Be well and I'll see you soon to start this journey. Talk to The New York Times. Podcast your the less. I know the better of Music News and criticism I am your host John Carroll Monica Milling. That's what I'm saying space jams because we just played one for you that is borderline onepointoh Oggi version. Og Unavailable version. Except it's available right here on the podcast That's TAME IMPALA team is back with a fourth album. It is called the slow rush and I WANNA qualify this week's episode by saying up front. I don't get it. Want to be honest. But that's okay because just because I don't get it doesn't mean that people don't get it so we have two people who most assuredly get it to talk about impala and all things Kevin Parker jump rallies here pop critic of the New York Times again. That's right great denim jacket by the way. Thank you nice. It's a good color to cut. I appreciate you bringing that into the owner roll-neck. Jp doing big things today. Fashion Plato. Always Abo I didn't. I didn't catch the role when you walked in. Okay I'm glad to see that people are addressing up to. Gp's right my left. Joel makes us here. Hi How's it going great? Great Joe May senior editor. Pitchfork wrote the review of the slow rush. And that's what I'm saying like like I want to be honest like I read around. I don't know if it's at the discourse about team not level should be or people were excited about sugar. I don't know but I thought this review really made the case even to me as a person where I was like. Nah jowl know about all this so okay but John. Here's where your aesthetic are just erode block. Tell me about my stuff. This is like my dream. Your aesthetics are progressive. You like Christmas. You like digital clarity. You like fast articulated syllables. That's accurate and instead Kevin part comes with heavily. Layered blurry edged floaty things that just don't register leaning. Is that what you're saying? No no that then back that cheap impact. I'm so glad there's walls padded because you just knocked me right back into it. Oh my God you confess earlier podcast that your first review I review entire illustrious career Was PM don less true in the stuyvesant high school spectator and PM DOT com? That go cop that rare one thousand nine hundred ninety one hundred ninety two issue. I'm sure it's been. Pdf's I assume its offerings at the high school is on the wall advise school but anyway. Pm Don Beautiful floaty blurry edged drifting in space easy going. And now you've turned your back. No but you know a PM dawn had that Cam Barker. I do not believe has pm on had two things. One I believe the richness of PM. Dawn's melodies were much stronger and also much crisper number two PM. I believe had what felt like an explicit connection to grounded soul music of an earlier era. And I understand that. Kevin Parker is out here in the seventies and. Yeah Yeah I get that it just feels to me and I'm like NBA music. But it just feels a little spacey. But I don't WanNA dwell. I don't WanNa get you caught up in like what I think. That's that's fine. That's just one guy but two people here who really seem to get wise happening. Joe Do you WanNa talk us through this album? This album has worked on over a long period of time. Jp you sat with Kevin Barker by a year and a half years ago for this for this album profile. But we'll we'll get to that but can you talk a little bit through what he's been up to and why. This album sounds the way it does compared to previous tame impala records so in the time period between currents which was twenty. Yeah yeah it was five years? That album really changed. Where Tame Impala went they were able to headline festivals for many years like without even new music he started working with obviously like Mark Ronson Solo stuff and worked with Travis Scott and worked with worked with tons of people out there in the larger pop sphere to try to figure out if he could work outside of his sort of very low interest. Way of of making music. As I'm sure we'll hear more about from JP so in that time period. I forgot the most important thing he got covered by. Riano which like never happens and he just went from being somebody who I feel like was like a big indie band. This was like a big sort of top tier core. Pitchfork act say like definitely no real so you admit that such a Yes yes yes yes. Such a thing exists definitely a band. That's gotten multiple best new music like really a lot of indie rock rock listeners. I feel like who consider themselves? Kind of cool. Kind of Edgy. Kind of lonely. Yeah they were very much love this band but in the time period I think it helped occurrence was like so ambitious. You know it was really like. It was still psychedelic rock. But it was so much more in the vein of where he's at now which is bringing in all these different styles of music that are not necessarily rock base that are funkier and more soulful and touches of electronic music and stuff like that which obviously there is a real dance groove on some of these songs on the slow rush so he sort of blew out his sound with current and then had this five year period where his career just went totally nuts. And you know whenever artists have that they have that like coming back way way way more popular than they were the last time I think it does get in their head and it Kinda seemed like it got in his head a little bit. Yeah I'd like to listen to the reality version. What's called same old mistake? The original team. Paul Song is new person. Same mistakes that accurate. Maybe let's do it in reverse. Let's listen to the Rana version and then smudge into the Tame Impala version so we can hear the bones underneath what she did a can only feel like a brand so parker's back bigger and better than ever wearing flops in the New York Times. I just it's very directional choice on his part would scum skis Australia. And I don't know I've never heard of that continent or country or any of anything related to them. As far as I know it just stops at dance. Monkey molesting I know about the JP US spent first of all your piece on Tim. Bala came out a while ago and also your reporting for that piece was a while before that torture at artists right. We was also perfectly planned because I was going to go interview him in November while he was working in watch him make something with his November twenty. Twenty eight eighteen clarity back in the back in the Jurassic era. Yes and then he was going to put out the album because of course it was coming out in four months after and then he was. GonNa go headline Coachella sure perfect. You Know Nice music business. Timing area my creative choices around. My coachella plans accepted. The album wasn't ready for him. He wasn't done by the time he played coachella. Six days long did listen. I'm still listening to a set contract. I've been listening. It's last Wednesday salons in my mind anyway so anyway so it was like a very classic. I thought as someone who's interviewed a bunch of people like far in advance of their records like there is a sort of wake to squeeze the songs out. It's so hard like there. Is this kind of particular approach to creativity that he's I have to be locked in a room this by my stat. That seems to be in line with that. I think he played me ten tracks year and a half ago and what percent of those actually made all of them pretty much of the album. I mean okay. Some more finished another seat. He had is mental tracks for some. He had choruses and concepts for others. Borderline was pretty much done okay. But I don't know if the ten thousand extra layers of multi-track synthesizers are all in the version that he played me fair but it sounded pretty similar. The melody was there. The idea was there. I mean the other one who was pretty much done. It seems it might be time. And then a lot of the instrumental tracks for the others and he was talking about Stevie wonder he was talking about. Michael Jackson He was pretty clear on who he was finding in what was coming out. Do you guys hear that scope of ambition in the saw it coming into it as someone that maybe it's not totally sold on the VIBE. I maybe don't hear that complete reference frame ambition. But if you guys here and it could be either if you hear in. What ways do you think it's materialized in the songs I mean? I don't think I hear like Quincy level. Mj masterpiece type of thing going on. But and I don't think it's like near the level of shine or just like perfect pop hit Ted. I think of when I think of Mj. But like I don't know I I get a little bit of the Stevie five I in terms of like energy scope like ambition playing really caring about the technical level of playing and how it sounds and stuff like that. I don't know that I mean I think stevie wonder is like a genius of Economic Kevin Barker is a genus of music. I I get his music and I enjoy it a lot but yeah I don't think he's on that quite that level put and then I'll second. We all came. That's why Delphi side. But if you listen to lost in yesterday that's got a big crunchy. Stevie wonder synthesizer feel and let us remember that. Stevie wonder sits in a room alone and makes music to There's some kind of connection of the lone person and hearing all these interstitial things. We you know we went down in the basement and he sort of made a piece of music while I watched and it was crazy fascinating to watch. Here's a baseline here's cords on top of it. Wait a minute. I don't like those cordless to a completely different chord sequence that fits perfectly on top of the same baseline. Let's do a melody that takes a weird turn that you don't expect. And he's doing this in like ten seconds swerves between ideas It's just like pouring out of him and why it pours out of him. Yeah when it pours used that that bid on the album but he could do it and it was. He was in the flow as they say in Silicon Valley. He was enjoying himself. Anybody wants a manager stock portfolio for me please. I don't have any clue week for that. Can We talk about sort of Tame Impala in like the larger framework of both pop and rock music because he does feel that he's doing something that I don't WanNa say is completely original in the history of Pop music but in terms of what is happening now in those spaces? He seems to be occupying kind of a singular is that fair to say and if so why is it kind of gotten so much traction I think he is occupying a really interesting space. I'm always really interested in people that come out of Indie rock and are trying to both be still be like a musical innovator and make the album they wanna make but also participate in the deeply commercial parts of pop music and so I think he's interesting because he is not sacrificed what he's doing with his own music and tried to have a whole mainstream pop career with Tame Impala but he is fully. You know this stuff with Ronson and the people that Mark. Ronson has gotten him involved with just the level of of stuff he's doing. I mean when you're on yea or you're on Astra world or whatever like that is really a big deal is very loved by rappers he really is and I feel like it's like I kind of said this view but I feel like it's in part because he can write these guitar parts and things that like sound like samples but it is someone new always making Matt Gaetz obviously a lot. Easier to clear they can kind of customize a you know and I I get that I think it was travis that said like I need that guitar tone or whatever like when he wanted to work with him and I think he is occupying an interesting space and bringing some of his sound to music. That maybe wouldn't quite have that slant on it and your sample idea in the review was was great because it's it's why rappers like him they can dig into crates by opening up. Kevin Parker said. Do you think for on the level of texture like the the sonic quality of what he does. If that arrived from outer space not connected to Damon baller Kevin Barker. Where would you slot it? I feel like we accept the existence of Tame Impala now but I feel like you have another band just a rise took resentful just arrived out of nowhere. I think people wouldn't quite know what to do with it. Like tiny flavors of new age psychedelic all. These things are woefully out of fashion right now except new age. Maybe like two three years ago but anyway point too you know you got the point. Yeah so like where would we put this sound and I still feel like I wanna know like what is it about him? That's so triggering. Well I the thing he said in your piece. Jp that was like. I'm looking for something. I'm looking forward to people trying to parse like where what decade the stuff from and I think it really varies from song to song or even pieces of the song was part of a longer position. Because I I used the. Don't use this word word. I said talked about being psychedelic but the thing about psychedelics is not that I've had my experience with. Hallucinogens is limited to like one hand maybe But the thing is it's about this orientation. The ground falls away. You don't know what's up and down and the first album. Inter Speaker is psychedelic rock from the sixties but then the next albums are about temporal disorientation. It's like what era is this from. this goes with this. I can use seventy supertramp piano and I can use house. Music beats and I can use psychedelic buzzed guitar. It's where am I historically? Where am I? Stylistically it's outside the box which links him to hip hop which doesn't really care what you're a as long as leash. Listen to something from maybe from loaner ISM. That's my favorite of the team. In Bala records is their song that you guys particularly think is representative of this. I just love elephant all right elephant from liberalism in the sense. That like Tame Impala could be a legible ban. This is a very la- legible version of Damon. Bala it's more brock straightforward version. Yeah what happened between Loner is kind of in the subsequent and the next two records kinda before we get this like. Where did it all start? Kinda like threat out of the ends get frayed. I feel like it was really current. I feel like currents was such a big turning point in terms of like setting up the kind of multi genre multi decade span like just wide span of influence kind of like longer songs or more ambitious multi part songs the structures fault just more turned up to me. That's really like the album. That kind of changed everything. I don't know when he says yes I'm changing. Yeah I mean he literally says it right there. Yeah when did he stop touring with pond? When did he like get out of the Indie rock band? Van Thing okay. Am I mistaken? Here they still tour with him. Don't they like he can't do that all alone? No was he a member of them right. Yeah like idea being as being in a band versus being him honestly. I feel like it has gotten really more distinct this time around where the PR is really saying. Like he is one guy he is one guy like I feel like that started to take shape with currents when it got more popular and there was more of a stake to be like. He's the dude. You know what I mean so I I feel like it was around then. Maybe like five years ago six years ago. That was more of the process of saying like. We're not really band. Pond is a band that he was he played drums. Yeah it's like the other people that tour with him. There is still a guitar driven psychedelic band. They could cover elephant. Oh that's kind of. That's kind of a shot. Well you shot. It's true. It is true it's totally the same still. These same kind of sound is old team and Paul. I was listening to it yesterday and I was like. This guy doesn't sing is good. It's not as interesting like it's it's it's good if you like that kind of music but I don't know no shots to pond except kind of some shots John Bond but actually the other reason I was out in La at that particular time period while the wildfires were still smoldering right was that pond was playing in La so I went with with Parker to see pond to play playing with them. He was not playing with him now. He was like in the balcony and then they came to an afterwards. And saying you know what did you think rate reducer. But he was like an. You aren't no no no not at all not have we met before no knows more like you know sitting around backstage drinking beer remembering when they all used to live in the same squalid flat as in lost in yesterday where they remember how Great Squalor Anyway. But those were happy times for them. Squalor sucks just if anybody out there is wondering myself squalor sucks. I won't Mount Position Pro Squalor Dog. Are you going to be a strong no for me? They were laughing at their bachelor pad antics of the earlier era. That part was on the cutting room floor. That's such a delicious little detail. But he was listening and like trying to be but he was pretty much They were old old mates. Jp What did you think? They're fun onstage pond. They've been playing together a long time. They really animated. You know the songs are not as good as the but but but it's better. She did not regret that night out just to even go with Parker. That's such a cool. Yeah I'm going to tell one more anecdote a house he was renting in the Hollywood hills. Of course had a pool and on Ebay a few days earlier. He'd apparently noticed. Something called a hydrophone which is of course as you know live googling. It's a microphone that picks up underwater. Oh and he had also found a pool speaker. So that when you're swimming in your pool you can hear the tunes of your choice. Okay and so he. These arrived the day. We were interviewing. I think he was hoping to get something. Even more floaty I was gonNA say like it's almost like he would have had to invent these things if they didn't already exist so he played some of the tracks through the pool. Speaker and tragedy coordinate hydrophone but they to hi for him this is this is. This is like on this. Is that on this story? This story this story. This is like a horror story if they covered tame impala this is like so parody like. I can't believe this actually have so I'm going to run a correction on your story just to a pen. This five hundred word story. Editing choices this incredible and was excluded from the Vinyl version. That's the reason I signed up for this podcast. That's okay all right. Well you know exclusive new beats from John Burroughs. That's literally couldn't be more perfect. Get in the pool that you got in the show. We weren't listening in the pool. He was he was recording. It through the hydrophone he should have gotten in the pool sung into the hydrofoil altered. It back through the site. Do not know whether in another when I wasn't there if he didn't like costs a rock into the pool to get RIPA. Lisa that made it be on the for all I know. Yeah his body. I feel like would have made too much noise this this this. I love literally a bird. Jp JP. This is yeah. We're going to talk to care about this back story. Somehow you can have two hundred words by next. Anl story like a footnote from something. We ran nine months ago. I figured you would have. What next podcast the hydrogen vader? I sort of assume your house is just loaded with hidden microphones. I feel like they're in your kids rooms. I feel like it's in the kitchen. That's what got them to capture after the sizzle when they cook. I feel like your house is the clear view of microphones. I feel like all sounds are gathered into into like you're sucking them all up. Okay Fair enough. So don't go to Patriots House if you value your privacy at all as a black officially walls fun here. Yes it's true. We live for editing. Can we talk about Kevin Parker's extracurricular life sure? Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's been five years since the last album and me being a robust investigative journalists that I am fought lake on. I know he's done a lot of things and I wish I could. I wish I could learn all the things that can parker is done. And so I went on Google Dot Com and I started googling. Around how convenient that PITCHFORK DOT com? Did you sign this article but I probably did poorly edited. It called everything Kevin but it's literally so seo friendly yeah everything. Kevin Parker has done since Tame Impala last album twenty fifteen's currents and there's literally just dared dates got some instagram posts videos. She's worked with Ronson HE'S WORKED WITH TRAVIS. He's play these festivals. He's doing a bunch of things and then if you kind of move into the last two three months there's this billboard story where he's like. I'm trying to be Max Martin. Anybody anybody buying this anybody feeling that this is a viable given his sonic Palette. Wow super quiet for quiet. I mean just say the criticism for me is in part that I think that this is going to sound like a shot at billboard but I think that the way. They framed that quote. They like put it on the cover it really made. It seem like he was like I'm. This is my big goal. That was the whole thing and when I feel like when you read it in the story it's much more contextual of like. I am to be a songwriter producer for higher and be more confident in doing. Yes okay so can I All read the full cartoon. Yes because that's fair now. He wants to take his biggest chance yet. Making the leap from studio is in demand collaborator. At Center. The Music World Court. I hope to one day be able to do what I do on my own in a room. Full of people says Parker. Cc Me also like that continue. That's the ultimate goal for me working with Kobe. Oh and Gaga. He realized a lifelong goal writing pop songs for Pop stars quote. It's the Yin to the Yang of Psychedelic rock right here. Catchy sugary pop song. That's like three minutes long. He explains I want to be a Max Martin. Do we like these songs that he's written for other people. There are all sorts of wedged into the other people's aesthetic. Do we feel like wires? The Cabin Parker is there like an emblematic. One that if we played y'all be like Oh that definitely sounds like Kevin Parker verses do a Lipa League your whatever is there like a good emblematic one. The one that I think and I feel like it's a little bit of a cheat code to say this because obviously Mark Ronson on uptown. Special was very much like taking people and letting them and also on his album share like letting people do their thing. But he's on that Song Daffodils and leaving those felice and maybe a couple others from John Special and I just think there are more. I mean. He's singing to. I guess it's not really a fair example because he's actually on it he's producing NC or you're just saying off he's done these other collaborations. There's this Ronson record which we all agree. Sounds like a team ball record. So we want to get into this lady Gaga Record. I get into Lady Gaga Record. Yeah okay so it's called perfect illusion on Joann. I don't remember it is track six. It actually made it. Oh Wow don goes to show you how much of Kaga. So then let's perfect illusion. Which is track six Joey not a great lady. Gaga record but perfect illusion and see if you can hear the Kevin Barness in it versus taken in Middle Zone you alone back thing game. Strong way too see highlight can fit in. Maybe just that's what it means here. Kevin Parker Nessim Eric. Sure the did the drum sound Qatar sound. But it's all you hear the lady Gaga to jumped out lady Gaga s good. Here's the thing three four years between albums. I think he's a Solo Act. He's he's doesn't have any ban guy saying let's make the one like the last one only better. I really think he's trying to figure out who he is with each album and this album. He was in a weird limbo for a long time. So the Max Martin. Experiments the rapper collaborations. It's like let's try something. Let's see if we can shake loose. Some ideas and I mean to me. A lot of this album is about getting lost in making this album. Yeah it's it's very re cursive. It's very Meta. Yeah in a way like well. Yeah well I mean I think of a song like on-track which is one of my favorites on the record and he's like you could be talking about a life plan. He could be talking about anything but I have noticed a couple other critics were like this is definitely kind of seems like it's about the record and and I was like that's probably fair you know aren't let's listen to you getting over the Hump on on track and it's actually placed midway through the records. I think I'm getting over the Hump. But Law skewed He's always kinda slumping into his confidence. He's always kind of going back and forth between like. Can I do this and I'm doing this? I mean you sort of asked. I don't know if you want to go here but you sort of asked a little bit ago more broadly and then we kind of we're talking about a lot of stuff at once. But like what is his appeal. What exactly is his thing and for me like it is so much about part of that insecurity but he does have that back and forth or he has that like the attitude he brings to his almost self consciousness or talking himself into it. Or just little mantras. I think the the music has a ton of little repetitive. Easy to Digest. Sort of like. You're talking about New Age. Just sort of self help language almost but insincere way like a person who is feeling this in going through this and trying to adapt to being a loner and truly singing a lot of songs about wanting to be alone as you talked about in your piece people like. I think the psyching up process is so apparent in the music. Young it's just absolutely there. Jp in your piece. There is a part picking up. What Joe just talking about. There's this part where he's talking about. You know his early performances or so internal and you know he's like his head is down and he's can't look at anybody but then he realized there's some kind of almost like I don't WanNa say. Is it healing value? You or some kind of sharing energy that he gets from having something. That's more open hearted performance. That's coming from him. I think you said something the fact of like no one's GonNa perform if I don't or something like that. This is the Indie rock self conscious performed to a large audience. Indie Rock Mike. Coke must sustain me. Mentality gives way to wait a minute. I'm headlining Coachella. You know and and I mean who wants to watch. Somebody stare at their shoes. Unless it's a my bloody Valentine concert. I think if you're going out to perform you should perform I you know. I don't think he has to learn dance steps from bts you'd stand up there and we all could probably stand to learn well steps from bts something practical lessons what is the appeal of. Tame IMPALA IS LONELY. People listening to music and headphones. Yeah and really digging the fact that. Oh that guitar tone changes from Flange to fuzz and. Oh Wow there's another synthesizer line here. I didn't hear that the first time and these are really lonely. Music nerds and it turns out. There's a lot of us and know and they're all standing there at coachella singing along with Kevin Parker singing about being all alone and not talking to each other go far. There's some interaction. Maybe they're taking drugs together you know they're just making it makes it easier. The interactions so but is that motive listening that that actual motive listening. That feels like a ninety s. Motive listening or seventies motive. Listening or late sixties wasn't yeah bet more accurate. Is that a modern motiveless. I feel I get is and I feel like the the deep headphone nerd that wants to try to. Id like clock where he's pulling what air this is from her. That is from like the person that wants to see how it fits together like you were talking about j. p. But like. I think there's also like I don't know. I think there's a whole other segment of Tame Impala listeners that are like way more. It's more ambient on spotify for example because some of my coworkers seem to think that team and Paula is like borderline like stream bait like sort of things they get put onto playlist for like doing things won't turn off. Yeah be part of songs get picked up to be on like Youtube playlists for studying or like spotify playlist for like working out or like walking songs and driving music and so many tasks for doing stuff and it's sort of like there's sort of two different ends of at one listener. The listener that Kevin Parker. I think wants to cultivate himself. Is The headphone listener. The solitary listener the music nerd. Who knows history and wants to be turned onto this stuff? And it's like a record store EEK and then I think the other part of it because they are very popular. Is this more sort of like doing stuff. Play listing music part because of the music is like the songs are longer the. They're very like they change a lot. I generally A. B. It's like even a Ballad has movement and Tame Impala Land. You know I don't know it's really bizarre to me that there are kind of these sort of like what seemingly Divergent ways. Yeah I think of them as very different listenership and I haven't quite sorted out how much the the songs for studying to crowd is adding to their popularity versus the people that are really committed. I'm sort of like the jury's out for me yeah that's interesting so I don't think I could. I mean besides not enjoying this music. It's just the way it functions on a textual level and the fact that it changes so much my brain would just be like to allies. I would be constantly try. I would just be so sensitive. You'll be like if someone was like adjusting chair. Every two seconds. Just listen for a living. Yeah if you keep it. Low in the background it's smooth it's undulating it's rippling along. It's it's it's hydroponic hydrophones. Where I thought they would pay attention to music and not pay attention to music dynamic that you brought up is is a larger thing in streaming land. Yeah for sure. I don't think he's deliberately straddling it. I think he's sort accidentally straddling it. Like what percent of his popularity is is derived from incidental listening as opposed to active listening. Well because comments are of course. A complete reflection of eighty five percent of his listeners are active listener since I joined the PODCAST facebook. It's it's very fun. And there's a Lotta interesting engage in conversations a lot of comments. I see you making comments. You know who you you making comments but I think the active listeners are commenting but sometimes you get the Oh. It's so pretty. I could just float away on the all day. So they're definitely there that's just me. I'm just leaving that comment to undermine the active tame impala listeners. I'm just trying to offer an alternate already undermined there. All alone with their headphones. Help the Narrative Kevin Partner wants to build up of his fans. I feel not like kids. Smoking drugs in a field like accidentally listening to his. Well that sounds. I think you put it like that. That actually sounds way more fun than my experience. Listening to a lot of this sounds about the making of the album. There are so many songs than mention time. The first one is one more year when dust lost in yesterday. It might be time one more hour. I mean I think he was kind of thinking of you know they're waiting for this album and it's reflected in the songs but and I also think he got what I call rapture of the studio. You're like down there so often. You can overdubbed too many things on pro tools and just keep going and going and going and I think he's such a music lover that he wanted to try everything. The November nineteen listening party. Where was supposed to be done? It was at night moves in Brooklyn. Which has this incredible sound system and standing next to him and you could see his brow throwing and it's like he was hearing something let he didn't like any went back and remixed it again. But but it was like Steve such perfectionism in the way the parts fit together so I think he got lost in making this album and lingered over at a long long time. It might be time which is near the end of the album. It's one of the closer to a banger songs on the album is is about. All of his friends are growing up getting married being adults and he's still like being a rock and roll musician and it's like part of it is what the hell am I doing. And it's like what the hell else could I do. Maybe if his Sandra shorter he'd be able to get onto the next phase of his life more Russia later. What do you think? Oh padded walls.

Tame Impala

"In the thirteen years since Kevin Park I posted Tame Impala Musica my space. He's gone from being a member of Perth Australia. Sacred seen two huge Chela headlining act and the states in the process. He developed the best of both worlds. The respect of all your favorite artists and legions of fans sect every lyric and sound on his albums like most of his past releases. Kevin did everything on the newest tame impala album the slow rush himself all the singing plane production mixing everything he tells. Recruitment is how he's most comfortable creating alone but in the five years between his last record and the new one. He was busy collaborating with the weekend. Travis Scott Kanye West scissor and a bunch of other people have talked about wanting to work with to everyone from duly but Christine and the Queens Kevin connected recently with Rick on Zoom. It's been shelter in place back Australia. Ever since. The Corona virus interrupted his tore after two sold out nights at the forum away. You talked with rick about how being perceived as a band started eating away at an early and also asked about making two albums he loves California -CATION in uses this broken liner notes for the digital age. I'm Jason Richmond. Here's Rick Rubin and Kevin Parker and you might hear roosters crow in the background every once in awhile. Unfortunately sheltered in place sometimes means being surrounded by wild chicken. It's what was your introduction to music. What what are your first memories of listening to music? His Kid my dad was Kinda musician by hobby. I loved music loved Planned cover band just playing kind of Sixties Beach Boys Betas Rolling Stones covers and say he would always have the Senate guitars and stuff long on the house and in the end of the garage. I guess of Your Dad's music was the first your first memory of was of him playing music or of the music you listen to. Obviously we listen to it because he would. He would always have music playing in the car. In fact we because this is one song that I that I have this memory of always asking him to play and I remember there was every time I heard it was you know I must have been about four years old dad this song to this day. I don't know what that song is. It's hard break. Dad's still remember a pasta about ten years ago so So yeah I don't think I don't think he would have remembered that new either but it's Yeah. I have a feeling it's the shadows song. By the shadows randomly came across the song in life it would lightbulb. Would go there it is. It would probably trigger some sort of weird episode. You know wherever I wasn't probably just sort of stop breakdown in some way but at the same time. I think it might be a song that I know the moment by the shadows because I have a feeling it was instrumental and I know that it was really like touching and melancholic which which kind of points directly to the shadows and what was your first music. That was yours. Probably GonNa you our like. I would have been about eleven years old. My friend play means Yvonne because we were like the first kids in our class to get into music in like a girl in his house every Tuesday or something like that off to school and we'd like discover rock music. I was kind of it. Was like a piffling. Absolute REVOLUTION OF LA LA. Just like jumping around the room. That you know that that that whole that whole kind of discover that whole story which is probably everyone but Yeah I'm in Nevada and kind of just a a a a cascade of smashing pumpkins Silva anything with distorted guitars. Anything with drop-dead shooting but that was always the kind of part of that music. That was kind of it wasn't just like angsty was a kind of discovered the motion. It like smashing pumpkins next. Smashing Pumpkins has that that real that real kind of sensitivity to even though as like blaring wall of sound. You know what I mean delivery. I started started experimenting with making music. yeah well. My brother played drums. Sahin older brother or younger. Yeah he's two years old Sahan drum kit which I just thought it was incredible. I like says sort of you know. Just watch him and it was kind of. Wow so obviously I immediately wanted to copy him. We had this type Dick in the the music room which was. Kinda just ruined the house. Type Dick the microphone. Input Jones is like kind of like cassette Cassette decks and with some accordance Jack in the corner just has mapra phone and so we plugged a microphone into a and just recorded ourself playing drums just to sit down like and then we had this keyboard sitting in the rooms. Little Cashier GonNa thing and a one day. I was just playing along to myself playing drums with the I didn't even know how to play. Kyaw hitting random not sound like a nursery rhyme probably unnoticed in the room. There was a second cassette deck with the same thing so I stuck a mocking bird mocking. Did that and recorded myself to hitting these cays over the top me playing drums and listened to that type and it was made playing keyboard to my. It was may two things at once. Blew my mind. Lower lead stood have been eleven amazing. Yeah yeah the idea of starting to do it with the ideas of making it for other people to hear start. Well I mean like like every young teenage musician I had like grandiose dreams of being a brock star especially because my favorite band was silica and they were like fifteen sixteen and I was like twelve thirteen by that point. I was like I was like I couldn't like fifteen sixteen. That means I've got like two threes two threes. I can. I can still get to where they're they convey them. You know how young they were because they were such little kids for whatever reason whether it was because you know because that would like young Australian boys or because like they're kind of they would have been the symbol ahead spice in are the kind of like their approach to would have been in the same realm as Mon. How did you decide to end up being a solo artist as opposed to being in a bad? Well I always. I played in bands the whole time in high school like I was obsessed the idea of playing in bands but it also had the making music thing at home since before. I accidentally multi-track myself. That time I was playing in a band it was kind of this. Is Music School that I went to where they teach you. An instrument was drums and then every Saturday morning they get the kids from different instrument tuitions and put them and put them in bands so put me in the in the band so I wasn't abandoned. Eleven which I fucking loved. I could not why I could not why for Saturday morning to come around because it was like you know playing music with other kids was just this. Another mind blowing thing But I also but then so I better that better recording music by myself and the two worlds never really met like even even the Stott of Lifetime. Impala when was sort of like twenty one twenty two? We were playing songs that I'd written for us to play live and they were the ones. I was recording harm. That we even had on Moscow's it took a while for the two worlds to kind of converge if that makes sense because I just didn't know how I didn't know how to translate what I was kind of doing harm expressing on my on because music was like super kind of against against sensitive is the word and kind of nuanced and John Lewis but the music is making bands. That was music was more kind of like what we listen to a group. Like kind of more angsty like heavy kind of stuff at the time that you started making music with the idea of putting it up on my space. What would you say the influences? Where what we listening to By the been who hope to get to play which drags up that was around. The time now is super kind of obsessed sixties music. So I was kind of like the doors Jefferson airplane. I didn't have a lot of kind of like modern day. Audibles Just because of like that was the kind of Lost allies leading unlike as living in a house of the paper. We kinda just. We just permanently listened to seventy Constantly I mean. This is Banco Dongyan that I was super into still am to this diet. That's gives me goosebumps and it's funny because I listen and I can hear my first album all over. You know it's something. I didn't really notice at the time consciously but just like the. Yeah how'd you describe how the second album different from the first It was it was a hundred times more indulgent. Which is what I wanted. You know because I'd had this kind of like surge of confidence that I didn't have a previously prior Baker. Kinda shy stone kind of and I like the way you had a lot of a lot of success. The first album went on tours and all this kind of stuff and so I suddenly realized that. Be Kind of validated. My approach and my kind of like what I wanted to do. So I can say loner. Ism was kind of like Blind that wide open. How did the third album when that came? How is that different Well I mean the second still didn't fully know what I was doing kind of like I got Abelson and instead of just sort of it being the corner of my bedroom in show house that I made it for. The second album is like fuck it. I'm going to dedicate to this so I set up a studio in a room in my house. It must be done full room for for once and I would just Mike Hours and hours of I I just I like using sense organs fucking anything you know I was. It was kind of you know that kind of typical moment for a solo modest way where they make their you know their self-indulgence. Oprah's it really was that looking like the Thomas and seemed like the first two albums. The arrangements seemed more complicated. Yeah that's probably true because in the third one I was kind of like influenced by Lada. Aren Bay an electric music so I was kind of embracing the way that music was made more like finding a loop and kind of almost making making a bait like a you know in in like the hip hop sense like instead of just having like a full loop and just sort of making the structure out of that rather than going like okay. We're going to be going this bit for awhile ago. Jam when these codes and then like two a huge drum fill and going to these codes and then let this thing for five and a half house. Do you remember what the music that inspired that? Switch like what would have been the things. You're listening to that. Maybe WanNa make more program based music. I mean like it was always that I was into but just music that I kind of shied away from making because I figured like my world was we'd expansive sock and like if I tried to do. More kaleen focused pop kind of stuff. I assumed it wouldn't work was the where I'd kind of like just went fuck. I'm GONNA try traumatic kind of like disc- O. R. and B. Kind of like really the Bait Select Stupa strong heavy. Would you consider the I two as air in the last Air Nah? I've never thought of it that way. Maybe some people would I guess the third one third one is the one where I was kind of like a new that they would be fans of the first two. That turned the nose up like I was ready for that. Do you know what I mean I was kind of like I decided kind of definitively that that That I wanted to change my sound and I knew that some people wouldn't like it. You know what I mean that was in my career where I kind of like sucked it up. You know. It's a great thing to do early on. If you made four albums that sounded in the same vein and then the fifth one was different. It would have probably alienated more people early enough in the trajectory where you let the audience know that. Hey we're GONNA go on different rides. I want you to come with me. Bob People more forgiving of the style changes if you prepare them for it. Yeah Yeah if if if change is one of the constance yeah it's like if it's the ramones was a program dance record. Anybody would have been excited about right and also something I realized was that I mean. What's funny is that the first album and the second one I like as well time impala was always kind of perceived as a band and I was Kinda cool with that because I like because it it sounded like Banville will allow you know. It's a it sounds like a bunch of guys jamming. I love this. I love the I love these guys. You know I love the way out but I kind of like it. Kind of it was eating away that it wasn't like the truth And also because also like a wanted I wanted people to know that it was kind of more of a solo recording project because I realized that Solo Artists get away with completely changing their sound a lot more than bands. Do you know like someone like Like back back can just take a complete left. Turn with one album. You know. Let's that's Beck and that's what he does but like with the band kind of like I feel like a few things to happen like everyone in the band. O everyone in the group rather has to decide on together which is more difficult. You know they'll have to be sort of moving in the same direction whereas people you know people especially as time goes by people like drift apart when you decided to give birth to project a name originally as opposed to your name was it. The was it the opposite of what you just said was. The original impression was freaked to seem like a band. Yes absolutely in fact the record label when they signed us even we were didn't it didn't know it was made it was playing drums and guitars. And Bison Mall checking like they we. I outlawed to them. When we met up the contract that we saw was for three of us. I think Yeah because I just I I I do want to say it was just made for a number of reasons like one. I was kind of shy. I just you know it's really weird because looking back it's kind of like why the fuck unused owner but also like the kind of music thing. I was in was very communal sane unite like we lived to jam and live to like play. Gigs SAR like for the thing. That finally came out of that same to bay. Just one like a solo project thing token wrong like it'd be. It would be like saying that we had going past was kind of like a bunch of us but they weren't that many people but what we made tons of bands out of it you know so like ten people and they'd be like six bands with like different combinations of those people. Just just because you know. I like a lot of fun when we come back. We'll have more with Kevin Parker whether you're working from home or working out you want what you're listening to to be.

We're back with Rick and Kevin Parker feels like it was like four or five years between the third album and the new During that for years you didn't you didn't write songs or make any music I did. I absolutely did but I just didn't see it as time impala and it kind of seemed more like a drag to think of a song as time impala because it like every time. I thought of a song if I imagine time empower came loaded like the idea was loaded with all these kind of things that come with it like it just seemed so much more magical and wonders to think of it. As a song I could collaborate with a different like making time. Impala music now and always. It's like it's a deep doc hall that I have to go into and you know like come out like it drains. It drains every bit of me realize that the end of the third album. You know I I always dreamt of making your time. Apollo album or I didn't feel completely spent at the end of it completely. Drinan completely like depressed him and I kind of realized after a while that was inevitable and that was the only way it could be in the course of those for years before he started working on a new album. Did it reveal itself state? It was time or was the decision you made or did one particular track come out with like. Oh this could be the beginning of something. It was a combination of the first to you know what it was. It was more like it was the process of a because I'm falling in love so much with this idea of music being a collaborative thing you know like the energy in a room when your uh working people like you know started working with Dr Scott. Someone that like. The energy in the room is just so electric you know and I was like Hey I can. I can that energy on my own too. I just have to just have to embrace it you know and so then. I started so like the way I started working on. The album again was by like pretending. I was in a recording session with a bunch of other people. Staying up late is getting getting trunk concerned. I kind of just having a party of myself. I guess just Embracing that kind of way that when you on the in the depths of working by yourself you feel like many people feel like you're channeling particular people or is it. More of a general feeling is not music someone else or do you envision this year with me. What would you do both in different times? It's like may imagining. I'm someone else's kind of more when I get stuck you know it's like what would or Pharrell Williams do in this moment. Actually it's funny one of the one of the things that got me inspired. What started for some reason? I started watching. There's this like six PA Youtube video series on the making of justified. And it's it's almost seems like leaked footage because it's just fly on the wall someone just holding the camera. The entire Thomas starts from like them in the in Justin Timberlake's private jet and they're flying to the recording session but most of it is just someone sitting on the couch like filming Ferrall and Justin kind of messing around having a laugh and like making the songs you can see frill can piece together Senorita like there's like a twenty minute patch of him just playing drums to suck suck to that why that's not what starts out. But he slowly slowly converge on the Bait. That ends up being Senorita site. He's okay gets up things like that back and I don't know why but for some reason that kind of just made me think about how I make music and it kind of reminded me in fact one of the songs on the album kind of like came out sounding similar to something. I would imagine for L. Injustice. It'd be doing for Fif- Justin Timberlake. Which is a SOMBRERO depot? The first from the start of braves day Bo was kind of May pretending I was real and justified. It can justify. Let me ask specific questions. You often have a little intro signature. Intros that are not necessarily part of the track. You know like it'd be different beater. It sounds really different than it sets up the hall but it doesn't feel like it's part of the song. Do those happen after. I guess that's just may trying to Just create those kind of moments of like gelling into the track. You know like in the way that you hear in hip hop the way that like like just cutting to something completely different is because sometimes one of the most satisfying things on so sometimes it can be an accident. I accidentally accidentally play the track wrong. For example the start of backward feels like we're GONNA go back on online. Racism was may. I had loop one bait on loop That's kind of like the lost Of the chorus or something you know I had a jury ruled. You're you're around the Oh shit you know? That's one. I have many happy accidents. That's not true I do. I have a lot but That's just one of those happy accidents in it so I guess I'm always on the lookout for things that can considered techy one way and then quickly back the you know and so more more often some accident might happen somewhere during the course of making the song and you might think. Oh maybe I can use this piece at some point and many many figure out how to use it or or might you have a finished song of okay. Now I want. I need an intro and I don't want it to be like the rest. I'm in those kind of things kind of moments accident there almost. It's almost a something that I rely on happening. Because a related not. Sometimes I get kind of just spiced out and in those times. I'm not very musically proficient. But because because you're not consciously aware of everything doing it frees you from that the boring straight down the line cognitive thinking that you do. United States that kind of It's almost like your subconscious is involved in the writing process. Yeah exactly exactly I mean I try. I try to bring that as much as possible because I'm someone naturally I'll try and process every you know I'll I'll I'm probably more naturally and over thinking. I'd like to be you know so. I smashed weighed in a recording session. That's something I'd do to stop myself from overthinking. Because that's that's that's that's the time when I'm just like Yeah that's cool. Let's go with that. You know I let off sick. Don't think about fucking think about it. You know not not another native. He's done to to get into that kind of space but always kind of times. It's also like being being in a hot and emotional state like being super feeling super emotional. In whichever direction is also something that brings out that way. You're not thinking about with some good. It's just it just hits the spot of you because you're feeling depressed because you're feeling elated or you particularly joyous particularly sad. Those are times when you don't ever think things to hold these things we're talking about all instrumental at this point where we're at in talking about making music and those feelings that you get excited about are we only talking about instrumental at this point. No it can happen all at once. I mean in fact most of the IDEAS. I HAVE FOR SONGS OUR IDEAS. I've had not even in the studio and that's of the the other thing about catching you off. God is the songs come to me. When I'm not thinking about writing a song you know. In fact if consciously decide that I WANNA ride a song. I can pretty. You can pretty much guarantee it's going to be the Shida Song. I've I've often tried to Larry search like that idea would come to me and like the only thing I can that I've noticed a patent or whatever is going from like allowed place like a place with a lot of energy into his into just like walking outside stepping outside from a room of people suddenly going from a Lotta Shit going on thinking about and then suddenly nothing and then my brain has to find some way of feeling that void suddenly did. I think that's something that's the rate of the fact that you notice bat is really It's it's a beautiful note and really helpful for you that so happy that you you realized it sure. Yeah yeah well I mean like. I think I'm a science person so I'm always like how does that happen? Not Not so that I can Fabricator or not that I can force it to happen but just just because I want to know I'm just curious like what makes me think of ten songs in three days sometimes and then nothing for five months. Okay so now. Let's say you just left the loud room with a lot going on outside silent. What might eight one of these seed ideas? Look like what will be the first thing that would come. It's like picking on the Radio Melody. Lyric both a both all all the same time. Yeah it's like it's like it's it's like looking on the radio and it's going to read it because it's not like it's not like starting the song at the start so I'm like a song starts 0.00 song starts. It's like coming in halfway through cores. Survive you pick up and then and then I just do my best do my best to get to a place where I can record it before I forget. It obviously got like one hundred voice. Memos my fun. You'll be like to buy a one bit of music so drums will. The drums will be the drums. Let's try and find one. But but it's it's rare that I'll listen back to a undecided. It was good enough. Just I don't know why it's like someone. Singing unity is hey man. What about this goes Donna? And sometimes at the end I feel compelled to go record. This fucking recorded. This warns sunlight much and listen to it but recorded. They'll play play when it left up to the Mike to Jenkins obviously not the kind of the rhythm section eight skipping melody Yeah so often I'll go back in just like force myself truckload winless. I haven't recorded that one. That's missing to it. I'd say about ninety nine things that it's not out of ten ideas that I have. I'll forget because I'll be meaning to record out my voice memo but someone will be next. I'll be talking to someone and then we'll get into a car with the car radio applying and it'll absolutely what it'll what whatever. I'm thinking you know gotta catch fast absolutely and easily forgotten too and I always feel bad about going. I was feeling kind of ego about a guy mainly that go back going like hey guys just shut up. Shut up plays. I've got an idea you know like I. I could never do that in a room. Full of pay or with with anyone on with. Here's a suggestion. Go to the bathroom. Hey where there's music playing in a in bathroom sometimes by by not you know Neil Young has ruled that Regardless of what is going on in the moment where he is what he's doing if a thong comes to him everything stops. Yeah Mala and he gets that idea down before that goes away because he knows it's fleeting and we don't have all of them coming like you said. Sometimes we'll get you might get a bunch and a couple of days but then you might go months without getting another one so they really are valuable and they're also valuable because they're all different and you never know which one is the great one you know. Maybe one of the best ones evaporated. Yeah I family belay. I genuinely believe that I could have songs. That are my best song or whatever you know. There's definitely things that have disappeared that that would've been great but that's just life okay. Well I'M GONNA give you permission to always either ask people to be quiet or to or to invite you to leave where you are to go. Capture these ideas. Because you're doing doing a service to the world. Why that's that's actually really powerful to hear from me a ribbon. Can I get a little sound bought from you saying hey everyone can you get the fuck out Kevin? He's good just plan to the light July. Hey I will make one for you and send it amazing diving magazine just like hey guys regrouping when we come back. We'll have more with Kevin Parker.

