Numbers in there so Jackson Beverly Wilga where collectors of vintage photographs and had in their collection a dagger type. Oh you don't say an old photograph taken using a process that involves a silver plate and Mercury Vapor, and his photo was of a young disfigured man. the photograph was believed to be taken in the nineteenth century. The man in the picture was believed that the man had encountered a whales. He was holding Harpoon like object in the image. TIFFANY's face. That was fun. they couple had the image on display in their home for years in December of two thousand and seven, the couple decided to share the image on flicker and titled it a one eyed man with Harpoon super, super creative, so one win was. When did they have it? In their home? Court were the years they had in their home, but they didn't post it till flicker until two thousand seven. Okay, so they decide like a random picture of some random disfigure. Yeah, some people collect mentioned photographs. My Dad is one of those on. This might make him happy. One Flicker user contacted the Combo commenting that the man probably isn't a whaler as he wasn't holding a Harpoon in the picture, was he holding buy outs. Oh, sorry I thought. You said he was holding her. They said it looked like her. so another user saw this picture and said Hey, this might be the only surviving photo of Venus Gauge, not famous gauge. Where's verb? Not Verb just just benny US I. Don't know that name so shown, either. That's why I said. Where's Fergany isn't firm? So, y'all ready to learn about Fini's gauge.

No list of at the age of twenty five Fini's was working as a railroad, foreman and common dish Vermont and on September, thirteenth eighteen, forty eight made a really good attempt at receiving the Darwin Award.

Lines does part of the job required knowledge in geology and trigonometry, so I have a note to me, saying Insert statement about how trig is as useful of the maths, I will say I really liked. trig choke is super. Useful triggers the most Hallo basic addition. Wouldn't just like OPRAH EMMY BE MORE USEFUL THAN TRADE? Because I never took trig and I'm getting along just fine. Your overcompensating at all. No compensation here I come to terms. Okay, so geology and trigonometry so not only did. They have to be pretty clever, but he also had a handle his crew, who was described as a gang of men who basically needed all the. Since they enjoy things brawling shooting and drinking, they sound like sounds like my. Sounds like the type of people that didn't take trig. had good people skills. Though so is crew liked them to blast the area involved not only defendants have to create schematics aware to drill holes that were a couple inches wide, and a few feet deep, but also had to be able to place them along natural joints and rifts in the rock to make the job easier because why work harder than you have to the cracks just like push it a little harder so i. Like my mental health. Hey? Push it just one step further fine, are we? I completely lost what I was going to save. Thirty Oh.

Joe Walsh Takes on the Trump Cult
"I wanNA start sort of in the beginning with you because I think he your trajectory to where we are today is very compelling and also I think there might be something that people can relate to write our story right. So will you tell us a little bit about how you grew up pretty mundane? I mean a big Old Irish Catholic family of nine kids Dad both passed away within the last couple of years. I Love My mom and dad a pretty lovely boring childhood. I was the middle child of nine. I grew up a loan in the family and I knew when you come from a big family. Elissa you fight for your parents attention and so when I look back a lot of the things I've done in life has been to galvanize people to make people stand up and pay attention about things I care about but I loved coming up in a big family. So what were your interests you know? I always in maybe similar to you from the earliest age. I cared about history. I've always been enamoured with American history. I was watching the other night. The first part of the special on the history channel George Washington. I saw it too is wonderful. I WANNA watch the rest of it. I'm convinced I've always kinda believed in reincarnation. I'm convinced I lived at that time really Olisa. I've been obsessed with the revolutionary period for as long as I can remember really. Yeah so how does that manifest itself in your daily life? Do you get deja booze. Do you get I often and I've often ramped of that period. I've been obsessed with books in movies of that period and it's led to my interest in this country the problems in this country where we are now suavely. My interest in history always led me to politics governance so in high school. What was important to you. Are you an athlete at all? I was I mean I was Mr Baseball Basketball football president my senior class all of that but always board a little bit nice school. I was always thinking beyond high school and then when I was in college I was bored and college and think beyond college so I never really felt like I fit in in those slots and you study in college. I was in English major political science minor interesting. Yeah Yeah so you get out of college. You're still in your hometown. Where'd you get a call? I went to a small school in the middle of Iowa called Grinnell College then I transferred to the University of Iowa graduated there. I took time off. I hopped on a greyhound. Bus came out here to become an actor. Didn't 'cause I was lazy ass and I rode my bicycle. Up and down all over California tended bar and just dreamt a lot then went back to I will finally graduated once the acting bug kind of went away and then I spent time in the city of Chicago after I graduated mostly on the south side of Chicago working with low income black white and brown kids on job training and educational at their educational skills. And you were registered Republican. At this time. I've probably been registered Republican my whole life. I've rarely describe myself as a Republican which is odd because I ran for president as a Republican. I've always considered myself sort of libertarian slash conservative. Don't like the word conservative. But I've always felt an obligation to help people who are not as well off as me. I've never anything that that drive came from. Joplin my mom. My Mom was a servant. She was a teacher. She was a a special education teacher. She loved history as well and she just. She instilled in me at least that that was part of why we were here. A big part of why we were here and that combined with my sort of political ethos which is i. Don't want government doing everything for people. I want US doing more for our fellow. Man has always led me toward the helping professions. It's interesting because I think when you think of Libertarian. You don't think of fellow man helping fellow man you think of like someone you know in a cabin who doesn't over them show all by themselves. Who has you know? I think that if more people understood that the libertarian sort of ethos is that and yeah but I think there's so much that is politically misunderstood right now and I think it feeds into exactly what we're seeing right now with this administration but also it's so interesting to me how we've lost sight of the grey areas in life and I don't know if that's because maybe twitter maybe we have these little short bursts of information and were not able to really see nuance right. Like nuances dead total. So we think of Republicans and we think of Libertarians. And we think of Democrats we think of very specific people void of any nuance right. I mean if you are this you have to be this this this and this. I'm wondering when you started to see that happen. I mean my husband when I first met him was a registered. Republican was he. Yeah he was a register and you know a progressive Republican. I don't know if a progressive Republican exists anymore is that what is that but you got. I mean it's better than a regressive Republican which seems to be the way of the party right now. It's a-list issues everything's broken. I mean just step back. We have a horrible human being in the White House. I mean you and I may differ on a lot of issues almost everybody outside of his crazy supporters understand that we have horrible human being in the White House. How the hell did he get there? I think he got there because our political system is just flat out broken. So why should we take you seriously? And I don't know that you should. I hope you look. Let's just be clear from the outset. I announced about five months ago that this former Republican congressman is going to take on a sitting trump sitting president named trial. Nobody JOE in their right mind should think about doing this. Unless you have a really good reason it's easily the most freaking difficult thing I've ever done as you mentioned. I mean I come from a certain place politically most of the people in that world politically. They loved trump. So I've lost my friends I've lost my supporters. I get threats all the time. It's been difficult. The party has tried to whack me every single day. I'm doing it and I got into joe known it would be difficult many things but I'm not dumb. I knew it would be difficult. I thought it was important. I believe unfit so. It's that message that we've led with. Which is I know who I am. I know this isn't going to be easy but that kind. The White House scares the hell out of me. He should scare everybody. And we've led with that message in everything we do. What is the most broken thing that you feel enabled him to become president about the political system? We go into the social aspect. I think there is a lot though is broken in society that allowed for him. I think especially when you talk to his supporter and I know his supporters. Well because they voted for me and they've listened to me on the radio the last seven years they feel like Washington. Dc doesn't give a fuck about them and hasn't for a long time. Republicans and Democrats. They don't care about me. We got like thirty nine different. Genders now everybody Kerry who they WANNA marry. I got people who don't look like me coming across the border and Washington's not listening and so along comes this asshole this demagogue. Who At least gave them the impression that he's paying
The Frame Oscar Special
