How does that come about you know I love onerous Thomson and so lightly. Articles, I was doing words like my poor man's imitation of a participatory. Sure Gonzalo Journalism in an saw started down that route in and then I an idea for an article. I saw some

That's not helping Jeff now, the time, but there is a year was it was pretty. Similarly, I once was in an off road race and dumb mean I had some nerves about it and, as I pulled up, the guy who started the race had a claw in his face was completely melted because
he had caught fire in an off road eyes and he was he's the last thing you see every razor sees, as you wish and I was like I had prepared for maybe a rotten stiff, back or a broken bomb, but nothing it might be melted here. Yes, it was, it was very disturbing. Does it feel confident knows maybe at the finish I knew bring that guy out. He should be given everyone the chequered flag, but not I have a good race yeah when you something anything. on those lines. You have to commit anything that so like that you see some ones. Tell you not to do it adjusts its. I can't even more, for instance, a day of someone's negative on the set. Aha we'll just I won't you pull the plug
a man would do it another time? Ok, and so can you compartmentalize the death like you can just remove that from your brain as an option Jai. I don't go there like a few days, you think about that new ago you gonna go over all the bad things. It can happen, but is it gets closer? I just try to calm down and in my magical thinking kicks and then, whatever fears left I just override, but is which is not the healthiest thing ever ever, but I think it's rare to be able to do that. Yeah. People, the closer you get the more hives round, rambling yeah yeah. What as I only have two yeah? What is going on
we're on before we move on his is, is as a kid were, you would dare devil, or is it something that you decided fuck it I have to? I have to be willing to do whatever the it takes two to be successful journalism or be successful in another area, or were you always that I wouldn't like rowdy a sky in the class, but I I was pretty rowdy Shari, my my father best explained it to rolling stone it asked, and why does it do what he does he thy? Well, you ll get dominican baseball player, hearing or get off that I when by button and probably a really grandma, I why I was at that point like I have daughter.

There
when I was a doom builder, grocer river, deepen why she had wailing way and his soul, I mean Just- was handsome guy, amazing boys in a wonderful guitar player, and he was really use outlaw country. Guy he's also up a punk. You have to know he always very. He was upon grog he'll billion weirdly liberal too, for that seem like he was here.

Gonna feel at forty YAP add if they get that's really special to you, and I think that's just how kids are yeah. I saw them.

The long term effects of drugs right- and I just wasn't that concerned about Well, if you're taking them you're, not gonna like the people, they were concerned, weren't taking them ass, we we didn't have those concerns, has obviously
you have this video. I see it it kind of all around Hollywood and then you magically yet somehow you get MTV to get on board and how did they deal with the liability of that they only had to do. whether for nine months in the night with the shell. Oh, you dear, why because we unfortunately had some copycat incidents all people got, hurt, yeah ran away, you did it was an election year. Joseph Liebermann picked our show an me personally come down on in making Washington came down on by a car. the only really and a guide impossible to do the show, only air for nine months, but they buy them in blocks of eight, and they call that eight. season, even though it may be. Last three minds by the time, the third season that you know we're entire six month. They all these lawyers were on it and we shall get jump up. Anything
or feeder hire a home. When what we, what do we do? how'd you know it. So I Sorry, I didn't. None of us wanted to do a wired version of the show, so I just quit empty views very upset, the contractually they certainly had you legally for five or six or seven years right, yeah, probably by read the contracting ass clear and but out of that came that's a good result is we did the movie and then there are the Then we could do whatever we want it cause. It was our rated in well it opened up. We could do the things we couldn't do until a vision always still were delusional. In my mind, there were many season, twenty four episodes that you shot on it once and then you never did it again here. Twenty four episodes over nine months, maybe their endeavours to specials. So twenty six in that's it, but they aired it for yeah I'm completely twelve years. If you would
ask me how many years that shows on how many seasons, I would definitely thought six or seven or eight, was on fire and yet they desire. He ran those Abkhazia here, women that kind of rooms. One of my questions, because the most exciting thing for me is I'm a long time fan of Brad Pitt. I'm so in love with him. I can't stand it. Yeah and fucking. Brad Pitt was on the show when he asks out right. You guys are abducted him yeah. We did two things with him, so hit clearly, it is aired enough for him to see it to them. I assume that call came- from him right. You guys want sit Rondonia. We should reach out to Brad Pitt, or did you now I was, I think, he was it spikes one day when we started talking spike, it already talk to him about it. Ok, I think spike may be said, hey Brad Pitt up for doing something. but it had never yet aided already. It already been on telling
I'll cover couple three months? Ok, so he had some sense of what he was saying: yeah in and he came on the set in. We first would you we did. The thing worry dug up. Duct, Emma should sing, it didn't run the hot dogs, the hot dog place, hangers picture and then we put him in a gorilla and we we're just by the hill on buying in yucca in shopping, cart. Right, not shopping cart. It was like little or no little, or wheelers or something, and we were all. I worried you to kill, Brad original treasure, yeah. You don't need to get hurt. May we need you to because we are all concerned such a good guy in Sharm amusing. He had an idea, but no he just
