A highlight from Time Travel to 1994: A Journey into the Music and Movies of that year.
"Well, here we are, episode 119. And on this episode, myself in the wrecking tube, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. We'll be talking about the year 1994, in music and movies I think, it's always interesting. So sit back, relax, break out your flannel shirt, your grungy jeans, and enjoy 1994 music. It was an interesting year, so I think you'll enjoy it. More interesting than what Todd Zauchman thinks it is. He thinks it's nothing, so we'll see. The KLFB studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music, enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends, and welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not gonna say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Dlive, Twitch, and X, formerly known as Twitter, and I don't know how many other live platforms. Well, it's gonna be a good show tonight. It's gonna be an interesting show tonight. Yeah, 1994. As I said in the intro, my friend Todd Zauchman just absolutely sent me a text destroying the year 1994. Oh, I just looked up 1994, I don't know what you're gonna talk about, there's a few things and I don't know how you're gonna make a whole show out of it, and good luck with that, because that's how he talks. That's exactly how he talks. I'm just gonna do this, and you know, it's not gonna be a good, blah, blah, blah, blah. That's how he talks. Now, he'll deny that, and you'll never know if that's the way he talks or not. He'll just have to take my word for it. I'm Todd Zauchman, and I don't know about 1994. Well, enough about him. He'll probably be piping in pretty soon, but yeah, 1994, it's a good year. It was a good year for Mark Smith from the Music Rellers Show and Luke Colicchio from the Music Rellers Show. That's for damn sure. It was. What's up, gentlemen? It was a really good year. How you doing? I was just guessing. I figured for 94, listen, we were all younger, so it was better. It was a big year. Hey. So I have to stop right here. Dave Phillips, who's been watching the podcast from pretty much day one, Patty Yossi. Hi, Patty. Good evening. I love you. Dave Phillips, for the last couple of weeks, he's piped in at the end, and he's like, I missed it. Like something's changed. Ah, Tiffany Van Hill. That's my buddy. That's my buddy, Tiffany. She's one of the people that teaches me how to work with horses. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. And she knows what she's talking about. She's modest, but she's very good at what she does. As are all of my friends and teachers, trainers, mentors from The Herd Foundation in Delray Beach, Florida. It's a nonprofit if you're in the mood to donate today. Look them up. Herd Foundation. Give us some money. Nah, I'm not going like that. No. No, we do. We help veterans. We help veterans, and so it's a good cause. But back to Tiffany. Yep. That's my buddy. Good evening. The Herd Foundation teaches us so much. That's right. That's right. Maybe I'll do a Herd Foundation podcast. You should. Since I'm pretty good at it. You're going to have horses on? What's the horse named after the cookie? Huh? Isn't there a horse named after a cookie? What are some of the horses' names? Oh, Fig Newton. Fig Newton. Yeah. Fig Newton. That's my boy. That's my boy. Good looking horse. Yes. Yes, he is. And we have Stitch. Fig Newton is a retired dressage horse, dancing horse, right? Echoes of Echo and the Bunny Men bring on the dancing horses. We have Stitch. He's a retired racehorse. We have Miss America. She's a retired jumper. Then we have two mini horses. We have Cinnamon. She was a cot horse. You know, pulls the kids around. As would be Sammy. Sammy's the one that looks like Kaja Gugu for you people from the 80s. Looks like Lamal. It looks like Lamal from Kaja Gugu. Gotta do. And he was saved from a kill pen. Yeah. But he's a mini, but he thinks he's a Clydesdale. What do they do with horses after that? Is that the proverbial glue factory? All right. You know what? Right away. Penalty box. Oh. He's raining on my parade. I'm in a good mood. Now I'm all bummed out. Thanks. You feel sad for the drummer now. This is going to be a horrible show now. Leave it to the drummer. Right, Mark? Leave it to the drummer. Get out. It's always the drummer's fault. That's right. See, Tiffany says, that does not exist past our gates, Lou. Because nobody wants to talk. Back to the penalty box. Great start to the show. Lou is just in a mood tonight. I think he's been hitting the whistle. What's going to happen? You're going to come back and it's going to be an empty chair. He's very ornery tonight. Right away. He's very ornery. All right. He's filling his oats, as they would say. Yeah. All right. Lou's back. I'm all right. I'm all right. Okay. Enough about horses, although I could now, at this point, talk about horses for two hours. I love it. I love it. But instead, gentlemen, first of all, how's things on the music relish show? You. Take it away, Lou. Sure. It's fine. It was such an awful show. I thought I said the wrong show for a second there. It's been nothing short of amazing. Don't jump over