So I am here to represent and we're doing August N, nineteen and eighty eight versus August nine Huteen D. Ninety seven, I'm on the nineties team Bot and I have been working tiressly.

Thank you. Ricket is a entirely adequate experience. It's average I'm more or less here for redemption. At the last few Thati've been on kindofee, like my, my soul has been crushed thanks to so to everybody else. I've been going against. I feel like I bring my best, and I hear everybody elses answers, so my God dame it. I preach into the choir brother. So this time I really feel like I'm bringing the heat this time. So, but if you guys win we're going to have to sample that Ban Danu fors performance in Hanters, I'm telling you wellthat's. Why switched an I only switched to win and I try to put together a roster of allstars? I don't Knowif we're going to have it, but we'll see I W N. I wouldn't worry, Callif the eighties, always Wen, I'm he I'm here to Wan. Let's do this all right, John, since UH micranger's not here to do these ceremonial coin Tos. You need to flip something to see who goes first, I am going to be flipping and this is. I was actually sat there during the introduction going shit. I don't have anything to flip. I do, though I have IAM a big fan of boilind. Soda comes in the Glass Boll Tastes, great, mainly cane sugar, and I have because they gave it to me for free, a Boiland Soda Cuzi, so we have got face or ass, as has nothing on it face as the boy an logo on it. I will be flipping that so teams pick face or ass mm a bowll lets. You picks you'r loser from the lasthld Hem out. I'm trying to think of what the the cop an a half approach would be here. So, let's go with as okay, all right as it is, I'm going to Tuss this up in the air and see where it lands toss that ass. They go bo tremendous, an the as Bo- and I talked about this before the show. Just I in case we did win the flip, where we were going to start and we're going to go with movies right Bo, where you still stick with that, we could go movies or we could go music, et'sgo movies, okay, you wanna, you want to kick off or you want Ta. You want me to do it. I can barely hear you said better yeah there we got horri better. I don't know my headphones are being funky. Today, it's like an MPR pied cast now hello. I myre lass welcome to poop culture, unwelcome to whispering liberals that show man. Thank you. Go ahead, ILI'LL! Let you kick that thatsepper off all right movies of August nineteen. Ninety seven, my pick the Fulmonti, which was released towards the end of the month August twent y Nine Nineteen D. Ninety seven tells a story of six unemployed men, four of them former steelworkers, who decide to form a male strip, tease act in order to gather enough money to get somewhere else and for the main character to be able to see his son. So essentially they decide hey we're GOINGTA essetially be Chippendales, but we're going to show everything we're Gong Ta. Let the junk dangle we're going to give everybody a show, and evidently it worked major critical success. International Commercial Success growing over two hundred and fifty million dollars from a budget of only three and a half million. This was the highest grossing film. On the U K untill, it was outsold by Titanic Bafto Award for best film nominated for the Academy Wards Best Picture Best Director, O best original screenplay, best original music score. British fill institute rank the full Monte, the twenty fifth best British film of the Twentieth Century Films later adapted into the two thousand musical under the same name, ind, the twent y thirteen play under the same name as well, and now we unfortunately have magic Mike which a lot of people don't know, but that actually follows it's actually a sequel and it follows the stripping careers of the sons of the fmopy guys, never realize a true, no Oy, O I'm going to make that Anan. No, Oh wol! It did have a little testacle in it. Yeah there was a hint of nut in the film there wasn't any fullon full frontal pene, but there was, but that was just the northern women. Much like how I like my coffee, just a hint of nutiness, not all the way. Fullmu yeah they're, still a little dip of nut right, hn, never busted nines. Unless, of course you don't have any half and Halfan. That's mucking disgusting, coming from the judge, God damn it all Rightt' a bow em with Fulmonti, and I'm going to go with a movie that started at the beginning of the month very beginning of the month, O August firs, nineteen. Ninety seven on a three million dollar budget, five million dollars. Today it took in twenty eight million dollars world wide, just forty four million dollars today. That's a pretty good turnaround for a little small movie and it manifested a lot of sequels the star of this film. It was a second big, acting role at the time and things were looking good for this lad. Sadly, a couple of weeks prior to the film's release had a cancerous tumor and his leg had to be abitated and worse than that, he passed away due to cancer Mer six months later, at the age of nine. Just one month shy, I, his tenth birthday is pretty sad stuff, but if you haven't figured out who I'm talking about, this would be the same lovable dude that played comet on e Full House and that's none other than buddy the golden retriever, who was the star of the August onine Huteed an ninety seven Disney classic Air Bud. Just so, you know how great this is of a franchise. Airbud had four sequels, where HEU got to play various sports very athletic dog, and this would also spawn the air buddy series and then that's pawnd. The PUP star series, which ind total, would add. Eight more films to the Air Bud, extended universe, then at all, leaving the franchise with twelve movies in the latest being pup star, which came out in February this year. So some real longevity with this, like Rado she's, tucking crite, how the fuck are we supposed to go after that? That's pandering man. You really expect us to follow up a fucking, cancerous dying dog. When are they going to do the reboot of Airbud, where it's just a dog? That's like pedaling drugs like he's flying up, he's flying a plane and dropping weed in different countries and stuff. They did that air bud y a as to have somebody gotto be G. Jus bite em like a normal bhe, do clause some guy. I love how this team is panded to my English hose going o the that wastr. That was transparent, gentlemen. That was very harp o y once you look at the month overall, that's I it's Urnin, that's full of acolades! I I I have to strongly disagree, but anyway, let's go onto the next. The next month. Let's go toready Carlos startusoff man, Al Right, so we're going eighty eight August twelfth early August. Eighty eight we had a movie. Thirteen million dollar budget made six point four million, but dont wit that Thloria this movie was kind of going off. A growing phenomenon at this point in time basically won lots of Rasbi awards for good measure, but it attain cold status in talking about Mac and me: Oh Bernie, Mac, yes, finefilm, exactly good old Bernie Mac was that the prequel that mister three thousand or was that just a separate thing altogether. The mackand cheese EXPLOISI that was that would be prequal, assumed mister, three thousand and the petty Mac show. But yes, no, we had been macking me the what Yo would call the rip off to et, as everyone called was tarn Ronald McDonald and Coca Cola in Thi Uthis entire movie, like I, I was nominated for four golden grasbe rewards worst director of worse new star thanks Ronald Mcdonald, got called out and then has zero percent on the Ritin tomatoes but, like I said, his pain, cold status throughout the years, Ou b, chaces selling high and blue Ra status. If you're, not those are not familiar with this at Paul Rud. Every time that he goes on, CONABRYAN has to show the one clip from macanmo. Yes, Hehanso SW. Do the soche ru think he's going to promote his movie, but all of a sudden it gets to the same s of an Acan he's keeping it relevant throughout these whole years, and I don't think he's ever going to let it go so he's keeping macking me relevant. We got blueread releases, you know, people are liking it if wou got blue releases and it's like t e. it's like the room of the eighties. It's so shety, it's good kind of, but I always loved about macking me is the scene towards the M, with a family of Hem walking down the road, and you just see them in the shadows. It doesn't look like aliens, it just looks like three or four people walking with cowboy hats on disturbing disturbing, to say the least, an interesting point, my friend in Canada, Peter Kaplowski, who Um runs midnight madness for the Toronto International Film Festival. He has a Japanese release of Mac and me on vhs from like ages ago and it just kind of went viral today. I think o yesterday because he found a clip at the end of the Japanese version, which is not on the blue raids, not on any other American Versan macamy, where the kid in the wheel, chair at the end of the movie, get shot. Quirwhyes like you know, 'cause, currently, at the end of the Movi right, you think he's exploded or blown up in the building and um the Mac saved them right or something like that at the end of at the end of the original ending that was on the Japanese v SS Um, the kid is wheeling himself towards the family as they're walking off into a van or something and a cop goes to like chase after him falls over the front of a car and as he falls over the front of the car, his gun goes off and shoots a crippled kid in the CIA Nickol, that's how they were going to end n, McDonald's, family, friendly movie. Nineteen on L aproved. Yes, you would have got have five percent on Rotten Tomatond, I'm sure! That's why Carlos picked Mac and me 'cause. We saw that trending viro wanted to stay topical topicalrelevant, that's what I'm saying mackin to me all day, so ill gover. To my pick, and my pick is the movie that also came out August, twelfth nineteen and eighty eight. It is a class that can really help launch the careers in Furt of them as legitimate actors of a meliaest of as keeper Southerland, Ludimond, Phillips, Charlie Shin Dermit, Melruni and CCY SEISMANINCO. Of course, I'm talking about nineteen, Eighty, eight