A Prayer for When the Pressures of the World Weighs on You
"Even though the pressures of looking a certain way change with the seasons, that does not mean their effect on our psyche is any less damaging or intense. We see that in the number of depression cases, bullying, and even deaths by suicide in teenagers today. Whereas the world is a liar and flighty, we know that our lord and savior Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life. He has always constant. He is always loving and always faithful. We know that our lord looks at the heart as the standard of beauty. Scripture tells us that the lord chose a small young David out of his physically strong and older brothers to be the king of Israel. God also reveals to David in the psalms, how he creates each and every one of us. He tells him that we are carefully created. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. The fact that our souls are the ones that will exist after death, and our physical bodies will die and turn to dust, shows how much our character our personality and a soul that chooses the lord for Salvation matters above our physical appearance. Let's pray. Dear lord, I know that the world speaks loudly and convincingly that the only thing that matters is the way we look. In any other message is patronizing and the lie. But I pray that your message about our inner beauty and intricate creation will overcome the lies of the world. I pray that everyone knows how beautiful they are inside and out. That the mechanics of human attractiveness is far different than narrow and shallow narrative of popular culture. More, be with young teenagers and adults who are inundated with images deemed as beautiful and acceptable in today's society. I pray that they know your truth and hope for a better tomorrow that is not dictated by social media. I pray for their parents that they have the right tools to navigate their children's anxieties perceptions and mental health. I pray that we all know who we are created by and how we were created. We pray for your guidance and overwhelming presence as the world tries to yell, lie, and manipulate us into looking a certain way to be happiness successful. Help us drown out the voices that come to steal, kill, and destroy. John ten ten. We love and trust you with all of our hearts, our lord, our God. In Jesus name, amen.

The Latest Hunter Biden Developments Are Absolutely Stunning
"Story is absolutely stunning to me. If you needed any evidence that the Biden family aren't just corrupt, but traitorous, this story does it. That laptop from hell is causing some real damage to the Biden family. So the media would love you to be focusing on Trump and desantis and everything else they don't want you to focus on the border crisis. They don't want you to focus on, you know, lord forbid, you know, a bank collapse, all right? They don't want you to focus on any of that stuff that the Biden administration is causing and the damage that they're doing. So they stay fixated on former president Trump. Partly because they are scared of them, and they hate them, but also because it's an easy distraction because they know that most people have some type of emotional connection to Donald Trump, either they absolutely love them, or they absolutely hate them. I don't think there's a lot of people that are that are in between, but you know, but maybe, yeah, okay, I take that back. I'm sure there's some people that are in between, but nonetheless, this story is one of the most damaging stories that I've read. I want you to hear this audio clip. A Miranda Devine was on Fox News last night, and I want you to hear what she has to say about this. This is absolutely insane. This takes this family from corrupt to straight up traitorous. Audio clip number three popov Chan. Actually bizarre. I mean, it's another bizarre twist on an already bizarre story about the Biden family and the cast of characters involved in their influence peddling scheme around the world. And doctor gal loft is the latest one. He is an Israeli energy expert, a professor, he was arrested in Cyprus as you said, and is still in a Cyprus jail. He's charged apparently with gun running and Farah violations and various things. And he claims that he is innocent and that he's only been arrested to shut him up about what he knows about the Biden family business. And you know, a lot of his story does check out. He is regarded in his orbit in Washington, D.C. as, you know, he's well regarded. He's a legitimate energy expert. He's a former high ranking officer in the Israeli defense force. He has multiple degrees and he also talks about this FBI mole that he claims Hunter Biden used to tip off his Chinese partners that there was an FBI investigation into them. And there is some corroboration of that from the reporting that we've already done from the laptop. We know that Hunter Biden did have contacts within the FBI. We know that he used them to benefit at least one of his Chinese business
Levin Called Into Radio Shows as 'the Matzah Ball Kid'
"Interesting is I was 14 15 years old I used to call into bob grant's program on WABC and WOR and when he was thrown off those stations and he was on an FM station a very good F sub station WWD be at the time In Philadelphia and he was a dear dear friend But Bill corsair who is a dear friend to this day and he went to the radio Hall of Fame event in 2018 when I received the voted into the Hall of Fame and I want to thank everybody who did that And he had a show called the little rascals You know like the TV show but it wasn't really like it It was on from about midnight to 5 in the morning I love this show It was a really we the people show and people were really characters of themselves And he spoke to them with respect No I don't always but you understand He spoke to them It was a lot of fun So I call them And I became I gave myself a name Did I ever tell you what it was mister producer The matzo ball kit Why I don't know I don't know And he couldn't have been nicer but I used to take the phone you know it was on a very long wire take it all the way upstairs because everybody was sleeping And it was literally a dial phone back then Like I say this is 50 years ago And I would die and die on that and then wait on the last number or letter to dial Sometimes you'd get clicked off before you did not by him but by AT&T but sometimes just in the Nick of time I would get in there

Roger Stone: 'Ron DeSantis Has Shown Himself'
"Love talking to you, roger. You're fun. But you're also such a truth teller. I got to ask you, it's always annoying to me to see it's annoying to me to see Ron DeSantis looking like he's going to run for president against Trump. But it's equally annoying to me that Trump is kind of taking the bait and doing the Trump thing and dumping on him. I think it hurts Trump. Where are you in the middle of this? Well, first of all, make a suggestion to you. I know things are tough there in New York. Maybe if you showed your books in the background when you did a show to kind of, you know, product placement to kind of suddenly push book sales. I've read your book letter to the American church. It's really a great book and everyone should order it immediately. Well, you know what? I will take that advice under consideration. My team doesn't want me to be too forceful in pushing my books because they don't believe in my books as strongly as you do. So thank you for saying that. Michelle bachman also also likes my books. Let me address your question, please. One of the advantages of everything is that Ron DeSantis has now shown himself in his attack yesterday on Donald Trump. What was the attack? He basically questioned his moral character, which is funny because the governor was not questioning Trump's moral character when Trump unilaterally endorsed him in a tweet, which turbocharged his campaign and elected him governor. He wasn't questioning Trump's moral judgment when Trump had to come back to Florida twice in the final two weeks of 2018 to drag Ron DeSantis across the finish line. She ranked attendance is not a likeable fellow. I think he's what you would call a cold fish. He wears ear buds to avoid human contact because he doesn't like to speak to people. He is a largely, I think, driven by his wife, correct me wrong. Wasn't it evil said to Adam bite that Apple? I think it was.

