Mouse Doggy Dog You Need a Jobby Job

00:00:00 - 00:05:05

Hey! We're here. It's us! Mouse and Weens. Oh my goodness! Back together again at your house in the same breath. That's right. I'm Mouse. I'm the big one - the old one I guess. I'm the little one but the tall one. The tall little. Yeah. Kitty, don't you dare... The cat is stepping on the computer. Yay. All right. Weens just breezed into town again. I did. She's breezing through. I just like breezing. So I quick, so I grabbed her on the mic because we've been trying to schedule things. I know, it's been forever. It's been a very rough week. The hit show The Rookie's demanding. How's it going? Demanding. You just had two big location shots and got them done, right? Yes they were my locations to man. They're like, you know, throwing gigantic weddings back to back. Can you...? What are are they doing about the girl? You probably can't talk about that huh? You can read about it online. Well I read about it. I posted it on Facebook. There was a little employment shakeup on the set of The Rookie. A #metoo moment, right? Are they recasting her as someone else? Recast. Really? So it's going to be like Aunt Viv or whatever on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air where she just shows up the next season as a completely different person? I'm Aunt Viv! Right? Did that happen? Wasn't that her name? On 227? 227! No on Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Oh sorry. Oh excuse me. Not Two-Two-Seven. No. Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Okay. I'm sorry. I didn't get the distinguished memo. Wasn't that her name? I think. I don't know. Vague nineties memories. But yeah she uh.... People take off and someone just pokes back in and.. Yeah, they just put her in the suit and threw out there. There you go. Doesn't get addressed. How odd. But she was an integral character right? And there was some some stuff that happened. I don't even want to get you in trouble. I'm so scared to get you in trouble. I don't want to say anything. You always are asking asking me to post videos and I always tell you no. I know. She sends them to me and then I'm not allowed to do anything with them. I just sit on them like a hot egg. Isn't it hard for you to resist? A hot Hollywood egg! Yes I just let it rumble around. I did some from the set 'cause it's funny. I was on the Warner Brothers lot in the offices there and then I was walking by another movie and all of a sudden there are characters that look like zombies and a Little Bo Peep outfit and then like weird... Sorry. This cat. You're getting her all riled up. Hi Kitty. And look at your black outfit, all furry now. Ah geez. Anyway it's funny. It's that typical film set. Or, uh, when you see these old movies - like Mel Brooks movies - where two people are walking and all of a sudden a bunch of Roman conquerors walk by. It kind of is like that. It was totally like that. It was like some bizarre circus scene. It reminded me of, what was that, HBO Carnivale. Kinda creepy but then there were zombies and like bloody faces. And then that workout video. That was working out in Warner Brothers gym and there was a lady in there who had her little 3D green screen suit on. She was working out and still had all the bubbles of the green screen. So yeah. She was jacked too. That's why you kept saying, "Take video of it" because I was scared. Like she's gonna kill me. She's like a warrior princess or... Yes. Yeah. I'm sure issues. I pretended I was taking video of my feet on the little thing we push the feet and secretly she was in the background. Did you notice? Oh Instagram foot model. Yeah. You're gonna get me in trouble always. Sorry. I just get so excited. It was exciting stuff but I didn't post it. What have you been up to? huckabee been fact a school well we did last time we recorded. I was about to leave for sedona and all these family vacations turns and we went and it was great but did i get my ask me if i got my writing done. Did you know i got some.

I feel like i can focus on it more and it was my whole plan and to get done before school started which was yesterday and it didn't happen and i'm so mad at myself. You realize that self imposed deadlines and one of the hardest do things to do armpit smells here so i know we'll stop staring at me.

It makes sense. It was a super normal... In fact this other pal Bruce was a soda jerk. He was like the original yogurt guy which I thought was cute. I worked with a Bruce. He was a asshole. Go go ahead but yeah it was called chill out because it was very cool and hip to be visibly started by the way i remember feeling the shaft from you a car and a job of certain yeah but I remember going into my sister has a job and be like hi and then you just would work as if you didn't know me know give more attention to the employee than either the customers than me.

It's was not doing yes so forget that man crush she was like a sixties hippie girl like a revisited hippie girl and she dated a guy because he looked like Bob Dylan. Can you imagine? So she sat there in the back and I would run around doing most of the work and she'd pop out and do the work too. But she sat in the back with her ashtray and her cigarette. And she was a little bit older than me and she'd talk and she'd inhale and then the smoke would come out and go up through her nose. And I remember just staring at her and being like, "Oh she's so cool" and just studying how she smoked in case ever needed to be actress and learn how to smoke.

