A highlight from Time Travel to 1994: A Journey into the Music and Movies of that year.
"Well, here we are, episode 119. And on this episode, myself in the wrecking tube, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. We'll be talking about the year 1994, in music and movies I think, it's always interesting. So sit back, relax, break out your flannel shirt, your grungy jeans, and enjoy 1994 music. It was an interesting year, so I think you'll enjoy it. More interesting than what Todd Zauchman thinks it is. He thinks it's nothing, so we'll see. The KLFB studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music, enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends, and welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not gonna say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Dlive, Twitch, and X, formerly known as Twitter, and I don't know how many other live platforms. Well, it's gonna be a good show tonight. It's gonna be an interesting show tonight. Yeah, 1994. As I said in the intro, my friend Todd Zauchman just absolutely sent me a text destroying the year 1994. Oh, I just looked up 1994, I don't know what you're gonna talk about, there's a few things and I don't know how you're gonna make a whole show out of it, and good luck with that, because that's how he talks. That's exactly how he talks. I'm just gonna do this, and you know, it's not gonna be a good, blah, blah, blah, blah. That's how he talks. Now, he'll deny that, and you'll never know if that's the way he talks or not. He'll just have to take my word for it. I'm Todd Zauchman, and I don't know about 1994. Well, enough about him. He'll probably be piping in pretty soon, but yeah, 1994, it's a good year. It was a good year for Mark Smith from the Music Rellers Show and Luke Colicchio from the Music Rellers Show. That's for damn sure. It was. What's up, gentlemen? It was a really good year. How you doing? I was just guessing. I figured for 94, listen, we were all younger, so it was better. It was a big year. Hey. So I have to stop right here. Dave Phillips, who's been watching the podcast from pretty much day one, Patty Yossi. Hi, Patty. Good evening. I love you. Dave Phillips, for the last couple of weeks, he's piped in at the end, and he's like, I missed it. Like something's changed. Ah, Tiffany Van Hill. That's my buddy. That's my buddy, Tiffany. She's one of the people that teaches me how to work with horses. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. And she knows what she's talking about. She's modest, but she's very good at what she does. As are all of my friends and teachers, trainers, mentors from The Herd Foundation in Delray Beach, Florida. It's a nonprofit if you're in the mood to donate today. Look them up. Herd Foundation. Give us some money. Nah, I'm not going like that. No. No, we do. We help veterans. We help veterans, and so it's a good cause. But back to Tiffany. Yep. That's my buddy. Good evening. The Herd Foundation teaches us so much. That's right. That's right. Maybe I'll do a Herd Foundation podcast. You should. Since I'm pretty good at it. You're going to have horses on? What's the horse named after the cookie? Huh? Isn't there a horse named after a cookie? What are some of the horses' names? Oh, Fig Newton. Fig Newton. Yeah. Fig Newton. That's my boy. That's my boy. Good looking horse. Yes. Yes, he is. And we have Stitch. Fig Newton is a retired dressage horse, dancing horse, right? Echoes of Echo and the Bunny Men bring on the dancing horses. We have Stitch. He's a retired racehorse. We have Miss America. She's a retired jumper. Then we have two mini horses. We have Cinnamon. She was a cot horse. You know, pulls the kids around. As would be Sammy. Sammy's the one that looks like Kaja Gugu for you people from the 80s. Looks like Lamal. It looks like Lamal from Kaja Gugu. Gotta do. And he was saved from a kill pen. Yeah. But he's a mini, but he thinks he's a Clydesdale. What do they do with horses after that? Is that the proverbial glue factory? All right. You know what? Right away. Penalty box. Oh. He's raining on my parade. I'm in a good mood. Now I'm all bummed out. Thanks. You feel sad for the drummer now. This is going to be a horrible show now. Leave it to the drummer. Right, Mark? Leave it to the drummer. Get out. It's always the drummer's fault. That's right. See, Tiffany says, that does not exist past our gates, Lou. Because nobody wants to talk. Back to the penalty box. Great start to the show. Lou is just in a mood tonight. I think he's been hitting the whistle. What's going to happen? You're going to come back and it's going to be an empty chair. He's very ornery tonight. Right away. He's very ornery. All right. He's filling his oats, as they would say. Yeah. All right. Lou's back. I'm all right. I'm all right. Okay. Enough about horses, although I could now, at this point, talk about horses for two hours. I love it. I love it. But instead, gentlemen, first of all, how's things on the music relish show? You. Take it away, Lou. Sure. It's fine. It was such an awful show. I thought I said the wrong show for a second there. It's been nothing short of amazing. Don't jump over each other to answer that question. It's always fun. Last week was fun. We got knocked down a bit by Warner Brothers because we played a clip of an America song featuring Dan Peake. Yeah. You're going to watch that. Yeah. We talked through the whole thing, but Spotify is much cooler than YouTube. YouTube sucks like that. YouTube, they have a very strong algorithm. They can kiss my rosy red ass over that. That's right. You tell them, Lou. Fuckers. That's right. Get me kicked off YouTube. That's right. Let me see. John Morris, he was our shift commander. When I met him, I was, I think, a two striper, and he was what they called a butterbot. He was a second lieutenant, I believe. He said, tell them stories from the Nipah Hut in the Philippines. That's a big no. That's a whole other podcast, but they would never make it on the air. Just leave it at that. It's like a chain of Nipah Huts? No. It was a bar slash club called the Nipah Hut. Tell one story. No. They had a giant spaceship that would come down from the top. It's kind of like George Clinton in parliament. At the end of the show, this big spaceship came down from the top. Smoke. Like you said, parliament fucking pelican. Then the thing went open, and everyone would walk up and get up on stage, all those drunk GIs. Like, yeah, I'm going in the spaceship, and you go down these stairs, and you're in a fucking basement. I don't think it was a basement. It's like something from a fucking horror movie. How do you get out? And then somebody goes, this way, this way, go, go, go, go. That's the cleanest story I can tell you. It's the cleanest story I can tell you. Sounds like fun. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. I got a story for you off the air one of these days. So okay, music relish show's going good. Excellent. I just wanted to say, Lou brought up, he made the show. His segment on bad love songs. That will go down in history as some of the best podcasting ever. Bad love songs? Really bad love songs. The worst love songs of all time, like in rock. It's a deep vein. Is that something, is that like content I could probably like borrow with Perry Mind? Because I'd love to hear that list someday. We voted him off the board. We're no longer a false triumvirate democracy. Wait a minute. We toppled the AI monarchy. There's three of us on this one. Are you two going to overthrow me too? Are you like rebels? None of those stories you're told, no. They're wrecking too. Instead I'll start calling you the Sandinistas. The hostile takeovers. You go on podcasts just to take them over? Like Amiens took over the White House. Really, yeah. Yeah, we could do that. I would love to. Maybe next week we'll do, we'll take a break from the years and we'll do like a, kind of a jambalaya, you know, of stuff. Like throw some music news in there. We'll do some trivia. Maybe I'll come up with some questions for you guys. You could give us that deep vein of worst love songs ever. And it's funny, we noticed that several of them made everyone's list of worst love songs. So it's got to be universally bad. Okay. If everyone said that, that fucking song. Then there were a couple where I said I liked the song, but Lou and Perry were like, what? I'm always, you know, on the one side. Yeah, the one. When it falls into like that kind of metal, metal category, you have a soft spot. Air metal. Metal ballads. Oh my God. How I grew up. Yeah, yeah. As young as Ron Mark, you didn't have to deal with those 70s ones. Yeah, that's true. I did. This fucking guy. Blah. See what I mean? He's setting the bar high. Remember, this is how he talks. I don't think there's anything good about 1994. Blah. So he talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yeah, well, an American Arnold Schwarzenegger. He talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent. We're going to pass the bar on this one. I am here. Let me see if you can entertain me. 1994. Blah. All right. So let's actually get right into 1994. Yeah. So we'll start on January 19th, 1994. Bryan Adams becomes the first major Western music star to perform in Vietnam since the end of the Vietnam War. Oh, shit. Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, yeah. Wow. On January 21st to February, as it's spelled, the Big Day Out Festival takes place, again, expanding from those previous years. Blah, blah, blah. Auckland, New Zealand. The festival is headlined by Soundgarden, Ramones, and Bjork. Nice. That's an interesting... Probably each night there were headlines. I would love to see Bjork. Me too. I would never want to see the Ramones. They'll never get back together again. Unless they perform in the Pet Sematary. Yeah. Hey, Lou, can you put him in the green room? No, I'd like that one. That's a good one. Come on, there's a little crossover. Put him in the green room. Put him in the green room. Okay, yeah, yeah. Oh, it's going to be a long show. It's going to be a long one tonight. I feel better about myself now. Got a little redemption? The redemption song? Yes. I got a Buffett story for you. Oh, yeah? His one song was The Pirate Looks at 40. He would segue into Bob Marley's redemption song. Oh, jeez. And it didn't quite... Wait a minute. Buddy, that is the quickest way to get to the penalty box. I'm not playing it, though. I know you're not. You're poking the rhino right now. I'm a guitarist. You're poking the rhino right now. You're not a rhino, you're a nice guy. Come on, we went through that last week. And so, as I've been saying each week, I'm just going to say right now, where's Jack? Okay, and we'll move on from that. Hey, Jack. Hey, Jack, please come back. He didn't listen before, so I don't think he's listening now. Let's see. January 25th, Alice in Chains released their Jar of Flies album, which makes its U .S. chart debut at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first ever EP to do that. Right? But they still are always talked about as like number three or number four out of the big four. Big four being? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden. And Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains is never getting that kind of... Whereas... That first album, the record company made them sound like another band. Yeah. And that's not their fault. They were produced that way. Dirt was a great album. Yes, yes. And Layne Staley was one of the greatest frontmen ever. Just as cool as the other side of the pillow, as they say. Yeah. voice Very unique also. Today we were talking about what we were going to talk about in the show. And he goes, when I saw the videos, he goes, I didn't match his face with the way he looked. Right? He said he was expecting like a grungy, more... No, he was slick. He was slick. In the Man in the Box video, he's got the kind of long... But then he changed it up. He slicked the hair back, he wore the shades, you know. Just turned into a... Suzanne McPhail. Another one of my horse people. She's the one that introduced me to that whole thing. And she said, who's Jack? That's right, I guess. At this point. On January 29th, The Supremes' Mary Wilson is injured when her Jeep hits a freeway median and flips over just outside of LA. Wilson's 14 -year -old son is killed in the accident. What a good day. Ah, this fucking... I saw this and I was like... Dead horses was a bummer. I know, I know. I saw this and I'm like, there's no way around this. February 1st, Green Day releases their breakthrough album, Dookie. Ushering in the mid -1990s punk revival. Dookie eventually achieves diamond certification. Now, I did like them back then. I actually did. I was stationed in Southern California in Riverside. And I decided to get like a side job. You know, I was in the Air Force. But I was like, I want to make a little more money. I want to do something. So I got a job at a record store. Cool. Was it Spencer's or something? Forget the name of it. Oh, Spencer's. They sold all the trinkets, too. No, no, it wasn't Spencer's then. It was something like that. It was a chain. Hot topic. They sold DVDs, too. FYE. No, it wasn't that. I'll remember it. I was working there when Dookie came out and the fucking whole wall was covered with Dookie CDs and they were flying off the shelves. It had a pretty fresh sound. It was fresh then. And coming off the 80s were kind of slick in a lot of ways, except for some of the real heavy alternative. But to hear a song like that on the radio, that was like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit on mainstream rock radio. Good drummer, too. As a band, whether you like him or not, I think he's really good. Billy Joe Armstrong. Oh, Trey Cool. Trey Cool, yeah. February 7th, Blind Melons lead singer is Shannon Poon forced to leave the American Music Awards ceremony because he is loud and disruptive behavior. Poon is later charged with battery assault, resisting arrest, and destroying a police station telephone. Now, this is the dude that sang, you know, And I don't really care if I sleep all day And he's in the daisy field, so you think he's like this really, like, chill dude. And like, you know, me and the B -girl, man, you know. The B -girl, yes. And the tap -dancing B -girl, and like, I'm just this dude's a fucking lunatic. He was taking substances that made him. Oh, yeah. That was a short career. Was it him that did a duet with Guns N' Roses? What was the video, a song from Guns N' Roses with a video where they're up on like a water tower and they jump into the water or something. I forget what it was called. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they did it with him.

Nobody smokes over here. We got fuel. We got add tanks over here and this and that Nobody smells like talking to us like we're fucking dirt bags, right? so All right, he walks away 10 minutes later So and I I was kind of joking with the rest of the the extras Now i'm kind of just acting like officer mccarthy chicago pd, right?

Officer mccarthy chicago pd You'll have to extinguish that cigarette. This is a no smoking zone. We have tanks over here, sir I swear to god And just fucking like with this like what the fuck right and he takes a second he puts it down he steps on it And just turns around and walks away Right, and so i'm like, all right. Thank you, sir, and he walks away And I go back over Like three minutes later. Someone says dude You know who that was? Like, I don't know who it's the executive producer of the show He had the 500 overcoat on Sure The dude looked at me like what the fuck Did they have real oxygen tanks? There was some sort of flammable things over there. I don't know what it was There was something flammable. They were like no smoking over here. You gotta tell me you were an extra I watched er religion.

