The History Of Exorcism
"Tony us and carry the show where we don't just report on fringe science spirituality and claims of the paranormal. We take part ourselves. Yup when they make the claims we show up so you don't have to carry poppy and i'm becoming an exorcist me to a and so can you at the international school system bernadette dad too. That's my for everything now. Oh are you willing to give it to bob larsen. I'm willing to rent it to bob larson. Yeah you're welcome bob. Yeah bobo what is it that. Let's see your outing a little bit of a syncopation bad about up. But i'm different. Now you repeat all right. We'll know is asking myself if that was different from what you did. I don't know i anyway. it's beautiful. Thank you and we have taken. The course work to become exercises. We've told you a little bit about it in our previous episodes but now we're in deep dive mode. Yeah man. let's get into the history of exercises so put on your exorcism hat. Your student hat last time we left off at the end of level. One course one. I know big cliffhanger yes so. Let's talk about tanger absolutely. Let's talk about christian and pre christian exorcism. Okay well this is module two of level one apprentice level. Oh okay you're making the sound like a very long journey of the exorcist. They have all these like sort of sub descriptions. When you get in there it's not very easily delineated. Your but yes so. You're talking about macho to within level one to be fair level. One is synonymous with the apprentice level. Correct so there's going to be ten modules. And as i was telling you earlier today all ten modules basically amount to exercise been around a long time. It's not a new thing. I'm bob larsen. Just summed it all up for our show for show. Thank you so much. So they're christian and pre christian extra schism part is about how there were indeed exorcisms before jesus even right before. There were such things as christians. So don't be thinking that exorcism is just this new up start phenomenon or that. Bob invented So he let us know that egypt. Persians canaanites all had x.'s rituals. Yes mostly they were incantations or enchantment. There's always going to be kind of a rough line around exorcism as posession versus exorcism as occurs. That's influencing you or maybe laid upon an object so there's kind of squishy lines around all of this. I wonder if he would acknowledge that. Sometimes people did them for health ailments that we would now just acknowledge our health elements. Yes yes. yeah. I think bob's pretty weird that little bit of god of the gaps where god when used to explain things that we just don't understand yet like lightning for example like when a lot of churches and the late seventeen hundred started installing lightning rods. A lot of people were upset. Like oh well this is going to subvert. The will of god share so then when science steps in and explains that oh actually charged particles in quick energy transfer. And hey look you know you can actually take control of that aspect of weather. Then god stops being used as an explanation right. That's what i mean. When i say god of the gaps oh god gets increasingly small and one's world view if one defines god based on what we don't know the more we know the less god is invoked to explain. They should make that at the. Bottom of the nbc. The more you know you need to invokes to explain what are bypass about about so. While bob didn't used that terminology. I think he realizes yeah. Ok some things now. We do explain with medical science or just an understanding of the natural world and very late in this game hill. Really get into mental health issues. That definitely although i think he'd draw a hardline around anything that happened. During the jesus years everything jesus healed. It was whatever she said it was the bible. Says you're walking on water. You turned water into wine or something else involving water then. Yeah that was legit because the bible is absolutely correct about everything i was gonna say. Is there any area where. Bob is not a scriptural literalist. Oh good question you know. I feel like that is always hard to define. Because some people say they are and then as he listened to them describe their beliefs. But if you look through a certain lens you'll see that at the time they were encoding. They're under yeah virgin actually There's gonna be all kinds of ringing. But i feel for the most part bob pretty literal. Yeah he doesn't have to do a lot of back flipping to defend his literal biblical azam. So one thing. He said that i thought was interesting. Is basically everybody alive. During that time was an exorcist like it was kind of taken for granted. Something anybody could do if there are spirits in this world you talk to the spirits right being and when you live in that world where everything around you is kind of controlled by the whims of the gods and the demons. You have to deal with them and placate them. So you mentioned in ancient babylon you had priests like creating a clay figure of a demon and then smashing it. In hinduism you had demons and demigods. Who were understood to attack living beings in greece. You had the oracle of delphi and they were supposedly possessed to tell the future Andy pointed to other which and shamans and various cultures that have had the equivalent of these beliefs
Saved from Gods Wrath
"God's anger doesn't occur nearly as often as readers of the moment. Might, think it occurs less often in the Bible and when it does occur, it's surprising. So God's anger appears first in the Bible with Moses in a conversation that he's having about how he wants Moses Represent Him and Moses refuses five times over. That's the first time goes angry. So that, itself is beginning a pattern that God's anger in the Old Testament is most consistently expressed towards the people that he's calling to represent him and the famous stories like the flood or Sodom and Gomorrah. They are acts of God's Justice Against Evil in neither, one of those stories has got angry in the flood God is overcome with grief and sorrow. So as the story line of the Bible Develops God invest in one particular group of people to be his representatives to the world, and they are the ones with whom God gets most angry most often in the story line of the Bible just like how we tend to get the most angry and frustrated with the people that we are most invested in relational. If you search a concordance new search out