Sean Spicer on His New Children's Book "The Parrots Go Bananas!"
"We've got a lot to talk about here. You have a book out a brand new book. A kids book called the parrots go bananas, and I believe the parrots were talking about the chattering classes, the mainstream media, the blogosphere, they go bananas because they know Trump is going to have another term. Is that what the children's book is about? Look, that's definitely the none of it. It's about fake news is what it comes down to. The parents basically are part of the folks that go after these two really good individuals, Asher and Bongo, who are just playing a game. They accuse them of cheating. It's for kids four to 12. So we don't get into the heavy stuff here. I gotta be clear. Ladies and gentlemen, I was joking. I have joking. No, I know you know, but just in case anybody's gonna get confused. I'm always half joking. But the point is because I want to talk to you about the preposterous dare I say satanic corruption that goes that's going on right now with the rumors of arresting our president. It's so preposterous, but we're living in crazy times and I have to deal with it by joking. But your book for kids, the parents go bananas, really does deal with actual issues. So talk about that before we get into the news of the day. Yeah, look, I have two 12 year old kids. And I know what it's like for kids to pile on. Something I talked to him, they helped me write the book. I partnered with brave books. You can get it at brain books dot com and the idea is if you think about a Nick Sandman type situation. You remember that he was from Covington Catholic. These kids in the book, these two characters get accused of cheating. Everybody piles on, and they're sitting there saying, what do you mean? You guys know us. We're good individuals. We went to this game and we didn't do anything wrong. And they proved themselves innocent, but at the end of the day, they're trying to teach people about why did you jump to conclusions? Why didn't you take our word on it?

The Intentional Downfall of America
"My question is, do you think that someone is trying to destroy this country because I do? We're being lied to about the border being lied to about COVID or being lied to about inflation or being lied to about these banks were being lied to about gender mutilation being lied to at the border. I don't know if I already said that, but we're being lied to at everything that this administration I'll be listening to you for an answer. Yes, I do believe that there is an intentional effort to destroy the country. They want a different country than what we are living. A different America. Than what we experience. They want a postmodern post structuralist country. With a completely different approach, they want to try to remove and vanquish the promise of the American founding. The promise the American founding is very simple that all men are created equal that there is a creator and you are not him. The power must be separate, separation of powers consent to the governed. Having independent judiciary, and then if you work hard, you're going to be rewarded. And that you're immutable characteristics should not define you. Your agency, your action, your decisions, your merit, your character, that's how we should design a society. That's the promise of America. It's also a country that is not a colony that we should make decisions to serve our homeland over that abroad. We call that America first, it's very simple, unfortunately, our leaders don't understand that. So yes, I do think we're living through an intentional downfall of America.

In Israel, TV's dystopian 'Handmaids' is protest fixture
"It's become an ominous fixture of the mass anti government protests roiling Israel, a coil of women in crimson robes and white caps, walking heads bowed and hands clasped. The women are dressed as characters from Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel, The Handmaid's Tale, and the eponymous TV series. Ahead of one demonstration, the women wrote the train from Tel Aviv to Israel in costume, transforming the cars and the platform into what could have been a scene from the Hulu series. They say they're protesting to ward off what they believe will be a dark future. If the government follows through on his plans to overhaul the judiciary, the founder of one women's rights advocacy

Malinvestment Happens When You Create Trillions Out of Thin Air
"When there is a greater supply of interest to invest than there is a supply of good places or places of value to put your money, you get something called mal investment. Mala investment happens when you create trillions of dollars out of thin air. You invest in a bunch of garbage. Just today, meta, Facebook, slash another 10,000 jobs. Mark Zuckerberg has put a massive bet into the metaverse. Turns out it's a massive failure. People just don't want to put goggles on all day long and play in some sort of weird abstract world of poorly defined characters and figures. It's not a success. I'm sure some people like it. It sure is, it's been, you know, some people are looking at it, but it's by no means a profit driver for the company at all. Nothing even close. So mal investment occurs when you create these trillions of dollars out of thin air. And when you remove the moral hazard and people think they can be forgiven or bailed out, then what difference does it make?
Your Daily Prayer
A Prayer for Endurance
"We humans want answers given problem solved and pain ended. And that's not a bad thing. But sometimes these take time, and we don't like the waiting, we all experience trials and sometimes for reasons and links of time, we may never fully understand this side of heaven. Prayer, therefore, is essential to endurance because it allows the peace of God to surpass our understanding and for our hearts and minds to be protected in Christ Jesus as it says in philippians for 7. Endurance involves time and process. It is hard work, but good work, if in Christ, we let it have full effect. It is producing in us faith and character that withstand the wear and tear of life. There isn't a quick fix or alternate route to get from point a to point B in these matters. We can't go around it or skip steps we must simply persevere our way through it. However, when we let God work in our hearts along the way, we don't arrive at point B the same person we were at point a. We will arrive changed with our faith strengthened. We arrive perhaps looking a little more light Jesus. God wants to make us mature and complete, lacking nothing. He wants to grow and shape us to be like his son. He loves us so much that he doesn't want us to settle for immaturity or incompleteness. Jesus says and John 1633, you will have suffering in this world, but be courageous, I have overcome the world. Thanks, be to God, that while I don't always understand the method, I can trust the end result in Christ. We can endure all things because Jesus has overcome all things. Let's pray. Father God, you know my heart today and how I am struggling to endure one more moment of this adversity. It feels hard to believe you have good in store for me, but I trust that you are working all things for my good and your glory, strengthen me today. Grow and mature me so that I Latin nothing in my faith, help me persevere, bade me in your love and peace with the suffering waiting and lack of control is hard to endure. Remind me often that Eugene's have already overcome the world, including the struggle of mine. I don't want to resist or reject your work any longer, flood my heart today with trust and peace as I lean in and let you work in my life through the situation in Jesus name, amen.

John Zmirak and Eric Unpack Trump's Promise of 'Retribution'
"Avenge wrongs, we are not talking about sadism. We're not talking about what Hitler did. Hitler wanted his enemies to be hanged with piano wire he wanted them to suffer horribly. And their families, and their families. And their families and he had this filmed so that he could watch it. Now, I want to be real clear. That is demonic and sadistic. I want to be very clear, ladies and gentlemen, that is demonic and that I sadistic. Anyone I know, any kind of Christian would say that that is demonic sadistic and wrong. But for a conversion. Wait, conversely, when we tried the Nazis who did things like that. And they were convicted after having had defense attorney. And laws of evidence. And when we convicted them of war crimes, hanging them for those war crimes was legitimate retribution. Right, but John, we didn't hang them with piano wire. That's right. We didn't torture them. We didn't like their families. So the idea that the person that this Christian who wrote this article, critical of Donald Trump's statement, is kind of pushing Trump and that statement in to the realm of that he wants. He's trying to sadistic vengeance, I want to say ladies and gentlemen, that's sloppy. It's theologically sloppy. It's also a failure to understand political speech and to understand the point this man is making. First of all, think of this. Let's talk about a character issue. When Donald Trump says, I am your justice. I know what he is saying in case people are often just like disgustingly literal, okay? What he's saying is if you install me as your president, I will bring you justice. He's not saying I'm the messiah. And I am justice. Politically, but people just hate him so much that they have to say that he's saying what he's not saying.