Podcasts starting may first back with Rick and Kevin Parker from Tame Impala. Do you listen to music for law? I Don and I and I want to more. I have less and less since I started making music since music became the thing that I do. I've been more and more preoccupied with making it so I haven't given myself Tom. Listen to it like it's extremely difficult. Fa May to justify putting on an album to listen to over potentially thinking of a song because for me like if I put on an album. That's an hour that I wouldn't have an idea you know. I'm that obsessed with coming up with new. I was like finding a new law a making a new song because making a new song makes me feel like nothing else in the world. There's no other feeling in the world that I get from the feeling of starting a new song that I think has great potential sadly more so than than listening to something that that is equally. That is great. You know but but I do want to. I do want to force myself to listen to more music. I had taught of the Creator and his nod wiring today. He said like he wakes up every morning. Listens to two hours of music before. That's amazing I WANNA do that. You know just like you ever started a song with another song in mind Like someone already exhibit some sort of just like a song. A song from the sixties anything. Wow this is my inspiration. What would I do that? It would be a mistake not not suggesting copying it but I'm saying being invited by to WanNa make something that makes you feel like that seals not that I know of but something that do sometimes kind of subconsciously. There might be a song playing in the background. Like you know in a like on the radio or something and then like delegates switched off and then. I'll think of something that goes on from there like I'll have the rhythm and maybe the key in my mind subconsciously. Start seeing that goes on from that as though as though the song kept going with it changed. There's an example of that which I don't know I feel like I'm GonNa get busted while you know fuck it. It was It was two thousand twelve. Now there's a song well. My Song feels that we're going to go backwards. A. Must've been listening to the UAE. I've traced it back. I think I was listening to this song by beach. House earlier that morning it's cold walk in the park. I think. And it's funny because it's the same tempo in the same key and possibly even similar codes but it was at the time it was. It was too much of a coincidence and I'm pretty sure it was around that time. That song came out so. I'm pretty sure that I'd done that with that song. Kind of like that solid stopped and then I'd kind of just like my brandon continued on same tempo and key maybe even light. It's probably even like a little motif in there. That's the same kind of Combo two or three nuts. Yom and so. That's something happens. I don't think there's anything I think all great artists are heavily inspired by artists in its own good. Yeah what's funny? Is that when I say that now? It doesn't seem that bad but but I think back then I used to be so precious about like the sacred melodies sacredness of of artistry being being Holy Holy as like w edged the inspired and not influenced by anything so like back then I would have thought that was terrible but now now that I said out loud it's kind of this is one of the ways that let great song can come out and then especially when I discovered on appreciated hip hop more like sampling. And stuff like that so you know that's that's another whole realm of taking these interests. I think creative use of a sample to create serving new is. It's just a new form. It's like it's creativity beautiful way to express yourself. Let some things for a new US like. It's really cool. Yeah it's also a completely Other category of skill. That can be Mazda that I didn't realize early on when I start making SAC- rock install not that I have used of sampled myself but like I used to think like someone's done that already. Like hacking take credit for that but finding that in itself and realizing how can be reimagined Ray? Presented is extremely difficult especially when there's an ABS. There's a universe of music at like finding the right thing to use and how to ease something that I that I admire extremely now. Let's it can happen. Even I mean even with cover. Sol's AH different. Artists could take the same song that someone else bid and just through their interpretation of it completely change. The meaning of the song is so much that can happen in the personalization processes music fully fully. Like that That Mad World Sung United. It's a it's not really somber song. Yes and it's like. How could this song of ever Other than this yes. The the cover version is spectacular. Yeah and if you listen back to original it's cool but the cover is it. Yeah exactly rate example the first BG's hit was the phone if they wrote for Otis redding do you know the story not not how one another love somebody k. Live so mad they were at for. Reading Amend Otis Redding died and never got to record it and they recorded themselves and put it out when you hear that song. You don't think about as ready you think of the BJ's it's like a classic example of a song in their mind that was for someone else. Yeah Yeah I like hearing stories that is kind of comforting for me to know that there's that kind of uncertainty honest have as well with with where song should end up anything else about well tended to ask you about everything you've done but I don't know that does probably something times. What was what was recording. California cash unlock. Just because that was one of the album's that like was big from A. That was kind of like my first year of highschool album that I was kind of obsessed with physically the way it worked with Julie Uppers we would. It would write songs on their own for a long period of time that we together in pre production playing the songs in various stages of of community and we would talk about him and discuss key strengths and weaknesses and how they could may be better when you many bars or whether they had maybe not enough parts a and and we would usually by the time of that album. Really workup the songs as a live band in in the rehearsal room so that when we went into the studio it was surely getting the performance like everything was worked out completely just with the players maybe not all of the words yet but I think back then maybe many of the words were already written when they can perform it live and wow amid goal of that really was to to to not confuse the writing process with the performance process. So that when we were in the studio we really knew what we were doing and and Phil we like play the same Song Hundred Times. Yeah get it to come together in that in that way where it feels like if the perfect version but it's also got mistakes in it. It's not natural. It's just it. Sounds like a band on a really good bike. Machines playing it. It sounds like the best night they played that on your this was we happened to catch the best one so two things over and over with that idea and someone have been very quickly someone take a long time and then and then all of the overdose would happen after that and make decisions of things to try and we usually record many many many more cells than whatever was on the out pretty much always the case. Wow I would save for every album. We made there were at least twice as many songs as songs that Romney out and what what happened to them. Evidence based on some have some heaven. Wow that's glass crazy for me. That's that's such a wild thing because for me like I just make the songs that I need for now. Like a song will not get past where he won't get past anywhere close to half way finished unless. I know it's going to be on the album so I I rarely ever have base odds of any kind so the idea of to think of like a completely a complete other like parallel universe album that never existed. That's funny because it's Sung on California Down I guess I guess that's how most have you noticed. Have you noticed how when you first you excited about it and you think Oh. I you know I worked on these with this. New One is my favorite of the batch so far as you work further it may be doesn't become your favorite of the batch and then another song that using this is pretty good but maybe not my favorite song that as you continue working on it it becomes your favorite song of you ever have that. Spring Melt. My thing is like first song to make an album. It it has to at some point. Have been my favorite song ever like. I have to have had a moment with that song. Like it has to fertilize today. Asked to have been just like my favorite thing I've ever done. It can never be like just for some reason like I. I want Bother going through the song unless at some point I've thought that it psych potential is limitless. Or it could be the greatest thing I've done my greatest not just greatest like Oh could you know by the way? The most critically acclaimed whatever. But just just the just the greatest you know. I like I guess for me. The thing is like from starting a song and having all these just thinking. It's an having a moment with them. I'm feeling great about. It's kind of just like a rice to the finish line to get the song finished and have may still feel the same way about all just for me to still love it in a you always finish before moving on to the next song. No no I mean like ours ours up until mastering. I'm still rotting off for for a song for like up until a few hours before. It's don of like a year of working on. I'm sort of like rotting lyrics rotting recording lyrics and editing drums. And I do everything at once because I'm my attention span is too short to kind of like my work. I I have horrible work ethic so for me to sit down and do like one task until it's don is extremely rare. Just also have like be recording By Salon for and get sort of like halfway down the Abu something else now because that's the luxury of during myself. I can do it without a derailing. The so I can kind of just like oh now. Now I WANNA thing as the Knicks. Want to do a bit of mixing on drums a do everything at once. Then which which can which can create this sort of like complete mess of and can make me feel can can make you lost in the Progressive Asong. So sometimes I'm like oh I don't know where I am with the Sonnen are. I don't know if it's almost finish or if it's nowhere near that united so I'm kind of just like in lost in this in this in the in the woods known. Do you ever go too far. And have to backtrack yes height. Back a height backtracking but but yes Which is interesting. I was something I wanted to always wanted to Nar. And like maybe maybe not able to say because if it's like a secret but uses 'cause there's the myth that he has a story that he came to you sort of a couple of weeks before it was done and you kind of went like let's get rid of that go into that and like strip down which to me like that story is like. Is this holy grail of discipline like executive discipline to say like we need any of this. You know because for me. That's it's it's it's. It's extremely hot if I recorded a song. It's extremely difficult for me to say he doesn't need to be in the song. 'cause like my Brian like on. This isn't the place for you know it's a my songs can end up being so extremely dense and I'm sort of finding a way to sort of like sitting there in that but to me like the greatest strength and the greatest ability in production is to say all of this stuff. Here doesn't doesn't need to be you know so i. I really don't know how that happened. Will be ruthless in the ED and I I like that word. Ruthlessly is the right word because you're used to be comfortable taking your favorite artist song. If it doesn't if it doesn't serve the saw the most important thing is that what what's presented is is the best Possibly be and it's not a collection of things in that one. What makes this song the best? It could possibly be anything that doesn't mean to be there. Needs to go and I would say just the opposite in terms of I never feel bad about taking out but then again you know from the beginning. It's always been by Might instinct is to have the least amount of stuff to get the idea across. Who believes mount stuff doesn't mean that that's A. I'll say that that's an organizing principle for the way I work within sometimes will decide. Oh let's put a bunch of stuff are missing. That's the way we like it. It's fine it's not a rule to live by but it's a it's a way of thinking and the reason for it which is when you clear as much space as possible. The things that are left you really hear them. You really feel their personality. There's less There's less jockeying for for your attention. To- each thing it's live in its own space. And that's space is. What makes things sound so beautiful? It's the it's really you know the old adage the quiet between the notes. Yeah exactly. That's that's truly remarkable. Because for me it's like it would be torture to do something like that. You know like the idea for me because I'm listening. Oh Fuck Ya. It's the place my brain goes to his leg. How can the song the best that it can be without your favorite bit in the song? The favorite bid might end up being a different song. Yeah true current it's like the same like it's It's one of the things that I learned early on. We're working with bands will really players is that most great players want to show that they're players. I'm there is. There isn't much room for that team recording recording it really is what needs to be there to best serve the saw. It's not insertive unless of course you know a guitar hero album and it's really about showing the dexterity of the player not about if it's about the songs it's never about the coolest part it's about how parts interact to make the greatest whole sometimes the thing. That really cool ends up being a distraction. Yeah Yeah it's true. Yeah I mean I guess. That's kind of like the kind of philosophy that I'm like developing in myself at the moment you know because like so much of my music has been this kind of like layered Psych Rock GonNa symphonies with learners and was kind of the pinnacle of that were because it was so indulgent it was like this. Cincinnati. I'M GONNA tell on. This baseline is going to come in here and it was packed in peds packed in. So it's like a really sonically. It's really interesting Listen because nothing really jumps out at. You accept always bits which is similar vein isley. What's wrong with but also what's kind of like charming and beautiful about but You know like the that kind of discipline that you're talking about is something that I'm that that I that I see is is One of the greatest wisdom's to have you know being able to sense. What what what. What a piece of music needs and what doesn't knits. Lb Idea that maybe for particular project you want it to be super-dense and yet not being on itself a master. That's that's what makes that project that project. That's fine it's not. It's not like a everything has to be that way. It's more of a nightmare on. It's in the bag of tricks in the baggage right. Gotcha Yeah Yeah Fish. Oh I guess I just feel like yeah that that. That's kind of like a because it's a new and wonderful thing for me. It's kind of. It's one of those things I'm curious about. You know the next time met with both of 'em saint place and are in the world is a world where we're allowed to be same room then let's Let's get together and listen to music together.

"Deal Qualification" - Sales Success Stories Book - Sample Story #20

"Yeah. You're listening to the sale success stories podcast where we deconstruct world class sales performers to provide insights and strategies to help you improve. To learn more. Visit us at top one dot FM. Here's your host Scott Ingram. Today. I've got another sample story for you from the sales success stories book, which contained sixty of these stories from twenty different top. One percent sales professionals qualification seems to have come up quite a bit lately as topic. So I thought this was the perfect story to share with you here. It is from bullhorns top enterprise account director out of the Netherlands story fifty to do qualification how USA lose about forty percent of my deals to a single competitor by Alauddin than how much impact can two questions really have your success. If I had experienced the impact myself, I would have answered that the impact would hardly be visible maximum of percent or so, but no more than that. Right. Taking that back. Why did I lose forty percent of my deals to a single competitor looking back? I would say was down to stubbornness and eagerness. Being until we sometimes or most times suffer from the conviction that we are invincible while my other story is focused on mindset, I did raise a point on being realistic about sometimes we just have to wake up and realize that we can't win every deal. Some might say that that can only be one winner in deal. But think again, there are more. If we're not talking about the person that walks away with Impala shipping or sorry mean signature who are we talking about who else could be winning in the pursuit? When I was asked the question. I didn't know the answer. But it makes so much sense. The other person that wins in a deal is the one that gets out of the cycle early. Have you quantified how much time you're spending on deals that you were never going to win in the first place? Probably not you probably want. Don't want to hear the answer to the question. I sure didn't this brings me to the other reason why a loss that much to a competitor. Eagerness if we can get into his cycle, which is want to participate. Why would we turn down is it because I'm too busy? No, of course, not bringing on. I can handle more is it because the choir our out of whack. Nope. I'll reengineer division. Perhaps is it because we're calling fodder and the competition is way ahead of us. I'll just give it a trend. See if I can turn it around. These are just a few of the excuses. We give ourselves to ignore the fact that we contoured down a deal without having a go at it. Right. Like, I said our eagerness to get into another sale cycle, and our stubbornness of not being able to walk away is causing us to waste a lot of time on deals that we were never going to win the first place. I love datum and enjoy analyzing it maybe a little bit too much sometimes. But as such I was reviewing the deals that are happy working on a year and looked at the reasons loss as well as which competitor, I lost two. That's when I realized that I was losing about forty percent of my deals to single. Editor that's you tried and after further analysis losing forty percent of my deals to this. Fierce competitor, wasn't you to the strength of that come Titian? It was because I was too stubborn to walkway, and I was too convinced that my existing seal strategies work, essentially, I was too eager to get into the he'll cycles. You can only imagine. How surprised I was to find out that I lost more opportunities to the fact that the buyer didn't purchase anything at all that I lost to an actual competitor. Yes. You heard it. Right. The most frequent value in the loss to field in my see ram was no change at all. While the reason why a lost them had. Some variables it all came down to prospect, either not feeling the need to change or not seeing the value of changing to our our products or service or that of our real competitors. I must admit I didn't know how to handle or change that directly. So I discussed with my peers, I don't remember how eventually got there. But suddenly, we realized it was not the prospect who was to blame here for wasting our time we were to we found out that I wasn't the only one with that experience these separateness and Egan's prevented us from recognizing. Why these prospects were likely not to buy at all? So the only one that could make change that would be me. Therefore, I started reviewing these deals in more detail and eventually recognize certain trends and approaches sometimes prospect told me what I wanted to which is a very dangerous thing of which I'm sure we've all experienced and stuff to call that out. However, what I realized was that while I was asking questions in the right direction. I wasn't asking the right questions to flush these people out that were going to buy I knew the challenges, and they had told me their requirements as well as someone of a buying process, although several of them gave me true buying signals. It just wasn't enough. The author. We're looking to improve their existing environment, but they couldn't quantify the challenges with the status quo. I mean, it's very easy to fall for the comment. If what you have to offer is better than what we have today and will improve her situation, we will buy it at first. It sounds marvelous, but defined better and define improvement. How can you measure that if you can't measure it you can recognize the difference? Meaning the prospect will be able to put a numerical value on it deep off make sense. However, that's where stubbornness Turks is again, it's not the prospects. Responsibility of put a recognizable value to something. It's our responsibility. It's our job to make the prospect of where that value and get them to agree to it. Okay. I made some mistakes with that last one this bell revealing evaluated prospect thinking, they got it. And just moving on long story short. Just make sure you confirm that the prospect really on the stance the net. Necessary information before doing anything else. So how did I change it? As mentioned before I wasn't asking the right questions. Or better said, I wasn't asking the questions in the right way. There were two questions that I surely hadn't thought of myself, but I took these questions and made them in tire topic of their own in a prospect per shoot. Oh, and they are so simple. They are why are we here? And what happens if you don't buy? Of course, I had asked these questions many times before but like with selling sir to feature 's products are impacts you need to build it up put weight behind a make it very important. I can remember over certain deal in Belgium, where off these questions looking at them straight on and remained silent a few seconds men by and another few seconds. Yep. Almost getting out where here, but then in happen. The stakeholders turn to each other and started debating amongst themselves trying to enter these. Questions are just sit there watching listening and doing nothing. He was amazing Julius Caesar said Vinnie Vive vici after about ten to fifty minutes of debate where they clearly had different positions. They have called out the key pains and articulated their business goals, but also quantified the impact of what would happen if they did make a change due to those two questions they've realized that if they didn't make a change they would fill to achieve their goals on time and hands they had to make a change essentially, they were finally able to consciously and in a very clear minner tell me why we were there. It was a smooth sailing from there on and they signed about eight weeks later. This is a perfect example of how these questions impacted my success, and I would rather say topics because many questions relate to these two important ones. However, it has been an amazing experience trying to perfect the conversations we are having arou-. These topics, and I couldn't be more thankful to my peers who helped me along the way. So what happened to that forty percent while I still lose to no change it has drastically decreased. This is you to many different factors some of which I have no control of. But last year I managed to get to an eighty two percent win rate on qualified deals that would have been absolutely lower. If it wasn't for these two questions yellow also contributed to other stories to the book, which you can find links to at top one dot FM forward slash book. Those are titled mindset consists of multiple factors and can have a massive impact. And don't forget to add the personal into business relationships then come back next week for my interview with Dale Carnegie's most consistent top seller. Thanks for this.

What is it Wednesday? Yes but what are? They're not listening to it on Wednesday. Will you better be listening to it when it drops on Wednesday today right? Whatever time this week has felt like it's dragged on like for For a long time. I don't know why I've had. I've had lots of coffee this morning. And I I don't know I feel like I feel also the reason why my week felt so long as because I didn't really have a weekend like I've worked every day since last Wednesday. Actually so I just feel like my week has been dragging on like little by little. Oh well we're not. I haven't been working crazy hours but just work today. Yeah a little bit in the morning but I work from home this morning but still it's just I don't know it feels like my week has been dragging but nonetheless. I'm here yes. We're so glad you're here. Are you really that? I didn't seem like you were you. Don't sit the your co host budget. Here thanks thanks. Yeah you missed me but I did want to do nothing words in my mouth that I say that I missed now I just said I. It's nice to work with you. That is all these. Do not put any other implications steam. I so last week we talked about lovers and friends fast and I waited. Presell went on Thursday and I am. I was on my computer I am. I was in that line. And you don't have to wait like when you are waiting in line for your coachella festival ticket and you see the Little Man. Running mine took so long but I was able to get my ticket my friend and I signed. What's Yes i? It's real disappointed. I wanted to not be real. I wanted it to be a joke. I wanted it so badly. I didn't want you actually lose money. Like he wanted to get any no. No I didn't want anyone to get scammed. Getting scammed. No not getting scammed implies losing money. I wanted it to be a joke. I wanted them to like make everybody wait in line to buy sales and be like oh by the way. This is actually really happening. Heart got a lot of people were upset because I mean I like I said I was in line. Probably like nine thirty. I was at my computer out on the site and everything and some people were on the site at nine. Am and said that they waited. Forty minutes WANNA hit to like by ten forty. They were still in line. And once they got to the page everything was sold out the presale so was sold out but they then the tickets went live again the following day Friday morning. But obviously that's the general public and tickets are going to be more expensive but a lot of people are upset saying how is it that? I was on my computer at nine. Am and I waited over forty minutes past ten and I still didn't ticket so and I was kind of confused too because like I said I logged on at nine thirty. My friend was driving pulled over. She logged on like at nine fifty five and she actually got her ticket before me. So I'm not really sure I'm not really sure like I don't know there's a difference between have you tried to go on your lot or the giant the paying on the website from the IP address the closer to ten o'clock it was like it moved. Them may be right. They were in the queue sooner rather than later like it's not like you ordered people on the website cue from when they arrived there In length of time they ordered it in like at what time in the different orders for the first person who was there was the last person in the queue. Perhap- halley makes sense. Because I I. She talks to me she got. She waited in line like twenty minutes. I waited in thirty and she guard ticket before what? I've been waiting here but that actually can make sense but you know how like nerve wracking. It is just seeing that man. The little guy running and I'm just like hurry up like I WANNA get my ticket. But I've never had to purchase tickets for something that was so popular at sold out in day. Coachella I don't even bother buying. How did you go with that one year? The year that I went was the first year that they did two weekends and neither weekend sold out. L. Really Yeah I. We didn't have to it in. I honestly like if I can help it. I would never go to hold up. Show my life really why I mean sold out implies a lot of people a lot of people. I don't like a lot of people. Yeah I mean but I am super excited and I know it's like one hundred percent. Confirm this is real. This is not. I'm not going to get you know. This isn't another fire festival and if it is well you can catch me in the next. Netflix documentary lovers and friends being scam but no. I'm actually really excited. I haven't been to a festival in about three years and I. I'm actually a fan of this festival over coachella because it's not as I mean it's a first ever doing it. This is definitely more my styles music. There isn't going to be compared to the size of Coachella. This is a relatively smaller festival. But it's not going to be that. I think the venue is a state schools like field because when I searched it. Have you heard of CAL? State Dominguez Hills and Alaria. No I have not that. Tell tiny the like state school. It's a pretty small state school here in California and it's like looks like it's in a field like a baseball field kind of because I don't know that's where my map pointing me to. I could be wrong so but I'm really excited and I can't wait to talk about it in May and to tell you my experience and if I got scammed if people actually showed up to their sides but people will I mean. Megan US dallying confirmed Usher like I said all these people like posted on their stories saying that they will be there. So I tell you because I didn't know if like you just wanted to rub it in my face. I did this giant smug right now. I know because I was like. I don't know I was running a risk. But you gotta risky for the biscuits sometimes. Yeah I mean at least based on the number of people who are actually like. I don't know promoting it and the type of people that they are like. There's no way that they'd be able to escape after taking a bunch of people's money you know so it had to be legit in some sense or they'd have to give people their money back are maybe this is made up the list and then they saw people buying like. Oh wait now. We actually have to book. These people. Think let's contact their management management. So yeah that's possible to lovers and friends fast will be. There will be an update from me and may so tuned for that. There won't be from me. I'm not going no but you'll be here to listen and maybe laugh with me and cry with me if I did get scammed. You're like I'm not cry. You're going to be laughing at me. I would not let me okay. So moving onto something. What's what's what's the things that we wanted to talk about today. What's our what's our juicy gossip juicy gossip our music news today. So have you guys haven't heard the are now releasing or they have started the Whitney Houston Hologram tour.

I have a lot of interesting points to bring about the situation which we'll get into in just a few short months by this tour was created in partnership with The singer estate by base Hologram and base Hologram has a proven track record of bringing legacy acts back to life through digital appearances with successful concert. Tours of Roy orbison which I think they're like they were rockstars. Buddy Holly and then Opera Diva Maria and this tour will feature digital pretty much the same thing like what they did with to park Shell of years back when the dog to they did. It's now yeah so base Hologram will be featuring a digital reincarnation of Houston and a live Broadway performance with dancers and live. Musicians will also be part of the show and her her holographic. I guess is a d'appel Ginga Right. That's recalling it Which if you haven't seen if you google it it's Kinda creepy because it looks so real like when I think of Hologram. I literally think of like raise shooting down at the center stage. And like I don't know I didn't think like holographic images were that advanced because it's actually pretty chilling. How Realistic Whitney Houston looked from the first night of her tour which again happened yesterday. She was stunning. It was interesting. I haven't seen it at all but I didn't see the show. I just felt like pictures of and some of the songs that her holographic I guess. Yeah d'appel Ganger is going to be singing some of our best friends quotations right really playing vocal track right. Yeah that's played along with accompaniment so if you go to her concert you can expect to hear. I will always love you. How will I know? Greatest love of all. And I WANNA dance with somebody with somebody I didn't know Whitney Houston. Did I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY? Yeah I love that. I know it is and so the first show premiered last night. twenty-seven shows are expected to happen throughout. Europe. The very first one happened in England and reviews some of the critics who The music critics who attended the show. Some were positive somewhere negative Some of the fans reactions were not as positive as I would have expected. Because when I think of Whitney Houston I assume that many people were fans of her music and yeah I mean like I said her legacy lives on in her music will always love on. But there's a reason why so many people were I guess weirded out by this whole situation so when you came music critic suggested that the show was quoted as I quote crass exploitation and just like horror films. He says bringing the dead back to life never works. It's probably best to let sleeping stars. Lie I mean so this canary. Okay show me also Whitney Houston's she does not have a say is done with her in lane. So that's a longer her and electrical properties somebody else's satire. Lotta people kind of feel like this is almost a money grab from base. Hologram and her estate because so then don't buy the tickets if people want to buy the tickets that's their own prerogative. I don't understand what the problem is here. Her tour is set to come to North America in fall of twenty twenty. So I don't know how well this Holographic tour will be received here because it is like a new wave happening right now like all these like Hologram tours shred so it's kind of weird. I mean also heard. Death hasn't been that long ago either. That hasn't been that long so that's why they did one with Amy Wine House. Like just seems a little weird so it's just like brings a lot of questions of ethics are coming up like. Is this right how we just discuss like is it. Okay for deceased artists to perform like. Who's calling the shots? And like I said we have to consider too that when Houston. She hasn't passed that long ago. So it's like I feel especially for those who are close to her family and friends like we're just reopening a wound almost. I don't know that's that was my take on it when I was reading some negative reviews because again when I I was reading their views I was like why are people. Not You know why people not really. What's the word? I'm looking for more appreciative. I appreciate enjoying it right like I thought this was going to be well received and it's not so but then once I started like Kinda looking at their perspective and really think like. Why do they feel this way? I'm like what makes sense like again. Shouldn't didn't pass that long ago. And WHO's really calling the shots? Icu saying this is okay. We should do it. And who's profiting from these tours? I mean those are all elements that you should look at when you make any purchasing. I'm like it's not like I know it seems kind of crazy but you should think about that whenever you buy something from Amazon. Really anything right. Yeah any squabble. Economy at you should consider every purchase decision as a kind of is making a political a political statement absolutely true and another critic that brought something up. Also this is also if this is okay to like is it okay to do this with the holographic tours is it similar or different to pushing out unreleased music from deceased artists? Like Mac Miller right like his producer released all these songs after his death. So it's like. Is that kind of the same situation. Is that any different. I mean if you're asking me I don't think I mean basically the same thing I really don't understand why there's much of a discussion going on about this in the first place if you don't like the tickets don't it's not like the company that owns the rights to songs didn't acquire them through some shady means most of the time most of the time they paid accordingly to acquire those rights and they are allowed to do with that intellectual property. What is that? They would like now where I would say that. Perhaps the moral or ethical gray area would be is in like the portrayal or the image of that person. Do they own her image enough to put it out on stage as a Hologram? That's the portion where I would say. There's maybe some legal or ethical recourse to talk this and wonder about whether or not it's okay but like ultimately her family wanted this to happen. Then families should by the intellectual property and prevent it from happening and if she didn't give her intellectual property to her family upon her death than like. There's nothing that we can do about that. You know she's gone then. That person is dead. Same with Mac Miller like dead. They're not here to to have a say they're not here to be honored like you know there's no point in trying to make it more sacred than it actually is. We're all GonNa die so like you know someone's going to benefit and someone's going to be hurt right everybody's death so why are we like overly complaining about the fact that someone's profiting off of someone else's intellectual property like it doesn't happen every day? Now that's how I just wanted to bring it to all these critic reviews were saying so. I was a little shocked I was like. Oh I thought it was going to be like amazing raving reviews with like you know the life Broadway show dancers but each to their own. This is for sure one of the more controversial Hologram tours that based Hologram has produced and on that note. We're GONNA take our first quick break and when we come back Keith. You'RE GONNA share one of your top picks for this week. You are okay. Always on the go but the day. Just be without your Hollywood's golden state media concepts under ten podcast take care of that and all inclusive look pop culture and hello and welcome back to the music podcast normally. I would do my best to wait until last minute for Cynthia to bring a sin but she discovered she has crack on her screen so I felt bad for them so upset right now. I literally just realized during the commercial break. I looked down on my phone. I don't even remember dropping. I mean it. Luckily I have a screen protector but still annoying for me to see probably in the gym doing dead lifts and then you just didn't even realize slowing johns. I four hundred actually. I'd be surprised if you could actually live to two hundred on like a good day. Bye and I've I've been consistent. Honestly look at the moment. I've lost a lot of strength because I'm and training insert right now to become a barn structure so I've had to kind of put strain training to the side and focus on bar but once I get my strength back up maybe but like I said on a good day after like be pumped feel good. Eat right all that good. Listen to pop smoke. Pop smell thing. Hops monkey action? Yeah I highly recommend okay. So we're GONNA talk about some music this week. We both picked y picked. Three eight records and Cynthia picked one It's been pretty difficult from law. 'cause like there hasn't been a lot of you. Good music release and especially for me like I feel you choose more alternative. picks whereas minor more R. and B. and which I think is a good mix for this podcast because we kinda give the people a little bit of everything but there hasn't been any good rb or hip hop music out so Mike. Why don't WanNa recommend anything that I don't I'm not actually listening to and my pick is actually something totally out of what I normally listen to you. Anyway we'll get to that eventually so the record we're going to talk about first. Is The new TAME IMPALA RECORD Slow Rush Which a lot of people were talking about when it first came out and just because everybody seems to have a thing for Tame Impala. I think it's because he headlined Coachella last year like he's now labelled as an official like festival headliners status so That's the only reason is pretty much. Just Kevin Parker right and I mean songwriter. I I liked it though I liked. It was Vibeke who it's definitely the name slow so I was able to enjoy however I will say the only it's not really negative. There's just a personal opinion. I couldn't listen to the whole project because it was too slow and I could also was end the right state of mind to listen to it meaning like I wasn't in the mood to listen to slow music at the moment I mean. I was washing dishes when I was listening to this album. But that's not out of dishes. I that could be like. Oh I have anymore watch so But no I I enjoyed it about WanNa hear exactly why you wanted to share it with us for today's episode. Why was topics just because it's popular and everybody's talking about it So I figured it would be relevant. I think it's both revenue prevalent most of the time when I pick things it's like. Hey because this really obscure band that only has like two hundred thousand listens on spotify. Which one of the band's on here does literally have that so I think that's funny but now slow rush is taming. Paula's fourth studio record a release in February so it came out really recently I guess it took like almost five years total right lance yeah. They started writing it immediately after their last record which was currents which came out in two thousand fifteen and was an absolutely amazing. It was an honesty is kind of a masterpiece. There's just track after track on. That record is just so good. I think like half of that record my workout playlist like Oh really okay. It's really really really good. Just like solid like DANC- not quite as like psychedelic as they used to be the funny thing about team impala and if you're like in music means you've seen that mean going round of like Tame Impala fans before two thousand fifteen Tim Apollo fans after two thousand fifteen that mean well before two thousand fifteen. It's like a bunch of dudes with beards. Who like look like they're into Psych Rock Then after two thousand fifteen. It's a picture of like a group of Gal pals drinking wine in two thousand and fifteen hit and currents came out there like the demographic enjoyed their their music like rapidly changed because there I two I think inner speaker and I can't remember the title of the other one off the top of my head right now but loaner ism inner speaker and Loaner ISM are these like psychedelic rock records. That are just really really good and trippy an interesting and then you get currents which is like psychedelic dance. Rock is how I would kind of classify it. It's got like an eight minute long track on their called. Let it happen that I absolutely love. I think it's an IT's probably one of my favorite tracks. No this is on the record before slower. And then after currency came out with slow rush which is nowhere near as good as currency in no near as good as their previous stuff. I actually really didn't like this record in in like in comparison to the previous work that Kevin Parker and Tame Impala has done this record feels like way too. Poppy feels boring and uninspired in my opinion like his have you listened to currents and Inter Speaker and Loaner ISM. You would probably agree and I think that a lot of people who have heard those first two records loaner ISM and Inter Speaker would probably agree with me as well because like generally the reason or part of the reason that people are even talking about team upon I was because of the success of currents. And now it'll be partly because of the popular success of slow rush and slow. Russia's designed to ride that wave that they got from headlining festivals. That makes sense. So maybe I mean I have nothing to compare it to because I didn't listen to currents or the music so I guess for you. Listen to their old stuff so you're guttering them. When life that was. That was the first recognized. Second see how you're probably not as impressed Out of the yeah. I don't know like this slow rush. Didn't really like do much for me. Yeah absolutely like I said. It's slow I've only got through like five songs. Just because I was a kid getting kind of tired of it. I don't know it could be an. I wasn't in the mood to listen to music. I don't know the singles on it aren't bad. I can't remember which one sows where but like if you want to listen to a couple of tracks recommends the tracks that came out as singles. I think one came out in like November of last year and one came out in January and I think there was one more that came out maybe in December. I'm not totally sure either way. Check out the singles that were on the record. I think those were good. But otherwise like this is pretty negligible. As far as the record is concerned. I hope that this is kind of like a sign that Tame Impala is maybe miss shifting towards something different in this is just kind of like a transitional record that like isn't necessarily as good as their next one would be because they'll get it get it right next time. They're like refining their recipe for music right now and then their next record will be a more refined version of this and I could see that being super enjoyable so I'm hopeful for the future for them but overall. I think that you could miss out on this. You're not missing out on this record by not listening to it. So yeah I'd give it like a six out of ten. I can't even invade. Ix didn't finish so AM I. I'm I I can't read it completes incomplete right there. You go and I dipped incomplete. Let's talk about your next pick. 'cause this one to me also was oh. It was only similar to tame impala because there are both kind of slow but I think I might area I guess right atmospheric would be a way describing But I yeah so. Let's talk about your second pick here okay. So the next pick that I've got for this week music that I was listening to and I think this record came out super recently. Is a band called loving and the record title is if I am only my thoughts which I love because I'm super into philosophy so it's very existential The bio on the band there like like On their on their spotify account or the spotify profile it just says loving is good or something like that are always very brief on their about. So they're kind of mysterious and like a little Hong which I thought was funny. I had to do some digging to find out that it's a bunch of dudes who met they from Canada and they met while they were planting trees in the forest during summer. So only has like two hundred thousand. Yes yes so. I think the the they were part of the candidate Conservation Corps or something like that and then they were like what have we started a bond because Flynn candidates on like British people now and so this is their debut. Lp which I think is pretty cool L. P. Record project where everyone thought they had previously released like a collection of Demos as an EP which is pretty cool The the point of their songs and they're the whole album as a whole was kind of like to capture the sounds of feelings of being in the Pacific northwest of Canada so cold and sunny with lots of trees. So what did you think of this record? Did you listen to the whole thing? I listened to about halfway because same thing. I just kind of got the same I guess tone from Tame Impala was Kinda a little redundant for me to keep listening to the same tune if you will again. There's just a personal opinion so I had to cut short also at this one. I actually think out of your three picks the next album that will talk about in. The next segment is actually my favorite. Pick out of the three that you chose so also if I am only my thoughts by loving didn't do too much to me. It wasn't memorable for me Well how about for you compared to TAME IMPALA? How was this record for you Well I mean I. I like this one a lot because I thought it was kind of interesting. It feels like a more optimistic. Wilco is the way that I would describe it. You're not familiar with the band wilco. I don't want to be. I feel like I've heard I might have mentioned it. I probably have mentioned that. Yes Oh Wilco is kind of like alternative rock country southern rock singer songwriter. There are a lot of genres anyway. I really like them. If you like Wilco. You'll probably like loving. They've got like that similar like on a sad guy vibe but like sad adult vibe not sad boy vibe And the song titles are creative. Lyrics are creative. The vocals are solid. The instrumentation like really lends itself to kind of like putting you in a specific head space. I really enjoyed the songs like the title track. If I'm only my thoughts is good nihilist. Kite flier and stranger to yourself. I really really enjoyed. If you are interested in like going back and this Cynthia I would highly recommend listening to in reverse order if possible so that well because the last few tracks are much more like upbeat and enjoyable. Maybe I sorry. From top to bottom. There was one song that had no lyrics to it. And I can't remember and I was like okay like I'm just done by disadvantage quick break. Yeah Yeah Yeah and speaking of quick breaks. We're also going to take a quick break so we'll be right back. Tired of searching the vast jungle of podcasts. Now listen and hear this out.

Let's get straight into it. You know funny banter no funny banter because it's all about business right absolutely no discussion of anything else between you and I- prior to my statement of my next record that I listen to this week. Do you have another statement? Yeah anything else to say the other than the fact that we're currently talking about something other than the record so technically we didn't go straight to it now. Let's get straight to it right now right now this. Why is it that all of your picks have the most interesting album titles the artist's name super like I'm there's just like is this is this is? Why is this? Why you like are able to plan or make up our titles so well because of these band names like I have. No idea are just like a collection of words put together and it's like what does this mean. Yeah Yeah what. What was the one that I did like? We talked about blood. Ritual history secret history of humankind. That's so weird anyway. The Band for this one is Cobra Man on spotify. They also have like under a million listens which is awesome. So if you're into underground obscure stuff like these guys are for you. Record title is toxic planet. This is their. This is their second Studio Album Cobra. Man is a two person project and the quote about themselves is Los Angeles powered disco duo scoring electro punk Skate film soundtracks. So what that means that these two got their start writing soundtracks for skateboarding videos which. I think is actually kind of cool. Okay so the first record was pretty much exclusively for like like some skateboarding. Collective and record is also like inspired by or partially focused on on a bunch of skateboarding stuff. So that's cool is so this? This one made me giggle because again I was washing and my brother was walking by and Living in hell which is one of the popular tracks and the outcome was playing. 'cause I was playing it off my laptop out loud sound Mike images like vibe to a little bit. My brother walks by and he goes. What IS THIS NAPOLEON? Dynamite at am expletive. But like he didn't say like root. Here's just like again knowing how the TYPO listen to music. I typically listen to. He was kind of caught off guard a little bit. He's like this is like an opponent like. Yeah he's like what is dynamite. Co host makes us actually sit in their kind of like by being it to me and he's like like it was just like funny to see his reaction but I definitely when he mentioned that I I type. Lol and the and the and this show no sound like. I literally laughed out loud. Somebody actually reminds me that. Have you seen pulling data my of course the dancing scene? I think it's a talent show for like literally. That's exactly what living in. Hell when I pictured it gave me a lot of eighty five th the whole record kind of Wang Chun's living in La. Yes with the keyboard. And I think also the female vocalists and the background. I'm not gonNA try and hit those like high pitch notes because you already know me my voice. What do you call it? The lower voice an Altho- I'm an alto. What's the High Voice Soprano Soprano? I have an ULTA voids. The how you say yes sir. I would say like my vocal ranges and my vocal range is an alltel and I can't go to us. Soprano look at me knowing my music terminology but I actually was. I enjoyed it like I think my favorite song off this album. Was Everybody Party tonight because I mean it's in the title of the song by a picture. This song playing in a movie scene eighties theme like Roller rinks Super Great. I actually saw. I really liked it and bad feeling to was another good one. At that Song I could see like playing and guitar hero so all the same songs over this record. Really look us go. Wow yeah out of all your music. Picks this one was my favorite one just because it was like different eighty five and the Polian dynamite. That made me crackup so glad you liked it. Yeah and my brother did to my brother. I was able to enjoy a couple of the songs he was. He was just caught off guard because like him knowing me. He's like usually playing like you know drake or summer Walker or some other. Some of them are there are in be right and do you have any other final statements to wrap up this four against straight into my pick of the week. No I really enjoyed this record. I highly recommended Cobra. Man Talks plan is the band and record title. So took those out pretty cool. So what did you listen to this week so I listen to this album twice from him back to this morning twice and there was seventeen. Yes record is fifty minutes long like twenty minutes into it. I was like Oh my God. When is this going to be over what you didn't like it okay? So what's funny is when you sent me this record. I I was like who is Katryn. Hotta this this is not. I'm just not digging this and then I looked at his spotify and I was like. Oh my Gosh Katryn Nada. Is that guy look obvious? Record that he came out with is called ninety nine point. Nine percent yeah. It is incredible love ninety nine point nine percent did not love this one really okay. So let's talk about that because so for those of you who don't know. I literally just discovered this producer this morning. It wasn't bad it wasn't feeling slow. Slow Ralphie may right. Okay that makes sense so Katryn Nada you guys. He is a Montreal based producer. He's produced for some big time artist like chance. The Rapper Alicia Keys Snoop Dogg. Patrick Lamar Send A wop dogs. No up who says that I do. That's not how you say Snoop Dogg. Uncle Snoop Kendrick Lemaire. Oh my God I don't know what language you speaking right now. Back to K Tanada per. Don't like God rapper. So Nada. He emerged in the music scene in the early two thousand. How'd you said You doesn't ten twenty times? Yes it's so weird like anybody's So ever since he blessed the world with the record just mention which has its I W album ninety nine point nine percent in two thousand sixteen. She's been a highly recruited producer price and he got a lot of pretty much fame off that record I was able to listen to a couple of tracks and ninety nine point nine percent because I listen to Bubba. Which is the name of the album the electronic album that we're discussing today BUBBA Ninety nine point nine percent was released in two thousand sixteen just so we don't confuse you guys and actually has I w album ninety nine point nine percent won that year's Polaris Music Prize so he actually was recognized for his work and ninety nine point nine percent. But let's get back to Bubba because I don't want to keep using them and going back and forth definitely listened to ninety nine point nine percent but for the purposes are discussion. We're talking about BUBBA case. He just released. And it's the newest record lies with the album cover because it's creepy and I liked it with like ice blue eyes to pupils. I Dunno it caught my attention. I think that's actually why I clicked on when I was going through apple music. I clicked on that page or his little picture because I was like. Who is as guy with creepy is But no I. I said it's very different what I normally listen to but what I also WANNA gravitated. A lot towards his record is because there were a lot of arm be artists that were featured really interesting features. Yeah like his guest list on there. And that's actually a lot of critics are saying that like his features on there were a great fire features like Macedo winning talk about him in a feature podcast. I'm obsessed with Sago Sir. Kelly cheesed to NAS. Shame for Williams just to name a fee of my favorite features on a Bubba to something funny. This morning when I was looking at the show notes I was going through my email and I got an email about a G. Q. Article where they interviewed Kitchen Nada about how he got all the people reading an article about how he got all features on his record. It's always kind of interesting to read those like how Artis Kalab like. What's the behind the scenes at how they actually like get to work together? So check that out of you. If you follow Chiku kill but yeah I think I like the so much because it's slightly different to what I normally listen to. It's like like I said artists but with an electronic dance element instrumental like twist which was really nice like. I literally loved US album from front to back. I was surprised I was actually surprised. I liked it this much. Some of my favourite tracks were to the music featuring Iman Omari go. Dj Featuring Sir ten percent between collie cheese VEX OH featuring gold link are repented and eight nine fly so it was actually pretty hard for me like I mentioned. That was one that I may have enjoyed some. I definitely made it through the whole record. Yeah but so. What was it for you that like did a really was afraid that you're like no. I felt like it kind of like. It didn't feel focused. He kind of went all over the place stylistically which is funny because like night notes that you really liked And what I mean what we mean by like his range everything I thi-. It was like flawless. Like it's crazy how. We both like interpret music so differently but for me. I really liked how you said. It's all over the place but for me I liked all that includes inclusivity for instance. I don't like that it's just that it anyway. I don't need to defend myself. No no I just inclusivity. It's yeah no no no I get. I get what you're saying like I like that. There was a touch of Columbia and midsection featuring for Williams and Goumba is like a type of Latin dance and then there's also touch of Afro Caribbean sound with vocalist and Vex. Oh and that one's like one of my favorite tracks on this record that sound a couple times vary slightly like not too much this tasteful. We'll give him that. Yeah very tasteful. And I like how. It's almost like he uses these features and their vocals as an extra layer to his music. Their vocals are overpowering. The instruments like the beats in the background of these two right so it just adds an ex like texture do the music which I was able to appreciate so I loved it like I honestly. I'm so surprised I'm reading this and nine nine hundred. Yeah like I really liked it. I really liked it so definitely enjoyed it. It was just too long honestly. Think so around thirty. I was like okay. I'm done with this and then there's still twenty minutes left like it was just too much for me. I don't like records. That are that long. I want something a little bit more brief. This was only like even just a forty minute record. I would've been happy. That's interesting I mean. Yeah I think sometimes too like I'll just look like how long it is. I'm like Oh my God like. Why is this a project so long? Because it's fifty one minutes that you looked at the track lengths on the medal record. And Oh my God I was like twelve minute long. Why Yeah I can totally sow kind of like tunes you out because obviously if it's too long I I'm the same way I'm not gonNA listen to the whole thing but I thought it was a very cohesive project I love him highly. Recommend bubba by Katryn OUGHTA. I would recommend it as well but I would also recommend his first record. Ninety nine point nine percent. Yeah I actually would too so cater audits on the come up. Like I'm sure like he's barely taking off. This barely has second studio album. So we'll see in the future years what he has to offer to the music industry. Yeah so I think that about covers it for today. We talked about the new tame. Impala we talked about volume only my thoughts by loving we talked about toxic planet by Cobra man and we talked about Bubba by overall. I think we would both say that. We recommend listening to every record. We talked about today just depending on what vibe you feeling so we actually a little bit closer on our like Genera today without me meaning. Yeah bubba definitely has a kind of like. I don't know like a mood that it's going four and like all four of the records that we picked all felt very like moody right like all kinds of on a similar spectrum. Like if you like this type of music like you might be able to get into any of these records. Yeah like I was able to get into at least like and your pets like one. Two three songs I was able to get into it But by far my favorite pitchers when the I obviously picked Granola by like I liked toxic planet. Like like I said I've your pigs. Allen's I like the eighties vibe yeah well. Why don't you guys listen?

