Gary says that’s not true and everyone is now weighing in, the movies are not free in flight in 95% of cases, Nate was wrong. “that tastes like a Keebler elf died and is decomposing in your mouth along with a broken taco shell and the tears of the grieving family members of the Escobar flight” – Adam on fiesta mix.
Adam says he has a learning disability in that everyone that talks to him is retarded and misinforms him.
Adam is talking about international film sales and how brokers sell the rights overseas, Adam comments on the modern era of having 11 jobs instead of one career, making an independent film is analogous to modern life.
