#1036 – Logan Ewing | Mayhem Athlete | Roman’s Training Partner

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

On one second. Hold on. Yeah. Oh, I lost your audio. Yeah, that’s money, Logan. Awesome.

Logan Ewing (00:08):


Sevan Matossian (00:08):

You get in a fight.

Logan Ewing (00:10):

A fight.

Sevan Matossian (00:14):

You got a little dig. Oh

Logan Ewing (00:16):

Yeah. That was a little dumbbell and it’s kind of turned into a bit of a zit.

Sevan Matossian (00:21):

Oh, dumbbell. The Zi. Wow. Okay. Wait, hold on. You know what else I’m going to do? I’m going to stick your Instagram under there. Oh shit. I fucked that up. You got two underscores

Logan Ewing (00:42):

At the beginning and at the end. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (00:44):

Oh, God. Triggered. I’m triggered. So triggered by an underscore, underscored in numbers. I don’t know, which I dislike more. But you have symmetry though. You have symmetry, you have. I like symmetry.

Logan Ewing (00:57):

It took me a long time to be able to get a handle that didn’t have a number in it, so I took the first one that I could get.

Sevan Matossian (01:04):

Did you have any underscore issues? Like me, like I got underscore issues. I’m like, I don’t want to see an underscore.

Logan Ewing (01:11):

I’d rather see an underscore than a number.

Sevan Matossian (01:13):

Yeah, right. Okay. You didn’t play football or anything? The people who football are like, you don’t understand numbers. The number’s important.

Logan Ewing (01:19):

I did play football. I played football and baseball, and my number was always eight, but in football I had 39, and so I had to use both of them in my Instagram handle before. Apparently there’s a lot of Logan Ewings out there. I could never find a good username until about maybe a year and a half ago.

Sevan Matossian (01:41):

What is Ewing? What’s the origin of Ewing? I’m trying to think. I think there was this famous show when I was a little kid called Dallas.

Logan Ewing (01:57):

Yeah, I didn’t even know about that until someone pulled me. You didn’t about that.

Sevan Matossian (02:02):

It’s an old ass show when there were only three stations. Literally.

Logan Ewing (02:06):

It’s kind of like Yellowstone, right?

Sevan Matossian (02:09):

Yeah, but not as good. It was stupid. It was a soap opera. I guess. I wonder if Yellowstone’s considered a soap opera. Hey, dude, what did you think about the Phil piece? I slammed the shit out of it, but everyone seems to love it. I’m the only one.

Logan Ewing (02:23):

That’s super cool. It is super cool.

Sevan Matossian (02:24):

Did like it.

Logan Ewing (02:26):

Yeah. Phil’s a good dude.

Sevan Matossian (02:27):

I hear you. I think Phil’s a good dude too. And I think Scott Vander slut. It makes amazing content best in the biz, but I just watched it and I’m like, Hey, this should have only been four minutes long, and it’s almost like a eulogy. It’s just a bunch of, look at these people. I’m getting tore up. Phil documentary was excellent. Look it. Yeah. Yeah.

Logan Ewing (02:49):

I thought it was really good. I don’t know how much Scott Bennett, Ben and Frank, the media team that people see at the events. I don’t know how much they had to do with it. There’s another guy, Josh, that I think that it was his project. I don’t know if he had help on it, but I guess he’s worked on some really big projects before. I mean, he knows what he’s doing.

Sevan Matossian (03:14):

Did you cry?

Logan Ewing (03:16):

I didn’t cry, but I see Phil every day. I talk to Phil. Every time I see him, he’s just super cool. Last year I was taking care of somebody’s cat, and then they ended up that they weren’t coming back, so we had to figure out where to take it and took it over to Phil’s and they’re vibing there.

Sevan Matossian (03:38):

So you hate Phil. He got the cat. You got the second cat?

Logan Ewing (03:41):

No, no. I gave it to Phil.

Sevan Matossian (03:43):

Oh. Oh. I give the second.

Logan Ewing (03:45):

I didn’t want it. I was supposed to watch it for three months and then it was going to turn into a permanent thing, and I was like, I don’t really want a cat. So

Sevan Matossian (03:55):

Listen, if I hate you, I give you a cat or use coffee machine. An old coffee machine.

Logan Ewing (04:01):

That’s fair. That’s fair. Yeah. I’m not a big cat guy, so that was a little hard for me to take care of it for that long.

