Nowthis episode Bock, we put up a poll on twitter to see what soundgarden song people would want to hear, and the results are as follows.And the reason why I did it was because I honestly have been listening tosuper unknown for the past like month, like nonstop. I don't know,I've just been on the very big super unknown kick. I'm not sure why. Man To me it is yeah, but hear the results. So comingin fourth place and last place with nine point three percent, was the titletrack Super Unknown, and yes, I did try to lobby for this one, but it fails. But in third place was it was it's a greatsoul. Yeah, absolutely. In third place was the day I try tolive with twenty point four percent, and coming in a close second place wasblack Hole Sun with thirty three point three percent, which I honestly thought thissong was going to win, but the winner, with thirty seven percent ofthe vote, was fell on black days, which is what we're talking about.And, as I mentioned, it is from sound garden, off thealbum super unknown, and it came out in one thousand nine hundred and ninetyfour. Is Written by Chris Cornell. In case you guys Don know whoChris Cornell is, I don't know what to tell you about. You shouldcheck into that. But Buck, what are some of your memories of thissong? It was the the title man fell on Black Days, right.I used to mess like they had other black and the other the other SongCool Sun. Let's stick it back. Let's take this back. My buddydown giving me bad mode of finger and I freaking love that album, right, and I bought this album like the first week it was out and Iwas digging deep into this album and then just love and everything, Black HoleSun came out. But Bah, blah, I couldn't. When I sang thissong, I didn't hear fell on black days, I heard it fellon dark days, and that's how I sang it and I fail dark daysand I never got it out of my...

...head that fell on black days wasthe lyrics. Is that weird? Is that weird? Not People, youknow, people hear things and then and they do it, you know,a certain way for a long time and then next you know it's like wait, what I just I got myself away from the Black Hole Sun. Iwas just like you're going to name another so a black in it. Likejust I just started singing. I think it goes better. You Sing itwith dark days and I think it sounds better and I'll sing it again iffill lone. Another thing. When I do my karaoke, brow you everybodyand everybody knows that's listening to that. I think this is my six orseventh podcast. Right I do my karaoke and I will never do Chris Cornellbecause Chris Cornell is in another stratosphere of singers and I refuse to do him. But I'll stop you. I will of them stop singing right now.But yeah, I always sang dark days, but this song I got into it, man, I just it's one of those like you're just chilling man, just listening. You know, you're going for a walk or you're justlike in your room and just like all right, I want to learn howto play guitar. That's what I started learning how to play guitar and youknow, it's just like this is what music's all about. And Yeah,I fell in love with these guys pretty early and they're one of my favoritesand the songs always been a been something that I have special in my heart. Man. Definitely. Yeah, yeah, I mean I always. I never, I never said dark days, but I remember the song very well, right. I mean I still listen to it. My sister actually gotthis album off of I forget if it was BMG or Columbia House, Iforgot. I forget. I forget which. Everybody got this. I think everybodyhas this fucking album, dude. I said, I swear it.Oh, yeah, I mean it's well, it's sold what nine million copies?So yeah, a lot of luck people have this album and I rememberour generation remember when we got because I was, you know, a bityounger than and my sister was the one who had the I think it wasColumbia House, but she had, you know, the account, or Iguess my parents probably were the ones who had the account. So we wouldget the know, the ten albums for like ten cents or whatever, whichis probably like eight thousand dollars, but we I remember. So she waslike, Oh, you want to get a couple albums. I was likeokay. So then I wound up getting super unknown and then I winds upgetting ten from Pearl Jam. So that's a that's a pretty good start.I thought it's good score, man, and and I think for me thememory are recall the most is like just listening to the song around New Year's. I don't know why, just coming hanging in my room listening to thesong as like it's a cool tune. So yeah, that's that's a greatway to bring in the New Year listening to this uplifting tune. But yeah, I mean I remember when it came out and, you know, havethe album and still still listen to it. But now fell on black days.It's been streamed over eighty six million times on spotify and sound garden hasalmost five million monthly listeners. I think that number should be higher, soeverybody listen to them. Now this song peaked up number four on the billboardmainstream rock tracks chart. Didn't get to the US hot one hundred, butand that's fine. That doesn't need to. Now how does this song compared tothe other songs on the album. I mean this album is massive.Right. Super unknown hit number one on the billboard two hundred had five singlesreleased off of it. Spoon man in January of ninety four, the dayI that's a great song, the day I tried to live, in Aprilof ninety four, black hole sun in May of ninety four, my wavein October of ninety four, and then fell on black days in January ofninety five. So this is the last single released off of that album.And this also interesting note. This album came out the same day as thedown word spiral from nine inch nails. That's a pretty damn good day foralbums to come out home. Wow. Right. And, like I saidbefore, this album sold nine million copies, over nine mollon copies well wide andin April of two thousand and Nineteen,...

