That's one percent of listeners who were kind to take a minute to write a review on itunes. Let's keep the momentum going. Please enjoy my conversation with Annie Duke. Thanks so much for coming joining me. I'm so happy to be here. You have this background. You say that like I. Cater poker-playing background one why don't we just start with you take a little bit of time to talk about your path to poker and then where we are today so are so I started off doing my Undergrad at Columbia and they're in my freshman year I met a professor, their name Barbara Orlando and she's amazing. She's now at Johns Hopkins and she was studying first. Language acquisition in children and ended up being her research assistant for four years while I was at Columbia, and at the time I thought I'm going to stay in New York that really really really love New York. But she really pushed me to go and study with her adviser for Graduate School and woman named Lila Glickman and her husband Henry Lightman who were at Penn.. So I applied to Penn I, got into Penn visit. I loved it I. Loved Lila. I loved Henry I loved the program there. So I ended up going to Philadelphia to. Get my PhD in cognitive psychology you almost got it. Yeah. So so things take a little bit of a turn I finished my coursework got my masters did my qualifying exam I did my research and I had all of my job talks lined up. So I was going to go out for my job talks. I actually got sick right before that and ended up in the hospital for two weeks. So in the academic world, it's a seasonal market. So if you kind of miss that one season, you have to wait a full year. I'd just gotten married. My husband is s husband had a place in Montana and we said, okay we'll just go there and I can recuperate and then I'll finish the whole thing and I'll go back out the next season but I discovered that when you leave school for that time off that you're fellowship doesn't follow you and I said Oh no, I need money. and. It was then that I started playing poker in a little tiny card room in Montana called krystal lounge, which is everything that you could imagine from a little tiny bar in downtown billings Montana, with that name, it's kind of wild to come from. I guess you could call a card playing family. It wasn't this rare thing that one day you said, Hey I'll just go try poker. Yeah. It wasn't so out of the Blue I. Mean we played a lot of cards when I was growing up not poker per se but my brother, he had gone off to go to college and he was really into chassis. He was actually an amazing chess player sort of through this chess world he kind of fell into playing poker. So he had already been playing for quite a while before I ever started playing I. Think actually he'd really been playing for about ten years so. By the time it got around to this thing that I did. He had already made the final table of the world series of poker. He was originally a great player. So it wasn't like completely out of the Blue I had watched him play quite a bit when I was in graduate school on my fellowship which doesn't leave you a lot of room for like vacation money. He actually would fly me out to Vegas once a year. For. Vacation and he had given me a little money to plant some low stakes games. So you know I had some experience and he said I was just telling me, I'm like I don't know what to do like I. Don't know what I'm supposed to do to make money. Now while I'm waiting to go back to academics and he's the one who actually suggested said, you know I think that you can play poker in. Montana why? Don't you do that and so at the APP that sounds like a good thing to do for the meantime, the meantime turned into twenty years. So there you go. You recognize at the time that you're training in psychology would be so relevant for the game itself at the time I would have to say, definitely, no, there's language acquisition over here, and then there's poker over here and I didn't necessarily obviously see how those two things might. Relate to each other. Now in retrospect I can say it was certainly really helpful. But the first time that I actually thought about it in any kind of really explicit way that there was this really strong relationship between two things was in two thousand and two I got asked to give I. Talk a friend of mine named Eric's idol whose an incredible poker player absolutely one of the legends of the game who actually met when I. Was Sixteen long before his playing poker through Howard Eric got asked by a friend of his to speak to a retreat of options traders for this friends hedge fund and Eric News, his name's Roger Low Eric knew him because Eric used to trade on the floor and so eric had been involved in the world of finance as well..

