Welcome to good people, cool things, the podcast featuring conversations with entrepreneurs, writers, musicians and other creatives. I'm your host, Joey held, and today's guest is Ashley m the founder of feed this house, a website dedicated to food, family and a whole lot more. Ashley talks about how she started her site, her top tip for taking great photos and her new role with dove on two family right here in Austin. Let's dive on in. I'm here with Ashley from feed this House. Ashley, how are you have a dog in your lap and not anymore. This is Laur Room. I'm time to get time to get serious. Now exactly. You're on the podcast now, so we can't, we can't play Roun. This is serious podcast. Shake off my hands. Get Ready. That was my public speaking professor in collegees tip was any time you're about to present, you literally shake out the bad feeling. So she really, and then she encouraged us to do it before our presentations, and I did. I tried to not be in the class while I was doing except that, yeah, weird, and maybe lose a little credibility if I was. Did it work? Yeah, help me. Oh really, less nervous and there she knows what she's especially because some of those presentations fool I was faking my way through it. I remember doing speech class in high school and it was basically the worst like I got. So I do not like to stand in public speak. I don't know if you do, but like and in front of your peers in high school, which is like everyone's awkward. Oh yeah, it's your worst phase. Yeah, and insecure, and I mean it was just terrible and the I think the subjects they gave us were really awkward. Anyway, it was just I and then they'd video and you had to re watch the video in front of people. Oh No, which is like the worst. Yeah, that's that's just watching the video at all would be terrible. Yeah, it's also have others critiquing you. Yes, like a film session, but but we're first. You're not getting, said, millions of notice to do it. Now you are a mother, but we don't want to ask you any mom questions, although I'm curious because I like hearing horror stories. Anytime I chat with a musician, I like asking about their worst gig. Yeah, likewise with photographers, anything like that. So what's the worst part about being a mom. Oh, like the worst part of being a mom were like the tasks that I kind of like dread, either one whatever. Okay, so this will be something that years back, will probably haunt me for recording this and it's documented, but our daughter is like the worst with bathtime. Like we've I mean since she was born. We put her in the bathtub when she was a newborn and she screamed crying, and so everyone want to talk about how bathtime was like this lovely bonding experience and how wonderful it was, and we had this child like read in the face, just screaming. So we brought like a space heater into the bathroom. We were like, clearly, she's cold. Nope, didn't work. Like we've tried everything. We bought like several different baby baths, all these different techniques didn't matter. Fast forward, she's six years old now and every single time we do a bath, which is how many times, she's just like awful, like she complains...

...that she doesn't want to take a bath and then she has so much hair and then brushing her hair is like a nightmare and anyway, we kind of like fight over like who's doing it because Max is like really easy. Put Him in the Tub and he's just like happy, like what it was. We're like, who gets the short end of the stick? Love you, Olivia. I know you're going to be mad at me for posting this later. Are you a Kelevin and hobs Fan? I don't even know what that is. What? Sorry, okay, we are stopping the podcast so that Ashley can read up on Kelvin. Huh, it's a cartoon comic. Oh, the believe, one thousand nine hundred and eighty five. Okay, now I do what your tank because they said Kelvin Calvin. Yeah, okays, not the yeah, for sure. Yeah, I didn't know know they still made those. They don't. We haven't made one in twenty five years, but I think it's the greatest comic book of All Time. Yeah, or Comic Strip, I should say. Yeah, there's several books, but one of the recurring themes is calvin taking baths and he also hates it a lot. You can, you can, maybe we cans bath incorporate that. Yeah. Has Olivia ever pretended to be like a sea monster and like splash the water so that it all falls out and it's all just like on the floor. No, we had an epic temper Tantrum when she was about three that I recorded. I was supporting her, making sure she didn't thrush her head back and hit it, but I showed it to the doctor because I was like, is this normal? I feel like she's broken perhaps, but he confirmed that she's just three and that's fine. But not know, it's just that's that's probably my least favorite bestime. Excellent. Well, from the worst to some of the best. Now some of the best. Let's let's talk about feed this house. How long have you been doing this? How many houses have you fed? Let's get the deeds. All right, so the background to feed this house is when we moved here I was a working adult, full time working adult. I was in pharmaceutical sales in Ohio and we moved here. Our daughter was eight months at the time and I was staying home with her. So I went from like a full time working person, I had freedom and I was out and about having adult conversations, to being like home alone with eight months child who didn't speak and I knew no one here. So I would scroll through instagram all the time or like yelp reviews and come weekend. I'd be like we're going here, here, here, like these are the places I've seen that I want to go. And so feed this house kind of started as as like that's my audience of like I know what it's like like it's a grind to be a parent and you're just like your head is down during the week because you're just like focused all week and you're making dinners that aren't always appreciated and you're eating like just your kids scraps and you're just like but on the weekend I'm gonna Shine, and so I just I think that's like why. That's like was my like motivating factor. So our daughter went to school, she started school three days a week and that's when I was like, okay, I can work on a way up site and get this thing going, and it's gone from there like it...