It might be time. My name is Kevin Pokka from Tim. Impala just started working on this album and I had no idea what the album is going to sound like so I started working on this song and it was definitely just the creative trying. Whatever phase which I think is important. These songs would coming off the back of doing a bunch of Labs so this is kind of what I was saying to get back into With myself again which is nice. I guess chatting with other people that can be kind of an anxiety that it's not going anywhere. One of the reasons I like to work a line is that it doesn't matter if you spend twelve hours and getting away this is up to kind of separate yourself from the end result being perfect. I remember the first color jam having myself playing around some chords on cable. I kind of like it to be a sound that have been used before because I feel like it's a more fertile ground for thinking of new things having you sound so you use the same sound twice. I think he kind of gravitate to the same thing you've done before and then I just kind of jumped on the drums. Just record over the top of that slowly trying to find something. I like to think that things that I arrive at musically and sonically are Serendipitous happy accidents and this album. I wanted to allow that to happen even more but I like to have drums sounding good off the bat because a bedroom sound familiar the lace inspiring thing. I count on Song in wanted. Just record drums for messing around. It's still kind of is like sound. That dialed in so after this down a little bit that I liked and my dental kinda built the song around that. And what's funny? Is the final drums on. The song are actually those drums from the same. Emma just chopped up and processed going to reopen like late. Nineties chopped up drum brakes. Sound but like smash Moore stem for those drums early draw. It's kind of funny to switching between the two. Does that happen? How do you get it to sound like you're playing the drums? Eight thousand pounds harder. Just lots of tricks that question in itself making the drum sound like that accounts for most of my life in the the sounds in this song I love on their own. Almost everything in the chorus is distorted except the keyboard. Pot by says distorted. Drums at a store. Did that lead line. That comes in is distorted and has one of the Nollie seen devices of a lady solar that and the drums. That's the best. If you feel on on I like to write a melody of codes that are stuck in my head. I mean like get them rock-solid ahead the important thing is to digest the cords. I so I replayed them on just like a spice doubt synthesizer and I might have been at Lupu. I just had a guy old. I every day all-round wherever I was always walking around. Have it blasted the studio doing what I'm doing dancing around? I don't know and I don't know what possessed me but I just started singing. The Hook Kinda sounded like someone teasing someone Anna Anna so then I thought it could be cool to make it like your own subconscious tasting you. And that's why like a mommy. Tom Suffice it came from a bit. I had this idea for clip of someone going around live their life and these leg almost Gremlin like kids just jumping out from behind corners. When they're trying to do something cool they're like trying to skateboard down. A hill south thing and levies kids run out and dislike. Keep skateboard out and seeing that chorus lyric to them. Because that's kind of how I- Ciller is like internal Gremlins at that point. I felt like it had this kind of Rock hip hop almost thing like something that any ID would do you know how like they like rock. But it's clearly hip hop song even though it's like distorted guitars and distorted drum kit. Once I've got hall thing of music where I love how it feels. It takes a lot for me to be able to go in Rot. Something new for to add to like. I just love the idea of taking everything that was from this like six our time like just like one session the studio where I just had. This burst of ideas. I love the idea that everything is in. The song came from that little burst of creativity. So this one I was like. Oh I've got the cords that I wrote in that and I liked the wondering nature of the cords so I was like that could be worse. There's something about like an unexpected chord. Change or unexpected timing of change. That just doesn't for me. Just kind of subconsciously gravitate towards codes on Arizona's dis- but good vocals make sense something. The song starts with deciding to go home early because I thought we will done that. And for whatever reason those have always been a source of defeat familiar like fuck guys out in the hoover on the way home. You're like maybe I'm not gonNA partying after all. And then the chorus comes in slamming leg. You've lost it boom there. It is like the punching. I but also that you know this song was also meant to be playful and almost Kinda tongue-in-cheek is earnest. But it's also kind of funny lighthearted our member that's kind of what may my brother used to tease each other about in school. You know I like you picked you. Picked the right man like that. Get under the skin. See that's the thing about this song. I wanted to make sure that it wasn't specific to any kind of situation or edge or anything. I'm thirty four so I could be thinking that. But then like someone that's sixty four would be thinking the same thing and someone. That's twenty four and fourteen and his cools. Used to me now.

"This message comes from n._p._r. Sponsor xfinity some things are slow like a snail races. Other things are fast like xfinity x. by get get fast speeds. Even when everyone is online working to make wifi simple easy awesome more at xfinity dot com restrictions apply hello and welcome to car talk from national public radio with us in fact. It's half brothers. We're broadcasting this week from the a ugo by any other name would smell as sweet department here. Remember a couple of weeks ago. We had a call from a guy named robert. He was from saudi daisy tennessee. He bought a used truck and as he was driving away the former owner shelter cheltenham take good care of mark so so the former owner had named the truck mark exactly and robert wanted to change the name and we said robert catelli i mean we've never named any large cars well <hes> well that led to an animated discussion which then spilled onto the website about whether cars should have names and where the people who name their cars in fact treat them better and i guess you have a sample of some opinions offered. Is that right. I i do i do and people had strong opinions on this stuff. Okay here's one by our very nature. We care about things with names when i was younger or my sister and i would pick out lops at the supermarket and my sister would have no problem boiling those suckers and once cooked attacking them with the a kind of instinctual savagery that would have made a caveman proud. I remember one day on the way home from the store. I named the lapses todd and maude <hes> and for years. My sister was unable to look a lobster in the face. Let alone eat one or k. I guess that's why parents named the here's another one. You should absolutely not name your car. I named my triumph triumph t._r. For sports car after my wife and it tried to kill me twice the first time it rolled completely over over at the grand speed of twenty miles an hour and scared my dog half to death then it rolled again on old route sixty six in new mexico i have had numerous cars and trucks since then and never named any of them and i've never had an accident since goldfish. Wow i'll read one year. Yeah my inlaws at a car. I don't know the make or model that they <hes> that they named true love because they said true. Love never runs smoothly my favorite car. Your name was a nineteen seventy four chevrolet impala owned by a friend who named it vlad. That's right vlad the impala. Instill that if you want impala owners last one. Tom don't name their cars <hes> well. How many times have i heard rapturous wistful sighing about a sleek black beauty yeah well. That's not a name. That's a description of a magnificent vehicles black. I don't every time you say it man. You always get lased oval oval. Look at eight minutes. Well the rest of it hanging on my mind. It's interesting that that someone should bring the sleek black beauty because listen to this suggestion. You're ready yeah. Hey guys why don't have a contest to name your solis cars. Put up a picture of every car you've owned and give the carta community the opportunity to name them. We all know you well enough over the years of listening to come up with some some suitable name all right your own nomenclature breath new do that look promising to adopt any of the names no especially in any names with box box. I'll look if you have any questions about your car. Give us a call at eight eight car talk. That's eight two two seven eighty two fifty five. Hello hello. You're on car talk. Hi my name's mike. I'm from hudson wisconsin name. Does you carve a name. No ooh what's up martha okay well. I was home for the summer. I'm a college student but i went home <hes> for the summer and i'm the oldest in my family. My family owns a some really big nine thousand nine hundred eighty eight chevy van like twelve passenger and its purpose is for family. That's ask because we can all fit in it so i'm driving this thing over the summer and every once in a while it will honest an act like it's out of gas you know where it just stops moving forward and goes and you cannot like the steering wheel gets a little hard and i mean you put the gas pedal to to the florida does nothing but my brother and i figured out that okay so you put the gas pedal to the floor and as soon as you lifted up it'll van jerk forward so we would just pump take out of the gas pedal to get over to the side of the road. Turn the car off. Let it sit for a little bit and then turn it back on and it would run and it was every once once in a while the beginning of the summer but it would become more frequent and my dad kept saying oh it was just we just put gas in. It and i didn't know that people sold bad gas but also the the <hes> bad guest. Yes and we usually avoid those but last time. I don't think that the the final straw that was my mother was driving my sister back down to school and she goes to madison they left the house and they weren't gone for fifteen minutes when they came back and mom's like no way did it three times and we're not going to try and drive this for hours. Dunn pattison off chicken. He had a big trailer on the back to this has been through. I can't even tell you i mean years this van again. Ninety ninety eight in all this time that it has misbehaved has the check engine light ever come on and stayed on check engine light no no i. I hate to say this. It sounds like a good old fashioned ashen fuel pump. That's failing sure does this thing's got one hundred and some somewhat thousand miles on it. I'm sure so many many and fuel pumps don't lasts forever after all it is a little electric motor immersed in in the fuel and it's turning this pump and and from what you described i believe there's insufficient fuel getting to the engine and it could also be a clogged fuel filter but it's more it's more likely to be the pump i think at this point because if you do get it to run all right you can climb hills with it and all that when it's behaving well yes i think if it were the filter you'd have trouble doing on that okay so i don't blame him for not wanting to take it on that four hour trips. She was going to school this semester. They ended up taking her boyfriend is literally only the boy next door and they ended up bringing up something with him so it'd be good excuse to take the semester off in reruns of mr something but i think it's i think it's the fuel pump and i'm i'm agreeing with my brother for the first time this week <hes> i can't get enough. I just didn't want to leave my little brothers and sisters in a vehicle that was going to get them in an accident car. It doesn't sound like anything terribly serious and something relatively selena expensive to replace but that's just that's bad gas. Okay yeah. Thank you so much. Let us know what goes where it would be interested to yeah. No sullen that we're right. We'd like to get some feedback when we are seeing martha. I eight eight eight cards. That's eight eight eight two two seven eight hundred fifty five year on car talk. I'm rachel. I'm finding you from austin texas. Hi rachel austin you array castle her. You know the texan now. I'm not i'm from england. How did you wind up in austin texas. My husband worked in montreal and then got transferred dan here to texas. There's oil in montreal. No no you're right computer industry now. He mayday castings really oh franklin mint parts for car radios and that's the jaw by one dan visited the knob that the north and all that was good that was a big was it was a big it was one of the biggies and if you were invented the knob you beyond easy street now everyone oh yeah so anyway rachel even what's up rachel. I have a ninety five cavalier and it's done one hundred twenty thousand kilometers yep <hes> and when i'm driving home from work i have to go down a hill turned on to the right and occasionally as i'm shifting down gear and turning to the right the steering role totally sees and then the friend april that i carpool with we're kind of coasting intuit's the hedge thinking turning. We're not turning and it's a bit of a concern really sure your cavaliers this again. Ninety-five it really really yes. It's a manual car so i just i'm on the brakes. Pushing the clutch take a deep breath and so this happened nothing stool or anything is it accompanied by any noises noises other than the screams of your past the screams of passengers well unfortunately what comes to mind is a problem that has plagued many g._m. Cars ars since the early eighties being that faulty rack and pinion. Is there any chance rachel that you don't have any policy steering fluid fluid during oh no. I'm sure there is because otherwise you'd hear awful noises. The steering would be difficult all the time but but <music> basically said to us that aside from this peculiarity that it behaves perfectly well. It's absolutely fine well. I suspect the rack is no good and i suspect it. It's a combination of the <hes> the load imposed on the rack by the turn by the by the hill and all the other factors a binding winding up the racks so that the iraq is actually binding on the bushings seriously. It's potentially serious because obviously you can crash the car that would be so it's serious from a safety standpoint and it's serious from a money standpoint. Oh yeah this is going to be several hundred dollars so save up all right well. Thank you very much good. Luck rachel and happy welcome to america see later by one eight eight eight car talk or one eight eight eight two seven eight two five five hello. You're on car talk yeah hi guys. This is lee calling from waterville maine haley. I spent spent a wonderful weekend. No that was waterville valley. Isn't that the same thing in new hampshire yeah. Ah is it cold air beautiful. Oh okay yes all right. Where's waterville maine then sort of in the middle part of the state. Now how come you don't have the main accent. I mean so i i've been away from home for about twenty years and just moved back with more than that repeat after me uh-huh we're going over to ban god to get some lobsters so what's on your mind. Lee retired mechanic. Mechanic and pennsylvania told me that when i changed u. l. in my car in order to make sure the engines clean i i should drain the oil. Put the drain unclog back in at a pint of kerosene to the engine at the plate of kerosene. Yes starting up and let it run for fifteen seconds then turn it off and take the drain plug off in the kerosene is sorta sloshing around in there and it's cleaning cleaning the engines hungry water theory doesn't that song i mean just the thought you can imagine it's got to be imagery involved you know when this imagery you you can see the kerosene splashing around watching everything off and taken all that other junk. That is the essence of the marketing. If something doesn't sound good you mean why did i buy my soba cow. Appel watch it at our personal and it sounded about the george foreman grill real that sounded great to the vacuum thing i got. That's the fun of us tiger all sounds. It was just like this is important however that if you ever do anything like this you gonna be hurting the we'll see what you don't realize. I mean what what the imagery doesn't tell you about is the fact that you're running. The engine now granted. It's only for fifteen seconds without any oil in it. Why would you wanna do that. Person is a lousy lubricant. It does have some lubricating properties aussies. Did you know i i've asked people <hes> mechanics engineers and they've all scratched their heads and said either don't do it or it. It sounds like it might work but but i don't know well i have to say that i fell prey to this very scheme almost once because i had a a g._m._c. suburban which which started burning oil and i had a choice of rebuilding the engine off trying every harebrained scheme that anybody is one theory of course i was drain out half the oil replace it with two and a half quarts of kerosene and run the engine for an hour and bacon immediate fifty. I say i'm going to give it a try. Frank and he says go far yeah so i parked outside and i- drain to quash oil and replace it with kerosene i thought the baby up and it comes up to temperature and the entire west cambridge area was enveloped in a cloud of white smoke. I mean this thing started blowing blowing smoke. I couldn't believe the amount of smoke. We're out of business for three days. No-one can but all the time that the smoke august pouring out what a what am i thinking it's cleaning out the north that smoke is a free up the ring bringing up the rings providing lifeblood to the engine and it may main look bad now renewing rejuvenating exactly so after an hour i drained out the oil and kerosene mixture and i replaced it with five quarts of beautiful new fresh oil continued to smoke for the next four years so this is one that i completely wreck. It's all right to use as a a last ditch effort at may free of stuck set of rings and if it doesn't you've lost nothing except a couple of course of karasin exactly because you're going to have to rebuild the engine anyway okay so we ended up taking his engine out and rebuilding the whole thing and the other hand if you have an engine that's running okay dow doan okay. This guy retired defrocked. Maybe well thanks for asking and welcome back to maine and thanks for calling okay guys. Thanks same later by two theories heart to kill. Oh i'm telling you yeah i mean i don't want. I don't i don't mean to sit a bad way but pons and fleischmann still getting lots and lots yes funding because they know why there's some little green the out you want to believe not even what you want them with this some little grain of validity in what they've done of course we don't know oh exactly what it is but those research dollars pouring in as we speak and i want to know is why. Can't we be part of that. We're not that okay well. Let's take a short break. This is where we allow our stations to identify themselves where we allow our stations to check the programming menu again and see if there's anything better. We'll be back in a minute.

We hit a disgust cars car repair and the super by yossi brothers well we got this ellen rice and her two kids forest age eight and paxton age five said we're sitting on top goldmine here because we've been forgetting and they did it for us. They developed a car talk video game and we have here the complete description of the game which i'll i'll just give you the highlights off okay. Let's give us like the salient point screen comes up to super mario brothers there. You have to choose a tool and you got a whole bunch of tools and then you go to level one level one their cars to be fixed. You can choose easy medium hard. You choose a car. You give the answer you give the right answers but the level two level to the mechanic almost run as through through a maze of a mob of angry customer to get out of the dead end. You have to throw money to the level three level. Three is a long dock tunnel to the lawyer's office. Mechanic cannock must have two thousand dollars to exit. The lawyers off at the level for the mechanic has a time limit of two minutes and yesterday fix a motorcycle engine for a biker gangster failure to pay ten thousand dollar hospital bill. I mean you can see. I i see the possibilities i could see it now. I can see it now too. Yeah i think it's great and one of the tools wallet so you can buy your way out of a hundred. You know oh that one of the tools is a wallet with a thousand dollars if you'd like to talk to our number is eight eight eight car talk. That's one eight two two seven eight two five five hello. You're on car talk. Hi this is bob from maryland from maryland. What's going on bob. I've got wonderful ninety five win star and we're heading up from mount rainier maryland up to allentown pennsylvania for the family reunion and the speedometer all of a sudden the dial the needle on the dow starts shooting back and forth and i'm i'm going about sixty and it's showing eighty and then a hundred and so on so i pulled over for or second and i'm checking the fluids and you know nothing's wrong so i hit up back down the road and i can hear a little worrying sound so i say okay speedometer cables probably broken and i ignore nor it and after a while and we've been going for about two hours here then the edge engine starts to stumble and kind of hesitate i maybe i'm going sixty five and eh go faster. It starts to stumble and i'm saying okay well. What's going on here yeah so when we get back a week. What was your so. Let's go on to the little voice no kane and during during this misbehavior check engine light didn't come on it did come awesome. What's it gonna leave that out of your little story now. We're got to see if we were on our toes. You're right. The light came on and pretty much stayed on yeah. Okay <hes> took it to my mechanic when he got back and he was pretty much stumped. He gave it a major tuneup. Oh he's stopped. He said well. I can't put a mechanic in in your car for four hours to drive around and see what it is. Oh he doesn't have to why i mean. Doesn't it still does it. Only does it at high speeds after like a couple of hours well. I suspect what's happening is is you have a faulty v s s. We have a vehicle speed sensor. Which is the thing that tell you don't have a speedometer cable by the way don't ask them to replace that because he won't find one okay and i don't know why it was making the noise but i know why another thing was misbehaving because you via sess was going out of range and sending wacko signals to the speedo into the computer and that's why the engine started to misbehave save because it was the the engine was traveling at the speed like for fifty five are miles per hour but it was being told that you are doing ninety so what what was it was changing. The fuel injection was changing the timing and it was making the engine run peculiarly for that reason and it's set the light when the thing cooled off it returned to normal operation and that's why the light doesn't come on unless you drive it on the highway so he needs to <hes> i would say just throw a vehicle speed sensor in it. That's gonna fix it okay yeah and the and the thing might be working at low speeds. It is working at low speed. No problem yeah the next family reunion. I mean you might be all right for year. So in the in my mother-in-law will be happy as can be will be coming to visit good luck ball but if he can't figure anything having replaced those words vehicle vehicle speed sensor okay vehicle speed sensor. Thanks a lot right. See you later okay bye-bye one eight eight eight car talk. That's eight eight eight two two seven eight eight to five five. Hello your car talk hi. This is holly. Hi holly go lightly well. That's how i got my name really yes. You're parents saw the movie. Oh no my my husband met me. When i was taking the bar of course <hes> in the sixties and in the sixties there were almost no women at the bar review course so if you were even reasonably attractive you were followed around so he asked me if i was running for office because he said he'd be happy to vote for me and he said it reminded him holly golightly likely what a line worked. I'm still i'm still in office. That's where are you from <hes> chicago chicago and we have a nineteen eighty-seven dodge colt we love it and uh when we take it in to be gas or to get to get oil <hes> we take it to one of these like jiffy lube type places and they always push you to have these flushes done like <hes> radiator flushed and transmissions lush and i never know if that's a legitimate thing or they're just pushing it to make extra money. It's a fad you know when we were kids. Our mothers gave us. I mean i guess what they call that right uh-huh the philosophy that can't hurt him right so i think it is just a fad and i will say these places that do these oil changes. I'm trying to drum up extra money. Oh come on the owner's manual says you're supposed to flush things at certain times and if that's the time then you should do it like like the most owners manuals suggests that every two or three years you flush the cooling system. I agree with that and to bet that if you if you if you went to this place regularly yeah or better still see because it's now it's the computer age they have everything on file yeah at a moment's notice yeah so they can tell well if they already sold you a cooling system flush i bet you if you went to quicky lube place number one and then six months when i went to quickey lewis place number two they they would tell you to do exactly the same things that the first guys already just all. That's why holly is correct in questioning. I believe you're correct to question because these guys are motivated by like greed. Only i should go to the owner's manual you say yes you should go to the owner's manual and you should pretty much follow what the owner's manual says okay. If if things haven't been done you can certainly research your own records and if things haven't been done then you might believe them. Beat be careful because my experience has been and in my opinion places like this try to sell you things that you don't need so i was thinking yeah. I guess i suppose that their rationale is hey look we're just reminding people that these things have to get done and if we're not forcing them today using the animal rationale in her hand hurt so if you change the oil extra time or you change the transmission fluid and extra at the time it can't hurt and it's true and will only hurt your pocket. It can only help them okay great. Thanks a lot one eight eight eight car talk or one eight two two seven eight two five low. You're on car talk carl from santa monica to be on your show curl with a k. or cow with c. What strategy would ask its car with a k. Thank you very much that interesting ons. You isn't that good that i asked so what kind of b._m._w. Do han-kon income strangely enough. I own a japanese car and <hes> like it very much. It's a honda civic and <hes> i. I story my problem. <hes> begins on very quiet sunday morning and <hes> all of a sudden we heard this kind of. I thought it was a a siren smoke alarm. I don't know what it was <hes> emanating from someplace. I didn't when you're driving along at no. No we were still in bed if you can believe it it was a wonderful. They say it was a wonderful. We were hearing sirens. That's good now right and so. I like fireworks to see fireworks. No well as you'll see <hes> it turned out that <hes> the doorbell rang and i came to answer it in my pajamas and it's one of our new neighbours that we just moved into this neighborhood an and she said <hes> your horn is running is is blaring leering yeah out of the blue. It just started for no reason at all and so i i look across the street and of course there's my little car with its horn just going like crazy <music>. That's it so i immediately panic manic. <hes> it's amazing what that sound does to <hes> iraq to the kitchen. Get a screwdriver. <hes> run out to the street pop. The you know i did get my keys over the thing get the hood open yeah well. You know i've got a screwdriver doesn't mean no good whatsoever. That's really the wrong tool for this job unless i was going to try and short the thing out or something i don't know but anyway so obviously that's not gonna help. I couldn't find the horn well enough quick enough. <hes> i feel like a deer with a spotlight light inside. I don't know what to do. I run back to the houses all in my pajamas and look for a a <hes> a hammer handle would have been better than screw that is true noel pliers there. You go good disconnected. The battery excellent won't by by which time every neighbor in the entire block is looking out the window. I think commenting on your pajau. I think it's a rather clever way to introduce. You should self to the neighborhood. I mean everyone knows who you are now karl. I'm the one that owns. Two out of the car was the horn civic u._s. Yeah so anyway way <hes> i i left it of course <hes> with the battery disconnect until i had to use the car and then found worn disconnected the horn put the battery battery cables back on got in the car and drove it around and i am the horned system is so simple. It really blows my mind to what could make this happen. I haven't hooked the horn up <hes> yet for fear that it's going to happen in a in a place. That's going to be much worse than then. You know a sunday morning well. You didn't even need exp- experiment. I i didn't want to hear that horn for another nanosecond and as i saying i i'm i'm still panicked about the whole idea. Let me tell you an interesting story which is related to the horn story of this again even yeah. I know it's wrong. I know i i i once lived in a part of our fair fair city here in boston and i it was it was a cooler coffee with two sugars. Go can't you on a couple of eggs over the line uh-huh and it was a cold winter night and it had been snowing for about an hour and it was like two o'clock in the morning. I was fast to sleep and i suddenly i like i like i like the wind blowing howling howling and all all of a sudden my doorbell ding dong saying well. I lived on the third floor at the time and i said who could possibly be ringing doorbell at two o'clock in the got it all wrong so i look out the window and it's completely quite quite those dock lights. The exploited snow is falling down pajamas. Just white curl. I walked on late three flights of steps and i peer out sight to see who could poss- kazuko buddy. They're not only then nobody there was born. Not only is nobody bit but the snow had covered on the front porch and there were no footprints you talk about the hair on the back of standing up. Yes wow z. And what had happened was exactly what happened the curls horn really a miniature barnum and bailey. Yes short-circuit the short circus. Isn't that an eerie story one time. How do you want from working on novel colette now. One of two things happened carl. Either your horn really got stuck or the problem is in the steering column aw man. It's like you say it's pretty simple simply consists of the the switch basically which is in the steering column in the steering wheel when a wire that goes to a relay l._a. Under the hood and then another why from the relay to the horn and that's it so here's what you do you go and you buy a new a horn relay because that's the simple thing to do and it's probably ten bucks and you have to get it from your honda dealer. Oh then you can spend all of next weekend looking for the horn really and you can do this in your pajamas so the neighbors will they'll associated with the <hes>. There's good old kyle. He's doing something good for the neighborhood. It's a good thing this didn't happen at two o'clock. In the morning like my little problem well will next time find a worn relate replace it and if and then you're going to have to do the test. I'll tell you right now. If you were to plug the horns back in to work i mean it won't blow. It's going to be fine right into next sunday morning and then i'm then i'm always driving the idea that at any moment moment the horn could come on on it so yes hanoch would set in. I think you should sell it know what you what you need. You need a pair of bolt cutters right in the front seat so when it happens. You just cut the steering wheel right off. That doesn't fix it. Let me just the relays now. This is really simple. It'd be really simple. It's really not easy. It's gonna cost three hundred bucks. It's not easy to figure out whether it's the relay or whether it's the horn button but if you're willing to experiment a little bit put a relay in that's cheap and you won't have to pay forty eight dollars an hour to some shop actually myself itself. Oh yes simple when you buy the relay at the dealership. If the nice guys they'll tell you where it's located off off the top of my head. No it's probably under the dash someplace when you find line with religious. Just take it out every night. All take the battery in the house with you karl. Thank you all right bye-bye hearkens stormy night well oh you should be sharpen your number two pencils and dust off the old peashooter your instead listening to us click clack known in detention halls everywhere.

Oh colorado durango high charlie rangel. That's right yeah ta tion. What does that mean. Do it uncle you know what. I don't actually know how come on. I'm supposed to know all the trivia about the name. How long have you lived in durango. I've been in durang for one year. Then your excuse oh well anyway charlie. What's on your mind all right well. Let's see i have two vehicles one domestic and one import two very different starter problems problems okay starting off vehicle number one the domestic domestic do that i yeah it's a chevy s ten blazer and it's a nineteen eighty six and when when i get in the car to start it let's see what would be the best description of the sound of makes i think chunk when i go to start it it you know power does go to it and it goes chunk just one time just one time and nothing thing happens all right got it so in order to in order to alleviate this problem i took the terminals off the battery and scrub them with a <hes> baking soda and water so very very good i learn olive oil or two and then i let it dry and hooked it back up and it has it's been starting regularly however last night it did do the same thing again but then after that loud noise chunk i i started it again and it started no problem so what's going on okay well. We don't know who gives carnival be all right. I have some ideas how we don't want to give the same answer. It's a to both so there. There are several possible answers here. Okay foreign veal mix and match all right. The foreign vehicle is a mazda rx seven nineteen eighteen eighty two and it's it's seen its fair. Share of the mild believe me yeah <hes> it. It's a very different problem because when i if i drive around all day come home park at <hes> the next morning get in and try to started nothing happens so i pop the pop the hood and look under the hood and pull on the wire that goes back to the starter yeah get back in the car and it starts no problem like there's nothing wrong. It happens all the time so that's that problem. Cool helped me out guys. Let's go to our be alrighty. It seems pretty clear that it could easily be a bad connection at the starter by yanking on the cable. You are at least for the momentarily that is improving the connection. Yeah it could well be that the that the connection action is really loose that thing goes down to a big bolt and it could be that that bolt is loosened pulling on it. You're making you're making connection. Oh <music> okay who'd be i mean. If you were interested. You could actually go ahead and take that wire off. There's a stud sticking out of the star right. Take the not off clean the lug uh-huh with sandpaper okay and put the nut back on and that'll by the way before you do this makes you you remove negative cable from the battery the negative cable from on the back because if you don't there's gonna be a lot of sparks flying down there and there's this very very dangerous set. Your hair on fire happened to my people always say. Is it very very. How can it be dangerous if it's only twelve volts and the answer is it's very dangerous because the twelve volts will never hurt you but you'll whack your head on quarterback so that's one possibility if that doesn't fix it then i would. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend a new starter. Oh that car. You're now the blazer car one car one. That needs a star only going to give the same answer but well i i. I think so too but if you're lucky if you lucky the starter may be loose. Oh wouldn't that be good. Yes it would yeah yeah. It would be good to start or completes its electrical circuit through its own housing block of the engine to which it is attached is ground <hes> so if the bolts holding it to the block a loose you don't get a complete circuit right but my brothers dreaming. I mean that's not that you. You should be so lucky would be that's a case of you should be so lucky okay. You're gonna need a starter for the tim. Oh boy yeah so. You may need to starters charlie boy. This just wouldn't be good one and you could take it out and put it in the other vehicle when you want to drive the other car. I'm sure they're all into change problem album yeah. I think you need a starter for the ten and you've got a bad connection on the on the eric onto the e._s._p._n. And you'll see the starter okay and if you could move it at all then heighten up the bolts and that's gonna fix that one all right oh you could also have a week battery. You know you mean attest that so i wouldn't go buying any stars until you have some tests done okay. All all right sounds good. Thanks guys good luck charlie all right. When you don't want bronco comes from means let us know our next caller. They should be able to figure it out. No don't always get in trouble trying to figure. This is another example of male. I think you know the answer. We'll a little because riley lives the he doesn't know the answer but we are latin scholars where med we're men do wrong goal must mean and dora during during during enduring and gory angle no. I think it's a cattle rustler doug. Thanks good luck charlie one one eight eight eight car talk or one eight two two seven eight two five five. You're on car talk. Hey this is cath when from griffin chasse yes he i._s._s. Cass elliot mama cass elliot then if you say that then we know how old we are that we griffin georgia yeah. We were south of atlanta. Donna and i'm so excited to finally gets you guys. I've been i've had this problem for years but it but it now it's escalated into a marital dispute and and i just know y'all can straighten this. We don't like to get problems in the early stages because they generally too easy at we like things to deteriorate to the point where the in laws are involved falling down around. You haven't got them involved was out involved that they give it to us. I need some background <hes> for work reasons. My husband and i lived apart for seven years. We just got back together in may of this year and we have this problem. <hes> we now have four cars. We've acquired for vehicles and my husband says we have a he doesn't want to have a fleet you know insurance reasons and maintenance and yada yada yada and of course the car that needs to go is mine and i got it here. What is your car okay now. I wanted to give you the list of them. I have an eighty seven grand dam <hes> <hes> it has one hundred sixteen thousand miles on it. I would get rid of that one. What the other ones i don't care. I would never do that one anyway. The other costs okay the other one eighty seven grand dam then we have a ninety one caprice chevrolet caprice classic. That vet has sixty eight thousand miles on it. It's it's a nimitz. I i can't drive it very well so huge. It's it's yeah yeah. It's like an aircraft carrier jimmy. I'm i'm having a hard time with getting drafted then. We have an eighty four c._j. Seven jeep that's my husband's toy. They told me to tell y'all that it's a restored collectors and that can't go even though it should. We know that we know that's that's untouchable baby. Even though it's it's the worst piece of junk ever may have no only worse as the eighty three eighty. They have to pass on him. He's sitting here 'cause we. Both agreed. We would abide by your decision. Last lease is a ninety three ford one one fifty pickup truck. You got to have one of those in georgia. How many do we have to get rid of one. Just one and it be mine. I mean that's which one is yours. Mine is the eighty seven grand. That's the one that's brain. It's a no brainer. It's a no brainer. Absolutely that's how my brother came to the yeah and she runs like we don't care well. We're unencumbered by the thought process any facts of those four vehicles. There is no doubt in my mind that the grand dam is the one that has to go the larger consideration is the following. You have double g._m. Representation station here don't that you'll have one g._m. Car one chrysler car forward and that's only fair in that is is fair. That's the american way. It's america yeah so i think it's pretty clear that you have to dump one of the g._m.'s and why would you dump the ninety-one <music> caprice because it's so big variance. I'm having a real hard time getting used to it. I don't know where the the right front end is. You know it's william but now i i see a pro. I think we may have jumped to a conclusion too fast here. I think that we were not men. Sensitive men and it's just i've just been. I've just been shocked. I just had to give myself a little dope slap here. I realize we have here a pickup truck. Which is your husband's men's. Eh jeep which is why we got a caprice classic which is a morons and we got poor. Little cast who probably weighs eighty-one pounds the grand one hundred and eighty grand am is the only vehicle of four that is somewhat reasonably sized rally where it is on the road. Yeah i will have to agree with my brother here that because you have been insensitive because the jeep is clearly the the vehicle your husband drives xactly and so is the pickup truck imposing. Here's why should he force you to drive the caprice. You should drive whatever you want. Thank you okay and if you sold the caprice then you could spend those thousands of of dollars fixing up the grand dam or how about this. How about this high voltage both so i'm both defying nice toyota corolla. We talked about that and he said well we. We don't want a car payment. You know and blah blah blah. Let me won't have sold both of these. You might be able to buy a couple of year old camry okay. You're on camera. I mean you don't have to have a camry but the basic theory here here is if you sell both of those see the eighty-seven grand damn it may you may think it's running like a dream but it's it's a dream but it's sort of a nightmare and if it is a dream you're gonna wake up from this dream like tomorrow morning. Sweats three lose a couple of times. Yeah i mean the grand is is not a great car so i would say i mean it's the right size car for you. I say we dumped a caprice classic. You'll get a lot of money for that. Maybe two three hundred bucks walks. Thank you and then sell the grand and buy something else. Whatever appeals to you whatever you can afford there are plenty of things around like the fair and equitable way to the treat this i think so too and because they'd have really gotten to be a sore point. Isaac the decision should be entirely yours. I think so and let us know no if anything if anything bad comes this will help you find a new fellow. I appreciate that all right. Okay thank you.

Announcer (Adam Sartain) - Serious Interview

"Hello, this is Daniel Direction. I'm the producer for Undead radio. And today we are here with the announcer from the show and are serious interview. Hi, and how are you doing today? And where are you calling from? Glad to be here. I'm calling from Korea Town in Los Angeles. Do you live in Los Angeles? Are you just visiting? Oh, no, I live right here. Been here for quite a few years now. Oh, oh, okay. Where are you from originally originally from Sacramento, California? Okay. All right. That's awesome. So tell me how did we meet? I think the audience wants to know. How did we meet? I do a lot of voice-overs. So I look for as many opportunities as I can and this was posted opportunity on a Facebook group. I believe and I answered it and submitted an audition which wage Apparently I won so great and maybe the people don't know here, you know, we actually had two million submissions to go through and we picked off our announcer here. Yes. I was very excited to get this opportunity. It was how many times did we have you do the casting call? It was what twelve time at least 12 times. Yes with if you include call backs and everything. Let me ask you what how did you start out and voiceovers announcing and hosting I started doing voices when I was very little but getting into a voice overs probably I've been doing for at least about ten years now which started with doing a imitation of Ed Sullivan on a music video of All Things Are you able to do voices on command? Could you do Ed Sullivan for us right now? Well, I guess I could he said Only big sharer no, no not Vincent Price and Sullivan if you want Vincent Price now, that's another 160. I was really good. Yeah. All right. Well announcer seriously though. How did we actually meet in real life though? If I remember correctly. It was wasn't it through the audition. We actually met before all this we met at the what was it called Hollywood horror Fest. Yes. That's right Hollywood. Horror Fest in which I was the MC Kenzie. Yes, which I've done two years in a row. I have not I didn't do it this year because it was all online. But yeah, I've done the Hollywood horror Fest and boobs and blood Film Festival two years in a row, very good people great people which I met through a dead. Organization called the table tell me about the table. I'm not familiar. The table is an organization of people in the industry actor's voice actors musicians director producers Etc. And it's a By Word of Mouth people help each other basically, if a producer wants actors or a writer needs a producer or etc, etc or director needs a camera operator people reach out to there's an email list and people help each other a lot of my gigs. I've gotten have come directly or indirectly through the Tame Impala feels like a good organization. Yes now regarding this project, what would you say would be your favorite part of it that you've heard. Oh my or or how about this? How about a favorite memory related to the project? I hate to I hate to say it, but just, you know recording my lines just has a dog. An absolute fun cuz in in my many many auditions that I've done I've done a lot of radio ad auditions and just being able to actually record some real radio ads for a fake radio show has been really fun. I've had a lot of people contact me already and they're saying I love your radio station, I listen to it all the time and I am trying to figure out where they're coming from cuz this radio station does not exist. It's it's a show might be but you know, it must be that good if people are fooled that I think that's a that's a good point right there now about you, you know, I know that many people believe that way down seing is challenging to the point that it becomes overbearing and too much to handle. Why do you think people believe that and what separated you to become a successful announcer? Well the Thursday About announcing is learning to enunciate properly and to be able to read and not just, you know, read the words but be able to read ahead ahead of the words know what you're going to be saying a lot of people in voice over and which is voice over in general is a very large swath of industry, but I am announcing in particular you really need to know what you're saying and know how to say it especially with names if different people have different ways of pronunciation for our names and luckily I had helped with graduation ceremonies back when I was in college learning the names ahead of time, you know, they hand you a card and that's what you that's what you got to work with. So trial by fire. I guess you could say but lots and lots of practice as with anything practice makes perfect and when you have ten thousand hours long Anything you become an expert in it. And I over the years. I've definitely logged my hours. That's a Malcolm Gladwell says that 10000 hours and that definitely applies to voice over jobs. I've accumulated many different voices not just my announcer voice, but even being able to do different voices safer animation or or commercials, you know, I've accumulated seventy five different accents voices Impressions, etc for me a lot of my impersonations when I'm you know, hanging out with friends or whatever everything turns into Mario from Super Mario Brothers. Oh, it's a me Mario. Announcer. What is your favorite word? Oh my favorite word. I'd have to say interesting. Oh, wow. That's I really like I said that lots of syllables interesting. It's a fun word to say too interesting interesting interesting. All right. I think that's about it here. Seriously though. Is there any other projects you want to promote while I've got you on here? Yes, actually we've got I'm involved with a Sci-Fi series that's being pitched to the major networks called space command space command and it's it's a really great show wage had some great kickstarter's for it and we don't have one going now, but we will sometime in the future be having another Kickstarter to keep things go wrong. So in the meantime look it up. We're on YouTube. We've got our website lots of big sci-fi names attached to it as well. So what's the website space command - the series.com. I didn't even know you could put dashes in. Url said School. Neither. Did I until recently? Awesome? Wow. So before we go, could you plug our show? Yes, absolutely. So all you listeners out there. Be sure to check out Undead radio Halloween special wherever podcasts are heard. I understand that you play an instrument that is not played very often. Could you tell us a little bit about that as well? Oh, yes. I almost forgot. I play the tuba. I have a YouTube series that you can look up called Adam plays the tuba and there are three seasons and dead. At least 40 different episodes for you to peruse ranging from ranging from the Jurassic Park theme to Super Mario Brothers music. Okay. So last real thing here. Can you do an imitation of a tuba being played? I like to make things a little tough sometimes, you know, just to test your talent out more often.

Got my brother travis with me as always and this is episode to for our year ends favorites of twenty twenty countdown. So yeah just just as a reminder just to put this back out there these are not in any particular order because we are trying to do the same where we're gonna treat it. Like a like a spontaneous mix taper. Dj sat or like that right. So i'm gonna play something and then queens going to pick something from his remaining picks. And i have no idea what travis is about to play. Yeah this is spontaneous. Last week i kicked it off right and i played three songs. Travis played too. And i try my best to pick matching songs but you know it is what it is but i think with this next one q my first pick today. I think you're gonna like you're gonna be able to flow with this one. I'm ready bro. let's do it so you know. There are certain things in life that are that. Are you know without a doubt right. Like for example. The sky is blue skies blah but did water is wet. A and one thing. I'm fairly certain of q. Is you're gonna love this on all right so i would classify these guys as psychedelic shoe gays. yummy. I don't know what kind of a name this is. But their name. The first part of the name is fine. Karen k. a. r. o. n. Then it's semi-colon i. r. s. e. exclamation mark. What the hell's this dude. That's what i'm saying.

Sheikh my hand dude because my focus started vibrating. All right so cute. This disband like i said their names karen i. r. s. e. The album is called. Poly som- came out on september eleventh of this year and the song is called and bat none. That's my jam. Dude i will never get tired of this flavor of psych rock ever. Yeah i knew love did i just knew it so this is like the perfect like you said psych rock right but shoe gaze at all the all the right ways to. It's like a perfect blend of shoe gays and psychedelic at that wall. Sound wall sound. I love the like the contrast of the vocals soft breathy classic cashew gays vocals plus that wall of sound and the psychedelic flair. That the attitude like it's a great great like balance. You know what i mean. Yeah and that drumbeat. That drumbeat is as a perfect like right. That psych rock pocket. I don't know i like. There's there's a certain kinda beat that goes along with his style of music that i i'm a huge fan of it. It's usually pretty simple and always just keeps driving forward and the song Yeah didn't i love it. Love it yes.

