Starting point is 00:04:10 Let's talk about bats. All right, because bats was a fun episode. We had to cut a lot out. And this is a deleted scene from our bat show where we got sidetracked talking about Mr. Beast. Yes, the internet personality. Your name and your question. Hi, I'm Margot, and my question is,
Starting point is 00:04:31 can we just talk about the kid who kept on playing the video game at the diner while his father was being attacked by bats? While his father was thrown across a counter. Like dragged down the, dragged down the, the diner counter. Yeah, like in Superman 2, like it's like, how did he do that? And it's like, and like, here's the version of it
Starting point is 00:04:52 that I would buy, a kid listening to his headphones. Headphones, exactly. And just like, dude, dude, dude, you know, but he's, no headphones on, seemingly he's in a perfect vantage point from a fight. A game being indictment of how video games are turning our kids into fun. Yeah, that kid is four feet from that man that is being killed.
Starting point is 00:05:13 He's right. He's oblivious. He's so into the video game. Yeah. Well, sometimes when I call my kids and they're watching Mr. Beast, it is the same thing. Like, guys, breakfast. Guys, breakfast, guys.
Starting point is 00:05:26 He's giving $11 million to a school of fish, asking them to do better on the AP exams. He's making all the different ethnic groups fight in a giant gladiator's title. And he's going to pay all their medical bills per year. Oh my gosh, he did have a challenge that I found odd. He did his own version of survivor where I think people couldn't pee for 24 hours. Was that it?
Starting point is 00:05:56 No, I would have killed eventually. That's not good. I think that was the one poll where he drew a circle in a big warehouse and saw how long people could stand in the circle. But then every day the circle got smaller and smaller. But then there was a part two and I never could find it on the internet, so I don't actually don't know what happened. I guess someone won. We all love Mr. Beast. We're all going to be working for him in a couple of years. He will end these days. Oh, yes. Yes, the thing.
Starting point is 00:06:25 You are listening to How Did This Get Beast. And we love Jimmy. And Jimmy loves us. How did this get beast? By the way, I just, I just, I just a Mr. Beast basketball just arrived at our house tonight. He's got his own basketball? Yeah, I mean, I bought it for my son for his birthday,
Starting point is 00:06:43 came a couple of weeks late. But weeks late, but a Mr. Beast basketball did arrive. Did he play a lot of basketball, Mr. Beast? Is he a hoops guy? I know my son loves Mr. Beast, and I went to go look on his gift store, and I was like, a basketball, that works. So that's the kind of thing that my son could get into
Starting point is 00:06:59 that would make him not like Mr. Beast. The whole carpool the other day was talking about like Mr. Beast. He's like, he's not like Mr. Beast. He's not like Mr. Beast. He's not like Mr. Beast. The whole car, right, the whole carpool the other day was talking about how Mr. Beast is being sued. And they're like, well, what, like, for how much does everybody in the carpool? And I said, 100 million dollars. And, whoa, he's got it.
Starting point is 00:07:18 He's got it. Yeah, he does. I like that every kid knows what Mr. Beast is worth. What they were not worried about the lawsuit. They're like, you got it. You're kids are all in the backseat reading the rob report. What is this for me? What is this for me?
Starting point is 00:07:39 All right, welcome back. Last week we talked at length about bats, a movie that discord user fun facts 47 thinks could have had the tagline bats. It's gonna be crazy. I like that guano. I like it. Uh, well, we had questions about bats and we might have even missed a few things. Here is your chance to set a straight fat check us if you will.
Starting point is 00:08:02 It is now time for corrections and omissions. Thank you for angels for wins. I love that name. That is a great theme song and a great name. All right, let's go to the discord right now. Cameron H says, in defense of the second opinions writer who said that bats could happen, not only could it happen, it did happen, at least in terms of weaponizing bats and having similar disastrous results. What camera and what are you talking about while he says during World War Two while Oppenheimer was
Starting point is 00:09:10 developing the atom bomb. The US Navy had a competing program called Project X-ray, the brainchild of a dental surgeon who lived near Carl's Bad Caverns, a famous bat hotspot. The plan was to attach incendiary devices to thousands of bats and drop them over Tokyo just before dawn. The idea was that the bats would look for the most convenient places to roost, the, you know, the eaves of homes, barns, schools, etc. And then timers would detonate them once they were settled. Not only was this plan incredibly inhumane to the bats, it was especially barbaric as bats can't be trained to seek out military targets. So most of the casualties would have been civilians. The plan was popular enough that FDR gave it the thumbs up predictably. Much like the events depicted in the film, things went sideways quickly during the first test run, immediately the bats caused millions of dollars of damage to their own air force base
Starting point is 00:10:10 when they blew up several fuel tanks and the new car of the general in charge of the project, proving that bats are nobody's patsies. Wow, Cameron H. This is give it to you right now. I mean, who can beat that? We'll see. Derek Chimes and Derek says, I have an answer to June's questions.
