He's in the space steering committee. He is one of if not the best music publicist of all time. How're you doing today. And thank you. How wonderfully especially meeting you guys. So far you've been lighting up that yes absolutely. I'm saddik a super static. So i mean there's so much to get into it you because we i i was telling you before we start it. I i watched your documentary. The grand unified theory power bloom and it was a i feel like it didn't portray enough folk. How amazing your life actually is and how much you've actually a done in your lifetime like in. Your outlook on life is is so it. it spoke to me. I'm just gonna say this. I really wish i was a mere. That's that is fabulous. Because that's what i live for. You know when. I was ten years old. I was the least wanna trial in my hometown of buffalo new york. My parents had no emotional interest in no time for me and other kids loathe me. Despise me. I was only useful when you wanted somebody whose hat you grab and throw back and forth over his head and humiliated or throw his book bag into a pile of dog shit or chase me around the block. I was good as a target. But i wasn't accepted as a kid and one day i was sitting in my family's big living room and i there was a on my lap. Now the weird thing is when you're ten years old you know the location of every single book your parents own because none of those books has changed its place since you came to consciousness and this is a book i had never seen before. I have no idea where it came from. And i opened it up. And it said the first two rules of scientists these the truth at any price including the price of your life and gave the example of galilee. I wanna told the story all wrong etc galileo. It'd be willing to go to the stake. In order to defend his through their eve later. I would discover that wasn't brew but nonetheless i needed the heroic vision and roll number two science. Look at things right under our noses if you've never seen before and then proceed from there. Look at things that you and everybody around you take for granted things that are invisible to you and flush them into visibility and then proceed from there and gave the example of anton von lewin. Hope the guy who invented the microscope and all of a sudden. I had a reason to be on this planet. Sudden group playmates. Who could not reject me. Why because the anton von hope Albert einstein still alive at that point but the major heroes a science. These guys will reach out and saving my life. We're saving over a distance of three hundred and fifty years. And if i wanted to tag around with them they could not say no because they were dead to look at it so so that left me with an obligation if they had given me a purpose in life then my job was reach out over three hundred and fifty years to find the next four than fuse kid and give him or her a sense of purpose. So that's the obligation. I've been stuck with emission. That these two guys conferred on me. And i've been working at with all my heart and soul ever since you definitely achieved that because in in the time the but by the time i was done with.

"The morning america. This is the cats roundtable trump katzman. Tv here sunday morning. And what's going on in our country. Well freedom speech which ways right as wrong. We still have the constitution. Then we still have the first amendment. The missa show we get all opinions with this morning is howard bloom. A well known democratic. He's an author. A publicist top. Music artists He also worked with prince and billie joe and is very big in science Good morning howard. How are you john. It's wonderful to see you again and you also have a new book. I understand einstein. Michael jackson and mia search for soul in the power fits of rock and roll. And it's about my adventures with michael jackson. Prince bob marley bette midler. Acdc aerosmith spleen. Dmc people like that. Billy joel billy idol. Paul simon peter. Gabriel david byrne New star in wabc. Because in brucie's borrow causing mercy is one of the kindest most generous man on the face of planet earth to use the word of my tribe. He is a mench. he's one guy. I listen to music and it brings you back to the the great years in great is He's he's terrific and to have to be involved with the legends. Like that is astonishing. Well how we have a problem in the country. And i like to know european. You're entitled to your opinion. It's good all the american people would know the first amendment and the freedom of the press all of a sudden that we have unregulated companies like google and instagram that they control and facebook and twitter. That they're trying to control the news. That's being received by the american people. What say you about that well. Freedom of the press fought for all my life. I went toe-to-toe off against tipper gore and susan baker. the wife of the vice president The future vice president and the wife of one of the most powerful men in washington back in the nineteen eighties to save freed of a breast. But i don't think that the picture that we're getting a freedom of the press is entirely accurate Wmd claims that are wmd's a major conservative source Complaints that an endless stream of conservative christian pro-life organizations have been banished censored shadow banned the monetize by big tech and mainstream social media platforms. But it's not entirely true. It is harder to find News from sources like newsmax or a n on a google search. But the fact is that the most read posts on facebook every day or overwhelmingly from conservative sources from trump fox and Conservative commentator dan bongino. what's more twitter. Is the home of the trump family. Donald trump is one has one of the greatest. Twitter feeds of all time on twitter. Then there's Malania and donald trump junior Leira ivanka kaley mcinerney. Not to mention mitch. Mcconnell they're all on twitter and you would think that putting warnings which is what twitter has been doing when there's this material and says this material is disputed now that's not censorship it is adding label. And what does that label do. Well it turns out that.

But I had a book here in somebody has obviously purloined mock. Well. That's a good thing that means somebody's off reading it somewhere. I. Guess. Well. Speaking of the books you can go to right to Howard's website, which is Howard Bloom that net and get the links to Amazon, where where they are directly from his website. All of books are listed there, and if you click on the picture of the book, it's GonNa. Take exactly the way you can buy it on Amazon and I hope you very closely film. The grand unified theory of Howard Bloom Sixty minute film. It has won best picture at the Design Science Film Festival in California, and it's won best documentary feature at the Film Festival in Italy, and of course, Einstein Michael Jackson power bits of rock and roll has been named the number one book of the year, the best book of the year by The New York, Weekly Times on the La Weekly. I can't wait to read that and I'm I'm really intrigued to find out exactly what the linkages in their between Einstein Michael Jackson and you but I'll bet to me don't spoil it. Isn't just a is it something that some laymen tope somebody with no science background could maybe a Blah follow along and understand this or they'd be over one when I write these books to be sub delicious. You can't put them down. And I mean the God problem, which is one of the most complex of my box James Burke the creator of seven different series for the BBC. Including connections, which is absolutely brilliant. Sad it's a cliffhanger Now can you imagine that of scientific buckets cliffhanger? He said it's like the flying will end is doing a dance on a tight rope over Niagara Falls. So I write these books to be delicious and hopefully they are right I agree about the guy I've read one and it is It is a compelling book. It's one that you wanted us once you start reading basically GonNa, consume you till you done. You're, not, GONNA be able to put it down You know you're not gonNA be able to go to work. You'RE GONNA call in sick so you can read more. But but. When I think of when you talking about, you know beyond all that how a a godless universe creates itself when you get into the stuff about teaching for soul in power pits of rock and roll I just wondering how is that too heavy for some people to understand basics of of beat. Or read it. People have read. It have said even if you're not interested in music that this is a major American it's classic. One person comparative to they said, are all the works of world literature in any way comparable to this unto verse sleeping of him to say and basically said it's paged her So again, as you said about the problem once you pick it up, can't put it down until you've reached the end..