"You're like El Elvis hang out with Carl Perkins or like you know new in Ray. It's so not comparable like johnny cash so not comparable Tom Jones. So there's he had no peer. There's was no such thing as a peer for L. S. Yeah I think he had colonel. Tom Parker like carrying them from location location. We're giving him giving him drugs. Like yeah like baby giving drugs to Lil. Wayne you know what I mean like. Just controlling him through yeah. I can't even begin to imagine. But what would you if you were? If you're John Lennon what are you say Elvis John Lennon as I especially learned about him as an adult? There's some dark stuff but also then he was like very into comedy and very like in people's face a lot because in the in the actual story here he goes really hardcore my personality. I would have just been like. Oh Shit I got a high you know we know what Ringo Starr said peace and love peace and love no more fan mail that clip that will put great love it love it love it because they did a thing where all the Beatles get dropped off and they were being filed by their press officer who was named Tony Barrow and he told the BBC quote as the teams faced one. Another there was a weird silence and it was John who spoke. I rather awkwardly blurting out a stream of questions at Elvis saying quote. Why do you do all these soft-centred ballot for the cinema? These days. What happened to good old? Rock and roll and quote. Elvis was fairly quiet and I think what a Dick move like. You meet Elvis. And you're like why are you bad now? Is The craziest thing to do in the world. I don't have it in me. Yeah and you know that. Lake for those guys clear from another continent. Yeah so to them. This isn't just a mythical figure because of his fame it's because he comes from a an entirely different world yet different culture and different background and everything to just meet him and just be like fuck you and John Wayne Coli Cow. What and also the stories weird to me. Because I went and Google checked and The Beatles movie help head like just come out which is their second thing movie after hard day's night and like those were phenomena like Elvis also had a bunch of huge movies but they were making movies too so why be. Why BE WEIRD? I don't know maybe need to heal. Yeah just be cool about stuff that happened. And then. According to the article quote they quickly exhausted their initial bout of small talk and there was this embarrassing silence between the mega famous five. Is there facing each other with very little of import being said and quote you would think all five of them would be like now that we're here we make the best record in the world but it sounds like it was more of We have nothing to talk about. Maybe we do jam session or something. Yeah plus weirdly. The Beatles seem to have been focused on making the best record of all time. With Phil Spector. Yeah that was their goal was to get Phil. Spector roped into their. Yeah because they do a short jam session which is basically a Elvis's guys find all the guitars in the house and bring them down. There were no drums around just had to tap on stuff but they try this jam session and then they find they still have nothing to talk about and then it seems like colonel. Tom Parker who was kind of Elvis's handler. And and everything gave the Beatles stack of gift Elvis records as a way of saying okay. The the encounter is over get out and so then he gave that to them than according to. Tony Barrow whose. Ns BBC article quote. I remember as we went out to our limousines John Put on his Adolf Hitler accent and shouted Long Live Z. King also John's said as we got into our limousines. Elvis was stoned. George Harrison. Responded very quietly. Aren't we all? Yeah fucking George. Harrison seemed like he was a Chil- dude. Yeah he really does. I read recently Eric. Idols autobiography because he came on my show. George Harrison is one of his best buds. And you know George Harrison finance a python movies and stuff and like just comes off as like the guy that everyone wanted to be friends with because he was such a decent guy as really cool whereas in this story John Lennon really seems like an assault. Yeah I think he's good at music. I'M GONNA go out on a limb and say that okay. I check that I'm not afraid to say the things that people are thinking. I think John Lennon was pretty good. Music does seem like a little bit of A. He'll sometime sometimes. Yeah Pretty Fair. Are there any of these hangouts? You would've wanted to be at because some of the good ones. That'd be really fun and some of the awkward ones. I'm like that would be really fun. I really like to see them just sweat. That'd be great well. Some of the Beatles seem fun which is not true of most celebrities. I I think the other three seem fun. I remember John. Yeah like Paul might be a little intense some of the time otherwise pretty good like as much as we