, this was meant to be a comedy. I say that because a lot of people don't realize it was a comedy. And when when it was bought it showed it 50 different theaters. And him and carpenter ran around the night of it screening to see like what the audience reactions were, and was talking the ushers going, Hey, it's okay. If we pick our heads and we made this film, we want to see what the audience thinks and assures, like, what audience, they're really out. Yeah, there were like five people in there like nobody got it. Nobody liked it. Which makes sense because it's a student film. He said he was totally traumatized. And so when he made his second film Alien, he just took the exact same story of Darkstar but made it scary. For similar, I should say similar. It's a student film for USC, basically, but it ended up with a 55k budget. This is all in his notes that I'm not this isn't trivia. This is like what he's saying at the start. It took three and a half years to make. It was a labor of love. He ends it with one one character is played by four different actors. Guess which one? One at least one actor is on LSD the whole time. Guess which one finds Dan O'Bannon. So um, pretty, pretty fun way to kind of intro it like I'm usually not a fan when, especially when directors have like a little Hello, you're about to watch my movie. And especially David Lynch, you've got the or you've got the settings wrong. You need to redo your settings. I want you to all wait as you like it'll love that. But I appreciate this. Since it was just written it wasn't Emily talking at screen. So this movie is a sci fi satire. It focuses on a group of scientists whose mission hippie scientists, I should say, whose mission is to destroy unstable planets. They're 20 years into this mission and we find them on a failing ship with a dead captain who is frozen on ice but occasionally will still give it advice if you ask him. He talks like an old man though so he can't like really remember. I don't know what they're using as him talking, but he's like, I can't remember guys. I'm not really sure where You're supposed to, I don't know, I gotta think about this. It's very weird. Earth is sending the messages back and forth, talking about how they're on Earth have thrown them parades, and they're doing all this stuff for them. And they're really big heroes, but they can't actually send them any supplies, like anything to fix the radiation damage they got on their ship, because Congress is having some issues, and there's budget cuts. So there's a lot of kind of hypocrisy there. They're like, please keep sending messages, though. We love hearing it. So we start off with them sending a bomb number 19. Down to kill an unstable planets. It's interesting because that they put the bomb down and they it's like, underneath their ship floating there. And they're gonna blow up this planet for literally no reason that we are really clear on. And they're like, hey, bomb, how's it going down there? It was like, Yeah, I think I understand my mission. Okay, great. Well, um, you know, five minutes, if you have any questions, just let us know. No, I think I got it. So there's like a lot of really weird humor in this. The characters are each very much their own thing. So Toby, who's this guy who hangs out in this sort of bubble window on the top of the spacecraft, he's just kind of sits there like gazing at the stars, they all have giant beers and long hair, by the way, so and they all say man a lot. He's really seems like a space cadet. And, obviously, and he's sleeping a lot. He's not he never wants to leave his bubble. But when there is an issue with the ship, he's one of the only ones who actually tries to fix it. We have Doolittle who's going through some kind of existential crisis, he has set up the sort of musical instrument out of cans and water glasses that's almost like a piano, but also like water, glass music. And he just goes and plays on that whenever he's like, depressed and doesn't want to talk to anybody. Boiler who's kind of the makeshift captain of this whole situation. He's a super loose cannon, who just wants to blow everything up. He's long since given up on any kind of interesting mission they might have had, where like, they could be out discovering life, every time he has the option of discovering life or blowing up another planet. He's like, I just want another planet to blow up. What the fuck are you doing? Don't give me this other information. And he's always looking for the gun to just shoot random stuff in the spaceship. And then we have pinback. Dan O'Bannon, who is sensitive, yet very angry that no one is taking him seriously. He gets into. He's the one who decided to get the alien on board, that will be a big feature of this particular film. He wanted a pet slash mascot for the ship. And when they found it, he thought it was really cute. It's just a big beach ball with feet. So just make that very clear. There is no attempt at trying to get everything in this is like that's an egg carton. That's a muffin tray. Like no joke, it is very clearly low budget. So same with this, they look like they strapped some chicken feet onto the bottom of it. So he gets mad at everybody else. Because they never they don't even remember his birthday. So he goes down to feed the alien, which he's sick