Pandemic Economic Impact in Florida
"Now, as we continue down the back half in 2020 we are receiving reports showing the true impact of the pandemic across the country, and when it comes to the economy, the news predictably brutal, right hued shop lost income loss loss of businesses. And also, of course loss of tax revenue to government. But there's also been another trend. As bad as the economic impact of the pandemic has been as that veneer is bad, as was predicted at the onset, for example, according to the Federal Reserve, as recently as June So in the final months of the second quarter bed was expecting the second quarter economy to contract by 53%. Now. The actual decline, which was 32.9% huge, No doubt it was record setting, but it was still nowhere near as cataclysmic as the projections right and it looks like we have something similar. Playing out in Florida as well. Give you 90 according to Yelp. There are 3000 small businesses which have been lost in South Florida during the pandemic. These businesses employed approximately 60,000 people, Significant impact. Oh, heck, yes. Big deal. It is bad as earlier projections not even close, given idea well and have projected the Southport a Metro to be the fourth most negatively impacted nationally and that kind of small businesses. Was actually About in line in line with the national average. To the news was better still statewide is reflected through the collection of tax revenues, according to a report from the Urban Institute, State and local finance Initiative. Borders tax revenue, the decline from March through May. It was less than the national average A nationally states reported a 29% decline in revenue here every year. For us to con was 26%. That's right, our states the kind With 3% better than what happened across the country. So Look, I think it was logical to think that Florida would have been won the hardest hit states. Given the reliance and tourism and entertainment, However, that's not playing out. So why I boiled it down to three different factors that are likely behind this first for his economic record performance heading into the pandemic, second snowbirds staying for the summer. And third unemployment benefits totaling more than the average income for those laid off on average in our state, So it's kind of like this with a record low 2.8% unemployment rate in Florida in February, going into this thing that gave us a lot of a backstop. We lose in the second quarter in the normal year, approximately 900,000 snowbirds Many of them stayed. Many of them are still here. And then you have the unemployment benefits for the average 40 in whatever point they successfully navigated. The Boche connect system. And got their unemployment benefits. The average Floridian laid off actually did receive more than they had while they were working before. So these are all economic tail winds that have led to a better than average performance performance in south border

We're not going to see the titles that would go down to the store and bio or digitally download go away completely. But this will certainly expand the offering and again put you on the hook for 14 95 a month. You know, well, the only thing I can say is I know my son's still sleeping. Hopefully he didn't hear this and hopefully he won't hit me up for when I get Home today. So, Brian, thanks very much for your time this morning that is tech expert Brian Westbrook. We're back with

One-Third of New York’s Small Businesses May Be Gone Forever
"York. Times. Yesterday had a story saying that two-thirds. Check that one third of the small businesses in New York City are not gonNA survive covert will be gone by the end of the year in the course of one calendar year New York City will lose one third of its small businesses I've tried to look to see if anybody's done any similar analysis of upstate businesses and they haven't But if that's one part of New York state, you've gotta expect that it could be similar in this other part of New York state, the loss of one third. Of these businesses is corre thick and the one thing to understand. One thing that's that we don't often think of about small business is Small business is most commonly the way that a person significantly raises their family's financial position, right you. You can move from lower middle class, upper middle class or even higher e- through small business. Now, you can also lose everything right but you know you start out I'm a plumber I'm eight va see or I opened a restaurant and or I'm a processing paychecks or whatever like that, and if it catches you can grow and you can. You can increase your position the the the best ladder. Economically and again education is the key allows you to have a job lousy to build up but unless you're education like medical doctor or something like that, if you can be successful in a small business that's a very good way up the economic ladder when you knock that ladder out from underneath one third of the people who are on it, that's a pretty heavy hit.
Biden’s Top Running-Mate Contenders Emerge as He Enters Key Week
"So here's the thing with Biden's process. NBC reported that he is supposed to meet with all of these potential picks this week by midweek and judging counting on my fingers, let's see mid week that would be tomorrow. So if you're going to meet by midweek that's tomorrow. Hump Day. Kamala Harris, Karen Bass are two of the front runners Susan Rice. She's 100 front runner and then Additionally, NBC says Congresswoman Val Demings from Florida is under consideration. And Senator Elizabeth Warren. But there right now considered the also rans that he is in a position right now where he's thinking Kamala Harris, Karen Bass or Susan Rice for his top three Now, This is pretty interesting, because one we were familiar with Susan Rice. She's you know, a neo con, deeply conventional person in Washington D C very much to return to the status quo. She's very Lying comes very easily to her. She's been doing it for years. She doesn't mind doing it to the American public s o. She would do whatever it is that the Biden campaign needs and restore the status quo to Washington, which everyone's really amped up for. It can't wait to get back to the old days on. That's what Susan Rice would represent. And then there's Kamala Harris, who, for whatever reason, is under consideration in the midst of this giant conversation around police and law enforcement injustice. They decided to go for a prosecutor who treated people deeply unfairly left exonerating evidence off the table that would have helped people on death row in prison people for marijuana usage and then later laughed about her own marijuana usage, flaming hypocrite in all of those ways, so she's out there, both of them rather well known, but there's 1/3 person. And it's congresswoman, Karen Bass from California, and she is one of the least scrutinized people at the national level in all of American politics. And for that reason, Boy, have you noticed how many stories and headlines have popped up in the last few days about her past and about what she has said and done. I wondered to myself if she's regretting being part of this screening process for VP If she's like, Oh, man, the senator not well for me all my skeletons air coming out of the

