What Song Do You Put On For A Big PR Attempt? | GSC. Episode 17

Danny Lehr: Welcome to Gas Station Cappuccino by Caffeine and Kilos. I am Danny Lehr. Dean Saddoris next to me.

Dean Saddoris: On the mic.

Danny Lehr: Between us is something different. Dean, what is going on? What is happening between us? Because people watching on YouTube can see, but the listeners, they're not going to be able to know what's going on, what's happening there.

Dean Saddoris: We got a drip cold-brew mechanism brewing right now. It's about a three hour brew time.

Danny Lehr: It's science kit.

Dean Saddoris: And it's actually dripping at a rate of 16 drips per 30 seconds, so roughly-

Danny Lehr: 24

Dean Saddoris: -20. Oh it's-

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah. Wait. 8 for, yeah, that's right. 30 to a minute?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, roughly. Yeah, so about three hours, four hours from now. At this rate it looks like maybe longer.

Danny Lehr: At this rate, it looks like we're gonna enjoy it tomorrow morning.

Dean Saddoris: Looks like some really good coffee. Really could, one or two really good cups of coffee out of this.

Danny Lehr: In the morning.

Dean Saddoris: In the morning.

Danny Lehr: Probably. Yeah, so it's a, there's a whole theme going on here. First time we used it we filmed, "This is how we brew it", and it was a total failure. It just made tea. The grind wasn't fine enough, we didn't put enough in there.

Dean Saddoris: Wasn't enough grinds, wasn't enough water. Or, it was too much water. I think we finally figured it out.

Danny Lehr: Yeah, it's true, 'cause you can't really, it's not like too few grinds is only a problem if you use a lot of water. If you use just a little bit of water, then it's the appropriate amount of grinds.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, but we also came to the conclusion that it was possibly too coarse of a grind.

Danny Lehr: Ah, too thick.

Dean Saddoris: But, a lot of cold brew's made with bigger grinds, which makes this whole thing very skeptical.

Danny Lehr: Yeah, so generally cold brew's made with thicker, more coarse grinds because it's smoother. So, the more fine the grind oftentimes can lead to more bitter coffee. And if you use a little coarser grind, then that leads to a little bit smoother coffee. Cold brew is smooth just by the way it's brewed, 'cause it's brewed with the cold water. It's not the hot water, but the coarse grinds help that.

Yeah, so here though, since it's, so it's literally dripping 30 drips per minute into a colander full of powder grinds. These things are grinded down into a fine powder.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, it's pretty much a-

Danny Lehr: Dean-

Dean Saddoris: ... like a flour consistency.

Danny Lehr: Dean rubbed some on his gums.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. Gums pretty fired up.

Danny Lehr: Yeah, 'cause it gets them going. One time it was a really fine powder-grind coffee and so we decided a good idea to take a little sniff.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, and that actually got you pretty jacked up.

Danny Lehr: It fired my, I started sweating like five minutes later. Instantaneously just fired me up. [A-Ron 00:02:37] did it, too.

A-Ron: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: Shit lit you up?

A-Ron: Did a back-flip.

Dean Saddoris: To the dome.

Danny Lehr: To the dome. I'm not encouraging people to do it, but I mean you should definitely try it.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. If you're over the age of 13.

Danny Lehr: If you're over the ... But probably under the age of 65. Because that might be overbearing there, as well.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, but it was interesting.

Danny Lehr: That sound is Dean chewing on ice by the way.

Dean Saddoris: I forget that I can't keep doing that. I forget sometimes though it's gonna be right in that mic.

Danny Lehr: Well, you gotta let people know.

Dean Saddoris: I just love ice.

Danny Lehr: Gotta let them know! That where Phil gets it from?

Dean Saddoris: I love ice. I don't know. I think it might be a-

Danny Lehr: Does Phil eat ice?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, he does.

Danny Lehr: Phil is Dean's dog-

Dean Saddoris: Phil loves ice.

Danny Lehr: ... You'll hear him bark on the show all the time.

Dean Saddoris: He loves ice.

Danny Lehr: Phil also loves eating coffee beans when they're dropped on the ground.

Dean Saddoris: He's got a, He's addicted to coffee beans.

Danny Lehr: He's got a pension for coffee beans.

Dean Saddoris: He does, and he goes absolutely ape-shit when he eats them.

Danny Lehr: He weighs, how much does he weigh, 12 pounds?

Dean Saddoris: No way, dude. Maybe like less than 10.

Danny Lehr: I bet he weighs 12 pounds.

Dean Saddoris: I don't think so. We'll put him on the scale.

Danny Lehr: What, you think he has hollow bones? He's not a bird.

Dean Saddoris: Dude, he's tiny.

Danny Lehr: He's a Chihuahua.

Dean Saddoris: That'd be my phone going off.

Danny Lehr: First the ice chips.

Dean Saddoris: Thought it was on silent.

Danny Lehr: Well you know, you live and you learn. Phil, he is a Chihuahua. He is small.

Dean Saddoris: He's tiny, too. He's a small Chihuahua.

Danny Lehr: He is.

Dean Saddoris: He's not like those bigger ones. You know like big ones running around.

Danny Lehr: You know big Chihuahuas. By the way, did you know Chihuahuas are actually sometimes they're one, sometimes number two, of the most euthanized dogs?

Dean Saddoris: Well yeah, because they're everywhere.

