A highlight from Singleness and the Rest of the World
"Welcome to Gospel in Life. The power of marriage is that it is a reflection of the gospel. Today Tim Keller explores how marriage can help us more deeply understand Christ's love for us and how Christ's love for us can completely transform our marriages. You heard Jordan say before lunch that there's a wide spectrum of how individuals experience singleness. Some of you no doubt would describe it as suffering. Others might just call it sadness. And still others say it's a sense, well you saw the video, a sense of freedom. I can do whatever I want. I can turn on a dime. I can go on a missions trip, you know, anytime I want to. I can serve God without the burden of a family. A single is sort of like a little zippy sports car you can zip around and a family is like one of those 18 wheelers that takes three blocks to make a turn. And you're carrying diaper bags. It's important to recognize though that the experience of suffering and unhappiness is a part of life for everyone no matter what you are, whether you are a single Christian, a happily or unhappily married person, whether you're ill or whether you're financially secure or insecure. Our challenge is to live a godly and a holy life in whatever condition that we're in. That's the core challenge. Every situation in life will have its own particularities but the similarities are more than the differences. I'm pretty much sure I can prove that. Tim's going to talk about a theology of singleness after me but before I do that, before we get to that, before we talk about singleness in particular, I want to talk about how to live godly lives in Christ under any circumstances. Here at Jessica Hong also talk about having a plan in our head about how our lives are supposed to go. I think that's a brilliant insight that she had. We grow up starting in our childhood and just pulling from all sorts of sources, TV and read and who knows where and we get this sort of wibbly -wobbly, timey -wimey, messy kind of idea of how we think our life is going to go or if you don't speak Dr. Who. Just seeing if any of you are out there. Good. An inchoate mass of expectations of how things are going to go and as long as our experience doesn't diverge too far or too painfully from what we're expecting, we're all right. But once there is a divergence, a why in the road, a fork in the road, that's when our lives have to, that's when we are given a choice that we have to face. You're not all drivers here in New York so maybe you don't know what a fork in the road is. It's not somebody's takeout utensils that they left lying in the street. It's where one branch of the road goes this way and the other branch of the road goes that way. I mean, I'm not making any assumptions here. Not everybody's had the pleasure of meeting the people at the DMV. Divergence can take many forms, illness, the death of loved ones, romantic relationships that either go sour or they just don't bloom, career opportunities that don't materialize. Even the health that you expected to have might turn out to be out of reach. And in your 20s, these divergences don't seem too important because you have this sense that there's still plenty of time for God to get it right. But as time passes and the sense that our hopes and our dreams are slipping away starts to become more acute, that's when this fork in the road presents itself as a choice we have to make. Shall I continue to trust God and do as He commands with my life or should I strike out on my own and attempt to grasp those things that will make my dreams come true? As a young Christian, I tag this in my head with the term, I'm just helping God get the things that I know He wants me to have.

Shout out to Joe Calasari in the audience, throwing you an invite. We're going to be super casual today, by the way. Welcome as well to Cafe Bitcoin. This is episode four hundred and thirty nine. Shout out to our supporters on Fountain Nosternests and all of you that listen on Spotify, iTunes, of course. Our mission for this show is to provide signal in a sea of noise, teaching people on thing about this that we call Bitcoin. The bright orange future, the hope to today's show, we're basically just going to free flow and begin our Q &A, there's no future guests later today. So, yeah, we can talk about whatever you guys want to. If you have questions about Bitcoin or if you just have something you want to talk about, we're just going to like open it up. Shout out to Shane Hazel in the audience, throwing you an invite. The more I deal with the traditional banking system, the more I appreciate the properties and functionality of Bitcoin. It is, you know, it's an uncensorable aspect or excuse me, or property. My ability to transact with whom I want, when I want, where I want, and in the time frame that it allows. Is just it's phenomenal, it is just such a better way to transact value and to, you know, to be able to move your value to where you want it to, when you want it to. It's just yesterday or two days ago that walking into a bank, I'm still in shock, walking into a bank with some money to deposit in somebody's account and being told they don't take cash. It's still, my jaw is still on the floor. The attitude, though, in the banking industry has changed a lot because you've got older people who are retiring or moving into, you know, more management positions where they're not so much customer facing anymore. So the people who are customer facing are all younger and they don't remember a time when there wasn't FATCA and there wasn't the Bank Secrecy Act and there wasn't all this bullshit. So to them, they've grown up in a surveillance state and it's normal, which is weird as fuck because they have this attitude like they don't actually treat customers like it's your money anymore. They treat customers like we're in charge of your money and you have to get our permission to use it the way you want. And that is a, that's a second and third order effect of all this surveillance state bullshit and all this quote compliance stuff. It's a two, it's a double edged sword because not only has the younger generation grown up and are, you know, are accommodative of this, of this surveillance state, but the older generation, the boomers, and probably some, a lot of the Gen Xers, they are comfortable enough in their finances to not be in a position where they find a need or necessity to push back against the state. And I was just talking to my brother about this and he's like, yeah, I recognize all that stuff, but he's comfortable, you know, and so he just, he's not willing to, there's a lot of people who are not willing or have no incentive to push back against the state. So it's really a double edged kind of sword. Those that recognize it are in a position where they don't have to, they don't feel like they need to do anything. And those that should be doing something about it potentially, you know, don't even recognize it.

Rep. Massie Asks AG Garland Why Ray Epps Only Received a Misdemeanor
"On a misdemeanor? Meanwhile, you're sending grandmas to prison. You're putting people away for 20 years for merely filming. Some people weren't even there yet. You got the guy on video. He's saying, go into the Capitol. He's directing people to the Capitol before the speech ends. He's at the site of the first breach. You've got all on the goods him, 10 videos. And it's an, and it's an indictment for a misdemeanor. The American public isn't buying I it. yield the balance of my time to Chairman Jordan. May I answer the question? I'm going to ask you one now. We'll let the gentleman. Yeah. Go ahead. In discovery, in the cases that were filed with respect to January 26, the Justice Department prosecutors provided whatever information they had about the question that you're asking. With respect to Mr. Apps, the FBI has said that he was not an employee or informant of the FBI. Mr. Apps has been charged. And there's a proceeding I believe going on today on that subject. The charge is a joke. I yield to the chairman. Cut nine, go. Elon Musk was a Democrat who admittedly supported Biden, but then he became a critic of the administration and exposed the censorship regime. Now, per public reports, the DOJ has opened not one but two investigations of Elon Musk. Mark Zuckerberg, on the other hand, spent $400 million in 2020 tilting the elections secretly for Democrats. No investigations so far. To the American public, these look like mafia tactics. You pay us your money, we look the other way, you get in our way, we punish you. The American public, these tactics are. One hundred percent. While it's more of the same the during hearing, I'm not going to play anymore for you,

A highlight from Battle Royale
"And welcome back to Cinema Vino. It's another Two -Man episode with Sean Jordan and I. Two -Man, yep. Exactly. That's all I got. Oh man, I need to record that. That could be our thing. Our little blurb. Our little bumper. Yeah. So this will be the penultimate episode of our Summer of Chaos with Battle Royale, which is Sean's pick. This is my pick? Yeah. This is one I've wanted to get on for a while. This has been on my list to like throw in here. I'm glad we did it. I'm glad we covered it. It's the perfect format to do it too, you know, where anything goes. It doesn't fit many other places. It's a weird kind of wheel that we, you know, spin the wheel. Strangely enough, pick two whites, two French whites. Just like this podcast. Exactly. Oui. Oui. So this is Sauvignon. So S -A -U -V -I -O -N. Sauvignon Vouvray. Vouvray is going to be the name of the region where this comes from. I was going to say is Sauvignon the winery? Sauvignon is going to be the winery. Kind of pretentious to call it Sauvignon. Exactly. I know. But it's not Sauvignon like Sauvignon Blanc. It's like Sauvignon. Yeah. But again, my French just can't do that justice. No. Nor can mine. So Vouvray is going to be Chenin Blanc grapes. And these are going to be on the right bank of the Loire River. Chenin Blanc, 100 % one grape? Yeah. That's a varietal. It's going to be in kind of west central France. And a lot like Riesling, these Vouvrays will cover a wide flavor palette. They can be dry. They can be sweet. They can be in between. This to me is kind of in between. Definitely. I mean, compared to the Bordeaux that we drank earlier that's dry, this is way, the sweetness is way more pronounced on this one. I think overall, I would classify this as probably off dry. If one is bone dry and 10 is super sticky sweet, I would put this at about a 5 .5. This is right in the middle? Mm -hmm. Right down the middle. But yeah, most of the... What have you got going on here? If you go to your wine store now and you see a lot of Vouvrays, a lot of them are going to be bubbly. They're going to be sparkling. They're going to have the champagne method. You'll see, there'll be some still wines. Oh. But you'll see a lot more sparkling Vouvrays out there, like Champelou. That is definitely less dry than the last one. Yes. You'll get more sugar on that. It's also got... Feels like more... It's like almost a minerality of like the... It's not bubbly. It's almost just like a soft water, you know? Well, this also has kind of a floral... Like an effervescence. Yeah. Yeah. It has a real floral kick to it. And you look at the... It has more of a hay color. Like the Bordeaux that we had was a lot more light pale. This one has a little more haze and a little more of a kind of bright hay color, a little more yellow to it. Yeah. But it has a little more body. It has a little more of a creamy flavor to it, a little more creamy texture. But I mean... But not buttery. No, it's not buttery. It's not chard buttery. No. But it also has kind of a honeysuckle texture, I think, to it. There's some... Honeysuckle? You are breaking out the big guns. I'm going big. Wow. But yeah, it's definitely sweeter. But not sticky sweet. There's definitely sweeter stuff out there. Yeah. It's not like a Moscato. It sticks out more because of the Bordeaux. It's kind of like if you're in a really cold pool and you get into even a lukewarm hot tub, it's going to feel really hot because you've been in a cold pool. I was in the pool. But drinking that fairly dry Bordeaux makes this one feel that much sweeter. It does. But it's pleasant. I like it a lot. Yeah. It's a good companion with that. It's two different tastes completely. So we talked on the last episode about the white Bordeaux being paired well with fish. Yeah. I mean, same thing here? I think this is another one of those that I would do with Thanksgiving stuff. I would do... I was going to say turkey would be really good with this. It'd be a great pair. But pretty much all that stuff, cranberry. I mean, pretty much anything would go well with ham. Yeah. Any of that kind of stuff because of the honey flavor that you'd get from it. But I think it would go well with salad. It would go well with the entire holiday meal that you would do. A little cranberry sauce? Yeah. I think that would be a perfect pair. A little creaming casserole? We're about two. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think it would go well with dressing, stuffing, whatever you want to call it. Yeah. I think there's a difference between dressing and stuffing. There is. Yeah. That's a different podcast. Yeah. But we're a couple of months out from Thanksgiving, but if you're looking ahead, vuvre would be a good choice. If you're looking for something to do kind of before the meal, a sparkling vuvre would be a good way. Or even after the meal when you're settling down to watch the game or whatever, a bubbly vuvre would be a good pick. What I like about this is it's not super bubbly. It's not bubbly at all. No. No. It's going to be still. It has that lightness of like almost an effervescence, but not an effervescence. Yeah. It's kind of, it's refreshing, you know, but it's unlike the Bordeaux, which was refreshing to kind of a dry, crisp way. This one has a little more bright, fun, like fruit. This is kind of more... The other one's more tart. Like you feel like that, like unripe and peach. Yeah. You know, this one's more like ripe, sweet, grassy, kind of like a ripe fruit. Yeah, exactly. But yeah, two completely different personalities between the Bordeaux and the vuvre. And I'm kind of glad we got contrasting French whites. Yeah. But yeah, so you'll see a lot of sparklings out there. So when you see these, they're on a scale. Brut's going to be the driest. Demisek's going to be sweeter. And then you'll see everything up to like Moliot, which is very sweet, the sweetest of all the vuvres. So if you're looking, then that's going to be your scale. Basically, it's the like higher the scale, the more sugary sweetness is going to be on them. So they do vuvres? Yeah, they do. Because they're made in the Champagne method, they'll have a lot of the same scale when they do bubbly. But yeah, in a bubbly section of a good wine store now, you should see a few vuvres, sparkling vuvres. They'll be cheaper than Champagne, so they're actually a good pick if you're looking for something on a budget. Champagne is only from the Champagne region of France. Exactly. And so yeah, these will be made in the same style, but not the same region. No. But anyway, yeah. So this one, the Sauvignon runs around 20 bucks. I think it's like 22. Pretty good buy. Yeah, it'd be a good holiday wine if you were looking for something that it's good, it's well made, but it's not crazy expensive. Impress your wine friends with this? Exactly. Yeah, it should. And you can impress them because it's a good wine. You can say, I didn't spend a whole lot of money on it. It's like, it's one of those deals where it really helps to know what you're looking for. Oh, this is a real, you know, it's a real hole in the wall kind of wine. Boutique. You know, it might not be a wine you really heard of. Yeah, exactly. It's like the kind of the hipster thing where it's like you impress people like you found something that they didn't know about. Yeah, it's underground. Yeah, exactly. So Battle Royale. This is a it was restricted, not released in the United States until 2010. Many countries did not release it due to its violent subject matter. This is probably, in my opinion, the most culturally touchy film that we've examined. Probably the most controversial film that we've examined for this podcast. Really? Because it was not released in quite a few countries because it was so violent, so graphic. Which after watching it, do you feel like that's this movie now would not be considered super violent? Yes, which is one of my, which altered my perception of it. Had not having seen it before, having seen it now changed my opinion of it. So we'll get to that in a minute. So this received a direct -to -video release in 2010. It's received strong reviews, 88 % Rotten Tomatoes. Quentin Tarantino declared it to be his favorite film released since 2000. It set the template for The Hunger Games, which came later. A lot of people commented when they saw it. The Hunger Games came out in what, I think it came out around 2010. Yeah, somewhere in that range. A lot of people said that it had a lot of similarities to Battle Royale. Yes. I don't know when the books, the Hunger Games books came out. Definitely after the book that this was based on came out. Okay. Because I think the book that this was based on came out in 1998. I don't want to, I don't want to definitively say that The Hunger Games was based off of this, but. Definitely inspired by it. Yeah.

