The 404 Show 1,590: The flip phone returns, Street Fighter 5, Eaten Alive (podcast)
How in the world do you top what we did yesterday?
I have no freakin idea.
I mean we, we had like how many people on this show via Skype?
We had two on Skype.
We had two extra people on the show.
We can't top it.
It was a technological achievement to say the least.
That was not planned at all.
We did not plan that.
And luckily, I think, I think like Ariel had stuff in his pockets to save.
No, it was Justin.
He had stuff in his pockets.
Oh, Just, Justin had something in his pocket that actually wound up saving us.
But give it for Ariel who like, we made it all work in the last.
Second.>>Yeah, we was, we were about to have cancel it, because we were having technical difficulties.
And all of a sudden, everything worked.>>Yeah.>>Yeah.>>The power went out in here.>>Yeah.>>So, like none of the lights were working.
The TV wasn't working.
We were F'd hard.>>Mm-hm.>>But then we got un F'd.>>Some kinda miracle happened.>>By yeah, by some sort of divine intervention.
The podcast gods let us do our thing.
That's why I'm a religious man.
I'm sure somebody like unplugged like a washer and dryer that was hooked up to the same breaker to this thing.
No, just the building engineers like flipped the breaker.
Yeah, I was wondering, 15 amps for a studio?
Yeah, no, it's not, we're not gonna get into the technical stuff like that.
[LAUGH] Not a good idea.
But, I main, I just wanna like let everybody know how close we were to not doing it yesterday.
Speakin' of yesterday, holy moly, go back and watch it.
I, it sounds like people really were, were happy.
Right, everyone's in a celebratory mood.
It was the most viewed Facebook story we ever did.
It got 14,000 Facebook views.
Yeah, I saw that blowin' up, that was freakin' awesome.
It was a huge episode.
It was, it was awesome bein' part of that.
It was huge.
Yeah, so we got nothin' today.
No, today, today, we have the meat sweeps.
[LAUGH] Meat sweeps.
Define meat sweep.
Today, we have the meat sweeps.
[LAUGH] That's a perfect sound effect.
So, what, we're going back, to Monday or last week, I'm like.
yes, guess the, guess the, the contest sponsor.
Guess the contest partner.
And who did you guess?
You were right.
That is complete ****.
And so, yesterday, so I was thinking about this.
When you asked me this question, it was like Ghostbusters.
I'm like, what is.
What is like the one thing that we would never, ever have?
Like this, this is a thing that I'm like, I used to watch QVC a lot when I was a kid, and they'd have meats for sale.
Through the mail and I'm like, you're kidding me.
That's impossible, how does that work?
Never had a steak through the mail, so I'm like sure Omaha Steaks.
Cuz that's crazy.
It's not crazy.
Have you ever had Omaha Steaks by the way?
No, I haven't.
It's, I had them in college.
Just because you get meat in the mail, and it feels like you shouldn't get meat in the mail.
But getting it in the mail is great.
Yeah, that sounds like part of the appeal.
Well, yeah, that's the appeal.
The countdown is gonna start next week, so stay tuned to our Twitter feed and the show.
You're serious, right?
I'm not joking.
We're giving away two mega, like, prizes, like mega giveaways.
I'm not, you think I'm joking.
Well 'cause it's, the thing I picked was ridiculous.
And you've, you've somehow managed to make that a reality.
I'm sure you, I'm sure we had something else lined up like a whole brand new like Ferrari for somebody, like you know what I'm gonna do.
This prank is going to far I think, Backalar.
It's not, it's real.
You should freaking tell me the truth already.
We're giving away, it's called the tasteful gift.
I'm not joking.
It's tasty, fusion, they're.
I'm not going to get into the specific details but got filets, sirloins, burgers, baked potatoes and freakin molten lava cake.
When does this thing last?
You can't win
I know I can't win.
I know with all.
Things that I want to have in the world.
It's gonna start next week, and we're gonna do a cool sort of different way to give it away.
We're gonna do a caption contest.
So all that will be made available next week.
So tune in to the show next week, and the contest is only gonna last a week.
And you'll have a chance to win.
It's going to be a lot of fun.