each other to answer that question. It's always fun. Last week was fun. We got knocked down a bit by Warner Brothers because we played a clip of an America song featuring Dan Peake. Yeah. You're going to watch that. Yeah. We talked through the whole thing, but Spotify is much cooler than YouTube. YouTube sucks like that. YouTube, they have a very strong algorithm. They can kiss my rosy red ass over that. That's right. You tell them, Lou. Fuckers. That's right. Get me kicked off YouTube. That's right. Let me see. John Morris, he was our shift commander. When I met him, I was, I think, a two striper, and he was what they called a butterbot. He was a second lieutenant, I believe. He said, tell them stories from the Nipah Hut in the Philippines. That's a big no. That's a whole other podcast, but they would never make it on the air. Just leave it at that. It's like a chain of Nipah Huts? No. It was a bar slash club called the Nipah Hut. Tell one story. No. They had a giant spaceship that would come down from the top. It's kind of like George Clinton in parliament. At the end of the show, this big spaceship came down from the top. Smoke. Like you said, parliament fucking pelican. Then the thing went open, and everyone would walk up and get up on stage, all those drunk GIs. Like, yeah, I'm going in the spaceship, and you go down these stairs, and you're in a fucking basement. I don't think it was a basement. It's like something from a fucking horror movie. How do you get out? And then somebody goes, this way, this way, go, go, go, go. That's the cleanest story I can tell you. It's the cleanest story I can tell you. Sounds like fun. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. I got a story for you off the air one of these days. So okay, music relish show's going good. Excellent. I just wanted to say, Lou brought up, he made the show. His segment on bad love songs. That will go down in history as some of the best podcasting ever. Bad love songs? Really bad love songs. The worst love songs of all time, like in rock. It's a deep vein. Is that something, is that like content I could probably like borrow with Perry Mind? Because I'd love to hear that list someday. We voted him off the board. We're no longer a false triumvirate democracy. Wait a minute. We toppled the AI monarchy. There's three of us on this one. Are you two going to overthrow me too? Are you like rebels? None of those stories you're told, no. They're wrecking too. Instead I'll start calling you the Sandinistas. The hostile takeovers. You go on podcasts just to take them over? Like Amiens took over the White House. Really, yeah. Yeah, we could do that. I would love to. Maybe next week we'll do, we'll take a break from the years and we'll do like a, kind of a jambalaya, you know, of stuff. Like throw some music news in there. We'll do some trivia. Maybe I'll come up with some questions for you guys. You could give us that deep vein of worst love songs ever. And it's funny, we noticed that several of them made everyone's list of worst love songs. So it's got to be universally bad. Okay. If everyone said that, that fucking song. Then there were a couple where I said I liked the song, but Lou and Perry were like, what? I'm always, you know, on the one side. Yeah, the one. When it falls into like that kind of metal, metal category, you have a soft spot. Air metal. Metal ballads. Oh my God. How I grew up. Yeah, yeah. As young as Ron Mark, you didn't have to deal with those 70s ones. Yeah, that's true. I did. This fucking guy. Blah. See what I mean? He's setting the bar high. Remember, this is how he talks. I don't think there's anything good about 1994. Blah. So he talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yeah, well, an American Arnold Schwarzenegger. He talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent. We're going to pass the bar on this one. I am here. Let me see if you can entertain me. 1994. Blah. All right. So let's actually get right into 1994. Yeah. So we'll start on January 19th, 1994. Bryan Adams becomes the first major Western music star to perform in Vietnam since the end of the Vietnam War. Oh, shit. Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, yeah. Wow. On January 21st to February, as it's spelled, the Big Day Out Festival takes place, again, expanding from those previous years. Blah, blah, blah. Auckland, New Zealand. The festival is headlined by Soundgarden, Ramones, and Bjork. Nice. That's an interesting... Probably each night there were headlines. I would love to see Bjork. Me too. I would never want to see the Ramones. They'll never get back together again. Unless they perform in the Pet Sematary. Yeah. Hey, Lou, can you put him in the green room? No, I'd like that one. That's a good one. Come on, there's a little crossover. Put him in the green room. Put him in the green room. Okay, yeah, yeah. Oh, it's going to be a long show. It's going to be a long one tonight. I feel better about myself now. Got a little redemption? The redemption song? Yes. I got a Buffett story for you. Oh, yeah? His one song was The Pirate Looks at 40. He would segue into Bob Marley's redemption song. Oh, jeez. And it didn't