You're you're not by yourself here now. That's Rick Cowling is came with me in case in case you forced me into making any music. I heard this show. We just warned him. We just gave them a list of all the people you sang with. I've have you ever worked with Steve. Nick's an unsung hero of the music. Business silent sister was pretty good. You said something that stuck with me you you say when you were hosting American idol and your rose the question you would ask every contestant and will help me okay you ask them. Why are you here yes? Yeah that's pretty much. Why are you here? What do you want WanNa make it? Yeah well it struck me that Their premises excuse me that this is GonNa this is GonNa make your life better right. You can be an overnight sensation and all your problems will go away and you will. We'll have a wonderful life and the premise is incorrect. Yes you know. It's just doesn't work that way and And so that was one of the questions questions I asked the. I remember. There was a girl on. who was the daughter of a psychic and she claimed to be a psychic and she had a career as a psychic Abbott? She wanted to be the next American idol and they asked her they said. Are you GonNa win this. Because you're psychic right. She said yes. I'm going to be the next American idol. So you comes comes out and she sings and she is pretty horrible and they got to me and I said I've never seen anyone ruined to careers. Here's who wants before. I let you know that was that. Was the ad been drinking drinking. And then I'll use that as my punchline everything tonight you know what's funny about what you said. I remember when I first started getting interested rested and going to show business. I had the idea that if you're in show business you never depress you never unhappy happy. You never frost everything everything that bothers normal people doesn't affect you. Yeah it's clearly not a normal person so that didn't work out he he without after knowing your for twelve minutes. That's that's pretty impressive. Kids are going into the business. I mean you've got a couple of children. Now that are that are music well. My oldest boy went in for a while Ronnie Crosby and he quit at twenty nine when he realized what you were saying that it wasn't the the answer to all the problems and actually it was creating a whole lot of new ones and what he was so frustrated by the by the time he hit that that age he said to me Dad. Why don't you get out of the way it would just go away? Maybe I have a shot. I've known but he's cool. He's he's got his own. It business in Santa Barbara. He's doing really well and he's married and has my My first grandchild so by granddaughter Pfeiffer and so that's part hard of What I did when we're Franken? I were talking earlier and I told him that. I wrote a new verse two Danny Song for my granddaughter. And so it's because you have to remember that Danny Song was a song I wrote for my brother Dan. I was a senior in high school. His his child was had just been born in his first child. And you see this circle going around all the time and then I'm I'm watching my own children. I had five of my own and you know so with this just keeps going. I figured I'd let the song grow up with my life near back sense. You did neither discourage or encourage your kids When they when when they're going to go into the business you know I? It was more like a hollow. Encourage any of my children to do anything. They're dreaming of. You know and he really wanted to do that. He really had that thing going he did at MTV show Called rock the cradle and one of the kids of famous people that are trying to go into music business But you know it just. It wasn't the thing that was going to work for him. And before we get to a laid out of it I have to ask you to do some Danny Song. Oh okay as long as you're on the subject well. Does anybody have a guitar here. You can use your mind. We've gotta give sure that these guitars let me see if I do this and sing down a little. It might work work Is it it is a good. They've gotten people smiling. Tell me on the looking leave. Jospin gun going son You be vaccine me as reusing can see Shannon even Gone Mon Love Mall Long John to ask to you. Go beyond love girl world in the paper come only undid wrench should bring you find. She helps you mind burly Jabe Jabu wrong wrong. Would love shown hang on so long chain Martin Jeer Judge Judy the three It took. Here's the milk for my granddaughter. She is smile at me. Shark Lean mcgrane boys now we good be better nine now have been told his really Truman certain catch a common round Brown now. We Got Mountain John Being Arrive uh-huh Beautiful thank you the lyrics. It's higher was the thing I don't know uh-huh changing pitch on the there was a letter that you that you sent to. Your brother consider I got from my brother and the lyrics lifted right out of the lyrics. Were beautiful on the letter beautiful. Was this the same brother who's guitar. You use You snatch down from the house. He more than made it up to them. How did this get to Anne Murray? Can you give. She took it off the off the purse loggins machine. She did a lovely version of it. Yeah she did great version and then I wrote a song called Love Song right and And so I took it right tour. Then at that point I add matter you know shoulder some staff and then when when the vindicated with love signed because because Jimi Jimi didn't like it he didn't want want love Song Messina re really he didn't want it on the second album and so then when she loved it and she turned into a hit and I said I think we should put on the record vindicated. Yeah wonderful mantelpiece music and I think on on your tombstone stone. There's GonNa be. He did the music for caddyshack to the only. If I go to hill I ah yeah I had to bring up. Yeah I you know. I think I auditioned for we. Bring it up. I was talking about it. I'm I'm not good enough to a level of excellence which dishes for I. I think I think it was the part that was supposed to have originally been same kinison. And then it went to Randy Quaid when Sam Tame Kennison dropped out while and logical secondly then. When you see Randy Quaid it would? It sounds like he's doing an imitation of same kinison. Yeah I think you dodged a bullet. Yes if to say Oh yeah yeah yeah. Are you totally self taught much. Yeah just and then the Harmonica I had. I mentioned him today. I had a guitar teacher when I was in high. School and Ran Randy Ride Rod. ruggles just the Lawrence Welk. No you've done your homework. That's so deep gut. That's a deep cut. Yeah no I The First Guitar Teacher I had I was in like the seventh grade and he played guitar. Lawrence welk's man mm-hmm so there were guitar teachers. Well I I went to like three classes. You want me to learn scales and you're self taught. Yeah pretty much. Weren't you want points. You're listening to your brothers. Tried to write a song that I will that was when I was had fifth sixth grade somewhere in there and my big brothers decided that rock and roll sounded so easy that they would write the song and it took him months. And I'll I remember thinking it's gotTa be easier than this is is your one brother and and the other brother dance for years older than me and at this moment he lives in Connecticut. Okay but his houses for sale so it will please confirm in which you said what you said. One brother was was kind of turning you on Iraq and the other brother was attorney. You'll end up more of the Rock Guy I see and And so he was turning me onto everything from Elvis Presley through the coasters little Richard Fats Domino stuff like that. And and then my my big brother was more of a focus guy in some country and that That influenced me so my first band was folk. Okay banned because that seemed easy to do now three chords and man. When did you wind up at wingate and you were young right right? It's ABC wingate. That was When I when I moved out from my family home and got a place in my own rented an a half duplex in east? La Sixty five bucks a month. Nice that in one thousand nine. Thanks for cheaper five a month. Sixty five bucks a month and my my first job was as songwriter was with. ABC wingate which doesn't exist anymore and they paid me one hundred bucks a week which must've seemed like a a small fortune. Well Yeah Nineteen Oh nine tatton. Had you beat and wind up with Messina. Well I love Buffalo Springfield and that was a band. That was a big influence to me. And so I saw the Jimmy. Messina was producing buffalo for Springfield so I was trying to get in touch with him and at the same time that I was trying to reach out to him. My brother and his best friend got hired hired by Clive. Davis to be an are trainees for Columbia records and so they extended that connection to Jimmy Messina China once they got inside and it was through them that I met Jimmy and and addition for him he was by by the time a staff producer with Columbia records and he passed on Dan. Fogelberg famously. Right lucky for me. I would have been logging in or no would've been focal doesn't scan and kind of Simon and Garfunkel you said Messina was like a mentor to you very much. Well you know. He'd been part of Buffalo Springfield he'd founded POCO. He'd been on the road for like six years by the time I met him and he knew how to put a band together. How to make a record? How to fund management and agency? And so I just pretty much went to school on you. You know everything that he could teach me. And plus she was a good producer and And so I watched a lot of that and when you guys is discovered that when you started singing together you you realize you had a kind of Everley brothers was go. Yeah there was definitely a bland. You know vocal thing that We recognized right away and We we didn't write together that much. We wrote Mama Dance. We wrote angry is A couple of good songs angst did well and but you know I was still focused on my solo career loggins. Messina was aside trip. That the the first record was called. Kenny loggins Jimmy Messina sitting in ripe based on the idea that we would do one record together. You know like jazz kind of thing you sit in for a song and We figured we would break up. And he would produce my solo record as the second record and when we turned the record into Clive Davis at Columbia records. He said I love it. And there's no way I'm going to release the record of abandoned GonNa break up so he said I wanna I wanNA commitment of six years from you guys as much music as I can force you to put out and and so we ended up doing you know about five records in that time. I love those albums. They meant so much to me. Thanks in the seventies. I mean I for something that was. Would you call it. An accidental partnership guys wound up selling sixteen. Seventy million records was a good day. Yeah I would say so and you said Like this go and disco came along. Met like look like who's going to totally kill. Your career killed a lot of career when that happened but I got lucky length x so many times in my career I got lucky and did an end run around round disco when the movies came along and the first movie that I did was CADDYSHACK and I wrote like three songs longs for that. That was Jon Peters produced caddyshack and John. I met John when he was with Barbara streisand when I went to WHO Show Barbara some song ideas for stars born and then we would hang out and just go through. You know things in saying singing duet to west with Barbra streisand was hip. And saying you're missing out. That was cool and So then when he went solo solo so to speak mean John Peters He called me up and said I got this movie. You gotta see and so came in and loved it. That was the first first caddyshack. Not The when I was ten music in caddyshack when you went yeah. Ten Music is the music that the director puts in a spot where they were basically. They're saying there's some music here. I don't know what it is but I wanted to feel like this. And the opening King of the movie had a Bob Dylan Song in it and it was basically the lead character. Danny were you talking about caddyshack. Lead character Danny's riding his bike Komo suburbs and And I thought that's really strange that this kind of preppy kit is riding a bike. And they're playing Dylan Ellen. So I took from that that they wanted a character that would would was your would-be come fiercely independent You know like a rebel. Yeah so I wrote Him All right and actually stealers wheel had a hit out. That time called stuck in the mirror. Thank you very rafferty. Jerry was imitating Dylan on that song. Wow would you do that condition and I just. I loved up that song and I loved what he was doing so when it got to. I'm all right. They were founding ending. Canton yeah so that was my sort of weak Dylan imitation on that guy. I just now that you brought up caddyshack and you see we jump around all over the place but I have to ask about Mr night. I have to get up and jump around for Mr night was on was on one of the on the solo records records. Don't keep the fire. Yeah so written for caddyshack pre existed pre exit. Well I don't know you know time and me don't get along okay but maybe I wrote it now it pretty. I'm pretty sure it preexisted of that was Me and Richard Steckel A musician out of Laguna Beach. We were writing a steely Dan Song. The goal was to write a lyric that no one would understand. I had to search my wife loves that song and we never knew what it was about and we found out the DUT Tomasa was that that was a car. ARTEM Anisimov Lamborghini too. Yeah and I. I just got invited by Jay Leno to be on his car show with him and he sits there any car in the world that you'd like to drive and I thought well I could tie that song in and drive perfect any and then somebody said yeah and if you step on the gas wrong you're dead said well maybe maybe a Volkswagen. Here's the hello. Here's has nothing to do with anything. Of course I'm good at that stuck in the middle with you they sued What Tarantino Garo Crow? Oh Sheryl Crowe weirding yeah. What was that song bad? Yeah I'LL WANNA do yes. Yes yeah loose affiliation. Lilian Wilder Hilbert impressed. I can go back to sleep not remembering one thing. Today's good for you. I will note Danny Sung Yung seventeen seventeen and how corner you were seventeen. Amazing thank you gotTa tell the house at Pooh corner story. Is it such a good story. I know you've told it a lot. Look really terrific So I was First Year of what would be a year and a half at City College in Pasadena and a buddy of mine and I would go around singing for friends and I taught him how Super Karner stuff that so anyway he is Doug Ingalls let's be said I I. There's a girl I want you to meet. And so we went out to her house and anyway the story is that I as a songwriter. I went to different Parties around Hollywood and I would sit around and the guys would show guys and girls would show up with their guitars. We'd sit circle and take turns trading tunes and at this one particular party house there with a couple of guys in a circle were from the nitty gritty dirt. Band and I had written the House Pooh Corner Song by that time and they loved the song about the bear they were making their i. Guess Second Record is that was the first. That was the uncle Charlie record and they want to do the song about the bear and about a month into the process. I got a phone call from Bill Bill McClellan. Who was the manager had been? He said I had to tell you this but we can't record that song. The Disneyland serve all over it. They they've got a copyright on that guy and we can't on way too on Winnie the Pooh and we can't do the sunk and I never even thought about you know copyright on just a book I read Red United to know about that stuff that and so I I was going on a date and I told Marnie I said Kinda bombed. I thought my first song recorded and it's not gonNA happen. The Disney liars killed it in the water and she said Disney Liars. Well let me talk to daddy about that. Her daddy was the CEO of the Disney Corporation. Incredible no improving. There is. This guy is looking out for that is Qismat told you a lot of lucky things happen in a career to make a career happen. You know some kind of guided thing that happens every now and then and doing the research on you. That came up a lot. You feel like lock has played a live very active the role in various successes. And you while you may day and now for both adults and children Oh Yeah Oh ah call it music to make an enjoy children by insert but yeah that's the first one return to Pooh corner When I realized that Well I was about to have my fourth child and I realized that Barney was going to enter my life again in a big way. Panicked is somebody's gotTa make a record. The parents can listen to. That's a public service. You did the Card Walker Card Bachelor and I told the story talk the CEO of the Disney Corporation. I worked for the company and I'd never heard for Card Walker occurred walker before so how to do my research that is that is a lot of luck. Yeah Yeah then in. Another lucky break was Danger Zone I wasn't supposed to be the singer on that They had the. There's a lot of urban legend around that Kevin have been what's his name. Reo He thought he was Cronin. Yeah he was supposed to sing it. But also Mickey Thomas of the starship. He was supposed to sing it. But the lawyer and also Toto there there was some talk of Todo doing it and But I guess their lawyers screw up and finally I got a call from Georgio. MORODOR's office that said I was in. I was in the studio down the street recording complain with the boys a song that I've written for the volleyball scene. 'cause I knew no one would write for that scene and I got a call from his office said. Are you available eligible. We need a singer tomorrow. Because we have to dub this into the movie in like two days so I said is it UPTEMPO because I've been writing nothing but ballads and they said Yeah. It's a rocker. I'm there so I just showed up made a few tweaks on the tune and we recorded it. Am I crazy or is that the song where you were trying to inject a little Tina Turner. That's will you go deer. That's or good. I perhaps that's That's true I I was. I was deep into the Latina. was doing an air resurgence. And I sort of if you listen to that danger zone thing was taboo. Ah I love that you. That musicians are influenced enough by other musicians to try to do a little bit of mimicry. Bring in a little dylan here. Tina Turner there. There is no me actually. I'm just weak versions of other people. Now you're dangerous. Shown to me is like boy royal if anything says eighties movies yeah. That's on her. Yeah it's it's amazing how it's made this comeback Doc. It's it's iconic now as another time where it just didn't matter. I could put it in the show and and full is to footloose wouldn't get people up and dancing for yeary wasn't cool especially at the back end of the disco era and then all of a sudden it was cool again. Is that you singing. footloose so there's hope for you yet. Yeah you may come back into hanging. I want one other thing about long as in Messina. When you guys guys and by the way those records for me you know there were certain albums in the seventies that everybody had to have like tapestry and yellow brick road and sitting in and on stage were? Yeah those were those were must own for wearing where exactly you live longer. That explained to the gold rush that were certain albums albums that everybody had to have when you guys got together again after so many years I found this interesting you know. The dynamics had changed so dramatically between twin. You weren't feeling competitive anymore. Oh yeah that that the change of you would just getting older seasoned and and it's funny money. It takes a conscious effort to break out of that old habit you know like like the partnerships like Martin and Lewis and people like that that that just end up hating each other forever so good example you know and there's we were twenty one twenty two twenty three years old all together figuring out who we were as individuals and suddenly were thrust into a a duo situation where were attracted to the same women we reach for the same code on the the store hanger. It's like we just were to in sync and there became a certain at competitive nature. And and then you have to remember Jimmy came into loggins and Messina as the producers. So he's not just half right of the of the the musical entity he's also also the producer of the entity so he and I don't get along. We asked the producer what he wants which is him so it was really never. It was never a relationship of equals equals was not an equal partnership in right land so became frustrating for me right. Both of you know once we actually We were we were cutting a live album and he and I we were at a soundcheck in here and I got an argument and I got so frustrated. I threw my arm. Monica into the stands. There were no people there and he comes to me and he says in this pression kind of ways as I've been here before we better break up before we hate each other. Commensurate lists the smartest thing that I'd ever heard anybody do was like really self aware he'd been there. He knew what it felt like and we were lucky that way that we broke up before we get to that place where you know you just hate that person. You can't stand you got to break away and because of that we've retained a friendship that's grown over the years more like war buddies of Nice instead of you know competing anymore so you Gilbert and I hated each other on this nowhere to go down but it was sweet. I thought you said when you got on stage all those as years later you hadn't heard that sound in so long that magical sound you guys may atop my attention. Oh yeah there we are it. It's funny 'cause most people when when that starts happening it it they wait till it's true hatred. Yeah we'll you. You're writing the money train right now. It's too seductive to get off. But I was very excited about going solo because like I say when I met him I was ready ready to go solo so that was like Polina Arrow back in the bow was todd and ready to go but foolish naievety. You also called it the sell this of this idea. It was just as successful right. Just go from being a success to being a success and I had no idea that there could be a bottomless pit. There right right you watch the show the office if you know this show that I'm talking about no joke character Stanley. And he's he's He's driving around a sports car in Florida. You know where I'm going with a six hit put on some Kenny loggins character says oh coming up loggins in Messina and he says did I say Masino Gibb laugh at that no how we better take it out so opening for fleetwood. Mac Yeah when you when you launch. What's your Solo career? First of all how insane was that. I mean how how much the crazy soap opera. That was fleetwood Mac Leach into it your world did permeate my world take quite a bit. I know the band went down the abyss before me but eventually I did to. You know there was just a lot of cocaine everywhere and after but it didn't take me long to figure out it really wasn't a good time. You know four in the morning sitting there going why was I born. I cut my hair. I looked like a squirrel was not a fun time. But you and Steve Knicks hung out. We picked up Jake's together her ass business saying if you ever want a uh a chick singer to sing on one of your songs that that's kind of a turning point that was that was incredibly generous ever and I always say that Stevie was instrumental in launching my solo career. Because a lot of people a Lotta guys were trying to go solo from their bands or from duos US as Darryl wasn't a piece of cake and they're all there Hong and I had. Oh good material. I'd made celebrate me home which I'm happy to say. Got No good reviews in an interview. It wasn't loggins and Messina right and add Now they consider it. Like the Quintessential Kenny loggins record. But back then it great stuff on the record and a lot of variety because I believe in love is like a like a Cuban thing and then there's there's celebrate me home and tell us what it was like working with Clive Davis. Clive was brilliant. Brilliant and when I read his book I sent him a note and said had I known you were that smart. I would've shot up. He he knew exactly what is doing and he had amazing airs and he could hear hit. He knew he knew what worked. And what didn't work and you know the fact that he heard loggins and Messina like we talked earlier and said I like you guys. I want you to be on the label. You know but I want the guarantee of six years. He he knew what he was after. And it paid off or your feelings mixed on one hand. Here's a guy offering me a you know a big deal all along deal a long term deal. which is I guess what people want in the music business at the same time? I'm having to table my soul of dreams. No my feelings were mixed at that. The time I was just excited to get a record deal and I- Jimmy and I got along great. We had very simpatico tastes in what we wanted to do musically clayey and it made sense and six years didn't seem that long a time to me. You know I love those songs. Yeah thank music and angry is it goes on and on speaking playing together. How did you guys Hook Up? Well you and rick well. That's a term that kids using a different. I should let you know that. Now the refunded you meet and become professionally acquainted. We mean well. I was playing I was playing a trio Frio with Steve Day. Stanislaw the drummer and sheme. We're doing rock trio. These are guys that were in his traveling band and right then you were looking for somebody some Guitar Thousand Seven. Yeah so They said we love you man. You can't love you are you in. Would you WANNA do it. The next day I got an email from Kenny loggins and I said this is a real Kenny. Loggins just email me. It was really cool though and you invited me up we sat on your couch ouch and played winnie the Pooh and any song and the rest is history. Actually sixteen years still haven't hooked up. Ah It's been great. What's your favorite Kenny song to play live? Put Him on the spot. The real I think real thing but I don't know why it is because it that whole record actually leave of leap of faith eighth. You know it. Can you play. Let me think about it. I say we can do what conviction to Yulia. Would you be talking about leap the faith because there's another lucky lucky thing that happened with the tapes and Oh God that's a good story that one story Okay okay so leap of faith became one of those incredible moments in an artist career that chronicles a major change in in your life who was a transfer formation period of my life. My first marriage was coming apart and I started writing songs about that and in the process of that happening marriage came apart and within six months I was in a new relationship in a love affair so I got to write about that. So this becomes a cycle. AB- leap of faith is chronicles that entire process of transformation in disillusion and then falling in love and rebirth and so all the music that came out of that was just really in the zone and in the process of making the record. I'm about halfway through the record. Maybe three quarters of the way through the record and I decided to move my headquarters out of La and move up to Santa Barbara so we rented a truck and I put the Mitsubishi Thirty two track digital machines and the amps and guitars and all the gear in the truck and it was being trucked up from L. A. to Santa Barbara and on the way there the truck drivers stopped and went into get some lunch at Denny's or something and the truck got stolen and all the master tapes were in the back of the odd and so in those days. You had your master tapes. Was the original recordings of your Bass. Drums guitars may be work vocals. Maybe some over dubs. But that's the stuff you're GONNA go back to you need the most hype fidelity on that stuff and then you make copies copies of that will U. Dub everything down to maybe four tracks and that gives you a whole bunch more tracks to work with and the copies were called slaves so I was working on a series of slaves so we had all the master tapes and some of the slaves in the truck when the truck was stolen simultaneously Columbia. Olympia records got a new president. And the new president of the label was Donna. And Donna came and looked at the budget of the money I was spending and said I need to hear something. Out this record and The tapes were missing so I had to make a choice. Do I continue recording on the slaves and hope that the masters come back where you can reassemble everything onto one master tape or do I try to take take the time and money to recreate the master's re- we record them and try to fit the additional information anyway would have been a nightmare air. But I knew the minute I heard about it. A part of me knew that they were gonNA come back. And I didn't panic at all I talked to my Adar. My Bobby Colombian the and Bobby said you know about the tapes man. Really sorry I said that's okay. It's GONNA be alright. He said what are you on. I want some half and I knew that I just knew that it was going to be all right so going on about four five days before my deadline into show Don Aigner. My songs and I just kept recording vocals. I kept recording everything I could whine about five days before toward that deadline of meeting him And you know the the premise of that deadline is if he doesn't like what here's he's going to drop from the label because it's a tricky time you know for a record company and so About five days before the police found the truck about two blocks from where stolen all so they must have been looking really hard and they they but everything was missing dissing from the truck except the master tapes which had been moved from the back of the truck to the cabin locked up in the cab so that that was. It's like a miracle and we pulled all the master tapes into the studio Terry Nelson and I were up for like three days straight assembling everything so for me this it was like a huge rush because now is the first time that I got here all my stuff in one place at one time and the record just came together like the perfect perfect puzzle and I drove I drove to meet diner at his bungalow at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and on the way they are. SHEP Gordon my manager. You should probably interview him. We hugged up. You're right that he was there on the way their ship was pulling walls out of his office and he had his artists. You Know Racquel Welch and share people like that you had them come by and sign the wall so so we asked me to sign the wall and so on the way to this meeting with Donny. I stop at chefs and I signed the wall. It is a good day to die. which is a quote from from Geronimo? Going into battle while that the premise is that if you go in already dead you have nothing to lose. That's wild yeah. What made you what made you have the confidence to think? I just know. This stuff's GonNa come back. It's going to be recovered. I just felt it and I felt melted. It was that the music had poured out of me so effortlessly and making the record was like paint by numbers who exactly how I wanted it to go and I just felt like you don't get that level of art and that moment in your life and this had been six months of my work and I just said you don't get that inhabit go away. Wow so a little. Low level level of spirituality infused life and even more that. Look that you answer that you've talked to question what what is luck. They've made me question questioning. I think they would make you guys want to play something else. Yeah let's do conviction of the heart leap of faith and this. Oh Doc we go. This is a song that has been calder. Environmental Anthem I got asked to rewrite the lyrics to this to make it more on on point for for as an environmental anthem and I said No. It's it's done. It's not neat. Doesn't need to be rewritten. Because the environmental movement is not a it should not be a finger pointing movement about you do this and you do that except that for me. The the issue is a spiritual one. It's it's our it's each individual's awareness of his connection to each other and to the planet and conviction of the heart becomes a song about someone who wakes up from his sense of aloneness and gets that we're all in this together and and and we're our dreams that we won't say this is the time to bring and what promises and do we bone on bone nine waiting to the brain now with gun. Big Geno uh-huh Down Your Roseanne Walk. Long as map beat word not mine searches the path down shoe doors are closed. China learning wing Marcel. Never been and then he can do a a you saw the detaille world shape a it be full gear too many news today King. Isn't it John. Just stop some. That's to breathe. Breathe Rod Children Children. Can you heard hundreds China. Say Aware. Then you Kay Joe. Johns show Thank you Gilbert and the Tau and Ah mm-hmm win Ghana's applause in that room that standing ovation in the control room chairs. It looks field of is that I I heard you say some good songs come to you in dreams was that was that one that was well the term of a guy and I guy thomason I wrote that song and the the versus the the whole Down you dress. I walked alone all this stuff we wrote in the afternoon called tonight had dinner. I went to bed and and I dreamed the chorus the one with the earth with Scott. I woke up with that melody in my head amazing and I said I went to him and I said I don't know why but this belongs in that song so it took me a few years to actually understand what the connection of that refrain was to that song. So it'll so sometimes you'll dream pieces and the pieces won't fit into the puzzle until well down the line well at least as far as understanding right of it the music of it belongs belonged together honey retain it. Who who who can who can remember this too high weak- have taught myself to do that? Aside I remember I have usually a melody every morning and I and then I can assess whether it's worth recording or not while but you have a little hut hand and how they will. I have my. I had cassettes back in the day but now I have my iphone Jews. The memo's your wake up in the middle of the night and just put it right into. That was good. Yeah I'll lay there and I will actually think. Is this good enough to put down. Because I know I have to. I have to set the pitch. I have to say you know I'll I'll sing the triad so I know what I tell myself. What beat the song starts on because when you listen a few days later? You don't know if I'm if you singing the downbeat downbeat or what. It is back into that silence. I lay down. I play in the grew volume singing it and know what key it's in and then if I hear harmonic things to it chord changes. I have to lay those into outlined. What the harmonic changes would be and estimating a lot of work? It like really have to be motivated. I have to believe it's a really good song. Short awards yourself up. I always heard that like musicians have what they call the dummy lyrics. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah I most of my songs keep those. The the famous story of McCartney's yesterday eggs yeah and But celebrate me home. I thought was my dummy dummy lyric. 'cause I didn't I didn't think it made any sense and the ad and then when I showed it to Phil Ramone in New York for goes yeah the brothers would say celebrate me home okay. Tea for two or the dummy lyrics was it really. Yeah yeah he said these are the dummy lyrics going to write this song and the guy said no no those. Yeah Yeah Phil Ramone James Names. I mean you started working with the right people. Yeah so when you went Solo. Yeah got lucky again there. Why does every songwriter want to write a Christmas song? Other than the obvious reason the the obvious reasons the obvious reason that comes around once a year. That's a major copyright right. We laugh at how many Christmas songs written by by Julius but yes I am Jewish but yeah all the classic Christmas yes L. Jewish but a lot of they understand why you right at Christmas Christmas on call. Yourself a natural collaborator When I was in high school I read the the autobiography or no? The biography of Georgia's cotton. That's so fascinating that is so i. I don't know why I did that. It was the title of the book was the Great Collider. Yeah Adan there's something about that caught my attention when you're collaborating with with Michael McDonald or a Richard Marx and Melissa Manchester does it does it vary. There's the the the the. The process vary depending on people's strengths. Or Yeah it. It you as a collaborator. You have to tune into the person you're working with and and get a sense of both where they're at and what it is they can bring to the table and sometimes I lied. And sometimes I support court With Mike McDonald he's got a Michael has very distinct exact window that he lives in. And you have to meet him in that wheelhouse or or he's not going to follow you down just any road. You can't read a folk song with Mike. McDonald's just something for my new album. You can't write a follow. Just something hit me right now and it could be be cut out if it was probably frank. A- can can you sing something as Mike McDonald. Well actually you know when we when we wrote what a fool believes I heard him seeing that melody before you. Even before I met it was in the living room. The door was open and it was a hot day in the door was open and I was unpacking my guitar going up to his house and I heard him mm sing in booth go visual which ended up being the word words that body so so it change. Because I've heard you say even a song we'll just start with the phrase. It'll just start with usually as I like. I have a Shitload of things you said tonight that I kept in my phone. I'm going to use in a song and not give you credit. I love it right now. I know you've been waiting impatiently for us to do it that way. Fungi Taylor wants to sing with your way of footloose. Now that's the only reason I said yes to this show. Yes I love. You've always wanted to sing with my love. The sarcasm now now does she have stopping at these. You want to attempt that with them or something maybe slower in easier. I allow my fingernails percents. Let's give to try. Okay let's game so she we do it together or should we let me in on. Why don't you let me start and you can pick up the important? Okay okay. Yeah roadmap for me. Yes pages on that is I figured people would no here. I thought you could do the top and he could do if you don't do recognize it. Oh Yeah we could good. Let's record this because we could have a whole new song out of print up another John. The you know the verse. Oh Okay we'll good does it. So I'm I'm going to take it up to the first course and then you take the first course yes and then you'll still harmonize with us Possible it's I ah clock. I'm going to demonstrate morphing to collaborate. Okay okay common extension attention of Gilbert Godfrey. This is an education. This is scary back here. He wanted. We can't and we're so New York God be me now see then tear up and now you gotta cut loose. They way hiring a it sounds so good. You should keep going with your help.

Yeah I think that's the children's rehearse. Ah No there was a certain level of of Internet perfection. They're already gone viral dean. Pitchford ever speak to you again now now. I'm sure I'm opening the door so we have air. Oh a couple of quick questions from from From admirers and we'll get you guys outta here Rob Allenstein canny. Your first solo album was produced by the Great Phil Ramone. Can you tell us one thing you remember about working with them. Yeah well yeah we were we were. He was brilliant as everyone knows and and he knew it and we me were mixing the record which means we had everything recorded but then you have to put it all together and in the mixing mixing process. I was sitting next to him and I said you know I. I'd like to try something where we have. The the echo on my voice show up a fraction of a second after my voice which nowadays is called pre delay but it was a new idea back then and so the idea was to send the echo chamber to another track and then bring it back a little bit later and about two who hours later. The engineer had still not figured out how to do that and Phil took an ashtray and threw it across the room into the window. Wow and got up and walked out of the room mm-hmm because I'd hit one request and it was like stump the band he hated. He hated that well. I asked I learned to stop asking asking for Shit from that. Point just makes the ragged. I'll hang out here. Great Body of work in those years. Billy Joel Records. This is from your friend. Richard Marx I adore that man. Pleased ask him about the song. The one that got away is a song. Of course that I wrote with Richard Marx. The right and it is a song that I wrote for my son Cody Because in the process assist divorce He ended up living with his mother and so it was a song about my regrets. Happy Little Ditty. You know what I without my help can use sink some of that. It was written on Piano Richard Piano and I I. I don't know it that you're going to play the record at home. I can download it. Oh Aw let's see one last one from a fan I can't tell you how special this is from Jason Pagano. I can't tell you how special the song playing with the boys has always been in me. I read that you co wrote you. You also co wrote music with Melissa Manchester also door. Please tell me you've recorded music with her. As well. And where had I- I have not actually That was interesting and and you know thin ice kind of territory. Because I I as he said wrote whenever I call you friend with Melissa but but when we wrote it I knew it was the song I'd been waiting to record with Stevie and I had to tread carefully on that. Because they're both strong female. Singers Melissa still talks to me so I guess. The check's helped. She's a great talent. I want to ask you about at the digital and I'm all right. was that a nod to silhouettes to get a job. Yes yes it was and because for some reason I the line get it up and get you a job Jumped out at me when I wrote that. And and that reminded me of Gada Edda Job John and on Jonah and among remember that yes. That's a wild song for so many reasons and it's got that am I correct. I'm calling almost like a Gospel section in the middle all right. Yeah Was the head it just came out that it was it came out of nowhere. It was just. I don't know my tendency to to not want to hold a groove too long. I decided to send it off findus space for a minute. But the the character is listening to everybody but himself And so in that breakdown in the song I I say listen to your heart listen to your heart so became a kind of a serious moment of me. And Danny. It's a I I can't imagine that movie being a successful without that music. I mean it's such a part of that movie. I think I mean footloose musical. So so you kind of expect that but caddyshack gets a lot of mileage am from your music John. Tell me when when I saw the the rough breath cut he said Oh this part here. There's going to be a like a puppet like a gopher puppet dancing and that's a stupid idea. The everything worked about that movie. Even that's doomed gopher McKenna's stole the show is this bullshit because we have a lot of questions on the show that I sometimes while doing deep research I find bullshit. Were that's a good name for this segment of the show. This this bullshit time for bullshit you considered for the Kristofferson part get asked that a lot Where to come from? I don't know where it came from. Except that there was a moment where John and Barbara We were going over songs and Barbara said do you act. Would you be interested in being in in this movie and I said no but thanks while but she does your song in the movie she does. Yeah I've been. Yeah Yeah but That's the only only moment that we're acting was mentioned was sort of like you. Can you act you. Do this actually had a addition in lose use that term loosely for hair Miklos Foreman Milosz Mueller's form it. Yeah trillions I was just in that chair by the way we treat Williams. Oh yes the movie.

Scott Foley, 'Whiskey Cavalier'

Popcorn with Peter Travers

19:35 min | 2 years ago

Scott Foley, 'Whiskey Cavalier'

"Yeah. Hi, everybody. I m Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell. You. What is popping in the culture and ABC as a new series now called whiskey cavalier love that name and whiskey himself as here only. You are here they know with gay with no whiskey whiskey. I I'm I have a feeling I'm going to be getting a lot of whiskey in the in the weeks to come one whiskey three at this moment. Everybody's gonna think that's the perfect gift for you. For your birthday. It might be the perfect. Say it's not depends on what it is really wanna do. That's right. So instead of me having to explain this setup of this wheelchair. Chase. Who's got a I'm so jealous of behind and CIA having codename. It's cool. Isn't it whisky cavalier is if I was going to set it up, I play an FBI agent. Who is partnered with agent to lead a rag tag team of interagency spies to save the world. And sometimes each other. Watch out and sometimes watch out there sexual tension. There may be there should be. If there's not we're doing something wrong your arm. The two episodes. Yeah. I was it was great in the second episode. See you back with Bellamy young. I had a whole scandal. Flashback good. Thank you rate in that happened right away right away. It was for me. It was a great thing because we were so close as a cast on scandal. And leaving them was very difficult and Bellamy was just happened to be visiting. She was traveling around Europe with her boyfriend after scandal. And she was saying our house. Yes. You sing in her house, and we were out to dinner and Bill Lawrence, my producer called me. And he said, hey with Bellamy right now. Yeah, we're eating she's vegan eating some restaurant. And he said see if she wants to play the role of care, and I was like, oh, hey, you wanna play. Karen? She's like win winning the star. He's like two days since starting two days. Yeah. And that was it. And it was a great for me was a great transition because leaving that family and having there to sort of take me to this new one. What did you have like a half hour to go? Into this most to half hour. I literally left I shot my last seen on scandal. And drove straight from the scandal set to the airport to go shoot the pilot and Prague it was a quick quick turnaround. But this was something that I had been developing with Bill since they really announce the end of scandal. You know, I was I was fortunate that a few producers that I worked with before reached out and said paying what do you wanna do? You wanna do something and Bill was one of them. And and we came up with the sort of the feeling kind of show we wanted to do and then found a writer who had an idea that dovetailed with with that. And you make it sound so easy it, isn't it never happens that way. No, it never happens that way. This was we got really fortunate. You know, when when Bill, and I I sat down to talk about television. And what we wanted. We were fairly pragmatic about it. You know, we looked at shows that have have worked shows that have made money shows that stayed on the air for a long time shows that are fun to work on. And and for me, I missed the shows that I grew up on for whatever reason network television stopped making the light one hour show. I miss those. You know, I do miss the moonlighting and the Remington Steele and Matt Hugh, remember Matt Houston. I do I loved Houston. Those shows were. For whatever reason network television has it's like politics in America. You're either left or you're writing there's comedy or there's drama and can't mix. That's right. And I don't buy that. I shouldn't it life isn't like one thing. No, visit viewer. I wanna come home from this divided nation that we live in and turn it off. And relax. Enjoy something on television. Nothing wrong with that. Especially for your character. Who yes, this guy is probably the worst. I see. He is he's he's sitting there. He's broken up with his girlfriend. He's listening to Bonnie Tyler. Yep. He's doing, you know, a killer ballads singing them to himself in the middle of an action scene to watch people of proposed to here's a hopeless romantic. He really is. And that's a great character. I think so we haven't seen not forever not forever, especially not in this genre of television show. And that was really important to me. I want to relate to not just the characters I play, but to the characters that I watch on screen, and I think that the the old stoic emotionless. Hard action hero is is out of touch with what's going on today. I think the modern man is much more in touch with his emotions. I hope they are at least and this character wears his heart on his sleeve. He is. His belief system is a good one, an honest, one one full of hope, and and I love that about him. So you co star Lauren client she gets to play the hardest. She gets the play the. Yeah. She doesn't have a sentimental bone in her body. No. And that's, you know, look, that's that's mocks. You she will everybody marks. But yes on screen. She. Really been married for a long, Michael. Those of us who are married. No what Macher and kids. I'm mark. It is man. But yes, she is. You know, our our creator date Hemmingsen who wrote the pilot likens it to cheers with Scott Foley playing. Diane Chambers's good. Kind of makes sense. Yeah. It seems like great fun. It also seems exhausting because to do an hour show. And instead of shooting in Toronto like most normal to when they're shooting Europe. You actually go to these places. Yeah. We are the first network television show to shoot fulltime in Europe. Which is which is a great thing and crazy that hasn't happened before. But but it I think it costs money saving eater. Really? Yeah. It saves money to go to the places it saves money. The tax breaks we can talk business with tax breaks. We get shooting in Prague and the cost of locations compared to New York or Los Angeles, even Vancouver is so much less that our show would probably cost seventy five percent more where we shoot somewhere else. Look at that. Everybody should go to Europe. I think so and you not only did that you move the whole family to primary kids, and my wife, I got three kids in school in Prague. My wife is. Part of the show. How old are you kidding nine six and four? What's it? They wanna did they hate you for moving them away from their friends and saying they need we're going to. I'm going to be honest with you. Yeah. They have no choice. I assume. Nine six and four. Yes, they were excited to go. They do miss their friends. They've made great friends over there. You know, I lived overseas. When I was a child I lived in Japan. I lived in Sydney, we moved all around, and I credit the international traveling with with a lot of who. I am today. And I've always wanted to give that to my kids, but never knew how in this opera -tunities came up, and my it's funny. My main concern was not for my children. But for my wife, the hell is she going to do in Prague? It's nice that she's in the show. It's great. And that was a that was a big thing for me. You know, she's a successful working actress as well. And she said you want me to give up my career. So to follow you, and I said, no. But I meant. Was exactly the right. But I talked to I would never ask. Yeah. But selfish actors, but but you know, it worked out she's polish speaks fluent polish and polish is similar enough to check their both Slavic base languages that Maria that my wife is able to sort of be our our translator and take care of us over there. But what happens when you're not doing the show, go back? No. No. Yeah. The show's done in two weeks our kids are in school till June. We're gonna stay there till they're done with school. We have put. Fifteen European city names on pieces of paper and throw them in a box and every other weekend the kids are gonna reach in wanted time and polenta name. And then we'll go to that city and discover gonna travel around as a family. That's great. That's another movie. It's great. It's great. Just keep saying, let's it's great. Let's make this happen. Can't wait. I was joking with you before we went on the air about be six thirteen. We're Jake Ballard on scandal was well, he was many things. But when he was commanding that he was like a real rat bastard. He was. I sort of long for BC's yet me take care of all the come back. I agree. I agree. Look I loved that. Show will forever have a place in my heart. I loved playing that character. But as I'm sure you've heard time and time again, I played that role for I did over one hundred episodes of that, you know, and I wanted. Personally. I'm thank goodness. I'm a much lighter person than Jake Ballard. Was you know, I think we all are he had some some major troubles, and it was fun to dive into. But this character. I always say that I would make the jokes on the set of scandal before we started rolling that. I thought Jake should say to Livia that we're not totally appropriate for that show. But I get to now I get to in this show, you know, and and it's it's liberating. I love it. I'm looking at you. And I'm thinking of the shows that that you've done, and I'm hoping that even though which Lear which you endanger every episode. Yeah. We just assume you won't be killed. But look at the things that have happened to you scandal. You got off the hook easy just wound up in prison forever. I did. But I remember in Grey's anatomy, die on the operating table deadly. This ity Diana fire died in a fire. And then I lose the girl. I this is this part of your contract. Donna terrible way. I have been trying to rectify the outcome of most of my characters throughout my career for a while. And I can't quite put my finger on it. And I don't know if it's. Well, he just looks like a nice guy. So let's do something bad to him that no one would expect or you know, and I talked I did scream three and I talked. Oh, great director. Yes. Wes craven about that. And he said, well, we cash because no one thinks you're ever going to be a bad guy. I thought oh, well that makes sense. So that gave me a little window into people's process and the way they think, but I don't know. I didn't get the girl in Felicity. I didn't get the girl in scandal. I ended up in prison, basically when we created the show. Look, I can't die. I gotta get the girl. All right. That's all I want. It's all I want. We'll see what two people recognize you from. I can always tell when people for the most part when people come up to me what they're gonna know me from, you know, women of a certain age, it's Felicity sometimes scandal, if it's men over forty five it's the unit if it's sort of cartoon fans superhero, guys, it's scrubs or scream, you know, recently, obviously, the majority of people come up to me from scandal recognition, and they either I was such a Jake fan or they say, it's amazing. Tony golden I always used to to make a joke that it's impossible for a fan of come up without insulting you in some way, in some way. Yeah. Always. Yeah. I mean, I like you Jake, but I was really team fit always or. You look thinner on TV. Or why I thought you were younger or whatever it is. Like, I've known you forever. And I hated that show, but I like this show. Oh, thanks. Okay. So I got something sort of worked on my husband would never watch that show. He thinks everything you do is stupid. There's one hundred facades of scandal. That's right. Even though you came in this sex or something. Yeah. And I'm thinking, Felicity was four years college. So that had to be these people. It's not like he did a movie and you were working for three or four months. These people become your family that's talked to the what about the cast of Felicity do the cast of scandal. The people stay in each other's lives. The I have a scandal Tech's chain that once a day text chain. We're all on a group text, and we probably get an inappropriate text from one of the cast members every day who's the most inappropriate in that group. Josh Molina really by far. I mean, the hands down most inappropriate, but he's such a nice guy on the he's very Sweetman. Yeah. And a jerk. No. You didn't have a good end. You know that wasn't. He was he was shocked many died. He was so worried about dying every table read. He would flip to the last page to make sure he didn't die and Shawna was pissed that she didn't want anybody reading anything before we got to it was supposed to be cold read. So one time it was the fourth or fifth season. She wrote a fake ending and put it in his script only and he sat down next to me. And he flipped and he goes do. I think I'd I what. And of course, then he grabbed my script. And he's like, Nope. Nope. I don't die. It's okay. It's all right to do that. Then I know that you were the one that said you didn't want to listen to reboot. And then you just backed off that's namely stupid. I know I know it was I I have I plead guilty with an explanation. I think Felicity was a show that fit perfectly into a certain window a certain time people's lives and the character's lives. It started. When she finished high school ended when she finished college. And that was it. It should be done. That said I got on stage at the twentieth reunion at the the Austin television festival and had not been with all of these people in twenty years. And I I I'm gonna get emotional. Now. I I. Had forgotten how much they all meant to me. And how how much I missed being around them. And for that, very reason, I changed my mind and said I would work with these people again heartbeat. If you don't mind take a couple of questions from the world of social media. I would love that there. It is look there's Erin I just got done watching the pilots sneak peak and I loved it. And I'm already hooked. Thanks. A lot got fully. You've just pulled me into another TV series. What show are you hooked on? I just finished the bodyguard on Netflix, which I really liked disappointed in the ending. But I really liked it. Killing eve, obviously, I loved I been watching harlins the second season of hearts on Hulu, you mention that before real excitement. I it's so good. I think Samantha Morton is stunning. And Jessica Brown Findlay is amazing in it that like the acting is great. The writing is good the production values amazing. What else am I watching? That's a lot survivor really non scripted show. Yeah. Thirty eight seasons. I've seen every season. It is a fantasy of mine. You could be on it. It could be ring. I could be on it. I don't know if I wanna be on survivor. I just want to survive by myself on a desert island. You know, when you got three little kids, you just want to be on a desert island somewhere. Sometimes sometimes you don't want to bury you completely. No, no, no, only with love edgy say. I say that with love and Austin. Okay. We understand that. All right one more question from this world. I'm so ready for this show. Anything with Jake in it. Okay. I love that. When you get confused with. Carrie? Your chemistry with the Livia pope. Really? That's Carrie Washington. That's right. Was hot is it tough to find new chemistry with Maggie on this new show, Jake and Maggie together at last is it tough to find chemistry. No is the answer to that question. And I'll tell you why. Because I think. I go about this business, very sort of pragmatically if you treat everybody around you. Well, you're going to develop a report with them if you're patient, and you listen, it's gonna work out. And and and I am and she is, you know, someone said to me probably shouldn't say this on camera director once said to me, you know, Scott, you're not the best actor we started. It's like a fan coming up an insult that good. But I love you may not be the best actor, but people like having you on set. And I that would set me back for weeks must be nineteen years since I heard that. I can't stop thinking about how much therapy. I say that to to make a point that. That if you treat people, well, you're going to get results much quicker and much better than if you don't and and and as far as chemistry if I respect my co star in the actors with and I listen to them and patients and vice versa. You're gonna have that chemistry. You're going to get along. And you're going to develop a good working relationship. This is also the first time you've been on this show is the first time do not know it ends in song. No just a little snippet of song that in your heart with your Rolling Stone backward. Background got got to have. So it's got to have it, even if you wanna do total to the heart, which is the first time, we see you. I'm gonna give you another one. Give me anything. That's in your, and I'm gonna give you my wife's going to kill me. Good people smile and tell me I'm the lucky one and it's just begun. I think we're going to have a son. And even though we ain't got money. I'm so in love with you hunted. Kenny Loggins, right? Everything will bring chain of the I love it. And you why would she kill you? I don't understand she because my wife is nine years younger. She's going to say really Kenny Loggins Kenny Loggins, really there's no Konya late. Kenny loggins. What are you? But it's just so whiskey cavalier it so well for you to do that men hearts broken. That's the way it should forever. Scott, great, great to talk. Thanks, man.

