"Simply eat us until we die. Or will we be able to grow out and around essentially vic the parasite from the economic system so that we can heal dot requires the wealth transfer because the problem is the control of the wealth today if we are if we continue to use the debt system rather than an asset rather than a positive value system. What we are doing is explicitly using something that is under the control of the parasite the very thing that his strip mined our entire economy of all of its value and left us with no seed to plant next season if our solution if the the amount of wealth within that structure does not actually get dealt with if it does not come down if it is not able to exit that and transfer to a new anew bloodstream. I guess you could say when the like using the analogy the organism again if it can't actually shift over there's no fixing it this is why it is so crucial to keep bitcoin secure to ensure above all else that it simply survives because it needs to actually hold all of the value in the legacy system all of it is going to need to escape to save itself from the cancer from the debt finally soaking up all the remaining resources because essentially what it is we've owed are we've owed. We owe everything that we have plus five x ten x fifty x as much to the parasites right now. So if we let it correct without an exit is just going to the whole organism is going to implode. We need something that is secure and reliable enough that the that the economy around did the organism built around it can get exponentially more valuable and dependent upon it without crippling the system itself. Everything about its cryptographic. Insecurity imperatives must be must have the absolute highest assurances because it is going to be the new blood flow but it can if it does if it can survive if it can continue to provide the assurances it has provided it will continue to just get stronger and stronger as its value. Increases in that game theory will become far far more deeply entrenched. I guess you could say or embedded. There will essentially no longer be institutions outside of the game theory of bitcoin as everybody becomes tied to it. As the parasite itself even has to siphon off of that other bloodstream. You know the ability to actually hold a little bit of the bitcoin in order to prevent their own deaths when they now have to become they can no longer be a parasite when they actually have to become a part of this this alternative system this parallel system that they don't actually have the authority of but they can still benefit from the wealth transfer by participating in an early so the shift here is really really interesting. And i like ansel's little thought experiment or his idea that this could actually be a reascendence of the actual bank of the the traditional bank in the sense of the security and the services provided by.

"Bitcoin and the big one price continues to rise dramatically in part aided by the bank's holding more of it. Bitcoin will become a large portion of their balance sheets. This will either force the us government to buy bitcoin or simply regulated and defer to banks holding bitcoin along with the bank's holding a lot of bitcoin. The us would have to make bitcoin. Legal tender and support the formation of some sort of bank centered layer to like federated side chain. This side chain might resemble block streams liquid the dollar would be the denomination of perhaps one hundred soto. She's within that side chain. This would give banks the ability to extend credit to a minimum degree according to the federation policies while enabling maximum transparency thereby addressing the common criticism against the fixed supply. Bitcoin not solving for the fixed supply. That doesn't need solving. But enabling some form of elasticity this process would entail a drastic weakening of the federal reserve and a return to a somewhat forgotten era in the us where banks not central banks. Were ascendant the as the us. Rediscovers it's populist. And non interventionist passed. It will also redefine its monetary system in line with the past as well this time around bitcoin right.

How angry california comments for hikers. Now i mean yeah. That's just because they have so many amazing national parks it's huge. They have a ton of national parks. The national parks. They do have our giant. So i think they're just it's just. They're unlucky because of their size and this actually the area we're talking about is not a national park it's a wilderness area but this gentleman did a lot of climbing all over the region. So he was in yosemite he was in the wilderness area. He was in the john muir wilderness area so while joe is going to go through the location profile. Kind of the ansel adams wilderness area. But just understand that. He was hiking and climbing of all over this region. He was like a pro. Yeah so he. He was going everywhere he could. So this era talking about the mammoth lakes area which includes the ansel adams area and those other kind of areas we talked about. That's a generalization of where we're talking about. I was born in nineteen sixty four and it's very heavily use so there's about thirty million people that live within a few hours drive of this area so it's going to be high traffic. It's not going to be desolate however the formations are more. I don't know mars like scape.

That's a mediterranean climate Showing with most precipitation falling in a mild winter and other seasons are nearly dry with less than three percent of precipitation falling in the long hot summer. So it's dry rocky. I saw when i was looking at the pictures of it. Appl- up it just kind of looks like if it were all read it looks like the images that get sent back from mars with a few trees obviously in some areas. But it does you. We were just talking about how generalize some regions it does look a lot like yosemite and spots to this case. Like in the bally's where you have like the evergreens and stuff. Yeah because so like mammoth lakes is actually only thirty miles away from half dome. So it's not very far and so you know it's they all share the same kind of climate terrain but there are areas of ansel adams wilderness. That are just absolutely rugged and climbers paradise.

"ansel" Discussed on This Day in History Class
"Today was february twentieth. Nineteen o to a child. By the name of ansel adams was born to olive bray in tarleton hitchcock atoms and san francisco. California adams would turn out to be a renowned landscape photographer and a crusader for wilderness conservation. Adams was born into a wealthy family as his grandfather was a successful timber. Baron but his family fortune took a hit in nineteen o seven after a financial crisis in the united states and they struggle at trying to recoup what they had lost as a child and still had a hard time at school. He was kicked out of several schools for bad behavior so he started taking lessons with private tutors and family at age twelve early on he was drawn to music. He taught himself to play. The piano started taking piano lessons and had no problem focusing his efforts on training to become a professional musician but playing the piano was not the art form he would eventually become famous for adams was already smitten with nature. As a child he took long walks around. Golden gate hiked the sand dunes and went to the beach. Among other escapades in the outdoors in nineteen sixteen adams visited yosemite national park for the first time he had read the book in the heart of the sierras by james mason hutchings and persuaded his parents to take him to the park and he was immediately taken with the landscape. On that trip he would take pictures of the scenery with the kodak number. One box brownie. His parents had given him and from that point on instagram Dive deeper into his love. For nature and photography in