Would There Be So Much Vaccine Resistance Under Trump?
"There is a great resistance by americans to being told by the government to do. I'm gonna tell you flat out about the vaccine. i'm determined. I've talked to too many people. And i'm not going to get into an argument with you about the vaccine. I'm going to agree with you. You're not going to take the vaccine likely because you're not going to be told what to put in your body that's it in fact you'll your your position and i get it i. I've interviewed many many people over the last year. You don't want to take the vaccine because you're not going to be forced to do so you're going to choose to do so. And the mandates are driving you from taking it here was with president trump. Said to my friend sean. Hannity last night on fox news about the vaccine and these mandates How is it possible. More people died this year when he was hammering. You all last year about it. Well you know saying the other day is very interesting during my administration. Everybody one of the vaccine there was. nobody's saying. Oh gee i don't wanna take it. Now they say that. And that's because they don't trust the biden administration.

Outside of the television generals we have great generals. We have great leadership in the military. Great
Beyond Impeachable: Joe Biden Caught in a Lie About Afghanistan
"Taught give military advisers. Not tell you know we should just keep twenty five hundred troops. It's been stable situation for the last several years we can do that. We can continue to do that. No no one said to me that i can recall. Nobody's said that to me. That i can recall the classic. Dc dodge This is general milley just today cut twelve. Probably it's your testimony that you recommended. Twenty five hundred troops. Approximately stay in afghanistan as i've said many times before this committee and other committees. I don't share my personal recommendation to the president. But i can tell you my personal opinion and my assessment. If that's what you want yes place yes. My assessment was back in the fall of twenty and it remained consistent throughout We should keep a steady state of twenty five hundred and it could bounce up to thirty five hundred. Maybe something like that in order to move toward negotiated gated solution. So who's lying is it. Marxist senile biden. Let's ask the man who is at the pinnacle of the most influential conservative website. Breitbart dot com book market today. None other than alex marlowe addicts. Welcome back to america first dr. Gee i don't know how to think this intro because you've already opened with the crucial moment of hours and hours of testimony today. I and you got it. So i don't even know what i'm here for anymore. Although the whole media is coached up the conservative media gets it. You cut right to this. There's been so many bombshells already But busted by stephanopoulos saying no one recommended keeping troops and then millie who is defended biden. for months and months saying flat out everyone recommended keeping troops. So it's pretty clear to be biden's lying in this is beyond

WSOP Field Sizes Are Dropping
"I know i said the wsb gets a pass on field sizes in a year over year comparison because things have changed dramatically since twenty twenty however last year's fields was two thousand one hundred twenty six centuries from fourteen hundred hundred fifty. Five weeks seems awful. Yeah it feels like a really steep drop off right there. And i know that we talked about it and i was thinking something like maybe like a thirty percent. Drop off. I think would been good and acceptable. Just based upon the fact of everything that's going on in poker right now that having that kind of field size would still be good but this does feel quite thin for championship. Event as a sixty two percent drop year over year in total entries. That's that's ugly no matter what. The circumstances are surprised that low. I did have it being over a thousand. Maybe getting closer to fifteen hundred total entries but Just seem to be a sort of a. Instead of being the exclamation point at the end of the series. It was kind of a hard thud. Couple of other events wrapped up in the closing days mitchell harrison. Brad's osman and dancing. Lar- winning the finale though event to run after the championship event all in all. I think he's probably pretty happy with with word. Got out of it. It seems like there was maybe far less appetite than even they'd predicted given all the different changes so We're gonna see what happens with the gp stuff which is now underway. They started just as w dot com is wrapping up. Gee-gee was sort of hitting the gas pedal on there's the fifty dollar buying kickoff event called the return man i'm going to butcher.

There's a hockey player with a similar name on relied on my my childhood memory hockey players. I was waiting with baited breath to see what would come out of your mouth. Very give call him. I'm going to call them bar because that's only fair to him cops. A thirty thousand eight hundred ten entry field takes him one hundred sixty thousand dollars not bad for fifty bucks. Yeah not bad at all. You know Last year the the field size was good too. I know last year the opener for the events it was double the buyin one hundred dollar opener and they got twenty nine thousand three hundred six runners. And so this this. I know it's a difference in half of the buy-in but still for field size. I think that's a pretty good
Reasons Why We Have Impostor Syndrome
"Why are the real reasons why we have imposter syndrome. And why so. Many people have imposter syndrome because some statistics say that it's at least seventy percent of the workforce so people who worked so basically between twenty and six sixty five seventy depending where you live in. The world have reported feeling or thinking imposter syndrome stuff at some point in their career. And it's probably more than seventy percents. The reason why everybody has imposter syndrome even though it manifests at different stages in their life is because all most i mean i can think we can safely say everyone has some sort of. I am not good enough within them right and this could be to a greater or less to extend and show up in different ways but i would say everyone. I don't think that there is anyone on this planet or almost no one who has never felt not good enough in some specific situation and when we don't feel good enough in the inside it kind of pops up as i don't know enough. I'm not qualified enough. Who am i to. It's a self with thing and no one was born feeling. Oh gee i'm not good enough. I suck. I just got lucky when you look at infants or very small children. It's kind of the opposite. They think they're unstoppable. They don't really have that chatter in their mind yet. That makes them out everything. We question everything that when they want something they scream in. Ask for it and they don't really have any sense of. I am not good enough unless and that's a different topic. It's inherited where we got it at an extremely young age but usually when you watch children they kind of whatever you tell them they can. Do they think that can which means that. Imposter syndrome is developed rather than something we are born with.