I started joining I met you through Austin Food Bloggers Alliance, shout out, and I met wonderful people and it's just kind of like kept meeting, like this is a community that I'm in that I just I'm amazed that there's so many awesome people. I'd never knew that that would be part of it. Yeah, it's so strange to think. Like, having lived in other places, I've found both in the food and music communities in Austin it's just like so welcoming and there's so many different walks of life coming together. Yeah, over a common thing, and I feel like and other cities I've lived in not so much. No, you don't think I don't know. We always talked about that, like if we were to move back to Colomas, would we have a different like vantage, like a viewpoint of it? But yeah, I just I had no idea. I knew there were several bloggers within the city, but I had no idea that it would be such a community, that people would be so supportive, and they truly are, which is I mean it's amazing, it's awesome. So have you found that? You have have shown on the weekends now have the goal has been accomplished. Now it's kind of flipped for it's like either we have media tastings or things scheduled like all weekends. So it's basically like the weekends almost my more worktime, or I've been to media tastings and things all week so come the weekend I'm like, I don't want to touch my camera I don't want to like I'm I just want to be like in sloth mode at home without makeup and with my kids like. So it just kind of depends on times without kids. Yeah, it just kind of depends on the weekend. Like last weekend I felt like I worked all weekend, which is great. It's more helpful on the weekends, like if we do a media tasting, I have my husband's help to wrangle the children while I'm getting pictures and I'm not like having to pay for childcare while I'm going to get something done. So that's kind of how we stack it up. Love it. Yeah, now you mentioned sometimes you never want to pick up a camera on the weekends because it's been just a busy week going to all your media events, be and the bell of the ball the most popular. You're using a camera right now, which I admire, the multitasking, because I'd probably I just be looking at the camera the whole time and making no eye contact with my guests. So I admire your ability to listen to me as I ramble through this question. Well, I'm just looking at my this is a lot. I mean I do it regularly. It's and I've told you this, in a rare moment of me being polite and kind, that I think your photo skills, your photography, have has like leapt to new heights over the past few months or so. And what's what's your secret? Have you been taking lessons on the side? Is it just getting more experience? You stopped, I don't know, trying to drink while taking photos? I don't know. Process, defe not. No. So I have a Canon I got, I'm obsessed with, but I got it. I guess it's been two years now. It's kind of like an extension of my body, like it's always with me now that that weird growth growing out, which is funny. When we got it, like so many were like, Oh, you have a camera, like you're really never going to actually use it, like I use it all the time.

