What's up, everybody? Welcome to the Spider Bites podcast. I am one of your host, Spider, and I'm joined today with Ashley. How's it going, Ashley?

spk_1:   0:15
It's going. It's going Good time.

spk_0:   0:20
Good Tuesday.

spk_1:   0:22
Yeah,

spk_0:   0:23
that's good. Very, very, very good.

spk_1:   0:27
How's your? I don't know. I want to say weak, but with a little early.

spk_0:   0:30
I know. Um I mean, I guess between last week and this week,

spk_1:   0:35
I mean, things have

spk_0:   0:36
been pretty good. No complaints.

spk_1:   0:40
We have spring break, spring break. Spring

spk_0:   0:42
break is a spring bake. What do you bacon?

spk_1:   0:48
I don't think I've ever messed up that bad when we recorded before.

spk_0:   0:51
Wow. First time for everything.

spk_1:   0:54
Yeah. Well, anyway, three breaks Next.

spk_0:   0:58
Any plans for your spring break?

spk_1:   1:00
No, no. I'll be here. Rami

spk_0:   1:06
a staycation. Is Justus good as anything else?

spk_1:   1:11
Yeah, Um I don't know. Maybe I'll go to my friend's house or should come over here or something at least once or twice through the week since I'll be home all week. Yeah, but nothing's set in stone.

spk_0:   1:28
That sounds like fun.

spk_1:   1:30
The

spk_0:   1:31
I don't get a spring break, so I don't have any team to look forward to.

spk_1:   1:40
Well, it's nice because you don't have to go to work, But it's not so nice because you don't get paid because you're not going to work.

spk_0:   1:47
Yeah. Up and down ups and downs, ups and downs you don't get, like, paid hot. Well, I guess that's not

spk_1:   1:54
You know me. I

spk_0:   1:55
like what I would consider it. A holiday. So you don't get paid holidays?

spk_1:   2:00
The teachers probably do, but I'm not a teacher. Oh, I'm just the I'm only part time, and I'm I don't know what my official job position is, but I basically just do the daycare, which is mostly after school anyway. So Okay, I don't any time that we don't have school, I don't get paid. Which sucks.

spk_0:   2:29
I feel your pain, my friend.

spk_1:   2:33
Yeah. Oh,

spk_0:   2:34
uh ah. Till all of our new listeners, I like to do this. Ah, if anybody just joins us on a random episode, so I want to kind of give you a little background with spider by spot guesses about actually, and I we get together once a week and we bring topics to each other stuff that we've been thinking about or a question that we want opposed to each other, and we kind of just, um, talk about it. Discuss it. Have a conversation session, if you will conversation. I don't know. The words just come out, man. And it's just it is what it is. But let me sit down and have a conversation with deal.

spk_1:   3:20
You say that, like, five times.

spk_0:   3:21
I can't. It's too many SS is. But I would like to start off our conversation session. You see it? It's a T I going into the S with the SS. Ai is too much conversation session there, Diego. But I was thinking about, um, the Internet now, the past couple of days. So, you know, a tic tac is right. Yeah. So you been going a little bit crazy with tic tac lately? Uh, if you don't know what Tic Tac isn't, I have no idea why You wouldn't know what tuck is. Tic tac kind of took the place of vine, which was a a short video sharing service. I guess you want to call it like a social media type thing. Ah, basically, vines. Whole shtick was that you had six second window to make a video, and people just got incredibly creative, and they just with editing and all different kind of filters and overlays and all kind of stuff And people just started. Oh, well, won't necessarily making a career out of fine, but I think some people did kind of make curry out of I go. They were, like, vine famous.

spk_1:   4:55
Yeah, like, yeah, people started, like, picking him up and be like, Hey, you're creative. Come work for us. And they're like, OK, right. Worked out.