Danny Lehr: It's Chihuahuas and Pit Bulls. Which one is one, and which one is two, I think changes year to year.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. Pit Bull more for the violence, Chihuahua just because they're just so damn many of them.

Danny Lehr: I actually heard someone said, what happens is Paris Hilton posted a picture of her holding a Chihuahua and so then breeders just go crazy because demand goes way up. So then, they just increase the breeding of them, and then the demand goes down three months later and now there's all these Chihuahuas. It's an issue.

Dean Saddoris: You go down to Stockton, you just see them running around in packs roaming the streets.

Danny Lehr: Feral dogs.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. My buddy works there a lot doing roadside construction, stuff like that, and he sees packs of dogs all over the place in Stockton all the time. Just running around fighting other dogs and taking off in groups. It's like dog gangs. Lot of Chihuahuas. There's just Chihuahuas running around everywhere in Stockton.

Danny Lehr: They're like a-

Dean Saddoris: Or, anywhere you find any low-income areas, there's gonna be a lot of Chihuahuas. That's fact.

Danny Lehr: Huh. I did not know.

Dean Saddoris: Same with Pitt Bulls too, though. That's just how it is.

Danny Lehr: Interesting.

Dean Saddoris: Just like you go to like, you go uptown, you go to Beverly Hills, you're probably gonna find a lot of Golden Retrievers.

Danny Lehr: I wonder if the dog gangs, are they the same type of dogs? Or are there multiple breeds in one gang?

Dean Saddoris: Chihuahuas, I think some other kind of terrier stuff. He says there's a few Corgis, too.

Danny Lehr: Like small dogs.

Dean Saddoris: Small dogs.

Danny Lehr: So big dogs can't get into the small dog gang?

Dean Saddoris: No, there's a mixture of both. Sometimes the Pit Bulls will run with the Chihuahuas, he says. It'll be gangs of Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas running the streets. He said he sees them like every day. He says he sees it. He said it's crazy.

Danny Lehr: You gotta run with the dogs.

Dean Saddoris: He said it's absolutely nuts.

Danny Lehr: You can out-roam 'em.

Dean Saddoris: He said, "It's like you think I'm kidding, but they're everywhere."

Danny Lehr: Everywhere.

Dean Saddoris: This is Ben's brother, Chris. He says that they're everywhere. Thousands.

Danny Lehr: You said thousands?

Dean Saddoris: No, thousands. He says he sees at least 20-30 stray Chihuahuas a day working in Stockton, in that area.

Danny Lehr: We're gonna send him out tomorrow with a pitch counter and just have him click 'em off.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. He probably exaggerates a little bit, but he sees double digits a day.

Danny Lehr: That's insane.

Dean Saddoris: And there's no ... They're just everywhere. They just roam the streets.

Danny Lehr: I wonder if they have claimed territories like they're on one corner. Like they claim a corner? Dogs are territorial.

Dean Saddoris: Especially Chihuahuas. They're one of the most territorial pets you can get.

Danny Lehr: Napoleon complex.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, they don't screw around, and they bark really loud.

Danny Lehr: And frequently.

Dean Saddoris: And frequently.

Danny Lehr: Dude, so we got a couple emails. Well one, we got a comment on YouTube for one. We were talking about the best bad movie. We both like Bubba Ho-Tep. I vote Bubba Ho-Tep as the best bad movie of all time.

Dean Saddoris: That's a good one.

Danny Lehr: But our good friend, Jake [Pudence 00:07:37], he says the best bad movie is The Room.

Dean Saddoris: That is ... The Room? Is that about like a panic room?

Danny Lehr: I think so.

Dean Saddoris: I think I remember that vaguely. Someone's breaking into these rich people's house, and they're in this panic room and people are trying to break in.

Danny Lehr: The entire movie, they're in the room.

Dean Saddoris: I think I remember seeing the commercials for that.

Danny Lehr: It sounds awful.

Dean Saddoris: That sounds like, yeah. But sometimes, those movies that take place in one place kinda work sometimes. Sometimes they miss terribly.

Danny Lehr: Check this out. Someone asked me a question. I was being interviewed on another podcast, and they said, "OK. Rapid-fire." So I'm gonna do the rapid-fire questions with you that they did with me.

Dean Saddoris: OK.

Danny Lehr: First one relates to what we're talking about with movies. Well, my answer related to a movie. I guess yours doesn't. You're single, Dean. Just keep that in mind. It doesn't necessarily come into play, but it may. OK, so there's no lady friend in the picture anywhere.

Dean Saddoris: OK.

Danny Lehr: OK, nothing like that. Now, you are stranded on a deserted island, and you can have one person with you the entire time you're there. Whatever, just you two on this island. Who are you on that deserted island with?

Dean Saddoris: One other person on the planet?

Danny Lehr: One other person on the planet.

Dean Saddoris: Oh, man. I don't even know. That's a hard question.

Danny Lehr: You're not being very rapid-fire.

Dean Saddoris: Well that's not a rapid-fire question.

Danny Lehr: Oh, sure it is. I got my answer right away.

Dean Saddoris: Who's that?

Danny Lehr: That's fucking easy. Easy question. Tom Hanks! He's got experience.

Dean Saddoris: Oh, yeah. That's good. That's a good answer.

Danny Lehr: He's been there. He'll keep you alive. He'll help you build the raft.

