They had another thing. You started like sorry but now will like what happened. What happened with me. After i don't know like a year of this i started noticing. I'm like shit dude. And i probably brought this up to you out because we didn't go out to be like a jazz site. We are more like we want to be professional session. Players like it just so happens that most session players they studied jazz. Or they're just they're just monsters in that world some not all that but like usually so. Yeah it became sort of like jazz. Say but like what ended up happening. Was i'm like to wear where like getting the language of jazz and jazz history. Sort of like documented. It's it's almost like a smithsonian kind of thing like especially with the older cats and we've already had a few like pass. You know what i mean. So it's like they're. They're not doing lessons where they're just showing you what they do. They're talking about. That are basically like verbal educations from like they were passed down. You know what i mean like so i started seeing things that may be alarmed forever. Dead exactly doesn't bernard purdie I was watching that before all. He's at quarter nuts. Coronel at half to half don't like all started with the marching band and realize he's like oh make exploring like how he came into being bernard purdie like he has some stories when he goes into when. I asked him about his time. How did you get such good time. Muschamp like well. He's like i had this train. That would go my backyard. We go through my like. I don't even know. I'm picturing my mind. Like at train went through his back yard. But i'm assuming that was behind it. He's like it would come through and it would go took it took it took. It took a tickets. And every time. I play i picture that training it my mind i was like. That's the best thing i ever heard. And i know some Idiot music students going to say you know it complained that there wasn't some technical answer for that you know like said from and that's the beauty of it and what you guys are mostly artist. Jazz artists or hit mix is what it looked on the side but i know a lot of them can. I'm most of them can play jazz. They're not all jazz artists But a lot of them are It's kind of goes it kind of fell into that way. Because of the demographic and who's buying videos and enemies school you can either be a classical major right or jazz major or they call studio now. I studio guitar and stuff like that. But it's pretty much jazz and you can kind of do pop in certain schools. But it's more production those guys do it all taken like someone like ben maher. He's a jazz monster like it's not he's not even human and he'll help he was on bowie's last record. You know what i mean. It's just like same with or rustling on sirotta. Just on our podcast.

Or who like thunder cat or whoever and There's a bay right. Yeah josh garbanzo for years and you know so. It's kind of You know what i'm saying. It's a high level of musicians often do that. So when you're talking about what you teach on a website. What would these people wanna see. They often want to learn. Like the niche tricks are are skills at someone of a high caliber would have and. That's kind of the one of the things one we're making the site again is that you don't want to compete with sites that do to learn stairway to heaven. I had her how learned. There's a lot of that and there's a lot of them for free so what we can offer for someone to pay a something elite that they can't get and that will change their lives hopefully end and that's what we try to. Do you know something. That's so it's for serious musicians that are either in college or hoping to be professionals or people who are already professional working musicians like tons of people by videos like and then i email like shit you wanna do on because i know who they are names. It's just like you know like famous people. You'll buy something like. Oh i noticed you. Bomb that stalking but it did notice. You bought something if you ever want to do so. Just let me know even though we won't go down the rabbit hole of a streaming and how that's certainly affected artists You know when. I'd say when all of us were probably starting you know there was this idea of you. Know you can make it. You know you could get a record deal in all these things right and sure clearly with with the site in all the info you're kinda showing all these different spokes of how you can be creative person in do lots of different things One of the things that i always found with bands at you start adventure something creative but you know you have egos and you have trauma and you have substance. Problems in. the band doesn't necessarily come together because of a business sense and it is a business right so from from your perspective of talking to all these different folks had the ones that were touring professionally. Let's say did they have other side khanna hustles prior to being part of this. Were they always doing other things. They always have multiple. You know irons in the fire. Yeah it definitely varies. There's some people that are busy so busy and one thing that they don't do anything else but that's pretty rare in to be honest if they didn't do the right thing then they're in trouble right now. Yeah i mean what is. What does the qatar isues covering tunes down key web store or in santa fe right now. What are they doing right now. Yeah how do they have. They live they. I mean i've seen some. I went to new orleans New orleans buddies are just going on facebook. Live and cutting out there then mo and say hey pay me to just play a little or it's funny a couple of guys you're just actually reviewing their old shows play the role a show from like three years.

So here's stop boxers and bought some of these guys are making two three four five hundred lights. Plan gig the giga. There's if i told you the names our doing it. You wouldn't believe it like it's really interesting. It's a really interesting part of the business now. He yeah i mean it. The hopefully they're making money. I mean it's charity and little a little bit you know it's kinda like a kickstarter kind. Became that eventually to where it's like. How many of your friends and family are going to donate year. 'cause you know but runs out at some point. Yeah it runs out at some point so you know we're all in a crisis situation here. I think a lot of people have their. They're digging deep in trying to help their artist. Friends.
