"Thank you, Jason. Seriously. Sam. Tell us what's making you happy. It still making me happy about a month in, but it has been just about a month since Beyoncé's album renaissance has been released. And I can't stop playing it. I can't stop playing it. And neither can anybody else. There's this wonderful video that Kevin Bacon. Yes, do you have bacon posted on social platforms a few days ago? He's performing an acoustic rendition of Beyoncé's heated from the new album. With his baby goats all around him. I got a fair for my girl. And it's amazing. And you realize watching Kevin Bacon pay homage to Beyoncé that this album has truly penetrated the zeitgeist. And it is a testament to Beyoncé's wisdom and power, some 20 years into her career that she still has this chokehold on us. I'm obsessed. Beyoncé, I love you. It is your year, your renaissance. Yes. I almost made that my happy, but I was like, yeah, you know what? That's so obvious. But I didn't think I could. I would have done it. We can definitely still dancing to it all the time and thinking about how amazing it is. Yeah. Well, I am never going to turn down an opportunity to talk about Beyoncé. So, Sam, that was Beyoncé, renaissance, making all of us happy still, of course. What's making me happy this week? Well, it's actually something that I saw months ago at Sundance, and it's finally come out. It was one of the movies that really stuck with me when I saw it there. And it's Emily the criminal, which stars the wonderful, amazing, weird, great Aubrey Plaza. And it's this very taut thriller slash action movie where she's playing this woman who's true to my soul, tens of thousands of dollars in debt, student debt, and she is struggling to find a well paying job because of a past criminal conviction. And so she finds herself connected to this credit card fraud ring, and then everything goes wrong. I just think it's really sharp. It's got all of the political current commentary going on here. She's giving this fantastic performance of a person who is both in over their head, but it's just so desperate, and it is trying to do what she can to just survive. And it's just really fun and thoughtful and it also has some great performances from Gina gershon and Theo Rossi. I highly recommend it. It's playing in theaters now, but if you're still a little iffy on going to the theaters or it doesn't have any plan near you, just note it for next time for later when it reaches VOD because I definitely think it's really, really fun. Also, it is 90 minutes and I love a 90 minute movie. Same year. Yes. So that is Emily the criminal, and that is what's making me happy this week.

Lance Miller Reflects Back on His Songwriting Career
"You also have, you know, again, we're talking about among rob and we're just, you know, from the side of life, you know, we're happy to be in behind the camera. Most times, but you know, you've been out there in front of Nashville star TV show. I mean, I was, I mean, looking at myself here this morning, I look like I have a face for radio, but I will be calling. You better watch out. But I was, I was on Nashville star, Miranda Lambert, the fans of people out there listing my remember Miranda was on that show the first season and she got set third place, I think, and then I was on the second season and got fourth place. And it's interesting you bring that up because my first publishing deal after singing demos, what your demonstration recordings and I would sing for songwriters. And that's how I got to know a lot of the songwriting community by singing demos and from that I got a deal at EMI publishing. And then that deal ended after two or three years and then I was kind of flopping around in Nashville again trying to figure out what to do next and then Nashville star came down the pike. And I got on that show and there's a long story to that but the short version of it is everybody most people that I met are still in my life now from that show in a very important capacity. The Warren brothers were judges on that show. Right. That season. They told me in front of 800,000 people to watch that show that I sounded like Merle Haggard, but I look like chastity Bono. And we were instant friends 'cause I could tell a joke. Everybody's like, well, I kind of see it out there. Let me squeeze this. Oh yeah, these are. They look, hey. Chastity. There she is. You were just ahead of your time, brother. I had my time, I think, yeah. So anyway, I met Tracy gershon on that show. She was a judge as well. And she went to Warner Brothers records shortly after that show, and she told me she said, when I get over there, you're going to be the first act I signed. And she did.

"President of NFT now, which is the premier source of NFT content and analysis. And look, I've been following their podcast. They've got some good stuff. As far as I know, they're one of the few kind of NFT focused media companies and I wanted to have him come on this podcast to talk about the space and kind of what he's seeing and also what's working from a growth perspective. So Alejandro, how's it going? Eric, thank you for having me. Pleasure to be here in super excited to dive in. Yeah, pleasure to have you, man. So yeah, before we start, I mean, I guess we're starting. But tell us about your story a little bit and how it's led up to where you are now. Oh man, it's an interesting question. I think my stories, it's both an anomaly and an enigma and I think I love that because I spent a lot of my 20s in the process of exploration and discovery. So so many people are just so gung Ho about really focused on one area or one something that they're really passionate about it. For me, it was really more about exploring my different passions and seeing where those things would lead us. But somehow my constant element has always been the intersection of storytelling and emerging tech. And so I've always found myself in the media world or storytelling world or in the people centric world, right? And so I've been in digital media for about 13 years. I helped build and sell a leap day lead four $50 million back in 2015, then I was the youngest member of the content strategy and acquisitions team at Verizon and had some great successes in my history, but also some really great failures. A lot of learning experiences, you know, I launched two companies with the cofounder that we didn't agree eye to eye. That was a lot of deep learning experiences on that front. Launched the ocean nonprofit organization that's still very much very alive. And I've been in the crypto space since 2014 where I've bought my first Bitcoin. I've been in Ethereum from, I think, 2016 when Jesse gershon introduced me to it with my friend Amanda Gorman, 19 census, I got in at $7. We helped Amanda and Jesse stand up a lot of those spokes in terms of a branding and storytelling perspective from ethereal to the enterprise alliance and a few other companies that they were launching at the time. So to an incredible journey, I've been doing a few things in aerospace, AI, to entrepreneur, and then in 2020, I found myself burning out at the beginning of 2020 pre COVID..