Dean Saddoris: I would say one of those guys from Ultimate Survivor. Or, not Ultimate Survivor. What's it called? Dual Survivor.

Danny Lehr: You're gonna wanna go with one of the guys from a Survivor show.

Dean Saddoris: No, no, no. Dual Survivor. The guys that goed out in the woods together stranded in all the different parts of the world, and then they get out of there. One of them's like an ex-seal, the other one's more like an earthy hippie kinda guy. So it's kinda like both tactics, which one's superior in which climate kind of thing. They always butt heads on what they think they should do. It's actually a really good show.

Danny Lehr: Man, see. So you went-

Dean Saddoris: I'm going Dual Survivor, guys.

Danny Lehr: You went reality TV, where I went with someone with actual experience.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, yeah. Tom Hanks and his film crew, and the corner of Hawaii that they filmed that on, with the resort behind them.

Danny Lehr: He was on that island all by himself, and he got off the island, he survived.

Dean Saddoris: First off, he was not by himself.

Danny Lehr: He grew a great beard.

Dean Saddoris: He was with Wilson.

Danny Lehr: Well, yeah. That's true.

Dean Saddoris: Maybe I'd bring Wilson with me.

Danny Lehr: Well, you wouldn't get any argument from him. Well, at least not on day one.

Dean Saddoris: Maybe day 300 when I'm starting to hear his voice in my head.

Danny Lehr: And the other rapid-fire question: Dean, what's your favorite lift? Snatch, clean and jerk, bench-press. What's your favorite lift, get fired up and hit? This is like a lead up to the question. This isn't the actual rapid-fire question.

Dean Saddoris: Don't get me wrong, I love making a really good snatch, but there's something about making a baller jerk that just feels way more accomplished.

Danny Lehr: Aw, man. See, I would say snatch just because clean and jerks are so hard.

Dean Saddoris: Anybody can snatch.

Danny Lehr: Oh, that's not true.

Dean Saddoris: I'm talking like, anybody can put up a good snatch. Not many people can put up a big jerk.

Danny Lehr: Well, clean and jerk takes a mental toughness.

Dean Saddoris: I feel like I've gotten way more emotionally charged-

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah.

Dean Saddoris: ... to tears, almost from a big clean or a big jerk, or a big clean and jerk.

Danny Lehr: Well, because it's hard work. You know what else is interesting about that whole thing too, is talking about getting fired up for a lift. Get super fired up for a snatch and it just, I don't know how much that helps you 'cause it's so technical. It's not like pulling harder is gonna help, really. Whereas clean and jerk's like, nah man, you attack the bar it fucking matters.

Dean Saddoris: No I honestly, I'm gonna 100% say clean and jerk.

Danny Lehr: Alright, clean and jerk. So, this is the question. Clean and jerk PR attempt on the platform coming up. You get one song, and one song only. What is it?

Dean Saddoris: That's gonna be Future. What the hell's the name of that song? Poppin' Tags.

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah.

Dean Saddoris: Future, Poppin' Tags.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: I've PR'd to that song probably seven times.

Danny Lehr: That is a fucking slapper. You know, it's funny. I actually, my answer, I said Future. But I go Future, March Madness.

Dean Saddoris: See that's what Giletto does. When my buddy Giletto goes for a PR, he puts on March Madness.

Danny Lehr: And they're like, "Really? I did not expect that." Why would you not expect that?

Dean Saddoris: It's a good song.

Danny Lehr: I don't understand. Well here's the thing is, it gets you hyped and it's a different, you know, it's not like a-

Dean Saddoris: It's got a good beat drop in the beginning.

Danny Lehr: The thing is too, it's not like this stream core or fuck boy thing where you get all pumped up. March Madness, you get in the zone. March Madness puts me in flow state. You know, 'cause you kinda like get into it, you're pumped, but you're grooving with it. You're not just going crazy smashing shit. And that's what it really, so a big tent, yeah you wanna be fired up, but you don't want to be out of control fucking berserker fired up.

Dean Saddoris: You wanna be clean and jerk.

Danny Lehr: You still wanna be focused, you wanna be focused fired up.

Dean Saddoris: There's a point during the clean and jerk where you don't even care what's happening around you. I think that's after you stand up, the clean-

Danny Lehr: The bottom line is you don't really know where you are. If you're doing it right, you could be anywhere in the world.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. On a clean and jerk, for sure. Snatch, it's very easy to get distracted.

Danny Lehr: Hey, check this out. First time I cleaned 180 kilos, I had never cleaned anything near it. It was like 175 or maybe 173 was the most I'd ever cleaned. But I was coming off my shoulder surgery and I couldn't jerk because it wasn't ready for that, but I could do cleans. I think, for some reason I couldn't jerk. Maybe it was my elbow was bothering me or some shit.

Anyway, point is I wasn't jerking. I was only doing cleans that day. So I was looking for a big clean. And Big Mike was there, Big Mike Jenkins who has cleaned like 5 kilos over the world record for his age group and weight group, Okay?

Dean Saddoris: He's cleaned 200 kilos.

Danny Lehr: He's done like 200 kilos, exactly. I think maybe more than that, maybe like 205 or some shit, and at over 40 years old. It was like one of those things. So we're there, we're getting warmed up and he goes, "Hey. So what are you gonna clean today?"