soft down the middle of the street of words. Anyone can get him to stop. He was down yes, yes, yes, so well, that's the thing even over delivers doesn't mean that son of a bitch yeah. You couldn't be any disease, a great guy he's from Oklahoma or some shit. Missouri Missouri area, so he's he's Lytton some shit on fire. I think out in the woods yeah he's were ease. Rowdy yea, he's ready, we loved everybody loves, did across your mind, like we got a wolf, we gotta get a minute We gotta get that top off a sap. No, we put him in a gorilla mosey earlier than the guy on the planet. It ain't covered him up in a gorilla suit you in the opposite direction. every idea. What have we been set in a swimming pool, yeah, but IRA heart beat reality. I don't blame you earlier minimally rain, emu, no yeah that sheer seeds rudely act that can be almost better than the shorter yeah. So what is your like? You know
it. Is your ego and your identity doing in that moment we start this little thing it's impossible and then all of a sudden you do you have the biggest focused on planet participating in your little show. What what are you? What's that experience like it was pretty overwhelming. You know tat it for a few for a few years it was did you feel like you're living someone else's life by Jes? You know like we're talking about earlier, be careful how you choose your heroes, aha, because sight while they were living it up here. so I should probably live it up that takes at all after awhile. Aha in we have a real it at some point. Yeah, Well, I got to say again having been a fan of yours and looking at you, the outside also having the relationship I've had with drinking in doing dry. your fascinating to me because you somehow like played around
the fire nonstop and then you just didn't go down. Yeah like right, you went is I will be as far as you can go without literally meeting to go to rehab or to be no ending up in jail or whatever the fuck, the things we do, and I remember watching you thinking like us in be the fuckin ride this unicycle. and then to my amazement, you're one of the handful of people that like got to do at hard and then somehow didn't go all the way People around you died right, yeah me too. I don't know. I guess I also had a kid. We saw that that kept me that kept me from going overboard. That's what you were yet ass! I did the dock with a little bit. She save save me yeah I'll. Do she now? Twenty two she's Redwing college? Have you ever told her that are set to work
conversation yet out be because you be admitting how much shit you did. I guess it would be too I don't know how I don't know how you deliver that that's a lot of energy coming at your child, held you know, that's a lot of pressure stuff till I oh! I recognize it actually be way more for you than for her think of my dad, who might I was a coke attic and then got sober and died sober. But if he had told me boy it wasn't for you, I would have gone although in died. I guess the other, maybe just maybe be weird yeah, but what I said at first that sounded really flattering like you would really warmer heart. Well, Yeah. You know I'd it will Let me let me let me coming from another angle. I think we'd all like to think we save someone's life before we die it's kind of a cool. Thank you. I, like you, we saw some whatever pulled somewhat of a car crash.
sue me. That's kind of up. You know like a really ubiquitous desire for us to save someone's life, but I'm really thinking the whole thing. Maybe she's an arm chair and shall find out there, but you said his name Spike Jones. He was involved right from the get go ye I what Jeff an outward trying to figure out what kind of show we wanted to do or trying to develop a tv show and then Jeff in Winter I saw a spike in Maryland. Siree IRAN's, I know, spike a little Evan him were really close at the time and he goes the shoe. We see a spike wanted to do this with this. The eye like yes, yeah at that point, what are you he had done the arm, the sabotage video yeah, I mean what are already highly video like so many huge videos. He was right. Any was just getting you may have been working on being John Mouth. But what would a what a lucky coincidence that speed,
Jones is in your circle at that time. Right all this as one of the most gifted human means alive do agree, yeah, no one hundred percent one hundred percent in he's not good at this or that, he's good at it. All. I've ever had died of the busy night. The business side irritate the creative. Ah, he he sees it. He said the whole field. Did you see her tat, brilliant?

I don't know what your expectations were just me again on the outside thinking other doing a movie me now that'll be curbed. What were your expectations?

No one's gonna come see it right so that's everyone yeah, so we Evelyn, the reality movie- I don't even know if what were a reality, features films that work I can't remember. I have no clue yes you're like, Basically, this is a documentary. You guys, using a dock. Mary documentaries.

Let's start, I is long dues to the point Why need to support my family right? You know, but I think again, if you, if you have a family, I can't not imagined feeling that way right cause. That's the centre of Europe, that's the sinner of your whole life! Yes, why they depend on you and you want to take care of them. Yet but where did you get a sense of relief when those movies did what they did? I I averages. I would be relieved that I'm still walking around Where was the relief at the end of every film of light? They thank God. I
you're, not in a wheelchair year, like I felt that way. The innovation point to the movie that you're yeah that's coming up June. First. What happened in that that you? Well, I do it's. It's was inspired by action Park, which was the most dangerous theme park. All time, don't use in sustain a forty minute, doc online that everyone should watch your nose like I'm, not gonna hassle, the kids with a bunch of rules, less leaf safety up to any did any of us a shit, what's day was this new Jersey and seventy days, our class action or jurisprudence yeah yeah in the documentary like what were people dying at this place, the other will there were some others, some of those instance all my goodness, TAT was all of us. Also Lahti injuries, the swimming pool. They had a couple of bad the way people they had a couple of instances you're an ape, ITALY painted the bottom of a black to make it easier to find?
by all my yeahs while I was there like a haunted house is this.