A highlight from Robert Kiyosaki: Buy Bitcoin NOW, Before Market Crash | EP 828
"Yo, welcome to Simply Bitcoin Live, we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution, we cover breaking news, culture, and medic warfare, we will be your guide through the separation of money and state. Robert Kiyosaki, he is the author of Rich Dad Poor Dad, it was one of the most influential books that I read in my professional career, in fact it was one of the first books that I read in my late teens, early 20s, I dropped out of college so I took the non -normal path, the path where my parents are like, you're never going to make anything of yourself, and that book was a big inspiration for me, it motivated me and it really kind of changed on my mindset what is money, what is entrepreneurship, what is wealth, so I highly recommend that book if you haven't read it, and the reason I'm talking about this individual today is because he's pretty base, he likes Bitcoin, he likes Bitcoin a lot, and he tweeted something, something actually that he's been tweeting for quite a while, and essentially what he's saying is, you better get yourself some gold, you better get yourself some silver, obviously I don't agree with the gold and the silver, it's not that gold in itself is bad, I just think that the gold market is captured because of gold centralization, because of its physical characteristics it leads to a lot of people cussing their gold, and I think that inevitably leads to rehypothecation, that inevitably leads to manipulation. So, yeah, I think Bitcoin is the insurance, but most importantly, if this news was just on itself, you would say, Niko, this is a bunch of noise, what does it matter if another person is saying to buy Bitcoin? Well you guys know the deal, what we do here at Simply Bitcoin, connect the dots, remember all the people that are saying, buy Bitcoin, the other day I think it was yesterday's episode, you had Jordan Peterson, so you have another influencer, you have another person who has a huge following, who's the author of a very, very famous book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, it's a very influential book, also saying the quiet part out loud, buy Bitcoin as insurance, get on the life raft, so that is awesome, we're gonna talk about that today, and also in the European Union, European Union passed DAC8, and essentially what that would do is it would force crypto service providers to report all transaction information on EU clients, which is something very, very similar to the Elizabeth Warren bill that we covered on yesterday's episode, so yeah, we covered Jordan Peterson on Monday, we covered the Elizabeth Warren stuff yesterday, so you could see where all these countries, the direction that all these countries are heading, as the separation of money and state accelerates, and the nation state tries to maintain that privilege, the privilege, the control of money, the monopoly over money, but I don't think you can stop an idea whose time has come, so they're gonna have a very, very hard time stopping that, I'm very excited for today's show, it's Wednesday, we're halfway through the week, it's time to bring up my legendary co -host, who is literally smiling and laughing, this is Ati all the time, how you doing brother, what's up? I'm doing great, I'm just laughing at you, because like hey, you know, I was joking before the show, I was like okay, let's just get the show done, and you're like, I live for this stuff, this is what I do, and it still works, but we love to do this man, and yeah, to your point, you know, I remember reading Robert Kiyosaki's Rich Dad Poor Dad, my early days right before I found Bitcoin, and it was definitely one of those defining books in my life that, you know, I think I've come a long way since then, but it was one of those books that definitely got me reading, or at least thinking about money correctly, anyways, on that point, last week we had a kneel on, and someone asked, what are some of the Bitcoin fundamentals, and so I went on my Noster yesterday, and I asked people what they thought are some Bitcoin fundamentals, and shout out to Darth Coin, our simply Bitcoin Telegram group moderator, and he gave me one of his articles, so I'm gonna use that as a jump off point, so hopefully some new people that are in the chat, I saw someone say they just got their first, you know, their first Bitcoin, they just started stacking, so you know, we're new people in the Simply Bitcoin YouTube that maybe aren't as familiar with everything that we know, we're trying to get them on board, you know, I know you guys, I can hear you guys saying, you know, Opti repeats himself so much, but hey, we're trying to get everyone on the same page, not everyone understands as much as you do, and as I jokingly say all the time, I think I've forgotten more about Bitcoin than I remember, but all you need to remember is, stack sad, stay humble, stay solvent, take your Bitcoin off the exchange, keep it simple guys, so we're gonna kind of get back to some fundamentals, give you guys some, as Darth Coin says, some Bitcoin commandments, and we'll kind of have a little chat about that, I'd like to get, or pick Niko's brain about what he thinks are some of the fundamentals as well, so we got a good show, I think actually it's gonna be a fitting show with the Robert Kiyosaki news as well. Robert Kiyosaki man, it's absolute legend, love, love his work, love the book that he wrote, also guys if you're enjoying the show, help us break 100 likes within the first hour, I think yesterday, or the day before, we broke 200 likes, so if you're watching the live stream right now on Rumble, YouTube, Twitter, make sure to smash that like button, also join Simply Bitcoin's Telegram group, it's absolutely free, we're almost, we're about to hit a thousand people in there, so just go to t .me slash simply Bitcoin TV, join it, it's a party, you can tag Opti there with some memes and he'll feature them on the show. Alright everybody, no more delay, let's jump straight into the numbers, we got a lot to talk about today, let's check it out. The Bitcoin Numbers Is your Bitcoin and cold storage really secure? Is your seed phrase really secure? Stamped Seeds Do It Yourself Kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade titanium plates, instead of just writing them on paper, don't store your generational wealth on paper, paper is prone to water damage, fire damage, you wanna put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet earth, titanium. Your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer, and these letter stamps, and once your words are in, they aren't going anywhere, no risk of the plate breaking apart and pieces falling everywhere. Titanium stamped seeds will survive nearly triple the heat produced by a house fire, they're also crush proof, waterproof, non -corrosive, and time proof, all things that paper is not, allowing you to huddle your Bitcoin with peace of mind for the long haul. Stamp your seed on stamp seed. Alright guys, I literally made it easy for you guys, scan the QR code on your screen with your phone, it will take you directly to the stamp seed website, you can use promo code simply to get 15 % off anything on the stamp seed website, store your generational wealth on fucking titanium bro, titanium. Anyways, the Bitcoin price at the recording is 27 ,155, sats per dollar, 3 ,683, block height 808 ,601, blocks to halving 31 ,399, halving estimate April 21st, 2024, total lightning network capacity 4 ,829 Bitcoin, capacity value 131 million US dollars, realized monetary inflation rate, inflation 1 .75%, continuing to take fiat currencies to absolute school, market capitalization, 529 billion dollars with a B, Bitcoin versus gold market cap 4 .09%. In the grand scheme of things, Bitcoin is still a tiny little baby. Anyways, something to point out, something very interesting, which is the Bitcoin versus gold market cap. That will continue to go up if Bitcoin reaches the gold market cap, that is 500 million dollars sorry yes, 500 ,000 dollars per Bitcoin, rough estimate. So and we all know that Bitcoin is better than gold because of its physical characteristics. Again I know a lot of people that like gold in the chat and I appreciate you all and I'm a fan of gold too, gold bar like physical gold I'm a big fan of but problem is that most people don't like they don't they don't buy physical gold, they buy paper gold. That's the issue right? With Bitcoin you know it allows you to take self custody of your Bitcoin extremely easy, you know you don't have you don't have to wait for it to get physically mailed to you. If you go to El Salvador where Bitcoin is legal tender and you go to a McDonald's you know you could pay with your Bitcoin because Bitcoin has a bunch of decimal places you know it's divisible it's goes through the internet if you use lightning network it's instantaneous you know the main chain writes roughly 10 minutes settlement but you'll still see the transaction immediately.

A highlight from Lexy Boudreau | EFM jobs in PEPFAR, USAID and OIG
"This is Lauren with the Available Worldwide Podcast, and I'm here today with a friend who I met at post, I think my second post, I don't know what it was for her, so I'll have to ask, but I'm here with Lexi Boudreau, who has had, you know, a classic EFM career with a little bit of work with several different agencies and businesses and self and family and all sorts of things pasted together. Lexi, we usually start with a few questions, kind of to get to know you a little bit, so I'm going to ask you, where are you currently located and who do you live with? So, we just PCS'd, or I just PCS'd back to the US with my oldest son who just graduated from college and my youngest son who is going to start his junior year for the first time going to school in the US as a junior, and my husband is starting in Pakistan, so this is my first unaccompanied tour. So, everybody's got new things going for them this year? Every single one of us. I have four children and we're all doing something new. My daughter is a freshman in college and my son is a senior in college, so all six of us have something exciting going on. So, I know that we live together in South Korea. What other countries have you lived in? So, that was our third post. Our first post was, I always say it was our hardest, our hardship post was Bermuda. It was very fun but a little challenging living on a very tiny island, but it was great and our kids were the youngest and then we were in Ukraine and then we were in South Korea and then we were in Uganda and most recently we were in Jordan. With all those different countries, you must have some ultimate comfort foods. Are they country specific or is it a memory from home? My comfort food is crab cakes, which is a traditional comfort food, but that's my favorite food from growing up and it's what I miss most when I'm overseas because not it's something you normally get. So, it's honestly the first thing I try to find when I'm back in the U .S. Are you from Maryland? Sort of. I grew up in South Carolina and Maryland, but Maryland is where my heart is, yeah. Okay. I mean, I feel like crab cakes are pretty regional, though they are also one of my mom's favorite foods. Yeah, it's a Maryland thing. Yeah. So, I have a kind of complicated growing up.
A highlight from Jordan Peterson: Scrap the Banks, Adopt Bitcoin | EP 825
"It's all going to zero against Bitcoin, it's going up for everyone, you're against Bitcoin, you're against freedom. Yo, welcome to Simply Bitcoin Live, we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution, we will be your guide through the separation of money and state. Crazy news, Jordan Peterson, one of the most influential people on planet earth in terms of media, basically said the quiet part out loud, he said, scrap banks, adopt Bitcoin. And the crazy part about this, right, is what you hear from a lot of the political rhetoric, right, what you hear from a lot of the people that correctly identify the problems, like Xavier Millie is a great example of this, right, he's correctly identified the issue, the issue is central banking, the issue is the state, right? But you if correctly identify the issue without providing a solution, you're not really going anywhere, like the whole end the Fed movement, shout out Ron Paul, because I think he really, really started that in the United States, like, that's great, right? But what it and the Fed, and then what, and the Fed and then Bitcoin. So when someone who has that much influence outside of the Bitcoin echo chamber is not only saying scrap banks, but is actually presenting the solution to his mainstream audience that is not, that is not inside the Bitcoin echo chamber, that is a really, really big deal. So we're going to get into that, he has a massive following not only on YouTube, also on Twitter, I know a lot of people don't agree with his politics. And you know, and I respect that. And I understand that. But what I ask you is to zoom out, it's not his, his politics are irrelevant to this cause to what we're trying to achieve here. And what we're ultimately trying to achieve is a separation of money and state peacefully, people waking up realizing that no one should have the ability to create money for free that someone else has to work for. And they opt out into not only a, not only a currency that is not inflationary, but is actually deflationary, your purchasing power increases over time. So that's why this is a big deal. That's why it's a big deal when people like Jordan Peterson, people like Joe Rogan, people like Tucker Carlson, when they taught Tim Pool the other day, it's very, very important that those individuals that have massive followings, independent followings outside of the legacy corporate media talk about Bitcoin, because that is when the mainstream starts to start starts to ask questions. And I'm very, very glad that Jordan Peterson not only correctly identified the problem, but also said, okay, the solution is Bitcoin. Now this was a, this is a major effort by the Bitcoin community, right? There was a podcast that he did with Robert Breedlove, Gigi. I think he did one with Safedean also that all contributed to him coming to that conclusion that Bitcoin was the answer, just like how Max Kaiser went on Tucker Carlson, just how Michael Saylor went on Tucker Carlson, just how Marty Bette went on Tucker Carlson. Bitcoiners breaking out of the Bitcoin echo chamber, getting into the ears of huge, massively popular mainstream independent content creators so that they can tell their audience, guys, it's not left or right. It's not, it's not all this stuff that you guys are getting caught distracted with. The issue is the money. You fix the money, you fix the world. That's why I'm so hyped about today's episode. Anyways, I want to bring up my legendary cohost. He's getting more professional by the minute. He's wearing polos now. Are we just, are we just, are we just poloing it up bro from, from now on? Is that what we're doing? Yo, Anders was trolling me that I, that I allegedly am going to be wearing a suit in LA. I don't have a suit, so maybe I'll have to buy a suit so that I can be more professional. No, it was literally, it just got washed. It was on my computer chair and I'm like, all right, I'm wearing a polo today. It is what it is. It is what it is. But you're wearing a lot more polos as of late, bro. I have two polos and it's like I put on a button shirt and everyone's like, Oh, you're so professional. It's like, guys, I'm just not wearing a hoodie and a t -shirt, but Hey, I don't know. I will do a poll. Do people want me to wear polos anymore? I, whatever, whatever. Anyway, this is not about my fashion decisions. Okay. Um, yeah, man, Nico, crazy stuff. I can't wait to break down this whole new story today, but we'll save that for later. On that note, we do have a guest today. Shouts out to Stefan, a Bitcoiner, and we're really going to dive in on the connections between health and Bitcoin and why you guys need to get healthy out there. It's super important. Anyway, Stefan, how are you doing today? I'm great, guys. Thanks for having me on. Thanks for joining us on Simply.