I said, "Well, I'm not jerking. So I'm thinking."

He goes, "What? You gonna hit 170?"

I said, "Nah. I might fuck around and clean 180." And he starts laughing, 'cause he knows that's way over my PR.

He goes, "I will give you $100 if you clean 180 kilos." He goes into-

Dean Saddoris: Oh wait. Hold on, sorry. We're getting some action here.

Danny Lehr: Oh! Look at that. Oh, that's thick.

Dean Saddoris: That is thick.

Danny Lehr: That is juicy.

Dean Saddoris: This is already 10,000 times darker.

Danny Lehr: It's like tar. We're talking about cold brew.

Dean Saddoris: I'm pretty sure this is gonna make a concentrate.

Danny Lehr: Fuck, I hope so.

Dean Saddoris: That's what it's supposed to be.

Danny Lehr: I think that's what it's supposed to be.

Dean Saddoris: That looks like syrup.

Danny Lehr: That is what you want.

So anyway, look at it. It's barely making it around the horn.

Anyway, he says, "I'll give you $100." And he goes in his gym bag, pulls out $100 bill and he lays it on the ground in front of the platform and puts a little half kilo weight on it to hold it up. "I'm just gonna leave this right here."

Dean Saddoris: Taunt you.

Danny Lehr: Right? And we hadn't even started warming up yet. Alright. So now it's on. And here's the thing, I hadn't competed in a while and I had this surgery thing and I'm like  whatever, and I'm just getting it going. And so I hadn't really had a reason to get super pumped in training up till now. This was the time. The stars aligned, whatever's going on. But it was just one of those things where all of a sudden, I just got in the zone.

More than the $100, it was just the fact that he was so fucking certain that I couldn't do it, that he was willing to put that money on the line.

Dean Saddoris: Wow. Was this on the floor?

Danny Lehr: Oh yeah, from the floor. So I'm like, "This motherfucker." So I just completely zoned everybody out and pretty much as soon as we put any weight on the bar, like 70 kilos and on, I just didn't know where I was. Like it did not matter. I'd sat in a chair off to the side.

Dean Saddoris: No one really talks to you.

Danny Lehr: I didn't talk to anybody, nobody didn't fuck with ... I just sat there. I would take my attempt, and then I would sit down and close my eyes, and that was just it. I could hear the music going on, but I didn't watch a single other person's lift the entire session, 'cause I didn't have time for that bullshit, right?

And then went up there and before I had no idea what else is happening. Mike had on these fucking sunglasses and they were getting pumped, because I'm so pumped now he really wants me to do this. It was this Gucci Mane song on, I remember, because the video later ... There's this video of it and it goes to Mike, and he's got on these goofy ass sunglasses, and he's nodding his head to the song, this whole fucking thing.

Dean Saddoris: We'll link this video on the YouTube version of this podcast.

Danny Lehr: You should. And anyway, then I fucking smoke it, right? 'Cause when I say smoke it, I mean I triple-bounced it in the hole, but got out of there.

Dean Saddoris: That's impressive on its own.

Danny Lehr: But it was the whole thing though, the point of all this is-

Dean Saddoris: What was your best front squat at the time?

Danny Lehr: Oh, the most I've ever-

Dean Saddoris: Like, most recently?

Danny Lehr: The most I've ever front squatted is 192.

Dean Saddoris: So it's like [crosstalk 00:17:11].

Danny Lehr: Yeah, this is like 10 kilos under my best ever front squat. Probably like 70 kilos over my biggest clean, this is a big lift. But it was just funny because we were talking about being in the zone and how when you're in a heavy clean, you have no idea ... That was the entire thing. I had no clue what was happening around me. When I did open my eyes it was foggy in there. I was completely fucking out of it.

Dean Saddoris: That's great. I love that feeling.

Danny Lehr: And it doesn't happen often.

Dean Saddoris: No, it's rare.

Danny Lehr: There's this guy who wrote a book called Stealing Fire, and he has another one I think called Becoming Superman, but Stealing Fire's the more recent one. The entire thing is, he studies that flow state, and there's certain things you can do, they've done studies on like how you get into that flow state.

Dean Saddoris: But then it's artificial.

Danny Lehr: I think if you stack these certain things, whatever. So it's shit like risky things. If you get your heart rate jacked up-

Dean Saddoris: But why does there always have to be a way to manipulate a feeling? Why can't you just let it happen?

Danny Lehr: Well I think the deal there is-

Dean Saddoris: Someone's trying to sell you something.

Danny Lehr: Well I think the deal here is though, is you like that feeling? Does that feeling help you perform?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, but it's gonna come naturally when I'm performing.

Danny Lehr: Does it happen every single time?

Dean Saddoris: When it happens, it's supposed to happen I feel like. Right?

Danny Lehr: Right. But what I'm saying is this. Say that you were a-

Dean Saddoris: But if you tap into that feeling every day, then that feeling doesn't have an effect anymore.

Danny Lehr: Correct, so you can't do it every day. I believe you're correct. However, say competition. How would you like to know, if you're going to Nationals or whatever, just if you're going to a big weight-lifting meet, if you just knew you had an ace in the hole. I know if I do these three things, it's more likely to put me in that.

Dean Saddoris: I could understand that.

Danny Lehr: I think that's kind of the-

Dean Saddoris: Knowing what you need to do to get into it, but not necessarily doing it all the time. I can understand that.

