Lil Ring's Full Moon Mother's Night Off

And notice just how much the mothers of the world do they do. So so much so much and just like the little ring tales, and this week's story sometimes it is hard to be able to see and appreciate all that our mothers, do so I encourage all of you this year to ask her ask her what you can do for her or what she might enjoy or how you can make the day special so happy mother's day everyone and enjoy. Lil rings, full moon mother's night off. Once upon a time. There was a family of ring tail cats that live a hard scrabble life in the open hills of west Texas. Life was not easy in those hills not much grew in those hills and not much survived in those hills. But this family of ring tail cats survived and this was due to the strength and determination of mama ring, tail whose name was Lil ring. Lil ring raised her three cubs alone. As ring tales are generally solitary creatures and the father had returned to that solitude before the cubs were born. For the first several weeks after the cubs birth. Lil ring stayed with them in their small dry Barreau nursing them until they were old enough to start learning. How to hunt and gather their own food. Now hunting and gathering in the barren hills of west Texas was no easy thing. Like, most of the creatures that lived in those hills ring tail cats hunted and gathered by night when the sky was dark, and well, not only was pray more difficult to spot, but the brightly colored prickly pear fruit or hack, berries were harder to pick out and even the grubs and other insects were harder to see. Lucky for the ring tail cats. They have large dark eyes that work very well at night and can help them with that challenge. But unlucky for Lil ring, those big dark eyes take a wild to mature enough to work. Well, so for several months, hunting and gathering was entirely up to her and three growing ring tail cubs can eat a lot. So hard scrabble really is the right word to describe little rings life. It was a life of work. A lot of work all night long that started before sunset and ended after dawn, and even then she often needed to tend the little ones to reassure them that everything was okay, tell them bedtime stories took them all in and then keep an ear open for any danger while they slapped and keep in mind, she did all of this on her own. There were no breaks. No nights off no vacations at all hardscrabble. Indeed. But did she complain. No. She did not even though her temper was sometimes short, even though she occasionally needed a moment to herself. She wouldn't have changed a thing as tired as she was. She loved her nights with her little ones. She was so proud of them of their growth and of how much they were learning. She was very happy with her life hardscrabble as it might be. Now, all that being said would she like a night off if circumstances afforded it which she enjoy kicking her little paws up and stretching her ring tail out and sipping on cool water brought to her and munching on fresh grubs gathered for her. Yes, she would she would like that very much, but she wasn't going to hold her breath to wait for it. No. There was too much to do. Every evening before sunset. She woke before her cubs to survey the land around their borough. And if she saw that it was safe she woke each of them up. It was dusty tumble and curly. And then the four of them started their night. Now, dusty was a cautious ring tail who stayed close to her mother while tumble was more adventurous. She was the one who couldn't wait to hunt on her own curly. The little boy ring tail was kind of like his curly question-mark tail curious and always asking questions while there was still a little sunlight to see curly had a million questions. What is that tree? What are those birds? How far away is that hill? What does that plant taste like, but as the night fell and he couldn't see quite so much. He got quieter and stayed closer along with dusty. At this point little ring would take her cubs to a thin dusty river for a long drink. And then it would be time to hunt. They mostly hunted mice, squirrels if they could find them, snakes if they could catch them and toads if they had to they used their noses to find them there years to pinpoint where they were. And then there is when it was time to catch them, dusty tumble and curly had developing noses and ears. So they were often able to do steps one and two, but there is were not yet developed enough to see them not at night at least not on most nights. There was one night when they could see and it amazed them all how well they could see this was of course. On the night of the full moon. Their first full moon. The three cubs were dazzled at how. Well, they could see dusty watched his mother and noticed every time she smiled every time. She looked proud. And then toward the end of the night when she looked quite tired. Tumble could see the mice. She could see the prickly pear fruit. She could see the desert moths, and she even caught one on her own and curly's questions never ended. Why is the moon so bright where do the moths live during the day? How does the river glow? Like that. And then right as the moonlight faded and