all the time God gets angry at Israel. You'll find a few dozen stories and you'll find a pretty consistent response. How does God expresses anger and its most consistently demonstrated with the phrase and God handed them over who gave them over into the hands of their enemies. So God hands Israel over to the consequences that are destructive and ruinous, but it's the choices that they made that got them. There Motza, says it's got hiding his face. And the Prophets as they Jeremiah Zeki Oil, they developed the big way and the bad guys that Israel's handed over to because of their faithlessness to the Covenant is a Syria and Babylon. Syria we didn't talk about this Isaiah calls a Syria the the Rod of God's anger. Does if Syria is the instrument of God's anchor, which is to hand Israel over to their bad decisions. So when Jesus enters the scene, he sees himself in the role of another one of these profits but also as the Covenant, God, of Israel, himself pursuing his people again. Warning them that if they don't accept his way of being Israel among the nations that they are going to yet again, be subject to God's anger, which will be to be handed over to the power of from. Jesus warned that this would happen and when he wrote in to Jerusalem for Passover, he intentionally provoked the rulers of Jerusalem challenging their authority claiming that he was Israel's trump thority and when he began to talk about what he thought was going to happen it becomes clear that he knew that he was going to die. In fact, he went to Jerusalem specifically to poke the bear. To provoke the leaders to a showdown knowing that they would kill him but it's not a tragedy. Jesus is in Jesus, is he is and uses this phrase multiple times in that. Passover week that he's going to drink the Cup of God's anger, which is a key prophetic prophetic image for being Israel being handed over to pagan oppressors to foreign foreign armies say that against him he's going to drink. The. Cup of God's anger. Yes. Which is a very particular testament metaphor for Israel being overwhelmed and conquered by foreign armies and pegeen oppressors. So the put a fine point on it when Jesus uses that phrase you think he specifically thinking about the fact that he's going to be killed by Roman oppressors. Yeah and the and the corrupt leaders of Israel that are in league with them Yes I think that if you just study the scriptural hyperlink, the Jesus making their I, think it's but unavoidably to the conclusion, and that's precisely what he goes to Jerusalem to do, and that's why he stages his protest in the temple courts in full view of the leaders of the temple. But also in view of the Roman governor because the Roman governor had vested interest in keeping the peace in the temple courts. So Jesus is trial the moment of these two Jesus standing on trial an innocent. Jesus son of God and then guilty. Jesus boss, who's The a rebel against Rome and the innocent Jesus who was trying to tell Israel to love their Roman enemies, and then the guilty Jesus who tried to kill the Roman enemies go free and Jesus intentionally goes to his death on behalf of his guilty people and this is what he meant by drinking the Cup of God's anger the anger there is simultaneously the the wrath of Rome and the the wrath of Israel's leaders. Another important strand in here is Jesus as understanding of his death and confrontation as being a cosmic confrontation with. Demonic spiritual powers that have hijacked the kingdoms of this world to be instruments of injustice as opposed to justice, and he believes that he's confronting the powers of
Jesus - the one who would drink the cup of God’s wrath
"So. All of this has huge implications for how we should talk and think about how Jesus understood his death. What did Jesus think his death meant how did he talk about it and how does it fit into this will conversation. So remember the meaning of the Cup of God's anger in in the prophets there's an important story in Matthew. Chapter. Twenty. Where two of his disciples their mom comes up to him to Jesus and asks if two of her sons can be Jesus as like special special princes when he becomes the King of Israel helicopter parents. Just, be a good mom. So. Wealth is great. So. Will you know command in your kingdom that my Tucson's will sit on your right and left Jesus answers. Sorry you just simply don't know what you're asking for. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink and the two men said to him? Oh yes we're able and he said to them you know you actually will drink my cup but to sit on my right hand or left sorry, that's not my authority give but to be on my right and my left that is for those whom it has been prepared by my father this is a little hint forward to criminals. Jesus. Yes. But to Jesus thrown in other words when comes in his kingdom, he will have one on his right and one on his left and when in the Gospels is that moment happen? Why did it all the Gospel Authors? Tell us that he had one on his right and one on his left when he was Chris when he's crucified yes. That's right which is a type of upside down and thrown. Yeah. That's right. So already here he's hinting that the cup refers to his coming execution. And many of his disciples will actually lay down their lives for their witness to Jesus I. think that's what it means. You will drink my cup, but his point is that the way I'm going to become king over Israel over the nation's is by drinking the cup and there's only one place. Where that Jesus getting that image from. But the the passages we looked at in a previous episode, which is Isaiah Fifty one Jeremiah twenty-five in Psalm seventy five with three main cup of passages of Gaza. If they were familiar with the Hebrew. Bible would they know exactly what he was saying here? Are you able to what they have understood that? Well, yeah. In the moment in the actual moment of the conversation. Yeah. I don't know Jesus was a ridler he spoke in scriptural language and the riddles all the time the Gospel authors want the reader to pick it up because Jesus is going to use the image again in a couple of chapters. So what is he saying what did authors want us to pick up? Are you able to? Remind me again about drinking the Cup yet drinking the cup is what Jeremiah says will happen to Jerusalem when it surrounded by Babylonian armies because they're king broke a treaty with Babylon and they've been unfaithful to God. So drinking the cup, is another way of