Danny Lehr: Right. You can't do it every day, I don't think, 'cause that kind of ruins it. So anyway, [inaudible 00:18:57] risks. This dude's like, "Oh yeah, you get your heart rate up, that part of it and certain intensities and then if there's a little bit of risk and a little bit of creativity," and like these different things. So this dude talks about he takes his dog for a walk and they run up the mountain, and then when they get to the top, he hangs out for like a minute, and then he turns around and runs down this mountain. Something like some risk and that type of thing, anyway.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, tripping on a boulder then tumbling head-first down the rest of the mountain.

Danny Lehr: Flow state, dog. Worth it. #worthit. Look at how thick this shit it. There's like, it's at the bottom here and won't even spread out. It's like tar.

Dean Saddoris: It's gonna be really good.

Danny Lehr: This is the thickest coffee I've ever seen in my life.

Dean Saddoris: I don't know. That cold brew we make in the fridge is pretty thick.

Danny Lehr: That's true. I would like to just-

Dean Saddoris: I'm pretty sure you're not supposed to use five bags for five gallons of coffee.

Danny Lehr: I just really wanna over emphasize how thick this is, though.

Dean Saddoris: It's pretty thick. Honestly though, it looks like oil.

Danny Lehr: It does. It looks like oil.

Dean Saddoris: It looks like oil.

Danny Lehr: Bitch, you cooking? Who said anything about oil?

Dean Saddoris: Is this Texas? 'Cause that looks like oil. That's interesting. I dunno. But I do like, that state is-

Danny Lehr: It is incredible.

Dean Saddoris: It's an incredible state. I think that's the only reason why people do these kind of sports is to find that feeling.

Danny Lehr: Absolutely.

Dean Saddoris: It's like a nirvana feeling.

Danny Lehr: I can vividly ... Obviously not every time it's ever happened, but when I think about it, I can vividly remember three specific times that I've been in that. It's happened more than that, but there are like three times that really stand out. That's how powerful it is. You remember those moments.

Dean Saddoris: I actually hit that not that long ago, 'cause I had some issues when I busted my ankle, then I had some hip/back issues. Kinda put me out for a little bit and then I came back in a week ago, or so and cleaned 150 again.

Danny Lehr: Yes. I remember that.

Dean Saddoris: And that's when I hit that feeling right then.

Danny Lehr: Right before the lift?

Dean Saddoris: And after, too.

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah.

Dean Saddoris: Before and after.

Danny Lehr: Tunnel vision.

Dean Saddoris: After, I got emotional where I had to leave the room. My eyes started watering and stuff. I was like, "Fuck, man. This shit's hard."

Danny Lehr: Shit's hard.

Dean Saddoris: And it's fucking like, it just kicks your ass, and then to be able to stick it out and then come back. My ankle was fucked. It was totally fucked up.

Danny Lehr: It was totally fucked.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, it was totally twisted and sprained and black and blue. Having to just re-start when I was on a really good track and then deal with all the shit it takes to get strong again. That's why the turnover rate in weight lifting is just so high.

Danny Lehr: Getting strong is hard.

Dean Saddoris: It's so hard. It requires full attention.

Danny Lehr: Which is what makes Tom [Callous 00:21:43] weighing 198 pounds, back-squatting 815 pounds with just a knee wraps and a belt, no squat suit.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, I don't even want to get going on the squat suit stuff.

Danny Lehr: Extremely impressive.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. I think the whole entire squat suit thing is a joke.

Danny Lehr: Yeah?

Dean Saddoris: But that's my opinion.

Danny Lehr: It's a different sport.

Dean Saddoris: Well, I just don't see the point.

Danny Lehr: This is interesting.

Dean Saddoris: I guess that's what people probably think about when snatch clean and jerk, too I guess.

Danny Lehr: Brandon Lilly actually talks about how he got really good at equipped lifting, and then he decided, no. I'm done with this. I'm just gonna work on getting strong again. Quit wearing a squat suit and like, couldn't squat. Like he was squatting at what a thousand pounds or a thousand pounds in a squat suit, right?

And that's all he trained in, 'cause that's what he was like practicing in, right? That's what he was competing in. Took off the squat suit, went to squat like 500 pounds, fucking couldn't do it.

Dean Saddoris: Well, some of those suits-

Danny Lehr: [crosstalk 00:22:37]

Dean Saddoris: Well, some of those suits they put on, three, four hundred pounds onto your squat.

Danny Lehr: Well, if you know how to use them.

Dean Saddoris: Well, of course.

Danny Lehr: It's a skill. It's a technique, so like you sit into the suit, so you're no longer trying to squat the weight, you are squatting into the suit the right way. It doesn't make it less impress, like shit, I couldn't unrack that, you know what I mean?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, you still gotta unrack it, but that's, yeah it's a whole. And just trusting the suit.

Danny Lehr: Well, and yeah. It's a whole, I'm not trying to demean anybody who does that. Like I definitely could not do that right now.

Dean Saddoris: I just don't understand it.

Danny Lehr: It's just a very, it's a very different thing.

Dean Saddoris: Mm-hmm (affirmative). I just love raw strength and raw kinda strength sports.

Danny Lehr: Lifestyle.

Dean Saddoris: And that's why I prefer like, weight lifting and raw power lifting. I find that extremely impressive.