"Are ready. Let's do it. Welcome to the frame Oscar special from KPCC in Los Angeles. Welcome to the one million breath and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to and the Oscar goes to get anybody. I'M GONNA find you're GONNA give you. Massive snow snowed. Everybody who bought a ticket told somebody to buy a ticket. Thank you I love you if I may be so honored to have all all the female nominees and every category stand with me in this room tonight the actors Maryland you do it everybody else will come on all right all right all right. I'm John Horn host to the frame and joining me is Jacqueline coli editor at Ron Tomatoes Jacqueline. Thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me John so I know we're only a couple seconds in certified fresh so far. I think you're doing great. You're certified fresh and honestly I would say all the best picture nominees are also pretty awesome. It's probably the highest average on the tomato meter of best picture nominees. We've had in a while so I'm excited to talk about these phones. So let's start with probably the top story. I think of this year's Oscar race twenty acting nominees. One person of Color Cynthia Revo who stars as Surrey Tubman and Harriet. Yeah I'M NOT GONNA lie was extremely disappointed. When I watched each array and John Show read out the nominees few weeks ago? But I wasn't surprised actually just wrote an an article rotten tomatoes discussing this when you talk about the ninety two years of the history of the academy. There's only been thirty. Five Black Women nominated and twenty one of them have been for playing a slave a maid or woman in abject poverty it is an alarming and slightly depressing trend. I would say in the academy's Tastes And when you have performances from Octavia. CBS Spencer and loose Alfre woodard clemency. Jaylo in four inch heels giving us all she could for Hustler's and Aquafina further for well. It's really really alarming for you to say to yourself that this is where we are at the state of the academy. I'm going to hope that this year. We can have parasite as a moment if it wins. Best picture that we can say. We're moving forward. But again Cynthia being the only nominee it's It's a bit depressing parasite. I think has a legitimate chance to win the best picture. Oscar Oscar Think Bong Jun ho who directed and Co wrote. It could win director as well if it wins. The top prize the first foreign language movie in Academy History to take that prize. That is important in its own right regardless of the fact that none of its actors were nominated for performing in it. Yeah and it's also again a trend unfortunately with the academy there have been six previous best picture. Nominations from Asian cinema where none of the actors were honored with an acting nomination and unfortunately parasite kept with that trend this year here however We keep a track at our wars leaderboard and rotten tomatoes dot com of all of the winds of all of the films that are in the conversation and parasite has dominated with over a hundred in twenty five wins and to give you sort of a relative idea. The next winds is at seventy one. So parasite has been dominating with critics groups and with these these various guilds so it's poised to maybe take home the top prize but it really depends on the academy's taste and what those nine thousand members feel about the film later in the show. We're GONNA talk talk about the best picture race. We're also going to hear from some of the directors of some of the best picture nominees including Greta. Gerwig made little women was not nominated for best director. Sam Mendes from one thousand nine hundred seventeen and Bon John Hoult from parasite. But we'll start this Oscar party with some leading actresses three of the five nominees in this category had add the particular challenge of playing real people on Screen Cynthia Rio sharply staring and Renee Zellweger. Who Plays Judy Garland in Judy Yukon? There's an audience other ways. It hears you sing my mouth driving. It was judy takes place in the late. One thousand nine hundred sixty judy. Garland's career is floundering. She's struggling with sobriety. She goes to England perform at a London nightclub and Joplin one thing that surprised me. was that renee. Zellweger wasn't convinced that she could actually pull off as part. I wish I think is so crazy. That's Texas girls for you as a Texas girl I can say we're like deprecating on our talent and always like underestimate ourselves but she absolutely murdered murdered this role I remember. I woke up right in early at the tyrod film festival to watch. Her sort of embody. Judy Garland for this role and it was so I would say mesmerizing.
New UK government brings change and uncertainty
"Week's UK general election saw. Boris Johnson. Lead the Conservative Party to its biggest victory in over thirty years instantly the value of the pound and UK case stocks jumped now that election excitement has died down. We take a look at what to expect from the new government here to discuss this with me on George Polka political editor and Adam. Sampson had a foster. Let's start with brexit given them get brexit done John was the Tory campaign slogan will the UK believing the E. U. at the end of January. And what will that actually mean George. Well certainly expectation is that person will leave on the thirty first of January and the brexit done slogan Surf Bars Johnson extremely well in the campaign captured. I think the mood of the country that whether you're on the remain all the leave side of the debate. There was a bit of a sense that the three and a half years of Political Guinea since the referendum result how to redrawn an end and he's now gone native seat majority which squirrel allow him to deliver his withdrawal bill and to complete the first stage. And it's important to stress the first stage of Brexit on the thirty first of January then of course becomes much more uncomplicated and the real negotiation which is about the future relationship with future trading relationship between Britain and the EU and some people predict that will be even harder and potentially messier and the first part so when will Britain finally leave the EU. In that case well we legally leave on the thirty first of January but then the question is at at. What point do we leave the so-called transition period the standstill arrangement where effectively Britain remains part the same issue trading system under the European Court of Justice? And all the rest of it until a final final agreement is in place now. Boris Johnson has said this week that he will leave on the thirty first of December. Twenty twenty come. What May and indeed he's GonNa put legislation or claws into his withdrawal bill? The will make illegal him to seek an extension of the transition period beyond December. Twenty twenty now. Lots of people doubt whether a really serious trade deal negotiated in such a short space of time. I suspect if there is a trade deal in place by that point it will be very thin one mainly covering goods mainly covering things tariffs and quotas but not fully fledged future relationship that we've been promised and then the second question is if boss Johnson's determined have this new relationship in place on the first of January twenty twenty one. Is it practically possible to have all the systems in place including a new custom system. New checks new border posts a new immigration system potentially all within the space of twelve months. I think that makes an heroic assumption about the ability of white small businesses to make that kind of big adaptations short space of time. And could this also be a rocky time for British unity. The SMP in Scotland is pushing for a second referendum on Scottish independence and Northern Ireland's highlands position could become more precarious as it becomes the border between the EU and the UK. Will indeed. I mean that's one of the ironies of this whole brexit process. Assessed that in taking out of the European Union is Boris Johnson unst itching the United Kingdom of course Scotland and Northern Ireland both very strongly to remain part of the European Union. The fact that there's a resentment north of the border in Scotland about Brexit has created a situation where forty eighth out of the fifty nine seats in Scotland went to the Scottish National Party which wants a second independence referendum in Scotland. Boris Johnson said no so far. But it doesn't take that much. Imagination to concede that Scotland could become a bit like Catalonia with with a grievance festering people demanding the right to have another say on their future and in the case of Northern Ireland. Is You mentioned. Schoener the deal that Boris Johnson struck will leave Northern Ireland effectively within the economic space of the European Union in the customs union but name and the single market therefore the border between the mainland of Great Britain and Northern Island. For the first time and again you know people in Northern Ireland we'll be looking to Dublin or Brussels to protect their interests. SARS the economy's concerned rather than London. It's obvious obvious. That's unraveling the unions certain extent. Boris Johnson calls himself the Minister of the Union that so tightly gave himself after became prime minister. But that's going to be a big job for him and number ten to try to keep the Union of the UK together. Also the same even European Union now the conservative manifesto sketched out plans for constitutional institutional change. So what differences. Can we expect to see well a slightly strange page forty eight which is quite slight infamy in In politics where it talks about a whole range of constitutional changes whether it's the future of the House of Lords or the relationship between parliament and the Supreme Court which of of course famously became very heavily involved in British politics in the autumn and stop Boris Johnson closing down parliament's at a crucial moment in the brexit process. So there's lots of unspoken unspoken intent there about doing something about changing the system. If you like and Boris Johnson's chief advisor Dominic Cummings is basically a revolutionary who thinks the British. The system is bust. He thinks that the Brexit vote illustrated the distance that a grown up between many parts of the UK left behind person if you like 'em the elites that run the country whether it's in the media or the courts or the politicians and he wants to turn it on its head now part gets in. This mission is an open question. That's going to be a review of constitutional setup up in the country which will take at least a year. It'll be interesting to see how far postal prepared to go down that route. But certainly there's a real energy and almost revolutionary zeal about the people around Boris Johnson number ten and within government. A new business department and changes to foreign aid are on the cards. What are these going to look like well? That's the other thing that's Dominic Cummings. Mister Johnson's advisor wants to do. He previously worked as an adviser in whites-only thinks that basically the British civil services Pretty hopeless he thinks they they tolerate failure. There's lots of blame passing no reward for imaginative thinking and he wants to turn the British system on its head as well and one of the things that traditionally percents proud of his value has a permanent civil service which carries on doing the job. Even when there's a change of government very different of course to the American system where you have a complete sea change in Washington every four years potentially but Dominic Cummings said in the past. He thinks that's civil. Servants should be fight if they do about Joplin generally for life at the moment and he's also talking about a a big change in the number of government departments. So you mentioned that two of the most interesting ones. One is the idea of folding into the Foreign Office the Department of International Development which has a very big budget thirteen in billion pounds burst Johnson. Things could be better deployed inside. The Foreign Office is part of a wider global Britain foreign policy and business policy on the other one is the idea of turning the business department much bigger