"ben maher" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast
"That's really recurring, and they ask a question about an idea movie, and he answers it right away and everyone is shocked. They're like you know all of Medina. He's like it's A. It's a heartwarming film where they talk about God, i. Feel like that hits with a Lotta people and. Everyone was shocked and like yeah. I guess I guess it does I. think that if they approached it more like that that these are themes that are fairly universal that a lot of people can relate to that these films that have wider releases and bigger openings right? Absolutely, that's the thing about storytelling. Is that sure there are some movies that are geared Flory, more specific niche audience, but like a lot of movies in general try to appeal to as large of an audience as possible by exploring very universally relatable themes in many black films do this and for film marketers to assume that a white audience couldn't connect with a story with a black protagonist or A. That explores a black experience like that is ludicrous and Hollywood needs to get a clue. And like invest in black creatives. because. That's just it's such a like you know such a cyclical issue of like you know if black creators don't get the money to make their movie then there's automatically less movies to market. If a movie is made by a black creative, it's automatically marketed less because there is this prevalent assumption that no matter how many times it's proven wrong is always assumed over and over and over that black movies won't sell as well even though it's, it's so frustrated. Yes, instantly multiple times a year, philly proven wrong. But it just becomes like this vicious circle and. Since, we cannot count upon the entertainment industry to improve which it it does so so so so so slowly but it it truly. I feel like it does come down to like individuals being I am going to look outside of what is literally put in front of me by because also like so often. What is put directly in front of us as we discussed on the show constantly? So yeah, and I mean part of that responsibility is ours to like. Go and research the films that aren't maybe in the mainstream because Hollywood refuses to try to let them be in the mainstream and to watch those films, and share them with our audience, and our friends and everyone around us. I what I think we want to. Do, now is just encourage our listeners to do the same work that we are committing to in terms of discovering more black cinema, consuming it and we'll also be. Using like more of our platform more of our social media to direct you where we can, and we're always like we want to hear what you're watching. what you'd like to see covered on the show which our listeners have never been shy about letting. Trust we trust that ten year, but we're We're going to prioritize more finding voices to elevate and. Show with our with our. Baby Platform every halley. yeah and I honestly like. Were focusing on black cinema right now, but we could stand to cover more movies about other underrepresented groups we could we. There's movies about black. Brown Asian Indigenous People. We could cover more queer movies more international movies like not just English language American movies like there's just a whole scope of things that we can definitely can read. The thing is we can read. We should do it more indeed. Another thing that we are going to do moving forward is an adjustment to our nipple scale. We've always treated it. As how does this movie represent? Women But that is something that we. Of course. Realize isn't all inclusive so what we're going to do instead. And this is what we've done with the podcast with the discussions itself, but We're just changing the official rules. Yeah, extending it to the Nipple scale is rather than how does the movie represent women? It's more. How does the movie hold up when we're looking at it from an intersectional Feminist Lens One hundred in that way, it's more inclusive. It's more intersectional. That is what we're going to do moving forward. Yeah, because we also fully acknowledged I mean we always say that. The BECHTOL test is a flawed metric but one of the ways in which it is a flawed metric is that you know by and large? We don't have the numbers on this, but we've seen. Seen movies that often times that the Bechtel test is most often passed between two white women and so it's on us to be taking an coming at the entire show through an intersectional Lens, and that means like we always do. We will be talking beyond the Bechtel test, but even with our own metric, and with how we're approaching the Bechtel test, we're going to be kind of making that a little more focused and a little more clear, moving forward and I think that that I also want to give a hat tip to pass gas. Dani Fernandez for making that point on a recent twitter thread that she just mentioned. The Bechtel test often caters to white women. Right, which is absolutely true, and we will be more mindful in you know pointing that out for sure. When movie does pass, it's often between two SIS-, white women while that's not nothing. It's definitely not everything, not everything. What a great way to put it and and also I mean speaking of the Bechtel test, and you know listeners. You know that we only use that as A. Springboard to inspire a larger conversation. There's still a way that we could approach even how we treat the Bechtel test. Is being more inclusive because we've always said you know female identifying characters who speak to each other I've I've seen renditions of it where it's women FEM 's and non binary people if they speak to each other, so it's basically just broadening it up to more identities on the gender spectrum, speaking to each other, still allowing that to pass so. Moving forward. I think that would be a good idea to implement. and with that you so much. For being here. Of course, they use that. You're having of course Where can people follow your stuff online? What would you like to plug? You can find me online at considerably on all the platforms. That's twitter instagram. That's been Mo. if you're nasty, I. Don't know why said that. Now. But, only if you're an no. I take it bit by bit okay. and also you could listen to my podcast, which is called love about town which Caitland you've been a guest on and Jamie was a guest on one of the first incarnations of the pot. YEA, hell Caitlyn both types of on both. About town right and then love about town Yep uh-huh. Thanks for having me. Yes, please. Follow can use and Ben Maher at least ten dollars preferably more. And you know you can follow us. All the normal places is instagram in twitter is well. You know the other stuff we don't need to hawk. Merch right now, yeah, we'll. And we'll be back next week.

