Oh, I'm sorry, did I break your concentration somewhere between science and superstition such sights to show you strange aeons. Welcome to strange aeons radio. That's Eric over there. That's Vanessa over there. Hello. I'm Kelly. You guys know that I was going through a bit of a depression for a while. Well, I've gotten past that now. I'm just fucking furious. Okay, how different back to my usual self. In other words, I am so fucking tired of the virtue signaling that that all these social media things have allowed us all to do. If I if I see one more I Voted sticker. Oh. We have really plumbed the depths of what we need accolades for. And it's driving me nuts. I stand against Kanye a you stand against a raving lunatic. Excellent. Most of it well, not all but most of us did. Good for you. It's It's infuriating to me. I'm tired of it. Everything is some kind of virtue signal. And you are allowed to keep your opinion to yourself. Not me obviously because here I am spouting but but fuck off with all your virtue signaling I'm tired of it. You're just tired of it Vanessa You're just jealous because we do mail in ballots here in Washington we don't get I voted stickers that's true. We don't we get this little tear off things that are really lame and it's like our vote I what am I going to do with you and nothing that's all you go in the recycle bin every time. I will say though, this recent week weeks, we have had a fun social media experiment unfold before us in the form of Twitter and making official accounts for $8 Yeah, which have made the world of fun new place. Say Twitter has gone from kind of useful to absolutely useless and pointless very entertaining. Everybody complaining about Elon also fuck off with your like, like it was somehow run by people who are scrupulous before Elon got a hold of it. These are billionaires multi billionaires running this shit quit defending any of them. Well, but they did fire he did fire a lot. The night millionaire I love it, fire them all. Burn it. What a trashy Twitter. Really? It is not gonna It was adorable to see him absolutely bend over for Stephen King. Like, oh, we're gonna charge $20 $20. That's a lot. How about $8? Sure. Well, it tells me he doesn't know what he's doing right now. But I love his idea, you understand that $8 is supposed to verify a person not verify that they're real does not hold them accountable. Now, your name is connected to that account. If you say shitty things, you can be held accountable for it. And I think that's important. He just hasn't figured out how to actually make it work real blue check was before because they would verify you actually were the person you were that you were actually this person through a like a series of checks and shit like that. Now, you could say you're whoever you want to be pay $8 and right, but I don't think that's how it's going to stay. Obviously, that has already ended that it's a problem. So he'll figure something out on this. I don't have a problem with Elon any more than I have a problem with any other multibillionaire, which is they don't live on the same planet as us. So they can't possibly understand what it's like to live like we do, right? Yeah, I mean, anyone who's like a little bit pissy about a situation and decides to buy out the entire company as like revenge. And then fucks over the company quite possibly on purpose. Like it I don't know. I don't have a lot of sympathy or exactly, but we shouldn't have had any sympathy for what it was beforehand is my point. No, I mean, yeah, it was GARBAGE. And I want it all the burn. It is that it is there it is burning next place. I mean, for as much as it could have happened. I don't know. I'm so hardly on it. I only come on for one pitch and discussion, which I enjoy very much if you follow our Facebook page or even Instagram. occasionally they'll be nothing from Vanessa for like a week or two. Suddenly, she shows up, commenting on everything. You know, I'm always like, Oh, the morning, Miss Williams. Join us. You know why it's, I keep engagement alive this way. You know, I keep the conversation rolling by not engaging immediately with it or why not? Let me let me tell you something that didn't infuriate me. But only mostly pissed me off. Okay. I saw confess flach Oh, which is the new Fletch movie? With? What's his name? Don Draper? Yeah, I can't remember his name, right? Probably being about handsomest man on the planet. He's absolutely fine in it. It's actually closer to the books than the Chevy Chase movies were. But the writing of the dialogue was clearly supposed to be written or delivered in a Chevy Chase kind of way. So it would have been perfect for Ryan Reynolds, who this would have been a gigantic hit if Ryan Reynolds had been behind it. But as it is, it's a very watchable, but forgettable movie. I felt really bad because I know that he took a huge cut in his pay to make sure that it could get finished. And he's been fighting for this for a long time. I think that I had read somewhere that Justin Long was originally attached to this and I think he would have been a much better fit for the kind of character that Fletcher is supposed to be a reporter, who's you know, kind of smarmy and sneaks his way into everything. When you're Why can't I remember his name? Don Draper when you're Don Draper, you're not hiding from anybody. Any woman notices you and most of the men notice you just like Jesus Christ. That guy is one handsome son of a bitch. He's not putting on a baseball cap and suddenly he's become somebody else. Jon Hamm. Jon Hamm. Yeah. So watchable if you're bored. Otherwise, I don't think I've seen a single flush film. So a lot of people grew up at the right time. They were 12 when they came out, and so they're the funniest things on the planet. I didn't see it till I was an adult and I was like, This is annoying as fuck. So I'm not a huge flesh fan. But I did like the books well enough. The first couple that I read. Well, I saw as something that has recently popped up I believe it they Roku original movie. Weird the Al Yankovic story I have heard phenomenal times. I'm so glad you're talking about this. I saw you saw this. Awesome. I you know, I am shocked at how well it was constructed for like a biographical story that just goes highly off the rails highly quickly. It's starring Daniel Radcliffe, who does an incredible job. I think this movie was completely wasted on me. Because I don't know anything. Because of all the celebrities. You were like, Is that supposed to be someone I've heard of? No, no, no, I knew all of that. I understood all of the nods and the jokes. I just don't find anything funny. Oh, that's right. I know. I know. I was really disappointed. Like, I could hear you know, my my husband next to me laughing and I was like, Oh, I guess this is supposed to be funny. I never been tested for certain things or you text Richmond. You remember text rich man for the Muppets who couldn't laugh. It was deep guy maniacal laugh. maniacally laugh. I'll tell you this as a person who has a sense of humor. Yeah, I thought it was a goddamn delight. I loved every minute of it. It is so ridiculous. Not one word of it is true. So I really loved how they leaned into the fact that you know, pretty early on you're like, oh, okay, this is not a real life story. Not as good as UHF but right up there. I'd like to see him make some more movies. Yeah, it looks great. The the miracle ability of the most of the Harry Potter people to not have turned into complete design is impressive. And he is one of the most impressive. Yeah, that group Yeah, I'm shocked that they found this little kid with you know, I think he was doing like a stage play at the time. But you know, wonky little kid with big eyes and all of a sudden he's just an incredible actor, even though he never grew to be very tall. He never grew to be very buff and you'd think that would eat away at somebody but no, he's just like fucking owning it. In every turn. I read this mini article just a couple days ago that said he made $86 million off of the Harry Potter movies and that he hasn't spent much of it at all because had wise investing and stuff like that and I'm like good for this guy. Yeah, absolutely. Interview with him and Sandra Bullock and she was talking about her impression of him. She figured Going off history that she's going to have to work with this petulant annoying little shit who's sanctimonious and thinks he is owed everything. He's like he is the most respectful nicest coolest person I've ever met. And Daniel sitting right there incredibly like uncomfortable you totally looking at his shoes and I interview Yeah, he's the kind of like, Oh, thank you. Thank you kind of trying not to like, you know, get too emotional about it. Very cool. Really lovely. Now, let me just also remind you, he's a multi millionaire. He does not live on the same planet us so Fuck him.