And they go you go like this Dude, I never right and they they dub it in they just you know, it's no it's with fake conversation It's mine, it's fake conversation So i've never ever watched a tv show or a movie the same again I'm, always looking at the extras because the thing is they want to be on camera, right? Yeah, and they're not supposed to look at the camera, right? They're not supposed to do any of it and you're supposed to just act normal But if the camera's panning by you'll always see somebody turn their head, right? Or they'll shift their body, you know, or they'll wave to somebody right always trying to get that air time.

A highlight from ROLLUP: Under Attack - Crypto, Freedom, & Privacy
"Where does this stop, David? Are they going to arrest Tim Berners -Lee, you know, the creator of the internet protocols? How about Netscape, 1994, who designed HTTPS? Remember Marc Andreessen talked about, kind of, Crypto Wars 1 .0 when he came on the podcast? He was talking about the battle there. I mean, are the developers of internet protocols responsible for how North Korea uses the internet in order to do nefarious things that Treasury doesn't want? It's ludicrous, absolutely and I think that if Treasury or ever any government regulator in the U .S. took this type of stance towards communication, we would have no Silicon Valley, we would have no free and open internet based largely in the U .S. today, but we would have none of this innovation and economic GDP growth. It would have been completely squelched. Bankless Nation, it is the last Friday of August. David, what time is it? It's the Bankless Friday Weekly Rollup where we cover the entire weekly news in crypto, which is always an ambitious endeavor, yet we persevere, nonetheless, into the frontier. How you doing, Ryan? I'm doing okay. Just okay, though. You know, this week felt like a gut punch, and we're going to talk about the bad thing that happened this week in the show. There's also some good stuff, but, I mean, getting the bad thing out of the way. Number one, the Department of Justice has arrested Roman Semenov. This is a U .S. developer of tornado cash, an open source privacy developer. This one hurt, David. It feels like crypto continues to be under attack. Privacy and freedom are under attack. It's a big freaking deal, and we're going to spend some time talking about it in the episode. That's the bad stuff, but we got some good stuff, too. What else are we talking about? The arrival of EIP 4844 draws closer. This is, of course, the one that scales up layer twos further than they already have. The friend .tech debate continues. Is it good or bad? Ryan and I did an entire show on that. We will recap it very quickly, but really talk about the big takeaways, which are that it's proof that we are ready to go mainstream. We got a mainnet debut as well. We got an airdrop to talk about and an exploit as well. Just a normal week in crypto. So make sure to like, subscribe, rate and review wherever you get your podcasts. Ryan, I don't know if you've checked recently, but on Apple podcasts, we are about to hit 1000 five star reviews. So this is a call to action for anyone listening to on Bankless on Apple. Give us those five star reviews so we can legitimize the Bankless podcast and get that top of the iTunes investing and business categories. Guys, some of this will be edited out, but maybe stay tuned to the bloopers after the show to see how many times it took David to say 1000. It is hard, though. It's hard to say.
Fresh update on "1994" discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast
"They're 60 year old Circle Jerks. Let's let's move on from this place. Hey Lou, that was probably, that was a fun fact. Lou, I think it was Chuck Scarborough that said that about the Circle Jerks. Remember Chuck Scarborough? Chuck Scarborough used to be, he used to be a newscaster in Boston back in the 70s. What did he do? He's no Tex Antoine, I'll tell you that. He's Ron Burgundy. And what would, did he do something awful? Oh, Chuck Scarborough? No, he just, he's still in New York. He still does New York news. Oh, he didn't get thrown off the air for like a second. No, he just, he does, yeah. But he was named after a popular college ritual, no, no, no. King Crimson reformed in 1994. Yeah. Right? Yeah. And the Eagles. Hey. Yeah. King Crimson broke up in 84 and got back together in 94. That was planned. Was that with Robert, was that with Adrian Blue at that point? No. Yeah. Adrian Blue, when they first reformed, I think was with them, but he had a major falling out with Robert Fripp at some point, but yeah, he was in the band. They did a- I like the period he was in. They did a very heavy album called Thrack. It's some of the heaviest stuff I've ever heard and Bill Bruford's on drums. It's really, but it's good stuff. Yeah. Sorry, we went into music. I'm sorry. We actually deep dove. I'm sorry. We'll never do that again. We can make circle jokes today. Don't listen to Dave Rios, by the way. Dave Rios is one of them. You guys do a little deep dive and I like it, but I don't know what the fuck they're talking about, but I like, don't listen to Dave Rios, Diamond Dave Rios. I think somebody listening should go check out the Thrack album from King Crimson. There's our five minute recommendation. Flack. Music isn't that- Yeah. Hey, Marie Monza. Yeah. It's about music. Yeah. Let's see. Top 10- Not tonight. Top 10 best albums of 1994. Number 10 was Nine Inch Nails and Downward Spiral. Number 9, Soundgarden, Super Unknown. The Monster. Number 8, Blur, Park Life, like I told you, big one. Daz breaks in at number 7 is Illmatic. Number 6, Green Day Dookie. Yeah. I agree. Number 5, Nirvana, MTV, Unplugged in New York, and it wasn't Unplugged. We will always fight that one. Pat Smear on Electric Guitar Ladies. Fucking- Disqualifier. This is a surprise one, although I like them and I like this style of music. Portishead, Dummy is number 4. Number 3 this year in 1990, Weezer with Weezer. Number 2, Oasis, Definitely Maybe. And the number 1 album of top 10 best albums of the year, 1994, TLC, Crazy Sexy Cool. And that was a good album. This was in sales, right? Top 10 albums. All albums have been named Albums of the Year for their hits in the charts. It's a big year for rock and roll. But Crazy Sexy Cool is a monster. Yeah, that's a great album. And they made no money off of it. They made no money off of it. Or maybe that's the one album they started making money off of because they were getting nothing at first. Pebbles was their manager. She signed them to a bad contract. Deaths in 1994. Dan Hartman, I Can Dream About You. Instant replay. Instant replay. He wrote a lot of songs. He was in Edgar Winter's White Trash.

A highlight from Interview: Rebecca McLaughlin
"For many in our culture today, biblical Christianity is a dangerous idea, challenging some of their deepest beliefs. In her book Confronting Christianity, 12 Hard Questions for the World's Largest Religion, Dr. Rebecca McLaughlin explores the hard questions that keep many people from considering faith in Christ. Listen as Dr. Rebecca McLaughlin explores how we can share our faith in a way that is relevant, winsome, and true. The co -founder of Vocable Communications, a firm focused on data and speech, Rebecca McLaughlin has long been drawn to helping individuals tell their stories in the most compelling way possible. Her own story has seen her serve as the vice president of content for the Veritas Forum, going to Oak Hill College to study theology, and earning her PhD in Renaissance Literature at Cambridge. And in April 2019, she released the book Confronting Christianity, 12 Hard Questions for the World's Largest Religion. Rebecca, thank you so much for chatting today. It's great to be here. So I'd love to hear, just kind of right out of the gate, why you released the book now. Why do you think the church and even culture needs this book in this moment? In 1994, the historian Mark Knoll published a book, The Scandal of the Evangelical Mind, in which he made the bold claim that the scandal of the evangelical mind is that there is not much of an evangelical mind. I think since then, if that were true in 1994, I don't think it's true today. God has raised up thousands of Christian professors at some of the top universities in the world in all of the fields that are supposed to have discredited, disproved, or sort of blown apart the Christian faith. And the nine years that I spent at the Veritas Forum, I was able to actually focus on unearthing and so the book is very much an opportunity to showcase their work. I think these guys are the greatest untapped resource of the global church and I guess my attempt in the book was to curate some of their work and insights and I think that's something that's needed today. So you don't think there's a scandal, at least in the way that Knoll put it, in 1994, any more today? I guess today the scandal is that we are not making the most of the evangelical minds that God has raised up. So was there something that, was there kind of a concrete moment where it clicked with you that this book needed to be written or was it kind of over the time of working with Veritas that kind of produced this desire to write this? Yeah, I think there were two streams that came into play and kind of flowed together. So one was, as I say, spending nine years working with these folks and realizing that both in the university and outside, both Christians and non -Christians, there was a massive information gap between what the best Christian minds knew when it came to science or philosophy or history or the arts and what was trickling down to the rest of the world. And in fact, some of the very ideas that were discrediting Christianity on college campuses were ones where Christians were world leaders in those very fields. So there was that stream of feeling like, oh, there's this massive information gap and I don't want to keep this all in my own head. I want to make this accessible to Christians and non -Christians. I think there was another stream which connected up for me personally and maybe connected up with some broader cultural issues, which was when gay marriage was legalized, I felt heartbroken honestly by the ways in which the church was messing up our witness on these questions. So it seemed to me that there were, broadly speaking, two ways people were going. One was saying there were well -meaning Christians who were repenting of the homophobia that they may well have been brought up with and throwing out the authority of the scriptures in the process. And then on the other hand, there were a lot of churches that seemed to be doubling down on a kind of culture wars, them and us mentality, which seemed to me to be sub -biblical and unhelpful and distracted both to those within the church and to our witness to those outside.
Fresh update on "1994" discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast
"Community service had three months worth of Alcoholics Anonymous meetings that she did not give two cents about. After much, she would go and then probably start drinking right afterwards. After a much-riffed incident with the police, she points a fucking shotgun at police and only gets $200 back then. And lived. I mean, I can't think of that. If you pulled the gun, I mean, you know, that's, it's full, and she was drunk. She was a messy drunk. My sister saw them when she, in the early 80s. Oh, this video of her. She was on stage telling everyone to leave. She was yelling at the crowd. Get out of here. Oh, man. Contemporary artist. Sloppy. Very sloppy. Wow. Not the worst in a sloppy female drunk. I'm sorry, women. It's just not, it's just not appealing. I think sloppy drunk, whatever the sex, is pretty bad. Nah, female, it's just something, I just have a higher image of women. I have a higher level, and seeing a sloppy female, it's just always turned me off. I was like, if she could be the most beautiful girl in the world, and if she's a sloppy drunk, I'm like, you gotta go. Yeah. I know I can get the second prettiest woman in the world. So, yeah, I just thought it never was appealing to me. You're married to the prettiest woman in the world. Thank you. Aw, thank you very much. Aw, wow. I feel like Rip Taylor. I told you, every time she walks in the room, that music plays. I'm like, how do you do that? How do you do that? Where's that noise coming from? Let's see. June 9th, this was one of the stories of the year in 1994. Lisa Left Eye Lopez of TLC gets in a domestic dispute with partner André for Moonrisin, sets fire to his shoes. The fire ultimately spreads to the mansion. She put him in the bathtub, and it was a fucking, it was a fiberglass bathtub, right? And she likes his tennis, his sneakers on fire, and then catches on to the, the bathtub catches on fire. Good luck putting that out. Yeah. Burnt the whole mansion down. Yep. Yeah. And totally destroyed it. June 21st, 1994, George Michael loses his legal bid in a London court to be released from his contract with Sony Records. The only one that ever beat Sony Records? Michael Jackson. Yeah. The only one that ever really beat them. Prince had a big problem with them, too. He held out on them. He did, he did well on his own, but Michael Jackson just handed it to them. June 27th, 1994, Arrowsmith becomes the first major band to premiere a new song on the internet. Over 10,000 CompuServe subscribers download the free track headfirst within its first eight days of availability. CompuServe. CompuServe. That's when Arrowsmith was sliding. 10,000 downloads, now that's like, really? Yeah. Really? And it's, each download took two hours. Yeah. Click, click, click, click. Let's see, moving into July, July 12th through the 16th, a yo-yo-a-go-go punk and indie rock festival opens in Olympia, Washington, home of Courtney Love. July 30th, 1994, the Verbi Festival is launched. Also on that day, in keeping with the country's new constitution and the promotion of its native language, Baldova adopts Limba Nostrata as its new national anthem. And, nah, nobody kissed. Suede announces that guitarist Bernard Butler has left the band following a fractious recording sessions. Anyway, August 9th, Peter Maxwell Davies conducts the first performance of his fifth symphony at the Royal Albert Hall in London as part of The Proms. That's a British thing. Let me see.