special being you know so but to also an African American man living in well you know that's true and that's interesting because they see you wards human being I mean if they have some issues if maybe because your view of issues about Africans or in a few of them Africa media tie ins have a hard time accepting people who aren't born Italy and been there for centuries you know but in terms of being a human being they treat you very well the human being you don't feel that it's as bad as it is here no no I don't I I mean I think if you're immigrant or your I mean there's a lot lower I am in the

you and when you say this thing about people understanding the artist I think about you in a group of black men who for me have a kind of or exemplify a kind of freedom of expression of self determination so let me name the people and then maybe that helps okay so I think about Butch Butch Morris I think about Henry Threadgill yeah about David Murray about David Hammons that that you are all African American men of a generation maybe you're born a little bit after World War two but you come up in cities through civil rights and you make a very different kind of determination about who you are as men who you are as black men how you're going to live you know what you're going to do who you want to be I think they would have is a one time were in Rome using a club and someone did you

trying to set yourself apart and you're really sort of like encourage you to do that did a medic nearing those of more suburban us when I came here to is that downtown person downtown where in New York and all the art of the Bowery and it was empty they were lost and no one really wanted so I mean it was full of you know derelicts and drug trips and things like that people always drunk on the street it was a big mess I know you say it and and I feel like you're waiting for me to be surprised but we passed that every day right now also yeah with people just kind of laid out on the streets so do you feel like seeing that everyday people on the streets people in your doorway influenced your work also no I was just trying to figure out who I was I was in the figure out sort of what my obligations were to everything the community to raise two paintings to contemporary painting to being in New York you know it was like really for me as in figure out everything what did you feel your obligation to the race was I want to paint you know I mean and I was a painter everyone was trying to tell people who they were what they were and I was fighting to be very independent because my world now I think it is a lot of freedom my work I mean even I was in school in Kansas city during the riots in the sixties and I can explain myself I can defend myself because the black Panthers came by instantly you know what are you doing you know I wanna be the basin painting and I'm looking the gory looking that would mall gonna looking a lot of paintings so paintings seem to be the thing I had to do I feel the pains of the war I felt like New York was total freedom here I immersed myself in the our community you know it was hard to figure out sort of life were kind of like not involved with each other in terms of race so much although I kind of really really was about trying to figure out myself so I'm I'm I'm kind of a loner even now and how does that affect your career let's say infancy career because you know I didn't really you know trust people so you know there's a few people I knew who I was I was into the painting aren't looking at art the people I was involved in terms of really black culture you know me and they didn't always overlap and I mean it was really complicated because you had all the different things going on and you're looking for you're looking for where am I where do I fit into all this and where did you fit into all of that I didn't feel I did I sort of made myself up and so I kind of feel but I think in the arms you do make so I I didn't I would love you to fit in anywhere I was looking to find out what I what my needs were and what my obligations and I realize my location really was to make paintings was there an obligation to your family to the community that you came out of the I didn't feel so no because I came from a very small black community that they were sort of backwards people you say but they lived in outside of Philadelphia Ben Maher and any kind of work that the states they kind of built from our college have for college all over and then I got to stay there because it was a safe haven though they have no idea what I was a radical I had no idea what I was doing I'm just trying to think about I put myself in the place of your parents what I have here is a very supportive in the sense they know who I was but then I got my way they don't know what art was we didn't have a good art museum whenever aren't we didn't do any of that we love of my father's store we're pretty poor and very rich neighborhoods outside of the black community and then my father was a small businessman on main street we lived above the store which was a big thing but they they never got my way I mean they didn't know what I was doing you know I noticed doing I just knew I wanted our school right I always drew my whole life you know I mean I always do always drawn but I had no idea a good thing really well what what I paint it I felt that was my home my home base so those trying to figure out sort of what that was I don't know any black artists you know mean I didn't know anything in terms of our history so it's always been all those years really educate myself you know in New York seem to be the best place to come in to get myself until you know the kind of pain I was and how come because I was seeing where I live but I didn't know really what that meant to me you know like you see a bonnet Newman painting will just be like you know maybe blue with a red line down the middle and I was like well you know what I no coming on the European painting about the European school was that was I had to really work hard to figure out sort of really how I was involved I was a colorless I we've the colors I don't know what that meant in terms of subject matter I don't know the color could be subject matter at that point so the things that really kept me focused with the musicians and the music seemed to be that radical blood music seem to be the thing that identified the most with I mean if I I kind of the opinions is that I'm hell get Davis and you're listening to my conversation with visual artist Stanley Whitney did you go to Vietnam no I didn't go to Vietnam I went to art school and I. E. I got a student a Furman I think because everyone else in the draft actually it's funny my community and I high school maybe there were like maybe ten black people that's all but in my house for my class there were three three three of us who are ours let's discuss Jimmy Phillips to design our how are you Paula who was just so talented but it just recently died he was I was in school with him he was fantastic artists but he never got past the neighborhood and myself and we were ours you know and Jimmy became the your because his father because he was a last caring neighbors families reading a draft right this guy hi Paula who holds lovey he came near to but he got drafted immediately you know relating to Vietnam it was early on fifty fourth I went to Germany I would drop off towards school and I think because there were enough people who were getting drafted they left me alone so then when I came out in sixty eight out of art school came New York and by that time the war was winding down and I got out because I got a I had a house with a child and I got a a doctor who is anti war wrote me letters say I saw that so I got out but you know hung over your head the whole time my friend fluffy when he tried to get out sixty four he told them he would have like most home is gay and the FBI came to the neighborhood you know and when done everyone's house that's about him some of my files of the FBI came in on the blood would it be I should of their light well with you know and they should all know he's a very sweet guy so he got drafted into off because they said because they set up this no he thought of like well no he's he's a he's a good Christian knowing that get you know so he got drafted do you remember when your school was integrated I want to do is fill out my whole life he did yeah but they were but they were integrated in the sense that from kindergarten to high school there were never more than ten of us up the most in the school at the malls so the very small black community very small and what was that like we went to school that was it you never.

