Why Spotify Is in It to Win It
"Well thank you everybody for joining me here today. We're with a grip caprio who was previously at his own podcast production company and the branded space griffin. I actually met on the quired. Fm a slack channel and started talking about my spotify article which this is the podcast companion for group showed me that. He shared a lot of those same opinions. Probably three to six months before. I even started posting on sounds profitable so we talked a lot about it afterwards. He definitely was a big influence in my follow up article and i thought it would be great to introduce some of you to him because he's got some great perspectives on this. So griff how you doing today doing great. Thanks for having me brian. It's a great to join here on the on the podcast. Yeah it's great to have you here and so you know. We talked about spotify a lot. And this is what the conversations going to be about today and one of the things that we had talked about was spotify goal. Isn't just podcasting right. it's it's about owning the ear. What's that mean to you overall. And what do you think that that means for. Podcasting specifically yeah. That's a good question. I think one of the things to keep in mind is spotify is not assuming that the future of podcast listening. Looks like the past. And i think that's important lens to kind of come out the moves into decisions that they're making and so when they talk about owning the year you know they really don't see podcasting as any different than or frankly audio books or meditations. They see it as audio content. And so if you're listening to something in the headphones they wanna be where you're streaming it from and so much like facebook didn't care what you're reading your news feed. It could be articles that could be photos from families it could be you know news updates. Spotify really doesn't care what you're listening to songs. It's streamed from them

The author John Mandeville claimed to have glimpsed one during his travels in the thirteen. Hundreds and Saint Cuthbert a seventh century monk from England who was widely regarded as a miracle worker was said to have owned two griffin eggs and claws centuries later an excavation of Saint Cuthbert's shrine revealed that these items were actually ostrich eggs and goat horns. But they likely gave him a large amount of prestige during his time. Griffin parts were said to possess magical healing properties especially when they were acquired by a holy person in particular the Griffin's feather was said to have the ability to heal and blindness but the Griffin's biggest claim to fame during the Medieval ages was its use as a symbol of military and political power the lion and eagle or both strong animals each considered a king of their own domain. Perhaps it's not surprising. Then that many a conqueror and would be warlord sought to claim their hybrid as a single the Griffin was emblazoned on coats of arms shields and banners its inclusion was intended to both frighten enemies and comfort serfs evidence that whoever wore it have the strength and right to rule and to protect but while nights kings and holy men were busy using. Griffin's as symbols of Prestige in power many common people began to see them in a different light medieval writers and storytellers depicted. Griffin's as greedy miserly creatures hoarding their riches like the Nobles who wore them on their crests. The brothers Grimm made this sort of connection in their short story the Griffin the tail sees its upon them this beast as the adversary of poor young man tasked with stealing. It's treasure something. Far More valuable than gold.

"The Griffin is one of the biggest beasts in mythology carvings of this eagle lion hybrid can be found in Persian Egyptian architecture dating back to the fourth millennium BC. Since then it is featured in the myths and legends of Cultures Around the globe from medieval Europe to Mongolia the Middle East and India while there is some variation between cultures the Griffin is most often depicted as a beast with the body of a lion and the head wings and front talons of an eagle. Both the Eagle and lion are considered kings of their domain and by combining the two the Griffin's physical form Exudes Majesty like a powerful king it commands fear and respect both on the earth and in the skies above the Griffin is most prevalent in the mythology of Ancient Greece. Griffin's were said to act does oozes hounds I referenced by the Greek. Playwright ESCALATES IN HIS EPOCH. Prometheus bound in this text he eerily warned. Beware the sharp beak towns of Zeus. That bark not the Griffin's and Zeus is not the only Greek figure that's tied to this majestic beast Alexander. The Great and the Amazonian warriors were both said to have ridden Griffin's into battle but the Griffin's most enduring connection in Greek mythology is to the Sun God ancient Greek artists frequently depicted these majestic winged beasts as Apollo's steeds pulling his chariot through the cosmos. It was this association that led the Griffin to become a symbol of the sun as well as the earth with wisdom to match its ferocious nature. During the Persian empire's reign the Griffin was associated with protection from witchcraft and other evil forces for while the Griffin has been revered at many points throughout history. It has also been feared later. Greek tapestries show the Griffin as a terrifying man killer while Mesopotamia an art depicts it as an ally of the devil himself this dichotomy of reverence and fear was captured by the Greek historian. Herodotus in the fifth century BC e he had heard of the Griffin's through the reading of a poem by a traveler named Diaz.

