Starting point is 00:00:00 Music Hello, hello, hello, hey Anna. Hey, Dasha. Hi, hi back. Welcome back to the best podcast in America. Still at it. Yeah, after all these years. So true. I have no idea what we're talking about. Yeah, I moved. I moved. Oh my God. Yeah, I moved. Which I do kind of a lot, but I was in my last apartment for two years, maybe a little more? That's not bad.
Starting point is 00:01:05 Maybe the little less, something like two years. And it's really traumatic to move for me all the way. For anybody. Yeah. Some people I think are better at it than others. Shout out to my friend Julia, who helped me pack. She's a little bit of a no-mad herself so she's you know and she's got a more kind of organized mind and I I think helping someone move is really one of the greatest acts of like charity
Starting point is 00:01:37 I agree because it's like so daunting not just physically, which is fine. And I, you can hire hired movers, but like psychologically, having to really like, reckon with the longings and all the... Yeah, and if you're used to living like a dog for many years, as we are, yeah, you also have the epigenetic trauma of having to get over the psychological obstacle of hiring movers, not because you're exploiting people, but because it seems so daunting and annoying to figure out which moving company you should go with.
Starting point is 00:02:20 It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible.
Starting point is 00:02:32 It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible.
Starting point is 00:02:40 It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. It seems like it seems like it's impossible. They really, I gave them some gatorade. They were awesome. What's, yeah, what's stressful for me having never used movers was like, do I have to be? It sucks having to be there while they are laboring.
Starting point is 00:02:57 Yeah, this is why I don't get cleaning ladies. Well, you don't have to be there when the cleaning ladies are though. I feel like that's probably true, but I always... Most people prefer to leave, I guess, yeah. Because they're not there. They wouldn't take a cleaning lady so long. Yeah, I just like sit kind of hunched up in my room because you have to let them out. Or I guess they can just close the door behind. Well, the thing about my new apartment, which is fantastic, which I really like, when I
Starting point is 00:03:30 did finally complete the moving process, I was like, wow, I can't believe I was so attached to my object living conditions when I could like, I mean, it's not like the best apartment, but it's a huge improvement for It's by far the nicest place. I've ever lived and I have a door man. Congratulations. I made it. That's a big W. Having a door man.
Starting point is 00:03:53 And that's the thing with also what the made is that the door man gives them keys. Or you give them keys. Oh, you guys have like a building made. No, no, no. But if you hire people to do a Y, okay, then they can get a key from a dormant or you can make them a key. There's, you know, there's options. You don't have to. But with movers, you kind of do, I was kind of like, so they'll come and I'll just step out.
Starting point is 00:04:19 Julia, I'm out there. You can't leave them there to like rifle through your racist books and sniff your panties. Well, I didn't have them packed for me. I just had them. I boxed everything up. They gave me bins, which I put on my side. The Turner Diaries. What is this? This cheek is bass. I'm like, don't look at all my Croatian souvenirs. I was hiding my Croatian shot glass. souvenirs. I was hiding my Croatia shot glass. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:04:53 Cause you never know. I thought they were Montenegro. I think some of them might be. And I was treading all the way to the world, but for them, it's very charged. Right. So I was like, after in my new apartment, I was kind of like, like, again, like, awkwardly pacing around. But is it though in America? It seems like this is one of those from Serbia, they're not. Oh, okay, but they've been here long enough to experience. But you don't want to. No, I just, I was like, I was like,
Starting point is 00:05:18 um, are you bulking? They're like, yeah, we're Serbian. And I was like, just like whipping out the calavers. I'm like, yeah, all my, I'm like, I don't know any jokes that aren't at Serbian people's expense. So I mean, I feel like in that area of the world, the jokes are interchangeable. Exactly.
Starting point is 00:05:40 You just say a quote or an Albanian. Bosnia. I can't. Whatever. How about those Bosnia? I think or an Albanian Bosnia. I can't. I can't. How about those Bosniaks? I think everyone hates Albanians. Yeah, because they're Muslim. Well, some Bosnian, right?
Starting point is 00:05:55 Yeah. I don't fucking know, man. Serbs are orthodox, primarily. Mm-hmm. The good ones. The good ones are Catholic. I always feel like there's an equivalence in America between like how Indians and Pakistanis treat each other and how serves and Croats treat each other because in their homelands they're like mortal enemies but over here
Starting point is 00:06:22 they're like brothers united against global homo. So true. And like the erosion of their native and traditional cultures? Yeah. Yeah, and you don't see so many crotes because they're mostly in Canada, I guess. But the Serbs are plentiful. And I will miss my, the Balkan restaurant by my old place.
Starting point is 00:06:47 Yeah. I mean, I think apartments are like relationships in like that it's serious once you've been there for more than two years. Oh, I'm so, I'm in love with my new apartment. That's exciting. I'm happy for you. I'm really like, once I get, I can have,
Starting point is 00:07:07 like I, I have like space. I can get like a TV or like a projector maybe, maybe I don't know. I have like closet space, which I've never really had either. Like just by the flat screen TV that Justin Murphy discarded to punish his wife and children so he could read more books. He could read fucking Duluth and I'm not I won't I'm not gonna dox myself but I've mentioned already on online that I do it by the UN. That's a big area. There's lots of units over there. There are and there are many
Starting point is 00:07:52 embassies which I am loving and I don't know. I'm just I feel well I found out about a whole new country. Burkina Faso. Burkina Faso. Formerly called the Upper Volta, which is amazing. Burkina... Burkina Faso. Bust in a Faso. Wow. Like... life's... I don't know know I'm really like clear-pilled
Starting point is 00:08:29 Because I'm like in a new Environment and I'm just like life is amazing. I'm like I'm 32 years old I've just been out about a whole new country like think about what's out there and every day I see I walk out of my apartment, I see the billowing beautiful flags of our United Nations. And I think, wow, there's so many, they're all valid. Palace sign is not in the human by the way. It's not valid. Not valid, not the UN. And there's people, you know, there's bureaucrats and they're working, there's diplomats, there's ambassadors,
Starting point is 00:09:14 like I don't know what they're doing. They're doing some, there's people scheming on regime change. There's not even, there's like slapping down like arbitrary sanctions. They're writing like cultural dossiers and hosting wine and cheese nice. Yeah, they're just doing fake stuff,
Starting point is 00:09:30 but it's all about the buildings incredible. It's like so. I don't know, there's lots of really interesting architecture. Every embassy kind of has its own flavor, like the Turkish embassy, like the Venice whale in embassy, which is just like bombed out and has like dilapidated shop. All the Indian, the permanent mission of India in the US is a very interesting building with like a circle
Starting point is 00:10:00 cut into it. I'll show it to you. But there's like these little square windows and they're jammed full of trash Like straight up like full of like a hoarder is like a people and like a hoarder It's how all their decorations trash. That's racist But the building itself is really cool. Okay, here's, yeah, this is the Indian Embassy. Yeah, it's, isn't that like interesting, but look at this, like a little window that's like just really actually full garbage.
Starting point is 00:10:32 It's like a giant call center. This is Senegal. They're like, hello, this is Angela from Essence. That's a picture of me in my bra. That's, yeah, just, I don't know. I'm in Jalaf from Essence. That's a picture of me in my bra. That's, yeah, just, I don't know. I'm... Nigeria. What?
Starting point is 00:10:51 I mean, Nigeria looks about what's in the bowl. That's how I picture Nigeria. The Uganda house is really cool. I think it was made by a Japanese architect. I think a lot of them. You've gone to go to the... You've gone to go to the embassy to get a green card or whatever. They started the Belarusian embassy sadly and I don't think they do fly the flag outside
Starting point is 00:11:14 there. What's up with the Russian embassy? Because I feel like I remember going to a lot of wine and cheese evenings there maybe 10, 7 years ago. Is it even still an operation? It's probably further uptown. So the French embassies further uptown,
Starting point is 00:11:30 like some of the, I get some of the fringe, the one for like, it's called the people of Laos. There's something that has like a weird name, it's literally like some weird apartment. Some of it's, I don't know. I love being an intern ash. I'm an intern ash. I do. I love every country. I think they're all so unique. We're fans of diversity. I actually am like, I love diversity. Like I don't know what Peter Teal was on about
Starting point is 00:12:07 because like I'm the spice of life. Hello. The mush of life. Yeah, I don't wanna live in an ethno state unless it's Japan. Unless it's Japan, but they don't want me there. Yeah. And even Japan I think I would, you know,
Starting point is 00:12:27 I think I'd start chimping. Yeah, actually. Once the novelty were off, I think I do. We love the big beautiful melting pot that is America. I always hated the term melting pot because it sounds so disgusting. Like a bunch of bodies being ground up and cooked down until like a weird undifferentiated like Ethiopian slog communal stew. Yeah. I'm looking at a map of Africa now. There's a lot I Oh my Africa there's a country called like the there's there's a lot of there's a lot of countries that I didn't know about I did weirdly know about Burkina Faso because it has such a distinct name and the
Starting point is 00:13:06 capital of Burkina Faso is U and Mali are united, which we can get into. The country that nobody ever talks about is Chad. No, what's up with Chad? Well, people like to post the map that says a country I didn't know about is the Central African Republic. That's the one Maddie learned about recently and also brought to my attention.
