That's so cool like these people know our culture so much that they they bought that shit. The united states had a flown over there. Whether it's clothing cars whatever tattoos you know whatever whatever was they flew all that shit to their country and had had it right there. They had like little mini as right there. The only difference that they didn't have that we had because for them. It was more like a sport was like friendly competition. They didn't have people jacket for the dayton's they'd have the cops. You know fucking with them because a low writers basically an illegal car right the car. The the wheels are too small for the suspension everything about the unsafe storage of batteries in the trunk. There's like three violations just pulling the interesting yeah so you know back in the nineties of cops to always fuck with us. It was like the thing. Do you know like you saw copulate. All new car could get told. I might have a warrant. Could go to you know could go to the county jail the night or whatever but they have to deal with none of that shit you know for them is a sake. It was cool. You know they could just build cars and and basically you know driving around play with them all day and nobody to fuck with them right for them. It was a people. Stop in the street or wall fucking cargo by here. Like mothers wonder where he lives. You know deaf who might have some rims. I need for my car. Some shit like that ache. I've gotten fall would be far before car. You know nashes. You know little bit stressful. You know with these going to do you know. Yeah so you know the cops looking taking impounding. Your car should like that like they don't to deal with none of that so it's kind of like they get to do it all but in a safe way you know. They don't have the but to me. I like i like it here. You know i'd like to. I'd like that little excitement. That stress and you know the drennan ryan but has been appointed. Live where you start to feel like. I got a little too much success to really be in the hood or around the shit that you know you really built a name for yourself on being around like is. Is there ever that separation for you. Because sometimes we'll be doing video content where we just pull up to the projects pull up to some rappers hood. Whatever and to me. I love that feeling of just being accepted in that environment and being able to document this shit knowing that was very hard for most people that get into this environment But then at the same time sometimes i think like i'm taking a little bit more risk than maybe would be wise to at times when i realised somebody got shot on at that store where i was standing a week later. Some shit like that. Yeah i mean back in the day. The most of the photos that i was getting were were people always kicking with right so i was just there. You know we're all there. And i just happened to be taking pictures now like you know some people know me and stuff you know like you said but now if i'm going to do some photos or something like that i'm i'm being invited you know so it's like i'm a guest you know in people are cool. You know as long as you're respectful and you're you know you're not trying to ask some certain type of way you know you. You know how to navigate through all that you know so for me is is pretty much the same. I don't think i'm that successful to where people like people who want to be a threat to me you know. I don't have anything to really offer them. I my success is that i've been seen nor my photos have been seen lake a millionaire walking around or you know on instagram. With twenty grand man. Like phone is shit like that does not mean you know i just get pay my bills and do my thing and so whenever i see people out there you know i go everywhere by myself pretty much right and and i feel comfortable like that. You know. I don't. I didn't put it to where i need to roll around with people or or you know maybe a you know i could be in some type of danger where i have to have somebody with me or anything. I never thought we always roll like that. Like you know. Even with cypress hill we used to go everywhere you know. Every time we go to new city we just rolled out. Go to the mall go kick it. Kick it with people you know. We're like friendly with everybody so we never had that like well. We sold this many record so we got to act like this and you know. Just a weird. There's like a thin line. You can cross but once you cross that you know you're stuck on that side. Yeah and none of us ever really crossed that line so you as a photographer in terms of you know obviously if you get paid to shoot something and you're getting paid to shoot something but in terms of the type of photography that really makes you happy. What are your favorite things if you had you know next saturday free and you're gonna go shoot something. What would be the thing that would bring you the most personal happiness to shoot. I mean pretty much anything that you can get paid for. You know all the stuff that i shoot that. I never got paid for that. That i don't make money on. Is like the the stuff that i love. To shoot you. Know the car culture the la kosher. The you know the tattoo stuff you know. That's all the stuff that i love to shoot that you can't really make money off of right. It's the music and the celebrities in the brands. That's where you get the money. If anything people will see your style of photos and be like. I want that style for my brand. But you can't make somebody's brand. Looked like that. You know those pictures were taken of a moment and it wasn't for a reason or purpose so you're never gonna get that again in a brand or you know