The studies is that the gut brain axis is all these microbes have a two way communication between basically the entering nervous system of the gastrointestinal tract so alcott and the central nervous system. Which is the brain the vegas nerve and is referred to as the gut brain axis now.

What Is the Value of a College Degree?
"Hi brian. Thanks for coming on the newsworthy fisher. I appreciate it. So i let me just ask. What's your take on the value of a college degree in today's world. Shoot we wanna value in having that college degree but when it comes to employment and job opportunities in some ways it's becoming less valuable because of how competitive the labor market is become as you look up and down the labor market from not just hourly employees retail employees but salaried up and down the continuum what companies are finding is that there's not enough people for all of the jobs that they want to hire for so one. They're relaxing a lot of the historical constraints that they've had on the jobs that they're hiring for and that includes things like previous experience educational certifications and different degrees. That people have had so a lot of companies in particular across the last two or three years have been relaxing many of those constraints. The other thing that's going on is that for people that might have some of those degrees or experiences or whatever it may be. They're also able to ask for more money in the labor market so the other reason why companies are expanding their horizon of who to hire. Is that for people without college degrees. They're able to find that job and they're willing to extend an offer them. But perhaps at a slightly lower compensation level than people who do have a college degree

I would pen the fiction if i was taking this story and wanted to write. Write the book Right the write the script. And where would i go with it because the question is you know. Whereas she but was brian. Also the creepy man that was You know basically the there's a couple unit probably know about it. That was murdered in their bodies were found in august eighteenth female couple and they had said that. There's a creepy man who intimidated them and or they felt intimidated by.

He is the creepy man near that campsite that he and the girlfriend made it to a campsite close by and when this guy started to rage and basically his relationship is unraveling is becoming not what it is seen on video but really unhappy that that the girlfriend is the one person for him and she feels the same way. There's a break-up something like that. But when he goes off wandering he sees a happy couple he sees a happy couple and these were newlyweds to female couple and he just rages over that fact because that's something that he can't get he wants and he can't convince the girl who's been his girlfriend for a couple years and now when they're enclosed quarters in the van things are different than what they are in the wide open space any

And i want to say They decided somebody decided to come after you to make you Suffer for what who were the who came after you what happened. Why did they do this. Any of us. That were vocal on what was called the trump march leading up to the six. Yeah they put bullseyes on all of us. What made me such convenient target. Was that picture with the q shaman. Yeah taken a month before. When i didn't know who it was by the way pelosi's nephew also has pictures with that guy. Multiple other pastors. I'm a public figure. When you re talking about governor pretty boy can really boy. it's another one. I saw pretty boy less pretty boy not pretty enough to be governor but pretty right so he's got something going for him so so i was. It was convenient for them and There are groups out there. These groups are more coordinated than you would know they are. I was going on media going on every kind of show out there right. Sam what you saw the six. What really happened and telling the truth right and so. I think that i wouldn't shut up so they kept coming and so what they did. Is they sent fourteen to fifteen hundred death threats. In a week they teen to fifteen hundred death threats. Yeah some of them are gonna week. Yeah cut out killer letters from the eighties right man. Who's doing this. Well there are three big groups that people. I'm not mentioned by name. Because i'll be sued but groups. Yeah that that Perpetrate and do this kind of stuff to people and they use a three prong way of doing it number one. They'll hire internet trolls right. Make fake they keep coming. Keep coming keep coming you block them. They build more. They threaten threatened threaten the second group they use. They use antifa antifa and radical. Blm to come in a rash you. That's the muscle in in the mix They sent them into my hotel room to come after me. They sent them up into the mountains. Where i had my family to say place. Couldn't go home for like a week.

Watch you name it. They keep coming to three three prong attack. But you're still here. Yeah they're not killing me yet and you're full of fire. Yeah and here's the deal I'll believe this. I believe jesus is the land that takes away the sin of the world right or one hundred percent. Jesus lamb died for my sins forgiven on my way to heaven because of him. But jesus is not just a lamb. Jesus has also allying. he'll return to execute judgment upon the nations and what wisdom teaches us to do is it teaches us when to be the lamb and when to be the lion and it's a time in america that we need some lions and so people need to stop being afraid. Most of this is just intimidation. If they kill me they'll make thousands of me. No make more around me. They don't wanna kill me. They want to scare me. And if you can be scared you can become ineffective and so what you do. Is you have to realize that. God has given you a spirit of fear but a power love and a sound mind and push back and if they kill me. There's some days it's like that's not such a bad deal. You ever walked into funeral home. Seeing a guy in a casket and be like. Look at that lucky dude. You know what i'm saying. He don't know bill. he's out christian. God now the bullets that he dodged outta here.

Brian gibson We've got to figure out how to connect on some of these things because everything unfortunately depends on this stuff hundred percent and But just the fact that you exist. gives me tremendous encouragement God is using you in my life right now in the lives of the people listening and watching this and i think god has a plan but his people need to wake up and stand and fight and praise him in all circumstances and fear nothing but him. God bless you brian. Hey thanks for having me..

It's all that kind of thing and what we did is we go and certification is an american tradition. You need to respect. It needs to respect it. You don't have to agree with it but you need to respect. Go walking in somewhere. They say you can't come here you're white. I said what you mean like Segregation no is a healing zone. I said you mean like jim crow. No no this is a this is a healing zone and then antifa guys start showing up so the little ones come first little show got a few hundred probably hire them. I'm thinking oh they're paid absolutely. They're paid but so yeah. We preach there. We preached in the brianna. Brianna taylor stuff and louisville preached in dc and the riots out in front of the white house. Now i cannot imagine that there many people there that are open minded. While the way you do it as you don't run out and scream. Jesus is coming at the top of your lungs. I would interview people. So i walk up and say tell me what are you doing here. What do you hope to see out of this. Do you feel about america. And then i take it from there and i say listen i believe we're all created in the image of god right and then like frogs jump out of their mouths and some of them absolutely manifest demon possessed. But no but i'll eight hands and prayed laid hands on black panthers prayed for antifa guys. All i got video of my wife praying for this antifa guy. That is smoking a joint. And she's giving him a word of knowledge she knows about him. You know by the spirit of god and he's smoking pot. He's like yeah that's right that's right that's right and so yeah. People people are open. They let them minister to you But it's an alert said and you're feeling mellow now. Say you're the human mind. That's not the spirit of god because anybody knows that. Wait a second as they can so you move in this in words of knowledge and stuff. Yeah yeah sure. So yes sure i mean i'm all for it but you know there are a lot of people that they don't they don't know anything about that right and they think they're christians right right and they go to piscopo churches and stuff but so tell me. How long have you been moving in that kind of I got saved her father. Her father took me in Kind of a faith based drug rehab program. Nine hundred ninety eight. I was a coke head and a meth freak and he was a healing evangelist. That preached all over the world or was in kentucky not texas texas. They sent me to texas to get away from my outlaw kentucky friends Was i was exiled. West texas so so yeah we. We are early days like that. We were around. Those kind of things hastens thing because people who have that kind of faith. There's a joy in a fire and it's just so beautiful and when you go into dark places like you're describing You really do. Bring the power of god with you. There's no fear it's not about.