nineteen nineteen adams joined the sierra club an organization that promotes activities advocates for environmental protection and preservation. He became super active in the club and his first published photos and writings were released in nineteen twenty two in the club's bulletin adams soon became the trip photographer on high trips or wilderness excursions that the sierra club hosted every summer uniting his passions for the great outdoors and photography in nineteen twenty seven. Ancil climbed four thousand feet to get to the spot where he would take a photo called monolith. The face of half dome adams would call the photo. His first visualization or the first time he attempted to convey his feelings envision in a photograph insult right. I saw the photograph as a brooding form with deep shadows in a distant sharp white peak against a dark sky. That photo would turn out to mark. A seminal moment in adams life and career adams still had an interest in music but by the late nineteen twenties. He began to focus more heavily on his photography. Projects informed relationships with people who influenced his artwork patron of the arts. Albert m bender encouraged ancil to keep pursuing photography and provided ansel with the funds to do so in nineteen twenty eight. Insulin married virginia. Best that same year adams had his first solo exhibition at the sierra club. Headquarters will also begin traveling to the american southwest to work with writer. Mary hunter austin and they published the book taus pueblo in nineteen. Thirty adams have been practicing pictorial in his work using thought focus techniques filters and heavy manipulation but in nineteen thirty. He met photographer. Paul strand whose work influenced him to pursue a style called straight photography where the focus is sharp in themes. Do not appear manipulated. This would be the style he would go onto. Champion in later. Years adams said the following in his essay. A personal credo. A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about. What is being photographed in the deepest sense and is thereby a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety and the expression of what one feels should be set forth in terms of simple devotion to the medium a statement of utmost clarity and perfection possible under the conditions of creation and production. That will explain why. I have no patience with unnecessary complications of technique or presentation over the years amsoil and his work gained more popularity and he collaborated with more artists. He joined a group called sixty four with other noted photographers and though it was short lived. The group brought straight photography to the art. World's attention adams had his first new york show nineteen thirty three published his first series of technical articles in nineteen thirty four and launched his first widely distributed book in nineteen thirty five. He worked long hours and has been described as a party man but as the story goes for so many artists just because he was so popular didn't mean he was making the money to match that he took commercial photography jobs throughout his life. Annan's technical mastery and artistry were set in stone. He went on to develop zone system a photographic technique to get proper exposure development and produced many technical manuals on photography but he also fought for environmental conservation. He advocated for new parks pushed back against unnecessary high waist and wrote letters in support of conservation to editors and politicians. His photos influence public awareness. On issues of natural landscape preservation he even documented life at a japanese american internment. Camp ansel adams died in nineteen eighty-four in california but his advocacy and artwork left an imprint for later generations of artists and environmentalists. I'm each jeffcoat in.

Photography Book Recommendations
"I love it. When readers asked me a specific question that. I haven't really given a lot of thought to because it causes me to have to think and to share things with you. So here we go. Here's an email I received dear, Brooks I hope you don't mind if I ask for a bit of your time but I'm just beginning photography and looking for some good books to take my work to the next level I'm not talking about technical stuff. That's all over the place it Amazon. But I'd love to find something more like your podcasts on the creative side of photography. Can you recommend some good books I should read? This is from a reader named Darrell. Will Darrell that is a fascinating question. and. It caused me to have to go back into my library and really look at. The books that I own I, probably have at last count about five thousand books in my personal library on art and photography. And you know. How do you narrow that down? But nonetheless, your email prompted me to do so and I think I've got a list here that I would be comfortable in recommending of feel a little guilty in little hesitant because. There are so many books that I didn't put on the list that have been influential in my photography. But I think all of these that I'm about to share with you or ones that you could develop a really solid foundation for your creative life with the ideas that are encapsulated in these books. And I've divided the list into two groups well, three groups really but. Mainly the two groups are the five short book recommendations for All photographers. And then I felt like I wanted to put together a list of longer books that need. Study as that are probably the kind of thing that will take decades to really absorb because they're bigger books but also because they have so many ideas. The five short books are ones that I think you could all approach fairly quickly and you would find them well worth your time. They're all relatively thin books, but as has so often been said be careful of thin books because they're dangerous once they are so distilled. To the essence of the ideas. That they're deceptively simple looking. But when you get into him, you find out that there's a tremendous amount of meat and potatoes, and that certainly exists with these five short books the first of which is. On being photographer by David Hernan Bill J I suspect many many of you listening podcast or already familiar with on being photographer partly because we published it. And you're already plugged into lens work through these podcasts. So you've probably heard of Bill J. and David hearn, his friend was magnum photographer. They approach me with the idea of having. US, published this book. Oh, Gosh twenty years ago now, and it's It's never been out of print since then it's just a terrific idea and a terrific book in this book, if you're not familiar with it, basically although build offers plenty of his opinions, he functions more as the interviewer for David and it's more like a conversation between these two lifelong friends about David's ideas about being a photographer and the pragmatics of being photographer not f stops and shutter speeds and not necessarily esoteric gallery stuff but just the life of being a photographer and what that's involved with and so many good practical ideas. So that's the first one again a thin book but packed with great ideas on being photographer, David Hurn and Bill Jay. The next one is same thing very thin book. It looked like you can read it quickly it will require the rest of your life to really understand it and it's called art and fear. By David Bales and Ted Orland Ted Orleans was pretty well known I. Think because he was an ansel Adams darkroom assistant early on and he's been around photography for a longtime David. Bayles also very smart guy the two of them have had a lifelong friendship and they put down their ideas about. The art life and the difficulties of the art life in this small book art and fear, but it is so packed with ideas.