department covering international trade for example almost like a department of economic affairs pushing this agenda. That boss Johnson has trying finds a push wealth out of the prosper southeast of the UK out to the North and the Midlands. Now if I can turn to you Adam how has the business community reacted into this conservative. Victory sure so business. Confidence was very very subdued for a while for a year and a half in the run-up to this election over brexit over the gridlock. So I I think. The community breathed a collective sigh of relief. I least that Boris Johnson has a decisive victory. He has a majority he can push things through a lot of business. Leaders leaders reason the phrase clarity on policy that kind of thing it also averts a no deal outcome at least in the short term over the next several months. I think that was all seen as as a positive however I think there are many longer term doubts as far as what this is going to look like George. You mentioned earlier that it's very unclear as to whether there's going to be another cliff edge brexit in in a few months from now so I think well people are cautiously optimistic in the business community at the moment. There's a lot of doubts about what this looks like in the long run. So so what will the new government mean for business. Can we expect to see a tidal wave of investment after Brexit as Boris Johnson has promised so kind of said there there may be a short-term boost in investment. That just been like you said pent up. You know in the months of gridlock and over brexit concerns and it may be that boost growth in the short run as well. Maybe over the next few quarters early next year but again there's a lot of doubt as to what exactly the economy looks like go into the end of next year whether we have a rerun of exactly this drama that we saw over the past few months taking place again and there's just the economic forecast is shrouded in doubt at the moment I would say and what has been the reaction to the election in the markets so the mercury actions been quite interesting sterling. Shot up more than two percent after the exit poll on Thursday. They night a really big rise for a currency like the pound. The next day you K- markets were up substantially especially domestic facing stock so homebuilders her certain banks companies. That were at risk of nationalization from Jeremy Corbin's plans but what we've seen after that is a significant fall back in the pound found in fact the pounds now given up all of its gains from after the election outcome over those doubts about what exactly brexit's going to look like and I think specifically this I did there may be a cliff. Edge Breaks Leumi now at the end of two thousand twenty and Just you know these persistent doubts about what Boris Johnson's political plans will be. We still have uncertainty going forward. It looks like it seems like there's deep uncertainty among investors and business executives. Well thanks George and thank you Adam and thank you for

"joplin" Discussed on Rolling Stone Music Now
"When you read it. As when she kind of in some ways it was inevitable in some ways it wasn't but when she shoots heroin for the first time it's just like Oh that led her down the path that little to me to her death. It's hard to see otherwise. Yeah it's it's a horrible horrible problem problem in lots of her heroes. You know Billie holiday and a lot of the jazz players got into heroin and there was this horrible kind of romantic kind of idea. Yeah about heroin. And of course she really got into it when she did leave big brother and was trying to for the first time. Be A bandleader which takes it's a Lotta work to learn how to instead of being a member of the band to run the band to hire the players to be in charge plus write new songs doing a whole new stall music etc and there was so much pressure She was getting tons of media attention and so she started just kind of going into that blanket of numb numbness of heroin. And Yeah it's so many musicians musicians. I mean look at Eric Clapton. Keith Richards Dwayne Allman. I mean there were so many people from that same period that horribly fell into the same trap and the same time as much as there are things that when you look at it seemed to lead in the direction of while she would have been pretty downcast at that point in her life. There's an awful fight with her mother were mother says I wish he never been born which aches and she was very upset about the death of Jimmy Hendrix which people don't realize that didn't know each other super well well but they had a real sort of affinity for each other tight and so you can say. Oh Jeez you know. Things were bearing down on her at the same time. What actually really happened as you clearly tell us she just had the wrong kind of heroin? She did dose. That was four. What's usually would have? But she had China White. I think a very pure kind of heroin. There was a total axe. Yeah it was kind of like the whole federal thing today and horribly you know Janice had a drinking problem for sure and drinking alcohol. Alcohol is much worse on the voice than drugs heroin so basically she was trying to cut back on the drinking. She loved her band. She loved working with her producer. Paul Rotschild I think she was co-producing record with him. She had a lot yeah Pearl. She had a lot of input and things were going well for her but awfully she was trying Weiner self off the drinking sadly she runs into her dealer at the hotel. She was staying in Los Angeles and she ended up by herself beginning. This really pure dose of China white just had come into the country for the first time it was I think something like eight people. Od that same night that she did on the same heroin so horribly. That's what ended. Her life was just an awful accident and they also didn't have the kind of rehabs they have now. Yes she'd been clean for about four or five months so of course we're tolerance was much lower as well so yeah it was just. She didn't have really a great support system to stay clean some of the people in her life who who had helped her clean up around at that time and again she was by herself. There was no one there to revive her. It was so pure. I don't know maybe they couldn't have who knows but Yeah it's awful and usually she would mainline heroin again. She just relapsed so she was just skin popping so which it's a little bit less of an effect than say the way she had back in the past and her junkie days and this has been today's wrong stone music now. I'm Brian. Hi Holly George. Warren warn author of the excellent new bog orphee Janice life and music. It's task Japan of course and be sure to check that out.

"Which is what we're going to be talking about? Today is Osso two time grammy nominee and the longtime editor of Rolling Stones Book Division and a lot of books came out of that job. He asked over forty bucks over the years from photo books Anthologies of writing from the magazine. Kazini going back to the earliest issues to all kinds of rock and roll reference books the Rolling Stone Encyclopedia Rock and roll album. Guide elsewhere. The history of rock and roll. We did it all. Aw and you wrote biographies of Alex Chilton and Gene Autry. So this is your third biography but this book Janice her life and music is is a real accomplishment I think the highest compliment. I can pay to. It is by the end. I was dreading what was coming as I was was reading the last one hundred two fifty pages and then for the first time. This is someone who died before I was born. I never mourned her until I read this book and after I finished the book I was really really sad for a while. You know. It's her life is in some ways a tragedy in some ways. Not How do you see that. Well yes I mean she. She died way too young. I came to love Janice myself working on this book and interestingly I was alive when she was around down but I was just a wee lassie living North Carolina and basically Pearl posthumous album. That came out in seventy one was the first Janice album that I got and and I didn't know that much about her. As far as her own path her own journey as a musician as an artist. I of course read some books along the way. And she created such a vivid persona this image that I bought hook line and sinker this kind of Blues Mama and this kind of this flash of talent and and energy and then poof she was gone like a comet but going back and learning about her over actually quite a few years going back to when I was out rolling stone and got got to participate in conferences of the Rock Hall of Fame About Janice I decided wow you know there's so much about her I don't know and I really want to understand. Janice the person listen but also Janice the musician because I had never really gotten a sense of that from the other books so luckily for me I got to meet people. Close goes to her her bandmates people that worked with Chet Holmes who took her to San Francisco for the first time back in sixty three before big brother and the Holding Company and I was able to go back and meet friends of hers from High School and Learn about her youth in her evolution as an artist looking to find out about music and things like that that it took her on her journey out of Port Arthur Texas so yes. I'm always sad. I still tear up sometimes when I'm reading my book myself when we lose her but the the thing about genesis is she made a lot of tough decisions and she was fearless and she knew what she was doing. She knew she was taking a lot of risks. So I really do not want her to come across as a victim in my book. I mean. We're the victims because we lost our but she made those choices and you know sadly it was an accidental overdose. That took her out when she was only twenty seven hour. Among the many things I was struck by is the extent to which Janice was pushing pushing boundaries for a young woman in any era but especially her era and it actually reminded me weirdly of ethnic Curtis's recen- in Bio of Lou Reed where you learn. How ahead of the time? He was where people in high school were just like. This guy is insane and it was in some ways very similar because these were people who were literally ahead of their time they were ready to create the next generation the next era but she was already living it although from her perspective perspective. She was a Beatnik so she was in previous era. But what surprised you. Most about how far she pushed it even by the time she was eighteen years old. Yeah it's interesting. You bring up the Lou Reed book by Anthony Curtis Because I did read that book and loved it and I thought there were some real connections and the persona of both Lou Reed and John I mean I think Lou himself was also very much inspired by the beats early on and there was that whole idea of for Janice when she was fourteen years old she read on the road. Jack Kerouac when it was published fifty seven and his whole concept of beat being kind of beaten down you know outsider Outcast but still trying to experience life experience the dark corners of life away from that post World War Two optimistic like you know the white picket fence and everything you know the husband wife and two kids and the dog that kind of idea of life and Janice at such a young age really glommed onto the idea. The beats soon. After that she discovered the blues she.

