"That night that I did a show, I had the prince who had hired me to be there. One of the many princes in Saudi Arabia, but I was hired to be there by a prince, and the ambassador from the United States asked if he could be there in attendance. And I was like, yeah, absolutely. And so I'm on stage, and I'm looking at the front row, and in the front row, it's the prince who asked me to be there, and an American, the ambassador to the United States, and they're sitting next to each other. And I'm looking at them, and I'm like, these two fools would have never. These two people would have never talked to each other or been in the same room with each other, if not for a comedian. And so I was just like, wow, you know, unity through laughter. That's where that happened. It's like, wow, it took some dumb comic from America to go there. To bring people together. And I just thought that was awesome. And so that's what I was born. Unity through laughter. And so that's been everything. Because I will look out in the crowds and I'll see people in the room that I don't think would ever be around each other, otherwise. If you know what I mean, especially in certain parts of the country where it's a little tense, man, you know? I saw a show where there was a guy with fresh tattoo of big old confederate flag. You know, and I'm just like, oh wow. Here we go. And you know, I feel like for some reason, because my comic, a lot of times, people don't see the race. They're like, oh, he ain't Mexican. He's fluffy. And you see all the different people that are in the room. Like, I'm like, wow, I don't know if these people would be, you know, around each other. Otherwise. So that's always been the thing. The humor brings people together. And that's why I'm not trying to be divisive. That's why, you know, make it the rule, avoid politics, avoid religion, avoid sports, just be funny, be silly, have a good time, share stories, talk about things that everybody can relate to or that the majority can relate to, and you know, speak from a good place. If you're out there and you have an agenda, I mean, it's one thing to be frustrated about certain situations, but ultimately you don't want to make people feel bad about themselves. Yeah. What did data shade once mean to you? And now what does it mean to you? You still are in California. I'm sure you take the freeway and you might drive. Yeah, I drive on all the time. And if I have somebody in the car, I point, I go, that's right there. See that right there, that's the exit. That's worked. That's where history happened. That's where it went down. And then what's funny is that the Goodyear blimp flies over every day. I saw it three times yesterday. Like we're literally so close to it, and it's just like, there's my blimp. I tell her, that's my blimp. It's my plan. So now it's time for the final segment of this show. It's called the laughing ground. It's like a lightning round, but it's a comedy podcast so I call it the laughing ground. Is there a joke

"Don't have anything in writing. And so my manager at the time had to actually sit and listen to one of my sets and write the whole thing out and give it to Comedy Central. And then when I did the half hour, it was so off of what she had written. And then they're like, hey, this is what you turned in, and that's what you did, and she's like, look, I'm sorry. The kids all over the place, you know? Just me, for the longest time, I knew what I wanted to do, but it was never verbatim. And so I was always flip flopping. I'd start here and end there. I had always get to the end of the finish line, but that's we're always different. And so a buddy of mine, he would always listen to my sets and he goes, dude, he goes, you can have a bit that'll last 15 minutes. He goes and do it tomorrow, and it'll last 5, because you'll take stuff out. And then the next it'll be 20. I don't know how the hell you do that. And I'm like, yeah. So that was the way I was doing it forever. And the last special before the roger stadium one, I started working with a couple of guys that basically, they weren't writing for me, but what they do is they would listen to my set, and then they'd, they basically do bullet points and break it down and time codes and talk about good segways and ways I can get in and out of these bits for me. And so they would help me to kind of structure and kind of stay on point. Because it was like, it was homework. I knew that it was beneficial. And anytime you're working on a special, you need to get close to the time. You want to make sure that you hit your mark and that you're able to get all of your material in, you know, and not have it edit it out. The whole is doing like a talk show in a talk show for example, like The Tonight Show, they'll give you four and a half minutes. And that's the time you get. And if you go past that time, then that eats into your potential couch time that you have with whoever you're talking to. And a lot of times I'd go over and so by the time I get to the couch, and there he is, he's super funny. Catch him at the chuckle hut. So time is always a thing and having people work with you to help bring you in and focus. It's been very helpful. Because even though I've been doing it for over 25 years, I still I'm still scatterbrained. It's interesting because I also imagine as you get to bigger venues, there's a certain amount of consistency that you want to make sure you're giving everyone the same level of quality of whatever the show is. And it's one thing to be like, you want to make sure I think a lot of it, especially your fans, want to make sure if you're having fun or it feels like you're having fun, that's part of what they're there for. But I imagine, you know, as the bigger the biggest shows, the more annoying it is to get to the venues, the more parking costs more money, it takes longer to leave. If you want to make sure you're giving everyone the same quality and I think what it sounds like, a lot of this is like quality control. You're like, oh, I'm going to give them the full story. I have a sense of what the show is going to be like. You can think about pacing and stuff like that. So what I like to do because I work so much that it's hard to take that time off to be able to not necessarily take time off, but where is this material going to get home? Where is this material going to get crafted and molded to be presentable? I literally have to work out new material at these arena shows. And so because there's no time to go work it out of the club. I got to breathe sometime. You know what I mean? So what I like to do normally is my set's always go along. So once I hit the hour mark, pretty much after the hour, it's like, okay, now that I'm in the second hour, this is where I'm going to work out material and if people get upset and I tell them, I go, look, I've already fulfilled the contractual obligation. The show is technically over. This is now a hangout. And I'm just going to keep going. If you guys are cool. But if it's not funny, you can't get mad because you didn't pay for it. This is free. Well, you get what you pay for. And then that's where I'll work out bits. I'm not saying I'm working out bits, but that's actually what I'm doing. It seems like once you get on stage, it's hard for you to leave. You love being in that space, that it's I imagine, if anything, you're like, you don't want to feel rushed at all. And you want to get to the space where you're like, we can just, this is how you like hang out with people. It's like thousands of people and you're on stage doing what you do. You mentioned this sort of time crunch. What is the pressure like from Netflix? I think to a person at home when they hear like, oh, they signed a deal to do a special. It's like, oh, you get to it when you get to it. Were there saying like, oh, well, we have a backlog we need to start moving. What is the sort of pressure? What are the