The Condimnation of American Medicine
"I'm going actually to a topic that does not seem to be a significant as the Silicon Valley bank explosion and Ukraine and the mutilation of children uniquely are bad in the United States as I read to you from the British medical journal. And I will read more from it. To think that the British medical journal has a lead editorial condemning American medicine, American doctors and medical schools and hospitals for the mutilation of children who say that they are the opposite sex especially girls who are far more common, that is a real blow to the prestige of American medicine. And if you are a doctor and you don't speak out on it, you may be a wonderful father or mother and friend and even doctor. But you failed the test and tests are what talk of our character. Doctors who keep silent in the face. Of what their colleagues are doing to mutilate children. Our failing, the test, not everybody is tested in life, almost everybody is at some point. And I asked Jordan Peterson, do you ever know somebody well if they have not been tested and he said, no, it's an interesting response he didn't think about it. It was an immediate no. You only really know someone when they're tested. It may be true. The only really know yourself, perhaps, if you're tested.

Sebastian and Chris Kohls Review 'Big Trouble in Little China'
"Sit tight, pull the floor and keep the home fires burning. And if we're not backed by dawn, call the president. Well, I might have the president, president's number, but I just need to know. Chris Cole's, will you born ready or you just thrilled to be alive? There's a couple of things that were missed there. Come on, Eric has to sleep sometime. Eric, Eric, what are you doing? No, the best line in the film is, you know, you know what Jack Burton says at a time like this and the guy says, who's Jack Burton? And he goes, Jack Burton, me. I don't know why I always love that life. And then at the end, he's leaving. He's leaving to go back on the road. And Kim Cattrall sitting there looking all sexy, like, you know, you're just going to leave me here. And her friend says, well, aren't you at least going to kiss her? And he just turns to her and he goes, now. It's just what's up. It's like this movie is so crazy. There's so many unexpected moments. It's so funny. I mean, it's really a funny movie. And I don't know, I love that character. He's such a dope, but his buddy, his buddy, who's sincerely a badass. Wang, treats him with the utmost respect. I mean, he said when he's trying to cheat him out of his night's winnings. Yeah, you have that's true, yeah. But throughout the rest of the movie, as they're going out of this adventure, he sort of treats him like he's almost superior to him as a hero, right? And he's got this, he's sort of like AOC. Totally incompetent, but with tons, tons of confidence, you know?

Chris Kohls Talks Kurt Russell's Role in 'Big Trouble in Little China'
"There was nothing. That that's how it always begins. There is more. Fun way to start a movie that's egg Shen explaining after the event who Jack burden is and how much of a hero he is. Why? Because the producer said, he's such a dance. You've got to explain it. Let's put something in after they filmed the movie. They had to be far, Kurt Russell at the beginning of that little clip. Chris, an unusual character. And in the director's voice-over, if you watch it, they keep talking about the fact that other actors are like her also refused to take this part because they didn't want to look stupid and they just have this ego trip too many egos. I guess that doesn't surprise you having worked in Hollywood. No, yeah. People don't want to look bad. People don't want to look stupid. People don't want to look silly. But every once in a while, you just have to go with it and have a little bit of fun. And yeah, Kurt Russell's great. I mean, what a down to earth guy. He doesn't mind being a little self deprecating. The funny thing about this character is it really is over the top, like massively over the top. Everything he does is in that sort of John Wayne kind of attitude, right? There's a slow draw everything. He thinks that he's the hero of this story. But he's not the hero this story is buddy. Yeah, the little Asian guys, the hero. The little Asian guy. Who can kick anybody's butt? He's really the hero. He's got to save the girl. He's got to do all this stuff. Jack Burton shoots some concrete above his head and knocks himself out at one point in the movie.

Disney Pushes 'Wokeness' on Our Children
"So if you listen to that scenario, first of all, these people are all idiotic. And I don't know who wrote the script, but the minds are taking a drink break. But if you listen, you heard a male's voice. I know for a fact you guys heard one male voice. Where there's no male characters. It was a girl that had a male voice. This stuff is like blowing my mind. They pushing racism in that clip, they only like you 'cause you're white. I mean, these little kids, like even in the scenario, they're a little kids. And then they get in the argument and y'all are just mad because y'all, it was one white girl saying y'all to all the black girls that are in the clip. And then one of them started talking and got a male voice obvious little girl with a man's voice. They're pushing racism, sexuality, and all kinds of stuff in this one little clip I'm seeing from Disney. If you don't think they're indoctrinating your kids, you're out of control.

Kudos Disney for More Anti-Whiteness
"In the tease there at the top of the hour, I had made mention about Disney. They have this little program I didn't even take waste my time looking up the name of the particular show, but they had the kids in the show. You got some kids who are not even human beings. They're characters, and somehow they need them to be black and white. They have to look kids in there. And I guess they were going to the prom, somebody asked a little black girl to the prom on a white girl to the prom, one of the two, but I guess the one they really wanted asked the white girl and the little black girl in the scenario said, they only ask you 'cause you're white. Now, it could have been taken out of context and misconstrued, but the context of what I saw in that entire clip seems like they were making things out to be incredibly racist. Incredibly racially biased. And I'm going to say this today like I do every day, we need to stop with the racial BS. You have to be the stupidest person on Planet Earth to still think that people are certain way because of the color of their skin. You have to be stupid at this point. There's no excuse for it. There's no remedy for it. Your mind is gone. You need to repent and pray to God forgive you for you being so doggone crazy and ignorant that you still think because of melanin and somebody's skin that they are a particular way. There are black people that are the most evil people you've ever seen, there are black people that are exceptional. There are white people dead are the most evil people that you've ever thought of and there's white people that are exceptional. You go down a list, you go down the race, you go down, none of that stuff matters, man. Each individual person presents themselves in a unique way.

Ted Lasso Premiere-Lasso intro and wrap
"Jason Sudeikis talks about the future of his character, Ted Lasso at the season premiere in Los Angeles of his comedy series. The premise for Ted Lasso came from a commercial for NBC's soccer coverage, featuring a former American football coach. In London. I mean, that's nuts. Sudeikis says he didn't know where this was headed. You never know what you're going to get to do three seasons. If anything, it was probably maybe presumptuous if not downright arrogant of us to think that if we got to do three. Ted Lasso has been a hit and star Cola bikini says the reason is in part timing. It premiered during the pandemic. It was a really, really tough time. And it was kind of like, you know, a warm blanket, you know, when you're heating out. Jason Sudeikis is not sure there'll be a season four of Ted Lasso, will he miss it? No, it's in me.