Any who, I think I read a blog, like I do. I do get on Youtube a lot. There's so much out there, but I read a blog where some girl is just like you just need to get out there and like just play with it, like lighting and scenarios and things, and there's definitely times where I come back and I'm like, Oh, that is ugly and I will never post that that's terrible pictures. But yeah, I think it's just playing with it and I like to get it like beyond the manual settings. Like when I first started, I just always used auto because I was like I'm not comfortable with aperture and like one of these things mean, and now I'm like Oh, it's really exciting. Like the more you play with it you're like okay, like I I'm not like a professional photographer, but I do enjoy photography lovely. I had to photograph a concert recently and that was a new experience. Shout out to magic giant in America. That would be something I would not be familiar I was not comfortable with it at all. I was going. So sometimes I'll get invited to concerts for my old hot cup of Joey blog, which I still update occasionally, but not. I don't know about this one first of all. So we need to talk about that's pretty it's pretty delightful. And the I'll get invites to show sometimes and I usually go from like a covering it perspective, but sometimes that entitles entails photography as well. You usually that's just like maybe recording a video. Are Getting some photos on my phone because it's just kind of like a general emission ticket go, you know, take some photos. This one. They were like hey, we can give you a photo pass to if you want to get into the pit and take some photos, and I was like yeah, let's do that. And for me playing in a pop punk rock band, the pit is kind of like a circle pit where people are running around and kind of like slamming up against each other sometimes and I'm like that sounds like it's going to be terrible to take photos in. But this one it was just a nice little like section off area where we're right by the stage, and so I thought that was a lot kinder. There was like an orchestra pit. Yeah, yeah, like we were were occasionally bumping into each other, the media folk, but it was, you know, it was a gentle like Oh, I'm so sorry, I'm looked the photos turn out well, I actually haven't really looked at them on computer yet. This was very recently, I just couple days ago, so I have to take take a look on a larger screen. I was looking on my camera and some I mean you probably experience this to really like that's real good and then you get it up on a big screen, you're like, oh, actually, this entire thing is out of focus. Yeah, I will say magic giant. As a band, y'all move around a lot, like maybe maybe too much to get good photos, which I mean I'm a big fan of moving around our show, so I get it. Yeah, but they have a violinist and he was like hopping and like bopping into the crowd. There's one part where I just had to use my phone because they came into the crowd to do like a little acoustic song and everyone just started pulling out their lights and I like couldn't get my I doslar to like function properly to like get something good, and I'm like we just try to night mode and see how that works. In it like worked. Really wanted a little...

...video of it. There you go. May I guess sometimes I haven't. I had epic fail. We did. We had Max's first birthday party in Ohio and I was like I'm gonna Bring my camera. Like we made a photo like prop area so we could have like a photo booths we could get pictures of family that we don't see all the time and totally failed to adjust settings and it was we had it. We actually had his party at my husband's GRANDPA's retirement community, but it was like in this basement with this like weird yelling, weird lights. Every picture is like yellow, like like terrible, like not even able to edit to it's so bad. I'm like I have nothing even good to document, like the coloring is so bad. It's a total fail. That's very disastrous. But since we like to be positive here, so what's your top tip? Then? For a person, it's maybe, just, maybe, it's just gotten a camera, maybe they don't, maybe they're just using their phone and it's I mean there's a noticeable difference between camera and phone quality, I would say, in most cases, even though some of these phones trying to trying to, yeah, make the argument. I don't know about all that, but yeah, what's her what's your top tip? Oh, Gosh, lighting, it's all like for me, it's like, and at this point, it gets dark at like what six o'clock now? So if I am invited to an event like and it starts at thirty, like I'm there at five dirty. I want the food like as soon as possible, because there's only like a short window, because it means just a huge difference in your picture. Quality. Mean like right at the height of sunlight. It's harsh because then you get these weird shadows. So like a like a cloudy day is like my favorite tissue if that happens. But yeah, you can't always control it. Yeah, and we at a recent event. You were not at this one. Ha once I feel like I know what you're talking it was. I can give it a shout out. I Guess East Auston Hotel. They were like like raise the lights for us. Yeah, and at one point they dimmed it and everyone turned like what did you doing? Like put them back on there, like Oh, okay, and then everyone else that was there that was not for this event. Yeah, it was kind of surprised by like how bright it was. I was actually sad. I was very sad to miss that one phenomenal. Would highly recommend those rubins. I'm looking at the audience. It's a in your wall. Yeah, so good. No mushroom. They're like their Bagel with locks or whatever it is. I really need to go get. Yeah, and they're having a new menu. Drop it. It just dropped where Mike Drop? Yes, but please don't drop the MIC's very expensive. It's like when I another wild tangent. But when I used to host Karaoke and people think they're great rock stars by dropping the microphones, and I was like, you know, the fastest way to get kicked out of the bars you drop this micro do you still karaoke? I dabble. Yeah, I don't. I don't host anymore. That was just a I'm not. I'm too old for it now because you got to stay up real late. Yeah, I was hosting and working. So going out on like a Tuesday? Yeah, so like one am? No, no, no, no, no, young joey could pull it off. Current Joey, who know?...