conversations like that to get you to sort of make sure you get to it to certain deadline? Well, when they present you with the deal to do specials, I think initially you're ready to do that first one. You're like, okay, hey, let's do this. We want to do this and so it's just, all right, scheduling. Whereas the second, a third, or there's people like, for example, like Chris Rock, who has, I know he's got a deal to do another special. And I don't know when he's when they said that, you know, that it's happening. The way that they structure their contracts. And I can't speak for I don't know how. But with mine, you get paid according to deadlines that you meet. And this is how, you know, it's not just like, here's money, deliver when you can. No, it's like, okay, here you go. Here you go, and here you go. Little nuggets along the way until you get to the goal. During the pandemic, they definitely wanted content. They were like, we need a special as soon as possible. And so it was one of those things where there was nowhere to perform. So they're like, okay, we understand pandemic slowing things down. You can't deliver special right now. Because there was like, hey, we wanted it by a certain time. So. I haven't felt pressure in the past because I've done multiple specials with them, but this last one I felt like because it was not any content coming

"Best chance you have of anyone else liking it. It's the best chance. Better than any better than any second guessing that you can do or any opinions from someone who knows better. If you love it, if you collectively love it. And would be excited to play it for your Friends. There is no better test. That's it. Absolutely. Because it was like when we were meeting up in these sporadic times and these two would be mine or I would be in a layer, whatever it was. In the weeks after we'd hung out and done something, no matter how raw it was, in the weeks afterwards, I'd be working some other shit. And I'd be like, God, I'd just be listening to that drum. I'll be going back to that thing, and I'd be like, failing that thing off, like, oh, that makes me look in the mirror, and that's why I'll do. Well, that's what I want to fucking do. Do you know what I mean? It was like and they'll be doing this sort of stuff that people might think is cool or makes money and where everyone's like, yeah, I'm fucking hit it. You know, I really did. And when I met Ari like ten years ago, I was sick of people telling me my work looked great and I just felt nothing. Honestly, when I looked at it, I was kind of like, I felt like I really didn't look good. And I'm good at what I do when I do, you know, I'm kind of creatively, I'm pretty good at shit and stuff. And it's like this thing where I just didn't feel anything, man. Being Ari, it was like this weird thing where I was working on stuff. This is before we started. It was like, I would work with him. And the work that happened and the thing I thought I'd feel like legit. Yeah. I would. And then that would be the same feeling that would then carry on the three of us. Like one would leave, I'd be like, damn. Swimming in it. You know there's that's just got something. It's got that thing. And if you think of all of the people who make things trying to get on the radio and don't. Exactly. Exactly. Just your taste that you never think would get on the radio and that gets on the radio, trust yourself. That's it. That's the test case. Remember that, remember how it started? Thanks, man. Thank you. We needed that. It's funny. It's funny, it's funny that you say. In my case, it wasn't even trust myself. It was trust them. Yeah. And trust the, I was like, Jacob, this is the best music you've ever done. Yes. Fuck it. Literally. Like, 'cause I was like, well, no, I need to do this and I do this and I'd be like, Jacob, just chill the fuck out. That's what y'all want to do. All right, that's fine. You want me to do what? Okay, fine. As a rule, try everything. If you have an idea that's different, try it also. That's one thing we do rule like that. But you never know. You never know. I've tried some stuff. But you can only. It doesn't always work. It's fine. No, it's fine. But he's not process is fun, you know? It's like, we love to just even recut take everything out here, just vocal and vase or something random, and it's like, that's exciting to us. That's where we'll just Jacob will just give us something amazing. And then we can nerd out. Because that's the thing with bloodline. Stranger. Even with stranger. Completely reworked. And I came back and I cried. I was like, what the hell? But again, it's just, you can't try everything if you have a fear of anything, right? And trust is that that's what I was trying to say. It's like the one thing I've learned and the one thing that I'll share here right now if I was to give any advice to anybody in my short, very, very short yearlong music career. Yeah. I'm only talking like you the fucked up thing I hope. I'm ready to make a video. 'cause you gotta go and I'm on a eulogized about this right now. But I do feel it's important just as an artist is to share that trust is the one thing that will be the key to workflow. And if you trust each other if you trust, I'm safe to try something. Like you got to nurture that environment. That's true. Right. Because you're in that environment for people around you to feel safe. They've got trust you to feel safe to try shit and be wrong. Nothing wrong with being wrong. And the thing is, is like, that is what is what kind of we've been building that garden. And I will say Ryan's been a very strong part in that for me and I think because, you know, I think Jacob and I have a sense to kind of be hard on ourselves in certain ways. Cosmos genius is dead. It's a common trait that goes. It's always there to encourage and even stuff that we might not think is something that we are just trying. He'll be like, no, keep that. That's sick. Like really cool. And then you listen to it and it's like that has been invaluable in this experience for anyone, because so cool. I also say this in life in general. We need to create spaces where people are safe and they can cut the bullshit. Yeah. 'cause a lot of us are doing bullshit, that's not real. Musically in life. Absolutely. And we're making these standards and creating these stories for people and people, you're 50, 60 years old, and you still don't have a clue of who you really are, what you really want, what is really in your heart. What's really, you know, and so you've been bullshitting for 50 years. Yeah. Now you're 65. And now you've realized, oh, I'm actually gonna need all that. I really don't have to do all that. I really don't. But even musically, that's what I think we've created where it's like, Jacob, we know the truth. You can't bullshit me in here. Jake, come on, really? And that is what my prayer is that the world is able to have that. But we can stop bullshitting each other. Beautiful. Whatever it is. Whatever that is. Whatever it is. This is what this is what brings me peace. This is what I don't want to fucking work a job or whatever it is. You know what I'm saying? Yes. And even if it's even if you have to do something that you're uncomfortable with, at least the truth is known. Yes. And it's acknowledged. Yes. 'cause then you're able to move. Sorry. Absolutely. Beautiful. You never have to apologize to me. You never have to apologize. I've won these rants and I get lost in space and my point is. It's beautiful. Yeah, amazing man. All good. Congratulations on thank you, guys. Yeah, congratulations on finding each other and congratulations on making beautiful stuff. Thank you. Thank you. Nothing better. Cool. All right, thank you for doing this. Thank you. Thank you. Pleasure so much, yeah. Thank you so much. Thanks again to Gabriel's. I also want to give a shout out to the folks who made that live session sound as beautiful as it does.

