WHAT ABOUT FARMS? WOULD YOU EVER DO A SHOW ABOUT A FARM?

JOE Yeah, whatever. If there's a farm in Unity — and there probably is — yeah. I mean, we don't wanna have any kind of message.

ALEX We don't want it to be editorial.

JOE We wanna just be there getting drunk with the farmers.

ALEX I went up to Gardiner recently and they told me there's an amazing collective farm dinner series over the summer, and it's a big fucking party. I think that would be the context in which we would go to a farm.

JOEL When we went to Fort Kent there wasn't anything in the ploy factory there and (I wonder) how interesting is that footage to the viewer?

JOE Probably about as interesting as it was to me.

JOEL And that's was sort of the last bastions of us sticking to this food thing where we're like (trying to) get this footage of this place.

ALEX (The ploy factory is) such an important piece of the essence of the area materially, (but) is it an important piece that conveys experientially?

KURT But you also don't know until you go and shoot it. You might get something that's totally awesome and totally perfect for the show. I've done enough of these shows where it looks like the most boring area and it's actually one of the most exciting parts of the show. Who knows!

WHAT'S ONE THING YOU GUYS WILL NOT EAT?

JOE Peas. I hate peas.

ALEX I'll eat anything, really.

JOEL Probably vagina, but with a gun to the head . . .

JOE And natto beans. I hate natto beans.

KURT The majority of seafood.

JOEL. . . no, really, andouillette.

ALEX To me, (eating) is still really exciting. I grew up in such a shitty-palated household.

AMERICAN FOOD?

ALEX Not even. I grew up with Navy food.

JOE Is that like astronaut ice cream?

ALEX No, it's literally shit-on-a-shingle every day. Astronaut ice cream! Didn't the Nazis make those?

HOW FAR DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THE SHOW?

JOE We want to end up on a national level.

ALEX I just want to make a lot of money.

JOE We want to make a lot of money so I can live this lifestyle without any effort.

ALEX I want to see Joe be able to write and do larger things. I want to see Joel be able to make money. I want to see Kurt be able to make a living. And I want Kurt and myself, from an artistic standpoint, to be able to make any documentary or show that we want.

JOEL I'd probably bow out at a certain point.

JOE Once Joel can start living like Captain Ron, he's all set.

ALEX That's everyone's favorite Kurt Russell movie!

JOEL I love that movie!