quite... Wait a minute. Buddy, that is the quickest way to get to the penalty box. I'm not playing it, though. I know you're not. You're poking the rhino right now. I'm a guitarist. You're poking the rhino right now. You're not a rhino, you're a nice guy. Come on, we went through that last week. And so, as I've been saying each week, I'm just going to say right now, where's Jack? Okay, and we'll move on from that. Hey, Jack. Hey, Jack, please come back. He didn't listen before, so I don't think he's listening now. Let's see. January 25th, Alice in Chains released their Jar of Flies album, which makes its U .S. chart debut at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first ever EP to do that. Right? But they still are always talked about as like number three or number four out of the big four. Big four being? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden. And Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains is never getting that kind of... Whereas... That first album, the record company made them sound like another band. Yeah. And that's not their fault. They were produced that way. Dirt was a great album. Yes, yes. And Layne Staley was one of the greatest frontmen ever. Just as cool as the other side of the pillow, as they say. Yeah. voice Very unique also. Today we were talking about what we were going to talk about in the show. And he goes, when I saw the videos, he goes, I didn't match his face with the way he looked. Right? He said he was expecting like a grungy, more... No, he was slick. He was slick. In the Man in the Box video, he's got the kind of long... But then he changed it up. He slicked the hair back, he wore the shades, you know. Just turned into a... Suzanne McPhail. Another one of my horse people. She's the one that introduced me to that whole thing. And she said, who's Jack? That's right, I guess. At this point. On January 29th, The Supremes' Mary Wilson is injured when her Jeep hits a freeway median and flips over just outside of LA. Wilson's 14 -year -old son is killed in the accident. What a good day. Ah, this fucking... I saw this and I was like... Dead horses was a bummer. I know, I know. I saw this and I'm like, there's no way around this. February 1st, Green Day releases their breakthrough album, Dookie. Ushering in the mid -1990s punk revival. Dookie eventually achieves diamond certification. Now, I did like them back then. I actually did. I was stationed in Southern California in Riverside. And I decided to get like a side job. You know, I was in the Air Force. But I was like, I want to make a little more money. I want to do something. So I got a job at a record store. Cool. Was it Spencer's or something? Forget the name of it. Oh, Spencer's. They sold all the trinkets, too. No, no, it wasn't Spencer's then. It was something like that. It was a chain. Hot topic. They sold DVDs, too. FYE. No, it wasn't that. I'll remember it. I was working there when Dookie came out and the fucking whole wall was covered with Dookie CDs and they were flying off the shelves. It had a pretty fresh sound. It was fresh then. And coming off the 80s were kind of slick in a lot of ways, except for some of the real heavy alternative. But to hear a song like that on the radio, that was like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit on mainstream rock radio. Good drummer, too. As a band, whether you like him or not, I think he's really good. Billy Joe Armstrong. Oh, Trey Cool. Trey Cool, yeah. February 7th, Blind Melons lead singer is Shannon Poon forced to leave the American Music Awards ceremony because he is loud and disruptive behavior. Poon is later charged with battery assault, resisting arrest, and destroying a police station telephone. Now, this is the dude that sang, you know, And I don't really care if I sleep all day And he's in the daisy field, so you think he's like this really, like, chill dude. And like, you know, me and the B -girl, man, you know. The B -girl, yes. And the tap -dancing B -girl, and like, I'm just this dude's a fucking lunatic. He was taking substances that made him. Oh, yeah. That was a short career. Was it him that did a duet with Guns N' Roses? What was the video, a song from Guns N' Roses with a video where they're up on like a water tower and they jump into the water or something. I forget what it was called. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they did it with him.

"Cut number ten. Pardon as the president departs. All the kids under the age of 15, come on up here. Yeah. Kids under the age of 15 come on up. And this is the president at peak performance. Meanwhile, he canceled the meeting today on the debt limit. Cut number one, speaker McCarthy at the house yesterday. Tomorrow will be the 100th day since I first sat down with the president on February 1st. To identify a problem. To know the deadline would be coming. We all know that the deadline for default is June 1st. Why are we in this situation? Because inflation, Democrats added $6 trillion. They harmed every single-family by bringing inflation to our country. And now three of the four largest bank failures in American history has happened just in a couple months.