But not good not good like Brooklyn, right now, who can tell? Your childhood tastes better. Are you frustrated with the The state of.

I'm the man who leads the pack basically the to to the greatest extent possible bright. Now, the world is run by a bunch of bullies or part of a common packs and the leader of the pack is Latimer Putin. Vladimir Putin is not stupid other people in the pack may be stupid or imitated him, but he is not stupid. Am I disappointed with what's going on in America Day our current president?

If he had been smart and had done what more dry in the president of South Korea did President of South Korea soon as he saw this pandemic comic. Called in the heads of his major biotech on his and said, I, want you guys to drop everything or doing and focused on tests for the new corona virus and I want you to mass produce those tasks, and if you run into any regulatory problems are solved them for you. You have a crash mandate here. So they started testing everybody in the country and isolating every single person who was carrying the new virus. and. There was contact tracing the make sure they found everybody else who might be carrying the virus results is that South Korea as of last week had a total of three hundred and ten corona, virus. As of tomorrow or Monday we will have had two hundred thousand. recessed. That's twice as much as all of the flu deaths.

"Dark Times. The journey of our lives can have some quite scenic parts. Would you agree? It can have intriguing turns hills and some scenes that quite honestly, we'd like to forget that we saw now most of you know that I love movies particularly those containing timeless quotes. In one of the last lines of the movie Ferris Buehler's Day off Matthew Broderick's character says. Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look once in a while you could miss it. I truly believe my special guest has experienced quite an amazing journey thus far he is an author of such interesting books as how I accidentally started the sixties and the genius of the beasts. He was the publicist for legend. I'm telling you legends like Michael Jackson, Prince that mettler John Mellencamp, and so much more. He's a scientist having found three international scientific groups among other things in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, he became struck with chronic fatigue syndrome confined to his home, but stayed hard at work writing books making virtual appearances more. I can go on and on, but I rather suggests that we hear it straight from gentleman himself. It gives me great pleasure to introduce Mister Howard Bloom Howard..

"Your latest book is titled. Einstein Michael Jackson and me a search for soul in the power of rock and roll. What was the inspiration behind you decision to write the book? Well? First of all I got out of the music industry in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, and I got out because I became well first of all I needed to get rowdy. Through writing my purse book and I was stealing time early in the morning to write the book back to my days of writing early in the morning and I'd have written it, and then I came down with a really serious illness Emmy Matt Mild. Chicken steph alumni a slash chronic fatigue syndrome, and it was so vicious illness that for five years to eat talk I couldn't utter a syllable, and for five years I was two weeks. Now have another person in the room with me. That allowed me Tha. I had ended my curiosities with rock and roll. I answered all the questions that I had wanted to answer so when I was offered you to. As a client I wasn't the least bit interested about never cared for their music when I was offered, Mick Jagger as a client wasn't the least bit interested. You know I have questions. But when you were successful in something, especially, if you're a legend and apparently I was a legend. Your wife has never going to let you out ever. Because, you represent status in Europe is money and yet. I needed to go back to my science and start writing books. And the illness gave me an excuse to go for music and what I needed to do, which is returning to my science and writing books? You can imagine what it's like to be a rock and roll legend. And to try to reestablish your credentials in science when nobody remembers what you were doing, the age of ten twelve and sixteen, so establishing my credentials and science is going to be very hard while it took a long time, but I have now been published, and or given, lectures at scholarly conferences and twelve fields for quantum physics cosmology to evolutionary biology neuroscience information science bio politics. Governance at Sarah Aerospace. I've covered an awful lot of fields, which is no no science person that I know has managed to be taken seriously in that number of fields, so I reestablished my credentials and one day I was at Mel's diner on Sunset Boulevard in La with my friend. Eric Gardner who used to manage the chef or used to be a road manager for the Cat Persson starship, and then was the manager for Todd Rundgren Paul, Shaffer, and a whole, an timothy, leary and a whole bunch of people like. Like that and I was telling him stories from my rock and roll days, and his jaw dropped, and he said you've got to write a book about this. And finally I felt sufficiently comfortable that my science credentials have been reestablished the finally. Get around to writing this book, but this book is not just the story of some astonishing people, Einstein. Michael Jackson me a surface all the power of rock and roll. The new book has the experience of finding the souls of people like Michael Jackson. Prince Bob Marley Bette Midler Billy Joel Paul Simon Peter, Gabriel. David Byrne people like that. It's a series of adventures and people. Tell me that even if you're not the least bit interested in music, it's a page Turner and Kanter Your Life, which is about the best thing that you could say about a book if we can talk about Michael for a second, know that you've described Michael Jackson has the most incredible present, even Matt. What was it like first hand to work with him? One of the stories that you must remember from time working with Michael. Well I'll tell you. What first of all when I got into science at the age of ten, it was because appeared in my lap, and my parents big living room, and it said the first two rules of science, or these the truth at any price, including the price of your life, and look at things were under your noses. If you've never seen before and then proceed from there, the first law is the. The law courage and the second law. I look at things under your noses. If you've never seen before, and then proceed from there is the law of awe wonder, curiosity and surprise Michael Jackson was the living incarnation of those first two rules of science. I never expected to see from I. Never Expect to see any human being the quality of commitment and the quality of wonder. Michael had to give you an example. The first time I met Michael Jackson We were out of Merlin Jackson's poolhouse poolhouse, little building next to the swimming. Well, it's just big enough to have one room on the first floor and one room on the second floor and the room. The walls are studded with arcade game machines, which nobody can afford you know pacman and things like that. And in the center of the room is a billiard table. And the brothers and I were all crowded. They were kind enough to put me at the middle and flak me on either side, and we were looking at t shirts and jackets, and I was trying to explain to them. You try to put on one of the most amazing shows. Anybody's ever seen that means you're t-shirts have to be amazing. That means you're tour draft amazing everything who sell has to be amazing as we were discussing this, I heard the screen door open. A new much was coming and again remember. I didn't grow up with other kids, so I didn't know normal human rituals. But when I was nineteen, somebody tried to teach me that somebody is entering the room that other people want you to meet you. Walk up to them. Put your hand out and say hi. I'm and fill in the blank with your name and the other person will say hi I'm and we will Leblanc with his name or earning so I'd never done it before James, but when I heard the screen door opening, I walked over and I. You understand something I've written I'd read a thousand articles of Michael Jackson Stack of articles that I and every single one of them said Michael Jackson is a bubble baby, so if you put your hand up to him, he withdrawing fear. So I, put my hand out, and I said Hi. I'm Howard and the person coming through the screen door, said hi I'm Michael and we had a perfectly normal handshake, a little lighter than many handshakes certainly wasn't trying to crush me and show home he was, but it was a normal friendly human handshake, and I said look. I've got a press release that I need to get your approval on. And where can I read it to you? And he said well. Let's go up the stairs to the Roman lists. Four the room on the second floor with stacked floor to ceiling with amplifiers and keyboards, so Michael found ample fire to sit on. I found ample fire to Saddam. and. I started to read Michael This story. Now something you have to realize. I'd been obsessed with poetry since I was something like fourteen years old when I was at Nyu in undergraduate school, the poet in residence thought I would be the next. Great poets come out of Nyu, and he kidnapped me to edit something I didn't want to edit it all literary magazine and I, turned it into an experimental graphic sandwich or seen, and we want to national academy of Poets, prices so my writing, and remember Albert Einstein told me you have to be a brilliant writer. Since I was twelve years old so for me, writing was not just a hack proposition. It was the most intense of my arts. So I, read the first two sentences, so Michael and Michael Win. Oh. And I read the next two sentences like Lynn Oh. Oh, slumping ever further in his seat until finally said. Did you write that? That's beautiful. No one had ever seen all of the art hidden in a simple press release before, and no one has ever seen it since the only person who ever saw it was Michael Jackson. Wow, then we went downstairs and there was a meeting with the art director from CBS. Now remember I had jumped ship from I four graduate fellowships in Neuro Science by starting art studio with the artists that I had recruited for this magazine that I turned in to an experimental graphic San Literary magazine and.