...rolling stone rank this album ninth ontheir fifty greatest grunge albums list, which is Horse Shit because this shouldbe in the top three. It's I mean it's ten dirt and then superunknown. I don't know. I still I still kind of don't think tenis gruned. I still think pro jam's grunge but people still like to callthem grunge. So by that definition I would say ten. If you don'twant to call program grunge's fine, because I kind of don't do but thenI would say dirt is number one and then sit run down. Anyway,they came out with spoon man, right, yeah, first, Yep, Brothat song was awesome. Yeah, I come on a minute, man, you play the LEA. Did to try to do the spoon thing,didn't you know? I don't. I never did the well, I didthe spoons is like randomly around a house, probably to annoy my parents, andI probably succeeded at that, but not a lot. Not like tothis song, swoon man, come together with Y'all plans save me. Good. I did so this. I did try. That was like one ofthe first songs I tried learning on in Drop D on Guitar is. It'sjust fun to play that. Nice, Nice. Yeah. But so thealbum starts out with let me drown. Good starting track. that. Weget to my wave, awesome tune. Then fell on black days will well, we'll talk about that a bit more, obviously. Then Maleman, which isquite an interesting song. It's good, but it's it's just interesting. Willleave it at that. Then we get super unknown, which is anawesome song. I feel like I've been like saws, I was seeing beforeI was listening to this album. For the last like a couple weeks.I feel like I've been focusing on that song and the one after it,which is head down. I've been listening to those like on repeat for thelast like three weeks. But Nice. But Super Unknown, man, that'sSuper Uknown as life, you know, when you dig into the lyrics,you know alive in this super unknown. You know he says, if thisisn't what you see, it doesn't make you blind, if this doesn't makeyou feel, it doesn't mean you've died. This song is awesome, like Iwas kind of hoping that. That's why I is lobbying for this one, but I was hoping we could discuss this a bit more. But it'sa cool tune, you know. It's the talks about life, about thenegative space, you know, like from like a if anybody out there islike a creative designer, you know you have things that you see, butthen everything that you don't see is kind of called that negative space, andI feel like the song kind of is like you're stuff everywhere, you know, and just because you don't see something there, it doesn't mean there's nothingthere. I kind of I like that song a lot. Man, it'skind of like a hopeful song, but then we get head down whole boy. This song is great because it's also about life, you know, andwe, he says, we see you laugh, we see you dance,we take that away every day. We see you cry, we turn yourhead and then we slap your face, and then he says bow down tolive your life. Like this song is there pressing as fuck, but thenhe says head high, you've got the smile. So even though, likethis song is like spot on about adulthood, right, how kind of like beingan adult kind of beats the creativity out of you and the joy.It's like you kind of become like a miserable prick. I feel like youneed to hold onto that joy, in that happiness, and you need tosmile and hold on to its. I feel like while the song, it'skind of like a cool, chill song, if you like, just focus onthe music, but when he gets to the lyrics, it's like,man, this is kind of fucking depressing, but when you hold onto that oneline where he was like, you know, you got a smile,man, you know. So that's that's that's that's my takeaway from from headdown. But it's either way. It's a great song. No, it'sgreat, man, and he's a pellet dude, bro He's it's nice tohave, I mean the go from where we were at in the late swith rock songs to get where we got in the early S, late inthe mid S. it's interesting. It's a one hundred and eighty, youknow. I just think they just saw the dynamics of like that was justlike hair spray booze and freaking girls, and then just got old and thatJohn were just kind of like hey,...

