WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.120 --> 00:00:04.040 Hello and welcomed it down to falk before he gets started. This week we 2 00:00:04.120 --> 00:00:08.230 have an announcement from Chad. He has something to say regarding his never ending 3 00:00:08.269 --> 00:00:12.349 poetry reading that has become a regular part of the show. Chad, the 4 00:00:12.509 --> 00:00:24.100 floor is yours. It doesn't matter what I say, so long as I 5 00:00:24.140 --> 00:00:34.259 say it with inflection that makes you feel that I'll convey some inner truth or 6 00:00:34.299 --> 00:00:42.009 vast reflection. But I've said nothing so far and I can keep it up 7 00:00:42.289 --> 00:00:47.289 for as long as it takes. And it don't matter who you are. 8 00:00:47.329 --> 00:00:53.759 If I'm doing my job, then it's your resolve that breaks. There is 9 00:00:53.920 --> 00:01:00.560 something amiss. I am being insecure. In fact, I don't mean any 10 00:01:00.679 --> 00:01:07.469 of this. Still, my confession draws you near to confuse the issue. 11 00:01:07.549 --> 00:01:15.469 I refer to familiar heroes from long ago. No matter how Peter loved her, 12 00:01:15.909 --> 00:01:19.980 what made the pen refuse to grow? Suck it in, suck it 13 00:01:19.060 --> 00:01:23.939 in, suck it in for your Rentintin or Amboln. Make a desperate move, 14 00:01:23.060 --> 00:01:26.140 or else you'll win and then begin to see what you're doing to me. 15 00:01:26.340 --> 00:01:32.780 This MTV is not for free. It's so piece it's killing me so 16 00:01:33.170 --> 00:01:38.049 desperately. I speak to thee of love, sure, but also of rage 17 00:01:38.049 --> 00:01:42.209 and hate and Maine and fear of self. And I can't keep these feelings 18 00:01:42.489 --> 00:01:45.930 on the shelf. I've tried. Well, no, in fact I lied. 19 00:01:46.209 --> 00:01:49.480 Could be financial suicide, but I've got too much pride inside to hide 20 00:01:49.599 --> 00:01:53.359 or slide. I'll do as out of the side and let it ride until 21 00:01:53.400 --> 00:02:00.319 I've died, and only then shall I admide this tide of catchy little tunes 22 00:02:00.599 --> 00:02:04.230 of hip three minute did he's I want to bust all your balloons, I 23 00:02:04.349 --> 00:02:07.550 want to burn all of your cities to the ground. I've found I will 24 00:02:07.629 --> 00:02:12.949 not mess around unless I play. And Hey, I will go on all 25 00:02:13.069 --> 00:02:15.900 day here. What I say? I have a prayer to pray. That's 26 00:02:15.979 --> 00:02:21.020 really all this was. And when I'm feeling stuck and need a buck, 27 00:02:21.379 --> 00:02:28.219 I don't rely on luck, because the hook brings you back. I ain't 28 00:02:28.259 --> 00:02:50.680 telling you no lie. The Hook on that you can rely. Well, 29 00:02:50.759 --> 00:02:55.599 finally, Chad actually made some sense. Mark Your calendars. WHO, I 30 00:02:55.759 --> 00:03:00.590 guess we'll call that Baldini's contribution for the week. Lord knows we've got enough 31 00:03:00.590 --> 00:03:05.949 of him running his mouth this month. So let's head to the camp fire 32 00:03:06.110 --> 00:03:10.150 and see what George Ash has in store for us this week. Hopefully we've 33 00:03:10.229 --> 00:03:23.819 moved past the whole bell pepper situation. Oh well, hello, don't move, 34 00:03:23.900 --> 00:03:28.770 silly girl. We have a lot to talk about. You'll look surprised. 35 00:03:29.689 --> 00:03:34.569 I know I'm a surprising for a bear, but if he set back 36 00:03:34.650 --> 00:03:38.689 and relax, it will all make sense. I know you might be uncomfortable, 37 00:03:39.129 --> 00:03:43.759 but for my safety I need to make sure you won't go anywhere. 