ep 58: Said the weak-kneed turncoat (The Andy Griffith Show)

"Yeah. Maybe now let's just cue up the music. So it's a show. Starring guy lockout, narrow and Taylor. Also featuring. Ronnie howard. What if we just had this music open up every week? Thank you, little confusing for what's about to happen. Well, and I'm pretty sure there's a lawsuit going on right now about who gets money based off of this theme song, apparent losy ES isn't pain. Whom they're supposed to. So let's not do that. But to go for about five seconds on our podcast. We'll see. Yeah. Let's go. Ooh hope we don't get any Email soon from CBS. That's not the kind of Email. I'm looking for known. How are you doing today? Doing well ready to talk about a small town, while I'm living my own small town. While we talk about two shows set and small towns. Exactly. Because I didn't say, but for many of you who have listened already, you know, we're a podcast attempting to keep up with Laura line. Murray's pop culture, references on Gomer girls going stay in our regular small town, the small town, we all know in love so well for a little heard around the gazebo gossip, what so Taylor? There are plenty of characters in Goma girls, and other shows in the show about talk about later that have all these little characters kind of pop in, and then there suddenly gone, and you're like what's up with them? What's their real story? And sometimes, those characters become who were never meant to be drew occur and character end up coming back, which is kind of like on Jane, the virgin, they're supposed to kill off. Michael, like right away, but everyone loved him so he stayed on. So who is a character in Gilmore girls who you're like I wish I knew a little more. There is one that gets named dropped but we never see one each side. Tilley. Oh, there is mention of an e side Tillie who always has the hat gossip and bow bet is in competition for who has the hot gossip I whether it's her or e side Tilly, and we never meet this person we do meet a young soccer player on the team that Luke sponsors named Tilly. But she's about ten years old. And while I let was each site, too. I like how amazing what it be if bag that wasn't competition with a ten year old girl who has hat gossip on stars hollow. But I'm pretty sure it's not meant to be her. Yeah. Probably not. No. So east Tilly what's up with her? Yeah. But, you know, Gilmore girls insurance palladino loves to do that. Like Mr Kim, we see in the life, and I been noticing more and more just was watching up, so it's from season, one recently and they mentioned Mr Kim. A lot actually like, oh my friend lane. Her parents own, when she's telling her her grandma about Kim's antiques. Yeah. My friendly and her parents own it. So like clearly he's around. But, you know, that's after several episodes indices in one. So it is odd that they namedrop, but you never meet some of those characters, it is true. So for you is it Mr.. Kim. You know, it's actually not for me. It's a character that you see plenty, but I feel like I just don't know enough about. And that is Maury. Abets husband. Oh, that's true. Because he has this musical background and he plays you know, jazz piano, and things like that. But he we don't really know like where he came from how he Imbaba met how then up in stars hollow. I like to think that Maury was the person who helped restore bat after she got out of that Colt. That's she mentions one time being in cold. And I want to know more about that perhaps his music saved her. Yes. I love this idea. I think that's cannon. Done. That was once did I tell you that. No, I met this guy once or just ten look just like Mickey day we had coffee. He gave me a pamphlet next thing out. I'm wearing a moment playing to tampering jumping up and down at the port will the reason we are talking about characters. We wanna know more about today is because we are talking about another small town full of a lot of colorful characters, even when they're in black and white. That got me. My pleasure. Good. But first, let's talk about the episode of Gilmore girls. We're talking about today. It is Gilmore girls episode three twelve Laura light out of water. Because normally all the other episodes, Laura is definitely in water. So this is a real odd one. Yeah. I think this is probably why this is one of the most memorable episodes of the series to finally ally, get her human legs and leave those gills behind. Exactly. However, they somehow failed to mention that in the IMDB plot summary, this episode aired on January twenty eighth two thousand three and the plot summary is Laurie in ROY clean out the garage. So lanes band can use it for practice hug a world Luke and lawyers don't mix except for maybe Taylor's new attorney. Pairs tries to impeach Rory during this council meeting which gets them both sent to the headmaster's, office lanes prom plans backfire. Oh, poor lane. This is written very in cohesively. It was just like this happen this happen this happen. But. More accurate than some of them, except for grammar. I have fixed a few things in you can't see all the missing apostrophes. Thank you, sad day. But I do I like that. They dedicated entire sentence to Rory and Laura lie cleaning out there garage like that needs to be mentioned. Yes. Because boy, hugger world, what a stuffed planet. However is one who is packing up and moving a lot of boxes right now. I really feel them in. Can't imagine what it was like to have to clean out that garage. Yeah. At least you don't have rats in any of your stuff. As far as we know who. What, what how world it's my Hogle the plot third, we are going to be talking about today though is the one about pears Rory because apparently, that's all we talk about on this. Yes. Why can't we get away from these arguments because they're so witty during their art? I think so. I think we are eventually going to have to change our tagline. We say at the beginning of podcast, where we attempt to keep up with Paris, and France's, pop culture, references ongoing. Yes. But here is the conversation that Paris, Inverurie have right before they go see headmaster Charleston. So what this time trying to have me deported. Oh, yeah. I'm the one who called this meeting. I certainly didn't call this meeting save that for Sundance you snitch. It didn't snitch said the weak-kneed turncoat Nixon's bed seed daughter of Judas. Ladies come in these Kyla. What the heck were you thinking about when you heard these little snips and snaps at each other? Well, I don't know if I knew what Sundance was at the time. But maybe I did by then. So there's that weak-kneed turncoat. No idea Nixon's bad seed. I don't know president Nixon, daughter of Judas, well, that I get biblical. Good, old biblical humor in at Chilton. Call Rory Mary and yeah. They do have a lot of references there. What about you? I think I was at about the same place. I did know at Sundance was because I wouldn't to Sundance film festival in college up shock more about that some time. And I think of the three jabs they throw at each other because full disclosure when we were planning this up. So. We thought we were going to be talking about more than we're talking about today of those three. I didn't really know what any of them in other than I know who Nixon and Judas are, and that they're both people who betray, you know, the American people or Jesus depending on who they are. And I think of those three I thought those were going to have way more to them than the weak kneed turncoat. I honestly just thought that was a weird turn of phrase. Yeah. So Nixon's bad seed. We looked like it could have been more. You know, who wasn't axons, bad seed? When you type in Google Nixon's bad seed, you get lots of links for one Patty McCormack, who is an actress, but it's because when you fully inspect why is coming up. She was in a movie called the bad seed and. And she was in the movie frost Nixon from two thousand eight which is a good movie, by the way. Oh, good to know. She, however is not Nixon's bad seed. It's just Google search results. So turned out, it's just, you know, the phrase a bad seed and so- Nixon's bad seat, which we can fully talk about at the end. But yeah, thought there's going to be more to like who's this Patty McCormack now just Google. And if you Google daughter of Judas. There are things that. Show up. But nothing that seems either culturally significant enough that you think any Sherman palladino might reference this she definitely gets obscure. So does Daniel palladino in the other writers, they all get pretty obscure? But they're usually connected to something culturally significant in some way, which is really what we're going to talk about today. And so some random eighteen nineties, novel probably not what they're actually thinking of when they say this. No. I don't see Amy Sherm palladino someone who reads novels from eighteen nineties just because. I think she'd rather be entertained than than read, some, I don't know book, that's out of date, like she keeps up with, with the times, who's to say, though, she surprises us, sometimes it's true. So to our surprise the pop culture reference, in here that we're talking about today is one week need turncoat. Have you ever heard this phrase before? No. I mean week it has the word week in there. But we need turn. I mean. No. That's something I used to insult people regularly. Yeah. I mean, it was Paul revere who said the turncoats are coming the turncoats are coming, right? No coats. Sorry only so. No. I definitely don't know what it is. But turns out it comes from a any Griffith's show. Which who would think that when we're talking about insults, we're gonna turn to the most wholesome of all wholesome shows, the Andy Griffith show. The show. That's so wholesome it kind of makes you uncomfortable. Had you ever watched? The Indy Griffith show before Kyla. In passing like someone else had it on at someone else's house. It was just really boring to me. 'cause people just casually have Andy Griffith on in the background. Yes. Childhood friend. His dad would have any Griffith's show on quite a bit. Is there someone in your life who likes to play the Griffith's show Taylor? That's been your experience with it will while I did not specifically ever remember hearing this reference. Your friend's dad and my dad should go bowling sometime. We have to give a special shout out to my dad in the episode. Honestly, we should just go ahead and dedicate it to him. Because this man loves the Andy Griffith show, and I have many childhood memories of being in courage, d-, aka force to opt the Indy Griffith show on vacation road trips with the family. I cannot tell you how many times, and maybe the numbers not really that high, but it's feels inflated because I was a kid. Where we would be on a road trip in before we could watch the movie we wanted to watch in our little Honda odyssey with the flip down. DVD player screen behind the drivers seats. We had to watch an episode of the indie GRA for the show or two or three and my dad listening to it while driving just laughing at Barney five. Hera member one time we stopped at a WalMart on a road trip and he found a season of Andy Griffith DVD's, and it was the worst because we had to watch Andy Griffith now as adult going back to the show. This is a solid classic television show. But as a kid. It was a little bit of a kid level nightmare. Yeah. To be forced to watch something over and over and over again in specially when yet the black and white, I just as a kid could not be entertained. Yeah. It was challenging when I got a little older. I discovered things like I love Lucy. I really like that. And now you know, me and my Turner classic movies. I love it. But at the time I was not there yet. No. And frankly, what happens in the Andy Griffith show is not exciting. Their life lessons. But again, I have not watched much Andy Griffith that is for certain, but when I have is just like, oh, the fishing. Neat vienna. Wrong. I love Lucy though. I like that. I think I don't know what age. I was where I discovered that. So, but very different very different both black and white, but very different shows much Zanier. Yeah. Well, and you should probably know beautiful listeners. This is not the only indie Griffith reference on our show. And by our show in this instance, I mean, Gilmore girls 'cause I feel a little bit of ownership in the fact that it's my favorite show. Here is a little rundown of all the places. The Andy Griffith show shows up. Student in what since Trump, I don't know. Where would he meet anyone? He's either here in his apartment. Many is a secret life. Maybe got a little chippy stowed away in mount pilot will know eventually until MIR's casual Friday. Even started having started. We were waiting for you. I thought you were almost done when I was with this car of mine of its own. I turned leave it began spraying, some sort of green solution at me. Indeed. Well, go on starkville. No sense. It waiting for me. Coolest stop Gomer said, I'm in. Start started it when you read through his tell to walk it off. You walk it off. I'm trying to drive go. Geez. How any griffis is talent? You'll get so excited by figures. Digger stiles, wouldn't he want to talk to you? I have nothing to say to him, he might have something interesting to tell you what, the turn company, I used to work for is cutting my pension the stock that gave me when they uncertain Mona Asli forced me out has been rescinded. What long I called, you hours ago on here? Now Taylor what he's handcuffed these refuse take them away. What is your car like him on my bike? Why offer it took the core. Plus, my handcuffs broken been find appropriate vehicle to hold them away. My sister has an SUV, but she's out of town, though. We'll been vine them up in heaven follow you to do that, but it's a single cell though, at holds two, maybe three if they're not fad, and we don't have any forget, Barney fife from my brother has a Pinto, be had a long debate about Andy Griffith alive or dead. Then we finish sandwiches. Had four boys Ella throw a little trout choir wouldn't get to touched Gomer Iago. Don't be scared pinky pinky. Now finally enough. One of these references is also in the upside, we're talking about today. Oh, when Laura rely names, one of her fish Gomer. Nice, but we'll get to go Mer in a little bit. But is there? No pinky, and Andy Griffith show, not that I could find feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Be Andy Griffith show was a TV show that ran on CBS for eight seasons in two hundred forty nine episodes day while zoning. Nineteen sixty nineteen sixty eight it won six Emmys, and five of those were for the same person, Don nuts who played Barney fife, wow, best supporting actor and be aka Francis Bava or veer. She won for best supporting actress one year, and this crack me up it was also nominated for best comedy series three times. But the way they named that category was very different in the early sixties. It was called outstanding program achievement in the field of humor. Also known as best comedy. Yeah. Yeah God, they've shortened that. And just to get a little overview of the show. It is about a sheriff named Andy Taylor, who is a widow and his son Opie and they live with aunt v in Mayberry, North Carolina. And I am BB says at this way with virtually no crimes to solve most of AMP time is spent philosophizing and palming down his cousin deputy Barney fife. Oh my. That is such that. I think that gives a clear picture into what the shows like there's no crimes to solve but it centers around a town share of. And there are some fun connections with people on the show to some of the other shows, we've discussed Ron Howard, who plays Opie and was so cute back in the day. He's also a big time director now Neand. He went on to be in happy days, which I discussed with my mom on episode last season. And also Barbara Eden guest starred one time who plays genie of i-drive genie, nice character we're going to be referencing today, Ellie Walker played by Elinor Donahue. She was on an episode of murder. She wrote. There it is. In Andy Griffith was actually a spin off of The Danny Thomas show, which started in nineteen fifty three and then went on to spin off two more shows from Andy Griffith called Mayberry, r f d which sounds like it's basically the same show except without Andy and Opie which is kind of the heart of the show. So unclear how that worked exactly. And Gomer Pyle U S M C, which was about Gomer played by Jim Nabors going into the marines. Oh, wow. What does it with all these shows back in the day, just being called by the person's name Anne Griffith show? The Mary Tyler Moore show. I mean we still do it somewhat today. Seinfeld, for example. Oh, they did the Cosby show in the eighties. Yeah. Yeah, I could still around today. We just don't hear it as much for sure. Like a couple years ago. Mullany tried to do his own show in named it after him shell. But that was also kind of a bomb. So I don't know if that's the best example or not side note. And like some of the other shows, we've talked about return to Mayberry was a reunion movie. Remember, we talked about Gilligan's island in all those reunion movies. Yup. That came out in nineteen eighty six and fun fact. Andy Griffith women on to star in Matlock, which was a detective show in the nineties, and Don Knotts who played Barney guest starred seventeen times on that show while, okay I loved Matlock. I still really on. Yeah. If I'm like outta hotel. And that comes on TV. I'm all about it. I have never watched it. Oh, you should definitely try it. Okay. Who knows maybe that'll be an episode one day where your school in me every go about something in black holes, Matlock, and black and white. I feel like well it wasn't the eighties and nineties, so it'd be. Oh my gosh. Few everything that's like not from the nineties and beyond. Oh, it must've been black and white wanna a millennial came out last year. And it was in holler. What the? Trying to describe the eighty Griffith show as we have said is a little tricky because there's not a lot that happens. It's a lot of characters playing off of each other back and forth. And I will say going back now as an adult watching some of these episodes, I got a kick out of more than I did as a kid when I wasn't being forced to watch them by and I watched them the other night. He was still laughing his head off at Barney fife in one of the episodes we watched. There is a Bank in town, and they just have drawers. Well, it ready. Barney fife has just gone to see a movie where there was a Bank robbery. And so all of a sudden he's hung up on the fact that their security is really lax at the Bank, and he's not wrong. There are literally drawers of cash just open. At all times as he walks in the security guard, who is eighty something years old. His gun is two rusted for it to shoot in. He's literally taking a nap on the job. So his concern is valid in the sense that yes security is terrible. However, it's Mayberry. And so there's really nothing to be concerned about. So he tries to decide that he's gonna prove how lax the security is, and he dresses up as a cleaning lady. And of course, everyone knows who it is. And so they're just like we'll just humor him. I think he's trying to prove how easy it is to rob our Bank, and he ends up locking himself in the safe. And somehow the safe goes up against drywall wall in another business next door. So that's how he gets himself out. But they don't know that so they call a locksmith to get him out, one of those people as Gomer, which is his first introduction in the show. Okay. But there are some other guys who are from out of town in, because Bernie is talking about how lax the security is their thing, realize it would be really easy to rob this Bank. And so high Jackson sue, they are caught, but it's funny because Barney is the one who created this Bank robbery in the first place, because he was trying to prevent a Bank robbery, and there's just, it's humorous antics like that, that go all over the town in it's easy. Going sheriff Andy Taylor trying to rein Barney in. He doesn't let him carry a gun with a bullet in it Barney's allowed to have one bullet that he keeps in his shirt pocket. Should he need to use it? And so a lot of this is just trying to rein Barney back in teach Opie some life lessons. Enjoy visa many lesson. And you know, Andy goes on some dates now and then with people like Ellie. In their little town events. Sound familiar? I was just thinking the same thing funny how that works. And that's a lot of episodes of the show. Yeah. And the characters like I could totally see someone like feeling connected to them much like how we care about miss Patty and babette and. Lil, even though we never meet her you just kind of fall in love, if it just scratches that, that comedy entertainment. It's for you. In actually get ready for this. Do you hear that? Is that real paper in a real book? Yes, ma'am. It is a real book. It is called TV the book. That's I Ron IQ. I know. I love this book. It is from two critics Alan seven wall in Matt Zoller sites. They are to really experienced critics. They're really good writers, good thinkers, and they put a show or him. Sorry. They put a book together about the mush shows of all time, and they have several shows we've talked about before on this list of their top one hundred the honeymooners, Mary Tyler Moore show rocky in bowling coal air, and Gilmore girls thing. They're not at its, I know. So we know their quality but they also have the Indy growth show in here. And I just recommend this book hands down. It is so, well, written and thoughtful, they find lots of good ways to incorporate other shows that maybe aren't top one hundred but have left in impact in history, and they talk about in their book, how the Indy Griffith show really started because CBS wanted to make a buck off of people. They thought of as country bumpkins as they say, so they started doing all of these shows set in the south and set in the country, because more people outside of the cities were starting to get TV sets so shows like Greenacres, Beverly hillbillies. They really kinda thought like early country bumpkin goof-balls like we gotta make shows for them now. And so they say these characters spoke with a lot of exaggerated, drls fished, and he hawed and. Smack their knees and played banjo and smoked corncob pipes and skinny dipped in swimming holes. And it seemed a little more nineteen thirties, and nineteen sixties. But there's an indie Griffith really is one of the best of these partly because it really felt like a lot of these characters were real people and felt like a real place. And while it wasn't exactly lifelike in, you know, not a lot happens. One of the most important things that it contributed to this little sub genre of TV at the time as it gave a lot of dignity to these characters. They weren't dumb rednecks. They weren't cartoons. They weren't cliches, they were people, they were funny, not just because they didn't live in the city. But because they were real people kind of like Mark Twain characters, and they had a lot to say in life lessons. And you know, just treat each other like people. And that's part of why it really had such an appeal. So I thought this was a really interesting way to say this was part of a trend at the time, but it was better because it wasn't what the trend was meant to be. That's I mean, you have the characters like Gomer Pyle and, and Barney is, but he's not really funny because he's like a country bumpkin, but like Gomer is probably the Pitta me of that kind of stereotype of. But that's not how everyone is it's how the characters are. Yeah. And Gomer even you know, he's a blue collar guy. He works at the garage in town. There's another episode. I watched where he loses his job at the garage, because he spending so much time talking to the customers that he's holding up lines and not getting his work done. But then when he gets fired, and he goes to live with Andy for a while because he lost. He lived at the garage to. He he's driving Andy crazy because he's up all night. He super loud. He's just not self aware, but in a very you know, kind way, he ends up getting all of the business on the side from the garage because they love Gomer. So thank you, coming to fix the car. Not the garage. And so he gets rehired. Andy start sleeping through the night again. And everybody loves Gomer. So even though he's kind of a goofball he, you know, everybody loves them, and as an important part of the town. I mean, just think of Kirk when Kirk moved out of his mom's house without finding another place to stay. They took turns who's taking kurkin. Oh my gosh. I was thinking of Kirk as I was saying that, but I did not even think about that time when he sleeping in Luke's boat. Lure allies garage. Yeah. Just moving him all around. Because, you know, that's, that's what's cool about a community is taking care of each other. And. Having, you know, people to fall back on, and you love the goofballs you need goof-balls you do life is boring. And Kirk, I would say is the, the Gomer of stars hollow. I would agree. Come on people. It's not that complicated. I don't wanna be a burden at Patty one about the couch, you have in the back of the studio in her freezing cold studio with no insulation. And no heat sounds crazy. You know there's. Probably Kirk schedule. Cancer Taylor, just let them share. Soul voters for the night, maybe the Morrison's, we'll take him again. Their kids stuck things in my nose will unlock the door when you sleep. There wasn't while I was asleep. I'll just sleep outside in the Kosiba casino. I would ask, though that if I die from exposure, don't just don't mean the landfill. No one's dumping you in a landfill Kirk against regulations. Get onto the episode that we need turncoat is from. Yes, we should episode. Oh, I didn't write down with one ten one ten Ellie for council. Yes. Then this episode Ellie and Andy who apparently have some are romantically entangled for a little bit anima. They're going together, as you might say, Gotcha. And she notices that all the town council nominees. Candidates are men. She was like wire, though, men, an Andy's like well it's councilman after all. And so she decides to run. And of course, the guys were all up in uproar. What does this woman can't run? And then all the women were like go L E, and it just divided the town to the point where the wives and husbands were withholding things like money and cooking. And what else was there with just that? Well, they won't. They won't let the women use the charge accounts at the stores. So there's a little montage of women trying things on the not pain for them in the women make the men do their own shores. And they alarium kit, just iron marks on their sure. They don't know how to sew on a button. No, my cash burn their breakfast. It's rough. And L E at the end is like, well, I'm just I'm just gonna withdrawal because can't have this whole town divided admirable and then moment happens. Where Opie says we won dad. We won. And it's like, yeah, but what did we really win? Oh. What are you doing in the enemy camp? I just came by Saint Yoon wind. I'm withdrawing my name is candidate housing. We just isn't worth, it be, you know, the rally down at the hotel, or the loyal opposition gathered, Jere and poke fun. It's just not worth it, and you're gonna quit. That's ri- ninety two run. I had no intention of starting a civil war may berry, I happen to like it here too much mainly. NC man's. We kept Commissioner plane. Women can Paul? No. This is a fine example of raising a little boy. And so he goes up up on stage and where they're having a little bit of a rally. I think the women are saying go, L E. We want her. Yeah. And Elliot's about to withdraw her candidacy, an- Andy goes up. And he says, you know, all of us menfolk we don't want Ellie for council, because she's a woman, and they're like, yeah. Yeah. Like, but can we is there anything else any other reason why not? And, and so they realized no just about her gender. So I guess it's okay. In which is pretty radical transformation because these were the guys who were calling Barney fife a weak kneed turncoat among other things for saying he would vote for Ellie. Yeah. So here's a little bit of this conversation. Have you heard the news my wife all this, and she ain't the only one don't tell them where it's in flyable snowball, clear out of control. This is the worst thing that ever happened to this town. It's Mayberry's darkest hour all now Gambia that band why they're reuse. There's no weak kneed chicken liberty Emma street, turncoat. Now, look Sam you've got something to say. Ballboys anal, used ledger. Tempers flag. Varna had signed that petition while they got their hundreds name someplace else. They know us come in here and chew him out. Okay. Turncoats. Aren't even getting back to me and problem. Now we're land this right at your door. Now, we never had a woman run for office in may before. Now what you wanna do it. You're friendly with her. Not now this wait a minute. Now L is just running for council. Now running is a long ways from Lynn. Don't be too. Sure. Andy there, a lot of women voters in this town, just as many as our men, not to mention a few men, that might even go over to their side, vote for a woman. Same weak-kneed chicken liver, yellow street turncoat that would sign up and tissue. Just waiting for you to go to. I wish the would would've used all of those yet. Ye yes. Wow. Talking like Andy Griffith there yet. I think it is an interesting shortened version. I think we would have been tipped off to the fact that it was a pop culture reference right away. If she'd used the full blown chicken livered yellow something law, blah. Yeah. But nothing so to just. Weak-kneed turncoat. So a moment from this, that actually just happened on Jane, the virgin wise, everything connecting to Jane, the virgin today, because that's our other show. Yeah. One of many and yeah. That connects is when Andy cease his son, like yeah. Dad, we won us. Men, one in seems like that kinda helps them realize, like, really know where if we're going about this, the right way is on Jane, the virgin, this past episode at least from the time that we're recording. This really isn't spoilers. So don't worry about that. But Jane son, Matteo sees her a boy, LA's husband just like leave is played at the table and not clean up after himself. And so Matteo is like, oh, well, I get to go and. I don't have to clean up after myself and Jane has to explain, you know, no, it's he's like, but he didn't. And he's a man. I'm a man. So I don't have to. And, and so she realizes oboe this is like, not setting a good example. And how can I just I kind of like that in shows like when characters see through their children that who are just very simple minded in how they think things through. And that kinda helps you likes the adults simplify like wait. What am I really doing? What am I really thinking? And saying if this is what my child is then repeating. Oh, and that's a totally real thing in real life, too. So I think that's why it works so well, which I guess I don't have a a any children. And so I don't have that I haven't had that experience. No. But I think I you know, I don't have my own children, either, but I've definitely seen that in how adults talk about their children like, oh, I realize this because XYZ, you know, has my child said this, and they went. Oh, no. I didn't realize I was sending that message or I didn't ever think about it that way before. Yeah. I agree. It's a good way to use that as a storytelling device. Yeah. So this made me think of that, and how that just happened, this past Assode so turncoat that phrase, which I just kinda looked it up. Because in context, you can kind of see, like it's an insult clearly, but where does it really come from? But it's about being a traitor, which, you know, was what they perceive that Barney was being when he supported a woman candidate. So I was just kind of decided to go down a little rabbit hole, Taylor of women politics. But we're not a political show. Oh, not at all. But we are very historical. Okay. Fair proceed. So thank you, this episode came out in nineteen sixty. And here's one thing I didn't realize which I don't know. Maybe call me a bad American woman, but I did not realize that women actually were running for offices before women were even allowed to vote. I think I've heard a few fluke stories of women. I shouldn't use that word, but you know what? I mean of the rare instance of a woman running for office before they had the vote and the not winning usually in the context of how I I it. Yeah. Definitely winning was not something they did. But they did run for office before women did run for office before the right to vote came. So thought that was rather interesting. But PBS put together a brief history of women American politics. And so I just have here's a brief history, guys. And especially if this episode came out in nineteen sixty women were running for office long before that. And the first council woman, in, in a in a major city, so there might have been one before. But at least recorded from what I could find was Luella Johnson in nineteen twelve in Sacramento, California. She served on different committees. And she just kind of like the perfect candidate to do it small business owner. She ran with her husband. And then Elliott may Barry ran in nineteen sixty so, you know, nearly fifty years later so women have been doing it for a while. So it's totally unheard of that Ellie would be saying, why aren't there women on the council? Yeah. But doing it for decades at this point. Yeah. So the three women who made it on a presidential ticket were Geraldine Ferraro in nineteen eighty four than Sarah Palin into an eight, and then, of course Hillary Clinton twenty sixteen so nine hundred eighty four. I women on presidential ticket. I women to run for president, though was Victoria would hole in eighteen seventy two in the equal rights party. I do believe I have heard of miss Victoria, Woodhull. Excellent. First women elected, as mayor in the US was an eighteen eighty seven in our Goania, Kansas, and a small town about eight hundred residents. So I kind of picture that as like a everyone knew Susanna, and what a wonderful woman around the town only eight hundred people, you know, a little bit like Mayberry, maybe. Yeah. Similar feel. What do they have, like a estimated population in may? Mayberry. Google. That, that's a great question. I'm sure somebody's asked that question before. Oh, here we go. In the opening scene of season. Eight episode thirty the last episode assign at the railroad station. Lists. The population in elevation may population five thousand three hundred sixty elevator knows except one however, this is per Wikipedia. So take it with your grain of salt, this conflicts with the comment made by choir director, John masters to Indy Taylor that there's got to be a decent tenor in town of two thousand people in a season, four up sewed. And doubled well end in season. Seven a character says it's a population of eighteen hundred. So basically, it could be anywhere from eighteen hundred to fifty three hundred. So, well, the eight hundred residences that's smaller, but small town feel nonetheless. I guess that would be a really small town, eight hundred very tiny. Yeah. That's probably when you gotta start looking outside of town to get married because you might be marrying your cousins, otherwise. Yes. I women to run for congress, Elizabeth Stanton in eighteen sixty six ran as an independent in New York, Katie Santon. Yes. She's a pretty big figure in history of women's rights. Go her. She did not win, though. She got twenty four of the twelve thousand votes. Wow. That end ran before women could vote while so might be a factor. Yeah. So twenty four men, we're like sure twelve thousand so twenty four weak-kneed turncoats. You might say, yeah. Change in that to a compliment I am for that. Woman elected on congress Jeannette Rankin of Montana in nineteen sixteen. I one to serve in the Senate. Rebecca Felton of Georgia shoes, appointed in nineteen twenty two to fill avait vacancy. She served for two days. Hey, there's gotta be a first for everything was start. Today's is better than zero. First woman elected to the Senate. So actually elected, not just in vacancy was had he care wave. Arkansas in nineteen thirty two already I African American woman elected to congress was early Chisholm of New York in nineteen sixty eight so that was fifty or than fifty years after the first woman elected a congress. So that took a while. And then the first African American woman elected to the Senate Carol Moseley Braun Avila in nineteen ninety two. Wow. That was another few decades. Yes, who recently, I say, super recently because it's within my lifetime. Yes. And then we all know Nancy Pelosi in California. I only woman to serve speaker of the house twice than seven two thousand eleven Yup. She's the highest ranking woman in US political history. Wow. That would make sense because she is right in line for the presidency after president vice president. Yeah. And then just some other offices we have the first woman, the cabinet Francis Perkins, who was appointed the secretary of labor in nineteen thirty three by FDR. And then I female governor Nellie Taylor Ross from Wyoming. She want a special election to replace her late. Husband in nineteen twenty five I kinda love that they just elected his life. The kale, you must have known what was going on. Takeover. So anyways, just to kinda give some context around this episode came out know nineteen sixty and by then a woman had served on the Senate in congress. Mayor. I mean, women had held a lot of elected to the Senate, yet, a lot of offices cabinet. Uh-huh. By the time a woman was running for councilman seat, which is much smaller than, you know, Senate or congress, but very critical to a small town. So while in do you remember way back in season? One, we talked about the Donna Reed show. Seem to remember that? Nathan of our show. Yes. We talked about in episode in season five that aired in actually three years after this nineteen sixty three in which Donna Reed runs for council, or Donna, whatever her fake last name is on the show. She runs for council, and it kind of freaks out her husband, right? And he has the terrible nightmare where she goes on to be president of the United States. And he's the first man and expected to so on buttons a throw. And she ultimately backs down and says, I won't do it. If you're really worried about it. I was only doing it because I thought you wanted me to do it. And once again, you don't need to run for council. If you don't want to, but it feels like a very different perspective, even three years earlier in this indie Griffith show, where he starts off on, like, well, it's silly for women to run for council, where do you get these silly ideas? And he ends up in a place of saying, hey, I support this Elliott pretty great person. And I think she would make really great decisions for our town, and she ends up getting elected. Yeah. I had forgotten about that episode from the donor each show. But yeah, she ends up backing out, well, but it was like her motivation was much different from elis, but it's a very different message than than this episode. Andy Griffith show dead. And it seems like the idea of, you know, the husband trying to stay home and make breakfast. He's just never gonna figure that out. Yeah. How do you flip an egg madness? There's all this toast burning and things like that while. One day trying to plan council meetings, etc. Yeah. It's crazy. Yeah. Toasters have setting sees them. Gosh. So, yeah. As far as N, but what the Indy said in the beginning, or what who was it was an aunt, aunt may. Be it has lightermen. It's like from something is it Ambi who says, oh, we can get with? We can keep up with the big cities. I. To that. Yeah. Yeah. Which is very accurate because other places word, you know did have women in elected positions. So getting with the times. Exciting. First time in may be real women ever ran for office. What really like the big cities? On his, I hope you jam and time to vote. Well, if you check out the Indy Griffith show and decide you love it, or if you know someone like my dad or maybe, you know, my dad hay fever ins and think the Griffith show is something that probably deserves a full blown experience to live out in a fund set in on the weekend much like Disneyland or something like that. Well too bad. I don't think there's an indie Griffith world at universal Orlando or. Although you could argue that some of the, like small town places at magic kingdom are kind of like small town may berry. Just with way, more than five thousand people. There are a number of opportunities though, to still celebrate the Indy Griffith show with things like Mayberry days. Have you heard of Mayberry days? I have not. Well, they are happening actually in multiple places around the country in just searching for news about the Indy Griffin. The show these events, keep coming up. There was a Mayberry in the mid west festival in danville. Indiana in may. They had a whistling currently. Yeah, a trivia, contest a look alike. Contest also in may or may bury you might say, there was a Mayberry memory show in Chattanooga or near Chattanooga. And one that hasn't happened yet. If you were so inclined you could go in September to mount airy North Carolina, which I think is a thick kind of claim that as Mayberry as their spiritual town. There's an Andy Griffith museum there. And they are having tons of ants like that. Whistling championship contest. That they had in Indiana. There is live music. There's a golf tournament. There's dance lessons bake sale, and apple peeling contest, upholding contest trivia, several trivia sessions and a parade. If you love Andy Griffith. This is the place for you September in North Carolina. We will definitely put information in our jump ler. Doesn't that just feel? I don't know. Not right. If it's not an may than I mean, come on playoff, the pun. I mean, I think it's all about probably time of year. I suspect it's a little cooler in September them in may in North Carolina, but I have never been there. So I cannot say, for sure. Maybe this is my tune to go. Definitely this is the time to visit, I betcha your dad would completely cover all costs and you too could enter together. Yeah. We could enter a lookalike contest and see how it goes. We heard how my whistling contest would have gone. No still. Can your dad was the theme song? I don't know. I've never asked him. Canada activity this afternoon. Speaking of that themes on. I've got some fun facts for you super fun fact. We love our fun facts. Yeah. We do. Did you know that cute little whistle? Tune was written in about fifteen minutes. The guy who wrote it. He also wrote several other theme songs for TV in that time, he said, I realized what the show needed was a simple tomb. So I spent all fifteen minutes writing it. I called my bass player in drummer. We recorded it in a little studio in Hollywood. I will the tune myself. Cute. And in may Ron Howard had an interview in the New York Times they called it a confirm or deny which basically, they would say something and he would either go. Yes. That's true or no. It's not in the New York Times said those fishing poles, you and Andy Griffith carried in the great opening credits of the ended Griffith show. Never caught fish and run Howard said, no. Unless you count, all of the fishing scenes were the prop me and had to wait in and put a catfish on the line. We were only allowed to put to fish day in there, because it was actually the drinking water for Hollywood. And on the opening credit scene shoot, I was only allowed to throw to rocks in the water for the same reason. There is a lot of pressure on that rock toss. I had right. Oh, that's funny. I love that. And I love it. He remembers that from when he was so little. Yeah. How old is he? Let's check litter. The Indy Griffith show started in nineteen sixty and Ron Howard was born. In nineteen fifty four. So he would have been six when the show started. Wow. Just a little guy. Oh, yeah. He was stinking cute. I've forgotten that Ron Howard, the director was Ron hot, Ron Howard, the child actor. Well, I feel like it's kind of hard to remember where it makes it easy to forget. Now that he's kind of an older bearded balding guy who. Makes movies with Tom Hanks? Yeah. So Taylor, are you ready to talk about how this reference fits into the context of Yoma girls? I sure hope so. All right. Let's let's do it. So here's one thing that I like about this reference, is that it is. Now, you might think, okay. Atrium palladino. She watched grefell. She thought this insults funny throat in their great, but you'd be wrong. Am I right? I'm a little confused by the construction of what I'm agreeing to or denying like Ron Howard confirmed your name, but keep going keep going with this train of thought the term turncoat means switching parties switching loyalties, maybe a sports team comes from supporting leaders or the party that you're with so political. That's political Eli's running for office, Parison Rory. What are they having issues in where did this all begin in politics? Their student government with Francy and, and the gavel and all that. So parking garages secrets. Lots of bathroom meeting. Francey style, man. So. This came from an episode where they were debating will they were the town was struggling about their upcoming election. That was the argument and Rory and Paris are also button heads in their their own political arena. So anyways. It's it fits. While we're not really in the stars hollow world. I do think may berry has a lot of overlap with stars hollow of colorful characters quirky little situations. I mean Gilmore girls is also not a huge plot heavy show. Not an exactly the same way as Andy Griffith. But it's a lot of just characters bouncing off of each other. There's one little conflict, and they gotta figure out how to resolve it. And Chiltern is its own microcosm in a way to. Well, and, you know starts hollow, there one political episode when Jackson runs against Taylor for county selectmen. They kind of have like a mayor who pops in. But then there's selective and I don't know how small town politics work, what? And I'm not sure stars hollow is the place to understand how other places work. That is so true. So they don't really get into that. But it's just more comedic any any of their, you know, their town meetings and whatnot. So yeah, but I like that. This insult comes from, you know, talking about political debate, and that's how it's used in Gilmore girls is. About switching loyalties, and that, and that's the other part is that it's about Barney. Switching his loyalty from the men to the women and all of these insults, that were used were switching loyalties so Knicks. You know, Nixon, he was he betrayed the American people. Like you said, and then daughter of Judas, Judas betrayed Jesus. So it's all about that betrayal. And I'm a hundred I'm still trying to formulate. This. But in my mind, there also seems to be a connection with win Paris and worry, you know, go into meet with head vest Charleston, and he tries to start guessing what they're arguing about. I love how funny this conversation is this behavior will stop this instant. It is disgraceful, especially from the political leaders of this campus. Now, I'd like to know what is actually driving this recent rash of infighting. Oh, goody I get to guess. Well, let's see, perhaps, you're arguing the same boy girl. So we could only be arguing about a boy, right? Sexist, white hair. Taras. Are you muttering? No. Sorry. I think headmaster Charleston speaking some truth there. Yeah. You know, except for when he's guessing about why they're arguing enemy goes to avoi-. Yes, some 'bout women running for council. Why not? Because one on might win. Not. They do everywhere else. Apparently, you don't think much of women. Oh, hell no. You're taking it personal. I am. We'll now that's a Celia teas. I didn't mean to say that. No, I didn't mean to say that bit it. You just it just slipped right out of my mouth here giving it right back to me. Back on you'd had a bad. But it seems like there's some sort of parallel about how Indy Griffith, or I guess Andy Taylor in the show. Kinda says, oh you silly deer a half hour. You get this. I d about how you want to run for city council, and she's like, no, I'm completely serious. Don't just, you know, or Paris, don't just say, we're arguing over a boy. We have a real beef here. This is a real on flick. It's not something petty. Yeah. Yeah. So that is the other way that this really connects is that it's all about gender, far as you know, in the indie Griffith show just upset about Barney support and a women. And then what does headmaster Charleston do decades? Later is a sill just as it must just be over a boy, what silliness is happening. I think too, though had messed atrocity was probably he was frustrated that he was having a guest. So I don't think he was taking it too. Seriously? So I'm not gonna call him a sexist white hair. For yes. Well, and maybe he knew if I start with the most ridiculous thing, maybe they'll finally tell me what it is. No, the. All right. Yeah. So I think Paris secretly loved the Griffith show. And that was part of why she wanted at one point to find the CD underbelly of stars hollow. He's Luke of running a prostitution ring speak, because she watched Griffith's show and was fascinated by that small town. And now one to understand stars hollow, and we did hear Jess, in our little montage, Leear say is this just straight out of the Idi Griffith show like the world is this. Yeah. Any Griffith show or Mayberry stars hollow. It's got the get some similarities. So Taylor, so Kyla that's our show that their show. Oh, I made it about two more notes keep trying about it.

I thought of this last week went when Casey. was with a friend out in Boston and they drove by cheers. And I was cheers. Years ago I flew out with a my college roommate. We watch the the Boston Celtics and the Detroit Pistons play at the Old Boston Garden, and we went to chair I. Remember I had a cup of Clam chowder. Such a cliche in Boston and it. Cheers and. Casey saying they drove by cheers. Maybe think of this topic. I'm looking for the TV show spots the places to dine drink. Hang out that you'd like to whether they're real or not is inconsequential.

That's good Arnold's. you know if you wanted to get a little, little, little, racy, little, little, dangerous, a little maybe into criminal underworld What if we added the the bottom being? From the Sopranos. which was a strip club?

Dancers well without any clothes on who I'm losing my train of thought. What else are we putting on this list for the TV hangouts? Spots dine drink. Hang out off how this is! This earlier today it's GonNa, did yod lay? It ought be where you going. The Regal Beagle's. Yes. You know the thing about that.

Thanks have a good night. The Regal Beagle's three's company. It was the neighborhood meeting place for Jack and Chrissy and Janet and Larry, and even the furloughs went there I in my copious amounts of research for this earlier today I came across the fact that and be opened a Chinese restaurant in the light years of the Andy.

Kind of jump the shark and but I don't remember and be opened up and B's something palace. If I remember, it was Chinese, I don't.

Chang and Eng: A Messy American Dream

"It's alive. And I'm in mount airy North Carolina population ten thousand three hundred forty seven located at the foothills of the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains. This is the birthplace of beloved American actor Andy Griffith and the model for Mayberry the setting for his classic sitcom the Andy Griffith show. Griffith played sheriff Andy Taylor keeping watch over his sleepy town and his young son Opie played by little Ronnie Howard. When you give you word never go back on you understand that. Okay. Aw. You can trust me if the name sounds familiar Opie grew up to become happy as actor and Hollywood movie director, Ron Howard. To bring in the tourists. Mount airy does its best to recreate the Mayberry experience. You can eat at snappy lunch, which was mentioned on the show. Famous. Sandwich with this pain, mater flow. You can ride around in a replica Mayberry police car. You can spend a couple of hours at the Andy Griffith museum. So in our house every day. Yeah, they're recorded. And we watched all the time growing up. We watched it in reruns. It was my father's favorite show. Six thirty pm channel five. But not many of these people know that the price of admission to the anti Griffith museum will allow them entrance into another smaller museum just downstairs in the basement. They dollars prize includes the Siamese twin exhibit as well. As Andy Griffith museum ticket peek at it, the Siamese twins mount Aries second and third favourite sons. These are. Yeah. Apart of them. This is fascinating. It really is. I don't know if they died together on I'm trying to figure out what happened at the end of their lives. Tanny Jones runs both places and talks about a common reaction from the people who visit the exhibit downstairs, this apprise is why is it here? And it's here because this is where they settled and raised their families. Chang and anger bunker, the once world famous conjoined twins were born in Thailand called Siam at the time in eighteen eleven and later in life settled right here in mount airy, many years before people even heard about Mayberry. This episode is about those remarkable twins. It's a complicated and not always happy story. But this story is real. So I mean, they weren't a part of the show or anything where. Roofing show, I'm Morocca, and this is mobile Aries. Chang and bunker, a messy American dream. This is Francis. Carolina. I've seen you before. No, you seen him on television and CBS. I'm Francis hall. Okay. Family reunion here in mount airy, North Carolina, and he must be the youngest bunker here. Oh my gosh. Okay. So it's not my family reunion. But I'm happy to be crashing for the food alone. And needed the mango. Knock it for different differ than biscuits and gravy while this families North Carolina roots stretch back nearly two centuries. It's tie roots stretch back much farther. Greetings and high to descendants. Welcome to the I believe twenty ninth annual bunker union. This is the bunker family bunkers the name Chang adopted when they came to North Carolina at this reunion, family members, take sides, fourth grade, grandson of Chiang bunker. I'm very grandson of. Chang. I'm a descendant being he had the strongest body, but he's face was kind of like a plow face little uncle Chang. He had the weaker by the backbone, but he had the prettiest face in had everyone. Here seems proud to be descended from the twins. Let's read the back of your shirt. It says our family sticks together, and there's a picture of being Chang on the back. But apparently, it wasn't always something the family celebrated. Now, she found out the Sammy's. How did you find out but Siamese twins? Jay is a little girl and just opened up secretary. And I saw all these articles and pictures of the twins stashed away. You felt like you were discovering family. She grits turns out many of the almost one thousand five hundred descendants of Chiangiang, I know it's crazy number will explain have been on journeys of their own. And that's the other story. We're going to tell you. I remember walking down the streets of little mount airy, North Carolina and going into a store and somebody would look at me and say even be one of those bunkers, so I was a little bit labeled. Alex shank is a great granddaughter of Chang bunker, but I have to give credit to my father because he said he said, we should be. So proud of the fact that you come from the Sammy's twins who overcame so many obstacles. And it's an incredible story detail. The twin story begins on the other side of the planet in a fishing village. Inside handsome, the boy's family was actually ethnically Chinese the twins were born on a houseboat perfectly healthy except for a four inch long band of flesh. And cartilage joining them at the midsection trees your finger down the lower part of your chest. Right where the bone stops. That's where they were connected. They shared one bellybutton right in the center of that band, despite this connecting band, they let a relatively normal life. They learn to walk and just swim and help the family make ends meet they raised ducks and sold the exit market in Thailand, they weren't raised as curiosities the way that they would become in the United States. That's Joe Orser a history professor at the university of Wisconsin oak Lehrer. He's the author of the lives of Chang and Eng Siam's twins in nineteenth century, America. They're giving a great amount of freedom to run around and play. One day when the boys are just twelve years old, a British merchant named Robert Hunter come sailing down the river and he spots something in the distance. And he saw what he would later describe a monstrosity. He thought it was some sort of animal playing in the water, then he would discover that it was these conjoined brothers and immediately he thinks we can make a lot of money exhibiting, these two young boys. Hunters spends five years lobbying the king of Siam for permission to take the boys with him. And if you're picturing Yul Brenner, sorry, the king. His character is based on the musical doesn't come on the scene for a few more decades. Fekete is up. Finally after hunter teams up with American ship, captain Abel coffin the kings Hines off and in eighteen twenty nine the seventeen year old twins set sail for America. And I don't think they had any idea what they're getting into. They had no idea when they left in eighteen twenty nine that they're not ever going to see their homeland again, they're not going to see their mother again that for the rest of their lives are going to be in the west. They spent four months on the ship climbing the mast learning to play chess picking up English from the sailors. The America that greets them is in the middle of transformation. Andrew Jackson is the brand new president the country's industrializing, and it's a super boring place. There are basically three options for entertainment card games, cider drinking and cockfights. That's pretty much it. No surprise Chang and Eng become instant stars. People magazine existed back then they would be in it every other week. Some of the first entertainers in America, these famous ones within months, they are household names the freeze that would come to describe them Siamese twins becomes very famous very quickly as well. That's right there the original Siamese twins. That's where the expression comes from by. Now that foreign JR. Band has stretched to five and a half inches. No, small difference. They were able to stand side-by-side. If you've ever seen pictures of them dressed nicely in each has one arm over the other shoulder that was the most comfortable position for them to me. The kind of looked like two best friends coming home from a late night out. As for the show. They put on there were some acts of acrobatic feats that they would be asked to do these included somersaults or lifting weights or playing badminton when each holding a racket and hitting birdie back and forth. They're being asked to perform these types of physical feats for an audience as paying money just to watch them just because they're a pair of conjoined twins. But they're not just being they kid is good as they get with a funny. Yeah. Some of the commenters said that they had a great sense of humor. They're very quick witted. So you could ask a question, and they would be, you know, quick with the response during one show, they notice a one eyed man in the audience, and they tell them they'll refund half of his admission because after all he's only seeing half the show. They travel the country in New York City there exhibited at the grand saloon of the Bassanha. Call in small towns, they perform in living rooms or tents, the small rural communities, they hold exhibits, and you've got weddings full of people converging on the small towns to see the twins and to talk about the twins and to spread rumors about the twins. There's this one story of superstition surrounding them. That's a specially wild. So in Kentucky shortly after their visit a woman gives birth to conjoined twins and immediately. The thought is did she see the twins? Was there conditions somehow contracted by her because she saw the twins, and no she hadn't actually gone to the show, but she had seen pictures of the twins being advertised, and so the question is well did that cause almost like role. Exactly. We're all wired to find the idea of conjoined twins, Siamese twins, just completely and totally riveting. I remember being a kid and you you'd hear about a set being born. And it's just it's you just can't help. But be fascinated. Why do you think that is? Because at once it's so familiar, and yet also so different so alien, they had the ideal physical form. It's the fact that they had this extra Banda flesh that connects them and at once it's appealing it draws your tension. But you also feel a slight sense of horror there an early version of ultimately, what would become known as a freak show, a traveling freakshow and those kind of experience a tremendous level of success in the nineteenth century. Part of the fascination is that Chang, an or among the very first Asians in America. This decades before Chinese immigrants come to work on the railroads philosophers opine about their souls, doctors prod them with needles. There's a rom com written about them Herman Melville alludes to them in Moby, Dick. Oh, and none other than Mark Twain speculates on them. He writes this when one is sick. The other is sick when one feels pain the other feels it. When one is angered the others temper takes fire, and our people actually questioning whether they are one person or two there in Alabama and a doctor in the crowd and the audience of one of their shows thinks that they're in some way trying to pull a fast one over on them. So the doctor asks one brother, what will happen if I poke you in the arm with a needle and the other one says if you poke my brother in the arm at the needle, I'm going to punch you have to. The bunkers have got tempers, that's Jasper bunker. He's a great grandson of aing. It said the twins had opposite personalities and was gentle and well-mannered Chang was cranky and love to fight. Sometimes they fought with each other. And sometimes that temper was directed at those who gotten their faces got into. Fight and full of fish started going, you know. If you mess with one brother, you're going to get the other brother four full going collared, increasingly their temper was directed at able coffin. He'd bought out Robert Hunter for full ownership of the twins contract. They had started to understand that Americans solve them as bonded labour. The money they earned was not going to them, but to their owner. And so they knew that Americans believed that they were slaves. Just one of many indignity suffered when the twins travelled to England coffin and his wife luxuriating in first class while Chang'an statements steerage the servants soon enough they'd had enough. Here's a descendant Alex sink again in a had the courage at the age of twenty one to fry the guy letter and said, we're done. Who can do this narrow and so they did it helped that they planned ahead for life as independent men. They were very frugal and saved enough money because I think they had in their mind. They didn't want to spend the risk their lives display. There are journals that outlined every single penny. They spent their tour at the age of twenty eight they travelled through rural North Carolina when they saw the Blue Ridge mountains in the distance. They were reminded of Siam. It was a sign. They wanted to have a normal life. They were young men. They were normal young men who wanted to have a family Chang and were ready to settle down and make new connections. And this is where the story gets really interesting. One of the most important things we do for our health. Every day is brushing our teeth yet. Most of us don't do it. Properly. Quip is a better electric toothbrush. Designed by dentists and designers to make brushing your teeth more simple, affordable and even enjoyable three out of four of us.

