"China market 'cause y'all Ming and his plate at plane days there and what was interesting is that was the only thing I thought of one hundred percent accurate on that forecast it really decimated the NBA's business in China. What I didn't see happening was all the fumbling and bumbling. Of Responses by other NBA personnel and various people around the NBA business in regards to whether they supported their morts freedom of speech and for cement rights or whether they weren't on board with him and they wanted to distance themselves. It was all kinds of craziness that was going on with a very misdirected misguided various forms of responses to it and the American public woke up to that. And they said, wait what is the NBA doing here like this is obvious Daryl Morey said something we all believe in. But why are they now backtracking retreating from this? This makes no sense and that's when journalists finally started picking up what had been going on for a long time between the NBA and China and now we're seeing today with Moulana and Disney the same tab near with Hollywood. So. So essentially, and I've said this before the Chinese Communist Party is almost they have the final stamp of approval on. So much of the social. Type of content that is produced from Hollywood and from the National Basketball Association, you call this the trillion dollar dilemma. Is it really that big of a issue for the biggest business especially Hollywood in the National Basketball Association of TRILLION DOLLAR DILEMMA. If you look at the amount a trade going on between the two countries and the amount of growth that are corporations are essentially riding. On in regards to what their stock market values are. You can add all that up and it's billions and billions of dollars and well surpasses the trillion dollar mark. So it's major major business. So the idea of decoupling fully from China is a major hit to American corporations and one that has to be really thought about before we really embarked on going full blown in that direction..
Rocky Road with Science Diction
"Both Fenton's and dryers have pretty straightforward stories for how they invented rocky road in dryers version. It was William Dryer himself who one day in nineteen twenty nine did to make an ice cream with nuts chocolate and marshmallows but at the time, marshmallows did not yet come in small versions that came in cheats. So he took his wife's picking shears and cut the marshmallows into four pieces and then stuffed in the ice cream and Taba rocky road was born dryer says the name was meant to quote give folks something to smile about in the face of the Great Depression. According to Fenton's it was a candy maker on staff who came up with it story goes one day. He was making a candy bar with you guessed it nuts chocolate and marshmallows, and he was like you know what would be a great idea is if I put this candy bar in the ice cream and he did it and it was hit via end, the rest is history for over two years. Elissa tried to find out who's story was true. She turned up alleged confession a denial of that confession just a whole lot of ice cream fueled drama more on that from Elissa later because it turns out that people have a lot of feelings about rocky road. Would Weird Al do attribute to Vanilla. Vanilla is the definition of boring and it has a boring name to go with it. But Rocky Road Sounds Fun playful even somehow delicious which it shouldn't it is a road with rocks in it But when it comes to food names, it's not just what the word means. It's how it sounds. It's something that linguists and food marketing types seem to understand very well. At my little grocery store here in San. Francisco. In my little neighbourhood of Brunel Heights Dandruff ski is a linguist. He wrote a book called the language of food. And I was just scanning the cracker aisle and I noticed that every single cracker name had an in it and I was like something's going on here. So I started really from the cracker aside and I thought well, what's the opposite of crackers but that would be ice cream Dan decided to run a little experiment he went online downloaded eighty-one ice cream flavors from brands like Ben and Jerry's haagen-dazs. Then he went to a diet website downloaded six hundred cracker brand names and he noticed a pattern it had to do with the vowels I just counted how many of these ice creams versus crackers which one had more front vowels like e or Which one had more back vowels like you're all and there was a striking difference. Alright. So Front vowels the E in cheese the IT. Feel higher tongue moves. When you make those sounds, you're kind of lifting at toward the front of your mouth. Cheese. Now, say chocolate Mousse. Those words are full of back. AL's pay attention to your tongue again, chocolate. Mousse. This time it's hold more towards the back. Then discovered that the cracker names had nearly all front vowels. Vs and is. So. That's your cheeses and wheat thins and Krispy triscuit crisps chicken in a biscuit. But the ice creams that's back vowels at your your Jamaica Almond Fudge chocolate, your Caramel, your cookie dough, your coconut, and your rocky road. So