"first character" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Dad's name. Except for your dad. But you referred to it in David's. Something of a milestone in crypto enforcement. Why? The first character in the story, Larry, ran what's called a tumblr or a mixer. So basically this is a thing that you can use to if you want to sort of make your cryptocurrency transaction truly private, right? Because you can always see addresses on the blockchain. And if you can kind of stitch together enough information, you can kind of figure out where a bit of Bitcoin came from. There are these services called mixers and tumblers where you sort of like, it's what it sounds like, right? I mean, mixed together a lot of cryptocurrency and then spit them out in different ways so that you can't find it. I'm visualizing pat like a rock tumbler that you had when you were a kid. And I think that's, I don't know, is perhaps that's where the name comes from, right? You put a bunch of rocks in, you let it set for a month. And the rocks that come out look completely different. Yeah. Yeah, I think that's basically right, or you're just sort of, you're stirring everything together so that you can't figure out where they came from. And that's not per se illegal, but as with a lot of things in money wandering, you know, running a secret car wash isn't necessarily legally either, but if you're doing it to hide where the money is coming from, then that's what's happening. So the feds went after our first character, Larry, for basically money monitoring. And then suddenly the money began to disappear, and they started asking, okay, so who's actually taking the money out of it? And ultimately, they decided they've actually accused not Larry, but his brother Gary of doing this. And so can't make this up. Right. Larry and Gary. So Gary is still awaiting trial. We should say. So this is not, this is an allegation, but they're looking at sort of, they've been following the money. Well, speaking of following the money, I can not do an interview with you, pat without talking about this picture of Gary Harmon that's featured in a tub full of money. This is a picture that the U.S. district court for the District of Columbia has. What's going on here? Well, so that's a picture that prosecutors found on his phone. And basically, they were collecting evidence that he had come into money. So they're sort of looking at that and saying, it's like, it looks like this guy suddenly had a fair amount of money. So that's nothing. He's bathing in cash. He's bathing. To be fair, it does look, if you look closely, it's mostly $1

"first character" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Cryptographic private keys. Bitcoin, of course, crypto lives on the blockchain. And if you have the right set of passwords, you can reconstruct all those keys somewhere else. So when the feds basically seized this cache of Bitcoin as evidence in a money laundering case, they knew from the get go that this money was very vulnerable to being taken. So they were kind of like watching on the blockchain, what was happening with these wallets and they very quickly saw those coins going away. So what's also interesting here, so this is a rest. Let's talk about Larry because there are people in the story in crypto are memorable Larry might be one of them. Something of a milestone. Just kidding. My dad's name. Except for your dad. You've referred to it in David's. Something of a milestone in crypto enforcement. Why? The first character in the story, Larry, ran what's called a tumbler or a mixer. So basically this is a thing that you can use to if you want to sort of make your cryptocurrency transaction truly private, right? Because you can always see addresses on the blockchain.

Yeah. Yeah, I think that's basically right, or you're just sort of, you're stirring everything together so that you can't figure out sort of where they came from. And that's not per se illegal, but as with a lot of things in money wandering, you know, running a secret car wash isn't necessarily legally either, but if you're doing it to hide where the money is coming from, then that's what's happening. So the feds went after our first character, Larry, for basically money monitoring. And then suddenly the money began to disappear and they started asking, okay, so who's actually taking the money out of it? And ultimately, they decided they've actually accused not Larry, but his brother Gary, of doing this. And so I can't make this up. Right. Larry and Gary. So Gary is still a waiting trial. We should say, so this is not, this is an allegation, but they're looking at sort of they've been following the money. Well, speaking of following the money, I can not do an interview with you, pat without talking about this picture of Gary Harmon that's featured in a tub full of money. This is a picture that the U.S. district court for the District of Columbia has. What's going on here? Well, so that's a picture that prosecutors found on his phone. And basically, they were collecting evidence that he had come into money. So they're sort of looking at that and saying, it's like, it looks like this guy suddenly had a fair amount of money. So that's not the only thing he's bathing in cash. No. To be fair, it does look if you look closely at mostly $1 bills

"But I remember playing it and being like, oh yeah, this is a video game and then I'm taking it back up again. I think I'm gonna try, I'm gonna try this one. I'm gonna actually try to get into it. I played a little bit of two bless and I was into it. I probably would have stuck around if at the time the servers weren't just like, you know, Nintendo online. Of course. It's not the best. Nintendo needs rollback. Hopefully, yeah. Hopefully splatoon three is a little better with just like being able to play online and stuff. Barret you waking up at 6 a.m. to react to this? Hell no. There's no way. Listen, I did it for Pokémon last week. That's all you got to get anatomy. I am not waking up with splatoon. And you guys want to you can tweet out Andy and Janet see if they want to wake up, not me, though. I will not be here. Let's round out the report report, though, was story number 9. Guilty year strive has surpassed a million sales. This comes directly from a PRES release. Arc system works, oh no, I've lost the Doc. Our system works is incredibly proud to confirm that guilty gear strive has surpassed 1 million units shipped worldwide. In packaged form and download, making it the first saddle sold by arc system works in first in the guilty gear series to reach this huge milestone. Now, of course, this can't include Dragon Ball fighters because we all know that fire is as popular as hell. Drag wildfires was published by gain on a coach, which is why I assume that's not included. But that's huge, right? For both arcs and also guilty year that it is suppressed a million, right? It seems to be the first game in their pocket that is done that well. So good on guilty or strive. It's a very good video game. Yeah, that is insane for a guilty game that previously, you know, you get a couple hundred people entering and stuff like that. They didn't really have the name that she thought it has. Now this thing is exploded, is the biggest game at Evo had double the interest of Street Fighter 5 was at the top spot was the last game of the night. Hitting a million sales is incredible. And for a fighting game, especially within a year's time, that's pretty good. And the fact that they keep continuing the game with patches and stuff like that, we already have on our season two pass. I feel like it must be doing something right that they're so profitable to be making this a million sales is like, even though it's like for other games, whatever. Amelia sounds like whenever I get that for a Call of Duty, then a million in the first hour of the GameStop, right? For fighting games, that's huge. That's really big. In our country is growing. And I'll even push it further and say, our access deserves way more sales. Of course. A talented developer, right? Like this is a big milestone for them, right? And I love that they hit this milestone. They should be selling like, I feel like they should be competing with the street fires of the world and the rest of the world. Of course. You know, Mortal Kombat Street Fighter, those are storied franchises. There's a reason why those sell so much more. But man, arcs, when you're talking about the top tier fighting game developers right now, right? Sits alongside the nether realms in the capcoms. They pretty much anybody else regarding that. And so again, good on guilty here. I hope to see them. I hope to see you in the next guilty year of sell even more. And I hope to see them produce more IP and more games that are able to surpass that because they for sure deserve it with the amount of quality and visual artistry that are in their games. Their games look incredible. They put out some of the best looking games of the year every single year. So good on you, guilty year. They're absolutely beautiful. I played them watching them. If you have it, pick up guilty right now. Go do it. Do it now. Hello. Saint Cola, I'm very excited to see when the next guilty gear ever releases. But that release is just so far away.