Did you see the bridge yet chain eventually and this side of the creek and inks family had the other side of the creek during the bunker, family reunion. I wanted to get a little closer to the life. That Chang and anger lead here in mount airy, North Carolina. So he asked Alex to show me around. And then the outhouse was down the hill. We know what the house looked like we know is a two or. Built for the twins. The story of Chang'an anger taking the country by storm and then winning their freedom so triumphant. So it's a little surprising that some of the family members the reunion drew up not even knowing they were related to them when I was growing up. Nobody about the twins very much really grandmother wouldn't even let us bring up their name. In the Victorian age. Nobody wanted to talk about. Now, they created Twenty-one children. Yes. Twenty one children. But before we get ahead of ourselves. After a decade on the road Chang. And anger retired to rural North Carolina where they could start building a life undisturbed by curiosity seekers. They became American citizens and as the established themselves in town, they started looking around for potential wives. The story goes that at a friend's wedding Chang fell hard for Adelaide Yates. It was mutual. But as one half of conjoined twins Chang realized the relationship was going to be extremely awkward unless anger also found spouse. The good news was that Addie had a sister. Sarah, the bad news was that Sarah, didn't particularly like hang. So the twins hatched. A plan. Have all the women from neighboring towns over for quilting party, the erase version of a group hang and doted on Sarah sharing tales of life on the road. It worked the twins had found their other halves. What do you think they overcame in the mountains of North Carolina best saying, they when you get married? Matt God, and somehow through their charm and wit, these two girls fell in love with them. And agreed to can you Mansion House candle is that one? Two sisters to absolutely the sisters for sure it didn't hurt that the twins were funny, and well, rich, and that Atty and Sara for us to not caring what other people thought. Now, I think probably the fact that their mother was a was different how because it being enormously overweight. Remember tannoudji Jones? She's not only head of the Andy Griffith museum slash Siamese twins exhibit. She's also a descendant of anger and chair of the bunker reunion this year. She supposedly was the largest person in the area in reportedly weighed over five hundred pounds, and they were used to being in the presence of someone who was looked at as different so possibly that made them more open minded he was around this time that the twins considered being separated. They figured they were going to have normal lives. This was the moment Adelaide and Sarah were against it. I choose to believe that the girls preferred to have them alive together conjoined rather than possibly dead separated. Both couples were ready to tied their respective knots. But this was chartered legal territory and not because of the brothers being conjoined marriage between whites and non whites was illegal to twins or not white, but they also weren't black. So in this case hoping to avoid any problems each other posted a bond of one thousand dollars. And in April eighteen forty three in a small double wedding. And can I just say I love double weddings, Chang'an Angbun ker, married. Sarah, Ann, Adelaide Yates and commenced building their families. But exactly how did they do that? Or you knew it was coming. Let's talk about their sex lives. Well. Let me give you a few facts, and then leave the rest for imagination. This is wrong. He's a professor at the university of California Santa Barbara and author of a biography about the twins called inseparable when the first married the home. They one house the full them by late on they said up two separate households. They set up this kind of over rigid schedule. Here's how it worked for three days and nights, they stayed at one brother's house, and then they moved to the other brothers. But say they were at Chang's house Chang of on the in those three days, can do whatever he likes whatever he does if he's alive and during this time would go into a passive meditative state. Imagine a computer in sleep mode, not shutting down but inactive took Wong describes the arrangement as one of alternate mastery. It's what allowed each other to enjoy intimate relations with his spouse. While the other brother was right, there was the bed sort of big enough for three people. Then actual why really if you're giggling the description of this unorthodox arrangement, I get it. But it's also beautiful. The very definition of selflessness to surrender free will to sacrifice like that to give your brother some meaningful time with his wife. The marriages were fruitful. Chang and Adelaide had ten kids. And Sarah edge the mount with eleven. And they were very loving parents. I mean, you can tell from dislocated even some of the fed graphs. He now is looking today the way Chang and his arm around my grandfather, and it wasn't staged or anything. It was just. They say loved their children loving. Your children is natural. For Chang brought to this country for exhibition for these men to even have children and raise families strikes me as nothing short of radical. But being southern gentlemen in the antebellum, south meant something else altogether. Everything you see around. Here was part of our farm. If you had been here does fields would have been covered in tobacco plants while Chang objected to themselves being seen as slaves. They had no problem. Owning slaves. Slavery was a fact in antebellum south. So it was their tickets. I should emphasize into the southern white world. This is the point at which the narrative becomes very complicated and uncomfortable right up until this point you really root for that. But at this point, the story, kind of you hit a brick wall that did this as business they tend to buy brother young slaves. They will raise them and then sell them later at a profit when they grow older almost like investment property, right? The ended up owning thirty two slaves including children because of their wealth and the positive Chinese in America. Take Wong says the twins were able to position themselves as honorary whites as a north Carolinian. I'm really really proud of the fact that Magritte grandpa could come and settle down there as an aide. Asian Chinese heritage and make a successful life for him sale. I'm not proud of the fact that they slave. That's not a source of pride. But we have to recognize that that point in time in history. That's how you got work done on a large farm earlier, treat it and the like slaves soot me. And now the table is tend now their master slaves the victimize becoming the victimize her. Yes. Absolutely. After ABRAHAM LINCOLN was elected president in eighteen sixty the nation was thrown into crisis and the twins. Once again became a convenient literary device for journalists. The New York Tribune wrote Chang resolved to sever the union with anger, which declared to be no longer worth preserving. But this wasn't brother against brother. The twins were United in their allegiance to the south. They sent two of their sons off to war and converted their fortune into confederate currency and ultimately disastrous decision. Financially. So there are no choice only one major asset left, which is the conjoined body. And that's why the decided to go back on the road again after many years. In their mid fifties. Now forced to return for a grueling five years to the life. They thought they'd left behind. They briefly teamed up with P T Barnum whom the deeply mistrusted they did a stint with a traveling circus in Europe was humiliating. And then Chang a lifelong drinker suffered a stroke, and they came home to North Carolina. Even in their final years Chang and couldn't escape the spotlight. I think there's something very sweet about the fact that in order to negotiate the world they had to put their arms around each other's shoulders. The such a great vote. Yes. I love that. That's my friend. Dr John lapook. He CBS news is senior medical correspondent. He's giving me some perspective on life for the twins. Must have been like when you're doing something just even just walking up on a curb that take split second timing. How did they do that? Okay. Now, we're gonna lift our left leg. Now, we're gonna lift the right leg, but after Chiang had a stroke and returned to North Carolina and had to drag him around quite literally for the next four years. Can you imagine? I mean, they were told from what I read that. If one of them died that they'd have to try to separate the two of them ASEP right away in order to for the other person to have a chance now. The odds of that happening had a be zero back, then I mean, they couldn't do it when they were healthy. One morning after a particularly cold night and son came into his father's bedroom. His uncle Chang was dead. Hang was still alive tach to a corpse net. Corpses probably pretty quickly getting cold. I cannot imagine them. And is like, and so when I think about Chang'an, and I think about those final moments of hang is brother has died in. And now the clock is ticking not only is it ticking. But he's having two things happen, simultaneously physically. He's getting weaker split pressures. Probably dropping he's probably getting infected septic from the talks something's happening, physical pain pain. And he knows he's dying maybes feeling cold and emotionally emotionally. And you just wonder what is less thoughts were if he was able to think. Surrounded by family would live for another few hours, his wife and children rubbing his arms and stretching his legs. I mean like there is a ticking clock. It's just it's it's like a horror movie harm movie, but you wonder for them. They live sixty two years. They were able to actually have a life. Right. It's a miracle that even had a life at home. Oh, I wouldn't want to have been in their shoes. But it's remarkable. The brothers died on January seventeenth eighteen seventy four there. Obituary made the front page of newspapers across the country in-depth they were celebrated and once again exploited a public. Autopsy was performed in Philadelphia. Doctors discovered that the brothers. Livers were connected indeed. They wouldn't have survived separation surgery in the mid nineteenth century today. They could have been separated John Luke says without question. Doctors had promised the grieving widows to return the bodies intact. Instead Chang were shipped back with some of their internal organs removed. You can still see their conjoined livers on display at Philadelphia's mood or museum. Eventually they were laid to rest in a double wide casket with a single headstone in a cemetery in mount airy. But it's to the village in Thailand where their story began that their descendants recently traveled. We were under the bus one day and disappointed. Oh, gosh. That looks like the Blue Ridge mountains for Alec shake and nine other descendants, including her cousin, Robin crave wasn't emotional experience. Sisters. They didn't make it back. But idea told me all about it at the reunion. Here's alex. I just felt a connection of knowing that part of my blood part of my genetic makeup DNA started in this river in this town. Oh, a little, but with my great grandfather sailing, duck eggs, how cool is that Homer? Bunker is a descendant on the anxiety before we went on the trip. Listen, you'll be treated royally, and that can be interpreted number ways. And when we got there is they pointed out we were genuinely treated royally from the time we arrived at the airport. Goodness. Largely forgotten in their adopted country. The twins have superstar status in Thailand. A lady was brought to tears from meeting me on just little Robin Kramer from North Carolina. They have this huge park. And the center of the par is an enormous statue of the Siamese twins and one around the memorial and read the inscriptions or whatever. And at that point. Hey, I need to write a song about this I- tomor. You can't tease us away. Yeah. Would you like to hear my g I thought? Two precious little Siamese, boys. Ing Enchaine born to bring the world. So Minhaj always may eleven eighteen eleven was the date of their rival attached to the chest. They struggle for survival. Why do you think they're story matters? Oh my gosh. America was always the beacon of the place where somebody come and build a successful life, and they came here with nothing. In fact, day themselves were in effect. The twins decided we're going to go off and creator. I am business in our own entertainment and said they worked really really hard. I mean, we talk a lot about people with disabilities. They had the ultimate disability. So synagogue credible. Inspiring American immigration story. You know, it's really not weird at all at some of the family members used to be self conscious about being descended from the twins who isn't self conscious about your family when when you're a kid, I remember being afraid that people would find out that I call my mother, my Nita instead of mom, she's Colombian. I know it sounds silly. But I was afraid I'd get made fun of that. It would Mark me as different I outgrew that. Now, I'm happy to let you know that I call her mummy. I still do. Today. The bunkers have a lot to be proud of Alex sink, whose real name is Adelaide. She's named after her. Great grandmother was the democratic nominee for governor of Florida in two thousand ten another descendant. Caroline Shaw recently won the Pulitzer prize for music and the late Caleb. Hanes was a decorated veteran of both world wars and every summer a whole bunch of bunkers descend on mount airy to celebrate the twins as well. They should Channing were extraordinary. They may not have been perfect far from it. But they had courage. You would have thought there would have been at least one episode of the Andy Griffith show. -cluded that not into that referred to Chang. An, but that's that's just proves.

The decline of the American TV father and the rise of Doofus Dad

"On today's episode ongoing to finally explain to you why I named this podcast and my blog doofus Dad. This is the doofus Dad podcast exploring the fairly dangerous and much-maligned state of life and Fatherhood in the twenty first century. Hosted by me Mark Johnson. I. Recently realized that since launching the doofus Dad brand some three years ago I've never really given a good explanation of why I named it that. It has been suggested by me that large swaths of the population representing literally tens of people lay awake in bed fretting over this conundrum. If I only knew what Johnson means by Doofus Dad I may be able to actually sleep through the night they whisper allowed into the darkness startling their snoring spouse into a nearly indetectable change of position. So to keep the marital peace among these vast uncountable for a baby numbers up confused citizens, I've decided to explain myself. I was essentially raised by two fathers my real biological one. and. The fictional Andy Taylor of mayberry. Both how my dad and Andy modeled for me a tradition of strength discipline caring in common sense within the institution of fatherhood. Aside from the fact that I had two older siblings and the world's greatest mom I was essentially opie. I making an assumption here that you one of my ten listeners are familiar with the Andy Griffith show. Somewhere, along the way America's view of fatherhood has changed, it seems to me. Now I'm no sociologist. But my guess is that this has something to do with these social in gender revolutions of the sixties and Seventies. At some point the tradition of a dad serving as the quote, unquote leader of the family has become frowned upon as if a strong and capable father and equal rights for women are mutually exclusive. Now you have to be at least nearing the age at which you start receiving aarp direct mail to remember when DADS weren't routinely portrayed as dufuses in popular media especially TV sitcoms and commercials. Back in the sixties and early seventies, there were quite a few shows that featured a single dad like the aforementioned Andy Griffiths show mayberry Rfid Bonanza and others. In, most cases, the father character was usually the solver of the problems created by others and displayed a strong sense of morality and again common sense. But Hollywood began turning this model on its head in the late seventies to the pointed which today the Doofus Dad has become standard television fair. The website WWW DOT TV tropes dot com list, the quote Unquote Bumbling Dad as its own trope stating born out of the Sitcom dysfunctional family he's a deliberate subversion of the standard fifties father now. So ubiquitous the older trope is nearly forgotten. Although he's clever at times, he's not usually allowed to be smart. He's Lazy Gluttonous and has miscellaneous other glaring vices. His children may love him but they often don't respect him however, he is still a sympathetic character. The source of his charm is his complete love and loyalty to his family. Even if the main way he shows it is by fixing problems he caused himself. Just think about nine out of every ten TV commercials that you see on a regular basis that feature both a mother and a father. Is The dad solving the problem or creating it? You know the answer in almost every case the dad who is inevitably less attractive than the mom is creating a problem that his wife solves. Now by pointing this out I am in no way lessening the role of motherhood I just never understood why society specifically popular media has found it necessary to elevate the role of women by demeaning that of men. Why not elevate both Erica Scherer, and forgive me if I'm mispronouncing that last name a professor in the Department of Communications at the university. Of Massachusetts, Amherst wrote this in her recent article. Wi- are Sitcom Dad's still so inept which I found it a website called the conversation quote for our study we identified thirty four top rated family centered sitcoms that aired from nineteen eighty to twenty seventeen and randomly selected to episodes from each. Next, we isolated five hundred and seventy eight scenes in which the fathers were involved in disparagement humor, which means the dads either made fun of another character or were made fun of themselves. then. We studied how often Sitcom dads were shown together with their kids within the scenes in three key parenting interactions giving advice setting rules or positively or negatively reinforcing their kids behavior. We wanted to see whether the interaction made the father look humorously foolish. Showing poor judgment being incompetent or acting childishly interestingly, fathers were shown in fewer parenting situations in more recent sitcoms. And when fathers were parenting, it was depicted as humorously foolish in just over fifty percent of the relevant scenes in the two thousands in twenty tens. Compared with eighteen percent in the nineteen eighties and thirty one percent in the nineteen nineties sitcoms. At least within scenes featuring disparagement humor, Sitcom audiences more often than not are still being encouraged to laugh at Dad's parenting missteps and mistakes unquote. Wow so according to her study, dads are getting worse not better in the view of traditional media the don't get me wrong. I enjoy the comedy associated with Doofus dance like homer. Simpson Tim. The toolman tailor Al Bundy and Ray Baroni of everyone loves Raymond as much as the next guy. But I also think that this relentless barrage of incompetent television fathers has acted our modern view of fatherhood in a decidedly negative way. By naming my blog doofus Dad I was poking a little fun at this stereotype. All humans are at times dufuses. However I don't really believe that anyone classification of humans are consistently dumb or incompetent as Hollywood seems to think of fathers. I often refer to my wife Holly the brains of the operation and used self deprecating humor to make my points which are usually meant to be entertaining and nothing else. It is perfectly accurate to say that holly runs our household in many ways including almost anything that involves numbers math and somebody getting a shot at the doctor's office. But it is also accurate that I am generally viewed within my family as the quote unquote leader of the Johnson clan and I take that responsibility very seriously. In this way, although I can certainly make mistakes I don't view myself as a doofus. I think most dads are closer to the character played by Tom Cruise in the two thousand, five big budget film war of the worlds although cruise's character. Ray Ferrier was predictably divorced because a strong successful two parent family has long since fallen out of favor with Hollywood scriptwriters. Farrier was nonetheless competent, fairly smart in fiercely protective of his children. Although certainly fallible he would do whatever it took to keep them safe in the face of a deteriorating world, even at the risk of alienating himself from them at times. In a more figurative sense I think this is where we're at. The Andy Taylor's and how Johnson's of twenty twenty are doing their level best to raise highly functioning moral kids in the face of what often seems like a crumbling immoral. Society. Sometimes. I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to fight off giant brain sucking three legged extraterrestrials. This I believe is the responsibility of today's fathers. Not Hollywood's doofus DAD's.

I Feigned a Faint (with David and Eve Dastmalchian)

"Starving out of there. Hey, what's up guys and girls around the world? It's me your friendly neighborhood, Steve. And it is it is. April sixteenth. Another noisy area. It's April sixteen. It's your that shit. It's fucking garbage truck, which means. Steve is parked in his car. Still in riverside high. It's another week has gone by. And I am still in riverside still looking after my mom and occasionally my sister. My mom slowly getting stronger. Like, I said to table sixteenth. It's Tuesday two thousand nineteen. Not a lot has changed. Other than the fact that I'm getting used to this which is weird. I just like I've lived here now for two weeks at my mom's house, and it's just like this is what the way it is. Now. I'm still the only only person taking care of her. So that's something. She's getting stronger, though, I can tell you know, when she first heard her hip slash back slash leg. If she needed to go bathroom, it took her forever to get up out of bed and she had a Walker to get to her bathroom. Toilet is probably twenty feet from the bed her bathrooms right next to bedroom. Obviously. And she could just barely move really gingerly with the Walker would take her forever to get to the bathroom, and I would have to walk behind her. Just in case she fell like I was walking behind her. You know with my arms kinda out just ready to catcher if she fell. Now, she's getting there by yourself. I don't have to be in the room when she goes to the bathroom. And like last night we were. Other truck man, I thought I pulled over and quiet. Area in a pair. I was wrong. Last night. We were watching TV. Every it's I'm in groundhog day. It's literally the same thing every day. I get up. I, you know, check my Email go to the bathroom shower brush my teeth, whatever. Then I go downstairs and get food for my mom. I have breakfast for my mom, and I bring it up on a tray and get her all situated and then. You know, go back and do some writing my computer emails calls whatever I need to do because I'm away. And then I go visit my sister for a while. And then it's time to come back and get lunch for my mom, and then do some more work, and then dinner for my mom. And then dinner I sit in a room with her. And we watch TV. We watch jeopardy than wheel of fortune. And then we watch an hour of the Andy Griffith show. And then it's bedtime. And it's literally every day. It's groundhog day. I wake up, and it's the same fucking thing. Same thing different food. I try to shake it up. God. But yes last night, we were watching TV we're watching any Greta mom gets up to go to the bathroom gets right up. Stands up Ravs the Walker just jets to the bathroom like she's really fast. Now, she so much stronger. So that I can tell a difference. But her knees still hurts her new, and it's the Neil that she had rebuilt. She had knee replacement surgery like four four years ago. So she has an appointment at the orthopedist on Friday to get that look that X Ray, I'll be taking her to the orthopedist for that. By the way. I don't. I like being able to help my mom. I like that. I live close enough that I can help her. It's not a chore. But I am starting to worry about the fact that. I'm gonna have to leave to work soon. You know, I have to leave in one week. I'm going to Austin for eight days. And then I get back from Austin. I'm having a molar removed like. Should has to be significantly different within a week. I mean, she's already a lot stronger. So hopefully, we figure something out also. You know, her doctor said, you know, she qualifies have physical, therapists and nurse come visitor at home once in a while. And so the past week since I talked last physical therapists came out one day, a nurse came out another. But it was literally like. The physical therapist came out would just paperwork had my mom signed much shit and just her stuff. Or does it hurt? How bad does it hurt on a scale of one to ten baba? And then he laughed. He didn't do anything. He didn't watch eating say. Can you get up and walk with the Walker? I need to like he just Astra bunch of questions and then left and then the next day the nurse came did the exact same thing. And then let like no actual help was done. I guess they have to evaluate. To see you know, what she qualifies for and all that. But I mean that was last the end of last week. And here we are at the beginning of this week. And no one's been back. She's not getting any kind of physical therapy. So. Jesus christ. My sister really fucked up by falling down the stairs. Like she lives at home. She could have she could have been sharing the duties of taking care of my mom, especially when I leave but my sister's in this rehab facility, they haven't even gotten to her knee at all her rehab. So far are physical therapy has been getting her up and moving around with a Walker. So my sister's getting around with a Walker wheelchair and getting the bathroom by yourself. Now. That's all great. But they have done nothing for her knee. They haven't starting. They haven't starting. They haven't started, you know, any kind of mobility. It's still in a splint. She hasn't bent it in two weeks. So I don't know when that happens, and I did talk to busy a lot of you left messages saying busy dislocated knee. Busy. I called. You know, us busy what the recovery was. Like, she didn't remember. I think I was off crutches in a couple of weeks. I think. It's different for everybody. Some people dislocation kneeing tear, ligaments and. So who fucking knows this. I have I really have nothing new to report. Which is why? In about eight minutes. I'm gonna call David Dastmaltchan who's been on one. A couple episodes of this podcast. Great guest. And I think I'm also going to his wife eve is also going to get on the phone eve who you remember did the podcast and talked about her seizures that she gets when she throws up. They have a great story. They were both in Italy and Dave got sick. And it's kind of phenomenal story for the past month and a half or so. We keep saying Dave has to get out here. And talk about the story. It's pretty amazing. And so I figured there's no better time. I would rather talk in person. But who knows when I'm going to get out of here. I've been to L A once I went Saturday this past Saturday, and it was literally just to drive out get my mail. Make sure everything was cool at the apartment and then drive back was in. I was in the lay away I was in LA for a total of about forty five minutes. And it sucked because it was shit shit. Traffic going out there and shit traffic. Coming back. It was it was about two hours both ways so four hours of driving forty five minutes of being in my apartment. I don't get this. I've got a lot of great Email replies. From you guys. Which I will be sharing the next time. The next time. I do a solo episode which will probably be next week. Shit. Shit, man. I figure stuff out with my life. I am just running in place. I'm on a treadmill right now. Keep running and I'm getting nowhere. On the bright side. You know, if you follow me on my Instagram. You know, I'm a photographer. It's my hobby. I love doing it. But I always, you know, I have a great camera. Really great camera which helps I think I have a good I which helps but I always just upload my photos from my camera to my phone and edit them on my phone for Instagram. And I've never really took taken into account that when it's uploading from my phone to my or from camera to my phone. It's uploading them in the lower resolution like smaller file size. So I- edit these photos to look really cool. But if I wanted to print and blow them up, it wouldn't work because they're so small the file sizes are so small so I've been meaning to start editing on my computer, my laptop I have light room, which is a phenomenal editing photo editing software, and I've had it for forever. But I just never figured out how to use it. It's not super intuitive. Nothing makes sense on it. So it's not like you can just sit there and kinda figure should out. And so I bought a couple of weeks ago. I bought this really extensive twenty hour tutorial like, it's twenty classes. Guy. This guy taught these classes there's a website called creative live in. It's just all tutorials on on the arts, like, not just photography, but music, everything. And so I bought a light room to to'real. It's twenty different classes. They're all about an hour each. So it's twenty hours of just info on this editing software that I've been wanting to learn and so whenever I have free time usually at night after my mom goes to bed. I just sit up on my computer learning how to use. Light room. And it's really working. You know, if you look at my last few photos on. Instagram on my Instagram at Steve AG, their photos that were edited in light room. And I'm already noticing a huge huge difference. Very happy with it. I don't know. I'm telling you this on. Medical podcasts. I'm just trying to waste time until I call Dave and eve, we agreed on noon. And but I wanted to get on here. And update you guys with my past week of. Living in the inland empire. For those you don't know in southern California. There's an area called the inland empire. And it's east of Los Angeles. It's between Los Angeles and the harsh desert's of Palm Springs and palm desert, and it it inland empire consists of a bunch of different cities, like riverside, and San Bernardino, and Redlands and Antero and. I believe upland Montclair, and Clermont is just a bunch of towns. It's like it's the valley. It's like the valley in Los Angeles only farther away from Los Angeles and a lot more drugs. There's a lot of meth out here. There's this really cool lake near my mom's house. It's a park with his big lake. It's Fairmont park. It's really cool. And I've gone there. A couple times try and take photos, but it's literally like the the park is just overrun with like. Crack heads like you see people doing drugs dealing drugs. Like, it's crazy. I just drive in and I make one lap around the lake and I'm like, I don't feel like getting onto my car here. So. I did go. There's a there's a place not far from my mom's. It used to be a factory that made these little paper cups, not Dixie cups. But I think they were called lily lily was the company that made them, and when I was a kid, my my really good friend next door neighbor. His dad worked at that factory. And it was I thought it was so cool because in the front of the building there's a gigantic replica of a plastic Cup like thirty five feet tall. If you look it up online at says sixty eight feet tall, which is one hundred percent, not true. Because that's the size of like a six story built six or seven story. The sings maybe thirty feet tall. But it's giant in its claim to fame is like the world's largest paper Cup, even though it's made out of cement. So I never really understood that I went and took some pretty cool photos, which I'll be posting soon of that. I'm just driving around in my free time taking photos and learning how to edit them. All right. We can stop talking to me and call Dave dust multi in. Let's see. I let me test this out. I'll play a play voicemail from spectrum cable. This is an automated message from spectrum about an important change. And it's is if the account belonging to Steve Aji, please call it within the this. Charter to turning up. They used to be charter. And now if you are. I never mail and bills. I was pay them online and amount of town. If I forget to pay a Bill on the due date like literally the day. It's do I start getting calls from spectrum. No joke sometimes upwards of five calls a day. And it's these automated messages and. That's a tax from Dave. He's ready. And then when you pay it, it doesn't really show up all the computers. And so you keep getting five calls a day. Anyway.

No, I am hoping your mom injured sister has speedy recovery. And I'm and you're very very very, very, very, very good, son and brother, and we love you. And you're a great person. That's true. I can't argue. Yeah. All right. So I didn't really give away much other than you. And eve went to Italy, you were working on a short film, and then he flew out. And that's really all I said other than you had a fucked up. I think it's important for people to know that this is a really romantic story. It is all about the beauty of international travel, and and the beauty of of connecting with people in other cultures and other places and the in the power of gastroenteritis will it's also deals with one of my biggest fears, which is getting really sick while traveling. Yeah. It's just that decisions lead to bag away. Let's not. All you have to do is make good decisions. And you won't find yourself in this position. Here's the issues of decisions choices that we make. We take venturous. Leaps of faith that we try to overcome our fear and sometimes. Sometimes you're in go on and you're hungry, and it's the last minute before bedtime and instead of eating the simple restaurant downstairs that seem to present wonderful Milanese Italian fair you walk down to the fast food restaurants. Walk past this rest Italian restaurants. Good restaurants that is so close to our -partment that we basically share courtyard. You are too tired to stop there where talion foods can you to walk to Turkish? Charge a fast food, and I'm gonna pass the buck, and I'm gonna and I'm gonna justify passing the buck here because knowing that you were arriving in two nights to join me for our romantic excursion in Milan. I thought you know, what I'm to deny myself the pleasures of this of using restaurant. It's downstairs from our -partment because I don't wanna spoil myself for the magic of us for the first time sitting candlelit for some delicious, you know, food. So instead, I took I took a I took the took the fall I went to the Turkish fast food restaurant. High started biting into the chicken soon. Get my palate, I knew I was making a mistake. Polite. Keep chewing swallowing just ate it. All. I know I didn't actually eat it. All I took like enough rights, though that like I couldn't tell if it was because I was tired. I'd been traveling for a couple of weeks. I was exhausted. I also had a really bad cold. And so you're coming off you. You been sick for forever. Six zero birthday. Steve you with my medical mask on and this was like three weeks after that. Same. Eight that disgusting whatever it was. And then I went to work in the morning on a set. It was at the university in Milonga shooting in a more shooting in real more. Like, I was down laying on a slab smelled like just formaldehyde. Yeah. Alrighty was making great literally used for four like medical student wasn't a set. It wasn't actually a real. I mean, actual Mark doors in the wall. There is actually a drain in the middle of underneath. Abel's blood drain where they pray hose. Everything down after day of work. I Jesse clean those pipes. Like, that's your job. Log in that draft smelled it. You could smell. It was it was. So so so so day one I knew it. I I still make just started to feel really bad. And sure enough I went into the bathroom, and I just started hurling really violently felt awful. I wanted when you. When you to sound is so loud and disturbing. It is it is. It sounds unearthly. Like, I think I've heard of enough people Puka my life to know that you have any of your example, like what I don't know what you're talking about. I think my vomiting is morally oral. Normal. Is totally normal. At least average if it's not. Yeah. You know, it's I trust me. It's not it happens with such force that it someone's demonic when you. Demonic? Von it. I'm gonna record for everyone's enjoy. We'll be back on your show. I'm in this little tiny off the board toilet just just burying. You know, oh God. It was the worst. And then this PA, they the directors spoke fluent English and several of the members of the cruise spoke English really, well, but I didn't wanna bother the director in and he was wonderful in the shoot was really cool. But this this PA that was working with me. I I was saying like I'm sick. My stomach is sick. I want something because I just knew if I did get this out of my body idea. Okay. Like, he's like, okay. Okay. Okay. And he runs away for a while. And then I'm like, where's that guy? Where's that guy? I'm gonna be sick. Again. I felt so nauseated, and and he comes back with the with this, you know, with his medicine, which I just start popping like. Like. Just shit out or whatever makes settle my stomach. And I just and I take a couple and it gets worse. And I take some more and it gets worse. And then the next the next day was my final day of shootings. And now I've been taking those pills. I haven't taken a shit in like like two days at this point just a couple of times, and I've been eating trying to put food in and drinking water. So then eve gets there that night, and it was this romantic little apartment in along. And just you do the window was like romantic. That's true. There's a little today. The little Italian ratio flower shop that was the only thing now is romantic. Show. I'm already sweaty, clammy, smell, bad and Eve's. Like, okay. So the next day we get up, and I said, screw this. I'm not gonna be the sick. And I and I felt so horrible from the cold. And was my my cold that I had as well. So I went, and I took this stuff like the like behind the counter the stuff they use on breaking bad to make meth that kind of feeling like mardi gets. Yeah. Took that shit. And as a sober person. I've got to say I felt like I'd really like I was on cocaine and even I I'm like. I'm like all thousand miles an hour feeling. Great. Right. I feel great. Yeah. But you real twitchy. In a way. This is true. He was great in a way where he keeping like, oh, this is great. Please. I was just like date. And I said what Dave, you know? You don't have to talk so much. Where we were wall MO the most beautiful cathedral and the guy was playing music on the street. And I like eve I'm just this is the most incredible Beaumont. I just I'm loving this. What's wrong? Joe you so you think this is incredible. And she was like, yeah. You know, you don't have to. I think you said you don't have to talk all the time. Trying to like, a joy, peaceful beautiful moment. And you're just like, oh, this is beautiful. I think just about and I was like Jack. Meanwhile, Michael still was feeling like there was now like an entire like band of hobbits in there just breaking shit, and they will buck in the row big. They're getting ready to go to war. And I am now more doors regained. We get today. Four no shit, and you have been four days or days. And I think at one point you did show me the bus of what you've been taking. And it wasn't like it was an Italian. It wasn't English. Instead of media don't say that. It was an English said a modem on it. I didn't know got a modem helped like. Dave. But you were forty two years old. You should know. I'm sure everyone listening knows that ammonium prevents you from shitting. I've never had. I've never not wanted to before. Okay. So. That they knew what they were doing. You had been taking things to prevent that cats the bug and side is basically, so basically I had been courting my own you court yourself up and just let everything sitting side you. Fighting needs. No help doing that. Anyway. Like, okay. Is this what you want? This is what we do. So let's do that. And you're trying to like Indu he'll hill like cuisine, we go to this fancy dinner with the director who's giving ended up puking up like that. You would try to eat. And then you'd end up just vomiting it out. And what did I just the look I would get for me. You'd love this. We went out to us DNC dinner, and this guy or livers, snow kidneys kidneys face. Good. Who is sweating bullets because of food poisoning is ordering him so kid bees. And I ate all the crazies sliced meats cheeses. And I was just like. Yeah. Well, fuck it. Poor decision when in Rome or Milan. Dave just take it easy on your fruit. That was the night that all hell broke loose, by the way romance. I'm no, I'm not ashamed. And I have no shame embarrassing my wife, but like this woman was incredibly sexually frustrated. This trip was supposed to be like we have to anoint kids that never leave us alone. Like, this was our chance to like really just get out a lot of pent up. The and to say that I wasn't in like, you know, fighting form would be an understatement. I was like fetal everytime he'd go to the bed. No matter. What incredible? You know that he might be wearing I just would like feed early like curl up in sweat and mode and occasionally vomit, dude. Yeah. So then we I didn't know you were puking that much. Yeah. Yeah. It was gross puke. So that's. At night when he got really you actually got really worried. Well, yeah. Because at that point we had gotten used them laxative. And I who goals ten you die from taking to Alexis and the internet, basically. Absolutely, yes. Because you could get dehydrated and not even the laxity. Yet. So so we'll see after the ammonium like two days later. He was like topping all of these lasted. Oh shit. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Because then I was like something's gonna gotta make shit this because I feel like there is a a brick of death floating somewhere in my large tested of just a brick of just satanic demonic born out of hell death floating in there, and because you're in so much pain, and we could not get on a ten hour airplane. Right. I mean have I've it so it was pretty clear and because you weren't sweeping this. You're so uncomfortable that we had to take you to the hospital. How did you find? I don't remember, Steve by the way, I was in a bathroom like, you know, apartment in Milan, hurling and eve I could hear on the phone with people. I think even known. Yes. How was basically like, oh, this is what people do in Italy. We just go to ers like there's no urgent care just ers, and that seems to be the case we went in there it just most people just like regular whole over. There was like six in the morning. Yeah. It was very early. Yeah. And it was a nice crowd of people with like the range from like a headache the way to and there was some women screaming. I remember that. Remember that? To know screaming about every quarter it so I'll have to play in Italian interpreter can help us which scream about. But it was not nice. It was it was just like totally an American ER situation. Put more is just grows and homeless people a lot of homeless people using the one bathroom that was right next to me where I kept together to in this one guy get entire bath, shower and other situations, and we were there for a while. And we realized to like as people were coming in. If you were either a little like a kid or somebody that had, you know, there was a scale of importance, and we were not high on the scale. So we're there for a long time, and there was no reception in there. Eventually you knew to use your acting abilities to help us out. What? Dave was just like to. I do something. Like, it's it's time that we do something. I don't know how long we're going to be here. So they put sane type stains into its own. And he likes shows the guy because of course, no matter where you go in Milan. People speak English except for the hospital. Could be like except for when I was looking for laundry. And when I was trying to get to e are trying to get get help at the hospital. No one spoke English when we needed them to. So the guy checking us in. Not a word, you, you didn't even know. Universal words. He didn't seem to know. So I typed think into my into my translator. And I held it up for him. And he was looking at me like sideways like he didn't really get what I was trying to say. So I think a fade. I like I like. Through. Eight. I rolled back in my head a little bit. I kinda Kwach the counter I took a knee and. Sure enough. They came running out from behind righties. Yeah. No it works. Hey, man. If you don't use it, you lose it. So if you're going to be an actor. So they took him. But then they separated us. They would not let me go with him. They pulling me through this like double door and Eve's coming with all of our stuff, and they forcefully RA. Like an x. Next stopped her. And that was because you you you were you were you had pretended to faint you were not pretending to be very ill. Right. So they obey. And I oughta panicking. Maine. So yeah, they I get taken back and I'm put on a like a little a stretcher situation in like in like a holding area. We're I'm not kidding. There was like a homeless guy that you make you gotten in an accident sitting up and kept wondering Ray away from one stretcher, then there was a person that seemed very sick with flu like symptoms in the other one. And then there was an old man in a full on the Whealy stretcher that they brought in for like an emerging like like a like an ambulance dead. I mean, he was he was dying at the end of life said he like had the sheet pulled all the way up to the top of his base. And he's kids were just crying. Oh, and his mouth was open wide. You know what I mean? Like he had to like the head tilt back to the mouth open wide. This is it I was just feet away from this. Just laying on my side Shiv 'boring. And by the way, everyone who worked in this place was out of like a hammer film. There was no like were all like just kinda scary or like kind of mean and gruff and like. So this. Comes to me like. Keys with keys wife Nikkei's. And I was like why I need a doctor and apparently eve couldn't find the key to our if you let that apartment door shut without the keys, you could not get back into it. That was that. We were warned like never lock yourself. Totally app. Yeah. I just wouldn't they took away. I completely panicked. So I just I was I had to keep the whole time. But I was I think. That you had had them. So no, Dave like wind got there. No paranoid. We worried about teas are gonna make your life worse. But I just knew that I have to get to someplace that. I could communicate with you. So I left the hospital to get back to our place to get on wifi. So we could actually communicate. And this is the part of the story your listeners where I would like to introduce a little concept that I love and hold dear. And it helps me make it to life called the silver lining. I believe that all all of that happen in life. Always have there's always enough side. There's always a silver lining. There's always some. That's the writer in you that wants to write in like the joyful moment where I am more of a realist. And I just think that's something. Just and they don't have over lining. Things could be bad. I beg to differ. All right. Right. Well to those of you listening. My battery literally just died on my recorder. So I had run across the street to liquor store batteries. Let's call Dave and eve back to those listening. You have no idea this even happen. But it's been real stressful. Couple minutes for me. Here we go. Yeah. I'm so sorry about that. Hey, good. We call cliffhanger in the business will it's not a cliff hanger to the listeners because it literally is just a seam of micro-second were in hap-. Just ends. And then. They have no idea to even have an until I just said something, but yet my battery's dying. And I watched them as you were telling your story from the ER, I was just sitting there watching the icon of my battery just go lower and lower, please. Anyway. So yeah. Saying there was a silver lining. Always a silver lining, fair listener. And don't listen to my wife. Oh, I really respect and honor her in all regards, except for the fact that she really believed that some circumstances are just shit do too. That's okay. It something's as just just bad. And they don't you don't have to find the druid in it. Not cross. Yeah. Well, here we go. Are you guys ready? Overlying? It's like I'm in Dante's six realm of the inferno, by the way. Supposed to be our vacation the first time, we're in Italy together for somewhere in Europe alone, without the kids the kids in UAE like all these things where. Pace full six just put right under the bed. She. Entire suitcase suitcase full of sex stuff should be the title of this episode. Essay loved examining that bag. How's that risk just for this? So this is what you think the silver lining to, you know. No, no, no. There's more silver linings, but let's get to the first one. So as I've mentioned before I have been, you know, be rated in talked at in a language that I don't understand. And they told me I'm not saying, it's their responsibility, you're in Italy. But I'm in their country. That's fine. But I have been not very politely handled. Let's say that much, and I am dying in my opinion. I am watching that old man with the sheet pulled up ready as you go. I was having these horrible hallucinatory visions of eve finally being like like led back there to like, I me or like have to like, you know, the call. Steve I'm sorry. David. He went to Milan and guide either. So I. I was doing weird things in my brain like our friend ill on. I was saying long alone lawn in Milan, I was just going to weird strange places. And then I get a tap on the show, the nurses gonna die. Don't we? We're doctor, and I was like, okay. Great. Great. Great. So I try to stand up. I could barely stand up like limping my way back to this office, very tight little office. They go in. I looked up at the nurse. She's like laying down on this table, and she's just right out of like a skin Amax after dark circa nineteen ninety seven. Like. Woman Italian dairy. Nice very. The eyes and she's in her like nurse's outfit. And then she starts joking with the doctor or the doctor is just. Right out of like a movie like they're like two models. They didn't seem like real doctors very. I know like all these like teenage fantasies of mine. Start coming true because they're having fully nations on your body. And and then I'll admit it was kind of painful, but I was still like had a little bit of a smile on my face it in the back of my mind. Heave me dams. There's a silver lining to this moment. Again, major language barrier. Doctor just not really understanding, and I had to like, you know, do like charades like. Beings. As no poo poo lot of q-q. And I keep adding like an on the end of everywhere because I think that makes it sound more eve is like mortified when I would do it out in the city. I'd be like. Poop poop. Yeah. I know. I'm Noah Noah, Noah pool, by the way. I remember you said you were saying laundry when you're looking for laundry luxury. That's. By the way. Let's take a side note to say, the Dave didn't pack and closed for the trip. So now instead of enjoying the very similar amount of healthy time, we have to look at these ancient things will looking laundryman on which by the way as we look as we looked it up. It's not far off. It's actually Latvia. Not one. Him. Like, he's crazy because we shouldn't be looking for a laundromat in the first place. We're in Milan by new shirt, or I don't know how can close your suitcase, and he also this is the same moment that he wanted to like of beat movie, and I was like David could you be more extra? More work. I understand that you're dying. You're not feeling well, but now I'm looking for a laundry. Mat end of beats moody like news wash you married. It. My silver lining in the back of the ER with my new friends, and then they take the just the the way they jet other nurse comes in and just real roughly search jab at me and taking lots of they want to take blood tests. They wanna they also want to make sure I don't have impacted dowels. So then they they draw this blood. They leave the new in my arm. They send me up to the the x Ray tech. I'm laying next to it was very it was again that whole like really like I was all crammed into like little like it was like the starting gate of horse race me, and like three other people on stretchers, and there's one woman who was going through treatments for to be very very terrible illness old man who had fallen and was bleeding, and they were X-raying him. And then a young guy who was just. Complaining to his mom about something in talian. And I and I was like. Annoyed. So like how come his mom gets to be here in my wife? Can't yeah. Weird. They finally pushed me into the x Ray area to get my abdomen. You know, X Rayed and the guy. She kind gets me to stand up and put my hand over my head, and he's trying to x-ray may my chest in my in my abdomen. And and he's trying to say what I realized after was don't breathe like, hold your breath. Yeah. This guy was next to the next to the reception is that they were the two worst. When it came to any form of communication, even even if I'm talking to someone and I don't speak the language. I feel like I do a better job of this. So what he was doing was standing back in his little booth hitting the like x Ray button and go and yelling at me believe. And I was like what reading and he's like, no, no. And I was like, no, I'm so then he comes running back out to me. And he's like, no you a an he's like shows me demonstrates holding breath. You want me to not free. Okay. Tau? You got it. Good holding the breath. And then he lays down in these laying down. He's like you'll America yet. And he's like, my friend live in California. And I was like, oh, I live in in California. It's like, oh, my friend that he leaving Sherman hoax, and I was like Sherman hosts, oh Sherman oaks, I live. I live by Sherman oaks. I live. You don't make. Ricki Ricki raking. He's like. Rickie where the university in Sherman oaks, you know, really like, it's it's kind of a big place, man. I don't. So he takes x rays. I weighed about another hour now, I have no idea where eve is I haven't heard or been able to communicate with her for a couple of hours. I get down to the doctor in the byu that that beautiful pair again. And it wasn't a hallucination. It was real. So anyway. Weird hallucinations might for you and into the skin Amax. Head down and like a plastic steps. Go. Were they wearing leather. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No. This is all who. Over lining. Hold on. His like. The doctor just says like you're fine. You're okay. Like, you can go, and I I haven't been treated at all. And I I guess I got some peace of mind getting all this blood work back, and knowing that I did not have in fact impacted dowels, but I was like, yeah. He weren't the Eye Radio. All so, we at least knew that you were that you were like, we're not going and that was enough to get you mentally to when we go get you an enema. Eve at this at the as she gets what restaurant she was eating at when I found her the Italian restaurant downstairs, you had the one that I should have gone to in the first place twice beaten there. Most times. I find her and she was all like happy. Obviously that I wasn't dead and that they were gonna keep me for two days. And and they and she's like what did they do for you? And I was like no I got a finger of my. But that's about it. And she was like right come on. So we she got me a. We go to you. Liberties. Andries in this marriage. But you didn't you did that yourself do myself those to embarrassed and then. Like, a brick and short China, and we were in this beautiful old apartment in Milan. And soon as I went to the bathroom. It was like I just saw that that new horror movie in the conjuring universally the the curse of love there. Ain't love ROY ONA ONA. It was like that like when the demons close and all of a sudden the wall start rattling and like the windows like opening close. Into like might by started to evacuate itself. Finally. And he was like how do I mean? There was such a velocity of wind that winter department like all the door slammed really quick. The demon. Oh my God. Wait, how much water do you push up in there? When you give yourself an enema. This thing was about hind. Was it looked like it looked like the size of like a prescription bottle? And I don't think it was just water. I think it's it's God. No, no, it's stimulant or something in there that makes you go. I don't know muscle relaxer. Like three ounces wherever my big scene. So so so then silver lining ready for silver linings playbook. I'm gonna publish a new novel called the silver linings playbook for travelers David me. No. Hi. Time with eve on this. So we I felt totally redo recharge ready rock and we headed back out into Milan. And we had a magical wonderful. Time killing. Rest of the time that we passed out. That's true. So we did get a couple of hours in the lines that were really magical and beautiful. Yeah. Highs the low lows. Remember, if there's anything you take away from this when you are traveling in foreign land, and you don't speak the language, and there seems to be totally capable if not exceptional restaurant within immu. Amir few feet of your front door go there. Just go there go there just go there. And if there's a shady looking best food joint down the down the road that isn't even the the the cuisine of the culture in which you are currently hanging out just walk right by just keep going. Just keep looking around going dingus come on. Hi. Pay food that will you you gas or Dr grows? But you had gastroenteritis which turns out was fueled by the cold medicine that you have exacerbated by math that I took made everything along words, everything the moody and to the cold medicine amplifying, your so. Mistake. Other than the food was the ammonium. Blame the PA lead. By the way, guys. Here's the silver lining in all. There's no silver linings here. Other than I get a great podcast. Added another weird pecan poop and Surrey to the smelting archive because we are just full of them unlimited supply you go.