Danny Lehr: Oh, yeah. Speaking of raw dog, okay. So I talked about on podcast how I got my vasectomy.

Dean Saddoris: Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Danny Lehr: I wanna say also, it's one of those things no one talks about. You start talking about it, all of a sudden everybody's got a fucking story.

And in fact, there have been a couple individuals, one individual who you know, who I won't name on the podcast, but he listens to these, so he'll know I'm talking about him, hit me up, he's like, "Alright, man. After hearing your story, I went and made my appointment. I'm doing this. Am I gonna need a ride home. Do I need a whatever?", it's like-

Dean Saddoris: Will I need a ice pack?

Danny Lehr: Yeah, I'm changing the world. People are getting their nuts snipped just from listening to this podcast.

Dean Saddoris: It's a powerful platform.

Danny Lehr: So check this out, though. Let me give you a little follow up. So after ten weeks, they say it's important to go get checked. Right? Like you know, a sperm count check to make sure it worked. I don't know, I never, like. I was like, yeah, okay. How would it not work? 'Cause they don't just like cut your vas deferens, they take like an inch of it out. They cut out like a full inch, they put two clamps on one side, one clamp on the other side and then they cauterize it.

Like how the fuck does that ever, like is that not effective?

Dean Saddoris: 'Cause they're no longer connected.

Danny Lehr: And it's not just like they cut it, it might come back together. Like, they take an inch of it out. Like how ... Anyway, so then Friday night, my wife and I were at this little date, on a date basically. We were sitting around this campfire, this fire thing with another couple we didn't know, and they're in their like mid-fifties. We're just talking having a good time and the guy goes, "Yeah, man. Like a crazy thing happened," I don't even know how it came up, basically, he said, "Yeah. Dude, so we were done having kids. Three years later, all of a sudden, my wife's pregnant." And he got a vasectomy, and they're like what the fuck? And the doctor's like, "Send in a sample", and she was like, "Oh, you asshole. I'm not like cheating on him."

Dean Saddoris: No, exactly. That's exactly what happened.

Danny Lehr: And so, well, check it out. So he sent in a sample, he was like, "Oh, no. There's a few little swimmers in there."

Dean Saddoris: Oh.

Danny Lehr: Three years later, all of a sudden boom. And be like, "What the hell?".

So then my wife and I get in the car and I start driving and we just look at each other and she goes, "So, ...", And I cut her off and I go, "Yeah. Next week gonna get that checked, hon."

That first thing we said to each other as soon as we got in the car. We both knew exactly what's going on.

Dean Saddoris: I'll call doctor-

Danny Lehr: Dr. Weiner.

Dean Saddoris: ... Dr. Weiner tomorrow.

Danny Lehr: So, check this out. Dr. Weiner, he gave me a prescription, alright? Like doctor's orders. So you go into the lab, and you just go into like whatever, Quest. Quest Lab. So check this out though. So I go in there this morning, and it's like a take home thing. They don't have like a room with the porno mags, like you hear about, whatever. It's just like, nah.

You go in, you go home-

Dean Saddoris: That's a shame.

Danny Lehr: ... You're supposed to like collect a sample, bring it back. Aw, total bummer. Don't even get me started. So anyway, so I go in though, and I thought, "Are they going to ... ah, we'll see", and sure as shit, I walk in there, pull up to the counter. There's like this 19 year old girl sitting behind the counter working, of course.

I'm like, "Hey, I think I'd just like a pick-up thing. 'Cause you know I've got a, I got a vasectomy and ...", and she's like, "Oh, yeah. Do you have your doctor's orders?" I gave it to her. And she turns around and she pulls out, of course, a clear plastic cup.

Okay, here you go. Actually, hold on. And I'm just like, of course, it's a clear cup. I'm gonna bring this thing back in? Anyway, so I go "Hold on." And then she gets out a bag, a clear plastic bag, and seals the cup in there. "Alright, take this home, collect the sample, and bring it back whenever." And I was like, so you know, in this clear cup, and like when I bring it back. So I walk it in the door, [inaudible 00:27:00]

Dean Saddoris: You can keep it in your backpack or your fanny pack.

Danny Lehr: Like a drug deal, and walk to the counter, like pull it out from under my shirt.

Dean Saddoris: Brown bag it.

Danny Lehr: Well, I'm thinking, I just might disown it. Just like walk in there, swinging that thing around.

Dean Saddoris: That's appropriate.

Danny Lehr: Well, that's what I'm saying, though. That's exactly my point. Like, I understand the cups, those are clear cups whatever, but you don't have like some sort of a, like you're not gonna give me like, why you giving me a clear bag and this clear cup? Wouldn't you think they'd be like, here's a like, give it to me in a bag or something?

Dean Saddoris: What else do they do at this doctor office?

Danny Lehr: Well, it's not a doctor's office. It's just like a testing place.

Dean Saddoris: Oh, that's right.

Danny Lehr: It's like Quest Diagnostics.

Dean Saddoris: Honestly, like you hold it the right way, who the hell's gonna know what the hell's in there besides you?

Danny Lehr: I guess.

Dean Saddoris: You roll it up or something, kinda hold it.

Danny Lehr: I guess. That's a pretty big cup.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: It's way too big.

Dean Saddoris: Or you just hold the cup around it, like a cup of coffee.

Danny Lehr: Could've given me a much smaller cup.