A highlight from SEC Kills Stoner Cats' Buzz // friendtech Activity Surges
"Hey, everyone. Happy Friday and welcome to another weekly recap from The Defiant. I'm joined by Jeremy Nation and Owen Fournau, our staff reporters. And though we had a bit of a quiet week in the markets, we still had a lot of interesting developments across crypto and DeFi. So for one thing, the SEC has been stepping up its pursuit of NFT projects, not content with going after crypto and DeFi. They charged Ashton Kutcher's Stoner Cats project with selling unregistered securities. For those of you who are around in 2021, this was a very hyped project. And basically, they sold NFTs to finance an animated web series. And they, I think they made a few episodes, but then the project kind of died off. And so the SEC has charged them with basically misleading investors with the promise of profits, et cetera. So that's I think the implications of that for the broader NFT space or something that we're going to dive into as we go on with the show. In other news, we had Friendtech, of course, coming back after a sort of a lull over the last two weeks or so. This week, we suddenly saw a resurgence and record inflows. Right. And Owen's all over that. Try my best. Yeah. We had the banana token, which was the token belonging to a Telegram bot that was a really hyped launch that went badly wrong to start off the week when a contract bug basically forced them to drain the liquidity and relaunch the token. And of course, it wouldn't be a week without some new Binance FUD. Right. So as always, there's always something going on with the world's largest exchange regulators all around the world seems to seem to just want something from them all the time. So we'll talk about that as well. So let's dive straight in and get started with the SEC's recent action against Stoner Cats. All right. So hey, everyone, everyone's doing okay. So that was September 13. The SEC charged the company behind Stoner Cats with selling tokens in an unregistered securities offering. And that was the second direct charge against an NFT project in the last two plus, maybe like two and a half weeks, because the SEC charged a project called Impact Theory with also selling unregistered securities. And so we're starting to see a pattern, obviously, of these projects settling with the SEC so far. And we're going to have to see where this goes. One thing people were pointing out is that because the owners of the projects stood to gain from the royalties that they because they because they make money off the royalties, they were encouraging people to buy and sell them, which made them more because they profited off that it made them more likely to, I guess, just, yeah, I don't know, it makes it more like a security. I don't quite follow the legal reasoning there. But yeah, we're starting to see a buildup of cases. I talked to some lawyers a couple weeks ago and saying like, yeah, there might be this kind of way where you build up various enforcement actions and kind of use them. When you go after bigger players, you kind of point to these and say, look, these people settled like you're not on good grounds, although it doesn't actually set formal legal precedent, these, these settlements, they still have kind of a murky but impactful effect on cases moving forward is my understanding. So we'll have to see, obviously, a huge amount of NFT projects went live in 2021. And we'll have to see which, which the SEC picks off next, because I find it pretty unlikely that they're going to stop at these two right here. I don't know. The SEC seems they seem to be going after any type of crypto project that has any type of celebrity endorsement is what I've seen. I saw that too. Yeah. I wonder I wonder if they're doing. Yeah, they're going after big names for whatever reason to show they're not. I don't know. I don't know what their strategy is to show they're not scared of. Yeah, big names, but not big industries. They aren't shutting down the voyagers or the FTX is that are out there defrauding people for all those. defrauding because, you know, yeah, I mean, I think it's interesting that they picked this particular project because of all the broken promises and, you know, unfulfilled hype. Yeah, these guys actually made the show, right? They actually put out seven episodes. Most projects just put a roadmap out and did nothing. If I was an NFT founder from 2021, and I kind of soft drug, I'd be scared right now, especially given these recent actions. I'd say 99 % of the projects out there are guilty of worse than it's going to get. Yeah, Tegan, Jordan Teague, she's a lawyer. What did she say? She said, sorry, guys, it's been a rough morning. But God, I don't remember. She said something which I thought was interesting, but I don't remember. I'm sorry. Yeah, I think it'd be just interesting to see the next actions, like you said, right? Because if they try to build a series of actions to kind of build precedent, they have plenty of targets to go after. Certainly, it's a target rich environment, like Gary just needs to like, he can walk in blindfold and just open his eyes and find a rug. There's no there's no legal precedent. That's merely like the precedent based on like the social setting here where we're like, well, everyone else is doing it. So we'll settle to and if someone does decide, hey, we're going to fight you on this, you know, then it's going to go to a court to decide. And then that's where we've seen I think a lot more. I've seen Ashton Kutcher shield XRP on Ellen. I think we had everyone sharing anything. And you know, what's interesting is XRP has persisted longer than Ellen's show, which just shows that you should be nice to people. Anyway. The point here is, if it does go to like a legal case where like someone says, hey, we're not going to settle with you, then we're going to actually see where like, where this falls down here, because the SEC, from my opinion here, has their work cut out for them in court. When people are willing to say, oh, sure, we'll go along with you and like, you know, take the slap on the wrist. You know, these are people that have lots of money. That's I think why they're going after the celebrities, right? Because they know that there's a well of capital to draw upon in terms of, you know, levying fees and fines against these people, versus, you know, really digging in on a legal battle, because the celebrities don't have a stake in the dynamics of the Web3 ecosystem. Whereas some of these larger institutions that are willing to fight and wage that battle are, so they may be picking their targets based on that. Could be, because as part of the settlement, Stoner Cats also had to return all the money they raised, right? Yeah, they have to set a plan for it. Yeah. And when you have a high profile target, it's a lot easier to go after them. If you have like an anonymous founder for NFT project, you can just be anywhere in the world. Yeah. And are you really going to get that fine or penalty actually transferred? You never know. Might take years, right? Yeah.
A highlight from Shockingly, Gary Gensler Doesn't Like Stoner Cats
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin, and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Thursday, September 14th, and today we are talking about stoner cats. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or, if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on The Breaker's Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Alright, friends, well, I have to tell you, at this point we really have about four archetypes of breakdown shows. There's number one, oh god, more cleanup from 2022. There's number two, hey look, a new TradFi player is getting in the game. There's number three, hey look, a judge or elected official is smacking a regulator down. And then there's number four, hey look, an unelected bureaucrat is trying to expand their power again. And today's show is indeed an example of the fourth, and the reason it matters is not just because it's another SEC enforcement action, but because I do really think that this represents and is a great example of that impulse to authority expansion. So what am I referring to? Well, of course, I am referring to the SEC bringing its second enforcement action ever against an NFT project. This time, the regulator targeted Stoner Cats, a profile picture NFT collection that was sold to finance a web series. The SEC alleged that the sale of collectible NFTs constituted the sale of unregistered securities. The production company behind the project settled the allegations without admitting to the SEC's findings. So the details. Stoner Cats sold out their collection in around 35 minutes at the height of the NFT bull market in July 2021. The project raised $8 million from the sale. Marketing highlighted materials Hollywood producers and big -name celebrities attached to the web series, and suggested that the success of the show would increase the value of the NFTs in secondary markets. The company received 2 .5 % of royalties from secondary market sales, which produced $20 million in volume. In the settlement, Stoner Cats agreed to a cease -and -desist order and a $1 million penalty. In addition, a fund will be established to refund investors and all NFTs held by the company will be destroyed. Gurbir Gural, the director of the SEC's Division of Enforcement, said in a statement, Regardless of whether your offering involves beavers, chinchillas, or animal -based NFTs, under the federal securities laws, it's the economic reality of the offering, not the label you put on it or the underlying objects, that guides the determination of what's an investment contract and therefore a security. As an aside, I wonder sometime if they find their own writing as clever as they seem to. Beavers, chinchillas, or animal -based NFTs, wah. Moving on, the statement reads, Here the SEC's order finds that Stoner Cats marketed its knowledge of crypto projects, touted that the price of their NFTs could increase, and took other steps that led investors to believe they would profit from selling the NFTs in the secondary market. It's therefore hardly surprising, as the order finds, that Stoner Cats sold its entire supply of NFTs in just 35 minutes, generating proceeds of over $8 million, most of which were then resold, not held as collectibles, in the secondary market within months. Carolyn Welschans, the associate director of the SEC's home office, added, Stoner Cats wanted all the benefits of offering and selling a security to the public, but ignored the legal responsibilities that come with doing so. Now, Commissioners Hester Peirce and Mark Ueda offered what has become their customary dissent against the SEC's actions. They claimed the enforcement represented a perverse extension of the SEC's jurisdiction and the borders of the Howey Test into the realm of art and collectibles. In a statement they wrote, The application of the Howey Investment Contract Analysis in this matter lacks any meaningful limiting principle. It carries implications for creators of all kinds. Were we to apply the securities laws to physical collectibles in the same way we apply them to NFTs, artists' creativity would wither in the shadow of legal ambiguity. Rather than arbitrarily bringing enforcement actions against NFT projects, we ought to lay out some clear guidelines for artists and other creators who want to experiment with NFTs as a way to support their creative efforts and build their fan communities. The Commissioners claimed the NFT project was more properly characterized as a fan crowdfunding. More broadly, they expressed concern that, through this enforcement, the SEC were attempting to exert jurisdiction over collectibles in a way they had never previously done with physical objects. The Commissioners likened stoner cats to a scheme surrounding the launch of Star Wars toys in Christmas of 1977. The toy maker sold early bird certificate packages in lieu of actual toys due to problems with production. These certificates were redeemable for toys in due course, but could also be resold for a profit in secondary markets at the time. The Commissioners asserted that, Using the analysis of today's enforcement action, the SEC should have parachuted in to save those kids from Star Wars mania. The main point of the dissent was that the SEC should not use its enforcement to stifle innovation in creative industries through the use of NFTs. The Commissioners said that, They argued that the SEC's More generally, it contributes to the legal ambiguity facing artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, and others seeking to build a loyal, engaged following. There are a few different categories of reactions from people in the crypto community. Some honestly said that the stoner cats were not necessarily the best example to be a standard bearer for the industry. Gabriel Shapiro, General Counsel at Delphi Labs said, NFT trader, ex -lawyer, NFTs said, And the natural extension of that is any collectible that has a robust resale market — Jordans, baseball cards, comics, rare whiskey and wine, etc. — is potentially sold as a security. That is not the law, but it seems that the SEC is using essentially dicta in an order to creep its jurisdiction. Crypto criminal lawyer Carlos says injecting language like this into settlement seems to be a recurring pattern. To which ex -lawyer again responded, Obviously to us that's not true, but the SEC doesn't play fair and will take advantage of it. And indeed, this take that the SEC was overreaching here was by, in a way, the most common take. Marissa Tashman -Koppel, the Senior Counsel at Blockchain Association said, So now the SEC is in the business of regulating creatives and artists? Creating opportunities for ownership in the creative process is one way crypto and Web3 transforms how we interact online. The SEC shouldn't interrupt this process. Crypto lawyer Ujin writes, Hester Peirce emphasized in her dissent that the SEC's position limits legitimate ways for artists to make a living and she is right. Speculative sales of art are the basis for many sales of art, and that doesn't make those sales a security offering. Now still one more take was that we are seeing something of a positive pattern of dissent. Framework Ventures' Vance Spencer said, Peirce was on her own for a long time. Important to remember for something like an ETF approval, which requires three of five. Now staying on the theme of Gensler for a moment, it's like after the Senate hearing where he had to take some punches earlier this week, he had to go out and find a venue to get his own shots in. Appearing at a conference hosted by lobbyist group Better Markets on Wednesday, Gensler said, Millions of investors have been hurt in this field. It's an area that can hurt investors, but it can also hurt the broader economy because it can hurt investor confidence and finances ultimately built on trust. The conference was of course being held to mark the 15th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, giving Gensler plenty of opportunity for histrionics about financial risk. Gensler trotted out his usual talking points, although adjusted to consider recent criticisms raised in court. Still, there was one kind of awkward and sweet moment where the host suggested that the crypto do seem to be finding some sympathetic judges recently, to which Gensler was uncharacteristically silent in response. Now, Jason Franek from Alliance Dow really sums it up. He wrote, Now, somewhat related, while presenting a speech at a conference hosted by the Practicing Law Institute, CFTC Enforcement Director Ian McGinley pressed home his agency's antipathy towards DeFi. McGinley said, McGinley presented the complete list of CFTC victories in DeFi cases, including a settlement with prediction market PolyMarket and derivatives exchange operator UkiDao. He said, All of this is to say, the CFTC has brought groundbreaking actions in the DeFi space, standing for the proposition that when offering core derivatives products based on digital assets to the public, whether in a centralized or decentralized manner, you must comply with the law. The comments came just a week after the CFTC announced settlements with DeFi trading platforms Open, 0x, and Derridex for offering quote illegal digital asset derivatives trading. The enforcement actions were widely viewed as the regulator taking on easy targets in an attempt to send a message. Indeed, the attack on DeFi was so brazen that one dissenting commissioner even openly suggested that the CFTC was quote, creating an impossible environment for those who want to comply with the law. Bankless co -host Ryan Schott Adams tweeted, The IRS is attacking crypto, FinCEN is attacking crypto, the SEC is attacking crypto, the CFTC is attacking crypto, OFAC is attacking crypto. This is what the now they fight you phase looks like. Now speaking of the fight and not going down without one, Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong has called for DeFi protocols to take the fight to the CFTC and defend enforcement actions in court. He said in a tweet on Wednesday, The CFTC should not be creating enforcement actions against DeFi protocols. These are not financial services business and it's highly unlikely the Commodity Exchange Act even applies to them. My hope is these DeFi protocols take these cases to court to establish precedent. The courts have proven to be very willing to uphold rule of law. The only thing this is accomplishing is to push an important industry offshore. Now following last week's enforcement action against that trio of DeFi platforms, many commented that the order was a stretch of existing law. And while their cases may have been defensible, the diminutive DeFi platforms were unlikely to have had the resources to take on the US regulator, which is of course why many believe they were targeted in the first place. Now while Brian Armstrong stopped short of offering funding, many others in the space urged collective defense. Crypto law US founder John Deaton said, The industry needs to create a legal fund of some sort to help defend these winnable cases. LEO Trades amplified that, saying, Brian, if you really want to affect policy change, you and Coinbase should help create a fund for projects facing enforcement. Let's be real. Everyone is worried about the financial burden of litigation. This would honestly be a better use of resources than vague political campaigns. Now a different take was summed up by Jamison Lop, who wrote, My hope is that DeFi protocols be so decentralized that the notion of them going to court is absurd. Lawyer Jason Gottlieb wrote a thread about this as well, saying, I agree with Brian Armstrong that DeFi protocols should challenge the CFTC and SEC in court on overreaching settlement demands. The sad reality is that the agencies first attack smaller outfits for whom it makes vastly more economic sense to settle rather than litigate. We see what happens when well -funded projects go to court to fight shaky theories of DeFi liability. Cases or causes of action are dismissed, partial liability can be dropped, the dynamics are greatly changed. But the regulators start with huge advantages. They have typically worn down projects with an expensive investigation first. Even just satisfying the overbearing demands for document production in these investigations can cost six figures easily. I've said it before, I'll say it again. Every single subpoena a regulator sends to a blockchain project is one less engineering job in America and more money for lawyers. Even the lawyers who benefit from that, hi there, think that is a terrible trade -off for America. One problem is funding. The regulators can wear projects down and then offer deals that, while expensive and onerous, are better than more years of continued litigation where even if the project wins, it has massively lost time, funding runway, and momentum. Another problem is that these are people's lives. An investigation is obtrusive enough. Litigation is personally highly disruptive. For us litigators, it's just what we do, it doesn't feel bad. But for founders, devs, people just trying to build, it can feel terrible. So I would love for more DeFi projects to take the CFTC and SEC to court. And is this attorney advertising? I'd love to be the lawyer who represents them. But it costs a lot of money and it's emotionally hard. Companies that have taken on the fight have done great work protecting the space, sometimes behind the scenes in ways people won't widely know about. We need more. But not everyone is well financed and in a fighting mood. So we need to support the smaller projects financially and otherwise. Everyone who believes in the efficiency, privacy, and self -control advantages of digital assets is in this fight together. The battle over the future of crypto is the battle over the future of all digital assets. And since more and more of our lives are digital, that's more and more of our lives. This fight is far more important than when moon antics. It is literally the battle for the future of your digital life. The legal battles over digital assets are the battles over the direction of our collective future. Here, here. I think I will let Jason have the last word on that one because I can't do any better. I appreciate all you guys listening. And until next time, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.
