He's joining Fox's NFL kickoff, which is at 11 a .m. Eastern every Sunday little pregame action Julian Edelman Julian, how's it going? Going well, how are you doing? I'm doing well. I'm doing very well cuz football is here. So it was back Thank God is fully back. I Mean, I wish I wish the trends Kelsey wasn't hurt because I feel like that takes a little bit away from the opening game But it is what it is If you look at it though over the last However, many years the Kansas City Chiefs have been on this run. They've had relatively pretty decent help Throughout their whole thing. I mean they left they lost the left tackle in the Super Bowl That's why they lost against, you know, Brady they couldn't protect Patrick Mahomes but it's it's getting to that time in their Era it where gets hard, you know being a guy that's been on one of those teams a dynasty. They're not there quite yet but uh You know, they're well on their way if they could stay healthy and you would know better than anyone about dynasty So when would you say they're there? How many would they have to win before you say they're a dynasty everyone knows it's three Okay, I don't know what's going on. Everyone keeps on talking like oh This is you you into no, it doesn't matter if you get to the Super Bowl We went to eight straight AFC championships or something like that. Like you got to win three to get to be in Cowboys previous Patriots Niners Steelers It's not two. It's not two So tell me I want to get into your Fox gig and transitioning to meeting that since we're on it It's a good topic because I'm just curious because one of the things I'm looking at is someone who's scouting Over -unders to bet and and you know who's gonna win the AFC and stuff like that The I Motivation shouldn't say the motivation. I mean, I think the motivation is there even if you win But is it difficult or how difficult is it after winning two like they've won? It's very difficult To get geared up every Sunday, you know people don't realize How hard it is once you go out win a Super Bowl Okay, now they have two that when you win that first one you become a target everyone circles you on the schedule You win another one now everyone circling now now Divisions and conferences are designing their teams to beat you. So it gets harder and harder and as an individual player You know Your motivation you have to pull what what's motivating you because natural human instinct you're like You know, we got this we're good and then you know something happens you have injuries here an injury They're a player doesn't sign back because no two teams are the same. It's a new team every year. So it's very hard mentally To keep it going, you know And you have and they have a leader in Patrick Mahomes that can do that We had Tom Brady Tom Brady was always always on he was like he was always motivated So that gives you hope for the Kansas City Chiefs because they have such a great player and Patrick Mahomes who's their leader You know their best player is is their quarterback is their leader and the way he is is huge. Do you think? the intensity to beat the Chiefs to throne the Chiefs is Similar to what you guys experience and I ask you from this standpoint and I hope you don't take offense to this But I feel like I feel like the Chiefs are not hated in any way I'd feel like no one dislikes Mahomes No one dislikes Andy Reid you guys and I think it was mainly because of your success But there were people who didn't like Tom for whatever reason there was the ridiculousness with the flake eight the stupidest thing ever people didn't like Belichick, maybe You guys I don't think we're like Completely beloved whereas KC seems like I don't know who maybe people are sick of Travis Kelsey a little bit Like our teams you think is amped up to beat the Chiefs as they were you guys I Think the games changed the player has changed Just as an overall, I mean we look at games nowadays you got guys over here You know dapping up helping guys back back when we were playing the Jets when I first got in the league Bart Scott was mother -effing Billy O 'Brien on the sideline guys were fighting before, you know, it's just it's kind of changed And it could be for good or could be for bad. That's for weather for everyone else to determine But and also, you know, the Kansas City Chiefs that the Patriots were on it for 20 years Okay, like when I got there they already had three Super Bowls and they were on a little drought, you know But they were still winning, you know, they went 7 16 and oh they you know 14 win seasons they were still putting out big winning seasons for a long a longer time and You know the Chiefs just haven't been there I'm so I'm sure the Chiefs keep on doing well that people are gonna start hating them too, you know, yeah. Yeah The I want to get into some other stuff about the Patriots and and Belichick and Brady and but let's talk about you going to Fox you did inside the NFL. I enjoyed you on there I wrote that a couple times for SI. Now. You're gonna be on the Fox NFL kickoff show. It's remarkable I don't know if you've seen it Maybe you just know it off the top of your head because you friends with all these people but it is remarkable how every patriot is in media now is