The new book has the experience of finding the souls of people like Michael Jackson. Prince Bob Marley Bette Midler Billy Joel Paul Simon Peter, Gabriel. David Byrne people like that. It's a series of adventures and people. Tell me that even if you're not the least bit interested in music, it's a page Turner and Kanter Your Life, which is about the best thing that you could say about a book if we can talk about Michael for a second, know that you've described Michael Jackson has the most incredible present, even Matt. What was it like first hand to work with him? One of the stories that you must remember from time working with Michael. Well I'll tell you. What first of all when I got into science at the age of ten, it was because appeared in my lap, and my parents big living room, and it said the first two rules of science, or these the truth at any price, including the price of your life, and look at things were under your noses. If you've never seen before and then proceed from there, the first law is the. The law courage and the second law. I look at things under your noses. If you've never seen before, and then proceed from there is the law of awe wonder, curiosity and surprise Michael Jackson was the living incarnation of those first two rules of science. I never expected to see from I. Never Expect to see any human being the quality of commitment and the quality of wonder. Michael had to give you an example. The first time I met Michael Jackson We were out of Merlin Jackson's poolhouse poolhouse, little building next to the swimming. Well, it's just big enough to have one room on the first floor and one room on the second floor and the room. The walls are studded with arcade game machines, which nobody can afford you know pacman and things like that. And in the center of the room is a billiard table. And the brothers and I were all crowded. They were kind enough to put me at the middle and flak me on either side, and we were looking at t shirts and jackets, and I was trying to explain to them. You try to put on one of the most amazing shows. Anybody's ever seen that means you're t-shirts have to be amazing. That means you're tour draft amazing everything who sell has to be amazing as we were discussing this, I heard the screen door open. A new much was coming and again remember. I didn't grow up with other kids, so I didn't know normal human rituals. But when I was nineteen, somebody tried to teach me that somebody is entering the room that other people want you to meet you. Walk up to them. Put your hand out and say hi. I'm and fill in the blank with your name and the other person will say hi I'm and we will Leblanc with his name or earning so I'd never done it before James, but when I heard the screen door opening, I walked over and I. You understand something I've written I'd read a thousand articles of Michael Jackson Stack of articles that I and every single one of them said Michael Jackson is a bubble baby, so if you put your hand up to him, he withdrawing fear. So I, put my hand out, and I said Hi. I'm Howard and the person coming through the screen door, said hi I'm Michael and we had a perfectly normal handshake, a little lighter than many handshakes certainly wasn't trying to crush me and show home he was, but it was a normal friendly human handshake, and I said look. I've got a press release that I need to get your approval on. And where can I read it to you? And he said well. Let's go up the stairs to the Roman lists. Four the room on the second floor with stacked floor to ceiling with amplifiers and keyboards, so Michael found ample fire to sit on. I found ample fire to Saddam. and. I started to read Michael This story. Now something you have to realize. I'd been obsessed with poetry since I was something like fourteen years old when I was at Nyu in undergraduate school, the poet in residence thought I would be the next. Great poets come out of Nyu, and he kidnapped me to edit something I didn't want to edit it all literary magazine and I, turned it into an experimental graphic sandwich or seen, and we want to national academy of Poets, prices so my writing, and remember Albert Einstein told me you have to be a brilliant writer. Since I was twelve years old so for me, writing was not just a hack proposition. It was the most intense of my arts. So I, read the first two sentences, so Michael and Michael Win. Oh. And I read the next two sentences like Lynn Oh. Oh, slumping ever further in his seat until finally said. Did you write that? That's beautiful. No one had ever seen all of the art hidden in a simple press release before, and no one has ever seen it since the only person who ever saw it was Michael Jackson. Wow, then we went downstairs and there was a meeting with the art director from CBS. Now remember I had jumped ship from I four graduate fellowships in Neuro Science by starting art studio with the artists that I had recruited for this magazine that I turned in to an experimental graphic San Literary magazine and.