Machine Head released their first album, Burn My Eyes, which was a big success and becomes Roadrunner Records' best-selling debut album. August 11th, The Compact Disc Company, a compact disc copy of Sting's album Ten Summoner's Tales, released the previous year, and becomes the first item securely purchased over the internet. The CD is sold for $12.48, plus shipping and handling fees. Wow. August 12th through the 14th, Woodstock 94 is held in... I was there. Sugar T's New York. You were? Yeah. As with the original 1969... Did your parents let you go to that, Mark? My father was able to get the tickets for me because he worked in Woodstock. Ah. And he got me the Primo's parking lot, which was only a mile from the field, so we could walk back and forth because the buses stopped pretty quick. As with the original 69 Festival, attendance is swelled by a high number of gate crashes while heavy rains turn the festival grounds into a sea of mud. Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, Aerosmith, Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills, Nash, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Peter Gabriel, and Green Day are among the many performances. That was the mud fight with Green Day, right? They were throwing chunks of sod at them. I wasn't at that. I was at the South Stage, and I think my highlight was Neville Brothers. What a show. Wow. Okay. I probably would have rather have seen the Neville Brothers than Green Day. Me too. But looking at the Green Day shows, it looked like it was fun, though. I think it was a lot of fun. August 23rd, 1994, Jeff Buckley releases his single, critically acclaimed, full length studio album, Grace. There's my regret of the 90s. I didn't listen to him when it came out, and now I'm listening, I'm like, I would have been the biggest fan if I had listened to it then. August 30th, what's that? I don't know. Was that well received when it came out? It was critically acclaimed. It was Elliot Smith, his record that came out that year was not, at the time, wasn't like, there's no big buzz about it. It was only after he died. August 30th, 1994, Oasis releases their debut album, Definitely Maybe. It becomes the fastest selling debut album in the United Kingdom until 2006, when it was beaten by the Octic Monkeys debut album, whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not. Yeah, Definitely Maybe, great album. Great album. Let's see, that's some Latin stuff. That's my favorite Oasis album, by the way. Definitely Maybe? Yeah. Because I bought it on import, reading it in a British magazine, everyone liked it, I didn't hear of them, so I went and I got it, and I'm like, holy shit, it's great. Yeah, it was so different. Yep, yep. September 6th, 1994, Bad Religion released their eighth studio album and proper major label debut, Stranger than Fiction. This proved to be the last feature founding feature, founding guitarist, songwriter, Brett Gurewitz, for seven years until his return. Gurewitz would be replaced by former minor threat, dagnasty junkyard guitarist, Brian Baker, who turned down the touring job with REM at this time, and eventually becomes a permanent member of Bad Religion. Let's see, September 15th, 1994, a 1957 audio tape of John Lennon performing with the Quarrymen on the same night he met Paul McCartney fetches about $80,000 at Sotheby's in London. It should be worth more than that. October 11th, 1994, Korn, a nu metal band from, one of my favorite bands. Seen them six times, seven times. Remember the first time I heard them? Wow. Nu metal, Bakerfield, launches its self-titled debut album. That is a fucking album, man. Oh, yeah. That, you want driving music? Like, that whole album is driving music.

I can't remember the name of the song. Faggot? No, no. Talked about abuse, but it was- Oh, a lot of his lyrics are about that. Yeah. And there's one where he actually cried on the recording, and they didn't play, so he was able to channel it, you know? Yeah. Good for him, man. Yep. You know what? Let me see something. Oh, October 25th, Madonna released Bedtime Stories. That's for Dave. Yeah, yeah. Let's see. Let me look at something for a second here. Just trying to look up their... 1994... I'm trying to look at the... I can't find it. That laptop's working real good, huh? No, I was trying to find the... I went to their wiki page to see the record. Yeah, the song's on the record. Anyway. Let's see. October 12th, Jimmy P. and Robert Plant, no quarter, unleaded, premieres on MTV. The Unplugged Concert Special, featuring the two former Led Zeppelin bandmates, was filmed to accompany the release of the album of the same name. Then they went on a big tour, didn't they? They didn't get to see it. I didn't either. They didn't invite the other guys. They didn't invite the other guy. The other guy. The other guy. Yeah. The drummer wasn't there, Lou. November 20th. Was he doing something else? Was he in another band at that point? Yeah, he's in The Grateful Dead. Yeah. He was in Dead Head. He was the third drummer in The Dead. Yeah. Oh, no.

Oh, wow. November 2nd. December 2nd. We're getting there. December 2nd. Seattle record label Sub Pop. Wasn't that the Nirvana? Yeah. A lot of stuff. Mother Love Bone? No. Mother Love Bone? Sub Pop Interscope or something. And a deal believed to be worth over $30 million. December 18th. My birthday. 1994. Paul Oakenfolds. Great DJ. One of the original, like, star, DJ, you know, stars. Paul Oakenfolds legendary Goa mix, his first broadcast in the early hours of the day as BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. That was December 19th? 18th. 18th. Okay. I'm writing it down because it was your birthday. December 19th, Arrowsmith opens a 250 seat Mama... The 250 seat Mama Kim Music Hall in Boston, owned by the group with a performance by them to open the band. I don't think that thing lasted long. December 31st, end of 1994, the 23rd annual New Year's Rockin' Eve special airs on ABC with appearances by Alyssa Etheridge, who went on to, her wife had David Crosby's baby. That baby was born with a predisposition for many addictions, you know. I mean... The kid still isn't a star, by the way. No, he died. He committed suicide. Did he? Yeah. Oh, wow. Whoa, whoa, whoa. How come I never heard that story? I think he had some addiction problems. 2014? When did he do that? Not too long ago, I don't think. Oh, shit. Maybe I did remember that and I just don't remember it. That doesn't make any sense. Maybe I did remember it and I just don't remember it. What am I, fucking Curly from The Three Stooges? What the fuck was that? In the head with too many lamps, Scott. Yeah, yeah. And so was I. Who was her significant other that was it? Anne Hesh? Yeah, I think so. She came to a grizzly end, too. She did. That was fucked up. Fucking crazy, right? Yeah. It's the video. Someone's fucking... Someone's house. What are they called? You're seeing it happen. You see the fucking car fly by. Like, whoa. Yeah. Going fast. Yeah. And she had some issues, too. So that poor kid never really had a chance. I'm not being funny about that. David Crosby? I mean, at least he might come out ugly. You know? He might come out with that mustache and that weird long hair. And the bozo haircut? And the bozo? Bozo. The bozo haircut? Yeah. My theory is if you have male pattern baldness, do not grow long hair. No. Just shave it. Just take it off. Bring it home. I would do that. I just like long hair. Yeah. So the New Year's Rockin' Eve with the parents is by Melissa Etheridge, the O'Jays, Salt-N-Pepa, Hootie and the Blowfish, and John Sakata. And let me see. That's basically it. Nothing else. Tony Wilson. Oh, and the summer. No, this is for the people that probably know about the Manchester movement, the Madchester. In the summer of 94, Tony Wilson attempts to revive Factory Records. Factory Records was like the record company in Manchester. And they did like the Happy Mondays and they got all, you know. Spiral Carpets. Joy Division. Yeah. He grabbed all those bands. But not the Smiths. He didn't get the Smiths. He tried to revive Factory Records in a collaboration with London Records and called it Factory 2, and it just never really went anywhere. Let's see. Offspring frontman Dexter Holland and bassist Greg Kressel from the label Nitro Records. An incubator for successful punk artists. They started their own label. Social distortion manager. Todd Salkman. Big Social D fan. He was a big fan back then. I always gave that dude credit, man. The lead singer, Mike Ness, I think it is. The tattoos. Way ahead of his time. The neck tattoos and the... Like that dude, he was a rock star too. Still is. They're still around. And so that's what we have there. Yeah. Let's go with bands that formed in 1994. There's a bunch of them. There's a bunch of them. Some of them maybe people didn't hear about, and I threw a couple of bands in here that you've never heard of, but just because of the name, I threw it in there. I looked this shit up, and there's a lot of fucked up names, and you wonder why they didn't make it. I think there's very few really good band names. If you call yourself... I'm just going to say it. If you call yourself the Jizz Drinkers, you're not going to make it. You're just not going to make it. Yeah. Bad advice, bad decisions. Bad decisions ruin that band. You're not going to go on Letterman. No. And the name just right there, you're just dead in the water. Yeah. Yeah. And there's a couple of bad jokes rolling around, but I'm just going to let that go. Anyways. So let's see. Bands formed in 1994. The Basement Jacks. Where's your head at? Never heard of them. Jesus. Todd Sockman saw Social Distortion in 92 in Davis, California. Great concert. Yep. I tell you. Todd is a Social D fan from the beginning. How can I put this? The Pearl Jam ripoff band Creed. Creed was... Can you take me home? That dude Scott Sapp was a total douchebag. Worth my shirt. Total douchebag. He thought he literally was like a god. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. He was the downfall of that band. His ego was way bigger than it should have been. His downfall was for all to see on MTV when he was all drunk. Remember that interview? Yeah. That was great. It's Stapp. What's his name? Stapp. Yeah. Scott Stapp. Scott Stapp. Yeah. The Dandy Warhols. Stapp it, please. The Dandy Warhols. Love them. Love the Dandy Warhols. Very independent band. They did the theme song to... What was the name of that show? Veronica Mars. I loved that show back in the day. The Shades of Veronica Mars or something? Huh? Was it The Shades of Veronica Mars or something? You're thinking of... That was a... The movie. Yeah. What's her name? From Barney and Clyde. Faye Dunaway. Faye Dunaway movie. The Eyes of Laura Mars or something? That's it. Yeah. My God, the professor is off tonight. Yeah. Wow. Or maybe I'm on. I know stuff. Whoa, whoa, whoa. I know stuff. You know stuff. Yeah. It doesn't mean he's off. It means I'm on. You don't have to devalue me. I've been negatively impacted by this. You've triggered some emotions in me. This is like a sports game when a team upsets another team. Did the lesser team win because they were better or the bigger team didn't do it? Okay. You win. I like that. You win, Scott. You win. You win. That's right. That's right. Mark, there's this road and there's this road. You got to pick one. Yes. Pick the one you're going to travel. I'll take this one. There you go. Hey, Lou. When he goes low, we go high, Lou. That's right. Hey, listen. We will take you higher. I know how to talk to drummers. There you go. Let's stop with the pre-reference. Lou wins. Lou wins. Hey, drummer. I'm going to break your sticks. Okay.