Place Yeah now Boyce George Mir. They're built this city hall with his own bare hand hand well, there was a problem with the monkey on.

Statue in me so yeah I think he did George had a realistic looking prosthetic, but let's talk about it. Let's talk about something more happy lack. What's in this city all? This is no ordinary city hall. Take a look through this door. Very fancy, this is city hall where the Council Chambers. There's nothing but that big ballroom dance book and that Jukebox see the Jukebox in the corner. Hey the Everley. Rub their breadth there. That's weird. Elvis Parsley in this town. We don't need a traditional city hall because we make all of our decisions collectively during the weekly town dance. You guys dance. We dance our way to consensus. ooh, Oh, speaking of dances sick of the moonwalk! Have to come with a partner Ou Yang. How do you mean? Are you boys single I am? We've been hoping some single boys would come along because we have a whole row in our lovely suburban rows of houses dedicated to this single ladies, these are the purchased cleanest awesome single ladies. You ever laid eyes on Max Max. Yes, Wilson. I did hear that. Yes, thank lady! Here with big smiles, no doubt I'm a single guy you are can't dance voice before you get excited. Make sure note the street with all the single ladies. That's ELM strict. Don't go on Walnut Street Elm Street has the wholesome single ladies. Let's just leave it at that on. Making a note, so you said this town hall is just the one big ballroom, but it looks like there's a set of stairs in the back. The kid you name it is. Either how many? Hairs and go downstairs stairs. Good down the stairs. Why Does David? We. Keep Utah I did see the kid, but then did he go. Did you go down. Wasn't he telling you not to go down the stairs surrounding, you went downstairs. I was looking at the stairs the whole time because he was talking about the stairs with such a creepy little voice mode. What are you doing over there nothing? Oh, you were looking at the stairs. That's a special room downstairs now. It's kind of a surprise, so if you want to go down there, you have to go down one at a time. You want to go downstairs. Boys Good Yeah, I think we should just check out the rest of the town. Yeah, that'd be. Disappointed, but maybe later all right, let's see the. Boys have any questions. Oh I! Got Question, so if I was say I would like to. Hear. How does that work like can I? Buy a house right with money, or is it a lot? Uh drafted hug a lot of people to get. Basically. Basically, you have to build your way up some. Equity, okay, and you do that by kissing the pretty single ladies on the cheek, and then the other cheek, and then the notes, and then the foreign. Basically you just kissed those ladies as much as you possibly can, and then you hug and kiss and hug in hugs more and as you do that, your smile, equity buildup, and eventually on the outskirts of town. You'll find a little house with placard in front of it with your name. I do that now. You may wonder do these single ladies want to kiss me? The answer is yes, they do yes, they do they all want to kiss you, but we do have a protocol where you ask them I. Oh, right right. Yeah, that makes sense I wouldn't just randomly go up and gives lady. Bro. GIFT TO BE President. Boys let's walk to the park here and we'll go across to that building over there. Okay, this is such a nice place incredible. I love this town. Right cycle picnicking over there. I mean well I would almost want to move here. Yeah, maybe you should. Maybe I should. You're not really seeing anybody, right? That's streaming. My prospects would be better. Yeah like IT I. I mean but again I I'm really enjoy my travels we'll be. You could set up shop here Mr. could anyone sleepy live next to each other? We could out of your basement I can be my own pavement. Wait I could be on the first floor of my own house, and not being my baby, its onboard coming boys. Yeah, Oh, yeah, right behind you. Is there a festival going on just like a normal Tuesday the park. This is the Tuesday festival we have, do they festival? Every Tuesday right tried before the Wednesday festival right after the Monday festival. The band thing that's every day Tuesday. The Tuesday ban. On Tuesdays and you can see that they really enjoy playing those instruments. We can't. Actually I was one of the first things we noticed Blair. He's been here having that's how his smile got so bad. Smiled. There's Fred hold on. I got go say hi to Fred. Gaffe they're like kind of the only ones swimming right? WHO's staring off as a very blank stares there and walking around that pole with the ribbons? But really snowing like does not look like they're having fun. No, that's not what I imagined festival. Now. All the kids here are a little off weird. It didn't really strike when I saw them wanted time. In those other buildings, banality sued them altogether. The playground continue notice. They're all wearing shades of gray. I almost no color at ground. A why aren't they like hanging out with their parents? Where are parents? I? Don't know there seems to be nobody paying attention i. mean everything so ability here in the seventies. Don't care. There's no concerns. Worries right? Maybe that's what perfect kids look like some. Yeah. We've just ask Charlie breath. I'm sure there's an explanation. That's true here spectrum. Let's ask Him Voice Fred such a Nice Guy Love. He's kind of new here to town, but he's getting the hang of in. Our always feel like you're getting the hang of it. Right now we did have one question I guess about fire way. Will the kids here seem a little off weird well? We haven't seen the kids. The goat farm is way up on the hill, known or not young, now yellow human children. You're such kidder's. We don't have any children not here in. Home. No children, no, no people come here as adults and they do adult things. Strictly consensual adult things mind you break. You have to ask Wilson I don't know, and of course we have the idyllic pregnancies and. No way they. Pregnancies and Nokia. What what? Is it air? Is it a water watermelon beer to hang on Charlie? What do you think pregnancy is in the town library Max? There's a book and that will teach you all about it, says the birds, and the bees on the cover, the full appease. You can learn all about how pregnancies happened in what they are now. This these nice pregnant ladies go into our town doctor's office. Then you don't need takes them inside, and they come out with an even bigger smile than before. Without a Baby. Babies Year there on. The playground right over there full full of children. Walk around in circles with the ribbons and going very slowly on that Eric around. Maybe next we're GONNA. Go see Dr Mars. Mars can check your eyes or check your brain. No I don't think I need anything. Check now by I'm just really curious about those kids over there. Right there in the playground. No, no children, no kids looking. What about babies would one ice cream stories? You cannot have an idyllic town with children. He's not long all right, so charlie I think he may have to excuse me for a Moment Wilson and I need to discuss cheer boys take all the time you need to discuss, but I really must insist that we go down those stairs before you leave. Remember the ones the one at a time stain holiyay yeah yeah. Excuse us here with us. Don't go far. Department here during. Every time every time it's. Not Seen Creepy okay. Check Park I. It was like Homo Perfect. Was Those league sound really Nice Yeah Yeah. Maybe I'm being too hard on towns and dimensions. This seems pretty good. I didn't want to be I. Don't think I WANNA be i. mean it was an idea but I? Really I I've material data. It'd be terrible that kids you don't need kids. Yeah, I think we should just go. Yeah, let's Let's go ahead and open this. After that get your. Let's go. Were so good were. Yeah you know nothing stopping you from pop back in here. Just for some of the candidates stood for visit, not that it because you ladies Elm Street. Anti-death. Pop in and out and stay away from the park with the. Children, let's shut the portal down before the most disturbing child makes his way through. It can't come through. I don't think so it shutting down. Okay Look Baresi shrinking shrinking and it's GonNa. Through at least nothing, go past that they don't go through the portal. Ages Come Air I'm pretty sure that's not possible I. Think you need a portal to go between dimensions every example I've seen of anyone going between dimensions. They've had some kind of portal. Pretty sure preacher. There was this one creepy, little alien type thing, the grumpy dimensional, not really sure how. How he traveled actually to be fair I'm not sure he was from another dimension at all. He Kinda Rick rolled me anyway. The point is I. Don't think the creepy children can follow us. Don't worry about it. Yeah I'm not going to have nightmares tonight about that. I'll grab some donuts and we'll put on groundhog day. Don't that'll get our minds off of? That, you know you really should put like a creepy sitting on that thing I'll try and figured out. I'll go.

Ron Howard: Imagine Success

"Hi This is Alice I have an audio riddle for you listen to. These two scenes filmed almost sixty years apart and see if you can figure out the thread that connects them. There looking in and she see me, and she said Oh your sure jailers' little boy. Celje and she says had I like me some ice cream and I says I'd like me some fine. Normally I got may know spend money. And she says when my birthday and I said I wasn't rightly sure, and she says that may be on the safe side. She better give me my present now and she did. Her? When you know how to fly? Hundred Years Old. Great. The I was opie. The inquisitive red headed rocks, giving little boy on the Andy Griffith show. The second was Hans Solo captain of the Millennium Falcon and co-pilot with Chewbacca in the Star Wars prequel called Solo. Opie Taylor and Hans Solo. Take a moment to think about it. Dude Dude okay, I, know some of you got it for the rest of you. The link is Ron Howard. When he was five years old, he began playing opie. One of the most iconic TV characters of the nineteen sixties he went on to other big roles, but by his early twenties. Ronnie Howard the actor was morphing into Ron Howard, the director, a massively successful director at that. That his twenty fifth feature film, the most recent was Solo, a star wars story, which came out in two thousand eighteen, and in the intervening six decades between Opie and solo well, that's what we're here to talk about. One of the longest most celebrated careers in Hollywood history on this episode of what it takes a podcast about passion, vision and perseverance from the Academy of Achievement. I'm Alice. Would clerk at a main? Discharged is gifted. And I heard that enough that I started to believe. If you have the opportunity, not a perfect opportunity, and you don't take it. You may never have another child. It was so clear it was just like the picture started to form itself. There was no way in which ally could prevail over the truth darkness over light their life every day I. Wake up and decide. Today I'm going to love my life. Decide size. If they're going to break your leg or it's when you go in play, stay out of their. Companies differential experiences, but you don't look for you. Don't plan for. The boy, you better not miss him. Opie wasn't actually the beginning for Ron Howard before he was even two years old. He made his Hollywood debut as a crying baby. In the Nineteen Fifty, six movie frontier woman, and at the age of five, he spoke his first lines on screen in a film called the journey. What's your name? The laboring. Can activate. And the screen credits have rolled ever since for sixty two years pretty much strict. You know I've had a I think extraordinarily kind of blast. Journey at the same time. If, I can give myself credit for anything it's. It's probably for not taking it for granted. I don't think I've ever assumed it was going to go on forever unless I kept earning my way. Earning my keep. And and maybe even to like neurotic extent. I. I Never WanNa Coast. On past performances, and and it's probably one of the reasons why I wanted to become a director so I wanted to be able to control those opportunities so I could keep. Keep doing good work as I. Record this episode. Ron Howard's just about to release a documentary? He directed for national. Geographic called rebuilding paradise, and in a few months, a feature film adaptation of Hillbilly Elegy starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close among others, but we're going to head back to Ron. Howard's early days when he was known as Ronnie, and when Ronnie was best known as Opie on the Andy Griffith show is explain for those of you much younger than I that. That the Andy Griffith, show ran for eight years starting in black and white and later transitioning to color. It was about a sheriff in a small southern town, a widower, raising his young son alone well, I think that that I I was very fortunate because as a child, I was exposed to something entertainment business and and and taught about it in in a in a really solid way. My Dad is a is a very good teacher, kind natural teacher. And, he really gave me the fundamentals a lot of children. Are Put in that situation and they're just a little bit more than kind of trained animals I mean they're just, is it? They look cute. Then people want to certain reaction out of them, and they go them or they bribe them our. They do it and the children are really learning how to act. So, I had that for me, The environment particularly on the Andy Griffith show. was really wonderful and very inclusive. And if there's any reason that I like reaching out and talking to people about what I do, it's because that was very much the environment on the Andy Griffith show? The actors were really allowed to participate to contribute, and even as a kid I'm talking about six seven eight years old I was allowed to raise my hand and offer up a point of view about a scene or changing a line of dialogue, making something a little bit more natural allowed to participate. and. You know the. Imagine, this sort of the self esteem that that goes along with being accepted by a bunch of adults. Who was extrordinary Ron. Howard's father was actor rance Howard. His mother was gene Howard also an actor. The family moved from Homa to Hollywood to pursue life in the movies, and by the time Ron was ready for kindergarten. There was no way he could attend regular school. He talked about that during his interview with the Academy of Achievement in nineteen ninety seven. I had just kind of a so so formal education and and I was. By, no means a natural student I wasn't trouble in the classroom. I'd spend about half the year, maybe a little more than half the year being tutored on the set where I was generally the only the only kid if we had other kids in the episode. They you know they they'd be tutored for that week, but but my teacher for eight years. In my own little, one room schoolhouse was was Catherine Barton great woman passed away many years ago, but but meant a lot to me. And she had a great love of literature and and reading, and I can't say that I. You know really took to it right away, but so often I'll recall you know something that Mrs Barton said something attitude that she had about about about something about about poetry or or or So. He was a pretty creative environment for me there at the Andy Griffith, show, and also at home my father was always writing or conducting an improvisational workshop or something in the House. I was around it all the time. When I would go back to school, it would be a major adjustment. because. Sunday was in classroom and I I didn't and don't process things very quickly. If there was a dictation exercise where the teachers writing something on the board and we're supposed to copy it down. I'd always be the last one to finish. It wouldn't be terrible. It wouldn't be wrong I. Just be last and very nerve wracking. Be Sitting here. You know now, if you on top of that, you're sort of the new kid, and you're not necessarily getting things quite as quickly as everybody else. It was a little a little nerve wracking. Kids tended to I wouldn't say ostracized me. To make uneasy because they're always be two or three weeks. where it every day at school was more like some kind of a personal appearance where I was. At everybody's disposal. If. One group wanted to get autographs. They'd bug me for autographs. If another group wanted to, you know, make fun of me. They'd make fun of me and I I wasn't. I wasn't a person. this sort of. Is Image from TV that you know that that they now had at their disposal. It was kind of strange. Mostly run is talking here about his fame. As opie remembered, the show ran for eight seasons until it was fourteen, but I don't WanNa go too long without listing some of the other TV shows and movies that he was in as a child actor, but the time he was twelve, he'd had parts on the twilight zone, Dennis the menace and Dobie Gillis. He'd starred in the movie the courtship of Eddie's father, which was later turned into a TV show, and he'd had a big role in one of the hit movies of nineteen, sixty two, the music man playing Marian the librarians, little brother winthrop per. On. Link of fame. We'll say without removal of had. Didn't. Read the A pair of. Gary. At the end of his teenage years Ron. Howard had a major role in two more cultural touchdowns. He was Ritchie. Cunningham and happy days and the style GIC TV show. That Co starred Henry Winkler as the Fonz by the way I've been asked my whole life. If I'm related to Henry Winkler, sadly, I'm not, but happily. He and Ron Howard became soulmates during the show's ten year run I'll digress here for just a moment to play you a little snippet of Henry Winkler talking about his friend who I love with every fiber of my being. Stacey and I are the gone parents of his children. He said if God forbid anything happens to us to shower all and to me. Take them you can bar Mitzvah them if you want just take them. we could do scenes. You know three page scenes. We could do them. In twenty minutes. I went where he went. He went where I went. It was like it was uncanny. It was uncanny this was. Amazing Chemistry. Guy What a guy. What a guy. I never had an active partner like this in my life. Back to our chronology, I was saying that Ron Howard made a big splash into productions. Just before he turned twenty, one was happy days the other was that classic coming of age comedy American graffiti. What I meant was that Since. We do care for each other so much. And since we should really consider ourselves as adults now. I. saw. A couple of those fries. Food. WAS I. Instead of our cells die. I thought. Maybe before I leave. We could uh. Agree. Seeing other people while I'm away. Probably hurt, you know. You mean day another. People think it would strengthen our relationship. then. We know for sure that Marinela. Not that there's any doubt. American graffiti was a launching pad for many actors, and for its director and Co writer George Lucas and just so it doesn't slip past you I'll draw your attention to the star wars connection here during the shooting of American Graffiti Ron Howard remembers that George. Lucas mentioned to him. He was thinking next about a sci fi action film was special effects forty five years later. Ron Howard would have the honor of Directing Star Wars. Movie Solo So. Let's turn now to the question. How did Ron Howard make the transition to directing in twenties? And why, when his young acting career was going gangbusters well, I became intrigued by what the director did. Primarily because when I was working on the show on the Andy Griffith show. The the actors were they were a blast. I had so much fun hanging around with them. They were they were interesting. They were smart. They were funny. They were playing practical jokes. Then on a dime they could focus and do great work, and it was you know as a kid. I was impressed with these people. But, I also really enjoyed spending time with the crew. You know they'd let me sit up there and work the camera or learn a little something about sound. How the microphone worked in placement and lighting and things like that, and after a while I realized that the director was the one person who moment to moment day in and day out, really got to play with everybody and the job just started to look very very good to me. The thing that I've that I've also I. Think understood is because my father. Is. sort of a freelance actor, a character actor. He's never become star. He's never had leverage never had power in the industry. but he's always worked and he's made his living, but it's always a struggle. It's always a struggle, always extremely fortunate, but I could see my father struggling and it kind of noble way, because he's not really getting you know all the the the Kudos and the perks and all the stuff that a lot of people are attracted to the business four. He just liked. Being apart, he liked being a part of it, and that's what I. Began, to understand, is that I I was a part of something. And I started to think about what that thing was. What is that process of of staging a television show or movie and communicating with the audience? It's and it began to be much more to me than just showing up and fulfilling a function, because somebody handed me a script, it. It became an exploration. It became a chance to really to keep challenging myself and keep trying to sort of honor this. This this process. This system rance Howard by the way Ron's father continue to work in movies and television right up until his death in two thousand seventeen at the age of eighty nine, and he often appeared in the movies. His son directed in this interview Ron Howard talked about the lessons he continue to learn from his father. One came just after his father returned from its fiftieth has a reunion and he was very gratified by the experience because. All of his buddies retired ones that were still alive. and. He said you know. A lot of my friends. You know they went into the corporate world. He became doctors had great careers. The kinds of careers that everyone would sort of applauded them for pursuing and they. They pursued them in some of them are happy about it and some of them are. But I followed my dream. And, if if the object is to have a secure and gratifying life, I've achieved that maybe maybe never stardom, but my home is paid for I. Have a great pension through the screen, actors, guild and I have security. and on top of everything else while everyone else is winding down. I still can keep the dream alive because you never know when another interesting challenge is going to come along or another great role and I'm working more now than I ever have I'm active. I've got a lot to look ahead. to four toward and and it was really kind of moving and worth noting because. In fact, you don't have to become a superstar for this to be a gratifying life and career choice, but you got to be ready to persevere and take a lot of rejection. It doesn't seem like Ron Howard faced a lot of obstacles, but just looking at a list of his credits doesn't tell the whole story, says criticism and negatively or the name of the game in his line of work all well I mean that's that's. Practically goes with the job description because every project. Is you know kind of a potential disaster? And people are afraid they. Each project requires a huge investment so as a young person, a young adult, trying to make the transition from Sitcom actor to motion picture director. Well mean I. I was getting an awful lot of sort of you know patronizing kind pats on the head and a hanging there and you know in another ten or fifteen years I'm you know I'm sure somebody will give you a chance to direct, and that's not what I wanted to hear at all. so. Had A lot of frustration about that and I kind of my way out. Making student films myself by writing and by being fortunate enough to put myself get myself into a position of some leverage by being one of the lead actors on Happy Days I had some leverage had something like it. Sort of trade with most people get their first chance to direct by black mailing their way in. Generally, they have to say well. If you want me to write the script, you gotTA. Let me direct to act in the movie. You gotTA. Let me direct it. you know If you want this money. This group of investors that I found. You're GonNa have to let me direct the film and nobody really wants to hand a first time director. The rains blackmail eventually did work for him that and the solid training he got at USC Film School, which he attended years after he was already a big screen star when he was twenty three, he broke through to the other side, directing light comedies at first when I began directing I was very young and and the If there was an area where I had some expertise. It was in light comedy. And this is something that I'd been acting. In Aton I'd been involved with for twenty years already and so it was it was easier for me to convince people that I could actually take the responsibility and do the job of directing a film working in that in that tone, so I did. My first movie was a car chase comedy. Young people on the run called grand theft auto and made for six hundred two thousand dollars, but the filmmaker terrific prophet. It got me started. All right, there's a turn off about a mile. A good one, an immigrant start taking side road. Stanford on the team get their to specimen Kimble. No, we gotta get off the main drag. Reward hundred up down the whole thing we'll get lost. We go out there and the knowing well. No I got it right here. Look at the turnoff. Let's try and lose these jokers okay. I wrote it with my father. And I had to star in it in order to get to it, but that's the last time that I acted in anything I directed well. I actually had to do a scene in the next film that I directed and but I didn't like it, and I cut the scene out and the executives in charge of the project, fortunately like the movie well enough that they accepted the fact that I cut myself out of the movie. That was the last time that I acted in anything that I've directed and since then. I graduated onto more more. Ambitious projects gained the industry's trust. Gain the trust of potential creative collaborators. You know great actors. Writers other producers and slowly, but surely tried to broaden. The sort of the range and scope of what I, what I do as a director, I'm not sure there's anyone actually who's covered a broader range and scope as director. Let's take a couple of minutes for a whirlwind tour. Through the Ron. Howard highlights reel of course I'll be leaving at quite a bit. His directed thirty feature and documentary films after all and a boatload of television movies and shows tip. There have been tremendous comedies like splash the first of several collaborations with Tom Hanks. Who In this one false firming? Just. Just tell me who you are. I gotTa Talk to you. Can I call you. What you? I don't know how to swim. In another classic Comedy Parenthood with Steve Martin. I. Don't feel so good. You feel like you. WanNa throw up okay. Why are you just standing there? Waiting for head to spin around, parenthood later became a hit. TV show with Ron Howard as the executive producer. Then there have been fantasies like cocoon and willow magic. Is the blood stream of the universe. Forget all you know. I think you them. All that you reply. As your intuition. Now. Our to control the world. In Which? And Epoch American. Romance if that's genre called far and away and a Western, missing mother died. Scrubbing a floor. And you killed her. Didn't shooter Stabber, but what you did. You broker. So you don't want him with me that I promise you. There are a number of thrillers including ransom, and the whole Davinci Code Trilogy and an intense action drama about firefighters backdraft. It's a living thing Bryan and three. eighths. Only made a beat it. Like. Know flame will spread this way across the door and upper cross ceiling. After because of the physics of flammable liquids. because. They're also bio-pics like his. Release Hillbilly algae based on the memoir by JD Vance and the film that won him his Oscar for best picture, a beautiful mind about mathematical genius John Nash, who suffered from schizophrenia, and was played by Russell Crowe. I cannot waste time with these classes and. These books. Memorizing the week of lesser mortals. Need to look through. To the governing dynamic. Find a truly original idea, yeah! That's the only way I'll ever distinguish myself so only way that I'll ever massive. And more recently, there've been documentaries. This month is I mentioned earlier. He releases one about the aftermath of the most destructive wildfire in California history, the two thousand eighteen campfire, which burned fourteen thousand houses to the ground and displaced fifty thousand people. The movie's called rebuilding. Paradise Ron Howard's connection was personal. His inlaws had lived in paradise, and he knew the town well, but he also made a documentary about opera singer Luciano Pavarotti and one with some surprising history about the life of the Beatles on tour called eight days a week. All them by the way were very emphatic about Jacksonville. They said if there was going to be segregation of any kind. We're not going. We played a people. That's what we did. We didn't play like though was people that people? You know what I mean. We just played to people and I'll end with his historical dramas Ron Howard used to be afraid that true stories would confine him until he made Apollo Thirteen. It's as powerful today as it was in nineteen, ninety six when it came out just a year before our interview initially. When the idea for Apollo Thirteen came to me I didn't remember the mission very well, and as I looked at the facts. I had a vague recollection of it. I was believed in the space program in the spirit of exploration. But but I was not sort of space junkie. Initially I thought. Wow, this would be a great challenge to try to. Create for the audience. Recreate the experience of going into space. It's a very dramatic story, and that would be interesting, but I was looking at it more as a sort of cinematic. Exercise a great learning experience. However as I began to learn more about the mission. Began to see that it was in fact, even more dramatic than I realized. And more importantly as I began to meet, the individuals involved not only the astronauts, but also a number of the mission control people who were involved in the rescue. I began to see that this was really great human story of human triumph. A? A very emotional story and and and you could be very very truthful and yet it was a real opportunity to sort of celebrate what human beings are capable of and so my whole point of view about the movie Sh- shifted. About you know very early in the process, but it was a dramatic shift. This is Houston. Say Again, please Houston. We have a problem. We have a main be underbowled. Apollo thirteen was the second of five films Ron Howard has made starring Tom Hanks as varied as his movies have been. He often seeks out the same trusted partners when you're doing something as emotionally risky. As. You know sort of. Working on TV, show or or or a movie I mean. Part of it. Is that you're? You're you're you're facing the real possibility of? Complete public, humiliation. It's not all that unusual for people to just say that was terrible. Did you see this guy? He's tall. He was awful. steaks and and so everybody knows that that's out there because they've participated in that same. Kind of ragging on on shows and movies. They know they know you're that. You're putting yourself. Up for that sort of that sort of judgment, you're opening yourself. So, as a result. There there does need to be a kind of trust, but I found that in the creative community. There's often a sort of an instant trust. And you can either. In just one or two conversations? You can actually determine whether that trust exists. In a in a relationship or not and but it's it's people are always looking around for allies in in this in this business and I mean there are a few lone wolves out there, but I certainly am not one of them. My partner Brian Grazer and I've been. You know basically working together since nineteen eighty one. And off, and on a little bit, but absolutely partnered since eighty-five Brian Grazer is the ying to his Yang. grazer produces Howard directs most of the time after the huge success of their movie splash, they started their own production company. Imagine entertainment, and that's been their creative home ever since. And we really rely upon each other, because it, it often feels kind of. You know kind of Emotionally dangerous in the business, because you are always setting yourself up to fail I mean. Most most shows and movies don't quite live up to expectations. There's a degree of disappointment that goes along with almost every project that you get involved with, and it's It's important to have To be working with people who you really trust I often work with the same writers, not always. because I also feel that. That it's important. Not to fall into really strict patterns. I don't think you WanNa make this film exactly the way you made the last one or this TV series exactly the way made the last one, and so one way you know for me to sort of mix that up not fall into the trap of that kind of repetition is to. Take on new collaborations. Sometimes, it's a little emotionally risky, but but it's You know usually a risk worth taking usually, that's the very thing about risk. And how does Ron Howard handle the ones that don't work out so well? How does he handle criticism? I think I handle criticism well. I think that's one of my strengths. In fact, that doesn't mean I like being criticized. It hurts. It always hurts whether it's a critic whether it's a bad review. Whether it's you know. You know people in the bathroom after after they've seen the movie and I. Hear Them and. You know a couple of people are saying Harry liked it and one person's wasn't so good. I'll forget about all the compliments and that you know that one criticism we'll we'll. We'll stay with me and some very very sensitive to it, but. But I really believe. That, it's wrong. Stick your head in the sand and pretend that. Everybody loves what you do and only listen to the good stuff because you need to be sorta nourished by that. I think the healthiest. kind of balance. Is One where you have the self confidence. To continue to engage to, you know to do the work to prepare yourself so that you believe that you actually are bringing something to this process it's. It's reasonable for you to be there doing this work participating in this endeavor whatever it is. But tried to let that drift into arrogance, blind arrogance instead try to maintain the humility. To then listen to those who speak up and say I think you're making a mistake. I don't think that's. As, good as it should be and certainly. In any kind of endeavor. Gets back to old Abe Lincoln. You know you. You can please some of the people you know. All the time, and but you can't please all the people. And what does it I got? It all screwed up there but How did it go you You can please all of the people some of the time and some of the people all the time. But. You can't please all the people all the time. That still might be wrong, but you get the gist Clearly the case with any sort of creative, and you know undertaking is. There's no way no movie that's ever been made. No television show has ever been produced that everybody. Liked. It's the kind of level headed down to Earth take. You might expect from Ron. Howard who, for all his fame, and success still comes across with the kind of sincerity and humility. You could spot when he was five years old, and just as the older actors and crew used to treat him with respect, as he was starting out, he enjoys returning the Karma to young people who come up to him with dreams of breaking into the business, but aren't sure whether to take a safer more traditional path through life. What do I do I? Keep saying. And and what I keep. Telling them is that that? Any sort of. Intellectual academic. Pursuit is going to be valid. To creative life. So you almost can't go wrong. Almost can't go wrong pursuing the sort of the the more obvious course. And anybody can experiment around with with creativity with writing. With putting together a film. And Film? Schools are great. Anchorage a lot of people that go I went film school. It's wonderful if you know that's really what you want to dedicate yourself, but if there's any question at all. I would say. Trust the fact that you can get your movies shown. You can enter them in festivals. You can be very very creatively ambitious outside the framework of film school and I really believe that. Great creative ideas. We'll sort of find their way to the. To the to the surface you know. Make your videos. Interim Festivals show-me to your friends. Expose them to criticism. Go out and make another film. Don't put all your creative eggs in one basket. Don't write one SPEC script and walk away. Keep just keep pushing and pushing it and you may find. It's too much trouble. Good lesson, don't do it. Walk away. You might find that you really love it. Really love it. Find ways to pursue. Ron Howard speaking to the Academy of Achievement, but I can't possibly sign off without mentioning that I only discovered while working on this episode that Ron Howard was one of the executive producers of my very favorite TV comedy arrested development for all five seasons. He also did the voice over narration without any credit. It's one of the quirkiest things about the show. Ron Howard delivering his. His lines like an anthropologist to scrubbing the curious dysfunctional lives of the formerly wealthy blue family when George senior was in charge, he had a habit of shooting down any idea. Michael came up with in Sudden Valley. Just sort of implies that something awful could happen all of a sudden you know, plus it's on a hill, really taking stupid pills. Come on, save some money. This was a management tool that he used to keep Michael working for his approval on the same now to. If you've never seen arrested, development added to the playlist for your Ron. Howard Film Festival next weekend. I'm Alice. Winkler, and this is what it takes from the Academy of Achievement. What it takes is made possible with the generous funding for Catherine B Reynolds. Foundation thanks to them and as always. Thanks to you for this.

I WanNa go to the mountains and you want to go to Bangkok. No hope so. Let's talk about some county stuff talk about about it well. Let's let's talk about it because this came up in the group too. That's why we came up. This theme lately is Monday. Show today show But now that I'm talking about I can't remember what came up. It was a letter. Yeah the survey of still. Yeah Yeah actually got one today you take it head actually got one today from a county in in Texas. It was a survey so and it's funny that a lot of people kind of freak out about them because they're like. Oh do I write this out. Do I put the number on it. And you know the the the big answer is if it's a survey after the fact and they didn't make you I have to To close to record the deed. They're requesting you do it by State Law. They have to ask Idaho. I got one there not too long ago. That was EH. Hey can we go on your property to inspect it if we need to. So we can revaluation for the current for the recent sale that you had that was a little bit different to me but the one in Texas was like. Hey what did you pay afford. What police in his back? I always tell myself a little bit. They have postage paid envelope in there. I'll take that postage paid envelope. Use It for something else so okay. Hey let's one real quick because I feel like we just jumped right into that. So the reason why this came up is because one of our members got pot some land uh-huh and then the county where he bought the land After he was done he closed on at the county sent him a survey wanting to know what he paid for it and all that and he wasn't sure what to do a fast forward to right. Now that's what we're talking about. What I just said Nope you didn't say any of that? You just jump right into it okay. So after you've heard Nice summary three or recount of what we just discussed here in podcast. Is I think a lot of times like in your head. You know what you're talking about. Yeah so you just keep going from there. We need some detail ha okay. So he didn't know what to do and that's a common thing it's like. Oh shoot this from the county what do I do. Yeah it freaks me out when it's definitely county. Yeah I hate seeing county letter on. I'm not expecting it but I saw some of the responses like just throw those away and that's typically what I would do to I like I said I borrowed the postage because the taxpayers paid for it is. We'll use it and then I filed the the paper in a round file folder. Next next to my desk while you do it when I emailed in taxes or something. Yeah don't take on taxes so speaking taxes little public service announcement meant for those of our listeners. I know you're doing more than one to two deals a year especially in in the same county pro tip double check your APN's before you pay your taxes US sometimes. The glorious assessor doesn't talk to the Glorious Recorder and know that you've sold your property. Don't be like Justin and pay taxes on something you pay taxes. Can you close through title to somebody else paid their taxes for misuse. I gotta get back way because I'm a little confused here. So long story short I had accounting I had like fifteen properties in a wholesome notes their own stuff and flips and stuff there and I'm closing on one right now so they sent me my title commitment in Said Hey pay pay the taxes like eight hundred ninety six dollars for the taxes in this one. It's really Nice Property and I'm like Oh crap. I just paid that tax. They want me to do they. Were GonNA withhold it out of escrow and said hey don't don't here's a receipt receipt for everything's paid and they're like okay cool. I sold another property right in that same subdivision so I looked up there. It is a paid one hundred eighty one dollars for that property pretty in taxes when I paid the whole book for the county and I was like shoot. I sold that property six months ago and they took it out of closing. You know my half with my prorated amount so so I paid the guys taxes for last year even they took it out of closing for me. So how much did you pay one. Eighty one eighty. Have you tried to get it back. I haven't called yet so my my docket for tomorrow. I I don't know. If counties are in the business giving refunds well may have lost one hundred ninety one dollars Mr Southey an grand scheme of things one hundred eighty one dollars that big. It's more that. was that a ego. Like why the heck do that. No because I get beat up every day I come over here boy here every day so every time we record I get the shot shot in the arm something. I'm glad that you messed up just in. You know no no positive reinforcement. I told you my love language was words of affirmation and you give give me words a defamation Okay Yeah. I don't think that that's what we're going to get into right now. So so so just take that from me. One hundred eighty dollar lesson for everybody. It's like me taking one for the team. Just double check your numbers and it's got me looking at a lot more a lot. Closer because most counties have one or two properties in this county had like fifteen and have another county has like ten or so so I have to go back and verify that but it is tax time you know paying those out and a stack of them on my desk. And they're just all markdown with the dates of Dune running through them. Yeah I'm afraid I'm always afraid I'm gonNA miss one like Misa tax. You know like some places are due at different times Ram Miss a payment. But you know they don't take your property right. I do know that. Yeah Okay just making sure you knew that it takes a little while it's not. Yeah I've seen these people go ten years paying in these smaller towns. Yeah I don't know makes zero sense to me. But they would let him go for you know that'd be ten years. Maybe an exaggeration but definitely long periods of time without paying that stuff and they never do anything. Yeah I actually had funny you say small town so I was going through emails looking at some property. I bought an area and I was trying to find. Somebody's name and he was an attorney for quite tied one Oklahoma. And so I'm googling that county and small town what's the what's the Andy Griffith the the sheriff he POPs up and I. I just brought me back in two thousand seventeen when I ran this marking run and the sheriff called me and told me he was gonna GonNa ride expose and come get me in Texas and I was just thinking about that I was like there's this email like I just popped up so I was like all small town this guy you know so sometimes. Did you get threatened by the small town. Sheriff Yeah I remember that and then the county assessor called me and said we didn't give you none of this. Data's these people shouldn't be mad at us and I'm like well you did. Did he just came from another service that you provide to 'cause they pay you for it so fun times the Air Fun Times Coun County Fun. I don't know I could easily go off of that stuff I'm a I'm a hold it in okay but it is tax time. I mean there's and I've seen some of those counties where the tax sale list is up kind of browsing one of those today. One of my favorite counties I got some great properties. Anybody nope no one. I know personally any names look familiar. Maybe maybe not uh-huh I feel like there's a story here but you don't want to tell us we're gonNA leave me since it's been leaving blast. Okay okay let me some people. Don't be the property taxes. That's okay I want I I. It's a business opportunity for somebody else to buy that tax lien and hold on for a little while it is yeah with whatever the interest rate is on that and take that to the bank. There's people that do nothing but that yeah and you're okay with that. Yeah I mean if you you know so some of these you could go buy them for an and this is a county where a while ago I think a couple years ago I was buying five acres for fifteen hundred honored. It looks like you could go by the taxes on it for three hundred bucks right now. Wow and so but you gotta hang onto over three years in that county and then assuming they don't pay you back right then you'd get a treasure of deed and then you can resell but property taxes if you had to pay them for the next two years or twenty bucks a year Now you're all in three or four hundred dollars Well that's over a thousand dollars cheaper than what I was paying for him. You just pass them investors all day. Yeah so anyway those go you know so just just a as you get ready for Christmas. Mus Don't spend all your tax money on Christmas presents yet. Yeah that's pretty good pretty good advice unless you're Adam and he doesn't because he's Prophet I and apparently there's a couple of people in the group that are using that I'm telling you people don't use profit. I need to make change it. It makes a world of difference and you don't realize it until you do it. I think that's going to be one one of my New Year's resolutions. I think I'm going to write that down and set up another account to put tax money because right now I invest all my tax money year round and try to try to turn that money to. Yeah it's not just I mean that's obviously the hope for tax but paying yourself to it makes a big difference. I don't get to do that. And the whole idea. Profit I that you do get paid.

The O'Reilly Update, December 6, 2019

"Bill O'Reilly here Friday December. Sixth Two thousand nineteen. You are listening to the O'Reilly update. Here's what's happening today. In America as the nation continues to be engrossed in Politics Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in two thousand thousand sixteen by winning states hardest hit by the sluggish Obama. Economy places like Wisconsin Ohio Michigan now. Despite the Democrats ongoing impeachment exercise Mr Trump's chances of enjoying another four years in the oval office hinge inge on those exact states and how America's working men and women feel about their futures turns out. Most of us are now living well. Earning more money owning more homes gaining access to more goods than at any point. In our nation's history the unemployment rate for American adults stands at three point seven percent the lowest level since one thousand nine hundred sixty nine jobless claims for African Americans and Hispanics panics at unprecedented low numbers according to the Department of Labor the median household income is just under sixty thousand dollars. A fourteen percent bump up from Barack Obama's first term in the White House the small business market is booming. There are currently thirty million small businesses across the country employing fifty eight million Americans about fifty percent of the total workforce. There's also some good news for the poorest Americans recent studies from the US Census Bureau show American families living at or below the poverty line mine have more amenities than at any other time. In history clothing access to products once considered luxuries ninety nine percent of American households. Earning in less than thirty thousand dollars a year have a refrigerator. Ninety eight percent of TV ninety seven percent and oven seventy eight percent of Americans uh-huh living below. The poverty line has air conditioning. Seventy eight percent most have more living space than middle class Europeans yet. That many Americans are not experiencing security in the strong economy. Seventy percent of folks report some kind of financial struggle in their day to day lives. The middle-class hardest hit with twenty percent falling into debt in the last decade. Much of that is failure to manage money effectively and trying to keep up with with the latest conveniences and fats as always Americans will have the final say on President Trump's economic agenda next November as it should be in a moment hammering famous people.

Tom Brady getting battered in the media. Even though the New England patriots have a record of ten wins and two losses. How can this be possible? Well it's the same old American Eric Phenomenon. When you get to the top somebody wants to knock you down and Tom? Brady is the latest example. The quarterback was born in San Mateo California in Nineteen seventy seven. He is forty two years old and still playing professional football the ball. He played his college at the University of Michigan. He was drafted in the sixth round of the two thousand NFL draft. which is very low? Tom Brady has been with the Patriots for twenty seasons an NFL record for quarterback for one team in Brady's eighteen years as a starter. He's playing a record. Nine super bowls and is one of only two quarterbacks to win a super bowl in their first season. Tom Brady has won. Six Super Bowls won four super bowl. MVP awards the most ever by a player as well as three NFL. MVP awards awards. He is the oldest player to have won an MVP. So Tom Brady is a phenomenon. The best quarterback of all time yet this season he is getting crushed. That's because Mr Brady's statistics are not what they I used to be. So many are saying. Oh He's too old. He's over the hill but having played the quarterback position in college. I can tell you. The real reason reason that Tom Brady is not being successful as he's been in the past his receivers the people he throws the ball to are not getting open. He has one receiver that he can count on. Julian Edelman and he is now double teamed. I don't WANNA WANNA get too technical for those of you who don't follow sports but that means two opposing players cover Mr Edelman effectively taking taking him out of the game but the other receivers should be getting open and they're not a television. Shot on the sideline last last week. Showed Tom Brady get a little upset with those guys. They are not getting open so he has no one to throw the ball to therefore the New England patriots. Offense is not doing well. That's the situation but that's not what's being reported so Tom Brady. He is getting killed in social media on television on radio. And nobody's really putting anything into perspective. This happens all oh time in this country. If you are famous successful person you're GONNA get it. You make one misstep front-page headlines your through. ooh Your Evil Your this your that. And here's something interesting. Once the famous person gets batter all right and the more the better header for the media. You know that then Americans want to see him or her. Make a comeback. So Frank Sinatra. I'd kill. His career was over then he rose again that kind of stuff. Americans want resurrection. But in the meantime very famous people have tough lives.

The Rural Purge (Entry 1091.PS6503)

"I'm Dana Schwartz and I'm the host of noble blood a new history podcast from iheartradio in Aaron Minke that focuses on the stories of some of history's most fascinating royals the murdered the murderers and everyone in between the world is is full of ill fated love affairs bad decisions and family drama but when you're wearing the crown mistakes tend to mean blood listening subscribe at Apple podcasts or on the iheartradio APP or wherever you listen to podcasts all omnibuses a production of iheartradio this message we are Ken Jennings in John Rodrick. We speak to you from our present which we can only assume as your distant past the turbulent time that was the early twenty first century during the great cataclysm that will surely befall our civilization. We began this monumental reference of strange in obscure your human knowledge these recordings represent our attempt to compile and preserve wonders esoterica that would otherwise be lost so whether you're listening from an advanced civilization or just reinvented the technology to decrypt our transmissions. This is our legacy to you. This is our time capsule. This is the on the bus you have accessed entry one zero nine one dot P. S. six five zero three certificate number three six eight four one the rural purge the two buckhorns Roy mark. You had a T._v.. Network on American television networks. That's like ten deep in your childhood the primordial soup of John Roderick what's what his but he the American T._V. Channel interesting. I was felt like an N._B._C. Guy but in the seventies I was a C._B._S.. Guy I don't think I ever was an A._B._C.. I was wondering if you would be there was is a brief window when thanks to happy days Laverne and Shirley and <hes> happy days laverne and Shirley Company company Morgan Mend A._B._C. had this big Sitcom Block and they were in the late seventy S. They were the Sunley the dominant network in American. I was wondering Andrea being because I'm an N._B._C.. Kit I came up on the the huxtable era of Family Brennan Tartikoff family sitcoms. I absolutely watched all those sitcoms and that was our blocked but like <hes> I wonder if N._B._C. just having the peacock and the wrong pong if kids tend to remember well A._B._C. employed the theme song or I'm sorry the jingle for A._B._C.. In the mid seventies was still the one which was by the Band Orleans Leans. We're still the one if that we're still having fun and we're having fun and it was such a catchy tune and A._B._C. played it all the time. It was like I felt like maybe for just that summer but it it connected with me in that way that only great pop music can do when it's excerpted into a thirty second Promo Jingle and I think at least at that point in that part of my life I wouldn't have even I wouldn't even been able to. I'll tell you a different <hes> television station than A._B._C. Because I was I so fixated on that tune but then the N._B._C. Peacock I mean they all were. They were pretty good at getting kids to identify what right because Saturday Mornings U._C.. That's when you see all the PROMOS. If you're a kid a catchy jingle goes a long way like the that motel saw that motown song get ready cause here. I come like I only like I only associated with that as a kid and hearing the new lyrics Eric's get ready for Komo Kid's fair which was some kind of some kind of summer kids event run by the local A._B._C. affiliate here so this must have been yeah. You're the one that we're still in front of. We're still the one must have been that brief era when A._B._C. he was the number one yeah mid seventy seven or something late seventies I think and we would have watched all those programs that you <hes> that you describe and then started to transition into more mature fare of course like the love boat and Fantasy Asi island where that was A._B._C.'s stuffy right. Yeah people were it was implied that people were having sex no one in the no one in the happy days Laverne and Shirley Universe I guess Fonzie it was suggested that Fonzie fs had had had some sex with people but no one else did with Leather Tuscan Darrow Yeah Yeah but on the love boat you know Jamie Farr would slink back to his cabin with who it was not Stephanie powers. He's Outta his league. Who's who would Jamie Farr? Maybe me Cindy Sherman. You know. This is not a thing that exists anymore people identifying with a network isn't that funny. I mean I guess in the nineties eighties it was N._B._C. and then you know when the media landscape started to fragment segment. I guess you were more of a you're an E._S._p._N.. Guy Fawkes I showed up on the okay so there is a Fox type because they were the edgy programming and all the college kids watching simpsons and x-files and married with children EXAC- this kind of stuff you wouldn't see on the three old traditional networks but it but they really did like so many things like Ford and Chevy when or like various record labels are S._O.. Versus universal or something you know a big part of of the scarcity of media at the time was was associated with a football team sort of <hes> part of their part of the way they sold their content. I guess which we did. It's not what we would have said then we said programming. was you know we didn't know yet that we had invented content like you. Oh if that was true I guess with the radio stations in my town you would you would describe yourself as someone who either two one or two point five or listen to one oh seven point seven and the marketing angle is the same. Don't touch that dial right. This is where you leave it in your car and when you're at home you come home from work and you just leave it on N._B._C. or A._B._C. or wherever your feel-good sitcoms are going to be because they don't want you switching around and being like well. I switched over to Dallas but then I come back to N._B._C. for Carson they really want you to stick it out. When I was a drinking man there was <hes> you know the the bar that I drank at the part of which you drafted the bar bar at drank which was a preposition inning ending sentence worth man? They had a happy hour that was from like eight to ten or something like that and a new bar opened down the block doc. Linda's was the new bar the Communists where I drank Linda's opened and put their happy hour one hour one minute. They're happy hour started one hour later I think so maybe the comment was seventy eight seventy nine and the and Linda's was eight ten so you'd start at the comet but then you'd go to Linda's for that extra hour of happy hour but of course that's where you'd stay the rest of the night. It's smart. I was thinking you'd put it ten minutes earlier but really later later is what keeps people there and I think she may have tried it the other way and then realized Oh everybody leaves here to go to the comet so she flipped it around savvy of course once the media landscape fragmented there were more options and it really could reflect your personality more honestly the programming on N._B._C. A._B._C. and C._B._S.. Were not that different the sitcoms that went up against happy days and Laverne and Shirley well in the in the late seventies N._B._C. was. Is just an watched N._B._C. was a disaster right. I remember it was before the cosby show kind of remodeled its as Sitcom brand and so what did they have on that C._B._S.. Had had kind of the classier socially relevant if that's where you would watch Masher Archie bunker okay the Jefferson. I think that's why I associated myself as a C._B._S.. Kid 'cause because of flashy yeah. It's kind of forgotten now now that we think of if we remember these three networks as model etc we kind of think of them as kind of interchangeable three cars causley jockeying for the lead in fact that is not true C._B._S.. Was the top rated television network in America from nineteen fifty five to nineteen seventy-six without interruption while everybody else was also had Walter Cronkite to they had Walter cronkite they were the <hes> the tiffany network they were kind of the gold standard of classy respectable American family television and they were just an unstoppable ratings juggernaut in nineteen sixty to Nineteen Lina the top twenty five shows on the air in terms of Nielsen Ratings Worse T._B._S.. Shows no the tonight show was N._B._C.. Yes which was always in that time slot. The top rated show wasn't it didn't the Carson show kind of have <hes> have a lock at least on that nighttime yes so there were other day parts which I think is what they say in the T._v.. World where you know somebody else could be dominant. Somebody's soaps could be better than somebody else's soaps. Maybe somebody's game shows were better carson. Carson was dominant. Obviously you can't count program Saturday night live but in Primetime C._B._S. ruled which was when the most number of eyeballs were focused on the yeah by by an order sure of magnitude. This is when people are home watching T._v.. And this is one advertisers want to put the new cars and Beers in front of dad right and so that's the lucrative time for a T._v.. Network and C._B._S. did this on the strength of a wide variety of programs going all the way back to I love Lucy but then popular westerns like gunsmoke and by the late sixties they were still dominant in nineteen sixty seven hundred sixty eight C._B._S. C._B._S.. At thirteen of the top eighteen rated primetime shows and ninety six the entire top five is a C._B._S.. Lineup the the biggest shows in America Andy Griffith <hes> Lucille Ball's new show Gomer pyle gunsmoke family affair for that really gives you a strange picture of the late sixties that he being generation X.. We never quite see into what was that like. You're talking about sixty eight sixty kgo eight so you would think this is gonNA be counterculture. Laughing smothers brothers and it's seriously five shows where people are like cook your it's Andy Griffith Lucille Ball gunsmoke. It's stuff that could have been on ten years before it was twenty years for call and it is he <hes> he was a C._B._S.. Show and C._B._S. started to get this reputation for having these weirdly kind of backwoods shows led by Andy Griffith and Jim nabors right and <hes> and they were disparagingly called the country entreat broadcasting system wow and this is not something that the funny thing is this is just not a continuation of of rural American culture. This had to be created in nineteen fifty seven. There were a lot of Westerns on TV which you could say is kind kind of a rural frontier. My my dad's watching Westerns my mom would say you know dad would come home and before I was born. Turn on the T._v.. And Watch gunsmoke or whatever western was on loved them in old movies they always watch westerns because you can immediately tell you'll just hear Bang Bang and Indian wars and the subtext is clear. We don't have to license any dialogue but this guy is watching prime-time TV which is probably a western the but the dawn of rural TV actually started in nineteen fifty seven on A._b._c. when they badly needed a hit and these two Broadway writer producers Norman Irving Pincus told them the brothers had a surefire success the Pinkus brothers said <hes> we need we got this idea Walter Brennan in a show called the real mccoys about kind of a West Virginia Hillbilly family the comes West to California the inheritor ranch in San Fernando valley and they move out to the valley and make pornography did approach from the ground come bubbling crude. I mean this is before the beverly hillbillies by five years and so the beverly hillbillies are kind of ripping off the real McCoy yeah so for six years on the real on A._B._C.. The the real mccoys were a huge hit and it's it's the same beverly hillbillies kind of fish out of water thing you got grandpappy Amos played by here Walter Brennan the cowboys side kick from the forties. <HES> has like three best supporting actor Oscar. I think very good opposite Humphrey Bogart into heaven have not but he's kind of this grandpappy who's out of step in the modern world but typically his conservative worldviews proved to be correct course even in the San Fernando Valley of Nineteen fifty nine and you know there's a little bit of minstrels e to I mean this was not for rural people to finally see themselves. This was really for everybody in America to kind of laugh at these bumpkins right the bumpkins that have a heart of gold and that's absolutely true for most of this stuff right the you're gonna say it was true for most bumpkins most have article but no Gomer pyle is never wrong right. He by the end of the episode like simple simplicity turns out to be the only league thing that we can count on the trappings are having a rock Graham. Granny in a rocking chair on the back of a truck is funny and it's funny that they don't know how to use a telephone or whatever but no obviously there homespun ideals always went out in the against the crooked developer galloper or the snooty p._T._a.. Lady or the Contemptible Articulate Man with a Pencil Moustache right. There's there's an anti bigotry episode of the Real mccoys but it's bigotry against hillbillies. The local kids are calling the hillbilly kids slurs so the other networks take notes of this huge hit and in nineteen sixty C._B._S.. Rolls out its kind of appeal to that audience the Andy Griffith show Andy Griffith plays a widowed sheriff impossibly possibly bucolic small American town of mayberry Andy Griffith though is smart looks like he's not portrayed as a as a dumb hillbilly. He's like Oh. He's folksy folksy right and I guess Barney Fife Don knotts is the town is full of the town has some clowns yeah but but yes in general he's another kind of simple but wise salt of the earth type and that's not a fish out of water. Show mayberry is all about building the world of this kind of lost nostalgic America but don't they have like city folks that come through there and blow a tire or I mean they they. I think folks come into mayberry that don't belong there I think so and as you said some of the later shows have the fish out of water can see very prominently beverly hillbillies and then of course greenacres which has kind of a rich park avenue guy feeling the lure of the soil and moving his spoiled socialite wife right to Hooterville but here's my question. This is like nineteen sixty America's changing. This is no no longer the the State Eisenhower era is young vibrant. Jack Kennedy's America. This is the new frontier what in your opinion is the appeal of these throwback hayseeds shows well. Isn't it always that <hes> that we pine for the Simpler Times of twenty years ago when we didn't have all these darned did cell phones and whatnot I mean it seems like an eternal if you if you read back like the diaries of Samuel peeps he's like the fifty and thirty he's always talking about. How how relaxed it was before? The court. Cuddle got all up in its bunches. I think there's something to that because nearly early sixties would have been kind of the the the dawn of the man in the gray flannel suit where you know America the the average American man is now kind of stressed harried office type right well and who misses who misses.

