20 – More Alexandra Daddario chat.

Jimmy went to the 4DX screening. It had a “water on water off” button. It was nauseating. The entire theater was 4dx. No doubt he should have left.

“Could there be more laptops?” – Mike

Real estate question for Eliot! Mike wants to know what they use to publicize vacancies. They use the same stuff he used.

1700 SF in Miracle Mile/Mid Wilshire. He wants $3150. He’ll make a deal with someone he likes.

80 – Is the floor open for questions? It is! Eliot questions us about coupons. He is uncomfortable using it. He then explains his trick for getting cheap wine without his date knowing.

We lost the oldest hippy. Sad.

Mike saw the 2nd to last Dead show in Chicago.

Jimmy on Greatful Dead: Five guys got together and decided to be boring.

85 – Lot of white people at the U2 shows. Mike questions how colorful the Bryan Adams audience was.

Bryan Adams did the soundtrack songs and they till suck according to Jimmy. Bryan Adams opened the show doing all the songs from reckless. Then he did more songs from his career.

Quizno’s is Mike’s word!

Jimmy talks about the Quizno’s near his old place that was owned by two housewives.

90 – Donut chat. Dunkin’ Donuts heading to LA. Great if you like stale donuts!

Matt will eat dunkin’ donuts like an asshole if you put him in front of him despite acknowledging that they are terrible.

Mike gives to Jimmy/Matt: 6 (+/-)(Sports)

Mike wants another shot.

Jimmy gives to Matt/Mike: 24(Celebrity)

120 – as a reminder those Bryan Adams songs suck.

Jimmy found a backstage pass on the ground. A VIP Meet and Great pass actually. He found it and returned it. He had Pat with him, who did not bring records to be signed. The lady who he turned the pass into recognized Jimmy. No benefits from that. He was recognized again at will call. Pat asked if that was going to happen all night. It did not.

Matt wonders what Jimmy would do if Bryan Adams asked him his thoughts on Have you ever really loved a woman”

Matt describes that song as the only thing getting 60 year old pussies wet.

We’re done!

My pleasure,