You can't. I just three days off after staying up till one am. That same. Yeah. Do you Karaoke? No, I think I have. Once we were at we had a sales meeting in New Orleans and we were out, I mean I was this was like my early career, so I was probably twenty four or something, very young, and we were out super late and I karaoked with a friend and that's the last time. Do you remember what the song was? If I had to guess, it would have been a salm pepper song. Were you salts or I was? And you tell them apart I was very salt and peppered at the time. One you had a great time. So, yeah, I've been karaoking in New Orleans once. It was for a Bachelor Party. I have a real, like halfbacked goal to visit all fifty stay are like. I mean I want to visit off ACA state's but I'd also like to Karryoke and off it. Don't live it up. I'm at, I believe, eight on last counts. Of still quite a whist. But Louisiana is one of them. We went on a Bachelor Party and I have never seen this before, but they would do a song like you'd Karaoke a song, and then in between they'd play another full song and would the host would either be like a hype man, like yeah, all having a good time for the whole song, though, or he'd like there was one where they did like Green Day and they just gave an inflatable guitars to two people and they had to do like a guitar, an Air Guitar battle off. How did that work out? People like annoyed to wait so a long. I I was annoyed. Yeah, wait so long, for sure, but I think a lot of people, I mean this was also like one or two am at this point, like real late in the evening, and I think people were probably okay with that point of Gotchas Fun. Yeah, it's a tough life out there, truly, as it truly is the Karaoke world. Oh my goodness, what a what a time, what a time. Well, I can also imagine like old person Joey, being like Karaoke like this, like you know, and your slacks like pulled up rock I like honest stage Karaokeing. Got My suspense. Your Kiddos, I'm about to drop some being. Well, when I lived in La there was a place that I'd go to. Shout out to Bruco, rest in peace, doesn't exist anymore where. I knew the host and I became friends with him because I was meeting someone there who's like an hour and a half late one time, and so I was just like sitting in the back and he's like hey, there's a chair back here if you want to like hang out, like after I'd done my first song, and I was like Nice, and so we just like got to talk and had a lot of similar interest in everything, and so he'd always like want to do like fun mix ups of Karaoke and stuff. So he's like Hey, pick a number, and I'd pick like eighty seven eight, open the book up to page eighty seven and just like pick an artist from there. There's like all right, go up and sing that song. And so there was one where it was like it was all like Brooks and done the boot scooloog. Yeah, but and I was just like well, I guess that's the Song I have to do because that's the only one I know by then, and not very well. So sometimes it ended up in disaster. Other Times another friend and I and him would sing all songs from the same artists,...

