A highlight from Cybersecurity attack on MGM may have begun with a ten-minute phone call: How it happened, Special Mutare Podcast
"This is Doug Greenan, I'm the publisher of Telecom Resiller, and I'm very pleased to have with us once again Chuck French of Mutari. Chuck, thank you for joining me today. Doug, a pleasure. Thank you. Well, we're, you know, we have talked in the past about cyber security, and of course on this podcast series, we've been doing a lot of work on that all year long, but this time I think it's a little bit less abstract. We're doing this literally while, even as we're recording this, MGM hospitality company is being basically hacked. You can't make a reservation on their line. There's still many operational problems that they're having. So we have the spectacle of one of the world's richest and most well -prepared companies, you know, having basically an episode about which we've talked about many times in this program. So Chuck, we're going to be sort of diving into that to find out, you know, what that's all about. And if anything can be done by, you know, the rest of us who are maybe in companies that have fewer resources, less visibility and so on. But what is Mutari? Well, Mutari is a 30 -year -old, not just more than 30 years old, but we're an independent software vendor, been focused in business communication software for all those years. We're based in Chicago, 400 enterprise customers. We enjoy a pretty good reputation for building great software and supporting it in the way that our customers enjoy, very little turnover of our employees, our customers, our partners. And as an organization, we're buying the company right now through an employee stock ownership. And I tell people this every time I meet them, because I think it's important. We're aligned and we're the most aligned company you've ever spoken to, Doug. And we're aligned around buying the company, but with a specific purpose. We need to do it around solving a problem. And then for the last couple of years, we are focused on being the leader in voice threat defense, which is why this conversation is so timely. You know, before we get off the topic of your company's core identity, I understand Mutari is actually a Latin word. Yes, it means to change in Latin. So think mutant, mutate. I always have to remind myself of that to make sure I'm saying Mutari. Pretend you're an Italian person saying Mutari, right? It's Latin for to change. And at first, I didn't know what to make of the name because everybody has a hard time with it. But I really do think it's more apt today than ever because this world, by the day, changes faster and faster and faster. And we know how to respond to that. We're agile a company that still acts like a perpetual startup. Well, let's talk about today because as we were just discussing before we started our podcast, and I'm sure a lot of our watchers, listeners are paying close attention to this. I am really just dazzled as much as we've talked and talked with you and many other people about the cybersecurity threat. I think very few of us imagined that what you guys have been telling us in terms of, gee, guys, you know, this could be really bigger than anyone could imagine. Well, here we are. It's seven days. It's still unfolding. I welcome anybody to go to our website and look in the resources column for all the content we put out there around this specific topic. Long -form articles about all of this, statistics, everything you'll ever want to know about the voice. And I'll bring it back to voice, Doug, because you didn't mention it yet. But, you know, the MGM ransomware attack, the cybersecurity attack that's happened has really brought MGM to its knees. You mentioned people can't make reservations. People can't get into the rooms right now, right? You can't, machines are not working. You know, from some estimates, MGM right now, because their systems are all offline, is losing somewhere between $3 million and $7 million a day and $1 million in pure cash. So those would be revenue and a million in cash every day because of this. And why this is so interesting to our firm is because the catalyst for all of this was a voice call. It was a telephone call from someone into the IT area, the customer service area of the IT department at MGM that allowed the bad actors to get the credentials necessary to put their software in, to allow them to take control of all of MGM, a voice call. So how about that? Well, you know what, it's very interesting because for those of you who are movie fans and like the Ocean's Eleven series, not the original with Frank Sinatra, but the more recent one from 20 years ago, there was, for those of you who are telecom fans, there was a PBX hack in that. That was part of what they did. And that was still in the era when the PBX was mostly a non -integrated system, a separate system running alongside the rest of IT. And of course, in the last 20 years, that's been departed. And now, you know, that call presumably occurred on the same set of servers, I think, that a lot of this is happening. Yeah. So, you know, so let's dive into this. So this is exactly what happened. This apparently started with a phone call. And then you were telling me that once they got in, they were able to do sort of some sort of horizontal thing. Tell me more about that, what that means. Yeah. And so I'll provide a little context around that. These are not people who, you know, stumbled upon this and, oh, I was able to get the credentials and so forth. These are large, large, sophisticated organizations, virtual organizations that are all over the world. And when I say sophisticated, and I know I've mentioned this in the past, these are, they have HR departments. They have areas where they can adjudicate conflicts. They have health plans in these organizations and they have specialization. So oftentimes what happens, and if you were to go on the dark web, you know, you can actually purchase some of these things. You can purchase the software to be able to enact these things. But there's just like in a hospital, right? You might have people whose job is the anesthesiologist, then you have the physicians and you have the nurse. They have that regarding ransomware attacks. So are there things called initial access brokers, people whose sole job is to be able to get access to a system. And that might be where their job ends. They sell that, they sell that and they put that in the marketplace. Another group picks it up, say, we're going to be the group now harvests us. That means they take the credentials and they go laterally and they infiltrate systems throughout an organization. They don't do anything. They lay late for a little while. I want to make sure that if you're backing up the copies, they're in the backups, all of their software is there. They lay in there. And then ultimately there comes a day when they say we're going to attack. And that's when someone, and I'm sure you've seen these before the screen pops up, you know, someone, some administrator that, you know, we have your data. You know, here's the information. Send some, you know, so much Bitcoin to so and so. Well, the encrypt your files and destroy them and still proof of life, if you will, to that end, and then you can continue on your way. So, yes, to answer your question, they received through three socially and through social engineering, a customer service person. It's this organization and they this group they call swirly spiders. I forget. I forget the name of these. Yeah. Yeah. They they. Yeah, that's right. That's right. They went ahead and then got access and told MGM that they had their systems in and ultimately MGM ignored them. And guess what happened to MGM when they didn't take this group seriously, everything that we're talking about today.