like i. I've seen people go. They look through my patients. Go want my album cover like that. But it's like you don't look like that and you're not that you know they'll say i'll do something nice for you don't trip i got you but you know. I can't tell them like you know you'll never be that guy you know don't even trip so i just go. Yeah we you know. We'll hook it up. And then i you know i take good enough pictures of them to where they're like. You know you did your thing you know. But they see other pitches. And i wanna be that guy right. You know. it's like you're not that guy. Photography is just. I mean so much photography in general in particular the stuff that i see from you and stuff that people love so much that it's just very much documentation of real people doing real things like that's the thing that you can't really like so much it's really is access like i have some friends. who've like had certain moments in time where they're photography was getting attention and stuff so much of that time when i would look at it from technical standpoint it was very basic but they were in an environment where capturing and saying things you know like just seeing shit. The people don't get a chance to see and that's so much of what you know. There's only so much that somebody gives a fuck about seeing a photograph. This well done. There's only so many people that are really gonna be able to appreciate that but having access and being around people that you know yeah for me. I see that and.

Tensions simmer over Northern Cyprus' plan to reopen Varosha
"In nineteen seventy, four intervention by Turkish military forces after Greek inspired coup in Cyprus the famous Borussia Resort region was shut down over one hundred hotels with a bed capacity of ten thousand has been empty. No forty six years United Nations Security Council resolution states that the ghost. Count Ghost town. Can only be resettled by its original inhabitants. But now the Turkish. Separate Prime Minister has announced that the beaches there will open today causing much consternation from Cyprus and Greece one, hundred Lucinda Smith. The eastern will correspondent for the Times joins me now Hannah. Thanks thanks for coming on. Can you remind us of the events leading up to the closing of the region? Show well, of course, Cyprus in Nineteen, seventy, four, a war broke out but really the tensions on the been going on for more than a decade already between the two communities. The Greek speaking community on the Turkish speaking community. Now, in nineteen seventy four, what happened was that backed by Greece the Greek Cypriots tend to do. In response to that the Turkish army INVADED IN THE NORTH And progress down to the South and actually the line that they take. Shami was planning to progress to stops just north of Rocha. Rocha shouldn't have been part of the part of the territory take. Mohtashami. But they did in fact, take it. Well, it didn't do was opening up again to the public. They kept originally kind of bargaining chip hyping to sort of extract some concessions from the Greek separate side using this kind of faulting chip of Rocha. But she what's happened is that for forty six years, it's remained behind barbed wire, its military zone, the only people who are allowed. That are Turkish military personnel I'm very occasionally U. N. personnel now. On the did kind few images that we've seen coming from. This is really kind of striking quite eerie. Once, very, very lavish resort place where people like Elizabeth Taylor and severe ran went on holiday. Now just completely crumbling to dust. So what are the latest developments? So actually totta are the north separate prime minister announced. August. That the Russia was going to be redeveloped and reopened. Now this is something entirely near this is who come up cyclically disgust every so often. And so in a way. You know again it's you know one of these ideas and they'll never come to fruition. But as you said on Tuesday nights totta made the announcement while he was nine crowd that is going to be open today, not the whole town, just the beachfront But the really significant thing about this is that that was just five days away from the presidential elections in no Cypress scheduled to be held on Sunday Ersan Tatars candidate in those elections and I think the really interesting thing you mentioned that it's this announcements is met with a huge amount of opposition from. A Greek Cypriots and from Greece is also met with quad loss of opposition from Turkey separates as well It says caused the government of North. Cyprus a coalition government collapsed to one junior partner said it was pulling out that coalition and so her fide by this kind of sudden announcement and submit Prank and I think you know lots of people that know Cypress particularly Essen Tatas political opponents thing. But he's really using this as a kind of political stunt to give him the edge in Sunday's elections but I mean it's illegal isn't it? How does Turkey justify it? It. Is Legal Yeah as you said, according to the UN if anyone's going to be resettled in Russia, they have to be the original residents, most of whom were Greek separates. Now thought present factors has recognized the ship of the proper does the commission up. To, look into how the original owners of properties in brochure could be compensated Most of those people wanted some kind of compensation. Some wanted their properties back. But yeah. The fact is you know if any redevelopment of that town is going take place, there's this two major issues in all Cyprus firstly is the town the for forty six years has just been crumbling into the