They're they're they're a team that i would. I'm going to bet on. They lost their quarterback. Rutgers like i said brings back eleven so they obviously have their entire offense by tony guests. Here's the starting quarterback for temple. Now mitchell a guy who was on. Qb one the netflix show has a great social media. Presence is athletic. Can run like this is what we're talk about.

Mike basically like taught him everything and then he came in and started. Kind of cool. Both boise and ucf have new catches but new coaches. Sorry malzahn is an actual not a new coach. Dude from boise has never been a head coach. Who okay so i'm definitely taking. Ucf thank so one score. I hate going into boise though. Who's boise state's starting quarterback tony I just had it up stink. Or is he good. Let me pull it up. I mean it feels like either way. There's ucf guys knew.

"Frankenstein Really really okay. Sandra bullock's make up speed shit. Dog shit terrible. I don't know if that's true but that's one of the academy saying yeah. I don't know i like i said this was i think there's others like I forget the year that goodfellas came out. And what actually one. It's like ninety. Yeah something like that. But there's a couple of and this is when the classic ones and now that went back and saw because this is something. I think we've been talking about this all history. Like you know the fact that you forrest gump pulp fiction pulp fiction at the at the academy awards. Now i've seen them. And i've seen them all recently. I said it's it's a. It's a lot harder call now. I notice probably screaming like this. But if you're in the like you know that range of people things forrest. Gump is shit poorly aged pop culture stuff than yeah. Clearly pulp fiction. Admiralty will be timeless forever. You know shawshank redemption period piece timeless forever. I don't know about forrest gump because again. Twenty five twenty. Seven years on the results are kind of like mix that like. It just doesn't seem like have had staying power that some of these other films for sure. So yeah it's easy to sit here and twenty twenty one and judge these things but back then stolen harder. Yeah what else do we want to talk about zor. We were of we mind or we at the bottom restrain the bottom of the barrel. I think so man and say oh. If you ever see barely gump don't open it. Don't open it. It's probably just bad product from above gumption product. Shrimp company Any left to one of these days. We'll have to do dances with wolves and debate. Whether it's a better picture than than the goodfellas. Because i think that's a bad. That's this is of a this. This is something that probably would age even less well than than forrest gump versus pulp fiction. Yeah yeah but you have to watch three. And a half. Hour kevin costner. Kevin costner schmaltzy western native american picture. I've only seen it once and it was a is a kid when i did it so we'll see anyway. That's that's forrest if you haven't seen it it's an ear are like iran our age. At least it's a great time Even i think imagine that. There's a lot of stuff for for younger people. Don't you know. Because i didn't live through any of this history. This movie stops at about the time. I started paying attention but i still it. It's a good time. It's got a lot of heart. Great performance by tom hanks one of the defining performances of his career. And they're all what's solid work by gary sinise michael t williams robin writes Like i said even. Sally fields a person. I think tins overdo it a lot. Is you know you're saying something. If i i see a mother role and i got nothing to criticize about it with an actor that i don't really like so anyway. I hope you've enjoyed our kind of look back at the forrest gump ear. We'll am real soon with another prestige film to talk about here in bald new prestige until that time comes. I'm erin and i'm jim..

"Yeah they they approached some other restaurant conglomerate or whatever or company said hey come up with a pitch for bubba gump shrimp company and they did and over the course two years they rolled it out. And it's now a national chain. I'm kind of am i surprise. Surprise it anything that happens in america. Yeah why does that surprise you. I don't know because i happen more often. It may be. Their food is really good. I don't know i've never been to one. Do people go to restaurants simply because of like. Do people return to hard rock cafe after they've been to a hard rock cafe. That's a good question because hard rock cafe kind of shitty. It's just like they did. Like i think maybe bubba gump is the one that survived. Because i've still seen. There is one in vegas last time is there. I've i've seen them. I've actually been to bubba cup. It was been special. The right coma berry. I rather go to the crab. Joe's crab shack. I don't know i don't know about that. I mean that's been the casual seafood. Dining you've got red lobster joe's crab shack and bubba gump like they're all kind of bad long john silver's for fast food seafood housed. Yeah yeah but the five extras prices at. Because i was. What are you talking about this. I'm thinking pixar done a pizza planet. Sure toy story savia. Yeah one other thought. I had looking at notes is like they did a really good job of casting kid forrest gump. That's a tough role for a kid to play You know and he crushes it like some of the things. He does so good like making fun of the principal. Fucking his mom. The slow mo like his dawning realization. That he's fast as the like the leg. Braces are kicking off of the way. The kids promotes set. So fucking good. He is so him and the young ginny both are carrying a lot of fucking movie weight. And i feel like these aren't mentioned. Some of the all time great child performances think either one of these went on and did much of anything. But it's like young force doesn't have a lot of lions. So maybe that's why he's just kinda sit there but but he does he emotes really really well and like i said does some things. I think it's a hard. This is a hard nuance thing to do. I mean it. I guess the first three days of footage atta throw away. 'cause tom hanks was so bad. Struggle with the accent draw cadence struggle with the mannerisms and they just essentially like after it clicked ends meccas. Like let's just let's not use any of these first three days because it's such a like. Yeah that's that's that's a hard roll for tickets to play and they did a.

"Church also has excellent soundtrack dodd. Amazing amount of like incredibly popular music like it has four or five doors songs in it and three of them are like jammed in twenty seconds. Back-to-back montage thing. yeah i was. They spend some money on this. Maybe they spend like fifty five million dollars on a movie. That essentially like has a big scene right. Yeah maybe to the shrimp boats stuff is pretty big. But the rest of that that that definitely because i thought man they went to vietnam or something like that. That's but but yeah they did. Spend them and also. Did you know tom. Hanks did this movie for zero money. Right that's the other big budget boost. Right he did on points alone and with money. yeah i think. He pocketed twenty million for the picture. Which probably more than they would have paid him. Outright and god knows what it's up to now because like forrest. Gump is not become popular. Although i will say that it has honestly. I feel like papa forrest gump has dropped off the The popular consciousness. Your movie a few times and it didn't make much in the theaters when they released it. It's weird because like pulp fiction and especially I feel like shawshank redemption something to everyone discovers as like. Oh my god just fucking movie before competent seems to be diminishing maybe is like he had to see it at a particular time. The where before you get too cynical or something so you can still remember what it felt like. 'cause like yeah. I don't know how it feel. If i watch this move very first time now because i clearly remember how i felt that as much more conservative person i i saw this to What else do we want to talk about here. There's really like two more things. That i wanna talk about is one big topic the oscars. Okay well. I got to other things i i have to say. There is nothing more enjoyable life than when tom hanks screams as loud as he can in his stupid goofy voice. Because tom hanks has kinda goofy voice like he does. There's some element to it. That's always a little funny. And when i got a five bob. It's like the way that his voice says those words is so funny to me. i just love it. They bet may that last because we got. We got stung by hornets beaver island and yeah and then the way screams. I think you should go back to gray bo. Hollow bio ma. It's it is funny. It's it's pretty serious. I love it. It's so endearing also a the first impression of the lieutenant dan Berries the boys are you guys from alabama He surmises some stuff and then he goes like anyway arkansas. Little rock's a fine town like he's guys at all nothing. Just everything overs it. I thought that was really funny And then the last bit of trivia. I have the bubba gump. Shrimp company is a thing in real life. We know this. And i guess i didn't realize that this was essentially whole cloth created by paramount pictures. Two years after this movie came out the theme concept restaurant..