...we're it's different out there now,man, there's you know, the John was just broken. The S itwas just all different. It was going all different directions and if you didn'tcapture you didn't capture your audience with something different, you weren't going to capturethem, you know, and they came with something different and I true artistman trure. Oh yeah, I mean you had that Glam rock of thatwas. No, yeah, like you're like you're saying it's girls booze partyingand that's pretty much it. And these guys are like, well, notyou known? I reely's been a party. That's fine, but not everything islike that. So these guys kind of saw it. Maybe these guysare when clearly, I feel like Cornell was definitely like clinically depressed. Butyou know, people in life deal with that, you know what I mean. So for them to you know, talk about it and bring it outinto the open, I think is awesome. You know, get that conversation startand, you know, don't just party and have fun, because,guess what, not everything is happy times, as they say. So that's whyI always appreciate music like this. But let me get the black holesun. Amazing tune. It's I feel like it's interesting like how this superdark song became like arguably they're most popular song in the mainstream right. Imean I feel like if you ask somebody, like a random fan, like hey, sound garden, what's you know first song that comes to mind,they'll probably say a black hole sun, and that's fine. It's a greatsong, but definitely the most popular one, but it's definitely super dark. Spoonman, it was the song written about street performer artists, the spoonman, who also performs on the song. And this song also one the bestmetal performance at the ninety five grammy's. So Oh yeah, it's it's quiteaccomplished. Then we get let me get limo reck. Great Tune,the day I try to live. I feel like the day I try tolive. As a bit it gets a bit misunderstood. I think Cornell himselfsaid it was like a hopeful song and it's about attempting to be normal andjust go out and be around other people. He said the day I try tolive more means like the day I actually tried to open up myself.I feel like some people misunderstand that song and they kind of take it aslike a suicide letter, and it's not. But great tune. Also, sevendust recently covered this. kickstand comes after that and then fresh ten Drols. Good Song, Fourth of July. If I feel like, if youlook up the grungiest song ever, this should be that song. Thissong, just like ooze, is grunge right. It has it that killeropening riff. It's like dirty and just like grimy. It's such a greatsong and it was. The song was basically about an acid trip that cornell, that Cornell had. Then we get half and that crazy how I justset up like through all his albums, just in the way he passed.It was just like kind of just leaving bread crumbs all the way to theend, almost like a self fulfilling prophecy. And it was I watched, andI was like doing some research for this. I watched a couple interviewsof him and I was one I saw and I think it was from twothousand and fourteen. He was on was IT K rock? And I mean, granted, I think they said it was like early in the morning theywere doing the interview, but he just they're talking about you know that.You know it's been twenty years since super unknown. They released a twenty anniversarylike special addition whatever, and he just, I don't know, a man likeyou just he just seems and at this point he had already done audioslave too, and he's, you know, a very accomplished musician and he just, you know, he just did not seem happy. You know,like there is like something there with him. That I mean, and obviously weknow what happens. Depression is deep, man. Depression is deep. Imean he had it early on, man. Oh yeah, yeah,so it just how you overcome it and just I think it just talking aboutit and he tried to try to find a way to express himself through song. Oh yeah, that's he said that...