saying God handing you over to the consequences of your decisions, which ultimately it seems like our death throughout the biblical story line, not not as in the consequences. Of Sin are death in the trite way we think about it. But in the story line being handed over is kind of simultaneous with and specifically being handed over to be conquered by pagan armies. What would it mean then for Jesus to drink the of? That's exactly right. You gotTa keep on Reading You gotTa let the story. Tell you what she's means because he brings it up again in the garden Africa semi. Well, actually skipping his story at Passover. Right at the last supper when he brings out the cup and he says, This Cup is the new covenant in my blood. So he gives them a cup to drink and they're the this cup imagery is really rich. He's borrowing imagery from Covenant Making Ceremonies and the Old Testament likening his blood, the blood of the animals that would be offered up to God in the making. Of Covenant. Then after that, he goes out to the Garden of Disseminating Matthew Twenty six and in the in the garden, what he's praying is this it's in Verse Thirty Nine in Matthew Twenty. Six He says three times Matthew says, Jesus, prayed my father it's possible May. This Cup be taken from me but not my desire, but your desire be done so Jesus keeps talking about. His coming death as drinking the Cup on behalf of his people. That's his conception of death and drinking the cup in say Isaiah fifty one is image of experiencing the consequences of God turning his face Yup and those consequences are God allowing foreign armies to overtake his Covenant People. That's the concrete expression that it takes in history and so Jesus is using this phrase. We know it's intense. We know he's excited about it. Yeah. So Jesus is going to experience. God turning his face away. Jesus knows that if Israel turns away from his message that they're going to be destroyed. He's been making that crystal clear all throughout his warnings of Judgment. He intentionally goes to Jerusalem for Passover during the feast week when they celebrate their liberation from a pagan oppressor Egypt. And he intentionally goes there and he poked the bear, it doesn't just poke the bear. He likes stabs the bear jabs at for a week. You're. Provoking, the temple leaders, the city leaders I you know he's intentionally creating problem and he keeps saying throughout this week, I'm going to drink the cup. I'm coming here to drink the cup. So Jesus is going to put himself in the place of faithless covenant, breaking Israel and experienced defeat at the hands of pegging armies on their behalf. If, you just think through with all these images mean to drink. The Cup means to be conquered by PAGANO, presser job because of covenant violation Israel here specifically Jerusalem the warning is given. That Rome is going to burn it down and takeover death destruction and. What Jesus is predicting that's going to happen is he's going to experience that he's going to experience what it's like to be. destroyed. By the Roman oppressor. That's right. He's GonNa Drink That Cup
Illegal Raves Fill 'Cultural Void' in Britain Amidst Coronavirus
"The night time economy has been hit hard by the pandemic nightclubs have been forced to close putting deejays and promoters out of. There that just because the clubs are closed, doesn't mean the party's destroyed. In Britain legal raves are enjoying something of a revival. Frankly right throughout Britain for the economist, the met police has recorded more than thousand raves in the last few months and many people are saying this is kind of a throwback to the late eighty s and early ninety s back. Then illegal acid house parties started happening all over the country. What are these raves actually like the traditional stereotype, his house techno music taking place in an abandoned warehouse or something things are a bit different. Now over the summer at least they've tended to happen in big outdoor spaces, kind of in the middle of nowhere, and the kind of music really varies depending on the event to so now do still play House and techno, but also are and be drum and bass a few weeks ago. There was a big rave in a tiny Welsh village called Babylon three and a half thousand people turned up but it's really all because of the closure of nightclubs. Choose to the pandemic lockdown as revive that spirit of acid house and really hard and Ravers who have nowhere else to go have turned to illegal parties again, and he's the revival of raving entirely result of the pandemic largely. But even before the pandemic rates for making a bit of a comeback covid of accelerated that trend, the revival was a result of expensive rents in big cities, which made it harder for nightclubs on cheap nights and also precarious operating licenses to big venues of how to pass that cost onto clubbers entry to print works, which is a big factory turned club in southeast London. Forty pounds just for a night and drugs and much less tolerated to oversee an illegal rave while they're much cheaper because have to deal with licensing and venue costs, and also there are no rules because it's illegal he can do whatever you like these ours you say illegal raves. So how the authorities cracking down on them authorities are having a really hard time trying to stop them because they will happening at such a low level. It wasn't too much for problem of there being A. Resurgence. Now, the approach, the the police and the government seems to be taking is deterrent in recent weeks new finds of being introduced by the government of up to ten thousand pounds for the organizers of these parties. But the big fines aren't having that much of an effect because it's very difficult to work out who's organizing them in the first place and that's because they're so secretive locations are often kept quiet until the last minute and even then details only shared with a ten dis. Through. Private channels like what's happened instagram messages, which is actually quite similar to the nineteen eighty s and ninety s when people would have to phone number from a phone box to find out where a policy was happening all the legal alternatives for UK Ravens than there aren't really at the moment. So in recent weeks, some music events have started up again but much more tame that kind of socially distance concerts happening in traditional venues, some promoters have tried to organize legal socially distance raves. I spoke to one