"I think this kind of work and these kind of stories are so important right. So it's like from this conversation but from these stories you then even though you're like wow i. I enjoyed them. Thank you but now you are turning the lens back to yourself and being like this makes me have some longing or some some curiosity or desire for something else for me i think that's what memoir and personal can do for other people. It's not just for ourselves. We say we always right for ourselves. I but you know it's when you that's you know that's a part about. I think developing some craft around it so that it can be something accessible to everyone even people who are outside of your outside of your your household in this case in the time that we have left on trying to make the decision between the old underwear and the now the waddell. And i'll let you choose. Well you know what was really interesting. I mean one of the great things that are being a small publisher is that we don't have these long lead times that goto publication for my novels they're almost. It's a standard eighteen months right from the time day. Receive your edited manuscript. So that's not the time that they give you comments back. That's the time that they receive it and now it's ready to go into the production queue because they need time for a marketing and sales and so it's actually in your favor as an author that they do all that but it just extends eighteen months normally. When i read a novel by the time i go on tour for it. People say things. And i'll be like i completely forgot about that but when you're a small press it can go really fast. I finished writing this basically last summer and then it was out in october. So one thing. That was great about that. Was i was able to include these pieces that were that were about the pandemic and about our family and the pandemic and that was something that was really. I think exciting for me. That i could have a book that really reflected sorta this really difficult on an enlightening time that we went through. I'll do some days. I just wanna wear old underwear. Because i think that kind of brings us into that moment of the pandemic finding that in your book where that was yeah. I was laughing when you said that. Because i don't think i've actually ever read this out so here we go okay some days. I just wanna wear old underwear. I don't mean underwear that is dirty or it's been sitting on top of the hamper waiting. Its turn in the laundry. I mean underwear with shot elastic. The cotton worn thin small rips or tears. The ones shoved in the back of the door that.

"I mean tell you honestly i mean she's not somebody who just like it's not like seventy who goes to church on. Sundays tries to be a good person. She actually lives full-time. In a buddhist community she translate sutra and does work relate to suture twenty four hours a day. She's not sleeping. This is what she's doing. And i think that i think it's i think. We have honestly to mexico expectation in relationships. I think that you could. I mean there. Plenty of buddhists right who are in families and to who Figure out how they're going to balance the two. But i think when you if you actually read any of the tax the buddhist texts you realize. Wow this is going to be really tricky. If you're in a family because unless your family's also boost because of the fact that i did have my son say to me one time when he was my youngest one to me moms are supposed to do x. An i just because of my mother. I actually was like. Wow i really want us to have some inquiry around statement because where you getting that from man is that really true and then what does that mean. If i don't do that. I mean all of these. Things are things we take for granted and then hold other people too but actually i think they're really worth looking at and asking yourself. What are the stories that i'm telling myself. What am i putting other people and are these really true in. Say something about your dad i. I was also bothered that when you dropped in. You know to live with him. I was thinking like you. Okay yeah you're a grown ass woman you're making a raving you up but we've been apart for how long your way boarding school in the country that i've made my second home. Of course. I want you to stay with me. What was going on with your dad. Well you know honestly. I think a lot of it was because we did our family was. I mean i would say that as a family unit. We fractured when my brother. And i went to boarding school meant we basically split at that point And so i think to have me come back in and also you know. My father was born in china you know. He's he has a lot. He's been to the wars all that sort of thing. He has a certain kind of thinking. And you know. I think when i was ready to be parented and i could actually say it. Of course i was in my twenties. He was like. I thought we were done with us. Like not in a mean way. But i think he just wasn't really prepared to do it and he didn't know how i think that was actually the biggest challenge with my father. I don't think he's actually ever been a quote unquote parent in the way. That i might have wanted him to parent and then you know in the there rare again with this expedition. What is apparent supposed to do you know. I do wanna footnote that in writing. These essays is trying to very authentic to where i was emotionally in that omen. And what was the truth for me but actually My parents right now. They're still legally married and they're actually like best friends. They support each other very deeply when my father had some heart surgery. My mother flew out He visits her regularly. You know there's a day still file joint tax returns. They shared bank accounts. They are like two people who deeply respect and trust each other which is not how their marriage was there actual marriage when they actually living together and so they do live separately but a are very engaged. I think in a way that feels much more true authentic. And then i'll share some more about the family to both of them have read this I didn't ask permission. But i did say did give them the heads up. My mother is the one who is actually been extremely generous with me and telling me all of these stories and being honest about her own experience. I mean she could've skipped over. That i mean looks like enough time has passed and ionized visiting her. We obviously have a relationship. She didn't have to go backwards but she did. You know and that gave us something else to talk about so you know. I am actually very pleased with the way my connection is with both of my parents and i'll talk about my brother later Because it feels actually really clear and really open and really real i think And my husband comments this all this all the time. He's from a very close knit family but they don't talk about things in the same way. My family talks about things now. Not from but now so well. This is already been so rich. Unthinking we can't possibly cover all the chapters. su torino. but i do wanna still dip into a few that i think kind of give us the knicks conversational touch point. The photograph one is a great example. Of what i now understand to be. This micro essay ended also gets a little bit into your brother. So would you please read that okay. I had three Just a survey. Prophesy had three really short i think these are maybe not even one hundred fifty words. Each that are photographed. The photograph is not in the book and the idea is that you're using the photograph to paint this picture. But you're not letting the reader us the picture as as a reference point. You're using the word so this one is called photograph poolside selfie at the four seasons who while ally the four of us seated in a row my brother me my sister-in-law my husband. My sister-in-law is pregnant and my husband holds are five month old daughter in his lap..

