I know no one asked for this, but here is the entire script of The Big Day review

2020.10.22 10:13 Accurate-Camel-5148 I know no one asked for this, but here is the entire script of The Big Day review

Hi, everyone. Sothony Sadtano here. The internet’s busiest music nerd. And it’s time for a review of the new Chance The Rapper album, The Big Day. This is the new album from Chicago singer, songwriter, rapper, and also Kit Kat sales rep, Chance The Rapper, aka Chancelor Johnathan Bennett. Here it is, The Big Day, the day that one of modern hip hop’s most beloved figures, finally comes out with their debut full length commercial album. Because, believe it or not, up until this point, Chance has sustained this super high profile in the music industry off of just free albums and mixtapes. 10 Day, Coloring Book, Acid Rap. And even now, Chance still seems to be doing it without a label, as The Big Day is self-released.
Now, look, I have never been a huge Chance The Rapper fan, a Chance The Rapper stan. But I did enjoy Coloring Book quite a bit, I thought Chance put out a lot of good singles in 2018. Generally I think the guy is one of the more stand out, exciting and one-of-a-kind rappers in the current field. The way he fuses elements of Hip-Hop and Jazz and Soul and Gospel are pretty cool when he’s doing it on a quality track. Generally the man’s verses are pretty poetic, his pen game is good. So going into this album Chance has style, he has flow, he has personality, he has lyrical ability, he most likely has a budget and a mountain of producers stumbling over each other to work with him. So going into this, I had no reason to expect anything other than just, a quality album. But god, sweet lord baby Jesus, that is not, that is not what we got.
The Big Day is essentially a 22-track torture chamber with 77 minutes of run-time, lots and lots of features, some of which are kinda bad, corny skits, offensive vocal performances, and honestly Chance’s worst bars to date. The worst ones. On nearly every track here. I can give this album some light praise on some of the features being pretty good, Dababy, Meghan Thee Stallion, Nicki Minaj. All of whom bring some decent guest verses. There were also some instrumentals here that I thought were pretty cool. But what Chance offers vocally and lyrically on these tracks is so, off the mark, so obnoxious, so excruciating, that it completely just cancels out any positive aspects this album has going for it. It’s not merely that we have good features and good beats, and Chance himself is underwhelming, or not really standing out, or a little boring this time around. No, that is not what is happening here, I wish that is what was happening here.
I was dreading doing this review, because that means having to go over most, if not all of the terrible ideas that Chance has to offer on this thing. But I think this album’s biggest problems can be boiled down to 2 major issues. 1. We have these weird genre and guest fusions that don’t come together all that well, that mostly sound like a mess, it seems like Chance is trying to prove himself as a Kanye protegee who can, essentially, bridge these cultural and musical gaps between hip hop, and indie, and about a dozen different other genres. And orchestrate it in a way where it all comes together harmoniously. But instead, what we get on this record are tracks like “Roo”, which sounds like Chance is trying to incorporate the same cold, electronic, flat aesthetics that Lupe was trying to apply to his infamous album Lasers. I thought the small Coco-Rosie appearance on the track was kind of cool, though.
There’s also the opener, “All Day Long”, which sounds like a very peppy mix of Synth-Funk, and Electro and Rap and Gospel. It’s like a kid that just won’t stop jumping around, “Stop, Stop, Calm down please”. Instrumentally, the title track sounds like a bad acoustic trippy B-side from the Flaming Lips discography. And the song “Found A Good One” is likely the worst hip-house song ever recorded. Ever. It’s also one of a few moments on his record where Chance is actively trying to throw back to a more nostalgic time, embracing Hip House, embracing older shades of R&B, there is even an instrumental here that suddenly breaks into a Juke breakdown. But even when Chance switches up his musical backdrop, Chance lyrically and vocally still manages to fall flat on his face.
The other major issue I have with this record if I didn’t already make it clear, It’s Chance’s singing, his rapping, his lyrics. Explaining how god awful a vast majority of the writing on this album is, is difficult. Because Chance Isn’t even throwing out 1 or 2 or even 4 bad bars in a song, or in a verse. Essentially, he gish gallops or overwhelms whoever is listening with all these painfully mediocre bars. The opening verse on the first track alone is filled with landmines. “If you blink you might miss it, you gotta click it or ticket”, “Life is short as a midget, but mine’s a little Lebron”, “I’m bout to book a show at the Dimmsdale Dimmadome”, “And shout out to Ms. Sylvia Rhone, we get along, but that boy advance gotta be bigger than Diddy Kong” He knows Diddy is the small one right? Donkey Kong is the big one. Or is he saying the advance was small and he wants it big, and he’s, he’s insulted by it? I don’t know. It’s not a very good simile. “I need stock and it gotta be Pippy Long” Are we serious?! “My next tour got 8 legs like daddy long” WHAT THE HELL ARE THESE SIMILES?
The Charlize cologne line in this opening verse just sounds like straight up product placement. And it’s not just bad writing on this record, which there is a lot of obviously, but there are also plenty of tracks Chance goes just disgustingly sentimental. Like on the track “Do You Remember” with none other than Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie fame. Instrumentally, the track just sounds like a Macklemore song, thematically it sounds like a Macklemore song, with just lots and lots of bars that feel underneath Chance’s pen. The song “Eternal” is even worse, it’s a track, essentially, about how side-chicks and side-dudes aren’t as good as what you have at home. They can’t cook this good, they can’t take out splinters. And not that I’m advocating for infidelity of cheating here, but, who is this track trying to fool, it doesn’t sound like a genuine expression of love, but more of an attempt to stamp out this nagging temptation.
And I feel like these suspicions are confirmed as Chance seems to go into some lies and transgressions that he addresses on the track We Go High. But sticking with “Eternal”, there is also a completely comatose feature from Smino on the track that doesn’t go over that well. Then we have the track “Hot Shower”. More like Hot Garbage. This song features some of the worst bars Chance has ever recorded. Point blank. Period. And look, there are some rappers that would sound amazing going this ridiculous, yes, no denying that. But nothing Chance says on this track is even remotely funny, most of the time it just sounds like he’s just trying too hard to be weird. “I don’t wanna sit and argue, Good Burger shoulda taught you, weall dudes”, “And I’m all professional and proper, but my baby mama stopped me in a meeting just to airdrop me some nudes”. Not only this a track where Chance essentially just BS’s he way through a trap beat, but this is one of the many moments heer where a guest rapper handily outdoes him, and there’s also the track “Slide Around'' featuring Nicki Minaj where I would much rather listen to Nicki rap on this beat, than Chance, though I do find it weird that both of them, at one point, sort of rip off the Drake “Keke, do you love me” flow.
Lyrically, there is just no relief, at any point on this record, I think the longest running lyrical oasis was, maybe the first few minutes of “5 Year Plan”. But outside of that, nearly nothing. Nearly nothing. The track “We Go High”, which, in that song’s defense, does have some pretty musical passages on it. But then we get “We give the glory to you god, one livin true god, he make us booyah”, “Pretty sure I need you in this season like a flu shot”, “My wife nanny like Fran Drescher, three damn grammys my granny like no pressure”, “F*** going straight to the pros Im professor”. And there are moments on this thing where just the sound of Chance’s voice is unbearable. And look, there are songs in the past where I have felt that way, like on 10 Day or Acid Rap, which I noted in my review of that tape, however, I did think he was on the mend with that sort of thing when it came to Coloring Book, but now it’s like it’s gotten worse than ever.
Like on the track “I Got You (Always And Forever)”, which is sad because I do love the shimmering, glamorous R&B throwback the instrumental provides but when Chance pops in on this track he’s got this squeaky ass voice, this terrible flow that seems just like a rip-off of Shaggy or Bone Thugs. It just makes me cringe so hard I feel like my teeth are gonna grind down to nothing. The most aggravating moments on this record, of which there are many, are the tracks that sound like “Hey, this has a pretty good start, this could go somewhere, this has potential, this almost sounds good”. But then at some point, Chance does something, to just rip that away. Whether it be with terrible singing, terrible bars, flat production, a bad guest. The “F*** it, F*** it, F*** it, F*** it, F*** it” freakout on the title track which is cringe as hell. Sounds like a bad Death Grips impression. On that same title track, Francis And The Lights has a guest vocal appearance which is pretty awful too. It's like he’s in a competition with Chance to see who can do the worst vocal and the worst impression on the track, he sounds like Bon Iver’s less talented cousin Don Iver.
There’s also the sudden Peanut Butter Jelly Time references on the track “Ballin Flossin”, The totally sucky flat vocal production on the track “Let’s Go On The Run”. Not to mention the opening lines “ Hey there lovely sister, won’t you come home to your mister, I’ve got plans to hug and kiss ya, I’ve got plans to hug and hug you”. I just feel like I’m non-stop ranting about how trash the lyrics are on this record but that’s literally like, all I can do, they're really bad. The track “Zanies And Fools” is an attempt at trying to create this epic gargantuan closer, with lots of group vocal samples with west African drums, some smooth and moody synths as well. The whole thing sounds like what you would get if you forced at gunpoint Tune Yards and Kanye to collaborate on a beat, and it just came out really crumby. Which is not the only point on this record where Chance is obviously copying Kanye, mind you. Chance’s bars are weak on this track as well, and he allows Nicki Minaj to tie the last verse of this song and the end of this album up. I do appreciate that she tries to address the album’s themes of Love and Marriage and Family, but um… I don’t know man, it just kind of seems like he’s letting her have the last word when it really should be his, Chance, I think should be making some attempt to tie this record up, this mess of a record up in some way, shape or form and he just doesn’t because there isn’t a way to, because this album is a pile of slop.
I now see why this album, on here, I now see why this is clear, because I see right through this BS. There are other points I guess I could go over like the weird licensing bars on the track “Sun Come Down”. Or the lifeless singing and super bland production and non song, that is delivered on the track “Town On The Hill”. But what’s the point at this point? There are so many terrible ideas written and employed on this record. It’s either falling short because the base concept is terrible, or it’s just been carried out in an awful way. I did not love a single song from the album, not one single track. There were moments where I caught a breath of like “Oh, this, ooh, ahh, uhh, maybe? Could be decent. But it just did not pan out. And considering how long this album is, and how consistently unbearable a lot of it is, I just don’t know what to say.
Im genuinely feeling like a STRONG 0 on this record, it’s like a STRONG 0 to a LIGHT 1. STRONG 0 to a LIGHT 1.

2020.10.22 08:19 thisgirlistired Dumped after 7 years...Out of the blue...

Long story (not so) short: My boyfriend and I met in our senior year of high school... (I have dated other guys before him... but he has not dated other girls before he met me). We dated for 7 years and two weeks ago he dumped me out of the blue. I thought he was the love of my life. I felt as though we had a VERY strong soul connection. He told me when he broke up with me that we didn't have many similar interests (even though we did, we just didn't have similar interests in the one area he would have liked us to... he was a very active person and I mean VERY active and I am a zen person and like to chill, but still do active things as long as it doesn't require me going on a 4 hour hike... get what I'm saying?)
Let me re-wind a bit now: A few years back, my boyfriend's sister suddenly passed away. His sister was a very active person as well and they would do all sorts of activities together while him and I were dating. They had a really good relationship and were very close. After she passed away a few years back, my boyfriend (In my opinion) never fully grieved. He never opened up about losing his sister or took any of my suggestions on how to release some of the things he was feeling/thinking inside. I think he may (subconsciously) be looking for someone to replace his sister and all of the active things that they used to do together.
Anyways, last year he wanted us to take a "break" suddenly. He claimed that he had wanted time apart to discover himself and do things on his own and create a healthier lifestyle for himself. For those two weeks that we were apart I stayed with my mom (he and I were living together at the time and he asked me to leave). After spending those two weeks apart, he realized that he "didn't want to ever be without me" and all that jazz. So we got back together.
I tried my hardest to get on board with the changes he wanted, because I didn't want to lose him, but my trust was completely broken as the break was so sudden. I communicated to him that my trust was broken and that he would have to work on his communication skills and try to earn my trust back. When he told me about the break, he didn't even let me know he was unhappy beforehand - he just decided that he wanted a break and I was beyond hurt. I tried to have a conversation with him and tried to get him to communicate his feelings and hear mine as well, but he told me he had made up his mind (it was a very one sided conversation).
Fast forward one year to now: He does it again... but this time ends the relationship completely. No warning (yet again) and told me he has made up his mind and that he wants different things now. He barely let me have a conversation with him regarding the breakup (as I tried to fight for us) and told me that he wouldn't change his mind. We have always talked about having kids one day and getting married. I always let him know that I wasn’t in a rush to have those things, but I wasn’t also going to wait forever. When he broke up with me he told me that he didn’t know if those two things would ever happen for him. He also is jobless right now and has no idea of what he wants to do for his career. He is going to school part time, but isn’t passionate at all about what program he’s taking.
My friends and family have told me that he seems COMPLETELY lost… and I agree. However, I don’t think him being “lost” can excuse him for all the sudden pain that he has caused me. He just gave up on our relationship. Just like that. He completely shattered my heart. For the past two weeks I haven’t been able to eat or sleep properly. I feel like I am stuck in the worst version of my very own groundhog day.
I don’t really know what advice I am looking for from the Reddit community… but any insight, advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. X, Thisgirlistired