A highlight from GENC: Dont Be An Expert, Be A Student with Sandeep Seth, CMO of Coach
"The new In Gen C. The C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid, digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands, large and small, are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen C. Sam, I feel like everybody besides us is at career blockchain week. Are you also getting a little bit of FOMO? I am, but I'm also not because I've been traveling so much this summer and I have so much travel coming up that I'm like, if I get to stay home for four weeks, I'm so happy. So true. I am in Miami for the next week and a half and I'm so excited. This is that pre -Labor Day, get all of our house in order, work -wise and life -wise. So it's really nice to actually, you know, have a little bit of head's down time while everybody else is on vacation. Absolutely. Avery, I've noticed in your head's down time, you have not bought one share of Sam Yuen on Friend Tech. So what's going on? What do I got to do to get you in the Sam Yuen crypto community? I need to do that. I haven't even gotten Friend Tech set up, to be honest, because I think that I've seen this movie before on Friend Tech. And while I hope for all the success in the platform, what I don't love is the sort of like Ponzi -nomics ecosystem that I've seen happen many times before and I think can at times create the wrong incentives for people who don't have the right intentions. So that's one of the reasons I personally haven't gotten going, but I need to do that just to get my hands on the tech. I'm going to take that as an action item for myself by end of day today. So I will shortly invest in Sam Yuen on Friend Tech. Amazing. For anyone who is listening who has not yet gone into Friend Tech, it's a crypto platform on base. Coinbase is layer two, and it does allow you to, in essence, buy shares in personalities, your friends, and that share gets you into a private chat community with anyone else who holds those shares, which, you know, it's been one of the fastest growing crypto apps in a while. It's second only to Ethereum in number of transactions at the moment. They also did about $800 ,000 in fees just in the last 24 hours. So there is a lot happening in it. And one of the things we saw over the weekend was people like FaZe Banks, who's part of FaZe Clan, and some basketball NBA stars started coming on, which has sort of broken it out of just being crypto and crypto influencers. But yes, to your point, this idea of, you know, now I have to pay two Ethereum, five grand or whatever it may be to jump into someone's private chat community where I don't really know what I'm getting from them until you do, feels a little too crypto -pumpy to me. Yeah, Sam, you know my perspective on this sort of overt early financialization of things like relationships where I could just text you or telegram you or call you or do a podcast. And of course, there are oftentimes sort of other ways you financially support the people that you're friends with and you're sort of emotionally invested. That's one of the reasons why I've never been hot on this idea of like crypto dating apps and that type of thing. And like there's some things that don't need to be overly financialized, though, of course, when it comes to something like a celebrity or a community where you're like really gleaning valuable insights, I'm all for supporting the creator economy. So I need to get a little bit more hands on and get a more educated perspective because right now I'm sharing an outsider's view. But Base has certainly been the star of the summer, if you will, you know, Coinbase's Layer 2 solution. I was just walking in downtown Miami and saw they actually have outdoor ads for Onchain Summer. So got to get Jesse on here. It's awesome to see some activity happening on Base and I hope that it's sustainable. Yeah, absolutely. I've been trying to collect as much as I can in Onchain Summer really just to play with all the different brands. Atari is there, Coke is there, an amazing set of artists, DK Motion's piece, you know, 70 ,000 Mints, you know, for an open edition. Yeah, I got that one. Yeah, pretty awesome. Next story I wanted to get your thoughts on was we've talked a little bit before about AI and music, but I was reading a blog post yesterday that YouTube put out and it was about that they are actually working with Universal Music Group directly and the estates of like Frank Sinatra, the jazz drummer Max Victor, there's a global pop star Anita, Yo Gotti who's part of the hip hop world. All of them are coming in to say let's explore what AI and music can do together really as a precursor to setting up kind of set of guidelines of how musicians and AI creators can work together. And it's all kind of working with YouTube also through the lens of how do we ensure that there are creator royalties and rights that are happening within this. So I thought it was an interesting first step. You know, one, working with artists who don't have any say in their career anymore, the Frank Sinatra estate, but also working with current hot artists who are willing to say maybe there is a world where co -creation is at the DNA of part of what we do together. Do you have any more thoughts on that? I think there's no stopping the AI train and I think these musicians and the estates of these musicians are smart to lean into this and smart to be working with, you know, an established platform like YouTube to figure this out because it's going to happen anyway. It's going to happen with or without them. And, you know, to have their voice at the table, I think is critical and is ultimately going to be helpful both to educate the platform on what's possible, do things that are right by their fans and have their voices and their fans' voices heard. So I think it's amazing. I'm seeing all different types of experimentation in generative AI with music. There are, you know, a number of a platform I have been playing