Hey folks Nickelodeon as a new podcast called avatar braving the elements each week join, hosts, Jane

hey boss go the voice of zoo go in general, I wrote as they re watch every episode of avatar, the last air Bender Special guess, ranging from super fast to the creators of avatar, joined the co host for deep dive into all aspects of the avatar verse, including key themes, notable battles and so much more. You can listen to avatar braving the elements on Iheart radio Apple POD casts Spotify or wherever you get. Your pod casts a right
so you can do that great,
let's do the show
all right. Let's do this. How are you what the fuckers, what the fuck buddies, what the FUCK Nix, what the fuck it delegates? What
facto peons that oh no,
how goes is alot of em over the years? Many many many many many names
please leads, send me wisps of names. Many many lists very helpful, but
I can only get two three or four work folks, I'm
I'm just getting by like the rest here? Are you getting buys everything all right? It's unclear.
You're talking about it today, brand
and Mcdonald's here in town for something maybe I'll tell you about. I got there a contest winner, observing me I'm being observed, and are we
talking about a white. Where are we at with the rules?
some people you go,
The places you do, I don't even know if the place, I think in California, it's up to the place where you, where the mask or night, and then
if it says that you do where mass you go in and there's people not wearing mass, when no one seems to give a fuck.
People wearing masks and then there's still people wearing masks outside which they haven't had to do for weeks.
I'm starting to realise that, like some people are having a widow detachment problem, there have been a little problem. Let go the mask they ve got used to it. They like
people, are we seeing half their face? They, like just me,
recognised by their terrified sad eyes. Everywhere they go so
I don't know, I think we're gonna have to let this stuff go. I mean it. You will just have to tolerate people who want to wear them. I understand that my friend
If side New York, he actually said we said- I think I'm ever gonna- take it off, but he took it off, but me
We should just to incorporate them into our lives, because if you, if you like me, you ve got a gun
I'm back stock by
in the panic. I bought a Prager. Maybe a hundred and ninety five are different sort. So I
I'm I'm set I'm set for the next pandemic. I'm set for fire season, I'm ready to go. I've got the kind with the little ventilator on the top on the front that you're not supposed to wear a yo in places because it only protects you and not other people. But it's going to be good when I need to hike in the entire states on fire, so I'm prepared for that and prepared for fire must prepare for germs
maybe we should just approach it like gum, the asian people that we see who wear them all the time who are ahead of the curve on this
there's more of them than anybody instead of blaming them for the pandemic. Why don't we give
credit for the solution in day to day life. We could all be healthier if we just where the massive occasionally, I think now we're all comfortable with it. This has been an avatar
this meant for masks. Just generally speaking, Eric Griffin is on the show today

I don't know why I
I never acknowledged Eric. I think
he's a big boy,
he's got big moustaches is really the most jewish Workin black guy. I know, but for some reason in my mind, just as an old timer. At this point I
I think I know everybody

yogurt frozen over frozen yogurt aspects and its delicious stuff. My fridges
It's delicious, you know announce it in here. Like I hate, even knowing its day area, I have no self control.
this through a day you control problem when it comes to, like you know this everything everything
right the comic thing to buy thing. It's like it's a certain type of human.
yeah yeah. I give her. What have you think, like you know, there's more cock alcoholics like now plenty of car Palmer, Al Sabah moderation, and we know that many of our issue with the reality is that maybe more compulsive people are attracted to Carmody, balancing proportionately there's more compulsive idiots,
But there is a compulsory element to saying the same thing over and over again
well the same energy at the same at the same love hate Eric. If you need to write some shit
We all can't sit on a stool have whatever it all around the world to come to my head, but you got it add two no sit here at Aguilar, United Yoda AIDS, but that's the beauty of actually being a comic, is being able to bitch about
things at the same level. Every single night like this
something magical about that, sometimes
things were out there. You know
you're out any by for me. I wish I find one more thing differ
in our work on a new ships out some pops in Milton
then you just like. I remember that, but then it becomes a compulsory
you think you can do that again. I want to say that again, I guess so I never thought it. I never thought about that. Work is a most people. Talk about like a laugh is addictive. It's like has
information on time. For me, the more addictive part,
like when something new happens bomb
or if something like you
have this idea and its connecting yes and I'm the last
there is just a result of now. You know what is happening with the right. You know it's happening, but the thrill is like it's a new thing.