...as much you know. And hejust can't go into a mind of somebody without like kind of living it.And I it's sad, man, it's sad. It just and you don'teven know the people that are affected to correct that they can have that thatthat safe face and smile and like a Robin Williams. Yeah, Dude.So, yeah, I mean we're we're this episode is very happy, guys, I assure you. But no, I mean how does this song fitin? I mean, if it's in perfectly, a lot of dark anddeep stuff here. You know, he's talking about a lot of the deepfeelings, a lot of real feeling. So the song is, you know, if you if you call the album, you know, instead of super unknown, if you if he called the album fell on black days, I'dbe like, Oh, that's appropriate, so fill in dark days thought.Sorry, fell in dark I'm kidding. But lyrically, what jumped out toyou, Bak, about this song? Anything in particular, I mean justjust the beginning. Whatever you feared to come to life. Whatever I thoughtoff became my life right there. Just forget you right that, boom,boom. You know just what you fear is something that is no one knowsyour fear, right. Yeah, no one knows what you fear unless youtell somebody correct. So if you keep all your fears inside, man,that just becomes your life. So it's all about talking. It's all abouttalking about what your what your fear about. Yeah, I mean I have fearof public speaking, I have a fear of being intinet with somebody.I'm a fear of you know what people think. Well, talk about andprove on it. And he kept a lot of the shit in man,and just never he just didn't let you know. People in that knew himyou know like well, he I mean he said that. You know,one of the ways that he would kind of cope with a lot of thosethings was, you know, writing about it. But I know, Ifeel like something with him though, just went so deep. Or even writingabout it wasn't I mean obviously it wasn't enough. You know. So andthen it's your point, right, talking about it that's one thing, butthen also like making sure you face it, you know, that's the other thing. So right, so he says, you know whatsoever, I fear justcome to life and that it's your point. Like that, that's howthe song starts. So everybody has fears and things like that, you know, but that's kind of what the song was about. Right. He saidthat the song is about this fear he had about everything going well and thenall of a sudden you realize you're really scared and there's like no particular likeevents you can pin the feeling down to. It's just you realize one day thateverything in your life is fucked, you know, and I mean I'veso. I for me personally, I talked about during our are twenty onepilots episode. was stressed out like I like last year, I kind ofadd a nowhere, like started started having this like horrible borderline, like cripplinganxiety that I've never had before, like we're would have like random panic attacks, like it was horrible, and I mean I'm sure maybe some of itwas brought on by Covid and, you know, the pandemic and everything likethat, but I mean every I've been going to therapy to like trying tobecause I'm trying to face it right. I'm trying to figure things out becauseI do not want to continue down that rope because I it's it's only goingto get worse and you know, going through that it sucks and I thinkit probably over the years I've had, you know, anxiety, but youjust kind of you're so busy, right, you just kind of keep pushing itoff, pushing it off, and then here we are at a timewhen, hey, guess what, like were's nothing to do. You know, your home, like you can hang out with your family and stuff,but you don't have the diversion that you would if you had to go towork every day, at least for me, and you know, I'm working fromhome, which has been great because...