Starting point is 00:10:29 Do bats just always have diarrhea? I used to volunteer at the zoo with bats. Basically, flying requires a lot of energy, so bats eat a lot. But most of their food, whether it's bugs or fruit, isn't very digestible and would weigh them down. So bats use a high volume, low processing strategy to get as much energy out while keeping their weight down for flight so they poop a lot.
Starting point is 00:10:52 Bat poop gets a special name because it has high nitrogen content which makes it very useful for pre-industrial fertilizer and gunpowder. You can check out a whole Reddit about that at Sash r slash bat facts for more bat info. But I'm going to tell you, the Guano talk continues with Dr. Guts. Dr. Guts says when LDP, that's who's done. And folks, Indena Myers are waiting in the river of Guano LDP lights a flare to help them see, but Guano is highly flammable.
Starting point is 00:11:22 In fact, during the Civil War, the Confederate Army actually resorted to using Bat-Qa-No for ammunition in reaction to the Union's blockades. The moment, LDP would have lit that flare, the entire mine would have ignited into a fireball from all the methane gas in the air. In fact, something similar happened. Oh my God, in real life, and the 1800s, lightning struck the mouth of a bat cave located in a small Texas town causing a massive explosion. The town's people actually found humor in this and renamed their town, Blowout, Texas.
Starting point is 00:11:57 Holy shit, these are blowing my mind. Corgi Hearder writes, if you are creating the ultimate, and you are a mad scientist like Dr. McCabe, how far down the list are bats? He couldn't find something bigger and already dangerous. Yes, Corgi. I mean, bats, it seems like a, I don't know. Maybe it was Jungle Warfare, I don't know. I can't pronounce this person's name, but it looks like it's just the image of a bat.
Starting point is 00:12:24 When the guys are talking about not being maternal about bats, I had to come here to share this video. Alright, so this is wild. This is a clip from a 1978 episode of the BBC News Program nationwide, where zoologist Sherry Bramwell talks about her relationship with the pet fruit bat named balls. That's right, that's her pet fruit bat named balls. As he listened to the clip, picture the bat hanging upside down from her neck like a necklace because
Starting point is 00:12:50 that is exactly what is happening. When my relationship began by having him as a sweet little baby bat, he was only about six inches long and I sort of tamed him first and he began to look on me as his mother. a'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweithio'r gweith which is this bit here and he very very delicately with it lifts open your eye in the upper eyelid and lifts it open and wakes you up like that. And it was amazing because he knows he's got to get the eyes open to wake you. He knows not to hurt you. Please find this clip. That is too good.
Starting point is 00:14:02 It is too good. Thank you for sharing that. Oh my god. Mitch Kappa, chunk style writes, I had a couple issues with the fortifying the school montage. First, I'm afraid their electric fence wouldn't work because Jimmy was connecting both the positive and negative wires to the fence. That will just create a short circuit. And at most, the small area of fence between the two cables just might get hot. But the larger issue was why did they pick such a big location to fortify in the first place? They had their run of the town at that point.
Starting point is 00:14:35 Find yourself a nice small and secure spot with way fewer windows. If LDP took them there just because of the turntable and PA system, I question his commitment to the mission. Wow. Okay, what last, but not least, Cameron H. returns with a follow-up to his earlier comment. Cameron, you come at the front, you come at the back. Cameron writes this, holy shit, I was researching more into Project X-ray and discovered that the youngest member
Starting point is 00:15:05 involved Jack Cofur ended up writing a book about his experience on the project in 1992 called Batbomb After World War II, he worked in Hollywood for a time as a documentarian and cinematographer ultimately getting nominated for an Academy Award for Best Cinematography for a little film called Jonathan Livingston, mother fucking sigil, holy shit Cameron H, I thought that you would have lost your perch but you regained it, doubling down two times, no need for debate Cameron H is our winner and as such he gets this amazing song. Hit it.
Starting point is 00:16:05 Thank you, Katie Morris for that song.