"I'd never anticipated being in the real world. Everybody who I'd a college professor from the time I was ten so i. I thought about that and I said okay, and I called a couple of my friends from the magazines that I've written for and and I said how much should I ask for it? They said tell me what you do now I have replaced to people when I had become editor of the magazine and when I left the magazine, they had to hire five people to replace me so I explained what I did and. And they said well, you should get a sixty percent records so I came to my publisher. And I told him to raise that I wanted, and he stood no I can't afford that. And I gave him six months notice and I wrote a fifty seven page book, and how to write the magazine on how to turn up a magazine and I trained I found him a really really good writer and I trained him. Him To be editor and I needed a job and one day the editor had hired so said there's somebody wants you to me. And he introduced me Seymour Stein the guy who would eventually found who bind Madonna the founder of sire records, and Seymour had me hired by golfing, Western, this giant conglomerate to found a public urged relations department for there's teen record companies, and and that's how I got into Pr, I knew. Knew nothing about it, except that I was on the receiving end of phone calls from public and I could see what worked. What didn't work, which was extremely helpful so very my own PR firm and abundance of SEAMER, Stein's clients left with me. Are Renaissance in the climax blues band to you probably never heard of, but they were. They were very good, and then I threw some people. I've gotten to know in the. The music industry I got Z. Top, who were the most hated band in north, America the village voice, one of the most influential magazines that point or newspapers in north. America said quote, they have a sound like hammered ship at Belco. Western, we have this record company called paramount records, it was one of our fourteen record companies, and if paramount signed something, you knew it was never going to go anywhere, so they had. They had a talent scout and one day he walked into my office and he had the usual spiel and this time it was a thirteen year old girl from Crown, Heights, in Brooklyn leaves talking about, but he said something that that meant I could not possibly forget about it. He said I've got doing it showcase at the Plaza Hotel tomorrow at noon. Well, the plaza. Hotel was a five minute walk from my office. So I had to go there and see her, and we in this nightclub sat up and all of a sudden this four foot, eight inch squash, looking African, American thirteen-year-old, walks out on the stage and the minute she walks founder stage. There's ferocity in the air. You have never felt before, and it feels like she's grabbed you by the esophagus and put your nose up the hers and his singing directly in to your face. It was Stahnke Shing. And so the next day during the time I was at the company. We had zero staff meetings. We were given zero sense of direction which for me, James was perfect. That I could do whatever the fuck I wanted to do. We had another. One where we were part of Buffalo, West had an extremely successful film. Company called paramount pictures, and it was run by this little five foot, four inch Titan, whose reputation we had heard it was like take ten Napoleon's football together into one human, and you've got this guy who ran paramount pictures and paramount pictures went to the people who ran off. Western said Look that that candy. Ass Little Record Company that you own. It's losing you money. If you make it report to me, I will make it make money. One day we walked in the room, was ablaze with light, and we were told we were having a staff meeting. Watch a staff meeting. We'd never staff meeting before. So we walked in for the staff meeting and our president started to clear his throat he was six foot to try was at the head of the table and started talking about how we have to save money on pencils and yellow pads because we're losing money and all of a sudden, it felt like behind us at the door. A thousand laser beams said gone off a hundred trumpeters were trumpeting, rolling on a cloud, filled with thunder, there came a man, and that man as he walked through the door, and what down the length of that table, our president, who was six foot four, when this all started shrank, and shrank, shrank and shrank until he eat until you look five foot two. And then he slipped off his chair like jellyfish into the chair next door, and the five foot, four inch franken lawns, the man of thunder and lightning bolts. Took over the head of the table, and he looked at the list, and it was the list of records that none of us had ever heard of before in our lives, and he looked at record number one, and he looked at department head number one to his left, and he said you. What are you doing about? This record and department had I had heard about bullshitting oral exams, but I. I had never seen it now. I saw for the first time I. Like this Guy Spun a story so detailed so gleaming that it sounded utterly and completely convincing, unless you knew like I did, but the guy never heard the record before in his life, and wasn't think about finally got to me, and I stood up and I said Mr you blondes I'm not doing anything about this record. In fact I'm not doing anything about any of the records on this list. They all come from companies so cereal that we don't even have the phone numbers for the president's of these record companies, but yesterday I saw, and then I described him. What happened when I saw this tiny little thirteen year old from Crown Heights and he listened to what I have to say. He didn't say a word. He went silent. He simply walked out of the room well as we. We were crowding through the doorway, the vice president over I had grabbed my right arm so hard that I had the marks of his fingers for a week on my Bicep Lau any, said you fucking none if you ever do that again, your fire and I got to my office in my secretary with standing there waiting for me to come, and she said you got a call from Mr Blah's office. Mr Good Blondes was the president of paramount pictures. He says he has. All of his department heads tomorrow at noon. He wants you there and he wants Stephanie Mills. They're Stephanie.

