Fresh update on "cole" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Bad people. A win. But you know who did? Let's continue. Where's my list? Robert Alderholt. Aderholt from Alabama wants to lose. Rick Allen from Georgia wants to lose. Mark Amadel from Nevada. Kelly Armstrong from North Dakota. Hear that on the Flag Radio Network? Kelly Armstrong feels good about his vote. Wants him gone. Unbelievable. Don Bacon, Nebraska. Troy Balderson from Ohio. Andy Barr from Kentucky. Cliff Bents from Oregon. Jack Bergman from Michigan. Stephanie Bice from Oklahoma. Ken Buck. Oh, Ken Buck. I'll tell you, you want to talk about blackmail. That guy's being blackmailed. Larry Boushcon from Indiana. Michael Burgess from Texas. Ken Calvert from California. Mike Carey from Ohio. Earl Buddy Carter from Georgia. Lori Chavez-Derimer from Oregon. Juan Siskamani from Arizona. Tom Cole from Oklahoma. And, of course, Mr. Comer, as I've mentioned before. You know that there were eight Republicans that sided together to not impeach Mayorkas? Patrick McHenry from North Carolina. Tom McClintock from California. John Duarte from California. Virginia Fox from North Carolina. Darrell Issa from California. Cliff Bents from Oregon. Ken Buck and Mike Turner. So, no impeachment of Mayorkas, no impeachment of Merrick Garland, no impeachment of Joe Biden, but an expulsion of one of your own Republican colleagues. No impeachment of Christopher Wray. By the way, we couldn't even get Marjorie Taylor-Greene's provision to censure Rashida Tlaib. And yet, Republicans are so excited to go after George Santos. Again, George Santos, he's a clown. I just want to make sure everyone is clear about that, okay? But we're in the midst of a bitter struggle for our Republic, and our margin is this big. And this is what they spend their priorities on? Yes. So let me tell you a funny story. So we do this at Turning Point Action, where we prepare, we do a scorecard. If you guys don't know, you guys can see all of your members of Congress, how they have voted. I think we have the best scorecard out there. We should talk about it more often. We should get Tyler on the show next week. It's tpaction.com, you can look at our scorecard, tpaction.com slash scorecard. So we are going through, because you have to have a certain vote total, because we tally all your votes, to even be considered for an endorsement from Turning Point Action, which I believe is a very important endorsement, right? Tons of grassroots activists, a lot of muscle, hardest working people in the movement. You guys know the power of Turning Point. Glory be to God of how much he has blessed us. And so we are sitting in our room, just looking at the data, right? All personal bias aside, because we don't want any personal bias to come into our endorsements, and we have a whole committee, and we have to do votes, and very, very procedural, right? But even to make the vote to be able to be endorsed, you have to have a certain threshold, okay? And so we're going through it, and I was like, this can't be, right? And we have a picture of it, I said, who got a 96 lifetime score? And again, it's just the numbers. It doesn't deal with any convictions or any of that stuff, or convictions or indictments. George Santos is one of the best records of voting in the last 12 months of any member of Congress.
A highlight from Crypto Venture Funding is Down; But Bitcoin Building Continues
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Sunday, September 17th, and that means it's time for Long Read Sunday. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello, friends. Happy Sunday. Today, we are reading parts of two pieces which on the surface aren't really about the same thing, but which I think have more in common than it might seem, as I will try to prove to you by the end of this conversation. The first piece is by L. Asher Corson, a partner at UTXO Management and was originally published in Bitcoin Magazine. The piece is titled A Bitcoin Maximalist's Ode to Ordinals. Al Asher writes, As a Bitcoin maximalist, I love ordinals. Other maximalists should also consider loving ordinals as they demonstrate Bitcoin superiority in ways not previously possible. Ordinals enable functionalities that undermine the need for other blockchains to even exist. The use cases that were demonstrated on other blockchains are now possible natively on Bitcoin. Despite Bitcoin's strengthening position, some self -proclaimed maximalists on X, formerly Twitter, bizarrely celebrated decreased network fees and declared ordinals have failed. This seemingly implies that Bitcoin might somehow benefit from a failure of the ordinals protocol and lower minor earnings. But ordinals haven't failed, and the interest isn't nearly over. To the contrary, trading volume across digital artifacts, unique satoshis, and BRC20 tokens has been historic. According to Cryptoslam, which tracks on -chain NFT volume, ordinals have done over $500 million of trading volume since they were launched at the beginning of 2023. Despite volume and prices being down currently, investors in the ecosystem are writing big checks to ordinals companies. X -verse in ordinals wallet just raised $5 million on a $50 million valuation from some of the most sophisticated investors in the ecosystem. It's far more likely we are at the beginning of this phenomenon than the end. Now, from there, the author goes into a little bit of a description about what ordinals actually are, which we will skip for the purposes of this piece, just because that's obviously something that we've covered here on the show, or if you need a refresher, you can go check out on Bitcoin builders. Continuing, however, they write, Bitcoin maximalists understand that there have never been serious contenders to replace Bitcoin as digital money. Absolute digital scarcity is unlikely to be discovered again because the circumstances surrounding Bitcoin's creation were so unique, in part because today's government understands the risks of letting a decentralized network grow too large and they won't let it happen again. On the other hand, viable altcoin use cases are related to features that Bitcoin couldn't previously support. Some of the use cases that the market has indisputably embraced include decentralized trading, NFTs, stablecoins, capital formation, borrowing and lending, and on -chain leverage. From there, the author goes on to share numbers from DEXs, from NFT trading, that reinforce their point that, like them or not, the market has validated these things as uses of digital assets that people really like. Indeed they write, Although many don't like it, these use cases will exist somewhere because the market has an appetite for them. My strong preference is that they exist primarily on Bitcoin and not on other chains. Ordinals have the potential to not only enable these use cases to be built natively on Bitcoin, but also to surpass their altcoin versions in terms of implementation. These would be better built on Bitcoin because the protocol itself is more decentralized and secure than altcoins. Bitcoin is the largest market cap compared to all the other chains that can support the development of these use cases. But also better because these use cases will be tailored to the Bitcoin community and will therefore embody Bitcoin ideals of decentralization, immutability, and permissionlessness. The author then quotes Danny Hoop describing the properties of a digital artifact. This is from July of this year. Danny tweets, A digital artifact has these properties. 1. They can be owned. 2. They are complete without off -chain pointers. 3. They are permissionless. 4. They are uncensorable. 5. They are immutable. Almost all Ethereum NFTs do not satisfy all five of these. In particular, most Ethereum NFTs use off -chain pointers, and even for the few that do not, some of them are not immutable and can be changed by the creator. L. Asher continues, Imagine a piece of digital art worth $1 million. Or imagine politically sensitive information like classified documents that detail government atrocities. Should these valuable or sensitive assets be distributed using technology that can easily disappear or that can be easily changed? The answer is obviously no. It's also somewhat obvious that over time, the best artists, developers, activists and investors will gravitate towards technology with stronger immutability that is capable of protecting their creation, information or investment for hundreds or even thousands of years. In the case of digital art specifically, they will migrate to digital artifacts on Bitcoin that store the actual artwork instead of NFTs that just point to where it's stored on an off -chain server that could go down at any time. The piece concludes, Bitcoin stands atop the world of digital money and the rise of ordinals only cements that standing. OK, so before I get into how this relates to the second piece, let's actually just go read excerpts from that second piece. This one is by Chris Cole Besswick, the founder and managing partner at Transcend Labs, which is a startup accelerator. The piece seemingly combining my daily podcasts in one is AI is Killing Crypto Venture Capital Interest. Now, the TLDR of this piece is exactly what the title says, quote, The venture capital space has lost significant momentum over the last few quarters. Global venture funding is nearly half of what it was last year. Whatever remains of the market is now being directed towards AI funds. AI has become the golden goose for VC firms after the turbulence in crypto in the last year. Now, Chris's first discussion is about just the shift in VC in general. He writes, Although AI has picked up pace, the VC market is nowhere close to where it was in 21 and 22. With higher interest rates and a sustained supply chain shortage, the global market is an ideal. In my field of startup incubation, I've experienced the shift firsthand. Back in 2020 and 2021, investors were much more likely to fund lofty ideas with very little supporting evidence. But today, even the most promising startups have a hard time gaining the attention of top VCs. According to Crunchbase, global venture funding in Q2 fell 49 % compared to the second quarter of 2022. The overall deal volume has also decreased significantly by 37%. Now, as Chris points out, the big reason for this is macro. We are living through the transition of a zero or near zero interest rate world to a world of 5, 6, 7 % interest rates. The net impact of that is that capital that previously had to flow to more exotic and risky parts of the market, private equity, venture capital, just to get yield in a zero interest rate world, now doesn't have to do that. It doesn't have to take on the same sort of risk. And so money is being withdrawn from the venture ecosystem and put to work in other places. I was myself at a venture firm for a while in the teens in San Francisco. It was remarkable the extent to which the venture capital industry didn't really understand or didn't seem to understand or at least didn't talk about how much of what was going on in our little corner of South Park was actually dictated by what was going on in the halls of the Fed. But to the extent that people didn't realize that, they are learning that lesson acutely now. And in that environment, where there isn't necessarily a next big fund to raise, VC habits aren't changing. necessarily Kevin Colleran, a co -founder at Slow Ventures, said, I haven't written any checks in the past 18 months. I have 30 portfolio companies that I need to help figure out how to survive. There is no point for me to add to the misery. Still, as Chris writes, quote, for crypto, the situation is worse. The total value of deals in Q2 of this year was $2 .34 billion compared to $12 .14 billion a year ago. So what caused this collapse? After a hype -fueled bull run starting in 2020, Chris writes, a slew of disastrous events discouraged even the most pro -crypto VCs. Now of course, Chris rightly points to the fall of SPF and FTX as the most significant factor. He writes, the FTX fiasco destroyed whatever investor confidence was left in the crypto industry, resulting in major investors moving away to greener pastures. Big VCs like Sequoia and investor in FTX are slashing their crypto funds. Now it should be noted that Sequoia had a super weird deal with SAM, where they invested in FTX, and inversely, SAM invested as an LP in them, which doesn't undermine Chris's point. In fact, it validates it that the weird things that were happening in the previous era are simply no longer happening anymore. At the same time, Chris points out that the other thing that happened in November of 2022 outside of FTX's collapse was the launch of ChatGPT. He writes, the AI dominance started the same month FTX collapsed, filling the vacuum created in the market. Since then, AI has been unstoppable. Chris then recounts a number of more personal examples of where he's seen VCs turn away from crypto and towards AI, and how crypto projects have tried to incorporate AI to try to be on trend. He also points out that while sometimes that works and integrating AI actually strengthens the project, many times it doesn't. He concludes, so is there a way out for crypto founders? Of course there is. Unlike mainstream AI, which isn't even a year old, crypto has been present for more than a decade. Thanks to the cyclical movement of the crypto economy, we can confidently predict more innovation in investor interest as the bear market ends. Lower interest rates, globalized crypto regulation, Bitcoin ETF approvals, and more TradFi involvement in crypto could all reignite VC flows. Okay, so here's why I wanted to connect the dots between this piece and the ordinals piece. It is very easy to look at overall statistics and see capital flowing into crypto being down as an inherently bad thing. Now certainly, anyone who has invested in this space should want great projects to have access to aligned capital. Capital that shares long term vision and wants to support those companies through ups and downs. The reality is, a huge, huge amount of the capital that flowed into crypto and indeed that flows into crypto at every cycle peak was wildly misaligned, wildly unproductive. Much of it was just arbitrage, taking advantage of tokens to make money faster than traditional venture capital otherwise would. This isn't to say that bull market funding didn't fund great projects too, it's just to point out that the more capital sloshing around there is, the less of a quality barrier there's going to be. We are now in a very different, much more brutal environment, one where it's going to take a lot more to peel venture capital dollars away from investors. The downside of that is that some projects that would otherwise have been great will simply not be funded. The upside is that the projects that do get funded and that do make it through this are likely to be much stronger on average than those that came out of the top of the bull market. What's more, and this is the reason that I wanted to put the ordinals piece alongside this, there is no law that says that innovation has to come from venture capital. As trite as it is to say, one project which never received any VC funding was, of course, Bitcoin itself. Yes, our author from the first piece pointed out that some ordinals projects have been able to get VC funding because of the excitement around them, but the vast majority of people that are hacking on ordinals, experimenting with it, aren't doing so with VC money backing them. They're doing it because the protocol is exciting to them because it opens up new opportunities. Whatever one thinks of ordinals, it is exemplary of what's going to come out of this bear market and the VC drought, which is interesting things that create real and new and differentiated value that people decide are worth working on, even if they're not able to get big venture capital checks to do so. I don't want to undermine how hard it is to be in this type of environment, especially in one where there's been such a big shift and where many startups are and will die because of it. But there's a lot of good on the other side too, and a lot to look forward to in the strength that comes from going through this type of environment. Anyways, guys, that is going to do it for this week's LRS. Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks once again to these authors for their great pieces, and until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.