Themes that have been made by our listeners for our show, the main, how did this get made theme. And I said, you know what, why don't we open it up once again. The show is grown. We have amazing talented people that are making great songs every week for last looks. Why don't we open it up and give them an opportunity to Trump to best what we already have.
Starting point is 00:18:05 And if we find that... I want to say, yeah, I just want to say to exactly the point you were just making, only in these last few years have I been dropping in and hanging out with you on last. And boy, is it so impressive to hear all of these fan submitted theme songs, ancillary songs, all the original music that you guys are doing is incredible. And I was listening back to one of our segments because I couldn't remember if I'd recommended something
Starting point is 00:18:36 or not. And so I heard a song that I hadn't heard when we were doing it that featured vocals by James Kachalka. You referenced it. Oh, yes. Which for me was a blast from the absolute past. James Kachalka was a, is a indie comics creator, a indie music creator, someone whose music and comics were very much a part of my, I think I spoke to James Kachalka on the phone
Starting point is 00:19:07 when I was my college radio stations general manager in like 1993 or four. Whoa. Which, that blew my mouth. I was really delighted by that. So I just wanted to shut that out because I was like, whoa. Whoa, I love that.
Starting point is 00:19:22 Oh, that's amazing. All right, well, that's what I'm saying is, we got great talented people here. I wanted to give them a shot, not saying that we're gonna replace the theme, but we're, don't freak out. We're just opening it up, opening it up to say hey. We're encouraging creativity.
Starting point is 00:19:39 Exactly, and if we find something that works great, and what we're gonna do right now is kinda like, you know, it's kinda like a reality show, our reality show. We're gonna listen to a little bit of these and we can comment on them. We can listen to the whole thing. We're gonna tear them to shreds. We are gonna sign Minkowl to shreds.
Starting point is 00:19:57 We're gonna tear these to shreds. Rob from Long Island, watch out. We're coming for you. Like Jeff Follender, get ready. Huge mistake. The action Jackson five. All right. So I haven't heard these. You haven't heard these. Okay. Great. Our producer, Scott has heard these. And we got three. We got three. And Scott, do you have any other ones? It's just three. Total three. I might have one or one or two more if we want to add some of the next.
Starting point is 00:20:25 All right, all right. These are the, these are the cream of the crop according to Scott. Let, let's say this Scott, let's start us off with these suck, it's on Scott. Well, that's what I kind of want to do. I want to kind of say Scott, let's start off with one that you didn't even put into the top three.
Starting point is 00:20:41 Only because we need a baseline. We need a baseline. It doesn't mean that that's, this is savage for this person. Like you're setting this person up as the worst. I'm not saying this, you know, look, there's many reasons why it may not be the perfect song,
Starting point is 00:20:53 but I don't want this person to feel like you didn't give me my due. Like you didn't, I submitted it and you didn't even play it. You're a producer. Knock me out. Before I even had a chance, send your angry emails to Scott. Yes.
Starting point is 00:21:09 So I want you to know that we're on your side. We haven't heard it, but Scott, who's titled the folder here? These are not the ones that he wants. But again, Wow, you really throw him in the bus here. But hey, I'll take it. No, you don't have to. No, honestly, Scott is great and we wanna make sure
Starting point is 00:21:27 that everyone feels heard. And you know what, if this stinks, the truth is, it's good for Scott. It's good for Scott. Just so people know, like, Scott, great guy, great producer, I did see him after a Largo show once kick a dog. Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Starting point is 00:21:43 And it was him too, all right. And by the way, it was a puppy. It was a puppy. It was a bow on it. It was really a vicious attack. Really, it was brutal. No, but I will say this, we do play a lot of songs on last looks that people submit. Some weeks, they're bangers. Some weeks, you're like, okay, that is a song that technically qualifies as a song and that's what we're doing here
Starting point is 00:22:06 I think we got to take the pressure off. So here we go. The one that didn't even make the cut What do we got this comes from Benjamin Hilton? Maybe there were 14 different writers. I think The original was French if only the A.E.R. were a bit tighter The gargles of the carry that will made our bunchies clenched Now brace yourself for Paul's best faith explanation Gurd your wounds for the Jason of our group Go to bed for Jews righteous indignation
Starting point is 00:22:43 We know it's something credulous But how did this happen? Alright, wow. Wow. This is what Scott is trying to keep from us. Put it on the show. Put it on every past show, every future show, this is it. I have to say a couple of things about that.