the sun began to rise. He asked why doesn't the moonshine like that every night. And Lil ring tired as she was smiled and answered it is a gift the moon gives us every month. She gets slowly brighter every night until tonight when she is brilliant. And now she will start to dim until we can't even see her at all. But then we won't be able to see at all said tumble. You won't see as well answered little ring, but that will change as you get older. And when you are old enough you will see just as well on the darkest of nights. I wish that would happen soon said tumble. It will happen when you are ready said little ring with a yawn. In that morning. The three cubs went to sleep each with an important picture in their minds. Tumbles all the moth that she had caught curly saw the moon reflected on the river. And dusty saw his mother's very tired face. The following evening. After a good days sleep, the three cubs came up with an idea. While Lil ring was outside surveying the land around their borough, dusty said to them mama looked really tired last night. She works really hard for us. Yeah. Said tumble. I just wish we could do the hunting. Sometimes like last night. I caught a moth and then curly considered this and asked a question. Well, if we can see when the moon is full, why don't we hunt and gather food on those nights? Oh said dusty who looked excited and mama can take a break. She can have a night off. Yeah. Said tumble who seemed ready to jump up and down, and we can catch the food and bring it to her then curly asked another question. When do you want to start dusty and tumble looked at each other and said next full moon? So it was decided whenever the three cubs had time alone. They would plan what they started to call full moon mother's night. They decided that their mother could come with them to watch them hunt and gather, but she was not to help she would only recline rest and enjoy the feast brought to her. For the next twenty eight nights, the three of them paid particulate attention to their mothers lessons in hopes that they would be able to do everything for the approaching full moons. Mothers night, and then on the night before their special night, the three of them decided to tell her. You work so hard for us said dusty sweetly. So we decided to give you a night off said tumble. Proudly would you like to rest tomorrow night while we hunt and gather food for you asked curly happily. Lil ring was speechless. She was completely surprised, but. But she said a few times can you see well enough. The full moon is bright enough said tumble and the three of us can find lots of food said dusty who would you like that asked curly again. Yes, said Lil ring who now looked like she was going to cry. Yes. I would like that very much. This made the three cubs very happy. And after a tight squeezy hug, they all curled up and fell asleep. The following evening. Lil ring woke wondering if this full moon mother's night off was such a good idea. You're still so young. She said you shouldn't be hunting and gathering on your own. You need my help. We want to said dusty we really can do it said tumble. Can we try asked curly which you let us try? Again. Her eyes got wet with sweet tears and Lil ring nodded her head. Well, the night didn't go according to their plans, I'm afraid tumble was sure that she would be able to catch a bunch of mice. And dusty was sure that she would find lots of hack, berries and curly was so fascinated by the bugs he was supposed to catch that. By the knights end. They had only one prickly pear fruit three ripe hack berries to grubs and one toad to eat. The three of them pooled their harvest, and then looked up at their mother with a mixture of nervousness and will disappointment. But that didn't last for long because their mother was amazed. You did this. She said shaking her head in awe, my babies did this all on their own. Look what you did fruit. Grubs and towed a toad, and I didn't help it. All do. You know, what I did tonight? I lay down on the ground, and I looked up at the full moon. Oh, it is so beautiful, and it's been so very long since I had the chance to just relax and look at it. No, my darlings tonight has been such a gift such a wonderful gift. And now, I get to have dinner that was caught and gathered by my own brave and capable children. Thank you. And then she hugged them and in an instant any nervousness and disappointment was gone, and it was replaced by pride by satisfaction and deep warm love. Let's eat lowering announced and all four of them set down and enjoyed their first full moon mother's night feast, it wasn't big it wasn't bountiful. But it was delicious. And so began a tradition with the ring tail family from that point on every evening of the full moon. The three children were in charge of doing all the hunting and all the gathering for the meal that night, and as the months went on the children got older and more capable the feast got bigger and bigger and more bountiful, but none of them ever compared with that first full moon mother's night feast that they shared that night a night of warm smiles of glowing moonlight and so much grateful love for their mother.