"Hey. Thanks for tuning in this episode. You really shouldn't have just a quick warning to say. The following episode does contain some strong language, which some listeners may find offensive thanks and enjoy the episode. Palo welcome to you really shouldn't have my guest. This week is legendary rock and roll PR executive Howard blame. Howard help build sustain the careers of some of the biggest names in music, including Michael Jackson prints of molly that mid luck Billie Joe Gabriel ACDC Aerosmith Queen Kiss run DMC and Shack Account, I'm just the name of. His most recent publication Einstein Michael Jackson me. A search for sold in the pits of rock and roll has led to number one on Amazon's chart of bestselling music business books. We sat down to discuss. He's a nominal career and also find out the worst gift he's ever been given. Howard thanks for joining me on the show that I really great to have you. Know pleasure now before dominating the world of Public Relations in the rock and roll business, I understand that science was your first passion very early age well. I was least likely person ever to get involved with music. Yes, I got involved in microbiology and theoretical physics at the age of twelve I accumulated my scientific credentials when I was twelve years old I. I Co design, a computer science. Fair awards built my first BOOLEAN Algebra machine. I sat down with the head for the graduate physics. Department of the University of Buffalo, my hometown university and we debated Big Bang versus steady state theory of the universe in the interpretation of the Doppler shift, and my mom bless her arranged for me to be given tutoring, and outside the box science by the guy who was the head of research and development, but the company made the valves for the first. First plane to break the sound barrier and the first plane to reach the edge of space, so you would never have expected that I would get involved with music plus when I was given violin lessons one day I was standing in my living room, trying to saw out some piece of what had formerly been music before I got my hands on it in front of the second violinist of the Buffalo. Buffalo Philharmonic, the Guy My mother had recruited to teach me and all of a sudden I saw fist, the size of my head, coming across my windscreen, and so I'd hit the Violin, and the violin flew fifteen feet across the room to the velvet drapes on the other side of the room, and fortunately fell on the crumple. Velvet at the bottom wasn't damaged i. then decided that I really wanted to get. Get into jazz and so I enrolled for a trombone class in my eighth grade, class and grammar school, and within two weeks I was thrown out of the class, so I was a total musical incompetent. All I could do was put six records on a turntable at once on the old fashioned spindles, the record players had and listen to them nonstop for three hours. That was the only yellow had in music. And how the transition from science to public relations happen, how did that come about? I stumbled into something when I was twelve i. a girl turned her is in my direction, and she which never happened James just never happened, and then she made contact, which was even worse thoroughly, and she said I told my mother the You understand three relativity all. I didn't understand the theory relatively, but I wasn't going to confess that. Be Humiliated so I jumped on my bicycle and broke to the local library when the when school was over and said give. Give me everything you've got on. Relative in the librarians knew me better than my water dating went through the stacks and found two books was a great big fat book filled with Equations Almost little skinny book well I tried to make it through the big bat up eight, o'clock at night realized that at ten mother was GonNa put me to sleep, and if I didn't understand the three relatively by then I was going to be in big trouble. humiliated the next day at school, so I turned to the little, skinny and in little skinny book. It was Albert Einstein reached out through the pages of Look Raby, Bible. Appel puertas nose up to mine and said SCHMUCK LISTEN UP. If you WANNA be genius, it's not enough to come up with a theory. The only seven men in the world can understand to be genius who have to be able to come up with that theory, and then expresses it so clearly that anyone with a high school education and reasonable grievance. Elgin's can understand it numbers. Albert is time through. The pages of a book. Told me you WANNA. Be An original scientific thinker. You'RE GONNA have to be a writer, not just any writer you're gonNA have to be a terrific smash, astonishing delicious writer, so those are marching orders so. Eventually, I had I had fellowships at four graduate schools in now called Neuro Science, and and I was up against his very bleak possibility, if I went to Grad school I would never get a chance to look for the gods inside. If you paper and Pencil test is twenty, who college students in exchange for psychology credit. How many gods you gonNA, see moving like spontaneous bonfires from. From the souls of these twenty two people, zero none you will never see a god inside in your life and your entire career, and that him outlook acceptable to me, so I jumped ship and Co founded a commercial art studio, and used it as a periscope physician, and and try, and and got well managed to become a contributing editor, a couple of magazines which was doing the. The Einstein of you know doing what he'd said about. Writing I was getting up at six a little morning, going to this giant remington manual typewriter typing until eight, o'clock going into the art studio, and then coming home, and sitting there with a pot of coffee typing again until eleven o'clock at night, and it was getting wearying, I was getting tired and somebody at a parapsychology conference. Conference you know mind, readers and spoon and stuff like that came up to me and saw that I had a pat in my hand, and I was busily taking notes, everything figured I was a journalist and said Would you like to add a magazine and I thought wow, if I entered a magazine then I don't have to get up at six in the morning to right. I can write during the day so I, said, yes, and in those days we didn't. He gave me an appointment with the publisher. The magazine in those days there was no ghouls hurt. Is that is to imagine so we could look up who you were having an appointment with. There was no way to figure out what the point. What was it about except that it was about a magazine and when I walked into the. The publisher's office turned out to the magazine about something I didn't know about called Rock and roll, and that's basically how I got into the rock and roll business so eventually when so I double, the circulation of that magazine and check flip one of the Founding Editors Rolling Stone credited with me with found me with founding an entirely new magazine Genre, the heavy metal magazine and his graduate thesis which was a history. History of Rock, journalism and and my boss came to me my publisher after a year and a half and said. Don't you think it's about time that you ask for a raise well, James.