Starting point is 00:23:05 First of all, length, perfect, 40 seconds. Can't get better than that. Second of all, it reminded me a little bit, and I don't wanna come across a mean here, Ben, but your voice had a little bit of a Kermit, the frog energy. I thought it was a Kermit, the frog impression at first. And you know what, it endeared me to the song immediately
Starting point is 00:23:25 and the polka music, very weird owl, I was engaged. Here's where I will say, I was engaged as well. I thought it was a blast. But the mix is troubling. Yes. Because the instrumental track, and I'm genuinely curious, that I don't care if we've said Benjamin Hilton submitted this and in the mix, the instrumental stuff
Starting point is 00:23:49 is mixed too loud and your voice too soft. So I'm being assaulted by polka music and can be have to focus so hard to make out the clever leader. I also agree, I heard towards the end, I got a little bit more into it. I, there are some funny turns in it. Uh, Jason of our group, uh, the ADR needed to be a little bit tighter.
Starting point is 00:24:12 I like it. I look again. This is just, we're setting a baseline and I gotta say, uh, anybody who submits your hero and I'm not against that one. I thought we were going to be, I thought we gonna be in the show. Let's be clear. Let's be clear. We're applying the model of the podcast, which is the show.
Starting point is 00:24:31 Yeah, we're just doing it to your theme song. So we're not trying to trash you. We're not trying to eviscerate anybody. I think Benjamin did a fantastic job. And frankly, I would just like to hear a redo on the mix. I'm down, looking, that's what we're here for. We're here to be, we're not here to just knock them out. We're not here to be like Scott kicking a dog.
Starting point is 00:24:53 I gotta say, we're gonna give people second chances and we're gonna say, hey, maybe there's something you could do here and that's our little... No, no, no, no, stop doing thumbs down. Scott, Scott, stop doing thumbs down. And now he's like, you can try and meet him. Oh gosh, he's making some news
Starting point is 00:25:07 around the internet. Okay, well anyway, so now we're out of the Scott wants to kill himself, folder, the folder that Scott has just used Pukamo,
Starting point is 00:25:18 Gizanna, and we're gonna now get to some different ones. All right, this next one comes from Rob from Long Island, Long Time Theme Submitter, and you, Jason, you will be happy to know he is the one
Starting point is 00:25:31 who had James Cuchalca featured on his song as well. Oh, hey, nice. Oh, great job, Rob from Long Island. I love this. What's up, everybody? Come on in and have fun. Now you can watch theest movies under the sun All the gym that takes a good run of e or what
Starting point is 00:25:49 Says they talk about the movies that confuse us the most Like mac and me, sucker punch, chink a love of clay Geo's horn, the wicker band with Nicholas Cage Boogie loves run some laybugs and run away Tammy and the T-Retfoges, movie and J. How did this get made? How did this get made? How did this get made?
Starting point is 00:26:10 How did this get made? How did this get made? How did this get made? How did this get made? How did this get made? Wow. All right, so we've upped, we've upped it a little bit. Rob always delivers a solid.
Starting point is 00:26:26 That was great, I really liked that. I thought that was really fun. It's giving me a little bit like, it's the end of the world as we know it vibes, kind of running through all this stuff. I especially liked the chorus, the how did this get me in chorus. I liked the bounciness of it,
Starting point is 00:26:45 but Jason, I'm gonna go back and say what you just said, I think the mix is a little too, sometimes the mix is a little too low. I feel like the songs that we've had, the voices are in the front of the music a little bit. I'm now wondering if that's a fault that we are not, that these may be mixed better, but that what we're listening to
Starting point is 00:27:04 or the way we're listening to it over zoom might be affecting it. Could that be possible? I mean, Scott, what do you think? Listening to the local file, I would have to agree as well. I don't think it's just the zoom. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Scott is taking a shit on his key.
Starting point is 00:27:19 I mean, he's ready to go. He's literally angry on his computer. He's so mad at these submissions. I mean, but that's, you know, that he's a taskmaster. You know, he likes to just get in there and you know, you got to, you got to appease him. You got to get in there. So I mean, this is good.