Starting point is 00:13:47 What? What's crackin' in the Central African Republic with its... It looks beautiful. Like, capital of Banguul. Africa goes crazy. You just think of there's probably other countries I don't know about.
Starting point is 00:14:03 Deaf, yeah. And like... Just just life is great. Unless you're African, unless you're African, unless by or you're some kind of warlord and you look amazing in the right, that's why, because I saw it keeps saying this guy wearing a beret. And I was like, who is this man? I was like, is this Burkina fossil? It's the Burkinoids, the Berkshutters.
Starting point is 00:14:29 Yeah. So there's some, something's going on in Africa. On the dark continent, yes. There's a new scramble for Africa. Yeah, there's a coup in Niger, which has sparked some action from the neighbors, neighboring allies, Molly, and Burkina Faso. These are all landlocked countries in West Africa that were originally part of the French colonial project.
Starting point is 00:14:58 That's what I learned on the Internet today. Here's the TLDR. So the elected pro-French pro-US government in Niger was overthrown by a military junta, which is basically pro-Russia, pro-Vogner. Though nobody knows whether these things are still the same thing, maybe probably. So now all the countries in West Africa are forced to pick a side based on whether they have elected, ie pro-West governments or military ie pro-cremlin governments that over through the original elected governments. Nigeria is also the leader of ECOWAAS, nominal determinism, which is basically the African NATO, and it's threatening to invade Niger to quote restored democracy. Well, why didn't know those were different countries. Niger and Nigeria. I thought people were calling it
Starting point is 00:15:58 Niger for short. Okay, so right next to each other, and... Hear me out, I think that... Niger is male-coded and Nigeria is female-coded and Nigeria is trying a long house, Niger. Yeah, that makes sense because they have the feminine suffix. Yeah, the best take in this home melee was furnished by one of my favorite posters on the internet called David Pinson, who said that if Niger really wanted to mess with the West They would add an extra G into their name Yeah, I saw someone say
Starting point is 00:16:35 It'll be interesting to see how Biden struggles iterate these The names these countries, but basically all the other military governments in the region are like vowing to defend the Niger-Koo leaders. But most importantly, as many people pointed out, none of this matters, because it's Africa. It's way over there. Yeah, it's way over there.
Starting point is 00:16:58 Unless this thing snoballs into like a real hot conflict, because then we're in for another migrant crisis. Well, it matters to me as a citizen of the world. I'm a cosmopolitan. I'm an internationalist. I'm a globalist. So, microchimera, a Jew? Well, that's for sure. I don't know if I'm saying that correctly. You are.
Starting point is 00:17:34 You are. Yeah, but this all feels like a big proxy battle between Russia and the West over probably like natural resources and zones of influence. Because it seems like Russia slash Wagner is edging in like put in ascending like grains and weapons and quote Russian instructors to teach the military troops over their weapons and military strategy and culture. Mm-hmm, about the culture. Damn. I, yeah.
Starting point is 00:18:11 I mean, I have a take on migrants. Yeah. I've had some braze on them. Migrants. Who are they? Put some slather on some sunscreen. What if, what if to combat Russia sending grains and weapons and Russian instructors, aka paid mercenaries, we just start sending them
Starting point is 00:18:36 crates of sunscreen? What if Africa's historically four outcomes have less to do with quote the legacy of colonialism and more with the fact that everyone there is like severely sun damaged. They're not there. They've got the mouth. I know. You know, and well, sunscreen's poisons. They are beautiful chads.
Starting point is 00:18:56 We have to start. That would actually be an act of bioterrorism. I'm still sunscreen because sunscreen is toxic as we've learned recently. But I'm saying, right, here in New York, we're having a migrant crisis of our own. I've seen a lot of photos of migrants outside of the hotel Rose Elb, which they keep calling historic, but it's been a pretty like crack at a hotel for a long time. Yeah, I'm not familiar with this hotel. I've never stayed there before.
Starting point is 00:19:34 Is it a midtown hotel? It's by, yeah, it's by Grand Central. And you know, it's an eye sore, for sure. The hotel or the migrants? The migrants. But, I'm saying, that's why I'm saying, I see these guys in Africa, they're looking real good in these burais.
Starting point is 00:19:56 Yeah, they're kind of like, harkening back to the aesthetic legacy of the Black Panther party. It's like, or like, Bo Trouville, it's this like French kind of inspired military aesthetic. And I think get some berets on these migrants. So we're saying the legacy of colonialism is a good thing.
Starting point is 00:20:19 I'm not informed enough once again, just found out about some of these nations. But I'm saying it looks great good. Yeah for sure. I saw some guy on Twitter sounding off about the image of the African migrants outside of Roosevelt Hotel saying you know it was like one of those litmus tests. Do you regard these people with respect or disgust? If you look at this image and your first impulse is not to port these people, like, miss me with that shit. And my first impression is like, how can I get a deal on a knockoff Louie Vuitton handbag? You got to go to Canal State for that. But, um, I don't know where are they from. I have no fucking clue.
Starting point is 00:21:05 West Africa probably. Why? Why are they here? Because they're searching for more jobs and opportunities and the guys politically have to see probably. They're coming from a war zone. Why are they in New York City? There's a big ask on TV. Yeah, because I think they're probably being bust over here.
Starting point is 00:21:28 By who? Why George Soros? Who's doing it? Well, remember a couple of months ago when DeSantis pulled that stunt of like sending the migrants to Martha's Vineyard? Yeah, yeah. I'm sure there's some of that at play. I have no idea. I can't even pretend to weigh in on this.
Starting point is 00:21:47 But they are converting various like facilities all over New York City into migrant centers. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Which is gonna spawn a really cool new race war because the local inhabitants, some of whom are property owners probably ain't having none of that. Migrants themselves. Yeah. Like us. Yeah. Yeah. It just seems like New York has enough.
Starting point is 00:22:15 We have got, we got problems. We have a dead body today. What? The second, I don't remember when I saw the first dead body which I talked about on this podcast, but there was another one displayed out by Steward Park and the fire department came and got him and it was really kind of sad and horrible seeing all these people were like rubber necking
Starting point is 00:22:35 with their cell phones out. And this is like a hot new thing that keeps happening. Oh yeah, yeah. We have our own problems here. It's not, I wouldn't. The best way to avoid dealing with your own problems is to import a whole new population of people with their own problems. And like subsidize the shit out of them.
Starting point is 00:23:01 I mean, they look like they're down bad. They don't look like anyone's taking care of them. Yeah, there are all of these NGOs. The original tweet was from this woman that was like from an organization literally called like the New York Jewish agenda. Oh, no. Now I'm serious, dad. Ha, ha, ha, ha.
Starting point is 00:23:20 Okay. Yeah, that was the woman who was like, please bring them like sunscreen and baby wipes. And everyone's like, hey, why do they need sunscreen and be where the women in children? Um, and you can, you know, I would never mind. What? Say it. I'll redact it. Just the sunscreen is, you know, not, they don't lock that up between read. The sun's the sunscreen's free.
Starting point is 00:23:58 You can just take that. Sad to feel good luck. You got to get an employee to unlock a case for you Yeah, good luck getting your I don't have I haven't really encountered any Hordes of migrants myself. I know this is another one of those devices of an inflammatory Twitter discourses That probably has some kernel truth to it But is basically designed to make people chimp out on the internet. Yeah, I'm not really buying it. It doesn't, I don't know. I'm a very small, I'm small mine. So until something affects me personally,
Starting point is 00:24:38 I, I'm like skeptical and I don't know. But yeah, I guess maybe it'll get worse. I don't know. Oh, it's so tough. I wish I worked at the UN so I could just iron this stuff out for everybody. I just think, yeah, every time. They send you on a USO tour internally to entertain the migrants.
Starting point is 00:25:05 They're like, who is this albino killer in here? Hello, my baby. Hello, what's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man?
Starting point is 00:25:17 What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? What's up, man? I think every country is amazing and every country should be what should stay.
Starting point is 00:25:28 Which is why we should stop destroying all these countries and making people come. Exactly. Exactly. I'm sure they'd rather be in their own country. Like an ideal circumstances. Like no one wants to, I don't even want to move apartment. I know. I don't even want to be displaced for 30 minutes.