"That seen this cursing god. It's it's i didn't end. Yeah swimming at the in the com- what a great scene. Yep so you don't feel like he's he's punching it forest he's punching it everything else. Yeah yeah but that's the the is is marvel to how what a a line between him being kind of an antagonised forrest gump than to being genuine friends and aberration. All that kinda stuff plus. It's one of the cooler like triumphant beats like that they're out in this crazy store and they're the only fishing boat left that never shrimp and then like after. That trump was easy. There's this leg. Is this shrimp everywhere. This montage of them shrimping. And it's the line. I don't know if this song was out at the time it probably was. But there's a scene where he's trying to catch shrimp and he can't catch schrafft's says bubba tommy everything he knows about shrimp in. But you know what i found. I'm thinking all right please. Please let him say shrimp. And ain't easy come so close. He says shrimp and his tough man. If you remember that would that would have been hilarious. Brian also noticed the first time. Baba is going around vietnam with the Helmet because all the different shifts Written on it and grease paint or whatever his says i'd rather be shrimping he's crompton a jungles vietnam with the rifle shot at by charlie rather restricted man. Voyager bet his car at a bumper sticker on it said that too. I loved everything about i. Talk about this. And i started thinking about this movie. 'cause i for whatever reason i started watching clips of forrest gump but everything about him. Being in army the drill sergeant screaming and his face insane. He's a genius and like how bolivia's both him and bubba like the baba is like you know like the drill starts screaming and i interrupt his shrimp scampi speech and then as soon as he leaves off it's lightly anyway. You can also make gum. I i love those two characters and how perfect the are for each other and also like the the busing reprised. Ginny thing where he's like. You know people are like. I can't sit by meek and do this and the one guy had. This movie is super cute. In that way right the coincidences the to repeated scenarios as the ways that he gets into situations and the way. They connect the dots on his journey. It's very very cute. And in some places it's a little too cute for my taste. Only a couple giving example number. One thing that i think is too cute in this movie is him on the set of this talk show with john lennon. And he's asking him what's it like over in china and people are like and he says well the God nothing and john's is like no possessions. And then he gives him the second line of imagine and then he gives them the the and then the talk show host is like. I can't imagine that. And then john lennon's like it's easy if you try dick. This is too much. This is like i will grant you the watergate thing with nixon but you gotta take this out plus. It's not only to cuba. Makes john lennon. Looks like a massive asshole. Because he's gonna make it it. It doesn't feel sincere. It feels not just to keep. It also feels very fakey.

"The other thing that strikes me about that those early scenes Especially that opening scene where feather lands on him and puts it in his book in starts talking on a park bench. The the suit he's wearing. I don't know how they made such an ugly ill-fitting suit so iconic because when i see like a light cream color suit now of this style i think of forrest gump They they midst of the night. Didn't notice that they pointed side one of the articles. I read pointed this out that like every time they do at time jump. They always center it on tom. Hanks wearing kind of like some kind of cream colored outfit with that chequered. Blue periwinkle shirt. He's a little boy when he goes to like goes to high school football. When you go every single time they re him in that outfit and they add a coat too. I thought that was kind of a neat. But you're right it is iconic and it's only something like forrest gump can pull off tap ice cream suit with the periwinkle checker and the hideous worn out nights dow with like tube socks sport socks on the ways in the speaking. I wanna talk a little bit more. Gary sinise because like he's doing such a great performance in this got oscar nomination. But it's not just like the bulging but like there's a couple of light his line readings where like he's up legless and the crows nest and he's like that's where we'll find stripped by boy and he does a lot of things were like. I think we've come across shitty when he's kind of like making fun of forest or he's trying to joke forces too dumb to get the jokes explain it. There's a fine line. He's walking between being mean the forest. And i honestly i talked about this before we had a forest gump and our friend circle and it's always like it was. It was sometimes hard to walk the line between valuing their friendship and their humanity. And also just how fucking annoying they could be with with their with their handicaps. Especially as a young man as yeah. We were teenagers dealing with the you know But i thought like it is a deft touch. He had when those line like on the dock. Where he you know is talking about getting the sea legs and comes on. And he's like i know idiotic but dislike i. There's a part of it is when he's at his low point and he he sticks up for forest you know I dunno it's is the fact that you understand his anger right you understand. Did they make lieutenant. Dan of very sympathetic character in his own right And sympathetic in his anger. And i think you understand that. It's not directed at forest. It's directed at the universe. It's directed at dismiss destiny. Yay god is sometimes very literally directive..

"A nice through line and when you consider like how much you can tell about a person from their shoes which has line he says the beginning and the idea of like walking a mile and someone else issues that no Chestnut yeah you can sort of start to piece together like what you're supposed to get out of forrest gump how you're supposed to understand forest And put yourself in his shoes figuratively. And then i think it's also interesting. That lieutenant dan when we first meet him on the beach there in the camp. He's telling forest like here's a number one thing you gotta know about in the military being on this jungle. Take care feet where these specific socks. Don't let him get wet. He's concerned about the socks right but then he loses his fucking legs Didn't care enough about the shoes he was all about. The socks loses his legs. Come back and get magic. Legs just like forrest had when he was younger. I don't know what it saying. Exactly but the line was shoes in this movie. I was about to say this is dead. Man's brew but some are about two or three minutes ago. I think you talked me into it. Because you're right there. Something there some about him being concerned about this thing eating the legs off the g. is and then it does and then he gets a magic legs and that allows him unlock happiness and her free in from the destiny thought he was on. There's a lot of like destiny versus going with the flow. That's liable theme of this movie. Yeah yeah like and like tom. Hanks synthesize at the end. He's like you know who's riot. Mom or lieutenant dan whether we followed his destiny whether we're like a feather floating on the breeze and ended by that feather of course. Yeah because it is like if you are hell bent on doing some preconceived destiny like because that's what i was doing that like you know there. There's great montage of all his father's dying and all the wars of america. I love those little montages. Like bubbas. Mother's day and gary sinise face when he's away dad with his eyes bulged out it's great it's really fun. And just flopping like shot through the heart and his dad dying ditch ver- down or whatever but like until he was physically able to carry out that destiny. Then he started going with the flow. I guess i'll this damn shrimp boat. And i do this. And he led to himself. Have an appre. There is something like you can't surrender to fate or destiny but also it has its place to plan. I thought it's it's great because like the feathers soaring going and it lands on some guy shoulder. He brushes it off and go and finally lands a forest and he's the one that picks it up and does something with it and decide thing that's it. That's it's like it's all like you know movie Cinematic storytelling one. Oh one but i think that stuff really works because it is both like you have to have a plan but also you have to be prepared to take take life When the feather is in front of you you got.

"And like you know he said something that that's a great thing about the movie with forrest gump skating to say something profound and moving about vietnam and none of us can hear it. Did you see this what what tom. hanks said. the actual lines were no. I'm super curious. It's sometimes when people go to vietnam. They go home to their mommas without any legs. Sometimes they don't go home at all. That's a bad thing. That's all i have to say about that. Wow but that's what he said. Oh man i mean that's that's good. That's good that's true. Yeah i'll say this to me incessantly quote all the time is jimmy's boyfriend at the protest. This it's just a lot of times when we're apologizing for snapping at each other. We'll start like that. It's just this this war lying son of a bitch johnson also. I also really love forest gums. Fighting style launches in with both both fists piston eating every single time. He just he just flies out. You start putting searches like just like piston punches at the guy and i really like this is my favorite fight. Sequences number one. This guy has come. This guy is so fucking blowhard. He lays hands on genie. That's not cool. But i love. How like the black panther do like the panthers or cohen for the separate. And he's like on. Let whitey fight it out of ring. Watching these white guys beat up his out of each other at the black panthers headquarters. I love it. Love it can. I hit you. Missed a theory for what i think. The actual framework of this movie is okay. I think that this movie is all about shoes from from the very opening scene. Where four as you tell looking into somebody shoes then if you track forest journey through his life every i would say almost every if not every single phase of his life is marked by some distinctive type of shoe from cleats well from starting with his magic legs right as a child. Avenues leg braces to cleats. When he's a football star to army boots when he's in the military or combat boots when he's in the military Slippers when he's in the military hospital. I would say the only one i can't think for sure of type of shoe is like ping pong shoes. Elton specific pingpong trainers or some. He fought in his Gi issued slippers hospital slippers. He might he he he pong. Then you've got the running shoes later on right gene so the probably no shoes or or boat shoes. I dunno. I forgot about that. 'cause like i was thinking like when you're This theory is like there's a lot of like kind of meet the goddess Hero archetype energy because like shoes are often given to him by a woman. Important woman figure his mom gives them the magic shoes. Ginny gives him the nike that he runs across the country. In fact that's the thing. I noticed like i noticed new things when i watched this movie but like when they opened up. He's wearing those fucking nights. Yes those natty. Acid worn out thread bird that the ginny gave him to go meet ginny Because in his mind. That's like not the d. shoes are wildly inappropriate for me to wear but like that's something that ginny gave me and i want. I want her to know that. The i love her and thinks he's important touchstone for him. I know i like it..