We need to find the hidden world. I wouldn't destroy everything you rely. Nothing without to a grand. If grandma's succeeds. There won't be any dragons left, and it's up to us to put an end to it. So what are you going to do about it shoot up? We have one shot at. Baby to a battle. It couldn't find a sitter. Hit it really does. The king. Right. And. One. Good. Disaster. I told you have to see him. No more. You with me now. Positive. No right here when very beginning. I did not mind. Jay borshev. Sure. I did not mind his voice. This is what I gotta say that this the first time I didn't need this is the first time. I mean know 'cause the last two movies his of I can. I can never take maybe in the first moving when we when we meet him. He he's a nobody. Right. Still kinda but nerdy outcast of the village. It kinda works. It's a bit grading. Yeah. But you know, we got you. Now, Jane barn shower sounds like he's always talking his nose in. I could never take him as a leader MAC and never take him. Seriously. As lead us, a we was on come up at the end of that movie and by the second one whereabouts listening to him I could buy that. I can buy that at all. But this especially with that name man, you know, hit up. Yeah. That sounds like a slur. Like. Yeah. This because we don't respect you. So we pick up. Yeah. Hiccough hiccup ENA leaders name, you aside. Hiccup ain't even a human psychics. That's like that's like that the comedy relief dog Disney movie. In that in that voice that he had man Voinea. Don't you? Don't you ever? Tell me what to do coming up here talking lack? Now, I'll see what we're gonna do. What you're going to do is get the fuck away from me and shut up tearing narrow ass around and mine young damn business. That's what you do. Talking. I mean. Gonna leave me the fuck alone. What you're going to do. Didn't like it at the movies. The thing is I know is all part of the joke. Right. But it wasn't fun anymore by the time. The second movie came around you need to be elite of man top the first of all change your name. It ain't hick governor I don't care to change to he coop. The dragon master some shit. But don't did you can't take became be taken seriously with hiccup, and you can't be taken seriously talking like this be a man Bill leader, you going to do it you leading dragons, let some base in your voice, but some base in your voice. I couldn't stand it. But here hiccup, he actually okay the name change. But you know, what I liked about the character in the writing in this movie is that by the time, we get to third film. And if you take a little bit the second one care to really does evolve. Well, it's one of those things where with the second movie they kill off his father leader. So he has to ascend to that point. Yeah. No, he has to actually step. Yup. Man. And they do a great job by making him, unsure when you make a mature, you actually have evolved the character. You know, that's one of the things that sequels need to do is what comedy's fall into any mak- the trip they fall into when they make sequels the characters always stay the same evolve. True in on this being somewhat of a family film. So someone comedy to it was nice to see that they that they actually matured the character. However, they also were able to keep a lot of humor site there too. You know, it wasn't. It wasn't like they abandoned that completely and in having him evolve mature and being a leader. They also made him somewhat of a bed as. Allergy? No, I'm not a demon. See? L get now you have to ruin. All right. He's a bad ass now. But he was never a bad as he didn't turn around and do something like, no, I'm not a demon your enemies scare you every the whole point go with. Yeah. Everything that I just did just building him up. He just completely ruined. I just told the people. I don't know this Saint Saint hiccup down new back in the day shit. Tell them at the same. The other thing is I mean, he is you know, he has matured, but I was looking at it was like, you know, even he still looks like a kindle, I mean, even like later when he's he's got his facial hair. Like all right now, you're like a kindle with a beard. He kinda like Kenny Loggins, actually. Yeah. You know, what I'll tell you what he looked like damn I'm gonna find these long did those who don't know. For those kids who don't know Kenny Loggins, I'll man, you know, Kenny Loggins here almost I'm gonna tell you what he looked like because they tried to they tried to excellent showing with that beer. And then when he acts like in the pictures, he looks kinda cool when he takes off that that pem coat, and he looks he looks like a crackdown. Jake dillon. Wait a spider, man. Sees me. He will laugh his ass on y'all tried. He got he got a beard now, he's still a bit. Yeah. My man hair. What a bad it'd be a man. Let me talk voice, I'm telling. It makes me laugh is that everything you're saying is what I was thinking the whole time. I know nobody's thinking. I'm thinking. Hey, you know, we look at people. See, however, you talking about look we would talking about how the movie he does step up, man. And after that scene right there, you really do get moments. Where is win the character has to make decisions. I mean, you know, they they had the thought it was cool that they kept the character kind of the what the care that we know from the other moves in and try to they didn't try to hard. You know, they didn't they didn't make him do push ups and get all, you know, big biceps and everything he's in nice, though, Amy's Viking Viking dragon rider. You think he could you know, bulk up? I would I know if I would like I was back in either to tell him like if I was his dad. That's like, you know, you adopted right. Calling from Liz, this is not gonna work. No, hell, no. I'm not leaving my kingdom. Joe little narrows. Did not come from this sack. Right. You know, what they call? You hiccup? Well, always want a little girl. So you what man just skirt? Tramp around. But not you know, we say this would hiccup in hiccup really is. They really did. I like the way that they play with the character where he they did not force him to be too masculine to actually be who he is. They they they really did say leadership comes in. How you think? Right. Your smarts. And also your confidence because I've always liked that about the movie that against all these other big Vikings all these other big characters. All these other men Lee men out there in manly women. I mean, let's let's get every went look really every every in the village could beat his easily. But it's the it's the confidence that he has. And I liked that. And it actually shows you actually believe that when he's telling people what they need to do. It's out of not because they can overpower him. But because they can respect him. And I'll really enjoyed the because he's smart. Yeah. Exactly. No. I really enjoyed this carrot this version of the character that we had here. Nothing's accidental when it comes. Too old grim lives for the hunt to get inside the mind of his prey to control its every choice. They sold a game to him. Well, he doesn't know who he's playing with now we've dealt with his car before underestimate him hick up my woods, it will be back. Then we'll be waiting for you hear that got some base up in there. They won't be waiting bar. Look for him. He's a bit overconfident in line, actually. But at least he's got. We'll be waiting. Well. He look he got. He mean mugging there. We'll all be waiting on them. Right. You know, what hurt him to do them? The stair. We'll be waiting for. I'm not talking to my nose. Now. We're actually yeah. You know, a little deeper now, I really really liked that man. I I I like I said, I'll be honest with you mend the character kinda great meet through some films. I finally fill like feel like the to the point where I enjoy him. Yeah. But, you know, getting SME I don't I don't know you might have liked him from the last movies too. I don't know. No. I liked what his character was about in the first movie. But hiccup himself least J barrels voice was a lot to take. It was good in the first movie after while. But what I liked about his character was that? He sure he wasn't big like the Vikings. But he was smart. He can create inventions. He he was basically like, hey, you guys got all the Braun, but I got technology. Yeah. This is what's going to win the day. And it is a movie about brains over Brian and not even just you know brains as an embedded in. You was like, listen, you know, I being a leader is not just brute force. It's about thinking things through it. Not like the way people respected him in that. I didn't like the way. He was man. You know, I like the way he was when he showed a tough side. He kept his humor. And I like the scenes that he had with his girl whose voice by merica wasn't him American for. Oh, yeah. Are America for Erica for? There was the, you know, the few scenes, you know, sitting around a flirt meet each other and playing around and it fills a light because Phil like a real couple, you know in the early stages of love courtship and whatnot. About that the felt like, you know, for animated characters man felt like an actual interaction between two people, especially you know, when you think considered these two animated characters in a very fantastical setting. Sure, the thought that they got that down, you know, and speaking of tendon tenderness in his movie in and. An emotion. I like that they brought drawed Butler back me too. Because I was actually upset they killed him off in the second movie. Yeah. You know, I was too. But it's okay. From half to parents their way. What are you actually, I can do this? This movie made me see why they'd probably killed them off. But there was there were a lot of scenes, they're not a lot. But this two two flashback scenes in those scenes with little hiccup. And his dad again was voiced by Gerard, Butler and those scenes will very moving, man. And when I looked at that, again, I thought you know, what with the with the pollution that you've done with this character and making this character more likable, it even made the flashbacks they've been pulled me in a little bit more in. And it's just you know, the is just really cool to see like this big strong, man. Take guard down for his son. I mean, they moments where he just kisses them on the head. He hugs him. I was looking at that. And I was really mad at that. Right. There. Talk about you know, you talk about looking at scenes that bring up motherhood shit. I'm gonna go make a baby tonight. I wanna be a daddy. But those sailors who turned back to tales of a gate waterfall and guarding the entrance to our hidden world. Not just the nasty hiccup, but a line from which all dig- in scum. Fury's specially night. Fury's rose are scary. Don't you what he one day? I'll find the hidden world and seal it up so that people and I. Begins fate. No more but dead instincts kicked in awe today, especially when they were these girls behind me. And then they were like every time they showed little hiccup. They were. And I said shut the fuck out. I'll tell you what. Once you go watch the first movie again where he spent the whole time looking at it sign going. Oh my God. What a disappointment hick up Jesus, man. Could you could you help out those gadgets away and come help us? Forget it. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. It was so much disappointment. I liked the way, and you know, what you look at this associate too because it you could see those was so much hope in his I promise. My son's going to grow up building strong like me. Ten years. Why do you think about my schematics? Me life. Just feed him to the dragons and put him out of his misery. The dragons don't eat them that Garros with. Well, a little hiccup though. But a little hiccup got to me, man. I'm glad there was some serious moments in there with hiccup Blair, we some tend to moments in there with his dad and his girl because while he was getting serious everybody else had nothing, but jokes. Yeah. And not the guide to the galaxy type jokes is these the the lame. Oh, just whatever gags we can throw together. You know, the thing is that first movie, I really love that first movie except for two things and that being Jay Baer shells voices, we covered, but the other was the side characters. So I was like man these everyone of these side characters are just after thoughts, and they just thought well, we'll get comedians to do their voices. Kristen wig, TJ Millard Jonah hill and that'll fill it in. And I always notice like one thing about that that first movie where they really put no work into the side characters there, but they're all for just a little bit. And they just kind of annoying, but whatever but now. Now in this movie there half the movie, and I was like all right? I I can't take it with these guys. Yeah. The side characters is movie are in the problem with the side characters is that. All there for funding. Not even just reactions. Did there for funny comments? No matter. No matter how bad something happens. No matter how much they mess up the always respond. Whoa. Did you see that? You know the clueless. Yes about everything and they're their anachronistic. They don't fit the time period. I am okay. With that. Because Disney, you know, a lot of family films characters act like like, it's not as it's not unusual for care to act like out of the time periods tonight. Even have the same accents in the region at the end. I mean that was the case then everybody jungle book be talking like that. Well, no jungle books in India. I'm sorry right conduct. And you're right. You're right. No. You're right. But you know, but they ain't got no Indian even they do not all of them all are pool or something. But okay, technically and. I know you're gonna jump on me for this. But the jungle book is it's it's it's because India was colonized by by Britain. And it's written by Reggie Kipling. Who writes a lot of stories about the British colonization in that Ehrmann? I'm glad to what you telling me. And I don't explain nothing about talking to thing. You. Thank you. Scoop up to boot. Hang none of that reason ain't got nothing to do with colonizers. All right. I'd try. Obsessed with American music. So Balu had all the elbow from the jazz. Coltrane? But I hear what you're saying. But doesn't that does don't mind problem that I have you is that no matter what danger is about? They don't have a re they they don't have a proper reaction to it. Right. Everything. Like either they're endanger our they're causing danger and the whole time like, whoa. Are. They got something you'll hit up. Check it out, man. You know, it's like that. No one is ever. In fear about something Mohan is ever treating the the the the the danger urgency. Right. And that's what that's what gives your danger. That urgency is how people react to it. And if you get people who are glib or seem to not be focused on it or oblivious to it takes the teeth out of it. You know, and I get it, man. You know, it's almost like the they make these characters this silly. Because they want to keep things from getting too scary. The, you know, the the because you know in the movie. They do have some intense scenes. I mean, you you messing with dragons. And and in his movie, you know, when the villain comes about not only does he have is owned dragons. But I mean, he is some bad drag as he's got there. Not spit acid. They they have scorpion tails, and they spit acid, and they just leave destruction wherever they go like, they can they they in the neighborhood something burning everything is burning down and their intense scenes, where they, you know, you know, there's a lot of destruction going on around these characters, and I think kids can be they can this is still a family film. And it's a kids film, mostly the more than a family family parts, and they want to keep silly kids film to they want to keep a certain air of silliness. And let the kids know it's going to be okay. You know, it's going to be the problem is that like I said it gets so silly that even even four kids movie I like to feel like. I like to feel like there is at least a small moment of suspense in there. But if you'll characters they just got chuckles, and they cracking jokes in every scene, even when the villains around. Well, I guess I none wrong. I'll laugh it. It seemed to be infectious because that only that you have those characters who where the comedy released from the earlier movies comic relief now. But even bunch of the Viking warriors just seem like they were I don't know oaths and and comedy relieves in and clueless. And it turns into one of those things and it happens in Disney movies a lot where all the comedy relief characters have to fight off the invading army, and suddenly somehow they got these skills with the beat people with pots and pans or just bumping into him. And it's always like they're beaten them by accident, which makes you go. Like, oh, these Hinton that bad we're again with and yet it happens in this all the time L. Every fight. Yeah. And I I'm gonna tell you something, man. I don't I don't mean to. I don't wanna be mean spirited here. I hate to say it. But some of these caters stupid they need to die. Yeah. You were jeopardizing the whole village the whole community you need to go. And I'm not even playing this one scene. Here was somebody excuse my language. They fuck up majorly in couldn't be. Any less concern? And nobody even turns around there's not one moment is like what the hell is wrong with you know, they just kind of like, oh, well, just your character. What you do you do stupid shit. Again, if look if y'all laughing about it must not be too bad. I'm not I'm not worried if you like it, I love. Couldn't say it any better. I will say some of the humor worked well on some parts. I mean when it was meant to be silly. Like, I was laughing was his name. He was fat. Now, he's kind of he he goes between being sexy and fats, Johnny hill. Yeah. Joni hill, man. His character was snap cloud or whatever. Who on why they made him net? Big because he's actually the shortest one the Bill. Right, right. I love that. He had the t really did have the short man's complex. He just everybody was taller than him. He was just like a little Chihuahua always pointing him out watching you and people like it though. Cast them aside and trying to hit on hiccups mom, the whole time, can you blame? No, I cannot. I cannot got the voice of Haiti Blanchet. Yeah. And the body of every find chick out there. It's like, yeah. Man. It's like that's hiccups. Ma I know. Look, I hit goes mom and you look at hiccups, Dan. Like what happened to do? Really odd late 'til that wasn't is. No, it was not man. No, no. It was a hiccup with some nineties pill. Somebody. Yeah. Dad went off somewhere had sex when L for something. You ain't no Viking might at. All you barely a man. But no, you know. It was funny. The way he was hitting on his mom. I thought that they could push that a little bit more could've. I there's little things like that. Whereas you could push this more. If you weren't juggling thirteen different plotlines, you weren't dig xactly to doing all these plotlines and even the villain, man. I got to say when the villain came in. I thought. Grimm. Oh, the grizzly. Who is voiced by f Murray Abraham. Well, he. Ladies like what you hear? But grim the grisly. I got character. I came in. He starts out cool. He's got a cool. Look, he he's got a very very cool and menacingly swagger to a man, and I liked the design. He kind of looks like a cross between. I'd finally figured it out. I was like what does he look like he looks like a cross between Haiti's from from Hercules and Billy idol. But those two together I love the design net character, man. But even after a while he was just a stock Bouhad billon man, every every one of these movies is it somebody who's got a hard on for dragons. It's coming after them. I was like. We get in the same villain every time. He just switches, costumes and comes back. But yeah, he's he you're right. When he first shows up, oh, this guy's going to be a bad ass. It takes very little time before you like he's kind of not that affective. No, he doesn't plan as well. As he thinks he does know and I'm not scared of him. It's only mad at time. Because when he starts out when you start out he he's like a bond villain like you sit in the dark wood hiccup come comes in like good evening. Mr hiccup. All we got them Lightman in the darkness smoking something. But you know, he, you know, he comes in. He's very menacing. But after a while once he starts hooking up with those other side cared Silla shit kicks in then the silliness affects him to after a while. Like, you say he just he just becomes a more of an of an opposing presence a force of nature that an actual care. Yeah. He's he's something they have to deal to defeat. Exactly Ness too bad. Because that character looks looks looks great. I'll tell you what the movie lacks urgency as we mentioned earlier it really makes up in as the one. I mentioned mentioned the motion. I think that you know, there's a lot of scenes in there. But they do not only not only. Right. But they do very well that pulls you in what the with the characters that they choose to develop. Well, but also they make it up just in just in scope, I gotta tell you men the these movies have always been known for like the first one. He said, okay. You know, what this one the first how to train you drag. And this is one of the few movies that I've seen where I don't mind watching it in three D. Oh, yeah. No of all movies. I've seen it's one of the best for the scenes with dragons flying. I rarely see three d work better than that. But this one man this not only has again, great flying scenes, but just beautiful environments. Oh for imagery when they get to the hidden world, which is showing your right hand the trailers, I'm spoiling thing. It is gorgeous man in all its now you look at this. And it's just lavish soak in all the colors, so vibrant. I wish I had been able to see something like this on an I'm ex screen when they go there. It's amazing. It's it's it's almost it's almost too much when I say scope because they got scenes in here where every movie they just increased the numbers of dragon right because hiccup keeps bringing back more dragons. It's at the point. Now where the Bill is just looked like flies buzzing around shit. I. Wait. Let me start off with. It was barely dragons. Now, we got a drag an infestation there. It's almost like the pissed. Yeah. Vermin because they're gonna they're gonna consume resources, and you don't have enough to to satisfy all know, somebody got pulled hiccup assign man, we gotta start eat so many. We got to Spain neuter. We have plenty of sheep over the. Oh. No, they people now. My wife that was cool. But man, we gotta do something. They might get me. You know, you you betta spay neuter summer, these we got we gotta take him bagging euthanize put a Bill in the back of the head of something. It's the scope of number of dragons that they have in. This is amazing. The when you when you see these scenes where it's just it's it's it's it's it's overstuffed almost with dragon characters of so many different types of species. It's it's an incredible site. The obituaries just keeps us busy in. Usually when you say something visually busy. That's a criticism not here. But not here now business since that is always giving me something to look at. Yeah. Always. You know? The musical score with this is something that I really enjoyed because it went with the scope of some of the scenes very sweeping score. Now forgot the name of the composer, John Powell. Thank you. Thank you. My man Jesus. This guy is fucking jokes. You want to break it to them enough. No, no. Thank you. Thanks, lou. No, thank no loop. We just don't know that was a big help. And I'm mean that man. Thank you so much. If you miss anything else. Please Bill Frey. Let me know. No, this John Powell did a great score to fit the imagery here, man. And I really loved it, man. It's it's so scared that when I saw these characters who was going to get wacky wacky the scoring. No, no. It stays to the imagery stays to the environment. And scenery. And I will say this the animations incredible. I don't know if they had. Motion capture involved in this. But the the the just the physical acting of this care of these characters right down on the body movements to the to the the the the facial expressions. Their thought that they were so expressive that's one of the reasons why a love the the design of the griswald, whatever name grimly. Yeah. That's suck Remmel him. That reminds me of those Rankin bass stop motion animation characters. Yeah. Yeah. You're right, man. You know, what it is a lot of those? If you ever watched any stop motion rank and best features from our our shows from back in the day, the always exaggerated people's faces around they were very long like that. And just that looking is everything smile yet. You know, what I love about his character, though, is that? They did animate him to be an asshole too. Say what you will about him. Does nothing too much about his character. Because his character is like he did the common. It's almost comical he did one sheet thing and after that his goal in life was to be shitty person to that. Right. Right. Right. And there's not much to it after that. No real. Hey, I'm good at one thing being an asshole, but they animated him so well to fit there, and I loved animation in this. Although there's one sink what's in here. And I'll look how you feel about this Monday Novus curious to ask you about this because this was the I was dozing off with this, man. There's one scene while it's animated very well. It's toothless in the new of was the Spitfire the knife unite beer that they have the female night theory. They have a sequence where the the the mating dance on the courting sequence. And it just kinda goes on and on as it does. I mean, this is a long scene, and at this point, I'll I'll just sit in like may need to get a room a something because I'm this fucker. She about to get friends with these. It was going on. It was gonna so long almost break this up. He got a woman he got a girlfriend already going out in. Is so low does off it kept going. It was a meal with just tired. I was I was kinda does it myself beyond as I say fessed up will admit it. I actually a lot of. Yeah. It went on to long. But also, I it's been bugging me. But I know I've seen that somewhere before not exactly that. But something with our character who is not human meeting, the female and having the whole dance ritual and outmanned you blowing it you gotta get it together. I wish I could just lock onto which movie it is well movies. I've been done multiple times. You know, what it reminds me of obscene movies that stop with animated set pieces. Some of you might not know what I'm talking about. My bring 'em all references. But I'll bring up a couple anyone one. You might know when you might not sometimes when they stop just as for the animators to have fun. Yeah. Sometimes it works. If you remember the wizards bul from sword in the stone. Sure. It was just really was just a sequence for the enemy. It didn't need to be in the movie other than it was cool. But it but it worked. Yeah. It's a classic scene. You don't I'm talking about go look it up. I'll probably have editors put it over this discussion. So you can see the other one is another Disney movie Pocahontas. They had a scene where the dog was chasing, the raccoon and the movie just stopped to let them just have a little bit of funny business. Yeah. Because almost two animated just had some ideas for some cool animation. And that's what this seem like it will fit start out kind of cool because this maiden dances funny. But then he just kept going and going with thank all right now. It's just an animated sequence. Now is not really for the audience. I felt like they were hoping if we keep doing some will come. We'll figure it out. We'll get a go even though it takes a lot of that. That to me. I was I was saying look if she ain't going fuck you. Now, she ain't going. Give it up, man. Move onto something else plan. You. I feel to a lot of it was like she plan you. Yes, she working for that too. I'll tell you though, man with all this though, I have to say that it is the emotional arc of the movie that got me, it is the you know that. That in the. House follows through with the theme. One of the things I love about this is that been third movie if follow through follow through with his theme. Even those silly, you know, family film leaning towards mostly kids moving if follow through with the theme to difficult in and you can probably guess was happening. I'm not gonna say to spell it out for you. But the theme of these of these movies have always been loss loss has been hiccup in the freshman doesn't have as mother got his mother bagging his second. But a little bit in the second one, but lost his father. There's always been about loss mainly for hiccup. And now Las laying loss. Yeah. He even lost a limb. And you know, now, this is dealing with probably the hardest thing for him to have to do and doing that, you know, having to tap into admit that they're still love which other but your lives have gone in two separate directions. You know that I think that's going to get a lot of people out in. And they know what they're doing. That's why the end of the movie with this because it will for of people put a lump in throats, I was looking at this. And it's like man, I don't even hang around these two that much and I'm gonna miss this. You know, look, maybe I wasn't a huge fan of how to train your dragon. But there was confident knowing that hiccup and toothless had each other. And you know, I liked that they saw it through to the bitter sweet end. I'm not as drawn into the move is. I would like to be but for the parts that did drama in those with parts that really counted. In in Imlay mitt to mostly for laughs. I dig it some really good deep moments in here. And I did laugh at the moment they wanted to. I just think that it was missing this just a little bit of suspense to some. So therefore, I can't go full full price. But I can give it a strong matinee still think it works. Great for kids. I still think you know, for dolts just going to be moments in near like, I said it will pull after your heart, and it will work in those those most important moments. Okay. Well, I thought the when they get to the loss strongmen era. Okay. I'm sorry. Go ahead when they get to the loss world are they the hidden world. They made a big point of saying V seriously. Really? Yeah. It's an Email. It's like when when you talk about this movie, make sure you you listed as how to train your dragon, the hidden world, just put hidden world, the hidden or okay? Yes. Anyway, the hidden world is beautiful, and it's really impressive. I so wish we could have spent more time there because I mean, you get to it and you like all right money shot. This is what this is all about. You're not there for very long, which is too bad. Because it's the thing I found the most impressive about the movie. And it's probably the only actually the only thing I was actually impressed with the things you say you talk about being good are good the score the animation. No complaints whatsoever. And they upped the ante and still within that. I can see within this movie that it's it's relying heavily on. Everyone's love of dragons to begin with like with dinosaurs. And the cuteness of toothless and their love of the the love affair between toothless and hiccup and just and just really so much about the the cuteness of it. And then everything else filled. They would just completely lazy on everything else. I was like, man. Yeah. There's no suspense because of how they undercut it. But also almost every element is movie, story wise and just writing wise like, yeah, this was taken from this movie came from that that's a trope that's been done. So many times. Can I ask you what movies that you just out of curiosity? What moves you saw? That was pulling from its man it. It's a lot of other animated movies to the point. And I wish I could give you a list of the other ones because I sat there and it had some time to go like, okay. 'cause all the whole time. Like this just feels too familiar, but not like, it's all one movie just just from different just different pieces in it could be pieces that have been taken from other things. So where every part of this was just so predictable. And I was after we had the cut your cut that bitch off who's again, not as the first one. But better than second one. I'm like, I don't know if it was better than the second one. I liked it wasn't just a remake of the first one because it was doing some different things. But it's different things. Just from other movies too much time on the side characters that wasn't but wasn't well planned. It's it's very secretly. Except that they were like, hey, but doesn't matter as long as we're gonna show a beautiful laws world, and we're gonna stick the landing with the the inevitable conclusion, which they do they you know, they they know how to tie a bow on it. And so it doesn't feel so much like an obligation. But it felt like more of a we know we have to do. And we. We have a deadline to meet, and it isn't even matter if we work hard on this other part because we're gonna we're gonna get these three things done, and everybody's going to be happy. And that's that's fine for them. I found it to be all that pleasurable of an experience. I it's it's a low matinee for me blow men. But man, you you have a way with I know what I'm saying. That's that's good. You surprise me. Because I was like that sounded like a rental. I actually I take it back for me. It is a rental. It's a high rental, but considering that it is a kids movie that it that is doing a good job of targeting its audience. I can hear grown people in there who were motion about things like, you know, what is that working on me at all? But I respect that. You're getting that reaction. That's that's the reason I'm giving it a low Matt also it is that that kind of movie where look if you're gonna go see it, it should be in the theater where it's big because it has a big scope definitely right about that definite rant about them. Yeah. Yeah. You ought to creek drag dragon was coming in. About my movie nano, so not not not not bad not bad at all matinees all around. Barely barely. And not deep concern me packing. This is a new kind of enemy. We need find the hidden world. I wanted to sort everything you rely. Nothing without to drag him. Sky dining, this is amazed. Yep.

1619, Episode 3: The Birth of American Music

"From the new york times i'm michael borrow today on the daily <music> from the new york times magazine. I'm nicole hannah jones. This is sixteen nineteen in this week wesley morris on the birth of american music uh <music> aw aw so last fall fall. I'm at my friend's house. We are making dinner. I'm chopping vegetables and i asked my friend brett who was was cooking with me. Can you put on some music and he said where do you want to listen to and i said have you ever heard of your rock and he said what i said yacht rock have you ever heard of this and he goes no i have not so he finds the art rock station and pandora which i don't know why or how he's still a pandora guy with all due respect dora. He is one and he finds the iraq station at some point bright has to go running aaron. I think i might have sent him on one. I don't remember but he's gone so i'm alone just me with the vegetables and it gives me plenty of time to really think about the songs i'm here. We're talking about music made between the years of i don't know i would say like nineteen. Seventy five to about nineteen eighty three things like the speed aces how long serving speed heels crop up to doing summer breeze. I'm hearing things lake steal away by robbie pres and the doobie brothers what a fool believes it is like our soft raucous period in american popular music. The joke of iraq is that whoever invented it whoever's making a playlist of songs is basically saying that they're inconsequential and that what's in them doesn't matter but what i know i'm hearing is something bigger and deeper than that. Every song has some thing about it. That is similar to the other songs in the morning. I'm hearing things like rosanna by toto auto which seems perfectly banal is a really good beat sort of bills else to its chorus but then at the end cinch and i'm hearing agree do <hes> harmonies of the fifties and sixties and there is something jazz like in the syncopated music of feeling dan you can hear in somebody like michael mcdonald <hes> aw that is like a gospel break down. I'm <music>. I'm hearing in all of these songs is basically blackness it and the song in which i am hearing the deepest and strongest and most powerfully at least to me standing in that kitchen shopping those vegetables was when kenny loggins this is it comes been dancing then among its kind of loose lease disco lake rhythm to it 'cause a lot of percussion sort of going back and forth around sure your kenny loggins is basically sing whispering verses from the song as try dr doing this very light coup de and then in the pre chorus kenny loggins disappears and who shows up michael mcdonald giving kenny loggins plenty of time time to gather himself committed when he sings the word miracle he doesn't sing miracle. He goes like he is scraping the bottom of the pan to get all of the did bits off of it before you pour ingredient scraping the pan is the blackest thing you can do a senior in here's kenny loggins as this white artist doing it and then the gravy comes. It's at the top of the church. At this point he his leg elevated himself to the rafters no more he is like at the roof trying to clear a way to get to heaven but there's just church ruth in the way he's not the greatest singer but there's a kind of gumption nerve to the singing of the song cannot be a tip of the hat to him. I just had to stand there and i just i actually cracked up. I had i just put down the knife and <unk> cracked up and it felt so pleasurable and then sort of thinking about all these other singers. I love how ooh i'm thinking about anyone else dean about any straight to carrie george mike then back on. I think about chris stapleton barroom do practices kind of muscle blues that gets written off his country because he's a big white guy and a hat a- and one of the many phases in which david bowie really wanted to make aren be and so music this is the sound not it just of black america but the sound of america it is deeply american almost especially when it sunk by british people like david bowie and any lennox naming amy white house and it fills me with pride like i know that there's something irresistible and ultimately inevitable about black like music being a part of american popular music but it also reminds me that there's a history to this a very painful history and and in the most perversely ironic way it's this historical pain that is responsible for this music and some of the oldest reportings we have black american music from the nineteen thirties piece and their songs would've been sung by americans born into slavery. There's this one called old ship of zion. You can hear these four. Four men voices are moving in and out of each other. It's beautiful and it's also set you can feel deal that in your boats and then there'll be music that was completely the opposite like old coon dog for instance ed. You can hear the playfulness in the song. You've you've got this banjo. This great african instrument that becomes the bedrock of american music in so many ways and that thing is dancing aw then we'll be turner. Landon cohen you. Have someone like billy mccray conor blow. Oh my god alma here in his singing. Ooh we would now call something like the live long day. Glo dearest interest in years of hard work an unimaginable sorrow all weekend. It can also here in all of this music in <music>. This undeniable sound hope in all of these melodies and cadences and emotions are things that would have been passed down generation after generation. It's what you would have heard on a plantation. It's what you would have heard walking by a plantation. It's what you would have heard. Passing a black person listen doing his job entertaining himself doing the drudgery of work the way the guy named thomas dartmouth ryssdal sometime around the eighteen thirties as the story goes t._d. Race a white man this anonymous. Nobody actor trying to make ends meet one day. He's touring with troop in cincinnati or maybe was pittsburgh. We don't really know but the myth basically goes t- raise happened upon an old black man cleaning a horse in a stable. The man was doing his job on property owned by a white man named crow ruling heard the tune. This all black man was singing. Oh by the way this man moved his body. He was cleaning this horse. We don't know what toon man would have been singing. Go out and we go whatever race here is coming out of. This man's mouth is captivating captivating and what he sees is an opportunity <music> <music> because show these thirties looked like this talion. Operas british plays entertainment imported from europe. All the people performing this stuff would have been white. The audiences would have been white after all. It's eighteen thirty pretty. Slavery is in full effect and when it came to entertainment there was nothing new nothing truly early american intini race. Here's this black man singing the song moving his body in this particular way ding a light bulb goes off and he takes that light bulb and runs all all the way to the theater. He figures out a way to meltdown some cork. Let's cool presumably takes a raga agar. Maybe even as handle school enough and then he paints his face black. Oh ooh he goes out on stage but instead of doing his regular act. He's got this horse groomers to accept now. He's given the tune lyrics. I'm missing galvin boy. I'm just from cook lajos. I'm glad you're seeing song my name's jim rome we labout and caring about ooh about a gym and the lyrics give the worst groomer name and the name is jim crow. The crowd goes crazy. They sell bananas. The man gets twenty encores. This is the first time a paying audience is basically electrified by a white man with the black face. This is the night that jim crow was allegedly introduced to america this mascot of american racism and this is what america america really wanted which was its own original art form that is not an italian opera. It isn't some british guy coming over in deaths being being all over them and here is thomas dartmouth rice giving it to them. This is the night that american popular culture was born <music> uh to kill a mockingbird is the most successful american play in broadway history says sixty minutes rolling stone gives it five stars calling it. A landmark production of american classic to kill a mockingbird is all rise. One of the greatest place in history raves n._p._r. The new york post says it will change how you see the world. This is what great feeders for all rise for her police to kill a mockingbird a a new play by aaron sorkin. This phenomenon says new york magazine on broadway at the shubert theatre. Get tickets at telecharge dot com the war on a long all boy. You know how it goes. Sensational thing happens and then everybody wants to get on the bandwagon and do their own so you have other minstrel acts who come along and try to do with thomas dartmouth rice's doing a song and a dance and a black face on their white skin and then from these solo acts. You have basically bands for me. The end the bands have all the instruments that you would have in the band that you'd recognize now. There is a banjo and a fiddle and tambourines and percussion in the form of bones which would come from a pig. Sometimes a i think that is the formation of what will become the minstrel troupe and the place that minstrel see took hold hold was in the north places like philadelphia and new york and boston where you'd have these theaters dedicated to minstrel acts were mentioned mentioned acts would just move into a theater in do their act night after night after night after night and a lot of these performance never been meaningfully south to have a meaningful oh relationship with black people and so they just made stuff up based on what they thought black people were like meringue eh you why they were able to draw on things that were coming to america from other parts of europe like the poco the b. allen ganda rounding close and and so you had over the course of the formation of this culture and inherent mix you had some amusing mix of an imagined blackness real actual irish melodies ladies and polish music with what we would now call gospel but spiritual harmonies interlaced together with this african banjo basically welding into a fusion that becomes the thing that everybody wants to try to do the whole thing to sweeps the nation and for the rest of the nineteenth he'd century. This is the shit. Can we say that very much and so for the rest of the nineteenth century. This is the shit. This is america's primary form. An entertainment. People are going crazy for black-faced minstrels. You have little boys going to bed dreaming about how they can become part of the spinster. This show some of those people having these dreams go onto become people like stephen foster it even foster the man widely credited as being the father of american music some of his songs some of his most famous songs. You know songs. You love songs. You still sing songs your children. If you have them. They still sing some of those songs written for black face performer can finger and if you listen to something like camp down races you can hear in it all of its minstrel properties the song of course this is written in so-called negro dial instead of saying go in you're seeing wine line run all night all day saying like instead of saying o f of you get a lotta di for sticking in a big money. This is a white person persson imagining how a black person would sing the song and that was the gold rush era hit. This is the i wanna hold your hand of eighteen fifty one. A part of the problem that we still live with now is that it was so much the heart and soul of american culture that it wasn't that it became not racist. It just was a thing that you did if you wanted to be an entertainer at any point after eighteen thirty you in all likelihood or at least gonna try to be a black face minstrel. Even if you were black back to the civil war ends and there's an opportunity for black people to perform they have to do what the nation wants in what the nation wants at that point is black face and now giving you noise in temple f._b._i. Miller and scott mankato so black people blacked up it performed as black people who weren't actually blessed you leave this man i have he was wrong would you and now we're tired by the time you have black people painting their faces black to perform as black black people the only question you can really ask at this point is what the hell is going on. Why is this happening so captivating about seeing black people represented represent this way. Why would a white audience of clamored for it so much. I think one of the things that it offered was an opportunity to feel good about a thing that actually felt felt really bad at the time people are really torn about whether to continue with slavery or whether abolish it the mitchell show didn't really give you an answer but it provided a platform by which you could either escape from actually having to think about that question that really was tearing the nation apart or depending on what show you will wind up seeing it fully engaged you in the lightest possible way about enslaved people and how you didn't really have to feel so bad for them because they like being enslaved. You got to laugh at a thing that you actually felt so anguished about you. Get to watch these black people who are really a source of national national agony outside the theater become fools inside the theater and in sitting in that theater watching these white men in black face make fools of black people a wide audience could feel culture. They could fill civilized. They could feel superior to the people they were watching be made fun of and in a crazy way watching them to humanize what really have been opportunity for a white audience to feel so much better are about their own humanity by the time you get to the twentieth century mitchell see he is still with us. It is the basis upon which american movies are built this country's first movie blockbuster he w griffith's the birth of a nation full of white men villainously and buckets. I am do they up you word word you in america's first talking motion picture in modern and novel matter the jazz singer about a jewish man who feels most himself not as a jewish man struggling with jewish identity in pleasing his kantor father no it's when he blacks his face up and performs uh-huh miami as a negro yup in some of america's favorite stars did numbers in black face deep deep deep south judy garland performed in black face black am happy me inspire within twelve alabama manley blaze bridge all night sweeny bing crosby fred astaire both performed in black face. I ran minstrel. Oh show any out shoreline white christmas has a whole number most famous number in white christmas involves a black based itunes on my over cone but at the same time there's the beginnings of recording industry and you had black artists who had access to recording studio it out of these recordings. You have people like muddy waters now. Let me tell you the paper thing. I i just pray and inventing and perfecting blues rhythm blues ideas. He is blue's expression. The expression of out of a fully human blacks self in american popular arts it kind of confidence that most people would never have heard coming from a black person before and this is just the beginning you have the advent of a place like blue records where lots of amazing jazz was created and then released into the world people like sydney shea and then we armstrong and duke ellington <music> you've black musicians thinking about how to move not only music ford but american culture forward thinking about how these instruments mintz can do other things besides make what we think of as western european classical music taking music music to a place that nobody had ever tried to previously take it people people who just kept pushing it forward and beyond it and then you have the development of the single most important movement black black people have ever had artistically and that is the advent of motown records <music> motown is the most powerful mass-produced expression of black glamour of black self-confidence of black self reliance. Yeah it's project was to get black producers black musicians black singers to take unquote white quote western musical ideas of orchestration strings and ornes this magic moment than straight-forward harmonies so let's and you marry them to a black weekend where on saturday net greta juke joint having a good time with rhythm and blues music guitar and drum and bass aw sex basically and then you go home slightly hungover and you wake up and you go to church on sunday morning career where there's a whole other musical experience involving hand claps and different harmonic arrangements call and response in a lot of feeling a lot of gratitude. You have the combination of these three different areas of musical expression happening at the same time in just about every single motown. Oh tower records whether it's the four tops doing reach out. I'll be there for martha and the dell's doing heatwave on something a heat wave here hands slapping the tambourine like it actually is sunday morning then when everything is firing it's just the most exciting romantic sound you're ever going to hear here and at the center of it is what can only be described as a full ginned tasteful blackness so here you have in motown of force that is actively combating these ideas of black people as being inherently inferior motown is the antidote to american men shall see <music> but these the arena and this is what i was thinking about standing there in that kitchen chink chopping those vegetables. It's the thing that made me laugh was just how all that history is just very silently silently coursing through this music. It might not even be aware that it's even there. It's so thoroughly atomised into american culture. It's gonna show up up in ways that even people making the art can't quite put their finger on what you're hearing in black music. That's so appealing to so. Many people of all races across time is possibility struggle. It is strife. It is humor. It is sex it is confidence and that's ironic because this is the sound of people who for decades and centuries have been denied freedom and yet what you respond to in black music is the ultimate expression of a belief in that freedom the belief belief that the struggle is worth it. The pain begets joy and that that joe you're experiencing is not only contagious. It's necessary and urgent. An irresistible black music is american music because as americans we say we believe in freedom and that's what we tell the world and the power of black music is that it's the ultimate expression of that belief in american doc in freedom for the next few weeks.