with a little bit. It's called like M -verse and you can, you know, say what you want and it gives you lyrics. It actually outputs like a rap. There's a bunch of cool stuff that's like happening with little experimental startups. I'm seeing a huge crossover with folks who are really into web free. I'm now really into the AI space as well. I saw NFT now now has AI now. There are so many of these, you know, I would call them like emerging tech leaders who had leaned into the space of NFTs and crypto. We're now seeing a lot of adjacencies with AI. But just like anything it comes, adoption is going to be driven by products that people actually want. And also very different to what we saw in the NFT world. I think monetization is actually a lot more challenging because this is not a place where there's an immediate commercialization. That's going to be something that comes up sooner rather than later and all of those artists are going to want to find ways they can get paid as a result of, you know, experimenting and exploring this technology because they do see one of the challenges that will be coming up shortly is like how do they make money from this? Agree on all of that. It feels a little bit to me like the frenzy is dying down a bit. Oh, it is. Actually chat GPT usage is down. The speculation is because it's summer, so kids are out of school. Well, not only is it down, but I've been hearing more in relation to text -based AI that people are finding results getting more and more suspect in the stuff that they're trying to create in the sense that GPT -4, which was supposed to be this really revolutionary step forward, actually isn't creating as dynamic output. It's kind of more generic output. There's also these theories on the fact that the more that AI is getting trained on output that's done by AI, that it continually dumbs itself down, which lends itself to the opportunity to say how much is it more of a research tool versus a creative output tool? And then even going one step further, how viable is that at research when you do it? You still have to double check. You don't want to be the lawyer who got disbarred because they were using chat GPT in order to litigate their cases. I guess I just wonder if, and I think this is a great thing, right, as the frenzy dies down, we start to see the actual use cases and the productivity side, which I know you're big on and I'm big on, start to emerge as how does this just make me a better creator, employee, thinker, writer, whatever that may be? Yeah, so we actually just said these five key takeaways of where the AI space is heading. And the first prediction is that AI excitement will wane. I think that that moment of like, oh, my god, chat GPT is magic, that is kind of like ended for a lot of people because they played around with it. And I think from a consumer perspective, there's the fun of playing with it for the first time. But then there's like actually I could just search on Google. So that initial excitement is waning both with consumers and also with some enterprises. The second sort of prediction is that AI will be everywhere. I think we're seeing AI sort of deeply integrated across so many of the day to day things that we use, whether it is Instacart or Gmail. AI is just built in already. So it's like, do I need a separate interface to utilize some of this technology? We also think that corporate strategies are starting to take shape. I know our next guest is probably going to speak about this a little bit, but so many of our partners at Viner are crafting the strategies right now of how we're going to leverage AI, both for marketing, but also this is a conversation very often not owned by the chief marketing officer, by the chief information officer, the chief technical officer. A lot of those conversations are happening of like, what's the corporate strategy around this? And we also believe that negative narratives are going to start gaining traction a little bit like what you just said, Sam. A lot of calling out the misuses of it, a lot of calling out the ethical biases. There will be a few like, oh, no, that just happened moments in the next year that I think will expose sort of the dark side of AI. And our last prediction is that AI is going to be everywhere at the Super Bowl this year. Marketers love a shiny new toy and AI is that many a brief is coming in around how do we use AI end to end to develop our Super Bowl campaigns. And I think it's the right brief, right? It's how do we leverage this technology to do something we're already going to do better, faster, cheaper, more effectively. So I think all of that is going to happen. But the initial hype is dying off in favor of, you know, really trying to understand this stuff. And what you just sort of pointed out was the fact that there are multiple different formats of generative AI and the models themselves. There's advantages to having a model that is trained on more information and there's advantages to having a model that is trained on less. Just hearing a pitch from an AI company we're considering working with on some marketing initiatives and their model is actually intentionally not trained on every single thing under the sun so it can be narrow and focused. So whether you're talking about Claude by Anthropic or barred by Google or any other of the different companies and models that they're building, each of these are a little bit different. And as you become more familiar with them, you see the pros and cons of each the same way you have pros and cons of any like media platform or other sort of tech platform that you use. And I don't think that that many people actually understand that yet. They think generative AI is generative AI and everything is chat GPT and you're like actually it's completely different if you're using meta's llama versus if you're using Einstein GPT because ultimately it's pulling from different information that gives a different output and bigger is not necessarily better.