Fresh update on "1994" discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast
"I thought it was him. Maybe it was another... Pills and alcohol don't mix well. February 11th, the three surviving members of the Beatles secretly reunite to begin recording additional music for a few of John Lennon's old, unfinished demos presented to Paul McCartney by Yoko Ono, with Jeff Lynn of course producing. The track Free as a Bird is released as a single in late 1995 as part of an exhaustive Beatles anthology project, reaching number two in the UK and number six in the US. Those, that was a good thing. Anthology was great. Yeah, yes it was. So many cool takes of stuff. Let's see. Best version of O'Bloody, O'Blooda, I think. I think that should have been on the album. The right album is the other one they did. I'm starting to get the meat sweats gentlemen. Turn down the temperature in the studio. It's down to 65 and I'm still starting to... For the audience, before the show, I went out to dinner with the beautiful Dr. Veron and I went to this Brazilian radigio and it's endless meat, pecan, beef rib, all sorts of stuff and I ate probably about a pound and a half of meat with mashed potatoes and cheese bread and fried banana and then finished it off with they have this papaya cream. Oh my God. And I'm just like I'm starting to sweat. You got cement in you right now. It's just cement. It's sitting. It's just sitting. Like a giant pound and a half ball of meat. You know those old stock footages of the old construction trucks just dumping cement? That's what I'm thinking right now. Right down the gullet. So I'm starting to get the meat sweats. Because I got home at like a half hour before the podcast. Gonna be a wacky show. Don't start burping. February 14th Valentine's Day, Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia marries Deborah Koons and nobody cared. I care. Mark cares. February 23rd Eddie Van Halen, Chris Isaac and BB King attend the groundbreaking ceremony for the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. It takes place in Paradise, Nevada. I don't know why that's news. It's just another fucking Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. And Bruce Willis wasn't there? One of the most overrated restaurants in the history of America is the fucking Hard Rock Cafe. The food is just junk. You're not missing anything. It's memorabilia that you could see on eBay. Do a virtual tour online. It's just as good. Because you can't touch the shit. So what's the difference? Behind glass or behind a computer screen? Doesn't fucking matter. Just doesn't matter. February 26th the San Remo Music Festival ends with the victory of who cares because it's something that I don't even know about. It's an obscure music festival. Ends in the victory of Aldreino Baldi in the big artist category. The song Passiara. They eat a lot of meat down there. And everybody after the show went to a Brazilian Rhodesia. It ate way too much meat and they all had the meat sweats later on. Is there a band called the Meat Sweats? Yeah, Meat Puppets. Meat Puppets. Who put out an album in 1994. The Meat Puppets. Good one Lou. He's on his game. Because 1994 was a good year Todd. Yeah Todd. Todd. Todd. With one D by the way. I have a brother Todd and he's got two Ds. Most normal Todds have two Ds. You see it right there on the screen. One D. Todd. One D. Sockman. Did he sell a consonant? Let me see. Karen Hurley. I love Karen Hurley. She's my buddy. She's my buddy's wife and I love Karen. She says how does Jim, who's like my brother, know the name of your show? He's probably heard me talk about it more than a few times. Well we have to start the show over. Somebody asked us to. No Dean. That's what you know. You got the alert. Come on buddy. No. He's treating this like it's the King of Facebook show. Well it never really gets off the ground. It's really no beginning no end. It just is. Coming back soon by the way. The King of Facebook livestream I think I'm going to be doing my first show back in a while. It's an out of control livestream. It's really just idiocy and stupidness and I think someone dared me to put a Whopper and a Big Mac together and eat it as one big. Yeah will this be on an early Sunday morning? No no. Coffee with the King is Sunday morning. It's very mellow. That's a tame. No the King of Facebook show is way over the top. It really has no rhyme or reason to it. But yeah I guess I'll be eating, since my blood work is perfect I'll be eating a McWhopper. A Big Mac Whopper. A big McWhopper. At least there's no filet of fish in the middle of that. Also I'll have to do is request it and I guess I'll have to do it. That would be a good idea. Maybe he should put a filet of fish in it. He did. Didn't he do that? I did that with the cheeseburger. The cheeseburger. Yeah. Okay. Anyways. Anyway as Jack would always say, it's not anyway. Selena on March 1st 94 Selena becomes the first Tejano music singer to win a Grammy. That was one hot woman. Selena was a good looking girl. God bless her. God bless her. She was a nice kid who ran into a raving lunatic unfortunately. On March 1st also Dave Phillips says Madonna was big in 94. Okay. Okay. This is true. Thanks. Wow. That's a fucking epiphany. Holy shit Dave Phillips. I'm going to just give him the title of contributor to the show. Madonna was big in 94. Really? She was big in 84 too. I'm going to see what you release that year. Let's see. March 1st 1994 Nirvana plays their final concert in Munich. We know why. What was that? March. March. March. I'm trying to not do that but it just comes up. Let's see on March 1st 1994 the 36th annual Grammy Awards are presented in New York hosted by Gary Shanley. Gary Shanley had one of the funniest stand ups I've ever seen in my life and he didn't swear once. And it was one of the funniest fucking stand ups. It came out around 86. It was so funny. And he just never swore once. Didn't have to. So let's see hosted by Gary Shanley performing the soundtrack from the 92 film The Bodyguard. So this is 94. But the soundtrack from the 1992 film The Bodyguard wins album of the year. Monster album. While its lead single Whitney Houston's cover of I Will Always Love You wins record of the year. The single version of A Whole New World performed by Peeble Bryson and Regina Bell wins song of the year. Tony Braxton, another 90's hardy wins best new artist. All of this is the infamous Frank Sinatra incident. You know what I'm referencing? Frank Sinatra receives the Grammy Legend Award. Sinatra's acceptance speech is cut short. They sent him to commercial while he was still talking. Other artists criticized the producer's decision during the show and Billy Joel takes extra time to perform his song The River of Dreams noting that he is wasting valuable air time. Wow. They disrespected Frank Sinatra. He had somebody killed over that. Someone died over that. What the fuck? It's always the young generation that's like eh. Cut him. Cut him. Huge mistake on their part. Because there was huge blow back. If there was social media back then that show would have got destroyed. It would have been. He only died a couple years after that. Yeah. But Billy Joel good for him. He's like he knows they're not going to cut him off. Right? Because he's big. Frank was over the hill. He'd done his time. And so he decides to burn their time because they were trying to save precious air time. And you know Billy Joel is probably a huge Sinatra fan. As you should be. As you should be. That's right. I have Sinatra Sundays here at the Casa McVera Sunday morning. Oh very cool. I have a picture of my father with his parents. Oh really? Yeah my dad had a nightclub so I guess they were there one night. But Frank was not there. Yeah well. He was off being famous. I guess that's six degrees of separation right there. I guess so yeah. On March 3rd 1994 in Rome, Nirvana's Kurt Cobain collapses into a coma after overdosing on Ropanol and Champagne. And what? Ropanol. R-O-H-Y-P-N-O-L. Ropanol. What the hell does that do? Does it prevent? Let me see. Benzodiazepine. It's Benzodiazepine. Look at me. I'm married to Dr. Vera. Benzodiazepine used to treat severe insomnia and assists with anesthesia. As with other hypnotics has been advised to be prescribed only for short term use by those with chronic insomnia. He mixed that with Champagne and it equals a coma. Champagne. I had a bad experience. Worst hangover I ever had in my life was Champagne. Me too. I drank a bottle of it. I was like 14. I can do it. I was 16. Almost killed me. Let's see. Let's not get into these stories. That's another podcast. Lots of those stories. March 5th 1994 Grace Slick is arrested for pointing a shotgun at police in her Tibberoon California home. March 7th 1994 the United States Supreme Court I could just see her with her face going get away you fuckers. An old hippie. Hey I'm an old hippie. Peace love dove and shotguns. David Crosby. March 7th 1994 the United States Supreme Court decision Campbell vs Acuff Rose Music Inc rules that parody can qualify as fair use. The case was spurred by two live crew releasing a parody of the Roy Orbison hit Oh Pretty Woman I remember that. Without a license from the publishing firm Acuff Rose Music. Acuff. Roy Acuff he was the guy that I think he roped Hank Williams out of money too. I think that's something. And that decision probably saved a weird Yankovic's career. March 8th 1994 Nine Inch Nails released the second studio album The Downward Smile. Great. Loved that album. It would go on to sell 3 million copies and be credited with helping bring industrial rock music into the mainstream. I wanna do you like an animal? You just bleeped yourself. I just bleeped. I don't want to be that crude. Nah you never crude. There's women watching. There's women. I have respect. I got a crew here on an album title. It's a band name. I don't know if you've ever heard of it. It's terrible. Let's see. March 13th 1994 Selena releases her final Spanish album Amor. I'm gonna butcher this. Pro Habido. Pro Habido. I got it. It's production has been delayed because of the launch of Selena's fashion clothing line and boutiques and her Selena Live Tour in support of Live. March 18th Courtney Love calls the police fearing that her husband Nirvana's Kurt Cobain is suicidal. Police confiscate four guns and I don't have a gun. Fucking liar. And I don't have a gun. And he never lived under a bridge either apparently. No. He wasn't a troll. Police confiscate four guns and 25 boxes of ammo from Cobain's home. Which to some of my friends is like that's just in there like Shudra that's Sockdra. I got some friends. That's nothing you're saying. But I know where I'm going during the apocalypse. And then there's people that say you know that is the whole thing when a rock star dies no he was killed. There's all the people that does have all these theories. Yep. Ah let me see. Basis Darryl Jones replaces who? Bill Wyman. That's right. Great basis. Ah let's see. March 22nd Pantera releases Far Beyond Driven which becomes their heaviest album to hit number one in the Billboard 200. The heaviest album. March 30th 1994 Pink Floyd and Barker what would be their last world tour before their breakup? The record breaking tour supports their Division Bell album with the band playing to five million five hundred thousand people in 68 cities engrossing one hundred and eighty six million nine hundred and fifty two thousand five hundred dollars. They could have toured for ten years and made that money every year if they wanted to. Yeah. That's an album with Roger Waters? No. No. Well that's the first one with that. Pink Floyd broke up after the album after well Final Cut. I'm sorry. I had to say that. I had to say that. Division Bell was a great album. It really was. Did it have learning to fly on it? No that was a momentary lapse of reason. Which I used that term a lot when I was a union steward. I was a union steward like federal level for like 18 years and every time someone would get in trouble and I would have to bring they'd have to get called up in front of the man and you know maybe a chief or two and I'd always say people you have to understand this young officer just suffered from a momentary lapse of reason. That's awesome.
A highlight from FULL INTERVIEW - Curtis Sliwa, Founder & CEO of Guardian Angels
"I gotta bring my buddy Curtis Sliwa in here, I guarantee he's got plenty to say about this because I've known Curtis for a long time, of course, years, years of friendship, founder of the Guardian Angels, host on 77WABC in New York City. And Curtis, it's been a long time my friend, good to catch up with you. Before we talk about the lunacy of the two billion dollars being handed out to failed teacher applicants, give me your reaction to this breaking story that President Trump, he says, is about to get indicted and arrested for a third time. Is this going to continue to show him soaring in the polls? Or is this the thing that's going to maybe take him out? Oh, no doubt, Mike, it'll make him the male version of Joan of Arc. They're putting him at the stake, they're trying to burn him and trying to isolate him. But as you know, amongst Trumpers, it just empowers him all the more. And you say, why now? Why the pileup? It started with Alvin Bragg, who won't even arrest and prosecute criminals. It started with that bogus case, the payoff supposedly for dollars for prostitution. And then it's just gotten it's accelerated more and more and more. And we know what it's meant to do. It's meant to put Trump on the sideline. Now, I happen to be one that doesn't want to relive the election in 2020 with Biden or Trump. But if the people want Donald Trump and if they want Joe Biden round two, then this is what they should be given. That's right. The people get to decide. And that's what they're trying to change. They're trying to take it out of the hands of the voters. And it is disgusting. Listen, I'm with you. I'm with whoever the people pick. I'm going to be a Republican supporting broadcaster. But at the end of the day, what we're witnessing to Donald Trump is disgraceful. And think I Americans, you ought to see the angry texts and calls we're getting. You're going to get them, too. And it's infuriating. Equally stunning is the news from New York City. Now, you were a mayoral candidate. You'd have been, by the way, a splendid mayor. It's why I contributed to your campaign. I love who you are and what you represent. I've often told my friends there's about five life stories, books, movies that can be made about the life of Curtis Sliwa, the founder of the Guardian Angels. So you know New York like the back of your hand. Can you please walk us through the funny farm, the insane asylum of New York giving almost $2 billion, making millionaires out of hundreds of people who happen to be black or Hispanic and took the teacher's exam and failed? Please, please shed some light on this crazy story. Well, it's hard for the course and why people continue to exit New York State and New York City in unprecedented numbers. It's the insanity of our elected officials, Governor Kathy Hochum, I call her Hochum, and Eric Adams. I call him the swagger man with no plan, mayor of the illegal aliens who just keeps encouraging illegals to come in. And we, the taxpayers of New York City, have to fund it. So now being dropped on us simultaneously is a lawsuit that none of us were aware of that's been going on since 1994 for about 20 years. You had a series of black and Hispanics who had failed the test to become a teacher in the public school system of New York. It's civil service. It doesn't look at your color. It looks at what was the mark that you got on your test. And they failed. And now all of a sudden, so many years later, rather than continue to fight the good fight and say not a nickel dime a penny, Corporation Council under Eric Adams, swagger man with no plan, has decided, hey, let's just pay it out. And you're going to have $1 .8 billion to be paid out to approximately 5 ,200 black and Hispanics who took the test and failed to qualify to become a New York City teacher. Now you need to know at that time, Mike, there were other black and Hispanics who took the test and passed. And by now they're tenured and they're right about at the point of retiring and going to Florida and enjoying their very generous pension system that they get from the public school system of New York City. So how is it some blacks and Hispanics were able to pass it and others were not, but the ones who couldn't are going to end up making windfall money that you couldn't make in Powerball or Lotto? I mean, this one guy they interviewed is going to get over $2 million. And he was shocked. And of course, he's ecstatic. And he bragged to the New York Post reporter how he failed the test a lot. So I guess failing a lot, the more you fail the test, Curtis, the more you make.
Fresh update on "1994" discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast
"Well, here we are, episode 119. And on this episode, myself in the wrecking tube, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. We'll be talking about the year 1994, in music and movies I think, it's always interesting. So sit back, relax, break out your flannel shirt, your grungy jeans, and enjoy 1994 music. It was an interesting year, so I think you'll enjoy it. More interesting than what Todd Zauchman thinks it is. He thinks it's nothing, so we'll see. The KLFB studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music, enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends, and welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not gonna say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Dlive, Twitch, and X, formerly known as Twitter, and I don't know how many other live platforms. Well, it's gonna be a good show tonight. It's gonna be an interesting show tonight. Yeah, 1994. As I said in the intro, my friend Todd Zauchman just absolutely sent me a text destroying the year 1994. Oh, I just looked up 1994, I don't know what you're gonna talk about, there's a few things and I don't know how you're gonna make a whole show out of it, and good luck with that, because that's how he talks. That's exactly how he talks. I'm just gonna do this, and you know, it's not gonna be a good, blah, blah, blah, blah. That's how he talks. Now, he'll deny that, and you'll never know if that's the way he talks or not. He'll just have to take my word for it. I'm Todd Zauchman, and I don't know about 1994. Well, enough about him. He'll probably be piping in pretty soon, but yeah, 1994, it's a good year. It was a good year for Mark Smith from the Music Rellers Show and Luke Colicchio from the Music Rellers Show. That's for damn sure. It was. What's up, gentlemen? It was a really good year. How you doing? I was just guessing. I figured for 94, listen, we were all younger, so it was better. It was a big year. Hey. So I have to stop right here. Dave Phillips, who's been watching the podcast from pretty much day one, Patty Yossi. Hi, Patty. Good evening. I love you. Dave Phillips, for the last couple of weeks, he's piped in at the end, and he's like, I missed it. Like something's changed. Ah, Tiffany Van Hill. That's my buddy. That's my buddy, Tiffany. She's one of the people that teaches me how to work with horses. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. And she knows what she's talking about. She's modest, but she's very good at what she does. As are all of my friends and teachers, trainers, mentors from The Herd Foundation in Delray Beach, Florida. It's a nonprofit if you're in the mood to donate today. Look them up. Herd Foundation. Give us some money. Nah, I'm not going like that. No. No, we do. We help veterans. We help veterans, and so it's a good cause. But back to Tiffany. Yep. That's my buddy. Good evening. The Herd Foundation teaches us so much. That's right. That's right. Maybe I'll do a Herd Foundation podcast. You should. Since I'm pretty good at it. You're going to have horses on? What's the horse named after the cookie? Huh? Isn't there a horse named after a cookie? What are some of the horses' names? Oh, Fig Newton. Fig Newton. Yeah. Fig Newton. That's my boy. That's my boy. Good looking horse. Yes. Yes, he is. And we have Stitch. Fig Newton is a retired dressage horse, dancing horse, right? Echoes of Echo and the Bunny Men bring on the dancing horses. We have Stitch. He's a retired racehorse. We have Miss America. She's a retired jumper. Then we have two mini horses. We have Cinnamon. She was a cot horse. You know, pulls the kids around. As would be Sammy. Sammy's the one that looks like Kaja Gugu for you people from the 80s. Looks like Lamal. It looks like Lamal from Kaja Gugu. Gotta do. And he was saved from a kill pen. Yeah. But he's a mini, but he thinks he's a Clydesdale. What do they do with horses after that? Is that the proverbial glue factory? All right. You know what? Right away. Penalty box. Oh. He's raining on my parade. I'm in a good mood. Now I'm all bummed out. Thanks. You feel sad for the drummer now. This is going to be a horrible show now. Leave it to the drummer. Right, Mark? Leave it to the drummer. Get out. It's always the drummer's fault. That's right. See, Tiffany says, that does not exist past our gates, Lou. Because nobody wants to talk. Back to the penalty box. Great start to the show. Lou is just in a mood tonight. I think he's been hitting the whistle. What's going to happen? You're going to come back and it's going to be an empty chair. He's very ornery tonight. Right away. He's very ornery. All right. He's filling his oats, as they would say. Yeah. All right. Lou's back. I'm all right. I'm all right. Okay. Enough about horses, although I could now, at this point, talk about horses for two hours. I love it. I love it. But instead, gentlemen, first of all, how's things on the music relish show? You. Take it away, Lou. Sure. It's fine. It was such an awful show. I thought I said the wrong show for a second there. It's been nothing short of amazing. Don't jump over each other to answer that question. It's always fun. Last week was fun. We got knocked down a bit by Warner Brothers because we played a clip of an America song featuring Dan Peake. Yeah. You're going to watch that. Yeah. We talked through the whole thing, but Spotify is much cooler than YouTube. YouTube sucks like that. YouTube, they have a very strong algorithm. They can kiss my rosy red ass over that. That's right. You tell them, Lou. Fuckers. That's right. Get me kicked off YouTube. That's right. Let me see. John Morris, he was our shift commander. When I met him, I was, I think, a two striper, and he was what they called a butterbot. He was a second lieutenant, I believe. He said, tell them stories from the Nipah Hut in the Philippines. That's a big no. That's a whole other podcast, but they would never make it on the air. Just leave it at that. It's like a chain of Nipah Huts? No. It was a bar slash club called the Nipah Hut. Tell one story. No. They had a giant spaceship that would come down from the top. It's kind of like George Clinton in parliament. At the end of the show, this big spaceship came down from the top. Smoke. Like you said, parliament fucking pelican. Then the thing went open, and everyone would walk up and get up on stage, all those drunk GIs. Like, yeah, I'm going in the spaceship, and you go down these stairs, and you're in a fucking basement. I don't think it was a basement. It's like something from a fucking horror movie. How do you get out? And then somebody goes, this way, this way, go, go, go, go. That's the cleanest story I can tell you. It's the cleanest story I can tell you. Sounds like fun. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. I got a story for you off the air one of these days. So okay, music relish show's going good. Excellent. I just wanted to say, Lou brought up, he made the show. His segment on bad love songs. That will go down in history as some of the best podcasting ever. Bad love songs? Really bad love songs. The worst love songs of all time, like in rock. It's a deep vein. Is that something, is that like content I could probably like borrow with Perry Mind? Because I'd love to hear that list someday. We voted him off the board. We're no longer a false triumvirate democracy. Wait a minute. We toppled the AI monarchy. There's three of us on this one. Are you two going to overthrow me too? Are you like rebels? None of those stories you're told, no. They're wrecking too. Instead I'll start calling you the Sandinistas. The hostile takeovers. You go on podcasts just to take them over? Like Amiens took over the White House. Really, yeah. Yeah, we could do that. I would love to. Maybe next week we'll do, we'll take a break from the years and we'll do like a, kind of a jambalaya, you know, of stuff. Like throw some music news in there. We'll do some trivia. Maybe I'll come up with some questions for you guys. You could give us that deep vein of worst love songs ever. And it's funny, we noticed that several of them made everyone's list of worst love songs. So it's got to be universally bad. Okay. If everyone said that, that fucking song. Then there were a couple where I said I liked the song, but Lou and Perry were like, what? I'm always, you know, on the one side. Yeah, the one. When it falls into like that kind of metal, metal category, you have a soft spot. Air metal. Metal ballads. Oh my God. How I grew up. Yeah, yeah. As young as Ron Mark, you didn't have to deal with those 70s ones. Yeah, that's true. I did. This fucking guy. Blah. See what I mean? He's setting the bar high. Remember, this is how he talks. I don't think there's anything good about 1994. Blah. So he talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yeah, well, an American Arnold Schwarzenegger. He talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent. We're going to pass the bar on this one. I am here. Let me see if you can entertain me. 1994. Blah. All right. So let's actually get right into 1994. Yeah. So we'll start on January 19th, 1994. Bryan Adams becomes the first major Western music star to perform in Vietnam since the end of the Vietnam War. Oh, shit. Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, yeah. Wow. On January 21st to February, as it's spelled, the Big Day Out Festival takes place, again, expanding from those previous years. Blah, blah, blah. Auckland, New Zealand. The festival is headlined by Soundgarden, Ramones, and Bjork. Nice. That's an interesting... Probably each night there were headlines. I would love to see Bjork. Me too. I would never want to see the Ramones. They'll never get back together again. Unless they perform in the Pet Sematary. Yeah. Hey, Lou, can you put him in the green room? No, I'd like that one. That's a good one. Come on, there's a little crossover. Put him in the green room. Put him in the green room. Okay, yeah, yeah. Oh, it's going to be a long show. It's going to be a long one tonight. I feel better about myself now. Got a little redemption? The redemption song? Yes. I got a Buffett story for you. Oh, yeah? His one song was The Pirate Looks at 40. He would segue into Bob Marley's redemption song. Oh, jeez. And it didn't quite... Wait a minute. Buddy, that is the quickest way to get to the penalty box. I'm not playing it, though. I know you're not. You're poking the rhino right now. I'm a guitarist. You're poking the rhino right now. You're not a rhino, you're a nice guy. Come on, we went through that last week. And so, as I've been saying each week, I'm just going to say right now, where's Jack? Okay, and we'll move on from that. Hey, Jack. Hey, Jack, please come back. He didn't listen before, so I don't think he's listening now. Let's see. January 25th, Alice in Chains released their Jar of Flies album, which makes its U.S. chart debut at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first ever EP to do that. Right? But they still are always talked about as like number three or number four out of the big four. Big four being? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden. And Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains is never getting that kind of... Whereas... That first album, the record company made them sound like another band. Yeah. And that's not their fault. They were produced that way. Dirt was a great album. Yes, yes. And Layne Staley was one of the greatest frontmen ever. Just as cool as the other side of the pillow, as they say. Yeah. Very unique voice also. Today we were talking about what we were going to talk about in the show. And he goes, when I saw the videos, he goes, I didn't match his face with the way he looked. Right? He said he was expecting like a grungy, more... No, he was slick. He was slick. In the Man in the Box video, he's got the kind of long... But then he changed it up. He slicked the hair back, he wore the shades, you know. Just turned into a... Suzanne McPhail. Another one of my horse people. She's the one that introduced me to that whole thing. And she said, who's Jack? That's right, I guess. At this point. On January 29th, The Supremes' Mary Wilson is injured when her Jeep hits a freeway median and flips over just outside of LA. Wilson's 14-year-old son is killed in the accident. What a good day. Ah, this fucking... I saw this and I was like... Dead horses was a bummer. I know, I know. I saw this and I'm like, there's no way around this. February 1st, Green Day releases their breakthrough album, Dookie. Ushering in the mid-1990s punk revival. Dookie eventually achieves diamond certification. Now, I did like them back then. I actually did. I was stationed in Southern California in Riverside. And I decided to get like a side job. You know, I was in the Air Force. But I was like, I want to make a little more money. I want to do something. So I got a job at a record store. Cool. Was it Spencer's or something? Forget the name of it. Oh, Spencer's. They sold all the trinkets, too. No, no, it wasn't Spencer's then. It was something like that. It was a chain. Hot topic. They sold DVDs, too. FYE. No, it wasn't that. I'll remember it. I was working there when Dookie came out and the fucking whole wall was covered with Dookie CDs and they were flying off the shelves. It had a pretty fresh sound. It was fresh then. And coming off the 80s were kind of slick in a lot of ways, except for some of the real heavy alternative. But to hear a song like that on the radio, that was like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit on mainstream rock radio. Good drummer, too. As a band, whether you like him or not, I think he's really good. Billy Joe Armstrong. Oh, Trey Cool. Trey Cool, yeah. February 7th, Blind Melons lead singer Shannon Poon is forced to leave the American Music Awards ceremony because he is loud and disruptive behavior. Poon is later charged with battery assault, resisting arrest, and destroying a police station telephone. Now, this is the dude that sang, you know, And I don't really care if I sleep all day And he's in the daisy field, so you think he's like this really, like, chill dude. And like, you know, me and the B-girl, man, you know. The B-girl, yes. And the tap-dancing B-girl, and like, I'm just this dude's a fucking lunatic. He was taking substances that made him. Oh, yeah. That was a short career. Was it him that did a duet with Guns N' Roses? What was the video, a song from Guns N' Roses with a video where they're up on like a water tower and they jump into the water or something. I forget what it was called. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they did it with him.
A highlight from Ch Ahn (Encore Continued)
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. Would you consider yourself smart, insightful, precocious, astute, clever, wise, beyond your years, and good at checking a thesaurus for synonyms? Well, then you've come to the right place. Here now is the handsome, attractive, striking, gorgeous, and quite frankly, breathtaking, Eric Mataxas. Continuing my Miracle Monday conversation with Chae Ahn, that's A -H -N. That's a Korean name, isn't it, Chae? Yeah, you're one of the first to really pronounce it correctly, by the way. What do people say? They call me Chae, they call me Ahn. You know, yeah, whatever, yeah, which is fine, whatever. Now, Chae, by the way, doesn't strike me as particularly Korean. Is that Korean? It is Korean, but my whole name is Chae Ho. Aha. But when I came to this country, they thought it was my middle name, and so it was just dropped, and so all my papers, my citizenship is just primarily Chae Ahn, and so. Chae Ho, does anybody call you Chae Ho? My mom did. She did? Yeah, especially when she was mad at me. That's the classic thing, right? All right, so we were talking about this moment in your life that God has supernaturally called you to go all the way across the country with your wife. You have three kids, then you get four kids, and you're telling me that even though you knew God spoke to you to do this miraculously, it was a struggle. So you're saying from 1982 to 1992, you were struggling. Well, we didn't move out until 84 because it just took time to make the transition. And by the way, it wasn't just me. I invited Luengo, his wife, and a few singles and others to come, and so we had around 15, 18 people that were part of the church planting team. And yeah, it was a struggle. 84, I remember after one year not seeing anything happen, I'll be on the floor just prostrated, weeping before God. And I would say, where's the God of revival? You said, come to LA for a great harvest. We're not seeing a harvest. But you see, I believe those 10 years, and I would joke the 80s were from Hades for the 10 worst years, but they were the best years because God was developing character. He was breaking me. You gotta realize I was 28 years old. I was so cocky, and I thought, because everything came easy before, ministry -wise. And just like Joseph, even though he got this incredible vision dream that his family's gonna honor him as a ruler, yet he had to go through the whole Potiphar situation, the prison experience. And so I went through my wilderness experience, but they were great years because I had the privilege to go to Fuller, and because I had nothing else to do. So four years at Fuller, getting my master's and my doctorate, another four years. And I had the privilege to meet Peter Wagner and get mentored by him. And so it was all part of the preparation. So I really believe when it comes to making of a leader, there's that preparation time before you come into convergence. And it's the character development time to be like Jesus. And so that's why Paul says, I exalted my tribulation, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance, perseverance character, and character hope. And hope doesn't disappoint because the love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts through the Holy Spirit. Well, you talk about that. I can relate to that because I had many years of character building and I always joke around, I say, don't you hate that? But it's true. I mean, I don't wanna talk about me right now, but just to say that I know that this happens and it was years of humbling, real humbling, brokenness, difficulty, struggle, never doubted God, but often was thinking, wow, this is not fun. This is not fun. Yeah, and it's just something that I think every believer has to go through. And of course, we never graduate. And so we're being constantly conformed into the image of his own. Hallelujah, that's the name of the game. Okay, so at what point did things begin to turn around for you? Well, really it began in 92 when I quit, I resigned from the church, not because I didn't love the church, but because unfortunately the movement was part of, the church planning movement got caught up in what I would call the discipleship shepherding movement. Oh, I think I know about that. Was that like Derek Prince? Well, I don't wanna mention names, but yeah, there are. Well, let's just give the initials, Derek Prince. Okay. Yes, but they were called the teachers and they were like these amazing teachers. They were great. And by the way, many of them did repent for the wrong teaching because they were talking about authority and we needed spiritual authority because we're all hippies, rebellious and all that. But they took it to an extreme. And so - It became almost cult -like. It almost did. Right. And so, yeah, just controlling. And so here I'm observing this in California as I'm going to Fuller and I'm seeing my whole movement get into this whole other movement. And so I wanted to leave. And so Sue, my wife gets the word, we're to resign and give the church back because they really planted the church. And so we did in 92. I didn't know the backlash I was going to get from our pastors, our leaders. They thought I was betraying them even though I wasn't taking the church. I was not splitting the church. I wasn't trying to, you know, move the church out of the movement. I just basically was going to itinerate as an evangelist. I've never heard that verb. I was going to itinerate. You were going to go out on your own, I think, is what you mean. Yeah, exactly. Do your own thing, man. Do my own thing and not very successfully. And so 93 was the worst year because economically, you know, I have four kids now in Southern California, a mortgage and no salary. And so we had to refinance our house just to survive. But then in 1994, something happened extraordinarily in Toronto. So Toronto outpouring of January 20th, 1994. And at the same time, a lot of people don't know this, but the Holy Spirit fell in Los Angeles with John Wimber. The same spirit of revival that was in Toronto manifested in the Anaheim Vineyard. And we got hit by the power of the Holy Spirit. I felt, Eric, I was born again again. I mean, people, I know there are many people listening. They have no idea what we're talking about. This is hard to explain. I had Randy Clark on this program a few weeks ago. Yeah, I saw it. And he was talking about this. And I didn't even know that he'd been affiliated with the Toronto Blessing as it's called. He was a starter. Why no, I didn't know that. And it's hard. A lot of people get really freaked out by this. They say, this cannot be God. I don't trust it. And a lot of people that I respect a lot, I disagree with them, but they would say that, I just don't believe the Holy Spirit would have people acting out in this way and that way. And they make a lot of sense. I just think ultimately they're missing something. So you, where were you physically? Were you still in the LA area? Sure, yeah, I was in LA and where I got touched was the annual Anaheim Vineyard Healing Conference they have every January. So this is Wimber. John Wimber, he was hosting it. And Francis McNutt was one of the speakers, just great, great speakers. And he begins the conference on a Wednesday night by making the announcement. This is around January 25th. He said, we just got word that one of our churches in Toronto, there's been an unusual visitation of the Holy Spirit. And so he said, the same thing happened to our people this past Sunday. We were sending out all these young people to New Zealand on a short term winter trip. And as we prayed for them, they fell down laughing and they could not stop for over an hour. He said, this is not normal people. This is not normal for our church. So we know something is up. And so what basically what he was saying was fasten your seatbelt because God's on the move. There's another visitation. And of course, John Wimber was the one who brought the third wave that was come Holy Spirit with him and he was one of my professors at Fuller because I took his course, Signs and Wonders in Church Growth. Amazing miracles were being done through the vineyard movement. And of course, Jesus is a healer, but they were being used powerfully in Southern California. And so here I get powerfully touched. I mean, I have never shook, even though I've been born again since 1973, but I got prayed over by Mahesh Shavu who's a dear friend now. And I shook violently for like 20 minutes. You see, this is the kind of thing that I think freaks out some people. And when I was at the Global Awakening here in New York, I saw some people, quote, unquote, manifesting in this way. One thing you can say for sure, it's not the person, it's something going on. So then the question, the logical question becomes, is this demonic or is this God? And that's the only question to try to figure out because anybody who says like, oh, it's made up, whatever, it is not made up, it's something spiritual. Now convinced I'm that it is God. So it could be demonic. But it could be demonic. And this is where you need wisdom. You need people that are really steeped in the scriptures and have walked with God and have discernment. We're gonna go to a break, but I'm just so glad we came to this spot. We're gonna continue the conversation as long as you can hang out. Che Ho An is with us. Che An is with us in the city. I'm so excited. This is a Miracle Monday. I'm just so thrilled to have you. We'll continue the conversation. Folks, you do not wanna go away.
Newt Gingrich: Previewing New Book 'March to the Majority'
"As a playbook, because March of the Majority lays out how we negotiated with Bill Clinton and aroused public opinion, so that we got welfare reform, the largest single conservative reform in our lifetime. We have the largest capital gains tax cut in history, launching an entire extraordinary period of entrepreneurial growth. We cut regulations dramatically, helping small businesses, and we balanced the federal budget for four consecutive years for the only time in your lifetime. So there are a lot of lessons, we didn't do this because we were lucky, we did it because we worked very hard. We learned over 16 a year period, from 1978 to 1994, what worked and what didn't work. And in March, the majority, I'm giving people a chance to learn, in a free society, The what principles are the that work, how do you put together a majority, and then how do you use that majority to get the policy changes you want. That's why I think March the majority is very relevant for today, it's a history book. And do you get the sense that the Republicans in the House, McCarthy and others, are following the game plan pretty much? Well, I certainly think in the negotiations with Biden on debt the ceiling, there's no question that McCarthy outmaneuvered Biden dramatically. Biden thought he was going to get a debt ceiling with no cuts, no reforms. And it turned out that only only one out of every four Americans favored that. One of the projects I work on is called the America's New Majority the next day. and people can see it at americasnewmajorityproject .com. It was clear that only one out of every four Americans favored Biden's new majority.
Operation Rescue Was Shut Down by Pro-Abortion Janet Reno
"You said that Janet Reno, who was the attorney general under Clinton, they were so pro abortion that they decided number one priority shut down operation rescue shut down Randall Terry, and they brought the full force of the federal government to bear. On ending operation, rescue, so that you were forced to shut down in 1994. Yeah. We had, it was sad. I mean, when I look back now, you know, 30 plus years or 30 years later, I was a young man then. I'm a middle aged man now holding on desperately to middle age. But it's a fearful thing when evil controls government. And that's what we're seeing today. When you have a president who, as a candidate, as a candidate, I was in Philadelphia. I oh, you asked me, what have I been doing since then? Well, I've been doing radio. I've been doing television. I've been making movies. I've been writing books. We recently we released a time travel movie. This beard that I'm wearing right now is scruffy. I look scruffy 'cause I'm gonna play a villain in a movie this summer about fentanyl and the drug trade. We've got a time travel movie that's just been released, a second time travel movie. What is the title of that movie? Time boys. Time boys. And it's got over 60 awards.

