‘The Real’ host Jeannie Mai exits ‘Dancing With the Stars’ due to health scare
"The really I love her so much. She has just this really, really great energy. And recently, you know, she's one of the stars on dancing with the stars. Not not normally. I don't watch the show, but I do watch it for her because I really like her. But we've got to send her some well wishes get a really, really scary situation. This one I feel like people should hear about because this could potentially happen to them in some sort of way. So basically, Jeannie has to quit dancing with the stars because she had to be rushed into emergency surgery, and it all started off. With this sore throat. And no, this has nothing to do with Cove it she just had a sore throat. And I guess they kind of got you know it heard enough for her to go to the doctor and to see what was going on. After the doctor examined her. He realized that she had a huge, dangerous infection in her throat. It had already closed 60% of her airway big. They said that this was potentially life threatening and that she had to have emergency surgery and had she waited a few days. This could've gone really bad. Her. That's scary, especially when it's something as simple as a sore throat, and especially right now to you and you know, and it's a good thing. She went to go get it checked out, but you could tell she probably thought it a pass. Because if it was like a 60% blockade, you know you kind of think like, Oh, it's just a sort throwed out. Drink something hide. I'll nurse it a little bit, but being that it was life threatening and it could have completely closed up on our you know when they say life threatening and death That's very Siri's. Very serious, but you know she's feeling better. She is he. She came out of emergency surgery. She's going to be healing up. But I do feel bad that she has to quit dancing with the stars. This was her talking about what it actually really meant to her. My parents came here to build an American dream. And I feel like I'm living that dream right now. Maybe on dance with stars is a way for me to express my gratitude to make them proud. And to show me that I could do it. She taught that in Will my parents.

So that was the night the way we share. Well, we wish you well, We love you, Jeannie. Better really know if easy will be by your
Election Day 2020: Rick Davis
"Joining us live is Bloomberg's Rick Davis, partner at Stone Court Capital has run a good number of campaigns, including John McCain's 2008 Rick Again. Thank you so much for joining us. My pleasure. Yeah, The Democrats seem focused on Pennsylvania Joe Biden yesterday back again today, Camilla Harris today saying it be decided they're Biden claims it's his first home. Polling has been good. But now the NBC Marist poll today shows it tightening. Where does this stand? Well, it's on the horse race side. You can't tell, but it's been a very stable election. Even in Pennsylvania, Biden held the lead anywhere from 4 to 10 points, depending on which poll and at what point in this campaign. But that's the nature of this campaign is so unusual is how little has really changed lately. I mean, when you were tracking polls and you're only you know, seeing Ah pointer to tightening or loosening in the course of an election. It shows you a very stable electric. In other words, people have made up their minds and we've seen in the last month. People are voting in record numbers during these early votes, And so my guess is Pennsylvania. I would say. Friends toward Biden because he's never been behind in any public or private survey I've seen, but you know, we're see what happens on Election Day. Yeah, Also Florida I mean, for the most part of Florida Early on, and who knows early eyes? It goes for for Biden. They're saying that it's over. Yeah. If Florida goes for Biden, there's really no way for Donald Trump. To find a path to victory mean Biden start with some of the Trump states that he won before pretty much in Hiss. Calm. Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin. These are all states that Biden is right now tracking an almost 10 in some cases, 12 points. So you take those states away from Donald Trump. And he can't afford to lose those Bay States and the biggest one that he Has in play 29 electoral votes is Florida now have the two things have the pollsters learned anything since 2016 number one and have the Democrats learned anything since 2016 I'll take the last one. First. What the Democrats learned is that they needed to pick their spots as to where they need to win in orderto get the necessary electoral votes and And Hillary Clinton's campaign spread themselves all over states that were completely unnecessary. They had people in Arizona and other places the week before the election thinking we're going to turn Red States blue. What? What Joe Biden has shown is the discipline to park himself. As you said earlier in Pennsylvania, every surrogate he has in the country was in there today. And he's planted a flag. If I win Pennsylvania, I win the presidency and I'm fighting here. And he has Ah, just in just in the past hour in campaigning, talking to young talking to students, saying that they that they are the key. I mean, the Democrats have needed, you know, asking that question to motivate young voters. Michelle Obama's been beating this drum now since Since 2016 the young have to be showing up. Are we seeing that they will Yeah, There are record turnouts bank on Which state you're talking about in Pennsylvania is one of them where under 25 8. Voters are starting to show up in much bigger numbers than they did in 2016. Now whether or not that follows on Election day. These are all the early voters that we can track. But if that follows up on Election Day, the young voters could actually make a big impact on the state like Pennsylvania. OK, let's and and the presidency, of course, is what everybody focuses on the most for very good reason. But But let's let's look at the Senate here. I mean, if you're a Democrat, and you're looking at this, you're saying, Wow, we have a really good shot that this could flip. Yeah, His Senate is ah, Titan. There's no question about that. Republicans have probably five or six states where they have likely swings to the Democratic side, potentially. And they only have one pickup in in in. Ah, Alabama. What is interesting? State toe Watch is Georgia. Not only do you have a Senate race up for grabs, But you have a special election for a senator to Senate seats up in Georgia this year. And Georgia has a funky law where you have to get over 50% of the vote, or you go to a runoff. And at this point, neither one of the incumbent Republicans there look like they're going to be able to get to 50%. So you could have the control. The Senate decided months later in a special election on top of the special elections you already have? Yeah, possibly in in January. Now now vote counting. Of course, you know, we hoped to see something tomorrow probably won't. But the president has said that he may claim victory on on election night anyway, both sides of lawyered up. This could be a mess as well. I don't want to be negative, Bob, but but this could be a mess. Well, The good news is states run their elections and so unless they decide to defer to the president states, which would be extraordinary, right? No, no state Tends to do that voluntarily, then they're going to count at their own pace. In fact, we've never had an election where the actual elections certifications. We're on election night. They always take days later. In order to facilitate all the ballot collection and count all the ballots, And then the state certifies. There's there. It just simply doesn't happen on election night in any election we've ever had. And so I think that most of the states if their discipline and they follow their own rules, they'll pay no attention to the president's protestations. He did this in 2018 during the Florida governor's race where he said, Oh, you know, all the votes were counted, and we ought to just move on. We're Yeah, we're going to have to leave it there. Thank you so much and will watch for you and David and Jeannie. With our special election coverage