organizer who said he put on the first, which is very early lockdown. He had seven hundred and fifty people applies account but could only let in forty people even then the police still turned up and try to shut it down until it was explained that it was going on legally this week actually new restrictions which limit social gatherings are the indoor or outdoors to six people have come in making it even more difficult to organize one of these events safely and legally. Six people doesn't sound like much of a rave. Is there a safe way to do this independent nick? Honestly not really it's obviously very hard socially distant set arrive. There have been the helping of criticism within the music industry of so-called Plague Raves in countries where venues have reopened as they haven't in Britain yet nightclubs have been criticized on any kind of events at all contributing to spikes in resurgences in the virus. One case of this is in south, Korea which did. Very well, it containing the virus. But when things thought reopened a number of cases with trace back to to some nightclubs in Seoul and that led to a huge amount of criticism within the press and in society as well. Just dougherty runs legal acid house parties in London, and he's one of the many deejays who calling people out for throwing playgroups

Several, ancient Roman and Greek writers wrote about the garden though. Some scholars argue that the gardens were actually built by an Assyrian Queen or the King of Niniveh. We don't know for sure because despite the gardens being one of the seven wonders of the world. We can't find it to study it. It's believed to have been destroyed by an earthquake in the first century C E. So why were they called? The hanging gardens were the garden beds suspended. was everything planted in hanging baskets? Bonus fact, the largest hanging basket planter in the world is on the side of the hotel. Indigo in the Paddington Section of London. It measures ten by twenty feet or three by six meters and weighs upwards of half a tonne. Now the hanging gardens didn't really hang so much as they over Hong or draped and their defense, the draping garden doesn't sound nearly as appealing. Accepting the premise that some royal or another wanted to build a royalty grand garden in the desert, it was going to take careful planning and serious engineering to pull that off. The structure was a cigarette or a stepped pyramid with walls between twenty and seventy five feet high, depending on which ancient account you're reading. So picture a walled city in the desert.

Is it Selfish to Pay Yourself First? by Joel of 5AM Joel
"Am Joel Dot Com. When you hear, pay yourself first. What do you think of? It sounds like something. A rich and greedy person would say. Let's break it down. Pay Equals something money related yourself. I equals something selfish, the complete opposite of what our parents taught us. Okay now let's see what happens. If we include the words in a full sentence. Pay Yourself First, so you can help more people later. Pay Yourself first a little bit, and then pay others allot. Your family will never starve if you pay yourself first. Giving becomes easier when you pay yourself first. doesn't sound so selfish anymore. Maybe the people preaching this are onto something. You may be familiar with to pay yourself first rule for saving money and growing wealth I. I read it in the old book. The richest man in Babylon the book tells a story that makes you rethink your priorities when distributing your hard earned money, most people out there are living on a tight budget. They have their income minus all their expenses and afterward they WANNA save every cent possible with what's left over the problem. Problem is what's leftover. What's left over might be a decent amount, or it might be a little amount, but most of the time it's not very much or nothing at all. Saving might be a priority for people, but for some reason it's usually the very last category to get paid. If saving money is a true priority, you need to treat it as such I drew a quick illustration in this post showing the difference. You may have noticed the pay yourself. First method involves both pre tax and post tax savings. We can chat another time about avoiding Uncle Sam. Paying yourself first insurance. You never skip out on your savings. No matter your income, no matter your age, no matter your debts or loans in life paying yourself first out of every paycheck means you are consistently growing wealth. Time. Pay Yourself first is not always a money related saying is, isn't time supposed to be our most precious asset just like money? Most people have good intentions of saving their time. We constantly learn to be more efficient and create shortcuts wherever possible to gain more free time, but again most people have the what's leftover mentality with their time. Although personal time might sit at priority number one in their brain, it's the lowest paid category each day just by shifting the clock and moving priorities around the person who follows the pay yourself first method. He's never missing out on personal time. The always have spare time. Do you know anyone like this? I know you're probably sick of hearing. My five am stories. You might even argue that you're most productive. Hours are between nine and eleven pm each night. If that's honestly true for you, I'm jealous of your gift. giving. So far, we've covered making sure that you're always paying enough time and money to yourself, and it may still sound a bit too selfish. What about giving to others? It's a common belief that rich people are greedy, and that people with too much time or lazy, but life is taught me the opposite, and so I've developed a theory. When you're in abundance, you usually share more when my wife and I I moved to Los Angeles. We lived on the outskirts of a very fancy

If you're going to be if you've been the vice president you've already been in the White House if you can't pull higher or do you hire an Iowa. How're you supposed to win against Donald Trump and he gets very very defensive about it and he basically says like have you ever been to a caucus and she's like yeah I have and she's like oh you're lying so I called her very interesting name so just to be clear that you lying doug? You're you lying dog faced pony soldier. Yeah I guess I read online. He's quoting like John Wayne movie from one hundred years ago people said Malarkey Yeah Malarkey is yeah maybe the.

