I've a couple of I like to cook and for the sushi place nearby house and platelet why reinvent the really let them do it goat and a leader that often not enough. My my special deal for cooking like the barbecue smoke yes vote foods. And those things. But. Polk food at a couple days and he'd say pork shoulder and ribs and so you know. I don't agree I actually have my own food drug have a barbecue. Through drugs local board you know political tee. We'll Google achieve those that you have a nickname nickel in them difficulty those famous. Smoker barbecue. You know what to do when you head down to this literally the farthest place from here basically you know Delray. All right so we got to ask you Florida's kind known for crazy news stories whenever we see a news story that is some. Up stuff a lot of times it's. Peace in Florida and what's up man what's up with Florida. What's your crazy view that wolf wolf Florida cape. Not many people are from Florida for the reason because like when I was a kid may be worn. And ten people over for me not even but now it's like it's got to be I don't know maybe O 150 because. Everybody come so beautiful there in so Leo that the winter obviously yet warm year so it's like they're so. A lot of influx of trade he has you know so. You have people attract all the crazy so we will yet every walk of life go down there so you crazy or that their two they do crazy. Oh in the lower. He doesn't put out ten records may has been around for along time but put them and they've put in work for a long time we're kind of periods like where we kids with a play in a new record a lot and we were you know saying the other few records called obituary. Self titled why after all these years that you choose to go self titled mentally. It was funny it wasn't like. It would methodical we basically. We have calls out our look at the titles with a salty it's always name or comes up after titles all atom. We edit these or work we were true we do for the or that we had this peace or that we and is using. For a few years ago we did the vision in the bush album. We. Had Andrea Marshall paint this other piece that same time for possibly maybe dvd justice an idea we have with it is to get a permit. Did save our legal fees or at the same time. It was just kind of sitting there and on the shelf. This piece adult. I think his name is that we look don't think hate the artwork he's that he's the cool look at logo. So that when the you know. Aside now and cup title we were go to this all with him. We go there was logos or name call that. Card every period is that so. Obituary bio obituary. The heavy. Yes it was like is it wasn't so that we like. Well again some super deep mean you know it's kind of as the artwork lately to do. That. And. Are immensely a year onstage. You write the music you're playing with the Victoria all the time what is like the heaviest so preacher like that the obituary hit risk. Like the one that just sets it off what's like the number one I've used the obituary risking your it's a different kind of level that it means like will push slowly obviously the place you were up. Yeah every time images it's more we kicking that after that in truth or what's cakes and hopefully Europe's. But like on this that would do it right now. I do it. The heaviest riff that probably too early this but it's still in Haiti people are like stunned that their views and giving him no Paducah is still talking heavy in incomes that Ph.D.s that's brutal. It's a pretty Europe. You know indicating go get your health insurance. I think you can take care of we always talk and a low one of our favorite questions asked peoples like the light bulb moment you have you know when you're younger maybe Yuri you saw something our record this and that we went and my media in that. Some curious what was the first medal record or record. You can remember buying with your own money. How's the good question. Send you back. It's. Probably. That it. Did you. It was just a mile my first album I ever had whose give it to me was a she she high voltage. There first. Physical record that was in my hand. Probably Iron Maiden. The piece probably will. Maybe. Everybody's got that story and a young kids that are listening now older heads in this and that this is good you know and Mike. Now somebody's gonna go by their record because they like him. Or yeah. All right so obviously we all know the big four of draster got slayer anthrax Metallica meg day. If you were to achieve the big four of death metal what's the big four of death metal. Well. Before he does well I don't know like if Newton has renewed popularity. Bush. I would say like. Celtic frost would be worn for sure. To me this is to me obviously gives viewers some good news period via and I love to death allied I think death should be part of that. News. Yeah. Judge orders it venom that you don't really don't know right having. I'll just a dude is that cells they possess. And I guess I would have to say are bad meaning. The vendors.