Just to the laugh. Why do you like that? That is the difference between them
going up there and doing the same thing over and over again, and you know it works and that's enough
is not the same as like going up there and get net new land me try, then I got a new laugh last night I Orban will not break it up to like. Sometimes I gotta go like this is what I close with you and I'll go ominous start with me I'll see. If I can find save our follow this type thing. I think it's ok to do that, and you know you can do that at the commonest really got fifty mirror. I right right so funny, sometimes one with the comedy sternum, like these people have fifteen minutes in their choosing to talk about this.
How do you get like you know my dick seven minutes in Arabic?
this is a comedy sheriff over here know. How do you know? I don't remember I'm talking about my dick plenty, but it's
It is interesting how people it has aroused a thirteen minutes. It no no purpose, but are you
thirty minutes, he never would you like that, like ok, I've got the twelve to fifteen minute thing
Why you to say whatever I want in their parties like that's when I chose.
You know what you know what I've got like. That is why I was working on we're. We're taping, I'm dying appear, and I will I got laid eyes. I got to do a Showtime special and it, but
then let me go on the road,
yeah they wouldn't. Let me like, I would even go work it out our work it out like how to town. So I had to do everything in town and I was doing he says it if it was like. I really Willow realized. Oh, you can read
you take advantage of these fifty minutes after the commie store? You have you break it I'll break it up and you're working on a thing so was like. I felt like a man, I'm really working on this, and so then I felt like that when you see people and you go, why are you doing that yeah
Why? Why I've always high and of all of us all the time I can remember when you would do indifferent club shows in a local opener.
What I say to them, I you got terminus man. Why used,
doing he high why you work or some shit yet are not here to see you anyway. So don't even matter gets weird thing and it's hard though you get stuck at the store because it's like you do want to do well. So if you can
they're like I'm, not gonna, do that fifteen minutes and into this whole other chunk, and then you survive. I'm scared we'll get well. You know
funny were now we're back to it being a work outlined its the best. I know it has in the last five years. It was just like all the chef awkward show. I gotta do my aim material because I gotta go up after years were all get married. Here's what you know to me as the true million us. I get all the people that line it was like a show. People were therefore light on a Tuesday in ice. Now that it's there's always be. Why never seen before their sort of in the shadow is almost like me, where I can come out now come on, then this is a nice little like when we work on my material room again, I love it. I loved it such it. So it's like it. So
it now. You tell me like now what the problem with me. We are a valuable.
Nobody is talking about earlier. It was funny visit,
actually hilarious because bag. My first time I had us those first show time special. I don't know. Maybe my representation or somebody hit you up and asked me to be on the packaging and you said no
you like, I'm, not a guy, whatever those private, Snubbiness defined nerves and cut too
tell me what you have to wait for things in a business. You can always you know, how do you like you just walk up to me? I want you gonna park. Ask him your number. They just go out. I waited for that year. It is you're gonna make. I do
I know I don't know why I just didn't. I didn't know you and it put it so it doesn't matter because there's plenty but don't know so I was trying to figure out like well. Why did I do that Erika Mann because
some part of my dumb brain. What sort of like?
I've been doing this for ever right, so there is still some part, my brain, that by no other guys, in my mind, is right now, another guy I've never seen him before. I didn't. I didn't see you around them. You know what it is that you know what it is like this like we hang with our peers. We hang with certain groups of people. Also I go in and out I'm old unwitting around. It is what it is.
You know I had announcing offence. I just I always is likely. You say that, like the other night, they like, I was literally not acknowledge. Oh you did do that. I was scared. You walked out at all. Are here,
standing near with violent Neil Brennan by we Cummings like these types of NEA, and you walk
and you will I hear how you do it shook their process in hiding.
literally method for me, and I was like ok, nothing.
I would say that you walked away and I went there buddy, nothing, I'm not even here there with put there's a certain like.
there's a certain. I could be that guy, but I did so you're the guy, though nobody I dont notice it. It's just me being selfish. It
its rude and I'm not acknowledging. I try to be aware of that stuff. It's like again, I'm sort. I gather that I've never seen really work. You, ok or or other thing we do to. You know, what's up another thing that I realize we don't really watch each other I do now but Nokia.
in general. I don't. I don't make appointed a lot of time. Sometimes you might if you're goin up next, you might be on their our earlier out here, but a lot of times
We know each other there's a lot of you
but that you hang out with the commissioner and talk to that. You are not sure if their funny or not jack.