So I hope you've been keeping track, Michael Hopkins, because we're going to be looking for you, Nicole Marie, myself and our team here to kind of, you know, choose who was who's at the top of the list. So we'll kind of talk about those in the running. And then at the end of December, we'll actually announce who made it to number one on our most fascinating guest on the Hair Radio Morning Show for 2023. So I'm super excited. Oh, yeah. Yeah. So in years past, folks like the Gorilla Glue Doctor has been on our most fascinating, Matthew Knowles from Destiny's Child, you know, father of Beyonce, Miss Dionne Warwick has been on our most fascinating list, Melba Moore. So many some of our archive pieces with look at the amazing, wonderful Cynthia Bailey, who we didn't get that on in recent times. So many folks. So I cannot wait. This is something we'll be really, really sharing. So Michael, you've been talking about this all week on the broadcast and it's just time to go ahead and get it on. It's called the Christmas Song. And Michael, why is that your favorite? Oh, okay. It's just memories back home in Philly and just the snow, you know, my grandma, my mother, my aunt, cousins, friends, the old neighborhood. And we, you know, every year, wow, I want to see what Greg or some of my buddies that I grew up with just to see what they got for Christmas. And then we'd ride bikes if the snow wasn't on the ground. Just beautiful memories like that. And I always cherish those memories, Karen. We do too, right here at the Hair Radio Morning Show. Again, it's Nat King Cole. And like you said earlier, it's not Christmas until he gets his underway. So we're kind of rolling our season here, starting our season on the broadcast. So we're going to end out today's show with just the playing of the Christmas song by none other than the king of Christmas, Mr. Nat King Cole. And I'm Carrie Hines in Brooklyn, New York with Michael Hopkins down in beautiful Spotsylvania, Virginia.