The Bud Light Mistake
"Guys, the news are just absolutely crazy. There's several things I want to talk about. I want to hit the cultural issues in this hour for sure. I want to talk to you about a 90s butt like commercial. I'm not sure if you guys saw this commercial, but I want to explain to you. I heard a lot of people saying, I should say a lot of people, but there have been some conservatives that have opined and said, listen, it's time to back off of Anheuser Busch. It's time to back away or Anheuser Busch or many of the employees and the executives. They donate, they donate to Republicans. So we shouldn't go after Budweiser, Budweiser that hard. Or but light, Anheuser Busch that hard. And I totally disagree with that sentiment. I think this is the problem with conservatives. I don't think conservatives recognize the importance of the cultural war. I really don't. The culture war is actually actually what endeared me to the conservative movement at first. And then you start learning about other things. Conservatives don't want to talk about abortion. We're scared to talk about abortion. We're scared to talk about males impersonating females and vice versa. We can't be scared to touch on this stuff because the left uses these issues and they use these people to divide us. I'll get into what fired with the House voting down party lines. Passing legislation that are going to, that's going to protect female athletes. That was common sense just a year or two are so a go, and apparently it's not even not anymore. For Democrats, but let me touch on this issue with Bud Light. And then I want to play this old ad for you. That Bud Light had going on. I don't know. In 1994, it was. I ran across this earlier and I can't believe it. And then I remembered the commercial. It's absolutely astonishing to me. But here's what but like, here's the mistake that Bud Light made, all right? They didn't know their audience. They forget who they are audience was. They brought in this woke tick that wanted to re-engineer or remarket the brand. And then they tried to placate once they used the female impersonator and I decided that's what I'm going to call Dylan Mulvaney 'cause I think Dylan Mulvaney is an absolute fake. I think he's a fraud. I think he's a gay guy that likes parading as a young girl because he's making a buttload of money.
Zooming Out on the Recent Turbulence in the Banking Space
"Today, we are catching up on the macro as we had an important moment to understand how the powers that be were feeling in the wake of the last few weeks turbulence in the banking space. Indeed, the world for this FOMC meeting looked very different from where things were last time. At least or especially to the casual observer. Now, consensus had been building for a shift back to a larger 50 basis point hike. In early March Powell attended annual congressional oversight hearings and delivered a Frank assessment of the macro situation. He said, quote, if the totality of the data were to indicate that faster tightening is warranted, we would be prepared to increase the pace of rate hikes. Jobs and CPI data for February had shown some cooling but were beginning to tell the story of sticky high inflation. Interpreting this as guidance that a reacceleration in rate hikes was in the cards, markets quickly adjusted. Pricing in a 78 percent chance that the fed would deliver a 50 basis point hike. Just days later, however, when the bank run at Silicon Valley was in full swing, the odds of a faster height collapsed entirely. Some market participants began to price in a chance that the fed would pause rate hikes with the probability peaking at 45% at the height of the panic. On Tuesday night of this week heading into the FOMC meeting, however, markets had priced a 73% chance of a 25 basis point hike, with the remaining probability assigned to a rate pause. Importantly, while this might sound like a strong consensus, that's actually the most uncertain market position in recent fed history. The fed almost always follows the market, but with a major economic shock occurring so close to a fed meeting, it was hard to know how the FOMC would weigh volatile market pricing. Jim Bianco actually outlined this in an excellent Twitter thread earlier in the week. He shared that the only example of the fed going against market consensus in the post 1994 forward guidance era was in September 2008. Bear Stearns had collapsed in March leading to large rate cuts, but by June policy had stabilized. That Lehman Brothers filed for bankruptcy, the day before the FOMC meeting, and markets scrambled to price in a 68% chance of a rate cut, where they had previously been signaling the expectation of no move. Fed chairman Ben Bernanke ignored this repricing of policy and health rates steady. Three weeks later, however, the FOMC would hold an emergency meeting to deliver a 50 basis point rate cut as markets rapidly deteriorated.
If You Believe the U.S. Should Have Allies, You're a Liberal
"So I learned something new That if you believe that America should remain the number one superpower That we should have allies That the allies and we should work together to defend ourselves against the communist Chinese or the fascistic Russians or the islamo Nazi regime in Tehran or the inbred and in North Korea then you're a liberal I just learned this And I scratched my head I said wait a minute You're liberal Unless you support unilateral withdraw Unless you oppose pose Providing 8 in support to an ally after you sign an agreement with them in 1994 that you would Should they give up basically their defenses Unless you can turn the other cheek while people are being slaughtered in mass graves and executed and raped At levels we haven't seen since World War II You're a liberal Wow really Yes You're a liberal You're not even a neocon Wow But you're obviously a warmonger unless you allow people to be slaughtered unless you unless you turn the other cheek when there's genocide when little kids and women are being slaughtered and thrown in the mask graves unless you pretend that a hostile regime is threatening you with nuclear weapons and is knocking out your drones which are an international airspace unless you pretend all that stuff's not happening you're a warmonger
Jerome Powell Brings the Dog and Pony Show to DC
"Today we are using the occasion of fed chair Jerome Powell, semi annual report to the Senate about the state of monetary policy to check in with where things are in the macro realm. It's been an interesting few months where there has been so much crypto specific chaos that has been easy to lose sight of the fact that we are all ultimately in a risk sector that is caught up in the larger macro machinations. Now, the last time Powell testified before Congress was in June of last year. Annualized inflation was at its peak above 9%, a 40 year high, and the fed was just three meetings into what would become the fastest tightening cycle on record. The fed discount rate was at 1.75 percent, and the previous week at the June FOMC meeting, Powell had delivered the first in a string of four gigantic 75 basis point raises. Each of those represented the largest rate hike increment seen since 1994. The tone in Congress at that time was incredulous. Democrats were concerned that accelerated rate hikes would tip the economy into a sharp recession with massive unemployment. Republicans for their part took the opportunity to excoriate the fed chair for moving too slowly when inflation had begun to get out of control in late 2021. Both sides of the aisle were openly doubtful that the fed had the tools to tame inflation. Since then, inflation has come down dramatically, clocking in at 6.4% for January, and recording 7 straight months of reductions at headline inflation. The fed has taken rates all the way up to 4.75%, and forecasts that they are not yet considering an end to this hiking cycle. Now when it comes to this particular conversation on the hill right out of the gate, it was a political endeavor. Not that you'd ever really expect that it wouldn't be. Still, the talking points around inflation have clearly become more crystallized on each side of the aisle in the last year since Powell spoke to the Senate. This really showed right from the opening statements. sharad Brown, a Democrat, introduced the hearing with a long kind of weird rambling speech about increased corporate pricing power being the true driver of current inflation. He said quote, the broadening of inflation beyond commodity prices is more profit margin expansion than wage cost pressure. Brown raised concerns about the potential for fed policy to crush the working population with increased unemployment without actually addressing the root cause of inflation.
Jimmy Carter Enters Hospice Care
"David Z Wagner is a friend of mine in Cleveland. And since it's president's day, I want to read you an email. He said to me yesterday. I hear I've met president Carter and spoken with him and continue to be an active contributor to his charity. What needs to search far and wide to find a more compassionate hardworking knowledgeable and kind person, the hands on billing rookie champion, the work with Guinea worm disease, and the active charitable leadership he provided to many causes is very impressive. His recovery from brain cancer years ago is amazing. Most importantly, his personal negotiations in relentless pursuit of a peace treaty between Egypt and Israel stands alone is one of the greatest achievements in diplomacy over the past 50 years. Yes, he was a poor president, surrounded by the inept and the press used Billy as their pinata daily. One of the most rebound, one of the many rebound presidents. We have elected who struggled mightily in office, and then did well in post presidency years. All Americans should pause and pay their respects to the man Jimmy Carter and his achievements. I trust you can help inform your audience in these contentious times as to the man in the humanitarian he is and the good he did for many, many people worldwide, David Wagner. David is a 100% correct. And the honor of interviewing former president Carter on a book tour when he made to LA in 1994 when I was hosting the nightly news and public affairs show there for PBS life and times were trans for a decade and he was gentle he was wonderful. He was terrific in the post presidency years. He did what HW and W have done, which has raised money for a lot of people do a lot of good things for a lot of people spend time with your family. And now you've made some missteps in this book, but not perfect. You've gone partisan, like human rights policy during 77 to 81 when he was president just occasional faceplant, but the man is a legend for helping the homeless, building houses, habitat free humanity. He's a good man. And I salute him and pray for him and for his family as he enters hospice care this president's day.
Former state adviser named in NH youth center abuse lawsuits
"Someone thousand people say they experienced physical or sexual abuse at a youth detention center in Manchester, New Hampshire. 20 people accused David ball, who retired from the senior youth services center as chief of operations in 2014, but continued to advise the state on juvenile justice matters until 2021, one woman says that when she was incarcerated at age 14 in 1993, ball raped and choked her dozens of times, and sometimes while she was in a straight jacket, ball is now 76, and he denies the abuse and says he has not been questioned by police, 11 former workers have been charged with either sexually assaulting or acting as accomplices to the assault of more than a dozen teenagers between 1994 and 2007.