might laugh about Ringo being darcus which is in some ways that makes him the best one. Yes you're like. It's great he. He's a beetle and adore right. I mean he decided to be a dorkiest professionally on shining time station. Yes it's great really good. What joy what the person that I would want to see like of all these people that we've talked about princes one. I have the most connection to their art personally but I don't I don't think I want to know about prince as a person that much like. He seems like he was a very introverted man. Who was kind of funny and like the Internet in the early days of the Internet and would like post on his own message boards and stuff under pseudonyms and be like AOL chats. I didn't know that. Yeah that's cool. That is really cool. It's very fun like I know people that knew him on the Internet. That's any yeah. I saw him in concert once and it was amazing and I'm glad that I get to have his records forever but I don't need to know him as a person Elvis Presley. There is a part of me. That's like who is that human being. Yeah like this is crazy. That he was a human being and he doesn't seem like he would be a jerk right maybe befuddled in some way. Like there's a part of me that does Kinda WANNA see Elvis being a a person and like I feel the same way about Muhammad Ali as I feel about prints like I don't necessarily want it revealed to me who he is as a person in part because his public persona I think is probably really different than who he was as a human being. Yeah they probably was just an introverted guy. Who who was good at putting on the show. That don king was asking him to put on as you know. Boxing promoter was deeply principled. But maybe uncomfortable in other situations than that you know whereas Elvis. I'm like he. He would be a cool dude to kick it with. I don't know like making peanut butter and banana sandwiches or whatever. Maybe that'll be good. He's the closest to one that where I think it would be. It would be good. What about Eleanor Roosevelt and Erhard? That'd be pretty. Yeah Yeah but then I feel I feel creepy. Because they're making out in everything third wheel total wheel situation. What's the point of being a famous? Maybe lesbian of history not making out with the other famous maybe lesbians of history. You're not having romance together. And then they're like there are other lesbians. I don't have suggest. Yeah they're like come on. It wasn't just the two of US essentially. You're the ones I've heard. Kiss Kiss. Kiss folks that episode for this week. My thanks to Jesse Thorn for being so generous with his time and enjoyment of things and general attitude toward life. Also WanNa thank him and John Hodgman for allowing me to experience their judge. John Hodgman live tour. It's a next level live. Show they do so whenever there's new dates for that please watch out for it because it's great in our food notes. You will find the many crack sources and outside sources. 'cause we always feature both used to assemble this episode? I particularly recommend the BBC article about Elvis and the Beatles hanging out and having a pretty bad time you would think people that famous in the same field would find a way to make it work. Nope didn't do it. And of course we're linking the many podcasts of maximum fine and of Jesse Thorn. Because that's that's just good shows. I'm sure you already know them. If you like comedy podcasts. But if you don't highly recommend you check them out and beyond all that our theme music is Chicago Falcon by the Buddha spanned. This episode was engineered by Jordan cowling and edited by Chris. Sousa if you love this episode. That's great if you hate it let me know about it on social media. That's right social media I space. That makes celebrity hangouts a lot more public. And to me that removes a little. Magic takes a little bit of it out like I. I don't WanNa see Brad Pitt. And Jennifer Aniston shake hands in twenty twenty. I I want to imagine it. You know I just want that to be in my mind but we have a picture and who gets my own. Twitter account focuses on the magic of snoopy. And just what I'm up to. That account is at Alex Midi. My instagram is at Alex midst to Graham and on wider Internet at my website Alex Schmidt Dot Com got. My show dates my email newsletter of free Internet stuff tips and more.

I don't know where you're at with the like the notion of taking a bunch of stuff from the past and dusting it off and doing it doing it now like would you. Would you want like I. Don't I think some ideas. Yes come back all the time you know like friends or groups of people together I. It was a good idea for a Sitcom army buddies. Any any people in the collected work environment armament in dust them off and again. You know because we don't have that we're not inventing new form for ourselves all the time so some things if they if they the work van would probably work now.