Mark Levin Criticizes Matt Gaetz Over His Threats on Kevin McCarthy
"If need you to shut the government down to stop the Senate and to stop the radicals, I've got it. But you've got to explain to the American people exactly what you're doing because a lot of people are standing, including these various conservative organizations that are created within who Republican caucus apparently are not in agreement on something. How do you fix that? How do you negotiate with that? That's part of the problem. You need a united front, but you have to have a united front that stands for something. I hope our friends at CPI are paying attention. My old buddy Jim DeMint. I'm sure he's got an invisible hand here. Jim, you've got your people to get organized here. With this guy, I've never met Roberts at the Heritage Foundation. I don't know a whole lot about him, but he likes to play Washington politics now. If these guys are going to play the game, they've really got to get good at it, because right now it's very difficult to see what exactly they're fighting. I know, cut the spending 100%. But what are the other priorities? You can't have 10 of them. Chip and Roy and I discussed this. They understand you can't have three, four, five, six priorities. You've got to have one or two and get behind them. All right, I'm done explaining to these guys how to do their jobs. Kevin McCarthy at a press conference today, another reporter, another CNNer. I think it's Raju Handu. What is it? Kevin. AP, excuse me. All the same to me. Associated Depressed. Cut eight, go. Congressman Issa came out and said that both Chairman Jordan and Comer not were able to present anything that was an impeachable offense at this point. Is that an assessment that you share? You know, we're impeachment inquiry is not impeachment. So what impeachment inquiry is to do is to get answers to questions.
A highlight from How to Defund Jack Smith with Rep. Jim Jordan

A highlight from Legend
"And welcome back to cinema vino. We've got a two man game going. It's me and Sean Jordan. Just one little handshake over here. Coming at you. We're like a garage band, two members just coming at you with some hard rock. Tenacious D. Yeah, exactly. Or the black keys, the white stripes. Yeah. Yeah. Both of those. Yeah. Yeah. There you go. Summer Chaos is now, this is the home stretch. Mine Meg. If this is the white stripes. Yeah. I think you're going to have to be. All right. Yeah. You're holding down, you're playing. Lying down the ones and the twos. Yeah. You're playing the quarter notes. That's about it. Yup. No fills. Which is how I like my drums anyway. She made the notes in the vamp up to the chorus. A little bit. That was one of the first songs I learned. There was a little bit of flavor. It was like a rice cake with a little bit of salt on it. Not a lot of salt, but a little bit of salt. Yup. So, this is a penultimate episode of Summer of Chaos. We're going to talk about legend. No, it's not penultimate. We've got this and then we've got Battle Royale. Oh, and then Dread. You're right. Dread. So, this is. And Robocop. This is penultimate to the penultimate. Yeah. Penultimate recording. And then I think Robocop's a gap. It's just kind of in between. Right. We just toss it in just because it sounds. Gap here. Yeah. Just a little bit of something to fill in. It's like a caulk that we used in between some tiles. Don't like that. But that's the metaphor I went for and there you go. It's a grout, ladies and gentlemen. Yeah. Drinking that imagery, won't you? So, we're going to talk about legend with Tom Cruise and we're drinking some white board dough. For those of you who are coming in late to this series, basically, we do a random wheel. We spin a wheel. We put a bunch of varietals on the wheel and also like beer and cocktails. Whatever the wheel picks, that's what we do for the Summer of Chaos. These movies were all picked out at random. We put random movies in the hat, drew them out. So, pretty much anything goes for this entire summer. And so, same thing with wine. Anything goes. So, for this one, we got white Bordeaux. This is Chateau La Fresnel. This is a 2022 white Bordeaux. Little bit of background for those who may not know. We were actually talking about this before the podcast that Bordeaux is now known as a red wine region. But up until about 50, 60 years ago, it was a white wine region. It was known for its white grapes. Bordeaux are going to be... White Bordeaux are primarily Sauvignon Blanc with some Simeon and some Muscadel. There's a few other grapes they mix in there, but those are the main three that you're going to see. Then they're mainly Sauvignon Blancs. Is this kind of like how like the Republican Party and the Democratic Party kind of switched identities somewhere in the like 40s, 50s? Around the New Deal? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Basically. Now, it's like five, six to one red wines to white. It used to be the opposite. You'll also see a type of wine made from these same grapes called a Sauternes, which is going to be... It's made completely differently. It's going to be a lot sweeter, a lot more sugary. Those are very fancy, high -end, expensive white wines. So, basically, just from the price tag alone, you'll never confuse a Sauternes with a white Bordeaux. These are going to be more affordable, you know, $15, $20 range. Not super sweet. It's a little more tart, a little peachy? Dry. And the first thing I think of is Sauvignon Blanc. And these will have some characteristics of the same characteristics of other Sauvignon Blancs in the world. They're going to be a little bit grassy, a little bit citrusy, grapefruity. They're going to have some of those same kind of flavors to them. The main thing that's going to distinguish these wines is going to be... I've heard it referred to as minerality. I've heard it referred to as wet concrete. I've heard it referred to as chalk. Tasty. Yeah, limestone. But kind of that dry, refreshing edge that you don't necessarily find in other parts of the world. Kind of like what brings the harshness of mineral water versus the softness of tap. Yeah, exactly. That's a good way to put that. Yeah. It's got like a bite to it. It's got kind of like a... Little edge. Yeah. And you don't find that... Like for example, New Zealand's often been known as grapefruit bombs. Big fruit bombs. And you don't see that as much. This is my favorite region for Sauvignon Blanc. They're balanced. That's why I love French wines in general. They don't go out of the way in any one direction. They're nice and balanced. And so it's great for that. This one has that nice... It's got some grassiness to it. It's got some fruit. But it's dry. And so this would be great. I mean, people say seafood. I'm not a big seafood fan, but kind of a lighter seafood meal is perfect for that. You're not a big seafood fan? Not a big seafood fan. Period? Not really. Shrimp? I mean, I don't mind shrimp. It's not my first thing I go to. Lobster. Yeah, same. Bass. Catfish. I don't mind catfish. I've had some catfish. That's garbage. Catfish is garbage. But I remember when we went to Barcelona, we took a cooking class. It was on our honeymoon. My wife and I, we did a... It was all seafood. We had some paella. We made some paella. We did octopus. We did squid. I mean, we tried the gamut of seafood stuff that they had in the Mediterranean. It was like... That was a good indication. It's like, I don't like this. This is not for me. Yeah, not my taste. It's fair. It's fair. But I will say that we did a wine kind of similar to this, a Spanish white. And yeah, this would be perfect with a wide variety of seafood. Some of the stuff that's bigger and more buttery, you might want to go for a white burgundy, like a chard. But this is a good hot weather, outdoor type of wine. It's nice and refreshing. I like it a lot. Yeah, 25 bucks, not a whole lot of money. But yeah, any good wine store, you should be able to find a nice white Bordeaux section. So look for those while the weather's still warm. But now, legend. Talk about this movie a bit. This was released in the United States April 18th, 1986. So... You say in the United States. Where did it come out before? It was released in Europe the year before. This had a very difficult production. This was a difficult movie to realize. It has a lot going on. So this grossed worldwide $23 million against a $25 million budget. In 86? That's a big budget. Huge. And for several reasons. A big reason for that is that when they started filming, a fire broke out and burned down the 007 studios where they were filming at Leaves in England. So pretty much had to build new sets. That's probably all the magic. Exactly. Yeah, some of the Sprite costumes caught fire. Or the unicorn hair. I can imagine, yeah. It's one wrong look, that unicorn horn. Yeah, it's gone. But they had to build new sets. And Ridley Scott's original cut of the movie ran for between two and a half, three hours. So... Jeez. And the final cut was like, what, hour and a half? Yeah. The version that I watched, I don't know if you saw the original 89 -minute version or if you watched the director's cut. I think I watched the 89 version. Okay, I looked around. I had trouble finding it. That's the version I know the best, so I went back to that one. The director's cut? No, the original. Oh, the original. Yeah. There's a director's cut out there. Is it like two to three hours? No. So basically, when the final cut of this print was released, Ridley Scott watched this cut and freaked out and thought that basically American audience couldn't grasp this much plot. And so he cut the film basically in half, down to 89 minutes. And when it came out, it got mediocre reviews. Obviously, he didn't do well at the box office. He just watered it down too much? Yeah. Gene Siskel put this as one of his worst movies of that year. And the international cut that came out the year before was 93 minutes. And it got a little bit better reviews, but still not great. And then in 2002, somebody found a full work print of the movie in a can somewhere. And so they took that out and restored it, remastered it, and really Scott added about 25 minutes to the cut that the director's cut. So it comes in at like 115 minutes, give or take. And he and Tom Cruise have gone on the record saying that's the version to see. I was going to say, I was reading that Tom Cruise saw the movie in theaters and was like, that's not the movie we filmed. Yeah. That's not it. I mean, you could imagine with that much cut out, it's going to be almost incoherent. It's like a whole other act. Yeah. Yeah. And so basically, the director's cut, yeah, it's a whole other fleshed out thing. And I have seen that once. I saw it when it came out. I think I've got that on DVD somewhere. And the one thing I would say is it does, it adds a few scenes. It makes the motivations a little bit deeper, especially for the character of the darkness and his relationship with the princess, Lily, and the stuff there. It's kind of just, not to cut to the chase, but it just kind of comes out of nowhere. He's just like obsessed with her. He's just like, oh, I must have her. It feels very rushed. It feels like a plot of necessity, not like a plot of, you know, any reason. They're just like, we need to stall him. How do we do it? Love interest. Yeah. And it's like, it's like I'm telling a story to my three -year -old and it's like, I got to kind of get something else in here. You got to kind of yada, yada, yada over motivations. We're coming in for a landing too quick. We got to just shoot. Pull up. Yeah. But so basically, this is a fairly straightforward fantasy story. Tom Cruise plays Jack, who is a protector of the forest. I was a little vague on what exactly he is. Is he a bard? Is he a ranger? I mean, he'd be more druid than anything. Is he a druid? Yeah, I couldn't place what he was supposed to be. It's like, this is where we need Travis. Yeah, he would be. And if Travis had an answer to that, I would be impressed. Because to me, they don't spell that out at all. I guess he would be more of a ranger. Yeah. Because he didn't really have any sort of like shape -shifting ability or had any ability to talk with trees. Really, his only thing was he had like one -on -one connection with the sprites, right? That's about it. Yeah, he had good buddies. A working relationship. And he wore a loincloth. Yes. So there was that. Dude, he was showing that thing off. He was. And that's what I, you know, in that situation, it's like, check out my hairless legs. My supine body. Yeah, check out these smooth legs. But, so Mia Sarah plays Lily. Now, this is her starring debut. Next year, she would go on to play in Ferris Bueller, amongst other things. Her hair when she transforms into a dark version. Awesome. Now, this great production value is great. Everything, costumes, hair. For 25 million, it better be. Yeah. Yeah. And those are real unicorns. Yeah, they better be. Yeah, I mean, now it's like, that'd be 100 million plus to make this thing. Easy. Easy. Easy. So yeah, Lord of Darkness, played by Tim Curry, who is unrecognizable in the mountain of makeup. Honestly, but might be one of my favorite representations of the devil. Yeah. Like, this makeup job is incredible. And in theory, we'll get to this later, that should be great casting to have Tim Curry. Yeah. I almost want to see more of Tim Curry in the face. Like, see more of him, you know. Almost, you know, Faustian devil and Daniel Webster kind of thing, where it's like, you can see like him being rascally or whatever. But yeah, so Lord of Darkness seeks to cover the world in darkness. Plot out the sun. Conveniently, yeah. Typical plot device. For that, he needs the horn of a unicorn, which is the most sacred and majestic of all fantastic creatures. Basically, he wants to take the unicorns out of the world, take the horns out of the world, and the world. The representation of purity. The horn of the unicorn. Yes. The world goes dark. Everything turns into kind of a barren, frigid tundra of darkness. He just has goblins that work for him inexplicably? Yeah, incompetent goblins. Yeah. It's nice. But they rhyme. They talk in riddles. They do. They do rhyme. But you know, he kind of has the James Bond villain of incompetent people working under him, you know. If anything, that's the thing that slows him down as much as, you know, these James Bond villains. Like, you hired a bunch of idiots. He also has, like, the Bond villain thing of, like, doing a lot of monologuing? Yes. Let me vamp for five minutes while you prepare your thing to destroy me. Yeah, let's me blather.