spk_0:   5:04
Yeah. So once. Fine. And got bought out by whoever. I think it was like Facebook or something or somebody else. But I already got bought out by find Ended up going away. And so, with the absence of vine, of course, they needed another, uh, short time video sharing service to kind of pick up the flak and tic tac, I think started out as music. Hell, why are musically ah ha today? Said it. And I think they kind of, like evolved into tic tac. Uh, it is basically cut. How do you explain tick tock? I didn't even e think about that before I started this, but, um, at least what I can tell is tell you is the thing that you can do on tick tie. There's sort of like a lie. Bare library library cannot talk today. For some reason, I think I've been talking too much at work, and my tongue is just tired. But there is a ah library off audio clips in tic tac. And one thing you can do is you can lip synch to the audio clip. Ah, and then you can do whatever they say that you want to do while you're recording and you lip sync until audio clip so you could make something funny. You can make it dramatic. There's different kinds of filters and lenses and overlays and transitions and just all this other kind off like Excuse me, fancy editing stuff to make your video look impressive. So the only reason I even downloaded the tic tac app is because I saw Funhouse said that they were starting a tic tac channel, and I mean, they barely even post to it anymore. Like talking about it. I think that achievement hunter has been posting their tic tac more than fun. House has been

spk_1:   7:00
I don't know what team I had one.

spk_0:   7:02
Yeah, mostly what they've been doing is like, um, putting up. You know, they have the mess camera in their office to do, like so it's always filming, and most Sunday, I'll just put up like Nets footage like I want to say either to dare Yesterday they just put up some footage of Trevor, Alfredo and Gavin just dancing in office. But, um, yeah, so that was the only reason that I got a tic tac account and I was like, just on it one day and just scrolling through videos and everything and I was like, This just looks fun, you know? And I was like, This'll I couldn't do this. It doesn't seem that hard. And so I started with a couple of videos and just kind of like trying my hand at it. And I mean, it's it really wasn't that hard to pick up on, and I just kind of started, like finding more, more stuff that I found funny. And another feature, Tic Tac, is that you can do it with someone. So if they air, if the audio clip is like a conversation between two people and one person is having one side of the conversation, you can do it with them and perform the other side of the conversation. Kind of come together in, like, a lip lip sync collaboration type thing. And so I started doing that, and it's just I started thinking of funnier things to do when I, um when I do dio duets and everything. But what it got me thinking about is he Internet has come a long way. Like if you think about what the Internet was like when you first started using Internet toe what it is now, that growing is like who like Been a while? Yes, like how

spk_1:   9:02
longer for you?

spk_0:   9:03
Exactly How old were you when you when you like your earliest memories of the Internet like, how do you think you were,

spk_1:   9:11
um, some time before the age of eight? Because I know I used it when we still lived at my grandma's house, and we moved out of there when I was eight. So sometime before that, um, I know my mom used to get on it or used to get on the computer a lot, and, um, you know, I should do the whole cause. It I don't know, one of those messengers to like talk to her friends and stuff, and I'd try and be like, Hey, I want to talk to him to e I was typing. We're friends, you know, stuff like that. Sometimes I caught my own, but sometime before the age of eight, I can't think exactly.

spk_0:   9:53
So that was trying to think

spk_1:   9:57
I'm 23. Yeah, and I can't match.

spk_0:   10:02
That was 15 years ago, So I was, like, around 2000 and four

spk_1:   10:08
e before that. Yeah.

spk_0:   10:11
Okay, so before 2004

spk_1:   10:13
Yeah, I guess I could have usually figure that out because my sister was born it before when I

spk_0:   10:19
was Yeah, s o. I think my earliest memories of using the Internet I was probably maybe, like, 12 or 13. So this was, like, around 98 99

spk_1:   10:42
huh?

spk_0:   10:43
And, uh,

spk_1:   10:44
who bar around?