Sevan Matossian (04:11):

I would love cats. I would love cats. I could really use it. I would love to have five cats, but I live on this old highway and they’ll just get smooshed. I just want ’em just because they would eat gophers and shit, and I have so many gophers.

Logan Ewing (04:23):

They are good for that.

Sevan Matossian (04:25):

Logan, you’re mayhem athlete.

Logan Ewing (04:27):


Sevan Matossian (04:28):

And you’re living in Cookville.

Logan Ewing (04:30):


Sevan Matossian (04:31):

And you’re your homeboy is Roman. That’s one of your main, Hey, you want to jump rope together with me? He’s like your playground buddy.

Logan Ewing (04:40):

Yeah. That’s one way to put it. Yeah, and I mean, we’ve had different people come in and out at different stages and jump in with us priests right before semis and then lead up to the games Victoria was in with us, but since about maybe November of last year on every workout that I’ve done in Cookville has been with him and vice versa.

Sevan Matossian (05:07):

Yeah. Can you tell me about that? And by the way, I respect the fact that people like the Phil video too, by the way. And I’m glad, and it’s doing great, by the way, and it’s not a dig towards Phil. No one should know that it’s just a shitty film, and you guys don’t have the guts to say it’s bad because Phil’s a good guy. I understand. Okay. You don’t want to push back Logan and be like, no, no, it’s great.

Logan Ewing (05:30):

I mean, I thought it was great, so I’m just going to

Sevan Matossian (05:33):

Stick with great.

Logan Ewing (05:34):

But this is America, so everybody’s entitled to their own opinion for the most part. Sometimes maybe not so much

Sevan Matossian (05:44):

Supposed to be entitled to it. Hey, do you watch this show very often?

Logan Ewing (05:49):


Sevan Matossian (05:50):

Do you know who Philip Kelly is?

Logan Ewing (05:53):

I do not. I know when you have most of the CrossFit athletes on I’ll, a lot of those.

Sevan Matossian (05:58):

There’s a dude in the comments named Philip Kelly, and this dude right here with the hat on could be like his little brother. It’s crazy. It’s crazy. Who is that? What is that guy’s name?

Logan Ewing (06:10):

His name’s Dylan. He’s one of my best friends.

Sevan Matossian (06:13):

Oh my goodness. I cannot believe how much he looks like this dude. Philip Kelly, I’m friends with who’s in the comments all the time. It’s nuts. He looks a little more stout than Philip. I mean, Philip’s buff and all, but your dude looks stout.

Logan Ewing (06:26):

Oh, damn. He would love that compliment.

Sevan Matossian (06:29):

Yeah. Is he buff? Is that dude buff? Dylan? He looks buff. He looks thick.

Logan Ewing (06:33):

Sure. I

Sevan Matossian (06:34):

Say so, but Oh, okay.

Logan Ewing (06:37):

My standings a little higher.

Sevan Matossian (06:39):

Well, yeah. You’ve been compromised. Your perspective

Logan Ewing (06:43):


Sevan Matossian (06:43):


Logan Ewing (06:45):

A hundred percent.

Sevan Matossian (06:46):

Jeffrey Birchfield opinions are like assholes. Avon has one. All right. Fair enough. Bruce Wayne. Hey, Logan.

Logan Ewing (06:55):


Sevan Matossian (06:59):

Audrey. You’re making Logan uncomfortable.

Logan Ewing (07:01):


Sevan Matossian (07:02):

Zero uncomfortable.

Logan Ewing (07:03):

No, no, no, no, no. It takes a lot to make me feel uncomfortable.

Sevan Matossian (07:11):

Can you tell me the early, can you tell me how you ended up at Mayhem? And then I’m curious how you got partnered with how that friendship with Roman sprouted, but how did you end up there?

Logan Ewing (07:22):

Yeah, so it would’ve been late 2019. I qualified for some sanctional, and I was 18 years old, so didn’t really know what we were doing. Didn’t really have a strict program. So I’d kind of reached out to Haley. I knew her from our teenage years, and I was like, Hey, what should I be doing? She was like, just sign up, forhe Athlete. And then started Doinghe Athlete, got connected, kind with Jake. I’d been friends with Paige for a little while. So just through that

Sevan Matossian (07:55):

Year, Paige Powers.

Logan Ewing (07:57):

Yeah, so through that Covid, the quarantine and all that, I was just religiously following Mayhem athlete. Everything I did was Mayhem Athlete. And then later that year,

Sevan Matossian (08:09):

Logan, sorry, where were you living then?