Starting point is 00:25:51 Like I can't handle the whole thing. Can you imagine going on a life raft in the Mediterranean with 30 other guys, no fat material? You're all passing around the same copy of Bronze Age mindset. Fals in the water. I mean, yeah, I can't really say shit because I am a migrant.
Starting point is 00:26:19 Well, you're an immigrant. You're like, I'm an illegal legal year. Yeah, but there was a point where my parents considered applying for refugees status. Yeah, a lot of Russians did. We were all also in the weird gray zone of not having any citizenship for a minute there in the early 90s.
Starting point is 00:26:38 Yeah, I was, we were like, I was, yeah, then that sucked, but like, you know, I'm, again, I love Belarus. Belarus is a nationalist here, but really glad I don't live there. My life would have turned out real, real different. Yeah. Though who knows who's to say, if it would be better or worse. Yeah, who knows what I don't know What I could have a call In a landlocked Eastern European country
Starting point is 00:27:20 That my ancestors have inhabited since you know The dawn of time. So sometimes I'm like, it's wrong. I'm by belong there. Mm-hmm. And maybe I feel weird all the time, because I'm not where I need to, need to be. Yeah, because you're eating a diet that's not suitable to your natural microbiome. I just like, yeah, my parents were the first in many many generations I guess ever to leave
Starting point is 00:27:49 Eastern Europe yeah saying like why would I maybe I should go back to the game room I thought about that I don't know don't I don't want to I don't want to. I like your grade school Russian. You know, being clowned on by a hordes of roving teams. It's what you talk influencer. Chat the suka. Yeah, this is here's a quote Vogue or group. Am I saying that it's that Wagner group, but it's based on but it's a Wagner or so to say Wagner group Yeah, I like to say Wagner corp
Starting point is 00:28:38 Because I like that kind of language more Yeah, do you have more sex or no? No, no, no no no no no no it's okay. I don't I don't Wagner group mercenaries have established a foothold for Russian at least half a dozen African countries earlier this year The group was designated a significant transnational criminal organization by the United States and was sanctioned by the European Union for human rights abuses in Central African Republic Sudan and Mali, African countries have often paid the Russian group for its mercenary fighters by granting Wagner access to natural resources,
Starting point is 00:29:13 such as mining concessions. So basically the West is gas-lighting Russia using feminine psychological warfare to obscure the reality that this is like literally a scramble for influence in Africa. And where are the Chinese in all of this? Haven't they bought up significant portions of the African landmass? That is such a good question. Where are the Chinese? Yeah, what are they doing? I can count on their money. Yeah, going to college. But for much of Burkina Faso's population, this provides little comfort like Wagner, the volunteers who fight alongside the Burkina Faso military, have been accused by civilians and rights groups of committing atrocities such as extra judicial killings and abductions of people alleged to be working with the jihadis, an investigation by the Associated Press in a video circulating on social media
Starting point is 00:30:08 determined that Burkina Faso security forces killed children in a military base in the country's north. What does this have to do with Russian Wagner? This is like the classic... Well, this is like the classic social journalistic tactic of like making a Off-putting and unclean association that like libles and smears your opponent and then being issuing like a caviar or display and being like oops, we didn't mean to after you've already Yeah, when the association is that now seared in people's minds right right, and basically what that sounds like is like Russians or killing children in Africa. Which they very well maybe.
Starting point is 00:30:54 Yeah, but all sides are killing children. So true. This is like all the Trump indictment stuff. Similar vibe, which we can get into or not. Well, I don't know what. No, no, go ahead. No, meanwhile, of course, there's leftists on the internet who are cheering the, like, the decolonization efforts of the African countries and going on about the end of neocolonialism.
Starting point is 00:31:24 Yeah, they won't be a pawn in our game this time. There is like a tweet from that guy in Feralas. Niger is the front line of the African revolution. We will see the destruction of neocolonialism in our lifetime. Which like what could possibly go wrong in a military coup staged by African leaders wearing berets, wearing berets, wearing the traditional African car, the beret. These guys are standing down the legacy of neo-colonialism. They're not merely trying to play their cards right and get with the people who can offer them the best concessions.
Starting point is 00:32:09 And they, I mean they look, they look good doing it. Yeah, so they have, they have, they're on a mission. They've got, they've won the hearts and minds. I can't stop thinking about Hearts, minds, I can't stop thinking about Burkina Fossa. I was like I Just what a great sounds so good. Well, I was saying I like upper the Republic of upper Volta better because it does kind of like an
Starting point is 00:32:43 Inominally deterministic way sound like Russia like Volta sounds like Volga to me. Yeah, I was like wow Russians have been here forever We was SARS and upper is like auspicious. Mm-hmm, you know Calling like yeah great African nation Boy am I glad that I read the heart of darkness again? Two weeks ago and gleaned absolutely nothing from it. I'm wanting, I want to go to Africa, dude. Do you? I mean, I'm sure that could be arranged.
Starting point is 00:33:11 I mean, not, it's not the top of my list. I have absolutely no desire or curiosity about going to Africa, but if somebody wanted to fly me out, like an Ijurian prince perhaps, I would be gay. If you had an email from a... But if somebody wanted to fly me out, like an Ijurian prince, perhaps I would be gay. If you had an email from come to the embassy tomorrow, bring identifying information and drain your bank account. Yeah, I'd go social security numbers.
Starting point is 00:33:42 I'd go on a safari. Yeah. No, I mean, there's like photos of us killing an endangered leopard and Glenn Greenwald to savouse us publicly. It's like the worst cancel. You all thought that out. You all thought the Alex Jones thing was bad. Wait, you see what we get. Watch us kill all the all it's baby watches.
Starting point is 00:34:03 you see what we get of watch is killing all the all it's baby watches We poaching for ivory do people still do they from sure they do yeah, I do they're poaching's a big problem It's actually me you know Pure evil true like that's incidentally my biggest beef with the trim crumb family with the trump crime family because The sons yeah, I didn't like that about them. Well, yeah. No, that's really, that's really sick. That's far worse than just like for me personally it reveals a startling lack of empathy. Yeah, as an empath, I agree. No, I think it's yeah, I'd show it's just like a deep, like, fucked character and like a dim mind.
Starting point is 00:35:02 Yeah, I'm okay with making foot of migrants, but I'm not okay with the killing exotic wild game that's on the endangered species list. You don't hear about endangered species anymore, Lindy Man PF. Yeah, they've like, they talk about climate change a lot. Yeah. Oh, well, that this is something I would like to talk about. Climate change? Yeah.
Starting point is 00:35:30 Yep. I want to talk about climate change related to climate change, something that really has me absolutely chimping out of my mind is the incandescent bulb band. Oh right fuck. Okay. I am hoarding light bulbs in my apartment like Russian psychopath. I am buying light bulbs on eBay, I'm buying light bulbs. I've always obviously preferred and can't doesn't.
Starting point is 00:36:08 Bops, just like any normal human person. When I see people being like, why do you bring people care about it? It's like the gas stove band all over again. It's like worse, but worse. I'll make a deal with the power brokers. You can import all the migrants you want to this country as long as you let us have our incandescent bulbs.
Starting point is 00:36:31 Oh, please, please, I don't care. I can't, and yeah, and then use the massive cope of people being like, well, you can, the LED light technology now can basically look like an incandescent, but it isn't about looking like something. It's about the way incandescent bulbs emit light from heat, which is you can't, you just can't, you can make an LED bulb like flicker, less or flicker faster.
Starting point is 00:37:08 So that's a different tone. You can give it a warm tone, you can dim it, you can do all sorts of things, but it is not the same, it's not the same quality of light. Yeah, LEDs are to incandescence like AI is to e-girls. So true. So true. are to incandescence like AI is to e-girls. So true. So true. But it's, and it's poised, I really think it's like,
Starting point is 00:37:32 I'm living in like a dystopia in my mind of like, also like why I'm panicking, dude. I'm, I'm doomsday prepping because the thought of actually living and it's become totally partisan because Trump, this is why they're really trying to lock my man up because he suspend the, he put the kai bosh on the ball band. Now, Brandon's taken the bulbs away. It happens so fucking fast.
Starting point is 00:37:59 August 1st just went into effect. You can't buy and can't us in bulbs on like Amazon. Yeah, they're gonna punish They're gonna stop the average show This is why I punish your us taxpayers This is why I have very Like holes in my pocket. I literally because I don't I'm like Afraid to live in a world where I can't there was Freed to live in a world where I can't there was
Starting point is 00:38:28 Degression anecdote, but there was a bulb in the 70s That was like a soft pink bulb that They just stopped manufacturing that Goomy Um, um, um, we're gonna hit your Elf bar. Please, please. You're, um, Goomey Elf bar. Um, Goomey the capital of Burkina Fals. Yeah, please. That's actually where they manufacture all the Elf bars.