That's beat Oh O._T.. Y Two thirty thirty thirty after World War Two there was such a transformation of of Rural America. This was when all of a sudden you had electricity and telephones and sewers going into all these places that up until throughout the war I guess people in a lot of rural communities where were still another. They weren't on a grid of any kind so so that electrification the suburbanization the urban -ation at all was happening in in this ten year period and it must have been incredibly destabilizing for people who weren't already living on Madison Avenue it's tempting to I think this is the time period when Americans move to the cities and of course that's not true <hes> America when America was founded five percent of the country was city-dwellers and today it's over eighty percent but that inflection point where it past fifty percent was around World War One. Oh yeah before nineteen twenty half of all Americans were living in a city and if you look at early T._V.. It is kind of sparkling urbane atmosphere spirit. You know th th the area panel shows. It's <hes> you know the biggest Sitcom hit is I love Lucy. This woman with a Cuban bandleader husband and a Nice New York penthouse keeps meeting celebrities yeah even the honeymooners honeymooners were blue collar cities exactly their blue-collar but they're probably Brooklyn to the Bronx <hes> yeah and although although like a the romantic comedies of that era too they're all in in <hes> in in penthouse house apartments right they all right. It's beautiful art deco apartment. If you ever see someone out in a field it's it's it's just that their car broke down so the subtext of T._v.. Really is these are educated people these urbanites and the sixties boom in petticoat adjunction type shows. I don't know if it's something in the Zeitgeist or or if it's just you know chasing one hit. The real mccoys was a hit so let's do six six rip off but think about Gilligan's island <hes> I would prefer not no I want you to I want what you to think about it with me at the very beginning. I can't a three hour tour. Yes that's right how why do they have all those changes of clothes. Get burr and Marianne the millionaire and the professor you've never actually it was still the one everywhere again and the rest but but Gilligan's island and greenacres came out about the same time I think Gilligan's island preceded it a little bit both had this millionaire and his wife who were who were put in this situation. I mean he'll Zainal. It is the ultimate how do we recapture are our essence in a in a world gone mad. It's a fertile comic ground around to take people to do the Crocodile Dundee thing and put somebody in a weird environment rights to this day that the first movie is entirely powered by what if thor tried to use an escalator. Is it going to be funny if he tries to order at a diner I mean wall munsters and addams family same exact concede except in a different direction like they're right there hillbillies but like from the hills of Transylvania and they don't recognize that they're the weird one right that's true they think they think the neighbors neighbors are weird. That's and that's the whole joke <hes> so you're you're absolutely right to to look at all of this programming as kind of of of a piece and is it. Is it a return or is it a it isn't just fish out out of water comedy. There's something really nostalgic about it for people of the time they're not. It's not just like hey. We've got because Dick. Van Dyke is a is a great example of sixties com sixties Sitcom that is still erudite people in a cool of martyrs showbiz insider. He writes for comedy show could not be more insider Meta. They're like mid century. Modern goes out is nice suburban mid century modern house Mary Tyler Moore in Capri Pants so it wasn't universal but but wow what a preponderance of these show and it just suddenly starts in nineteen sixty the time when you would think the rural influence on American culture would be ending right instead it takes over the airwaves and C._B._S.. Is still the number one show in America in nineteen seventy one network sorry number one network in America. Yes plenty young executive named Fred Silverman takes over him programming at Fred Silverman decides we are tired of being laughingstocks. We are not the country broadcasting system even though the top rated even though these shows are still okay there have been some decline greet. Greenacres ratings are down. Beverly hillbillies ratings are down. These shows are past their prime. Jim nabors wants to leave Gomer Gomer pyle to do the singing or whatever else he does be Bene- d'arret wants to leave petticoat junction. You may remember her as the voice of Granny in looney tunes cartoons she was also the the lead on creating something so some other shows are kind of winding down but Fred Silverman in the space of one or two years institutes. What's called the rural purge what I'm not it's not called that at the time but in hindsight and we can see the network reshaping itself you can see that he cancels anything old old-timey on the network in the space of two seasons so we think of Fred Silverman at least I do as somebody from the eighties right A._B._C. Guy? He's like an older dude by then but in in nineteen sixty or nineteen seventy he's young Turk thirty yeah and so the old time he shows go away. Oh it's all these it's all these kind of hey OECD countries shows but it's also kind of stale seeming variety shows red skelton our and other Vaudevillians shows the the westerns. <hes> you know that was the action paradigm for a generation of kids was cowboys and Indians but <hes> the westerns go away as well and some of these were still successful shows C._B._S. is still the number one show mayberry r f d the successor to the Andy Griffith successor to the show is a top twenty show hee haw a new Nashville Grennell opera comedy show is in the top twenty Fred doesn't care it's all gotta go and he cleans house well so now he eliminated hee haw but he haw continued as a viable syndicated show for two decades. Well these properties were still popular so for the first time you had extremely popular shows that were homeless first run syndication was kind of invented here I mean there had been kind of odd ball hits in first run syndication game shows and the like but this was the first time that shows that had big prime time audience could say could approach local affiliates directly and say hey if we can get one hundred fifty by our show so we can stay a going concern so lassie is cancelled but last year goes into syndication for a couple years Laurence welk is cancelled because what could be older than a year kind of German die from the Midwest is conducting orcas but he he continued until two thousand sixteen. He's alive. No one goes on for eleven seasons I used to I used to love Laurence Welk as as a kid when I was three or four years old not a surprise as much as you might think and. You can see that a little bit and-a-one and-a-two he has the VIC success story after it's canceled after a couple of seasons on C._B._S.. It runs for twenty years in syndication does not go off the year till nine hundred and ninety two wow like Bill Clinton is running for president when he has has cancelled and I guess they were like we did it. I Watched Hee haw and I don't know how I'm not exactly sure we'll know because my mom is from my mom's from northern Ohio and there I don't think is any worse prejudice in America than the people of than than what the people of Northern Ohio feel for the people of Southern Ohio needs to watch that anti bigotry episode of the real she does to stop using offensive words like Yoko she does. She feels like she feels like the in West Virginia and Kentucky are are some kind of like foreign foreign land and so she was really against like the music of John Denver for instance like any any kind of American affected station. How would you at fetishes ation that making it fetid fetish ization fetish ization like creating a fetish out of of American Fetish Ization of Rural Roll Country People Yeah? My mom was like drew a hard line against it in our house because in her eyes they are trashing should not be nice romanticize. She wouldn't use the word trash but she feels like as a as a northerner her she felt like culture was something that the Dick Van Dyke show was the world she aspired to and was the world that she thought was morally superior. John Denver has an Ottoman she does that. Country Roads are anything to celebrate. She thinks that city streets are better than country roads she just she was extremely suspicious of that world because I think growing up in a post civil war Ohio like her grandfather fought in the civil war for the Union they were still pretty stark dividing dark dividing line because Ohio was the one place in the country where it was the the union was only one st deep really that was the chokepoint and then the area around Cincinnati she still felt like like a little suspects. Certainly Southeastern Ohio she considered was part of West Virginia and wouldn't wouldn't go down there. I mean if you've been to southern Ohio. It is part of Kentucky and West Virginia and culturally it is you're not going to you should not expect a rust belt vibe but what <music> I'm wondering is how the Hell I ever saw hee haw because if she'd come in the room and earth she'd heard it from the kitchen she would have been like turnoff that hillbilly music. Are you thinking to friend maybe or maybe it was a thing. After after I moved up to Alaska in the seventies seventies to live with my dad maybe he didn't monitor my hee haw consumption weird times because it was syndicated right so you know in the middle of the afternoon or nine o'clock at night Suddenly Hee haw might be on some weird channel fourteen and it play. I watched the tunnel exit plays really well with young boys. There's all these corny comedy acts like literally Courtney in a cornfield yet right and there's also all these kind of winsome southern beauties with their shirts tied under their their chests and you know skimpy overalls. There's a lot of slip on banana peels. I mean when I wear broad when I played <hes> the grand old opry which well the long winters. I'm sorry not Gerald Opera Backdrop win. When the loners played the Reimann Auditorium Horton in Nashville? There's a bronze statue of Minnie Pearl Right in the lobby of the of the Reimann and we walked in and I I stopped with her and and like how and why Minnie Pearl girl that was so that was a lot of the appeal of Hee Haw Demy is opened up this whole other world that had its own set of celebrities. Yeah like Minnie Pearl apparently is some kind of country singer but Roy Clark Herman Cohen I mean Bucko is a genuine talent of of Bakersfield country changed the face of music but I didn't know that at the time I just thought of them as kind of Vaudevillians but all these kind of odd celebrities like mini protest has price tags on her hat and she and Grandpa Jones are going to bicker about that and there's one guy that he maybe maybe he's a country singer but mostly he's just they're making fat jokes about him and this lady must be a country singer. Her teeth are blocked out it was it was the same reason why I got into wrestling like there's all these you got to figure out all these relationships and this guy used to be a bad guy but now he's not bader a jail gimmick but now he's now he's a born again or Zack's this exact same experience with that show I remember trying to decode it and being fascinated by it and but it was at least when we were consuming it it was kind of hand in hand with that late seventies early eighties rural <hes> revival that whether we've talked about before and trucker culture right that was picard banded and urban cowboy three. You can't keep it down. You can try to purge the rural you can take the country out of the out of the country the country out of the boy yeah you can take the Hick shows off C._B._S.. But they're just going to migrate great over to to see Reynolds who I guess you can take the country out of the country but you can't take the country out of the country her. That's the way you just said it. There's also kind of a racial element here. I mean if you think about it. The under the the subtext of all television for the first twenty years of American T._V. is this is for middle class white people right watch this. There are very few black people in any of these shows that you've met right now. There's hardly even see Red Foxx. There's barely Immigra- immigrants or Italian. It'd be novel if there was an Italian character. Well you know the the dean. Martin show was playing over late night T._v.. Somewhere he's the safe edge of the he's. The knife edge of Italian immigration integration was happening on T._v.. Like slowly in fits and starts right Carson was really good about having everybody on his show and you had <hes> Bill Cosby. There was big news. Yeah I mean there were there were above the line means could do it but it was big news. When Captain Kirk had a black lady answering his phone calls like look how daring this we put an Asian and an African American lady in a Scott all three kinds of people there are and even that show had to have a good good ol southern Dr O.? One you remember the groundbreaking kiss between who and Kirk right was like I think would the first interracial kiss on T._v.. I think it's often called that yeah and of course they've been mind controlled. They don't WanNa kiss so that's their cover but when you think about it but you know the idea that this in the sixties as black consciousness and black tower is on the rise <hes> and civil rights era all this stuff is on the rise C._B._S. is going back to these kind of Lily White Appalachian towns. It's not a good look right and Silverman is his hip to this right and if you you know he's got kind of raced liberal sounding name guy a freedom rider liberal sounding beginning a chemical element nice and if you've listened to Gil Scott Heron's kind of spoken word the revolution will not be televised piece. He actually named checks C._B._S. Rural T._v. twice as something he sees as a problem he says greenacres the beverly hillbillies and Hooterville junction will no longer be so damned relevant because black people will be on the street looking for a brighter day. He says the theme Song Will Not Be Written by Jimmy Webb of Francis Key nor sung by Glen Campbell. Tom Jones Johnny cash Glen Campbell and Johnny cash to kind of country types who had these very popular variety shows where they were trying to appeal to a broader audience. Johnny cash was was trying to appeal to the to the speed addicted cross country truck driver honey watching back then you know you know he's he's. He's facing personal demons on T._v.. He's he's trying to cuddly C._B._S.. GRANDFA- Tom Jones is pretty complex character. Are these Welsh Tom Jones worlds. He doesn't fit into that country listing right but among the things among the names that kilos name checking our this kind of Country Fried vibe TV it should be. Remember was also against the moon landing. Well look if you could cancel beverly hillbillies. Wouldn't you wouldn't kind of a wash. When was the last time you watched your home movies? If you're like most there's a box in your closet. The video tapes film reels and photos that don't get watched worse. They're degrading hi. I'm nick and I'm Adam ten years ago. We started legacy box to help. Families convert their aging media to digital. Here's how it works. Phil Legacy box with your camcorder tapes film reels end photos we professionally digitize and send them back on D._V._D.'s thumb drives or the cloud ready to watch and share legacy box is the world's largest most trusted home movie and photo digitize her over four hundred fifty thousand families abuse legacy box and we've been featured on Good Morning America Rachel Ray and the today show dust off those recorded moments and preserve your family's history so it can be easily passed down for generations experienced peace of mind and enjoy reliving the glory days order your legacybox today visit legacybox WCHS dot com slash forty and for a limited time get forty percents off your order. That's legacybox dot com slash forty for forty percent off legacybox dot com slash forty the main reason all this happened though is not so shoulder or or even socioeconomic it was straight up economic advertisers were starting to care less about the overall number of people watching this show and who was watching this is the birth of the coveted. Whatever it is nineteen to thirty-five demographic hatred they re this is the dawn of the man in the gray flannel suit crunching numbers and they realized wait a second we can find out if affluent people are watching the show and therefore buying the cars and the dishwashers? I'm sure it was Madison Avenue that invented the concept. It's Madison Avenue all the way. This is a d'andre Pereira thing and suddenly it didn't matter if thirty million people are watching mayberry R F D if it's not the right people right if it's old people if it's two people from flyover states can start to see this data now well it depends I mean if you're trying to sell winstons or Chesterfield's. That's who you want but if you want to sell washing machines or or a brand new buick yeah you WanNa get you WanNa cut at the the fat out cut the Cup the corn poll now get the cornpone Bacon Lard out. Get all of them big in largs out suffering. Silverman is smelling the future here. He sees which way it smells was like jet fuel. He's which way the wind is blowing and even though these shows are number one shows now like his networks going to be left in the dust if they are still kind of chasing this hold rural hell see that's that's the kind of bold leadership ownership that media companies the media companies tend to be chasing fads. It's <hes> it's rare when you see a visionary who even when they're on top can pivot away from old people because one thing that happened is this kind of created for the first time this cult of Youth in American T._v.. I'm previously families watched all these shows together. They were designed for that but suddenly Fred Silverman after cancelling. All these shows has all these empty space in his program and he replaces Jason With these C._B._S.. Forward thinking shows for boomers that we were talking about earlier all in the family and all it's kind of socially aware spinoffs Mary Tyler Moore single eighty in the big city and all those spin-offs ruin on the variety shows the the red skelton variety shows get replaced with sunny and share or flip Wilson so it's a more diverse counterculture friendly five but there was some hold over in the form of like the Waltons but it was much more interesting. It wasn't as like her dirk. It was much more so fred. Silverman is the one who brings the Waltons to C._B._S.. After the rural purge and it does kind of stand out in the schedule maybe you know maybe he's counter programming little house the prairie which is a big hit on N._B._C. or the other way around actually I bet little house came after the ones but you're right the waltons the premise darker I mean it's more of a drama. It's a it's. The depression mom has tuberculosis. It's not an idealized rural America. It's like it's more of this was my earl hammers childhood. The guy who created the show is John boy right and so it's kind of him remembering from a modern perspective what these times we're really like right super sort of hard scrabble. I mean remember the Waltons and Little House on the prairie kind of being they those shows didn't appeal to me as a kid. They felt a little bit too. There was too much Gingham. There's a lot of Gingham but it was too dramatic. I didn't you know have the dog dies is the dog didn't want the where the red fern grows I wanted to you know to be on a on a boat full of love and when it comes to action shows he replaces Dad's Westerns with kind of a new grittier set of shows set in cities you get Kojak instead of gunsmoke and you get all these Quinn Martin shows like Canon and honestly that kind of leads to all our modern shows where there's a flawed a doctor house or whatever kind of an eccentric Eric in the middle of a procedural solving solving tonight's crime or tragedy or whatever it is and that yes so that became a whole genre the Starsky and Hutch the right the Rockford files. I mean they were all hardly any police shows before this time which is weird yeah you had you had police procedural were much more like detective Harry Mason Yeah but these are all like cool dudes in leather jackets who are doing undercover like vice work in not just a city but not a nice part of the city. You know it's it's very far from from dodge city. Although this would have been a time when the when American anxiety was focused on the unrest the urban unrest that had was also what kind of a new phenomenon in this decade right. Let's send Kojak in their he'll figure it out baby who loves baby so you but you kind of create a separate track of media. The old people can still watch their their gone. They're wild kingdom on syndicated TV but they've effectively been marginalized. This is the moment when American culture passes them by and says flip through all three channels. None of this stuff is for you anymore. Look there's like young people in Black People does rock music sick like right like this is not for you and so maybe this is the beginning of kind of the the creation of a of a ghetto for old people in the media which eventually gives us the ability to create limbaugh Fox News for them because they've they've been told the real. The mainstream programming is not for you. It's really interesting that the old people of rush limbaugh of course would have been worthy movers of the people of but but even their parents but I think when all in the family came on on again talking to my mom she she was in computers at the time and a lot of her coworkers were though pressed white short sleeve shirt pocket protector types that put a man on the moon but they weren't very progressive and she said she she carpool to work because that was the style of the time and the other three guys in her car pool would sit in recap the previous night's all in the family episode. You're unaware that Archie bunker was the was the cat the rails to be laughing all they were. They admired him as he told off those hippies and those and then words you can't say and she just sat and kept <hes> you know just like head down these guys. She worked with her friends but when they started talking about all in the family she couldn't even venture the idea that that that Archie bunker was a you know wasn't sarcastic character. Was You know we were not meant to see him as the hero the show that's funny that these are not a refrigerator repairman or whatever that these are educated but computer people so educated. We see the same thing today. Computer people are turning the Libertarians the second their stock options are on the line or whatever their progressivism is millimeter thick but it's easy to see it's it's it could conceivably be easy to identify with Archie Bunker but the spin offs from that show where Maude the Jeffersons. Means Good Times. I mean none of those shows. Are you going to go into. There's no window character. There mobs getting an abortion Jewish Everson is is <hes> railing against the honky crackers although George Jefferson was of a sort of clownish figure but <music> but there weren't any white heroes in that show not at all and this alienation also potentially leads to kind of an East West divide in America. Some people had P._G.. Folders exactly hardee's Carl's junior line. It's really interesting if you look at electoral electoral maps from the area following the rural purge the in the West today we think of the Pacific states is kind of this reliable progressive board but between nineteen sixty when Nevada went for Nixon then in nineteen sixty eight Washington went for Humphrey and in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight Washington Oregon went for Dukakis between those two years. There is not a state west of Texas that votes for a Democrat. Isn't that weird well when you look at the Ford Carter election. It's it's pretty much a straight line down. America like everything to the left of the line is read every into the right of the line is blue and I kind of wonder if canceling all the westerns and kind of telling the frontier ear hey these or the frontiers insist is frontier. I would say people telling the frontier. Hey the but you know your people are from the frontier so you can call it. Whatever you want it to kinases frontiers fight? I'm tired of having this discussion with well-meaning idiots but this is the moment when the west kind of gets fed up with the eastern elites telling them you know not only are we going to not only. Are we telling you where your herds can graze right. We're also not going to let you watch bonanza anymore like you. Don't get to see yourselves on TV. It's now all eastern elites again and this is the era of the rise of Ronald Reagan probably from that same thing is that Ronald Reagan gets up on stage and says I'm part of the sagebrush rebellion. You guys like I'm one of you know. The prominent Republicans of this era Nixon and Reagan were Californians who were plausibly say we're the future of America not these old timey southern Democrats. You know like look to the future with US Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan the men of tomorrow because these were the beginnings of the the water wars the bureau of land management. I mean the I mean most of it comes down to that stuff not not gunsmoke getting cancelled. It's weird that they would they would posit themselves as the modern vital and vural future but also we'll have that connected to this sort of western cowboy revisionism. It's led a hand for sure like they saw how Kennedy got elected and thought well. We gotta do that. Even if it doesn't match the platform much yeah sure sure because yeah the southern the southern Democrats. Let's had really shown their hand. Throughout the sixties civil rights here yeah they just <hes> they were hard to admire and and there wasn't yet that Urban Democrat coalition it wasn't it hadn't it hasn't become an a <hes>. I was about to city unstoppable force now but it still seems like it's fairly stoppable so I don't know I can't really say that petticoat junction getting cancelled led to the Reagan revolution and Fox News the invention of the modern kind of ghettoized media blinders but I'm not not saying it and it all started because you know Fred Silverman and <hes> did not want to be the network of the past Pat Buttram who played Mr Haney on greenacres famously lost his job from this and famously said the nineteen seventy one was the year that C._B._S.. killed everything with a tree in it including lassie the presence of the southern United States as a cultural force as as a rebellious force is something that we see over and over we try to account for it somehow but of course the south has a population relation of one hundred twenty something million people while if you give them Texas and Florida right if you give them Texas and Florida and so it's a full third of the population of the country more than a third yeah and so the idea of the South Americans are fixated on it. Maybe a maybe even beyond it's it's certainly beyond its geographical and population significance within the country we think about the south all the time because is because of our our relationship with it is so troubled and you know the South Has Texas end and Florida but you could also say that these days it has Kansas Nebraska Oklahoma sure always had it's maybe losing Virginia North Carolina but it's creeping up into Iowa yeah right yeah so I think every time there's a rural purge one place you get a rural splurge somewhere else and that concludes the rural purge entry one zero nine one dot p. s. six five three certificate number three six eight four one in the boundless future links in the unlikely event social media still exists in Europe hair facebook. Twitter and instagram are archived at at Omnibus Project. You can see Ken and me finish rising the south. That's always do on our Social Media Atkin Jennings and John Right but as I southern food and possibly he has supporting players in my family. My mom has this this deep deep deep northern ISM but my father's family from Kentucky. That's my dad's family is so so we grew up eating Collard Greens and southern food is very deepen me. Southern food didn't make all the way to me and my dad was was ardent fifties Liberal Democrat but he was doing that in in like angry response to his parents for to his mother in her family who were just as sons how come it didn't bounce back. How come you didn't rebel against Your Dad? I play the Banjo Nascar. Everyone says so no it's funny that the migration out here to the North West my my dad really embraced unions and Organiz not just organized labor but the the organized labor principle of liberal politics here and there was there was no other air in the room when I was growing up it wasn't it wasn't like you could have a different theory. It's also not a great city for soul food Seattle to this day. Where would you go for southern cookie and Seattle there are places they pop up right and say like southern cooking over here in the now go to business but we do definitely Kenan?

Now Shannon you like slogans, would you like to know what Mount Sterling what the name of their their slogan for their town? Small Town America. There are small town in America at the wrong with that. It's Fox or I like it. You like Shannon buys that if it isn't that that's a pretty sort of. I don't WanNa. Use The word air, but it's a little arrogant. You're basically saying we are too small town a typical small town America in say typical. They said, we are quintessential small town America isn't that a little arrogant? Tau, package it here if they say, we are a small town in America than yeah of course you are. But if you're trying to claim all smell a small town, just like you, I don't know I think if you're. A representative of small town. America and they've gone so far as they now have once a year smalltown America Day what according to. Well. That's not what this is. This is a different thing called small town America Day. Well. They're proud of it. They represent all of us small town did all the other small towns agree to? Mount Sterling to be your official representative for all small towns in America. I'm good with it. I like. It was named for stirling. Scotland. But they spelled sterling role. So stirling, Scotland, the person who did it said this reminds me of stirling Scotland. Let's name it sterling but stirling Scotland is S.. T. I. R. L. I. G. AND THEY THEY NAMED IT S T. So this is another town that they misspelled. The second one we've had in recent weeks misspelled it and the mount in Mount Sterling's because it is on top of an ancient burial ground didn't know this is you know this was an ancient burial ground and a town in Scotland misspelled. Interesting. Fun fact there you go. Court days. Of course, everybody knows Mount Sterling got canceled this year. Yes. Lot of controversy about getting. People are very upset. First Time it's ever been canceled. It of course I researched this for the book the used to be that in Mount Sterling, they would only have court. Once a month. And it was they decided that basically all the towns farmers, etc. it was decided that the once a month day everybody had court they would also bring all these goods to sell and once a month they would have court days where everybody would do their commerce while court was in session hints the Court Yeah Right now they do it once a year and it's just a big huge flea market but that's the trudell how it got started. Interesting. Did you know that that was called court days because of court because of actual court? Yes. Would bring their goods. Have you ever been to court days? I have not I know people who how? They're really proud of course as bad -solutely wild I've not been either but I've heard people talking about Shannon have you been? Oh Yeah. I used to go as a kid. Back whatever it is that you want to see sold. Good, bad or indifferent. Everything anything. Whatever it's all there somewhere. Yeah. Guys walking around with guns they sell no. Yes. Not just guns like guns that you go. WHOA. What's happening here? That's what usually people walk away. They tell me they're like, you don't understand that's a trump. God over the place yes, it is. You can get guns in your kettle corn right there at the same spot the way I always explain it is if you want any product known to man, with Hank, Williams jr junior's face on it. Go to coordinate. You think do I wanna Hank Williams Junior Bible Gordon. Seems like an Ebay. With. Hank Williams junior diapers they got a are they all set up around the courthouse square? Everywhere.

So you don't know. Nelson Okay Gotcha. Found the Bouma it looks like it's some kind of chocolate with the cream center. Okay. I'm not familiar with it, but apparently, it is very famous. Now they have Shannon they're known for their downtown. They're very proud of downtown because they have lots of like neat little restaurants and knickknacks, doors, etc. Can I give you some names of places in downtown? Mount? Spoonful of. Sugar. That's sounds like a great place it does doesn't it tomatoes and flames? Who May remember the show tomatoes employees that sounds familiar yes there was a pizza places good. Okay. To place to do a show was there I went and they let me do it at tomatoes in. The Grill Father Barbecue. Now, the good place father loved that real father, Berry Man's tasty treat. ooh.

He seems kind of do go for the Chili. down. The just an open right now the two sisters Pumpkin Patch which people tell me is the greatest pumpkin patch in Kentucky's not heard it have you were you ever someone who liked to carve the pumpkins? Yeah I would do that with with my family when I was younger haven't done it in several years but I, would get into the pumpkin carving Middlesbrough they had this street, they called Pumpkin Alley. And they would put like thousands of pumpkins in their yards. They have a Saturday Saturday and Sunday where everyone in this town would come I i. was part of this. Sometimes, you'd Carve Pumpkins you do your things and then they would make the street and it was just constant pumpkins and in the weeks leading up to Halloween, everyone would drive and go up and down pumpkins. Cool. That's cool. You know what's that place Transylvania and they put the hundreds of Pumpkins on those stairs that's Transylvania college that. It's a building at Transylvania. L.

Allegedly, it says it's written by Bob Dylan Yeah Beautiful Song Right I like William Toys version also William toy good bill toy bill. That's right. One person writes Matt. How Know Blue Mondays I don't think you are even Kentucky and that is the Quintessential Kentucky Candy. Really know is it really? Well, we're all have been in Kentucky, Long Time and none of us have heard of it for different parts of Kentucky. Yes. Shannon. Is the quintessential. I don't think. So now what would you say is though? We have a baby ruth. Factory and I would say they're bourbon balls. That's what I would say I'm not a bourbon ball span but if you were saying to me what is the Quintessential Kentucky? Candy I'd probably say Bourbon balls or EMINEM's. Swedish Fish Swedish fish yeah when you say malls Bourbon Vodka. Yeah I think. So one person writes Matt. Every time I've been to Montgomery, county people like to fight how come you never mentioned them on your fighting right? They're not even the top ten of fights. That's how you get yourself in a fight to say I mean no offense to him. First of all remember when I say this I fighting anybody no matter. What if you could be from what we decide was the least Fighting County Oldham Oldham Yeah. I. Ain't GonNa fight them either I'm not fighting anybody. But if I was having the battle, Royal Montgomery County is not in the top ten. I've never thought of McGovern caddy being fighting county. No. I don't want the county's to know how to wrestle and I don't want the counties in the mountains. I don't consider. Mount Sterling Mountains by the way. Do you know I don't I? Don't I don't think it is I don't really consider them eastern Kentucky I don't either I think Mason County. Montgomery. County Bath county clear. What to put those folks in? Northern Kentucky but I also don't think they're eastern. Eastern I think just kind of their own sort of River Ohio River counties. Kentucky. Where you put I don't know where you put them either I don't feel like they fit into either either either bunch although workdays has an eastern Kentucky. Feel no doubt about that. But I don't think like if you go in downtown Mount Sterling you will not feel like you're in the mountains of Kentucky. What's the next county over rally rally I? Think that's the ground is Mount I. Agree I think once he gets around, it's you're in the mountains but for whatever reason, I don't feel that way about Montgomery Weird who's next? Let's go to mark mark. WHAT'S UP Mark?

We get back to the phones did you see that they interviewed? Davy. Name. savion minutes from CREIGHTON. WHO said that the teams philosophy this year the slogan is know layups. Like that I, love it GonNa take that defensive mentality. We ain't gonNA give you anything almost said a bad word. We're not gonNA. Give. You anything. But I mean that's like defense I it's not like points. It's no layup. So layoffs. Going to have that mentality and there's So many new guys. I mean we don't know any of the big men but in the few clips we've seen I mean those guys can job. Lance? Where is Jackson? They already have the link and I believe midst told a story of where blocked off the glass then. Jackson hit it and then Jacob topping come up and grabbed it off the room. So all three of them are challenging we're GONNA be really long again this year cow loves link. and. We're going to be really long. We're going to have a lot of dudes who are athletes I mean in many ways team cow once and just just just having that back there and if if we if SAR becomes eligible, you gotta five guy back there there's kind of your your big but post player guy these athletic guy could just go get it. You know if you don't get that five guy back there I hope these guys can shoot I'm the only thing that worries me about this team is Dr another team that's like insanely athletic and can't shoot. Yeah Yeah we I I don't know who I mean look bad bj Boston is a good shooter tears. Clark's pretty good shooter but I I just don't know who is the WHO's the shooter who's The guy on the team you're like I mean we've been we've been fortunate the last few years with quickly and hero, and before that monk, we've been fortunate to have dudes that we're like I know that guy can make a show. WHO's that guy this year? Do we have one this year I mean honestly Dante Allen has an opportunity to do it because there is an opening he is a good shooter. Yeah. So Anyway. I don't I don't like this person making fun of me for not knowing how you've puchased having Pumpkins is sitting there. It feels like you gotta put something on them. I'll send you a picture I. Think it looks really Nice. We have this like a truck on that look yeah like an old. Truck and I think in the back, it has like barrels and hey, maybe more pumpkins big on the Pumpkins and it says haunted house on on the front of our door claiming that literally to you have a ghost. Yeah. People know that there is an active go talk literally became you became an adult during Co.. Like I get up and just watch my yard. So what candies are you gonNA give out Days No. We're thinking going off script and things that are hard to get from childhood like Dunker Ruse Gushers. So I'm putting in some quarters for the throwback candies realism president, but I think the younger parents would appreciate that probably still the candy you think we'll have trick or treat they've not said yeah. Think at City Kentucky or city. Kentucky city a Lexington said GonNA WHO Already. Been said sure though encouraged. ME. Why wouldn't you have it? There's no with the people. You're with the people that you live with, and then when you go to people's houses like. You're already get on. Shannon's rights got mask on the hand off.

He deal because it was mainly all Lexington schools and then all these poor kids from the Gummy County and Jessica. Coat and This kid from the projects pretty much. Game Soccer Balls and taught him talking on they wouldn't the final four in eighty seven eighty, eight eighty mountain. Awesome That sounds like a good movie. Do you live in Montgomery County now? Sure okay. So we ever Montgomery County which of the downtown places I mentioned the sort of tomatoes and flames and saucy flake, and all that stuff places downtown is the best to visit. And I really love to manage influence but I would definitely suggest going to Bruce Hunt and you can take a tour of back every a blue Monday is in candy dipped in chocolate. And it's super super rich but when we were. Kids my mom used to tell us is coconut. So we wouldn't have any interest in actually. Really Delicious. I appreciate it. Thank you for your call. You know maybe that's the thing. Maybe that's what I'll give out so that I if I'm being quintessential, Kentucky Yeah it sounds like are they expensive? It feels like they're probably a little expensive I guess somebody sent us a picture of the of the little package. I've seen those little packages I don't if I've ever had one. Yeah. Tomorrow by the way in case you're wondering is is Morgan Canning West Liberty? Yes. So we will all you Morgan County folks be ready. WHO's next? Let's go to mow mow how're you? Hey doing good guys. Are you all doing great what's out two? Things. one. I'm a huge James Griffiths fan myself and. Two years ago I was looking through some. Actually, read a biography called Andy and dawn, and I've seen that kind of. Your idealistic view of Andy Griffiths crushed you should you should read that but You know one of the stories in there I thought found I found was interesting. Kinda highlights that you know Andy wanted to be Star you know around season five you remember. Barney. Don knotts leaves the show and. Just kind of Kinda goes. They couldn't find a replacement that was good. Yeah. And so. What was put out there was that Don knotts wanted to go and do do movies and he did deal you remember he did some of those Disney movies but the the real story is that don went to Andy and asked because basically just getting paid as one of the other actors he didn't have a share in. And he went to to Andy and he asked if he could basically buy into the show and get a larger cut Andy was going to have to take that out of his share and he was just unwilling to do that and so So they they parted ways but they didn't show up. Yeah. Yeah. It goes to show. You know you have to know who you're stars are and I appreciate I talked to you appreciate the call. So for instance, US KS are. You all three of you play an important role. If we lost any of you, it wouldn't be the same it could still be good. It wouldn't be the same and you have to realize that and make sure people have their worth and their value. It always I. Think is fans disappoint you when you hear that they had problems because. You. Know they were playing a character on the show. That's what. Andy was such a good guy. Then you find that in real life, he was a third. Heard. Exactly a good actress. You remember he also wouldn't put a bullet in his go. Well, I didn't carry a gun no right and Barney had one bullet in this pocket, right? When the how it was. Yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah one bullet and that was it. You get one shot. Let's play a quick game in years just me and you shave him name and Andy Griffith character. We'll go back and forces you Mrs One I you ready. To. You want me to start go Andy Andy Barney. Thelma Lou. Ernest T. bess floyd. Otis Howard SPRAGUE OB. What am I what am I missing here goober? Gomer. You say Helen Corrupt yet now, Ellen crump. Ellie Mae Walker. Oh Gosh. Shortly Darling. Girls. Oh. Oh Darling. Darling. Say. You. Can't say oh, darling three. To, eighty one I said floyd down the LOO heart I waited I sent them a little winner. Thank you very much. That we Got To be more it's hard when you're on the spot. Oh yeah it is hard when you're almost. Thought. We did well I. Think we did well to you and I are proud of each other. Let's take a break very bad art the. Blue light across the bluegrass county by county virtual tour presented by the Kentucky Office of Highway. Safety. After this to talk to Matt. Jones and the crew called the Clark pump and shop online at five, Oh, five, seven, one, ten, eighty, or one, eight, seven, seven, four, eighty. Now back to Kentucky Sports Radio on Talk Radio Tanning. Crow. Okay, this song is called Small Town America, and it is about Mount Sterling by a young man named Jeff Vice. Hurt, we'll take your. And then Spot, Song. Along True Are you surprised there are so many songs about towns in Kentucky like I had no idea that you will. I'll say this after I moved here I realize People Kentucky have so much pride about where they're from about their their county air. But you guys all say what county you're from a rope in Indiana we don't say that you say about your city but here you're so proud of where you're from I I can see that there's just some. Pride about your your route you know where you're from I. Don't I don't think people have that where other places especially not where I'm fro- yeah one best rights Matt after hearing that segment of you and Shannon naming eighty Andy Griffith characters. The SEC network has offered you a five year deal. That's a good question. Do that why wouldn't they I? Mean? That's what you're looking for from your radio right is, can you name Andy Griffith Care we didn't mention Sarah the operator off Sarah. Shannon mentioned Rafe Hollister. Ellie May clampitt. From. She was on the Andy Griffith show also, Ellie Mae. Ellie May Walker Ellie May clampitt different show. I'll watch somebody wrote that that's I was right Ellie Mae Walker. There was Malcolm the British Guy Yeah. He was terrible. We. Don't even want to talk about him. Most of them we did we did a good job. I'm very, very proud of you. So back to the start of the show, we a Livia sorry, we feel good going to be eligible just had a little tidbit coming here. Let's go to confirm that my and the take of. That news about the NCAA council is good news for Va. Sorry. I had someone who knows better than I wink at me and say you're dead on. So it sounds like this might be one positive from everything that's happened this year than any other year, they might not have been eligible. So that was apparently the thing you was waiting on. Was that exact thing? Yeah. If the if the SEC's just saying you have one year, the rule is one you can't play well now if he has actually two years, you're good the SEC can't prohibit him I wouldn't think so. So. Olivier saw let's go. We've been playing the guessing games since about what may June at least we? Think we know. I think now we're getting close to the moment that we can say. Will. Be. I'm at ninety. Three point eight percent right now that's that's a great percentage of I've lived my whole life at ninety three point eight percent so I feel good about it. What does it? mean. Question as a side note yesterday, we were eat last night we were eating in here during the titans game and we had a guy with this who said that we were way undercharging for that one type of yeah. So tell people what what he was talking about because it really fresh it really made me like surprised. To be honest I don't remember the exact name of Bourbon but we had one he said he charges for fifty dollars a poor place. Wanted. Shot and we charge nine. In fact, I'm going to run in there after the show he was arrested for nine dollars. No, he really was like dude you we should be you should be charging fifty dollars a thing here and I was like really and apparently you can buy. Cheaply but it's impossible to get. And so he he owns a bar and he was like I charged fifty dollars for that and he goes people pay it and so he ordered three shots and he thought it was going to be a hundred fifty bucks and it was thirty and he couldn't believe it. What are we doing? I'm sitting there looking at each other like well base. Patel. Just hand. One, hundred twenty bucks right here. What was the which Bourbon was I'm afraid I'm going there and getting it now it's. I don't WanNa say the wrong one I believe it was rock hill forms. I'm not positive on that. Yeah. But I think that was the one. So anyway, we need to recalculate. We had a couple up there that I've even been in today we should maybe rethink that one. So apparently, we have a lot better bourbon than I knew. Wow. So anyway. Who Snack Shannon Steve Steve WHAT'S UP Steve? Hancock case for awhile what's going on Steve? You. What they're doing, what you're doing at your KS Var. Grill is a beautiful thing taking bets. You know they used to call that bookmaking. They did now apparently, Tokay. Get arrested for it. What? The other thing I wanted to say was that On Always, people that have these signs in their yard you know Biden Harris and I don't want I know we don't like to get into political conversations but. Like, you always say we get more calls when we talk. Wait. are also trump's on. So you go ahead signs. I mean. Even. If you don't like trump. You positively think. That bad and Steve, you know I was so excited to hear you and you know I can't go down that road with you. So I mean I thought you were going to have like something that you know I can't do that. Okay. Let's go on. You know when whenever I call you our rights up down. So I just wanted to say on the On Sports Front. Yes and. I love to run. And when you get stopped running. When they stop you. You know you run they can't stop it. Keep running. Again I'm with we need to route Steve. Running down her throat. Run and I got I. got to run but thank you very much Steve. It's.