And I love when news breaks right. Before we hit record this news broke maybe five minutes before we recorded. We'll. It's not quite news. It's just lakes. News. If you think about it, well, nothing is confirmed. It's just like this happened and were putting pictures up, right? Well, we're speculating. Garner flirty in the Boo I. What is the BOO wait? WHAT IS B? O. Paulo. Boo. Boo. That's how I'm used to hearing it as an eight syllable city, the BOO. Boo Bradley Cooper. Jennifer Garner. The new Brad, and Jen, I can't deal with the fact that it's another. It's like not that Brad? Jen, this Brad and Jen Bradley and Jen, Garner were spotted on the beach with Bradley's daughter. Can you name Bradley daughter I? Always laugh at this baby's name. Lisa do it's like that I? Know that's not because that's an French actress, but like. Shake. Cooper. Leah Sedudu Liotta San. Shake. Cooper. I thought that she was in a serious relationship but I guess they just broke up and he was in a not serious relationship and they broke up right? Well, TMZ said, they both have recently split. So this is I think breaking news that Jennifer Garner is no longer with that guy, can you name him like he was like some of generic name of all time? It was like a rich entrepreneur or something? Yes. But what was his name like like like? Doug Williams or? Even. More basic first name Beg. John. Smith the John. Miller your clothes. I honestly was so close John Miller and he was just some like rich cute entrepreneur type and I. Remember that was the only because win Ben started dating Ana. It was like Oh. We'll. Jen's great 'cause like she's like healthy. She's loved to like it's cool or whatever the last story, but the two of them was in touch in April of this year and it says, Jennifer, Garner quote hasn't seen much of boyfriend John Miller because he's self isolating with his own kids so they were on their books. Sure. But they're broken TMZ sanger broken up. I'm excited about this. If only for the like potential for Paparazzi Crossover Bradley and his kid plus Jennifer and haircuts plus Ben and Anna and cut out like we'll get there next week. But Ben on a win on a double date with Matt and his wife, I. Don't forget her name and leg that got photographed up a storm. So can you even imagine a meet up between these two couples? Also Bradley Cooper has been having quite the summer. Wasn't he just in Connecticut with Brad Pitt and Leo like hanging out casually in Connecticut? Will they're constantly in Connecticut lately I don't get it I don't got. Someone call and tell us why all these people are in Connecticut. What's in Connecticut I've been there. Is Connecticut, the New Los Angeles like understand I'll tell you what's their line disease. That's that's why I really really really the origin of line. I'm in Connecticut. Yeah lime is everywhere now, but you know it started in Connecticut. You just don't like the historical ramifications of visiting Connecticut. You know what's in Connecticut that I love that place clamp tremendous clamp beats up frank paths. Franklin Frank. Yeah. That's please Yeah. And? Mystic. Pizza. The iconic mystic, just the only things you've done in, Connecticut. In there like a few times and I know for a fact, I was there for like a few of them that these are the things that you have done, and so you like them. Yes. But it's also important to note that Jennifer and Bradley. Cooper, are old friends because of alias. So maybe it is just friends hanging out I, hang out with my old friends from we'll jobs sometimes. So I mean, that's the context at least two. They know each other. But that doesn't mean their relationship couldn't turn couldn't have turned romantic. That's what TMZ is implying, but there is context to how they know each other, which is your right through alias. What was he alias us on alias. Was On alias. That was that's how he got started. Oh, I forgot how I know be precise harbor first of all calling him Brad Cooper is fucking is a mind fuck what Brad Cooper is like he's such a chameleon. He's just like you forget what he aside from Stars Board I'm like for like blank on what he did before them a weird list of things. I can't do Victor Garber voice, but imagine me as Victor Garber saying, Bradley, you're such a chameleon. Oh Bradley. You're such a chameleon. So you're listening to, WHO's there are weekly call in if you honestly if you have information about Connecticut. Going on in Connecticut. If. You've seen these people out and about in Connecticut. Let us know because this is interesting or if you have any about the new brandon Jan.. A lot of celebrities are selling property right now. They're leaving the city's people are selling properties, I love people generally think also a lot of. older allaster celebrities are doing this. Not necessarily the young one I think they're staying put, but I do think the like again the. Brandon. Chance Jennifer Lawrence just sold her apartment in New York City and lost a lot of money on it apparently or thing i. I'm so sad for her. She's moving to Connecticut. Probably everyone their kid is they wanNA, she's like Bradley. Are you moving to Connecticut yet? They're going to have to move to Connecticut now, Jesus Christ moving to get at it. I mean we'll if all celebrities Connecticut and we won't be ABLE TO AFFORD NEW TO GET WILL NEW JERSEY? No, we'll be a New Jersey being like Connecticut. A, speaking of New Jersey. Do you know what my new phone alarm is? This is high wake up in the morning though. bobbies almost the Sopranos. You won't have to hear these references anymore hopefully, home move on three episodes. It's it's time. Don't you think aren't you done? It's when you get to the annual like I'm done I need to be so sad, every episode I'm so sad. Okay. We have a lot of comments speaking of I'm so sad. No, actually, I'm very happy about the scratch that for his goal of I'm so sad than the movie industry is so sad that they have to release his movie overstreet. is in early negotiations. So by any atoms, the woman, the Linda from. Disney. Variety. Wait let me read this doubling Netflix negotiating for the woman in the window with Amy Adams. Last Fox thousand Elizabeth Gabler project will be let go by Disney. You've been let go. This is thrilling in more ways than one. We thought the woman in the window was going to be left in the window. We thought she was going to be left for the window closing the window behind you and walking away with the thought. Did, you cut the airplane jokes from the Monday episode. No, I. Think those jokes were still in there where the woman in the windows in the balloon circling above whatever. There's still there. So finally Netflix's was like, okay, you can come down and the woman in the window landed on a net flicks helipad I guess because they are discussing with them to release it on. Netflix. which is like I, feel like every streamer is like looking around for the big blockbusters that could be and trying to get them on the platforms while they can. You know I'm. I'M GONNA quote deadline here. It says quite simply an adult themed thriller isn't a good fit for the family friendly Disney plus service because it was like we could just throw it on there and released calendars are going to be overloaded when movie theaters reopen audiences return, which is a really shady line because it saying the woman in the window has no chance compared to literally anything else. True in like if it's like a tenant Mu Lan like it's like once all these movies flood out women, the window is no one seeing woman in the window thirty, thirty dollar, Milan. It's the full title is thirty dollar. Well, we'll get there but hold on Jeff Fisher saying, are we going to get there like some other pictures that have gone from studios streamers, the Tom Hanks World? World War Two thrill the Greyhound struck from. Sony. To apple is a good example. cash-strapped studios are sitting on finished films and cash rich streamers can't get enough of them. I wouldn't call myself cash rich in terms of this because I will not be paying an extra thirty dollars to see. Mulan, on a service that we already pay for, which is fucking insane to ask that. But. But I would pay anything literally. Any price to see the woman the window in cedars like that's the difference June I. Mean I pay many thirty dollars to see that movie in theaters, but I borrow has matured from the only Campbell. I, go to the Regal. Bio. Cherry coke. But that's why I'm happy about the netflix thing because they don't even have the system to charge me money. Money to see something on top of the money there, he charged me to see the other things on there that you know what I mean like Disney plus being like it's going to be on Disney plus and you've to pay thirty dollars to see Milan is fucking psycho. I kinda think that won't happen. It's too much. I, think it's GonNa Happen. They said it's going to happen. That's crazy. anyways were so excited about the woman in the window and she's finally going to get out of the window. Maybe I should just as an experience, watch the woman the window through my own window, and then like blog about it slash talk about on the podcast. If Netflix, asked me to pay thirty dollars for window. So they could send me in the mail that I could hold in front of my face. While watching women in the window, I would pay thirty dollars for that. Even the itself is free, we should both make cardboard cutouts of windows and like take photos of our faces on them and start like a Hashtag movement. That's like women in the window like release women in the window women the went, you know what I mean like something like that. That'd be fun or just women in the window in the window. I. Oh. I love this call I. Love this call. Hi Bobby, longtime longtime, longtime Dur An student midwife here calling about the Bella twins pregnancies My nonscientific opinion on their inductions is that. They both were induced on the same day, but an induction sometimes can take three hours or it can take. Thirty six hours. So my suspicion is that. They induced on the same day and then. One baby was born. I, and the other baby took sweet time. Coming side Crimes crunch good for him while the world will wobble wobble I. Love This theory. This is icon because it's one hundred percent true this this this hold water. This is it. We've got multiple midwives calling us which I am obsessed with and they were like as a midwife, I, know how induction works and my suspicion is that because these two are already reality stars so by. By definition, they are thirsty for attention once they are at term, they can both induce on the same day they multiple midwife suspect. This eat is truly incredible that these two desperately tried to have their babies on the same day for press and Clinton, and it didn't happen for them like one baby was like I will not. I will not sign onto this from birth. And was born a day later. I. Feel like we can expect more from the baby that chose to stay put. Yeah. That baby. That's like the chosen baby. WHO's which baby? Is it? I. Don't even know which one. Ethically shaky sort of experiment where we just followed the Bella twin children and see what's up. I mean that baby already has broken free from the prescribed life, his reality. TV Mom tried to put him in the boss and speculating here. But let's be on people. Duh. Duh. Next call. You guys please stop saying hist- with masks. What what, what are you talking about? What does this? I'm not going to go look at these pictures. What are you talking about kissed masks? Crunch crunch. Wow. This caller is really upset because we were talking about people who kissed with masks on. In. The last episode and I honestly don't even remember which celebrities were kissing masks on but. I was thinking when this call came in because this person is clearly upset. Wow. How are they avoiding? I'm inundated with every day because I see celebrities Kissing Amazon everywhere I turn on the Internet. So I don't know what Internet urine, but my Internet is ninety percent celebrities kissing with masks on. So I did a little digging term. I myself. How often this happens and it's even more often than I expected Lindsey, would you like me to read the assortment of Mass Kissing that I've seen? Little stunt to fund stunt Cutie stint. Exactly. I. Promise. Always take care of you. Call and Brooklyn.

The dog is Sir Winston West Gate, a West highland white terrier and property mascot for the West Gate Hotel in. That is. Now, and then there is Ben. Affleck gives girlfriend on arms a kiss while they both wear face masks before he wraps his arms around her during a walk in, say that second last one kind of made me agree with the caller that this is just ridiculous.

The ultimate chicken site x factor, you say. Twenty sixteen. What's the connection? Did you watch the video that I sent yesterday? The healthy did I don't think I. Did I think I was doing something else? You were doing something else? So I was like, I, don't understand what this call is, but it sounded you know when you're listening to a call and you're like, this could be nothing. But like there was something in this callers voice that made me think I have to look this up like I have to, and so I found this five and a half minute long video call number five, Brittania. In the chicken fight x-factor UK, top ten moments like the top ten moments ever onyx actor UK I've never heard of this. and. So I'm not gonNA play the whole clip, but essentially, you know there's no culture as in your there Simon Cowl, there's Sharon Osborne, and that other one you know the white haired one, the other judge has x-factor UK. And this guy walks sent, it says, Britain Abio. The suggestion is that Brad and Tobbaco were suppose to be auditioning at the same time. Okay. But they're alone and oh, Taba walks in and he is wearing like candy striped pants and he looks like a nutcracker like see. sexiness Nutcracker Yeah Candy Striper Candy Striper, and he's clearly upset, and so he sings a song and it's like he's fine and they're like. They're being very nice to him. weirdly. So if something is just up and they're saying, you know what's going on you you, you see your heart is in this. This isn't the song was written down that you were going to sing like what's happening and he says well to be honest with you, and then he says this. I. With my friend. Bradley. And we had a massive argument. Chicken. SCHOO- Broccoli you said, it was about chicken. Cooked me some Chikan. I've twenty. gave me is so pink. All know look very sick. Don't found. Manila.

Being nice to have. Let's bring Bradley and let Bradley his side of the story and he says. Give him under-cooked chicken. No made chicken that didn't leave long enough because I was hungry, but then I. Like it could have said, thanks though still. On Amazon to cook, but I still try. But you just got. Very, upset at the end of this thing, they get them back together as friends because they both have to sing songs that they weren't prepared for because they were. GonNa, sing a song together writer. Sweet. But of course, they don't win. Anyway. vio and the chicken just. So thank you for providing us with another moment, Enga- Salmonella poisoning. Hi, Lindsay, and body I just listened to. But who's there s owed and I think originally sleazy saying. Kenny loggins has has about one song for footloose and nobody knows what it is. I love Kenny loggins like UN. Ironically, it's not like a YEP ROC. Joke for me but he is like on every soundtrack from the nineteen eighties caddyshack. Excellent Song. Too. I also love that I'm nobody's fool. what, how, how, done, and dangerous zone? That's the big one. I would. Probably more people know that song footloose just because. I don't know, and there's also another thing on the talk on soundtrack, but like my. coworker pages for me. I was like Oh. Yeah. That is from. But. It's like Hannie and you halfway a beautiful song. From, movie over the top which I've never seen over the top, I, believe it's an arm wrestling movie starring Oscar Stallone a movie about. Arm Wrestling Competition, but the song is beautiful I really like it So I love Kenny loggins. I interact with that. Kenny's the most more than those other Kennedys I totally forgot about ten Chesney, he's a who for me. Yeah. So can you loggins love? Thank you. Crush crunch from all of the calls, the many many calls you received about Kenny loggins and how much straight people love Kenny loggins. I. AM willing to adjust my Kenny rankings to put Kenny loggins and Kenny Chesney on the same level like side by side almost soon, Rogers. loggins Chet, loggins Chesney, and then what's the last one g? No. For me. G. is higher than and also I, fucked up because I said gee had a lonely island being he didn't. That's Michael. Bolton Mi- mixed up Michael Bolton and Kenny G., which I would say as an arguably okay. Mix Up like that makes little sense to do that. But I do still think that Kenny G. IS Logging, Chesney. But I do think that loggins Chesney. Are would be side by side via the amount of calls we got being like. Oh. Don't you know the top gun soundtrack and it's like bitch like no. Get Out of the eighties like this is he's the most eighties artist, right? Danger Zone, I, don't think it really affects. The ranking. Fundamentally. But. We could have mentioned morphing songs, but we could always could've mentioned more about anyone we talk about. But I just I'm willing to inch him up alongside Chesney I. agree that Chesney in Loggins are probably on the same. Step of the Kenny Ladder, the Kenny, who them ladder. Hey guys I'm calling in about the Kenny discussion So the most. Demi Kenny in the world is absolutely Kenny G. because. Okay. So I'm a journalist I've been living in China for like the past six years. In China whenever like a building or public business is going to close. They start playing going home by Kenny G. Like it. It's just kind of like A. Nationwide accepted like signal that. That like the mall is closing or like. A shroud disclosing or whatever they start playing that and not just in like Beijing Shanghai international places. But like truly everywhere in China. So when you factor in the Fact that like? There's a billion people there then like. The other tiny? Just don't stand a chance. I'll give you an example like the gym I used to work out it and Beijing. The close at ten every night. But at nine thirty, they would circling US going home on. For the full half hour until ten. So as far as I was concerned that basically close at nine, thirty, but Yeah. Just wanted to clarify that crunched. I don't think I know that's I don't think I can. Hear it. You know it. It's it's very beautiful. I. Don't know that at all.

I missed it completely, this is the closing time of China, although closing time is not really even use the way. This is us. It's just you know theoretically used that way. You know this near times headline is funny. China says goodbye in the key of, G Kenny G. Anything that's amazing okay. That's cool. Does that BUMP KENNY UP I? Don't know everyone loves Kenny.

Your girlfriend cheating on you because this is like probably the first time she's like been able to comfortably be out of the closet now that You know she's. Not Involved in pen pals you anymore I. Forgotten that she was on this show I watched the entire aftermath. That's was a great series well, like truly and I watched the entire thing I totally forgot about her being on it. This isn't the second season I didn't watch the second season so I never saw this but I did watch the entire episode this morning. And it was really good I. Forgot how I just forgot how funny it is. We joked about this at the time. But like the scientology aftermath show remedy is, yes, it's great. It's harrowing. It's depressing. It's very well done. But like Lear remmy is the most photogenic. Worked on this our whole life. Yes. I, feel like if you were some sort of a to talk about body language experts again, like the way she sits the way her facial expressions change subtly like they're not distracting everything about it is so fine. Think of how many hours Lee Rumney has to sit listening to J. Lo just. He's perfected Hor listening, and it is funny because you think Romney and actually she's a talker. She's all. She's all. Talker, right. Long Island or she's just a really fucking good actress because Oh Brooklyn. Brooklyn. Always listening Oh Brooklyn. Okay Brooklyn. She's a Brooklyn apartment talker. Shoe. And also the again, a very serious topic. Extremely good journalism. Extremely good production. But the the very odd couple coupling of the scientology. British guy, an Leah Rumney. Always cracks me up. You know because he's like, yes, don't on. She's like, yeah. Well, you know and it's so it might every. What was the show where she was in where she played the wife? He's Australian by the way of Queens operas whatever like. Because wins. Yes. There's like a posh accent, and then there's kind of like a Leo Rumney moments just very late king of Queens, coming back to you, you know. Yes. Dick. There's an iconic king of Queens episode where she gets sick and like thinks she's going blind. Episode. I don't know like growing up. What the finger family do. We ate dinner together and we watch king of Queens like. CSI Okay back to meet me watching CSI with family. My mom just going. This is disgusting, but like every Thursday night, every single Thursday night, we'd watch together in high school. The just be like Oh. This is gross like, why are we doing this? Okay. So. He goes on the show and it's the story is actually I. I'll put I'll. Send. But it's really sad and if you watch the show, you know that there are shades of this story but many stories specifically, if you haven't, if you don't know anything about scientology, you're like, Oh, this is straight up a call because everything they did to them and her family was and child abuse. But like taking advantage of this of her mom who's clearly like unwell and manipulating her to leave her family because it's like Mimi was like my brother was in college, my brother was at the University of Georgia. So he was out of the. The House, my sister was living alone like my sister had an apartment, she was grown. I was like the young one, I was nine, and so her mom falls into scientology moved from Georgia to clearwater. They moved to that iconic blue building, which I didn't realize used to be a hospital and was like rundown and she was like rats and cockroaches, the entire building it's disgusting. So she lives there for four years than they want her to her mom gets really into it, and then at some point, they asked her to sign this billion your contract. She's thirteen dedication and she does your on a sign and they're like, okay, bye-bye. Kick her out as she's homeless at. Thirteen. At that point went on declined. They said, well, then you have to leave. And you're. Just like that. A new mother was there with you. She was and what was your mother doing during this time? She was out of here. It's. Not there, and they gave me a deadline which was seven pm the that that same day same day. They didn't give me one red cent, not even dollar fifty to take the bus or blanket here goes people in this park bench. Nothing, and then they sent people up to escort me out of the building thirteen year old, the the church claims. Oh, well, no, she wasn't homeless. We made sure she had an adult and she's like, no, they didn't. She had to like find someone at school. She was doing to a scientology school which kills me. So she's like even though you're out, you're still stuck on this web. Web. Sort of unspoken, but she's like very nice parents. Let her move in with them of one of her friends, and so that's kind of Bush's with for a few years. But it's still sort of suggested because she's at a scientology school to those parents are scientologists. She is just not participating in which you think would be not allowed because she would be considered somebody who's suppressing whatever. But maybe that doesn't really count. If you're a child, I'm not sure and then she moves out comes an adult moves into her own apartment and the MOM comes over. She's like we have. We actually have a good night. We drink wine, we have dinner, we talk talk talk talk, and then the mom leaves his very upset and goes back to scientology whatever. Then, Mimi gives a little more details and she finds out that the mom was upset that she was living this like sinful lifestyle and meaning reveals that she had taken and a friend who was on hard times and had a roommate, and this friend was a lesbian and the mom was like I can't believe like I don't approve of your lifestyle insinuating that Mimi herself is gay and we need doesn't Doesn't say that in this interview because again, this interview is released in two thousand seventeen, maybe filled in two, thousand, sixteen unclear, but it was releasing twenty seven. So they're like suggestions that Mimi was already dating women before she publicly dated women and that there's more to her having trouble coming out. Then we originally realized from Levin hip-hop like the Scientology Angle has a lot to do with this May. More sense with our story for shore. So it's a you know last week, we were complaining about like getting this type of Gaul over and over again like it just won't stop. The thing about podcasts is that, yeah. A lot of people listen day of people listen a lot later and so that leads to US getting. Calls like this on August four, th twenty, twenty, eight eleven pm at night. uh-huh. Just. Cast to call and tell you about my favorite who we ice cream that doesn't know which is most tracks. No. No we'll and I'm sorry, I used seem nice.

Who is Holly Robinson Peak? Crunch crunch. Oh, we're on questions now where we've gone past comments were on questions who raw holly Robinson Peete. I was. I was not expecting this call in your of our Lord Twenty. Twenty. What is she up usually when somebody calls and says, who is someone I can in my mind? I'm like, oh. They did this or others like news thing or oh, they just got cast and this or Oh this movie just came out I must say have no fucking clue why this person wants to know who Holly Robinson pitas first of all holly. Robinson beater who were them. I definitely knew she was I always her who nine of them. Sure but like definitely a, who now I would say, yeah, I, know you and I mean I watched. Hang with Mr Cooper to I would say she is a WHO now. I would still Colorado. So Holly Urban beat most iconic for me because she was the star of Hangup. Mr Cooper who was my thing music. Batch. Most well known for people older than we are because she was starved twenty one jump street. The original show twenty one jump street. But she's also one of the people who's been on a million television shows since then and she's also a hallmark movie queen. You know how? Vivica Fox got the bad teacher. What was it the wrong? The wrong teacher, the wrong something. Candice Candice, remember, it has like the mysteries What does she have? Holly, Robinson Pete's our morning. Show mystery plays a woman named Billy blessing years. She's been in. A sneak peek at morning show mysteries death by design. Morning Show. A murder in mind. Morning Show mystery mortal mishaps, welcome to morning show mystery murder on the menu, having that many hallmark movies, and that's not even all the ones she's done. She's done other ones like Christmas, an evergreen and a family, Christmas gift. That's like very lucrative. I would say. She was Holly Robinson back in the day when she first started. Then she married a famous quarterback named Rodney Peete and there's last name they're still married. Yeah. So when I was trying to figure out why this person called Holly Robinson Peete I was doing a little digging and I found out that she also started in a reality show that was on own. And it was a reality show about her family and it was called for Pete's sake, and it ran two seasons on for Pete's sake chronicle labor. Rodney and therefore kids one of whom is there name Ryan and their mom deloris. Then that got canceled after two seasons. This is what is iconic about this for Pete's sake, which is great was canceled. Then they moved the reality, show a hallmark channel where she has an existing relationship, right? Because she's in those murder mystery movies, and then the show was renamed to meet the Pete's which I feel like is counterintuitive because you would think meet the pizza. It'd be the first one, and then it would be for Pete's sake be the second one. Well, just funny because they couldn't use that one again like. For Pete's sake was perfect and then they were like, Oprah was like you're not getting this name. We don't we don't get to use this again I guess we'll do just meet the pizza does rhyme but is not as good as pizza not as good as for Pete's sake it is the same concept because it is still about just the family what's with them and obviously they already have existing fans is it that show also ran for two seasons before getting canceled but I guess Ryan became sort of a little bit famous was the the young, the young daughter Ryan this summer during the very deprived months with the end of June came out as gay on Instagram That got a decent a decent amount of headlines on like a huge amount headlines but. So. It's like the funny thing about this. This was hallmarks I reality show and I think they gave it to her because she was an in house hallmark player almost MC. She'd already done four or five movies for hallmark, and she was probably like let's reboot my reality show here, and there were like we'll try unscripted share and this was their first unscripted reality TV show, which is kind of a big deal. I would say, and it lasted two seasons The other thing that holly gets headlines for apart from her acting now is because Ryan the Lesbian? Has a twin brother named RJ. Rj has autism and so holly as does a lot of lake celebrity. Spokesperson work like she'll go on Morning Joe, go on talk shows and she talks but autism like awareness stuff. but the most interesting about Holly Repeat Speech. So I kind of knew all of this stuff holly Robinson beat nepotism. I. Didn't know she's nepotism beneficiary inland is one of the most interesting ways that we've talked about ever. What is that? Her Dad was one of the original stars hosts of Sesame Street now way? Yes, Matt Matt Robinson who played Gordon. Robinson on sesame street like the OG sesame street was like on the on the stoops even voiced them up at. That was a short-lived market named Roosevelt Franklin that was like even released an album, but he was like a famous actor in the seventies and eighties. That's so funny and it was Robbins beat. Biz The family. Biz. Yeah. What is your? When you think of Sesame Street? What is the? What is the first one that comes to might? Honestly what not a classic but ELMO's world, you know that song that kids love now elmo's. World the the ELMO's world. Yeah. It's I told you. It's not the classic, but like I know there's more classic Sesame Street songs, you're trying to get me to say one that he sang, but I'm not going to the one that comes to mind my mind is Walk. Doesn't ring a bell for you know, sorry, we did. He Sing it. Is that what you're playing it or you're just playing me because you're just a tape that had that's on, and that was probably listen to a lot. I was pigs and they sing I got a new way to walk. Okay. I was thinking of is elmo's song, and it's the theme song. It's almost theme song. La La Elmo's song. That's like the new generation of elmo lovers song. That's what sticks in my head. Last thing about Holly Robinson beat even though we took that sesame street diversion was she was one of the original host of the talk and she got fired after one season. She was like an inaugural host up the. Why did she do? You know why? She got us? I have step in here? The rumors are it was early on the talks, they were still trying to figure stuff out. Also, talk shows such tumultuous place in Lake Such a volume. Who? Wants to fucking work for a talk show like every time we talk about talk shows. I'm like who would want to do this for a living sucks. Julie. Chen Moon does had it out for her and fired her and byerly remedy after the first season? Well Leah, hot topic, but what they're fired the same time they were fired at the same time. So they just like didn't show up the first season and at the time that like contemporaneous reporting about the show is like all rumors about how much of a monster Julie Chen men basis? And this is before this ten years before the the the less moon vest like accusations before she was truly a monster Leah Romney icon. Queen Legends said on twitter. She said Sharon Sharon Osborne thought that me and holly were quote ghetto. And we're not funny awkward and didn't know ourselves Sharon said that she asked for us to be fired. I didn't claim that she admitted this on Howard Stern. She claimed she and Pete were in the dark about their firings until Osborne made the Radio Confession, we didn't know why we were. Let go an osborne went on twitter and said in response to these comments. Comments that I had are fired from the talk. Let me just go on the record and absolutely nothing to do with it and I have no idea why she continues to take to twitter spread this false gossip. Oh my there was drama and Holly was like I'm not even commenting on this. No comments. No tweets. I'm smart by you can't turn Leah Remedy off. Please people trying to turn Lee remedy offer decades. She does not shut off. She's a perpetual motion. Machine. Scientists are studying Lee remedy because they like she has key infinite energy. And she's like I'm always listening actively. But I. Love this last quote that I saw from like two thousand six or whenever the talk was premiere, frozen nine or something. One of the sources who who's complaining about how toxic it is to work on season one and two of the talk says quote, it's the. Less Moon Veg show starring his annoying wife. Who is a Leyla George Lila? George. WHO IS SEAN PENN's new way. Thank you the inside Sean Penn got married to his girlfriend. She's now his wife Layla. George I have to say I skimmed over her because I thought that I already like looked her up and did this and she wasn't interesting or something I. Guess I thought. I don't I don't know what I thought. But I'm so glad that you called about this girl. Normally, I don't think we call. I don't even want to Touch Sean Penn.. Nine and a half. So, Leyla George is an act tour, but she's also Vincent enough daughter. Well, that's I mean not to take away her acting career Israel's person. Vincent enough rose? Daughter? And years a fun fact Vincent in. Austria. Was Sixty one years. Old Sean. Penn is fifty nine years old. Those dudes are three years apart in eight to. It's a fun fact for you too. H. So that's fun right. I'd only talking about age much, but it's worth noting that your new husband is basically your Dad's age. There was a time I'm sure when Vincent and offer you and Sean Penn could conceivably be in the running for the same movies lake. Now, they're different, but like throwback to nineteen, ninety two and me like gruff, all white guys like I don't know. Also, funny that Vincent. Inoperable has this kind of like rep is being this like tough guy in it's like. Are you going to beat the shit out of Sean Pat? Like is like, how is this? Okay? I mean they've been dating for a long time, these two, thousand, four years. Yeah I'm sure I'm sure Vincent's used to this Sean Penn in his life, but like kind of like oh you know what I mean. The last thing of note that Leyla George was in his that she start in the two thousand, sixteen remake of mother. May I sleep with danger that was on lifetime, which was when James Franco was like doing all of these different? He was like in a soap opera, he was doing lifetime movies. He like wanted to Redo this movie with the original actors which included Tori spelling. So he was in this and Leah played the role that I think Torii played when the film was first on the ninety film. No one cared no one. Watched it. No one cared because. The the big misread with that whole thing was that mother may I sleep with danger was connick for its name people remember the name people didn't necessarily remember the content and so the conflation of those two things like made it. So like okay. So James Franco's in a bad lifetime movie. If you're not a person who already watches bad lifetime, you're not just going to suddenly start watching. Watching that lifetime movies that has to already be thing that was what was so weird. What was like? They thought they were like or James Franco in like lifetime or like we're going to subvert it, and that's why people watch those because it'll be like a and it's like, no, it just going to be the people who wanNA. Watch lifetime movies. Watch. Lifetime movies, you're not going. To like Kristen Wigan lifetime movie and that it was, but I don't i. don't WanNa. Watch. These bad. I don't WanNa, do that. I know even if I liked kristen wiig. Okay Sean. Penn is sixty, not fifty nine. So they're only one year apart. Amazing, and there's more this I real. This is weird. So her mom is this actress named Greta Scotch Lia when I looked demography. The only thing that I really recognize her from was she's At the Gwyneth. Paltrow. She is. Who does she? She's Emma's governess. and. So. That's the only thing that I look I'm looking from. Agassi. She's like a working actress up until. She. Has BAFTA. She has emmys. She has she kind of has all of it. Especially, the international awards she's like done a ton of theater. She's like out here. You know because Italian? Yes. She's an Italian woman as an Italian woman as an Italian woman. She's also married to her cousin. Okay. So that is what got me stopped me dead in my tracks. I was reading her wikipedia and a half to say, I gasped a little because it's the way that it's written. Now. It's so straightforward. It just says whereas personal life Scott. She wasn't relationship with New Zealand musician Tim Finn From Nineteen, eighty, three to nineteen nine. She had a relationship with American. American actor Vincent off Rio with whom she has a daughter actress Leila Jordan. Scottie. Is An Italian citizen by birth. She applied for British citizenship after turning eighteen, but was refused again on appeal, she is a dual citizen of Italy in Australia Scotch. E is married to her first cousin Carlo Manta. Gods. They have a son born in one, thousand, nine, eight. I was like Whoa. Like clicks on the many links that are like it was a stand allows you discovered it was It was a huge scandal and they kept secret her cousin, and then the she went to the mail online and did an interview or something. would she was pregnant and she said she had to like say everything about who the baby's father was and who she was and she said my dad Luca was deeply offended and quite devastated. He was very angry. Angry. Several uncles were equally outspoken and combination declaring the relationship with a Manton, Gaza, unacceptable and her daughter Layla who was five at the time was like this is terrible. Even though she was five years old I, guess she had cheese Shia weighed in I mean not that does make sense what whatever you. It's like they didn't know each other the cousins. Only met a few times I don't like talking. This is just like she's married to her cousin. She's married to her cousin. She's married to cousin I don't know what else there is to say, first cousin, she's my door first cousin. CAPILLARY posted a photo. Her Stephen Colletti. This is what we deserve and twenty. Stephen Colletti doesn't matter anymore who cares. Stephen Twins going Steve. Steve, what are you? Defense. Fifteen minutes trying to sleep with all. I can hear the ECHO, the hills, Laguna beach references. This is so specific. This is such. A small window of millennial culture that I'm pretty sure does not leak out anywhere else that the fact that Kristin Cavalry posted a photo with Stephen. There's like a two or three year Max Age range where you cared about these people and if you were not, if you could not have theoretically maybe. So that makes four years. If you could not have theoretically gone to high school with these people, you don't give a shit. But if you could have gone to high school with these people, they are your classmates. That's. It's kind of like giving a shit about people you look at in the yearbook. You're like looking for your yearbook and you're like Oh them like they like join the army, do they get married? They get divorced or whatever? That's me. That's me seeing a photo of Kristen cavalieri stand sitting on his lap. Yeah. Is that not? Because, they're not in masks. It's unclear where they are in the frontal. Jay Cutler deleted everything on his instagram quote told Kristen. Was Down in Laguna Visit Stephen. Alex Merrill. Another star of L. be the real Orange County. Laguna Beach, and that's all there is to it. Okay. fucking TMZ. I'm sure and then the other will the other reason why this is at all relevant or maybe anything at all is because she recently filed for divorce. Her show was cancelled. She was in the news for that as you know, and I guess around the same time, she went to visit him Jay Cutler deleted his instagram. So people are like page six wrote about this this morning, and they have a source who says that after that photo went up of Kristen. It's and Steven and everyone was like on Jay on all of his social media and so he got annoyed and then just. At all because he was sick of like the fan armies coming after him, that's honestly kind of annoying. That's annoying Stephen. But it's like Steven is literally Stephen as no one. I know it's true like who cares he wanted to be an actor for a while and then he was in some Slobodan? Well, he was on one tree hill. I didn't watch one, but he was on one tree hill. He doesn't. He doesn't matter and. But. The thing is I still like Kristin. Kristin is the problem. Yeah. No. Well, she's a had to say kristen is likable because she's a huge bitch and you can tell that that's her real life personality, which was always why people liked her because she was like this compelling bitch. I think she would appreciate being called a bitch I would. I. Want nothing more than to be friends with Kristen and for her to call me, fucking. Or worse on the phone like. Or worse or worse. Or worse or whereas Mitch being on like a zoom zoom call with Kristin Cavalieri, and she just gets mad and leaves. Everyone's like just leave. Did you just sign off Kristen definitely signs off from zooms without saying goodbye? She doesn't even sign onto the zoom. She's like I don't fucking zoom. Just leave. You wiped producer J. Challenges. Anyway. Let. Me Pop performed. By as myself who was a white person and I I I said, no. No, I. Don't know who that is, and then I googled him and I was like, oh, I do know who he is because he plays a role in one of my bobby can attest favorite movie sequels. Now, you seeing me to that is a sequel tonight. The original, and we are going to get an icy me three or now you three me, but we don't know when that is. Save, Experience I. I did not know who he was by name, and then I looked him up and I was like, Oh, right? That Guy Nice into an oriental orange and the Green Hornet, which is a nightmare movie. But Jay Chow please be small roles in these American films. But actually in China Taiwanese, he is extraordinarily famous. He literally is the quarterback triple threatening the king of Mando Pop. He has his own genre essentially that he is the king of and I was listening to the and it's really fun. He's also has fashion brand and he's but the thing I love him, he's really horny for magic like he has a Netflix show in which he does magic tricks in up like around the world like He. Adjective. That's why he was in now. You see me too because it's a passion project, he just loves magic. Yes. Like wow. What are your thoughts on magic? Oh, I have thoughts. I'm talking like Vegas magic like big bombastic magician magic. Oh, well. Okay. So i. saw the Criss Angel Broadway show. I. Don't think many people can decide. Australia? Yeah. Yeah. It was incredibly bad. But there's also something so fun about it. I've also been to the Magic Castle in La, which is famously that building that houses a bunch of old magicians and people get invited to go and you kind of walk around and there's all these guys doing cards and I think, I think magic is fun. I like it. I, like cards I, like it, but I think the culture around magic is is inherently brody and like will end like is going to be is very hard to separate that from being like very briefly. Don't you think, but I do love see me. So I, don't know. Maybe I've mixed feelings about magic. How do you feel about magic I? Think? Think the only way. I would enjoy magic is if I went to that sort of Caesar's palace magic Broadway Magic. I, think like as a spectacle because it because it's just so obviously fake I like magic whenever it's not a magician pretending that it's real like I don't like David Blaine Magic I. Don't like we to what do you? What magic do you like? The growing up. Like the David Copperfield Magic when it's on TV and they're like trying to make you think that it is real like they're trying to be serious about it, I'm like shut the fuck up, but whenever it is the sort of ostentatious over the top, let's do this in front of a big audience magic like if you're like there, it's funny. It's it's it's easier to fall into what's wild is that we don't actually have in the eighties. Eighties and nineties. We had these big magicians who would do these stunts on TV more in public. We don't really have that anymore. Even we had David Blaine, he would like at least China himself to a box and hangover times where we don't have surround himself days like we don't remember Copperfield was like I'm GonNa, move the empire state building and then he would like do it and it was like some camera number it was like. You know like, no, he he He moved lady. Liberty? Liberty because I remember. There was a great podcasts. I. Don't remember, but it's about how he faked. It's totally fit. You know. Obviously, he was like a whole thing. But the way that he did it is very interesting and whenever you find out the way that they do the magic tricks always amazing. which is why I loved the series where it was like magic revealed by that like masked guy when he was telling you tricks those. But we don't. But I'm just saying we don't have a celebrity magician right now. who does these bombastic televised stunts? Right? Maybe, we need to really get into it. Like you need an entertainer like I I I, prefer it when it's entertainment when it's not when you're supposed to be cool wall where it's not so serious. Yeah, I think there's a there's a GAL distinction. You like the spectacle on the show of it. All nonsense early like the the idea of like magic tricks like hide this card or like you know, and I feel in between, there's a coin in my ear, like you're not into that and I feel like I'd almost it's sort of like this is a weird. Comparison, but it's almost sort of like baseball where it's also like I need to be there I don't ever WanNa Watch baseball on TV, but if I'm at a baseball game, I'm like this is really fun. I have a good time. You're in front of some old guy and he was doing cartridge, you would love it because. And it is like scale you're watching. Watch skill sleight of hand, and you're like impressed by knowing, how did you now? But like? You. See Me To is good magic because it's just CGI cards going up and down people's clothes for ten minutes. You. I've already talked about my issue with now. You see me and Nice two, and the my main issue is that you're never quite clear whether it's actual magic or magic like it's it is there are things that happened in the show that are truly just like they float in bubbles. They float, they are in bubbles and they float in bubbles. Bubbles and you're like, that is straight up CG magic. That is not that is not practical thing about the now you see me series. Now you series, what is the thing about the thing about the now you series is that it has both ways and I think successfully. Because in the first one, they are con artists are fake magicians. They are tricksters who find out that magic is also real. So they can do, they can do, they can do what? They can do this magic thinking to the street magic that is sleight of hand, but they can also take control. Of True. Magic. So it's it's a combination of you need to be an expert in the sleight of hand to like truly master the like. Let's float and bubbles magic. I WanNa think that like it's all. It's not real magic none of it's actually real magic, but you just don't know the answers to every single trick that they do. I think it's supposed to be like, but the thing is sometimes they solve tricks and sometimes they don't, and that's what's confusing because you're either you solve all the tricks for. For me or you don't or you, or you say this is that's the confusing part. Can we go back? We need to go back to Jay Chow because Jerry gotten so far from him. But basically, he is like a multi hyphen it to the extreme in China, and he is one of the most successful entertainers for his music and with literally everything sold like thirty million albums or something crazy like that says, his says his wikipedia. He's married to another actress who was in the movie skyscraper on. But. It was wildly entertaining Joe name adequately. She's really good in skyscraper and I'm an as someone who saw skyscraper. She goes I don't remember what paper she fights Selma Blair like she has. She's a bill in. Different, hair and skyscrapers and balanced. We were looking to cash. Shia, this race cold lady assassin. I was watching bunch of audition tapes and. His, tape and she just had a baby in her husband was pushing her wheelchair in the hospital and she held out to was firing them and saying all the lines and I just was whoever this is I got to have her in that movie or thought choose perfect for this role in her audition tape. For Skyscraper, Jay. Chow is pushing her. She just had a baby and Jay pushing her in a wheelchair and she's holding two guns and like pretending to fire them. Like what skyscraper I didn't love looked a lot of skyscraper, but I was like God skyscraper should have been so much better than what it was. Don't you think skyscraper was like the closest we've come to having the spirit of the Bruce Willis films the. Die Hard films better than San. Andreas? It's better than San, Andreas, it had a very simple premise. It was a very international movie which I loved about it it. It felt like a movie that it could take place anywhere and yet it took place in like a skyscraper in I think Hong Kong like it felt very vintage an eighties way that I liked or an early nineties way that I like. But you're right. It wasn't a perfect. It wasn't perfect. But they gave candles in good fighting scenes. They did and I got to be a hint Roman which we love. I? Know. She was great. But yeah, I mean I don't think I think most white people would not know who jay chow is gotta say American White People. I don't know him by name because I don't think it's his biggest America movie was the Green Hornet and that movie was even though it made money internationally. One of the reasons probably the Green Hornet was as successful as it was was because of him. You know like with has released overseas. They see it because of Jay Shell when it's released in America they. Throw Kim right there. Thoughtful when they cast people who are very very famous abroad. You know and I think that's how you could maybe have a crossover, but you know td for him, and now let's play a game of who or them. Bobby. As you know I'm a very undisciplined person.