D. so here's a story that should go viral so I'm a pet owner right I looked love my pet we both have decided that we love our pets so I was I was that girl who purchase my Pat got my pet not from the Humane Society not from the pound not from the store we wonder at an auction so every time we would go to an auction you you think okay who is that person that's gonna go home with some strange dog and so I did have a little bit of a connection to the stop button who was the organization that was auctioned off a dog every organization off options after I was just at my kids school fundraiser and they had a they actually had a dog from the Humane Society that they auctioned off yeah at the event that you auction it was I have ever seen really you got to go more fundraisers I do it's a big thing and especially when they have like I said it really looked like a beautiful cute little puppy and they take it around and you know I had my son at this auction so there was no way we were going home without the stock and it was so tiny it was so cute and might yeah it was it was a thing and it is like the best decision we ever made well it's amazing so we are the proud owners of a like an auction but I've heard that go the other way to where you get the dog and even though there isn't a refund policy really doesn't work out some of the major society first of all if you live with somebody else in the home they have to be there so you can't just go get the dog or the cat you have to fix their own grain producers of an auction all you have to do is write a check for Monday but else you'll usually they'll have a clause that says we need to check you out you need to pass a background check or something like that because you can't just get all hammered by a dog told us thinking you're going to yes we did we did I think it's pretty cool it was a feisty people pitting it against you and raising it up I'm up everybody in my family was bidding against each other yeah it was it was got it worked out it worked out we raised a lot of money doctors kind of stacked in your favour than it was it was how long ago was this this is like a year ago a year ago south so the dog is well don't make you my dog is a year old this was six months ago so it was really fun and now we're kind of to this point where like should we get her a friend what kind of dog it's a it's a marked so it's a French bulldog Boston terrier so technically it's a mark right because it's like I have like no idea what which is which it's actually a lot smaller than I thought it would be but enjoyable nonetheless so what we call this the first it's ruby roof everybody knows ruby I talk about romance you show all the time so I've not heard so you want to get a friend possibly but not right now I'm good I'm just getting my husband is going to kill me he's actually probably blowing up my phone right now like to do that I don't I mean they get it from camp just soul well I don't own a dog right now because I can't write I live on is love dogs anytime someone has triggered a dog I would vote yes you always ask which would you adopt a dog from the Humane Society yes yes I would so I live someplace I would I I definitely I think you need to move I think you need to move so you can we can make this happen well and then you can be part of the pep club and we can all talk about how much we love and how much money we spend on our he didn't jump in the second now you're moving in you know when we went to get we've ever had more than one point of time but we want to get the cat Billy he had a friend in the cage I'm gonna take a friend to and right before we made the decision the friend jumped down on top of our cat Deeley insert beating out of them said that cats not coming home and we had just the one cat so we never had to but I know people do and they love it see my parents are the the family that can't live with fewer than two we had cats we grew up with multiple animals and so now they have to Westies because you you like Westies always need like another wesentlichen they're like potato chips right you can't just have one so there and they're like the best of friends and it is it is so much fun so next time I'm on the show I probably have two dogs that's pretty good said whether because you said the best of friends we come back and talk about friends in some way shape or form said good deeds I don't know we'll see Tracy imbalance every damn night yes it.