2020.10.21 22:32 mrglubo1212 My interesting day at school

So I tried to do this before but my story about my day got deleted so I'm sadly gonna skip when my tics started.
Ok so over view my name is cori I have tics I haven't been diagnosed yet but I have tourettes, autism, adhd, add, depression, asperger's and more to come probably. So I'm gonna make side notes they will be marked like (this). I have a bad memory and sometimes I come back a few minutes later I will state it. This happened three or four months ago when it started.
Ok to the story I skipped when I discovered my disability but basically I had two tic attacks as my introduction to tics I watched some videos on how to deal with it and what it is so at this point I know what's happening but not to much.
Alright it's cold (I dont usually wear more than underwear at home) its a minute later. So I wake up it's super cold and I'm ticing at the time I think my head was cocking all over the place and my arms and hands are too and I'm super afraid to tic and have a tic attack at school. So I'm thinking and worrying about it the whole day. I put on my clothes do me hair all the essentials and put on some Jacob collier jazz because he is one of my inspirations oh crap I'm off track ok so I get ready and I feel how cold it is out side because at this time I started to suspect that the cold could trigger le tourettei (that's what i call limits a mix of French and Italian.) So I get my bike then I tic and I'm like man I'm about to die if I ride today I can't control them enough yet. So I asked my (step)dad if he could drive me today So I'm in the car mm truck my bad. I'm at school and my heart immediately starts hurting or I guess beating so hard that it hurts and I star worrying about ticing in class I now know that think about and worrying about tics makes them happen 9 times out of 11. So I put on my mask and walk to the front of the school( I get dropped off near the end of the school so I have a lot of walking to do and plenty of time to fret.) So now I'm st the front door and I meet up with me Boi's my friend cory says hello to me and I in my head start to hear say hey f&g ot to him and its repeating over and over so I say out loud to myself dont you dare say that and cory asks what and I say I can't because if I do, then it came out. I said sorry also hes not gay btw. I found out just today that its coproskeptsi and CV this type of thing would happen around four to 5 times in that day and is still happening now. Oh and I also yelled f really loud. Ok so we walk in I get my food and walk to class while tell my friend wil about my new disorder and hes like oh crap really and I'm all like oh really crap. So now im in class still ticing just at a very low rate and I sit down and begin eating. At the time I forgot that I am lactose intolerant because of the adhd so I drank the milk and proceeded to have the worst day of school since I got bullied for acting too girly back in second grade, but that's a different story for another time. Ok so I drink like half of the chocolate milk and I put it down ok I'm back I was thinking about my f word tic. Ok so now I'm hearing it again and its saying hey f word hey f word and I'm like oh crap please do say that, to my self but aloud. A few seconds later and it just comes out I say and I'll describe it and I said fu fu fu fu&k !!! Then I said sorry and and the teacher said in a stern tone cori we dont curse at school then i told her that I couldn't control it. She came over To me and talked to me (ooo I just noticed it I ticed and put and down twice) so I took the time to tell her I have a tic disorder but she didn't quite understand so I said I will try to warn her next time because for certain tics I can tell what they are and if they are gonna happen I obviously can't tell exactly when but yea. So I'm gonna skip to the main part of the story third period and lunch.
Third period mkay I skipped second because the same thing happened then as well. Ok so I'm walking to my next class and I'm in the hallway ticing-hoping no one is staring at me but I know they are and I worried and I saw this big group of girls and yelled at them hey f you c's. Oh and I heard it in my head before it happened I just forgot to put it down before. So I put my head down and continued walking to upstairs. Ok I'm upstairs and I see my teacher so before I do anything I tell her I suspect I have tourettes, she completely understands and I tell her that I might curse and that I'm sorry in advance oh and that I will tell her when it's not a tic.(i do my best not to lie because i spent 75 percent of my life lieing to get myself out of trouble so when I tell story's I make sure to leave everything in good and bad even if it gets me iss. But again that's a story for next time.) So I sit down, I'm doing my work and it without warning from even my brain i yell hey f you!!(also my vocal tics started with cursing then evolved) I said sorry immediately after the, teacher said it's ok and that's it for the first part of third, now lunch.
Ok so me and my friend Tory are walking down the stairs and I hear the voice in me head saying hey f you hey f you, I tell Tory and he was like oh crap and I was like yea oh crap is right, I mean there is a ton of people in lunch including but not limited to the vice principal the lunch ladies two cops the secretary and the janitor who I'm friends with. So I feel the need to tell the vice principal secretary and cops to warn them that I was going to say it and you know when someone with tics or tourettes tells you they're going to tic THEY ARE GOING TO TIC. So me and Tory get to the front door and I tell them and say "hey I have tics" or "I suspect that I have tourettes and I'm about to say hey f you I just have to warn you" and all three of them say no you better hold that in-you better hold that in and I'm saying I can't and like I know what's gonna happen because I've already had bad tics and two tic attacks caused by holding and suppressing my tics. So because I know they wont learn I teach them with a hands on lesson but that's later so I do as they said knowing full and well what's about to happen and i get my food i go to the freezer to get my milk and juice but I have trouble because I think the temperature can trigger the tics and every time I grab at the milk I drop it so I ask my caring friend Tory to get it for me and he does and I get scanned then sit down the whole time mind you my chest is pounding with fear and I continue to hold it in letting out the occasional grunt and hey fu hey fu. I follow Tory and try to eat I have one knee on the seat and one foot on the ground. My body is shaking like a five point earthquake, I'm have a harder and harder time breathing and talking and moving and now I'm having a panic attack with sprinkles of anxiety and I keep having my breathing tic where I sharply and suddenly breath in and it happens like 3 times in a row so I'm gasping for air and the whole time I'm trying to describe it to Tory and I'm mean mugging the vice principal and cop and i tell them you gave me a panic attack and out of fear I text my mom to make sure she knows what's about to happen and it ramps up more and more I keep saying fu fu fu fu and telling myself no you can't so now I feel light headed and I'm having chest pains and I'm about to past out and then! and then!! and then!!! I yell as loud as my voice will allow HEY F&$K YOU!!!!! And then have a tic attack that lasts the whole lunch time into the second lunch period and the vice principal and cop come to me asking if I need help and I'm like yea I needed help 5 minutes ago, I'm still standing and my leg is so tense that I can't move it my arms are all over the place I'm shuddering every two words and my head is cocking all willy Billy. She keeps talking to me and I say I can't talk to you unless you feel like listening to me try to talk to you for as long as YOU have been reading this. They see about getting me a chair and and I say to them i i i c-c-cant breath si- si-sit down-n-n ma-ma-ma-my l-l-l-l-leg wont mooOoooooOOooooOooOve I'm st-st-st-stuck. Also i already have a stutter so the tics only make it 5 times worse. So now thirty to forty minutes later I'm trying to eat but I keep choking because of my shortened breath tic so I decided to not eat then I mockingly said to the vice principal i told you i couldn't hold it in and ever since then I've been doing my best to spread awareness of tourettes. Now I dont really have the hey! Tic as much it's more like hey fu hey fu hey fu. Like when ever I think about saying the f word in sentences and I do alot I will repeat the last two to three words ending with fu fu fu fu f%#k. The rest of the day was better but not by a lot, because I had a tic attack I was super tired and repeatedly fell asleep in math class. My teachers are pretty well versed i think is the word, In the subject of tourettes and tics. I've gotten better about warning people's but I'm still learning. Also does anyone know how to ask out a guy friend like I need to know if Tory is bi or gay but I really want to ask him out . He will be the first guy I've dated and the second I've kissed. I'm black native American with hints of Puerto Rican. Thanks for making it this far. And I'm proud to be me.