young guns, whow. Did you start that whole thing off? Did it blossomed their careers? W 'cause? Four of those guys haven't been in anything since that movie legitimized their careers, a lot of those a lot of those actors, weren't seen as like serious movie actors until young guns and then after that movie they got more legitimate rules instead of doing silly comedy or tean movies. You know like mighty Ducora l Seriousyeso, the movie was budgeted for thirteen million dollars and took in way more than that grossing forty five million dollars, that's actually a pretty decent turnaround of the box office in nineteen and eighty eight dollars. I had to go with young guns. I doubt there's anybody here who hasn't seen it. It's a classic, it's on TV all the time and of course, we all know what' spawned the sequel which had a better sound track H. Yes, younger guns, GT, Ud and coming soon, even younger gunsit's, going to be a teen drum young, gist, youngest gun, toddler guns Ad. Eventually, it's just fucking Jiz on the floor and its a Lik ootis gun, spug gun, that's just a porno all right, John FROSS, okay! Well, we normally end with movies, but as we've started with movies, let me just do my little bit of a movie run down, so there were weidly. There was kind of quite a few I feiled to choose from in August N, Onine hutndred and ninety seven, whereas in Weedley in August, nineteen and eighty eight, not so many to choose from really the only other options you could have had would be the blobremake, the big blue, the last temptation of Christ and married to the mob. That's about it in terms of like possible to really good movies that came out in August nine undred and eighty eight, whereas in August nine, seven unusually for the eighties wirth of the nineties, I actually think the nineties year is better. This year we've got a ven horizon, came out, Youe got spow and came out cop land. I can't believe copland was not untety, the Furmanty, of course, which you guys mentioned a conspiracy theory, which is one of my like guilty pleasure, Mal Gibson, Richard Donna Movies Air Bud. As you mentioned, I mean just a classic who can overlook Ot Tatbut, I think some of the things you missed. You had coreyfeldman in Vlow I mean who wouldn't want to see that it did have Texas, Chans all master and ext generation, which I did toy with a little bit. Butyou had to leave it to Beev 'eml, what whatys thinking and for all of you playing along at home. All the fellow poopers. That's the second episode in a row. WHELL we've mentioned, leave it to bever, but I think that's go something to do with my love of the Beve Ward. We've had dead tides with ruddy pipaand, we on a TTN INITO my go cross that we got to go for pop culture, significance and things that Sha. So we that's why we went with the way we did. We weren't really trying to pander with full M Monty. We just happend to have an English hooking movie that happened in Ouit Your High Horse, John. So, interestingly enough interesting enough, those would not be the nineties picks that I personally would have picked, but it is interesting that ninety seven August, ninety seven a much stronger month overall th ninetee n eighty eight B'cause, I feel like young guns, although I'm a big Brat Pack Fan- and I I'm a big fan of that cost and that error- and I don't feel thake young guns- is actually as good as we'll remember it being like. Whenever I've tried to Rewatch it. I'm like this isn't really the kind like I always expectit to be like another tombstone and it Never Ino, you know, and yet so I have to give it to the nineties this go round and it's not just because of Rikman crush it's just generally, because he's always on the winning she wan se, it's just inevitable, apparently, but to give it to the nineties because August overall is a much bettermam and you're right. The full monty was something that came out of nowhere and did spawn a musical and a whole thing and a kind of a cult following Ol that wely there was never like sea cools or any well, it's go obatit's go leave it Lea Wan, an Lty, I'm a big fan of like t e movies to have a small budget to take off like mack and me didn't have a sequel either hello for Mac. I hate to be this guy and I'm going to have to call it out here. I didn't get to choose my teammate Mancrush Chowse, my teammate. For me I think there's some collusion Carlos. We bring you bring Mac and me to the table and the first round. Macames macames got the it's got the cold status. It has got the cold status, but it's g cult status for the wrong reasons. It's got cold coodies. It haand. I think that up Colt Status Ar Bud verses, Mack and me- you know the dog just completely acts out the alien you know out out acts the alien the dog is just each better better at basketball than the Alian. He died doing this rulyet. I conceted the round. As soon as I heard, Oh shit lit, get died of cancer and then I realized. No, I'm not even a little kid. A fucking dog you Wen wor came over man came over that dog belonged to Danny Tanner Mark. I I also have to say mack that that the weakness of the eighties month overall did not stand you in good tet ecause. I feel like I feel like with this round. I have to look at yes, the things you guys picked, but also in general, what the runners up could have been and with you guys as weally, not like young guns and Macme, like what else is there that comes out? You know that month that Couldaa, like decent runners, a married to the mob, the great movie, but it hasn't stuck around like I know a few people tho like it, but I hasn't stuck around. Everyone forgot about betrayed where FBI agent, debrah winger, falls in love with white supremises Tom Barrenger, who doesn't love that movie. It's like the black clansman, but for whitling living in Quussy. I'm kidding it's not that bad butno s I mean so when I look at the month of role, but I also look at the picks and what would I rather sit down and watch? Would I rather sit down and whatch young guds than macame? Would I rather sit down and watch ABBUTTON TE folmyonest? It's definitely tight 'cause. I would much rather sit down and watch copland more than any of them, but Arbud has to win o whyit's all about the basketball play W. I rather watch the fullmante replaced with Air Buds. Yes at Itud be weird because the dogs could then go calk out roand racket. No, nobody wants to look at Dog Kyle. Let's just move on before this gets weird, I'm going to have to smoke a shit ton of air bud to get through this. So a right, you guys have control of the board. Man Crash it's over to you yeah Bo. Where do you want to go a ll? Let you pick this one: Let's go with UH television. You want to go to television, go wo television, okay, we'll go television! Obviously this was an estrogen field panel show that was the brainchild of none other than the infamous and Luscius Barbara Walters. The view fromiered on August elevent, nineteen, ninety seven, a four Kohost Mardafer as a moderator Star Jones, who was amazing and glow debimatinopolis and Barbara Walters himself, and then they added joy behar, who was originally evidently Kindof like the I guess fifth wheel, and then she eventually just became a you can say the Jew. We are free, Manora, Jonora Jones yeah, so this bastard has been on the Ar for twenty one years, I'll be up with a different cast. Now, but that's that's! That's a pretty good run for a daytime talk, show that's not regis and Kelly or Bregis, or it's not even regis anymore. Now it's Kellyan Ryan secrest. I believe it's like Jerry and Garcia, or something I'd watch that man all right so again, like bojast said I got a show, that's twenty one seasons, two hundred and eighty seven episodes and it's the second longest consecutive running, show behind the simpsons scripted show who do we have to thank for this? If you think about it, none other than George Cloney, perhaps it's indirect, but I'm talking about South Park and that's Matttonantra Parker. They had this short called Santa versus Jesus and as the story goes, people were spreading the short on the s and they were copying. It asending it to their friends. Well, George cludy supposedly made over a hundred copies of Thi short and sent it it to all this people all over Hollywood and got people excited for this. So thank you. George for giving us this selection here, but initially tra, parker and rode a pilot for Fox- that's got just scrapd. I can't remember the dude's name, but he left box some producer. He shopped the show to like a fledgling comedy central and they picked up. The pilot, which was Cartman, gets an anal probe and they aired that on August thirteenth, anine, Huteen, ND, ninety seven and at first they expected this thing to get less than two hundred thousand views and ended up getting close to a million, and the rest is history. I mean. Not only is this iconic show, but this show made comedy central and what it also did is South Park pioneered the wave of mature television, because early on N, O n nine Huteed andninety seven round January, they came out with the the TVMA cerfification, as you were, Gas South Park was the very first show to use TVM a again. The rest is history, because now every show after nine o'clock for the most part, if that's good, is TVMA. So that's our choices, the view and South Park. Now here's Roy wow yeah that's going to be a tough one to followh I'll go first on this round. For this one, the fortieth annual prime time emmy awards is going to be my pet for TV. Normally, we don't. We wouldn't have got this one, but it was pushed back to August because of the eighty eight Olympics that were going to be starting in September and what's interesting about this one, it's not just the awards. It's what happened that night, the winter for the big award for the emmys outstanding comedy series was a TV show that beat out cheers the golden girls in Nightcourt, even though it only had six episodes, and that was anybody the wonder years. Oh, the wonder years wins the Emmy for outstanding comedy series in changes. The way that we consume T v. You know what we're doing here tonight we're a retro program. This was the start when people in American culture really started wayhold on hold on your selection is