020 - Happy Easter

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Show Note: This episode is incorrectly referred to as episode 19 during the show, because after two weeks of recording from my phone I lost count of where I was Apologies. 

This week, Andrew discusses the Easter egg hunt, fixing up a Traeger, as well as Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, Daniel Tiger (?!), and The Snyder cut of Justice League.

PODCAST, because parenting is a complicated profession. Oh nineteen of the dead learning in podcast. I am your host, Andrew, and I'm so glad to have you back here for another episode. You might notice we were back to the original music. I've actually had to switch up microphones and hopefully this is going to work a little bit better than we've had in the last couple of weeks here. But yeah, that has been the thing. I hope you've been having a great week so far. This weekend it was Easter for us and that was a good thing, kind of getting the time to spend with family and just kind of celebrating that. After Church on Sunday we actually got to do a egg hunt. It was just the boys and it was just in our front yard, but my wife and I got a bunch of plastic eggs and filled them with candy and then stuck them out on the front yard and let the boys hunt. I actually went up posting a quick video of that on my page, if you hadn't already seen that, but it was something where I followed him around. It was one of my first times using my Dj Osmo Gimble and something that I was actually posting. So it was pretty excited about that. It definitely it's got a little bit of a learning curve to it, but I think it made it really nice in a smooth looking video. So I was pretty pretty happy with how everything turned out on there. So that was kind of how we spent our Sunday, just kind of doing that. We wound up the boys were did a pretty good job of finding the eggs. Alton had a little bit of trouble finding the last egg, which was the golden egg, which he was so desperately wanting to be the one to find it and he did ultimately find it, but it was definitely one of those warmer, cold, cold, freezing where you going, son? That is the opposite of warmer, like it was just it was quite, quite amusing. So we had fun with that. If you haven't seen that, definitely check that out on our instagram page because that was a fun for this week. So it was definitely I mean it's one of those things. Last year when covid first hit, I think that was kind of like the thing for my wife is Alton is getting at the age where he's starting to be able to participate in these sorts of things and really remember like egg hunts and that sort of thing. And so last year, you know, obviously with covid coming up on us as quickly as it did, we didn't get to do an egg hunt with him. So that was something like, you know, Church would always do an egg hunt around the time of year and we just didn't get the opportunity to because everything got canceled, and so we did a little bit of an egg hunt last year. We did an egg hunt this year, but it's one of those things. Definitely looking forward to the point where things are a little bit more back to normal and we wind up having egg hunts again and all that fun stuff. So yeah, that was our weekend, or also just been, I mean hanging out Alton. One of the things that he got in his Easter basket. We do try to like give them something fun in there, and Alton got kinnectics and I don't know who if you have familiar with kinnetics and is it was definitely something that was not a thing when I was a kid and now it's like Oh, Kennetics, and it's like Plato, but not really like Plato, like it's different, like it feels like sand and it like coheses...

...together. What kind of like Plato, but it's cohes is even a word? I don't even know. Regardless, like that was the interesting thing with it was kind of getting to try that out and kind of feel it. And it's a little bit less dense than Plato, I think. But it also apparently doesn't dry out is easily, is what I'm hearing. So and like when you clean it up like you it can get in like carpet and you can get it out of carpet easily enough, supposedly. I'm not testing that theory, to be completely honest, like there are certain things that it's like as a parent. People Claim, Oh, this isn't so bad and you're like Oh yeah, and then you find out, waiter know, it's actually about as bad as it was. So I'm not going to test that theory. The boys play with it at the table and that's all well and good and fun. So yeah, that was a what we were up to this weekend. So hope you guys are just having a great weekend yourselves. Hope you're having a great week it is beautiful right now here in Oregon and I don't know, like it's just you know, we're going to get some rainy days, and I get that, like it's kind of just how spring goes. You get some really nice weather that reminds you, hey, summer's coming, but at the same time you also get those rainy days. It's like, Oh, here we go again. So super excited for the weather. One of the things this week that I actually got to do was replace a another part on my trigger and so that that was the kind of kind of a fun story. For those of you who weren't familiar. We did go ahead and replace the pro controller that we'd gotten, the off brand one. I think I made have told this story previously, but I wis the offbrand one that I sit bought to save money with a trigger branded controller, because, as it turns out, you do really get what you pay for, and fifty bucks for a pro control where seems like a steal until you've had to go through two of them and they don't work the way that you were expecting them to work. So bought a new one. Well, literally the first time that I tried to fire it up after getting the new one on, there the Auger Motor, which I think is the last mechanical part in this system that had not been replaced at this point. I have replaced the induction fan, I have replaced the heating Rod, the Heat Pot, I have replaced the internal temperature regulator, I've replaced the controller. So literally this was the last piece in there and it made a just awful noise like when it was winding up, and so it was one of those things I knew eventually it was going to have to be replaced, but when I fired it up and the fan on the back of the Auger Motor decided to fall off, I realized it is actually going to definitely be time. So thankfully there is a guy that I discovered locally who used to work for trigger and he had great conversation with him about my machine. Apparently he worked on that first one that came off the line for the machine that I had, so he was able to tell me quite a bit about it. But that guy also sells tregger parts and so he actually wound up having a replacement auger motor and I was able to pick that up from him. He shipped it to me because he was in Idaho at the time, but was able to get it to me and so we got that all squared away. I paid him...