on TV, you know, you've got the McCordy's Gronk is part of the Fox family. Everyone knows about the Brady situation McGinnis the TV Bruschi It's like if you're on you were part of our Patriot team good love winners. Yeah people love winners Yeah, and they hate them so, you know you get a little bit of both They're either gonna love your hate you but they're gonna watch you It's like you had no choice but to go into TV basically after after all it's it's I don't know it's uh, You know when you play for an organization like New England and You've had the success that we had over the years that we played, you know It opens up a lot of doors and it's plain and simple. That's that's really what it is The the sacrifice and the efforts that we put into our career helped us after our career and a lot of guys you know, they have that hard work mentality that still want to stay in the game, but may not want to be coaches and And that's what media is, you know, that's what I feel. You know, I get my football fix by Going into a pre -production meeting and I haven't done it with Mike Vick or Charles Woodson or Chris and Thomas or Peter Shrager But you get your football locker room kind of vibe when you do those like when I was on inside the NFL I'm sitting there talking with Phil Simms Patrick, uh, you know, Brandon Marshall Michael Irving, Ray Lewis, James Brown and you have these These meetings where you just get to sit and talk football It's before you go on the lights are shining but you sit and you're talking stories You're breaking football down with people that play football So, I think that's a huge probably reason about it and you know, it's not you know We're used to putting in these crazy hours 14 -hour days Seven days a week don't get this year family and media, you know, like you got to do your homework You got to you got to watch all the games, but you know, we can still have a life outside of it, you know These guys are going coach. I mean people always ask me. Why aren't you in coaching and I go You know, I did my time Like I put my my 12 13 14 hour days in and when I would leave work I would see coaches families in the parking lot Seeing the coaches before they would go to bed because they still had another three hours. I ain't doing that Yeah, you know and then if you go somewhere else where it's not like that Then I'm mentally all messed up because well, there's some people that are doing it, you know So it's just I like I'm happy or I'm mad. I'm excited to go out and entertain and talk my knowledge When you were playing and you're playing days towards the end of your career Did you think you would get into TV or did you not think about it while you were playing? I Didn't necessarily think I'd become an analyst and do what I'm doing right now I always enjoyed creating content You know whether it was our YouTube videos our Instagram videos and all the content we build on J around je11 You know that was booming with with the Patriot nation that would always support, you know I always I found a niche in that and and I enjoyed that process of creating content going in and sitting in a you know in a editing room and and Filming up all this stuff and thinking it's gonna be terrible and then cutting it down and then you know having all your other team Because there's a team of people, you know That put put the work in to to get this good content out and I enjoyed it So I didn't know it was gonna be to the extent of what I'm doing right now but I knew you know, I was comfortable in front of a camera and you know, I know I faced for radio, but Thank God I won a lot of games Had it and just tell me were were there other networks like in the running to get your services Was it just Fox like I'd end up at Fox why Fox? Tell me a little bit about joining I want to say any other names there were, you know There was another network that was involved and I sat down and I thought Fox would be perfect You know, I got a couple teammates there with Gronk Brady You know, I'm really excited to get to hang out with you know Charles Woodson and in talk football with Mike Vick and Chris Thompson Peter Schrager and you know Fox is like a If you know the story behind Fox, I mean they were created as This little small sport network with John Madden.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 08/07/23
"Any excuse to throw down some James Brown, but I got to thinking I wanted to make a point here. I know why you're doing this. Yeah, James Brown is not what you would call a movement conservative, and James Brown saw Jim Crow in his face for decades and loved this country. Mike loved this country. So I don't know, man, not everybody has to. I'm thinking Living in America is not on Megan Rapinoe's playlist. Or maybe it shouldn't, well, and maybe Living in America shouldn't be on her long -term bucket list of plans. I'm not a love it or leave it person. You get to live here and hate the country. It's part of your free speech. But doggone it, is anybody mystified why somebody who hates this country and tries to jam radical trans ideology down our throats, why it's a little harder for people to root for that team, it broke my heart, Mike, to see them lose. I wanted them to win, but to see them lose and then