You know you're, not you're. No, I know- and sometimes I watch him and I'm not sure. I guess
Sometimes I, like, I don't know, what's happening
I mean they seem to be doing the job, but I dont know how its we're all about your copy. I guess I'm honest. I can say that right out, there are many people at economy store there. I watched her set and I go for me. Why can you not me? That's ok. I believe you ve gotten better. I think you're doing your best work now. Well, I think you ve done more. Angry is right.
You think I'm more in touch with who I am and autonomy in. Sometimes I'm angry about that. But but that's my brain, I was it you get around. I bitch about things, and I just I know I bring things they able or like all other like that about me. I knew this from before I used to coach basketball and I would be like yelling at two kids, because, unlike what they're doing I be like where you
Oh, but away I was doing it. The crowd is laughing again put. Not to show real, it was
one of the first time I realize actually should be a comic so wayward you girl, I weapon away where
like MID Wilshire area really, do I don't know you from a like? No, I mean I grew up in New Mexico,

You know so it's like is that kind of thing so, as I say, dimensions are tough one because of how it affects loved ones.
Yeah I've been doing a bit about
That's not land, and now I do a whole thing. Abide us high deal with things. I talk about my mom's dementia with during. Why? Just
I just talk about like how like that I didn't know.
First, that you're not supposed to argue or try to reason with them.
Somehow I was haven't knockout fights with my mark of my mom. Things are grandmothers alive.
Yeah I'm have competition while you're seventy eight, your grandma.
a hundred and thirty five years old,
issues like what she's doing good. So I just talk about it and I find it when I talk about it, I really a joy when people come up to me afterwards they go like hey man. I deal with that. You have never laughed about it
you I've nice get! I'm like I just started talking.
Body in that? I said that I do like I'm I'm seeing this is my father's beginning the?
timers journey, I don't give it a negative spent because five to be honest with you like it
Countdown is just the beginning right now.
I can still knows me. You'll knows: what's up he's
our time following through, but yeah he's too became
look I'll do in common ass all never shut up. He had never to him. Now explain now. I know he's all soft in nice in with them like he'd, make sure you take
I do appreciate the sweet spot dementia right at the beginning of the end.
it's not really land inaccurate, and then I say I like it. I know in a couple months by won't know who he is and then I'll be truly free on a dark eyed
hey. I see why that's the land, and now I mean it's, you know it.
its differently for their for sure. It's not all. We are your kind of, like you know, approaching it with them. Empathy and it's kind of funny and frustrate
but your mom got the good tag, yeah
It is really frustrating, though it is a frustrating thing, because I can, I just think she's still now you yes
you Know- and it is not like that yet, but they could get caught a start.
measured, turns and all farmers in his account countdown to them. Their branches deteriorating right eye.
That would be a good thing that was hard. Was we return to the doktor for the first time you wish it? Could they moved to Spain for four years? Really? Yet
no they what she wanted to go to Spain. I just wanted to do it. They retire
You don't like Spain of outweighs. Spain is actually gray cost of living, Zaka Jack Beer and if you could get places we wanted
Travel you're in Spain gets a German. I rather like enough for their fear, so
She was too everytime I would visit. I could tell shoes repeating yourself a lot she was I get in your last time. I saw what I really felt she was more herself. She was like talking about talking about things that outside oh. She doesn't know us
all right. He said to her said to me too: I'm task as I'm feeling I'm confused idea. So I knew she knew some was up and then what
happen. What she went for a walk and fell down and fast tracked. It might,
it's terrifying. Without what happened? What Mamma she fell down? She was,
someplace in which she has exposed to be likely to people a very nice.
they helped her here and then did it
I must add that call me. We gotta come home. Yeah yeah.
then, when we came out just now, she's here in the states in the area we go to the doktor, and I said it she sitting and I wonder how we talk about this. Yet, as list
We gotta just talk about it, so I say: ok, well my mom things, your grandmother's alive,
and there are models I, what are you talking about? So they did this cognitive tested. It was hard to watch
that's, when you really saw their son amateur shit, yeah right yeah, I was, I can draw clock and make the time eleven, forty five million, or so she did. She is funny she drew the clock as she wrote eleven forty five
and ass, I want a digital clock amount to give it a matter we like, and it was like so many f say as many like animals start with the letter, Africa,
The west will. What does a train and a bike having common that those type of aid
then you I saw it for the first time I was like oh man, because our personal now running around us just ass, unlike two extra
I am now brow absent in their doing the same thing, I'm like. Ok, I won't is a kind of hard are like you and me. We should make sure. I guess it was the right answer so and it was tough to see it was tough till I really and witness yeah yeah. I think I got it.