Starting point is 00:27:35 I like that. I mean, I liked this. Here's what I'll say. I, here's, here's one of my criteria. Okay, great. Let me hear this. For a, how did this get made theme song? Or for, for, actually, and I'm curious, Paul. Yeah. Paul, I'm curious how you feel. Are there any criteria or can you think of any shows that
Starting point is 00:27:54 have theme songs that you love that there's a thing that you like about it? Because I have one I realized that I feel like the, the two that we've heard so far, well, the Rob from Long Island could have benefited a little bit more. And one of the criteria I think that is for us, it really meaningful and impactful is that the song is hyping up the show. Yes, I agree. I feel like you gotta come in with some high energy.
Starting point is 00:28:22 And energy, not like, not lyrics, or anything like that. But I don't mean like, hyping the show like, what you're saying about the show. I mean, energetically, the song I think should be a little up. Well, to me, what I'm also thinking about is the way the show starts. We have a little intro, and then it's like, boom, and we're just going, we're going, boom, right out.
Starting point is 00:28:40 And I do feel like you're right. Like, trying to get the song to be played rock from long island again can we drive to listen to like i almost feel like frankly i would like this this would almost work as an outro theme well i like that we don't even have an outro theme are i like this okay so the song the show ends whatever the final things are and then what happens next spot whatever the final things are and then what happens next Scott Okay, so you can stop it here now there's a little bit of stuff that doesn't exactly make sense because it feels like an intro song
Starting point is 00:29:25 But the tone of it I feel like is a wind down not a wind up does that make sense? Yes, I think you're right, I feel like, is a wind down, not a wind up. Does that make sense? Yes, I think you're right. I feel like, I know here's a thing, I still like the song. Oh, I really do, but I'm advocating it be a end of show theme. Like that we have like, an end of show, yeah, we have like, yeah, I mean, there's something about it. Like, I want to come back to the song. I feel like there's something here that's good, but I agree with you, like it has, like, it does have a wrap-up vibe about it. Like, I want to come back to the song. I feel like there's something here that's good, but I agree with you. It does have a wrap-up vibe to it.
Starting point is 00:29:50 Especially because, if you go further through Scott and start, I feel like it's da da da da this is a little bit up and then the how did this get made, which I really like, is a little bit down. Am I right? It's great. I like I like this chant along. How did this get made? I like me like I feel like for example? I feel like at a live show the audience would chant along I like that. Yes. I agree. I feel like yes So I think that that maybe what we're saying is we like that. There's something there. Yeah, do we need to You know, look maybe maybe Scott set a zoom with Rob from long Island We're gonna need to get into we're gonna have to figure it. Yeah figure it out. What's the next level of this on a reality show?
Starting point is 00:30:45 We are now working with Coaches. Yeah, exactly. Oh, okay. Again, we are so grateful for everybody who submitted stuff. I love it, it's great. I love it, I love it, I love it. Okay, so let's go to our next submission.
Starting point is 00:31:07 So, let's go to our next submission. All right, this next one is from Jeff Fallender. And I think, you know, you brought up being an outro. This was one I thought could actually be a decent outro, but I don't want to sway you before you listen. All right. How how how how did this get me? These folks should have got me Well John My pal Jason Andrew You're gonna do their best
Starting point is 00:32:03 And a special guest, gonna do the ring. Well how I'm scared of me. The best thing I've had can't show. Never got me. Oh, let's go a little bit more. Wow. Wow. Whoa. Okay.
Starting point is 00:32:53 That was incredible. Jeff. Jeff, what does it say? Fallender. Yes, Jeff Fallender. Yes. I really like it. I was going to say what I liked about that was it felt confident in what it was like it didn't.
Starting point is 00:33:06 Oh, yeah, you know, I don't know if that's the right launch into our show, but let me be clear. It is not, but we cannot start. How did this get made with a minute and a half long blues, right, acoustic blues song that being said, Jeff, absolutely incredible job. like what a right I kind of loved it. I love it as a song. I hear that's what made me think I agree with Scott who said you could use it as an outro You could use it in last to looks. There's plenty of places to put it. It just can't it's not at all
Starting point is 00:33:43 Pumping you up for no, are you to, are you guys ready to rock this show? But it also feels like very organic to the show, and that's the thing I can't quite figure, I can't like, I can't, it's vibes, it's vibes. It's got vibes for days, it's not the best opening, but at the same time, I like the sound, I like the voice, I like the lyrics, but yeah, that was really fun.
Starting point is 00:34:05 I love that. I thought that was great. And it also made me want to, and I'm certain we probably can't do this, but there's just so much good stuff that's been submitted for all this type of stuff. Wouldn't it be great if it all lived somewhere as a streamable? I mean, yeah. You could just be a YouTube channel or something. I'm certain we would have all sorts of problems playing other people's music on something. But it would have to be such that we weren't. We weren't making money off of it.