to have people just joyous, just celebrating, not just our American loss in the Women's World Cup, but because it was largely because of her shanking a penalty kick. It ain't the way we should be. Okay, it's not the way we should be, really. So let me put you on the spot a little bit, my dear friend. Sure. Are you joyous over seeing a conservative, successful attempt to get the attention of Bud Light or Target or Bed Bath and Beyond? Enormously so. So it's the same thing. I mean, it's the exact same thing. Except it's not because this is my country. What country is Bud Light in? But Bud Light is not my country. The men and women who wear our uniform in international competitions. That is our country on the world stage. I call BS. The Women's Cup, the US World Soccer Cup is not my country. Bud Light's my country. There's a whole bunch of hardworking men and women who are drivers, who are distributors, mom and pops, who have been decimated by the Bud Light pushback. And guess what? We sit back and we find that joyous because finally, whoa, companies are getting the message. And that's an American company. So all I would humbly submit is, if you're as... I know, draw your tears. I know. I know. You know, I mean, come on. It's soccer and nothing wrong with that. But here's what I find even more intriguing than the joyous response to the women's team losing. After the big loss at the World Cup, Rapinoe gave an interview, of course, gave interviews after the game was over. And she was asked what her favorite memory of playing for the US soccer team was. Do you know what her answer was, Mark? I would think it might be representing our country, wearing the flag, making my country men and women proud of us on the world stage. I'm guessing that was not it. I'm not kidding you, equal pay. The memory of fighting for equal pay so that women could make as much money for his men in this, of course, bigoted, offensive, awful. And she didn't say that. Those are my words. But she did say her answer was about equal pay. It had nothing to do with playing on the field. It had nothing to do with representing the United States of America. Or even teammates making these friends for life and bonding with them in an effort to bring... The failure to establish equal pay. That's her favorite memory. So I think we can all pretty much agree, and I hate to get personal, she's a pretty reprehensible character. She just is. And it's too bad that she became the face of the US women's team so that now millions and millions of people were delighted to see her shank the penalty kick that she could have been the hero and instead she lost. Would you kindly address the other one I brought up of where our minds and hearts have been broken a little bit? Can we start with the notion that if anybody sees a meme of George Floyd with crab legs coming off him and it's under the knee, like under the sea from Sebastian the Little Mermaid, that that's disgusting and that to even like it is unbelievably stupid. So far so good? So far so good. NASCAR driver Noah Gregson did exactly that. He's been indefinitely suspended. He should not lose his career. His apology should mean something However, dude, how stupid do you have to be? Are you with me on that? I guess I am. I mean, it's like you said, he's a 25 year old guy, stupidly liking something, but you also have to be pretty careful. If you're in the public sphere, you better be careful. You got people watching you. You got people following your every move. You've got a public persona. I mean, I know you're careful. I'm careful. And it's not hard. If I saw that on somebody's Instagram, I don't have to stop and think about it for 10 minutes. Like, huh, should I like that? In South Lake, we had a couple of cops fired because they got up on a whiteboard, no pun intended, and drew a swastika during a recruiting meeting. How stupid do you have to be? So, I mean, it's just dumb stuff. And you don't, I mean, how people don't follow the, like you said, the little, does it pass the smell test? Is this something that could get me in trouble? I mean, if you're in there now, you and I are in a little bit of a different world than a NASCAR driver, but certainly a NASCAR driver has the ability to say that, Hey, I'm going to like something here. This could get me, you know, get me some headaches. And in line with that, I got to ask you about the, what's the Dallas express? Is that, is that part of the Dallas Morning News? It's a no, no, Lord, no, no, no, no, no. Oh, is it conservative? It is by all means. It is a, it is a news site of conservative value. Oh, okay. Cause I've never seen it, but I, the article came across my desk today about sign, people have noticed over at the American Airlines Center in Dallas that a funny take on American Airlines woke policies and they've gone woke. I mean, American Airlines is all about diversity, equity and inclusion and all that. And so they've got fake signs up, focusing on the big high profile boxing match between Jake Paul and Nate Diaz. The signs were located in different places around the arena in Victory Park and other parts of downtown Dallas. Some of the signs said things like, welcome to woke American Airlines. My pronouns are he, she, it, lost baggage.