We'll see you back here next week. Make it a great weekend, everybody. Awesome job. Oh, yeah.
Remembering Black Hair Care Pioneer Dr. Willie Morrow With Mary Reed-Johnson
"Am so excited to welcome back to the broadcast today. Our special incredible guest host, guest contributor. You guys know her from Hairhead Heart. Well, I am so excited to just to have her back to talk on this very particular topic that she does. It's really like a series that she does exclusively for us at the Hair Radio Morning Show. It's her 10 things you should know. So who gets the treatment today? It is a gentleman that we just recently lost. Of course, we're talking about the mega, mega superstar in the way of black hair care, Dr. Willie Morrow. So Mary Rhee Johnson, good morning and welcome back to the Hair Radio Morning Show. Absolutely glad to be here. It's always just exciting. I just appreciate you. Well, back at you. And we're going to find out all about what's new with you and Hairhead Heart coming up a bit later. So first, Mary, we just got to jump in. What on earth? Now, listen, I thought I knew just about everything about Dr. Willie Morrow. And just to tell you quickly, yeah, I had interviewed him like literally decades ago. We're talking over about, well, here's my age going out there, but about 20 something years ago, literally. And his daughter and I have been friends ever since. Cheryl Morrow has been an incredible beacon in my little life. And the fans, you guys have gotten to know her. She's been on the Hair Radio Morning Show many, many, many times. And that's her family and what they represent and what she represents. And she's carried the torch. I call her literally Hair Royalty. You'll always hear that. That's how I refer to her. Because to me, Dr. Morrow's the hair king. So I'm real excited. So I can't wait to hear what Mary Rhee Johnson has put together for us today. So Mary Rhee Johnson, take it away. All right. Well, number one, legends never die. So even though he's not physically here with us. We're starting at number 10, right, Mary? Yes. We're going to count meow. Yes. So this is number 10. Yes. In recognition of that, I'm going to say everybody's got to lay hands on CBS Sunday morning. There was just a small tribute to him. And I think that's him probably. Look at the July 17th, if you can find it. CBS Sunday morning. And you'll see a little bit about. Yeah. You can YouTube the guys out there. So yeah. Yeah. So I think that's always good. So that would be my number 10. But he had a lot of layers. So we're going to chop into some of those layers that Willie represented. And one of them ties into what you mentioned already about his daughter, Cheryl. So one of the things Willie had was a newspaper. And it was called the San Diego Monitor. And he actually ran it for many years. And then his daughter, Cheryl, took it over. So I think that's another interesting fact about Willie. Absolutely. In fact, the San Diego Monitor news that Cheryl does, she has taken over that, which has been incredible. And it's a great digital brand. I usually get the digital version online and read. Cheryl herself always has a unique way of looking at things. And she's been able to do some incredible things with this. And I kind of always think of her as kind of almost like the same as the story with Matt King Cole, and then you got Natalie and her success. That's what Cheryl has always put me in the mind for, lack of a better, different way to say it. But that's what she's always put me in the mind of, just someone who carries the beacon on from a very successful dad. So this is the type of thing. And you don't have to always come from royalty. I'll say fact number eight would be that he came from, now he had two children, but he came from a fairly large family by these standards. He was one of eight children. Yes. And yes, I did that. From, was he born out in California? Oh, no. He was from Alabama. Oh, okay. Yep. And his mother and father, excuse me, I'm going to say that they would be the next one, number seven, they were sharecroppers. And you know what a sharecropper is? Well, I definitely remember, wasn't the sharecropper the folks who, after slavery ended, maintained the land for people to have firearms and stuff like that? But tell us, yeah, tell us what your research revealed. Well, that is exactly, so his parents, like he created a legacy in royalty, but he didn't come from that is what I'm saying. But it doesn't matter. It's like if you are of sound mind and have intent to do better for the world around you, then you can. Like he didn't let anything stop him. Wow. Well, I'm just, yeah, I'm impressed with that. I really am. And to, you know, I have to say to hear so many incredible folks in the hair and beauty industry talk so lovingly of Dr. Morrow's commitment to the hair and beauty industry, and what he has done for so many, I'm raising my hand as well. He's always been someone that I have modeled my career and life after as well. And everybody I know, we all look up to Dr. Morrow, everybody I know in the hair business. So this has been, yeah, it's really big. Thank you, Mary, for doing this. This helps us to put his life into perspective. And we wanted to do that as a very special tribute on our broadcast.
Fresh update on "cole" discussed on The Hair Radio Show with Kerry Hines
"Okay. Christmas lighting. So we'll talk about that we'll be putting that together and we'll be sharing those photos online, and you can share your Christmas tree photos as well. And I wonder if Michael Hopkins, who is our host, he is the veteran's veteran. You guys know him. He is out of spots in Virginia originally from Philadelphia. And like I said, he's the host of the Vet Talk Radio, so he's an accredited claims agent. He helps these veterans to navigate the claims process so that they can receive the proper disability compensation. And so I'm always proud of the work that he's doing. His show airs on Tuesday mornings, 830 Eastern Time. And if you're out in the Central Time Zone again, that's about 730. So it's my great honor and pleasure to bring to the line the one, the only Michael Hopkins. Good morning, Michael. How are you? Yes, it is. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. Happy to show it to you, sir. Right back at you, Carrie Hines. Okay. Well, Michael, it's our show number 927 and Friday, December 1st. And I was just saying, have you put up the Hopkins family tree yet? Oh, oh, wow. Carrie, that is a great question. Well, right now, we just working on that bad boy. You know how it says under construction? Yeah, we're working on that bad boy. Wow. So what tells about your tree? What do you guys normally do? Do you get the real trees and go Christmas tree shopping, you and the fam? Or do you guys just kind of like me, take it out of the closet, take it out of the box, but a few little things together with, I forget what they said, quick bam, boom, the tree is up. Oh, wow. Michael, when I was a kid, it was a big process. We, we, we do our thing and we have to go, my wife and I, we have to go find a real tree. We just have to, it's that smell, you know, it's like the hunt of the right tree, the branches got to be a certain way and can't be spaces. I've never had an actual live tree, never in my whole life. Wow. Really? No, never, because growing up in Philadelphia, my mom was a nurse, a single woman out there, kind of like a real life version of Diane Carroll's TV show. What was the name of that TV show? Oh, Julia? Julia, yes. She was the nurse with the little boy, although my mom was the mom of nine children. So, lots of siblings, but no, we always had an artificial tree, which I, I love the artificial trees. Do not get me wrong. Those, I just, I grew up with those. I remember we started early on with the real, with the aluminum kind of looking ones and then we moved into the more realistic ones and I love them. The aluminum ones, I remember when I was a kid, you'd have a light that used to shine onto the tree and change colors with whatever light was shining on. Yeah, those were, that's what we start. Well, that's what I remember. My siblings, remember it like it was yesterday. Well, I loved it. I'd forgotten all about that until this very moment. Oh yeah. I really had, Michael. So, I've never conjured up that memory, but I love it. And so, no, we always, I always have the artificial trees and here at the Hair Radio Morning Show headquarters, I was years without a tree at all, but I said, no, our fans, we have to talk about it on our show. We're going to do a tiny tree lighting one day and here we are. So, I cannot wait to share what's going on with that, but yeah, there'll be time to, but I think December 1st, I normally kind of put the tree up in November because I like to extend the Christmas holidays. I think it's too short, but this time I didn't get around. We've been so busy, which we're going to talk about all that, Michael, but we've been so busy that we're just getting this underway. So, we will be, I'm taking Christmas all the way out to like Valentine's Day. So, I don't know what you got to do, but we're taking it all the way out to the next holiday. So listen, Michael. Yeah. So, good stuff. I'm real happy to hear you're going to get to it. We're going to be back with some of your favorite Christmas songs. I know you're waiting for next. Oh, yeah. And I know it's Christmas, Kerry. Nat King Cole. Yeah. You know what? We're going to get it on and just for a little bit, the amazing Nat King Cole. When I grew up, my mom always had the, speaking of my mom, she has been gut-wrestled, so she has the Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald album. Oh, yeah. You heard of that album, Michael? It was one album. One side was Nat King Cole, the other side was Ella Fitzgerald, and they both were, they would sing Christmas songs, but I don't think they had a song together. It was literally just one album, and I remember hearing those. No one could sing those songs other than maybe Mahalia Jackson could sing, like those. I mean, we just had extraordinary black talent. I just have to say it. Oh, very much so. Yes. Talent, Karen. That's the key word, like you just said. Talent. We still do. It's just not, sadly, because we, you know, our megaphones have been kind of dimmed and our voices have been kind of squashed and marginalized. We still have talent. It's just not promoted as it should be, and that's my opinion. So we're working on that, correcting that horrible, you know, sentiment out here. We're trying to put on our Hair Radio Morning Show each day, empowering and just uplifting our community. We love you. We hope that you just, you know, just do some big things. We're going to help you to accomplish those things. So it's important to listen to the Hair Radio Morning Show and the Vet Talk Radio Show. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. So, Michael, we've got to look ahead now. Vet Talk, you are on Tuesday morning. That's our next live broadcast. Show number 948 will be Tuesday next week. So the Hair Radio Morning Show is on from 6 to 9, but you come on about 830 a.m. Eastern. So if you're already listening to the Hair Radio Morning Show, then it rolls right on in with the Vet Talk Radio Show. So I'm going to kind of talk about what can your fans, Michael Hopkins fans now, look forward to the Vet Talk Radio Show next week. I know exactly what it's about. Michael. Oh, yeah. Okay. It's one of your favorite topics on the show. Okay. We're going to get it tonight. Oh, yeah. We're going to dive deep into the secondaries of tonight. It's scary. And it's so far. Great, great program. Love it. Well, thank you, Michael. I think tonight is going to be a wrap up of that for you. You'll be in your third installment. Right. So you're wrapping up on it. And these, again, are overlooked secondary emanating from tonight. So you really want to look. And Michael draws it all out. And I can't and so you don't want to miss the next Vet Talk Radio Show again, Tuesday morning, 830 Eastern, 730 Central. So, Michael, before we move along, some more vet talk coming up in just a bit. How do you, what's the weather like down there in Spotsylvania, Virginia? I just want to check in with you on that. Oh, Carrie, one word, freezing. Really? I think it's mild. Oh, yeah. It's about 44 degrees here now. Oh, really? Lucky you. Oh, it's definitely been cold as all get up in the mornings down here. Oh, yeah. Even the frost has frost on it. Spotsylvania, Virginia. Michael, is that Northern Virginia or Southern Virginia or Central Virginia? Oh, wow. It's actually on the tip of Northern Virginia. We're like an hour away from Richmond, Virginia, the capital of Virginia. And we're an hour away from the capital of the United States, Washington, D.C. So we're kind of in the middle of everything. Oh, okay. So I just want to get an idea. So it's today you're having a chilly day. Okay, wow. Very much so. Well, we'll see some of our New York heat. Oh, yeah. If you could FedEx that or, you know, whatever kind of way you could get it down here. Oh, that would be great. Well, listen, speaking of heat, we've got so much to share with everybody today. I'm so, so hyped about it because, yeah, first of all, our Salon TV Next network rolls on. It's broadcasting. I'm going to just take a quick look and switch over to the Salon TV Network and see what's playing. But, yeah, I'm super, super excited about it because, again, it's about updates and keeping folks informed and that you can advertise. Now, we license you to carry, too, which means that you can put the Salon TV on in your shop or your home television. And this is not something that you can find online. The only way that you can actually watch the Salon TV Network, you've got to be licensed to stream it. So that's what we do. So you have to reach out to our office, and we're happy, happy, happy to get you all set up. We create radio content for you. We create commercial content for you that you can watch, that will air, and it's affordable and has a great impact. And our Salon TV Network is already airing in several states in America and will and can be seen around the world. So it's a lot more to come on that. We've got a long way to go, and we're just happy to get started. So I just want to make sure folks are aware that we are moving forward with our Salon TV Network. How does that sound, Brother Michael? Oh, super fantastic, my friend. Super fantastic. Okay, yeah. Now, speaking of updates, everybody's been asking me about Afro Lock Magazine. And I just want to say that Afro Lock Magazine will be back in January, so next month, with an all new issue. So I got to really buckle down and work, because folks, when it comes to Afro Lock Magazine, they want the very best. We're looking at some beautiful content with beautiful pictures, beautiful stories, well-written and thought out and creative. And we're just looking at black excellence. So that is getting to work. Yeah, so I got a lot of stuff I'm doing, Michael Hopkins. And then I've shared on Facebook, I go back to last March, during the time, it was this year, but it was early this year, when we were at the International Beauty Show, IBS, you guys know New York, IBS New York. And we also had our own New York City live stage show. So Michael, you can see the videos we've posted, some interviews there. From March, it was excellent. Just a beautiful event. So I kind of just reshare it. We're looking back, sharing memories and all that wonderful good stuff. Is that not nice? Now, did you enjoy the show? Was there anything that jumped out at you, Michael Hopkins? Oh yeah, it was our nominee, our Academy Award nominee, Camille. I just, I love hearing her talk. You know, Carrie, I love hearing her talk about that aspect of the entertainment industry that she's in. No matter how many times we have that piece on, I just love it because she is just so informative. She is. She is. Camille's friend, who we, you know, she's out in Hollywood, and she's a friend to the Hair Radio Morning Show, as you guys who are tuned in. If you miss it, we'll get, you can listen on the replay a little later after we wrap up our live show. But yeah, Camille is just amazing. And to be nominated for an Academy Award, as she mentioned, she was like three or four times being nominated, and she finally is getting closer. So she didn't let this go around, but we're going to keep our fingers crossed for her. I'm sure she'll be nominated again. I think she, as she mentioned, she worked on a Denzel Washington project just recently, and so we'll hear more about all that, and The Little Mermaid, and What Kind of Rather, and all that kind of stuff. As she started out on TV, and this is going to age, she's probably going to kill me, but you know, because this goes back. But it's my favorite TV show, Third Rock From the Sun, and so I'm so happy. You've been doing it up. Yeah, it's still funny. I should watch that show today, and just sit here and laugh. Oh, me too, Carrie. And you know something, Carrie? To me, for John Lefkow, you know, it was, to me, it was a kind of departure from what we were used to seeing him in in his acting career. Never really saw him as in a comedic role. Yeah, one of the first movies that I remember going to see as a little kid was John Lefkow in this movie called The World According to God. Oh, very much so. And we both starred in that movie, and it was just a weird movie. It really was. Yeah, it was. But it was a strange movie. But John Lefkow is an incredible actor, as you see demonstrated on that show. He's just a very funny man, but he's also a dramatic talent, and he's just an all-around kind of fella, and so I love all of that. Yeah, and I love, you know, we talk about some of the great classic movies and TV shows and music and all that right here on the Hair Radio Morning Show, and never forget their style. They've got an element of style and so forth, and we love that. So listen, Michael Hopkins, I'm kind of enjoying all of this today. I want to talk about our guest coming up in the next hour. All week we have been playing some clips and talking about the natural hair fest, which has been something very important. The natural hair fest, which was just held over the weekend, this past weekend, which I just love because it really brought together a lot of folks who need to know, you know, there were patrons or event care. I started the show with a presentation on the Crown Act and also the aspects of natural hair and different things and the trending aspects. We're going to talk about that the next hour, but I just loved it, and they came out to support me. Folks, I had no idea, so I was very excited about that. We're going to get into that in the next hour, but our special guest in the spotlight hour should be, I'm going to keep my fingers crossed, Mark David Carter should be here. And so, you know, yeah, looking forward to that. So Michael, we're going to get on our playlist. We're going to talk a little bit more on fan day Friday and so much going on. Okay, let's kind of get a little bit, like you said, Michael, it's not Christmas until you hear this wonderful, wonderful Christmas rendition, and we'll get on a few more. We're going to mix it up a little bit. We're going to play some of your favorite Christmas songs, but we'll also continue with some of our incredible tribute to some of these legendary music artists that have been, in my opinion, overlooked in recent times, and we want to kind of give them a little bit of some kind of accolades, if you will, or some attention. And then Michael, I do want to talk a little bit quickly about, you know, speaking up to some of the folks who've been on, like Mark David Carter and Camille Friend and so many others in 2023. I want to take a look at some of our fascinating guests. So you don't, we're going to talk a little bit about that at the top of the next hour and just so much. So you got to just stay with us. Now, how's that, Michael? Hey, sounds like a plan to me, Gary Hines.
A highlight from 115: Part 2: Ric Prado Hunts Osama bin Laden and Leads the CIA Response after 9/11
"Our case is more like what the FBI did, you know, infiltrating the mafia or something like that. We have to maintain a clandestine and secure relationship, but also a very healthy relationship. We have a motto in the business that says you never fall in love with your agent, but you make them think that you're in love with them. You're always stops testing them, you're always double checking, you always put them under surveillance to make sure that they're doing what they say that we're doing, but it is very different because it's a very different goal. We don't work on problems, we work on intelligence. Well let's use that as a good springboard to start moving forward because a lot of your world starts changing, we start talking about the Cold War, you start talking about terrorism starts rearing its head, but at some point you became, worked with Michael Schur and Alex Station, the bin Laden unit. Tell us about that. Yeah, I had just come back from Korea, I had just gotten my GS -15, and I was the head of the Palestinian branch for CTC, our counter -terrorist center, and I got called into the front office by the chief of ops, and he said, look, you know, your name has been raised to be deputy chief of station for this virtual station targeting terrorism. I had never heard of virtual station, we were the first, and talking to my boss I said, well thank you boss, I mean of course I'll, you know, deputy chief of station, hell yeah, but who are we going after? And he said Osama bin Laden. And I said, who? And he goes, exactly. Mike Sawyer, Sawyer was the analyst that had been following this, so he was the chief of station for Alex Station, I was his deputy chief of station, and I was the senior ops officer, we only had two other case officers, the rest were analysts, incredible analysts and targeting officers. And by the way, that's the very same unit that eventually got bin Laden, you know, geo -located and allowed under our authorities for the SEAL team to go shoot him in the face. Excellent. Room temperature was a good result for that, but yeah, and the sad part is too, I did some work with the state department over in Islamabad training their police, their federal investigative agency, special investigative group, and while we were there at that time is about the time they figured bin Laden ended up in Abbottabad, and that's just about 30 clicks north, 30 or 40 clicks north of Islamabad, you know, right under literally everybody's noses. I just, I still have some heartburn over how much cooperation he got from the Pakistani government. Did you have concerns about that or am I just off in left field here? No, the Pakistani government is completely dual purpose. You have people that love us and people that love to kill us, meaning Americans. They're the ones that created the Taliban, for God's sake. The ISI. Their intelligence service literally was the ones that actually helped create the Taliban. So that penetration was always there. We did have, according to people that worked there, I never did, we did have some very good relationships liaison with some Pakistanis, but they were infiltrated from the other side too quite a bit. Yeah, we ended up kicking a couple people out of our training that had, once some tenuous connections came to light, it was like, yeah, I think it spells ISI is what you should have put down as your organization, but what I'm interested in, let's go back to that because that, you know, like you said, bin Laden who, not many people took him seriously. He issued his fatwa, you know, he said, here's what we're going to do. And then we started getting the bombings. We got some bombings of the embassies, right? That's correct. Well, you know, yeah, that is one of the things that set us all off because we had, when bin Laden was still in Khartoum, when we opened up the station, when we started Alex Stationing, and we had recorded intelligence from a very dear friend of mine, a Green Beret legend and CIA legend by the name of Billy Waugh. Billy was the head of security for Black in Khartoum at the time when he was there. He's also the guy that saw and helped arrest, helped capture Carlos the Jackal, the renowned terrorist from the 70s in Europe, but he was the guy in charge of doing surveillance of bin Laden. And he had him, you know, he knew what he was going to have for lunch. He knew what car he drove. He was in the white. He was not concerned because, you know, in Khartoum at the time, it was like a terrorist hotel and he was putting, pouring all kinds of money. So we came up with several plans to kidnap him, to kill him, whatever it took. And the then administration kept saying, well, we don't have enough proof. And our argument was we got overhead from satellites of the kind of training that he's facilitating with former jihadists in these other countries. We're getting all source information from all kinds of different governments that he's extorting money from the Saudis. He's doing this. He's doing that. He's bringing people in from Afghanistan when, you know, the motto of CTC is supposed to This is what we do. And the administration never, ever bought off on that. And what I always tell people is that imagine in 1997 or late 96, early 97, if we would have been able to neutralize bin Laden, the coal, the bombings of our two embassies and maybe even 9 -11 could have been derailed. You know, and I'll give away a little bit of your book here, Chapter 28, where you talk about that. You know, I mean, you just lay it out and I love it. You know, the answer is clear, thanks to the history and hindsight. Those 4 ,000 people killed in one of the U .S. Embassy attacks in Africa will still be alive today. Untraumatized, unscarred by their terrible luck, USS Cole would never have been attacked. The Pentagon would have never been hit by the American Airlines flight. The Twin Towers would still be standing. The 3 ,000 people who died in the World Trade Center still be with us. Families wouldn't be unaffected. I mean, it just goes on and on. It's amazing how much destruction, terrorism, chaos, anarchy he caused, and the point from all of this is that our administration at the time didn't have the cojones to take care of business. That is the bottom line. I mean, you do a very good job explaining that in the book. I really appreciated that. Thank you. I'd say it was definitely a fact. You know, at the time the agency was supporting us. They were carrying our water across the river, but we were definitely not getting the traction there. And a lot of people took that very personal, especially I was Chief of Officer of the Counter -Terrorist Center when 9 -11 happened. So that really stuck in my craw. Well, I can't imagine. Well, and there's an interesting... Some of it, maybe it's a little bit lower, but when the original World Trade Center attacks happened, they tried to bomb them, the idiots, which thankfully they returned the van trying to... They tried to report it stolen. That's how we ended up getting the guys. But one of the things that came out of this, I think that helped them with their future planning is when they were in court, they bring in some of the structural engineers. You come to find out the World Trade Center, the twin towers were designed to withstand the impact of a 737. So then you start... So why are the 757s and 67s targeted? Why? Because unfortunately, you never know what kind of information is going to be used by somebody later. And that's... I don't know if that helped formulate some of his planning, but it's definitely some of the stuff that came out when you find out what they're designed to withstand. And then, like you say, you get... We see... I think part of our failing is we tend to think too short -term. Why would they think like that? That's not the point. You need to think like your adversary. Your adversary doesn't think like you. That's why they win. That's why they're able to pull off a lot of the stuff, because they're thinking differently than us. I want to get into 9 -11 and what you see there. But up until that point, what do you think was the biggest impediment other than political? Was it the way that we had been trained that we didn't really understand Islamic law? We didn't understand what bin Laden... that he really meant the fatwa that he did? Were there some other things that contributed to this other than political? Political is the number one problem that you have. You cannot run operations, military or intelligence, through an optic of politics. It's two different worlds.
How Pleasant Hill Plans to Boost Economic Activity With Councilwoman Sue Noack
"Development is always a question I ask, what is Pleasant Hill doing to attract new business as to the city? Whether a it's new restaurant, a storefront location or an employment center, what are some of the things that Pleasant Hill is doing to attract those customers? So really what we're focused on right now is bringing back the businesses from COVID, right? And we lost some businesses in that and some were struggling, and so we want to bring that back. So there are two things that we're doing with some of our IRPA funds. And one of them is this Pleasant Hill perks card concept, right? So if you buy a Pleasant Hill perks card for 100 bucks, the city gives you 50 out of our IRPA funds. And so you can only spend it on those organizations or entities within Pleasant Hill. So that's trying to bring money into our businesses that survive COVID and that still exist. The other thing we did is we use some of the IRPA money to provide grants to businesses that may have not had as much of an online presence as was so helpful during COVID. So we have a grant program so business can apply for grants to get assistance dollar wise and also connections to other entities to provide them with that assistance to make their online presence better. So those are two things. The other thing that we focus on is making our city vibrant so people want to move into our city, right? And that's keeping the roads nice. We have free parking. We don't have meters anywhere in our city at all. And that's a big deal. A lot of people like to come to a city where they don't have to worry about paying for parking. And so we get a lot of people from outside Pleasant Hill coming into Pleasant Hill. So those are some of the things we're doing that are more soft items, making the city just more pleasant. Downtown is being redone. Some of the owners of downtown are redoing a plaza to make it more friendly for people to come and take food and sit outside and relax and chat with people. So there's work being done there as well. So I think there's a lot of good work being done. We're never going to be a super big retail site. We're just not big enough. We have some on the edges, right? So the Coles Crossing area is a good shopping area and then up by Target and Safeway. Those are Pleasant Hill. The Sun Valley Mall is not, but further west of that is Pleasant Hill again. So those areas we want to make sure traffic can flow. That's tricky up there. We're 680 and Contra Costa Boulevard are, but trying to make those entities vibrant as well as making sure people can access them easily and get there. So those are our bigger retail areas. So, and we have an economic development person who spends a lot of time talking to businesses that might have an interest in coming into Pleasant Hill. And I think as everybody is facing, there's a change in how people buy things these days, right? Whether they go online or whether they go to the store. And so we have to look at those changes and see what services still require bricks and mortar. And that's what we need to attract.
Chloe Cole: Speaking Against Gender-Transition Treatment for Minors