Starting point is 00:34:35 Right, right. We're not trying to make, but wouldn't it be cool for people to have access to all of these great songs? Well, yeah, and I mean, it's not like they can, it's not like they can go off and do that much. It's not like we're taking like's not like they can go off and do that much. It's not like we're taking like shake it off and making money out.
Starting point is 00:34:49 Like this is a very specific, but I wanna also, sorry, you didn't let me finish. I also wanna do shake it. Okay, well that now we will have to talk about it. I wanna do, will somebody start, is there a, how did this get made Eras concept? I mean, like I'm all, you know, I'm all in on Taylor Swift. Let me ask you a question, Jason.
Starting point is 00:35:06 Sure, go ahead. Very, you know, look, everyone's talking about it. Taylor Swift and Travis Kelsey. Would you feel comfortable? In like, like I've never seen this much energy around a newly dating couple. I keep on thinking, I know Taylor Swift is famously quiet about her relationship. She seems like she's coming out in a big way here, which I like, but at the same time,
Starting point is 00:35:37 how would you feel if a casual relationship that you were in was under the microscope like this? Oh, I mean, please, that sounds like an absolute nightmare. It really does, right? But it's, you know, I think though that sadly, both of these people are under a spotlight, obviously Taylor Swift so much more. But I do believe based solely on what I've come to learn in the last few weeks that Travis Kelsey's dating life would also be noteworthy because he is one of the top people in the NFL.
Starting point is 00:36:12 Well, is that is he dating? Does anyone have any notes on this? I don't know who he's dating. He seems like a real lovely guy. Our family, we've adopted the Kansas City Chiefs not before. Oh, nice. Before this because there's a lot of issues. Like I we were their Rams house and then June.
Starting point is 00:36:30 I mean, can I ask you a question? And admittedly admittedly I am not a sports fan. Yes. Any sports fan I don't follow any sports. I'm not I'm a sport. I'm not a sport. But and so I can tend to look at some things cynically. Yeah. I admit this is a cynical point of view.
Starting point is 00:36:48 Yes. Is there any part of this? Football's reputation has been so terrible. Yes. For these last bunch of years, CTE, concussions, concussion protocols, people having heart attacks and almost dying on the field. People like all of this crazy negative stuff around it isn't all of this somehow solving football's greatest problems from an optics point of view and reminding it's making football synonymous with pop star love in a way that is kind of a masterstroke of crisis management. Oh, absolutely.
Starting point is 00:37:28 And the only thing I would say about that is it's tricky because Taylor Swift doesn't need to improve her image, right? And they're lucky out. They're getting to like, they're getting to crest in this wave, which is why I think a lot of people feel like, is it publicity because Taylor Swift has her concert movie coming out, which has already sold out, it's already gigantic. Oh, no, I don't think she, she just made a billion dollars off
Starting point is 00:37:53 of this, so she's not, she doesn't need that kind of publicity or anything. But I will say, better business for her concert movie. Oh yeah. I mean, like it is going to benefit on some level, like she's getting, like the only thing that people watch, it seems like it sports, as far as like audience tuning in,
Starting point is 00:38:15 and Yellowstone reruns on CBS. But that energy, I think, I mean, look, she's interesting. She's getting shrapnel, like she hasn't even needed, but like,. She's getting shrapnel. She's not even needed, but she could be getting shrapnel. No, it's kind of, it's incredible the way it has captured the zikeist around a couple in a way that I just don't know. In a way that I feel like is from the days of old. Yes.
Starting point is 00:38:42 You know what I mean? Like this feels like it. Yes, we know what I mean? Like this feels like it, you know. Yeah, this feels like old school Hollywood matchmaking, less so like contemporary like dating. And now this feels, yeah. And can I say something else that I feel like maybe I don't wanna be a funny daddy here,
Starting point is 00:38:57 but they're both 33. Like it's not weird, it's not like, you know, it's, it's great, it's all those. Yeah, I mean, like, you know, I think that sometimes we have these like bigger relationships where it's not weird. It's not like, you know, it's, it's great. It's all those. Yeah, I mean, like, you know, I think that sometimes we have these like bigger relationships where it's like, oh, he's 57 and she's 20. You know, it's like, you know, and it's like, and it's like, we're there like,
Starting point is 00:39:16 they seem like down home people. Like, there's something about it that it all checks all these boxes. It's like a very, like you said, it's pop star love, but she's an adult. They're like, they just for sure. They feel like they're in their own personhoods. I don't know.