"Hello. This is David sparkle stories and welcome to the podcast. This week's story comes from our junk yard tales series. And it is about a little rabbit that has so much energy and excitement and I- DA's and spirit that the grown animals around him, get a little overwhelmed. The story is called risky, rabbit and a half to say that I have a lot in common with this little guy. I wonder if some of you might feel the same way. So one quick note before the story that on March thirtieth. We are offering a free course for kids called how to pay soft attention in. This comes out of our superhero summer camp that we had last year and it's built for all those risky row. Ebbets out there that notice everything and want to be apart of everything. But sometimes get a little distracted or overwhelmed. In other words, people like me. So if your family is interested in learning more, you can find the course at David Sewell, McCann dot com backslash shop or rather slash shop. Maybe I will see some of you on the thirtieth. All right. So here is risky rabbit. Enjoy. Risky rabbit. This is a story about a junk yard, a most unusual place that was home to a host of unusual animals. It didn't matter if you were a dog or a beaver a raccoon or a mouse. The junkyard was a safe place where all belonged and everyone took care of each other. Our story begins in the back of the junk yard wherein old maple tree grew the maple tree was likely older than the junkyard itself and its tall thick branches stretched out over the compost pile stacks of cracked, flower pots and even over the chain link fence that separated the junk yard from the forest beyond. Aside from providing delicious sap in the spring, abundant shade in the summer, bright beautiful colors in the fall and a toll leafless lookout in the winter. The tree also was home to to junkyard animals. Low, mama. The busy rabbit and Sally the chipmunk. Low mama was the first to make a home there. She raised her seven kits in the old maple tree. And just after Lil mama's youngest moved out to start her own family in the meadow Sally, moved into share the tree since then the two of them have been the best of friends enjoying all the maple tree has to offer them. On this particular morning. Low mama was awaiting the arrival of her daughter, clearly and Klay Lee's son, Ricky. Lil mama knew that her daughter was raising her son on her own and from time to time needed a little time to herself besides Ricky had apparently been a bundle of energy lately. And Klay Lee was one tired momma. She says that he has been rather daring lately explained Lil mama to Sally as they waited like jumping off of toll rocks or getting too close to bears on blueberry hill. She apparently warns him that he's being too risky, but he can't seem to stop himself. That can be hard said Sally sympathetically. I know that I was something of daring chippy when I was young and a challenge for my father to be sure. Oh, when you've got little ones, you are always either cheering them on or telling them to stop. It's a balance Sally nodded. And then heard something in the distance Ricky called the voice don't get too far ahead. It's risky mother called a smaller voice. My name is risky. Rabbit said Lil momma that would be my daughter and my grand kit over this way, you to Luma lead them to the tunnel under the chain link fence and saw her tired looking daughter and energetic. Looking grandkid climbed through. Wow, called the little rabbit. Look at all this stuff. Decline. Are there wolves here? No wolves deer said Lou mama who then gave him a big hug. Said the little rabbit. I was hoping there were wolves. I told you said clearly her daughter Ricki loves adventures, these days, risky said the little rabbit with a frown. My name is risky rabbit because I take dangerous risks and go on perilous adventures. Clearly looked at her mother inside. This is how it is. Well, risky said. Little mama with a smile. You will see that the junk yard is filled with adventures to be sure great said risky rabbit as he looked around. Are there mountain lions or monster, trucks, or pools of quicksand? Not to my knowledge said Lil mama, but there are giant excavators. Daredevil skunks and high branch acrobatic raccoons? Wow. Said risky, rabbit happily. I can't wait. I'll take good care of your boy said Luma to clearly you get some rest and some time to yourself. See you tomorrow said clearly with a tired smile and good luck. Clearly, then went back down through the tunnel while risky started running around. While. Can I climb this hill where is that? Skunk. Can I write an excavator will get to all of that in a moment said Luma? I I want to