That's okay with me and I think if they really don't want Ben Affleck showing up, put it in a city that doesn't have Dunkin donuts. I guarantee you. Not Going. There for some reason I mean honestly I have to say I don't know why I'm leaning towards this being true but I sort of believe it.

And you can grow with and maybe they start outside the house maybe eventually you're like, Hey, let's have toothbrushes in the same room. Let's try that out for a little while. Yeah, I feel like with Charlene I think that also when you are single for such a long time, you kind of get set in your ways and just having the idea of someone come in and just rearranging things becomes really daunting and just quite frankly really annoying and to be honest Shirley's does not need to settle. She doesn't need to do anything that is inconvenient for her at all. So like I. Totally under understand her mindset of like I don't. Yeah.

"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..

"Okay. Yeah this her hip differently right now. See You remember that we? We spoke to a former employee of the install radio network on background. Told me like the company was so desperate for Christmas music that the idea that they would go to Youtube and Grab Bryan. Song was like not insane to them. Brian from ever song did actually confirm the first part of that theory. Which is they are slammed. Every holiday season but also. He told me that this season just keeps getting longer. I remember a study that we read That was testing number Christmas songs and of testing the appetite public appetite for for the very songs that we're talking about the most familiar. Christmas songs and what came back was people you know. Sixty to seventy percent in in in that range of the people in the survey were saying. You can't start early enough you know. It was a little bit of a surprise for us but it's so people will say one thing I think. Think and say well. It's kind of a trope Christmas music. I here in it but deep down inside. They like hearing a little Christmas music and in October. Apparently so if people like to hear the songs around October like how early do you have to start thinking about Christmas? Season programming like what to Wednesday July? That's a whole process. It's it's it's like we we mobilized for war in around August. Yeah so I was starting to feel like I was on the right track and I asked every Song Brian. Hey can I play you musician? Brian's we wish you every Christmas and when I did ever Brian was like Oh yeah I recognize that he recognizes yes. I believe that was part of our Christmas. Mix that we put together I WANNA I WANNA say. The song was probably used within the last two years or so. He said that he was pretty confident that he'd heard this before because they listen to their holiday playlist in the office over the holidays. They eat their own dog food. Yeah basically that's like how Matt Lever was like wanted and one this argument but was like we should have in the bathrooms Gimblett. We should have not premium but free spotify because we should have the experience of listening to ads because listeners. Listen to ads which was like the most. I don't think I've ever disagreed. Philosophically with Matt harder the net decision and every time. I go to the bathroom makes me. But it's idiots mentality don't WANNA go into it. Got New big fight with madly R- about that you did or yeah really. I was like I thought I was crazy. I got into a big fight with him where it's basically like. I don't understand what you're doing this. You're making this a less pleasant place to work while you do that so I felt and he was like in his response was like you. Yelling at me is making this less pleasant place to work. And that's probably right and first of all this is on slack. So I'm not yelling at you very strongly you have a very you have like when you're yelling over dykes. It's very odd yelling slack voice but but I thought that I could move him in any direction but he is so certain that this is a great thing that he's doing the worst is spotify now runs. Ads For reply all Someti- oh so I get to be pooping and hear my own voice it rules. It's like a nightmare from him so bad anyway. They played Christmas including Brian. Deane Song So. I asked Brian from ever Sung. How they got their hands on it. How would ever song end up with programming song like that? I guess I would say I would ask your listeners. If they uploaded the song to Maybe the CD baby You have deals with a number of smaller companies. I don't think that he did. He told me that the only place he really put it up as Youtube. Is that a thing where ever song or in store audio network will look for songs on Youtube. If that was the you know I I don't. I don't believe that we've ever just onto YouTube Now so I would. I would say that I did. They have any CD's made I think they burned their own CDs like they actually just had a town like one of those CD burning towers on their computers and just burned it that way. Yeah that's interesting. I mean I have to look but I can tell you You know just by the way that we work It would have to come through. An aggregate or a hundred percent of our music comes from those aggregate is so Ryan was basically like these aggregated that we work with have just massive massive music libraries. And so it'd be stupidly labor for them to go hunting for new Christmas songs on Youtube. That weren't even in the format that they need them to be into play in the store. It's easier for us to to be provided with a file. That's you know in a in what they call a Kodak compression technology that you're ready to go Sort a little bit of a mystery. Then yeah he was out of town when this when I had this first conversation with him but he said look. I'm going to go back to our office. Check in our database. And then I'll be able to tell you exactly how we got this song so this first interview was on a Friday and he told me to call him back on Monday. And at this point I am super stoked because I'm like we're going to figure out how this song ended up in Kroger after the break. Brian.