Starting point is 00:39:00 The Chinese have a Elf bar factory in Burkina Fals. Um, here. Sorry. Chinese have a Elf bar factory in Burkina Faso. Here, sorry, let me pull up my notes real quick. What? I just want to say that it's unfair to import a bunch of migrants into the United States if you're just going to replicate the lighting conditions that they're used to in their home countries. Don't you want to give them a better way of life? Pink glow. Well, no, this particular light bulb was like this woman named Dorothy Draper wrote a book
Starting point is 00:39:40 called entertaining is fun about the art of parties and she highly recommended these like soft pink bulbs which emitted a very flattering light and were like the best light bulbs for like entertaining and these were just I don't know when they were discontinued but they're basically like they are impossible to get. It just does not. There is a quality of light that these particular bulbs emitted that just doesn't exist anymore. And the quality of light is the quality of life. I mean, it is. It is fluorescent light is like a morgue. It's like it drains your people.
Starting point is 00:40:21 And yeah, anyone who doesn't understand why someone would care is the scum of the earth. I was like, how do you live? You just don't take in your surroundings. I know. This is my mom's beef with the Indian immigrants that populate central Jersey. She's like, they don't understand the joy of warm light. And then I'm like, mom, no, no, don't say it. And then I like monetize her harsh and her voice on the podcast. There you go. But even a warm, even a warm fluorescent light is just not the same, and I think it wreaks psychological terror and damage on citizens to subject them to it. Endlessly, to not give them a choice is cruel.
Starting point is 00:41:16 It's cruel. I know. And it actually, it has me. I don't care about the migrants, I don't care. I'm about to cruise. I just want to have the light bulbs that I want in my fucking house. I do care about the migrants, because I'm a bleeding heart liberal. And I think that they should be able to enjoy the quality of life previously enjoyed by all
Starting point is 00:41:46 Americans which is basking in the warm glow of a incandescent bulb Hey man Sorry, that was insane and convoluted. This is the real civilizing mission. I think things in this country would be 50% better if the lighting conditions were more humane and flattering and just hospitable. I would gladly give up the choice of abortion for the choice of bulbs. I'll do anything for the bulbs. I'm like You're also on film you can't like LED lights
Starting point is 00:42:34 flicker like you can't it's all I mean we're sitting in a fucking I know I know. No, I was just trying to get an overhead light on now. And it's fine. I'm not like a spark. It doesn't like debilitate me. But it will.
Starting point is 00:42:57 I'm only going to get more like you can't take flattering selfies under the globe and LED. I mean, you can probably and maybe I don't know maybe I'm maybe I just need to grow up. Maybe I need to put aside people are he's talking out like logging off and touching grass but like when you have the LED lights around the whole world becomes a giant like smart phone or computer. Yeah, the blue light. Yeah, it's no good. Yeah, I say I'm like looking at my phone all the time. I'm like I want to live an aesthetic life. Like watching snuff videos on Twitter all day.
Starting point is 00:43:39 Scrolling the feed while walking past a literal dead body. It's my human right. You want to talk about human right violations? I do think this like incandescent ban is particularly, like sinister, like petty and cruel. Yeah, no, it's fucking, and yeah, and it's under the osp, the, the ospuses of like, they're more environmentally friendly. I wanna be the opposite of what an eco-terrorist is. I want, I'm gonna start starting wild by littering. I will do everything I'm like,
Starting point is 00:44:23 but I'm just keeping your AC on at all times. I already do that. Don't care. You know when it gets, when there's a heat wave, you get the notification that's like, conserve. Yeah, I'm like shut the up. What do you mean you just told me there was a heat wave? And you want me to turn my AC off? Yeah, I mean, I happen to know a Dominican guy who's like a super slash handyman whose
Starting point is 00:44:55 theory is climate change and global warming are fake and the reason that New York City is so hot is because people are like blasting their air conditioners at all times. What? That's his theory. I don't know. He's based in Redfield. The air conditioner inside. Yeah, but I think it like a blows high.
Starting point is 00:45:14 Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Mm-hmm. Okay, well, what we need is a big air man. He's a man skilled in the janitorial arts. So I think that he's like an expert in authority on this particular topic. And I personally like to believe people of color. Well, I'm a problem solver.
Starting point is 00:45:37 And I've been having a lot of really good ideas. And so just spitballing here, big air conditioner outside. Blow the hot air into Canada, fuck Canada. Why won't the migrants go to Canada? I'm sure they have their own migrants. They're like euthanizing the native population to make room for more of my friends. They're like telling some old lady like you're a hoarder which is evidence of deep pain and trauma and therefore you should be using eyes. Millions of Canadian seniors was dying. Yeah. What do you think about the news? The Justin Trudeau was splitting from his wife to be gay with Barack Obama.
Starting point is 00:46:31 The Barack Obama gay rumors are back in full effect. I have to say I've never heard them before because I was actually believed or not too young for the first round. I was, I was. Yeah, no, I was not sending. Yeah, I didn't have political consciousness, so I didn't know. I was just like hoping to change something.
Starting point is 00:46:54 That was just gave me the most like skeptic emoji look. I wouldn't want to. Yeah, why is it resurfaced? Because it's birthday, I think it's his birthday today. And it's gay guy Friday. Oh, okay. Damn. Happy gay guy Friday, Barack Obama.
Starting point is 00:47:14 Well, I'm really, um, I know someone who fucked Barack Obama in P-town. Yeah. Who fucked Barack Obama in P-town? Yeah, on Fire Island. I'm a big fan of the Michael Obama conspiracy myself. You're scoffing. As a mother, I don't like when they do Michelle dirty like that. Okay, well, what if I told you that I have a lot of penis that I have it on good authority. I heard this from someone who knows an Italian hat maker. Okay, like one of
Starting point is 00:47:59 the best hat makers in Tuscany or whatever. I'm worldly so you can trust me on this. It's like spit red wine into my eyes. And this man's made a hat for Michelle Obama and said that she had the biggest head. He had ever definitely on a woman even big for a man. So physiognomy check, like, as a mother with an extremely large head. You do not. I literally do have a very big, I'm in a bubble head. I, look, we people call it I'm team Michelle on this. I don't think Michelle what is being a mother have to do with it because I think she gave
Starting point is 00:48:55 birth to those girls fair and square. Sure. And I don't I don't think Michelle is a biological man. I just think she's a kind of manish looking woman, which respect. Do you think Barack Obama is gay? Gay coded. I thought about this a lot. In the last 24 hours. Many people are speculating that he's like a classic download brother. Yeah. Who's like freaky geeky or whatever. I just think he's a classic male Leo and male Leo's will do anything for attention, including
Starting point is 00:49:38 front for president. Getting their dick sucked by their personal chef. For attention. For attention. Not because they gay. They're not gay, they're worse. They're sexual opportunists. Yeah. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:49:55 He doesn't seem gay to me. Never really did, but I buy a... He seems like he likes to finger up the butt. But who among us doesn't? I'm sorry, I have to know what I'm not projecting it's not a personal statement. I mean it's okay it's fine. Also, it's 2024. Braw being, it's like a Peewee Hermanass, Pauli Morphusle perversky, is honestly the most genuine and relatable thing about him. And that he smokes cigarettes.
Starting point is 00:50:35 Yeah, and then he smokes cigarettes. He just like me for real. And I like that his kid smokes cigarettes too. Yeah, I love his daughters really won me over because they're so like, gawd and they're always like, papped smoking cigarettes. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:50:51 Yeah. Which seems like something honestly that like nice middle class black girls would not do. Smokes eggs. Yeah. Yeah, it's cool. It's definitely smoking sigs for sure. Indoorst. Yeah, they're like the black Mary Kate and Ashley They're like going to having a birthday party with like bowls of cigarettes But they're I think one of them works on like writers or I don't know their names
Starting point is 00:51:23 Malia Malia and Sasha. Okay. How did I know that? I mean politically informed. More than I am. No. That all.
Starting point is 00:51:36 I don't know. But yeah, I don't know. I love that for Brock. That is Kinsmok's SIGS. Or that he's... He get it. Both. Brock that is kids mooks eggs or that he's he get a boat Yeah, I'm sure I don't have a you know, I don't know I don't know I don't have a chip on my shoulder about the Obama administration No, I just don't think about it too much. No, I don't either. I don't really have hate in my heart for Brock or Hillary
Starting point is 00:52:01 No, I don't either. I don't really have hate in my heart for Barack or Hillary. Anymo. There was a yeah. I definitely remember when I was more like, like I would definitely have both of them on the podcast. For sure. Def, they would never come on in large. But open invite.