Always go to my billy dot com slash who, that's my b. i. l.. L. I., E. DOT COM slash who Halabi Bobby I'm calling because of Meena Dobrev Tibia Yogurt. Spun on Instagram For the question, do you think a-? Jamie Lee Curtis? Knows who needed to read it is I she passes on the activities thinking by Nina Dobrev is the new face. She's The new Gut of activity yogurt. Her Gut is the gut move over Jamie. Lee. Gut In town, I've always said Nina Dobrev has the most enviable gut in Hollywood. Get so grows like the joker microbiome microbiome is co waking honey when I look at Nina, Dobrev microbiome. Robust collection of bacteria. As you had a more diverse as diverse gut microbiome as a Nina. Dobrev, does you think they sat down in like I? See them sitting down in a conference room like Tibia? Whatever agency they hired in there like let's throw some names on the board who out there seems like they have a robust microbiome and then we start listing names. It's like she looks like she is regular. This woman looks like she's regular activity of this you. They didn't headline that you were telling me about activity recruits, Nina, Dobrev, and daybreak are for virtual dance party, and it talks about this like really funny press release about Nina Dobrev owner they. Publish the press release has. Conic like they. They didn't even like say. To. I didn't need to it's, hilarious. Some things don't require editorializing like you just raise the fact that Gobert is doing activities in the middle of a quarantine. You're like I'm laughing. I'm laughing. It's like the the like the Smiley face I am laughing I'm laughing. Curtis. Okay. It was the first comment annot. They didn't use your name where their avatars to gay porn stars fucking. But cropped. So you don't see them fucking, but they're cleaning fucking and the communist digestive queen like that is that is that is the perfection of owner they did. That is that it's called right there. That's culture So wait back to the question at hand does Jamie. Lee Lee Curtis who Nina is I would say, she definitely knows the young person who took her or yogurt job. That seems obvious. You would know who she was. She took the job. Maybe I think, maybe the caller was wondering like does even though yes, she's sort of taking her job. She's taking the the baton so to speak, but the baton is just like a gigantic tube of probiotic yogurt. Taking the baton does Jamie Lee Curtis Really Care? I would say Jamie Lee Curtis carriers I would say that Jamie, Lee Curtis follows things to appoint Y- will I will say that Jamie Lee Curtis does work with a lot of young actors because she still has actively in a lot of movies like Kahane Wean stuff with all with John, silliest have young people knives out. So I would say that unlike many unlike some other older star who really doesn't give a fuck Jamie Lee, is out here working with the likes of you know young young literally young people. People in film. So I know it's hard to say that she wouldn't at least knows she was or at least have an idea. Does Sir Ian McCowan No to in summer holder is. Speaking of. I love that we have these back Dobrev. Does Ian mckellen Know Soma Helder is I would say one, hundred percent. No, that's neat. That kind of feels like, no. I. Would say maybe leaning on now. I would say, no, why would you say maybe because I, would say maybe Sir Ian mckellen saw. Holder wants and like. I said something like Oh, Hubba Hubba, young gentleman or something like that. But then like beyond that. The has. Yeah I just like I. Think. No, I don't see the connection I think Ian mckellen does not care about shows on the CW or be you know ongoing life of Ian Som-, halder. The only reason that he might is because he's another famous Ian and sometimes I think like if you're a famous Ian you know other are you might. Not mckellen I would argue is probably one of the horny people like enacting So definitely Horny, you're right. So maybe he's just out here knowing what other men looked like, 'cause you oranje. But I. Yeah. I'M GONNA say, no, and also em mckellen. Definitely them in summer holders. You who were them, one, two, three? WHO IF NOT? Because of knowing who he is because he has such who behavior is unitil? Yeah. Okay. Shameless real name is. Shannon Bruce. West? Garth snaith French. This isn't really a who them question, but I felt like where else is the supposed to go? Shannon Bruce West Garth snaith I cannot believe Shane West real name is all those names. It gets worse as you go Shannon Bruce. What is it? Shannon Bruce Shannon Bruce West garth. Wet scart West Shannon Bruce West garth's. snaith? snaith. So, Shane West named could have been any combination of all of those things like it could have been Bruce West. Bruce West or Bruce Garth or something or bruce earn snaith or Shannon, could have been Ron Bruce. Shane Ron okay. Those are all bad I. Guess he chose the best one. Okay. So here's the question Yeah Shannon Bruce West, garth snaith, who were them one, two three. Oh definitely. Shane West, who are them? One, two, three. Yes well. Yeah. He's Shannon what would you call his most iconic for you for Lindsey? Better. One of those can hardly weights whatever whatever, whichever one of those movies that he was not in can't hardly wait. No, he was in though the one that's like Jason to that is no one will. I'll walk to remember watching one, hundred percent, his most iconic I would agree with that. But it came on, came along this same time as those other movies he was in. Yeah. He was also comically one of the people who played themselves in Ocean's eleven. There was like Tokyo grace played himself. In the poker game yet, topher grace played himself. Shane West, played himself. Can you name the other people that pope reporting? There are five people playing themselves, poker game. Shane. Tougher, grace. Jon favreau. No they're all young. I'd only noto for. Great, Jackson. Oh. Fuck. You're right. Josh Jackson our a woman and a man. Seventh, heaven. Jessica. Biel know that the man. Berry area. Go One left a woman. Similarly. WB. But a woman. Second Tier WB. Second Tier W. Give me another armed. Oh Holly, Robinson? No now holly. Robinson beat. You're close. You're sort of the way they're. Holly. Holly. Holly Murray Combs Marie combs, but she played someone named Holly. Holly Marie combs is her name. Yeah Holly Marie comes. Okay. Great. Well, now, her name she married last name Ryan. So now her name is Holly Marie combs. Ryan, which is too many names. I knew it was holly. Right yeah, he was also shot was also in over it, which I would say is a less oft mentioned I never saw. Of those. Oh, it's good. It's fucking good it. When I was that age I was like I, don't need to do this nobody. I never saw that other movie I never saw. Yeah. Drive me crazy. Never sought. We really never saw never. See it. It's so cute. Adrian grenades, I. Big Horny role. Okay. anyways. You gotta add these to your list, get over it and what list what I'm. Larry. Added to your list. Okay. What's next? Hi, guys, longtime listener longtime caller. But recently been sucked into the world of criminal minds. Thanks to Tiktok where the teams are obsessed with full mind I didn't realize was possible. But it is I've never watched the show before and their particular Szeswith. Matthew Gray Gubler. I didn't know if he is were out I. Mean I think I know but I wanted to call it out because I? Feel like I think the team thinking of them and I think like at some point. I. Think he's been who, but the name is. So like you know the name, anyway, my questions. Orange crunch me angry. This is our friend ray full disclosure. This is nepotism is. Ray. Ray Has the audacity to call them and say is Matthew Greg Kugler or them. She knows the. I think I think what Rachel wants to tell us and I do appreciate her like letting us know because this is a very raiatea array like type of subject, which is that teenagers love criminal minds, criminal minds, I think is a Vami show, but it's also a CBS procedural. So it's like a very particular category of them I just like learning that there is a show and this was always will always be the case and I'll never watch. Watch this. I'll never watch the show but to learn, oh, like this is show. That is like coming back, and this is a star that seniors are horny for because all of a sudden, they're watching the show that honestly I could not even tell you the name like until now, I'm like criminal criminal minds like wishing you know and guess how many episodes of this show there are three, hundred and twenty, four you fucking you bet on the? Internet twenty, four episodes. We've got Mandy taken. We've got some are more. We've got Matthew Gray. Gubler, we've got no one else I care about. A Jennifer Love Hewitt eventually appears it's just like it is a hugely popular perceive rain. Who? Who Huge, hills. Rachel. He's h all don't call. Thank you for calling but. Rachel Rachel. Okay. Next the next. Hi Bobby Linzie. It's Nora and eating. And we're having a little disagreement about EMINEM. Then I think that there are only two EMINEM's and they are both dims and they are playing and are Pena. And eating thinks they're all kinds of eminem that are also them? and. So we both thought who better to ask you guys. Crunch Crunch Sii. Okay I didn't think we were talking flavors I. Thought we were talking the colors and I was gonna say Green Eminem Sexy Green Eminem is number one. And, then yeller. Do. Yeah. Well, they have personalities. Everyone knows the green eminem is sexy lady. Come on don't. But. Red And yellow were the OH. Gee. Green Green, flew ahead. Green and then yellow kind of the second remains like Samantha Jones. Yeah, you know she is okay. So fine. If we're talking flavors, I will not I will stop talking about the personalities of the EMINEM's fine. I. Will Them Es Eminem is I would say the two them's or the maybe the to them's I would say are only chocolate milk chocolate and peanut. That's exactly what I was the only to them and you know who is a close? WHO's almost them of eminem flavors though like on the. Them. No. Being not butter. Thank you. That's my fav-, eminent. I. Oh. My God. They're so good. I would say. Yeah, I also prefer peanut, but I don't I still prefer recess pieces because I. Think it's a better ratio and reasons is. Perfect at the peanut butter, chocolate ratio, but em peanut butter. are a little more satisfied because it's a different type of peanut butter, but it's also a lot more peanut butter. The ratio is like let's blow them with peanut butter. There are bigger size pizzas are a nice like my favorite movie theater snack resist pieces, but a lot of theaters shout out to Williamsburg cinemas. First Theater that I've ever gone to. Where whenever you order candy, they say room temperature frozen because they. Can't I love Renton as well? I think that I was. In the world, I have a fun fact for you slices pieces. Okay. In nineteen eighty two, the Mars Candy Bar Company rejected the inclusion of EMINEM's in the new Steven Spielberg. Movie three of my favorite front rider Hershey on the other hand, took a chance with a reese's pieces which are similar to eminem's but contain peanut butter with the movies blockbuster success. The candy dramatically increase perhaps by three hundred percent. So basically et made reseal. That's one of my favorite fun facts that so cool like Reza's visas only as as popular as it is because of eighty and because no end because Eminem said, no, thank you. No, thank you, sir, we don't WanNa be in this movie. Thank you, sir. No. Thank you. Sir. So let's talk about the other flavors. What are some other flavors? That what, what are, who we? What are some who we flavors that you liked? Peanut butter would be number one and I would say Pretzel and Crunchy are fun and I have bought them before I. Think also we have almond, which sometimes is considered by me to be something I would maybe want. But the all the other ones. All, the other ones I would say our shit like a lot of meal like they're like, they have a new run of them. Have you seen the new run where it's like toffee Jalapeno tie coconut English toffee. Like I'm not the most Ari Caramel. Meghan was really into Eminem's flavors and I got to try a lot of them because she bought somewhat one of my last like hangs with them. That's actually really sat out. Dual say is really good interest logistically at the Mexican. Really. Good. Sorry, I'm I'm way more open to new flavors. Of Kit Kat bars all faced any I think new. All do any flavor kick. Marvin EMINEM's I'm I'm going to go kind of traditional Trad Eminem. Peanut, butter plane. What is your if you had to pick one of the two? One hundred percent peanut. No. Sorry. Play in her peanut planer peanut. Peanut. AMAS. As much as I think, I prefer overall gun to the head. Plane. Why do we always end up talking about food? Fun. It's universal. EMINEM's everyone needs, and I was really into for a short period of time. The Minis just fucking throw those down the Gullet, just pour down your throat. In the little, the little pop top. Little pop top. I. Had a really crazy insane obsession with eminem's minis and I kept all the tubes kept them in a drawer. How many tubes did you have? A lot of tubes. So then like what happened to the tubes did your mom like find them in you to throw them away where she like you can't keep these I was like I just thought they were cool and I, was like I'm going to do something with them and they never did anything with them and I kept all of the tubes and then one day I was like this is stupid. I had away did. Did sort of like the time. When I was like a little kid, I kept all up until I was like in high school. I. Kept every birthday card I ever received. Wow, and all my birthday cards were in this like folder in this drawer and one sister was like I was looking for something sister was bedroom and she saw like my thing of all my birthday cards we're talking I was maybe sixteen or seventeen. And she was like you keep all your birthday cards and yet she was like I used to do that and then I. was dumb and I throw them all away and literally the moment she left my bedroom I, throw them all the trash. She's the persuasion just like. My sister is like Tony? Soprano of my life she. She could tell me do anything. It'd be like, okay. We. I'm just thinking about all the things you could have done with all those mini eminem tubes. If you cut them, you should've kept them. Think of all the things you could've put in them. Okay. We're done. Oh, my God. Thank. God. We're done this. We were okay I. Don't want to get into it, but it's a really long recording. Yeah. To Eleven. Thank you for listening to WHO's there? We'd be Golden Show Cologne at six, one, nine, who them, if you WANNA, leave a question comment or concern or talk about candy. This is this was a lot of fun. Some Patreon.com for twice-weekly bonus episodes and occasional other bonus episodes, Olson instrument twitter, and we will see you on Tuesday with another episode of the main show by everyone. Thanks. Bye Bye. A. Same. halen's Bobby medium. First Time, I guess daily came up on the show for the first time in a really long time and made me realize that there's like something that I probably should have shared a long time ago is that I lost my virginity and trying to bed. Yeah I was. Close with one of her grandchildren and recording split together, and we would all. like go get seven her apartment when she lives in La would like. You, know pick up her Tony's in her enemies and it was like a Wifi there and the high school's records there and the night. It happened like I'm probably going to bring my boyfriend. I was sixteen and her granddaughter was like just don't do it on my grandma's bed and I was like totally So yeah, I don't know if this is the kind of thing like to play. but I figure that it was worth the share live in Libya to laptop countries. Seem to. Be? A again, kind of. do you? The, late absurd of his employees can. You Venus and I can confirm it is eight percent ice cream to you know, don't give all the credit because it was not like British. Ice Cream giant company will in nineteen eighty.

Mt. Rushmore of Yacht Rock

"Readings. Welcome to the marriage for podcast. My name is Jefferson joined as always my good friends, Richard, Loe and Michael. outy Richard Michael Debate and deliberate the Mount Rushmore of many topics. This time they are taking on a contender, a pretender, a rocker or yacht rocker to the throne. That is Tim Grand. How're you doing tim a Ahoy doing life? Tim The topic was your suggestion we appreciate you. Coming along to our to us in our time of need is suggesting such a great topic and what Sir is the topic that you suggested. Topic that I suggested is the the Mount Rushmore of yacht rock. That's awesome. What inspired you to sue justice a few cocktails on the fourth of July. Be True but I had always been a fan of yacht rock and for July was a couple of drinks and we watched A. Live stream of a concert, buy a yacht rock cover band and. was just you know loving it and I realized like there's You know there's actually two or three different sort of yatra cover bands out there and each ban Kinda has some different songs that they specialize them, and there's a few that you see always pop up and just you can just tell the room lights man. They're definitely like some really lake key song. So this John Minogue actually make a really good Mount Rushmore. Immediately, hit you guys have this idea. We are glad you did is anybody. Would you mind chiming in and tell us what what do you think are qualifications for Song to be considered to be yacht rock part of the John Mara. Well, you know I think there's a few elements to it. I think it's You know it's like seventy late seventies through the eighties kind of soft rock You know it's definitely got kind of a west coast sound. They call. You know there's just something really easy going about it. It's never too aggressive and fast, but it's never too slow and Sierra be imbalanced or rarely is. it's very slickly produced. You know it doesn't sound like a little. You know rough garage bands are guys that are just playing raw intense music. It's it's been. It's very thought full considered a very professional musicians who just are very polished and so that sounds that waiting every clear vocals and you've got you know just quick little hit some Guitar Solos. They aren't these long. You know endless things that go on and You know there's a lot of key people that you see pop up on each other's music. So it's like I think what the? Yacht rock show that I kind of inspired this genre came along with early two thousands. and was kind of looking back on this sort of era of music and they have been retroactively applied this rock to it. But I think one of the things the show is tapping into his idea this sort of network of musicians and singers and songwriters. It were all just sort of working on each other's in each other songs, and so you can have a lot of these similar sounds and voices at you're hearing. So certain personnel and producers and singers and writers pop up on all these songs that kind of help categorize them as as yacht that kind of become part of this they come out of this community of musicians. And I think the most important thing is just that it's move will write on let's let's Let's anchor and let's steer away out of the harbor and a captain you're going to give us the first of your choice of four mount. Rushmore suggestions. What's your first? All right. My first choice is toto. There Song. Rosanna. Wow. Yes, I think. They are WANNA. Be Foundational. Groups. In this genre and there are definitely a few songs I kind of went in circles deciding which one I think is, is the most emblematic in the most worthy of being on the Mount Rushmore but. This is the one I land on I think it's kind of got a little bit of everything that you want out of. Song and it's just it's a straight up banger man. It's just a it's fun i. a lot of people I can think of Africa have these little too gimmicky to me at times. This one feels a little bit more purely in the yacht rock. Yeah I think I think hold the line is a little too hard rockin. To be. Yes. Was Toto a one of those bands that was made up of when you talk about one of the charming things about rock is the cross polarization between the musicians producers. Was Toto that studio studio band that kind of became a real its own thing. Okay. Yeah. They're definitely. Yeah. One of those actually. The Eagles were that way too. They were kind of like Linda, Ronstadt Span I think and then they begin band but toto more simply i. don't think they feel like they were attached to any one artist they just all of these guys could to show up get the job done real fast just do you let the I once or twice you know through and then they'd be out there all business just very uber proficient musicians. Is Is this. Song Really. About Rosanna arquette. I've heard tell that it was. I feel like they've always like to keep up the mystery about whether it is or not. Be I mean. Okay. I'M GONNA pretend that it is no matter what attended it is this is not the only hit song because supposedly Peter Gabriel wrote in your is also about Roseanne Arquett. Really so I didn't know that part. Yeah. They lived together for several years. And in the Same thing says, she's behind Rosanna. I think Linda McCartney Eastman was also the inspiration for not just one or two, but I think like. Hit songs. But yeah, that's a that's a cool way to come out a smooth. Another Mount Rushmore. Right. There are women who inspired songs Oh for sure. Oh. Break that down Michael. Yeah I'll market. Black Betty of being one of the ram lamb. So, guys Tim grantland comes comes out smooth but forceful with his first choice. What do you got? Well our first choice or at least I? Guess I'll go first which seemed like the most obvious one which is sailing by Christopher Cross You know a, you know a love song to. His boat and to a canvas sail and to you know just just getting away getting away from it all and it feels like this is the song that if If Nirvana had written a song that was literally called grunge and then you do. GRUNGE rock was named after the entire genre. This this feels like that this is like when people think of Yacht Rock, they think of lift the literal song about Being on a yacht and sailing, and it has to be this This real just dreamy. Song about about about being on a yacht and some certain in a lot of ways. I think it's important you that you touched on it's it's about getting away I feel like that's a lot of the songs. There's a sort of getting away whether it's on vacation or escaping or renting away from mistakes. But there that's definitely an element of yacht rock for sure there seems to be like. Yacht rock or like this kind of soft rock. Kind of early mid nineteen seventies to early eighties. It is so antithesis of like importance or reaction to the world around you. You kind of it's like it's music that you listen to when you don't when like you have nothing to protest or like you have no strife really like what is he getting away I I can't imagine what? He's getting away from he's just kind of. Michael, his mutual funds, his mutual funds took a real tip. That does to a man. It just doesn't feel like a response to anything that's happening in society. It's just literally a you know. Soft and syrupy and you know. The quintessential song you'd here on coast if you're on the west coast literal. Another you know another thing that was tied into yacht rock and the songs. Illing, is coast. FM is just all about. Just taking it easy. Songs aren't going to challenge you in the office. All right ten grand which your second choice. My second choice was actually also Christopher Cross sailing. Okay. It's so emblematic like you said, it's literally in the in the title of her sailing, but you know it's You Know I. Liked that you thought like usual funds or not having much streisand control. So interesting to me if you if you actually look at the person Christopher Cross, he's like the least cool like he's the last person you look and go oh, that guy won a boatload no pun intended. Boatload of Grandes and was like this huge musical sensation for the. Entire period of the early eighties, it was like one of the best selling artist because he just. Lily just kind of like oversized Polos in jeans and was kind of you know receding hairline and like he just didn't look cool at all. But. Yeah. He's one of those guys that MTV was not kind. To him like. A. Cut to the boats more is what the director of the. Video for sailing. will say. Video killed the Radio Star for him actually very specifically. Yes. Have you seen have you seen recent pictures of him where he he looks like? The perfect cross between From two. Yeah, the perfect cross Christopher Cross between. Kyle Glass and Jack Black for a while. In that sense baby I'm excited to look for throughout the rest of these choices. Any lyrics in a choice that have any kind of strife whatsoever. Anything other than white guy problems. Rich Guy. And in what range of falsetto Michael McDonald singing them. That's what I'm curious about. An important thing too that I thought about like when I was putting together my Mount Rushmore, I wanted to make sure you know there were certain songs multiple songs from one artists and I was like technically I really like this song better than this other one by needed to represent kind of different artists who were these pillars of the. John Rushmore. For. Sure. So you know for Christopher Cross I kind of kept going back and forth and one of the considerations the other songs is thinking about the didn't make the cut was ride like the wind because of the Michael. McDonald connection. Glad you mentioned him. Okay. All right. From hoisin together and Manno. That song he's got to make it to the border Mexico in that can't be a good situation for any. Is he on his boat trying to make it to the border? or the winfield in men Freddie. All right. So our second choice, there's a little bit of strife in this one there Jeff. Unless you a couple of questions. You like Pina Coladas. Or do you like getting drunk in the rain? Do boy do I have a song for you? Talk I am talking about escape otherwise known as in parentheses, the Pina Colada Song, Oh, wonderful by remembered homes. Yeah, it's it's a fantastic. She's ball song. But it's something that I think not a lot of. Rock songs are, which is a story Song whatever reason got rock songs to be a little bit more. Ephemeral with what their topics are about. That very linear. Yeah. They're. They're not telling you a story. And that's the case with escape is this is the story of someone who's Relationship with this woman's not going very well. So he puts out a added in the local newspaper looking for someone who likes Pina Coladas. and gets a response and shows up to the bar to meet the woman and it turns out. It's woman. What do we Old Lady? He goes there. and. They realized that they have more in common than they thought and everyone lives happily ever after. And I chose the song partially because Rupert Holmes who wrote and sang the song. Wound up becoming a multi time Tony Award winning Broadway writer and. And producer. And nobody will ever remember him for that. When he dies and I hope it's not for a long time even though we do have a tendency to Chris people on the show. With happens you know that the he will be rupert the Pina Colada Song. That's what he's be. In parentheses on his tombstone. And I think that just just sort of goes to the power of this song. How can of? Timeless it's become and it's so damn catching. It is an ear were whether or not. Whether or not it's good. Is kind of irrelevant or than anything else it's catchy than what it stands for. I have you heard Rupert Holmes on the Gopher Gottfried policy or there's another songwriting podcasts in which. The details behind the making of the song? That he shares are so fascinating because he claims that he was recording this much longer. And the drummer was drunk or hung over or on drugs or something event all of the above and the drummer could the only part of this longer song that they were able to record successfully was the dump Dune don't all bump Up but there was a problem for those apart after but it's the last day of the recording session. He's got only that bit to work with. So he loops it and that's the song and he also claims that he was so concerned Oh he also says the. Lyric. was if you like Humphrey Bogart. Be. because. Yeah. He's made the song up like twenty minutes. Yeah and that one one of the reasons why the lyric scan so poorly I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon like who sings nobody talks like that nobody seems like that. He claims that he what we hear was the first. Time. He sang it and he was trying to test the premise tests the surprise. So he asked his guitar player to just kind of go along with it. And he wanted to see in real time. Does this guy anticipate the ending of the levers reuniting with their actual lovers? So that's why it was something so poorly. None of that seems real but he claims to be true. Yeah. I actually. So Richard You mentioned that you know he went on to win several Tony's the show he won them for was the misery of it with group and we did it my senior year of high school and my senior year of college just coincidentally wow it's an amazing accomplishment because first of all the show Two, hundred, fifty, six different endings or something does the audience boats on the ending they stop a show about three quarters away through the go and the audience votes on who they think the killer is who they think. The mysterious detective is which people are GonNa Fall in love this whole crazy. You know multiple mutations that can happen at the end. So said that's Already, an incredible conflict zone. This guy wrote the book he wrote The music he wrote the lyrics all by himself in one Tony for all three nobody ever does that no. So say we're doing the show my senior year of college and we actually have Rupert Holmes come to the University of Virginia he comes he sees the show and he needs all the drama students. During the day one time for like emails Speaker Series Sessions. So you had a PR played us the Pina Colada Song told us the story sort of in real time right there. Intimately just like thirty of us in hymns being on the stage playing that song and. It was super cool. Kind of. What a day that must have been so much fun. It was it was a lot of fun it was. Re. He's such. A passing is million other stories like he's right on Barbra streisand songs, and so he's just one of those like poly massive just has been going for hours stories. Very Cool Guy Definitely recommend looking at any interviews you can find with. We'll see if we can get him on the podcast, the Mount Rushmore of him. So dudes we're at halftime and. We have on our podcast, a living breathing example of an individual who was listener and then. gave us great suggestion is now joining in. So you have their paternity, do that as well go out onto facebook twitter instagram and let us know what you think of the podcast. Let us know what you think. A good suggestion would be for future episode. You don't have to be a guest on it, but we look to hear from you then if you would wouldn't mind go back and. Leave us a rating review on past episodes download them listen to him We subscribe, please please subscribe. We'd love for you to do that. And we are back from our halftime and Tim Grantland. Is Not, only a performer because it sounds like he did Mr Edwin Drood a few times in the venue, the mill you of musical theater but he is also a prolific era guitarist Sir us about. Your recent character who performed yes. So I've been doing A. Competitive Era Guitar for over a decade now But this year, obviously due to the pandemics We could all of our championships got cancelled our all of our regional competitions in our national championship and even the International, the world chimps. Oh canceled but the US decided we were spoken to take advantage of this time to do something a little different than. So they did an online edition of the US Air Guitar Championships and so we all have an opportunity to shoot our own Era Guitar Video So instead of being confined to stage of Ticker Club or venue, this was everybody kind of did it wherever and whenever they wanted to. The video. So. This is here I was finally able to finally do something I've been thinking about kicking around to do a a yacht rock sort of performance and always worrying about how go over in a competition in a real rock and roll clubs like the. something. Like well now that I can do it anywhere I'm Gonna I'm GONNA shoot it. I'm GonNa do this not rock performance on a yacht. So I I Chris Myself Yacht Lakes Houlahan an honor of former. Former, US and world champion hotlinks. Lan Dave's himself after the character in mass Yacht McLuhan and I rented a a sail boat and went out there with a friend and his camera, and he actually shot a music video of Me Performing Air Guitar? To Toto's Rosanna. Grew at sea. That's great. Super. told us mood is that something that lived and died with the competition or is available to view by viewers if we were only get to the show notes who? Could actually go to twitch US air. Guitar. Has a twitch channel and we actually have our. Our the championship, the online, Timpson that we've produced a whole beautiful show all around it with commentators and the telestrator drawing diagrams over the video. Had Judges Zoo. Several show shows actually up and available on US Air I switch Chow. Alyssum. Check that out. There's kind of a retrospective show. There's all kinds of other content on there as well. But Yeah, look up to twitch channel words. To Look US Air Guitar you'll find all kinds of fun and great videos from a lot of really talented people over the years. Well, that's fascinating. I would also ask as we kind of segue into our third choice. A. Guitar key instrument do believe in the yacht. It's obviously we're a key instrument Iraq that a yacht rock not not necessarily features a guitar so it's not used. It's used in a smooth way. Exactly I think key element now and I think you know one of the key people Steve Lucas third of of toto he's the guitarist for them and you know one of the things that he can often bring to a yacht song. It's just a quick and peaceful little solo is an indulgent. We're not talking you know led Zeppelin Jimi page title was something quick and efficient Polish smooth gets any gets the job done and gets back out of the Song So yeah. But some of the Rock in yacht rock when needed Cool all right. Well Tim what is your third choice for the Mount Rushmore Third Choice is at Doobie brothers led by the one and only Michael McDonald one of the the titans of the world and it's the song what a fool believes. Awesome. By the way also on our list. It's it's stone cold classic. I needed sleeve and Scott. You know it's got keyboards I. Think we can talk about insurance like synthesizers, keyboards, men very sort of electronic sound having nightmares really really key. That's one of the things when I hear that I really think about you know. Yacht knock, and of course, Voice of an Angel Michael McDonald just Lyndon his pipes to this It's Kinda London subject matters the atlas about shoo rules and and whatnot the around here. This is I think it was a really huge oversight and your guys is previous Mount Rushmore of replacement singers. Nobody mentioned Michael McDonald in the Doobie Brothers as oh I can't imagine not writing the mench. I think I think I just automatically just assume Michael, McDonald, and the DOOBIE brothers they're so tightly connected I forget that he was a replacement singer so and they became a completely different I think sometimes you forget because they don't even sound like say Band I. Think He'd be here a free post. Song from the Doobie brothers the same group really do yeah. His that this was not the same band that had lecture the good times kids about. Not scalping tickets. Must So I chose about the way. So we chose this one and what are the reasons I chose it. was because this was you talked about a meeting of the titans. This was the first song to brought together Michael McDonald and Kenny loggins. Yeah. So Michael McDonald was having had like the riff to the song and an adverse, but he was having trouble getting a course and the rest of it together. So his bass players at just happened to say, oh I, I, know Kenny loggins and he's been he talked about he loved work with you. So, Kenny INS pulls up to Michael McDonald's house after they talk on the phone, Michael McDonald is just playing the riff incurring to work it out and Kenny loggins. He hears it from outside when he comes in these like what's that riff? That's what we need to work on I think I have an idea for it and it just went from there. It was like the songs were full Mitt, the song was meant to be and it is it is a gym I know we talked you know you talk about yacht rock and sometimes. The there are things that make a song memorable other than the quality of the song. That's not the case here. This is a straight out fire song in my Agree one, hundred, ten, percent I mean I I love. You know you talk about how he just Kinda you heard it outside and juicy, just come by the house. Heard it outside. And then match make a song and it goes back that thing all these guys just kind of knew each other and would just. Kind of all collaborating and that they can just crank out these incredible like Alzheimer's songs just. Off The cuff like it. Didn't require years of laboring over these things. It wasn't dislike creative masterwork that took their entire lives to make. It's just these things they just you know just. Real quick just you know these brilliant guys were just so good that. They can just do it so easily. Dube's I think there earlier performances. I think they from for a lot of like biker rallies and things like that. So I think they don't necessarily fit within the. The wealthy country club vision of yacht rock. So that's kind of. The more side do you do you imagine that the same lyrics like I can imagine Kenny loggins outside hearing Who? And thinking those with the actual lyrics. Driving can phonetically to Michael McDonald. Bombay where we all do our Michael McDonald thinks. Out. Angie. I have to confess it was it was just a couple of weeks ago I was doing dishes. What will believes was on the radio or somehow it was playing and my wife asked me what is this song about and I got misty eyed? Describing. It's about some guy as a woman is leading them all it literally just like it was like I was describing my romantic life or something like that. He doesn't know that she really doesn't love her. She's using him, but he believes that she's in love with a full believes he sees and she just went okay like I got a little bit teary teary-eyed over the kitchen sink there. We didn't do that Michael McDonald and not get a little missy but also like not dance to it is kind of. Like move when you hear it it's just that goes back to what Richard saying just straight up stone cold fire Song Yeah. Yeah Scott. Great Group. All right. So this would mean Richard and Michael or giving us their fourth. Is it right? That's it are four. Okay. I'm our fourth song. Is the song moonlight feels right by the band starbuck who's a little known band out of Atlanta Georgia and this song has a thirty five second Marimba. Solo in the middle of it. And my God. Does this song need a five second Marimba will every song needs a thirty five second Marimba Solo? This song is not very good and I mostly chose it because it's it catches a lot of the same sort of themes of. Being out someone you love in the moonlight, but also taking her by the ocean up by Chesapeake Bay. So there's a lot of like ocean feelings towards the song and it's just I think we'll caught me are two things. One kind of the overall A kind of trysts by the cease sort. Aspect. To. The. Marimba Solo. And number three the lead singer does this super super creepy laugh like three or four times throughout throughout the song and he sings something and he's like. It's just like what is going on here. I duNno, it's like this little in joke that that it's just so creepy and weird and I, don't know it it. Really. It really got to meet Jeff when I sent you this song earlier. Just to say, Hey, we're gonNA talk about this this one song because I wasn't sure if if you would know. You eurobank to me. It's what Whiteboard Herbie sounded like in Nineteen, seventy six and as like a man, you've got this. So on key. I was. I guess. I'm old enough to have heard much of this music. In its first iteration I remember the Wimpy Rock Station in Kansas City played the yacht rock stuff Q. Four and Kansas City. Would play those songs but my mom also had all these records. She had all these things and she was single at that time father night split up her father and hurts her and. She had Irish had a party invite a bunch of friends over in the theme was Shangri La. You don't have to be a star to be in the show, Shangri la and I think those like a Stephen Bishop. Forget what lyric that was, but it was she had the record she had like a I guess then it was kind of a DJ playing all of these songs and. and. Everybody had a mustache. Even the women. Even. Timmy grantland. It's your time to shine because you're the last person to to share their last choice well. It's been going through my last. I was kind of envisioning a literal like. Not. Rushmore. With just these faces carbon gemstone kind of on the left. You've got a group of smaller faces making up toto and then you've got Christopher Cross own then you've got Michael McDonald's. Brothers is really all about that man there and You know their faces are carved into the granite up there. These these founding fathers of the UP, and there's one more than we brought him up earlier and it's time to make sure he's up there as well, and that's the one and only Kenny loggins with his son is heart to hearts rich. Coincidentally enough has Richard just mentioned on what a fool believes. This has Michael McDonald as well written he played the piano does the background vocals on it? So this is another one of those just the songs, the nexus of all things. Yacht robbed Universe I. believe There was not a rock song between nineteen seventy, seven in nineteen eighty Michael McDonald didn't do backing vocals. If you get a chance, there's an SETV skit Rick Miranda is again. As Michael McDonald. into a the backing vocals ride like the wind. Up. Make. Sure. You're listening. You haven't seen it yet. Go see it. It's fantastic. It's better music video for ride like the wind and the axel us. Yes Do. Feel perhaps Mike mcdonagh was not. I we didn't recognize him because he was a vocalist to partnered with. So many different almost seem like a gun for hire versus actual band member 'cause I I, would know of also on. Steely Dan. Songs that will. It interesting thing about him is like I don't think of him or I'll think of him a lot. But then you realize it wasn't really hit was the DOOBIE brothers him with Kenny loggins send with with you know Christopher Cross that's. What do I know of that? Donald on his own just like so. Yeah. But that's not to take away from the Great Kenny Loggins who said many acts of his career I feel like, oh. Yeah. Like spoke Ernest Kenny loggins and then there's yacht rock Kenny loggins but then he goes big time becomes like the King of the movie Soundtrack Song. So there's kind of that Third Virgin Kenny Walk. This. Rogan's. Would I don't know this song from the name of it? I can't I think we need to hear you sing some of it. I Jeff Jeff Jeff, there's a reason as air guitar. Starts out slow and. A low baseline beats like. Do. You kind of draws you in and Kenny's singing softly, and then he just Kinda hits you in this big giant chorus then it goes back. To the slow gear games, big cords, and then the bridge and this is key got saxophone so on it's A very eatings instrument in a very yacht rock instrument. That I loved here because he's got a nice little. Sax Solo in there. Then you're also hearing some good keyboards again, there's even some which mccalla. Conga drums in there little bit of that. You're at a lot of times, Nathan the Percussion Yacht Yatra songs. Exotic seal. This song is a is a is a straight up banger. A love it I tim I could have a show where you just described songs 'cause you. You've just commute. You'll Gustavo this. This. Great. Thank you thank you I you do have to respect loggins because. Like the loggins and Messina stuff was so folk influenced than did feel very much a product of kind of like the late sixties in the folk. Movement and then. Yeah get into yacht wreck and then his ability to do these High kind of testosterone. Kind of. Blockbuster movies to. Zone, you know. Yeah. How was that the same? Guy. Credit. That's the genius of Kenny Loggins. Support he he tells. Stories of also being on tour with fleetwood Mac. During their kind of freefall. Cocaine nightmare? Years. You don't so all of them. All of the years of Fleetwood? Mac. All of the years. Okay guys. So any parting comments from Richard Michael? No I. Think it's great that we were able. I think to show the a wide range of yacht rock. You know that it's more than just. It is it's all smooth, but there's different. Different ways that smooth can go. Yeah. You know I saw yacht Lee crew in concert and they did incorporate even a little bit of Graceland Paul Simon. Stuff in there too. So it felt like it was a the categories, even more broad and the audience was Kinda love in it. So it seems like the categories pretty broad category. Because I feel like the guy who did the rock. Show way back when and then who kind of coined the term I think he's very dogmatic about what is or isn't official yacht rock and as a whole rating scale and all of that. But I think you know especially with bands like Yati Crew Harbor Party I think you're seeing people kind of open up. The category a little more and I think there's also room to say, well, this isn't exactly yacht rocker me. But it's just a damn good song and it's kind of a cousin of yacht rock and. I WanNa hear that Damn Song citizens. Full Yacht rock yeah. This is a white white man's over by kind of dance and song and so this kind to. Fit. Winfield we're going to. Oh I was just thinking of just you know the. the like ironic enjoyment of yacht rock by people in their thirties too early forties. Now, that didn't quite grow grow up with it or maybe had it on as something that their parents listened to and I think of just that moment and forty year old virgin where they're just Paul Rod just rallying or railing against Michael McDonald. Dishonest been replying over and over and over and. You know we talked about how this is music that can easily be played within a an office environment, but it cannot easily be played over and over in. An, electronic superstore environment. I think. So many people probably just like. Oh these people making kind of making fun of this and then I wonder how much that just kinda started seeping into them pop culture little bit. Well, it's fun. It's infectious and I raise a Tequila Sunrise or opinion Kaleida or a at least a. A some kind of boat drink to him for for suggesting this topic and I appreciate you you come to us with it and congratulations tim because you just trounced these dudes. It is I think you should throw life preserver in at least pullman out of the water. But let me reiterate Tim's choices. Rosanna sailing. What a fool believes, which the dudes also chose you guys get a point for that and heart-to-heart and appoint sailing too well Gosh you guys. Okay. Oh okay. Guess Fifty Fifty, fifty fifty. So better than I thought I thought so. Tim When is the next guitar? Anything is it's going to happen soon to isolate. Thursday a lot TVD I think there's going to be content coming out on the US Urquhart, which shelby. Let's Kinda keep following that. But I think as far as sort of live shows in another season of competitions. Hopefully next spring and summer was traditionally when they are. But we'll see how the copen situation pans out. Can do what. But until then we'll keep a practicing in our in our basements, our bedrooms, and then we'll be ready to take it back out on the state when we're allowed to. Sweet. Awesome Awesome. That's a good contact with thing because you're not even being on contact with a guitar. Really there's no. No. Air Everything. Seemed like six feet of distance would be easy for that that. Art. But when you're windmilling, you're just sending all the germs. Out It's the audience. Point taken or thank you very much timber being on the show. This has been the Mount Rushmore of yacht. Rock is always Jeff. I'm Richard I'm Michael.