ground. It's GonNa take music. You're going to have to be kind of a demolished and reconstructed which might work, and secondly that is an she is going to cost Cyprus huge amounts of money if they want to do this in the kind of legal and proper way, and let's not forget the no. Cypress's is a country this only recognized by Ankara, it's pretty widely embargoed eighty four. For its economic survival is much propped up by Ankara saying it's places kind of ready access to to the funds needed to do something like this. So I think the question amongst. People position or is this just an election stunt? Is The beach just going to be open for feed is a member. She was just going to be closing lucky walls before a finally Hannah. How this feed into Turkeys dispute with European Union members Cypress and Greece territorial rights in the eastern Mediterranean. Yes sure I mean I think it's coincidence that is nouncement was made in Ankara. The obviously, no cypresses almost entirely dependent on anchor for it survivor. Essen Tatars. I said is the is kind of anchors favored consciousness elections, but we'll see this is why dispute going on in Syria and Cyprus and in the eastern Mediterranean more broadly which she the tickets very much. The House of it's about the converged UNSEE gas. It's about maritime sovereign say on that those people down over the past few weeks rather still not been resolved and I. Think this is hugely emotional for for separates greek-cypriots particularly, and it's just another thing I. think no guide to sort of. Prolong this arguments this maritime arguments niece.
Treasures Looted in War
"So. Can you tell me what cultural heritage is and why it's important? Well. Cultural Heritage is essentially what represents the shared common history that a group of people might have and it can be something very specific as pertaining to single group of people a country, a region, or it could be a worldwide issue. My name is allows Lauzon I may professor of Middle East history not apology at Shawnee State University in Ohio. Cultural artifact top caught of your heritage. So if we're thinking of post cultural heritage, you're thinking of the remains left by ancient peoples, civilizations et Cetera, and these can be archaeological sites, archaeological monuments, and also artifacts left behind an if I can be something as simple as a stone tool, a sickle, a mortar and pestle that's used to produce food to something extremely elaborate, intricate and very, very beautiful. So, how big of a problem is the looting of art and Cultural Heritage of cultural artifacts. Looting is a huge problem, but it's also important to point that right away that it's not a new problem, it's a problem as all this human history itself. As long as we have had tombs, we've had tomb raiders as long as there have been civilizations. You know they're spent an army waiting on the next hill to come in and plunder them. We've seen throughout history that culture has always been a weapon of war. I Am Test Davis, and I'm executive director of the antiquated coalition and not for profit organization in Washington who. Starts in places like war-torn Cambodia, war-torn Cypress, or torn Iraq, or Yemen, or Libya the list goes on and on. And this is funding conflict. It is funding terrorism and it certainly funding crime around the world, which is why everyone should care about it. Regardless of whether they're interested in culture arts for preservation. One. Problem that everyone has faced who's working in this area as that so many view this as a white collar victimless crime, and that's if they've you at a crime at all, that's not the case it might end up a white collar crime at the end, but it doesn't start that way and these are cultural objects and they really run the gamut from those fatter looted from archaeological sites or. From museums or other collections and war zones, and then trafficked by armed groups either to finance the hostilities or sometimes by individuals to exploit them for personal gain from the perspective of an archaeologist, a historian I, you know when artifacts removed from its context we lose priceless history that were never going to get back again many of these are sacred objects that were never meant to be bought and sold. They are pieces that were you know hacked off of a Hindu temple or Buddha shrine they're not meant to be commodities and many of sacred places there still sacred places. And when object is taken from them it's as if it's destroyed because you know that villager in that village never going to see it again. And you know it matters a great deal to these communities. When an artifact is improperly removed from its resting place, the damage can't be undone. The losses are devastating. So what's driving the looting? Areas like the Middle East are extremely rich in cultural heritage, every Syrian lives either on top of large logical site right next door to knock logical side or within a stones throw of an archaeological site. Now you put stress you put a conflict you put a situation where people lose their livelihoods and they will turn to looting and so much in fact of the looting that we see today in conflict countries like Syria likely. Be Like Yemen is very much associated with what we referred to a subsistence looting people will turn to loot in order to survive to make ends meet to try and find additional source of income, and suddenly there is a long established history as well of criminal elements, Mafias, gangs, or corrupt officials in many of these countries. So you find that added factory making looting lucrative, but also highly destructive as we see when it's completely uncontrolled.