498: Soviet Satellite Hair

"Hello. Hello Maryland. Good, morning Dan. How are you? I'm doing well, how are you doing today? Oh pretty good had good. Good. Pretty good. Pretty tired. Yeah. I'm tired to. God. Why so tired. I don't know nobody cares I got. I. Got Busy Hating it You know I don't mind being calm time strain I don't like being busy. I also had had a you know I I would call it a dream. I have when I have what I call night thoughts. Okay and a dream is usually like a made up story that somebody says, Oh and you were there but it wasn't you and all that bs but night thoughts are just some kind of thing that comes into your head. You know are you conscious or unconscious when that's happening? Am I conscious during the night thoughts? Are you sleep or you wake? Island, the same sort of like little state as when one is dreaming I say yes. Yeah. Actually. I had a really good one lately I'll read you Nobel out last night I had this. Thought. And it was remembering the old Andy Griffith show. You Watch that when you're a kid of course, I did. Yeah. So you you roll in Goosey Freud the barber. Just. Wonder in just go in as an share and I, think people got haircuts approximately five times a week. Why rising haircut if it's free. It's I bet it was a fifteen cents as would be my. But the point is just wondering to get a haircut everybody on the Andy Griffith show indeed one everyone every man in the Andy. Griffith they're always had exactly the same haircut. Yes they cut. They had before because it's so maintained basically, just constantly giving you a trick I just based on my extensive knowledge of the forties and fifties which comes exclusively from TV. Yeah. It seems like. Men Women. Got Their hair done frequently, which meant you know getting it is sitting under the with the curling iron in all of the air blowing and all that stuff and men went in for shave and a haircut. Very. Frequently that that was a thing that you just you might do that on your way back from lunch and there's not a lot because he just wanted to finish Kim Kohn have when ordered somewhere to sit need a little extra time. Your friends are going to be there. You know that you sit down and all they're doing they're just they're not really doing you just they're just tick tick tick tick around with scissors, tick, tick, tick you know, and just cleaning just cleaning up. But if you do that every week, you don't have to go through the ordeal that is a modern day haircut. Well yeah, my mom I WANNA say. The phrase we would use you get your hair done. She will get her hair done usually once a week, it would be like A. Little Bit of cutting could be coloration You're you're very strange explanation of the tools involved I think eight of all sitting under a hairdryer with the magazine Cetera. But anyway, I don't know and I found myself yearning for that not so much earning for the Jim Crow South. But for the ability to just wander into a room and have exactly the same haircut all the time I found myself grieving because I looked in the mirror and I'm due for another covid haircut on right now. I'm going to say what I have. I'm going to describe what I have is Soviet. Satellite Hair not sputnik. Okay. One of the Soviet satellite states I look like a Romanian dissident I look a little bit. An unkempt Serb possibly. But you know got kind of kind of kind of big. Big Big. Point here but you know what? Maybe sputnik but I'm not loving it and also you know sometimes you wanNA place to lay down and you could be like What's his name Nick? Clarence, WHO's The guy? WHO's the guy in the jail cell? What was his name was his name Epstein? Epstein near you thinking of. Mr Cut hair. No. Not so Freud was the barber. who was the guy and self into the cell? The we call him a drug that seems a little I know I know. I, know you mean a Name Morris using the BG's what was his name. It's not Clarence Barber. It's not. It's not Freud the drunk what? What was his name? I don't know. So, satellite hair. I have I have a couple of things. You have a thing It's been really good one. I recently had and I looked at I'm I looked at, you know all the links you put in a bunch. Oh Yeah. That's interesting. Yeah. Definitely. At a little. Before we do that I had a little news something. that. I don't think that we got to talk about on this show before. But. There was a lawsuit. Between. Trying to look at the name of the band Taurus or something like that and led Zeppelin. About. You go you listen to beginning they had celebs up when had toured or at least on some shows of this, I think called Taurus Taurus I'm looking this up now put this in the show notes. That's the song. The song was called Taras I thought it was the band. The band I did too but it says it the opening the stairway to heaven is. To. My ears very close to a few bars from a song that Jimmy Page definitely heard live several times because they toured together and it says. The this'll been going on for years, Randy Wolf and the US band is named spirit and the song was called Taurus and Horth a apparently wolf performed as Randy California. That sounds like a character on like late eighties. MTV. He he drowned unfortunately drowned in ninety seven. So this brought by state and basically Jimmy page is like I never heard decide until recently but they toward together and it's clear that they had heard it and. You know whether whether this was an intentional I like to think that Jimmy page probably heard it and it just sort of crept into his subconscious mind and so when he decided years later to ride stairway vitit came out I, like to thenia any other person maybe Jimmy page break. I. Mean. He didn't credit. So many people in the first led Zeppelin album I sent. Nixon. So I like think it but I love to think that too. But but in reality probably he he heard it and liked it and said, nobody's heard of of Horace or spirit I here's the thing I have written back on the chain gang by the pretenders on three separate occasions I did I steal it. I did not I written at three chord progression that they got mostly probably from the kinks but I even wrote that lead line Darin Martin. Mound like Oh boy this is really good. I don't know where I got this from or you take George Harrison and I think the settlement or the the thing that happened with my sweet Lord was Oh. Yeah. Real Well I mean, it was kind of sort on the one hand. They said, yeah we don't think you deliberately stole this deliberately from he's so fine but Utah stolen from diesel finally it was might have been unconscious but that doesn't make it any less and he was found George Harrison was found guilty of that. I think he had for a lot of it over if your Zeppelin came out on top for this that's right in and out as Supreme Court decided not to take the case was that it I think so yeah. So it's you know that's interesting I just feel like our listeners care about Zeppelin and and it's interesting because. Would it be different if Randy California was still around saying I this Oh. As opposed to the trustees of his estate saying so. I get it. It's interesting I can't promise. I try not to over promise for these things I will try to find a really good Adam neely video that guy. Youtube that I like who talks about this in the context of or say a Katy Perry song the basically saying like you can't copyright there's been a bunch of good videos about this like you can't copyright a chord progression you can't copyright a feel you can't copy. You know what I mean. There's like just because these things sound the same well I mean it doesn't mean they are the same and my question for you Merlin is eventually won't won't musicians maybe this is more a question for for John Roderick won't it? For me I play guitar US won't they eventually run out of notes and there won't be any laughed and everything will just be you know there's only a certain number of notes to play one have all been played then no one else can play them. So eventually, it's all. Copy I have to imagine that's the case this was brought up by I believe. This is brought up by a famous member of royalty in in Austria. This was his concern with using too many notes. If you don't conserve some of the notes for the future, if I'm a dance goes out there and uses all the notes. I call him oats are he he goes he uses all the notes neutering, but he else to us now, what Celio are you going to do We just finished that movie. It's been great. So. The other thing no is like what if I just wrote a song that has all the notes in it and then I come out with the song now I own all the notes works I've got them all. Now in my soul doozy, put all the notes in an envelope you mail it to yourself and you never open ever open and that's called Castle doctrine. Doctrine. So we watched we watched immortal beloved I because I felt like you can't show that second it's not as good. I'll be honest. I Love Yup bombshell unloaded voice in the room you gotta be real careful. What order you watch. I love that movie I thought it was great I. Love Gary. Oldman I, love his performance in it but you can't show that after Amadeus you have to show at first because then otherwise it won't be great. Hunger Games after Battle Royale. Swears she never even heard of that. Really Yeah you seen that yes. Jesus eleven movie. But we. Go. He loved it. He loved Amadeus I knew he would. He loved it. He's very you know at the top of on on an apple TV screen. On the top right when you're looking at, you know a show or whatever it'll. It'll some of them will show the little like The rotten tomatoes and the popcorn scores. If, they're low. He will be very suspect of the movie and WON'T WANNA why? This only got fifty seven Gab trust me you're GONNA like it. Okay. But it only my guess you'll still prison our house would be oh, this only guy fifty-seven tomatoes. Yeah. But but he What's so frustrating though because man like that might be true eight times out of ten. Or as you say four times out of five but but you're gonNA miss out on a good one because you're obsessed with the tomatoes like don't miss a good thing because. He didn't like it yeah. Yeah. So we. We we watched it. And he he loved it and stone sees a boobs are out. Yes but that was okay that was fine. Man. Dumb But we have more content last week I think probably any episode we've ever for sure can even cumulatively over of four hundred, ninety, eight episodes plus but we watched the director's cut. Of this movie which has twenty minutes of restored. Scenes that had originally been cut and so I read an article, an interview with the director about the time that he came out with the director's cut version of it. And he had said that you know this was back in a time. When is like we were making a movie about classical music and a composer had been dead for hundreds of years and He like compared to the other movies that were coming out at the time and he's like in here we had this hour long movie that we didn't know of anyone was gonna they had no idea would win literally every award in every country for every. Sorry Tacoma Dancer. Okay Mulas Foreman Yeah Okay and interesting. Yeah and so he's like so we were in agreement that we had to cut a bunch of it and it was still like a two and a half hour movie which was considered way too long. But when he's like so what I did is when I restored it, he's like I returned it to what was the original script and there's like twenty minutes of additional material in there. That I think I think that's a it didn't feel like too long the movie to me by current standards I. Think you know compared to like infinity war, which was eight hours visited feeling. So long so I one. Yeah. I. I feel like obviously, this differs hugely from. Studio Studio directed or actor like fan to fan but I feel like the thought on. Expanded Edition Director's edition has kind of changed a little bit over time. It's one thing to say, well, you know. Terry Gilliam got a pretty raw deal with the studios at it of Brazil and. I mean inexcusable like what they did to that movie's really bad But does that mean that like a restoration director's cut makes it better? I don't know. Obviously there's a certain director that does stuff with DC was a lot of discussion about trying to get this version of one movie that he has been i. feel like I read something I was but. But where the quote unquote director's cut I think in the end Ridley Scott likes the theatrical version better because I on there's also I feel like there's pressure from the studios to put out a new version. Calling. It the whatever cut or the whatever addition you don't even like you know, of course, you know you hate to kill your darlings but what gets up on the screen? You come back to that what five ten years later and go ooh Fun I get to restore all this stuff and in some cases like in the case of the Godfather there's some really great stuff that they ended up cutting out that they restored for the. You know the TV version Coppola supervised but I don't think it always makes it better and I wanna say I'd have to look this up but I believe really Scott said that he actually prefers the theatrical to the director's cut sometimes it's good sometimes it's not but just like you know I Should be some kind of disclaimer Merlin there should be something that says what the director prefers. As a little byline I don't prefer this version unlike the director's cut even though it's the director's cut I don't like it as much, and that should be on the cover of the thing when you go to buy it or it. Yeah. That's right. You should have to read you. You should have to read it out loud. That's what I'm saying it's a good idea. Let's see. Here's good. One last week I lost the recipe for blankets and for my father. is a thought a dream slash. Last week I lost the recipe for blankets and for my father, the covid plants and plant pots are missing, but they still smell the truth is we never found the rocks after we move plus the rocks and dissolved from international issues employees. The plywood restroom at the old dream school is dark and still narrated by Reflejo. Everyone is in my way and I'm out here trying to save the universe walk is a contract. So I sigh as I do very rhythmic park were all over your family one morning all the people under a certain height just disappeared and it was the saddest loss they were so little and they all loved wearing hats. So should get more sleep. Yeah. Now are you when you're writing this stuff? Are you in the dream state? Are you a conscious as this? Right? After you open your eyes to write it is this a recollection? Here's the thing and I was on a podcast when I I read this aloud a different podcast get whereas guest inc and I said, here's the problem. The problem to me is when I hear someone maybe I am just very psychically deficient relax storytelling skills. But when somebody says to me a dream and it's basically a cogent story, you know what my responses Your embellishing that to have it makes sense in the air. The sample class you're you're a you want that to sound good in the air because you're telling a story now is that really what happened because that's a lot more sensible than anything that happens in my dreams my dreams are more like any part of speech can be any part of speech to put it in a way that a awaking person might understand the everything is everything in my dreams and like it's and then they don't trouble me usually because they are such a. Such a Free Association ride in some ways. So and so whatever whatever I put out onto the under the typing, the comes out of my brain. That's that's that's the night thought. Because goes in the book. Book. got a couple of things. You gotTA thing kick off with maybe something that you like, yeah. We actually have an interesting one this time it's some it's an it's another show. It's a, it's a another podcast. That wants us to. Help spread the word about it love podcasts and and so What they sent they sent over. A couple episodes for me to listen to. And I really I. I enjoyed it, and that's why I don't listen to a lot of podcasts. You would think I have an obligation to listen to every podcast like literally every podcast it's me. And for while I did I, was listening I would play them all at once. And that's the way. Now you own the mall copyright, I just put I printed them out put them envelopes envelopes. Don't open it. Yep Yep Texas. So. In this case though I found I, really enjoyed an how what's the chances that they would send me an episode I. Don't know. Did they pick this? Did they know it was going to appeal to me? I don't know but they're in there they have the first episode of their second season. I think there's still I mean I may not be settled with the name of the show. I'm getting too. I don't think that I'm supposed to say this is like embargo. Maybe it's not embargoed maybe Oh. My dream episode four voting promoting something you're not allowed to talk no allowed to talk about kept mentioned I'm allowed to talk about episode one of Season Two not episode four. So I'll talk about but the episode one is the one. This is right in. Mali. Okay. So now I reveal the name, this is what they call in show Business Merlin's they call building anticipation. Okay. So that's what I'm doing. Mystery the name. Say it again because I interrupted you learning a lot right now just a you know it's team history that is the name of the podcast. and. The first episode how much more right up how could this be? So from the nineteen fifties, the nineteen seventies. SACO, the watch company which I love I, my Seko's and. What they did is they had two different watchmaking factories that were competing against each other to make the best movement. The movement is the engine of a Mechanical Watch. It's the thing that keeps the time and makes it accurate and gives it the functions and complications that come from this and the movement is everything. And what it did is they were trying to drive the company forward to be better than the Swiss to be the best watchmakers in the world. Is it a Japanese company? Yes, Seko's Japanese and and they discovered the power of constructive competition, an inhouse rnd and how these dueling factories can could compete in a in a way that they were still friends because any successes that they had were success for them as a whole the company as a whole, but creating the sense of competition between these two. Sibling Factories it's so cool. So that's the that's the gist. Of what team mysteries about it's a podcast tell stories of teams who work together in new and unexpected ways to achieve really cool thing. So each episode tells a story each story they'll be these practical lessons for for you for your team, how you're running your business and they've done so many different things. It's mind boggling they've got a I don't WanNA spoil too much of a day going underwater caves in northern. Thailand to lake study how divers and medics and soldiers free to group of trap teenagers I mean like he's crazy what they've put into the show. I don't WanNa list too many of them because it's going to I want people to go and listen to G- I actually enjoyed this. So this was part of my sneak peek of of of their season two and it's great and so they'll be a link in the show notes but obviously just look for Team Street T. E. A. M. I. S. T. Right Anywhere you listen to podcasts and they'll be lincoln the show notes for it but go search for the show you'll find it and I recommended. There's some really cool stories with practical value for for what you do. In your work. So thanks very much a teamster for making this show. Possible. Thanks team but. Let's see what's the order of operations here I've got to think about address thing I wanNA do. These links were grade. We're going to do yours first. You had a thing about business things. Yeah. We can do that. So this is something and I don't mean to sort of single out the company, but they're they're the ones that posted this and they are. About to put someone on blast just so i? No, no, no this came out in June, and so one of the things that we've been working on in fireside is integrating with other services especially ones that allow people to connect more with their listeners and get. You know in some cases get support whether it's through member fuller Patriot or or companies like that I've noticed that you added that didn't you have the headline dingus thing in their? integrations with different things by the way I'm not shutting yawn I like Dan fine but I is really good. We use a free today and it gets my Okeydokey I appreciate that Merlin. It really is. It's really you're so good at this stuff It's really it's really a joy to us. There's other podcasts here's flag anybody but. And you did not ask for this endorsement but sometimes people, it feels like people kind of stop at the point nine of something and like it's good enough and that's where it stays for three years until the required and shutdown and with fire site, it's it's had a sense of Polish. The whole time I've been using it I think it's worth checking. Out over on sweetie say well, one of the things that we've been looking at and I don't want to say too much but we've been doing stuff for connecting with Patriots. So instead of having to, for example, if you know if you have if you have a podcast and you want to have something released just for your supporters you have to go to. On and posted on their infrastructure and have it hosted by them, and then you don't get stats or metrics are really good information about how your show is being downloaded or anything, but it's the only way to do it. So we have a solution for that. But back in June Patriot came out with a note on what they're calling an update on their API and I won't read the whole thing but i. I WanNa read a little bit of just for a second and. Reaction to this was so negative. But it really just struck a chord of me because I was reading it again this morning actually and it's just such A. It's such a strange situation for companies to be in because. We're at a situation now, where if you come out with an API if you're a company providing a useful service to people and you release an API People will right away star to use that API that's part of the reason why I haven't released the fireside API at because I. Know that as soon as I do there will be. Hundreds maybe even thousands of people who will start using it, and that's wonderful. But if we decide to change it or we want to do something different. Imagine if you were using an API to say integrate Kuchen, listen to what podcast episode you've done. You don't WanNa you know went to come out and then break and then it breaks or some. So here's say. Dear patron developer community over the past few months we've heard creators and developers expressed that we haven't been supporting our API as best as we can and the translation of this having supported at all if you have questions if you need information or advice. They don't answer their documentation is either out of date or wrong most of the time it's a horrible horrible experience trying to develop against us. Okay. We want to be transparent and honest about our plans going forward. The News right now is due to resource constraints. I don't know how many million or billion they've taken. So I don't know why they would ever source constrains. Pretty good hit off a couple. You. Someone. Over stopping it. Straight. Are Not enough. Developers to help them out a little bit I. Don't know what's going on. Maybe somebody wrote the names of all the developers on a piece of paper and put it in an email to themselves, and now they can't be hired I don't know. Here's the quote though we can. Take away the stamps. We can no longer actively maintained the developer API with Patriot engineering resources. All end points will function as normal. However, this means there won't be new versions, ongoing maintenance or updates. Any resources dedicated to the API will be for fixing critical issues affecting up time. Then they this is the big reassuring. This is the the hug. This doesn't mean the API won't work and developers happened unmaintained. API's quite frequently but we wanna make sure you make informed decisions based on our transparent plans for the future. The last thing we want is for folks expecting to get assistance from US and being disappointed. Oh my gosh, that's so nice. Worse than not working, it might work in my work I listen listen you've already paid those paid for these breaks and we want you to enjoy them. Yes. There will be times when they just don't work. Radio, you know voicing tragedy. So there aren't a lot of comment on here but there are the few comments that are here are very well written and and there are people who are basically saying. y'All aren't being transparent. Viz Is. Really grab yes. Is What it is. But what it made me think about. Is Two things on the one hand. You know. There is there is a responsibility as a company like this I feel. To support. Anything that you know it's one thing to sunset something in, take it away but it's kind of weird to say, well, we're not taking it away, but we're also not fixing it or updating it or making it work unless how it affects us in other words. A Bridge. We'd be Pretty Bung. Yes. We're GONNA listen to his I'm going to be honest with you. We do not have the resources to make this safe, but we're not gonNA. Take it down the bridges still here you can use it but you know be careful. Yeah, and it's I. Mean it's really it's so lame at least in the case of apple, they'll usually give you like a warning shot of like or whoever like most companies will say you google whoever will say like in this number of months like we're GonNa sons that the so F Y so listen to this an article here in tech crunch this was the most recent one I could find. About the raise and I'm pretty sure that they've done a more recent raise than this but even if they haven't. Back. In July they got a million dollars in series defunding it says. One hundred sixty five million in funding that Patriot has raised since it was founded in twenty thirteen I'll put that into the show notes I believe that they have. Even, received more since then I might be wrong about that. But if all they've received is a paltry hundred and sixty, five million. I'm sure they could hire listen. They could hire a developer. And pay that developer. I don't know what developers make across the country or across the world, but they could find an affordable. Developer in the world come on, you know better than this and pay them to just work on the API and it's just what they don't give. You don't give money to accompany that doesn't need the money the money that you're giving in that instance you're not giving that to them so that they can like get a nicer coke machine. You're giving them that because they're in debt and that you are basically it's just short of a bridge. Loan as I understand it when you're in series D I, guess that's pretty back in my day WHOA. If you were passed series be your dog food. But like if you're in your fourth round of like you know beyond the angel stuff or whatever like you're getting that money because you are in debt but someone believes in you I don't think that that's not generally a thing where you put a fresh coat of paint everything I mean. Changed my mind and isn't isn't that what it means it's not just go out and hire a Phalanx of people that might be signalling that they're struggling in a way that's not publicly obvious. I you. You're probably right and I hadn't really thought about that but you're probably right. I did find something just now September of this year they raise ninety million from investors valuation is one point two billion. And So. But the thing is for for being the being the gorilla at what they do why am I suddenly talking like it's two thousand? No. Blue Shirt. But they're. On their net net. If I'M GONNA open up the open, the Komo not you we're going to need to do a deep dive here. You know we're not gonNA boil the ocean. Right so so so So. Thesis here would be that. It's not cool that they're doing this. Well, it's not cool that they're doing it. But what's less cool is the way that they're doing it. And Hong. So interesting I made this exact point on Roderick online yesterday. Did you what did you say there I hadn't heard yet. That's so that's No but that's so interesting. We're just talking about like John Tugela trying to like maintain relationships and like doing things by text and people are different and I was saying that sometimes when one has a misunderstanding with somebody even if it's even especially someone that we love it can be difficult. So the way I look at it is like a Lotta. Times there's the thing that the person. Did or does let's put it this way. There's a thing that a person does and there's the way the person does that. And I feel like. The getting to. The initiating incident, the caused the cockup and your relationship we wants to focus on what the person did I think the more complex thing is. Getting, to the deeper and more painful thing of like I don't like we do that. It's not. It's not what you did how you do it. The frustrates me you what I mean like you could you could be helpful in a jerk ish way like there's all kinds of ways that a person can be I'm sorry to interrupt you but. The funny coincidence because I agree with you, it's not it's not like it's you put another way that I think most people can agree on cheese. It's not to say that apple's not allowed to run the company they want or twitter or whomever my God. If anything else please twitter like it's your actual company, you don't beholden to Nazis you can change your policies you need you can take down anything you want it's not what you do and what you don't do it how it's how you do don't do it. That's incredibly frustrating right? It's it's that the Practice but the like operationalisation of Europe. Es. That's frustrating. So. In that case, like you know it's your Api do what you want with it but you know as Judge Judy Says Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining like don't act like you're doing any big favor but writing this this this gooey email to the quote unquote community like that's really I mean that's that's pretty disingenuous. Yeah I mean and it's and you know the thing the thing about it is it's painting a very bleak picture as a developer what you read is. Don't build anything that relies on this because the obvious next step after saying, we're not going to update it, but it'll still work is now we actually it's not going to still work anymore. It's going to not work at some point or we made changes internally that broke the API. So you can't do X. Y. and Z. Anymore right now. But the frustrating part of this is and also the the whole mentality is. If. You're if you're making API for your service or system, what you're saying is, hey, developers build stuff that uses API and there is an inherent promise in that and an obligation to my employers a contract. That says. We're going to make possible for you to do this and continue doing and you've heard on over the many years of twitter, all the issues that came up with third party clients and how they were cutting that off and how they Dan. Once again, you read my mind that's exactly not specifically twitter. But yes, I absolutely agree and this is this is more like this is why this is some BS, which is that whatever company is out there when you have heard it said I. Don't have firsthand experiences but I've heard it said that there are numerous reasons why dropbox succeeded in the way that they did for my point point of view. One of those is like, wow, short of maybe lipson which not even close like it was never nobody was ever going to figure out how to make money just being dumb hard-drive in the sky back. Then right back in the day that was not a profitable business and there was not a lot of places that wanted to be. Wanted to be your low cost low cost. Fault intolerance sky drive. That's not a fun business to be in dropbox dwelt. My understanding is well first of all they. They crack something with being able to get into the finder which at the time we thought was great. Wow, that's amazing. How they get around Steve I'll show you what's a feature not a company like we're party that you know all your base are belong to us. Now wearing your Tilda like deal with, and that was huge. The fact that it's it mostly worked, and if it failed, it failed and obvious ways and said, here's the conflicted item or whatever. Like that's. That was all that was amazing. What else did they do? One bit of their genius was making a very easy to implement bake What do they call it? St K. I guess. But basically, here's here's a chunk of funk. You can drop into your APP and we will make it improbably easy to. Integration to whatever you do. Right. You know right? It's against supposedly. Get some stuff they became like God. Bless them. They'd be. They have a somewhat become like evernote were they. They also make mop handles lemon squeezer. Just like what are you? What are you doing, dropbox? What is all this? Why? Why is your leave? So deep in every part of my computer could you please please stop doing? So what do you do though so you WanNa get big well, did apple get big by like coming up with an entirely proprietary Set of ways to connect things. Now, they figured out how to deal with the PC world they figured out how you could. Get through things like Kensington. But Mountain to Mohammed you we're going to figure out how to be very. Word that escaping me but we're going to be real good about working with other people stuff integrating again, this is where we get to things like API's very permissive attitude about working with others and what does that do? That brings people to our platform. We make it easy to love us you get cool API's you get stuff you get things right and then at some point eventually you know flash forward years and now you're trying to get lock in your stuff down in the case of Google. You turn off all the cool stuff. Like the setting aside Google labs, Miss? Google. Sets out there remembers Google I. Don't remember when John was. You could go in and say John Paul George and it would know that the fourth one was ringo that's a trivial example but all kinds of things were it knew what kind of array you wanted here and it could figure stuff out. But before we even get into lake. Local news but Google reader like such a beloved APP and they walmart at the entire RSS APP market they. Could say sherlock but I think more like Walmart what have with? Walmart Walmart moves into your town everybody shuts down eventually because they can't could be, and then once Walmart does its occasional calling it realizes it's not profitable to be you know and and but much Montana and now you don't have stores anymore and so that's the kind of stuff we're talking about here kind of predatory like we get you in but being Mister Nice guy and then we. Not so fast you're either locked in or you're totally locked out, and that's that's some lane cheese man like, why? Why are you doing that your people? Well, that's how the business works but like it happens often enough and severely enough that I think it's the kind of thing now where you got to be a little bit for me once about this. Yeah. But. I, mean I, I'm not. And I don't sound like one of those entitled Jerks. That's like you me free things forever. It's not like that. But like I say this what you're doing, but it's also the way you're doing it. That's kind of gross. And pitchy on I. Don't see. I don't Wanna I don't want just you know. Put on blast but I mean they're. rent-seeking is too strong a term but like the. They're just like they're just percentage hogs they just take a percentage of a thing I fight with I spent. Aim morning fighting the Patriot APP. The other day. You ever get the thing you gotta log back in because. So okay, you gotta log back at I go to like because not so fast we need to go you need to go to your email account and like click on this link. Okay fine. I deal with this a couple times a month I am struggling. This is one of my. This was last Thursday and I'm GonNa get to what's happening with my Thursdays right now because they are not my Thursday anymore I don't recognize my Thursdays anymore. We'll have that in third act today. So what do I do? I clicked the thing ago good email. Well, first of all, it's email account I share with a co host than against the password chain I gotta go through to FAA got a fine security. Finally getting there Dan the link there I clicked the link. This link is expired try again house. Okay. Cool. Okay. Cool. Google I have so many things to do today, and this is the blocking task. This is the gating task for the rest of my day I can't go to the next thing until I get this thing up on patriots staged on Patriot so the other parts of this process could move along with me so far. So. I go to log in its says No. So fast. You gotta go click the link I go through this five times every time the link arise it's already expired. And so now you know this feeling. In Limbo, you can't move for. Well, it's a, it's a it's a state of mind that I'll call waiting for something to break or waiting for the things not work I. Don't know how long it's like when you're trying to to be, you're trying to solve like a extension compatibility problem classic or one of those things where you're like all. I'M GONNA. Do now or like when he gives a weird kernel panic like now my days I just sit here and wait for this to break and then I go and see if I can figure out what happened. So. Long Story Short I finally do get contacted support and said Hey I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here. I don't WanNa get locked out but you know is there you know where you came with this and you know they're good advice was wait a while before you do it again. And I eventually did get in and then once I did get in I kept going through this thing I get over and over which is save the draft but then it says, oh no, the drought is actually screwed, but then the draft is actually fine and You know it's it's fine. It's fine but there's like so many of an I I'm I'm sorry it's only being critical of patriotic but. I have I. Don't know anything about how the company works except he used to be in the band with the lady who looked off camera. That's all I know about them. The there in pompous together I'm given to believe that's what I know. Right right. And it's just it's not credulous to me that. THEM TO BE POOR mouthing over much. Because I've seen the numbers seen numbers on one thing I do and I'm like, Damn. You guys aren't doing too bad for you know how terribly you're doing? Yeah. Right and that's the other thing it's it's frustrating. It's frustrating trusting. It seems like they would be doing very, very, very well and. I'm not going to say that it's easy to do the stuff I do fireside with the very small crew that I have. It's very, it's a challenge all the time, but what were able to get done? With a very small number of people, really it's mainly me and I have a developer who helps me any is on contract. And how did you helping with support and greed of director stuff like it system really small team I've Got Ryan helping with the server stuff. You know but. Like were doing all of that. And you think a patriotic is making so much money in his raised so much money. Part of it must mustn't scale. Be Part of their challenge I guess I just this, all the time is law of large numbers stuff where you're gonNA get problems at their level that don't pop up a shrew with much respect your level. Very true. But also there's so we've been close on this There's so few things that I have any kind of expertise and but I at least easily, there are things where at least have exposure to something and so like I'm usually like the person sitting there talking to Jerry. Linda. Guard who doesn't know enough about the business to know how silly what someone is saying is there are handful things where I do so like a few go out to eat pecking the before times if you go out to eat in roughly the same. Like jerk what's the word I'm looking for like the same era like Cretaceous or like Neolithic or whatever. If you within twenty five years of having worked in a restaurant, you got to eat in a restaurant and somebody says a certain kind of thing to you. You know whether that's Bs you know whether that's plausible or let's be honest you often no man that sucks I totally know what you're going through. If you show up and again, let's get back to scale. You show up with no reservation at five PM on Mother's Day out of place. And Get Hoffy? Because you can't immediately be seated will I can promise. You never worked in a restaurant because at least when I worked in restaurants that was the busiest day of the year and my Gosh, you've got to cut those folks a break. That's a tough day they're dealing with the scale stuff they're dealing with stuff maybe three, four, five however turnovers. Of that much capacity you're also dealing with a lot of amateurs you're getting like the equivalent of people only drink on New Year's Eve people maybe go out to eat with a big group a few times a year. Oh, did I mention a big group tips are gonNA suck getting that food to go out it's going to be hard. You're very sympathetic to that. But when you go to somebody and say, Hey, you know just, fyi i the half and half in the creamer here is a little nasty. Could you please bring a freshman? And if your servers responses will you're pouring it wrong. For example you would say, well, you know I'm not an also there is a thumbprint on the inside of my glass. Could I get a fresh everything and the bill? You know what I mean like when you have even just a little bit of exposure let alone expertise with something. You can do a sniff test on whether what somebody's saying is reasonable And you know I can't pretend to understand anybody else's job or life but I am. let's say allergic. I'm not. positionally, I'm not I'm not disposed toward people sending happy talk emails with that long of a greeting. Something like dear friends and family of the Patriot community like I'm already like I'm already a little bit like Oh boy here comes the scrooge You know I don't now it's hard. It's a hard time to do everything right now. Dan It's It's crazy but if they can't succeed at what they're doing in the way that they're doing it God, bless anybody else trying. That just doesn't make sense to ramming. They've been doing it longer than anyone else and. Will. There the the joke will make on here three times a year when MC Hammer said, he wanted to make the youtube of dance videos. People pointed out there already was a youtube of dance video and that it was called Youtube. there. The Patriot patriotic right brand name name, the second place contestant I tear it. There is out there. I mean, there are other things and there are certainly people who want integrate that to their offering but like patriots Patriot on, you know this is this like. Kids succeed with it at a time when everybody's trying to get their hustle on. And then God what else happened. Oh. Yes. So that was I think it was must have been August for rather October first. But of course when I went in to do help request I got an auto response that said. Today's the first of the month and we're doing payouts. So customer support is going to be really busy call man. I. DuNNo. It's hard. Things are hard. Yeah. Yeah. IF. We're GONNA do the drafts thing will do it real quick because. Poisoned ever need. Real quick and I tell you about my journey Thursday. Journeys Yeah. I discovered this through a tweet from friend of the show. Greg. From Agile Tortoise is he and his His a team of Mary man in. Sherwood, forest put out the the UPDRAFTS that I love. And drafts we've talked about drafts a lot. What you need to know today is the draft is where texts starts. The MTA place where you can type on your phone or your MAC or whatever. But that's just the beginning because in-draughts does stuff with it. And that's the technical term a lot of what drafts. Is Accomplished through actions and so when Greg brought drafts to the Mac And Watch. it's wild how much stuff can work on all three now back this decays federal brain swim Dan that there's stuff that works on three different essentially three different platforms bizarre and wonderful and scary. Scary and let you in the action or actions set like this will work on these platforms. Obviously, not everything can work on watch for like a variety of reasons but. So also has this thing called the draft action directory, which is a place where you can go and usually you know you maybe trying to find a little one off it's almost like. The what you would find a gist or you would find a plugin for something but you can go and it'll show you something like, Hey, here's a really cool action where you can type in drafts and ill parse that and send it to sorry. It will send to fantastic our FANTASTICO There's a lot of these little kind of one off or like what call them one one one liners almost. So, this is really cool but there are also people that build out these crazy like systems not crazy but cool Resume Orchard has one for test paper. That's really good. Doctor Drang has one for tests paper that's really good and these are action sets sets of actions, and so you can just basically create a whole bunch of functionality that. You can then hooked up with keyboard commands and stuff like that but really great community. Greg tweeted this out the other day I just saw this I'm only just getting started with this. So this is again gonna be one of those. I'm just GonNa Point, you at this if you're interested because I don't know enough to say but. So. and this lobbying show notes I thought asylum is but something called fought asylum I put out the thought asylum suite for drafts. This came out September twenty seventh. You Go. Download this and along the lines of some stuff in shortcuts. I don't know what the phrase he used for this. There's some hooks struts or whatever you WANNA call it. There's some stuff you installed to be able to use any of it, and then once that's installed the next layer up all this crazy functionality. So I'm not putting this, well you go and you get this thought asylum thing for drafts and then. They've got still much cool stuff that you can do from inside. So first base, it thought asylum set the core they have a, they have a set for writing they have a set for managing drafts have one for export import share They have one for CS called trove. That's actually to help you work with control drafts that won't call power user the one that I've been focusing on to a little bit on tasks enlist, but mostly on the set for writing. And this is so you use drafts and you should go and check this out. You can find it in show notes. There's it's I'm going to say it's almost a little bit like the way I use Brett Terpstra services and markdown tools. It's this whole layer of stuff that you have access to that. You can do so many things with. So for example, like things like. Okay so for example. I love the fact that in a lot of places on a Mac if you hit command K it knows that means inserted link. So like if you're in text it and you've got a url in your clipboard, you select some text Hickman k. you get a pop up we can drop in the URL. I really liked that in in envy I believe it is I have to look control command the I wanNA. Say which is like special paste is like it will if you have selected some text the hit command. Control V, it will paste it and basically create a markdown link. Now, this they made, that is one of the features. Now, inside this drafts thought asylum thing, they've done all the heavy lifting of writing what needs to be wrote for me to be able to select something I'll have to do is add the key command and guess what it was command K. and I use that constantly that's all in there right now things. Are Moving, text around all these different things I'm not making a great case here to pitch all. If you like drafts check this out it's free it looks very powerful. It's on my list. I. Have some things I need to do with the script. This week can ask the things I WANNA do with drafts this week, but I'm going to be learning a lot. You at least you had to look at this anywhere, right? Yeah absolutely. It's pretty cool it looks very cool and you know guys like I, saw this on my thoughts on I don't know what that is but. Thought Asylum thought asylum. Asylum four thoughts. Do you need asylum for thoughts. Asylum is seems bad to me like asylum isn't a good thing. It's I feel almost one of those words like sanitarium. Yeah. That means different things at different times. Sometimes, it's about having being committed sometimes it's about getting healthy. Sometimes it's about a really good metallica album. So I looked up asylum rate and the I F emission is the protection granted by a nation to someone who's left their native country as a political refugee. and. Then the number two has a little note on it that says dated. It says an institution shelter and supported to people who are mentally ill. So it also these sister label to electric memory serves not electric from daredevil. Oh, but electric from Elektra asylum. Not to, be confused with. EPIC. An epic not to be confused with epic versus Apple to To always, there's another. Okay all right I got to calm down. Slate. do, I want to get into this. Don't want to get into this. You got a few minutes. Is Boring now. We've already done a lot. Talked about any Griffeth WANNA save it. For next week. I can't decide I I feel like it would be overwhelming because it's GonNa. Take me ten minutes fifteen minutes to do this. You know what you know what I can make it work it. Okay. Okay okay. Okay okay. What, what is it? I like to say I like to say I'm not busy I'm time constraint an in the before times that was generally true. Now, why do I say that why do ask some questions like Robert Evans, you bet your Aslam, why am I doing? Well, time constrained just means I have to be places and do things at a certain time busy means I've got more of that than I can do without being stressed out. It is my desire in life to be. Time constrain without being over busy everybody gets busy. Sometimes I don't WanNa be busy all the time and when I notice I'm getting busy I know it's because of my own poor management is because I have taken on too much if I'm feeling stressed out or I'm feeling. I mean. So so here's the problem statement here is that the the the joker the bit? The truth is that for a couple years Thursday was the day of the week. When I did a lot of the administrative tasks. In my life at my house work at things at the. All the stuff that needs getting time you know what I mean like. That's the days. All those little things. Nobody knows that I have a name for like mosquito tasks empower puttering. That's Thursday thing a Thursday thing is me checking to see if we need milk toilet paper? A Thursday thing is me like the thing that I've been putting off about you lubricating a Knob. Let me start again. Forty on hinge or whatever it is. All that stuff is Thursday thing. This got a little bit of a nick in it when my lady started working telecommuting on Thursdays still do most of the stuff. Dan Flash Ford. I don't know what the F. has happened since Kovic my Thursdays have gotten so stupid. and. How did it get stupid? Well, it gets stupid because stuff accumulates like that. How life works. Is like you don't notice that something is one may not notice something's accumulating until it's become a little bit overwhelming. So Thursday used to be like a total clear runway day for me and I treasured it. That's what I might do something creative whatever. But it's if you want to go to lunch or take a nap but it was very much the day that was wide open for me not enough for me to go screw off quite the opposite. It's for me to do all the existential mopping up that can't happen on the days when I'm over scheduled. Does that make sense are yeah absolutely. And so like for the last, like four Thursdays made life miserable for everybody around me to some extent because. I mean I. Started to talk about my life. But like so it's not a huge deal but like you know. Hang on hang. On. Hang on. One second. Everything. All right. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. Some people text me. Okay. So Thursday comes along and so generally speaking I've got four podcasts I do plus other things like I've got. Four five I guess. So go three weekly shows and in two other shows that. As of now alternate. Every other week but that was part of the problem part of the problem was accumulation meant that. So like we do our do my show with Roderick Monday right I do the show with you on Tuesday. I Have Dubai Friday we record by Friday on Wednesday. Producer Quinn edits it overnight and it's ready for us to deal with the next morning. Right Jim Edits reconcilable differences and I usually get that on Wednesday. or sometimes usually Wednesday or Thursday. Plus. I record with Syracuse every other Tuesday plus Thursdays usually are women record. You Look Nice today and then what was the other one recently Oh I had a project that didn't work out where I would have to edit distinct. So basically, last Thursday I, finally had had enough not because I'm an idiot I don't know how I let this happen stuff accumulates things pile up and then you need to do something you should be doing all along. But I usually don't end up doing until I have to a term from Project Management I. Think I'm using this resource leveling like way to not have. Bottlenecks. And is because I don't want to be stressed I don't want to be stressed but you know like a bus to guide I care a lot about what I do. So like, why is it a problem for Merlin to get these podcasts files has put somewhere well, I do the notes for all shows. It takes me two or three hours to do the show notes for reconcile differences because I have to listen to the whole show. Sometimes, I should cut it I open e Cam and just jump around, but I don't. Like that I wanted to be really good and I want it to be craft and I wanted to three editing passes. Do I care about it for you? Kind of do I care about it for me more than you will ever know it's critically important to me that I do the best job of this both deep that I can possibly do So what? Does that Wednesday and Thursday situation mean well, we record two episodes of Dubai. Friday redo the main episode, the public episode, the Private Pay China episode I do notes for that because I choose to. Right. So that's going to be due to go up on Thursday. Reconcile the differences with the aforementioned main show and the member show that needs to go up with those show nuts recording. You'll nice today. California king is currently the current incarnation. That's GonNa take a fair amount of work do the art for that I do the notes for that because I want to because I care. So I'm not complaining by any stretch What I m saying is that it matters so much to me like I know that sounds asinine because it's just the podcast, but I really wanted to be as good as it can be I have very limited skills I do have to try if I were better at what I do if I were more naturally talented at this I would need to try but I do and I want for the five people who read the show notes I want them. To hear a voice I want to make sense. And Long Story Short I cannot do all those things on Thursday. Well. and. So that's what I've done in the last few days I've been trying to and my telling you this this very long story because I wonder if any of you ever struggle with this too I wanted to talk about how I have been approaching this the different angles with an eye toward maybe exposing you to some interesting ideas and technology and thought technology and ways to. Make things a little more same. So that's the main part but I can tell you what I did tell me. So. What was really obvious? It's just it's gotta be. You know like you know you got to move the big rocks right? If you don't get the big rocks out of the way, the little rocks aren't GonNa matter and there was a big rock which is that. Every other Thursday. I have much less to do, and then on that alternate every other Thursday I wait too much to do. If I've got it record music, nice today and get reconcilable differences and resolve difference after show out. That's too much. Setting aside, the two other things to do say you know what I mean. So. This one simple and easy, which is I went to this show and you look nice saying I said, Hey, you know we're doing every other Thursday. Is there a way we could like? kind of like. Change. The Thursday we do that on because I would have a Thursday where I do this and then the next Thursday where I do the other thing right. So now that was a straightforward. They were very cool about it makes sense so far. So already I've taken like a quarter, a quarter of my Thursday work has been reduced and moved to a different Thursday. That's that's my level. Thinking is like was the obvious thing? Well, you know. If you've got an Arrow your head, get the Arrow out I guess before you worry too much about restricting your boat. So that's that's an easy one, right? But some of the other stuff was a lot harder because this is project management there's earliest start latest start there's earliest and latest and I don't need to go into deep levels of gant but even through this, right, you know we can't start this next thing until we finish this previous thing. But that previous thing is also dependent upon a supplier that's not getting paid by the other person, and then pretty soon, you know it's lady who swallowed a fly. And I had this idea that I can't believe worked out. There were so into an APP that I haven't used since Christ was a corporal corporate it's called Air. Table an air tables up pretty cool. Consume ary used it. Here table. The URL for and I, feel like I have used this and I saw this shown around for a while people were loving and. It's one of those like God has been apps. SORTA like this like the Curio there's been these APPs for a while even maybe a little bit like delicious library but these APPs that are. It's more than a spreadsheet. It's more than a database. It's they're trying to make a very easy easy to use flexible essentially like database. It's almost it's kind of like pretty file maker in some ways. But I think that air table even more than other things really excels at project he. Business things. You know in a way that for example, Google sheets were excel really is better maybe it financed off or you know that sort of rows and columns approach. This really is more like you're GonNa make you know you get a get a get a page that becomes like a form that form can have associations also short I went in and I guess screen-grabbed this. If it helps but I went in and I created several things inside of this little database started off with their basic project management database, delete all this stuff, and here's what I did. First of all, I put in all of the shows that I do because that's ninety percent of what I do setting aside guests stuff other writing stuff interviews, things like that, right? Put in the names of the five shows that I do or whatever it is. Then I put in different types of work which are similar to GT context but not really, there's Pike s recording. There's the need extra things like at spots, there's need to write things. There is the need to do kind of computer administrative stuff like uploading files or or what have you, and then I entered in a bunch of tasks. With a roughed in start and end dates. and. It was fascinating. It was fascinating to me in a way that I hadn't quite anticipated. On what it was fun. I like doing things like this. I enjoy playing with an APP. So I had all my task in there. That's a nice little taxonomy and categories, and this APP has different views. It's really cool. There's a basic task agreed view, right? So like a task view that's very similar to away you might look at something in. Sheets then they have a calendar view where if you have dates on things, you see on a calendar same way you would in any other calendar. APP. You, can get in you can get into project management stuff like task pipelines. and a constant return to in a second They also have a can ban view, which is really interesting. We what what a can ban yeah. Back to just a second, I just want to get to the first part of this was that like as with you know gt as anything, the process of capturing can be very interesting because the delta between what you realize. The delta between what you think is on your mind and what you discover was on your mind can be very instructive. So I went into this knowing you more on my mind that I'd like but when I actually put it all down. At this sort of. I don't know what are you going to call it? Five thousand foot view I don't want to get all the way down into log into. Lipson. I. Don't WanNa get into that. There's a task called upload reconcile differences to Lipson or you know whatever And it doesn't need to go nuts with this. The time estimate of that would be what governs the granularity when I say this takes fifteen minutes. This takes an hour roughly. I don't need to go in. It doesn't. It's not useful to me to break this down to too far. But with that said I'd written done everything that I could think of. So I know like, for example, dumps dumb stuff right in clone. Last week's Dubai Friday document to make a new one right updated information he. The reconcilable differences document now, do I want to be doing that on Wednesday and Thursday respectively? Well, it seems to me that. That doesn't need to be happening I went there Thursday, it can be happening the previous. Sunday why don't I do it then? Boy. Duh. Right. Mind exploited here's an idea for resource leveling. Don't do it all on the same day if you don't have to. But I had to see visually in front of me to go wait that's an opportunity that could be done earlier. What about what about even something? That's not a stressful thing like doing the ads for Roderick. To should do that. After we record on Monday you could do before we record on Monday maybe wants to on Sunday to Sunday. You got to go block coin in to all those things. That was really instructive. So. More stuff than I expected be more stuff than I expected that could be moved to different places. But then see, of course, this is work. It's interesting is each time I would stop doing this task of putting it all into place to go do something else. Guess what? It would almost immediately occur to me that there's another thing that I should put in here I was leaving out. That you when you go and you do you do a postmortem on a project that didn't work out. How often is it? There was something you didn't account for because you didn't think long enough. We didn't dig long enough to unearth all the risks were all the task or whatever it is. I don't know I don't really go on about it, but it's been it's been really instructive and to see it visually. I think. Then in that can ban view which we can talk about how I don't know it's been really interesting I I. Don't know if it's this is going to be a perfect formula for me but I'm just encouraging folks to try this. You might. WanNa. Go in if you're having this kind of situation or you just want to experiment It's interesting. Dan Have you ever worked somewhere where you had to rate your job description like after you had the job Oh yeah. Yeah. Definitely. I always found that. It's very challenging and difficult very challenging because you do the job, you know the job but negative use mouth words on paper to like describe what that is in a way. That somebody who doesn't have your job can understand I. Think I worked at it. I was company that was getting sold to another company before. Asleep. Stack. No? No. No. This is before that. This is like the first company I worked for out of school and I think part of that hard to do in part of that process they were sort of saying like. We hired you to do these different things but everybody write down what you do and describe it as if it were a job because like the new company that's buying wants to know what you do and you can't just put down guy who does this stuff you have to make a job make a description because they don't understand doing stuff if you ended up doing. Going to put this. So the end up doing stuff you weren't hired to do, it could be quite another thing to let people know that that's a big part of your job. Now than you were higher for and depending a lot on your boss, your team culture, it can be very difficult. or it can be very rewarding to have that conversation. You know what I mean because you're essentially going to somebody and saying, Hey, you know the thing you think I do I do kind of do that but now I really much more do this thing it's probably equally valuable but like so what you do I'm I going to fudge this and like basically lie to make this job description for what you think. Or do we have the kind of organization record be straight with you about it, and you can understand that maybe actually I should probably get a raise because I'm doing more in different things than I was hired for very challenging. But no matter what it is that we do I think go back to the days when we had a very complicated setup I gotTa Tayo. Had A Tibo. We had our giant asked CRTV and of course we had like an old school stereo and I, and this is actually at a time when I did have to read a little bit of documentation or shows never great at but I ended up writing three pages of Microsoft word three pages of documentation about how to watch TV at our house because we knew how to do it it was part of the lived culture of our household but for for a friend coming to house sit oh God how would you know the order of operations? No, you don't turn on. No you'll turn on the TV button on the Stereo you have to hit the ox button. On there and like you to do it in this order and you know it was like trying to describe the my stepfather like how to watch CNN and why that meant turning this channel two three in this one too. Oh Yeah I remember I remember when my aunt came to to stay with us many many years ago and you know she was like I'm going to step much TV. All right. Good night and she left the TV on all night she just turned off the cable box because. He believes the Vignette right and you know like for hers you I don't know what her setup was, but there was probably one button and we had to you know and at first carmine button. Got It. It's it will. But it was like, of course, of course, you turn off both but for her it's not of course, it was very different. Yeah, I mean there's all kinds of stuff we'd like in the house you know all these things like the you know it could be stuff like how to start the lawnmower or how to lock the door. You ever go somewhere though has a door lock that's different than yours like how many times has I'm having this happened to you you go somewhere and like you're used to having an auto lock door but they have a non auto luck door or while they're really bad ones vice versa, we're you're used to the non locked door, but then you get the hotels room style door that locks on a medically now you're outside without a key. Why am I saying all this you should try this. We'll talk about campaign and half a sack I'm Dan will send you this screen grab. i. just think this could be a fun thing for folks to try. Now let's talk about Campbell, tell me what you know about Camden. I know that it was something that was started in Microsoft I know that it. That they they used it there and then it kind of evolved out of that and I remember where I first heard about it was how they were using it in the xbox development team but that's about it. Famously, started to Toyota a really where I Sir Mike Okay cool, it could be it could be but I think in most a lot of the process nerds it became known as something that Toyota Technique and. Put some links in about it, but it's just this I mean I'm not GonNa go into too much detail about it because I don't understand it a ton, but it's it has to do with basically starting with the natural cycle of like an empty box represents something that needs to be filled and like how do we know how this process works? How do we know where we stand with these different parts of not just a project of a process and I think this is part of the way I believe the Toyota really changed the way the automobiles were made in the seventies especially but with with so I think the end you've run into this probably through stuff like was Jira. Seen Companies Yeah Jerry common thing when you're doing development as a team to be able to like look at the process of where everything stands for. Sure. So, in this case, you can put like the the stacks that they give you. The typical Camden view is like these plan tasks up next on track complete behind an at risk and I think it becomes a way to like visually rock where you are with something especially on a team maybe now especially with the remote team but tway that I've been using, it not the real normal correct way at threatening that you. You'd sent me what looks like a collection of stacks that you're describing? Yes. So in this case, I've just done it by project. But because it's sorted by order that gives me the vertical that we're looking at here under the. Project is the order of how those things will go each week. That's not able to me because that's the stack. That's my campaign, and like I'm with this I, go to that I can't do four until I've done to etcetera etcetera but for team stuff. You know there's all kinds of different views. Look I, say there's some stuff in notes you can check out. I guess the take home for me on this was this was this has been a very valuable exercise I mean asked me again or US myself next week how much it's helped but I think this is it's a useful way. So if you know if you know what you do for a living interstate in what you do, you know providing says anybody who can explain what they do for a living to a ten year old is a charlatan. So the ability to know what you do is kind of in your bones most the time assuming you're even vaguely competent you don't need. A manual to do your job each week my job is such as it is is very straightforward, but straightforward as it is can hide a lot of. Non Obvious complexity and I think sometimes shaking it up a little bit forcing yourself. I could've just as easily probably done this with no cards could probably just done one sheet paper but it was it was fun to do I'm going to keep doing it and I would recommend however y'all WanNa do it try this try writing down the stuff that she needed do when it needs to be done if it's a repeatable thing and not oliver jobs have repeatable things but that's more reason than ever to do this. Why is that? Long Story Short yesterday Wolf I had some big delays. I ended up spending literally all day on Roderick Online. We had some troubles with our call. It start override clean up the files Edwin Isotope as you all this stuff I was struggling a little bit with e script and still not totally thrilled with how it turned out. But I, did not I, started I sat down to record Roderick at eleven and I didn't get it posted until. Of course here now or early because that's how I roll I, didn't get it like. I think after three yesterday whereas I usually have it up before new. So, why does that matter? Well, because sometimes you're going to have work that comes up that takes on proportions and timeliness that you had not anticipated. So you're GonNa want to know what big rocks can't move. You're going to want to know what little rock's can. If something comes along, that's very important to get done. Well, you're going to have to find a way to move some things around and you can't do that. Well in confidently unless you understand you have up-to-date insight into this sort of work you're doing how you do it, what the constraints are and what you need to do to keep from losing your mind. Are you GonNa? Do you think you'll share that thing that you sent me with the the Public Oh. Yeah. Sure I. Mean Like Yeah. I guess there's other weird in there is there now. Oh, you think they'll be useful. Yes. Okay because it's a really good example of how to use this in a non developed burke context. Yeah it used to be funny when I used to be Merlin man the kind of that I had was was. In an unusual situation in any variety of ways at least I was working for myself and doing nominally creative stuff. But boy, I'll tell you man that can actually be really harrowing to not know which. What thing it is, you're going to pick up in what way and still have a job that depends on doing that. Well so yeah, I mean like. It can be difficult to do that without getting really bogged down in your mb S. I. Think about how a team like Max stories must work. I've been really interesting or like I, guess like I'm more like but any of the sort of indie ish you know groups of like one, two, three, four, five, six, however many people mark on something it'd be fun to be a fly on the wall for how different people think about the work of their team He does not go without saying I would never just assume that it's all going to go. Well, you don't have to beat it to death or think it to death, but I think the occasional opportunity to revisit. How and why and when you do the stuff, you do can actually lead to improvements to your work in your life you know and you work as part of your life for lucky. Otherwise you're dead. I can't change that. No. Put an envelope mail to yourself. I mean, that's You. Know Aaron T. K. Okay. Tumor Lemon. Back. Ohio.