Logan Ewing (08:11):

Still back home in Colorado.

Sevan Matossian (08:13):


Logan Ewing (08:14):

Yeah. So then went out in December to Michigan to train with Paige. So it was Paige, Darren, jj, and happened to be a time where Rich was in town. And I’d met Rich at Strength and Depth. Yeah, right there. I met him there.

Sevan Matossian (08:32):

That’s a trip that Rich was there. He didn’t go back there very often, but yeah, good timing.

Logan Ewing (08:38):

I think it was under some unfortunate circumstances, like a family member passing, I think.


But worked out with him a little bit. And then, funny enough, my dad played college football with Jim Hensel, who does the Mayhem mindset stuff. And I guess Jim’s first workout, CrossFit workout ever was with my dad. So I just had a lot of relationships and riches. Cousins were telling me I should come down here sometime. And then kind of just like a perfect storm, I guess. I kept getting removed from classes. I was in college, I still am, but kept getting removed from classes. I didn’t have the jab, and Colorado was going in a direction that I didn’t love for all that stuff. So then I was like, I kind of want to see what else I could do. Waited for my fiance. She was just a little bit younger than me, so she still hadn’t graduated yet. So once she graduated, it was like, Hey, I really want to move over there, see what I can do if I dedicate everything to it and train in an environment like that. My dad owns the gym. I went to great affiliate. I would say I’m biased, but I’d say it’s the best in Colorado, but we just not

Sevan Matossian (09:53):

A lot’s the best in Colorado, too. Fantastic gym. What’s the name of it?

Logan Ewing (09:57):

CrossFit nine seven. Oh

Sevan Matossian (09:58):

Yeah. Best gym in Colorado. I agree.

Logan Ewing (10:00):

There you go. Yeah. There’s not a lot of athletes up north especially, so it was just hard training alone all the time. So then I wanted to move out here, reached out to some people, checked it out, and then moved. And then to answer the next part of your question with Roman, we had

Sevan Matossian (10:18):

A big last, wait, hold on, hold on, hold on. Hold on a second. Pump the brake. That’s you on the cover of nine seven Oh

Logan Ewing (10:26):

Sure is. Oh, that’s in the old space too. I think that might’ve been right before the teenage games in 2018.

Sevan Matossian (10:36):

Dude, that’s a nice gym. Is the new one better? You’re saying

Logan Ewing (10:40):

The new one’s better? They grew too fast though. They started getting so many, I mean, they had a good member base to begin with, but they got so many members over the last maybe 18 months that, I mean, the space they’re in, it seemed like it was never going to be too small. And now it’s too small. It’s like 30 people at every class.

Sevan Matossian (11:00):

Oh, that’s awesome. I love to hear that. Your dad’s a beast too, by the way. Your dad’s huge. What a studly looking dude.

Logan Ewing (11:08):

I’ve got some good jeans.

Sevan Matossian (11:11):


Logan Ewing (11:11):

Unfortunate. On my dad’s side, I’m the only one that’s under six foot. They’re all six three or taller.

Sevan Matossian (11:17):

Yeah, I saw some pictures of him in here, and I was like, holy crap. Yeah, look at this dude. He looks like a movie star.

Logan Ewing (11:26):

Well, let’s not talk too much about that watching. It’s going to inflate his ego.

Sevan Matossian (11:32):

Yeah, look at him. I think I have that shirt that he has that’s issued to every dude when he gets old.

Logan Ewing (11:38):

Yeah. Yeah. He used to compete. He made the games the year after I did. So he made it in 2019, and then he didn’t have the videos and he didn’t feel like redoing it. He didn’t really want to go, so he just didn’t, didn’t do it. He was like, all right, he got

Sevan Matossian (11:56):

More important stuff to do. Does he want you to go to the games? Is that something he wants you to do? Does he ever talk you out of it? Like, Hey, stop fooling around with that?

Logan Ewing (12:03):

Nope. Nope. Since maybe when I was 15. It’s always been something that I’ve wanted to do, and both of my parents have always supported it.

Sevan Matossian (12:13):

How close did you get to going as a teen?

Logan Ewing (12:16):

I went, I went in 18. I missed it by one spot. I missed it by one point in 2017, which sucked because my best friend who just happened to train at the same gym, he made it that year. And then 2016, I had some elbow surgeries and missed it by maybe two spots that year.