38 00:03:44.560 --> 00:03:47.479 I try to make sure the barns want too tight, but then again, 39 00:03:47.560 --> 00:03:53.560 I'm a bear and don't know my own strength. HMM. So I bet 40 00:03:53.639 --> 00:03:58.469 you are asking yourself why am I bounding at in my own house? Well, 41 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:02.430 that will be revealed to you soon. I hope that everything is just 42 00:04:02.949 --> 00:04:11.099 right, because I know how particular you are. Oh, don't try this 43 00:04:11.099 --> 00:04:15.819 escape. The more you pour, the tighter things get. If you feeling 44 00:04:15.819 --> 00:04:20.220 a little woozy, that could be the drugs in your sister. I need 45 00:04:20.339 --> 00:04:26.290 you to be relaxed. I'm not sure if I got the doors ride being 46 00:04:26.370 --> 00:04:30.689 on a bear in all, but I made sure it wouldn't kill you just 47 00:04:30.930 --> 00:04:35.569 yet. We have time. We have all the time in the world. 48 00:04:36.529 --> 00:04:43.199 Well at least I do. HMM. So let's just cut to the chase. 49 00:04:44.040 --> 00:04:47.199 You may not remember me, but I remember you. My whole family 50 00:04:47.360 --> 00:04:55.110 remembers you. Oh, I see, you do remember me. Look good. 51 00:04:55.790 --> 00:04:59.189 This is going to make things a little easier, and I know how 52 00:04:59.550 --> 00:05:04.829 easy you like things. I have questions for you. I mean it is 53 00:05:05.029 --> 00:05:09.779 going to be with toorical with the gay get in your mouth, but I 54 00:05:09.939 --> 00:05:14.500 want to see if you can see things from my point of view. I 55 00:05:14.699 --> 00:05:17.819 know we are both young and we both felt the world is ours for the 56 00:05:17.939 --> 00:05:23.930 taking. I understand the wanting to try new things and explain the world around 57 00:05:24.009 --> 00:05:30.050 you. I get it. I get it, but what gives you the 58 00:05:30.129 --> 00:05:31.810 right to think you can break into one's house and do what you did? 59 00:05:33.050 --> 00:05:36.879 It may have seemed homeless. You just wanted a bite to eat, a 60 00:05:38.240 --> 00:05:42.279 chair to sit on and, oddly, a place to sleep. What's after 61 00:05:42.360 --> 00:05:45.959 coming into your house, I thought, why would she do that? This 62 00:05:46.160 --> 00:05:49.870 house is awesome, postmodern icler. I mean you have a nice kitchen and 63 00:05:50.029 --> 00:05:56.990 living room and well, your bed is so comfy. But honestly, what 64 00:05:57.189 --> 00:06:02.670 the fuck were you doing in my house? Curiosity, singing, quaint little 65 00:06:02.750 --> 00:06:08.339 house in the woods, doors unlocked. So you you're just decided to come 66 00:06:08.420 --> 00:06:13.100 in and and what I mean most rational creatures would have been like, oh, 67 00:06:13.300 --> 00:06:15.980 warmp bridge on the table, somebody must live here. But no, 68 00:06:16.540 --> 00:06:19.689 you decided to eat all food, and not only eat our food, but 69 00:06:19.810 --> 00:06:24.810 sample each one until you're found the right one. What type of monster does 70 00:06:25.050 --> 00:06:31.449 that? And don't get me started on the chairs and the beds. You 71 00:06:31.610 --> 00:06:39.680 bloke them with very little thought to this is someone's chair, this is someone's 72 00:06:39.759 --> 00:06:45.680 bed. No, you just moved on until you were comfortable. Are you 73 00:06:45.759 --> 00:06:50.829 comfortable now, a little girl? Do I make you on comfortable? Do 74 00:06:50.949 --> 00:06:56.350 you know? My grandfather made the furniture? You destroyed my grandfather, who 75 00:06:56.470 --> 00:07:00.550 was killed and made into a rug by your people. And what did you 76 00:07:00.589 --> 00:07:05.379 do? Mindless lead, destroy something that didn't belong to you and then, 77 00:07:05.939 --> 00:07:16.290 when discovered, you just ran away. You just ran away, leaving behind 78 00:07:16.610 --> 