"I was defiant. How could he kick me out. I was his daughter. It didn't matter that i was a professional woman in her mid twenties. Who made her own money and could now afford a place of her own. That wasn't the point except it was the point. I was trying to throw myself back into the nest. I didn't know that then and could only feel the raw hurt of being told that i needed to go. I hadn't been ready to leave. When i was fifteen and i was trying to reclaim those lost years with my parents but it was too late. I moved out my father. And i assume the relationship of two adults who lived in the same city. But we're too busy to see each other one day. I walked into the lobby of the beijing hotel to meet a friend for brunch. There was my father sitting in a chair in the lobby and reading the newspaper. We startled when we saw each other is if we were the last person we ever expected to see. Then i was overcome with what i can only describe as elation enjoy of relief at seeing this man who was my father. Daddy i said by voice broke. You'd think it had been years rather than weeks. Since i had last seen him. I gave him a long hug. Show e he said calling me by chinese nickname. He smelled as i remembered. His skin is close. The solidness of my father hadn't changed my eyes filled with tears. He hated tears. Made him uncomfortable. So after a few seconds. I step back. We both have placed to be a small distance between us. It made it easier to say goodbye. Thank you for reading that. Obviously this exceeded the micro. Say a three hundred word framing. What was the thinking behind exceeding that in this case. I'm glad you did. Because there's so much i'll get to in asking you about your relationship with your parents but just more the writing technical aspect of it. What was it that kind of compelled you to make this particular chapter longer. Well since i had written this entire collection as sort of a teaching text for the micro memoir and hybrid publishing program that i had developed. I wanted writers to see that sometimes. I think we talked about this earlier. Sometimes a story just need a little bit more room now. Could i have done this in three hundred words. I actually probably could have found a way. But i wasn't willing to lose what i felt. Were some elements. And i think that's the right decision but again you know some stories really lend themselves to a certain form so i knew this form is actually. This was actually a slightly longer essay night. Cut it back And so this collection allegiance is really a mix of both those short forms and slightly longer forms. But you know it was also showing. Sometimes you just honor the story in the space that maybe it needs and again. I'm very appreciative that you made that decision. Talk to us a little bit about your mom. From the time you begin to describe her as kind of devout christian persons so people didn't hear that part and then you inner fifties becomes like a buddhist nun and i still can't get over being a parent myself. Just how frank shu starkly franks. Un's is like you guys are too much trouble. I you needed to get out of my life. What kind of person do you understand her to be. And we're using fis that she took this huge turn. Well my both of my parents so we both my parents come from christian households You know there's a lot of work in the ministry with the ymca. They were very Active practicing christians both my mother and father however were sort of the black sheep of their families. So you know both Seekers in their own way both clear my father at the time. I think a little bit more than my mother. My mother now. Of course this way but having a i think a deep understanding a curiosity about themselves and who they were in the world so my mother we we went to trick for lewa. I was younger. But i think it was really kind of going through the motions. This this is what we do. This is how we were raised and both of my parents decided. I think for themselves at one point that that wasn't a true thing for them and my mother was always. I think searching spiritually. She's to read shirley maclaine books you know. She did other kinds of refutes very untraditional. Both my parents were actually not typical. Abc parents. i mean. You don't always see it on the off the page. Because i didn't get into all of those stories but my parents were very different from most immigrant china's american parents. Who were you know well educated. My father's Has his phd and my mother has masters At that came to america from taiwan But we're originally born in china. They just really had became very clear. Strong independent thinkers and buck against the norm. So when my mother so she didn't tell me of course. When i went off to boarding school she couldn't take care of me. She told me this. When i was in my fifteen and i was like okay. Thank you for sharing. But at that point you know. She'd been a buddhist for a while. And i really learned to understand. I guess Really how much that had had changed her becoming a buddhist. And it's changed me to you. Know we go regularly to visit her and I would not call myself a buddhist but I you know. We have sutras that. I read and i understand very much where she's coming from but i you know what i. I don't think i have this in the book. But actually right around the time that she was converting my brother was about to get married and she told me so. I was in my twenties or so i mean. I'm an older older woman at this point but still she told me i am no longer your mother and i just lost it because i didn't lose it in front of her but i was kind of like you know at all. Children are so grateful so of course part of me says like were you ever because obviously i had an ideal what mother was and what what they weren't and somehow in my eyes it wasn't lining up and i think she knew this too which is why it was always a problem because she was trying to live on a certain expectation and buddhism in a she's mahayana buddhist So buddhist not zander to baton. You know it's really about breaking those expectations those bonds in those labels right because whenever you have an expectation then you're going to be disappointed in life is suffering. And and she was right. You know when she did that We basically start from scratch. I could not say but you're supposed to do this or you're supposed to do that. I had to say this is my mother You know. I still referred to her as my mother. She had a buddhist name And it was. It was really. It actually really taught me a lot about expectation and how we actually unfairly project so much on another person so our relationship now is very close. But i also have learned not to take any it for for granted quote just because she is my mother and there's and when she started to do more things for both myself and my brother and then you know our kids i realized actually how precious it was and how grateful i was quite honestly for anything because i thought she was going to give us anything at all. And that's actually where you want to start. I mean that's actually the beginner's mind right the minute you go into a relationship with expectation. You're in trouble because the other person will almost certainly disappoint. Because it's something that you've got your baggage about right. You're supposed to take out the trash or you're supposed to you know help me do all the gardening or you're supposed to the kids dinner and whatever those old thinkings are can get in the way of a lot of relationship. So she Is part for buddhist practice. I would say she severed the labels and reset her relationship with with both my brother and me to sort of ground zero. But she didn't exclude us. We just had to start from scratch so now now she's actually more like a grandmother added that i would have thought she'd become but also because she's become more comfortable and more clear about where she is a buddhist. She's a full time practicing buddhist still. Yeah i mean Pardon me has wonder. Could she have pursued. This avenue spirituality without leaving everything behind. I don't think so..