"That was Gabriel's performing their song angels and queens live for us at Ireland studio and Austin, Texas. Here's the rest of their interview with Rick Rubin. How did it go from the three of you to what we're experiencing you guys playing as a live band? How did that happen? That happened I guess post COVID because we had it kind of all came to a head a bit in like we had been working on a really sporadically so that loyalty song kind of came out and then some labels, people who I had been working, I was in another band that was also signed to a label and they started reaching out to us like, what's this? Do you have more music, stuff like that? And then we were like, oh, no. And then we just kind of got together back at my place. And wrote a bunch of stuff. One of which is actually one of those songs we played here, which was that was in 2019, then we just started kind of putting it together. I have some friends Ryan us of friends Jacob esse friends that play. So we had this little community of musicians that we would bring in and then it was like COVID actually our last session in the desert, we wrote another song called stranger and then we were like, we had one of our songs master this one called in loving memory and he was like, maybe let's put that out now because there's nothing going on, whatever. And then we could kind of put it into the ZP. We had some songs at this point. Then we put that song out and then it gained a lot of traction. Like Giles Peterson played it. Amazing. And Virgil Abloh played it on his radio show, which was amazing. And we were just like in the same week. Yeah, it was in the same week, so then all of a sudden we were like, let's get together this vinyl. And we put it together, put it out in December, and I remember just like, we put it on bandcamp and just seeing the bandcamp notifications on my phone. It was kind of crazy. I was like, wow. This is not so it started getting picked up, you know, BBC, especially in the UK, they started really supporting it. And you know, it took a bit of time, you know? And there was a lot of talk, a lot of people coming in, you know, labels, managers, different people. And I guess around early 2021, we got like a DM from our manager now, Duncan. And Duncan Ellis and we were big fans of Celeste. Who he also managed. So in our eyes, we're like, maybe we could make a cool song with her, you know, something like that. We could, you know, I like what he's done, you know, and it seems like she's doing cool work. And we were all obviously, you know, trying to figure out how to make money and stuff like that. So it felt like yeah, exactly. And then it was like, all right, it feels like a right time because we had kind of independently. We self released that first EP, you know, me and Ryan and Jacob, we invested all our own money into it. You know, we did a Calvin Klein campaign that had a bunch of our songs in it. And that was a really good marker for us, 'cause that was like this really high end job. It was actually very artistic, and we were just trying out these little ideas of new songs on it and then people were liking it. And it was like asking for the songs on the carbon climb. Very different from the tent music that they had. So we just like, they'd give us temp, but then we'd just give them a whole different song on it that was like completely different. And then they would just go with it. And we were like, that's cool, you know? Does it start as a jam, essentially? Is there a musical jam? There's a musical idea. Is there a vocal idea or you'll hear an instrumental track and start singing just whatever comes. How does it work? It's so usually they've done a musical kind of idea of something. It always starts as a song. But including the melody. No. No. Just as the music tracks. It's written. Now sometimes in their music discovery, there may have been a melody that they may pick up or whatever. I see. But we try to keep it as raw as possible. And then when I come, then we sometimes there might be another idea. Sometimes we'll have a conversation. Sometimes we would have watched like when we did glory, we watched the Tina Turner Doc. And then that kind of helps influence it. Or in the music starts, but it's just a starting place. So the music changes. The melody chain interchanges a few times in the process. But for me, it's really allowing the song to speak. Yes. Like allowing it to say what it wants to say. Sometimes like taboo, when we were writing it, and I wanted to add this. Let me just add, I just want to add this part where this musical break in is like, you know, the song doesn't need that. It doesn't make it better, yeah. It doesn't need that. Why are you just going to shove this in there? And so it's really allowing the music, the song, the lyric, the story, to have its way. The thing that I love is that we really do write the songs completely together. That's a real thing. But there's also a thing because of that, we don't allow our egos in the room. Yes. When we're doing that. So I gotta have mine or we don't have that issue because it's ours. And it really gives the song the space to do whatever it wants to do. It's beautiful. It sounds like if you're doing that, even if you were doing that by yourself, there's not really room for ego, because do you know what I'm saying? If you want it to be its best version of itself, it's bigger than us, you know? It's coming from a different place. It's coming from a different okay, I'm gonna be really charging. So we got this thing off the holy ghost, right? Yeah. I'm very churchy. Yes, but I believe differently. I think love is for everyone, even if I think we're supposed to believe differently. And that's fine. And there's nothing wrong with that. I think there is this other thing in the universe, maybe you call it the universe, maybe it's energy, maybe it's something that everything carries, and I think music carries that same thing. And if you just let it lead the way and let it have its way, it will, but oftentimes we get in the way. Yeah. I mean, that's like famous just the life, you know? It's this thing where people just can't get out there and go down with. You know, and it's like, in terms of like how it starts usually with the music, like the starting process, usually Ariel of written the music, like get the structure of this is what I mean about what, like I've learned from him and he with a Gabriel songs, he'll write the music of the verse, the chorus, the bread, there'll be a structured thing that's very clearly like developed and laid out for little card and then he'll give me a call. I'll come in, we'll tweak a little bit, but it's usually he's written and done it. It's already down the line. What my important that is very minor compared to what Ari does. And then at a point when we'll be like, all right, this is something that we can then bring the J curve because you just have to give him a lip. I mean, you've heard he's like he just needs a lick. And it all sometimes be like it'll be like, we've worked through a bunch of tracks. And we take through what feels like it's going to serve the interesting thing. I imagine sometimes depending on one thing. It happens again where it's like, oh, the vocal wants it to go in this direction. Yeah. Exactly. We thought it was going to go this way. That's exactly what I was going to change it. I go, you know, hey, can we try to do this or can we change the key or can we but there has to be trust that, oh, he's really doing this for the sake of the song. Yes. But there's also a thing. Here's the other thing. And this is where having being securing yourself or like being okay. I had a job. They had their thing. This was literally just for the love of the music. Yes. That's the key though. Doing it for the love of the music, that's why it's good. If it ever turns into a job, it won't be the same. It's funny. It's conversation since we did kind of get into, you know, a partnership just being honest. It started, you know, we were like, you know, we're here. We ourselves, and I'm like, you know, we all felt like this is gonna be amazing. And then, you know, a lot of other forces, a lot of people come and start trying to tell you how this can be bigger and how this can be better. And then to me and us, it felt like I'm like, you know, I don't want to look myself in the mirror and have a song I hate, even if I'm