"Yeah. Yeah. Well, it shows you, even though the mathematical rationality just the human nature just comes to my own spot could probably go through this completely thinking was all about logic and that's the world that we live in, unfortunately in the world of poker. Obviously, you will, like you just said, every year now probably circled that event to the shootout event as it didn't realize that it really fits your style almost perfectly. Will it change anything with regards to playing as well? I know you're very busy. I know it's tough for you to get out, but being that you're just very close to the hard rock where you play more events there at the harder, because they have a lot of events. Throughout the year. You know, I'll do it with a reason to see bedliner. I actually never met in person because of COVID until a few weeks ago. He said he's going to be there playing an event next week, so I may play that event because he's playing it. But no, I just, I don't have it's funny. So I went out there a second so when I won the bracelet, it was I was supposed to go back fly back Wednesday morning to Nashville where our company has an office. And I have a full day of meetings on Thursday. And, you know, when I made the final table, obviously I couldn't fly back in the morning. I bought my wife, you know, 100 shares bringing the file table. I've been on the table. I've changed the flight to a red eye and make it back something back in time, but before you do it, it was 1130 at night, and this the red eye, I had no flight home, no hotel room. And a full day of meetings starting at 5 a.m. local time. So I had to launch a cry for me. I had to, I got a hotel room. I kind of like celebrate by myself, just.

"And how I replays and how I'd have to get aggressive with him, three bedroom a couple times early on, which is what I ended up doing. But yeah, I think there were definitely players of that table. For most people, was probably their first final table. Right. That was of course a really big four. So, you know, you know, the jump where everyone, you mentioned one of the money, after you won the first day, you know, it was 1500 hour entry fee. I think the money was 5000. So everyone who lost that second day is 5000. You get to the final table. And I think the 9th play would have placed payout was 15,000 and it went up from there. And the pay jump started to get pretty pretty big. You know, I once was in 4007 was a 116 third was like 75. So the pay jumps were significant, certificate people, and they played that way. And if you care about gay jobs and maximizing your ICM, you're supposed to do that. But again, there might not ever like that. I know I already wasn't playing that way. I wasn't playing that way and there were probably a couple others, but there's certainly where people and I think that was an advantage to if you weren't playing that way. You could exploit those who cared more about pay jobs. Wanda come back, I had written this down when you said, so I want to come back. You had said that it took a while for some of the players to realize when they're playing the first table. Like you said, the first table you said that you felt like you were the best player. The second table, you felt like overhead. I mean, obviously it's a little different in the second table. First table is complete luck who you get. I mean, it could be that you're with 5 bracelet winners. But if you have a good draw, then the second one will all ten of them won..

"Of all of the winners, so there will be 80 winners, right? 800 people 80 winners, those 80 winners now move on to the second round and they are now in the money. They now are in the money. So you have 80 players. Now those 80 players come together for 8 handed tables. There's ten of those. Same thing. Winner take all, that winner will now take on to the final table. And there'll be ten people at that final table. Everyone starts out with the same number of chips because they all play the same number. There have been times where some of the chips are just slightly off because one had a 9 person table one had a ten person table, et cetera. So it doesn't always work out that's 800 if there was 790 ten tables wouldn't have that extra person if you can people can understand. So then there's ten players, you all come back and play it out and at the final table it's a little different because there are some there's actually some ICM consideration now in some respects because you have tenth through first having cash, where it normally in the first two rounds of the shootout it doesn't matter, you came in second, or you came at 9th. You got zero. Either zero or no additional improvement if you were in the second round. So just want to explain that to everyone because I found a 100% sure that everyone knows about this. I played in this event a few times. Is this kind of hasn't worked out? I usually am there a couple times. I go for like ten days or 12 days and then come home and et cetera, et cetera. It just doesn't work out that it's always in my schedule. It's not definitely one that I circle. I will say that. But it's very sitting going, but the one person described this. They said it's one of the don't take this the wrong way. Easiest ways to make the final table. Because you got to win two one tables. And you're now the final table. And when I thought of it that way, it was funny I wasn't playing it the first time. This was like ten years ago. And we called me on the phone and he goes, why are you not down here? And I said, what are the odds of me winning two, three, one table? Come on. Even when that's just too much, he goes, you understand you win just two of them and you're at a final table. And at the time I had not made a final table yet. And I went literally it was one of those where he was a hello. Hello, and I was standing next to him buying in. You know, that kind of thing. So talk a little bit about what I loved for my listeners to understand is some strategies that you would tell them with regards to playing a shootout because it is very, very different than just playing a normal tournament. It's very different. So what would be kind of your strategies that you would give my listeners on playing a shootout a couple strategies?.