the emmys. It is not. I just wantto throw this outto the judge his selection is for the EMMIS. It is not for the wonder, correct my my selection is not the T. v show the wonder years. It is the award that they won at the Emmis for outstanding comedy series that now all the other major players that had been winning for years and years. This set the tempo for the new T. v shows that debute in the early nineties. So that's my peck wonder years taking home the outstanding comedy Sa Er showins, the AMMU Comon. My pick is no no Y. I, like my pick being about fucking Cartman, getting an Atal prome, that's not how it Goe! That's like Bo going over what they talked about on the view that day, you just cannot do that whatever mean, but I'm sticking with it. My pick is the MME awards and at that night they gave out an award that changed. Television just happened to be a show called the wonder years. I mean twotwo things about that, a that's that's so very wobbly gay. Secondly, I'm sorry happy days invented TV Nostalgia, didn't it, it also fucking killed it when he jumped the shark and then it was gone for decades. Well, Tru, but what I mean is the wonder years. Wasn't the first T V series to deal with the past in a kind of rosy, an nostalgic? No, I mean they had done it before even with again leave it to beaver it brought it back into our generation. Shortly thereafter, you had all the Fox shows that were introduced. That's where I was coming from, but you know it's, nineteen, Eighty, eight! U gotta, take what you' gotto take and apparently I'll take it in the rear on this one also also a Le a little movie called back to the future. I don't know maybe never heard of it taking it in ADIVINEAR. I'm sorry about getting me. depoted all righ suck you in your fortieth anel fe, following up on the technicality, we'll see this one holds up so this show you know thanks. The advent of this shows crucial to the spread of hip hop all around the world and for those who don't know, came out ugust. Nineteen, an eighty eight yo MTV raps debued on on the only channel back in the day that we had music and so anybody all over the world m TV Europe in T, V, Asia, Latin Latin America. They all you know they all got to see the new rat videos coming out, and so this spread rap all over the world. Is I pre spot ofie of course, and so it had a huge influence. Of course they had all the new and hip rapart is coming on, so they got to see them. com coming to play, live they've com to do interviews. Maybe just talk about like the culture in general. So it was, it was an all around show. It wasn't just focus on just the performance and showing videos they KINDOF. Did everything hip hop in regards to the the whole culture? So it was, it was crazy, influentshow and it I mean it started August night. Eighty eight WNT nth Ou Tho, an ninehuteen and ninety five, so about seven seasons worth and they went through a few djs, but good old, dray and and Lover Ed Lever. Yeah I'm going to drop something on. You read her Carlos you're, a DJ. I am all right, I'm going to go, I'm going to just do the song how it sounds and then you're going to do the lyrics guy. Oh Man, okay, paning, a Nanainnddrawn, a blank Mi's, a fucking ead lover, daco sh, maybe maybe it was the the performance the horn section just doesn't come through over the Mah yeah. I'm sorry it was a little distorted on the sed, but yeah, no Michael Windslow, but, like I said, the headlover dance, all kinds of you know: Branid things that came off with the show that you know were Popcul Triconsthe, show twen anniversary not too long ago as well. What was Nice about you m TV raps is in introduced rap music to White America. I mean there wasn't a lot of kids in rural Kansas who knew who the hell, all these budding hip hop stars were coming out of New York, city or L. A there was there was this was pre internet and cable was just coming into H. households mm so really the only way. If you lived in the midwest like Ba that you heard about rap music was because of y MDV raks, we had sent taps, but I think what we're missing here is that there is no t v show that as yet successfully a introduced country and western music to a blackmor. That's your second billion dollar idea. I try every weekend S, yeah m tvmtv raps, that's that's mine! God, that's a good one! You know they're coming out with a OMTV low car braps too, and then you can also get yo M T v body raps on one of your local facebook swap shops. Dor dray should have invested in that way. Back in the day, he probably could have used some of those low car brass. All right, well, look sosomething's gone on here, something's gone on here I f. first of all, I want to know who picked the months and who picked the EAS. Where does it come from? I want to know actually this month since we swapped teams mark picked the eighties and bow picked the night yep and we picked at random ye wow because somehow somehow, even though I'm all about that, you know I'm all about the eighties mark, you know I'm all about. Hei was soat the beginning of the show I was like yeah. He said the Eightis always win Wel, not this time, rnh. Just my Luckman. I totally fucked us because he's like all right picking eighties year, I'm like what haven't we done. Eighty eight he's like boom August of eighty eight, it's the only month in the eighties, we were at a stall. Nothing happened August of eighty eight and we always see this in the nineties. You go a month ahead or a month. Back in eighty eight is you old shoe gold? I Tha Gold Mine exactly but August emediae was in a waiting. That happens all the time, though Oh at ytime you get a month the month. Usually it's the month before I've noticed yeah always has some fucking crazy shit and you're like. Ah I missed IT Bay Dan Yup. I I I know the feeling, so I have to be completely clear that it is utterly utterly breaking my heart right now that I have to keep siding with the nineties. Wi, don't know how you ignore m the view and South Park and as as kind of cultural forces, whether you agree with it or like it or not. Look ou m DV raps. I totally get it the rat move in the hiphop movement. It was a huge move and it was an important movement and needed its TV presents and if you had even something that was half as close as that again for the second choice Vo then that would have that would have debt. The eighties definitely would have held it, but I can't like there's no way anyone listening to this anywhere. If I had gone shore, Yo m TV, rap speech, the view and south part would have been like what no you had to cancel your own pod guest R. Maybe rapand hip hop music like counter packed that as as a cultural movement. Maybe I am completely behind the the like all female host thing and it I definitely has that going for it, but I find it sensibility s extraordinarily pandering, naive and vague and the s the same thing with Southbark as as great as it is, and is very cultural as it is it's not something I'm watching all the time. I I'm kind of fifty percent find it very annoying of fifty percent find in funny, but he always watches the prime time AMIS. I alwaysi. I don't watch that either anbut. It's O, I just have to say on cultural significance alone. The nineties have to take it again, this round Guye, but I'm so sorry 'cause, I'm. I love the eighties, I'm wearing a t, shirt it Saysnineteen D. Eighty on it I am working rocket shooou it. The space blike Yo, the eity in a chicken sandwich on the tip, you're, fucking, killing me so yeah. Sorry guys nineties have to win. This ran tooah men. All right, you guys are still in control of the board allright. What Ring Are you going to put us through? Next, your call Rick, let's go. Let's go news: Okay, you want me to start yeah, you go all right, I'll start so on August, seventh, Oanine Hutdren and ninety seven at the macworld ex Bo in Boston, the newly rehired acting apple, CEO, Steve Jobs, who had been away from apple for twelve years after parting, in nine uteed and eighty five suggested that apple needed help from other companies and they had to end their destructive relationships, because none of that was helping any of the technology companies in industry and that's when he announced a pact between apple and Microsoft, which was received with a chorus of booze from the audience apple actually needed. This deal really bad at the time the company was going in the Shitter and that's why they brought jobs back after twelve years. Prior to this, the companies were basically huge foes of one another for more than a decade. I'm sure everybody knows someone who owns an apple, that hates Microsoft and vice versas. So the announcement of this deal, which sent o e hundred and fifty million dollars of apple nonvoting stock to Microoft it shocked fans on both sides. This would be like the Democrats taking a hundred and fifty million dollars from Republicans. It was that strange there were a couple of different parts. This deal, I'm not going to bore you with it. The biggest fascet af the whole deal was Mikesof the office for the longest time they had a ship version of Microsoft, t office on the Apple Platform and they gave them Microsoft Office and the other thing they gave microoft Internet explorer as the default browser on the new Mac Os, which is like the New York jets having playbooks with the fucking New England Patriots logo on it, it was that bad. I don't have that already O, oh w. no, that's the Patriot that has the jets playbook ifeverybody lickin playbook, but the way it worked Kinda in this situation. They were massive allies in the early eighties, most of microsofts revenue actually came from creating software for Mac and then all of a sudden Microsoft started making a a gooy based Os agraphical user intervase to West and jobs accused Bill Gates of stealing their idea and billgates had the best fucking quote. For this whole thing, he said well Steve, I think, there's more than one way to look at it. I think it's more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and we broke into its house to steal the T V and we found out that you had already stolen it because that's what happened. They stole the the graphical user intefiction from Xerox, so they never fucking had it to begin