"Fired because he was unreliable. Difficult call to work with and because he was kind of this era of the genius cartoonist. He thought that no one could replace them. And it was fired in one thousand nine hundred two from Ren and stimpy which he created aided started ninety one right and he tried to get the entire staff to walk with him. I think about half of them did maybe like twenty or thirty and did a lot stay behind man and to run the cartoon without Adam and he said handing it over to them would be handed over to Milkman. which is weird analogy? I'm not sure particularly being bad at drying. Yeah so what this staff did in return was make a cartoon where Ren and stimpy go to work for a cared reverend. Jack is a man who sells meat but as unreliable liable and never finishes at work on time and the main joke from the cartoon is that they put cheese and lunch meat on their head. They build sandwiches on their head which is apparently pulled from an actual all thing. John Chris Lucy did at a party when he was saying sandwich on someone's head I mean sure that's a funny thing for you and your friends but it just makes that makes it an incomprehensible cartoon which is why because without knowing the back story. It's just nonsense but it was mostly nonsense so it's okay surprised. There's not more revenge. Art like that where somebody is just so mad about something that they shoehorned without establishing it or making it makes sense but the final. Oh fuck you to him. was that every episode every episode. After John Chris Lucy left. They ended with a logo of which one's the dogs at renaissance with stimpy as a Milkman. So no the cat. The cat ran is the cat. No Iran is the doug six cats all right sorry to break in here. Yeah yeah the Big Red One justice Milkman. Remember that I never knew what the story was. Again it's fun once you learn it but it's so weird that they could just make aac these insane inside jokes and the Youth America was like yes this is. This is our favorite thing right now. I grew up thinking that like oh like once he was the Creator was pushed out. Like oh you got a raw deal. The show is a creatively. A shell of its former self yet billy western doing both voices and I was like Oh man. The show like sucks now. They've pushed out the guy who it was the genius who created it and then like spy TV like revived ren and stimpy I think around lake two thousand four or something like that and brought with John Chris Collusive like shepherding it and it was like oh the guy the guy who created it's back and charge and again this is before all the creepy stuff and then he made it and it was like super weird it was like Oh maybe we were just better off here with billy West doing all the voices and whoever took over after that like writing and everything again. Yeah the the ninety s or an amazing time for TV nation. It's in cartoon network started. It's only got dexterous laboratory. We got a powerful girls but it was also a golden age for Corny men and in their thirties. Drawing drawing boobs. Yeah just gross characters of women which I think. We started to phase out of animation. But it really was if you go back and watch laddis early rents tempe. There is like there's multiple gags were like. There's a woman whose body is obscured by like bathroom steam or something like that. The time I was like hell. Yeah but then. Now it's like Oh wait. A person who wasn't right on the head was nickelodeon anyway. Okay I have a have an animation cel that I got it New York comic con a few years ago from Ren and stimpy and I can't I paid a lot of money for I can't frame it now. I don't want to having rid of it either but I'm like I don't know what to do with this now. I mean that show was so centralized like the powdered toast man character. Oh Yeah at some point. I just started watching it. 'cause it was on Nickelodeon the only channel I watched and then powdered toast man. They grabbed his buttocks. And then my parents like didn't let me watch in a lot of characters with multiple characters would like wagle their asses directly at the camera. Yeah it's like really pendulous. But's it's the children's show someone was having to animate the but flap like Rocco's modern life also a lot of buts. Yeah but heavy CONTAC- oh affeldt very rents timpee influence. Yes yeah but has has aged better. Yeah it's also good because there's the grounding of Oh this is a show show about a guy in his twenty s who said Yeah. An instant be is just a Balsa Wall Insane Tex. Avery cartoon like there's nothing grounding it. Yeah I remember Mr Big had trying to bowl successfully and can't get in my life. I was like Oh. I'm really connecting with this middle-aged man struggle cartoon cut it out and yeah and then we've got a little bit more. TV here because one of them is two different characters in South Park. Of course South Park would make fun of someone do it all they. They rebound on the news. All the time don't they but they also too long running characters one of them is Leeann who has cartons mom and that is just Trey Parker being being extremely extremely mad at his old college fiancee. Who did cheat on him? Oh her name was Leeann and so when he made cannibal the musical he made a character. Victor who was a horse named Leeann that everyone rides and then he proceeded to make carpets mom who is in all sorts of Sexual exploits and and degradation named Leeann. Because because he's mad at her without. That was the show Mister Burns early. South Park Right was who was carbons dad. Yeah Yeah right right and the extremely now