"This is overlooked often can be accomplished during life. These things don't have to necessarily just be thrown into the will and and these conversations you're talking about about intention and thinking about what they actually want to do it beyond the vagaries of wanna give the rest away which a lot of clients will say something like. Sean can help establish these things but even more valuable as well now that we've figured out where we want to give that you want. Give it if you can afford to give it now. Why are we waiting so there are actually pros and cons to giving now for example. If you make a gift now you get actually to benefits you. Get a charitable income tax deduction which would save income tax. And that might be pretty valuable and you in effect. Get a charitable estate tax deduction because the assets that you give now don't exist in your estate at your death and therefore would never be subject to a state tax on the other hand if you give the assets now you no longer own them and you can no longer benefit from them economically and i have clients as you can imagine who kind of need to keep their assets for the rest of their life in order to ensure their own personal financial security that everybody is in that position of course plenty of clients are aware of the fact that they have more than they need and can afford to give a philanthropy now and i have some other clients you might call entrepreneurial philanthropists who take the view that they can grow their estate inside of their estate to a much greater extent than a philanthropy ever could so they're keeping their assets in their estate because they're making a lot of money and their intention is to give grown and the growth assets to charity at death. So it's an interesting decisions. Should we give now or we wait and give until death tying into what you said before. It's something that should be discussed. Right is one of these things that don't leave it. You know throw a big claws into the into a will or an estate plan and then leave it to be decided later because like james brown is we saw had even had trust that up. But you know things come up your children..

I'm not going there. But i am outraged. I am disappointed and multitude of people on that one. Because i was taking a look at the film i was taking a look at the instance of what happened and from what i saw was the fact that when the police officer responded he immediately as soon as he got out of his car he immediately put his his hand on his holster. Okay so right there. He's looking for shit to happen because what is from the film was there. Were two females outside or two girls outside. What are the girls was talking shit.

If he was selecting between joe burrow and trevor lawrence joe burrow with the number one pick of the cincinnati bengals last season the number one pick in the nfl draft. This afc kill said he. Would it be obvious that he would pick borough over lowest one hundred one hundred hundred times out of one hundred. He says if you don't take him out of if you don't take him if you don't take him in your jacksonville and it turns out that he was a perennial pro bowler. You'll never live it down. But i but they have to take him. I think the intangibles are there. He can throw the ball but he does not have unique rare playmaking ability. If i'm comparing last year to this year joe burrow is picked over travel one hundred times out of one hundred one. Afc quarterback coach said. He would take while us that wilson over trevor lawrence saying if i was picking the one who man that i'd be hard for me not to take him over trevor. He's not he's got real playmaking ability. He's shorted in lawrence. I get it. Police got ball all about him. He makes plays unique place. I don't know what that means though is like okay. No-one said that he's going to be a bust. No-one said that. I don't know about this guy. Man you know. I mean this guy might not have. This might not have that. I'm saying that he might be a guy where we're looking at jameis winston type. We're looking at a marcus. Mariota type where you know by his fifth or sixth year. He might be on another team because he just didn't live up to expectations. No one is saying that everyone is saying that. Well you know he might not be the generational all-time great that many people are predicting him to be all. Or i find. That doesn't mean that he's going to be a postal. I mean i. I think that he should be drafted number. One i'm not an nfl scale but you know the fact that people are saying well he's going to be very good but then an all time..

Damn your shot seven people for those who think that beef amongst artists started with hip hop and started with biggie into punk nip. A lot of the stuff has been going on long before those days remember when to punt was killed. And then biggie get killed and everybody was talking about. Manuel hip hop. And this is going off the rails. Something needs to stop. You're killing each other and this is terrible. This is horrible and then of course the media who don't know anything about the culture who don't know anything about the who didn't know anything about the the art itself in the environment the community they all piled in started talking about. Oh my goodness gracious artists getting killed by each other and artists are getting murdered in hip hop and this is what happens when you have filthy lyrics and you have a lyrics about violence and for some reason. I thought that this was something new that rock and roll. And all this other stuff you know true rock and roll white man's rock and roll watered rock and roll country music all type of shit everything was hunky dory and everything was wonderful and everything will euphoric and nothing of that nature ever took place until this culture from the ghetto came along and we started talking about shit bitches niggers and all this kind of stuff. And you know we're gonna be doing this and we're going to treat women like shit and all this kind of stuff and then that led to the culture killing these artists. My goodness races hip hop is just a stain on our society. And all this bullshit and it's kinda like well. Y'all really didn't do your homework.