"Babylon be best of coffee table book. I saw the notes right there. Oh yeah and it's pre-order it you can pre-order now. It's not out yet yeah just understand. It's not out for a while and it says preorder that means before order. You're like the person getting in line per star wars movie like months before it comes out. Yeah a lot of camping gear. Most people are mocking you. Yeah you're camping out outside the Babylon be online wine store and it will probably probably be out in the middle of this year but we don't have a firm date so yeah early summer issues were aiming for but who knows who knows nobody. God knows. And that's all that matters all right and now story one Kyle you speak. You cannot literally wrap your head around something you would get hurt. That's a good point surly smart very smart point that she did she try that did she want did she try to. I didn't read this. She yeah she demonstrated that you can't get confusing so we had a writers meeting yesterday and we were discussing how to attack this. AFC because because yeah we'll see it had this beautiful beautiful comment section. Thank you about bringing up the poverty draft and this idea of a bootstrap this idea and this metaphor of a bootstrap started off as a joke. Because it's a physical impossibility to lift yourself golf up by a bootstrap by your shoelaces. It's physically impossible. The whole thing is a joke. Speaks for itself mic drop. I just love that. She specifically mentioned shoelaces right after. You did that article about the shooter. Yeah that was the thing. We were all laughing so hard because we did that stupid. Our coach we already explained the joke. Maybe a two podcasts. In a row we talking. Yeah but You know the joke being anyway. I don't want to say it again but explain it. The third time wrangler sell their shoelaces. 'cause the articles so stupid actually playing Super Meta joke but anyway and then she said it's just an awesome that we write the absolute most over the top thing we can think of and the chief of fills it and it's just absolutely wonderful curious. where the etymology of lifting yourself up by your bootstraps? Like where does that come. It was the actual. I had heard that before that well. The point is that you can't you can't but you know any any idiom breaks down when you think about it. Yeah well yeah. We try to list off the other day wrapping your head around. Something was the best one. So let's get our wives opinions on destiny. What are what are your thoughts on? You may speak she represents all your interests now now my interest. This is nice because now that the women are attacking US see. Yeah it safer. It's no longer problematic that we're just a bunch of white males laughing about a brave woman of color except for it feels like we're commanding them to speak to. We are well. I personally get all my news from from the Babylon be because I know that it's it's real. It's serious anything I've ever learned about. AFC has been from the Babylon so in the Babylon beat. Tells me she's dumb. I'm like she's dumb. Just go deer. She's is like CNN on my turn like here's your news. Here's here's the news. You're allowed to watch a very well informed and intelligent wife Ethan. I'm like Kim Jong Il of the House. I have one new source. I love her uh-huh to see and then also when I speak I have a voice actor speak for me. The deeper booming voice. And there's all these myths about you that have evolved over the years sing songs about blowing missiles and my enemies one time dead wrestled a bear and killed it like this. Aw is like a song about it if the marching in with their guns the the Nicole Hassle Muscle doesn't interesting. It's wild you guys coats family. I have one compliment for ABC I really liked the way she does her makeup. But that's where it ends. She's eight people that call her ugly honest. Are you serious of all the people that are on TV for politics. She's one of the more attractive people. At least she's not ugly. Yeah but you know there's more to life we there's the saying so it's such a below the belt thing they drowsy gave her like a unit brown or teeth. Sticking out all snuggling Yes so you know denier Libertarians. And so we read a lot of like well. I smoke a lot and every day just getting other every other there are some really funny conspiracy. Theories about you see in one is that she is just like a stage actress that like memorize lines and stuff and I could totally see except that she like messes them up in her. Do that stuff again guy off stage with the script you skip. It belongs to the script Desi. What are your thoughts on? ABC's makeup. I do like her makeup. I think that whoever does it as a a very good job I do make too so she's looking for. Somebody knew I could do that or her hair. I do her hair as well. She has nice air. Yes this is. The commentary that matters just trots on. ABC's makeup. I have no comment. No Okay I just want to say that. You can't judge Roger put by its cover. That's idiot wait a minute. That's all you can get your book by. That's exactly if you look in a book you have to judge it by its cover. The whole the thing is a joke it all falls apart in. You can't have your cake and eat it too ethan. Kyle confuses me so much I know frank was Tommy. You flip it around and make sense of it and subsequently have can't be like hey I want to see this cake I got eight it. That's a good point missing seeing the forest for the trees and you may even be throwing out the baby with the bathwater. There's no forest within ten miles of here so I don't know what you're timing uh-huh desert form. Yeah we're missing. The forest is literally trees. I don't know how the desert for the missing of the buildings buildings for the desert for the sand the beach for the granules ocean all right. We took that one far enough. You No. It's the weirdest thing to me about this. I know at least for us being on the podcast here is like a total around like using my life is the way more talkative one of the two of us and now it's totally around really weird. This is very problematic with the three guys. That are on the mics. And we're just keeps nudging edging his mic in my direction. I'll keep taking away from me extremely problem. We