RTR Ep 17


[00:00:00] Trey: Hi.

[00:00:31] Chelsey: Ah, hi. If you are watching the Patreon, you really got quite a dance show, I don't think I've ever done such a dance number in my life!

[00:00:38] Trey: Really broke a sweat there. Hi everyone.

[00:00:40] Chelsey: Seriously!

[00:00:41] Trey: Welcome to Review That Review, the preeminent podcast dedicated to reviewing..

[00:00:47] Chelsey: Reviews! Yay. We're just like Siskel and Ebert only instead of reviewing cinematic masterpieces, we rate and review those hilarious scathing and sometimes suspicious online reviews.

[00:01:01] Trey: That's Chelsey, Donn,

[00:01:03] Chelsey: and that's Trey Gerrald

[00:01:05] Trey: and together y'all, you know who we are, where those cool cats,

[00:01:10] Chelsey: we're

[00:01:11] Voiceover: The Review Queens.

[00:01:15] Trey: How's your crown today, Tracy?

[00:01:17] Chelsey: Digital and lovely and very light, Trey. Not Trey. Che! Thanks for asking. It's not going to go anywhere. How's your, how's your week been, Trey?

[00:01:26] Trey: I've had a good week, you know, since I am the editor of the podcast, I have realized that my MacBook Pro I have, like, I didn't buy like the bottom tier I bought like the one terabyte. So it was more expensive.

[00:01:41] Chelsey: Yeah.

[00:01:42] Trey: It's just the editing process is multi-layered and I'm like editing different. This is boring, but my computer, the memory has just completely depleted. And I even have a four terabyte external that I am like slowly processing everything over into that, so that I'll have working memory, but so I was like crazed about my digital space of my computer. And so I was looking and it was like 700 gigabytes of other. quote-unquote Other that you can't click on and find out what it is.

[00:02:14] Chelsey: You mean, like when you're, when you're looking at the Mac and you like pull it up and it's like purple and like, yeah. Yeah.

[00:02:20] Trey: So then that..

[00:02:20] Chelsey: So your other portion..

[00:02:22] Trey: What is the other?

[00:02:23] Chelsey: Are you asking me?

[00:02:24] Trey: Yeah. Do you know?

[00:02:26] Chelsey: I always just assumed it was everything that didn't fit into the other categories.

[00:02:30] Trey: Right. But you can't click on it and find it. You can like click on messages, which I had 50, I think it was 54 gigabytes of my 256 gigabyte, iPhone.

[00:02:44] Chelsey: I don't know percentages, but that seems high.

[00:02:46] Trey: But I literally had text messages from 2014 stored on my iPhone, which then gets synced to my computer. So I got crazy and I literally deleted. Every text message except for, with my husband in life deleted it, it is gone. Oh, it felt so delicious. I've had no regrets. It's wonderful. And I got a text from Chelsey that said, 'did you literally delete our history about forming this podcast?' And I said, 'I did. And you know, what's great about that is you still have it.'

[00:03:21] Chelsey: So, I mean, I'm the keeper of all of the secrets. But also, yeah, I mean, I'm going to be honest. I saw the post and I thought, I understand why David, you know, is above me, but. I feel like I'm like the work wife. I mean, I'm at least the work girlfriend. I was, I was like, maybe he didn't want to make it public because like, that would diminish your relationship with David if you were like 'and Chelsey.'

[00:03:49] Trey: Oh you thought that when you texted me, I'd be like, 'PS, I didn't really do you.'

[00:03:52] Chelsey: Yeah. I thought, yeah, I thought when I texted to you are going to be like, 'obviously I kept our history!' But you didn't.

[00:03:59] Trey: No.

[00:03:59] Chelsey: But what was interesting is when we were texting, I was like, let me go back and see how far back our communication goes, because I, I obviously have a clutter problem as well, and I haven't deleted anything since God knows when. So like I'm looking back, back, back, back back and I found the first, like photograph I had ever texted you. And this was how many years ago was this? What year do you think it was like 2015?

[00:04:27] Trey: I think it was 17. I think we met in 17. Yeah.

[00:04:31] Chelsey: So the first photograph I ever sent you in 2017 was a screenshot of a Yelp review for a psychic!

[00:04:39] Trey: Which is crazy!

[00:04:41] Chelsey: Which is so crazy on so many levels.

[00:04:44] Trey: And then you looked at the next, like three and they were also reviews.

[00:04:47] Chelsey: Yes. Like the first five photo text messages between us were screenshots of Yelp reviews about psychics, which is like so weird Trey, on so many levels. Because like we've been friends for a long time, but there were years where it was just like, happy Thanksgiving, happy Thanksgiving, happy birthday. Like, not because we don't love each other, but just, we live in different cities and like, this is what life happens. And like, we just went on like two different paths, checking in with each other periodically and then came together for this venture.

[00:05:22] Trey: Mmm-hmm.

[00:05:23] Chelsey: That was predicted by an online psychic on Yelp!

[00:05:27] Trey: It is crazy because that year that I was in LA was the first time I connected Yelp with my email account. Cause I remember I went tanning, which if you remember in a previous Royal Highness Aloe Vera I can't tan. But I got a membership at a tanning salon in West Hollywood, got so outrageously burned, but I joined Yelp because they said if I left a positive review, I would get like 15% off.

[00:05:53] Chelsey: Yeah.

[00:05:53] Trey: So like my whole world of reviews began right at that time.

[00:05:57] Chelsey: Right when we met.

[00:05:59] Trey: Literally.

[00:05:59] Chelsey: You know, when things like that happen, you can't help, but laugh and think that there's someone else. There's something else. There's another force out there that knows things are going to unfold in a certain way and everything sort of clicks, but it's so random at the time, you know?.

[00:06:16] Trey: Totally. We like look back and piece that together, which is nice. And that psychic story. I'll save it for another time on the podcast.

[00:06:23] Chelsey: Yes. Or maybe like a Patreon moment.

[00:06:25] Trey: Maybe, but yeah. So I feel freer. I feel lighter. I feel like my computer is running so much faster, so it's great. I can fill it with more podcast episodes. Chelsey, how was your week?

[00:06:35] Chelsey: Oh my God. First of all, Trey's amazing. He edits, everything does so much work. I'm the friggin luck... Yeah. I'm the friggin luckiest. I just am. Okay. I'm sorry. You're going to have to edit that. My week's been good. I did it. I, I grabbed the old water bottle out from the bottom of the cabinet, cleaned her off and I've been trying to carry her around with me.

[00:07:01] Trey: And?

[00:07:02] Chelsey: It's been going well. Uh, definitely been getting a lot more water since I've been holding her and keeping her around. I really do feel better when I'm hydrated. Who knew?

[00:07:12] Trey: I know. It really is crazy. I love that this is like our recurring theme is Chelsey's hydration, we should have a sound effect. Like we can check in with Chelsey's Hydration!

[00:07:23] Chelsey: You should! Cause when you put the post on Instagram about like being hydrated. I, I was severely dehydrated at the time that I read it. And then I was like, it was actually one of the reasons why I pulled her out of the old...

[00:07:35] Trey: I didn't even think about that!

[00:07:36] Chelsey: Cabinet! Actually, that's true. That's why I ended up that was the, I forgot. That was the impetus for getting her because I saw the post that you put on Instagram. And then I was like, I gotta do something about this.

[00:07:46] Trey: That is hilarious to me. Anyway. All right, so you want to get into some, um, kvetching?

[00:07:52] Chelsey: I mean, Yeah, let's do it.

[00:07:54] Trey: All right. Chelsey, what do you want to