...which always confused people if they were walking it. Yeah, and I'll love it because they're like wait, do we all have to sing up here to night, or can we like can we mix it out? That's actually genius idea. That's fun. Yeah, yeah, Kinta love that. Yeah, throwing some challenges. It's exceptionally good for people that have only carry Akeud one. I. So, yeah, I would just follow suit. Yes, and well, I have terrific Karaoke News and life. You have exciting news as well. What a Segue, right. Yeah, I do have big news. I haven't I've been wanting to post it on my instagram, but hopefully soon. So I just started with do five one too family as their sales and social media manager, which as yeah, thank you, you know, as another one of those like I feel like we knew when Max turned a year old that I wanted to get back into the work and not just on feed this house, but like get back in the workforce and some capacity. But wanted it, definitely wanted it to be social media related, and this kind of like just came about, edges the perfect time and when we had moved here, to do five one too family was what I went to. Like for people that aren't familiar with do five one two or do five one two family. For me, on the family side, there's the calendar that shows like every day, like this is what you can do with your kids, and it'll show like, you know, there's a brief section about what the event is and then there's also a link to get more information and I'll let you know like if it cost anything or whatever, kind of like what to expect. And so every night, like before my day with Olivia to this story time or this music class or whatever, and it was so helpful and it's how I met so many mom friends to like it's really hard and really isolating when you move from to a new city and then you're just like at home all the time during nap times and whatever, and then, like my husband was so busy working, like it was like the way that I kind of like got out and felt brave enough to like explore a new city with a child. So when I met who I'm working with in real life at an event, I rl at a like an event, I was like, oh my gosh, you like when she told me what she did, I was like, I feel like I'm amongst a celebrity. Like I was like you have no idea, what do five one, two family has meant for my life, and she was like really, thank you, like that makes me feel so happy, but I mean honestly, and so I beyond excited to be it's like the perfect place for me, I feel like. So, has it been an adjustment getting back into kind of working a flow, or is it it's something you prepare for, so you're kind of like it's fine. I think it's a mix. So on one side, a lot of it, you know, with doing feed this house, like I know a lot of the people and and the connections and the kind of like workabouts, with social media and all that. But on the other hand, like balancing being a mom and like responding to emails, where I need to focus where Max like started walking basically the week that I started, which...

...was terrible. So my whole job right now is to keep him alive, because every time I look around, like he's trying to stick his head in a toilet or something. We all so trying to like focus on that. And then, basically, because I most of time work from home, the second he goes down for a nap, I need to be like on my computer and like nothing else gets my attention. But I'm so type A that I'm like the laundry needs to be done, Olivia's launch needs to be packed for the night, you know, like all the things, like there's so much that goes into like being a mom and like the like our house being clean and things being done, and so that's something that I just need to have blinders on and and I have been able to do that and thankfully, like my husband is the most supportive helpful person. I couldn't have done it without him. But yeah, we're definitely going to be adjusting to that. But I'm very happy to be with you if I want to. I'm very excited about the journey with social media involved in the role. Do you have to get onto all these new platforms? Are you on tick Tock, which is probably old at this point, but ticked, yeah, takes so what nineteen? No, we're not on tick tock with twitter, facebook and Instagram, and I honestly like that demographic is a lot of facebook. So it's a lot of book, a lot of book and twitter. But twitter, to me is still one of those animals that I'm like, I definitely understand it, but to me it's like not as enjoyable as a platform. I don't do feel that way about twitter. I think it depends on, like what you're going for. What. Yeah, for for certain brands. Yes, I like it a lot. As a writer, like for freelancing. I like it a lot because the writing community on there is pretty solid and they'll you know, whether it's like book or podcast recommendations or like Hey, I'm, you know, terrible at writing. Dialog any good resources or anything like that or sometimes it's just like a fun like yeah, Hey, if you were too super animals or an aunt too animals combined to a super animal, what, too, would you be in? Why? I think, I know I'm saying like from a personal like not feed this house and not do if I want to like my personally cruising. I don't like get on there being like, you know, as far as you this house, like I'm like I want to see like what restaurants are dropping and that kind of stuff, like the newest, but I wouldn't like like seek that out on my own. I don't think. Sure, yeah, I I mean I think I'm probably not the right person just because, like my job requires well, okay, and for all these so I'm kind of making it like. I mean, I don't really scroll timelines that much just because there's like so much nonsense thrown in there. But I'll see like what's trending. Yeah, obviously like posting on we have a clients, but yeah, when I'm on my own, I feel like I'm not usually not looking too much out there. Maybe I'll hop into it, like I mean there's always some stupid Hashtag like yeah, ruin a movie, changing a word or something like that, and like those are fun to dive into. It's not. Yeah, it's not a great y spirit time. Yeah, now I think I just like,...