And you're not somebody that's easy to sum up one of the joys of the rb as bumping into folks like you and and then being able to have you on the program but you're you're tough to some so you're a pastor in kentucky and texas correct. Yes yeah. Been pastoring now. Seventeen years got campuses in west. Texas and western kentucky conveniently located twelve hundred miles apart. Where did you grow up. grew up in kentucky farm kid from kentucky and it s why eerie net piece of cold squirrel. While you're talking. One hundred percent so your pastor but when we spoke yesterday you were sharing with me. How in the last few years. You've gotten seriously involved In what is happening in this country. You've preached on the street in places like the fake autonomous zone in seattle chop or chaz chaz bono or chastity bono or whatever it's called so how did this happen for you. When did you suddenly get awakened to the madness. While believe this one hundred percent and of hung my life on this verse. Jesus said matthew sixteen eighteen. I will build my church and the gates of ill will not prevail against you. Don't take that literally come on literally. I'll take it and my favorite place in the world's in northern israel rights philip philipot. You ever been up there before. No oh you gotta go so. There's this massive rockwall right And at the top of it. There's a there's a cab at the bottom of it for the spring came out. Fountainhead of the jordan river. Oh i know which you know where i'm talking about now. So so up there that they worship pagan gods right. Pan caesar up there. They worship zeus up. There and know observant jew would go close to it right. Jesus took his disciples. There says right there where it's dark. Words messed up where it's broken. He says i will build my echinacea my church the gates of hell won't prevail against it so i think the church's mission is not to stay where it safe not to stay where it's warm not to stay where it's pleasant out to be conference but to be in the red light district of bangkok to be at fat tuesday or mardi gras to beware hell's breaking loose. The traffic breaks loose. This is the kind of crazy that i am all about. That's why i knew. I like to and loved you. So how do you live that out. I mean you've got a family. You pass their churches. How do you. How do you personally live that out. Yeah well this last year. I mean i started my church in a bar where guys got busted for dealing a co connects and i thought man. This would be a great place. What ecstasy so drug. The next that's the street. Name for ecstasy. Yeah yeah so. I thought what a better place to start a church turn turn a tavern into temple right and so that's an rda and this last year when they locked down the churches you know we passer church. Four locations couple thousand people Two different states different governors one here in texas governor abbott. A very different perspective than governor. Bashir fuhrer bashir right in in kentucky. So you're kentucky you're in kentucky people's values in kentucky are pretty middle america. Then we had bashir that every night who would get on his fireside chat. Talk about the church talk about pastors. Talk about cova and hammer us night after night after night. And you mean kentucky which i would think of as a red state. You have a governor with a blue state brain a leftist off. Think think if Cuomo and you know the galley going to blog yo had a child that would wreak of nature. Yeah we say that in love but yes so you're talking about the. How does how does kentucky elected governor like that. Well we had matt bevin before. Who is a stud that dude as a hero. I have known him. he's a he's a hero. Well he's to have up brand for him in the governor's mansion. Yeah i mean. He's better preacher than i am. And great leader but he took on the teacher's pension trying to straighten out in the state of kentucky and bashir's father destroyed it when he was governor of state. there the state of kentucky. Yeah so he took on the teacher's union and they got a tit for tat fighting aids. Family program you watch now. I'll be careful listen. The past bible church is sitting in the. He's going to be on here next. I just want you to clean it up my repent right. The program unbelievable. So here's here's what what goes on Bevin goes after that pension has a war public war with the teachers. Yes and they take him out and He had a bad peo- some bed. Peo- we we're in a war because he's a hero are we. Don't have to get into this. But i'm saying that when covance started. I guess you saw this. You'd had enough. And but what did you do to to When did you what did you do about it. I guess to bring you to where we are now. Because i've heard your story. And i want you to my audience while the health department tried to shut us down for passing out easter eggs. Two kids a while. The mcdonald's is is pushing french fries. Communist coffees putting out breath as lot days. But the church can't give an egg to the the kids. And i hope everybody is listening people having their private conversations but people listening on this program when you're trying to do it's not even god's work you just trying to do the normal thing it's east or you're passing out east and some. Sob comes from the government and tells you can't do that now in a civilized country you pull out a gun and say get off my property or i will kill you because that is so offensive to an american in a free country that they would behave that way and but we're supposed to act as though well we have different points of view.