"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..

"Telecommuting. The things that could have been done in an email as opposed to a meeting are starting to be done in an e mail as opposed to a meeting We're figuring out how to zoom conference with one another one of the challenges though and this is this is an issue This is something. We're seeing education but also just seeing it in life in general is that there are issues with being able to read somebody's body language and really understand what they're saying when you communicating digitally when you're in a space with somebody your brain unconsciously subconsciously read so many cues about what their intent is and how they're thinking what they're saying to put context to what's going on and that's really hard to To See in a zoom conference. There's a big emotional toll that comes from that because our brains are working in overdrive with the sub-conscious reading and trying to figure out what's going on and so we're we're we're we're struggling with that and there's an emotional toll that can come from connecting online and we have to recognize the bed. Emotional toll is there and that. That's not the only way we should be connecting We don't want to move into a world where everything's in. Vr and the only way we ever connect with people is through a screen because there is that need for the connection the personal connection to be in the same space together. But in the meantime we can use these tools. That are so much better than they were before. Just think of what had happened if this happened. They making eighty s And how little connection? We would have with one another Think about the Spanish flu and the Challenges. They have their In just one hundred years ago the technology of today has certainly helped keep us socially connected even as we are physically distanced. Yeah that's great point. It's made a huge difference in the way that we can communicate. I mean we. We sat down played games with our kids. I mean it just. It's so different than getting together face to face but it doesn't mean you can't get together and I think that's really the key to all of this and to search it out to be part of that community and just engage so Brian. This has been a very positive and uplifting way of looking at the difference between social distancing and physical distancing and I think it gives us hope. That's what we want right. We want hope we can get back to normal someday. But in the meantime we're going to get through this together right. I certainly think we will and we'll come out stronger and I will be really excited to go out and have steak when I'm with you.