I like pictures and instagrams where where's like on my own? Yeah, it's more visually yeah, pleasing. Yeah, I'm an IGEAR twitter. Are you a tick Tocker? Oh, I used fine a little bit. Did you was on there? I like. I mean I'm a broadcast journalism. Yeah, graduate, shout out to the you even that you're wearing your Osu shirt, you say. Am It's so comfortable too. It looks comfortable. The story actually behind there's there's a story behind this shirt and it is I hadn't bought like normally, if I dress for Ohio state, I'll wear just like scarlet and gray colors. I don't normally wear like actual team apparel. Okay, but this year, I don't even want to talk about what happened with the game, but this year when we were we were back in Ohio for that game and I was like, I don't really even have any like official like clothes. I haven't pot anything, and I had just got Scott this actual same shirt for Christmas and he kind of screwed the pooch when I comes to Christmas this year. My husband, like I said, he's a wonderful person, but this year was just not his year, and so I had a little bit of beef already about what had been purchased and under the tree. And so, anyway, fast forward a couple weeks later, we get this package in the mail which is from homage, which is like our yeah, love them, they're great, or homage, however you want to say it. Like it's homemage, no, but I like it. So I'm like it was addressed to me. I'm like, Oh, must be my dad, like he must have gotten me something. I opened it was the same shirt that got caught and I'm like, oh no, was I drinking too much wine one night and like duplicated my order? Or totally possible, right. So I'm like in my email, like before I even like said anything to Scott. I'm like in my email and like Oh, I don't see a second order, and I'm like checking quantity on the original order and it said one. I'm like okay, and it was a different size than his, obviously. But so I came home like did you happen to get me this and he's like, Oh yeah, I felt so bad about which, like, like I said, my husband's wonderful, never buys me clothes or like things like that. Like it was just so shocking that I like assumed it was my dad before it was him. I assumed it was me drunk or my dad. Look, it says something about our purchase histories. That's wonderful. But Anyway, now I'm in it and I love it. It's from March madness this year. Hast it's making it. I haven't I don't. You know, I don't follow basketball, but I think what I last understood as they were doing well and then they took a dive. Yeah, it's like their emmo lately. Oh, moving on, moving, yeah, moving, moving on. Say. I mean the last time Miami really had a lot of glory in college football was almost the s which I think segues nicely in our top three. Oh Yeah, was this was your idea, so I expect you to really bring it here. The top S hip hop songs. Okay, my top three s hip hop. I need...

...deep dives into why each of these make your top. Oh Wow, okay, well, Black Street, no diggity, very nice. Does that need explanation. It's like do you remember? Well, I you're younger than me, but like at dances like that was like the jam. Yeah, when that came on it was just like Oh man, like everyone was on the floor of that one. And then Fuji's, ready or not, which always reminds me of we always went to see her point growing up. And so the roller coasters, I remember like going up on the raptor and going up that hill like my friend and I like kicking our legs because that's where your legs are free on the ride. We were like Foolalala, and I'm terrible singer. That sounded melodic, first of all, angelic, I dare say. I have a quick Fuji's Karaoke and from when I was hosting Oh yeah. So I generally try to be like an inclusive karaoke host. I'm like Hey, you know, I want like this is your time to shine, like get on up here, go do it. What I don't like is when people are dicks to me or dicks to other people. There was a guy that brought a harmonica to play piano man. I was like, first of all, piano man, already hate that song, so you do. Yes, you're already on thin eyes. Just done to my but he was like coming up on the stage while other people were singing to like play Harmonica, like practice harmonica for his song, and I was like look, man, like let them sing. You want to practice harmonica, you can go outside. That's fine, but like what are you doing? Get off the stage. But anyway, so there I digress. So very crowded night one time and this girl comes up. She's like already pretty drunk, still kind of early in the night. It was like ten PM maybe. She's like HMM, comes out, she's I want to sing right now, and I'm like well, there's a list. You can sign up and you know, we'll get you up there. And so she's like I don't, I don't sign up on lists and like storms off and then her friend comes over and she's like hey, you know, sorry for my friend, like she's going through like a rough time or so. I don't even know if she said that, but she was like is there any way we could like bump her up the list? And I say I mean money always helps. So if you want to like slide some slide some cash over. So she's like how does twenty son. I'm like yeah, it sounds great and I'm like, I'm not gonna put her up next because, like, I don't want to be super suspicious. I'm like, but I'll get her out like pretty soon, like in the next four or five songs, and so I get her up. She comes up. I'm like what do you want to sing? She's like I want to sing Fuji's. Oh my goodness, what's the other? Ready or not? No, the other? Oh, killing me, sof yeah, she's like I want to sing killing me softly by the Fuji's, and I said, Oh, you know, like good choice, but someone just saying that maybe like forty five minutes, an hour ago, and there's a lot of the same people here, so if you want to pick another one. She's like no, I'll do it better, and I was all right, let her go on. She sings it. It's fine. Did you have the crowd vote? I would have been like hey, great, what everyone think about that? rendlish. I will say this place did not have the best sound system. Sometimes, when it was real packed, like speaking, didn't go over very well. That Chah, I so, but that would have been a great idea. Should have done it it's like hey, people who were here for both of us, what she would vote...