"To grow up in a just peaceful and loving society together we lock arms to shoulder the grief we ask god in heaven to ease the anguish of those who suffer and we vowed to act with urgent resolve I want to thank the many law enforcement personnel who responded to these atrocities with the extraordinary grace and courage of American heroes hi I've spoken with Texas governor Greg Abbott and Ohio governor Mike DeWine as well as mayor de Marco of el Paso Texas Ben Maher man Whaley of Dayton Ohio to express our profound sadness and unfailing support today we also send the condolences of our nation to president over door of Mexico and all the people of Mexico for the loss of their citizens in the el Paso shooting terrible terrible thing I have also been in close contact with Attorney General Barr and FBI director ray federal authorities are on the ground and I have directed them to provide any and all assistance required what ever is needed the shooter in el Paso posted a manifesto online consumed by racist hate in one voice our nation must condemn racism a tree and white supremacy the sinister ideologies must be defeated Hey it has no place in America hatred warps the mind ravages the heart and devours the soul we have asked the FBI to identify further resources they need to investigate and disrupt hate crimes and domestic terrorism whatever they need we must recognize that the internet has provided a dangerous Avenue to radicalize disturbed minds and perform demented axe you must shine a light on the dark recesses of the internet and stop mass murders before they start the internet like wise is used for human trafficking in illegal drug distribution and so many other heinous crimes of the internet and social media cannot be ignored and they will not be ignored in the two decades since Columbine our nation has watched with rising Hara and dread as one mass shooting has followed another over and over again decade after decade we cannot allow ourselves to feel powerless we can and will stop this evil contagion in that task we must honor the sacred memory of those we have lost by acting as one people open wounds cannot heal if we are divided we must seek real bipartisan solution we have to do that in a bi partisan manner that will truly make America safer and better for all first we must do a better job in identifying and acting one early warning signs I am directing the department of justice to work in partnership partnerships with local state and federal agencies as well as social media companies to develop tools that can detect mass shooters before they strike as an example the monster in the parkland high school in Florida had many red flags against him and yet nobody took decisive action nobody did anything why not second we must stop the glorification of violence in our society this includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace it is too easy today for troubled use to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence we must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately cultural change is hard but each of us can choose to build a culture that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every human life that's what we have to do we must reform our mental health laws to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence and make sure those people not only get treatment but when necessary involuntary confined mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger not the gun fourth we must make sure that those judged to pose a grave risk to public safety do not have access to firearms and that if they do those firearms can be taken through rapid due process that is why I have called for red flag laws also known as extreme risk protection orders today I am also directing the department of justice to propose legislation ensuring that those who commit hate crimes and mass murders face the death penalty and that this capital punishment be delivered quickly decisively and without years of needless delay these are just a few of the areas of cooperation that we can pursue I am open and ready to listen and discuss all ideas that will actually work and make a very big difference Republicans and Democrats have proven that we can join together in a bipartisan fashion to address this plank last year we enacted the stop school violence and fix mix ax into law providing grants to improve school safety and strengthening critical background checks for firearm purchases at my direction the department of justice band bump stocks last year we prosecuted a record number of firearms offenses but there is so much more that we have to do now is the time to set destructive partisanship aside so destructive find the courage to ensure hatred with unity devotion and love our future is in our control America will rise to the challenge we will always have and we always will when the choice is ours and ours alone it is not up to mentally ill monsters it is up to us that we are able to pass great legislation after all of these years we will ensure that those who were attacked will not have died in vain god bless the memory of those who perished in Toledo may god check them may god protect all of those from Texas to Ohio may god bless the victims and their families may god bless America thank you very much thank you so it's just like with the cabin hearings yeah okay will bludgeon Cavanaugh well almost every other weekend you hadn't had parties almost every other week and punch bowls and they they they spiked the punch and then they line up in a home they gang rape these young girls and it went on every other weekend and then that becomes well I never saw judge Cavanaugh spike the punch I never well you had a

Coney should help is not on television all over the place a call was kinda loses let's let's be honest here he's a damn idiot the art of pay for what he did I know you're frustrated I'm frustrated as hell because nothing ever seems to happen to the other side to get away with everything and nothing ever write it in the end if you can call me back in a year from now on is not settled and and people have been held accountable I I I would argue that we don't have a constitution anymore I will argue with you that deal is equal justice under the law is is nonsense it's nonexistent that there's a there's a a dole just the system one for the elite the powerful the rest for us I'm and but I don't think we're going to end up in that place and that's what I feel confident about but I know it there are decisions that are being made here that are being made factoring in much deeper things that's I'm trying to tell you without giving away everything that I'm I know that I'm working on okay anyway that a good call I know a lot of you asking me about just to lead a little more patience is moving faster than I even thought that I can tell you you know what if you break down god for bid what a

"So the question is if it were up to you, would you rather have Brett Maher or Matt Bryant kicking for the Dallas Cowboys in two thousand and nineteen. It goes without saying that Matt Brian will beating more expensive option again because he likely is going to have suitors but the question from Aaron by the way on periscope. Why do they cut him? It's just a matter of impracticality for the Atlanta Falcons to Matt Ryan they have Giorgio Vecchio on the roster who who played well in Brian's absence this past season. You might remember Giorgio from his days with the open raiders as well. But we put up a poll about this on blocking the boys dot com. If you wanna go vote you can and so far fifty nine percent of the votes prefer Matt Bryant can. Kenneth on periscope wants to know how old is met Brian's Brian's been around a while he is been kicking in the NFL since two thousand and two with the Atlanta Falcons since two thousand and nine so he certainly has quite a plethora of experience when it comes to putting ball through the uprights and the NFL. But again, you know, it's it's hard because the Cowboys don't have a stable option like they have had in so many seasons before Christopher summers on the buses Facebook live. I'd rather have Bryant, and that kind of seems where people seem to prefer Ostra people seem to prefer excuse me. Because Brett Maher has people not feeling great. Brett Maher kinda Dan Bailey in two thousand seventeen struggled a bid down the stretch for the Cowboys. And he feels a little hard to trust. And that's not the worst thing in the world. Honestly, I mean, you know, you're going to miss kicks, and you're gonna miss extra point. So the NFL works these days, you're never gonna have somebody or it's really unlikely. The you're going to have somebody that Dan Bailey was for so long rarely going to kinda run into that guy. It's just money after money after money Justin tuck in Baltimore's kind of the best example of that. And certainly a rare bird, no pun intended there. Gary to Facebook live feed says I'd rather keep bread mater, and that's another option if you'd rather save two million dollars allocate that towards an extra defensive tackle towards an extra linebacker towards an extra safety. Whoever you want to put that money that is certainly one line of thought. However, and we talked about this with Dan Bailey release and all that that went on over, you know, six months ago now kickers matter and people roll their eyes to say, I don't care doesn't matter kickers, etc. Blah, blah, kickers matter as evidenced again, by the fact, I think about that the games of the Cowboys played in two thousand eighteen they should have been able to kicked a game winning earliest game or have you wanna look at that feelable in Houston against the Texans. Obviously, they punted how that game went down. They did. Have to kick a game winning field. The Detroit Lions they did have to kick a game winning field while against the Atlanta Falcons their game against the Washington. Redskins came down to a field goal kick. The Cowboys played so many one possession games that kicks and field goals and extra points are super valuable. You cannot just have any all generic kicker. I think right now Ben Maher is in the you know, maybe the bottom of the second third of NFL kickers right now. I don't think he's a top third congressional. He's even in the top half. And so you really have to consider what you wanna do there. Because that position is extremely important any position that can influence the number of points or team scores is so valuable and it's so critical. And that's why this question this subject is so interesting because it's not every day that kicker Brian becomes available. Although to be fair it was just last season. The Dan Bailey became available. Although that was in the finalisation of rosters not way early on in February. When teams could really take a cold hard..