"Welcome back to the Bernard Lee poker show. We are talking with the 2021 $1500 WSOP shoot out bracelet winner, we're fortunate to see him holding up the bracelet if you're watching on YouTube. Gershon, do it one more time. So everyone sees the lovely piece of jewelry. I love the logic. You had said last the last part of our interview that you want to wear it. No one else wears it. I'll tell you between you and me, I'm with you. I spent a lot of time trying to win this thing. I got it. And you know what? I'm gonna wear it. Maybe not all the time, but I'm gonna wear it a lot, especially when I'm playing poker. And you know what, if someone makes fun of me, so what? You know, it was funny. It's funny. I was at a kind of hybrid work social event recently. I was a couple of my colleagues, very senior people. And there was also happened to be a World Series of poker final tables from way back when there was go about to say Steve Bagley? Yeah, of course. Yeah. So they were making fun of me. I had it on. Let me show you. He's going to wear the bracelet forever. You know, it's funny. It's this. And Steve goes to them. Do you understand how hard it is to win one of those? Hey. I won one. There you go. Also never leave my wrists. Right. There you go. Phil Gordon used to say this. There are two types of poker players in the world. One's with? And one's without. And there are a lot more without. So until you're in that, if you were a bracelet winner, I would say, if a bracelet winner came up to you and said something like that, okay, take it for what it's worth. Hey, listen, I don't wear mine ever. You should wear yours. Okay, that's fine. But if you're one without, you have nothing to say until you jump over into that other category. When you jump over the other category, you have the right to say whatever you want. But until that time, it's jealousy. That's all it is. It's just jealousy. Trust me. Trust me, I'm as jealous. Even though I'm on a YouTube, if you're watching on YouTube on screen, where I am trying to touch them. I'm trying to steal it right now. That's what I'm trying to do. I just want to grab it. You know, so obviously it is a phenomenal phenomenal achievement. And like you said, you know, put those numbers into perspective, you don't have the time to go out for 8 weeks, 7 weeks, like a lot of these people who literally park and Airbnb the whole deal. You're going out for just a few events. And on top of that, you played in an event with probably one of the smallest fields in a no limit holdom event. Usually no limit holding is minimum 17 1800 if not three to 4000. Jeremy Osman won the turbo COVID charity. That was a very fortunate one. It was kind of one of those weird scenarios whereas if you a few hundred. But you had only 800 people. Let's describe the shootout scenario for some people, because some people don't know what this is. Is that there are 800 people that start out and then they're all ten handed. So it is a ten handed basically sit and go. It goes top three get prizes, but this one is winner take all..

"But it would just meant to say that it was that it was testing for the virus. Yeah, yeah. So it was nerve racking, but they created a bubble. Between the 9 of us or in the silicon eliminating and the event staff and the ESPN crew and et cetera like 40 or 50 people that were all in this like bubble in that background you are right now. It was eerie actually. They set it up in not where it usually is in kind of the center of center right when you walk in. It was only in the corner and the rest of the room was empty. Just so look did not look like the normal World Series of poker. But it was interesting experience. But yes, to answer your question, I was definitely paranoid over getting COVID. I mean, I understood, you know, wasn't exactly that's life, right? You mentioned, you get the one out or sometimes, let us all get COVID or not at that time was and probably still. Not due to any fault of your own. It just happens to be the luck of the luck of the draw and we were all terrifying. Right, right, right, right. It must have been, like you said, what a weird scenario. It's in the corner. There's no tables, the echo must have been going through the whole place and the Rio isn't the same. You know, obviously during the World Series there's hustle and bustle. Even this year, this past year in 2021 where the tendons was a little down. Still, this hustle and bustle going to the bathroom. They're still lying, et cetera. I mean, it was really quiet. The walk from the hotel to the right areas is a decent wall, 7 8 minute walk. Right. It was empty. It was deserved. It was yeah. It was, it was surreal. If anyone had been to the Las Vegas on off times and just couldn't to the Rio and a couple times, I just walked down there just to see what it's normally like..

"I really wanted to that's why I played tournaments, by the way. Cash really doesn't interest me. Right. I want to win something. I think tangible to say, I won this event. That's what tournaments torn speak to me. That's where I'll focus my energy's going forward. Again, probably the very limited way I haven't played. I did one charity tournament, but essentially have not done play poker since Booker and probably won't play again until the next summer in Vegas also is over. I mean, the online scenario definitely helps you because obviously you don't have as much time. So it's a very finite period of time, especially the online braces were pretty much 24 hours. With regards to the online live hybrid from last year, you would say you haven't played many terms had you not played many even online terms leading up to that? Yeah, I brought that is probably the most I played in any series or I go to Vegas, I play three or four. I think I played 7 or 8, and cashed in two before that for that.

This gentleman's name may ring a bell to some people because in the unusual 2020 WSOP main event online live hybrid U.S. bracket this gentleman made the final table of there. He finished 8th there winning over a 125 million $25,000 would have been great for the charity if he was a 125 million, but he donated that all to the charity as well. Welcome to the show. Garrett distant gerson, thanks for joining us here on the bernardi poker show. Thanks for having me. Pleasure to be here. It is really a great story. A lot of people have followed it. I followed it all ever since you were at that fight on table with Joe aber, who has been a former guest of our show. And really, you know, it was kind of for you this all or nothing you are heavily entrenched in the financial world and as you have said in other interviews, you are very well taken care of in that scenario. So your goal is to help other charities. And it was really kind of when or nothing. In some respects, it was really trying to win as much money for these charities, which I think is fantastic. But before we get to all of that, what I love to understand from you is, how did you get started in the world of poker? There are a lot of people in the world of finance who have kind of moved over what former guest Andy frankenberger is one of those people who have kind of moved over to that world, but I'd love to hear how you got interested in the world of poker..