Mark Houck Joins Charlie to Discuss His Recent Trial
"Recently had your trial. It seems as if this was a very quick timeline between the raid and the trial and so was there a reason for that? That's a good question. I think, you know, you look some of these things up. Whenever there's a minor involved in a trial like this, they try to expedite it so that the child isn't further traumatized. No one communicated to me that that was the reason we were just first up, couldn't believe it was four months after the yeah, it's super quick. Yeah, yeah, it was quick. You look at David the lightest case and he's still in court and waiting his trial for many things and it's been years. So you just recently had your trial and they were, this is the federal government, right? So there was a fair to say there was a federal prosecutor that was arguing to try to put you in jail. What law were they alleging that you broke? So I was charged with allegedly violating the face act, which is in 1994, federal law that was enacted sponsored by the late center Ted Kennedy and Chuck Schumer. And basically it was designed in the 1990s to deal with pro lifers who were performing public sit ins and civil disobedience called the rescue movement. And they effectively did that under Bill Clinton's administration. It has been resurrected to come after pro lifers, basically they act stands for federal access to clinic entrances and it protects those acronyms. It protects those that are coming into in and out of an abortion facility or even protects those trying to get into a pregnancy resource center, believe it or not. In this case, it's being applied widely to against pro lifers and not being adequately or equally applied to the violations against people with intent to go to pregnancy resource centers or violence against pregnancy resource centers. But in this case, it was applied to me.