"Right our buddy Chris Fenton is back with us this morning. partly because he's got a new book. That's coming out next week and just for somebody who may not know. Chris is a guy that started out as a waiter at the olive. Garden worked his way up to Hollywood agent, and he represented the likes of Snoop Dogg and Scott Weiland of T. Then work that into becoming a movie producer as either produced or supervised twenty one different films, including iron man three has made two billion dollars worldwide, but maybe more important than that is off the air before we hit the radio here. This morning mentioned that he was watching cool beans movie review of the Vagina Den tod movie called Teeth, and that's what really matters right Chris was that that was an excellent review. I gotTa Say I. Forgot What Cool Beings rating was. It was something like it didn't make me mad. So good well honored to be on the show after that put it that way so I'm sure cool beans honored to have famed movie producer like yourself. Who's listening to her reviews so it? I think it goes both ways. by the way, how was the how the rest of your vacation go? It was fantastic. I forgot how much I miss Colorado I found out. My son cannot stand heights or mountain driving so like it was half of it was torture boat. He and my wife, or not huge fans of it, so my daughter, and I'll go back some time. Wow, well, welcome back and back to the grind. It's good to hear from you man. We're excited. This book is almost out. Yeah! July twenty eight Tuesday. Yeah, you know. Know it's funny. I was looking at by my promotion schedule and I I saw that this show was coming up and it made me so excited because I'm I'm so used to getting on these shows and and having to talk about you know this more of that expert. China stuff, and and of course yeah, I have some of that applied practical experience, but I love to be more entertaining than that, and and when I go on. On Adam, Corolla or come on a show like you guys, you know I get to have a lot more fun and the book itself is exactly that right? The idea was to create this sort of Michael Lewis Memoir of my experiences working between the US and China in the sports space in the Hollywood space and bring in like my office wife, and bring in my young kids and bringing friends that were sort of my Yoda's through. Through the experience and and really try to allow the reader understand. Hey, this could happen to you. I mean you could have been me that just somehow fell into the space between the war of capitalism, two superpowers, and and try to draw the reader infer through a very entertaining and engaging story, and then the goal of it is obviously when they finish the book. They learned a couple of things. We've gone nothing but hard news here. Let me set it off for a little bit for somebody who doesn't know so Chris. Fanton is with us and what you heard obviously is book. It's called feeding the dragon and Chris was a was an agent for a long time, and so there's fun stories about those days working with musicians, and obviously people in you know TV and and movies. And then he just as he mentioned sort of became this conduit to getting movies made and China's. That country started to be more open. Open to having American culture, you know within their borders and some of the stories about movies that you've talked about, give me some examples of what has been done with a movie that was done for you. Know Acceptance in China first of all. When you change a movie you're always trying to make the movie better, and you're trying to make the movie if you're implementing China relevancy into you're trying to make it so that people imperial and the way in and Argentina and Germany. Notice, the extra China relevancy that you're using the placate the Chinese market One one movie that we did and I think it was something that we talked about earlier. offline was point break We did the remake point break. I'm sorry to everybody out there that we did do that. It wasn't great, but we actually made a lot of money in China, but one thing that we were trying to do is come up with a really good seen in China. that we could shoot there and use the showcase something. Was Really excited about Chinese Communist Party so. We had this idea with point break where we were going to actually shoot the cold open in a high rise like a hundred and fifty stories above the Pudong district in Shanghai, they have these mass ability, and some of the tallest wins in the world, and at the top of the building was a diamond dealership, and what happened in it actually happened in the movie, but it didn't happen in Shanghai, or these motorcycle guys. He's Robin Hood Characters you know the Robin Hood. Characters from the original point break brought to life in a new terrible remake They come up the elevator. They drive through this diamond dealership on this top floor. They grand sack. Sack grab every diamond. And then they drive straight out the top window of that building, and they have parachutes right and they escape, and the cops don't get them and their parachuting down, and of course since the Robin Hood Characters, they release all the diamonds to the streets below Shanghai and all the poor peasants of China pick up the diamonds, and it's great for everybody right well when we rian that Pie, the CCP the authorities that oversee how the censorship and what you're doing with these movies. They said no, no, no, you can't do that and we said well. Why is that and they said well first of all they would have never gotten. All the diners are police would have caught them. And then number two is even if we didn't catch, them will eventually catch them, but even if we didn't catch them, and they released all the diamonds nobody on the street below would have gathered those diamonds because those diamonds weren't there, and that's not what the Chinese people do. Filmmakers loved the idea so much that they ended up using it, but we shot in Germany instead. What's fascinating to me about that is obviously the scene was initially put in to try and impress the Chinese I I can't. Can't imagine how shocked everyone would have been when that was shot down for those reasons it. It's Hilarious to me. This is Chris Fenton. He's got a book that it's about a lot of things having to do with movies and the NBA, and how business works and other countries specifically China. Is there anything that's like a definite? No go when you have a movie or a director and there's a theme or there's a an overriding element that you immediately well, we just we can't do it in China. One hundred percent, the original remake of the movie Red Dawn, essentially the United States got invaded by the Chinese army and the Wolverines the the rag tag group of whatever there were ten of them ended up defeating the Chinese army and. The C. C. P. Found out that movie was made.