00:07:25.490 wake of destruction. You violated or peaceful home. My mother, she went 79 00:07:25.610 --> 00:07:29.370 and saying and now wanders the woods doing God knows what to God knows who. 80 00:07:29.850 --> 00:07:32.399 She just wants to watch the world burn. My father just sits in 81 00:07:32.439 --> 00:07:35.839 the house trying to put the pieces of his life back together. I mean 82 00:07:36.120 --> 00:07:40.519 he is as the straught as those Humpty dumpty guys. He won't eat, 83 00:07:40.879 --> 00:07:45.189 he can't sleep and finds no comfort in his power. I mean, I 84 00:07:45.269 --> 00:07:48.629 can't blame him. How would you feel if your father had been killed by 85 00:07:48.709 --> 00:07:53.750 some creature and one day you return home and find the same type of creature 86 00:07:53.910 --> 00:07:57.949 in your house eating your food, breaking your shit and then running away when 87 00:07:58.110 --> 00:08:03.060 caught? He lives in fear that you will return, and that's why I 88 00:08:03.259 --> 00:08:11.139 come in, because I need to make sure you understand what you did and 89 00:08:11.459 --> 00:08:20.290 why I am here. Do you understand? Because you have left me no 90 00:08:20.370 --> 00:08:28.279 choice. I want my family back, I want my peaceful home back, 91 00:08:28.120 --> 00:08:33.440 but that's not going to happen as long if you are still alive, as 92 00:08:33.480 --> 00:08:37.200 long as you and your kind walk this earth, taking what you want, 93 00:08:37.440 --> 00:08:43.269 destroying all you touch, I will have no peace. Oh, I see 94 00:08:43.389 --> 00:08:46.110 now, you're connecting the dots. You figured out what license store for you. 95 00:08:46.190 --> 00:08:50.029 You aren't as dumb as your potty golden locks and white eyes make you 96 00:08:50.149 --> 00:08:56.740 look. I've heard that once a bear has tasted human flesh, it can't 97 00:08:56.779 --> 00:09:01.539 go without it for the rest of his life. I tried your father. 98 00:09:03.700 --> 00:09:09.250 He was too muskly and had that taste of disappointment and fear your mother was 99 00:09:09.409 --> 00:09:15.970 too lean in the fear in her met her taste gave me, but I 100 00:09:16.090 --> 00:09:22.769 have a feeling that you, you will be exactly what I am looking for. 101 00:09:24.360 --> 00:09:37.120 Laugh. Just wait, I guess, for Jordan took the week off 102 00:09:37.279 --> 00:09:41.669 this week. Maybe aerial checked out this week too, and we can just 103 00:09:41.950 --> 00:09:46.750 move on with our lives. I'm kidding, aerial checked out months ago, 104 00:09:48.149 --> 00:10:05.539 but still here we are and here we go. Once upon a time, 105 00:10:05.899 --> 00:10:11.009 in a far away land, there lived a young boy and girl and they 106 00:10:11.090 --> 00:10:15.850 were the very best of friends. One day the boy's mother asked the pair 107 00:10:16.450 --> 00:10:18.610 if they would do her a favor and fetch a pail to bring water from 108 00:10:18.610 --> 00:10:24.120 the well. The girl nodded happily, always in the sweetest of dispositions. 109 00:10:24.039 --> 00:10:28.919 The boy smiled too, but to be honest, he wasn't always in the 110 00:10:28.000 --> 00:10:33.440 sweetest of dispositions. Still, the pair set off, the little girl donning 111 00:10:33.480 --> 00:10:39.750 her bright blue cloak and the boy in his bright blue shoes. As they 112 00:10:39.789 --> 00:10:43.990 skipped along holding hands, they came upon a burbling brook, shallow but still 113 00:10:45.029 --> 00:10:48.590 a bit of a hurdle. The rocks were very slippery. I'll lead the 114 00:10:48.629 --> 00:10:52.740 way, Jack, she said to her friend as she stepped from stone to 115 00:10:52.860 --> 00:10:58.980 stone, wabbling only a little, the child fell and struck her head against 116 00:10:58.980 --> 00:11:03.179 a rock. Ouch, she cried. Sitting Upright, Oh dear, cried 117 00:11:03.220 --> 00:11:07.809 Jack. Before reaching out to help her up, she shook it off, 118 00:11:07.850 --> 00:11:11.129 uncomfortable in her half soggy clothes, but with a little laugh, she told 119 00:11:11.169 --> 00:11:15.970 Jack, if I didn't know better, I think you did that on purpose. 