Dean Saddoris: That is a lot. I'm not a horse.

Danny Lehr: I'm just gonna collect a sample and come back. It's gonna be awhile.

Dean Saddoris: That's like on Jackass Two, when they drink the horse semen.

Danny Lehr: Well, so I told her. I said, "Alright, well"-

Dean Saddoris: Remember that?

Danny Lehr: Oh, fill it up, bring it back? I said, "Alright, well, I'll just pull around back. I'll be back in in a minute."

Dean Saddoris: Well, I'm just going to the car.

Danny Lehr: I'll just pull around back.

Dean Saddoris: I'll put on a nice podcast.

Danny Lehr: I'll be in the alley. [inaudible 00:28:29]

Dean Saddoris: You got any lot lizards around here?

Danny Lehr: Did you ask her what the record is?

Dean Saddoris: For time?

Danny Lehr: For time?

Hey, what's the quickest you got one of these things back?

Dean Saddoris: Surprised.

Danny Lehr: So, I'm gonna, oh, three minutes? Alright. You gonna count me down or-

Dean Saddoris: The chair in the corner of the lobby looks pretty good. You got Home Décor magazine?

Danny Lehr: Hey, where's the Victoria's Secret catalog?

Dean Saddoris: Hey, where's the Men's Health?

That's a good call.

Danny Lehr: Then, I realized that, too. I was driving, then I realized when I was going over this whole clear cup, clear bag thing. There's no instructions, it wasn't like A. So, it needs to come in fresh. Or you gotta refrigerate this sample, or freeze it. Like, there was no, it was just like, hey, bring it back whenever.

Dean Saddoris: Well, I'm sure if there is any sperms in there, and they die, they're still in there.

Danny Lehr: Oh, I didn't really think of that.

Dean Saddoris: Well, there's a reason why my I.Q. is 130.

Danny Lehr: Sperm knowledge. That's the key.

No, they're still in there, for sure. But you'd think there'd be like, I don't know, I just feel like there could've been some instruction, other than like, oh, collect a sample, bring it back. You know like, hey, I don't know, maybe not.

Maybe it doesn't matter, and nothing else matters. I don't know.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. That's a, you know.

Danny Lehr: I can't. And if you don't.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. Interesting.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: These things are escalating over here with the cold brew.

Danny Lehr: Oh, that. It is.

Dean Saddoris: I can already tell, this is gonna obviously be good, and it's obviously working so.

Danny Lehr: First time it was like tea.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, first two times, actually. We did another, we did it again with more coffee and less water, but we didn't change the grounds.

Danny Lehr: I just, I cannot emphasize to people listening, how thick this is.

Dean Saddoris: Well, just picture it like, you know, an oil spill.

Danny Lehr: Yeah. Like used motor oil.

Dean Saddoris: Just picture it like a beautiful oil spill in the Atlantic.

Danny Lehr: The beautiful gloss of oil right outside.

Dean Saddoris: Nice shiny seagull-

Danny Lehr: An oil slick.

Dean Saddoris: ... covered in oil.

Danny Lehr: Yeah, just picture the Exxon Valdez.

Now, we're not talking fresh oil. This is like used motor oil.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, that's true. Yeah, that's a good call.

Danny Lehr: This is like, haven't changed your oil in ten months.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: Like, we're like 10,000 miles. This is like the 10,000 mile oil change.

Dean Saddoris: This is like the oil leak on your grandpa's car in the driveway, with the silver pan that he's got laying there for the last 25 years.

Danny Lehr: Like a '67 Plymouth. That's what's going on here.

Dean Saddoris: You know, those pans, they always find a way to just get on you somehow.

Danny Lehr: Dude.

Dean Saddoris: As a kid, it always happened.

Danny Lehr: Now, this is gonna be cold coffee, cold brew. Dean, you're chewing on your ice over there, 'cause you're drinking iced coffee.

Now, you primarily drink iced coffee. You very rarely drink hot coffee.

Dean Saddoris: Correct.

Danny Lehr: Why?

Dean Saddoris: Well, I like the taste better, honestly.

Danny Lehr: Right.

Dean Saddoris: And I also don't like the patience it requires to drink hot coffee. And I'm never really like drinking coffee to warm up. I just prefer it, I don't know.

Danny Lehr: Right.

Dean Saddoris: If there's no other coffee, and I-

Danny Lehr: It's funny. It does taste different.

Dean Saddoris: ... I'll drink it.

Oh, absolutely taste different.

Just like warm milk and cold milk taste different, you know what I mean? It's like there's no-

Danny Lehr: Well, it brings out different tones, not tones but-

Dean Saddoris: Flavor notes.

Danny Lehr: Notes.

There's the ice right there.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, I just prefer the taste. That's the main reason.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: And just the, it's refreshing.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: It's just good.

If there was like no, like if I could just drink iced coffee all day, without getting totally cracked out, I probably would.

I love the taste of it.

Danny Lehr: I like iced coffee. I like hot coffee. I'm not against hot coffee, but here's the thing about iced coffee, is really my preference more than iced or hot, I really like brew methods. Like I really like cold brew. Like cold brew coffee is just so fucking good.

Dean Saddoris: See, I like cold brew, but I prefer cold coffee.

Danny Lehr: Cold, standard brew coffee.

Dean Saddoris: I prefer cold standard brew coffee over cold brew. Hundred percent.