introduce you to my friend Sally color, risky said Sally, oh, I said risky with a slight nod. The you like to climb in jump and go on perilous adventures well said Sally with a tilt of her head. I don't know about perilous. But I do like adventures very much. I like the perilous kind said risky as he continued to look around the really dangerous ones. My mom doesn't. She just likes to stay at home in the blueberry patch. She doesn't like to do anything low really said Lil, mama. She doesn't like to do anything. Nothing fun said risky. Can we go? See the raccoons that will have to wait until tonight said Loma. But yes, I will introduce you to them and the daredevils skunk asked risky. We can go there right now said Lil momma with a wink to Sally can the skunk. Fly through the air asked risky with wide eyes. Said Sally as she narrowed her is that depends on who you ask. You can ask him yourself said lo mama who indicated the way to go risky ran forward with Sally following low mama hopped quickly but not too quickly. And eventually all three came to big tin. The area of the junk yard where everything metal was kept Sally lead risky over to the ductwork home of Spiro the fun loving skunk. And by the time Lil mama caught up with them. They were knocking on the metal door is he really big asked risky with excitement. Big enough answered. Lil, mama. Just a men at called Spiro from inside just resting by is. A moment later Spiro came out the door and stretched good morning everyone. He said with a smile, can you fly or jump off cliffs or have you ever outrun a cheetah or ostrich or eaten glass? Spiro blinked few times at the little rabbit. And then said, and who do I have the pleasure of meeting. I'm risky rabbit said risky because I love danger and perilous adventures. I see said Spiro who then winked at Lil mama danger and peril. Well, I can tell you that. I am no stranger to those two things or Healy asked risky early said Spiro. And if your grandma lets you I'd be happy to give you a little demonstration of super skunk, which alike that. Yeah. Said risky happily. Do you fly through flames? Said Spiro not so much flames. But before we start taking any adventures interrupted low, mama. We need to understand some rules of the junkyard. Yeah. Those are really important said Spiro listened to grandma. The most important is that we take care of each other. Here said the busy rabbit we look out for one another. And while you are here, we will all be looking out for you. So if one of the junk yard animals says something is too dangerous, even for risky rabbit, you need to listen. Nothing's too dangerous for a risky rabbit said the little rabbit confidently. Well in the junk yard, we will be the judges of that said Loma and the other important rule is that we all need to stay away and out of sight of the warden and the workers who were they asked risky who was now very interested. The people who work here we cannot be seen by them lay. Our they asked risky who started to look around. We are looking for them said Speros. We are staying away from them. I know, but where are they the little rabbit asked? Again, the front of the junkyard over there and the far side of the junkyard over there said Spiro quickly. So you can just stay clear of those two areas risky, rabbit nodded and was quiet, but looked at the path toward the front. The four of them decided that the best place to play was by the junkyard pond, where Spiro could show him his super skunk routine on the slide. Can I try this? I'd asked risky let me demonstrate a few times. I said Spiro who started to climb the hill of the slide. So while Spiro was climbing Sally and Lil mama chatted on one of the hay bales by the water's edge. Spiro finally reached the top he put on his special super skunk goggles and positioned the metal tray ready risky. He called from above. It was quiet risky called Spiro risky called Sally risky called. Lil, mama. Ono said Sally DEA think wondered Spiro the warden's office said Lil mama who immediately started hopping down. On the path. The other two caught up to her by the busted couch right outside the warden's office. She was crouched down and peeking out the side of the couch. Sally and Spiro also crouched because standing in front of the office was the warden who was leaning forward talking to sergeant the steadfast watchdog. You see him whispered? Sally Luma shook her head and looked back to the warden. Now dog harm stepping out for a minute you keep an eye on things and don't let anybody in here. All right. Said sergeant with a funny sort of expression. Now was that a bark or a sneeze asked the warden? Said sergeant again said the warden