The combs say one racing one law. You can't help it move around the room. Did i know man and you had to play it to like. That was a four minute clip. Because he had to get back into the when he brings. All back into that groove. Yeah man there's just something about kevin parker. We did an episode on on on inter inter speaker Speaker yeah so you know. We talked about him as an artist. And all that stuff on that episode. But yeah he's just he's he's What is it like a triple threat. Or whatever they call more. It's like his vocals are fucking amazing. His lyrics lyrics great his his the way he composes his songs and melodies and stuff like that it's like he takes you on a journey every song as its own to use such a cliche but you know what i'm saying. Oh yeah it's a trip you know he's taking a trip really for sure. Yeah and so. I listened to this album at first came out. And then just kinda shelled it and forgot about it and then i reconnected with it. During the lockdown the first go round you know in april or may and the lyrics struck me different. Did with the circumstances now he wrote well before covert head but these lyrics do. Why just kinda like i could relate to it at the very end of the first verse. He says were on a roller coaster. Stuck on. its loop de loop first off. I love that. I love the way the line to yeah. We're on a roller coaster. Stuck on its loop de loop because what we did one day on a whim slowly becomes all we do. That's what it felt like to me dude. Every day i'm like well. What am i going to do today. Oh stuck in the house gonna do the same thing one thing that we did on the whim now. This is pretty much all we do. Now the am an this'll the whole year has been her all stuck on on this loop de loop or on a rollercoaster. We're never going to get off this thing right. Yeah and then down here says but it's okay. I think there's a way. Why don't we just say one more year. Not worrying if i get the right amount of sleep now not caring if we do the same thing every week get stuff dude and it just it just fit so well with like our circumstance and it's funny because nobody saw this. Obviously he wrote these songs. Yeah who knows win so like it's just funny. How lyrics can be interpreted same with What's the name of the new strokes album. The new abnormal. Yeah anyways so. That is a no brainer. Tame impala will always find a way on atop song list for me any year. The tame impala Record it will. It will show up on a filler countdown. Recap episode at some point. I was so excited to hear dude news. Funny like the first line he says. Do you remember. We were standing here a year ago. It's been a few years in between currents and slow rush. But i thought of it as like okay. You remember that also mound my relief years ago. Climb back baby. Hey we are yeah and it was an interesting record we could. We could probably due to an episode on the record. Yeah there's there's other songs in this album that almost made it on this list. Yeah all right anyways man moving on so passionate back to you what you got for us. Okay i think this is going to be actually a pretty good flow from that song i. So here's the thing. I brought this guy to an episode back in as my what you heard. It's as vapor wave artists. That goes by the name equip. And if i were to pick an album one album that that represented Mike my a like music and twenty twenty for me. He would be his record. They came out in two thousand sixteen called dreamed of a palace in the sky. I had to find a way to to to showcase equip on my twenty twenty List so did you write him a letter and say hey brother. Could you like releases single this year just for me. I did actually ride him on bank asked was. I asked him if if they're going to repress that record 'cause it's sold out on vinyl so i did i did talk to. This guy is a cost play king. I think his whole life is maybe a cost play. It's a good thing that you brought that up. So yes if you look him up images of this guy he does 'cause play But that is a character that he's created so like i said with that record that i mentioned It was a concept album about a like a like a japanese. Rpg video game that never existed right So there's this other artists that kinda runs in the same circle him it goes by our two-three x and they have started putting out The they have this project that they're collaborating on Which is that the name that they're that they're gonna go by kind of funny. It's called the. The nameless dreamers are two three x also has his own character that he's come up with its super nerdy guy. Let's let's just put that out there but but hey nothing but respect yeah so exactly so all right so we're going to listen to the song that they collaborated on called airship theme parentheses. Fast air travel so think about the name of that right airship theme kind of similar to their record. I've talked about by some of the names. They seem like they would be the names of like a level in a game they would play or like something that happens Like for example fast air travel right. So imagine you're playing a video game and there's a cut scene where you're traveling by air but like that. This is the song you might here on this. You know fictional video game. That doesn't cost anyway. So we're gonna listen to this It's called airship theme fast. Air travel is a single by our two three x and equip doc Scraped you'd yeah. I'm looking forward to the rest of the the record that they're gonna put out together because it's a lot going on there and it. Yeah bike it makes you wonder like what am i listening. What parts of this are sampled. What parts of this are actually recorded instruments. That they're using will yeah. This is yeah. I mean that's equips whole thing right. He's a he's a he. You might say the word hip negogitated uses the same equipment that that The game composers may have been using back in the nineties or something like that for some of these. Rpg's that came out obviously more to it than that but he is some low sound. You're hearing sound like video game scores. Mike that And i honestly haven't listened to two three x by himself. He's actually collaborated with equip on other songs. So i don't know what what he sounds like independently of equip. But that's kinda they're both in the same vein of that sort of Lo fi hip no contract there. That word again. There is low vitamin a gadget. Pop favor wave even but they're not bieber wave like most favorite wave. You know what i mean. They're in this other niche. But anyway i just. I love anything. That equip does a huge fan of his. So i just wanted to make sure. I could pay my respects to the man. Even though the record that i really fell in love with this year came out in two thousand sixteen but anyway that's a great track. I love that track. I'm excited to see what else they put out. All right cuma throw back at you. What you got for us her before we jump into our next to pick. Let's take a quick break all right dude. I've been excited to to share sa- music from this artists. I i heard her album this year. So this is a electric music artists. She goes by yogi yogi. That's her that is actually part of a real name names. Kathy kathy lee She is a american. She's born in new york. She's a really unique electronic arts. Like this is one of the album's for me. That i would put in like the top five as far as like most interesting unique. Just kind of threw me for a loop when i first heard it so. Her album is called what we drew. It came out in april and It's it's another one of those examples of kind of i mean a collective in a way. She has a lot of her friends and fellow artists that collaborate with her on this album. Yes oh so. There's a lot of songs on this record. That really stuck with me through the year and just a few songs could've picked but this is one of my favorites on on the record. I mean of course it is. Why it's on this list but Yeah i think. I think it's going to flow l. From from your equip song so here is a song from your jeez album from april of this year. What redrew this song is called. When i grow up one to testing young vs tent taints foot. Clinton is a crazy new. Same attempt foot young expose taps to foot clinton because he same up taints fault Let cash s la man. I was also did like you said like Really grabs your attention. You know yeah really different did and like this is an album that you really gotta listen to With a good sound system because the way it's mixed dude the base just kinda fibers the whole room. Yeah the majority of the album. Yes there's elements of like of hip hop a little bit and there Yeah i like her. I like the way she loops The beats and her. She has another instrument. The funny thing is when. I saw the album art on your screen at thought. We were in store for another psychedelic ban because it looks like even her her her name the script what this time. The script as a. Yeah that display font. It almost reminds me of Artists the did all those. Yes album covers. Yeah it does exactly. That's why i thought it would be like the psychedelic. Prog rock not that now that yes was psychedelic shirts Via yeah man Really great album. And like i said from track to track this shit holds your attention really unique stuff. I'm real excited to hear what else is going to be bringing to the table here. So this is her debut She's she's been releasing little epa's in singles for the last couple of years but he had a surfers falling cool again. The artist is yoji. The album is what we drew. And that song was. When i grow up all right travis time to take us on home much you got for us all right so q. A little band called real estate Unite have been familiar with him for a while now covered them on our music blog back when they first started which was like two thousand nine is when they first started making music together man. I could have sworn there around for way longer than that. But i guess not did you right. I mean we did the municipal like over a decade ago. Which is insane me but anyway i fell in love with the record came out in twenty eleven called days. That's the one that i really sunk my teeth at me to. It's great someone there so these guys are best described as like a dream. Pop surf rock kind of their in that vein right and twenty eleven when all of that stuff was coming out right and they do it in all the right ways. Man do not that. It's not a carbon copy of all the same shit that was coming out around. The is unique. Yeah that's right. They have their own kind of Signature sound but you know. I think with them more so than the other bands are doing this back then they cannot have tapped into that like sixties gangly rock countdown to in some in some ways and some of the songs but anyway so this is their fifth record that they put out This year and this was two weeks after team impalas. A new record came out to february. Twenty eighth It looks like they collaborated with sylvan. Esso i'm a big fan of her. Yeah there's a single. The came out called paper cup where they collaborated with sylvan. Tool but anyway There's one song in particular that really stood out to me on this record and we're gonna have to split it into two parts because you have to hear the solo that happens at the end but This is going to slow down a little bit from the rest of the songs that we've talked about today. But what about this song is that it's and i think this record. They did some more sort of like you know the way they put it like. This was their fifth record. They've been together for over a decade so the last one came out in two thousand seventeen. His wife is pregnant. he was struggling with an asking. Like do i continue real estate. Like do we keep going with us. And he's just been working on these songs slowly over the last three years so it gets you know. They wanted to take some risks. They wanted to do some different things. And i think this song kind of an example of that because it's almost like a progressive rock song So yeah we're gonna play the song called also about a A us a Classic real estate but like it is. Yeah yeah i like how it is almost like like a miniature prog rock song you know like all these different directions and one song but it's not dry it hasn't drag on for nine minutes. You know right. So what's interesting about this track. Is that This is the first real estate song where it was primarily written and sung by the guitar. St- that's not the main singer that we're used to his name is julian lynch So one thing. I wanted to ask you because i know you're you're more of a Beach boys fan than make it real estate the way that they have They do their vocal harmonies reminiscent of some beach. Boy stuff absolutely an and let me. Can i just i feel like i need to clarify something. Not not you said that about about mean beach boys i i if i would call myself a beach boys fan but there are a handful of beach boys songs from like right before. Brian wilson went totally insane. That i really like. But yeah and it is i i. I could go the rest of my life without hearing their their. Surf's up sure era. You know yeah right but yeah no it. The way the brian wilson and i feel like he's probably the one that orchestrated all the harmonies. Yeah no the rest of the guys did their part but yeah. That's what i love about. Noah lennox or panda bear. How he he's harmonizing with himself. But he taps into that. Brian wilson yeah harmonizing and i just love it. That's one of my favorite things about panda bear song. But yet you're right. It's it's definitely that it's got that same flavor of harmonising. Yeah i've always thought that real estate in all of this stuff they of tapped into that style of harmonising all right. Let's skip to the end here. I just wanted to play because there is a really cool guitar guitar. So and it's not surprising that julian the guitar player wrote the song. Because he's like when he's sneaking this balanced guitar solo at the end. All right. let's let's listen to this guitar solo to close out here her Yeah did that really is like a pocket-size prog rock song. It was like a cliff notes. Version of like jerry garcia guitar solo or something but it lasts for twenty minutes. I mean it's yeah. I mean it's a it's jazz right. I mean that's a jazz it's like a. it's like a indie rock jazz fusion. Is that what you don't hear very often Via at those kind of kind of interesting that stood out to me on the record. I will say not to. I guess i don't have to do this. But i guess i will the record as a whole. I was pretty unimpressed. But the song is in the middle of the album and it just kills the ship. Did you got to listen to. If you're a fan of an artist and they put out a record you gotta listen to the whole thing because you're gonna miss perhaps the one song that's really good and worth hearing right so gotta stay committed. Yeah get them. I'm glad you said that man because it's what we preach. Yeah dillard's what we're the the basis of this. Entire podcast is the hidden. Yeah discovering the The hidden gyms the the non singles that go unnoticed a lot of times right riding records so anyway Yeah so that was real estate and the record is called. The main thing came out in february of this year. And that's going to wrap up this episode of our two thousand twenty countdown. So we'll have three more after this. Yeah so that's our our five for this week but we got to close out with another favourite twenty twenty moments in music. That's right so last week we had. Tom york's performance of plasticine figures on jimmy fallon show so we decided in in addition to our five picks each episode. We're going to bring a favourite musical moment from the year. Meaning like you know a performance like that. That happened on jimmy fallon or Something that may have happened on youtube or something. You know something. Basically probably wouldn't have happened. Had it not been for the strange situation that we find ourselves in as globe in two thousand twenty right the pandemic and how it actually brought really cool moments to music. They probably wouldn't have happened. Otherwise so is our pick for this week to even do your now. I got it bro. Okay let's talk about airland oria and the quarantine elgon zero. I want to talk about this album. And the circumstances that led to its birth another thing. That's no surprise to anyone that listens to no filler. We are massive airland oil fans. He is one half of the folk duo. Simon and garfunkel point to point now He's part of kings of convenience and He does a lot of solo stuff. He's also in a band called the whitest boy alive and he ended up releasing an album this year called quarantine at l. gonzo and the title of the album is exactly what it is and how it came to be right so yeah so the story is they they being airland and this guy named sebastian massat were booked to play festival in mexico. Right so this is back in march and they had shown up To this like resorts mike. That or this Something that they were staying in mexico city and then the festival was cancelled because a cove in nineteen and but here they were in this This space together and they found their way into so okay. I said resort. It was this hotel called the hotel. Algata the record is quarantine at algata. Apparently there's this Recordings two years. Mike that in this hotel Or the space that they were able to kind of turn into a makeshift studio and Yeah so it was a spontaneous album that was put together due to the circumstances that they found themselves in they wrote some songs that did as coauthor together and so again we know definitively that this record would not exist had it not been for covid nineteen and it produced some of this really great beautiful music such a great at umn dude and there's a lot of like just fun lighthearted songs on here you know you can tell that they had fun with. There's even a song at the very end of the if i'm not mistaken. Yeah sung by a woman named clara sebring on. She works at the hotel right so they just pulled her in and had her record a song with them. I don't know if she works at the hotel But she while the song is called keycard and it's all about. It was just like the lyric serve out like she's calling the front desk rookie cards at work or something like that right but again like just funny stuff that you may be spontaneously put together. If you're second i'll tell in quarantine you know what i mean. You're right in the sock anyway. Really cool stuff so yeah. We got a song play. In the as it's going to close q- i was gonna play wipe out the first track because it's it's a goofy funds on and i don't think so it's it's either orlando sebastien. Do you hear singing on these songs. Mostly just to i think sebastian's the one that sinks wipeout. Yeah it's shot. Yeah so. He's the one singing all right so That'll closes out. In the meantime you could follow on twitter at no filler podcast. You can find us on our website. Podcast dot com. We can find all of our previous shows with show notes and track list's and all that good stuff and you still have a couple of weeks to get your picks in to us. Let me go back to twitter for a second. We are reaching out to listeners. And previous guests who've been on the show and asking to asking them to provide their picks for twenty twenty favorites. And our last episode. In our two thousand twenty recap. Batch of episodes is going to be a collection of music for our listeners that submitted their songs wearing we're going to go through and maybe pick ten five to ten. There are some solid songs already on this list. Man i'm excited plam. There's been some Some dope ask submissions queue. So keep them coming. You can tweet them at us cues going on. Post are the i think maybe right now. I've got it pinned at the top by the way. Yeah so there's a tweet that has pinned to the top of our our no filler profile on twitter asking for submissions suggest reported to that and will throw it into the mix here and he never know you could be hearing. Your song played on no fewer. Hold onto your excitement. Second dream come true. I me anyway. So that's that and Yeah so we're gonna show at your next week I also have to mention this because we're contractually obligated. We are part of the pantheon podcast network. That is the podcast network for music lovers. So if you are a fan of our podcast chances are you'll find another show on that network that you would dig because it's not about music podcasts. So that has pantheon. Podcast dot com. Go check us out over there. And that's that next week we will have five more picks as we whittled down our top twenty and yeah that's it so we're going to close out with wipeout by airline oria and sebastian muschamp. And that's going to do it. That's it all right. Everyone thank you as always for listening. My name is quentin. My name is travis. Take care the first one. Parental the first one out there on the ways all my god surfing. I'll be the first one tomorrow. I want out there. i'll be glide. Oh my god surfing. So but in the morning when i bet loud no one thousand wide waters hit spots psychiatric race. Jive posture took behind spinning media. Rounds can't get. I am not for a second the gets calm.

And today, I'm interviewing Brock Noland and Jordan bird sell about a patchy coup. And how it is able to provide fast analytics on fast data in the hit Dubica system. So Brock could you start by introducing yourself. Yep. I'm Brock Noland, and I'm co founder data and Ben contributing to patchy coup. I don't know for a very long time since it was poor. It was even created publicly and also co author of getting started with patchy book Apache book, by Riley and Ben involved in the Hugo system for for quite some time and Jordan how about yourself Jordan bird, sell, and I've been involved in Kanda dupe space for probably seven or eight years now starting at state farm moving on through a couple of other companies before coming into data in that time. I became a Commissioner PM see member for patchy coup by creating the python client for going back to you Brock. Do you? Remember, how you first got involved in the area of data management. Yeah. Was was working at Thomson Reuters. And ultimately what we're trying to do at that point was. Sale up a website that they have. So so Thomson, Reuters I one of their core businesses legal research in the had a very old antiquated system. They really wanted to revamp it so it felt a lot more like Google when you do legal research. And so, you know instantaneous results like you search all the data with just natural language in. So we were basically taking this back end search system, which is built very similar to Google built internally and trying to scale it up like a hundred x and so in order to do that we had to take the performance metrics that the system on how his most performing also honestly, just log data in habit. So that we could run queries over that data very very quickly. And the data was at such large volume that we ran into dupe and started using duped store analyze the data versus we had been used. Oracle accident prior to that point and Jordan. Remember, he first got involved in the area of data management yet. So I started my career at geiko about eleven years ago working in their pricing systems. So that was kind of a mixture of both analytics and operational. Data management strategies, then when I went to state farm, I started in kind of a pure research passively with events Olympics, and and kind of what became the data science group, and then continued on that path in even at state farm moved into sort of operationalizing data signs applications and things to that effect, and then moved onto effectively the same thing at Stanley black and decker kind of would more of a cloud native approach. So can you start by explaining a bit about what the CU project is and the original motivation for building it? Yeah. I'll I'll go ahead and get started on that. So, you know, ultimately, what we found is there's a lot of use cases on top of do platform. It's very general platform used to solve a lot of different problems. Right. And there ends up being just a lot of use cases that require you know, fairly rapid modifications. The kind of like, I use case attached to that is slowly changing dimensions. So those are kind of like the least quick updates. I would say so they come in, you know, daily or even monthly and you know, alternately wrote it requires that we update some data in h s and there's a bunch of tricks on how or S three HDFS three is your Bob storage, whatever it is much tricks to handle those, but those tricks lead to complexity and that complexity. Inhibits the number of users that can actually use the platform. And so that was really kind of you know, one of the motivating factors for coup. And then another one is that you have all these IOT use cases or not like uses where data starting to become starting to come in as a a slow trickle or a stream of data as opposed to you know, in micro batches or even large batches in dealing with that kind of data. Ultimately, if you stick it in Ezra Serie or bomb storage, you have to compact that kind of data if you trickle it in in those compaction jobs are again, like just really boring to write first of all and result in complexity that limits, the use case limits availability of the platform until like, those two use cases, I think are really motivating factors for the platform. I'll jump in. Just kind of reinforced that kinda original reason why I got involved the project, and why my company at the time state farm was was very interested. In Khuda was was for that reason alone is the the level of complexity that are ingested any tail locations had grown too was just unmanageable. You know? We were having a hard time for one getting, you know, our existing data and ETL resources to to convert over to the skill set for one because the applications were complex, but it was just a huge shift. But then just the amount of development hours, we were spending trying to to make all these complex architectures work. When when something like who completely eliminates that problem, and you mentioned the Dubica system few times in the fact that KU was built to finish that the other components weren't quite able to achieve at least in a single tool. So I'm wondering if you can talk a bit more about how it fits into the Dubica system overall and some of. The other technologies that it's more commonly used with. Yeah. Absolutely. So ultimately coup is a storage system within the within the general do ecosystem in. So I mean that pretty broadly. There's a whole bunch of different components that are you know in the quote to do ecosystem in quote in. This is a storage system. So take columnist storage system that complements HDFS so on top of HDFS or S three or durable storage. You'd put you know, like Parque or or see on top of those to get like fast column or scans. And you know, basically, a competitor to that would be to use coup and in that competitive landscape, it would replace both HDFS and also the columnists storage on top. So it's both like a format in also a store. Orange system from very high level perspective. So it takes care of the replication on internally as well, and I would say to you know, there's also a little bit of overlap into h base with a random reads as well. But whose main focus I think from a scam perspective is on on analytic scans. So that's where the shift Esam on Parque piece comes in. Yeah. So kinda like the over arching goal of news to be like almost as fast as like Parque on HDFS for analytical scans. And then almost as fast as fast as h base for like signal Roget's and stuff, and ultimately that kind of meet in the center of those two use cases are those two examples. There's a lot of use cases that fit there. And then, you know, from a scan perspective, it's typically spark or Apache Impala that are used to scan. The database and in terms of other projects that sort of jumped out at me as in terms of being in a similar space as I was doing some research to prepare for the show. It put me in mind of the iceberg table format that's being built for hooking into the hive metaphor and the hive sequel interface some wondering if you can do some compare and contrast between the use cases that coup enables, and what is burgers, enabling or are. They just completely orthogonal to each other. Yeah. Good question. I can go first on howling. So yes, project iceberg iceberg and high acid are kind of what I would call slow motion to do. So they're built for handling updates really on that like slowly changing dimension side on. So if you had to have a trickle of updates, and you don't care how quickly replied, that's really weren't they fit. So they're kind of similar. Ideas, but coup because it also extends down into the storage layer can handle a much much higher volume of updates in. So you know, what we see is people you often using either a partial SSD system were full SSD host for for storing Khuda data, and you're looking at tens of thousands of updates per second on that kind of host on in terms of possibilities. And so it's a much, you know, it's built a handle much more rapid inserts and updates on the no systems were those systems are very similar idea. But really built for a really slow moving data. And I think the tagline for for iceberg is something like it's a table format for large slow moving tabular data. I think high vast is very very similar regard. And in terms of the types of use cases and application system design patterns coup lends itself to wondering. What are some of the ones that you found to be the most commonly applied and some of the most useful. Yeah. So I'll go ahead and give that a shot again, Jordan, please step in when you want in. So like coup is really really good at at is not data. So like what we see often is in this area with updates. But what we see often is I o t devices in the wild data streaming in in in very often. They're someone that wants to perform like per user queries on that data. So like, for example, customer service that wants to be able to to look at a particular user and inquiry those that data so they can help that user on the phone. And that also, of course, like you wanna be able to do Ana Lennox on that data over time across users right until both of those use cases who's really really good at in. So that's a really common just like home. Homerun use case that we we see for coup where you can store the data once fulfill both those use cases in data can be reading out seconds after it's generated, and then another one is is, you know, you have some relational system any want to basically, this is pretty simple, but you wanna basically MIR that relational system in your analytical system, but you don't you don't want this leg. So oftentimes, there's this lag were at night. We we do a batch copy of updates and stuff since crew can handle those updates in real time. We can MIR that relational system into the platform, and it's up to the second. If you will I was gonna jump in on that second one. So I I've spent a lot of time in data science use cases, specifically would would data science. You know, oftentimes do the because some becomes kind of your general purpose, application development environment or model training environment. And so these RDBMS. Offloads if he will or replicas kind of become quite critical to those projects, you know. Yeah. A lot of data. Scientists cases use images and things like that. But you know, they typically have to augment these use cases with relational data that's coming from ERP system. So the ability to manage that from an IT perspective in a clean way. Something that really does. Well, and in terms of the replication, would you be using a change data capture feed to be able to replay those events or are there specific support for things. Like right ahead. Write ahead. Log replication or the my sequel op log replicated for being able to populate those updates. Yeah. So from in terms of getting those updates in you know, that we really see that falling kind of outside of to do in the in the the tool space, and so, you know, things like stream cents or knife. I or cough connect all of those things are very common tools to ingest. Those those crop. Operations and then coup just away that we can really easily provide up to the second reflection of those crowd operations, and as far as the overall project design, I found it interesting that you decided to leave the interface as set of language bindings and support the Impala sequel engine rather than implementing your own sequel interface directly in the projects, I'm curious what the motivation was for that design choice. Like, that's the great thing about like, the Bronner had system is that there's you know, it it's basically kind of like a deconstructed database, right? We've taken databases poll the department so each individual component separate, and so we can have something like coup come in and just implement pretty small external user interface, and then we can integrate all the technology. News on top of that that one interface. So we don't have to do sequel. Right. Because there's already, you know, a whole host of sequel engines in the in the new platform in so, you know, I think that makes implementing coup a lot easier, and it makes it more it makes it smaller more focused on. So it can really focus on what it does while. So I think I see that as a function of the Doobie go system, which is a dissecting or dismembered database. If you will I'm versus the old world where we had fully vertically integrated databases, and does that design choice make than easier to join across the different data sources. So the rapidly updating information that's being stored in koo-do, and some of the more slowly changing dimensions that would be acceptable via hive or DFS or h base. Yeah, I would say, absolutely. So, you know, by by using something like. A query engine like Impala that can access all of those those different storage layers could included you know, or h s you know, it enables that query engine, you know, in that project team to to access enjoying those disparate data sources together whereas had developed their own query engine. You know that that may not have been as likely. Yeah. And I think like, you know, you can very easily especially with customers that are in the cloud like you can see this link. Pretty clear storage hierarchy where it's like, you know, data the changing over that speed ingested rapidly like makes tons of sense to be in coup. And then data that you're going to is going to be scanned. You know? But isn't isn't updating is being justed concurrently that that's really like an HD fasten Parque slash OR. See use case, right? And then from an archive perspective like data can be queried period. Medically you've got S three, which is, you know, quite a bit more latent from MacQuarie perspective. And in the even with us three. You know, you can basically get cheaper storage by degrading your access to that data all of that that whole spectrum can be accessed with Impala spark and in terms of the overall architecture of the CU project, can you dig through that a bit more and explain how for instance, the storage layer is architect it implemented, and some of the design choices that have proven to be most beneficial in some of the overall evolution of the system from when I began to where it is now. Yeah. So you know, one thing that's changing quite a bit within storage architecture is that like disturbing coming a much much faster from seek perspective. Right. So we've got SSD our seeks are very very low cost. And then you've got. No newer memory slash disc, type technologies like three x point on by Intel in. So ultimately, the the big reason why you in the past wouldn't necessarily have like a column near database that you could update, you know, in a very high rate is because of this seeks, and so ultimately that that's not a bottleneck anymore in. So crew is is a full column Nate base under the covers, and you know, is really built with the best of breed calm in coatings and impressions so forth. And so on internally in you can have a true commoner database that you can go in update a single row or get a single row, I'm very very efficiently because of that change in underlying storage technology. And and so that's like one of the key kind of like underpinnings from an actual perspective that that could was based on. On is based on is this underlying change in storage. And then another piece is that if you look at like CPU performance single core CPU performance, it's it's alternately kind of flat lining. Like, we're not Moore's law is is dead or or or dying right into like what very likely comes out of that is that like single core CPU performance for project is going to for for software is going to become increasingly more important as time proceeds in so was was implemented in c plus plus in has the has the the ability on from a roadmap perspective to take down projections and in filters from query engine so can actually apply them within the storage layer as as native code and so. Know, those two things I think are to kind of like underlying primitives that require building different database. He couldn't really do those things in an existing database, and they're not to kind of compare it to some of the other things we've been talking about. So like, it's on disk format coup kinda resembles Parque. I guess you could say or is very similar. There are some distinct differences though, particularly when it comes to kind of neighbouring the random reads like we talked about so that I can can kinda perform similar h base for the random reads. Yeah. The other thing know. You know, it's often in the same conversation as as h base and a lot of people feel or think of h bases like a calm database, but ultimately, it's not. So you basically end up creating in h Meza comb family that Colin family stores, a whole bunch of columns, and then if you read the h base best practices, they say don't create too many families. So you can't let critic confidently McCollum, and ultimately what that means is you're storing a whole bunch of columns together that are the same type, and you can't get these high or you know, you can't get these extremely efficient. You can't apply. These extremely efficient calmer in coatings on top of on top h base for for a whole, host reasons. One of them being it's actually not accommodate Abass. It's column family oriented database, which means it's it's more similar to a roaring today. Debase Mecom or today. Database in practice that same thing. Applies to Cassandra's. Well, and you mentioned that the implementation for coup is done in C. Plus, plus, whereas a lot of the other ecosystem components for dupe in particular. But also, the broader big data ecosystem has generally been Java, or at least JVM Runtime languages. So I'm curious what led to the decision of using plus plus for the implementation target, and what you found to be the impact in terms of system efficiency. But also development velocity. Yeah. So so the server component of coup is implemented in plus. Plus, there's also a C, plus plus client, so Impala, for example, is is probably the most prominent user of the plus clients. There's also a Java client in a python clients as well. And from a client perspective, you can kind of choose any language, obviously the. VM languages included in that. In terms of choosing C, plus plus on the back end, you know, really the driving force behind that was CPU efficiency. If you look at you know, the the trends in CPU's, it's ultimately the performances leveling off in so single Coursey performances increasingly coming becoming comportment. And if you look at on, if you spend, you know, there's a lot of kind of junk benchmarks, I guess the internet, but if you spend time really doing a strong bench mar of Impala versus which is implemented C, plus plus versus the JVM base languages. You can see JVM based sequel engines, you can you can find places where pretty easily where you see that impact from a CPA perspective. And so I think I think that that was ruined portent another pieces with h base for exa-. Simple. You spend a lot of time doing all the the sequel engines to you spend a lot of time doing James, you end up spending time doing JVM tuning, and, you know, it's a problem. It's always kinda getting better, but never really gone away in. So for us as operators of the coup-plot form, you know, we'd spend a lot less time thinking about the JVM, and I think that's banning huge operational winners while in then another piece, I guess is that like if you if you run a coup or Cassandra system, you you think about compaction 's more than you would like an so Qiu has a pretty novel philosophy of compacted of from compaction perspective. And ultimately, it's kind of like always being always be compacting. They there's an internal algorithm. That's used decide if if the benefit of compaction is is greater than the cost. And and so from our perspective, we see that we we don't have to think. About compaction very much with Cudi. Either. I'm we should not be a big win as well. And going back to the storage layer. I know that coup supports clustering across multiple instances. So I'm wondering how that manifests as far as replicating data across nodes and some of the complexities or challenges that you faced in the process of building out those capabilities. Yeah. Absolutely. So internally coup uses raft. So it uses raft for replication across node. So the typical pattern is that you, you know, you have table in coup that tables partitioned by some key, either our range or hash or both. And then those tablets are replicated three times using the raft not protocol and Jordan. I definitely don't wanna take credit for that. Or a lot of the early work. You know were both contributors. He's committed to the project. But other folks were definitely doing that were. But like, you know, what we see there is that. You know, ultimately when when you do an update and redo an operation on top of coup. If you if you haven't come confi configured, your client, otherwise you're going to wait until the data's committed to two of the three nodes on before it's successfully considered committed and. So the level of safety is a lot higher than or is higher than with HDFS. So it shift as alternately does not use a Corum to replicate data internally on between the three nodes in S three is a little bit different. But ultimately, your safety of your updates is is quite strong. And we found that people are less surprised by this way, behaves than with us three or even HDFS. There's last times when when people are like, oh, I lost last ten seconds of data that surprises me because the guarantees. I think are a little more aligns with human expectations and in terms of the raft protocol for the consensus clustering algorithm. I know that there are a number of other projects that have relied on things like zookeeper for managing the overall cluster state and things like leader election. So it'd be interesting. To hear about some of the discussion that went into deciding on raft as the consensus algorithm, and some of the overall benefits that it has provided compared to some of the other solutions that were put forth. Yeah. So with you know, like zookeeper, you know, you can use zookeeper to elected leader. Right. But when you do that like you also need to make sure that the storage wherever state is stored on because people typically don't store large volumes of state zookeeper, you need to make sure that state is protected as well. So you really need to like elected leader. And then also deny all possible, you know, previous leaders from updating state in. So like, you know, sometimes people use zookeeper with on like a stone with which is shoot other in the head when you take over as leader type technology, and I think Todd lip com that the crater of coup right before he implemented cou he implemented. Name. Not Jay for aged, Jeff Esau name and spent a lot of time looking at stone. If and other approaches for fencing that storage from previous leaders who may not have realized they're not leaders anymore and decided that using raft for both a leader election in then also replication of data was a a stronger approach to providing availability assistance, so you know, zookeeper Saul hung story short is that do caper solves one problem leader election, but then you also need to do storage fencing, and those two things are very very related and have a lot of interdependencies. So implementing raft themselves was since they were going to have to do the implication. Anyway, I made a lot of sense to the Kutu, and it also has the benefit of being one last component that you need to build out and maintain and scale independently from the koo-do system that you. You are actually primarily caring about unless you're already running zookeeper for other systems. It's just more headache and operational complexity. That's not necessary. Yep. Yep. I think that makes a lot of sense. And if your, you know, there's certainly a lot of users that are going to be running the full stack of legs zoo keeper HDFS yawn so forth, and so on along with Kudo Impala, but there's also users out there that use can Pala which is really just Impala together. And having those users have yet another show miss dependency as well wouldn't be right. And in terms of ingestion of data into the koo-do system. Boot do people primarily just use the language API's that are exposed in coup. Or would they generally use Impala as the mechanism for executing insert statements, or is it just very sort of diverse range of approaches to building on top of coup. Do. So I'll all speak from or the data ensure inside and then Jordan, you can speak from for more data science side in so Impala can do inserts and AKU. But like Impala is a big MPP Korean in. So it's not, you know, if you're gonna do like single row inserts, it's not the most efficient approach in new single row inserts typically you're going to use either the client API, I Java C plus plus python or a tool that's built on top of that in. So like most of the crew data that were aware of is actually ingested with string sets. So with stream sets, you know, you have a visual editor it's ETL tool. Right where you can ingest date from a ton of different sources and without writing any sequel you can put into coup. And so that's a really really common approach for users. The other probably second most common approach that we see is four t type use cases. You would you. Don't your API your. Service, or whatever it may be that's serving those IOT type clients, it would it would use that API directly. Typically, the job API across the job at Johns by far the most us either through scholar overthrew Java directly, and it's just interacting with directly. So I'd say that's the most common approach Impala will also be used. Maybe if you are populated a table from some idiom, sometimes in workflow, you'll be populating AKU table from Parque on that'd be a great use case for Impala to do that work. And so on the data side largely depends on who's doing the ingestion, but you know, oftentimes data scientists are going to do some of their own own ingestion, so Impala becomes kind of more prevalent there just because did assign typically a little more comfortable with a sequel than say going in and write using a, you know jobbers, plus, plus directly, of course, we have the. On a PI as well. However, this is probably one of my regrets in and writing that is that I kinda stuck with the same semantics that plus plus client uses so as a side note, the python client using sights on just wraps the the API. But the semantics of doing writes through the python clients are are admittedly, a little engineering like feel I did did some effort to to wrap those and give it out of a python field. But ultimately, it's it's not as comfortable as say something something like, you know, giving them a pandas like feel to to a client but noticing. I would be remiss if I didn't mention spark spark is kind of you know, what I consider the default ETL tool for big data. And and so lots of spark off coup ingestion worth I going on. Well, and your comment about the python? Client brings up the question of some of the challenges or overall incentives for keeping the different language interfaces feature complete in relation to each other. And the overall design approach to make sure that it's easy to use any of the different language run times. But also make them fairly idiomatic for the language that you're targeting. Yeah. And honestly, that's, you know, being so Java and C plus, plus well, Janas actually entirely separate client, whereas CPA pint on or kind of bound together pretty closely, but feature parody has been keeping feed. Parodies been pretty high priority and largely mostly what I what I kinda deal with at this point given that the python clients created, but just keeping that up to speed. And then and then the other piece like you mentioned is keeping it aligned with kind of the the natural feel for those languages, and that's been a challenge to I can't speak as much I say spark and some of the others, although I've done a patra too. But you know, in python particularly trying to to keep keep it in line with kind of the python way has been a challenge. But you know, and again like I said that one of the regrets is not changing direction early on. But you know, alternately a lot of that can be addressed through, you know, just kind of functional layer on top. So and in terms of deployment and maintenance of coup. I know that there's been fair amount of focus put on enabling operational simplicity in terms of actually getting it deployed and maintain. But also in terms of observability for the system. So can you talk through some of the capabilities of coup that simplify that overall process, and what's involved in actually getting it deployed and also some of the upgrade lifecycles that you might have to undergo. Yeah. So in terms of like installation upgrades and stuff for the most most people just use Carter manager to do that. And it's really really slick very easy to do in terms of things that I think us done really really well like in this general area is on those observability front. You know, there's with C, plus, plus, you know, things like stature as is typically on typically, no real good way to get, you know, stack traces from from people plus process and in so they they've instrumented Cuban in have the Bill to do that. I think like honestly like there's lots of fancy nerve ability stuff at super valuable in koo-do also coming out, generally. But. When you have a process, and you can just say, you know, what give me ten stack traces in a row. I'm wants a second that right? There is just so valuable that you can understand what's going on. What's what's expensive? And that's a feature that is absolutely invaluable on the metric side on. They've done a ton of work to make sure that to do is providing on the metrics that are important around managing that platform. It also instrumental in the memory allocators. You can vary. Very easily figure out like layer is memory being located what who is seen memory within process. So a lot of like, I've always said like the thing about the JVM's. So awesome. Is that it's so transparent. You know, it's easy to figure out what's going on inside of it. And they've spent you know, because of their decision to use post flies. I have spent a lot of time rap locating a lot of that transparency inside of coup. And i've. Personally, big on that. And you know, I mean for for not being JVM project. I think that coup has really the most transparent process than I've ever operated before. So props to Todd for setting that direction early on. And it's for me. It's given what it's doing. And given the scale that we like we have customers that it's it's just not that big of a headache in terms of you know, you kind of mentioned upgrades against the early versions of coup. You know, like when it was, you know, one dot O through one dot three on which you know, on your eighteen months ago. Now there were some definite like challenges with upgrading on in an using those systems. But today we push out updates to customers without a lot of worry in. It's a it's a very very easy process to do that. And in terms of the overall system design are there, any particular edge cases? That you have found to be problematic or that would be useful to have a heads up about for any new users. And if you were to start the entire project over today, what are some of the aspects of the system that you would design differently? So I think the the number one is that like, let's say you have a table anyone reload that table what you don't want to do is go and do delete on all the rows in the table. And then like Rian jest, you'd prefer actually to drop the table recreate then readjust, and ultimately it's because to a sort through all those delete operations in order to scan to the scandal table in. So there's work to like improve how how that behaves in. And I think even some has made the latest release. But like today like, you just definitely don't wanna do that. I'm just drop a table in recreated that that's hit a number of people. I've probably been the biggest. Gotcha. I think that the people have found in the. Go ahead. Join. Oh, yeah. I was just gonna say on the Olympic side as an example, a lot of times, the the data sets that we use are really really wide. And you know, a coup doesn't handle these incredibly wide tables. Very well. So a lot of time chunk those up or kinda get him back into d normalized state. But you know, like really once you go beyond like, three hundred columns or fields becomes kind of complicated. But I've seen use cases and this going to sound ridiculous where we have up to like fifteen thousand columns to try and build a predictive model from so those kinds of use cases are challenging incuding. Yeah. Then the only thing I'd say is that I wouldn't say that there's a can think of something that like definitely do differently while kind of Solta like until, you know, even today the security around to do is very very coarse grind like he can write to coup or you can't write a coup. And and so it's real. We really coarse grain. And so there's work going to integrate coup with Apache century. So you can do role based access control on it on a per table basis. And if I could've changed anything like I would have prioritized that were earlier on in. So we've been a number of use cases where you know, we haven't been able to use coup. It would have simplified things because of that really really core grain security, so having that prioritize earlier, I think when it would've been would been nice, but you know, that's that's really kind of the only piece that I have complained to have. I guess I agree. And so with that in mind, what are some of the situations where you would advise against using coup whether because of those security restrictions or just in terms of the overall system attributes so to be clear on the security end a lot of will call it the access patterns for utilizing data within coup. So ignoring the ingestion for a moment, go through Impala, so many data scientists or business. Analysts come in us to data through Impala and so- Impala is integrated with century, and the data can be secured at a role base level that way the situations where it's not as as when you're going through one of the client, API's, Java or spark or python or what what have you? So these are the situations where that becomes an issue. Generally, what we've seen people do is just force everyone through Impala where you can. And then, you know, white-list use cases, essentially, a API where possible rotted you to add to that most of the time we can work around using that approach that Jordan has a join mentioned. But I think it'd be more ideal scaredy is coming and it would've been better to have it earlier. This kinda what hitter in terms of use cases, where doesn't really make sense. If we have like, for example, coup has has a string and has a binary type. But right now, the max the default MAC size is sixty four K. And so if you're bringing in. In the blobs beginning his things of that nature. It doesn't really make sense to put that can't put it in cou you probably don't need that in a column rented database, so we have a number of use cases warm will bring that blob in as a side channel put it somewhere. I'm an input the rest of the table in two in. Then another use case is if we talked about changes, dealing the CDC type data right continually changing, well, just like with the deletes as mentioned like if the whole data set changes every day, that's the problem as well. Because of the way kudos internally architect than some of the things are being improved. But that would be a use case where we'd want to spend a lot of time thinking about hot architect that is by the fault. It wouldn't work for awhile out of the box. And in terms of your own experiences working with coup and building on top of it. What have you found to be some of the most interesting or unexpected or challenging lessons learned? Yeah. So just this is kind of more of a personal note. This was for me. My first open source project really being like heavily engaged in and all the while. I was doing that at while working at a company who is financial based. So they had a lot of strict in lecture property rules and stuff, and none of this really has to do with the project. But it was an interesting experience for me learning to get through all of that. And kind of my first journey into into open source. I'd say two things. So I on the lessons learned or whatever. I'd sit initially coup was really are protected at these really really long tables, really really large tables than are used for IT type use cases and excels at that. But you know, because of the, you know, there's so many enterprise data sets in all these companies that are constantly changing and stuff. It's really release full to use it to to be the storage layer for just. Constantly changing enterprise data sets that maybe aren't a billion rose or you know, a hundred billion dollars, and then constant improvements in to do for that use case. But it was kind of something the crew team didn't really see out of the gate, and and so what always helps to get in front of users in certainly the team did this, but hidden from users in China understand how that are going to use the technology. And you know, I think that was just insight that was little missed out of the gate guess on in work kind of catch up with that use case. Yeah. So I guess lessen Lauren is always get out in front of talk about use cases of the community. Get out in front of users and understand how they're, you know, thinking about using the platform abroad spectrum of users, and then, you know, in terms of things that really surprised by or proud of you know, kind of all combination of those, you know, all our peer SSD boxes are becoming really common because of the cloud. And it's amazing the throughput that coup as fewer calms database can do on top of appear esus d-box in in AWS. For example, it it's really amazing to have a truly pure cone database, and yet have you know, just amazing throughput drums of crud operations per second. So it's really cool to see I think that's kind of seen the future a little bit. When when working on those use cases, and what are you most excited about for the future of coup in terms of new features or improvements or just overall community, adoption or anything along those lines. The first thing I'd say is kinda one we already talked about which is kind of finer grain access controls, which is coming through a century integration. That's being worked on as we speak. And I would hope, you know, this isn't like an official statement. But I would hope that that would be completed, you know, end of. Q on or maybe early Q two. And I think once that's released that the barrier to entry for most large enterprises is going to be eliminated. So, you know, the ones that haven't joined in you know, that's been a big problem. So I think once that's gone will seal a lot more adoption of coup. And and I look forward to that. Yeah. I'd say from my perspective, you know, we've been really involved in the communities since the very beginning in so minus the module, the security piece that the Jordan just mentioned, I really feel that it's it's in a place where you know, adoption is is is starting to drive upwards. And I think that it's going to continue in some relief cited to see more and more use cases be implemented on top of view in in in the growing community of coup. And are there any other aspects of coup or fast analytics or the Hugo system, Mark? Anything else that we didn't cover yet, which you think we should discuss before we close out the show. No. I thought we we did a good job. And so yeah, I would just encourage folks to you know, to to try coup in bring the feedback to the community. It's a very active a slack channel. Where where you'll find the original authors in contributors and commuters like Jordan myself on long with a with a large number of users as well. So give it a try and reach out with questions. All right. We'll for anybody who does want to get in touch with either of you and follow the work that you're up to have you add your preferred contact information to the show notes. And as a final question, I'd like to get your perspective on what you see is being the biggest gap in the tooling or technology. That's available for data management today. We'll go with you first, Brooke. Yeah. You know? From. I think Jordan's must meet the same of just say a give it short sentence. But what we see right in the future is that you know, there's a bunch of machine learning models being used to help really make decisions for businesses. Right. And like if you look inside goal or look inside Facebook. Ultimately, there's a lot of production machine model in really believe that's going yoga the enterprise is gonna have a lot of production remodels in the future. And yet if you talk with, you know, a lot of our customers, you know, or prospects like there just isn't any machine learning miles and production. In fact, a lot of them don't know the half to do that in. So to me, that's kind of the glaring gap. Ecosystem Jordan sensuous, it's really a space. Yeah. Yeah. So that's that's largely what my team focused on here. Peach data. But I'd say from a tooling perspective. There's there's a few gaps one. You know, there's really no one platform for this. Right. There's a lot of people trying to address it in you'll minute areas with kind of push button solutions to go to production and inevitably those types of solutions. Just don't work for large enterprises fortune five hundred and and so in this. So this is a challenge. Right. So that puts you back to like, basically, these really complex ecosystems where you kind of have to string together bunch of tools kinda like how Duke would have been pre Cloudera the challenges right now is that we don't have anyone really string those together. So that's something that that we focus on as well as kind of engineering gap. I also feel there's a kind of a gap in skills between say a data scientists and data engineer kind of falling into the sheen learning engineer space, and that's that prevalent of role yet in the in the market, so but it's on the swing. So I think things can good there. Then the other thing I would. Say these are these are kind of like old ideas and things that have been tools out there for a while. But I feel like they're not devolve as quickly quickly as a say some of the other components, and that would be kind of in the space of data quality, data cataloging. And again, they're they're people like Kaliba, and and others that are coming out with stuff. But I've I still to this day seeing a lot of clients large clients develop their own solutions for these in. I just feel like there could be better frameworks in place. But yep. Thank you both for taking the time today to join me and discuss your experiences working with the koo-do platform. It's definitely very interesting project and one that seems to have a very well defined place in the do go system. So thank you both for the time and effort you put into that. And for your time today, and I opened dry the rest of your day. Thank you. Thanks.