Probably a good idea so use are that documentary, and you said this has to be a movie e g, Derek Frida, sent me the documentary and he's like you have to see this. Aha, What inspired the movie and like I'm, I'm the owner of a dangerous theme park and that's a great world where I can do all my own stance and I ask the stunt guys I'm asking you to do like me, no cutting on the action, no pads re goin when I go into pads we're going to turn our concrete and we did.

Is it relief or is it excitement or both or what is it because I'm so scared of everything. So I can. I could never do that and I dont know what that feeling would be its. It's overwhelming relief and enjoy our having done something

The thing is: when you look at the sky, the guy has to be seventy five right, so I thought when he started cowboys fit that's a mega unless you right, no one fucking crunch. The numbers on this commercial disgracefully never been on a horse or anything but at least go. I've been cowboy from fifty right. I've I've! Well I mean you're.

Ok, you liked women. No right! I like em alot yeah. Would you say that, It was at the number one drug yeah that was that was now was part of it. ah ha, and how do you honey Shut it ask as I and my own personal journey with that yeah I just didn't, want to lose her. Ok, that's great, so that's my thing was it had run the same courses? Drugs had, and I didn't want it for me-. right. You know I'm saying so. When we met she's, I Christians, like I'm, not sure I could ever trust you really giving
your history and, unlike that silajdzic concern, I said the only thing I can say to maybe help you would be that I'm not can do it for you, I'm doing it for you and I'm in China sometime, and I don't think anyone knows me. You know who knows what I do if I think I can get away with it I said, but if it's for me I can't get away with this. For me, again? I don't know your experience was, but mine was you know towards the end before I met Christian and it was just like drugs Ok, I need to regulate how I feel right now right. Just like you drag, you think it making. You feel better harmed adds to your self worth. eighty hours is weird validate we're I muslins you're doing it all mine was like a minds addicted to validation. I worked like a pinpoint someone, I'm sure would never like me. This first went like me and then I go to task. Try
to win them over by being funny or dancing or whatever goddamned getting they want, and then I and then, if I can get The like me, I think, I'm gonna feel better about myself. You grew up euro, your dad. What did alcoholic garage I love women? Yes? Are you who's your model in you, and he also like you, always wanted. Why was alike in my wanted? Everyone, unlike me, because its yet out of an attic, and also I didn't do well with girls for a long time and then all of a sudden I started skateboarding. My brother made me: do my hair a certain way and started dressy mean? Certainly in and all these girls like Minos, I get the fuck out of here and it was. I couldn't stop rang. Didn't they never stop until yeah no eleven years ago, yeah cause. I wanted it so bad, like Elementary school, my bodies had girlfriends and stuff, and none of them like me, and you know all kinds stuff. I also think I got molested. I think that somehow ones do somewhere rolling over sexual eyes and that's rather, we gonna bet out of them.
but then I think it's all in the soup. For me, and mostly just the what you're saying approval, I want everyone alike. I want every girl that want to date me. I just can't get enough yeah. I will you brought up such like when I was for five. A you know thereby me play boys and know how and sit there and look at the play, boys and name every part. You know but that are their amazement that, but that is like it seem harmless at the time by its like by was sent my affair beside you you're you, your youth was kind of sexual. Eyes yeah, that yeah and also, as so many things that I think are awesome in their great stories about me. As a kid I imagine putting my own Fritz Ribbon, and now I realize oh Jesus. No, that should have never yeah yeah right whales, yet different time. I've been,
You guys- and you guys are such a really beautiful couple and you seem very, very happy around her and sketch a cool things I want to tell you know my personal, and I brought it up to you one time and I think I made you uncomfortable, if I may, nicotine using me anything right, yeah yeah, where the fuck me. I knew it how drugs insects, but I gotta have my nicotine gotta have something right now. I gotta have eighty milligrams, nicotine, a data function. How many? How much did you start on like, I said it is really like it had or twenty two days consistent. I do a sheet of these a day, sometimes a sheet and half, depending on a firm stressed about something that I use a smoker pack, and I have a cigarette today. So this much better. What's I'd like my cousin to stop doing drugs and alcohol in history, his drinking like a twelve pack of monster energy during all day. So I know what you're doing the same thing, with the nickname like now the how many sheets of that today one she that these are bad for you. They raise your blood pressure.
That's the single sites are not re, but I have moderate too low blood, proud, Zhang, I'm sure you'll come out the other side. body on the nicotine out. How dare you sitting there ivory tower telling I couldn't have negative, but here I personally, so I was a fanny years been. Then I had all these personal kind of weaving back and forth with you and it really started with me doing idiosyncrasy down in Austin in you had just finished a movie like a month before yeah I followed by agreeing the Ringer yeah yeah and you become friends with might judge- maybe even long before that, but you guys we're friends yeah it MIKE, and I were friends- and I really liked him in this- was my first bout of getting sober right. I got sober for that movie. Relapse after that, but during that movie I was sober rights and make an I got along so well, and I liked him so much idolize em up and then casually he'd have to break
for me as he go hang out with you, because I was, I may have some cocktails and I just always balmy out through no fault of anyone's just me going like we shall get Fuckin Party with judge, and I can't take that point. You couldn't be around it. Well now, Only could I could have perhaps been around it, but I don't think he would have felt great about it. Like you didn't want someone, that's can remember every right, no one's the do. That's gonna, remember the lie with them in Europe. At that time. I was much more. It was much bigger thing to me now I could give a fuckin. We you could small crack in farming, be fine, I think. What's try, and so So then, I think this little seed for me is planted like alma deeds. Cooler than me might judge likes him more than me right. So this is the foundation rye right right there you and I are both mutual friends with Jimmy Camel yeah.
