WEBVTT 1 00:00:01.240 --> 00:00:10.359 Begin part fixing network transmission. In three, two, one, here we 2 00:00:10.439 --> 00:00:15.919 are back again for more nothingness. Am I the only one that is still 3 00:00:15.960 --> 00:00:20.960 looking for some sort of connective tissue here? This is worse than phase four. 4 00:00:22.160 --> 00:00:25.480 Say what you will about the bald one, but at least he tried 5 00:00:25.519 --> 00:00:29.839 to weave things a little, and he's not even on the call sheet until 6 00:00:29.920 --> 00:00:34.240 the next episode. But I digress. You are not here to listen to 7 00:00:34.280 --> 00:00:38.759 me discuss the lack of structure here in season three. No, you figured 8 00:00:38.759 --> 00:00:43.679 that out on your own. So let's listen once again to all the entertaining 9 00:00:43.679 --> 00:00:54.119 ways we can find to not move the narrative forward. Do you know of 10 00:00:54.240 --> 00:01:00.840 the fairiest, dear the pixies in the wood, those tiny tinkling beans bringing 11 00:01:00.000 --> 00:01:04.599 human children? Good? Then you know nothing of the forest, for deep 12 00:01:04.640 --> 00:01:11.439 inside it lay the nasty, snarling, hideous creatures known only as the Fay. 13 00:01:11.400 --> 00:01:15.640 They bring their babies to their homes of good people far and near, 14 00:01:17.239 --> 00:01:22.519 then steal the child from its bed and in they disappear. The weak and 15 00:01:22.599 --> 00:01:26.959 growth hast baby they leave looks much like a human child. But as the 16 00:01:27.040 --> 00:01:34.200 fairy grows and grows, it's more and more reviled. These are the changelings 17 00:01:34.200 --> 00:01:38.760 in their cots, impostors for their own the parents will destroy the beastes if 18 00:01:38.799 --> 00:01:45.400 their identity is known. But there was once a changeling, a weak and 19 00:01:45.519 --> 00:01:49.959 sniffling child who would bite instead of Giggle, whose intifant face was SNYDE. 20 00:01:51.719 --> 00:01:56.840 The parents, only humble farmers, tried the best they could. Their efforts 21 00:01:56.920 --> 00:02:01.159 kept their child from evil, if not very good, and though the child's 22 00:02:01.239 --> 00:02:07.719 robotic voice made him the strangest boy, his parents lived him endlessly and called 23 00:02:07.840 --> 00:02:13.719 the Gild Lloyd. The one knows just what became, or even what's the 24 00:02:13.759 --> 00:02:17.719 Craig, if the parents ever found out or if the fear ever came back, 25 00:02:19.520 --> 00:02:23.240 but some have heard the whispers of a change. Lain grown, a 26 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:36.759 man who collects the tales of monstrous things for a deicious master plan. I've 27 00:02:36.800 --> 00:02:40.280 told you once, I'm not going to say it again. Lucky took a 28 00:02:40.360 --> 00:02:45.280 deep hit off his green pipe and the smoke swirled from the end of its 29 00:02:45.319 --> 00:02:50.919 pipe, forming green clover's horseshoes, rainbows and pots of gold that vanished into 30 00:02:50.919 --> 00:02:54.240 a neon light filled bar. You can't stay in re basement, but I 31 00:02:54.319 --> 00:03:00.120 got a quit killing and it okay. Is that a a thread? Baby 32 00:03:00.159 --> 00:03:07.800 Bear looked up from his pot of honey and whiskey. Because I don't take 33 00:03:08.159 --> 00:03:15.879 too well to threats, he giggled his maniacal giggle. It's not a threat, 34 00:03:15.960 --> 00:03:22.199 baby, that's just that's not good for business. If you'RE gonna kill, 35 00:03:22.560 --> 00:03:25.599 do it somewhere else. I've got a business hern and I have murders 36 00:03:25.639 --> 00:03:32.400 being in my trash can and it isn't good for the bottom line, pottom 37 00:03:32.560 --> 00:03:39.960 line. Baby bear twisted his head in confusion. Clearly not confused bottom line, 38 00:03:40.719 --> 00:03:46.719 he hummed to himself. Need I go into detail about what is going 39 00:03:46.919 --> 00:03:53.080 on out there now? Don't you get your batteries in a bind. I'm 40 