"They be talking about the 'pharmacon sure could they be saying as so many others have said that your being is bubbling up from inside of you. You're on your soul is like a spring of eternal life flowing side of you. It's it seems like it's both. You know what i mean. Is jesus saying that you know communion is symbolic and it's this farm and that's the solution gin there's open. There's there's juice in both you know what i mean. In the same way you could get a deep meaning from the santa claus smith even though in that might not be literally true or even close to the point. I guess what i'd love to hear you talk about. Is the availability of this message of this revelation to those. Who aren't doing drugs. That seems to be sort of on one hand. I can hear myself thinking you have to taste it. You have to like just said you can't see the kingdom unless you are born again but then like are there ways to be born again without taking these plans there must be ways to be born again it happens it happens all the time i mean it happens in ways you know big and small. It happens again staring into the eyes of your infant. It happens witnessing the birth of your children. It happens witnessing death. If you're fortunate enough to witness the passing of a soul it can happen on a street corner. It can happen smelling the honeysuckle. But there are these moments and there are these times in. Jesus talks about this and this is. This is the point of sacramental theology in the catholic church. Like we have sacraments for a reason. You know. it's not just enough to believe in jesus or to accept the lord as your savior and your buddy It's not just enough to pray to him to worship him in john's gospel especially my favorite gospel. You know there is the promise of immortality through the consumption of flesh and blood and it's weird and it can't be ignored and it's so weird that you know john's. John's eucharist is so different from matthew. Mark and luke. It doesn't take place indoors. There reenacting the ceremony. In real time. Jesus just talking about the concept of devouring his flesh and guzzling his blood and the jews assembled at copernican listening to this for the first time in john sixty they split us. Like what the hell is this. This ain't jewish this is cannibalism. This is straight up cannibalism. But jesus couldn't be any more clear when he says that unless and it's very clear in the greek unless you feast on my flesh and drink my blood. You're not alive and for those who do not throw them. We'll sadeq dino mohtarma had sony on which means whoever anybody whoever eats munches on my flesh throw a gone too much on my flesh river. Choose my flesh and drinks. My blood has eternal life in the present tense in greek. Fa has eternal life. Not they do go to an afterlife. Not they are saved. They have right here right now. They have tasted immortality. And the same concept you find in thomas's gospel in in saying one awaits. Jesus says whoever drinks from my mouth will become like me. i myself shall become that person. This is the whole promise of the incarnation is that is that you are christ and you become christ by coming christ. And so maybe committed your way towards salvation. Maybe there are lots of different arcade techniques for doing that sleep deprivation tattooing scarf occasion etc. But jesus does talk about a sacrament. He does talk about consuming him. And it's hard to believe that was well as grape juice and just believing really hard. Just really hoping that you're doing it right. Which so much of my early faith was that. You talked about mckenna. And his involuntary verbal experiments. That speaking in tongues. I remember praying for that. I just wanted proof that something was happening. And it wasn't until i feel like i ate the flesh that i had the proof i hear jesus saying faithless generation asks for sign. But like it's not. It's not asking for sinus almost like i wonder if there's a correlation between grace and these these plants because they feel like grace they feel like the embodiment of. Here's a gift you haven't earned it. It doesn't check if you're a good person. It just it just floods you. With with this experience it's gratuitous grace what is crawl rauner said that the it's the self communication of god grace's the self communication of god. Which if you take pen and theism to its logical extreme. It is available in ordinary bread and wine and the gaze of a young infant. But it's also available in the plants herbs and fungi that have co evolved with us for five hundred million years. Yes it's in everything but it's especially in this. I know that's the paradox. But if you're not comfortable with paradox. Well here's the question they you're probably tired of. What are you are you thinking about it. I mean you know you're beyond curious your beyond curious because curiosity produces this book. Nobody is scouring footnotes for sixteen years. If you don't have and i would. I would say that when you re dina's story or in the forward the stories of of a serpent wrapping around you and and and undulating love and acceptance and all that stuff those stories can sort of activate something in you so like. I don't think you're let's say this you haven't been there but you've looked at the map so much like you've lived like three d. Oculus rift go maps. That when you go there if you do Only the pendleton man will pass like you've you've you've humbled yourself you've shown the respect like the just taking a handful of pills at the gathering of the gigolos. Maybe that is fine but like you've definitely lowered yourself and showed irreverence and all these wonderful things to think you haven't since you've written the book. Have you know what's going on after thirteen years of catholic school and four years with the jesuits you begin to carry a lot of guilt. No the the the blessing from pope. Pete means a lot to me. I was part of me. Is looking for a blessing from from the hague go. I'd love. I'd love to talk about this with pope francis And i'd love to talk about this. With with christian leaders around the world writ large..

"Symphony of destruction. I'm glad we're talking about megadeath. Now it was it was dave. Mustang was awfully upset that it took. How long only three minutes shame. But the divinity of all things. I mean the ramdas has a has a ref on being crucified. And he's like. Do you think jesus was looking at the syrian nailing him to the cross. Do you think he was looking at him with anything but pity. Do they know now what they do. Meaning they're unconscious meaning. They're lost in the game. They think they're roman brian. They think they're roman. That was in my book to. I was in italy and i saw lady bug and i said this lady bug has no idea to talion. That was a real breakthrough from me. I was like this lady. Bug is italian. And i'm not american. I am at the dmv. I am at the passport office but that that's the flavor of liberation. And that's how that's a good point that's lady so ladybugs here in southern cone. Spanish is san antonio. Saint anthony Well by by the by which. I'm not sure that ladybugs here. Actually one flew in my ankle yesterday. And i thought oh saint. Anthony is here to help me send my daughters off to school but but to close to close the the window on on the noyon conversion and change which is the point and i was thinking about your quote about turning the head kind of like peeling back the curtain realizing how the gears are are turning and i was thinking about the resurrection. An easter is coming. And i don't watch sports. Don't have any friends. So i have lots of time to read the gospel of john and in the gospel of john it also it develops this theme about turning the head and so mary magdalene right mary. Magdalene is the first witness to christ resurrection And richard roy describes her as this ordinary woman who knew jesus in the flesh and suddenly. She's confronted with the the light body christ's right so it's not like the dead guy got out of the cave and walked away. He burst into kaleidoscopic rainbow of multicolored light and became the lightbody. Jesus and president. Barack does all around rosen franco. How do you but but how does someone recognize who that is and the greek is really interesting in john's gospel. When so her her conversion her way of recognizing jesus is by stafa turning the head and the verb is used twice in a row Chapter of john. It says that she turned around and saw jesus standing there and when he utters the magic phrase when he says her name modem she turns again and says to him rabbi and established like the supernatural communication. I mentioned all that only to say these conversion turning the head experiences have to be something that shocked the conscience it has to be some kind of ontological shock that that just that wakes you up what richard calls the stun gun experience that any true sacrament really ought to be. There was your life before that experience. There's your life after and the two rarely meet. I love that and my following you correctly. That mary magdalene. It says she turned. If i was cool. I'd say the greek to she turned welcome to one of the few spaces brian. We're you seem like the coolest guy. I love it. You're like i have no friends. Don't like sports. I'm like buddy. I have so few friends. I don't like sports. Welcome to your safe. Inner sanctum she turns. It says yes and sees christ presumably behind her. I mean the o'day she sees a visionary ceo day which is where we get the english theory theology she sees christ she turns and has a visionary encounter but then she turns again. Which if we were only talking about physical turn should be turned three sixty and be facing the wrong direction for the first turn is an inward turn in fact the only important turn is the inward turn and then the rest is probably it could be. It doesn't matter a metaphor it's and then she turned and she saw him and talk to him and re responded to him. You start to realize that. It's at inner turn that matters rob l. Has that did. I get that right to turns years. I'm gonna. I'm gonna be calling about the rest of my life so please. Don't send me off with that wrong. This is in john. Twenty fourteen to sixteen proposal when i looked up. Yeah that's really really fun. It reminds so rob bell one of my dear friends. He talks about moses taking his sandals off when he sees the burning bush and he he has commentary is. It's not that that ground was wholly. It's that he became aware that the ground was holding. The ground was already holy. But who cares. This is my point honeysuckle honeysuckle until you are converted and awaken not the big buddhist awakening of of everything zooming out completely under saying the mini awakening of like wait. That's a mystery to the real fun one for people listening. Is you hearing this way. Ever like have someone explain to you. How the year works there's water. There's a crystal. That's what's in your ear. There's like tiny bones holding up it. Sounds like indiana jones and he has to go in and get the crystal. Do my theory is the human body and the solar system are both just complicated enough. That when you start explaining them ninety nine point nine percent of people lose interest and that just keeps the the game working go. Oh hearing is a vibration okay. It's vibrating liquid. What there's water in my ear. Yeah that's if vertigo is if you have too much water not enough and then there's a chris and like fuck i hear shit and that's who cares i'm done you know what i mean But the fact that you're hearing this this is an auditory honeysuckle. I don't mean the words. I'm saying the fact that i'm seeing you and the effortlessness i don't get tired of looking. It flows into me like water. It's it's a. it's an epiphany. Everything's an epiphany. I say it all the time but byron katie. Said if you're in your right mind every sound is the buddha and that and that is just. That's a psychedelic place. She's doesn't do psychedelics. Superfund but we live in a psychedelic. World if is greek for the appearance of the manifestation of stuff and i think the greatest epiphanies are just slowing down to either smell the honeysuckle or realized there were on this pale blue dots circling at sixty seven thousand miles an hour around the sun. The solar system is circling four hundred ninety thousand miles an hour on the milky way and the milky way is headed towards this great attractor one hundred and fifty light years away a thousand kilometers per second and here we are connected on zoom from north to south america talking about honeysuckle. This is it. I really think we have a deficit. And like a energy of cosmic energy to think and to hold those ideas in us. When we're at the grocery store you know what i mean like. It just gets flattened out and steam cleaned away and we just start talking about pants and we and that. That's actually what's beautiful about what you said. Let's say you just start talking about sports. Well guess what. The hound of heaven baby. God is waiting for you in the sports too. And he's waiting for you again. I'm using the metaphor. God and the and the pronoun he it's all the mystery is waiting for you in pants as well. You know what i mean like. There's no escaping it. Maybe honeysuckle isn't your thing. But i'm sure people are getting a sense of connection through snapchat. Even though is probably degrading their brain and some other way. What i'm saying is where can you go. where can you go. That isn't it everywhere and nowhere and this is why. It's so hard to talk about god to children. I was just talking to a friend yesterday about this Like i receive first communion.