"Twenty eleven. yes the jokes. were fun I i definitely poke fun and a lot of people that are in the thing that i find so hilarious and i love telling this part of narrative is my age it and like all the ages her office people that she said this book to like before we sent to editors of stuff and even after we found we were shopping for editors people inside publishing was like nobody wants to hear about publishing. Nobody wants to hear anything about what's going on behind the scenes as i do. Trust me people would love to hear the sanity that you guys are getting into And now when people are now people starting to read the book like everyone loves the publishing stories in the wacky agent and the weird stuff. And so i told him i got a little bit about yourself to my agent on that. It's like see i told you. Love to hear what you're crazy job. And that's i mean i'm an i'm an author. I'm i've been through the pope publishing. I know the stuff. And i'm still fascinated and that was something. I'm glad you brought that up. Because i was wondering do non authors find. This fascinating answered my question. Yeah so far. People have founded really fascinating it really. Which is that was the whole. You know because publishing is esoteric. But i think just the absurdity. I tried to rape those scenes as absurd as possible. And i definitely pushed to level twelve on certain points and really poke. Fun isn't people who hopefully won't come tracked me down to be angry. Because i get you a lot of those scenes as absurd. They are based on real honest guy. Conversations i've had with people and they're all great people so hopefully they'll get angry about it even kelly scenes. Oh dating scenes yes. There's a lot of truth in those dating scene. I'm gonna jump back in here. I've been really enjoying this conversation And it has prompted a of questions. Jason that i have you You mentioned that In addition to the humor. I love the title. Hell of a book but in addition to all that An aunt seeing into a space. The people don't always experience the public space. You talked about how. This is part memoir. Are there any particular sayings That that really were hard for you to write from a memoir standpoint or anything you can tell us that your personal experience that kind of dust show up in the book. Yes and no like so. This is where i'm going to really annoying. You really evasive. That's your that's your prerogative. I just want to go ahead and say it earlier. Just admit and i'm gonna be really evasive. On this part. There were a lot of really difficult scenes to in that in that book Both both from my personal memoir kind of component and then also just from the component of like being able to relate to you know. My father was not shot by police. Bank god But i empathize with people in. It could have been handed could have been me quite frankly. I'm forty three years old. I'm i'm lucky to have made it this far. So so so yes. There were definitely moments that were way personal but i'm not going to nail down exactly which ones are which right now Only because they're you know as an author they're still. I'm still trying to maintain a little bit that vail just kind of a self protection mechanism But yeah so. Yeah there definitely hard moments and hopefully they will find some part of themselves in those moments though had my listeners. All when i heard you mentioned memoir i thought. Take a shot at your. I respect that. I felt i respect that you should get out of that so and since it took you ten years as you said it's the the buck has been in your head for ten years. What do you hope that Readers take away from this out that this book be you know help. It starts in or not starts. There's always the conversation about this about the things within this now. But i hope it adds to in furthers that conversation the national conversation that we have about race and but identity police in interactions between those three. And you know what is to be an american What it means to to to exist in a certain type of body in a country where historically that body has not been treated very well. We'll be delicate and say that way So my hope for the book is that it it finds people can come to it. They can laugh. They can we but they can also leave it thinking when they when they close the book. I want them thinking about something they actually read and want that to move with them as they go forward into the day for however long it can also use the asked this question particularly authors written More than one book. You've written four plus novels now plus the poetry that goes with it so and you may have kind of answered this in in response to ask this question for advice for young riders. But the question. I ask is if you could tell your younger writing. Sell something of value based on everything. You've learned that you think would have helped that younger jason motte through the early writing career Can you boil it down. Anything in particular probably. Yeah probably similar. To what i told alex about be forgiving. But i'll also tell myself to be patient. I definitely underestimated how you're writing takes a long time to learn. It is a much more difficult skill than people. Oftentimes give it credit for And it takes. It just takes longer to learn it really does. and so. When i was younger i was in such a rush to be good at writing and kind of hate it myself for not being as good as i wanted to be. And it wasn't that i was not capable of doing just haven't had time is it's like logging flight miles. If you're trying to be a pilot like you just need time. The seat and you need a lot more hours in seat. You need assess they tell myself that you're as just just be patient. Just get more time in the seat and enjoy the time that you're having like don't don't rush for the next thing enjoy where you are. Whatever stage you're at and you're writing enjoy that and just get the time in the seat. That is really great advice. Something that Myself included probably a lot of people out there. Patients is one of those those things that's hard to master really In fact i had a state berry on e. he's only sold two hundred and fifty million books worldwide and asked him. I said well you know. Tell me about your path. He said well. I was a overnight success but it took twelve years. Sounds about right. That sounds about right. Yeah so as long as we keep that in mind you know. You can be an overnight success. It's just gonna take more than ten years to do it exactly exactly. Oh there's been a great conversation alice.

"Raising ed zona exactly raising arizona was definitely one of the big ones for me. outcome a corn brothers fan as well. Yeah i find him to be just instantly fascinating and not from the you know not from the tongue in cheek way that most find fascinating But i do find him just truly fascinating in that he. Someone who feel like live life on his own terms like the roles picks 'cause they do they swing from brilliant too literal. What did i just watch And he he's right there for all of it something about that. Someone who can take ownership of their life and now they're like how how they are perceived by others because you own your perception in the world. I find it to be really fascinating thing i think. So that's why. I just love him. His ability to just eliza his skin fully and he owns his identity fully. I find this really fascinating which was the theme of the book which the character and hell of a book is having duality and he has Attachment disorder or the or your. You're you have a psychic break of you don't know what's real and that. He couldn't own the past because he denied the past but his mind was denying it. It wasn't and he was. He's a kind person you can see like. I can't help everybody at once. I can't help all the homeless people. I can't help everybody. We like when he meets that the older lady in the elevator you know he says he says i want and then they talk about the tragedy and they said i want to feel for these people and i want to say bye to her and maybe i'll see her. You know i'll never see her again. But that's the way that life is. It's not like. I don't wanna see her again and i love how you said that because i've had some people say i'll never see that person again in a spirit of meanness and right away. I knew this character had a good heart from from that phrasing that he couldn't he couldn't in cats late everything but he was trying. Yeah i think that's part of the character's struggle and that's part of my struggle as as trying to tell the stories like you know the character hit the character himself he wants to. He wants to help everybody. He wants to kind of be all things to everyone and the reality that he cannot do it is part of what causes him so much pain and grief and even from a writing standpoint part y you know i fought with the novel at times was because the novel was trying to do so much and i was like no. You can't do that. Just nail it down to one thing in. The novel refused that and said no. We're going to keep trying to like cover all the bases and hit all these things and make them all important because it is like even with this novel. When i finished the book and even if we have found an agent asia love to obviously we found a publisher for everything was going great I told my agent was like there's still so much more that i wish had made it into this now but they're still so many other topics i want to talk about is so many other things that revolve in the same kind of sphere that it just wasn't room for him in that book and so so i. I understand the author of the novel very clearly. Obviously chasing did a great job. I thought you you covered a lot. Took a tough job. South job and one of my other questions was we have. I love superheroes and comic books. And a lot of times the author as The off of the character of the author as a little boy he escapes through through carrot through heroes and find out that soot has magical power to become invisible and that's his superhero skill. So my question is your other. Were are magical realism horror. And how how. Would you categorize this book because it is real life horror and magical realism and also elements of the superhero. Yeah i'm not. I'm not sure how to qualify. How to actually kind of funny because like that's a question i've had from a few people's like how do you you know what boxes book fit in in a magical realism high-concept. Know whatever. You wanna call it that genre. I think that holds a lot of the book But it is part memoir like that. That is a hard truth to say like there are parts of these characters. In parts of their stories that are blatant memoir lace. Is me telling the story of the scene to happen to me. And i'm just describing it using his characters a very thin veil So you know it. Yeah so i don't know yet. As far as how do what. Bob put in I think whatever box the reader finds that they want to fit in for themselves. I think that's where it Publishers will say is fiction guerrillas realism. Whatever you wanna call genre. I just gotta say we're maria wants to put it. That's where it belongs this. Who are your favorite authors from classic Nineteenth century twentieth century. Twenty first century. That have influenced you and have helped you grow as an author. The biggest one is by far. Our john gardner. And william golding. And tony morrison those. Those three are like the touchstones foundations of my writing. and he just wanted to go. John gardner if i remember. Tony morrison a bit like they work in the same circles. There's a lot of lineage stuff following you there And then of course william golding lord the flies a book just go back to yearly in. Just find new amazing things in it. It's amazing how conflict that book is so those are kind of my big three and then there's also a lot of philosophers at a rea- philosophy as she plays a big role in my writing probably more so than people kind of suspects A real lot of marcus aurelius at times A lot of other just really cool obscure weird philosophers do. And what advice would you give to a young author or maybe a young author but Someone who's just starting out trying to get this all together. Yeah the the best advice. I will give you know developing writers. We're going to call young writers. Be kind to yourself be forgiving. Like yeah just. Just be be forgiving yourself. The asked forgiving to yourself as you are people that you love because riders are tyrants themselves like we we abuse ourselves not writing as well as whomever we admire and for not getting it right the first time for having to rise we find so many ways in reasons to pick ourselves apart and yet if it was if it a best friend are significant other our chow our parent who gave us it. Hey reb thing for me. We'll be really polite. We'd be honestly be nice to them. We say hey. It's not working. But i believe you can make it happen. Say that same thing to yourself. Say yes not working yet. But you're gonna get their career. You know if you practice and you take. This aren't very seriously young. Winning putting yet on the end of the senate is such a forgiving thing to do. I think people should do that more often while you started publishing as a poet and he made the leap to fiction. How is poetry helping you know as a novelist poetry poetry such a huge help it poetry forces efficiency and the ability to singley. Summarize a feeling in a in a very small space. And that's just the best thing i think. One of the best things writers can do is like learn not to be long winded and just pair themselves down really say it once say it powerfully once and that's what poetry forces you to learn how to do one of one of my It was so funny your book. I love the. That's when the that's when the milk ended with the oprah leaving.