"And so i would like you to start with one of the longer versions it. It goes beyond your three hundred words. But i i want us to start with this. One is called leaving because it tells so much of your own family story. That i think will help contextualize the rest of what you're going to be sharing with the listeners. Okay leaving my brother. And i are having tea in the basement of the communal buddhist house where she has lived for the past thirty years. She converted to buddhism in her fifty s ten or so years after my brother and i boarded planes for separate boarding schools on the east coast. I wanna thank you. She says for going away. There is a pickle at the back of my neck. The top the topic of boarding school has always been one. We've never really discussed. I keep my voice. Even what do you mean. She gives a tired smile. Her gray hair cut short the skin on her face pale soft. She's in her early eighties. In the smile. I see distance discomfort guilt relief. I couldn't handle your brother. She tells me. I needed space. I needed you to go. Okay i say but of course it's not okay. She needed us to go. It wasn't about setting us up for life college prep more opportunities etc etc. Your father was having an affair. She says she stops and corrects herself. Size maybe it wasn't an affair. Maybe they were. Just friends. And i was jealous. Things had not been going well for a while. I'd been on a trip to taiwan. Visit relatives the minute. I walk through the door. You told me what happened. She had been in our apartment. You are angry. You wanted me to know this. I do not remember this. I travel back the thirty some years to my teenage self. My father his business trips my mother's loneliness story and memory run together. It's hard to remember what was real. It was easier for me when the two of you left. She says you were so demanding. Always fighting an argumentative. It was too much for me to do alone. Taking care of you and your brother. How might this have played out in an alternate universe. Could we have stayed. would we have stayed. Could we have promised to be better. Children less than emotional drain on our mother staying out of the business of their marriage. What kind of family might we have. We become what kind of person might. I have turned out to be the decision to semi to an all girls boarding school in connecticut. Started with the possibility we've been living as patriots in hong kong for my father's job at an oil company. There is talk about moving to a part of mainland china where no english speaking school existed. My brother and i were of chinese descent but we did not speak chinese fluently. We were abc's american born. Chinese also known as bananas white on the inside yellow on the outside four years onto our expatriate enclave did little to build any new language skills. We could swear and could order food. That was it every catalog featured the same leafy. Campus leggy brunettes carrying armfuls of books. Tow head jocks brandishing. Lacrosse sticks the occasional asian student with his cello between her legs or leaning over a microscope. The teachers wore cement colored quarter pants.

"So Biden says, a whole bunch of stuff yesterday in his proposal to combat street crime. It was all colossal bull. You get it. He was cut one. Cue that up for me, Jim. So Biden supposedly found a solution towards the massive crime wave problem happening in liberal cities. Gee, I don't know Is it because liberals can't stand? The police want to defund? The police attacked the police Let Antifa and BLM run wild in their cities and have told criminals do it. We're going to do bail reform. You're going to get out. We're not going to prosecute you for looting. Just a quick question for the audience. You think that had anything to do with the crime spike in cities around the country run by liberals, just asking. Just asking a question. Pregunta. Just a question. You think that raises do it? Of course, liberals don't think that has anything to do with it. So what?