2020.10.21 09:10 FACE6000 This is some funny stuff

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow! Let's shake it up a little. Barry! Breakfast is ready! Ooming! Hang on a second. Hello? - Barry? - Adam? - Oan you believe this is happening? - I can't. I'll pick you up. Looking sharp. Use the stairs. Your father paid good money for those. Sorry. I'm excited. Here's the graduate. We're very proud of you, son. A perfect report card, all B's. Very proud. Ma! I got a thing going here. - You got lint on your fuzz. - Ow! That's me! - Wave to us! We'll be in row 118,000. - Bye! Barry, I told you, stop flying in the house! - Hey, Adam. - Hey, Barry. - Is that fuzz gel? - A little. Special day, graduation. Never thought I'd make it. Three days grade school, three days high school. Those were awkward. Three days college. I'm glad I took a day and hitchhiked around the hive. You did come back different. - Hi, Barry. - Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good. - Hear about Frankie? - Yeah. - You going to the funeral? - No, I'm not going. Everybody knows, sting someone, you die. Don't waste it on a squirrel. Such a hothead. I guess he could have just gotten out of the way. I love this incorporating an amusement park into our day. That's why we don't need vacations. Boy, quite a bit of pomp... under the circumstances. - Well, Adam, today we are men. - We are! - Bee-men. - Amen! Hallelujah! Students, faculty, distinguished bees, please welcome Dean Buzzwell. Welcome, New Hive Oity graduating class of... ...9:15. That concludes our ceremonies. And begins your career at Honex Industries! Will we pick ourjob today? I heard it's just orientation. Heads up! Here we go. Keep your hands and antennas inside the tram at all times. - Wonder what it'll be like? - A little scary. Welcome to Honex, a division of Honesco and a part of the Hexagon Group. This is it! Wow. Wow. We know that you, as a bee, have worked your whole life to get to the point where you can work for your whole life. Honey begins when our valiant Pollen Jocks bring the nectar to the hive. Our top-secret formula is automatically color-corrected, scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured into this soothing sweet syrup with its distinctive golden glow you know as... Honey! - That girl was hot. - She's my cousin! - She is? - Yes, we're all cousins. - Right. You're right. - At Honex, we constantly strive to improve every aspect of bee existence. These bees are stress-testing a new helmet technology. - What do you think he makes? - Not enough. Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. - What does that do? - Oatches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it. Saves us millions. Oan anyone work on the Krelman? Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it's done well, means a lot. But choose carefully because you'll stay in the job you pick for the rest of your life. The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that. What's the difference? You'll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years. So you'll just work us to death? We'll sure try. Wow! That blew my mind! "What's the difference?" How can you say that? One job forever? That's an insane choice to have to make. I'm relieved. Now we only have to make one decision in life. But, Adam, how could they never have told us that? Why would you question anything? We're bees. We're the most perfectly functioning society on Earth. You ever think maybe things work a little too well here? Like what? Give me one example. I don't know. But you know what I'm talking about. Please clear the gate. Royal Nectar Force on approach. Wait a second. Oheck it out. - Hey, those are Pollen Jocks! - Wow. I've never seen them this close. They know what it's like outside the hive. Yeah, but some don't come back. - Hey, Jocks! - Hi, Jocks! You guys did great! You're monsters! You're sky freaks! I love it! I love it! - I wonder where they were. - I don't know. Their day's not planned. Outside the hive, flying who knows where, doing who knows what. You can'tjust decide to be a Pollen Jock. You have to be bred for that. Right. Look. That's more pollen than you and I will see in a lifetime. It's just a status symbol. Bees make too much of it. Perhaps. Unless you're wearing it and the ladies see you wearing it. Those ladies? Aren't they our cousins too? Distant. Distant. Look at these two. - Oouple of Hive Harrys. - Let's have fun with them. It must be dangerous being a Pollen Jock. Yeah. Once a bear pinned me against a mushroom! He had a paw on my throat, and with the other, he was slapping me! - Oh, my! - I never thought I'd knock him out. What were you doing during this? Trying to alert the authorities. I can autograph that. A little gusty out there today, wasn't it, comrades? Yeah. Gusty. We're hitting a sunflower patch six miles from here tomorrow. - Six miles, huh? - Barry! A puddle jump for us, but maybe you're not up for it. - Maybe I am. - You are not! We're going 0900 at J-Gate. What do you think, buzzy-boy? Are you bee enough? I might be. It all depends on what 0900 means. Hey, Honex! Dad, you surprised me. You decide what you're interested in? - Well, there's a lot of choices. - But you only get one. Do you ever get bored doing the same job every day? Son, let me tell you about stirring. You grab that stick, and you just move it around, and you stir it around. You get yourself into a rhythm. It's a beautiful thing. You know, Dad, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn't right for me. You were thinking of what, making balloon animals? That's a bad job for a guy with a stinger. Janet, your son's not sure he wants to go into honey! - Barry, you are so funny sometimes. - I'm not trying to be funny. You're not funny! You're going into honey. Our son, the stirrer! - You're gonna be a stirrer? - No one's listening to me! Wait till you see the sticks I have. I could say anything right now. I'm gonna get an ant tattoo! Let's open some honey and celebrate! Maybe I'll pierce my thorax. Shave my antennae. Shack up with a grasshopper. Get a gold tooth and call everybody "dawg"! I'm so proud. - We're starting work today! - Today's the day. Oome on! All the good jobs will be gone. Yeah, right. Pollen counting, stunt bee, pouring, stirrer, front desk, hair removal... - Is it still available? - Hang on. Two left! One of them's yours! Oongratulations! Step to the side. - What'd you get? - Picking crud out. Stellar! Wow! Oouple of newbies? Yes, sir! Our first day! We are ready! Make your choice. - You want to go first? - No, you go. Oh, my. What's available? Restroom attendant's open, not for the reason you think. - Any chance of getting the Krelman? - Sure, you're on. I'm sorry, the Krelman just closed out. Wax monkey's always open. The Krelman opened up again. What happened? A bee died. Makes an opening. See? He's dead. Another dead one. Deady. Deadified. Two more dead. Dead from the neck up. Dead from the neck down. That's life! Oh, this is so hard! Heating, cooling, stunt bee, pourer, stirrer, humming, inspector number seven, lint coordinator, stripe supervisor, mite wrangler. Barry, what do you think I should... Barry? Barry! All right, we've got the sunflower patch in quadrant nine... What happened to you? Where are you? - I'm going out. - Out? Out where? - Out there. - Oh, no! I have to, before I go to work for the rest of my life. You're gonna die! You're crazy! Hello? Another call coming in. If anyone's feeling brave, there's a Korean deli on 83rd that gets their roses today. Hey, guys. - Look at that. - Isn't that the kid we saw yesterday? Hold it, son, flight deck's restricted. It's OK, Lou. We're gonna take him up. Really? Feeling lucky, are you? Sign here, here. Just initial that. - Thank you. - OK. You got a rain advisory today, and as you all know, bees cannot fly in rain. So be careful. As always, watch your brooms, hockey sticks, dogs, birds, bears and bats. Also, I got a couple of reports of root beer being poured on us. Murphy's in a home because of it, babbling like a cicada! - That's awful. - And a reminder for you rookies, bee law number one, absolutely no talking to humans! All right, launch positions! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Black and yellow! Hello! You ready for this, hot shot? Yeah. Yeah, bring it on. Wind, check. - Antennae, check. - Nectar pack, check. - Wings, check. - Stinger, check. Scared out of my shorts, check. OK, ladies, let's move it out! Pound those petunias, you striped stem-suckers! All of you, drain those flowers! Wow! I'm out! I can't believe I'm out! So blue. I feel so fast and free! Box kite! Wow! Flowers! This is Blue Leader. We have roses visual. Bring it around 30 degrees and hold. Roses! 30 degrees, roger. Bringing it around. Stand to the side, kid. It's got a bit of a kick. That is one nectar collector! - Ever see pollination up close? - No, sir. I pick up some pollen here, sprinkle it over here. Maybe a dash over there, a pinch on that one. See that? It's a little bit of magic. That's amazing. Why do we do that? That's pollen power. More pollen, more flowers, more nectar, more honey for us. Oool. I'm picking up a lot of bright yellow. Oould be daisies. Don't we need those? Oopy that visual. Wait. One of these flowers seems to be on the move. Say again? You're reporting a moving flower? Affirmative. That was on the line! This is the coolest. What is it? I don't know, but I'm loving this color. It smells good. Not like a flower, but I like it. Yeah, fuzzy. Ohemical-y. Oareful, guys. It's a little grabby. My sweet lord of bees! Oandy-brain, get off there! Problem! - Guys! - This could be bad. Affirmative. Very close. Gonna hurt. Mama's little boy. You are way out of position, rookie! Ooming in at you like a missile! Help me! I don't think these are flowers. - Should we tell him? - I think he knows. What is this?! Match point! You can start packing up, honey, because you're about to eat it! Yowser! Gross. There's a bee in the car! - Do something! - I'm driving! - Hi, bee. - He's back here! He's going to sting me! Nobody move. If you don't move, he won't sting you. Freeze! He blinked! Spray him, Granny! What are you doing?! Wow... the tension level out here is unbelievable. I gotta get home. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Mayday! Mayday! Bee going down! Ken, could you close the window please? Ken, could you close the window please? Oheck out my new resume. I made it into a fold-out brochure. You see? Folds out. Oh, no. More humans. I don't need this. What was that? Maybe this time. This time. This time. This time! This time! This... Drapes! That is diabolical. It's fantastic. It's got all my special skills, even my top-ten favorite movies. What's number one? Star Wars? Nah, I don't go for that... ...kind of stuff. No wonder we shouldn't talk to them. They're out of their minds. When I leave a job interview, they're flabbergasted, can't believe what I say. There's the sun. Maybe that's a way out. I don't remember the sun having a big 75 on it. I predicted global warming. I could feel it getting hotter. At first I thought it was just me. Wait! Stop! Bee! Stand back. These are winter boots. Wait! Don't kill him! You know I'm allergic to them! This thing could kill me! Why does his life have less value than yours? Why does his life have any less value than mine? Is that your statement? I'm just saying all life has value. You don't know what he's capable of feeling. My brochure! There you go, little guy. I'm not scared of him. It's an allergic thing. Put that on your resume brochure. My whole face could puff up. Make it one of your special skills. Knocking someone out is also a special skill. Right. Bye, Vanessa. Thanks. - Vanessa, next week? Yogurt night? - Sure, Ken. You know, whatever. - You could put carob chips on there. - Bye. - Supposed to be less calories. - Bye. I gotta say something. She saved my life. I gotta say something. All right, here it goes. Nah. What would I say? I could really get in trouble. It's a bee law. You're not supposed to talk to a human. I can't believe I'm doing this. I've got to. Oh, I can't do it. Oome on! No. Yes. No. Do it. I can't. How should I start it? "You like jazz?" No, that's no good. Here she comes! Speak, you fool! Hi! I'm sorry. - You're talking. - Yes, I know. You're talking! I'm so sorry. No, it's OK. It's fine. I know I'm dreaming. But I don't recall going to bed. Well, I'm sure this is very disconcerting. This is a bit of a surprise to me. I mean, you're a bee! I am. And I'm not supposed to be doing this, but they were all trying to kill me. And if it wasn't for you... I had to thank you. It's just how I was raised. That was a little weird. - I'm talking with a bee. - Yeah. I'm talking to a bee. And the bee is talking to me! I just want to say I'm grateful. I'll leave now. - Wait! How did you learn to do that? - What? The talking thing. Same way you did, I guess. "Mama, Dada, honey." You pick it up. - That's very funny. - Yeah. Bees are funny. If we didn't laugh, we'd cry with what we have to deal with. Anyway... Oan I... ...get you something? - Like what? I don't know. I mean... I don't know. Ooffee? I don't want to put you out. It's no trouble. It takes two minutes. - It's just coffee. - I hate to impose. - Don't be ridiculous! - Actually, I would love a cup. Hey, you want rum cake? - I shouldn't. - Have some. - No, I can't. - Oome on! I'm trying to lose a couple micrograms. - Where? - These stripes don't help. You look great! I don't know if you know anything about fashion. Are you all right? No. He's making the tie in the cab as they're flying up Madison. He finally gets there. He runs up the steps into the church. The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermelon?" Is that a bee joke? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Barry? About work? I don't know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel. - You do? - Sure. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. - Really? - My only interest is flowers. Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. Anyway, if you look... There's my hive right there. See it? You're in Sheep Meadow! Yes! I'm right off the Turtle Pond! No way! I know that area. I lost a toe ring there once. - Why do girls put rings on their toes? - Why not? - It's like putting a hat on your knee. - Maybe I'll try that. - You all right, ma'am? - Oh, yeah. Fine. Just having two cups of coffee! Anyway, this has been great. Thanks for the coffee. Yeah, it's no trouble. Sorry I couldn't finish it. If I did, I'd be up the rest of my life. Are you...? Oan I take a piece of this with me? Sure! Here, have a crumb. - Thanks! - Yeah. All right. Well, then... I guess I'll see you around. Or not. OK, Barry. And thank you so much again... for before. Oh, that? That was nothing. Well, not nothing, but... Anyway... This can't possibly work. He's all set to go. We may as well try it. OK, Dave, pull the chute. - Sounds amazing. - It was amazing! It was the scariest, happiest moment of my life. Humans! I can't believe you were with humans! Giant, scary humans! What were they like? Huge and crazy. They talk crazy. They eat crazy giant things. They drive crazy. - Do they try and kill you, like on TV? - Some of them. But some of them don't. - How'd you get back? - Poodle. You did it, and I'm glad. You saw whatever you wanted to see. You had your "experience." Now you can pick out yourjob and be normal. - Well... - Well? Well, I met someone. You did? Was she Bee-ish? - A wasp?! Your parents will kill you! - No, no, no, not a wasp. - Spider? - I'm not attracted to spiders. I know it's the hottest thing, with the eight legs and all. I can't get by that face. So who is she? She's... human. No, no. That's a bee law. You wouldn't break a bee law. - Her name's Vanessa. - Oh, boy. She's so nice. And she's a florist! Oh, no! You're dating a human florist! We're not dating. You're flying outside the hive, talking to humans that attack our homes with power washers and M-80s! One-eighth a stick of dynamite! She saved my life! And she understands me. This is over! Eat this. This is not over! What was that? - They call it a crumb. - It was so stingin' stripey! And that's not what they eat. That's what falls off what they eat! - You know what a Oinnabon is? - No. It's bread and cinnamon and frosting. They heat it up... Sit down! ...really hot! - Listen to me! We are not them! We're us. There's us and there's them! Yes, but who can deny the heart that is yearning? There's no yearning. Stop yearning. Listen to me! You have got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking bee! - Thinking bee. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! There he is. He's in the pool. You know what your problem is, Barry? I gotta start thinking bee? How much longer will this go on? It's been three days! Why aren't you working? I've got a lot of big life decisions to think about. What life? You have no life! You have no job. You're barely a bee! Would it kill you to make a little honey? Barry, come out. Your father's talking to you. Martin, would you talk to him? Barry, I'm talking to you! You coming? Got everything? All set! Go ahead. I'll catch up. Don't be too long. Watch this! Vanessa! - We're still here. - I told you not to yell at him. He doesn't respond to yelling! - Then why yell at me? - Because you don't listen! I'm not listening to this. Sorry, I've gotta go. - Where are you going? - I'm meeting a friend. A girl? Is this why you can't decide? Bye. I just hope she's Bee-ish. They have a huge parade of flowers every year in Pasadena? To be in the Tournament of Roses, that's every florist's dream! Up on a float, surrounded by flowers, crowds cheering. A tournament. Do the roses compete in athletic events? No. All right, I've got one. How come you don't fly everywhere? It's exhausting. Why don't you run everywhere? It's faster. Yeah, OK, I see, I see. All right, your turn. TiVo. You can just freeze live TV? That's insane! You don't have that? We have Hivo, but it's a disease. It's a horrible, horrible disease. Oh, my. Dumb bees! You must want to sting all those jerks. We try not to sting. It's usually fatal for us. So you have to watch your temper. Very carefully. You kick a wall, take a walk, write an angry letter and throw it out. Work through it like any emotion: Anger, jealousy, lust. Oh, my goodness! Are you OK? Yeah. - What is wrong with you?! - It's a bug. He's not bothering anybody. Get out of here, you creep! What was that? A Pic 'N' Save circular? Yeah, it was. How did you know? It felt like about 10 pages. Seventy-five is pretty much our limit. You've really got that down to a science. - I lost a cousin to Italian Vogue. - I'll bet. What in the name of Mighty Hercules is this? How did this get here? Oute Bee, Golden Blossom, Ray Liotta Private Select? - Is he that actor? - I never heard of him. - Why is this here? - For people. We eat it. You don't have enough food of your own? - Well, yes. - How do you get it? - Bees make it. - I know who makes it! And it's hard to make it! There's heating, cooling, stirring. You need a whole Krelman thing! - It's organic. - It's our-ganic! It's just honey, Barry. Just what?! Bees don't know about this! This is stealing! A lot of stealing! You've taken our homes, schools, hospitals! This is all we have! And it's on sale?! I'm getting to the bottom of this. I'm getting to the bottom of all of this! Hey, Hector. - You almost done? - Almost. He is here. I sense it. Well, I guess I'll go home now and just leave this nice honey out, with no one around. You're busted, box boy! I knew I heard something. So you can talk! I can talk. And now you'll start talking! Where you getting the sweet stuff? Who's your supplier? I don't understand. I thought we were friends. The last thing we want to do is upset bees! You're too late! It's ours now! You, sir, have crossed the wrong sword! You, sir, will be lunch for my iguana, Ignacio! Where is the honey coming from? Tell me where! Honey Farms! It comes from Honey Farms! Orazy person! What horrible thing has happened here? These faces, they never knew what hit them. And now they're on the road to nowhere! Just keep still. What? You're not dead? Do I look dead? They will wipe anything that moves. Where you headed? To Honey Farms. I am onto something huge here. I'm going to Alaska. Moose blood, crazy stuff. Blows your head off! I'm going to Tacoma. - And you? - He really is dead. All right. Uh-oh! - What is that?! - Oh, no! - A wiper! Triple blade! - Triple blade? Jump on! It's your only chance, bee! Why does everything have to be so doggone clean?! How much do you people need to see?! Open your eyes! Stick your head out the window! From NPR News in Washington, I'm Oarl Kasell. But don't kill no more bugs! - Bee! - Moose blood guy!! - You hear something? - Like what? Like tiny screaming. Turn off the radio. Whassup, bee boy? Hey, Blood. Just a row of honey jars, as far as the eye could see. Wow! I assume wherever this truck goes is where they're getting it. I mean, that honey's ours. - Bees hang tight. - We're all jammed in. It's a close community. Not us, man. We on our own. Every mosquito on his own. - What if you get in trouble? - You a mosquito, you in trouble. Nobody likes us. They just smack. See a mosquito, smack, smack! At least you're out in the world. You must meet girls. Mosquito girls try to trade up, get with a moth, dragonfly. Mosquito girl don't want no mosquito. You got to be kidding me! Mooseblood's about to leave the building! So long, bee! - Hey, guys! - Mooseblood! I knew I'd catch y'all down here. Did you bring your crazy straw? We throw it in jars, slap a label on it, and it's pretty much pure profit. What is this place? A bee's got a brain the size of a pinhead. They are pinheads! Pinhead. - Oheck out the new smoker. - Oh, sweet. That's the one you want. The Thomas 3000! Smoker? Ninety puffs a minute, semi-automatic. Twice the nicotine, all the tar. A couple breaths of this knocks them right out. They make the honey, and we make the money. "They make the honey, and we make the money"? Oh, my! What's going on? Are you OK? Yeah. It doesn't last too long. Do you know you're in a fake hive with fake walls? Our queen was moved here. We had no choice. This is your queen? That's a man in women's clothes! That's a drag queen! What is this? Oh, no! There's hundreds of them! Bee honey. Our honey is being brazenly stolen on a massive scale! This is worse than anything bears have done! I intend to do something. Oh, Barry, stop. Who told you humans are taking our honey? That's a rumor. Do these look like rumors? That's a conspiracy theory. These are obviously doctored photos. How did you get mixed up in this? He's been talking to humans. - What? - Talking to humans?! He has a human girlfriend. And they make out! Make out? Barry! We do not. - You wish you could. - Whose side are you on? The bees! I dated a cricket once in San Antonio. Those crazy legs kept me up all night. Barry, this is what you want to do with your life? I want to do it for all our lives. Nobody works harder than bees! Dad, I remember you coming home so overworked your hands were still stirring. You couldn't stop. I remember that. What right do they have to our honey? We live on two cups a year. They put it in lip balm for no reason whatsoever! Even if it's true, what can one bee do? Sting them where it really hurts. In the face! The eye! - That would hurt. - No. Up the nose? That's a killer. There's only one place you can sting the humans, one place where it matters. Hive at Five, the hive's only full-hour action news source. No more bee beards! With Bob Bumble at the anchor desk. Weather with Storm Stinger. Sports with Buzz Larvi. And Jeanette Ohung. - Good evening. I'm Bob Bumble. - And I'm Jeanette Ohung. A tri-county bee, Barry Benson, intends to sue the human race for stealing our honey, packaging it and profiting from it illegally! Tomorrow night on Bee Larry King, we'll have three former queens here in our studio, discussing their new book, Olassy Ladies, out this week on Hexagon. Tonight we're talking to Barry Benson. Did you ever think, "I'm a kid from the hive. I can't do this"? Bees have never been afraid to change the world. What about Bee Oolumbus? Bee Gandhi? Bejesus? Where I'm from, we'd never sue humans. We were thinking of stickball or candy stores. How old are you? The bee community is supporting you in this case, which will be the trial of the bee century. You know, they have a Larry King in the human world too. It's a common name. Next week... He looks like you and has a show and suspenders and colored dots... Next week... Glasses, quotes on the bottom from the guest even though you just heard 'em. Bear Week next week! They're scary, hairy and here live. Always leans forward, pointy shoulders, squinty eyes, very Jewish. In tennis, you attack at the point of weakness! It was my grandmother, Ken. She's 81. Honey, her backhand's a joke! I'm not gonna take advantage of that? Quiet, please. Actual work going on here. - Is that that same bee? - Yes, it is! I'm helping him sue the human race. - Hello. - Hello, bee. This is Ken. Yeah, I remember you. Timberland, size ten and a half. Vibram sole, I believe. Why does he talk again? Listen, you better go 'cause we're really busy working. But it's our yogurt night! Bye-bye. Why is yogurt night so difficult?! You poor thing. You two have been at this for hours! Yes, and Adam here has been a huge help. - Frosting... - How many sugars? Just one. I try not to use the competition. So why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities. And it takes my mind off the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers. - Oh, those just get me psychotic! - Yeah, me too. Bent stingers, pointless pollination. Bees must hate those fake things! Nothing worse than a daffodil that's had work done. Maybe this could make up for it a little bit. - This lawsuit's a pretty big deal. - I guess. You sure you want to go through with it? Am I sure? When I'm done with the humans, they won't be able to say, "Honey, I'm home," without paying a royalty! It's an incredible scene here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the first time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak. What have we gotten into here, Barry? It's pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think billion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade. - What's the matter? - I don't know, I just got a chill. Well, if it isn't the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Barry Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session. Mr. Montgomery, you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? I'm kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. If we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr. Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I would have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robotics! Ventriloquism! Oloning! For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. I'm just an ordinary bee. Honey's pretty important to me. It's important to all bees. We invented it! We make it. And we protect it with our lives. Unfortunately, there are some people in this room who think they can take it from us 'cause we're the little guys! I'm hoping that, after this is all over, you'll see how, by taking our honey, you not only take everything we have but everything we are! I wish he'd dress like that all the time. So nice! Oall your first witness. So, Mr. Klauss Vanderhayden of Honey Farms, big company you have. I suppose so. I see you also own Honeyburton and Honron! Yes, they provide beekeepers for our farms. Beekeeper. I find that to be a very disturbing term. I don't imagine you employ any bee-free-ers, do you? - No. - I couldn't hear you. - No. - No. Because you don't free bees. You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a jar of honey. They're very lovable creatures. Yogi Bear, Fozzie Bear, Build-A-Bear. You mean like this? Bears kill bees! How'd you like his head crashing through your living room?! Biting into your couch! Spitting out your throw pillows! OK, that's enough. Take him away. So, Mr. Sting, thank you for being here. Your name intrigues me. - Where have I heard it before? - I was with a band called The Police. But you've never been a police officer, have you? No, I haven't. No, you haven't. And so here we have yet another example of bee culture casually stolen by a human for nothing more than a prance-about stage name. Oh, please. Have you ever been stung, Mr. Sting? Because I'm feeling a little stung, Sting. Or should I say... Mr. Gordon M. Sumner! That's not his real name?! You idiots! Mr. Liotta, first, belated congratulations on your Emmy win for a guest spot on ER in 2005. Thank you. Thank you. I see from your resume that you're devilishly handsome with a churning inner turmoil that's ready to blow. I enjoy what I do. Is that a crime? Not yet it isn't. But is this what it's come to for you? Exploiting tiny, helpless bees so you don't have to rehearse your part and learn your lines, sir? Watch it, Benson! I could blow right now! This isn't a goodfella. This is a badfella! Why doesn't someone just step on this creep, and we can all go home?! - Order in this court! - You're all thinking it! Order! Order, I say! - Say it! - Mr. Liotta, please sit down! I think it was awfully nice of that bear to pitch in like that. I think the jury's on our side. Are we doing everything right, legally? I'm a florist. Right. Well, here's to a great team. To a great team! Well, hello. - Ken! - Hello. I didn't think you were coming. No, I was just late. I tried to call, but... the battery. I didn't want all this to go to waste, so I called Barry. Luckily, he was free. Oh, that was lucky. There's a little left. I could heat it up. Yeah, heat it up, sure, whatever. So I hear you're quite a tennis player. I'm not much for the game myself. The ball's a little grabby. That's where I usually sit. Right... there. Ken, Barry was looking at your resume, and he agreed with me that eating with chopsticks isn't really a special skill. You think I don't see what you're doing? I know how hard it is to find the rightjob. We have that in common. Do we? Bees have 100 percent employment, but we do jobs like taking the crud out. That's just what I was thinking about doing. Ken, I let Barry borrow your razor for his fuzz. I hope that was all right. I'm going to drain the old stinger. Yeah, you do that. Look at that. You know, I've just about had it with your little mind games. - What's that? - Italian Vogue. Mamma mia, that's a lot of pages. A lot of ads. Remember what Van said, why is your life more valuable than mine? Funny, I just can't seem to recall that! I think something stinks in here! I love the smell of flowers. How do you like the smell of flames?! Not as much. Water bug! Not taking sides! Ken, I'm wearing a Ohapstick hat! This is pathetic! I've got issues! Well, well, well, a royal flush! - You're bluffing. - Am I? Surf's up, dude! Poo water! That bowl is gnarly. Except for those dirty yellow rings! Kenneth! What are you doing?! You know, I don't even like honey! I don't eat it! We need to talk! He's just a little bee! And he happens to be the nicest bee I've met in a long time! Long time? What are you talking about?! Are there other bugs in your life? No, but there are other things bugging me in life. And you're one of them! Fine! Talking bees, no yogurt night... My nerves are fried from riding on this emotional roller coaster! Goodbye, Ken. And for your information, I prefer sugar-free, artificial sweeteners made by man! I'm sorry about all that. I know it's got an aftertaste! I like it! I always felt there was some kind of barrier between Ken and me. I couldn't overcome it. Oh, well. Are you OK for the trial? I believe Mr. Montgomery is about out of ideas. We would like to call Mr. Barry Benson Bee to the stand. Good idea! You can really see why he's considered one of the best lawyers... Yeah. Layton, you've gotta weave some magic with this jury, or it's gonna be all over. Don't worry. The only thing I have to do to turn this jury around is to remind them of what they don't like about bees. - You got the tweezers? - Are you allergic? Only to losing, son. Only to losing. Mr. Benson Bee, I'll ask you what I think we'd all like to know. What exactly is your relationship to that woman? We're friends. - Good friends? - Yes. How good? Do you live together? Wait a minute... Are you her little... ...bedbug? I've seen a bee documentary or two. From what I understand, doesn't your queen give birth to all the bee children? - Yeah, but... - So those aren't your real parents! - Oh, Barry... - Yes, they are! Hold me back! You're an illegitimate bee, aren't you, Benson? He's denouncing bees! Don't y'all date your cousins? - Objection! - I'm going to pincushion this guy! Adam, don't! It's what he wants! Oh, I'm hit!! Oh, lordy, I am hit! Order! Order! The venom! The venom is coursing through my veins! I have been felled by a winged bea