I start kind of seeing new somewhat regularly over at his house. I want to say I see you like seven or eight times and when those times happened you're the only person I don't talk to their in. So I then did was it like a choice like you know, I would very much like again. I was a family yours, I very much would have loved to have talked to you and then probably all again, we come to this end. All admit this, in those times in those couple years of seeing you, I can call this insane story in my head, which is you you hate me and now I'm like. Well, that's obvious, the guy hates me. now, what could be one of the reasons it hates me? Why did you think I wasn't talking to you and per yes? Yes, another sure you were not talking to me right and one other time back into judged thing. I somehow went somewhere with him and there was a pool table bob newer there, and I also felt like you want to talk to me at that time, and so I had concocted this whole thing right where you don't like me,
now. I don't really have a reason why you don't like me right and then Ike. I decided. I had this like. Oh well, punk came right after jackass, so he thinks that we were ripping off his show in then. He hates me in all this thing and create this whole story about. Why you don't like me right- and I don't even know if you remember me saying this to you, but eventually- last year, I see you and I go I'm gonna be honest with you. I think you don't like me, and I am I am. I concocted this crazy story and I just had to deal with it because it was bothering me or anything you go no on unjust shy. I would I've never decided not to talk to your publishers. There were talk to you. I know I know I actually I don't remember you bring that up to me. I'm in so in my own little world and I also egg like in a public place. I get very uncomfortable
ah here shillings idea that yeah yeah, especially in crowds, and it seems like what you like at the time. So you see you it was like in a crowded. So I kind of shut down a little in crowded situations. Aha saw you didn't. I never had any reason to dislike you in as far as punk goes like any shows that did anything, I'm ever you guys hydro. Thank you now where's. He did you guys hadron thing going, but any shows that kind of did anything in our area I knew about by couldn't I didn't want to watch them in then subconsciously pick up something yes and then do it, and then I'm fucked, because, yes, I couldn't so I just there's, never saw, couldn't watch anything. It was in our area, I dont want to redistribute. I'm writing a script, because I'm a
Fraid, somehow those unclosing again and then I'm going to look like a rip somebody I hear you think it's an idea. For months later you don't even realise its memory and that a new idea- that's like I'm a young, Lord obsessive on that. I just can't write in its, maybe not rational, think I can go watch. Low shows now I just I just everything out well and also it it's all in its all on my side of the street, because not only did I can concur The whole story review you hated me right, yeah cause. I was biting style and ripping you up. I didn't mean that nothing is compounded by the fact that I liked you and so I know things about you I know you're into country. I know we both have a kind of weird obsession with like lower income white trash culture. If I can call that there's like some kind of the honey
miss Thompson thing. There's all these things. I thought. Oh you guys you and I would really see eye to eye on all this stuff and then I'll, throw in India a dose of like me being jealous that you could still party like somehow you. Cap on the rails and I didn't write the eye over on this side of the room. Having this super complicate her face, you share with you use yeah you set out a little absolutely its. I presented my head. You you don't even know any of this is go. I didn't know you were upset by me. I didn't know you guys I would have. If I known you, you were ups. If that upset outcomes, gave Yahoo lecturers. I just don't know Oh I'm so you're a nice guy, I'm in my own little and I used to say to him one like what
what does your interaction with Pga, like what's the basis of this friendship like I'm very curious about it, because I think this guy hates me like, I was really trying. It was all eyes. Are that no it's ridiculous, but I just want to admit it to you to your fear, as I feel like it might help someone else whose a lunatic about something else, and I also tat we could maybe relate on this, which I thought would be binding, is have you had this? you know you you, you started doing these stones in reality, tv and then you want to act and then do you do of the same like one I started doing movies in they were always bring upon. It would like really. Trigger me and, unlike I'm, not up just a reality whatever I had this huge com complex it. No one thought I was a real act or that I had that's what I was always trying to do, and I thought you had to have gone through that in that was something that we could bond over eight. I never would. Twitter cringe when someone brought up Jack Ass, a whole
When will you? I know it's silly, but it's always something I've been very proud of. Will you should in by the way, had I created Pont if ITALY What was my show? I was an actor, I'm punk, so it's not mine and I bet ya. If I had like that was my brainchild and I executed it. I probably would have carried a lot more and by the way, now, fifteen years, I'm crazy, proud of punked. Like I asked you were happy, I e on and grateful, but there was a period of time were I so desperately wanted to be one of these many actors that I was trying to model myself after a wanting to be- and I just felt like this thing's getting in the way our people wanted me to just be that thing. Yeah, did you do that? do you. Have you see a therapist sir Laminae sides? a but note there now hurry right now. You think I should go with you to Yale. Do we go? do dolls covering other rare, eyes. I had no idea, you were so upset it like. I am
yeah. You be like you just key wines absolve up into these things in the oil on his head just he gets triggered a native of irony in their tears. I am then we're here that we think though there was we get a real buying out. even if we got nothing well make, is that we are already start trying to entertain and no longer find the dew therapy absolutely trying to induce. You must see a man. Do you see a man? No, are you? Don't you see a woman sitting for me? There be counterproductive because again, I'd be trying to lie. Compressor were win her over in some capacity right, you're you that no age, just try b is honesty. You can, because otherwise, you know I'm just sitting there hanging picture frames right. How long have you been going to therapy well his eyes? I right before action. Point aye, aye, Sir ok, because I knew I was gonna have to go to a certain place right.
