Well, in fact, the video surveillance system in the hotel where Navalny has state and the Russian investigative news outfit, Proact has reported that the recordings from this system has been taken off by somebody, apparently from somebody from the security services. And it would be really not difficult to trace who has been entering Navalny's room at that hotel and who has been placed in pockets of water in his hotel room?

NRA Issues F Rating To Bugs Bunny For Tying Up Guns Into Pretzel Shape
"In the wake of new. York. Attorney, General, Latisha James's lawsuit against their organization. The powerful National Rifle Association is clapping back. I. Think I'm using that right? Anyway. The Guns Rights Organization today issued an F rating to bugs bunny for tying up guns into Pretzel Shapes. For more I'm joined by OPR senior alcohol tobacco firearms and explosive correspondent Marcy Hammond mercy. What was the NRA's thinking here while the NRA reserved. The F. rating figures at deems is particularly harmful to the rights of gun owners and leadership believes that bugs his long history of firearm destruction qualifies him. Here's how NRA deputy spokesperson Rhonda mcdaniel. Explain their decision time and time. Again, we have seen this radical agitators seeking to curtail the Second Amendment Rights of Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam by twisting their lawfully purchased firearms into a big bowl and the NRA has had enough. Now let's be clear. Bugs is a beloved cultural figure with relatively little political sway is it really in line with Americans interest for a gun lobby to be targeting him round the NRA certainly thinks. So while the organization has been weakened over the years due to lawsuits and falling public opinion they signal, they'll be devoting considerable resources to getting what they call a no. Good Rascal Rabbit here's mcdaniel. Again, if these sort of left distant imitation tactics prevail, we're looking at a future where government agents can just come to your home while you're sleeping and bend your gun into a youth shape or jammed the barrels with carrots coastal elites like bugs bunny may be okay with that outcome, but real Americans will never stand for it mercy. Some have accused the gun right's organization of not caring about tune rights they pushed for decades to deregulate bazookas. Dynamite sticks coming from the ACME company. That's true. But the NRA would point you to their a rating for Marvin, the Martian. For providing what they call a sterling example of responsible gun ownership. Sure. But do they have any other tactics to push back against what they see boxes anti-gun stance while the F. reading a tactic in and of itself of course. But beyond that NRA leadership announced, they'll be launching a public pressure campaign encouraging members to email and tweet bugs bunny to tell him actions are harming the American way of life. They're also lobbying Congress to remove him from television claiming that he's been brainwashing our nation's children with anti-gun propaganda, and if those tactics are unsuccessful, they have plans to draw big angle on his head. To, imagine that this separating didn't sit very well with everyone. That's certainly true. Leslie several gun control groups have spoken out against the move with MOMS demand action launching a new ancient stinker ad campaign targeting the NRA.

So we don't really know much about their relationship or like I said her what caused her passing not long after Patty died his sister Abigail also lost her husband. So from that point on, James took care of Abigail and her children for the rest of their lives for got married again, this time on December tenth eighteen o five, his bride was Charlotte Van Dien who was twenty at that time. There was another death in the family in May of the following year. James's mother. Margaret died at the age of eighty four when James Charlotte welcomed their first child in September of eighteen o six they named Margarita an honor, the deceased matriarch of the family. James in Charlotte had nine children total. There was Charlotte who died in Childhood Harriet James Junior Robert Bridges Sarah Louisa, Mary, Isabella Thomas Willing, and William. Yet many of those names you will recognize because he often would named people after patrons, mentors, people who were important to him and his family. Fortunes business model as he ran the sail loft in support of his growing family was really progressive. He hired both black and white employees to work in his loft, and there was no separation along race lines and his business flourished for the first nine years so much so that he was sometimes referenced in the press and travelogues as this example of black prosperity in Philadelphia. Of course, ignores the fact that like he was a complete outlier. They kind of used him like, no, you could have the dream fulfilled and it's like well, yes. But one dream like right we're a lot of people not given the the sort of lucky breaks that he had had been the embargo act of eighteen seven really meant that trade came to a standstill.

Though trade continued through Philadelphia as supplies removing inland of business owners just didn't make it through with their livelihood intact James was as one biographer put it luckier or perhaps more prudent than many. He did experience some losses during all of this economic upheaval but he was really careful with his business and he stayed financially stable and he was able to expand his fortunes. Once all of that instability had kind of settled down a little bit. He also weathered a real estate bubble in the city and panic in eighteen nineteen and like his father.

Historical record you're reading and which one any given individual in that family favored although they were black James had an aunt who purchased enslaved people. This was not exactly uncommon in Philadelphia. And other cities in slave labor was so much a part of the cultural and economic norms at the time that almost anyone with any kind of financial stability or wealth was probably involved in enslavement back to the relationship between Robert Bridges and James. Corden bridges even purchased a house in James Thornton's name and he trained to become an expert designer and sailmaker. This was all pretty unusual for a number of reasons other than the ones that we've just mentioned first Ford was the only free. Person Working in the sail loft other black men worked there but they were all enslaved additionally Robert Bridges and his wife Jemima had children of their own and if things had progressed in the usual way, one of the bridges sons would have been the one taking over the family business but that did not happen in seventeen eighty, six bridges promoted jams, Fortin to foreman. And then he was made junior partner and in part this was Robert Bridges who had done very well for himself over the years He had made additional money in private tearing by a purchasing private tearing even though he himself did not ever sale on them. He was kind of Angling for his sons to become merchants and not tradesman he wanted to push them. Up The socioeconomic ladder and so in wishing to advance the position of his children, Robert had created a space where James was the one that was on a path to take over the business one day. But to be clear James was a hard worker he was very good at what he did the time he spent on a C. informed his work with practical knowledge. And experience that even Robert Bridges didn't have and he took on greater and greater responsibility the lofts clients recognize the James Sporting knew what he was talking about all those some accounts of his life include mentioned that he patented a sale management system There are no records to indicate that that was actually the case.