Take anything from him and the impact on hand for through his music can't take any way can't take that from him. But how do we create that with all the other stuff that he did. I mean he beat the living shit out of tammi. Terrell beat the living shit. You david ruffin did a number on tammi terrell far physical abuse. Shit that was. That wasn't even a a coma.

Especially the way. Paul george i keep coming back to the los angeles clippers and i keep coming back focusing on paul george who had been playing quietly all nba basketball. Not for a couple of days. Not for a couple of weeks. Not just against the bad teams for the entire flipping season. Maybe the embarrassment a what happened to him in the bubble this past offseason this past playoff season and the way he got clowned by fellow. Nba players. Maybe that lit a fire under paul.

Patrick beverley is concerned. We do know that. Ron regime rondo always turns up his game. Tenfold wants the playoff hits especially as you go deeper into the playoffs. So there a possibility that the clippers biggest weakness on their squad point guard had been taken care of okay. He wasn't kyle lowry okay. He isn't ricky rubio. But still you take a look at how valuable in the contributions that region rondo. May for the lakers. Last year can duplicate that. Come close to that with the los angeles clippers. Paul george continues to play type of basketball. He's been playing in the regular season. Brings it over to the playoffs choir. Leonard does quite limit things. I'm taking a look at the.

"If New york had a decent mayor and something could be done to where we could be at a point where you could put some folks in madison square garden for a playoff game because that would be absolutely fantastic. First time to seven years you know to be that atmosphere but you know it's it's great. It's wonderful for the lincoln is also a major market in a season where the nba ratings are down and everything like that. Have new york back and play at least at the playoff team. Think also but long term. What are we going to be talking about every year. The nba sweat dream is having the new york. Knicks play the los angeles lakers in the nba championship. Wouldn't it be. Shouldn't it be the two biggest markets in the nba. I'm sorry this ain't football football. You can get away with green bay. Packers playing the pittsburgh steelers or you can get away with jacksonville. Jaguars playing the. I don't know man playing the arizona cardinals or some shit like that. Basically while i'm saying is with the super bowl you got that built in. That's going to be close to seventy five. Eighty ninety million doesn't matter doesn't matter the indianapolis colts could be playing the. I don't know who gives the fox of the nfl. In seventy five eighty million people are still gonna watch and then you have spring practice and the ratings for the spring practice of the jacksonville. Jaguars is going to probably blow away. Game seven of the nba championship between the lebron. James lead school this that and the other and the janas the coupon milwaukee bucks blah blah blah. It don't matter. Lebron james ain't gonna say the nba from juggernaut known as the nfl. There's no pro athlete. There's no pro sports. There's no sports team. That's going to save the their lead from. What is the juggernaut of sports leaks in this country. Which is the. nfl doesn't matter. You can have game. Seven of the world series between the los angeles dodgers and the new york yankees garrett cole going up against Clayton kershaw and if the cincinnati bengals decided to hold a walk through and cbs is gonna televise that nationally. That's that's going to destroy ratings. Wise interest wise game seven of and say that but basically you know what i'm getting at right that basically football supersedes everything but the nba. If you have a finals worse going to be the sacramento kings versus the indianapolis pacers. No one's gonna watch nobody except for the hardcore basketball fist. Nobody's gonna watch if you don't have lebron james if you don't have steph curry if you don't have kevin durant if you don't have james harden if you don't have janas don't have luca if you don't have those types of superstars plane in the nba. Finals nobody is going to watch except family friends. And die hearts. You need stars and you need big markets in your finals..