"Get banned from that market, not just for that one movie, but for every movie you make from then on, that's fascinating and I. Know that there's even more to that that I WANNA dig into. We gotta take a break here. I know it's not unusual for movies to require you to change parts of them for consumption in their country. but I. Know China has taken a step further, and they want to change it for everybody around the world, and I want to get into that Chris Fenton is with us. He's a movie producer now an author. His book is coming out next week. We're going to chat some more with him coming up next. We're still joined on the phone by well. Agent Producer, author Chris Stanton. We talked about it earlier, but. He's written a book which comes out Tuesday so timely. And just a regular guy started out in the mail. Isn't that old story was a waiter at Olive Garden and then started out in the mail room and a big Hollywood agency, and eventually became an agent for snoop Dogg and Scott Weiland and then became a producer of movies and has produced or supervised twenty one different films, grossing two billion dollars worldwide through that so when it became an expert on getting movies made in China. China through a company that he was working for and So that's part of what the book is about, but he covers the NBA and all sorts of stuff and sort of in general sort of. How did I get here? You could do the same thing type of deal. And in the last segment we were talking about how it's not unusual for another country to want a production house to change movie for their country. For whatever reason whether it's religion or some sort of nudity or whatever it may be? And China's the same way, but the interesting thing about China that I think is different from everybody else's. They want you to change it. For everybody. In other words if there's something in the movie that has to do with China, it's not just about how they show it in their country. They want the whole world to see it. The way they want you to see it and Chris I. Don't think I'd ever heard of this right. That's unheard of. I've written a couple op-eds about that subject to and and Senator Ted Cruz a bill to the floor about trying to curb any US cooperation on a movie. That satisfies the CCP directive of censoring something outside of their boarder, and he used the latest top gun movie that's coming out from paramount and sky dance as an example, because there's a flight jacket that Tom Cruise wears in that movie that had the Taiwanese flag on it now as you know, China sees Taiwan as China, so there is no taiwanese-flag in. In their minds, so they said Studio Take that flag off studio of is like okay. Yeah, that's fine. We'll take it off for the China market. That's very very common, okay, censoring within borders, but censoring outside the borders what the EP wanted. They're like hey. Taiwan doesn't exist, so that flag doesn't exist. Take it off the jacket. No matter where it's shown around the world, and that is a big problem in my head, and it's the same thing we saw with the Darrow Maury. Tweet on the NBA side right. He was on. On their soil, he was not at the dinner party, saying in somebody's house at the MEATLOAF sucked. He was outside of the country and said Hey I. Support the Hong Kong protesters. He has every right to do that in the country. The United States of America and the CCP said Hey. We don't like what you said. In your country under your laws, but for our laws we are banning NBA and everything else that you guys are doing there for an extended amount of time talking to a movie producer now author Chris Fenton. Fenton, he's got a book called feeding the dragon coming out. It's interesting, because obviously you reference it. In many cases, I have a feeling I know at least in a couple when this issue comes up for a movie the movie if they're okay with it will change the Chinese to the North Koreans, which is another country. Obviously, that is repressing their people. However, they're not spending the kind of money. That China is spending so therefore. They're kind of dispensable right. It doesn't matter what you say about north. Korea, but it matters. Matters what you say about China, because there's a lot of money to be made there, my point is hey. Look at the CEO Disney. If the CEO of universal comes out in support of Hong Kong. That's the we'll just simply get fired and replaced by somebody else. If Lebron James comes out, and says something and support a Hong Kong he will be eliminated from the China market, and then another player will just take his place. What we need to do is have rules of engagement that every company every C. Suite executives. Executives. Every different entity that SONA product and service in that country has to live by. We just need rules for the road. Right we just. We can't constantly be like Oh. Yeah, we'll do that. 