gotta get way more expensive. Maybe when we get to one of these stories that that you guys will have some strong opinions on we can just back off and just put it in the air if you want to speak just just like in the Nicole House Speaker Rolling panics if you WANNA speak. That's what the wives have to do in Nicole Hassle permission. Move onto a second store. I have no idea how to say the Disney. Can you read the story. I don't know how to pronounce is again. Carney for tests introduces the Biden collection. I was good very convincing. How you pronounce it Garni Garni? So how is Brooke Teas. So is that a good brand destiny can you. Can you give us some advice on shampoos. That are good for our hair. My wife is a stylus Well it really depends on what kind of hair you have so if you have a lot of very dry dry hair you have course here. I like Basu products and while products or pursue products surface. Basu things like that. But this this Garnier and Pantene and Suave don't use it. This episode is brought to you by desert with Zero Salon. If you're in the southern California area you want but you hair down. I wonder if there's lawns in the area where you can get your hair done and then someone behind you just smells your hair for like a shoulder rub the by the whole my old man size they smell this. Oh this is what Joe Biden has been doing at these events posed like a little girl up or like someone like put his hand on their shoulder behind him and he'll do like this and you're like what are you doing. He lifts their hair with his nose. Kind of like a dog lifts your hand to be petted. And he likes Kinda SORTA Sniffen. You've made me this little kids do. It's a weird so I don't even like shampoo. I always accidentally I use the conditioner or whatever. Is there hand soap. I'm good with that. Hence the shower. It's whatever's around and grab I shampoo.

Midnight Express: The True Story of Billy Hayes
"My next guest is a a writer and actor and a director his Book Midnight Express the movie by the same name each iconic in their own right a belated happy new year and a big thank. Thank you for taking some time to my next guest. Billy Hayes Billy. Thanks for being on the show today. Pleasure indeed a good happy new year to you and all of them too. Yeah and I have to say I just I I look at your life in. There's it's the ultimate word. Why start so the one part of your life? I couldn't find anywhere and I know about Marquette Marquette. I know about journalism I know about Smart Guy. How `bout before? That born New York Long Island Kid. Tell me something in between green and I could fill in that gap of time will. I was actually born in the Bronx and I live there for the first seven years of my life and then my dad was actually born in the Bronx. Lived there too so we had a lot of history and I one of about seven. Dad moved out to the suburbs of Long Island. Because the Bronx does get into a really the tough place and he didn't want me to go bad for prize. I grew up in Babylon and I loved. It was a wonderful place. The girl it's by the ocean by the beach. I ended up becoming a nice to swim like a like a CEO. And I became a lifeguard. They used to lifeguard at the beaches over the nets for me. That was everything after lifeguard is pretty much downhill. That's the pinnacle of life. You're making three eighty five an hour back then. which was don mazy about money? I'd go to the I go to work on my motorcycle in my flip flops. Them work at the beach and I just. I love that and then off off to college college off at times. I've heard you say this. And I was born in seventy three but oftentimes I hear you. You talk about this and I I can only imagine what it's like but I get the point because I feel like the seventies and eighties could apply to this to some degree boy. The sixty seem like time to be to grow up into the time to be living living in a massive difference between what we're going through today. Yeah well again. I feel very lucky. I'm obviously kind of prejudice. Since I I did go through this exercise born forty seven so I became a teenager in nineteen sixty so literally those of my formative years and I I love the sixties again. College High School was Great. Life is life is so easy for me growing up. A Long Island is a great place to be. I was so lucky to have wonderful wonderful parents than it was. Everything was easy until it wasn't but I love the sixties it. It sort of changed for me. Everything turned around in one. One Thousand Nine hundred seventy obviously with getting arrested and then halfway through the seventies. It flipped again when when. I'm lucky I'm really lucky. What I've not really really lucky up until about nineteen seventy that I wasn't I don't there's so much that we're GONNA get into act asking if it's none of my business then you just tell me that can handle? How did you have a great report with mom and Dad? Is that something you really close to them. Growing up as a bond. Yeah so that's why I didn't even realize how lucky I was until I saw the folks another kid soon realized you know there are people who they don't even like the Paris the people who hate the parasite. I can't understand that that makes me so sad to think that people don't have that link because I was really lucky guy. My Dad was solid. Did he know he grew up in the Bronx. He worked at Metropolitan Life Insurance for forty two years. You're talking about a solid steady dude and kept working his way up the ladder. He was the guy who everybody depended upon and turn to for decisions he was very rational logical and he always told the truth and I was so so lucky to have him as a father and my mother was just pleaded no the world too much all. She knew his people and love so I had it so good and I think their support and their kind of teaching the things for myself and to stand on my own two feet helped me in good stead when things got that unfortunately I force them to be part of that whole thing which was the worst part of prisons putting them in jail with me but they gave me such a good background than I had such good support at home home so I knew I wasn't alone inside guys who are in prison and they don't have anybody they don't have anybody that they can depend