Serbia-Kosovo talks 'back on track
"Now Serbia has refused to recognize Kosovo's statehood since Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in two thousand and eight, nearly a decade after a very bloody war dialogue between Belgrade and Prishtina began in two thousand eleven, producing some thirty agreements most of them, though a not observed, but after talks broke down a couple of years ago, the parties are communicating again with both the EU and the US weighing in well for more I'm joined by James, Kara Lindsay who's visiting professor at the NFC and author of the politics of recognition and engagement, e you, member-state relations with Kosovo James Let's begin with the US involvement. Where do we stand with this? Well. There was a lot of excitement that the united. States was getting involved in this process a couple of years ago. There was a sense Washington really wants it's gets are. Big International Agreement. This was going to be one of trump's moments of glory. That was going to get reelected. And so there was a lot of activity that was going on. By the United States role, the separate from the e U process switch continuing as you've noted since two thousand eleven. But recently it's basically collapsed in this collapse for number of reasons one because they would charges brought against the presidents of Kosovo. For War Crimes but also I think that we just up against the clock in the United States Rick. Grenell the US ambassador to Germany, who was handling this? It looks like he's going to be very involved in trump's reelection campaign, and as we know it less than four months to go before the US election. I, think the latest sellings way hand over to Europe is saying look I've. Got To be dealing with now, so the ball is very very certainly back in the European court now and there was a video summit on Friday chaired by the the the Cherry double-act Merckel macron. What what transpired? The the problem as Well. There's a whole range of problems. As again as you noted as being a range of agreements have been put in place over the past, a number of years most which haven't really been observed, but there's also been deep divisions within the European Union about what they want. Now there's been a number of proposals being coming forward a nice been suggestions that the President Sukasto vote and Serbia. Actually at one point very close to a deal, but controversially that would include some so the territorial swap and we know that Germany in actual fact Britain as well a very very opposed to this. The. Americans on the other hand seem to be open to the idea although they seem to be a rowing buckle now now. I'm so the probably essentially have is that we need a big picture secondments here and the Europeans have been pressing so small normalization agreements, which is all very well and good boots. As I'm saying I worked Cypress pathetic years, and these small agreements, a justice difficult to get into place, and even more typical in many ways to implement than actually spending time focusing on a big picture final deal, and so I think this is the real question about half now. Is it going to be back to try to get these piecemeal agreements that don't really work or all week in the focus on the big picture? Final settlements. Will really put this issue behind both Kosovo. and Serbia and of course that question becomes very urgent, because it looks as if the leaders of Serbia in Kosovo will meet face to face in Brussels later this week. Yes I'm I mean to be honest with you? I don't think anyone's really expecting that. We can see any big breakthroughs now. and I again. I'm I'm very very skeptical that you're really even knows what it wants. the IT could be a return to these sort of. These small bitsy talks which you don't get me wrong. These are important things that needs to be doubts which will make long foot for people in costumes survey much better. But like a Lotta people a my view is the you sold. If they were the big picture deal, anyway and so what you're doing is many ways wasting time on energy block treasurer on all these trying to get these small agreements, which in the end don't really get implemented because that fundamental big picture agreement so. I I think the big problem here is that it's it's. Europe's coming at the wrong way. I mean Europe officials as saying that resolution is the only way that Serbia and Kosovo seek to become members of the EU. Do you think that that's a big enough incentive? Well. I mean I. Get sent certainly in Kosovo there is. A growing realization something needs to be done so often. Votes