"Apartment building and it's the rice military neighborhood so it's very high end. Very fancy. And then as you're driving by it, you notice this little tiny 1938 mid century bungalow. And it's shiny, it looks like a sparkly New Year's Eve dress in the sun. And it's completely covered in what looks like aluminum, and what looks like Christmas tree tinsel? But when you look closer, it's actually beer cans is what you're seeing. The entire house is covered in beer cans. And it sounds like there's even you said tinsel. Does that mean beer cans have been like cut into ribbons? Yes, actually, there are parts of the house where beer cans have been cut into little ribbons and they make wind chimes and those are like on little mounds of concrete that are surrounding the house as well. So there are a bunch of different sort of little sculptures around the house as well. Also, that come from different parts of beer cans. I'm finding that the name of this house is actually quite accurate. Yes. Okay, so the beer can house is covered in beer cans, but they give tours. You can go inside of it. What is that like? Yeah, so the inside of the house is actually surprisingly pretty normal and it looks like you stepped into the 1940s. Here, let's look in here and I'll show you some of the stuff inside the house. That's Pete gershon. He showed me around the beer can house and gave me a tour of the place. We've kept the inside pretty much intact. It looks much the same as when the milkovich family lived here. The original color scheme, you know, this hasn't changed. So Pete actually wrote a book about the beer can house and visionary art in Houston. So he knows a lot about the place and he knows a lot about John milkovich, who's the guy that made it. He just liked to drink beer. It was a fun. He liked it. He had a huge beer belly to match. I think it's quite obvious. And he saved all these cans. He grew up during the depression, right? And learned to never throw anything away. So he was hoarding these flattened cans and the attic here, and in the attic of his mom's house, saving him up in bundled stacks, knowing someday he was going to use them for something. What kind of beer are we talking about here? Yeah, there are actually a lot of different types of beer around the house. Some of them don't exist anymore, but there's Texas pride, cores. I think I saw a Bud Light. There's one called Stella, something. I don't know beer very well. Still or twice, I think, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. And there's pretty broad range. As a matter of fact, the ones you see at here that are a little bit yellow. And say 96 on them, this is apparently some kind of low Cal, beer that his wife Mary liked to drink. So this is if he saw this in 1982, you would have seen a eye popping patchwork of reds and blues and greens and like every color, but you can see the sun will just zap all the reds out really all that's left is yellows, some blues, you know, a little bit of this kind of gold color. But like he really, this whole house is the entirely covered in beer. A quick question. Do you know how many beer cans there are on the house? Like, a rough estimate? I believe there are 50,000. Yeah, yeah. Okay, so this is actually kind of a monumental project. How did he actually go about covering the house? Did he start with the roof? Did he start with the walls? How did it work? Yeah, well he was able to show me a lot of the original tools that John use. And so I got to see firsthand of the process behind it. He would fashion a two by four foot panel out of several cans. He would tape these things together, but he would also with a punch, which I believe is this strange tool with a teeth on the end of it. I think he used that to kind of stab holes into it that he could then wire or rivet these things together and then apply to the house. There's a moisture barrier behind all the can panels. So there was at least that amount of forethought to it. The whole thing sort of took a lot of trial and error. Then it took about 20 years for him to complete the whole entire house. This is kind of like this was sort of like part of his life's work. Yeah, yeah, exactly. After he retired, he just went ahead and did this whole thing and it was his whole project. He drank a 6 pack of beer every day. I initially I didn't even think that he knew why he did it and he knew why he sort of covered his house in beer cans. There's a quote in his house. It says sometimes I lie awake at night, trying to figure out why I do it. I like this kind of outsider or visionary art. Where it is really just responding to an innate human desire to change your environment to make it special, make it yours, make it unique. I vibe with that so deeply. And I think it's like a lot of people in that world. They don't think of them. They're certainly don't think of themselves as fine artists. And even just as sort of just like, I just do it because it's the thing that seems like what I should do. I just want to do it. Yeah, yeah, exactly. And I think you can see that in a lot of the different art that he has in and around his house, there are a bunch of strange signs in the House as well that he made out of beer cans. He made the this used to be out on the curb these planter boxes that he would put these sayings on don't necessarily mean anything. Yes, we kit. You know, what does that mean? It doesn't mean anything. He just wanted people to be confused and think it meant something and driving themselves crazy, trying to figure it out. How did his wife feel about this? How did his family feel about it? Yeah, I don't think his wife was a fan for what I've been told. That's a big. That's a fairly large marital issue you got on your hands there. Yeah. Yeah. No, something that was so funny that Pete told me was that the way that John built a house, it was like he did it row by row, and he put these flattened beer cans around the house very slowly, almost so that his wife Mary did not notice it happening as it was happening. But eventually the old frog in the pot trick until suddenly you're like, wait, my whole house is covered in beer can. Something's happened. Yeah, exactly. I imagine she caught on at some point. Yeah, yeah. And that's actually the reason why the whole interior of the house is so normal because she wanted a space for herself. This is classic marital work here. This is your zone. This is my zone. Never shall the Twain read. Okay, yeah. Does it make sense? Yes. And what about like, what about his neighbors? Like he had we lived in like a normal street. The house is like not way out in the boonies or something. How did his neighbors feel about it? Yeah. I mean, I don't think his neighbors can complain now because it's a landmark, but I imagine, you know, the beer cans just singing in the wind on windy days and making those sort of wind chime sounds that they do get pretty noisy and Pete was able to recreate that sound for me. It wasn't a super windy day, but. It was very loud. So I imagine they were not very happy. I love that it's not just I love that it's also acoustically aggressive. It's like it's like, yeah, out first off, the house is covered in beer again. Second off, you can hear the beer cans when you're inside your own home. That's a real power move..