I don't have to, you know, go on, you know, go in the front lines like a lotof people have to. So for that I'm definitely grateful. But the sametime, like those diversions of pretty much kept a lot of this at bayjust because it's you know, haven't had the face it and deal with it, and over the years it just kept pushing it back, pushing it back. Well, I since every time I push it back, it just keptgetting stronger and bigger and then next thing you know I'm home and like forthe first like month or two of the pandemic I was fine, you know. And then, and I as he was saying, like you just getto a point. You don't know exactly when, but all the sudden thatwas just like what is this? And it was. It was terrible forlike, yeah, four months of just like every day you're just like havingthis like weight on your chest. That's kind of tough to explain if youhaven't, you know, dealt with it, but anxiety fucking blows. But butyeah, so I definitely see exactly what he's talking about in this song. But now about you might have you ever had like deal with anything likethat where everything was like good and you know, and then everything just kindof goes the shit? Well, you know, a lot of things,things happens, man, and if we really want to go deep, Imean we've had a real problem to get personal, to have a child,HMM, and you go through life and you're just do live a happy life, right, but boom, boom boom, get married and now you make adecision, let's have a child and sometimes a doctor will set you downand the world just stops and it's the weirdest Guy Damn fucking moment in yourlife, man, when you're like, Oh shit, life just happened.Yeah, life just happened. We went through this honeymoon wedding and by it, having a house and decorating and doing all that stuff, me going outwith friends and doing and now we're like, all right, I love you,let's that's that's the have a family together and it should be easy,and then the world kind of crash down, and it was. It was something. I won't go into the whole details of things, but it was. It was one of those things like man on. So I'm so happyto have someone so strong. We could do this together. Yeah, andyou know, we can, you know, learned from this, not I wouldn'teven say learn, just having that family around us to get through,and I hate to say, it wasn't one, it was multiple, likebad news. Yeah, you know, and we get to that point whenwe actually have a beautiful kid. All my Lord, I just saw achart, dude. I'm not lying, I'm going to I'm going to findit on my phone real quick it'll take me two seconds because it's the lastthing on my photo. It's my other than my daughter almost breaking her neckjumping on a PA. Six thousand five hundred seventy days since the birth tillshe turns eighteen. At Age at age nine, three thousand two hundred andeighty five days till she turns eighteen. Yeah, that's real numbers, dude. Yeah, that's real numbers. So, yeah, so everything was easy tillit and it's not even like what can I do? What could Ido? I that the doctors, you know, like modern medicine, isthe reason we have two beautiful kids and...

I am grateful for that and Ican write a whole book, book about the our whole experience. And thatreally humbled me and it made just just made me a just appreciate life andI that's that's one thing that I'll never forget that I went through. ButI did fall on dark days, man, I definitely did. Yeah, andit was it hurt, man, it hurt. I can only imagine. Yeah, yeah, it's definitely not easy for any way to go through. Well, thank you for sharing that. Yeah, I'm I'm sure that canhelp some other people out there. Too listening, you know, ifthey're going through a similar situation. But yeah, I mean, and that'sthat's what the songs about, right, you know, it's you know,that's why he wrote it. You know, things are going well and then allof a sudden you realize you just get scared. There's no particular ventydown. Things just boom, all the suddens, like everything just gets flippedon its head. And Yeah, that's that's what he was talking about here. Yeah, but to put a little lighter tone, what happened to me? Something that was going good went bad. I remember when I first coached myfirst teaball team and I had an assistant coach and I had a motherand I had a bunch of support systems. And then we had the first gameand I'd be everybody had their job, and then the second press they saidI can came. Everybody build on me. I didn't have an assistantcoach. I don't know, I didn't have this, I didn't have that. Okay, and you know what happened? I had feel duty. I hadto do the I had to do the lines. I forgot about that. The kids gotta practice. Oh, this kid got an injury. Gethit in the head this in this Oh my God, I'll never forgett that. I messed up royally. And and then I'll never forget the ladies lookand her face when she's like, here's the slip for for the kids toget their snacks. pleat's give that to me in the next five minutes andI'll go. Lady, I can't even. I don't even know what's up andup and down is down? I'm like, I'm like, I'm likeJerry sign felt. Lady, I don't even know what's going on. Yeah, you can take those snacks and shove it up your ass, because ourguts kids and show. My God, it doesn't get even easier. I'mcoaching softball again. It just it, just more, more headaches, man, but I love it. I'll keep on doing it. I love mykids. Yeah, no, I love do. Being a dad is thebest I we have. We're actually thankfully able to play, you know,softball and baseball this year. So our youngest is playing tea ball for thefirst time. I'm pretty stoked about that. We've been out in the backyard practicesaying Nice every day since it's been nice out, and then my oldestis she's going to start softball, because they start with tea ball, likeboys and girls mix together. They do t ball. It was called SmashBall, which is like the best thing ever, but now they're switching overto tea ball and now my older daughter She's playing softball now. So I'mgoing to be coaching my younger one and I feel like if I could pickone job, I would be a just a tea ball or smash ball coachfull time, like if I can make like a decent wage and still likesfor my family. That is exactly we're both patient. We're we're both patientfor tea ball. We're but those kids, well, yeah, we we alsoknow the game very well, but also like the kids. It's funhanging out with those kids. And also the parents aren't real well, normallythe parents are an assholes. They're just like thank you for watching my kidfor like an hour or two, will pick him up in a little bit. Yeah, you know, when you get to like little league and,you know, high school, then the...