"Was not in place. So if you see a few things that are inappropriate. It's appropriate to that time really do have to say that's the state of things and it's funny because nothing that understanding i'm not i'm against but i'm also not against if that makes any sense because you know society always goes through these kind of over corrections on both sides of the fence Both liberal conservative. Where you wanna call it. We swing back and forth. This pendulum comes back and forth. So what you're seeing now. Is you know people voices who have not had a chance to speak for themselves. Voices who who's autonomy ages has been taken away by other people. They're planting their flag. And say no. You cannot tell my story only i can tell my story and i think that's a wonderful beautiful down the moment you always want to see in a society in the world and that's a beautiful thing But the pendulum is like one or two degrees to little bit too far. Sometimes like say like you should be able to write like a a white male should be able to write black characters or female characters or whatever you should be able to write the characters that you want as long as you are doing it with a proper authorities intent where you treat a character respectfully treat their story. Respectfully i think that's fine But again different people have different opinions on it. So i welcome other people's opinions and i i think the pendulum will settle in the middle like it usually does and things are going to get back to whatever normal was if we want to say that but hopefully not all the way back to normal because normal was bad sometimes. I think this is a good time for us to hear some of your book. Oh cool cool cool. Y'all got a selection here and actually you pick this out. Which is terrific okay. It's funny because i am still still learning how to show this book to the world because it's been behind the scenes for so long This is actually my. I like sitting reading like probably prime time with it So i'm still learning how to talk about the book and how to get it out there so it's always fun. So this section here is about the boys soot and just gotta recap for people who haven't come to the book yet There's this author on book tour. And this he meets his ten year old kid he keeps seeing over and over and over again. that's the main kind of story line. There's also a secondary storyline that you encounter about this boy named soot who's also around the age of ten and there's some hints as made this character me. They're not hard to tell so. This is the moment that kinda changed sits life sit awoke to blue lights flashing. Around the walls of his bedroom they danced in and out of existence likes ferries. He heard his mother's voice screaming his father's name there was whore in her whales. The sound of things falling apart the sound of dreams breaking sit scrambled out a race to his mother. He hurt she hurt his footfalls on the old hardwood floor without taking her eyes off or whatever it was she was watching outside shouted. Go back to bid please. She wiped her face in stepped out to the front door onto the first step of stairs. She moves slowly by walking along the edge of the world. She carried her hands before both of them aimed at the sky. Please don't do this. She spoke to the blue lights. Shimmering in the front yard sit wanted to follow her. he didn't have the courage to disobey her so he climbed up on the couch.

There are a few big moments in the book. But that one. That sums up a lot of course trying to kind of get to kind of dark tale. That happens now hell of a book. That's that's the name of the book and it's also the name of the characters. The author's books so it's book within a book we don't know the contents of the actual book that's in the book but My question for you jason is. How did you come up with that smashing title. They're very arrogant. Presumptuous title christian. Here's here's a weird weird fact about me. I have yet to title any of my novels. Four novels deep now. And i have yet to give the site on any of them. I try i try really hard to make titles but my agent always hate so my editor always as so i. I've learned sucked titles so as you read the novel you know. There's this running gag. it's meant to be a gag is running gag about how. Oh you wrote a hell of a book. It's a hell of a book admitted. And so that's why the author names his novel. It just becomes known as such a hell of a book in that just comes this joke that comes throughout the novel and some point my agent. Now we're trying to to name this book. And i sent her a list. Fifteen different titles. I can't think of at the time but there were so many other titles. I was like this. They were all really weird and strange and bizarre Am i h it. Goes you just call a hell of a book. Right now said no. I don't want to call it that. Such an arrogant insane title the half for book as she goes it fits perfectly. She's like you know it. And i know it so just go ahead and just do that and we did it just. Yeah so that's how. That's how i came to be. I've never titled a novel that are written yet. So i'm terrible at it. Tell me more about your necklace. Cage fascination i am a long time and card carrying member of the nicholas cage fan club. I have been just as long as i can't remember life without nicholas cage which is weird..