We've never done a caption contest before, I don't know why, but we're going to start next week with [UNKNOWN].
Let's get into the show, ladies and gentlemen.
It's Friday, December 5th, 2014.
I'm a medium rare guy, how do you like yours cooked?
I mean, no, I liked medium rare until I actually got medium rare done right.
And I was like, oh, what is this?
They were like, this is medium rare.
I'm like this is what I like, it should always be, this is the way it should be.
This is the future of steak.
Medium rare, as well.
Because one you, man I got friends who do like.
Well and I'm just like, what's wrong with you.
I grew up on well done.
My folks would always order our steaks well done and I got one that was slightly underdone.
What are you, a pregnant lady?
Not that I knew of.
I only know that now for personal reasons.
Yeah, as you are pregnant yourself.
As I am pregnant.
You're a wind child right now.
Yeah, they accidentally undercooked it and I'm like, this is awesome.
My mom's like, put that down.
I'm like, no, no, no, no, I'm gonna get this.
This is medium.
Then I went down.
I, I have a friend who.
It was clearly unstable and gets black and blue.
You know what that is?
Is that like charred on the outside and just frozen on the inside?
No, it's like two minutes on each side, serve it up.
That's kind of what I just said.
No, but it's like gross.
It's, I don't think it's charred at all, cuz two minutes [CROSSTALK] isn't enough time.
Two minutes, on the outside, you got that black and blue.
Cold, very cold on in the inside.
Does not sound appealing.
You know when you watch like cartoons and they would give a lion a piece of meat and it was just a slab of red with white in the middle.
That's like what you're eating.
You know what I'm talking about?
I know exactly what you're talking about.
The little slab of meat.
It's like a toy treat for dogs.
It's in the shape of a heart a little bit.
Yes, [LAUGH] so true.
So that's, that's how he eats.
We'll get more into the meat sweeps.
I will say meat sweeps-
forever, next week when we start that.
So real quick what I wanted to do, I wanted to show off something I got in the mail today that I'm very excited about.
These are not steaks.
These are not steaks, you cannot eat them.
They come from a company called Evil Controllers.
You can buy these.
I believe in Best Buy, but I had these guys reached out, and I had them make some custom Xbox One and Playstation Four controllers.
Look at that.
So we designed this online.
You're not doing that justice, the colors like, it's blinding.
The colors like, it's like ,.
It's like hunting vest orange.
Yeah, you're not going to get shot if you are playing in that, with that.
But how tight is that?
Now this is the Xbox One version and you can customize every last possible doodad.
I customized the bumpers.
Even the LED light in the middle here, I think it goes orange.
Custom analogs sticks.
Custom back, look at.
Come on, play around with that and don't tell me it's ,. This is really nice looking.
The coolest thing you've ever seen, right?
I like the silver, on the-
So you, you can check them out, Evil Controllers is the company name.
I'm gonna also post a little write-up and a gallery.
Now here's the, the green Playstation 4 controller.
But wait, it gets cooler.
I don't know if you can see this, can you make out on the back what that says there?
It says my name on it.
I have reached a new level of nerdness.
[LAUGH] That's great.
I have ascended to the top level.
In case you have like a marathon session and you forget who you are, you're like, yes.
I'm like oh my God, okay, this is me.
How cool is that though?
That is pretty cool.
Feel it, it's a little heavier than normal, but it's nice, right, it has a nice weight.
Yeah it does feel a little heavy.
Yeah, but this is.
These are ridiculous.
They're a little expensive but I think if you're a hardcore gamer.
Only the best.
Maybe you want to treat yourself to something nice this holiday season.
Treat yo self.
And I don't know, I'm trying to, maybe we can, like, work out a code with these guys or something to give away?
That would be lovely.
What'd you name this sweeps?
I don't know.
That wouldn't be a sweeps thing.
I'm done with the sweeps for now.
Too many lawyers.
We will leave them here to show for the rest of the program.
Okay, let's get into some of the news of the day.
My father would love this first story, because it's all about how the humble flip phone is making a return.
Yeah, I overheard this this morning at the office.
Somebody was talking about this.