I was speaking about the I was speaking about the new york. Knicks about for the league is good. It's great. it's awesome one nine nine zero something like that. I think is grit good rate. Awesome that the knicks making the playoffs. Fantastic wonderful but from a nick organizational standpoint is like okay we lose the first round and we look back and say you know what maybe this season okay. Small mike you know Small picture good big picture. We missed out on kate telling him. We missed out on evan mobely. We missed out on jonathan mingo. We missed out on jalen shrugs and we missed out on jalen green so this season might be nice but is this going to be consistent or is this just because of the woolly wacky season. Seventy two games very short off season not to me. Folks if any in the stands. What's what can we deduce from the season. If you're the new york knicks. Can julius randle repeat the year that he's having right now. I mean the players. How long is it going to be before. Tom timoteo. where's out. The organization is going to be two years. Is it going to be five. Years isn't going to be halfway through next year when the knicks aren't living up to expectations because let's say let's just say for instance to make the playoffs. We'll go on the assumption that the next going to be making the playoffs. All right all right all right all right all right all right. So they're going to be making the playoffs. They beat the hawks or they beat. Whoever they're going to be playing in the first round they make it to the semifinals. Hell let's say they take the seventy sixers to six hard-fought games right next season. Knick fans come on now y'all not expectations and are gonna be moving up another level. Julius wrangles is only gonna get better. Reggie bullock been unbelievable emmanuel quickly. It's only gonna get better. Derrick rose is going to be that solid guy. You know we've got some pieces here to where we should be better. So it's like the expectations for the next four.

Start off and scuttle buddy or there's stumbling and stumbling and bumbling might sometimes i do with my podcast out the gate i mean. What's the tom.

Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman star in 'Ma Rainey'
"The enter chadwick. Boseman died of cancer in august at the age of forty three not long after he finished shooting the movie mall. Rainey's black bottom now streaming on netflix. The movie stars viola. Davis is the famous blue singer mall rainy and was adapted from august. Wilson's play our film critic. Justin chang says that boseman's final screen performance ranks among his very best. One reason chadwick boseman was such. An extraordinary actor was his ability to command the screen without hogging the spotlight. His presence was so quietly magnetic that even when he played real life. Heroes like jackie robinson and thurgood marshall or fictional ones like king to challa in black panther. He still seemed like the most self effacing of movie stars but boseman could also go big like when he took on james brown in the musical bio-pic get on up and gave his most electrifying performance. Until now it's devastating. That ma rainey's black bottom is the last new. Boseman movie will ever see this. Excellent adaptation of august wilson's nineteen eighty to play from the director george c wolfe and the screenwriter ruben. Santiago hudson is both a precious parting gift and a punch in the gut even more than get on up. Boseman holds nothing back. He emptied himself out onscreen. He plays levy a gifted and ambitious trumpet player struggling to forge his way in a white man's world or this case a white man's recording studio where most of the movie takes place. It's a sweltering hot day in nineteen twenty seven chicago in the pioneering southern blues singer ma rainey played by a superb viola. Davis is planning to record some of her most popular songs. Mas name may be in the place title. But she isn't the main narrative focus here much of the story unfolds while the four musicians in her band are waiting for her to show up at the studio. During the rehearsal session cutler the guitar and trombone player played by colman. Domingo wants to stick with their usual arrangement for a particular song but levy wants to use a new edgier version that he composed. It doesn't take long for the arguments to start and the egos to emerge. How's your name in. So i just played a piece whatever they want them. Criticizing the people's music like you. I got talent. Oh man is we tagged. My dad had a note. I was gonna turn out like the name mccabe. I'm going to give me a bad and make some shots. I don't give them instead of my. I wrote and he say going to let me record when i get my band together. I just