Jim four's daughter 11 year old Nicole remembers the day her mother was shot and killed. We're waiting for my mom to look for a parking space, and then she was taking a lot of time, so we started calling her over and over again, but it wouldn't pick up. So, and then we heard gunshots and we started calling the police. On February 1st, neighbors saw a man in dark clothes, argue with June 4 at her driver's side window, then opened fire before running off, say your ville business administrator Glen skarsgard says, the community is frustrated. We're frustrated as well, but we are confident that our law enforcement partners will identify a suspect and bring justice for unis and for the community. I'm Donna water

"What are you going to do about it and what does a $7 trillion spending plan on top of all the other inflationary spending due to this country Well Mark you raise all the great points I met with the president on February 1st I sat down with them I said we've got to get our House in order As an out predetermined what the agreement has to be but I'm never going to raise taxes and I'm not going to pass a clean debt to We can't afford it You brought us inflation We got bank failures now We've got more dependency on China We've got a curve all that And so for the last 78 days he's just ignored He doesn't want to negotiate He thinks he can take this to the brink and we'll just buckle But you know what Republicans are going to do We're going to leave So next week we're going to pass What I call the limit save grow plan okay You're going to limit what government can spend So we're going to cap for the next ten years We're going to go back to 2022 Where we were four months ago you know it's not going to kill anybody Everybody was in a good place And we're going to cap growth at 1% a year We're going to save money the taxpayer We're going to call back any money that's been sitting there You didn't spend in the pandemic the pandemic's over He signs a bill And so if it's money just sitting there bring that back We're going to put in work requirements to help people get jobs They pay in more to social security and the Medicare It makes them stronger We're going to put the reins act in to curve them back And you know that inflation reduction bill that just kind of destroyed the economy We're going to repeal that It's really simple And then to grow we're going to put HR one We're going to make America energy independent We're going to cut the red tape so we could build stuff in America again It's pretty simple and straightforward
"february 1st" Discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"More things to throw you and then we'll do nothing on Sacramento. You just put the Lakers in there over Sacramento. You already said they don't play defense. Can I add something to it? This is what's so my two word phrase was going to be clutch offense. Their offense in the clutch is number one in the NBA. And it is by miles. There are a 129 points per 100 possessions in the clutch. It's an insane number. There are 11 points better than Brooklyn who actually still ranks number two, which will probably change at some point. Miles beyond everybody, but there are 26 on defense and since February 1st are actually 28th. So yeah, the defense is an issue. I'll tell you this much. If they can keep that three seed, and there are three above Phoenix in the last column right now. We're running out of games. They've only of 19 games left. That's going to be an impossible place to play. I think that possible. Well, not impossible. You know what I mean? I love that the Timberwolves are a 6th seed. Yeah, but you know, did you see them this weekend? There's flashes of like, oh my God, this could actually be a competent playoff team. Because Conley is starting to really ingratiate himself in the Conley way in the good ways, right? Yeah. Because if you look very good, it looks like he had fallen off a cliff there. Actually, he was leaking a little bit last year. I have a lot. I have a lot invested in them kind of being steady, the rest of the way, because forgotten in the Kendrick Perkins run this season was that he called the best backcourt, we
"february 1st" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Power, just about two hours from right now. We are going to get the fed minutes from the last meeting. And the markets is fair to say our waiting with bated breath because they're not doing a whole lot today waiting to find out what the minutes may tell us to give us his view about what he's looking for in them when we turn that to Michael McKee. He's Bloomberg international economics and policy correspondent. He is in Washington to get them hot off the presses although I guess they don't come up the presses anymore, Mike. They don't come off the press as hot off the Xerox machine or however they're going to print it out. The problem David is that these minutes are three weeks old now and the world has changed. So I'm not sure exactly what Wall Street will get out of it. If you think of what happened, it was February 1st that the fed met and raised rates by a quarter percentage point. And since then, we've had a very strong jobs report. We've had a hot CPI report, and we've also had a hot and strong retail sales report. So whatever the fed was thinking at the time, they may be thinking something different now. It's hard to tell. Wall Street has already thinking something different. You look at what's happened to the yield curve since the fed last met. The yield curve has moved up substantially as traders price in more fed rate hikes and for longer. And I guess the idea there is that maybe the markets are finally starting to believe the fed when it says it's going to keep rates high for a long time. What might we get out of the minutes today? Well, Loretta mester and Jim bullard, the Cleveland and St. Louis fed president said that they could see a case for 50 basis points at the last meeting. So we'll want to know if anybody else did, because if there's a large group of them that might make the case for a bigger move next time, given the data that we've gotten, we can also see whether they were thinking about a pause or what they were thinking about a pause, J Powell said at his news conference that he would that we would be seeing details on what they thought about that in these minutes. So it doesn't look like they're going to pause now, but we can get some idea of what they were thinking. And then was there a consensus for moving rates over their December 14th consensus projection of 5.1% in the dot plot. That's going to be an important thing for the markets today because if the fed was already thinking about a higher rate at a time when things looked a little bit better, they got to be thinking about even more today. Okay, thank you so much to bloomer's Michael McKee. We turn now from a true