Mark Levin Criticizes Republicans Who Are Anti-Impeachment
"In at least three of my books, and you can find that in my endnotes. I don't expect the same from people who don't do their homework. That's a separate issue. So when you hear people like Matt Gaetz, I'm putting the budget aside. We're going to have Chris Roy on here. We're going to have a good talk about the budget. Chip Roy. But when you hear Matt Gaetz going on about that this is a diversion by the speaker, I've had about enough of that. I'm so pissed off have you no idea that these Republicans, even so -called conservatives, can't coalesce around impeachment inquiry? That is overdue? Are you kidding me? I don't know what their agenda is. It's not a conservative agenda. That's number one. Number two, I am sick and tired of hearing people like Ken Buck and others say there's no evidence of an impeachable offense. There's no evidence that Joe Biden took any money. The Democrat Party saying this? The media are saying this? That's not the test for impeachment. And I want to encourage James Comer, I want to encourage my dear friend Jim Jordan, I want to encourage, what's the other guy's name, Smith of House Ways and Means Committee, you need to broaden here. Yes, continue to look into what you are, financial crimes, profiteering and so forth. But here's where I want to provide you with information, here's where I want to educate these members of Congress. The media are liars and they know it, but we'll educate them along the way too. And Mr. Buck. Thank
A highlight from Matthew: The Baptism Of Jesus Christ
"The very last book in the Old Testament, the very last book, the book of Malachi, literally the last four or five verses, it says this. It says, Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. Behold, this is the last verses in the whole Old Testament. Behold, Elijah is coming, or at least his spiritual successor. I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the day of the Lord, the great and dreadful day of the Lord, and he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children of the fathers, lest they come to strike the earth with a curse. The last verses in the Old Testament said keep on the lookout, keep on the lookout. There's one coming, and when he comes, he's going to prepare the way, which is what Isaiah said, too. I'm going to send one, one from the wilderness is going to come to prepare the way for the Lord, to prepare the way for the king, which is something they had to do back in the days. Literally, if the king was going to visit, they had to clear the street and the paths and the like so that the carts or the chairs or whatnot could get down without any issues. Whatever the case is, Elijah was anticipated from centuries past to return, and he returns in the form of John the Baptist as the spiritual successor. Now, what was John doing before we look at verses 13 and 14, before we move into the text, really? What is he doing? Well, we know he's baptizing. He's baptizing individuals here. So what kind of baptism is this? Did they have baptism in the Old Testament? Did they have it? Well, yes, but it was different. They had something called proselyte baptism. Let's say that you're a Moabite, and you say, you know, I really like Israel. I like the food and the culture, and I love their God. Their God seems so much better than the gods we got over here. I think I would like to become Jewish. I'd like to convert. So what was the process for that? Well, the process was baptism. It was called proselyte baptism. If someone from another culture wanted to convert into Judaism, and God was pleased to pull from the nations. If you're a Gentile here this morning, you're an example of this. God was pleased to pull from the nations, and when they pulled from the nations, when people converted, so to speak, to Judaism, the principal action that they undertook was to be baptized or washed as a sign, as a type, of washing away their pagan beliefs and their wicked ways and the like. So they did have something called baptism, but it wasn't baptism in the sense that we might understand it. It was for new converts. Well, this is not what's going on here. John is baptizing Jews. See, this is different. Now, some people say, well, what's going on is ceremonial washings. If you look in the Old Testament, they were washing all the time, which I guess if I lived in the desert, I'd probably want to do that, too. They were trying to wash, and some of it was probably just for the obvious reasons of getting clean, and then other reasons were ceremonial. If you were a priest, and, you know, before you put on your tall, pointy hat, and you did your priestly duties, you might consecrate yourself and wash yourself. So they had ceremonial washings throughout the Old Testament, but that's not what this is either. It's not a baptism of converts, and it's not ceremonial washings. It's something different, and it's something new. So what is it? Let's look. Let's look at verses 13 and 14 now, and I'll work our way through that smaller balance of verses, and we'll try to come away with a better understanding of what baptism is and why Jesus, of all people, underwent it. Verse 13, that Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him, and John tried to prevent him, saying, I need to be baptized by you, and are you coming to me? All right. As verse 13 begins, there's a reference to two very distinct geographical locations. Now, when we read these terms, we just lump them all in together. He went from Galilee to the Jordan. When I first used to read that text, I don't know if that was like four blocks away. I didn't know how to picture this. Having actually been there, I have some understanding, and it couldn't be more stark where Jesus came from to where he was going. He went from Galilee, the Sea of Galilee, and everything around the sea is lush and green and there's rolling hillsides, and it's just beautiful. Whatever you picture to be the land of milk and honey, that's what Galilee is. However, that's not where John was. John was way down to the south. John was to the southeast -ish of Jerusalem out towards the Dead Sea, and it has earned its name. This area is not an area that is attractive. It is not lush. It is not green. There's no milk. There's no honey. This is not the area that you would take vacations to. It's not an area you would otherwise go, and yet all these people were going there because that's where John was. The spiritual successor of Elijah came out of the wilderness, Elijah the Tishbite. Here we have John the Baptist, and God has evidently laid a prophetic mantle upon him. Everyone's coming to where he's at, even though otherwise it wouldn't be in a big hurry to go there. Well, Jesus goes there too. He goes from Galilee from where it's lush, and he travels, what was a number of days at the least, down to Jordan, down towards near Jericho. Now, why? Why did he do this? Well, we see the answer in verse 13. He comes to be baptized. Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized. Now, as we said before, we have to stop and we have to camp out here for a moment. Jesus. Who is Jesus? It starts with a G. He's God. So Jesus is God in the flesh, God incarnate, Son of God, one of the members of the Trinity. If you look at Jesus, you're looking at God, right? So here we see that God wants to come down and be baptized by a fallen man, that God wants to be baptized. What's going on here? Now, if you looked around the rest of the crowd, if you looked at everyone else all milling around, they all needed to be baptized. They needed to be washed clean, and not only be washed clean, but they needed to act accordingly in the days yet to come because their past was filthy and sin -ridden. Everyone there had sins. Even John the Baptist had sinned. And so Jesus comes to him, and to John, it's like, it does not compute. This doesn't make sense why you are doing this. And so he responds and tells Jesus, we're not doing it. I must have misheard you. We're not doing that. You don't need to be baptized by me, but clearly I need to be baptized by you. Now, did John know who Jesus was? I think there's plenty of reason to suspect that. He at least knew him as a cousin. Did he know him as the Messiah? I think the answer to that is clear. I think if you look at Luke, Mary and Elizabeth, they were cousins. Mary and Elizabeth were pregnant at the same time, and Mary goes to visit Elizabeth, and Elizabeth is pregnant. The child's a little more advanced in months, but they're both pregnant. And what does the child in Elizabeth's womb, what does John the Baptist in the womb do just at the proximity to Jesus? He leaps, jumps for joy. I can't imagine that's a lot of fun for the mother, but whatever the case is, there's movement, there's jumping, there's leaping, there's joy. Somehow, in some way, just by the mere proximity to the Messiah, John the Baptist understood, or at least by his nature, reacted to the proximity to this one. Beyond that, he identifies even in this text that one is coming, that I'm not even worthy to tie his sandals. Later, when he sees on the river, he says, Behold, the Lamb of God comes to take away the sin of the world. There's every reason to believe. He knows exactly who this Jesus was. So Jesus approaches him here, and the one who he identifies as the Messiah says, I need you to baptize me. So John, of course, tries to decline that. Jesus will have none of it. Let's look at verse 15. But Jesus answered and said to him, Permit it to be so. In other words, let's do it. Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.
A highlight from The Debut of NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube
"Welcome everyone to SI Media with Jimmy Traina. I am your host, Jimmy Traina. Thank you so much for listening. Bonus episode, bonus podcast on this Monday after the first Sunday of the NFL season.

And Sal Licata, who joins me every week for Train of Thoughts from WFAN in New York and SNY TV in New York, joins me where we share our experiences with Sunday Ticket on YouTube, getting it set up, what we thought of it, full review, full breakdown of everything, what you need to know about it, what their differences are if you have YouTube TV, if you have cable, full breakdown of everything all related to NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube. That's what this pod is with Sal. It's like a full -blown Train of Thoughts. So listen to Sal and I discuss it, come back later in the week for a regular episode.

Charles Barkley was on recently, Peter Schrager, Chris Russo. Check all those pods out. Subscribe to SI Media with Jimmy Traina. And this is one of two episodes this week. All right, let's get to it now with Sal. Full episode here on NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube. All right here right now on SI Media with Jimmy Traina. Welcome everyone to SI Media with Jimmy Traina. Thanks for listening. Bonus episode this week. This will be one of two. We're taping this on Monday after the first week of the NFL season, the debut of the new Sunday Ticket on Yahoo, on Yahoo. What a dope. On YouTube, on YouTube, I had to get on with Sal and we're just gonna riff about our Sunday Ticket experiences in week one. Sal, how are you? I'm great and I'm excited to have this conversation with you because we've had this many times over the years at dinner, at our houses, whatever, discussing this exact thing. And we both, I know, had great experiences yesterday. So I'm looking forward to talking about it with you. Well, let's start with this. There are many, many train of thought segments on this podcast over the last three months where you said you were not going to get Sunday Ticket. You were not going to get it. You're just focusing on the New York teams. And then I got the text message. Let's see here if I can find the text message. Even, even early, I noticed you were starting to cave a little bit earlier this week. Actually, 9 .34 a .m. on Sunday, I'm still on the fence. And then at 10 .45 a .m., the text came in from Sal. I'm in. It's like Michael Jordan returning to the NBA. I know. I thought about writing to you. I'm back. I was thinking about it as the week went on. I told you, like, because of the lineup with the playing Giants Sunday and the Jets playing Monday, that to me made it worse. Or you were saying, oh, well, you're going to have the national games. Yeah. But knowing that I didn't have to watch those games at that time made it more appealing for me to get the get the Sunday ticket. So I kind of thought I'd be going that way. And then Sunday morning I was like, fuck it. Let me just get this thing in. It's worth the money. Let me see what it's all about. And is it great. So so let me do a little preamble here before we get into it, because I want to say this and let me know if you agree, disagree. But before we even discuss this, I think what we need to establish is this. How you feel about Sunday ticket, whether it's direct TV, YouTube, the changes or it's it's going to depend on how you watch football, number one, and it's going to depend on what services you have. Now, for instance, Sal has direct TV. I have I don't have direct TV. Oh, oh, you have optimum cable. Correct. OK. Optimum cable. You were scamming the direct TV Sunday ticket all these years. That's right. All right. I did have direct TV. Right. And this is an important part of it. I don't want to gloss over it. And then I moved into the city and I was not allowed to get direct TV. So what they did was allow me to stream Sunday tickets. So I have been able to stream Sunday ticket for several years. So whether you have optimum like Sal, I have Verizon, Fios. Some people have direct TV. Some people don't have any cable. They have streaming services. That's a factor in all this. And then the other thing that I think added so much confusion over the last couple of weeks and is early yesterday there's also this huge Sunday ticket is different based on whether you have YouTube TV or you're just using YouTube. Now, Sal and I both have cable, so we're just using YouTube. If you have YouTube TV, the experience is different. So there's a lot of layers to this. It's very convoluted. I'm going to do my best to try to break it down for you now. So the biggest thing is this. If you have YouTube TV, you're good to go with Sunday ticket with your in -market and out -of -market games. You have nothing to worry about. If you don't have YouTube TV, like Sal and I, you're not getting the local market game. So on Sunday here in New York, Steelers, Niners was on Fox at one o 'clock. Browns, Bengals was on CBS at one o 'clock. Those games are not part of our Sunday ticket packages on YouTube. If you have YouTube TV, they were. So if you don't have YouTube TV and you just have YouTube, you have to have more than one television. I think if you want to watch all the games, if you care about one team, you're fine. You really do need to have two TVs because what I did was I had on my big TV, the multi -view with the four games. And on the second TV, I had one of the local games because that's how you have to do it. So, so far I weigh in on what I've said so far. Yes. Okay. Question here. Number one, if I had YouTube TV, do I then get the local games as part of the game mix? Yes. Oh, shit. See, so I may consider then, I don't know if I'm realistically going to do it, but that to me is like the number one thing that's been missing forever on the prior service. And now that I cannot have, because like you, I like to have the game mix and the four box grid, but it automatically takes out whatever local game is on. And I hate that. So here in New York, we could not get a four game multi -view that had either Steelers Niners or Browns Bengals in it on Sunday. Cause those are in market games. So there was no multi -view whether it was four games, three games that had those games in it. If you had YouTube TV, those games were part of the multi -view. So you, so you, so you would consider getting rid of optimum and getting YouTube TV. Well, I didn't know that that was the case. I mean, I probably, truth be told, I'll never be a cord cutter, but if I were to get it in addition, it might be worth it at least just for the season. Now I screwed up because I bought the ticket. Although I guess you have this period now where it's kind of, um, you know, the tree trial period and I can make a decision at the end of the week, but, uh, I'd rather than go back and get the ticket much cheaper if you buy YouTube TV, I think. Right. You know, YouTube TV is like $80 a month. It's like a cable service.