I think because probably you know your history and the draft story and everything else and in here. You were starting games and winning games games in in sort of Igniting that fan base. It's it's a pretty cool honor knows awesome and You know to be able to donate money to move. Member also is obviously a really cool. The thing But Yeah I guess the fans light me pretty good so they vote for me. And that's how you when things like this and it was kind of a magical season even though it was a disappointing appointing season for Jacksonville and everything that went on down there. I'm just trying to think. Can you think of another quarterback that was drafted in the sixth round that has had any successes. NFL none off the top of my head As I know that you're kidding because we all know that it is Tom Brady and the one thing that I think could probably take is the similarity where from where you were drafted and the fact that you've got thrust into something because somebody in front of you got injured which is unfortunate in the NFL but it does happen and you seize the moment and you seize the moment to the point that when Nick foles came back he unfortunately didn't perform well and they gave the starting job back to you. We used to prize by that. I was I was. There's no bigger fan of nick. foles them the me. Every time he's out there on the prayer in some way let them go score so he can play and he can do well and we can help us win But when it was my turn to get called I know in Gaza this team that I can't let down that put in too much work for me to be one to mess that up for them so I was just trying to pull my weight and do my part talking to Gardner Minhsiu. So what's this this whole thing about the like the stretching naked or something. What was that story? That thing took on a legend of its own like after games. You'd be there like doing some like naked yogurt so I got my bands that I do. You know after you know after every time I throw so is typically just at some point. I'm undressing. I see them like only do these. You know so but a lot of times it did happen whereas in jockstrap not intentionally. Where was this Most time Washington state. I did a couple of times in Jacksonville. But there's there's some opposition there was What's his plan for? Mike Leach was awesome. You know what you see on. TV like what you're seeing the interviews. That's all the time right. He like he doesn't treat anybody differently. Patriots everybody the same. Says exactly what he's thinking There's a blast play for him so what. What is his playbook like? Because I always see him on the sideline with a little piece of paper. I mean how does that work. Yeah no so he on that script. He has thirty open-field uh-huh plays ten red zone. Five Golan to point and he'll go down. Just go down the list and then usually we get to the second. You want to go to the top Mike. Let's go to the top so it wasn't like now trying to digest as rookie a professional offensive game plan and game an offense game book. Yeah it just takes time You know fortunately fortunately for me I was you know kind of verse and you know I went to four. Different schools in college is able to learn a lot of different offenses. And kind of get that you know I guess my system for learning that down on So when I when I got there just investment of time putting the work in Till till you never wanted to give up on your dream it seems like no absolutely not you know as a lot of times when you know nobody would have bet that I'd be were today but I know I would under my family. Would you know how some friends that would have bet that. So that's all that really matters. So there's some change their Jacksonville pill. Of course head coach is going to remain there but Tom Coughlin no longer there. You know we know Tom. Carlson from his years in New York. Tom Coughlin often think of you. And your personality. You guys have a relationship good. Tom Actually love me which I was thinking. He's probably GonNa hate me you know but he I think he loved it because you know he likes when people like John Back at a little bit and give them a little so we always always had a great time with Tom and he's a guy like when he's in the building you feel his presence like wherever he is like you know uh-huh Tom's there And he's definitely going to be missed and you know he's a big part of. Why Got Jack? I know it's hard to ask this of a rookie. But your impressions with the fact back that they kept your head coach. Yeah I think it's great. I think everybody in the locker room believes in coach. marrone blazing what we're building You know I think we had moments during the season that we saw you know what we should be and what we could be And the biggest thing is just finding consistency in that. Are you expect. I guess Nick Foles is going to be back next year simply because his contract is going to dictate eight that they owe him a lot of money and there's no way they're gonNa let them go. So is this an idea that this is going to be an open competition. Have they told you anything. Yeah so that's that's the plan right now I actually when I was out in California I had lunch with Nick. Had A great conversation. And you know we just want we want the best for each other and we want the best for our team so we're GONNA go ballot out you know. Try to make each other better. And that's eventually you'll make our team right now. That's and I actually believe you when you say that really align of knowing how Great Guy Nick foles his sitting with you guys really really. You're going to have a like sort of Nice competition training camp. I'm just trying to fathom like me and Phil Simms on the same team. We would try to reach across the table and strangling yes. That's you know this situation. It could've gone south so many different ways so many different times. But there's literally no body Eddie. I would have rather gone through with the neck just such genuine dude and you know. I think we're both. We both want to see each other do well all right. We'll hold up that Snickers chains who are TV audience here. That thing's beautiful seventy five thousand dollars on. QVC watches in the off season. Absolutely absolutely Joel. That money's GonNa go to Movember. Wants his auctioned off Gardner Menchu everybody you got the RV or whatever that the mobile Ho- what are you. What are you riding these these days? I'm back in two thousand eleven accurate man. I had to turn the RV and that was that was a tough moment for me. Tell tell them just. Apply yourself to your craft Gardner and believe me you'll be able to drive. Whatever the hell you WANNA drive in about three years that's fine? I appreciate that stretch in their order meant you.

Thank you all for marching on the one, and now please enjoy our special yacht rock episode of Hit parade the bridge. The. Hey everybody. This is Chris Milan, anti host of hip rate slates podcast of pop chart history welcome to the bridge. That's more than by Al Jarreau, a number twenty, one hit in May of nineteen, eighty, three and a song deemed essential by the inventors of the term. Yacht Rock. In the song the always smooth jazzy R&B Crooner Bids Good Morning to everything from his radio to his cheerios two in the second verse, the Golden Gate Bridge. Produced by Journeyman Jay Graydon and Co written with the equally Yadi David Foster Mornin reached the top forty fairly late in the yacht rock era. It was Algebra's last top forty hit until his theme from the TV show Moonlighting for years. Later, it was a bridge to the post out phase of his career. and. These mini episodes bridge our full length monthly episodes give us a chance to catch up with listeners and enjoy hip Hooray Trivia this month we have an extra special treat I have three of the yacht rock creators here to break it all down for us, JD reservoir, Dave Lions and Hollywood Steve Huey Co created the Yacht Rock Web TV series back in two thousand five and it not only won the Channel One on one competition through ten episodes it defined a genre far outliving their original creation their follow up series the podcast beyond yacht rock coined. Be genres like trion wraps hard organ divorce core new up, and my personal favourite dystopia in future in which rock and roll has been outlawed on the podcast they also created the yacht ski scale to scrupulously and scientifically rate weather songs are yacht or not. They are always smooth and frequently hilarious jd Dave and Hollywood Steve. Welcome to the bridge. Thank you for having. US. Thank you and it's great to be here. Thank you so much. It's great to be here. I am delighted to have you guys. I'm such a fan of the original web series. As I am also a fan of the music I am one of those crazy people who back in two, thousand six when you guys started touring around various places with the rock series and showing the videos in bars I went to a bar in Brooklyn New York and saw you guys I. Even answered a Trivia Question. The you guys were doing live from the stage. Somehow. The Trivia question was about Huey I'm not sure why? Because he's not yacht rock. But he's awesome but he's also and I write and whoever was asking the Trivia question coding called me I think either a total geek or a total nerd which of course, I am. I think that might have been you dave but I can't be sure that I don't think I would ever insult somebody's love of Huey Lewis this but I I wouldn't put. It also sounds like like my my level of Kwa Sas just cruel SAS. But I don't recall being on stage for that but I don't recall much. It's very possible. A couple of us were up there and Dave introduced it and I called you nerd. Well, it was an honor in any case So now you guys all helped create the yacht rock series Oh hi I'm Hollywood Steve You caught me relaxing in music. Nineteen, seventy, six to nine, hundred, eighty, four, the radio airwaves were dominated by reason smooth music also known as. Rent gave you played a pivotal role as Koko, Goldstein, the fictional mogul. Who is at the center the scene? How did those characters develop when you were dreaming the Channel? One. Oh, one show I think jd you wrote in hunter excuse me he wrote in cocoa. Somebody had to die. And you can't kill off a real person I don't even know I. Don't I don't know everybody that far ahead because spoiler alert Coco's killed in the second episode. Don't start so beautiful. Becomes the Christ figure of the series we needed someone to who was the center of the scene. Somebody. Who could be a little more outrageous I think the idea of A with a name like Koko Goldstein, just sort of like summed up yacht rock in the music business all in one avatar and then Dave put the costume together, which was just perfect and He cost you a tribute band to come out of the web series. Yeah. The costume was put together with just old crap ahead laying around my house, a women's Blouse. And then I made a harpoon. You're lucky things. And I've got my Lucky Harpoon Yes yes. Still well, in a way, you kind of became the fashion template slash icon of yacht rock because like what are all these guys doing? Whether it's yacht rock review the people who go to these shows in the audience but they're imitating cocoa basically right? I will say. It's not hard to draw a line from yacht rock to a captain's hat. But I'll also say I was the one that went out and bought all the cabin sats for the first episode and more as my character nice. So one thing that I covered in the episode that I wanted to talk to you guys about and get your theories is. Why did yacht rock catch on both yacht rock the TV show. Yacht. Rock, the musical genre slash concept was at the name was that the way you guys defined it what what made it so sticky first of all, when the show came out there was almost nothing to pass around the Internet yeah. This this was the very very early days of Youtube and there just wasn't a lot of narrative content on Youtube at that point. If you did anything slightly sticky. You could go a little bit viral as having us. Yeah and the shows I think are well crafted because they've got strong storylines, strong characters, high stakes. You know it's it's good basic. Formal storytelling I think you even had a cliffhanger at the end of the first episode. US. Usually, that's a no no at Channel One zero one you don't want to. Leave your story unresolved too much to get voted back. We we made for the Channel One on one contest and we were trying to get voted back for another episode. So we wanted to give them a taste of what might be next and it worked. Well, we got a lot of votes and I think the term caught on because it defined a kind of music that. People had been struggling to define ever since. It was being produced. Yes. I go back and read articles from the seventies and there's all sorts of terms that people trying to throw onto this music from jazz. Rock Revlon Rock. Some other stuff that's just nuts just doesn't work. So I think yacht rock is just so vodka tive. Yeah. Smooth music. Relaxing. Seventies when yachts were hot I, get it and I think that really helped the show on the term spread and I also think that it's it's a better term for the The Google Age because some of these other terms that we've seen applied to it, it's like. West Coast all one word. How do you Google? West Coast Yacht Rock is a lot easier to google. and. You know I. It also Mashes it with a visual style that may or may not actually fit the music but you know it puts an image in people's minds in a way that like west coast is not I think it's a catchy name you have alliteration right in the the two words. Even though that's not what I originally wanted to call it I voted from marina rock and luckily was voted down yacht rocks much better name. But I think it gave a name to something people knew existed but didn't know what to call it. Everybody had their own name for it whether it was. Soft rock or my friends and I had one called retail rock, which was songs that you might here while you were shopping for dress socks for your court data grandma's funeral. And Yacht rock sort of encompassed everything. Into, a more proper classification. Right and yet okay to argue the negative side. Not. That this was all that negative but people really went to town on the side of the equation. Right they've thought, oh, it's gotta be music about boats. It's gotTa be music. Related to seafaring and Jimmy. Buffett counts and people kind of went all the way down that peer if you will. Yeah, they took it very literally. We didn't leave people with a very great. Definition you know people had to watch watch the shows, understand the subtext, understand the relationship amongst the artists in real life in order to get what you out rock truly was. It was much easier to put on a captain sat and listened to Brandy by looking glass I'm doing yacht rock. We costumed every single yacht cover band to to come after the show they looked at the show. So That's how we're supposed to dress and it's fun and I think that helps spread the term to is these these tribute bands going out dressed in captains, hats and playing this music? I think it's important to stay that the word drove is cheap. It's it's accessible to people. You can go to a costume store and buy a captain's hat for like ten bucks you can go through on a Hawaiian shirt. And there's your look like it doesn't. It doesn't cost. You may even have the Hawaiian shirt already. Yeah. Exactly. Like when we there may be knowing. These episodes we were just telling people like, Hey, just pull out what's whatever's in your closet that looks like the seventies and wear that. So it's very, it's very thrift store friendly, which makes it a lot more accessible for for people to participate in I think totally but I mean to pivot from what was funny about it in the kitch- element I. always talk up the the episodes and the concept not just because of how hilarious the. Show was but how smart and specific your terms and your concept of what the music was. You know like how hard were you guys trying to be musical logical at real obviously, you're trying to be funny but were you. You really weren't trying to pinpoint genre, right? Yeah and seen at the same time like specific people all playing right records but we get story ideas by looking at liner notes and see who who played on what? and. Then when I was crafting the episode's I had to be like, okay, this is taking place approximately. February nineteen. Seventy eight what songs existed, what didn't what can we get away with pushing and so each episode was kind of constrained to an era that had happened and that helped give it a cohesion in a way a musical cohesion. early out rock a lot different than later yacht rock earlier yet rock tends to sound more like Baaz skaggs than Michael McDonald like the first couple of years a- perform believes comes out. Yeah and a lot of later yacht rock is driven by Quincy Jones a sound with Rod Templeton. So yeah, we were trying to be somewhat musical logical but of course, we just say there had to be fun stories as well and I guess after you came up with the stories and came up with the concept you kind of had to world build right? You had to sort of say well this. This has the Doobie bounce but then there's the whole the line which is kind of toto more rock yacht rock sound. And you sort of built out the corners of Yacht Rocker y sailing by Christopher Cross count as Yacht Rock, right? Yeah. Well, that must have been a challenge that was in our podcast. We started to go deep like ten years after the show came out. But when we were making the show, we weren't that distinctive. We didn't know the total rocked harder than most most yacht rock, and so you know we do an episode about Todos rocking too hard for Mike McDonald until he learns a smooth music and Ryan Steve. I heard the record never new that soon music rock. So hard ass oh. Sorry. I'm ready for the then when we got into the podcast and got into the Nitty Gritty, then we can start to see patterns emerge more clearly and be like. Well, this what a fool believes riff is is ripped off like crazy. After what a fool believes the hit and the style is also ripped off where they may not be doing the exact same notes like like steal away does they still that feeling and it's like this bouncy feeling and so we invented the term dooby bounced destroy to explain Oh. This is what we're hearing. It's very similar to what the DOOBIE brothers didn't like McDonalds writing songs but I. The I think when we were doing the web series, it was more just oh, we have a plot. There we go. That's the episode. Once there's a plot that's been built. It's like what else do we need to do with it? We're telling a story that's mostly fictional part of part of that was All we need to do is build out a value system for that world. Centered, around smoothness I learned I learned this taking their Robert McKee seminar just like an adaptation like once you've got your characters in your world built, the Cherry on top is building a value system for that world. And once we had that that was. I feel like that was what we needed to push it over the top. In terms of the the storytelling structure and all it all revolved around the value system of the Michael. McDonald character who for him like being smooth urine in his family, your his friend he admires you he can work with you in the club and being. Being unsmooth is a huge betrayal. Looking at the studio recorded song for Hollywood. got. Kenny loggins starts rocking it breaks his heart. Smoothness is the pinnacle of exactly. It's very important. When did you guys get the sense that yacht rock as concept and has genre with outlived the show? Yeah there were signs like there was an article written in like the San. Francisco. Whatever the San Francisco big free weekly was somebody just wrote a column about it, and then we had a page and spin magazine that December after we started making the show and it's like well, this is. Something's going on here. Oh, we're we're going a little bit viral I. We're we're the next house of Cosby's. And then the show got cancelled by Channel One on one audience and we're like Oh stinks and then like three days later, we'll get a call from this bar in Chicago that wanted to screen it and we were like, Oh, well, this is this is just might live on and then we we went there expecting it a Monday night expected like twenty people you know have some. Beers with people who liked our web show and then when we got there, there was a lion out the door and lake around the block a little bit and the place is packed to capacity people in captains, hats reciting lines from the show. It was absolutely thrilling and our episode that did poorly channel. WanNa WanNA got voted out was a huge hit with this Chicago crowd. So really. Felt. Very nice. which was was that the steely Dan Versus Eagles show. Yeah. Yeah Yeah I think it was a Channel One I'm audiences have. A core of people who come back every month, and then there's always some new people like what's this free thing I've heard about I'll go check it out and I think I think it just sort of because the main characters weren't featured. It was sort of a site episode. it just didn't translate well to people who didn't already know what was going on in the show, right but you know it also strikes me that what made the show von was that people had such affection for the music right I mean it was the kitsch factor and it was funny the episode's were but like you also again invented a genre. and. You know the music started to become its own thing, right? I mean. That must have felt gratifying. Yeah. I I think it gave people away to openly enjoy this music that you know a lot of people had always liked this or they remembered it from. Their parents record collections or they grown up with it. They never really got what was supposed to be wrong with it. And you know. A lot of this old school rock critic mindset is like it's rocket rule has to have this rebellious spirit name gotTa. Have High Energy. It's gotta be raw got a project it cool image that I can identify with. And you know this music wasn't any of that and so it a lot of times it just didn't get very good reviews. I mean you had exceptions here and they're like steely Dan was pretty. Critically acclaimed in everything but. It just wasn't. Hip or cool to like this music. And making making a comedy show out of. Not only starts to change the perception around what this music is, but it's also at the same time. Sort of giving people permission. And people who get into it. You know quote unquote ironically, right the more they listen to it the more they genuinely like it because it's very well crafted music. You know it starts to stick with them and they realize, Oh, wait this is actually good. One of the things I loved when you guys did beat the beyond yet rock podcast as we talked about really start honing on the boundaries of Yacht Rock was when you debated the. Of various songs. and. You know in the episode that I did I baste the songs that I included on your yacht ski scale which reveals. How yachting something is and I'm always intrigued by the songs that are right on the precipice there. They don't quite make the boat like somebody's baby by Jackson Browne or make a move on me by. John or hearts by Mardi. Bela? So do you guys still quibble over what goes on the boat? Steve you even did like purists playlists that had like stuff. You thought you go on the boat right Oh. Yeah absolutely. It's it's up It's almost six hundred songs. Now you can find it on spotify yacht rock appears history. But it was it was partly that I wanted to make a giant list that was in chronological order so that I could kind of trace how the music evolved and also I just kept finding and this was especially true when I was listening to more are in be around the time. I just kept finding songs. We hadn't covered yet and I wanted to get them all in one place. But Yeah I mean we quibble about this stuff all the time. That's I'm still mad at Steve for for a low Janowski score that kept privatized by hall notes oates off the boat and you're smiling face by James. Taylor. Off The boat I'm furious Steve for that but years. spouting like crazy I. Think the private is, is a yacht rocks on it's a new way talk. Rock Song Yacht Rock and new wave don't cross over for me same thing. A lot of singer songwriters stuff although I will say right here before God and country. That I. Got Somebody's baby wrong. That is a yacht rock song and I messed it up because I was probably. On that day. Cranky that anything that. had. A piano riff in it that sounded vaguely like what a fool believes we were just automatically throwing on the boat. And I will say that as we learned more and hone the definition. We got better at it. For instance, at the very beginning I wasn't even sure what a yacht rock song was. I just completely I think I tried to put. The cannonball run theme. On the boat at one point and it's a great song, which is which is terrific. Just excel terrific cells. Funny. Because fans because are you can go to Yahoo Dot com and see how each of us rated each song episodes it came on. So fans of made charts out of that and you can see at the beginning our our scores are all. Over the place in Gwen on because we did it for a year two it just the the scores are here and they were all in line with each other where we all sacred thoroughly understand what the sound was, which is good right because it means that you were sort of live and in real time defining the boundaries and the hallmarks of this Sean. Right yeah. In a very in a very specific way that we haven't managed to do with the web series there was an instance where we Riyadh ski a song by accident and I think the first time we ought skit got a fifty five and the second time we get months later completely having forgotten it was one of the thousand songs we've. We gave it a one point five points off. Three points off. So we figured that's the margin of error on the scales is about three points. That is not how I expected that story and I thought Dave was going to reveal Ross by twenty points you're off by only three that's really impressive if we were up by twenty points I wouldn't it told you the story All right. But it's good to know that somebody's baby belonging. That that makes me feel better. Yeah. If it's got the bounce it the thing I really love about the scales at sums up like like from the from the web show to like our podcast attitude people have about it when they go to to yacht rock events, the sense of like a small bit of irony that we take it extremely seriously like yacht rock revue we don't like what they do because they don't play A. Lot, actually out rock music, but they like take playing the song seriously they wear those songs and play him well, and so the scale is like this really serious study of genre like we have one hundred podcast episodes called yacht yacht that just go deep into defining this. There's nothing like that for anything yet we call it the yacht ski scale and we say it was invented by guy named Gene Yacht Ski. It's it's ridiculous yeah. What it works it's completely arbitrary, but it's not right. About it because speaking as a total pop nerd, it satisfies both the the comedy side of what you all do the irony, the wit, the SNARK, and yet you're taking it extremely seriously for a chart nerd like me there's nothing better. That's total cat and it just makes your heart. Smile. What I also loved about the Janowski episodes is that guys rated a lot of our EMBI, which is again, something I really wanted to bring out in my episode how important are in being yacht soul is to? The core of what the genre is. Yeah. First of all, the guys, all the Whiteout Rod, guys that you I think of Kenny loggins. Mike. McDonald. Steely Dan all growing up listening to black in be Jazz Kenny loggins like said, he patterned his singing voice after Retha Franklin among others. Those it's like Mike. MacDonald. Has Stories of hearing soul music out of his older sister's friend's eight track cars and his mind's being blown and yeah, all the total guys were interested in at the time they referred to as black. Music? and. So you know when Michael McDonald's, for example, goes into the dewey brothers. Doobie brothers were kind of an art be banned Tom Johnston AS TEMPLE DESCRIBE IT WAS R&B cat. Round But when Michael McDonald came in. He really brought some heavy duty are and beat of that ban. Jazz and people noticed and more people. WanNa do that. There's just a sound that was emerging pop music time. Back. Then by the time by time about nineteen, eighty rolled around seventy, nine, Eighty Quincy Jones at teamed up with Rod Ten ten and Quincy Jones. Extremely soulful jazzy sound was mixed with this guy with an extreme pop mentality and when they started recording music together it started you know that really kicked off the real yacht soul strain. And that that like David Foster and Jay Graydon writing for NPR earth wind and fire around the same time like. Seventy nine eighty is where is where those those worlds start to meet all these guys start playing on each other's records, and it's it's the same guys playing on. These quote Unquote White Pop records and the R&B stuff by black artists around the same time. It's the same cast of supporting characters. Right. So it's a true to use an overused term crossover music which I think also you know you guys were talking earlier about the moment when. Yacht Yatra rock called on in the two thousands and I speaking as critic with Lincoln to what I call the pop dimissed moment the moment when people began to appreciate that. Worthy Music didn't have to be played by a White Guy with guitar and you saw that you know music played by people of Color Music played by gay people music played by women disco obviously all deserve to be. Given some critical approbation I feel like yacht rock is the same thing and so the fact that it's music that has aren be baked into it even when white people are playing it so it makes sense to me that people are appreciating this music now and and don't feel like they have to be ashamed of and I'll give props also to the environment that I had working at the All music guide which. You know this this is. You know the world's largest online music database. And started in the. Early to Mid Ninety S. And their whole philosophy from the beginning is we're going to cover all music. It doesn't do us any good. If people come here looking for information about you know traditionally critically reviled genres like soft rock or disco or. Anything like that. If we just dismiss those genres out of hand, we need to evaluate them according to their own standards. What are they trying to do? How well do they do it? You know what are the best recordings in this style of music for people who are interested in this style of music when I was starting out I feel like that was a great mindset to be sort of. Indoctrinated into. And I like to think that it helped lay the groundwork for that that future. Optimist Movement because you know it becomes this huge online reference I don't know what wikipedia would do with all its sourcing. If if a MG ever went off line would just decimate the music section and coincidentally in for about a year when I lived in Ann Arbor after college I was I worked at the music guide as well. Steve was a critic no him at the time and. He may have been done in already moved to Los Angeles by then, but I had a job in data entry. So my job was to like look at the liner notes and track listings and just type them all into the database. So that was sort of my introduction of just like obsessing over liner notes, and that's where I started to see like the same names all the time and. You know you really get a sense of who the big studio guys were at the time. It was fascinating very boring but very fascinating. Well when we all met. Actually, Stephen I, went to college together and can even trace ourselves back to the same parties, but we don't really remember meeting each other until we moved to Los Angeles, it was at Jd's house. And most of what we did was sit around and talk about records. We'd pour over records me like, Oh hey, and everybody brought their own thing to the table. That eventually, you know you know how it is when a bunch of music nerds get together and start. So you brought up Kenny loggins a minute ago on a scale from loggins to McDonald rate how annoyed to delighted the yacht rockers are by the genre that you guys invented for them. And also I want to know a Daryl Hall's data's but let's let's. PUT The scale from loggins to McDonald's Michael seems delighted the low actually the low part of the scale is by skaggs bus gags is super annoyed that he's called Ruckus. He didn't like to be pigeonholed man really yeah. He he does like to be grouped in with those artists like steely Dan and whatnot, but he doesn't like the like I think. A lot of steely Dan fans we get this from two. They don't like to be associated with the as an aside like they were doing briefly when I posted the show and was on social media the steely Dan fans were the ones who had the greatest objection to steely Dan even being included in this year by false, they wanted to lift them out. They are really steely Dan fans because if they were, they would have seen Michael McDonald toto they all played with steely Dan. There is a universe begins it's rooted in steely Dan dig dogs. Yeah and. Disavow themselves from Christopher. Cross but that whole Christopher Cross album was produced by Michael Omari who played on a bunch of steely Dan songs there's a direct line. The reason Michael McDonald is on Christopher crosses because of Oh Mardian who knew him from steely Dan? It's not hard to draw those lines. I've told this story before but my wife worked on a television show that was filming right next to American idol and Kenny loggins was there and came out afterwards and was talking to people and taking photos and my wife went up to him and said, hey my husband played coco in yacht rock and Kenny stop smiling and just looked at her and said. Oh Not Hey not cool. Just not go screw yourself just. Oh. and that was it luckily, the photo I so I think that's good evidence that Kenny loggins is kind of in the middle of the reaction scale. And then okay. But Michael McDonald would probably be the top of the scale. I. Pulled One interview where he was delighted. But there was more than one where he's pretty delighted. Love. What did you think at first I thought it was. When I first saw it was you know It was almost uncanny. For not knowing any of us, you mean, the video series, they actually originated. It was it was pretty pretty fund these poor guys. I feel sorry for because it can't have an interview now without somebody bringing up are stupid web show. Yeah McDonalds said something really funny. He said he thought that were funny. But he also said they really hit on something kind of like when you get a letter from a stalker and you don't know how they knew all that high hyper which I thought was a great compliment. Yeah I. The toto guys seem pretty positive about it. I think Luther. Thought it was funny and. Steve Kerr was flabbergasted that he was a main character in a in a web episode I. Also think the Todo guys have an incredible sense of humor and they're always screwing around and making each other laugh. So I think they also have a sense of irony right I mean just the way they talk about Africa the fact that they are flabbergasted that this is their biggest hits that they hadn't been when they wrote it or. I mean, that should be clear in the lyrics but. Boy. Are you guys proud annoyed exhausted by this thing that you created I mean you did. All. Right. Absolutely. So what's the status of the future of yacht rock for you guys I hear you're working on a couple of things like possibly some follow up podcast to beyond yacht rock and I think you have a book project that you're working on yes, we do. We're going to announce that publicly for the first time. to people beyond our media social circles We signed a book deal with. Little Brown UK Steve Luther Book agent came up to us one of our live events. It was like you guys do book and really and then we're like me we should. So we did a proposal and he editor wanted to buy it, and so we have So now we're writing like the ultimate like. End All be all book on Yacht Rock So we know a ton more than we did just six months ago we've been deep into research and learning so much and luckily all the research were doing is only reinforcing our theory about what yacht rock is like we have now Dan. Wrong. This is a real thing. You can definitely telling narrative of how the genre came to be and these people's careers and how they shape the sound and push the sound We're starting to learn who really did push the sound and who didn't. Like Michael McDonald. Kenny loggins deftly pushing the sound boss Gags, Christopher Cross not so much. They have other people to think for for for Yeah. Becoming you know getting that the yacht rock sound. So yeah, we're working on the book and. We hope to teach the world a lot as we've been learning a lot. Yeah I believe I believe it's tentatively scheduled to come out spring of twenty twenty one I have nothing more specific than that. You know there's a pandemic the world is on fire. We don't know exactly the details yet but and we're also trying to get a new podcast off the ground, but it's still taking shape and we're figuring out how to how to do it from our own homes which this is a great. What we're doing now is a great tutorial. Yeah. The we're. Going to do new podcast devoted entirely out rock. So we can continue the yacht ski scale, and we can we can sort of have some more fun with all this knowledge that were sucking up into our brains. But for now, it's kind of taking a back seat to actually writing right you gotta get the book done writing hard work on. That's why not a lot of people do it. It's really hard work. Yeah. Tell me about it. Well, all of this news is making my heart's or as a fan of beyond yacht rock as a fan of the music. The thought of the book coming makes me happy the fact that you're revealing it on my podcast. I find very flattering and the fact that the scale will live on. That is amazing news so. Guys thank you so much for joining us here for the bridge. I'm excited for everything in the meantime. What's the best way for folks to get in touch with you? You guys all tweet, right? Yeah. We're all We're all on twitter at JD is Nar I'm at David underscore be underscore lions at Hollywood Steve H. I had to put my last initial on there because everytime I adopted new platform people have already taken Hollywood Steve shouldn't have had such a catchy name you can also follow. At yacht rock luckily, WE DO HAVE A. Twitter Account. Yeah, we did get that well, guys thanks so much for being on the bridge. Thank you. Thank you for having us in in response to your earlier question I'm not sure what Daryl Hall's deal is. Now comes the time in hit parade the bridge where we do some Trivia and joining us on the line from Pelham New York. Is Rachel Rachel? Are you there I? I am thanks for having me. Sure thing. So I understand that before we got on the mic here you had some guesses as to what my next topic might be. Since we haven't done the trivia questions yet I suppose you could fire some guesses that me if you WANNA. Sure. Yeah. I've been waiting and anticipating a grunge episode for awhile interesting. Also a boy band episode ever since you did the Swedish pop music which was very female happiest. I wondered when we'd get the boy band pop side. and. Then I also wonder if you're going to do a Cardi B. EPISODE While it's interesting that last one I don't have a Cardi B. Plant quite yet but I have Cardi B. on the brain because I wrote about her new number one hit for wise the song number one just this week. So I was kind of immersed in the world of Cardi B. I think she's trying to make a last-minute bed for your song of the summer. You should very last minute but man, she really came slamming in there so her and make the stallion go crazy. In any case, I'll tell you this much none of those three topics. All good by the way are the next topic. So you haven't spoiled yourself on the Trivia questions I'm about to ask you but they're very good candidates and let's just say that at least one or two of those of being in the hopper for potential future episode. So all right now. Yeah. Yeah. Stuff's coming down the Pike but for now. We're going to do our usual trivia round. First of all I'd like to say thank you as I always do for being a slate plus subscriber because as you know, we only open our trivia, round slate plus members, and all of you if you'd like to be a trivia contestant, please visit slate dot com slash hit parade sign up that's slate dot com slash hit parade sign up, and of course Rachel you know how this works we're going to ask you three questions. The first is a callback to our most recent episode of Hip Parade and the next two are going to be a preview of our forthcoming episode of Hip Parade All right here we go question one. In last month's episode, I played a Yadi hit by toto that did better on billboard's hot soul singles chart than it did on the hot one hundred. What was it a hold the line be Georgy Porgy see ninety, nine or D Roseanna. Well I know Rosanna went to number two. So I doubt it could have done better on RND. And GonNa have to guess. Georgy Porgy. That is absolutely correct. The correct answer is B.j Orgy Porgy and as you said with vocals by rising NBC singer Sheryl Lynn this toto single peaked at number eighteen on the soul chart and only number forty eight on the pop chart. Excellent great memory. Your one for one here comes the preview trivia ready for some preview trivia. Yeah. My sided. Here we go. Question to what? Nineteen, Eighty, eight number one hit one record and song of the year at the nineteen eighty-nine Grammy Awards and then the artist had never had a hot one hundred hit again. A Rick Ashley Never GonNa give you up be the Escape Club wild. Wild West C will to power baby I. Love Your Way Free Bird Medley or D. Bobby mcferrin don't worry be happy. That's tough and I love when I hit wondering. Wild Wild West by the club is so good that I wanNA ticket but I do know that Bobby mcferrin that song wasn't. Really well, I'm going go to the. Ivy mcferrin to worry be happy. That is correct. The correct answer is don't worry be happy the unique jazz vocalist, bobby mcferrin who performed unaccompanied mostly Acapella was a pure one hit wonder on the hot one hundred by the way, all of the one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, eight chart toppers I asked about in that question all of those artists scored at least one other top ten hit and Rick Ashley scored four more go A. Be Happy all right. You are running the table. Are you ready for question three? I'm already learn what else escape club did that I can't take off but yes, I'm definitely ready. All right. Here we go. Question Three speaking of one hit wonders which of these artists qualifies for that term having scored a single smash and never returning to the hot one hundred, a Nina Ninety, nine, lift balloons be vanilla ice ice ice baby see men without hats the safety dance or D. Billy Ray Cyrus Achey breaky heart why definitely not think it can be billy ray Cyrus isn't the remix of old, town? Road. I don't even know anything about country data side. I think. I don't really know but I'm going to stop with men without hats. I'm sorry. The correct answer was a Nayna. Snow. The German bands Nineteen eighty-four number two hit ninety nine looked balloons or in English red balloons was their only single to crack the hot one hundred by the way their follow up. Justin, Green. bubbled under the chart at number one, hundred to. Uh. So close, you're absolutely right about billy ray Cyrus in town road that was the obvious answer you can throw out. I. Understand. You have a question for me where you are going to turn the tables on me I did. With Cardi, B., on the brain and my hope for a cardi B. Episodes, anyway, it's a question for you. Here it if. Heartbeat just became the first female rapper to have four billboard number one hits. She's also the only female rapper to win the Grammy for best rap. Album What to rap acts that our fellow winners of the best rap album grammy. Exact, same amount of number one hits as Cardi B. in their careers thus far. Is it a macklemore and Ryan Louison and Kendrick Lamar. Be Jay Z and Kanye West See. Low Wayne. An outcast. Or D. Ludicrous and Puff Daddy. Amazing question. So I'm basically looking for. Wrapped acts with four hot one, hundred number one. So they hear that right yet and they've also won the grammy for best rap album. I know I can eliminate a because I'm pretty sure macklemore Ryan Lewis. And Kendrick. Lamar, I've only had. Like one or two hit number one hits a piece I guess to appease come to think of it because Kendrick was on the Taylor Swift remix I'm pretty sure little Wayne has been the number one. He'd be three times because of guest appearances as well as lollipop his own hit. The answer's probably gotta be be. Jay Z and Kanye West. That's my guess. You are correct. It didn't be Jay Z and Kanye West. As he won the grammy for best rap album in nineteen ninety, he's had four number ones all with women actually. Ninety nine Mariah Carey Collaboration heartbreak. As two thousand, three. Crazy love. When he celebrated with Riana for umbrella in two thousand. And two, thousand nine empire. State of. Mind with. Only. One where he's the leader interestingly of. That's right. No you're. Honey as also he's one of the grammy. and His. Chart covered on digger stronger and his featured roles on. and. You are correct Michelmore and Ryan list as well as Kendrick. Lamar have two number ones each. You're spot on with low weight as well with three outcast as you probably figure since we recently we recently covered outcast on hip parade. They have three number ones Miss Jackson and in the back to back hits Hey, and the way move right Puffy and ludicrous each have five number ones so. That's GONNA be Cardi. B. Is next hurdle to go over Yeah Rachel. That was an excellent question. You really may be swept for that one I was really struggling. But I enjoyed it tremendously and I you got two out of three yourself so nice job and thank you for being on Hip Hooray the bridge. Thank you so much for having me. So. As those last two trivia, questions indicated our next parade episode coming in September will be about one hit wonders. Now, this is a very calm term. It's a term used by people who don't even follow the trucks but if you are a chart fall, what does one hit wonder me I mean at the data will half the short people. So when does an artist escape the one hit wonder tag when they score another hot one hundred Top forty hits. What about if they score a second immediate hip but then never returned are they still a one hit wonder? And what about rock legends? Like he's Jimi Hendrix a one hit wonder are the grateful dead one hit. I'm going to propose some rules to determine. As a one hit wonder and if you thought yacht rock was into being turn way till we tackle this. So look for our one hit wonders episode of Hip Breed coming to your pod catcher in September. This episode of Hip Parade the bridge was produced by Auto Saluda to sign up for sleep plus to support our show head over to slate dot com slash hit parade plus and I'm Chris Murphy keep on marching over one.