expert in the outside to somebody who has been inside for these meetings. He's Randy krasner. He's now a Professor of economics at the Chicago booth school. Doctor kozena earlier served as a governor of the third reserve. So Randy, thank you so much for being back with us. Address what Mike was just saying, are these out of date or might they give us some indication of where members of the fed were inclined to go before the latest data? Think of some indication, but exactly as Mike was saying, a lot of data have come out since then and the fed is going to be racked into the current data not to the old data. But I think that the messaging has been incredibly clear and exactly as Mike said, the markets have just not been willing to listen to it. They've been saying over and over, they're going to keep at it until they really see inflation consistently coming down and it started to come down, but not come down in a consistent way. And also the labor market is still very strong. Until the labor market cracks, they're going to keep at it. So I think the minutes are going to be consistent with what they've been saying, which is they're going to continue these 25 basis point increases. I don't think we're going to get enough detail to know exactly how many people said, oh, they wanted 50. But I think it would be pretty clear that they're going to go another 25 and probably another 25 after that. Resting somewhere between 5 and a quarter and 5 and a half. Randy, it's fair to say that the economic data came in stronger than a lot of people expected they would. I suppose a basic question for the fed and for us is that because in fact, the economy is actually more resistant to the medicine of rate hikes than we thought it was or because there's just a lag. I mean, do you have an opinion on that subject? Well, certainly there's a lag, but the fed is not started their interest rate increases and reducing the size of the balance sheet about a year ago. So we should be seeing some impact of that now. And we're seeing it in some areas, for example, the housing market, we saw interest rates move up mortgage rates move up and some downturn in housing prices in some areas. So it has had some impacts. But we should be seeing some impact on the labor market by now. It's possible. Some people have talked about and immaculate disinflation that you can bring down the inflation rate without bringing down the unemployment rate. We've never had that happen before. I don't want to rule it out, but I wouldn't say that that is my base case. Well, pursue that issue if you would, Randy, and that is, is there something flawed in the models or if not flawed, just it's for a different time in a different place with respect to the relationship between inflation and employment because certainly I don't think it's following what classical economists would have told us. For sure, we would think that by now you can start to see a little bit of movement in the in the labor market. But as you said, it's been a long time since we've really seen these kinds of cycles. Also, and I think this is one of the reasons why the market has been so reluctant to believe the fed. The fed hasn't taken the punch bowl away when the party has really gotten going for decades. So you've now got generations of people in the markets and as well as just the folks at folks at home. Who haven't seen the fed actually tried to engineer an economic slowdown. So I think that's one of the reasons why they don't believe that the fed really will want to do that. But I think it will do that at some point

NY School Marks Black History Month With Fried Chicken and Watermelon
"Now I want to talk about the school in New York, New York who decided on February 1st to go outside of their normal cooking schedule to whip up some fried chicken and watermelon. Now, I don't know why black people are so sensitive. What is your problem with fried chicken and watermelon? It's crazy because I grew up eating nothing but fried chicken. I would die for that nasty lunch meal to actually be fried chicken. And not that rubber pizza that they serve us with the nasty mashed potatoes and that corn has been sitting there for about a month. Please oh please. I wish they would serve fried chicken instead of that trash that they serve when I was in school eating lunches. But you can't please some black people in America. Because if you don't do nothing for black history month, February 1st, the shortest month of the year, go figure, you don't do anything. You serve Chinese food, you serve Mexican food.

'Bitcoin NFTs' Put Blockchain Purists on the Defensive
"One of the pieces of news that's been going on this week is that there's some drama in crypto Twitter about Bitcoin NFTs. So I did not know that Bitcoin NFTs were a thing. Apparently they're not super, they're kind of a thing. So it comes down to this project called ordinals, which was launched by a Casey rod armor. And the TLDR is that there are these NFTs on Bitcoin that basically they are being so you have a satoshi, which is the smallest unit possible on Bitcoin that you can transfer. So you take this one satoshi, and this one satoshi, when you transfer it, it has some metadata that you shove into the witness that is like, okay, here's what the NFT is. Here's what it does. Here's the color, the size or whatever metadata you put with the NFT. And so all this stuff is not sort of depending on how you qualify the witness, which the witnesses can now be larger in Bitcoin thanks to taproot. They don't necessarily have to be persistent on chain, but a lot of people do persist these witnesses. So that's where this NFT metadata is going. And it is making people in Bitcoin land mad. They are mad that there are some people who are shoving this NFT data into Bitcoin witnesses because it's quote unquote clogging up the chain. So now these ordinals in absolute terms are not super popular in a ton of volume right now. I think going through these Bitcoin NFTs, but there's a lot of argument about it. They have a dancing baby one. These are beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. Wow. What are you guys thoughts on the ordinals drama and Bitcoin people getting mad about NFTs? I just don't understand why any Bitcoin supporter would be mad that people are using the Bitcoin blockchain. I think one of the most layers thing is actually, so there's a meme about hitting the witness size limit, which is like a round four megs, and we actually just did it an hour ago before this recording. So Wednesday, February 1st, around 5 between 5 and 6 p.m., like in the last hour ish. Was the first block. And it costs one BTC. It was basically nothing for filling the whole block. So don't like big blocks, they're just kind of, they're just kind of mad people about everything. It's like the Luke junior, the Adam bock, et cetera, cabal.
