Chad: I always do, every single time I hear that commercial.
Joel: So I posted on Facebook this week that Spaceballs was released however 30 years ago or whatever it was, and my favorite line is when they're combing the desert, "We didn't even found shit."
Chad: While they were combing the desert, the white dudes have a comb, and the black dudes have a pick.
Chad: It was awesome.
Joel: Yeah, it's funny shit. I see your fort is as big as mine.
Chad: Love it.
Joel: Yeah, dude. You've been a traveling man. I was smart enough to take a little time off. But you had to go out to Denver last week.
Chad: Yeah. No, I had a great time. Louise Grant from Jobg8. Julie was actually on stage. She fucking killed it. I was her roadie, let's put it that way, which was awesome.
Joel: She is number one, were you like standing ovation, go baby go.
Chad: It was awesome. We go to a lot of these industry conferences.
Joel: We do.
Chad: And it's really cool because you see at lunch with the guys from TalkPush and so on, Bill Fanning and Jonathan Duarte, just all these guys that you see.
Chad: The things that stick out about a conference is what matters, right? As soon as you come in, you know how they give you the bag full of like, I say in most cases junk. It's got all these cheap tchotchkes and shit, right?
Chad: So Louise and group, they give you a bag, and it had beers in it.
Joel: Were they in a cooler or something? Just warm beer?
Chad: They were warm, yeah. So you had to get your own ice, not a ... I can do that for goodness sakes.
Chad: But giving of the beer was pretty awesome. So, that's a big applause.
Joel: Okay. So was this Denver, Colorado based beer?
Chad: Yes, yeah.
Chad: It was all local brews.
Joel: How many?
Chad: I think there was just one per, but Louise gave me a special bag because she knows we like beer, that had six Senators or something like that.
Joel: I feel like this whole beer thing is a little bit like thanks to us. A little bit, just a little bit.
Chad: It could be. It could be.
Chad: But I have to say that was pretty awesome.
Joel: This whole ... Yeah, the spread of alcoholism, you know God bless the Chad & Cheese Show.
Chad: That's like TAtech. You go to TAtech, whenever we're on stage they open the bar. I mean Pete and Peter at TAtech. It's like no they get it. Then obviously SmashFly. We were on stage at SmashFly just a-
Joel: Bucket of beer.
Chad: Yeah, a bucket of beer was brought to us. So pretty much wherever we go they understand that it's kind of written in our silent contract, I guess you could say.
Joel: In Belgium, I presented at a bar.
Joel: That's I can die a happy man now at a bar.
Chad: At Tyrone everybody was faced forward but the bar was at the back and they brought the bar in for us. So all we did was go to the back of the room and we sat at the bar and pretty much did our talk during that. But we turned the entire room around because the bar was at the back of the room. That's good shit dude.
Joel: Yeah, and we've been really good at our server skills lately.
Joel: Honing those.
Chad: We're trying.