She never takes you seriously. But she's always gonna take advantage of you and she needs some stability and support than than insult of insult. He's going to drop a kid on your doorstep right before she punches out on the planet. And like i can see how that's kinda horrifying but i don't think people consider from genius standpoint right one horrible child the holy shit like only protective blanket forrest. Gump's ignorance really. And that's that's very effective. How they use force comes naievety to kind of like soften some of that stuff like audience gets like what horrible shit that the genes going through. But the movie doesn't have to come out right and say it. And i think that's also why people get mad about the way handle some things like racism and civil rights stuff because that same kind of like cottigny gauze of his limited grasp is kind of smooths over that stuff too but i also think that like yeah. If you got the payload of what's going on the genie should also get the payload of what's going on. You know fucking governor. Wallace smell that ship but yeah she's she's got terrible childhood with no one to look out for her and she is a fully aware adult going into one of the most multiple times in american history. When she's on the right fucking stand of most things unfortunately she gets mixed up with drugs and some other stuff but yeah and also like from gene's perspective even if she love forest ones looked like to have a real like. I think there's a lot of the she kind of doesn't know what the morality and ethics of engaging in a relationship with a man like this you know she taking advantage of him came. You know like she says force. You don't even know what love is. And that's when the more effective through lines in the movie him. You know. I'm barbara smart managing it but i do know what love is like that works because i think both of the is that point realize the truth at words but like up in that point you know what is forest ginny like. She was a stand up front all throughout school. That very different lives. He went to vietnam. She went to protest. It like i. I felt i felt a lot more sympathetic. And at the end. I thought it's an act of love to put force together with his boy because forces about to be truly alone in the world With no in the care for knowing the love and we know how gets like that in the movies he might run for three or four years. Now he's got a child to to love and he's gonna take care of and I dunno i felt. I felt a lot sweeter like it didn't feel like she's casting him a burden. I mean what the fuck. He's a kazillionaire. Right he's got infinite resources Like i. I don't see like you know. Fuck ingenious dropping her aides baby off on forrest. Gump store doorstep. So i i. I see why people see that character and thinks she's terrible but like i didn't get it when i was watching this this this this version. Anything think it helps that they have jenny. And forrest become friends when they're very young. Because the potential exploitative side of that like if if for instance you know he had become a shrimp captain.

"Written about like how forrest gump kind of dim is a little bit helps the not not exactly whitewashing of us history but the nostalgic where you know you go back. Chai forrest gump's childhood and there and he's living in deep. South alabama is named after confederate soldier. Who formed the k. k. k. But for us to so oblivious to all this that like the first time he deals with racism is when they're trying to integrate alabama like there is no like i saw articles like try to find the whites only sign in greenville alabama. Gonna find it because again. That the it's the way that they cast the sixties and seventies is like a time of turmoil and confusion instead of like in history rightfully so that was You know there's a lot of there's a lot of crazy shit that needs to happen in our country both domestically and abroad and this was like a much needed course correction. It's kinda weird and ninety four to still pick like. Oh and you know. But i i. It's it's how you feel about. I guess what what baggage you're taking into the film. We wanna talk about because there is some of the all time. Great alternative casting. Okay.

"Rainman and dustin hoffman definitely obviously is playing autistic character but there are a lot of similarities. Right there's like right a certain way. The tom hanks moves in this movie. That makes you feel like it. The thing about this movie is i. I don't want the movie to ever make fun of forest for his intelligence or lack thereof. It does at times like his football coaches good example. Right like the boy. That boys is the some. I've ever seen but boy can run. Yeah that that is making fun of him but also he so competent he so capable that you never feel bad for forest in those moments right. You feel almost like you. People don't understand what this person is capable of. You feel like these people are the stupid ones because they don't see for it right. Yeah you can't one hundred percent. And the fact that like his mother from an early age built that kind of wall around him. The where like you know you're going to be talked about you but like don't listen to them. You know stupid is a stupid does like. I don't like sally fields. In a lot of stuff but i really thought and the the she kills it as as his mother and some of the formative experiences he has with ginny. And then the fact that like. That's something else about forest becomes his character like anyone that treats him with any kind of respect or normalcy. He just as they have the lifelong loyalty for better or worse yet. No baba jenny lieutenant. Dan his mother and I i don't know like. I said forrest gump isn't essentially. Just really good guy and he is it is it is weird. Because you're right it's like you know rainman. is institutionalized you know. He'd probably ma'am. I don't know maybe we talked about a lot of work that he could maybe have some kind of more independence than than he does. But like forrest. Gump is like the opposite. He's right where like clearly he's impaired. But you know not to go to the whole tropic thunder speech but demands war hero. He's a ping pong champion. Yeah he he's started a successful company like he's he's able to function and navigate and the real world but that's where we i think we need to describe what the movie is because i imagine a lot of people you know we're we're talking with the millennials and the zuma's maybe not as seen this movie and i don't want to think of it i don't you think about these. These are these are films made for our parents and their sensibilities and it might be a little bit too much but I liked to film. This film is about forrest. Gump he it starts from his early days as a kid He's got several things He's got some kind of leg disability. That makes them not be able to walk correctly. He's got very limited iq But his mother wants only the best for him demands that he has a quality education. And how those foundations lead him on an improbable series of it's making him College football star a war hero owner operator of company. weaving in and out of us history with president's From the like we sent you take him from the fifties to the late eighties.

"But god what a fun movie. I watched this because i couldn't sleep last night and i was my plan was to get up early and watch Forest do my research. I found myself. I just you know. It's like one thirty in the morning wideawake. I'm a. I'm a fucking. Jim and i was worried about me and i to be like but like i was. I was biz movie as we're wrapping up at five thirty in the morning. Mean tears blubbering amass on my Nah there's the seeing this movie at one o'clock in the morning does not dampen mind susan for it. I in fact. I think i wanna like when we get to the oscar debate. I want to say i'm going to. I think i'm going to be pro forrest. Gump think forrest gump rightfully won. The oscars all things considered and you can make their holy. It was nominated for a lot of oscar. That's the other thing is like there's one that's a little shakier but like forrest. Gump pulp fiction. People can have their favorites. But i don't think the one film is heads and shoulders above the other. I agree i. I would lean toward pulp fiction. I like it. More certainly It's more savory forrest gump very sweet yet for sure you know. I wouldn't say the forrest gump. Like stole the oscar from out from under like the clear. Best winner but right. It's a little complicated with shawshank redemption being this conversation. Because i think that's where the real if you want to say that movie guy robbed a forrest. Gump maybe because. I think everything forrest gump is doing trying to do. Shawshank probably does better in a more adult satisfying fashion. Certainly there's less than that schmaltz right less of that. Whatever it is over the top of this there are still veneer over the top of shawshank for sure. Oh yeah that yeah that magical realism almost sort of thing. But yes here is just. That's what this is one hundred percent. But i i like it i. I think this movie succeeds largely based on the personal charm of.