Wasn't gonna beer Polly be healthy place and I'm not gonna per ten here in therapy that the everything's great with me what is the internal monologue is you're about to do something like that. You have to say your affair, They are, if you don't do this is their like. I know I don't oh that direction. I just know that what I have in mind for the ELM and what that means in what that's gonna take, and with my stance I once I leave the ramp or jump off, so I don't know, what's gonna happen so yeah, I slept a kind of let go in my mind a little while I think Thyssen would go off antidepressants, leading up to fight the other man thirty vocal about. So it seemed something like in that realm yeah and who directed this one item. Kirkby English, director where'd. You find him
directed flee bag in you had consumed. That show. No, I didn't see until afterwards I had so I seen a filmy. Dear short, foamy did on the clash this girl obsessed with going to the clash, and she may the clash thought it was really well done so indeed you in. So let me ask you this because there's a director of the movie. There has to be a director of the movie, but this is so your world and your thing: how does that? How does that? How do you navigate that are like cool? yeah, but it's gotta go like this. He was TIM's very collaborative, and so everything was discussion between us that some things I stayed out of you. No, I don't
Cameras lighting here I don't like it, you can invest my energy that, because it's not my area, aha, but you know the I help right. The movie we had a few writers day, bachelor and John Chris. Ski are rose on Kerensky, not presidency, nor Kinsky. our guys so he's just a syllable away, a half frozen risky, but it's John Kerensky by we I mean, might MIKE why help me out and might judge help us on the story, hurry Oriel on Roberts. Michael did a draft. An amazing people work on this, and do you like that part of the process? Writing? Yes, I get kind of obsessed with that area. Where it's all I can think about. I write better alone, because if I met a group of people I get excited,
my spray such points, and I can't think right clearly, because I just I don't it's your distracted yeah it it never it's like I mean it's like a small version of crowds around a crowd we have done vainly infer. Screenings in that kind of thing right. That's all very helpful to the process yeah to see what's work, especially with when you're doing a comedy, yeah its eyes, people laugh or they don't yeah. It's not like a drama worst, I don't know. What's why and also unlike a drama, you can't put the perfect song and therein like Bell yourself out the other fuckin works, or does it yeah? Usually I remember when we were screaming bad grandpa at like first couple were good, but not where all the other ones that they did, and I have told spike, I'm not going to the
in fact this. I don't wanna go horse. I wait it's very I'm very since I guess I'm very sensitive and because you know it's all What do you really know how to point the finger yeah yeah? So those it's I'm not I go to them, but it's tough is I'm about over travelling and being away from my kids yeah, it's harder to get harder every time, and I just the eye I can't do it to me. The first two days are heaven and then the recipe is terrible. Five to be away firstly days in my sleep, ten hours is awesome. I can I can Did you watch tv all day long do anything. I want them by day three M, like Hooker, supporting youth Zaire. I don't feel right. I feel like like a bird that broke its wings or something I'm not in strider. It ah ha alike.
Well, you know it's hard to say that you in a business that is attracted a trillion different people, that of all towns in all these different ways to have really I'm stamped out a completely original thing like you did is, is incredibly impressive. Well, I appreciate you appreciate it's really really almost impossible. Just when you even think about ward talking about the first jackass movie coming out going like. Will that known even did that, like this, you know that it's all very unique and an amazing, and it's a really he iron accomplishment- I don't Yankee gets get to think about all I did this and because I don't want to be that guy you're, not another guy. You know no you're. Incredibly humble. I think everyone knows you would say about you, Janius yeah, just like that's why you leave it to me.