"brian" Discussed on The Moment with Brian Koppelman
"Hey is the moment I'm Brian complimented thanks for listening today's guest is you not in some crazy Meta sense but you are today's guests because I asked on here and on twitter for your questions and the response some of your questions surprise me some didn't surprise me there was a good deal of I'd say similar concern expressed a lot of it had to do with some kind of insecurity about whether you should be tried to do this kind of work creative work or not and I'm GonNa give you my best answer to each of these questions as I can get to you need to know that I don't necessarily hold myself out as having definitive answers these questions and some of them are quite difficult to answer with any authority for anyone especially the Russian I got many times which is how do I know if I'm good enough and the reason that that question is so hard to answer and why it's so prevalent is the same in it's because it's a foundational primal early life question and question that has as much to do with the way you were raised the way you grew up the way your parents express love didn't express love as it is is about whether you're really a good enough artist so there are there are things one can look at metrics one can look at it can view an indication of whether your impulses toward this artistic life seemed to have a chance to hey some kind of dividends to you but I don't believe that's at the heart of the question at the heart of the question is the desire for some outside force to tell you not only are you good enough is your work good enough you essentially are good enough that you don't have to a change that you don't have to run the fastest store that you don't have to learn to walk the fast stored who read the fastest but dead in fact what you are made of is worthy of Love Sport Protection respect all that stuff and so if you're somebody who asks that question frequently about the work you're doing and I want to separate it out right because yes it's a very legitimate question to say hey I wrote this short story I've sent it out about twenty times it got rejected Twenty Times Hey Mrs Editor Ms Editor Mr editor mix editor hey is this story essential really fucked up or Ken this story be fixed that's quite a different question from am I good enough am I crazy and I want us to be clear about which question we're asking and I want us to be clear about why where asking that question and and one of the questions you can find an answer for kind of easily or in a kind of straightforward manner and often the answer that one we don't know yet the easy one right is if you wanna quit because or if you want to try to sell the things you can on to me the the question was do I still get something out of doing the creative work if I still get something out of doing the creative work that I'm gonNA keep doing the creative work and I'm and as long as the creative work is making me feel more alive during the day not less alive during the day as long as the creative work is inspiring me as long as it's making me seem kind or those that I love because I'm engaged in something that matters to me then the more I'm going to do it and that was magnitude before we sold I gripped if instead it is pulling you down then I would look at it but I wouldn't look at it from a standpoint of has the thing sold yet or I wouldn't let that be the definitive thing and whether you continue you or you don't continue continue as long as the work is fulfilling continue as long as when you get up in the morning that's the thing you WanNa do now that doesn't mean it's easy to do that doesn't mean you're never dealing with a sense of feeling either blocked or stopped somehow what I'm talking about when you look at it overall is it additive to your existence or is it taking something away from her existence and if you can answer sleet it's additive than I you know I think keep going because I don't really understand how to give advice in the opposite direction I don't really I in the purpose of giving advice in the opposite direction and I'm not surprised this is the most frequently asked question I've said many times that the line between being has successful artists in delusional very thin and that line when I say it is true but there is a little bit of glibness to it because it it subtracts the pain of not knowing so I I understand that there is a pain of not knowing I understand there's a fear attached with not knowing but that's the terrain we're in the terrain of creating stuff for the terrain of making stuff the terrain of changing things by definition were in scary terrain and I choose to embrace it aw and yet easy from my perch on a certain level because I've had success at it and because I've had rewards people also I'd be lying if I didn't say that the fact that people respond to the work didn't matter to me it does it makes it easier in the fallow periods to know that on the other side is the very real possibility of an audience because I had one before so that in the times when it wasn't going so well commercially I didn't really ask myself whether I was a person who could tell these stories do this that had been proven to me already that said in the beginning that was the case and I just knew I had to do it and so that's the answer to sort of the most frequently asked question and think it's a very deep question and I understand it and now let's move on to a couple of other questions and maybe will circle maybe circle back so what's the next question I want to answer okay it's related Jacqueline said this quote of yours is so powerful to me in the quote is blocked people become toxic they become toxic themselves into the people around them and the person wrote in says I recognize so many my own family members in this quote people who could have had bruin creative lives and instead became toxic how void the same fate and get unblocked we're living in among these people has led me to believe that create a fulfilled life is not for me I specially struggle with this because I benefited from my parents stable career choices Sinoe college and yet I see how they denied their own dreams and desires for mine never became fulfilled people yeah well me too uh not the they didn't become fulfilled people my parents both of them in their own way were and are fulfilled my mom passed away my dad's still thriving but I definitely also had college paid for the people who were responsible I've often talked about the fact that one of the reasons I was able to dream and live a life that was beyond life of just trying to take care of me and mine was because I didn't know college debt I had family that there was a safety net there for me I college paid for an I could figure out how I wanna live but the question of how to get through the block for me as complicated as it is as disturbing it is and you know I was blocked writer until I was thirty this is my foundational story and it's true Until I found a way through so painful to be blocked by felt that toxicity thing happening and I didn't want to be toxic to those that I loved and I did straightforward things I I wrote down what I wanted to be doing how I wanted to feel and I knew that was doing something creative I couldn't do it and I read the book the artist's way Julia Cameron I started doing morning pages everyday three longhand pages every morning and doing the morning ages something happened and reading her book and doing the exercises and I would say her book and Stephen Fields Book the war of art and I pressed field on the podcast I those tools are just they work if you do it if you do the way if you read the book can you do the exercises you will be presented with the opportunity to get past this block and to create the work that you WanNa Create I can't say that strongly enough the power of three longhand pages every morning it tips your unconscious tips your subject watches out onto the page it could you pass the perfectionism it gets you past the guilt which you here in your letter guilt but he in your even if your family tells you they want you to responsible the truth is they did all this work so that you can try to soar parents terrified side of their children not being able to survive so their fear is GonNa make them look at you askew if you are trying something different in that but that's fear don't let that don't catch that fear it's contagious don't catch it and just do a little bit of work every day into this this idea one page today for years three hundred and sixty five pages even one page day for a year minus Sundays or Saturdays is over three hundred pages so and that's three screen plays where that's a novel you don't have to carve a giant chunk of time or you have to do is produce a little bit of work every day and then you'll find yourself living a life that feels a bit more.