What they don't prepare you for is the social media craziness 'cause they never had social media before. So I was not like it was crazy the comments people say, they say a lot of nice things to say a lot of bad things. I wasn't ready for it. No. And then they don't prepare you for the fall after. 'cause they make you feel like if you do the show and you do well, I did play 5th that no matter what and actually someone told me this, you'll have enough money to live on for the rest of your life. That was a lie. Yes. So I get off the show and you have nothing. I had a couple deals here and they were off and on, but it was a struggle like being an artist. It was like starting over from scratch even worse because people want to touch you because you're on the show. You're on the show. So I have some ups and downs and went through that and in and out had a church gig here out of church there that I had to management situation that into kind of badly they canceled all my gigs for the rest of the year and dropped me. And kept the money. Wow. And so I was like, well, I'm going to get a job. And I worked for a sunglasses company called gooder in that helped kind of push me into this. Like I had never been an environment where I was like loved and told to be myself and be comfortable in who you are. And even in music, I had never really felt that way because you got to think, I had my start writing. So when you're writing for the artist, you're writing in their style, right? And so I never had a space to really find what naturally just comes out of my body. Yeah. Right? Even in church, I'm doing a church thing. I never got to naturally just comes out, but this has allowed me to really just whatever naturally comes out. And they've pushed me to do that. And it's been a safe place for me to do that. Beautiful. So it's just been absolutely life-changing between gooder and these two white men, even though he's not why he's technically Armenian American. It's been it's been between gooder and then it's been in the last few years. I never, you know, you dream of a thing, but you're like, I don't know if it's really gonna happen. I don't know. I don't know what I would have done. Tell me more about your family. I grew up in Compton, my father died when I was 12, really suddenly my mom is from Georgia. My grandmother is from Georgia, where they moved to LA when they were younger. When my mom was very little, my grandmother remarried, her husband died in a car accident, and she had never worked. So my family experienced a lot of death in tragedy, like a lot of it. It's kind of nuts. My uncle committed suicide a few years ago. He jumped off a building and it's been like, it's nuts, but there's this thing. I kind of interview my grandmother when we rereleased the EP and for her to experience all that. And she said she was she learned really young. There are no mountains too high to climb. Yes. And I was just like, oh my God, this little lady. This is what she thinks. And there's a little bit of me that kind of feels that way too. But anyway, I'm an only child, only grandchild on my mom's side. So I was very kind of sheltered. And I grew up in cop. This is a little hood. You know what I'm saying? But my mother did everything that she could to make sure that I was able to experience other things and know that there was another way of life for me, where she fucked up, was she made me feel like I could be anything. And so I really believe that. Even sometimes when you don't, like you have those moments where you doubt it and you're like, nah, it's not gonna happen. There's always this little bitty piece of me that's like looking at $10 million houses in Pasadena. But maybe this band wouldn't have happened if you didn't keep that thought alive. You know, it's impossible to know impossible to know. And I'll say this, the world and the music industry in particular has not been a place that I felt like Harvard individuality. It did not feel like and this is I'm not bashing anyone. No, no, not that beautiful experiences. I've worked with some of the most amazing people in the industry. But it doesn't harbor people being themselves. It doesn't harbor people being comfortable in themselves. And then you even get people who air enemies, ministry, he really shouldn't be. Because it's not a safe place for that people that's really their heart. And so with this experience, it's allowed me and pushed me to like, this is the most myself I've ever been. Congratulations. How beautiful is that? That's crazy. It's crazy. I'm going to tell you how old I am and I got. For to now be at this place where I'm actually starting to look at myself and be okay with myself. Yes. Like when I was younger and fine and had a body yada yada yada yada. But oh my God, what would have happened if I was able to embrace myself and my voice and who I and really find my real voice then. Oh my God. Yes. It's like this long and my hope is that when people grab onto that, like when they see our shows like, oh, a shit. Let me be myself too. And find out what really makes me happy. What really makes me whole, whatever that is. Even if it's not, because I think our people are doing shit, they don't really wanna fucking do. You wanna fucking work that job. Find what really makes you happy. I'm sorry I'm going on a rant. It's beautiful. I am the most happy with these guys. Yeah. I am the most happy. I wanna suggest us. Yes. These fucking white boys. Who are completely different than me. Yes. Who are like, oh damn, these are my brothers. These are my Bros. That's beautiful. And it's been the best experience in my life. I'm sorry. No, I love it. I love it, it's beautiful. And now hopefully you'll be in a position to turn other people on to that possibility and maybe it's not just through the shows, but maybe there are other ways. It would be interesting for us to talk about that and figure out what that is because I love the idea of spreading that message because ultimately it's good for everybody. It's good for it's good for you to feel like yourself, but then we get to hear the music that's true coming from you because you feel like yourself and if artists don't feel like they can be themselves, what do we get to listen to? What do we get to what do we get to see it all becomes the same? You know, it's all just everybody trying to be someone else and none of it's interesting and none of it's good and nobody cares and people making it don't care about it. The people scrolling through what they're going to choose don't choose it because it's all the same and it's all cookie cutter and it doesn't matter. So the fact that you're having this experience, you get to work on something different, that excites you, it's the best advertisement for more good things to come. And when I say more good things come, I don't mean copying what you're doing. I mean, people doing their own thing. Whatever it is. Okay. I'm ranting with you. You're preaching to the converted. Exactly. They couldn't have said it. You pretty much just said exactly what goes on when we're off where between ordering Chick-fil-A and watching a Britney documentary.

