"Kind of community perspective? And getting in at the very beginning of something. Yeah, well, you know, I'll give you a couple different perspectives. My own personal one and one that I feel like a lot of people have, which isn't necessarily one and the same. Okay, okay, let's hear it. All right, well keep in mind, I'm coming at this having been in tech startups my entire career. Most successful tech startups that are out there, they didn't happen overnight, right? Like they're built up and they continued to build and build and grow and grow, and they might have generated some buzz early on, but I don't know. Think of SnapChat, right? It didn't become what it is today overnight. They didn't just have a launch and then were immediately one of the most successful social apps just instantly. You know, I got in early on cameo pass, not expecting the floor price to just skyrocket instantly. And honestly, floor price, I mean, that seems to be a metric that a lot of people track as, you know, the value of an NFT, it isn't that important to me. I mean, all this stuff, the benefits that come along with the NFT, that was kind of what was most intriguing to me. Okay, what do you mean that? Well, okay, I paid what amounted to probably, I don't know. 800 bucks or so. To get in on that cameo pass NFT. Today, my specific cameo pass is still valued at right around that $800 Mark. It didn't skyrocket. In some cases, some cameo passes actually went below the original mint price. And nobody wants that, right? You don't want to see the value of something you own to be less today than what it was before. But they've already had several giveaways. They distributed merch early on to early pass holders. Those things have some value, but attending this cameo pass party? Look, I know not everybody could take the time off work and fly to LA to attend something like this, but getting into a private party where you get to meet celebrities, you take in a poolside comedy show with a guest list that was probably capped at a hundred people. What would people pay to get in on something like that? Yeah, it's really hard to say, people do all kinds of stuff just to get into those parties. Now you've got like a direct line. Yeah, and you know, look, it was this cool experience as cool life experience. I got to enjoy it. Even if they never did anything else with the pass ever again, I sort of feel like I got the value out of my past. So if I sold it right now for the same price that I bought it for, I'm actually profiting. I'm not getting my money back. I'm actually profiting because I already got that experience. Yeah, I like that. It's a great way to look at it. But not everyone is going to have that, right? There is a flip side, right? For sure. For sure. And I think that's one of the things I noticed about a lot of people getting into NFTs right now. You heard this a bit with one of the community members I recorded with at the party. Some people, they get amped up by the potential of a project and they need to get in early, even if it means not doing any research. I mean, we heard the one person say, bye now, research later. But if the value of the floor price doesn't go up immediately, then they're up in arms. They're asking, when's the next piece of utility coming? You know, what about the floor price? Is this a rug pull? I mean, the level of patience in the NFT world, it is not something that is as high as other places, right? And I'll go back to that conversation I had with Oliver maroney, the GM of web three for cameo pass. He and the team, they noticed when people aren't quite patient. It was very widely reported and tech crunch and Yahoo and a bunch of other places that all the money that we raised from this are just basically just going straight back into the stuff that we work on with cameo pass. We're approaching this like a business just like any other company would. But I think the unique part is that money is going to be in this space in cameo pass for the long haul. It's just we can't we can't deliver everything at once. And so it's something that I've noticed over time with this space that the patients has just gotten to be very small. And there are a lot of people who are very impatient. And unfortunately, we can't I can't promise everything and give you everything that you want with every project. And I'm not simply saying that because I don't want to deliver. I do. It's like every time I see any comment, it hurts me. It's hard for us to deal with. In essence the team, it's like hard. I'm not trying to complain or vent or anything, but I think people should definitely understand where we're coming from here. We're trying our very best to do what we think is right for the community and for the project long term. And in order to do that, you've got to be patient. Oliver says as an NFT passholder, you've got to be patient. Then I hear him for sure. I can also empathize with NFT holders who, well, they've been burned in the past. They don't know if this project is ever going to complete its road map, right? They've also seen frosties or baller ape club or evolved apes, projects that all generated millions of dollars at the mint, and then the developers just walked away. Yeah. I definitely feel for those people too. I mean, there are a lot of projects out there like that. I mean, look, for all of those board ape and cool cat NFT Bros and gals that I met at the cameo past party, they told me, yeah, I got in in those projects early, but I also got in on a lot of other projects certainly and most of those other projects failed. You know, in some failed because it's just the nature of a startup project, right? Execution just wasn't there. Some might have been many versions of those rug pulls before, right? It's really a mix. But Oliver does bring up a good point about patience, right? This web three space. A lot of people don't seem to have any patience, but the great projects out there, even if it seems like they're overnight successes, they did come with a lot of work put in. Yeah, reminded me of one more comment that Oliver made here. We are a web two company that's raised a lot and has done a lot in the space. And it didn't grow overnight either. And I think, you know, even our cofounder, I think, chimed in last weekend on the Discord and was like, hey, just FYI, like cameo wasn't built overnight. We weren't a $1 billion company overnight. It took us four years to get to this point. I can't stress enough, we're talking three, four, 5 projects at a time here. So our goal is to always under promise and over deliver. And if we can do that, we know that we've done a good job. I understand there's a lot of people that want to create hype, but what I don't want to do is artificially inflate floor price or artificially inflate anything to where people feel like they need to fomo into something right away or feel the need, I guess, to have to buy. And I think the interesting part about web three and NFTs right now that I haven't seen in the past is that more than ever, there are people getting into the space every day that are literally hearing the stories from people 6 months ago, where they said, hey, I bought a board 8 for a $300, and it went to $300,000. That doesn't happen, this is like, it's gambling, right? There's a sense of that right now. And I think a lot of people are in this because they have some conviction. Oh, it's the doodles artist that did this pass. So I buy this and it's just gonna go up. And people always told me, like, buy into people you believe in. And so every project is different in that way. So like all in all, your final take on cameo pass. Why, I can't tell you this is going to be the next board apes. Probably not, right? I mean, it's awesome as the party was, they had the party, and they're actually planning more. There's one coming up in Miami and sadly, I can not make that one, but the floor price really isn't jumped or anything, so might the value increase in this project. It could,.

"Scan your NFT to get it? You know what? Nobody asked to see my NFT. I just was on a list, you know? That's how Beverly Hills parties work, Michael, right? You got to be on the list. Fair, fair. Okay, so it's a long party from the morning tonight. And you were there for the entire thing? Well, I couldn't be there for the early morning part. I wish I could have been. I had a work thing for product collective. An important video chat that I had to be on in the morning, but I got there by lunchtime. And I was there for all day after that. I mean, from lunchtime to 10 o'clock at night. But I have to admit the fomo is pretty strong for me because while I was dealing with work stuff that morning, I was seeing cameo pass post pictures of different celebrities that were already there. Celebrities like Danny Trejo. You might remember him from movies like machete or from dusk till dawn. Danny actually now owns a few businesses. One of them being trejo's coffee and donuts and trejo did bring his coffee and donuts to the cameo mansion for everybody to enjoy during breakfast time. And I saw pictures of people like Jon Lovitz, who was there with his dog, I don't know, maybe he lives in the neighborhood or something and just sort of stumbled in. I saw Oscar Nunez. We all know Oscar from the office, of course. And they were enjoying those coffee and donuts and I'll admit it. Maybe what did it get over to the cameo mansion right away? But you got there before too long, right? Yeah, again, it was around lunchtime. And honestly, it was a bit surreal, because as soon as I arrived, it's not like there were hundreds of people there. There might be like 20 people. But already, I mean, I could see some of those 20 people being celebrities. Standing at the bar, I saw shooter mcgavin, a shooter McGowan? Yeah, actually, actor Christopher Donald, but you might know shooter mcgavin from happy Gilmore. The villainous golfer that happy Gilmore is like going up against so he was there and actually, if you want to get a cameo from him, he's on cameo as shooter mcgavin, not even Christopher Donald, just as shooter mcgavin. So, little interesting tidbit there. I saw NFL pro bowler cam Jordan. He was actually on the mic getting interviewed when I arrived. Throughout the day, some of these celebrities or web three influencers, they'd actually take the mic for an interview or a panel. So there's a little bit of programming involved. And so yeah, just as I was arriving, Kim Jordan was taking questions from the audience. Okay, that's very cool. You hear of celebrity parties and you just assume there's like a thousand people around them, right? But here, it sounds like you might actually get a chance to talk to them. Yeah, yeah, I mean, that was definitely the case. I mean, throughout the entire day, you know, some people were coming and going, but at any given time, maybe there's a few dozen people, maybe a hundred at the very most. At least by my estimation. And that was by design. I mean, cameo said that they wanted to keep the guest list pretty tight. You know, this was a mansion in Beverly Hills, but it's not like the backyard was that huge. I mean, this is still Los Angeles, right? Like the yards aren't that big. It was very nice yard though. It's not just sand able. For sure, for sure. And yes, Michael finally, I did end up getting my handshake with Leslie David baker, Stanley from the office. He was walking by and I did what probably any office fan would do. I just sort of blurted out. Stanley, you know, I was really planning on doing that. I wasn't planning on seeing Stanley. So I blurted that out. He turned to me and let out one of the biggest smiles that I swear. I never saw any episode of The Office. It's usually a scowl from Stanley. Anyway, he extended his hand and I shook it. And you record an interview with Stan Lee for all of us to hear, right? I'm sorry, Michael, I didn't. I didn't have my microphone right there when Stanley walked by. And honestly, meeting the celebrities that I did get to meet. It was pretty cool. But the reason I brought the microphone was to talk to the community of cameo pass, right? And I did get to do that. I figured it'd be cool to hear some voices from people that made their way to LA to the party like me. So you could get a feel for the type of people that are actually a part of the cameo pass community. Okay, well let's hear who you did get to talk to. All right, well, let's see, here's one community member. He wanted to stay nameless, but he stood out to me because he was a super young guy. I mean, I don't know how old he was. He looked like he was like 21 years old. And he said that he traded NFTs as his full-time job. In the past, I was doing a lot of quick clips like every project that we get out within within a week. After clone X, I started holding a few more projects that I thought was more promising, like the team looks like they are focused on building the community, the brand, and they're more mission driven instead of being here to just be like a cash grab. There are some, there are some hints that you can read from how the team interacts with the community. And I think there's through experience. I can kind of see it sometimes when a team is more genuine instead of being here just to prop it off NFTs. It's like when you see how they respond to incidents, you can see like if they're here to genuinely make sure the community is satisfied or if they're here to kind of make sure their bags are protected. And hey, this is an important distinction here, right? I mean, there are a lot of rug pulls out there these days. Projects when they launch, the money goes to the project's founders, and then that's it. Nothing ever happens, the rug was pulled. And how did this person get involved in cameo pass? Well, let's go back. I actually don't know too much. About it, but then there's a friend that. I got to know through NFTs and she is also someone who inspired me to kind of invest into projects instead of being more of like a flipper and do more research. She has a really good eye for projects like this. She does a lot of research. And I realized, I mean, I basically just trusted her intuition. The problem with me is like this there's so many projects going on. It's hard to really dive into every single project. So I bought a cameo past just based off her. Yeah, based off her recommendation. And it's like, I'm not putting in too much that I'm too worried about it, so it's just like also, I'm also buying in before I do the research because there were a few times where she told me about a project. I'm like, I'll put it on my list of things to look into. And then the next few days is like, it just skyrockets. Now, whatever you tell me, I'm gonna take it as financial advice. I wanna buy in first and do my research later. Buy first and do research later. Okay, this is probably the time where I should say none of this is financial advice. I don't know that that should be anybody's strategy. Probably not, okay. So who's next? Okay, well, as you can imagine, there were some NFT entrepreneurs there, people that had startups that were in the web three space, like the founder of a company called P NFT. So this is the project where you'll be able to put your own assistant specific location. So imagine right now this cameo apart and imagine putting in NFT at this location. So the only person to be able to buy it is by being in this location. So here is how it looks like for now. So basically there will be like a map and you can just walk towards a hundred meter radius and be able to buy this energy. We're looking to launch in the month will be realistic. So good luck to P NFTs launch. It should be coming right up. It's almost been a month since the party. There was.