through through all I jump of into Kansas mountain I think time you're still but on central why no still such not just on because central time I'm okay trying I was to hoping get there yeah so okay Goodland where is in mountain it Kansas says Goodland does I that thought line if anything change was Goodland might be okay well the four counties Sherman Wallace Greeley and Hamilton are mountain so I I would I while would I say don't even no know how many miles are across you're Kansas because not going to be there I've for never quite been on a I've never been on this road really never yeah no this is all new no I've gone across it I've up 90 gone across to get 80 into and I've to gone across 40 get and into Seattle I've okay cut up through Wyoming you know to and I got pick I got stopped shares at that snazzy it with dot Idaho stop over yeah in the and that they they share gave Washington me a real hard State time in there so I released my German tourists and so they while they were all walking the brakes around on the smoking trucks cigarettes and and drinking and beer watching and them do the dot BMW inspections engineers and taking pictures were overlooking and next thing get I out know of they our station handed I me my paperwork and said love get it uh these people in yeah the get these you've people back got about in 425 the bus and get miles out of our in Kansas oh that's a long ride you do because from Kansas City you'll get like and trying Leavenworth to think well and well Lawrence like I say and at the Topeka end you're only and about 20 Manhattan miles what from Colorado when else you get to Oakland oh okay okay yeah so but you're most of it most of it that's yeah why that's hundred miles why it's is going mountain to be I about guess almost eight hours of driving right there alone yes are you gonna do it yeah okay yeah another in well another hour I'm yeah or so because I you don't know I know when may I get I somewhere may away give from it a the break city in try a to get in a room good oh well you'll have you'll have a lot of opportunity for that because you're going through it's not like the West you know where outside of you Kansas have City absolutely you'll nothing have for options a hundred and ten in miles Shawnee you and will have definitely plenty in Leavenworth of things and in Lawrence plenty you know of so Costa Topeka Pica that's you where the Kansas got here Turnpike you got a comes lot of in places so there's where probably a lot you'll there but have yeah is there a turn is there a turn is is 40 a turnpike I mean is 70 a turnpike no you will not have so you far will not the have only fees toll that good I paid was at the good Delaware cuz I River do right everything I can right to avoid well them New Jersey exit because fee otherwise the only mm -hmm way to get out of paying yes that the fee New is Jersey to we go to paid the New Jersey exit fee right bridge is left yeah there's yeah they took the they did put a toll is the over way I on used to the go to on Philly when I the when scuttles falls I bridge would leave now and they uh right -huh just just which before I got hurt that's when they put the that's when they put the toll by played on there yes yeah yes good yeah old Trent that what that is it the Trenton politicians makes the world but no you will really have no reason they go to take from the being Kansas and Turnpike being if in you were office in Topeka to and being you wanted in to prison go say yeah down to Oklahoma but you might take it but for where you're going you'll keep going from Topeka through Manhattan and then ultimately to then what what okay what yeah that we'll do is sounds we'll good give you a yes call tomorrow as I'm night at my I'm I'm counting on at mile our marker progress five yes now oh count yeah no then on it you I'm kept me with going you in spirit for I'm you loving kept to ride me going for yes close to 30 years always the worst thing okay in the world thank was you when they knocked well you you off kept of XM radio at that point I took the XM radio threw it on the dashboard and never turned it back well on he's again on every oh regular man radio all station right listen so what do I need listen XM for? to Sean Hannity Funny you mention him because I around here try to listen to my little AM and globe but if I get too far away I can't pick it up and so there's John Iver a going to the news doctor talk and station that invariably Sean Hannity I'll just was flip on and it to the and radio kept today it changing was it was dial I was driving positions it's like 560 the and station I put it was back on and was finally 550 I said well and clearly would go to this 540 radio doesn't then want to hear the I Sean put Hannity it back and show go to apparently he doesn't like old Sean right right right well you know I didn't really want to either but the problem was that Spanish anymore stations I'm not going to you find stations know what that play the kind of you music I like do so I is opt for that talk you you you know or sometimes know you even you the get around you no I can can absolutely get the do that what's but there's something about that just people listening radio to good older app AM and or you can FM you that can still listen to your captures my heart and I try alright so we'll talk to you tomorrow night okay have a good night thanks appreciate it John alright from Waukegan's so 888 got a request -876 so John -5593 what do you want to hear? 8888 Raleigh Uh, and where he was Mr. born Al Hibbler, and raised yeah could now you tell me of a little about course I assume I couldn't assume anything what you know Unchained Melody is usually the one that most people think about when they think of Al Hibbler but but he died in he Chicago sang and with Duke Ellington that was actually we about were talking about Big 20 Ben before years ago and now he I was think from he Mississippi was and he from was older Tyro about 80 in 1885 and Al Hibbler like I say he was a baritone vocalist for Duke Ellington he was Was blind he born and blind? he No I then went don't on his own think excuse so I think he was me born blind as was far blind as at far as the yeah age like of like six Stevie yeah right early Wonder early was you're born you're blind right so but yeah Ray Charles he went so Mississippi boy I didn't know that was just really nice so I would like to hear if he he okay big hit you for got him time you betcha on sure I'll be happy to happy his version to play that and night you know train I played that and Johnny Hodges actually version Al Hibbler that's was with Johnny the blues Hodges's old man which band was the at that time the tune and he also played with Count Basie and a number of others so what interesting what happened so with he wound him up in arrested the latter like in New Jersey 50s and in Alabama Al Hibbler and became all a that civil now rights why activist and that mattered is because a lot of the record labels just didn't want anything to do with them but but Frank Sinatra when he started but but reprise Frank really records did signed him and support him and however then Al he didn't sang wind up making a couple a lot songs of recordings at Louis but