He was a sailmaker by trade that will come up again and he worked for a man named Robert Bridges Bridges was born to Irish parents in the colonies and over time he became quite wealthy in. His business, and so he both employed free black craftsmen. At least we know of Thomas and then later on, we'll talk about his relationship with James but he also had enslaved black people working in his sale oft as well. We also don't have a lot of information on James's Mother Margaret. It's believed that she was in her mid forties James was born and we don't know anything else about her. We don't know whether she was ever enslaved. No biography there yet the background is not there. It's interesting because she lived for quite a while and lived with James, but it was all of her story is pretty much focused on on James's story, and so we don't know what her personal life was like before she became a wife and mother. But as a child James Sometimes accompanied his father when he went to bridges shop to work. In the sail loft and James would have been given assorted tasks, they're like sweeping and sometimes sorting scraps for potential recycling to see if they were big enough to use for a patch, he also made prepared beeswax for the sale makers to run their sewing thread through but eventually young James did learn to so sales and the idea in all of this was that James was going to be. Completely prepared to support himself through stable and lucrative trade. This was all very deliberately done by his father Thomas Thinking about his family's financial stability also went way beyond teaching James Trade. Thomas also took small commissions for himself and when we say small human jobs that involved sales literally small enough that he could work on at home without the benefit of a large loft space to lay out all.

"Investigation brought the witnesses to the conviction review unit they have the case incredibly for five years. It's not exactly clear what happened but one reframe that is throughout the transcripts of. Those interviews is, why didn't you come forward sooner? The Assistant District Attorney assigned to this case just seem very suspicious from the beginning and she gave some of them a really hard time. But she got a lot of this information I mean she went to prisons and she spoke to Jamal Black who's currently incarcerated and he told her that it was say who did the shooting and she also fixated on some inconsistencies that I. Think are not material. The story that was told was coherent each witness corroborated one another the vast majority of the witnesses told them that chase hair was short he cut his hair because he had some kind of skin condition. So just like you'd remember a party because you were throwing up all night, you'd remember that someone had short hair because they thought it was ringworm it's not entirely clear if that's what it was but it was some skin condition that they remembered at his hair was short but they had all this information and honestly I don't know why they dragged their feet and they never came right out and said, we don't believe you. We think he's guilty even after we brought the motion and started the hearing they said to the press you know we're still looking into it or something to that effect. But for some reason, they just were unpersuaded. it's weird I mean look this even inside of a conviction review unit like booklet where we'd like to think that everybody is on top of their game I don't know I can't really explain you have these witnesses who are actually bravely coming forward now. Right and there's lots of them, right? It's not like this is one person. These are people who are. Members of the community who? Not Kids anymore either and and. Also, worthwhile to mention why James His brother Daniel and Tina black junior were unavailable to testify. Tina the young woman who named James in the first place is no longer with us in two thousand, thirteen she died of complications related to the very diabetes kept her from the Party that fateful night back in two thousand four. And Sadly, Daniel James younger brother who put him in a cab that night. Tragically was murdered in two thousand twelve. So now the Brooklyn CR hasn't come to a decision and they still could do something about it if they so choose but you and Susan Epstein, Warren exactly waiting around for that. And that brings us to the hearing we've been referring to for this entire episode. You and Susan filed a four forty motion, which is New York Legalese for emotion to set aside the judgement in September two, thousand eighteen and you to argued for James is actual innocence as well as ineffective assistance of counsel and newly discovered evidence at this hearing in June of two thousand nineteen. Yes we were pretty optimistic going into it. So we had eight witnesses including James. James Went I. As you saw is very intelligent, humble, low keyed, and I think he makes a good impression and he went I and also so they couldn't say oh, of course he said this. He sat through the whole hearing listen to what everyone else said. So he told the story that you heard about leaving because he was intoxicated and then you can mel black came in and one thing about Chanel black. It was really I think very persuasive. He had initially refused to cooperate and sent a letter to Susan saying he ruined my life because he had james had slept with his girlfriend when he was locked up at rikers, he held a grudge and even told me when we were preparing to testify 'cause he has a bad quality I have get it from my father. I can really hold a grudge, but he came in and he told the whole story I volley helped walk James out to the car but then they started to get into a fight about this girlfriend again, he went inside and he met up with Tay the shooter. So he told the whole story about how we got stabbed because his younger brother was involved in the fight and he went over and he heard this guy, say you thought this was over a turnaround he was steps he goes through the whole incident of how the stabbing happened and how the shooting happened and how. It was pay, and then how he told this to the police, we also had the woman who cut his hair who although she didn't remember exactly when she cut it. She did remember that she told him it was breaking off in that. He had to cut it, and that the last time she saw him his hair was short and you had corey hines who was at the party in the bathroom laughing at him as he was throwing up I'm sadly his brother had signed an affidavit saying, I, put him in a cab and send him to his girlfriend's house he was murdered. In two, thousand twelve. So we. Didn't have his him a witness. We had his affidavit and we believe the judge should have allowed that into evidence in he didn't and we had Kenin, Johnson the girlfriend who didn't show up at the second trial, we actually had to do what's called a material witness order to have her arrested to bring in which I really didn't want to do. But she came in even though she was mad at me about that. She got on the stand. So when that happens, they assign an. Attorney to you in the attorney came in and said to the judge she's willing to testify but she's terrified of the family and what came out on the witness stand is that after she testified at the first trial friends and family of the deceased followed her, not just out of the courtroom. But out of the courthouse calling her names threatening her we're GonNa, find out where you live. If we see on the street and it was so bad that James is attorney put her in a cab. Because he was afraid of her having to take public transportation home. So here she is she hasn't seen James since the first trial and she gets on and she essentially says exactly what she testified two years before that she met him matter mother's house he got out of the car he was staggering like stupid wrong kind of how she put it in and threw up and she got a Ginger Ale Eto Dagan, they want to his hand. So she told that entire story the two new witnesses. That I found also particularly compelling one was in the statement by James He refers to be Oh, his real name is Ernest Ernest was one of the promoters and we found him and he was willing to testify and like a few days before he testified we asked him. Well, how is it that you remember he was there and he said because we used to have competition about who had the better waves in our hair so I remember when he came in I was joking about who's waves? So unprompted. He basically said he had short hair at the time. So he said that on the witness stand any also said somebody had thrown up by the bar and he asked the bouncer what happened here and he said Oh you know those two brothers one of them was drunk and I told them they had to leave. So that was information we didn't even know about and. Then lastly, and maybe the most emotionally compelling witness was tainted black senior the mother. So she came in with the canes. She's like crippled by arthritis. She basically was wracked with guilt that she knew her daughter her daughter eventually confessed to her an she went through all this stuff about they got a call one day from rikers in her kids there and she said WHO's at rikers. And they said James said she said Wise James At rikers in one of the sunset ask your daughter. So like she remembered little details like that and then bit by bit her daughter revealed to her that she had set james up in that he was never coming home. And that she was still in love with him. So that was extremely compelling testimony. So that was essentially our case it was like so many people who you know added little bits and pieces to the story and created his really cohesive story about what really happened the nobody bothered to investigate. Then there's another sort of what could be seen as a devastating blow that took place on January. Twenty four, twenty, twenty, sixteen years to the day after play carper was tragically murdered. The judge denied James Davis his wrongful conviction motion in its entirety I remember even at the first sight going Oh. Right what does.