The Reasons Behind Our Faulty Dietary Guidelines
"Hi, Brian, how's it going good Dylan Grades Swell. Thank you so much for making it onto our show. Absolutely exciting. So can you just tell our listeners late more about your background? Yeah. Well, actually lives nutrition twenty-five day for three years. I've been making a film I'm just all in I just read studies I watched lectures I go to conferences. My whole world is around finding out about health and I'm making film called food lies, which is all about that. It's trying to demystify nutrition nutrition super complicated right everyone has their own idea diet everyone someone who went vegan in loss late and someone did. The. They went carnivore they lost weight and they feel great houses even possible. So my big overarching goal is trying to get the average person to understand nutrition and eating and how to be health. Yeah. So I've been a reading about the documentary lies that you're working on and I think site were saying that you know the documentaries reading intended to cover the history of dietary. Guidelines the epidemic of chronic disease and obesity that followed from that on the new signs actually telling US humans what we should be eating and how to eat that food sustainable. Let let's unpack that actually one by one because I'm curious about what you mean actually when you talk about the history of dietary guidelines. Yeah. Well, there there's a long history there and actually I should say. I've been doing this longer than three years. I just spent three years full-time actually actually have background mechanical engineering and tech, but also had my own sort of health during my family I lost both my parents at eight thirty, thirty one to these chronic diseases from people eating the wrong diet, and this leads into dietary guidelines because we follow the dietary guidelines, our whole life they ate. The Food Pyramid we ate the low fat foods cooked food ourselves. We weren't going out to McDonald's we weren't. You know doing anything crazy. We were we were just making our own food and falling the guidelines and they slowly got just sicker as they aged and we kind of except that, right it's people like Oh. Yeah. It's like the dad body you know yeah, you're supposed to. Get a dad bought as you grow up, wait a second. That's that's not right. Actually you know and look myself in my twenties. I was getting that dad bod I didn't I have great health I was getting sick every once in a while I had just pudgy and now I'm ten years older thirty seven now and I'm in way better health than I was when I was twenty seven and it's because I went away from the dietary guidelines on way from the Food Pyramid and you know as the cliche goes you do the opposite and just to be clear like when when when you say food pyramid, that's something that was introduced by the Food and Drug Administration like what's sixty sixty seventy years ago? Yeah. Whilst Nineteen, seventy, seven, there was the original deter nineteen eighty. I. Think was a even more recent. Yeah. It started. Okay. So I will go into that. The actually history of it started around nineteen, fifty five with President Eisenhower had heart attack right? So this is the time when a lot of people smoking and a lot of these all these new vegetable oils are coming through diet like, Fried, foods and people are moving away from the national foods. You know they cook for themselves. So there's a lot going on in this time and yet he was like, Hey, what's going on why do I have heart disease and he had more heart attacks basic put together. The McGovern. Committee. Also in the in the nineteen sixties and seventies is one is all taking place and there was a guy named Ansel keys that was kind of tasked with figuring out what how does heart disease developed right and he looked any thought it was saturated fat and cholesterol is it that was his hypothesis and he did the famous seven countries study and there's a lot to that story. Some people turn a million times something have never heard of it but he basically looked at all these different countries in he cherry picked seven out of twenty two and showed this correlation where the. More, saturated fat cholesterol, the country eight, the more heart attacks died from and you know it, it's actually wasn't done well it it's correlation science not causation on he also cherry picked it and we look at all the countries he skips there was no direct correlation was all over the place and there was another guy named John Yetkin who had a competing theory that it was the sugar and the refined flour that was causing the problem and he was over in England and looking at all these different societies that just recently changed their diet than started adding a lot more. Sugar and flour and stuff like that, and they were getting sick. So that was his idea but he's won out eventually we came to these dietary guidelines like I said in seventy seven and nineteen eighty was food pyramid. Now it's called my plate, but it's all about the same and is kind of the same around the world and those guidelines to told us to what like eat more grains and less meat dairy or what was it exactly the Food Pyramid people don't even remember the food. The whole base of the Food Pyramid is starches and grains. You know it's like e. Eight to eleven, servings of starches and grains, rice, and Pasta and bread, and all this stuff, and then it was fruits and vegetables in the next level and it was like whatever five to six servings of each and then we finally got to the the highly bioavailable nutrient animal foods up up near the top and in the very top were you know backed sugar and oil I guess we're the very top. So yeah, this is what they put out to the world. They basically put the world's on an experiment unproven low fat diet and they actually said, what's the worst that could happen? The world on the low fat diet and you know how can be bad fat Scott would be bad for you even though we've been eating fat for all of human history
Best practices for shooting with a view camera
"Not that I want to take all of you down another trip down memory. Lane. But I wanNA talk a little bit about view cameras which was the camera of my youth talk about Gear Acquisition Syndrome I. Think all of us who were interested in pursuing fine art photography in the middle of the twentieth century automatically turned our attention to view cameras because well, that was what ansel Adams used. That was what Edward Weston us that was what all the great photographers used. Except for cardiac or sawn and some of the Magnum photographers but I think a lot of sort of. Discounted that wing of photography is not really the same thing as fine art photography they were more photo journalists and they needed the speed and flexibility of thirty five millimeter equipment and good for them. But for those of us who are interested in, say, for example, landscape photography. Of you camera was the camera of choice but let's admit that hardly anyone uses a view camera anymore and I think for probably pretty good reason they are incredibly Fussy to use lots of little controls, lots of ways to mess up lots of ways to kick things slightly out of focus you can't use them quickly they demand that you use a tripod and they're difficult to set up and it. CETERA. So there's there's slow. They require precise camera manipulations critical focusing on the ground glass. They force you to slow down that that's really think the issue we live in the age of speed and quickness and multitasking, and all the rest of that view cameras force you to slow down. But you know that can be a virtue. As a matter of fact, there may be lots of virtues to view camera and we be able to borrow some of those virtues and use them with our new Yippee skippy digital tools if we really want to. For example, there's nothing that says you have to shoot at twelve frames per second burst mode you can slowdown. Slowing down gives us the opportunity to look and think and with a view camera. In fact, you don't have a choice you have to slow down and look and think, and I think that can actually lead to better photography. And again to compare that to today's cameras where it's all about burst rates and autofocus and instant posting to your social media firehose. I'm not convinced that all of that leads to photographic virtue. At least not when it comes to. Fine Art photography, which is supposed to be about depth of feeling and understanding and being able to share something. That's a little more significant than the glance of social media which I've talked about before. So I don't want to take more time today. But I. Guess. I would some all of that up by just saying that just because the camera is manufactured to be fast Doesn't mean we have to use it. Fast. So here's a few things that I think. We can borrow today from view camera techniques that might be perfectly applicable to digital cameras and the kind of photography we do today because of the virtues of the way it changes the way we work the way we relate to the things that are before the camera, etc the first and most obvious one. is the dark cloth. When you photograph view camera, the image on the ground glass is relatively dark, and so the only way to really see it well is to use a dark cloth and you pull it over your head and you cover the camera and yourself in this dark cloth, which separates you from the world, not only physically but to some degree. Psychologically certainly visually, and you can look at the world from a very narrow perspective when you use a dark law. Now in truth I'm such a trained view camera photographer that when I bought my first digital cameras in early two thousands, I use them with the dark cloth because it was so difficult to see those little teeny tiny LCD screens on. Those early cameras and they were so dark that in the song I couldn't see them at all. So I just used my view camera dark cloth and I found it at great way to not only see the screen and make sure I was composing correctly and all that kind of stuff but the psychological aspect of putting the dark cloth over my head. was such a transition in my internal chronometers. that a I had a a a switch of psychology from looking at the world to photographing the world that had been trained into me for thirty years with a view camera and I found that was a useful tool even though I was now shooting with a digital