I'm telling you you don't have to walk around like that. I'm just saying when I think of my short time on planet earth. There are some people who I think of a like Jim carry where I go Nobody came around in the bad. That was really something has that's really cool, yeah David Letterman. While that was some, do really. set eyes on you in your thing as it was just holy unique in weird and interesting and hysterical I'll think anyone's ever gone, do Jack s movie and not fucking laughed, no matter where you're coming from it's a really it's it will stand out for me as the things I witness its in that soup of, like twenty things, that I saw that air memorable and I'll never forget, and now it's cool and I'm really lead you don't hate me now that I've got it like them anymore. It's just a figure car from free, wherever there's no oblivious, I was so ably. I like you to stop, did oblivious, I saw me, but no I've
define that most people are convinced that hated me. They did not pay merrymen, you ve had our partly never even thought about me. Wait. You ve had that with other people. Oh absolutely, so you really internalize any kind of rejection. Like you John Reserve, as we have received as reject absolutely I've. Come to realize no one's, even thinking about me there thinking about themselves and not unlike me, I'm thinking about myself right, I adore you tell me when you move becomes out again June. First yeah, and if it's scary, you get super fucked up its deliver and all the ways that you ve always right summer movie. Yes, and don't don't try new things, you c p j do but go and down in support movies. They keep getting made, especially this one, because who the hell's making these besides be J thanks for common. Thank you and for the record I

You don't have to go to your there, but they do, and if you'd like to hear my good friend and producer Monica Pavement point out the many errors as dangerous welcome to my favorite part of this package, which is the fact check with my good friend Monica Patman, and I we for we ve started when two thousand are very cranky mood when you arrived here today at the because the powers out there's no water. I took a dump and a continent flush out panicking that you're gonna I'm here and rob but way more you and you did however, that I had made waste- and that was honest have to pull them united at getting a five Leon? Water is cause me four dollars a flush of talks. I filled the back of the toilet tank with some Sparklin. Sir Arrowhead, like
nice, Joe. You know what it was I going to do. I had to get rid of that before it suffices a tap water. What is no, it was gone, no water. Are we not just in the toilet, no water here and the club housing, and also I had it. crazy laser procedure on my face, because I'm only in vain, and I and I want to look good for my new, shall you know why what you're honest he has gone for math and day Falcon blasted my face would like a flame through our you, gotta admit. Over the last four days it looks like I went through the windshield of a car and then caught on fire. It look. Your face, looks different I will say that poor children, and so for these reasons I am just sick of it. Now I'm getting better, but I'm sick of it and then just just my go over all health. It felt like I was at a five. So cranky, and then you got here and I start opening up about
and then you are you're nice, charming south, and then here I am now I'm hovering around nine, as one that makes me happy known, Rob took me up another point by one day. I hope we get to the point where you left your poop. Then it gets having those that's the pie in the sky dream for us here, I'm just not area, ok, yeah, it's been three years can be. I can be face set. Ok. So let's talk about Jonathan accept as a funny thing happened that you guys don't know about that. We know about money. Did happen. We can start with that. Okay, so before Johnny even got here a pj, I said to Monica play hope he brings up the story about me fixing his car because that's the kind of thing I want you guys to know about me than a mechanical and capable, competent and then there he brought it up right out of the gate. He d so happy. I would really shaking my head because
I mean for you. I wanted him to say it, because I wanted you to feel bolster our guy, but I also dinner I know that you didn't I now it's complicated. I don't know, can we didn't know why I think will actually do because the thing it is making? You want everyone to know that power? Ah, I think that's a little warped like I'll show you at least are on the same page about this is like me thinking people like, because I'm a good driver exactly I dont want to reinforce those things. I think that's bad for you. I think it's unhealthy, for you I am also aware of the fact that Desgas, I admit these flaws isn't make them less Thank you now, I'm doin goes well, I didn't get. Does I do think it makes it less. I think acknowledging it is helpful algorithm
anyways. I tell myself in the actual conversation with PJ's, but then I didn't want to derail it with yeah. I was also waiting for that was the part two. There was waiting for you to be like. Oh, I wanted you to bring that up and I was his time and then you didn't do that. So you are I was not happy while you would have wanted me to do that. Never seemed. You thought out Jesus more hear more about you thank speech for driving over here to hear more about that its very vulnerable. To say what you're saying I now be wanted people to know that this is a triple I am, I proved in the toilet when flush I had a laser treatment, GSM, vain and then I want to people know I can fix a car. I can forty three years if I hope people learn from that. Ok, so
Pj's last name is clap and we were talking about how that might be a not so great, last name at that age and and casual, don't know, that's because the clap is gonorrhea yeah. I'm not. Everyone knows that the old time me it is. It is unanimously, and I think people might You brought grew up watching a lot of Vietnam movies and it was really common and Vietnam, because people are we're going to these prostitution. I don't wanna with her, I always nice way to say it, but they were gone on are in Bangkok. They go to pat pong. They do the low hanky panky until autumn got the clap or gonorrhea gonorrhea you know, I assume younger people employed people listening to show they grew up with,
movies, about Iraq and Afghanistan. They permeate our authority. Aha for hurt locker airplane movie than nine eleven. maybe now nine eleven AIR Flight Y yeah dumping fifty four year. Maybe it is, but you know so people we're up those that the soldiers were magazine in Iraq or Afghanistan. I went Afghanistan twice and I can tell you there is virtually no hanky panky going on or honour or brothel so. I assume that std right much lower for that set of wars you're the guys would go on are in those words. is they would go to Qatar, which I flew into the first. I went Afghanistan very cool city I had an idea of what that place would look like when we landed in look like Goddamn Miami. How these sky
papers on the water and they their all brightly lit and stuff, and I was like we are pleased to go on our more hope. You climb. Ok, there's a discussion of who gets paid the most in baseball. You said pictures and, according to a business insider article in two thousand fourteen, so I need it outdated. No positions make more money in major League baseball, then start in pictures and first baseman cards or had he gone the distance? He would probably be the exact same riches he is now happening. Three have movies. I guess I'm so! Oh you, you referred to a surgery that pitchers get like. It was a common uncertainty, but I didn't know what you're talking about what you're talking about Tommy John Surgery yeah, which is actually called the owner collateral agreement rican structuring, Tommy John Surgery, Tommy, jostled, Panny, barium, Tommy Johnson?