"Last summer we brought you. The story of one court case posed a determine the future of half the land in Oklahoma and the treaty rights of five tribes, since then so much has happened. Let me fill you in. In two thousand eighteen, the Supreme Court heard the case of Patrick Murphy a man sentenced to death by the state of Oklahoma for murder Murphy claimed Oklahoma didn't have jurisdiction to prosecute him. Because the crime occurred on the reservation of his tribe Muskogee Creek nation. Oklahoma claim that reservation no longer existed last June. The Supreme Court was scheduled to issue its decision, but then it didn't happen at the end of the term as you know, and your listeners know. The the court ended up not deciding it and kicking it over for argument. This is Ian Gershon Gorn. Patrick Murphy's lawyer and then in a very unusual. Situation having kicked it over for re argument. The court didn't schedule it for rearmament in schedule it in October didn't schedule it in November but in December. The court made a shocking announcement. The US Supreme Court is scheduled to here in Oklahoma man's appeal today after he said his case should not have been tried in state court, they decided to hear a totally different case in Nineteen ninety-seven Jim. See mcgirt was convicted in central for the rest of his life for raping his wife's forty year old granddaughter. The rape mcgirt committed happened within the boundaries of Creek nations historic territory. is also a tribal citizen of Seminal Nation of. His alleged crime and Patrick Murphy's are both agree justice, but states don't have jurisdiction over crimes committed by Indians Indian land, only tribes and the federal government do. Mr mcgirt, having learned of the Murphy case in the Tenth Circuit in the victory there with the help of fellow inmates, so-called Jailhouse Lawyers filed a Pro Se handwritten petition in the Oklahoma State Court, he lost in the State Court, and then he filed a handwritten pro se Sur petition in the Supreme Court. On December Thirteenth Twenty nineteen the supreme. Court announced that they would hear his case, so he didn't have a lawyer up until and through his Supreme Court. Petition, that lawyer became Ian Gershon Gorn, but if the Supreme Court was already deciding this issue with Murphy, why would they choose to hear a second and basically identical case if you remember and Murphy Justice Gorsuch recused himself because he had dealt with the case in the lower court so the supreme. Supreme. Court was down to just eight justices, an even number that seems to have left them with a tie vote. What the court was doing was looking for another case that presented the same legal issue, but would do so in a context in which justice gorsuch was not recused, which brings the total number of justices back up to nine, so the case that would ultimately decide native land and treaty rights, and our state became mcgirt the Oklahoma. I this morning case, eighteen, ninety, five, twenty, six mcgirt versus Oklahoma. This is chief. Justice Roberts, speaking on a conference call like all our lives. The Supreme Court's term was disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. The transition to at home hearings came with a few awkward moments. Thank you council Justice Gorsuch. But it also made history for the first time ever. The public could listen live. That Monday morning I was sitting at my desk with C.. Span Open on my computer. It felt like everyone in Indian country was tuned an angel LS Creek citizen and reporter for Muskogee media. The Tribes Newspaper was listening from her home and Ocmulgee. County. I was watching it online and I had my headphones on, and I'm staring at my computer screen. Occasionally I start talking to my computer screen and my kids look at me. Like what was mom gone crazy or she? Just you know kind of having a rant. It was kind of strange to be watching. people talk about your tribe and and components of their history and. Maybe, they do or maybe they don't always understand. It was really surreal. Experience I felt like I was experiencing history and my dining room table.