'CAUSE we'll make more money. We need to think about national security entrance. We need to think America. I I'm sorry. I'm a little rea- teen away from the entertaining side of woody and Wilcox, but it's a really important message and I know your listeners are totally engaged in lots of local issues that are going on and if If you dig deep on some of that stuff if you see bare shelves at a Walmart during the Cova crisis, you know that somewhere in there China had something to do with that, and that's the issue that we all need to talk about openly. We're talking to Hollywood agent movie, producer and author Chris Fenton. Lebron James I. Think one of the things that and I don't give this much thought, either. We all kind of know for example, using Lebron James makes a ton of money and is a ton of endorsements here. Here a lot of those guys, even people in the movies right like a Brad Pitt, or whatever do they not also have endorsements from Chinese companies? There are massive massive deals. In fact, there are probably a number of NBA players that make more money from the China market than they do in the united. States, that's simply how big that market is. There is a lot of hypocrisy I. It's just impossible not to admit that, but the hypocrisy can only be addressed if we all are in it together. The whack a mole. Version of it just doesn't work, and it's where China will you know ultimately defeat us if we can't come together. I mean we're we're. In numbers here and we need to be unified on this. And for thirty years we really got carried away with this rampant globalism mission, which by the way I'm completely guilty of in very complicit of and very open and honest about in the book, but now that you look back at it, you realize. Oh, we were. We thought cigarette. Smoking was actually healthy to us, but now we're realizing that gave us cancer Maybe it wasn't that smart. Maybe we should. Should think about quitting. I mean that's essentially what happened. Is.

So MGM and Sony had to go and re cut the movie and create this new North Korean army that was the the center villain in the film, so don't defeat the Chinese army and a movie. If you actually want access to that market, and and if you do, you might actually.

D. this is a team that doesn't have a lot of wiggle room cap wise to make deals to bring in other players you know that it's it's a hard ceiling in the NHL with the salary cap so to be able to get production from a stall a suitor a Parisi that bodes well for Minnesota's Zach Parisi by the way third on the team in scoring their top three scorers are are the veterans stall so room Parisi Jason Zucker is a young guy who's battling that injury that we know he's fourth right now with with points but none the less the wild have made a dramatic turn around I

How silly this because they got well reviewed later on early on the got killed? This one was legitimately had like a cool dragging dragging a Volvo. Cross a street one of your neighbors Chris. Morgan wrote it. And so you know. Oh He's quite a writer when it comes to these movies. Oh yeah he's great and Ritz. Who Produce Swat? Oh really coming coming full circle that Chris Right this one he wrote this. This is this is definitely one of the best written ones out there. And it's funny. I always said like Kane from Kung Fu for guy never wanted any trouble. He sure found a way to kick the shit out of everyone in the town. He went into Vin diesels. All about family. Yeah Or. He's all about Boston orbital sockets he's super indefatigably and then he beats the shit out of everybody you normally guys at a very family oriented a and they don't ball up the fist never but he's either given speeches on the port of family and the speeches hashing people over the head have a crowbar to toggle. Switch to Justin Lin directness. Yes I have a number all right. Let's see I think I think the critics started to like this one for what it was the next one of Paul Walker dynacast. After that are he died filming the yeah because number eight was the most recent one right. All right I'm in you guys in sixty eight. I think the critics on board at this point I said eighty. Oh my God I I said barely fresh sixty five. Yeah it went sixty seven fast. Five is certified for at seventy seven. Aw Guy you know. We don't do the premature celebration. Because all you gotTa do is get to sixty here to be refresh seventy seven goods pretty good how we look it up. The previous one was pretty like pretty low rated at some point critics jumped on board and finally from from our more recent Christian. Bale movie round. We offer this post apocalyptic challenge long. Before game of thrones was uh-huh Yeah Yeah Christian Bale and a Bald Matthew mcconaughey took on an army of dragons in the two thousand two pyrotechnic action flick. Rain never heard of this. Oh yeah the made a COUPLA dragon movies and made a couple of volcano movies like hey that came out around the same time. Unlike Selma's like hey. We need fire to movies where they're coming from the ground and then two movies where they're coming from the sky and they made a couple of dragon in movies and in the kind of the same time period all right. Brian is doing well. Everyone's doing well but that first one that really got me off over the border all off equally. The I had forty and the thirties. So we're not okay. So maybe a quick anecdote here actually covered Disney at the time when spyglass us was doing this movie. And they made a twenty million dollar offer to Arnold Schwarzenegger to come out of it tank with a cigar to beat the crap out of these dragons and then when he passed they made a twelve million dollar offer to Sean Penn and he passed on it too so it alternately became mcconnahey right good little factoid. I I love to steer people wrong with our line. I've never seen this movie nursing this movie. Will I heard it's very cool. I wouldn't say it was pretty pretty solid. Oh my God I I am going forty nine.