"Okay. So is there baseball's boring baseball's boring and it is the last sport that the white man is the best player in the hockey. Hockey's it's just you don't think he matches even up even though hockey's have such a thrilling but for some reason it doesn't really catch on like Improv. And Hockey is the Sport Ball. Hockey is like it's there. It's exciting sport but it's still missing something. We won the Stanley Cup. And you could walk around and nobody knew. We said the twenty thousand La Kings fans were at the staple center. There were there. Yeah those are rabbit. I love what I'm saying is in baseball. I just it's a regional sport support. You know I just people just really. I don't know people don't care about and it's a foreign sport you know we're being honest you know it's white guys you don't think the NBA's foreign the NBA to me is the most international sport period right now possibly but when you see. There's a lot when you see so many American black athletes I to me I. The League is the best league okay. It's postal the NFL but the NFL NFL has the NFL has flaws with its system the NFL. What was the flaws? The flaws with his system is that it is an owner's league right isn't that's why it's the most popular TV show on five networks because there's games because one game a week one day a week. Nba The NBA had fifteen games in the season and every game connor with hype and analysis. You Up to the NBA would outperform the NFL hands down. I don't think so did hands down. I think that I think that the footballs you know it. Just us back to the you. Think it's more gets more visceral. I WanNa see to do several of the game and you know it's like it's about it's a you know and also also the NFL you have the college game. Was I love you become a fan of a college team and you become a fan of those players and those football players? Those fans follow that football player into the anti so. He doesn't have that so I agree with you in that in that because kids are one in Duns in college. They're not associated with the college. As much I agree like in building fads or not making college football you got to plan the threes and became a superstar before he even got to to watch the PELICANS. Pelicans and and I think that injured that year. That Kevin Durant and What's his name Odin When they it was one that was the first year and they had to play at Texas and he had to play it was great college. Basketball was fantastic. Then those guys go into the league I I don't know either. They need a farm system to make a great but anyways I'm a big NBA Fan. But I see that you can't you could say everything you WanNa say about the NBA. And all that stuff but the numbers are proving you wrong. You guys are just wrong. The is the high number popular television. Show on five network. America's funniest videos it doesn't mean it's better Networks fine I understand. We enjoy it. Okay but but I'll tell you this but I'll tell you this right now you're game listen to me right now. They're excited. Yeah but there are people in China. Who could give a fuck about the Tennessee? Titans but you walk around China and I guarantee you every single one of those people know who who steph curry is everything will know who Lebron James is the. Nba is the world's game. That I have a problem with that. You could have a problem with that but I'm telling you right now the NFL is is an American game period. They call football. Football is soccer in the rest of the world. American football fine. You might have you might be right about in America but the NBA on an international level is dwarfs the NFL times. A million. I think that the the stars you know like I'm pretty sure that the Memphis Grizzlies to walk around China and not have any issues that job that tons of people know job mirant yet. I bet they do. I bet they know his trial attempted dunk. Overly how good is he? He's good fun is that he's I but I think that the You know the the people that really control the NBA or not the NBA. Geez Nike and China's more say so in what's going on we saw that when the Houston Darryl Maure Tried to tried to tweet out that thing about Hong Kong and then boom. That was crazy. I know that was that was the by the weight that was the first misstep the NBA made in my opinion public. I'm sure they made a budge behind the scenes those the first misstep the NBA made publicly in my opinion all the stuff that went down to the NBA. Donald Sterling makes racist comments like that fucker out of there. Get them out of the people guys. WanNa come on the court wearing. I can't breathe. T shirts you kneel for a silent protest in the NFL. They're saying Rams Lil this dude. That's only because it's not on the collective bargaining agreement. If the you know the guys you don't be so emotional the NBA like being I know but the NBA. They have more control so they they had that stuff in the collective bargaining agreement. You they have to stand for the national anthem. It's in their contract and I know I'm Jay. But the rams come out of the tunnel with their hands up right to make up. Don't shoot hands