we have to figure had been more sympathetic and my approach. Why? What
spend time with a mere. You got me he's in Albuquerque and I'm gonna go back up my brother goin out there because you are starting at the time and for near they go away, but it is hard to note. The thing, though, is in Bombay like one hundred about it. It's hard it's hard to spend time with my mom, because my mom's not there.
but this is not yet it is a different person. So so your home,
not your memories and you're, like you know you, if that good, you know it's like. That is a feeling I'm trying to fight. So when I see her I'm just trying to just be like-
yeah, just like it's weird, my dad was always kind of spacey. You know is kind of like at all. You know, like you do
dreaming or whatever apprise head now? It's just like it seems to be a little longer with this very difficult moment. So specifically, she thinks she thinks so we have them at this, like retirement place ass good, but she thinks that at night
she goes home to her grandmother south. So I'll talk to her and should be like
Can we go on home about fifteen minutes here you know and on my arm,
and she does it if she doesn't realize
he thinks are grandmothers house. I remember the time I just mistakes do. This is one of the things I talk about. I gotta know to do she thinks are grandmothers hasn't? Did you not grandma your gram
I remember when I was nine. Yet I went to her funeral every right
woman too, which is why I don't know. Instead, my mama's fixated on this still every
though she told me, was a. How might her grandmother was a tyrant. Unesco is really strange really,
Yet where was she might believe, remarks
yeah, that's what I'm trying to say to you. So I tell my mom you nice she's.
Groundwater is down the street, so I
rob. Google maps therein Oxnard then I put grandma's address Emily and show it to my mom line is going down Mexico now through Central America activity looks at it and she just laugh at me, shoot like I'm crazy.
She's laugh at me, like I'm crazy, growls houses down the street, and what are you show me if you don't go to Mexico to gonna grandma's house, so so kind of thing that, like when you're a logical personal, you think you are now think. That's a man thing to you that we really want everything's gonna, be logical and makes sense and analytical you're gonna. Be it's hard to deal with like this things like completely fantasy world? Is I've been asleep when it's all so terrifying to realise that, like the only thing that makes us anything, is our fuckin brain like Rona
once that goes even a little bit your factory, that does the thought process. I went through an that's why I'm workin on my health? Not now it's like you,
what you're one head injury away from like you know not knowing would not know who you are or were you are it's crazy. My mom hits misuse like this. She thinks now she thinks she walks to have blocked. Graham I'm tired of walking Eric. I need you to get me about.
like all bitch, you must get a pike like you know to me. I guess it's so inferior aiding. What's it like to deal with it, you know she wanted a bike. She'll be eighty years old on a bike. You're, not you know, I've been around Oxnard. You can't work ethic even to me if you can but she's gonna walk anymore, there's no blesses over here. That's all these things is a whole world that that she's created militia still active in her head. Yet that's what I said to you. Maybe this great in her mind whether still alive area as a whole life with her. So my ok cause you have stated we ought. We ramble was asking about you re, so she says to me:
What was asking about you, how the little, how have you know little stinker area,
Why? What do we know about the afterlife? Maybe she's really tell and there's no like you can't reason
That's it was the hardest. Things are really except me because I said to my mom one day out in the beginning I was like I saw o grandma outside will how'd your grandma yeah. You know she s like
she's an early eighties near early eighties. How do you mean? What are you guys?
trying to lay outside what. How does your mom? How does your mom do things?
because my year, thirty years older than me,
twenty minutes of your thirty years older than me. How old
How much older is your grandma from now the story? Probably yet now it's, I guess she's a guy now that fishing is mad and our real.
as I was making her uncomfortable right, so I wish I had to stop doing
They still have their pride right, o stubborn as hell imagined net. You add stubbornness and other things
that was tough was like my mom was our social media. So I got a thing I talk about as I do now dimension on social media
not good. Now by mobs we live in o beefs and analyzing look
she's reliving them on Facebook, like real people. She's talk not now that you are talking about a woman it when she retired thirty years, and yet she hated and she's talking shit about her on Facebook and be in racist unanimity.