who then turned to his truck you sound a little like a car that won't start. Well, see later, then he hopped into the front seat and drove the truck through the front entrance. Lil, mama. Sally and Spiro came out from behind the couch and walked towards sergeant sorry to bother. You sergeant said Lil, mama. But we're looking for just then sergeant opened his mouth and spat out risky, the little rapid risky rolled over and started laughing. That was great. Can we do that? Again, said Lil mama there. He is. I assumed that he was related to you said sergeant, but I didn't have much time each just hopped out into the open the warden walked out. So I quickly popped him into my mouth. It was so dangerous called risky. It was perilous. Your grandkid needs to understand the rules said sergeant with a serious expression. This will not do. We'll take care of. It sergeant said Lil momma with an equally serious expression. I apologize. No worries said sergeant who then turned too risky, you need to listen to your grand mom, and she will tell you. What his okay. And what is not okay here in the junkyard risks. Like that affect everyone. Not just you if the warden had seen you well, then he might have looked around for other rabbits as well. Sergeant than nodded to Lil mama, Sally and Spiro and walked toward the gate. Come along risky said Loma risky. The rabbit stood still for a moment looked over at sergeant. And then back at Loma. He was quiet. He blinked too few times. And then he looked very sad. It's Ricky he said quietly. Then with his head down. He followed his grandmother all the way to the old maple tree. As they walked Spiro said goodbye and headed back to big tin. Sally waved and ran off to the treasures for her exercises. So when they arrived at the tree it was just the two of them. I'm sorry. He said softly, I didn't mean to get you or anyone into trouble. I know you didn't said lo mama, and I can see that. You are. Sorry. I just want to have fun while I'm here. My mom doesn't ever. Let me do anything fun. I want to do things in heaven ventures. And she never does. I don't think she even knows what an adventure is. Risky. Rabbit was quiet for a while. And then Lil mama gave him a big hug. It will take some figuring out. That's for sure she said with a smile. What do you mean asked risky, you need to learn what his too risky, and what is not. She said we won't always have animals like sergeant around to tell us. So we need to figure it out for ourselves. You do know that you are not the only rabbit that is interested in adventure and danger and peril. I'm not asked risky who then looked up at her home. I know I have known number of rabbits who took some very big risks and learned which were okay. And which were not okay, really asked risky like what? Well, I knew one rabbit that nearly broke her foot by jumping out of this tree. She thought that if she tied cloth napkins to her four paws, she would be able to fly. But instead she just fell. She didn't do that again. Wow. Said risky looking up at the tree. What other things well the same rabbit actually once jumped onto sergeants back while he was doing his rounds and rode him, like a horse all the way to the junkyard pond. Thou- rabbit road on his back asked risky with such a big smile. And what happened he stopped suddenly, and she was tossed into the pond to swim her way out. Why hate water called risky with a big smile? Did this rabbit used to live here at the junkyard? She did. Said Loma she is your mother. Risky, then looked at his grandmother with complete surprise. My mother did those things she did said Lil momma and many other things too. Risky. Didn't know what to say. He stood still imagining his own mother riding sergeant or jumping from a tree. But she doesn't like it ventures. He finally said could be said Lil, mama. But my guess is that she is just being protective of you. She knows what it is like to almost break Paul or get tossed into the water or get stuck on the roof of the warden's office. And she doesn't want anything like that to happen to you. Risky nodded his head slowly for a moment. And then a sparkle came to his I she got stuck on the warden's roof. She did said Lil mama who then leaned back against the tree which you like to hear that story. Yes. Please said risky who then snuggled against her side. Well, one day. Your mother told me that she had figured out how spiders were able to walk up walls, and she wanted to try it out for herself. And then they'll mama continued the story about her adventurous daughter while her equally adventurous grand kit snuggled in a little closer and listened with wide eyes and a satisfied grin.