He was cast from a pizza hut commercial. So i think this is his first ever role but you know. He went on to later fame and the the sixth sense not too long after the spill jim i i saw forest. Gump i still in high school. And i've talked about this. Being of one of like you know my babies i Prestige film one of those. Pg thirteen movies. That the i. I've always loved tom. hanks And he was big in my young film appreciation and it kinda followed. His career was rarely. Let down this is a divisive film amongst people who like film. There's like fan of fifty percents of people think it's schmaltzy crap and there's fifty percent of people to think this is just one of the perfect films as ever made. There's oscar controversies about it. Which i'm sure we'll get into. But what is your experience with tom. Hanks with forrest. Gump what did you think of the movie. So i saw this. When i was in my mid teens i would say probably a few years after came out. It must have been on now. I mean it had to be very close to the time that it came out. But i would have only been twelve on this dropped. So maybe i was younger than i remember but My friends and i all saw it. And i know that.
What Could a College Football Super League Look Like?
"I wanna talk about the super league. Right to the super league takes over Soccer and for forty eight hours eight hours and now it's gone. It's a thing of the past. It was a nice wispy thing. It's like at the end of forrest. Gump it's a little feather. They just flies up and just goes away and then the super league is gone forever but it did cancer. The imagination is a pretty much fans of every other sport who came up with their own superleague for their sport. Now this happened a lot in college football as the lazy among us decided to just do a super league not me. I have the super. Oh kaley coming out. But so the super league proposed by andy staples he has. Let's see fifteen teams only team all right. Well there was only twelve. Or i think there's only twelve in the super league. Now they were gonna eventually get the twenty. they're starting with twelve broke alias. Twenty-five i liked this
10 Things Student Pilots Do Wrong
"What's up wally bobby. How are you doing great another week. Another episode we love doing these shows for. Y'all hopefully. You're enjoying them are. We've got a number of new five star reviews on itunes and other platforms. If you're enjoying the show please take time to Write us a review and if we should be doing something different or better don't hesitate to reach out and let us know that as well lots of good questions and ideas for the show coming in also and someone said something about Us covering some of the top mistakes that student pilots make and lo and behold. We found an article. And we're gonna we're gonna borrow this article and talk about our thoughts on some of these things in flight magazine. Which is the texaco flight. Training magazine from the ao pa. Still the one that i get imprint. I much enjoy it. has a lot of good things in it as a relates to flight training. So if you're not a member of the go register you'll get the magazine for free either imprint of electronic but way back in january of two thousand eighteen There was an article written ten things ten mistakes. That student pilots do wrong. And we're going to talk about those while the examiner. I know you see a lot of things that go wrong. let's jump right in. We've we've done some of these topics but we'll we'll go through all ten of them. What's number ten number ten pertains to checklists and lonely appalled. We have done a An episode on the usage It is something that is required to be graded or or evaluated. Rather i should say on a check ride Pretty much on on all the landings. All all the takeoffs and everything down there in in One of the elements that i'm supposed to be looking at as proper use of checklists and You know it's pretty simple. If if you don't use a checklist you're obviously not properly using it. So i see Occasionally on on check. Rides that that applicants. Are you know especially for our landing checklist. They're just using gump's and they're going through it and they're going through their mind. But there's not a checklist anywhere close And that's that's really a bad habit pattern I and i know Maybe a cessna one seventy two especially a fuel injected one where carburetor heat is not Introduced to the the scenario. There's really not a whole lot to do As far as landing. You know as far as Checklist items But it's it's a habit pattern it something that is required and it something expected When you get a job plan a big airplane especially at an airline. Checklists are are used. They're used every time You know. I fly big airplanes and some of our checklists. Only have three items on them. And i have a memorized. But i still pull out the checklist and i look at it and i read it and i i respond to it appropriately so it is a big item. You know you're not gonna fly the same airplane all the time. You may fly. An airplane now has cal flaps. You may be flying. Fuel injected one seventy two. And you're used to that but today you're flying an end model and you've got carburetor so you got carburetor heat to be considered and that's all on the checklist Landing lights Just just everything. That's on the checklist is it's there for for a reason so you know it's something that that We we need to do better with you. And i think as a student pilot when i was training you i did get lulled into this fact that i'm flying saint planes. They don't the school when i was going here. Only had one seventy two. So i was always flying a one. Seventy two all tricycle fixed gear aircraft. You could get lulled into that. But i've flown a lot of different types of aircraft. Now and if i only thought of those items on one seventy two n p models than if i did like you said flu anything else that i could get myself in trouble or hurt pretty quick right so number. Nine on. This list is poor weather. Planning i find that to be something that I find myself chasing people down talking about on a regular basis at the flight. School people learning how to fly. They wanna go. They wanna go And they just i don't. I don't think as much as we talk about it. I still don't think students understand. The dangers of what weather can do to us. And that weather as europe pilot and you fly weather is not necessarily the same three or four miles from here. We can see here. Might not be what. What's going on three or four miles away And it's it's shocking. I think i've told the story of trying to fly to brenham to see my dad. Not that far away didn't do a weather briefing or really understand all about the weather. Pass this airport and get out there and be a wall of clouds just five or ten miles away and have to do you know quote unquote a holding pattern out there for for a thirty minute time. They would burn off but they never burned off. And i wasted a lot of gaffes in a lot of my time Trying to get somewhere. That i could have solved for that. If i would've just looked at the weather

The Story of Auld Lang Syne
"Well when this time of year rolls around you probably will hear one song and one song in particular seemingly over and over again. Quick note here. I was listening to my christmas traditional songs. And i kept hearing it. But what song am i talking about. Well i just told you old. Elaine sign it does have a rather big nostalgia meaning to it and along with it here in the united states. A bit of sadness and usually marks an emotional scene or we action. The song. old lang sign was originally written in scottish. When taken apart and put back together again. An- actually means old long sense and is translated yet again to mean all times sake or for the sake of old times this song that is mostly sung and means the emotional conclusion to another year. And don't we need that. It also means that one must remember people from their past and raise a toast to them. Originally it was written many many years ago as a scottish celebration song. Old lang zayn is actually a scottish language. Written by robert burns in seventeen eighty eight and set to the tune of a traditional folk song. But did you know that. In the netherlands. It is a soccer anthem and in japan. It is a song about firefly's and and south korea. It was the national anthem until nineteen forty eight. It is known as being easily adaptable and mostly all musical styles. That is why it is so cool but at its core it is well known and many countries especially in the english speaking world. It's traditional use. Being to bid farewell to the old year at the stroke of midnight on new year's eve it is also sung at funerals graduations and as a farewell or ending to other asians the international scouting movement in many countries uses it to close jamborees and other functions and a little note here when i was watching the crown on netflix day. Sung it when they said goodbye to the prime minister. Certainly most of us know the song old lang zayn but to quote from the first stanza of the english version of the james watson ballad. Here it goes should be aware since be forgot and never thought upon the flames of love extinguished and fully past and gone is thy sweetheart now grown so cold that loving breast of nine the thou cast never once reflect on old lang zayn in scotland. It is common practice that everyone joins hands with the person next to them. To form a great circle around the dance floor at the beginning of the last verse. Everyone crosses their arms across their breast so that the right hand reaches out to the neighbor on the left side and vice versa win the tune ends everyone rushes to the middle while still holding hands when the circle is re established everyone turns under the arms to end up facing outward with hands still joined in countries other than scotland. The hands are often crossed from the beginning of the song at variance with scottish custom. And did you know. The scottish practice was demonstrated by queen elizabeth second at the millennium dome celebrations for the year. Two thousand some press outlets berated her for not properly crossing her arms. She was unaware that she was incorrectly. Following the scottish tradition and because of its easy tune and melody it was also used as a song to signify for the war to end having the title. I wish the war was over and it was a popular anti-slavery song entitled fling out. The anti slavery flag both were using old anxiety as the basis for those songs. If you listen closely you can hear the song all lang sign and many movies too. Well did you know that these movies are we willie winkle a nineteen thirty seven. Shirley temple movie when her character sings to console a dying soldier. Mr smith goes to washington the nineteen thirty nine movie. Ocean's eleven the original of nineteen sixty as background music and the poseidon adventure one of my favorites that was made in nineteen seventy two ghostbusters and nineteen eighty nine. When harry met sally in nineteen eighty nine as well forrest gump in nineteen ninety four and elf and two thousand and three and most notably the very last song that is in the movie. It's a wonderful life with jimmy stewart. It is after all probably the best feel good ending in a classic movie ever with plenty of emotion for the main character at the last scene of the movie which brings george bailey the main character to tears as he acknowledges how great life really is and it is always at the stroke of midnight composer guy lombardi would play it on the radio and continued the tradition for fifty years afterwards. Dick clark took it up to play at the stroke of midnight on. Dick clark's new year's rocking eve. Every year and new york city as the big ball dropped at the stroke of midnight but after dick clark retired from the show ryan. Seacrest did the same at the stroke of midnight every year. They all had something in common with playing the song. It was an remembrance of those that came before and at the same time to mark the new year. All the fans and celebrators would sing along to the classic song so this year twenty twenty when the clock strikes. Twelve a m sing along to this classic song. Even if you don't know all the words we are indeed saying goodbye to twenty twenty