Episode 3: The Birth of American Music

"Many Times magazine I'm Nicole Hannah Jones. This is sixteen nineteen this week Wesley Morris on the birth of American music. Uh Uh so last fall I am at my friend's house. We are making dinner. You're chopping vegetables and I asked my friend Brett who was cooking with me. Can you put on some music and he said where do you want to listen to and I said have you ever heard of Yada Rock and he said what I said yacht rock have you ever heard of this and he goes no. I have nut so he finds the Rock Station and Pandora which I don't know why or how he's still a Pandora guy with all due respect to Pandora Laura he is one and he finds the Rock Station at some point bright has to go run an air and I think I might have sent him on one. I don't remember member but he's gone. I'm alone just me with the vegetables and it gives me plenty of time to really think about the songs I'm here. We're talking about music made between the years of I don't know I would say like nineteen seventy five to about one thousand nine hundred three three things like the speed aces how long serving the seals and Croft doing summer breeze. I'm hearing things steal away by Robbie Pres and the Doobie brothers what a full believes it is like our soft rock is period in American popular music. The joke of Iraq is that whoever invented it whoever's making a playlist out of these songs is basically saying that they're inconsequential and that what's in them doesn't matter what I know. I'm hearing is something bigger and deeper than that. Every song has some thing about it that is similar to the other songs wall in the morning and I'm hearing things like Rosanna by toto which seems perfectly canal is a really good beat sort of bills do its chorus. Then at the end. I'm hearing the great eight do harmonies of the fifties and sixties there is something jazz like in the syncopated music of lakes feely early. Dan You can hear at somebody like Michael McDonald. that is like a Gospel breakdown down when I am hearing in all of these songs is basically blackness and the song in which I am hearing the deepest in strongest and most powerfully at least to me standing in that kitchen sharpen those vegetables was when Kenny loggins this is it comes towns in one. It's got a kind of loosely disco like uh-huh rhythm to it. There's a lot of percussion sort of going back and forth and around sure Kenny loggins is basically saying whispering versus saw as try doing this very light coon essay in the pre chorus. Kenny loggins disappears and who shows up Michael McDonald breath giving Kenny loggins plenty of time to gather himself it when he sings the word miracle. He doesn't sing miracle he goes. He is scraping scraping the bottom of a pan to get all the good bits off of it before you pour the revient around scraping the Pan is the blackest thing you can do a senior in here's Kenny loggins as this white artist doing it and then the gravy comes at the top of the church at this point. He is like elevated himself to the rafters. No more he is like at the roof trying into clear a way to get to heaven but there's just church ruth in the way he's not the greasier but there's a kind of gumption nerve to the singing of the song cannot be a tip of the hat to him. I just had to stand here and there and I just I. I actually cracked up. I had I just put down the knife and I- cracked up and it felt so pleasurable and the thing about all these other singers words. I'm thinking about any White House Dean about any links to carry George Michael Van Dan. I think about Chris Stapleton Barroom you practices is a kind of muscle blues that gets written off his country because he's a big white guy and a hat and one of the many phases in which David Bowie really wanted to make aren be in soul music America. This is the sound not just black America but the sound of America it is deeply American almost almost especially when it's sung by British people like David Bowie in any lennox naming wine house and it fills me with pride like I know aw that there's something irresistible and ultimately inevitable about black music being a part of American popular music but it also reminds me uh that there's a history to this a very painful history and in the most perversely ironic way it's this historical pain gene that is responsible for this music some some of the oldest reportings we have black American music from the nineteen thirties and their songs been sung by Americans born into slavery. There's this one called Old Shipping Zion. You can hear these four. Men Voices are moving in and out of each other sure it's beautiful and it's also sat they can feel in your boats and then there'd be music that was completely the opposite like old coon dog for instance Calvin. You can hear the playfulness fullness in this song. You've got this Banjo this great African instrument that becomes the bedrock of American music in so many anyways dancing then who will be turn Landon Cohen. You have someone like billy mccray connor blow. Oh my God down. Mr Here in his singing group we would now call something like the live long day. Kony blow in years of hard work an unimaginable sorrow home brew issue. He can also so here in all of this music a this undeniable sound. I hope own will all of these melodies and cadences ince's emotions are things that would have been passed down generation after generation. It's what you heard on a plantation. It's what you would have heard walking walking by a plantation. It's what you would have heard passing a black person doing his job entertaining himself doing the drudgery of work the way guy named Thomas Dartmouth Royston sometime around the eighteen thirties as the story goes rose. Td raise a white man. This anonymous new buddy actor trying to make ends meet one day. He's touring with a troop group in Cincinnati or maybe was Pittsburgh. We don't really know but the myth basically goes. T- raise happened upon an old black man cleaning a horse in a stable the man was doing his job on property owned by a white man named crow a you heard the tune. This all black man was singing. We saw the way. This man moved his bodies cleaning this horse download now. We don't know what toon man would have been singing out there. who would who we'll go whatever race here's coming out of this man's mouth is captivating to him and what he sees is an opportunity he can show this in the thirties looked like talion operas. British plays entertainment imported from Europe. All the people performing this stuff would have been white the audience would have been white after all eighteen thirty slavery is in full effect and when it came to entertainment there was nothing new nothing truly American containerized. Here's this black man singing this song moving his body in this particular way. Ding a light bulb goes off takes that light bulb and runs all the way to the theater. He figures out a way to melt down some cork. Let's cool presumably takes a rag or maybe even as handled schools enough and then he he paints his face. Black goes out on stage but instead of doing his regular act. He's got this horse groomers to accept now. He's given the tune lyrics commits and all you gals and boy. I'm guessing from Toko. I'm glad of being a little along my name's Jim Rome we labout and carrying about who air Tama wheel about Jim Jim. Oh and the lyrics give the groomer name and the name is Jim Crow so the crowd goes crazy. They go so bananas. The man gets twenty on chorus. This is the first time a paying paying audience is basically electrified by a white man with a black face. This is the night that Jim Crow was allegedly introduced to America Erica this mascot of American racism and this is what America really wanted which was its own original art form that is not an Italian alien opera. It isn't some British guy coming over in deaths being all over them and here is Thomas Dartmouth Rice giving it to them This is the night that American popular culture was born. to kill a mockingbird is the most successful American play in Broadway history says sixty minutes rolling stone gives it five stars ars calling it a landmark production of American classic to kill a Mockingbird is all rise one of the greatest place in history raves. NPR The New York Post says it will change how you see the world. This is what great feeders for all rise for her police to kill a mockingbird a new play by Aaron Sorkin. This is a phenomenon says New York magazine on Broadway at the Shubert Uber Theater. GET TICKETS AT TELECHARGE DOT COM auto mall him on boy. You know how it goes. The sensational thing happens and then everybody wants to get on the bandwagon and do their own so you have other minstrel acts who come along and try to do with Thomas Dartmouth Rice's doing a song and dance and a black doc fees on their white skin and then from these solo acts. You have basically bands for me to end the band have all the instruments that you would have in the band that you'd recognize now. There's a Banjo and a fiddle and some tambourines and percussion in the form of bones which would come from a pig. Sometimes that is the formation of what will become the minstrel troupe aw and the place that menstrual see took hold was in the north places like Philadelphia and New York and Boston where you'd have these theaters dedicated to minstrel acts where mental acts would just move into a theater in do their act night after night after night after night and a lot of these performance never been meaningfully south to having meaningful relationship with black people and so they just made stuff up based on what they thought all black people were like do you people why they were able the draw things that were coming from other parts of Europe like the Pogo Aw Alan Ganda Rounding Close and so you had over the course of the formation formation of this culture and inherent makes you had some amusing mix of an imagined blackness real actual Irish melodies and Polish music with what we would now call Gospel but spiritual spiritual harmonies interlaced together with this African Banjo basically welding into a fusion that becomes the thing that everybody wants to try to do the whole thing sweeps a nation and for the rest of the nineteenth century. This is the shit. Can we say that very much. Thanks for the rest of the nineteenth century. This is the shit this is America's. Primary form of entertainment. People are going crazy for black bass minstrels you have the little boy is going to bed dreaming about how they can become part of the Spin Straw show some of those people having these dreams go onto become people like Stephen Foster it came from and even foster the man widely credited as is being the father of American music some of his songs some of his most famous songs. You know old songs. You love songs. You still sing songs your children if you have them day still sing some songs written for blackface performers campau native and if you listen to something like camp down races you can hear in it. All of its minstrel properties brings back on the song of course is written in so-called Negro dial instead of saying go when you're saying wine like instead of saying. Oh F- for of you get a lot of D. E. For Take my whole this is a white person imagining how a black person would sing the song and that was the gold rush era a hip. I WanNa hold your hand of eighteen fifty. One part of the problem uh-huh that we still live with now is that it was so much the heart and soul of American culture that it wasn't that it became I'm not racist. It just was thing that you did if you wanted to be an entertainer at any point after eighteen thirty you in all likelihood hood were going to try to be a black face minstrel. Even if you were black the after the civil war ends and there's an opportunity for black people to perform they have to do what the nation wants and what the nation wants at that point is black face and now giving you noise in temple. FBI Miller and Scott Man so so black people blacked up and performed as black people who weren't actually bless the you you leave this man. I have this wrong unco what's wrong with you. Chai by the time you you have black people painting their faces black to perform as black people. The only question you can really ask at this point is what the hell is going on on. Why is this happening so captivating about seeing black people represented this way. Why would a white audience clamored for it so much. I think thank one of the things that it offered was an opportunity to feel good about a thing. That actually felt really bad at the time. People are really torn about whether to continue. Can you with slavery or whether abolish it. The Mitchell show didn't really give you an answer but it provided a platform by which you could either escape from actually having to think about that question that really was tearing the nation apart or depending on which show you a wind up seeing it fully engaged you in the lightest possible possible way about enslaved people and how you didn't really have to feel so bad for them because they like being enslaved. You got to laugh at a thing that you actually actually felt so anguished about you. Get to watch these black people who are really a source of national agony outside the theater become fools inside the theater an sitting in that theater watching these white men in black face make fools of black people a wide audience could feel culture. They could feel L. civilized. They could feel superior to the people they were watching be made fun of in a crazy way watching humanize what really have been an opportunity for a white audience to feel so much better about their own humanity and by the time you get to the Twentieth Century Mental C- still with us it is the basis upon which American movies are built this country's first movie blockbuster he w Griffith's the birth of a nation full of white men villainously honestly and buckets. I am do they of your word. The U N America's first talking motion picture in modern and novel matter the jazz singer about a Jewish man who feels most himself not a Jewish man struggling with his Jewish identity and pleasing his kantor father no now I hope it's when he blacks his face up and performs manny as a Negro. Ah Nah a some of America's favorite stars did numbers numbers in black face trump sound from deep deep South Judy garland performed in black face an Apache. It means inspire within Alabama Manley blaze bridge all night way swinging bing crosby in Fred astaire both performed in black face. I Ran Stroh Shaw shoreline way. Christmas has a whole all member most famous number way. Christmas involves a black based on this it but at the same time there's the beginnings of recording industry and you we had black artists who had access to recording studio out of these recordings. You have people like muddy waters L. Let me ask paying inventing and Perfecting Blues Rhythm Blues Ideas Blues expression the expression of Aww of a fully human black self in American popular arts tune in to kind of confidence that most people would never have heard coming from a black person before and this is just the beginning you have the advent of a place like blue records where lots of amazing jazz was created and then released into the world people like Sydney and then we Armstrong Duke Ellington you've black musicians thinking about how to move not only music forward but American culture forward thinking about how these instruments can do other things besides make what we think of as Western European classical music taking music to a place that nobody had ever tried to previously take it people who just kept pushing it forward and Beyond and then you have the development of the single most important movement black people have ever had artistically and that is the advent of motown records motown is the most powerful mass-produced expression of black glamour of black self-confidence of Black self-reliance it took its project was to you get black producers black musicians black singers to take quote white quote Western musical ideas of orchestration strings and ornes this magic moment in straightforward harmonies so and you marry them to a black weekend where on Saturday netted Juke joint having a good time with rhythm and Blues Music Guitar Drums Bass Sex basically and then you go home slightly hungover and you wake up and you go to church on Sunday morning. The arena where there's a whole other musical experience involving hand claps the different harmonic arrangements and call and response a lot of feeling a lot of a lot of gratitude. You have the combination of these three different areas of musical expression happening at the same time in just about every single motown records whether it's the four tops ops doing reach out. I'll be there or Martha and the bengals doing heatwave on something heat wave you can hear hands slapping the tambourine like it actually is this Sunday morning then when everything is firing it's just the most exciting romantic sound you're ever going to hear and at the center of it is what can only be described as refrigerant tasteful blackness have in Motown of force that is actively fleet combating these ideas of black people as being inherently inferior motown is the antidote to American American minstrel see but these dot K and this is what I was thinking about standing there in that kitchen chopping those vegetables. It's the thing that made me laugh. Half was just how all that history is just very silently coursing through this music. It might even be aware that it's even there. It's so thoroughly atomised into American culture. It's GONNA show up in a way that even people making the art can't quite put their finger on what you're hearing agreeing in black music. That's so appealing to so. Many people of all races across time is possibility struggle. Duggal strife. It is humor. It is sex it is confidence and that's ironic because this is the sound of a people who for decades and centuries have been denied freedom and yet what you respond to in black music. Nick is the ultimate expression of a belief in that freedom the belief that the struggle is worth it the pain begets joy and and that that joy you're experiencing is not only contagious. It's necessary and urgent an irresistible. Black Susic is American music because as Americans we say we believe in freedom and that's what we tell the world and the power of black music is that it's the ultimate expression of that belief an American Freedom to kill a mockingbird has not played played to a single empty-seat report sixty minutes.

It's body aches and fever, and coughing up small, throw pillows and I mean, and it's been a month, and it doesn't seem to be letting up and I. I went to the doctors, and he said Yeah, you in nine hundred hundred thousand other people avid, so there's nothing they can do for it, so just wash your hands. People wash your hands I'll watch my microphone when we're done with it. Flea and the safe side, please now you've been doing. Stand up comedy for about a good thirty years dry. Forty years I started in nineteen, seventy one when there was one comedy club in the United States. And that was the comedy store. The IMPROV had been in new city, but it was basically a club where the kids from Broadway came after the show may got up and saying and danced, and some people did comedy, but it wasn't an exclusive comedy club. The way the comedy store was it wasn't until the comedy store opened that the Improv switched over to all comedy all the time and Mitzi schorr created an industry that remains to this day. I mean every club you go to. In the United States today. He's based on the structure of Mitzi shorts, clubs and I was right there on the ground floor I walked into the commissary, one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, one I, was an assistant buyer and budget ladies handbags in the May Company in Los Angeles, and I had five minutes worth of material that I had done to my friends in college, and I lived in an apartment building and Rubin. Who was on the Partridge Family Dave Madden heard me making people laugh sitting around the pool, and he pulled me aside, and he said to me you could do this professionally. And I'M GONNA. Take you up to the comedy store and Dave Madden and Albert hand took me up to the comedy store. I sat in the audience I said Oh I could do that. I've been doing this for years and the next week I came back with my five minutes and Sammy Shore. Who was you know? The owner of the club at the time pulled me aside, and he said You keep coming back. Kid, you keep coming back. You have the sound the sound and Comedians have a specific sound. It's timing. It's clear it's clearness of of pudge joins and Sammy told me I had and quite. Frankly if Sammy hadn't come up to me and said that that night I. Woulda Gone Home and gone back to the May company and never come back again. Played in front of an audience. Oh, it was like I always in there. You know I was in my living room. Telling people joke. It was an exciting time because Barry Levinson hung out there Craig. T Nelson hung out. There I've flipped Wilson Red Foxx Steve Landes Berg. Jay Leno David Letterman Elaine Booze ller I mean it was the Creme de la Creme of comedy scene at that time, and you have to realize that that time period there must have been fifty comedians today. There are fifty thousand. My housekeeper can do twenty minutes. So everyone's doing comedy today. Pat Proft towards their pat, who wrote all the sucker films you know airplane, Naked Gun, naked gun, two and a half all those films pat was there and was part of the comedy store players Pat, and I used to say at at that time. You know we should be writing this down. We should be documenting this and then we went. No one's GONNA care. We were right. We should have no in wrote it down. And then someone came out with a book called. I'm dying up here who he interviewed all the comedian, but he almost got it right, but he didn't quite get it right. He needed to structure a story with a beginning middle and end and life doesn't have a beginning a middle and an end, so he needed to pull elements together create a story. and. Then there was a TV series which I watched one episode of got completely nauseous and couldn't watch it again. I think it was also called I'm dying up here. because. It was nothing like what it was like. Now for the audience they loved you know. They loved it because they didn't know for those of us who lived at? It was a completely different story. You had to deal with touring and you know getting more exposure. Well touring didn't happen until after we got discovered. I mean I went from the comedy store to the Sugihara's in Lake Tahoe in twenty four hours. I was I got a phone call from my agent. They said you're opening. For Kenny loggins tomorrow night in Lake Tahoe and that's it was like that fast for me, and then I continue to work for years after being the opening act for Donna Summer Barry Manilow Melissa Manchester Kenny loggins Frankie Valley Frankie, avalon seals in crops tower power I mean I worked continuously until the comedy club circuit called, and then I toured as a headliner in the comedy club circuit for years until I couldn't stand it anymore in that. Also one of the founding members of the groundlings again the whole industry is very incestuous and the car I mentioned the comedy store players well. The original four comedy store players were Gary, Austin Valerie Curtain Archie Hahn and Pat Proft, and that night that I went to the comedy story that night. I approached Valerie and I. said you know. I'm new to this. I there in the you know of any classes and she. She said to me Gary Starting a workshop. You should talk to him so I approached Gary and I said I'd like to join a workshop and I did and I learned all my improvisational techniques from Gary Austin in that workshop I learned all the tricks that I use on states today from Gary Austin that workshop became the groundlings and in my class. Was Cindy Williams and Lorraine Newman Teri Garr Andy Clark Harrison Ford. Ford we're they were all in this class that became the groundlings and Gary said you know I think we should do a show and I was in the first show. The groundlings ever put on I, think of the forty years I've been on stage the five minutes. I spent on stage with Archie, Hahn Valerie curtain and myself with like magic. It was like the three of US had one mind we were reading each. Each Other's mine and just interacting with each other, and it was hysterical, and it's one of my favorite memories of all the years of working, and I've worked quite a bit and I can imagine. I mean you've got all this talent and you're surrounded by a room full of talent to probably very easy feud about because when musicians who are very talented claim together Juba have interview or die in the middle of interview. Yeah it was well exactly right. Jack was in the class by Neil. I actually got to work with Jackson. I remember as a child seeing Jack. Sue and Flower Drum Song the movie, and and the thought that I was actually on the same level as Jack Soo was amazing to me. It was an amazing time, and it created an amazing institution. I'm going to blow my nose now, okay? I hope people are having dinner. One time in Las. Vegas I got a flu like this and it was opening for some Nah and I was so sick. I couldn't get out of bed and they sent a golf cart to my room and I got on the golf cart. They drove me to the stage I got off the stage and stood in front of the microphone. The curtain opened. I did my show. The curtain closed the golf card game back. Pick me up, took me back to my room, but in that particular show I was so sick. Sick. I said to the audience. Does anybody have any vicks? And this woman comes up, approaches the stage with the box of Vicks cough drops, and she hands it to me and I jump up on stage and I start I wanna hug her, but she doesn't want to get infected, so she's running away from me and it was, it was hilarious. It was hilarious. It was good times now all, but all of those hotels garden now the only place that I worked that's still there is the GM and Caesar's palace. Completely different. Comic in Vegas. Comic in New York. They have, but we call in Vegas. A commercial audience which means it's like a a an Oleo of of people of all different hines from all different places so that you have to hit I note that everyone can relate to, because everyone's from a different place in New York City. They're all dealing with the same things. The apartments too expensive in two small, the streets of dirty subways a crowd. You know what I'm saying, so you can touch on those objects. Get a bigger response. If you took that and put it in Vegas, you'd get a response, but not as big because the people in Ohio and Florida and Colorado. Don't know what you're talking about. More relatable in Vegas right so you can get. You need to fight more relatable material for the larger audiences, and conversely if you did the Vegas material in New York, it would lie flat because you know they don't know you know. They're not relatable to that. How much you writing back on that play into your role as a standup? Well in the beginning, I walked around with a pad of paper tape recorder at all. All Times writing much material as I could, but David, Brenner said to me I can't write at a desk. I write standing on my feet, and that really applied to me. I started writing new material on stage in front of a live audience I would go on stage with a note, it said vacuum cleaner, and then I would start talking to the audience and I would say I just got a new vacuum and telling. And the material would come from there, because under the pressure of needing to get a laugh, you become more creative. Ninety percent of my material is always written onstage I'd like my books and my place, which are methodically thought out and plotted and written and rewritten. I have one play. I think Britain now about twenty eight times being the comic I know where every lap should be on. There isn't one where I wanted to be I. Rewrite to make sure the laugh is there so you know? I was always told that writing is rewriting, and that's the truth. Then you said he running for TV tonight. You. You work as a writer on the Brady Bunch. Variety hour. A little bit go have to. My agent sent me up with this. They didn't tell me what it was. They just said. Go Up having interview. It's variety show, so I went up for the variety show, and I brought my videotape. I think I'd been on tonight. Show the MERV, Griffin show or Mike Douglas. You can have fun editing. And I brought the videotape and they they saw the tape Nick God. You're so funny and you WanNa right when yes, I would love to write and I said what show is this and car? Kleinschmidt, who was the head? Writer said it's the Brady bunch variety hour, and just as he said that a little tiny net flew in front of my face and I swiped at it and call thought I was doing the three stooges. Take and he laughed hysterically and he said you're hired. So I wrote the Brady Bunch Variety Hour with Bruce for lunch and Carey Heart Ronny Graham Call. Kleinschmidt, Mike Kagan. Blow Your Fast Kugler Mike is a great writer and a great guy love him. We were all stoned ninety percent of the time. And you know, and we're all writing. Hi, honey! I'm home. It was the most bizarre show Brunei shared an office. It was hilarious in the middle of the show. I walked in, and I said to the call Oh by the way I'm having my nose fixed on Friday and call. Call said Okay I probably won't be in on Monday, but I'll come in on Tuesday. He said all right fine. I had my nose fixed and I came in on Tuesday black and blue with a faith twice the size that it was a huge bandage, you know I didn't know what I was thinking, but across my forehead was his big bandage and I had written in black magic marker construction Florence Henderson for the next thirty years every time she would run into me. She would go under construction. She loved that and if you. Did you first movie they call me Bruce. Johnny Yune called me up and said would you play a Jewish gangster in my film? Johnny was an Ofra. You're starting out together, so you're all like a big family. You know we. We hung out every night for years together, so johnny called me up and said. Would you do the movie I went to court? I didn't even care what the part was. was or how much you paid, and they did the movie. They call me Bruce. The worst movie ever made in history of Phil so so so far I've written the Brady bunch variety hour, which was voted the fourth worst television series in the history of television, and I, said to Bruce for lunch. We're so unlucky. We can't even get the worth television show. We have to get the forth worth. So then you got two running plays in writing books. You know when I got off the road I've been on the road for so long and I just I can't I. couldn't stand it anymore. And the quality of the axe in these comedy clubs just went down and down and down when I started doing standup, I was proud to call myself a comedian, but by the time I got up the road, and like I said my cleaning woman could do ten minutes, and everybody was trying to do comedy because they wanted to get noticed, and nobody was really funny, and everybody's sounded alike, and they all talked about the same thing and I didn't want to be I didn't want to. To Be clumped into that category of comedian, so I got off the road and I decided to write and I wrote sitcoms and variety shows, and then when that phase of my career was over I started writing plays. I wrote seven plays seven or eight. I can't remember. Yeah. We traveled again. I had to travel when when the plays went into production I was on the road with them and my final because I'm really retired now. Because with this cold up, probably be dead by Thursday, I wrote two books memoir of a nobody and the latest book was called. Take my prostate, please. And I had been diagnosed with prostate, cancer, and as I was going through the process things. Things would happen to me. Only happened to me very strange. Funny things so I started documenting, and so I documented the diagnosis, the surgery, and the after the recovery and I ended up with a book that people who had prostate cancer, or were about to go through the surgery or thousands or lovers, people with prostate cancer could actually read and know what to expect, and it was very helpful, and that's the most gratifying thing to me is that people are laughing and they're learning and they're. They're learning that. The diagnosis is the the end comedy also comes out of a place of pain. Sometimes, you don't really hear comics doing routines that how wonderful their life is usually some sort of. Of Suffering and I guess with your background and your experience as a comic in knowing about timing and how to write if I believe fell together for you pretty naturally. I'm guessing well. Yeah, I mean I just see things differently. You know I. I believe there are two types of comedians. There's intrinsically funny comic who sees life a little differently than everyone else. And then there's the technician who has learned that if he says seven words in a row and stopped stocking the audience will laugh David Brenner who was a friend. One of those intrinsically funny Comedians David was walking down the street in New York City a man hold blew up in twenty five feet up into the air. David looked and went heads. That's an intrinsically funny person. So. I'm an intrinsically funny. You can't tell today because I'm dying I'm an intrinsically funny person, and I see life differently than other people for instance, I was coming back from the doctors and the tire light on my car went on I started looking for air pump and I went to like five different gas stations, and no one had an air pump and I said to myself. They have a mini mart at this gas station. You could cater Thanksgiving for twelve people in this many mart by. You can't get air for your tire. WHO DESIGNS A gas station and says I think at air pump is going to be too expensive to put in, but we need a slurpee machine. And that started a whole chapter in the Book Very Funny Chapter Memoir of a nobody's collection of a lot of short stories, all based on events in your life and I was skimming through it I was wondering. Could you relate the story of when you had still Harris? Seinfeld and her husband over to you house for dinner. A stealth had agreed to do a staged reading of one of my place called rest and decent and choose a truly a lovely person. You know she's not like an actress. She's like you know your your Jewish mother and so I wanted to thank her so i. I invited her over to my house for dinner. And it was just one thing after another starting with I dropped a five pound bag of rice on the floor, and my dogs came running the kitchen, and they were fighting me for the rights, and and then I put the meat in the Crock Pot and laughed I. Forgot to turn it on, so I came home. The meat wasn't cooked, and so I played it in the oven and then his style came. I didn't put the timer on right. So by the time we'd finished talking I opened the oven and there a Choco briquet. In the oven, and then the dogs came out and started circling the dining room table, and they started fighting from the rice and style. was you know kept saying it smells like your couch died in here, and it was just one thing after another, and it ended when suddenly a platter in the kitchen fell off the shelf and smashed into a million pieces on the floor and she said. Is that may said the dishes. They're committing suicide. And we laughed and you know it was a hell of a night. It's a very funny story I'm not doing it justice, because it's too long story to get all the details out of the interview. You have to buy the book and read it. There are a lot of stories in that book of with with celebrities. Just on things that happened in your everyday life. As well I've noticed right I like I. said I, open for all these people and they're always. I. Wanted Tell the backstage stories. Not the ones at the see on stage like Kenny. loggins calls me up and says you. WanNa go for a steam and I said sure he said everybody in the band is going on. On with gunned down the steam rope, so I go down to the room, and there's Kenny loggins, and the whole band, completely stark, naked and i. you know we're shorts. When I shower I'm so modest and I had to get undressed in front of all these with a wash cloth and I. can't and I'm sitting going. I believe in sitting here naked with Kenny loggins. That's the kind of stuff that's in the book that the May Not Sound Finding out but written. It's really funny. Put it into a little bit better context, yeah! Your new one take my prostate. Please came out in October of last year. Right and like you said it's really been a good coping tools. Are you feeling better now or kings are coming along I? Mean I'm I'm fine. That sulfide knock wood All the tests are negative, so everything's good that the thing with prostate cancer is early detection. You get it early. It's very survivable and I was very lucky guy very early the thing about the book. Book is that my doctor read it. He said it's the best tool that he's read about the experience of having prostate cancer, and so he was gonNA give his copies to patients, which I thought was great. You know I really thought that was great. Of course, the books are available and Amazon. They're published by bear manor media, which is a publisher that my agent found for me and there their on Amazon. They're on Ibook e-book notebook kindle barnes. Barnes and noble if you got Amazon, you just put my name in and you can. You'll find the book well. We can do on the show now. Putting links to both books for people who WanNa. Check them out That would be great. That would rick. Yeah, you said you're retired. I am retired. I sold my house in Los Angeles and I moved to the desert where Osho show. Business goes to die and I've never been so happy in. In, my life I found this magnificent home. It's four thousand square feet with a guest house and a swimming pool and a three car garage. It's it's within my friends. Call it the SPA I. I'm just so happy here. There's no traffic and I said you go to the post office out in three minutes. It's not like in La when you go to the post office. You have to map out your afternoon. You had this obviously incredible career and. Accomplishments under your belt. When you look back, you wanted people to know about you. What would you want them to be the first thing that they should know? Oh, that's a great question. They should know that I was there from day one with the comedy store at the beginning of the comedy era I was one of the original ones, and that I worked and contributed, and I think I'm most proud of my play rest in pieces. We as had three productions already. It's very close to my heart. It's almost autobiographical. It gets rave reviews wherever produced also that I care about my friends terribly and I try to help as many people as I possibly can. With your book, take my prostate believe that will be helping a lot of people and people that you never even knew I in that. That's really rewarding to me. The book is called Memoir of a nobody, but I would have to disagree with that. He added somebody. He's definitely made his mark in the world of comedy, and writing as well and check out that book on Amazon along with. Take my prostate, please. His name is Steve Blue Tanti.

Weekend: Tarantino's Hollywood of 1969; Michael McDonald's voice; RIP NOLA legends and more

"Michael McDonald's voice is perhaps one of the most recognizable in pop music could be due to his hits with the Doobie brothers could also be related to the hip hop artist who sample his records but frame producer Jonathan Shift let has another theory aimed since the mid nineteen seventies MacDonald has performed background vocals on hundreds of recordings by other artists see if you recognize him in this bit from steely Dan movie talk to you hello. This is Michael McDonald. You know that was a kind of an elite group in L._A.. Area that I really always felt very proud to be a part of I got to single awesome pretty great singers Howard you James Ingram Luther Vandross Michael Jackson and I always kind of felt like that was a real feather in my cap to be able to step up to the Mike with those guys and it was also great way for me to get get in the studio in here stuff before it was actually released. It's Kinda like being a fly on the wall background singer back. That's how I got the job of student Davos up working at casuals with some of the guys who were actually playing rhythm section on records and <hes> and singing backgrounds for those guys selling. Another records that they were doing I did Kinda get used to hearing me sing with myself and I realized that there's something to that when the same singers Zinger sings all the parts. There's a certain psych sibling harmony. You're you're probably tighter with yourself in anyone else on the planet it's going to be you know which is what Donald and Walter did with me for the steely Dan track bad sneakers curse you suddenly realize that's kind of sound that you probably wouldn't get any other way but to use the same person singing all the parts and then doubling all the parts so that was really one of the first times I became keenly aware of that sound which some people bowl think of as the Michael McConnell background sound but then on subsequent records toward people were saying well. How did you get that sound? I could say well you know I I did all the parts of myself and double them go. Let's do that we can talk about all those recordings that you run for a long time but I just wanted to fast forward a little bit to some of the more recent collaborations that you've donald sure sounds like grizzly bear to me yeah very unique band grizzly. Grizzly bear <hes> and I I really came out of the blue they contacted me and I had not heard the van but they sent me a track and it just was so fresh and different end is seemingly abandoned was is really trying to exercise a certain kind of musicality Abner Amanda Schone Swim <hes> just did that record not that long ago seemingly <hes> House and Santa Barbara where they had kind of camped set up camp in Amanda her mom was Donna Summer and I met Amanda which is about ten years old is first time matter and all these years later singing on record twitter as my friend Steve Brunner Aka under a great experience. I have to give credit to Kenny loggins on that. One Kenny's <UNK> SON had heard Steve in an interview kind of mentioned myself and Kenny is a couple of his influences. His son you know was a big fan of thunder cat as was my daughter at the time and so his son contacted Kenny. Kennedy and dad you gotTa call this guy and maybe write something with them. You know so Kenny kind of reached out to Steve Steve got back to us and we all got together studio in Ojai California and listened to a bunch of music together together which was great fun and then we decided to write that tuned together <hes> something Steve had already started and so we added are two cents in <hes> Steve went and mixed in general question. What are you looking for? If anything in these kinds of collaborations I think just a chance to find something that strikes match for army and I I look in every direction for that. You know not just new artists in new collaborations with contemporary artists. I still look to the past for a lot of my inspiration laid on the bus last night my headphones on listening losing two hours of Curtis Mayfield. He's just you know some of those groups are just so infectious and so wonderful in his lyrics of course just so stream of consciousness and so poignant you know much like the guys he's like Steve Brunner Anderson and Kendrick Lamar those guys of today they're just kind of breaking new ground and he was definitely unique voice for Modern Soul Patrick one or two Michael McDonald performs at the Hollywood bowl on July thirty first and that's it for this week. The frame is produced by the mighty team of Oscar Garza Darby Maloney Jonathan Shiffling Julia.

Staying Connected: How to Communicate Well as a Couple

"The. Welcome to the family bootes podcast where we believe even closer relationships are closer than we. Pray real fast and we'll get started. God we love you and we're so thankful. For the opportunity to get together. And I am not sure that everybody's going through, but I can I've seen him with both these groups over the last several weeks that body language is changing God so I pray that you'll just continue to be our strength. That even though that we are distant you know in car spaces concern, these opportunities helpless connect on the best way we can. We pray for our conversations today that it will breathe life into our relationship, not only with our spouse in our family, but also with you. So God be with us. as we continue to. Learn, how to connect and stay connected with you? And those that we love in Christ, we pray Amen. As we? Get started. I want you to start thinking about how you and your family or going to respond as the. As as of our lockdown or a stay at home orders again to be lifted. Because I believe that although there's a lot of changing things that have come from this and damage from our experience of the last eight weeks, there's probably a few things that you might WanNa keep into your daily rhythms, or even your weekly rhythms, and so I'm GonNa ask that you start talking with your spouse, okay? What are some things that we wanna keep what we learned as a result of our experience here from a family game night, maybe to a conversation that you and your spouse might be having on a weekly or even daily basis because the last thing that I hope will happen for all of us including my family. Is that we will rush back to the dizziness of normal. At the expense of some of these blessing that we've received during this time. And so as the phases began to open in our county, I would love for you all to start that conversation of. How will I look for you when things get back to? They were the way they were whenever that might be. And then are we going to do to create opportunities for us to connect in the way that we had over this time? And one of the ways that we do that is often a communication. And it doesn't take a marriage pastor, a counselor or any kind of expert to realize communication is really buydell all of our relationships. And I want you to know a little secret. Poor communication is almost never. They keep problem in a marriage. When I meet with couples, one on one or I hear people talking about struggles in their relationship. Typically the thing they lead with is like we. We haven't problems communicate. But miscommunication or the lack of communication, they symptom of relationship troubles rather than a cause. What couples experiencing not elapsing communication, but a gap in connection. I WanNa say that again so important. When couples feel are not communicating. It's not a lapse in communication, rather a gap in the connection with their, spouse. No unfortunately get communication is not simply enough is not the only thing we need to stay in a healthy relationship. With, good communication, we can logically understand what the other person is saying to us, and we can pass the. Are you listening test? But with connection you know felt sense that my spouse is president with me and I am safe with them. and. I don't want to gloss over that because the difference between communicating meaning. I urge you. And connecting. Is that fell sent that my spouse is present with me. I am safe with them. This is more than simply echoing our partners words back to this sharing in their emotional and spiritual experience. But communication is the tool that the silicates, a growing and deeper connection. In this connection through feeling, known and understood by your spouse can create the environment for marriages to thrive rather simply surviving. So the first point I want to bring up in this devotional is communication helps. Couples feel known and understood. You get that communication. They tool that helps couples feel known and understood nothing. That's the point of marriage. Is that we? We want to be known on a different level in a more intimate way that other people get to know us. And we not only want to be accepted, but we want our spouse to get us it every significant relationship, even our relationship with God. That is a key to a healthy relationship to feel known and understood. That's when God sent Jesus. That's why God gave us his word. That's why Jesus one of his nicknames of God with us. He wants to be known for who he is, and he wants us to live with him and relationship. And the Bible teaches us this. That being known requires a person who is passionate about learning. Problems, one five says the wise person will listen and ask their learning. A person of understanding will acquire wise counsel. Let me, ask you a question. One show of hands okay, have you ever listen to a song on the radio? In the words were saying one thing only find out later. Those words were not bad at all. Whatever you thought was being sped or sung at. Okay I'M GONNA. Ask One person from our younger plants and one from our more mature class. Tell me a song that you thought was one thing only to find out something later on news row fast. I'm you? Now! Anybody I got one So you know the The Kenny loggins song from top gun highway to the danger zone. For the longest time I thought it was I went to the danger zone. Like it was a location. Hey The hyland would definitely take you to the danger zone, but the fast only. Okay, that's your only flaw. Good are anybody else on some mature married is a song that you thought was saying one thing actually was saying another. All right for me. It was I. Remember there was this one song I forgot. WHO's saying? It was like a one hit wonder. Was it. So in the seeds of love and I thought it was sewing machines of love. Why would you need to Emma sewing machine for love and my college roommate ACDC where he used to jam at dirty deeds done dirt cheap. He swore he would swear on the Bible. That was dirty deeds in the jungle. G and I was going okay. That was odd I. Don't why would you do? jam for that, but okay all right anyway, so we understand that it happens all the time you hear one thing, but another thing is actually being set. In in our relationships, we have to understand the same thing happens. There is a difference between talking and communicating hearing and listening. There's a difference between communicating actually connected. Now. This is why we have to be very mindful because Kristen, and I are guilty of this and so or you. and. We can be misunderstood while listening to each other very well. Okay but when we rushed to assumptions like I often do when I cut my wife off or win I feel like my wife should be reading my mind. We fall into traps where we where we communicate the point that I really don't care what you have to say or let's get. Hurry up and get this done so I can get almost something more important. So communication is very key in. It's important not to just simply hear the words, but understand what's really being said. Real. Authentic communication suggests the following. I want to hear not merely words but your hearts. You, guys got that connection part I, want you to know you a little better and I really WANNA understand. And the most important thing that you're communicating in that moment is that you're very important to me right now. And I'm present with you and you are safe with me. Communication at its core has to communicate a connection. But the barrier to communication, WE'RE GONNA find out and. The barrier to connection is selfishness. Now, it doesn't take a an expert to realize that At the root of a lot of our problem is a level of selfishness. And I've gone to a lot of marriage conferences I teach communication seminars, especially to our young are people who are getting engaged and a lot of times these seminars deal with mechanics, but rarely do we talk about the barrier to really authentically communicating, and that is our selfishness, and we need to deal with underlying issue I if we really want to connect. Checkout James Chapter Four with me on your hand out. Bible says what kind of causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they? Come for your desires that battle with you. You. Want something, but you don't get it. That's a real important question for us to ask ourselves win were not connecting with our spouse. You kill and you covered, and that's not necessarily a murder. Sometimes we can assassinate one another character. But you cannot have what you want. You quarrel you fight. You do not have because you do not ask God, and when you ask you, do not receive you ask with wrong motives. Here's a part that shows us our selfishness that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. This is true with God, and this is also true with those that we love. So common expressions selfishness that we have to be aware of one as possible emotion. With which is an outward expression. In James One reminds us to be slow to anger. And, it's important. Note that. Anger is not necessarily bad guy created us to feel. He wants us to experience deep emotion to express deep emotion, but in a healthy way. And got encourages. If you read the Psalms, he encourages us to express and feel these deep feeling. I, but when we use toxic emotion. Is usually a weapon that were trying to use with our spouse to win a discussion or to control the situation. You realize that when we used toxic emotion. We're trying to win a discussion or control a situation. And this display can put your spouse in a no win situation. Right Now! Anger is probably the most recognizable of all the toxic emotions, but it's not the only one. Here's a few more. How about cold intimidation? Your outwardly aggressive but early everybody knows around you. Don't push it right. Or manipulative crying outbursts. It's like a child whose parents like no and a in the grocery store so to control the situation to get what they want. The kid kind of throws a fit. And don't do that as well. Again these emotions go deeper the manipulation on some level. We're trying to express a hurt in a way that we don't have to be vulnerable when we do. I want to show you that you hurt me because that takes less vulnerability and sharing that I've been hurt. All right so that's what I am. Toxic emotions, another one is a lethal retrieves is another way we communicate or anger? Now, I am a big proponent of taking a break in the middle of different difficult discussion better than a good thing. To, take a break and later. Come back when you can actually talk. Is they healthy thing? I'm over some of us. We all in the trap and I know I can't as well. We can retreat to control the situation as well. and. We know we're doing this if we retrieved if we pull back to put the other person on the defensive. Now we do this in the name of taking the higher ground. If this is one of your pet. kind of go to ways of controlling bang, but when we were treated, we're still brewing award of what we've been experiencing and we don't retreat the gain perspective. We just retreat to get the other person uncomfortable to pursue us. And that is. We see that a lot of the harsh cold shoulder. Now folks both of these tactics, toxic motion and lethal retreat, or very very manipulative, and it keeps us from connecting. Their manipulative because they have a selfish goal in mind. We want our spouse to give up or give in or two into it approach issue that we're dealing with from our perspective. And we tend not to acknowledge that we have wrong. This situation as well, we don't WANNA. Take responsibility for being part of where we're at. And we don't want another person's perspective. Selfishness which is the root of poor communication and poor connection. Not Allow us to move forward towards understanding or real deep connection with our spouse. So here's the reminder. That communication is a tool that God has given us to connect with our spouse through understanding. All right communication is not the goal if they tool to connect with our spouse. and. help us understand now. I'm GonNa give you on the back of your sheet of paper. There's a five panel on your handout on the backs. There is some help set. I'm giving you today. And the way that you can move towards a deeper connection. And get, out of the Rut of toxic motion or leaper were treat or trying to control the conversation that you're having even if it's not emotional. Is Change desires into goals. We have to realize that our goal can't be to get our spouse to do anything. If you may goals actual workplace based on other people's behavior or performance you would. You would reach very few goals. But your goal cannot keep your desire to not be your spouse to do anything. So we give me some opportunities to change a desire and turned into a goal that you yourself have so more I hate to use the word control, but influence on. All right, and so in that you can help create an atmosphere for mutual understanding in connection with your spouse. Now folks, this is really important, and we could go through mechanics all day long on how to communicate better with our spouse, but I'm I'm assuming these I've been making some phone calls not just to you to a lot of folks. It is amazing that even though we're close in this quarantine time. A lot of we're. Not Connecting. Because we're talking and we're hearing, we're not communicating, which means we're not trying to connect? So community patient is a tool that helps us close the connection gap in our homes and today. We're GONNA. Talk about that. But let's also think about what God did to close the communication gap with US He sent his son Jesus. And so he wanted to not only to us to about him the information about him. He wrote a lot to us, but he sent Jesus himself. which is like we said earlier. Emmanuel God with us to close the connection gap. So that we could be. A meaningful relationship with him, and now because the Holy Spirit dwells enough as believers. God speaks to us through his own. Though he models this for us if he is come close to us that we could be close to him. And I hope that will also implement that in our marriages as well.

Brothers was taken from the slang word for marijuana. But by nineteen eighty, their music sounded more like a chilled Roseanne. ooh. That week in late February nineteen, eighty that the DUBE's swept. The grammy's Billboard's hot. One hundred was awash in similarly sleek Jazzy ultra-smooth music from Dube's friend. Kenny loggins. down. To the equally smooth band of session players toto. But. First to the debut of a new easy listening singer Songwriter Christopher Cross. Talk. All of this music by white performers on the charts owed something to the sound of contemporary black. Music. Even the aren be performers of the day previously known for Funk, and disco hits were also shifting into smoother sultry or sounds suitable for a cocktail. Of Name. GotTa. Run. A. What you didn't hear any of these early nineteen eighty hits were lyrics about beaches or Pina coladas or nautical references. It's important to note this lack of seafaring imagery when you consider the name that got attached to all of this music, a full quarter century later, nineteen, seventy, six to nineteen, eighty four and the radio airwaves dominated by reading smooth music. Also known as. Yacht Rock. The name. Yacht. Rock is twenty first century concoction coined by a foursome of La based actors and writers have the Dawn of the Youtube era conceived for a deliberately cheap looking online TV series yacht rock caught on like wildfire finally, giving a name to a mini genre from the late seventies and the eighties that had generated a slew of West Coast based Studio bread smashes yacht rock just seemed to.

Today on hit parade, we will dissect the folk etymology of this retroactively invented genre yacht rock may be a slippery overused term, but the music was dominant on the charts at the turn of the eighties, and sometimes the hits really did sound like they belonged on a boat.