up. Don't shoot all right. And then they get reprimanded for that by the League. It's a big issue for the League for the ramps the NBA players. Come OUT WITH ERIC. Garner. I can't breathe shirts on and they don't get anything. The League actually encourages them to express themselves. That's sort of difference. I know but there's but there's certain things like you know. A lot of things are just for show fine. You don't think that a lot of things like you know it's just it's like you know. I'M AGAINST PROTESTING AT WORK. Would you say you would protests? Were protests yeah. I don't like work protests again. You know if you were protesting at work how how brave you know take off work and then you guys want to protest the cops go down to the city hall right. You know Lebron James go stand at City Hall. That will be news. That is actually true. You know it's a good Eric. I don't care about like Oh. I have a T. shirt on before the child's game. I'm GONNA play that. I make thirty million dollars. I think You should make a t shirt Erikgriffin. I can't remember obviously the NBA. They they're such as like they`re. They're just liberal elite. You know what I mean. It's a liberal league that like no. I don't know about that man I don't know about. I don't know if that because yes I agree. I agree with you in that. They themselves are saying they're sensitive to issues. I wouldn't like I've seen it. They're trying to be sensitive to issues. They don't affect them while it's not going to affect them specifically but I guarantee you there are people in their worlds that it will affect and so they feel well and I think those are the people that they should be working with but this is their mouthpiece. I can't I can't fault them I it's easy you know I get it. I mean how easy it is. I'm saying Real No. It's easy to go make some t shirts and put him on. I'm saying to make some real change and have some real effects. I agree that. Y'All one step further you just don't just make an NBA cares commercial. Go Out in fucking care. All right I buy that this is Jada Kiss me Erik Griffin is with us. We're GONNA do quits with him on the other side is Stay with us from the cheap seats anywhere..

"And N and computer love how good at their craft work where the squad. This is viewed from the cheap seats. We have a fantastic episode today. It is always fun when we can gather a funny friends who are into sports and we got one today. Erik Griffin is big clippers. Fan and the clippers are making their move as it were. I've watched the clippers closely. This season I will say it has been up and down. They have certainly been without all of their pieces performing to their highest levels at the same time it does feel like recently with their win over the nuggets and last night went on the road When recording this Against the thunder those are two very decisive wins. The thunder a team. They could meet in the playoffs. Decisive wins against two good west middle of the pack and high pack teams in the Western Conference It is feeling like Kawais team. It is feeling like Paul Georgia's team what it feels like and I will say this including it together is what feels like to me. When I watched the clippers play this will get into our top. Take where we're talking about. Who really is the dominant team? The shy who has the best shot as we are almost two thirds of the way through the season. It feels like the clippers have options. I don't know if the and we'll talk about this with Erik Griffin to. It feels like when they kick the ball to the corner and it goes to Paul George. You have confidence about what's going to happen when they set pick for Kawhi Leonard and he rolls around the pick. You've got you feel confident in what he's about to do you know that he can create his own shot. You know that when they need off they've got one too. I just Williams off the ban Lou Williams off the Bay Andrews Sham Landry. Shamet drains a lot of threes mantras herald is a guy who suddenly getting energy guy. Well he's guys scoring twenty five twenty six beverly issues beverly's playing great defense. Pat Beverley can knock down a shot once in a while when you need him but the thing is the clippers have multiple guys. You can look to and say see you think. They're going to be arrested because they're not putting all the load onto guys like the Lakers. But here's the deal. I've been watching the Lakers as well and I know people are talking about. How okay. So you know Milwaukee got the best record. They've got over fifty one of the best record but they're playing in the east and what happened the other night. I don't know if you saw this but Miami. Kinda ran them out like a Western team would run them out in Miami beat Milwaukee and showed the blueprint for how you beat Milwaukee a Guay Western teams will run them up. So it's to me again. You Jam the Middle. Up and say honest. Beat me from the outside. And until he can prove that he can do that he's not going to do it. And look there are other players Milwaukee. That's a good team that they're not fifty two and eight or whatever are by mistake