Starting point is 00:52:23 Well, Barack is an attention horse, so as he gets older and more desperate, he's liable to do anything. That's true. Yeah. Well, suck your dick. No, I think, I mean, I basically think Hillary Clinton is kind of a trojus, but I don't care enough. I can't.
Starting point is 00:52:59 I just can't, I just, I'm really preoccupied with the bulbs right now. So everything else is. But that's why we need Donald Trump to regain the presidency so that he could put the... Put her in jail. So he could what? Put her in jail. Lock her up and bring back the ball. Bring back the ball. And the board and you cry.
Starting point is 00:53:19 That should actually be his... I'm a single. I'm a single. Make America great. Again, bring back the balls. Single issue for you. I am a single man. Like make America great again, bring back the bulbs. Single issue for you. I am a single issue voter. I would vote for, I'd vote, honestly,
Starting point is 00:53:32 the way Ron DeSantis been accidentally got me feeling bad for him. Why? Because I'm an empath, you know? No, because he seems really uncomfortable. He's like, not God, it would be so weird if he seems really uncomfortable. He's like, not... God, it would be so weird if he was the president. I won't never say never. And like, and sometimes I walk, I'm walking around.
Starting point is 00:53:53 Having Ron DeSantis as president would be like similar to having like a mataglacias or Richard Hennonia as president, just wouldn't hit. It would be bizarre. And he's a definitely like a bizarre guy, which I don't think they tried to suppress, and kind of gas him up,
Starting point is 00:54:17 business like, camelot, boop, boop. But he, I really do think that. Yeah, he's clearly really uncomfortable. He seems almost like he's in pain. He seems like he has IBS or like Crohn's. Yeah. And there's this like video of him like trying to drink a beer like a normal person
Starting point is 00:54:37 and you're like, ooh, this man is like, he's like an ex-files character. He's like disabled. Like something's wrong. He's like, Wrong disabled. No! That's right. Why didn't Trump go with, I never liked Desanctimonious. I like it because it's so, uh, extra.
Starting point is 00:54:53 It's so, it's so Byzantine. He has it. Yes, yeah. Wrong Desanctimonious and it's, I think, Meatball, Ron. That's Scott. I also, he missed opportunity, I think, with Sloppy Joe. I know, I know.
Starting point is 00:55:07 He never whipped that one. I've been saying this for years, like, why is it Sloppy Joe and not Sloppy Joe? Well, he used to call apparently, in that like, tell all that came out about the Trump administration a few years ago, I forget what it was called. Apparently he used to refer to Steve Bannon
Starting point is 00:55:24 as Sloppy Steve, so maybe he was like, for a period of time, for a period of time. what it was called. Apparently he used to refer to Steve Bannon as sloppy Steve. So maybe he was like, I was like, for a period of time. For a period of time. So maybe he was like, I was like, for a period of time. For a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time.
Starting point is 00:55:32 So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time.
Starting point is 00:55:40 So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time. So maybe he was like, for a period of time., Ronda Sabel, the Santard. You got a B.D. coming up. I'm gonna kill myself. Birthday girl.
Starting point is 00:56:03 Happy birthday month, Anna. You ain't seen nothing yet. Don't do it. I think Africa is cool because it's like the Wild West, but the wild East and like it presents a lot of opportunities for industrious and adventuring young men. It's funky. It sounds like a, you know, yeah. And that's historically world.
Starting point is 00:56:27 All, like, I think one of those guys who was in that Adam Curtis field, the Mayfair set went to Africa and did a bunch of like mercenary slash regime change stuff. And I feel like you could still do that in Africa. It's the last friend here. Well, I was gonna say that I still think anything can happen in America. I really do believe that. That may be true. I mean, yes, I agree with that. But I think I'm not the way anything can happen in Africa. Yeah, I think that if you're like an ambitious
Starting point is 00:56:57 young man with a taste for blood, and blood, you could really make your name in Africa right about now. People are setting their sights on all the wrong places. We need to go back to Africa. It seems like we're setting our sights on. That's not a set. Yeah, well, it's just, you know, it's so big. Yeah. And so much of it is so like there's there ain't nothing going on. It's so big and plastic. No. It's so big. Yeah, really interesting history. It's just yeah, intrigues me for a lot of time. Yeah, it's like another one of those things
Starting point is 00:57:50 where you hear about it in the news and because you're an impressionable dog-brained woman. You're like, I would love to learn about Africa. I'm gonna look into the pre-colonial history of Africa and then you're like I'm so nervous. Yeah. Buy more light bulbs on eBay, pay any price. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:58:11 Because the thing, the incandescent bulbs, they don't last that long. Well, yeah. So, I don't know how long I'm gonna make it until Trump gets back. I need enough light bulbs to last me until another Trump presidency. I mean, I will become life bulbs to last me until another Trump presidency.
Starting point is 00:58:25 I mean, I will become vocal. If things get dire, I will become more vocal and I will, I might do something drastic. Like what? Like what is the opposite of E. Goeter. Kill yourself accidentally dying your layer. Self-indulcing. Surrounded by incandescent bulb.
Starting point is 00:58:44 Burn myself when I canandescent ball. Hahaha. Fucking brand-in. But apparently the economy's doing well. That I don't know about. Apparently I know nothing. I have no opinion. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:59:00 Um, I hear inflation's down. And like, I don't know Apparently we were a prospering currently I don't know it seems like one of those things that happens Yeah, it seems like the economy like abs and flows and sometimes it's up and sometimes it's down. That is so true. Yeah. I gotta go to the UN and find out if other countries have stock markets. I still have a button answer that question and everyone clowns on me for asking me if it like no one's answering me.
Starting point is 00:59:38 It would be funny if you got like Kishoggi at the UN. What's Kishoggi? That journalist who got chopped up in this already an embassy in Turkey. That guy, that's not happening at the UN. I'm gonna go. Yeah, you have to do it through it. As soon as I unpack. Yeah.
Starting point is 00:59:58 How long do you reckon it'll take you to unpack? Well, it's like a Kormac McCarthy novel. Yeah, the heart of darkness is like a long winded and biblical climb apartment. I'm taking it, you know, it's a process. They bent the bins that the moving company provided me with. Well, hold up. They provided bins. Bins. And they left them in your house. And then they come and get them once you unpack. So you don't what kind of moving company are you using? Okay, final. Amplify.
Starting point is 01:00:28 Is there a piece of cake, movers? Oh, okay. Those guys are Bosniaks. They're sir boys. Sorry. They're branding is so American. Yeah, they're a Balkan babe. And they're really strong and they come and get all your shit
Starting point is 01:00:50 And they they do damn damn good work. They were a little Uncoothed with my house plans, but that's okay. I think they'll bounce back because I've great light in my new apartment Mm-hmm, and how's plans do you have? I have a lot. I fancy myself a bit of a I like made a decision Much like I did with chess to like keep my to call to me to cultivate my plans and like yeah have Life and in my in my living space. And so I, yeah, I, some of them are, yeah, not doing so hot, but they're bouncing back. And I mean, I don't, yeah, none of them are like particularly exotic, but some have grown quite long and like, viny and cool.
Starting point is 01:01:46 Plants are like, women to me, a mystery. Yeah, it's not so hard. You have to like, water them. You water them. Yeah, I get a certain, that's different. The watering times are different. In the seasons, they're different. You have to water them less in the winter, maybe more.
Starting point is 01:02:03 I don't know. I have, I am in an, as an empath, no, I just sort of into it kind of like, I'm like, oh, this seems, you know, I water them, I water them roughly once a week and I try and get them into a nice light. Yeah. And that's about it. It's not so hard. Yeah, just like come home drunk and peel. It feels bad when they die. I haven't had one diome in a bit, but it definitely is like fog. I don't have any plants to see, but I just cast one out into the recycling. I think the climate change. Because my house is not recycling. No, I don't.
Starting point is 01:02:45 And it was one of those like plants that's like, whatever, like a desert plant, it's like uniquely resilient, but like you don't have to water, like you have to water it like once a year. Yeah, yeah. I could have counted it. It's just about, it gives my mother your baby,. You're fine. I have seven plants and 600 light bulbs And and I'm doing great and I'm learning every day Yeah, I didn't like I just got a really bad education.
Starting point is 01:03:27 I like really didn't learn geography. I didn't learn maths and sciences at all. Yeah. Because in Las Vegas, public schools, they just assumed you'd be a cocktail waitress. Yeah. Basically, yeah. So I thought you just had a black jacket or whatever they're in father. So there's, yeah, there's a lot I don't know, but that's, I think it's a secret strength. It enhances your feminine mistake. We as women don't have to
Starting point is 01:03:56 know about math or geography. And my child like wonder, like, yeah, if I got that positive mental attitude, you know, it's not so bad being totally stupid. And maps her arbitrary and drawn by colonial overlords anyway. So who's to say? Yeah. Yeah. What the world even really looks like. I'm going to get a globe. Because I'm so curious. I'm just so curious. You should. I used to have one in my old place. Do you ever spin the globe and like put your finger on the floor? Of course I'd come on. Let's globe 101. And yet, didn't know, obviously, it was not looking at that globe too closely.