with. You know that's kind of where this whole thing goes, but aside from all the cool shit that Mircesoft gave them here without this deal it's possible. You would not be using an iphone today, because apple was in such dire straits, N, nineutdred and ninety seven. They needed this deal, but is it Giff or gi? Askin the imnortant questions? It's it is gift. I mean it sounds gift, but if you've been around long enough, you call it Yef, that's what mom's like you choose? It's, not it's, not a sexy story, but if you look at the cultural significance of that, without this deal seriously, you might not have had what we have today with avile. You know apple revolutionized things, Steve Jobs came back a month later after this happened. They officially appointed him the CEO, because at this point he was only like a stand in you might not have had any of the ship without this. This handout for myself, with that Alan, the sales of Turtle, necks everywhere, N, my Oseso, the other end of the spectrum, one of the most infamous and possibly devastating news happenings to come out of August of nine teen. Ninety seven August, thirty. First, a car crash that took place in Paris, France in a tunnel featuring, could you say featuring in a car rust? It sure, if that's the right word well in that car, crawich newcomer, producing gostarring. So, of course, Diana Princess of Wales who died as a result of the injury sustain in this car crash, her boyfriend, Dodi Faed, which is my favorite star wars, character the driver of the Mercedes Vehicle Henry Paul all pronounced dead at the scene. A fourth passenger in the car was the bodyguard who was seriously injured but survived. There was this whole kind of fiasco about who to blame for the car H. People were saying the Poparatzi were following them, but it turns out. The crash was caused by the driver, Henry Paul, who lost control of Hen Mercedes at highspeed, while he was intoxicated and under the effects of prescription drugs, so he was evidently a country singer. His inebriation may have made been worse by ENA, depressents and traces of an anti psychotic on his body. The investigation concluded that the photographers were not near the vehicle when it crashed after hearing evidence of the British inquest in two thousand and eighty jury returned to a verdict of unlawful killing by Paul and the Poperauzi pursuing the car so that stuff- yes, it's important, but obviously the wave that was left in the wake of this whole accident was very significant, just a huge outpouring of Griev, not only in the UK, but also here in America as well Um. You know, you're talking the funeral alone that they televised was watched by an estimated two and a half billion people. I remember see we were up in Sienna College visiting one of my buddies and we watched that in the morning Whel we were hung over hell. Remember t to this day yeah. I vividly remember watching that, but obviously public interest in her, as has remained high. She still gets press coverage like to this day. Like I I'm pretty sure recently, I saw her on the cover of a magazine at th. The grocery store, jugs hat was the the new issue of wet hooters. It was a memorial retrospective, cops Fucka, oncrack, open a cold one and John. I just I want to point out that's two months in a row that we had a Princess Diana Story. There's no coincience there we're not pantering to the judge it just happend to happen like that. This is, shall I save my true story about Diana for when I'm doing the judging or do you want to hear save it? So these guys can let us know what their top news is. All right I'll jump and go first here, go right ahead, so my news is h: Baseball News back in August, Nint, N Nineteen and eighty eight wriggley field adding lights, so they can start having some game night games, and this is pretty huge because the cubs are ONA hold out against night games. For decades they weren't installing hem the they dispel the culture there. They didn't need them, and even though every other stadium at this point was catching oppen technology and putting lights on, it was changing. The game they were able to. You know, have more games at night. There was actually a lot of concern for homefield advantage, because at one point you know when the cubs were supposed to be in the I think, eighty four world series they had a contingent plan that if they were going to be in the world series, they had to switch the games to where their games would bon the weekends and it wouldn't. They would be like afternoon games as opposed to primetime for the other team, so itwas like wholefield, hold poemfield and schedule. Advantages came into play, and so, finally, after decades of holding out, they finally put the lights out, they started being able to, like you know, balance out the night games, N and the day Games and really like once Baseball D as a whole adopted it. It really did help things out, especially with fans, because mans ere ti of sitting out for hours and hours in the sun. So if you can have more night games, you get more fans more money. It works out for everybody, so the the lights coming on at rigles was a huge thing, ju t not only for that stadium, but just to set the tone for the rest of the baseball culture to follow. Yeah nineteed ND. Eighty eight was a great year in baseball, no NOFOR noher and who did the Chicago cubs play on their very first game with the Light Carlos met. I don't know it was the match that they bet well that also inspired one of h journeys greatest songs too, which is of course, when the night, no first of all, he he was from San Francisco and he's a giants fan, so it wouldn't have been about the CU. You don't know that t read the liner notes. Oh okay, who t who turned on the lights? Who was the first one tolike? Did they get Bill Murray in to PLAC SOMTING? It was Veneran, cusack showed a now. It was actually the same person that let the dogs out, I hear ohbut. He could let them out at night now 'cause the fucking Bohobman NN Pieroyes. They did they're also the same one that sold the drugs the princess die driver so allright. I also went with the wide world of sports and on August, ninth nineteen. Eighty eight something happened in the wide world of sports that changed hockey forever and that was Wayn Gretsky. The greatest player ever was traded from the Edmonton Oilers to the Los Angeles kings sounds like you know, that's not such a big deal. Great players get traded. All the time this was really one of the first time in sports, where there was a player that really transcended hockey and he was being traded to the team in Los Angeles, one of the largest United States sports markets and really the long term. Repercussions of this trade are still being felt today, because reintroduced hockey and introduced hockey to a lot of the American audiences hockey p predominantly larger in Canada, but in the south, in Los Angeles, it now became a mainstream sport getting more prime time, television coverage, so wingrutsky getting trated to the Los Angeles King. Can I just interject real, quick hockey's on n BC sports, not really the biggest morgag bull channels, outhere. Currently this year Madew, he said it's thet grew to like great like up here, I'm just just throwing that out there, your Gttingyou find me an American who doesn't know who wan Grudsky is, and if you ask for WHO Wangredsky played for most people will say the Los Angeles Kings. I was going to say the Lakers, but all time scoring leader of all time, ind hockey, so you mean that guy that got caught in that betting ring with his wife. So that's what I had Wengratski being traded, the Los Angeles kings and what's really cool about this trade is ever since this was made in all sports NFL NHL NBA, any trade that comes up. They always hold it to this standard. You know like if a train seems too outlanjist ar too crazy. They say wow if winggretty could have got treated 'cause really what they traded hem for was a package of a few other players in cash in a bunch of draft picks. It really wasn't that much since it was such a crazy trade now any other trades that come up, they hold it to the same standard. Well, is it was it as bad as the Gredski trade? No all right, we can do it, don't they usually put it to the standard of the Ricky Williams, new Orlean Saint Street, where they gegrate trade robbery Seei, see I'm just throwing it out there, just throwing it out a right, Ohn Cross, all right, whe sleeps on sports. No, you see what you have to understand about me is that I'm a big Ice Hockey Fan, oh so the Wangretski trade and story, and all the rest of it is, is a good story to throw my way. Um. It's just I'm one of the few people who would much rather have seen him continue playing for the oilers. Then then go to L A, however, so that was a good story had to come up with, as was the Wrigley Fields, adding lights. What what do I feel like a child being patted on the head? Oh thetory, that was a good story. It's your participation! TROPHY MARK! I cannot lie Um. You know beg what I liked about. I was Acarlos at so a Onpo Yu, like they got up with the new technology, and I like lights as old men, who you know back from the old ages, Stan like stadiums like back in the early nineteen hundreds that had like firelights and gaslights and shitlake has'tthey Torti on you know what I mean th they had like, they had some form of light yeah. They might just ride light a ring of friar around the LL bring a firehood texactly. They had torches. I baseball hell a lot more interesting when you think about it, inde well, exactly if they had to play with flaming bats untilburnd down to a Cinder Gass, O Alway Eaif. I had a nickel. I tell you what, if the Bulls were doused in gasolene set on fire and thrown a the bancmen in yeah, you would have o a lot more. A lot more home runs, I think, and a lot more dead te Atenta Tad uh one ofthe words, I'm losing all my words tonight anyway. The WAINGRETSKI trade is monumental for sports fans. It is, however, Ihang Se if I had. If I had my wish, I would give half a point to you guys for the Gretsky thing and half a point to Freemanora Jones for the Princess Diana's death ecause, I think wains Grwaand, Grad Ski, is going to well a far more important