#745 Songs About Animals, Opinions on Tame Impala & Grimes

"You're listening to the sound opinions and later in the show we're going to be sharing some of our favorite songs about animals but I some new music. That is a little bit of one more year. The lead track from the slow rush the newest and fourth album from Tame Impala Greg. You and I were super excited when this band burst out of Perth Australia. In the mid two thousands they were guests on the show. When I say they I'm really talking about Kevin Parker and occasionally some help a classic bedroom or tour sonic craftsmen. They were on the show in two thousand thirteen episode five. Oh three we both put loaner ISM on our top tens in two thousand twelve. We've been following eagerly everything that Mr Parker has given us. Working in the past with Dave Friedman he was obviously a fan of the flaming lips their longtime producer coming from that general space and then growing over three albums and then a long delay going on five years. Since we've gotten new music from Kevin Parker now here. We have the slow rush. Let's play a track from it. We'll come back and give our opinions in a minute. This is it might be time. Indeed Mr Parker on sound opinions see it might be time from the new. Tame IMPALA record the slow rush the slow Russia well name because it was slow and making it and that's fine. Kevin Parker is known as a guy who will obsess an up some more over his recordings and a sound bending his time in the studio sound opinions record that two thousand thirteen live taping of them in the studio the longest war. My history of this show got. He wants everything perfect. And you get the sense that this record was taken to the hilt when it came to perfection. You know there's a lot of beautiful sounds on this record. I mean there are some exquisite production layers and layers of production. You know it is the quote Unquote Cliche. Headphone record. Right on. And you're going to hear your head is going to be swimming with details but as much as I admire what Kevin Parker can do in the studio. I gotta Say I am. I'm unmoved by this record. I was absolutely thrilled by the first to TAME IMPALA RECORDS THE THIRD ONE. I thought he started to make the change over to a more keyboard. Synthetic sound and much more influenced by aren't being contemporary pop music bringing in a lot of those influences. Nothing wrong with that. I do sort of miss the guitars I do. Miss the tension that he was able to create in the studio with those Psychedelic soundscape because he was an extraordinary guitar. My goodness he's a he's a multi instrumentalists truly gifted musician. And I love touches like that. What he calls the Gregorian robot choir on on one more year that we played at the top. He is a huge supertramp fan as he acknowledged us. And you can hear it on those stabbing keyboards on that and it might be time track but then you get something like instant destiny which to me is his attempt. It's sort of a pop soul kind of vibe when they talk about yacht rock. This is what I think of. Yeah let's go on the yacht. Let's put on that New Tame Impala record bother anyone and you have to be wearing a white cravat while you're on the so. I don't know what what happened to Mr Parker. I love him as a an idea again. Those records are great. But I just am unmoved by this record I agree. It's a horrible record. It is only March as we record and yet this is a contender for the Turkey. Shoot of the year maybe the Turkey and specifically decade. I went back to our reviews of currents I liked it more than you but I was making the comparison to him really coming into his own as a Brian. Wilson like pop orchestrator. Yeah currents had the songs. The slow rush has no songs. It's as if this entire record was recorded. Under a six foot layer of gauze you know the vocals are gauzy the melodies are non existent and then went back to some interviews. He had done for that last album. And he said it was inspired by driving around Hollywood high on magic mushrooms listening to the BG's No good not your favorite. But no no and he means the disco. Bg's and now he's added that he thinks he's gotten closer to perfecting that but he also says he wants to be. Max Martin the Swedish super. You can hear it in my. Hey Man Max. Martin produces records that have melodies hoax gigantic hooks. Kevin Parker has just disappeared into his own belly button. When he sings on that track. We just played. It might be time. You Ain't is cool as you used to be. Hey I'm sorry Kevin but you ain't trek called violence from new grimes record. Miss Anthropoid Seen Claire Boucher Vancouver raised artists who emerged with a couple of records in two thousand and ten got signed a four d a big signing for them and came out with the visions in two thousand twelve which won a Juno award in her native Canada. She started out as a bedroom. Artis making all these sounds on her computer vocals etc. She continues to run the self contained. Grimes Empire she composes. Performs produces handles all the artwork. The apex of that was art. Angels in two thousand fifteen swung harder in the direction of Pop music a nod to what was going on at the pop charts but again putting her own spin on. It was one of the best albums of two thousand fifteen as far as I was concerned as far and I believe you Jim Carey challenging the hand that had champion her saying Mariah Carey in her way as animal. Collective right right now. We have the follow up to our angels five years later this anthropoid seen. Here's a track from it it's called. You'll miss me when I'm not around from grimes on sound opinions bound aled. Pass your miss me when I'm not around grimes on Miss Anthropoid. This is a dense and complicated and multi-layered record greg. You know the first couple of times I was listening. I was not paying attention to the lyrics initially and was just getting lost in these as usual dense enveloping sometime sensual sometimes threatening soundscape that she is so good at creating mostly electronic and then sudden shift in the middle of the record within the cruise to Qatar comes in. That's like wow are. What is she doing this? It turns out is a record misanthrope. The scene is a character of earth goddess earth the goddess of climate change and grimes as usual is playing a role much like bjork. I think an obvious role model thing on different personas she is this like mangga super heroine. Who wants to be head with a giant sword weaker than her with those who would destroy this planet at the same time again and the lyrics are sparse right. It's as much you get these the feeling of the stories from the music as the words at the same time. Let's face it You know if you were lucky enough to drive a Ferrari might be nice to take it up to a hundred and ten around the racetrack. So it is. This and relationships can be like that they can be toxic but they can also be very alluring so when his grimes talking about relationships and romance and when is she talking about mother? Earth being destroyed. By? Let's face it. It would be fun to be able to fly to the moon or or or drive that race car right It's a really complicated record that rewards the time you spend with it. Yeah I I agree. I think this record Experimental I mean she could have done a follow up to our angels and I think everybody would have been thrilled with that of there was so much there and then you put this on and you kind of the first few tracks are kind of you go. This is almost like a clubby instrumental record vocals very buried in the mix thing I forgot is musically which I haven't seen people talking about a really straight forward Emphasized Middle Eastern. Yeah there's a lot of exotica on here the Bollywood Song you know. There's there's an references to like acid house. There's an eastern accent on a bunch of these songs as well You know the the tracks. It's sort of jump out. I I to me. It's it flows together in a way. That's really alluring. And then when she hits you with one of those gigantic cooks like a song like violence that we just four I am. My name is dark. they really jump out at you in a in a really inventive way. That makes it feel seamless and yet at the same time you feel this these pop elements creeping through that trek. We just played. You'll miss me when I'm not around. I keep going back to that track because I just think that is so inventive. I figured out I read some interviews song about an angel committing suicide. You know it's a it's a pop song strange one. It's got this great based group that she played apparently these intersecting vocal lines in it It's a sweet song. And then it's got this weirdness and menace to it that sort of encapsulates her appeal. You can't quite put your finger on exactly what's going on all the time and I really liked that. I mean you talk about a subversive part is does she is it. Jim and I are high on his grimes record misanthrope. Seen we were neither one of US really liked Tame Impala Rick has played and I've already forgotten him and now we're going to throw it out to the listeners. What do you think of the New Music from TAME IMPALA? Grimes give us a call at eight. Eight eight eight five nine eighteen hundred with your opinions and why coming up. We have some fun exchanging some of our all time favorite songs about animals that's intimate unsound opinions from WBZ CHICAGO NPR X. Welcome back sound opinions. I'm Jim dear. God is here with my partner Greg Kat and this week we are talking about animals in music. One of our producers Alex Claiborne is is a huge animal lover. She does dogs rescue prompted us to about horses. Awhile back now. We are doing songs about you name. It hound dogs free birds. White Rabbits Karma Chameleons. We're not going to be that obvious. I gotTa Confess Greg. I know you have had the cat in your house when I've been hearing it nearly kills me. I am so allergic to cat and dog hair but I love the idea of animals and I certainly love songs about animals. You're going to start off. We're GONNA go back and forth. I am indeed Jim. I want to start us off with Lowell. George Song The great songwriter for little feat. dixie chicken from the nineteen seventy-three little feat album their third record. The location of the song is Memphis but the sound is pure New Orleans. A lot of it has to do with bill pains piano playing the song. I love the vibe on this song You know the concept is simple. It's a time honored one doomed romance with the Southern Bell. The FEM fatale she seduces him ran runs off with all his money. And another man Meanwhile the line that recurs throughout the song he she seduces him by saying. If you'll be my dixie chicken. I'll be your Tennessee Lamb. So we got a couple of animal references and then sold that is so southern when we can walk together down in. Dixieland you know you think about the little little names that couples have reach my little lamb chop and you know honeybear. Forgive me. Now I haven't but One day and and here we have sort of an example of that and you know the end. The twist at the end is that you know. A poor lowell. George Wanders into a bar heartbroken about this woman. Who Done him wrong? And he's sitting down at the bar and every guy at the bar is singing the refrain for this course so you know. He is the latest in a long line of people who have been a run out. On by this fatal. So I loved the song it's funny self deprecating. Got A hook that lasts for years. Dixie chicken by Little Feat Unsound Opinions Hey like man who dixie chicken by little feat. Greg's first Great Animal Song Art Greg. I'm GONNA share Having just alienated a significant portion of our audience. By saying I I am definitely allergic to animals. Therefore I haven't ever lived with any there wasn't exception My Stepdad who love deeply. Who gave me my first set of drums Had this German shepherd named Shep. This dog was the size of a small horse. Hanaway two hundred pounds and had that. Wow German shepherd main you know I mean it was like like a foot deep. He decided he was gonna live in my bedroom in the basement. And you know I like consistently lay on my bed if I was on the couch. Read and he's going to lay on me. I I had trouble breathing and seeing the is would swell but I love this dog. The dog was so lovable and my Stepdad. Used to play folk Guitar at the at the folk mass on Sunday right any played play guitar in class. He was a science teacher. He would play old shep because his dog was named. Shep now this is one of the most storied songs in the history of popular music. Red Foley writes it in nineteen thirty three about a dog. He loved when he was a kid. Who was poisoned by a neighbor Initially he was calling. The dog's name was hoover that didn't work right. Shop is a much better name and this is a sad song. I'm sorry people I you know. I don't believe in spoiler alert. It's hard enough to be a good critic without re shepherd is in the shop gets sick and he has to put to sleep. Okay and old SHEP goes if there's a heaven there's one thing I know old. Shep has a wonderful home. Now this is a classic tearjerker and it can be Maudlin. There have been about seven thousand recorded versions of this Some great ones red. Foley's is pretty good and hank snow and Hank Williams and Johnny cash even the Everley brothers with garrison keillor but Elvis Presley at age ten in his first public performance. Elvis young Elvis dressed as a cowboy has to stand on a chair to reach the microphone at the Mississippi Alabama Fair and dairy show and he sings old. Shep he later. Performance at a talent show that he wins he only came in fourth or fifth that first time and it becomes a staple. It'd be like all the way through Vegas you know and it's always a tear jerker and it's more than happy. I don't know if it's good but damn it's GonNa make me cry. It always makes me cry. It makes me think that Damn German shepherd it also used to like to like put its head in my bass drum as I was trying along with ramones records anyway. This one goes out to shop. All shocked by Elvis on sound opinions off was loose over stray. Just had his work to get him Aw butto was right. Ooh As fast role his last. Groom an Juan I can do more for you both chef by Elvis Presley. We're all a little misty eyed Verdun ships doggy heaven. Well you got a song about a dog. I'm GonNa do a song about a coyote. Joni Mitchell's coyote from the GIRO L. From nineteen seventy six Joni on electric and acoustic guitars with The fretless Bass by one Jaakko pet story. This was Janis move into a more open ended jazz terrain. This is the lead off track from that record the The title character the Coyote in native American Lore a character with divine powers. But also a trickster and you know Joni literary genius says like Joni She. She is You know fixing one of her lovers in into that space of the coyote the trickster with the divine powers some have speculated that this song is about one of her lovers. Sam Sheppard The playwright and an intern Joni Understands what she's up against here she understands. She's onto this guy. He's got his number. They're opposites they recognize that they also recognize that. Hey It's kind of fun to have this momentary tryst but it's never it's never going to last between the two and she's on onto that before he is. He can't seem to let go. Meanwhile he's eyeing the other women in the room and she is saying you know I'm moving on many of Joni Mitchell's songs. Explore this aspect of a relationship about this sort of danced. They're doing And this is one of the most brilliant ones in the personification of the coyote she takes on the persona of the Hawk at the end. The Hawk was up was up about playing with him. The Coyote was jumping straight up and making passes. There's a line from the song that says that so. You have a number of animal metaphors here for this relationship in coyote by Joni Mitchell and sound opinions. Such different sets a circumstance. I'm adding studios. You'll be brushing booed. The Sun is out there just to the bone. I still feel so still stations in summary hitting saying you just picked up a hitch. Freezing soften in the middle of past tragedy house was playing chicken and shake it up floor the next thing. I know that Kinda depends that is Joni Mitchell with coyote. Unsound Opinions. Jim You've got another song about animals for us. I'm going to an all time. Classic Greg. Nineteen sixty five wooly bully. Yeah by Domingo's otherwise known. As Sam Sam the sham and the Pharaohs this is another goofiest songs in the history of popular music recorded at the recording studio. Sam Phillips Built in Memphis After moving out of the original son so another SAM PHILLIPS ELVIS CONNECTION THERE. It was a huge hit. The only one Sam Little Red Riding Hood to write. That was another one that he had nothing. Nothing came Close to topping the charts like this did for consistent period of time and it's all ripped off right. It is a re write of one thousand nine hundred sixty two song called hully gully now and You know hully Gully Willie Bullying. You know how he is. Obviously a dance Willy bully may or may not be a dance. It's also an animal I love the way. Domingo Sam counts down nor does threaten squadron and gets into. There's only six lines of lyric. And they're all absurd. Mattie told Hatty about a thing she saw had two big horns and a wooly jaw but will he believes also a dance. You know. Let's not be l seven. Sam Sings come and learn to dance what he dancing your dance and the Willie bullied presumably. You put the horns on your head and you get all kinds of Harry and you dance around. I mean this. Is You know when you think that it came out in sixty five it pre-stages the great era of nuggets garage. Rock breaks sixty seven. And it's just it's raw. It's it's it's a rip-off it's derivative it's stupid S. T. O. P. I. D. And it's absolutely brilliant and timeless rock and roll doesn't get much better than wooly bully on sound. Why do line do acquiesced you boy? Oh Man Sam the sham and the Pharaohs gotTa Love It. Wally bully coming up. We've got more tracks than animals and Greg will bid farewell to the late guitarist for Mazzy Star Opel and the Rain Parade David Robak. That's in a minute on sound opinions from WBZ CHICAGO NPR ex off got a little red rooster to Laze Kroll Roost to laze crow for D. He keeps everything in the upset way. Welcome back to San Opinions. I'm Greg Kat. He's Jim de regardless and today we're talking about songs about animals so from an expert. I'M GONNA take it down to the farm specifically animal farm The Great George Orwell distortion allegory from nineteen forty-five when his great novels of the Twentieth Century? I was glad to see you pick this track because you know the temptation is pink. Floyd's animals right. You know it's all very right to obvious yes You know I have to say the dead Prez debut album. Let's get free in two thousand is a classic and this song is on it and it gives you a sense of what the entire Almaz about. There's a lot of political social commentary on here. These guys were pretty radical. You know public enemy was the most radical band of its era dead. Prez certainly Held a prize in the in the two thousands and taking the the Orwell Book and writing a song around it It it basically revolves around this idea of the animals on the farm rebelling against their human masters and taking over the farm and then in turn you know getting a little bit of a superiority complex themselves to the point where the leader Hannibal in the song. One of the biggest of the pigs that takes over the farm decides. I'm going to be the leader. I'm going to be the guy running the place and everybody else turns on goes. Wait a minute. That's not what we bargained for talking about like a socialist thing going on here. This isn't GonNa Work Pal. It sounds so earlier they end up taking Hannibal apart. Literally limb by Limb and serving and serving them up at the market at the end of the Bracket has a song. Exactly not a happy end for Hannibal. But basically saying that there's very little difference between the animals and the man you can't tell them apart and just just a very cynical view of human nature By Dead Prez Animal In man unsound opinions. Once upon a time there was a very serious situation does a farmer and a farmyard. Still this is the story of Thurston. Sammy had faults. Walked the land with the wife.

He was disabled from the way he'd be relaxing acting like Mr magnificent but the Hannibal was thinking something. Different assesment was tension in the ball. And y'all throughout the years they had been followed his bond and now came to one conclusion that will be if only cost leftist rebels who was understandable to sister pigs promises of all animals. They plan to full attacks under the leadership.

I'm going to go to the absurdist Craig. I bet you don't know this song. L. Cool J's deepest blue in Peron's Shark's Fin. Okay nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine. There is a horrible movie called Deep Blue Sea. I've seen it at least three times. It comes on cable and it is truly an awful movie. It's an early. Cgi animatronic movie. Yeah not only do. We have killer sharks. I mean jaws had done that decades before right but now the killer. Sharks have been somehow genetically mutated to become rising. Ious killer sharks and they terrorize among others. Samuel L. Jackson who has waited all the time whether he's fighting animatronic sharks snakes on a plane. Michael Rapaport and ll Cool J. movie so he can only be in the movie. This is the height of the multimedia. Hollywood conglomerate also owns record labels so therefore put the put the tracks on so ll. Cool J. Actually writes and records to songs for this but deepest Blue Shark's Fin. I mean this is the sharks fans his hat. He keeps telling us like ladies love. Cool James I'm going to underscore this but I don't know if there had have been worse rhymes in the history of hip hop Manmade Tara hungry jaws of death. Y'All don't cross my depths.

With the little canary on his shoulder running away from the shark. It's just hilarious. Run away from either My next track Jim is from is going to be from the Great Neneh Cherry Buffalo stance of her first big single from one thousand nine hundred ninety eight the one that established her as a major artist at which he continues to be as far as I'm concerned Animal Reference Right Buffalo stance. What it it. It's a metaphor again street slang metaphor for a certain kind of attitude There was a there was a group of photographers models musicians artists that she was hanging around with. Who Sort of adopted this hard defiant street-smart attitude in the way. They were doing everything in the way they were hanging out in the street corner with the clothes they wore kind of music they liked and it's basically a stance the buffalo stance is a stance is. Don't mess with me you know. Yeah the Buffalo stance from what I can gather arms folded a Lotta side. I define attitude. You know projecting this kind of idea that we're going to be independent. You'RE NOT GONNA YOU'RE NOT GONNA move us off this mark Caribbean expression that talks about rude boys and rebels. People who are who are tough you know but but have a a defiant attitude but also framed around the idea of art is important and being yourself is extremely important and I think that's been a calling card for Neneh Cherry. Her entire career begun her career with a more self referential song that she has lived out for the last few decades this cherry with buffalo stance from one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I'm sound opinions. Ladies and gentlemen. I'd like to introduce the hi hat. Good Pam right now off hanging out certain running North Manhattan Global. Where can be a four? We always yes. Dj Cherry Buffalo Stance. Jim You've got one more song for us on sound opinions. That Is about animals yet. One More Greg You know we could have gone in a million directions as a million songs. We could do this show four five times a year and Alex would be happy loving animals. I wanted to go to the white album by the Beatles because There's let's face it. You Know Rocky Raccoon blackbird. Everybody's got something high except for me and my monkey But that also seemed as obvious going to pink Floyd's animals and I wanted to Revisit one of the greatest stories I think One of the most important albums in so many ways in the history of popular music period. You tell the story excellently in your book ripped. The grey album is a masterpiece that many people never heard that that was never officially released that the powers that be in the old school music industry tried to stamp out and that Nevertheless is brilliant and everybody should listen to it. danger mouse. Brian Burton one of the most influential producers of the last two decades. Does this mash up in two thousand and four of the Acapella Just rhyming tracks of Jay Z's blackout. With from the Beatles white album it becomes the grey album Serpa McCartney in Ringo Starr NJ Z. All love it. They applaud it. They think it's brilliant but The corporate powers-that-be at em. I tried to shut it down. I'm surprised to see that it streaming now and maybe killed that by mentioning Brian. Burton is not only an incredibly talented musical ear. But he is a conceptualist and he said at the time a lot of people just thought I was taking some Beatles and throwing some Jay Z on top of it but there were conceptual pairing and deep connections between witch Beatles samples he chose and which Jay Z raps. He put them with and I think The song change clothes which is a pretty successful song on Jay's terms on the blackout I've always heard it as a song about fronting or posing Trying to seem tough but at the same time he is posing and tie right. I mean there's a shout out In their new I ain't a new Jack. Nobody GonNa Wesley Snipes Me Right. But as exactly what he's doing he's being a tough guy. Meanwhile pairing it with that delightfully and Akron Mystic Harpsichord from piggies by George Harrison seem piggies in and for big as getting off. Have you seen the little piggies playing in dirt? Which is a haunting song for any number of reasons? It's obviously a rather dated very nineteen sixty eight critique of capitalism but of course what it became courtesy of the Manson family and and the exact opposite in terms of a pure Harrison and turning into utter evil darkness. And you know what is the pig who is the pig? And what are these characters that Jay is wrapping about Plus it's just like a great listen. Here is the version of change clothes from the grey album by danger mouse on sound opinions. His back may follow to back expressed rest troop that care. What you lewd fish. Fast piece check squatting semester. Likely that the outright right I need to speak what Nelson one on the change clothes by. Jay Z with the Beatles. Courtesy of danger mouse. Brian Burton on the grey album. Man That track as always we want to hear from you. Have you forgotten about the gray out? What do you make of it? What is your favorite song about animals? Why call us at eight? Eight eight eight five nine thousand nine hundred and leave us. A message pose the That is fade into you from Mazzy Star. We're playing it in tribute to David Robak. Who Died February Twenty Fourth of cancer? He was a CO songwriter on that song With Hope Sandoval the lead vocalist in in the span of what seemed like six years there in the eighties and early nineties. He was in three really influential bands beginning with the rain parade last year. We did an entire show on the in the Paisley Underground Movement of which rain parade was part Where we talked about this movement in California was sort of framed around the whole idea of updating the virtues of psychedelic rock from the sixties and bringing it into the contemporary vernacular of Guitar Music and they had a brilliant debut album on which David played with his brother. Stephen left soon. After that debut was released at to form another band called Opel with Kendra Smith who was in another paisley underground band. The dream sending out and that record has not been available for quite some time though. I understand that it is about to be reissued which is great news for people. Who HAVE THAT RECORD? I still have my my vinyl version of it. Happy Nightmare baby from eighteen. Eighty seven Again star-crossed career here because Opal broke up soon. After Kendra Smith left the band in the middle of the tour. Hope Sandoval came on board at that point and then she and David Robak Went on to do Mazzy Star. That's where things really started to happen for the band. The detract we just played fade into. You was a huge huge. Hit In nineteen ninety-three From their second album and JIM WOULD. I recall about that song at that time was how out of step it seemed with all the other alternative rock quote unquote that was happening at the time on the Charts. American variety but what was happening in the UK courtesy of creation. Some of them. I mean ran pop. That stuff doesn't happen without Robak and the and the Paisley underground bands and now. They are in stepping in the alternative. Were they have a hit? They bring it back. Full Circle Right You know everybody sort of focuses on that Second Record so tonight that I might see that produced That song and with good reason. It's a great song. It holds up incredibly well. Actually went broke into the top fifty so it was. It was a hit But I love love. Love the Mazzy Star debut album from nineteen ninety. She hangs brightly. Robak and hope. Santhal continued to collaborate through the years. They had a huge long break. Between records. They stopped making records in the mid nineties. Then picked up again with a two thousand thirteen release. According to rollback they never stopped recording and never stopped making music. They just didn't choose to release it so they were back on You know whatever you WANNA call it the reunion trail the comeback trail. They were still making music. Robak unfortunately died at the age of sixty one but he leaves behind a great body of work. The debut album from Mazzy Star. I still hang my hat on that one. It's called. She hangs brightly. And here's the first track from it. Hala from Mazzy Star and David Rollback on sound opinions. Sad shy go through the door and ask own navio excuse close. Nah He'll ask surprise. Mom Do stay Missing to close the door a say Halla by Mazzy Star on sound opinions in tribute to David. Robak dead at the age of sixty one. Greg what do we have on the show next week Jim?

Wherever you find such things as always the show has been produced by Brennan Band Alex Clayborn ionic contributors and Andrew Gill Disturb out a sound opinions. Everyone's a critic so now it's time to hear what you have to say new messages. Hi this is Patty. I live in Washington DC. I just doesn't a year show about songs about time and my favorite song about time and particularly her time goes slow.

Aussie2Aussie: 5SOS on Tame Impala (with Luke Hemmings & Calum Hood)

"Killing Eve is one of those shows that gets your heart pounding. The first two seasons were absolutely insane and unlike any show I've seen before two women with brutal past that are basically addicted to each other. I couldn't get enough now. The third season is premiering on BBC. America and AMC Sunday April twelfth at nine PM. New York magazine called the Emmy nominated show a wicked pleasure. And if you've seen the first two seasons you know exactly what they mean and if you haven't seen it go catch up on BBC America into AMC APPS. I'm a little. Jealousy gets the start at the beginning season three premiers Sunday April twelfth at nine PM on BBC America and AMC don't Miss It. Welcome to switched on pop. I'm Songwriter Charlie harding and I'm musicologist. Nate Sloan and today we're joined by two special guests if you don't mind introducing yourself yet this is callum and Luke's here also where from the band called seconds of some. Hey how you doing sluggish five summer abbreviated five sauce five. Sos is so much fun. You are the first group to have your first two albums go number one. You have countless hit singles. Some of my favorites are young. Blood who do you love? Y to me featuring Julia Michaels you have done worldwide Taurus with one direction. You are stadium. Touring Act in your own. You have a really loyal vocal fan base today. Were talk about some of your new music. But first we're GONNA do something something a little bit unusual. We are going to do a segment that we've never done before and will probably never do again. Called Ozzy to ozzy of our great Australian friends from the band have brought another band to us that we want to listen together and break down before we listen to some of five music. So you have brought us tame impala a musical project of the Australian Songwriter and producer. Kevin Parker who really defies genre. He's often labeled psych pop. But he's worked with people spanning Mark Ronson Travis. Scott and Connie West is music has been covered by. Yeah huge fans impala obviously being on the show being Australians. We need we needed to kind of insert. Some right here As you say so Yeah he was the first person to kind of come to mind in terms of modern USTRALIA. Next he has a new album the slow rush which is a meditation on time. You chose the song borderline sick. Listen so what is it about this particular track borderline that that speaks to you? The thing that fascinates me just about having a say Kevin as if on a minute before he seems pretty approachable exactly is just they cultural impact. He's had as an artist in Australia. You know we've had people who've who've stood in similar lanes in terms in terms of that which I would say like Angus. Young is one and deathly Michael. Hutchence's one Peter Garrett from Donaldo this certain energy and pandemonium around around that band in terms of People feeling proud that he's from Australia which totally love and finding deering in this song for me as a basis is the tempo in the group that I love I think within his album. There's there's total diversity within tempos which I think creates a great body of work. So that's what drew me to this song. I don't know how luke feels better. What do you think a man? I agree with everything you've said. I think he's an interesting one because I feel like totally has a sound which can be scary as an artist to have a sound. But it's just him doing it so it's like he's doing everything so it's gonNa sound kind of similar age. Tommy seems to like step it up with the way like away mixes it everything in together and he steps it up with like Calvin talking about new groups and like new baselines. It doesn't ever feel like it's like one really like a piece of work every time but then it's also like really diverse and it's really odd to have those two things mixed together. Yeah he had a conversation recently with the scene on beat Swan about how he goes about creating sound. I think column. You'll connect with this in particular. I almost feel that you're a drummer above anything else. That's true I believe like rhythms for me Almost more important than the actual melodic like codes and stuff themselves like outside of drums. Percussion and stuff like the the rhythm of the vocal rhythm of the Baseline Algorithms going together is to me to me. That's like the cornerstone of time. And Paul. I think a great example of this would be like in the outer of the song. We really hear that base interlocking with the drums in a really tight ridden. Yeah Yeah Yeah. I think he's become almost notorious for adding a second base log. Onto was the end of the song to add to the dynamic of the song which is a really cool feature too. Yeah I love the idea here that the song is driven by rhythm. I write like rather than hooks or lyric. He's thinking about how to establish a groove and I think that's one of the things that really defines Lewke put it the. There's a really clear tame impala sound. Yeah I think that's one of the places we identify. I definitely sense that nothing. He doesn't spend time and he's lyric and melody but it definitely feels very lucky. Said it comes with the Bass and the drums minutes definitely mean we even fell into the last couple of albums like it's so important to have that down on a lot of things that go down really well live now have started from playing as a band or like starting like what. What groove or Rhythmic pocket a we missing on this album and then we go in and try and do that and then we'll do like a lyric military of the top lyrical melodies. More important to me in particular. I think also the band anyway but taking whether it was from hearing town follower just kind of like I don't know trying to fill those rhythmic gaps for us. It's definitely something we've thought about more and more. You know the rhythm drives this track but then there's some really moving lyrics like will I be known and loved? Is there one that I trust? This song is the idea of being on the border line and just like always questioning and another way that the song is questioning might be in the the structure and form of the song itself where you think the verses and Bridge Chorus. Belong is not always where they appear. Yeah I love that. Yeah I was playing this out and I was listening to what is called the verse. Where the first thing we get? Check this out like it's hard for me to tell if that's a verse or if actually the Hook because after this we get some other material they call a bridge section just happens once before going right back into what again is sort of. Its title the verse in the Lyrics but now we get the title of the song so it sort of suggests that we're hearing is of course just course. Africa is almost like one long course and long course dream but then there's a whole nother section which they call the chorus. What do you think of this? Do you think that this song wished feels like kind of experimental structure and yet it's a single and it's really successful album from a very successful band? Do you think this falls within a pop sound? I mean pope is to me anyway and popular music so people love this so Stephanie pump and the way it sounds to me is very is dreamy but it also doesn't shy away from melody it doesn't shy away from although it has an interesting Song Structure. I I even see those. I mean it's different ends of the field. I guess the avenue that might Costa Lima. He just it's almost like he just keeps throwing awesomeness at. You just keeps going like also melody's in pots and rhythms and stuff and just keeps your ear the whole time I think. That's maybe not the reason that he will connect with it so much because it's relentless in like ear worms only I love you. Pull that out. I too when I was listening to this song was thinking about post Malone and realizing I think a lot of the sort of phrasing that is really popular and melodic structure which is popular right. Now we actually a lot to tame impala when you get these sort of internal small melodies that repeat again and again and again and you can hear that in team impala you can hear that post Malone you can hear that in so many other artists hundred percent. I don't think it's I mean even relate back to the smaller attention span. We're getting worse. We're going to have a three minute song. Few a few melodies that change in the keeps your interest the whole time if show. I was really surprised to hear from Kevin Parker who in a conversation with TV did refer to his. Music is absolutely pop up that you want it to be very very pop. I mean I've always my music to be really so I think that it doesn't matter what sounds you're using if you're starting with. Hook I or the first or how you're structuring song. It feels like what matters is sort of the intent and the intent is for people to love this to dance to groove to it and I think it's succeeding on that level. One hundred percent. I think even the I mean obviously has the eighties influenced since it's definitely unique one hundred percent. There's no doubt about that but it's it's popular music by definition he plays arenas does very well so I would call that popular. Music hundred percent shouldn't be negative. I feel like right on. Yeah it's like you know. I think his strategy is get that rhythm. Get that groove going and then you can kind of start to sprinkle some weird stuff on top and people won't mind as long as as long as they're feeling the groove you know you can get away with like he's got some flute and pizzicato strings in here. I've never seen an interview even talk about this but I was actually wondering because it's just him that does everything and as we've moved more into like more of a production side of things or even trying to demo things ourselves. I wonder how long he spends on a song. Sounds like spends a long time. But maybe he's just a freak at it yeah. He says about his process that I think he works up until the very end. When somebody says that this is going to mastering and is being released in two weeks and you have to finish the music right. So He's tweeting constantly definitely okay. This has been a lot of fun getting to talk about Your Ozzy Brethren Tame Impala but we really want to get to dive into five seconds of summer. We're going to do that right after the break.

So get ready. The season's going to be wild. The third season continues the story of two ferocious unbelievable women with brutal pasts addicted to each other but now trying desperately to live their lives without their drug of choice. Everything seems fine. Until shocking death sets them on a collision course once again the journey back to each other will cost both of them friends family and perhaps a part of their souls tune into killing Eve April twelfth to see what happens next in the deliciously wicked darkly hilarious and widely addictive emmy nominated series. That's Sunday April twelfth at nine pm for the premiere of killing Eve season three on BBC America and AMC. Don't miss it like bringing up. This idea of what fits within a pop format and five seconds of summer are a group that really sort of similarly belie genre. How do you think about the label? Pop is that something you wear comfortably or are unsure about. I remember the first time when I was fifteen and our songs went on itunes. The first Tom Emmer hit we played at Stott shows. That could play. Were with metal bands and really heavy rock bands because that was the only people that were playing shows and the place. We grew up so we ended up doing that. And we're just a live band. At that point so my hand will rock band pump. Or whatever like very like angsty I suppose and then out music went on like jeans or whatever it was labeled POC. I go on that agenda. I'm very young and now ago. How come it says pop on our thing and he goes no may ease English. No mate is just that's just popular. Music means lots people listen to whatever he said and I was like. Oh okay so like the Beatles will pop and the stove pipe and everyone like anything with a when you can attach yourself to. A melody is technically a pop song. I think anyway like even some of those like slipknot sums is gonNA sound ridiculous but like the melody before I forget by. Slipknot is a pop melody in my head. Even though it's fucking madness around it it's still something that people latched onto a love that so it sounds as though pop is a very broad umbrella for you. All your your sound has evolved cl- a lot over your albums and you have a new album out. Calm just came out on March twenty seventh. What were your expectations going into this project? I think at the very beginning. It came from a very pure place and it was very impulsive. I think in terms of the songwriting. It reflected what music we grew up with as well. I mean in western Sydney those a huge movement of pop punk and punk though a lot of metal fans out there as well so like even first gigs were with these metal bands guys in their thirties. And we'd have like ten young girls at Al Station than it'd be fifty. Read the of the stage watching the metal bands that kind of influenced us in in the way that we wanted to achieve something. Great without music in the think especially with Australia's is a big mental attitude towards just being the best version that you can In terms of Human Nelson musician as well so that played a big PUTT and then kind of as as career progress. We would just find any in terms of how we wanted to a particular message to fans of who we were as artists and I incorporate influences of all the artists that we love and Al Spin onto it as well so you told me about the process of choosing some of the sounds for this album. What were you trying for? I mean at the time I was listening to a massive massive attack was a huge influence for me personally on this on this record and I really wanted to try and culprit a lot more euphoric elements into into the records. Because I think that's something that we haven't necessarily touched on as we talked about before time and pollen of seeing them a couple times play and it's it's just a feeling you get when you say it doesn't matter if you know them or not at some. The energies is totally reciprocated. And I think in terms of sounds were using using a profit. And we're using a juno slowly and the world surf most of the key sounds and then we're lucky enough to have a produces such as Having says he would take those sounds way and he just totally manipulated them in. It'd come back kind of total weird flipped upside down hybrid of thing so up till now we've been asking some pretty softball questions but we're we're GONNA turn up the heat now. We're going to put you on the spot. And here's a here's a little Trivia question for Y'all what is five seconds of summer have in common with Sheryl Crow Bon Jovi the BG's Dolly Parton. Linda Ronstadt Tom Petty Beach House. Nicolas Jaar soccer. Mommy and Ghost's face killer. You have five seconds for your answer. Holy Shit Dolly Parton. I'd say lyrical insperity and storytelling. What was the other ones chill crow? Bon Jovi the BG's Dolly Parton. Linda Ronstadt Tom Petty Beach. Nicolas Jaar soccer. Mommy and ghost face killer out. Say Bon Jovi. We love a big fat lob show and a big ripping guitar solo wherever we can sneak one in your good sports. I can't I can't let this go any longer. You every one of these artists has a song title. That is wildflower really. You're in good company. I love that Tom. Petty Song You allow the while now. We have a song called wildfire. And all those oddest due to ask totally as need. So let's zoom in on this track which we've had on heavy rotation recently. Is there a story behind wildflower? Yeah definitely I mean the main core. The album was written with injure Watt Alley. Tim Posey Louis Bell and Happy Perez but we also on the law sound worked with Main Karami Cube and he is a great mentor in terms of How he's helped us develop songwriting style. Yeah people might know rummy. Yakubu is one of the collaborators Max Martin in his early career making songs for the likes of Britney Spears and backstreet boys and he's also worked continuously with all the great acts Selena Gomez Madonna. Demi Levato all these folks. Yeah I think I mean he's great in terms of his melodic tastes everything that he sings. Everything's really based on intervals in the contrast of of Melody. The dynamic of of length of the notes it's all very meticulous and thought out but basically the view is to really just challenge yourself and push yourself and think about things twice before you put them in but also finding that balance of not losing. What comes naturally to you on twitter. You called wildflower of Frankenstein of everything that you love about music and we thought it'd be fun if we could break down some of its sounds and share the references that you're hearing and the references that we're hearing right off the top we have this beautiful intro feels like queen or the beach boys to me but I mean not tutoring hall. And but that's what we're going for the vocal group stuff you know. That is so much better than what I heard for. Some reason my year went to fleet foxes but within the context of the Song I think the Queen and our beach boys makes a lot more sense. I like that and then we move into the guitar tones here which are pure eighties bliss. Yeah we're getting like Cindy lauper time after time vibes here What do you think I think there's a bunch of different guitar? Sounds intones of what was inspiring us. I think a big one for me was a waste man. Also back into the eighties remain inaccessible. The huge one especially because they're Stralia as well tunnel. I think they know a staple sound for their time. Talk talk was a big one. I was really taken by the way in which the chorus is phrased. It is really unique. There's a middle melody. There's a Lo- melody there's a Hi Melody. Quite unique phrasing kind of choppy. What's going on there? Yes so basically? The basic idea in the room was two Oscars producer already. Had the track laid out here. The stabs in the chorus and the basic idea was to ride around the stabs. Really leave the stabs kind of open and prominent as if they were lyric themselves. So that was the first foundation that we laid and basically we just started singing as many ideas as we could. Once we hooked onto something that we lights we expanded on net ideas and we came back and we tried something different and kind of left no stone unturned because he had he had a Swedish guy in the session will two Swedes. You had one Canadian. He had to Australian so it was a total like culture. Like fuck ary in in the room and everyone coming in with his needs strange ideas which was awesome. Well if everyone gets to sing apart I I call the low part. I hadn't really heard any other sort of contemporary or Nostalgia. References the closest thing. I could hear that uses the same sort of style. Was this weird bridge section in tears for fears. Everybody wants to rule the world. Jesus sounds cute. Forget period through like a fuzzy speaker right now. Still big intoxicants down. Just dummying in that Grazie. We love all that eighty stuff. That bridge like with the keys and Canada Open. Uis is definitely taking from that kind of live whether it was directly inspired by that Particular Song. I like that. I'm actually enjoying all the references. Where maybe it wasn't the thing that we offer like any of the Psalms but actually has a similar vibe to it being exactly what we're listening to you like and referencing and in the writing process of any of the songs but it's really it's super close in the same kind of John. Repack will throw one more reference out there and see if you're still so favorable because when we get to the bridge of wildflower. We're almost hearing this moving in kind of a new age direction settlement. I don't know what to say other than the thing that my ear immediately went to. Enya and I mean it the greatest way I love that song yeah anyone in now career as ever comparative as the Great Thing. Fantastic calm you recently posted to youtube a short video breaking down all the stems of this song the individual components and when. I was listening to that. I heard something that really took. My ear is just the Johns and parts together all here. You have all these loops all these live drums at the top and with the courts here. The stabs you mentioned that were before earlier stabs. What is a stab basically for me? A stab is is when in terms of the whole band. Accentuating note or a pattern or a sound old cohesively at the same time. That's what stabbed means for me and you described the potential kinds of layers that you think might have been in the stab that brought you. How could you describe? Yeah I think Oscar would've used I mean without giving too much of the sacred sway. It would have been a lot of a lot of layered since. I think there was a prophet in. There probably was a Juno and those deathly doubt case sound. Well the stab. We think has a larger history. We have a segment. We like to do called classical masters where we relate something from the present into the past here in particular we noticed what we usually call an orchestra hit. You're calling a stab in reminded us of a video. That are vox colleague. Stelle caswell made for her video series earworm on Youtube. Here's a style. There are all types of orchestral heads but the original actually comes from nineteen eighteen. Ten when you're Stravinsky premiered. His piece the firebird at the Paris Opera. Check it out. What's crazy is how Stravinsky's orchestra hit made it onto hundreds of records in the nineteen eighties. And he did that via one other important Ozzie. Who INVENTED THE FIRST COMMERCIAL? Sampler I'm vocal. I developed the first commissioner sampling synthesizer which was at seeing my back in about nineteen seventy five. Ironically the orchestra hit was a complete accident which was sampled by. They had just happened to have a Ivano recording Boots wait nearby when always missing around that focus Turkey which I think was right at the beginning of one of the tracks and that's a good set. Peter called the sound or two and put it on an eight inch floppy disc full of those other stock sounds and obviously people to like into so. That's African Planet Rock and the stock sound or Ck two on the fairlight. Cmo became smash. You can hear it on the pet shop boys always on my mind. Duran Duran's viewed kill the smiths. Last night I dreamt new orders. Bizarre Love Triangle and even spears lucky features the ORC to sample which actually takes us back to Yacoub who is also on your track wildflower. Oh I didn't know that I had no idea the segments actually called the first sample with this. Yeah that's right. So this device the fairlight semi was this old computer. It was extremely expensive. Very people could afford it. At the time this giant computer was run off a floppy disks. And it was the original sampler it was the original even sort of like digital audio workstation where you could sequence things on a screen and so one of the famous sounds. Was this Stravinsky sample. That just happened to be in Peter. Vogel Studio he recorded in and then it became the sound of the nineteen eighties. It was on so many sounds so when I hear the stab on wildflower. It brings me back into this whole body of work. That connects us. Ozzy Ozzy Ozzy. I think I mean. Even on the last couple of albums we feel like the Star. We've been putting in this space. Didn't really feel very comes win. As in people would call one thing. We felt like another thing like I said you know team. Teenagers and I think the burden four thousand becomes like over. Everything started experimenting particularly with with cow plane. More and more keys than keyboards on and being like a junior or a profit or something like in trying only sounds. Then you go. Oh who's this sounds like. Oh sounds all his pants. Lease LIKE COOL. Sounds like opens up a whole new melodic puppet. Yeah we've unpacked some of the Frankenstein musical elements that have gone into this track wildflower. What else can can people expect to hear on this album? So red desert opening album. And it has a very crosby stills Nash like Americana Eagles opening locally like the lighter side of that song really odd how they came about in the same process. They feel like similar with the vocal vocal style. Did like Big Gang Hamis like big like stuff like that but it wasn't. It's almost like complete end of the spectrum. In front here's some depeche mode and on on the more acoustic verse stuff like were trying to get like Jeff. Buckley storytelling The Great Johnny Cash. And it's kind of a weird mixture of hike when we talk about wildflower talking about Anna and talk talk and then we've got the eagles and Mike Darker stuff like nine sales and like depeche mode and like I said like Woolas singer-songwriter oddest as well in the same way. When you share Tim and Paula. You know your impala here we are getting such a as you put survey Frankenstein of references and yet it so clearly five seconds of summer. I've been playing it in the background for the last couple of days. It's been out and every single time. My attention feeds. Because I'm taking care of my new little Kiddo. Immediately something happens. I'm like whoa. GotTa go listen to pick up the kid and coach. What's happening in the track? Those in the bud. Listen guys this has been a lot of fun. Thank you so much for joining us all right. Thanks for going through references. It makes me makes me happy pin to be on this. That makes me excited to make music.

Advice Session #1

"I ramble hi guys. Welcome back welcome back to anything goes with me. I'm Emma you know the drill I hope you guys are all doing. Well let me tell you what I've been up to you so the last days I've been moving okay moving from one place to another I left my old apartment so for all you guys know what my old apartment looks like. You're never seeing it again in neither my I'm out I'm out of that bitch so I'm moving into my new place and just for some context as to what I've been doing. I spent seven hours in my closet yesterday organizing it. It is done pretty much but I spent seven hours my closet and the reason why moving is hard for me because organizing is something very specific about and so I've been spending like an extra league double the amount of time I normally would make sure that everything's organized properly. Like I will rearrange things seven times before I'm satisfied and that is why I make my own life living hell but we're actually getting closer. I think we might finish the move today. We might be all packed not packed. We might fuck we might be all unpacked by the end of today so praying for that I still need to buy different furniture. Like some things need to be replaced. And there's definitely a lot of work still to be done but four now all my things being unpacked is job number one. So that's what I've been doing But let's get right into our podcast today. Which is a new segment. I'm trying to start over here So basically I've always wanted to have a segment in something whether it's my youtube channel or my podcast or whatever where I give advice because I love giving advice I beg people to let me give them advice like I think I benefit more from giving advice than people. Do receiving it probably. I'll literally meet a stranger and be like what's going on in your life. Do you need any do you? What do you what do you do? You WanNa talk about things because I think it makes me feel good because I know how good talking about things feels you know what I mean and I know that a lot of people aren't given the opportunity to talk about what's bothering them or what they need advice on and so a lot of the largest left kind of bottling things right and not addressing. What's bothering them? And I think that letting all those things go is just so important to living a good life and a happy life and I think that hearing other people's perspectives even more useful and I know for me getting advice from the people in my life that I care about has completely shaped me as a human being. I wouldn't be who I was without it. You know what I mean and so my hope here is that I can almost be like your big sister. Because I've never been a sibling. I've I'm an only child. I never had younger siblings. I wish I had on also too so I could give them advice But basically every few weeks. I'm going to have you guys. Tell me what you need advice on. And then I'm going to give you advice on that topic because honestly if one person needs advice on something. Chances are another hundred people needed by on that or even a few thousand or even a few million so like whoever ends up listening to this. Hopefully some of these things apply to you or if you ended up asking me on twitter a question or ask for some advice then you might be getting some direct. This might be a direct conversation between me and you and that'd be really dope so hopefully I explain that properly I'm only going to do this every few weeks or months. Probably just a little series extra added little moment not added. It's going to be a part of my regular regular dude. I can't talk today period. I just cannot talk today because I'm so tired from being in my closet for six hours yesterday that my brain is not functioning properly. My voice is like shaky. This'll be a part of a regularly. Scheduled programing okay But it'll just be spontaneously whenever I feel like I want a more deep personal conversation with you guys We could do a little advice. Column Advice Column. I'm can't talk still I just need to move on. Get into the episode All right first thing. Somebody needed advice on. How do you deal with anxiety? And how do you know when you're going to have an anxiety attack or feel anxious? Anxiety is a tough one for me. Because I'm still truly trying to figure out how to stop it while it's ahead type of thing you know I tend to get really anxious about my parents and their wellbeing that tends to be my biggest form of anxiety like I worry about them a lot. I think it's because they don't live at home. I don't see them every day so he you know if I haven't talked to my parents and like day and then I call them and they don't answer that will spiral me into a panic attack or anxiety attack or something of those sorts. Because I'll be like. Oh my God what happened to them. And the whole. I'm waiting for them to call me back. I'm freaking the fuck out and I'm getting better about it because I've realized that every single time I've had a panic attack or had an anxiety attack about that specific thing. It's always ended up being okay. They've always ended up calling me back like an hour later and everything was fine and all my all. My anxiety was for nothing. And that's always how it's gone right and so I think that a big part of learning how to deal with your anxiety is kind of learning from your past with anxiety and whenever you start to feel yourself getting anxious remind yourself. Hey this has happened before this has happened before. Tell yourself this has happened before and what happened last time. You know what happened last time? Everything was okay. Everything was okay last time. Everything's GonNa be okay this time and you have to remind yourself how irrational it is. Your fear is completely irrational right. There's no reason for you to believe what you're believing or what you're having you know anxiety about like if you feel like you're schedules to overloaded and there's no way you can finish it all remind yourself you've finished it before you've gotten it all done before in worst comes worse. Let's say you don't finish all the work you have to finish. That's okay. What's the worst that could happen? You're not GonNa die if you don't finish your homework or you're not gonNA die. If you know you need an extension on a work project that you need to finish. You'RE NOT GONNA die you're GONNA be okay you're gonNA live through it and you can explain everything it'd be fixed or communication with anxiety majority of the things. I Getting Zion about are things that I could have an easy conversation about in. It would be fine for example. Let's say you're going through a tough time and you can't finish school project you can't finish it. It's like you need to go to bed like you're just you're breaking down it's over. You can't work on it anymore. But it's due tomorrow. You can't wake up early in the morning because it's already four. Am this happened to me. You email your teacher and you say listen. I've done everything I can to finish this project and I can't do it Is there any way we can have an extension? I can have extension on this project Blah Blah Blah. You know no matter what your teacher says. Your anxiety is immediately going to half in its severity. Wants you communicate with the person that it's directly related to. And that's because I think anxiety forms when there's an element of mystery and once you kind of squash that mystery a little bit whether that's you know communicating with your teacher communicating with your boss communicating with a friend communicating with your parents. Then all of your anxiety mainly I mean a lot of it for me anyway. We'll go away when it's about a specific thing right Because then the mystery is gone. There's communication in place and you can kind of move forward in work accordingly to you. Know what you need to do to fix it when it comes to like friends like. Let's say you feel like you know you're fighting. Let's say you're fighting with your friend and you're like worried about the status of your friendship with said person communicate with them. Be Like listen because I've gotten really betting Zaidi about friendships and stuff. Communication with friendships is so important. Call up your friend texture friend even be like Yo. I'm feeling really uncomfortable with our friendship is right now. I just feel like we're not on a solid ground here and I care about you a lot and I don't know if I did something or even I'm angry about you about something that you did. Let's work this out so we can move forward because it's causing me a lot of anxiety and upset and I don't like being in this place and I know that you probably don't either so let's just work through the shit you know and I know for me that's always solve my friendship related anxiety instantly And you know but then we have the people and me who just kind of deal with anxiety that we can't explain where it's just like. Why am I fucking anxious right now? I'm doing nothing I'm laying in bed and I just feel this tight feeling in my chest and it won't go away the way I deal with. That is a few things I really like organizing one anxious. I think actually moving right now is really showed me how therapeutic organizing is for me was organizing my closet for seven and a half hours every time. I say the number gets larger. Lhasa said six and a half announced seven and a half. But just let me exaggerate. It's fun for me. was organizing my closet for eight and a half hours Was it kind of stressful? Yes it was but it was stressful like a kind of mundane. Whe like very just chill it was like okay. Yeah it's stressful to organize my closet. But this isn't life threatening okay so like I can deal with it and really took my mind off of everything going on in my life. I literally did not think about anybody else. I didn't think about anything. I didn't go on my phone. All I did was organized my closet for seven and a half hours and I'm not even kidding you when I went to sleep last night. I wasn't anxious. I always anxious before I go to bed. I went to sleep immediately. I didn't have any thoughts in my head. I feel like it cleared my mind in a way that like nothing else does for me so cleaning organizing and even doing a big project like redoing your whole closet or like doing a really big art piece. Just giving yourself a task where you won't be tempted to look up at your phone do shit like that. That's huge. That will really help. When you have an anxiety moment or even panic that that's kind of unexplainable. I think that putting yourself to work really really helps it. My Dad always told me that But just recently. I think I've found truly how useful that is. Shells mentioned that she wanted to know kind of out of no when you're GONNA have an anxiety attack or feel anxious or maybe even get a panic attack. I think it's a little bit different for everybody but for me I start to feel my chest getting really tight and so when I breathe like my chest is actually a little tight right now. I am a little bit anxious right now to be honest but not like bad. Just a tiny bit You know if you take a deep breath in and out of your chest feels tight back in mean that anxiety or panic attack or something is coming. That's usually all I can tell for me Also I've noticed I'll be moving really fast like I'll be like going on my phone and then turning it off and then going and doing something and then coming back and then turning my phone on and then going and getting water and then coming back like I'm just doing a bunch of shit that I don't need to be doing I've noticed I subconsciously. Start Doing Shit like that when I'm getting really anxious Also I notice I start calling my parents a lot like all like call my parents and I'll talk to them about something and then I'll hang up and then like fifteen minutes later I'll call them again and I'll start like doing weird shit like that and then I kind of like girl. You're going down a weird path right now. You may need to fucking light some candles and getting the damn bath or something like or organize your stupid closet. 'cause you're coming you know Such usually I can tell it's coming but I know some people have other types of reactions but those are mine. Thank you to all birds for sponsoring.