Like, oh, apparently flip phones are back and I had no freaking idea because that's been over forever.
Not with my dad.
Well, Sweet Lou is gonna enjoy this.
It was crazy.
There's been like a, this, this bunch of celebrities who have been seen with.
These flip phones, including Vogue's Editor and Chief Anna Wintour.
Like it's a drug dealers.
Actress Kate Bekensail, Rihanna.
The only reason why you need a burner like that.
They all have these phones now, apparently they're this is a throw back for some reason.
There's no actual reason, no one's ever actually interviewed to say hey.
Why are you using these freaking phones?
Right, they're just popping cuz there in Vogue.
I get it, I understand what's happening here, I don't think they're gonna come back though.
I think, I mean, the who, the someone from Vogue, who else?
Yeah, Rihanna, she's a singer.
The only thing I can think of with Rihanna is like, she just needed like a one way, sort of throw away phone with like her manager.
That was a new number.
You know, I mean think about it, a lot of security issues with phones lately, not there's being, there's any photos taken on that thing.
Yeah, that was something that somebody over at Network World was, was guessing, guessing, he was the Fappening, this is about the Fappening.
But if you had these burner phones, you're taking photos, you're doing whatever you want with them, throw them out, because linking your phone number, and celebrity, and all this other stuff.
At the same time to figure it out, will take way too long, versus having a dedicated iPhone to use all the time, or whatever.
But it just seems like, there's no freakin' way this stuff's coming back.
It's not always coming back, but I do sort of, you know, have a soft spot for a flip phone in my heart.
Like, there's nothing more satisfying than just like, closing it after a call.
You're like okay.
Why don't you get a case for your phone that does that then.
Get out of here.
You can freaking do that.
Back me up.
Nice little like click.
You know what I mean?
I'm done with flip phones man.
I like my smart phone.
I had I had Motorola I90 that was fun.
Oh my God look that up.
Note a little I90.
I had a, look up the Time Port, remember that phone?
I remember the Time Port.
I had, I had one that wasn't a flip that was just, what the hell do you call it, like a little joystick in the middle of it.
Let me see this, we have a picture.
I have the Timeport up now, I get one of these, you identify your phone?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I think my dad had the one on the left, the top left.
Uh-huh, this one?
Which one's the Timeport?
That's the Timeport.
But also those little two way pagers are Timeports too, I had one of those.
Oh, so time support was more of a, a brand.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.
It was a line.
And then we have Ariel's I90 [CROSSTALK] Trip one, the are you there or where you at?
Yeah, I had one.
This is a chirper.
I had the I90.
This is my phone before my razor.
I had a razor phone after this.
I had that before I had my sidekick and I had to [UNKNOWN] my sidekick out of iPhone.
I rocked the sidekick for a while too.
And then I decided to.
I wanted to live.
Heh-heh, time to grow up.
Man, I had the first Sidekick with the black and white.
Oh, what a piece of **** that was, right?
I went through, I went through probably eight Sidekicks, because they kept breaking on me.
What the hell was wrong with the build quality of those things?
Yeah, it was so bad.
yeah, that, that brings me back.
It's so funny now that I think about it, you know, cuz I make fun of my dad a lot because he's just this Luddite, but he was the first guy I knew with a cellphone.
And he had a phone, and I was like, oh, man, he's so badass with his phone.
And then he like kept it for 20 years.
[LAUGH] And never upgraded.
Well it's not like it broke.
I mean, these things kept working.
Dude, he is rocking a Samsung, I **** you not, it's gotta be from like '05.
I'm not even joking dude.
And he's just now, just now he's starting to like, say hey.
Maybe I'll get, maybe I'll get an iPhone.
What does he want to use his phone for?
My mom had a flip-phone, which we slowly got her to go to the iPhone.
He does, he doesn't.
And that's all that matters.
If he does.
It's not like he's paying less money, because they've already got him for like the, the premium price, so he's not gonna save any money.
It's just this, this is what it is, and that's all, that's all I can say about that.
You know, it's odd, you were talking about the satisfaction of clicking the phone shut.
Yeah, that is nice though, I miss that.