Clayton dependency. The was that we go from. There was a we've got. The Americans behind US rebuilt the British the French recalled Germans. They're going to go out and tell. The world recognized Kosovo and in the first few years. That seems to be what was happening and we got to a point where about one, hundred ten or hundred thirteen of the one hundred ninety three members of the UN recognized. Kosovo But Russia and China refuse to recognize it, so that prevents full you and membership, but what we've seen in the past couple of years is Serbia's lobbied countries to withdraw that recognition of Kosovo is now recognized about ninety seven countries so I think in Prishtina this realization if we want to join the UN if we want to be a normal, fully accepted country on the world stage, we've got to reach a final deal with Belgrade. What is it that we? We can offer Belgrade. The Belgrade might be willing to accept. The trump is what it sink. President Sanctuary was willing to offer Belgrade's. The German said No. We're not willing to allow it to go that far because if you stop changing borders between Serbian, Kosovo. Even if this is consensual, you'll not problems north Macedonia and Bosnia so we we have a fundamental problem here of how we're going to deal with something that frankly speaking could be dealt with sally easily. If, there was sort of coincidence abuse amongst the Americans, the Europeans, subs and the Kosovo Albanians James. Thank you very much? Indeed, that's James Collins.

Why Deadhead Logs Are So Rare and Valuable (w/ Kevin OConnor) and Why Traveling Makes You Tired
"When you think about buried treasure. You probably don't think about trees ends lumber and yet dead logs are sought after because they could make you rich if you're willing to risk your life for them today to share the story is Kevin O'Connor who set of the Emmy me winning home improvement series this old house. He just wrapped the first season of his new podcast clear story which sheds light on the surprising stories behind our homes and today Kevin joins us with a brief history of dead head logs. Starting with what happened when European colonists I arrived in America hundreds of years ago when when the colonists I got here they were looking for resources and there were abundant resources. It was Virgin growth forest here in this continent Literally a billion acres of this continent of this country covered in trees and for better for worse we harvested them pretty aggressively throughout the seventeen and eighteen hundreds And in the process we took some magnificent supplies eastern white pines signs that were two hundred feet tall straight as an arrow that had been growing for one hundred years and were forty feet around we harvested them in mass those northern northern forests of Minnesota that we ship down the Great Lakes. We clear cut him. We cleaned MINNESOTA. We clear. Cut Him in Maine New Hampshire and in that process because of the era we would cut the trees down in the winter when the ground was frozen and then we get an ox to pull them across a C and snowy paths. Because how else would you move them through the mud and dirt did it. When the ground was slippery yes stack them up on the banks of rivers which were frozen but when the spring came and the snow melted and the rivers rose? You could float the logs from MINNESOTA DOWN TO CHICAGO OR FROM MAINE DOWN TO BOSTON and float him right up to the mills which were along rivers. You'd bring him in chop them up. And it was the heyday of timbering and logging in this this country. And while millions of these things made it from the forest to the mills thousands or hundreds of thousands got stuck along the way and they went to the bottom of Rivers rivers and is a weird thing. That happens when a piece of wood. Big Tree full-size goes to the bottom of a river. It is preserved like like I don't know what in from out of the died a frog and formaldehyde for science there preserved perfectly and they sit there for hundreds of years and now with the virgin forests. All gone all all this Beautiful slow growth timber all gone. There's only one place to get. It gets at the bottom of rivers and their guys who put on snorkel gear scuba gear and they will dive down into black murky rivers. They will literally list risk their lives and we talked to guys who get pinned under logs that way hundreds of pounds or rushed to the hospital because they got bit by poisonous trying to get this stuff but when they get it it's treasure they bring it up and it's beautiful and it could be five hundred or a thousand or two thousand years old and