10 notes August 17, 2012 Dan:I don't know why I'm so racist Jeff:Why are you so racist? Dan:Why is everything about race? Jeff:You're fascinated by race Dan:Because I was brought up to not be racist and I just I think that it's something that people care about, we're obsessed about it Jeff:You marvel at Mexicans and Asians and black people Dan:Because it's like, ok when you go bowling, your job is to- Jeff:Oh here we go Dan:The reason I'm fascinated with race I think, this is my defense of my fascination with race and racism, when you go bowling, you never see black people. No I'm kidding. That's what you thought I was gonna say, isn't it? No when you go bowling, there's pins down there and the goal of bowling is like you take a ball and you roll it. The reason why it's a sport and not just a thing that you do, is because of these gutters. The gutters represent this thing it's like by default what happens is your ball rolls into the gutter and you don't hit a single pin. So you have to like thread this needle with bowling, and with communication and with culture and stuff, with our perception of what race is and what racism is, we're so obsessed with it, and I'm always fascinated by the gutter. I'm fascinated by the fact that, oh if it goes too far to the left it just goes in there, and that that's the default response. And I don't know are we....is the guy that owns the bowling alley the right guy? Is the guy that's making all the money off of us threading this needle, is he laughing all the way to the bank? And is that the right bank? Jeff:Where you going with this? Dan:If that's not interesting to you guys, you deserves Jeff Davis' Mars uh- Jeff:I didn't bring it up! I didn't bring it up Dan:I will take the time to tell you- Jeff:Wait who's the hero in that bowling story? Dan:The person that's bowling is just any person, any person at all, it's a human being Jeff:Right, and what's the gutter? Rob:Mars! Mars! Dan:The gutter represents the fact that if- Jeff:Alright, Mars Audience:Mars! Mars! Dan:Alright, alright Rob:Holy shit Dan:Alright Jeff:Rob Schrab has become downright mutinous Dan:I'm telling you something, talk, talk. Well I was gonna say talk to me after the show, but don't. Talk to me before next week's show Jeff:Let's all go bowling, it sounds really wild Dan:Or pledge 25 hundred dollars to the Anomalisa Kickstarter and go drinking with me and Dino and I'll tell you all about the bowling metaphor, which I just landed on. I just made it up now. It's fucking perfect. I'm on to something, I'm gonna write a book and I'm not gonna share it with any of you, the profits. You're not gonna get a free copy, you're not gonna get anything 'cause you didn't support me.