I am so thrilled with the response you know it's been incredible and You know I had no idea I. I didn't plan. You know this this timing or anything like this I I didn't plan to pandemic you know somebody or you didn't plan it for you. Know I didn't plan it I mean and we finished the record early in. January February, we finish it. I'm just so thankful. Then you know I can't imagine trying to do this now getting into the studio and trying to get people together and social distancing what try to see single senior lead vocal, but you have to wear a mask. I, tell you. The timing is great. I'm so glad the got that done before all this hidden I did want to take a step back before we dive into new album if I may you know of course, you know you became lead singer of the tubes way back in nineteen, seventy two, and of course since then you know minuses familiar had several incredible hits including talk to you later, which hit number seven on the US rock charts, and of course, the number one single she's a beauty I was just wondering if you could let's go back WanNa hear how you first became interested music and how the tubes came about. Can you share that story? was always interested in music. My mother was a singer and before she got married when she grew up in Omaha Nebraska, she was a singer and she was so good that she used to sing with big bands that came to town. You know I guess back then when a big band would travel, they didn't care they. You know they carry a few people as possible because I don't want to train or something. And they used to pick up singers in each city they would playing and in in Omaha my mom was the one they were. They were the one and she was like eighteen twenty years old and she's saying with Duke Ellington. You know she that was her GIG. She loved singing and then you know she got married and she had kids and she stopped all that and they moved to Scottsdale Arizona where I grew up. But there was always music in our house. Always, we had a great big one of those gigantic RCA wooden record players. And We played music all the time. We you know we played so much music you know and we're singing all the time. You Know My dad instituted a rule. No singing at the dinner table because we were always singing and my my brother and my brother didn't really catch the bug like I did. Or my sister but I just all I wanted to sing and I love music and I When I went to high school I got into the choir and I was a singer in the choir and when the Beatles came out, I went completely insane. Yeah. Learned all of their songs and would sing Beatles songs all the time and you know I got into the theater arts department and I started doing musical comedy. So I'm I I knew how to sing and I'm doing you know Oklahoma and cameras and the music man and little abner and all these plays we had a great great theater department. In Scottsdale high now you've had this incredible career I mean. You've also met some great work with some great talent over the years, this Kenny Loggins, Toto, the, foo fighters, and Richard Marx. Now understand that Richard Marx actually encourage you to create your new album and produced it. I was wondering if you could tell us more about how new album came to life what was the story behind that? Well it was. A Long Journey Richard we we've written songs for years together and back when he first became an artist in eighty nine. We've he's he always he always liked my lyrics and we wrote songs together and and. We wrote one song in like two thousand, thirteen it's been seven years started this. In two thousand thirteen, we wrote faker and he said Oh, my God and in we recorded at a studio up in Chicago and he said this is great. This is such a great rock song he goes we should do a record. I said, okay let's you record and I hadn't. You know my previous solo record was in ninety six which I also wrote or did with Richard and a guy named Bruce Cage. and. I said well, yeah. It's only been like seventeen years since I did a record. So yeah, let's do it and so we started with that and uh, we recorded three other songs in early in that in that time period around. Two thousand thirteen fourteen fifteen we we we did Promised Land Woulda Coulda Shoulda and how dare you we did back then. So we had four songs in the can, and then the whole thing fell apart and then you know everything. Whatever you know I went on the road with the band I broke up with my girlfriend Richard got a divorce moved to Arizona to California and you know. Everything. kind of got put on hold and over the years we kept single. Let's go. Let's see every every once in a while Richard called me we gotta get back to doing this is yeah. Okay. I'm ready and then you know be another year before. Ashby against. and. So finally about a year maybe a year and a half ago or so he said you know this is let's just finish this. Okay. We have we have four tracks. Let's just finish it. I said Okay let's do it. And he goes, let's let's think about songs and I an okay. Well, there was two songs that he had written. One Song called say goodbye which I wrote the lyrics for and he did it was I, wrote it for him and he never put it on record. And it kept getting pushed off to the next regular to then the next record and then I I said Richard. This song is so great every time I. Hear It. I want to cry it's I. Love this song because okay. Well, you know sing it. Let's do this. So you know we arrange the re race his vocal and we stuck my Vogel on it, and then the other one was still you on the inside. which was that song? He Real I. Didn't have anything to do with it. He wrote that Song with Chad Kroeger from nickelback he wrote it for daughtry and Autry didn't WanNa do it and he sent me record and the semi that's on I thought I said this is such a great song. God. This could be a number one country song is so cool and Chad had you sent me chats version of it was brilliant and And he said, well, they're not GonNa do it and and then Richard, did a version of it on on as a bonus track with Richard singing it and I said Man i WanNa do this one let's can I do this song also goes yeah. Sure. We'll do that. He goes you know it's really high I said Oh I can do it. I said, okay, he said okay. So he took his vocal off of that and we went in the studio and put my vocal on C. Internet greed fee that is a great songs to you and. Ask you because it's like for listened out there. It's a great crossover country hit the. Gas. Tick and what they want to save is what I love. I think you and I had this in common I, love records with lots of variety and you knew your album certainly has that and I. think every track on this album has its own unique story and you mentioned still on the talked about faker but I understand and I love I love both songs. Understand, you wanted the song faker to be sort of the cornerstone of the. Tells more about that. Well, yeah, because that's Because we wanted to do a rock and roll, Guitar Driven Rock and roll record and I mean who does that anymore on the foo fighters about the only one I know and even the foo fighters you know even though Dave is so great and you know I got to actually sing background vocals on one of their records and we've been friends forever but they don't have a lot of guitar solo stuff. I. Mean they're they're ridiculously great but but we just wanted like a guitar solo driven album and it just you know a classic rock album and they just you just aren't any of them anymore and. So that kind of started the idea and And then. It's funny that the the the track that kind of follows up on that is the don't want to pull the trigger. You know was another track that, Richard Texted. Me That Demo and he was saying I really I can't. I can't play the lead guitar part you know and he was playing it on an acoustic guitar playing the rhythm and and he goes you know and like like the little. The Little Demo lead into the song is he goes and he's kind of singing what the lead guitar part would be and. And it's so cool and actually Elizabeth. My Wife said, Oh my God. That's still great because why don't why don't you try to Mel that into the actual song was her idea it turned out. Great. And I just went row. Okay and I asked Richard Okay we'll. Look. Okay. We'll have. A Guy Matt PROC is a young engineer from Chicago that mixed the record and and mastered the record, and he is a brilliant brilliant guy and we said Matt. Can you figure out how to make this text demo lead into the actual recording of this goes okay. Let me work on it and he's the one that pulled it off and leaving shaky and everything, and then it turns out. Great. And that's like a guitar driven rock song and And that was one that the actually Richard suggested that title don't pull the trigger. And that was a line I had used in an earlier song in Woulda Coulda Shoulda. I used that wine and and I don't care. You know this is a do it. Most of my, I don't really write happy songs that aren't like either sarcastic or. You know or tongue-in-cheek or I don't know Elton John Elton John Once said that melancholy melancholy was better. Melancholy songs are better than happy songs while I tell you what you just on a great songwriter and you know you mentioned poetry and I understand you know you also write poetry in fact here working on your second book of Poetry I think. I have one book I wrote one book, and that was a book about about me. Wanting to get back together with my wife and feeling lonely and sitting in my apartment in Venice. Late at night. You know drinking and. You know feeling sorry for myself and writing poems, and then I would send her the poems and Actually she she worked. At work because you got married. So I'm working on another one it's it's not quite so melancholy it's kind of more storylines. Last question you know what? What's coming up what's next for you and the tubes? What's after this? Well. Good question. You know. I. DON'T WANNA. Go out social distancing I. DON'T WANNA do streaming. I don't WanNa I. DON'T WANNA play at a drive in with people sitting in their car with a little speaker hanging over their window. I don't WanNa do it. I mean I. If if they can figure this out, we'll be the first one out there man the tubes will be back. I guarantee you I wanna I wanNA do some solo shows to that would be awesome to see you back out on the road again it would be well, it'll happen I know it'll happen.

Since World War Two, the US government has been harnessing the power of media to raise awareness about everything and shape people's behaviour although some PSA's are wildly ridiculous like trying to get people that eat healthy or avoid using drugs. Real reason these campaigns persist is because to some extent they're successful. So where all the public service announcements for Kovin nineteen. Today Summer Nettles TV news producer, and former communications specialists for the city of Denver, Colorado joins us to look at some of our favorite public service health TV ADS and why Republicans aren't using what we've learned in the past seventy, five years plus peewee. Herman does not want you to use crack don't plan side refrigerators time for timer. When you were a kid, did you try to make popsicles out of toothpicks and ice cube trays filled with juice?

Jalen has appeal five gamut I got in Grad who cheese. Sandwiches come on. Here's a great little snack to tide you over till dinner. If you want something delicious and nutritious Jesus is a super snack. Look a wagon wheel. We get up and go has. been land anchor per good cheese. Win I'm dancing down in my boots cosmo down or anytime week in the means? Anchor for hunk of a slaver slashing chunk of. Is a winner. Dinner Anchor for good. That is the legendary comedic actor Lennie Weinrib who did the voice for scrappy Doo and grew Moose from McDonald's as well as hr puff stuff and Lennie Weinrib was also the voice of time for timer a series of very memorable public service announcements which started running on ABC Saturday morning cartoons nineteen, seventy five. Do you realize I remember those? Of course I was just a baby but those ran all through the seventies and Eighties and we like totally love those schoolhouse rock, all these cartoons they were more entertaining and more interesting than the cartoons themselves a little kids like repetition, right? So they'd like to see things over and over and over again, and so you get that little weekly reminder of something like that, and if it's a catchy to get to sing along with it, and if it gets you an extra nibble of cheese why not? Did you ever follow 'cause I don't know if you guys are familiar with us but so there are about. Seven spots that were made that ran continuously for two or three decades on Saturday morning cartoons, and they were instructing kids to eat healthier to exercise them and to brush their teeth and did any of this work it worked on me actually yeah. I. Actually like. To this day I don't like putting a lot of I. Don't like Mayonnaise that much on food and I don't like large amounts of sauces on it. What does that have to do with anything? Well, here's a here's a public service announcement for don't drown your food. I'm Lewis a lifeguard unhappy to say I rescued a drowning potato today playground in solid cream. What a shame because pool so much wetter pointed. So don't drown foods. Nail that's COR radish. That's so funny. You know I have a friend who would order like the salad dressing on the side and I think it's kind of you know you want to control how what you WANNA put on there. Something like that and the usually a thing is you like you're thinking the restaurant going to put too much on and she's like Oh now always ask for the dressing on the side because they give you more dressing. Off She wants it. Yeah. She wants to drown her food like my cousins they were like Nomi Malone showgirls when she orders the plate of fries, they would just take like half the catch bottle and drown the fries in it and I thought it was always so gross and I just remember that don't drown your food at. So I was just like to this day. Maybe that's why I'm still alive today because I didn't round my food and unnecessary sodium rich killed it in other way wrecked. But I don't know and so my friends summer nettles We started talking about this public service announcements and she's a very interesting background because summer has been a communications director for. Years for the city of Denver, Colorado and her background in television production and radio broadcasting and journalism and public health is really interesting. She's saying actually that we're making a Lotta mistakes with the Cova pandemic because we're not harnessing the power of. and. And memorable public service announcements in order to get people to change their behavior. So we need cutie PSA well. The public service announcements have been a tool that regardless if you think they're ridiculous or not they have shaped public behavior sometimes for the better and sometimes for the worse, let's talk to summer. Okay. Hey, lurking fausto, how are you guys doing today? I am super excited to be talking with my friends all summer's almost over, but you are here. So. Do you grow up watching those Saturday morning cartoon PSA's like time for timer? Oh my gosh totally absolutely. They were a must every Saturday morning yeah, and then during the weekday after school and stuff. Like I feel like they were actually higher quality cartoons and there was there were very time efficient I feel like they influenced us more and more memorable than like I can't even tell you about the smart but I can tell you every single thing that for timer said and did. Yeah Gosh? Like. The PSA's were. So I mean, they really shaped our perspectives, I mean I remember the right to say no commercial like verbatim like don't let a friend push you into taken drugs you got. To say, no. Tax. It's a long playing cartoon. It's like, Kenny loggins song. It's like. Right. Like Kenny loggins like like when Kenny loggins did The soundtrack to. Say. No. Maybe the smartest thing you ever do. And of course, the protagonist wearing sunglasses, which is code for cocaine and drives around a white convertible, which means he's a drug. A. A message from your local Rotary Club. They really wanted to kids off drugs in the eighties and nineties ninety failed miserably. How many listening to this show right now has said yes. I what? I did. I don't think anybody ever said now the one lie about those public service announcement is that drug dealers give drugs away free to kids. Right that was the lie that was. pity some people it's not like they just walk up on you here's a free drugs, but you know the first couple of times you meet somebody they might give you some drugs and the next thing you know you have to buy it but that was always like on, Punky? Brewster. Those. A very special episode of the Sitcom. There was always this. That the drug dealer was like wanting to get people hooked on the staff, and so they were just all time give it away to people like they're trying to make money whether selling drugs the first player. Here. was like so in the nineteen seventies, my sister and I we grew up in Puerto Rico and. There was not a lot of of What is it a content in English that came from the island? So the island of Saint, Thomas Saint Croix where the main language was English we get their television and so they would rebroadcast CBS and ABC children's programming, and so that's how we got a lot of those PSA's and the one time for timer one that we really loved was when they poured shoes into cube trays to make popsicles the toothpick break then everybody made that I totally did that. Weekend when it's raining, your mother is complaining because your ground just twiddling your thumbs. Tell your mom Juban to make something in the kitchen and though yes, the best will be a Minimu-. But the thing that's going to please your is you make it in the freezer and nothing could be easier to. Now, just watch US I go through it really all you need to do it. There's some kind of juice and just a few picks. Okay The trade. I remember that a lot of people didn't use cling wrap as much in the one thousand hundred, they do today like we didn't have it. We had wax paper. Overall That must have been unique to the Rico because like we had claimed around cling. We didn't have that because also that was plastic plastic is evil. This is it's a terrible thing for kids because it's like kids want to make something and they want the results from it immediately you know you put something in the freezer like that it takes hours and hours and hours for it to freeze, and then when you pull out, it's not like you know you expect like a nice popsicle or something like that but it's like it's jagged because the ice crystals. Form Weird and so it cuts your tongue. It's it was you know they put them also fires and stuff like that. Until those popsicles when you when they make them so that they're more have a more pleasant thing. So they never walk to like what you think they're gonNA. But in Puerto Rico one thing you could do is go to the neighbor's house and they would sell a product Kala limber, which is basically frozen. Kool. In a cup and so you pop the frozen. Liquid upside down and he would suck on it and that was like. Would they would. I would sell it. Yeah. You just knock on the neighbor's door and be like, Hey, limber and they're like, yeah, you're either either Gina Raimondo either. Bring you the great frozen Kool aid and you just Upside down and suck on it and I think they would salty for a quarter. The other option though is like kids like me like just put root beer straight up in the ice cube tray. Just. Know what? Healthy? Got Your tongue on the ice crystals though. It was like, but it would never like freeze right because you're right. It doesn't have any most fire anything like melt really fast and then the idea that a toothpick would support. It is kind of outrageous to you always ended up with have of it in your hand. The lies that they tell charm is just terrible I mean kids can true. No but to think about these, PSA's encourage kids to try things to build things trying separate drugs don't try drugs. But. Ironically, like the those PSA's actually got kids to try drugs they were like I wasn't planning on it but now you've made it seem so cool whatever dancing and going to the movies and be a star. And the drugs are just glued to the top of. Interest. Any garbage can lead. You lived up there some. Strange looking pills. It was pills heroin and points came later crackly later yeah crack. Crack. So many great moments like Whitney Houston. She actually never said that where the receipts she says where. Where other? Whitney's voice sounds so exhausted during that interview. that. You just feel like it just your heart breaks you know like everybody's memory of it is Whitney Houston defiantly saying show me the receipts like she's Cuba gooding junior thing. Show me the money. But that? But one thing. That was Really Great Was Paul Reubens Pee Wee Herman warning US kids not to do crack Oh Jeez. This is crack. Rock cocaine. It isn't glamorous or cool or kids stuff. It's the most addictive kind of cocaine and it can kill you. What's really bad is nobody knows how much it takes. So every time you use it, you risk dying. It isn't worth. Look. Everybody, wants to be cool. But it with crack isn't just wrong. Be Wrong And then. Pee Wee's head morph into a crack file. Really. Doesn't even try the thrill can kill. I'm just grabbing this drug. You don't want kids to use. You're using a child's TV personality and you're saying that it's thrilling. Yeah. It's fun to do crack and I'm like man peewee telling people not to do it is going to make people want to do it. Did it make you WANNA do it. We're now because we knew there were all doing drugs anyways and then later in college when I had friends who were doing drugs, they were paying yes you're you're so much effort to manage when you're high that it's like I just didn't want to deal with it. And really. Wasn't recovery. So like pretty much like my entire life we didn't really do a lot of drinking or drugs or anything like that I mean. Not. Mark here. What did he say about Lindsay Lohan? Isn't all expression of my My friends to say is like like Oh my God I drank more than a person's spilled wait no spilled more than that. person ever drank but no I I suppose you're. The nineties we're in college and people are just like you WANNA do line. So no just cook it up with some baking soda and put in Iraq and smoke and it's more fun. Well, that's Kinda the. Research for this show like when did people start smoking meth and cocaine I can't pinpoint it. Wasn't from like uses. Coke right until and then you then somebody discovered that if you mix it with little baking soda, you can make a rock and it, and then the rock you can sal easily on the street just throw it in a pipe and then it's a real good high. And then you see like Chris Ross do it on like new Jack City well, and then a lot of like activists say that actually the CIA and the federal government actually put that in to marginalized communities in order to. Not, make them a political threat and so. A reason to arrest them how how however that's that's a conspiracy theory. There's documentation about it. I would like to think that maybe the consequence of the drug war meant that it was harder to get a large amounts of cocaine into the United States and that's when a drug dealers figured out that by thinning at down with Baking Soda You, could actually make it more of a rush. And so people getting more addicted and that's where sort of. Very, clear documentation that the the legal ramifications of getting caught with crack were much higher. Go to jail and serve longer sentences if you're caught with crack rather than cocaine. So. Are. You know those were intensely racist policies put into place and I don't know if it's not really cutting the cocaine with baking soda. You're just kind of like I think they call it purifying it right. So you're making this rock stronger and so then when you put it into your pipe and you light up and smoke, you get a rush right away rather than having to snort it and you know you know it's fairly immediate, but it's not quite the same kind of rush. It's kind of like watching the chefs. playhouse on Saturday morning. Sure I think that these PSA's were just as much targeted as at parents as they were kids because you have to think about like the buying habits preventative measures, parents would take to get the you know what I mean. So when we talk about like milk or preventative measures about drug use, you know what I mean like I would say that it was just as much. Mean 'cause. Like like my parents were so burrowed my momma over a lot of her friends were not. Well Yeah when you're when your parents took you a drug shopping like. Don't. act. Crazy. We we saw the PSA. Kids not going to be like in the grocery store like buying your own cheese or eating his own cheese He's going to you know the parents are going to do it and the parents go have some cheese eat that but we also were or anything you know they had their modem service like a dairy glut at the time right and so even like. GOVERNMENT CHEESE PROGRAMS FOR PEOPLE FOR lower income, get free cheese because you know they had to get rid of this cheeser? I got sell somehow or exactly. So like the huge dairy push was just to preserve and. Prop up the dairy industry it really wasn't even about our health it was about the government's need to protect farmers. Well. All this stuff is kind of a consequence of World War Two. Right. So like it was the war wars and the entire planet was devoting significant resources to war anti as a consequence of that the United States had the surplus of dehydrated cheese and a small foods company called craft. Said well we'll take it. We'll use it and that's where all those you know snacks were born and so this. So yeah. So basically, like all the junk food that we eat. It stands from the fact that the United States government was taking milk. Turning into basically cheese powder and story and warehouses worried a nuclear holocaust would mean that we would need nutrients that we're safe to eat somewhere that wouldn't perish. And so you know. So in the in the late eighties and early nineties, there was these really erotic ads that ran on tell. Ada. Well, this is this is one a young boy with weights looking at himself in the mirror and he goes from scrawny little annoying kid to a hunk of a man girls going to go for me little body like this hanging there. Tom I'm you two years from now because you're drinking milk working out while not changing so far with milk's work inside you yeah. And smaller difference can show or that protein for muscle and calcium from bones. Stewart skinny dish warmer. Set yourself at eighteen doesn't convince Tom Listen to your senior year girlfriend hi, Tom I'm waiting. It does a body good. I. Didn't realize milk would make me. So Harney girl get out of the mirror. Fantasy. Why feel bad for that little kid with his poor body image stuff like how old is he tan news like girls to be interested in him like Your body's to get one that's going to do it. Come on it's your personal a. Because he's like looking and he's talking to like an older version of self but like the version himself refers them as kid. So it's almost like it's two different people you know and it's like this. In shirtless man wearing shorts talking to a young boy, it'd be like wait till you get hot as I am you've got to. Chicks. What is going on here dairy farmers. Started Highschool pushed me around. Because I was smaller. But I was working out. Drinking mill developing my muscles. By senior year mill difference for me. Yes. Sir. Yes. So, as you can see, it pays to be big on milk. Milk. It does a body. Good. On the new Sean Cody. Things that happened in the eighties nineties that would not happen today at all. Well that's the thing like Ronald. Reagan's morning in America ad was hugely influential in awakening fascists in the United States and empowering them to organize and. Try to take over the government's all around the nation. It was this like weird nationalistic fascist ad saying like it's morning in America like there's a great awakening happening. It's morning again in America. I'm kind of remember today at more men and women will go to work never before in our country's history. With interest rates at about half the record highs of one, thousand, nine, hundred. Nearly, two thousand families today will buy new homes. More than at any time in the past four years. This afternoon. Sixty five hundred young men and what will be married. And with inflation of less than half of what it was just four years ago. They can look forward with confidence to the future. It's morning again in America. And under the leadership of President Reagan. country. Is proudly. And, stronger. And Better Why would we ever want to return to where we were? Less than four short years ago. So it's tying economic prosperity with conservative values and in the ad, there are no black people at all. It's all white people buying homes getting Mary Reagan's America. That's rains America. Yes. Well, it was his is reelection at wasn't it? Yeah. That was that was a Reagan Bush, one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four. Campaign would have been a real. because one, thousand, nine, hundred, forty. Yeah. Yeah Yeah So crazy and that ad just really helped sort of galvanized and define. So many ways like even if you play the beef, it's what's for dinner add listen. Listen to the kind of similarities there as this is the what's the name of this actor? He was a lady Gaga Elliott Sam. Sam Elliott. Trying to get you to my baby. You. Wouldn't it be great surgery family dinners like these. They don't take ages to make or day the same signs are. In fact, you can easily make any one of these great tasting meal don't. Now.

BSE where I'm going with this. Beef. It's what's for dinner. For Dinner. Summer why why were we supposed to ads wanting us to eat things like cheese and me? It just doesn't make any sense to me like it's it's people want those things anyway yeah. I mean really what we're talking about is the government's very successful campaign to. Set the agenda for the American people to ensure that our farmers. State and business right this is like the American government creating ad campaigns to subsidize the the farming industry which really just speaks to the power of the American government in its ability to create lasting and impactful. Public Relations campaigns you know what I mean. Yeah publication campaign banks, and it's certainly interesting when how and when they dip their toes into doing this kind of stuff because a lot of times people are like. Government shouldn't interfere in this kind of things. They shouldn't be doing this kinds of thing let the free market take care of itself. But then on the flip side, they go ahead and do this kind of stuff anyway and don't think for a minute that you know as are not all being paid for and that are not influencing. Because they are to share that opinion summer. Yeah. I. Totally Do. The HIV campaign HIV and AIDS unlike safe sex campaigns were huge a huge examples of that too. You know what I mean like. Yeah. Like the people who were impacted once they looked. At first, it was white farmers that it was like white straight people are impacted by AIDS Oh. So now we're going to create a complete information campaign in regards to save sex. You know we're going to introduce sex education into the schools we're going to make every effort.

Now you have a problem telling me to put a mask on my face. Talking serious right now, where are we with these as well here let's let's actually play one that actually is from the world, health? Organization which as Steve Corral. The villain from he plays a villain called grew and despicable me and the minions to tell people how they can stay safe from covid nineteen. It's me grew, but you already knew that and I've got some tips to help you get through these challenging time pours physical distancing. I'm sorry I did not see you there. My whole life or there was lots of things you can do at home like stay active with shift dance moves be buried, rip up with fish. I loved the combination. gummy fattest meat you can do video calls for all of your important meet aim one. Have some fun. Okay not that much fun. Now, this does not come naturally to me, but to be kind to each other, this is is a tough time for everyone. That's it. Home stay healthy and remember we're all in this together. But. Totally separate you I mean. So that's the minions urging us. To wash our hands, wear masks and say six feet away from each other and stay indoors. Absolutely. Do. You know who who produce that. That's Not, the United States got the United States government. However, the United States government used to give money to the World Health Organization, and with the trump administration, they are scheduled to remove their income next year. Yeah. It's just like like we used to be inundated but public service campaigns directly from our government or related to it. You know what I mean like to me. It's just like, wow, it's part of our childhoods, right so people who grew up in the seventies and eighties. Mark you were exposed to I was when I was growing up it was all about getting trapped in a refrigerator like don't play in refrigerators don't get caught in a refrigerator because you could die in suffocated in there and you know for us, it was kind of like some ways it was traumatic because it made us feel like. Had this idea as though you're going to be like walking down the road and there's going to be an abandoned refrigerator. Open up and you're just going to be like I have to go in this refrigerator and closed door like it was like it was like calling you like some kind of horror film and my friend said that to me like what? would be like teenagers, I'm like that's exactly what it felt like. It felt like this calling this yearning like this refrigerator is GonNa come and get you and you're not gonNa have any choice but to resist the temptation crawl inside now, we had a big giant freezer as kids and we played in all the time and we blocked people at it's. Just right now but we were, kind of conscious to some extent they like don't get trapped in the freezer or free. Will but last week I was retired to the garage. What bothers me is that while I'm stored can dangerous to children if a child claims inside and closes my door, he can suffocate in ten minutes but I can be made safe by one of these four easy methods for free, Instruction Booklet, right Abraham Twenty North Wacker Chicago six, six Oh six, but that's the thing about those public's awareness campaigns. To raise awareness. So so if one kid isn't locked in that freezer, that's a good thing. You know we're saving people's lives. Yeah. Orange campaign going on right now about child trafficking was listening to I think on the radio, the other yesterday and they were interviewing somebody who was involved in you know. Documenting this kind of and working and researching and reporting on this kind of stuff and they're like we're seeing these things about these warning signs of what to look for in like a child who's being human traffic at the airport, and they're like, this is not happening like this. You know people aren't just taking random kids off the street and going through airports and and traveling them and selling them on the black market. You know human trafficking for children for the most part is you know a father taking the kid and Keeping of for too long like that's the real. Those are the real harmful issues. Are you know the person's taking know in a custody battle that kind of thing and just having this idea that you're always having to monitor strangers at the airport and watch watch for them like because there might be stealing a kid there like it's you know it's it's money that's wasted but it's also like it's just creating this atmosphere of fear and it's not really doing any good. You've already been told about strangers dressing up in uniform. But. There are other traps unique. High. I lost my little dog. Can you help me find him these suspicious of an adult asking for help? Hi I'm just playing with my daughter's video game that the batteries seems to be dead I've some in my car. Why don't you come over and help me put them in stay away from people in cars or vans Doing. You know we're making a movie over there you want to go see it. Only professional agencies, higher kids for TV work out of. Let's go to the arcade and play some video games. Would he say? Ignore walkaway. Boy I'll get you ten. If you'll take my bag that the car for me, it's okay to say no even to an adult safety is more important than good manners. Hey Kid. I'll teach you how to hit this ball right over the fence come on. It'll be fun. Trust your own feelings. Your Mom's been hurt. She's in the hospital and she sent me to come and get you let says secret code word. I don't know the codeword you don't need to get near the car to talk to someone inside. You look like you could use a friend saying, no to what you think is wrong to deliberate. What opened the door. Nothing is more important than your safe. High you. Sure. Cute Kid. You know. I'm a professional photographer. Abeer say no. Parents until anybody. About our little secret. Kill your dog. Josh. From their parents now you know the. Common. Kidnapped traps. street-smart. The time to start is now be cautious and observant and report anything suspicious. Love. Let's. To avoid are helping. Bribing. Being famous. Having Fun. Being. Having. A playmate. Emergency. Affection. Forty. And threats God that kids write it all down because. That's a lot to follow. A Lot. The idea that that like these trafficking incidents are happening. In some. Weird kind of like I called your children like Pied Piper to come with me way and like the ended up traffic. really does speak to the whole idea of the Cunanan conspiracy, right? Like it's IT'S PIZZA? Gate. Of course you're going to create. This is what's so interesting to me is like, yes. So our government as creating. Anti sex trafficking campaigns which. are actively feeding into the Cunanan, agenda right like. Yeah like I mean I, I went to the store. The other day saw a man wearing a. T shirt that said the Clintons and they looked like they looked like mafiosos and then on the back of the t shirt listed a bunch of like strange like literally a t-shirt strange weird accusations against the Clintons like child trafficking and like selling missiles and murderers shit like that. Yeah it was real crazy. I was like, wow, dude. How how to survive in this kind of environment where? A major political party that's in charge is doing everything it can to obliterate any opposition. I mean. It's not even. It's it's frightening. It's not even just it's obliterate. Yeah but it's also like A. By making them criminal entities like how nefarious how like Super Villain is that like I'm going to make this person I'm going to start telling people that the opposition has engaged some of the most unspeakable acts. You could imagine. So how could you even support that you know? Is this a form of projection because? It's been documented that the ice concentration camps have done hysterectomies on women by definition, a form of genocide, and certainly you know there, there are also poorly documented cases that they actually children dying in these concentration camps people being exposed to Cova. You know trump's you know hanging out with Jeffrey absorbed. And stuff. So it's like who's who's the one who's doing the illegal stuff exactly. Yeah. Yeah. It's interesting I guess you must know but a lot about it to be casting aspersions. You know what I mean like I feel like that's exactly where he's coming from as a lake. Yeah. These are dirty dirty terrible things that I've actually engaged in. Let me point the finger at someone else two, hundred, thousand people in the United States have died from the COVID pandemic. We are the I think belief were non number one or one the top countries in the world per capita meaning density of doubts. So we're here with covid in the same way that we're dealing with HIV and AIDS and early days of the pandemic. It would imagine in the early days of the HIV AIDS pandemic. The government was saying, you don't need to use condoms actually the Catholic Church did say condoms are not you you wear a condom you're hurting Jesus. They don't believe in birth control. You know. So so HIV and AIDS activists went storm Saint Patrick's cathedral with condoms and. Very. Famously had a die in because the Catholic churches endorsement against what is it? A condemnation of using contraceptives was killing people and I guess you know to some degree there there there's a tie in to the Republicans in the federal government early push to get people not to wear masks. As a way to differentiate themselves from democratic. Legislators who are begging people to Hughes mass and I'm one. I guess like in terms of like the public service health announcements like we really haven't seen much in terms of jingles or ads or cartoons things aimed at children things that are memorable. A lot of that stuff just feels very a wrote and repetitive and. They're being done by another country or another organization or something. That's not we're not. We're not seeing the best and the brightest being invested into saving lives during the covid pandemic. It's not cohesive like I can't I can remember watching ABC NBC CBS and Fox and seeing the same PSA on all those channels like. You. Know what I mean like you now happening is like local municipalities, the city and County I've done for or you know like the city of Chicago or NBC EVEN NBC corporate are generating their own messaging around cove it and that's a very nice thing you're doing but it's not the same level of concentrated. Unified. As it would be if it were a straight up federal push. And some are you actually worked for the city of Denver Colorado, the county of Denver Communications specialist, and then I also did social media communications and strategy. For another municipality. So so a lot of what you were talking about was like how to coordinate efforts in order to change public behavior change the way people think about things absolutely an inform them, and that's why like I started my own company greater purpose media because. What I noticed was government agencies really do struggle with. Behavior Patterns, and accessing folks on the emotional level to lake. Trigger. Behavioral Change. So I was like, well, this is it's a necessity and it's very it's very difficult to do it from inside the organizations because like. They're very You know and Denver is extraordinarily progressive but like some organizations are very I guess blinders they've got the blinders on. So they don't they see things from the internal aspect of life. This is how we communicate from the government level you know and it looks real like punitive and like not not good. And they have to be taught wake you need to engage people and give them a sense of. Give them a sense of joy. Give them a sense of humor in order for whatever it is making to go viral. If you're not doing that or like even if it doesn't go viral, it gets it gets significant significant about amount of shares or attention like you have to access it on an emotional level. And can we save our own lives and the absence of leadership by creating viral videos, urging people to wear masks and stay six away and wash their hands? It's super difficult. It's super difficult because every time you every time you do this, what happens is is like the the rug gets ripped out from under you like I remember in the eighties I was probably like. Six or seven a mom was a director of nursing or not. She was choose a new nurse at that time and we went to volunteer. At an HIV AIDS clinic. And it was nighttime when we went and she brought me with her because. she she thought I would lift people's spirits. Cute six year old kid you know and I was like super. Boisterous alike. I was just walking through there and I can just remember seeing like all kinds of people impacted by HIV AIDS like the man that I hugged that I spent the most time with was a white man who was a little overweight and had a mullet. I knew he wasn't from the city of Chicago I was like what the Hell is do from. Buyer's club real spray. You know like you know like as an adult I, think that like as a kid, I remember just being off put like I've not seen anyone who looks like you like. You know he was wearing a plaid shirt you know and so how did that experience shape you? I think really what it gave me is. An urgency to communicate cohesively with people. and. Also, to be kind that like things that touched one of touch all of us you know. And if we don't, if we don't formulate messaging that that. articulates that we really do fall apart as a country you know. Do. You think there's a sinister factor I mean don't John Attributed to malice what you can attribute to stupidity, but it does seem like there has been a coordinated effort to open the floodgates and watch as many marginalized people or just people in general die from Cova d'you know certainly Republicans admitted early on that they were happy that covid was coming into the United States because it was targeting blue states what jared Kushner said. To me kind of like, you know just on the Woodward tapes alone trump could be impeached. And they could keep. Ruth Bader Ginsburg from being replaced. Like that's certainly a possibility. Should be. Testifying should be not only impeachment should be in jail for making those kind of comments knowing this country was going to have like these these many deaths because of covid our president is bragging that he created a situation where people would suffer and die. It's unacceptable. It's unacceptable but I'm wondering like in terms of Ruth Bader GINSBURG unexpected death although you know how old was she eighty seven years old. Yeah, and so people are pointing out. It's like she could have retired at the age of eighty but regardless of that's neither here. Nor there at this point, it is very likely that Republicans want to push a conservative Supreme Court judge so they can steal the election and not have to face the Supreme Court decision. It's really I mean like the four holdouts I think is what Romney Murkowski Collins. And one more last trust of them and the the from Alaska and Maine. Collins's main mccaskey's Alaska. Than Romney I can't hear the fourth but. Yeah I. I agree with Mark. I wouldn't trust any of them, but unfortunately will for good or ill and gardner my senator from Colorado Yeah he's he's not. He hasn't come forward and said he's holding out but. For him to go ahead and a line within the Republican Party on replacing Ruth Bader. Ginsburg with feel his fate. I mean. Right. Now yet he's he's gardeners up for reelection and he knows like we are Colorado's a hardcore purple state like the most populous places in Colorado are blue as folk. Super Blue but then the The outliers are very much read. Know like. We've had such an influx of people from other states move here that are registered to vote and ready to go that I. think it would be like a huge risk for gardener to come out publicly at this point and say. He believes that. REPLACING GINSBURG is is up to the president that would be political suicide for him. What did you? When you heard on the news that Ruth Bader Ginsburg had passed away. On my heart Prague. I literally took everything I had lake. Not to just cry like I. Just was like a thousand thoughts right like. Oh my gosh. My reproductive rights. What are we going to look at as far as the powers of the president like? What are we gonNA deem illegal in terms of like the election if we have to have a recall like all, these only size were like Holy Shit. You know it just seems to me like. You know shutting down abortion is is a car the Republican dogs can't catch they can chase it all they want but they're not able to catch it and they do catch it. Then it no longer becomes a political football for them to play. And part of it is like if you're making abortion illegal because of the of the illogical reason that it's you know saying that in an embryo or fetus or whatever it is a group of cells is human being then logically of for tiddly fertility clinics are murdering as well. But like anti abortion pro life activists don't target those fertility clinics and you can make the argument that they kill way more stems who you know. Embryos than an abortion does. Yeah I mean. Like. They're not logically thinking this through because there really is no way for them there. It's just a way to though it's important that they have the discord it's called a wedge issue it might not going anywhere, but they have it on their side. You know all these Catholic voters are going to vote Republican because they believed that they're saving babies. And Event Evangelos to I mean huge evangelical you know, and then also like they're really not they're really uninformed in terms of like trimesters and like the timing you know like I was dating a guy recently like not not not long ago at all this dude have four children. So I, should have no Mike Okay like you you get busy in broad idea I'm sure you do but but maybe it was like six kids he had it was like, wow, that's you know but we were talking about the issue of abortion and he was like well, I just believe that all you know everything is abortion. The. Life begins with the sperm is what he said and I said Oh so you believe the morning after pill is abortion. And he was like what and I was like, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Life begins with the sperm. Right, like before it even fertilize the egg than most assuredly. If someone has to take the morning after pill they've committed abortion right? I was like have you ever bought the morning after pill? I. ooh, silence crickets. At the end of the day. tillery clinics that are all owned by Republican you know ultra conservative groups. So it's like it just complete bullshit. They don't really care about any of this they don't they're willing to let. Children dying concentration camps, they're willing to let two, hundred, thousand people die they really don't really care. No, I mean if you're willing to reopen schools right because like w Madison had to close a hundred students. Scott got a cova like day one. I mean, it was like the. Right after that. They closed they have they've been a closing and reopening so and then creating Cova dorms. So Lake. The kids who have covert now are quarantine for fourteen days. But like all these universities with these young students are experiencing lake the big ten especially because the president made them reopen for the football season but the like. They're all experiencing extreme spikes and Kovin, and the the problem is, is that we just keep on defining this disease this virus by done instead of by like what your life will look like. Be If you survive you know what I mean like. We don't talk about like we don't have Medicare for all. We don't have you know. So if you have if you have term lung issues, you have long term cardiac issues. Behind catching cove ED, how you deal with those things you know. So well, a part of me is like thinking, you know Ruth Vader Ginsberg's death is probably going to light a fire under Americans. I just feel like they. Raise, two hundred million dollars since her out. So it feels like the end of the road for the Republican Party that started with Nixon. I feels like we're watching thumb Louise and the Republican. Party I mean the tables are turned here but the Republican Party is standing in front of a cliff and they're don't there's sort of painted themselves into a corner. Well, I don't know. How many people are GonNa vote for for trump his approval rating at forty seven percent or thirty, seven percent. I don't remember exactly who you Paul but you have to remember you know it's US liberal people here in America versus all of this huge amounts of cash money from these oligarchs and not just you know the ones that live here but internationally. We're. In. Your yeah. From other countries who have a finger in this American pie and are pushing politics in the direction that they wanted to go. You know all these trumpers are out there. America First America first you know trump's stuff out to the other to the foreigners into the oligarchy and other places so Yeah. Yeah. Totally. Beneficial to him. Yeah. It's I. Mean we just like I really I look ahead and when I look ahead and and I think about it and like Ireland and in places even states in the United States that are instituting rink choice voting. I, you know I think it's going to be key to life I think. Oh Yeah Yeah, I think rank choices. Ki- like a friend. Don't necessarily might not understand that concept. Okay. Yeah. So ranked choice instead of. Giving us just like the two parties Democrats, or Republican basically says. If the popular vote. The popular vote can go to any candidate. It doesn't matter if they're Democrat or Republican and the person who's got the most votes wins the first place, the the person who gets the most votes. The second most votes gets second place. So there is no lake, it's not It's not basically like the candidate gets to choose their vice president. It's like the people get to choose a president a people then by default choose the vice. President based on the number of popular votes you know instead of US having this two party system, you can really start to look at the issues instead of the team you know for the call this is mathematically when you have a winner-takes-all kind of voting, which is what we have. Then the the two parties that are left standing become very similar to each other, and so we choice voting, you have a more diversity of viewpoints. Absolutely. Absolutely. Totally. Like I'm voting third party it actually means something with ranked choice whereas voting third parties actually used as a way to disenfranchise voters especially. Elections. Yes vote Nader. Jesus native or Jill Stein. Who which one of these guys hasn't been paid off by somebody to. Part of. It feels like. This generations of third party candidates that have been and I'm still trying to figure out why Ross Perot ran for president and Bray rated the door for Bill Clinton to win in the has the money. He had the money stinker. Those figures couldn't hear anybody telling him not to run. Talk here. Talk here. He was so ridiculous I. Don't know. People. But he would go on Larry King on CNN and he was just this cartoonish ridiculous. Conservative Republican who split the vote in Nineteen ninety-two and made it possible for Bill Clinton to be elected Yeah Yeah I'm sure. I'm sure that that was not even an accident like to some degree like. I don't know. I, don't know summer. Summer is over but falls come in much or not over. In terms of like you know your dating life and Cova. Do you like managing like. Because they're a single beautiful young woman. Is Ready. To. Mingle. And you were telling me this really great story that you're going to a nail salon getting your toes done. Gentlemen there who is. Trying to pick you up. Yeah he was like it was crazy is crazy like he will. He was I. don't know. Either right. He was. So he was like he came in and he must have thought I was younger 'cause I could tell right away he was young and his mass was like half off his face like. Hanging Down Beneath his chin and I was like. You know the the sign says. Put your mask on and he kind of was like Oh. Okay and then he put it on and the nails. Oh On that I was at in in the south south suburbs cargoes owned my friends parents or these like two little immigrants to see tiny people who I love and and I think he you know you can't see that coming. You can't see that like I love these two. Asian. People Rate Lake. Using my personal connection with them it right. I had a stake in the game. So like and the like I'm very good friends with their daughter and their five kids great. Depress you though. Yes. So then he was like when he was do. Not to put on the mask, he then pulled out like a wide like a twenty, five hundred dollars or some crazy amount of money right and like. This dude is packing I see the game here at Lake play whatever you're selling. Is trying to pick up and he's just pulls out a water cash and you're like, do I look like a sex worker? Exactly. It will then he after he pulls out the WAD of cash e- asks my friends parents the owner of the salon. He's like you guys. Do you guys tell these tears I want to buy one from you? You know what? I want to buy. One of these salon chairs from you. Yes and so yeah. So he pulls out his money and so I turned him and I was like you know it's interesting that money would never cover your copay medical bills. And so he was like and I was like, yeah, just won't pay for them. You know like tens of thousands of dollars for respiratory. Therapy probably, not not going to do it, but you could with the mask on the. Could be. A. Psa. It was crazy and then he likes sat down next to me started to chat me up right and like he's like chatting me up and he's like he's like well, cove isn't really a concern anymore in Illinois now get the hell out of here right? Because we all know then the numbers are going up. On. Crazy. So. Yeah. So I'm like Oh really he's like, yeah the threat is really from people coming in from other states and I said Oh. That's interesting because I'm visiting my parents from Colorado. Ray and he's like what and I was like, yeah. I. Must Be the threat because I'm the one from out of state here. So why don't I just take my mask off to you like I'm GonNa, get you. Life for real like Oh. Yeah. On now let's get it. You know then you go crazy like okay. Maybe I will put this mascot and I was like, yeah maybe will buddy come on well, that's the thing that's mark and I were kind of have this mindset that a lot of. Are. Actually not being reported as covid deaths the same way that HIV and AIDS were you know leukemia own? Yeah. MONJA and and part of it is like like a most famously repulse drag race she she. died at the young age of thirty four, this August car and Rupaul this year they won the. All the basically swept the emmys for reality TV's reality television. Every award they could win they won editing thing that's Rela TV show and Rupaul. said, I'd like to dedicate this emmy to one of my girls she she. Said Davenport, may you rest in power and perfection? Tonight as the only political statement, I want to make this love love for our LGBT brothers and sisters. Love for Black Queens and Brown queens and love for the United States of America. Oh. Wow. How powerful is that? Rupaul, and love for fracking. Ob- repulse had a very difficult spring. And so is the environment that Gets polluted as a result of her. fracking. Ranch in Wyoming but. Part of it is like it's a very complicated situation there and ru Paul's and repulsed drag race has been an. Platform to introduce the world and to encourage the world to see things as non binary to you know see gender as an illusion and entering courage and. Enthusiasm and an appetite for drag. and. How you feel about that show, it's been a positive impact on humanity. and to me, it makes me really sad that you know for whatever reason rupaul isn't managing this crisis as as best as I think she's capable and talk about the kiss. She hasn't really spoken out in favor of black lives matter or because of the all the above no tits out on her TV show all the above. It's like it's almost like rupaul is stuck in this kind of glass box of her own making where no new information can come in. But can we can all see her and she doesn't have any privacy, but we can't communicate with her screaming from you know Puerto Rico when you used to say goodbye to your family. When it went to the airport, they had go behind this like glass room. And you'd be trying to talk to them through the glass and you could not hear word. And you were saying, I love you. I'm GonNa Miss. You have a safe trip and you couldn't hear any of those words. And so does it feels like that with Rupaul. Like surrounded by really wise intelligent people. But none of that information is getting through Paul strikes me as somebody who's hurting who's anxious who's deleted all their social media and you know is at odds of how to proceed and. I guess winning the Emmy was great but. Yes. You know like joint come. Join US on earth. The water's fine but where you masks. Asks what are you GonNa do for the fall? Any fun plans for the full. I mean, really like I'm focused on I'm really focused on like kicking off my own podcast and then also. it's GonNa. Be about fitness you know because I've lost eighty counts. By any ski. Lady Gaga Skinny. Yup, so it'll be the podcast is about fitness politics relationships from a woman of Color Perspective from a real perspective from the perspective of someone who has lost eighty pounds beaten cancer been discriminated against and covered politics. Those are things that you know interestingly enough are being mainstream society prevents women from being because you're not allowed to be a big girl beyond television. Like it's Like, once you kind of beaten cancer, you let go from the tragic figure this. Oh. That's nice. Move Right along you know people don't talk about the trauma of surviving. The guilt that goes along with it and. The perpetual combat paranoia. That you experience like there's a lot. As discrimination. Greenbury brave and saying that you're keeping it real and really. Bucking, the trend there. Saying they, keep it real. Right yeah that's true. That's one ray. Everybody's like I'm keeping it real. Keep it real. Well, it's your. Early version you know. Maybe. It's not so much as I'm keeping it real as I've really experienced it. So I can talk about it from a perspective of someone who who can be honest about it and hide house on the ground boots and high heels on the ground there you're and I'm starting. I started a production of a documentary series. So. The series is called she quit and it's about the exodus of black women from the traditional workforce. ooh. Yeah. Based on the environment that. Way Male driven spaces creates for the black woman and its impact on our health. Mental physical financial, and our ability to be promoted within those workspaces. So yeah. Yeah. Well, the solution is If you set your expectations real low, you'll never be disappointed. That's right. The a cheerful slave. Okay. That's. Got With. Work they're like they're all like Oh. Why don't you bring and bishops are we got a promotion? Is there any money and this and they're like? Not Trust would you care? And want me to do more. For a resume. Do you have you seen my resume? Do you know who I am? I'm Joshua or God damnit. Ask who you are already lost the argument. And that's when the handcuffs come on. If you have to ask, do you know who I am? You've already lost the argument and that's when the handcuffs on. Exactly Like someone was like. Data to an argument with Amanda Cohen About Karen's. As she she's like if we could harness the power of Karen's for the world for good, we could have overcome all this I'm like, what makes you think that women are not struggling and working and fighting to keep the world together. you know you may be calling somebody who's conservative and pushy and noxious Karen. For Everyone Karen, there is a hundred wise women out there who are ruthless and relentless in fighting for equality. Yes and that's The universe from Getty unglued. Yeah I. Mean there'd be called `the being called bitches. Control of herself. That's right. Honey and don't you get a twist That before. Ole, control of herself. That is dope. But. Listen to what you can call me. It's okay. I still you can be angry. It's okay. I can I can be a stereotypical angry black woman. Oh my God it's somebody was like was really upset at me the other day and I'm just like going and they're like so you agree with me I'm like I'm not agreeing with your assumptions. I'm just listening to you right now. You know. Do you feel like I'm listening to you and they're like, it's Like that's important to important. Yeah and I was like I may be hearing you I. Don't agree that's okay. True. Or. Not The thing the one thing I wanted to leave anybody with this is you know voting the very beginning a very good place to start we'll be vote we begin with register. Local politics because that's how it all starts get involved in politics. Go onto city. Council. County Council do those kinds of things. Well, it's hard because you know you get that ballot and you look at the list and the names and you're like I've never heard of half of these people and they start googling it and there's like no information on the Internet and you're just like well, I, don't know what to do you know. A chances are you see some name and you vote for them because you not sure who they are. You might be bringing in the next Hitler in. You know what? I. Think I think nowadays especially, and this is something that like in my work with municipal city councils of definitely stained because at this stage. So much of a who we are as on social media, you can find a lot of information, but I will just to go back to mark's point is also know you're if you're thinking about getting involved in politics at any level, you are worth it you are worth it you are credible you are capable and you can do it. So if you if you don't think that you're more credible and capable than the person in. Our White House right now. So we please you're definitely more. Okay. If you can make a lottery you definitely just as trump. So just go had you know what I mean and get your little campaign signs and start putting it out on your little social media that she wanted to see positive change in the world and it does it does start on the local level. It does start it starts with the issues instead of instead of trying to be on the broncos or the bears. Let's start with how are we going to address the fact that we have climate crisis. Don't. Let's not talk about it from the aside. Let's talk about it from the actual problem like there is a climate crisis La Orange how are we addressing this? You know and and then kids like the movie. Mars. The Martian right. Yeah. You see an orange irving. We've gotTA START WE'VE GOTTA start getting people to take off these jerseys and start playing the game like I don't need you to wear a Jersey here. I just need you to figure out what's the best way for us to fix this problem. Rate. Stopped trying to figure it out based on what your political party. And start trying to figure out based on the reality of what do you think? Well, you know pointing out the Villainy of the Republican Party is constructive in these end goals or does it just create more division to sort of acknowledge that Republicans have been very vicious and dividing the country in the first place? If feels like. They, want us to fight with them. It's funny because I was talking to a friend of mine about she quit and she's actually a Republican white female. And we were talking. and. I told her I was like I I've been contemplating running for government for a long time I think I might. And she was like, will some are like, I, just don't know because I'm a Republican in you're very much Democrat in that. Kinda. Turns me off and I was like I was like you're turned off by the fact that. That you think that me being a Democrat is going to preclude me from seeing the issues she was like, yeah, I said Kelly like do you understand that when you get a job as a white woman you're probably GonNa make like sixty cents for every dollar. A white man makes that equates to about a hundred, forty, two meals a year for your daughter in your a single mother. I was like so let me just tell you me being a Democrat and you being a Republican doesn't put that meal on the plate dozen. All I WANNA do is make sure that she gets her carrots. That's all I'm asking. Come on now come later, carrots. Yes I'm trying to get you your carrots. Boo Now. Now you can either, you can either be out here trying to score points on a goal line or we can put the me on the plate. And that's that's really where we need to be like in twenty years. Do you want your grandparents your grandchildren to breathe air? Oh. Is that a thing? Okay. Then I don't need you to be concerned about Donald Trump or Joe Biden I needed to be concerned about like our air quality like the reality of it. Right. So once you stop 'cause I've had to do this with like several Republican friends honestly like. When we start talking about the subject matter instead of saying like Republicans are Oh this I'll just introduce the PROB long. And they did you know you know that? I don't know last year like like fifty percent of the students of color in. DP. Schools that are female are not are getting suspended. You know like the problem with that is that you may teenage girls and schools are getting suspended every year. There's a huge. There's a huge number of like black and Brown Latina's are black and brown students in DPS school systems and Denver public schools. Getting, suspended. And the problem is. So what you have to do is you have to frame the problem right so like when you have a friend who's Republican and they say, well, they need to act right you say but when they're not at, do you think that case Your House Do you think that they do think that that person who's not at school then becomes likely to be unemployed later. Do you think that that person is not in school may not be able to pay taxes may end up homeless on your lawn. Like cause like you not care about the fact that she suspended or the fact that her teacher has implicit bias issues and it's just a spending the black kids in the bronx not the white kids. You cannot care until that person lives in the house next to you. Is for the most part. It's all giving them that second chance you know do you punish this kid? To give them a chance to. Become who they really ought to be. Right exactly and it's about acknowledging that the majority of our teachers are white in the school systems right and like they're not prepared to communicate with kids of color like if you ask a child of color like, Hey, hey, little Devan do you want to sit down and he says no and keeps running around you asked him a question he's not from white suburbia where they say hey, Kevin do you want to sit down fucker find out? He's like no. I. Wish, she would sit down. Summer nettles. It's a pleasure chatting with you this stuff. I love you guys so much. I. Love You. So you have to come back and visit again soon.