"Danny white Jerry Recco. Back at our New York studios. Waiting to get you caught up up at the half his worth the two that are warning here. We're tied seven seven at the Cowboys are put together a fifty five yard drive right now. Five four ninth play coming up in a couple of huge third down conversions both with Dak Prescott under duress, Danny? Yeah. He's done. A great job. Not only making plays whatever boarding any mistakes that he Colonel was. I mean, they're just haven't been any mystery throws her early in the season. He's gotten progressively better. We saw a lot of throws over low and high right and left and seems to have gotten a lot better with his act. Chrissy. These been that way today for every every Baldwin's throw thirteen for fifteen has been on the money lick Jaren motion to the backfield. He is set to the left. The Prescott Zeke Elliott to his right here comes delayed glitzy swingset Elliott, Alabama. Twenty minutes stip defender as he takes it down to the fifteen yard line. That was Mason foster who went head over heels apathy nasty flipper from Zeke Elliott following the six yard catch and run for Mason foster hits him right on the sideline. And I know I know you gotta be careful hitting him out of bounds. But. Ezekiel Elliott just took his left arm and just flipped him off. Hobby a fly landed on his shoulder some flipping flipped him over Amari Cooper, motions out of the backfield. He's why'd here to the near side outside the numbers. Here's the play actually know to keep up by Prescott. Pylon. Quite get there. He was trying to get his shoulders turned up at nice job by Josh Norman and haha Clinton Dix this spring him out just enough. Mark him at the four looks like after a ten yard pickup. Will be first and goal to go with one thirty eight to go here in the first half tied seven seven for boy. Kevin I think if he had if he had to shoulders and turned east north and south. Well, the thing is big and strong as he is right into the end zone. It may not have been what they want to go. And I don't think they had their ways they could run a couple of plays here. Whether or not call timeout now. But you gotta play clock was down to one. They don't want to score quickly. I'm in a minute. Forty eight left to go in Washington with two timeouts left. Ideally, you'd run a couple more pleasure at least make Washington user timeouts but Redskin game like this. Yeah. Redskins to timeout. In a game like this. You're you take what you can get in. And you you do have a defense over there. That's playing pretty good football in the one of the guys. We haven't talked enough about today is Demark horror toward a great year. He's having wolf we'll talk more about him when the Redskins get the ball. But the one run and pass and give give them to the quarterback. He's having he's having a phenomenal year. But here come the Cowboys on the four yard line. First goal. We'd like to gain about two yards on his players. They had had their choice. Michael galvin? Beasley split out white here. The nearside play action the proper Prescott looking for his feeble Noah Brown. Prescott discontinued pedal and in doing so badly under three receiver Noah Brown who was wide open. Well, it was a rubber out and Noah Brown came across from the other side and the defender got completely taken out. And so Noah Brown is like you say running the wide open across the field right to left. Unfortunately, Prescott is backing up avoiding the rush when he throws it all he had a new law that thing anywhere on the left side of the end zone would release touchdown. So three wide nearside four, man. Rush Prescott steps up pressure. It. Tried to stick on his way out of trouble. They just turned him right into the face Preston Smith, but it was Wyan. Kerrigan this showstopper, they call him. Applied the initial pressure at Prescott could not escape a thirteen yard loss. Well, he he seconds starts out Washington. Release. They've made Washington US wrestler timeouts, but he tried to spin away from the pressure any spun right into. An oncoming Redskin. Had no chance. No, no. But that's that's the worst thing. You can do a quarterback take a sack like that. He never saw. You never saw the rush coming from his left turn right into her. Oppressed at Smith, it'll be credited with a sack, but it was Ryan Kerrigan who came in with six and a half sacks making his one hundred twenty third consecutive start today. That's the longest among active linebackers. Kerrigan just putting together other phenomenal season three time pro bowler, and especially gets Cowboys here. The brutal against key seems to dial it up a notch or two so Cowboys looking at thirty Goldie go back at his seventeen now or be careful here. Two white farside cigarettes souvenir. Sykora man rush sets up short underneath to Elliott Elliott takes between the hash marks. And muscles down inside the ten to the nine two seven yard pickup. And they will just bring on Brett Maher for the bugle Tampa. And Danny back to your point about try to work the clock. Yeah. We'll go back to the to the run by Prescott. You'd certainly take that touchdown right now with one thirty two and counting to play. Still had put the wrong number up on the scoreboard L D time out by the Cowboys. I believe but that Redskins still had another one. They just burned their final money here. So one twenty eight yard attempt for Maher. Straight away. Here's a snap. And the Cowboys retake a lead at ten seven with one twenty eight to go. Now, this is a Redskins team. As we noted had four sacks in the first meeting between these two clubs. They had twenty eight sacks coming in. And they've already got three here in this. First time. Yeah. They've they've. They they've been great. Rushing the quarterback. We'll talk means in the league and the Cowboys