"Monday. It's a phase two that means you can eat outside. You can go into stores department stores. Everything is open today in New York. It's a big step tomorrow along actually westchester goes to face three indoor dining. Lots of stuff open in Westchester tomorrow, then Long Island on Wednesday, so it's It's a big week for getting back to to normal Joe Bartlett down there in North Carolina. South Carolina. What that's better. That's the same thing, isn't it? Farther south. Actually South Carolina's much more kind of Hilton head kind of stuff whereas. Carolina more the Andy Griffith show right. I you could say that you say that. All right. You've been open for weeks down there. No, no spikes know anything right corona. No, that's not true there. There are spice I mean. They're lot of new cases of two thousand new cases just the other day, so yeah, there is a spike. Oh. Well. I've always been cautious. I'll go to the outdoor restaurants. Don't go inside. Always wear my mask when I go into stores, so a lot of people aren't. Yeah so listen. There's some increase somewhere. A lot more testing is one of the reasons for the numbers going up, you could sit there and try to crunch all these numbers and try to figure out exactly what the problem is. You could spend hours doing this A better thing is wait for these Wall Street analysts in those. Guys because they you know if you ever watch the show billions, they just crunch. Every little detail and the market is pretty much flat right now, so they're not alarmed by whatever they dug up in all those numbers about whether it's a dangerous spike or just you know from everybody going back out one piece of good news I think. We mentioned this a couple of weeks ago, the viruses weakening. Now the only problem is sometimes it will weaken just so it can hide and then come back even worse, but sometimes it just mutates weaker and goes away. We've seen that happen with a number viruses like SARS and other viruses, but scientists researchers now saying it has weakened a little people that are getting getting getting a weaker version known. That's temporary, but it's been a couple of weeks, so that's a good sign. obviously the heat the Sun that stops the spread of it. One thing we've learned is it just doesn't spread much outside. Spread takes place inside so if we ever had a second wave or return of this virus, we really know a lot more now about handling it also, there's a lot of drugs now. ridgely hydroxy chloroquine. Everybody's using, but they say there's not six or seven things have been using They got the death rate down to zero point two six percent. A quarter of one percent, that's pretty good We'll get to the trump rally. Biggest disaster ever well. We'll go over that. John. Bolton speaking of big disaster. Did you try to watch that last night? No no interest in what he had to say, we Laurie knew what he was going to say. Impossible to watch impossible. You could last maybe thirty seconds. You could watch ten minutes of that. You could be declared legally dead I it was impossible to sit through that What's the story with the US Attorney? We'll get told of that. We'll get to You won't believe what they're renaming tearing down. We'll get to all of that coming up in Israel. They got a vaccine that is working. On hamsters I don't know what that means some well I. Don't know if there's always translate from a hamster to a person, but so far they say one hundred percent success with the hamsters with this corona virus vaccine gotta try with humans now the other thing is if they come up with a vaccine that works. Would you take? You got to be awfully? Brave to take it. Usually. It's a year or two of experimenting to see if their side effects. If you take this vaccine, you don't know, there could be side effects. Way Down the road. Who knows? Would you take it? Would you be will get it, nope. Yeah. That's the thing you gotta be very brave. That's that's why these vaccines usually take a long time. You can invent them pretty fast, but it's the testing waiting to see if their side effects that could take awhile, so the rally in Tulsa. Did you watch any of that? Yeah. You know. I don't think the crowd was the problem I think the president of the problem. He was too boring. Barring allocate. What's one of the best ones, but you gotta remember guy took three months off no rallies actually more than that many many months of no rallies. Go see when the new Broadway she'll go. Sit in the first night of trials a trial run first night. It's Kinda lacklustre. It takes a few performances to get it going again so Okay. It wasn't his best. It was pretty good. There were some good moments in their Here even this great event. What if you could have seen? Of You could have heard the reports the reports. Oh, it's. It's. This by the way it's a disease without question has more names than any disease in history. I can name. Comes Lou. I can name. Nineteen different versions of name. Okay. That were Chris Rock Special Dave chapelle special, saying exactly the same thing he'd get rave reviews. HOW CLEVER! How funny, but as it's the president now you're I'm watching the evening news. The Sunday shows. They opened with this dramatic headline. The president use a racist phrase to describe the vice. What race the talking about what he made? The Joke Kung flu. You laugh when you heard it, it's funny. It's okay. It's obvious that the greatest joke in the world, but it's not a racist phrase, so if you're watching the coverage of. I thought it was pretty good. When I was watching, you could see the bleachers. The top deck was empty and part of the floor, and the bottom was empty. You can see some of it was deliberately empty. They left a a good I'd say forty feet between the crowd, and the president's are so He wasn't too close to anybody who was cheering. But if you watch the news coverage was all about. How is the single biggest disaster? Nobody showed up. It was a total disaster. You see the Biden event earlier this week. You've probably seen the pictures where. Ten folding chairs. Only three people came. It was just it was the most pathetic thing. I've ever seen so by their measurement. If Sixty two hundred is a disaster, what does it when only three show? So. If that were a biden rally and he had those sixty two hundred people it would be the single biggest event of isn't higher lifetime Donald Trump had more people. More people on Saturday night and Biden is headed every single appearance in every presidential campaign. He's ever run his wife combined. Plus Zero So. I mean it was the beyond anything by the Democrats couldn't get that. Many people to show up for his convention speech, so I now I talk to people were there and they are really looked carefully through the crowd. Here's what they concluded. You heard about Tick Tock, and all that you know online, the the trolls, the tickets and screwed around ordering all million tickets that weren't going to be used, and all that and apparently. Biden tried that to his digital team. Went into the Al Aol chat rooms and my space and try to buy tickets, but it was on. But People looking around said they could see. Two things happened one. and they've been a lot of these staffers have been to trump rallies new. The crowd is all ages at a trump rally, so he noticed in this one very few older people. And that's usually the big part of the trump crowd, very few older people and they think what happened. Here is the older people who are really worried about. The Corona virus just weren't ready to go. Sit in a crowded auditorium, and I've noticed that with the restaurants. It reopened restaurants that are reopening Long Island Connecticut. They're packed, but the older people they're still being careful, still being cautious and that that's a big part of that and then. You know. Some people are trying to deny that. There was protesting and rioting and. Taunting the crowd outside, but The pictures you can see the video. Tremendous amount of protesters, screaming and yelling at at the crowd is acumen, so some people were afraid of that now, if you, if you look through the pictures, they had are a lot of national guard, forming a strong perimeters lines, holding these protesters back, so look pretty safe going in and out, but I could see where a lot of people first time. They're not sure if it's going to be totally safe. Part of that you can blame mayor de Blasio governor, Cuomo and people like that because they saw a lot of these people and tell us. A lot of these cities don't control the rioting. They don't control the protesters violence. There's looting. There's fire. There's so you didn't know what was going to happen Tulsa. So that was the first time people probably afraid of the protesters, and all that but very successful event if you can get sixty two hundred people to show up in the middle of a pandemic. That's a pretty good crowd again Biden private event you can see it's up on my twitter. You can look at the picture. It's a it looks like a gymnasium. Ten folding chairs could only get three people to show up. That's by waste his time for three people. He doesn't know he's there. Isn't a three people can't see. He's got a mass. Glasses are all fogged up. He didn't know where he is so. Fascinating. That if you watched the news yesterday from the Sunday morning shows to the evening news endless reports on how small the crowd was at the trump rally other were empty seats. They couldn't. They went on and on and on about this. There has been no coverage. No mention at all. That Biden tried to invite ten people to his event and only three showed up. Nobody even mentioned it mean. Isn't it amazing double standard. But, they're certainly yes I mean there was always biased, but it's beyond anything so the other day. The president held the glass with two hands. There have been reports everywhere these Parkinson's disease. It's Parkinson's. It's clearly pardons. The guy doesn't have Parkinson's Joe. Bartlett is a golfer. He will testify to this You can watch the president play golf. Even the other day you can sink those long putts. If you can hit the middle of the fairway. You don't have any Parkinson's. Would you agree no? He's pretty well coordinated for big guy. But again swing. But also he can. If you can put straight, you don't have any party as well. That's true. Yeah, impossible that Parkinson's in that case so and the Bolton Interview Oh my. It was riveting. Riveting under Donald Trump no. Regular rules here apply, but I am confident that there's no national security information you remember watching him and all those talk shows before he went to the White, house. Carefully, beyond one of these, Fox shows or some Sunday. Show you remember seeing them But, not, really you just remember the mustache. You don't remember anything. He ever said No. The mustache you definitely remember there's a guy with the mustache. But. Some. Guests on shows, a great but Bolton was not one of those. Where if you turn the channel and he's on a show, you disguise good. Wait I ain't gonNA. Watch this. He's good. This guy's always. We was never one of those guys. He was always the Dulles guest and it's now. Here's another example of total fake news. The judge ruled on whether the Bolton Book can be released, and if you're watching the fake news, the Lester Holt to the world. The report would be. Judge rules against the trump administration tremendous blow to the trump administration. Bolton can be released it now. You read the decision, right? It was nothing like that. The judge ruled that the book should not be released that it does contain classified information, but in the judge's ruling. He said there's no point in trying to block it. There are already one hundred thousand copies shipped. They send out review copies, and all that stuff to everybody book reviewers to all the. TV radio stations to media, so judge ruled already one hundred thousand copies distributed. There would be no point in trying to stop it now. The judge is ruling, also said it appears to contain classified information he the judge in his ruling says that Bolton. Could face criminal charges the judge in the ruling, says bolt, and should be forced to return all the profit from the book since it's an illegal act, and the judge specifically says Bolton has opened himself up with this to criminal liability. Is that sound like a ruling against the president? TERRIBLE RULING FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP? Yeah, absolutely I mean that was a defendant. Was Daca case the other day you watch the Fake News, you thought the president lost. They reported it as if the Supreme Court rule, he cannot stop Daca Daca cannot became the ruling, said ruling said he can end dock and he can cancel. They just can't do it with a memo or letter. He's gotta use a different procedure, and and also remember president never wanted to cancel. DACA he just said way back when that was not done in the proper way Obama just wrote it up as a letter as a memo. And he wanted it formalized by Congress. He wanted them to pass it as actual legislation and he said I'll be happy to sign it, so it wasn't trying to cancel. It blamed Chuck. Schumer and company remember that went on for two months or so. We can't craft the legislation. To, take the Obama letter copy and paste it. Hey, speaking of which. Is Tomorrow the primary in New York Tuesday tomorrow. Wow, already Nah. Yeah, Tomorrow's the primary in the fourteenth Congressional district. AFC is being challenged by Michelle Caruso. Cabrera vote for Michelle Caruso Cabrera just remember MCC versus a AC-. It's the chance to get rid of Ao see if she loses in the primary to Mashi out now the only thing is. Have you seen this commercial? She, came up with against Michelle Caruso Cabrera. It's pretty powerful. Hank It's very black and white and Michelle Caruso Cabrera so wonderful woman. She's a CNBC anchor very smart, good person to vote for, but in the commercial shows for years she lived in trump tower. Your husband is a big republican donor because it really is like this is considered the stuff in the world. Remember they used to have a scandal? The game was caught with little boys. This is the scandal well lived and trump tower, and they show you a picture of it. So and then it cuts the AFC. And it says she's one of them, not one of us, and then it cuts the AFC, who suddenly has the thickest Spanish accent you've ever heard? You can barely understand the Spanish so thick, and she's not one of us. If that works doesn't work, but vote for MCC tomorrow. Not AFC looks like Elliott. Angle could get the primary outright. Challenge your way ahead on that one. The question is I mean is turnout and our people are going to go vote. Yeah. That's the thing we'll see but Factories if AFC wins reelection. It is expected that she will then this'll be her. Final term in the house is expected. She will then challenge Schumer. And Take Schumer Senate seat which she could do Schumer knows that he's well aware of that so tomorrow. Look for Schumer and company to pull some funny business. FAO Cease. Tickets ahead in the polls, but if you suddenly loses, you can thank Chuck Schumer and his pals on that one. Those Democrats do control those machine so anything could happen. Hey, check out the web pages a lot of good stuff up there. Did you see this video of one of the cops involved in killing George Floyd is in. I think he looks at Costco and he's buying some food and a woman confronts him. It's like a real Karen Ish woman who loved looking for her fifteen minutes of fame turns on the video and confronts this cop if you haven't seen it. and he's very I mean it shouldn't be, but he's kind of sympathetic in video because he's very. Polite and you wouldn't believe this is the guy two weeks killing somebody, but watch the video. It's pretty interesting. also here Watch Beautiful Beach Cape Cod people enjoying the beach watch when a shark shows. The people run and half the people take out their phones. Capturing for Instagram, Oh, also, this is great. This is Paul Harvey. So one of his greatest pieces ever a powerful tribute to policemen. It's all on the web page. Go to seven ten W. O., R.

DNB: The Coronavirus OMG Moment, What Are We Being Prepared For? (3.12.20)

"This is your drive time. News blast thirty minutes jam-packed with news of the day from a perspective of truth liberty and justice. This is Monica Perez. I'm Brad Brinkley. Taste top story. We have a winner in the Celebrity Corona Virus poll contest pool. You know who it is do. Can I just read the announcement that this Fella made? Please do all right? I'm going to try to remember. What Andy Griffiths accent is? But I think of this as an Andy Griffith thing. Hello folks read it an ir down here in Australia. Who felt a bit tired like we had colds? And some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went slight fevers to to play things right as is needed in the world right now. We were tested for the corona virus and were found to be positive. Well now what to do next. The medical officials have protocols that must be followed pets medical officials with the capital and a capital. O We hanks will be tested observed. An isolated for as long as public health and safety requires not much more to it than a one day at a time. Approach no will keep the world posted and updated. Take care of your cells. Hanks and then Tom Hanks tweeden video with his shirt off for some reason talking about his parents how they're doing and he said they're not really that sick at all which I think is probably going to be the case following but an curry summed it up for us just in case we didn't know what the takeaway was here. She says she tweeted. Okay now we all have someone. We love diagnosed with Corona virus. That is exactly what they talk about in some communications crisis research that I read where they're talking about informing the public through having celebrities are people. They can develop a connection to demonstrating the type of behavior. The public should also take kind of like Ted Cruz did now. He might actually have the Caracas breakfast. Clear what Tom Hanks's and of course they pick Mr Rogers who saved private Ryan the Forrest. Gump the guy of the repository of just simple wisdom Jimmy Stewart of our era. I've always detested him. Jimmy Stewart Jimmy Stewart. Tom Hanks Tom Hanks. I'm sure Jimmy Stewart was was plenty doing the deep states bidding. But so I don't know where to go. I have like so much stuff that is like so much has broken over the past. I think it's forty eight hours. I think we had yesterday. We put up our last our WSB shows for starting February. Oh eight were February. Eighth Twenty Twenty. We started addressing the corona virus stuff. I mean that was real news and you know what the mainstream media cannot handle the truths. I do recommend people go and listen to that that was yesterday's. Dnb Yeah a lot of what we're seeing today or yesterday is referred to the Oem g moment by crisis communicators. It's the moment between business as usual. How things used to be before the crisis hit and then the new normal as a watershed motza watershed moment in this guy. His name is Peter Sand Man. He's like the go-to guy in crisis. Communications he's been communicating with a lot of health and public officials about how to roll out the messaging and he talks about this. He says there's a step in between. This isn't a recent email. He sent to a health public official. There's a step in between business as usual and the new normal that cannot be skipped. They call this the adjustment reaction. Everybody else calls it the. Oh my gosh moment and the key takeaway is that this. Oh my gosh moment must happen in order for people to realize that this is a real crisis and not just a bad flu season. He talks about doing this even when the crisis might not necessarily come in order to prepare the public for a crisis it might come next season. Might come now. So so. He's triggering people intentionally. Yes just to kind of right. Get them ready. This is what he says about that. He says we need to overcome our fear of fear and we need to be willing to frighten people if we want to warn people. We've got to be willing to frighten them. When bad things happen? The bad things will frighten them so what? We have a dinner to frighten them so we need to do it before. So that the game paired. I think that these people are telling themselves that they're doing it for our good and there's one thing that Spiro tweeted. It was the guy in the uniform from the CDC in the eventual one simulation looking exactly like with the same demeanor the same delivery everything actually in front of Congress delivering a similar message and his name is Steven Red and his whole persona is one of extreme trustworthiness and earnestness and he didn't mention at all what they'd come up with in the past like that they'd already gone through this scenario. He's he did not reference it so he's just your masterful most trustworthy liar. Type really deception. He's deceptively which is the perfect political thing the perfect political persona. He talks about the need for these public officials to dramatize and to carry out specific tones. Like you're saying and the needs to rehearse it as well. Well some real stuff has happened over the past couple of days. I'm sure folds into that one is I want to. Oh well trump talked today and so if you just go back and listen to what he said. There's so so much in there but one thing he said which. I've been kind of speculating if I were to see how. Things were ruled out because today was another market. Blood bath like bloodbath. And the trading was halted again and he came out and said. Because I've been thinking they're gonNA have this bloodbath. They're going to hyper stimulate monetary and fiscal. He's talking about that. He's saying we want payroll tax cuts. We want plans to bail. People out policy was saying the same thing they'll probably both get plans in trump was saying how the oil price cut is like a stimulus directly to the consumer. He said he was going to not forget people who make tips for living in his bailout package which I think will mean the end of tipping which I absolutely hate but one thing he said which I thought was a real tell. I think it folds into what the plan is. Which is it's GONNA go down. They put all the stimulus out in the market. So that it comes back up right before the election. And then it's GonNa just crash back to where where it was going to crash to after. But this way they get to do all the stimulus just to get through the election without having to admit it he said the market will bounce back very big and at the right time he said that today and I remember when Obama said something similar in when he was inaugurated or shortly after that in March. I believe of two thousand nine so he's signaling all over the place he also said that Elizabeth Warren if she had twice personally said it out loud twice that if she had withdrawn from the race just a few days previous Bernie Sanders would be the nominee. So really yes. So He's saying that she's split the progressive ticket. She's an inside job. She was working for Biden. Basically is the implication. I found. She hasn't come out in endorsed burn even though their policies are the same. Well it's too late now anyways and Pelosi and trump booth points out how they are absolutely Getting the states to cooperate. So we're we're just having this across the board top to bottom everybody's in line to the small city like Indian Wells California to the to the very uppermost echelon probably the UN and they're all coordinating their coordinate. They have all of the messaging in these pamphlets at this guy writes and it's the same messaging. It's the same script message the message that we're hearing. We're hearing consistent messages from CNN. From Washington Stephen. Colbert comes from this communications research that they do and I found so this communications research that they do this. Guy Peter Sandman yes. He's actually putting out the memos that these guys are reading from he included in one of this post emails that he's sending back and forth and communications. He's having with one of his clients which is a public health official some of the messaging and I read through it and it is basically the exact same as we are hearing now is messaging pamphlets in workshops and guidance. Put out back in two thousand and nine for the H. One and one okay because there were a couple of like clear parallels like everybody's saying the same thing trump said riches this isn't really about the markets. This is about saving lives first and foremost and then you have the medical guys seeing over and over again. The exact same thing like we've just got the denominator wrong. Who says that? And you know what I mean. Like why are they put it just in that way? It's a funny thing because most like regular people you're trying to reach. Don't think like that but just make the and then you'll figure it out and say it enough you'll know what it means it'll mean something to you that is that is educating the public. That is part of the pre crisis situation where they use terms like that related to pandemics so that the public prepares emotionally and functionally so they can better handle it. At least that's the way it's presented when the actual pandemic comes to. That's an intentional strategy. Using that weird language like that. Yeah well it seems like it because I thought I mean not. Everybody just like that doesn't just weird so I was thinking about well. One thing about soccer correction but I just I. If these conventions are cancelled if the political conventions are cancelled you can really not only button up the votes but create a dialectic. Where oh they're going to be a bunch of rogue delegates who were going to go for Bernie and they got suppressed because remember in two thousand twelve. There are a lot of Ron. Paul delegates they literally suppress like they. I think escorted them out of there. They did not want them there so it could actually be a real way to suppress people and I'm sure it is and also as a way to feed that dialectic which makes it look like. It's an illegitimate presidency. Because Biden was the illegitimate campaign was the illegitimate nominee. It should have been sanders as usual and Biden was tainted by the Ukraine stuff. I mean it's just all the stuff you're always going to have legitimacy questions around the president until they change they entire way we vote and I think this is going to usher that you go. We're going to see. The voting online emerge like you posted about that on twitter. Yeah I think so. Set It on the show. Okay so what I think is always true for a correction like this is. This is where the big money guys wait. I heard Carlos Slim like an interview about how he made so much money. First of all he got awarded a telecom monopoly from the government that he maintained a monopoly. Whatever he paid for it was nothing. So obviously. That's how it made his money but he's at his. Dad taught him always way for crash and then by big but of course it helps if you know when the crash is coming so you can sell your stuff at the peak and put it in dry powder and then come out. So that's what they say like in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine like Winston. Churchill is on the on the trading floor and someone showed him. I forget who it is Bernard Baru maybe said check out what happens next and the whole market just fell to pieces and everybody who couldn't maintain their positions because a lot of those positions are indebted around the margin. They had to just sell and fire sale prices and then anybody who was ready with money could go in and scoop that up and that's supposedly how it works so this. I feel like there's another layer here. Which is these all the companies? That were not really prepared for this. All the lesser companies in basically every industry or any kind of tiered industry is going to go bankrupt like many companies will actually go bankrupt. The revenue is drying up two nothing in some industry. So then you take all the little guys. They're going absolutely in free fall. And then you have the big kind of well-capitalized global corporations many of whom probably got a heads up and then they can buy these little guys out at fire sale prices and you have -opoly you have concentration at the top et cetera. And then I have a specific example. All right okay. This I've been wanting to talk about for a while and it's just becoming clearer and clearer. So have you noticed that every single cruise in the news has ended and princess except for one and even that is also owned by carnival. I've heard a lot of princesses in so far. The Krona virus has been in. These ships have been in stories with current virus. Diamond Princess Grand Princess Regal. Princess Caribbean princess. I had written down. There's one called pomona Regal Grand Diamond Regal Grand Diamond Riga Caribbean another one. That just came out today. Pomona is is also carnival. So here's the thing carnivals pumping this up and I said a couple of days ago that said every cruise ship new. So far has been carnival. Diamond Princess Graham Princess Regal Princess Pomona and then two more have been added since then. My guess is they're strong enough to whether a cruise panic while not all their competitors are okay so then so. I was like okay. These guys are gonNA create the panic. They're going to take the hit and there probably prepared for the hit and then other they're going to shake out the industry and I just saw that Norwegian cruise lines is in legal trouble for downplaying the CRNA virus. So they'll sue them into oblivion like people who think they have claim and that'll help carnival but I looked into the history of Carnevale carnival. Do this I think their current president or CEO whatever is a Monsanto guy but their founder was probably British intelligence. He was kind of there for the founding of Israel and the became a citizen there but he was very well connected and in nineteen eighty six eighty seven the head of f Hutton. Who I think was a British guy gave him the heads up. Hey you should take your company public right now. Because the Mar- market seems to be hitting a high so he took the company public raised a lot of money that he needed to grow his business and the next month was the worst market right. We still haven't hit a bigger one day decline than that happened. In one thousand nine hundred seven and all of his competitors had no way to finance expand. Whatever so a lot of them went bankrupt and here he was sitting on a lot of dry powder and that is how his business got such a leg up. I believe he had insider information. The story is that it was just a good tip from you. Know from a guy I don't know and I just feel like they're doing the same thing now that particular. That's why I stay like people. Like why would they do it? This is why I think they would do it. Might do it. Just speculating they talk about doing that. The circumstances where you should withhold information and other people other businesses they do get preparatory information to the broader public does not get they very much in this research or open about. There's going to be instances where we are secret from the public. There's GonNa be other instances where we are more up front with them. It's just depending on their reaction and the timetable that they anticipate crisis event to occur. I do I am making the point though that I think some of these insiders who are playing along are getting. They're getting the information that they need to capitalize on this. So it's not so much what information we have or don't have which is separate thing and it's important but that these guys you know people always ask me who are they. Why would anyone go along with this? Their prices are tanking. There's a couple of reasons why a company would go along with something that would tank. It's price either because its owner has other interests or it wants to buy back its own stock or it's not really the owner. I mean might have other interests like in the broader market. But also some of these. Ceos and stuff are really like political operatives. They're not entrepreneurs they're not really aligned and even if they lost their job or whatever a lot of them have golden parachutes and whatever. So I feel like this eventually one really demonstrates who they are in this case. It's the World Economic Forum Bill and Melinda Gates Johns Hopkins. And everybody who was there and isn't saying anything. J J Henry Shine on. Nbc Universal. There were all. They're not saying anything. I think there were probably many other companies big globalist corporations who were in on it who are allowing these things unfold and I think the cruise thing is a very clear example of how you think it's the cruise industry. It's not it's one company and that company is going to benefit greatly in a way that it's benefited before interesting. I think it's interesting interesting. Tweets I tell people all the stuff that happened like the NBA. Shutdown at season is usually season college basketball. Shut down they might cancel the NCAA tournament the already cancelled the conference tournaments. There's been a run on hand. Soap and antibacterial and toilet paper and traveled to Europe yet completely banned traveled to Europe except for the UK. I know a little little strange little obvious. And we mentioned Tom. Hanks's wife already and that's the alerting. The arresting moment that I think is that all of these things happening on that day that it was declared a pandemic. That's the OMG moment we're suddenly. It feels more real to people who didn't feel real to before because their way of life is suddenly thrown change. I kind of felt like this was coming. I tweeted over the past couple of days. Like just because it's not just because it doesn't mean there aren't real implications science definitely hurt. People like physically financially. Everything and I said like pick the three things that you need if you have to hunker down for a while so I also threw that out to my kids. Did I tell you what they came up with? Remind me things like I was at the stores like. I just tax. Everybody likes. Tell me three things you can't live without. I'm at the store right. My husband's like rice beans and chicken. I'm like okay. I'm getting toilet paper so Mike is one of them. Said oreos Pretzel Crisps and Monster. Then might want who has down Syndrome UK his picture absolute candy corn and Orange Crush so bunker. This kid is stockpiling well. He's feeling silly. Yikes gross gross growth. So anyway that I do think that it was the time to kind of just make sure because and I'm even like trying not to put too much worse suffer my garbage in case they stop picking up garbage for a while the effects are gonna be real and I mean I'm worried about you. Know they do like blackouts on purpose. I'm worried about them saying we don't have the personnel to run this so we're doing rolling blackouts. You know. I'm like free right now. I'm wanted anything. I did not expect anything that happened yesterday to happen. I think expect him to cancel the NBA season well suspicious about the NBA. When those weird Hong Kong tweets and they got political and I was like these guys clearly. A are there sacrificing bigger world. Yeah they're sacrificing a lot of revenue. All these industries to baseball is doing that. Baseball could not be more non communicative sport. I mean they don't have to shut baseball down just because they can't be people in the audience you could. Am I wrong to think I mean even when you tag somebody you've got a glove on your hand? Most of the time this still do the habits of high fiving and district and because they're talking about the transmissibility of it now they're starting to say maybe it can be transmissible through air although yeah. I don't know if that headline is as I think. That headline is intentionally made to create more fear than the reality of it in line with this communication strategy. But I think that they're preparing us for something. I don't know what I don't know if it's now or if it's going to be something down the road but the psychology of the public has changed. It's officially changed and it will continue to over the coming weeks. I wonder if it's as easy to change society as as they mean Italian society. I could definitely see the cross hair have been so a lot of countries in Europe and Italy is definitely. It's like the south here. It is south and it's like the south here. It's like a little warmer personally and physically like temperature-wise but like it always had that kind of warmer more relaxed more personal less economically obsessed. Kind of feel it was like the Catholic thing rather than the Protestant work ethic thing and they're and they're just changing that culture making people scared each other. I saw one headline. I'm not sure if it was real or not that a an Italian positive with corona virus who refused to self quarantine was arrested for murder. Really I saw the headline. I don't know if it's true or not but I mean the fact that those headlines seem possible is scarier. I saw a headline where a lady. An Italian lady was quarantined. Now for two days with her dead husband who had died of corona virus. Yuck can I tell you how not how I'm not saying? This is how it spread. The headline makes it sound like it but the NBA player the first one to test positive for the corona virus the day before. I believe this day before he was doing a press conference and this is when they were still considering canceling games maybe moving locations before they actually canceled the season. He pulled a prank. He was joking around with the media. And there's a line of microphones whenever everything. I have a press conference where all the players and coaches sit and from the perspective of journalists sitting in the audience holding the press conference this player it was Rudy Gobert. He got up and he went and touched every microphone and he was the one who ends up testing the first one testing positive for the corona virus. Find it hard to believe. That's a coincidence. I mean this thing is a PSI ops. So yeah maybe he did that and they told him right so that false positive. I can see I can see them going okay. That's the guy we put the first right like you always say like like watch. What pictures or whatever you put out there about yourself. Because you're you're raising your hand to be Razzi. Yeah he definitely did that did that with that move. Yeah I got some really great tweets and but you can keep them here so this one was really a couple of really good ones was for Ministry of Truth that says phase. Two has started. Hey that's right what you're saying disruption of our daily lives. Now the deep state controlled officials will do anything to disrupt our daily lives in an effort to support their false flag. Pandemic remember the can't produce. This is interesting now. I don't. I didn't validate this or verify. But it's interesting remember. They can't produce any real evidence. Such as autopsies or pathology reports producing real documents are entering data into federal. Archives would be fraud. Nfl Any everything else they are doing is cover covered under the Smith Months Modernization Act of twenty twelve. It's considered propaganda so I might as it's a level of propaganda. Yes and he's saying and this would explain why the science isn't there. I keep complaining that the science isn't there and this Smith Munt modernization. Act of twenty twelve. You might recall. Is the last thing that Michael Hastings? Who's working on? I don't know if Michael Hastings was killed or not. I really don't know but this story like A. He's like the poster child for a Journal of got killed for flying too close to the sun and he was covering that there was a the Smith month thing was saying that propaganda can now be directed. I don't know if it was like had to be inadvertent still or what but it can be directed at. Us populations know that would make sense. With a pandemic the way they talk about the need to guide the public's reaction to cause a reaction before the pandemic and guide the way they react to in the way that they handle it that that would be an argument. For here's why propaganda needs to be legalized towards a domestically. It's actually what I think they do like. Most of these people they get into the system they get into academia science community or Whatever whatever industry whatever area whatever sector you know I always call it academic politics and the media that just shapes opinion. It doesn't actually do anything else. It doesn't have to reflect reality in any way I think people get into that because they think a lot of themselves or whatever and they want to make influencers or I don't know what the hell but they get in there and in order to survive there you have to embrace it and I think most people don't embrace that they're evil. They're not getting paid enough to be evil. I don't think they're evil. I think they're doing what my sister coined as the ethical glass ceiling. Where they're just telling themselves well. This is where this is. I'm allowed to start lying now. Because it's for the good and they ask themselves the question like is this really good yes. It's good because people are too stupid to know. And you have to do it this way. And we all know how people are influenced. How psychologists worked. They don't go beyond that and say people have free will or you can't control the outcome for someone in a democracy. They won't keep asking those questions. I think that they have to believe that. What they're doing is good. And that's why this research on crisis communication absolutely falls in line with what you said there. One part of it. The Guy Talks about the need to give the public something to do in order to suppress their fear because action helps them forget about their fear and he talks about suggesting actions that are harmful or useless. It might could backfire badly. But that's just what you gotta do. Sometimes and he gives an example of. It probably wasn't a mistake to let people give blood in the days after September eleven. Two thousand one only to learn the later their blood wasn't needed had been thrown out so the call for the action was to keep the public from panicking and to give the and this is the same thing that they do with these activists. Gestures is a way of controlling. Yes what was I reading recently? That said that. Oh my gosh. This Ted Kaczynski Book which I'm just so fascinated at how I knew I was being sold yet but I knew it and it really feels and I'm certain now I understand it because his message should. I don't approve of it. I don't you know he killed. Vital approve of that and I don't also proof of his recommendation that we follow this path of extreme revolution but regardless not. We're definitely not at the point where we're going to do it. He says to like completely tear down civilization completely. We're definitely not doing that. But if you buy into like what he's saying about it it can just make you angry and disruptive you can kind of raise your hand that you're that you needs to be put into a cell. I don't know but he says he's he's a genius so he say he says stuff like you have to give people something to do. There is any tells you the personality types. Do they do that here too? Yeah it's a pretty fascinating book. It's called technological slavery. And he doesn't get any money from it and I. I don't think we're going to have a revolution. I'm not buying it but it is very interesting. Yeah it's GonNa be interesting to see how this unfolds in the coming weeks because they've been talking about things being closed until the end of March and now we have the thirty day ban on travel to Europe. It'll be interesting if it goes further than that or think. La Or California. I think they closed San Francisco. I don't know I think there's going to be more announcements coming out. There might be a month or two which makes sense because it's the end of the flu season isn't it? Oh I guess it's March. It's not maybe out there but like I just think I think it's it's going to go see this is this is what the whole event to a one thing was. I think it goes in lops lockstep with the natural cold and flu season so like I think it'll switch to the southern hemisphere when it's cold and flu season it'll be worse there because they're poor and it's kind of more sweltry and whatever they probably have a worse cold and flu season normally anyway so I just I think it's GonNa be more than a couple of weeks is on telling you. I think you're right. I think I hope that what they're preparing us for. Is it something that's dramatic and horrible and I hope it's not hope it's a false flat? I hope that maybe it's the next season. Should these actions they took yesterday definitely? GonNa as I mentioned. Psychologically affect the way people act towards each other and just in general with themselves. I was at the doctor yesterday. I had to take my mom to one of her appointments. And I have never AMMO CD and I've never been so aware of what people's hands were doing in my life and I assume that other people probably aware of what mine were doing before watching each other like a hawk. The doctor even came in and kind of like hesitantly shook the hand and I was kind of like. Why are we doing this? Why are we? Why are we doing this stop? Let's start let's go wash your hands. I've already. He's trump decomposing right now. Yeah so the public alertness and awareness of pandemics and viruses has definitely risen and I was on this elevator and somebody stepped into the elevator. Who looked very sick very frail and very worried it was with somebody else and I was on the other side. This elevator holding my breath at this point but allie four but I heard him whisper to the woman he was with. There's like thirty people in there talking about the little lobby. He just walked through and I got off the elevator right there. I didn't touch anything. I think that that guy thinks that he has corona virus. And was there to be tested. I could be wrong but that is what I gathered from the way that the bizarre way that he was acting. And there's going to be people who that even when it's not you're just going to cause a lot of it's just the psychology of it is definitely impacting healthcare. So if you WANNA go to the healthcare facility you might be hesitant in case there's someone there with current virus or in case there's somebody there and they quarantine you just for having been there right then. You have people who probably should get help like who need antibiotics. Not Getting the sequester of truth real problems and they know darn well they act like. They don't know that they're incompetent. They know in in the sixties. The report from Iron Mountain said we now can tell with a computer program. What a small change and draft legislation will do to the real estate in Lower Manhattan. So I mean if they were talking aren't asked what you're saying The forecast of how they can very accurately predict. Yes the vectors of their decisions. They know what it does the more than they ever would let us know. Absolutely and so that is why. I don't believe in unintended consequences. I think the consequences are foreseeable and therefore must be considered intended. I can't remember who it was. It had that term for the intended consequences might have been Saul Alinsky. But there's definitely a term for that actually trying to call the unintentional unintended consequences. I think it was saw the glossary go back and look through that all day long.

Episode 286 - Making A Sandwich with Office365!