Starting point is 01:04:39 There's only 195 countries. That's low. I thought there'd be more. But that's manageable. I could definitely learn about everyone. Why isn't Palestine in the UN? It's not a real country. But they're always slapping Israel with the human rights sanctions, which are symbolic. But like against whomps then?
Starting point is 01:05:05 Yeah, I don't know. Against whomps is, I don't know. I don't know. Are the crimes being done then? That's my biggest people in Hennonia that he's a Palestinian. Frankly, I can't suffer that. Um...
Starting point is 01:05:18 I can't... Uh... Uh... I don't like Richard Hannoni yet. I know, nobody does. That's why this like expose doxing of him that came out, I was like, well no one likes that guy. So who cares if he puts it under a... Well, yes. It thin, very thin alias. Yes.
Starting point is 01:05:46 Richard Necrissite. Yeah. Yeah, no, I get it. I get it. My thing about this is that... But it's not Palestinian. I don't know. He was Palestinian.
Starting point is 01:05:58 I don't condone doxing of any nature against anyone, even my political enemies. I don't have any political enemies because I don't have any politics. But I feel like the worst thing that's going to happen to him is that maybe his publisher will drop the book, but I feel like his career probably won't suffer that much more otherwise. And it remains to be seen. It'll be interesting to see what happens. It seemed like just a big kind of honestly if I was a cunning publicist, I might commission of a piece on my client Richard Hanania. Yeah, it's like what Chris Rufo said where like he was like, I plant negative press about myself in the media all the time. Yeah, exactly. It's. And I was like, for real, you're not only a Straussian, but you're also a Mac Evalian.
Starting point is 01:06:50 Uh, possibly it could be an inside job, but will it really hurt him? It remains to be seen. Who didn't know he was racist? Right. I know. I know. I know. Like you're telling me that. What first time I'm hearing the first time I'm hearing this. I guess the worst thing you can say about that guy other than him being Palestinian is that, I'm sorry.
Starting point is 01:07:13 I'm like, Bap or Sailor, he didn't have the good sense to couch his racism in being funny. And also unlike them, he was angling for a spot in the mainstream. Right. Which is pathetic. I have no opinion on that guy. I don't know if I like him or not because I'm a woman.
Starting point is 01:07:37 You bring him up all the time. I didn't know who he was. Now I'm here in this guy. I'm out this guy all the time. I'm kind of peaked by his off putting in compulsive mind. I'm obsessed with it. I know you are, you are. But I can't bring him up all the time.
Starting point is 01:07:54 I can't say that I'm a fan. Well, yeah, much like Pearl Davis, I find him to lack a kind of singular charm. Essential charisma, yes. Yeah, exactly. But I will say, people's policy against doxing should extend to even the worst people in our sphere. Yeah, I agree. I agree. No one should be doxed.
Starting point is 01:08:19 Like that's the... I don't celebrate. Yeah. But I'd rather take that guy than all the journalist writing the hit pieces. Of course, of course, because they're the real scum of the earth. Let's be real. They really are. Yeah. I really need to Yeah, I
Starting point is 01:08:34 Take more migrants if we get the journalists out of here same same We can do like a prisoner exchange type thing. Yeah, we trade the migrants for the journalists like a prisoner exchange type thing. We trade the migrants for the journalists. I'm putting them in a work camp. Definitely. But Hanani, I just, I don't, he's never, I, I, I, I, he's never said anything that was interesting to me and he's said many things that I found,
Starting point is 01:09:04 yeah, annoying and off-puttingting like deeply ugly and off-putting Yes, yeah, just like we're really I think if you Um, I'll friend of mine saw him at the gym. I know Serm usual Yeah, and said he was really docksing the spoof now. No, no, no, but he was autistic I have but it's not Hanani. I don't even really see that as A docs though it is like a vipers journalistic whatever It's like because he already is so outwardly
Starting point is 01:09:35 racist that It doesn't feel significant that any aspect of his like online Behavior life would be expo like there's no there's no real Smoking gun and no one likes him anyway. Yes, so there's yeah, there's like really like very little follow and all this I think my issue is more with like the journalists again who Invent a lab or conspiracy theories to explain why other people are more popular, get more attention than they do, and they call it journalism,
Starting point is 01:10:12 and that's the means through which they get attention and gain popularity. I mean, it's like a... They don't build statues of critics. Yeah. So, they build statues of Richard Hannon. Yeah. of critics. They've been told that he's a Richard Hanon. He will go down in history as one of the most weird autistic racist guys that no one likes. I mean I guess some people must have some weird vognis for him. I saw in that PC I had that he used to work at McDonald's or something,
Starting point is 01:10:44 but he thought he was too he was bad at it because he was too high IQ He was actually the guy from that delicious taco story About the McDonald's and plimuth mass that people were piling on me Yeah, yeah, that they thought you somehow had a vacation home in plimmouth, Mass. First of all, stay off Instagram. That's not what we're doing. Don't worry about what I'm doing on Instagram. I know, I know.
Starting point is 01:11:11 Don't worry about what I'm doing on Instagram. That's the place where I post selfies and close friends' picks of my baby where I'm free to roam and people are really nice to me. It's my sanctuary because it's so low stakes and upbeat. Yeah, I'm moody posting song lyrics and stuff. Don't worry about that stuff. Yeah, I'm like, I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear.
Starting point is 01:11:37 I'm like, that's why I regress into my like Tumblr mindset and post like some cool like abject picks. I said online or like, I mean, I made a whole separate Instagram from my religious posts. I remember that, yeah. Because people found that to be so annoying. So yeah. Just yeah, don't worry about,
Starting point is 01:12:01 don't go through my Instagram story. Don't even look at my Twitter. Don't even just don't worry about what I'm not doing it for you. I'm doing it for me. Who's doing this for me? It is. It's like who is coming through your Instagram stories. It's so fucked up.
Starting point is 01:12:19 Yeah. Like leftist. And such like loser pathetic behavior. Yeah. I thought all you left is was supposed to have a friggin job Yeah, cuz they're like Working for pro labor. Yeah, I like I do construction in my hard hat I'm a union construct
Starting point is 01:12:39 Launch break from the assembly line looking at Anna's Instagram story. And by the way, I've worked every thankless job there is to work. That's like a soft female job to work. And the reason I posted that excerpt from delicious tacos is because it reminded me of that point that well back once made about the pointlessness of physical suffering. Because there's this like common wisdom that like physical suffering, because there's this common wisdom
Starting point is 01:13:06 that physical suffering is supposed to bring you closer to your humanity and teach you a lesson about having gratitude for life or whatever, but actually physical suffering is senseless and sucks. No, we can dispute this point, but I thought that the fact that well- well back brought it up was quirked up I'm so drawn oh But taco saying that working like a thankless minimum wage job
Starting point is 01:13:40 Also, yeah, that's so true. I Used to work in the stock room of pure one imports. I'm like, God. Yeah, I was an unpaid intern at like a magazine and used to have to like go like climb a ladder and some fucking storage closet. And I used to just think about falling off and dying every day.
Starting point is 01:14:03 Yeah, literally like they really ratcheteted up your suicidal ideation. And by the way, my parents never put me up to having a job because they were asked the aristocrats who like literally did not pay attention to their children. I got my first job at 15. Same. Uh, for the legal one was what was the legal age for it was 15. Yeah, New Jersey. It was 14.
Starting point is 01:14:29 What was your first job? My first job was at a dance store at a mall called Market Fair. Clogs? No, it was like a ceramics like dinner where a show. Okay. You were retail. I worked retail. I was like a stock girl and then a cashier. And then my second job was at the Pier One imports on Route 1. Yeah. I worked really like down market jobs because I never Never occurred to me that you could have a career Well, you were a teen that's I was a teenager and I don't have to get money for like snacks and treats Yeah, I was a my first I was a courtesy clerk
Starting point is 01:15:17 which is A grocery bagger at Vaughn's yeah, which is a West Coast grocery chain. And that was really fucking sucked. I had to wear a tie. I had to wear a tie. I had to wear black dickies, a shirt and tie and an apron. That sounds cute. It sounds very brandy, Melville.
Starting point is 01:15:45 But then I had to go collect the carts in the parking lot. Yeah. In Las Vegas, which gets like- Which is not a job for a woman. A 15-year-old. That's a man, a girl, a teenage girl, out there like wrangling carts and bagging people's groceries and shit
Starting point is 01:15:59 and cleaning up like spills. That's sexually precocious teenage girl who should be wearing fishnets. Exactly. To shackle me in a tie. And some kind of in-drage in his uniform. Yeah, and I was like extremely surly full of rage. Made no money.