"Yeah yeah so she really liked to put it out there for people to learn about her heroes house and a lot of them were women is also important to note how many women as you point out were inspired by Janice yeah mix and a million other people from stevie Nicks to Alicia Lisa Keys. I mean that's pretty cool. A wide range of different styles of artists have been inspired by the different facets of Genesis Artistry. Now when you get into genesis drug abuse and her self destructiveness some of it seemed to be powered by a real sort of existential depression. She she called the cosmic blues. Her father had a similar thing he called it. The Saturday night swindle. What was that well? Her Dad was pretty much a fatalist and told told her when she. I was Kinda down and out in San Francisco about sixty four or something like that. Hey look you know in ain't never gonNA get any better you know in Janice. She had that fifties optimal you know you work hard and you get better and then you'll be happy one day and basically his kind of existential show anx was no matter how hard you work. You think you're going to get the Saturday night to go out and have fun. Well guess what that's GonNa suck too you know you're gonNA wake up with a hangover the next day and feel like Shit Shit so Janice realized that no matter how much success she was going to have there's always going to be maybe disappointment loneliness emptiness other holes holes in her soul that you know as much as she wanted to be successful and wanted to be a rockstar. That wasn't gonNA fill that part. So yes she called the Cosmic Osmond Blues on this one of my favorite songs that she wrote Cosmic Blues which is on her first solo album I got to mow cosmic blues again. Mama which came out fifty years ago this year. I can't believe that use a in another moment. That caused dredd when you read it. As when she kind of in some ways it was inevitable in some ways it wasn't but when she shoots heroin for the first time it's just like Oh that led her down the path that little to me to her death. It's hard to see otherwise. Yeah it's it's a horrible horrible problem problem in lots of her heroes. You know Billie holiday and a lot of the jazz players got into heroin and there was this horrible kind of romantic kind of idea. Yeah about heroin. And of course she really got into it when she did leave big brother and was trying to for the first time. Be A bandleader which takes it's a Lotta work to learn how to instead of being a member of the band to run the band to hire the players to be in charge plus write new songs doing a whole new stall music etc and there was so much pressure She was getting tons of media attention and so she started just kind of going into that blanket of numb numbness of heroin. And Yeah it's so many musicians musicians. I mean look at Eric Clapton. Keith Richards Dwayne Allman. I mean there were so many people from that same period that horribly fell into the same trap and the same time as much as there are things that when you look at it seemed to lead in the direction of while she would have been pretty downcast at that point in her life. There's an awful fight with her mother were mother says I wish he never been born which aches and she was very upset about the death of Jimmy Hendrix which people don't realize that didn't know each other super well well but they had a real sort of affinity for each other tight and so you can say. Oh Jeez you know. Things were bearing down on her at the same time. What actually really happened as you clearly tell us she just had the wrong kind of heroin? She did dose. That was four. What's usually would have? But she had China White. I think a very pure kind of heroin. There was a total axe. Yeah it was kind of like the whole federal thing today and horribly you know Janice had a drinking problem for sure and drinking alcohol. Alcohol is much worse on the voice than drugs heroin so basically she was trying to cut back on the drinking. She loved her band. She loved working with her producer..

The beats soon. After that she discovered the blues she discovered some lead belly records. And then after that Bessie Smith they just totally turned her around as far as what music could be now. She grew up at a time when you know the early rock and roll little. Richard Chuck Berry Fats Domino. She heard some amazing music driving around around in you know she was in the Gulf coast area of Texas and they used to call it Doing the triangle going from Port Arthur to Beaumont to orange. Just listen listen to the radio. Smoking cigarettes drinking beer. You know and she was really a fan and she was also a very very curious Korea and wanted to find more this music the lead belly and the Bessie Smith which those records were really hard to find in the nineteen fifties. So she started seeking out that kind of music but but she didn't consider herself a singer. She was born with a beautiful soprano voice that she use in the church choir and the Glee Club and school and everything but it was only after she started trying trying to work with her voice and seeing a different way with more guts and with more rough edges to it fast when she really started to find herself as a singer and she wouldn't have done that. I don't think it hadn't been for like Louis kind of going outside. The norm of what her typical Roth culture was in port. Arthur taxes axis in the nineteen fifties. There's a moment when she for the first time breaks out into the first version of that voice and it was actually imitating. Data is took off. Yes she was. I was really drawn to African American voices and she discovered a no debt or record. Now Oh Donna was trained. I think she was even an opera singer like like Janice she could sing. All different kinds of Music Janice called it her kind of Mule Skinner Blues type of Sand with what Janice was drawn to but again you know this there was so much amazing music going on in that period that part of the country that I think she really glommed onto but she would actually go up to radio stations at night to try to meet the DJ and like find out about the records. And can I get some coffee and stuff like that because she was just obsessed but she thought going to be an artist. She wanted to be a painter. She was quite talented artistically but when she started singing for an audience basically by the time she enrolled at ut for awhile in Austin Texas in nineteen sixty two and started getting that feeling of the audience feedback when she sang performing with this little Combo called the waller our creek boys that really set her on her path to become a performer as well as a singer. And that's one of the things you emphasizes while an interview. She would kind of propagate gate this myth that it was all kind of an accident and she fell into it. There actually was a long period of training and studying that led her to develop her Stalin. Voice Worse yes. She was the perpetual student of music and she was still doing that. You know when she recorded Pearl in nineteen seventy. She never wanted to just kind of stay with one sound or one style of music. She was driven to continually evolve as an artist. Sing different styles of music. Different musical Kohl backing again. She tried to make it early on after she left Austin and sixty three as a blue singer doing some original. She'd already started writing writing songs herself. She learned to play on a harp. She was teaching herself guitar. And so she went out to the Coffee House scene in San Francisco. And actually I rub shoulders with the people like your Macau Conan and Jerry Garcia. Who of course later a few years later they'd all be the king and Queen of the counterculture and Haight Ashbury and all that but She did that for a while so I mean. She was constantly evolving as an artist but also working really hard to and yeah. I totally always bought her myth that she's just like all all about the field. ABC You know and just going out there and do letting it all out and just kind of almost like just kind of came out of her and that was really not the case. It was a lots and lots hardwork and effort on her part that trip to San Francisco. The first one is one of the places where I said. Wow this was an incredibly brave young woman because it was so Outside of the norm for that time and she was taking huge risks and then she did very quickly she ended up. Pretty horrifyingly ended up a very I serious speed at it with terrifying speed. Yeah Yeah it was an actually. Brian believe it or not. That was actually her. Second Time Hitchhiking The San Francisco. She I went when she was eighteen. Eighteen years old hitchhiked. She was living out in Venice. Beach trying to be a beat neck. And so she hitchhiked up to San Cisco when Kinda just hung out checked out the scene and everything and then took the bus back home to Texas but yes when she really went to try to make it. It's hard for us to imagine now because there's such infrastructure now if you want to build audience and go out and perform but here she was all alone. A young woman nowhere to live sleeping on floors sometimes slept on the floor. The Coffee House where she he performed making you know five or six dollars maybe usually pass the hat kind of things and speed was everywhere in North Beach in the summer of that period of the early sixties. And she yeah she fell into that and you know in the beginning she and some of her friends were doing it because it just like taken can pep pills which she had done in college even they were very widely available in those days and then she went from that to methamphetamine and horribly ended up injecting it so she definitely pretty much wrecked yourself at that point and by nineteen sixty five. She had really won a lot of fans with her voice but by then then she was really sidetracked by you know she was down to like eighty eight pounds and had to go back to Austin and oh I went back to Port Arthur and was kind of nursed back to health family and then eventually she ended up performing in Austin again. There's a harrowing moment. When in the early dissolution she fell into? There's a sign up at a club club. I think in San Francisco said do not under any circumstances give money to downs Joplin or something like that which is like Yikes. I mean that shows how far she went so fast and again you have to remember how old she was you know. She was still in her early twenties at this point so she was just this kid she really had for the first time in her life. All these wide open possibilities to just go out there and you'll be beat so She did that and it really scared heard her though she knew how close to death she had come and when she did go back home she totally straightened up. She actually transformed into this taxes. Axes college co ED. Commuting to Lamar Tech in Beaumont Texas wanted to be a sociology major. Fortunately for me she wrote amazing. Oh my my God. These letters that she wrote to this horrible cad conman boyfriend that she had who was supposed theon say she like seventy or eighty letters over about three or four months and they're just so self analytical they're funny they describe her life with her State of mind her family. I mean it's it's literally like I got in her memoirs something getting to read all those letters which were in like a family archive the D.. Allowed you access to know those letters. Yeah she later wrote home to her family a lot when she ran off again and sixty six. She told her parents. She was going to Austin for the weekend. She really moved back to San Francisco so of course they were horrified fight because they thought she was going to end up like she had the first time and so she wrote home a lot of ladder so yes the family shared those with me. These letters thank goodness. The guy the one good thing about him being such a con man horrible guy was that he sold the letters so I was able to find lots of them through some dealers who handle rare manuscripts scripts and letters who very kindly gave me scans to read. I found some on the Internet from other auction houses. Who have them up for sale? And I think the family we had a couple that they had actually purchased over the years so I was able to track down a lot of them and also she wrote letters to some of girlfriends that I was able to track down so luckily luckily she left this amazing paper trail. You had really strikes me that It's going to be a lot harder..