Binance SWIFT Banking Partner Set to Ban USD Transfers Below $100K
"All right, Friends, welcome back to another week of the breakdown. And there was a pretty good cluster of news there at the very end of last week heading into the weekend to say nothing of over the weekend, so today we're going to go over what we missed and see where it leaves us heading into this final week of January. Let's start on Saturday morning where we had some fairly sensational reporting before things calm down a bit. On Saturday a headline from the publication Asia markets sent a shockwave through crypto Twitter. The headline was swift payments network access cut to crypto exchanges, which if it were what the headline suggested would be a pretty big deal. So what it was actually about was changes to policies affecting binance. These changes would prevent customers from processing transactions to and from the exchange in amounts less than $100,000 via the swift payments network beginning in February. Swift is the international U.S. dollar based transaction messaging system, which facilitates a majority of cross border wires. Now short on details and high on FUD potential, the article caused the crypto critical corners of Twitter to light up with speculation that this was the end of the crypto industry. David Gerard writes swift network will no longer process transfers of actual money from bank accounts to cryptocurrency exchanges with the value of less than $100,000, effective 1st of February 2023. The move will thwart crypto access to tens of millions of people worldwide. Thankfully, finance a lot rights crypto exchanges use the swift network to facilitate deposit and withdrawal requests in Fiat currency. It's scary how many replies don't know about swift and how big of a deal this announcement is. Basically, crypto exchanges are cut off from the banking system on February 1st.

This was a decision that was expected by 11 of 16 economists appalled by Bloomberg, the remaining 5 had forecast no change. Some in the market had been saying that this could be the final hike in the BOK tightening cycle, but the bank of Korea has said that it does see continued tightening as warranted. And from the Financial Times that China is moving to take shares in local units of Alibaba and Tencent, let's take a closer look ten cent is trading down about a half a percent this morning. Alibaba is down about 8 tenths of 1%. The index is staying above neutral here with a gain of about a tenth of 1%, but the tech index has moved a little to the downside with losses of about two tenths of 1%.

All eyes will be on the fed at the end of this month with its two day meeting January 31st in February 1st, whether or not it moves 25 basis points here or perhaps 50 basis points. The market reacted today as though the fed will downshift here. And we had a pretty solid gains on Wall Street with the S&P 500 up a third of 1% and the NASDAQ gaining 6 tenths of 1%.

"About all the time that delta between what you think the fed should do and what you think the fed will do. February 1st is the next meeting and until recently I've been thinking 50 is a slam dunk because as you said, they're obsessed with the idea of killing inflation and they don't want to be thought of as Arthur burns. They want to be Paul Volcker, I've heard though more and more people say they're taking 25 basis points into account now. What do you expect they will do on February 1st? I think they'll do 25 basis points. The numbers have been showing economic numbers economic data inflation data have all been pointing to the downside. I think what they should do is nothing but what they will do is 25 basis points. Simply to maintain what they've been saying, there's not one fed representative who's even begun to talk anything but we need to get raised higher and we need to get retired and we saw it from the ECB revenue this morning rates need to be restrictive. I'm not really sure where central banks are coming from where they feel like they need to choke off economic growth. But they are in that camp. And that's what they believe they need to do to squash inflation. And willing to overshoot the runway to not lose credibility. I mean, Ollie rain is looking at an economy with 10% inflation still. So that's why they want to grow. I do, but you're looking at inflation coming from places I think that central banks can't really control.