"So you've been really candid with your fans overall and I think at least from my perspective in our you know. Few. Minutes chatting like you just seem like such a real person that I ain't even personally relate to. So I, know this is shifting gears a bit but for example, you've talked a lot about your divorce and how it's impacted you and I think a lot of people can relate in the sense that after a break-up, they might feel insecure physically mentally emotionally. So how did you feel after your split and how did you work through those feelings? I hate to say it. You guys are really think this is cliche because it sounds like it is but I did a Lotta Damn self love and self love does come in the form of spas and sit in silence of yourself, but it does require. You to be patient and to be. Open to having a conversation with yourself, and that conversation might be what the hell are you doing. So as soon as you figure out what it is that you want to change, get that all out of your system and then start to ask how do I want to see the situation different what am I willing to do? What am I willing to lose? What am I going to work to gain? These are real questions that you have with yourself in. It's what I had coming out of divorce that I learned to like me I really went through so many transformations I, gained twenty pounds I learned that I was meant malnutrition he myself I had. Low Key eating disorders. So it took. That self-awakening to see that. Then I realized that I had a weird. Filter for men I really realized that I started liking myself so much that I didn't even really. It wasn't about finding the right guy was about being the right woman and being the right person for me and what's crazy is. When you are the right person that you can attract your own south from across the room things start to happen and they start coming. So whether or not you choose today whether or not you choose to take up on that is your thing. But at least you have options because you know you deserve and you worked for that. And you know what you just touched on that I also love is that self talk and like you know sure you have those rough moments, you have those thoughts but don't let that be the end of it. Make sure that you kind of come back out of that and talk to yourself the way that you would your friend because you would not talk to her crazy i. don't talk to yourself crazy, right? Exactly. Also touched upon this but having that realization with your own body and realizing that you weren't engaging in some healthy habits, which is a really big conversation to be openly having especially in Hollywood. So how did you shift the way that you've viewed your own body I really started to learn that stronger is the new sexy. It's not about the sexy. It's not about wearing cutouts. It's not about showing as much skin when you're stronger, you just physically capable of anything and once I started heavy lifting I really I just felt so empowered about seeing the changes in my even it's like a tiny little muscle that I worked for that. I did that myself and I never had that before. Yep speaking on those small muscles popping out I have been working my Michelle Obama. All corentin. Very, proud of my little muscles for women struggling with those same issues. What advice would you give them to get on that road to self love and really feeling confident about the body there in I would say number one start listening more to yourself whether it's I'm tired will then go fixer schedules that you get more sleep for.

"As important to share my story because everybody else in my culture when jacked up things happen to you, you don't talk about it. It is shameful and disgraceful to out your family. So the reason why I wanted to say something is because I was forty at the time when I confronted my mom, it took me thirty years to get that together. That was three years a my life, my relationships, my own depression, my own timing taken from me because of other people's. Negligence. So confronting my mom was not just for her it was actually very little about her it was me. Rectifying clear and correcting myself but also giving some people out there in a scope into what it looks like to confront somebody you love. Yes that's such a hard conversation to have, but it leads to healing like you said. So what advice do you have for people who really want to have a conversation like that but are scared I encourage that person to look forward to getting all of this off their chest in saying whatever it is this this person needs here. I. Would Walk into sitting down with this person by letting them know hey, I want to talk to you about something. And it's something I would delete would appreciate if you just sat and listen and the reason why I'm taking this time to talk to you about it is because I value our relationship and this means a lot to me to get this off my chest. If, that person cares about you then they will sit and listen and that already is their consent that already them saying I want to hear what you have to get off your chest I'm going to be here for you.

"So something we're discussing a lot on this show is that we're experiencing these two pandemics right now, Cova nineteen and systemic racism. I, know that you've spoken out about xenophobia in the early days of the pandemic and you've also been protesting. So what do you believe people should know or take away from this moment that we're all in experiencing I think twenty twenty is a reminder that you don't always have to speak. This is also a time for you to sit back and listen listen to each other and listen to. The experiences of other people listen and learn the things that you didn't learn in school and that said, I'm also having a very reflective moment of learning. What is it genie that you really stand for and how are you going to do something about that and like I said, the first step is not to go out there and make a bunch of noise or to go banging down doors. No. My first step is to sit back and listen as it. Vietnamese. Child of immigrant parents as a woman in an interracial relationship. And as a woman who happens to be a public figure, I have so many things to learn and yet. I. Have so much privileged that I need to understand and I believe that when you understand your privilege. As a tool. You began to harness your power snaps. Look. Yes and it's so interesting what you say that as a black woman. During this time I have been really cognitive kind of navigating that place of privilege yet oppression because the fact of the matter is i. my parents are immigrants but. They brought us up in a household filled with love and we were able to really build this life for ourselves because of my parents. So really navigating that police were like, okay. AM In a position of privilege, but also oppression, how can I use this as a tool for change? So couldn't agree more love that you said that listening right now is key. something else super important right now, and what we talk about a lot is giving and how that is a form of self care and something that I've actively been working on is being more intentional about giving whether that's with my time or my skills and my money, but you have been volunteering and have been open about the experience in. So what has volunteering given you personally? Our. Free time is usually reserved for scrolling on the grab or Yup Yup going out branching in Roselle Day or whatever it is that we there's something wrong with it but our initial thing is to say Oh let's go and actually find some elders that may need some help grocery shopping and let me help them out. Yup again. More and I'm curious to know what are you actually doing right now? How are you giving back? Yeah for me I'm a huge advocate against human trafficking. Human trafficking has now become the second largest form of. Criminal Enterprise and it's crazy that the majority of victims behind human and sex trafficking are women and children.

"This deeply scarred me in more ways than I can understand. I think I'll constantly discovering new ways that that has affected me but yeah. Self awareness is key to me. It's it's my. My. I feel like it's my magic sword. Sliced through anything cut through anything it can sever anything that I don't need or is not purposeful in my life. So being able to listen to my feelings embrace what I'm going through to learn what happens when you've been traumatized at a young age and how can it kind of trickle down to these other motions and other? Issues that you may have I mean that that that is the magic of being able to blossom. So you mentioned your trauma and thank you so much for being vulnerable and sharing that story with us for listeners who maybe are falling for the first time you've been open about your trauma in the past of being molested when you were nine years old by a family member who Babysat you and it led to strange men with your mother Mama. Someone, who is on your youtube channel all the time now. So you both are so sweet together but I know it was hard work to get to where you're relationship is now. So can you tell us how you were able to repair it I believe in my life my secret power has been to own the things I hide before the things I hide own me. That's a big big philosophy to life for me and one of the things that I was hiding for a long time with my disappointment in my mom not being there for me when. I was abused when I was younger and that turned into over independence a rebellion, I've got different news on my body. They went through to be like I don't need you and I don't need to listen anybody else. So for me I found myself continuously. Visiting this. Anger I had at my mom for not being there for me. So I confronted her because I wanted us to own the stuff that we hide, which is about conversation and I actually had that conversation publicly on my youtube I have a youtube series called Hello Hannay and in that if you look for the video why I separated my mom for eight years, that's where I confront my mom. But the great thing is that brought us closer together and it brought me an understanding at the end of the day. Empathy is always going to help you grow more for yourself and Hopefully grow the relationship you're empathizing with. So that was a big important step for my mom and I having that conversation in order to help build that relationship that super powerful. So I love the relationship that you share with us on Youtube Channel She's a lot of fun. I think the whole reason why I'm even sitting here in the USA and not having been sent back to Vietnam Yeah is because I continue making her proud trust when the day comes that I made Mama my mad I ain't going to be here guys you were speaking to the daughter of immigrants I understand.