Thank you all birds moving on. Let's talk about something else. Somebody said. Please talk about what you do. All of your friends are absolute ship. You don't know what else to do because you have no one else I've dealt with this a million times But I've actually always found to be really useful long-term I think times in your life when you don't have good friends teach you more than times when you do have good friends. Don't get me wrong. Having good friends is so important in having a support system is so important but there are certain times in your life where you don't have a choice you know your friends suck and that's it. There's just sometimes in your life when the people around you are just not doing it for you and as Shitty as it is sometimes. There's nothing you can do about it immediately. You know what I mean And I think a big thing to do right now is instead of focusing on making new friends. This is a great time for you to distance yourself from people and kind of have a moment of isolation. Take some weekends to yourself. You know. Eat Lunch with your friends at school but then when you go home don't hang out with them after school. Maybe do group projects at school with somebody else. Just distance yourself from your friends for now and spend a lot of time with yourself and figuring out what your passionate about force yourself to be bored right now if all of your friends talking. You don't WanNa hang out with them. Don't hang out with them. Say you're busy in stay home even if you have nothing else to do in make yourself bored because whenever you force yourself to be bored you end up. Finding a new passion are finding something new that you liked to do that. You wouldn't have found otherwise that's GonNa make you a better friend once. You're ready to have friends again whether it's those friends or it's new friends take this time to re to really put some love in time and energy into your personality and who you are and take the seven to connect with what you who you want yourself to be for one in who you want to be surrounded around as well so like figure out what you do. WanNa waste your time with it what you don't. WanNa waste your time with not that like having good friends wasting your time but I mean you know right now. I've really great friends that I love a solid four of them. I would say maybe five and you know obviously sometimes I'll hang out with them in like not organized closet for example. Sometimes I'll hang out with my friends instead of like you know doing things that I should be doing like fuck in emails or something. They'll be like you know what I need a break. I'M GONNA go hang out with my friends. Some people would consider that a waste of time for me. I think it makes me a better person because if I'm at least my place in my life right now because my friends are good people And so they uplift me and they like give me new perspectives in life whereas like when you've shitty friends it doesn't uplift you at all. It's just actually a waste of time if that makes sense whereas hanging out with people that you care about in that like are good people. That's never waste of time. Although in some people's definition it might be but not in mind so anyway. I don't know what that why I went into that little tangent because I didn't really make any sense but yeah moral. The Damn story is take some time to yourself. Figure out who you are figuring out what kind of people you want to be surrounded by and then go back into the world a little bit and just start talking to New People. Maybe get like if you're old enough. I know a lot of people get jobs that like allowed me New People like I applied for a job at Oppress choose place a few years ago because I was fucking lonely and I wanted to make new friends and so I applied for the job at the press juice place so that I could become friends with other employees there and that could give me another place to find people that I connect with Even going to the gym or doing workout classes. I've made a lot of friends through that. So if the people at school or wherever your main plays of social interaction is doesn't have cool people. Try to find new places where you can meet people. You know And just go from there but I think durant instant thing that you should be doing. I think you should be doing is forcing yourself to be bored. If that makes sense moving on how do you handle being go? Sit especially if the other person made it clear that they lied you for a long time like bitch. What the fuck. Oh Yo fuck this shame. That sucks I dude okay. Let's get into it. This is the fucking worst because in I've learned now to knock it my hopes up when I'm talking to somebody because I just never know you know what I mean. You just never know you never know when you might get ghosted right Or somebody might do a little one eighty on you and be like. Actually I don't like you anymore. I did but now I don't. That's almost worse than being broken up with. Sometimes when you're like so excited to start this new thing maybe with somebody and then like you're almost there and they're like never mind. I don't actually fuck with you like that and then you're like. Oh Shit that sucks. It's almost like a break up in a weird way. I don't know if I'm like being too crazy here. But if you really like somebody and they really like you and they let you know that they like you and then they end up just kind of turning around on that. It's almost like a break up. And it fucking sucks but here is what I've learned. I've learned that once the damage is done and once you already like this person you're fucked kind of it's going to be painful regardless all you can do is just remember that this wasn't meant to be and some other person's. GonNa come along and it's a lot better than than actually deserves you because anybody who fucking is throwing your feelings around like that is just not worthy of you in any way like you should be talking to somebody who respects your feelings in respects the fact that you have feelings for them and is sensitive to that and if they ended up not wanting to reciprocate those feelings. They handle that in a way where everybody's happy. They're not just ghosting. You and being an asshole right. Maybe they're like. Hey I'm sorry I know that you know we have been talking for a while but like I just am not in a place for a relationship and like I don't really want to take this any further because I don't WanNa lead you on and I really care about you and I think you really great. Let's still be homeys period. That's great because what if somebody changes their mind. It's still hard for them. To write and communicating that is brave so like as long as their polite and kind and they still want to be friends and they're like cool about it then that's great but it's when somebody goes your ass where we need to. I'm about to throw hands for you. Number One. Ghosts them back. Okay if they ghost you don't fucking go back to them. Don't be like if they start ghosting. Uw like Heo view. Now you know fuck that. Fuck that if they're ghosting you and you are fully aware of it and it's not like. Oh they're busy at their fucking Mom's ranch in Idaho and they have no connection if they're actually gusting. You absolutely give them no more time of day and if they ever come back don't respond. I might be a little bit harsh here but if they'll do wanna do it again and you can't fuck and trust someone like that if they're just wishy washy they're they're in and they're out know they're holding their cold as fucking. Katy Perry would say. Don't mess with that because it's a red flag and you should know from then on that they're bad news okay but now let's talk about some things you can do before you like somebody if you just start talking to somebody right if you just start talking like you just talking to somebody and you don't if you like them yet but you're scared of kind of catching feelings because you're like fuck. I don't know if they're gonNA end up just goes to me or if we're going to end up having something. How do you prevent getting upset when you get ghosted because there's always a potential right? Here's what I do number one. I let the other person do most of the talking when it comes to like like not like most of the talking but I'm careful about the amount of effort I put in right when it comes to like conversations not because I don't want to have a conversation but because I'm scared of getting attached because I'm somebody who's very like I get very attached to people from conversation more than anything else like. Let's say I'm talking to a dude. I can think that he's cute. But if we have a really good conversation that's when I get a little bit messed up because that's when I actually like kind of catch feelings for a person in a sense so I'll try to be careful about you know I'm not GonNa like go to this dude that I just started talking to and be like hey like listen to this shit. That happened to me today. Like I'm so upset like you know my mom Trying to organize like our movers like lost all of our close coming up with a random scenario. I'M NOT GONNA go to this new person that I just started talking to you and start venting to and start making them one of my first people that I go to when I have a problem like you know the first people you go to when you have a problem like you're like immediately. I needed text my friend right like Oh my God. I need a text group chat like I have a great job with my friend Lee in a mandate and every time something crazy happens. I go to that group chat and I sent it to them. I send my problem to them. Don't make this new person. You're talking to that person because I've noticed that that makes it hurt so much worse when they ghost you right. Make sure you have a solid foundation with that person before you start really bringing them into your life into that way where they know about your day to day life and they know intimate details about your life and Shit because it hurts a lot worse when you get ghosted when you feel like you've opened up to them in this way I'm not saying opening up to New People is a bad thing. I think it's great but if you see potential if you're like I might like this person down the line save it save when you guys are dating even and you can actually tell them about this stuff in a safe place where you are opening up with the risk of getting hurt. I don't know if that's good advice. But it's worked for me because I feel like it kind of keeps me one foot in one foot out so that if this person decides that they're not into anymore or they like whatever I'm not GONNA get fucked over. I'm GonNa wait until I have a solid situation under my feet before I opened up to said person to the extent that I want to But also long story short if some dude ghosts you fuck him or girl if anybody goes you. Fuck them period. The next question is so good because I literally used to do this all the time. And it's just so something. I've dealt with some so excited next one. I would like advice on how to deal with wanting to please others all the time. Basically how to Nabi? A fucking people pleaser high. The CEO of the fucking company. Okay I have been a slave to wanting to please others for as long as I can. Remember. I mean seriously. I've always been a people pleaser. Don't know why I came out of the womb like this but I did. It's funny because I'm like a stubborn people pleaser like I'm a people pleaser then at the same time. I'm like Kinda stubborn so I don't know how those personality traits mix and I'm also opinionated. I'm very opinionated but privately. I think that that's what it is. I'm kind of stubborn and opinionated privately. Like with my family in within myself but when it comes to like my outward personality. I'm very much a people pleaser. I'm not opinionated at all and I'm not stubborn at all like okay for example. Let me give you an example. I'm a vegetarian. Let's say somebody wants to go get fucking WanNa go to a steakhouse where there's no vegetarian options and they're like. I really WANNA eat here. Where do you want to eat? I would be like? That's fine even though I know that I can't eat there like there's nothing I can eat there. I could maybe get a side of fucking Brussels sprouts and like a side of potatoes and then start. I will still be like no. That's cool because I don't like to cause conflict. I like the path of least resistance. I just like everybody to be happy and I just like to have fun and I just like everything to be easy right. I hate conflict because it gets in the way of the laughs. It gets in the way of the actual fun times of being with other people so I just try to keep everybody around me happy because then in turn that makes me happy because when people get into a shitty mood or whatever that dampers my mood. Because I'm very sensitive to other people's energy and shit like if somebody's in a bad mood I'm in a bad mood is just how it goes. I'm really bad at being resilient to that. I like absorb other people's Energy and I'm very like empathetic. I WanNa like fix their problem. Even if I don't even have the mental resources to do so that's will be my number. One priority is making them feel better before we can continue. Hang out or whatever and so. I've noticed that being a people pleaser keeps the morale around me better but the thing is that it sometimes can harm me it. It's like it's not fair to myself to like not speak up. You know what I'm saying when like I don't want to do something or I don't like something and it's taken me so fucking long to like finally come out of my shell with that. I think part of being a people pleaser is partially being a little bit insecure about your relationship with the people around you. I think that if you feel like your relationship with somebody is on thin ice or you feel like they could ditch you at any day. Then you're GONNA you're more likely to be a people pleaser. I've found that if you feel like somebody doesn't truly care about you unconditionally. You're probably GONNA WANNA please them as much as possible. Because then they want to ditch you right. I think that those two things have a huge connection. I'm not a people pleaser anymore. Because I've found a solid group of friends that I know wouldn't just fucking get up and leave me because I didn't want to go rock climbing with them. You know what I mean like. I found a group of friends that I trust to be loyal to me and vice versa. They trust me to be loyal to them and like none of us will just walk up. Get up and leave our friendship just because we maybe have a conflict of interest And that's kind of helped me stopping a people pleaser. I also had a few friends in my life that used to be like. Can you fucking not just say yes everything? Can you just not fucking say everything and I was always like? I don't know how else to live like. That's the only way I know how to live. But those comments stuck with me throughout my life and then just recently. I've been able to realize like I don't need to be pleasing everyone else if I don't want to do something. I'm not going to do it if I don't WanNa eat at the steakhouse with my friends because there's nothing for me to eat. I'm like let's see here. I don't WanNa eat there because I can't eat anything or I'll be like you know it's cool. You guys can eat there but I can't eat there so I'm not going like I'll just be like straight up and not waste. My time was shit and Gina. What I feel like. It's not only made my friendship's stronger but it's also like made me happier so it's really a win win my advice for you. If you're a people pleaser is just a little bit uncomfortable at first but every time that you see yourself kind of putting yourself out in a sense right like doing the inconveniences you that you don't want to do just somebody else find a kind way in your mind privately. Find a way in the moment to kind of let this person know that you don't want to do it or you aren't interested or you don't like the idea or whatever in a way that super polite but also proposes another idea because then you don't feel as bad about just shutting down and being negative and bumming other personnel. You're just kind of adding onto the idea so if somebody's like hey. I thought it'd be really cool if we if we went to this coffee shop after school but deep down. You're like I really hate that coffee shop. I don't WanNa go there. You'd be like Okay Dude. I'm so down to get coffee but we should try this other place boom now. You got what you wanted in a sense or even then maybe they aren't down for it then go back and forth whatever but like you know at least you stood up for yourself and you got to like put your two cents in or let's say you're working on a project with somebody and they're like hey. I Really WanNa make the background blue in. You're like I don't think blue would look for this color background on this presentation. Be Like I really liked blue but I really think that having a yellow background would really make the colors pop in his powerpoint. The other person's that's fine. Cool the yellow. They're probably not gonNA fucking care but it's hard to stand up for yourself like that and that can stay that works for so many other things so many more things in your life you know what I mean not just. Those small kind of inconsequential events. Like those kind of strategies. Work for anything It's just like muscle memory. You just have to keep trying to not say yes to everything and then it becomes a habit. It's almost like biting your nails. You just have to get yourself out of it next. Somebody wants me to talk about how I've bettered my relationship with my body food. This is again in ongoing journey. That I'm not totally sure I'm ever GonNa fully figure out and that's okay because I will just continue to work on it But I feel like I've actually gotten a lot better recently. Like within the past few months And so I'd like to share those things so I can't speak for other people I can't speak for what's worked for other people and I'm just going to speak for what's worked for me. I can't promise that this is GonNa work for you. But I think that the main issue I've had with my body is when I feel like I'm neglecting it when I feel I'm neglecting it. That's what makes me feel the most self conscious. The most insecure the most kind of like not satisfied with how I look is when I feel like I'm not taking care of it. I think the worst thing that you can do when you're feeling unhappy with how you look is just sit there and be upset about it right because that doesn't get you anywhere and I know a lot of people will say you know. Just stare in the mirror and tell yourself you're beautiful ten times it. Just that doesn't fucking work. I'm sorry it just doesn't fucking work and I'm not I wish Dade I wish it did but that is never worked for me and I hope maybe it will work for one of us. Maybe try that out and you know. Maybe there's a meditation you can do. I have never fucking that's never worked for me and I kind of thing that that's all just shit for people to say that's like a quick band aid fix. Just tell yourself you're beautiful in the mirror and then soon it'll be true. I've just never seen that work for me. What I always done is when I start to feel really bad about myself. I will put extra effort. I'll take the energy right. I'll take the energy that I was putting towards the hatred of my body and how it looked and I'll put it into making myself as healthy as I possibly can. Okay now there is a fine line here. There's a fine line here because there's a fine line between making sure that you're being healthy in over correcting right. So I'll explain that. And I'm not a fucking nutritionist. I'm not a health specialist but just based off all of the research I've done in my experience. There's a very fine line here right. You don't WanNa make your entire focus in life working out eating healthy taking vitamins doing research on health. You don't WanNa make that your number one priority. It can't run your life. Don't you can't let it run your life right. It has to be something. That's very secondary to your life because it's very easy to become obsessed with it but you have to do everything in your power not to become obsessed with it. The thing that I've done that has helped me is to the best of my ability. Do my research on how to have a healthy body. So that like it's not about how I look in the mirror either. It's about like living a healthy life so that I can live a long life right. Not only for my fucking children for my grandchildren for my parents. That will be alive. When I'm alive I it's not just about how you look in the mirror. I think taking care of your body and making it the best running machine you can possibly make it for all of the reasons that it's a good thing right. That's a great distraction as long as you don't become obsessive with it and try to be true with yourself if you're like okay. I'm actually kind of doing too much. You know I'm starting to get a little bit too obsessed and I feel like it's unhealthy. Be True with yourself about that in. Don't do that. I'll give you some examples. I would not recommend like. Don't go in start fucking following these weird online diets. Don't start working out twice a day because you WANNA look like don't do that Shit because that never works you end up getting burnt out in makes everything worse. It's all about balance. Make it work our team for yourself. I'M GONNA do yoga three times a week and I'm going to go on a walk twice a week or I'm gonNA run twice a week and on those days maybe I'll do a little workout and then I'm good. Don't make fucking schedule. That's unrealistic. Make something that you know that you can accomplish and just do it right and then that in itself creating a little routine for yourself. That's healthy. Not too crazy not something. You can accomplish something that you know that you can accomplish. That you know is a great start. Start with that or if you already have a workout routine maybe change it up a little bit. You know what I mean and when it comes to food obviously have whatever you want but also if you're feeling like you're not eating well do some research on how to eat more balanced and have fun with cooking healthy meals. You know what I mean and still enjoy whatever the fuck you want whenever you want. But that's a great first step is learning how to cook healthy meals. You enjoy and then start integrating those more to replace the meals that you eat. That maybe aren't as good for your body right not only will this help your self-esteem in the way that you perceive yourself in the mirror but it will also help your health rightly your actual internal body health and so there's just nothing there's no downside to putting a little bit of extra time and energy into taking care of your health and it should be a lifestyle as they always say. Aah They always fucking say. Don't make it like a diet. Don't make it a thing. That's something that you do for a little bit. Make it a lifestyle that you know. It's something that you can stick to and it's something that enhances your life not controls it. It's something that makes your day to day life better right you know cooking in in doing a little bit of exercise can become therapeutic for you and then intern. It's also you know making you feel better about yourself because you know that you're doing everything in your power to keep yourself as healthy as possible. So that is what I have done Hopefully that helps sorry. My Dogs are visiting my House. Right now In their walking around outside so you may be able to hear them but anyway let's move onto another question advice on feeling unproductive during this time you know. I've just kind of decided to surrender to it. It was actually really upsetting me in the beginning I was like God damn it. I'm such a Lazy Fuck. I spent at least a week in total out of this whole corn playing fortnight the entire day not getting up from the bed getting up from the bed to make coffee maybe twice getting up to take shit maybe wants and then taking getting up to take maybe twice okay. That was like I probably spent a total of seven days. Doing that and I felt shitty about myself but I just started to realize it's okay it's literally. Ok like it's not a big deal. This is a time for us to all reset and the second that you sit down. You're like hey if I need to take some days to do absolutely nothing. That's okay if you're doing nothing every day I can see how that can get a little bit shitty so you just start to make schedule for yourself. Be Like okay today. I'm going to go for a walk Do a little workout then. I'm GonNa Cook Dinner for my family or maybe just myself and I'm going to do a little bit art and maybe I'll do some fucking yoga and then I'm Gonna organized closet and you give yourself tasks for the day and then once you're done with those you feel better about like laying in bed in playing video games or watching tiger king or doing whatever you WanNa do because you know you accomplish something that day so I think getting a few things under your belt like accomplishing a few things. In the beginning of the day is super important so that at night you can just relax and enjoy the fact that we can't really do anything because although it's really shitty who says you can't make the most of it who says you have to mope around. Be Upset that what's happening is happening. Yes you can your heart can hurt about it and you can do your best to help everybody as best as you can. But you know it's not selfish to make sure that you you're taking care of your mental health and making sure that you're making the most out of it like that's not selfish. That's actually the best thing you can do for the world because if we're all taking care of ourselves we're in good spirits. It's better for everybody else that we might necessarily. We're not really around people. It's better for the people that we're going to talk to over the phone or the whatever you know what I mean the better mood that we're all in the better if that makes okay moving on God. This next one's funny how to speak to guys without being cringing dude. I don't think I even know I feel like I'm always cringe like I do. My Best Tanabe cringe. Like I will do everything my fucking power to not be Angie. Okay everything but I don't know if I'M CRAZY. I don't think I am but like I'm GonNa try to give advice but you might be receiving advice from somebody who's also cringe so like let's see what I could do. I don't know I there's no way for me to know the only people that are now that knows are the guys that I speak to or I've spoken to and they're not gonNa tell me so. Let's see what I can do. Basically if you're talking about over text I just texting normally like you don't need a text differently when you're talking to dude. I or or girl if you're vice versa. It works for all but let's talk about like in person. I guess I think the key when you're talking to somebody that you're kind of interested in or whatever is just to talk to them exactly how you talk to your friends and I know that that's kind of hard and scary because you're like okay but this is a new person. I need to like you know kind of talk like this or whatever so that. They think that. I'm don't try to be cool. Don't try to fuck in like say. Shit or use words that you wouldn't normally us take the pressure off yourself and just talk to them like you talked to anyone else. Try to forget for a moment that you're kind of interested in them and just like talk to them like exactly. I talked to anybody else. I've found that when people do that with me like when I've talked to people and they talk to me how I would assume they talk to their friends. It's charming because it's like you already get a sense. S like who they are especially when you are nude at talking to. You don't know them very well and you're kind of in the beginning stages of your friendship or relationship with this person. It's nice and comforting when they just talk to you like normal and you don't feel like they're putting on a face or putting on a show or whatever and there's no way that that can be Kranji because it's you you are just cringing to them then fuck them because you're probably not in there just weird so like completely being yourself is kind of a foolproof. I think it's foolproof is if foolproof. That would make sense because it's like I'm like really not smart sometimes with grammar my vocabulary super not broad anyway. Long Story Short Just being yourself. Kind of it's foolproof. If that's the right way to say it like you can't go wrong if you're just being yourself and being honest don't try to fluff up stories. Don't lie about Shit. Don't try to make yourself sound cooler than you are. Just be honest. Be exactly who you are. I can promise you that that's enough. I can promise you that because I've seen so many people talk to each other and I've been somebody from outside looking in and I have just seen people try to make themselves seem like they're like some sort of revolutionary extraordinary being in if anything that comes off his crunchy more than just being. Honest like yeah. Let me tell you the story about the time I shit my pants at school evacuate so much more charming and so much less grinchey than like being like yes. Oh One time my dad Buy me a pony in. Then it's like an also I have like a three million dollar private jet also in all that. Shit's ally like nobody wants to hear that. Be honest all right. This episode is going to be Hell along but I'm not really mad about it. I kinda like it next high so I want your advice on something. Heavy a freshman in high school and I was on this team at school that developed a bullying problem made me absolutely miserable. I know that lots of people are quitting because of it. I'm literally transferring to a different school. I'm just not sure what to do when I get there. How do you deal with the trust issues and mental health problems? That come with something like that especially just having time to myself in quarantine. I'm realizing how much this is affected. Me I'm really depressed and I feel like I don't have any friends generally for my situation. I love you so much I love you too. I'm so sorry that you went through that. That is so tough In bullying is the fucking worst and especially when you have to like you know move schools because of it although. I'm really happy for you that you're moving schools and then you have the opportunity to kind of start over in a sense and get out of that toxic situation. I think that that's amazing. So I'm really excited for you. I think it's really hard this. Can you know I'm actually going to take this to a broader scale here with just like kind of being traumatized from something in the past and how to move forward from it you know with bullying can be for in your case going to a new school In relationships it can be being treated like shit and relationship and then being scared to get into a new relationship. Because you're scared it's going to happen again Or with friendships. You know you're scared of making new friends because the last friends you had were shitty. This kind of Kim relate to everything you know. I think what you need to remember. Is that number one. Every shitty thing that ever happens to you anytime anybody treats you like shit in any scenario it is always a learning lesson always okay. I know that it seems just so fucked up an unfair because it is but you. You will learn something from this. Okay you learn something from this. That will be so valuable. You'RE GONNA learn to appreciate the people in Your Life. That are kind for one tree right in. It's also going to give you life experience. You know what I mean that you can now use to help others And I think that that's huge and I think that's really important but for your specific situation moving schools. Just remember that everybody is different. No two people are the same the people that were bullying. You're not going to be at your new school okay. This is a fresh slate. Remember that you never know what's going to happen at this new school. You've no idea what's going to happen. So don't spend time laying in bed staring at the ceiling wondering what's going to happen at this new school when you have no idea and that's exactly there's no way getting around that you have no idea and you will not know till you get there. There's no point in being nervous about it instead. Try to kind of manifest. I know this is kind of a little bit. Might seem like some weird shit but like kind of just imagine in manifest it being amazing right and get excited about the potential that it could be amazing. You could meet your fucking future person. You're going to get married to their. You could fucking meet the your fucking bridesmaids or groom's May what's The groomsmen of your wedding. You could anything is possible right so don't waste your time worrying about what could go wrong. Get excited about what could go right. And also just kind of let it happen as Tame Impala one said. Don't put so much pressure on it. Just let it happen. Okay and in the meantime try not to think about it too much right. Focus on other things. Focus on the present moment. You're not at the school yet. So just focus on what you can control right now which is getting creative in quarantine cleanroom talking to your friends and family focused on that. Shit right now in. Don't focus on that. I think it's GonNa be great in once you get there. Just try to have an open mind and try to talk to New People and just be as open as you can because as a new kid. I've been a new kid before and as a new kid. I think the best thing you can do is talk to as many people as you can. And it's so hard but try to remember that these people they're humans too and if you show. Hey I'm open minded. I WANNA talk to New People. I I could be a good friend. If you WANNA give me a chance type of situation people are GonNa want to give you a chance. I think people tend to be a little bit like more standoffish about the People. That are new. They don't talk to anybody because they're like okay. Well that person doesn't really seem like they want any attention from but if you kind of introduce yourself to some people if you like or you start little conversations here and there you'd be surprised how quickly you'll make some friends That will probably be really good ones. this is a fresh start. Run with it. You got this all right. I'm answer one more Haehem recently. I've been having difficulty in school and studying. I can never really focus and I always get bored in Class. And end up tuning. On my teachers Javanese studying advice that you use in high school thanks I love You. I love you too. So Oh my fucking God may tailbone is killing me. Because I'm sitting on the hardwood floor in my closet. I'm a mess right now. Oh my God you. Oh my God what's happening okay. I actually struggled with a similar issue in high school. Where like I just found class so I just thought it was so boring but I actually ended up getting good grades. So let me tell you my my secret right. Here's what I would do. The teacher would tell us what we were learning about that day right. So let's say the teacher was like okay today. We're going to be taking notes on this section of the textbook in so we'd have the textbook in front of us but they'd be writing on the board instead of listening to the teacher. I would tune out the teacher and I would teach myself directly from the textbook because for me that was more engaging for my brain and I got less bored because I had this task and I was teaching myself so it made a lot more sense to me number one because it was coming straight from the book and I was teaching myself and the teacher wasn't like putting it in weird terms but also it was like I was allowed to tune out the teacher because she didn't know or he didn't know I was still learning wasn't being I wasn't not being productive. I was still being productive but I was doing something that was more like engaging for my mind so that was one thing I used to do. when it came to studying. I think the best way the way I used to study it was. I would just rewrite everything down so like and it would take forever. It would take forever but it was really useful. Okay so basically what I would do is I would take my notes from the unit right the unit that we learn from. Let's say was science biology. We're learning about evolution I would take all of my notes. My detailed notes from that and I would make a study guide so I basically rewrite all of my notes in an organized way. It's a little bit less detailed but like you still have every single detail. It's just more clean and then make a study guide right and I'd rewrite everything now. The reason why that's useful is because you're not just like quizzing yourself in your head. You're actually forcing yourself. To rewrite something which really reinforces it in your brain and then I would have this study. I'd and then before the tests had read over it then I take the test in a usually that worked really well for me and then the cool thing about this is that what the fuck was that the cooling. This was that I could take this study. Guide save it and then at the end of the semester. I could pull all my study guides out. Have all these study guides and then I could study using those boom so that it wasn't like I was sifting through a bunch of notes as sifting through a bunch of organized study guides that I've made for each unit test right so that is what I did there and obviously you know. A lot of schools are laid out differently with their testing stuff. So this might not work for you like that. Might not work for you but that worked for me. Hopefully that helps Another thing in class I would say is to weirdly enough participate as much as possible. I found like if I fully participate in class. It would keep me more engaged in. I would be more interested if I was just sitting there kind of just like whatever letting it happen. I would not like I was so bored that I find myself zoning out you make it a goal to like. Raise your hand at least once in a class in like either. Add something to the conversation or ask a question. I can guarantee that having that goal make you more inspired to be involved in the class so that it makes the time. Go by faster if you're involving yourself because then you have a task. I think the problem in classes if you kind of give up you know what I mean. I've done it millions of times. But if you give a fuck it. I don't really care I'm just GonNa say here and like tune it out. Then you know you're gonNA end up putting more work in later trying to teach yourself the lesson so using your time wisely and either trying to be involved or complete opposite teaching yourself the lesson on your own if you can through the textbook. Okay y'all That's Today's episode. I hope you liked this advice thing. I'M GONNA try to do this every few weeks if you guys want. Let me know if you like it.

Monocle 24: The Stack

Sharmaine Lovegrove, The Summer Hunter, Shreeji newsagents

"Hello and welcome to the stack this week we speak with main love grove publisher of dialogue books home to authors were often excluded from the mainstream, and if all the events that happened in the last week, it's more important than ever to listen to their voices. Also the show he got. The Morgan is back with a new issue of Brazilian tied to the summer. Hunter and Monaco's friend send deep dark tells about new refurbishment of his brilliant new stand in Tuten street enjoy. From the housing London. This is the stack thirty minutes of print industry analysis and amphitheater was to by share. Coming up on the show, good news for printing lovers in London Sri Genius agents in Tuten. Street is open again and it looks amazing. We speak to the owner and monocle impala correspondent. He Card Ahmadian. Tell us about the new edition of his happy go. Lucky title, the Summer Hunter, but I on the show I had the pleasure this week to speak to remain main love growth publisher of dialogue books. This week we saw a rise in sales of books about race and anti-racism reading. Those books are good starts to bring change against racism and prejudice against black people me and Jermaine spoke about some of her new release and exciting authors, and about the importance of diversity in. In the publishing world, okay, say thanks so much for having me back I love Monaco. It's thirty great to be talking to you and to be talking to publisher. I think when we bookshop, imbalan-, and that bookshop has grown to become a imprints as Paul Brown, which is part of shots on the idea around dialogue is to really be an inclusive imprint. Say Not Refocusing Vibe Esotique, focusing on my what makes us different, but including people from minority backgrounds in compensation, adding voices to the mainstream, and I think that out really important of this being Paul of her shots, which is the second-largest Publishing House in the wild? It's a huge label. A amazing global publishing, House and Listen Brown we have great bronze office from Bamut damage and JK. Rowling and we publish Maya Angelou in the Palestinian. On Veronica, which is the feminist imprint, and it really felt like it could be a high on full dilute books as a place to have a activists conversation around what it means to tell stories from people from all over the world people from all different backgrounds, so we fight Kasan application, minority, ethnic people and disability, working class, and teach you I plus communities in Grapes and. And say we kinda see the books as being all a by an about these different groups of people who it's unfortunate that we even have to talk about them in grapes, but that's what society apart that society has led us down and say we look forward to kind of being able to explode onto the mainstream, and to talk about individual stories and experiences I'm brilliant writing. Free Fiction, nonfiction, commercial and mystery titles. Do you think there is i? Mean because from what I've been reading especially since you know. The protest started in the US because after George. Floyd's people are interested in buying books by black ride, even anti-racism books. You know to something like that. We've your authors as well. Yeah absolutely I mean we as an imprint. We have twelve black writers, and we've done that organic lay dot snow in that in protest to what's happened a with structural inequality and racism within the UK. It's a natural part of the fabric of what we did. I am a black women any. Publisher in CO publishing in the UK dot sobriety. Shameful stops I'm not proud about of what's really hard to get here and it's very. It's unique to be running a this imprint, but what I have is that people pay attention to not just. That own understanding of light will anti-racism means is coming to a need, but also understand what it's like to have a life as a black person and how we lived and how we? Constantly ways from the day of US living with racist systematic institutional racism from buff, you know from hospital black women giving birth in hospitals, challenging schools challenging the wet places challenge we face these challenges, every point in our lives and have done for hundreds of years, so these aren't new concepts to awesome, so why how with my books is like a range of titles that lead us from the Trans Atlantic slave? Slave trade and Free Caribbean America On but Paul saying we've got Beckham being gay and from the Midlands, we say many different times. Does that give you the breadth of experience? Say that you're not seeing someone left and I think that's what we really what people come away from us. A planning that is to antiracism that we're not Manila for every story that is told for every passing out there risk that. As, there's a million different lives elect and is very powerful. You know for someone, even someone that is not from the ethnic minority to read those authors, because then you get out of this kind of surface level type of protest, which which let's be honest with seen happening. You know I'm not judging here. Anyone but I think when you read those works now you have a better understanding of of. How is it to be from ethnic minorities or something like that? Yeah I. Think you know what's really interesting is up when you're doing the anti-racist. With books like why no longer wants to talk to white people about rice or white supremacy in May. You really really important titles that are really doing that work. And helping white people to understand what they need to do to become anti-racist, actively anti-racist van to appoint still kind of censoring whiteness, because it's a toolkit or white people say it's still kind of places the. The whiteness sensory vet because that's what he's. Aiming to do books that I publish like vanishing Hof, which is about two twin sisters who pulse as whites, which is quite common and one of them in the in the fifties, America one of them they run away from hi I'm from the South and one of them they want them starts living a life as a white woman than the other one is a black woman. See See this this cool. This core of two people that splits and how lives and the outcomes entirely different because of the trajectory being on amd. AMD because of how society embraces them differently because of how they choose to live, and that some thank God. When you're looking in within yourself, you can't really find that as a white person, so you really need to read these experiences and come to a new and fresh, and that also does the same. What as reading white supremacy is being. Does you have to read these books in tandem? Because you can't just go out unsettling, meet some black people especially during lockdown, a become friends and all questions and also a budget. So these books kind of these extra insight, super example rain by not by pool, Mendez which we publish this April. It's a really incredible story of Black Gay Jehovah's Witness Young Man. Who leaves his family in the black country and I'm becomes a sex worker in London pullman, absolutely astounding writer, and this is a debut that nobody else would really have understood. It so intersectional. It's the sexes amazing. And there's lots ovet, it's. I need to read that. As, they can't need to send it to you. And you know it's intersectional. Because this race, it's claws, religion and it's sexual age, and it's all skin questions about the world, and the thing is, is that as you see Jesse protagonist a move through the different stages of his life? Then there's so many questions that he's asking and it so brave a pool to put. This is a semi who? and it celebrate for him to put on the page and again. That's what but the reason you not censoring yourself. You're just taking in the information and I think that's the difference between reading, fiction and reading books are toolkits and furniture made I wanNA talk of course about cove nineteen. How do you think it's affecting a publishing I mean you seem to still be launching some of your books during this period which I'm sure it would be different rides. I'm sure there will be booked to a resort. You know people could buy the book in a bookshop. So how did it affected you personally? Hassled for dialup. burks I think that I am so lucky. I have a really really dynamic team. The because what dealing with voices and people from minority backgrounds in we're dealing with concepts around alien nation and offering than we're quite used to being quite bold and say we get a publishing when a lot of people move. And it meant that we created space all rain by milk, and vanishing half to mention, and what that meant is that we came up with a huge range of identity. We did a dial clown show once a week every Thursday. We did an instagram live with my office. I would interview them. just to ten weeks. Eight o'clock every day and it was sponsored by oils, so people could get twenty percent of books that haven't been done before. We have a changed on instagram page that went much more Boko is activists, so we have a whole new look, we all celebrating prides we ought just really in a coal, and during this time of lockdown, and with the process happening then we won't say amplified up Black Rights is essentially twelve lot prices on the list and say far, and by the end of the year we'll have fourteen, so that's the thing with us is like innovation. Is The cage I think publishing as an industry I think we're going to really see the knock on effects. Later I don't think that this is the moment that we're really saying. It was saying great books like Crew Dad's just. Owens just how the crew sank. We great books like that United Selling. Millions of copies of this time. You know it's absolutely astonishing to see it, so books are selling just in a different way, but while we're gonNA, see the knock on effect is where people have moved books to the autumn, and that means the ultimate sexual, which is usually really packed is going to be absolutely bursting, and then we're going to see that next spring, and then we'll have to see what happens with budgets money you know where if people have a publishing houses made money or not, while we're really. GonNa Struggle with. With with the indies and the lack of money, but comes into the indies that don't have that big distribution model in the way that we were shots. Those of the publishers, great publishers like Jack Around on nights, all will influx press for example who are just amazing, important publishers that really feed pipeline in some mainstream publishing, they of the publishers that we need to kind of look out for Paul as funding for Bam visit campaign for them to ensure that they can survive us. I think that's GonNa. Be the biggest difference is like in DC looks like bookshops and for the publishes. That was Charmaine Grove from dialogue. Books make sure to follow their social media pages for more information on their authors. Now we had to my hometown some Powell where monarchy card modano leaves his not only Monaco's correspondent in the city, but also publishes. Title offering great tips on where to go in Brazil interviews with the coolest local artist, and the title is called the Summer Hunter. It's a nice relief in a country that is going through an incredible difficult period economically politically in healthwise, but here's Ricardo telling me more about the latest issue. We are leaving in a big challenge. Days for the summer. Hunter is is a huge challenge to to try to talk about summer and outdoor life and healthy life during this pandemic time, but we're trying. We are trying hard to keep doing our business well. We launch our thirty like math ago less than a month ago. Right in between the pandemic, so we non launch because we got the magazine the printer and had no, no no newsstands, no coffee shops to to deliver the magazine, so we are waiting the the right time to official launch the magazine. And as I said, we are hundred thirty pages this issue so bigger than ever very happy to keep doing a physical thing. We truly believe in physical. Physical contact beside the digital content as we have as you say, it must be challenging because you're magazines, such a happy magazine very similar. Even the names called the summer hunter. I know that people can travel, but at the same time I I'm sure people want some relief from all. Those horrible stories were reading every day including Brazil. Let's be honest is a difficult political moment as well but I guess you have to balance right. You have to give the happiness that people need, but at the same time just be careful not to offend or not to be not pretend that nothing's happening in order to me. Yeah this. This is a big challenge for us as well as I said we. We're still trying. We're still. Doing Movement to figure out the Zach way off doing content that we can deliver happiness we can deliver. Inspiration a time to relief, but at the same time not to cause former, the fear of missing out, or as I heard Migo meese going out. Because most of the people cannot travel. This time cannot go to. The beach cannot even go to the square to take a son so. It's kind of difficult to find. The best way to inspire and not calls migo or formal tangible, some of the features in the latest Sherman I mean there's some Nice provides a nice profile of the city of delaying some interesting characters from Brazil. If you just give us just a little preview for those those. Don't have issued their hands. Distort issue of the magazine. We focused hundred percent in Brazil. And you wanted to keep doing this in pretty much. Solar side of Brazil beside the dark government who is to have a solar side as as people so we went to lane. We went to some ways money. You know I never been there before have been there. It's over, but I love to go. And City. It's amazing. It's a mix of old Lisbon and Cuba lots of a Portuguese tiles. The old downtown is a ghost town during the day and pretty much burs didn't deny a lot of bars i. follow them of always really. Also Belay. The B side of board to sit here so most of the People Brazilian and foreign, When they plan to go to by day, thing about Portugal but pretty much close of partic-. Just cross the river. There is more Tau Out Sandra with amazing. Is The beach where where German? Sir? Football team stay during the the road coping two thousand fourteen. So we focus one hundred percent in Brazil cities of Brazil bitches Brazil and also characters, musicians artists photographers. And now of course some glance at magazine. They had to change because of what happened. You know if somebody's interested in buying a copy How does it work out 'cause I knowing the pasta used to be distributed in certain places. But now you're actually selling the magazine, so so tell us how you're dealing with the business side of things. As I said we, we launched an exactly. The pandemic the quarantine, so we are planning to start to sell in Hallo Christopher and Lisbon, but we are just unable to the magazines to the post so this time we are salmon through our website. and. Also with one off stores hearing some power that also sells online that you know 'cause Ajayi. So they're the big partner of us as I said before. Our business is not sell magazines, so try Har Sue launched the magazine previously paid by brands and truly believe this way of business, so one of the excuse that we we start sell besides given the magazine is because his larger is three times bigger down the I t wishes and I. Think people value more when they have to pay something than to get them free, so we could we could. We could still given free the magazine, but I think people value more, and if you are in a store in a coffee shop. Near stand and your free. The magazine will be with other free products. You never be on the on the. I don't know how same English veteran Ryan the found of the storm. Yeah now if you sell. You you get a VIP immigrant way of his word. In Coffee Shops and newsstands and stores, and finally we just went to ten, because it's nice to have a fellow Brazilian guest as well when it comes to media I. Just wonder which type of Brazilian media reading during the lockdown. Is there something that you watch every day? You're or a magazine that is reading. I read a lot. We magazine and last three issues they are. They are very focused on the quarantine and politico. We shoes all the pandemic times. I've been reading quite obscene cone four five one. Which A NEWSPAPER ABOUT BOOK! I've been reading global funded some Bal. Also read The New York Times. Subscription of Financial Times. TV Global News A. LOT NOT CNN. NOT CNN at all. What else? I think that. You know what I'm just trying to sue. Dedicate one two hours of my day to read or watch the news beside this time tried to disconnect the reality in a good way, because if you want, you can keep watching and unwritten about the about the bad kneels of zero and road twenty four hours a day and I think we. Just don't need to. Keep, consuming all the bullshit of on our do, and tells every day every time every hour, and I'm trying to focus on my sanity and my business so when a wake up beside magazines and. Websites I've been listening a lot podcasts the. At some Paulo. What soon to host by. Rich of Jim Slash global website. There was a card from the summer hunter based in Brazil. And now we had somewhere a little closer to Midori house in London's Marylebone Shreve. News agents on Shootin Street was founded in ninety two and has an impressive stock of magazines, but now the space has been completely refurbished, and you'll be able to buy your favorite Thai twos, and even read it with a Nice Cup of coffee in their new reading room, and the best thing owner and Monaco. France guard is still running the show. We spoke about the project, and how people are still very much craving for their favourite sprint titles. Yeah, it's been on for about probably five to six months and I'm really happy with the outcome I'm. Think the regulars should really be happy with what's happened and. It's about adding on what was already building on the heritage of the store for so many years. It's not about in any way being different, but allowing more to take place so the addition of the seating the coffee. And the space downstairs is all about a connection with print and how we would like to grow that. And create more awareness and be more welcoming than before. Of course you know there are not many people in the streets. As as as he was before the pandemic, but just during our interview could women like she wanted to buy a copy of a magazine, so I think people are slowly going back because magazines are so essential as well right, I think people have been missing that sense of being able to meet people and again the difference between digital title and the print idol is being able to hold that magazine in your hand and read through it. Dispute on an IPAD so I I really felt that people are definitely wanting to get back and by that newspaper by that magazine or become more aware of something that they didn't have before. And now you have coffee and some cookies as well. Not Not only the usual hurry bows and kind of COQ, which is used to hurry folks. I don't think again it's not about. Reducing it's about adding within the context of whatever we can do, so it's not. That, it's any less a newsagent than what it was before, but it is so much more. And, it's a nicer space for people to be in and Nice. Oh for people who didn't know where it for the first time. It's quite a different experience, so the people who've been coming, so I hope in its entirety it really. Provide something for new customers. And just talking about magazines itself, how do you how how's the moving? Are People still looking for their favorite titles? Because you know, we're hearings a difficult time for the publishing industry, but but I think there's still very much a need for the bone fleas by annuals. I mean you carry all all of them over here? I definitely think there is no slow down in that way. In fact I think. People are probably discovered more during this process when they've had. To look at magazines and had to look at books that they've had in their storerooms in their libraries or on the coffee tables. And make that connection with actual print. So I don't see it changing I only see it improving. And, like any other industry of. The people who will have? The right content create the right. Feeling or Connection for the reader will definitely not be going away. I think it is a growth industry. Providing you creating the right product. I don't think it's going to diminish. Finally just tell us a little bit about the inside space I mean the design changed a lot. You always had an amazing space, but most of it was quite. He didn't from the customers, but now it's very much on show in any look stunning. I think it was hidden for a good reason. It wasn't working knife, and we will using it as a very traditional space for stalking magazines, doing our deliveries to customers. I think this has been reimagined by Gabriel in a really really nice. Way. and. I think it is so much more than what else before. And Very happy to allow the public to see it now. That was sent a guard from Sri newsagents. Only yesterday, and yes, it does look beautiful indeed, and of course I bought a few titus as well. Well. That's it for this week's show. My tank store editor hall usual if you have any comments or queerest few to write to me financial at F. B. Monaco Dot com remember we're back next.