But Is It Real
"I've been working this last week with Lens Work Alumnus Jack Curran because he and I are teaching workshop this weekend as part of the out of Chicago in depth virtual seminars that are happening this weekend and in preparation for that workshop, I've been spending a lot of time working with Jack Looking at his work and in particular looking at a lot of the before and after images, what the camera captured versus what he made in Photoshop Light Room in order to create a little bit of artwork from sometimes a pretty bland camera capture and that has me thinking about photography's tenuous relationship with the truth and what we do that is to say the power of what we can do with software. I I came into this idea about photography's tenuous relationship with truth when I visited. Yosemite for the first time in the early nineteen eighties to attend a workshop. Of course, before I had absorbed everything that ansel Adams did in terms of Yosemite and I. I was so inspired by the Yosemite that he presented his photographs and books that I. Thought this is this is fantastic. Going to be a wonderful opportunity to go see the place for myself. But I have to say that when I arrived in Yosemite what I experienced standing there looking at half dome and El Capitan and a Cetera was not at all what I had seen in ansel Adams photographs and I realize that he had made something in his artwork. That was not real in the sense that if you were standing there next to ansel Adams and looking at what it was that he photographed, and then comparing that to his eventual photographic artwork, you would realize how much difference he had created through the craft of photography and the aesthetic choices that he made when he was processing his film and his prints. And I became aware that there is different kinds of. Photographic truth I guess is the way I would call it. My first reaction was to be a little disappointed because. I thought I was going to see something spectacular that only exists in a photograph and so I kind of felt like had been a little bit hoodwinked. But. The more deeply I thought about this in the subsequent decades the more I've come to realize that there are different kinds of truth and one kind of truth might be what I characterize as the physical truth or maybe more accurately the camera truth. That is to say what the camera sees is one thing and that's one kind of truth. And that's the kind of truth that we really insist on in documentary photography and in evidentiary photography and those kinds of things. But rarely do we see that as part of fine art photography? The great challenge that all of us fine art photographers have is not to merely make a copy of what the world looks like or even to accept what the camera tells us and the film. Tells us that the world looks like. But rather work we're interested in different kind of truth. And generally speaking I use in my own way of thinking anyway, the term emotional peak that that's what we're looking for is some kind of emotional peak. We don't want to have every day life presented to us because we can see that for ourselves every single day, what we is something that's a more extraordinary experience we want an emotional peak. So we want think of ansel Adams in Yosemite. Again, we want that high contrast, absolutely spectacular cloud moment of unique and wonderful weather with everything sort of. Dolled up for the artwork. Of course, there are photographers who want just exactly the opposite of that. Think of Lee freelander and Louis Baltin some of that end of the scale of fine art photography but in terms of the more publicly acceptable. Ansel. Adams Edward Weston, those kind of people. That kind of photography is more geared towards some sort of emotional peak. And generally speaking that's achieved by. Pushing everything a little harder than it really is. When the camera captures it that is to say, it's generally we're gonNA push the contrast a little bit we're going to. Increase the. Vibrancy of the collars so that they're more read those fall leaves than they really appear in real life. So it's kind of a hyper reality if you will. And the purpose of that kind of hyper reality. Is I think to. Prompt in us, an emotional response that. Probably. Well. Biologists and physicians and whatnot could explain this better. But I think it has something to do with the release of endorphins and all those feel good hormones that we have in our human system that give us a little jolt of excitement and hyper reality in terms of experiencing
Mastering Money With the Budgetnista
"So. Tiffany. Let's start with your personal story. So we're currently in third recession of the century. But I'm guessing that you're doing just fine partially at least because of the lessons you learned during the last recession to tell us a little bit about your history, what the last recession was like for you and what has happened since then. Now. Certainly The last question caught me off guard i. Was Not prepared. I because quite honestly I was a schoolteacher and you know I was pretty confident. I'm like, I don't know that schoolteachers lose their jobs because you know we are essential workers, and now yet here we are back again. But Yeah I was a schoolteacher and I didn't move my job actually in two, thousand, eight when so many of my friends did but I let I lost it at the tail end of two, thousand nine. So it really took me by surprise but. Up until like I would say, twenty, five, twenty, six, I was what I called financially. Perfect. I grew up in a household. Money was talked about wasn't scared of talking about finances. Might author was a CFO OF A small nonprofit? He also had his NBA in economics, his his a in finance. My mom was a nurse and we literally used to have money meeting so. I. Didn't grow up with the angst that most people did. So by the time, I was twenty five even though. I was teaching preschool wasn't making much. I think I was making like forty thousand dollars a year By the time I was twenty, five ahead. Forty thousand saved bought a Condo I. I had an ADL to I. Think Credit Score at didn't have any credit card debt. I paid off like my parents helped with my undergrad degree plus. I commuted. So what I did haven't stood alone. I was able to pay that off a few years after school. So financially perfect like okay. So I honestly couldn't relate although I was helping my friends with their budgets savings and things like that. I couldn't relate to the mistakes because I had not yet need them but I was going to then. When I was twenty six, I went on to get my masters in education and I was like, okay. So you now you went from no debt to a mortgage, not so bad. I had a a you know student loans because my master's not so bad. But by twenty six, I said, okay. Now, I'm ready to learn to invest and instead of asking my father who has literally two degrees in years of experience I'm GonNa ask a friend of mine. and. So I asked a friend of mine who appeared to be independently wealthy because he had like a really nice car. and. Like a like a fancy apartment he's well I think Spurs. You have to learn to invest with other people's money at. My money. So what he postulated as is that. Do, you have credit card said, yes. But I paid off in full every month because as instructed by my father, he was like well, did you know you could pull money off a credit card? I, did not know that. So he said not only can you pull off one? You could pull it off to I was like double the mistake. Let's do it. So I pulled off twenty thousand dollars off of my credit cards and I went to invest with him what's to say? That didn't happen I. ENDED UP Thirty, five thousand dollars in credit card debt when I didn't have credit card debt prior and I just remember thinking a first year. I said didn't want to take responsibility for the mistake that I made I did not tell my dad or my mom. But I pay just a minimum because I said, you know what? He's going to come back or he's GonNa. Take care of this because it's not my fault