The myth, the legend.... Brian

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

The Story Board 

Today I dive in the archives and talk a very hidden friend who needs credit when credit is due. I open up and talk about Brian and how he has an effect on the decisions that I had over my life. So everything from Cars to computers to even video games, Brian had bigger decisions and bigger choices and bigger life stuff that most people think but yet he is not talked about enough so in today's episode I break down the many things that Brian and I have done not in well detail but enough.

Oh Boy, Oh boy, Oh boy, what a story to tell you. Welcome to Janents, but tell me I will be your host for today. First Up, story about last week. I recorded an episode, couldn't find the proper equipment to transfer from recorder to my phone to the site that when I did find it, I accidentally raced it. Go fare me all the stories. So last week's has been, let's say, destroyed, forever and ever. This week what we're going to be doing is we're going to be diving into a friend that really doesn't get talked about too much and that we haven't had a lot of interesting things go on, all right, but he has had a huge, I mean absolutely huge, part of things that...

...have gone on in my life. Okay, he is Brian. Mr G unit himself Ryan and I it was weird how we started hanging out. He was one of the people who used to back up my playstation one games on this for me, so the actual disc would and get racked. Then cool part about Brian is after we graduated we started hanging out more and he kind of got me into a path that I never thought really too much, but he got me deeper in the Internet. He got me deeper into electronics. He got me into certain cartoons that I would never ever dawned on. Tapped...

...to, like it was quite interesting on the capacity of knowledge that I took from the one day I walked into his place. He looks at me, goes he got twenty bucks. It's like all yeah, I reached my pocket, got twenty bucks, goes give it to me. It's like all right. So I gave it to him. See that computer over there and it was. It was everything, like sound card, video, motherboard, the processor, everything, Card drive, CD burner, not CD burner. I was a rich CD player, CD Rock, CD Rop. Yeah, that's fine. And he goes, okay, that's your computer. I looked up as like what. He goes, you know, you've been hanging out with me for Gwyd Wal. I know what you can do. Build that computer. I give you two hours, two hours, that's it's build it. It's like all right. So so what do you know? I went put...

...in the motherboard, put in the processor, put everything where it should be, like everything up. It's like, all right, Brian, I'm done. That was fast. It was easy. You's okay. So then we go, we plug it in, boot it up, installed the newest operating system for that particular thing, which was, I think whendows nineteen is. This was at the turn of the century. Fired up, everything works. Sound work, video worked in those kid weren't going. A couple hours later, walks over, he goes, how is the computer going? Not Too bad. He takes a look. I'm listening to music, I'm cruising the web, I'm chatting on him Issa and ICQ. Are you lighting it? No, that's actually pretty fine. You want to try? Yeah, I...

...want to see what you're actually doing. So he goes, he's doing stuff. He's type and he's downloading drivers, things like that, all my computer, because this is incredible. It's like, I know, I like it like at a lot. He goes, twenty bucks has actually not bad. It's like, I don't think's man. So that was kind of like my very first computer. He helped me build it. If it wasn't for him, I don't think I would have been able to do what I do to even to game. He got me into the computer nerd stuff. There was even times where I got my new computer, I got everything set up and if it wasn't for Brian, I don't think I would have been able to do that. I don't even think I would have done half the stuff. And there was also another huge part of my life that has been effective by there was I bought two vehicles off of them. Both of them were in...

...the sprints, the red one in the white one. He got me into driving a manual, which I thank him a lot. If it wasn't for him, I don't think I ever would. I love manuals and it's all because of Brian. I love loud stereos, it's all because of Brian. The music that I listened to like more of the variety of the different spectrums, from rap to rock to popped R and B who's all because of Brian. Some of the music that I found was all because of Brian. There was a lot of things that Brian did that actually got me to where I am today. But, like with the red sprint, I bought that off of them to absolutely awesome. The reason why I broke down wasn't because of anything that Brian did. He kept that red sprint down to the tea.

It just the kilometers, the time, me driving the way I did and eventually got a bad valve. Then with the transmission, I shifted stupidly and Musta threw the clutch out wrong or I screw the transmission. The second one was the white. Would it be a spruit Geo Metro? I'm pretty sure it was another sprint, but I want to think it was something else anyway, that that was because of me. It wasn't because of Brian. I broke the window when I was trying to roll it up and the transmission almost fell out. Things happen, but with those two cars they were both wonderful. So many memories, as you probably heard. When it came to some of the story time. When it comes to the white one, I don't...