Sevan Matossian (12:35):

And how did you do in 2018?

Logan Ewing (12:39):

Not great. I didn’t really know how to climb a rope. Well, I knew how to climb it legless, and so I was trying to figure out how to do it with my legs. And when I touched the top, I just kind of free fall, and I fell onto the rope, and they said it was a little tear in my quad. So that affected me more than, because we had yolk carries after it, and I was just slowly going left the whole time of that leg. But I mean, it was a great experience. I can’t be too mad. I didn’t really have a lot of competition experience going into it. So

Sevan Matossian (13:12):

What year did your dad open the gym, Logan?

Logan Ewing (13:14):

So the gym has been around since 2010 is when it started, but then him and his friends bought it in early 2018 and changed the name, and then eventually moved it later that year.

Sevan Matossian (13:32):

Okay, okay. I was going to be like, how did you not know how to climb a rope with legs? But your dad didn’t actually own the gym till 2018?

Logan Ewing (13:41):

Yeah, I mean, they’d all taught me the techniques, and I figured if I can do it without my legs, I’m cool enough that I don’t need to learn how to do it that way. And that kind of bit me right in the ass.

Sevan Matossian (13:52):

Yep. Yep. I can totally, totally relate to that. You probably just did the pinch method. Yeah, I could always climb a rope easy, and I just did the pinch method, and then a few years ago, I’m like, I’m learning the other method too.

Logan Ewing (14:06):

By pinch

Sevan Matossian (14:06):

I mean just that where you just put your two

Logan Ewing (14:08):

Feet together and show up. A

Sevan Matossian (14:09):

Little kid does. Yeah.

Logan Ewing (14:10):

Yeah. It didn’t help that back then. People were still teaching the Spanish rap a lot where you wrap it all the way around. So I would try to do that, and it was honestly, to this day, I don’t know if I could do it that way.

Sevan Matossian (14:25):

Yeah, that’s ridiculous.

Logan Ewing (14:26):

Maybe I maybe could, but it would take me probably two or three reps to actually figure out how to do it.

Sevan Matossian (14:33):

Yeah, that’s funny. I forgot all about that. I don’t see anybody do that. No,

Logan Ewing (14:37):

I mean, unless you were, no, I can’t even think of a time when you would need to use that.

Sevan Matossian (14:45):

So you’re in Colorado and you’re in school, and everyone there is taking drugs, and since you won’t take, they kick you out of the class.

Logan Ewing (14:53):


Sevan Matossian (14:55):

Do you try to go anyway and they’re like a mystery

Logan Ewing (14:57):


Sevan Matossian (14:57):

Show your track marks, show us your track marks.

Logan Ewing (15:00):

I tried, and then I was only able to get one professor to sign off on me. And this is the dirty thing that they did out there, is there were a lot of classes that were offered online


That once they made the requirement, the JAB requirement, once they made that requirement, they took those classes off from the online, so it kind of forced you to get it. So I mean, there was one semester where I was taking maybe three credits, so one class and then six credits. So I think I had three semesters, four semesters in a row that it was like I basically wasn’t even going to school. And even including when I moved out here, I switched to cu, which is Colorado, switched online there, and their admissions office for their online program and their in-person program are the same. So the day that the semester started, all my classes were gone because I didn’t submit the vaccine paperwork,

Sevan Matossian (16:00):

No shit.

Logan Ewing (16:01):

And then I couldn’t get in for that class. So I was like, this is ridiculous. What am I supposed to do?

Sevan Matossian (16:10):

How glad are you that you didn’t get it though? Now in hindsight, you’re like,

Logan Ewing (16:15):

Well, if you look at my medical records, they tell you a different story. But yeah, I’m glad I hear. Well,

Sevan Matossian (16:24):

Sorry, I didn’t mean to doubt you then.

Logan Ewing (16:26):

No, I had to get into Canada somehow last year. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (16:31):

Was that first a CrossFit event?

Logan Ewing (16:33):

Yeah, for Atlas games.

Sevan Matossian (16:35):

Oh, okay. Hold on, we’ll get to that in a second. Wow. Okay. So sorry. If you look at what, we’ll get to that in a second. If we look at,

Logan Ewing (16:40):

Yeah, I mean, a lot of people have it on their medical record now that didn’t actually get it.