Whether you're just going to be like we're loping I mean, we're not dealing with this definitely is some pros and cons to all things, I think, on this week's episode of Brian Mel get married. We are covering wedding registries who this is where I get stuff. Yes, you did. This is where people give me stuff. Yes, or us. But yes. And really fancy like three hundred dollar nights sent. I mean you can register for it, but somebody supposed to buy that really fancy three hundred dollar knife set. So what's the deal with wedding registries? Why did that start? Why is that a thing? Why do I get to put my name on a list and have people? Get me stuff. Well originally really had nothing to do with you. It would have to do with me. Oh. Actually, wait, wait. No, no. Are you sir? I'm pretty sure like we're going to start talking about, like wedding dowries and stuff. Right. Still technically to do well, yes, dowries go back, but they still technically to do with the bride because it was, essentially you and your family. Hang my family for me. How much? Twelve dollars seventy five cents the same amount. It was willing to spend on my college being invited to the wedding. Usually it would include, you know, land animals treks of land, money or other forms of historical wealth. Historical. Well, sure. Yeah. Basically, interestingly enough the first week four dollars. The first recorded dowry was exchanged in three thousand BC. Okay. That's that's all well and good. But how do we go from me getting huge tracts of land to people getting maker? Yeah. You gotta fast forward on this because as time went on things changed as marriage change. What marriage mentioned evolved. Yes. Inserted marriage well through Elvis presence in such changed. If you go into like the renaissance, for example, marriage, chests were thing, these chests held all of the bright future wife goods right up there with huge tracts of land, which she would then take to her groom's house. It was sort of an early form of a hope chest. So, you know, unmarried women would collect things that they would need to embark on married, life linens, things like that. This is kept them in there. They did on us until they were married. I just have a chest of linens towels and sheets. And Dell's heats. And things like that. Guess nothing more I could possibly need other than just clean sheets. And tells I have always found that entire thing to be very weird in very strange. But the thing is, is that as a for a hope chest, you really talk to your mom, my mom, they would know what that is. That was a thing when our parents were growing up that this is what they did like they had hoped Chester. This is my mom, I who is her cedar chess thing that she still has that would've exactly been it. That cedar chests would have been that what they used for that. My mom had one as while it got destroyed in a flood, however many, many years ago, it was just smell weird. But yes that is what the dress was in and things like that. That's yeah. That was essentially, what that was women had these chests. So we moved from there from there, too. Eleven key basket. Ooh. This sounds like it just got a little kinky, everybody drafts their keys in a bowl, and then you just take a key later on. No, this is not wife. Swap. Oh. This is an American thing. This was solely. An American thing American brides would be gifted other key basket, which would give her keys to unlock doors, chests, cupboards, and things in her new home. You can get into your house. Exactly it symbolized her new status. This is what that did this symbolize status lady of the house. Cube