COVID-19: A Potential Coverup and a Potential Bioweapon
"I asked the question. I would think any sound sane journalists and there are so few of them left. Right now would be asking The questions are very simple one. Is there a criminal investigation going into what I believe was a cover up. An effort by the United States government and people within it. To scuttle an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus and the potential of a lab leak. And secondly, the big, bold Holy can't say it on the air question. Was it a bioweapon? Now I know the left were not allowed to ask that which again makes me only want to ask you more because there's really nothing you can say to get me to stop asking stuff. You know, I've after 46 years I've been smart enough to make my own life boycott resistant. I just don't care anymore. And the most dangerous people on the planet are those that just don't care about left the spears. Did we finance a bioweapon? Now? What made me think of this whole show today? Well, my life is 1 24 hour cycle of show preparation. I'd even do it my dreams because I love talking to you and making sure I never ever waste your time. And yesterday.

Breaking Down the Wuhan Lab Leak Hypothesis, Dr. Fauci and Other Government Officials Involved
"So it appears that there's some kind of and I'll get to this moratorium in a minute. The United States government has a moratorium on funding research that would make viruses more powerful. Gee, I wonder why we put a moratorium on that. Because we could create a whole bunch of really deadly viruses, and that would really suck. Sounds like the government finally did something right when they weren't doing something wrong. Hey, we shouldn't do research like that. But it appears a sub agency of the NIH led by Dr Anthony Fauci. May have approved this grant that went to this eco health alliance that eventually made its way to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where it's believed. Now, this virus may have leaked from Mm. Oh, it gets better. Here's the third part of this daily caller piece again. They're talking about this Christopher Park, who was the State Department person who apparently did not want to open the Pandora's box looking into this stuff, according to this Vanity Fair report.

The Nano another until Vanity Fair that an intelligence analyst struggled to find a report written by officials working at the Department of Energy Lab that Anna must be a whistleblower.

Rowe price for the all the vanguard etcetera etcetera hello you have to keep those now both their Iranian understand the brokerage accounts if you have been buying stock over the years you need to keep obviously those when you sell them so you can go back and calculate your cost basis and so forth but I was just wanting on the regular statements how long should you really keep those things well the good news is is that in recent years the brokerage firms are required to maintain the cost basis for you so you don't even need to keep those statements to maintain your cost basis the brokerage statements should have them on them and as far as the IRA's you don't have to keep them at all because anything that comes out of the IRA is going to be taxable TSO cost basis is not a consequence because you cannot take a loss and there's no deductible tax treatment for gain so for as far as retirement accounts you don't have to keep any of that and if you've been if you what you want to do is look at your brokerage statements and look in fact if they have the cost basis on the statement if they do you can throw away the statements oh okay well very good I know years ago they didn't they didn't do that you have to keep your own whatever yes the when you saw something it to keep it yourself but I didn't know how long you know how long you should keep all that stuff so that's a hundred percent correct yeah it back in the day you have to keep your records and it got to be a nuisance and we have to do a lot of calculations for clients in right right right right right and well I helped him your trading prevent them one of these days one with the date by the way bill is March fifteenth is to be at our office in Altamonte springs so so save all that stuff and bring it to our office will have coffee and donuts will do the show live from our parking lot hope to see you there okay thanks a lot for the help in America's mystery same to you response to you all right yeah the shred event coming up that's a great event one more point there may be some legacy stocks that he has in there that he just he does want to capture that cost basis a report it to the broker so that they capture it electronically so if it's not on the statements now yes exactly yes yes yeah you want to be sure that there's cost basis is written down somewhere really have it before you start trading stuff induct Ronnie had some comments about I think was John at call regarding these taking so security early and taking and reinvesting the money running what your observation well as John I've talked before his call the office and I love his strategy I mean it's a great strategy but there's two things we should point out first of all we had the asset base when he at age sixty two when he took social security yeah the asset base to fund his expenses while he was able to save and accumulate wealth from the social security that he was collecting that not everybody has the for exactly exactly but the the John I've talked a few times he's he's a great guy and I love the story he's from Ireland secondly had the discipline exactly not to a tap into it and read it and that's you know that that's what you need when you when you investors and that's just what is learned over time that allowed people say all of you late thirties and early forties as a source for you can't try to keep to a budget yes yes he is if he can earn that discipline yes it will pay off tremendously as retirement discipline is is critical as I say you know if and if investing in dieting was easy everybody would be rich and skinny no because we don't have the discipline to do that stuff there you go that's how it works eight four four two two zero zero nine six five the number.