"The following program is produced by the talk radio. Now, my problem is I've got my pointer in the middle of the screen. And I need to move it to the left, but my house is over on the left hand side of the Pat. And if I go any further to the left, it's going to go off the Patt-. Anyway. Give me a call I appreciate it. I'll wait till you hear from you. Comedian Kathleen and you're listening to talk radio something I will never be listening to 'cause I hate technology but for those of you to these guys. Put their episode of Tech. Talk Radio detailer Manda and I'm Justin we are the show, the talks about computers technology and the Internet. Welcome everybody. To see you. Week I was out last week I was what was camping yeah. I. The one and only camp we actually talked a lot about you on the show because we were talking about how you're I. Know You guys miss be so much and it was sean. Glenn. Happy. Yeah. Glen. It was Shaun's fault because he drove by showed you his are his RV and you had to go show them up. To do this, how was it though is honestly did you like it? We loved it going into the whole thing again. So what I did was I rented my neighbors. Thirty foot trailer. He's got a thirty foot camper sleeps eight. It's a really nice long trailer. In order to tow it also rent his truck which happens to be in a Ford F three fifty super duty diesel. So yes. I've never driven a truck that big let alone driven a truck towed towing a trailer behind it. So yeah, I was a little nervous but. You know we he took it with me. Around the neighborhood and Just to kind of let me know like, okay. Why turns you know do this go slow here's your breaking. The trailer has an active brake system. So the trailer will all that stuff. So I was like, all right I feel I feel alright I can do it. So we get going and get on the interstate on the day of and Erickson the seat screaming I got I got my my passenger buddy. He's talking to me about. Whatever it is, I'm not even paying attention because I am driving. An F three, fifty to thirty trailer an interstate at seventy miles an hour shot up. It was good. We got there I actually I was able to back it in one try. I don't know how I was able to do that. But yeah. GOT IT SET UP We were bummed because the state order is says no, no campfires. The governor put because we had the big fires going on we got a four or five of them in. Colorado. Anyway. We were bummed but we went to the ranger station and. He was there I buy fishing license and stuff like that for the day and I'm like, yeah, we're Kinda. bummed. became have campfires. He looked at me and he kinda side he signed and looked at the ground I'm like. What what happened he goes. Yeah. You can have campfires I'm like wait. What do you mean the governor he goes yeah. Yeah. I know you're going to say the governor said you can't have it. Well, the governor's orders weren't taking correctly this no open burning you. Can't start a fire in the ground surrounded by some rocks and say, yes, my campfire. No, it has to be an established firepit which campsites have firepit. That's cool. Good. Yeah. We bought some we bought some would We put it up there and the wind kicked in. It. So I was getting a little nervous because there's Raslan really close and it's really really windies I put out the fire within an hour ganja. Little. bummed. But the next day great day we went to go fishing week cast the air line out on Eric's brand new fishing pole. He'd never fish in his entire life I handed him the. Pull and I said look if you get if you feel if you feel the the rod tug and pull away from you, let me know no those sooner. No later excuse me then I let go of his rod and I turn away to get mine literally a second he goes daddy daddy it's pulling I'm like no. Eric. If not, it's not only Because Daddy Daddy and I turned around and I'm like what and I look and his rod is tipped over the. Onto. I'm. Reel in. Fish got my worm. Mad and the moment that happened the wind picked up and it was so windy that everybody got off the lake we all stopped fishing. We we drove back up we basically spent their whole day in the camper because it. Sounds like fun though let you had a real Andy Griffith opie moment there with you know with your boy I, think that's pretty cool I. Did that was that was fun. I. Wish it was a little bit better. As, we were packing up I lost my cool because. I saw I turned around. I saw. Eric. And he was whipping back and forth his fishing rod in the air with A. Hook. On it. And I remember. I know but I remember when I was a kid I did that and I hooked my dad in the face because I was whipping it around and he a member his cheek in stretched out as I'm pulling on it he's like stop. And I thought of that moment and I lost my cool and I was like bought a dog. Jeld. Go Whoa L.. But I had to explain it to this happened before I saw that moment and I did not want that to happen to me because I know how painful that must have been for my dad well, yeah. Yeah. I was like, no put it down right now. So I kinda lost my cool but we made up for it. That's that's pretty cool though it sounds again good time we did and we got back safely everything was cool. How big was the fish? What they got away? One that got away off got be at least a twenty pound. Founded least. Just based on how Eric was holding that ride I mean I think that was that was like a trophy fish on. Cool. So the other day we had talked in you went through a couple of weeks ago on the show we were talking about you have a problem with hard drive and you ended up getting fixed. We're GONNA talk about some of the other techies you've been able to overcome in one that has really tick you off. But we were talking about chronic and it turns out a honest says just put out a brand new copy a a brand new version of their software across true image twenty, twenty one. And I mean, I've been used in a Krahn US way back and I mean if you want to make a copy of a hard drive and update and go to a large when you make a great backup that in case anything happens. Recovery Yeah what I've done in the past and It's been awhile subtype reinstalled windows, but I've done an install of windows right and then install the programs that I'm definitely going to use and that would be adobe. We use that for the show we use it for video stuff the whole bit I'll installed the Microsoft. All install. Any package that I would need for that and then make image. Complete backup so that way in case anything ever happens. Know I can just install that again at least have that standing by that. So if I need to do that I can. So. We decided to go ahead and reach out and talk to them now just you gotTa. Copy, twenty twenty one. Did You Did. You like it? Did you use it? I did I set it up. It was Sean. I was surprised. How easy was I set it up we launched just said I. Want to back it up. Says it found my removable. My. What is it a six terabyte? Drive that I have and it out right away and. I think it was like click next next and schedule and yeah and it started in. It did offer me the cloud storage br mentioned that my backup was going to be like. Around four and a half terabytes, they only offer a free one terabyte to start with, which is good. If you just want to put like some some serious documents on there, but I did not want to put my entire backup on the cloud. So I just I didn't want obviously pay for the upgrade to it, but they do offer it. Yeah. So if you do WANNA get more online storage by all means, they have that as well. Excellent men have you ever use it the aquatic. Might but I now I let him handle all that. GIF for for backups it's it's really a great thing in in one of the new features is the ability to back up Microsoft's office suite office three, sixty, five, which is pretty cool. So I figured, let's go and get the button on the line and standing by we have the COO for the company Gaidar magner off to always a joy to talk to gate Armaggedon off who is the chief cyber officer Coo with chronic and is with us on the line got are always great to have you on the show. Thanks for coming on. Thank you. Invite me anti every year we get a little surprise as to something new. That is a part of the across true image software package which. Be. Honest you. We've told our listeners this if you're going to have anything in your toolbox when it comes to software, this is what you really need to have, and you really step that up with the newest version of twenty twenty one. Yeah. Thank you. It's amazing. Amazing to hear it from you and for the listeners who may not know us that well, I will just give a quick overview who we are Aquarius used to be a backup company for eighteen years. So we were delivering backup solutions, and then recently we transformed the company to Cyber Protection Company. So we combining the protection which is back with US hyper security and with the trimmings twenty twenty, one we actually doing. Pretty exciting thing we are doing I would say revolution and the consumer protection like we did years ago when we introduced our full image backup for computers and back in two thousand three, I don't believe there are any other solution that would allow a customer to create a full image backup system with everything on it. While it's still running without any interruptions and the customer could recover to a dissimilar hardware to a new computer when they moved to a new computer dow was that was a real revolution at a time an image for our listeners who maybe don't know this is when you take your your hard drive that's running inside your computer, and it's almost taking a snapshot of it and saying we're. GonNa move everything from here to this maybe larger hard drive or drive that's a little faster and with then we're going to be able to pull that old drive out put this one in this can work just like the other one did but better because you've gone to a larger size or faster drive that's what imaging allow somebody to do when they went to upgrade this is. The software package everybody needs to have. Yeah, and a lot of people were using US exactly for that purpose. So you have to think about what to back up but if you lose finally can recover while file youth whole drive or computer can recover whole computer. So people were doing that but now we needed to do something more. We needed to integrate security because the traditional backup is. Not. protecting people that well, anymore as everybody's not working from home, everybody is now in the cross era of the attackers, 'cause you used to work from a corporate network and some it guy was taking care of it. But now you are in your home network that may not be secure at all in you have multiple devices in the same network that can be attacked as well like. Not. Isis. Cameras or even smart TV's you can attack that device and then get to your computer from it. So security became a huge issue and what we've done with version twenty, twenty one, and that's why I call it revolution again is because we combine security and data protection we used to have this protection against ransomware, but now we have built onto virus phantom, our real time scanner realtime protection against all types of malware we haven't on demands can of. Antivirus, can we can scant you backups and discover something that is almost impossible to discover on writing machine we would have things like with they'll train where we can prevent you from getting to a militias websites. Somebody sends you an email pretending to be USPS and you click on it because you want to track it back but then you see that actually looks like USPS and then they ask you for some information like rogue and SORTA social security number in in reality it's just a fake website it right they look like. And they your l. no look like similar. So. Where did protection as well, and also we added the protection four VEP conferencing applications running Zuma bags on Microsoft teams. We protect them as well because also author rounds at the very deep system level. So we can protect those applications against injections again against. Viruses or ransomware stealing the data from. Those applications? raking those applications in became an extremely important. So we packaged together into one product and made it, and we proud of it made it really easy to use you just install it. Collects you have full image of your system backed up to the cloud and you have all the protection, the maples on your computer. Now you talk about this backing it up to the cloud when they purchased of when our listeners purchase a chronic true image twenty, twenty one, do they get an across cloud account with that is that is that something extra and how much space can they actually use? So we have an option where you can buy without any cloud storage. You have just the local backup capabilities and local. It means that you can back up to anything attached to your computer. So drive or network storage, device and other computer network but if you WANNA. Backup to the cloud and we definitely commander to do that you can't, and you get finally gigabytes one terabyte and up to five terabytes at both come at some certain cost but the the data's is very important. So only make sense to to they actually schedule. So that say they use their computer once in a while maybe. They've got something maybe every couple of days or at the end of the day, can they ask schedule an incremental backup to the cloud? Yep, absolutely. So the way it works is that you it's very flexible. So by default, if you do nothing, it will be once a day or once a week scheduled a works for most of the most of the people. But if you really want to be flexible, you count set up a certain our everyday a twice a day five times a day or whatever. You can even do like continuous backup if you just wanted to have everything backed up to the cloud and the way it works, it will be incremental. So the. First. Time. You will get Snapshot Obvious System and then will just upload older changes from your system was exactly liked for the chronic program over past years to get his ability that if I'm moving from a computer to another computer that I've got programs that are running, they may have an issue they may be a hardware change. Windows may not like what I'm doing does it still offer to chronic image twenty twenty one still offer kind of an ease of use in in moving making that transition to a new computer yeah. Absolutely. It will be terribly whatnot because I, use it all the time. Remember when it was last time I reinstalled windows but Migrate my system I just create the complete image backup and then I get him like a USB drive into another machine recovery racing there, and we have this capability where when you recover to. Complete completely new type of hardware and something may not be compatible with your system. You can just download the drivers split up the same hard drive. Or USB drive that you use to recover, and we'll get those drivers recover the system. So the system will be riding on your machine. Then it professional can use this at appreciated but honestly for our listeners, the the end user, the consumer. With very little background they can get up and you're using this in no time to be very comfortable knowing their data safe. It's great peace of mind and you know honestly. I can only tell people so many times we've told them on the show backup I mean I know the cyber protections we love that as a part of true twenty, twenty one because it's like you said, you could back up something with viruses than obviously that does no good. So my having this added protection cyber protection in there it's a great idea. It certainly is because again, it's an overall round. Wellness check on your Like I. Think we were talking about this earlier. It's like a castle. You've created what these layers right layers of protection and the interesting thing here is that. We see more and more people actually using some or my backup, some form of security, and we really really like it because it's extremely important that we will. Defend our systems against the cybercriminals but when use the backup and the antivirus, the not connected not integrated the rest of me. that that can that can happen here. So ontiveros may not be able to catch Simul the type of ransomware viruses and we see that happening all the time 'cause separate criminals that are creative, and then you don't have data you cannot really recover and also what the new viruses do. They would attack your backup, and if the backup is not protected, then they can take down the. Backup obligation corrupt the files in the backup and corrupt the files being sent to the cloud, and this is actually happening with that type of malware that we see now appearing all the time. So you do need to have not only the backup and antivirus on the same system, but you need to have the protection for the backup application of the back of files and without integration wheels. To do what? Because Sale Self Protection? So the where is not able to disable get back or corrupt you backup because just recently we we we've seen any stories where some major company would be hit by ransomware is impossible to imagine that they will not running any kind of backup or any kind of on the virus under systems the they were running it, but the problem was. That, they were hit by ransomware the disabled corrupt backups to the was the data in that there's wasn't able unable to catch it. So it took days many many days to recover. Now, this things are happening to everybody who just working from home everybody's a target. This gives the opportunity for the BAT agents bad actors to go ahead and get into your system, and then access the corporate gateway. Because obviously, they're influx trying to figure out. Okay. We gotta do this. We gotta do this. We got to open this up. So there's been a lot of holes and they can get in through the home networks exactly like you'll have your kids playing on a computer at home and they have an old patch system. They don't care about security at all they open whatever links out there and the WIFI network, it'd be protected. So the. Attack would install something that machine, and then that would attack your machine over your Wifi network or home network whatever you have, and then what happen is that your machine will get infected and then you connect your corporate network using a VPN and that's how they got to the corporate network and they steal steal the data and the thing is and that's important to understand for everybody that in the past those hikers attackers were very smart guys. Now the smart guys at designing the use to attack people but anybody can take those hacking tools from the dark web and start using it. You don't have to be a computer scientist to do it. You don't have to think about how to write a program. You can just pull that software and start spreading it through email or copied to network shares. So anybody can be a hacker and I'll think covid nineteen people sitting at home not much thanks happening outside of your house right. So what do all those criminals are doing now? The Oh at home. They have something cybercrime exactly now, a lot of people always wonder what about my my devices, my smartphones tablets does chronic offer protection for those devices as well. Yeah, absolutely. So if you have an iphone android and he used out cloud storage, you can back up all the data meaning like your picture you'll lose your contacts. You can back it up to the cloud is very convenient because you have all your data in one place. So he have multiple devices, multiple computers, you have all the backups in one place and you can just go online and download whatever information you need, and what different versions of this are available. We have a few dishes cornish stretch twenty, twenty one. we have three types of subscriptions we call them. Essential premium essentials is a subscription without cloud storage for those people who for whatever reason cannot use cloud and have Internet connection or they may live in the area where Internet is just too expensive. So they not using that. Then we have advanced a subscription that includes hundred gigabytes of cloud storage. It's enough for most of the. People who use while just a few computers and mobile devices. We, have a premium subscription that goes with one terabyte for more. You can buy up to five terabytes storage and that also includes a few. Had YOU SEAN CAPABILITIES? digital notary recall it according to. which is basically a way to certify to file that you have and put those little digital certificates in the blockchain, and then you can verify that you have their reach of file. That's a very interesting technology because in the digital world creating a copies, easy controversy, control the copy, and then you can modify a copy and it's very difficult to prove that you have their regional and when it comes to legal documents or to some intellectual property, the any modification can be disaster. So this technology allows even home user to certify that the files that they had where the regional fires at certain point in time. Future anytime in the future, it can verify certify that you still have their caucus that's trial. So again, if our listeners get more information, all they need to do jump on the world wide web check out across A. O. N.. Nis, they can order this. They don't have to get up and go to the office store. They can actually order this and downloaded from the website make that purchase right there. Yeah. Absolutely. I. I. Still See a lot of people going to stores to buy software. Now I don't really see a lot of people going to stores anymore. So everything's online right I still shop I still go but yeah, I get it online. I'm envious. I'm working from home on time for me going to a store is like a trip now? Yes. Yes. It's kind of scary sometimes. Well, listen. I'm talking to you I look forward to even I mean what you've made. Possible with Trim Twenty twenty one it's really great especially when it comes to the security features, I think our listeners. Should definitely have this on their devices whether it be a laptop or pc or Mac even you offer Mac protection as well. gator. Magda. Thank you so much for coming on the show again, and we look forward to looking for twenty twenty two. Gosh, seem so far away. Thank you andy. I'm definitely looking for twenty twenty two actually before the year twenty, twenty one because there's twenty twenty one so good and hopefully, there is no cobb at twenty or whatever. Exactly I hear you. We just bypass twenty twenty anyways that's for. Anyway, thanks for coming on the show. We'll be back with more of talk radio and now back to tech talk radio. Most downloaded woman and you're listening to Tech Talk Radio and visit me on my website. Cindy MARGOLIS DOT COM. Thanks you guys. Love you. Back. Radio. I'm just let me. And I'm Andy. Taylor. Thank you for being here. So cool interview. COOL SEGMENT WANNA. Thank it or bank dinner off in the folks chronic coming on and talking to us and we'll see if we can secure some. giveaway copies because it's really a great software pack. Yeah. Absolutely. That would be cool. So speaking of hardware and software you kind of decided to bite the bullet and do some upgrading. Didn't you? Yeah you know I a couple of days ago. I had a problem with my computer when I turn it on, it was saying CPU fan failure and I was like Oh that's not good. I've got I've got a water pump, but it wasn't the the water pump itself is plugged into a different. It's actually a dedicated pump channel on the motherboard, but the fan itself that blows through the radiator I think that's what was failing and I couldn't get it to boot up but I decided to go ahead and start pulling pins and just trying to figure things out and you know receipt in the pinch for it obviously seemed to work but I'm here in. I don't know I'm not really hearing anything. Weird. But I'm seeing like my fans are just. Going down a lot so I think it might be failing. So I decided. All right. Well, it's time to get a new. Wanted to get a new water cooler for this this is a new CPU you got right brand new motherboard brand new CPU Yep all right. So but I'm over clocking it too. So it's obviously running how much you over clocking it I'm at five Gigahertz oh. My Lord. Really. Yeah. Wow. So that's why water cooling basically. But I wanted I was like you know what? Let me get one that's a bigger I'm using a one hundred forty millimeter fan water cooling system I decided to go with the two hundred, forty millimeter. water system. So I I was looking at my case and I realized I'd I bought this case back in twenty ten? and. So it's kind of old and it even have a window on I had to put my window and myself I literally just use my Jemele. Carved out a section of the side panel and input plexiglas on it's such a it's such a odd job but it it works rate anyway. But I, I decided you know what this new fan water cooling system I'm going to get doesn't fit so I had to get case but I got a practical a fractional design nice It Looks Pretty Nice. It's not the typical rectangle shape. It's actually kind of fractional why they'd get their name so it Kinda PC PICKER OR I Just went to. I think what did I do one of the actually radio news? Well, I just went I went to. A website that deals with a breakfast products grays. Like like. Like blanks benedict. and. Bacon and blinks. Oh Yes yes. It's about a new. Took me a second. Yeah. Yes. Okay. So we're on the same page here. Yeah, and I went to that. Yeah. I'm sorry. Bless you andy. Allergies anyway. So I went to there and I bought the case and then I thought you know what? At the same time? My memories the only thing that's really hasn't been upgraded yet. I didn't have the money to time. So I went ahead and got some new talking about memory and your computer right? Yes. Yes I thought we were on the same page there hopes we're talking about a computer upgrade. Okay Yes. So I bought some new memory for the computers well, and Yeah I. So I got my super notification my water cooling and memory should be here I dunno sometime next week but the case says that it was voided. Like when I go to look at the order, it says voided are may something or whatever I'm like wait what Sei contact chat I'm like Yo what's going on with this like why is it saying voided and seed? I haven't received anything from you and they're like, oh, no worry sir, just be just be cautious that the the carrier has not picked up your package yet. So the tracking information has an updated I'm like. Talking about tracking information I'm talking about order the order it says. Voided. What is going on and I did not receive a refund from you if you did void said product and they're all no, it's fine with the single shipping. So now I'm sitting here wondering what's going to happen man this particular website I don't know if I'm going to order from them again because there's John with Broadway had the problem with the same company. yeah I think customer service just gone downhill also kind of Shane Company. Well. We'll see we'll see what happens. Are You Are you going to be getting this new graphics? Everybody's talking about and loving and? I'll? Amanda Amanda shake it or because we could see on the cameras, you could see us and she's just taking a hit because she's feeling what everybody has been feeling that just bought a card, a graphics card in the last six months or computer. Bomb. Wait but. The same thing with a smartphone. Yeah the the. That we go through the smartphones, you know here a little rumbling here and there but then again, you just think okay I wanna get the new device you drop a lot of money on it and then they turn around go we got something new and better you know speaking of smartphones I'm really interested in this new pixel, the Pixel five coming out in November you know they're going to keep the price low. They said that the Pixel five is going to be released for like six ninety nine, which is highly the price of the new iphone. And so. Half the price of the new Samsung know exactly. So they're really trying now they're not using the latest snapdragon processor by they're saying that what they're doing a good trade off between the price point and that processor you're still going to get better camera better perform not best performance. There are multitude of phones that are. Better than it by. For, that price point, you can't beat it and you're still going to get the best. Camera phone on the market. Well, you know they keep talking about the image sensors for the what what's going to be the new iphone which looks like a if you looked at it, it looks like the top of a stove for the iphone acts. To look just like, yeah, which model is that which one is that? The Samsung note twenty I just got like a couple of weeks ago. Did you get the pen with it too? Yeah. Yeah. A little tablet things I saw that the other day and I was looking I thought you know what I might want to give that a try. Walk away from your pen. It notifies you hey, you left your pen over there. Really. Low Low Energy Bluetooth on it. Yeah. Swiping the it's kind of like a magic one thing. It's like you could you know do stuff in the error and the color with it and do all kinds of stuff. Retail for. I I WANNA. Say it was like fourteen maybe. Barrier. But then you also had like trade and capabilities in like buy one get one was different carriers vital Datsun for that. A LOT OF MONEY But that's where we are with cellphones and that's why really interested about this this Pixel five I'm thinking, I'm just GonNa go ahead and buy a pair of them. You know an upgrade mine upgrade my wife's and Give one. To your son, give one to Eric. I might give the old one to him. So this new graphics card they this chart out and then they got this other one that's that's now available and they're talking about it, and this is supposedly somebody. So you just bought a twenty eight year I know you dropped a lot of money on that Justin eleven hundred dollars. All right. So they announced his new one, thousand, nine hundred and they're saying it's the like somebody. Reviewed it and they got their hands on a thirty ninety and they got a chance to test it out and review and they said it makes the twenty the graphics look like an Atari like, yeah. They said it really is. That right there just makes my stomach. Turn I mean. I. Get pains hearing that comment because again I just dropped eleven hundred dollars on this thing. Yeah and to know that I need to upgrade again because you know me I have to have the latest of everything. Yeah. We're not right if I can afford it and my wife says, yes. which is probably not going to happen. So. Andy. Can you buy me thirty nine? I want to get myself one. More, it'd be worth more than my computer itself. Yeah. Basically, he gave Moran a story. The other day I thought was pretty good because you know the problem is you've got the thirty ninety it's got to handle all the graphics are out there. I mean you've got flights, you call the duties. Red Dead Redemption to I mean there is not a graphics card on the planet yet I haven't seen. It can do thirty ninety that can run red dead redemption Oltra settings at you know even not even ten eighty P don't even mention fourteen forty or four K. now what happen Pc Gamer ran an article and they have a link from the twitter page at PC Gamer crisis remastered highest graphics setting is called. CAN IT run crisis. Are you. Are you serious what it says yeah criticism. Level Kennett run crisis out of all the games that came out the market that was the first one to say this might just you know make your computer or get to it's knees and not be able to do anything and I never understood that because I played the original crisis. Yeah. Granted I did I didn't have a top of the line system at the time, but I was like, what is the big deal about this? Maybe it was because I didn't get to see the beauty of it because I didn't have that high end system, but it's been ever since used as like you said as running is yeah, it is a benchmark system. Yeah. It's crazy. It's even have a fiscal crisis score. Like. Yeah a crisis. Murder crisis benchmarks future mark thing. But yeah. Yeah it's pretty crazy. We take a quick break. We come back. We've got more tech talk radio I ran into a little bit of problem trying to get Microsoft teams going and I figured you know what I mean to. You seem to know a little bit about that. So May-. Maybe. You can help me out a little. We'll be back with more of talk radio I mean detailer and Amanda and I'm just find us on the Internet Talk Radio Dot Com we'll, be right back. Back to talk radio I'm Amanda Taylor and I'm Justin Lemme. So I have a little bit of an issue. So I went ahead and finally. I finally got office three sixty. Three. Sixty A. Discount version got five days off. Got Three Sixty five right and I want you got it from a guy named Mike. Right. Behind behind the dustbins that the gas station. Office I can't you office over here. Discount you get five days off. He had. He had a real budget version of Microsoft one thirty that was. So I went ahead and got it. And the goal is to sell it in glorious computer. Then I'd have a mind and it was kind of cool. I still haven't gotten rid of outlook to like what kind of version which which. I think there's different. ITERATIONS. You get home business. This is six users, but it gives you gives you outlook it gives you words. Is that what it now now it's it's a home. A piano and I mean but I have installed on a computer I have outlook two, thousand seven, which I still use I mean but it works great. I mean I have even amending. I'm not a techie but even I know that's not a good idea really is it not I mean is it time to go? Oh. My Gosh Sixty five is the best thing since sliced see I tried I tried using the translate program in word, which is one of the reasons I mean say, Ooh, this is cool and by the way. If you're listening to that, you can go ahead and use that comment. Right? There is the best thing. You can put that on the back of the box. Talk Radio. Free Sixty five is the best place bread. That's this week. Shows name. Coach marks. Like it so So my problem is I wanted to install Microsoft teams and get that going and wouldn't let me because I my work I work for I have my own address, my own email address with that, and then I signed into they use. Oh, they get sweet. You can only have one Riyan I'm having a hard time like just trying to get it to teams to run and every time they do their email address POPs up. Are you using the edge browser knowing Music Crow Back part of your problems. To the new Ed do edge by the way is actually really good. A Guy who hates change that I should start changing everything. I swear on average speed. Yoda. The universe. It is better than chrome in so many ways. Completely chrome ice I tell you to Peter. My bother installing hollow. You're really it is a chromium based browser. Yes. So it is using the same technology behind chrome. However, I have one of those resource monitor's on my on my rain meter that shows me how much ram is being used by any particular. So I opened up chrome my extensions that I. Normally have installed opened up edge, which by the way when you open up at, you can import not only your bookmarks in your cookies from chrome you can import your extensions as well because at the end it is rome-based. So I imported everything over. So it was a one for one replica of browsers. Blohm three sixty, five account time hold on Route Meghan whole. A real quick chrome was using two gigabytes of Ram jets sitting there with three tabs. Open Had Google facebook and Youtube Chrome or I'm sorry edge with chromium edge was using one point eight. I know there's a lot of people listening that are like me that have been stuck in sticking with chrome because I've used chrome forever it's got it's got extensions but is chrome. Manager and all of that. All that stuff. Windows. Phones like you don't even have to bookmark things anymore you can put things in collections on the site like a have to do a whole blog about it. It's really really great. So so nicely, I should you're saying I should bite the bullet I should start using edge and I should start using the full office suite and stop using outlook two, thousand, seven yes Microsoft Word Two thousand, seven yes please nearly. The love all. Holy toggle between different accounts I have I have three accounts myself. So I constantly am tongling through things if sometimes, it does get a little bit confused because it's still somewhat knew, right. So something you could try if you're going to use the web-based the the browser based teams is you could go in incognito mode and that sometimes solve some of those issues and and I would honestly just say install the APP for teams because there's a lot more features that are always coming. On My smartphone. Computer what do you think about putting office three, sixty, five on my smartphone is that that's something I can do right. I think you can I mean you got six licenses I'm sure that also applies to mobile but I personally don't see. I don't see a reason to put the entire office three, sixty, five on your mobile I have outlook on my mobile I don't have three, sixty, five installed but I'm using my account, which is a three, sixty five. Yes, they do they have an office, they have an office. Translator. They've got three versions of office from Microsoft that are more designed for Mobile I just don't think. You need to put word excel all that stuff on a mobile. overkill. Okay. Cool. I'm going. So I'm going to do that. You said that that's the way I'm Gonna I'm GonNa go to starting tomorrow. I will. Spain shot so. We know that you're being. Say Listeners Stay tuned for Year Twenty, twenty, two Andy finally. Tomorrow every time and he says I'm GonNa do it tomorrow? It's like it's never tomorrow I watch space balls on edge. Yeah. I watch baseball Microsoft EDGE THERE YOU GO. Justin you got to ask you about flight SIM. We haven't talked a couple of weeks. Yeah. Have you been anything new from that that you've been finding? I mean when it first came out, we jump on it and play a little bit I was immediately frustrated because I I guess I didn't really understand the autopilot system and. Going crazy I actually you know what I gave up on my A. C. H. Products Yoke System. I did upgrade the springs on it. I was able to find a to`real on Youtube about how to take it apart and upgrade the springs inside. So it's a little bit more sensitive, but even then it just was kind of cumbersome I actually like flying with my joystick, my thrust master or Sitex, sitek Rhino extra five I find that a little bit better for me to fly with and having more fun with it but. I'm really annoyed by the autopilot system and then I realized that I'm just being a giant dummy because these planes are like that. I. Mean that realistic I could easily just go because it might complaint was there was no documentation. There was no way for me to figure out how to use this. A lot of people have been saying them. Yeah. Yeah. Go and read the aircraft manual like literally really the actual aircraft manual will tell you how to use it everything about it like bud online. Detection and it was like Oh my gosh I didn't even think about that. Yeah. I read I read the manual now I'm having a great time actually my buddy that lives in Bogota Colombia. We play games all the time we decided to do a flight where I would leave from Denver he leave him Bogota and would fly and legs, and finally eventually meet up somewhere about halfway between Bogotanos Denver rape. Last night, we made that happen Oh. We took a flight. I think I was in Tampa Bay. Florida. He was in Havana. Cuba and we came up together and landed at the exact same moment right behind each other at key. West Florida now that's pretty awesome. I like I like and it was real time. It was we we scheduled these flights that we would be flying at the same time every night even though we couldn't see each other we knew that somewhere in that giant yonder distance. There was my buddy to fly, and then finally we get closer and closer all of a sudden I look out on the horizon I see his username above the horizon and it was like seeing a long lost friends. Though I'm sitting there talking to him and discord the entire time. But as cool to see that nowadays you an update yet they done which you know. I think the patch is September twentieth, right? Because they've been talking about. Okay. We found these little bugs here and there there's going to be a huge. Amount of changes that are going to take place got to re read the patch notes. A lot of is going to be fixed with the first vatsa integration where you can do you know the real time virtual air traffic. That's one thing they're gonNA fix or fixing but a lot of its autopilot autopilot wasn't acting like it should I knew it I knew it even though I was like I know how to use this. Now, this thing is not acting, right? It was confirmed a book. So there's a lot of changes coming up now Amanda, you had a problem headphones last week and it was just drive. She was having them for the one. She's wearing right now or wireless steel series are two seven. And it was funny because I would never have ever thought of this. There is a way to fix it. So if an area of listeners have had this happen, what did you have to do? So. So yeah, last week I was having trouble we're trying to get on and then like right middle of a sentence were cut off and then he did it like three times when we were trying to start the show and I was so frustrated. So I just said forget it and we put them away so basically the left headphone the one that. Has the microphone you take off the earpiece and there's a little pinhole towards the top. Now, there are holes on the side. So don't quote those are like your, you know your wiring and all that but there's a tiny pinhole towards the top of the that side of the headset and basically I just looked it up online you hold down, hold it down. For like maybe ten seconds or so and then when you released it, then you just plugged everything back in, turn the headphones on and they worked and I haven't had any problem. Reset then yeah, it was. Set an I just use the little pen from my cell phone like you know how they come with the little. Pop out the card or whatever I just use that thing popped it in. Did it boom I? It's been fine ever since or Bernie listeners that have run into issues with their Bluetooth. Headphones there look to see if there's some kind of a reset. Now Amanda, I wanted to ask you a question. You are big into minecraft as we can see behind you you've been. Streaming on it, but you're also big into like the minecraft education. Now, this is something Kinda new isn't it? It's not been around for a long time I what are the differences? What are the differences between the game of my craft and then minecraft education like? I don't understand it. So education edition is a little different because it has they have less impacts already premade that you can download. You can play by yourself just There's there's different features of the coding capabilities and you also have the ability to like you can build your own world. They could encode the coating edition of minecraft from Java or bedrock but. It's very safe and that's what I like about it is because it only connect to it through your tenants. So if like, let's say, all three of US wanted to play let's say Eric wanted to play one of the kids at our school on a play or the three of us here wanted to play. We would have to have the same tenant email. With one another. So like for example, today, we played on email what intend to email. Basically, like if you are, let's say you're you know a Denver Unified School district or something like USD dot. Or? Because they have to be. Yeah, it has to have at EDU account. That's another thing like you have to have a viable you account or you have to be a Microsoft global partner and you have to you have to have like the certain specs and Ip settings like there's certain things that need to be allowable. Anybody can connected US new. So if I gave you my code right now like for example, this afternoon, a group of us from Scotland and Wales and an Ireland in UK. We all got together and my friend one of my girlfriends in Florida and I we were on with them on twitch and we were all playing the same addition but we had to have an account that was all linked together. So we had to borrow borrow basically an account from them and the person that was hosting the world. Teacher is only one that can start the world. Usually kids cannot start world's 'cause that's another safety thing and if you guys tried to get in even though we broadcast the code globally on twitch, you can't get in no matter how I like that though. That's Biggest part for me because I'm you know we're all worried about our kids and safety. As a teacher then you start in the room you also kind of like that Super Adman you like the God of the servers. So you can do things you can move things around you can blow things up if you want. And, you can turn on and off the the modes to feel like I have the right to turn on and off the modes but I also have the right to give students the ability to turn off on the mode. So I can turn off mobs anything harmful, right? I can. If we just doing coatings of the, I can put barrier blocks up. So they can only go in a certain space if I want them to what I'm going to limit the whistle how far they can see that kind of thing. What kind of lesson would you teach like give me one example of a lesson that you'd be teaching in this real quick. That one of my favorite lessons, it's called the mindful night and it's already premade. It's in the Microsoft. The Microsoft, education. Edition website actually, and it's basically teaches you how to how to self regulate your emotions. I get teaches you how to breathe teaches you how to walk through the world and look at things that are around you. You become night basically like a knight in shining armor get knighted by the Queen at the end you go on a mission and you're GonNa last and it teaches you how to play minecraft while you're doing it now a lot of our kids already. Know How to do that but there's also math packs in there. There's history packs. There's some beautiful things that immerse myself played out. That are just like you walk into the Italy, you're going into Italy you go into the Renaissance you walk into a museum and there's like all these glorious things that are on the walls like artists and you go talk to Michelangelo and Leonardo, and so it's just there's so many different things you can do with it. From the little ones like today we did a thing on phonics and we went out in the world and we picked out you know shelves because they had the s h sound and we brought them back. Can we put them on the board with the S H and we went out and did something else? You know we got another thing within the sound and like it's just things that are being created right now that are proprietary to specific ages and grades. How do you get more districts to really? Get more districts to really say we want to do this. You have to have a Microsoft account. So you have to have a edu account with your district. And then you just you know get on board and ask them you know what can I do to come on and just reach out to some global trainers and global mentors and yeah that's what I. That's what I've always said learning has to be fun. Really. seriously. It's gotta be aged for kids and even for me as an adult I'm learning so much his last six months playing with my friends all over the world like I would have never done that before you know like you say with the with flying the planes with your with your buddy, it's like I get on with my friends all around the world and we do all these creative things together and I'm you know my? I really honestly want to get involved with minecraft when he gets a little bit older right now he likes to mess around with like animal crossing, but I really WanNa do that with him. So I was thinking olds that are doing it. Wow and Eric Eric knows how to use the computer. I mean, he already knows what minecraft is everything but I'm thinking what I'm GonNa do instead of building a computer next year I. Think I'm just going to get the new xbox series X. And let him play on that while I'm sitting next to him on my computer and we can play together for him I. Think Controller would be easier than using a keyboard mouse his age. Yeah. Yeah. Definitely. It's a pretty cool because our website of the week that Amanda was able to put together actually ties in with our last discussion talking about minecraft in education, which I still think is is pretty good. I've had some teachers who have told me that they started listening to the show because they were getting some really good ideas on how to kind of immerse themselves more technology. But also about how technology is being used in the classroom, which is I think is phenomenal. I liked that. So, you've got to go website of the week for us yes. Oh, I found. Some some friends of mine you know they kind of dabble a little bit, the minecraft education world, and recently they released some I. Know I've talked a little bit with you guys about the East sports edition of Minecraft Edu on their site, and I just wanted to kind of give them a little shot out and say you know immersive minds dot com if anybody wants to check them out, they have some amazing creative worlds with mine crap education addition they do workshops, they do stuff with coding office three, Sixty Five. There's problem based learning lessons there but a lot of the minecraft worlds that are there are just. I mean. I'm looking at these pictures I mean they got full on pirate ships. Goodness. And just I, mean, there's just so many things that you can just go in and download you know the packs and and just kind of hang out and see what they have. But yeah, the world's are just this is I don't even is this. immersive. Minds. Dot Com. That's our website of the week. Well, that's cool stuff. Hopefully, John in Sean. We'll be back with US next week. We'll be back with more of Tech Talk Radio in the meantime. Thank you for joining. US appreciate that I'm Andy Taylor. And I'm Justin, find us on twitter at talk radio have yourselves a great week.

Merry Debate-mas with a Dash of Joe-mentum

"A chair tax on tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy. Well here we are beautiful southern California both in the same place in the middle of the Damn night because we you're thinner than I thought I. It's IT'S THE DIM light here on the axelrod command bunker near CNN. Where you were part? The team I was over at MSNBC trashing your coverage and now here we both are to talk about the great the amazing Last debate of the year. Yeah what do you. I actually thought it was the best debate. A lot of ways I agree I mean first of all. There's I think we've now proven the fact that seven on a stage is better than twelve absolutely And you know it actually. There was some room to breathe there and everybody everybody got time and actually think everybody probably got something out of it. the most Probably is Joe Biden. Totally agree had his best. He saved his best debate for the last debate of the year and just in time when he could use that spark he he's been durable. We've talked about that but I thought if we if we either see more this Biden going forward where he was crisp on it or we'd had more this Biden before he'd be in stronger situation so we're see we'd be back to stumbled. The question is whether he has found his groove or weather he's in and out and we don't know but I'll tell you it wasn't just the fact that he was crisp and he Seemed a comfortable up there but Tony You know he's seeing he was good That the answer on why you know we needed consensus was probably his best moment Not just in the debate. Maybe there's best moment of the campaign pain. Let's listen to that. I refuse to accept the notion as summer this stage do that. We can never never get to a place where we have cooperation again. Yeah if that's the case where dead as a country we need to be able to reach consensus if anyone has reason to be angry with the Republicans and not want to cooperate. It's me the way they've attacked me my son and my family I have no no no love but the fact is we have to. We have to be able to get things done on. And when we can't convince them we go out and beat them like we did in the two thousand eighteen election in red states and purpose it just the way he referred we're to You know he was a great way to get into the debate. The fact that trump basically it's being impeached for China China Slime Biden Right. And you know I think everybody can do the calculation well if trump would went to these lengths to try and stop Biden so that was just a side benefit of this yet but he finally cash that chip. Yeah you know that Spring has been wound up for a while and you could just tell. The audience lit up that they they WANNA see him say that so. Yeah I thought he had by. We should say just as guys who do this stuff or have done. This stuff was a totally call play. He knew he wanted to do that. I knew that it would come up. I mean it was very elegantly. He was loaded which meant is taking his debate. Prep seriously which was the case at the beginning. It's just wasn't absorbing right right. Yeah that's half the key is you know is not. It's not giving them the materials getting them to believe the material so they can go out and sell it and I also thought he had a vibe of confidence since that. We really haven't seen before from Biden. You slow down a little bit. Yes he he was kind of what what in the world of actors he was present in the scene yet kind of feeling feeling it rather than in his own. You look like you belong in the middle of the stage there which is the first time you'd say totally totally. It was a front runner. Yeah I would also give before bia be before we leave Biden. My theory here is that we're getting close to the the the actual voting forty forty six days now to the Iowa caucuses caucuses and I think one of the things the impeachment has done is it has raised the stakes on trump and picking the right person. And so on I I think all of these things may drive people to make a two two. They may may drive people to safety and Biden theoretically a safety but the thing that was nagging people was performance. Right talk like is he really safe or can he and he can he handle it. And that's why this was a big thing. I thought he had the safe brand on paper and then he's screwed it up for months by looking like the like drunk great. We're lender always almost fallen off the wire now. I've been short by the whole time. I like them and I think in general he'd be okay but my gut has been. He won't make it to the nomination and we're because what I saw tonight. I'm starting to think he could if he can sustain it and if you revert to mean normal for Biden he won't sustain it but we're seeing this will be the task of well you know. I think we'll know early early early in the campaign in the actual season because I think if Joe Biden finishes maybe we said this before but you know if he can man he is he. Is diabolically lowered expectations so dramatically here. That if he finishes close to I in Nyla. Yeah top. Even if he doesn't yeah I mean I think that he will be well on his way to being the nominee the the danger zone for him as if he drops the fourth and fifth or there and in New Hampshire's point out. You can't be Superman and You know not lifting a locomotive exactly. He's to the point. Reconsider five-second now and I what which wasn't true at the beginning right. But he'd better have a pretty solid New Hampshire And he can keep promising that he'll land in South Carolina. It's got it in his pocket. But I think that that very well could disintegrate. Loser is the story out of those two. But but he's got his expectation so low if there's a time for Biden to get good it's right now and step one was tonight. We're up to so let's talk about lanes and because in his lane you've got Pete Buddha judge right who has obviously had a good couple couple of months in American in the aggregate in the lead and you can tell by the fact that amy among others tried to rip his face off and Warren. 'cause that's your graduation. Waist President I think is out of the Yes. Yeah congratulations. Here's your blackjack. Yeah right we have a little little little present for you. I hope chamber over here but but he I thought he was obviously expecting. I think he was expecting it last time and he was clearly well prepared. He knew that the attack was coming on On the funding well. Let's listen to this Pete. Worn thing. The mayor just recently gently had a fundraiser. That was held in a wine cave full of crystals and served nine hundred dollar a bottle wine. Think about who comes to that. He had promised that every fundraiser he would do would be open door but this one was closed door we. We made the decision. Many years ago. That rich people in smoke-filled rooms would not pick the next president of the United States billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president of the United States according to Forbes magazine. I am the literally the only person on this stage. Who's not a millionaire or billionaire so this is important this? This is the problem with issuing purity tests. You cannot yourself pass if I pledge I never to be in the company of a progressive democratic donor. I couldn't be up here senator. Your net worth is one hundred times mine now. Supposing that you went in home feeling the holiday spirit. I know. This isn't likely but stay with me and decided to go onto Pete for America dotcom and give the maximum allowable by law two thousand thousand eight hundred dollars that pollute my campaign because it came from a wealthy person. No I would be glad to have that support. We need the support from everybody. Who is committed to to help us defeat Donald? He was ready for that. That's a dumb attack. Can she's got so many problems having transferred ten million dollars of the kind of money. She criticised the size and she didn't. Yeah she's on CNN afterwards you know she's not wrong about the pernicious a power of money in politics. There's no question about that. But you know she was on CNN after turn astor you for six years whereas money the same way did you feel corrupted. And she really didn't have a very good answer to that and she you know she she So so what made me aware but But then she moved on and yes so it seemed like a kind of now the only thing that you know. It's always a danger. You know this you. We've been involved in multi-candidate races before when you're plotting the stuff out when your concerns is if I it if I take a hard shot at this person does it benefit someone else. So closure had her a plan move to take advantage of of which you knew what's going to happen between Warren and Pete over this money thing and she. She came in and sees the high grab organ heads racing here to listen to this argument. I came here to make a case for progress and I have never even been to a wine cave. I've been to the wind cave in South Dakota Hoda which I suggest you go. So what is making a case for progress about that is what unites us up here instead of what divides US which is campaign finance reform. It far it totally came into the applause line. She got the applause as you were saying senior and then see the high ground back. Yeah eight minutes later. She let her internal hatred of Buddha. Judge out coming up with you know her. Apparently number one term of dislike. You're nothing but a local official you know at the Lincoln Conde- you'll even get the speech just announced for a minute there you saw flash amy. That's a little famous on Capitol Hill. You know if she'd been even tougher. Are you Buddhism. Felt like a former chief of staff but I thought she did better names change then warranted pizza. Let's listen to it. I made my case on immigration to what the mayor I said about Washington so I look at this a different way when we were in the last debate mayor you basically mocked the hundred years of experience on the stage. And what do I see on the stage. I see Elizabeth Warren starting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and Helping Twenty twenty nine million people. I see vice presidents work in getting two billion dollars for his cancer Moonshot I see Senator Sanders Work of working linked to get the veterans bill passed across the aisle. And I see what I've done which is to negotiate three farm bills and be someone that actually had major provisions is put in those bills. So well you can dismiss committee hearings. I think this experience works and I have not denigrated your experiences. A local official. I have been one and you should respect our experience. When you look at how you evaluate so I actually think? On Balance Allen's Clovis are had a very strong night. She clearly felt she did she came by the CNN booth that she was very Choose very upbeat About added. But you know the thing about her is she does use humor And she is colloquial in her speech except when she devolves into Senate talk when she does she did. The thing about this near career was a issue to you. Sit down any incumbent Senator and normally pitch. I got an idea for the first ad you might have to be the minutes long. Goddamn things I did for you. I passed the post office pain. You Bill Bill. One thirty seven hundred meaningless bills I and you tell those idiots I passed one of them then they have to vote for me. You know they all have that psychological baggage that GonNa Unload and we got a little of that for me but I agree. It was one of her best debates at exactly exactly the time she needs it yeah. She's actually moving up if you look at the polling steadily moving up in Iowa and in New Hampshire and We did ask her because does she like the other. Senators are going to be held hostage right the trial whenever comes. We'll get to impeachment in a in a bit and she acknowledged it was a problem said she. She was his headed off for twenty seven event tour of Iowa and then on to New Hampshire. So she's trying to cram as much in and I imagine the others will as well but she she she could gain from this she could wiping so she also she had one thought bubble that Pete and maybe Biden had a little won and worn. Didn't have which is GONNA make payroll on February first because I'm sure her cash situation is more dire than there's a debate like this. This jumpstart said they said that they said I got a text from somebody in her campaign who said they had a really big night. So Pete I thought you know he quitted himself very well for the guy who is in the barrel though. I thought he was a little bloodless with this. There are two tests for him. The first versus Gravitas test is he equipped to be president of the United States and despite what Colobus said he clearly seems like a guy who can handle the material he seems like a guy who is smart enough thoughtful enough to do the job his so the he passed the Gravitas test. The humanity test is the other one in on that and that is that is hard. You can't look like a kind of a like a a walking. Sat or whatever that is his base. People were a perfect sat. That's the core. It's hard to get a majority of that way. No no I agree. He is a little robotic. He's a little bit you know. Looks like curls up at night with a good accounting textbook and he's got a he's got to let his hair down on that stuff a little bit and I wanted to see even a little more flash a righteous anger tonight. I'll also do the cheap cheap meaningless attack because last time I was a little tough on amy because her hair got caught in the wind currents and everything and it was distracting. This time I thought Pete at least on my television at a little bit on the Nixon Shadow going on which I've seen before so amy shellac things down and got that under general but Pete was bad. Make this way. Everybody's attacking from being too young. Maybe WanNa show he could grow. Beer could be could be could But I I actually my my sense this is that he did not hurt himself tonight. I agree I think broke even not forward not back in fact I think they all at this point. They've all gotten better. So they all Kinda GonNa help themselves. But I think amy overperform norm and I think Biden really did. Yeah so okay. So that's that's that lane and we'll see what happens because if amy moves up is that Buddha judges expenses that Biden's expense. It's it's really not clear. We'll see over time but on the other side of the equation Elizabeth. Warren who had been I mean. How many times have we extol her and her campaign? You know over the course of the first nine months of this but she stumbled on Medicare for all a couple of debates ago she. It hasn't really recovered from that. And you know I thought she had a perfectly okay performance. Her message is the same as her message. Always is it's very consistent but for that exchange with the Buddha judge which I think she did not do well and again dumb to do it because she has glass on that issue so strategically in addition to being process. I says no no. Nobody cares about impeachment. Nobody cares about FCC rigs. I asked the class warfare gets gets so harsh that if you I wanNA hold the suburbanites against trump ought to be careful with that and she. She's member we used to say about. PD needed gearshift. About three months ago. They got on television. They he kind of did it. Yeah she needs a bit of gearshift. We've heard the the big evil companies. We've kind of heard her riff and it's starting to feel a little stale. It's a little scarier. Now with the Medicare for all that she's trying to back off but it's tricky. Because I think Bernie could come flying to raise Bernie he he is. I've said it before. He's the billy Joel of democratic politics. You know you're gonNA Joel Online too. And he's pissed you you go and you hear his greatest hits from the seventies eighties nineties. Two thousand two thousand ten's and everybody knows the words and everybody sings along but he delivers a very consistent. Rendition condition it never changes and there's an authenticity to it. Yeah I mean it's a grizzled authenticity and you know he showed a little. Humor has lightened up. Since the the cardiac thing yeah. I'm still hoping since Christmas. Carter the Big Pharma companies that made the stand but putting that aside I kinda like this Bernie more I I mean I hate the ideology. The class warfare I. I was reading for the aspirin during this debate. I hate all that crap. But he's just he's a smiles. He laughs a little well and there was a closure said something leeann he said wait. I've been attacked noon. Did I must speak. She wounds me for words but But this this is a problem for Warren. Because her theory the cases that she would consolidate the left and she can't get Bernie in her rear view mirror are and are not going after them too. They have this well. But there's because I think there's a real fear that if you do go after him then you'll drive his people way irrevocably but but at some point somebody you know. Somebody's GonNa have to blink here and it didn't happen tonight but I just don't see how you certainly Bernie. But how Elizabeth Warren becomes the nominee with him. Yeah where he is where he is an any new hazy strengthening strength and again strengthen numbers Sir alright so this is problematical so I think we have to. Let's do a Kudo for Andrew. Yes that's where I was going. Yeah you know the time in the Yang Yang Man I I I really. I really appreciate the Guy I'll tell you. I do my little grid because again. I'm a conservative. So there's auction of class. Warfare just gives me a Migraine when I score them. I like because I like smart people and I think his motives are great. But when I look at the answers I like gangs answers the best just personally not as a matter of craven politics Do I think he's going to be nominated. No but there is a lot. That's right with him which stands up nicely against what's wrong with politics you know. He's a very honest and You understands the big picture stuff that first of all on on economics I appreciate that he's actually talking about these twenty-first-century treat challenges you know. And he's not having debates from the nineteen nineties. I know there's a debate about it from the left but this these issues of automation are challenging. Alan Djing and and no one's he's the only one who has really been talking about it. Bundy stuff is totally true. Because the quality of your. Ai is not on many bright guys you got it. Mit How much data the computer can swim through to get smarter. And because the Chinese don't have privacy laws and more people and they're capturing everything there. Swimming Pool is much bigger than ours. which will give them an advantage in the technology? That's going to mean a lot to help people live in the future and he's totally on that and I don't think the others even get it and he said you know. He talks a lot about his fluency and technology. Anything sets a prerequisite but he also has great humanity. And I'm partial to him because we both with have special needs kids. He didn't talk as much about it tonight but he talked enough about it that when he was asked that it was meaningful and he talked up. Not just about you know others talked about making sure that people with special needs get treated fairly in the market and his son and he said it's more than that it's it's it's that they're worth as human beings. It is recognized about clarity I am bit is now. I will say also unlike so-called front runner surge candidate Joe Joe Biden. He's had the guts to do the X.. FILES POPULAR PODCAST. Joe You're the unplugging for you know. I asked one who hasn't done it. So now you're breaking up. Young has done nothing but move up since he clearly the key people think it was the key But you know it'll be interesting to see he's not going to be the nominee but If there were a democratic president it would be shocking to me if he weren't in the administration in some significant place. Probably I mean maybe his chief technology officer maybe as head of the N. E. C.. Maybe as Commerce Secretary but I think Andrew Yang has has created a lot of fans. You could rebuild the Commerce Department firm into commerce intact or something and rebuild it for a guy like that. Now it'd be in the national interest by the way the funny sound you hear as we shatter the rules of radio decorum because it's late. We have it hungry man. We have some food here. I'm Ito it's it's not only hacks on tap it's hacks on the hats on Russia. Exxon rolls in butter. Yeah we have access bread here hacks on Hummus. So you're going to hear all kinds of smacking and chomping here but authenticity which it is. Yeah you don't want the Internet Song. Exactly actly so star. Who Cares I mean he? He's learned a few paragraphs now but sign later. He came by to and you know he was talking about his message but he he knows he can go toe to toe with trump on the economy. I told me and I used to think you were rich. Guy And then this Guy Mike Bloomberg came along and now you're middle class and and he he said well until Bloomberg accepts a wealth tax I don't think he can be the Democratic nominee. Think he's making a pretty big and probably a solid bet that Bloomberg's not going to endorse the wealth task. I would think that and I say good for Bloomberg You know one of the problems with this. You're right God. But he's got fifty six billion dollars and you know. How's he going to sneak by if he has to give two percent of it away another thing just as a wingnut drove me crazy about Warren? I think the thing you know the that wealth taxes popular by the way. I'm sure it is. Yeah no no since since Lenin. It's always had its appeal but her about two pennies is not to pennies two percent. Don't oh I'm GONNA hit billionaires for two pennies. It's just I think the next thing of Warren on weaknesses. Maybe I'm just grinding my Conservative and you're you're probably you're just pissed because you're California tax bill believe me. Don't get me. They hit me for retroactive sales tax for four eight years. It's unbelievable but I think the next thing coming at Warren is going to be veracity because some of her stuff is a little clever by half. It's a little demagogic phony attack on you know you're raising money just like I used to do until fourteen months ago. The two pennies. No let's call it two percent so it was a fifty million dollar Fortune Orjan. You're going to pull a million bucks out of it. Let's let's use real numbers here. I don't know it is it's a cheat and I think her her flip from you know she used to would be for charter. Schools are just a lot of that wiggling around and I think that veracity stuff could be your next weakness if she starts winning and becomes no see the one thing I would tell are you is she does have a really great organization in Iowa You know I I just don't know what's going to happen here This can be a really interesting. You know it's going to be distorted. A little by the trial in the absence of some of these senators from Wisconsin from Iowa and from two and Buddha judge and Andrea hang everyone. Who can everyone who can be there but but she does have a good organization and That that's meaningful in caucus and so I certainly wouldn't count her out of that. She does have to figure out this Bernie thing. Who's WHO's WHO's WHO's Nova no and you know again? Her left flank as she tries to escape. Then news is vulnerable Bernie and Bernie has money if Bernie wants to hurt you. You know which is not his inclination. I think Bernie's campaign manager in effect and he has his way of doing things but he has dollars which means he can hang around. He's hard to kind of choke how he's not going anywhere. Yeah but she you know when she was on with US later. We asked Or I asked you know about Buddha judges point which is Rangan Donald Trump. You can't disarm you know he's going to have more money beat scored with that and her answer was no you do with grass roots. And and I'll tell you something if Elizabeth Warren and we've talked about this before it she'd been running bio ads in Iowa for the last three months she'd be in a stronger position at right. Now money money you know. There's no doubt about the pernicious nature of some of the money in politics but money is useful if you use it well yes. It's a platform for speech. Each and again her thing about People Power and I'm going to get to a million self niece's all very cute. I mean I like horses but I'd rather have tanks and you know if you have have a good M- money's an amplifier and if it's a good message get the money so I'm on Pete side of that equation. Here's the right thing and you know her it just so we covered everybody right. Yeah I think we've been through. All of Williamson is flying by our thirteenth floor window here. I think we can we. We can't let her go. Land that deal So so what do you make of the fact that trump's approval rating has actually gone up a point or two since this whole impeachment thing began. Yeah I'm dubious of the whole national poll game from outlet the outlet with different methodologies. Get any upholster drunk to tell you how hard it is to do now because you can't get you know basically maybe they sobered up. Well maybe but it's just very hard to get a sample frame so I don't really care you know how the Mars three or four so the bouncing around fundamentally trump's got his pile of vote the no trump is another pile of vote. The no trump pilot vote. Most of the time is a bit bigger. And it's locked in and I think you know the the no trump pile CBS's impeachment thing as a righteous cause and I'm with them Monday. I'm glad the Democrats did I think it was constitutional duty and you know. Two dozen of them showed a little courage on politically the non trump thing. Oh more noise in Washington and just tribally dug in and they got enough air cover from their rhetoric. I do think net net. It's bad for trump because trump's the guy who has to grow as pot if the two armies go at it then non trump armies bigger in almost all the data. It has been for a long time so the question is will the DEM's nominate somebody or do some things that let's trump scare ear the Republican and independent wealthier suburbs back his way and get in business and Kenny US race. Whatever other vile tactics he has to to keep his super performing you know Blue Collar Non College educated folks with them and so you listen to the debate? Yeah Yeah did you. Listen to the Summaries I listened to most of it I didn't hear it did us to the end when SCALISE was speaking and Kevin McCarthy and scalise said you know they they don't they hate Donald Trump and they hate the sixty three million you you essentially. Yeah which the thing that. I found unbelievable about that was was. Here's a guy who got shot tragically by some lunatic. Wingnut who took all of this rhetoric seriously and you would thank that he would have some sensitivity to Staying away from that kind of incendiary horrify. The guardrails are gone. And that's the tragedy McCarthy you know he jumped on there and did all the same kind of inflammatory stuff you know they call us deplorables they just just playing hitting all those no no. It's against trump. Came up with the next the next day you know. Don't kid yourself. They're not going after me. They're going after you you know. That's I think that is. That's a lot of their campaign. Yeah the problem though and this is why I think impeachment will not the fulcrum issue ever is a big net minus for trump is that it gets in the way of him moving the needle forward which he has to do now if trump again tedious. Obviously I'm sorry. And he let McConnell so he could get rid of this whole thing politically but he can't do that he's trump and this is making him. Worse is so yeah they can double double down and own the Republican primary. They can own their call to sack. It's never gonNA move. But unless the Democrats really nominate a candidate trump can work with which is a huge possibility This thing is putting trump in a corner and all the lies and all the bullshit. Sure the ruling party doesn't split and doesn't sink him but uh-huh trump's not moving the needle for trump. He's locked in with this defense strategy. So net net I think Democrat intensity if they really shut this thing down in the Senate is going to go through the moon and the no trump is bigger. And it'll be just going. Here's what I think. I think that impeachment is going to be a vague memory by November that they'll there's going to be dozens of intervening events and that it will be part of the fabric and it will hurt hert trump in this way I do believe at the end of the day. The cost of trump. Just the chaos. The you know the noise is just ah you know and it is a It's only GonNa get worse as we get closer and he's getting worse because he's not handling this. Well the the one person appeasements as ms Roy affecting is this lunatic we have in the White House. You know what was interesting was his rally in Battle Creek which is You know a part of Michigan where he's going to be competing Peter. Is You know you know Michigan well. Everybody focused on the horrific thing he said about John Dingell looking up but from implying the John Ending was in hell a guy who's well you know longest serving member of Congress World War Two veteran. Yeah the absolute. This doesn't really play in West Michigan so much but the absolute loot guardian hero of the US auto industry. Yeah Yeah and his His father's served in Congress before he died. So but as the seat. It's it's been you know. Yeah it's the dingle name is a big name there. But it wasn't isn't the thing that interest me the most that I don't think got enough. Attention was the essence of what he was saying. What he was complaining about was that he you know that that he had allowed the flag to be lowered? Ron John Dingle died in here. According to the centers that one and basically what he was complaining learning about was I did these nice things for John Dingell and she's still voted for impeach because he has no filter to understand the role of a president versus the sleazy parking lot. Land deal or something and so he thinks because he did he's like the boy scout wants a medal for telling the truth. Yes Lamar Alexander. Line that I've always liked. So trump thinks he's owed special attention for doing the basic minimum decent thing as president when a significant congressman dies. And how dare. She criticised him because he owns her now for doing what he's he's expected to do. which is half flags and all that shows what a psychopathic is yeah well as you say the fully transactional nature of it was you know? I tweeted that You could almost hear him say sure. Mrs. Dingell out take care of that lowering of the flag thing. But I need you to do me a favor. Though you know. It's the same conversation you had with the Ukrainians. He thinks. Everything's negotiable right. Everything gotta be something for him and everything. Yeah there's there's no good deed everything is all right. I did that for you now. Here do some corruption which is why. I'm glad they impeached him. Because he's guilty as hell. Yeah but I I will say this. Yes I I think that when it comes down to that handful of states this is going to be a race. Ace you know and You know I I know you're you're blind hatred for the guy's such that you have to suspend your normally normally incisive analytical mind. No I can see it if the Democrats decide to hold things about turn out in San Francisco and it's a woke off off. Trump can beat them. I think even even Elizabeth Warren who I think is very risky their scenario where she could be trump. It could go either way. I think the odds though and you know where you're at fifty I'm at thirty. Five are greater that he's defeated than reelected because he's the President People Wanna fire but it's totally possible in the Industrial Midwest where the Democrats answer having more and more cultural problems connecting to voters because the center the cultural grabbed the Democratic Party now is the coastal areas particularly in New York and California and so their incentives are to get the votes. They don't need rather than get a little discomfort to go get the votes they do need. They don't break that equation. Yeah I'm with you. He could. Actually we do. Yeah and this goes to the fundamental argument Within the Democratic Party about whether you win by maximizing your base or whether you need to do a combination of organizing your base but also a building a bridge that will allow a few of his people to walk across cross And there's a really heated debate about that. I'm of I'm of the mind that given the electoral college and the nature of some of these states like Wisconsin in particular that That bridge is important. So important for governing that's why the Biden answer was so important tonight but we will we'll Z.. Yeah it's GonNa I think there's one last. Big One is the nature of the news business that this impeachment thing is going to be kind of over covered. I mean it's legitimately historic. I think that yeah the cable guys. Every day is the HINDENBURG. You know it's the nature of that business so we're going to go bananas over this. TV Show in the Senate and that will not happy a small thing because it's quite possible. The bloody shirt argument. Roy Go to the Democrats if Mitch who is very smart and probably Wiley enough to avoid this. But totally shuts that's everything down and creates like a Super Merrick Garland on steroids issue. Well that will that be the Tober talk in Mount Clemens Michigan but it'll give energy energy more to them than the will and for that reason I think he you know he does have to be mindful of the gardeners the college the mkx Sally's sallies. Yeah and the Romney's perhaps your old client Lamar Alexander Romney's an old client of yours too. Yep I mean they're we're not gonNA want this to seem like a a a rig deal and so I don't think that a rush to judgment here is going to play with him so I'm sure McConnell is calculating all of that and he wants to give them the maximum chance to win yeah he liked to essential thing to let the steam out of the boiler but trump trump would never allow. That's another trump weakness. He won't let the smart. I think he's really rude. Republicans because just let them say you know what he did was wrong But it wasn't impeachable. We're going to have an election And I think that would be really really helpful for a lot of these guys Galveston. They they would like that. Oh totally you know. But he he's simply won't he. He wants to a trial where they call the Democrats traders and Sean Hannity Hannity is to star. Witness is a sandbox to trump. And there's behind the scenes. There's tremendous tension. I'd like to see Hannity under oath. Oh that would be. That would be ah but he you know the truth is i. I don't know but I doubt home a little bit years ago and I remember came up to me at a thing and we had last chance it was perfectly nice is but I looked down. I interested I had was a radio station. I thought he's a classic radio. Hack you know he could be doing the weather. He could be doing any trick onto this thing. which do his own industry? And you know moral flexibility. He's turned into a big. You know financially lucrative empire for well he's just prancing in you guys are the president of the United. Well I'm sure he's turned in it. It's kind of lonesome. Rhodes thing from the face in a crowd that great movie which I highly recommend political nerds. Go See your whole different. Andy Griffith Andy Griffith Young. Walter Matthau is the fiery gravy but anyway the point is I think Hannity was about the dollars and the dollars came beyond his wildest wildest dreams and now he's you know living that life We but we digress. We do which is often our way but what we should. We should. What what we should what we should do is wish everybody? A Happy Hannukah a merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We're going to take next week off. yeah I think we are the holidays. I'm going to be in the our skiing as usual. No no I'll be by you know famous surfboard in Hawaii where you don't get hurt you're gonna you're gonNA. Are you tough enough to Christmas in Chicago Arca. No okay copy down in Arizona.