"Even more today, there's a lot to talk about. And I do promise, though, we're going to get to that handshake before too long. Like, right now, right away. But Mike, we haven't even run the intro yet. All right, well, let's do that. Let's roll that intro. Welcome to rocket ship FM, rocket ship FM is produced in partnership with product collective. We are your hosts, Michael sokka, and I'm Mike del sito. All right, well, let's see, where should we even begin here? Well, not to draw things out. You know, I don't want to. But if you're just joining us now, you should at least go back and listen to last week's episode. It's really part one of this two part series we're doing around cameo pass as part of our season 11 all about web three. But we can probably bring you up to speed if you really don't want to go back. Yeah, I mean the short of it is last week I filled everybody in on my second ever NFT that I owned cameo pass. It's a web three project from the web two tech company cameo, you know, the platform you could send a celebrity shout out to your friends and family. Anyway, they announced their NFT project cameo pass as a ticket to everything that they would end up doing in the web three world. There were 6000 NFTs that were introduced as a part of cameo pass, which were essentially 2000 copies of three different passes made by artists like Vinnie Hager, burnt toast and Luke mcgarry. Last week we heard from Oliver Moroni, the GM of web three four cameo, Oliver was really the catalyst for the project, but there was a larger team behind the project too. In fact, there were our handful of folks who are focused on cameo past full time now, including one of the original cofounders and the CTO of the company. Yeah, now we keep talking about utility because when somebody purchases an NFT, there's typically the art aspect to the NFT. And in some cases, there's utility. The art aspect of cameo pass is actually pretty cool. I mean, to the artists, our web three veterans, you know, as much as anybody can be a web three veteran, but Vinnie Hager and burnt toast. They're the artists behind NFT projects like letters and doodles. Today, if you want to own a letters NFT, you'd have to fork over two and a half eth. That's like $6000. Actually, maybe more like 7 or $8000 now. If you wanted to own a doodles NFT from burnt toast, well, you're going to have to spend over $46,000. So it's kind of cool for me to say that I have an NFT from artist burnt toast since he is the artist of my cameo pass. The other artist Luke mcgarry, well, we heard from him in our last episode, and he's kind of new to that web three world, but is an incredibly accomplished illustrator and cartoonist himself. And actually does have his own NFT project coming up later this spring called petabytes. Yes, and the cameo pass community will actually get special access to that project. It's a project of 2022 unique one of one NFTs and only cameo pass holders will get early access. In fact, early access to various NFT projects, it's one of the benefits or utilities that pass holders get. In this case, cameo pass will actually cover the cost of the mint. So in a way, it's kind of like a free NFT for a cameo pass holders. In other cases, there's white list or allow list access for other projects, giveaways, drawings. And these are common benefits for a lot of NFT projects, actually, not just cameo pass. It might get random AirDrops or there might be reciprocal relationships with other NFT communities, but cameo pass also had a pretty interesting benefit that not all NFT projects are able to do right. In real life events. It's not to say that no other NFT projects have IRL events to see what I did there. But what makes cameo past unique is its network of celebrities. There are 50,000 plus celebrities and influencers that are part of the cameo network. So when cameos said that one of its major benefits would be in real life events. Well, it peaked your interest Mike didn't it. Yeah, it did. It did. And so when they announced their first ever cameo past party, at a mansion that they own in Beverly Hills, which would take place the same time as NFT LA, which is a big deal for the web three community in Los Angeles. Well, I thought it might be worth me packing up a microphone and flying out to LA to take it all in. I figured I'd try to, I don't know, meet some of the celebrities, maybe interview some of the community members and answer that question that's kind of been floating around in my head ever since I heard about the fact that NFT parties are a thing, which is, what do people actually do at NFT party? Well, what do people actually do at NFT parties? I think you can actually answer that for us. Well, all right, now the cameo pass party, it took place on a Tuesday in early April. I actually got it in on a Monday. I flew in on Monday so that I could wake up and kind of be fresh going into it. But actually as soon as I arrived, I got a DM from somebody who had seen me in the cameo pass Discord mentioning that I'd be attending the party and said, hey, you should actually come to the cameo mansion tonight. There's another party going on. It's not a cameo party, but it's being put on by artists of the NFT community and I could get you on the list and exclusive private party before the exclusive private party. I guess so, you know, I don't know. I don't go to exclusive parties very much. I thought, hey, maybe this is a normal thing, right? There's always the party before the party. I don't know. But the only catch would be that he said, I couldn't bring my mic to this party. That's kind of a more low key kind of thing. But I had nothing going on that night in LA as by myself, and I don't know, I just sort of looked at this as a bonus as far as I was concerned. So I didn't see it as too much of a drawback. So you went, I went. And it was definitely interesting. Tell us more about that. All right, well, first of all, I basically felt like, all right, how do I put this? I kind of felt like I was crashing some billionaires college aged children's house party. I mean, the cameo mansion, it is this amazing house in this residential neighborhood in Beverly Hills. If you're driving by, you would not think, oh yeah, cameo owns that. House, it just looks like, I don't know, some rich person owns that house, right? And it's what you'd expect. I mean, you walk in and it's very ornate, these crazy tall ceilings, you see marble. It's as beautiful house, living room leads right into this Gourmet kitchen that has this giant long bar with plenty of seating and then sliding glass doors that open up into the backyard where there's this amazing pool and it's surrounded by cabanas and pool beds, but there's also a giant cameo sign at the end. And then a DJ booth, on the other end, and there were lots and lots of very young people having a great time and who were those people tell us more about them. Okay, so I came to learn that technically it was a party thrown by one of the artists that cameo lent their house to. Or maybe they rented it out. I don't know. I don't know how that process worked. Nobody filled me in on that. All I know is what I heard is that this was Vinny Hager's party. I don't even know if that's true. That's just what I heard and I somehow got into it. And Vinny Hager, of course, he's the artist behind the project letters. And I did see Vinny there. I saw him sporting one of his one of his letters style t-shirts. And I also saw other NFT folks there as well. I saw the artist from.