"Becomes what it is. It's not like 50 50 teach and learn and you know it feels great. Yeah, likewise, it's like this thing where, you know, somebody once said to me ones that that's the definition of joy beauty and happiness is when an energy failed is in 50 50 balance with any other energy field. So when the experience of joy beauty or happiness occurs and that is like teaching and learning becoming the same thing. By the way, that's what I really, truly believe that the songs that we have that are the good ones come out of that. Yeah, beautiful. When did you start singing church how old were you? So here's the thing. I really wasn't that good. When I was younger. If I could just be honest, I'm ready for this deep dive. Were you in the choir when you were young? I wasn't allowed to get into the choir until I was like ten or 11 because you have to be filled with the holy ghost and stuff as this whole thing. And then when I got in the choir, I was loud and I had all this stuff, but I didn't know what to do with it. And the church I grew up in the past or sons were kind of famous musicians, so we had like all these amazing singers and musicians and stuff. So there wasn't really space for this kid who's a mess. And not in a negative way, it just, I just didn't know what I was doing. Yeah. It's like you have a toolbox and you're just throwing a hammer at a nail. It's like, what is he doing? And then I started singing in school. I mean, I kind of got recognized pretty quickly in school 'cause once you, once you put me on the path, I can like fly. So in school, they put you on a path and when I got my senior high school, I realized I wanted to do music, but it was kind of like not realistic. And so I was gonna join the military. They offered me a hundred grand to join, sometimes I still regret it. Not going. So I moved on, I kind of moved out pretty much my mom was like, if you ain't doing that, you ain't gonna be in this house singing. So I went to college, not studying music. I took a voice class and the label was like, you were born a thing. So I was gonna do Costco music. That was my thought. 'cause that's a plan. I can go to school, I can get a degree, and even if I'm in the chorus at the Met, I'll make 75 grand a year. I can do that. You'll be a working working singer. Yes, I can do that. And then I started answer going to Craigslist and answering ads on Craigslist, but there was an ad for a hip hop artist looking for background singers for a Christmas project. So I went auditioned by saying I believe in you and me ended up being Nate dog. I don't know if you know who Nate dog is. So it was an 8 dog. And when was this? This was 2006 or 7. So a while ago. Oh my God, yes. Yeah, you've been doing it for a while. Oh my God. Yes. A lot of time. Okay. So I did that. And then and was that a good experience? It was a great experience. I dropped out of college. Great. Great. I dropped out of college. I was like, I'm gonna be a singer. That was it. It was like, nay dog, and then he kind of took, I missed the train one night, and I lived maybe a three hour train ride from the place and so I spent the night and we talked and I started writing with him and that was like my and he had a stroke and I went and worked for a while and then idol and then that was a beautiful experience. Tell me about that. I know very little about that whole world. It's great. First of all, how do you get picked? How many people are there competing to even be on the show? Maybe a 125,000, I think the year I did it a lot. There's a lot. So how does it get down from a 125,000 to you? Wow, this in four times. You should tell Rick how are you on the show? Oh, yeah. You should tell him that. This is like, this is a big part of what I really admire. Auditioned four times. Yes. Twice the year I made it. They added LA last minute and I went by myself. I had just got a job. And I was like, oh my God, I got job fuck this American out of bullshit. They're gonna tell me no anyway. Well, job hired too many people, so I had to wait a week to train. My grandmother, I didn't have any money, she gave me $15 for the bus. I didn't have my ID at the time. I should not have been able to audition. I was able to audition, I made it through, and then I was like, hey, I have these tickets, you know, 'cause you can't have an open ticket. So let's say today, you ran a stop sign and you got to take it. You can't be on American Idol. It has to be paid off and cleared. You can't have any pending court cases. So I had tons of them. I got a ticket for ditching school. I had a ticket for not riding the train without my ticket. Hopping on the train. So I had warrants all kinds of stuff. For like stupid. Little things. So I go there, and I'm like, okay, so I was like, hey guys, I have these tickets, they're like, why don't you make it first? 'cause you probably ain't even gonna make it. Right. So just chill out, but I let them know. So I go through all the steps and I finally get to the celebrity judges, and I make it. You're going to Hollywood. So then they send you to a private investigator. They ask you all these questions about your life. Yeah, have you done this? Have you done this? Have you done this? Have you been here? Have you been there? Have you been here? And they say it's to protect yourself, but also to protect the show. So if anything comes out, they know what's going on. So go through all that. And then I was like, well, I have these tickets. It's like, okay, well you have to have these tickets cleared up by Thanksgiving because Hollywood week is in December. And you can't come here with these tickets. And I was like, okay, I'm on it. So the next day, in the same clothes, I go to the courthouse, and I go, hey, have you sick? I want to give them cleared up. They go, okay, well, you can get a court date for January 5th. It'll take care of the warrants, but you'll I was like, no, that's not gonna work. 'cause I can't wait till Jan, I need to see a judge right now. Well, there's no available time, so you can't. Kiss grits, or you can pay for it, it's $5000. Well, I got $5000. Yeah. And I wouldn't even think to ask my grandma to ask for $5000. So I'm not to go on American Idol. Like, are you stupid? That's not gonna work. So it quickly cocked up an idea. I was like, leave it alone. Don't touch it. So I go next door, I go to the police station, and I say, hey, I'd like to turn myself in. I have warrants. I need to go to jail. I'm happy as a lark. And they're like, oh, well, no, we can't, we can't do that. I was like, well, yes, you can. I have Lawrence. Well, no, these are like, these are trained tickets, buddy. We're not gonna take you to jail for train tickets and stuff. Like, we're not. And I was like, no, I really need to go. And I was interesting is I was an explorer at this same police station the year before. I don't know what an explorer. As far as like a little mini police officer. Oh, cool. So they like train people in the hood to get them comfortable with the police and then it's a feeding thing. You become police officer. I understand. So I was ironically unexplored. The same police station. So you felt comfortable going there. Yeah, I was like, take me to jail, bro? They would not take me to jail. So I sat there for an entire hour, two hours goes by. I'm not gonna say, can y'all please take me? I call my grandma, my grandma, I'm my mother go to jail. She's like, no, what are you talking about? And then my phone goes dead 'cause I don't realize how serious jail is. Yes. Anyway, fast forward. So they finally take me to jail. So when they finally after like hours and hours, I'm like, I am trying to do the right thing. Take me to jail. I really only want to go so that I can see a judge because I have to, and then I can get the tickets taken care of. So they finally picked me up so I get in the car and he's like, okay, what is your deal, bro? What is your problem? You're a good-looking guy. What the fuck is wrong with you? You're trying to go to jail. What's the problem? So I say, well, I auditioned for the show. And this is the only way I can see a judge. He was like, oh, okay, cool. So he's like, well, you shouldn't go to jail with those nice clothes on. This is jail. So I was like, I was like, well, he's like, well, step, I'll stop by your mom's house and let you change clothes. I think he was trying to like, now that I'm thinking about it, like hopefully someone will come and help me and tell me, don't go to jail, like it's not a game. Yes. So I get to my mom's house. She left the door open for me. He goes, she left the door open for you. Why would she do that? And I was like, well, 'cause my mom has think about giving me a key to her house. This is her house. And I don't live there. So he goes in, gun drawn, the neighbors see him going in. Wow. Guns are drawn. Yeah. So he brings out my clothes. I change clothes. I go to jail. So I go to Lindsey. I'm sorry this is a long story. That was fun. I'm curious. I go to remember what y'all do my mug shot. I'm like, I gotta look fierce. It looks too happy 'cause I know I know that if I make it on the show and I do well, which is what I'm hoping will happen. Yes. This is gonna come out. Yeah. So I do my face, I do my photo, so I go to the courthouse, right? Now mind you, this is like stupid ticket bullshit. Yes, yes. So it's gonna get clear. It's gonna be done. Of course. So I go, and he's like, okay, great. All right, well just dismiss the ticket you're fine, buddy. Don't worry about it. It's good. You've been in here. You've been to jail nowadays. It's all taken care of. Well, that didn't happen. So after I see the judge, I go back and it's getting later and later and I'm like, hey guys, I'm supposed to go home and they're like, yeah, sure.