got last part of song. I got stopped or everybody gets out there. And other keeping the same idea from the beginning in everybody got a game plan for all his outward swagger boseman later lays bare. The anguish beneath levies self-assured grin in a spellbinding monologue about his southern childhood. He reveals the acts of violence that were committed against his family by a gang of white men he's witnessed unspeakable horrors and fought hard for his shot at success. And he's not about to let anyone stand in his way not even marini herself when she finally shows up at the studio via davis who won an oscar for her work. In another wilson. Adaptation fences is magnificent. Here in the kind of full throated diva showcase. She's rarely taken on becoming more rainy. Required quite the transformation davis wears a padded rubber suit and sports. A mouthful of gold teeth and her vocals are supplied by the singer. Maxine lewis but the performance never feels needlessly. Flashy and davis is best moments are the ones in which she shows us. Ma rainey's anxious calculating side when she stops the recording session because no one's brought her the bottle of coke she always insists on before singing. She isn't just causing a fuss. Exactly what she's worth and how much power she commands in a predominantly white male industry and she's determined to push yourself right up to that line without crossing it marines. Black bottom is one of ten plays in august. Wilson's epic pittsburgh cycle and the only one that isn't actually set in pittsburgh wilson's insights into the complexities of twentieth century. African american experience cemented his reputation as one of this country's greatest dramatists. The filmmakers haven't opened up the material in the manner of so many stage to screen adaptations if anything they've ruthlessly tightened the play and paired it down to essentials wolf directs at a furious clip. The sets are spare even drab which has the effect of your concentration on the performances and while boseman and davis are the stars of the show. Every actor gets a chance to shine including michael potts as the bass player. Slow drag and glenn termine reprising his role as the pianist toledo from twenty sixteen revival at the heart of the play is the bond between levy a fictional creation and rainy. A real life figure. The two are antagonistic by nature levy keeps trying to put his own stamp on mas music and he makes the mistake of trying to seduce. Her young girlfriend played by taylor. Page but levy and ma are also kindred spirits. They're both trying to make authentic commercially viable art with an assistant bent on exploiting their talents but levy doesn't have martinis experience or her knack for self preservation and the weight of his past trauma ultimately proves too much to overcome the climax is hunting beyond words were seeing a man peering into an abyss played by an actor who knew his own life was slipping away chadwick.

Many observers shock the guitar had been in a death spiral for years. According to the new york times writer. Alex williams reminded readers than twenty seventeen. Eric clapton himself said maybe the guitar is over. But this september the times reversed course hold the obituaries. Williams wrote six months into the pandemic. He wrote quote. People are turning to the guitars. Quarantine companion and psychological south spurring a surge in sales for some of the most storied companies. That has shocked. Even industry veterans sales of fender guitars especially the iconic stratocaster are off the charts so to gibson which had declared bankruptcy in two thousand eighteen and other instrument makers in virtual teachers are also happily for the most part struggling to keep up with demand to capitalize on that trend. Guitar center is airing twenty-five inspirational origin. Stories from musicians on. Its youtube channel. The retailers make music. Camping started early this month. They'll keep adding new performer. Profile through december twenty four th in addition guitar center is asking musicians everywhere to post their own videos to social media answering the question hashtag why we make music kicking off guitar. Center's campaign was grammy award winning musician. Hdr talking about being surrounded by musicians as a child. Here's a clue. My dad had a cover band when i was a little girl and they would rehearse every family gathering you know my mom's filipino. Filipinos love karaoke. So a lot of karaoke housing's lot. James brown and you know a bunch of old guys you know playing bass drums and jim out all the time in my house. But here's the rub a surging guitar keyboard and drum sales has bullied guitar center but not anywhere near enough last saturday.