No you're also you did a photo or photo phone calls. What's it called. Oh ooh that was one of my first jobs. Telemarketer telemarketer wishing that I had to help people buy some land out in Angel's Camp really and if they came and looked at this timeshare in Angel's Camp they might get a dinner at The Velvet Turtle. Come on! Everybody come to the Velvet Turtle. Then I just... That was when I was wearing all the black clothes and being punky to other punky friends that probably is fourteen, fifteen years old and I would do things. I was sort of... I always had a lot of finky energy. I remember catching flies and making people boxes while I was doing the phone calls. And I'd put a fly in the paper box that I would give it to someone they would open it a fly. I thought that was hilarious and then if someone was mean than i pass around their phone number and make everybody call well and we just keep offering belva turtles high. Have you had to think about velvet. I told you not our call. We call five hi. Have you heard their god gary. I told you not give rush limbaugh. I turned into rush limbaugh minute. Call the original no call list. That's why they yes the velvet turtle lady calling. Didn't you do voices two. I think you called me from the line or something. Maybe yeah did you get get my timeshare probably not no sorry upshur commissioned yeah but you would practice all your voices from around the world countries right so there were you fired or did you quit. I think we left <hes> when q okay kiefer quit. What about the data entry country fired quit <hes> think that went under the company. I mean most of the time i leave. You know i had one of those. I'm gonna write bankrupt for that. One i had they were nice guys. I worked at med center and we came to work one day and it was the doors were all locked up and somebody he came with a key though because it was like we're buddies with all the doctors and nurses and it was like an urgent care center where it was open all the time and so the doctor let us in was like we're going to clear out this joint.


00:25:02 - 00:30:21

They owe us two weeks of pay and so we did. We like pilfered the whole place printers. We took pen pen cups. I took a coffee grinder and coffee machine. Oh a plant - the plant in the corner of my kitchen is still the original plant from that midspan loot and i carried it around. It went to college with me and all these years of marriage. It's that same plant and it's still alive. Yeah it's alive yeah and that was a cool job because I was a front desk person checking in patients and it was also a sleep center and like a sleep study place those did you didn't know that machine the picture no you go to find with all your wires and talking recently like when i was having this panic attacks I was what's wrong with me so we went to one. I was working on set of The Last Man On Earth and I we're done at midnight midnight and I went in to the sleep center and slept there with all the wire hookups and then went back the next morning yeah. My dentist is trying to tell me I need to go to one of those. She's like, "I think you might have sleep apnea based on what your gum lines look like and your biting pattern. And I'm like I think it's a ruse. I think she's trying to get to spend money there. And then I referred Dave to go to her too and she said the same exact thing. So she's gonna get a kick back. Maybe I happen to have the same issue as that. But the place was cool because we could go back and watch the videos of the people sleeping. I would work there till really late, like two in the morning. Sometimes people  would come in with their little overnight bag and get all hooked up and it was like a little hotel room. It's the same thing. And then they'd have all the other computers going and watching their brain waves. It was cool. It's a neat.. That sounds like a fun situation. But yeah, that guy was a creep. Though the guy that owned it was real shady doing stuff where he... Like patients would come in and he would tell the doctors - Not all the doctors were like this but some would do it. Instead of just giving the person a prescription for antibiotics, they would say, "Oh yeah you need an i.v. antibiotic", so they could like up-charge and then bill the insurance and it was like this whole scammy-feeling place. But it was like outside of the system. You know,  they come in and pay separately. And then and we had a family friend come in. Someone's dad, whose name I'm not going to disclose. But he came in looking for pain medication - addiction - and then he saw me and was just like, "Joelle. Don't tell anyone you saw me. This is patient confidentiality," because his chart had a a big huge red stamp on it like 'Drug-seeker'. He was going around to all these different facilities trying to get like probably oxycodone (co-dawn. How do you say it? Oxycodone. Co-doan.) from them. That was before it was like a big thing, right? this eighty so yeah and i was just like ooh. What do i we know. I never told anyone you're good. He'll just no secret keeper over here. Well good show but med center her so i'm gonna put that went bankrupt for me to bank bank ripped right. So when did you get into movies and stuff. What was your wait. Wait while you're looking for that. I'm going to talk about what i saw our mind because i asked a bunch of friends what their first jobs were to just to see. Oh my gosh oh that's funny. She's got wires forehead nose chin legs they monitor look at that all this electrodes. You're holding wow. I look like shit. It was like midnight look at that was that mall because could we barbershop and the lady said i will cut your hair for free so she did give you more more like a eight dollar haircut for free and it was a street of mullet when a deal here just like whoever ever cut your hair you kicked him next time you see anybody touch. You're here for at least a year. No daddy fix it all. I had to let it grow out. It was like i gave you a picture. I look like kenney from eastern anyway. Great interview him. He's like why do people keep putting me in sleeveless shirts. Maybe i should rethink my character choices but he's seen as funny is a good okay. I want to read some of these really quick 'cause somewhere really funny any <hes> my friend day was made that the rbm here who turned down services shoe put mince on the pillows and one time she went into a room. Tom and others food was in there and she thought a cool they checked out and look they left their room service behind so she and another main sat down and ate this whole meal and then people hadn't checkout touton came back really <hes> a lot of people worked in like places might might took right that means my friend friend of missing named joe.