You're this or that. I don't WanNA label.

"The link in the show notes. I'm fascinated that You mentioned earlier like big part of the process of writing is observing is learning to see and as. And is capturing. What makes you go back and if and if you have all these and sort of like constantly observing consolation capturing. What makes you know when? Something you've written down some. You've seen something you. You've observed. needs to be expanded on needs to actually turn into something bigger, or is it just a feeling? You just start building around it and it it. It tells you. A good question I'm not really sure usually, if if it moves from if the carrots is can move easily from one room to another. Then you know that you're you're onto. you struck. You, fire has been struck. how big that fire Burns is depends on how big piece of Pie you're gonNA cut. I always find this always better to cut a small a piece of pies possible. Because there are so many ingredients in that one small piece that you. You know you can. You can pretty much. Guarantee that you're going to be. Two, hundred fifty to three hundred pages and before. Before you know. Look I have plenty of books sitting around not planning, but enough story sitting around that have not been finished. And they haven't been finished because they just don't have the power. Of My. My respect and adoration of the characters and love for the story. and. It's not the wall that I'm able to push against in order to make the story happened there. And I guess really to make the story happening. I mean it's interesting. I feel like that wall has to be there. What you have to write, you know you have to have. You have to really want to let people know about. You want to tell him something. You want to share something with people that helps them. In your merchant, you just want to give away the goods. It's nice that people pay for, but you. You give it away if you could. Kind of preacher. You're kind of. Canterbury kind of. Singing Christie adjust trying to. Get people to listen because. The end result is good if they if they do. They look in the right direction. Yeah, it's interesting because you're I, know we re taught for a heartbeat about the fact that you're teaching music to kids now, also Are you still teaching writing Nyu Yeah Yeah because I'm curious because I'm. I'm fascinated by if somebody comes into a room with you what they're looking for what they think they're looking for what they think they need to actually step into this place of being a writer versus what you really feel matters. While the young right is that I need to nyu really wonderful people first of all I don't teach like honors classes. super-duper writers who are trying to be. You know rightfully super-duper publications or magazines I basically whoever signs up the first people sign up with it. Courses limit are the ones in the class, and then I just make them right. Make them write about themselves and I teach I mostly focused on structure. You know I mean because you can't really unless you can get time and place. Said sent it in your story. Nobody you just blogging. You know no matter how good you are as a writer in terms of. Like. How fashion on the Hundred Yard Dash, a book is a marathon. So you can run hundred yards and beat everybody else, but after hundred yards. I'm just GONNA. I'll be running backwards and I'll go leave you behind because you don't know how to do it. Structure so I talk about structure quite a bit and I make them write. A sentimental and make them right I. Don't talk that much. We little NICI. We read a little bit of Gary. Smith WHO'S A. Wonderful right who's worked for sports illustrated, but he didn't really write about. Sports wrote about life. And then we right, that's it you know and I hear their thoughts about things. But then we must be right about what they know. So I sent him everywhere. Send them all over the city. Send him the seven to get ice cream and cake on some of the Bronx sent him to go see with the said. We're Abbas field was go find a joke. Go get a hacker. Tell us what you see in the barber shop I make them do that. When. They're finished writing red ink, all of the pages of bloody, but the game young people you know they really are. I get a lot of inspiration from. My students at Nyu. Must, be interesting well I. Don't know if you're teaching summer classes days, but if when we come back in the fall, you know. Given the moment that this country is in right now when you step into a room of you know like. People from eighteen to twenty one years old, who really to right and and a big part of your? What you're asking them to do is go out into the world and observe and participate and understand how that comes into the classroom, the conversations in the writing with you. I only teach one course I barely have time to do that and I do it mostly because I just love the kids Manhattan. It gives me so much. Give me so much more than I. Could ever give them. When I think of young people in this country, you know when I think of these kids who meet at Nyu I'm encouraged and I'm inspired. All of this stuff that's been happening lately is just encouraging inspiring for me to witness. I'm delighted that so many young people have taken it upon themselves to to speak on behalf of people who cannot speak into try to write things at a time when so many of them are having such personal difficulty in in such deep personal challenges. Yeah, it's it's it is incredibly powerful to see what's going on and to see so many people rise up and step out and actually say things and acknowledged things and the especially when. People who feel drawn to to deeply observe and then turn that into language that somehow like what you said goes out into the world, and in some way effects, other people, the sort of a powerful place to be, but also a place where I I kind of I wonder if what the sense of responsibility that some people would feel in being the people who try and observe, and then turn that into language that goes into the world, and in some way, affects other people i. don't think that people who who do that sort of thing think that deeply.