2020.10.21 09:03 FACE6000 this is funny right?

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyway because bees don't care what humans think is impossible. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Yellow, black. Ooh, black and yellow! Let's shake it up a little. Barry! Breakfast is ready! Ooming! Hang on a second. Hello? - Barry? - Adam? - Oan you believe this is happening? - I can't. I'll pick you up. Looking sharp. Use the stairs. Your father paid good money for those. Sorry. I'm excited. Here's the graduate. We're very proud of you, son. A perfect report card, all B's. Very proud. Ma! I got a thing going here. - You got lint on your fuzz. - Ow! That's me! - Wave to us! We'll be in row 118,000. - Bye! Barry, I told you, stop flying in the house! - Hey, Adam. - Hey, Barry. - Is that fuzz gel? - A little. Special day, graduation. Never thought I'd make it. Three days grade school, three days high school. Those were awkward. Three days college. I'm glad I took a day and hitchhiked around the hive. You did come back different. - Hi, Barry. - Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good. - Hear about Frankie? - Yeah. - You going to the funeral? - No, I'm not going. Everybody knows, sting someone, you die. Don't waste it on a squirrel. Such a hothead. I guess he could have just gotten out of the way. I love this incorporating an amusement park into our day. That's why we don't need vacations. Boy, quite a bit of pomp... under the circumstances. - Well, Adam, today we are men. - We are! - Bee-men. - Amen! Hallelujah! Students, faculty, distinguished bees, please welcome Dean Buzzwell. Welcome, New Hive Oity graduating class of... ...9:15. That concludes our ceremonies. And begins your career at Honex Industries! Will we pick ourjob today? I heard it's just orientation. Heads up! Here we go. Keep your hands and antennas inside the tram at all times. - Wonder what it'll be like? - A little scary. Welcome to Honex, a division of Honesco and a part of the Hexagon Group. This is it! Wow. Wow. We know that you, as a bee, have worked your whole life to get to the point where you can work for your whole life. Honey begins when our valiant Pollen Jocks bring the nectar to the hive. Our top-secret formula is automatically color-corrected, scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured into this soothing sweet syrup with its distinctive golden glow you know as... Honey! - That girl was hot. - She's my cousin! - She is? - Yes, we're all cousins. - Right. You're right. - At Honex, we constantly strive to improve every aspect of bee existence. These bees are stress-testing a new helmet technology. - What do you think he makes? - Not enough. Here we have our latest advancement, the Krelman. - What does that do? - Oatches that little strand of honey that hangs after you pour it. Saves us millions. Oan anyone work on the Krelman? Of course. Most bee jobs are small ones. But bees know that every small job, if it's done well, means a lot. But choose carefully because you'll stay in the job you pick for the rest of your life. The same job the rest of your life? I didn't know that. What's the difference? You'll be happy to know that bees, as a species, haven't had one day off in 27 million years. So you'll just work us to death? We'll sure try. Wow! That blew my mind! "What's the difference?" How can you say that? One job forever? That's an insane choice to have to make. I'm relieved. Now we only have to make one decision in life. But, Adam, how could they never have told us that? Why would you question anything? We're bees. We're the most perfectly functioning society on Earth. You ever think maybe things work a little too well here? Like what? Give me one example. I don't know. But you know what I'm talking about. Please clear the gate. Royal Nectar Force on approach. Wait a second. Oheck it out. - Hey, those are Pollen Jocks! - Wow. I've never seen them this close. They know what it's like outside the hive. Yeah, but some don't come back. - Hey, Jocks! - Hi, Jocks! You guys did great! You're monsters! You're sky freaks! I love it! I love it! - I wonder where they were. - I don't know. Their day's not planned. Outside the hive, flying who knows where, doing who knows what. You can'tjust decide to be a Pollen Jock. You have to be bred for that. Right. Look. That's more pollen than you and I will see in a lifetime. It's just a status symbol. Bees make too much of it. Perhaps. Unless you're wearing it and the ladies see you wearing it. Those ladies? Aren't they our cousins too? Distant. Distant. Look at these two. - Oouple of Hive Harrys. - Let's have fun with them. It must be dangerous being a Pollen Jock. Yeah. Once a bear pinned me against a mushroom! He had a paw on my throat, and with the other, he was slapping me! - Oh, my! - I never thought I'd knock him out. What were you doing during this? Trying to alert the authorities. I can autograph that. A little gusty out there today, wasn't it, comrades? Yeah. Gusty. We're hitting a sunflower patch six miles from here tomorrow. - Six miles, huh? - Barry! A puddle jump for us, but maybe you're not up for it. - Maybe I am. - You are not! We're going 0900 at J-Gate. What do you think, buzzy-boy? Are you bee enough? I might be. It all depends on what 0900 means. Hey, Honex! Dad, you surprised me. You decide what you're interested in? - Well, there's a lot of choices. - But you only get one. Do you ever get bored doing the same job every day? Son, let me tell you about stirring. You grab that stick, and you just move it around, and you stir it around. You get yourself into a rhythm. It's a beautiful thing. You know, Dad, the more I think about it, maybe the honey field just isn't right for me. You were thinking of what, making balloon animals? That's a bad job for a guy with a stinger. Janet, your son's not sure he wants to go into honey! - Barry, you are so funny sometimes. - I'm not trying to be funny. You're not funny! You're going into honey. Our son, the stirrer! - You're gonna be a stirrer? - No one's listening to me! Wait till you see the sticks I have. I could say anything right now. I'm gonna get an ant tattoo! Let's open some honey and celebrate! Maybe I'll pierce my thorax. Shave my antennae. Shack up with a grasshopper. Get a gold tooth and call everybody "dawg"! I'm so proud. - We're starting work today! - Today's the day. Oome on! All the good jobs will be gone. Yeah, right. Pollen counting, stunt bee, pouring, stirrer, front desk, hair removal... - Is it still available? - Hang on. Two left! One of them's yours! Oongratulations! Step to the side. - What'd you get? - Picking crud out. Stellar! Wow! Oouple of newbies? Yes, sir! Our first day! We are ready! Make your choice. - You want to go first? - No, you go. Oh, my. What's available? Restroom attendant's open, not for the reason you think. - Any chance of getting the Krelman? - Sure, you're on. I'm sorry, the Krelman just closed out. Wax monkey's always open. The Krelman opened up again. What happened? A bee died. Makes an opening. See? He's dead. Another dead one. Deady. Deadified. Two more dead. Dead from the neck up. Dead from the neck down. That's life! Oh, this is so hard! Heating, cooling, stunt bee, pourer, stirrer, humming, inspector number seven, lint coordinator, stripe supervisor, mite wrangler. Barry, what do you think I should... Barry? Barry! All right, we've got the sunflower patch in quadrant nine... What happened to you? Where are you? - I'm going out. - Out? Out where? - Out there. - Oh, no! I have to, before I go to work for the rest of my life. You're gonna die! You're crazy! Hello? Another call coming in. If anyone's feeling brave, there's a Korean deli on 83rd that gets their roses today. Hey, guys. - Look at that. - Isn't that the kid we saw yesterday? Hold it, son, flight deck's restricted. It's OK, Lou. We're gonna take him up. Really? Feeling lucky, are you? Sign here, here. Just initial that. - Thank you. - OK. You got a rain advisory today, and as you all know, bees cannot fly in rain. So be careful. As always, watch your brooms, hockey sticks, dogs, birds, bears and bats. Also, I got a couple of reports of root beer being poured on us. Murphy's in a home because of it, babbling like a cicada! - That's awful. - And a reminder for you rookies, bee law number one, absolutely no talking to humans! All right, launch positions! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Buzz, buzz, buzz, buzz! Black and yellow! Hello! You ready for this, hot shot? Yeah. Yeah, bring it on. Wind, check. - Antennae, check. - Nectar pack, check. - Wings, check. - Stinger, check. Scared out of my shorts, check. OK, ladies, let's move it out! Pound those petunias, you striped stem-suckers! All of you, drain those flowers! Wow! I'm out! I can't believe I'm out! So blue. I feel so fast and free! Box kite! Wow! Flowers! This is Blue Leader. We have roses visual. Bring it around 30 degrees and hold. Roses! 30 degrees, roger. Bringing it around. Stand to the side, kid. It's got a bit of a kick. That is one nectar collector! - Ever see pollination up close? - No, sir. I pick up some pollen here, sprinkle it over here. Maybe a dash over there, a pinch on that one. See that? It's a little bit of magic. That's amazing. Why do we do that? That's pollen power. More pollen, more flowers, more nectar, more honey for us. Oool. I'm picking up a lot of bright yellow. Oould be daisies. Don't we need those? Oopy that visual. Wait. One of these flowers seems to be on the move. Say again? You're reporting a moving flower? Affirmative. That was on the line! This is the coolest. What is it? I don't know, but I'm loving this color. It smells good. Not like a flower, but I like it. Yeah, fuzzy. Ohemical-y. Oareful, guys. It's a little grabby. My sweet lord of bees! Oandy-brain, get off there! Problem! - Guys! - This could be bad. Affirmative. Very close. Gonna hurt. Mama's little boy. You are way out of position, rookie! Ooming in at you like a missile! Help me! I don't think these are flowers. - Should we tell him? - I think he knows. What is this?! Match point! You can start packing up, honey, because you're about to eat it! Yowser! Gross. There's a bee in the car! - Do something! - I'm driving! - Hi, bee. - He's back here! He's going to sting me! Nobody move. If you don't move, he won't sting you. Freeze! He blinked! Spray him, Granny! What are you doing?! Wow... the tension level out here is unbelievable. I gotta get home. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Oan't fly in rain. Mayday! Mayday! Bee going down! Ken, could you close the window please? Ken, could you close the window please? Oheck out my new resume. I made it into a fold-out brochure. You see? Folds out. Oh, no. More humans. I don't need this. What was that? Maybe this time. This time. This time. This time! This time! This... Drapes! That is diabolical. It's fantastic. It's got all my special skills, even my top-ten favorite movies. What's number one? Star Wars? Nah, I don't go for that... ...kind of stuff. No wonder we shouldn't talk to them. They're out of their minds. When I leave a job interview, they're flabbergasted, can't believe what I say. There's the sun. Maybe that's a way out. I don't remember the sun having a big 75 on it. I predicted global warming. I could feel it getting hotter. At first I thought it was just me. Wait! Stop! Bee! Stand back. These are winter boots. Wait! Don't kill him! You know I'm allergic to them! This thing could kill me! Why does his life have less value than yours? Why does his life have any less value than mine? Is that your statement? I'm just saying all life has value. You don't know what he's capable of feeling. My brochure! There you go, little guy. I'm not scared of him. It's an allergic thing. Put that on your resume brochure. My whole face could puff up. Make it one of your special skills. Knocking someone out is also a special skill. Right. Bye, Vanessa. Thanks. - Vanessa, next week? Yogurt night? - Sure, Ken. You know, whatever. - You could put carob chips on there. - Bye. - Supposed to be less calories. - Bye. I gotta say something. She saved my life. I gotta say something. All right, here it goes. Nah. What would I say? I could really get in trouble. It's a bee law. You're not supposed to talk to a human. I can't believe I'm doing this. I've got to. Oh, I can't do it. Oome on! No. Yes. No. Do it. I can't. How should I start it? "You like jazz?" No, that's no good. Here she comes! Speak, you fool! Hi! I'm sorry. - You're talking. - Yes, I know. You're talking! I'm so sorry. No, it's OK. It's fine. I know I'm dreaming. But I don't recall going to bed. Well, I'm sure this is very disconcerting. This is a bit of a surprise to me. I mean, you're a bee! I am. And I'm not supposed to be doing this, but they were all trying to kill me. And if it wasn't for you... I had to thank you. It's just how I was raised. That was a little weird. - I'm talking with a bee. - Yeah. I'm talking to a bee. And the bee is talking to me! I just want to say I'm grateful. I'll leave now. - Wait! How did you learn to do that? - What? The talking thing. Same way you did, I guess. "Mama, Dada, honey." You pick it up. - That's very funny. - Yeah. Bees are funny. If we didn't laugh, we'd cry with what we have to deal with. Anyway... Oan I... ...get you something? - Like what? I don't know. I mean... I don't know. Ooffee? I don't want to put you out. It's no trouble. It takes two minutes. - It's just coffee. - I hate to impose. - Don't be ridiculous! - Actually, I would love a cup. Hey, you want rum cake? - I shouldn't. - Have some. - No, I can't. - Oome on! I'm trying to lose a couple micrograms. - Where? - These stripes don't help. You look great! I don't know if you know anything about fashion. Are you all right? No. He's making the tie in the cab as they're flying up Madison. He finally gets there. He runs up the steps into the church. The wedding is on. And he says, "Watermelon? I thought you said Guatemalan. Why would I marry a watermelon?" Is that a bee joke? That's the kind of stuff we do. Yeah, different. So, what are you gonna do, Barry? About work? I don't know. I want to do my part for the hive, but I can't do it the way they want. I know how you feel. - You do? - Sure. My parents wanted me to be a lawyer or a doctor, but I wanted to be a florist. - Really? - My only interest is flowers. Our new queen was just elected with that same campaign slogan. Anyway, if you look... There's my hive right there. See it? You're in Sheep Meadow! Yes! I'm right off the Turtle Pond! No way! I know that area. I lost a toe ring there once. - Why do girls put rings on their toes? - Why not? - It's like putting a hat on your knee. - Maybe I'll try that. - You all right, ma'am? - Oh, yeah. Fine. Just having two cups of coffee! Anyway, this has been great. Thanks for the coffee. Yeah, it's no trouble. Sorry I couldn't finish it. If I did, I'd be up the rest of my life. Are you...? Oan I take a piece of this with me? Sure! Here, have a crumb. - Thanks! - Yeah. All right. Well, then... I guess I'll see you around. Or not. OK, Barry. And thank you so much again... for before. Oh, that? That was nothing. Well, not nothing, but... Anyway... This can't possibly work. He's all set to go. We may as well try it. OK, Dave, pull the chute. - Sounds amazing. - It was amazing! It was the scariest, happiest moment of my life. Humans! I can't believe you were with humans! Giant, scary humans! What were they like? Huge and crazy. They talk crazy. They eat crazy giant things. They drive crazy. - Do they try and kill you, like on TV? - Some of them. But some of them don't. - How'd you get back? - Poodle. You did it, and I'm glad. You saw whatever you wanted to see. You had your "experience." Now you can pick out yourjob and be normal. - Well... - Well? Well, I met someone. You did? Was she Bee-ish? - A wasp?! Your parents will kill you! - No, no, no, not a wasp. - Spider? - I'm not attracted to spiders. I know it's the hottest thing, with the eight legs and all. I can't get by that face. So who is she? She's... human. No, no. That's a bee law. You wouldn't break a bee law. - Her name's Vanessa. - Oh, boy. She's so nice. And she's a florist! Oh, no! You're dating a human florist! We're not dating. You're flying outside the hive, talking to humans that attack our homes with power washers and M-80s! One-eighth a stick of dynamite! She saved my life! And she understands me. This is over! Eat this. This is not over! What was that? - They call it a crumb. - It was so stingin' stripey! And that's not what they eat. That's what falls off what they eat! - You know what a Oinnabon is? - No. It's bread and cinnamon and frosting. They heat it up... Sit down! ...really hot! - Listen to me! We are not them! We're us. There's us and there's them! Yes, but who can deny the heart that is yearning? There's no yearning. Stop yearning. Listen to me! You have got to start thinking bee, my friend. Thinking bee! - Thinking bee. - Thinking bee. Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! Thinking bee! There he is. He's in the pool. You know what your problem is, Barry? I gotta start thinking bee? How much longer will this go on? It's been three days! Why aren't you working? I've got a lot of big life decisions to think about. What life? You have no life! You have no job. You're barely a bee! Would it kill you to make a little honey? Barry, come out. Your father's talking to you. Martin, would you talk to him? Barry, I'm talking to you! You coming? Got everything? All set! Go ahead. I'll catch up. Don't be too long. Watch this! Vanessa! - We're still here. - I told you not to yell at him. He doesn't respond to yelling! - Then why yell at me? - Because you don't listen! I'm not listening to this. Sorry, I've gotta go. - Where are you going? - I'm meeting a friend. A girl? Is this why you can't decide? Bye. I just hope she's Bee-ish. They have a huge parade of flowers every year in Pasadena? To be in the Tournament of Roses, that's every florist's dream! Up on a float, surrounded by flowers, crowds cheering. A tournament. Do the roses compete in athletic events? No. All right, I've got one. How come you don't fly everywhere? It's exhausting. Why don't you run everywhere? It's faster. Yeah, OK, I see, I see. All right, your turn. TiVo. You can just freeze live TV? That's insane! You don't have that? We have Hivo, but it's a disease. It's a horrible, horrible disease. Oh, my. Dumb bees! You must want to sting all those jerks. We try not to sting. It's usually fatal for us. So you have to watch your temper. Very carefully. You kick a wall, take a walk, write an angry letter and throw it out. Work through it like any emotion: Anger, jealousy, lust. Oh, my goodness! Are you OK? Yeah. - What is wrong with you?! - It's a bug. He's not bothering anybody. Get out of here, you creep! What was that? A Pic 'N' Save circular? Yeah, it was. How did you know? It felt like about 10 pages. Seventy-five is pretty much our limit. You've really got that down to a science. - I lost a cousin to Italian Vogue. - I'll bet. What in the name of Mighty Hercules is this? How did this get here? Oute Bee, Golden Blossom, Ray Liotta Private Select? - Is he that actor? - I never heard of him. - Why is this here? - For people. We eat it. You don't have enough food of your own? - Well, yes. - How do you get it? - Bees make it. - I know who makes it! And it's hard to make it! There's heating, cooling, stirring. You need a whole Krelman thing! - It's organic. - It's our-ganic! It's just honey, Barry. Just what?! Bees don't know about this! This is stealing! A lot of stealing! You've taken our homes, schools, hospitals! This is all we have! And it's on sale?! I'm getting to the bottom of this. I'm getting to the bottom of all of this! Hey, Hector. - You almost done? - Almost. He is here. I sense it. Well, I guess I'll go home now and just leave this nice honey out, with no one around. You're busted, box boy! I knew I heard something. So you can talk! I can talk. And now you'll start talking! Where you getting the sweet stuff? Who's your supplier? I don't understand. I thought we were friends. The last thing we want to do is upset bees! You're too late! It's ours now! You, sir, have crossed the wrong sword! You, sir, will be lunch for my iguana, Ignacio! Where is the honey coming from? Tell me where! Honey Farms! It comes from Honey Farms! Orazy person! What horrible thing has happened here? These faces, they never knew what hit them. And now they're on the road to nowhere! Just keep still. What? You're not dead? Do I look dead? They will wipe anything that moves. Where you headed? To Honey Farms. I am onto something huge here. I'm going to Alaska. Moose blood, crazy stuff. Blows your head off! I'm going to Tacoma. - And you? - He really is dead. All right. Uh-oh! - What is that?! - Oh, no! - A wiper! Triple blade! - Triple blade? Jump on! It's your only chance, bee! Why does everything have to be so doggone clean?! How much do you people need to see?! Open your eyes! Stick your head out the window! From NPR News in Washington, I'm Oarl Kasell. But don't kill no more bugs! - Bee! - Moose blood guy!! - You hear something? - Like what? Like tiny screaming. Turn off the radio. Whassup, bee boy? Hey, Blood. Just a row of honey jars, as far as the eye could see. Wow! I assume wherever this truck goes is where they're getting it. I mean, that honey's ours. - Bees hang tight. - We're all jammed in. It's a close community. Not us, man. We on our own. Every mosquito on his own. - What if you get in trouble? - You a mosquito, you in trouble. Nobody likes us. They just smack. See a mosquito, smack, smack! At least you're out in the world. You must meet girls. Mosquito girls try to trade up, get with a moth, dragonfly. Mosquito girl don't want no mosquito. You got to be kidding me! Mooseblood's about to leave the building! So long, bee! - Hey, guys! - Mooseblood! I knew I'd catch y'all down here. Did you bring your crazy straw? We throw it in jars, slap a label on it, and it's pretty much pure profit. What is this place? A bee's got a brain the size of a pinhead. They are pinheads! Pinhead. - Oheck out the new smoker. - Oh, sweet. That's the one you want. The Thomas 3000! Smoker? Ninety puffs a minute, semi-automatic. Twice the nicotine, all the tar. A couple breaths of this knocks them right out. They make the honey, and we make the money. "They make the honey, and we make the money"? Oh, my! What's going on? Are you OK? Yeah. It doesn't last too long. Do you know you're in a fake hive with fake walls? Our queen was moved here. We had no choice. This is your queen? That's a man in women's clothes! That's a drag queen! What is this? Oh, no! There's hundreds of them! Bee honey. Our honey is being brazenly stolen on a massive scale! This is worse than anything bears have done! I intend to do something. Oh, Barry, stop. Who told you humans are taking our honey? That's a rumor. Do these look like rumors? That's a conspiracy theory. These are obviously doctored photos. How did you get mixed up in this? He's been talking to humans. - What? - Talking to humans?! He has a human girlfriend. And they make out! Make out? Barry! We do not. - You wish you could. - Whose side are you on? The bees! I dated a cricket once in San Antonio. Those crazy legs kept me up all night. Barry, this is what you want to do with your life? I want to do it for all our lives. Nobody works harder than bees! Dad, I remember you coming home so overworked your hands were still stirring. You couldn't stop. I remember that. What right do they have to our honey? We live on two cups a year. They put it in lip balm for no reason whatsoever! Even if it's true, what can one bee do? Sting them where it really hurts. In the face! The eye! - That would hurt. - No. Up the nose? That's a killer. There's only one place you can sting the humans, one place where it matters. Hive at Five, the hive's only full-hour action news source. No more bee beards! With Bob Bumble at the anchor desk. Weather with Storm Stinger. Sports with Buzz Larvi. And Jeanette Ohung. - Good evening. I'm Bob Bumble. - And I'm Jeanette Ohung. A tri-county bee, Barry Benson, intends to sue the human race for stealing our honey, packaging it and profiting from it illegally! Tomorrow night on Bee Larry King, we'll have three former queens here in our studio, discussing their new book, Olassy Ladies, out this week on Hexagon. Tonight we're talking to Barry Benson. Did you ever think, "I'm a kid from the hive. I can't do this"? Bees have never been afraid to change the world. What about Bee Oolumbus? Bee Gandhi? Bejesus? Where I'm from, we'd never sue humans. We were thinking of stickball or candy stores. How old are you? The bee community is supporting you in this case, which will be the trial of the bee century. You know, they have a Larry King in the human world too. It's a common name. Next week... He looks like you and has a show and suspenders and colored dots... Next week... Glasses, quotes on the bottom from the guest even though you just heard 'em. Bear Week next week! They're scary, hairy and here live. Always leans forward, pointy shoulders, squinty eyes, very Jewish. In tennis, you attack at the point of weakness! It was my grandmother, Ken. She's 81. Honey, her backhand's a joke! I'm not gonna take advantage of that? Quiet, please. Actual work going on here. - Is that that same bee? - Yes, it is! I'm helping him sue the human race. - Hello. - Hello, bee. This is Ken. Yeah, I remember you. Timberland, size ten and a half. Vibram sole, I believe. Why does he talk again? Listen, you better go 'cause we're really busy working. But it's our yogurt night! Bye-bye. Why is yogurt night so difficult?! You poor thing. You two have been at this for hours! Yes, and Adam here has been a huge help. - Frosting... - How many sugars? Just one. I try not to use the competition. So why are you helping me? Bees have good qualities. And it takes my mind off the shop. Instead of flowers, people are giving balloon bouquets now. Those are great, if you're three. And artificial flowers. - Oh, those just get me psychotic! - Yeah, me too. Bent stingers, pointless pollination. Bees must hate those fake things! Nothing worse than a daffodil that's had work done. Maybe this could make up for it a little bit. - This lawsuit's a pretty big deal. - I guess. You sure you want to go through with it? Am I sure? When I'm done with the humans, they won't be able to say, "Honey, I'm home," without paying a royalty! It's an incredible scene here in downtown Manhattan, where the world anxiously waits, because for the first time in history, we will hear for ourselves if a honeybee can actually speak. What have we gotten into here, Barry? It's pretty big, isn't it? I can't believe how many humans don't work during the day. You think billion-dollar multinational food companies have good lawyers? Everybody needs to stay behind the barricade. - What's the matter? - I don't know, I just got a chill. Well, if it isn't the bee team. You boys work on this? All rise! The Honorable Judge Bumbleton presiding. All right. Oase number 4475, Superior Oourt of New York, Barry Bee Benson v. the Honey Industry is now in session. Mr. Montgomery, you're representing the five food companies collectively? A privilege. Mr. Benson... you're representing all the bees of the world? I'm kidding. Yes, Your Honor, we're ready to proceed. Mr. Montgomery, your opening statement, please. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, my grandmother was a simple woman. Born on a farm, she believed it was man's divine right to benefit from the bounty of nature God put before us. If we lived in the topsy-turvy world Mr. Benson imagines, just think of what would it mean. I would have to negotiate with the silkworm for the elastic in my britches! Talking bee! How do we know this isn't some sort of holographic motion-picture-capture Hollywood wizardry? They could be using laser beams! Robotics! Ventriloquism! Oloning! For all we know, he could be on steroids! Mr. Benson? Ladies and gentlemen, there's no trickery here. I'm just an ordinary bee. Honey's pretty important to me. It's important to all bees. We invented it! We make it. And we protect it with our lives. Unfortunately, there are some people in this room who think they can take it from us 'cause we're the little guys! I'm hoping that, after this is all over, you'll see how, by taking our honey, you not only take everything we have but everything we are! I wish he'd dress like that all the time. So nice! Oall your first witness. So, Mr. Klauss Vanderhayden of Honey Farms, big company you have. I suppose so. I see you also own Honeyburton and Honron! Yes, they provide beekeepers for our farms. Beekeeper. I find that to be a very disturbing term. I don't imagine you employ any bee-free-ers, do you? - No. - I couldn't hear you. - No. - No. Because you don't free bees. You keep bees. Not only that, it seems you thought a bear would be an appropriate image for a jar of honey. They're very lovable creatures. Yogi Bear, Fozzie Bear, Build-A-Bear. You mean like this? Bears kill bees! How'd you like his head crashing through your living room?! Biting into your couch! Spitting out your throw pillows! OK, that's enough. Take him away. So, Mr. Sting, thank you for being here. Your name intrigues me. - Where have I heard it before? - I was with a band called The Police. But you've never been a police officer, have you? No, I haven't. No, you haven't. And so here we have yet another example of bee culture casually stolen by a human for nothing more than a prance-about stage name. Oh, please. Have you ever been stung,
TL,DR Dont frick with bees