"How? So yes, but don't feel bad just inviting people to the party, a part of that, and enjoying them or having them come in. Say Hello to you and enjoy your presence. Joy the festivities. Yes, they can enjoy your party. They can enjoy that part of it, but they don't necessarily need to be there for the entire thing. They may not be that close. This is a great thing for co workers. Those are the people that are like the satellites. So it's not like the moon. The moon's, always there moons kinds of moon and the earth rock-hard satellites come and go. Their orbits can sometimes be ellipses therefore, they're further away, sometimes closer. Sometimes they crashed into space debris in fall, plummeting to the earth, or Corinne, outerspace. Never to be heard or seen from again. I think that happens quite a bit. So make sure you don't invite satellites to heading. It's okay to have them come to the reception. Yes. By losing it here. Yeah. It's really stop. This is not working as far as like an allergy, you started out strongly, super strong super super strong on the money on. And then it kind of doubts. Yeah. Drifted off. You tried to keep it going. I think you forgot what started on those minisatellites that the bigger satellites spit out in space. Those are the Kwaidan ses, you don't want them there at all. Maybe you do. I don't think I've learned anything from anything. You said haven't no. Sorry. At this point, I'm going to have space analogies, and cut it out jokes the entire time. We're referring to, I guess, list, different strokes for different folks for not going to get very far on this. Why do I have the bad feeling that it's just going to be a Honey invite whoever you want? I got a list of like seven dudes I met down at the biker bar last weekend at the bike to a biker bar. Was there for this today, part go to bed? And yep. Sure. Yeah.

"Hey, this is Brian Dunkel of the unadulterated BS podcast. And it's time to listen to our show. Wait. I can't say that. No. So this is what podcast is this, that I'm doing this ad on the wedding. So you're telling me I can't say. None of that. I can't say any of that on this show. Well. Sorry. Anyway. Listen to the NFL three two Bs podcast on the dark ravine dot com and you can hear exactly what I said. I'm assuming it was all bleeped out, probably. Hello, everybody. That's not how you start. Cream. Cotin and the Hugh Grant stub Q watch your mom elite in your dreams Iraq, our on brew. Golsen two weekends dancing Jammie pants deal. The. Of our listeners. I'm Brian, I am out and getting married. Three hundred eighty one days. Perfect. Steve. Intern. I know it's true. The clouds with you. With you think you're. Perfect for me tonight. We're going to touch on the topic of guess guess lists. This is ready to start striking people down. Tell them that they don't get to come to my wedding. You do except for I don't be rude, but we're going to start taking out like. A donation box pretty soon. Donations are fun before we get really started into guest list. That's what it is guest list. Let's talk about a little bit about this podcast as you said, we're getting married in how many days now, three hundred eighty one so not enough times dwindling quickly. But anyway, this podcast is about us giving. You are lessons learned in a few tips on the various aspects of planning, our wedding, and hopefully, it can be helpful for you and your wedding. Problem. Listened to the fuck. Swarmed by mosquitoes. And as a result, smell was itching furiously very. So yes, lists knows don't invite the mosquito. Yes. Keep them -squitoes far far away. Do invite the bug control specialists. Yes. No to the mosquitos such candles. And I mean the bad way and not good say, not Zeka. All right. Enlighten us a little bit on the guest list supposed to do. And we're like what we're more than a year out still. And I'm thinking about who gets to come. Well, yes, because, well, you have to. Because who gets to calm is going to determine how much food you need much food, UNITA's is going to determine how much you're going to spend on food, so on and so forth. The size of the room already, as well as we talked about location on the most recent addition to the spot guest right on that. Right. Which will? No, you're right. Okay. The other thing is, is that people like to assume that, who you should invite. So you've got. You and your fiancee, wanting to come up with people that you want to have their both of you are going to have people that are close to you that you want invited. Then you have to explain that out even further, and you have your parents on both sides, and in some situations, you may have a split family where there's now suddenly. Four sides set of people, then you have the people who just think that they should be invited. Those are always fun people. So it can get very out of hand very quickly. So I found some articles tips for simplifying in helping you with your guest list. Yes. Invite only people whose names begin with litters eight through the no not quite that way. So. You wanted to come up with the main list or a masterless this master list should include everyone. You think you should invite? Okay. So you're talking about family

We also have plans interview guests things like deejays cake bakers all these different things until we get up to the point of our actual wedding at which point, we've already decided we're gonna find some time to set aside and do a final podcast after we've actually been married. Yes. If we decided what the entire like, like, how that's gonna work. Nope. Nope.