"And me and wait till we get into it and just a few minutes so our let's finish up talking about Howard bloom in who this guy is well it two stories you happen now we left off with me clinging to the door frame of a blue Fraser one parents tried to drag me up the street by my ankles and I had just realized like laziest so for me there were no god in the heavens and there were no guards under the earth and yet there were gods in this scene they were in the passion that drove my parents to take their firstborn son and subject him to sacrifice on the sidewalks in order to get him to the synagogue and I had a sudden realization that Galileo work his magic by turning on the lands up to the sky and Anton van loon hope the inventor of the microscope work his magic by turning his lens downward at pond water and I had to turn the lens inward because the gods work in my parents they were in the absolute passion and conviction with my which my parents were trying to hold me up to the synagogue and if those gods were inside of them then those gods were alive inside of me and I needed as one of my scientific quest to find those gods to experience them to the full and to try to explain and there is one other circumstance that was remarkable when I was sixteen years old I have been voted the head of the program committee and my high school two years in a row I was wildly unpopular in that high school they voted me the head of the program committee because nobody else wanted the task we had school assemblies every morning before I went to class and I program to them and I am seed all five of them for weeks and one day the juniors came to me and they said we're holding it down could you advertise it for snow George remember I was not popular in buffalo New York so if there was a dancer party of any kind I was usually invited to park myself as far away from that stance as possible they didn't understand the irony but nonetheless I put a record on the turntable and they went up on the stage to dance now I cannot dance my current to sent me to dance class for a year in the hope of turning me normal and it didn't work by the way were you bullied as a kid oh absolutely Jennison power spent my childhood no child should have to go through that now no child should but there's a certain advantage of being an outsider so I went on the stage I cannot do the foxtrot I cannot do the box that I cannot do the waltz any of the things they tried to teach me so when I danced it look like a Looney tune was the twist going on at that time ago twitch chubby checker's points I don't think it went on until about nineteen sixty one so this is pretty the choice okay but I got up on stage and it's something you would never seen before in your life and I look like a Looney Tunes one when Chuck Jones the guy who drove happy with you and Porky pig and Daffy Duck and all of those characters from Looney Tunes it looks as if he had drawn me after awhile he which hadn't even been introduced yet so it was the craziest thing you ever saw in your life and I saw something really strange happened at the audience your pupils began to dilate your eyes begin to open wide their faces began to melt they came together with the collective energy like a giant amiibo of three hundred fifty individuals and that to me but reached a suit apart out to me like a tunnel and sent its entire energy through me and I had an out of body experience I felt I was on the ceiling watching this whole thing take place well that energy flow through me went to something approximately in the area of my head was utterly trans modified and flow back out to the audience were opened their pupils even wider you captured them you capture them well what happened up after the thing was over it was so warm workable I mean these are kids who hated me that they did something they had never done before in my time at the school and they would never do again a surge down to the foot of the stage they picked me up on their shoulders and they carried me out of the auditorium on up the hill to the building where we got our classes so that was my introduction to the gods inside of us thank god I had seen my parents were trying to drag me up to the synagogue so one of my most important tasks in science became to somehow find a voyage of the beagle like Darwin voyage of the beagle where he went around the coast of South America and explore as your rectal exploration for five years and eventually found the Galapagos islands and have adventures he participated in the revolution the world with the couple gyros which are of how how boys went over for reputation for being twice as good as the cowboys in North America you get all kinds of things without those things we would not have the theory of evolution my task became became to find a path that would allow me to kind of wild outside the box adventures it would take me to the land of the gods it would take me to lands of these ecstasies and give me an opportunity to experience them and then to try to explain scientifically and I ended up in the ultimate land of the gods totally by accident because I grew up listening to Stravinsky and Bartok and Beethoven Rachmaninoff not rock and roll I ended up in rock and roll and it turned out to be precisely where the costs are how old were you how weird when you became bed ridden and then all of a sudden the miracle occurred where you got out of bed well I was forty five years old and I was stuck in bed until I was sixty I was stuck in bed for fifteen years and for the first five years I was too weak to talk and too weak to have another person in the room with me George we have done approximately three hundred and forty appearances together have you ever imagine me two weeks to talk never couldn't I could not utter a syllable so that but that was transformative too I was forced to come alive in a whole new medium the the internet was brand new most people haven't heard of it and I had going on in the nineteen eighty three in the music industry and since I lost everything that I thought of as my humanity I lost every bit of future I've ever match and for myself I was left it took me three years to establish a new personality life and so I became one of the pioneers of using cyberspace I wrote I found it to international scientific groups all over them that bad and I wrote three books while I was in that bag and you were doing some of our coast to coast appearances in the five hours with art bell which was on one of the most exciting things that has ever happened to me in my life exactly I was electricity incarnate he was he was tragedy there my friend tragedy there so at what point did you just get in the public relations and music and things like that that was a total accident I was on my way to grad school remember the head of the graduate physics department which said that I would get fellowships at any school I want to write well I got fellowships in four different schools in something of didn't have a name yet now we call it zero five I was gonna have to pace the together myself and then I had a realization grad school for me was going to be like I was with for the mind here I was interested in the ecstatic experience the guards inside the source of soul within us and how much soul what I find in giving twenty two college students paper and pencil tests in exchange for a psychology credit I would never get anywhere near the ghats inside so I jumped ship and I went into something I knew nothing about and it was called popular culture and eventually I ended up in nineteen fifty seven nineteen no wait a minute I got to give me your street nineteen sixties nineteen seventy seven something like that might be seventy five founding what became the biggest PR firm in the music industry because even though I didn't know anything about rock and roll that turned out to be a huge advantage because the people of rock and roll had certain standard cookie cutter way since they went about doing things ritualistic weighs in based on the New York yeah and I didn't know those rituals all I knew was science so I looked at what worked and what didn't and I was able to run rings around the people who had grown up as vinyl junkies and spent their entire lives in the music industry then as you got into it you worked with some incredible talent I assume Michael Jackson one of them yeah Michael Jackson prince Bob Marley Bette Midler ACDC Aerosmith kiss queen run DMC Billy Joel Billy Idol Paul Simon Peter Gabriel David Byrne ZZ Top Joan Jett trucker con the list goes on and on and on ZZ Top boys are are dear friends of ours Billy Gibbons and dusty and Frank beard good people and that they're still going strong yes they're still going strong and there's a new movie about them and every time I go walking through the park which I do twice a day people stop me and say you didn't I see you in the ZZ Top movie well it sure does to find the soul of these absolutely remarkable people to find the soul of Michael Jackson to find the soul of prince the fine visual of the soul a Bob Marley to find the gods inside these people and help them express those gods to their audience why did some of them go so early the Michael Jackson's the prince what what and what was wrong what compelled them to be so reckless if it wasn't so much recklessness and Michael Jackson's case Michael's on this planet for fifty years in he spent twenty five of those years becoming Michael Jackson and he spent twenty five of those years dangling on the cross and pain and he was thrown into pain not by any efforts of his own but because he represented more power he was bigger than Elvis Presley and the Beatles combined he represented more power than anybody else in the entertainment industry and just about anybody else on the face of planet earth and people who love power there was one person in the music industry in particular a villain who you'll see an operation in this book and that villain loved power and he knew that if he could cause trouble with anybody anywhere he could find a way to insinuated itself into the situation and get some of that money and power and he did and the expense was Michael Jackson's life because it's fat a negative cascade of press going for Michael but never stopped the kept going for the remaining twenty five years of Michael's life and.