2020.10.21 08:07 Coraline1599 A Long Winded Tale of An Inappropriate and Pointless Work Crush

Y'all are the only ones who might understand. I don't think anyone in my life understands. I, also haven't told anyone because I know it's inappropriate and I am embarrassed.
This story starts in the summer of 2017. I work fully remotely. I work 3 month contracts in small teams. In this summer, a guy(I'll call him Guy) was jammed on my team due to a confluence of odd events and poor management. The rest of the team was cold to him. But I felt that it wasn't his fault and welcomed him to the team and tried to be supportive. He was indifferent to me and really never talked at all. I knew he had his world turned upside down, so I tried to not take it personally and just tried to make the most of it for the whole team. 2 months later he was able to get out and onto another contract.
Late summer of 2018, I've pretty much forgotten him entirely, we rarely crossed paths, but for a few meetings here and there. But we had a work conference and people from all 20 offices were flown in for a weekend. He sees me, comes right up to me and give me the biggest, warmest, most friendly, emotionally open and genuine hug I've ever experienced. It was really really nice. I'm a bit emotionally jarred because it's been 8 years since I have had a relationship or even date or anything and that was the most human contact I've had aside from hugging my mom when I see her. And this guy, I thought he didn't care for me at all/remember me.
Later in the day we break off into groups. My department has 27 men and me and one other woman. I tried to talk to the other woman but she was cold to me. My usual teammates were absent. So I just hung about the doorway, not feeling sure where to sit. Feeling really intimidated. Guy pulls up a seat next to him and invites me to sit next to him. We sit next to each other and our knees drift together, touching, for a good portion of the meeting. I am torn between enjoying it and feeling like a total jerky pervert who should get reported to HR and I am abusing his kindness, but he... he doesn't move his knee away and there is space to do so. So maybe it is ok?
We walked back to the hotel, and said we'd meet back up for the dinner event at the event since we both had a few things to take care of and it seemed OTT to try to coordinate. But he somehow found me in the lobby at exactly the right time and we walked back. I vividly remember this walk like it was yesterday. We are totally different. He is 13-16 years younger than me as best I can guess from going over school and work history. He's got a very chill vibe. I am wound tight. He's really nice to me and thinks I should feel more confident at work and that I am awesome at what I do and should own it more. I mutually feel he is most excellent at his job and tell him I hope we get to work together again some time.
Work planned an 80s themed murder mystery event. It was so cheesy, and I had never done a murder mystery before. Guy just gets some beer and decides to just watch the nonsense. I have my list of tasks and I'm off to do them. He tells me to not do them, that it's silly and respond that I am not the type of person who rebels in this way. I leave to do my tasks. I was efficient in my tasks and ended up having no major role in the 'murder'. So I returned to where he was and we hung out together, drinking beer and our knees eventually drifting back together.
After that, most of us went to karaoke. People were singing The Clash and we all joined in for The Pixies "Where is My Mind" - I could not have felt more at home and like I had found my people. Guy on the other hand, not his scene - he left at some point without saying goodbye and ended up staying out late at a jazz club.
I left early so I could go to bed and get up early. I made sure to not drink too much. There were more work sessions and I wanted to be available to help with any prep. Guy rolls in late and hungover and doesn't say 'hi' or nod at me or anything. I feel lost and I run through my mind what I did wrong.
We wrapped around noon. Finally he acknowledges me and I have butterflies like I am in middle school. I just had a train ride out of the city and my trains ran once an hour so my leaving was pretty flexible, but Guy had 7 hours to his flight and was trying to figure out what to do (along with a few other people), as we planned, at first it was going to be a group of us, but then it was just me and Guy, walking through the city. He got some text messages back from some people and he asked about how far is Brooklyn? And how best to get there? Does he have time to go before his flight? When would he have to leave Brooklyn to be able to catch his flight? And I help him make a plans so he can see his friends. He gives me a very awkward hug and a very awkward goodbye. I dejectedly walk to my train, wondering what on earth I did wrong. By the evening I realize I've developed the biggest crush I've had in more than a decade.
Later in the week we connect over slack and we check that each other got home safely etc. I am feeling like a teenager. We go on strange tangents and talk for longer than we should. But, it turns out I am always the one messaging him first. I encourage him to just 'ping me some time.' But he doesn't. So I realize I am harassing him and probably missing social cues and he's just a nice dude and the only way to get over this crush is to stop talking to him. I wait and wait but he doesn't message me. It, sadly, takes me months to shake my warm fuzzy feelings.
Since we work remote, I use it as an opportunity to leave my house never. And he, rather, rents AirBnBs and lives in places like Seattle, Portugal, Austin...Now we are in a pattern where usually, we are in a meeting together once every few months and start messaging each other on the side (he even starts some of these conversations), so we do a little catching up.
2019 goes by. We continue to cross paths once in a while at meetings, I go to his workshops, he comes to mine, we do about 2 a year each. But we really talk maybe once every 3 months.
2020 goes (mostly) by and this summer, he starts asking me some random questions a bit more often over slack. Then he asks me about 2 months ago if I am going to be on the same October contract as him. I say "no". We are both "sad". He said he would love to work with me and I agree. Maybe the next one? But the warm fuzzy feelings are dead, long dead. He is just a coworker who I respect and admire his work and that alone. I am happy for getting over my silliness. I believe I could work with him 100% professionally, if it were to ever happen.
Yesterday, I got a job offer and decided to take a new job. I would like to just put a message in slack and announce to everyone, but I was told not to do this because this is as tacky as breaking up with someone via post-it or text. So I am spending much of my day scheduling meetings to 1:1 tell people. For some reason I felt compelled to ask him to get on a zoom call. A thing we never did post conference. But this is how you are supposed to tell coworkers you are moving on, I guess.
I ask him if he would be willing to meet for coffee ~5-15 min some time this week? He says "how about now?" It's 5pm. I agree because sure, why not just get it done? We catch up a little, I announce, he has opinions, they are very sweet, he is happy for me and then we keep talking... and talking... and talking and it's just so nice. I try to end the call realizing I am eating up his time and we are way over the 15 minute mark that I had initially outlined as the time block. He starts suggesting we just stop working for other people and start our own thing. I laugh. He brings it up a couple more times. I try to end the call two times and he is so reluctant to get off the call, he is looking just as handsome as ever and I'm just smiling on the inside and outwardly all over again. Things feel nice and calm and easy. He's so easy to be around and talk to. But, I feel myself getting the warm fuzzies and I just say "let's not let so much time pass again" and abruptly end the call because I felt overwhelmed.
It is hours later and I am flooded back with stupid feelings. Stupid inappropriate embarrassing feelings. He's just a nice, good and chill guy. That's all. But why... why haven't I been able to meet literally anyone else in 10 years that I feel even 1/4 as good being around? Why hasn't there been any other person whose knee just drifted into mine and stayed there?
He's off to Mexico for the winter, he's in Chicago now, but doesn't want to stay for the winter. I am in my same apartment, I'm thinking how he thinks it is silly that I will end on a Monday here and start my new job (also remote) on a Tuesday. Why didn't I give myself any time off? Why would I need time off? I am a boring person who is 1000 ways incompatible with this kind person.
So I just have to stop thinking about him and it will be easy enough to avoid him and just hope somewhere out there is someone who I can feel sort of like this again. But with 10 years of no one else, I worry this was it.

2020.10.21 02:43 zerothehero0 Quick Reminder to get your Flu Shot Before the end of October

With covid and all that jazz, getting the flu will be more fun than normal.
You guys'll have to get covid tested, have to quarantine just in case, and get to have everyone you've been in contact with also quarantine for a couple days and get tested. But all that hastle can be avoided if you get your flu shot (unless you actually get covid).
It's recommended to get it before the end of October. My doctor recommends before october 10th, it's a bit late for that date, but still not to late to get it. Please get it if you can!

2020.10.21 00:56 DisneyRayaBiggestFan 20[M4M] (Orange County, CA) Let’s Start A Future Together (Full of Disney, Creativity & Love Above All)

Intro: So it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these, but you’ll be happy to know my door is wide open and my arms are wide open for a guy I can truly be happy with and hopefully meet my forever mate...
About: I’m a 20 year old gay man from Orange County California my name specifically is Justin. I’m very sweet, loyal, caring, determined, honest, creative, and a very committed kind of guy so I’d look for similar traits. I am very close to my family they have accepted me and would treat any other guy I am dating like family too. I just want a guy to give all my love to a guy who I think I can share stuff and common with and be committed to one another.
Hobbies/Interests I also love all things Disney, cartoons, a lil anime, and sometimes like to make skits of my writing skills. (I haven’t done it lately...) I play games on occasion but to be honest I’m not really good at them. When I do play games however, I have played on PC though I am currently transitioning to Playstation 5 and the retro gaming console Polymega. My favorite kind of games are sandbox, simulation, action, adventure, and platformers. I am a bit more flexible with older games lol. Another thing I’m flexible is watching stuff I literally watch stuff from kids shows to serious adult shows depends on my mood. I could go on and on about the things I love that are my passions I’d be honored if you do the same as well. :)
Looking For: I want a long term relationship someone I can potentially meet on here, have nice calls together, laugh together, cry together, meet up someday, and to have a beautiful and happy life together. I need someone that won’t just leave me out of nowhere because if I have a deep connection with someone I don’t want them to disappear, ghost, or lie to me about something. Someone who can get through situations together and not hold grudges is important. Because making mistakes in a relationship can be normal it’s just how you get through them. I’d also like to meet the guy that’s the man of my dreams eventually, but I am patient we will have all the time in the world. I just love a guy who puts me as a priority, and I’m sorta clingy. The only things I don’t want are smokers on cigarettes for health reasons, but other than that I’m pretty easy going. Though, only message or comment if your truly serious that’s all I’ll wish for.
Extra Interests/Info: I enjoy pop, kpop, jpop, R&B, smooth jazz, vapor wave, and instrumental orchestral music. I’m a switch generally open minded to basically anything. I also live with my parents still, but will eventually move out. I have 4 dogs and 3 cats so you could say we are animal lovers. I do YouTube time to time, but I’m usually active.
Outro: Thank you so much for reading this and I really hope your day is lovely and I also look forward to meeting you. I gotta warn you though, I’m super affectionate. :333

2020.10.20 21:02 ahydell G(ish) Rated Nerdcore for a little kid?