"Music. Basically saying everybody's going to die. We're all going to die right now. I mean it is very tense. Made me laugh. I mean there's a lot of things in this movie that make me laugh but there's movie does very much like just touch the basis. Like you know. I think right now. We have a pallet in cinema where we can paint with multiple variations of color and this is nine talking about racial stuff. I'm just saying about like all the emotions of of the human spirit movie just does like the seven basic ones like we just kinda get. We don't go deeper than that. And i think the remake of bryan song which came out in two thousand and one With mci pfeiffer and sean. Mayor i touch a little bit more. About how the civil rights the integration. And what's going on in the country at that point is playing a part here and how that serves to actually draw them closer together and and it's a more integral part of their story because truthfully the chances that these two men would have become friends is not by choice. They were forced together. They were you know they were. They were integrated together and that forced relationship allows something really beautiful to blossom. And it's you know anything. They do acknowledge that and they pay that. You know that idea that this would never have happened. Another way but You know. I don't know if we had the we had the tools to do that. Especially in a tv movie especially as you're shooting this movie on the set of bewitched. I don't know if you feel like you can. You can hang. Yes yes that's interesting about the mci feifer version. Because i would not have guessed. It was a better film. I haven't seen it. I just watched a little bit of the trailer. And i was like. Oh god i'm not saying it's a better film. I'm just saying that they may that they may tackle it with a little bit. They can at least engage it a little bit more. I think it's a true story home. No one is calling dr smith. Just go see the doctor. The doctor here bigalow kit. They found a tumor interest of the courage of champions. You do what you gotta do you. Can you cut me up. Whatever what you have to leave enough of me left to get back on nephew. Because i am playing football again. The bonds of friendship road. Good burdwan i found out we were gonna be romans and strength in the face of tragedy. Tell you here and now. I accept this foot. Brian picolo tonight. But it's brian picolo tomorrow. I do have to say like the way that you know. Brian and gail handle race in here seems to be pretty much word for word exactly how they handled it in their friendship. They handled it just by making jokes about it constantly. Just kidding each other because they thought it was. They wanted to take the strangeness out of it through humor right so it is like when there's that scene win. Am journalists comes up to them in the locker room. And they're like what's it like to be roommates and brian makes a joke about how he just doesn't want him using the bathroom which totally went over my head until i thought about it. I thought it was. He said he was gross in the bathroom joke. No that's what i thought too. But it wasn't it wasn't it was about like integrated bathrooms. Wow okay yeah. I didn't catch that either. Okay okay. yeah yeah that's what it was. And then they didn't actually would include the next line which is then. The journalists turned to gale and gale s gaelic. What are you guys. talk about. Though engage said race relations so like all of this stuff in this movie. That made me gasp. You know like the slurs. The brian uses but later. Brian uses to make fun of like the scene. Where he's as. I'm having a new kid going to name it after you. It's going to be this slur like that is a line that he said in real life that it seems like gale laughed about in his book. But it's kinda of strange to watch it now like now. I'm like whoa whoa. Whoa whoa i mean. We have to talk about the n. Word scene right. Yeah i mean this is a really interesting case of of you. Know as we've tackled many movie that has dealt with that word You know we're we're not gonna play the scene. But i think we could talk about what purpose that scene serves in the film and basically brian picolo is trying to motivate gail to keep on pushing right and and the way i read it was you know like he's trying to make them angry like to get him angry like go and do the push through it any any any throws out this slur and The n. word and but but kind of like fumbles. It ito and and doesn't do it. The right way and to gail just starts cracking up and it just becomes this. I thought an incredibly joyful real grounded moment between these two men that has to be based in reality that has to be. This is story from the book one million percent because this is a moment that is did more for the friendship in me and showing me like what this bond wasn't how deep it was because of that. Were being so charged in that time but the safety that these two men had it in the way. That when you know gale's wife comes down and he kinda tells her what's going on and it it is all It wasn't making light of the word. It wasn't being used in a way it was it. Actually really Elevates this relationship and and the the power of these two men and the bond and the closeness so i think it's actually a really beautiful scene You know that is in the film using that word. Yeah i kind of call like one of the damnedest scenes. I've ever seen at the laughter. Full minute of laughter in that scene. And the what really. I popped out to me in. It is gale's understanding of who his friend was in like why his friend was saying it and calling it out like. That's the lamest motivation i've ever heard like. I can't believe you're trying to motivate me with something that obvious and gail knowing entrusting his friend enough to like not have there. Be confused is a we this weird like. It's like you shouldn't do that right. It's not cool. We'll look here's a thing but it happened mike. This is something that happened in this moment. That is for whatever reason it happened. He captured this thing in jail. Puts in the book to show like i in my mind in a world where especially at this time when that word probably is more charged you know. probably getting more and more to the point of understanding it. it not being acceptable And forgive me. If i'm wrong on that but it may thought being. I think that that scene shows a lot about where they are their relationship to each other. And that's why that scene is in the book that's why is in the film and And it's an interesting like. Oh wow like that tells me more than anything else you know about about them in a way you know. It's sort of like their comfort with each other. Going from these guys who you know galas somebody who's not able to open up to fr- anything and you know looks at brian with disgust. When we cusp and anger when it comes to try to even help them originally get back from this injury and the amount that they had to go through together to get to a place of ultimate support and trust and and it was really. I don't know that moment is a real big turning point not to say that that's something that we should aspire to you matt saying that at all but i want to respect gale and his story and why that is important for him to tell that story it's not it's.