...he mailed it to me. I installed the new one and it is fantastic. It works again. I was able to get it up to temperature with absolutely no problems and it makes a whole lot less noise. So I'm not yet to the point of getting myself one of those really Nice, you know, Wi fire connected ones, but definitely this is an upgrade. It feels a lot nicer and I'm just excited to be able to smoke meet together and it's be honest, we're getting into that season of life where it's going to be throwing stuff out on the smoker and litter rip. So yeah, give me, give me a brisket, give me a pulled pork, give me something to do. Like I actually haven't done ribs yet and I think that's going to be one of my next kind of projects, is getting ribs and doing them. But yeah, that has been fun. I wound up actually taking a masterclass. I got a master class for my Christmas present this year and that membership is good through the end of the year and one of the things that I've enjoyed with it is they've got one on from the maker of Franklin Barbecue, where the founder of Franklin Barbecue, not the maker, but and he talks about it and a lot of it stuff that you know, we've discussed previously, like I don't have use for how to build a fire. Now it is beautifully shot. I loved watching it, but at the end of the day I've got a trigger, I flip a switch, it sets the temperature and I'm good to go. So and people can argue whether or not that's real barbecue. I don't care. It's easier for me than trying to monitor a fire all day and all that fun stuff, and I'm okay with that. But the one that I haven't gotten to do yet is ribs, and so I'll probably go back and rewatch his episode on Ribs and kind of remember how that all works and then I'll take a crack at that. But they're apparently supposed to be pretty difficult to screw up. Not as difficult to screw up as a pulled pork is, but relatively just difficult. So all right, we're going to head to our first break here. When we come back we're going to talk about what we watched this week's and stay too and we are back. Thank you again so much for joining us this week. So this week's episode we're talking about all sorts of fun stuff. So, as you know, Falcon in the winter soldier has been kind of on my hot list as of late and I am loving this most recent episode. Spoiler alerts as always if it's something you haven't watched yet. Definitely don't come here thinking that you're going to hear me talk and not spoil something, because I love you guys, but I can't keep it to myself. I try to keep that embargo where I don't talk about anything until the Monday after it's aired, and that kind of is my solemn promise to you. To you, I'm you, I'm not gonna I'm not going to go. This week we break Zemo out and it was a fantastic breakout, can I just say, because the entire breakout is framed in Bucky giving Sam a hypothetical if Zmo were to escape during a prison riot, in all of these weirdly specific terms, and then Zemo shows up. We get a little bit of a...

...reveal about Zemo, more specifically that he was a baron and was in fact rich, which is where they wind up meeting up with him and getting on a plane to go and check out madraport, which is a fictional island nation wellknown from Marvel Comicsloor, mostly associated with Wolverine. But basically, think an island full of assassins wanting to kill everybody. Well, not everybody, but you know, kill each other really, and it's easy to put a bounty out on anybody. That sort of thing, all sorts of fun stuff, you know, arms dealers, smugglers, that sort of thing. Yeah, they're all it's basically like the Marvel version of Moss iisley Cantina, wretched hive of scum and vility. Well, they wind up going there and I'm not going to get into all of the details on it, but we do get a fantastic scene where they're in a club and Zemo is dancing. Or not. It's not a club. It's actually a gallery run by Sharon Carter herself, who we find out has been on the run since helping captain civil war and end is very much a different woman than we left her. She's not so clean and squeaky as she used to be. She's very much a underground person and she's kind of taken to that life where she's running a gallery that's full of stolen art. I mean it's all very fascinating when you find out kind of what she's up to. But there's a great scene in there where they're wandering around this thing and Zemo is dancing, and thank goodness for the Internet, because the first thought that it crossed my mind is, I really feel like what is love needs to be playing here, and somebody on ticktock already went and did that and it was about the funniest thing I could have expected. Him doing his little dance moves and you're just like, oh my gosh, like Zemo is a Dork, but also he is a villain and so but it was just one of those kind of humorous moments that's very interesting to get, like it's kind of the trademark marvel. You get a little bit of humor, you get a little bit of your action and so like. But Zemo being a terrible dancer to me just strikes me as like the epitome of what we needed in that particular episode. Overall, I really enjoyed this episode compared to the first two episodes. I'm going to be interested to see how they bring back John Walker and Oh battlestar. I can't remember the guys name all of a sudden, but the dude that his with him that to his sidekick. Like I'm they were going to try to talk to his emo and we'd find out the demo escaped, and so there I think, now going to be tracking down the trio and eventually that's going to come to some kind of conclusion where I'm sure they're going to be fisticuffs involved. But that was the fun for the week with that was just kind of getting to see these guys kind of in a different element and in a place that is very, very different from anything that we had seen before in Marvel. So pretty excited to see where this goes. Also interesting to find out that the super soldier serum had been recreated just before the blip in. The Guy got...