So honestly, I am so thankful that I do not have to be raising little kids during this time I just can't imagine. So what have you been doing because how old is your little boy now Medina's turning three it's been an adventure I don't know how else to put it. But in this adventure, you're not really going anywhere, right? No, it's an adventure within the four walls of our apartment. So what's it been like like? How do you even manage it I don't some days and some days I do. I had to cut back to part time. So when everything shut down I, just tried to manage the best I could. But it became too much I. was burnt out I was trying to work at night I was trying to work in his nap times and also like switching gears from mom to try and. Write an email or work I can't multitask again if I have a toddler running around in the background running my life like he's the boss, I can hear my in the background saying Mommy's. But yeah, you just Kinda deal with it. Yeah. I have to say in the beginning the only way I made it through, was my coffee in the morning and passing the torch to the wine that I would have to the day. I know you're tired genie as a parent but the thing is, is that when people are tired, they're like, oh, my God the last thing I want to do is go to work but for you, you're like I'm tired I really WanNa go to work yeah. Because I just WANNA. Work without distractions like how many times a day do I have seen running in here and being like me and like L. And he wants to play and like. Hangman. And it's nice. I had review. On some level, but I really just want to focus for an eight. Hour Day Without a distraction and it's because it's really hard to switch gears feel like women are good at multitasking. But this is not one of those scenarios I wanNA parent when I need to parent and I wanna work when I need to work I can't do both at the same time. So. This whole thing about the schools being closed down like New York City like they try to never close the schools down, right? Yeah. So the fact that they did shut down and they shut down all around the country poses a really big challenge because. Not, everybody can set up for remote learning I mean not everybody has Internet. Some kids only get their meals if they're going to school so. It really has been a challenge on a lot of different levels. So you decided that you like all parents you're like, okay I need to talk to other parents and commiserate and think and see how other people are doing it. So you didn't gather a group of parents I guess virtually right? Yeah I did because there's been a slew of articles about the mental load that everybody is dealing with as parents because you're not meant to do both things at once like you can't parent and work full-time that's why childcare exists and none of this was meant to be a long term solution. But I do want to say before we start that even though we have all been affected by the pandemic, all of us participating in today's roundtable have been fortunate enough to still be working in some format. So we're all healthy and we're all grateful for that but we're barely hanging on by threat. So here we go. I want to welcome from Dallas Texas we have. dinty Cabanas. Hi. How are you? Thank you for having me. So glad you're here I have Joe Marvin Tura from Richmond California. For having me and I have to Haida Alencastro from Orlando Florida. Hey thank you. Teeny. Thanks for having me and just the disclaimer everyone knows to hide it and I have actually known each other for like twenty years. So no surprises there little bit. All right. So I just want to quickly go around the virtual room. And tell me about your kids what you do. This is our Sia I am in Dallas. As you said, I have two little girls wind will be ten in three weeks. The other one will be four in two weeks. And I for fulltime digital marketing manager for. Mary. Kay Corporate here in Dallas Great Jomar. Hi I'm Joanna and I'm in Richmond. That's you know the bay area and my little one is turning three months and I teach elementary school. So juggling the new definition of a teacher and first time parent has been very, very interesting adventure. Into Haida. I have two kids. My son is ten years old and my daughter is about to be eight and a few weeks and I am a systems engineer for Lockheed. Martin but I work from home. So I've been A. Since two thousand and five. Okay. So we're going to start from the beginning. I think I mean I don't know about the rest of you but I think we all were kind of like Oh. This is going to be a few weeks we can do this. No big deal, but walk me through personally what? Each of you guys had to go through and like what kind of plan you came up with to get by for the end of the school year. Well for us like all of you we've had to adjust we did not work from home originally We were released for spring break and never came back. We were told we were going to stay. And do you learning and so it was a shock I'm not gonNA live my husband and I freaked out a little bit. But then we had to pivot really quickly. Right what are we going to do? Do we have the right equipment to we have the right setup at the House Both of our kids are in the same school. So that was one good thing because it was need to everybody. So the school they know what they were doing. We know what we're doing the girls were like what's going on? So the ambiguity of it all was really challenging for all of us. But we just started getting a routine down our dining room became our command center. So I would say the first two weeks were horrible I'm not GonNa lie but I think we've all pivoted. Can and so I was pivoting at home I was pivoting at work. And even with myself like how am I going to take time for myself and you know lose it But I'm not allowed I'm sure I'm not a lot. Of. This

He and coach Ron Rivera will find an appropriate nickname and logo going forward. Seattle's Nate Burlison played for the Seahawks and is a host on the NFL network. Just about time about time. There's been a lot of pressure on this organization, not just from the players, the fans but also now we know the sponsors, so This is a sport situation. It's a business situation, but more importantly, it's a humanity situation. So I'm glad that they decided to make the change Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Costas, not a fan of name changes, just a suit political correctness, But the Redskins had to go get yourself a dictionary.

You know my desk and I really thought for sure since I'm not traveling that I would. I would get it taken care of. And I started I was down like a couple of inches of paper bilge that builds up on my desk. I was down a couple inches. Yes, I'm going to see the surface of this desk before before. This virus releases us from its grip, and now it's super building back up again. Yeah Yeah. Yeah, it's frustrating. I! Do want to point out. Somebody has gotten something done. which is that Tony Anita? Hull took the initiative and went and ask our listeners before we recorded this show what they haven't gotten to or have been meaning to get to in their lives. And so with that in mind, I wanNA, bring Tony Anita Hill up to the Mike Tony on double duty this week. We have another thing for you later. What's on, but this one? You don't have to wear a pep blows for what's on the hot sheet. What our listeners saying? They haven't done to okay so Stephanie. Lundgren wrote I moved right before the stay at home order and I thought for sure I'd be completely unpacked and organized by now. I've been working from home, so it's not at all free time, but still. I See Oh Yeah. Oh that's the worst feeling as a person who struggles with OCD not being unpacked. I, have to tell you Stephanie. I think I was in one house for twelve years before I unpacked the last box. There's always a one box. That just has stuff that you probably never should have brought with you from the last place. Just. Couldn't you just couldn't think it and say goodbye, and so you still have it? And just sits around in a box for Twelve Years Until the cats pee in that box. That's usually that's usually what motivates we. We have a similar problem in this household and in some ways. It's worse because we bought this house. I'm going to say eight or nine years ago. and. We were living in an apartment before then and literally three weeks before we were supposed to leave the apartment and moved into. This house a pipe behind. Washing machine in our apartment burst, the whole place flooded dip fire department had to come and because of the water remediation. Process we weren't able to pack up our old apartment to move here. That had to be done by professionals. Wow! I didn't know there was such a thing. And some of those boxes were some. are still in our garage. Things wet, so you have boxes of wet belongings in your. Oh, you got to get those out you can. Boxes of wet belonging like a growth of mold. Bax Airs what you got. No, no, it's not the belongings. Themselves weren't wet. I want to point out that the flooding apartment wasn't like knee deep or anything, but it was A. Damaged the floor and stuff like that. No, that was a big flood I. Remember that I. Remember finding you and Jeannie. In the middle of the apartment in a tiny ship. And the Terni should talk to. Our tour! Wow So. There were professional packers. What does that have to do with the fact that you didn't open the boxes and take the stuff out I mean? Did it matter who put it in the box? Did you guys say to each other? It's not touched that professional packers put it in. No movers, the movers were allowed into put everything into boxes. My point is that because we didn't have time to pack up our own apartment all the crap that we were going to get rid of ended up being transferred to our new house. And you just haven't got around to. Condie, what was what was it? Marie CONDIE ING it. I didn't Murray Condo. It yet Maury Condo. What is it Tony is it? It's Murray Condo.
Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata
"We're here today to talk about our June twenty twenty. Book Club, pick, convenience store, woman by Sayaka Murata translated by Jeannie Taffy, Takamori. Yes, so there's a divisive opinion on this book and I'm like really excited to dive into it. A lot of people were questioning our decision to pick this book as a lighter More I guess not dark read. Okay, but the thing is like our book club. Pick before that was a warrior woman and I. Think were your was darker than convenience store. Women didn't think it was that dark to be having me neither. Get into a little, are we? Are we the Weirdos here for? Okay, so without further ado, let's get into our. Our discussion. We want you start off with the Book Jack. Description Keiko is normal at school and university. People find her odd and her family worries. She will never fit in to make them happy. Keiko takes a job at a newly opened convenience store where she finds peace and purpose in simple daily tasks. But in Keiko Circle just won't do for an unmarried woman to spend her time stacking shelves and Green Tea as the pressure to find a new job or worse, a husband increases. Keiko is forced to take desperate action so the story itself is a slice of life. story about a convenience store worker toll from first person perspective from the main character Keiko and. I guess we can start with just the style of the store because it's very straightforward. Right and that's some so I don't know if you have this information, but is this the style of Sayaka Murata, or is this because of the condition of Keiko are someone who is like atypical? I have not read any of meritas other works because they happened been translated, but from what I've gleaned from interviews like she does have a very deadpan style to her writing. It is very straightforward like you said and a lot of her previous novels because convenience store women, while it's the first novel to be translated in the states. It's also her tenth novel. and. Yeah like that was really surprising to me. But her other novels are they kind of the same same themes like it's about nonconformity in Japanese Society AH take on gender roles and sexuality, and just like Japanese, societal issues on celibacy and a sexuality and. There are two books that have actually like I'm really hoping that they get translated 'cause the premise is. It's so bonkers There's one book called dwindling world I don't know the Japanese title is, but it set in dystopia where all procreation is made artificially and sex between a heterosexual married couple is is considered to be pretty disgusting like they. Oh, yeah, it's. It's not really a taboo, but it's more of like. Is this like Why are you doing that? A better way to like make children like. Why would you go through sex so? That's like a really interesting premise to me and then the other one. which definitely sounds like my jam? It's called sausage in Soussan, and it roughly translate to translates to birth murder, and this is also a dystopia novels and they banned. It's a dystopia novel where? Where a person who gives birth to ten children they they get to lawfully murder another person down. Yeah, right? About a royal. The Battle Royale I want this book to be translated immediately. Into a movie! Speaking speaking of like adapting it to a movie I. Think Convenience Store. Woman would work really well as a Japanese DEALLM. Or even just like a limited series like one of the Japanese. Soap operas or TV, shows are kind of like the BBC were they're pretty like they're short and sweet. Yeah, yeah, well well. The thing is like a convenience store. Women is such a short novel. It's only like. Because of the size of the hardcover book it's IT'S A lot smaller and very very cute. But in the smart in the smaller version, it's like around. Two hundred pages were like two hundred and fifty pages a in like a normal Let letter size paperback. It's like a hundred and fifty pages, so it's more of a novella than an actual novel. But this book was really really popular. It sold six hundred and fifty thousand copies in Japan and it won the Tugela prize.