"That was good. Because there's an agent in there and it's so she's so funny sharon agents because what is one are the first days my agent read the book she goes. I love it. Let's let's let's talk about is gonna phone and talk about it and we get on the phone conversation and literally i. She says she go first of all before we talk about the book. Talk about you. And i and how you see ages. Let's talk about. Have i done anything to you that you wanna talk about. Let's this really discuss us. I talk about the book. And i had to reassure i said no. You're a wonderful. Aj accuracy is. I love her so much. Sharon is the character in the novel is this she represents a feeling like a. I think the i think at the entire novel as by impressionist artwork like is not meant to be realistic is meant to give the feeling that i had So i did have some publicist. When i was on tour. Who were very demanding. And like we've got his running gag by having to wear a sport coat to interviews. And there's a whole whole long backstory behind. That just released really silly. Yeah the agent in the novel is not my agent. I'll say that. And be happy to say that i figured as much but you're on a lot of sources of this novel is about truth. It's about pain and that's that struck me. There's the truth of if you're black do you have to talk about the black condition and are you a representative for everybody and the character who is never named in hell of a book Has this ongoing struggle with that. And it's a psychic rake of. I'm not black. Oh i am. Oh how did that happen. And as i was thinking about this book. I remember some of your discussions when you're in person in my book club that your previous novels of there were people of color characters of color in the book but they were never quite identified as black or asian or or hispanic and in this novel. It's very specific For race and i was very happy with that. Because i i said okay. That's that's That showing you know as i know you as a person. Wow i mean that's that's takes a lot of courage we're gonna be talking about this and that was about halfway through the book and then it goes into a deeper dive about Mothers and fathers of lack children and the pain and the suffering and never quite being in your own body and the fear. The fear and i felt James baldwin would have been very proud. So i just i applaud. You and my question here is what was your process of. Combining all of these truths into a seamless whole and the other part is the truth of being an author where you're author a color but do you have to write about black people. I mean if you're not writing about black people reading about white people you know there's this there's this thing that now it's Very much a part of our culture. You have to be writing what you are which you know. That's silly because an author your great author when you can go into someone's head and write about anything. So combining these these elements the the process. They are actually. It was very weird. It's hard to kind of describe what that process was. It was just. It was very organic Because you know the book. The book change book. Changes like when you when you read the book and you come to the project. The book start talking about x. Mutates into talking about why the changes in talk about z. And all these threats to become connected together so it was kind of the same processor writing it. Like i just i think a lot of the times the instinct would be. We'll stop here and just focus on x. And make that the entire course of the novel. But i wanted to capture the fact that like it in human existence in your existence as a black person like that. Duality that you kind of have been your american withdrawal so black american those dual things that you have to kind of carry at all times. You're not allowed to pick one that the one thing that you are you have to be able to navigate both so i wanted to novel to reflect that i want to be the saying. That reflects the mini duality and the changing state of being the fluidity of being a minority in this country. And the way you have to commute times to change and still be able to approach topics intelligently still be to live your life through certain means So i wanted the novelty kind of kind of reproduce that The process which is really long a lot of revisions like say years of writing revising trying to just fine tune things and not the things he too loud. Nothing's too quiet as for that. Duality of like being an author. But i'll be in a black author like that. There's there's a lot of frustration that i had to write through in this novel. Because that's what that's the one of my. Most frustrating points of being an author. Is that when you when you are an author of color or even just a female author of any kind of minority author. You're not allowed to be the author like you just can't be. I know one less happen wherever you go to an interview. They'll they have to ask you. What's it like being a black author. They had they have to ask you. You know and i understand it. Like i really do. There's a part of me. And i've done it myself as a part of me that when you hear a certain voice you recognize. That voice has a history in a background in a perspective. Different from yours. You usually hopefully you want to hear what that different perspective is in there. How their lens seeing your world. You kinda wanna see that here that in town take it in so you ask those questions but i think we often underestimate the you do. Take away from that person's ability to just be the thing that they are and not have it be limited to that box of you're black or you're female or whatever. The minority thing is so i had to write about that and you know the frustrating point. I've had so many weird experiences. I remember when i was on tour for the returned. I was in kentucky at a book fair and the cover of the return has a ten year old boy jacob. He's white he's on the cover and this woman came up to me and she looks at the book and she looks at me. Looks back in the book. She looks at me as she says. The boy on the cover white. It was like well. Let's we had. We had a quick teachable moment. There but like that really sums it up. That sums what it is to be a black author and a black writer. You're not giving the freedom to just be a writer you have to be also in this box and that becomes frustrating. And that's why so. Many black artists left america and went to europe. Yes yes that duality. it's it's painful and And i thought okay. Well that's as. I have authors come on to Wonderland book club. I've learned it's not just minority authors. It's also women and a skinny women writing about fat girls and you're not supposed to say the word fat but you know of of size and we had a whole discussion about that and we had Age we had. I mean it's it's become a little bit too much and one thing. That's blown my mind because i'm writing historical western fiction. Is the the disclaimers now. Well this book was set in eighteen fifty when there were not Politically correct You know move. This politically.

Osborne to welcome jason to the show jason. Welcome to the show so to see here. Thanks for having me. I'm really excited to be here. I'm excited to I'm a fan of your work. And we've known each other as colleagues for a long time man and i in You've come to my wonderland book club a few times. And in those sessions we get to be very real with other authors readers. And that's why. I feel like i have some insight into hell of a book i've As i was always reading your home town of bolton plays a role as a major character and you are Revealing about what. It means to be a black man. In america. the character who is never named in the book has an epiphany and he uses imagination. And i know you love superheroes nick cage. So there's this fantasy of there's a lot of jason and the character and there's You know it's of course a protagonist. That's made up in the novel. But and the biggest thrill i had was what it's like to be on a book tour. Which a major book tour since you have experienced all of that great nonsense comes on so my question for you is what made you decide to take this leap of faith this leap of courage because this is courage right here of of making this departure from your other works of fiction. What made you do it. It was sort of a to a degree it was a bit of inevitability I've been trying to so the kind of story of this novel is You know in two thousand twelve when the return came out I went on a really big book tour and it was very frantic and exciting and all those kinds of things very comedic. 'cause a lot of fun but it's also exhausting. It was the whole wild experience. I didn't expect didn't know what i was getting into. And i wanted to write about that for just for years. Some you know that would go to readings that will tell the stories from book tour and people love it. I say well. I got to write about that at some point so a few years back maybe twenty seventeen twenty eighteen or so I started writing about this author on book tour. Had none of the personal. It was personal but it was also very kind of exaggerated so like the things that are in hell book. Weren't there yet. Just the framework. Was there if i can author on book tour I sent him. I talked to my agent about it. My agent was very impressed. had some friends read it. They weren't very impressed. Like everyone was kinda like is funny. But it's not really not really doing anything beyond being funny so i just got to put on the back burner and around that same time you know there was there was still continues to be so much. News of shootings of black men being shot by police And particularly at that time it it just felt so much larger than had been again has been going on. Is nothing new. But there was that moment of countess conflagration of all these things and just kind of build out to become so large so overwhelming. And i was talking to a friend on the phone. We spent weeks discussing it and it was just becoming overwhelming right about somehow so i started writing about this boy who wasn't me. It was weird mix of personal memoir and just fantasy and at some point. I said oh you have got that author on book tour story but if i just combined these two into a weird project and i didn't expect it to work. I was really nervous about it because there are so many chances that took in the writing of it There was a point when i your as authors. You have to control your work to a certain extent. And i definitely control the work to a point. There's a point where. I just let let it go and let him mutate on his own. And i didn't know what the mutation will bring about and that was a really big bit of a nerve wracking moment for me and all of a sudden i had this project. That was me but wasn't me that was about all these topics and yet was about as comedic side of things and i said to my agent and she absolutely loved it it was. I was really surprised.