So did this, I was looking at this, when I was looking at this store this morning at the Guardian this person had the same idea right here.
Saying a flip phone made me.
Erroneously feel important in a way that a non-flip cannot.
There was nothing more satisfying than the snap of the lid.
It's so true, because especially answering it, you just hold it and be like [LAUGH] gotta take this one.
Flip it up with your thumb.
Jeff here, talk to me.
The Jesse from Full House answer.
Talk to me.
Wow, pulling out a really old reference there.
I'm just thinking like, every time they upgrade the OS, I'm like, okay, which button am I supposed to push?
The green one, okay, the green one is good.
Okay, now, is it on?
You feel like a goofy bastard with touchscreens.
I still do.
I had a visor phone.
That was my.
First freaking phone.
That was a PDA that had a spring board that turned it into a phone.
Nobody understood why the hell I was carrying this giant thing.
Oh, you must have looked like such a moron.
Yes, I did.
I did, because I didn't make phone calls.
I didn't need the damn thing for that.
I used it for like, data.
Yeah, that, but you know what?
It's the same reason, you know, Jack's tailor has a burner.
That's, you know, illegal activity.
You think that's what's going on?
Rihanna, Rihanna's clearly a drug dealer.
You're saying the Vogue editor in chief, right here seen on her flip phone.
You're saying that she is running guns, too.
Running guns to the Irish.
I thought the Irish were all, weren't they killed already in the sixth season?
Something like that.
[LAUGH] I forget who's being.
I'm kidding their not criminals these people.
Just trying to protect themselves.
Speaking of criminal activity though there is a new pizza from Pizza Hut, I'm sorry from Dominos that might as well put people in jail.
Yeah it's a doritos crusted.
So if you're looking at this monstrosity, this is
This is exactly what it sounds like, and if you can't, if you listen to the audio version and you're like, well what would it look like?
Just crumble up a bunch of Doritos, and kind of like sprinkle it on the crust.
That's the pizza you got there, and there's cheese stuffed in the actually pie.
I couldn't eat this.
You don't think so?
I. I. I just don't think I could stomach it.
First of all, I think Doritos are the most overrated thing known to man.
They're just, they're just.
The most overrated thing.
Overrated snack food.
That narrows it down.
Like overrated thing.
That's pretty broad, okay.
Like paper clips are pretty overrated.
[LAUGH] Yeah, but they're still around and they're important.
Yes, and they're not on pizza.
I mean, I just, I don't like Doritos.
And no one's figured out how to not make a mess of yourself eating that.
I mean this clearly won't be messy, I mean look at this.
No, it will be.
No, not at all.
Because you, you always grab pizza and fold it like slice, like you're supposed to.
A Domino's pizza?
No a Domino's slice of pizza is about what, the size of like what, a trading card.
I don't know.
I couldn't tell you, I've never had it.
You've never had a Domino's pizza?
No, I, it's been awhile.
[CROSSTALK] No, it's Pizza Hut Australia, you're wrong.
It is Pizza Hut Australia.
Then why does it say Domino's up here and then Pizza Hut down here?
You're confusing the word Doritos for Domino's, I think.
I think you're right.
Yeah, wonder who did.
Hey, partial deflection coming in today.
Yeah, I mean.
I don't know, I couldn't eat that.
Yeah, you're right.
Couldn't do it.
Pizza Hut, I'm sorry Domino's for saying you had anything to do with this, you sly, sly people.
What flavors of Doritos are they?
I don't know look and let's see, crunchiest things.
This is only in Australia so you can't get it here in the states.
Do you think Australia just doesn't know about pizza?
Do you think they're like this is what Americans are doing?
Lets go ask Tye.
We got a we have an Australian that's held captive here.
We got a guy.
We'll ask Pendleberry.
Moving right along.
I am a. Strangely a little hungry but not for that.
Just strangely hungry.
Just need to get that out there.
This is a amazing.
Street fighter five out of nowhere going to be a play a PlayStation 4 and a PC exclusive title.
So a trailer leaked on Internet today.
And in the video they have like it's a bit of street fighter five and there's a whole lot of other stuff is going on in this video but there's a moment where on the screen it flashes coming to PC and Playstation 4.