Talking Tesla

August 5th 2019

"Hey legendary bojangles melby for your daily this on even know the date. What does it fourth today so it's gonna be the fifth it's going to be monday. The fifth that is i guess because i'm actually recording this in a chevy impala in indiana. That's right lies. Newborns goes a chevy impala in indiana. It is very hot right so and very humid but we hear it a winning and it's the sunday party and the houses out of control but i've decided just to slip for second and <hes> do this show because i missed it on friday and i'll be flying back tonight and by the time i get hun- it will be late. I'll be tied. They'll be no <hes> ilan dealing tonight but a couple of things to chat about those people here in indiana near indianapolis about half an area of the big city a have relatives here have been coming here for a number of us fifteen years or so and the last few times obviously been looking for electric vehicles and found absolutely none of them but this time probably a a couple of years since i was he lost a lot of model threes not like in california model threes where you can't spit with that sprang mucus of six or seven of them but here this this differently an increase in the number of tesla's even a couple of xs just driving around here in what is basically a giant suburbia land so that makes me accelerate although i was also looking mm force of charging infrastructure at the local walmart's and at the drug stores and i didn't really see it again in california. That's how to spit without hitting being sort of a level to judge but anyway it's good to see things moving along here as well. Let's first of all talk bad free unlimited supercharging detroit because tests or has announced that they guarantee do free unlimited supercharging again now this is after they had it when i came out and it was a big thing. A lot of people bought their tesla's. You're at free limited supercharging for s an ex. It went with the vehicle. You would sell the vehicles. The free judging would go with a vehicle was pretty cool. They don't want away and eel incorrectly said this. It's probably not cost effective to do this to have this free unlimited pa- judging for the life of the vehicle and instead of changing a number of different ways and also said this which i think is really important. It probably doesn't promote good behavior and what i think he meant by that is when you've got what free supercharging you tend to drive a lot and more than you otherwise would. If you didn't is my guess or you charge at the super charger when you should charge wjr at home for example. I know a lot of tesla owners when they first got there. S an exit stuff became you know people who started to drive a lot just for fun and you can see wiping out sort of the cabin footprint of having the cow where you would normally just drive say a hundred miles a week for work and a few other things but then you just the camera so nice to drive roy and it's free in quotation marks to drive you end up driving two or three hundred miles a week because he's been the weekends destroying so it could see that that would be another way that it doesn't promote wrote good behavior but it's back for how long i don't know we'll help sell cars. Yes which ones i think s an ex the smart thing here is for this is just to be an ex and for it not to be on three otherwise they won't have that differentiator and i think right now what we're seeing despite what they're saying is that there is sort of because of three this pressure on s and x reduce sales because the three is such a good mcadoo. I really need to spend twice as much on x. So you need to continue to differentiate it. One way to do that is free unlimited supercharging and you can do the math on it because these are such expensive cows anyway anyway and you can basically role that cost in to the charge for the car so you can save the love. This coat might use five six seven thousand windows with soup judging. Let's call it free and just add it to the price of the car but there's something psychologically better having just spent a lot of money in a cab but saying at least i get free supercharging. How do they fix this promoting good behavior thing. I don't know it's a little bit <hes> of the same old thing that would test that they say one thing and then they do another another and it's you think it was a deeply philosophical point that was put forward by ilan and then five minutes later when it doesn't work they just change it. It is just part of ilan on and it is part of tesla. Whatever is true one. Week may not be true. The next there is a general philosophical move forward to improving renewable energy the and sustainable cars and all of this stuff but in the details they are all over the place like a duck's breakfast. Speaking another reason to connects is that they're one of the lease stolen cars in the u._s. We have data on model three it but we've known this for quite a long while they have really not stolen very much. The old s and the ex and that's harshly because they <hes> plugged in a lot of them are plugged at night charging up in the garage and stealing cows house often. Is you go for the car. That's the easiest to get that sort of sitting out on the road or it's in a parking lot and i can quickly like jump and get the heck out of it breaking into somebody's house to do that. Increases versus the degree of difficulty so that may be one reason another reason maybe that there is a bunch of security features that are on s. x. Three like century mode but also like the fact that you can track a- and so for known for a long time that is an exce not very often stolen so this just makes you feel a lot better right. The most stolen car in the united states is the challenger. It's our t. hocutt. It's about sixty. Five seventy thousand dollars stolen a lot now the reason i went to stolen these multiple one. It's a hassle having a cast on going out and going with house macau. We're going to go to work right now. It's not day and insurance costs obviously at some point if you have the most stolen cub of the lease still there's gonna be some difference in insurance cost based on that and i expect that modal three we'll have the same kind of it'll be the same kind of thing with model three it will be very very uncommonly stolen next up is the the boring company in china so you wanna speaking at a official intelligent conference in china at the end of the month or twenty nine and through food and i said it'll be interesting to see what comes out of that but at the same time they're launching the boring company in china. They recently raised one hundred twenty million dollars plus. I also assigned fifty million dollar contract in vegas and so this will be interesting unlike here in the u._s. Where there's a lot of skepticism as all of different groups that are trying to say the burn company you stupid. I think in china just like we saw with or a single gigafactory three if the feds in china get on board with boring company you'll see a massive number of boring holes being built so fast and this will actually be the proving ground for whether it actually works. I still think we don't really know you know. If this is another genius idea these small holes that you can build very felt that you put electric cousin or if it's <hes> failed but i think in china will find out very quickly so don't be surprised if in the next few years if it's working you see small number of boring holes in china and then a quite massive number of boring holes in china you can imagine somebody like shanghai with the population density that has traffic problems has if this works you'll see thirty different levels of boring company putting holes because that might have a real effect and we won't see that here until the proof of concept discern ever since it's a little bit set actually because the u._s. used to be very gung who used is to be the leader in all of this stuff and i think you're seeing this sort of the post american world where china really is for financial reasons just for growth reasons particular logical reasons and because of the way they run their government that they're going to the leaders in a lot of this stuff and although the technology might be in our started but in the u._s. It's really gonna get developed in other places. I got a really funny picture today from a friend of mine kevin mill and he sent me a picture of go in a ten gallon hat and he says helen will it be until the first country song is about <hes> an electric car or a cow that has a hi than drives itself a self driving car that leaves a man from the country and goes off with another man from the country. I thought it was funny and intensely ashley europe. Let's talk about that for a second kaas out down a role in europe by a fairly massive amount and yet in tesla tesla tripled its <hes> first half of the year sales compared to last you and they're the best selling premium sedan in the u._s. The model threes so again in the face of reducing car sales across the world here. Here is tesla increase in sales. You know doubling tripling castles becoming the best selling premium sedan in europe diesel car sales on the other hand into have crashed so when you read about you know demand for tesla we have to remind ourselves the demand for cause of rule in europe in china in in the u._s. studying to go down whereas testses going up and so overall the story for tests so right now is really pretty good even though they might have to sell awesome free supercharging to get people to buy the more expensive s an ex finally today. We'll talk about doug. Dogma is a mode you can have in your tesla so that if it gets hot in the car the air conditioning turn on keep the temperature sort of under one hundred degrees for example well attested use a fam- that if you put on doug mode but then manually change is the fan speed before you get at it actually turns off doug mode so this is a fairly big bug you think that the animals and the cara going to be protected but you change the fans beta and and not huge bug but the good news within forty eight hours tesla started pushing out a fixed fullest and this is why over the software updates are a huge urge massive really almost advantage. That tesla has over current traditional automakers. That'll change change fairly quickly. The just the way tesla is able the do this stuff huge sums mojo but the show is ellendale. It's part of the token tests on network. We can have a big show allowed to a grand show type this week in the new upgraded studio and also to you more tomorrow at won't be in the cabin of a chevy impala where there is no dogma and where it is currently approximately one hundred eighty degrees. This is good and right now. I'm dying here. Talk to you tomorrow.

Hello Nice to see you. Most listeners have probably heard of local bitcoins but they may not be fully aware of what it does or how it works Sebastian can you describe local bitcoins here so local bitcoins in the sense of course it's a place where people can trade with Bitcoin so they can buy and they consultate <unk> but that local bitcoins in car is that it's from people to people and of course it's different than exchange so all idea is the the it's it's it's the craigslist but especially the US us up to know dwell so it's Kinda fun blaze for beat going be able to meet and create an advertisement that I want to buy Bitcoin bitcoin but that is basically but the local bitcoin is about and Mika. Can you walk me through one example of how a buyer and a seller transaction on the platform yes so <hes> the buyer. Let's say I wanted to buy Gaza so I go to go out beat coincide and create create the account to also Chris on and we talk on by get this beachgoing wall that aspect of it is God and with this bitcoin Wallet Dyke on dress verbiage going in and out so <hes> after that I I in a search for for advertisements on on local beat guns dot com and when I found find a suitable advertisement let's say for example that I want to use a sweet do settled abandonment for the beat so I really search for for a adamant documents that advice <hes> sailing the beat goes going with sweet bay meant so after I I have found a suitable advertisement from the side I will I will start to drake by by replying advertisement and and what happens Dan. This is the amount of beat he'd gone about to buy we'd go through our escrow wallets and then lets us. We are doing the Bannon us we will. I make the dress for two to the seller of bitcoin using the speed <hes> at work on and once we both me as a buyer on the seller off the beat goes agree that does respondent this is a uh Don <hes> we both <hes> marked abatement aren't the dreyfus dominant on that point the boy and the local because dot dot com service escrow had releases the beat goes to me too. I local Bitcoin's Eh count wallets where I got then we retrial them is needed and so you named swift is one example of ways in which buyers can pay but what are <hes> and I was going to say what are all ways in which virus can can pay but obviously you don't need a list every single one but just give some examples of the full range yeah well street gabby all e Bay and it really doesn't matter walt these like a settlement die I mean if users how some unknown or new due Bam and mental in in in their local area gun also agree to you stop one so we don't in essence lead so limit the author of the trade so it's just whatever the the seller is willing to accept well mostly of course they are son aspects. It's really meeting there because of the safety of <unk> uses and so on but it's pretty much open for the USA decide that explains the other currents in the bitcoin. It's gone without a currency in what would be an example of a way that's unsafe to pay with your so the castrates while sexually disabled during the Spring and Davis actually kind of left the news especially from our competitors at noticing that we remove the castrates from them Dave actually small discussing the company if he should keep it and help people will see it but then again it's very limited how many people were still using it so we didn't say it as important anymore but it was also that there are problems with the customers because many using escrow service the whole idea is that you don't completely trust the author politics. If you trust completely out the party then you don't need extra suit can transfer bitcoin directly Walla Walla but I've been you need this cross service. There is not complete respite with the part is of course if you have to meet the person face to face Detroit the cash. It's really properly the safety issue bounden. It's also really hard for the proof that the cash has been drained it what if other that I did transferred the cash out the bud says no it did not happen so there is really hard who had to prove this kind of cases so essentially it was kind of because it would be like difficult to resolve disputes that was kind of removed as one of the options yeah. That's actually chilly. One of the reason Davis also regulation push. It's not really had that in the regulation or at that time but view demand reason was that it was safety end the dispute it did cost cost but then again kind of the benefits unused <unk> actually Mika has some numbers also collected the help of Gus threats was Mak- what percentage of the transactions were cash traits when we initially decided to to <hes> stub boarding gus on our black for the amount of revenue that was generated from from gastritis was <hes> less than half bro Obstacle <unk> revenue so it was just this this <hes> really small branch dot. We decided to got done. I mean there is Komo justification for our of the survey so so was it more popular though in certain geographies like in a particular our country for instance might be you know I don't know like twenty percent of the transactions there even if it was only half a percent of your revenue overall for all and there wasn't a clear market area or or anything like that where it was used more and then places it was more like where we had a user's anyway. They were always couple of August ghostwriters. Also there saw the light. It was quite steadily spread amongst the Marcus. It's okay we are like present. You know these. These got gusts rates in all it's. It's really confusing. Talk to me. I mean when I'm I out there. In the light encountering other bitcoin nurse on they learn learned that I've worked for the local BITCOIN's Gosh we we usually start talking about local bitcoins at many dive. Stay talk about these things that people need in some places and they exchange gas for going blindsided and that's really like a confusing for me because I I don't see Lopate guys doing that that I I mean we do that <unk> Dazs. It's it's not completely true yet. Yes you can do do also that <hes> the people who does that they so small percentage of our wishes use or <hes> that you also think of it as non existing writing but I do understand where this is coming from. I mean in the summer of two thousand thirteen the Majorie deal alligators alligators were gus strata spot already. Dan Doth the two thousand thirteen ghostwriters where only one third of the wisdom our base and when we come to the two thousand sixteen the number of gastritis was like less than five percent of I use are so we might be considered. <hes> ask platform where we're gus rates. Were done longtime goal lots. What's I mean longtime ago? In beachgoing were three years so long time I think that is definitely true <hes> but but I mean there there comes time to every bunny to like streamline the busness I and concentrate to the core the business app and when you have something that these used like our skin at generating less than half of company revenue and you are in this streamlining malt those things just like get got off. I also also vote for that. Because of course the mission is to bring Bitcoin to every city of the world of allow everybody on the planet the threat with Bitcoin saw in that picture the gushed rates is not important it started matters that really matters yeah I mean I think probably some of the anger that you kind of experience from similarly users or some. The coin is about this is that I think there are people who've you your services somewhat political at least in concept the idea <hes> of allowing people to to trade peer to peer typically means more anonymously and under certain certain jurisdictions where perhaps people don't have very much financial freedom that could be very very important service and so <hes> you know for them. I think that they view this says like an important kind of <hes> we it's almost is like for them of a political stance or or something but in a way maybe I I feel like the the passion that they feel about about that is sort of similar to just in general where you notice in politics that there tends to be some people who feel passionately about one thing and then the majority of the population unfortunately doesn't even if it's kind of a worthy <hes> stance and so <hes> yeah so. I think that's what I'm hearing. <hes> you know when you talk about the disconnect between what your users are saying and then how you see things from the business perspective and also that of course but we have no this is that it might be that in developing countries. What kind of the core things is that people on eight instead in in case of Bitcoin is speed different than invested abroad so for example the CASTRATES straights? I understand this that there is the idealistic way of doing it but if you in developing countries and you kind of want the for example safe money and save it from the inflation. I don't know if they go and see the cash option. Not It's more important than the terrorists that option shen save yourself from the hyper inflation for example but that's actually why I was asking about whether or not cash traits were more popular in certain certain geographies because in some of the developing countries are they're kind of like <hes>. Are there enough options for Payments Mints for people. Do you know what I'm saying like like in certain geographies is that the case where cash is one of the main ways that people transact and if so is that kind of preventing people in that country from getting access to Bitcoin is actually a really interesting question of course like I said the an Oxley mentioned that of course be based out this Sunday the NFL looking that it's going down and even though the more people from everywhere in the world coming inside they using less castrates but that is really interesting of course that might be the Thaddeus huge market out who are only able to use gusts and that this. I really feel that it's really important because if there is that kind of user growth there should be a bitcoin service fulltime as well yeah I would like to. I would like to argue that that we consider those countries which are experiencing hissing hyper inflation <hes> they don't like to use gas because you have to use so be bias of Gash. It's easier to to use some guy doth backs transfer or whole pie money and also what we see in <hes> in developing countries that they are they they are in many ways leap broking <hes> to to mold and Mold Beila me needs are all all these these APPs that you use on your phone phone from your phone at people are actually using <hes> ah those kinds of payments dots instead of Gash yeah that makes sense but this is really interesting folk bacon of course if I understood the coordinators of the UN is making research on this but of course there is sin this kind of societies and Lizards Organization also research take because I have to admit that me or the company of course we are not clearly it specialists to understand how in developing countries people up beheading ahead <unk> understood a bit but how they are using bitcoin unhealthy <unk> we use the going to future of course this also also our vision that would give them a service but it's really hard of course the really know how people in different markets different areas. I yeah and I actually think one other kind of <hes> difficulty in trying to do this. Research is that I imagine when and people are not under duress that then of course they're happy to use these different services but if you look at what happened in Hong Kong recently with the protests there as you know a lot of Hongkongers were using cash to pay for their subway tickets to go to the protests rather than any using any sort of payment method that could be identified back to them and so you know these like you instead of just generally looking at you know like developing countries or something would need to be maybe more specific like geographies that are undergoing some kind of political upheaval where they I don't feel comfortable transacting with their identities something like that so I understand it. It would need to be something where you would need to be kind of the right a place at the right time to to get the full picture. It's it's except like that yeah yeah so but I think that is why p you know some some of there's some pushback on this because I think some people who like the idea of peer to peer trading of local bitcoins than understand that if it's it's not offered <hes> the cash transactions than in times of duress than won't have that option <hes> so actually let's just go go back though to the very beginning <hes> how local bitcoin Scott founded the founder of the goal yes it Amir Sir saw the our our tried to drive to like find ways to buy beats going <unk> Don guy know flag didn't find any good services and ah saw it is either to create these <hes> these G- reckless die both plays where you advertise buying or selling at Austin verse version of the local <unk> created it was really like Don in a few weeks or something like that and in the beginning of of of Logo bitcoin because there was no way off creating any revenue and it may be in hall fear of the beginning winning or one year after the beginning that escrow service was introduced and with the escrow service the goal bunny was able to generate revenue us us we charge like one percent off the amount of escrow beat goings during the trade on basically that's that's the basis of the component that we still are running running broadening the enticements base and <hes> Bro adding various <unk> Shari's but users are making kings of trade and you charge that fee to the seller right yes and so are there any other services that you you have begun to offer over time or is that really you know just kind of your bread and butter and that's the main way that local bitcoin's and makes its revenue there has been like a local bitcoins. ADM's at some boy van and we had these invoicing service got sombor. Maybe maybe there are authors that I am not that well aware of but we we are GonNa fly be ah focusing on streamlining and <hes> to to the main product. I'm trying to do it a school district as we got and how has usage in reach of your platform changed over time yeah so yes he did accelerate the check the volume bloom so Hamas status transaction ongoing on the platform and this is really interesting for listeners as well so they are Blah la flick sources where you can compare different experiences ads writing poems San Services like local bitcoins going dance then we can say of course at before two thousand seven in the market less much smaller but it is growing coming steadily and of course Dan the growth was insane during that year but the interesting part deny that of course David price shirts it ended like seventeen thousand dollars pep bitcoin then in the drop down but the volume mm-hmm of local bit goes has been it has been named Blida must've save an average of two thousand seven Dan and that is insane and Mika actually not something really interesting about if the bitcoin price remain so if you can set it yes yes oh I mean I think that we have these <hes> steady growth. We have had this steady growth. <hes> from the beginning of the company they just seems to be growing and growing in but one one thing that affects the <hes> the the speed of growth is that if the Bitcoin Bryce is moving where we seem to have more growth so when the IT comprises going down. We have a little bit more growth on Wendy. bitcoin price is going up. We have a lot more growth. When the beat gun bryce days some woods stable we still have growth but it's not that bad beak when the bryce is is actually so basically basically what you would say that we are growing with the Bitcoin yeah that makes sense obviously a being kind of like an on ramp as the price grows that reflects more people coming into to the system so obviously we've been talking about kind of the way the platform has changed over time and Sebastian so wide local bitcoins change shit CEO at this time previously the CEO's were you know Zero Maya's the founder and then also I think Nicholas I guess his brother so you're kind of like the first is sort of outside? CEO So why did that change happen so the Puck Yenisei. Let me ask Nicole. I'll stay founded the company near. Ns was CEO on deal two thousand sixteen seventeen around that time and since then the CEO has been Nikolos now actually already last year Nichols has been talking that he's more interested kind of division bitcoin market describing Bitcoin scoring of course the company it has really grown huge one. It's not anymore kind of a commode that kind of position luck of human resource management and whatever and the piece more interested to deal with the pit Goin- join understand that fund it was actually saves thought of Iranians what he is saying so they are interested kind of the big and noth- really maintain the human resources stuff like that that is one thing and of course it's also the menu has better fresh is of course you get the different view of the component so new person. It's easy to know this if alcon position that needs to if they are kind of lacking inside thing if some people are stressed out because they have too much to do if there are some people hold on the enough to do so of course it's easier for somebody new to come a help us from Sebastian Hugh recently started as CEO. What were you doing before and how did you get into bitcoin and come to local bitcoins <music> coins? He actually be has the technology back on the years. I've already interested in Bitcoin already two thousand himself or something I was mining bitcoin myself but then I got more interested of technical career at the business side Ed I meant for the business management than I found it. A couple of companies and I've been in the past today for years in the management of of different companies also poured members indifference in his components but I have been following the bitcoin and especially the local bitcoin's closely asleep because because it's the biggest company in Finland that this and of course <hes> early on I've not interested than it was in create areas facilities companies but now is coming. Finally the companies are turning from the gray area to white area so of course it's. It's also easier for for me too many steps to come this kind of companies. Who are the daily office? You'll companies I but step to say I. I really think that the Bitcoin is of course it sounds really interesting. It's really it seems to be helping the people around the world. A local bitcoin itself is certainly interesting compensates. It said holiday you say me scenario such left the of the area so it's really training guide of because those people who don't have access yet and make what about you how did you you come to work at local bitcoins yes so I think I thought beat goes I. I'm around here to fail around in the beginning of a loss these on and off thing for me I would spend some time studying it and then forgetting it for awhile on so and under I did some mining writing I traded Toledo made trading off and that didn't work got some outgoing and so on lost beat goes scammers and hackers. I had just by my old we stakes so basic stuff stuff. The normal mistakes the browsers learning bitcoin at figuring out they actually actually east by <unk> by experimenting which is what I think it was the beginning of two thousand fifteen fifty that I I like finally decided to get into beat going on Bursar carry Carrere INA in it'd be going on. I thought it by get things from ADM son trying to fight locations to them. It didn't go anywhere but I made some Franson quite soon after after that I ended up working for local beat own. ATM Project I well DOT project. The company decided like back to goes straight to the main product and the project <hes> was was like sat down but I I I stayed raw started working on helping on the side and <hes> goading mostly maintaining our beat going infrastructure interest stories while I've been doing ever since actually just to go back to earlier when we were kind of discussing the philosophical circle stands for the political stance and you talked about how they really wanted to do the peer to peer trades so why was it that they didn't think Oh you know why don't we just pull this liquidity and create kind of a more typical exchange like what what's the reason for that yeah so the mission actually us us pretty old one that ring bitcoin to every city of the world and of course they really feel white in Bitcoin of course this is my my my few wiped out of Bitcoin type of different story so they could be the sole hitting me saying they wanted but of course they've mission was early on the Patriot go to efforts of the world and of course if there is an ex chains like they'll let the fix it really makes sense gos- that Bryce ice kind of sale and bypass close to each other of cost transaction costs are low but then the problem is that there is usually only one on way to buy you buy from the accents and so on and if you go in different areas different markets the problem is with finance. He's loose and so for example that if you have been to L. and by actually I have to admit that for example for my parents even in Finland it might be hard for them to kind of buy something wrong that stock experiences but then experiencing with that people to be able in slept. What is it but especially in areas like miniature it saves that it's easier for people to trade each other than the goal with the stock market and it's properly due to the hulk that not bitcoin currency the other currency is involved all right so in a moment we're going to discuss some other kind of news issues with local bitcoin such as stopping services in Iran and some some of the changes to its platform but first a quick word from the sponsors who make this show possible will the world follow France and advocate banning privacy coins will government-backed government-backed stable coins become the new Fiat are distributed and peer to peer exchanges just a flash in the PAN? The answer is maybe virtual tool currencies can flourish and create a new private and more versatile economy but that grand vision can't happen without keeping crypto clean and around that requires support of government and accountability for bad actors privacy enhanced compliance using cryptographic controls has the potential to preserve anonymity Hannah nitty without compromising legitimate investigations cypher trees is working on this vision of the future sign up to stay up to date on the privacy Haifa's enhanced compliance initiative and receive authoritative Crypto aml reports quarterly.

I don't know if it's placed really ask people of course if on to develop the service full but of course we have to bit understand it's not better why and how service is being used by behalf not really studied that too well of course medicine that <unk> Buckland with the founders of the company and what they have this racist I missed it was really early on they found David really kind of really early early adopters with Bitcoin and with the company so of course the death timetable exchange <unk> and they find <unk> with this bet fading and of course because they are and they are a lot of competition bitcoin is it doesn't really make sense to try the local pit corn. You have an back in May I had vera executive your local bitcoins community manager and Alina Toya Million Chief Customer Success Officer on my other podcast unconfirmed and at that time. They told me they were seeing about forty to fifty thousand trades. It's a day and about maybe a half million active users every month. What are the usage numbers now? They helped reinstate state redeem wants. What's the same I mean like I earlier said that that seems like we grow grow into the beach going so I think the beat Bryce bryce hassled so stay pretty much the same same so that's why the growth of the of the user is not that much from from the main yeah also it's a short period of time and what's the breakdown between developed and developing countries when be checking that the gardens people are using for the guide of one day Australia the money we have no this the it might be a bit more US says in developing countries than in the hell interesting and when you say you're are you talking about number of transactions as opposed to the amount of the transactions or just number of users actually them so not thoroughly kind of exchanged? Oh Wow okay well. That's actually pretty remarkable because then you would expect in developing countries. The amount of Bitcoin is higher per capita simply because they're probably wealthier countries but if in the developing countries is they're kind of exceeding the amount you know not not just from a number of transactions perspective but from the BTC amount then that means that there is pretty significant trading on your platform and developing countries and I would guess that the one reason these do this exchange assist goes off course it's possible and it's easy for the year stem in the developed Congress but of course if you in developing <unk> bit bit more heart to use exchange that might be right right also I. I would like to make a blind. Maybe Greece similar also that is related today's why we have a user so much in the developing countries <hes> <hes> I e much in the in developing countries you don't necessarily have for example bank account so so to speak but to have maybe some some mobile payments mythos like an hour or something like that that you use use on your or fallen phone and there isn't really exchange ceased providing like on and off Ramps Franck got mobile payment torch <hes> so if you want to get out of that mall <hes> if you want to get the beach boys you have to have the bank account that you don't how how so you need to use us because we true us you find someone who is using the same mobile payment Madonna thoughts us you have a dyke like die wrecked role ruled to dress for your your value for moat by Bamut mental directly to go out wherever you want to go from there so yeah yeah. It's I guess what <hes> is probably very appealing about. Local bitcoins means is that it's pretty I don't WanNa say customizable to your local geography but when I mean is is very flexible so you know if you're in one country and you have this particular way where you keep your money than the you know instead of being being limited to whatever few pay options and exchange offers you can just keep browsing you know this kind of craigslist site to find somebody else who will will accept your payment option one other thing. I definitely want to urge the listeners to do is in the show notes. I'll put a link to the charts of local bitcoins trading broken out by country because it looks at this I just it was so fascinating. There are certain trends that you see and then there's just like certain outliers where you know whatever was going on with trading in that country was just particular to what was going on the not country and what I mean by that is that the charts basically show trading volume by country overtime and so there are there are a few you trends I noticed where these tend to be stable economies and essentially the trading was all L. Fairly low volume for quite a long time and then a spike in trading at the end of two thousand seventeen early twenty eighteen and then a drop back down to fairly early low levels kind of an and the for people who want to look this up like Switzerland Norway New Zealand they all kind of exhibited that sort of chart and then there was another type of powdered. I noticed amongst somewhat kind of probably I guess what you would call troubles economies where the volume just sort of somewhat steadily goes up like for instance Argentina Mexico Venezuela but then aside from those trends there are just a whole bunch of charts that really don't look like any of the others and that it was just really fascinating to see that so there's no question to this unless you guys have of a comment on on that but I was so fascinated when I was looking at these charts and actually the one other comment I wanted to make was that the US has is a very very fascinating chart because it just shows so much more trading than any of the other charts which you know I guess kind of reflects. What's that the? US has the biggest market at least for a peer to peer trading of Bitcoin but anyway do you guys have any comments about about these is charts well yeah I. I also encourage people to go and look those jars may be like why awesome we go and see what's happening there because you can actually get this feeling that you you saw this little spike in some of the sards then you uh-huh <unk> wandering while this going on in in this country and you Google and then you find out it's like a little bit breading Brigden US newsprint those charts remember any particular news events you know that you noticed of via looking at the chart notice that the of course I was already interested in local coins and we already we had these interviews on coin and so on but there was this and of course a lot lots of news ongoing <unk> Ella and in the same time I could see from the going dance that hey they is more and more transaction ongoing in Venezuela so at least for me this really astonishing moment kind of the people in the area but I have a question about the Venezuela one which I saw <hes> The New York Times reporter who covers crypto tweeted tweeted about this because since the chart is denominated in Venezuelan Boulevard race then obviously the value of that is decreasing so it is it does the chart reflect actual increase in trading volume or is it simply reflecting that it takes more boulevard is to you buy a bitcoin than it used to do. You know what I'm saying. Yes a if you if you're still talking about going down. Ask Service <hes> you can actually sweet the the nomination to DC from the right upper corner of the off off the chart so then it's of course gets little difficult then you need to remember what was the bryce price off the beat. Go back go back then and so on <hes> but we do we do going to pass this using our public. FBI Bi to create these charts so if there are are some ways to improve them. You are welcome to try. Try outs. I get the day deployed for your cell phone and tried to figure out how to present did more nicely eighty one thing about this of course it's also really interesting what we have been following as the how the bitcoin itself behests. It's not <unk> on the world markets and it's really interesting of course there's also news news from the big economic mckesson a spell that it's interesting Bitcoin has thought the act a bit like the gold all of this kind of mental that keeps the price ice and it's really interesting because we have on the history two thousand seventeen even before learned that the beat going really Bala Thailand whatever and now it starts the work beat more like a gold with Propublica the most volatile as you can get when you're talking about cold yeah well these PROPUBLICA race on by for example so if you kind of you want to retain the value of whatever for example a Lotta your thing and it might be. I don't really because that is the problem. Let's be don't really do <unk> why are using but it's just my hunch that it might be a raise and that it's because this hyper inflation so so you need some way to kind of retain the value of your salad. I'm so on and Bitcoin might need to do that. Yeah I remember I think it was vera in the last podcast. Did she was saying that some of the activity you're seeing from Venezuela is is Venezuelans trading boulevard raise <hes> into USD via bitcoin and then when they need it when when they need the money using bitcoin to treat it back to boulevards and actually what I did just now I just looked up the BTC volume of trading in Venezuela and it did spike quite high earlier this year in like of M- March roughly it looks looks like or maybe February but it's backed down now frankly actually so that's kind of interesting. I wonder what's going on there. Oh I know it's because of the coin price has gone up. Okay okay so actually let's move on to some other kind of changes that have been going on one in your business. Local bitcoins obviously stopped offering services in Iran as well which I I mean. I don't know you know it's I I mind and I think a lot of people who watch the cryptos fees it sort of feels like there's been a lot of changes at local bitcoins recently with stopping cash services now of stopping services in Iran in bringing this new CEO so <hes> what what happened with Iran service and how does that kind of fit into do whatever new trajectory local bitcoins on yeah about the the CO students really reflected this but lots lots of this change is the tests had been is days of push from deregulation of course finally finally the elements elements are seeing a bit going and of course they are acting up wishing Eric relation and so on and for example Iran the I using lots of US services for different purposes and now because Iran someplace they've accompanies. US companies who are buying services investigating that's become a continued doing business if they do business in Iran and even though of course we didn't use these services in Iran but only conveyed giving a service it'll in fall time to pay afraid and of course now we had to choose between two evils. If the continue supporting for example Iran all that is a possibility that we have to shut down shut down the whole service and and of course if our mission is at bring bitcoin deficit the of the world putting down. It's nothing really serving that mission but if the whole service down that is even worst skim area so we had the choice bates been to Abel's levels and of course that is happening and also the will be our united that we will go under the regulation yeah and it's a new finish regulation that comes into effect November right and I know on the platform you're now implementing some changes ages to meet that regulation. How does that affect the users so most notably this know-your-customer? That's that's why they are there will be tears. We have already announced therapy and of course depending that Antea you have. We have to know more about the customer of course one could go only because of deregulation but then again if you re Deb the ruling on the reasoning behind this recreation is that better the <unk> note that customer better they are able go to secure the funds so it kind of God of make sense also customer vice but of course it's really annoyance for the customers in the history of Crypto obviously is littered with exchange tax. Local bitcoins is a little bit different but local bitcoins did suffer a hack doc on its forums that enabled the hackers to post some fishing links but when you because you manage inch these wallets for people is also a form of honeypot is not something where a hacker could obtain a number of bitcoins at once yes so so if you are I don't know I'm not going to go into those about the forum forum thing <unk> just say that <hes> I think <hes> running a beat going MRIs little bit different than running any on the on the <hes> uh vet service as various <hes> money wall logged on and thus we we seem to be undergone stunt <unk> so is been it. It's been well. I'll say interesting resting in in a in a way also very stressful as being a target so to say and yes we we are. We are <hes> <hes> Gustavo Diaz Service we held some of the beat goes off our customers unfortunate- unfortunately that's how we need to do a job right this way on but we are. Let's say taking a really big <unk> to to make sure that our customers are safe so I guess what I'm asking is. It sounds on slake. Obviously there's a way were individual. People can be compromised but then it sounds like from what you're saying. There is also a way where local bitcoins coins can be compromised in that then exposes all of the users funds. Is that correct yes you are correct but the the easiest way to get attack a local bitcoin <unk> by by making mistake on your the your Seattle like us so you will sir on most of the hacker seems to like target the users themselves more more than the Shell Service and to that we of course at you get shorts on and <hes> I think we have many many many <hes> <hes> Susan Mayne blaze to guts got stoves guide off <hes> operators on trying to brother our customers like any other exchange we are we are also holding customer funds well yeah and so you're doing that not only during the period of escrow but then also if people keep their bitcoins in their local bitcoins wallet. Is that what you're saying Yes oh okay so I think I didn't fully understand how it was set up all right so one other question wanted asthma was for the bitcoin cash fork at that time local bitcoins me this decision to convert that money into bitcoins for four the users and then they simply added added that money to the users balance and subtracted a fee for doing that but then it also said it wouldn't it would not in the future support. Any airdrops folks so obviously since then time there's definitely been other forks and <hes> airdrops. I don't even know if I could count but if local bitcoins isn't giving that money to its users. Are you guys it just leaving it sitting there unused or you accessing it or what are you doing with that money. WE ARE USING IN UTAH. I mean a point about this folks of course I sort of being a CEO what folks there have been actually synced bitcoin cash. Oh Oh sorry you know what I was thinking thinking of was the <hes> the further bitcoin cash for so you're right if it was converted than that's no longer thinking of because they plus Casas. If I understood correctly it was a bitcoin for the you're right you're right right but so what so what happens to you know for instance like bitcoin gold or something which happened afterward. I think we have made creek clear that we don't we don't these was one thing that we decided to like credit useful for for the money from the four and we don't plan on doing it into future and we haven't done it also not that it's yeah yeah I think I there's no more to say about it okay but you're also not accessing the funds so they're just sort of sitting there. You know we are not accessing the you've made season to check if you don't believe me but yeah okay yeah and people can't <hes> with raw them themselves themselves. I guess I so we'll go bitcoins just always st with Bitcoin or would you ever consider adding any of the other crypto assets so now recall correctly we are supporting some what de payment mental reactionary supporting of course not vitesse crop as a payment payment would fiasco pulled in something but this time he's at the moment that the Bitcoin is leading the cryptocurrency back and that's why we are also using it because of course supporting Autho cryptocurrency is caused fos. A nomination is being this new markets doc. It's which is stay up Republican speculating on Crypto smut stay using it for other purposes saw the current stance is that we you stay with Bitcoin and Sebastian as the new. CEO What plans do you have for local bitcoins yeah so of course because mission is to provide bitcoins trading for efforts at the of the world every people on the planet and like we have actually stated state is I speed accidentally interested in 'cause we have been discussing that that really need to understand the needs of the people who are using bitcoins Ernst and it's really there is different markets and of course this is kind of studying with other needs for different customer different breath markets different people for bitcoins and then with ride the surf does so that the more people on the world can access and trade bitcon right and I also wanted to ask about how you guys are based in Helsinki. What is the Bitcoin or overall crypto seen what it would is that like in Finland one thing that <hes> seen as a general seems to forget the is that the second and develop <unk> beat going after Sandro seed or wheat CETACEA was musk guy using the handle a serious which is also so no <unk> me who is from from London harassing get monkey? Mommy doesn't seem to be active in seeing anymore more BOT as far as I know he no. He still owns the beachgoing dot org bitcoin dot dot org domains as far as I know oh I know there were from two thousand twelve two thousand thirteen. There are active <unk> going ops in in Helsinki and there are still active once in month. I think <hes> we be going up here so there are people they're so so we are a small Andre on but we've we've been going for a long time. I think if you happiness operating interested in Bitcoin you all S. five someone to say your into us here in great well. Thank you both so much for coming on unchained true.

Or you could say, hey, said it said sleep timer for ninety minutes hundred twenty minutes. Whatever works for you. Thanks. Let's get on with. Show you up all night. Joss interning bind racing. Trouble getting to sleep. Trouble staying asleep. Welcome. This is sleep with me podcast the shoe, just sleep. We do the bedtime story. Malls, you need to do get Embiid or not the light some breast play. I'm gonna do the rest going to tempted to create a safe place or you could sit aside. Whatever's keeping awake. Whether it's thoughts feelings. Physical sensations changes in time or temperature. Like, you know, anything going on? It's keeping you wake. It could be anything. Like, you could be remembering. So it was drumming in her finger string meeting today that lake I'm not here. It happens to me. See why you know, this could be thoughts about when they say anything frigging drumming the fingers. Little berry was doing first of all I said imaginary meeting, which is mount said issue said has had a cat, you know, conference meeting. With so many bear say, what are we here? What are we here? What I can't focus on. You know, I didn't have the wherewithal to say excuse me berry. I'm here to have an imaginary meeting with EDNA who who's in this meeting. Oh, thank you appoint of order. Go ahead in the middle of bad. Gas intro secondary point of order. We're not using Robert's rules of order. Correct. I don't I'm not a fan to too many rules. You know? A point of order number three over at the beginning of podcast central. Boy. Sorry about that new listeners went right off topic really early. Hopefully, I'll get back to that meeting. Whatever skeeving your wake, I'm here to keep you company and take your mind off. So what I'm gonna do? Who would? I'm going to do is send my voice across the deep Durkan item. Use the walling soothing curricula Sichone's pointless meanders superfluous tangents, which you just saw a few of them enemy here bits. It's a nice cozy safe place. Now this I'll give you the news up for on. If you're new I'm glad you're here in here's a couple of things to know despite gas is very silly and goofy in counter intuitive. So see if you you could kick back just like you're at the meeting, but you're not invested whatever meeting that was. I mean, maybe there is a part of me is this. What do the do is -ality Dono where I could be listening and enjoying berries or IMP amoebic empathize with Barry and say, maybe if you're meeting check in with berry and see what's up with the finger drumming. But for now, I got a focus on this meeting because enter even know who called it also. Yeah, there is the underlying tinge of disa- meetings going on within my but oh Walsum in the middle of. Okay, suspect goes off topic. A lot. But is here to help. Now doesn't work for everybody. But give it a few tries. Another thing that doesn't always work for everybody kinda see how it goes to podcasts as long intro, which is in a weird way in essential part of the show unless you skip it like if you skip it, it means central for you, you could skip ahead to eighteen minutes. But I really don't watch miss out on this. Because this is like the part where people start to wind down also in. This is like this is the only thing remember, no it's going to happen. But you know, you could sleep the road. I don't think there's phrased as ever been uttered before in the history of you know, I for humanity tonight and sleep with me during the intro anything could happen. But nothing you'll need to be awake for or you'll be like holy cow wooded. I miss because you say well, Honey wooded, I miss fell asleep during the intro that was the wind down, you know, brushed my teeth to get into bed. You know? I prepped puffed my Pillow's a Serta just feeling Barack cross breeze. We have going and scoops talk, and I was planning on just you know, easing into bed and then maybe flown asleep. You know, some point. The next thing. They know. No. He was it was asleep would happen. Well, Honey, actually, I don't know. I was asleep too. I'm pretty sure he invented a new musical instrument called the finger drum. Could it be may not have been a finger? I think you sucking about or maybe shocking about meeting of finger drummers or something. That's interesting. I remember I remember a conference table. And then I pictured it's so comfortable when I was sleeping on it. And so that's okay. Anyway, excuse me couple sorry. Know if you checked out our sponsor solo yet. But excuse me, just to talk to another new listener to mean. Interrupt your breakfast? Ooh. Hey, scoots next Nisa sleepless night ain't no problem. I'm just it was just trying to give an example, if never actually interviewed a couple I only lake replayed your conversations for listeners, but I've never had a chance to interview to love like I've never seen two people looks so radiant before at this time in the morning will scoots because you put us to sleep. So good great. You might explaining canister. Would intro is for the new listener. Well, it's intro. You know, hey, new listener. It's me, I'm regular regular lunchbox tote and sleep with me listener here in wanted to know the intro is it seems that I like a drawn out purposeless thing. Evidence actually strangely enough. I don't think it's a technique that scooter uses no fence scooter, none taken watch box toting member of the sleep of me community. Thanks scooter. But like, it's a it's where he explains what the podcast is. He never gets there. But it's kind of fun at adds some levity to bed time. I think that's the main goal let you know. There's a community. It's important. You're listening that that there's a community other listeners there Hon. What else the scooter doodling the intro? Well, thanks Sweden's 'em actually Brown bag toting members suited me community. No lunch. Backs for me. But you know, I make my own lunch. And he explains this structure the show where it starts off a few minutes of business is then there's a the intro which we're talking about right now. So it's pretty mad. A an intro is around twelve to fourteen to seventeen to sixteen fifteen minutes or so. Show is a show then between the intro, and the story is some business to that's what keeps the podcast free for everybody. Then after that, there's a story. I think today it'll be like they're called Tuesday styles stories, even though the podcast doesn't come out on Tuesdays. Could be about anything. But we know it will be nice in soothing and stuff. Then there's some thank yous at the NSA structure the show in sugar cakes went you tell them a couple of the rules of the podcast. Oh, thanks. Thanks. Bye. No scooter, I was talking to sugar cakes not to use scooter. Oh, okay. Oh, thanks, Honey. Honey, boo. Disarmed scooter, we have pet names for each other. Because we're in a relationship. You're just are bore friend are bore bay. That's perfect. Thanks, honey. Honey, buns scooter say no, no was just as like, I wasn't making fun of your pet names. It's just I it's an instinctual thing for me. I I call my dog sugar Popeye sometimes in it, doesn't you? Oh scooter, I might use that one. Okay. Anyway. So then what are we talking about? Oh, the rules of no need to listen to the podcast. I think we've made that pretty abundantly clear which is expensive expect scooter to go off top aching, and that's part of the fun part. But it's also part of that's our defile. Oh, so ideally, it's just interesting enough to take your mind off his stuff. But you you say, well, I don't really need to listen to scooter. Is much as we love you scooter, you know, that part he and the other thing is there's no pressure fall asleep. That's what I really like a lot of things you say, you know, the their sleep solutions are sleep cures scooter Shishir sleep, but he's here to be there for you. While you fall asleep rubber Ducky, PU would you? Oh, thanks. Thanks. Thanks wash. Callosum my dreams. He he also let you know. You know that you deserve a good night's sleep.