"Mean. This takes all the fun out of life. The fact is when you create a novel. You're not creating it. You just following the people you you step into a world that. That's no longer yours and then you get a chance to see these people. Look the hard work is getting the characters to leap out the cup. Draw and start moving around. Once they start moving around. There's no work to be done other than your PGA ability as a craftsman to follow him or her as they go about their lives. True many of the paradigm, the sort of crude outlines of. Characters and plot design in digging King Kong a rooted in my life. Is boy up in a small baptist? Church in New York. But you know. I mean I didn't know these people I. Have you know organised like screw in the deacons. Might says they were proper people with that stuff going on, it's not something that I really was privy to. You know I've heard of it. You know but everybody he is of everything. You don't know what you here's true in a you. Hear rumors about this that and the other. What's important in Deacon King? Kong, and in any good story at least as far as I'm concerned. Is. that. If, the book is really good, you can tell. The writer really loves his or her character's. Rachel Kushner. Loves her characters. You know Lindsey Schreiber, who is probably I mean? I think she's kind of cynical. But she's talented. You know and you know I wish I'd written her books, but she loves her characters I I, don't. I don't agree with a cynicism, but she she understands so yeah, where the book comes from sure rooted in some of that. You know the life that my mother created this that makes sense. Yeah, it's an interesting question. Like why does why would anyone feel? Curious about. What leads somebody like the experience that led some one to create something that deeply moved them i. think my senses edge because we want to know the person better a in my case, you know. The color water was written because I simply didn't know what. But after I wrote it, I had a better idea. Deacon King Kong I really don't know what inspired me to write Honest to Jesus I. Just you know I just was laying in bed in this guy. Popped into my mind. You know, and because people I know. That who are part of the Church especially if you've Mayes, I'm sixty two I, remember back in the day when you know when you went to church. It wasn't like when you went to we went to judge wasn't like a Broadway show. You know like the band played. Now you go to church the big church. The band's playing the drums going. You know and it's all this phone. It's just like solve theater. Is is no real spiritual thing. The whole stereotype of the church. was they going? Jesus. Know people jumping around. That really wasn't how it was. How it was is that it was very quiet. And then some would stand up and they would talk. And then something else is supposed to happen, but someone else got up into his head, a word about something enduring the sick and shut in prayer lissome would stand ABS and don't forget to pray for him, and then he she would talk, and then they they might feel a song. They might start singing and everyone. Just it would strike your heart to and you would sing. And that was the most beautiful thing I used to see that when I was a boy at my mother, and when I saw that with her later on when she described going to churches, a young woman brokenhearted in May complete perfect sense. But you know you never knew where the spirit was coming from, and so the spirit of. The. You can analyze it, but it's like trying to analyze love. You love someone inexplicably great. It's like China described why Frank Sinatra was a great single. White Count Basie. Was One of the greatest bally's the world. He's just hear the music I get it. Yeah, it's so chain. They say that what the one word that I wrote down to myself after reading, it was just one word it was love, and that was the overwhelming feeling I got from it. You sure it was fun. It was like amazing characters like it felt like you were having a blast creating this like there was there was a spirit of joy that was finally three, but at the end of it like the overwhelming experience that I had was one of acceptance and love. Absolutely I mean I feel like Gabriel Garcia Marquez would use the solitude. He had a lot of fun. Until the end I don't know if he had funded. But I had a lot of fun writing this book and and the Good Labor. The GALORE was an escape for me because you know came when I was in the middle of a bribery. Very difficult divorce. My mother died and you know it was an escape for me to get away from you know. The difficulties of my life. King Kong was just. It was just the world I was so happy to be. Part of you know just it's a story that made me happy you know. And That's really kind of what it was. You have a friend of mine who writes who? Basically says he writes because there's something that needs to get out, but also because. Of the way something makes him feel while he's in the process of creation I'm curious whether you feel is at all. When you right whether something that's that's meaningful to you in like it while it's hard work, and and not all it is fun that there's a feeling of being alive when he's actually writing. That he feels, flows into an his palpable eventually, when somebody picks it up, reads or to it, I never thought of it that way as an artist. I, simply do what I can do best in. I can't imagine not writing when a living without words and without music, it would be very difficult for me. And I've been doing it so long now that I don't know how to live. I mean I walk around with the PAD in my pocket. Everywhere. And a pencil everywhere everywhere I go. And No matter what I'm even if I'm cutting the grass. Working with plant, so it doesn't matter wherever I have always have hundreds of notebooks. Laying around my house, really I just can't and I never go back to look at them. You know. I just have these ideas. I write down and I just get it, you know. But I, it's. You have to be a little bit obsessive compulsive when you're a writer..