If you WanNa get good at guitar you have to nerd out and just spent several years just sitting in your room you know figuring that out and that's not how you get good at comedy. But you gotta figure that out you got to figure out how to get better at. How do you spend that time? Just committing to and getting better stretching? Yeah. Yeah, and it is it can be analogous to that I mean both the practice thing and also even with comedy like there's nothing wrong with watching a ton of comedy, you know reading books like any sort of netting out. Well, you don't get better at anything by half ass get better by committing and in trying actually making the effort. That's the only way you get better at anything. Yeah. Getting to the point where you're learning to be yourself comes from having to do it a lot. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. The stage time right like you can't take a comedy less, right? Hey how do I be Brian Ross? Like. Yeah you got to figure that out. Thank you so much Brian Yeah. It was great chatting. This is awesome. Yeah. Nice. Talking to both of you. Thanks. Yeah. This is really fine. Yes. Good. Luck with the show September nineteenth. See How do the Big Guy will do?.

"Welcome back to the show. Okay so Monday morning. I get back on the phone with Brian Colon in from every song and he says hey so I went into our database. I looked at our Christmas playlist. We have eleven versions of. We wish you a merry Christmas in our database and Brian. Deane's is not among them. What yeah it was really weird on the Friday. He was like I recognize the song and on Monday. He was like. I don't know I guess I made a mistake because it's not there and I'm trying to think of possible reasons why that would happen. And he said that like one of the possibilities is maybe it is in our database is just not coming up in my searches you know. Is there the possibility that something happened with our systems? Something rogue happened and somebody uploaded a song and they got the artists the song title and some other things wrong in the Meta data entry. Sure it's just the whole cascading series of errors that would have to happen to kind of put a Phantom Song in there and get all the data wrong and then just to have ripped it off of Youtube in the first place which is something that we don't do the chances of that happening. It's kind of like a comet hitting a comet over your house right. So that's you know or or you know getting attacked by a shark and Grizzly bear the same day like it's you know it's not impossible and I can't sit here and say that it's impossible but I mean it really. I wrack my brain to think how it would be possible. So what's the other possibility? Well he also said like maybe it was never in our database at all. Maybe someone at a Kroger hacked into their their system and we're playing it off a CD. No but that's said that was as likely to bear attack. Yeah if you're going to hack into your corporate. I like his ability to rate probabilities. Millions according to horrific. If you're going to lake hack into like like when you have read every time had a retail job where it was like canned music and somebody like figure out how to get there and music on it wasn't to play like more seasonal hits like it was to play music that humans light. Listen I am so tired of this demon Martin Standard what. I really wanted to hack into from youtube players. You Merry Christmas so every song. Brian had like one last theory about what might have happened. Which at the time. I found very convincing. Which is then he just had like. Imagine yourself in brine shoes right. At the moment he walked into Kroger. You're in a grocery store a busy time of year. There's a lot of people. There's a lot of noise you know you're hearing bits and pieces. Maybe especially over the store speakers. Which sometimes aren't the best and you know stuff in the challenging environment. If you asked me to put money on it I would say you know this. It was probably a case of the song being this hurt in the store. It's difficult for me to say that I make music myself and it's difficult to say because you you know. If you'd asked me that question I would be one part of Barris. The one point. Maybe a little bit annoyed that you would ask the question in the first place. So he's saying it's like your clients mistake. Yeah what he's saying is like if you're in a circumstance where it's loud where your kids distracting. You like it's possible to miss hear your song and like sure. It's possible that Song Brian is lying to me and like I can't see their database and I have no idea whether he's telling the truth but like what's more likely. Is it more likely that ever song went on Youtube found a version of? We wish you. Merry Christmas. Like twenty-five views ripped it in violation of copyright law. Put it on their playlist to play and Kroger as all over the country and then Brian Deane just happened to walk into one as it was playing or is it more likely that he just misheard. The song like people miss here songs all the time also ever song. Brian told us that there is a version of. We wish you merry Christmas in their system. That does sound a lot like Brian. Deane's and he thinks that that is the likely hope bread. I don't know dude. I still just have a hard time imagining that. A musician would not recognize a song they recorded. I mean if it was an instrumental cover. It would make some sense to me but there was one thing that was nagging at me. Which is like do you remember how? I Talk to Allah. Brian's bandmates yeah one of them. This guy's AC. I asked him directly like. Do you think that Brian just could have misheard? His own song. Anzac was like honestly. Brian has one of the best ears of anybody that I've ever met. His ear is UNCANNY I can't imagine that he would be wrong. Brian like is the person who sends me clips of raised theme from Star Wars next to the emperor's themed show how they're how they're how similar and predicted the end of the Star Wars Movie. At least a little bit Based only on the musical themes from the first doors yes the soundtrack and and business on the recurring. Musical motifs came up with spoilers for the movie. Yeah what a lunatic insane so I just wanted to test Brian's ear like was he actually as good as that claimed he was. Now what you need to know about Brian. Is that beyond just star wars. He's like scores in general. Okay so I. I called up musician Brian and told him whatever song. Brian had told me that they couldn't find a song in the database and at first he was like really questioning himself. Do you think I'm crazy? I'm starting to think I'm crazy. And maybe all I mean a piano version with some drums and a base of We wish you merry Christmas may be sound similar. We aren't sure if you're crazy and we WANNA find out okay. So we have come up with a game that tests. How good you are at recognizing music. Oh Jeez and it will help us understand why you think that it was your song that you heard in the storm. Okay okay since I know that you are John Williams Fan and since Zach specifically mentioned your ability to pick out star wars music. I am going to play some star wars or not star wars music for you. Tell me if if it if it is from star wars or not we go. This is track number one star wars not stores..