You know me Andy's asked or that in there, Pay extra yeah named after Tommy John, a pitcher nineteen? Seventy four was the procedure when it was invented on Tommy. Yeah he's a supercomputer about that here. The procedure was first performed a nineteen. Seventy four it bears his name. I have to imagine that it was on him a nineteen. Seventy four well, it's named after the first baseball player to undergo surgery, Tommy DAWN, but I don't know he was the first person to its. You know, while on the topic, these baseball players, the Bay State claim on diseases,
like louvieres that some at some carbon or logical disorders, something the early it existed before our friend Lou got it will guarantee, is, alas, yeah, alas yeah ok, so he just got to pay his guy like a fancy name with his. He had what I want to strongly discover a star they get to yeah, it's unfair really because they want to dissociate the p r for the diseases wants to but you know, and I'm sure, MAGIC Johnson super happy for they'd eating, rename AIDS Magic Johnson. I know well let me be clear here Red AIDS, HIV Hiv. They never. They never named HIV Magic Johnson. Now which, by the way, sounds like a great I know some of you get
Yeah you're right is only for the ok for the person, it's it's it's undesirable, but for the disease. I hate to say this, but I'm gonna they were I celebrity to get it so that they can associate the disease with a famous person. Then people will care more more compassion, yeah right. I'm sticking to that theory. You mentioned squad, he potty, because you were taken by your hoop Rachel. All your oecd, poop ritual, and you were saying that you good sat the toys lot it's in a way that was reminiscent of the squatty potty, so at our own people no, not everyone knows about us quite a penny, but they should you love the squatty per. I love it so much there not a sponsor yet. I hope they will come on, because why about your release, gorgeous one for you, indeed, as a house farming gift, a t squatty party
You almost feel like you're yachting when you're using yeah, but it is a fully back. Yeah right click, nice, clean fully back the idea and in its as the monkeys, poop right anyway, Johnny said vice started in Canada and busy right now, Israeli really embarrass when he pointed that out because indices cut it out. Like oh yeah, Montreal You may not happen now. Why is it like obvious? that was, as I was in New York. Anything away went their necks, as I say, one lesson: Leslie Orphan right cause. She wrote a column and she had the great book she. She wrote dear diary that was compiled from vice articles. She wrote by the way you guys by that book. It's so good and we love Leslie Orphan, anyways. I just felt like I was trying to be, as I was trying to show him. Meadows, cool and punk rock in the night, miss
key allies, humbly Madge, I anyone that's claiming to be calling on crops should know got it. I didn't know right now, I'm cool, but you weren't you're not going for like upon crock thing like I am not anymore now working! Ok, you guys mention tales from the tour bass and flung it a little more information. I think people want to watch it as it was unstinting MAX Mike Judge created it and
at some animated? It's a nice little mix. You do get actual archival footage of events and then a lot of its animated about different musicians and sat trade young, you loved that they are so good. Ok, so I watched the Brad Pitt Clip of Jackass and I was trying to figure out what they were riding down the street on our her, because you had shopping cart. There was a clip in that of shopping cart, but but Brad must not have been in those ok, but there they were little like They looked like what are those cars called that, like kids, so managed Urban S? Ok, yes! Ok, though they were kind of and so Buxter because they were, and so Baxter weaker saw. That's great yeah! That's exactly what I was also Brad. Pitt is from the very big was born in Oakland Homer through them.
Because both right now you know I didn't have either those are they do at either somehow but now committed to memory. I will the eleven so much up. Ok, you said documentaries don't make a hundred million dollars. Maybe One has an one, has irresolutely worth Michael Moors: right: Fahrenheit Man, eleven hi, my eleven that when made a hundred nineteen million nine hundred and ninety four thousand dollars the next biggest is March of penguins. Oh, I wouldn't guess that I would not have been another Michael, more document, marcher penguins, which made seventy seven such a cue movie, we're gonna. Give you remember that I didn't see it also q, as their life is so brutal. What they do they have a little baby penguin because that they have to take turns sitting on egg and then their partner as to walk all the way back to the
order which is miles and miles Micronesia stupid they walk failure. They don't worry me. Let the other locomotion is ridiculous. You will not a sliding, in fact, because they walk so shitty. They end up letting on their bellies, which is key asset, is really good. Didn't do you wanna, want to guess what the third highest grossing documentary about I miss. Ah, you know those two across off the list so my hunches, there's there's another Michael more document. There is really big. I feel like and then I also want to say inconvenient truth properly in the MAX fuck. What is it just a beaver? the same ever ah, which our friend made or friend directed and you loved,
it in him as a people remember if they are listening? Kristen episode: do we Ike murdered some pigeons on the way to say that we still left in a good mood? That's how good who has the power of that Bieber flick? Okay, so speaking of how much the jackass movies make jackass the movie made. Seventy nine point: four million jack s number two made eighty four point: six million jackass three d, a hundred and seventy one point: seven million girl and then fad, grandpa
associated. Not in that same that, you know, says even made a hundred. Fifty one point: eight o, my god, I'm glad you said that has ever since he was talking about grandpa when it when he left those I did, then we would do well. I personally and see em, so you go centric avoidance eat. I think known Zalm really glad to hear that that may money, but it's important, remember gang some fucking obsessed with money. Those things cost five cents to make so they're just pure profit for everyone, I'm so happy for everyone's. As all scenario like I like when people in the lottery air six people are known to have died at action park, lifting of cheese or sixty, but is actually because when I was started delving in there is a lot of stuff on that. But more like a whole Buzzfeed article, there is a lot it's more common than I than I thought, and I know people are gonna, be upset. There were laughing about it, but I just want everyone to be rude. To recognise will relate.