So I have to tell my: might you can write your internet? You can't writers,
I should like to do whatever I want, so I wanted to
page, and I made our preferences private official
Now she's right everything, not just agar, aren't you rise up and I go
I deal with things where I take whatever pain and anguish and all the things that are going on in my life and I take it. I just go right to the stage with it
yeah I mean we got you. I mean that's what we do you now in it and I think it does generally help people. I don't you does to me. I really think it does so do you have the affair,
I am Belize. Now
I have no Amy. I have no idea what pleases
Belize was like believes, is lighter in their yes many times, but believes is like Jamaica. They are actually have similar accidents with doth. Both of them are slave ports. Ok, so you have you have
lot of, like you know Latin,
in black Africa and Straight Latinos. Honduras is right there and all this exercise a very hodgepodge of people here and then please get their independence and, like the seventies programme from England, was english food.
the same color, caribbean food, caribbean food, be rice, beans, yea OX tales land
in this area and a food so very similar to Jimmy Sigh of family from Jamaica routes
then it s like their spanish roots. Theirs,
So I have all these different types of things they, like you, know
I don't really know exactly my father's origin mommy.
To say, like our liking oak eastern european economy,
but I will not use your doom to who knows eastern European. Do I dont want to get to twenty three make others like me. I just don't want. Are you gonna? Do that?
at least I don't want to know we're. Never gonna give you a name. I don't, but it's like who would want to know. I like you I did I did mine, I'm like is it just came back Jew
would I hate letter, another one that is at the top and another jus? So now you're gonna do
one can I made clear in my name, I frankly I wouldn't I'm really not curious come you are, so I
I am not going to give you a name, but you need to tell you the breakdown, even if we just your mom, you want to know right. Maybe I mean what's what,
maybe I'll, do it I'll make a whole thing. I, for my part, Cast Rewrite Nick Griffin

She said I I go. I sleep in despair. I thought I was dice. Could she so up with? No that's another. That's a whole other monster, a story right. I guess I was sitting there like. I guess this game is patient. You're too, so I was like TAT was weird, but then I got the bug after that. But then I didn't know what to do. Did you learn anything from sandy? I learned how to be on stage. We dared time for what was a curriculum like what you guys do. You know it was like. I always
Can anyone that if you want to start doing comedy, take one class yeah? Just
to be comfortable being onstage?
oh well, people that it will make. You feel safe right right,
It creates a way to get on stage without being totally.
like. You could also take ten weeks to like. Let me work
these dub jokes, yet Yang you can, when you knew you, no other people, yes exacting you're our going over you have, then we have like a a showcase like a believer in the o r. In the order. First time I ever did comedy asked
it was in the o, r and notwithstanding deal with their mafia.
I remember I was like oh, I love this, but added
what to do after that right. So then I met with the acting class,
This is just a comedy acting class. It usually- and I remember this is the first time my mom MIA.
My mom saw me, and it was the first time that she believed in me area, because
you, don't you tell this woman wanted me to be a lawyer doctor, a businessman NEA, and I say why aren't you gonna be an entertainer hands like now, but there would she saw be. She was all he could do it
I have a good feeling, yeah yeah. It was a good feeling, and then you know that I
then I was working, have jobs
when you're and allay our know how to get on stage. I didn't know what to do. I take a class a safe, but then, after that, if all up to you
and you got your nine jokes right son-
for open, MIKE's and naturally start doing yeah. I remember going to. I was glad when I was doing open MIKE's. It was like, like Jamie
Kennedy was doing open MIKE said Anne
What how hot pocket guy was? Do it opened my clothes? Twenty to you not to me we gathered
in the gaff again was. Do an open minded yeah man. This was
a way back in the day, and so what happened was I stopped because I didn't know. I have some somebody bad experiences, onstage that I was I I can't do this so twenty eight years ago
gotta be yourself yet again, and then it took me like it was. It was when I was thirty, but that was just when there were MIKE's at clubs right you couldn't dollar we're like coffee houses are really were yet. It was weird little coffeehouses all over the place doesn't play on Venice comparisons, and I was
weekly show it and they
what happened was I quit for like eight years so you didn't like
That's funny, decide that have immature. I did. I did stand of one summer after I done it in college with another dude I did.
one summer for real doing over my since it
It was eighty four and then I'd at indifferent of three years to I graduated college and I immediately came out here and start doing it. So I wish, I would add, any would have that journey. I just stopped. I stopped
it was when I was thirty years old. What turns you? What what made you guys
Why do you want to wake up? Fifty or Bulgaria follow my dream. Nobody knew what
stopped you when you're doing over MIKE's discern all oh man. I have so many, but I remember all never forget this. You know you know. J of the Brown is now. Why is this
He's just like us. Go black comic, and here I am at this club- is called mixed in that at a time.