"Thought it'd be interesting to get the perspective of a side that we sometimes don't often get to hear from yet they're right in the center of the NFTs. Okay. Do you know who I'm talking about? No, who's that? The artists, the artists, right? So with cameo pass I mean art is one big piece of it. And as I mentioned before, there's three artists who are involved with cameo passes inaugural NFT project. There's burnt toast of doodles fame, Vinnie Hager, the artist behind the project letters, and then there's one other artist whose new to the web three world, but he is a very accomplished illustrator and cartoonist, originally from Manchester, a let him introduce himself here. Hi, I'm Luke mcgarry. At lukey mcgarry on all social media. And I'm a cartoonist and illustrator, and I did the good day passed by cameo pass. So the little dog taking a snooze by a window. That's me. Luke mccarry, he's not the artist behind the past that you have, is it Mike? No, he's not, but Lucas awesome. Here's more about Luke. I've been a cartoonist forever. Because my dad's a cartoonist and all of his friends Rica and so as a kid I just assumed that's what adults did. Just grow up and draw cartoons all day. So I've been doing it since I could hold a pencil. But initially, I'm in a band with my brother called pop noi. And that was plan a initially. So we started this band while we were in high school. But then I started working for local music magazines and kind of concert promoters and stuff doing posters and illustrated articles and interviews and stuff. On the assumption that that would get our banned more coverage and more shows. It's like, oh, I'm in with these people. And then the other bands I played with would then ask me to do posters for them or album covers and stuff and animated music videos and it sort of grew from there. So the art side of stuff kind of quickly took over because there was so much demand for that. I started working with different festivals. They got bar out by golden voice. You do Coachella and stuff. Grew up from there. And then I was working with like bigger names and started working with Jack Black and tenacious D on doing the poster for their music and comedy festival. And that led to a load of work, like artwork in the comedy world, to magazine stuff for Playboy and The New Yorker and stuff. And animated music videos for Universal Music. So he may not have had a ton of web three experience. But what an amazing career. For an artist and illustrator? Yeah, I mean, from what I learned basically, if you were a band in LA, that was worth something. And you needed amazing art for your tour poster. You go to Luke. I mean, he was just so well known for that. And of course, a whole lot more when it came to his art. Yeah, and actually he had a tie to cameo, didn't he? Yeah. So Luke was on cameo as a part of its talent community. But instead of doing video shout outs, he would literally draw anything that you asked for. You'd get a 32nd video illustration of whatever you wanted. I mean, if you go to his cameo profile now, you'll see lots of portraits of people, pets, super cool gift idea if you think of it. If you just needed to get somebody a unique gift of something, just putting that out there, you know? That's really cool. Yeah, and afterwards, you could take a photo and put it on the blockchain, and you have a one of one NFT from Luke, right? That's actually not a bad idea. But anyway, back to Luke and cameo. So Luke was popular on the platform as far as artists were concerned. And one day. They got bent toast and Vinny Hager in, and they're like, you know, we should probably get an artist that's using our platform. And all of the dude that's running the NFT sided stuff that cameo just kind of dug through cameo, like all the way to the bar I'm looking for an artist. And there I was with my weird little lightning fast caricatures of people. Artists are always self deprecating aren't they? Yeah. Lucas, right? He's this amazing artist. So if he's not going to be the one to tell you, I will. Anyway, that's how Luke got involved with cameo pass, being an artist on the platform. Cameo saw that and asked if he wanted to get involved with the project and Luke's thoughts on getting involved? I was interested right out of the gate, especially just because the whole thing sounded so cool. It was such a well thought out project. It wasn't like, you know, because I'm sure a load of artists in the space can relate where you get lots of pitches for stuff that's a bad idea and a bad deal. And it's like they just need an art monkey to do the art for it. It's like, oh, we'll trick this guy into doing it, you know? As I say, I've been a cartoonist outside of this space for so long that I've got a little bit of mouse to go. Well, that sounds like a bad deal, you know? What am I getting out of this? But the cameo like the team and everybody was so easy to work with and it was just such a cool idea. They were basically like theme is we've got three times a day morning noon and night and we're just letting the artist pick which one they want and then all of a sudden yeah Vinny's already got night and very toast is already got morning so you're stuck with afternoon. Nobody wanted enough, didn't even. So do something that represents afternoon for us but other than that there was like no input no nothing just total creative freedom. So I was like, yeah, I can do this and I think it's been the start of a beautiful relationship. The start of a beautiful relationship. It sounds so nice. Yes, and we're going to come right back to this. But first, Luke had one final thought to share putting the perspective of an artist out there who's getting involved in NFT projects. Okay, what's that? The artists of people too, where people just like you, that are interested in this stuff. You know, we're fans of artwork where we have dumb opinions, you know? There's kind of an expectation of artists to be business people in this space, you know? And I don't think that's necessary. I think artists aren't necessarily business people. So be nice to them. They're creatives. So yeah, it'd be nice. Hey, artists are people too. I think that's a good reminder for those who are out there who are just worried about price floor, asking, where are the devs? There's a day that goes by without some sort of wild announcement and people get restless. Do you remember artists are involved in this project and they see these comments? They're not business people. They're artists who just created this cool art and they want to see people enjoying the art. That sometimes does get lost, doesn't it, right? NFTs are obviously a lot more. But at the core, there is still an artist behind the project who just wants to see their art appreciate it. So even if you do want to see the utility of a project and you want to see that price floor go up, remember artists like Luke too, okay? Now, after I recorded with Luke, Luke and cameo made a pretty exciting announcement. You remember him saying it was the start of a beautiful relationship. Well, Luke and cameo are continuing that relationship. Luke will soon be introducing his very first solo PFP project. Project is called petabytes, and it will be 2022 hand drawn one of one NFTs, and he's launching the collection later this spring. It's set to have a .14 eth price at mint. But if you're a cameo pass holder, you actually get access to this project and cameo pass will actually cover the mint cost. There's actually this tiered allow list. So holders of all three cameo passes as a set get first priority, but then the rest of the cameo pass holders get priority over the general public. And again, cameo pass is actually covering the full cost. That's a great benefit. Yeah. And I'm pretty sure that cameo pass holders actually are the only ones that get this early access. So yeah, I was definitely excited to hear about this, especially after getting to spend time with.

"So Michael, when I say utility in the context of NFTs, what comes to mind? Well, that's actually been a hot topic lately. Certain NFT projects started off as really just art projects, right? They showcased the art and digital form, a lot of people to buy it. Instead of a canvas though, the medium was an NFT. Yeah, that's true. Art with a smart contract built in that actually proves you own that piece of art, but I asked about utility. Yeah, okay, you're right. You're right. And that's a hot topic because so many NFT projects these days, the art is there, but people want to know what else they actually get from the art. Does it come with access to the artists, the ability to get in on future projects, any kind of IP rights? Can you resell it? Can you license your character? What does the NFT holder get beyond the ownership of this jpeg? So there's really all sorts of detail that come along with an NFT. We covered a lot of them actually in the last episode. Yeah, we did for sure. What if I told you that a recent NFT that I bought in on? A part of the utility was a handshake from Stanley from the office. Wait, like, an actual handshake. Does it come with one of his signature scowls? And eye rolls do? No, no, but it did come with a big smile. No, Stanley doesn't smile. Okay. Stanley doesn't smile. But the actor who portrays Stanley in the legendary television series The Office, Leslie David baker, well, he actually has a great smile. Well, I'm assuming that the NFT you're talking about must be that cameo pass. As that's what today's episode is all about, but a handless shave from Stanley, you gotta tell me more about this. All right, well, we're gonna get into it today right after we roll this intro. Welcome to rocket ship FM, rocket ship FM is produced in partnership with product collective. We are your hosts, Michael sokka, and I'm Mike belsito. Okay, Mike, today's episode is all about the cameo pass. A brand new web three NFT project from the web two company cameo. Yeah, you might be familiar with cameo. It's a platform that you could use to get celebrities and other influencers to send video messages to, well, pretty much anybody you want. Like, this one. What's up guys? It's three time NFL pro bowler Josh cribs. I just want to say congratulations to Tracy and fife. Welcoming your new baby boy, Bernie. No, I'm just kidding. Your new baby boy Owen. I was just kidding, guys. That's a joke, 'cause you guys are brown's fans and Mike said your boy Mike said he was suggesting that you name your baby boy, Bernie. I think Bernie kosar, and look, I just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart bag for continuing to support the browns and being huge browns fans. Listen, it's because of our browns fans and fans. Wait, did you really send this cameo to somebody? Of course I did. My buddy fife and his wife Tracy, they had their first born child, a baby boy Owen and I was so pumped for them. And I thought, well, it'd be pretty cool if uncle Mike could get Cleveland brown's legend Josh cribs to wish them well. And yeah, I might have suggested that they named their son Bernie after Bernie kosar, but they didn't listen to me. Well, I'm not surprised he did this and now what? An NFT of the cameo used? Not exactly, not exactly. But just about two months ago, cameo did launch cameo pass their new web three project. And that's what we're going to be digging into here. Okay, so how did you find out about cameo past to begin with? All right, well, I've had my eye out to get involved with a new NFT project. I wanted to get in on the beginning and we heard an episode one and two. I already had my first official NFT from the tilt, but I wanted to keep things going. I wanted to learn even more. I felt like the best way for me to do that was to get in on the very beginning to actually join during the mint of an NFT. Basically be a part of the community when the community itself was just being formed. Okay, so all the projects in the world, all these NFT projects. And you went with cameo pass? Well, back in February, you know, I started reading about it. There were outlets like TechCrunch and fast company. They were reporting on the launch of cameo pass. And in this fast company article by Nicola port, she reports, well, I'll just quote her here. The celebrity video shout out platform cameo announced that it's getting into NFTs, starting on February 17th. Fans of the 50,000 athletes musicians and other influencers who populate the platform, they'll be able to mint a new cameo pass via open sea. The NFTs at a current cost of about $550 will give people exclusive access to cameo events, such as parties hosted at the company's Beverly Hills villa. Meet and greet, merch drops and celebrity q-and-as. It's interesting. I mean, the fact that they're getting publicity right out of the gate, it's a good sign, right? It means there's some interests and buzz. Yeah, and that's from mainstream press, too. I mean, so many times these NFT projects in the early days, they struggled to get even the more obscure blogs to post about them. But cameo was getting some big media players to give them the attention before it's meant. And they were getting people in the web three world to talk about the project too. Like for instance, the YouTube channel NFT verse. In early February, I saw a video there talking about cameo pass as one of the hyped collections that was soon to be launching. Here's NFT verse with its take on cameo pass here. The next NFT collection we're going to be talking about here is coming from cameo, right? And cameo as many of you know is this like social media network where celebrities and prominent figures can send DMs or send personalized messages to fans, right? It's like a way of interacting with your fan base and your audience in a much more intimate way. And the company has now decided that they will be releasing an NFT collection surrounding this overall concept to help better connect fans and creators and celebrities with one another. That gives some of my final thoughts on what I think about the cameo pass and the NFT collection that cameo is creating here. It gives me a lot of the same sense of what I think be Friends is to GaryVee. If you're not familiar with what V friend is, it's an NFT collection that was developed and created by GaryVee, one of the most prominent influencers and entrepreneurs across the entire world has an incredible reach and is an extremely well respected and well-known within the NFT community. Well, GaryVee's collection V Friends has done really well as connecting the people who have purchased those NFTs with himself personally. And I think that's what cameo is trying to do with their past here by connecting fans and just regular people with creators, celebrities as well as access to certain events that will be created by them. So for me personally, I would say this is under the radar of a lot of people right now. And I am pretty excited for this NFT collection. I think there is a good possibility that there could be a lot of utility for these types of NFTs. And like we have seen with B Friends, which doesn't have the greatest art of all time, but it does have a tremendous amount of utility and great level of access to Gary V himself. So if we're able to get some of that access or a certain level of that access, equivalent to the level of access to what V Friends offers, I think these will be pretty interesting. Okay, they make the comparison there to V Friends by Gary Vaynerchuk. And those are some pretty big shoes to fill. Yeah, and look, I didn't take that to mean that cameo pass would definitely become as hot as V Friends is. I mean, I don't think it's fair to assume that, but the utility part of it. I mean, there are some similarities, right? Okay, so back to the utility. What did you mean there? Well, the Friends, right? You weren't buying them for the art. I mean, no offense to GaryVee, but the art is not that great. I mean, it looks sort of like my 9 year old son drew the pictures. But it's totally okay, 'cause V Friends was more about the benefits that came beyond the art. By that I mean access to vcon, Gary V's mega event that's sort of like Coachella for entrepreneurs and web three enthusiasts. It came with access to Gary V like literally access to them. Some of the NFTs they actually get you personal video calls or even lunch with GaryVee. And the take care is that the utility that comes.

