[00:00:30] CHELSEY DONN: Hello.
[00:00:31] TREY GERRALD: Hello. Welcome to Review That Review the podcast dedicated to reviewing
[00:00:37] CHELSEY DONN: Reviews! 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,
[00:00:49] TREY GERRALD: That's
[00:00:49] TREY GERRALD: Chelsey
[00:00:50] TREY GERRALD: Donn.
[00:00:50] CHELSEY DONN: And that's Trey Gerrald or so I thought, but blonde and in a wig and we'll discuss that soon.
[00:00:56] CHELSEY DONN: I'm
[00:00:57] CHELSEY DONN: sure.
[00:00:57] TREY GERRALD: Oh We will, and together Wig or not we are,

[00:01:25] CHELSEY DONN: So I'm wondering like, so Trey is wearing a blonde wig. It's like, it's kind of giving me like Garth vibes a little bit. But it's also a lovely luscious blonde wig. And then we have these very large gold wire framed glasses.
[00:01:45] TREY GERRALD: Yes, these
[00:01:45] TREY GERRALD: are well, okay. I'm wearing this wig in honor of the fact that Scream 2022 came out last week. Oh. And we're recording this a little early, so, um, I haven't seen it, but in reality in real time when you're hearing this, I will have seen it!
[00:02:03] TREY GERRALD: and so this was thoughts. We'll have thoughts, but this was the wig that I made for my women of scream series when I did all the women in drag, this was my Tatum wig, and I had a little cat door attached.
[00:02:16] CHELSEY DONN: Did you just say made, you made the wig?
[00:02:19] TREY GERRALD: Well, I didn't sew the wig, but I straightened it out, like with steam, a steamer. And I had to like pluck all of the strands of hair out at the center to make the center part. Cause she has a very specific center part, but I don't shave everyday. So now I, it looks like Garth because I have facial hair and it kind of looks. You know, it's, you're not like a cute female presenting person, then it looks like you're a hippy guy in a production of Hair or something anyway. So I'm very excited for Scream!
[00:02:49] CHELSEY DONN: It's very Hair vibes. Oh my God. I'm so excited for you. I know how much you love that. So that's great.
[00:02:54] TREY GERRALD: Um, so tell me about your week. What's going on.
[00:02:58] Lodge A Complaint
[00:02:58] CHELSEY DONN: Oh my God. You guys. Okay, so let's talk about this. I love dogs. I love. Puppy. Like I can't imagine my life without an animal, but that being said, I just want to take a moment to kvetch for a second about puppies. Like, it's just a lot of work. We go through a lot of phases. She's always barking all the time. I don't know what to do. And always at the most inopportune times, like during a very important zoom or recording, can't get her to stop. So it's probably my fault. I should bring her to get trained, but she, you guys want to see like, Patreon, I guess, Goldie officially destroyed her first toy: the chicken. Um, it's been decapitated. Isn't that great. I've never had a dog that like decapitated toys like this, especially not like a five pound dog that decapitated toys, but here we go. RIP rubber chicken.
[00:03:52] TREY GERRALD: Wow. Good job. Goldie
[00:03:56] CHELSEY DONN: really got her aggression out. So I don't know guys, anyone have any tips? Call, call the voicemail, leave a message. Tell me how to stop a puppy. From boredom barking. Cause I work from home and so she's around, you know, while I'm working and I, we gotta stop. We gotta, I can't, I know that was a complaint and I just logged right in trey, but
[00:04:17] VOICEOVER: Lodge A Complaint!
[00:04:19] CHELSEY DONN: add that to the ledger, please.
[00:04:20] TREY GERRALD: I'm glad that you did that because it's very reminiscent of couple of weeks ago when my, or maybe last week when My Royal Highness turned into my complaint, because you did once induct all the dogs for your Royal Highness.