In about we are certainly not laughing at the fact that people died or entered now we're leaving it. How responsible is every bit as the people that they would keep up its open. What I mean is you have to imagine of six eggs in our area here had one death, big big issue They would continue on two des, while they're getting shut down for a while they're gonna retool sums up. I got imagined three dozen, this current era that adds lights out, yeah, you're gettin, you can't you six of evil and stay in business and sad picture waterside that one up I doubt gritted alone water slide. Oh boy, ok, I tried to find out how old the catholic cowboy really is. Problem is John Oliver's catheter cowboy has really taken over this yeah yeah. He has end he stole the thunder of the original Catherine
oh boy, I couldn't find barely any information on hand, but the driver capital catheter cowboys seventy two. I ve, I'm just by my observation. I'd say the original Catherine Cowboys even older than that gentleman. Maybe yeah we want, never know we wanted, but it still doesn't make sense. It has only been cowboy for twenty years One starts cowboy and fifty firing. That's all
As regards our boy, though, a commercial for finding your passions late in life, I guess yeah it's kind of life affirming, although the passion may lead you to calf. That was very mixed messages. Persons may have some downsides, but I know that a lot of surgeries yeah see tee is brought up and people can just reference. The jaw Mikhail fact check if they want to learn about see tee, but call talk about that. I have a theory. This is in fact this is a theory of mine. no science, so when he was with all met ass when he was a little used to go to the hospital a lot, the and ass. My bow right, then these to shoot him up with adrenaline. So that is very interesting to me during some formative years. He spent a lot of time in a hospital in a lot of getting jolted with adrenaline and that that adrenaline was a fair affair,
yeah. I was relieved yes, so we are now considering his choices later in life. I wonder if that subconsciously, sort of drove hindon, maybe not do it, but but why he keeps coming back to that cause. It does give obviously an incredible boost of adrenalin to perform these stunts career even may be incorrectly is still does you I wish I were to do a better job at Gideon PJ's. To help us understand about a childhood, because I think there is probably a lot of stuff in their the OECD, mixed with the gone with asthma. Think there's the other. I think, there's enough, there was ever a part two of this with him more curious about I don't think you accidentally end up doing the thing he does yeah agreed now. Do you think my theory holds water like it yeah one other thing I just want to bring up from last week last week's episode Mark Marin posted a picture
and the early worry about that? I got a lot of below. On because my shoes, brown, the cow my shoes are currently on the couch. being right. Our media and people did not like that, my shoes or on the couch, but I guess I do it all the time. So That's it? That's not apologise because the owners of the- here. Let me just say I own this fuckin couch. You have had this couch for twelve years and I don't give a shit. If you put your feet, yeah and Monica would not come into your home. If you invite her, because you like her on armchair expert, unite over some supper, what you should do, she's a great guess, chicken put her feet on your couch and worry that this is just the thing This is a sign of our closeness, yeah, I'm so come turbo. Yeah by the way. Listen so yap again. Tell you, though, though the line of thought they goes
shoes are dirty there on the ground there, picking up germs, you're, putting them on the couch, but then I'll go ok and then p. sit on it with their genes belonging polar genes often find lick the ass of their genes. So what are you. Afraid of unknown sleeps on this couch zoning attic, guys known. The wicked cushions of the couch, so everything's fine, things don't run like us with the health department.

We can get shutter feet away from a toilet, yeah yeah Christian posted a picture on her instagram the very next day of her on a podcast fee. also on another person's cow. Aha and I'm just gonna call the world out I didn't see one comment about her shoes on that cow will she's more beloved. Then you nationally

Evader and people would get in and a hundred per cent. They were convinced that I had far they look at her and then they look at me and they go out that guy far right and she would this kind, often- and I said to her- listen. If you do this again, I am going to look at the people say my wife farther. That was not me an idea that one time in a New York elevator. She farther people got in when we got out. I got just one for the record. That was her that followed it, and then they looked at me. And let me tell you how it backfired, not only
did. They still think I had far. Did they go? Get this guy forded any just blamed his wife he's a fucking monster, yeah enough that you know Winnie, that's just the price we pay to be surrounded by such an jewel of goodness in light, and that's just how it's gonna be in.