"Angeles. The valley. And I kind of stopped doing music in college. I was classically trained on the viola or whatever, so I was kind of playing in orchestras and stuff, but then I lost interest in being a professional musician, whatever. So I was studying linguistics and stuff. And then I just started getting into working on my friends like short films and stuff like that. So I did one thing with someone who was an intern at the company Ryan was assigned to as a commercial music video director. I should say I still am signed Dexter at the moment. So let's just get that. But yeah, it was kind of like a string Quartet church him kind of thing that was done to this kind of practical effects little film, my friend and maid. So then. Yeah, it was amazing. I mean, I heard it. That's kind of how I reached out to him because I was just that it was my first week actually moving to earlier. I used from Sunderland in the northeast of England originally and then by London I am got approached by Roman Coppola's company to move over. I was directing a video for Pharrell and two chance actually some music film is buy background at all about backgrounds really. As always, with the researcher actually, he was like putting together the treatment for the job and I heard Ari's music because I loved it really. That was ten years ago now and next thing I knew I was in Ari's apartment and his apartment was tiny it was 50% bed and then he had two timpanis in there and didn't have the Internet and immediately was like this is my guy. You know what I'm saying? I was like anybody who's just shipped two timpanis from Detroit to take a 50% of your apartment I'm down with so anywhere we basically became really good friends and we cooked me up with the studio in north Hollywood. We were making music together for years for film and we make them films together as well and that's how we met Jacob who came into a casting for a job that I was doing and they were the fourth choir who came in. He was acquired director and I basically just, I mean, it doesn't see a guy rocket science. So they have very gorilla tactics. So they booked the choir. Auditions really stress me out. My aunt was like, well, Jacob, can you take the church choir? And I was just like, yeah, I'm not really one of audition and do all that. I don't want to go through that. So she talked really bad about me. So I ended up doing it anyway. Who do you think you are? You think you're hot shit, huh? Fuck you. So I did it. And how many were in the choir? 15, maybe? Yeah, 1215. Maybe it's yeah. And it was the church choir. So these are like the past. There was in the quiet. Cool. These are like normal, everyday working class, they weren't like professional singers. Yeah. And so they booked them. I think they booked them because of the energy and the vibe. They could sing too, but we're like a family church. Everyone was really close. Where's church? In Lamar park, my Crenshaw area. Oh, cool. So they booked the choir and then they went to Ari studio. I didn't go 'cause I was like, I'm not going. Y'all can go. So that Sunday in true Ryan is the kind of person in Ari two if they want to get it done, they're going to get it done. What was Ari's idea? I was just kind of like. Involved that was always idea, which was a pretty divine invention idea. Did you already know in your minds to group or no? Not at all. Not at all. I know this is a long story. I still not sure it is. We didn't know. So they come to the church. And when I get out of church, they have set up a remote studio in the choir room. Now, at this point, they hadn't heard me sing, but I think the people in the choir were like, oh, Jacob is the guy who sings and does all this. We just do what he tells us to do. No, we saw you sing in the church service. Oh, you did. Okay. Afterwards, then I was scared. He tried to run away from us. He literally just was like, yeah, this was at the early stages. And this wasn't even just trying to like be a group or anything. We were just trying to get the job. We were doing the jumping. It just became really clear at a certain point where Jacob was he knew all the parts, you know, he could arrange the whole choir and he was leading everybody. And the job was still a piece of music for a movie for a commercial. So it was like this thing where we ended up getting to really good friends in the process. And we were just sort of like meeting up at either Ari's place or my place out in the desert. And these guys would come out and steer. And we were honestly just making music really feeling our way of how to make songs and there was something where I was thinking on behalf of three of us that when we left these times when we would come together hang out for a few minutes. I mean, these guys stay at my house and it was like all of a sudden I can't Jake was like, this guy's like we're standing his house. Like what's going on? Jacob to this day never really. He never steers out anyway. He's like, he's really proud of it. I don't like saying that because I was having a little bit of money. But he really didn't let us know that at that time. He was like, honestly, it was just coming out. Something internally was like crazy. I just see this out. And we just were making music for fun. And we would stay for like a week, and we would just really slow process, maybe stay for a week, maybe get one or two songs, like little ideas, and we were kind of seeing where we all know this is happening in LA or is this happening? Because I've moved out there to write a film with somebody who came to live with me for so these guys would come in week one. So everybody lives in California now. Yeah. Well, I'm half of I live in LA, but I've spent a lot of time in the UK. I see. Yeah, I see. Yeah. And I live got an opinion crest up in the mountains and just got this out there and then our reason Burbank. And then as we started when we did loyalty, that was the first song we actually really finished was for a Prada commercial there are in I were working on and we did the song basically for the commercial and then the song was just strong and all these people were like hitting us up just like oh you got any more material and we're like yeah and we had fuck all, you know what I mean? How long ago was that? 28? 27. 2017? And that was the first thing that felt like we were like, oh, we have this is a song, you know? And it was strange because we actually wrote the length of a whole song, or was it just 60 seconds? 66. And then when we were at an extra verse, and then we made it a complete set. And then it ended up on radio one in the UK. And we had before there were any other songs. Nothing. What was funny was we wrote the lyrics based on what the little short film was about. Yeah. In a weird way. So it just gave immediate content to write about in this way. Which is very much the style of what we've developed, right? It's like it's like that, but really even we just did taboos almost recent songwriter like that we wrote. We literally wrote that third song we just played there. We wrote that like 8 weeks ago. Oh yeah. 7 weeks ago? But our writing vibe is, it's very cinematic and that we, and I've done some acting in some theater and stuff. We literally in TV and film whatever. But we literally set ourselves in the room of whatever it is. What does it smell like? What does it feel like? And once we get that clear, the songs just like. The thing that's been like, the thing that's been a real cutlass that we've been wrangling with is like, that's been the thing that we've done from gecko. I mean, I met Ari is like a composer. You know, he was composing films when I met him. And it's like this thing where the three of us have had this film thing, but we've kind of been through this process where that just yet a technique for writing lyrics, but what's the point, right? It's kind of like something we've been developing of getting the heart into that from a personal angle is what we've been working on. And in order to do that, you kind of need to trust each other and I think the thing we've learned, the most is like trust is the gatekeeper of the real thing. And you have to know each other for a long time when you three different people from around the world, different stuff. And that's kind of when the magic really started coming in. When it was actually amazing, that rather than just writing film stuff. And it was just us coming as very different people disagreeing on things, you know, like how we live our lives, how we see the world, but we can agree to disagree and also where we kind of come in the center