Sevan Matossian (16:46):

Yeah. A games athlete already told me last year, Hey, I don’t have it. But to get in the country, to get in the United States, I had to have it.

Logan Ewing (16:54):

Yeah. Was

Sevan Matossian (16:57):

That terrible? Was that easy to do? Is that easy to do?

Logan Ewing (17:01):

I can’t speak for everybody, but if you know people, I’m sure it’s not the hardest thing to do, especially if you’re in one of those states that had such strict requirements. They were probably doing it for tons of people anyways, and their bosses and supervisors and everything probably didn’t really care either. But yeah, I knew people my age that our have been athletes their whole lives, like basketball and soccer players that got the jab and had heart issues from it. And I was like, I had had covid, and it wasn’t that bad. So I was like, I’ll get it again, and I’ll deal with it. Even if I do get sick, it’s still better than, in my opinion, it’s still better than the potential of what the jab could do. And I told

Sevan Matossian (17:52):

If I got that thing, I wouldn’t sleep well at night. I’d be tripping every night I went to bed,

Logan Ewing (17:57):


Sevan Matossian (17:57):

This my last day? Is this my last day? I would be tripping.

Logan Ewing (18:01):

I would be freaking out if I drank too much caffeine one day and my heart was racing, I’d be like, this is it. I’m going to die today. My heart’s going to explode today. Because I thought I needed to get it. Yeah. I knew I wasn’t going to get it though.

Sevan Matossian (18:17):

I was in this coffee shop the other day, and granted, I’m in Santa Cruz, it’s kind of like, just imagine one of those weird hippie places in Colorado. That’s where I live.


But the hippies aren’t hippies anymore. There are no more hippies. They’re all think of ’em. They’re more like Nazis. It’s weird. Overnight, everything changed. And I loved them as hippies, but I was in there and there’s a guy behind the counter, and he’s probably like 23 years old, and this lady walks up to me and she starts talking to me about this October 4th emergency broadcast system test. And she’s telling me that when the emergency broadcast system sends out the signal, everyone who got the injection is going to turn into a zombie. And I’m just listening to her waiting for my peanut butter smoothie to be made. And I’m like, Hey, dude, extra peanut butter. Don’t beat GenY on that. And the guy behind then showed this lady walks away, and then the guy behind the counter is like, Hey, what was that lady saying? I go, just some weird shit about emergency broadcast alerts going to turn all the vax people into zombies. He’s like, what? And he starts freaking out. He’s a young kid, and he’s like, what are you going to do? I’m like, I didn’t take those drugs. And he’s like, I did. I’m like, don’t worry about it. You’re fine. You don’t even know if you get turned into a zombie.

Logan Ewing (19:34):

Yeah. What are you going to do? Well, I’m not going to turn into a zombie. I

Sevan Matossian (19:37):

Nothing. Sit at my house gun and shoot you if you come through the front door like this.

Logan Ewing (19:44):

Oh, man. Can you have guns out there in California?

Sevan Matossian (19:47):

You can. You kind of, you can.

Logan Ewing (19:50):


Sevan Matossian (19:51):

You can.

Logan Ewing (19:52):

I didn’t know if they took that away from you guys, it or

Sevan Matossian (19:54):

Not, or you’re just running Dave’s house. Dave’s got a bunch of guns.

Logan Ewing (19:57):

There you go. That’s smart. How far is he from you?

Sevan Matossian (20:00):

Close 11 miles, basically, Greg’s like 11 miles south of me, and then Greg Glassman, and then another 11 miles past that is Dave, and we’re along this corridor and then going the other way, probably like 25 miles north of me. If it were a straight line would be Don. Don lives up here too. Don fall.

Logan Ewing (20:18):

Oh, I didn’t know that.

Sevan Matossian (20:19):

The new guy? Yeah,

Logan Ewing (20:20):

Yeah. Yeah. Not the old guy. Not the old guy from Boulder.

Sevan Matossian (20:25):

No, not that guy. That guy definitely got turned into a zombie. That guy was a zombie, double zombie.

Logan Ewing (20:32):

I think I met him when I was 13. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (20:35):

Who? Rosa.

Logan Ewing (20:36):


Sevan Matossian (20:37):

You did meet Rosa. How did that happen? Oh, because he’s a Colorado guy.

Logan Ewing (20:42):


Sevan Matossian (20:43):

Yeah. They wear their pants tight in Boulder. Every time I go there, they’re like, man, the boys wear their pants tight here.