The Care and Feeding of Data Scientists: Recruiting and Hiring Data Scientists
"Hey everyone instead of your regularly scheduled programing with myself a ban This week has special gas Michelangelo. Dr Casino he is the senior the senior director of the Shar vp by my former boss great the scientists ed he and I together Britain and a Riley report that covers a lot of the managerial aspects of do that we thought you would be interested in so Colangelo thank you for joining me again reporter so this week we will talk about how we think about recruiting and interviewing and hiring folks you're listening to a nearby Russians so a little bit sitting here so you have data scientists who you work for you say you're presumably involved or have been involved in recruiting interviewing hiring let's the team I think there's a director and seven folks but I think they're really well have been part is that I started here about two and a half years ago when there was no data science team at all so I I was hired to basically build the team from scratch and so that involved a whole lot of all all this stuff we're about to talk about it tell me a little bit about how you started to break apart into pieces yeah it was really interesting experience because because so as Katie mentioned we worked we worked together before at our previous company our company had its historical origins and the Obama Campaign in two thousand twelve and so we have a lot of like favorable publicity and I would say we didn't have to try very hard to recruit the people like we have a very active top of the funnel We're good luck candidates were just pouring in and so our main job is basically like sifting through those candidates to find the people that were really really good and then convincing them to come come work for us but it wasn't like a demand generation problem When I started here I had almost completely the opposite experience so we had no data science team in place we were known for data science the company as a whole was probably ably like forty or fifty people then there's probably two twenty five now so so we were small and we didn't have a huge name and so the top of our frontal it was like almost completely dry or like the things that were coming into the top of the phone or just sort of garbage and as an asylum topping here so you're gonNA company I do you can shop runner I that would probably be some useful usual context listeners to have yeah so I I started the data science team at shop are Chicago based e commerce company that kind of like to second elevator pitch of what we do that we run across retailer Amazon prime like service for obviously non Amazon Company so we have millions of members and over one hundred retailers are members get free today shipping and returns kind of across that network so my team works with can imagine there's a pretty interesting amount of behavioral data we can collect from across that network and so my team works on building data products on top of all that data cool so yes assembling from the business mental life pretty strong product but you're still Chicago is unhealthy data science teams but I wouldn't say it's the same order that you say that they are worker Boston or some think I think there is healthy competition for what talent is here in my experience so yeah so that's that's a little bit of the environment in which you've found yourself trying to start up this T- yeah the backdrop so actually it was interesting when I started at a shop owner we had just hired a new seat CEO and our headquarters was actually in the bay area and the CEO decided to close the bay area headquarters and move it to Chicago and his which I think is actually born out is that you you know in the bay area the the supply of great engineers great data scientists is quite high but if you're a small fish in a big market and you don't have a name or like you're you're you know you're not on the front page of the newspaper all the time or you're not something like super cool APP that people are using all the time it's very hard to attract really good talent and so his bat was that and we could come to Chicago and get some of the best people in Chicago and actually ended up being in a much better position I think that that's sort of born out but to go back to like the challenge which of hiring the team like a lot of the the issue is that people didn't know who we are and you put job postings out there and you create people how jobs already or they they're on the market for a very short period of time and they're probably just not applying to your job post and so how do you actually go out and recruit and find those most people and I think one of the we talk about a handful of strategies and the report but I essentially like I did two things one was like I drank in insane amounts of coffee like literally anyone that would that would talk to me or anyone that ever sent me an email I wanted to chat I would go and have coffee with them because I think like having network and trying to like build up those connections like matters a lot because I I can tell them a story about like revision about what the team is going to do in in the future that they don't get a job hosting necessarily even if I wrote the job host in Jackie jobless things this is Joplin and it's rare that I see one of the lake really captured I think what it would be like to work somewhere so I I get so much more of an impression flavor from actually the jobs I yeah absolutely so I like head coffees with anyone that would have copy of me I and then the other the other piece was kind of like investing a way to try to get our name out there I guess so one of the things we talked about in the report is like using open source as a tool in your arsenal so actually open source sort of like a silly Jupiter Notebook widget actually very early on in my time here but that got kind of noticed noticed a few places and has hundreds of hub stars and started to get our name out there a little bit and we wrote a couple blog post initially started going to more conferences invents and that actually like slowly started to pay off a little bit so the the first data scientists we hired someone who is I saw was giving a talk at of meet up and a local meet up in town and I sent her an email and I was like hey you're talk like super interesting like would you like to have coffee hiring you're interested and it happened that like she was on the market and she's kind of like ultimately ended up hiring her she was kind of like the foundation of team she's now a manager managing other folks on the team but like a funny thing we one of the other things we talk about the report is Mike is Diversity techniques for recruiting diverse team and and one of the things we mentioned is that large laundry lists of skills in a job posting tend to turn off women and minority candidates more than non women I'm and non minority candidates lots of reasons for that but sort of just a fact and this candidate in particular had seen job hosting and thought she wasn't qualified and didn't apply but then randomly I had center this email and we had coffee and then it turned out she applied and was like amazing so that was just sort of sort of a funny little side story all right but we hired her and then the other person who is our second data scientists with someone who just randomly reach out about coffee and it was like hey I'm dropping out of the PhD program and I'm curious what inch what opportunities are in Chicago we had coffee and ended up hiring her and then slowly kind of built from there her

"One very ambitious from the beginning big brother was kind of this cool you know freaky you know hanging out improvisational band but they were not it was all about feel with them they were not these precise musicians that hi to play every part perfectly every time Janice on the other hand she had that perfectionists mindset when it came to her music she wanted to be the best singer she wanted to be perfect she was the first one in the recording studio and the last one to leave she worked really hard to be as good as she possibly could Dan she was also a restless soul when it came to her music she didn't WanNa stay with just one style when sound of music and also be outing the way she was the Banshee Wail that she developed with Big Brother and the holding company that really was not sustainable that was going to record voice so she wanted to sing with more nuance and and she liked jazz she likes Broadway show tunes You know she wanted to try lots of soul music sick or NB there are a lot of things that she wanted to do that she was worried that big brother and the holding company either couldn't or wouldn't want to do so it be came just a matter of time before she finally did leave the band so she gets a new band the cosmic Blues Ben and so during the period when she's recording with the cosmic blues band and she separated from the ban that she knew so well that she was so close to be brother and the holding company what's happening in her personal life when she was out on the road constantly backed up by what became known as cosmic Blues Band Jan US started turning to heroin as a way to just kind of numb herself from all the pressures and the fear of what was like being a solo artist at that point time in her career again she was still very much a focal point of media articles about her all the time mm-hmm and she had developed this whole you know hard-drinking blues mom image that she had so this was a secret vice of hers that she picked stop unfortunately it was heroin was pretty prevalent. no-one really realized the time and so she gradually got addicted to heroin eighteen sixty nine and she kick heroin before going back to it she tried to kick heroin a few times she finally did almost for good in nineteen seventy right about the time she had put together a new band which became called 'til Boogie band and she she she got off heroin for awhile actually by going to Brazil for Carnival and I mean it's so hard to it was a massive rock star she was hitchhiking around in Brazil for awhile totally cleaned up really love the feeling of being clean and back to her old self again sadly she relapsed when she got back to California and then finally she quit in the spring of nineteen seventy and she stayed off of it for about four five months until tragically she relapsed again while recording Pearl in Los Angeles got a very strong dose very pure like what's happened horribly in recent times with fennel and things like that it was much more pure than she had ever used before and sh- her tolerance was down she was ourself overdosed died October fourth nineteen seventy how does Janis Joplin's music sound different to you now what's really struck me as I dove into genesis music was all the different styles and different announced that she could make her voice I guess I just thought she just kind of started singing chooses full-blown singer and it just came out that way but what I've realized working on the book and doing all the research and listening to tons of music is how she worked with her voice how she would purposefully evolve and change your style and how she could sound so different depending on what the songs were what was and you know also just tax nucle- what she could do just you know things like being able to hit like three notes at once you know just her technical prowess I've learned about and it just didn't wasn't just a natural talent that she had she worked really hard to become that good of a singer but you know it sounds like a journalist asked her about it was like well it's all about feeling it was way more than that for her she really tried to hide that side of hers she didn't want people to know how hard she worked just like she tried to hide the fact that she was a total bookworm and read books all the time I mean when I read the letters that she wrote to her parents that's learned so much about the Real Janice that we didn't know about from just her persona on the image that she created she would write her parents with these rip shins of what it's like you know over dubbing or double tracking her vocals or what the mixing process was like she was getting all technical on all that kind of stuff she was fascinated by the recording process she loved it and then again I realized that she was a real scholar of music she worked hard to find records to analyze the records and that was a big surprise for me to learn how much work she put into it and how long she spent working on this to become the singer that she was Holly George Warren thank you so much for talking with us while this has been so much fun thank you Terry a highly George Warren's new biography of Janice Joplin is called Janice her life and music.