of Ansel from age twenty seven I didn't do anything. Well, twenty, seven night out the money twenty eight, just pay the maximum finally twenty nine, I said all right I'm GONNA pay off this debt just going to buckle down I live pretty frequently anyway, and then twenty nine is when I lost my job. So. Now, I've got a mortgage student loan credit card debt and I was like, okay, I don't know what to do. I've never been in the situation. So. Fallon to this light dark hole of like spiral like because I'm twenty nine going on thirty I've lost everything as far as I can tales financially. So I ended up moving back home with my parents without telling them why they knew it was the recession obviously, and they also knew I lost my job, but they didn't know. ABOUT CREDIT CARD DEBT Live with them for year than I. Am I live with my sister on her couch for year, try to figure out my life because back. Then now we're getting the six hundred dollars a week on our stimulus stimulus check. But what was happening then as they just extended unemployment typically, you can get unemployment for up to a year. They extended to two years. So I said, okay, you have two years to. To figure out what are you going to do with your life I was afraid to go back to work for someone because I thought it, you can lose a job as a preschool teacher essential. Then that's not safe. What could be safe? So I tried a bunch of different things I tried on party promoting party planning I volunteered everywhere I can think of, but while doing so I was helping my friends. But save get out of debt all these things in one day. My friend said, you should turn that into a business and I'm like you. Now I had gone to school my bachelor's degrees in business, but I hadn't used it. And so I, tried to charge people one on one. Only to find the people that you're actually helping with your budget. The reason why they hired us because they don't have any money. So that was a bad business. So I, switched my business model to one too few and I worked on getting contracts and I got my first contract with the United, way? And I rose excited 'cause they were going to pay me I think like. Three, or four, hundred dollars a class and I had a six week course that I'd written. For them, and so I did, and that was like my first. Okay. Maybe I can really make a run at this My little sister gave me the nickname, the budget. So that became because she said like, I'm not like the fashion. Easter. Who is really fashionable, but I am very cheap so

The Seven Roles of Photography
"Let's start today with an obvious given. We all have cameras. We all take pictures but the question I WANNA ask today is why and there's one simple answer that probably accounts for ninety nine percent of what we do photographic -ly we make pictures because it's fun and it's entertaining and we enjoy it and we don't need any more excuses than that and so the rest of this podcast can be forgotten except for the fact that some of us. WanNa do something more with our photography. The just have fun. Some of US WANNA do something more with our photography than just capture memories. That is to say we're interested in using photography something beyond the snapshot and when that happens now. I think it may be more interesting to ask why. What is the purpose of making our artwork? We'll part of the reason to be an artist. Is that things. Like photography gives us a way to approach the world almost an excuse to approach the world as I've said for years. A camera is a fantastic. Excuse for going out and exploring and people will give permission to go places and see things that you wouldn't have if he just said. I'm curious and I WANNA go see it but if you say I want to take picture of it. Sometimes that opens doors and so a camera can be a handy tool for us to use in life as an excuse to go out exploring okay fine but that still doesn't give us a reason why we wanNA create artwork from the photographs that we capture with our cameras. Why do we WANNA make prints in math and frame them and put them on the wall or publish them or make folios chat or whatever? What is it that motivates us? What is our purpose for creating artwork for reasons? I can't explain it other than the fact photography's my life. I find this a fascinating question and so I spent considerable time in the last no sixty days or so thinking about this more critically trying to figure out. What is the purpose for being an art photographer other than fun? And an excuse to explore the world essentially what I came up with. This is just my own little brainstorm so I'm not pretending like this inclusive or exhaustive of all possibilities. But here's what my brain thought that. There are basically seven roles of photography and by that I mean things that we do with photography not rules Phil The seven roles of photography that is to say there are seven purposes of fine art photography that I find help clarify my thinking about what it is that I'm doing once. I had sort of concluded this brainstorm I applied retrospectively and I discovered that it was pretty useful. Sometimes I could use these seven ideas to clarify a project that I wasn't quite sure what I was doing. And where it was going and what the next step was etc how to conclude it or even how to make final decisions about editing and sequencing but once I had these seven roles of photography in mind I found I could go back and use this to clarify my thinking so that was a reason to explore why we make our work. The other thing is it tells me what the limits of my thinking our because I have no doubt there are more than seven ideas. That should be on this list but for some reason. I can only think of seven roles of photography. I'll get into them in here. Just a second but I can only think of seven which tells me the limits of my thinking and as a matter of fact when I went back and looked at the well at this point I have a hundred thirty seven small projects that have been published in cocoa and all hundred and thirty seven of them fit with one of these seven definitions of the roles of photography and not a single one was outside of this. So that tells me I need to push the envelope a little bit. Because they're probably some things that I missing that I've become so entrenched in my thinking that I need to expand so with that in mind. Let me share with you. What I am characterizing. As the seven roles of photography these are things. We want our fine art photography to do the purpose for making what we make and why we make it. The first is to take me there that is to say camera as transporter through space and time the classic examples of this are probably ansel. Adams in contemporary photographer Art Wolf. I'll use him as an example and there are lots and lots of others but the essence of this kind of photography is for us as viewers to go someplace through space and time to a place that we have not been or cannot go and see the world through the eyes of the photographer no question. That's probably the dominant use of photography in terms of fine art photography or as far as that goes with snapshots snapshots take us back in time to an event that happened so that we can remember it more clearly the snapshots that we make vacation pictures can take us to a place that we're not currently at but maybe we visited on vacation and we want to remember it and reminisce about it and so take me. There is the first and most dominant role of photography and lots and lots of projects fit that

So You Want to Do a Book
"Here's the editor of Lens Publishing Bruce. Jensen almost every photographer. I know wants to do a book of their work. I cannot tell you how many conversations I've had over the years with photographers. Who particularly in review sessions say? I'm here primarily because I'm looking for a publisher and would you be interested in publishing my work or if you're not interested in publishing my work can you tell me how to find a publisher or what. I have to do to produce a book of my work even if it means funding it and producing it themselves all well and good the problem. Is that when I talk with these photographers? A little more deeply about their desire to do a book of their work. I've found that few of them have any clear idea why they WANNA do a book. There's lots of fantasies that crop up about what they think book is going to do for them but generally speaking those are unrealistic ideas and there are primarily five of them that I've identified over the years that are reasons people say for wanting to produce a book and I WanNa take a look at those five reasons and and look a little more deeply at them so here they are the first thing people say is they wanna make money and they think that rather than selling their original prints they think they can make money by selling books second. They think a book will help them broaden their audience get their artwork their photographs in front of more eyeballs. And that's what they're primarily interested in his audience and so a book to them. We'll get a lot more people to see their work than having say an exhibition third. They say they want to add their voice to photographic history. They somehow perceive all the famous photographers. They