This $4.6 Million Tournament Got DDOSD
"Much like the Overwatch League. The call of duty league continued its inaugural season online despite the cove nineteen outbreak. This past weekend marked its first ever playoff matches. We're talking like the biggest event, the biggest prize pool in cody history. On the ultimate driven grounds co look duties delete convert. Dead moment stares you in the face join no one. Rolling isn't. Skipping. Over is easy. is taking. But as things got underway while the some issues, the cod community had to deal with something. They're actually not that unfamiliar with going back to the days of advanced warfare, pro play online de Dos, attacks, and mid match booting of pro players basically because the games were being played on locking hackers would go in Diaz attack and boot Appro player from a live game at the highest level of play out there. This was pretty crazy and in the optic versus Ellie guerrillas it actually got so bad that optic at the sub in a different player because Kenny had been booted multiple times already in the match. Yeah. They all I, it looks like Kenny no longer in the in the server. So something happened there. So they're trying to do this four versus five right now. When did he try? It's been about over a minute and as you might imagine, the pro community was pissed obviously the competitive integrity of the Games are being called into question and pros were asking for things like postponing the event or boycotting entirely a really long time ago in a land when dinosaur a whirlwind when dinosaurs roamed the earth advanced warfare was a game and in that, there was an online lead and hitting people off line was an issue so much. So to the point where the league had to be restarted because it was impossible to avoid everyone's getting hit off. Again, and this has become an issue to the point where now it's impacting four million dollar tournament. This tournament has more than four million dollar prize by far the biggest payout in the history of call of duty. So for me, those frustrated tweets are seeing while they kind of make sense at minimum from twitter reports alone at least five players had this problem literal Diaz attacks in the middle of the playoffs. Now, luckily, for optic, the example I showed above didn't cost them the match but many players have speculated if they were playing against any team other than the lonely L. A. Guerrillas. It could have been a different story, fig it close it out here saucer PGA. Thanks saint flasks man he's been spotted broth and TJ. Trading there is big telezapper optic they're gonNA, get this series win. So you're activision blizzard you're putting the situation in the middle of the biggest tournament of all time in your brand new league in the middle of a global pandemic. What are you doing? Well, they're quick fix actually ended up being to start the matches off walk that way these attackers couldn't get to the players live many players also started to scramble their Ip addresses to make it even more difficult. So they made that change and everything was fine. Until it was on. August twenty first, the third day of playoff competition fans started to notice that scores were updating on the coal duty League playoff website before the matches had actually started on St keep in mind, I? Didn't tell anybody they were making this change. So as far as fans were concerned, these matches were being played lot. So when the Chicago Huntsman were playing the New York subway liners and fans could see the results of the first two maps before the game even started onstream people were a little confused and it's obviously awkward. If you're a fan right, you don't just want to. See The score you WanNa see the game and it gets even more awkward when you gambling to the mix this change was made pretty quickly. They didn't exactly have time to let Vegas now. So for a short while you could bet on a game while already knowing the results of the first babs, what's more is that some of the players being targeted by the DOS attacks. In the first place suggested that those might also be related to betty. You see the League was hosting a special perfect bracket challenge that awarded a hundred thousand dollars to anybody that had a perfect bracket all the way through the play offs similar to what you know. They do with March madness in college basketball, the bracket challenge coupled with the fact that all these attacks were. Happening on hard point, a type of match where in the rules, it's very difficult to replay them make this all very sketchy fear a hacker playing this bracket challenge and you want to make your hundred thousand dollars you go and you target your Diaz attacks towards hard point. So you can actually influence the results of those matches, its one, hundred, Fifty, seven points they passed that threshold. To basically this is to you know Kinda kind of. Levy in issues of it happens like the start of the game is really early in a game and you know somebody's played without unfortunately in this particular circumstance, it happens. Happens a bit deeper but yeah, Joe it sucks there's no way around that. No Way to hide from that few. Guys right now like I said off the top booting and Diaz attacks have been a problem multiple times in the history of cod online pro. So. It's baffling to me that this is even allowed to happen in the first place now, betting controversies and Diaz attacks. Aside, this weekend of coal beauty was miraculously able to survive the controversies time Sunday rolled around and teams were competing for their slot in next weekend's talk for matches. Fans were fucking pumped for some call of duty action and a lot of that has to do with Sunday's match that pitted the new off the gaming against the Chicago hunts, which aside from being a highly anticipated series with to good teams have the added drama of pitting obviously the old face of objects gump against an organization that is in many ways shell of its former self and what ensued was a five match bloodbath that peaked at more than a hundred and fifty thousand viewers on Youtube that some people are calling one of the best matches in call of duty history?