than whatever Steve Jobs did to me away. What what kind of phone do you use? I understand I know now w kind. The thing is is that we can't claim that every time like apple figured something out aint led to all this other stuff like if it was the formation of Apple. That's one thing and breiing Steve Joes back in is fine, but it's not like trading Greatski to fock. In Los Angeles. I tell you noi'mjack, no, no, it's, okay! You don't have to joke John, so I would. I would like to give like one point to one one: team ot one point to the other team in all honesty, but I think that the the death of Diana has to trumpet all and the only reason I say that is because so obviously I was born and raised in England right, I'm I'm seventeen years old when Diana dies waitly enough, I think it was you recrusette about being hung over finding out EAA, so the night of Diana's death. We had had this huge party for my Stepdad, who had um finally retired from the military to the point wher he couldn't get called up anymore. He had been er leftenand colonel for some years, and you have like a period of time where you can still be kind of like called into the IGTG. U- and it was his final thing and he had a big party and stuff like that and all the family was there and all our friends were there and we all got drunk and we stead up all night and smoked we and it was fantastic- was Li. Allegedly, it was a great night, no, not allegenly. We we can blow a bunch of Jack Daniels. It was so the following morning ad around like eight ninety and whenever the news 'cause it happened at about like two three. Am, I think, out time in the U K, but I no one was like talking about it until about eight nine M Um, my mom runs into the bedroom, where I was staying at my Stepdad's place and goes John John Wak Diana's dead and my honest response was: I sat there for two seconds. I went. I don't know anyone called Dian Iran, Aroni acks in my had I grew up in the UK oviously im well aware of the raw family. I was well aware of obviously Diana and it was much publicized that she'd gone off with dirty and left Charles and it was a big scanal, ah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah, but honestly, which seventeen year old, gives a fock like who cares maut any it um? What was a huge surprise to me, like legitimate surprising, not like I knew the tabloids would have a field day, but I had no idea like watching Um. We they call the road outside Buck Palace, the male ray and in in in the road up, Tho Buk Palace the next day, filling up with millions of millions, ofd millions of people weeping and crying and like the F- and I was watching this on TV once I finally woke up around midday and was eating my bacon sandwich. I was W. I was wting interesting, like whoare these people who give a ship like it was I legutiment surprise o me like I, I thought I thought it would be like a days worth of news. You know like it is when a famous person tot like a FA factor, dies whatever everyone's like. Oh, is it sad and so and Soi's dead, and then the next day we will just gind to go back. Toalie N, itis, Wat, iays right, that's up there with Michael Jackson, rigw, I would say it's even more W. I I mean I don't know 'cause. I wasn't e right, 'cause, that's th, N, Michael Jackson's kind of back and forth. I had two sides of the coin with that one and also, but it very similar in the way the scandal like mared his last years in the way that scandal ad Kindof marred her last years and in fact mals her death blased on the the drinking drugs and the driver, but it it's. I absolutely blew my mind that anyone gave that much or a ship at all, and then you know and then fucking elt John's, like I could write a new song carly departed friend. But instead, what I'm going to do is something to take a song that was about Mallinon road, that people kind of like Adlsas, that was kacking horrible. That pissed me off that he did then he wewer, but the last thing I'll say on the Diana thing, just 'cause. It's I think it's interesting for so. As I say, I was at a party and we were out late and we were in the street to the town Branton, which is kind of a coastal city in Iningland and H. There's a lot in the same way that there aren't a lot of late, big cities in the. U S, there was a a afew alnay. What we call news: Agents Bu, you guys call latbedeges rate and they put out the UM newspaper stacks in the morning and, like I say, Diana had been a massive tabloid scandal for for years. At this point, since the divorce from Charles and to the headline, you know you have the first edition and then they do like a reprint later inaay, the first editiof headline that we all saw like outside the Badeca that night that I only kind of put together later once I was awake and realize what had happened was you know, Diana cavorts with doty on a yacht and his pictures of her in a bikini and his is fucking filthy Egyptian with his hands all over her and e was all that kind of like semiracist English, tabloid bllacs. That, like I, don't understand why people read it and the moment she died, the very same papers pulled all their papers off the thing reprinted and it was all queen of our hearts and fucking princess of our dreams and Blah Blah Blah, and it was a. It was definitely a a learning thing at that age. You know nine. Seventeen you're very impressionable B, T you're already rebelling against tucking anything that comes at you, but seeing just the one. Eighty Tha most media doesn't give a shit about anything but like whatever's, going to sell their filthy, despicable, rags, Um and H, they did a total one. Eighty on Diana and it that made me sick, elt and John, like reriding, the song kind of made me a Beit Sick and Um, just the outpouring of grief, just kind of surprised me total, and I think that I can pinpoint my disillusionment in humanity in the world to that very moment. So there we goeand once again. This is a theme that comes up every time we do. This episode is, if you don't understand your history, you will be doomed to repeat it, because we do the same shit today, yeah well, when he was talking about that. I know it's comtoo completely different things before I saanything, but didnit, not sound, like nine eleven kind of yeah yeah. That's what I'm talking about everything changed. Everyone was Lotti di and now we heat each otheryeh yeahyep exactly anyhow. Anyhow Johnga, sorry, I've rambled on long enough about the subject. Obviously the nineties, when Um, just because of the enormity of that news news that shouldn't have been as enormous as it was, but it it was apparently and H, and obviously that other Steve Jobs, apple thing and the rightthe sale of total necks, and I can't I'm honestly that with three rounds in, I cannot believe the nineties a winning. I just can't believe it guyse what happened. Ri Bo, I picked up. REALL AA matter we're one of the two point round, so you can go wherever you want. If you'r all right, I just go music uh. Actually, let's, let's go hot products, yeah yeah as CO hot products. I actually. This was part of A. I guess the lead up to a wedding that I was in eearlier this summer and it was a huge part of my childhood growing up. Everybody except my poor ass had a Nintendo sixty four, which was you know when it came out, for I don't know about you guys, but when this came out, this was like huge for me an into no sixty four, and then you have this whole line of games that just kind of to this day have a level of playability that's untouched and among those one that was released August, twenty fifth N, Nine Teen D. Ninety seven, a first person shooter video game based on the Nineteen Ninety five film Golden Eye, and that is golden eyed, double o seven on the en sixty four, so you've got your single player campaign and you've got, of course, the beloved spit screen multiplayer mode. You could do up to four players, you do all these death matches. So essentially this kind of I mean there were games like this beforehand, but this is, you know, probably one of the most influential catalysts for things that we have today, like the call of duty, multiplayer, h experience, but actually the the game when it came out, had really low expectations. They had a a pretty unsuccessful, showing at e three, I n, nine Huteren and ninety seven, but it turned out to be a critical and commercial success in nine tteen. Ninety eight and sold approximately two point: one million units or copies or whatever surpasse the legend ofzelda the ackering of time, which was released in November of ninety eight. Overall, it's sold more than eight million games world wide, making it the third best selling into no sixty four game behind supermario. Sixty four in mariocart sixty four two hundred and fifty million dollars world wide. It's oftenly or it's frequently sided is one of the greatest video games of all time. Ind Two Thousand and seven game prol placed at ninth in the fifty two most important video games of all time, calling at the consol killer APP of the nineties h and the best game ever for a licensed film. Let me ask you this bow. We were talkied about this. The oher day when was hit last time you played Goldmin. I believe it was may pretty crazy. Yeah Game Thet came out in nineteen. Ninety seven people still rave about it. To this day, you know I hate to play devil's advocate, but it's kind of hard to fucking argue with golden eye, especially with this crew. I think we all grew up playing that the only bad part and at the time it wasn't a bad par, because his is all we had. We had the four player split so nowadays I think everyone's so used to it. I think you could look at other people's screens, but back then you really couldn't you had a fucking look at your own et and concentrate yeah yep did any of you ever break out the cardboard and the duct tape to make a diviner? I did at Teisso Classic Yeah Eau used to do that Y Coan. Do it with two people, but if you could do it with four and you were able to divide your twenty seven inchinto four wears, you were fucking, talented, Youa, OC, Sol the time on your hands. Twenty seven inch. We used to play this at college onlike. I don't even know what frucking inch it was. It was that small, it was an Oll CT