Humber -cially offense. Thirtieth in the league at ten percent to give up a sack of one out of ten plays in one out of ten passes. And so that's been that's been a big factor. This game Prescott done a pretty good job. Protecting the ball that that often can lead to turnovers so far the Cowboys have had none. Well, yeah. And back to that first meeting. It was these strip sack resulting in a touchdown. My Preston Smith proved to be the difference in the game. It was a fourteenth place boring. Bribes sixty five yards five thirty six total time, but they had to settle for the twenty eight yard field goal from Ben Maher on the kickoff here. Lands of the end zone and the Redskins without time out for mating. We'll field it out at the twenty five so one twenty eight to go at as we mentioned a couple of times washy could one the point toss and deferred to the second half. So they all have an opportunity to generate some points. On multiple possessions. Here we'll make critical possession for both teams Redskins with a chance to take the lead or at least tied up going into the locker room and then getting the ball to start the second half. So makes this possession. The most important possession of the game show. Far three bids is blank to caught McCoy who works out of the shotgun. Deep scrambles now out through his wife with pressure comes sets up throws and the past will be incomplete with trying to get it to MAURICE Harris third year out out of California, free agent and. And. Toys a big one because the Cowboys with two timeouts Danny only seven seconds expired, depending on what Dallas is able to do defensively on the second down. Dallas might find their way with the football. Again, if the Redskins don't gain significant yardage on this play look for the Cowboys to call timeout. Keep an eye on eighty six. Jordan Reed is set to the left of the formation McCoy. With a shotgun. Snap pop. Looks back across the mill nearly. Quick should have been picked off. Xavier woods who was right there. Xavier was over in that line. Great practice worthy. Receivers are practicing coming back to the ball. They have a grill debut in the defensive backs. Never do it stood there waited for the ball when he waited so long receiver got there before the ball was able to at least knock it down. Otherwise, you had an easy intercept credit Josh Dotson for doing just that Danny hill from acetyl DP. The third. Crowded on their feet. Shotgun snap to McCoy. There's a piddly black down in down. Mccoy. Back at the twenty th. Eireann Crawford in DeMarcus Lawrence the hot, boys. They call themselves able to get inside dropping for a five yard loss. But we'll wait and see what the penalty is most likely will be a holding call. Use has it a face off at O. This is the car with all the players worked out as Tony Bergstrom seventh year right guard out of Utah Manso the Cowboys. Surprising play Colleen Kevin. I know the J crew wanted to get some points going into halftime. But those incomplete passes building they stopped the clock and now with the minute nine left and the Cowboys with two time outs yet they used nineteenth seconds on that Cyril. Yeah. That's that's gonna draw a little bit of criticism. I think during the week if this game doesn't go the way the Redskins one or two. Well, those are some of the issues that. Fans and critics there in the nation's capital of had with Jay Gruden and his staff and that is game management and clock management. Jay's real aggressive thinker. And then so it doesn't surprise me that he was rather than thinking about. You'll running out the clock to him the half you sit there about sports. Dress way clumsy. Got a beauty is last time up watching this way or reply is not get his best effort right there. And. Only seven seconds expiring on that one. So the Cowboys with one or two to go here in the first half two timeouts to work with and leading ten seven. This is one of those points in the game. I mean, there are critical points, and you can go back there after you always go back when you say you will have done this or that. Or this had happened at certain points in a game. This is one of those points the minimum to to go. Now, the Cowboys can get any points out of this. Even a field goal would be a huge plus for the Cowboys Cowboys will line up with Beasley and Amari Cooper to the right Cooper outside. The numbers. Shotgun snap. Your to Prescott sets up. Throws back across the middle. Turn to shoulder for the outside inside. I down kicks for Maury Cooper. Is you hear the fans? Shouting there. Josh Norman on him and he had beaten by three steps teen yards at a pickup which snap set and throw and throw this time skips off the turf forgot tip line of scrimmage. I think. Down with the Cowboys going temple and. Jonathan allen. Big second year defensive end out of Alabama Zack Martin walking him. But he was able to free up that left arm and reach up and slap it down. Bringing up second and ten Cooper lines up here on the near side now as the corner covering him as shot, Greenland Beasley motioning right to left to the nearside Prescott. With a hand gesture to face mask steps up. The pressure or the sack game as crested Smith than Ryan. Kerrigan just overwhelmed. The Cowboys offense it front. It's a seven yard loss. Fourth sack all day. Thirty seconds lack of the Cowboys will call a time out. They'll have one remaining. We should point out that tyrants Smith. He was not listed inactive today. But we have. Yet to see him out there since early on Cameron Fleming is out there at left tackle. But right now the Redskins getting pressure from both sides as we will pause ten seconds for station identification. You're listening to compass media networks, this is the NFL to your car stereo one zero seven seven dash to to hear that true sound of the faithful..