on the outside coup. That's really yeah. Yeah and that would make a lot of sense and you know you gotTa Marquette Gray. School journalism is is there anything in particular that fuels that for you bill years something that you know what. Let's see where this goes. I know you wanted to experience life. You WanNa get the most out of your travel around one point but what what spurs that. I just always wanted to be a writer. I could read before I ever went to school. My Dad taught me to read and write and stuff. I don't know how old I was but I never. I can't remember time I couldn't read. I always read. I love books. I love the the magic of books and things and just I thought I'd love to be a writer. I mean you don't have to wear any particular close. You can dress the way you like. Nobody tells you what to do. You GotTa right so I started but I've always wanted to do that. So Marquette the edge of going to a journalism school was a big factor for me and it was a Catholic like school which dad liked I was raised. The Catholic Church separated it about reason puberty like this. None of this digital men in the Sky Sky Works for you. Okay but please but I went to the school anyway because that phone numbers are good choice and I loved everything I read about it and at that time I used to India fisherman. I used to get up every morning. Like four am and go fish for trout and stuff. After April first in the season and Marquette was up in Milwaukee and I would read field and Stream magazine and feel this wonderful fishing in Milwaukee. I always thought for some reason. I'd like to go there and got there and of course you know how many times I went fishing fishing once you get to college like this stuff to do this. All those women life never fished marquette a great school because they had they provided a good education and I actually got to like it quite a bit. It's really I mean a lot of details. Second have you ever gone back there to speak at all. Yeah actually I escaped in the seventy five came out seventy eight somewhere around there. Seventy we seven summer. I'd have to look at it. The actually I got an invitation by some kid at Marquette to come and speak at the school and micro I I would. How did you get my home phone back in those days? I tried not to have that happen science. So many weird things with phones people golden and such but this the kid finds me back to Marquette and I got to speak at the One of the local theaters where they used to also have classes and in a special two for one knight's on a Friday Friday night. You and you with your date and such so I got to go back and gre- connect and for the first time in a while. Tell my story and I got to say to the Marquette crowd and some of my old friends were there so it was a nice reconnection and it started out actually in doing a series of lectures which I did a hundred and thirty lectures over. What about maybe three year? Three year period. Three eighty six The midnight express experience. I'm sorry a Hollywood and beyond did it all across the country and all across Canada and that I loved because I love colleges and the energies are college school so I got a chance to speak can tell the story and you know it's it's weird. Had always has been therapeutic for me to talk about all list of like I said most most guys coming out of prison. Don't tell the world I just been five years in jail Blah Blah

"babylon" Discussed on The Babylon Bee
"Probably been on a lot got to be really bad ones interviews story. He actually haven't done interviews in a while because now I do the interviewing true so now it is though when you become interview right suddenly like hog gotta think of stuff to say yeah yeah. I definitely the thing that I had to adjust to was shot for me. I I think I have to just to talking. That's the thing when you when you're being interviewed you you have the things that you always talk about and you know they're gonna ask about those things and you're ready with answers yeah and then suddenly when you're asking questions yeah. It's different so if you were me interviewing new questions. Would you ask you. Oh I would ask me ever get a marriage is because I've got married jerks. We are huge in mentioned that basically working so since you are white supremacist married away man in Charlottesville Virginia by the way what Tiki torches everywhere this interview was over man and so how's that going for you in three weeks of marriage into the bass astor recommended. I'm now giving marriage vice versa. He didn't have an answer. She's never been asked this question. How can we make a headline for this candace Owen speechless? She's got new to answer. Crush zones destroyed owns immediately regrets offering marriage advice to the Bab lights always shut cutter down the Babylon be shut down. Do you know how many clicks that would get read on it. So when I got married I found like I used to come home and just bring myself pickup Carl's junior my wife divorce me on the spot so I would do this before I was married before but then I but then I kept doing or or and I would just show up with this so young. When you got married I was twenty and I I would show with food just for myself and I'd be eating it would be like to steer steering like what are you GonNa ask me? If I wanted any food you know and I'm like Oh that's right. There's another person here now like it took me a while to juniors a little little overrated yeah. I don't know if people do people like getting better. It's like Hardee's everywhere else right entireties. I don't know the price it's worth six dollars six dollar burger and four dollars yeah but it tastes like extra two dollars supposed to be really premium as six dollar Burger. Why don't they say like a six thousand dollar burgers? They can make any number was just an example sample. You know I think all kinds of in my defense ethan. What's your best marriage vice nicer man I wasn't ready? I'm speechless to you should uh give out to foot rubs. No actually I never even backrooms. Backer says an excellent point. I typically never go to bed. Angry angles live down everything. She says. Repeat it back to her laughing back Dr that'd get annoying doing though if you repeat it back