Maria Town: Disability Rights Are LGBTQ+ Rights
"Disability looks like so many things right, and in fact over one third of the Lgbtq community, house disability, so if you don't have one, absolutely have a friend or loved one does, and you'll hear Maria. Today disability is not a sign of weakness is a sign of strength, resilience and survival. So, let's get to it. This is Maria town. Know preparing for this interview I was thinking about all the different aspects of queer life, or or should I say my queer life because I was specifically thinking about how not accessible they are yeah, and one of the biggest and most visible examples I think is pride, fried celebrations, and I'm just curious about what is in your experience with pride. Pride is interesting. The idea of walking in a parade is very exclusive for a lot of people. There is always biased towards being able to physically show up and watch or debate in a parade that I think our experience with Corona virus may change I hope that various pride committees and organizations across the country are actually thinking about virtual engagement in subsequent years, and how that can be a complement to in-person engagements, but there's all of the events that surround pride typically in June, that often revolve around alcohol and substance abuse in tree, then is a disability having pride so closely tied to alcohol companies creates a lack of access for a lot of people in. In Our community I've never thought about that is alcoholism is classified as disability to be specific it's it's addiction in treatment, so if you are actively experiencing alcoholism and not seeking treatment than it wouldn't fall into disability, you know that's what the law says I. Think we can look at addiction more broadly as as a disability. Ask something that does impact someone's activities of daily living in their ability to accomplish them. You know for someone who is seeking treatment for addiction. They are entitled to reasonable accommodations in their job. If they need a flexible work schedule, so they can go to a meeting. All of those fit under the umbrella of reasonable accommodations the ADA. Issue that I wish more people in the community understood and were open about new sort of diction falls within the ADA, the American disability act or I guess If you're currently in treatment, right I, think people in the queer community knew so many people in treatment. Is that a Bra Lee known thing that you are legally able to ask you like work for time off to go to meetings and stuff so I don't think it is I think that most people's understanding of disability is fairly narrow, and that's very unfortunate the disability. Disability. Community is huge. It's extremely diverse and I think most people when they think of disability, even people within the community. If they haven't had an opportunity to really get to know the disability rights community, maybe think about disability in terms of someone who uses a wheelchair or someone who is blind, but in fact disability covers. You know people who have cancer people who have AIDS HIV. It's a really really broad category. In fact, so broad that people with disabilities are the largest minority group in the United States, and there are one billion. Billion people with disabilities around the world, those numbers are crazy especially, since on on this podcast, we talk about representation all the time, mainly for Queer people in the media, but we think about representation for those at disabilities, if the numbers are so small, if as you said, it is the largest minority group on even with representations right like we are so as a community, so accustomed to seeing disabled characters, being played by non disabled actors, like what's the easiest way to win an Oscar have able bodied person play somebody with a disability. Disability right like Daniel. Day Lewis in my left foot. Shirley's there on in Monster Forrest gump all Oscar winners, all non-disabled people playing people with disabilities I think when we talk about representation, it can't just be like disabled characters. It needs to be disabled riders writing the stories that needs to be production, the whole kit and caboodle,
How to Sell to Crack Into All the Government Spending
"I hope found this company called gump spin we help companies Celta government. We actually help. Government DO BUSINESS WITH COMPANIES. We kinda work on both sides of the street. I started my career in the DC area actually started my career as a civilian working for the navy so actually helped government process. Actually something unique. I actually helped sell F. Eighteen fighter jets two. Us Navy into some international Countries at that point really grew that experiencing to last twenty five years really helping again companies either. Sell the government or helping the governor of process extreme line Spent most of my career and currently of a suitable Proto virus time. You know we have been exploding. It certainly very hot topic while the money. The government's putting into spending by the only the only illumination spending more money here currently so we really the knicks just exploding less of a week. So what does government spend? Do exactly sure so a governor. We wish started many years ago. Ten years ago I had a prior company. We saw with the laptops. The police cars are sold to the government that was my most recent gates selling directly to the government and during that time for a of times you can sell the government. Sometimes the process doesn't make sense right. You're like why did he do man what happened but we found out. It's like the old saying years ago. Follow the money right and so what we started do. At the end of that company we started to gather the purchase orders from government agencies. Work with what we found as we started to gather that for our own company it was super insightful. So for example. Hey if you saw company work with a company nine. A few solid agency weren't company for nine straight year nine or ten straight years. The chances you're gonNA come in and displace them is really small. If you saw an agency use a new vendor every two years of a much better shot at that contract right makes total sense but we as outsiders. We don't know that when we were doing business so reason I'll tell you that would go spend started to do many many years ago. Is We gather all the purchase orders from government agencies? We GO GOVERNMENT TO EIGHT GOVERNMENT AGENCY GOVERNMENT AGENCY FEDERAL STATE LOCAL. Gather all their purchase orders. And we put in this online database or folks can query just like Google. You sell widgets you can go online. It's it's amazing you can see. Every government agency buys a widget. You could see who they're buying from and what they pay. It is eating in the world of kind of government sales. So that's where we started. We blossomed into a variety of things. But that's the core of what Gulf spend does super unique patented by US. Just amazing ride last several years at. And how do you process all those purchase orders and what form do you? GimMe GonNa pdf format or you can imagine. It's all over the map rights and there's ninety thousand plus government agencies. I would say like I'm in a room with people. Say Write Down Your name address. Telephone number social security number. You know some of the information if I asked ten people do what they all do it differently right at all someone ready to on the line somewhat stacking someone put their own over the Franchisee. Someone's issues dashes someone as a commander with ninety thousand government agencies. They all do it completely different. So one of the things that makes us turn and burn a proprietary piece of software. We get the foul from government agencies. They come in every format you name it from Seattle electronically try to obviously get digital. And so we have a piece of software similar to ingest that information it's able to Parse it out and then we put it up in our database with make aquarium on about twenty four hours. So it's it's a huge set of data. It's about you folks a sense. It's about two hundred fifty times the size of Wikipedia. So it's a normal database but that's the thing that makes churning Burns's piece of software in about ten years so I see from your history. You sold the company to lexis-nexis this sounds a lot like what Lexis nexis does for lawyers through. It's really interesting. That was some of the impotence of this solution so we were again. We were at the time selling the public safety agencies again. We have this mostly substance. They have a laptop car life. A ten point fifteen years ago. That was very very unique so we help that marketing. Kinda grow right prior to that kind of singing. Hey how does this data and make it more scalable? How DO WE HELP? More people use it because we were we kind of use it in our own functioning of our company. That's exactly what we're looking at the net lexus. Next model how they use the data and kind of use that insurance where the government market so very very announce
Don Tamaki on Stop Repeating History
"Is the background? And the purpose and the goal of the Stop Repeating history campaign that you are a Parv well as the listeners know in one thousand nine hundred eighty two almost one hundred twenty thousand Americans of Japanese ancestry were removed on the say so of the government alone and put in in American style concentration camps three individuals charged the challenge government in that process. Read Komatsu Gordon Arabiya. She and Menu Suey. And those cases were heard in nineteen forty three and forty four and the Supreme Court to their surprise ruled against them and those cases stood for almost thirty seven years for the proposition that without trial without evidence entire racial group. Lose your freedom. Their property and be imprisoned indefinitely by accident thirty seven years later in the nineteen eighties of secret intelligence reports from the army the navy the FBI were found. They surfaced all of which admitted japanese-americans Americans oppose no threat in he committed no wrong and Department of Justice lawyers urging their higher ups basically to tell the truth and not lied to the US Supreme Court and on that basis. We assembled hey legal team to represent all three lead against I was on the legal team representing Redcar. Matsu and based on that evidence of misconduct really abusive power lies in order to manipulate. The of those cases of Fred Karma sues a criminal conviction for Divine. The military orders were overturned and In separate actions the convictions of coordinator beyond Xinmin Yasui and the legal team basically educated the public about what happened when trump announced his travel ban in January twenty. Seventeen we reconvene these legal teams In order to to work with the quarterbacks who center in Seattle and the law firm of Aken Gump to represent the adult children of Fred. Komatsu Corden here beyond Menu. Sui Basically make brief was to remind the court that When they when the court stood down and did not ask questions and accepted the government's claim that doing this Drastic separation civil liberties made the nation safer. It was a civil liberties disaster. So we filed amicus brief Basically to urge the court to examine whether the travel ban Really made the nation safer or in fact was merely fulfillment by trump campaign. Promise that he made repeatedly on the campaign trail down the borders to Muslims and American families of entering the country. Saturday in two thousand eighteen. The court has upheld the travel ban. Five four but we had launched a public education campaign called stop repeating history in order to also inform the public. What had happened and that it ought not to be repeated so I love to hear what your thought is in your whole team. Start when you saw. The travel ban announced his clearly. You being intimately involved in the overturning of the Coronado to indicated by Ashi end the convictions node. The history in intimately well. What kind of parallels did you see that in your mind in your team's mind Signaled the fact that the travel ban against Muslims and a lot of refugees as well is literally in your organization's word repeating history. We were enormously disappointed and angered by. The court's decision was cited by five to four majority. So there was a divided and we thought it was an opportunity for the court to once and for all reverse in truth. Komatsu versus the United States. Judge Chief Justice Roberts did provide lip service have met decision basically saying the core mottes who was wrong. The day was decided but in the same breath join the majority polling the travel ban which in our mind reinforced the worst and most dangerous aspects of Karma swoop versus the United States which was when the executive branch the president invokes. National Security. Courts will stand down. They'll abdicate their traditional constitutional role of being a check and balance on the presidency. And the problem with that is when you have an executive branch which is gone rogue and would certainly happened in nineteen forty two and it's happening now. It opens the door for tremendous abuse of power in the lesson of monsoon. Is that when there is no check and balance The temptation for political leaders to Fabricate facts to misrepresent Epa evidence in order to manipulate the outcome of in this case Major Supreme Court cases that temptation becomes irresistible and the founders of this country certainly understood that every high school civics students knows that we have three branches of government. We have executive branch the Presidency the legislative branch. Which is Congress and the judiciary the cords? Each are coequal each. You're supposed to be a check and balance on the other and the genius of the system was it was really designed to thwart the rise of kings in tyrants and when those systems fail as they did for Japanese Americans. This is how dictators get started. You have in this case of President. Exercising unfettered power and the consequences are severe. You have children being separated from their parents. You have a president who targets minorities whether they be immigrants muslim-serb refugees and the latest attacks are on Asian American specifically Chinese Americans by labeling a global pandemic as a quote Chinese virus and institutions are supposed to be check and balance on that kind of abuse and we see history repeating itself all over again. I want to dive in a little bit. Into the point you made about Fabricating Facts to litigate in front of Supreme Court which is pretty mind boggling for everyday citizens to even contemplate you know we generally hold the Supreme Court to pretty high esteem is the highest core of the land is the final. I call or final decider on a lot of highly controversial disputed issues but to your point people or government in this case in particular actually lied to the Supreme Court to get their position one. And you have a lot of experience with that in the overturning of the quartermaster case. I think that is essentially. What you your team discovered that lets you even the possibility that you could overturn the Supreme Court case which again too many people's minds that is the final decision right when the Supreme Court says something whether you decide whether you agree with it or not it is done but of course they are edge cases and exceptions to that. Could you tell us about? Maybe your experience overturning. The Komatsu case will was the discovery of that. Were the lies that were discovered that. Lets you guys even being able to do this? And then of course tying to what we are experiencing right now whether it's the Muslim ban or potentially other offer things can happen in the future. While thirty seven years after the fact the Supreme Court cases decided Komatsu here she knew. Sui In nineteen forty three and forty four thirty seven years after that secret intelligence reports were discovered by accident by researchers Peter Irons and Heiko Yoshinaga hurt sick. Which really all that. The government in order to manipulate the outcome of these landmark Supreme Court cases fabricated evidence and even burn them and despite the protestations of Department of Justice official soon attorneys who urged their superiors that they ought not to be lying to the Supreme Court to clarify. We did not over earned the decision. What happened was basically Before nearby she in ministry five the orders for this bass removal. They were charged and convicted with Criminal violations and Suffered criminal penalties and we reopen these cases. A writ of error was the only device reopen these ancient cases. That would've otherwise been time. Barred by this limitation isn't criminal writ calls rhetoric quorum notice which allows litigation to reopen their case to clear their name and doesn't give them any money as and give back the years that they lost. They can remove their criminal. Convictions we won on those. The government appealed their loss and then they withdrew their appeal in our system. Only the loser can appeal not the winner and so the the withdrawal of the appeal was a very strategic. Move to keep it out of the. Us Supreme Court And only the court supreme court can reverse itself now when the trump versus quiet case came up in twenty eighteen. That was an opportunity for the court squarely. Look at the facts Komatsu because there were very similar to the travel ban and actually reverse it reverse that case and sadly the court didn't take that