He could check all that out at superman podcast damn so store. Thanks. Okay. Everybody tonight, say his style up. So we've only done a few times. But it's when I really enjoy making and really fun. It's a board game on boxing, the board board game on back seeing internet. We're going to be doing a game called Tokaido GIO K A, I DO, and it's a it's a board game. I don't know too much about it. I have a little bit of personal history with it. I always under the impression and actually didn't even okay. This is this is Kim has been sleep with material here. I thought I had bought it last year. So for the holidays of twenty seventeen who so last last year for someone as a gift, but I may have only Plaisted. You don't here's what here's what may have been even to two or three holidays ago. Eight intended to buy for my brother because they had heard about the amazing artwork of this game. And that's very unique and very enjoyable to play. But like a think ended up putting it in my shopping cart. And then realizing that there was out of print book. I wanted to buy for my brother, Ken, because I'm pretty sure he would have been one, you know, he does are for the show. So he was the one I would have wanted to do the to to give it to end then this year. Sorry Kenner, Judy if you're listening. I purchase a game is a holiday gift with intention of giving it. Like a good thing about board games, especially for adults. But maybe for kids to I mean, this in the situation ends up for kids is that you have option of who to give the gift to is. You can't board by board game with one person in mind, but but it gives you options, especially so this year I bought. We'll see colossus also involved in this when I conference with Santa Claus say said, okay, we'll board games. Are you going to have the elves creates in which one should I purchase? So this was after my console was Santa Claus, aka Roberta closet. Just wanted to. Bacon myself in multiple corners. But is so. We wish to two of us in the team of elves consulting between those we had Tokaido. There's a Harry Potter card building game which didn't do on boxing that just because it a part of the game is unbalancing. In so fi unblocks to the game. It would. Interrupted my my enjoyment as a game play. So Serb out that you could check out the game as well. And then also a game is an rewrite to name for it called see it's called pain. It's a pan game about dims. I in this was just a card game version. I think there's like there's version of those games called legacy, which I'd like to play that game Kenan Judy cat because they said it might feel like for so FIA the pan game or Tokaido. And so it was, you know, this is when you hold a gift this is called I called this reverse condo. Where I say, what will this bring who will whom will this bring joy to maybe capatin that. Or maybe we could work on work with Marie? We could do a set of car. That's where I get like eighty percent of the money. Marie gets twenty percent in their holiday cards with e sue which just this massive Ricky just right instead of a book, we could sell pamphlets. I don't know if that's something. That's profitable. But it's something I'd be into is you hold you. Hold a gift you've bought? It gives us his candidate net. The best form it you say who would district actually, no that's bottle outta gifts. This is going to be a bad which so like another this is just a reproach idea. You get like plenty of months to plan this, but you can also do it for birthdays or any other gift to you know, showers you're going to is going to goodwill or or a ninety nine cents tour in you pick stuff up, and you hold and you say, we'll disproving joy. I mean, a good goodwill or a flea markets. Good cacique who would disprove joy to. In then you gift it to them. Sure. Like, you're, you know, I don't know in ninety nine cents stores again the same thing, we should just clear. I would this ring joy to someone. In then who would bring joy to. So after my console tes this is so that's how took item ended up in my lap. Instead of Ken judy's. Also, I'm still not sure it didn't give them the gift at some points. So I didn't want to alike on the hot like berate up before the holidays be like did Roberta loss or I give you took IDO is a gift within the past few years. And I forget because that's what's ramped up down there. Just in case. So that's I ended up at took Idaho. In looking forward to playing it with my daughter, so just to paint a picture for you. It is a large but box or no how many definitely like maybe twenty four inches by twenty four inches in about six inches. Sick. Maybe four inches thick. It's a heavy box. It's the backs the background colors just white or might be an egg shell. It could be a linen. But then might be my lighting talking. Has the names of the creators and their Antoine bows in nod EA. And I think as correct pronunciation, and I'm not sure in the center of the top of the box underneath in writing. Yeah. It seems like was written in some sort of Japanese style brushwork at Tokaido. Inside the circle stink is from Japanese characters inside the the second row. ESPN? There's a beautiful piece of art which includes the whole art said on a lake or pond in. I don't know if this is art from the game. But I I don't I don't want to describe it just yet. But really really like a lot of details. Just a lot to look at in in beautiful. In each side of the box assist took idol on it. So if you have it on a, you know, a good book shel- for board game shelf, you can easily find it in then on the back so just to tease out here and get you ready for what we have in store and the Bank again, it says the names of the creators is in took IDO. Register you know, the trademark is registered in top left corner has what looks like some sort of cards so probably used in the game in then it has some sort of coins. That look like they're used in the game. They're circular coins with the square hole in them. To the right is a gentleman smoking pipe wearing a robe and on his back is these again might be characters from the game. But he he's got a lot of things on his Bank that he's carrying including a cool paper lantern any smoking pipe as in on the bottom left is another character. Also, she seems to be in. She's in a flowing robe. Also, the colors are just amazing. I would even know like her robe is shades of magenta in purples. There's a lad in in the hair then on the other side is someone he seems to be dressed like a samurai. But again, he also has a lot of colors. He's holding a fan with the painting. And it's. And then on the back. It says welcome traveler exclamation point. Welcome to Takeda legendary east see road, connecting Kyoto two Eto here you will begin extrordinary journey during which you will discover a thousand marvels for the first time be sure to take the time to contemplate the sumptuous vistas before you the majestic mountains.

The contents. We will discover but they're listed here. It's as a game takes about forty five minutes to two five players also has eight plus I think that means age. Then it says an no on baby says zero to three also on the UPC code just in case, you're wondering sister Kaido dash v. So I don't know if that's the fifth edition to the game says July seventeen in just just for legacy sake. Three seven seven zero zero one five five six five four three. And you could visit them on the web at said WWW dot fun for dot F R in they have the company's logo. They're fun. Forge. So Manatt paw. Like like, you notice what I'm going to be opening the box here. Okay. So I have the axe open in the first thing, I'm seeing is a pack with cards and things in very picturesque is in the how to play instructions. Yeah. It looks like there's also a version of the game or an app to complement to game. So there's an ad for that. That is also beautiful. In a put the instructions aside, then there's a big cardboard square. In the first one has coins it has in two three four times. One two three four five six seven eight nine ten which is easy, man. It's so forty coins to punch outs. Then one two three four five. Circular tokens of look like a kind of watercolor flour. And one is like again, a color that is. I'd see it's like is somewhere is violet light purple than one. That's like a yellow orange like the edges of sunsets. In one. That's like NAT forest. Green though, it has some forest green in their Edano Thursday killer verdant green, but which is different than spring green or loamy green. Maybe moss. Green. Then there's a gray scale one which is beautiful in. And there's another one that you initiate say. It's blue then I'd say, whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. It's like a Cayenne or Cihan in Balu in a little bit of gray mixed together to create something in a shade of blue. Is in there seems to be character cards which actually have a whole where you can punch out. So I don't know what dance for. And again, I don't like there's a there's a coin new symbol and the right to operate corner and says X times the number of coins. So I don't know if that's like the game of life. How much they earn? Then there's a drawing and painting as a character and each character's a little bit different. Maybe we could run through those. We get you then underneath a character. Oh, there's different symbols in different cards, which must be part of the game. Play is Jeff to figure out exactly what they're like do does. Maybe this is what they get to do each churn. Like one of the characters from the back cover. His name is is n dash Ayman u m o o n. In two there's a picture of something that looks like a house or is something in aero, and it has one to a card in the Nicola ING, then the next character is also was on the cover the back over is SAS. I ako the SAS a y AK KO. Or Sesa Jakko? And that one has the same pitcher a house than it has one card then it has another card with a coin. The coin is xed out in the has a great out card. So sorry like titillating in the mystery of the game play. Then there's another character. So's four character cards and this sheet hero Totta who earns eight coins or has eight coin thing now hero Todd has a different symbol underneath hero tattoo. It's not a house. It looks to be some sort of mountain type sanctuary or something in the Nazar air going to a pile of coins. Then it has an aero of coin going into a great outgoing tapped by a gate, so again, I'm like we would also under. There's also a circle it's meant to be punched out in the top left underneath that is banner with Japanese characters on its in Alaska on here is Omay Omay guy Oma guy, O M, E G E, and this character has long hair painted face to face a fan. And I can't quite see. If it's what else is being held in their hand. Really really layered outfit in shades of red and Maroons. In even the fan has exquisite details on there like there's a painting with look like flowers, and maybe a sitting sun or moon, and even the textures of the dress. It's a dress -lica-. That's what are those like folds almost like your accordion. I don't know what those cana- dresses are called. And he's dress can seem to be flowing. Also, I didn't even realize this in the background of each one is like a very light gray scale painting of kind of looks like they're on some sort of regal stage. Okay. So that's one set of character Kurds, then the next big cardboard punchout card has one two three four five six seven eight nine ten ten more coins. So with fifty coins in play it looks like and then it has six more characters. Always like much different symbols. Okay. So four of the six characters have look like a food symbol underneath them. And then aero to some sort of card base activity. In. Maybe the characters are all holding like something that symbolizes them all of them have different coin values there's mid who soo-keun ni MIT as you K U N. I this UC some sort of mystical character may because long beard long staff at the tap has like a natural branches coming off it with a loss pink blossoms on it. But then there's kind of three zero characters and they're in and also on the shoulder this character is another theory type in a like a sprite lake character in wearing a beautiful green robe. With yellow tie. What do you call it? When you tie your robos since your robe with that thing. And then different cards in a staff symbol. The neck Scherzer was from one of the covers Yoshii shoe. Why? Oh, S H I y ASU. Earns nine coins seems to be some sort of samurai type character in blue. So he said holding a fan that maybe some sort of Phoenix like character burden air within also has underneath the circle with someone in shades of pink carrying things which leads to two cards with a question. Mark. The next character seems to be younger character set sukey SAT issue KFI, and what I like about set sukey is the characters looking right at us. And don't know if any other characters are making contact and then in right, lower side of set sukey is a little character some sort of pets. I can't tell if it's a cat or a small dog in an again, just a massive amount of details. Also, you could even go into the details of the face and stuff really impressive, our work and even just layers waivers going into the colo- thing. This is a really rich game. And then under set sukey is what looks like a plate of food with chap six in aero to a card with a question Mark that has the card on the backward has a plate of chopsticks into then a coin with an accent. The next character is a Kinko K. I N K o now ky-ko has mysterious something over kinko's covering kinko's head. If you watch Leauge into is evocative of that TV show for me the second season. And very simple like a blue shaded robe avid, some wind flowing, actually. So the robe is actually flowing in the wind. And underneath Kinko is again, a plate of food with chopsticks going to card with the plate of food a chap sticks. And then one coin. Kinko also has x seven for the coins this next character is named bay. See h u u b. Or shoe by? Also has the symbol wish to food in chopsticks with a red is circa with a down air on and in the aero to the pink card that Yoshii shoe had. In a coin multipliers x four and then shoe by Shubais, securing has a piece of what does that go the wheat between the their mouth or some other form grain of very determined look with the eyebrows in his in mid stride poll over the shoulder carrying a bundle of something with some Japanese writing on it. Jank that is somewhere between orange in red. With a lot of details underneath to jank. It also has some sort of they also have some sort of something around their neck. They have short longer shorts or shorter pants. Is even some design and the Cavs. And the last character here is a hero. She she she g she J H I R O S H I G E. Extra coin multiple ir. The is same as Shubais food plate with a chap six in food and a circular era with down symbol. But a air pointing to it to Joan card. We haven't seen yet and then hero shoe Ghei hero. She gay is really ritually richly designed holding a giant paint. Brush tipped with read. It looks like the character. Just painted a circle around them really following close with a bunch of different scaling of colors. They're left their painting with her left hand, which is good news for people. They can be some sort of a bat like a carry on the back also holding what could be the paint in some sort of jar. Really amazing. N even look at the back of these the backs are point though. Okay. So the next thing to do is open up this bag and take a look at what's in this bag. Okay. So open the bag, and it has I guess these are cards that maybe become paintings while that's what it seems to be that their cards that you separate. And then become paintings. If that's the case, this is really, really amazing. Holy mackerel. What do they skull to like three pain? First set of paintings as three paneled painting. The second set in the how many versions soc three cards for each painting in spradley like one two three four five sets of the painting so five fifteen cards. Then the next painting is. Four cards or four panel painting is probably really making a bit of a Messier that I think there's five versions of that. And then the final one is a five. Five panel painting. Okay. So let me start with three panel painting here. On one side is so it's a three panels in each panel has its own number one two three. Against a looks like a stick with a pack like a bundle on it. So assume you're like accoridng during your journey. In the first feigning this repainting Severi Verdon. It's green it has some flooded fields in the center and the middle panel in the right panel or two people like harvesting or working with some grasses in the field. So I don't know if it's a what exactly they're harvesting. Visit a little details. Just amazing. The water is green. But it also reflecting the sky, you can kind of see some of the clouds that to laughed and one of the border like a lane borders between the fields is looks like chew bird houses and rock and some grasses in the top left corner is some trees, and then above that is like a land which looks like maybe a main road is in there. Someone standing there. There's even some mountains, and as you move, right? You see some birds flying and some more mountains. In Audi yellow sky, someone running on the road bullet pulling a cart in occurred even has motion can of drawn into it too. There's lantern like Kenna moving in as you track further on the right on the road part atop background of the card. There's some road markers in this to people just standing on the road again at chatting or catching up or give fellow travelers giving one another directions, so just really rich. And then on the other side of the card is a greenish print again of a textured looking print, and then a circle in the middle with another painting, which kinda catch his like a different version what we're like a further out zoomed out version of sim tiered flooded fields with a house or. Building at the top of the fields. And again, this motif like sky and coloureds and then another set of cheered fields in the distance with another house and the four paneled card painting, again, all the panels are numbered from left to right in this one is a winter scene with a like a volcanic style mountain which rally reminiscent of food g or those few that scene. Shasta northern California. So it's always impressive. A lot of these mountains are rising just right from sea-level. So these really look amazing in this one looks very amazing because it dominates the chew center panels and either side in it's covered in snow, and it's surrounded by a pink sky. So I don't know if it's dawn or dusk. Feels like a dawn in these wispy painted collapse. Almost I ribbon like, maybe even some birds in the sky and the furthest left, and right panels. We get a little bit more before ground detail of some trees that are snow covered bridge a gate in some rocks. And the right side of the panel are some travelers who like soaking in the mountain. Around the base amount, and seems to be some sort of Laker flooded area. But it's scar. Just snow covered snow covered racks. Also, very amazing. And then on the back side. It's a grey scale can of look with a print that has like somewhere between a snowflake in a flower. And then a shot of the mountain in different way, where the wind is really a wispy winner wind. He could see the mountains in the trees in the snow. And a five panel painting. It is amazing. It's a lake a water seashell from shore to see. In analyst side seems to be kind of some seaside village that's built on the base of a mountain. So the trees and buildings. In the mountain kinda rising behind it. There's collapse in Kenna placid water, then as you move to the next planned panel. You see the clouds and sky and birds and then the ribbon lakes wispy clouds a mountains in the background. You see a Fisher person working with the nets? As you move to the next Japan. All you see a boat in the Caesar getting a little bit more wavy, it's boat with a sail up, and it seems to be headed towards the village. And you just see some of the design in the water as you move to the fourth panel, you see waters getting even rougher and darker. There's some rocks. There's some darker cool out. Dhs. In his spiraling. Spiraling about the water is atoll kennison cylinder coal rack and built on top of his building. There's a tree. So kinda fantastical in some way. Like, you say I'd like to live up there. In you could see some some flags in front of the house. You can see the wind is blowing waves crashing at the base of the rock. Ended in the fifth panel. Just like a mighty see shatter, so blah, gray and black clouds and very very big waves with these finger like breaks in the foam of the wave. So very very very beautiful. I mean, just so much to look at and the other side is kind of a print that looks a little bit lake something if I could have of the motion of water would also with the prince of leaves in the water too. And in the center painting, his more placid view like chew boats in the water to a mountain rising up on one side and island on the other and the watt of Big Sky with a nice calm. Cool clouds as so it's a painting card portion. Okay. And the next layer of the backs we have the board the board game. Boy, you know, the game board, Ian, while some extra bags. So I guess like your bags to keep those Kurds in. Then a bag with five with wooden character symbols one in turquoise one. In a darker yellow one in a forest canned green one in grey one and a purple in. Then also five pips that match the characters in color like around circle in. He seemed to be made of wood or hurt prompt plastic really tact. Definitely would as I'm looking at in the light. So really nice touch too there. And then there's also a box of cards a pack of cards, which I'll open up off, Mike and take a look through least. Okay. So the bag cartoon it's a really six stack of cards. Like if you're thinking about a regular playing deck of playing cards. It seems to be quivalent of two decks playing cards. They are like quarter like maybe half the size or sixty percent less size than normal deca point cards ended and the back of the cards are different like as we go back to those characters. There's there's different things on each side of the cards. So some of the bag of cards have a black print on them. And then in the circle painting in the center is a building it that's lit up at night with a black tiled roof. Another card has a a yellow kind of a shining sun print in a lucky cat in black waving another back of a card has blueprint. With kind of lake river racks in river stream in it very pitcher ask then we have that food that bowl it's actually bowl because it has a liquid in it with looks like a lot of different vegetables. Maybe ran ish some other things in that apprentice that is kind of a vacuum of fish without being fish. Then there's a purple card with person like a purple maybe dark pink print on it, and the per person in kind of matching tones carrying a big pack and they're back. I think that's all the backs of the cards. So let's see the fronts of the cards. Let's see the first guard as coma. KOMO? A it has a really has on the bottom left to has one coin in the bottom right at has a circle with a fan in it. It looks like some sort of top or something like a spinning top you would play with then it has a pack with the numbers. I think they all do one three five seven maybe they own. I guess maybe they all have that not all of them do though. So that's that's that card in the next guard is. A musical instrument three coins. Then in the circle at has looks like it could be dollar. I'm not sure what the symbol is. In this is shy. Omni sin Shami Sen.. The next one seems to be a robe a yellow striped robe. Many things you would buy is to coin symbol in circle at has a robe. And it's you you cut y you k- ata you cut. This next guard must be from the different different backgrounds. Anne, Ana e by Beato on UB to- A N N A B I T O. In. It's a character with a staff, maybe like a grimace and their faces are exerting efforts. In then below them is an axe with a blue back to card, and this is a pink Bank card. This next guard is go Koji. Yeah. Coup. G K U G E R K O G E against another character. The arms are classed clasped underneath the robe in. It has a X with three coins. This next one must be food. It's a new Geary emission Mishi. And I g I r I m e SHA new Geary MSCI Negi Romy, she it's a one coin has a six symbolism pack on it and this two triangular. Pieces of maybe tofu or something like made from some sort of flour. With looks like sim sort of Nori rap or maybe on the bottom of in. The next one Tempera it is it has leafy greens in it looks like maybe it's impor- of fish or just as like looks like a small fish lake hearings. Or sardines to coin symbol in six. Number six with a pack on it. The next one is fubu in this one has a like a wooden. Serving board with some slices of fish couple limes. It looks like. Maybe some sort of green vegetables in some slices of onion or garlic or or some something else and has three coins in six thing symbol. This one's interesting. It see that river type seen it says spring in has a two pack symbol, it's the same as the spring and the other other side of it in in the next guard has the exam is the exact same pitcher just says to monkeys in the spring, and that one has three pack symbol on it. They seem like they're chilling there. The next one is Hashi H A S H I. It's says so it seems to be two chopsticks. It is a single coin symbol in. Then on the other side has circa with a fan symbol in its. Gaeta G T A is two sets of wooden roosting skill that you wear around than your feet as wouldn't shoes with the extensions on the bottom slippers. I guess you'd call them. Or? In that has a to circle coin symbol, and then the circle the black circle with to a robe in. So he says stands for Colo -thing. How how Ori is the next one? It's another robe in a can of blue similar to samurai was wearing. And the has to coins in the cooling symbol. In. It's a repeat of an any ABI toe the character, that's a grimacing. Maybe they all start to. Yeah. Oh, no. There's other ones. Let me skip the ones we've seen there's another one for so by which has so, but what seems to be sober noodles. And again, this is very detailed painting one for sashimi. Looks like a salmon is a more srang. So let's see we got any other characters in the springs. There's another one with two boats against the water that costs three pack. Chee-wah who C H? A you see h I w way let's fan in. It's a one coin symbol. The fan has it's a kind of man the color again, he sees Etta pink. No, it's not it's like a pink meets some magenta. And it has who look sick maybe a bird or a rabid painted on its. Next one Suzy a ramp to package, we don't know what it is before Roche Iki if you are oh S H I KFI in. It's a stripe to package or bundle tied up at the top. And in these different hues of blues. In. That's two coins has a clothing symbol. This next one is some sort of dump three dumplings in bowl Manu MA in you you. Or Manju M A N J, Hugh, and that one is a one coin. And then it has a new symbol, which is a circle which like likly four roles in it. Then we have on a beach. Oh, another character card Meco in she's gonna standing and she has a similar coins underneath her and a coin going into a gray scale gate. The next one is Dongo DA geo, and it has three circular. As soon as if on a skewer in three sets of those it looks like it might be a sweet to me, but I'm just assuming in as a single coin in then a six pack symbol. Don't don't Buri which is a bowl wish to some eggs in some meats and looks like maybe some soy's that's three coin in six packs symbol. Washy which it looks like is some immaterial like a bowl to clothing or folded up a piece of linen. That's a one coin symbol. Yuki you you key oily. Oh, okay. Joey, okay. Are you K I YO e? This is recordings. It seems to be some sort of painting reprint very beautiful beautiful. The next one. Is coin beta who con beta K O N P E Chee. Oh in it. Looks to be some sort of the sweets and purple pink, yellow green and blue. On a police. Kennedy. Just I don't know if would you call them it look a little bit like the shape of ever lasting gap staffers in the original movie. That's a one coin symbol in a four roll symbol. Just see if we need to do Chofu in here. There's time you she MSCI which is a and rice dish it looks like. Those those verdant flooded flooded fields talking about on the other card. There's a card with that. There's a card con Zafy K N Z A S H, which seems to be a few things for the lake your hair Saka. With an ice pitcher that it's two coins. Osha OCHA. Which is a bowl of Grena sued greener shoe liquid me so shui which is a bowl of like Emeco. Type look 'em ISO S H I R, you me, so Sheru. Dongo tofu noggin. More. Oh, here's another spring Shad. It's a little bit different. It has to monkeys in the spring. But there's also blossoms were the other spring was in more of a winter shot. Di fukuaku. Which is a like it looks like some sort of pink wish food or a dessert. Wizard darker dark burgundy center to it that when this to coin ze net sukey, it's any T S U K E this one I is really it's a chew coins. It has a rope being poured out of looks like some sort of brass sculpture. And I don't know I should know more about at comma Boko, which is a rule of pink role with a light pink inside which is sliced. So wow. I mean, these are just Jaka Torey sushi. So some of these let's see there's one card to has like every single dish on it. As must be lucky. If you get that one. Here's one that. You just a blue bowl or vessel. You Yoon OMI, U N M. I. There's another one that looks like a piece of art Sumi S U M I E assume may there's another character card show going in your show Khanin Kuhnen S H O K U N high n Samarai there's one that costs three packs. There's also occurred has of like the story you might buy go FU, which seems to be envelope on the end of a red shrink, the envelopes gold, another vessel beautifully beautifully painted, a ridge in dark reds with a fish on top and waves sim some sort of a, sir. Just a decorative vassal shy KYW she guy. She key S H I K K. I. Again, we keep running through this issue. I mean, I'm still only halfway through the scars one car to has all the characters sandal Goss. That's a hand. There's a collection of boxes. Wow. Yeah. We really you could go we could go through all these all day long against as a level of detail. This is just one more set of the game. But I'd be remiss if in go through the game board at least for a little while. We'll go through the instructions it'll be interesting. I mean, it's definitely seems like a game to add to your. Collection. Because it just got great reviews, and it seems to be game about being in the moment in the game board really doesn't reveal too much about the game. I know you're going ban. You can go in either direction. I believe. From Eto to coach, oh, or coyotes Eddo? But the I is history piece three section game. But word in the most Aleph section. Wow. That has. His numbers at the top. It's I it has is there's two Rosen numbers. I are all odd numbers in the second row is all the even numbers. So on the bottom row Cosio two four six eight ten twelve fourteen sixteen eighteen twenty twenty two twenty four twenty six twenty thirty thirty two all the way up on the last word to one hundred. In type goes the ad numbers. One three five, but some numbers have every if you count by five. Is is although their numbers are in kind of a Brown sugar gray scale, maybe a not quite a CPA of more of a gray scale sepia. All the every fish number is said done in maroon so zero five fifteen twenty all have maroon color. And then and the first thing is like mountain tap building with a gate leading up to it in the sun is blazing behind it. Either setting or rising against seems like it's arising. In two. That it it is referred out, the coins to pack ratio. Because this is a coin. And then I don't know if that's equals one pack. Somebody one coin to it goes one pack. But then there's also these those flower symbols that was talking about it down if that represents your character. But so there's the like Cayenne pink orangish red verdant green gray scale and then the turquoise. In an assist like a Choo coin. One coin co two packs Serie coins equal four packs. I don't know how many coins equals seven or how many coins equal. I can't quite focus that Kuo saly. So it's maybe by more packs with more coins must be so what you can carry. And then you can have dislike map rolled out with different stops on it. In different symbols seem like they correspond to different cards. But again, there's just there's a serious paintings in their symbols in then on the food basing, there's even a deeper. There's a square set go out below it. So it even like a those are the courses of the meals. Or what? And again, there's just so much color here in even on the background. There was even some prints. It's a mostly white background. But then there's different prints. That's just on the first or let me go to the second. Only open up here in the second game. Second third. Okay. So then they have probably like card pie like places to police your cards. To pull from. So they have the house at night lit up the night. They have hot Seraing cards. They have the person that's in. Pink and magenta carrying something cards have the food based guards they have the verdant harvesting cards. Oh, here's sort of the paintings. So they have it for the verdant harvesting cards. The mountain winner mountain cards in paintings in than the is a beautiful C. See scenery painting. In lake. There's just so many enter, you know, how many different staff she could make extorting at the end. There's one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen fifteen sixteen seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty twenty one twenty two twenty three twenty four twenty five twenty six twenty seven twenty eight thousand nine thirty thirty one thirty two thirty three thirty four thirty five thirty six thirty seven thirty eight thirty nine forty forty one forty two forty three forty four forty five forty six forty seven forty four nine fifty. Like around fifty five, but you my mass Sushil, you're not off. And then they all have the different symbols. Let's see if they correspond to cards. Yeah. In each stop as a symbol corresponding to like the food card. Knight house or some of them correspond to the the painting cards. So in a gift ideas, these are all stop. She would make chew enjoy the journey. So I guess you're stopping for food. I don't I can't. I don't know. Exactly. I I guess they didn't like me the night houses like a hotel where all the travelers meet one another that must be was that is. Then there's. There's a golden colored symbol. I don't know. If there was cards corresponding to that we this where he goes shopping. The spring where you go chill out. One of them must be for shopping. Then there's the food one maybe the night houses where you go shopping in the person, the pink is like a fellow traveler that you meet yet, it might make more sense. And then it's just a maybe collect coins. There's one yellow like how sir looks like again, it looks like there's some sort of like in the foreground couple grazing animals, but has three coins above it. So no, if you stopped there, you get coins. There's also some of them that are further away from the board. So I don't know what those symbols mean. But really Cooley. Game that has a detail and a lot to relax, you know. So I highly recommend, you know, I'll be playing it soon. There's just enough just obviously to to enjoy look at and it's took IDO. So check it out at your local game store. Ideally, or wherever you purchase your games. Good night. I think became a patron recently K J, Michelle and Angie. Thanks. Thanks. Thanks and good night.

Solve These Murders

"Welcome to true crime. Recaps the only podcast bringing you all the crime in half the time with double the you're not gonna believe they shit with your host the one you'd call. If you had to. Hi potty. Amy Townsend when the killing stops, she's just getting started. Okay. Guys, what the hell is happening in parts town, Kentucky five unsolved murders in the space of three years, and maybe you're out whatever bitch, that's completely normal. There's probably been five unsolved murders in my neighborhood this year, alone, and to that, I would say fucking move, and also no, you don't get it. We're not talking about a city like LA, or Miami or New York. No, these murders happened in Bardstown Kentucky. It's an hour south of Louisville and two hours from Nashville, it's claim to fame besides the crime rate are the distilleries around it. We're talking all your Saturday night favorites Jim beam heaven hill. Barton seventeen ninety two and maker's Mark to name only the top view the whole city smells, like bourbon, people that live, there should be swilling mint juleps on their porches. Not looking over their shoulders waiting for a bullet to take them down. Hi, I'm Amy Townsend. And today, I'm catching you up on the ugly side of America's prettiest small town now, whatever's going on in Bardstown came out of the closet and punched public perceptions straight in the face on may twenty fifth twenty thirteen let me introduce you to Jason Ellis. Basically a hometown hero. He was the star baseball player who turned pro in the early two thousands, and he played for the Cincinnati Reds minor league team in two thousand six he became a police officer and in two thousand eight he was officer of the year and he received the governor's award twice. Obviously, whatever this guy does he does. Well, he was also the town's only canine drug officer at the time and that's probably pretty important. When you see what else happened in the city now on that night, a Saturday may twenty fifth. Jason Ellis was driving home late from shift. He was in a police cruiser but not his regular SUV cruiser. That had a camera in it, and a dog that was being painted, so he was driving a different car, which did not have a camera and he didn't have his canine partner with him. He took exit thirty four off the bluegrass Parkway and notice some brush partially blocking the road. So being the conscientious person that he was he pulled over to clear it off, what he didn't know until it was too late was that he had just walked into a berry, very specific trap, laid out, especially for him because when he got out someone shot and killed him that person or persons have never been caught. Awhile. We heard their sirens on night. Don't buy a house, and I thought that must have had a bad car wreck out on the bluegrass and Yvette satis of the officers, conscious. I remember like it was yesterday. Most people involved we'll tell you probably the same thing. It was a it was an awful morning. Almost like unbelievable. And he was hoping that, that wasn't true. And there was a police calling in the middle of the road with the life on. And I we didn't know what it wanted to create across the road. And I didn't know what it was. I got out and went up on him. Believe somebody any and I just kept thinking, maybe he's just hurt badly. Maybe they're not telling me everything there's still that whole. Okay is breathing. Thirty is breathing body temperature co. And then everybody's sauce went who do that. You know and because there is no reasoning at all. It was a homicide. Someone took this officers live and in order to do that someone would have to know when and where he driving home in order to lay that trap and ambush from vantage point off the exit. Do we really think this, some psycho just thought it would be fun to see how many drivers he could take out that way? Or is it more realistic that someone targeted Jason Ellis? Specifically the town's only super. Achiever drug cop on a night. Wouldn't he didn't have a dog that may have alerted him to the presence of killer or cruiser with a camera? And yet, despite the aggressive efforts at the local cops, and the FBI no one has ever been caught. Wow. But Jason he's just the start a little more than a year. Later on April twenty first twenty fourteen to more citizens of Bardstown were murdered, and Kathy and Samantha Netherland. They seem like the last people you would expect anything horrible to happen to capping Netherland was a forty eight year old widow. Her husband, Bob had just died of colon cancer seven months before she was a frequent special Ed teacher. Bardstown elementary for crying out loud. She had two daughters. Samantha and Holly. Samantha was sixteen and totally living her best life. She was in the chorus adventure club and the young leaders program, Holly was nineteen and in college more. Had state university. It's a couple of hours away. Samantha and Kathy lived in a little White House. A little outside of Bardstown right off a busy highway near the intersection of state routes one fifty six oh, five. It's one of those little houses. You see on a road trip and wonder what the people inside do for fun, because it's so far out of the way and quiet, or I don't know. Maybe that's just me but on the morning of April twenty second any cars passing by would have been wondering what the hell happened there. Because that's the morning that neither Samantha or Kathy showed up at school, and they were answering their phones, which was just enough out of character that the school called Kathy's father and he called Cathy sisters, and they all headed over to the house to find out just what was going on. And that's where they found them the crime scene especially brutal they're tied to their chairs. It was obvious they'd been tortured. Kathy had been shot multiple times. Samantha had been hit over in. And over police said later, it was clear that she had got the brunt of the violence for some reason, both their throats were slashed. The whole thing was even more bizarre and appalling because just the day before Kathy had been posting pictures on Facebook of the prom dress and shoes. She and Samantha had found on a shopping trip to Louisville on April nineteenth. She never got a chance to wear it to the prom. Instead, she was buried in it. Police had nothing or you know, almost nothing on surveillance video. They gathered from nearby houses. They found three cars travelling in that area around the time of the murder, which they believed to be around eight pm on April twenty first and of those three cars, only one, a two thousand six to two thousand thirteen black Chevy Impala has never been identified and police are still trying to find that driver, the even going so far as to appeal to rental car, agencies or anyone who. Might lend it out to someone especially if it came back smelling a bleach or with bloodstains, which dear God. Yeah, if I lend my car out, and it comes about with McDonald's represented, I'm annoyed. So for the love of God, if someone borrows your car and returns it with bloodstains or smelling a bleach can we agree that the next step is, may be checking the news for recent murders? Now, if you ask Cali, the only surviving member of the Netherland family of four why they were murdered. She tell you that maybe the killer or killers, had a grudge against the family. I mean, it was a lot of violence up close and personal hands on violence. That's weird for a complete stranger to unleash and there were no signs of forced entry. She thinks it may have been gang violence, maybe retribution or a gang initiation. But retribution against what according to Holly, her mother and sister had spoken out against gangs in the past. But what the hell does that actually mean I mean who hasn't spoken out against gangs, there, anyone out there, actually going around in support of gangs? Oh, yeah. There's nothing wrong with that kid that membership and gang. Can't cure gangs. They're great. They teach loyalty and business skills. I mean, come on, I've seen every episode of sons of anarchy, and if there were any motorcycle gangs in real life that had members. Hot as that. Yeah. All right. Then I'd probably have a lot more positive comments about gangs, too. But until that happens yet put me down for an anti-gang vote to I'm paying what? And even if they were the most outspoken town big deal. It's a sixteen year old and a special Ed teacher. How much damage could they have done to a freaking gang but who knows, certainly not Bardstown police who still five years later have nothing. No DNA from the crime scene. Monas- seems weird right since it was so violent and no witnesses. Just that surveillance video of the black Chevy Impala. Today, we have missed Holly, Netherland or miss Holly Nederland, that's here representing her family. She's the daughter of Kathy and the sister Samantha, she's gonna make a brief statement on the part of the family. So holly. Ugo April twenty second. I got a call. But shattered my life, my mother insisted dead. The post that means in my head and God, you can't take them. You took my daddy can't have to no amount of begging screaming crying was going to come back. Samantha, my movie and hooligan the posted who set next to me it helped me beat the bosses of every video game. I have a play was gone Hughes. The only person I ever known that could name address leopard song by the first few chords. She's my little sister, and my best friend, my mother, the woman raised me the posting put up with me the most my hero when I was little, the woman who gave up so much from the stolen. My sister will never be my maid of honor. I will never get to share the secret with her Samantha will never be able to live doing never drive around the world. Her white blue Mustang. She will never get to take care of the animals SeaWorld Newport. My mom will never get to meet her grandkids. She will never help me plan a wedding. She will never get to go to England island, walk around lands about ends now will never get to tell us you right. She was about everything that I would always knew annisten more that anything in the world. No one realizes just how much I wish I could trade places with them cement, had so much potential that she will never get to. I would give anything Samantha's thing I would give anything to tell my mom is how much she insults. Every now and then I hear the back of my mind. Reminded me of all things to try to instill in me when I was growing up. I smile every time I think of my family, my mom, my dad, my dad playing jokes on my system is, is defining. My dad's designing whatever animals who can't and just made the takes care of all the. Imagine my on this doing this, the best to educate all the children. And I imagine that my dad, we best drive the both nuts. The people who own every painting, I have painted and every thing I ever gone, and I don't know why which is why my family and I had decided to raise would to fifty thousand dollars. We have done this, and hopes to finding answers, if you know, something, I'm begging you, please come forward. Please give us closure. Sadly, she still waiting for that closure. But wait, there's more yet another year later on July third. Twenty fifteen a woman goes missing crystal Rogers mother of five and girlfriend to one Brooks hawk. Crystal was last seen in a WalMart security video on July third twenty fifteen around five pm according to Brooks he in crystal and their two year old son ally, went up to the family. Farm about twenty minutes away to feed the cows that night, he claims he and crystal left the family farm, a little before midnight. Got home around twenty minutes later and went to bed while crystal stayed up playing games on our cell phone when he woke up around seven AM the next morning, his son Eli was sleeping next to him. But there was no sign of crystal when asked if he was not concerned that, crystal the mother of his child was gone when he woke up Brooks. Replied, I was not in the least bit alarmed in any way, shape or form. Although he did admit his relationship with crystal was stressed and at times, she would state our cousin's house. Brooks didn't report crystal missing for two days. Finally, it was our own family that went to the police, her mother, Sherry Ballard told him, I'm going to the police department to report missing. And he said, that's what you should do. And on July fifth police found her maroon Chevy Impala, is it me or there are a lot of impalas in this town, but any case, they found her maroon Impala abandoned with a flat tire on the shoulder of the bluegrass Parkway, inside were her purse, keys and cell phone. But according to crystals brother, there's no way she drove that car there the seat was in the completely wrong position. And she would never have pulled off the road with a tire that was low or flat. She would have driven to the next exit, even if it meant driving on the rim. It was obvious to everyone who knew or that the car was planted there Brooks. A suspect right away. And even though he totally denied any involvement, because what the hell is he going to say he got a very suspicious phone call during his police interview on July eighth from his brother Bardstown police officer Nick how. I love here up here this interview with the detective detective snow. I've been up here a little while. I'm feeling the statement here and everything. That's recumbents needed to. I'm moving on. The ones I look at it. I innocent life in Ronald what you know. Told me innocent people Jamba that you're telling me nothing lead. If you'll be if you'll need. But I'm trying to get this. I don't think I'll bet you on some of the gal. I don't believe that you can't make me think that. I mean that I'll give what you're to do that. Like all that. You speak will just discount me for no reason. This family. This is not. Thank you. John. Nick wrote another. I'm not. He said, just just keeps it gives an interview, whatever I got that he said this to keep just letting them just beat you today over this, this is what you gotta ask, you know, in us, you see what he knows about this and about listening. That for you. Issue. My job is defined Christian, right? My job is to find her under hopefully, allowing will, and save somewhere or not. My job is defined if I don't find live, will my job is to prosecute the person that did something guts, right? If that turns out to be you. My job is to prosecute you, if that turns out to be someone else. My job is to prosecute the together, it's for lawyer prosecutor prosecuted. I didn't know that person will be you or not did I not tell you when you come into them today, that right now you're the main person of interest are, and I explained to you the reason that the main person of interest. Right. You're the last person to see your life. Right. There's an I went through your time line with you and explain to you that there's gaps in time. So basically what happened? There was Brooks brother, Nick told him to leave the interview and then later Nick himself refused to come down and help the investigation, so they gave Nick polygraph, which she was totally sure he would pass. Because he was a hundred percent not guilty of anything and they should fucking. Bring it on. So they did. And here's what happened with that. Another James to review your charts tests that I had a you did not have pretty clear to me, the complete groups that the question you're having problem with their questions about personal and in particular one about whether or not, you know sheets. And I treat police officers in these circumstances. So I wouldn't myself go through the interview Terry -ation instance Saint page. But again, I'm also containing complete truth as we're sitting, and it's no longer matter of wondering the anything about what happened. We're past that. Crystal credit. I give everybody good fair test. I'm no longer asking you if you know you now what you want to do with that is tirelessly to you. And then he totally lost all memory about why dog might have alerted to the bodily fluids on his police cruiser which prompted the police to take his cruiser in for Limonov testing. Are little. All four found blood or other. Louis. So we always street bodily fluids with, you know, Volve it anything Salava, all that is Flores. Why would why would your trunk Smurfit they sprayed while it for us? Will go slots Trump in that, like it just little lecture. No. Wow. Would that be the glove? Other bodily fluids. Shouldn't there shouldn't be anybody? Bob losing car. I mean, there's only one way, bodily fluids into that bodies near. Right. You know that's what I would assume that Ovallis of my in your Trump or something like that. And all that happened. That's the case. Wow. While that big if that blanket when they look at it. With that. None whatsoever. And Nick was eventually fired, but he's got no explanation for that none whatsoever. But never arrested Brooks remains the only official suspect but to this day he's never had charges filed against him. Either mainly because the county prosecutor has said that he can't try a case based on every single thing looking really fucking bad, otherwise, known as Santeuil evidence, but I prefer our term port because it looks really fishy as hell. Although one guy did do some time for crystal's disappearance in January twenty sixteen Danny singleton a man who worked as a handyman for Brooks, because Brooks owns one hundred twenty nine properties and eleven houses, will Danny was indicted on thirty eight counts of perjury in connection to crystal's disappearance. He went to jail for six months, and to this day, he remains the only person to ever serve time for what happened to her, but not for lack of trying sort of law enforcement has conducted. I five searches on the family's farm where Brooke said he in crystal were on July third. However, no one searched his house until a year after she disappeared. And even though police have carted away a ton of evidence from the farm, and Brooks, own grandmother, has even gone, so far as deplete, the fifth, so she wouldn't have to testify in front of a grand jury about anything. She may or may not know about our grandsons using both her farm and her car for something fishy. That may or may not have happened when crystal may or may not have been freaking murdered by her shady's boyfriend Brooks, who may or may not have been helped to get away with it by Nick, who was probably the most obviously crooked Bardstown cop ever caught on tape. And July of twenty seventeen Brooks new girlfriend, crystal mopping was arrested after she was caught on camera ripping up. Fine, crystal signs that were connected to the investigation for, which she pled guilty, because she was caught on video, honestly girl, come on. I get that dating in a place like Bardstown is probably hard as hell. I mean, how many single men of appropriate age could there be there, but girl, please? I don't care how many properties your new boyfriend owns. If you know that most of the town thinks he probably killed his ex girlfriend whose name was also crystal is he the best person to be hanging out with. And then taking the extra mile to start tearing up signs, his dead ex girlfriend's family is putting up ladies at some point, don't we all kind of have to get it together and say enough is enough, but maybe she's one of those no body, no crime type of people and cadaver dog. Have alerted on various areas of the health family farm, but nobody has ever been found. Of course, it is more than two hundred fifty acres, so that would need a lot of dogs. But wait, there's more on November nineteenth twenty sixteen crystals bother Tommy Ballard was shot when he was out with his eleven year old grandson hunting. But this was no hunting accident, the shot came from the side of the bluegrass Parkway, only about six mile markers from where crystals car was found. And in the oxygen channel documentary about this case called the disappearance of crystal Rogers, you can see that some of the brush and trees were clearly cut away to create a sight line between the overgrowth to the exact spot where Tommy was shot. Tommy's only purpose in life, before he was murdered was to find out who killed crystal. He was actively investigating going so far as to get surveillance video from businesses. Interviewing anyone who might have seen anything basically doing what you might call good, old fashioned police work. And he must've been getting close to something without being aware of it, because he started to believe that he was being followed. He even installed a camera on the back of his truck to catch someone tailing him. Oh, that tape was turned over to the Kentucky state police after his murder, but and this will shock you. No one has ever been arrested for it, even though. And again brace yourself he believed without a doubt that Brooks killed his daughter. And do you think all these murders are connected starting with Jason Ellis in twenty thirteen to the murder of Kathy and Samantha Netherland in twenty fourteen to crystal Rogers, disappearance assumed murder in twenty fifteen and then ending with her father, Tommy Ballard twenty sixteen a whole lot of people. Sure, do in March twenty seventeen Sherry Ballard crystals. Mom said she thought her daughter may have disappeared because she overheard something, maybe she shouldn't have something related to the murder of Jason Ellis. She went on to say her husband, Tommy was never gonna give up that he. Was going to keep pushing and I think people knew that she definitely thinks it was all connected. And if it was connected, then how like Nancy, drew always said, probably it all starts with the first murder. Jason Ellis was a drug cop since the nineteen seventies BART's down in the surrounding area has been home to the cornbread, mafia. A group of farmers who are growing and selling cannabis together and at their peak ran the largest marijuana production operation in the United States. They got their name. Because corn bread is the code word. They used for cannabis and probably party supplies. My fiance just sounded a little too much like a balloon company, the head of that group that godfather of grass himself, seventy four year old, Johnny Boone was arrested in December of twenty sixteen in Canada after being on the run for more than eight years and not to go too far off on a tangent. But before you go one. Wondering how bad it Kentucky farmer in his seventies could be about a bunch of cannabis, which is basically almost legal anyway. Right. Well, stop because it's been reported that this guy would guard his crops with rottweilers with their vocal cords removed. So you wouldn't hear them before they rip your throat out and his crew it said, booby-traps like fish hooks hung at I level dynamite with trip, wires and live rattlesnakes tied to poles. First of all, does he know about this guy because he definitely has a lot to answer for in terms of animal safety. But yeah I mean I doubt he them pita would wanna mess with him. And is it just a coincidence, that the last murder in this string of unsolved killings in Bardstown happened, just a month before he was arrested other theories from residents of Bardstown say that the police, there are or were at least hoping protect the bulk of the drug trafficking in the area, and maybe officer, Jason Ellis was getting a little too close down? Covering that or that another gang called the Bardstown money, gang 'cause these gang members are creative is hell, right? We live in barred stone. We like money working. Let's just call ourselves, the BMG. Yep. Was creative. Is that may be? They're also the only ones claiming responsibility for officer lss murder. And one of their members Brandt, shackles. He's the nephew of the mayor Bill shackles, who was in office at the time of the murder, but not even the police actually believe he did it. They just think they're punks trying to make people afraid of them. But Jason Ellis did arrest three of their members.