No mention of Xbox One.
Which is like insane because I mean if you play street fighter it's on everything.
It's even on freaking iPhone at this point so.
And then I have Street Fighter 4. I have it.
So, like, this is relatively huge.
It's not confirmed by Capcom.
Nobody's said this officially, but this trailer looks pretty official.
It looks like this stuff's gonna happen.
Does this, does this sound weird to you that Sony could land this?
no, because they seem to have already locked up an exclusive with Capcom already.
So perhaps, they are lengthening the relationship.
Maybe the deal was to have a multi IP game exclusivity deal.
Yeah, but Street Fighter makes them a crack ton of money.
Wouldn't they want that on everything?
Yeah man, I mean, look.
Tomb Raider is, the new Tomb Raider is a, a timed exclusive with XBox One.
Maybe exclusives are coming back.
I don't know.
They definitely, this is a game that you would never imagine would be, a console exclusive to one platform and not the other.
There it is, there's the actual thing.
That is very surprising.
Yeah, if this is real and it checks out, I mean, I can easily buy it, I can easily buy this.
Because I know around the office there's the, the, it's Playstation 4. Pretty much everyone has actually bought a Playstation 4. Nobody seems to be on XBox inside.
This, this past Fri, this plast, this past Black Friday was like the tipping point.
And now most of the office is PS4 people.
Right, but the thing is, look.
We had really cheap XBox Ones but there was a, no one wanted it.
Even though it was doing really well.
People were buying it.
It did have a better Black Friday but I think the deal in terms of like the pack in games was better for PS4.
This thing would actually push me over the edge.
Now it's kinda like the blu ray HDDTV war.
I'm like okay what's going to happen.
This one made it over for me.
It's Street Fighter, I gotta play Street Fighter.
Street Fighter four is pretty damn good.
All right so this is probably a 2015 or beyond game.
And, that's pretty surprising news for Street Fighter.
I'll just play in on my PC.
Street Fighter 5 PC and PS4 only.
Remember a couple weeks ago we talked about one of my favorite conversations in a while, a Discovery Channel show called Eaten Alive, where this putz got, got, got in some sort of suit.
And he got eaten by an anaconda.
Well that's what his, his dream was.
That's what his dream was.
So this is happening and it's airing.
This freaking Sunday.
On Discovery, "Eaten Alive" is gonna happen at 9:00, 8 Cen, 8 Central.
This isn't an ad for it so much as like if you want to watch this thing that was like protested.
There was, like, a thing on Change.org.
There was a whole petition.
Just shows you how much Change.org means nothing to anyone.
I don't know how many signatures it got, at all.
It doesn't matter.
Have you ever heard of anything successfully overturned?
Not overturned so much as.
I've gotten, I've seen White House responses.
I'm totally blanking on what though.
> All right.
Are you going to watch this?
Yeah you are.
No I'm not.
Yeah you're watching this.
I'd watch the 40 second YouTube you know sorta highlight reel of it.
But I'm not going to sit down Sunday the Lord resting day.
And just watch this.
I've got better things to do.
What on Earth are you gonna do instead of watch like a, what, maybe what, half an hour, maybe hour special of this guy talking about
I'm not doing that.
It's not something I want to see, really.
I want to hear if he lived or died.
I'm pretty sure you're lying.
Praying for one and not the other.
It's already happened, it's been recorded.
Already done, so if he's dead, then I'm sure the ratings would be better.
Well I can't wait for like, next month's episode, when they're like, now the anaconda will **** out [LAUGH] [UNKNOWN] live guy.
And it's just gonna be another ground-breaking event for the fine content over at Discovery Channel.
If this thing does well, what other things should this guy be swallowed by?
What else like, what, what, what is Eaten Alive, the series like, because I'm thinking about this guy.
This does really well.
It's gonna be like, there must be something else to do with this because there's, there's a market for this.
He survived being eaten by an anaconda.
Now let's see if he can survive a ride through a buzzsaw.
He like, or like, a wood chopper.
That just sounded like.
How about that?
A wood chipper?
I would love that.
It's not, it's not called a.