right. That's not a coincidence. They're great however I think the team that in my pillow in my opinion who are positioned best to make a run and win the NBA. Finals is the Lakers. I think the Lakers. That's the team right now. Who after watching tons and tons of basketball this year? I say to myself you got two guys. So Lebron the knock on Lebron is. He's not the guy wants to take the shot the end of the game. He does not have to be in this situation. You got a knockdown shooter from the outside Danny Green. You got other guys like caldwell-pope uis hitting shots and and Bradley's hitting shots from the outside and then and you've got Kouzmine who's even an afterthought at this point but the inside outside game that you have with Anthony. Davis Davis is the guy who I think when the Games when the playoff games get tight and they're like one games. Every playoff game is like a one possession. Lebron get the ball. Who did they get the ball to at the very end of the All Star game on Lebron team they got it to? Anthony Davis allowed any hit. The two shots one shot to those outcomes that you get with Anthony Davis you get one of three outcomes. He's either going to make his shot he's going to get fouled on the way to making his shot or he's GonNa make shot and get fouled. There are very few and he's like a high percentage fee three hundred shooters say when the game is close at the end. You can just keep feeding the guy on the the brow on the inside and why him I just think first of all we're in for one of your twos threes because the NBA is the three heavy. I I hear you on that. But I'm saying what will happen in the game because there are guys on the Lakers that can knock down the three including Lebron. I saw him walk across center. Court and on the aren Lakers drain like a thirty nine foot three. I think there are guys in the early quarters. That will keep the game. Close for the Lakers. And then when it comes down to the end possession basketball. They have good defense. They can run guys out to the line. They can run people off the three point line. I think they're the type of team. I'm just GONNA say this. I think the Lakers are the type of team that if they if they have a chance to make that run. I think they will make the run. I'm going to predict it right now. I think I was listening to a bunch of other sports. Talk Chatter specifically you know. Listen to what Stephen Smith has stay. I mean come on come on get. What are we talking about? He'd become on Max. He's he really seems to think that the clippers other team and they both were defiant not to fight but they both were extremely confident. Like it's not even a discussion that the they they're like the Lakers could do it but they're like they aren't the best team. Both of them are saying that. The Clippers are the best team are the clippers in second or third place right now. They're in second place. Okay so every day. No one talking about Milwaukee. No one is talking about Milwaukee because I think like you said you there are ways to defeat Milwaukee look at who they are and you look at how they play and you say to yourself. That's a team that can beat. That's a team that has weaknesses that can get exposed. What do we say about the NBA? What do we say about the NBA Playoffs? Seven Game Series. Your weakness reasoning expose. Everything gets exposed your weaknesses getting exposed. That is what is interesting. So the regular season to me is like the L. Sats to law school or law. School becoming a lawyer or to me of your great at the L. Sats. You'll get into a great law. School doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be a good lawyer. If you're great in law school you can be great is a law student. But it doesn't necessarily mean you're going be a good lawyer or it is a microcosm of this year's NBA All Star game. The regular season is quarters one three flips back and forth. Some players have their things. They get hot quite Leonard scores. Twenty five points. Why Leonard was the MVP right but then in the fourth quarter when defense locks down when the playoffs starts the only person getting bucket so the only person getting opportunities was Anthony Davis right. And that's the guy who ended up ultimately winning the game so you think it's going to be the Lakers i. I'd be curious to hear what everyone else is saying. It's going to be the clip. I I understand that. And they're saying that Lebron even the Lebron they're saying is the number two in MVP voting right now behind Janas Okay behind the Greek freak. I hear you I hear you. I'm just saying I have watched enough in the eye test for me of this season. I've watched tons of Lakers and clippers games. I think first of all be interesting. When the Lakers and clippers matchup? Soon good for basketball. Now I watched. I watched the clippers play against Jayson tatum and the Celtics. And I'm like Jason James. The Best Guy in the court right now the best guy on the court when he's hot he's hard to beat to me. It's very exciting. It's Eh we're heading towards what I believe the fact we're GonNa reap the benefits of what happened this past off season the fact that co. I didn't also go to the Lakers the fact that the NBA he saved the NBA might save. 