"The correct answer is that a Ben mankiewicz cameo is under $200. Yeah. At a flat one 50. You know, I wouldn't pay for that. Absolutely. All right, Glenn, are you ready? Sony under so many, yes, yes. I know that you love a character actor. You love a great character actor. You love an indelible and unforgettable character out there. So your third cameo is Jackie Hoffman. Okay. Tremendous character actress. Tremendous. Wonderful and everything. Been and everything. And amazingly enough, we'll do a cameo. Now, you know, the very often the character actors are not appreciated to the same degree that they should be. They do not necessarily have the pull of their hyper a list Friends. So, the question is, is Jackie Hoffman, available on cameo for over or under $100. Okay, check out one of his great and good. Jackie Hoffman, not a household name, but she's a person that you know of the face, you know, the voice, you know, the mannerisms, you know, everything about her. I'm going to say over, but not by much. All right, the correct answer is that Jackie Hoffman can be had for the, in my opinion, incredible bargain price of 30 bucks. $30. 30 bucks. What I'm saying is, run, don't walk to get your jacket Hoffman cameo. Because the demand on our time is going to go up. This is cameo insider trading. That's true. That's true. All right, Stephen, are you ready for your third cameo? I am. All right, we're gonna play a little bit tape for you. Greetings, cameo curious, Hilton Brown here. You may recognize me from various food centric media endeavors that I've undertaken say it's your mother in law's birthday, right? And you really hate the way she cooks pork chops. If you invite me to the party, not only can I wish her a happy birthday on your behalf, I can throw in a few pork leaf chips. Pork leaf tips. It sounds like it gives good cameo. He's trying to drive some actual value. Alton Brown is a TV host known for shows like good eats and cutthroat kitchen. If you're not familiar with him, so Steven Thompson, I put the question to you, is the price of an Alton Brown cameo over or under $250..

"Those people that are special to you. Beautiful melodies. You may know Kenny G is the king of smooth jazz. Now you know ayesha popular and beloved Kenny G is. So the question is, is he over or under $450? Okay, $450. That's a lot. Of money in my opinion for this. But ready willing and able, though, I don't know if you heard that. That's true. You get a musical performance that is exclusive to you. I haven't seen the Kenny G documentary, but that Kenny G we just heard is the Kenny G that exists in my mind. Oh yeah, it just sounds. Perfect congruence with the Kenny G that you think Kenny G would be. Eager to please eager beaver. I'm gonna go, I'm gonna go for over. The answer is that Kenny G is under $450 available for only $350. That's still two. It's a steal. That is less than Brett Favre. And there are a whole lot of people who would take the position that they'd rather have Kenny G cameo than a Brett Favre came out. Okay. All right. So Glenn, we are going to you. We are going to an epic star, very special to me. And connected in an interesting way to all of us as she is the president of our union, the great Fran Drescher. Known for or under, hold your breath. $800. Wow. Well, it's going to be crazy entertaining. She's not going to phone it in. Heavy hangs the weight on those shoulder pads. I think I'm going to risk it. I'm going to say it's over. The answer is that it is under, but it is not very much under. It is $750 to get a cameo from one Fran Drescher. I'll take it. Now I know what I'm getting you for your birthday. Okay. Steven, your second cameo comes from the shared history of you and me as reality show. Fans. Boston rob Mariano. Oh, okay. Known for having been on survivor 4000 times and the amazing race $3000. Not really. But you know what I'm saying? Is a Boston rob cameo over or under 250 dollars. One of the icons of survivor, I think it's safe to say. I will briefly filibuster millionaire style to say that my partner has a coworker who bought a Boston rob cameo. I don't know for how much. So all I have to go on is I have been told that Boston rob was quote unquote worth every penny. I'm gonna say over. The correct answer is that Boston rob is under $250 at a solid one 99. Wow. Everybody got their first one right everybody missed their second one. Everybody is still tied one to one. To one. Guys, we haven't had a lot of overs yet. We've had a lot of unders, but not a lot of ovaries, so just keep that in mind. Factor that in. It's there. It's percolating in the back of my brain. It feels like we all outsmarted ourselves in round two. Yes, I think that's exactly what happened. This is all very on brand for all three of us. Look, I thought Kenny G was worth hundreds and hundreds of hundreds of hundreds of factors. Remember, this is not about work, man. I know. This is like, what is this celebrity strategy? In the same way that you are all trying to figure out, what is the quizmaster strategy? That's true. Ayesha, your third cameo calls upon your love of film history. Okay. Ernst lubitsch. No, I'm sorry. They found him. It just costs extra when you're digging from the grave. It's exactly..

"Out there and make that paper as the kids say. So I'm going to say shangela is top tier if we were to tear this, I would put her on the top tier, but I still say she is savvy enough to make her prices competitive I say under $200. All right, the correct answer is that a shangela cameo is under $200 at one 50. One 50, very smart price point. Bless you. Unless you're a hallelujah. I think this is as good a time as any. And this is something we talked about a little bit before we taped to acknowledge that you can either kind of do your cameos like a volume business, you know, available to lots of people or you can decide that you're going to charge a lot more money. It has to be a really special occasion, maybe you'll put a little more effort into it because people do leave reviews of cameos. So if you don't put a lot of oomph into it, people might leave you a bad review. Steven, you will not be surprised to hear, I don't think that your first cameo is Brett Favre. You may know him as the longtime quarterback of your favorite team, the Green Bay Packers. And the short time quarterback of my least favorite team, the Minnesota Vikings. Yes, thank you. So the question to you is, is a Brett Favre cameo over or under $300. Oh, wow. For one thing, are people bidding on the Brett Favre from football or the Brett Favre from there's something about Mary. Oh God. That costs extra. Okay, so one of the things with sports figures is sports figures, especially retired sports figures, are deriving a lot of their revenue from the autograph circuit. The sports memorabilia convention circuit. And those price points can be pretty high, especially when you're talking about a Hall of Famer, like a household name like Brett Favre. I'm gonna say over and I'm gonna add not for an extra point. I'm not trying to game the system. I'm gonna say significantly over. All right, you know, it was wonderful because our producers pointed out that Brett Favre is adorably only ever about a third of his piece of camera. He's always sort of like in the samples that they have posted on cameo. There's a little bit of that mom you're muted kind of thing. But at any rate, if you do get the Brett Favre cameo, it is over $300. Wow. He's $400. So it is not. Wildly over. I expected something more in the 5 to 7 range. All right, fair enough, fair enough. So you all got your first question, right? It is one to one to one as we go to round two. Ayesha, here's your second cameo. Kenny G here and I'm really excited that cameo is connecting us like this. This is really cool. I am ready willing and able to send out beautiful messages for you and also beautiful melodies for you to.

"Gonna suck, Kalinda. And Stephen Thompson, hi, Stephen. Hi Linda, so glad to be here. So we have wanted to talk about cameos for a long time. We are fascinated by them. We are confused by them. They run the gamut from the sublime to the ridiculous. If you're not familiar with cameo, it's a service where you pay a celebrity, whether it's an extremely famous person or a modestly famous person, some amount of money to record a personalized video message. Maybe you get them to wish somebody happy birthday, happy anniversary, just say hi, whatever. There are people whose cameos cost thousands of dollars and hundreds of dollars and tens of dollars. They're all over the place. A couple examples. Soccer player, Mia Hamm, her cameos cost a 125 bucks. Chuck Norris, 450 bucks. And bugsy Drake, a cast member from below deck med, $60. So as I said, they're all over the place. Two things to know, first of all, prices change on cameo all the time. Celebrities can adjust their prices whenever they want. So these are accurate as of when we taped on Thursday, the 31st of March. So take them with a grain of salt. Second, maybe more important. Being on cameo, I just want to say is a perfectly legit way for people to make money. It seems rather harmless to me. So this is not a dig at people who do cameos. I would happily do kids in a different version of my life. I would do cameos in this version of. Yeah. Exactly. So a lot of cameos are really creative, so we are not anti cameo, and we are not anti people who do cameos, and this is not a way to make fun of you. But we decided that the best way to engage with cameos was a quiz to see if we could figure out pricing. So we are doing an over under quiz. So we're going to three rounds. I'm going to give each of our panelists the name of a celebrity who is available to provide cameos on request, and I will give a price. And the panelists will guess whether the actual cost of a cameo from that celebrity is over or under the given number, okay? These over unders are not designed for it to be super close to the price. It's just designed to be confusing as to the price. So that is the structure. Wait, can it ever be exactly that place? No. Okay. They're not trick questions. None of them are, it's neither under nor over at least as of this taping. All right, are we ready to play cameo over or under? Never been readier. Can I say a few words at the top? Just to explain my incipient abysmal performance, yes, okay..

I'm asking Jeff Bezos if he would possibly put a couple little promos in there. So people with no miracle in the valley is on Amazon Prime. Miracle in the valley. Is that cool in the valley?

Okay, but the film that's coming out now is called the Mulligan. Obviously, it's about golf. That's why I wanted to ask you how many years have you been playing golf? Well, yeah.