"So just in terms of thinking as such. They really influenced me. Aesthetically they interest me in terms of the the music that context of their career as as i would continue exploring and really truly studying and researching the sixties and seventies through the nineteen eighties peace through the nineteen nineties even into the two thousands five decades worth of music each of uh stipe decades. They get a number one hit the late nineteen seventies. He's the b._g.'s became the only musical group in history to have five singles on the billboard top ten so now we've got not it just art and thought and romance and these ideas but really start getting me thinking about this this idea of success. The bee gees were immensely successful for a time saturday night fever with the top selling soundtrack act. I think one of the top selling albums of all time the b._j. Were huge by one thousand nine hundred seventy ninety seven seventy eight seventy nine huge with fame and success the only thing they didn't get in terms of critical acclaim. I know berry give has expressed was he would have liked an academy award for the music for a saturday night fever as they wrote songs energy so yeah you got thinking about that. The b._g.'s had me thinking about success really more than the actors do as rubbing momentum that john travolta and all them because i think the b._g.'s bear sick the depth of their success resonated with me more because it wasn't just like a hit movie but it was it was just the entity of the success the they broke all these records records these commercial music records and in my view they weren't just pop entertainers artists and still in my mind artists. Get leave it there for for now. The bee gees are so amazing an so richly complex. There's more to say about them so this is only the first installments of many other occasions in which i shall comment on them and the themes they talk about however. I was excited excited to finally bring this up to you because it's long overdue. Actually i did write once a hey sort of prose poems and essay kind of thing about the b._g.'s. I don't know how a copy of it anymore. It was back in probably two thousand fifteen and did it really do justice to how i wanted to delve into them though and and was mine on so many things politics philosophy career one sometimes forgets abou- how great music.

"That complicates love is complicated this this the nice way of putting i think the suggest that the movie where love can get quite complicated. I mean there is no happiness in west side story. There's no suggestion that love can be nice unlike greece so there's a c- sort of two competing ideas he is a loved one with this idea that love can be happy and sexy and as other adhere where love is just tragic. Perhaps yes you're better off. Not i mean nate locations. Perhaps you're better off not getting into it. The characters to just don't bother with love. Don't get killed in west side story. We'll not true. 'cause riff wasn't so romantic so maybe i'm off on that that one but still i think there's a negative connotation on love in that movie because there's no there's no element of a happy love love aspect that can persist in that story now it's it's in this context ext that on christmas and it's either ninety seven or ninety eight about eleven twelve twelve thirteen something like that my little brother ryan decides to give me for christmas these soundtrack to <music> saturday night fever motion picture soundtrack now the rationale behind it is i was a huge john travolta fan dan and therefore loved the movie saturday night fever the thing though is i never really cared one way or another about the music of that movie. I never watched watched saturday night. Fever for the b._g.'s i would watch the movie here the music and feel uttering different stores at actually pre saturday night fever. The only music i liked was greece and west side story. I guess that was the other thing. I should tell you i would listen to the soundtracks to those movies over and over and over again so i'd run around my basement every day singing summer nights and grease unreas- lightning and sandy and maria and tonight and i have a love then all these kinds of saw i would just sing them over and over again. That was how i chose to spend my time and in so doing i was really getting the opportunity to contemplate late possible meanings to these song lyrics but it was always in more of a musical theater context too because i wanted to be an actor so to me it was actually a lot more like acting practice. I think and desire something between a desire to really be john travolta danny zuko and a desire art at the very least and did not get to play either tony organic zuko at some point in my life. Those were early ambitions. I had by fourth fifth grade so ryan gives me the saturday night fever soundtrack fine. I wasn't unhappy happy about it and of course gonna listen to it. I had a disc man and great fun of christmas is actually use indulge in the gets. You get so brings meaning to the time so i did that and listening to the lyrics of how deep is your love that bees and it's the first time ever really hear the song my world changes. I don't know when where how i don't i don't know when i don't know the context or the i don't don't have an explicit and exact memory of when the lyrics begins resonate. I just remember the hearing worthy of that song in particular. I know you rise in the morning sun. I feel you touch me in the pouring rain and the moment that you wander far from me. I want a few you in my arms again and you come to me on a summer breeze. Keep me warm as you softly leave and it's me you need to show how deep is your love and i'm just thinking so so much as a young fellow can have much of a philosophy or ideology especially not being brought up religiously that is to say even though the jewish holidays were observed when the whole family got together only on the holiday and it wasn't about the bully in what we were celebrating so much of