Starting point is 01:16:20 I remember, yeah, the first paycheck. Like, because I made like four dollars and half. You get a paycheck and be like $11. I got the fuck working fucking sucks. And then I worked at a library. Then I got a job at a library. Wait, why did you get these jobs on your own volitioner? Because your parents put you up to it. Mm.
Starting point is 01:16:43 Like kind of a combo of both. Like my parents didn't give me money, so I needed money. Yeah, my parents were never like strongly like, you need to get a job and learn the value of work, but they made it very clear that they wouldn't give me money unless I, the unruly teens, this hootin' in hollarin'.
Starting point is 01:17:02 They're back. They're back. They've moved from Union Square. I'm my location, which I will not dox. There's no PS4s here, boys. I got fired from the library. I got fired from the library. Cause I didn't, I was a clerk there as well. I put the books back.
Starting point is 01:17:33 I was not a librarian obviously, because I didn't go to library school as a teen. You have to have an MFM, M-A. You have to be like a library scientist. So it's similar to being a race scientist. You have devil out of credentials to back up your claim. You can check the books out, I guess. But I, yeah, I, it's a certain point, stopped putting the books back where they were supposed to go,
Starting point is 01:18:02 which was literally my holy job. And then I just kind of would put them back wherever I felt like they should go. And eventually my like boss caught wind and like marked some books to see where I was putting them. And I was like, oh, the scrolls were torn. I just don't know how to read or calendar something. So they let me go. And then I had a great job at a Korean style frozen yogurt store called Tarte. I wore a tank top that's a Tarte. And sexy.
Starting point is 01:18:39 Were you underage? Yeah, I was still in high school. And my homeless boyfriend used to write his skateboard or the yogurt shop See how we the point is we've worked I was a waitress for fucking years. You were a host of hostess for years We've been we've been having jobs and we're here to say there's no inherent dignity And there's no inherent dignity in there's no inherent my Working I should eat job my boss at my host sing job used to mock and humiliate me by making me
Starting point is 01:19:15 Douse a like fabric napkin like a serviet and vodka and wipe down the windows Serbia and vodka and wipe down the windows What like publicly as people are filing into the restaurant because she wanted to like show me up for being insubordinate and quote reading books Yeah, yeah that attitude but I didn't have my fill of like bread sticks and espresso's unlimited. I Yeah, I mean I worked at four different friend restaurants and the one I worked at the longest, bad meat, great, and I was always eating. Yeah, I... Holland, they saw... You really, you really look forward to the communal meal that they feed the staff.
Starting point is 01:19:56 And there is there, I will say there is like dignity in waitressing. I mean, it's nice to serve people. I mean, the other thing I will say is like Whoever hired my ass as a hostess. I completely do not have the personality for hostess You're like you're back Well now you're a podcast hostess Girl you kind of do don't tell yourself short. I bet you were you know Lovely enough You kind of do. Don't tell yourself short. I bet you were, you know, lovely enough. It was okay.
Starting point is 01:20:27 You were okay. I mean, have you heard about Balkan's geopolitics? I'm kidding. And I worked with all Italian men, not Italian American, like Italian migrants, who are all strangely married to black women. That was their thing. It was very felini satiricon, Danielle Luna.
Starting point is 01:20:45 Interesting. An interesting slice of life. The last vestiges of the mob were up in that restaurant. They would come in there and pick fights with local bug men. Bukies. You could really spin a novel out of that should you want to, which I totally don't. I think in I love dick
Starting point is 01:21:05 She waitresses for a while and what oh, yeah, I could I Chris Kraus book And writes about it sort of while and like Yeah, mostly I hated it. I was extremely content Chris many people wrote lengthy yelp reviews about what a fucking bitch But there was, if I was in a good mood, I really took pleasure. And it's nice to be in someone's life in a brief and limited capacity and just be kind of like a night, just being like, I'm just a nice, as far as you know, I'm just a nice-ass girl. A source of positivity. Yeah, like I seem like I'm happy to see. And you?
Starting point is 01:21:50 And it's like, it's a possibility. It's a process to my experience. It's a process to me. Yeah, and a cheer, and then, well, yeah. Well, we all know what I got up to later, but I was very, yeah, if I was cheerful, I was a great waitress. I was like, schmoozing, and it it was like and I did find satisfaction in just being something nice in someone's night. And it's always very nice in a service industry type capacity to play
Starting point is 01:22:14 chess with the clients. I never did that. Well you got to seat them in a strategic way. Oh you mean see them in a strategic way. Oh, you mean, what do you mean? Not play actual chess, play mind chess with the people that file in because all restaurants over book, which is a source of like, right, stress and anxiety, because you got to get them out before the next table comes. Yeah, yeah. Or you got to like butter up the next table, make them wait at the bar. butter up the next table, make them wait at the bar. I host this as well. And I mean, it's sort of fun.
Starting point is 01:22:50 It's barely stimulating, you know, to be like, it's fun because you get there at like 2 3 pm. You read, you're like racist and misogynist novel, and then you start accepting customers. And for a while there it was like me being the hostess and Leia being the coach at girl and we really had like a real racket going. Yeah and I like the camaraderie of a workplace. It's like competitive in a fun way because you
Starting point is 01:23:20 figure out a creative and industrious ways to extract tips from the local mafia. So you want to impress their gumars. A guy once gave me an $100 tip for hanging his mistress's fur coat and then asked me on a date later. Should've married up, man. Yeah, he sounds like a catch. He was hot, his name was Richie, he was like a... Hello. Yeah, he sounds like a catch. He was hot. His name was Richie.
Starting point is 01:23:46 He was like, uh, hello. Yeah, hi. Yeah. Richie, have you heard of a red scare podcast? You can, I used to eat food on people's plates when they live. Which is kind of fun. Yeah, like you do disgusting dog. You like sleep, fun, shit.
Starting point is 01:24:03 Yeah. Go to the bathroom, take pictures of your ass, whatever. Yeah, I did a lot. Yeah. Yeah, now the new, you know. I remember one of my fondest memories is when we started doing the podcast, and I was still a hostess, and I actually got like a laid off,
Starting point is 01:24:22 like fired for my hosting job because my boss came to me and was like It seems like your heart's not really in this. I guess what it's not. I have a podcast I'm out of here. The sky came to me and was like I Love your short haircut. It's so funky and cute and I was like Hey, all these people on the internet are roasting me. We're being a literal demon, but you've given me the will to live. That's sweet. You can always bank on older men, because they're too blind to see you for what you really
Starting point is 01:25:00 are, which is like a horrid and wretch agenda golf. Who's trying to subvert cultural norms? That is so true. I forged an intimate friendship with now deceased avant-garde composer Harold Baud. I remember that, yeah. Because he was a regular at this restaurant that I worked like a really slow lunch shift at
Starting point is 01:25:29 and eventually he would just come in. He would be like, the only person there. And he was always like kind of like a horny, sweet old man. He would like a day drunk and stuff. And like it seemed to like me very much. And yeah, one day I was like, Harold, what'd you do before you retired? And he was like, I'm not retired, I'm a famous composer.
Starting point is 01:25:54 And I was like, oh damn, you're literally Harold Bud. That's crazy. And at another time I asked him, I had a boyfriend at the time who was like turning, it was his 30th birthday and I was like, wait, I hold her, like 21. I was like 23, 24. But I asked Harold what he did for his 30th birthday and he was like, I don't remember. He was like, when I turned 50, he was like, I abandoned my family and moved to Europe
Starting point is 01:26:27 and it was the best decision I ever made. And I was like, wow. He's the best guy ever. Let me ask you this. How did you apply to jobs? Like, how did you learn about them? What kind of application materials to do you submit? Yeah, well at the library it was a little more intensive because it was a government job so they like drug tested me and everything. I don't remember.
Starting point is 01:27:01 I mean that must have been hard. I know some jarg. I know I was stressed. I was sweating. You're like, mom, can you pee in a cup for me? It's like, what's the point? This is the chef, no, they actually did a hair test, which I was like, fuck, I was like, they're never gonna hire me at the library because I take opiates or graze.
Starting point is 01:27:20 You are not a natural blonde. But randomly, whatever, maybe a hair test is kind of bogus because I definitely was on drugs and passed. I Craigslist, I definitely got jobs off Craigslist. But Vaughn's, I think, I don't know. I guess that we just closed to my house. You go online. You look upon your life now.