Paris Hilton: Ending Engagement Was the Best Decision
"Hilton opened up about ending her engagement to Chris. Zylka an interview with Cosmo UK. Did you like Chris. He looks much okay. She says it was the best decision of her life and that it just didn't feel right. I've worked way too hard to just give my life to someone they may have to be perfect So somebody what are little hung up on that last line there. They have to be perfect. You think she setting yourself up for disaster to say that this person has to be perfection. I mean not perfection but perfect for her like she has a certain set of standards and I think we all do and sometimes you want people to meet you at like at hopefully the the halfway point with all of those requirements that you need your life for sure. I don't know if she meant that he had to be like the perfect human being but I think for her when you look at her life. It's kind of like a tricky situation because you want somebody who's like a boss but not too much of a boss to where they don't have time to spend time with you and you also have somebody who's flexible enough. Who can I get up in? Travel the world with you as you know she. Dj's all around the world throughout the year. But you also want somebody without a job. So it's it's like it's literally like us to do coupons to figure out what the Perez Hilton is like. You know her. Life is not like a normal folk like it's hard to relate to what she needs in her life because as you say like she's got all the money in the world he's got a very successful. Gershon so many jobs. She works very hard But she also likes to party still have fun. Yeah the time and it sounds like she needs a man who can trust her because she does live this really exciting life and they can trust because she's talked about having bad trust exactly and you don't want someone who is constantly thinking that you're going to be doing the worst and then you just they project it on you and then you start living like you're in a cage and I feel like maybe she at one point felt like she was in that situation. I I don't know but if she's going somewhere her man is going with her. She is one of those girls who likes Herman with there all the time. She kind of likes codependent relationship. But I think for her. It's one of those things where when your sister having kids and getting married and your other brothers having a kid and getting married and you've done all these things together you kinda. Sorta see a glimpse into that life and you start to take your life around that and all of a sudden you get too deep into the rabbit hole and you're buying the baby and then you're like no. I WANNA party a little bit more. I want to go out and want to have this free and loving life and sometimes you get your man roped into it and then when he starts going on now you like wait. I got about four more good summers left. I need to do this like a little longer. It's just reading the temperature and knowing exactly what she wants at that moment but I also think they shouldn't have to choose your forever
Coming Out Stories
"From stand up. Comedian Kate. McCabe I was gobsmacked smarts when she told me who she chose to I come out to. I think it's interesting sometimes as a lesbian or gay person or somebody who identifies somewhere else on the sexuality spectrum. You might ask the question of. When did you know you were gay? But that's different than like. When did you feel different? Or when you felt attraction to the same sex I remember feeling like perhaps like a non sexualize way drawn to women very early on when I was like in second grade or something having having little tiny crushes on female teachers. Okay but then I think feeling probably different than other girls more around like like when I was like twelve thirteen fourteen when you actually are starting to go through puberty and you see girls gravitating towards boys trying to get their attention and flirty with them. You know when when my female friends were picking their favourite members of new kids on the block and I was scrambling to make up some random attraction to one of them to Nisa old sites. Tell us where you were growing up. Then okay I grew up in Erie. Pennsylvania which is On the Great Lakes Aches in America. Wonderful thought a great place to grow up being bit I wouldn't call Erie. Pennsylvania like a hyper progressive city. I would describe it as very Americana Traditionally more of like a blue collar type background although there were lots of white collar workers there as well you know. Detroit has the reputation of sort of like a factory city. That is maybe like a little run down. He's got a little bit of that spirit as well. They're both Great Lakes cities and it's that sort of have like a slightly depressed although there's efforts now for rebirth wall SORTA messages. Were you getting about the fact that you know you knew that you were a lesbian or you need a different. The messages were getting in the playground. or or in the place where you live. Oh deep dark ones. I grew up Catholic and I went to Catholic school so especially in the eighties nineties. You know there wasn't much progressivism in my Catholic community in Erie Pennsylvania. In fact quite the opposite you know it would have been got you could help her masturbating so you could picture picture masturbating to a female. You know is twice as bad So as far as commentary from other people I went to a Catholic girls all schools so it was interesting. It was sort of like that type of That teachers a less. You know like that sort of negativity like I bet sister so and so was a lesbian. Or I bet Mrs so and so is gay that sort of like a negative lesbians gross not necessarily directed squarely at me. I was a funny girl in a high school. Like I crack jokes. I was like class clown which I think is a classic Gay self-preservation Maneuver COMEDIANS poking funny. That is funny though. Isn't it. I never thought about it like that. But Yeah I think it's it's like a it's a type of martial art So you mentioned obviously felt Different when you were young but women's first time he's sort of realized it was a sexual things well so when I was going through puberty I had a kind of centralized dream about a woman that I knew and I told my mom pretty urgently because I was weirded out and I I must have been like twelve or thirteen well and I told I said Hey I had a dream that was like this and Blah Blah Blah and. My mom is so lovely. She just calmed me down. It was like look. You're going through puberty right now. So you're gonna I think all sorts of weird things do not bother thinking about this for another second. All kinds of bizarre thoughts are going to pop into your head. See later. I'll tell you. Yeah exactly so really I was able to sort of via like safe mode of thinking. Just think like I'm going through puberty just because I'm fantasizing about women doesn't mean I'm gay. It's just that my hormones are going bonkers and eventually they'll settle on men So that's what you told you so. Yeah that was my logic. I was because of what you've been told school and by that I mean at school. It's not like I'd been given any sort of lesson in about like sexuality and how it materializes I think mostly that little blanket of cover that had been provided by my mom and by the way not not like in a negative way. She was just trying to make me feel better and I don't think she thought I was gay. I don't legit. I don't think she thought like Oh my daughter's gay. I'm going to give her a cover. I do think she just believed leave. That this was sort of like it. Sounds like you will genuinely confused that. So Yeah Yeah. I don't