...blipped and then he comes back. The program has been dissembled, so he just recreates it for this power broker guy, who we don't know who that is yet. I think that the rumor that's currently running around after you get the call from Sharon at the end about we have a problem, I think that that is going to be a little too on the nose. If she winds up actually being the power broker. I don't think it really fits her character and I think they're trying too hard to set it up to make it look like that, sir. So I'm going to go out in a LEM and say she's not the power broker, despite the rumors out there. So it sounds like she really wants to be home and she wants to be pardoned, and so that, I think, is where her story is going to go. But I also feel like seeing Carly Morgan Thou set up as a villain as well. I think that's also going to be kind of a misdirect I think that is something where you realize that her hearts in a good place, she's just going about it in a way that may not be perfect, and so I think that we're going to get more character growth out of both of those individuals over the course of the remaining episodes. So next thing that we watch this week was mighty ducks game changers. I am loving this series. Honestly, it's one of those I didn't know I needed it and now that I have it, I'm so glad that I have it because it's just a fun little series and you know, I realize as I'm watching it. You know, I grew up loving hockey, like not necessarily watching a lot of it, but like I watched all of the mighty ducks movies on repeat as a kid and like I played some street hockey when I was younger, that sort of thing, and so it's just fun to kind of get back that feeling and kind of that whole vibe. And I think it was interesting this week because, yeah, the team got absolutely hammered, but I think we're starting to see Gordon Bombay maybe softening a little bit and realizing these kids need him, even if he's not yet willing to commit to coaching them yet. I think it's going to be very interesting to see how this all plays out. So the whole idea between Lauren Graham trying to coach them and trying to do it in ways that were unconventional. It kind of harkened back to how Bombay tiht them when he really decided to invest himself, even though it may not have been the most what is it successful method, as they got their butts handed to them pretty handily in this episode, but it was still something where I think they are going to have a lot of fun moving forward with that. I think we're also going to wind up seeing the one girl, who I've dubbed this version's Adam banks, eventually convert from the ducks to being one of the no bothers and she'll probably go and whoop everybody. So that, I'll think, will be an interesting way to play it as well. So that was another fun thing. Another thing I do have to say, like this is a little off the normal path for when we're talking about stuff that we're streaming, but we watching Daniel Tigers neighborhood with Austin and that is one of those shows, like kids shows. I get that they're really not geared for adults, but it's just one of those things I find myself...

...like watching and kind of like listening and just going Ah, yeah, okay, like I find myself really critical of stuff that happens in kids shows, despite the fact that really there's no real reason for me to be as critical about it. So we were watching a Daniel Tiger neighborhood movie where a kid moves in from out of town. I can't remember her name, but she's a platypus, like the whole platypus family, and it's a mom, grandma, twins and the daughter that's about Daniel's age, and the whole town wanted to come together and throw a party to celebrate them moving into town. And can I just tell you, guys, if I were moving into a neighborhood and the whole party thing, like everybody in the neighborhoods like we're throwing this big party for you and there's a musical number to greet you and all of that, like, I feel a little bit weird at out. Maybe that's just me, but like I feel like a yeah, you're in town, everybody is here and we're celebrating the fact that you've moved into town. It's like, do you do this for everybody that moves in, or is it just me? Like, and if it's just me, why me specifically, like why don't you do this for everybody? Or if you do do this for everybody, why do you do this for everybody? Because this feels like going maybe a little bit over the top, and I mean that's kind of like with musicals to right, like there's the strange planet comic where Bell is talking to her father's like Papa, am I odd? No, dear, why would you say that. Well, the whole town just sang an entire song about it to me. Oh yes, I did see them practicing that earlier. Like you kind of wonder in musical situations. Like I get that it's supposed to be a suspension of disbelief in its fantasy and you know, you supposed to be having fun with it, but I always laugh at those because I'm like how totally unreal is this? Like Hey, yeah, everybody burst into song, like I think the movie enchanted probably waned into that best where there's the sequence where she's singing. How do how does she know? And like everybody starts joining in and Patrick Dempsey is basically just everybody who is watching at home going. How do all these people know this musical number? Why is everybody dancing? What is going on? I don't understand what is happening right now. Like it was a very fun sequence for me in that movie. You just like watching Patrick dempse like what, what is going on? So that was a lot of fun there. I did finally finish Justice League, the Snyder Cut. What I will say? Did I like the movie? Not especially. No. Did I like it better than the Joss whedon version? Yes, it actually felt like there was a lot more cohesiveness to the tone and the feel of the story, a lot less quippiness and honestly, I think one of the things that's coming out of all of this, particularly with the Ray Fisher situation and all of that, is Joss whedon is kind of a jerk, and so I'm glad that Zack Snyder was able to eventually give the people what he originally wanted to give. Even if there's so many plot setups that we have in this that we're never going to get...