health is not a comedy union. Ok, ok on pico by Roscoe's chicken, a wharf now remember that place
call mix knots way back in the day. Is the union still open? I dont know right
so I am the black club, swamps it near and back with a bunch of comic. He goes up, he's hosting he's, kill him and he don't know was going next. He thinks about comics who DEC
up here s arm sit near in front and is literally every by took a step back. So I got shit. Ok, give me I go up. I start doing my jokes, two minutes it has given me the light, so I get off stage and he goes on a does twenty minutes about how bad I was just like jail in me, and I was like
This sucks like outside who wants to deal with this? I felt terrible.
About myself- and I was like this is for me and I just thought I would
I too this day regret that weapons that guy still around
you don't know they said yes, because I was on a radio show he was hosting, and I talk to him about it. You know you did this to me was laughin about. It is what it is, and so then it was said that you're on radio I do tv- and I felt like it worked out for me
you know what it's like, where those things that I always they peoples they dont level regret my. I don't believe in that. I believe, like it's ok, to have regret, because you were member not to do that ever again, right right,
it's ok to be like this memory. I had that. I'm gonna make sure, and I want to pass that on other people. Right now to say: hey you. Have you stop?
like I almost regret to like Maggie.
To our relationship earlier in my life right cause us like
You have opportunities, yeah, yes or no!
I realise all well, maybe it
a better road to be like thirty having kids and and you're here I
So it's light is like that kind of thing. Where you go, you man, that's terrible window. If you really want to do it, and fifty is not terribly, is not terrible, but you just think about like when your daughter's on his thirty year, eight right, you're lucky if you're lucky enough, so
but if that there's nothing wrong with that, I'm assuming wrong with With- and I know what I want to say- that I am one of those things you you should think about it. I tell young men Alla time now think about you talk about telling people as if you're running some after school programme. The area
but I ain't vessel comedy is sometimes I guess so I mean I used to do our bit about being of daggers. I was with the younger women who wanted a kid, and it's like I just that memory.
people member when I was a kid. The kids, Harold, Dad's yeah like after school. Your weight off in this guy dries up those guys who, sadly my dad. I know it is a measure of how old is he. I ve. No doubt my electric war I represent in the king Gos I gotta get to help him. I know it's right now. I don't wanna be that guy up. Why are now I gotta make sure they love you, no matter what apparently yeah, but still
You don't want them to have. I don't know what you why who knows
You know, you're always rely on about they're gonna, be like it's all, specula yea. I don't remember the battlements based on our own experience too, because, like you say it yet, but that's not that's not that kid's experience. I mean that kid. You really say that I made up that kid. It's weird when you haven't
dad but you're my met Rebecca election is as they don't. They don't know that I mean it
compare, I think they figured out back at the park in and a young dad spoken, throwing you all year on year and you're still not launch share and which, like you, ve got a good yeah yeah yeah. It's like I want. I like. I want to have experiences, so we better get I'm trying, I'm engaged you. I gotta, my old she's got a nice ring, she's thirty two to put her down, but I put it down
This is a joke down on women are thirty out about a relic. Yet this is a joke,
that military other female listen
now, just they just turn. That now is the moment. I hate that he loves a small but are now he's a bastard financial mama's boy s nets.
he'll be with the name of my new I'll, be at my boy S audio. So when you go back,
how do you re enter? I mean what do you do for eight years when you're on the willing? I will thus once it s when I started working. I was like that's when I started out work it out of school. I was like coaching,
ask about working a livelier,
back in my head. I was like I was like. I just thought you know I'll I'll. Never
jolly singular that guy's saying things here
Let me just that it was like when you're in L, a
it's hard to like understand. How do you get on stages? Nobody going! Here's how you do it there's no way!
pass, there's! No, I gotta go mean exactly and I didn't know anyone. I didn't you know, and so it was until I was thirty and I was like I'm gonna. Go to open my Keziah and then I have my buddy buddy Jeff and we started together and I remember telling him he don't want.
do it anymore, and I saw another body of ours Eric Edwards. He calls and he's like him out what
so the migrant want me to sign you guys up go yet. I want a final. Yes, that is outside of that agenda,