So tell me what's going on with this stimulus package. I feel like it Z never ending stimulus package. Well, John details and service a little weekend that the new stimulus package with $1.9 trillion in his past in the early morning by the House, and the biggest detail it is that extend unemployment benefits. More than five months now, and it would add an additional $400 to recipients per week. Understand practice Now the stimulus bill now goes to the Senate. Rowboat. And even though Democrats hold a slight majority, normally in other cases, a stronger so the majority is in the past. It will consider a capacity a simple majority now. Using a budget room called reconciliation, So it seems that Democrats in the House government wanted Now when you look through this bill, though, there's a look. There's still a lot of patent, which I'm not a fan, and I know you want either. There's a lot of things in there that don't address over concerns, which is what shall be about right? In any of that, In the biggest number. There is more about the additional five months of unemployment and that additional quarter per week which isn't a lot of Americans were still struggling. That's a welcome sight for them, but at the same token, It's sort of making people beholden to government even more because of its be honest, if you're paying people to stay home and work, chances are 100% in May do that, Yeah. Well, I saw that. You know, in the beginning stages that a pandemic just when they were starting open again. Some of my friends who were contractors this stuff say I've got some good workers who were like, Hey, man. Why would I come back when I'm making more when they boosted to 1000 making more take home tax free, Then I get from working. What I what I work. So there was some bad stuff of foot there. But it just seems like the whole package when when you get down to the nuts and bolts of it the amount of money that's being spent this year. To me is sickening. You know what I'm saying? Because we should be spending it all this year, John. I mean, there are more than 90 Million Americans. As of February 1st. They're collecting unemployment. It's still a startling number. And whether or not this administration in Washington want to do anything about it. I mean, one thing is Listen. Nothing is the promise. Federal student loan forgiveness when things to promise $2000 checks that has not happened, and that is not going to happen under this new bill, So it seems that you know, I love people may not say it openly John. There's a lot of buyer's remorse by people that were still triggered by mean tweets and everything else last four years that they're seeing that government still isn't working for them, especially now that Democrats Although all the cards and all parts of the federal government Yeah, well, I gotta tell you, you know, early on when when we had everything. I was really proud of the Republicans the way they went, and they just used the brute force of you know, we're getting judges were getting him through 50 50, bringing the vice president They actually muscled it like I liked it, you know, And I was really fearful that the Democrats were going to do the same thing now, you know. And I really I gotta tell you like this guy, Joe Manchin. He's doing it for me right now because even though he's a Democrat, like 70% of his state, voted for Trump So he's gotta walk a fine line if you want to keep getting re elected, and I think he's been doing a fair job of keeping his side in line. I agree with you and listen. This is a guy who's up for re election in 2022. Obviously, in addition to the All the House seats are up for grabs his Senate seats up for grabs, and this is a cycle John, where the Democratic majority of sheets is now up for grabs. In 2022. This is a chance where again, Republicans have toe sort of hammer home. The message that this Democratic party is not being fiscally responsible. They're gonna be looking to this bill again. There's some covered, really, but it should be completely full of covert really shouldn't be portions. It shouldn't be. You know a part of it. It should be completely dedicated to Colbert really question. So for me, I usually focus on three categories, and that's gonna be health, wealth or relationships right? So if it's a product in those three categories And you really well help is the biggest one because you know, I want to say it's not. It's not pandemic proof, but you know there's nothing like that. But think about health is that even though you think they're struggling, people still wanna lose weight right. People still want to get in shape. So regardless of what's going on with the economy, that would be a great category to focus on because It is so mass market and everybody can relate. Want to lose some weight or getting better know what the you know what the top two most sought after marketing dollars are Weight loss and hair loss. Sure, you know what I'm saying? That's like, Oh, it's all about the appearance. You know, the those are the biggest biggest ones you run in and the magazine years ago or you run some infomercial at two of them wanted. Say, Take this billionaire world back. They get overwhelming response. I'm sure you know this, You know, hair loss of weight loss.