Logan Ewing (20:51):

Yeah, it’s a different place. It’s beautiful there. But man, the people,

Sevan Matossian (20:54):

It’s beautiful. That was a downer because of the Colorado thing. So then you go to Michigan and you’re hanging out with Darren, and you’re hanging out with Paige was there also?

Logan Ewing (21:10):

Yep. And jj,

Sevan Matossian (21:12):

Who’s jj?

Logan Ewing (21:14):

Rich’s cousin that he’s on a team right now. I can’t remember their team name. I would say he’s the cousin that still competes. He’s a bigger guy. He’s like six three, maybe not six.

Sevan Matossian (21:28):

So he’s related to Darren too?

Logan Ewing (21:30):

Yeah, they’re a part of that massive cousin group.

Sevan Matossian (21:35):

Okay. And then so you go there and how long do you train there? Is it just a weekend or you spend some time?

Logan Ewing (21:40):

I think I stayed about a week. I mean, this was during the height of Covid, so flights were dirt cheap then. So I’m pretty sure I changed my flight to stay a little longer because Rich was in town. So I want to say a week.

Sevan Matossian (21:57):

And there you get kind of a taste of the mayhem. Do you actually get to talk with Rich and train with him a little?

Logan Ewing (22:02):

Oh yeah. Yeah. I mean, me, him and his cousins, we were lifting together. We were doing all of our stuff together. It was super fun. And I mean, it was good vibes. Part of me was nervous. I mean, I’d obviously been around Rich, Matt, Tia. I’ve been around them before when I was competing. And so it’s like they are just people, but there’s still that aspect of like, oh my God, it’s rich. So I was just trying to be normal and not starstruck. And then, yeah, so we were just talking and it was fun. So then felt like maybe that was a good foundation to lay to go forward and maybe think about moving to Tennessee.

Sevan Matossian (22:55):

And then here you’re with Matt. Is this at, what games was this at?

Logan Ewing (23:00):

This was strength and depth. So

Sevan Matossian (23:02):


Logan Ewing (23:02):

Was January of 2020 in London. That was my first sanction when I was 18, competed against him. He beat me, believe it or not.

Sevan Matossian (23:12):

Oh, crazy. Oh, that’s cool to say. You got to compete with him or against,

Logan Ewing (23:18):

Yeah. Yeah. That was a good time.

Sevan Matossian (23:24):

So you go there, you like him, and then how soon after are you like, oh, shit, I’m just going to pick up and move to Cookville?

Logan Ewing (23:33):

So I had a really fun living situation. I was living with my friends, so it definitely took a lot longer than I would’ve imagined it would take. I want to say maybe four months later when stuff was still going down with school and everything, that’s when I really gave it the sit down and think about it for a while thing. And then talked to my now fiance. I was like, Hey, you’re graduating. It would just be something that you would be interested in. And I was fully expecting to have to have a PowerPoint ready. And she was just like, yeah, okay. All right. So

Sevan Matossian (24:16):

Hey, is that weird? I think of Nashville as another country for me. I might as well move to Spain. I’m in California, and if my wife was like, you and your chick were Colorado natives.

Logan Ewing (24:29):

I mean, pretty much for her. She moved there when she was like seven.

Sevan Matossian (24:35):

So it is a trip to move to Nashville. I don’t know whether it is or it isn’t, but it just seems like a different place. It’s the south, you know what I mean? They take a pot and they put it in the driveway and they throw a Turkey in it.

Logan Ewing (24:49):

For me, I think it was a little easier. It reminded me of a little bit more of what Colorado used to be. We used to be known as kind of the purple state. So Nashville obviously has, it’s very diverse in the people. The rest of the south is very red, but Nashville’s kind of both. So it reminded me of what Colorado used to be before it became a second California.

Sevan Matossian (25:17):

Really? Colorado’s a second California.

Logan Ewing (25:19):

Oh, dude, it’s so bad. Yeah, it’s bad.

Sevan Matossian (25:22):

Oh, I had no idea.

Logan Ewing (25:24):

Luckily up where my parents live and where I’m from, it’s not too bad. We’re up north. And actually the county that I was living in, weld County, which isn’t where my parents live, unfortunately, but I was living there before I moved here. They always, every time there’s voting, they want to become a part of Wyoming. They say it reflects their values and beliefs better, which I’d be for it. They don’t have a state income tax.