'cause now you've got a situation where so many teams feel like they've got a shot. You got four five six teams right now. So Miami just beat Milwaukee. Milwaukee is only lost eight times this year Miami. Just beat Milwaukee okay. Yeah if Miami beat them they say themselves. We can beat this team right. We have to we note. We have the formula. We got a great coach. We got Jimmy Butler. We can beat this team And Toronto's pricing. We can beat this team. Seventy sixers are like Joel embiid. It is here. We're great at home. Yes Joel Embiid. In a seven game series. You don't WanNa face that note but it's GonNa be exciting regardless of the talent level either way. I think whoever comes out of the West Winds. I think a team like the rockets is GonNa. They're gonNA make noise. Wow I think there are so many teams it's going to be the most excite. We're barreling towards what I consider to be hopefully the most exciting NBA playoffs. We've seen in in the most fraught Major League baseball season ever right. Those things will be happening simultaneously all right when we come back from the break. We're going to talk to our Buddy Erikgriffin. Get his take on the clips and see how he's feeling. I mean sometimes you get too close to situation you care too much. You can't speak. You dare not speak your your greatest hopes. 'cause you're like if I say them I'll jinx and we'll talk about his fan. We'll find out This is Intro. This is from a fantastic album. I love old hand. This is Kevin crowder we'll be back with more from the chiefs.

I just was it just means spirit princess in Japanese. I think they say it at one point right yeah the princess of the of the four it means like spirit slash monster. Princess Yeah which is I was. I was doing some research on this movie and there's like apparently a really in-depth documentary about the making of just this which I would be curious to see. You'll see the you may be saving this. As for the series the news ocoee yes kingdom. Kingdom of dreams of madness did not know there was a specific documentary about this one. Yes I found a couple of clips of it on Youtube and it's really like gets really in there are just about like frame by frame animation and how they they work. CGI and I watch like ten minutes of it was cool. This box that we all have is weird because it scrubs off all of the special features in the individual movies. There's like the bonus onus disc which has the documentary on it right but otherwise like when Disney did their separate releases and when g kids has now done their separate releases they have individual features features yeah Pritam. I don't know I don't know either. They're robbing us of content. We'll hopefully it'll get speak. They don't gifting us more shelf space. That's true. That's the trade off. thank you all very much for listening. Please remember to rate review and Subscribe Griffin. Do you want to plug anything forgot. You should play casts yeah.

He does boots. It's a movie yeah well. It's teaming oh no he didn't do the TV One. No He's doing the movie Roger Ailes Okay Griffin. What do you think about the new popular. Hollywood trend trend of everyone making movies and TV shows about Roger Ailes. Everyone's favorite rocks deceased Fox News Executive Board Bored Board Board. You're bored of it. I'm bored of trying to think of a an opinion about it. I've been sitting here trying to think of an opinion and then I was I I was like why don't you think about the very big meatballs that you have in your refrigerator instead. So then I started thinking about those meatballs. I couldn't Jenner I apologize. I couldn't pretend a I know I have not seen the show but I assume that it is mostly like Roger. ailes walks into a room and they're like doing a presentation and he's like how about Eve Kohler is GonNa be the same thing like what if we lied yeah yeah. It's like like a TV channel really do the news and he's like okay. Okay okay but what what if it was evil and that we're like great. We'll make millions movie right. Is there one makeup artist who's just making bank the Dick Cheney movie movie and like anytime they need a very bad luck jowled gentlemen as the jolly makeup Churchill to right darkest hours all the same. Hollywood has one set of prosthetic. Gel just going around the around the horn yeah yeah just fills them with like yogurt or whatever and they wobble around. You know what's so funny. There are actors who look like that and that's really every time someone makes a movie or ratio like this. They're like Nah. I gotTA pick. Someone looks really different right because we're fun. It's like wow but like Damian Lewis playing Toronto Mayor Doug Ford. He's he's doing now. They did it. Oh Jesus they made a movie and you're like Oh notoriously spelt enhance a man. Oh my God yeah who can't pictures okay does she has such a burden to give someone jowls jails occur in nature some of these Benner fake okay there we go. That's anyway. I heard Christian Bale.