"Yep I have definitely heard that. Get Out of here. You've heard it. Yeah they played it this last year at Kroger. That's amazing. How do you know that it was this one? How do you know it was this? One specifically is the person who recorded this going to hear this. Because I'm about to be mean I mean okay. Those valves are just like uniquely annoying and loud over the speakers staticky and they always would have hurt my head in the morning when I came in and heard it. But you're sure you've heard that before. I'm very sure note. I could sing it along in my hat did it. It very well thank you so remember. She's in Colorado but Brian's Kroger's Georgia that blows my assumptions out of the water because my assumption was this was a local kroger going rogue. You know what I mean. There's no way that a youtube song or make it onto the official sort of corporate branded. Here's your CD. Of Christmas music playlist. I know but then I got an email back from kroger and I was like finally. I'm going to get an answer for this. And they were like sorry. We actually don't make the playlists in our stores. We've outsourced that to another company and it's this company called in-store audio network. They really went for a descriptive name. I mean I feel like their slogan. Could be like does what it says on the tin. Yes they are a company that makes playlists or pipes music in not just a kroger but they've worked with CVS WAGMANS walgreens. It seems like a lot of pharmacies and grocery stores and also you know like when you're in the store and you hear the the thing over the over the speaker that's like this week get kroger special on Turkey. Boar's head Turkey three ninety nine. This thing's Phil you were just auditioning for that job. But yes I do know this thing. Do you think I get it? Yeah thank you. They also record those and put them in at random intervals so understandably. I became very curious about this company. Because why would they go to the fiftieth page of Youtube? Search results looking forever. We wish you merry Christmas. Why not just use one of the millions of Christmas songs that I already here every year? That's true like whether it's a mistake or a conspiracy. It is just weird thing that remains so weird as the obscurity of it so I actually developed a theory around this which is I e mail the CEO of in store audio network. And he got back to me but then when I explained what I was writing to him about like a song that mysteriously ended up on the Kroger playlist. He basically ghosted me. I tried following up with a couple of times no response and so I started thinking to myself like maybe the obscurity of the song is the point like if I were like a big music company and I was like trying to save money on royalties and I wanted to get a song that I didn't have to pay out for. I would go for some super scare song. I found with thirty views on youtube right. Because you're not going to get caught like if you like a Frank Sinatra at Christmas song. They'll finding three seconds. Yes so I continued today and I. I actually got in touch with someone who worked at the store audio network years ago. Okay interesting and they didn't want to have a record recorded conversation with me but they were willing to talk and based on what they told me the idea that in store audio network might have taken stuff off of Youtube actually started to make a little bit of sense. What they said was building Christmas. Music playlists is like its own special nightmare and is incredibly hard one of the hardest parts of the job. Why because it's just a much smaller pool of music to work with and the employees are constantly complaining about the songs. I'm sorry Sir like I'm sure it's hard and I wouldn't want to do it of all the things that there are too many songs about Christmas. Chris Pretty covered. I don't know man that's the case. Then why do I hear Why do I hear simply having a wonderful Christmastime six hundred times every Christmas season? Yeah actually. That's true that's true. It means a hundred and fifty songs. Maybe if you're too many and there's not enough so I asked the former in-store audio network employees like okay. Would you guys just download stuff off of Youtube? And they were like totally. Imagine them getting music from Youtube really. Yeah would not think that. Yeah and they were like listen again. I worked almost ten years ago Their process is different now. But at the time I was there we can totally totally imagine it So I'm like Oh okay well. That's Hella suspicious and I'm starting to like maybe in storage network is like Kinda sketchy. But then we have this breakthrough. Which is that we find out for. The last five years store audio network has been partnering with a different company. Called every song and ever song are the people who are actually responsible for picking the music for Kroger. Wait the one thing in Surat Ashby doing. They're not doing what they're doing. Is THE ADS? Like like fresh. Romain LETTUCE DOLLAR. Twenty nine now. In the GROCERY AISLE REQUIRES TWO SEPARATE COMPANIES TO MAKE. They have completely different jobs. Yeah how could a company ever produced audio and going on it? Seems I'm laying out facts. You know you think it's like it's already surprising to me and like everything in the world is more complicated than immediately meetings. It is and I'm sure this is hard. But it's like it's like Oh probably. The grocery store has somebody whose job is to pick the songs. Oh No that's actually a whole nother industry and company and actually they don't fully handle it. There's another company that has to do like the ads part of it. It just like everything is just like a weird little. Yeah everything's a weird little. I agree with you and I'm sure it's complicated and hard in ways. I can't picture but I have no idea what those are besides Christmas songs. Just the thing that you need to know is that in-studio network used to do this stuff. But now they outsource it to ever song so I reached out to every song and they were like yeah. We're happy to talk. It's just that we're really busy right now. Because we're doing a bunch of change orders and I was like what the fuck is a change order and oh I have a theory. Would it change order? Go Ahead. Is it like? There's all these songs on these playlists that are suddenly inappropriate because of corona virus. That is exactly right and they were apparently trying to deal with those songs for like a couple of weeks. And then finally the co-founder reaches out and he's like okay. I can talk. Where are you right now in South Carolina? Okay Yeah I actually did a Family member I had to go check on so my goodness is your family member. Okay yeah yeah everything's Okay but We just You know the at this time. You don't take any chances so we know it's such a weird scary time. This is Brian Kalinin from ever saw. I'm sorry but there are two Brian's in the story now and part of the reason that they've been so busy lately and maybe you wouldn't have guessed this from the conversations that I had with kroger employees but like the amount of thought and time that ever saw him puts into the playlist that you hear. The grocery store is bonkers generally the music that we plan grocery stores isn't very somber to begin with you. Know Scientifically Geek out for a moment. I do that's that's it. We measured the beach per minute of what we thought. A shopping cart pace was and we usually try to keep inside this promise. And that's what the songs that we use so in other words you're not getting a song that too fast or too slow soon and the songs that you're playing is the is the tempo at which people's footfalls go so they're Kinda in step with the that's right 'cause you don't want to get out of cadence with the rhythm shopping if you will so you know generally within that within that range you're dealing with songs that are mostly kind of uplifting to begin with however you know there's some stuff lyrically or just even by illusion that you might you know that we're cognizant of in you know the way we look at it as hated. Those songs can wait. What are the songs that are like it's cool to get diseases? It's off on your friends. Like what are the? He wasn't specific about it but like I don't know Doctor Doctor. GimMe the news. Y- okay I wouldn't want to hear that Hot blooded hot blooded check it and see got a fever of one hundred three rocking pneumonia and the boogie. Woogie flu is that a real star. Now hold on. I don't know you do.