"Once again that was offering off Gabriel's debut album angels and queens part two. Recorded in one take at arlen studios and Austin Texas. And now here's Rick Rubin with Jacob lusk, Ryan hope, an ariba luian. First of all, why are you guys in Texas? We open for Harry Styles. How was that? And had that come to pass? I don't even know. Now they say that he acts for us to open for him. So he has a lot of different people opening for him. I was told that he asked for us to open for him. Like he was the one who made that happen. I don't know. But it happened. And it was marvelous. He's actually a really nice guy. Yes. Like he's genuine. Yes, he is. I said, oh, this is why all them girls is going crazy. Absolutely. Was that first really big gig? That's what we did. It was 10,000. People outside is a little different. We did an Elton John on the other. But there wasn't like it was different. He found out where EP, I don't even know how he got it, but he found AP and he basically asked us on his Apple music show and this was before labels and everything. This was yeah, we self released it, like we put vinyl out, Ari and I, you know, we release our own records and soundtracks or soundtracks, some kind of evidence out on our level of prayers, because we have a production company called the prayers that we release vinyl flows. Well, it's just to backyard operation, but it's a studio that Ari and I work through to and score and production film production and stuff. And it's also in the paper we work with, you know? It's like a boutique job, but they're putting the vinyl out is very backyard operation. That's just something that digs we love to do, like fuck it pour out. We pull it out vinyl and then Elton John somehow got all of it and he got something he's up with music, sure. And then he just, yeah, he said really nice things. He called the AP the most seminal a pay of the last ten years. Incredible. And he listens to everything. So he knows. All right, I'll tell you, he listens to every everything. It's crazy. And it's got great taste. So it was a big moment for us that really kind of like put it to have that happen, of course. You know, from something we're just released, that was really the three of us just released and our music. It never gets old when someone that you think makes great things like something you do, it never gets old. So it's a great feeling. Yeah, yeah, exactly. It was like, honestly, it was really just, I don't know, you know the whole thing of like out of the blue. Getting on the radio, it seems like everything saw moved away from that. It's more streaming, it's more like social media bullshit. When we signed our record deal, there wasn't one single photograph of the three of us. In the same fucking realm. I think when we signed the deal, I remember the masking for a picture of us and none of none of us had a photograph. We've known each other for years. Livny says, none of us had a picture on our phones or anything. So since the club show to playing with Harry Styles the other night, have you guys done loads of shows or a few shows? Maybe like 30, 40 40? No, not even probably not that many. And where would you have played? Royal Albert Hall? That has a countdown. That was an hour show everyone. See, I see. It was for letters live. Letters lies. How is that one song? It was really cool. Amazing. It was incredible. It wasn't. You know, I know about you guys, tangentially because of Jaime, who does letters live. Now is that so Amy Sullivan and his friend of mine, I think she works with GMA and she was telling me about your book. Yeah. Is that Jamie? Is that who you do the book? Yes, canon gate is the publisher who's publishing the book in the UK. Yeah, yeah. And I was in London doing book related stuff. Right. And Jamie set up this lunch at a place called cocos, which is a club. And I believe it was the person from cocos, who said, you might want to check out this. I think you might like this. Was it Nick? Sorry, shut up. And that was just maybe three weeks ago. Three weeks ago, I feel like you might like this. That's my guy. I'm driving in the car, and I put it on. And he recommended what to start with, and it comes on. I'm thinking like, I think it's a mistake, because it sounds like this maybe this is an old record. You know, this is something that came out in the 60s or 70s. This is an old record. And then I look and I look at the date 2021. It's like, is it a sample? It's like, that's already playing the drums. Are we playing the case? I couldn't figure out what it was, but it also, it didn't sound retro. It just sounded like it was from another time. Yes. It didn't sound like it was trying to sound like another time. It just sounded like what is this? And then it's like, I couldn't figure out what it was. That was the beginning of the experience. And then I sent that to my friend Justin, who yeah, we met here, yeah. Who does the podcast? I just said, what's up with these guys? And he's like, believe it or not, they're going to be in Texas when you're going to be there. It's like, okay, get the fuck out. Meant to be. So I was trying to figure out, like, does he live here? Honestly, because, you know, like, yeah, you're a huge huge inspiration for particularly for Ari and I, you know, producers. It's kind of like this thing where we were like, well, we're doing this right now, but to hear Howard came around, he's just crazy. I put it on just like I want to know more. And I didn't even know. Is it a group? Yeah. I thought Gabriel's maybe it's like brothers and sisters. Yeah. You know, maybe it's a family. I have no idea. I love that. I know, that's family. I had no idea also because it was harmony. It's like, maybe it's like a family that sings together. Amazing. That's why it sounds so. No, no, no, that's why it sounds like because it's your voice. But you know how when brothers and sisters sing together? It's like there's a blend that doesn't happen when it's just random people. Yeah. Yeah. And I'm a little weird. I've done a lot of studio sessions, so I like trying to tweak my voice sometimes and I do the harmonies and stuff. It's great, weird, but it's great. Wow. That's a crazy story. Yeah. Wild. We'd love to play some songs for you. Yeah, play some sort of let's play some songs.

"The globe to get lost in a new vibe and tap into surprising ideas. From tiny suspension bridges and the mountains of Nepal to journalists who've taken the city buses to deliver the news in Caracas. Let's tap into what the world is thinking. On far flung. Check out far flung wherever you listen. Today we're featuring one of the most thrilling new groups in contemporary soul music, Gabriel. And lucky for us, they performed three songs, one of which is still unreleased, live for broken record. The recordings were done in Austin a few months ago while they were there opening for Harry Styles and plain Austin city limits. Gabriel's consists of three very distinct pillars of talent. Lead singer Jacob lusk, who was raised in Compton singing in gospel and went to high school with Kendrick Lamar. Keyboardist and producer Ryan hope, who grew up a lover of dance music in his native UK, and Los Angeles native Ari balushi, who serves as Gabriel's in-house composer and violinist. Gabriel's origin story is as unconventional as their diverse musical backgrounds. In 2016, Ryan hope in our elysian were hired to direct and score a commercial with the gospel choir. After hearing the choir director Jacob lusk Singh, a light went off for the both of them. Over the course of the next couple of years, the trio started to record and release songs independently until 2021 when their music caught fire online. Sir Elton John himself said their debut EP was one of the most seminal records he's heard in the last ten years. On today's episode, Rick Rubin sits down with Gabriel's to hear how they were able to create a work in environment that allowed space for vulnerability and musical exploration. And Jacob blask tells a harrowing story about getting lost in the LA county jail system in an effort to clear his name so he could appear in the finale of American Idol.