problematic twist was that his mom almost dead sounds sounds like South Park Hermaphrodite and yeah. I don't think they quite had the science missile that totally totally forgot about they let that sit for a whole summer. They were going to remember. Remember that so now they were going to satisfy the twist. And then when they came back did a whole terrance and Phillip episode. They didn't announce troll everyone. That's funny yeah. Because it's also like they have a point like why why should you care. It's just silly thing. Yeah and then. The other character here is butters who's a little bit more of a later period southbound character this is a situation where butters is based on a producer of the show named Eric. Stowe and his entire crime is being to like calm and polite and sweet When Parker and stone are dealing with him they initially kept calling calling him our little buddy and the were saying they were buddy over and over again it sort of morphed into butters and then they were just like we're going to? We're going to make fun of you. Who through this character and stow ask them to not do it? And they said we're doing it. Yeah so very butters move. He was a producer on the show. Yeah so he was like like you know helping it. Keep running and everything. Yeah that's but butters has become I think arguably one of the like a definitely a fan favorite and I would say like one of the most likeable characters like he's that's not that's not that bad of a legacy to have. I don't think yeah. Also his thing is that he's so sweet like he's just so naive I mean I guess they've had episodes say the show's on so long that like we've seen butters darker side as well come out but you know at his heart the baseline the character is like a really sweet character. Yeah he is. It's maybe maybe a little bit of Flanders they're not the same by like Flanders is respected. It's good yeah yeah. Let's do who won last character here. The character Basil Fawlty from Baltimore. Yeah which is a classic British Sitcom they only made twelve episodes but John cleese plays Basil Fawlty. Who who is a hotel owner? WHO's an asshole and there are farces? That's all I would not have guessed that there were only twelve episodes of fawlty towers. I just I feel like I just remember my grandma always saying saying like I'm GonNa Watch Tower because you would watch it on PBS. Or whatever like Oh this must be like eight years of that show to watch or something. No there's just guess she was just rewatching the same fucking in twelve over and over we had vhs growing up and so it's still like six tapes you now we will watch them over and over again. Yeah that also may be may shed some light. I'm the person that turns out Basil Fawlty based on because in one thousand nine hundred seventy one at the whole group Monty Python That junk was in. They stayed at the hotel. Gleneagles in Torque. Which is the town fawlty towers on the show and the owner of the hotel was a guy named Donald Sinclair? John cleese called him the rudest man I've ever come across in my life life and he was just basically really mad that anyone was staying at the hotel off. Time like Basil Fawlty. He at one point through Eric idols briefcase case into the street because it could have been a bomb key saw Terry Gilliam holding silverware and told him he was holding the silverware wrong and tried to correct him. When Terry Gilliam was like trying to eat he knocked on Michael Palin door one time to ask whether Palin meant to put up a do not disturb sign or not which is great? They're really really bad and he he he would Generally just march around demanding explanations whenever somebody wanted to get hot water to heat up a baby's bottle or get an early alarm call or late dinner or a taxi every time he would just be like well. Why justify this even though they were guests about Dell? That's amazing yes the antidotes that you included the research. Incredible that they sounded like Sitcom plots. Yeah it's all it's like. Just the logical extreme. Oh what's the comedy opposite of a hotel owner one who doesn't want anyone uh-huh like but it's real. It's not just like a an extremely simple premise. He also would do stuff like if a guest was trying to go out late. He would yell after them. And where do you think you're going which is just like sketch comedy show. He's also their dad. Yeah well apparently all the pythons left the hotel. As soon as they could buy clothes state a few more days I guess just to research the guy taking notes and then that was his. I like big thing after my made made his career to have done a second thing on top of it. Sounds like enough material. For more seasons British shows the either like are just twelve twelve episodes or they run forever like another one that my grandma into knows younger was red dwarf and just ran for like years and years and years better originals. Or they're yeah they're Sifi common. Yeah Yeah High Ground. LSU Yeah is cool. She's still love. Jesus Christ uh-huh yes she She turned me onto a lot of British comedy. British show either like okay you get two seasons or eighteen hours. They had six episodes in one thousand nine hundred ninety five and the other six thousand nine hundred seventy nine. Oh so they even like stop for lunch break probably to go back to the hotel and get margin. Yeah I feel like something like fawlty towers. It's almost more inspiration then revenge but other ones it's people who are just mad like it seems like it either does lead to some good art or it only does once in a while in these times it worked.