of. And he doesn't even like it anymore. And it's not even cool anymore. And then it attacks him. And they get into this sort of ongoing Bugs Bunny esque set of trials and tribulations where he's trying to get it back in the cage. And it's kind of trying to kill him but in humorous ways. So at one point, he ends up in an elevator shaft hanging on for dear life as it's like running up to him and bouncing against him and he's going out and then he tries to tickle him to make him like, fall down in the elevator shaft. It's very cartoony. They end up in a meteor storm. And there's a laser malfunction and their next bom bom 20 is told to go off but not really like the computer is also talking a lot. It's a very sexy female voice. So bummed when he's like, Okay, I'm gonna go off and they're like, no, no, no, no, no, no, don't don't do that. Please. We that was a mess up and it's like, oh, okay, and it goes back in. And then something else happens and it comes down. It's like, okay, I'm gonna go off. Like, no, no, no, it was also an accident. Okay, comes back in. And then the third time it happens where they actually are about to use it. But then something else goes wrong on the ship. And they need it. They need to stop it because they can't actually leave. They'll be stuck with the bombing on it. The bombs like No, no, no, I'm going off. I'm sorry. I'm done playing this game. I am not leaving. And so of course, I'm Doolittle who's having a major existential crisis of his own, decides to go on down and have a little conversation with it and talk some philosophy. He's like, how do you know the signal that you're getting is real How do you know your real What do you really know about the world? And he's like trying to talk it down. And yeah, that's the kind of movie we're in. Like, it's just like like a man. This is literally waiting for Godot in space. It's just some board dudes who really don't know what they're doing and why they're doing it trying to make up a reason to exist. It ends of course, with a famous poster that we see it, let's just say 20 does decide perhaps to just go ahead and do his own thing and go off. And so you end with Doolittle heading towards a planet. And he's had a lot of talk about how he misses surfing and he wishes his board was there just so he could wax. He just misses surfing. And Toby is floating off in space in the opposite direction towards an asteroid belt. They're each kind of going to have their own fate. But it's a really nice poetic ending, because there's like space debris. So do little grabs one of the space degree debris pieces, and he's like, I'm going to, I'm going to ride this into the planet like a surfboard. And so that's what most of the posters are, is him, you know, going off on his own to tell these like, you're going to be a shooting star. He's like, Yeah, and then Toby ends up being in the asteroid belt, and he's like, Hey, man, I'm talking to asteroids. They're going to take me with them. I'll see you again one day. It's fucking nuts. This movie is I love it, because of course I do. Isn't definitely a bad movie. It has no money. It has no real plot. It's just dudes talking and being weird and weird shit happening. It is a really good student film. There. And because of the people involved, it's got great lighting, great shot choices, really detailed sets, even though it's made out of like junk. Just a lot of fun decisions going along. It's seven years as fuck. Lots of psychedelic colors flashing bleeps and bloops. Man beards long hair. When you say it's a student film, is it really a student film? Are they in? It was it was a USC student film and then they kept working on it. So then, I can't remember who put some money behind it afterwards. It might be in my trivia, but they put like an extra. Like, I'll get there actually. Oh, no, no, I can say it was a student film with a $1,000 budget. When the distributors showed interest, the budget was raised to $6,000. And then, once they put in an additional 15 minutes to make it into a feature film, that's when Jack Harris obtained to theatrical distribution, incest insisted on several cuts reshoots and compensated for this, which is why Dan O'Bannon was like it basically wasn't the same film anymore. We had the world's most impressive student film, and it became the world's least impressive professional film. And so yeah, it was originally going to be 68 minutes and then they expanded to 83 minutes, so there was just money that was getting chucked at it but like, probably shouldn't have been. But anyway, this this film, I love the sexy computer voice. There's like random porn just like stuck up on the walls like it's really much very much like a dudes made like a fun space movie. I think the beach ball stock can get pretty intensive moments, you can see where Dan O'Bannon is going to end up going. There's like some dark moments in there where you're like, if this wasn't a comedy, this would be kind of fucked. I love the ending. It should be really depressing, but it's not. And they had a couple of scenes they put back in for this edition and I don't think they needed to they could have cut them. They were not doing much for it. So um, a little bit of trivia. Ron Cobb drew the original design for the dark store Darkstar ship on a napkin while eating it. I hop