"I guess that happens early on. You're still in the journalism side of things for a chunkier, but then, but even when I was on the journalism side of things, I always played music. Yeah, I mean I was always taken offline Thursday Friday night and head to gig somewhere. You know I. I was always. Never kept music too far from those always practicing you know, and I did it on the down low I I didn't really talk about it too much. My colleagues want to think I wasn't dedicated to the job you know. What I did do never I. Sometime cells young writers. I would not be hanging around for dinner and coffee, and all the stuff wasting Time Gossiping about whether I would just after the work was done I would go home and I practice. And I find it with music was where have I was Boston DC. I would find out with a final. Who Musicians were who was playing? You know? Ironically. I'd learn more about local news and local events as as a musician I ever learned as a reporter. Nicotine, not truth because you know. When you're reporting you, you're you're stuck. You gotTA. You know you have to put quote. Unquote supposedly must put certain things. And when you when you're musician, you know kicking around you. Oh, you heard this honest checking. See drive the other side of town. It's not there and then yeah, while on this on a saxophone of it. You check him out his keyboard player. You WanNa meet, but he's. He lives over in the singer. She's her cousin just got arrested. You gotta go help her I. Mean you know the stuff that it happens when I was at the post? I remember. I wanted to do a story about the base- Baseball Scout and I saw Ben Bradlee who is the editor of the paper in the hallway. And I went up to you know he was a legend back then. He well, he should have been. And I said to me now WANNA. Go Sia, one of those starbucks baseball scout. He said well. He said, have you talked to Mary? Her dossier was my Yan and she said, go ahead and do it. Mary dollars like the best editor. At in my opinion, she should run the post, but in any case I said I said Mary said go ahead, so he said well, what are you waiting for? He said if I had he said he pointed to the news. He said if I could make everyone in this room. Get up and clear out of here. I would do it right now. He said the news is not here. It's out there. He pointed to the window. And So. That's really what it is. Today you know where we gather news is just. She's terrible. No local news nobody goes out to report while it's happening now. Yes, forced to do it now, but yeah I think we're seeing this just massive new or citizen journalism also sort of like everybody's got a device where the report what's happening in the smallest of the smallest place or or in all the places where? It an maybe a big outlet isn't GonNa send someone nothing wrong with the yeah, now completely agree I mean. I've heard you say something a couple of times in the past about your time they're also which is a journalist becomes cynics, which I'm kind of curious about. Well if you WANNA stay creative. You have to avoid the cynicism that journalism creates. because. John. False! You know it's. It's magnetized toward politics. They kind of go together some in some way they like three fingers of one hand, sweeping the other hand, and you shake hands. Okay with this. That sixteen is with the other forefingers God. Them caught carefully. Because of the cynicism in the blood, and the guts from the first fingers. For six things feed over to the rest of the fingers in your whole hand is bleeding and wounded, and you'll never be able to build a house. That's a horrible metaphor, but my point is that cynicism. is destructive in terms of creativity. And and creativity is what makes one of the things that makes America a very unique and very very great place. so creativity doesn't happen. When you picking a video game about thefts or some other bullshit. It just doesn't happen. Excuse me, it just doesn't happen. You WanNa stay creative. You should read books. Walk the earth. Otherwise never gonNA journalists by comparison do get out and do things, but the level of. Cynicism that you allow into your life as a journalist will. At some point. Simply. Would just pull water on your spark your creative spark. So you have to be careful and that that cynicism dozen happened that rather skepticism can roll in. That's fine. Skepticism is fog. But cynicism is thunder and lightning rain. You just you gotta move. You can move your way through fog and discover great things. When it's raining hard in. He's look shelter, and there goes your story goodbye. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense At some point, you end up. Moving entirely over after your time Washington, post you decide to go all in on the music side for a chunk of time. I'm curious was at a slow building of a feeling like this is the right move, or or was there a moment or event or happening that sort of triggered that decision? I can't remember I think.

