movie called the spook who sat by the door, his movie came on in the sixties near about a black cat. They thought was an uncle tom, but he was most militant crazy cat start blowing up buildings and stuff mere because people, decide what a black man this is viper, Black man wears a suit and a black, but if he was at the Ziggy's black, I said well, a lot of cats were infiltrated. The black panthers were police officers award the seekers yeah, so you can't always go by what the cats were right or how a guy talks, because some guy has talked to most trash do the least right.

We owe the brain damage. Yet everyone knows who you are is funny. People know I am, but they dont is six years old next year. I remember you weren't orange jumpsuit, oh yeah, brother war, colors the war colors, nor did I used mother, I can't say I think December. If I'm walking down the street is that we, Think of ourselves in bed there can be no body but simba right yeah. So yes,

What it are woody this embed show how that will happen without simba show thirty episodes at a pit. Something ok, as I have I want to do a tv show gerasa this dismal movies but disney. mia deal, I had to pick a tv show a made up. I was going in a pitch and Joe roth Comey said you can fake a suck pitch. Can you ask me they bought the show, as it shows not real. Is that what he's they bought? The show now you stagnant tv show, I said, and I should have flubbed it,
it's so now, but the best thing that happened is I went, I had to go get produce, but I was on the road during the talks. Wait so they reach out to you. They say you got anything. Anyone had a deal. The deal was with disney to do movies, but I had to pit atp one teasing like a deal and new and picked up a rotten I'd better out, throw the fight. Is it thought if I regret this, It's gonna make movie yeah right and my patient. I think I'll buy this about a guy adopts two kids black man and he does the internet this internet. It's about ninety.

What's so now, because one role road, they start developing to show it to me. So don't I get there might is right.
up in us already have. Unlike a guy, he didn't want to do it, the guy I'm. How to work now might be the guy's liberal to hard to work with. I think every comics first show is the winner through hard work, because you fight, you thought you thought writers were funny and they would hang out with you. You don't relate writers, some of the most antisocial people in the world. But the good writers, they could be good colorized, but they have no life. so I didn't know that, but it will be cool and the writers were told not to talk to me and I was like what don't talk to him. Are we supposed to come off the plantation? I wasn't in the main house. He was called to the massa house great, where are the bruisers, but that betsy, but that was the thing then yeah they're, like we know his point of view. It's just fucking right to show the only way to look at north point of view, some of them and everything we do stand up. They don't even know your point of view, they're writing from their point of view, yeah, that's all I have sister kind like that yeah, yeah, yeah man. a civil war minor with sneaked the window, it might just room ass.

I says she's a lad and highly bury our young crazy here. I don't think so, so you feel in in that process of that show that you didn't really want to do that. You lost control of it and it got so crazy. It could have been so funny. Hey, I didn't know the inner writing in the hollywood reporter he knew what he wanted. We should let it left left him alone.
Just didn't want you to have, could just say so. Does he got a better idea is not to do not hard. What would you like this about ideas, data, your I deserve it.