Starting point is 00:39:29 It's very interesting. It's an interesting. I'm very curious to see how this plays out. I know I'm sad about it. So public. Yeah. In a way that is, in a way that I, again, I guess I just wouldn't wish on anyone.
Starting point is 00:39:40 I don't want it to be over. And if it is, it will. Yeah. Yeah. Even prior to this relationship, I felt bad for Taylor Swift's prior, like the actor she was dating. That Joe, yes, Joe, I remember his last name,
Starting point is 00:39:55 Alwyn, yes. Joe Alwyn and stuff, because I'm like, oh, they are under such a microscope. There is, that to me seems brutal. And this now seems like that times a microscope. There is that to me seems brutal. And this now seems like that times a hundred. I know we talked about it here on the show or maybe we did not, we talked to you about it privately, but you know, I was going a little bit on the deep dive of Taylor Swift like I do. And the one who got it, who got bit the hardest was Tom Hiddleston. I mean, Tom Hiddleston really took it on
Starting point is 00:40:22 the chin and, you know, and I think is pivoted in a way to just kind of having to avoid talking about and he's now married and all the other stuff but uh man oh man it's you know it's hard it's hard to you know you don't want to be on the outside of that you don't want to have a song written about you that's the thing that I'm always thinking about you. Oh yeah sure. I would. It's really interesting. It's a very it is in a time when I feel like most of our narratives are being supplied by like reality television. Yeah. Like scandival or something like that. You're right. This is happening for everybody live at a game. Like this doesn't feel like editing. This doesn't feel like producers are monkeyin' around. This feels earnest and honest, in a way that people I think are really responding to. And it's because I don't know the last time,
Starting point is 00:41:14 something like this caught this much fire. What, you have literally the biggest music star in the world, and one of the most popular football teams and, you know, a legendary Super Bowl champion, like, great, funny guy. Like, it's a perfect mix. It's like, it's not even, it's not even Hollywood. It's not Hollywood. It's music. No, no, that's what's interesting. I think it's actually, I think it actually is more interesting because it's not Hollywood. You know, it's whatever anyway, you know People want to know what to middle age
Starting point is 00:41:49 Concasters have to say about and by the way no snark. We're just coming out this really from a very general nice place Oh, yeah, I mean listen. I want I want love I want love for that. Yeah, give me some I also want everybody to leave them alone. Yes I also want to be like, football still seems fucking bananas. But, okay. Yeah, I mean, look, it's tricky. It's just tricky when I see pictures of him, like leaving her apartment. You know, it's like, it's a lot, it's a lot of energy that you don't want.
Starting point is 00:42:15 But I also would imagine that he actually has the best energy for it because he's actually funny. And she's got her whole thing, escaping in popcorn machines or whatever. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I have her shit figured out. in popcorn machines or whatever. Yeah, yeah, she's got her shit figured out. That seems fascinating. Oh, I love it. Some day, I hope they auction off all of those things. Oh, like an auction of things that Taylor Swift was in. I mean, like a janitors, what was it? A trash can set up? Yes. Yes. Cleaning supplies was the one that I saw. Yeah. Cleaning supply. Yeah. Big one. Oh my gosh. Yeah. of stuff. Yeah, that's all I got. Cleaning supplies was the one that I saw. Yeah, the cleaning supplies, yeah.
Starting point is 00:42:45 That's a big one, oh my gosh. Yeah. Alright, so let's get into it. Last song, is this last song? Last song from Taylor Swift herself. Let's, no, okay. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Well, that brings, that does bring something up.
Starting point is 00:42:59 If you are in a band and you wanna write us a song, what, God damn it, why not? I'm looking at you, Manacamposi. Do it. I'm looking at you, other bands who are very sweet to say that they listen to the podcast when they're on tour in the van or on the bus. If you're listening to the show, write us a theme song.
Starting point is 00:43:18 Come on. Yes. All right, what do we get? All right, last but not least, this is from the action jacks and five. Badger, Jesus, steth, Angelino Down at the log, always wear a scene of How did this get me? Told your cheer, and Jesus' looks Bought to be my source of power to puke Tonight, and as once its mission And wherever the bar starts starts is another question How do you just get me here?