the double rows of large buttons on the bridge consoles are ice cube trays illuminated from beneath. Like I mentioned, there's a space chestplate made out of a muffin tray. There's another backpack made from Styrofoam packing material. There's a vacuum hose and there may be a box of a TV set involved. patches on all their suits are from the California Army National Guard. Cookie nap GOT THE COMPUTER VOICE gig because she answered the phone. She answered the phone and they were like impressed by it. Three pilots who played Toby had an heavy accent. Eventually all of his dialogue was redubbed allegedly by John Carpenter himself. The cinematographer Douglas Knapp and John Carpenter love the sound of the computers voice. Oban sorry obviously my notes are messed up somewhere in here. O'Bannon felt that with a proper budget, the premise of the alien creature stalking the crew on a spaceship could be genuinely tense movie he was right. And apparently both directors l 100. Jennifer outski sorry, not gonna say the right and Ridley Scott had both seen Darkstar and that's why they got involved with them, which I'm shocked that they saw this movie, a computer screen flashes. Fuck you Harris during the film. This was a message directed towards Jack H. Harris, the producer who annoyed John Carpenter during production. So supposedly the offensive message was put up as revenge. And it was bought by Brian's Branston productions and open in 50 theaters, has a lot of different versions, which is something I alluded to before. So the like I said, it was a 45 minute student film, and then it became 50 minutes. And then Ken was released to 68 and then expanded to 83. So every addition you get is a little bit different. Is there just the original student film available? As a cut? I believe there is on one of them. So I see her in the director's cuts might have it on there. No, that's on the laserdisc. There's a special edition. So there should be a special edition that has it. There's a couple of special editions. There's also the hyperdrive edition, which has a feature length documentary on it. And then it has a thermo stellar edition, which is the one I think I have on Blu ray. So I would just check the back. I'm pretty sure they have the original on there. This remake was just like the last covered or movie you hadn't seen. No, I definitely I'd seen this movie before, like one other time. But I it's been a long time. So I wasn't sure if I actually liked it. I mean, you do that thing where you're starting to delve into an explorer director or genre or whatever. And you see things and you're like, I think like, Oh, no. So it was really fun to watch it again. I know. I've never seen this one. I haven't I have not either. I believe I've seen every I think I've seen all of them. Even the ward the ward. No, I watched that one every weekend. No, though, I do have a very short fun story about the ward wheeling. So we've had some donations from my good friend Micah. And for his birthday. One year I sent him a gift which was 1/4 of the CD or DVD of the ward, which I'd broken up into four different pieces and I mailed one to him one to Meteor crater. I mailed one to the lighthouse, and I mailed one to an Antarctic Arctic station with each one wrote a letter about how we have to keep the pieces separate so that they may never reunite. I never heard back from anybody but wow. Okay, I'm just gonna go back a little bit here and let you know that the sadness is a Taiwanese film. Oh, thanks. Yeah. South Korean. Okay, so yes, Eric. Again, thank you very much for providing a list. Yep. Because I was able to look through there and realize I've seen a lot of these movies. And so I was gonna pick one that I hadn't seen and I did. It is called the boxers omen. Thank you 1983 Have you guys seen this is a weird one? Shocking I made a movie that's a weird one. I found it on YouTube fairly decent fairly decent looking version of it, but I could find no budget or box office on it and Rotten Tomatoes critics don't have a rating but the audience has it a 64% Perhaps they understood this movie better than I did. It was directed by chi Hoon quay, the director, the lady professional, the killing snakes and godfather of Canton. It was also written by him and another writer named on set so was 171 writers credits. He wrote Godfather Kenton curse of evil corpse mania. And then it just just a turn of Chinese films and yeah, so 83 So if he's got 171 credits he had to be writing since the 60s maybe wow like that. Starting Philip co 213 credits including shadow mask payment and blood and Mindjet Terminator, which sounds like two things that should absolutely be put together. loom Wei Wang 91 credits he was in the sword stained with royal blood. Also a movie called Young and dangerous and a different movie called sexy and dangerous so hope that those guys are connected somehow. And then come on way who was in for Dragon city ninja and Magnum Thunderbolts a great night okay, the story on this one, this is going to be kind of a difficult movie to encapsulate. It opens during a brutal boxing match between Chun wing and this Thai fighter blue bow bow is played by bolo Yang Bravo, Bloodsport fame. And so Sean wing he has a brother named Shawn Hoon, who was a Hong Kong gangster. Wing wins the fight but then as he's