Laredo, Texas, Fines for Residents for Not Wearing Masks

"The city of Laredo Texas is now requiring all residents to wear a mask anytime they enter a building that is not their home or face up to a thousand dollar fine beginning Friday the ordinance approved by the Laredo city council mandated that anyone entering a building using public transit or pumping their gas must cover their nose and mouth with the mask a bandanna scarf or any clots or face the fine up to a thousand dollars the rule will remain in place until April thirtieth the probably extend that but what the heck is going on here already there's conflict within the trump administration over the estimate of deaths were they reported that a hundred thousand to two hundred forty thousand Americans could die from this coronavirus three members of the president's staff who wished to remain unidentified have said where they get these figures but let's check in with Howard bloom who's been doing some work on this force Howard it seems like people just don't know what's going on well here's the deal what Sir with the bottom line first the president said yesterday that he hadn't heard any complaints about corona virus testing in two weeks we are currently testing a hundred thousand people a day for the coronavirus which sounds like a lot right sure not at that rate it would take nine years to test the entire American population now why is this important because it's now been proven that there is a surefire way to stop the corona virus in its tracks it's the big three of cast trace and isolate we talked last week about an experiment conducted involves the first town in Italy to have a coronavirus case the spurs tested all three thousand three hundred of those inhabitants every man woman and child they found sixty six of those infected with the coronavirus then they isolated the infected sixty six thank you yes what there were no more coronavirus infections none there are three hundred and twenty seven point two million Americans we have to test every single one of them then we have to isolate the virus carriers why to say between two hundred thousand two million lives one of those lives could be yours or could be the lives of the people you love and depend on the most your boyfriend your husband your father your mother your kids there's a woman in Ohio who already tested lost her father her mother and her brother to the corona virus and now her husband is on a ventilator most of those ports on a ventilator die that woman could be you or me so forget the fantasy that you want are invulnerable stay six feet away from everybody stop shaking hands and hugging even though we need hugs really badly in a time like this wash your hands at least once in our use hand sanitizer stay away from crowds and get togethers including play dates the life you save may be your own so let's look at the bare naked facts as of today Thursday you already know most of them but they bear repeating a mere two and a half months ago there were only five hundred and eighty cases of co with nineteen worldwide but as of today there are over a million cases think of that from five hundred needy cases to a million and two one half months then there's America we had a quarter of a million cases of car with nineteen and almost six thousand deaths at the rate of infection and the rate of death is skyrocketing today Thursday we had a thousand deaths in just one twenty four hour period and this is just the beginning meanwhile the president who not long ago so the only fifteen cases in the USA in the tune that number would go down to zero finally acknowledge that with radical self isolation we have we would have between a hundred thousand to one forty thousand deaths that's a quarter million deaths if we use radical self isolation what the president did not acknowledge that if we fail to use radical self isolation we will have between one point five million and two point two million deaths that's the equivalent of walking in the Houston and discovering every single inhabitant debt then there's the impact on the economy which you just mentioned we discovered today that six point six million people have filed for unemployment in a single week nothing like that has ever happened in history at the height of the Great Recession of two thousand and eight applications for unemployment topped out at six hundred and sixty five thousand in other words the corona viruses put roughly ten times as many people out of work in a single week as the biggest economic calamity in the twenty first century we have two choices one the economy at full tilt and let two point two million people die possibly killing off you and every one of your family members or stop the economy almost totally and saved two million lives I do you know how we're not gonna tell you this I don't think we can stop the economy things are getting get auto whack beyond anything you can even imagine and I don't think those numbers are going to be that high I mean already three members of the president's staff are questioning the two hundred and forty thousand estimates saying that sounds pretty hard to watch we don't know where they got those numbers yours they're wrong I did the numbers I took the numbers from the bay province of China and simply ran the math and I got two point two million deaths and it is said that the Chinese have been hiding an awful lot of their