"eric idols" Discussed on Meet the Thriller Author: Interviews with Writers of Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense Books
"Forget who I put behind there the last book. So yeah. That's amazing especially with and you know two or three series going. Several series are going to. That's a lot of characters to keep trek of. Yes it is. And they also criss cross each other so some of the characters in bessie wonder through the ghostly really and the main characters in the Novella series actually started in a bessie appeared in the betsy. I before I even plan to do the Novella series so they visit Bessie. Bessie visits them. And then my go. Series is fifteen years later so some of the characters reappear as older versions of themselves love we find out what happened to them a little bit but I. I'm a great one for planting Easter eggs to like I love putting little hints. Hence there's there's a character in my thriller series it's even under a different pen name That their name is reused. Used and referenced. One of the best books Serena's could be searching for the little surprises in the books that circle and the new romance series There's an ice cream parlor called bessie. 'cause I just had the element. No it said in New York. Oh okay that's really cool Easter egg for the fans and so now as a reader do you still you still busy with your your kids and your books. Do you still find time to read yourself. Not as much as I would like Did did do some reading over the Thanksgiving break because I was like the term and not to do any work I don't read as much in the genres. John resigned right now as I used to. Still a few authors that I will read their latest books but I tend to read a lot. More sort of non-fiction on fiction. Now and and I'm currently reading Eric. Idols autobiography my husband. Got Back because he's a big python fan And it's just. It's just like wall to wall famous people. He's met like he's the most amazing life And I like to to read like travel memoirs and weird stuff that doesn't affect my creative process if that makes any sense it's it's a now so you lived in Alabama irony of any of the characters that appear in your books based loosely on real people or not specifically like I said best kind of loosely based on my mother in law and my grandmother in law Fenella the main character and the go sees this as a lot more me actually being the American in you know at duck out of water in the foreign country I mean there's some historical characters in the book In the books that are they don't talk about them. A lot and one of them is a ghost in the romance series but that's a whole nother story but I try not to base them on real people but I often look combine several real people to make a character if that makes sense and have you heard back from anybody that lives in the element. The books I do get emails and and things from people who live on the island who enjoy the books. I always worry because 'cause I know that there are Americanisms in my tax I try and write them in British English as much as I can But I know that Americanism sneak in and particularly the longer I live back in America America. You know the more I think American rather than British English and I worry that I'm getting things wrong about the island but generally the reception has been very positive is it is and I know at least at one point. One of the bookstores on the island was carrying my books which was great cool. You're writing with British spelling right. Like the U How hard was that two or these kind of I mean I mean? I had to learn all of that when I was doing my master's degree anyway for papers and things so I got very used to it. But now it's the changing back and forth because the ghostly series I write in American English because the main characters American. It's another reason why I like writing in blocks of four books at a time. So I know whether I'm writing British English or American English for an extended period of time. Yeah that'd be that'd be tough and so so you tell us what you're working you're working for the books that GonNa come on and twenty twenty one We have a new series coming out. Tell us about your latest the embassies book. That's coming out in January. You said an emphasis wonders now you. I've got to go and find it and read the blurb because I've finished through Z.. And I don't remember what's happening in this one. That's terrible it's got a copy of it to Do a final proof read of it before January. Oh I know they're going back on So bessie and her friend are going to a holiday park in the UK to get away from the island for a while Along with Inspector Rockwell doc well and his children because they just had something of a shock. Let's say so. There they head to the holiday park unfortunately gently best. He's friends lawyers also turn up and if you've read embassies holiday that she's best friend and Duna Is potentially the air to a portion of the holiday park because of her estranged husband who got murdered an ambitious the best holiday spoiler alert so now she's back at the holiday park and her lawyer is there and a lawyer whose opposing using her claim to the estate is there and then one of them gets murdered and again doing a and also John Rockwell end. That being suspects in Pepsi's always a suspect 'cause you know she's just always there. A lot of this is our aspiring writers the device do you have for them of people are just maybe having been there for spoke are getting started. I think if you WanNa right because you just WanNa right right what you love and don't worry about anything else if you WANNA make a career out of it or generate a second income out of it You need to try and find in that. Mix between writing what you love and writing to market and I'm not a great one to talk about writing the market. 'cause I wrote what I wanted to read need. Rather than specifically to market. It just turned out that other people want to read it too but I think as Amazon gets increasingly competitive and the INDIE author community gets bigger and bigger. You really need to try and find that spot in the market where you can enjoy your writing but still you know. Write something that people want to buy. If you if you think you like to read is I don't know sci-fi drama comedy or what. Have you know some weird mismatch of genres and you try writing gene that you're going to struggle to find an audience so maybe pick one and focus on that but you still need to love what you do so important into because yeah this is the John is out there. But if you're just renting it to make a glut of it financially it probably be kind of tough if you don't like it. I keep telling my a daughter because she loves to write as well is. Don't quit your day job and sounds really pessimistic. But it's the arts and the arts are really hard to make a living at and the only reason that I able to do it is because my husband has the day job with the insurance and and I mean the first year I was doing this. I made one hundred forty three three dollars. That's not a lot of money to live on I was lucky that I you know I was only supplementing a my husband's income income If you if you WANNA do this as a career make sure you've got some success. It took me three years to start making fulltime job money and I think you need to maybe keep another job until you're making that consistently before you jump into fulltime writing with all the changes that can happen in publishing to sit. I mean every time things have changed almost unrecognizable from when I started and you know luckily I was able to build up a reader base back when it was easier to do so. And I've been able to hold onto them by releasing really regularly. It's a lot harder to get started these days. It's a lot harder. Kit is on your books and every time Amazon changes something or or the. The publishing landscape changes your relearning skills. That you thought you already too. You know so. It's a lot to stay on top of of Christie business this publishing business. It's the best thing I've ever done to make money out. I absolutely love what I do. It's the dream to be able to live off your writing. So yeah it's awesome them and so we can the find. You're you're active on facebook or social media places active on facebook.