"Holly George Warren Welcome back to fresh air thanks so much for having on me again so why do you why do you and so many others consider Janice Joplin the first woman Rockstar and I presume say Rockstar we're eliminating like rock and roll where we're eliminating girl groups we're talking about like rock rock yes Janice Joplin broke down a lot of barriers come the woman that she was in the nineteen sixties when at that point in time there weren't too many women taking center stage not only onstage in the recording studio but even as as far as a point of media attention and Janice created this incredible image that went along with her amazing vocal ability her talent and also her live performance which was very very different than most of the women that can before for people who I've seen her live or on film or video how is her live performance different what made Janice really different is alive perform summer is that she connected with her audiences by tapping into her deepest feelings and there was this authenticity that came across it wasn't just standing up there singing she was basically emptying out her gods through that amazing voice of hers and touching her audience members like they had never been touched before I've talked to people who saw her back in nineteen sixty six sixty seven and they talk about it does if it was yesterday especially women I think because she was able to express deep down emotions shamed appointments hurts that I think a lot of women in her audience couldn't express themselves and Janice was not only just singing to them she singing for them and I think that kind of deep connection was very very unique that time she was very sexual onstage but as an in the way that you would imagine she wasn't wearing like sexy clothes she wasn't like revealing a lot of her body like onstage so what was it about her that had so much sexual energy in her performances. You can look to two major influences that Janet has had that I think affected her sexuality and the way she expressed it on stage one was of course the Great Bessie Smith whose lyrics China's new by heart she started out singing bessie Smith songs way before we ever saw her these images of her with big brother and the holding company she started performing I see Smith songs in around nineteen sixty three and those kind of lyrics of sexuality of sexual longing sexual betrayal those vary much informed Janice his own songwriting and the songs that she chose to sing the other major influence was Otis redding she was a he huge Otis Fan until the day she died and she got to see him perform live three nights in a row at the fillmore back in nineteen sixty six and it transformed her because he was a very sexual performer and he was able to emit this heat on stage that Janice herself I was able to do through her own Way of manifesting these feelings that she had while seen this these songs and yeah I mean Janice herself she compared singing onstage to having an orgasm she blew some journalist minds when she used that expression that she it was a very sexual experience for her and the world of rock in the late sixties was very much a a male dominated world in the studio and in the Music World do you think that she faced a lot of sexism when she was was a performer in spite of on her way to stardom or or after she reached it Janice was one of the boys she considered herself the boys and she kind of was outside that gender role playing at the time that was pretty much dominant in our culture but it once she was a public figure the press would of course be amazed by her vocals and critics would be talking about what a great singer she was but they were often seagoing out her body parts and talking about her physical appearance in a way that of course you know male singers rock singers were really not getting that kind of attention from the press also she really had to bus down barriers was to be able to have control to do what she wanted to do because she loved being in Big Brother and the Holding Company for example the band with whom she catapults did to fame but she was such a restless of spirit as far as a musician goes she wanted to keep it exploring different sounds different kinds of music and when she did that it was really awful in that the boys club of music critics just Kinda raked over the coals for dropping her band and going on own and they tried to say she was selling out and going Showbiz and I don't think other artists like Eric Clapton who left and plenty of bands too by different sounds I don't think they got that kind of personal attack that Janna Scott one of Joplin's most famous recordings is boil and rain and that was a cover of a song that was written by originally recorded by big Mama Thornton so what's the array behind how Janice Joplin I heard that song or how someone in her band I hear that song and how she decided to record it it is so poetic that Janice breakthrough song would be written by Big Mama Thornton Ball and chain because as a teenager of course who like many who saw elvis us on Ed Sullivan Show Janice loved Elvis loved hound dog but then she went to the length and we don't even know how she did it but somehow she found big Mama original version on of Duke records out of nearby Houston Texas of Hound dog which was very different from Elvis's it was it had a lot got more Heat to it and you know fast forward what ten years later nine hundred sixty six so janice was with big brother and the holding company any big Mama Lo and behold was living in the bay area performing at a Little Club so Janice and her bandmates went down to see her perform and she does this Penn Song Ball and chain they were blown away Janice started writing down the lyrics to the song on a piece of paper they're sitting in the club they went backstage age got to meet Big Mama and literally ask for permission for them to start covering the song and she said sure as long as you don't mess it up now and They did dave gets the drummer used to say they big brother is the song so I thought it would be interesting to hear the big authority recording and the Janice Joplin recording back to back so we can hear something of you know what influence Janice Joplin and how she made it her own so he there's Big Mama Thornton followed by Janice Joplin and both of these recordings were made in nineteen sixty eight.

"Holly George Warren Welcome back to fresh air thanks so much for having me again so what are you why do you and so many others consider Janice Joplin the first woman Rockstar and I presume when we say Rockstar were eliminating like rock and Roll we're we're eliminating like girl groups we're talking about like rock rock yes Janice Joplin broke down a lot of barriers to become the woman that she was in the nineteen sixties when at that point in time there weren't too many women taking center stage not only onstage in the recording studio but even as as far as a point of media attention and Janice created this incredible image that went along I'm with her amazing vocal ability her talent and also her live performance which was very very different than most of the women that came before for people who haven't seen her live or on film or video how is her live performance different what may Janice really different as a live performer is she connected with her audiences by tapping into her deepest feelings and there was this authenticity that came across she wasn't just standing up there singing she was basically emptying out her gods through that amazing voice of hers and touching her audience members like they had never been touched before I've talked to people who saw her back in nineteen sixty six sixty seven and they talk about it as if it was yesterday especially women I think because she was able to express deep down emotions shame disappointments hurts that I think a lot of women her audience couldn't express themselves and Janice was not only just singing to them she was singing for the and I think that kind of deep connection was very very unique that time she's very sexual onstage but it wasn't in the way that you would imagine she wasn't wearing like sexy clothes she wasn't like revealing a lot of her body like onstage so what was it about her that had so much kind of sexual energy in her performances you can look to major influences that Janice had that think affected her sexuality and the way she expressed it on stage one was of course the Great Bessie Smith whose lyrics Janice Newbie heart she started out singing bessie Smith songs way before we ever saw her these images of her with big brother and the holding company she started performing Bessie Smith songs around nineteen sixty three and those kind of lyrics of sexuality of Sexual Longing Sexual Betrayal those very much informed genesis own songwriting and the songs that she chose to sing the other major influence was Otis redding she was a huge fan until the day she died and she got to see him perform live three nights in a row at the fillmore back in nineteen sixty six and it tran is formed her because he was very sexual performer and he was able to emit this heat on stage that Janice herself is able to do through her own way of manifesting these feelings that she had while seeing this these songs and I mean Janice self control she compared singing onstage to having an orgasm she blew some journalists minds when she used that expression but you it was a very sexual experience for her and the world of Rock in the late sixties was very much a a male dominated world in the radio and in the Music World do you think she faced a lot of sexism when she was a Mer in spite of on her way to stardom or after she reached it Janice was one of the boys she considered herself one of the boys and she kind of was outside that gender role playing the time that was pretty much dominant in our culture but that she was a public figure the press would of course be amazed by her vocals and critics would be talking about what a great singer she was they were often seeking out her body parts and talking about her physical appearance in a way that of course you know male singers rock singers really not getting that kind of Attention from the press also she really had to bus down barriers to be able to have control to do what she wanted to do because she loved being in Big Brother and the Holding Company for example the band with whom she catapulted to fame name but she was such a restless of spirit as far as a musician goes she wanted to keep it exploring different sounds different kinds of music and when she did that it was really awful in that the boys club of music critics just kind of raked over the coals for dropping her band and going off on her own and they hard to say she was selling out and going Showbiz and I don't think other artists like Eric Clapton who left and plenty of bands to try different Sam sounds I don't think they got that kind of personal attack that Janna Scott Jess Joplin's music idols include bessie Smith Than Big Mama Thornton other blues and rhythm and blues singers but she was born in Texas in Port Arthur Texas at a time when it was still segregated how is she exposed to black music and how did she find records that she might not have heard on the radio because Janez came of age in the mid fifties fortunately in that golden age of early rock and roll she went nuts over Chuck Berry Little Richard There was some great records that she could listen to driving around they used to call it doing the triangle where she lived port Arthur Texas they would just drive every night from Port Arthur to Beaumont to Orange Texas listening to the radio also Beaumont had some great or NBC station that played black music which Janice loved I mean the great ivory Joe Hunter was from Beaumont so she was fortunately exposed to music like that on the radio and then she discovered lead belly and lead belly just changed her head around the lyrics the sound of his voice you know Janice took her own vocals for granted until she discovered lead belly she just thought Oh anybody can sing soprano like you know she sang in the Church Choir Glee Club but when she heard lead bill elise force she wanted to experiment with roughing up her sound and making it more raw and she was a mimic she could you know she discovered Odeta who had kind of the round tones and she started trying to sing like Oh data on her records but she was mostly inspired by lead belly until she discovered of course betsy Smith and then that was all she wrote one of Janis Joplin's most famous recordings is ball and chain and that was a cover a song that was written by originally recorded by big Mama Thornton so what's the story behind how Janice Joplin I heard that song or how someone in her band I hear that song and how she decided to record it it is so poetic that genesis breaks through song would be written by Big Mama Thornton Ball and chain because as a teenager of course who like many who saw Elvis on Sullivan show Janice loved Elvis is loved hound dog but then she went to the length and we don't even know how she did it but somehow she found big Mama Thornton's original version on of Duke records out of nearby Houston Texas of Hound dog which was very different from Elvis's it was it had a lot more heat to it and fast forward what ten years later nine hundred sixty six or so janice was with big brother and the holding company big Mama Lo and behold was living in the bay area performing at a Little Club so Janice and her bandmates went down to see her perform and she does this self penned Song Ball and chain blown away Janice started writing down the lyrics to the song on a piece of paper they're sitting in the club they went backstage got to meet Big Mama and literally ask for permission for them to start covering that song and she said sure as long as you don't mess it up you know and They did gets the drummer used to say they big brother rised the song so I think big Mama Thornton and Janice Joplin recorded Boylan chain at about the same time be cuss if I'm not mistaken one Janice heard big Mama Thornton Performance Thornton hadn't recorded the song yet that's correct is not available on record and win it I think I did come out it was on a very tiny label I mean at this point big Mama Thornton had her star had kind of fallen as far as the record industry has so the version that most people heard became the version that big brother and the Holding Company did at the Monterey Pop festival in June of nineteen sixty seven which was really their breakthrough performance but they had started doing that song I guess they'd been on it for probably about eight or nine months before they did it at Monterey pop in it kind of gradually evolved as they did it you can hear it on some bootlegs and things like that and here well you know a little bit different but Janice just dug into the phrasing of that song the they slowed way down and it just had this heavy intensity to it that was the perfect vehicle for genesis vocal abilities and also her ability to tax into those deep emotions and let them come through her voice so I thought it'd be interesting to hear the Big Mama Thornton Recording and Janice Joplin recording back to back so we can hear something of you know what influence Janice Joplin and how she made it her own so here's Big Mama Thornton followed by Janice Joplin and both of these recordings we're made in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight girl.