Thank God you know. We used to really struggle with his lines, but. I. I'm very lucky I'm very lucky, because if I if I learned them the night before or even earlier than that by the time I'm saying them, they're old. They feel they feel fake. You know. It's like an old. I watched this actress. An older actress I was working with once she hardly knew lines at all, but when you end up seeing her on screen, she was always kind of like. An do. She was looking for a line, so she know audience thinks Jesus Height. She's so good looking. She's inside stinking so anyway. It's a big fake.

The amount of time I've spent since Sopranos on various shows going all right. We can make a needle time with my pencil, you know. And just changing and I think backs, and Sopranos was pretty early on in. Maybe all of our careers was all those years ago. I didn't realize how easy it was to memorize because it was just so well written. It was so easy. The words just flowed based on this character that we don't create together doesn't happen like that for the most part. Yeah it's a lot harder memorizing stuff that like functions as exposition rather than just character driven stuff, right on your delivering factual information for the audience. That stuff is harder to memorize. That's much harder and especially since you could be saying it or the guy next to you could be saying. It doesn't matter. It was saying we got to let the audience know. Exhaustion. Do. You have a favorite episode. Wasn't episode that I found incredibly moving. All I remember is.

"jeannie" Discussed on Circle Round
"Off. A rich banker offered to forgive poor grocers debt all the grocer had to do was answer a riddle if the grocer got it right. He wouldn't owe the banker ascent. If you got it wrong. Shell out a whole lot of extra cash cash that neither neither he nor his daughter had. If you remember the bankers riddle you'll recall. He told the grocer to find two things. One five wrapped in paper and to did the tree that makes music. The grocer was positively actively perplexed by this riddle. Be On baffled but his clever daughter is excited the next day she walked over to the bankers enormous mansion at the edge of town. May I help you I believe you can. I'm the Grocer's daughter I've come to pay his debt with these. She held up two boxes. Oh let me guess. Those boxes contain the answers to my riddles. Well there's reform. I can't wait to see what that simple grocer sir came up with all right then I I offer you fire wrapped in paper. The Grocer's daughter reached into one box and pulled out around paper globe inside the globe was a candle which the daughter promptly lit the bright flame lane made the paper globe glimmer and glow. This sir is a paper lantern. It's leftover from my birthday party last month and as you'll see with the candle inside it's none other than fire wrapped in paper. The banker blinked his eyes. That riddle was a piece of cake. I figured I'd go easy on that father of yours. Surely you didn't bring me the other thing I asked for. You mean seen a dead tree that plays music. She opened the other box and pulled out a flute this flute. Thir- was made from bamboo. Trie a bamboo tree that someone had to chop down a chopped down tree is definitely dead. When you say and in this loop definitely plays music would you like to give it a try? The bankers cheeks burned blazing. Red Won't be necessary. Listen Miss you may have solve my riddles. But I should tell you. The rules have changed. Your father goes me so much money. I'm afraid that one silly little riddle simply will not do your have to answer more. The banker expected Grocer's daughter to shudder instead. She smiled answer. More riddles. Say it would be. My pleasure is your Ford. Next week. I will visit your house and when I do I expect three things I you must leave me a as long as the road second. You must as much wine as there is water in the ocean and third. You must raise a pig as heavy as a mountain okay so a clot as long as the road as much wine as there's water in the ocean and pay as heavy as amounting. Is that all that should be more than enough for you. All is see you next week one week later as promised the bank returned to the little house where the grocer and his daughter lived lived. The grocer answered the door with a grin. Come in Sir come in. We've been expecting you. The banker looked around the room. He noticed three things sitting on a rickety table a ruler a set of measuring cups and a weighing scale sir. These vs aren't a three things. Your daughter thinks I want all day. I told her to weave cloth as long as the road owed to make as much wine as there is water in the ocean and to raise a pig. That's heavy as a mountain what crude who then or a ruler measuring cups and as good. Oh they're plenty good. The Grocer's daughter daughter breezed through the door with a gleam in her eye she whilst over to the table and lift up the ruler. Good Sir I will gladly. We've you a cloth as long as the road if you. I measure the road so I know how long the cloth should be next. She picked up the measuring cups. And I will happily make you as much wine as there's water in the ocean if you I measure the ocean so I know how much wine line I should make. Finally she pointed to the scale and I would be delighted to raise a pig. That's as heavy as a mountain if you I weigh the mountain so I know how heavy that page should be. The banker was speechless.