Sevan Matossian (25:52):

So we like the blue states because we like a pesto. And the theater and parks, we don’t like the blue states because we don’t think you should chop off penises. No chopping off.

Logan Ewing (26:10):

No chopping penises.

Sevan Matossian (26:12):

And we don’t think it’s okay to rob small businesses under any circumstance. Right. No robbing small businesses. And what about in California? They want to make it illegal to investigate the death of a baby up to seven days after it’s born. We don’t like that either. Right. That sounds like it’s okay to kill a baby, right?

Logan Ewing (26:32):

Yeah. I

Sevan Matossian (26:33):

Wish I was extreme. That’s not even extreme. Yeah, that That’s not even extreme here. We don’t like that.

Logan Ewing (26:39):

Yeah, that’s unreal. All

Sevan Matossian (26:39):

Right, fine. That’s good. But we do pesto and the theater and parks.

Logan Ewing (26:44):

I mean, I can’t really say I know much about pesto or theater, but yeah,

Sevan Matossian (26:50):

Parks cool.

Logan Ewing (26:51):

Parks are cool.

Sevan Matossian (26:52):

Yeah, it’s cool. It’s cool. Even the dudes who dress as women, it’s cool if they don’t do it at the schools or at the library, but they just do it at the theater. It’s cool. Shit. It’s fun. I’ll vouch you on. Yeah,

Logan Ewing (27:05):

Yeah. There we go.

Sevan Matossian (27:06):

I got your back. We’ll leave it there. Yeah. Alright, so we don’t like stealing or hurting kids. You and I could be neighbors

Logan Ewing (27:16):

Just not in California.

Sevan Matossian (27:17):

Once in a while, I like to fill the chinet up with, do you know what a chimney is?

Logan Ewing (27:23):

I could not tell you what that is. It’s

Sevan Matossian (27:24):

Some liberal stuff too. It’s like a fancy steel thing and you burn wood in it and you gather around it and you smoke weeded. But I have a chimney, and at Christmas time after Christmas, I like to stuff it with the dead Christmas tree and then get the leaf blower and blow into it so it makes crazy smoke. So much smoke that my neighbors will call the fire department and my wife gets really pissed at me. You ever done a leaf blower and fire?

Logan Ewing (27:51):

I cannot say I have.

Sevan Matossian (27:53):

Oh dude.

Logan Ewing (27:55):

We did used to light our hands on fire though. You’d spray it with Axe body spray and then

Sevan Matossian (28:00):

Yeah, that’s fine. That’s fine. Well, that’s something to look forward to when you have kids, a leaf blower and fire. I’m really disappointed. Your dad looks like the kind of dad who would’ve done a little bit of leaf blower and fire with you.

Logan Ewing (28:11):

You do anything with fire in Colorado and people are mad because the state burns all the time. Yeah, it’s a bad fire state. I’m not going to lie.

Sevan Matossian (28:22):

David Weed pesto is super gay. I use it sparingly buddy. Just a little bit of gay. I just lather my pizza with a little bit. I just have a little bit of gay.

Logan Ewing (28:31):

Is it like you have a certain amount you can have per week before it becomes

Sevan Matossian (28:37):

One time I had a whole pest of pizza and I just craved dick for a month after that. Oh, I keep telling myself, your dad’s listening. I apologize. I hope your mom’s

Logan Ewing (28:47):

Not. Oh dude. He doesn’t care. And she’s used to it.

Sevan Matossian (28:51):

Okay. How many boys are there in your family?

Logan Ewing (28:54):

Two. Me and an older brother.

Sevan Matossian (29:03):

So you go back to Colorado, she’s graduating and then it’s kind of a four month dance with her and you kind of cutting the cord with your homeboys in Colorado. And then how does someone make the leap to Cookville? Are you like, Hey girl, what’s your girl’s name?

Logan Ewing (29:18):


Sevan Matossian (29:19):

Leslie. You’re like, Hey Leslie, we’re going to go there. We got three grand saved up. We’re going to sell your car. We’re going to drive across the country in a Honda Civic and rent a place and just start a life there. God, that sounds bold. Is that how it works?

Logan Ewing (29:32):

I mean, not quite, but in a way, yes. It was kind of like, just take the chance. We’re young and it’s cheaper to live out here than it is there by a mile. So there’s that. And then just, it was more of like a, Hey, we’ll figure this thing out when we go. I still, luckily I have my last house that I was at in Colorado, all of my furniture and everything was kind of.