"See, you have to understand our history. First of all, we are the party that embraced the first black, the first black congressman. And senators, during the reconstruction, we need to claim that we need to talk about that. We are the party that fought against the KKK. We are the party that fought against civil rights are fought for civil rights of others for a century before the Democrat party decided under LGB LBJ that it was expedient for them to do so. And then they had to lie about it in order to try to frame the Republicans and cause this identity crisis amongst voters in the ether if you will. And they said there was this big switch when there never was a big switch. You're talking about run one Republican senator that switched to the Democrat party 20 plus remained with the Democrat party and we didn't win the house until the gingrich revolution in 1994. So there never was a big switch, but the problem is Republicans have an identity crisis. And what I will do is go through unfortunately Mitch McConnell is the face of the Republican Party right now in woof. What a bad face to have as, you know, if you're gonna be the face of the Republican Party, but beyond that, this is a guy by and large that is not a conservative.
Caller: The U.S. Is Completely Ignoring the Budapest Memorandum
"First I'm a first generation American of Latvian immigrants So this is really hitting me hard And my question really my observation is I don't understand why the U.S. is completely ignoring the Budapest memorandum from 1994 In the UK and Russia signed on to the memorandum to agree to not threaten using military force economic coercion against Ukraine in exchange for them given up their nukes It's part of history and it's a great point because I said this actually is the day to somebody If I'm a smaller country and have nuclear weapons I don't give a crap what you say I'm not giving them up Because I don't trust America I don't trust any of these NATO I don't trust anybody to get my back And I can give you just look at where we are You know the other thing is is I don't trust that the guy I'm making the deal with it's going to be around to enforce the deal later on which is exactly where Ukraine is right now I would argue that Ukraine wouldn't be invaded right now if they still had their nuclear weapons Absolutely And we promised Ukraine People need to understand this right And this is the reason why they wanted a NATO so badly Because if you fight one NATO in theory it's on paper whether that paper means anything at this point anymore I don't know right But NATO if you remember of NATO and you go into NATO country all of NATO comes to protect you That's part of the reason why Vladimir Putin didn't want them to become a member of NATO It's also one of the reasons why many people didn't want Ukraine to become a NATO country because we didn't want to have to defend them If Russia decided to invade Ukraine

"1994 when he was a senator, comparing the situation in Haiti to the then ongoing Bosnian war, in which he said somebody the effective you call it a God awful thing to save lives in Haiti can sink into the Caribbean Sea or rise 300 ft in the air. It wouldn't matter to American interests. Does he stand by that view today, or has he changed his view on? Well, I would say first, the fact that he is now sitting as president of the United States. He issued a statement in his voice yesterday about the horrific killing of the president. And he has made clear to the administration administration officials that we are stand ready to assist in any way they need. Whether it's in the investigation or other federal assistance we can offer from here sends you a clear message about his care and concern for the people of Haiti. So basically, they said to the leader of Haiti, they said, We got the covid vaccine for you, and he'd say not to want it. So they send some dudes down to kill him. And then the dude that's like in George now, they said. We got the Covid vaccine for you. He said. Please, Please let us have it all. I'm going to assume that that is what happened until someone could prove it's not what happened. That's the conspiracy. Part of it, isn't it? You are so woke Walton and Johnson Radio Network. Everybody has been emailing me and calling me and telling me we were right, the coolest luxury resort in Southeast Texas USA RV resorts. If you don't know about it, you should probably find out about it. And that's their website USA RV resorts dot com. Once you look at the site, see the pictures and read the stories and stuff, you're gonna be begging to go and live there. Just imagine it's a luxury resort, but R V's are encouraged there. You don't have to have an RV. They also have really nice high end cabins and right now for only 4 95. Month. You could be staying at USA RV resorts. Plus you get an extra 10% off If you're a Walton and Johnson listener, it's my way better idea than getting a hotel room or renting an apartment. If you need to work in that area because they happen to have put the resorts in the areas where people come here to work. Oh, yeah, This is particularly good for people in oil and gas, or just people that are going on a fishing trip over.

Barry has that I bet you can buy it for 15. 99 on Kindle. If you're so inclined, my favorite review Wonderful but quite dry. In part, I'm sure, huh? Uh, Amazon like public in 1999. So stocks when they first came out 18 bucks now, 3700. Wow, Here's a number that will make us all a little sad. If you invested $100 in Amazon way back, then today that would be worth 223,000. 100 bucks. That's it. That's it. All right, let's jump forward 2000 and two. That was the first year that Amazon was profitable. So they got through. If you remember kind of a big deal, nineties bubble burst. They got through that cool turned a profit in 2000 and two 2000 and five is when Amazon prime started and now there are 200 million of us with Amazon Prime accounts. Well, we have about a minute and a half left. Okay, well, then, let's touch on the big ones. 2007 is when the Kindle came out. Alexa made her debut in 2013. Can you believe that? Alexis, Eight already know they grow up so fast 2014 as the fire TV stick. Of course, it's not all fun.

That is not good PR. And then recently we've got that Amazon flex driver situation so people are being rated and fired by an algorithm. No, that's fascinating to me, So you know, and they're trying to unionize all throughout the century, but it's but you know the flex drivers. Some of them are Amazon employees. Some of them aren't yes, and for the most part, they're not. And so if you miss the delivery, whether it's traffic you can't get in the building. Whatever it is not your fault. Well, an algorithm is going to come in. Well, The algorithm, I think is fascinating. Is that what they're coming up with real quick? Is that based upon your purchases, you know they already have subscription. Right, But now based upon your purchases, they're just gonna drop stuff off. And if you don't want it, then you can send it back. Really? Yes. Like my grocery idea. Yes, exactly. Exactly.

"And she just says you know I know that oliver north has a great deal of trouble. Separating fact from fantasy he lied to my husband. He lied about my husband. She's madda fan and she does not endorse him. I think that hit Really caused an election that was somewhat close and maybe could have gotten him. A victory sorta sealed the deal on him not winning. You see the fracture and the republican party between the establishment which is now like reunites And this more fringy conservative movement. That are coming into conflict in this moment. Yeah and especially know nancy. Reagan says something like that ten days before the election. It's really important to keep in mind that if you're a republican who was swayed by that you don't have to sway all the way over to voting for chuck robb democrat because there's marshall coleman who's a former republican sitting there as the independent. He's the one who picks up eleven percent of the vote. I know it's always really hard to speculate about. How much of that. Vote would have gone to north but rob beats north by three points and the independent gets eleven points. So you know. There's a good chance that that that was a really big factor. That's a huge percentage for independent. So those those numbers do add up and they do wind up taking away From a potential victory when you when you realize that it's such close us such close margin and we should say that oliver north loses the senate race but he doesn't necessarily lose in the big picture because what he takes out of this senate race you know. He raises something like twenty million dollars from primarily direct mail and he takes that mailing lists and continues to fundraise off of it after the senate campaign he starts his own conservative. Talk radio show. You know many years down the line he will become the president of the nra so he he remains a fixture in the conservative movement. Long after this senate race so he still exerts quite a lot of influence even though he is not in the senate so on that point and as we start to wrap up. I mean you know are there. How does make you think about this moment. Now in terms of people who just you know even if their exit from politics has is a little tarnished And i think a lot of people in the trump administration. You can say that about them. they stick around and they you know when you have a certain level of name recognition..

"Drafting off of gone. Rogue was not the reason that he had to testify before a phrase lost. I i see what you're saying but in some ways you know. I think people link very much the military and the political machine so the fact that he has this long career in the military doesn't quite make him the outsider that he is is positioned himself to be in some ways. I think he's very much an insider because he's you know he went to west point and from then on he sort of has always had his. You know hand in some sort of military Circle now. So i grew up in the dc area and this was like very early in my sort of just being aware of of local politics and stuff. The only thing. I remember from this race going on. Is that some of the bumper stickers that you'd see on cars if you were driving around did not say chuck robb's name they instead just said south and i always thought that was very clever. Maybe a little high. But yeah so. You'd see these north things a bunch of cars with side clever branding and this campaign did get a little dirty in that way and actually you know there was up. There's a film documentary film Pbs spat pov series. There was a documentary about this race called perfect candidate and I watched a little bit of that. And i also watch an interview with filmmakers on on charlie rose and they talked a little bit about to put this in context about just a couple of years earlier right that film. The war room about the ninety two bill clinton election came out. We did a group watch that last year And in that film you can kind of think of like james carville george. Stephanopoulos is like the angel devil sitting on the shoulders of modern politics. Or whatever you know stephanopoulos still has a little bit of that like dough. I like You know speak to everyone inspire. Everyone and carville is like very cynical fracture. The electorate just do what it takes and they talked about how ninety four you know the carville vision had basically one campaign was entirely just about like get oliver north out there. There's no such thing as bad press you know. We don't care if the news is bad. We don't into just like win. Each new cycle be pugilist. Thick break-up the electorate And again i think just as an extremely ninety four moment. Another factor here is that you know charles robb. Who is the son-in-law of former president lyndon b johnson also sorta has a You know some some Past mistakes he admitted to extra mural affairs he also had some other morally questionable behavior But that doesn't cancel him and you know the fact that he is able to get reelected. I think says something about how people are able to recover From mistakes made especially when they're honest about them though that also makes me really think of this as a very modern type of election in the sense that you can run to very very unpopular candidates against each other and they will eat into each other and you know as long as your tribe is on board. That's all that matters and we saw obviously like in two thousand sixteen. We saw the two least popular candidates in history running up against each other. And you know someone's going to win but it's interesting how you know one woman sort of takes down. What does nancy reagan. Nancy reagan like pushes back on Oliver north in a way. That i still think has a lot of sway with voters at the time..

And we'll see what happens anyway. Let's let's move on and talk about oliver north so we should do a little of north history. Kelly i mean. Do you wanna start there. Just lake the second acts idea like people. Just keep coming around. Yeah i mean a so. So even though oliver north really has this sketchy problematic passed within the military and within the legal world interesting. Because he's beloved by the right. He certainly beloved by the christian right. People love him in the evangelical movement which is also. It's you know well. It's already at height but the fact that you know. He is one of their heroes. I think motivates him and a lot of ways to say. Hey i've got fans. I've got people that will vote for me. That want me in this political position and he thinks that he can really thwart the establishment by running on a platform. That will sort of push back on. All these ideas that he finds. You know it'd be problematic and and push back on the clinton administration and take his political aspirations to a whole new level. Yeah we should get to that because there is a little like the swampy nece to his message year which is very interesting. Given i think in our own country you could say like he was the swamp. But you know there's echoes for today something you said there's really interesting actually which is You know he's beloved in certain circles and you know at first glance you look at the store and you think oh. There's this eight year gap and maybe people forget and north's reputations rehabilitated. But i think what you're getting at a nicky. Tell me if you agree here. But it's there's actually. I think a lot of people saw north's role in iran-contra and hemant those hearings people on the left saw that as you know here's this guy talking about all these awful things that went down. But some people saw that as heroic and define and he was the good soldier. So there's a little bit of rehabilitating his reputation but also just capturing and continuing what some people saw as admirable or at least you know reasonable behavior. Yeah i mean on the right ollie. North was a hero from nineteen eighty-seven on he was the one who was willing to do what needed to be done. The scene from a few good men. Who in colonel jessup is like. I'm the one on the wall. He was the one on the wall and conservatives loved that and it opens up this really interesting rift. Because you know who didn't love it. Ronald reagan ronald reagan. Really did not like oliver north. And so you have this conservative movement. Where reagan in one thousand ninety-four. He's leaving the political scene. He makes Known his alzheimer diagnosis. And he retires from politics. And here you have. Ollie north Who reagan despises and actually ends up coming out against and the conservative movement doesn't care what reagan says in this moment they embrace north So let's talk about the way this race plays out a little bit. We're marking here. The moment when he wins the republican primary We should say that he goes on..