Danny Lehr: Now, again I-

Dean Saddoris: But I do love cold brew.

But if I had a choice of like, here's this one, here's this one, and I knew already how they would taste individually, it's not like some random, whatever. I would choose the coffee that was brewed and then put on ice and then chilled in like a 'frigerator.

Danny Lehr: Interesting.

Like that one shitty, oh, it's not up there. Like the one shitty cold brew maker we had, that's essentially what it did.

Dean Saddoris: We had brewed it cold.

Danny Lehr: Oh, that was, yeah.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, sometimes, I'm talking like, you know, you go to Starbucks or something-

Danny Lehr: Hot coffee and poured over ice.

Dean Saddoris: ... and they brew the blonde roast in the thing, and then they put it in the fridge, and then they pour, like I would prefer. I prefer [inaudible 00:33:33].

Danny Lehr: Podcast contest.

Dean Saddoris: We haven't done one of those in awhile.

Danny Lehr: Haven't done one in awhile.

So first though, [Eric Parker 00:33:38] said, "I would say that the Dark Knight was not only one of the best second movies, but one of the greatest movies ever". And he sent that from his iPhone.

Dean Saddoris: You know what?

Danny Lehr: So last, we were talking about-

Dean Saddoris: Aaron. Eric or Aaron?

Danny Lehr: Eric.

Dean Saddoris: Eric. I'm gonna completely agree with Eric.

Danny Lehr: Oh.

Dean Saddoris: Batman begins was like a great set up movie, but it was not anything remotely as good as the Dark Knight, or the Dark Knight rises. Either or.

But the Dark Knight is my favorite super hero movie of all time without question.

Danny Lehr: Eric Parker. Dean Saddoris. Simpatico.

Dean Saddoris: I agree with him.

Danny Lehr: Same-

Dean Saddoris: That's the best super hero movie ever made, according to my charts.

Danny Lehr: Wow.

Dean Saddoris: That's a great movie.

Danny Lehr: Hmm.

Dean Saddoris: R-I-P.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

I wonder what my favorite sequel is.

I don't know. I don't watch super hero movies.

Dean Saddoris: Well, see, I don't either though, but Batman's hardly a superhero. 'Cause he's just a man with money that has-

Danny Lehr: He's just a man.

Dean Saddoris: He's basically like 007 in a costume.

Danny Lehr: Right.

Dean Saddoris: And not funded by the government.

Danny Lehr: Right.

Dean Saddoris: Self-funded.

Danny Lehr: Right.

Dean Saddoris: But, yeah. I don't know. That's a fucking great movie.

Danny Lehr: Did you see that newer one-

Dean Saddoris: And should've made it on our list of, I don't know how I, I definitely overlooked that. Major overlook.

Danny Lehr: But what's the movie with Harley Quinn in it?

Dean Saddoris: That's Suicide Squad.

Danny Lehr: Suicide Squad. You see it?

Dean Saddoris: It was terrible.

Danny Lehr: It's okay. So I haven't seen it and I don't really know anything about it, other than-

Dean Saddoris: It's another DC failure.

Danny Lehr: ... Halloween for the past three years, I feel like 30% of women are dressed like Harley Quinn.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: And I'm like, "Do I have to watch this movie so I know what the fuck's going on?", or is it just that everybody has a torn up wife beater and a fucking bat and they can grow pigtails. Like is it just like a go to costume?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, it's pretty easy.

Danny Lehr: I think, you know what? Shit, this year, I'm dressing like Harley Quinn.

Dean Saddoris: You should.

Danny Lehr: Fucking plot twist.

Dean Saddoris: You should.

Danny Lehr: You know what I mean?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, no. The movie sucks. I never even really liked the Suicide Squad concept either.

Danny Lehr: I gotta grow my hair out again.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: Oh, that's what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna dress Maddy. 'Cause she's got blonde hair and no one can tell her. I'm just gonna dress Maddy like it.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah.

Danny Lehr: And then I'll tell everyone it was me, 'cause she looks just like me.

Dean Saddoris: That'll probably be a pretty good costume for her, 'cause of her hair.

Danny Lehr: Yeah.

Dean Saddoris: It's already half way there.

Danny Lehr: Yeah. Half the time, she's got like blood dripping down her face, whatever, too, so.

Dean Saddoris: Yeah. You just gotta paint her face white, and I think she has like-

Danny Lehr: No, she can be, I don't have to paint her face white, have you seen her?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, but it's gotta be like white, white.

Danny Lehr: Tell me have you seen her?

Dean Saddoris: Yeah, that movie sucked. God. Not as bad as Justice League, though. Jesus Christ. Talk about a shit movie. I watched that when we were on the way back from the Arnold. Literally almost put me to sleep.

Danny Lehr: Oh, man.

Dean Saddoris: It is so bad.

Danny Lehr: Oh, man.

Dean Saddoris: The villain was just like, oh, God.

Danny Lehr: It never ends, huh?

Dean Saddoris: Anybody, if you like Justice League, then just stop listening to this podcast, 'cause you have zero taste.

Danny Lehr: There we go. Thank you for listening. This has been Gas Station Cappuccino by Caffeine and Kilos. Alright, peace out.

Dean Saddoris: See ya.

Danny Lehr: [inaudible 00:37:00]

Dean Saddoris: [inaudible 00:37:01] All aboard.