...parents really become answerles. I'm whydidn't my son play? Well, fuck you and fuck your son. Soit's definitely different, but at this age, and yeah, it's like it's likefun. It's like, you know, you're the kids are just there tohave fun, you're also there to teach them, you know, thefundamentals of the game and stuff, and it's a blast, man, Ilove it. Awesome, the thirty something fun. Oh, I did getlike a moment where, like I was like I was just coaching last weekendand now we're talking about not eight, nine and ten year olds, andbut we're still getting kids that just started to play. So we're we're goingfrom my daughter that's throwing like forty, five, fifty miles an hour,you know, like, don't get me wrong, she's not bringing a heat. Yeah, I mean she swings fast, but like the results are not happeningyet, but she is. She's got the tools. She's got allthe tools. We just gotta just gotta, you know, get the the wrenchesout and just make sure that we can find tune this this individual.But I mean from it's all size of the spectrum and it just you gotto Mesh it. Well, man, that's it. Yeah, that isit. Nice. Well, then we should, we should definitely should doa coaching podcast. Coaching going right. How a coach how to coach yourkids. The best sign of a coach ahead, coach, if you're out, if you're looking into a practice and you do not know who the headcoaches daughter is or son, that coach is a good coach. That's Ohyeah, yeah, yeah, you need to obviously work with all the kids, for sure. I mean, if anything, you probably I feel likeI would probably spend less time, example, with my kid at the field becauseI'm going to be spending a lot of time with her off the field, you know, and at home practicing there to a little bit. Butbut yeah, sorry, I that's right. No, no, I do thata lot. I Apologize. Unless the kids a Dick, I'll neverwant to see him again. But all right, man, tell the blackdays by sound guard. You think this is a legit hit or a songgone wrong? Stop. Can we just leave it at that, man.Yeah, this song is it is my favorite song on the album. Okay, easily. Just you know, they didn't over exploit the song. Theythe video is tasteful. You know, it's well done. Cornell's amazing.You know, he's just he just nails it. He nails this song.Can you imagine him trying to try out for a metal band or grunch band. Like can imagine him being like the Second Guy, the third guy thatcomes on, and then like the fourth and fifth guy have to listen tohim. I just you. You'd leave him singing and then you're like yeah, Shit, I'm not gonna I think he was. I think he wasranked the best rock singer. Bye, I guess I don't write down myfacts. I Apologize, but yeah, he was. He was considered oneof the best rock singers ever. Yeah, I don't I don't doubt it.I don't doubt I mean. I mean you don't even have to knowa song that he sings from. You know anything from audio slave, thatGoddamn temple the Freakin dogs. Dude. Yeah, like you, you knowyou freaking make it when you're the first per since singing and you're singing withPearl can please? Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, he's. II don't know. I feel like I go back and forth between him andMike Patton from faith no more. Patent has like insane range. He cando all kinds of stuff. He's such a unique vocalist, and so's Cornell. There are times, I think, when Cornell's voice those kind of getto me on occasion. It's not often, but I mean he's up there.Lane Staley, obviously I'm biased.