Yeah you're speaking directly to san. You're calling them out sammy. I can't wait to see the next Doctor strange movie. That's going be wonderful. I'm sure but every woman in the movie is just like drop dead gorgeous. They're all these models. I mean movies are like that but i mean it's like the comic books overly so like there's no plain looking in the movie i know who the plain looking one. Her name is macy gray spackman. Okay all right anyway. So that's yeah cameo. She sings kind of Foisted upon you good get okay. Well it's cool that they're cameos are not always for the better. They can be like spiderman. Cameo has great responsibility along with great power so rich. What's your second. My second choice comes. From one of the more music cameo heavy movies perhaps of all time singles. Okay and we're talking about soundgarden which is who plays citizen dick or whatever no citizen. Dick was several of the guys from pearl jam. And i think that cameron possibly from soundgarden soundgarden actually plays as soundgarden A one of the club scenes. Yeah earlier in the film. I believe But what what where we get to the real cameo genius level of it a little bit later on. Is chris cornell showing up in this one scene. Where matt dillon has installed a new stereo speaker in his car and his blasting it in front of the the apartment complex where all the characters and they're just grooving to the music and everything sounds great and it gets a little bit too loud. Gets a little bit too loud suddenly the window shatter which leads me to believe that chris cornell lived in that apartment complex. I mean i don't know where else he would have possibly come from Which leads me to believe if chris cornell was in this apartment complex. And you're making a movie about this apartment complex. Why isn't there more. Chris cornell in this movement oh interesting i feel like we should have seen more of the lead singer of soundgarden. Playing the lead singer of soundgarden adds character in this movie. He was very funny. Is very brief roles. So you feel like you made a few leaps. They're like His appearance in a movie means cinematic. Appearance means he is actually residents in part of the movie or that. Yeah i mean we're all now you said when matt dillon's out there with the car personnel cornell can just shows up To help him out in out this new cool stereo that he's got. Yeah where else would he have come from if he's not like just hanging around the apartment calm doesn't seem a booking. It seems like something that he just was in seattle small enough that he was in the neighborhood or or lived in the apartment. He lives in the grunge district of right next to capitol aaron queen and the heroin needle. Okay that's a cool. That's fun cam. There's a lot of fun cameras in that. But yeah do they. Do they play carton. Yes and garden does play like i said. They played one of the earlier. One of the concerts does that i. That's funny i've never seen singles. It's i know it's one. It's one of those. It was like you like. I've seen reality bites way too many times. Don't do that but like singles. Those just never quite it never got a hot take kitty..

The mount rushmore of musicians or bands came as themselves in movies. Who who's thunk. Who stunk of this one. I stumped this wants. Thanks i love. This is my choice primarily because of one my first choice ultimately make but You know we've seen Cameos by lots of different. You know there's lots of people who like cameo as themselves but with a magician a musician coming in not magician a magician coming in and doing their own magic Musician coming. In and playing a song i think it serves a couple of different purposes. Sometimes it's very specific to the story. Sometimes it is maybe put out there by the label as a somebody visible. And i think that's always kind of interesting or citing aside aspect of it. Sometimes it's just like hey good. Music being played kind of like digest music. It's happening within the movie and you have to have banned there and might as well be a real band as opposed to like this. Think of a name like the The heaters or some you know just making up a name band that maybe they're actually a real band but they're playing as another band you know if a real bands playing Adds a sense of kind of reality as people on there. And you're like oh. This is interesting. And i thought well you know this. Is we all the music. We all know movies. Yeah it was in the in that thing you do.

Her character isn't lady gaga. It has to be as themselves okay. Yeah so if she was like in there as lady gaga if it was kind of like the lady gaga story. Yeah i said we're gaga. Wait till we're google got but like you know it could be. I don't know if this is on yours. But this is one that i thought of In wayne's world two whereas wayne's world which is the one where they see l. scoop. Bryant's the first one is no number two limited. The beginning of wayne's world two. They go see alice cooper performing and that would be like a camera. They are performing as himself. It leads into the characters you know wanting to go put on their big big show. It's like the the point of it. It's not a huge part. But he has enough part. Okay well I think are literally accept any take whatever already is really and they have to be actually playing music right. Yeah that's the thing is. It's not just like david bowie. Zoo lander when he walks in and he's like declaring the winner of the. You know the walk off okay..

"cameo" Discussed on GamesMyMomFound
"Should be unnecessary stuff and pushing. Having to push those bombs to blow rocks was and then you have areas where you offenses even just you know. If you're stupid and blew up your fences you lose your i. Didn't i thought about it. And that would be terrible and like dumbing side. You get part way third. And it's like oh wait you got to go back to the badlands and defend this other elemental shrine that pissed me off and i get the i form and it makes you go back to do that and i felt it was just make the game longer. Yeah totally which was two thousand five. So that makes sense that you have stuff like that. Because if i mean even watching reviews i interviews from two thousand five one of their combined. Well this game is too short. This game is short nor the game. That was this a little too line in my opinion but that was the thing in two thousand five hundred. A game was under a certain amount of hours. People complain about it. We're now it's not really a thing anymore. People expected long game is what it needs to be respect tango. Okay the game with long enough but it was a different time back then missing call duty to had like a fifteen hour campaign or something i don't remember to. I can't tell you. But i know it was the thing i watched old ex play videos. Which don't do that by the way. And they talk about that. And i as a guy who watch a lot of retro reviews. It's definitely a thing. I remember doing the same thing myself too so it also so that that was when the complaint you will have with this game. I disagree with completely. It also gave me a bit to learn when you're when you there's a part with ruin in the stupid mountain if you have to shoot up shoot ruined across the sooner you let go a right. You have to hit the other button to transform the chill away. You will not make it in time and i didn't. It took me a bit to figure that out. Because i think okay hit the wall. Then i'll hit the button and she would never transformed time or if you're like too close to the wall it kind of gives you the error. There's enough space to transform which is dumb. yeah it's puzzle to came enemies. The puzzles you disagree. You have the guys who the ice shield you have to use the studio so yeah flex is the form that you get here and it's basically just this like wad of water with tentacles. It's the worst form by our. Yes well it looks like something out of monsters. It's real dumb. There's another form but these enemies are the worst enemies in the game. Shields fuck us. Yeah the book even tells us like. There's it's vulnerable after a does this thing but it doesn't always let you grab the shield away from them and i always had trouble with guys. Yeah it was inconsistent enough for me. the theme of the see. I can see people saying it's too short because there really is no depth to it at all has also office is just do a thing goodwill place do a thing go to a place get new power. Yeah i was okay with that those depressingly. I mean it was. It wasn't didn't. I'm glad to game wasn't any longer than what it was. But it definitely wasn't too short. But i didn't have a link to me so i guess when it when it forced make when at four like boss fights to take way too long then right. That's but we know a cameo is now back. Then you know cameo had all his promise and all this edition and then it was releasing this formed so i i guess i can see like compared to everything else going on around then. Okay yeah this..
Democrats Blame Republicans for the Outcome of 'Defund the Police'
"So now the left. They're found policy, which they embraced and promote it. And celebrate it. You're going to blame it on Republicans. And this is the problem. They'll have help. From Democrat phony journalists like schmuck to Georgie Stephanopoulos and the rest of the, uh, the Congo, Lina falls and frauds go ahead. As you know, I didn't receive a single Republican vote. That funding has been used to keep cops on the beat. No, no, no, no, no, no. Just think about this. Minneapolis voted to defund the cops. Kamala Harris. What's going on about Reimagining Police Department. Remember that folks? On and off for months. AOC can't cut on and on and all of a sudden All of a sudden we're supposed to Jennifer. Oh, it's the Republicans. Why These cities have money for cops. They slashed and look at what the cameo did in New York. He cut like a billion dollars give her take from his police force. Out of $6 billion Doesn't matter him needing money. It's a matter him taking money out of their budget budget and putting it somewhere else. The Republicans have absolutely no say in what goes on in these cities zero and these blue Blue states zero Nothing. So here's the point. The Democrats are going to do nothing about crime except to go after gun dealers an innocent Americans, Nothing The Democrats take no responsibility for their policies, which have reached the point where American citizens are being slaughtered. And record numbers. They're not going to do

New York won't know the actual results for about three weeks when they're done counting the ballots you see. Have a very important election system there. It's got While there used to be a comic at the name of Rube Goldberg, and he would write and he would make these very complicated pictures and how things work and it was really quite Intriguing what he would draw cartoonist. I should say. Well, that's the election system they have in the state of New York. And so many of these Paradise is that people are trying to escape as fast as they possibly can. Called Blue State Democrats states. Eric Adams will likely win the Democrat primary. See even Even the Democrats. It looks like Some of them anyway. Having second thoughts. Wait a minute. Our school suck. Our streets are dangerous. The value of our property is through the toilet. Sure. Let me keep voting for leftist Democrats. Yeah, Yeah, so good. So the little light bulb went off now for them. It's about a five water, but nonetheless, it went off. Wait a minute. This could be problematic. So we'll see how it turns out.