Joe Piscopo Unpacks the Disgraceful State of New York Politics
"Talked us about serious crimes in Manhattan in the last three years. When I came up like we were just talking about in New York in the late 70s before New York mayor Giuliani became married. It was UD east after double up to go across the Larry David and I would have to double up, for example, to go to get a sandwich at a place. You'd go in pez, right? You couldn't survive if you didn't. It was as simple as that in New York. We're right back and by the way, and you couldn't go from the comedy clubs in midtown to down to the village without taking a buddy with you. It was that dangerous. We're right back where we started. And now for this guy, and I speak on behalf of a Democrats independent libertarians, Republicans, all of us were appalled at what Alvin Bragg did because this is it in a nutshell. If you're a criminal and you stick a gun and someone's face and you don't pull the trigger, you stick a gun in a bodega owner, a hard worker bodega owner, and then if you don't and you get they catch you, that you know what? Bragg would get that charged out from a felony that to a misdemeanor, and that guy would be back on the street again. It's a cyclical problem in New York, New York can't get its mojo back because of Alvin Bragg. You know, even the mayor, like him or not, he's trying. Now, even governor hulk will now say it, we can't let these criminals back on the streets. Why? Because you're talking about it said, I'm talking about it every morning. You can't there's got to be consequences. It's why we have all these shootings. These guys are running rampant and brag and all these Soros funded DAs exactly what you said are bringing down and slowly crumbling all the great big cities. And I can't figure it out. So when he goes after Donald Trump, you know, everybody, Democrats, the far left woke socialists, even they said there's nothing there.

No Dean. That's what you know. You got the alert. Come on buddy. No. He's treating this like it's the King of Facebook show. Well it never really gets off the ground. It's really no beginning no end. It just is. Coming back soon by the way. The King of Facebook livestream I think I'm going to be doing my first show back in a while. It's an out of control livestream.

Coffee with the King is Sunday morning. It's very mellow. That's a tame. No the King of Facebook show is way over the top. It really has no rhyme or reason to it.

I'm trying to not do that but it just comes up. Let's see on March 1st 1994 the 36th annual Grammy Awards are presented in New York hosted by Gary Shanley. Gary Shanley had one of the funniest stand ups I've ever seen in my life and he didn't swear once. And it was one of the funniest fucking stand ups. It came out around 86. It was so funny. And he just never swore once. Didn't have to. So let's see hosted by Gary Shanley performing the soundtrack from the 92 film The Bodyguard. So this is 94. But the soundtrack from the 1992 film The Bodyguard wins album of the year. Monster album. While its lead single Whitney Houston's cover of I Will Always Love You wins record of the year. The single version of A Whole New World performed by Peeble Bryson and Regina Bell wins song of the year. Tony Braxton, another 90's hardy wins best new artist. All of this is the infamous Frank Sinatra incident. You know what I'm referencing? Frank Sinatra receives the Grammy Legend Award. Sinatra's acceptance speech is cut short. They sent him to commercial while he was still talking. Other artists criticized the producer's decision during the show and Billy Joel takes extra time to perform his song The River of Dreams noting that he is wasting valuable air time. Wow. They disrespected Frank Sinatra. He had somebody killed over that. Someone died over that. What the fuck? It's always the young generation that's like eh. Cut him. Cut him. Huge mistake on their part. Because there was huge blow back. If there was social media back then that show would have got destroyed. It would have been. He only died a couple years after that. Yeah. But Billy Joel good for him. He's like he knows they're not going to cut him off. Right? Because he's big. Frank was over the hill. He'd done his time. And so he decides to burn their time because they were trying to save precious air time. And you know Billy Joel is probably a huge Sinatra fan. As you should be. As you should be. That's right. I have Sinatra Sundays here at the Casa McVera Sunday morning. Oh very cool. I have a picture of my father with his parents. Oh really? Yeah my dad had a nightclub so I guess they were there one night. But Frank was not there. Yeah well. He was off being famous. I guess that's six degrees of separation right there. I guess so yeah. On March 3rd 1994 in Rome, Nirvana's Kurt Cobain collapses into a coma after overdosing on Ropanol and Champagne. And what? Ropanol. R-O-H-Y-P-N-O-L. Ropanol. What the hell does that do? Does it prevent? Let me see. Benzodiazepine. It's Benzodiazepine. Look at me. I'm married to Dr. Vera. Benzodiazepine used to treat severe insomnia and assists with anesthesia. As with other hypnotics has been advised to be prescribed only for short term use by those with chronic insomnia. He mixed that with Champagne and it equals a coma. Champagne. I had a bad experience. Worst hangover I ever had in my life was Champagne. Me too. I drank a bottle of it. I was like 14. I can do it. I was 16. Almost killed me. Let's see. Let's not get into these stories.