Burton see bell from fear factory.You gotta listen to his voice because obviously you know I fear factor. There'sa lot of screaming, but he can also sing. There's songs where hedoes both. All like singing and then scream later on. It's like hehas a great screaming voice and then when you listen him sing, I'm like, Holy Shit, this guy has a phenomenal voice and he just has greatrange. So's he's up there too. So yeah, I mean any oneof those guys, I mean yeah, so we were spoiled growing up,man, you know, having Cornell and Lane Staley. I think vetters agood singer. Yeah, mumbles a bit here and there, but I stilllike his voice a lot. Mcbain had that raspy voice. I mean hewasn't you know, he wasn't like the best really anything here was a goodvery I think I've all of his traits. Is probably the best songwriter. Thatwas probably his greatest attribute, but at the same time he made itaccessible, which is also important. So you know, a lot of goodstuff coming out back then. But yeah, this song, it's awesome. Ithas this like odd six four time signature, but it doesn't matter.You know the lyrics. The lyrics are words we can all relate to.We all have dark stretches in our lives. This song, I think, isa great summarization of that. I love the lyrics. That music perfectlyaccentuates the lyrics. I don't think anybody's really witting on my anti here.It's a legit hit, in case you didn't know. But let's let's dothe fans have to say about this one. Okay, the fans have spoken andI feel this number. It's a good number. I feel like itshould be higher, but eighty three point nine percent said legit hit. Sowhat? Sixteen point one percent of people said that's a song gone wrong.I don't know who those people are. Yeah, that's yeah, but Iwill find you. But yeah, pretty much everybody who like actually responded toit. They just said legit hit and I agree. So there we haveit. Awesome. Yeah, well, back. Thanks for Janks for joiningus on this episode again. Appreciate you. You know, talking about some somedeep personal matter. I'm sure there's someone out there that can, youknow, Reson that, that that resonates with and hopefully it can help themas well. So we greatly. It's all about reaching it's all about reachingout, man, just like just keeping tracking your friends and people that youlove, and that's it. And just just ask some true questions and say, you know, like other than the bullshit saying how you doing this andI yeah, let them. Let them talk, man. Let people talkbecause they want to. They want to they want to tell, they wantto say what's going on in their mind. So yeah, stop being a talker. Other than me, be in talker right now. But listener now, that's part of it's your right, you know, if you want to, if you want them to give you like an honest answer. You know, obviously listening is the other part of that too. So just, youknow, if something's to tell you, you know, listen now. Ithink one I feel like one thing that we all should hopefully have learned.I don't think it got through to everybody, but you know, this hold thispast year empathy. You know, because like with this pandemic, likeeverybody was affected in some way or another. You know, and and that doesn'tmean that doesn't make it right that it go well, everybody has alevel playing field. That's not how it works. It just means everybody's goingthrough some shit, and I think like this pandemic kind of put a faceto the fact that everybody is dealing with Shit. You know, whether it's, you know there they just lost their job or they they lost a familymember or dealing with like mental health issues or health issues, you know,or whatever the case is. You know, somebody's going to be dealing with somethingat pretty much any given point in time. You know, obviously somethings are bigger than others, but you know, everybody's got something going onand I think the nicer we are, the better this world will be.Yes, and the next time you want to yell at your waiter for forgettingthe catchup that you ask for extra,...

...just say hey, man, she'sgot things on her mind. She wants to do a good job. Youknow this person at the at Walmart or what have you, everybody that youdeal with, you don't just just be kind at the end of the day. Just be kind, to be patient, call simmate patient. Be Patient,motherfuckers. Yeah, I mean, I'll also if you, you know, don't piss off a waiter because you're going to get catchups. Not goingto be the only thing in that cup. So there's that. And another thing. Stop any restaurant owners. It's that's listening to this podcast. Ifyou Goddamn give me a Ramikin of freaking catchup again, I will beat youin Ali. Stop with the Ramikins, with the Catcher, just give methe Goddamn bottle. Okay, I'm done. I'm sorry. All righty, now, fair enough. Ramikin, fuck that, fuck, fuck Ramikins.Sorry, I usually don't curse. I've cursed like five times. Well,this, this this song, maybe brings it out in us, I guess. But all right, man.