A highlight from 41: 2023 Predictions!
"Welcome to the Ultra Flex Football Podcast where we have fun with our friends while we talk about football and any anything else we wanna talk about. We're here for season two. I don't know if we're officially calling it season two but this is our second season of talking about NFL football. So, we're back. With me as always is Rob Green. What's up? And Ryan Wheeler. Howdy, howdy. Season two episode one is what it's officially gonna be titled and Tony, I told you not to talk so close to the mic, man. You like, blew out my eardrums there at the beginning but I just get excited. I know. You're so excited. You get excited so easily. We were talking about that before we like, actually started recording but anywho, uh so, we do that thing where we have an album and we split up the songs in the album and we try to get the song titles into the show as discreetly as possible. Sometimes not as discreet as we'd like to think we are but we're gonna give you our titles that way you know what to listen for. See how many you can catch. Just a little game within our show. My song titles, the album first of all is called Down to Earth by Jimmy Buffet. Rest in peace, Jimmy Buffet. It's his first album. Down to Earth. The songs that I have to get in are The Christian, LSD, The Missionary, and A Mile High in Denver. Rob, what do you got? Alright, I have the captain and the kid, Captain America, Ain't He a Genius, and Turnabout. Alright, and Sir Anthony. I've got There's Nothing Soft about Hard Times, I Can't Be Your Hero Today, and Truck Stop Salvation. So, we'll see if we can get all of those in. Uh most of the episode today is gonna be football. It's uh we we were doing some things during the off season to help pass time. Uh you know, Ultra Flex After Dark and having some fun with games and things like that but football season is here. Uh we're gonna be doing football talk here in a second where we're gonna pick our division of winners. We're gonna pick our Super Bowl, MVP, and then we're gonna pick week one games and then we'll have one game at the end. So, uh football, football, football. So, let's get it started with football talk. Just that really amps you up, doesn't it? Golly, that was good. It puts me in the football mood. It just, it feels like we're kind of, you know, whimsical, a little bit of uh goofy when we talk. So, I thought that was a good one for football, our football talk. Let's, let's start with, in my opinion, the less competitive conference which would be the NFC. Uh maybe you guys think differently. Um but let's go with NFC West. We'll skim over this if we all agree pretty quickly. Uh I'll go first. This one and then we'll just kinda alternate uh as we jump divisions but uh for me, the NFC West is the 49ers winning this division. Um I think they're the best team in the NFC. Any chance we can like we go NFC West that includes the that way for people that don't necessarily have the NFC West on the top of their head you're just gonna see that includes like the 49ers, Seahawks, Cardinals, uh Rams. Yeah, you just you just did it. Yeah, we can do it. Okay. Nailed it. Yeah. So, 49ers, Seahawks, uh Cardinals, Rams. For me, Cardinals, Rams are both gonna be pretty not so great. Comes out of the Seahawks and 49ers and I just think the 49ers are a better roster. Brian? Oh, it's next. Um I'm gonna go with the 49ers. I just think top to bottom, the roster is the best. Rob? Yeah, I agree but I wanna be different. So, give me the Seahawks. We hated on him last year. We picked him to be like what? One and sixteen I think cuz we thought they were terrible. Gino Smith's gonna continue his uh career turnaround, turn about. I don't know if I can use that here. And uh. And he's gonna lead them to a division title. Alright. They have the offensive weapons to do it though. They definitely have the offensive weapons. Maybe Brock Purdy isn't as good as he looked at the end of last year. We'll see. He doesn't have to be. They have Sam Darnold as the backup. I don't think that's why he doesn't have to be good but anyway. Yeah. I think he has enough weapons and Kyle Shanahan around him that will make him. Exactly it. Make him look good. Uh Ryan, I'll let you go first this time. We're talking about the NFC North. So, we got the Lions, the Packers, the Bears, and the Vikings. Who do you have winning that? The NFC North, I have the Packers taking that division. It kinda just feels like a crapshoot division honestly. I mean, I don't really feel good about my pick. I don't feel about picking any, good about picking any of those teams. So, I just want Jordan Love to be good because he's got an awesome name and quite honestly, that's that's how I came up with my answer. So, I was like, got the guy that has love in his name. I'm pretty sure from looking at this division, the odds are the closest bunch of four out of all the the division. Makes sense. So, it kind of is the most wide open division, I think. Who do you have? Yeah, who do you have picking, Rob? You know, our team last year was the Lions. So, I'm gonna I'm gonna bring that over to this year. Let's go with the Lions too. I don't even know the last time they won the division. Nineties probably. Early 90s, mid 90s. If they did then. I just don't know either. I think we'll find out pretty early AKA we're filming this on a Monday before the season starts. So, we'll find out in 3 days whether or not they'll be a pretty good team again which they have enough talent on the offense to put up points. It'll just. Yeah, what are we thinking like 60 points in that first game here with the Lions and Chiefs? It's gonna be a high score game. Probably, yeah. Yeah, no Chris Jones for the Chiefs and then the Lions don't really have much of anybody on defense. Um that means that yeah, they did what they took that linebacker. I can't think of his name right now. Um. The guy that everybody won the bills. Jack Campbell. Jack Campbell. Yeah. Yeah. Um but I agree. I have power on offense to be the best team in that division but I wouldn't would I be shocked if the Vikings or the Packers or even the Bears for that matter were to win it. Probably not. So, I'll go with the Lions. Uh the NFC East another compelling division. Got three and a half maybe. I don't know about Washington. Good teams. Um which the Cowboys, the Eagles, uh the commanders, and the Giants. Rob, who do you have winning the NFC East? Yeah, I like the Eagles. I think they're the best team in the NFC and I think they showed that last year. I think they'll do that again this year. Jalen Hurts continues his uh breakout. I won't say an MVP season but he could have another MVP caliber season like he did last year. Yeah, mine's gonna be the Eagles as well. I think their roster. While the Cowboys and Giants are gonna probably both win nine, ten games. I think the Eagles are just good enough to win eleven or twelve games and and win that division. So, Ryan, what about you? Yeah, I'm gonna be different and go uh Cowboys um not because I wanna be different but because I actually think the Cowboys are I think they have a better defense and I think their offense maybe not as good but I think they have a good offense and uh quite honestly, both these teams have pretty cake schedules. Um the Rob and I were talking about it earlier. Um sorry, we left you out of this conversation, Tony but the uh the Cowboys or I'm sorry, the the Eagles first was like seven games are the Patriots, Vikings, Buccaneers, Commanders, Rams, Jets, Dolphins, and then commanders again. It's like it's not that difficult. It could be six and one, seven and all. Yeah. And then the Cowboys was very similar. Like last year. So, it kinda feels like whoever wins this division is probably gonna win it with twelve. Twelve wins. Somewhere around there. Eleven, twelve. So, I just, I'm just gonna go Cowboys on that. That's gonna be a lot of my points in the AFC uh which we'll talk about in a second uh which is how hard all of their schedules are but uh last division um the NFC side is the NFC South. Could be the worst division in football. Uh we got the Saints, the Bucks, the Falcons, and the Panthers.
A highlight from Trollhunter
"And welcome back to cinema vino, but it's good to have you guys here with us. That's good to be here. We got Sean Jordan, but it's your boy. And my name is Todd Wofford. And it's good to be here. Summer chaos continues. We're down on our home stretch wrapping it up. We just got a couple more movies to go. Yeah, we don't have long to go. We're almost at the Labor Day weekend. It's almost through September. It's time. Put away all my white outfits and just move on with life. So yeah. Do you put away the white album too? Do you stop listening to it? I do. I go for the gray album after Labor Day. So I go with Jay -Z. DJ Danger Mouse. I go Black Album. DJ Danger Mouse. DJ Danger Mouse. DJ Danger Mouse. Jame Judy Dench. Jame Judy Dench. If I hear Yamo be there one more time. So beautiful Michael McDonald. That's a great baritone by the way. Grace Baritone and all the rock. You know all the words. I hate Michael McDonald. Yeah. What about the Doobie Brothers? I like the Doobie Brothers pre Michael McDonald. Okay. I had like the best of Doobie Brothers CD and like disc one. Awesome. Disc two. Awful. Yeah. Okay. So anyway, so we are drinking Riesling and we're talking about Troll Hunter. Oh, this is lovely Riesling. Yeah. German Riesling. Yeah. It's just German. Couldn't find a Swedish Riesling? They're out there somewhere, I'm sure. Norwegian. So obviously Summer Chaos to bring guys up to speed. We spin a random wheel or we picked random movies and then we spin a random wheel and pick a random wine to go with them. So this is all just. Or spirit. Or spirit or beer. It's willy nilly. Anything goes. Or Todd gets bored and just makes it some seven sevens that are like oddly strong. We don't actually see the process of Todd picking booze. So sometimes it's just like you guys are drinking rum. Sometimes you're not meant to see how the sausage gets made. I think he definitely has put like a finger in every single drink that he's given to me. A hundred percent. More than one. Smells like a sweaty hot dog. Yeah. Sometimes I go full bowling ball in there. So it adds to the three fingers. Three finger profile. That's a bad name. Tastes like Todd's fingers. We all three finger profile. Tastes like what Todd's fingers have been in. That's going to be the first line of my autobiography. It's the terroir. It is the terroir. So we're going to talk about the wine a little bit from the start. I got my notes right here all ready for you. Riesling is known primarily as a German rattle but you'll see it grown in a lot of other places such as Australia, France, the US and Canada. Australia is actually your second biggest rower of Riesling. Rieslings have a reputation as a sweet white wine but you actually got a pretty good wide variety of between dry and off dry. Pretty much any kind of flavor profile of white wine there's a Riesling in that range somewhere. Alsatian wines tend to be on very dry side from France. And then... This one's a little off dry, right? Yeah. This one definitely falls kind of in the between area. And then you go all the way up to Trokenberne Auslese which is going to be just sticky sweet. I mean just like... Hot sticky sweet. Yeah. I'm hot. Sticky sweet. From my hand to my feet. Yeah. Like Todd's fingers. So for food pairings you're going to put this with Asian foods, Indian foods, any kind of spicy dish. With the sugary sweetness of the wine will definitely kind of balance things out for you. Rieslings are coming usually at a good price point. They can be anywhere from $10 to $25. They don't tend to be crazy expensive. You drink them obviously very chilled but any kind of a bold spicy dish you can do a Riesling with. But you can also do them with holiday meals, kind of lighter cuisine. So like... You're actually going to get to do a Riesling tasting in Germany in November. Ooh. That's right. You're going across the pond. That's right. Pinkies up. Pinkies up. That's going to be fun. Yeah. I'll be able to taste it straight off the vine. You have to take lots of pictures. Yeah. Lots of pictures of Zavino. If I come back with Wiederhosen I'm going to be so happy. I would be disappointed if you don't. Yeah. In a big old box of shrooms. So this is going to be... Let me see if I can pronounce this correctly. Correctly. This is A .C. Chrisman, Faltz Riesling. Yes. I'm working on my like great escape like Nazi Gestapo for... accent Sandre. It's really about Bono. Weingutzeit. Yeah. Weingutzeit. That's like the quality. This is like a high quality Riesling. I think in German that literally translates to wine good. Yeah. Good wine. Yeah. It's like this is one of the top quality Rieslings that you can get. So about 25 bucks. And yeah. This one's going to be definitely kind of in between off dries where I put this one. It's definitely not sticky sweet. It's definitely not bone dry. But yeah. A little scale for you. If you're shopping for Rieslings from dry to sweet, you've got cabinet, which is K -A -B -I -N -E -T -T, spätlese, auslese, berna auslese, trocken berna auslese, and eiswein. So that's what you're looking at on the shelf. That's from dry to sweet. And this one's trocken, right? Yeah. Well, yeah. This is going to be... Well, that's a trocken berna auslese. So this is going to be kind of in between. So this is not quite the berna auslese. So this is going to be more towards the cabinet spätlese side of sweetness. This will be... So go for cabinet if you're looking for dry. Go for auslese if you're looking for pretty sweet. And then once you get up to berna auslese, it's going to be just hummingbird feed sweet. So this one definitely has some good solid like sugar to it. But I do give Riesling to my hummingbirds. They fly sideways. And then they have a great afternoon. Those wings slow wading. When they get drunk really fast and then they also sober up equally as fast. It's that heartbeat that just goes 100 miles a minute. But they can't hit that feeder once they get drunk. They can't get that beak in there. They self -regulate, you know? Yeah. Well, nature does that for them. They flap one wing at a time. They just got to... They're going to leave edibles out for the squirrels. Oh, that's great. Don't give me ideas. So Trollhunter, a little background on this one. This is your pick, Drat, right? Yeah. Sadly, I didn't know I was coming tonight. So I never got... Long story short, I'm watching my niece this week. She's two and a half. And I woke up at 5 .15 today. So that's, you know... Where am I? Yeah. So sadly, I didn't get to watch this again before this, but I've seen it twice. Lovely young lady. Yeah. I can't remember what happens at the end. I was going to say, when was the last time you watched it? Not too terribly long ago. So this may be... It's educational for you. In the last two years, I want to say. Okay. So a little bit about Trollhunter. This was released October 29th, 2010. So long ago. That was almost 13 years ago. Gross. Yeah. Actually, I got to say, I think I watched this probably in 2011, 2012. So it had to have been pretty recently after it came out. Because this was a magnet release, which they did a lot of straight to DVD stuff, picked up stuff that was on the film festival rotation. I don't think this ever had a theatrical release. I mean, I'd heard about it. Well, stateside maybe, right? Yeah, probably. But I mean, if it's small enough, it probably had film festival releases with no actual theatrical. I'd say that's probably why the worldwide box office gross. I couldn't find it. It probably wasn't there. That's why. There you go. Budget of 3 .5 million. I don't know if that's in Norwegian money, and I don't know what Norwegian money even looks like. So it's called a skribu. Two very different answers. Did you make that up? No. Run that about me one more time. What was that? Skribu. That's very Swedish chef -esque. So on IMDb, it has opening weekend of $5 ,585 in the US. That's US dollar. Okay. That's probably like 40 or 50 million in Norwegian. And the budget was 19 .9 million nock, which I think is Norwegian kroner. That's beads. That's the larger denomination, but the lower denomination is skribu. Skribu. So it's like cents. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. This grossed over 2 ,000 matroska dolls or whatever. Well, it's like two cents. Yeah. They did a good box office in those little dolls that you get another doll inside and another doll inside. It brought in a lot of those. You got dinks, then you got skribus, and then you got sickles, and then you got nuts, and then you got galleons. That might be Harry Potter. So 515 is doing you real good, isn't it? We just lost our Norwegian listener base. Now, I like that guy. He's got good comments. I can never read them, but they're great. Yeah. They're all related to skribu. Well, I Google translate all of them, so I get the gist. So this had a budget of 3 .5 million skribu. This a is found footage fantasy horror film. Vaguely in the similar vein as Blair Witch Project. That's the vibe I got a lot of, a little bit of Cloverfield, that kind of vibe too. Found footage. Yeah. It has some elements of Jaws. It also has some dark humor, moments of dark humor. I mean, very dry humor. This has become a cult hit over time. So very simple plot, has two film students and their camera person trailing a man they believe to be responsible for bear poaching in the mountainous Norwegian countryside. He is Hans, played by Norwegian comedian Otto Jespersen. Otto Jespersen. He is part Quint from Jaws, part Ahab, part Unabomber. Yes person? Maybe. Yes person. It's like having a yes man. You got a yes person. Now I'm going to have to work on my Norwegian. I don't know. I don't know nothing about that. In their attempt at fledgling expose journalism, the students stumble onto a wild story that Hans is actually a troll hunter who attempts to manage and contain the troll population all while also participating in a government project to keep the story buried from the general public. He's more like a troll ranger, really. He's like a park ranger for trolls. Yeah, because he obviously has, and I have like a kind of a weird shambling respect for the trolls, like he has a weird, you know, healthy fear of them. Respect your enemy. Yeah. Well, it's more like a, you know, a naturalist who, yeah, you don't want to contend with bears, but you respect that bears are a living thing that deserve to coexist. But you don't want them to get in your Mazda 6. No. No. Is that a car? That's a Mazda. Yeah. That's a smaller, it's a sporty, very small, I don't think a bear could fit in there. I don't think I could fit in there. Good mileage, though. The Mazda 6? Yeah. I think you're going to get high 20s, and that's not bad for a... The red ones are faster. Yeah, for a sportier sedan, especially because they have that rotary engine that gives you good speed. So... Yeah, that's right. You have a Mazda now. That's right. You're a Mazda. We're part of the Mazda. You know all the specs. Positive traction. Exactly. You've got quadraphonic. Hans hunts the trolls with a massive UV apparatus, which exposes them to their greatest weakness, which is sunlight, either real or artificial sunlight. This either turns them to stone, or it detonates them into a big, hairy pond of goo. The two students attempt to document Hans' story before they either get eaten alive, or the government confiscates their footage or silences them altogether. So that's what I've got for description. So, Trav, this was your pick. Yeah, I'm going to let Sean go first. It's been a while since I've seen this. It's been a while. I love this movie because it is so off the wall. It starts off kind of slow, and it's sort of a slow burn early on, but then it ramps up pretty fast, and you just get into it. For the budget that it was, it's a very good movie. Good -looking movie. Good -looking movie? I mean, with a budget of $19 .9 million, you know, you've got to have some assets being put into it. But the nice thing about doing the found footage is you don't have to dedicate resources to good writing and editing. You can just sort of have these real shoddy jump cuts and things just kind of go all over the place. You don't have to actually end it that well. Spoilers, because you wanted to remember how it ends. Basically, the main reporter guy ends up getting rabies, finds out he got rabies from the trolls, and then ends up running away with the footage. Takes the cameras because the government folks are coming to take the footage. Which the government folks are not like dudes in suits with sunglasses. It's just like a guy in a parka. Oh yeah, we're going to take your footage, okay? Hey, you can't have footage? I'm going to take that from you? We'll give you 4 ,000 scuba for your footage. We've got to put that joke to bed, guys. I'm sorry. You opened that can of worms. You created a monster. I apologize to all Norwegians. But, I mean, it just sort of ends. It just sort of like he runs away with the camera and then there's, you know, some text on a black screen of exposition of this is what we think happened. This is unsubstantiated. Faux exposition. Yeah, faux exposition. Multiple experts have analyzed this footage and determined it's authentic. It's like, okay. But it's fun. It's a fun movie. It's goofy. It's a little, I wouldn't even say like sci -fi or horror. Dark comedy? Yeah, I get a lot of comments about that. I guess. Yeah, because there are really comedic moments, right? Like they hired the Muslim camerawoman and they're talking about whether or not her fact that she's a Muslim will attract - Does she believe in God? Is she? It's Christians? I don't know. We'll find out. Whatever. Yeah. It's a little bit like Gremlins 2. Like, wait a minute. They can't eat after midnight. I mean, it's always midnight somewhere and it pops out. It reminds me of the scene in Clue where they find the dead body again after finding so many dead bodies and they're just like, go to the other room, see the dead body. It's like, she's Muslim. Does that count? We'll find out. We'll see. We'll see how hungry they are. We'll do it for science. But yeah, I just love, I love the lore building of like the trolls are, they follow all these old rules. Like he's putting tires under bridges because trolls live under bridges, obviously. Yeah. Yeah. You know, and it's like, oh, they eat the bones of, or they smell the blood of a Christian man. It's like that's what sets them off. And then he comes walking into the big, like the, the bear suit that's like a suit of armor. I think, yeah, when he's under the, yes, because he has to take the blood from the troll. And so to do that, he has this giant, ridiculous syringe. Yeah. Just goofy. Yeah. Just goofy. I can tell they had a lot of fun making the movie, but it's, it's good. It's a romp. Yeah, it is. And yeah, it hits on all those, to me, I mean, I put the word Tolkien -esque in my notes of like, it hits the Tolkien -esque tropes. I mean, obviously it goes further than that, further back from that, like folk tales of trolls, but you also, I got to put like the Hobbit vibe, you know, the trolls turning into stone. Turning into stone. Yeah. But with like a tinge of bureaucracy. Yeah. There's a little bit of like that sort of, I don't know, pseudo X -Files thing of like, we've got to cover this up, you know, the government's got to step in and never happened. But, you know, of course that's exactly what it would look like if the government did have a troll hunting agency is he would have to fill out this form of like troll extermination. Yeah. But yeah, it's not some guys in some bad -ass car in black suits, it's like some guy in a Saab with a vest on like, oh yeah, let me see your footage over there. I'm going to have to delete your camera. It also reminded me somewhat of Blade where they're like fighting some old, you know, folkloric beast with like all the tech of today. It was just like, but on a shoestring budget, like Blade and Whistler where they're like, we're not exactly the March of Dimes or Hellboy. Yeah. We're just grabbing stuff. Well, no, Hellboy had a whole, you know, like a group behind him. I don't know, Blade had some cool tech though. Blade did. And a bad -ass car. But they were, you know, just a shoestring budget trying to, they're upset that their department doesn't get more funding. Right. They're like, this is what we got. He's just, he's like, I'm tired. I don't get vacation. Like, I just, I don't care. Yeah, you can film me. I don't care. I go where I'm needed. Great weather. I have that in my notes. I was like, I feel like Travis. I'm watching Sun and like in for my like rating, it's like, this is good weather. This is like good, foggy, rainy weather. I love it. And you know, they cut to like the mountains and the kind of cool, misty, you know, again, like Lord of the Rings vibe, the cool, misty mountains. And it's like good weather, you know? Yeah. I felt right at home in this flick. And I love, like you said that. Yeah, I've been saying that for years. You said like Quint from Jaws. That's exactly what I was thinking, too, is that when they have to, when they were filming him from afar, you know, found footage films are kind of difficult to do ever since what Blair Witch Project, obviously quintessential. Cloverfield also did it well. I love a giant kaiju monster. Paranormal activity? I have never seen any of the paranormals. Well, maybe I'm kind of a giant pussy. Come on. OK, well, hey, we got October coming up. That's true. But I think there's oh, I might have seen the end of quarantine, the one where there's like zombies. There's like a fire or something and news crew goes in there and they have to close. They have to quarantine the building or something. They're like, shit, there's something in here with us. I think I've seen that. Maybe. So I've heard good things about that. And it was a remake of a foreign film, I think. But those Quarantinos. Yes. But I hadn't seen a found footage from Robert Rodriguez's band. Yeah, I hadn't seen a found footage film in a while. And this one was actually the reason I got Netflix, because I was stealing my brother's Netflix. He was trying to watch something at the same time. And I was like, ah, fuck it. Fine, I'm going to buy it. So I watched this whenever it was on Netflix and I had heard good things about it. Which it's not anymore. Yeah, it's not. Couldn't find that anywhere. Bastards. Yeah, but I love the the fact that, you know, with not a huge budget, they're able to do more with less. I mean, all their money obviously went into the special effects and the trolls, which looked damn good. They looked really good. Yeah. You would think with this on paper, you're like, this is not going to be great. But it. Yeah, it looked lovely. It's a huge, giant fucking Godzilla troll at the end. First of all, where the fuck is he sleeping? Like how is he in the mountains? He's in the mountains. Yeah. But God, that thing's dick as big as a 40 foot long school bus. I don't know. I'm at school. I just said bus. I don't know why I said school bus. But yeah, I loved Hans in it. He was just fed up and was like, fuck this. But I was very pleasantly surprised when I saw it. And then there's a pseudo, not a sequel exactly, but kind of along the same vein, a movie named Just Troll came out in 2022.

Am i the my missing remembering this do we have we had a couple of like. I'm a new clergy person calls lately. Do we have an inordinate amount of new clergy people who listen to this. Yeah we had Three rabbis any mom An incredibly six zoro astrakhan's how and the bartender says one horse. We won horses. Well oh we started before there. Were other pipe. Cabbies is the punchline gag. That's i know we had the bit. We had the bit we were doing for a while. We were trying to guess like you know how many people who listened to the show have like been on a battleship and how many people like you know worked at ren fairs or something like do we have a. We have a big clergy audience. We're not catering to i think we have. I think we have twenty five people of the cloth Listening to this show right now. Twenty five people of the cloth right now. that's what i think you guys if you're catering to the clergy i can make a hot dish. Minnesota clergy humor there. The mantle has fallen in recent years. So here i would be interested to hear from clergy people and i think unlike this bad caller who called with their bad call. You know. I would like to hear how you might be incorporating the show into your sermons lessons. We've taught you Parables yeah i would. Can i expand leading by example. Sure so i think number one any kind of clergy person who's speaking publicly number. Two principals at assemblies will also accept vice principals. Yes and also. I wanted to draw the line. I think we're probably gonna have a lot of people. Dial in because like oh. I got the universal life thing to do. My friend's wedding no doesn't we reject the universal life church and all its teachings. I don't know if they're good or bad. I don't know anything about him. I gave him a book. So i could do my friends wedding. So yeah jordan near in the universal death church or my right. That's right. I love death very narrow pacific life. Church range non universal nonunion for everybody finally completed the humor right so anyway vice principals. Do you think there's more principals and vice principals or do you think there's more clergy persons. I think there's more clergy. I think there's more clergy persons. Yeah really and i think there's more vice principals and principals just overall in the world because usually like to vice-principal right. I mean who are listening to the show Well there there's a chain of command because the vice principal is there in the event that the principles politically assassinated right. That's why they can't be in the same building together. That's right travel in separate cars. Separate principal vice-principal social studies snafu. Three for moment coach. Well and that's why when the president the principal addresses the school. Like there's always one math teacher who stays behind the designated survivor. Yes right. it's amazing that you think gutsy that you have both math teachers in your band john. Oh yeah there's not and the other two of us are former public radio people and podcast people so it's a great contrast. Do you have any do you have. Are you guys talking about shows. You got the album to promote. Are you talking about doing a live show and outdoor shows something like that. Yeah we're planning to do a live show. We're hoping for this fall but apply be pushed to the winter now. Winter's going to be great.