It's a chipper, not a chopper?
Well, yeah, cuz there's chips of wood.
What's the, oh, right.
What's the, is that the contraption that looks like a reverse snowblower?
I want him to go through [LAUGH] go through that and see what happens.
There's your show.
They're designing suits that can withstand a certain death.
A wood chipper.
So they just keep, that's the ultimate episode, I would imagine.
Let's see if we can saw this guy in half and put him back together.
Not eaten alive, he'd be like.
He's not livin', he's not livin' dangerously enough for me.
Just goin' through an anaconda-
I don't know, I mean, he was dreaming of being eaten by an animal.
You got any other living things that should be swallowing this man whole?
Can he fist fight successfully a tiger?
Can he survive going through a tiger.
There's an idea.
What about a whale?
Gotta get eaten by a whale-
Clearly we were kidding with the examples we did, but a whale is way more practical.
So, and there's a lot more variety.
You got killer, you got blue, you got sperm.
No, the big one.
That's the sperm, right?
Mm-hm, that's the giant one.
[LAUGH] Sperm are very small, in fact, microscopic.
There you go.
Sperm whale, largest known mammal on earth.
Beard stroking right here.
That's why we all have these.
For the moments like this.
Hm, hm, [UNKNOWN] well **** I'm not sure.
So yeah, we got sperm whales next.
Yeah all right so have them get in there and document it.
I don't know why, but TV shows and entertainment has taught me that you can like, live inside of a whale for awhile.
Yeah, you could just have a campsite-
With a raft, and like a little tent.
So you got that.
So then, they also need to do like a spin-off with like little people, cuz they can fit into other things, right?
You could have-
I can't, I can't endorse that.
[LAUGH] You can have little people-
I can't endorse that.
Being eaten alive by smaller, large animals.
Like a shark.
Or, or, or people.
Or like, Kim.com.
I don't know.
[UNKNOWN] Bigger people.
[LAUGH] It's like, I'm going to live inside the mouth.
I would watch that.
Little people eaten by bigger people.
It would be like a live, streaming of a, what it would be the closest thing we have to like, live, streaming pregnancy.
That's kind, yeah, there you go.
Kind of amazing.
I think everything in your mind is going back to that.
I kind of think this is the type of.
Acquisitional program direction talent that the Discovery Channel is currently in seek of.
So they, they've just hired a fetus.
So this has decided to live inside this woman for eight or nine months.
Right, and then they're like, we can't give our fetuses too, too many legalities, what about.
This little person.
Okay, are they gonna, are they, are they in like a discovery fluid, is that what they're like bounce, like floating around in?
They, they, my plan is to reenact every stage, every trimester.
You got a great finale there.
Coming up right there, it actually writes itself.
I can't wait for the confessionals, that's the thing I want to see.
Because it's always green, it's all like infra-red.
You're just looking at a camera, and you're just kind of floating like this, cuz, you know, it's got the goop everywhere.
And you just see the lower third come by, like, inside.
There is no Hell, but if there was, we are going it.
This is just talk.
Not like we're actually developing this.
Please don't develop this, anybody.
I feel like we've dev, I feel like Discovery, perhaps.
Developed something similar way more thoroughly than we just did, is what I think.
Okay I still think little people, big people.
You can't have a show where like, you're talking about an obese person eating a small person.
Look, living inside of someone is different than eating them.
Yeah could be placed inside.
It's like a [UNKNOWN] thing you just gotta sew them back up.
No it's easy they do that kind of stuff all the time.
[LAUGH] All right, holy moley we gotta move on.
I want to get to a video voice mail, another one.
See someone sent one in and we gotta do another one.
Filmed a video voicemail using a custom-made drone.
Ayez, tell me about this.
[CROSSTALK] I'm not gonna tell you anything.
Blair's gonna tell you.
I'm gonna hit play and let's go.
For a video made from a quadcopter, unfortunately it's just a little too dark out right now to get some good footage, but hopefully you guys like this.
Look at this guy.
[CROSSTALK] I'm filming from a custom-made quadcopter that I built at school.
That's holding it's place with GPS.
Keep up the good work guys and I hope to see you when you break the next record.