We Can No Longer Be 'Conservatives' in the Old Sense
"We are no longer conservatives. We are restorationists. This is the title of an article. I want to give credit. It's written by a fellow named John Gabriel, jail and John Gabriel, and published in ricochet, ricochet dot com, and it's a very short article, just a really a few paragraphs. But it kind of got me thinking, so I wanted to read from the article and comment on it. But John Gabriel begins by saying, essentially, who is a conservative? Quote conservatives of long struggle to define conservatism. Maybe it's a philosophy, maybe it's an attitude or a psychology. And then he quotes Lincoln. Lincoln was once asked about conservatism and Lincoln says somewhat Riley or whimsically, is it not adherence to the old and tried against the new and untried. So Lincoln here is making an argument that look if you've got a long body of empirical experience that shows that this custom this way of organizing society, this rule of thumb works well, why wouldn't you go with that over something where you have no idea if it's going to work? Why would you try something novel via novelty may seem appealing on the surface, but there's a good chance that that new approach will fail. And so what Lincoln is doing really is making the case for tradition.

"gabriel" Discussed on Entrepreneur on FIRE
"Whoever it is, what's going to stop them from just getting into this business and squashing you. And ultimately, the answer is, it's about you, and it's about the team. And it's about why you're going to be the frugal enough and passionate enough and efficient enough with the capital you have and go and go get that land grab in a way that another company is not going to be able to do. Again, investors are investing in you more than they're investing in anything else. So being able to tell that story and being able to explain why you're the one that's going to take this huge opportunity and go get that market share. Fire nation, you've heard land grab a few times. You have to have that first mover's advantage is critical. And once you have it, you can't let it go. You got a Gabriel, and you're wrong with it. You're currently running with it. As you said, you're a little nasty because you're traveling around. You've got twin 18 month old, you're married. You just have a lot of stuff going on right now. So let's talk post fundraise because you've raised the money, you're paying yourself a salary, albeit a non glorious one, but you are getting revenue from this overall venture capital injection. What happens post fundraise that we really need to know about? Well, I think one keeping keeping contact with your investors is really important. Like I send out a quarterly update to my investors. If your investors are coming and asking you for information that's probably not a good sign. So it's better to keep them in the loop. But two, you need to immediately be thinking about when your next fundraise is. I know this is a terrible thing and no one wants to think about it because fundraising is so hard. It was kind of like when a politician gets elected and they're thinking about the next election. I hate that. Yeah..
"gabriel" Discussed on Bedtime Stories For Kids
"Adrian and Micah are at home, listening to their favorite story from bedtime stories for kids. It's already evening time when the doorbell rings, and Gabriel works the front door. Opens it, but there's nobody there. Gabriel goes back up to his bedroom, continues with the story. When the doorbell rings again. This time, however, Gabriel and Adrian go to the door together. And when they open the door, again, there is nobody there. And just as they arrive back upstairs, the story continues, the door bell rings for the third time. And this time Gabriel Adrian and Micah, all three of them run downstairs to try and catch who is at the front door. Gabriel opens the front door, and again, while there is nobody there, there is a package left on the floor, and on the package there is a cart that reads open me. It's a super, super heavy package. So Gabriel, Adrian and Mike I have to work together as a team to get the package inside and into the living room. The package is wrapped very tightly. Gabriel Adrian and Micah each have to pull on one side of the wrapping to try and see what is inside. And a few seconds later, the three boys stare at a box and inside is the following. A huge and super heavy camera that can take amazing pictures in the dark. Plus, a tripod on which the camera can stand. And the second thing that's in the box is a ginormous bag of the most amazing delicious super amazing chocolate ever. But then there's a third thing, and that is a letter. Should we open the letter and find out what it says? The letter says this dear Gabriel Adrian and Micah. Someone told me that dragons are not real. But what if I told you they are the real deal? To spot a dragon. This is all it takes. Spread out all of these chocolate and put the camera in its place. Bring a little bit of patience and you will see a dragon face to face. Gabriel runs to his mom Kimberly and says, mom, where do we put the chocolate and the camera? How about in the garden mom says? Because I don't want to drag an inside a house. And that night, the entire garden became filled with chocolate. Covering all the grass where some of the best, most amazing and most awesome chocolates are just covering everything. Adrienne and Micah carried a camera upstairs because from the bedroom, you have the best view over the entire garden. And now we wait, Adrian says. Let's see if we can really spot a dragon. And so one minute goes by and 5 minutes go by and ten minutes go by and all this time absolutely nothing. 15 minutes go by and 20 minutes go by and nothing. Okay, this doesn't work Adrian says, let's go to sleep and then we can clean up the chocolate covered garden. Tomorrow. And Gabriel, Adrian and Mike con. They leave the room and they walk towards their bedrooms. When suddenly huge noise comes from the outside. It's like there is something flying in the sky and it's like about to land, but it's not an airplane, but it makes a lot of noise. And the boys run back into the room, looking to see what is causing all of this noise. But as it's nighttime, it's a little bit hard to spot. When suddenly, no, no, they can not be. A real life dragon runs through the garden. The dragon must be as big as the entire house and its green and black and there's yellow colors. And the dragon sure loves chocolate because the dragon starts eating and eating and eating and eating and eating and eating and eating all the chocolate. Quick. Like I whispered to Gabriel, take the picture. And in that moment, Adrian presses the button of the camera, getting the perfect picture of the dragon. When at that moment, all of the chocolate from the garden is gone in the dragon flies off back into the sky. Wow, this was awesome. Tomorrow, we can show everyone the dragon that came to our backyard. And with that, we're going to end today's episode. Please share it with all your Friends and your family. I hope you have fun. Join me in the next adventure. And if you want me to create a story just for you, then simply ask any grown-up to get in touch. So with that being said, I wish you good night. I wish you sweet dreams if you are not yet going to sleep. I wish you an amazing day, and I will see you in the next adventure..

We are just trying to breathe on butte up his trunk eleven. We've got enforced. Eleven for now. We'll get that mentality winning spirit. Yes even if it'll get complete eleven won't get some specific players. The indictment that mentality of winning and delivering week in week. What is players booker. Asaka emerick obama young defensive Dennis the bios to an extent smith wrote to an extent. Then martin oughta god. We're going to join us in recent time now. I was expecting to see the couple players. Why because within the winning spirit michael butte. If forced eleven around them now seen doubts on state all of them.

He pleaded out he fought it out. He gives best unenriched sometimes even when they started the bench in recent games. It doesn't mean giving his best just To an extent not too much encouragement from the team. Not winning your time so if you blame up from that i must commend the effort of willian. Yes we'll have.