"So the first and most obvious thing that I wanted to look into was that Brian said the only place on the Internet he put the song was on Youtube. But he's just one of four members of the band that recorded it so one of those people could have you know published somewhere or given it to someone who worked at the. Macon Kroger so I wanted to like get in touch with his bandmates and I got in touch with this guy. John Who Played Guitar. Played Bass on it. Can you think of any reason why it would be there? I can only attributed to someone's impeccable taste but you weren't like sending you weren't like secretly uploading this to spotify or or sending executives or anything I have. I have a CD tower. That I can. And I think I made about fifty copies gave them out to six or eight people. And that's it and I don't know that I gave it anybody who lives in making and then there was Johnson. Zach Hazak. Yes this is Alex Goldman. How're you doing? And he was like no wasn't me? I did not pass it onto anyone. In fact I was a couple years old lots going on. I'd almost forgotten that we done the project me on this so there was one last possibility. Which is this guy named Miguel? Who played drums on the track but he didn't even remember ever according it in the first place so. I'm pretty sure it wasn't him who leaked it to kroger right okay. So if Brian and his bandmates didn't know how the song ended up at the Kroger. Maybe the people that work at that Kroger might have some idea so I decided to give them a call department. They help you yes. We call the floral department because our belief was that it wouldn't be so busy and they would have a moment's talk. Ooh I like that. Yeah do you know where the music that the that is played over the speakers at Kroger comes from? Oh No I do not. I mean I'm assuming they have their own radio station they use. I mean I really don't then. She transferred me to the customer service desk at her store and they were like. I have no idea where the music comes from is piped in from somewhere so I was like well. It's probably piped in from like Kroger corporate so I decided to call the National Kroger Customer Service Line and they were also like we have no idea. Honestly I'm not sure that they get Pandora. Sure they suffer there. I'm not really sure about it. He didn't know the answer. I started sending emails to people at Kroger Corporate. In the meantime I was just calling Kroger. Employees like all across the country. Just trying to get a sense of how music in the store even works just like would it be possible for some rogue employees to like grab the Oxford and plug in their iphone? There's really no way to do that. Unless you're using the The like the intercom own kind of music. That plays all the time in the store. Yes so there. There's no way for me to adjust like the station. I I can just volume and that's got it also. Pj if you really want to curb employees. Just ask him about the Christmas music you you think of the worst Christmas Music. You've never heard that's like can you give me some examples? Santa Claus and every song it wasn't it wasn't like the song you know. Listen to you. It's the bad cover version by someone you've never heard of. One woman said that one time she was in the store and she heard five different versions of Jingle Bells back toback. Oh can you imagine? It's so painful. Yes there's a lot of room for like jazz. Improvisation and that's either no. You can't really make it your own. Also it was a total long shot but while I had him on the phone I played them Bryan Song to see if they recognized it. Sis familiar to you at all it. Very welcome plate over the holiday but I but then there's this one woman who worked at a kroger in Colorado. Does this ring a bell.

"On? This one is much more confounding because the more I worked on it like the less certain I became the answer and I basically come out the other side believing two contradictory things simultaneously which is absolutely painful for my very linear brain which is incapable of abstraction of any kind. Okay so my hope is if I tell you the story you might be able to help me come closer to understanding where the truth lies okay. I can't promise I will like insightful. Fighting the truth but I'm excited to see if Ivan. Pinon think of this less as a super tech support more as a philosophical journey on the nature of truth all right do you WanNa do you WanNa wear like professor. Jackie tweet out. I was actually thinking about a tiny I was actually thinking in. The tradition of the classic Philosophers Wear Toga and one of those rings of like of like leaves that they wear around their years. Okay what's the story so we heard from a listener named Brian? Deane who got in touch with us just after Christmas. He lives in Savannah Georgia. He works for Gulfstream. The company that makes the airplanes. Hey Brian can you hear me good? How are you and this story actually started a few years ago when Brian got a new piano. Extremely excited about having this piano and to celebrate that I had a couple of friends who play the saxophone and the drums and bass and recording equipment. I said let's do Christmas album Just through the joy of having piano So we recorded a Christmas album in my living room as wholesome friend activity. I know right so that was back in two thousand sixteen and he uploaded it to Youtube. He burned a couple copies for family and friends and he basically forgot about it and then this past Christmas is driving back from a family visits Chicago when his daughter has to p so they stop in. Macon Georgia says about three hours from their house at a kroger because and I didn't realize this brand is like the grocery stores the best place to go back from because no one's ever in the bathrooms love of grocery store bathroom so they get out of the car. They hustle into the grocery store and sort of like midway down the aisle. He stops and looks up. I was in the frozen food department. And they're playing Christmas music. This is December thirty first. He stands there staring at the speaker above him. Because it's playing a version of we wish you a merry Christmas with a piano. Part feels very familiar. The first thought that went through my mind was oh. I thought I made up that piano. Lick on we. You Merry Christmas but I must have stolen it or heard it from somewhere because here it is playing and then as I listened a little more. Oh my God I didn't steal the slick this is me. Brian is convinced that the version that he heard a kroger is the exact one that he made in his living room. So here. And what's going through your mind when you hear yourself on the a speakers at the Kroger. I mean just complete disbelief. Just shock absolute shock but by that point. I had made it to the bathroom so there was literally another guy in there and I couldn't contain myself. You know and bathroom medicate law number one. It was like and I got. I got to say something. This is crazy but I did this in my living room so funny. I think he actually sets up to like well. That's that's cool man. How can this possibly happen that one? I'd be playing there and to literally be there to hear it. It was. It was a bizarre experience so he is hearing his own version of we wish. Merry Christmas and a kroger but he didn't publish it or sell it to Kroger Corporate. Anything like that no okay. Do you want to hear it right here? We go the other thing. You should know that this is number thirty seven of this song on Youtube and at least five of those views are looking at it in preparation for this kind of a jazzy version yet. He's a jazz. I was wondering how you recognize. It was his but I feel like it is actually distinct. Recognize that right okay. So it's like the grocery store is either pirating music off of Youtube or one of his friends stole the music and sold it to the grocery store. I have no idea but right. After he used the bathroom. He rushed over to the customer service desk and it was like what's going on here and they were friendly but just kind of came up with a lean over and yelled to someone else. How do we play music? And they said Oh something like I had to Muzak And I kind of I kind of got the feeling These people. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to push this with them. What I want it to be. Is that ninety nine percent of the time they just use like some paid for you know legitimate music licensing thing that this one time just like somebody at Kroger just heard this and they loved it so much that they needed to hear it in the store I used to do you know the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas now Mannheim. Steamroller is like a prog rock Christmas stuff. And it's that sounds bad and worse than you can possibly and I used to I. I used to work at a convenience store where they played the the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas album from November to January and it was the worst adventure where they played like this one cassette tape that I swear to God only head Monster Mash and attack of the killer tomatoes both good songs the first two thousand times shore so he asked me to answer two questions for him. The first one obviously is like how did the song get there and the second was like if this song is being piped into Kroger's all over the country he should get the money. Are they do any money and how much they're definitely do some money. You Take People's music and play it right so that was my mission okay..