He made his fortune working as a banker he lent. Money to. All the people in town and those townspeople weren't nearly nearly as well off as he was in fact although they worked very hard most of them struggled to make ends meet so they came to the banker for loans loons but there was something very different about the way the banker lent out money. Let's say you borrowed money from the banker if you you couldn't afford to pay him back when you're debt was due he would ask you of riddle. Okay listen up what has three feet. It but can't walk tells you things but can't talk sometimes Benz but is mostly straight and is like a scale will but can't tell your weight if you could solve the riddle is it a yardstick your debt would would be forgiven vert Uis. You don't own me a sense but if you couldn't figure out the bankers riddle If you were totally stumped as it could be I don't know I give up. Then the banker would charge charge you extra a whole lot extra for every day your payment was late and given how tricky the bankers riddles were most of the townspeople. The people were up to their ears in debt and seething with resentment one afternoon. The banker was walking around town collecting on his debts. Your I've got a little house with a tiny front yard or a grocer lived with his daughter. The Grocer's shop hadn't been doing well and the poor man owed the banker anchor a bunch of money. Good Day sir. I'm afraid I can't pay back you loan today. I've been working myself to the bone my daughter too But I just don't have the cash. The pinker arched his eyebrows. You can't pay me back. You say not to worry answer answer my riddle and you'd debt will be forgiven. The grocer was a simple man and had never been big on puzzles. Or Brain. teasers but what else could he do all right. What is the riddle world? This one's more of our quest ast I need you to bring me two things first. Fire wrapped in paper and second a dead a tree that makes music find those two things got deliver them to me by tomorrow. And you won't Oh me a cent but if you can to bring me those two things your debt will breed double no true. The grocer felt his palms. Get clammy fire wrapped in paper a dead tree that makes music. He had absolutely no idea. What the banker was talking about? As soon as the banker was gone. The grocer burst into tears and collapsed on the floor in a heap who before long. The Grocer's daughter arrived home from another slow day at the shop to keep busy. She had given the store a thorough cleaning van. She lost track of time bother bother. Sorry I'm late coming home but I started scrubbing the floors and dusting the shelves. And you would not believe how much I had father. What's wrong? Why are you crying? Oh dodger it's terrible. It's horrible the banker. He came by just now to collect on his debt. I didn't have the money to pay him back so he has to be one of his riddles. Something you should know about the grocer's daughter she she was as clever as clever can be though she never boasted about it like the banker did and when she heard her father mentioned the word riddles. The the witty woman's eyes lit up so the banker asked you one of his riddle. A what was it father. It was impossible is what it was lows but perhaps you can figure it out my dear. You've always been so terrifically clever. So as his riddle the banker anchor asked me to bring him two things first fire wrapped in paper fire wrapped in paper and second they a dead tree that makes music a dead tree. That makes me Zach right if I can find those two things six. We won't. Oh the banker sent but how in the world I ever find them.

Oh and she also grew a tumor on her brain. Stem roughly the size of a pair now she writes about the experience and a new memoir titled Old. When life gives you pairs the healing power of family faith and Funny People Jeannie Gaffe again welcome to the podcast? Thank you so much for having me Ben the genie. I've had your husband Jim on a couple of times and it's just so great to finally have you on because Jim's family life is so essential to his act. I'm excited to get the other half of the dynamic duo here. Let's be honest. You never really know about a family until you get the woman's perspective do you well. I'm hoping that in some of my perspective might shine through a little bit in the the writing but I think that it I am kind of like someone who's used to being behind the scenes so it's it's pretty ironic that it it took a medical crisis to get me out of the shadows US yeah you've written for Jim and in Jim's voice for so many years. What was it like to finally get to write four and as yourself in this book well? It was very new experience for me but it was just kind of something that was so personal. I couldn't be like like you know Jim the time that you had a brain to her. How did you feel but at the same time I mean everything we do? We do it together it. Just this time name was really I had to kind of put together for myself. The chronology of what happened because it just happened so fast and the the next thing I knew I had people approach me wanting to hear the story and I was like I don't even remember what happened didn't and so it was important for me both from a therapeutic like a coping strategy and just sort of make accents of my life to be able to express myself in this way. Let me ask you this genie when you're running for Jim standup specials or co writing a book doc like dad is fat. How do you write in Jim's voice? Is it just that you've been around each other for so long and have so many of the same shared experiences that it sort of becomes innate or what during the the Jim Gaskin show as opposed to when I've been in the background producing the specials shows like tagging gems lines and writing in in point of view for for instance the data's fat. It's not my perspective but I collaborated heavily on their book as Jim. You know I was like and then you would do this or you think this because I understand your voice be as we've been together for so long in the show there was a character named Jeannie Gaffe again and then there was the female perspective so we did have that sort of you know I I had before to have it to present the genie African point of view with the you know the foil to Jim's kind of you know overeating and laziness. Yes and I was kind of the Taipei. who was you know who's more food conscious and mindful about things and so that's a good was a good day Edinburgh Edinburgh sense this was just me and in the book you actually say that you were initially hesitant to marry Jim for fear that you would lose your own identity? Indian just be subsumed into his career from what I can tell. That hasn't really been the case. You two seem to have a terrific working relationship and you've sort of risen together her I mean I think that the the story of our partnership is really you know a whole nother story immunity it could be a a a whole book about the ups and downs of being you know having a huge family and and being separated from each other for extended periods of time when I was and I had the two babies and they all of a sudden. I wasn't traveling with Jim Anymore and I had to take more of a you know a remote producer producer role in a lot of the the collaboration but this this relationship started as artistic collaboration even when we were in two who different worlds so we always collaborated and I think that our work ethic even though they were towards different things were was something that like we saw saw each other and we understood that the works didn't have to be something that drove wage between our relationship that it would be something that we share a relationship show which is very unique kind of difficulty in the beginning in the collaboration is that Jim was is already writing very tight comedy and he had his comic point of view pretty developed and I never was like I want the comedy writing it just sort of happened because he was and this is going to date. You know us how long ago this was but I remember remember one day. He came in to buy apartment. I was my sister was my roommate and she came over and he said you know he had a CD in his hands and he was like rich. Voss produced his own CD. He put out his own CD and he's like. I want to do this too because this is so cool that people people are putting out their own CDs and southern after shows so this is like that's how long ago it was two thousand and one yeah yes it was about two thousand and because I met him around. I didn't meet him in the nineties. I met him in in two thousand in the millennial year so and I said well I think I could probably figure that out so I started to go to his sets with him and he would run his like ten fifty. Minute sat at several different clubs and as I started to put together a sudden set lists for the CD that was producing. I started kind of putting putting some input to him saying when you didn't get the the magic joked with didn't sound like as fresh or whatever and I think you kinda come up with it there. It was a show where you kind of like came up with it in the middle. I started collaborating that way he wasn't like can you write some jokes for me ever he was. He was very very close to the vest he was like yeah. That's I'll take that with a grain of salt. Thanks a lot but when I was kind of directing it that's how the door kind of open for us to start collaborating over the years. It just became co writing yeah because you had been an actress but you weren't really part of the whole New York standup world now and then you started in writing comedy for him. When did it click with you that you kind of realized hey? I'm pretty funny. I can do this. Well you know. I don't know if it has clicked yet. The me because I'M JIM IS I. He's a comic genius. I really believe that but just like like I learned a lot from from Jim because my comedy writing and also I was comedy writing because I wrote for a sketch group. I just didn't read stand up but it's a completely different art form and I'm more of a storyteller like my kind of skill in comedy. Writing is in like long-form stories in gym is a wordsmith so he can. He's economy of of words so he has kind of these big ideas and he has a real. He's a wordsmith of that's the best way I can. I I can put it so he taught me a lot about comedy writing about cutting out some of the fat so basically in my my memoir. That's me you know I'm I'm a storyteller. I go. I write a lot more. It's very funny. I think you sell yourself short if you say that you're quite as funny as you ought to be well. I guess there's stand up. Comedy is a certain type of writing and that's that's different than a memoir. It's like comedy and I mean I know that's really obvious but I'm just saying gyms. Jim has a very tight skill as a stand up comedy writer and he taught me how to ride stand up comedy like I. I'm I might have witty way of expressing herself but but he has the kind of cadence he's very skilled at the the the setup punchline callback back like he's a very precise rhythm g his joke telling and I'm more of a storyteller so that's but then we could collaborate written and I can add details his you know his point of view and he can add make my like rambling more concise Zeiss so it's a pretty cool partnership. Another aspect that I found interesting in this book is the Love Story Between Human Jim I mean I had no idea that Jim had this kind of swagger. He surprisingly smooth dare. I say Romantika tell us about how it was really surprising. It was really Lee surprising because he just had this confidence that I never like he would call me up. I'd be like he would like hi. It's her new boyfriend boyfriend was what what are you talking about. What do you mean my new boyfriend but in a way I kind of liked it the way that he was just kind of like you and I are probably going to get married? Someday is a never be like he had just so much confidence that he just didn't didn't he say that the first time you guys met first time we met and I was yelling at him too. I was like I was telling me as EGOMANIAC because he was like where do I know you're from and I was like you've met me like six times but but it moves in passing but still you still remember somebody I mean for God's sake and I thought that he was trying to be arrogant like you're so forgettable and I was like really and I was re area and he was like we're probably get marrie literally. That was our first meeting. Their first real conversation was him telling me when you get married yeah. Tell Him till like you know F- off so. When did it finally sink in with you that yes? This was the guy that we were meant to be. Where was there a moment? There was a moment there was a moment I actually write about in the book and actually that like love story that that little interlude food in the book was not part of the book that was an essay that I wrote in. I just kind of like one day. I like stuck it in my manuscript and set demanded Edward. She was like Oh. This is interesting off the the story. It's you know it's almost like the pre lewd and I was like yeah but I think that maybe it's the interlude dude you know I it was just a weird place to put it but so the moment was it probably leash should have been right away like you probably should have been the first date like the lunch that we had where I was fighting against liking him so so much and he was fighting against like so much..