television, probably the Moen, I'm looking at you guys on on. My laptop is probably bigger than it and we used to play it on there and the gameplay was so fucking good and they've, never beted until youwere doing multiplayer, with somebody with a God. Damn Fuckang Golden Gun. We game older. You guys ever used the cheats or t the stuff where you could like make the bubblehead version. Yeah could have like. Ah Man, I fuckand loved that that was so much fun. Big Bubbly head like FG. Again, it was great until someone had a Fuckang golden gun and you got thi Ti Oyou, O so good. We played pumble head and unlimited amots, just parking Billian, all right, so we'll start out around with gold eye released August, Niney, Seven, Oh August, twenty, seventh, nine utne and ninety seven Scotts Valley. California, company was born by the hands of Reed Hastings and RANDOF and, as the story goes, Amazon Trye to buy them in n nineteen ND inghty nine for twelve million dollars and a couple of years later they were in debt. For twenty million dollars and they trie to sell themselves to blockbuster for fifty million dollars, but blockbuster laughed them off. Well, luckily, for them there now worth a hundred and forty two billion dollars and blockbuster just closed its last two stores in the United States and, of course, the company that I'm talking about is none other. The netflick who es I haven't heard of the net flix detflix began their business. Have you guys heard how this whole thing transpired with Neflix? No, like I heard that there was again, there was a competition with blockbuster. They were all trying to start the same service, but what what happened? That Ha? That happened afteroso first off Yo, you need to know, read hastings okay, this guy in nineteen ninety one he started a company called pure software all right. Five years later, he sold that N, nine huneed and ninety six to rational software for seven hundred million dollars. This dude is loaded to the teeth, one thousand nine hundred and ninety seven. Lo behold early nineteen enhty seven. He forgets to return a copy of a Pallo thirteen that he rented and he's charged with a forty dollar late fee Tom Hanks ain't cheap. Because of that forty dollar late fee he brainstormed the entire ride home because apparently he was embarrassed to tell his wife about this. I don't know why he was riches Bock, but he came up with this idea. He put up two and a half million dollars of his own dollars and that's it. He made the shit and I mean they. They started out just doing rentals where you would rent through the mail, and you can keep that single rental for as long as you wanted, and then you can get something else and then, as time grew on, they started doing subscription bases where you got. You know three or four a month, and you know- and you did all this stuff well in two thousand and seven well. Actually it was two thousand and four where they announced that they were going to do streaming online service, but it took them three years, put it all together. So by two thousand and seven they put it all together and they put their first thousand movies online and that's all she wrote fo they mean from there. Are they still around Teday Yeah? They are responsible, theymaor, the Plethera of streaming services. You have now Holoo Boodoo Amazon, prime, every fucking, movie, Channel Hbo, Go Show Time, stars or cinema. Anything that's streaming now. It all began with them, and I will say this: They weren't the first ones to do a streaming service. It did start initially, I think t was Hong Kong Telecom tried it with ITV in nineteen. Ninety eight they put up like a billion dollars, but they were a little before the time never made it but Netflix. This is fucking. It and interesting. I know H, you know John Ou're into physical media. Like I am I figure I throw this out. There NEPLEC still owns DVD com, which is their DVD rental business, which is their original. You know you sign up for a subscription basion and keep it as long as you want to send it back in twenty eighteen. They still have three million subscribers on DVD dotcom. Now they have a hundred and twenty five million online for the streaming service, but they still generated fifty six million dollars of profit in twenty, an the first quarter of twenty eighteen just in physical sales. This is a massive fucking company, but here's t e cool thing for the people like physical media, a lot of people might not realize they have a selection of over a hundred thousand DVDs which easily outshadows the like five thousand streaming titles that they have available in eflix yeah, and I still can't en anything to watch exactly so. If you want to find something, they have a massive massive fucking library and just to add to that, like physical media's, never going to go to way just because of the fact that Hollywood's just never going to give away the ship for Fredo and, as you could see, with neflix now, with Disney pulling stuff away, ecause they're going to do guess what their own Fuckin streaming service, because they want to be a competitor of theirs 'cause. Why should we give them our shit? You could just go and get this physical shit from Netflix, so you cal do both sides of it, but it's a huge fucking company and that all started in August of nineteen. Ninety seven, but also look, I mean look at the fact that it's taken Disney. How long in fact, isn't he even announced they were going to be doing a streaming service what about six months ago and it still hasn't come out. It's still going to be like next year, whatever even the company as powerful as Disney with all the money and time and people could possibly Wan. Even they haven't been able to figure it out yet um D, I imagine when the streaming service comes out, I won't have figured it out completely yeah. Well now that they own properties like the x men and the Simpsons and family guy, that's just goingto be huge for them. They fuck and on everything, lets show Ja. You know totally, I mean, which is why netflicxs have been making their own stuff for the last like few years. That's why they that tw Twell, we don't want to bad mouth, the the financial backers of infirmary, media or anything, but I wanted to Oswick. Will you send o n hundred and twenty five million online subscribers? Is that just in the? U S or is that world way that's world wide, so they they branched out over the years they began in the? U S and then they extended to the? U K now: They're in Europe, South America, they're fucking, everywhere, yeah N, that's whats my mind about that number is actually how small it is like and the only reason I say that is we all go around with this. I think we do. Our generation goes round with this idea that yeah everyone has fucking Netflix, but actually, but and then we see like Fuckin, I dontnow some bullshit, a BC show is still running and he like who the fuck watches that and then he sudene realize, there's o e hundred and twenty five million hundred and seventy five million tairy people in the US alone that don't have nepl or probably more. But you don't realize this stuff until you look into it, because it was the same thing. I think it was last episode when we talked about the cable companies come out in the early eighties and those numbers were miniscule yeah and I think you know, as children were like. Oh everybody's got a Fuckin; no, they don't and everybody doesn't have neflix so, but that's still a huge ridiculous number compared to a lot of things. And what what's fascinating over here is that in the UK, oh about, I think it was about three or four years ago. They went right that tot war stopping all analogue transmissions, and if you want to receive TV anymore, you have to get a a set top box right and you could get freeview through there, which got you like the BBC and various other things. But you still have to pay for and buy and connect up a box right Um. Whereas in the U S, there's that law. That essentially says they can never stop analogue transition of t. The four main public networks Raa still broadcast analog and you go really. People is to watching Shit on analyt. Well, apparently, probably millions that we aren't aware of you know S. There's plenty of cable cutters. Now that are still o know, absolutey need you need your local stations. I love how he brings up the set top box and how important that was when, if you go back, if you e doing decades episodes he chastise us for bringing up the set top box now more than was redaing, I chastise drick for benghorring about it. That's what I chassei him for I'm Veryn new on it couldn't have been too boring. 'cause you go on talking about the settop box, so all right, so those are our our picks there. We got gold, Ninh, double o seven and the company Necklak Alrighty, all right. It's time for us to lose Carlos. You started us off all right on the downfall, so I had seenaustnineteen D. Eighty eight we got a sigal release called altered, beasts beat hem up arcade game, it's actually was really popular and all the arcades for those who don't remember, we used tod go actually physicallyth. Two places play video games and this was actually one of one of the more popular ones. It was an order to save his daughter. Zoos transforms into his Centur as a Centeron and n into n wbs to use power ups. I guess so. I hadn't planed the game in a long time, but I remember playing this at the local puppa going down to the movie theater arcame playing. I guess it's. It's still used in pop culture. At's been popping up all over. I guess back in the day, the Parker Leuis can't lose a season one. They used it a bunch of times for references. There's been a few bands who've named their albums, after as altered, beasts break and Benjamin actually release a promo flash game. After altared Benjamin based on Altra bs back in two thousand and nine and a Sacramento Sacramento death metal band changed her names from Gary busy to altered beasts. You never changed your name from Garyb. I know that thatwas a questionable buckin abuse, that's just it never bring up breaking Benjamin in a retro battle. He was questioned out of all the stuff. He said Wak Oventon and I cooking Ligheolesae, going up. That's what the red flags start going. You