Talking Tech with Richard Smith
"Tech today with my all time favorite guitar player. Richard Smith to just happens to be in California and really interesting guy because he travels seventy percent of the time and believe it or not have guitar will travel in his car from Nashville, and I'm talking to now in California. And the big question is how does one live with technology in the car? And I think it's called an iphone six fund six or whatever the latest one. I've gone. I find six I means everything only I can pretty much do everything on that. There's a certain there's a few things that having a laptop is is beneficial. I can pretty much do everything including Eddie, my website for the most. Adding certain photographs and send things make it a little easier on the laptop but seven probably seventy percent, sixty seventy or eighty percent of the stuff. I can do there's no laptop in your car. There is one in the back of my guitar case. Most of the time. Yeah. But there's not. Yeah. Yeah. That's always laptop in my car. It's too cumbersome to be traveling. Yeah, I find it so easy to do everything on while you're going down the road while my wife is driving not one I'm driving when she's with me. I can work in the cost. She's not, you know, it's just a heavy just playing YouTube on going through the the motion going through the motions of YouTube or I've got music on it. And so it just makes life easy. I've also go XM serious as well. That's that's a must for the car. You realize that I think so. Yeah, I mean, but sometimes I just don't want to hear anything sometimes. I just want to think my own stuff. What a think for myself instead of listening to somebody else coast. The news list of all of the news channels. Gotta gotta listen to all sides of all of that. And let's paint a picture for people because you're in California right now, you'll be leaving here and driving to Utah, New Mexico and Colorado to give gigs. Okay. So you really are the guy in the car what kind of car is this. We have a Toyota RAV four an icy drove out. I started in Nashville we played the Jerry re tribute show on September fifth went up the car. It's you your tar amp iphone six fund San. And and Mike's sim Mike, see, I may be a PI system. If I think I'm going to need it. Suitcase full of clothes cigar box. Those times off to the gate when you just want to just relax and may be has ago. If that's you'll think handle your bookings on the iphone six everything is done by Email for much. Yeah. Everything done by Email of everyone's oh it pretty much everyone's number eight mile or messenger Facebook messenger. I always a little people on social media that just. It's just so it's such a great time. It's such a great time. Every basically if people know you to the whole house concert thing is a big thing. These days is a lot of people doing that. You didn't have to be venue. You just need a roof and some power, and you do a lot of you do a lot of house concerts. I would say maybe forty percent of the gigs. I mean, I'm doing music shops smoke theaters festivals house, concerts. Workshops like this. Go f- clubs functions on it's just knowing. It's no in people, the the mortgage, you do the more people that know, you the more people, you know, in a certain area where you can just say, hey, any chance of a gig on this date. And if that person count, do you call someone else, the more people, you know, the more full your calendar becomes and then you can be the only reason I'm not working all the time is because I've got dogs at home. I'd never see them on. My wife is on on the road with me some of the time. I'd never say Hillary the so it's you just have to make a balance, and I've got a studio back in Nashville as well fifteen years ago when you were making the drive in driving all over the country compare what it's like today with keeping in touch with you versus what it was like back that didn't have a web. So you just have to know you had to know people you had to send out packages of with physical product and physical print. Just you don't need any of that stuff. These days not need any physical stuff. It's it's information that sent and then people could see you on YouTube, Facebook, all kinds of social media. It's just a much easier a much more independent world. The I think there are a lot more independent more independent artists than ever before. They don't even need independent labels fail. The label that just going to people like disk makers imprinting up CDs or even doing that. Just even those that that's outdated. These days people are just doing everything online. Downloads youtube. I mean, it's you need anything. You just need to know people in one gig leads to another to describe yourself. Now, I'm I guess I come from the Chet Atkins. Jerry Reed mull Travis and then kind of studied went down the Django Reinhardt off a little bit of what Brent's doing Oviously a big influence, the bluegrass guys.

Pickle Jar Theory, a powerfull time management tool
"Welcome back to radio show today. We are discussing the longtime known about concept of the pickle jars far as time management goes. And I'm bringing some thoughts to bear that that are really kind of disheartening some way because you know, in the past when I talked about the dry talked by you gotta get the right things in the pickle jar. I but now that I'm over sixty years old. I start thinking about what are the right thing that the stuff that was the right stuff for me when I was twenty it surely different than what it was when I was forty and absolutely different than what it is. Now that I'm sixty these things change. And so I've done shows in the past about, okay, let's dump the rocks out, right? And freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose a quote by Janice Joplin, my dad had another one was it's not what it costs to buy things. What it's cost to keep them to manage them to maintain them. So all these things bring back to the fact that you know, we start to accumulate so much stuff in life house out my garage the other day looking at this so much and I have a twenty car garage. So I have been more we bought the twenty car garage because we could we filled our three car garage completely full with stop. And we wanted to be able to pull cars in the garage. So we got a twenty car garage now, but the twenty car garage just allowed me to accumulate twenty more cars garbage out of my garage. Same thing with our house. I mean, Melissa just keeps accumulating crap in the house. She buys more furniture, more stuff more trinkets. And I was thinking the other day going. What would it take? You know, what if I died? I'd get revolved stuff. Where would it all go? You know, nobody wants this stuff. Stuff that we thought important us. Nobody else thinks it's important. Nobody want this crap. And what it becomes an it's interesting because he had to bring a made into clean how she got to bring in a landscaping company to demo- the yard. You gotta bring another again landscaping company did to the trees, you gotta bring in another guy maintained the, fountains and other guy maintains the ponds and other company maintains the pool, and I think in may. Look at all this stuff. That's in this pickle jar just mind boggling and sit back, and you think. Just dump all this stuff out. Should I regret that too? Just living small home without very much stuff. Because you know, what are you actually do with all that stuff? You don't really use? It. You can't use. There's not enough hours in the day. There's not enough time in the pickle jar to use all this stuff. But yet we have it's the other day we are looking at these Polaris four by four ATV's. Boy that looks like fun. Why don't we get one of those start thinking? Yeah. It's great. A winter. We use it. Where do we keep it? You know, we have the space to keep it. But when did we use it? What would we do with? Where would we go? That would mean we'd have to take time off from something else to travel to somewhere else, and they're showing them driving ATV mode in all-terrain vehicles in the mud and the water and the the Forest Hills through sand, and boy, it looks like fun to the question is are we gonna go by all that muddying gear and get herself all new motorcycle writing equipment and helmets gloves and boots and stuff. And then find a place to buy a trailer to put it on the trailer and drive it out some place. And I mean, that's the kind of stuff you have to think about is like every time you pick up one end of a stick your picking up both ends of stick. And it starts to change on you. And so if you decide you want one of these ATV's, you now realize it's not street legal. You can't drive it somewhere. So you have to have a trailer. My gosh. Now, I have to have a trailer and the ATV, right? Then you realize that if you get right ATV, it's going to be fun at all you're going to need a helmet, and you're going to need gloves, and you're gonna need a suit that, you know, going in the mud and the water you're gonna need to have a. Oh, what do they call them, the wait waiters and so forth. That's guys will wear waiters because they're up that are wasting water mud, and it's fun as that looks is it worth that in the real questions. And then what do you take out of the pickle jar to make it fit? 