Debt limit deal heads to vote in full House while McCarthy scrambles for GOP approval
"The debt ceiling and budget deal worked out between House speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Biden has advanced to the full House, where a vote is expected Wednesday. I'm Ben Thomas with a look at its progress. The House rules committee voted 7 to 6 to advance the bill, chairman Tom Cole, an Oklahoma Republican calling it a product of compromise. And reflects the realities of a divided government. We shouldn't allow that to overshadow what this bill accomplishes. It would restrict spending for the next two years while also suspending the nation's debt limit during that time, and the nonpartisan congressional budget office says it reduces deficits by $1.5 trillion over the decade, but South Carolina Republican Ralph Norman also a member of the freedom caucus was disappointed. We had a real bill that was going to make a difference. We did in the original bill. This being watered down is completely takes the teeth out of it. And I see why the Democrats vote for it. I see it now. He and Texas congressman chip Roy, who earlier in the day, said not one Republican should vote for this deal. Join Democrats in opposing the bill's advance. Ranking Democrat Jim mcgovern of Massachusetts accusing the GOP of weaponizing the debt ceiling, saying it's a precedent that will forever haunt the nation. One party can use the full faith and credit of the United States as a hostage to pass their widely unpopular ideas. Adding, someday, hopefully not in my lifetime, but someday there will be a Republican president. And you will remember this moment because what you are trying to do is get things enacted that you could not get done through regular order. Ben Thomas, Washington
Facing GOP backlash, McCarthy labors to shore up votes for debt deal in time to prevent US default
"House speaker Kevin McCarthy is hunting votes for the dead ceiling and budget deal he negotiated with President Biden, a bill conservatives are blasting for not having enough spending cuts. Some Republicans like Oklahoma's Tom Cole say the bill does the job by avoiding a debt default. And we will achieve real reductions in spending while doing so. But the hard right house freedom caucus and chairman Scott Perry say there aren't nearly enough. And we will do everything in our power to stop it. With some conservatives warning of potentially trying to oust McCarthy. I'm not sure what everybody wanted. We couldn't get everything we wanted. He needs two thirds of Republicans to approve the bill. Here at The White House. This compromise agreement is reasonable for both sides. Budget chief shalanda young says the discussion now should be about getting the bill to President Biden, not about which party won. The American people came out ahead. Sagar Meghani at The White House.
The Latest in Sports
"AP's sports and Mike Reeves, it was a frantic finish at the Indianapolis 500, our Tom McKay reports. Josef Newgarden used a one lap shootout to grab the lead from 2022 champ Marcus Ericsson to win the Indy 500. You know, I wasn't looking to take anyone else out of the race, but I was going to put my car on the line to win. And I was either going to win the race or I was going to end up in the wall. Newgarden driving for team owner Roger Penske survived a chaotic final 40 miles, which saw the race stop three times for Rex. Major League Baseball the rays win a wild one over the Dodgers in Tampa Bay, correspondent Steve Carney provides the details. The Tampa Bay Rays used a 7th inning RBI ground out by wander Franco to break a ten ten tie and defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 11 to ten. Both starters got hit around as Gavin stone allowed 7 runs in two innings of work, while Josh Fleming allowed ten runs in 6 innings, including 5 home runs, Tampa Bay finishes at ten game home stands 7 and three, while the Dodgers complete their longest road trip of 2023 with a four and 6 Mark. The Yankees used a 7 run third inning to defeat the Padres ten to 7, Aaron judge and Harrison Bader hit home runs to support winning pitcher Garrett Cole, who is now 6 and zero. This was a good team win today for sure. I mean, being able to kind of subdue them through the middle innings and keep the momentum. I thought played in our favor, but it's just such a luxury to have the offense.