know the red lights start warning all right. Oh I'm Gon. Eighty Eight! We got fucking reach for this stuff right so for mind. We're GOINGTA head over to Ryn Brok, New York to a little company called IBM, who invented something that I think we all kind of used today. I'll spare yo all the technical details, but what it comes down to is IBM introduces artificial, intelligent software for the very first time in August of nineteen, Eighty, eight, basically, what it bowls down to is. They introduced a line of computer systems that for people that weren't savvy with computers in a business setting, they could simply just ask it. Questions now and the computer would help them solve business problems. They used it for shipping companies, it was a. There was three or four different variations of it, one of which they used for shipping companies. The software actually came out as part of the current licenses for all IBM computers, but if you wanted to continue using the service and purchasing it, you had to buy the additional licenses, which were forty, two thousand dollars to ninety eight thousand dollars, apiece, so artificial intelligence introduced for the very first time in August, Ne Housan, nine hundre and eighty eight by IBM created cyri pretty much andanskyinet the same time, Ann Sina. At the same time, Wamison grannit it ID it's, not artificial intelligence like what we see today, we're not talking. You know the little creepy kid from ai or anything, but this is where it started. So that's what I have artificial intelligence. Ibm John Cross tell us how bad we got creamed. However, however, I likei like a heavy sat woman loguys. It was all over when the words golden and I were put together. Sorry Yu. You have to understand something about me. I'm not I'm, not a big Gamee, I'm a huge movie Fan. I love my music and you know I, like others, tohahakey and things like that butway game, but wait did Goldenni use artificial intelligence. No! No! o Breaking Vanjamin reference go shut of the coffee and break. U Ot of my car LE YOU'RE, not helping collusion, may Rushinto my fucking partner for me, and we got Mac and me and breaking Benjamin Tinthe year I's breaking Benjamin like a precursor like a prequil to breaking bad nd. Is that what it is? It's wrs? No, it work, JO JOKING UM! So Y! No, I mean Golden Ithero, I'm not a big Gamer, but there are two games Um. That IV will take to my grave adoring with with all my heart and all my being, and one is sonic the head jogand one is the original son like that drug and one is gold, and I with a third one, being the original duc hunt, just because it was one of the first console games. I ever saw Um and Ducon, and I was absolutely like transfixd H. I was like wow. What do you mean you can shoot ducks on e T v? That was like fi still ask myself that same question of this day s. Why h went through six fucking TVs before he realized you after use a light, Gon and what's funny? Is it doesn't matter where we, it doesn't matter how many freqint decades of Pastit doesn't matter what we have never ever ever been able to replicate the thrill and joy ONA much artificial intelligence like artificial intelligence. Still to this day we use it to be like syrry. Can you play fucking Bonjovia, O something? You know what I mean like we don't that's all we use it for. Can you get me temaing? I have to jerk off in ow iremidme everybody who's lauging is now listening to Bonjovi Ann has a reminder to jerk Alnyo're welcome. We use it to me like Alexa playpon nonot con the bad nices band Pon, you know so like that's. The problem playing with Po Ai Wellit's likethey all went to the Rhode Island Camican and there was an Alexa device in the housemancrest. Do you remember what we kept asking it to play? No it', a mattal tods the person who owned the H, the House that we were using had their elexi device set up and we found out because somebody tried to use it to play music that he was using it on, like his cell phone at his house, 'cause, it's all connected with the same advice. It's all connected to the same device, so he kept changing t whatever song he was playing to playing the band anelkun. Oh, that was me he would put on like fucking rods. Stewart Likeelexra play Anocon Blay. I kicked you down the stairs, 'cause you're pregnant, but let me Ru Rouno hands who here actually uses the talking device on their phone like anytime, syry POPs on my phone. I just want to be able to say Surrey, FUCK OFF AND IT Turn O. I ESA ther, trying to get it on yeah who uses it. I have a Google home and I use that a lot so I I ose my I use my Alex. I don't use my at all. I never'cause 'cause, it's so much easier to go. Oh, I want to PLAC POT IFI ill, like that. spotify and I press a button and it comes, I don't need to say like say, spottify and then like series I wat want. Why did you say? I'm sorry? I can't do that for you, here's some commands. I can do stick it in my poope. You know whatever IIT's it's awful artificiall intended the worst but golden eye and and sonic and Pacman and Duchun a fucking, amazing and Gold Nig, so many hours at university playing that with my housemaids such a great time. Such an awesome thing, I've completely forgotten what other people's picks were. Ol Netflix begins lie. We discusse, like everyone, has netflix now, but they don't only about Ha. The people in America have it, but Yeah Hnde and twenty five million at Twennty a hundred and twenty five million, which surprises me that that's low it's a huge number, but it surprised me it's that low altered beast. I'm sorry it was. It was an Oky game. I played old tovase, but it was no Galden Ey and I B M doing something: ovs without artificial intelligence, the listeners to the show couldn't say: Cyri play poop culture, bodcast or Ay. Alexa playpoop culture, true now they would have to just press a button and it play automat Ro Yeah Right S. do I hear a win for the Handis? You hear another wind for the fuckin nineties, another no yeah hold on w. We are up pived Tozero, we've never had a shut out even for the eighties. An eighties have never sut out. It is five toyear we have to play the last round. Obviously we only have one thing left: It's music and Bo. Do we want to Diferto them? Yeah? Let's, let's differ, that's fucking differ. You guys go all right. I guess I'll kick off. Music and I'll keep it sweetened short because in August of nineteen, eighty eight an album was released that I'm pretty sure everybody's familiar with and why you're familiar with it 'cause they celebrated the thirtieth anniversary of this album a couple of years early with a movie that came out about it. Of course, I'm talking about the release of n Wa straight out of Compten, one of the greatest albums of all time and heralded as the greatest hip, hop, album or rap album ever recorded, and I'm sure everybody's seen the movie that came out about it. So nwa straight out of compton sweet, simple to the point Carlos. What are you got August, twent Y fifth, Anine Hutden and eighty eight fourh studio album for Metalica and justice for all the first, the awesome music video one got them Agramman award for t e first time they added the m metal category of me best metal performance, so they wan the granme for that so Metallica, an justs for all now see if we would have started with music. Maybe it would have changed the tide a little bit more in our favor. But I don't know know what Da e you guys got. Iminetely I'm going to leave you all in suspense all right! Well, IWILL! First off I gotta O I'll just start out this one av to preface this whole thing. By saying I felt dirty Si. Inall day there were two picks that we get chose from, and I got saddled with this one and I feel, like I know, theire entire fucking history, which is just disgusting Um, but it's really not. When y. You look at the whole thing if you, if you really open your mind to this, it's kind of mind blowing and that's the BACHERY boycs released they're self titled US Debt Album on August, twelfth, Nineteen and ninety seven like them or not. This is one of the most successful Daby albums of alltime fourteen times platinum selling, forty million copies. If you had a little sister or a girlfriend 'cause, I'm sure if you're a god, you probably didn't listen to it. Maybe you did B T I'm pretty sure you heard one of the six singles who were on the album we've got at going on quit playing games it my heart. As long as you love me back streets back, everybody I'll, never break your heart and all I have to give and aside from the amount of albums of this soul- and this is wides after doing the research I was just like fuck. Okay, I gotta really accept this. This album was really responsible for the shift and music. Even in pop culture. You had boy bands had basically been dead since new kids on the block and fat bastard or Buckin loop, earlman decided Oyou, O a ENTV Yo met him or Rick Ruben at first' matter wel. He decided to only release this band's first, two albums in Europe 'cause. He was like fucking. This is dead over here and they blew up in Europe. So they took this album and they rereleased the second alum of the released in Europe, and that was Baxtr fatory poise and they released it and pucking exploded and really the rest of his history with this one, because these guys went on to SA fucking Aszillian albums, everybody knows who they are, and I mean everybody. I love some METALLICA shit and Nwa B. Everybody bucking knows Ho backs your boys up like it or not. Every fucking person in the world knows who they are and d say like without the bactery boys. Blowing up there'LD be no instinck, because that basically yed INCINC fucking ninety degrees, O town and all these other fucking boy bands, but regardless of you, were fanning out of this music. Without this phenomenan you might not have had fucking justin temper lake good, it's it. I actually like him as an actor and stuff. I think he's he's a Goo Guy, but the NW A had a movie written about them that was released in the theaters metallica had a movie that was in the theaters where's the back street boys movie. It's coming 's, it's comingtrerthey're, fucking sold out in Vegas every single night on this cucking h stay that they have there. But yeah t