The company declined an interview request but in a statement L.. Era Forcefully denied the allegations and says it will appeal. The New Hampshire cease and desist order other healthcare sharing groups say Elliot's actions are harming the reputation of the broader industry these ministries have seen rapid growth in recent years in part because of their lower cost.

Dark Web vs. Deep Web
"Into that let's get into the dark web because the dark web is shocking will tell you about that in just a moment but first there's the World Wide Web that's what all of issues you know W. W. W. you're on the worldwide web then there's the deep web and the dark web is not the deep web the deep web is any part of the internet that is it discover a bull by search engine I think that's the best way to say it yeah so for example you're on your banking site and you log in if you've navigated to a specific location on line that particular place online that is your account is not served up in Google results you go to your health care provider and you want to see the results of your last lab test that's not going to show up on on a Google search or whatever surgeons you're using so that is the deep web so we got the worldwide web the deep web I hope I I hope I'm doing you know your yeah you're you're you're putting it in the picture together perfectly then you've got the dark who had been this is I mean these are the blackest of waters folks the dark net the dark web this this is the peer to peer network whereas with this is this is where you find the kind of market places that ply their trade in illicit wearers these are basically hidden crime bazaars they can only be accessed through special software that obscures one's true location on line it's real this is not how good it if the I would say Katie I'll get your take on this I would say the dark web's much much larger than the W. W. W. dot web well you know that there there's a picture that goes around it's like the tip of the iceberg as the W. W. W. realm and then it that giant piece that you can't see above water and that's the rest of the internet it's the dark web so the dark web if you're on the dark web if you're using a crypto currency to do business that's what you do it's not you know it's not the dollars and cents it's a crypto currency and because there's so much money to be made on the dark web both legitimate and illegitimate are using these crypto currencies the one you've heard of probably is bit coin bit coin what did you say one bit coin is worth now ninety five hundred Bucks so crypto currencies these are decentralized virtual currencies that run on peer to peer computer networks big coin the largest the most traded so the crypto currency is digital it's a digital for money there's no central bank there's no central repository the money flows in and out of the system through the use of users computers it went you know as I think about it remember Napster Napster's going back but this is Napster was unique because you could trade MP three songs and videos here it only lasted a few years late nineties early two thousands that's exactly how crypto currency works your currency transactions are verified using super high powered computer equipment and it's all done on the dark web now this is the shocking part is Katie and I've gone there didn't purchase anything we just looked around and it was one of the creepiest experiences that I've ever been a part of I mean we're right here in the studio name a place on the internet where you can purchase a hit man for crying out loud yeah this was not a joke now and and and HK forty sevens and heroin I mean you name it you can buy it there it's a whole the hit man thing was again you're thinking come on this is it this is a joke no it was this was for real it was for this is that the types of drugs that are easily found and purchased on the dark web all the purchaser needs is a cryptocurrency use the big corn you get an address to ship your drug of choice and of course you need the computer smart phone and once you find what you want you literally click and by and proceed to check out just like you're on Amazon it's just it it's wild the way that this it and it's so easy to access it's so easy once you I mean once you I mean you can look at a you tube video how to access the dark web and I'll take you through it so you've got you've got the drugs and you've got the sax and you've got they they hit man and what's what's amazing is with the drugs you can have these drugs discreetly shipped directly to your home the U. S. P. S. literally they're using the postal service for this yep you can get all the stuff guaranteed delivery within twenty four hours this is how Fenton all comes in and out of the country major driver of the current opioid crisis in America it's all happening via the dark web where they'll legal firearms come from yeah I'm sure the FBI you know they they're not dummies they're getting involved but again this is such a dark and creepy part of our our world four one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred I'd love to hear from you about this four one five eight zero eight fifty six hundred but police agencies you know there trying to get involved because well is it and and and the other thing that Steve Steve you must which was making with us earlier tax attorney not all crypto currency users are criminals I have to make that clear but there is a lot of crypto currency involved in various crimes and that's was just absolutely shocking so it's a part of our world that is gaining in popularity and it's a part of a world that stinks I mean it's just putrid