"That's the same as also in the northeast part of the United States in a in a fictional town yeah so I think you know early on. It was just trying to fall there. Steps a little bit but even before that you know it's just trying to draw as many comics as I could. You know it got really good at drawing like Garfield and I'd love of disease and religious early sketches drawings on the back of jeans jackets for kids in high school and you sold them right. There was a couple of guys you want him. You Know Hey can you aerosmith uh-huh oh God. That's a tough one. I embroidered yes. Yes logo on the back pocket of a pair of jeans. I had yeah yeah. I had those for a really long time. One of my big collection regrets not having kept though I know I know I'm kind of ashamed. Not have that didn't make it in high school portfolio. It's right right now. In College. You had another mentor Ron Menard who was a former editor of the Patriot news. Who advised you to never work for a newspaper. So why is that and then. Why didn't you heed his advice. Yeah I mean he was a he was in editor at the Patriot News in Harrisburg and I interned at the Startup magazine that that he had begun called the Harrisburg city paper or something like that and it went on to become like Harrisburg City magazine so I was doing everything from doing illustrations for undoing some of the paste up work you know this was early days of the computer kind of thing in the thing that Ron was great about was showing me the value working really hard but also the really I mean. Didn't you already get that from Your Dad. I did but but he was showing me in a way that was more aligned with creatively what I was going to be doing. My Dad applied the work ethic thing and then Ron was showing me some of the opportunities that might exist for the talent that I was starting to to show but the cool thing about Ron was that he showed me that like okay at six o'clock. We turn off the lights at the shop and we go home and we celebrate life. You know we you know we would go to have great dinners. We have glass of wine. You know we'd you the race tracks with the whole family kind of thing and it was it was just a kind of celebration of you'd always have music playing in the evening. He played the piano so it was it was kind of really interesting interesting balance between living and working. You know that I hadn't I hadn't really seen before early on in your career. You were doing a lot of work for business magazines and then on the weekends cans you'd disappear into pen and ink drawings in your sketchbook. Would you said lead you to a bit of a split personality some art directors and happened to see see your personal work and that's the type of material that they wanted from you. What was that like for you. At the time. It was really hard me. You were successful one thing desirous of doing something very different. Exactly you know I wasn't happy with the work that I was necessarily doing because it didn't feel like as if I was offering it distinctly as my own voice and the other thing that was real interesting thing was was the types of stories that I was being asked to illustrate. Were nothing like the types of stories that I wanted to be telling with my drawings right so for instance. If I'm doing something about computer you know like a modem or something you know. This is early days as right if I'm doing something like that but then I'm reading the Atlantic and there's this really interesting narrative piece or rolling stone has great feature and it's you know it's it's more like documentary entry style drawing on some level and there's a real kind of emotional component to those essays that I felt was completely lacking in my work a certain point I needed to kind of push a little bit harder and so when I started doing these pen and ink drawings and my sketchbook I started showing them around you know to our directors and friends who were designers that I respected and and you know I wanted opinions and you know Paul Sarah. Someone Leeann chapter was another person I sent some two but it was just xerox copies of black and white line art and with my name on the you know Manila envelope on the outside or something my phone number and I started generating work in that lead to more than you know. As for the style you began to develop Ella you said you found the less you added in the images the more emotionally impactful the pieces became and wondering if you could elaborate on that a little bit how did that simplicity actually create more resonance yes. It took time to get that too. I think a lot of what we're talking about some of that growth that happens. There's an artist you know you you find your visual voice or your stride in a certain point and a lot of it is experimentation a lot of it's failing and I think some of that early work though it was keeping me busy you know it was a lot of just letting the line we're kind of percolate to the top and then just scraping away all the phone you know what I mean of collage or mixed media things a lot of things that I was doing well in in school just a lot of searching right and then once you kind of find that mark it was more like okay okay this feels right and all these other things don't they feel unnecessary on some level and I think for those no my work no that I rarely ever show a kind of emotional feature on the faces of the characters that I draw they tend to be a bit more reserved in in that kind of illustrative device that a lot of people tend to rely on. I think about it more in terms of how close or distant people are from one another the gesture of someone like if someone when has their head down and they're sitting on the edge of bed and the light sir darker colors more muted that is so much more powerful than if you just show tears dropping from the corners of people's is right but it took time to get to that place where I understood that on my work there are very few illustrators that I think are really successful at capturing during that gesture I think your one I think Alison Bechtel is one. We talked about that when she was on the show and Chris ware where you can literally create an emotion with gesture align yeah which is just remarkable yeah. Thanks No. It's those two artists are amazing you know and Chris Rock Star you know and but he's someone that really can it feels emotional. It feels psychological on some but it also is like that vacancy of space not only in just individual frames but in in terms of how he designs a whole page you know he's masterful at it. There's a Swedish filmmaker name. Roy Anderson who's incredible doing. It's a lot of a lot of it. oftentimes is just spacing closer far apart. People are from one another can really define a lot and say a lot about a story without you. Actually having to oversell or Overcook can idea you've been illustrating the New York Times modern love column now for many years disclosure. Here's the first thing I read right now because it's also something you can now read on Fridays. It's pretty much the first thing I'll read in the New York Times on Friday. No matter what after all this time I'm your iconic illustration still captured the essays in the most brilliant of ways. You've described how you don't replicate the writer stories one hundred hundred percent but rather create a parallel story. Is this still your approach yeah yeah. I think you know as an illustrator. You know someone's calling on you to create a universe to create a whole new world for readers or viewers to kind of experience and I think if I was just going to recreate the same story might it'll just take a photograph and I'm not a great photographer. How did you first get the modern love Gig. I would say it's almost ten years. and there were two other illustrators that were doing it before me. Chris Neal was the one who is doing it just before me is amazing amazing love his work. I don't really really know why they switch gears because I thought he was doing a really lovely job but I think because I was an art director ago. You know my sense. Is that art directors you you carry with you the artists that you love working with and that you really enjoy appreciate and I suspect maybe they wanted some kind of change in it on some level but you know that's a question for them. Oh yes now I know you have good working relationships with your editors but do you ever get pushback or feedback from writers in the way that some of the writers writers and editors get pushed back or feedback from readers not as much from the right usually if I if I hear from a writer it's hey thank thank you so much for you know you've captured something or the tone of the piece. You know you really kind of you know you nailed it or something like that. I don't think I've ever received an email from mm. Someone say hey you blew it which you know I'm. I'm grateful that I haven't yet having said that. Readers will reach out and they will say hey. Do you miss this or you might have tried doing this on really the feedback on your illustration. I I read it all respond to all of it because it's super valuable you now. I mean when you're doing something as long as I've been doing this this column you. There is the concern that you kind of get into a routine right or you kind of rely on you know familiar. Thanks so to get that feedback is super valuable. You know and I really appreciate it when when it comes in and we had a there was one a reader who had read a piece yes it has been posted online and oftentimes pieces of personal line prior to them being printed of great and she caught something in a piece and it was about ethnicity and what she caught was something that I had caught but I hadn't I can't remember exactly the ethnicity of of the character in the piece but I tend to do a lot of the work in layers in photoshop the finish work most withdrawn by hand at first but I hadn't turned on one of the layers for skin tones and the reader immediately you know had emailed me and said hey you know this is is this is not right and she was hundred correct and you know I called The Times as soon as I got that email and I said hey we we need to fix this and you know good on the Times they you. You know they did immediately. You know because they recognize this. You know it's important..