[00:04:37] CHELSEY DONN: It's true. I was going to say, I know I'm a hipocrite I love the dogs, but the puppy barking, which is more than I can handle,
[00:04:44] TREY GERRALD: you know, I think that everything in life has a ying and a yang, I think.
[00:04:48] CHELSEY DONN: True.
[00:04:48] TREY GERRALD: It's understandable.
[00:04:49] CHELSEY DONN: Yeah. That's a great point. Do you have anything you'd like to talk about something you'd like to get off your chest?
[00:04:54] TREY GERRALD: Okay. So. this is a, this can be a 'more you know' moment. It really bothers me when people refer to Broadway musical cast recordings as soundtracks,
[00:05:08] CHELSEY DONN: ...Interesting. Okay.
[00:05:08] TREY GERRALD: It makes me furious. Let me explain: a soundtrack is a released compilation of musical scoring from a film. Sure that's called a sound track. Okay. A cast recording is a complete composition with lyrics for a Broadway musical. That's not a soundtrack. A soundtrack is for feature films. A Cast Recording is for an art form called a musical and it's, I just hate, I th the instant someone refers to a Broadway cast recording as a soundtrack. I go into a, I go into a conversation inside of my head.
[00:05:56] CHELSEY DONN: You turn into Carrie, the musical.
[00:05:58] TREY GERRALD: It hap yes, it happens a lot when people want to seem intelligent or something like on like talk shows and stuff, or like, you know, like someone will be like in a Lin Manuel Miranda movie. And they're like talking about, no, I love musicals. I have like so many soundtracks. It's like, you just exposed yourself. You liar. Anyway, I think there, you know, we're fortunate that we can speak language so we should learn language appropriately and, and use it correctly. Thank you.
[00:06:33] CHELSEY DONN: Cast recording. I'm sure I've made that mistake. And--
[00:06:37] TREY GERRALD: You went to Tisch!
[00:06:39] CHELSEY DONN: I understand this. I, I still think I might've said that. I don't know cast recording. I mean, --
[00:06:46] TREY GERRALD: Do it again, Chelsey, and I'm going to cancel you.
[00:06:51] CHELSEY DONN: It's a cast recording. I love a good cast recording. Do you remember the first cast recording you ever owned as a kid?
[00:06:57] TREY GERRALD: Whoa, what a very good question. I would imagine that the very first cast recording I owned was. Les Miz on cassette. It was a tape, but that was my sisters for sure. But I would listen to it in the car. I specifically remember, you know, I went to a boarding school and so it was like an, an hour and a half away. And so when my dad would drive me, I have a very vivid memory of when I purchased the hairspray cast recording and the wicked cast recording. And my poor dad would just drive me the 90 minutes and we would listen to wicked and hairspray. So gay, what about you? Do you have a memory ?
[00:07:38] CHELSEY DONN: I do. I, I remember getting the cast recording. I want to say for the, the grease production that Rosie O'Donald was in, maybe I just love to belt out There Are Worst Things I Can Do. What can I have say... in my living room? And I suppose my family was around, but they were kind enough to ignore me, I guess. Love a good cast recording.
[00:08:04] TREY GERRALD: Oh, that's fun. Thank you for humoring. Me, everyone. And you know, if you've made the mistake, it's okay. You can forgive yourself. Just learn from your mistakes.
[00:08:12] CHELSEY DONN: You know what? There's so many teachable moments. That happen to us every day. So there might as well be another one, you know, and with all this like joy education, balancing of good and bad ying and yang, everything that we've been discussing up until now, do you think it it's like time for us to jump into some online reviews? Trey?
[00:08:33] TREY GERRALD: I think it's tiiime! As you all know. We are your trusty Review! Queens. Each week, we bring in a review from the internet that we feel needs to be inspected.
[00:08:44] CHELSEY DONN: We read you the review! break it down and rate the impact of the review on a scale from one to five crowns, it's a very Regal process that we call
[00:08:53] VOICEOVER: Assess That Kvetch.