Podcast Extras: The Foolishness of Lil' Cent
"Places, please and dance is about to begin. So yeah, I mean this whole thing with 50 Cent Lil Wayne. I don't know if y'all saw their interview personally. I I heard I listened to the clip. I can't listen to a whole 50 Cent and Lil Wayne interview. What am I going to be listening to? I mean what more can they discuss or not discuss? In my mind, this is just me. I don't know. It could be me. I'm a semi social black introvert. I don't necessarily think they have much to say and I try not to listen to people that don't have much to offer. I've listened to a 50 Cent album since the second one that was probably back or what 1942. Use Me by 2003 a second album was Lil Wayne Since he started call himself the greatest rapper of all the time. He hasn't been anything close. I'm a hip-hop know you can debate me about that. But he repeats the same stuff at his songs the same metaphors the same the same everything the same topics. He does the same thing his interviews. So how am I supposed to listen to fifty minutes or whatever? It was a 50 Cent Lil Wayne. If I wanted to listen to that I will go to a local playground prepaying make listen to to ten year olds talk about girls and Giggles. I don't put any weight in what they say. Lil Wayne is already said all types of stuff about black lives matter and and and and people take it to heart and and Lil Wayne and he believed he said this. Yeah, I can he doesn't seem like someone that is I don't know. Well read He seems like someone that lives in the isolator bubble pre pandemic bubble in that bubble is his is within his own mind. As if black lives matter does not apply to him. He doesn't see himself perhaps as being a black life. Maybe he is the Martian he speaks about in his music. I don't know but I don't spend too much time thinking about it because I don't think that they spend too much time thinking. In general, however, I did find that one that one clip of their interview. That 30-second whatever was clip. I found it somewhat interesting. We're 50 Cent said he prefers exotic women as if you know, we didn't know that already judging by his videos, but that's a whole other. subject 50 Cent said, you know, here's this quote this in this I want to read it verbatim. All right for Batum. That shit is exotic. That shit. Looks like a whole different from the shit. You see in the neighborhood. It's some kind of ways interesting to explore but they get mad they get angry. How did you end up with this motherfuker? I'm like, huh? And so the day that he's talking about the day that he's bouncing being angry talk about black women in the Exotic. He's talking about is not a car. He's talking about exotic women. You know, he's he sees an exotic woman. He's attracted. He's wondering like but they get angry. They get angry. They being black women get angry in a set of Saying something in lightning, you know. Instead of saying something like you know, what challenging this this man's opinion Lil Wayne is how old how old is Lil Wayne? I gotta type this and you can probably hear me typing right now. I gotta type I said, how old do you think Lil Wayne is Lil Wayne? Is 37 years old instead of being $37 Wayne's 37 god dog. I want to add about I'm going to tell you how many years I'm going to add a but God. Oh. You got at least five. At least five. But anyway. Instead of saying something like you know what I don't agree with that. No, no 50 Cent, you know, it's not let's not talk about black women. this little giggle he giggled he laughed and he laughed in a in almost agreement. I would say it's agreement even though he has a dark skinned black daughter of heck, even though both of them are black men, but yet they talk about today. They they see themselves a separate to see maybe their daughters as something separate and they don't they don't even they're not even conscious of what they're saying. And if they are gosh, I hope they're not conscious of what they're saying, but you know what they probably are. That's what happens. We live in a bubble of privilege. And we live in a bubble which people don't expect more out of your thoughts and your intelligence. That's what happens when you live in a bubble what you're surrounded by men who act like boys and who in turn treat you like a boy. As opposed to holding you accountable as a man. This is South more conversation. And that's putting it kindly. And so, you know, it's too between young man here. It's it's just right here. It's their comments. their comments Or the reason why? black women And rightfully so feel like they're attacked. His his one sweet his one tweet its breath Lil Wayne and 50 Cent. I'm so sick of black man making a seeing like black women are jealous of women of other races. Another one is a really bothers me that black men feel bold enough and comfortable enough to openly blasts black women when the world are hates us enough. I saw the clip from 50 Cent and Lil Wayne's talk show. Yeah, I like this one just win thing. Lil Wayne 50 Cent can't get any more anti-black and colors to join forces and top themselves black women, please stop supporting these a she Pages. She does say ninjas. This is a good one to 50 Cent. Lil. Wayne are so toxic. They are black mothers will continuously bash black women. We all love to talk about racism, but unfortunately some black men have self-hatred reflected in their hate for black women as quietly swept under the rug. I agree. But let me make a disclaimer. As a black man. As a black man who's old man, I'm old 36000. I don't think the 50 Cent Lil Wayne speak for black men. I just don't I listen. I don't I know that there's something like well, you know what I agree with them whatever they are out there. But if we're nominating speakers for black men and black for black