Only twenty five percent indoor dining That they can do right now at the moment and with that wind that we talked about earlier Outdoor dining may not be so pleasant coming up tonight Noko now again. A poll question today is the Sh should basketball players high school basketball players before to wear masks. Poll question up at no. So i've been mentioning here That it feels like colorado lawmakers are playing a game while that game. I would call elitism as we came out a piece from the colorado sun came out just earlier this week that colorado lawmakers we'll get access to covid nineteen vaccine of thousands in others of others and second phase. This this plan new was going to. You knew it was gonna probably happen but with the rollout being as difficult as it has been already. This just looks really bad in my opinion for these lawmakers to jump in front of all of these people they are. They're gonna have access to kobe. Nineteen vaccine for the twenty twenty lawmaking term. It begins wednesday. Then they go back into a recess for a while but they moved themselves up into these second inoculation phase. A house speaker at garnett democrat out of denver confirmed that members of the general assembly are being prioritised. Legislators are expected to receive two doses of vaccine by february sixteenth when the lawmaking term is expected to begin in earnest about two weeks before when the state is hoping to have vaccinated a majority of colorado's who are seventy and older. So they're putting themselves way ahead of of people who are would die or dying from this virus. And i just i. I've got an issue. This senate majority leader steve. Berg boulder democrats said monday. I don't think we were jumping the line by no means. Are we taking vaccines. Take away from others. That absolutely need it more than us. But i think it's important for the continuity of our state government that the legislature is able to meet as the constitution requires but you are jumping in line first of all secondly you are taking vaccines away from others. That absolutely needed this seventy and up. Hell even sixty five and up absolutely need this. And you're jumping line and taking away vaccines that have been slow to be rolled out for. Everybody rolled out for the the common person. Not all support. The plan senator. Paul a lundin's a monument republican said he will refuse to get the vaccine ahead of instead. He will wait for win. He would have received the inoculation if he weren't ilam acre. The quote from the sixty one year old said. I'm not going to cut in line in front of other people who are more at risk. This picture this In terms of the rhetoric. That's going on in our in in politics right now. You have blatantly jumping in line. There plainly jumping lineup people to get this vaccine one says no the democrats say no. We're not republicans. Say yes we are. It's black and white. I don't even know for speaking the same language anymore. It's it's it's there's only one clear answer to this on in my opinion but In late december police shoveled colorado's vaccine distribution plan to move state legislators and other essential government workers into phase one be putting them behind frontline healthcare workers who interact with covid nineteen patients on a daily basis as well as nursing home residents and staff the second phase now also includes colorado older than seventy teachers healthcare workers with less direct contact with coronavirus patients. First responders essential workers and some journalist but state health officials have recommended that people over seventy first responders in healthcare workers get vaccinated before others in the one b group more than one point three million people one point three million people or nearly a quarter of the state's population are part of this face. There's one hundred. Legislators there are a whole lot of people in colorado. That are over seventy so. I think it's just simply it's going to take a while to get through that population fienberg said colorado lawmakers planning to start the session this week but only meet for three days to handle a handful of bills before taking a prolonged recess to february sixteenth. Doesn't it doesn't it. Just piss you off reading about this. So now they're jumping ahead to take these vaccines. They're giving themselves up prolonged recess until february sixteenth when the bulk of the lawmaking is expected to resume. The hope is the coronavirus cases in colorado have decreased by that they're decreasing now. Were opening things up now. What's the difference. Why why is it a different game. It's not just different standard. They're playing a different game. And it's infuriating to sit and watch it unfold representative diana s car. The house majority leader so the schedule is based on advice from public. Health officials who were worried about rising case counts from new year's eve celebrations and the holidays. Guess what they're not going up the tran that we thought we were. Seeing is been reversed cases are going back down. Do you know why the number of cases went up because the number of tests that went out went up because the numbers were skewed a little bit by holiday travel. Sure i'll give you that. But that's done it's that. Little blip had a lot of people really worried one in which the hospitalizations never went up. And if they do go up it will be by. Miniscule numbers were trending down so this rhetoric you can take them throw it in the garbage house. Republican leader hugh mckean said. He contacted his doctor. Ask whether he should get the vaccine ahead of the session. Given the potential for exposure in the capital if it's necessary mccain said he quote would rather the people who need it more than me. Take it i advise to my members has been. They need to consult what their physician and determine what their risk level is. The loveland lawmaker said monday. And if they want to take advantage of the vaccine or it's really up to them. Sage nominee spokesman for republicans in the colorado senate so the caucus was not consulted about making the vaccine available to lawmakers. So not only are we. We have terrible rhetoric when we do talk but apparently sometimes you know the left and the right. Don't even talk. The decision to be offered. The vaccine was not our caucuses choice nor were. We asked for of our opinion before the decision was made he said in a written save it. Our members have been encouraged to speak to their doctors and come to their own private medical decision. The vaccine is also being offered to credential journalists who regularly cover the colorado legislature including to colorado sun reporters. They had to put that in there. as a disclaimer. But i don't understand it. They're playing a game right now. That that i hate to be completely honest and i. It's just been fan not a fan what's going on there at all So anyways i'll leave it at that. That's one that. I could go on for a while about and and i think that's pretty blatantly obvious about it. Ten thirty one the time when we come back on the other side we'll talk with kevin schafer caught a prep Colorado preps network.