You studied music music pretty, much. They are studied music and can quote communications. And I didn't use any of. Well I use it all actually. We had A. Was it last year we had Mitch Albom in the studio and I remember asking him I was like. We got we got talking about writing. Then we got talking about music and he's like man I gotTa. Tell you if I could choose one like I. Forget the writing thing I just would. It would have been music all the way if I could have been a rock star that would have been at. Well you know I think the music is for me personally I. Mean if you'd ask him. When I was twenty five I to said yeah, I wanted to just play jazz the rest of my life, but now I realize that what music did me is what I hope it does for my signs in for my little program running my church, and that is it prepares you for a life of labor and learning and enjoyment. I mean there's nothing more enjoyable than driving down the street and listening to. Sonny rollins or the doors or Beethoven, or or anything. That's beautiful. I mean you know. I was listening to hey. Jackson yes, I mean there's nothing more. Classical than enjoying the first. The highest art form of all which I think music is and so. I think the study it just gives you a great appreciation for for life, and for teamwork of a discipline for the things that are important that help. You do whatever you'd like to whatever you like to do I. Think you know most of the? Most of your great scientists and engineers and architects. Attorneys I. Mean a lot of them have great great experience with music and I think that's mute, so I see music is. You know. I could I could suppose could've gone on to just the life of being a musician, but that wasn't enough. Really because music shouldn't be your life, really life should be life Yeah I. Mean You mentioned The kids you're working with now? I guess a at the Church because that was pretty much. Your I mean the early days for you was really. I guess it was really just a big part of your family. Church music books sounds like you're introducting music side also was sort of A. The church needed people to play. That's true. Yeah, well, you know. We grew up in the church in the Baptist showed that we heard that kind of music growing up and we listened to it at home we didn't have you know I grew up in a time when you listen to records and you know, and you only had a certain number of record, so you listen to whatever was on the radio. And whatever wreckage you had at home and I think it gave you a wider Palette in terms of which you draw on later what I drawn later when I became a musician. because. you had to listen to what everybody else listen to also as opposed to listening to the kind of music that you thought you liked. So but yeah I grew up in. You know in the church when we always listen to music swung hard, you know. That sort of heavy. Hearts swing in one thousand nine hundred. Fifty Nine Thousand Six Gospel. That is really really one part of of the so-called African, American musical experience, but it's it's one of the most popular one of the most affecting and Swedish so. It always made music special to me. I I just can't imagine life without music. I I just can't imagine being a writer. Without having music is part of my. Vocabulary you know. Yeah, I almost wonder I mean when you go back and forth when you're working on something between playing composing and writing all the time. On. Do you feel like that likely? You can feel the sensibilities sort of the two interplay with each other. I don't know I. Just do it to keep from going crazy Ya. You, know you you. Only have so much gas in the tank. When you run these characters on the page with they're running your own on the page and you have to get up. You have to move around, but you don't want to go. It's a coffee shop and Start Gossiping with somebody about nothing, so you sit down the peons out. We're going to listen. I mean writing a music she had this. They are about the process of failing continuously. And, so you just learn to accept failure and you absorb it. And then it pushes you to something that's new and hopefully special at different. So the act of just getting your tail kicked every day by these two are forms that you know in not really as good as. People believe to be at. It helps you live keeps you humble and keeps. You keeps you healthy. No. Yeah. I mean it's. It's interesting, also because SORTA well when I look at The two together and it sounds like from what I. Know Your approach to both. You know it's. It's not about structure. It's not about surly building the outline affiliate it in it's. It's about it's jazz like either way. It's jazz absolutely I. Mean, but you know you have to be careful when you say that because okay I saw bruce springsteen one of my life. Back in the eighties he was the meadowlands and I didn't even WanNa go, you know as as like rock and roll you know man. The concert was four hours and it felt like it was a half along. I mean it was. So good I mean you know Clarence climate? But this was when he was you know. I don't know if you've listened to even know who Bruce Springsteen is now they did they do. I saw him play three years at you know what used to be. The meadowlands also for four hours and my mind was blown. Oh, he's just the bad cat. Ridiculous man so I mean, but my point is that. If if it's right, you just feeling and Bruce springsteen got plenty jazz in his music. I mean you know in a he? Doesn't you know? His jazz isn't supposedly like the most sophisticated? But. There's plenty jazz there. I mean what is Jazz. You know you know as as Louis Armstrong said. You have to ask I really don't know. You know music that brings that moves to the heart. That makes you feel good inside. The gives you hope. And you WanNa hug you a neighbor. That's jazz and Bruce in that regard. Bruce Springsteen is loaded myth because he's you know. He spent his entire career trying to make people see the best part of themselves and others, and that's really that's what jazz should do. That's what any good music should do, and that that includes off alums loans of classical music. so. For Me Jazz and Blues and Gospel have been part of my. DNA might musical DNA. But that doesn't mean that I don't appreciate you.

I started singing everything to him because that was the way to really. Connect with him. That would gain his attention. That would make him laugh that would. Put a spark into everything that we did. I know without a doubt that music is going to be the path forward for fans. In his life. And it's going to evolve over the next couple of years in very I hope, very.