I'm gonna set it up for a look around.
There he goes, oh wow.
This is crazy, this guy built his own drone.
On him to the GPS, but then that little light was on his microphone.
Oh so the, okay so, so the drone was staying in place just through a GPS signal.
Right, because he built this thing, and now we're seeing a, where ever he was.
So how does that, but how does that tell it where to, to stay?
Well it might have an optical kind of, recognition as well.
Look at that view man.
Kind of like the Playstation, Playstation Move used to work, with the little glowing ball.
Right, right, right.
That's somethin' else.
And the camera stabilization's pretty damn good.
So basically he's topped every video voicemail ever.
So the last thing we had was like we got the awesome 404 piece of art.
And now we've got, a drone.
The other thing is, he didn't just buy a drone, he built it.
[LAUGH] That's kick-ass.
Someone else is gonna have to build, like, something way cooler, and fly that around.
Inside of something.
Yeah, and swallow it, and then broadcast live from it.
The first voice mail from inside a person.
No, no, don't do that either.
Now that I've said it out loud, that sounds way worse than I meant it to sound.
Let's just take that one back.
Maybe you sit the next couple of plays out for this one.
Alright, I'm just gonna, why don't you, got some emails or anything?
Yeah, we got emails.
These are from, yesterday and the day before, people wanting to chime in about 1589.
Thanks to everyone again, who reached out to us and participated in yesterday's show.
It was very touching, very humbling, way more ego-stroking than we're certainly used to, right?
I get that all the time.
[LAUGH] What do you think happens over there?
I know, Mary Ellen from Ireland wrote in and said, I was just listening to 1589 more to say thanks for all the laughs over the years.
I started listening in early' 09 and I was 18 at the time completing secondary school.
You guys have been with me through all that.
I listened every morning on my way to school and you have been with me on many car journeys.
I now listen to the show when I'm cleaning my place which I got last year.
Congrats Mary Ellen invite us over.
Hopefully you'll be, I'll be listening to The 404 when I head to college at the age of 24.
You, Wilson, Justin, Ariel, and now, of course [UNKNOWN] have made a different, made my different journeys throughout the last few years that much more fun, and I have often had to pull the car over cuz it wasn't safe to drive anymore, because I had been laughing too hard.
That is so touching Mary Allen.
That's really nice.
Thank you so much, it's been great.
And I look forward to, checking out many more episodes of the show.
Who else wrote in, we have Paul.
Paul says I'm sitting here watching your video podcast, congrats, and I hear that this part, the video part of the 404 is coming to an end.
As I prefer my video instead of audio I miss you guys and the guests you have, Ann, Jill, Bridget, Carrie, and others.
Those people will still be around.
You just won't able, won't be able to I guess, stare at us.
I mean, they can come into the studio and try it, but it's gonna be a little weird.
Probably work something out.
Sit right there.
Good luck and I hope you guys do another 1589 episodes.
That simply won't happen, but thank you for the well wishes.
And, congratulations with the baby.
Thank you to everyone reaching out separately.
Congratulating me and Stacy on the to be birthing of our child.
Have any contests like picking the name?
[UNKNOWN] back off.
That's the best name ever.
To get [UNKNOWN] on roll call.
I think this baby, this baby boy, which we just found out that it will be a boy.
I want to crowdsource the name of this child.
Like, are people getting to choose, like, is everyone picking like the first letter and then...
If you've got a good, no.
I don't care.
The letters, you know, it's fine.
If you have a name, I wanna hear it., 'cause like, you know, we have, we have maybe a dozen in mind.
From Mordecai all the way to Bojangles.
[LAUGH] Ariel's like, he heard that, he's like, nice.
[UNKNOWN] that doesn't have to do with anything, other than your baby thing.
You know, kind of important.
I saw this on DailyDot, that tons of babies are being named after characters from Frozen and Game of Thrones.
Where you gonna go with that?
We're frequent visitors, yeah, we're gonna name it Olaf.
No we're frequently visitors of this.
There's Olaf Bakalar right there.
There he is.
[LAUGH] And he's just as pale as we expect him to be.