Rizzo delivers go-ahead hit, injures neck as Yanks chase Darvish early in 10-7 win over Padres
"The Yankees took two or three from San Diego with a ten to 7 win trailing three to one the Yankees blasted you Darvish for 7 runs in the third inning. Garrett Cole allowed 6 runs, but he survived for the win he 6 O. This was a good team win today for sure. I mean, being able to kind of subdue them through the middle innings and keep the momentum. I thought played in our favor, but it's just such a luxury to have the offense. The Yankees had 12 hits, they improved to 32 and 23, the Padres now 24 and 29. Mike mancuso in New York

"AP sports I'm David Schuster, it's round two for both the NBA and NHL playoffs and Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden. It was game two between New York and Miami and Tom Marion was there. The next show some heart when they needed it most to beat the heat one 11 one O 5 and game two to tie their Eastern Conference semifinal series at a game of peace. The Knicks already down a game where down 6 points of the heat with 7 minutes remaining, but outscored Miami 24 12 the rest of the way, as Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart combined for 20 points down the stretch. Jimmy Butler missed the game for the heat with an injured ankle, but Julius Randle returned from his ankle sprain to score 25 for the Knicks. Brunson let all scores with 30. Meanwhile, out in the Bay Area, Anthony Davis had 30 points at 23 rebounds. The Lakers taking game one against Golden State one 17 one 12.

And down in Dallas, Yanni gourde scored the game winner in overtime Seattle prevailing 5 four over the stars, turning the baseball, the Yankee snapped their four game losing streak forward to over Cleveland, Gary Cole, with another good outing. It was a good punch and counter punch and I was glad to be able to get deep enough that, you know, we could use our guys, you know, and leverage if we did indeed get the lead, which we did. In Tampa, the rays improved to 24 and 6 with a four one victory over Pittsburgh. Elsewhere, Ryan monkcastle hit two home runs Baltimore 11 7 over Kansas City, and Connor Wong had two home runs, Boston 7 6 over Toronto and back in pro basketball, Joel embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers named the league's MVP.

Bride Magazine Puts Hairy Man In Dress On Latest Cover
"If you're appalled by some of these Victoria's secrets, images, you ain't seen nothing yet. Take a peek at this. Okay, so this is brides today magazine in India. This is their Instagram account and apparently this is their new digital cover, and they're celebrating transgenderism. And if you're listening to this on the podcast, I'm just going to describe it. It is a very, very hairy man. Lots of arm hair, lots of poly back hair. Lots of hair, just everywhere. I mean, lots of hair. Facial hair, the whole bit. And he's wearing lots of jewelry as well in a fancy Sari. And a lot of makeup. And this is how they're celebrating transgenderism. So once again, putting people on a pedestal. Now, I got nothing against, you know, you do, you do you and I'll do me, okay? You want to do that fine. But when you start shoving it down people's throat over and over and over again in society and celebrating in a way that I think leaves a lot of young kids really confused, then we're talking a whole different thing. You heard my interview the other day with Chloe Cole, the young girl who at 12 years old was like, I don't really like this old girl thing because she's going through all the things that girls go through at 12, 13, 14, 15 by 15. They had operated on her and done a double mastectomy, and she realized, you know what, that wasn't going to solve any of her problems. That she actually did want to be a woman. And now she can't even get them to pay for reconstructive surgery. They're of no help. She wants to transition fine. The medical community do anything to help her detransition whole other story. So I think that this sort of push, which is designed to make us all more accepting, it may come from some good intention somewhere I actually don't think it does. I think it's extremely political. But let's just assume that they're trying to do this so that we're all a little bit more open minded. Okay, fine, but you're taking it to a whole other level.
House GOP Rushes Bill to Make Some Spending Cuts, Raise Debt Ceiling
"McCarthy says he's got the votes to shove through very quickly a plan that would raise the debt ceiling. Now, look, if this is, in my concern here is this is happening so fast. That you've got some Republicans out there, not house freedom caucus folks mind you, but you have other Republicans, including congresswoman Nancy mace at a South Carolina who's basically a conservative Democrat, and then you've got our good friend, congressman Tim burchett, from right here in Tennessee, where we broadcast this national radio program, and there among those saying, hey, wow Nellie. Everything, huh? They're saying this thing is being shoved through and they haven't had a chance to really talk about this, but the house is scheduled to vote sometime today. To raise the debt ceiling. Now there is there are some spending cuts connected to this, but we don't have the details. So that's my concern is all of this is being done in closed doors. A House rules committee chairman Tom Cole, from Oklahoma, told reporters that he does have the votes. This is after a 6 hour hearing overnight to get the bill ready for the floor. And I think we've all been down this road before ladies and gentlemen, where lawmakers, when they stay overnight in the capital, very bad things happen to your wallet and sometimes to the interns. No, I'm just kidding. But nothing good ever happens after dark at the U.S. capitol. I think we can all agree to that. So
Why Chris Kohls Wanted to Review the Original "Karate Kid"
"Chris Cole's welcome back. It's been a while. Yeah, it has actually, not for the listener, or the viewer, but for us it has because we shot these in a weird order. It has it feels like a really long time, but it's so fun to get back into it, and what a great movie to do so with Karate Kid a classic. The first in a franchise, cartoons remakes, you name it now a new TV show Cobra Kai a spin off. You chose this movie, why did you choose it, Chris? Well, you know, this is one of my childhood favorites. I think it's my brother's was my brother's favorite movie for many, many years. And it's just one of these films where when you're a kid, you know, it's an underdog story. It's obviously it's like one of the quintessential underdog stories in history. And underdog stories have existed since the dawn of time. But I don't think they ever made one quite like this, and then once they made Karate Kid, I don't know if everybody remembers this. I was born in 79. So when this movie came out, I was about four years old. But it was a phenomenon. I mean, it was sort of in the same way Beverly Hills cop was. This may have even been bigger because although it didn't do as well as at the box office, this was a movie for kids and at least kids of my generation, everybody just loved Karate Kid. People wanted to take karate, Japanese culture became more interesting to people and this movie just changed American culture. It was a really, really big deal. They did the underdog story better than probably anybody else ever except for probably rocky, obviously. What's the connection? The connection of course is the same director. Yes, same guy who did rocky John Alvin also directed this one. He was accused of making basically rocky with karate for kids, so basically it's a ripoff of his own movie.
Cole, Manoah scoreless after chirping, Yanks beat Jays 3-2
"The Yankees got clutch hits from an established veteran and a raw rookie to beat the Blue Jays three to two. Pinch hitter DJ Lemay, whose bases loaded single against the 5 man infield on the bottom of the knife gave New York the win after Toronto had tied the game at two on pinch hitter Danny Jansen's two and Homer in the top of the inning. The Yankees looked like they were going to win this pitcher's duel when rookie Anthony volpi hit a two run Homer for two zero lead in the bottom of the 8th. Anytime you have a really good division opponent like that and we play them as much as we do coming up, we really want to take these games. Garrett Cole and Alec mino and that's zeros on the mound. Coal lowered is ERA to 0.79, while we know it gave up just two hits and 7 innings. Time area New York
Chloe Cole Is in the Process of Transitioning Back to Her Born Gender
"Next guest, she's suing. She's suing Kaiser health because she said at the tender age of 12, she was pushed into, becoming a man, and it turned out that wasn't the right thing for her. And she thinks there were monetary reasons for doing it. She believes they intimidated her parents into doing this. And they've offered no help in the D transitioning process. Joining me right now, I'd like to welcome Chloe Cole. Walk me through what happened initially when you were 12 years old. At 12 was when I started to really experience feelings of distress having to do with my body and being female. As a kid, I was always kind of on the tomboy side. More so as I got older and especially as I hit puberty, I really just sworn in, be one with the boys. Well, it's not fun. By the way, hello. As a woman. I'll tell you. Those are probably some of the most miserable years of my life. 12, 13. I mean, not easy. And if I could have been shown a path where I didn't have to go through all that, I mean, people men don't quite get it, I don't think, but it's not fun. I mean, I meant to have their struggles, but it is. The grass is totally greener on the other side, and that's really how I thought of it. I would often hear from women and other girls my age just how awful being a girl was things like periods and female puberty. And how scary things like pregnancy and childbirth and menopause were and nobody would ever talk about how great all those things really were. They are and I have three children of my own and I would just say that is scary as it is as a young girl when you think about these changes your body is going through eventually you realize that you have the ability to create a human being, which is just a miracle, a complete miracle from God