Starting point is 01:27:51 Is a 30-something year old, and you think like, damn, I could have been sex-martored so many times, and I just didn't take the chance. Well, I got once very close in As a karaoke host I was literally like locked in a room While some like Korean or Armenian Russian Russian like straight up the scary like guys wearing like tracksuits with like tricky otomies and like little bangs Like the scariest like fuck was fucked up guys like scar like scariest guys who
Starting point is 01:28:28 definitely like murdered people. Like we're acting really sketchy and then a Korean waiter came and like locked me in a room and I just waited there for like 30 minutes and like let me out. But like I don't know what. Maybe it was trying to save you. Maybe they were like, the lib maybe they just thought I wasn't worth it or what wasn't worth trafficking me or something, I don't know. Or like this woman will have a podcast one day
Starting point is 01:28:58 as we need her. She will sound off against the migrant crisis. We need her to do Russian interference She will be pro-Russia an anti-Ukrain. Therefore she must live. Yeah, there was psychic. But yeah, I'm sure we've all brushed up against the edges of a so adorable fate. I don't know. Yeah, maybe. You know, you know.
Starting point is 01:29:27 I mean, I've told my, almost getting raped by a guy with a stump story many times on this podcast. So, frankly, I don't remember it now. And it's not my fault, so I don't have any trauma about it. Thank God for all the brain damage we've had. Yeah, it's on his side. I don't know where I'd be without it. Thank God for all the brain damage. Yeah, I was honest, I don't know where I'd be without it. Yeah.
Starting point is 01:29:48 Um, females humble bragging about how their desire of all being like, I almost got raped by like a weird Russian guy with tiny bangs and or a Mexican glue sniffer with a literal stump for an arm. Jellies. Ladies. Yeah, it's, I don't know, it's tough out there for, for women, for service industry workers. Yeah, we should start our own union for who? Mm-hmm. It could be like, we could start our own union for who? Mm-hmm. It could be like a
Starting point is 01:30:25 we could really be like political competition to Burkina Faso. Should we go on strike? I've been on strike my whole life, girl I'm spiritually on strike at all times. Yeah, I Know what you mean. Yeah. I just...
Starting point is 01:30:48 I literally refuse to do what's good and healthy. For me at all times. I can't even put the fucking books back, dude. So it just was like so adolescent and like just such disregard for like a whole system and like Society like so anti social actually to just be like I'm not I know that I'm not putting the books I know this is how the library works, but I will not eat the bugs I will not sleep in the pod. I will not put the books bad I will not do the bare minimum that is required of me
Starting point is 01:31:26 for this job I've been employed to do. That's why I'm anti-racist because I know where they're coming from because I'm just like, oh my god. Oh my god. Yeah. Well, honestly, when I read that Chris Proof-O-Book, I did find the, obviously the Black Panthers are incredibly sexy aspirational aspirational and I was like If I was black I would be I'd have such a bad attitude
Starting point is 01:31:56 I'd be so mad. I'd be sorry. I'd like to chip on I'd such a chip on my shoulder As a white girl like I'd such a chip on my shoulder. As a white girl, like I as like a, you know, a small void as a small void. I like, yeah, I have weird like antagonistic feelings for like Scandinavians, because I think they think they're better than me and something like. I am like, I'm like a vicious and angry person. I think it's legitimate to hate Scandinavians because they're among some of the worst people in the world. They suck.
Starting point is 01:32:30 They suck at that. I can give some credit to Germanics, but Scandinavians really suck because they do that thing where they hide behind their socialist pities to like condescend to other people and undermine them because they just feel better. Yeah, and they're really not. They have like a seamless, frictionless life that's like rife with like suicide and mass shootings. They're kidding themselves.
Starting point is 01:32:56 It's actually a very like, well, yeah. And all that Stockholm street style, it's a myth. They look like shit, no offense. Hey, dude, they're wearing a cost and and other stories. I agree Dude, they don't have they don't have swag. They don't have style. They're like are living in a fucking dream They have no idea what's going on Hmm, I'll say again if so many times Even though I'm on a I love all the countries tip, I don't like Switzerland, I still
Starting point is 01:33:28 don't like Switzerland. Big euthanasia hotspot for a reason and I think it's this culture of neutrality, of like, faux neutrality, that's actually the most cruel. And it's actually white supremacist. I don't even care about that. No, it's just like condescending. Exactly. And it's because they've literally not suffered
Starting point is 01:33:51 any major loss. And like, yeah, like, twerking, like, stupid, IKEA fucking aesthetics. Everything's kind of like, because it's like rounded edge. It's like, it's like Mary Meco or whatever. Exactly.
Starting point is 01:34:07 Yeah. Okay, that show. It's like on the way to Eulie. In the flat iron district. Yeah, they, I just, yeah, they stand for nothing and that's, I think really, I think the worst part of how is really reserved for people who stand for Scandinavian. For just people who stand for nothing.
Starting point is 01:34:30 You can't even take a fucking side. You do look at certain aesthetics or an imagery like Lenny Reefenstahl's photography of the Nuba people. And you're like, man, these people are chads. They're like moisturized in their own lane thriving. They have beautiful bodies, a beautiful culture. And then you look at Scandinavians and they're like weird, impish, vargle like souls. Sick. Look like Edward Snowden. Every person in skin may be like,
Starting point is 01:35:08 Edward Snowden. I feel like, I feel like our hatred of the scandies will be. I'm see the code in his cope, but I think they're vastly overrated. They're not as hot as people say they are. Definitely not. Not to me.
Starting point is 01:35:25 Well, I don't like an adult male blonde period. I find the women a little charmless myself. I mean, yeah, I prefer a swarrow to myself. Same. Can't help it. Piercing blue eye does nothing for me. Gotta be honest. Unless it's like the piercing blue eye
Starting point is 01:35:48 of like a black Irish type person. Yeah, yeah, even, yeah, sure. Even then, I'm like, I'm down with the blue eyes, believe it or not. I believe it. Sometimes I can find them maybe striking, but but mostly no mostly I find them creepy and Loki like beady and actually like a weird Signifier of like weakness
Starting point is 01:36:15 Hazel's about his light as I like I like to know. Yeah, Hazel's a nice for me the scandys You know like Jews have a bad reputation for being like Nebys and neurotic, but scandys are actually very like, they have like a low tolerance for discomfort. Exactly. And are like fundamentally like flinchy. They're flinchy. It's hard to really, you know, extract pure lace. We're over in general terms, but I think, um, for me, sloths. Yeah, same.
Starting point is 01:36:48 But ethno-narsisist, whatever. Through and through. Through and through. I do, I think the sloths are uniquely gifted, special. I think the women are the prettiest. I think the men are the men are the sexiest. Even when they're disgusting, bloated, pieces of shit. Yeah.
Starting point is 01:37:09 The Slavic men really hurt. Because they're brutal and indifferent. Yeah. Um, and I like, And also men, I like Balkanoids, I really do. I, I, I, I, I, I, Balkanoids are cool.
Starting point is 01:37:19 We vibe with them. Part of the Slavic diaspora. I'm gonna cut this but I like don't love the caucusoids. Why are you cutting this? I mean I may not be. It's the Armenians always pile on me when I say bad things about our race. Right right. I like Armenians. Armenians are nice. They're they're mercantile. They're low IQ Jews. Oh, IQ Jews. Yeah. Which we can appreciate, because they don't have the same overactive inner monologue.
Starting point is 01:37:53 I'll never quit the Jews I never well. No, no. At the end of the day, I think you and I are both Jewish supremacists. To the Jews' favorite, they have the most beautiful and exotic variants of eye color that I've ever seen. Like, they straight up just have like a beautiful like dragon game of thrones ass eyes.
Starting point is 01:38:18 It's like green with like brown and then like red on the insider, like aqua blue with like, they've got glowing red-up-sblue. Yeah, they have like the devil. Right, dude. They've got those great horns growing out of their head. No one has more beautiful eyes than the Jews, except for maybe like the people of Afghanistan. I'm not not a fan of blue eyes,
Starting point is 01:38:43 but I'm not a sim fan of blue eyes, but I'm not a Simphor blue eyes either. I don't think I've ever even been with me like a seriously like a blue eyed person. Potentially. Think about it. Well, I've done it because I'm a swore the way it in, so they're like attracted to the opposite and therefore a seek out. Yeah. Yeah, I just like weird like dark ratty people. I love like, yeah. I love dark, I like guys with dark hair and dark eyes. What's the eye chart? Yeah, I think there's a portion theory with that. I think blue eyes are creepy.
Starting point is 01:39:32 I mean, extremely dark and black and godless, I, is the same thing as like a... the piercing blue eye of a Siberian husky. It means that you are destined for great leadership roles. Yes. Yes. Oh god. Well, I'm very... Like the most annoying and irritating for the worse. We really, really, we suck.

That's completely, yeah, that's their whole culture, dude. Yeah, it's like an anti-style,
Starting point is 01:40:31 it's like coldness, masquerading is warm. Yeah, as like, design.
