Ep 3 – Summer | Better Together @awfulapartOn February 28, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
I can’t do this anymore. Please don’t say that. There’s nothing to say, just, I can’t make this work. But we can do it together. I just thought that by now, I would have figured this out, at this age, I’d be way better at this than I was before. But now I’m like just the same amount of shitty that I was 10 years ago. But 10 years ago you didn’t have me. I’m really good at this kind of thing. I just thought I could do it on my own. Do you want to start over? We should start over. Yeah, yeah.. I want to do that. It’s kind of a mess here. It doesn’t look anything like the box. I’m pretty sure the box said this was level 5 and I’m pretty sure that’s the hardest level. But I still followed all the directions. And were they upside down? Are you going sailing? No. Why? Well, you’re looking at captain’s hats. Oh, I just think they’re really cute. Yeah, in a certain situation, maybe. Like what kind of situation? Like on a boat. Oh, I don’t go on a lot of boats. I’m just saying, a girl on a boat with a captain’s head is cute, girl in a Starbucks with a captain’s hat is kind of weird. I think I can make it a thing. Good luck with that. Are we supposed to install a firewall for ITS next week? Yeah. Monday or Tuesday? It’ss the 7th, which is a – Oh, shit. It’s my mom’s birthday tomorrow. Oh, that’s nice. No, I haven’t even thought about what to get her. Shit. Get her a gift card or something. No it has to be something sweet. Something that shows that I care. I know. Windshield wiper blades. Why? Well, think about it’s like you’re saying you care about her safety while she’s driving. How sweet is that? Yeah, I’m going to keep that as it maybe. I’m headed out for the day. I’m gonna
go meet my friend Kat. I like cats. Is she cute? She’s like 20 years younger than you. You didn’t answer my question. She’s a lesbian. You still didn’t answer my question. She’s got crabs. Yes. She’s very cute. Now we’re talking. Hey, Keith, we’re looking for ideas for Farah’s mom’s birthday gift, got any? For Valentine’s Day, I got Jennifer an oiil change for a car. See and that goes perfect with wiper blades. Yes, that’s the part right there, right there. Yeah. I just don’t think it’s going to work. You just have to picture it. Use your imagination. This is a Led Zeppelin inspired music video and we need to bring out the fucking Led. Like you and Avi are down in a meadow, and there’s an army of vicious orcs attacking you. Yeah- and just when it seems like everything is hopeless, I swoop in on a huge dragon and I’m like shredding my ax and we’re like spraying fire all over the place. And it’s fucking awesome. Yeah. So picturing it isn’t really the problem. I just don’t think it’s feasible. For instance. Where the fuck are we gonna get a dragon? We don’t need a real dragon. I would just sit on a log or something and we’ll paint it in post. It doesn’t have to be hard. Actually, it’s incredibly hard and involving to do something like that. Avi. Would you like to jump in here or? Yeah. If this is the direction we’re going in, then I also want a dragon. Great. I’ll take a break. We just need one to two dragons. I see a lot of things happening, I see scantily clad women. Thank you. So I’m opening my new store soon. Oh what store? It’s an online store for the jewlery I’ve been making. That’s awesome. DIY jewelry is like a really huge thing right now. I mean, it’s not really DIY at that point, though, right? What do you mean, DIY means do it
yourself. Yeah, exactly. But you’re the one doing it . Right, Farah. It’s 100 percent DIY by me. That’s so cool. That’s awesome. I know. I can’t wait to get it going, actually. Speaking of which, shouldn’t you be wearing that necklace with the blue beads that I made you? Uhm. You know what? My coworker, she loved it so much. I gave it to her. She wears it all the time around the office, it looks great on her. Oh, don’t you work with all guys? Did I say co-worker, I meant client. She’s a client of ours. Don’t you guys install like computer systems and software and stuff? Yeah, why? I mean, like, wouldn’t you have to go to a location to do that? Why would your client be around the office all the time? Right. This one… She owns the building… Well, I guess that makes sense. You know, I’m just really glad people are out there wearing my jewelry, like word of mouth and out in person is the best advertisement there. That’s what I hear, actually. Didn’t you need a gift for your mom for her birthday? Inhaling to Warrior One. I don’t know. You should reconsider. I think using a dragon would be pretty cool. I don’t have a problem with dragons, Jelisha. The fact that it’s a dragon isn’t the issue. Sounds like it’s the issue. We can’t have a fucking dragon. We don’t have the capability to produce a dragon. It’s not like you use a real dragon. You just add it in post. Please help me understand what you mean when you say real dragon. What about if you use the dog dragon from the Neverending Story? No type of dragon is feasible. We have a budget of like seventy two dollars for this music video. How about this? San Tropez. Yacht. Perfect. James Cameron. Next. A predator crash lands in Brooklyn. And the car is on fire. A Tyrannosaurus rex. In an underwater research facility. But they’re on the other side of the rainbow. And they’re on levitating bikes. I hate to break it to you, but with you being so picky and only having a budget of $72, I don’t think your special effects are going to be that great. So I realized that the guys who go to the gym all the time are they’re like really attractive because it shows a deep connection to their spirituality. You sure it’s not just because they
really fit? I didn’t even think about that. Hey Rex. Well, hi, Ferris, how are you? Did you bring me anything today? Sorry. Not today. Rex, your necklace. So cute. I love it. Yeah, I got from – It’s blue. It sure is blue Rex, and you know, I actually made one for Farah. I think I have a picture -. Rex, you never finished telling me about Vietnam. That was back in the days when I wore a younger man’s skin. We should go. He’s gonna be like that for a while. Did you just give that guy a war flashback? Oh, no, he was in Vietnam in 93 for a Frampton concert. Oh, you know, it’s just it’s so weird. It looks just like that necklace that I made for you back then. So weird. Dammit Avi, we can’t have people riding in fucking dragons. I know that I was just messing with Alex. Yeah but, alex is serious. He really thinks we can just pop in any special effects in post. Yeah. That’s because Alex is really fucking stupid. Hey, hey, look. Why do you hate dragons so much? I swear to God. Shit. Farah text me this Morning. How did they miss that? So your mom really doesn’t wear jewelry at all? Yeah, she doesn’t. Is that like, an Arabic thing? Yeah, yeah, sure. Hi. Question for you. What the fuck is up with dragons right now? Are dragons in right now? Like you wouldn’t leave. I should get my Mom a Dragon. Not a real one, though. A real one? You know, just Skype her tomorrow and say happy birthday and ask if she got your present yet. And when she says no, you just bought yourself like two more days. That is genius. How’s the music video going? It’s going to look so cheap. Everyone wants special effects. What if you make the whole thing look cheap on purpose? Like that’s the look that you are going for. OK. I can see that. Right? Did Ryan ever finish that Lego set that I got you guys? Oh, my God, you fucking genius. Yep. OK. I got to go. You’re the best. We are going to Toys R Us. Let’s go. Hey. Hey. So I’m I’m really sorry about this morning. I don’t know what it is about Legos they get me like really, really worked up. But I’m chilling now. Well get ready to get worked up again because we got some work to do. Hey, Mom. Happy birthday. Hi, Farah. How are you? Good. How are you? Great. I wish you were here. I know. Me, too. Did you get my present in the mail? Yes, I did. You did? Yes. You want to see it? Yeah. Look at that. Oh, it came to your address? I love it. Thank you. Okay. You have to go. Love you. Love you. She stole my fuckin trend.