Ravi Gump Kamal is the author of love. Yourself like your life depends on it. He's meditated with monks in Himalayas. We got to hear about that served as a army. Infantry soldier and Co founded several companies and venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. Come all. I've been looking forward to this interview. Thanks for coming on the PODCAST. Thanks for having me man. I kick off with a quote that I came across years ago and I just thought perfect when I was giving your book by Gideon Gideon while Harper Winer. Yeah When he had mentioned you and then another mutual friend mentioned it and I started flipping through the book. I thought of this quote by CS Lewis. Success hardships prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary life interesting. That's going and while he was a wise man he was a wise man so I want to kick it off by starting from the beginning. You Open Up Your Book and you talk about in two thousand eleven. The company that you spent three years of your life building and all of your money went under set the stage for us at the beginning. Okay so the the genus. This book is actually. This is not a book. Set out to write. You know that people like I'm going to write this book. This was never a book to write. It came out of an experience. That was very transformative for me where I've been in Silicon Valley building startups building companies at Dunwell and the last company. I was building At self-funded if over three and a half years and then took on funding. Because I'd run out of money you know. Billing tech companies not cheap right for for years and And the whole thing blew up and I lost everything you know which in hindsight you you remember. I remember now. Look Ninety something percent star tech startups fail but when is yours and all your money you ego your personality is self worth all of us wrapped up in it. I I it. Blew up on with it and and I was in a really dark place and you know the other things happening in life to at the time it was almost like we had like Salami. I'll just happened at the same time and I was in a very dark place in one night. I just was like okay. I can't do this anymore. I gotta get out of this place or die trying. I cannot be here and and it was like this this intense moment of like saying. I can't do this anymore. Can't be here anymore in this place. This does this darkness depression. Whatever you WANNA call it and I walked over to my journal and my on my desk and I wrote down something to myself I and I you know you should write notes to myself but this this time. Something from somewhere deep I wrote a vow to myself and it was a vow Listen the book You know I'm GonNa Paraphrase but it was avowed alum myself and I don't know where that came from. I wasn't sitting on thinking you know what I need. Another makeup news failed. I need to love myself that I wasn't thinking that at all. I don't know whether we came from like somewhere. Deep Right. It was like one of those pure moments of life. We just come through something deep. I did recognize that. And it was a vow as a full on commitment to myself. And so I'm a big believer keeping your commitments that you made from the heart and this was a pure from the heart to myself and so I had to keep it except I didn't know how and said okay. I'm GonNa work on this. I started because I nothing else to do. My Company of failed. I lost everything of living credit cards and I was trying to figure out what to do next and so I just started like trying things in my head because that's the only thing I control the only control I really had was if I was if I was not happy verbs in my mind the only control ahead was will work on my mind as I started. Just do things to my mind and started trying things and I found. Things are starting to make me shift to make me feel better. And if they worked I went deeper if it stopped working through. I didn't care all I wanted was one result was to get out of this place and so avoid by following that almost like a decision tree of things that are working out working and going deeper deeper. I came up with like a simple practice doing every day and I was just getting better and better. Better my take a better in my life started getting better and this didn't take long. It took weeks if most right and it was it was. I'd never ever knew that was possible to go from that kind of darkness to like almost like light. And so you know it's like when you discover something in life that's really transformative. The next thing. Is you become like newly converted your friends. Who are going through stuff. I would tell them like Lara Dude. Like don't worry. I figured out here I would write little things because while I'll be building companies in Silicon Valley. I'd also been training myself to write literary fiction. I wanted to be write novels right. So I've done the ten thousand hours. I knew how to write someone. Just right up little things and sent to them like little almost a couple of word a couple of pages worth like. Here's what I did. Here's what I went through here. Do this right. I would do this for friends and because it gets tiring having to explain again again because people ask questions adding them again. It gets here. Let me just write it that I could share the same people. I mean different people and it started it worked for them because it's like a simple simple stuff. There's nothing complicated. Have to stand on your head and scratch your. You know like do anything to say. Just little stuff you're doing inside your head beer. And they had all the time any day she'll things that when and we'll get to all that and we'll break it all down but foundational things. That seem so simple that we often overlook. Well look ultimately. If you look at anything in life you look at Art. You look at writing. You look at Physics math anything. Simplicity's where it's all the if the closer to break it down to the basics the very very fundamental basics and simplicity is transformation happens you know especially for us as human beings. We don't need to know complicated stuff. We will not practice it. We need simple stuff that we can do consistently and I was talking with every time. I ritual you know talking yesterday and like was the Diet Best Diet I think the best I can keep consistently was the best fitness program. The one that you can keep consistently you know not the one that you do once a month you know and same thing with the mind. What is the best way for mindset the simplest most effective that you can do consistently and I was in a place where all I wanted was results? I didn't care about theory. I didn't care about Does it make me feel half better. I just wanted to get out over was right so I wanNA come back to your story because a company failing isn't event right and even the word failure is our story on it like you wanted anyway. I was totally in that story right. You're in that story. So you talked about this valley that you made to love yourself but let's go back and set the stage a little better. Because I think that a lot of listeners our podcast might be able to identify it. Identify with it. So what were you doing? You had a situation. You had an intended outcome. It didn't work out. It wasn't what you wanted. But what was the story that you created around it? And where were you at that time that you were doing the opposite of loving yourself while? I was a typical Entrepreneur story in the sense. Like look I didn't take even a Sunday off over three and a half years I think no near the end. My team convinced mutate. Start taking Sunday's off right. I was so obsessed. I was going to pull this off. My entire sense of self was wrapped up. All my money was wrapped up in it and it was coming close to be successful. So my ego was wrapped up in it I WANNA blew up. You know I I took it personally. You know which which is normal. But it's also kind of silly because I gave it my all. You know it's not like a didn't work my butt off you know But it was like the whole story of failure and also I was just. I was worn out. I was sick There are other things happening my life that would result just like a cascade effect of just being bottom and one of the things. I tell people as like look.