think either of US knew that like that I. It wouldn't transfer over to men you know like I. I never had sex about men but that was also not a detail that I told my mom. So you carried on having they sort of fantasies and not really knowing what your sexuality was a really understanding was was. was there a sort of moment where you went. Oh hang on the dots adjoining up here. I think I might be guy. Yeah I finally admitted to myself when I was in university so I went to university in New York City which is a great Playground for a a gay kid coming out and and I really was boy. Did homosexuality need to really work hard with me. I stayed in the closet for my for America's four years of university degree. I was in the closet for three of them in New York City with a gay best friend. Yeah Oh my God. And they've got amazing clipper called the Click Club. Do you know about that. I do know that clip club and meow mix. AP meow mix. Yeah I want to show you what do I. That's it was sort of like there. I was in like the most bountiful. The whole place on earth for being a young lesbian and doing nothing about it but I finally came out The summer between my third and my final year so I I went and saw the movie bound with Gina. Gershon Jennifer Tilly. I think most lesbians are h have have watched bound SORTA fly. It should be sort of prescribed relations to something that you need to watch as part of your coming to terms. Maybe even as a test like dea thank you are watch this. If if this doesn't pull you screaming out of the closet then you're probably not see. I watched that and then it's like you know had like several fever dreams after that and then the first person I actually came out to besides myself a priest. Wow Yeah I wasn't expecting uh-huh and I went to So I I still you know growing up Catholic. I was still trying to live who I was in New York City. I didn't want to go to New York City and become like a completely different person and so I was still going to church every Sunday morning. And I'm not an idiot like I went to a church. Very progressive neighborhood. So this was not a very hellfire and brimstone brand of Catholocism. This was a nicer sort of like reformed liberal branch of Catholicism and it was a church in Chelsea which historically is a pretty gay neighborhood in New York City and I went to a confessional and you know the the priest is behind the thing and I just say I think I think I might be gay. And they call it so you of course can't see you and technically they're not really allowed to be like ghoul regardless of their own feeling. They've gotta to give sort of like what the pope prescribes as how to deal with these situations. So I had quite fearful at this point really expecting that. The priests going to tell me that like my soul needs to be cleansed in that like I need to do this. That and the other thing and that it's wrong but instead you know and I really thank God that like i. I was at this this point in my life I was in New York City. I was in a church. Chelsea aide said well okay. Well look. I'm I'm supposed to say some things and and You know I want to know. Let's talk a little bit more about this. Have you acted on your Your gay feelings and I said well no I hadn't because I you know I'm not very cool. Watch the film barrel exactly and he said okay. Well what I'm going to say to you Technically this isn't the line that I'm supposed to us but I would say in your gay relationships. Treat your partners like I would ask you to if you were straight as in like like basically I think what his advice was like. Don't go out and be a hooker. Okay like just like if you're going to you know fall in love with someone you respect them respect yourself and Cetera et cetera. And so sort of gave me like a very cautious like it's okay basically. Just be a good gay Catholic in your relationships. That's exactly what you needed to hear. Probably a one hundred percent is good as you were going to get from a Catholic price. Yeah I think and this is it. I think people's experiences rance's with religion vary greatly depending on where they are in the world. you know what is kind of coming out of the church in that in that moment in time again again I think you know geographically. I was just lucky luckier than ninety percent of my gay friends. So how did that fail. Then did you think Oh. Archie is okay to be gay. Were you still a bit sort of Still GonNA stand the closet. This is still look great with God her. Did you fill up to the what was a massive relief so someone who felt pressure from religion growing up Catholic. It was a massive relief to feel and understand that. I'm not crazy. There are people in the world even in religion that like. I don't think I'M GONNA burn in Hell for just basically living my truth and then it made me consider. Who Am I gonNA tell next?
Rising dollar knocks pound and euro
"Can use a single sentence you need to know I continue to think that cutting is not necessary in may prove to be a mistake as time goes by will speak to that strategist here in a moment Mr just a vote of alliance burns dean opposed to what we saw yesterday I love it the economist Francine request said she said it was a bizarre meeting and that really captured what John and I observed as Michael McKee was in the press conference yesterday the bazaar move John is dollars strange this morning is a key story yeah that is the continuation of the thing from yesterday the shock absorber in G. ten right now is the US dollar euro dollar breaking down to one ten one ten thirty three cable very briefly with one twenty handle one twenty one fifteen and there are now many watching your away from the brick city cable dynamic governor currently speaking now of the bank of England meeting Bloomberg surveillance this morning brunch but cone Resnick checkout business of baseball and original MLB video series exploring the business side of America's pastime visit Cohn Resnick dot com slash MLB corner as a kid visor re assurance tax and we think charisma is well Germany you bring in Gershon here with that fiery first sentence in his research we love having guests on the show let's bring in Goshen distance out alone spends thing co head of fixed income question just what me through your initial reaction to the last twenty four hours your morning jog your morning Tom that was a bizarre bizarre press conference I think I was on your show a couple weeks ago we talked about how you know maybe Alison how higher drugi to do his his press conferences because that guy's a maestro in terms of how we present thing so let it again in the house is not a very polished speaker he was he struggled big time yesterday that the government's messy speak to his intelligence but that he got to consideration but the thing the other two things are the fed is confused here it's just not clear why they're doing what they're doing and the the do you look at that against the backdrop of the longer term issues in the fed there's a lot of debate in the fed now about what is monetary policy supposed to be right does the Phillips curve even work anymore it certainly doesn't appear to work at least in the U. S. right how much are they willing to move in terms of overshooting in either direction how much they care about asset prices these are fundamental questions that haven't been answered so they're trying to make like a cyclical move within a secular confusion as to what they're really trying to accomplish over the long run thank goodness in a mid cycle adjustment what is a mid cycle adjustment made to you with the team at alliance burns thing right now well I had I we get you to think you know it when you look