spk_0:   10:45
Yeah, Not too far apart. Um, what? I used to use it for waas, basically, you know, like, just going online. This was before I want to say it was before Google, but it might have been before Google got big, but, um, definitely before Wikipedia. But, you know, I would only use the internet for research purposes. I've had a project to do our research paper, anything like that. Um and that's the only, like, riel Internet users that I remember. And I remember when I got into high school, probably like maybe around the 10th grade is when I started getting exposed, like social media, uh, one of the first, um, one of the first social media websites that John was caught high school club dot com, which I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist anymore. Um, but, I mean, it was really, like the first time I had, like, Internet friends and people that I solely talked to online people that would like across the country for me. And, um, knowledge is I just had a spot, and I feel like this is kind of one sided conversation. You could just tell you all that stuff that was going on in my brain. Ah, but I just had a thought is like the internet was created, as far as I know to be in a way to share information over great distances in a short period of time. Yeah, you had You know, you you have phones and you can call, you know, long distance, so you can pretty talk to someone pretty much anywhere in the world. But of course I was expensive. But with the Internet, you could talk to someone halfway across the world and making get your message in an instant, you know, email or whatever websites were created. You can pull down that information. And I was just thinking that the Internet was created. Share information. And even to this day, I feel like that's still the main purpose of the Internet is to share information. But the type of information is being shared is immensely different, Like before information was shared for, um for us to stand for more. For research standpoint, what now information is being shared for an entertainment standpoint. And I mean, I guess all this is just to say like, have you ever thought about I don't know It just kind of like what the Internet is and just how I mean the whole thing, how this wraps it back in a tick talk. Is that the trends and the tic tac challenges and stuff like that and the means that go around? Just have you ever like, just kind of sat and try to wrap your brain around like how these things get started or how they blow up to be a big they are.

spk_1:   13:53
Mm. In a way, yeah, I like it. Especially one, like a mean or something like that Catches on like I don't know. Like how? How does that happen? How does someone just start doing something that everyone's like? Yeah, that

spk_0:   14:09
it really feels like that's the reaction that people have. They seen something like, Yeah, that animated just rolls on from there.

spk_1:   14:17
Exactly. And then when enough people do it, it's just like everyone knows what it is, what, where you can have means made up of means. And it's like, uh, you show this to like anyone over the age of whatever. They have no idea what's going on exactly like it's Yeah, it's crazy seeing stuff like that. Ah, yeah, thinking back to lake, you know, like the basic messengers. And usually it was just like people. You do like that You actually knew that you would talk to you For the most part, Um, Maki is using a scratching post like China. Think I don't? It's craziest, but, you know, even like with the whole phone thing, you know you couldn't. You was the phone. If someone is on the Internet and now you can have so many different devices and phones going at the same time in one place, like just crazy, how fast it's gone too, right? I mean, 15 years or whatever is a long time, but it's still really isn't when it comes to something like that.

spk_0:   15:28
Yeah, especially crazy. You think of it compared to, like, other forms of technology, because it's like, look at how long it took four. You know, the automobile to get from its early conception toe where it is today and you're talking about probably, like, maybe 100 years. I think, like the first, maybe more than 100 years. I think the first car was, like, made in, like maybe the late 18 hundreds. Yeah, that's what I

spk_1:   16:03
was thinking.

spk_0:   16:05
But, um, I gotta sneeze into this is going to come out. Hey, um but yeah, it was just like technology is progressing so fast because I got my first cell phone when I was graduating high school. So that was in 2003 and it was like the old school Nokia brick that everybody had. And this is 15 almost 20 years later. And cell phones are like they're They're about the one that that they're about to come out with him, but they're developing, like foldable cell phones. You know, it's like, How did we get here if I not only how do we get here, but how do we get here so fast?

spk_1:   16:59
Yeah, no, don't know. It seems it's very much like Pacific technology, like the phones and the Internet and stuff like that. Um, so I don't know if it's just easier. Thio. You don't go farther with those or people are just focusing on those more rather than, you know, fine with kind of like cars where they are. But they're like what? The Internet and cell phones could be so much better. No idea.