when you slice into it you're the first person to ever use it and see it and it's remarkable so it's rare it's coveted did and if you can find it you can sell it for a whole bunch of Dow because people really really want. Okay so what makes this stuff. So valuable depends on who you ask. I think if you talked to norm Abram who was our master carpenter on a shell legendary carpenter He will tell you it was the beautiful all in unique color of it and also the stability you know if the tree grew for five hundred years in the forest it grew very slowly slowly and we know that means that the rings are closer together which means the rain is tighter and that gives the woods stability and it's very difficult today because things go very fast and we force it and we farm it so he will tell you. It's that unique color the beauty as well as stability. I would argue with them a little a bit. Those things certainly are incredibly important but I think today the most important thing is it has story if you can sit there in your house talking to a guest or friend or even if you had to sell the idea to your spouse and you can point to this thing and say that lumber. I was here when Christopher Columbus showed up it went to the bottom of a river at the heyday of the logging industry. In this country it was was pulled up by a crazy guy a scuba tank and then we sliced through the Cyprus and Carter all the way up here to put it in the floor of this house you got yourself a story and you got yourself just a an invaluable thing. That's what our houses are there. Things that make us feel comfortable. They are the things that we like to show off. There are things that we like to share in that it it just it checks all the boxes right. You're making me really want one. Don't you want one. I could put you into a thousand year old piece of Cypress for eighty bucks a board foot. I'll get back to you on that. That would again. That was Kevin O'Connor his new podcast is called clear story and all ten episodes of the first season are available for you to listen to right now. Find Clear history wherever you listen to podcasts or look for Lincoln. Today's show notes. We got a listener question from Samuel in London. Who Asks? WHAT DO I get super tired after extremely only long car trips or train writes most of the time? I'm just sitting down doing nothing or sleeping but I still always become super tired. Can you please explain. Why Great Question Samuel L. as someone who falls asleep almost immediately on any long trip I definitely know where you're coming from? Samuel there are a lot of elements at play when you travel the can add up to that that sleepy feeling the biggest though is boredom. I mean whether you're in a plane train or automobile. There's not a whole lot to keep you occupied on a long trip. A study study in two thousand seventeen found that the same part of the brain. That's responsible for motivation can also produce sleep so when there's nothing particularly motivating around. We tend to get sleepy. Maybe that part of the brain is called the nucleus accumbens and it's packed with receptors for tiredness triggering molecule called a denizen both caffeine and motivating stimuli stimuli can interfere with these receptors. And keep you from getting sleepy but without either of those. It's a one-way ticket to snooze. Ville studies have also found that the gentle vibrations nations of a vehicle or also. Really good lulling us to sleep. Although scientists aren't really sure why a twenty eighteen study from Australia had people drive in a virtual oh simulator that was set up on a vibration platform. It only took fifteen minutes on a low vibration for the participants to show signs of drowsiness and by thirty minutes in staying alert took significant effort when it comes to staying awake on route the relaxing Of the engine isn't doing you any favors. And of course they're all the little things things on traveled as you probably wake up earlier than normal eat less than nourishing food generally send your normal routines out of whack. You also may be dehydrated whether from recirculated air in a plane or just forgetting to drink water in general and studies suggest that can make you sluggish. So what should you do about it. Honestly take a nap up. But if you'd rather stay alert here are a few things to try. Talk to your travel buddies to keep your mind. Active drink caffeine too full your identity and receptors. Just make sure sure to follow it with lots and lots of water and try your best to eat healthy meals so you don't have a food coma or sugar crash to make things even worse.