I need to really i tried to find him to tell him thank you at this point in time but <hes> mhm came in and spoke in the class he was friends with oh debbie brubaker who was still in the business in san francisco producer was heading the class. I think it was her her class that she thought she was a very nice person and she brought in kitchens her buddy <hes> came and talked about being assistant director on the hit show Nash Bridges his Nash with Cheech Cheech and dawn love those guys you know them well and so actually words full circle. Danny McBride it from Eastbound And Down married teaches daughter bernice here. She's a nice person so <hes> <hes> afterwards. I was very ambitious. Young pup and I went up to Mike Kitchens and I said, "Could I please call you and can I work on the show? I'll do anything. So me and the other crazy guy named James, who I think was about fifty. He was one of those nut-nutto guys like with the weird fringed leather nineteen seventies jacket with like no sleeves and kind of how like that look. I love you Uncle Bill but remember how Uncle Bill had that wild "alright!" kind of energy where you're just kind of really wide-eyed and... She's looking back and forth really fast. Just one of those guys that's all... They're like... If she had old man ponytail, it'd be flinging around left and right. He's a fling ponytail kind of guy. So I went up to him. I said I think he was just such a nice person and he saw ambition. He goes, "Gimme a call. We'll see what we could do." And then guess who he called out of the whole class? It was like what do you want? A job? Me and Crazy James were the only two people that called. Did you get stuck with him? We were separate. I don't know what happened happened. It was so focused on... And I was like... I think we worked... I worked for free for a week so they saw that I can handle it and then they hired me on and then James. And they tried to hire a few times i think i think we are working with the second unit which means you're not with the main. At first i was working with the stunt unit so uh which was really fun. It was just what the janka was a stunt coordinator and we would just go jump cars and flip cars. It was extremely san francisco so much fun. I don't know what happened to james accepted.


00:35:01 - 00:40:16

He ended up doing a bomb threat and they had he was in your keep hiring me. I'm going to blow up treasure island because that's where office was they had to take it seriously because it was a military base and i think they had to arrest him because he was going to blow up a military base so that was the other guy didn't go as far in the film world say crazy bill. I'm picturing him like the leonardo. Dicaprio character in the wants wants a finance ministry hollywood the fringe best western scene yeah. He was just like that yeah. Did you like that movie by the way i thought it was was really cool. I frigging loved. It really loved it. Dave and i were both. I usually kinda tap out. Look at my watch and think about what's going on. I was in throughout the nineteen seventies <unk>. Does he feel like that. Oh my gosh freaking out. I'm like this is dad. Dad was like a mixture of the leo cap dicaprio and the brad pitt character 'cause brad did all the stunts stunts and stuff right and then you had the blonde and the muscles working on the roofs moves like dad put together all these random jobs and then going out to the ranch totally reminded me of the ranch. Our dad left for summer two in the bay area yeah. He left the barrier to go down to l._a. To train as a stuntman living at this artsy ranch in the hills of passage still there yeah. It's an ultra dina and store theun. It's called zawra theuns ranch and now he's died but people still talk about it. I know people who still go there. They have pagan festivals and it's kind of like a private. It really was kind of like the manson ranch way. Was i remember showing up their pigs pay his way hid castrate. The bowls. Yeah dad was in charge an had to teach us summer camp. They had a summer camp to come but in exchange for doing that he would table to jump off the buildings into these big bags yeah the burn bags out and he jumped motorcycles over things like over cars. I i don't get was it a stunt training place other stump in so because he got free rent for helping out on the ramp and they could do and he would jump off galloping horses zia jumped off gallup poll versus edge.