spk_0:   17:32
I think it's like I feel like people are putting their focus into streamlining daily life, finding ways to make everything easier for us. So your cellphones, they're making it easier for you to be able to do everything from a device that can fit in your pocket. You know, they wanna make faster processing chips. They want to make, you know, faster wireless networks. So that way, you know, any time you pick up your phone, you can just find whatever it is that you're looking for. And it can be returned to you in an instant, you know, And that's where you get Amazon prime now, where you can just order anything that you want to order. And it's delivered to your house in a couple hours. You have, you know, while my grocery pick up and go grocery delivery and stuff like that. So I feel like anything that, uh, researchers, conducive to streamline our daily lives and streamlined living process, is something that they'll put their focus toward. And, I mean, even to the point where it's not necessarily that they're advancing or, um, evolving how cars are made but very evolving the technology that's put into the cars because, I mean, you still have the same basic, you know, car model. You know, you have four wheels, you have receipts. Your stare will in your engine all relatively made the same safe. Or, you know, if you have ah, electric engine, rest of the diesel engine or gasoline engine or anything like that. But you know, now you have lame assist parking assist and, you know, virtually almost a self driving vehicle to the point to where you know they're actually working on self driving vehicles so you can get more done while you're doing Maur, you know? And I think that's the way people want to live their life. Now. They want to feel as much time as they can with doing things so they don't feel like they're wasting any time. I wish in life for anything. I feel like that's what younger generations going up, they wanna have. They want I wanted. I'm gonna multitask everything I want to. I want Thio play games on my council while I'm watching a video on my switch, you know, and I'm also listening, too, you know, a podcast on my phone, you know, and making music, making beats on my PC. You know, it's like just all of this stuff being able to go on at once because I don't want to waste a second because there's some there so much to absorb. It was another than I was thinking about, because I, um, I recently got a PS four and I bought some games for it and other than Spider Man, we're really Spiderman with on that. I bought the PS four, but

spk_1:   20:38
kind of you.

spk_0:   20:38
But aside the point, the other games that I bought is like I played them. I basically like because it's a lot of RPG games like I have Kingdom hearts. I read their redemption, too. Ah, well, except for college running black ops for but, like I played them a little bit and then I just kind of stopped. Playing them is because so many other things that's far as media's concern is kind of like consumed my life. Like I, um especially after be cause When did I get it? It was like around November of last year. I think it came out. But so, like after the winter months. And that's what all your television shows that coming back on the new episode after they come back from the winter break. So, like all of the superhero shows that I watched Flash and Arrow and Black Lightning and Gotham and Supergirl and letting the tomorrow and all of that stuff, although she'll start coming back on, it's only Oh, I gotta watch the show kind of washed ashore this has a new episode of World of Dance is coming back on. Gotta watch that. But I didn't finish the last year, so I gotta catch up on it. Oh, I have to watch this, too. Oh, Michael and Jeff have been talking about the good place. I want to go watch the good place. I watched three seasons of the place in like, four days. So it's like there's so much media coming at you from every direction. And it's hard to Matt like getting grossed into all that and me, you know, watching all the TV shows, still keeping up with the movie stuff, coming out and still keeping up with all of the Russoti content that comes out and all the other things that I watch on YouTube or all other videos that I watch online. And it's like, When do you have time to do anything? House And and I mean, I still try to find time to have, like, a life and spend time with my family and my friends, and it's like and work. You can't forget about going to work. Yeah, it's just Is it so much? It was like, How do we live like this. Like if you could go back in time and you can take your younger self back to the present day for a day and show them how we're living, I think their minds will be blown,

spk_1:   23:07
huh? Yeah. No, it's Yeah, there's just so much going on. And like that, you have to keep up with, um, like, it's hard for me even to focus on more than one social media. Like lately, I've been on Twitter like, the past week or so. I've been pretty much solely on Twitter and then Tumbler every now and then, and usually it's the opposite, right? So it's like, I can't even focus on more than one social media when you have so much thrown at you.

spk_0:   23:39
All right?

spk_1:   23:41
Yeah, it's just insane. At least I don't have really with shows. Its I'm picky about things, so I don't have a CZ many like shows or things like that to worry about. Um, but I mean, they're still always people recommending things and then trying to find something good to watch and all the options there are having missed, if through, um and yeah, it's a lot.

spk_0:   24:12
So you say you, uh, you're picky about shows. What is something that you're watching right now? Like, maybe it's on Netflix or, you know, something on TV or Lulu or whatever you use.

spk_1:   24:23
Uh, right now, I'm That's my problem. I don't have any shows right now. Um, recently, I got done with watching person of interest. Okay? I think like a month and 1/2 ago, I finished that, and it took me, I don't know. It only took me like, a week to watch the whole thing. So I think they're, like, five or six seasons. And I didn't realize the last season only had 13 instead of normal, like 20 something episodes. E finished it a lot sooner than I thought. I was like, Well, I have nothing to watch. That's the most recent show I've watched.