"We are the biggest entrepreneur destination on the planet. Welcome to Business Rockstars. We are continuing our conversation with Eric Taussig CEO and founder at pre Alltel. So some of the best businesses are built when the CEO or founder is their audience themselves because they had a need. And then they created the solution for it. And I know you mentioned that you needed. This you needed the help yourself you needed to build a team. So tell me a little bit about that pinpoint for you. And how you created this solution? Yes. So there's multiple levels of it. So in the beginning, it was like gosh, you know, spend a lot of time in a day in a week, maybe talking to customer service for some product that I'm using and I have to wait on hold and get transferred around. I could really use somebody to kind of get that done for me and hopefully deal with the problem from end to finish or at the very least hot transfer that call to me after they've got the right person on the line. So really simple. Use cases. What I found is a wider. We use case which is really kind of understanding like I said workflows that I can delegate the create a lot of time. And there I think I'm really I really look up to fill live in who said, you know, I'm really disorganized guy. But I'm going to start an organization company. That's fascinating to me ever Evernote. Right. And that's fascinating to me because you would think hey, you want to buy from somebody who's really good at something. But actually, it turns out that those people could struggle to become good at something are actually better practitioners in the end. Or better have a stronger ability to teach others that skill Ben Maher, and they know the nuances of those pain points and the struggles, and so they can create a solution accordingly. Yeah. People that are naturally organized nationally naturally, processed within are unaware of it. So they're not gonna be able to instruct others as well as somebody who's really gone through the pain of consciously learning it. Yeah. So you alluded. To the fact that you've hired people that complement your skills. So maybe they are a little bit better at creating these systems. So tell me a little bit about your team. And how it's worked well for you. Yeah. I look for like I said I looked for processed junkies. People who. Just are almost compulsively unable to allow disorganization to surround themselves that they naturally will jump in and make something more organized when they see disorganization, and and those people are very complementary to a lot of the executives that we support you tend to be more ideas people. Tend to be kind of running around at a cadence where they don't have time to even decide at least in their heads. They don't have time to even decide what they should delegate. Let alone take the time to scope that out into the detail necessary to delegate Andrew saying, so do you use some of these virtual assistance? So absolutely. What are some of the things you use them for? Well. I mean, it's a scheduling is a big one. There's a lot of artificial intelligence solutions out there for scheduling. But as yet, they don't have the pattern recognition that a good support person has so yes, they can find a hole in your calendar. But there's a lot of signaling and sociology that takes place in scheduling, do you offer to go to that the other person's office, or are you having them come to you? Do you want that to be in a quiet coffee shop or someplace loud and fund that sort of thing our assistance can make those sorts of judgments, so scheduling big wine, making sure data is in the right place. So when I leave the meeting, my assistant is calling me and asking me. Questions. I should be asking myself about what happened in that meeting and logging that information into our CRM lot of times that information implies follow up that they can do themselves such as sending a piece of content or putting a reminder to contact that person after a certain amount of time that sort of thing anything else because I think this is really good for entrepreneurs to know areas that they can outsource that. Maybe they're not thinking about yet. There's a lot of outreach kind of social reputation stuff that's very process driven. When you think about it? And you really break it down in our systems are really good at that along with the what we call the engaging managers these processed junkies that Satan are Portland Oregon office in general, it sounds like you have some really good best practices in your business. Maybe it's do with time management or organization or delegation. Whatever it is. What are a couple of those things that you go every entrepreneur needs to implement this into their business. Well, every entrepreneur. Needs to learn how to delegate and some start out as natural delegators. 'cause they're kind of these ideas people they can attract talent around them. Some don't start out there. Either way the act of starting a business. Can can dampen your ability to delegate because you necessarily have to ensure touch everything in the beginning in that process makes you become if you're not already a hands on person makes you extremely hands on in it in it, you good at everything, which was an extent reaction. But it makes you but not great. Yes. That's that's a really good way of saying it, and I think the temptation is to be like, wow, I can do this all myself. But then you're not going to get to that next level of gross at some point. You gotta delegates to free up some time. So what are your tips for being a good delegator? Well, I would say surround yourself with people that are going to require you to be specific enough. So that they can they can take on the work for you. But the other thing is not not being choice. Simple..