"Mean I didn't get it either before I went through. This would be in that tube. It's very claustrophobic yeah and it banks. It's terrifying gang gang gang gang gang gang gang for like three hours and when I had the intimation Bachchan it breathes the breathing tube so you don't feel like you'll get in the air because if you feel when you're in a small space you ask your panicky. You can't breathe against that thing so it's really horrible so when I was in that tube I needed to go out of that tube. Nope I felt like I was GONNA mind right right yeah yeah and then earned it. What I knew was the road and I just started saying the rosary and I went somewhere else. I do that with the serenity prayer if I can't sleep and ready. Prairie is a perfect example sample. Yeah and I'm not even a believer but I do the repetitions but if you get the serenity prayer acknowledging that there's a higher power whether it's universal so powerful love yeah because you can't do it all yourself right now. That's right. I mean yeah. You're acknowledging that you can't do it all yourself. You should think that you can and maybe your higher power is all the other people in the program or whatever urges so I just sort of like that it just what you off the hook with a certain amount of faith. I don't even though they have to define the higher power but it does let you off the hook. People get skip doubt about that. I mean you know what my friend John who saved my life. Neurologist corologis close childhood friend total atheist. He helped me with my faith around radically more than I mean. I'm very happy for all the priests nuns rabbis everyone who came to my side but here one of my friends who's a complete atheists rabbi grab your side. I had I had listen. We have a very diverse set of friends. I mean my I had. My babies is at home okay. I'm a home birth I and my so I had my boys at home and my boys. You'll need to be circumcised and usually usually when you have a baby in the hospital. They segments baby as well so I called my pediatrician and I'm like look. I'm having a boy and he's a home birth. Guy Show my pediatrician. He and I was like what do I do and he's like what you you get them oil and I was like do absolutely do you know he's Jewish right so why interested as despoil who is a female pediatrician moyle rabbi through lesbian you're at a Bris so and she said I'm only GonNa do a press so we have to naming ceremony she goes. I know you're not Jewish but she's like invite your priest whatever so jim and and I had three bristles at our home very traditional virtue ish versus Catholic Catholic priest and a rabbi so we have these relationships my grandmother on my father's side's Jewish. I'm from a mixed background. I am I a very open to multi interfaith dialogue. I have friends who are from atheists to know devout shown thrown Catholic. So how did you help your faith. He Basically I. I called him because we you know so called. People of faith have very little faith when it comes to the I'm speaking for myself and everyone else but when it comes to like the actual moment of life and death so we're we can all be like Oh heaven. Hell you WANNA get to heaven but then when you're like actually like on the verge of desktop WanNa go to heaven. I don't want to die because I don't believe right. No I'm just saying like why a ooh. If you believe that heaven. Is this known Nevada that you're working your life right. Why would you be afraid today so it's like it's the challenge. I just said you know heavy transitions heavy but like let's be honest. We're all like heaven unless we're GONNA die. There were like well not now. I'm not ready yeah so I the night before my surgery. I called him and I said I think having a stroke like I'm just like my whole bodies tingling. I'm like I know I'm GONNA drop dead right before the surgery so after I got all these blessings and faith things and whatever I turned to my scientist friend and I was like why did I call him and he was and he told me Jeanie you have faith. You have your family. You're not gonNa have a stroke you got this far and he gave me this pep talk and it was so generous of him because I here's this kid I mean I don't now but we grew up together. That would mock every step of the way the you know. God thing kid angels. He's funny you know so you'd be like an angel came in and right but if even if I said I changed my mind he'd be like there is no mind the mind is not a real thing like these that kind of heavy John Broderick love him to death. He gave me the most host. He strengthened my faith because he was a don't forget what you believe. You're forgetting what you believe and he gave me this very scientific analysis of a crisis of faith at he's the atheist so I thought that was really interesting interesting an interesting type of empathy yeah and so you survived and you're doing well. Yes and the thing what your throat now is that what's happening with that so so basically as you probably know I was I had a tracheostomy feeding to for a while so when the trick yes me came amount my vocal chord left was so paralyzed so I started to get a series of treatments like steroid injections and things to make it kind of comeback so at my two year anniversary which was like in May they looked at my brain and they said look you are pretty much recovered offered so you still going to have a paralyzed vocal cord. It's not going to come back but there's a surgery that you could do called a pellet pistol are a type one thyroid plastic and Appel. I've gotten I've gotten a few surgeries where they take the good vocal cord and put an implant in it and stick it to the bad vocal cord so they moved together so that was the most recent surgery I had show what you hear. Now is temporary but it you'll see it's OSCE and I might have to have another surgery on my but this is like I can't complain mark. No I mean look at me I could have been I mean they were. Almost a percent sure that my facial nervous gone yeah when people have and that was fine I already you have a husband that for him yeah and you know yeah. It's amazing. It's it's definitely a lot to be grateful for and you're on a boat. You saw the gate of Hell L. You made some choices almost died. I was headed Gel but I don't think you were but but also like I. I can't like I can't imagine you know the sort of because I don't have a family like that but but just to be surrounded by people with that much twelve in that much concern in that much support. He must have really seen a lot of of of who those people were in a way. You probably didn't didn't anticipate or necessarily want to absolutely I saw a side of people especially when I'm not like talking and doing everything it was like a force retreat from like myself and you're completely vulnerable and and and in fragile fragile like totally opposite of how you exist in the world yeah and yet people showed up for you you know. It must have been they probably must've. It's been a learning curve on that. It was amazing because I also had this whole. secret ISM which was MOM ISM so so I had this kind of like an. I didn't know I had it. It's aware I kind of was like well. If you're not a mom not going to get it right right and honestly I was faced with my mom is in the hospital because the people the single people actually could show up more because they'd never never kid home right and I saw because I have a lot of siblings and I saw the siblings that I I thought they don't get it like we with my my kid having siblings we'd always like off. They don't get it. They don't get how easy their life as there is a lot of that Kesse going on but when I saw my non kid having siblings the level of care that they were able to give me it completely said listen. I'm I have a wrong idea here. I'm so grateful I'm so grateful for the amount amount of caregiving you have an I feel bad that in the past I I didn't know you felt that way and I was like well. I did yeah and then so in the gym mm-hmm. Although Jim is look when I started dating Jim in two thousand and he was already thirty. He was in his thirty s maybe thirty three. I don't remember but he was a bachelor. He had everything he didn't. He didn't take care of him but over the past like you don't almost twenty years he's become very accustomed to having someone take care of everything he goes and does his thing but I I mean no. The teachers names right. I know where everyone goes. I have the schedule done. I know who's on the board of the building co OP. I know you know Oh. He doesn't know any of that summer and so when I was taken out I mean I was like being wheeled to the or being like on my computer. Password is as you know the freshdirect password. I was like others just too much like impart and as I was recovering I realized the doing doing everything for people completely robs them of their ability to function mobilizes and so there are two things their control thing. I was over controlling my life and my people and my kids and sickly. She'll be just fine on their own. Yeah that's the biggest you know. That's the biggest fear I t boot camp that I was running right. I think that's part of the the maybe the existential. The central thing you went through with your conversation with God you know is that your biggest fear is that you would be useless yeah if you didn't try to control everything yeah and there was useless and I was like everybody was. Oh Caffeine was fine..