"FX's snowball, the final season, all new Wednesdays, on FX, stream on Hulu. And we are back at Nashville. We're halftime of Tennessee. It almost Tennessee with a slight lead. This will be state winning the early game. Probably almost definitely locking in a bid to the tournament, whether they are in a play in or inside the field. We don't know. We're just talk show hosts. Adam Cole joining us from covers auburn for the OA news and the AU blog Adam, good to see you. Thanks for making your way to the booth here. We had Bruce pearl on yesterday. He was Bruce pearl. Yeah. Yeah. That's the truth. Well, yeah, no, it's definitely, it's exciting to be here. I really appreciate you guys having me on, especially at what's really just kind of an interesting juncture for auburn men's basketball. Let's talk about it because it seemed like yesterday, although I think it's four years that auburn was in the final four, you were still a student. By the way, what was I like to be a student when your team goes to the final four? Oh, well, I was, so I actually I wasn't at all. No, I went to university of Missouri. Well, then I know what it's like not to go to the phone. Yeah, there you go. But no, I definitely, it's funny because I remember when I got here, I very much remember that game and coming down to the last possession and it's definitely been interesting to step in this year and just kind of see what's I guess been built here at auburn and of course you know what wasn't here before Bruce pearl got there. Were you in the Jay school at Missouri? I asked that question because I've worked for a number of Missouri graduates who in my early days in the newspaper and they always told me it was the best day school in the country. That's the moniker it gets. Yeah, that was a lot of fun too and it's been crazy, especially just only a couple of years out just seeing so many faces around and about. We were out there one year for SEC nation and I was invited to grow speaking. I will tell you, I've spoken a couple of places in my career. I was fairly intimidated to go in there with the best and the brightest because you just don't show up in Colombia and check the box and say you're going. You have to be admitted. Yeah, no, it's definitely, that is a rigorous process. I think I remember, I think that was actually my freshman year. I remember covering you guys coming out for the student radio station actually. So definitely small world. I should have remembered you then. Yeah. So back to auburn. What's it like to cover Bruce pearl? He's great. He's phenomenal to work with. And, you know, I mean, I don't speak from a lot of experience, but he's probably been one of the best coaches I've been able to cover in terms of just accessibility and just kind of what he lets you into. And the group that he's got, he's fun, but they're fun too. Just a lot of personality. And I think we kind of saw that yesterday. This group coming out and they're dancing at shoot around and you've got Katie Johnson stealing January brooms chained during media availability yesterday and then January walks out and he's got Katie Johnson's chain on. I think it's a fun environment and I think it's certainly infectious and starts at the coach. Well, we'll obviously follow and see what happens tonight with auburn. There are in the field, of course, their season was on the brink until they beat Tennessee the other day. Let me get to football for a second Adam because the Hugh free story was one of the bigger stories of the off season. He is a polarizing figure, but having said all that, you know, from a distance and I haven't been to auburn since he was hired. It seems like it's really going over well. Yeah, it's definitely one of the things that I think has been kind of in the back of the head as he started out is the bar was pretty low coming in, but he's, I mean, he's more than exceeded it. I would say to this point, what he did with recruiting was really impressive and there was a sense of urgency to it. And you're seeing that, I think, already with spring practices, you know, I think the first team, if not one of the first in the SEC to start spring practices, and he's talked about it too, he's like, we feel like we have to hit the ground running, get this thing going, get everything installed, and it's definitely it's been a hot start, a fast start, and it's going to be really interesting to see where it goes throughout the rest of the spring for sure. The question I keep getting is the quarterback room. What's it look like? And what do you think is going to happen? A shocking amount of just not a lot of change. Which I think is something that nobody was really expecting coming to this point. You figure they would have dipped into the portal got one guy, at least, and they didn't get anybody entertained a few names. And now you've got kind of all the same suspects from last year. And at this point, I think Robbie Ashford is the clear favorite. You know, he came in and he maintained that starting job last year under circumstances of, you know, you have a head coach get fired. You've got an offensive line that's beat up, banged up and you're face and pressure left and right. And he played through a lot of injury. He talked about that after the iron bowl, but you got to see improvement from him, I think this spring. The numbers on the ground looked great, but through the air, I think if I'm right, he was one of those. How do you think he fits freezes system? Because freeze is such a respected offensive coach. I think he fits it really well. I think he fits in a lot better than what Brian harsen kind of had there and it's a passing game that film Montgomery that the offensive coordinator talked about it earlier this spring, but just they want to spread people out and they attack deep. In the passing game and I think that's really big. And he's had some dual threat quarterbacks too who in the past have had some success Malik Willis, former auburn quarterback. You know, had a lot of success under him at liberty. And I think Robbie is the same mold. It's just a matter of how much will they be able to mold him, especially in the spring because if he's looking great going out of it, you know, I think that you wonder whether or not they'd go into the portal, but you almost lean more likely that they may not, if they're feeling really confident and Robbie. So it's going to be a really big spring for that quarterback room, but for Robbie. I realize you don't know who's going to be in the portal, but is there a sense that is there is there something someone you think he freezes looking around for or waiting for? That's a good question. I don't know that I have my finger on that pulse per se, but I'm always looking for that doomsday scenario. No, I didn't go to Missouri. I certainly, it'll be interesting to see how it shakes out if they find themselves in a place where they feel like they need to dip into the portal and get somebody, especially because it'd be such

All 6. It was, I think it was time when we were bringing the next group of recruits and as we were getting close to the bowl game all the early enrollees. And I walked past the conversation, they're asking some kid his birthday and he said, I was like 19 or 2004, 2003. And I was like, oh my gosh, I said man, it's time to get out of here. I said, holy cow. But I mean, all to say, though, if I wouldn't have played this last year and use every ounce of eligibility I had, I would have been pinching myself every day. I mean, being a part of this season and you know from going to Tennessee, what football means to that school into those fans and to be a part of a season like this. I mean, heck, I'm excited to be a fan next year. And go into a season with such energy and restored passion. I mean, I'm sorry. And I say this because obviously a lot of different fan bases are out there, but Tennessee is not unique. I mean, there are other places, I saw the emotions in 2013 at auburn. Even though auburn had beaten Alabama a couple of years earlier. It was just a way it happened, but it is hard to explain to someone who is not a Tennessee fan. The significance of it. Absolutely. It's just not a random win. I'll tell you what, not being a Tennessee fan going into my playing career there. You knew about the traditions, right? You knew the checkerboard in zones. You knew running through the TU new paint Manning. But to really get the true story of what a lot of those rivalries mean to fans there. And I say a lot of

"In the SEC. No, and I think sometimes people say that you have to be there, but I will say the television presentation of it was intoxicating. It was just one of the most priceless moments. I think in college in modern college football. I mean, I almost wish I could be into settings at one time right there. Be in there with the video available. Yeah, being with the fans, seeing the fireworks go off and then actually being on the field with the fan. That's the first time I've ever been a part of a field storming, you know? What was it? When you were down there and fans were going crazy, I know it's the moment you want to last forever, but how did you deal with that? And honestly, it's hard for me to look back on it. I was just trying to soak every second in. But it was just the raw emotion you saw on those fans. I mean, their faces, you know, how they were going about. I mean, they had never been a part of that. I mean, and I'm not talking about the student section hadn't been a part of it. I mean, you had mothers and fathers out there that had never been a part of something like that. No, I think I told you once. Whatever year I started writing for the school paper. I was interviewing a guy in the locker room. He was a senior, a good player, too. He was crying. This big offensive lineman, and I asked him, I said, I mean, I was cynical. I was like four straight lost Alabama. He said, I won't be now I have to tell my children and grandchildren. I never could beat Alabama. I mean, that's it. So many other players have had that feeling. Absolutely. And, you know, just to be able and I keep going back to that game. But to talk in a sense like that, but then to be able to say I was a part of this game. You know, this one, when Tennessee got back on Alabama, it was in that fashion. That's just special. It was a home game. It was your undefeated going into it. You know, you eventually got to be ranked number one's shortly after. I mean, all those things factored into the special season that we had. But to not only say I beat Alabama, but I beat Alabama on the third Saturday October in 2022. That will carry a lot of weight for a long, long time. So the season finally ends for you, your career, long career. Very long. Very long. Very long. I mean, you'll never have to look back and go, man, I wish I had a couple more years.

The bullpen better be all hands on deck for that day. The freaking bullpen, I do want to talk about this to the thing with Gerrit Cole, frankly, is obviously he's had struggles for a while now, whether it's the hamstring, whether it's mental, whether it's fatigue, whatnot. I'm glad it is Garrett Cole struggling and not some flash in the pan like Robbie ray struggling at the tail end of the season, trying to get it together. Because if it were, let's say Nestor Cortez junior is getting bombed all September. I love him. I love the story. I love what he's giving us. But I definitely don't have full faith in a mental checkbook to be like, masters got October. He's been good his whole career in October. Like there's no, you know, I've got nothing to reference. Cole I know is Derek Cole. Nothing changes that you can't say that losing his substances ruined his season, potentially, it's messing with his mind a little bit now. It's probably something that's in the back of his head at all times. But his numbers since the sticky substance band, he's up to like a 4.15 ERA or something, but he's up to he's past 6 in September because of whatever else is bug him. So you take that out and there's really, you know, hasn't been that large a cause and effect since that moment outside of just a couple rough starts. He hasn't been perfect this year. I would be, I don't think he deserves to be the same. If you like garrick's had a great year with a couple of really brutal public stinkers..

I answered no to that one Junior wooded you junior took the test to junior. How did you answer yes or no. 'cause i answered. Yes oh okay well so that is really important too though. And that's a great place to start because you know you should be able to speak up for yourself. Always right in order to be healthy mentally and emotionally. Yes but most of find it very strict inducing especially if you were raised in a particular way where you're supposed to be a good kid you know. Be a good girl. Smile be happy. Don't be a troublemaker. Like all of these things that are in grain and our unconscious mind about speaking up being the same as being troublemaker. Or stirring the pot. Wow wow wow so.