But what I realized was the illustrator and the author, If you if you find someone that can work with you, um you know, that's what they do is they bring your vision to life? That's what I did. I found a person online. Um, look through many, many portfolios and found somebody that I really liked with the type of, um medium she was working with was very soft. I wanted something very soft for young readers.

So that's the very first thing. And that's the funnest that the most fun part I really enjoyed through. This whole process was Seeing the very rough sketches of Darla comes to life at the character, and she sent me many sketches over and then I kind of said Oh, that's the one and, um then I just got so excited about the process before that. It really wasn't coming to life until I saw that very, very first character sketch. So from there, they take the character sketch, and then they kind of just take it and, um, you pick out the sketch, and then she starts to do rough sketches of each page, and then we approve them.

Either one of the other like they're really pushing towards that as a way to understand mankind for sure. Yeah you got this division. And whether we're taking them as twins or torn right subdividing into each other right in. Yeah i think you're right about has been cousens Doesn't have to be the one anymore has to write. I think can you found your As always you've got lengthy copious highlights for us. Yeah so he says it it can. It can be totally arbitrary the sequence of events. Abcd in so far as the intensities can be the same or or or something And then there's this one part yeah right here The final energetic view on the other hand sees the sequence stuff's abc are means towards the transformation of energy which flows causal asleep from a the improbable state and tropical to bc and so to the probable state here Probable state d. Here in fact is totally disregarded since only intensities of effect are taken into account. So does that does that resonate with what's being said. I'm uncertain here. Specifically the the way i as i'm looking at this that he's talking about being very particular is the sort of nature of instant understanding affiliation a pure force affiliation or genealogy newman is kind of this natural thing the full body is engendered but -ffiliated is the first character of inscription marked on the body. The first thing we know is filtration the our lineage. Our own geneology. We know the nature of this intense affiliation this inclusive disjunction where everything divides but into itself. Where the same being as everywhere at every site at every level different only intensity the the way for us to be looking at who we are how we are how a creature understands. Its place how we understand. Our place on the full body of the earth is a to me. He's talking here about not necessarily reversing the causal nature of energy. Which i think is something. We could definitely sort of debate about the more about the birth or creation of a what we might call agents or subjects in this space. And how they the whole reality of our creation is not just biological. I don't have my mother or father just because of you know the general jeannie at The general genetics. And that that's passed on. It's the whole thing is also social. It is together that these things happen. It is all of these. Things are not being privileged. There is all of this constantly happening and it's a matter of intensities is how we define them in separate them out. That's how i'm reading the section this paragraph specifically. Yeah that was that was great in very clear.

But what I did was I found storyboard online, and when I often read to schools and stuff, I bring that story board to kind of show them that anyone can do this, you know, and to get your ideas down on paper. The very first thing I did was kind of map out with just a big piece of paper and started kind of writing ideas down on pages and kind of sketching what it would look like.

Hello everybody hey susie thank you so much for coming on. We really appreciate you joining us now as heather said Your fan art is awesome. That you are. I'm just going to go ahead and say you are my favorite star trek church twitter. Follow you are my absolute favorite. And it's just a joy to have you on so let's just jump in so to new listeners. Of the pod. We we do this in a format where we talk about old business where we cover kind of the classic era of star trek new business where we talk about. What's happening in the world of star trek right now and later upcoming business where we look beyond pawn always intended so starting with old business. Heather the women of star trek as you said we're celebrating women which i'm always in favor of gigi and i'm not sorry. I'm not saying so for me. This is kind of a no brainer guys because it was my mother and my sister who introduced me to star trek My mother was a big fan of guinan in the next generation So it could just go from there in heather. Like i said i'm gonna let you take the con- on this one old business. The women of star trek. Yeah i mean that's a very very broad topic when you think about it. Throughout the fifty five years of star trek there have been some amazing Inspiring and just all around all inducing women characters of star trek and so were just going to highlight some of the ones today. That inspire us. Personally i've talked multiple times about how much i love captain. Janeway she is my favorite captain. she is probably the first character i go to when i think of a woman character in star. Trek button aspires me. Because she really had everything thrown at her across the seven seasons of voyager and she handled it all with race in audacity the end just that classic. Jane waste snark where she wasn't going to let anything get her down even when it did occasionally get her down So suzy i'm going to start with you 'cause this is particularly why we chose to invite you today. So what inspires you about. The women characters of star trek and is there anyone in particular that you immediately go to when you think of that so first of all i wanna say i'm general generational trekkie too so like david. My mom introduced me to star trek. She watch star trek from the original series and then we watched together drain t and g when i was a kid. I love jamie to actually. Because i am a woman in business and so i admire her as a boss. I admire all the really difficult decisions that she has to make. Sometimes in the heat of the moment. I don't always agree with the difficult choices she makes. Although i do agree about to fix but the yes oh so. Jamie is on my shortlist bolanos. I'm doing a voyager. Watch right now. So i'm in a voyage or had space Lana i also love. 'cause there's not a lot of latino representation in track and so And so i just think she's a really cool strong character and then obviously my piece for women make track was dot zia. Janica is my favorite character in star trek The follow me on twitter. I call her my wife There's wedding pictures And so she is just really inspiring to me because You know she was queer presentation on tv when we didn't have a lot of that and so it was really important to me growing up and she's also this really just competent character and Shy meek kids. She was kind of the opposite of everything that i was and she just kind of lights up a room whenever she walks in and she just has such a commanding presence in such a joy of life that she is a character that i just really love and then just really resonates with me for having a of my anime compadres out there. What she said about jet zia would essentially make gen zia suzy's why fu to to translate the fans out there.

"And what adam and eve don't do to each other is rela- the word of god to each other in the garden. Where the prophetic part comes in. Where adam and eve were supposed to. Ideally be partners together and in that moment with the snake that one could tell the other. No this is what god said. It's all about the word of god. What did he say. And it's about the word of god getting twisted by deceptive figure and so Instead of representing god's word to each other. Which is the prophetic role. The priestly kin queen are exiled from eden space. And from. then on. What you're going to meet is these royal prophet priest roles all fragmented and broken out now and you will almost never meet anybody where all of them overlap in the image of god again moses gets close david gets really close but ultimately it's the portrait of jesus in the gospels. The painting him. As the first character in the story of the bible the recaptures the ideal vision of humanity from genesis. One and two prophet priest and king. I this picture of amir fracturing into and then being introduced to these fragments of the mirror and Some of them are just chard. Some of them are more put together. Yeah and yeah that that's good. That's kind of the idea as you come out. So what i want trace from here then is kind of how the unique role of the priest the one who represents god human humans to god in the sacred space How does that theme get uniquely developed and more specifically how does it eliminate jesus if the toll of the bible's unified story leading to jesus. It means there's a whole priestly layer to jesus identity and who he thought he was and what he was doing. And there's a priestly layer to the identity of his followers and how we should think about ourselves and talk about.