I have like a you know audio neuroma or somewhere in there never today imagine so then there was a lot of phone calls. Jim Got involved. Were calling. Dr Be Listening. Get the results and then I eventually a called my friend who lives in Milwaukee. WHO's neurologist who I grew up with it. I'm like look man. I can't get anyone on the phone.

I have more that one's probably there's. It's been different editions of them. They're all kind of different like I imagine that when you have this kind of like this one yes it is well. I think the ones now they're similar but right there they he changed his up the style a little bit but I'll I'll set you up with one. I have a vintage edition. You do you do the yeah. There's been many different editions so it's very popular around the office good. Where's the office in New York. It's in New York Yeah. This is now this is your office or you and Jim's office began industries yeah. It's called Jimmy Chunga production. Is it Jimmy Johnson productions. Yes it is and you're in your position. There is what the runner of things home my position position yeah yeah. I'm kind of runner. Things and suck picker upper gym socks off under the dusk is just like just take them off and put them next to the dust. Is that the officers the office in your house. It's in our house yeah. It's it's like we have it. It's attached to our house right. You guys have building. Basically we have a apartment on the floor of a building. The same floor is the office and there's a door that goes into our house us like in our house quite as in a room right but you have people working in the office yes so they're they come in the house to the office office door. Okay all right come in the house. How do we don't use the people that I wouldn't trust in house so now what what's going on with your like. I know the book When life gives you pairs which we now have establishes a pear shaped tumor in your head your head not anymore. It's God's got now where where you have written this book it's been how long ago did they remove the thing in. April of two thousand seventeen okay a couple years ago two years years ago. The recovery was pretty bad but the surgery itself was an amazingly success successful but he can see. I am still kind kind of affected by the residual shirt. I know I was sort of surprised but I mean. Let's let's go back because like the last time I can't. I mean I saw you jim back. When I was in New York. We recorded one the two year right and then Jim came in here by himself. I think somewhere along also came here with Jim in your garage Josh. You're in the garage to so you guys have really. I Guess Jim's been on a three times. Maybe a a one time I think I interviewed the two of you whatever America when I was at Air America probably I can't remember where where the two of I remember. It was in New York though right. Do you remember the wrong person to ask. I mean that's I yeah okay jealousy but that's my either way we've met several times usually with Jim and the two of us on the show and then I met you before back in the day in New York at some point that I probably don't remember. Do you remember of course that. I remember what am I remember. I remember seeing you all all the time and remember that you and Jim at this like fake competition going but for a while back in the early two thousands yeah like you were just like these gags to each other all the time yeah. That's what I remember. I in each other's ball mean gaffe again. Yes back when we were kids back in New York yea yeah how like how long when did you meet him. I met Jim in April of two thousand the long long time ago yeah and you were also but you were like. I just wanted to sort of set this 'cause. We've talked about this before but now since I've talked to you. Both it's sort of been established wish that you're not only are you married to Jim but you guys are writing partners. You production partners initially you were. You were performing as well. Initially initially I was on stage doing acting and Jim was stand up and I didn't know anything about standup. Weren't you weren't doing Improv or anything. It was doing Improv. I absolutely NPR I was not in the standard world at all but my parents my path costs with Jim at one of those like shows in New York at like New Boston comedy clubs the head sketch or whatever right but the whole thing was as Jews lived on my block and so he like sort out like a sore thumb right yeah and so I would pass him all Joey White Guy White Guy White guy should I like Appel fan and I would pass him all the time and you know after you you pass all the time like hello hello right and it just not to acknowledge so essentially essentially then I saw him at a stand up club and he was really good. She was really really funny and I was in a sketch group and when I ran into him on the streets I said Hey I saw you your stand up comedian like he was on TV or anything like that but he was like very very clearly a very funny comedian he was doing a little TV by by then two thousand just recorded his half hour comedy central draw that makes sense but I wasn't a you didn't watch him right. It's like I didn't really know the standard like he s we who my favorite comedian wasn't instead of the monty python guys that's good. You know it's like I just wasn't in that world shirt so than I actually told this also in my book so I don't want to give away any spoilers but well. The spoiler is you don't die of cancer. That's the end so anyway. Correct me on. I mean you can tell the story. It's different when you read a story. Intel what I'm saying is that JIM and why we clicked but we started working on each other's things so he at that point got his first Sitcom which was called. Welcome to New York and it was back. You did an appearance on Letterman. His first appearance was the deal with worldwide white pants yes and and they saw him on Letterman and I think Rob Burnett was came up to him afterwards instead. We WanNA do a show. Base your comedy. It was like the dream come true so meanwhile Jim and I you know started dating eight and this happened very early on and it was like I they want me to do acting and I'm not an actor stand up comedian and I said well. I'm an actor so happy happy happy to run through the scenes through and everything so that's started working together and because he's a pretty good actor he's busy and now is your natural natural. I just saw him in that weird one with the the hill people with the Geoghegan's with Walton Goggin the pentecostal the costal. Oh this snake handler yeah yeah. What was that called. Yeah please. I'm sorry you follow. It's called. I liked it. I talked to still quick. Remember Yeah Yeah Okay so you start working together primarily helping him act. Yes what happened was is that rich voss did his CD. He produced his own CD. Rich lost. It rich foster and Jim got rich Voss CD and came to do you think you could help me make one of these for myself. I mean how long ago this was yeah and I said sure I could figure it out here so I started going around with the gym to all the clubs and listen to the set here and making him a seedy so in that I was a producer at the time I produce theater. I produce stuff sure and but you know small time right so because of that. I really got to know his act and I started saying you know this this time. What if you tagged it like this and he was very resistant. You know I just got resistant when you told me that but look very it's a very very insular singular art well. Some cats are like open to it when people tell me things out here and I've used some if someone says you can take it with that. I'll take it I mean now. I know that when someone pitches some chances are you thought of that and have moved on and several versions and sometimes it's a brand new idea but this was more like he was more open to it because I was kind of honing like so basically I'd say last time you said the the manatee achieve this way fear because I was in the audience. They got a bit vaguer reacted so it was that kind of collaboration and and then after like a few years of that it became more like you know how jim like we'll take a subject like baking skin or something and just hammer it for like twenty minutes or so when you have someone else there what else about baking what else about baking what else he's known for hammering food items yes he'll go after like a a a Mug half hour so it that kind of like observation comedy kind of lends itself to kind of back and forth and so the way in for me which was like trying but it was like he was very resistant to me like you know be funny. You should do something about cats like you'd be like I'm good but it was more like within the point of view sure but you're just dating at this point. I mean it's amazing that you know you you you hung in there. He must have really loved you because here's the thing I must really love. Him was like I the first time that he used. One of. My jokes folks here on Craig. Kilborn used to the late late. Show remember that and I kind of. I didn't even really pitch them a joke. I just said the joke I made something up about something and he thought it was funny and he said do you mind if I say that on stage and I'm like I'd love that that'd be great and so the first time he used where my jokes it works and I felt like I had done it it was I never felt that way before so it was it was a mutually beneficial relationships yeah and I realize how amazing felt to be able to write someone else's point of view sure sure instead of just my own point of view well yeah and especially one that you know you. It's so defined in the sense of like you know Gaffe..