know come from their experience of seeing work in books relative to galleries. We see a lot more books than galleries and exhibitions and museums and etc. And so they think they can add their voice to photographic history by producing a book and somehow put themselves in the Pantheon of the march of photographic artwork through the ages fourth. They say they want to be taken seriously or the way I tend to think of it is they somehow think that producing a book of their work is going to be some sort of validation of their artwork like they've arrived particularly if a publisher a third party agrees and solicits them to publish their work. That that's some sort of validation rather than if they were to self publish. Which has a lot less validation about it. And the fifth reason people say they want to produce a book is because they want to produce something for the ages they think somehow that producing a book will be more substantial than producing just their individual photographic prints and having a book out there that's in libraries or special collections or owned by people means that their work will live beyond them so there's a mortality issue involved now curiously enough all five of these common reasons people offer up for why they WANNA produce book have one thing in common and that is that they think somehow the medium of book publishing holds the key to all of this success when in fact the medium of book publishing is just a medium. It's another way to get your work out there in the world but it really doesn't hold the key to any of this success in fact what is the key that opens up. All of these doors is the quality of their work. But it's so much easier to focus on the medium than on making better more meaningful more sensitive higher quality photographs that. That's a mystery about how to do that. Every one of us are involved in that mystery. And that's what I call leading the creative life is figuring out how to make more impactful artwork. That is true to ourselves and at the same time share something of value with people. That's hard work and that's very difficult to do. Making a book by comparison is relatively easy and so the focus becomes. Let's zero in on the medium rather than on the work. Well maybe not to the exclusion of the quality of the work. But somehow the idea is that the medium will unlock all the doors and it just doesn't because each one of these has some problems involved with them and I want to take them one at a time. So let's start with making money. The problem with wanting to produce a book of your work in order to make money is that the financial aspects of. It's simply don't work the book. Business is not a very healthy business right now partly because costs continue to escalate on what it takes to produce a book tax laws work against you because essentially they make it a one year project. You can't any longer amortize your costs over the life of the book and there's this nitpicky thing called break even so. I know it's hard to follow numbers but let me see if I can share these fairly simply. Let's say it's GonNa cost you twenty five dollars to produce a book that's paper printing binding. The cost for the printer at twenty five dollars is what is going to cost you to produce your book and let's say you can sell your book for Fifty Dollars Good. Looks like you're going to double your money. The problem is in order to get the cost of the book to be as low as twenty five dollars for example you might have to print a whole bunch of them and just keep the math simple. I'll say you have to print a thousand so twenty five dollars per book a thousand a year into it twenty five thousand dollars and let's say that you can sell them for fifty dollars if you work out the math you realize you'll have to sell five hundred books just in order to recuperate. Your initial investment of the twenty. Five Thousand Dollars. It takes to produce the book and by the way it may not be your twenty five thousand dollars. It may be the twenty five thousand dollars of the publisher. It's the same thing they're only going to make that financial gamble. If it makes sense for them so the question becomes. Do you have the ability to sell five hundred books well again to make it simple? Let's talk about self publishing so you put up to twenty five thousand dollars. You produce the thousand bucks now. You've gotta go out and sell them. Well you start with your friends and acquaintances and your family. But of course a bunch of them are GonNa want a book for free so they may or may not give you fifty dollars a book because after all they're your friends and family etc and so let's be generous. Let's say you have two hundred friends and family members all of whom are willing to pay you fifty dollars for your book okay. That's two hundred out of the five hundred that you have to sell in order to break. Even you got three hundred books left to go now who you going to sell those two. You've already exhausted all the easy contacts. You have your friends and family. Now you've got to go out to the general public. Somehow which means you've gotta get bookstores involved which means distributors which means that the Reseller the bookstore is GonNa WanNa make some money and if you work through a distributor. They're gonNA WANNA make some money so you're no longer GONNA get fifty dollars book. You're going to get probably maybe twenty five dollars a book which is barely going to cover the cost of printing and binding. So you're not gonNA make any money on those now sudden you have to sell way more than five hundred books in order to recover your initial investment. Making money with a book is almost an impossible proposition. Now you can. And here's where it gets seductive. There are photographers. There are publishers. Who MAKE MONEY SELLING BOOKS. But the reason they do is because they have already an existing huge market when a famous photographer ansel Adams or well. Let's take somebody who's contemporary to take. Steve McCurry of Steve McCurry wants to produce a book. The greatest chances are he's going to make money on that book because he Steve McCurry because there are lots and lots of people who are fans of his well. How many fans to you have? If you're a very famous individual then maybe you can make money with books but probably for most of us. That's not a realistic assumption. So making money has gotta cross that one off the list because it's probably not going to happen in fact it's probably going to cost money. You might say well. I'll do a blurb book okay. Fine but you're not gonNA make any money on a blurb book because the book that sells for fifty dollars. That's produced blurbs. Probably GONNA cost you fifty dollars to produce it at blurb and so there's no margin there there's no way for you to make money might get your workout in the world but making money through books is almost an impossibility and less. You're already famous. Which always reminds me of that. Great Mark Twain quote when he said banks are always happy to loan you money when you can prove that you don't need it.

"Ansel Parker talk about my dad. Charles Feelings perjure. I'd like you all to meet Ansel Parker. He's named after a very famous photographer. When Angela and I had spoke it was just shy of a year after losing his father. Charles when listening to speak about his father I had a feeling that Charles was a little complicated. Probably like most people but I had it confirmed when Angela said it to you. He was a complicated man. A son of the sixties. He made full discharge of his single years. Excellent Cook Excellent cuss. Her he was my favourite. Drinking Buddy Christian was a funny dude. He was a dreamer. He did not get to see. Those ambitions come to fruition. He comes from era where men just don't show emotion. You just put your head down. Provide for your family. Do what you need to do to do. And then you just die. He himself was a mama's boy I born of his parents on the first board of my parents so the the last few years that he was alive living with me were very important because I tasked myself with learning as much as I could about him. I regret not recording on paper over according in video but their brain. And that's that's that's half the battle either sometime before father's Day of Twenty Eighteen Charles and stopped taking his medicine and seem convinced that the deal that he had been working on that fell through in May essentially Charles had made a choice that he didn't want to be honored anymore after being found and suffering the stroke as Father Charles was put into a Rehab facility but he got the call that his father needed to return to the hospital and it wasn't good. He passed away on his own terms. He had decided that he wanted to die sometime. Before father's Day of last year I got a phone call from his lawyer that he was admitted to the hospital. He had stopped taking his kidney medicine in heart medicine so he collapsed on the side of the road admitted to the hospital refuse. Medication had a stroke survived the stroke and after that he voluntarily starved himself and refused medicine so watching him die from June to September was something I would never want anyone to experience ever in.