...on the a trend. She comes up to me after she's like how was that and I was like I was about the same as the other and she she gets off stage and then immediately tries to like come back to like get back on. I was like hey, you know, there's another like there's a lot of people on this list, like I gotta get some other people up here. And then she tries to unplug the whole system, which, like this was close to ten years ago, so it took a long time to get the system rebooted. And then I was like, oh no, like you're trying to ruin the whole night for everyone, and the bouncer like happen to be right there and he looks he's like you need me to handle her, and I was like yes, please, just like takes her outside. That is a good foodie story. Police shoved her into a cab and send her home. But who knows, maybe just said yeah, I don't know, she sounds like she was having quite a night. Yeah, maybe she just went off to another karaoke bar. That's that's hope. So and your third song, all right. And so my third one would be ghetto cowboy Bune. That's bone thugs in harmony. You're the second person in like a week and a half to mention ghetto cowy Um. Have you listened to it recently? Like it's reasonably payless. It's timeless. But I think her name. WAS IT Thug Queen? It sounds right. Yeah, or we just like saying that? I don't know. Okay, we can check the TAP. So, like one of my girlfriends, I would like pretend to be her and like we were just like you know, we'd be driving and we just like you know this one. You're like sixteen and the like. There's that like perfect temperature outside when you have like the windows down and like you're leaving high school and you just think you're really I think that like these songs kind of take me back to those. So that's part of it. But we would like we thought we were like so, I mean, mind you, I'm from a very small town in Ohio, like we had a village square, like with a post office on one corner up the police station on one quarter, a library on the other corner. Like I'm from a very, very small town, and so like we thought we were like so cool and like work hardcore, like listening to these songs. I look I good. I was like really, I was flat my younger self, but I still do love that song. And these were all on my mix. For one, Max was born is we actually had to like when they when we walked into the R for the c section, I was like, just so you know, I have explicit lyrics that I want to be played. Is that okay? And they were like it's totally fine, totally fine. And actually Max was born to Eminem. What is the song? I'm forgetting the song. Anyway, he was born on an Eminem song that was extra, hopefully classic. I'm a M Oh, yeah, class no, no, no, one of the ones where you're like never give up or whatever. I don't know. Hopefully not one about like killing his wife or mom. Seems like planning bath suits. No, Oh, what's the what? Okay, the way I am and just start rattling off classic I'm and I'm stand. I mean that kind of no. No, no, no, that would be. What's the One? Like? I don't know, is a deep, deep track, deep cuts? So much pressure to find this. No, I'm going to find this cause we're gonna lie find out.

Yeah, I like it. No, because it's it's like, I think, one of the best songs for when you're like just need to stick through it, you know, kind of like you're having a tough moment. Let's see till I collapse. Oh, yeah, it's yes, yeah, he was burned to that, which is like a very explain that's pretty good. Yeah, like it's not like he was born to this like peaceful, like I'm sure there are several people that are like listening to like Beethoven when their children are boring. Yeah, and then my child child comes out playing a piano. So sorry to all of his feet future teachers, that's my fault. It's a good song about perseverance, that it is. It's like one always on my race track for when I'm doing running races to this. Very Nice, very nice. So you know well, Ashley, this is flown by you did pretty well. That's a plus. Thank you.