How Mental Floss Evolved Over Its 20-Year History
"Hair. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much for having me. So you're the editor in chief of mental floss. Can we start with giving listeners. A little bit of context as to what mental floss is. It started as a print magazine right. Yes it actually was founded in a duke university dorm in two thousand one by two college students and Since then it has evolved into a website for curious minds where you can basically find You know answers to life's big questions or really fun and strange facts or interesting stories that you didn't know you needed to know And since we started the website has been visited by a billion people which is wild. So tell me a little more content focus so like it's it's not. It's not a newsy type magazine. A lot of its content is very evergreen. How would you describe like from land like an elevator. Pitch have what. What kind of world view is yes. So basically we are looking as you said kind of evergreen stuff were not You know we do cover like newsy stories but there are version of newsy stories. They're quirky they're interesting So we're not part of that news rat race which is nice because i do think people kind of look at mental floss as a bit of an escape from that And you know we're focusing on like weird historical stories and You know fun facts and and things of that nature. Speaking of fun facts. I i read that Mental floss print magazine made a cameo on friends. It did. it's actually been. I think it was on friends twice And it's been on a bunch of other tv shows including the oa and the magicians so Yeah for whatever reason. We've got fans in hollywood wishes which is nice.
A highlight from S6 E10 - Real Conversations on Mental Health (w/ Special Guest: Patricia Perkins)
"May is mental health awareness month. And i felt it only right to release an episode focusing on the topic of mental health. Now if you've listened to the podcast for any length of time you've no doubt heard me talk about my own struggles with ptsd depression and mon experiences. Not all that uncommon in the veteran community. What you don't often hear though is from the veteran's spouse and on today's episode. I get to sit down with my wife patricia. As she shares the story of her own emotional journey with mental health diagnoses medications. Hospital stays and a whole lot more. This is the we serve now. What podcast where. I do my best to answer the questions. Veterans and their families are already asking so you can make your post military life your best life by way of introduction my name is aaron perkins i am a us army combat veteran daddy to amazing kiddos. Host of this podcast. If you hadn't guessed. And i am joined today by my beautiful bride patricia. Welcome to the show thank you. I'm so glad to be here excited to talk about a subject that i'm passionate about. Yeah absolutely absolutely well. Great to have you here. I'm i'm incredibly happy that you agreed to be on the show. Usually it is me saying. Hey i'm going to be recording tonight. So if you you and the kids can kind of keep it down a little bit and but really really grateful that you here today. So today was one of many days where you're going through this. I don't know call procedure or treatment treatment. Okay so so. Obviously i went with you. Today is able to accompany you to that treatment and it specifically four depression right and so start with today. Let's start with today in a kind of what happened today. And what the treatment is. And let's start there. Sure okay so. The treatment is called. Tm s it means trans cranial magnetic stimulation menendez Treatment that oddly. Enough stimulates your brain. It's post what is supposed to do is to help the neurotransmitters talk to each other better and it is usually reserved for someone who's tried a few different types of medication for depression but it also helps with like anxiety. Ocd and sometimes even physical pain. Okay so so so. This is not a it. Sounds like it's a noninvasive. It's not a surgery type of thing so basically the way they explain it. It's like electromagnetic therapy. Where like in the old days where they would maybe cut. Open your head and maybe electric your brain things like that but this obviously they're not doing that. You can sit down in this chair. It's kind of like the big dentist chair. They strap you all in and they put this big magnet next to your head in a certain spot at a certain level. It's already been determined by your doctor and it made me last twenty minutes. And then you're you're on your way okay. So is that it's not obviously. I know this right before listeners. This is not like a one time thing. This is one of how many treatments you have to get. Okay so today was off my fourth treatment and i think if i did the math right i have at least thirty three more to go. So it's over a nine week period and because of where we live. I have to drive basically an hour and a half to get there. And then i'm there for fifteen to twenty minutes in the drive an hour and a half and and yeah i i definitely know that. That part in itself is frustrating. The drive so let's go back a little bit now so you're having this it might not be invasive but stewart pretty extreme treatment of kind of remapping your brain right yes. It's it's had some side effects already some some anger some tiredness Brain fog lightheadedness. The way the only way. I can explain it. It's like there's a big garden with a huge gate and there's all these locks and each treatment seems to slowly work open a new lock and then hopefully by the end all the locks will be open and king come open and i can be free of depression anxiety. I don't know if that's going to happen. I have faith that it can happen so hopefully it does happen. You me both you both so so take us back a little bit. How did you get to this point. You know obviously you. Have you know some sort of depression or anxiety or whatever take us back to diagnoses and that sort of thing so i i got diagnosed probably sixteen years ago like actual clinical diagnosis of major depressive disorder and house have severe anxiety. I have d. c. Ptsd so what is so ptsd. I know what is cd. Basically childhood post traumatic stress disorder. And then i have. Ocd okay so so ptsd. Veteran community intimately familiar with cps d c p s de. It is then the so. How did that come about. I mean this this is like you know really getting into the nitty gritty of it a little bit but i had parent you know. I had parents that. They weren't believers not that that makes you any less of a good parent but they were involved with things that they shouldn't have been involved with and they didn't have a good relationship with one another so that meant a very rocky relationship with their children and so without getting into too much and making people uncomfortable. This is a really bad childhood really bad and even in my teenage years there was some other stuff that was really bad. So just you know things that people don't really think about as being post traumatic stress disorder. I've heard other people say. How can you even have that. You weren't a soldier. Well that's not reserved for soldiers or servicemen period. Post traumatic stress can happen after a car accident after your home gets broken into after a traumatic. Any traumatic experience you can. Pdf st right right so so with depression. You were diagnosed. She said sixteen years ago crack and so did the anxiety diagnosis. Come along with that or out of that will work. It was shortly after. I think they at i thought maybe it was just really bad depression and they realized that it was both mint so they started treatment to different treatments who different medications and over the years between the two just the depression and anxiety. I know i've had over sixteen or seventeen medications and sixteen or seventeen. I didn't know there were that many others time for i mean i know. There's a lot of medications out there right. But most i know i i'm gonna go out on a limb here and say most people when they're struggling with anxiety depression or even if they do have a legitimate diagnosis of anxiety. Depression or both. It's okay let me go get this. Let me go try it. You know and then if that doesn't work maybe they go try something else but sixteen or seventeen that that just sounds like an extreme number is sensitive to medications and so what may work for a lot of people. Just doesn't seem to work for me. Or i ended up being allergic to it but i will say that i did. This test called a g. e. n. e. s. t. and it's a dna test and that's something that you're psychiatrists can do for you. There is a cost involved but it will tell you which medications and you know. They're all different classes. Work for your dna type so you have a red section and you should stay away from those. You have a yellow section. That may help. And then you have. A green section is more likely to help with your dna type so that can help a lot of people. Stay away from having to try sixteen or seventeen different medications. Sure sure that that's a really good point. And obviously you. You didn't take that 'til later. Right actually took it last year. Yeah so the break i. I wish i could have taken ten years ago. But i don't think even knew about it and that's another thing i would say. Is you know educate yourself. Don't wait on your doctors to find all the resolutions for you. Like feel free to look and research and bring it up to your doctor. you know. it's a good point. So medication is just one side of the depression anxiety. Ptsd just one side of it before the medication happens. There's something that either. Your doctors realize your families realize or you personally realize something different in me. Something is not working as it's supposed to or it's manifesting in in a certain way and i know that when it comes to ptsd specifically it manifests itself in a lot of different ways. They can manifest itself in anger in inability to focus and chronic pain. In a guilt it can manifest itself in different ways. So let's focus on the. Let's say let's. Let's go with depression right the major depressive disorder. How did that or does that manifest itself in your life. The first time. I realized that i might have an issue with. Depression was actually. I had a really bad episode. After i had caitlin so caitlyn's daughter. Sorry caitlyn's her daughter. Yeah she's fourteen now. After i had her. I was sitting just watching tv. And she was sitting there beside me and her little old bouncy seat. And i actually started having these really dark feelings kind of like oppression and actually that coincided with an anxiety attack as well and actually got rushed to the hospital because they thought i was having a pulmonary. Embolism so they thought that. I had blood clots. I was about to die. You know there was but it was a mixture of depressive episode and anxiety attack which i had never felt before and that really scared me and the doctors were able to put me on medication to help with that. It did not stop it but it did help. Sure sure so what what happens next. You know you're you're on this medication. It's helping look what happens. Is there a point at which you realize. That medication isn't working or isn't working as well as it should. Yeah most doctors will tell you you know. Give it two or three weeks to really get in your system if you don't see any changes or if you see getting worse than you're to want to let us know so that we can adjust or change that medication and over the years. That has happened so often. That i i got to this place and i'll say that it's okay to do this if you need to. Own your closet by yourself and cry for a little while. 'cause you're just overwhelmed and nothing seems to be working and you want so badly to be quote unquote normal. Go have cry. Go eat ice cream or chocolate or something. I don't even care. It's okay to do those things. But i got to this place where i was like. None of this is working. I need something completely different. And i think that's when. I did the insight site testing because most of the medications that i had been put on. Were in my red list more in the list that was for your dna. These are not going to work for you. Oh wow so going through this process and the truth is i didn't even realize this at the time we've been married for fifteen plus years and i knew that kept having different medications tried and you like oh. This is not working but we had no idea why. It's not working until this test. You didn't says hey this might actually work for you Yeah that's that stuff okay. So what about the anxiety piece you know. It started with an executive attack How does that manifest itself or did it manifest itself in your life. So i have an odd anxiety like i have panic. Attacks panic attacks but generally speaking. I'm just anxious and it's like my anxiety and my ocd. Like to just hold hands and frolic through my brain and so what. I'm feeling extremely anxious. I have to clean everything so it's kind of like since i can't control my emotions i can't control what's going on in the world. My brain has to find something that can control and the cleanliness in my house. I can control thankfully because you and the kids are pretty neat people. But i have to do have to be able to do something. Control something to calm down. If i don't do that ended up in the closet crying eating chocolate well like you said. That's okay if you have to do. It's not not not every day but so talked about the depression. Talk about the anxiety. Ptsd how does that manifest itself in your life on a day-to-day basis weekly basis. How how often what does it feel like said the. Ptsd is like a whole different monster. That lives somewhere inside of my person. And the worst episodes i have with. Ptsd is when my children especially caitlyn our daughter when she reaches those age those ages where you've espn we. We had talked about this a little bit today. As we're preparing for the podcast but it was as a recall kind of like the same ages or proxy ages where something traumatic happened in your own childhood right so so then. My brain is like imagine that happening to kaitlin. Imagine that having to our son. Christopher and then it's like this overwhelming like it's not a mama bear feeling is a mama dragon. And it's like i will. I will died to protect but at the same time. It's then there's this the the little girl in me is like. How could my mom have let that happen. How could my dad have let that happen. Where was the the parental. where were they. Why did these things even happened. That i have this trauma but we're all human doing the best. We can now. That i'm older i can. I can look at my pass without being completely angry with my parents because they were just doing their best as well. Sure sure so. We're won't take a break real quick but coming up after the break and now you have a few things that you want to share with our listeners. More as encouragement and continuing the story obviously but also practical steps. Stay with us. Many americans today don't realize the stress and anxiety. They feel is likely because of their finances. According to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today. Alright so here we are back. Second half of the show here with my wife patricia talking about mental health. And it's okay. She's looking at me right now. She's like oh just made a noise like it's okay. Well we'll cleared up. It's fine and so so anyway so here talking to my wife patricia about mental health and about her own challenges and struggles with it. And so obviously there's no one in your corner so to speak. I mean there's the stigma associated with it but there's also no one kind of coaching. You through this of like okay. Well if this isn't working here's what you do right not currently. I've had counselors in the past. You know and they've we've tried to work through things. I have been the hospital couple of times. And i think there's a lot of people who mean well but it doesn't mean it's going to work for you and so i feel it's important that people understand that if you do have a mental illness. It's okay to research an advocate for yourself. You don't have to wait on a doctor or counselor or someone who you feel like is more intelligent or just because they have letters after their name that they know you better than you do feel free. No not feel free. Please speak for yourself. that's huge. That is so huge. And i think that advocating for yourself is such a critical element of getting the help you need. Because when i think of veterans who are struggling right. You know whether whether it's a physical health or mental health concern. They know themselves like better than anyone else knows them and so when they go to the doctor when i as a veteran go to the doctor i have an obligation to myself right to be as honest and as really a as direct as i can like look. This is the problem. This is how. I'm feeling. I'm here for you to help me fix it right. But then there's the stigma especially in the military community. Where if something isn't working right in your brain you're not working right. Oh absolutely that is the stigma is is really and i think the worst thing about mental health diagnoses today at least in america. If not all over the world it absolutely needs to be normalized that your your brain is an oregon and just like your heart and all your heart muscle but you could knees your liver. If any of those things were failing if they weren't working like they were supposed to have so many people around you. Hey what can i do for you. What can i do for your family. Could i get my blood tested to see if i could be donor. How in the world could make your life better but you hear someone is in a three month depressive episode and they can't even get out of bed. I don't see people lining up with casseroles. I don't know. I don't see that happening. You know if you have to leave an event because you had an anxiety attack there's whispers. There's not help this is strong. It is so strong. And there's a you know within the military there is a fear and i will say rightly so that if you say hey i have this particular mental condition it can potentially impact your career and in the civilian world because well as a mom i if another mom i don't know maybe somebody's going to hear this and maybe they don't want their kids hanging out but as a mom you think. Oh can this person actually take care of my kid. While i'm away or is everything issue going to be too overwhelmed. Is she going to have some kind of attack. That i don okay. If you know somebody like that. Just educate yourself right and know that that person wouldn't take on that responsibility if they didn't feel they could handle it. Yeah absolutely and you know. That's a critical point to is. There is so much misinformation out there about mental health. And you know here's the thing. Hollywood doesn't help and i'm not going to rant. I'm not. I'm not trying to say like oh. Don't make movies about people with mental conditions. You know but there is this you know. The joker movie that just came out with a joaquin phoenix. That's joker yeah. Okay so you know. He obviously has a mental health problem. It looks like severe depression and he turns out to be this mass murderer. Right and so people associate edison. He's bipolar but go ahead. Fair enough fair enough so people associate those mental health conditions with