Mediterranean Diet Grabs the Top Spot for Best Healthy Lifestyle Plan
"There is a topic that you WanNa talk talk about this week. Yeah absolutely. We're talking about the Mediterranean Diet today. Okay because it's ranked number one by the US News News Best diets what the. US News does. is they evaluate thirty five different diets and they get input from a panel of experts. Experts including doctors nutritionists Dietitians and people who specialize in diabetes heart health human behavior and weight loss and they They basically look at criteria to rank the diets based on whether they meet the USDA my plate guidelines for calories portions vitamins and minerals as well as whether they help or hinder weight loss and also they have to be relatively easy to follow so so the Mediterranean Diet as ranked number one this year for twenty twenty but it also ranked number one last year and it has been in the either the a number one or number two position in previous years as well so The Mediterranean Diet to me is. It's it's almost kind of like like a no nonsense. Overall healthy approach to eating and living in. And what's really interesting is when we talk about the Mediterranean Diet. Hi and unfortunately the word Diet is in the name but I kind of wish. It wasn't because it's really a it's a lifestyle. It's a lifestyle and in fact when you read about doubted you see that. It doesn't just only incorporate the food aspects but it also talks about The lifestyle of having you you know being active in your life and also about Community sharing meals with family and that type of thing so the whole idea of family dinners is even even a part of the whole philosophy of a Mediterranean diet lifestyle so And it's been around a while the one one really interesting being History on the Mediterranean Diet was that you know it's been research since the nineteen fifties early findings emerged out of something called the seven countries study which began in nineteen fifty seven and it was. It was directed by a A researcher named Ansel keys from the University of Minnesota and he brought together researchers from all over the world to collectively steady the medical questions of the time concerning specifically cardiovascular diseases among people who were living in countries with a variety of different traditional eating patterns in lifestyles. And what what came out of this. You know there were. He looked at twenty two different countries. But what he presented in his research was seven of them and They found that the healthiest people were living in Crete which is one of the islands in the Mediterranean region so by the Mediterranean reflects the food and social social customs of people that live in countries that have a coastline along the Mediterranean Sea. So this is going to include places like Italy Greece Spain Inter in Turkey so so when we think of Mediterranean. That's you know the countries that were thinking of and then also the food and customs that come from that region agent and this goes back centuries so recent research shows like what are the types of foods that they eat and not only that they they look look at if someone is living in the United States and they're following these same dietary principles and lifestyle principles that they can get similar results as what have been seen in the studies of people who have been following this way of life for for generations. So What are you know? Everyone probably wants to know. So what's included and and we eat. And what do they do. The question is what do they eat in. What are they? Don't eat right. Well that's a really good. That's really good okay. So what's really kind of fascinating is there really is no one exact Mediterranean diet because the guidelines reflect different foods from all these different countries. But what what we have done is we've sort of Honed it down And and looked at it so Aside from the fact that processed foods are not included did In the Mediterranean Diet. This is a very almost like pure processed free Iva Diet in fact you know if we wanted to make a comparison between the process free lifestyle described in my book. The science of skinny and the Mediterranean Diet is very similar You know there might just be different difference in portions and that type of thing So aside from that What's really kind of cool about it is? It's kind of unrestrictive and simple. The calories are not a concern. The foundation is built upon anti inflammatory plant based meals with a focus on deeply colored the fruits and vegetables especially the green leafy types such as Chard Kale and spinach and the non starchy type. Vegetables like artichokes folks cauliflower eggplant tomatoes And then a lots of different herbs and spices like Basil Bay leaves Fennel Garlic Parsley Lee Rosemary. And sage and lots of beans beans tend to be A A focus in the Mediterranean Diet and less red meat in in fact in in the most of the Mediterranean traditional societies Red Meat or pork was only eaten. Minimally like maybe yeah well well not only even just like a side but also like only maybe once a month or on a special occasion like a birthday or a wedding or something so it was not a regular learn every day food and so then that still is tantamount part of the Mediterranean Diet. And why it's been used a lot of heart health studies. So it's you know because people who have cardiovascular disease and need to improve their diet Eliminating the saturated fat from Red Meat's is one one of the the keys to that so Is consuming more fish. Is that a an aspect of the Mediterranean diet or no yes in fact fish is one of the main animal foods. Okay in the Mediterranean diet it does include some dairy But in much smaller amounts than what like our USDA guidelines would recommend which USDA guidelines. Tell us to eat three dairy servings a day in the Mediterranean Diet it's very minimal And in those countries and look look in the traditional diet it was mainly from either goat's milk or sheep's milk and they would make that into cheese so they didn't sit there Erin. Drink glasses of milk right so In the US it you know. The Mediterranean diet is recommending low fat dairy which I would probably not recommend that I would recommend whole fat dairy but in the minimal quantities that We they see in the Mediterranean Diet. Do you mentioned that in the science of skinny I do okay. Yeah I say whole milk is is preferred but you don't need to consume a lot of it and it's actually kind of optional. Really no one needs to eat dairy And I think we see that in the Mediterranean diet that it's it's very minimally focused and so you could even leave it out One thing I like about the Mediterranean Diet also is that it's the percentages of the what we call the macronutrients as the fats carbohydrates and the protein we see a higher air percentage of good fat. And of course olive oil is the main source of good fat olive. Oil Fish and nuts are where most of the fat in the Diet comes from and these are all unsettled basically monounsaturated and also some polyunsaturated from fish like the Omega threes Are are where most of the fat comes from. And it's about forty percent of the caloric intake per day is coming from fats which is higher than in what the USDA guidelines recommend but yet we see really good health with people following this on the flip side. Though you have the other part of it is that we have you know all all. The carbohydrates are complex. Meaning it's from beans or from starchy type vegetables or from whole grains so we. I don't see any processed grains in the Mediterranean Diet so the complex carbohydrate percentages are are lower than what we would see in the USDA guidelines and then the protein is quite moderate anywhere between Fifteen to twenty percent of calories coming from protein so most Mediterranean meals. Actually look. Vegetarian is that they're very plant. Centered yes so you would see you know. Mostly vegetables on the plate Probably some some beans or grains and then very minimal amounts of fish or You know if if red meat is consumed. It's like it's like I say it's minimal and it's not often in the in the month so Now a couple of other things they also include red wine oh And that is for the polyphenols that are in the skins of the grapes. And when they're fermented into wine it increases the concentration nation of those polyphenols and so that tends to also be quite heart healthy and lots of 'em antioxidants. The polyphenols are antioxidants. so however it's not unlimited The recommendation is. It's one five ounce glass of red wine for women per day and two I five ounce glasses for men per day and that's the recommendation but of course one thing I always tell people is if you're not already a consumer of wine you you don't have to add this into follow the Mediterranean Diet. It's it's it's there but it's optional. You mean the the wine right the wind like you know you you know some people say oh. I don't drink red wine or I don't drink at all right so I can't do that and that's fine. You don't have to do that. That's the other thing about. It is very adaptable. You could make gluten free you. Can you know you can adjust for different food sensitivities that or food preferences. This is that a person would want to do so. I'm not surprised that it's ranked number