The 2020 Virus Crash, the world is shutting down, keep healthy, cheer up, we will beat this
"Lots of change of course since the last time you were with me on the show as after news for you wonder what will make you very happy. United. I know. You don't fly united but if you were to fly again united as asked cabin crew to controlling to dimming windows of the liner essentially say allow the passengers do whatever they want these goal. I mean I understand why they dim them at certain points of a flight on mass. So the whole cabinet atmosphere changes especially when it's supposed to be time to to sleep what? I get frustrated by than when they're locked that's what management that it has to do not lock the system. Essentially I wonder if they're able to restrict the DIM nece. So if you say you can. They're unlocked but they can't be fully open which I would kind of understand. That would certainly a piece people like me. But that's interesting that they've had such volume of feedback that they've made that change exactly or they just listened to layovers. That's that's more likely exactly the second news I hinted at it in the intro did about you is that. Berlin seems to be happening actually happening because thunder as actually scheduled flights on October thirty first. Which is the opening. Apparently the soft opening date for a full opening November eighth. It's pretty unbelievable. You set yourself that you were not believing and I wasn't believing it either but it seems stupid will open I. I don't know why it is changed times. It's interesting. There is a third party setting a date for their moving as opposed to the airport authority or anybody on behalf of the airport saying this is going to be the open day. It's it's an airline saying this is when we're going to shift and it's all their operation right. It's not it's not just a test. It's this is when we're GONNA start flying out of that airport and remember when we did both of the airports of berlin-tegel and Schoenfeld lift as it doesn't fly there. They send eurowings. I mean does Fi of course but I'm wondering now if we will actually have proper operations as Frankfurt in they don't they don't really so far so I I still cannot believe it. I mean I don't watch. I just can't believe that he's going to happen. And you know we running Joe too was was going to arrive. I Will Italia Fail I. It seems that they will never fail. Will the Max Awry? I A berliner. After these two are still in contention the Mexico to arrive before Berlin. I duNNo. It's very because with strange times. We'RE LIVING. I don't lie about answer window. So there on office and depends on Crete where you sit and Jeez. I want to give up to Andrew. Curran is a writer for a site that we both read quite often called simple flying and so quoted us like mentioned us which is very nice. Exactly that okay. Because we were saying like who's going to be I you know the Max or and well. He said that we did. Put our money onto Max coming. I was still have a shot of that Andrew. You're basing northern New South Wales in Australia. I I'll show her friends will maybe having a strap. Is it coming up at some point this year? Maybe maybe so into you will have it. His favourite airline is a Singapore Airlines. Here you have very taste I was gonNA say fair enough. I'm just wondering what's Your airport. Because you say northern New South Wales Brisbane is probably close to you. But that's already Queensland believe so which one is it Andrew? Just reach out to us and thank you for for listening. And since I'm on simple flying they also have a podcast. It's a very cool podcast as well. Everybody's doing podcasts Alex. We're we're the okay boomers podcast now because we're like the og in like everybody does podcast. It's very close. The I think they started like early. Feb they also have like these kinds of thirty minutes once a week. Type of Schedule which is really cool for those who don't want to listen to US venture for two hours every odd weeks that we we. Do we do this? So simple flying. You can find it on apple podcasts and everywhere and this is Super Cool Bravo guys. Congratulations more the merrier. Since we're talking about okay boomer of Aggie podcasts. Ourselves to reviews I on apple podcasts. Five stars thank you. The title is where has this? Been all my life from BIG CASTS. Eleven from the. Us These guys are awesome. Content is always amazing. Well thank you so much. They really open up the world to people through their travels. I'm not traveling and personal experiences. I love their personalities. Spot guests is great for any AV geeks such as myself or someone who loves travel. Thank you so much and the second one is from already in MS ready in MSP. Of course Minneapolis which we now covered as you heard. Alex great details on Global Airlines Five Stars Great Show. I always enjoy your shows and look forward to the next one is interesting to hear where you have been and the airlines. You flown on question receive people. I love it that people use reviews. Us question looking at booking a trip to Rome on American Airlines with miles and seem to be able to get much better rate if I had to stop in either Madrid on you barrier or London. Nba would you recommend this? And if so which city in our line? Well Man Rudy going to Rome today not sure. I don't think that here experience. If you quite what you hoped it would be the. What would you do for when if all this stops because Italy for those? Who Don't keep track of isn't a full lockdown. So I mean I know that Ryan ourselves fly Suzanne set from Rome but besides that I think no one flies there. Would you if you weren't? Us would you fly direct with a? Would you prefer a barrier via Madrid? I know our love for Narnia and or we e throw with. I don't know the long haul product. I don't really know the shorthaul product either so I don't know but between the two I would still go a in premium an above but be a in economy. Yeah and if you really want to stop so meaning if as out of the question be. I think it's still a better choice in because you will not be changing terminal in Saudi throw. You'll be fine. Yeah passing so I. I know some people might disagree. But and it's not that we don't pay you better. I think the whole product I've done because I've done to Madrid three forty I think. Yeah it's okay. There's ochre like looking at each other as the be a business for instance but it's it's okay. I think still better. So how's your flu Alex? Well just waiting for the inevitable. I can't do this all any of us can do anything. Yeah exactly it's it's so strange man. Up China Eastern has introduced a new coronavirus glass. Oh on top of visas. Glass preemies coronavirus. The last three row after starboard side off their aircraft will be reserved for those who show potential signs of sickness. Now it's not called the coronavirus. Plus that's me actually making that up but they are actually segregating a bit of the aircraft for people that might have signs of sickness. I I don't know how it works but yeah people that develop the symptoms during the flight. Surely you shouldn't be traveling if you already have this and maybe an epidemiologist would be able to tell us if this is complete waste of time it feels like a complete waste of time. Yeah I said in my very long intro in the previous episode I'm sorry guys it was thirty minutes of renting that Yeah you should be flying if you if you're sick even James Von for crying out loud is my God. I'm like I'm so unhappy about that. That was you. Were not traveling. At least seeing James Bond like a month would have been called but no we don't even get get oil. You can't go. I mean people are not supposed to the movie theater anyway. That's what we're doing right now. Alex Social Distance. What exactly I don't know man. I I think I have a lot less apocalyptic view than this or more A. There's very little I can do about it. That's true however I think that's that's very true. I'm being mindful as not being panicky and I. I see people being panicky. I think that I mean we'll come to that. Actually know what planes it becoming the safest place for social distancing because they're at and the prices are dropping some of the. I mean I think what we see on. Social media is the extreme cases where there's four people on a flight to wherever it may be but the data is now emerging to that showing that these these flights are tanking. And you know now. These reports are coming out. That airlines are running virgin. Nba running empty flights. Just to keep the slots alive gump to that. Yeah Yeah it's not. I mean I think it was of all of the industries that could suffer the most initially. Who knows what the future holds travel and particularly airlines. We're going to be the ones that got hit

How to Tell When It's Time to Splurge
"In our day jobs. We get to help folks make financial decisions and a lot. The top people equate that to like how save more build wealth. How do this thing but we talk about all the time? One of our favorite things to do is to be that voice reason that tells tells people when they can take their foot off the pedal where they can actually enjoy some of the fruits of their labor. We just did a show. That's always were to the show ideas. Come from what we just on that show. We're I I was very self confessional about the fact that I'm no longer consider myself a tight. What now if you were attending the livestream I still have a lot of tightwad tendencies? I just can't get those out of my system but it is one of those things where I love it when we talked about this in pre show planning we are now that you unleashed windy. We tell clients that they could actually spend. When do we tell people we're going to be able to that? Ought to be a show. When do we actually get to live like no one else? We hear these things. You're saving saving saving but Wendy. When do you start to put that needle over to? It's okay and give yourself permission. Because that's the biggest thing one of the favourite parts of being financial advisor. Here's the negative. You have to tell people. They're spending too much but there is a huge positive. Actually for a lot of our clients is that they've been so good at accumulating assets. They actually have a hard time. Tom Breaking the habit of building that we tell them. It's okay to start consuming contrite and I love it when we get to break that point to them I think one of the common misnomers that people have is that oh well that happens at retirement or that happens at the financial independence. Were actually going to talk to you today. About not only. Does it happen there. But they're actually times throughout your accumulation accumulation journey throughout your building journey. Where you can give yourself the freedom even if you're young even if you're early on even if you're in the beginning stages where it's okay to spin so long asks you're doing the things you're supposed to do so let's jump right into these and I was so excited about this slide? And here's the first slide is is foosteps are followed by the way. Here's what I think is awesome. I'd like to tell you my entire life is very. I can't say Mr Magoo because I just gotten to be so old forrest gump might very well become. It's kind of getting everyone recognize but I do feel like I m the accidental success story on most things and once again I've stumbled into something awesome is that we've been talking about for years. Financial Order of operations. I mean it is one of the if I call it money guy won a one. You want to understand financial order of operations. One of our. I came here it was youtube or podcast world but money got family members said we love the foosteps house. Like Oh oh my gosh. This is one step closer today Grohl because it is because when I do all this stuff completely by accident I'm like this means that Dave Grohl on are meant to be best friends. Ah I mean it really is a son that we're supposed to thunder Dave. If you're listening we'd love to have you on the show. So let's talk about this because I do WanNa talk about well. Financial Order of operations. This is one of those things and we're going to go much deeper in this. I've got some things in the works even late last night I was working on some ideas with his financial order of operations and I wanted to kind of go through this rather quickly and we know that we have other resources in the past that people can look into but this is when we talk about financial order of operations. But let's go through these pretty quickly and science sign number. One is not that you've completed it but that you are following the steps correctly and so in order to know if you're following the steps correctly you have to actually know what the steps are so step number one of the money orders. Operations is the deductibles covered You WanNa make sure that you have that money set aside that can get you out of the ditch if things things are going haywire you at least have enough to cover health insurance deductibles auto deductibles homeowners deductibles whatever's required. If there were a catastrophic event you have it there to get you out of the pitch this is where you know most people we know the stats. I'M GONNA cover it in a minute. Most people can't come up with a thousand dollars. So you're right. This is just to keep you from the danger. He's home. You have a really yarn poppin bottles on number one. This is just like I said to keep this thing from running aground and remember because I don't think I set up the the the financial order of operations. What makes this so foundational? Is that just like we talk about time. We think a lot of finances very math. Based I mean matter of fact people get onto onto they say no behavior behavior. Well Yeah we get the behavior but if you're not taking if you're neglecting the maths or you are doing this thing all wrong and that's why we just spoke. Oh could a group of structural engineers. We got hard to come up and talk about that. In the first thing we did was we showed him a math equation. That had exponents in it. It had parentheses it had multiplication tables had division had some subtraction and addition and we ask them we said how in the world did you guys know how to do this and and they all were able to say you know I was ordered. Operation is us which was an always. Screw this up but it's like please excuse my dear aunt sally you nailed it see. That's the first time I've ever heard you get it right so but it's the same thing so I wanted to give the context so that everybody understood. Why is this so powerful finances finances is the same as the way you do order of operations with math? You need to do it in the right order so you actually make your system as efficient as