everything he says back. That's like a way to acknowledge that there you know that you've heard them like the other day we're supposed to bring my kids shoes and she told me that I got the shoes and then so what I heard was she's bringing the shoe but released you meant she put the shoes on the mantle for me to get it and we got into the car. Neither of US had gotten shoes and you're driving off with a barefoot child and so she's like k every time we have to like repeat back to each other what the other ones said so so just be clear with each other. It's all communication. We're trying to help you right now. I thank you for calling in one one hundred percent. I repeat everything. My husband says back to him out. That won't be annoying so anyway so we think you should change your name to canceled. Cohen cancelled owens. You've probably heard like candice owns like asked aloom. I'm sure that jokes dun-rite yet and then there's the the mean take on what it it quarterly Salem owned the missile. I wish they were funny. I actually appreciate when people are clever are and funny and say rude to me. I'm like good humor something. That's actually really funny good one. They're not funny. I'm just going. That's actually just not funny. It's not a good this even if if I agree with somebody and they do a distance like oh come on you know which one I don't like is the Alexandria Cossio Cortez and they say a occasionally CORETEC seasonal cortex context. That's pretty pretty weak yeah. That's that's like. She doesn't think very much so it's occasional occasional cortex. I get it it. It's pretty weak though yeah this week are these hourly funny with like weird with eyebrows or something the country what he's talking about when I see characters versus a giant teeth Brunson teeth. I don't know so anyway when you got something. You really sounded like you had something like I said anyway and I hope you would jump in so imagine a world where you did not become conservative icon Candice Owens. Where would you be doing right now with your life? Oh I probably would still be working finance private equity yeah yeah I think for sure I got really in that really obsessed with politics and here I am. It's weird to me to think about that that your life can just completely change and Dan Jason the never thought you'd be doing. I had no interest in politics. Turn Up. I didn't need your political science. I mean just nothing and here I am. I actually say though I I think I do politics because a heat politics actually third to me like a calling here and I'm like well that just makes me angry great so I'm showing up very political convention and then it's Weird Congress the really they're actors. Have you ever heard people that weren't good enough to make it in Hollywood. How politicians is a and just seeing the amount of theater or the acting that goes on in there contending to cry and it's just weird spartacus I ab- sparring us it's gotta be Bizarre Alternate Reality Reality and live in that all day every day that was the craziest thing was the Taverna hearings when all those it we're basically all giving their campaign speeches and and they were just like these written new volumes Parkas and they're supposed to be questioning Dr Ford or whatever and they're like totally ignoring the whole country is watching watching it was just narcissism on top of narcissism on top of narcissism like it was it was a really bizarre that was that was really weird? The capital hearings that a poor man that was one of those moments or music. It's like as bad as they say it is bussing down people chasing people down elevators Alyssum Milano sitting behind him like who are sitting there randomly it's like what is she doing lost or order so here we're seeing Rickard. Surveys show that show extras where he plays an extra but he's always trying to like get his shot. That's what this is about me yeah but I agree. It's like to me I do politics because I want politics to stop right annoying my life yeah. I just want to go back to being normal didn't mess with my life so much I wouldn't care about it. I want people to be able to say I disagree with him. Not He's a racist rapist list yeah back in place of I disagree with you yeah that would be great yeah and that's what creates so much absurdity for us to make jokes because people always go to these extremes that are just so ridiculous this. It's like the layup for the perfect joke yeah. They're doing most of the workforce I I know. Your jobs are either really easier really hard because we can't we have to exaggerate which is hard to do know all the already the exaggerated. I couldn't get more executive at the same time. It's Kooky enough that there's a lot of stuff to to make fun of so well facebook book listed you as an agent of heat and secret. That's exactly what we were saying. We were joking around. We're like how do you become an agent. I can't tell you what's the agent of starring Candice Zillions with Mike Pence is like the man in the answer the secret document us once the deal. Is that like a real thing like had some spreadsheet floating around that said Yeah in Nick Nick. I guess they they had me on the list of maybe investigate agent of heat Mubin got Alzheimer's but possibly an agent of hate baby unit. Yes so yeah I mean I had no idea that I had that status. We'll have a picture of you lose. It sounds incredibly warrant you. You know that's nuts skin. That's so wild bonkers man. Did you like yeah all right well. We're awesome at this so this has exit going. It's going uh-huh and it's on my list. It's on your list of questions. That was a good transition must be going pretty well because the left wants me dead so that's always a good marker of how how how hard they try to assassinate your character. Have you ever had any like leftists Ninjas Jim out of the shadows you or anything Oh yeah you actually had run INS with anti-theft -solutely the everyone has story yeah. You haven't seen this vegan coconut milk shakes no eggs which really doesn't make their incredibly skinny any in pay status kind of weird. That's a Myron to be an antique up. They housing remember like in the nineties trolls with the bright hair. No real like the Yes yes super bright hair.