t that's my pick. It's enough talk about the BACTON Boie, so ot question Te rck! You say you like Justin timperlaces an actor. Could he, though, also not be just replaced by a box of cereal in a suit in Li? No, I I! I think he has a lot of range to I totally. I love his comedy. I love his acting. Is Me a ferious guy, okay M, but yeah way more de ot? What you know what he sold me, what something dog fucking! I forget, the name of Al The movie wher Hou fucked, the dog was thernow O my Boundy Kidnappin to lunch, an loked apounere bbut. I ten. I hate you guy check off timprlake in my assle, an t remember the name of the movie, but it's it's actually a role that has you would never see, justintimmerally playing and he buck and pulls it off. I just I Jucai okay thgi, no, now no criticizing of other people's opinions or taste not at all. I just feel like you could replace him with, like any other generic white actor. Like I don'tfeel. What I mean by that is sure he could be great in some things but um I there are so many kind of like actors of his age and his look that could like equally do any of those things. That's how I feel ithe movie was Alfhadog. If you haven't seen Alphadog job, I don't think you have looking at you, you're not be looking at me. I'm very sure that you've never seen alpadog go see it 'cause. I think you'll like it. Okay, okay, I W I wouldn't do that, but, okay, all right Bo, just go all right. Last one for Music August, twenty sixth, it's been certified six times, planum one of the top two hundred selling albums of all time in the U S had spent over a hundred and fifty weeks on the catalogue album's chart and over one hundred ten weeks on the billboard two hundred H, it was a very desperate plea, looking back to keep grunge on top of the musical scene, and that is my own prison from creed. Everyone laughs at both of these picks, but they were both fucking monumental. I mean creed wit itting it back, then, for sure, creed and breaking Benjamin Ut. This kind of fuck out here a me a real partner for HIHT's sake. AIA Say I liked him. I said they mark you're, just creating your own prison yeah. I know I T my partner hated me from the beginning. I think this collusion t me before I was even on this deam. Oh Yeah, see! This is how it happend Y. I say it's collusion 'cause. I have a thing and then you turn it around and say no you're, the one who colluted Y I see how this works. I was assuming that it would at least be something like b here now by oasis or something there was no, I mean again not a band I like at all, but it was, I think, one of the Farts fastis selling records in the UK. I don't know what it did ever here, but the fast as selling record in the UK for like thirty years or something it was huge. It's disgusting when you look at some of these, but you have to say them because there's that big that you have to Ucan say like when I was looking at, I was watching videos and reading about the backshoe boys. I was literally making myself Ou know I just want. I just wanted to go to sleep or something I'm just dine to stop, but you have to do it for this. You could have gone with the best of Yanei. I mean come on there. That was the third pick yeah the th or or you could have gone for Um. What have we go? Her? Were you infore agt? You could have gone for uh saliva. By Sali ever you could have gone for sweet. Seventy five by sweet. Seventy five. You could have gone for Tet by finger eleven mm and you could have gone for a fun crusher plus by company flow. NPOPCULTS are wise. We couldn't touch any TAT hell, although you could have equally gone for some like British invasion stuff like behere now with oasis. I just find, I think, probably 'cause creed did not Um, I mean Obas. The early creed did but like creed. By this point I did not like will man i Ofer, and what could the eighties ago? What did you guys go for an Ady Yo went for n w out of continet's an obvious peck Metalica, make sense, and then metallic is fur thousand yeucents at one onogrammy yeah, the the one, the one music video, I guess, ther first one, but the pretty epic one too, from the song wr this on one. Yes, quotations on Righton Yo SA nohe ow in this world by Europe, you could have gone leprosy by death. One of my favorite abums only we wont Li groove machine by the wonder stuff. You could have gone Jane's Addiction, Noo, Oshit, my favorite, album of all time and I'm having it played at my wedding. It's two nuns and a pack mule by Rapeman, my Gosh Y. U also, God what else came out Yani again wait a minute Jannig he was knocking out. PAYINGERSMAN ateer Yani Ta was Thoe Zanis, I say Yni Lis. He plays the skin flu Arightyeah, so Yani is pose in August, eighty eighth and August. Ninety seven! So give it up for K, yeah longevity. You Could Have Gone Revolutions Joan Michall Jas you, like some French, repetitive, instrumental music. That all sounds exactly the same, so it turns like modern pop Danzin self titled Album Comes Out in August of n Hnine, undrd and eighty eight thatwas other and in Sunshine unleaf by the proclaimers 'cause. I would walk five hundred miles. Wd Bo five Billsan come on. It's Scottish genius. They talk a lit of Gibberish and would you have a wet Y can usually cavering to Yo ont now fucking. I Dad what he's saying, but it's genius and I love pair of Buddy Holly, looking fuck, I have gote to give it to someone haven't I mm hold on. Let me bend over. Oh, I I think we've bent over plenty in this episode. H, wark got fissures again. I have a difficult decision. 'cause I'd have to go cool or I have to go popular and I'm going to go cool, 'cause, fucked, the back street boys and Theain whiper on the board. I'M GOINGTA GO N W A out of COMTON and metallica winning a grammy in one housand, nine hundred and eighty eight, because I'm sorry, the Baxley Boys, new kids on the block. It Rick afteit all started a slippery slope down to fucking pituary retarded white, guys, jumping around in Baggy Sud, singing, wet dribbly, songs to fucking, prepbescent women, it's the worst fucking music, that's ever been created outside of plog dancing and that Shi should have been shut down from the day. One someone should have gone up to the Baxe boys and injected them all with Somaltahide, so put a bag over the head and set fire to them. H enough of that, I'm going to go withn, N, Wa and Metallica. I'm sorry guys were cool winds out over mindless popularity, wel Ei I kindof ought that I was Goingto, go h, sorry, reck, I've, crissed, no Goosein ther still never been a shut out on the show. So at least we avoided that. I think my tenure as judge of this show is fast running out. I think Crick and Mak are going to get together w not around to be like thgy again fucked it Noyou Kno. I totally didn't think that we were going to get a shut out on that one and, like I said that was really difficult for me, so I figured for a judge. It would be really difficult to pick something that they didn't like right, that you had to look at from an open mindset. You like man, that is a fucking, huge album, and it took me an hour of reading in to shit where it opened my mind a like wow. They fuckand did that. THAT'S INSANE! No, and I I' I'm very I'm very aware of that. To be honest, there isn't one album Um that was mentioned that I personally would own I'm aware of out of COMTI, I'm aware of the metallic rabems. My various people in my life have played them around me and stuff like that, but they're, not no. No none of the albums mentioned the ones that I liked, but I didn't go with personal taste. I kind of looked at it Nwa like once. He dropped that I think from a cultural standpoint, it's above everything else like you, look at out themselves and you look at cultural standpoint and I think that ones. That's why I didn't een bother running through all the numbers or anything with that CA. We all just watch the movie. Everybody knows the Hilaryand. The significance of this album rightyeah completely and loo. There's there's equal argument to say that thoe cultural significance and popularity to the faxtory boys- and I totally get it and- and you know there there's probably a place where, like you say, reck. If I come in with an open mind towards it, it would have been Um. You know W. It's awesome, though John, like this, and it's something that y you will never fuckang see ever again, you're, never going to have another conversation where you're comparing the backreebos to nd Wa, except on deeling decades, but in this game somebody's got a win and on this fucking episode it was the nineties, and you know what there's no participation o trophies in this game, because, like Vinclin Bardy said, if winning isn't everything, why do you keep score and the score's five te two we Wen des Aint, first or last, Aright Soll, continue playing the game online play along at home. Did John Cross get it right? Did the nineties deserve this win, or maybe the eighties? No, no fuck it we sucked Anywa and also it doesn't matter what other people think. I got it right. I ave to j, you guys, you guys dug this grave and now you're all lying in it. I'm sorry you you ask me to keep coming back. I Keep Alo you thanks. Let's give around of herplause TAT Johny Cross eanoping. Now noloudelet me just throw this out there. Before you close out. We have the new facebook dueling decades, facebook, dotcom FRC lash doing decades, and the Shit's blowing up. It's only been around for a month, STU over five hundred lakes fucking popping up every day. What will do with this episode? We have th. This is the final verdict. John has given us the final verdict of this, the nineties or fucking champions to this one. But if you don't agree with it, we'reg we'll put the pole on that baseball page go ahead and just whatever you want to do. If you think it's eighty, you tinkits nineties, you make the call am I allowed to vitriolically argue with anyone, who's, agastabsolutely heilutely, but cald chake somebody will, I may use strong language, you might have. I don't care, but continue the conversation online thanks fere. Turning into this episode of dueling decades here on poop culture, we'll see you next time. Fellow poopers peace, love, light and joy have a great weak everyone, infrmymedia