'cause you gotta go back in there and take something else out. And like I already said I took out two weeks. I haven't worked out, and I know today, I gotta go start working out again because I'm just gonna go insane. If I don't so now something else has to come out of the jar. But you know, Melissa six gonna take her to the doctor. So maybe I can't go to the gym because I have to take her to the doctor where where does all this stuff and. And I was thinking seriously about this. Right. You know, how how do you work this out? And I started trying to figure out. How could you make everything fit? And then I realized I had a piece of the story. A piece of the solution in mind, I'd already used it. But I hadn't perfected the thought process around using it, which is you're going to need additional pickle jars. Think of that concept you need additional pickle jars. So each pickle jar of your life. Now contains some portion of your life and restricts the usage of that portion to some other group of people they're gonna maintain that pickle jar for you. Now, that's an interesting concept. And so I started playing with you know, what that's true because what I bought an apartment complex. I didn't have to spend any or very little of my time out of my pickle jar manages complex because the pickle jar or the complex was a pickle jar in and of itself. It had staff now to operate that business was again, the skillset of managing that pickle jar of that business and getting the work load, which is again limited by the time usage of the pickle jar getting the workload done in a fashion, which the big rocks were done. I those things that were important on operating that apartment complex had to get done. First. They were the most important rocks and had to go into that pickle jar. And again, you had to fill it up as much co with big rocks than you go with the try to get the the good pebbles in and then. The rest of sand and water fills in around you. So when you own an apartment complex, there's things that you go in there and doing you're thinking, I gotta get in here. We've got to get this thing renovated. We've got to get the rents up. We've gotta get the expenses down under control. We have these issues. We have these goals. He's rocks. That are rock solid ideas that we want to accomplish. But then again, there's taxes tenants. Toilet stuff. Just fills in around you. Yes. Something flood. Something breaks. Tenants are bad. Whatever it is. And those things are just day killers. You know, if you working apartment complex, by the way, we don't work in your part comes that's the idea of having a separate pickle jar. That took jarred self your employees, your staff there there, and that Sinn minutia gets in their way, you want them to leave. But if they're busy dealing with tentative, shoes or maintenance issues all day long. They can't get their arms or their head wrapped around. Eating out there and filling this thing up keeping full. So it becomes an illustration in pickle jar management all over again. It's the second pickle jar in your life. Is this business that you set up, but at least you're not working in that pickle jar you own that pickle jar that pickle jars performing for you. But you're not working in that pickle

Georg Philipp Telemann 3: Self-Taught Composers
"Hello. I'm Naomi Lewin. Welcome to classics for kids. Garrick Phillip Telemann never studied composition. He taught himself. How to write music turns out that's not so unusual. A lot of composers taught themselves. As a kid Edward elgar wrote music for a play that members of his family put onto entertain each other elgar never had any music instruction other than instrument lessons, but he wound up making a very good living as a composer. When Nikolai rimsky-korsakov was in the Russian naval academy. He met up with mealy Bollock ringleader of a group of Russian composers Rynski Korsakov thought that Bella cure. Ed had taught him how to compose. But after he was hired to teach composition at the Saint Petersburg, conservatory rimsky-korsakov's suddenly realized how little he actually knew about it. So he got some books and studied hard always managing to keep just one lesson ahead of what he was teaching his students. After he'd gotten started on his composing career Francie spoon. I got a few pointers about writing music from his teacher, but Poulenc was mostly self taught. African American composer. Scott Joplin was the son of freed slave Joplin figured out. How to play the piano all by himself, and he also figured out how to write the NO rags? Scott Joplin did eventually take college classes in music, so that he could fulfill his dream of writing an opera when American composer, Amy beach was three years old. She taught herself to read when she was four. She started writing piano pieces in her head finally any beach went to a composition teacher. But all he did was show her how to teach herself by studying the work of other great composers. Someone else who believed in studying the work of other great composers was Johann Sebastian Bach. Learn composition from his family members. He came from a long line of musicians who handed down the profession from poverty to sun. But the concerto was pretty new in box day. So he taught himself to write concertos by studying on Tonio vivaldi's music. Twentieth. Century Brazilian composer, Etabe LA Noche was a big Bach fan when nobody was a kid. His father took him to concerts and quizzed him about the music. He was listening to what are those instruments who wrote that piece eventually below Bush became fascinated with Brazilian folk music and ran off to perform with street musicians, then below Bush found a connection between Brazilian music and Johann Sebastian Bach. He wrote a whole set of pieces based on that connection. By the time. George Gershwin finally got around to taking composition lessons. He was in his mid twenties, and he was already famous for writing popular songs, which he figured out how to do all by himself. There's a story that Gershwin asked to famous composers MAURICE rebel and eagles Stravinsky if he could study with them, but they both said no because they really liked his music and thought he was doing just fine without their help.

Getting a job in Switzerland as an American
"Today we're gonna be talking all about how you can find the job in Switzerland as a foreigner. Why are we talking about that today? You may well, ask yourself? Well, not only is it one of the biggest? If not the biggest question that you have before you move here, but or recommit ner if I'm pronouncing your name correctly and apologies if not posted it in our Facebook group, actually, it's good Switzerland for English speakers and Rica had a number of different questions that she based in there. And then we took all of her ideas, put them to pole and as lovely people in our Facebook group said that they wanted to know most about how you can find a job in Switzerland as a foreigner. Yeah, and it's really cool at this Facebook group starts to develop with loads of our listeners and super exciting because you also for example, the other day where all these people are coming from so exciting to read where all these people are coming from. Let's let's have a look at a few now. Yeah, that'd be great. For example, Steph time she comes from Geneva and is now in the Midland. So Swiss sent. That's cool to Maitland and so Hello Steph. And then we have not not Talia from when it's Wella and living in chef Osen. Now today. Yeah, we have lots of people from India living in Surrey people from scope, living in bam, and also people that live abroad and just are interested in Switzerland or have for let relatives or something like that. So it's really interesting to see all these people coming together, and we really hope that you enjoy it and that people who are part of the group that they can influence a little bit our show. Yeah, that that's for interesting because we might have a good idea for the program and then we can skew if you agree what you think you might like to hear about somewhere along the way we find out make an episode and actually like it. So that's let's go back to our original point. He claims to stop how to find a job in Switzerland for people living abroad. Exactly. So I think the big first question is, where enough can you look for job? Where would you find job by penins? Yes. Well. The classic version is you go online and you just search wherever you counter. We have loads of Maine search platforms. I will put a few on our website on Swiss and chips dot com and put all the links stare. So you can just follow them or you go on Google and you just search for finding a job in Switzerland or be a bit more specific. If you already know you come and live in Ben, for example, you might search for finding Joplin pen and then you end up on one of these city platforms like Stehlin Ben punked Sahar is for example, for Penn search platform. And there you find all the jobs you can subscribe to the newsletters and you can sign up and they'll notify you basically when a new jokes climate them hustle, come home also app six. And what would be the phrase that you look for in German if you wanted to find a website that's in Gemini, anointing glitch, Joep, sue in that right. It may sound. It may sound like a stupid question, but the big stumbling block PK define the site, but how did you do it by the way? Well, I was looking for a pretty specific job basically. I used to work in radio, read it in like nice. Yes, like nice, but doesn't this case very. So because I was working in radio more back then I was looking for Joe Barack could speak English. So like production company or a media company will something along those lines. So I was looking at websites and Switzerland's that had something to do this by the had something an English on that website. And that might be a clue that they have English speaking clients. For example, that was my starting point. I ended up finding an English speaking radio station. It just happened. They had a job and in the end it just happened that they chose me. So here I am. A lot of kind of look collides. Basically, I think that's always how it works. So also for Swiss people, you need a bit of luck and someone knows somebody and so on. That's why I would also recommend if you search on all these major platforms than you also tell all your friends and maybe go to our Facebook group and just posted there like someone just today and go to other Facebook groups or go on lengthen posted there. Tell your friends. Tell it on Twitter and just ask everyone basically, and in case you already. I think it's easier if you already know where you want to work, for example, like I said before and the place, for example, you know, I want to go and work in Penn,