120 00:11:16.809 --> 00:11:20.399 You're so silly. Once more, they took each other's hands and skipped 121 00:11:20.519 --> 00:11:24.879 along the path, narrowed a bit as they headed into the woods, but 122 00:11:26.000 --> 00:11:30.559 it was straight enough and not a very long excursion. On This Day, 123 00:11:30.600 --> 00:11:33.350 however, as Jack led the way, they seemed to lose sight of the 124 00:11:33.429 --> 00:11:39.350 trail. Jack, where are we? Oh Heavens, my mistake. Why 125 00:11:39.389 --> 00:11:41.909 don't you climb up a tree and see if you can spot the path? 126 00:11:43.070 --> 00:11:48.019 The girl peered up and, putting on her bravest face, she shimmied up 127 00:11:48.059 --> 00:11:52.460 the tree. Before stepping out onto a limb. Clinging tightly to the trunk, 128 00:11:52.899 --> 00:11:56.740 she shouted Down Jack, I see it right that. But before she 129 00:11:56.820 --> 00:12:01.929 could finish, she lost her footing and fell to the forest floor, her 130 00:12:01.049 --> 00:12:05.929 back and legs cracking against branches on the way down. Luckily, though, 131 00:12:07.049 --> 00:12:11.690 she was very sore and badly bruised. Those branches had probably saved her life 132 00:12:11.730 --> 00:12:16.000 as they broke the intensity of the fall. Oh My, are you okay? 133 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:22.519 I think so. Jack, Did you? Did you jostle the tree? 134 00:12:22.720 --> 00:12:28.279 Why in the world would I do that? HMM, good point. 135 00:12:28.120 --> 00:12:31.070 Well, let's head back to the trail. We're almost to the well. 136 00:12:33.269 --> 00:12:37.509 The two joined hands and shortly thereafter left the woods back into the afternoon sunshine. 137 00:12:39.509 --> 00:12:41.669 They skipped up the hill, I'll be at gingerly on the girl's part, 138 00:12:43.149 --> 00:12:46.419 and soon were at the edge of the well. Jack, do you 139 00:12:46.620 --> 00:12:50.860 mind very much fetching the Pail of water? I'm still very sore and all 140 00:12:50.940 --> 00:12:56.179 that water will be heavy. He smiled and nodded at her, but when 141 00:12:56.220 --> 00:13:00.450 he peered into the well, a look of astonishment crossed his face. Come 142 00:13:00.570 --> 00:13:03.610 look, come, look, he cried to his companion. I think it's 143 00:13:03.610 --> 00:13:07.570 a lepre con the girl's eyes grew wide and she picked herself up from where 144 00:13:07.610 --> 00:13:13.240 she rested to peer into the well. Just as she leaned in, Jack 145 00:13:13.360 --> 00:13:16.879 pushed her into the well, although it was only a matter of seconds before 146 00:13:16.919 --> 00:13:22.919 her terrified screams ended in a sickening thwack, followed by a splash. It 147 00:13:24.039 --> 00:13:28.470 was invigorating for Jack. There was no lepre con and Jack didn't even have 148 00:13:28.549 --> 00:13:33.830 a mother, not really. The woman back at home was a complete hallucination 149 00:13:35.309 --> 00:13:39.230 brought on by the mescaline He'd put in their morning milk. The whole way 150 00:13:39.269 --> 00:13:43.179 to the well she'd been tripping balls. As for why Jack Killed Her, 151 00:13:43.220 --> 00:13:48.179 he was a ruthless psychopath. As he skipped off towards home, with his 152 00:13:48.259 --> 00:13:54.700 Pale overflowing, he began singing to himself, Jack and Jill, when up 153 00:13:54.820 --> 00:14:20.840 the hill to fetch Pale little water.