"howard bloom" Discussed on CATS Roundtable

"Good Morning America. This is the roundtable chunk. catchments edens here Sunday morning and we let our minds wander with us. This morning is is a well renowned author author commentator and a common sense guy. He's named Howard blue eyed good morning. Howard how are you this morning John? It's a pleasure to see you this morning. I Xiaomi Our just so many things happening in the world and the things that are on the front pages Sunday morning Keeps and the virus purpose. Let's start with the virus first. How serious do you think this while you never know Ever since nineteen eighteen. We've been waiting around for the next big pandemic it's a pandemic of nineteen eighteen influenza killed sixty eight were killed Twenty million people. It was the end of World War One and killed more people than all of World War One and epidemiologists have been waiting around for another virus like that and this one is incredibly catching It's catching teaching honored about five to ten times the rate of the SARS virus and the mirrors virus in their early stages bought. There's something else. It's about about one fifth as virulent. In other words your odds of dying from this flu are a fifth of what they were from the mirrors and the SARS virus virus which were related. They're all viruses. So the odds are this is not going to be the next great pandemic. A lot of people are going to catch it. It's going to be like the flu. The flu kills sixty two thousand people a year in the United States of America. It is very dangerous and this is going to be less dangerous than the flu but you never know well but that sounds a little bit promising but I guess people have to be extra careful. I wash their hands three four times a day and and I understand. We know the press conference yesterday A lot of vitamin C. We'll help a lot of fresh fruits. Well the washing your hands is particularly important when you sneeze in public or when you coffin public try to cover your cough with your hand and then wash your hands immediately and as you said. Wash your hands as many times the day as as you can manage. I'm just good. The other big item on in the news is What's going on in Washington? I like the how he boop Bloomberg perspective. Well you know the the impeachment has been so preoccupying us that we haven't seen something else that's going on and it. Is that the Republican Party as we know it does not exist. I The Republican Party that Newt Gingrich who I work with on Space Issues Calls the institutional Republican Party. That's it's gone The people like Mitt Romney our museum pieces from an earlier age. It is the party of trump period and and trump is trump is not necessarily an ideology. you could sum up the old Republican philosophy with a few phrases like free market you cannot some donald trump because he changes his mind from week to week. I am meantime. The Democratic Party may be going through some major changes as well. We've never had figures as extreme or as close to socialism or social democracy. Whatever you WANNA call it as Elizabeth Warren and and Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton said that Bernie Sanders is breaking up the Democratic Party. So there's a sea change going on while we're all busy paying attention to the impeachment as for the impeachment itself. It depends on your point of view if you are a Democrat you think that Donald Trump is destroying the country and that he absolutely we must be driven out of power. If you're Republican or especially if you're a trumpet kittens let's call them trump akins rather than Republicans have your trump follower. Then you believe leave. The Donald Trump is making this country. Better be more rapidly than any other president on our history and he has only two things standing in front of him. One is the deep state and the other is what Laura Ingram called the shallow state and the sooner he can brush those out of his way. The better off America will be well. Well what do you feel closer to. Well I'm a Liberal Democrat. Even though I'm working with Newt Gingrich But I have to see things from all points of view because as you pointed out. I am aradio commentator. I have appeared a total of three hundred and twenty five times on five hundred and forty five radio stations. I I have to be prepared to talk about these things. Sometimes as little as twenty minutes notice and so I must see things from both pointed points of view my own own particular opinion is that what is going on right now with the Republican refusal to take the impeachment seriously. Is that if a if a candidate for president can use the vast budgets of his office to get something something that the founding fathers thought would destroy democracy to get help from foreign countries in destroying his opponents that as an advantage that no non non president can ever muster. No non president is going to be able to pull together three ninety one million dollars to got opposition research from the head of of another bruce. St and the result is that you are putting us in the physician that countries like his waylon have been with Nicolas Madura destroying the opposition like Russia where Putin destroys the opposition. There the opposition is used as a fig leaf but it has no chance of ever getting to the top and as a result you get a one man state. You get a dictatorial state with a president for life. Another example of that is Turkey with I'm Richard Type Better one. That's the last thing in the world we want for the United States. The founding fathers were very clear that foreign power must not be allowed to get involved in American elections or it will be the end of the republic so we have to I understand tailing and so by you know I was a bill. Clinton Democrat. I ran part of his campaign. Joe Biden is guilty of of high crimes and misdemeanors no. He's he's not guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors but he is guilty of poor judgment. You know the old line that When it comes to the emperor even his wife must seem absolutely leave flawless? Well when it comes to vice-president even his sons Buscemi absolutely flawless and it was a mistake for Joe Biden to ever say the hunter. Well I hope you know what you're doing no. He should've said the hunter. This is not permissible. Now Tell me you you are famous what they tell us about your books and and I am the ended. People have written books about you. Well yes there. There are two films About me one debuted on November tenth of Doc. NYC Film Festival hole in Manhattan and sold out it's called Iran unified theory of Howard Bloom. There's another film coming out me in April and and it's called my dinner with Howard. I'm the author of seven books and the most recent book is about to come out in April when the second film comes out if called Einstein Michael Jackson me search for Soul in the power of rock and roll and the story is that I got involved the theory. Theoretical physics and cosmology or coll- biology at the age of ten. So I've been in science all my life and at one point. I decided to take a little field expeditions. If something. I knew nothing about popular culture and I found that the biggest PR for the music industry and worked with Michael Jackson Prince. Bob Marley Bette Midler. ACDC kissed wing. Billy Joel Billy idol. Paul Simon Peter. Peter Gabriel people like that and it was the most astonishing adventure that a science person could possibly have. It was wife to Darwin's voyage the Beagle where he spent five years traveling around South America especially on the coast ownership adventuring like crazy and from that he got knowledge he could never have gotten if he had stayed in science the whole time and it's knowledge that are rich to science and I feel what my expedition in the popular culture did the same for me. Howard boom thank you for coming here on our show this Sunday morning and UH yours interesting? I hope you come on again in the near future and we we have more time for twelve. Hopefully we'll again soon drawn. This is the cat. We'll be right back..

"Obviously that the press at a larger bias today I mean different they denied that I think is to deny reality I mean Howard bloom might disagree with me but the I think it's obvious well I I think the the the beauty of what the founding fathers designed is still true which is yeah it's a free market and did the the press is not regulated by government met and it it will be left up to the market to decide I think the greatest problem the newspapers face is not has nothing to do with politics as everything to do with the fact that it's on paper and do that newspapers you know I I love newspapers and I read newspapers frequently but I don't live wouldn't buy them like I used to I don't have it has nothing to do with anybody's editorial policy whether it's a a more conservative paper like the Chicago Tribune or a more liberal paper like it didn't you know that I guess is what I turned in the New York times if we were going to say that but I don't I don't think that has anything to do with I think it just the times have changed and the generation that light having at actual newspaper in their lap is dying slowly and with them every year the printing of newspapers becomes a an iceberg floating to the equator and you can have anything you want on it you could put you could put page three girls in the next stop not gonna sell but but you had a bit of a biblical conundrum here are you if you recall the last time we spoke I I put forth the unit should quote unquote conundrum if you want to call it that where Christ the when the suffering on the cross he turns to the good he then said this very day you will be with me in paradise and yet traditionally Christ since you know isn't supposed to rise until the third day and on Easter morning he says do well when the surprise you Marie Madeleine at the tomb he said but she me not for I have not yet ascended to my father so I was wondering if you add the thought of Bob Vander had given it any thought I know you're not necessarily in the vanity but I have a masters of divinity and and I and I spent a lot of time with these types of narratives and even as for example coming up tomorrow night when god had a wife on coast to coast and we deal with some of the some of these aspects of the stories that are told that my very specifically used in the plural version we have there are conflicting elements of stories now some people will hate that and they'll say don't know they all fit together and they don't always and that's where the that's what the Bible is most interesting to me like why was it that Mary couldn't touch Jesus after the stone is rolled away but then later Thomas can put his hand in the wound you know it what what exactly is going on there we don't know and so a lot of ways perhaps what we there are big take away from anything to do with the Bible is to not expect that everything will snap together like legos and that we should look at the disparities in the stories is being sometimes representative of who's telling the story and who's receiving the story not so much the story itself so I think it I think part of what we'll get to coming up tomorrow night on coast to coast and Walter I think you'll find it very interesting is that there are elements of these early narratives about god that still exist in the text it's just now we don't really we can a gloss over them but the idea of the sacred feminine well we whether there were other gods that worked under Neath god the you know the the the the which we would call ya away or the you know the holy of holies to gods the best god the king of king gods however you look at that where there there were other people that were in service to that god that were also divine there are elements of that there are references to that all through the Bible we just kind of you know they don't fit in our simplification of the narrative so we don't really focus on them but we will coming up tomorrow night a coast to coast and I hope you'll be listening because I think you will enjoy it and.