Don't take your sister president. Shoot my friend in the face Esperance's Monon Okay Yeah yes. Oh come on San she tax iron town yes. She has big fight. She's raised by wolves on knock. You raised by wolves allegiance to Kim's now dislikes them actually quite a great deal of you interpreter and it's it's subtle interpretation. She will say something like I don't like humor. Yes at all right that was that was when I started to go. I feel like maybe what they're teeing up is that she doesn't like like wolves. She likes he and he likes. She does like Boris. I really like how like ugly the Pfizer Yeah in this movie the first the first like fight that you get with with Shannon it is on this mountainside and they are going up this very narrow path and here she comes on Wolf's back with two wolves flanking just like running down on the mountain and instantly. You're like this is going to be really fucking bad. All these guys have all these guys have ancient guns and they're on a very narrow path on a mountainside like this is gonNa suck for everyone involved and sure enough like dudes. Go flying off the mountain dudes get chopped to bits. Wolf gets shot and goes flying off the mound like instantly instantly. It's so fast and ugly and not like not like this neat little choreographed ballet. It's just what would happen. If three big big wolves fought fought a bunch of dudes with ancient rifles on the side of a mountain yeah. They're in elegant in a way that's interesting because the movie doesn't have these like Oh. That's fucking awesome. moment yeah like. I think he doesn't want people to get off on the violence right. Even though every time someone shows up you're like imagining the cheaper version of our son is like the Ku hero right and instead. He's like she's frightening. She is literally what someone raised by wolves would be like very like she is close to inhuman yes and like I she talking. You WanNa be like our. I'm with this Guy Right. He's like the audience surrogate but he's like well for money isn't evil arms. It Kinda Dopey yes. I don't know he he's he's genuinely baffled by most of the things going on because he doesn't understand why it can't be like how it is right. Where's the harmony guys balance yet the pretty pretty soon after the mountainside fight and after he meets everybody in town and cease Zahn with her blood face across the river. She's got. She got both regard but it's big. It's on the poster she got. She's got a blood face is when like the big fight in town happens and the whole time I was like look. How can I make this whole stop. It's like dude. You put in like fifteen minutes and let me just get in here. Hey this fight is bad and have you thought about not doing it and they're like everybody in that entire.