March 7th 1994 the United States Supreme Court decision Campbell vs Acuff Rose Music Inc rules that parody can qualify as fair use. The case was spurred by two live crew releasing a parody of the Roy Orbison hit Oh Pretty Woman I remember that. Without a license from the publishing firm Acuff Rose Music. Acuff. Roy Acuff he was the guy that I think he roped Hank Williams out of money too. I think that's something. And that decision probably saved a weird Yankovic's career. March 8th 1994 Nine Inch Nails released the second studio album The Downward Smile. Great. Loved that album. It would go on to sell 3 million copies and be credited with helping bring industrial rock music into the mainstream. I wanna do you like an animal? You just bleeped yourself. I just bleeped.

They could have toured for ten years and made that money every year if they wanted to. Yeah. That's an album with Roger Waters? No. No. Well that's the first one with that. Pink Floyd broke up after the album after well Final Cut. I'm sorry. I had to say that. I had to say that. Division Bell was a great album. It really was. Did it have learning to fly on it? No that was a momentary lapse of reason. Which I used that term a lot when I was a union steward. I was a union steward like federal level for like 18 years and every time someone would get in trouble and I would have to bring they'd have to get called up in front of the man and you know maybe a chief or two and I'd always say people you have to understand this young officer just suffered from a momentary lapse of reason. That's awesome.
Why Was Frank Sinatra So Unique? Joe Piscopo Explains
"Ask you, I mean, we've got this image of what you do on Sundays and how you celebrate Frank Sinatra, the music of Frank Sinatra. I'm just going to stop for a second. Why was he so unique because he doesn't fit into the classic mold of the crooner. He wasn't the classic look, he wasn't the teeny barber heartthrob, his delivery emotionally. The voice was everything for me. You know him far better than anyone else because he's paid tribute to him at every week. Talk to us a little bit about Sinatra and why to this day across every spectrum age group demographic, he just still has that like Elvis. He just has that grip on us. That's right, exactly. You just described it because he wasn't a he didn't have the movie star looks. Think about it. He just had a, he was a guy. He was a guy's guy. When alpha males were okay to be alpha male. And he had swagger, and he owned it. And as I study him more and more on that Sundays with Sinatra's show, I could see and I go down and I could hear in his voice. He would take a song. And herein lies why people still find him. I think so appealing. He performed a play, took that three minutes of a song. And it became an epic a piece of theater. Yeah. And when you hear it, he every nuance of every lyric, he would caress it, and feel it in his heart and in his soul. And
Joe Piscopo Describes His Amazing Journey to SNL
"Improv. I heard that the original cast was leaving Saturday Night Live. That's Gilda Radner. That's Chevy Chase. That's John Belushi. That's Billy Murray. My hero, Danny aykroyd. And they were looking for cast to replace the original Saturday live. And I wanted nothing to do about it. NBC did a go round of all the comedy clubs. They never picked anybody. I got a call from a friend who was writing on SNL on the new SNL. He got a writing job. He told gene dominion produced at the time. You got to see Joe Piscopo. He does impressions. I would do impressions. I was doing the Frank Sinatra president on stage. I would do Tom Snyder. Remember Tom Snyder said that day was great. And I would do all of that on the stick. So they brought me to NBC. I went up to the 17th floor. I did an in studio kind of audition for gene domain and she said, okay, you know what? We're going to put you on tape. We're going to put you on tape. Come in this date. So I bypassed a lot of auditions, but I went in, I got down to the last few hundred, and I went into what it was David Letterman studio in the 6 a, I believe it was at NBC. And I just riffed on camera. Now, I was so cocky back then. I was young number one, number two. Who wants to replace the original cast of Saturday Night Live? But I did the old man, this is Sinatra. I did all the impressions. They left. They liked it. They hired me as a utility guy. They needed somebody to do the impressions right there. They hired me. And so we went in. And if I could cut to, we did about ten shows on SNL. Gilbert Gottfried was in the cast. There was some great chemical. Billy, the gili, I came up with Gilead to comedy club. Then as we were casting the show about to mount the show on the air, I walked up to the 17th floor one day and someone said, I want you to meet a kid from Long Island comedy clubs. I was in New York City comedy clubs. We didn't know the Long Island comedy clubs at the time. I walked in and as a young kid sitting down and they said, Joe, I want you to meet Eddie Murphy. And I sat with this young kid who was 19 years old, 19 years old. And I immediately talked about connection, you were gracious enough to make the introduction. And the connect with Eddie, the laughing, we just joked around, what are we doing here? We just hit it off.