spk_0:   25:01
Okay. Yeah, I've been, uh how what? It was the last thing and I watched. I think I feel like I'm in episode behind on mostly everything like episode behind our black Lightning on episode behind on Gotham. Like maybe three episodes behind our world of dance, like maybe two episodes behind on Arrow, or, like, six episodes behind on the flash and I haven't even watched Supergirl this season, and it isn't like at some point I got to catch up. And I mean, I feel like, you know, the weekend will be great for me to just sit down and just, like, binge watch everything. But then it's like, No, I want to get out and actually live life and go do something. So,

spk_1:   25:55
uh, um, not really a big show watcher like it's that's why part of the reason I'm so picky it's hard for me to focus on something for too long unless I'm really interested in it. So most of the time, like a 45 minute episode, I can't get all the way through, um, in one go, because I just get so bored unless, like sometimes I usedto, um, watch criminal minds while I was coloring. And that helped me to keep focused because I was also coloring, Um, but that's why a lot of times I just watch YouTube videos, and even then, if they're longer, it's harder for me to focus sometimes, Um, but a lot like, especially the game rooms ones there's are rarely 20 minutes and above there, usually word between 10 and 15 minutes. So their stuff's easy to watch for me. Yeah. Obviously, something is not

spk_0:   27:01
justice. Sounds like that's what cats do.

spk_1:   27:08
Before the podcast started, I went to grab my notebook and I knocked over my little dish that has, like, my earrings and stuff in it. So I didn't pick them all up because I didn't know where they all went. And I think he's playing with one of them right now. Mmm. Maki

spk_0:   27:28
gotta love him.

spk_1:   27:33
Oh, well, yeah, maybe old.

spk_0:   27:39
How do you think I feel?

spk_1:   27:42
I don't know.

spk_0:   27:44
I'm trying to hold. I'm trying to hold on to my youth by joining the tic tac and relate until the young people

spk_1:   27:50
probably think to the young people, you know, like confuse. That was when I saw your first. Like I never would have thought. You haven't events on that one post on tick talking, and suddenly you're just got, like, I don't know how many videos.

spk_0:   28:06
I think I'm up to, like 20 foot. I mean, wait, let me check. I am up to 29 videos right now, and this is just like, Oh, this is like, been three days.

spk_1:   28:24
Don't waste it. All

spk_0:   28:26
I need is like, like, even it. I don't need to pace myself.

spk_1:   28:30
Yeah, I go too hard, and then you'll be wasted and like, Wait,

spk_0:   28:36
now I'm done with it. It was fun while it lasted.

spk_1:   28:40
Exactly when you're gonna have, like, 100 videos, right? You made, like, 30 in three days.

spk_0:   28:50
Mmm. And I feel ashamed of myself. I

spk_1:   28:59
mean, the fact that you had that many ideas toe work with is amazing.

spk_0:   29:05
Let me like what the whole duet thing is like He can You don't really have tohave too many ideas a lot off.

spk_1:   29:13
I was praising you. And now you're putting yourself,

spk_0:   29:15
Uh, I'm sorry. I accept the compliment.

spk_1:   29:22
Oh, whatever.

spk_0:   29:32
So what do you got for me this week?

spk_1:   29:35
It's not so much a question has just I want to know your thoughts, Um, on SMR, if you know what that is.

spk_0:   29:48
My thoughts on air tomorrow. Um Okay. Well,

spk_1:   29:53
first of all, have you watched any es es amar videos? None

spk_0:   30:01
like that. A serious

spk_1:   30:03
Ah.

spk_0:   30:04
And when I say that, um, rooster teeth has done like a couple of Assam are videos are they've done a awesome are type things. Ah, they recently had a rt life. I want to say like, maybe two or three weeks ago, because they have a ah, buying your microphone. It's funny because you you watch John rising or, like, go around like taller Regency's employees with the bone or a microphone and have them doing, you know, quote unquote, as some are type things. And the microphone is really it's like a block with two years on the side, and it basically likes, signifies, you know, what's the left here was the right ear, and you can really while you're watching them, you know, do whatever they're doing, like eating chips or, like crinkling flowers are robbing fabric or anything like that. You can watch them as their, you know, favoring one ear over the other. And if you're listening with headphones, you can like literally here them on the different sides of your head. So as far as, um, Aeneas, like serious like a SMR YouTube videos on a thing like that, I haven't watched any of those just basically what the, uh, Russoti people have done.