I believe he did get into some trouble and I do believe that in the end it cost him a couple of years. And I'm going to throw one last point at you Shannon remember. He did lose his father. His father was desert on July. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred ninety three so after that Phoenix finals. Forty one nine and six soon. After James His father the story was that he was driving the car. The Lexus that Michael had bought him and it had licensed plaques plates of UNC.

"A Taylor its planes break shot exactly how autobiographical many of his songs are who the Suzanne of fire and rain was and how she died his music might be more confessional in feeling than fact? I mean you could listen to the title track of Sweet Baby James. For most of your life and fully understand the sweetly exhausted deep green and blue emotions it describes without ever knowing that it was an account of James Driving home to North Carolina to meet his nephew his older brother Alex's newborn son also named James her. Maybe that's just me. I mean listen to that song for decades at least once on the very turnpike from stockbridge to Boston that talks about and I definitely understood all the feelings without ever really knowing the story at first American standard seems like something completely different. I mean this is James Taylor singing other people's songs and show tunes hard exactly confessions but look at it this way. American standard is Taylor's first album in five years but hardly his first time playing covers. He's been singing them for a long time. If you don't count his version of the Nineteenth Century Stephen Foster Song Oh Susanna on sweet baby James then you'd have to count his version of Carole. King's you've got a friend on his next album mudslide slim. And then there's his duet with his then wife Carly Simon on Anez and Charlie Fox's Mockingbird in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and his great reworking of the Nineteen Sixty Jimmy Jones. Hit Handyman on. Jt In nineteen seventy seven. I mean he released a whole album called covers in two thousand and eight in the more covers. Ep In two thousand and nine and both of those have a lot of old soul. Aren be and motown songs on them in a way. Those covers our form of autobiography as he explains in break. Shot and talked in depth with me Taylor grew up playing that kind of music alongside his brother. Alex in a band they had called the fabulous corsairs. An American standard tells story in a similar way. These are songs. He grew up hearing. Some were on albums in his parents record collection in North Carolina. Some he heard on family trips to New York City to see Broadway shows a regular of ed organized by his mom. He does a version of Surrey with the fringe on top from Oklahoma on the new album. And it's not even his first time recording a song from Oklahoma more covers starts with a lovely version of. Oh what a beautiful morning has that James Taylor?