00:03:53.199 --> 00:03:57.039 well aware of what is going on out there, but you can't be bringing 41 00:03:57.080 --> 00:04:00.919 it in here. Lucky flipped a coin and stared at the side in which 42 00:04:00.960 --> 00:04:10.479 it fell. It's ass against them, baby bear ground. Whose side are 43 00:04:10.599 --> 00:04:16.959 you on? Lucky sat very still, pondering the question presented. He took 44 00:04:16.959 --> 00:04:23.160 a deep breath and spoke my side. I am on my side, my 45 00:04:23.360 --> 00:04:28.000 business, my patrons, all are welcome to your correction. All who are 46 00:04:28.160 --> 00:04:31.639 down on their luck, all who's got money to spend a deal to be 47 00:04:31.759 --> 00:04:36.079 made a wish to be granted. I know about what is going on. 48 00:04:36.759 --> 00:04:41.920 I know whose side. I'm on the side that wins your best. Be 49 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:46.439 careful, little bear, lucky. Their eyes narrowed, because who you're going 50 00:04:46.480 --> 00:04:50.839 to turn to when Your luck runs out? The door to the bar flung 51 00:04:50.959 --> 00:04:56.079 open. A middle aged man with dark glasses and a DT F T shirt 52 00:04:56.160 --> 00:05:03.720 stumbled in. I need to speak to lucky. Baby Bear looked at lucky. 53 00:05:04.399 --> 00:05:10.879 He smiled. The bloodstain smiled, his tiny black eyes growing abysmal. 54 00:05:12.600 --> 00:05:18.279 WHO's lucky now? He pushed himself away from the table and headed towards the 55 00:05:18.319 --> 00:05:24.639 basement. Lucky stood up and slid out of his booth. My dear man, 56 00:05:24.879 --> 00:05:28.879 it's bade me you're looking for have a seat, and with that, 57 00:05:29.399 --> 00:05:35.720 the man and lucky sat down and began to talk. Okay, I'm back. 58 00:05:36.680 --> 00:05:42.199 Uh, no psychedelic journey yet. I'm not sure how long it's been. 59 00:05:42.319 --> 00:05:45.600 It feels like a very long time, but it's hard to say. 60 00:05:45.879 --> 00:05:49.399 I've mostly just thought about how hard it is to meditate, especially when you're 61 00:05:49.480 --> 00:05:55.759 naked in a strange place. I'll water my eyes, so there's a lot 62 00:05:55.879 --> 00:06:01.759 of eye irritation happening and that's not particularly conducive to meditating either. But overall, 63 00:06:01.800 --> 00:06:06.160 this pretty nice, I guess. I tried to focus on the colors 64 00:06:06.160 --> 00:06:11.160 that you see when you close your eyes tight, and that worked pretty well 65 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:15.120 for a bit. Maybe that was a little psychedelic, but it wasn't like 66 00:06:15.160 --> 00:06:18.639 eating mushrooms or anything, thank God. I hate those things. I still 67 00:06:18.680 --> 00:06:24.879 can't see anything, even my right hand right in front of my face. 68 00:06:24.959 --> 00:06:28.600 I think my best course of action now is to hop out for a second, 69 00:06:29.560 --> 00:06:33.199 rinse the salt out of my eyes and check the time so I can 70 00:06:33.240 --> 00:06:39.040 stop wondering about it. Then I'll get back in and get back to getting 71 00:06:39.040 --> 00:06:49.959 out of my head just a second. MM HMM. The door is stuck. 72 00:06:53.600 --> 00:07:01.680 The door is stuck. What the fuck? The doors? What the 73 00:07:02.000 --> 00:07:09.600 fuck? What the fuck? Hello, hello, the doors stock fuck. 74 00:07:10.879 --> 00:07:17.279 Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. Okay, okay, okay, okay, 75 00:07:17.360 --> 00:07:27.519 okay, okay, okay, okay, okay, fuck. Fuck. 76 00:07:28.199 --> 00:07:31.720 Okay, it's cool. It's cool. It's cool. Okay, it's cool, 77 00:07:31.759 --> 00:07:38.959 calm down. They said they'd let me know when my hours can get 78 00:07:38.959 --> 00:07:45.920 me out. Then there can't be that much time left. Fuck. Maybe 79 00:07:46.560 --> 00:07:51.000 you're just not supposed to open the door for some reason ship. Maybe this 80 00:07:51.079 --> 00:07:58.160 is normal. I'm fucking turning this thing on.