Starting point is 00:44:08 How do you just get me? How do you just get me? Wow. Wow. Wow. That's good. I mean, that's great. That is the one that if we had to pick, I'm going, that's my vote because I think it encapsulates everything that we've been talking about, vocals in the front, right? We did that. Length, great. Funny. Minute long.
Starting point is 00:44:53 Minute long. And it, it, Clever lyrics, and it's got a very up tempo. It's got an up vibe. You know, it's not like, it's not really faster, anything like that, but it's got an up vibe. And I like that, I love, got an up vibe and I like that I love I love you know, I love a big heavy riff
Starting point is 00:45:08 Driven you know hard rock kind of song it almost almost tipped into like late 90s rap rock Yes, and I and I wasn't mad at it. I was like, oh, okay I when a good thing I come to go and don't even ask where the butt starts I was like oh is there okay. I, when a guy comes in, he goes, and don't even ask where the butt starts, I was like, oh, is there gonna be a rap rock break down? That's what I'm gonna say. And I loved about it. Like, I, yeah, I wanted it. Well, here's the thing.
Starting point is 00:45:33 We've done, we've done our like hip hop version. We had our traditional like podcast song. Like, when we first had our first podcast song, everyone, every song kind of sounded the same a little bit, right? Like, I had a similar vibe to it. And now it's gotten a little bit more interesting, everything. But I feel like this, this stamp new territory, it laid it down. Yeah. Let's hear it again. This is here a little bit. I love a metal. I love a metal heart rock metal in the mix is a great addition. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:46:03 I mean, I like this. I love that. Great. I love that great Question! How did this get me? How did this get me? How did this get me? Wow. Incredible. Yeah, I liked it even more the second time around. I mean, I'm in.
Starting point is 00:47:13 I like this. Yeah. Here's my note. Here's my note to the action Jackson 5. Yeah. My only note would be instead of the long-ish fade out pull down, that there be a punchier end, almost like a ha, bam, bam, bam, bam.
Starting point is 00:47:35 Something that's like a real cutoff point so we can start the show. That's really it. Because the decay in between for us, the decay is a problem. I agree. Yes, I mean, look decay is a problem. I agree. Yes, I mean, look, this is great. I hope this inspires people right now.
Starting point is 00:47:49 That's a great one. Yeah, love it. Yeah, I mean, you know, but it's almost got like, it's got a Motley Crew style lyric and vocal performance from the Action Jackson 5, but like a heavy, scuzzy, hard rock kind of, which I dug.
Starting point is 00:48:07 I'm in, I like this Jason, this is a great experiment. We are, we're no rush, we're not gonna replace, we don't even know where we're gonna replace it. But this is, we might never replace it. How about that? I know. Or we're replacing it tomorrow. Boom, and that's it, and it's gonna be that first one
Starting point is 00:48:21 with the accordion. And that's, and that's, it's the polka. And that's despite Scott, and I'm sorry, we had the accordion and that's and that's it's the polka and that's despite Scott and I'm sorry We had to do it to Scott like this, but so sorry Scott. Yeah Scott. Fuck you. All right. We will be back next week as Jason we finally discuss What movie you were thinking about a lot of people have weighed in about this Thank you Jason. Thank you Jake.

We are going from Winged Beasts to Italian Priests. That's right. Next week we are
Starting point is 00:49:17 watching 2023's, oh it feels like yesterday, the Pope's Exorcist starring Russell Crow, a movie inspired by actual files from the Vatican's chief exorcist. You heard me right. The Vatican's chief exorcist. Here's a short breakdown of the plot. The Vatican's leading exorcist investigates the possession of a child and uncovers a conspiracy. The Vatican has been trying to keep secret.
Starting point is 00:49:41 Anyway, Ron Tomatoes gives this film a 48% on the tomato meter, Catherine Bray of Empire Magazine writes, it's not just a demonic possession victims whose eyes will be rolling in the back of their skulls. None of this should work, really, and yet the film just about gets away with it. Proving the Lord truly does move in mysterious ways. I couldn't agree with you more, Catherine. Let's listen to the trailer for Dipobs X or Caste. Oh my god, that is a great evil that only you can help.
Starting point is 00:50:11 Inspired by the actual files, what have you got to do? Of the Vatican's chief exorcist. Is the Vatican soup a church beside something? You've been blamed. Who will defend you? My face is not required to defend. The Pope's exorcist, Lady Darwin, Theater, April 14th. All right, people. You're gonna have a blast. It's on Netflix.