"CMG are in VR is a fictional character created by the British journalist and novelist Ian Fleming in nineteen fifty three so I guess I was not aware that he was first in novels before the film's. Yeah yeah he was he he wrote like in Fleming Rhode like two or three books that he wrote Casino Royal and like on Her Majesty's Secret Service and Dr Dr No in some version of that order and and they were kind of like they didn't go anywhere like there's GonNa hit the marketplace and they died and then it it became like I think it was John F. Kennedy interview with Playboy magazine back in the day and John Kennedy was like my favorite books are James His bond books and suddenly became oh well if president screws a lot really likes the books then there must be something going on yeah and then suddenly they became bestsellers. Are you telling me that John F. Kennedy was the first influence her I think so I think tagged up posts read any of the original novel. I read like five or six of them. They're shorter than the movies. They are like crazy misogynist. I mean like that's that is that is they're very much a product of their time in that like James Bond loved Jamaica because Ian Fleming Love Jamaica like you would like he would summer. Are there or winter there or whenever you can go there and so like reading Goldfinger which is all set in Jamaica. You're like oh like it's Kinda Yeah Yeah. I mean like sure we'll go to the Bahamas and that's going to be different but no. It's just like it becomes. He's got like a black lack buddy. WHO's not really a buddy. He's more like a waiter. Slash chauffeur's slash valet and yeah and every woman is kind of disposable you know and it's it is bringing that to the modern era is a challenge. I think is the and you see these James Bond movies as you go you go back and look at the Sean Connery's and they still retain that vestige the jove of old school feelings about masculinity and femininity Daniel Craig and it's like listen. You'RE GONNA have sex with the lady but it's not GonNa be as unfortunate as it had been brass. Yeah it seems like as it moved forward in time it went from the bond girls to the bond girl right. I mean there. There would still be the like does he have to sleep with like three women yes like and there's always like the bond girl who dies early fate his adventure. I'm really motivated. Now that woman now that I can't even remember who she was. She's dead and now revenge must happen and then there's like the good blunt bond girl who managed to survive the adventure so that she can miss the James Bond before the closing credits. That's the way that goes which is not enlightened lightened just a couple of things about Ian Fleming who created him so he was a naval intelligence officer and while working for Britain's naval intelligence elegance division during the Second World War Fleming was involved in planning operation golden eye as we can see where that came from also didn't know at the first bond novel was Casino Royale and that is actually my favorite bond fell really. Have you seen both versions of Casino Royale. Oh I didn't see the original aw Yeah No. The original is weird because it was Daniel Craig. Yeah there is like there's James Bond is played by David. I you think and then there's Jimmy Bond guy played by Woody Allen. Oh Boy Yeah No. This was the whole thing I thought this was going to be when you said Jimmy Bond I thought it was. I thought this was like a man and aqua. Lads is my boss. Jimmy go get him. It's not good okay so casino. Royale dropped the the novel dropped April one thousand nine hundred eighty three so that was the first one that was the first James Bond novel Paul Fleming Ended Up Writing Twelve novels in two short story collections his final to being the man with the golden gun that came out in nineteen sixty. Five and octopussy still wild name. I'd still still wild and the living daylights that came out in nineteen sixty six the he used I used to I think they might still do they would always have premieres of those movies in London. Royal Albert Hall and was always a thing where like the Queen and the prince would come to the screenings screenings because it was a whole like it's it's the biggest character that that ever came out of Britain. Maybe Harry Potter might now be like number two. They might be fighting for number one at some point but it was a national event when a bond movie would come out and so the in Goldfinger they there's a character in Goldfinger named Pussy Galore and so and they were concerned about whether or not they would like. Can we put this movie out with this cartoon. Pussy Galore and then when the Queen saw the movie and then went to like the Broccoli's who produce these movies is good character Pussy Galore. We got the queen to say Pussy Galore and like Octopussy is a name that the queen to say and I remember reading some interview with Daniel Craig being somewhat concerned that the queen who would still go see bond movies by the time you got to casino sooner. Hell is going to watch him. Get bashed in the nuts over and over the queen's watchmen bollocks besmirched in. I remember that scene so I left to the left speaking of James Bond. Can you talk a little bit about his him. His character I mean James Bond is he is a well also that name sorry because that's not his name right John Well. It kind of it kind of is there's there's two theories. The theory is that like every every actor who comes in and plays James Bond is playing the same guy right like is sean connery and minutes. It's George Lazenby and then it's Roger Moore and then it's here's President Pierce Brosnan and then there was Timothy to be Dalton in there for a second. There's just playing the same character as it goes or are. There is the idea of the James Bond codename James Bond is that goes with a double o seven identity like there's there's nine agents have the licensed to kill of which 007 double o seven. James Bond is one of them every time James Bond dies. Somebody else takes that identity and then moves on and does the things we dr who in that way but James Bond is he was an orphan he was raised sort of you know in in in some things feeling luxury but not quite he he joined during the military young age because that's kind of what at least in this world orphan's do rose up the ranks and then was sort of a blunt instrument like he he was never like the spy spy ever. He was never like like I'm gonNA weather's awesome suit and infiltrate zelma shoot a bunch of people maybe punch him in the face a lot recruited into the into the special service which is the double-o section section which there's one guy named 'em who kind of calls all the missions and there's a guy in Cuba whose quartermaster and gives them all of his weapons and doodads and whatever and there was the the executive decorative assistant who is always called Secretary Miss Moneypenny who would always be his sort of like in-house flirtation lady and then he would always he would start on a mission that was kind of not really connected to anything he would go and talk to 'em he get his big mission and then Goff into the world and like Globe Trot- which is a big part of what made those movies especially work because nobody got to travel the sixties and seventies like who's got money to Istanbul or Duchamp Bay or Tokyo were Cairo or or skiing in the Alps and so those movies were vicarious. He is thrilled for people like I've never seen that place. What's Venice like James Bond went events and now I kind of know and so people would go to see those movies like vacation in a weird crazy way. I mean I feel that way now with the with the with millennials now you can travel. We'll know I feel like that is like like the kind of Lake. The core of a lot of art is like you know we often talk about. You know the escapism of it but also just living vicariously league I remember when when I was a when I was a team the there was a game that was called a true crime streets of La and they had all the different La streets treats and I didn't have my driver's license yet so I would like drive around the streets like not solving crimes and all this stuff but just to Magin what it'll be like when I have my driver's driver's license driving around. La Solving cry I saw that more crimes irl than in the but yeah so so there's that that kind of beauty of art of just like seeing these beautiful places an and experiencing them even though you can't physically experience them yeah yeah and the the bond novels especially in the movies sort of after the fashion were aspirational. I think to like a generation of men for good in for ill the good of it is James. Bond really liked dressed well and he lived well liked good food and like it's a weird like Somalia's guide to wine and stuff flick. Those books are all like he's super refined super feet super like you know well. You wouldn't have the fifty four Rothschild before a stake my God what kind of barbarian all you dude like. You're a killer but but and that's that's sort of how it helped. Titans playboy playboy was also very much like here's here's the guy that you kind of WanNa. Be Like you say you should dress. Here's the party should go to. Here's The music you should listen to. Here's the books you should read. here's the women you should want to consort with. If James Bond fit right into their like he he was the the guy you want it to be. that changes over time you know and especially the as is the more diverse a audience gets the less they might want to just be that guy you know. James Bond May or may not eventually actually change with those times because there is no good reason why James Bond if it's going to be played by a bunch of different actors yeah could also be played by a person of color yeah and now that's a that's been the interesting conversation and and we'll I'll I'll save that one because there's stuff about the new one that I definitely want to dig into and you yeah yeah and I definitely want your thoughts on but when we come back we're GonNa talk about you know the Double-o call sign kind of what that means and get all into at that meeting stuff. See you in a bit. Hey Danny. We're pretty busy aren't we. We are two of the busiest people that I know if you it was something that has helped as I started using zap year which kind of automates all my different APPS that I use for my different stuff whether it'd be the emails. The podcast has stuff. They even have a connection for twitch things to which is Pearl Yeah There's one zap that I have where if I get a email with an attachment it automatically adds it to my google drive which is perfect because now I don't have to just go back and search every time I need to find the show doc. It's just waiting for me in Google so it connects. It's all of your business software into one place..