the tradition two different topics. My father was atheist so point being who celebrated christmas eastern on the less but not in a religious way only in the commercial gift giving celebration context or way so i hear this expression of romantic love that to me puts it in a way where all i all i can think is like amen or they're speaking to this mentality that i relate to so well and and the first time i'm really exposed women talapity in an artistic sense that i relate to really well and it's different than in the musical theater context from greece worse or west side story because i sort of those musicals stories and not more more basic expressions of thought and his wife actually propel me into the world poetry and thought because songs is to me a really good song really good poetry unless it's strictly narrative or has a highly narrative bent. I view as the poetic the articles of thought are expressing a thought that you're putting rhyme suet or some kind of meat or some kind of poetic today shin of it. B._g.'s ajay's thrust meet thus into this dual world of poetic thought and speaking to the kind of thoughts. I'm having and then i start listening therefore to the songs over and over and over and this is just the beginning all. I've got his a saturday night fever soundtrack but i i realize i want more. I am utterly fascinated by this this b._g.'s let me find out more about the b._g.'s and so for my birthday that same in year i get two best of albums by the b._g.'s one that covers their sixties and the other is a double cd set that covers their seventies so now i've got two decades worth of b._g.'s music and this blows my mind too because this is the first time other than i guess travolta. If you actors really wrapping my mind again on this idea of career a long body of work charting the evolution of the b._g.'s from about nineteen sixty seven to about nineteen seventy-nine just post fever with the spirits having flown album and it becomes it's not just about the romantic love element that that would be a huge part of it but the poetry expression of thought and poetic way but also such evolution of style you listen to the b._g.'s in the nineteen sixties. They sounds more like a folk band a lot of ways or sort of slow psychedelic pop of sorts. I guess <hes> then evolving into seventies pre saturday night. Fever is sort of there's a lot of experimentation because they go through a lot of go through a period of balladry and there's a lot of some of the most interesting lyrics go are you're right before saturday night fever when they are experimenting and trying to find themselves in different ways. I think the album mr natural nineteen seventy four. That's an interesting album by the b._g.'s cds are interesting thing to like. I've said about john. Travolta is a career with ups and downs and so are the beaches the b._g.'s nineteen sixty seven sixty eight sixty nine do really well. I have a lot of success and they have number ones in all of that on the charts then the band splits up because berry and robin getting into a fight over who should sing lead and and they come back together and they have two more hits and then their career falls down. I think it's like seventy two and in fact one of their albums would actually be rejected by their producer manager but that doesn't stop them from really writing some very interesting song lyrics anyway then you hear the story about the main course album as the story is told by berry very gabe. I think in a conversation with eric clapton they decided to move from great britain to miami and that's where the main course horse album is born and jive talkin then the story of nights on broadway is interesting because buried give injects his boss seto into their music for the first time and that's where their music takes us really interesting turn from an artistic point of view in that there are these songs mostly of a sort of folk rock folk pop rock is kind of bent into sort of arm beefing with their give injecting this falsetto <hes> which would then be compelled to emulate and do with him a lot of ball set out to the chagrin. I know of my blessed family. All of the audio related nightmares. I put them through with my false. Oh <hes> and but that choice particularly berry give to inject this falsetto oh into the singing was interesting. I actually appreciate it more now than i did that. Then it was just sort of abstractly fascinating it was more of a blunt emotion emotional intrigue. Now i appreciate it more as really artistic in that there is a real experiment with sound and expression of sound with his also and adds this za`z to the creation of the song that i don't really think any other musical group or artists ever quite shall we say i don't know that any other group has really ever approached the buscetto as a stylistic elements so with such commitment as b._j.'s did is very gifted in particular there are here and there that singing in a falsetto or that inject a little settle in their song but first of all. I'm barry gibbs case. He sing a hell of a good falsetto. I mean it was just like aesthetically pleasing to listen to he was able to do that not everybody can do that but add to it that he was very he made he made his boss seto like an instrument don't part of the musical creation and that way made the b._g.'s so unique one of the things i love about art is when art is exceptionally unique because that's when in its most in touch with the soul i believe the artist is we are also unique and only when you think tappin seater uniqueness astute tap into your individuality or vice versa and so the b._g.'s then i realized really speak to my interest and individuality and uniqueness. Maybe it's because of them that i discover that concept. I'm not sure which came first chicken or the egg right so now you've got the b._g.'s jeez shaking up my brain on so many different levels shaking up my brain philosophically with there are various so they thought like songs as i thought then on romantic love a lot of time.