Even though online sales picked up later in the year the business will continue selling instruments online and off and said it will continue paying employees and vendors in full guitar center operates. Three hundred stores in the. Us also owns music and arts which sells and rents instruments to school orchestras through. Its two hundred stores. Guitar center hopes to exit bankruptcy by the end of the year. It's difficulties began years ago. Actually two thousand seven. Bain capital took it private in a leveraged buyout. That deal left guitar center with more than a billion dollars of debt. The new york times reported under its bankruptcy plan about eight hundred million dollars of debt will be wiped out still retail dive reports that leveraged buyouts of led to the struggles or outright downfalls of numerous retailers think sears neiman marcus and lucky brands among others but for guitar center online rivals also hurt amazon of course but also sweetwater which specializes in music and audio equipment unlike amazon it employs sales people knowledgeable about both music and audio equipment sweetwaters sales of instruments in podcast gear have spiked during the pandemic. All of which is why. It's so important for tar center to employ a little inspiration to sell as many guitars and other instruments this holiday season as it possibly can to stars potential stars and well the rest of us
David Dinkins, New York's first Black mayor, dies at 93
"Former new york city mayor. David dinkins passed away last night at the age of ninety three. Join now but the reverend al sharpton president the next action network and host of politics nation. Right here on. Msnbc and rev. i've met david dinkins in person because you. I met him through you. I think he was here to do at thirty rock to do an interview for your show. And i'm so excited to meet him. He was such a great man. What are you remember. most about David dinkins well. I knew david dinkins. Since i was a teenager when i was sixteen and started my national youth movement group. He was the lawyer that incorporated us and down through the years. We maintain the relationship. And sometimes i would argue would on call them names and one hundred be more strident and it took time to understand that. He had such grace even under the most tumultuous circumstances and i felt he should be more strident. He said al. You have to learn how to get the job done. Keep your eye on the prize. But i most remember. Is that when we were facing a police. Killing of a young man named ahmadou diablo. Who in the hell of forty one bullets was killed. Nine thousand nine hundred bullets for only gone in his debut. Stick in a key in the door and the police thought. They said they thought he had a weapon. He was just going home. They were looking for someone else and david dinkins. When we started protests every day we would go down to the police headquarters. The main one in new york and sit in and hundreds would be arrested. He called me one. One is at what time y'all have. The demonstrations was a former. I said ten in the morning. he's coming down. I said but we're getting arrested. He's out seeing the morning and he came down and went to one police plaza where he had been mayor and got on a knee way before colin cabinet. He took a knee and was arrested and had them cuffed him with congressman. Charlie rangel and himself and me and we went to jail fighting police reform that he started with that civilian complaint review board. He never left the struggle. He was not wanting to be loud and boisterous but he was firm and made real change happen. Yeah absolutely you know. We started off and we could see charlie rangel and james brown. Lots of people in the photos that are that. I don't know if you can see them. That are coming up as as you're talking and you know we started off by talking about the way that dinkins was taken out of office by rudy. Giuliani this rage. That giuliani stoked already. There in the police against what mayor dinkins wanted to do which was changed policing. I feel like we're kind of having a rerun of that conversation about black lives matter about whether or not police should be free to kill it will in black communities. He tried to do something about it. Wouldn't you take from that fight. Is it dispiriting to think that after great men like this have tried after. You've tried after we've had all of these movements. We're still fighting about this were you. Were you fight you win. You don't fight to say the fight is over in a certain amount of rows. This is not pro boxing wrestling. You fight to you win and every struggle has had long struggles. I remember when nelson mandela gain which you mentioned then david dinkins had me as potted group. That went to the un with him. And just jackson. All of us. And when i thought about it took nelson mandela being jailed. Twenty seven years after fighting many decades around the pon-tae. How can we complain about fighting. We fight to. We win knowing that the victory is certain. And that's what they dickens would always say and as i want more national from new york activism. He said you still fighting. Now keep fighting. He come down national action network rallies. In fact he was there just a few months ago. We had his ninetieth birthday there and we never forgot this. Gentle giant had a had a spine of steel. And he didn't need to be boisterous he just needed to be effective and he was the one that broke that ceiling and made people know you could be the ceo of the biggest city in the world and perform. He revitalized times square. He started this whole community policing and in many ways you are more than correct. Joy is almost like to study donald trump. You have to study rudy giuliani. They took credit for things then get predecessor did and they used race to try and rev up a political career that ended up embarrassing them at the end. Indeed amen. thank you reverend now. It's always great to talk with you. Revenue sharpen. Thank you very much. I

"I am about to or I am going to die either expression is correct. These were the last words of seventeenth century, French, Jesuit, priest grammarian, and man after my own Heart Dominique Boehner. Narrowly, edged out by eighteenth century French Aristocrat who declared I see you have made three spelling mistakes. As. He read over his own death warrant. We assign a lot of significance to last words hoping that we'll leave some deep philosophical epitaph or something funny like what's this button do?