I'm happy to be out from under it but like I wake up still wake up groggy still don't feel good and I'm getting doughy because my metabolism shifted and that's why I drift back and also a little depressed I forget that when you're eating like a Chitaun nicotine all day long that gets you keep your dopamine just kinda buzzing just humming along and now without it like I have moments of dark reflection and hours of sadness and and and and and maybe maybe minutes of hopelessness I had some of those before but it just feels like man it there are moments in my in this or Mike. Can I just will my way out out of it. See that's where I would do the nicotine why will your way out of it when you can just keep percolating get that thing get that thing come bubbling. Keep keep it. Keep it going get keep the homegoing now the Hamas not going and getting lardy. Fuck fuck anyway. I'll stick with it. I'm going to try to work with this metabolism that is offered to me. I got an email from a guy. This is why I said this. At the top of the show what the Fuck Alot Jian and end I look man he says dear Mr Mayor and I write you a few steps from the Pantheon in Rome which is also a Catholic Church as I'm listening to you remarks on Italian churches and they're glamorous and monumental deductions a few days ago you remarked on how you're turning. We fascination with water and rocks now and how maybe that's all you need as you spoke spoke. I thought of George Harrison. I believe it is in the Scorsese. Documentary of Harrison were Harrison. Danny says that at some point all George wanted to do was move around outside in his yard here and there sculpting spaces close to natural elemental realities Harrison cast himself ever further from church heritage that he came to think of as too small for him. I feel you are a kindred spirit. In the Great Midwest for Post Midlife rethink that some of us are fortunate to experience but who are your mentors in that rather. I'd love to know to whom you're looking. I believe it was about eight years ago that you gave a shout out to the what the fuck alot jeans more than ever that that probably describes the theology that I do full of equal measures of wonder and disbelief fellow traveler. Tom A professor of religion mind you who were my mentors who are my people. Who Do I look to for my spiritual guidance. I don't have any man. I don't have any but I get it. I get the Zen I get the I get the universal I get the frequencies I get the layers man I get the universal consciousness possibilities. I get the sort if things to transcend serendipity synchronous cities is what I'm talking about. I've investigated that stuff. Sometimes it's proportionate. Sometimes coincidences says are just coincidence is because you are swimming in circles usually in your life you move through the same grids over and over again and the possibility of engaging in serendipitous synchronous. Dick kind of moments you know happens the white explain it. I've always been open to the poetry of things but I've always always been sort of also compelled and driven to the edge of the Pacific northwest. There's some part of my brain. That was sort of programmed. When I lived in Alaska when I was nineteen sixty nine hundred six years old something about the weight of the world that you feel in the sky up there and for some reason I feel some of that when I go to Ireland when when I'm on the beach when there's a certain type of rock I'm not a lane the beach and sweat type of dude. I don't like looking at the flat horizon from a beach with the smell of some black on my face just looking at like look man. Look at all that water it just goes off and you can't see the end of it that does nothing for me but if I'm on the top of a craggy cliff where these green and just breaking water and there's heavy grey skies maybe Christmas in the air. I feel like I can live in that moment forever man. That's just poetry. I got no expectations from any Almighty. I'm no spiritual searcher. I don't go into synagogues or temples our her mosques. You know looking for something I can feel the humming there. I can feel the space. I know why it's electrified. I know what the power of prayer can do and the sort of residue at Leeds on the spaces where it happens. I understand that human beings when they're humbled create a certain kind of juice that that that fills the air with kind of hope. I get all that I'm not looking for that. I don't know if that's communicating or conversing with God but I feel it. I know it you understand what I'm saying. I got no mentors in this shit. I just like standing on a cliff and looking out the craggy rocks in a Chris Day will spots of green behind me. Maybe out have to be too high in the cliff. I could be at the bottom of the quick but just as long as the rocks are there around me and I can see the water and I can see it. You know little rough little crisp a little gray on the skyline. I don't know what it's all about though waters rise in men high water everywhere. It's what Bob Bob said so. That's the trouble but I don't know I'm GonNa get in under the wire to the great unknown.

"Sixties there was a tv show called by dream of jeannie sitcom but there was one particular episode in there were the gal known as genie encountered a guy called the blue gin and she was absolutely petrified so in genie folklore i was wondering was the gym the genie that scared other genies well in engine lower there is a hierarchy and some of it's related to color it said there blue djinn reg in green jan they're different forms some of them are very animal like in their forms that they take in some have a form that we don't even know but yes there is a hierarchy and even an extra systems today for example sometimes a a higher level more powerful djinn is brought in to discipline a lower a so there is some truth to that and i dream of jeannie was it was a lovely program and however the portrayal of of genie is kind of a goofy girl in a bottle went a long way towards cementing jin law in the western culture as something not to be taken seriously that they were silly creatures that really weren't real granted wishes you know they lived in bottles war we're clothing and that's pretty much how they've been treated in in western media you find a much different treatment of them outside of our culture how did they select the individual that they're going to try to possess do whatever they do with there are a variety of reasons why people might be targeted and one is that somehow that person has offended the gym and we certainly find this prevalent in middle eastern belief that you have inadvertently harmed a gen in some way and so it's a revenge thing you know family clan kind of revenge thing you've trust passed on their territory when you should have known better you know that sort of thing sometimes and i found this with the my shadow people research that if people were severely stressed or challenged in life if they were going through really bad periods of health crisis financial crisis relationship crisis that emotional upset and upheaval seem to be able to attract them and it would be temporary thing that.