Sebastian Welcomes the Iconic Joe Piscopo to the Show
"Brother from another mother, Joe Piscopo. Welcome to America first one on one. It's great to see you, doctor. Yeah, we did. It's amazing. We met. We first met the hallways of a.m. 9 70. I think we just kind of had to click. You're a fun guy. I mean, you know, there's so much crazy, serious news, but it's nice to see you on a great sense of humor, my friend. Right, I had to do that. That was just too irresistible, but you know, I'm a regular guest on your show. I don't usually have radio hosts for a radio host for our one on one deep dive, but there's so much that you can share with our millions of listeners across the nation. I think we had to do this. So first things first, let's find out a little bit about this man. I can tell you who doesn't know how to spell Jersey. He spells it with a Z so follow him on Twitter at JR ZY Jersey Joe Piscopo. His website is Joe Piscopo U.S., but you haven't always been a radio guy. So for those who are unfamiliar with your Hollywood years and then your comedic stardom on SNL, would you give us a kind of encapsulated life to date? How did you get to being on a.m. 9 70 in New York? And what did you do before that, Joe? You know, when I went to college, I went to a little school in Jacksonville, said I couldn't get in anywhere else. I was the worst student in the state of New Jersey, you know. So my father, God rest his soul, said, look, there's a school that will accept you as the Jacksonville Florida is a little school called Jones college and they had radio stations. They had four radio stations and right then I fell in love with radio. There was an a.m.. There was a 100,000 watt FM station where I did and this is when I was in college. I was the disc jockey 6 to midnight doing beautiful music. The last 15 minutes you've heard about the body and raindrops keep falling on my head. That was that was my hang on, hang on, you had a 6 hour shift, Joe. Oh man, I'll tell you what. They used to put us into 8 hour shifts. 7 hour shifts, you know? So yes, it was a 6 it was 6 to midnight at go to school all day and I'd hang right there in the studio and we had turntables that we had turntable. So I used to. I'm far too young. What is this turntable you speak of, mister Pope?
Arthur Aidala: 'Never Play Politics With People's Lives'
"Arthur idala is one of the best lawyers in America. He's a New York City trial attorney, joins us from New York City where I will be in just a few hours to cover all of this next week in Lower Manhattan. What size free Trump T-shirt should I get you? Should I order you counselor? Well, I'm thinking it's probably going to, this is going to plot in the phrase Trump Frank Sinatra's mugshot, which is a pretty popular mug shot for decades, but I think Elvis Presley's got one out there as well. Look, I've lived in this world. I grew up in this world. My dad was an assistant district attorney in the Manhattan DA's office under the DA who was called Frank Hogan. He was there for three decades plus. And, you know, Frank Hogan had an expression and he said, never play politics with people's lives. And in this particular case, Alvin Bragg is not just playing politics with Donald Trump's life. He's playing politics with the American lives because on so many levels. But on the most obvious one is people may want to vote for him for president of the United States. Now this does not eliminate him from running for president of the United States. What it definitely puts up speed bump in his path. If anyone could turn lemons into lemonade, there's no one better at it than Donald Trump. He'll figure out as you just said, some way to make this mug shot into something positive for his reelection. But it's just not how the system is supposed to work, Mike. And that's the bummer of this hope.

She was at least a little bit because remember last season when we almost talked about ava gardner. Oh my goodness.