"Dollars over three day opening weekend at six hundred eighteen not six thousand not sixty thousand. That's three number six hundred eighteen dollars. As we started Ansel Elgort Taryn Eggerton Emma Roberts and well Kevin Spacey. And so the headlines over the past few days have been making fun of the fact that Kevin Spacey now disgrace falling all his inappropriate behavior to confide in house of cards has started a movie that had a disastrous opening and. In one level, it's maybe a slightly different genuis to put all comes space. The billionaire boys club shot two and a half years ago. It was being dumped into theaters. It's been released at the same time. There was never gonna, make a lot of money was always his at Esther. It was always going to be that was swept under the rug as fast as possible, but because comes in it, it becomes the story Kevin Spacey and continued box office declined. So it's just it went from being a movie that was just going to be a footnote to a movie. That's just another embarrassment. Another chapter ended downfall Kevin Spacey and but he's dragging down everybody else with him. Some curious what you guys think is this story about Kevin Spacey or is just a label being placed onto a movie that otherwise would never be noticed? Well, I mean, I do think you're right. It's I, it is a move that would otherwise not gotten noticed. They played in ten screens. If you do the math here Jakup it looks like you know sixty two. Sixty maybe sixty to seventy people probably saw this movie. And then if you divide that per screen, that's what like six or seven people per screen over a week period or weekend period that that's pretty. That's pretty horrible. Like it's horrible. Most most movies I go to see 'em local AMC theater have more than that in one screening, you know in like he's a really small movies, not with the stars like Kevin Spacey. I'm all about Dunkin Kevin Spacey, but let's let's let's trash man. He he, he deserves it. I'm not entirely convinced that people were avoiding because it's Kevin Spacey avoiding it because an Ansel Elgort movie with a very bad title. But that's just me. Actually, I was when I was looking up access. So morbidly fascinated by this just horrible performance that I was looking up the stories based on a real story and also had a a TV movie that was released. I think in the nineties and that was, I think, really funny with the same title as well. Billionaire boys club. And that was really funny to me because it I don't know if that one did any better with a TV movie, but it's not a is not uncommon title, I guess. I mean, I personally didn't even know this movie was out, so I kind of agree that, you know, even though I have no problem mocking Kevin, Spacey I do think is more a case of no one actually even is aware this buoy exists like I've seen zero advertisement for it. So yeah, when you have people working for a movie website, fulltime who have not seen any advertisements for movie that probably tells you something, but, okay, let's move onto our last final stories. I up mister robot season four. Is that going to be the final season HT? What do we know. According to star Christian Slater, it may be the thought the final season. So in an interview with collider, Christian Slater says that he believes the upcoming season will be the last season which kind of is in line with creator Sam 's males predictions from a few years ago that the show would last for five seasons depending on USA. So Slater said, s mail always said it was going to be somewhere in that zone. He didn't want to go any further than what he could creative the contribute to that story line. So I think that season four will be it. So it kind of makes sense because Sam 'Small originally a pitch the story as feature film, and he always had an idea for where the story would would end with the show. And the third season kind of felt like it was hurtling towards some sort of ending anyways..

"The TV actor, Brad, Pitt plays the stunt double and in a little bit of clever friendly casting, it seems as though Leo got Al Pacino a bit part out, Pacino plays Leo's characters agent, Marvin Schwartz. So there are all kinds of photos of the three of them in period costume. I know it's incredible. So we always been doing that. He's been in Santro pay, and he's also I don't know how he finds the time to fly back to Malibu for a few beach volleyball games. The first one took place on the fourth of July at a party hosted by Leo and Sean Penn. And there were all sorts of photos of them playing beach, volleyball with a bunch of girls. Beautiful girls Cammie was there, and then a few leap a few weeks later. Leo's photographed again on a different beach in Malibu playing volleyball with Ansel Elgort s- a weird one to me like, what's the connection there? I know. And everybody reported it including the metro saying the baby driver star war, a pair of blue shorts, mirrored sunglasses in beaded necklace for the game while Leo chose to keep his white shirt on. I like that was a little bit of like body shaming or slumping on the metros fired. I feel the same, whatever the points at the end of the game, we declare everyone a winner for being part of a team with an Ayla Stor. So the metro finished off that report miraculously e managed to track down Ansel Elgort from good journal of all know. He was promoting some sort of fragrance. And at the end of like, asking him all about the fragrance, they, they wondered how he ended up on me. Beach playing volleyball is Leo, and I love how casual his answer was. He said l. a.'s just like that. It's random. If you go to LA you end up with people like that. I'm from New York. That's not a normal thing for me. So he makes it seem like you get off a flight. You get your bag at LA. A black takes you to the beach for Leo's waiting for you. Like, Josh. I'm sure you've had similar experiences coming out such. A funny, like non answer because like new end up with people like that. Like as if that's like a just everyday occurrence. Right. It's some. I'm intrigued thou by Leo. Maybe this is I feel like this needs to be fact checked, but I feel like it's interesting to me. He wants to do such like enough Luttig pursuit. Like I feel like I usually associated with just like lounging on a yacht, like smoking cigars vaping, like going to, you know what I mean? Like beach, volleyball teams a little bit unexpected of greed. I know it doesn't quite fit, especially given how hot it's been in Los Angeles is really hot. Like, I don't know. It doesn't seem like his kind of thing, but maybe something else going on here we don't know about. Well, I feel like even the Daily Mail felt that way too because they go into this long explanation of how Leo dropped out of school and was a child actor. So he never got to play team sports at schools kids. So that was the rationale that like maybe he's getting into a now psychological enough of it's so weird the owl, Leo trying for this in other episodes. Like if Al married Lucia's under name, right? If he if Al married her and Leo married Cami, our would be Leo's father in law. Yes, that is weird. Anyone like there's just like so much weirdness to me about this whole thing. Cami Al became a stepfather. I dunno, I just don't really get it right. And I think it's interesting that Ansel Sean Penn, getting in the mix, what's his connection? All of this. It's very strange. The people Leo hangs out with. It's almost like he'll just hang out with any celebrity. Oh, there's another beach viable game the summer with him, and I'm Scott Eastwood, Clint some rights. I know it's like, is there bat signal that just goes up. I really don't get. I like it though. Kind of feel like he's like, I feel like his summer seems to be very active for him.