Everything and I just thought Oh my gosh. You can be funny about all this stuff well. I'm thinking to that yours was the the generation post war a horrific worse. Now you had a laugh we we were all born in war and then we grew up in the fifties which was a time in England where there was rationing of everything everything of butter cheese she'll beef so there's very great shortages. London's filled with bomb science. Everything was blitzed and horrible. What was interesting things that that generation as they matured became teenagers invented everything rock and roll photographers became wonderful photography. There was couture because there was nobody else there. You know they they have been in the army or just coming home so the wasn't anybody ahead of us so in a way that was a wonderful blank canvas and we got really lucky because they weren't saying Oh.

Mr Deva terribly because it is the number one song requested that British funerals. It's kind of an optimistic sweet sweet sour song for people to sing.

"eric idols" Discussed on Morning Mantra
"Today's mantra is run away. Run. You probably know this about me, but I used to be famous in quotes for my Monty python impressions. I actually had a friend in high school, who would March me in front of her very pro British dead. And make me do my Monty python impressions for him because she was so convinced that he would think it was charming and be impressed if he didn't, then he did a very, very good impression of being good natured and saying, oh, that's so funny, as I did a British accent in front of. My best work actually was exploding. Penguin on top of the television set had that one memorized, not gonna talk about exploring pigment, on top of the television set. I'm going to talk about my python, and the holy grail and the certain character called Sir, Robin, now the movie loves to make fun of Sir Robin because his name is Sarah, the brave, but he always runs away. And there is this song that's all about his brave deeds and then the song ends by saying, so rawal then ran away away. Brave Braves Robin, and it's very funny because it's all about how brave he's supposed to be what a gallon night and nights. Don't run away accepts a Robin runs away. Here's the thing, though. So Ravin survives almost until the end of the movie on, like most of the other minor characters. Sir, Robin runs away from fights. He knows he can't win a three headed giant. Yeah. He's going to run away, you know who doesn't run away from. A fight. He can't win the black Knight doesn't even run away. Once he's had both his arms cut off and can't hold a sword anymore. He doesn't run away until both of his legs are cut off. And he's literally stump on the ground say, come back here. I'll bite your legs off. That guy doesn't run away from fight, but look what happened to him so we can laugh all we want it serandon. But I have to say that I have a certain amount of respect for someone who, even though he is a night in the are thirty and times. And even though they're all these expectations that he'd be brave, and gallant and chivalrous, and all these things that he runs away when he knows that. No good can come of him staying in this fight. I think about this because I have a three year olds and I get in a lot of fights that I realized very quickly, I can't win by continuing to fight the only way to win is to retreat take breath. And then resume once we're on an even playing field again. I e once my kid has had a few minutes to take some deep breaths and get a hold of herself. Once I've had a few minutes, take some deep breaths and get a hold of myself, then we work on solving the problem. But when it's a fight between someone who is bound and determined to get what she wants out of me by any means necessary, and she's going to throw herself on the floor and pound, the ground fake cry until I give in. That's not a fight. I can win by staying there. I turn around I run away and I give it a minute, and I really do think of it in those, I think of it as Eric idols voice in my head's egg runaway run away, because it just takes me out of the moment, this much just enough to see that actually this is pretty silly, actually, there is a way to be the least silly person in this room, and I am taking that way. Next time you're in a fight. You can't win think of serandon the brave and run away..