"It's not as bad as it was in the sixties. Even still. You may think that no Joe was. It's worse. That's not worse. Now. I remember and doing it and doing a lot of research of on Frank Sinatra lately, and it's It's actually my privilege. E. I mean, the career of this man was just incredible. But when you look and I tracked Timewise everything that went through in the sixties where there was the racism and in the fifties, you know, and then the city's burning down and the rights there. So so now so now Everything we thought was settled down in the sixties. Now we're back right to where we started. They're saying the exact same things to seeing the exact same things. So I'm saying Whoa! And then what was the argument that systemic racism never went away? No, I don't think that's it. I think they no one's ever gone in to the community of these just communities and fixed it. Not not since LBJ, you know, said Look, I'm doing this for votes, he said. Off the record. We passed the Civil Rights Act the voting act because now it's time. It's time. You know to go into the cities because everybody's complaining about the exact same things and you and I are just regular Americans just trying to and we're not racist and were hard working on our families. Some of it. Some of them are some of us are families come from other countries learn the language going. The laws became Americans. We're proud to be, I guess that's wrong. Now you know wrong, You're right, and we'll and we'll get there. But the one thing that we were not this time. We were not smart. You know when, especially when the president brings out over a million people in Washington, and it's a beautiful celebration of the greatest country and greatest experiment in the world, the United States of America, you know, and then you got the mama looks. The mama looks. They go into the And and it was instigated that red right down there. In my opinion, January, 6 was instigated by an outside source. They knew it was gonna happen where the police called down. We don't know enough about it. You know what? Probably not going to find out about it. They like using this against people who supported Donald Trump. And again, I'm putting Donald Trump aside. They like using his people who support America because you and I we just want America. We won't appreciate the great country wanna pay respect to this great country. We believe that's one nation under God. And we believe that right? So everybody, we have no animus, hate race or any racial overtones at all in any of us, But on the other side, they want to change everything about the country. And why, because it's socialism's like socialism. And I saw great great documentary on HBO happen to watch it quickly for a little while on each booze in any field on Venezuela nose on BBC. Yeah, God forbids on. HBO is on BBC and it was about Venezuela and the horror that they're going through. And that's exactly where the Democrats in my opinion are leading us to socialism and God forbid, we can end up like Venezuela. So hang in because you're not wrong. And I love you. And we love you for listening Jo on the radio. It's about 20 minutes after six o'clock, We got a great show and it's great to have you with us. You know, let's work through it together. We will.

Martinez spot Eve off, often written in regard to other poets, and what happens to them, especially during hard times, which is quite common for Starving poets. Periods, of course, during periods of reaction. There's there's references throughout this collection of great poets that have been murdered by fascists. Lorik A, for instance. Um United earlier conversation. You You talked about poets as disposable people tell us about Jack Jack Guidos. In the poem Flood. Yes. Um, Jack I were off was, uh My second father. You've heard lots of poems about frankness. Bother my actual father. But check out what else was right behind Jack OG widows was born in 1934 in 2014. He was a Puerto Rican poet. Fiction writer, essayist, playwright, translator, community organizer and also the director of animal Say, Look bottom you in East Harlem, Uh he died of complications from Alzheimer's. Uh, hey. Published three collections of poetry, one collection of short stories, Irish people who go out and look for them. And in the poem you about here. I actually quote one of his poems. Um, which is Son? It's substantially like the words of four. Lando to Vegas one position ahead of me on the unemployment line. I also make reference to how quickly I remember him. He was filming theater actor from Puerto Rico, and they make reference to LaTasha the auto. There was a Puerto Rican restaurant in Manhattan on and Jack and I love to go there. When I talk about poets is disposable people. This is what I mean. Um, when I mean, is this and somebody else said this first? Not me, um, that when a poet dies Most of the time the poets work dies with the poet. That's a sobering thought. And if you think I'm wrong about that, just go to any used bookstore on and go right to the poetry section stand there. Trying to figure out how many of these people you've heard of before. Because that's where poets going to die if they go anywhere at all. What's even worse is when poets work dies before the poet Was even worse in my estimation is when the poet As a result of a disease like Alzheimer's, like dementia. No longer remembers. In this case that he was ever a poet it all He doesn't even understand. With that rectangle called a book happens to bay. And so this is a poem about A dear friend and poet. Who I want to remember and I hope Others will remember too. After hearing it. Go and look for Jack acquittals. So this is, uh, it's called flown. The Jackal where 1934 to 2000 and 14. I was eight. The blackout stuck on the lights died all across the city. The massacre of fireflies. In the projects of Brooklyn. I steeled myself to 14 F fingers spread against the cool tiles of the hallway past the concrete and chicken wire terrorists where I once burned ants with a magnifying glass. Many years later. At the Chinese restaurant uptown, Jack said, Take out any flying here. He was my first bullet. I had seen the fireflies and his son. It's blink and float away. Phoolan or the philosopher and the unemployment line. Blanco, the painter painting in the madhouse, one that also the dealer killed by shotgun in a bar on Avenue a His mother, the seamstress in the quick needle of her sewing machine, Jack the moving man, his hands sliced raw.

He took 14 curtain calls I'd opening night.

The Protestants and the Jewish guys were happy. They didn't have to go. But so that the houseguest so on the way there, he says, we're gonna read the Gospel and I said Why he said, Well, they let lay people read the gospel Tommy and I'm a former altar boy, but Kind of read when I have to say, because you know, some of those words in the Bible aren't easy to pronounce. So not the priest gets up. We're all sitting up on the altar, and he says that the congregation reading from Today's gospel will be Mr Roger Moore, Mr Gregory Peck, Mr Frank Sinatra and Mr Tom Dreesen and the whole Church began the bus, whose time recently had followed by the fellow Gregory Peck. When Gregory Peck read the gospel people say Didn't he write this because he didn't think that my voice and and then in the end the asses it went real well.