turned his back on Bo o sucker punches him he plays the bad guy in every fucking Yep, he does that exact thing in several films. Yeah. But this time he sucker punches him right in the back of the neck parallel. So when goes is taken to the hospital and everything and whom who is this Hong Kong gangster the next scene is him going to meet the the heads of the organization, the crime organization that he works for. But when he gets there, all of them are killed by this rival gangsters and hyung is abducted. And they have tied him up by his legs and they are dunking his head into a bucket of water and lifting him up, you know, and then basically drowning him and everything but all of a sudden, this this ghost of a Buddhist monk shows up Yes, gives everybody away. Yes. And then starts talking to him and it's like, come come to me and he's like, fuck this runs away. Wing his brother asks him to get revenge on Bobo. So home travels to Thailand, and challenges him to a match. So, meanwhile, he's having these bizarre religious visions and everything. So he goes to a Buddhist temple, and he's seeking information on the visions whereupon he is informed that his coming was prophesied by the temples see subhead. King Xiao Qing shall a statue of King shall is there in the temple we will come to find out this is not a statue. This gold statue is actually King Joe's body. So we find out from one of the monks amongst tells him the story that a year earlier King and traveled to Hong Kong to break apart a gang of black magicians which I love this idea. There's these, these evil magicians that this Buddhist monk has to go and take care of. But but he is assassinated. They're pretty grisly scene. The one of the Muses magicians summons the spiders with stingers on their back end. But these things are hilarious, like puppets, you can kind of tell that on occasion, it is a hand in a hairy glove. And then on other things, perhaps there are some robotics inside them. But this is 83. So the spiders move, not very realistic. When they decide to climb on the guy's face and stick their stingers through his eyes, that part looks very realistic. And I was just like, whoa, what's going on here? I almost use this as my magic spell movie two, because there's all sorts of magic going on in this. It is, it is crazy looking. This movie that colors, it's like, for whatever reason, they're lighting this movie. And the guy's like, Well, how about a bright green light here? Like Well, I mean, it is nighttime. Sure that makes sense. So it just looks fucking bizarre. We find all this stuff out and then kings corpse, which is on display there in the in the statue, it kind of comes alive a little bit and asked swing to become a monk. So he's like, you know, you have been chosen to become my, my student, you are going to defeat the rest of the black magicians, and you will help me achieve immortality. And after very little hesitation. Alright, Grace. I mean, when a corpse asks you to do something, remember, he came here to fight this guy, and instead now has agreed to become a monk. And so after what seems like a very short training period, he's granted these magical powers and ordained a hunter of black magic. I was. I don't quite understand what is happening in this movie, but I'm all in and I hope those spiders make a return. Anyway, he returns to Hong Kong then after not fighting this dude, I'm sure and immediately breaks one of his monk vows by having sex with his girlfriend. It is hilarious. He's been gone for three months or so. He walks into their apartment as she's taking a shower and she's like, the hell have you been? He's got a shaved head now and everything and he's like, I'm a monk. She's like, okay, and he sees her naked in the shower. Right? So he addresses get in there with. She tells him Hey, don't give me any of your STDs. Whoa, you know, he's been off in Thailand for three months. Oh, sure, monks. Guess what, though? They have sex and he is not supposed to. So this is when he finally goes to fight the bad guy boxing. They have this match and he almost loses. Because the the black magic magicians are like casting a spell from afar and they're doing something to the eyes of this corpse and it is making his eyes water and he can't see He's blinded. Basically just like in kickboxer he's fighting follow. And He's blinded and he's swinging. And all this stuff. I was like, they had to just rip this off right from from this movie. But he does eventually win. But he's having these horrible visions he wins immediately jumps out of the ring and runs into the like the dressing room and he stares into the mirror. And all these maggots start spilling out of his eyes. Yeah, another pretty gruesome scene, but it turns out to be just a vision he's having. So he goes back to the the temple and he's telling the guys you know what happened? What happened? All my magical powers and they go, Well, have you broken any of your vows? And he's like that one. They're like, Well, maybe you need to go back to training or something. But of course, as soon as he lied about that, it triggers this magical spell that throws him out of the temple. So now it turns into a completely different movie where he has to go on a quest, and he has to get the ashes of one of the Buddhist monks past selves. Or else the Buddhist