"Man. Garrett Cole was sent to the mound on Wednesday night to face the Los Angeles angels to avoid the series sweep. How many times does this come? How many times is Garrett Cole been asked to stop the bleeding? How many times did it happen? How many times it hasn't happened? Have there been concerns about girls and ace? I know I've had them. Call me a psycho, but I've had them when the Yankees sign up to a 9 year or $324 million contract. I just wasn't sure. He had a shaky kind of go in Pittsburgh. I know it's Pittsburgh, so you can't really you can't really take that too seriously, but then he heads to Houston. And look, I'll talk about it. We had the whole allegations of the doctoring baseballs in Houston, and then Gerrit Cole, all of a sudden becomes one of the arguably at top three picture in baseball. If Justin Verlander's on on his team or Justin Verlander doesn't exist, he at least wins a Cy Young award while he's there. Led the league in strikeouts in 2019 with 326. So did it feel like at the time the Yankees were maybe getting hosed and free agency by paying him $36 million a year, which was by far the highest paid starting pitcher in the history of baseball, I don't know. Obviously not now, but at the time, it was a worthwhile question. Why can't we have doubts? Why can't we have questions? I know it was great. A lot of fans just didn't even care. They were like, we're getting an ace or we're getting an ace like pitcher, haven't had this since the turn of the decade with CC Sabathia. It doesn't matter. We just need a guy who can pump. We need a guy who can give us length. We need a power pitcher, bring it on. Everyone was happy. A lot of people were happy. I was happy. I just had some doubts. And you know what? Gary Cole is silenced all of those doubts. And last night was probably the the obviously the latest, but it was the most refreshing evidence yet. 15 strikeout performance 7 innings one.

And we're talking with terry about how to become our be a boundary boss so terry claim that most of us were never taught how to effectively express our preferences desires or dealbreakers. Can you elaborate on this a little bit. Nope i think the line drought back. Hang on all right collar back all right well. This book is really good. You guys and and i do feel that you know women really deal with this more than men at absolutely they do And it's it's about personal guidelines like she said and so i was saying during the broadcast earlier that Are you a high functioning codependent. Here's some of the questions that that i you know made me think. Wow maybe this is me so the first one and junior let me know when you get her back on the line but oh she's back. Ok hairy how you doing heather. Yeah that's okay it happens. It's live radio. That's what makes it so great though it's exciting so you know what. I asked before before the call dropped. Is you know you claimed most of us were never taught how effectively express our preferences desires. Ordeal dealbreakers can you. Can you say more about this. Let's talk about this. Sure if pe- if we're taught to be good girl and we're definitely not taught to set limits and to tell the people that are dealbreaker star so we must learn that are so would and language. You wouldn't expect to know it right. You wouldn't expect to be fluent if nobody taught you my little. You've got to learn it yourself and you've gotta come from knowing yourself first being honest about how resentful you're stealing and what relationships what international getting met and then you slowly drilling start shifting your own boundary behavior to be in alignment with gig. 'cause really we're the only one to get that you know. Yeah yeah yeah for sure you know throughout the book you talk about the realization that you can that you always have choices as revolutionary for many of your clients. Can we talk about that sure. Because here's the thing. We boxed in psychologically because if your highest values to avoid conflict to have nobody ever be uncomfortable or mad at you for any reason then nothing else can be your highest value right. Well i think part of it is stepping back and like where am i. Biting my tongue. Where am i doing stuff. I don't wanna do simply to keep the peace. Aided this thirteen question quiz it's free. People take it at boundary quiz dot com. And it tells you you're so he might be a peacekeeper chameleon you might be a powerhouse and it's really understand the way that your own boundaries are showing up in their relationships and how you're showing up on them because that's what we need to be able to make those changes What does it mean to have healthy boundaries. And and how does that relate to embracing your true self having boundaries really means i mean the subtitle of the book has talking true in it. It means that you are the sign of what happens in your own life instead of being a bit player in your mind if you're not just disturb the show but the writer director and so it's rather than going along to get along. You are making decisions that are based on how you actually feel remembering that we can do this with kindness with grace with you know with love when appropriate with a little bit of heat when heated doesn't we're being mean by saying not things that we don't want to do because what we're really doing that if we get down to the we continue to do things we don't wanna do not only in a bitter martyr because you but the people imber life don't actually know you're giving them corrupted data about who you are. Yeah no i said earlier. So i'll be very candid here so my ex husband. My first ex husband asked me if i would pick he and my daughter up at the airport on thursday and i said yes even though. There's a lot of other things. I need to be doing but i just. I felt compelled to say yes you know. And so what's wrong with me terry. You from an earlier time. I believe we married. You felt compelled to say yes and it's really hard to change. Yeah nothing wrong with you. You're just trying not to make something being giver stressful. Because you a kid and you want it to be nice. Yeah or little bit afraid of rocking the boat. Yeah yeah and. I just want to be nice. You know i. I don't know why yes. And that's a good thing but like you said you need to have boundaries right right. And here's the thing is nice. Did something that you're sort of doing child. But here's the thing if you do it and later you're going to be like alan asked me. He's got some nerve. You might wanna rethink that. Yes you know what i mean. Yeah no he was just cheap. He wants to save on the uber. That's the real reason. I know him really well. Gosh i could tell you an inside joke. Better not okay. So so what are. What are the most common myths or misconceptions about boundaries. Just that you have to be mean is probably the biggest one that always has to be some big and drama that you Will push all the people in your life away that real love needs boundaries. That's a huge myth because the only healthy low is boundaries..

"Self record to do all of this stuff so in during this whole revolution where all that happened. All the rockstars kind of went. Oh shit you know. This is now the all that stuff was kinda handed to the people and so we're really lucky in that aspect to be living. Yeah we're not selling records the way people sold records before. But that's because there's more artists with the ability to produce their own records. So i actually. I even remember thirty years ago really thinking that that there is a huge upswing to that concept. Because it's going to reward hardworking more than you know the kind of the corporate machine which was more gang. We become more image. But you argue made you more creative and trying to get your name out there like instead of now you kinda know the staple like get on spotify facebook and instagram. A like back then. I mean yeah you have the cd but jeter figure out how to get that cd out there. Also figured out how to get your marketing out how to make that. Stand out from mike. I think the flip flop happen where you had bands that were producing a that. We're going on tour to promote album. And now you've got a albums to promote people coming. And seeing you play. And i and i think that obviously the that's a totally different business model but it's more beneficial to bans are side. And i think that the ultimately it's cyclical because artists for hundreds of years died in obscurity after their death is when people found nearby auto working holy. Shit this is this is. This is amazing stuff and we might we. I really think that there's gonna be a moment of that where we look back in like. I've actually terminated coal in the lab technician for years that there's actually going to be a fad of music that gets uncovered somebody grandpa dies and they go through and find an entire lifetime of work that they could release for years to come back fifteen poems that are solid gold and they've just been archive because they're sitting on a hard drive somewhere. Somebody's hobby you know that. That guy worked his his shitty job until he died and then twenty years after his dad. He's world famous. he's i mean they're putting digital holograms implanted. Get grammy's and shit with joe. Namath digital adequate that allows that to happen movies Real revitalize music tv shows revitalize music music will revitalize music like all. This stuff will come about and just kind of like you said have this cyclical movement life back in the day. You're like wow. That didn't really take off but now it almost seems ahead of its time you know and it's like that's actually taking off now. So the new singles vagabond yes. When did that come out on earth day own. Second that's awesome. Yeah and we have a music video that go on with it sweet. That's out now as out. Find it on youtube son. This all the links. Give us an explanation of vagabond. What he has to you so it is my train hopping song the lifestyle of living a vagabond hopping from downtown Like i was talking about earlier. How we began. Some of our friendship was i. I hopped a gop trees the country and that inspired the sign. That is my that is what inspired this and yes not that restlessness that failing that restlessness have meaning to go not being able to stay in one place for too long and i don't know thinking about this like the blue collar this trying to make a living being enslaved by the false idea. Freedom there's a there's a lot of there's a lot of ideas behind the song and decide means a lot to me. I think he gets lost to which she says. Hopping trains you know. She's not like you know. Like oh my trip to europe and i had a little pass that got me on on traveled abroad that link writing onto the on freight trains. And it's there's there's an amount of risk and sketching us here and uncomfortable. There's rain. I've read a lot of trains across this country. But i was in a seat and she was not and she down and they ended up in florida. And like you know. They stayed with me and i was like. Oh let's you know. I got a nice place. Let's go out to eat. Like was playing all the time down there and we had a bunch of fine. Look like they're her face was like their faces. Were chatting. they wrote across the goddamn country on a freight train. It still don't know if you've ever been in the south but like the sun is enough if you're if you're sitting drinking iced tea on your power it's enough let alone sitting on a metal train going through the south so by the time they got to me. They're they're ashes. Were pretty kick. And then i was like i was like you know what dude i'll just if you want like i'll buy you guys. I think i offered to buy amtrak ticket to get to whatever. Just come on. Get on get in the train. You did it. They're like no was the artist. It was the journey art fence. So i of driving. I was in the keys and i ended up driving to miami like past the amtrak station to just like a the tracks which just like in shithole miami failure. And i'm like okay cole. Good luck how did you know.