spk_1:   31:23
Yeah,

spk_0:   31:23
but I mean, for me personally, it's not something that I find like soothing or relaxing or anything like that. Um and I mean, it could be because I haven't watched any, like, serious SMR video. Like watching people who are just making a joke out of Tamar has probably geared my, um, opinion to it as a joke. So maybe if I, like, brought in my residence and and watch something that's more I actually purposeful of trying to, you know, relax. You are because I mean, what's the mood, I guess that they're trying to achieve

spk_1:   32:16
MM was it depends on the person and the video. Okay, um, because there are two people that I watched consistently because I enjoy listening to us more. Um, and then sometimes there's like role play videos where they role play is either being your friend or like you're going to the doctor's office or something like that. Or sometimes they're just videos where it's just them, and they're just making, you know, noise with things. Um, so but it's always gonna be more of them trying to make it a relaxing mood. Um, you know, because they want you. That's the whole point of Assam are really is too kind of relax and either fall asleep or just kind of chill. They usually talking more quiet or whispered voices. And then, you know, there's usually like gentle tapping or things like that. Um, so I just like listening to it. There are certain sounds that people call them triggers, Um, that, you know, some people have and some don't. Sometimes they'll make specific videos with, like, all would sounds, because some people really like wood or ah, variety, where they'll do a bunch of different kinds of sounds. Um, but I like listening to him. To me, they do like, it'll help me to relax. And some of them are, you know, things that, like, make you like her to remind you of things. Like when you were a kid or something. Like sometimes if there's hair brushing because I usedto, um, love to play with my mom's hair when I was younger. Like when I was falling asleep. So that makes me sleepy, you know, stuff like that. Yeah, but yeah, I really enjoy it. Um what? Mackey, Um I know there are some that, you know, people make fun of A S and r a lot. Um, and I know there are some. I don't know if they are serious, but I know some people do someone like video game characters or like weird scenarios. Um, but the two people that I watch for the most part, um, don't do anything like, I guess, weird. I guess it depends on what you consider to be a weird video.

spk_0:   34:49
I'm just thinking back to the, um, the mind crab video. I think I want to say they were building Jeremy's house in my crowd, and Orion and Kathy were like acting, acting like, um, they were chefs in the kitchen and they were tough, like chopping vegetables in stuff. That's the kind of weird is Amar that

spk_1:   35:20
I think of. Well, okay, the two that I watch, um, consistently that I really like. There's Tingting. I think I don't know if that's like the name of her channel. I think so. I think. Tainting Epps. SMR um I watch her. She's Chinese. She lives in America now, but so she has like an accent when she says, you know certain words and it's really cute. And then, um, there's, Ah, gentle whispering. A Samara is her YouTube channel. She's actually Russian, but she's like you really wouldn't know that she's from Russia. She talks really well. Um, but they're both the ones that I watch consistently. I really like you kind of videos they've done recently if the rate at which they should be. Mmm. Gentle esprit. She has ones where she's done. Some of them, She's just been tapping, um, one she, like, did her makeup and was like whispering as she did it. Um, some are more role play. Like this one is her, um, like, trying to sell you men's cologne. Okay. And then Tingting Yes, Hers is maintaining a summer. Um, she has one where she's measuring you at a clothes store. Ah, this one is just whispering. So I mean, I don't watch all of their videos. There are some that I am just not interested in. Um, but for the most part, I like a lot of their videos. So if you want to actually watch, like, a good one, I Those are the two I would suggest. Okay. Um, it also helps that they are pretty girls.

spk_0:   37:17
That's never a bad thing.

spk_1:   37:20
That's what I've noticed. A lot too, is it seems to be mostly girls um, think I've only seen, like, one guy that I can remember. Um,

spk_0:   37:33
a filling for a guy you like have to have a certain type of voice that would appeal to, Ah, a wide range of people.