...payoffs on, like, it was still kind of Nice to see his vote vision fulfilled. On there. I did appreciate a lot more of the backstory of Cyborg, who was really supposed to be the heart of the film according to Snyder, and basically he got reduced to almost nothing in the original and being brought about to bring that origin story back and to bring back kind of what his motivations are and his development as a character and bringing him in. He was a very important part of the separating the mother boxes at the end and on top of that, Superman was also brought in to really be more of a warrior against Steppenwolf. I always forget that guy's name for whatever reason, but anyway, it was definitely a more violent vision of Justice League, which I think was really ultimately I mean that's Zack Snyder's calling card at this point. He's very good with the violence and it's not my cup of tea personally, but it is something where, you know, there was definitely a moment to it where you're like, oh, okay, yeah, we just lopped off Stephen Wolf's head and sent it back to his master. That's awesome. So, but the feel of it, I think it felt like it was setting things up to eventually wind up being kind of like that whole idea of injustice where superman goes bad and what was being the key to everything. I think we all know in injustice always winds up being killed by joker, causing him to hallucinate and Superman accidentally kills her and his unborn child at that point, and so I kind of feel like that's where this was eventually going with that and that we probably would have gotten to see that translated a bit. Like I've read, there's a whole bunch out there on what Snyder had been planning that we're never going to get unless somebody at Warner Brothers decides, you know what, this is doing a lot better than every thing else we're doing. Maybe we should go ahead and honor that. Like I don't think we're going to get restore the snyder verse, but you know, I didn't think we were going to get the snider cut to begin with. So here we are with the four our epic and that is what it is. So yeah, AH, I did appreciate the character development given to Ray Fisher's character, especially like I felt like Cyborg was just kind of there in the original and now it's okay, he's really a key component of this entire story, and so I really do understand and appreciate why they included him and what his purpose there was. Now. So, like I said, still wasn't a huge fan of the movie. It's not what I like in a movie, but it is the type of thing that gets a lot of people going and it is something where I do feel like they did justice to Justice League in this particular instance. So that was that. All right, we're going to head to our last break. Then when we come back we're going to do our pod deck question of the week. Stay tuned, and we are back...

...thank you again for tuning into our episode. It is definitely something I do value, the time that we get to spend together and the fact that you guys enjoy just hearing from me and kind of talk and about the different stuff that we've been watching. That all being said, if there was a sandwich named after you, what would be on it? Well, honestly, like my ideal sandwich when it comes right down to sandwiches, I think, would be a Cubano. So I don't necessarily see myself reappropriating the Cubano Sandwich for myself, but at the same time, like the stuff that is on the Cubano Sandwich, like if you can find a good Cubano, it's fantastic. You know, you're talking your ham, your pulled pork or all of that mustard cheese, like just just on perfectly crisp bread. Yeah, I think like I would just try to rename the Cubano in my honor, which I don't necessarily think would work, but I think that would kind of be my ideal sandwich coming out of this. So yeah, it just it was a very that's kind of my favorite, I think, when it comes down to sandwiches, is that Cubano, which I don't get a whole lot, but it is one of those things that I do try to if I find it, I do like to try them and see if different places have good Cubanos. So that is our episode for this week. I appreciate you guys tuning in. I appreciate you taken the time. I appreciate your support. You can support the podcast by joining the dad do Lori and covert at buy me a coffeecom slash the Dad Dolore in and we have membership option there. It's either three dollars a month or thirty dollars for the year. You can provide support help us going forward, just kind of continue on with the podcast. If you want to provide support just on a, you know, onetime basis, there's also options to do that there as well. But I do appreciate the time that you spend there. I appreciate our dead lay and covert founding member, Dave over at the freckled lion would shop, and just love the fact that he has come on board with us and just got to spend some time with him a couple weeks back on our first dad door in covert meeting. got that coming up later this month. So if you want to get in on that, will probably do another game and it will be on xbox one and yeah, that'll be our thing is for this particular of time and it's something I think as we get more people, if it's something where we can't do cross platform play on a particular game, then we may have to find another way to do it. But it is something where definitely I am keeping an eye on that and looking forward to being able to do that on a monthly basis. So hope you guys are having a great week. Whatever you're doing out there, I hope you just crush it and remember parenting is...

...a complicated profession. Stay safe out there, take care of my friends.