...think. No, I really didn't have too much stories, but that because I had a girlfriend at the time and she was a funny duddy. I never really got to do what I always did before, so it kind of it sucked, but it is what it is. But Oh, oh Ah, if it wasn't for Brian also, I would have never went to the xbox. I would have up with the playstation. I never okay, because I hung up with Brian, we started to hang out with al. Al Had an Xbox. I tried it at Al's house while hanging up with Brian and that's when I fell in love with it. So Brian, like I said, huge thing, huge part of my life. I still love to sit down with him and actually do a show and just talk about some of...

...the things that we didn't like our trips to as devand his cutlast that he had an absolute awesome stereo in and the one thing about his stereo in his cutlass he had customized. The box he had for Sony explodes in the fun part about that part of card and that Stereo was people would always laugh at just because of the explodes. And he goes, what's so funny about it? And everybody goes, that's like the cheapest brand name subs on the market. You gotta go with the other one, like Phoenix golds or Rockford, something like that. Bring Goes, have you actually heard these things? Pound? They're Sony's. They won't. They won't pound, they'll explode. Hence the name. So Brian looks at me because he had an Mpthree displayer in his card. To me the technicals. Where's that one song that we played?...

It's in the g folder ghetto boys, gangster of love, version two. So Brian goes in. Everybody palls in the car, we roll up the windows, we play one song and they're like man, this sucks. Hit it again. Plays gangster of love by the ghetto boys, second version, black album, mug shots on the cupboard and, let me tell you, within the first thirty seconds, forty five minutes, these guys were trying to get out because there were so much based, so much pressure from this song and from these socks they just couldn't breathe. So once we were, Brian and I were done laughing, we got out of the car and they go, Oh my God, those are awesome R it's like yeah, I...

...told you, just the way that the subs are set up. It took it took me a couple weeks to make a box, make it perfect and make it do what it's supposed to do. You can't deny they're like well, how much should be painful? He kind of smiles on his face. It goes about two hundred and fifty bucks. So then his girlfriend at the time basically explain that they use their brain. They went to one place, got a writtenest it, went to another place, they beat it, gave them the paper, went back to the first place, they beat it, went back to the second place, they beat it, went back to the first, they refused to beat it and they got the four subs for two hundred fifty bucks, where it should have been like closer to four. So Bryan's smart man when it comes to that. It's life is just weird and...

...just interesting. When you hear me talk about g unit or Brian, he was the computer nerd out of my friends, but one of the most interesting ones to if he there was more to them than what people think, and I do have to say my experience with him was fun in a different way and there would be times where I like to go hang out with them. But now that we live into totally different cities and were kind of quotation adults, we got to be adults more than we've got to be kids. You know, one day will have kids again, but until then that is about it. Well, I thought I just pump out a episode go from there. Otherwise, I'm trying something new with the show. All right, if...

...you head over to my my feed, click on a NHL Goalie's top five favorites. Going to the description, you see a link should be close to the tip. Click on that link. It has a little bit more interaction where it shows all of the five favorite goalies, a little description of why I like them, as well as stats and photos. So that particular lineup of the show I want to do with every single show. As I start to republish him, I want to remaster and get a better sound, something more enjoyable for you. It's going to take me some time. In the end, I think, who that's not? That's not it's almos. Gonna put my hand on my coffee. So in the end I think it's going to be one hundred percent worth it. The one thing that I want to do with the show is have it a little bit more interactive and a lot...

...more friendly or for you guys to check out shows and side notes. One of the reasons why I'm doing this is somebody messaged me, what was at the last monthly think or whenever GRANDPA's gone crazy, and said that most of my stories are lies. There's no alway these things were happening. So they didn't believe Dustin's truck, they didn't believe GRANDPA's truck. So what I did is I found this one website and I said emails I'm gonna do something. I'm gonna try some. So I posted the show, or not posted the show, but I did post a pictures of GRAMPA's truck and Dustin's true. The Guy who message me kind of message me back to us. All right, all right, I'm starting to believe your stories. Of course, why...

...would I lie? I'm not like one of the freaking clickbaters on Youtube. Oh my God, there's one guy that's massive clickbater. Oh, I can't even remember his name. All I know is he's beyond a clickbator, Otter than I am. Masturbator, I ass no, there's some enjoyment on mass.