spk_1:   37:47
Yeah, I don't like, and then most of the time, you know, the girls have the longer nails, so they can tap on things. So I I think I've only watched the one guy the one time, and I didn't enjoy it, so I moved on. I don't know. I'm more interested in girls anyway, So works for me,

spk_0:   38:14
Uh, win win for everybody,

spk_1:   38:16
huh? Um, I don't remember why I first looked it up because it was like, I don't know, a year or so ago, maybe more. Um, I think it was just from hearing about it so much. And then I decided to watch someone that I ended up finding them and really liking them. Okay, there some that aren't, um that good. I don't know if it's just their newer or if they don't, like, go back in list in, because sometimes it's like, especially if it's like a quieter video or something. And some of the taps were kind of quiet and then suddenly there's like, a really loud one or something. Um, it's like that hurt my ears, so yeah, but I don't know why people make fun of it so much. I don't know if they've never listened to it, and they just think the idea is weird where some people just aren't into it. And that's fine.

spk_0:   39:19
Yeah, I think that's probably what it is that people don't really understand exactly. What S m. R is So, you know, people fear or their ridicule thing that they don't understand. So if somebody who is not really into exactly what s Amar is kind of like make a joke of it. And, you know, like we say about the Internet before you know, somebody sees something like, Oh, that images jump on top of it and you know, it just run with it. And so now all of a sudden, SMR becomes a joke. But you still have a subset of people who really enjoy it. And so they just, uh you have that core group of people, cause I mean, I saw the gentle whispering has, like, over a 1,000,000 subs on you, too. so that there's a market for it. And if you're good at it and you know you have enough ideas and you're creative enough in what you do, you're gonna have your gonna garner that following,

spk_1:   40:26
you know, for what was it she posted before? Um, like, it was just Ah, I don't know, like an update thing. Wasn't an actual video, but I think I didn't watch it. So I don't know, Um, Ellen do generous did like ah thing. And I don't know if it was like, straight up one of her videos or mentioned her name or whatever, but I remember because she was like, Oh, this is really cool. Talking about Esme are unlike, you know, big stage or something. But then pretty much everyone in the comments is like, Yeah, but she's making fun of you, so that's not good, right? But she was just really excited to be had. I don't like I said, I don't know if it was just her name or what it was, but to be essentially talked about on Ellen. But then all you know, everyone was like I mean, it would be cool if she wasn't making fun of you. Yeah. So even on, like, a big stage like that. That kind of made me feel bad. Just cause, especially she was so excited and then tohave it just her being made fun of

spk_0:   41:32
you. Look, you want to get that exposure, but you don't wanna might be the butt of somebody's joke for the same offense, voter.

spk_1:   41:41
Yeah. So I felt bad for her with that, but I don't know if people don't like it. Then that's perfectly fine. I know there's plenty of people that have tried and don't like it. That's yeah, but Oh, well, I guess. But I guess if it's you think it might be something you like sports, and if you don't like it, that's fine. But I wanna know what you think about it after you actually watch some, Like real videos.

spk_0:   42:13
Yeah, give those a try. Just I actually, like, take some time to, like, sit and listen to him and give it Ah, a genuine ah, genuine try.

spk_1:   42:25
Yeah, a lot of times what I do is all You don't have my headphones. Didn't be listening to him. And sometimes I watch the video and sometimes I'm still just scrolling through social media while I'm listening to it. So it's just, you know, you don't have to just sit there and just watch and listen to it, cause that could be kind of boring sometimes. Yeah, whatever works for you. Oh, I

spk_0:   42:55
feel like a woman and really talked about a lot this week.

spk_1:   43:00
Yeah, they're both things that really required thinking, right? Usually mine are very straightforward. Just a question. But this time I was like, you know, I don't know what I really want

spk_0:   43:16
to get your thoughts on this thing.

spk_1:   43:19
I don't know. I was just watching a video the other day, and I like, I wonder, but I've never really talked to anyone else about it. I've, like, suggested it toe my friends, but they haven't watched any of them. Still, you know, I'm like, Hey, watch this. So I couldn't you know, if you like it, I can recommend you more videos, or we could talk about it and they're like, Yeah, eventually,

spk_0:   43:40
I get around to it one day sometime.

spk_1:   43:45
Yeah, I think I said my one friend videos like at least six months, if not longer ago. And she still hasn't watched any of them

spk_0:   43:58