"Implant the week mark comes back to me in thought pattern and fact from last week's discussion about the ten landscaping secrets or best ideas to consider consider and number seven on. That list was the use of color now. Color in flowers beat annuals perennials or or flooring crabs and spring and so on is is all part of it however the other day with this thought somewhat fresh in mind I turned a corner in a distant place that I rarely go by and and there was gold now not gold. You can pocket but gold in three plants that were back on the corner of a property property. And as best I could tell hustling on by the the corner that they were in was a southwest corner they would get all of the morning sun afternoon afternoon sun into evening and then they were backed up by some gray deciduous tree great deciduous trees and talk about pulling the eye to to a point of interest. Gold is is a little strong but it's it's a really really was was I should say a light green chartreuse that really stood out in on a winter day Halfway raining at that point in time and I just thought in terms of color I used to be afraid of using color and that day is long gone. I'm always careful now. That big plant that I saw probably was. It's what's called a so war or Japanese false Cyprus The False Cypress resembles the Arbor Vita Group. They're very different and different different habits in growth and so on and there are many many many of them but this one or the three probably were that kind now for those of you who are interested in adding adding some bright yellow like that. Hang on and your your pencil. It's came sippers. C. H. A. M. A. E. C. You y P. A. R. I S. and then among the whole who shall I say the whole group of them that this one is is the called Piscivora Sifra S. I F. E. R. A.. Now I didn't nor am I probably capability more of per se absolutely identifying the the plant. But I don't know of anything anymore gold that I hadn't thought about it in a long time. These plants would have been in place. I'm going to judge in the ten in plus year area and they will grow to between fifteen and twenty feet tall. So it's not something you put next to the house or next to the walkway or whatever. it goes out back but it really sparkled on a day like that and January in Ohio has a lot of those days so when it comes to that. It's it's a bright yellow. I'm I have mentioned in our color group. The variegated Rhododendron which is green and cream There are several Rhododendrons in there and and all the rest of the leaves are at best a green Sometimes when Nicole days they fall right up like a big cigar but at the same time they add color art and then there are other things. I mentioned the green of the bark. And it's it's it's settled but at the same time it's very decidedly mid green on the big shrub curious. Those are all things that you can add to a winter day to glance at out of given window or whatever We well they are used in many many ways but the the whole group of came sippers grow from practically as his lowest my knee. And that's my short on up to the twenty five thirty forty fifty foot range. So that's the reason I gave you. The fancy name came a sip. RECIPRO- sopher up. And then I think this one is called for lifter Oreo so once you get done pronouncing all of that. It's it's one of those things that could really add some color to your property..

And actually before we go into anything who you are actually the origin story of when the most iconic. I am be real. I'm Eric Bobo. And I'm sitting dog, and we're cypress hill. You know, we started making our rooms in nineteen ninety one with rough house records through Sony Music and we've had a storied career if twenty-seven years of it. You know, we did a lot of out of the box things in terms of our music and sound to ninety one. When did you guys meet sending? I'd I've known since it sounds maybe thirteen fourteen years that puts around somewhere like nine hundred eighty six when we met he was eighty eighty three eighty two I think now it'll be younger. So he was hanging around with my brother break dancing. Yeah. And I had like this little little aspirations of being a rapper me.

So we actually auditioned in front of my mother's house. That's how sassy where it's. Started rather than he referred but three or four minutes and after like the first thirty seconds hours like he's in. But I just let them go on that quick that quick. As we became like a three man crew yet. And then he eventually guys just started doing their own solo deals immune be were like the last two left. Okay. About five or six entertainers that would eventually get contracts and stuff on our block in our little crew that we have met him with the last two and mugs was a producing somebody back east and kept sending me cassettes in the mail.

We could you know, right to these tracks or whatever. And he's like man, I I can't leave. We're in the middle of a war. So it must be back to LA. We both went over there and got him. And I think after the second time we he agreed to come to the apartment in Hollywood that mugs set up to a record one song. And we were going to bring them back to that night. And he never went back. He just stood in the studio apartment there, and we just recorded recording recorded, but our group we started at actually one thousand nine hundred eighty eight when heat ninety cited, you know, we're going call this cypress hill, which was the block that I lived on in south game was called cypress avenue.
