ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Day 5 of the Daily Episode August Challenge ... John talks about the second-largest polluting industry in the world, deceny, nakedness, and previews a couple new movies. @johnemotions

Oh Hey, welcome back to Emo Dojo. It's me again, John. So I just recorded an entire episode with my mic turned up too loud. It was all distorted and that's what you get for trying to record without some headphones on dirt. So I put my headphones on and I'm recording now and I don't hear the distortion, so we should be good to go. Today I am on the road down in a place called broken bow, Oklahoma, which, if you look on a map of America, Oklahoma is about in the center and the lower right corner is broken bow down there, kind of where it meets Texas and Louisiana. So as I'm driving today, I heard a interesting fact that I wasn't really aware about, but once he said it out loud, I totally understood it and that we're he was talking about the...

...largest polluters in the world. So the largest polluter are the oil industries, but the second largest. Who Do you think the second largest polluter is? It's the fashion industry. What. Yeah, well, now that I said it, it makes sense. So takes about five thousand islands of water to create a pair of jeans and a t shirt. And if you don't want to use as much water. You can use synthetic materials like polyester and whatnot, but then that's all made from petroleum products and those things don't deteriorate for ten to twenty years. Then you combine that with the problem in the fashion industry in general. They used to have spring, summer and then fall winter, basically two seasons. Well, now they've got fifty two mincrow seasons. Every week is a new season in the fast fashion industry, in which they encourage people to buy the latest greatest trend for that week and, of course,...

...to keep things affordable. This is all garbage clothing. It's poorly made, it's made in sweatshops by, you know, virtual slaves, or I mean literal people that are basically slaves they earn so little money in the worst conditions. In fact, about eight years ago there's a factory in Bangladesh called the Rana Plaza. Apparently there's like threezero people in there. The inspectors had told them it was unsafe. The banks on the bottom floor had cleared out. Well, the factory workers upstairs were forced to work again. The fucking thing collapsed, killed like one hundred people, injured twenty four hundred plus people and never really made the mainstream news. Doesn't at that capitalist narrative, you know, got him get the new clothes of the week. Yeah, I just found that interesting. You know something, well, why do we wear clothes anyway? We have climate controlled buildings, climate controlled cars. We don't really we could like turn the temperature to whatever makes us feel good and just...

...run around naked. Like, why are we still covering ourselves up? Is that this old religious thing? And most of the people I know are like atheist or agnostic. They don't give a fuck about religion, yet they still wear clothes. Let's all start running around naked. Why not? Well, and that also kind of says segues into the issue I have about antimask people who are say they're being forced to wear masks. Well, they're also being forced to wear pants. I talked about this the other day. We'll talk about a lot because it drives me crazy, the hypocrisy. Why do we wear pants? We don't need to wear pants. Oh, it's against lot of running around naked. Why is it against the latter run around naked? Because it's some old Christian values? Will fuck all that, you know, if that's the only reason, then there is no reason why we should wear pants. So why don't you, you know, rage against that machine and run around naked? Just go around naked. You would save the planet, you know, you do eliminate some global warming. You proved to the man that you're not going to kneel down to his pants laws. That would be...

...really brave of you and it would be in line with your I'm not wearing a mask stance. So you could be like, I'm not wearing a mask, I'm not wearing pants, I'm not wearing a hat or shoes. You fucking ridiculous people in the masks, no masks whatever. What's just get a mass put a mask on, Dude. Put a mask on your penis and your pants over your head. That's a good look. Put Up fucking face mask on your crotch and some pants on your head. That's about what I think of those folks, anyway. That kind of ridiculousness. Have you guys heard the new Metallica Song? Not a new song, it's old Metallica Song, Redone for the jungle cruise movie. Check it out. Pretty good, pretty epic. If you've heard metallica play with the symphony before, then you kind of get the idea they could do nothing else matters for the rocks new movie. Oh and hey, as I mentioned it, look what fucking comes on the air. Is like nonstop commercials for this thing. Looks pretty good.

I heard it's a bust, though. That's too bad. You can't make every ride into a movie. Just promote the new ride seems a little transparent to me. Speaking of music and movies, you know that Dude Pete Davidson from SNL Saturday that live? Well, he is going to play the role of Joey Ramone in upcoming movie about the life of Joey Ramone. So that could come out cool. Is kind of got that droopy long face and apparently he's taking the roll pretty seriously and he's a you know, working on his acting chops and doing a lot of research on Joey himself. So, you know, fingers crossed. I hope that turns out. A lot of times I see previews for things that I'm like, but I'll go with that. Also, the new ghostbusters trailer. I'm down with that idea. It's actually a sequel takes place. It's the grand kids of the original ghostbusters, kind of like a Jumanji story where apparently the ghostbusters, the original ghostbusters,...

...hit all their gear in the basement of an old house and, as this story goes, the grandkids, you know, because of the economy, they got to move out of their normal place and move out to the country and the old house that they got willed to them in a will and when they get there they find the gear and of course they open it up and all hell breaks loose. So it looks like a lot of fun, a lot of good special effects. You see the stay puff marshmallow man again, men, I should say. They're small and there's lots of them and just, you know, a bunch of good stuff. So that looks good too. I'll check that out and I'm really curious. I don't know if you guys catch over the Air TV anymore, like network TV. A lot of places I've lived in the past were kind of hilly and didn't get good recet option, but when I moved to the flat parts of America, Antenna TV is still a big thing, like because they got digital antenna. So you get pure clear signal of free television, like you don't have to pay for you buy your TV, you plug it into power and Bam you got all these channels and if you got the Internet hooked up to the TV, got even...

...more channels. So it's pretty cool. So I'm always looking at interesting things. But I saw a commercial for the wonder years, remember the one two years Kevin Arnold all that. Well, that's being redone with black people and Don cheetle is the narrator, voiceover guy. So that should be interesting. I'm looking forward to see and how that goes, seeing if they is it like a completely different story or they go on like episode by episode, same script, same script, kind of like they when they did the office, when they change the office from the English version to the American version, each scene is almost identical. So I'm curious if they do that with wonder years or just write their own new dialog. Should be cool. I'll give it a shot. And I don't know what the fuck happened to Lego masters. I mean Shit, it's been like three weeks since they had a new episode. Hello, we don't have that much patience. So of course Fox right,...

...get on at bucks. You can't do news worth the shit and you can't seem to put a consistent Sitcom up each Tuesday. On a regular basis. Whatever. It's all I got really. You know, try to this August daily episode podcast challenge, and this counts for today, especially since I'm on the road. I'm working, stayed up late working, I'm in a hotel room, and I think this should count, since I'm doing a show each day this month. And you want to say something, you can call me leave a message at four hundred five, four oh three and thirty three hundred. You can email me John at Emo DOJOCOM and I'm on twitter at John Emotions. So hit me up, let me know how you're doing. If you want to promote a project or just chat, I'm happy to do...

...that. If you want to link and you want to like recording official podcast with me, I'll give you a link in a time to show up. You can even podcast together right on or I don't have a great afternoon and back to the wall. And now back to the wall.