[LAUGH] Get out of the sun.
yeah, no, I get this, a lot of people are naming their kids, like.
You know, Archer?
That's like a, a hugely popular name now.
Yeah, that's gonna work well.
Why not, I mean, I won't.
We're not gonna name the kid Archer, but you, I appreciate it's popularity in a way.
Although, you're just naming your kid after a cartoon.
That's a prestigious take on astronauts.
Yeah, see the problem is, that I picked a guy who's alive, who's been doing some crazy **** in the past couple of years.
So I should have really waited till he died.
Until his legacy is cemented?
Yeah, cuz like, cuz they like.
Okay, I named
That's all just like doing really wacky stuff now.
I named the kid.
He punches out somebody who says the moon landing was fake.
That's badass and awesome.
[LAUGH] No, that's totally cool.
Then he did Dancing with the Stars, and I was like Then he said some controversial stuff about global warming, I'm like wait.
I read it.
Okay, not so crazy.
Alright, so yeah.
Definitely, wait till somebody's dead so you, and chose right.
Make sure somebody's dead before you name anything after them, even a dog.
I think I want to name.
The kid context because I feel like that's the one thing we're losing and I want everyone to be reminded.
Context to context.
That is like throughout my last three years of this company and just living on the internet, context is something that has completely evaporated from the conversation.
[CROSSTALK] Don't worry.
I want that, don't worry.
I want there to be context to the listeners.
So anything he says, you'll be like, that's out of context.
That's out of context.
That's out of context.
I so, so now I'm getting like the mean scent to me.
And have you seen this one where it's like if you're having a boy.
Name him Gotham.
Yes, I saw that.
I freaking loved it.
Because in the middle of the night, if you, if you roll over and look at your husband, after a baby is screaming and crying, and tell your husband, honey, Gotham needs you,
There's no way that, that guy is not gonna jump out of bed,
And take care of Gotham.
Because Gotham needs him.
This is the real hero.
This is totally related, I think.
Oh, I must go now.
[LAUGH] Then we have a [CROSSTALK] for it.
Our little experiment.
It, it brings together all things.
You know, he's got the, there's somebody living inside of him.
There's a baby who's going to help.
You know, maybe we, we will miss the video portion.
I'm gonna make you miss it.
I'm gonna make you guys, like what's so funny.
That's gonna do it for us today.
That's the phone number.
That is surely not going anywhere.
That will exist forever.
you, if you do send us a video voicemail, you maybe have three to five times left because that's probably...
No, they can send it to us anyway.
Yeah, you can send it to us.
We'll see it.
But that's the only people that'll see it.
It'll be, like, very personal.
We don't have a definitive date when the video shows will end but everyone if you do want to continue enjoying the show if you haven't already please subscribe now to the mp3 feed.
You can either get that through a standard RSS address which we post every day at.
Seenit.com/404, or simply subscribe in iTunes.
Very easy to do.
Whichever way you do, just make sure you're subscribing to the audio version of the show, that's the MP3 feed.
The video feed, the standard quality, HD, HQ, all of those will just eventually go dark, so.
It's up to you how you want to handle that.
If you want to have a, a little ceremony where you say a few things and you like, and you put like, your iPod in a jar and like, send it out to sea.
I can understand a ceremony like that to say goodbye.
You could set it on fire too.
Once you send it out to sea kind of like a viking hero.
So however you want to deal with it in your own personal way.
But that doesn't mean we're not going to be doing video stuff.
Ariel, Iyaz, myself.
We're all going to be doing plenty of video stuff for CNET.
Down the road.
I think that is it.
Next week we'll probably start the shows on Tuesday.
I think there's some construction that has to go down here Monday.
You're not stealing my controller!
Put that back.>> [LAUGH]
I'm on to you.>>It says Jeff on it.>>It says Jeff on the back.>>What could that mean?>>I don't know.>>Sir are you talking?>>I don't know.
So there you have it.
That's it for us this week.
Thanks again for tuning in.
This is a major week for us.
And we appreciate all of the support, now and the past and in the future.
Until next week, I'm Jeff Bakalar.
I'm Iyaz Akhtar.
I'm Ariel Nuñez.
