    I wish we had got more interviews with Joaquin on Conan’s TBS show. I feel like Conan is one of the few talkshow hosts who know how to interview Joaquin without making him feel uncomfortable.

    This threw me off because Buffalo Soldiers has a 2001 date in imdb but they’re also discussing Ladder 49 which wasn’t released until 2004. WTH is going on around here???

    For someone who’s notoriously known for making things awkward/uncomfortable in interviews, Joaquin seems to have totally put his guard down by the end of this interview. A true testament to how amazing an interviewer Conan is.

    Joaquin: wanna hear a joke
    Conan: Nobody talks with me.
    Joaquin: why
    Because I am Batman

    Maybe 300 km per hour, but he wasn’t going 300 mi per hour.

    That was pretty funny. I never seen a Joaquin interview. Would never guess he’s awkward in other interviews after watching this one.

    of nature, don’t fear nature, instead fear when nature stops being nature, starts being something you can’t understand. That is what I say. Thst is what I say.
    Anger truckers power towers, lit parties with blondes doing the sensi dance the sensi dance rolling rolling and doing it and playing teh 6 string guitar with the harp focus cause the snare is hitting hard the snare is hitting hard bam bam and the space bar is drinking with fuity punches to the left and to the right and then he is hitting them angles like the broke back of a tiger cat and then hitting it right and hitting it left and going back and forth and floating with a quote like a moat, dispose of your burnables at the entrance and wabaski, wasabi, watanabi, wahahahahaha? they knew he was abducted when the figure had been take to another planet and thrown into the sun they thought he was dead but they didn’t know i knew japanese, i always knew japanese and that was one of those things that i just knew and i knew that people forget people forget to remember, they forget to remember the pain when they sitting around the hot pot on a cold night, in a steamy sweat shop, you forget the pain and drink away the sorrow, and then you remember the man in the mask and dream about the sensation, and the feeling of love and romance, and next thing you know, you back back on earth, from vebus to jesus indeed, it was never that hard, just a little understanding, a little time, and pretty toes, always pretty toes. It never occurred to them it never occurred to them and i think and i think and i rmeember sometimes, some things and it is not as strong not as precise it will never be as strong and never be as precise for you, because no one cares about your pleasure and your pain, you aren’t internet famous, this can’t happen again, the wolves are looking for 3d a way to occupy the mind completey, buy an occulus, but i have seizures and also you know i get sick from that, so you know, they are defeated, they are the defeated, and it seems to me you can let them do what motivates them but it can never really dominate the human spirit, it never can, because the mind just dosen’t work that way, it just isn’t that simple, neither is it that complicated it is an intricate amount strings and connections hugs and snugs, and for that i wonder if you really want to go that deep, i wonder, because to go that deep you have to know yourself, then know that it won’t be a big world, it won’t be a small world, it won’t be special, it won’t be warm and comforting, it will be nothing and both everything it will be time consuming, and then you will be reminded of the time wasted when you were only being reminded of things already known, and then you will be told that it was worth it when you took some small nugget and you will be dragged and dragged until finally there is a time when you accept that there is no real i remember this feeling i remember this feeling it was a feeling i had when i wrote in my journal i rewrote allthis in those pages, needless to say, whoever did that was right and you all were wrong, there was never any reason to reveal any of this. I wrote all this down long before in a journal, and I burned that with my harry potter books, so i am trying to get you to understand you can’t understand someone 100% you never can, so stop it, i don’t understand who made you think this, i don’t know who made you think that some how people can become more than there animal instincts, that is what makes use more than manchines, and that is what makes life so much more than just routine, and objectives. It is sad to think that people have so lost themselves in the idea that biology dosen’t exist that they think that they can recreate human emotion and simulate human love and feeling, it is funny and kind of sad also, because when you look at what they are doing they are stacking expereince not creating new expereince. That is what people need to understand. And what is even funnier is that the idea that by being nonbinary, you are breaking our connection to manchines, but that is the exact opposit that is only making us become more robotic. It is love and passion that make people who they are, turning that into nerve pulses and trying to simulate expereinces while trying to load memories that is dumbing down the real expereinces we go through. And that is where people need to start to understand to be nice, be helpful be understanding and know that the history of a person reflects on that person and what they do. At no point was I like oh this is crazy I was just wondering why people were doing but then i realized the only reason people were doing it to me was because the information was there and the people around me were willing to tell all my secrets, and they most likely, probably, were corhersed by people, either physically or mentally but either way they made the decision without consulting me, and that is on them. They made that information known and so be it. They couldn’t seperate a journal from something else, and even then, ok so let us think just hypothetically, hollywood and the car industry was actually smart enough to realize that this may happen again and it won’t be this clean and cut dry, they aren’t that smart. It is that simple, they are not that simple, they have never been and never will be. I don’t like the idea that people actually think that they could think through a problem, they couldn’t actually do that. That would competency, and i have never in my life met someone who was comepted, not to my standard, never, and i never will, it is that simple.

    Months later, Penn Jillette threw a similar funny jab at the talk-show “pre-cocked” format: youtu.be/Z4WPblQ9mkw?t=163

    t do the right things, for example only know am i finding out that my mother liked trains which makes no since, and then the fact that my brother was doing challenge island carlos gave me that red charger, and then akar tried to text me like 2 months after to ask how i was doing, but in the very beginning my brother said he was suicidal and my parents said nothing but just came to visit. I don’t understand the point i don’t understand the point. I don’t get why people do what they do, but instead I just say it out loud, cause most people are too afraid to actually break the law, and then there are people who are too afraid to break tradition, adn then there are people who afraid of going to hell, and at the end of the day being a good person honesty, truth, helping, helpfulness, help, physically mentally, help you scream help when you are in danger, respond and then that person comes to your aid, that is someone in need that is basic but sometimes people forget.

Right but more important i was trying to say that some people are even afradi to get a speeding ticket it is one of things that people are afraid to break the speeding laws because they think it is unsafe, but they never expereince excessive speed, and being able to control that speed, that is one of the things i think alot of people need to start to understand as they grow and try to do new things, it takes a wide range of expereince to then know when it is safe to exceed limits, or break the law, do a quote illegal activity, and fight for what you were doing, againist your family or you friends and then when you are just wrong, and you are doing something that can harm yourself or others. That is where csocietal laws and norms comes in. Learned all this from playing the orginal sims, i rewrote the coding so that i could more enjoy the human ai relations and understand the cumputer connections in which the diamond people enjoy and which i knew i could never enjoy, but i would try, boy would i try, because my goal was to become a fully realized digital cyborg copied from my biological body, and over nitzy glitzy lingo, you gotta know the lingo get the gringo so jingo, and some other strange things my ps4 is about to turn off in 10 minutes so i am thinking about moving the buttons but then again if i move the sticks it will again reset and will that affect teh universe and it is these questions that many people wonder and they start to rebuild thier lives on and they start to think what could happen why he did or didn’t when he did wor didn’t and was he looking up or down and then there is if he did both or did he do neither is he wearing glasses is he swithing th batteries, and if the shot is taken is that the shot that was taken before or after the written word was typed and some other strange often complicated thins thins thin footed walking delicately like a sure footed ballerina, it is with they jigelets, these nigelits, that i understand that the true understanding that no one could truly understand these things.

    1:01…(disassociates, grabs coffee mug)…again Conan has the brains to ask better questions by at least going a little under the surface, I hope when he gets his HBO show going he uses Cavett as a blueprint