Children were In studies that i had seen them dressed but it totally didn't give me that pedophile type of feel it gave me the whole. I'm their god and they worship me. And they protect their job is to be you know to be my new bodyguards. They'll be my new whatever you wanna call it. But if you know your history. He was blotted like kit. Cleopatra arrived in rome on a chair carried by her people. that's how she arrived in rome to caesar because she said i will not step foot in rome Without leaving on egyptian soil so she brought herself on a chair from with her own soil on it as she arrived on a boat with her own soil but so she technically didn't leave egyptian land but when she was carried through the city she was carried on her own thrown by her people. And that's how he was broad. Yeah that's interesting. I mean. I've seen that scene. I remember the scene but yeah that's very really cool exhilaration. Because i i got that from there. If you've ever seen cleopatra done by the great elizabeth taylor you they really bring out that scene and If i find the clip i'll have to send it to you guys so you know then you'll go awe ink is. It is soon as i saw that i was like. Oh cleopatra all over again all over again but yes it was. A patron was brought into rome. Her golden chair with caesar's child. We'll see caesar's giles if more catholic. Well yeah you're probably correct me. I was probably monitoring anthony No i thought it was caesar. See i. It's been a long time since i read my lips in history but still. She had him there with him with ourself on the chair. So there you go so fast forward in his movie we we go to depart. Were they go back to deep. I guess i have to go back slightly to where were the soldiers were in there and when the pyramid came in then dynamic pyramid They were all taken. I like to say the world taking hostage because in every scene that i saw them being taken down they were just been hit by the blazer looking rifle instead of.

"'cause i had the same thought too. Although the one very appearance. I think i i am with you in here. I thought it was a younger. The younger one of the two but it wasn't even when even when the her name was called out which you imagine it would be bad. They never showed the face of the person calling. So you never even get that. So yeah i was. I was thinking the same thing too. I mean were you know some parts on really cold you the certain parts. Apparently we got out the same part. Did you notice up artem. Did he called you or did you just completely team. That he went over me really. Tim didn't hear like a critical point on the story in any notice. Sometimes in some of the episodes that we record there's a scene to cold you out and he doesn't call me true. So that's why i asked you know i just wanna make sure but yes so going back to the complete betas. I mean if for me that scene when he's just doing all this in the blackboard is kinda like the equivalent of seen an action star just killing twenty people. You know. I don't know if that makes any sense but as the understand. Yeah no i. I see what you're going with that hit with with him and his knowledge of everything absolutely so he's He's at this point. He said he's he knows. I guess we learned the name of the movie stargate. it was going to be stairway to heaven..

"This is a fun song for time. And basically doing like his alex licensing plays are juice all over the place and then doug his plan the baseline underneath images like guiding the song even worse anyway let will rivi is doing right there that we in that even has a different texture. Think about it now that i put this in perspective of of what you're talking about. That's even the sound some lonesome sadder absolutely absolutely women your despair in that when we get to the chorus. We're talking about the other person. This is the big loud angry. If you will the huge one right. Like i don't why i have to say You have known each other for a long time and we've doing this podcast for but it's very unusual that i ever catch something the lyrics that you don't normally the guitar guy near the league perspective. I've been listening this for a long time. So obviously my opinion is probably wrong. Pinkett like kick the door down a second gunman you totally got the song wrong. But that's always how i thought of i. I think doug is a guy that he would. I think he would appreciate that kind of introspective. Be open to what this could be. You know. I think it probably someone like him. Who is who is that. High minded that the possibility. Oh i could see where they were coming from. Where a road. But it's this kind of this kind of the clouds. Like sound david gilmour type. Sound up here that will and and this is something that they've done on the albums going all the way back to the first album. They will occasionally have song. Please up the first album or there's just this long random guitar in that fades out which of course mana hit a fade out. Hey we had to. Which is to too many. As far as i'm concerned okay. So this is the shortest song on the album. This is called. go to hell love this. This is like a punk almost like huge big punk thing just like thrash it out and get out to vote. What did they wanted. Therefore that kinda there was yet above the lyrics. If you can't hear them. I don't wanna go to hell. Nobody in their right mind wants to but very few than the right thing they have to to get to the promised land man. That's like toiletry of yeah absolutely system his tongue in cheek or the weapons themselves. I don't think they're having some fun with it.

"And that's not to say riveta just how deep in heavy i sounds when my favorite bands of all time i mean comments. He owned douglas. An older guy came out of kim near forty at this point. right yeah. He was easily ten fifteen years older than all the other. Guys i mean he's in his seventies now he had a quote I wish i printed out. I was reading. Well he was talking about talking to chris cornell because they recording super soured and was the same time in the he and chris given each other a hard time about the fact that they always like sinks allowed and that they were going to try and like bring down a little bit not always push the envelope so much on their next two albums right first of all. That's interesting but second about can you imagine how cool it is that you had a conversation with chris cornell about not pushing your vocals too hard on your next album. That's amazing because that guy has the best rock and roll voice ever and he goes to. It goes to show what influenced at king's x had on chris cornell who is the greatest vocalist our genera without question Ever that mutual respect. I mean you don't know if you don king's x realize as these guys were playing in the space with their peers in their peers loved them and respected them. That's important they were. I have a quote. Doug said that he was doing this. Really low tune song and he the melody on top of it and that was in the middle of deep kind of depression and a midlife crisis he was trying to figure things out any card out in the song in this was how he was feeling and so this happened to be his five favorite trophy. Mix with this place. He was that were in live. Where everything's pivoted from this. Wow that's really cool. Just it all just happened to hit just right. I can do that. The who has i could do. That would be my only complaint here. I don't like the who is at the time was probably it was bad ass. Yeah the hood doesn't stand the test of time for me. Hey if that's the only complaint you got about the song that much of complaints marching. Who is i'm okay. I live without the who i can deal with. The who is though. I'll take him. I can live without there. No doodoo all. i'm saying. Thank god for that. I'm with. You would rather have a who over at newton any day of the porsche on a day of the week over sean on knob not to to do you got you need help. Our this is you. This is another one of my favorite album. So this song to me has. We were talking about earlier. About like their struggle with The music producers and people leading through and everything and this song has seemingly like a really obvious like religious spiritual overtones to it. But i have always taken it as he talking about that guy. He's talking about sam taylor. This guy came to me. And i've tried to listen. I tried to do what he told me and he told me. Nobody else is ever going to be your friend. He announced they're all everybody else is going to try and fool you. It's just me. I'm the guy because it's so bittersweet about relationship. Do you think he was the whole walk in the big parade. And you know if you do what i tell you. You're going to get to play with the big ways. It's going to be fine. You think he was led on like he felt like he was. He was led to place kind of abandoned because even sailor he talks about this point they weren't really focusing on king's x because they've moved on right. Yeah well i think kings x felt like that he has led them in a lot of directions and then just kind of dropped them. You know it's like they.

"On there right so it's not just it's just it's a particular kind of attitude in a time and a place that really kinda puts you into that bucket. Yeah you're right it was. It was still actually. It was kinda heavy. You know big big to four beats Lots of guitar was like distorted guitar. You take the musicianship that pearl jam had and changed the clothes in the singing style and the composition and those guys could fit right in the eighties because they were really really good at soundgarden. I mean those well actually there louder than love it right in with everything else on the radio homegrown right here. Pants hero was a dallas dallas ban. Those guys started off as a glam rock now now when they morphed this is where the split happened where you had that punk in that indian that alternative feel. That's where grunge kind of took its. Its turn i. Because they weren't folks. The guys in the heavy metal in the ninety s. They went this really weird way where he was like industrial and right like just kind of weird right. Yeah now that that's a good point. A neither one was really derivative of the of the other. But they both were born from the same like evolution's visionary pressure and there's like this zeitgeist in the early nineties with you know it's combat boots and flannel and a lot of that is you know. Obviously what's coming out of the music scene but they're just. There's an overall Rebellion against the theatrical costumes and stupidity of an eighties. It's always effort. Every single you go back to the sixties and the way the sixties happened a look beatles right when they first started it was a lot of effort and then what happened to the beatles is they like morphed into like hippies right so there was no effort Same thing with like david bowie. When he first started off there was like tons of effort and You know just like with the makeup. And he's this creature from outer space and then he started right. Yeah the thin white duke. Just like cocaine fueled then. He's just wearing a suit and looking like every other asshole new early. Yeah and so like music. Popular music always goes from full effort to zero effort so everything's everything's pendulum back and forth right. So so you have hippy. Music and then you have disco music and then you have pumped music which is no effort that you have eighty s glam which is full effort for glam. You'd have grant which was no effort. Okay no effort on the image thing. I'll give you that right but musically i. I think there's a point they were. They were good musicians. But i just made as far as just the the the the appearance. The the appeal in the thing is that once grunge became effort. Did you know people were like literally going out. And spending a hundred and fifty dollars for martin's then grunge lost its up hill. And what happened to him and i. We got hip hop nineties. Which you but then you get the same thing that happens with every genre which is eventually they signed everybody that looks like whoever's popular at the point i forget who it was said this but they're like. It was one of the early nineties seattle musicians and everybody's trying to mimic the flannel shirts and combat boots but like literally. That's all they have at the thrift stores where we all wear this shit and play guitar all day. We don't jobs thrift stores. We all look the same because we shop at the stores once we get to that point where grunge became the everything when you head bands like days of the new while. Only we're trying to do is just pearl jam. I'm sure absolutely yet smashing pumpkins started. I in you had Superman's did what was that bow. what is the name of on banned yet. There is that. I think i mean they were just copying billy corgan right exactly copying this well. Here's the thing that i'm trying to get to this big long conversation about. Did we take a. Yeah but way there i knew you were going and this their inspiration there because jeff of pearl jam one of the architects of the one of the three supernova grunge albums that i talk about he says that king's x created the grunge slang and he does he absolutely loves kings. He massive fan. It's so you will not find a bigger musician. Who is a bigger fan of another band. I think we're we're talking pearl jam. Yeah who who. Who one of the architects of grunge. They're saying that this band not from seattle not involved in this wave of nirvana whatever. This bit this weird trio with a nine foot black dude with a mohawk houston is who we look at for our inspiration. This band that most people have never heard of before who has who has an outlandishly different looking singer who also is crazy sound. Yeah who who's also happens to be gay. A came from christian rock. They're the ones who started all run. I'll tell you what You know back in the the the nineties like venus studios in austin playing stuff. Whenever i kings x came to town. It was funny because you kind of like you could be at the studio. Maybe they're playing later that night. Maybe they're playing the next night but these are big huge studios. Lots of people rehearsing all the time. And you get to know people as you're moving in and out in inevitably you'd be like talk to the guys in the room to you. What are you gonna kings. Oh yeah absolutely. Of course i'm gonna kick. Why are there fifteen people in the rehearsal studio all in king's x t shirts all of a sudden musicians love these guys be these dishes. Love these guys you know. I am not i know there are some musicians like more than others. Original is or some great musicians out there that aren't fans but as a general rule in my experience musicians like kings acts. They're kinda musicians band. I think you're right. This is going to be the heaviest album that we've done to date We'll do heavier albums but you need to brace yourself. This is this is harder on. This doesn't sound anything like nebraska. That's for sure. Not at all or anything else that we picked for that matter said nothing like the kings albums from before that is also crack so interesting point on that I don't know if this is an appropriate segue. But i'm going to go into it so they have. We've talked about this before They played a lot of stuff in drop d It's where you take the for those long home. If you don't notice retake the top the low string on your guitar and you tune it down to step For some really cool sounds. Lots of bans for the nineties tool. Does it all the time and led zeppelin around for awhile. It's a deeper towed. It gives you a heavy. You're like more interesting thing to do so. They done that for a while when they got to this album. They actually took the took instruments. Tune them down a whole step and then tune into the town again. Our like dropped see but though because they tuned everything else down. Anyway you're still playing in drop d. You're just playing an entire active lower and turning down again so this was an experiment once again. Let's have some fun. Let's do some different things that contribute so much the heavy sound you get so much of that thickness and a lot of this is. This is very influential. A lot of the new metal stuff that came about in the early odds which i absolutely hate but a lot of those guys all with tune down the see just because when you go lower. Your singer can hardly right now. So there's a huge amount of bands like five six ten years later that we're all tune in down to see to get these big huge fat heavy sounds crazy. Town's kings experts doing it. The thing would they were doing is they were doing and they were saying three part harmonies over the of. They weren't growling and screaming. You know they were actually performing when you have three guys in the band and they are all exceptional musicians at their instrument and they can also all three sing in harmonize a special thing. That i mean that. That's pretty.