something so extreme that they saw on a screen or read an article. now there are extreme cases. it's true. I mean you can't just say that that. No one is that bad off but there are people that bad off that they're not usually the people who look like they're doing okay. There those the people who are really struggling there are more signs right than than you just meeting them. Like if i just walked up to you and said hi. My name's patricia. Perkin tie you doing. You would never think i had five mental disorders right. You know someone. who's that far gone. You know they're going to be showing signs. Oh yeah absolutely for sure for sure and you know the thing is when it comes to mental health when it comes to you know having a a severe enough level of mental health challenges concerns whatever. You wanna call them. If you don't have an official diagnosis right there are so many. I guess levels is probably the best way to put it of of severity. Because you know like saying. Hey i'm feeling depressed for a couple of weeks is a far cry from major depressive disorder right okay. Yeah may i believe probably should have been a little more research but it would be depressed for at least six months before. It is a clinical diagnosis. And so there's going to be events someone dies. A friend moves away. You have to switch jobs then you could go through a you know a few days or a week of feeling depressed. That's normal. yeah exactly. That's the normal depression. That's not the go quick. It'll medication so you can feel better. That's right it's just a normal life happens and you get down and i've even had people say to me. Well you know you have a lot of stuff. You're very blessed. You have a nice home. You have a great husband. Smart kids you you you have you have you have you have. That has nothing to do. With what my brain is doing. I have the intelligence to know that. I a blessed person a blessed individual but that does not mean that my brain is going to let me enjoy all the time. Yeah that's so true. That is so true. And so i just saw an article earlier today from cnbc said fifty one percent of young americans are struggling with mental health. Fifty one percent. I can believe and i think a lot of that if i can just put in. My personal opinion is social media. I'm sure you constantly see people who are throwing up. There highlight reels on instagram. And some of them still on facebook and then those who are throwing out things on twitter but there you're not getting their whole life you don't read what's actually going on. I mean if people looked at my facebook they would see highlights. Because i want to show the good. I don't want to show the days. I don't wanna get out bed. Showed the days where. I'm like begrudgingly. Driving my kids to school because i have to. I'm an adult to do these things. You don't see those things and especially the generation under us. They're so obsessed with social media that they think that's real life. I mean i have a good life. But it's not insta worthy like everything. I do isn't gonna be popping up on instagram. Because it's not real life right. That's just advertising then like you said it's just highlights right. Yeah and so. I want to go back to the stigma piece for just a minute. Because that's a piece that i'm really passionate about and you know in the military you know being healthy being fit to fight. That's part of the job if you're broken your broken leg unit can't use you to go to war right. You have to get that leg fixed. I if you're broken mentally your unit may not be able to use you to go to war because like there's something wrong with you and like the. The thing is with the stigma. It's okay in you know outside of the military that things that your body or your brain is not working like it's supposed to and i've heard so many veterans so min- countless veterans really be rating their brothers and sisters in arms when they talk about having. Ptsd like your combat. Experience was different than mine. Therefore you don't have ptsd or you can't be depressed or you can't be anxious like you're just whining because you want to get paid from the va. You want the va to take care of you. That's ridiculous it. It really is our veterans out there who just looking for that that extra little bit of money out a month sure. There are but by and large the majority of veterans who who are having the courage to stand up and say. Hey i got something wrong in my brain. It's not working like supposed to. They should be applauded and say you know what that is. Surreal courage that you having right now to go and say i need help. Yes it takes a ton of courage and just in time out of being a military spouse and then my time out of it and interacting with veterans and even people who are still currently serving. They they have these but they don't even know how to say it out loud. They will become an alcoholic. But there's nothing wrong with me. I had no problem with war. Or when they get out of the military you know they get hooked on drugs. Oh in the military didn't affect me very much. I'll have i don't have any. Ptsd that that crazy stuff you know or all of a sudden. They're wife isn't good enough. Their kids aren't good enough and they want to be away from them at all times. They don't want that interaction but they say they're fine because they're afraid to say i might be broken inside and might need some help. So instead of having the courage to say that they are literally ruining their lives in other ways right what alcohol would drugs with breaking up their homes with neglecting their responsibilities. That's may there's so much i want to. I want to fix it right. I want to fix the stigma. Problem wanted but there is no easy way to do it. But i think what we're doing right here is having the conversation for the world to hear that. Look it's not just veterans. It's not just veteran spouses. It's according to that article. Fifty one percent of young americans who are struggling with some sort of mental health condition right regardless of what title you go by better in active duty man woman boy girl. Mental health is no respecter of persons. I'm sorry mental illness right. No you're right and mental health needs. You know it doesn't matter who you are. What are what color you are just like any like. I said any other body part in any other thing. That may need attention. Don't be afraid to give it that attention. Don't be afraid to speak up and speak out. Don't let the stigma hold down. Yeah for sure so from our conversation today. I know we're running up on time. So we're gonna wind this down and you know. Obviously you and. I have talked about this a lot and me in the future. I'm sure we will get you back on the show and talk and talk about about this and how fixing your life especially how the team s treatment is grain because he you know. I'm not afraid to talk about right. My inner demons especially can help somebody else. I feel like i feel like god puts us through situation so that we can help other people and if we can't take the bad and turn it around and help someone than what's it for and i have to have faith that it's it's to help others. Sure sure so. We have alluded to these three big takeaways right like the big takeaways from this episode. We've alluded to them throughout the episode. We've talked about them. We've even said them but remind us remind listeners. What those big three takeaways are from listening to this. I would say the first one is to advocate for yourself like i said. Don't be to research. Don't be afraid to figure out what might work for you. Ask for the jewish site testing. Ask for even if you've been on medication for a long time talking about the s you know there are other ways to go about it than just constantly saying in that cycle of pill after pill after pill with no results there. There is light at the end of the tunnel. So don't be afraid to say. Hey i think this might help me. What do you think. Don't wait on them. The second one i would say is. Don't let the stigma prevent you from seeking help Let's there is nothing wrong with you. If you have mental illness nothing like innately wrong review. You are just a person who is struggling and number three. I would say no that you are not alone like you were saying that article fifty one percent of young americans. This isn't even us. The older americans during these are young americans who were struggling. You're not alone. find group. fine fine started group. It right to you know. Don't don't stay alone either. When you isolate yourself things. Things often get worse so definitely seek out others who may have similar problems going on that you can talk through to to have some sort of accountability with and accountability is huge. It is huge and those are the three big ones. But i wanted to add one more. And it's something that i've done personally and it has to do with what i was talking about with social media and it's so funny because our pastors just said at this sunday delete block. You do not have to look at sally. Suzy sampson's and wish it was yours. Delete her blocking her. If if watching her highlight reel is taking your joy. Delete her if mr man who has it all together all the money all the muscles and the most beautiful wife you've ever seen if that stealing your joy delete him bought him because you need to focus on you and yours is so good. That is so so good so patricia. It is been an amazing conversation with you. I wanna thank you personally. Thank you for your courage to come on the show and talk about not just health in general but your own mental health your own struggles with the diagnoses. You know you've had hospital stays as a result had so many things going your life and so thank you so much for talking about this important topic with us you know. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is. This have accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ and before we go one thing. Patricia wanted me to point out was earlier. she referenced. cpt. St and she called it childhood. Ptsd it is actually complex. Ptsd would she informed me of later in complex. Ptsd is brought about from long term trauma that might be physical emotional sexual abuse own going childhood neglect things like that. It could even be a prisoner of war type of situation that brings about complex. Ptsd so just clarification. There that that was what she was referencing in the second. Half of the episode. You may have heard probably did hear a lot of clicking in the background while that clicking was my burien husky running around on a hardwood floor and unfortunately we can't edit that out he just kind of made a cameo appearance on the podcast so that dog is the way i deal with my ptsd and depression having a pet. It just helps a lot so anyway. Thank you so much for listening. It has been a joy sharing our hearts with you today. Be sure to check us out on social media. We at facebook at courage to fight again. Instagram also occurred to fight again and twitter at courage again and check us out on our website at courage to fight again dot com a whole lot. More resources there well until next time. Thanks for listening. We served now. What is a production of courage to fight again.
New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo again refuses to resign
"Have been moving fast. In governor cuomo's ever expanding set of scandals of the past forty eight hours from the news that his office apparently reached out to a number of different former employees to see if they'd spoken to The first accuser which seems weird an intimidating and it turns out that a former aide says that it was in fact intimidating and she felt bewildered by it to yesterday during an emergency meeting and state assembly announcing is going to be Starting an impeachment inquiry involving both the allegations of sexual harassment and assault as well as the nursing death scandal to about forty percent of his entire parties members in the assembly in the senate signing on asking for him to immediately resign and then there was this morning when representative alexandria ocasio. Cortez tweeted that after two accounts of sexual assault four counts of harassment. The attorney general's investigation. Finding the governor's admitted nursing home data from the legislature in public saying we agree with the fifty five plus members of new york state legislature. That the governor must resign. There was a letter that she put out with congressman bowman then at least eleven of the democratic house representatives from new york called for him to resign and just including jerry nadler button adler by the way and then just as we were going live. Senators schumer and gillibrand both also said that. His time for the governor to resign. As of this afternoon he said that he would would not which is what they always say until they do but he seems like a fighter jank for. What do you think is he. Is he gonna stick around no matter how many people tell them if biden gets involved yeah. I'm really curious what you think. Francesca there's one part of this tournament so that's already interesting of they. There's nothing that i'm talking about. In regards to andrew cuomo he's establishment democrat extraordinary. and he. he's been wrong on so many issues. and he's attacked progressives and good meaning people in behind the scenes a thousand different ways and a he's a political apparatchik extraordinarily now he's claiming like oh i'm just a regular joe. Your name is cuomo governor governor. Don't pretend you're one of us okay. You're an ultimate insider. Any use insider system to attack all of your opponents. You've done it for decades and and as anna keeps pointing out rightfully so the guy caught four hundred million dollars for medicaid actually overall customer is slated to be two and a half billion dollars to talk about of doing it in the middle of the pandemic delayed for after the pandemic but some of the cuts had already that he had done was the reason why they didn't have enough hospital beds and that's why he then took. Two people from the hospital was put in in the nursing homes and then everybody died nursing homes and so for all those reasons he already was a terrible governor from a perspective of people who i was gonna say progresses but really anybody critique of him is correct is my point sexual harassment issue. The only thing i have here is that. And that's why i'm curious. Were both of you guys. Think about it part of me thinks okay yes. Let's go through. The process like seles. Allegation is groping. If that's if that's true that's he should be gone within the minute right. So that's not an that's not a question. The question is how are these. Six six is a lot on the other hand. If you remember al franken it had piled up to be a big number but every one of them was like a fake picture. We took her picture once and put his hand around my shoulder and they were like. Oh levitin mike though. That's not eleven right. That's let's have an investigation so there is a part of me that says is you know. Do we have a. We sure that these are all true. One hundred percent. We can act on it and i get the other point. Which is they all. Have to be one hundred percent true. There's six of them. It looks like we've got an obvious pattern here. So francesca what are you. Oh yeah no. There's when this first broke weeks ago. I was like i've never been more sure that there was a giant iceberg underneath this very very tiny little tip that we're seeing sticking out of the water. You knew the goal and just it's it's his. I don't know. I'm not trying to be anti talion as someone like. Don't don't go to the mafias a brand new things but like the guy in clearly in exactly all the reason that you said in the ways it. He's bullied around his political opponents for years in the ways that he is so trump being in that he's got an gotten everything from his father and then also in the cavalier ways because some of these incidents were while he was rising to stardom. Which i gotta say man. It's been real fun to watch him fall as someone who was never on board for the rise who was look. It's a doing the absolute bare minimum the absolute bare minimum thing. You should do believing in science locking locking things down even though. I don't even think he did that. Amazing of a job. Yes i said it like. It's been nice to watch like. Oh here's the real cuomo and and like it's funny to me that there are so many cuomo's around this country there are so many sort of middling mediocre like kind legacy politicians dynastic politicians. who escaped by they. They assault a couple people. They bully their opponents but they kind of then. Then they get applauded. They come out with a book and they're fine. But i feel like the meteoric rise that he had under covert and the way that he laid into it so much just set him. He set himself up. It's like you could have just the way that trump could have been absolutely fine. Just doing cameos on home alone. Five or whatever it was and then he had to go and run for president And now we're looking at his taxes. So look here's my thing about resignation. I feel like it's a little bit of an escape hatch. And i think for when it comes to actually having investigation actually and as painful it as it is like having the people came forward to testify or discuss it absolutely like not or at least have an investigation. I don't know what it would look like. it feels. There would be more accountability. And i think that so many creeps and so many predators getaway in the workplace because there's no accountability to begin with so i'm not even sure if immediate resignation is accountability. Do do you know what i'm saying. Yeah i actually francesca. I love that point in that gets the another problem in the political system. So cuomo keep saying. I you know i wanted attorney general to do. Finish the investigation as letitia james and if we all believed that our democracy was on the level and politicians warn politicians. I'd say definitely finished investigation. Because i wanted to if he did it and we get it then that gives us closure as opposed to well. He's resigning you to deny it forever. Because then they won't bother finishing the investigation et cetera. Right but the problem is i. Don't trust politicians so is cuomo part of the reason cuomo's doing because he wants to delay it and then he thinks if i can just delayed thousand other political maneuvers to avoid it and the and then he keeps saying he wants so much that i a wonder is fisher. James doesn't look like a political ally of cuomo based on her previous experience right but one if she is something we don't and then they a bs investigation. Those women took you know suffer a second injustice so you think yeah and i just think it's important to mention though that like the investigation of sexual assault or harassment claim. Is it so hard because it is always a. He said she said type of situation. Which is why we have. Things like the slogan survivors right And believe women which because you have predators who will always deny it. I do not foresee a future in which andrew cuomo admits. Anything that i can be sure of. We might hear more about the stories from the from the staffers and the and the people who were he victimized but i do not foresee him being. I guess i remember doing that. No it's not gonna happen so again. I just want set that up that it's not a fair you're never gonna get to the truth kind of thing.