Monk will not be able to ascend to immortality Okay, Will he succeed? Oh my god. In the third or fourth movie inside this movie, who knows? This movie is is completely bonkers definitely worth checking out. It's got all of the stuff that we have come to love from the bonkers Asian cinema like lying heads with like tendrils of guts hanging out of them, but then latch on to this guy's face and start squeezing with their tendrils. It's really bonkers. The bad spider puppets are awesome. And the needles and the eyes and stuff and then just just a month bunch of shit. I can find really no trivia about this movie. But I found a lot of information about the makers of this movie and Eric, I know you will know who I'm talking about here. This is a shot Brothers movie. Nice and the Shaw Brothers were rune Mae and Ron Ron Shaw. The company was established in 1958. And it was the largest film production company in Hong Kong operated all the way up to 2011. Over the years, the film company produced around 1000 films, and popularized the Kung Fu genre. Yeah. Rune Misha was a philanthropist who started the Shah Foundation, which was a charitable organization over there. And in addition, he was the chairman and president of several government boards, a patron of many organizations, and as a result won many local and foreign awards for his philanthropic work and contributions to the movie industry in Southeast Asia. But his brother is the one who's really really interesting. So sir Run Run Shah donated billions of Hong Kong dollars to educational institutions in Hong Kong and mainland China. More than 5000 buildings on Chinese college campuses bear his name whoa as the shock College of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He also established the sharp prize for astronomy, life science and medicine and Mathematical Sciences. His other major donations include 10 million British pounds in 1990 to help establish the Run Run Shaw Institute of Chinese affairs at Oxford, and $13 million in United States dollars for disaster relief after the 2008 Sichuan earthquake. So Ron Ron Shaw passed away in 2014, at the age of 106 years old Whoa, damn, this guy lived a long and very good life, became very rich and and gave away a ton of money. A final note on this movie, Jay Seaver from E film critic.com awarded the film four and a half stars writing. The boxers Omen seems like two extremely different movies made into one much as one character is, and I'm not going to spoil one of the more jaw dropping moments of complete insanity that his movie offers up, even though that would still likely leave several dozen for the viewer to discover. It is a downright Strange movie wrapped in something conventional and almost unrelated. A fine midnight movie, if there ever was one. Nice. Wow. So as usual, you guys come up with a topic that I'm like, oh, boy, that I ended up finding something I really, really enjoyed. I really appreciate this. I really love our stupid little gimmick on this podcast. It's very good. It's very good. led to so many interesting films that I probably never would have watched under person. Although I will say anybody who's like sharing room and board with me at the same time does start to get irritated with what do we have to watch now? Including my mom. She's very good, though. She didn't did enjoy watching them and then listening to us talk about it. Oh, good. Well, I was gonna say, Vanessa, that it's your turn, but quite honestly, I'm blinded by this brilliant rock on your finger. What the fuck is going on? Yeah, somebody asked me if I'd like hanging out with him forever. So I said yes. So yeah, so it's, everything's very exciting right now. And the rock is nice. So thank you for that person. Since it's my turn, and this just happened. I think I would like us to talk about wedding horror. I'm picking the Johnny Depp Ember trail. No, too soon, too soon. Yeah, so it doesn't have to actually be at a wedding. But I think if there's wedding talk or engagement, like something very heavily involved, then sounds like it can be as as on the nose is like wasn't a wreck three or as far away as like Spaceballs suddenly steal her away from her wedding. Totally. Really 100% thing. Yeah, although I mean, you can make an argument if you want to do something like Spaceballs, but I think it'd be fun to do horror. Okay. You want to keep it horror. All right. I like that. Yeah. Sounds good. Well, that means then we are coming to the end of the show. We thank everyone who's liking sharing posts. You should you mentioned that mica has donated before. Not recently. Oh, he talked to me about donating more and then he said this subject that he wanted to do and I told him no, because it was too close to something we already did. So we'll probably get a donation from Wow, I'm not sure that that's up to you to say, especially when people are giving us money. We've done plenty of subjects that are similar to subjects we've already it's so similar to me it was disco bass. Tom's if he wants to remain friends with me it is not disco based. Well, we think Micah and everybody who's helping out with the value for value model. Ron and Danny Carlos and remind me who's the crypto gang guy we always see that is liking and sharing our posts all the time, Ryan? Yeah, thank you so much, Ryan.