Thanks for telling a friend we love that about you Gina Grad Right. Whether you tired out? I. had. Some thoughts. I was watching TV but TV commercials. The other night. And I started realizing. I'm seeing way too many commercials that have to do with like extracting fluids and doing things in your body now. All explain. I've seen commercials. There's an ear one where you're like shooting and stuff in your ear and you're pulling hard and wax out of your. fracking your ear drilling. Ear fracking that's right with good Biden and office. So we can. Hear fracking. So it's like there's the ear frac one. Then there's all the C. PAP ones. There's a c-pap cleaner and the CPAP whatever and you go a dirty C. PAP machine and you're you're you're eating dinner like your mind just goes to this weird kind of moss filled to that's coming from William Shatner's mouth you know. So shatner's doing like a C. Pap thing then asserted a wrote a few of them down to try to think of them. I started also seeing their say There's another knows flush one. There's a system where you put it on your nose and like flushes in it shows the happy woman using it but it's still kind of disgusting. It's like it's putting the warm water in your nose and circling it through your circulating it through your sinuses, pulling it out even if relief as achieve still unpleasant. Yeah, and then I saw then there's another one is their tagline. The other one is a woman's product for nighttime incontinence. Was that an issue it is at a certain age and you got along down to Oregon Yeah. They have this tube and one end of it. The business end of the tube is something one puts in yeah. And then. Next to you is sort of a next to next to the nightstand is sorta thermos Cooler. With a vacuum pump on it yeah. We're what is that thing call Mexican find that thing it is now I don't know if a catheter technically has to go up your your e Thura. External Catheters at least for men that are basically like condoms that you put on with a hose imagine external cap has got a little wet dry vacuum to it. That's kind of what this is for the for the ladies. And I've been noticing all these weird products that are either sucking stuff out of you or putting stuff back into you and. I don't like it. I'm not a fan I. It's. Intrusive. If you guys these, they run during the news a lot box, run some and CNN. Yes. That's when I started to I started to realize that cable news their demo has to beat old because. Fox News, I always knew was an old them Oh, but I've been watching a lot of CNN and they're running the same spot. I think I think the kids are all online now. Yeah. I can't imagine the demos are that different like you said, real. Online or MSNBC is. I watch I knew you were GONNA say CNN and Fox 'cause I watch these every night with closed captioning in the news booth and the one thing the only commercial that doesn't necessarily physically suck something out of your put something in you but spiritually does the Bible App they both have the Bible. Yeah there's a lot of those. You know you're you're you're watching it like it's a good demo when they're talking about getting out of a timeshare. Come first world problem versus you can lease a television set that means you're you're in a different demo. But yeah, I'm trying to think there's the ear one there's the knows one there's the visine one and there's the C. PAP one, which is the gift that keeps giving because that's the CPAP machine that's one commercial, and then the other one is the one that cleans all all the CPAP machine You know they call it when they re when they cleaned the sewer system like New York System when they put a big scrubbing bubble in there like they put a thing in there, they put it in there and it launches down that the system that to clean it up. A things called a pig. Oh, I don't know I. Don't know why no that. All right. You know what they call the sewer truck that. The septic tank that comes to clean up the like Porta potty vans. Oh. Yeah. Honey Wagon, the honeywell you know. Yeah. You knew that I always like the honey wagon when it would show up to the job site. Because when the honey wagon would show up to my construction site. It had nothing to do with cleaning out of the PORTA Potty, but I would think to myself. There's a guy with a worse job than mine. And it actually made me feel good for about five minutes and then I also always had this fantasy that. By the way ladies if you're listening in your dating, the guy who drives the honey wagon, don't ever cross him. You don't ever cross that guy that guy it's like it's like chick the you don't get into a fight. If you're married to a COP, you know the guy's got a gun on him like don't cross the honey wagon guy because I just pictured if that guy, he caught you cheating. or or or anything else that guy could literally just back that honey wagon up to your vehicle, open the Sunroof, put the hose in and when he was done, he could trowel off the top and put his initials in it with a stick. You'd wish for a horse head in your bed was damaged I called given the business. Business honey honey not give the business to the honey wagon guy. The new German word is for you feeling better that you're not the honey wagon, guy. Oh He's afraid. or I'd say, sorry, stepped on a day to go is afraid. Shies affreux. Yes so that guy's got a worse job than all of us, which is, which is good. Also I imagine. Like I said I you know I think a lot of people thought there was some sort of. Way that this guy would like I, think they thought of it like it was refueling mid air where like you'd back up in heaven airlock or something it is not the guy got out with boots. He had a long hose and he dropped the hose right into the business end of the toilet like that was there wasn't some Air Lock or vapor lock in the back that he hooked it onto. He went right into the right into it. That's it. It came out the same way it went in. Did it ever like a garden hose gets unhooked and it just starts flailing around the that ever happened to that guy? No but. I used to do a bit a very popular monologue. I did was a guy who drove one of those honey wagons and he was picking up his college age nephew for his summer job to go out with him and my character was in love with the job and my but he was grossing out his college age nephew who was gonNA spend a summer doing this and and I was just getting into detail about a lot of stuff I found in there a lot of valuable stuff over the years I got this wallet out of the out of the hopper you know because I have a sieve. Collect. The big stuff and he was like grossing out like now you turn on that vacuum pump your two hundred and forty PSI if that hoses Kink, you got about five seconds then you'd better do a shoulder roll because I tell you that hose blue couple years back I got a cigarette but putting me like it was norplant. Gone Oh God and I was explaining them like the fast paced lucrative world of driving the. I've forgot all about the bit but the monologue was the conceit was the guy was a veteran driver of the honey wagon. He thought it was a cool job because all the free stuff you got that fell into the toilet. And his college you know it's one thousand, nine, hundred home from College Lily White. Sort of white collar kid who was you know premed was absolutely disgusted by this guy's lifestyle Let's see. Brett from San. Diego's got a question then. So does Robert is well Let me talk to Brett Brat. Corolla. been. Okay. I'm on the job site sitting on my lunch pill eating my sandwich as we speak call an Indie guys watching the Honeywell Guyq out the PORTA potty for. You hundred yards. Right now. I'm not lying. Wow. What job? What kind of construction you? On businessman I'm an electrical contractor. Building. Real big cabin out here in eastern kind of San Diego area pound called Julian. Like a luxury, a luxury cabin. Customs I do mainly custom homes owned your San Diego California and gas company about five years ago. So it's In pretty well, except you I'm still sitting on a lunch pill smelling the. I don't know what you would call that the. Chit debris or the Shit Air that comes with the. Weaponized dookie. Hey. Brian, let me let's be honest. Can I talk about you electrocutions first second? Can you guys pick up your shit yet when you show up to do your job, you pull out the socket you pull out the switch got little cardboard box with the cellophane on it you pull it out and you drop it at your feet. Then later on, you pull the wires out, he's snip the wires in you strip the wires and that'll ever goes on the floor and then you walk away I've never worker fucking electricity didn't think he was fucking wasn't a Prima Donna couldn't pick up his own shit. You'd always know when the electricity was there because all the shit they use just Lancet their feet. They literally don't throw anything away everything every package everything everything comes in every wire they snip anything just every zip tie they use when they snipped them off boom let gravity take take over and let some goober come in here and clean up after him because I am the vaunted electrician my poop does not stink even even I was even complemented by the guy drives the honey wagon saying you know what most? Of the most of the Contractors Shit stinks not years, your electricity maverick. Why are you just leaving your mass inside the house? Why are you even using the Porta Potty? Why don't you just shit wherever you what you're an electrician you gotta go to the bathroom why walk across the yard why not just take a dump inside the house where you drop all your boxes and your snippets in your stripped wire remnants Is this true Brett. Hold on I'm GonNa Talk to my apprentice say. Yes, it is to man. That yeah. Good one been well, it's the. Truth. Oh you're I I heard you read about that on the. On the house couple of weeks ago is cracking me up man I. Anyone who's been on a job site? No that's what the electricity do and I think there's an element of. Electricity scary. And it can really hurt you. And so you have this element of like we kind of need these guys and I don't WanNa, fuck with them and I don't want to Piss them off. Dry Waller's don't do that. Even plumbers don't. Yes And the problem I had with your fingers is you fucking guys when we come to do our can lights and Shit you love to leave your I. Don't know your fire blocking scab to buy four. It shits everywhere. I don't know if you did that back when you were framing but. Of Win Win Situation Okay well, I'M GONNA leave my shit everywhere. 'cause you made me break my neck almost you know what I'm doing the rest in so Wearing, you know I did the one time I hung drywall not the one time but. One time I got high on the job site. And getting high in the job sites no good. Because time slows down and you're super miserable and all you WanNa do is go home but I got high on this job site in meeting. This guy hung drywall in a small office in a room house were remodeling and silver like. and. We hung that lid we hung drywall pardon the PUN, the lead, the roof, the ceiling we hung that we went over every can light in that place we just hung and then the electricity came in like. Half are lays. Where's my can lights I don't know where the can lies go. Yeah. I guess kind of went over and then he was taking his. Keyhole saw, which is the scariest knife ever and he was like poking it through the drywall trying to hit his metal cans. So I guess I owe the Electricity of this country and apology bread I didn't sorry for dry walling over your hands and I'm sorry for Tirade. They. Often. Though. So good. All right. Go ahead. Ask Your question. Yesterday when? We. Have A. Guy Who broke. and. I'm thirty two had my business for about five years and. I don't know I've just kind of wanted to get your take I'm running more. It seems like in today's. You know. I don't know society if you will I'm not going into more more of these people that are like that he. At one point. You know saying something like on lines of you wanted him to get covert or some crap like that and Suave knows you know what are we going to do with these people? I'm seeing more and more of this behavior. You know nowadays and Yeah. Wanted to get your take on it. Well there's a lot of narcissism and that's why when people go you what about me what about how this affects me? You know it's all sort of comes back to me can hear it when they're complaining you know they go they start off with you and then they go urine astle and then they go. I have a niece with down syndrome and I have a friend I in A. Lot. A lot of that I don't know how we're going to avoid it because it's built into everybody something you try to work out of them as children and it's also something that probably religion used to keep in check a lot. But religion is kind of gone the way the Dodo and we stop we start turning kids and as you know, we have Wow lovesey who's telling everyone that they're they're winner and there's no one else like them and it's going to be more that. The good news is it's hard for those people to succeed because our world requires partnerships, collaboration sort of being of service to other people and those people who are very much that way are GonNa have a difficult time. Having a lot of success, you're going to have to deal with a lot of those people, but you're not going to have to deal professionally with a lot of those people because the professionals when they get into me me me, they're not that professional anymore, their business doesn't doesn't last. You think someone like Brian Grazer you know when you talk to guys I got there like how can I be of service to this person? How can I help this person achieve what this person wants wants to do so Yeah there's going to be more of those people Brett, but the more you're not that way probably the more business you'll have that's what I would assume. Are you holding Brian Greg contrast serving to the military veterans injured Netanyahu called in? Yes. I am are showing that Shit's on disabled military veterans know is that what you think I'm doing no, but his me. Me Me. was was I agree with you in principle but his example was relevant to the discussion. Yesterday's like I have this and thus it was the covid talk talk like I don't know if that's indicative of fucking veteran for God's sake how he's indicative of most people his age, our kids these days well, what he's been off the air for fucking ten years. All right. Sorry. Can we move on? We'll just as I don't know if I'm splitting the difference but my thought was I would imagine why people say okay. But here's my situation. Of course, it sounds narcissistic but I don't I don't think I don't think that's the goal I think the goal is to humanize numbers. So when you say something that makes sense like I'm you know we have to be okay with this amount of the population you know this number, a parish hangar was getting sick or whatever. That's that's numbers I think what people are doing is going okay but. Let's just make sure were considering the human behind it and considering that and the numbers don't change the numbers don't change. You know what I mean. I don't think people coming at it as a in a bitchy way I think they just want to put a face to the number, well in defensive Brett and me and and whoever else was thinking about this we're talking about it. no. Obviously, you're not gonNA attack veterans I. Think what he was saying globally although he was using this veteran is an example of me me me like who's calling in and saying what about me like that veteran was saying what about me and I was looking at globally not like as A. Veteran veterans in wheelchairs or? Handicapped People in general. I'm saying there is a bigger me. There's a what about me question that's prevalent that the veteran was unfortunately uses example of what about me but there is a much larger. What about me group out there and you know that changes society you got to kind of deal with that. You see it politically you know you see it in policy. You see you know I believe the. Reason the school, the schools are all closed in La's because of a what about me mentality versus a global good mentality o I. Understand I do agree with you in principle I I saw I overreacted Brett. Thank you for calling the show. I just found it in very poor. Taste us like you said the veteran who called in the disabled veteran who has proxy for this other Movement I just found that distasteful. Yeah I just thought it was quite ridiculous. He literally I I just got done listen to this podcast an hour and a half ago when my eba, the knee, literally one point sent verbatim like you know you always you want media have grown virus or something along the lines. Ridiculous but thanks guys, I, chuck I also chuck those guys up a little bit to the guys at the Santa Monica City Council meeting with a lot of buttons who stand up like it doesn't mean they're not pages of doesn't mean they're not veterans doesn't mean they didn't serve the country doesn't mean they don't deserve respect but there's an element of that that that guy particularly had I think we can. All agree on that Robert Fifty from Virginia. Hey What's going on Hi Guy? How. Do you? So I just discovered your podcast awhile dot com known of YOU FOR YEARS And It's really interesting. I enjoy it because I was born in nineteen sixty. So I grew up and the same time period you grew up in. So I get all the things when you talk about different things from that time period. So That's enjoyable. I won't to compliment you called on a second. I don't know why. But there's a bit that Andy Griffith. Comedy stand standup bit. Football What you guys ever hear that bit is it as good as? Marlins because that's that's the high water mark Oh. That's right. Playing baseball and football at George. Carlin's is brilliant. This is more of a story tellers version of it, but it's it's a bit that somehow Robert. Fifty Robert should be sixty. Reminding Sixty, right reminded me. Of From Virginia. So what were you going to say Robert Sixty from Virginia Oh? Yeah. So lump to compliment you job you did it dissapoint toes live at the foliage I? Oh Yeah. I was in I was in Wisconsin I was in Kenosha Wisconsin three weeks ago people sort of forget snap. Snap on. Snap snap tool companies in Kenosha, Wisconsin? Yes. You know I liked you'll list of things. That sales. Yeah. Thank you Robert. A little sleep-deprived i. don't have a great memory of it. So on hold on you have Andy Griffith explaining his standup at explaining football Andy Griffith. One of these guys. Sort like the professor from. Gilligan's island wildly attractive never really got their do. Striking good looking fella tall drink a water but he's kind of Andy Griffith in your mind. Yeah. And by the time matlock rolled around he was shit Outta luck right like I'm wondering. I'm wondering what if what would it do? You know how? Like Robert De Niro's now kind of become a dude instead of Robert Deniro. Like what if Brad Pitt just just. Had, his own podcast and was popping up on everyone else's shows and stuff like that. Do you think it would cease to become Brad Pitt being brandman like do you think it would take a little like part of Brad Pitt is not really knowing a ton about him or not seeing you know constantly blabbing all the time about everything or even that mystery even that stuff where they go like Oh man I had a car Bunko on my ass and I had to have that thing lance. What came out of it Pu? I mean like. Maybe, it's best to be that Robert Fifty sixty go ahead. Okay. So you tweeted out of the day Abou- We must protect our kids and you got to fourteen year old twins. So I was wondering what you'll call it was I was thinking well without and think about this deal so. as be one, forty, five California lawmakers, Senate deal Monday to death because governor gather news some Democrats that would reduce penalties for adults who have all or anal sex would they willing minor child if they sex offenders within ten years of age of victim. Last, night the. California state legislative past few. That's be one, forty five, and it now goes to governor. Deaths I'm just wondering what your take. Was On that. My thing it's kind of tough with this stuff because. I've talked to mark arrogance about this which is. He there is sexual. Offenses that are a forty one year old had sex with a seven year old and you go. I mean that guy has got to be in jail for the rest of his life and then Mark Geragos has. That are registered sex offenders for like you're. On their lawn to close to a school, you know what I mean or the nineteen year old who had sex with a seventeen year old girlfriend but they've been together for five years or whatever it is. You know we talked about on this show before the Kimball on good on. Real. Sports movie and HBO The kid who was nineteen or whatever in high in the girlfriend was seventeen like you said, like I like to give to the judge to say, yeah that's maybe okay. That's not okay. Yeah. So it's like I kind of know it when I see it I, it seems weird to just go that guy is a registered sex offender the girlfriend that's fourteen months younger than him and the Guy who raped the van of special needs kids he's also a sex offender like. I don't need them I need some distinction I need some grey area and I it's difficult to sort of. Put in a bill that says, this covers this large group of people because it's so case by case for me. You have Andy Griffith Oh. Sorry. Yes. You're talking about that optics. Any law like eases sex offender rules is obviously automatically going to garner a huge wave of anti. Sentiment. feels. Kind of commonsense see I don't know about you guys but this this has been tweeted to me in. Dm To me multiple times in the past few days and it's like you know all Californians are pedophile. Democrats are pedophile. So people really talk about optics. It's not great. Well. We used to be a, we're parsing it out now because we used to be, it's bad optics for a politician to be. Light on crime or soft on crime, and we used to just go crime, and now we're going well if the poor black woman's been in prison for twelve years for dealing weed. then. The optics now are that's good politics to get that person out. Right. But if the person so low level drug offender, good optics for politicians right and left to try to get those people out of prison. So at least we're getting a little more specific with who being hard on and who were not. Yes. Speaking of being specific about who were you know targeting and whatnot I'm reading here maybe. mission. This only applies to minors between the ages of fourteen and seventeen. So. You can't have sex with a ten year old or something. That kind of stuff. I as a society goes I'm not interested in over policing that that world I would like a universal age of consent. That was just eighteen or sixteen or whatever. Why are you so interested in a universal? Not paying this camera down Max. Pat I will sue your ass you paying this camera down. Keep. going. Anyway. Like Never made sense to me that people twenty-one booze over here in eighteen for booze over there that that part on down. All right. We have andy talking about football. They would run at one another and kick one another and the one another down installed on one another and grander feet in another and I don't know what how, and just dispatched is one of them get hurt their told him off and run another. Well. They had done that as long as I set there. But pretty soon, this boy that's had said ticket please come up to me and he says friend you're going to have to leave because it is that you don't have a ticket. And I says, well, all right. And I got up and left and I don't know friends to this day what it was that there's doing down there but I have studied about it and I think that it some kind of a contest or they see which bunch full of them men can take that Pumpkin and run from one end of that cow pasture to the other without either get knocked down or step in some. Yeah. It's kind of a weird conceit. Kind of reminds me of WHO's on first in the sense that WHO's on first is a legendary bit but it doesn't make sense because it's like who's on first and I don't know playing second and I forgot to pay US playing third and there's nobody named that that and this is like it's nineteen fifty something and the concede is this guy's never heard of football. But he lives in himself. He's from the South and he lives in America. Yeah I mean he's A. God what would what would he be in the What what division would be over there? Not the pack but the what's Clemson? Those pro like the SEC SEC Right, and you need to create any traveled around and he. gave. The Gospel but. He'd have you have a car radio like you have a rate. You would know what College College football was has been big in this country since eighteen. Eighty one or something at that time it was much bigger than the NFL. And I'm not saying Hooper Bowl for ten years I'm not saying college versus pro I'm just saying. All the notion of football, Notre Dame and army vs navy, and those types of schools have been playing each other for at this point sixty. Since Andy Griffiths was born anyway find another dead guy.

So much is being made of the. Cut and color heard round the world after taking heat when a video emerged online of her her hair done indoors House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hit back on Wednesday claiming she's been set up by the Salon and she's the one who's Odin apology news of Pelosi's indoor appointment was first reported by box on Tuesday with a security footage showed her walking around the establishment with her hair wet not wearing a mask and that left the owner of the salon to call Pelosi's appointment request a slap in the face during a news conference with San Francisco Unified School district leaders on Wednesday Pelosi. This controversy saying that she was set up she used that were many times and I think we have a clip I take responsibility for trusting other word of a neighborhood salon that I've been to over the years many times and that when they said what we're able to accommodate people one person at A. And that we can set up that time I trust it that as it turns out, it was a set up. So I take responsibility for falling for a setup and that's all I'm going to say on that. She's finished off by saying that the that the Salon Odor and apology. So my take is first off, it's it's hard to be set up when you're making the appointment, you know what I mean. Yeah I would think and I'm sure her system main appointment and I'm sure I'm sure the people said. So the woman who owned the Salon wasn't the person that was doing the. Session know rented a chair out. From another article I read it said that I think giving this right the salon owner very unhappy with Pelosi in her policies and that sort of things. Absolutely. Very eager to get her inside. I don't I. Don't know it's a she but she the so the thing is is. Here's how it works. And here's the disconnect or the problem Nancy. Pelosi. was doing whatever I I know who got a hair who's gotten a haircut in the last six months has done. They've talked to the person and they've went hey, can I get a haircut and the person went? Yeah. Just come in the side door just come after hours. So just one person at a time will this comment so what she is engaging in is what everyone has been engaging in for the last several months the quiet I've heard the massage version of this I've heard like wax version of this I've had the haircut version of this I've talked to a woman who has a salon who seeing people in her house. I've talked to matt the ANDRO. WHO's one of these guys who just gets his haircut every three weeks no matter what that guy just opening the place to me but keeping it dark inside. People are doing what they're going to do when you take something and you say this is illegal now or we're prohibit you from doing this people look at it, and then they start weighing their options versus sort of danger and so if you say to somebody, Hey, you can't crawl up on those power lines and hang from the power wire people go done and done. But when they say you can't do something that that we perceive through our experiences not being inherently dangerous. You know when we go, there is no kind of why good luck telling people not to smoke pot when booze and cigarettes are legal you know what I mean you just can't really get a we lived in a world where there were no cigarettes and there were no boos then it's pretty consistent. It's like the Mormons can do that no pot no booze no coffee no nicotine no cigarettes no nothing. Okay. You disagree with that and you wouldn't want to live in that world but at least it's consistent. You know and so now in California especially, we have a world where you can fly southwest no problem but you can't go in and get your hair your roots died or your hair blown out and so what people do naturally. It doesn't seem that dangerous. I think I'm going to risk getting my roots died versus whatever danger is attached to this activity because. I'm watching and learning and sort of seeing what people are doing, and if they can go outside at a restaurant or they can fly in an airplane are they can go into a trader Joe's. Why couldn't they do this and so everyone's making that calculation and that's what everyone is doing. That's what Nancy Pelosi did. The only difference is with Nancy Pelosi is. She's making policy or she's involved with policy telling everyone else not to do it. That's the hypocrisy and that's where it kicks in. She just sent a message to me, which is she doesn't believe it's that dangerous if she's an eighty year old woman if she believed it was dangerous, she wouldn't do it. She was set up. In the sense that it was filmed but she was set up like marrying Berry, which is like I'm smoking crack in a hotel room with a hooker. This is a setup like it is a setup, but you're still killing you just feel doing it. It's a setup, the not that the pedophile. Pelosi. But what about all those pedophile got dragged into that house the other day like this is a setup like it is a setup. Yes. It was a setup. It's not a setup like you said in the sense that she got whacked over the head and woke up with a new blow out it was set up in that. She was doing something that she was doing and it got leaked. Yeah. Somebody said, Hey, you want to just come in alone wear masks although she wasn't in the footage but wear masks and get your hair blown oun she went. Okay. Okay. Because there's nothing inherently dangerous about it and I think one of her defenses was. I wasn't wearing a mask I was washing my hair. Do you wash? Do you wear a mask when you wash your hair like well? No not when I'm naked in the shower. Maybe if I'm at the Salon and I'm pointed up in a saint, a person's breathing down on me but the way she said it was was fantastic. It's also kind of the problem with all that we're talking about which is. Nancy. Pelosi is a big proponent wearing a mask fine but even Nancy Pelosi can't wear it when she's getting her hair wash doesn't choose to put it back up when she's walking from the washroom to the blowout room like. This notion of like everyone's going to be consistent I I've flown commercially ton everyone has a some people have pulled down down in their noses hanging out other people are eating with the mask hanging off the side. Like They're just not even the people that are down with the mass aren't doing it is consistently is they should be doing it. And just a footnote to that Now, that La County is at twenty five percent capacity indoor capacity for salons. What Dr Moon to Davis our health director guy says is if you're doing haircuts in the parking lot by all means, keep doing those in the parking lot just take twenty five percent to do the things you do outside. So they say keep doing your outdoor things and that way you know maybe you'll make ends meet when twenty five percent of your in shop is open i. also finally got an answer on why they're holding back on nail salons. 'cause that was driving me insane. And whether you agree or not at least I got an answer they said it's because you're more likely to get cuts like around your cubicles and have. Essentially an open wound. If they nick you, I was watching the story on CNN today it was at the very end of the new shows that John Berman I think he was sitting in. Sitting for Houston Cooper Anderson Gouverneur. It's funny. It's kind of funny when you know things. So I was like watching it and they were finishing the story and it's like last store the day Nancy Pelosi she got busted for Blah Blah Blah, and then there are like she says, she was said, but she of all people should have known that it wasn't whatever and I was like. CNN is bussing the chops of Nancy Pelosi like this is this is a rarity. And then ten seconds went by and I'll play it for you because it just it just made me made me laugh. Questionable decision in new video causing grief for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who swear she was set up video shows are inside of hair salon this week in San Francisco that is apparently against the rules no indoor visits allowed. She's also seen not wearing a mask and this portion of the video release. Now, our staff insists she did wear one just not here while getting her hair washed. She offered no proof and you would think the house speaker know the rules differences go herself states guidelines they should be worn when in public indoors and out. So yes, it is. Spirit criticized the house speaker who should have known better but it's fair to criticize anyone who breaks the restrictions guidelines and just plain common sense we all should live by. Continue so android the Chris for Cuomo prime minister was listening to the president said masks weakness WHO's always encouraging people to take off masks who held his big speech about hundred control the pandemic in front of a crowd that was largely without masks maybe Pelosi's falling under the. Influence. The president. I was like funny. They're going out bashing on Pelosi but. But coma cleaned it out. Shabby right. He added that ship Liberty lickety-split but it's funny how your instincts because. This is a weird note to go out on but CUOMO like no, we're not getting this fixed. Quick All right. Let me tell you about dodge summer take advantage of the dodge powered dollars. Drive home with any two thousand and twenty challenger Charger Durango and save ten bucks per horsepower.

So briefly, by Kovic Nineteen Dwayne, the Rock Johnson has revealed that he and his family all tested positive for coronavirus he broke that an eleven minute video on Instagram the rock has wife. Their two little girls having two years old four years old contract the virus they've recovered. He said the girls had some sore throat issues. It sounded like you know fever like symptoms but there okay. Ru-. The Rock and his wife got the brunt of it. said he said scratchy throat and that was it with the kids the kids he never even said fever like. All the clip I saw he just went they had a scratchy throat. I mean like sniffles and Jews lugging nothing for them. And then he said that him and his wife got it but he didn't really get into detail about what their symptoms were. I don't at least in the At least in the snippet I saw Oh, you didn't. You didn't hunker down for all twelve minutes of. I watch depar- talking about this I mean he said it. He said they felt worse than the girls did the girls were you know it was just basically like being sick? But But. Here's a clip of Johnson giving advice on what to do to stay healthy right now because he wants us all to be healthy. Older. Everything we can to boost our immune system antioxidants taking vitamin staying hydrated goes back to have my own two hands. It's got to control the controllables, and in this case, we can control the controllables might to hand philosophy, D-. So the takeaways be disciplined be disappointing when it comes to people coming over to your house, get them tested you never know. Be, extra cautious don't let your guard down. Boost your immunity. With antioxidants vitamins, things of that nature, and if you're already doing that thing great great word if you. Are Out there and you're like, well, we're GONNA do it when the new year comes or want to do it I know I should do it but what should I do? It's really easy. The effort is really minimal. It's just a slight tweak in how you approach things. He said see this is my thing. He said he did everything and there were super lockdown but then they fucked up and had somebody over family friends that felt horrible. Yes. Now my thing is, is at least in his claim as they were super disciplines, super lockdown and then they slipped up. Who's going to do better than the rock you know what I mean I mean in terms of like super disciplined and super lockdown. So this is this thing where it's like we did everything right for a long period of time, and then a couple came over and then we all got it in my thing is like. Yeah I don't expect most people to clear that bar. You know what I mean who, who, amongst US going to go we lockdown when I say lockdown down I mean we didn't leave the house. You know you go out you do do you know my daughter was religious about this thing and then had a slumber party like at some point This is GonNa Happen and then they got exposed to it his daughters he said, he just had a scratchy throat and get into much with them but he said it was almost nothing for them, and then he was talking about how difficult it was for him. But he was talking about emotionally like I'm here to protect my family and I didn't feel like I protected them and how difficult it was for him but he wasn't talking physically about him and his wife he's just saying. I what words he used, but wasn't getting into specific. Yeah. But the most challenging but he was like he meant like emotionally I think like because he said protecting my family or whatever. So he's in good shape. He tried everything he could do he still got exposed and he's fine. That's that's what I'm trying to. That's my argument for this whole thing he got it. Now you have to kind of he's kind of he's kind of mixing metaphors. She was talking about the most difficult thing he had to do. But he was talking about more about not being a provider. Are Not protecting his family where the fuck were all the where the fuck where all these good dad's when I was a kid. I. See these guys up there like my number one job is take family family. I'm a dad you know when you go to present Obama's twitter feed father husband. A space. President. Like what? World. These dads? These interviews areas like my number one job is to be a father and to be a great. My Dad never said that they've never even thought that is consistent. None of my friends dance. We're thinking about their number one job is to be a fucking far father and to be a great provider to protect you know I mean, maybe it's lip service but this commitment come from I didn't I didn't know it growing up. He's only a few years younger than you and I, think some can verify this yet grow relationship with his dad is Monday in life. Number Yeah. We talked about that the wrestler. His father was a wrestler. Yeah Rocky. Johnson. Wasn't orthodontist Rise buys upper body I. Thought for sure you know holding holding those drills and using the cleaning. Yes. Upper Body. Yeah. All right. So the moral of the story to me is Get your immune system up if you can or whatever wherever it is, it can be higher than it is now exercise and Diet and food and supplements, and all that and. Try to make yourself strong. In case you're exposed to this virus. All right. What else do we got the Gina Grad Day? You're too old but worth talking about because it's it's quite the cast the celebrity cast for the upcoming season of dancing with the stars has been announced and We'll just go through and see who you recognize. If you recognize any, we'll see over under names will no. I was I. saw couple people fly by TMZ. And I can't remember a lot of our like season five of the bachelor the second runner-up.

Backstreet boy singer and. That one doesn't count because I just told you from the backstreet boys. Aj. McLean. Host of the real and sideline correspondent on Holy Moly Jeannie My. TV and film actor Jesse Metcalfe. Heard that name way wasn't in. On desperate housewives Very good I believe he was rapper Nelly. Yeah. I I know I seven. TV Host Nev Schulman. So he's from Neb showman. From. Now Oh. The catfish guy. He's one of these guys whose last name makes it more confusing. Needs. The. V. Neck. NBA. Superstar Charles Oakley all right. This to be interesting. What what team is he from here's enforcer think he was in the Bulls and the Knicks The, Knicks was more I seem to recall him. Trish L. Chris. Shell. Staus. Unfold. No is C. H. R. I show. Selling set and Johnny Wear Weird Right. Olympic figure skating. Win That's what I said and that's the whole enchilada right there Hudson even a correspondent for that show I don't want. On Air, commentator. All Right Costumes I may not be the same I don't know check the online odds Max. Pat But put the money on Johnny Weird because I, had Kristi Yamaguchi in my graduating class at dancing with the stars. In she was literally. Better than her partner. I mean, she was when when you saw her, do her dance at. Dance Three. You'd have no idea who the professional was and who the star was. She that's how they train. Right they train on the floor. Anyway. Oh, yeah. I can tell you on. Find sponsor online on their odds are up for by the way for dancing with the stars Johnny we're is second favourite. Let me out for to half to one I'm say. Either Aj from backseat boys or Monica Altima, I'm going Davis AJ is the favourite four to one. But if you put a couple blocks on both those guys, you're GonNa make money, I'm putting money on weird because. Nothing for I've he would. Look at first off their background. You know what I mean like I have told this bunch of times but I mean, I was going Kristi Yamaguchi GonNa kill all of us and like. No because she's used to doing it on ice and I'm like. A harder version. That's like saying a guy can ride a unicycle on ice, but let's see him do it on linoleum. Like. A bet he could do it. A buried even better. And by the way the on ice part. Every day every training session starts with three hours in your socks, a dance studio, doing the moves off ice, and then you go on the ice with your partner. Was We're. Did he do partner skating I guess. must've guess he did. My advice, the gamers gamblers listening would be cover your ass to clean and. Johnny. We're honestly how you lose I. Think they're giving a j McLean, this kind of higher boost because go oh, he was a boy band and had to do all that synchronized stuff. Sir. But the synchronized stuff was pretty just kind of basic stuff. Now, he does have the mind and he does have the background. But he doesn't have a bet you that skill now put them on both fine. What did we do? Did he do couples that he do individuals vote single impair but he retired in twenty thirteen yeah. Now lost it I'll tell. Tour I'll tell you about where. Is. He his costumes may hinder him. You. Show. US over the town show flamboyant, he might go out there with the huge you know. showgirls type headdress on or something and have have his partner step on it. You know what I mean he's not going to be lean and mean. He's going to be all spangled up just. Before. I am. I'm telling you when you do that show you practice the whole time in your partners, wearing sweatpants or leggings or something like a tee top or a tank top. And then you go out there and they've got all the fringe and the tassels and everything in there like spinning around in your face it's like you're driving through a car wash. A. Oh wow you might be right. He looks like share dressed him. Mac address them. We go to the same Taylor. Okay. That's all I'M GONNA. Say but it's true. Once you get out there and everyone's all dressed up with all the stuff hanging off them and they're spinning and flipping zipping around, and you're trying to get a handle on and you're getting hit with all this fringe. How many full dress rehearsals do you do before the performance like on that floor in costume does Adam do or does one do? Four and a half. Before each one I think you just do the day of maybe because I don't think a lot of the costumes are ready until the very and their hands sewing everything. And it is true when you get out there and you're wearing this shoe for the first time or your wear this outfit or your partner, or You with the Zorro mask on or something like that it it tends to. Change things a little crazy. Yeah. Because directors. For Theater always say, do not go on stage for a performance with a prop you've never used. Your signing yourself up for disaster and you're going out in a full spangling head to toe out that you've never put on till the Brandon Lee. All right. Let me hit True Nigerian here, I've been taken cellular health vitamin True Nijr in for a few months now, more like half a year quite easily you get older and Dr Drew's been taken true Nigeria for a couple of years now get older your body's experienced near fifty percent decline in be which negatively affects the health of ourselves and our bodies lifestyle stressors like intense exercise lack asleep overeating and stress on the immune system also deplete ad because cells expend more energy to function backed by Nobel Prize, winning scientists clinical research in global regulatory approval it is true. Nigen. Support Cellular Energy and Defense Visit T. r you and I a G. E. and dot com use the code atom for twenty bucks off any three month plus supply through September four. So it's coming up their people. All Right Gina What are you? Got You wanNA bring it home. You've got half a story. Yeah. Let's do half story. David. Blaine back to his stunts he just flew through the sky carrying a bunch of balloons or I'll just say what appears to be A bunch of balloons the illusion has floated over and we have it floated over the Arizona desert on Wednesday by holding onto about fifty helium balloons according to CNN it's called ascension. His latest stunt took about an hour from liftoff to landing and was live on Youtube and his initial goal was to reach an altitude of about eighteen thousand feet. He ended up floating to almost twenty five thousand feet. That's about four point seven miles before skydiving and parachuting back to the ground. Didn't that Korean three year old kinda scoop with that whole. Kite stunt. Now, you're absolutely right I mean let's see. Blaine try that. That was no parachute no nothing man whipped around and no no, no cameras mounted everywhere. She did it for the love of the game. That's right. Purist that's. It's interesting because they were showing on the ground in this exact position with his knees bent at that exact angle and then he hasn't moved from that. So I'm wondering what's what's so special what's important about that exact angle his legs are bent at. You Know How there you? Have kind of picturing that it. It just the one that works probably best in best for him. Probably the one he trained probably trained in that. Position again. I'm a veteran of dancing with the stars have been hit with spangles I can tell you how vigorous it is during the training, how you must be consistent. So. He's up there he's got. A He has a parachute on him, right? Yeah. Yeah. He parachutes down, right. So parachute on you. Is. It a little bit because what makes this hairy as potentially falling to your to your death? Now. How does he control the balloons? Does he have like a BB gun or way to like? You know if he's getting too much altitude are caught in jetstream or something like that can heat pop a couple of balloons and start coming down a little bit. That's that's what CNN said. He was supposed to go to eighteen thousand feet but he went to twenty five thousand feet. Resting you'd think someone like that like David Copperfield. They have complete control over these types of things but you know how do you mess with the Wind I? Really don't know and the real question or another question is I draw distinction between literally just hanging onto a rope with the balloons and then having some sort of hand strap on C. whatever thing that did it because if you're just physically that young Korean girl no harness no Arish shoot no rigging no safety meetings no engineering. No. Computer simulations. And they'll shot. Down like he was leaving held. But yeah, like he's rigged through the back of his you know. Holding on to me if you WANNA go full. Balls out Harry like in my world like Travis Pastrana doing a backflip building top to building top right no harness no safety wire. This is ball's out.

"We've got him morons with Bob and Sheri. He's a moron. It's morons in the news. This first more on the new story is completely insane. I have never heard of anyone doing anything like this before. There's a thirty nine year old guy named Gabriel Marino in Modesto California and a few days ago. He was driving on the highway when he saw a tanker truck behind him filled with bulk red wine. I didn't know that's how they transported but evidently they do so he pulled over and then he hopped onto the side of the moving trucks and then climbed under the truck. Indiana Jones Style unscrewed a valve and started choking the red wine. That was pouring out. The driver didn't know what was happening until he looked in his rear view mirror and solve the spilling wine so he pulled over and called the cops they found gave real underneath the bottom of the truck drinking wine and doing snow angels in it. He was arrested for felony vandalism. The truck's spilled approximately one thousand gallons of red wine total which is enough to fill five thousand bottles or Sherry's house for the month of June. I keep I keep waiting for you to get to the part where there's a crime this guy you have it over the past many many days weeks to be in your house like you felt the same. Here's the truck here. Compared to daddy today's the day comes to us out of Brooklyn Connecticut. We don't get a lot more on stories out of Connecticut for some reason. But here's a good one. This guy got kicked out of a McDonald's in Brooklyn Connecticut because you didn't have a face mask and it's the rules there so he threw a rock through the window. Then you stole women's underwear from a Walmart and then surrendered when police threatening to set the dogs on him. His name is Jason is thirty seven. He was charged with criminal mischief. Missed and breaching the peace. When he was asked to leave the McDonald's he just became so upset that after he threw the Rock He had no other second plan except to go to Walmart. And steal a whole bunch of panties and then then tried to escape the canine dog but I guess he took a look. It became nine dog and realized that he was no match for that. And that's when surrendered.

One of the most memorable characters with the Andy Griffith show was ernest. T bass. He was on four episodes but he was always throwing rocks at people. But I have to stick up. He never then went to one of the local stores installed women's Panties. I just don't understand the thought process there. It's all showed them. I can't come in there without a facemask. Steel fannies I. I feel so sorry for this next woman. I put her in morons in the news. But she's not really a moron. She's kind of cute and she just didn't realize that she didn't mute.