"Least for that kind of stuff and people are just so happy to be like well. I'll give you a fifty dollars in a cheeseburger you'll give captured. I think of how many dangerous were especially a young hungry musician. Like tool showered us all about donating some time to a cause and being part of a community and doing something. I am about that. Just everything situational gut. Though i think when you're taking taken advantage of innocent situation like you know kind of what you're saying like why am i paying you if you're doing it for your fun and you're like well i'm also doing it for a living you know. And there's a lot of people out there that also do what they love and do their job to. If i like the bar owner and i like the place and i've got some time and i like playing out and there's a labor of love there. I'll go and play somewhere for super cheap if it's if it's apropos but if i show up to a place and you know and they're paying me one hundred dollars and i was in the restaurant industry. I know they brought in iran that night. It's like come on. You know. I'm not maybe it right. Yeah different venues with different amounts of appreciation for sure. I've heard yet by owner to even like some owners. Don't appreciate you know the art or having the are in their venue or building compared to some owners and and and that's another huge part of the pirate. There is people sit there and go. Oh well you're making this wage for showing up playing barefooted on my stage and enjoying yourself and it's like well yeah but you know. I'm also practicing. I'm right look at all and i'm dealing with your and many of people who already drunk by master. I've had years where. I've spent a couple hundred hours a year just chasing down my money. A thing is people see you for two hours. Think they're paying you for that to our right. And then they're like us in the mail. And i go down there the phone call. I gotta do it twice in a week and spent four hours this week on your down for years to make that two hours. The hours the money. I made it man. Yeah yeah and i think a lot of people find it is but i mean there's also silver lining to of you are doing what you love. You know. you're not behind a fryer you in some job that you just loathe getting up in the morning and doing and you're trying to win a rounding up totally jobs should be like. Why is that. Even your judges should be doing what should be your job. You love working with kids making their lives. Better teaching them. And you're a teacher and you're doing what you love absolutely should be getting paid. Everybody should be doing what they love. I don't think that's a good excuse. Like oh you know. Everybody should be passionate about what they're doing but to be fair. I have met some who love taking advantage musician. Bela taking on a hippie. You have that passion on what you wanna do. But then like. I don't know my ten years of playing music or ten plus years you know at the end of every year looking at how much money i've made in like You on other things in life like a house or family and like things that cost a lot of money. It's been like this thing in the back of my head going back and forth like i could find a job. That sucks kind of that. I don't want to do. But i dropped your happiness level a little bit but afford other things that i would also make me happy. Yeah so it's like the. It's all like checks and balances much. Mafia life is material. How much exactly. I think a lot of times know musicians kind of their own worst enemy with that too though. Like if you if you wanted to start a business selling ice cream you'd stop the by shopping right a menu and come up with a business plan and you know you did have to have some upfront investment. And you know you'd have to structure out your first year in your second year. You know if you're going to open a place like that. The first year is probably seventy eighty ninety hour weeks if you actually did that shit with a band. You're probably going to see a return on investment that similar to any you know startup blue-collar business you know and i think that that's one of the things that musicians skip the cart before the horse because they they romanticize it in this way of like wells and doing what i love and i'm just going to get there on how it is there. I hear that. Like if i'm just good enough someone else with all of that work in resources already done is gonna come along and see me and just hand this thing to me and i think it creates this idea that you're either the pop star. Who made it bolt of lightning or your the starving artist. And i think that there's a huge area in between that his blue boiler you could make fifty to one hundred thousand dollars a year and probably eventually have a mortgage and a house in a family. But if you're not. I mean you're probably not doing it on five hours a week. You know what i mean. And that's what a lot of people put into their to. Their music is five five six hours a week and so it is a hobby And then there's nothing wrong with being a hobby. That's also job to somewhere on a weekend or yeah. Yeah if you're putting in five hours a week to be playing fifty dollar gigs. I'm right here in your mouth and the hour a night a practice or two hours a week. Let's say it adds up for sure. Yeah i think putting all that stuff in perspective is really key to kind of you know being successful as a musician it is and it's also kind of like i. Kind of the vein. You're going down of leg. It's also a challenge to value yourself as you get better as you can say. Hey cole i like your venue. But i think i'm worth one hundred fifty dollars instead of one hundred dollars or something you know what i mean really asking for what you're worth instead of saying dropping it well. At least i'll get the exposure no wins when that's enough. No when you have gotten that enough and you can do your own hosur exact. And i think it all. It's all the time. Yeah we've done that. We've out underbid us when we're like that was not worth our time complete but then but then we know like saying no to that one. That's situation now. Or i know to be charged a little more no. Yeah exactly that idea of blue blue-collar success oh musicians that's a relatively new thing to thirty years ago you didn't really have. You can put forty hours a week until your music but it was pretty much just writing and practicing man. You know because you didn't have the the tools to self market to produce to.

Is it true that the man from florida is a thing when you google is. There's a some characteristics it's actually. It's more prevalent than you. Now something daily if you live their daily daily is probably like the news is flooded young man just a man which is funny because down there like if you go down there. They're all like oh you're montana. You guys right cowboys. Yeah counting union electrician trinity and their and their way off because here and people were like. Oh florida i hear you guys like live in the rafters at walmart like yeah. You're exactly right so i moved here. I'm dan would dan. What would yeah. What's your favorite color. You're just escaped me. Maybe like aquamarine aloe. Mary wasn't cool. Superhero name to and marine drummers drummers through how many how many thorns are in colon the thorns there are seven of us holy cow missing. Adam burke is seven recently. Because i thought i read six somewhere. There are seven that was last week. I'm next month. Formed around and we create another. Yeah so matt pal palm on the saxophone. Ice affection at a alex pat on the drums and the annenberg on auxiliary percussion sweet. You guys. I've been playing with since the early nineties really no joke. I've known since i was a kid i was hanging out with alex fourth green. So did you know you were joining this. That they were part of it. Okay that's awesome all right so that was twenty sixteen kind of i mean obviously barring you kind of all when you guys met and kind of formulated the idea twenty sixteen we actually went through. Some tribulations is all bands. Yeah i we lost members so for the last couple of years have been the last couple of years of growing pains and grind pain head of bringing new people in who necessarily didn't stick around so the biggest challenge is getting him to stay or like mostly just like i don't know yeah just like the songs easy but like a lot of stylistically. Yes so this again in his proficiency at his instrument made it easier but like a lot of times. We're spending months bringing each new person brought into the band up to speed on the old song. So we're just sitting there kind of like along that turnover for you must be hard. Because you're trying to backtrack to retrain them august and send him writing new music getting the new person up to speed just good and i've also been writing all this stuff out for you guys to so when the fourth guitar player comes along and you can just handle favor so you the only music now he does to you to do your I don't necessarily write it out. I just we all learned by lot. Gotcha don't have as much music theory knowledge. Noggin is these to here. What about you call. Do you write news writer. I was trained on the piano. And i did learn how to write music. I don't do that with my song. South very out of practice with that. I'm sure i could relearn it. But yet no i just write the structure of the songs and and then we everybody frights there on parts those. Yeah that's cool. It's a fun process. Is everybody in bozeman there seven. They're just not in your living room. Fair fair yeah. It's too early coming you. Does it make one. Song is all seven colliding or is it to of you be like here. It is and then it was picked up. I i usually write the song. I have a basic structure of the melody and the song and the lyrics announcing it. And that i bring the song to the band and then we work out sin certain parts and working on trying to get it more like maybe like jazz colin i. We'll get together around the skeleton so we can have something. That dan and matt the horn players can write a piece too. But we haven't had a lot of time to really like bright new musically kill was on. We've gotten this final formation together. We finally complete. We're we're completing field challenge to write when you have a large band is an especially if it's changing personnel here and there and things like that Which ten which tends to be a phenomenon that you're experiencing when it's kind of an artist surrounded by bama's to ban that kind of formed because it's cold. It's cold fan. So i think you know every every songwriting force whether it's single order do or or a ban has to kind of come across and figure out its process and streamline that process and i think we're kind of in the process of figuring out so you feel like cheese kind of where the the original ideas have come from right now and you guys take the lyrics or whatever you right and then kind of elaborate on that per se warm. It's banned. yeah that's kind of the idea. I mean we all. I mean i have my own projects i you know. He's got other projects. We all have other stuff. We do right and i write a ton of original music for not for this band. That's not my man on the side. I just i have. I mean this would have been doing for a living for a long time. And i've got my own albums side projects you have well. Currently i just moved back at the right when i moved back. Run virus hit. So it's been there's been a little bit of limbo land mostly because of timing and on top of coronavirus stuff. But i have a ton of original material to you know. And it's just it's nice to have a partition effect. It's kind of one of the things i like. The most about playing in this band is not being in charge of all the opening up with all the content. Like i've been doing just a and other people songs and that's a that's a fun thing. Yeah not seeing. And that's what i'm trying to look for right now. Is i play keyboard back there. I got a guy that he's like. Well you wanna come play key sometime. Let me know i just. I don't wanna think about it because i'm doing this. I got other things going. I just wanna show up and play. Like i just want that our responsibility of creating right now so i was. He'll for twelve years there. I was doing like two hundred. Two hundred fifty shows a year minimum. All carrying everything you know so so i think part of that too. I mean. it's definitely what i love. A part of that is also being able to do. What about.

And i was almost a train. Ride away where those the second that tarkwa because after the first one she was like you want to be in the band. And i'm like kinda three thousand miles like remote qatar. It's gonna move back but she was like. Yeah i know. And i was more like five or six okay. So she found similar guy. So did you come back just to be in the band. What's that story. Hello now that. I don't know why i came back. Are you originally from here. I am yeah okay out. Jeez that's why. When i come back i already kind of get thrown into situations with all the musicians because i know everybody so somehow i managed to hold onto knowing everybody. I mean it's a it's a small community but it's a good community a lot of good people willing to tighten it and it's funny you talk about the hoffbrau open mic. Yeah plano's fifteen you know. I was my shadow. Was you know. Yeah yeah that was like everybody's for show. I was telling my first gig there like blake severely underage ch down. Don't get drunk. Don't blow this. You know it's like yeah. Okay whatever okay. Well on even get a night to. You're going to run into somebody there in that kind of tight knit community that. I think that you know you're a part of whether it be. You know a friend whether it be a musician there whether it be kind of like somebody who's been doing that since like the mid nineties that's kind of a huge part of it like i came back to town and like all all the kids that i knew in the ninety s and the early two thousands that we're playing the open my aches and just kind of drifting around playing music. They're all a boseman freaking rockstars. Now every they've all they've all kind of found their their place and now they're like of more of these elder statesman of that whole thing and now there's like there's different kinds of lanes of people that are writing from all that stuff in it all got started in that little kind of local local amateur scene which huge for musicians around here huge absolutely great exposure. To great connections great marketing list and there's moments of brilliance that. I just don't think happened anywhere else. I've seen some amazing acts like my favorite bands. See him in a stadium or something in his band. You wanted to see your whole freaking life. Those are some of my favorite experiences in life but also the other fifty percent of my favorite experiences. Musically are these weird no-name moments that i saw in a local dive. That was just somebody passing through somewhere. I still have that. I remember vividly. That i don't even know the guy that rocks ohio other names that i still remember just being my whole shared. That was good. You know it's definitely a good place to like suck as well as fair come. Why do you say that You know we didn't know all the chords necessarily telling somebody like this is of course the song she's people are more open to i. Guess just letting you say. Experience level said anything from like really talented people to like. First time things and like people. I it was like a good foothold to star salvage. I've noticed that members like doing this kind of thing with people in bozeman montana. I feel that a lot like when you guys come here and just thorough interview. It's very lax and it's very just like oh like i messed up. Let me try one more time. And everybody's just like. Oh yeah you're good for you know what i mean. It's just like everybody's everybody's just you know we know where we're at and we know that it's on that kind of playing field so that's awesome.