back at the school if all the noise in the market place you look back years from now and of those twenty five basis point either caught or hike really mean much in the real economy it's kind of around the area so it's more psychology than anything and you know it's it's we could see the think if they were going to call it it's going to end up being seventy five a hundred basis points something meaningful obviously not all at once but you know this this twenty five basis points were not for we're going to go I think it what's interesting is that everyone talk about now you know what's the data going to be starting of course with with payrolls tomorrow it's not just the data I think they're looking at it's also the flow of information and and the political scene what's going to happen on trade in the next couple of months what's gonna happen more globally globally political gonna happen the M. countries to go to insulation is one of the great doctrines it we've got the idea of goods disinflation maybe all right goods deflation and we've got service sectors the ability of a higher inflation are you in any kind of a camp that service sector inflation begins to diminish and come down towards the lower goods inflation well I think we're in we've been in a kind of secular change for for how the economy works for a long time that room because inflation and one could argue has been coming down for a very long time pending how you measure it and it's going into into service inflation I think inflation is a very hard thing to measure certainly the by the measures the fed is using it's not high enough and that could be a possible reason why they're trying to do this but again you know it if we don't expect to see major this of this this card is not going to change you know main street economy such that we're gonna see a big change in inflation why they do it is I'm struggling you know I think the best the best reason you can look at is if you look at kind of where the tips market has has really that were break even have gone there gone way down and check it yesterday but no one for the ritual of one point five on the ten year to pick back up to one point six one point seven break even rate and you know that's just that's below what they think the normal level is at a time when the economy is strong so if you think about it that way real rates were let's call it sixty seventy basis points and given how worried they are maybe they thought that was too high that's the best that desperation I can have the other the more cynical explanation as they're responding to the political winds and so you know they don't want to be seen as it I think the the I want to say that the fed ex central banks in general worldwide I think they have a lot more control over cycles but we actually do suggestion what does that mean for the yield curve right now because yesterday we saw some significant planning on Tuesday tens little bit of state Miceli this morning just how you guys position Goshen with that in mind at the moment yeah I think if you look at the you look at the totality of what happened yesterday equities lower the Kerr flatter as you site and the dollar much stronger that's exactly the opposite of what you want to cut rates actually tightening financial conditions so yeah what does it mean I I I I think it's a very hard to predict this in the short term I think investors continued the theme we've been talking about for awhile have to continue to expect lower returns across most asset classes going forward and the other I don't think this in itself changes much within the key is going to be not so much with a cut in September which I think clearly from the press coverage yesterday you have to conclude it's a coin flip because I'm not sure they know what they're going to do but or is this just a mid cycle kind of whatever that means of twenty five basis points or they're going to continue to cut we're gonna go closer to the old town of one to one and a half percent level wondering down Kirsten to a new terminal value a new terminal value for GDP for interest rates maybe the glide path of what the fed does where they have to bring it under two percent inflation target I mean is that really what all this job openings about well okay it's hard to say right consensus has been that rates are too low for a long time and it seems see begin now are saying yeah we're going to be in this apartment able to use one of our competitors for either the new normal wear just you gonna have loads ever heard that phrase me either I don't know that it I don't know how smart those people were but good morning but look at I think you know the we we're we're always so confident in in where we think markets are going to go now we think things in the low forever we really just don't know in the long term and you know it the it was it was less than a year ago less than a year ago we're sitting here how many times the figure the height the ten years on a four percent and now where the other way we should be a little bit humble yet activists the hunch your TV show just the other week it is the only industry where people can be wrong again and again and again and people still want to hear what they have to I remember some big name saying that once we cross three to sixty to sixty five on the ten year treasury that was it for the secular bull market guessing just a final question for you I hear on the grapevine the U. like loans at the moment can you just give me some clarity on that well hi I think that you know people investors bought loans for all the wrong reasons well they thought the yields are going to go up and we are we to bond how long do honestly outperform other forms of credit when when when rates go up and now that rates of man and no one expects rates to go up to a one to one point I mean floating rate debt anymore and that's also wrong in fact there's been some like thirty five straight weeks without flows from that the class that actually has on the way underperformed other parts of credit and there's some more value opportunities there so you know we're yeah we have more loan exposure in our broad funds and we've had in probably a decade this is an excellent person to say so thank you with this you can see him on the real yield it's important property of Bloomberg very soon afternoon maybe even called the real dollar maybe we need a foreign exchange program this week the way things are going good for the strength is well I want to go back to your one ten thirty eight it is really remote and we we've talked enough about it because of the brexit focus and sterling but nobody euro all one nine and your would be extraordinary just allows the last twelve months in the broken at this really tight trading range of in stock in it around one twelve between one twelve one of fourteen I would say for the most of this year Tom and now starting to break out and not with all the weakness with breaking out with all the strength and I don't know how many people were looking for that a month ago got into what they thought would pay anything cycle from the federal reserve shot of the David bloom he just we see in others that have talked of dollar stability in even a dollar strength I'm looking at the first strategist he hasn't tweeted on dollar yet this morning the wealth in Chile well he's he's open about his goods are doing something to Kentucky Senate comes today but we know the press got is still some foreign exchange I I can't imagine again when I look at their the simple D. X. Y. the mathematics of the Bloomberg D. X. Y. is excellent but the it's one ninety eight point eight four is a stronger U. S. dollar this is