I'm not saying thing. This is my belief that in the bible or at least christians believe that say for instance homosexuality is a sin did but then you can't accept you. Don't get it why outright. Why can this person who you're supposed to be following. Do these things but you can't don't get me. You know what i mean. I i mean this is my favorite talk about. I'm just so put off by all that that like. I dunno i it's a bummer to say like but it just having grown up around all that and being immersed in it so much because you're not only sunday but monday through friday for me and again on wednesday going to chapel. I just don't understand how that makes any sense and that's only just one example. There's a lot of things can i go. I'll just put this to you. Maybe my greatest joy in life is realizing to me that would jesus saying and would all of the great teachers ears are saying all of spirituality boils down to you are not all of these transitory things that are passing all these false identities including your sexuality including your profession profession including your income including where you're from your family and it's like who you are is that in dwelling what we would call the holy spirit and the christian tradition shen the ottoman or the buddha nature that inward divinity. That's who you really are and jesus is going around saying look. It's not about who looks holy. Who's in the temple. 'cause i'm kicking it with these guys. I mean with these guys. I'm hanging out with mary magdalene all this stuff because he's trying to demonstrate that we're all in one thing together gather that there's one game happening and we're all equal beautiful dignified participants and we've taken that message jesus never came to create a religion he came to reform. He came to be a person but he reformed judaism. You're trying to correct some wrong thinking judaism. I'm not saying he was a jew. He was trying to change the way they went about. Being jewish that sounded antisemitic meant he went to change the way that he was jewish and how others were jewish in in the religious sense and that got turned into a religion because we can't it goes back to competition and ego wanna be the winners and we wanna prove that others are wrong and that's why schools are teaching you instead of what jesus would have done in my opinion. This is the <hes> the interconnectivity of these faiths were saying here's how to debate with these faiths to prove that they're wrong and you're right which is an ego trip who is proving who is wrong who is behind that debate. There's this there's this still quiet place in you you in you in me that has nothing to do with all of these identities and these words and these labels that we put on ourselves because all of that is passing away and that's what jesus is saying when he's kicking it with a tax collectors like you can't see past tax collector and you're saying the same. I'm all excited. You're saying the same mother fucking thing you can't see past someone's sexual sexual orientation that has absolutely zero effect on you right not not at all like again noted scandal uh-huh yeah we c k has the thing where he's talking about candle noted.

"Man. I'm supposed to be here like you know like i came from nothing and now i'm here and it's like yeah you were. You're six eight and like the the strongest person ever. This is exactly what you're supposed to be doing tosa and i. I was going to say like i'm six ten two hundred sixty pounds and all i had to do to get that was eat and go outside a little like it's true. I was given rubin like yes. You have to lift weights and you have to do things but like that's not hard when you have a person a coach dedicated to telling you what ways to lift putting the weight on their hopefully. That's why with your four saltwater like someone telling you what to eat. Br of course someone should tell you what to eat. I see that the same thing as like someone knowing how to light a scene in a show someone you're the exact so someone should motherfucking be telling you what exactly and if you don't do it that's on you absolutely yeah but the scene is easier to control than a person. I mean like i have to imagine especially the way that we you know sort of worship celebrity just in general the men specially athletic celebrity. It must be tempting as you get bigger. I have a hard time imagining coaches. Let's take michael jordan. Let's take everybody middling that you play with it. How do you tell michael jordan what to do. There has to be an element. I'm in humility that you maintain. It must be hard for you. I mean i don't know much about your career sports wise but it's just like you've done some stuff. You're four-time eh six eighteen. I don't even when you make your sixteen time and the most valuable blake and like you were saying when you were young and hungry of course you're gonna do what the coach tells you and you're scared and is it harder. And how do you maintain taint humility humility. That's 'cause nobody's rapping about humility rap about your. That's what this thing right. Your talent talent level and your level of humility have to match. You know what i mean and a lot of times. They don't yeah when you when your talent level in your shoot you level a level of humility or guests self-awareness at the same time yeah match then you will continue to get better yeah if your talent is up here in your humility is up here. You're you're gonna keep saying like oh. I don't need to like or your self awareness. I don't need to work on this when you so. You can't really get better do you. Your talent is down down here and your humility. I mean that's just normal parks cicero worse than what you're saying. It's a little bit like a bell curve. You don't want to little little humility. You also probably don't want too much. We don't need to show that for sure. Everybody knows you need to have a certain level of confidence to do anything i i think i'm even trying to separate separate humility and confidence. Do you know what i mean. You can be confident in your ability and still be humble. Yeah you know what i mean. That's interesting and i i probably cried and explain that the right way but it's in my mind those like the guys that are very very good and get better for the most apart are pretty humble like there was a kind of this new wave of guys like the kevin durant and the steph currys and all those guys that had come into the n._b._a. Who are so good and they're also pretty humble and self aware of like what they are and what they aren't feel like. The comedy is crazy with i just said i don't know either of those. Men are but like. I couldn't two of the mess. He's gonna show me five photos there in basketball uniforms all of them. I don't know who those those people. I see that like with comedy..