"Give it a little more meaning help you cope a little bit and hey here's another idea. Maybe you can use some of the dissatisfaction that you're feeling these days to move a little faster with your writing. Maybe when you're bummed about work you can come home and say i'm gonna send my manuscript even more people. I'm going to finish these edits a little more quickly. That kind of thing. That could be another way to put some of this restlessness to good use. Yeah good point. Sometimes you can't change the feeling you can only change what you do with the feeling. That's what ends up changing the feeling so just keep putting one foot in front of the other dover this finish your manuscript senate out get feedback. Do the rewrites see if an agent publisher even bites you know not to. I don't want to be discouraging but the shit is hard. See what the money looks like. You might be like. Are you kidding me. This is my advance right and then decide which life you want to choose because the brutal truth. I'm not saying this. Depiction your cheerios. You already know this. The brutal truth is that this decision you're stressing about. It could take years to come to a head all the energy year pouring into this question of what do i do. Who am i. can. I make this tradeoff. That energy is just better spent on doing the next thing. Stay focused. do the work. Let the path unfold organically because it always does good luck all right next up. Hey jordan and gabe my mother's diagnosed as seriously mentally ill and has been in treatment for half my life with little to no effect on her diagnosis. I understand her disease. But it's now gotten to a point where my mother is not just suicidal but projecting her mania onto other people. She's threatened her husband. My stepdad with a knife and frequently cuts herself. Her latest manic episode was more haunting than usual. She has threatened to drive into the back of a semi truck to kill herself. While it's still sad to think of my momma suicidal. I cannot accept the fact that she is now potentially putting other people in danger. Here's my problem. She's been with the same psychiatrist for seventeen years and my family. And i believe he has been no help. I'm starting to think that. I need to get a court order for a mental health evaluation and designated as her medical power of attorney. But i'm not sure how i should go about this especially given that she lives in another state. Where do i start. Signed managing mom with great aplomb. Well i'm very sorry that you and your mom are going through this. My heart does go out to you. Guys serious mental illness is extraordinarily hard. Obviously it's even harder when it lasts for decades. So your mom. She's struggling in a major way. And it sounds like it's falling on you to make sure she's all right and that's quite a burden to carry. And i hope you're holding up okay. Since you're really asking a legal question we consulted with the one and only corbin pain top notch defense attorney in front of the show and the first thing that see pains said. He asked me to call him. That said was having a medical power of attorney that obviously gives you certain rights abilities but there can be sharp differences in power of attorney laws from state to state. So the the document appointing you as a peo- a that lays out your powers and responsibilities for example it might only be effective if your mom is incapacitated and getting her declared incapacitated. That's another headache. All its own corbin. Can't comment with specificity. On your ability to get things done with your power of attorney other than to advise you that you should of course contact an attorney in your state and or your mom's state and i totally agree with that being lawyers state to state thing. Now that said there are some options. That corbin can chime in on so first of all if your mom has articulated a desire to kill herself or she has a planned method to kill herself and definitely if she's done both then you can kick off the process to get her evaluated by what's called a crisis team and that term differs from state to state but every state has some version of a crisis team. It's a local hospital or mental health. Hospital would be able to point you in the right direction. To get started with that. This is basically a team psychological professionals who can evaluate someone on the spot and make a recommendation for somebody to be committed to a mental health institution. And you're right. Your mom is posing a risk to herself and other people and that is a major cause for concern. So i understand why this might be necessary now if your mom is opposed to entering a facility. She can only be committed for a short amount of time. But that time could be extended by an order of the court corbin said not to worry about the court proceedings. The hospital usually handles that. Depending on the power of attorney andrew states laws. You might be able to agree to certain things even over your mom's objections as for dealing with her current psychiatrist corbin did say that you can contact the hospital and express some of your concerns about this person. They should be able to speak with you sense. You have power of attorney. They can review medical history at your mom's medical history and if concerned about the psychiatrist to they might be able to require a change in service providers as a condition for her release again. This really depends on state law. And even if they don't have a problem with the psychiatrist per se or they can't mandate a change. They should still be putting a plan together for her treatment. Post release and the psychiatrist would be required to follow that in theory right the last option corbin mentioned is this. You might wanna consider pursuing a conservative ship now. Conservative ships are very controversial. There not always clean and they really truly should be used as a last resort. Corbin did say that. He's one hundred percent hash tag free brittany for the record But conservative ships. They can be abusive. I agree but if you're dealing with somebody with lifelong mental health issues is threatening to kill herself in a manner that would also endanger other innocent people. That conservative ship might be the lesser of two evils. Now under a conservative ship. You could make important. Medical calls even over mom's objections not phone calls but like decisions that could include having her evaluated having her committed changing her medical service providers. This is probably your best bet for keeping her.

"Have you ever lied in your life. Yes wendy lie to get out of trouble so this would fall under the heading of one. You would lie only to the police only to the police. So ask that question. The second question is you ask them a yes or no question. If the first word out of their mouth is well then they are about to give you an answer. They know you're not expecting good example of this. Is i send my kid off to the bedroom to do his homework. I nothing but shenanigans going on there. No homework and i say when he comes out i say. Did you do your homework. And my son says well that means he is about to give me an answer. He knows i'm not expecting and in this case he's expecting what were they answered that she think i'm expecting yesterday. I did my homework So he's going to give you any answer but yech when he says well well as the tell that says you're not getting a straight answer or you're getting an excuse. Yeah yeah you get trying to say boston arrays this year. Well not you're not. You're not getting a race. There's a lot that i can see going from. Police work to parenting to even just working in an office right at probably less interrogation from your bosses although hard to say there is a lot in the book about recognizing a plight knowing when to use empathic statements physical and non verbal communication observing other people in drills and exercises them. How to do that al over some of that in the show closed. But we'll put a little bit more in the worksheet. Dr jack shafer thank you so much. It's always fun to talk to you and we'll have to have you come back. Are you working on anything new or are you trying to retire at some point. Well i'm slowing down a bit. yeah. I'm still teaching. And maybe i have one more book in me. What would it be about if you writing it right now. I don't know maybe a short stories about some fbi cases that i hit. I think there's a book there yet. Most you investigations are boring so i would just highlight the exciting moments in the investigation. Desperate people be most interested in. Are you gonna take concepts from the light switch and the truth detector put into the stories and so that people can use them. Yeah i probably will. Because that's where they all came from the light switch and true detective ball came from my experiences in law. Do you think that the us has gotten better at using these techniques in counterintelligence in an intelligence work or do you think we're relying more on technology these days to our detriment. I think we're were moving towards electronic surveillance and away from human would call humid. But i think we're gonna need humid though. I mean there's only so much you get. We call sagan Humid in electric stuff. There's only so much you can get. Nothing takes the place of having somebody inside in organization. Tell you exactly what's being set. So i think this depends on is going to swing back the other way. Well hopefully we'll be able to play a little bit of a part in that. And i'm sure you'll be one of the first people to know if the pendulum swing the other way because they're gonna have to call you back to work. You're never gonna get a chance to retire. But hey at least get to work at a fun career off-spin it's been a very enjoyable career. Thank you very much for your time. If you want more from dr schaffer we did a two parter with him on elucidation. Here's a preview. We want the best out of life. You want the best business deals. We want the best personal relationships that we can get a lot of that information that we need to get. The best deal is often hidden with tation. People don't realize that you're using limitation techniques on them. You're just setting up a psychological environment that predisposes them to want to tell you information. They wouldn't otherwise tell. You typically illustration doesn't use questions if you asked me a direct question i'm thinking what does he want. How's this information to be used is going to be used against me. Why is he saying this. What's motivation and then. Of course i'm gonna come out with my sunshine answer and give you something that i think you want to hear. There's a human predisposition to correct others. If i want to get information from you i will just give you what we call the presumptive statement though scene there false statement or a true statement. But you're going to cooperate. Say yes that's true or you're going to say no that's not true. It's this we take our students after four hours of instruction in the morning we take typically to a public mall and we will assign them targets randomly throughout the mall. And we'll tell our students see that person over there. Goget their data birth go get their social security number. Go get their pin numbers for their computer in their bank accounts and the students can do that within three to five minutes of meeting a stranger if i can get some stranger to like me within.

Answer get a and then. we'll talk. press play brian. Hi jordan jesse. Wonderful guest and sunny d. This is stephen san diego. I'm calling in for another edition of your segment ways. My neighbors are scaring away crows. I was just walking my dog. And i saw probably about two dozen crows on a line powerline in front of me. That's probably about a murder of crows. But i'm not sure and then suddenly from across the street my neighbor came out and run out them and started shouting owl owl. Who put and i noticed something in his hand and i realized what it was was a mop and on the top of the mob had put one of those big plastic scare. Owls that you put on top of the building. And he was shaking them and it worked and he seemed pretty impressed that it worked in these ways. So if you have crows maybe get a mop and put an hour on it and shout owl at them now. The show thank you fuck you fuck. Here's what i'm kidding. I'm gonna let you a little bit as to what my process is making plans to move to the other next door of this. What i'm doing is i'm going back through thirteen years of this podcast taking stock and i'm life long house. We been doing momentous occasions. What have we got kind of. What are the alzheimer's or the memorable ones. Because this is the best one right like this is the best since it wasn't technically is occasion because it was this call thing we're doing. But i'm grouping it in with calls we've got and if you if you take calls as a segment is this. This is the best one right. I mean garoppolo was good but lake. If this i would say if if this was a story about one of those owls attached to a broom. But it's a fucking mop. You can't backhand part is flopping around. Maybe guy this guy who's doing this. His understanding of animals is all comes from polk. Amman where he thinks they say their name owl bear bear bear shows. How human human human fuck man. That's really good. 'cause san diego rule. They got the wild animal park. This guy more than one submarine you can go is. I'm marie tall ships. You can visit tall ships. You wouldn't put they put French fries and burritos fries britos. Yeah i think they got a lot of those. Like i think they do. A lot of those like intense bloody marys. That have a little burger in a bloody marys. But i kind of like. I like that. I think that's a lot of fun. It's is running around in public shaking and owl on a guy who'd who'd how hoot god who who works. Do you think that neighbor knew that. He was writing like the second best. Maurice said like obviously in the night kitchen is still number one. Sorry where the wild things are. But number two is our it's like a sequel it's like a sequel to the sign on rosie's door but instead of focusing on rosie focuses on rosie's uncle if we do if we do get to go to you know a comecon again this year in coming years. I'm this is who. I'm dressing up as spiderman man. Remember when we did that jordan. Jesse go at max fun con and the other live show at that particular.

We're really pumped to dress up in their which hats and stuff and one of those guys came to the jordan. Jesse go show. He was dressed as like a classic. Nineteen sixties robin and. He was the only guy in outfit and the whole show. God that guy fucking rule hard. Obviously my favorite thing. That's ever happened. Just this one.

The classic click phone was added than it looks like. There's a countdown and pretend to be reading. Try like oh yeah. I had to go through late hours and hours and hours of whether those for that video. I'll tell you it's so annoying that it's like you get in there like oh hey like thomas from england or hey jerry from just like read all these navy go. There's no doubt that he just making up right so the live chat. You're saying the live chat is fake. So there's a chat box on the side and it's like hey jordan james. This is so amazing. you're dropping. Huge knowledge bombs wrote that. And it just comes up at like seventeen. and we go. yeah jonathan from albuquerque. What's up dog and we screw thing. There's no one in the chat. You're the only five people watching this webinar. It's been played seven thousand times on every tuesday or whatever. Yeah or literally. Sometimes i won't be that live try. We'll just say something like if you have any questions here. They weren't actually show you the child. Just this is the private chat between you and the grew so that pretending that you're not going to see everyone else's message between and the anyway you go through that whole thing and then at the end you'll typically given the worst type ones i remember. Seeing is a few times as way they give you the time account. Doubt knowing. this isn't alive. women is like it's a complete fake time. I guess you're like earned given this often. Now they'll put like the five minute timer and it goes down down down and then they're saying like you should do these things closer. Is you know really. Imagine like days is where it gets the multi shady. And it's like whoa you doing you completely over sunday expectations and while someone should expect when getting like this although magazine extremely easy and spent like one sentence in about three oh well saying this is only for somebody who's going to work hard but look you don't need a customers you don't need to have any knowledge of the incident. You don't need any marketing. Experience is like whoa. Whoa like you you just one sentence all like spending two hours off like describing. How easy basically saying this is super easy will do anyway. Yeah that's the way. It always felt really something. That's designed you cases. You did a funny side by side in the video. One of the videos where you showed one of the guys who again no names mentioned but it was like you posted one him stand in front of his dumb car right and he's like visited people that are kind like me lazy but they wanna make a lot of money like the first of all if you like no one shut your face but second of then like five minutes later and he's like this does really what a hustle get down to business no fluff. I'm going to teach you the way and you're going to have to grind grind grind grind and then fifteen minutes later or five minutes later it's like and you're going to be chilling while this thing runs itself in the background and i'm thinking this is deliberate right because it's first people who have selective hearing if i'm like i'm ready to grind a ready to go. I don't wanna hear how easy it is. I want to hear how like. I'm one of the elite ready to cut through it. I just need someone to show me the way. I am going to run through walls and the people that go man you know and kind of lazy i just wanna like binu new stuff so that girls are like me. I'm only hearing those parts. Or i'm hearing the other parts depending on what's going to resonate with me the best so if i'm a fake guru. I'm saying literally anything just to see what sticks onto certain leads because other people will forget the rest of this is actually called the. We'll revisit this in the law of attraction segment here on the show. This called the baader meinhof phenomenon..