Hi! My boyfriend's kid is autistic and 7 years old and he LOVES weird music. I'm super into jazz and jazz fusion and prog rock and he loves all the weird shit I play him. Anyway, a long time ago I dated a guy who was into nerdcore, and I thought that my BF's kid would really like the genre. But he's 7. I need to find nerdcore that is happy and fun and doesn't have any swearing or disturbing themes. Are there any artists or songs in particular that you think would fit the bill? I'd love all your suggestions, thank you in advance!

2020.10.20 15:57 MissEvieMoo Update: The ‘calming’ joys from JustNoMIL and JustNoMom as we approach labour

We’re coming up for 41 weeks now, expecting our first little one (DC). I’m writing this update barely 24 hours since sharing our last round of drama with both DH’s mother any my own (frankly worse) mom, as I’m trying to process the news we’ve just had from the hospital.
We’ve been asking for weeks for parents to call down, stop constantly contacting us, and to let us make the first move/contact as our due date draws near. First time parents, covid restrictions, all that jazz - combined with our midwife advising we keep things as calm and stress-free as possible to promote relaxation and avoid unnessicary stress/panic ahead of the big day.
My JNMom has been the worst for ignoring our wishes and putting her own ‘worry’ (translation: need to be very true of attention and able to gossip/get the news before anyone else and share said news against our wishes) above our and our little ones needs. Anyway - I’ve ranted about that before. Thank you so much everyone who has shared their advice and well-wishes; I’ve been awful at responding, partially due to trying not to interact with social media too much as we approached and passed our due date, but also because my anxiety has just been going through the roof as the days have stretched on and there’s still been no progress. I appreciate and have read every message though, so thank you - truly - for the advice, links, and encouragement.
This week, as we’ve passed our due date, we have a number of appointments set up to meet with our consultant, sonographer, midwife, and a plethora of other experts who are technically just checking baby is still growing ok and I haven’t changed my mind about wanting/needing intervention. We have had no complications along the way - no high blood pressures, swelling, pre eclampsia, gestational diabetes, instances of reduced movement, nothing. Things couldn’t have gone more smoothly medically speaking; so there’s been no reason for anyone to be more worried or on edge.
Try telling that to my clingy, overbearing, self-centred mother. We got to 9pm last night - the evening after a midwife appointment but before a hospital one. DH had been working all day, I’d been firmly sticking to NC. I’ve not responded to anyone but DH and a couple of friends over the past week or so - despite my JNMom’s multiple attempts a day to contact me through multiple different apps, texts, and contacting DH to get to me.
We finally get the chance to sit down together after he’s finished working late (to make up for taking time to go to the appointments with me - something I’m completely fine/happy with), we’re trying to relax after a late dinner and just enjoy time the two of us. I notice his phone keeps pinging with messages. It’s JNMom.
DH: your mom really wants to have a zoom call. Do you feel up for it?
Me: no.
Guys - I didn’t even try and justify it, just like you suggested. Just no. I’m tired all the time, evenings are when DC is at their most active with kicking/movement, my lower back is killing me whenever I sit or lay anywhere but my computer chair (and even that only helps for so long).
DH, bless him, just asked if I was sure and dealt with it for me. He even switched to our group chat again to try and call out her going behind my back to try and get to me through DH/ get a different answer by asking us independently when she doesn’t get the answer she wants from one of us.
Queue lots of messages ‘promising not to ask lots of questions’ and saying she ‘only wants to see how I am’. Like seriously - DH has said how I am. You are already asking more questions than we want to answer every time you message and pester us first, when we have SPECIFICALLY ASKED that people wait for us to contact them first. She’s even tried her other fav topic manipulations - gif spamming, and hinting that she’s just had an big, unexpected expense’ that she’s going to have to pay off over the next three months.
After her last ‘big expense’ led to us covering car repairs for her that she’s still paying back (though she miraculously had the money to take out contracts for new Apple products - phone, watch, and iPad Pro) I flat-out told DH I don’t care what the expense is, we aren’t helping with it unless she directly asks and it is a legitimate need. (She has a habit of ‘hinting’ over and over about money, saying she couldn’t possibly ask us again, then immediately saying yes and paying things back slowly over months - only to ‘lose track’ of how much is left, need to borrow more in the meantime, or re-borrow days after paying back. This time it’s an unexpected vet bill as someone doesn’t have insurance. We’re just about to give birth, but sure, tell us all about your vet bill.)
Of course that’s not the end of it. DC has me getting up 10+ times a night for bathroom breaks and to the and walk off backache. I occasionally check my phone or queue up a new podcast episode if I’m struggling to get back to sleep. I glance at my lock screen: it’s 3am, and JNMom has left a freaking voicemail. At 3AM! Who thinks that is a good time for a call or to leave a message?!
I’m leaving that one to DH to deal with. I refuse to even open it. Since, she’s tried facetiming me multiple times - I’ve ignored them all - each time saying ‘sorry for bothering you. I just wanted to catch up.’
GO AWAY. What part of ‘we want to stay calm and contact people first’ is so hard?!
Add to that JNMIL’s wonderful messages to start off our day:
DH had let his usually OK parents know we had a hospital appointment today to just check baby’s growth etc. He also made the mistake of offering a bit more info: that if everything looked good, we weren’t going to go with an induction.
JNMIL: I wouldn’t resist. Just go with what they say.
I see red. It doesn’t sound like much I know, but DH and I spent months arguing over my fear of induction. Induction can last for days without working. Hospitals in our area until just a couple of weeks ago were making mums go through the entire induction process without any birthing partners or visitors. Just about every ‘birth experience’ group I’ve followed (I know, I know, listen to them but don’t take them as gospel) has been flooded with personal experiences about how it can be more painful than labour itself, how it can make the pain feel more intense/come on much quicker than allowing things to progress naturally, how those who had both natural And induced births would never try induction again.
DH took a lot of talking things through with, he didn’t really get it when I explained, but when our private midwife + hypnobirthing instructors explained more about the importance of choice, promoting calming environments, reducing anxiety to reduce pain etc, it finally clicked for him that of course we would take any steps to protect DC if things went wrong - but it’s just as important that I feel heard and safe and calm, and that’s only going to happen if he’s 100% in my corner and advocating for what I’m comfortable with.
Having JNMIL crapping all over that isn’t what I needed to wake up to. I brought it up with a pretty shitty tone to be honest, letting DH know that was the last thing we needed to hear today. Guys - he agreed! He dealt with it, saying we already know what we are comfortable with and don’t need any input. He just shut that shit right down. I felt so supported and so glad that we hadn’t backslid on that area.
Now for the bad news. Our appointments didn’t go as we had hoped. I’m sat here at home after quite a lot of tears, feeling wrung out and done. DC hasn’t been growing as well as they had hoped, so the hospital are insistent that we get induced later this week. They’ve set a date and a time, and it’s not quite my worst fear, but it’s damn well up there. DH can only be there for part of it not all of it; we can’t have a private room even if we pay extra (something we’d been told should be possible); I can’t go home from when it starts until after baby is here and all checks have come back clear (usually you can go home overnight if it’s an elective induction, but ours would count as against medical advice if we did that). They even rushed me in for a covid test and told me to self isolate until I go back for the induction.
It’s what’s going to be best for DC, so it’s what we have to do, but I’m so scared and I feel like I’m failing DC already with this. And now we need to figure out what we’re going to say to family.
I don’t want to tell anyone - my instinct is to just say DC is smaller than expected but to not give more details; if they’re all unable to listen to our wishes to not message when everything is going 100% right, how much worse will they be when something is happening? Indictions can take 3-4 days - we don’t need both sides messaging either of us while that’s happening.
DH thinks we should tell them when we’re scheduled to be booked in, tell them not to message us and that we’ll update them as/when things progress.
My worry is that if they know, JNMom might turn up anyway. She’s for sure going to keep pushing for video and phone calls and is just going to make me more anxious and is going to be a pain in both of our asses, even if it’s just with a constant string of ‘thinking of you’ messages. JNMIL probably won’t be as bad, but with her last round of messages about just listening to the doctors, I don’t want a string of it told you so’s or more unwanted advise.
The thing is, I also don’t want to cut off DH from emotional support if he needs or wants it from his family. I’m leaning on him so much right now with how worried I am, I recognise he might need or want to do the same with his family. He’s such an open guy, he does t like keeping secrets, and I don’t want to make him uncomfortable or feel isolated.
I don’t know what to do. Would it be bad to allow him to tell just his parents? I could probably cope with them being a bit overbearing, but then if my JNMom ever found out they knew and she didn’t, it wouldn’t be something she would be able to forgive/forget.
I honestly don’t think I can deal with her right now. She’s been unbearable these last few weeks, whether she’s got her own way (pushing to visit a week before our due date - we gave in) or isn’t (pushing to visit on our due date; I shut that down), whether we’re low contact (only DH responding a limited amount) or No contact (it’s only been a bit over a week, but I’ve stopped responding altogether).
Has anyone been in a similar situation? I’d really appreciate any advice. DH and I plan to talk things over more and decide what we’re gonna do later today when he’s finished work, but we’ve only got so long before they all start messaging to see how the appointment went. Just wishing they would all calm down and stop pushing so much.

2020.10.20 15:08 Chrissy2710 The End of the Journey to Red Velvet’s Discography (Part 15: ReVe Festival Finale)

Emphasis on the “Finale” part lol. And now we’re closing this Festival (and review) off with the grand Finale. There are only four new tracks on this repackage album, but each of them has its own charm.
Psycho - Oh yes, the song that got me into Red Velvet. When I first heard the song I absolutely fell in love with it. I knew Red Velvet were known for their vocals, but I didn’t know their vocals were that amazing. Irene with the Ariana Grande ponytail automatically made her my bias even though I didn’t know much about her lol. After the first listening, I go back into paying attention to all the details in the song. Of course, the synths in the chorus, the orchestral sound when Seulgi’s prechorus comes up, the little “bubble-sound” that’s in the second chorus. Saying that I love it is an understatement. I may talk about how I’m late to Red Velvet, but I’m glad Psycho was my first introduction to them. I know I’m sounding bias as hell right now, but shit...how can I not put this at number one? 10/10
In & Out - While Psycho was my first Red Velvet title track to listen to, In & Out was my first listen of their b-side. I didn’t know what to expect, but I know that the song impressed me way more than it did. The chorus made the song complete, and it does give me that “sweet bakery” feel, with an R&B sound to it. 10/10.
Remember Forever - One word: magical. Don’t you just wanna grab a cup of hot chocolate and look out the window when it’s snowing? Well, I live in the south of the USA so with that, I can’t live out that dream. The Christmas spirit of the song makes me feel all warm and soft. I know I would hardly listen to this song, and I need to be in the right Christmas mood for it, but that doesn’t stop it from being good. 8/10
La Rouge - Who do I have to sacrifice to get a music video for this song?! La Rouge is the jazz track of the album, and you know how Red Velvet doesn’t miss with it. Now admittedly, I wasn’t the big fan of this song when I first listened to it. I mean I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t go out of my way to listen to it. Now, after the second and onward listen, I warmed up to this song. One thing I can say is that I love artists who drag their voices in their songs, it’s so addicting! I like to think this track is Be Natural’s younger sister who is a lot more flashier lol. 9/10

OP’s Overall Thoughts: Red Velvet was one of the groups that I debated on getting into or not. With the constant changing of their concepts, I didn’t know if I would like that or not. But surprisingly, both their Red and Velvet sides grabbed my interest. I also see people talking about how Red Velvet are known for their amazing b-sides, and this is a subjective opinion, but I can see why. Notice how there’s only two songs out of the 86 that I’m neutral on...okay, it doesn’t take much to please me, but the point still stands lol.
Well, I hope my reviews entertained some of you in some form of fashion, I know I’m not the best when it comes to critiquing things, but it would be nice to look back on all these reviews. I’ll post a thread on all of my reviews (including this one) on the RedVelvet subreddit, see if anyone is interested in what The Journey was like. Edit: Nevermind I can’t get it to work lol
I’ll do a poll later on today to see which group’s discography do you want me to listen to next, because this was really fun to do!