What is your down there to number two. Now i went back and forth on the sun a little bit because either of these two movies could have been my cameo spot Because they're are essentially the same cameo that said with a little nostalgic tent by number two is spiderman to hey nice another non. Speaking cameo stanley saves an innocent bystander from falling rubble during spider-man's fight with doctor octopus. And i remember both of these so vividly i was. I was going to pick spiderman one here. But i love spiderman to so much as a movie and it i mean he does the same thing in spider man. One during the fight with the green goblin some rebel falsely. Pull out of the way spiderman to he does exactly the same thing but spider man two so good and that's his character like i know he's created a lot of characters but when i think of stanley i think of spider man and i also think of what he was thinking in that scene. Which is man doctor. Octopus is up there yeah. Xl cr and then spider man. Who's busy fighting is thinking at the same time noah ben. I'm spider man. No more for it just wasn't related.

Interview With Bradley Kam
"We have a returning gas brian. Cameo from unstoppable domains and brad. Thanks for joining great. Thanks for Awesome awesome. so we've had you on before for those that maybe missed it. You can go to the reimagine twenty twenty youtube channel Up reimagined twenty two brought cameron and it will populate they're interesting story good stuff there You know for free that. Take a peek out. That i'm having back again. So hopefully we can shed some new light and get some updates in and see what's going on but bradey know what i noticed from. The last discussion is With quite get your journey like into blockchain I've done countless interviews now over the last four months and it'd be It's interesting you know. Love to hear your side and you found out in the rational and how you got into blockchain shore. So i i heard about it from the wired article in two thousand and eleven the rise and fall bitcoin which a lot of people probably heard him read and i remember thinking. Oh this is cool. And that i remember tossing the magazine aside and then nothing about it again. For a couple of years i moved out to san francisco in end of two thousand twelve december. Two thousand twelve to work on marketing tech startup. Six years working on that. But when i moved to san francisco. I moved into this hacker. House called twenty mission Right in the center of the mission district is crazy place a day. After i got there they were shooting horror. Fill there Just to give you kind of an idea of like what the building looks like They didn't need to change the scenery. It was ready to go for the film So there was like a clown getting murdered or something like that right outside my right outside. My door They eventually built it up a little bit. Got a little bit nicer but it was basically. I started by a early bitcoin supporter and essentially everybody. There was some sort of Some sort of a bitcoin enthusiast. The second bitcoin exchange was launched in the basement of the building Trade ill second. Bitcoin exchange in the us. bunch of early meet ups were in the building. The talk was giving talks in or courtyard before theorem. Live was basically everybody that i met when i moved to. San francisco was crypto person. Maybe three weeks. After i got there read the white paper You know maybe rented another couple of times just that first week thought it was one of the most amazing things i've ever heard was a little skeptical about whether or not this could actually work implementation. Wise i'm not ankle so i of needed to trust might eleborate friends. Essentially that this was like real from a tech perspective. They convinced me that it was and reading about it and think about it. Ever since i was more seven years ago. So how is living about pat. I don t twenty mission. It's not there anymore. I don't think right though. There is a lot of phases so a lot of a lot of those early folks in a lotta. Those early crypto folks are have since moved on But it was it was. It was pretty wild in the back in the day. I mean they were doing doing five hundred person. Y- parties with multiple. Dj's going until six am and stuff like that A lot of meet ups. It was amazing. I met so many. Jimmy's metallic was so he's to my. Cto is what was in a hacker house. I don't think he was. I think he might have been twenty mission as well but there was another one. A nearby and metallic was pitching a theory at that time Which kind of blew. Everybody's mind when he was trying to sell tokens and obviously my cto. Now wish he would have awesome. Yeah yes i didn't actually. I didn't get to talk to patel. Bear but it i did a. I was taking this class collection. You in south bay. And i think twenty fifteen and batali gave a talk Talking about a theory. And what. I heard it. It sounded like the most convoluted confusing thing ever. Everybody was like why. What's gas wise there. Gas is that different than ease. The token like it was just so confusing hours. Like is this really. Is this really going to work. It just seems so So bazaars i i didn't i didn't immediately get it. I don't think i'm probably took me another year. After the thing was was live when i started seeing some apps and then finally once i could see apps i was like okay now i get it now. This is a decentralized platform for apps

Because people said okay your resume stand out or we feel like you're overqualified or your underqualified or we're not going to hire you because you're just you know you're not the right fit for the position for whatever reason and then they give you a answering your light what that doesn't make any sense so that's why you see. The diverse group on the cover of the book and the title of the book is called chocolate drop in corporate america which is controversial to sam. But once you really look at the entire cover are in you see okay. The title says this but the cover shows inclusion diversity in it also shows a world. I wanted people to double take in say okay.

Up if i get unraveling and then the subtitle is from the pit to the palace because sometimes we have to go through dark seasons in our life in order to appreciate the the brightness and to appreciate the glory days