DeaconLive - Essential Moving Parts

"What this thing is active there dude. Life guys on. Today's show get ready for new headaches at checkout and many companies are hiring but you may not want to work there. And what companies should you buy stock and during this time an? Are you an essential employees? All these questions and answers will be discussed here on this episode of Deacon. Live how are you Howard things are you doing? And you know we haven't done this and I think this is a perfect time for a big ready hands over your head. Big Stretch and John who here we go going into the second week the second cycle of this quarantine that we have here in the United States and I think it's. I'm hoping that it's working suck after the whole entire Quarantine lifted you know. Basically they're like we give up we. We have no answers for you. Everything's bad go on your business. And here's all the vitamins and stuff. We'll just stick them in. Hopefully you can buy. But no I mean I'm hoping they just extended the quarantine for another all the way till April nineteenth sixteenth. I'd get the nines and sixes backwards or upside down but I think they just extended it for all the way they were thinking like to the end of March and now they've extended another All the way to the middle of April at say that so there we go. We're in a worm full. Not Full lockdown the President. He released a statement saying that. You know only the essential employees. And we'll get into that here a little bit later in the broadcast but as far as us here at the Franch I'll give you franchise update of what we're doing. Here are eggs that we sell by the roadside literally. We have a big sign. That says Briar oaks farms. Here at the French and eggs available and people drive down the long driveway. We have a special bell which is really cool. Big Old cast iron type belts. When you hit that thing you can hear that thing for a good mile. Maybe but you hit that thing. And if I'm home Y. So my wife's home now until April nineteenth. They're able to middle of April because she's been banned to the house and we sell eggs and people coming up and they're buying you know eight to ten dozen at a time and they're like on. Ucla's you saw eggs. I go as long as up for sale. Sign out front says eggs for sale. No problem. We've got them and like I said we've got ninety chicken. So we're laying anywhere from ten to twelve dozen eggs a day. Now it's up to me to stay on top of Omen and you'll keep them clean and rotate the stock and do all that stuff. But unfortunately one of our I say walking coolers are big coolers big refrigerator units that we normally house the eggs in took a dump on us so I had to take that down to the recycle center. And so we're looking to get another. You know. Walk in Type Double Door French. Whatever they are but anyways we're doing good here at the ranch on my wife. I went grocery shopping at the Walmart and did the essential grocery shopping. He'll picked up another pack of Ham. Not the good stuff. We're doing survival. We're doing. We're trying to get survival and they just happen to have a couple of rolls of toilet. Paper grabbed a couple of those. I don't know if I told you guys before. My wife was like going to do. We have no Mike. Yeah we've got a whole thing of toilet paper down in the bottom there. Underneath in the Pantry area actually a laundry room pantry area and then she picked it up. She's like are you talking about this. Pack I go. Yeah that pack right there. She flipped over. Its paper towels. Holy did I stress. I thought I had a whole twenty four pack or whatever toilet paper down underneath the the folding table the laundry folding table. And she's like no. These are paper towels and I go well Shit Shit Shit Shit so now. I'm like well I'm GonNa have to break up the table saw and cut those things down so we can put him on the roles. Fortunately enough there. The mass run on a toilet paper here in the beautiful town of Marshall hasn't been as prominent as it has been like major cities you know Charlotte Raleigh and you know all those people in our state. We live in North Carolina. But so we were able to go out to to Walmart. I was able to go to Walmart and I grab some couple rolls. A like a six pack. It's just me and her just her so bought a six pack because well that's all they had so I bought a six pack and then by two and then get greedy like everyone else. Because I'm like if they've got this amount now hopefully in a week's time or two we how. How fast do I go through a roll of paper a toilet paper maybe a role every month? No no no no no hold on your Damn Liar. Deacon know maybe a role a week and a half I go through and girls always got these people faster and I'm like I kept yelling. Four Squares Bay four squares five squares count off and she does. She's like I know I heard I should put like a little bell on the thing if she pulls it too much that you hear the little bill dealing. Hey that thing spinning around too fast. That's more than four squares. A paper you need. I know I took too much and I'm ripping off and folding it up and putting it on the shelf right next the toilet so you can use that one next time. What have we gotten into? What have we gotten into ourselves as human beings? What have we done all crowbars? No the United States. We're not states. Where are the best country? In the world we can defend defining defect. Everything and then sure enough. This little virus creeps in key. No you're not very you're very vulnerable. You're not very protected. And here we are ripping toilet paper for sheets at a time so I hope you guys are doing good. I hope this whole thing is. You're not going stir crazy at the house. I know a lot of people out. There are trying to find projects and stuff for the kids to do or a lot of parents are having a home school their kids and and if it wasn't for computers then kids would be this whole thing. I told my wife we were sitting at breakfast the other day. They would scrub the whole school year. And just think little johnny. I guess what next year this year? You're in tenth grade. Yeah then. The Corona virus hits. And everyone's gotTa be home school and I go you know. The government says all the kids all the standings and everything all the grade levels are being held to next year. So everyone's gotTa do the same grade next year because we really didn't get a flu did really yes. Maybe that's exactly what they said. And I've got some real estate over there. I'd like the Celje waterfront property on whatever that song is so yes She can't have you know she's all she's all in her world because she she's very important person what she does. So she's got all these that's all she needs for me. She got all these things going on in her head. As far as you know she's got a responsibility you know she's got fifteen hundred some on employee she's got to take care of and now. I just got little me. Luo mean little her and all the animals and here on the French so she hasn't really gotten out to do shopping. She hasn't seen the the hustle and bustle on the stuff. That people are going through this whole pandemic. I come home and I tried to call her but she reads emails. You know she gets the corporate emails of WHO Shutting Down and what shutting down the West Coast of the United States is shutting down. And she's got transfer all this other stuff and all this. It's a lot. It's a lot for her to take on her shoulders tonight. I don't help help. I said I said look. Let's go up to the local food line which is the other direction the other side of town and it's a little closer. It's about twenty miles away so I mean you take some time and she's like we're going to need this. We're GONNA need that. We're going to eat this. You know we didn't get enough of that you know. We wanted to get packs of chicken. You know chicken breasts and stuff like when and Walmart are Walmart and the local area here had enough chicken wings chicken wings. I got chicken wings all day long. But you can't survive on them. You know you would have to have fifty sixty to seventy especially in this household if we chicken wings every day so I said. Let's go to the food lineup here and see what they've got you know. Let's walk around. I want you to see stores I want you to get a feel of what is actually going on. Because I don't want say she's out of touch she's not out of touch. She's she's on the other end of spectrum of what's going on. She's on a corporate level. She's trying to do that. So let's you know the commodores hear me who let's go. Let's go shopping. Let's go food shopping so we went through the local food line here and granted. They weren't as cleared out. They had plenty of bread which is weird toilet paper out. The door read still packed on the shelves. Which is weird. I don't know walk through. Of course the meat was gone. Yes chicken was gone. There was a lot of frozen fish and a lot of frozen stuff still. She felt better. We got a little bit more of the necessities that we need a couple more canned veggies couple more. Can this and stuff to make big like? Let's make LASAGNA. All right well we have a deep freezer. So we're looking through them again. Got Hamburger meat got hamburger meat. Got Plenty of that plenty of that. She felt that after grocery shopping. She's like okay. We're good portion. Your meals out is what I'm telling her. I'm like all right. We'll make you know play to this. You we have to eat this. There's no going around this. Well let's get some chocolate cakes and let's get some outright babe thanks survival shop for survival.

If that's the last thing we have on earth the little thing of Beanie we's or whatever that the can't stand is in the back corner of the Pantry and pull that this is a bay this last game so we she. She felt better. We got back in the car and headed back to the French here and so she's doing okay and the cool thing is and I won't say it's cool it. You rely on your neighbors or you're just not depend a relying your neighbors. It's just good to have good neighbors and down on one side of the property. Our neighbors an airplane airplane neighbor. One side of the property is an AIRP- I almost said it'd be an airplane pilot. And he's affected he's telling me the stories of what they're doing with As far as flying and grounding flights and stuff on the other side of our property there's a gentleman there and his family lives there. I think there's five or six of them in the house big family. I think it's the Filipino. Or from the wine islands up so I guess it would be Filipina. Hunan Filipinos will be felt. Philippines are w no but I mean there that culture and so like the the grandfather lives there and the one of the uncles live there anyway. he works at one of the. Tyson chicken processing plants here. And he's like you know if we can't what Tyson does if they can't get the products out. Don't give it to the employees and he's like well what you have a hard time finding any food and I go. Yeah you can't find chicken breasts and I wasn't even thinking about the time I had a couple of beers and they were doing karaoke and I went over there to do some yoga with them. He's like hey man you know times like this. They actually give the employees packets of chickens and or chicken the stuff that they make and they give it to the employees and then they loved the trucks and they making sure that their employees taking care of the process all the chicken. So that's good that's great so he's like I'm GonNa do you want what do you want? He's like I'll grab whatever you want. I'm like all right so this was just the other day.

Says the Queen says he has a bad call but is generally feeling quote Unquote Okay and he battles the corona virus. That's Prince Charles over there. In England has a corona virus in mums eases. The Queen of England is his mom. Several airlines are doing away with the middle seats and beverage. Services Delta Airlines southwest American Airlines. Have all announced this week. They are temporarily suspending beverage service and cutting meal service and its way to cut costs and reduce the number of or what the flight attendants actually touched. What they touch is being cut Amazon suspends over three thousand nine hundred sellers for Corona virus related price-gouging Amazon's also said it's working with law enforcement officials. The company is proactively sharing information with the State Attorney's office general am federal regulators on sellers gouging prices during this time for eroneous price gouging during the corona virus crisis universal studios in Universal Orlando Resort Universal Studios. Hollywood has announced that you're extending temporary corona virus closures which they previously said they would be closed for the month of March and now remain. Close all the till April nineteenth as we continue to respond to the current conditions to make the health and safety for the team members guests as our top priority. So there you go. Those are stories from that. Like no word on Disney yet. So there you go I mean those are just some of the stories that In that you might have missed that have been tucked away in between some of the major outreach and outcry from the government and stuff as far as doing the whole shutdown the stuff that we're mostly worried about everyone's worried about you know what are they gonNa do with the airlines are fly out anymore. I'll hear it is. It is end of March getting into the end of March. And it's my wife is our six wedding anniversary. Thank you very much. Thank you very much but We were talking about maybe two weeks ago before all this went down. We said you know. What are we going to do? What would you like to do and my wife at the time cheese? She's seeing the small pebble rolling down the Hill Gathering Moss. More than I was and she just find hotel. Let's let's go somewhere. Let's do something you know. Normally we take like a four day weekend do that and so I was planning on going to Savannah. Now do we drive the Savannah or do we fly to Savannah so I was looking at flights and flights were getting really really cheap to fly to Savannah but if we drove down we'd have to bring the dog if we didn't bring the dogs and we flew down than we have to house the dog? And then it's you know it's the whole thing in find someone to watch the property so and then the whole mandate for quarantine hit and shut all that down. We're not doing so. You think people say you know that it affects travel. It affects vacations and stuff. Just that one little snippet of everyone's on quarantine don't go anywhere made made us change our mind right then and there no. I don't want to take the risk. I don't WanNa take the going to the hotel now. Granted you can find cruises you can find airfare like round trip to California. I think for like two hundred and fifty bucks person at which normally would be you know. Eight seven eight hundred. I don't know how much it is. I'm making that up but I mean just dirt cheap. I mean it's it's a third if not a quarter of the price of what it used to be but now airline sees sees this problem that will no one's flying no one's traveling. I'm sure you've seen on your facebook feed the pictures of the person you know your friend sitting in the in the chair in the aisle taking a Selfie of all the empty seats behind them. So that type deal. Sending an airlines are realizing that. So they're they're eliminating the middle seat not physically pulling it out but they're saying you know we're only selling seats on the left and the right and left and right or the the aisle or the window the window even if you sell that some of these lights are still still not booked to capacity and I can understand the beverage thing. I can understand all that but I mean this. This is what we're getting to. This is what we're doing. I went shopping the other day because we decided to do To FINISH OUR GARDEN FOR THAT. We were going to do it when we got back from from our anniversary. But you know I went out there and I plowed the fields and I turn the soil and getting all that ready and stuff so when we came back from from our trip that the soil be ready to go. And now that we've done. That took a couple of extra days that I was waiting on doing this. And turn the soil so the soil here on the property is ready to go so my wife's like all right. Let's start playing. Let's do the Rosa Corn. Let's do the Rozov. What does WANNA do corn? She wants to do Zucchini. She wants to do this stuff stuff for us. And if we have any leftover spaghetti wash you guys are seeing the pictures of the stuff when we have an excess We do a Pro Stan at the at the front of our property and it's donation only. I'll put down their whatever. We got ears of corn. And just the extra stuff that you know. We can't eat it fast enough. We can't sell fast enough. We'll put it down there and and people just combine. They drop a Gallo out there. They have a quarter or dollar whatever. They always appreciate that. So that's what we're doing this this week coming up or actually this weekend coming up. I went out and bought some tomato plants. 'cause I I just can't grow tomatoes from seed. I I don't know why but we're not there. Bought maybe two three dozen tomato plants and get those all ready to go. So that's what we're doing turning the soil getting ready plant in the fields and hopefully hopefully we won't have to rely on our fields as far as consumable products. Hopefully we can expand those out for everyone else to help them as well in these times when he saw it. When we come back I know a lot of people on there. Aren't working or the job that you have won't let you work. There's a whole bunch of information that's in that so when we come back there might be some little side. Hustle might WANNA pick up.

So there's there's a diamond Dave's Ninja Chop so just something to give you a little pick me up and these are the videos and stuff. I'm seeing across facebook page which is fun but he started his own company stirs business. I guess to a certain point some of these companies out there. If you want to work I mean I don't want to say that you guys are lazy or anything but a lot of people are like going. You know we should go to work. I wish you'd go back and do this. There are a lot of people out. There that are that are hiring. I say hiring you know this whole what do they call it? The Like insecure and Uber. Not that you're going to do anything like that. But I've seen a lot of people that have been joining not oversight just at that instant cart and shipped and door dash because all these people need food they need. I say fast food but I mean you know. The people are buying food from restaurants at can have people to sit down in them. So they're sending these these people WanNa make a little extra side money little side hustle until your business or whatever you're doing I what they're doing. You can sign up for Matt. I mean now when you go to the insecure thing and they they send you the store. If you don't know witnessed card is basically you have someone grocery shop for you and a lot of times. They'll you're allowed to go out there and buy wine and bring it to these people now. You have checked the ID and all that stuff Shipped the same thing S. H. Ipt is the same thing and and there's a couple of companies out there that are doing one thing that you're going to run into now. Is that your your favorite grocery. Stores are changing the way that they do customer contact. Customer interactions and. I think it's just hopefully it's just for this this crisis that we're getting into so right now. Some of the top ten distributors as far as your grocery stuff. And when I say top ten like Harris Teeter public's Walmart actually Kroger's Alberson's if you can find an versus anymore are now getting into this new setup. They understand that there has to be some kind of protection and they will be installing plexiglass company-wide at the registers customer service at pharmacies to combat the spread of the corona virus. Now when I say a plexiglas they're not. It's not like the old days when used to go to the bank tellers. And they had that big thick glass in front of you bulletproof. And you're shooting them and shoot them. You can't get through them but what they're doing is they're putting the. This was watching a video. They're putting this twenty four inch by maybe thirty six inch last shield when you lean on the counter or lean on that little that little flat surface that they have for. If you were going to write a check they give you that little flat surface there who who writes a check anymore deacon. I don't think a lot of people do some of the lady. Does that area right there where they have the the monitor you know when they're scanning stuff they're putting a big old plexiglas shield and these are all the grocers. That are doing that Harris Teeter like I said Publix Bilo foodline winn-dixie Hampshire. They're out they're all GONNA follow suit but they want it they want to bring you in. They want to keep you safe. Instead of sending your current person out there to hassle the the Treasury's of picking up food for you and bring it home. Dan Dan you heard what he had to say as far as you know his he's dealing with his wife's not very. I don't WanNa say she's not very well she just she's a very fragile person. He was telling me that you know he goes to the grocery store and he'll take all the cardboard and stuff into the House and Senate on the counter but like all the canned goods and stuff. He'll leave in the car for twenty four hours. So that if there's a virus on it or whatever it'll it'll dissolve out there and then he brings it in then he wipes it off. These are you. Don't think about little things like that. There was someone on the radio. It was talking about one thing. He's been a teacher for so many years You know junior high elementary school. He's like don't grab the cannon. The front grabbed the CANTU cans back well. Why would you do that because I always say never been touched by human hands? Which is I make a joke of it. But Yeah it. Let's say you're looking at a canopies when you grab that canopies in the front what do you do you spin it around and you look at the ingredients. There's people on the Kito Diet people doing all this stuff. And they're looking at the the candidacy. What and then they put the either put it in the car they go. Nope can't have that one and they put it back on the shelf. So how many times has that happened? That front can gets that. Read the ingredients. Nope it's got a elective flaccid acid. I can't have that and then you go onto the next whatever product and you're going down line so I don't know if that's common sense. I was kind of fun to listen to that story. As far as the guy that teachers said he reaches all the way in the back while he's dripping his arm his underarm juice on the front cancel. I still wouldn't pick the front cast. But go Harris Teeter public's all your major providers of groceries and stuff are putting. You're going to start seeing them. The big plastic plexiglas screens in front of the Castro. So stick around When we come back we'll get into more of the show. You listen right here on property. I'll be right back. You're listening to the best in Iran.

She's a she's her wits end with all these little small tasks that he was throwing his wife. Hey honey can fix this and fix that. I'm sure at any given rate. She would be happy to do it but you know when he's home all the time and she's got already task on top task of what she's doing so she's she had her. She had enough. She was like I'm done. I'm done I'm done and one of the things that's funny my wife you know. She's home now because of the grownup Corentin now so she he'd literally ask me like this is we'll say this is Wednesday so Monday Tuesday. She was only. She was home all last week as well. Monday and Tuesday. She woke up and she said to me she's like. Oh my God babe. Does my breath stink log? You know I don't really want to judge you as far as like your brother anyway. She's like well no. I can't remember the last time. Brush my teeth and I go well. Why why can't you remember? She like because I got into the habit I'd wake up. You know I take a shower in the morning and while I take my shower in the morning and brush my teeth. You'd be making breakfast and you know it's kind of this. This whole dance the Samba that we do to get one each other up and reading and out the door or onto their daily tasks now granted. She does get up but she doesn't have to get up. You know an extra two hours early to get ready everything. Because of course she's at home you know she's there's no video conferencing she's she can go one or two unless she has riding lessons she'll go a day or two without. I'll do the thing no day or two but she forgets. She's not routine. She's like on. Remind me tonight to brush my teeth four or go to bed. I'm like at and we're sitting at the dinner table. I'm again problem. And then as soon as we went into bed. She's like I. Are you taking Charlie? I'm GONNA take shower shower on my brocher teach like Oh shit. Yeah I'm totally out of my routine. I'm totally out of thing. And that's that's I can see that happening at home for anyone. That's out of the routine and you know you get up and you do this and do that. And then you get out of your your your phone or your funkier your comfort zone routine. There's there's a lot of companies out there that you know being in your funk and stuff and we need to get out and if you need to make extra money I told you about insecure and stuff. Now there's brick and mortar stores that are hiring people and when I say brick and mortar stores. I'm talking like big facilities. Distribution facilities are places that are in demand the part of the essential employees or an essential companies and businesses and. I'll get into those people here in just a few minutes as far as Do you qualify. And I'll break everything down for you so you can figure out if you qualify for that for your for your company or Your Business that you're working for now Amazon. Is Hiring people starting? Like fifteen bucks an hour There's a lot of distribution centers around here I know that I see landscaping people like I say. Professional LANDSCAPING BUSINESSES. That are hiring for gutter insulation. They're hiring for just a lot of companies are out there and they're starting high. They're starting at you. Know fifteen seventeen eighteen dollars an hour. I think pepsi-cola's hiring on starting at eighteen. Summon our up to twenty four dollars an hour. I think those go for the drivers and stuff that all these companies are hiring people. And they're they're offering more than what they would normally do for an entry level jobs now. Here's the problem. They're they're not getting. You would think. Hey you know you're working at McDonald's or you're working at one of the non essential places and and you can't get a job you've been sent home or you can't technically work from home so you're just waiting for call. Mac TO GO BACK IN. And so you're you`re. I'll get another job. I'll I'll start another job and then I'll go back to my other job when they hire me back. And they're hiring these people at high tremendous high rates that they normally wouldn't do now granted they probably hire him at a seasonal basis home depot. Does that work there for twenty years. Home people higher seasonal people and then they'll cut their hours technically back until they quit which is horrible. But that's what companies do especially retail outlets. Now one of the things they they making people not actually going for the interview and they go for this and going for that is they're not. They're not taking the jobs because what's one thing right now. That people are looking for outside of just working if you're at home and you're not getting paid and you want to get a paycheck so you want to get a paycheck. What's the next thing based on the stuff that we're doing right now? What's the next question the? Us when does benefits kick in well benefits doesn't kick in until most companies for ninety days so ninety days. You know you're not getting health insurance. You know getting whatever now granted there's Cobra out there for people that have been laid off and cobras like three times the price that you pay. Normally you pray to God that you don't get sick and what are you what are you doing? What are you going your ending up in a facility? Where you're touching and you're guarantee you you're within four photo someone else if not four foot of three foot from someone else or generally within a unsafe distance between these people now if you don't have health insurance and they're not providing health insurance for ninety days. I mean what's what's the goal of you. I mean granted. It's a paycheck for a week or two or a month. But what happens if if it comes down. What if there's an outbreak in your facility? I mean they're letting people outta prisons nonviolent offenders that have less than however many months or years left on their sentence they're actually turning them loose and setting them free now. They're not allowed to buy guns. I think that was stipulation whether it be felony or misdemeanor during this time. They're not allowed to purchase a firearm but some states are turning you know. High densely jails. They're turning prisoners out based on this. So you know if you're going to be a key accompanying that's higher. You see it on facebook all the time M.'s owns the big one. And that's when it sticks out in my mind all the time. Amazon's big offering you know seventeen eighteen twenty some odd dollars to start but yet you know if it would say first day includes Health Insurance. But they can't they have to cover their own ass. And I say coronas covered the wrote manual stretching on that one we come back. We'll get into the essential -ployees are you one of the central point or an essential the central one of those words. Pick twenty you like and we'll come back and talk about it cigarette. You're listening library down from radio. The roof the roof. The roof is on fire. The roof. The roof is on fire. The roof the roof is on fire. We only no water. That bother. Burn motherfucker bottle someplace tall. He word you're tall. Can you talk? And you say prompt. Let me tell you some free. I JUST WANNA say this traffic dot com. You're listening to Deacon you're listening to live you can live declined. Makes you go to the proper radio website in the way you do that as good. A Prophet Radio P. R. O. P. H. E. T. RADIO DOT COM and click on the be hurt section. I'd like to hear from me. I like to make sure that you guys are doing okay. Click on that. Let us know how you're doing? There's little sections be heard. Little Blue Bar. The very about on the page opens up a microphone and you can be completely anonymous. And also there's a section on there that says share with US Click on beacon live says share or something like that. I forget what it is if you've got pictures and stuff or videos There's A. There's a megabyte limit on that but you can share that with us and we'll we'll put up on the facebook page and we'll put it on the The old website here looks like and give us a call anytime at four zero seven. Four four eight eight eight zero zero as well you know with all the crow virus. Everything that's going on. There is some say if it's good news it's good news for some. There is now as a four hours ago. There is now only one country in the Americas that does not have any reported cases of the GARONA virus. Now there is a the country of Saint Kitts and Nevis is the only country in both north and South America that has no reports of the Kovic Nineteen virus until March twenty two other countries in the Americas believes in Dominica no cases of the virus according to the World Health New Organization on a daily situation report on March Eighteenth Saint Kitts and Nevis. Prime Minister and Minister of the National Security Timothy Harris tweeted confirming countries. Still had no confirmed cases that that they had but their kid their key. They're working on keeping everyone at bay so what they've actually done in these in these countries here is they've literally shut down their whole entire borders. Because it's kind of like what we're trying to do here now but you know we have so many moving parts in this country these two little countries if you go to their country and from outside and you'd listen live there. No there's there's a murder scene say murder saying that the end of your street and you're trying to get home. Let's say something happens on your own. You're trying to get in there blocking the front part of your neighborhood off right and you're sitting there going. No no no. That's my house there and you show me your license. In these countries they will put you in quarantine for fourteen days. Even if you lived on that street in your neck I live in that country. Well guess what you're GonNa sit here for fourteen days. We're going to keep an eye on you and then you can go to your house. And so that's what they're doing and it's another extreme. Now that is a small group of people. There's not a lot of experts and stuff. It's a very very small community. But that's what they're doing and they don't have any corona virus yet so talking about buying stock and some of the companies that you should buy stock in is anything right now. That is growing tremendously based on this whole the quick phone. You know the cart one company right now. That should be killing it because I know like my wife. She has to work from home. And it's mostly conference calls but there's not really a video conferencing that she has to do so. She goes in there with her. You know her hair up in a gun and no makeup and stuff. She's beautiful no matter. What Rea- sunshine. Every time we see her but some companies are relying on other methods of getting getting the workplace done and one company I would buy stock in right now is a company called Zoom. And you're like well digging. What is zoom? Do for me. Well this is an example. A small example of what zoom can do for you and here we go. This is this was all done using zoom this is a choir different people from all over the United States where they do one video and then another video interview and they just kind of layered over the top of each other all using the zoom at which allows for I think either four K. or ten eighty EP resolution. So listen to this to pay study. You show stop. Crowns starts off one girl singing. And then they bring in San Diego California Nashville Tennessee and the ad more more. There must be thirty people on this thing all sing same title. There's another nine so this was all done using the Zoom Z. O. M. ZOOM APP. Fan If you if you're not familiar with it or if your company needs some way to host of video conferencing. I'm sure they're they're not pay me anything yet. But here we go. This is the gentleman explaining how the video was actually done so yesterday we did. Zoom meeting had a great turnout. I felt a little disorganized in. It wasn't exactly sure all the questions we would get so I was kind of stumbling around showing examples so I took that experience and I went ahead and recorded myself. Doing some of the kind of how to's and go ahead and show you to start real quick. I'd like to say that this is an amazing project. It's amazing Thing that you that you are all looking to get into takes a ton of time dedication frustration. Now this is a he. He's explaining. How do quoc choir thing? So that being said we learn some lessons that could have spent data. That could have made it a lot faster. That could make working it a lot faster and so I'll share some of that with you today. There's a lot of videos online doing this. Eric Whitaker is the most famous he has done. So anyways they're using zoom for video conferencing and stuff and they actually were doing this This choir thing. So Zoom I've seen it. I know a lot of realtors are using that to to kind of talk to people trying to you know instead of like skype I think skype. You don't hear about skype anymore in. If I'm wrong on that please let me know but I think skype gone by the wayside. I think they can't really keep up with all these other things these necessities that big corporations need as well so speaking of what we need. And what big corporations need arguing a an essential employee no essential employees the fine as any employee that keeps public life community life and safety standards to a livable respectable level or expected respectable level. And so. I've got a list here. You know they say you listen to the news feeds and they've only got so much time for all this stuff. I got all the time in the world. I got all the time and world all for you guys. So listen here. What they classified. I'm going to name the thing and then all the the list underneath it and I promise I won't bore you but listen up if you've got any of these positions there's one maybe fifteen sixteen and I'll go through Auburn through them real quick. Just I'm not going to burn through quick enough not quick enough. All right very started. The head of the essential employees is emergency services. That's police officers. Paramedics medical technicians firefighters nine. One one call centers and workers like that. Now bear with me. If you don't fall in that you might fall into these. Other categories that are considered essential employees the chemical section those working in laboratories pharmaceuticals distribution facilities transportation of raw materials chemical materials and producers of goods and manufacturing plants so manufacturing plants. It's kind of a broad scale there. But I mean you know like the steel plants. Your plastic plants a rubber plants and stuff like that energy telecommunications engineers cybersecurity natural gas propane workers and utility personnel are also included in this commercial facilities. Anyone those that are in the motion picture studios broadcast actors. Get your asses back to work. Let's pump out that New Episode of whatever that was postponed last time. This get that thing out Roland. Can you hear the chickens in the background? We got him running around here on the property. Because it's a nice bright sunny day. They all go back in their home at night. emotion picture studios broadcast media. Motels hotels stadiums. Zoos museums casinos. No real estate debatable. Shopping malls and professional sports. So all you guys can go back to work food and agriculture. Those working in grocery stores pharmacy. Some restaurant workers. Not You Janet. You need to sit over there. You don't do your side. Were farmers. Food processors food truck deliveries company Cafeterias and Food and Beverage Industry. So if you're in those fields you're considering essential worker financial services employees residing in banks or any financial or lending offices health and public health care and public health communications and information technology. So if you're in those fields you stay home as well are you. You're allowed to work as well. Critical manufacturing does that manufacturer products for any of the sixteen critical infrastructure sector sections were sectors one of the two government facilities. Damn Workers Kim nuclear reactors materials and waste transportation. We don't want your near Shit and stuff piling up so we need to get the the waste transportation up and running those areas of aviation air traffic dispatchers warehouse workers which is kind of I guess for these under the nuclear reactor material and waste facilities truck and rest stop employees maritime mass transit freight and postal. So you'll still be getting your bills in. The Mail. Might not be getting a paycheck. But you're still get the bills in the mail. In the transportation field areas of aviation air traffic dispatchers warehouse workers again truck and rests up employs again maritime mass transit freight and postal our water and waste management water management in defense industrial base though supporting our US military via manufacturing production it security intelligence mechanics engineers and intelligence support. And that is the list of everyone. That is an essential employees. Now my question is who's left out. Who is not the essential employees? You know how is what is. The percentage between these employees and the nonessential employees is going to stay home. You know who's going to keep these people off of the. What's the difference between the traffic and stuff now granted? I had a laughing with my wife. We were talking about realtors. Realtors are technically don't need the show houses. They can still tight loans. They could still do all the the servicing and of of a realtor here goes all my real friends but they don't they technically can't show houses that can't be on the road so we're sitting around. We're driving actually. We had drive to her Campus pick up some stuff and then so she could work from home this week and the roads were wide open clear. I'm like going you don't want to people or clogging these roads up right now. That are sitting at home. One people in school and to rebuilders so that you WANNA blame traffic America. You want traffic why you can't get somewhere. It's because people who have kids in school in realtors showing houses. And that's my only that's my synopsis. As far as you know why the roads are wide open because everyone else should be work right according to this list. I'm just saying just saying so if you fall into that list. Go back to work Be careful where's the gloves how come back. I'm going to wrap up the show and getting some silly stuff. You're listening right here on property right back first and foremost.