"Episode of public comments a podcast presented in the form of extemporaneous personal essays by political bill south ical and end artistic millennial. That'd be me sean o'connor trying to wrap his mind around the complexities of the human an experience and they've got a really interesting episode three today. I mean to be clear yeah. I think every episode there's interesting otherwise. Why would i bother right today. Though i think what makes it unique is the it's a happy topic topic today. I'll be talking about the b._g.'s and this won't just be a conventional. Sorry for the other ha ha ha. I amuse myself i do sometimes this isn't going to be just a dry dry analysis of the d._g.'s or some recap of their career. The b._g.'s have created a body audie of work that is in fact extraordinarily personal to me deeply embedded in the most basic roots of my soul. You don't get much deeper within me than the beaches. You don't get much more foundational than the b._g.'s it. I mean you've got your bob. Dylan and you're charles bukowski who definitely influenced my earliest statics and you've got got michelle dame mantegna who is sort of my aesthetic mentor dr leonard <unk> gora view him as another mentor master of critical thought. Iran taught me some important philosophical ideas nietzsche. There are a number of people who have a tremendous degree of influence on me or people that i that i love. I love my dostoyevsky. My pru steinmeyer robert musil. I love my van gogh. I love my abraham lincoln and my brock obama virginia woolf. There are a lot of people that definitely are very important to me and who impact me quite deeply however i i don't know that you could impact me much more deeply and have such a shall. We say consequential quench dole long lasting impact as the b._g.'s have had on me. I guess the first question i'd have after raise in this uniquely happy mostly discussion and there are a few elements of sadness in this though but <hes> you'll see how and why that's relevant and how it's and it's ultimately louis defeated by a better perspective. We have to have a conversation about romantic love. What is is your stance on romantic. Love romantic. Love is an interesting thing especially if you pair with contemplacion's insulations on sexuality sex is not love love is not sex though you can have have sex with love you can have love without sacks so it's interesting the pairing of the two sex with love might just be the most erotic spiritual experience a human could have bor- within perhaps the top three or four. I mean it's it's monumental. It's huge <hes> sex in itself is not a miserable experience per se though it certainly certainly you run the risk of some awful things happening. If you don't have a good healthy outlook on on sex everything ranging from being in a relationship or having a sort of sexual interaction you don't really want to have to i mean there are some people who are as we know really quite abusive really quite abusive the whole metoo movement and has revolutionized our consciousness of sexuality new moved from the sexual revolution of the nineteen sixties to where there is talk of sexual liberation of women and freedom and embracing much more openness to the metoo movement which doesn't do away with that but instead asks asks us to be more thoughtful of how we're approaching our sexual liberation in my opinion to put it a little strategy of course but the bigger point bigger picture here actually don't want to go on and on about sex but i think you can't really talk about romantic love without without saying a few things about sex. It's important to ask what we really. I think about romantic love because there are a lot of different ways to think about it. I've wrapped my mind for example around certain questions about sexuality but it's my opinion for example on polygamy bore poly-amorous or free love love. Is there a certain value to monogamy. Is there a there's an expression and my friend the poet and philosopher bernard foy if you told me the phrase the the term. I don't remember where he got it from so. I don't need to give you sort of cited term. Here uses the term monogamous monogamous. Ish i think was expression of the news. Is there something to that. There's an interesting b._g. Song that the certainly would challenge just hours status quo view on sex called evolution and the suggestion of the song is a threesome in fact. I think the line goes. You said i could see you with another and we both get satisfied. Head one perspective b._g.'s may offer the b._g.'s are this creator of the same song <unk> who are the same creators at a song with yet another viewpoint nothing but the black of night. No one ever takes place. Gotta let the panama play not to worry laurie. My telepathy bring you into me not be no separation very erotic stuff off the b._g.'s will if one thinks about them in my opinion objectively or in a attempt to think with some clarity and critical thoughts you ask yourself what is the role of romantic fans love in our lives culturally while you could have one one conversation about marriage and the extent to which one would argue marriages just social convention propagated by patriarchal society. I don't know there's that conversation to have more there. Is this sort of popular joke. Through through the decades of american television in particular i love lucy was the one that really catapulted this one sort of dry humor styles cynicism towards marriage or you love to hate your spouse or something like that. <hes> who's afraid of virginia woolf giving you this idea of marriage as a very very sadistic and satan masochistic thing i come from a family where those is ironic thing. My father was divorced three times yet. He was a psychologist who specialized in couple's counseling and marriage counseling and wrote a book on marriage and was apparently quite passionate about the topic well. I say if you really want to think about about the role of romantic love and especially that i think implicitly of marriage though marriage almost in a more figurative sense i i would say there's marriage in the legal you know officially married kind of way but that sort of spiritual love like we are deeply. <hes> monogamously committed or some kind of like emotional connection. We have that roddick connection that we have that couldn't nothing else compete with kind of thing. Listen to the b._g.'s is to think of the as as a modern interrelation of the three wise men because they speak so passionately to the theme of romantic love though we're here and there they had songs on other topics good songs of other topics that speak to a lot of thoughts that had in the past i i would say it is they're five decade by decades worth of music chiefly about topics romantic love that make them one of the things that make them so unique uniquely interesting. There are other things and get to them but it's one thing just to say you know. I have family unmarried. Hello my spouse while the my partner as one thing the other question is how romantic argue plenty of people who ah lament that while they're remarried and maybe even happy the romance is not really there anymore. I say that goes away the honeymoon period you know if it makes five years. If you're lucky okay i don't know but there is something very interesting when you think about lyrics of the songs especially one of my favorite albums although it's hard to have a favorite but i think one that really lives in my seoul at the most electricity is probably still waters was released in nineteen ninety seven to songs one. I actually had quoted just a few minutes ago with you. There's another one line that goes like this and i can't can't help but think a lot about it. You were there when i was born. The very strength to carry on a miracle has come. It's fun song miracles happen. I think about i think about my marriage to great ashley constance o'connor why and how i feel about her her and you see i don't talk so much about ashley here because i made a vow to protect her privacy to the highest possible degree and i will not deter from that so there's only so much i can tell you about a wonderful connection we have but i definitely understand that feeling and that sentiment projected by the their articulated by the b._g.'s you were there when i was born the very strength to carrio. A miracle has come. How many times do we those of you who are perhaps the more more feeling type individual when you compare and contrast with all of the other aspects of life the extremely unique joy of just knowing this particular individual exists and adjust the framing of this person's personality in your mind and all the memories that come with it you know the <hes> the fact of the legacy of their soul his saw can bring you so much happiness talking about a deeply spiritual mode of thought and experience wadey on politics and a lot of philosophical office thinking romantic. Love is the stuff of great art romantic. Take love is there's just something so classic about. It isn't something so timeless about this theme. There's something so universal ursel about this theme. I think one of the most interesting things about romantic love. Is this even supposing you're a poly-amorous tight for free loving type person who just likes to have a lot of sex and have sex a lot of different people take away the concept of lust take away the concept of.