men for African American men, they're not our nomination. We got a list of a million more. They're not it. They just aren't. I don't trust any any either of them judging from their from their Instagrams from their Twitter. I don't trust either of them to communicate for me. Or to communicate for the needs wishes and the perspectives of black men in America. I wouldn't trust them to be the leader of student council. Let alone the leader of black men. They just they just aren't the representative. Now listen, I'm not going to deny the black women or under attack and infill attacked. Listen, I agree and I agree with it from the element of black women being attacked by black men. but these two these two he's on our Representatives. these two aren't in in in some ways like Can we separate I'm not with these two. I know some other brothers aren't with these two. But these so screwed up for a little bit everybody. There's a lot of black men of screwed up for a little bit of everybody. And one day, you know one day I want to venture down this road. But I don't 50 Cent Lil Wayne. I just I want more because I I should expect more out of him fifty cents probably like 45, man. Curtis Jackson's like 45 Dwayne Carter Lil Wayne is 37 but their minds aren't there you almost there another one of these cases of trauma, which you almost have to look at them like thirteen or fourteen year olds just in terms of their speech and and the way they connect upon these type of conversations. They're great. Businessman that has very little to do with what I'm talking about. I'm talking about connecting on an intellectual level. on a societal level as black men their maturity is stunted in a shows. This their their quotes and not surprised me. I would have been surprised they would have been fans of black women truth be told that would have been surprising. If they would have came out to you know, what black women, you know their queens and listen that one a blew my mind. But the fact that one made a comment by angry black women and the other giggle know that seems to be their character. And that's been shown for years. This is another one of those sort of Music Industry thinks why I just don't I don't have much faith in the music industry. I just don't. Because if you listen to their lyrics if you see their videos what? these two was on about That they're not about Black Culture that on about the black community. They're not about black women. button cells they're about their own money that not about investing in in in the community. down on that type of level they're about themselves. It's a shame that. That when they speak as Elders, they're supposed to be Elders in the community 37 or whatever fifty cents age is 45 whenever he is when they speak people should listen because they should expect to hear the right thing. They should expect to hear wisdom. They should expect to hear knowledge. They should expect to hear vision. Instead when they speak we hear the thoughts of the past creeping into the present. And affecting the future so many young men young women men and women. Young black men and women around this where they they they feed into their own stereotype. There's very little wisdom that's being said in their conversation. Their conversation is out of a twelve thirteen year old. I'm not with them. I'm not surprised with what they said. And I don't support what they said. I've seen I've seen enough ads Within the Music Industry requesting exotic women. As the look for videos seen a couple other ass saying, you know, no Dark Bites meaning no dark skin women no brown skinned women. We're not talk about listen. I'm sure black. I'm like 11:57 p.m. Black trying to get to like 12 a.m. I'm inching my way there. I'm dark-skinned, but when they talk about dark-skinned and not talk about me, I'm extra, but I'm almost purple of them. All right, I'm midnight black to them. They're talking about if you have any type of brown. You're too dark. That's the industry. That's the industry the ad like phaethon. That's the industry that that quite frankly. I don't think sets sets black men or black women up for failure. They set them up to make money promote extort Black Culture become culture vultures take everything that they want and leave them penniless and broke with very little structure around them. Or in this case become like 50 Cent Lil Wayne isolated from the community isolated from their culture. Isolated from the very impact on the positive impact they could have within this world. Leave them with minds of a twelve and thirteen year old never challenging their thoughts their opinions expecting growth from them. The industry would make you put out music and and not equip you or not help you or not expect you to put any thought into the words that you say. 50 Cent Lil Wayne step your game up. If you're around these two brothers. Have a conversation with them. And for the rare chance of 50 Cent Lil Wayne ever listen to my podcast. No that show I want to expect more black women deserve more. And that though your words are Hollow, hopefully one day. You say something concerning the black community concerning black men concerning black women. That is a hollow but actually have some substances on wisdom behind it. That's it. Ladies and gentlemen, the journey is over.

That is my only driving force. So if you're keeping track harry and meghan last public appearance with the royals was at the westminster abbey commonwealth service back on march ninth and that was kind of awkward because they had just hammered out there. Megadeal we were all kind of aware of what was going to happen. But the sussex is the sussex's is currently live in a fourteen million dollars in montecito california with one year. old artsy. nikki is is saying her. I'm sorry to tracy chapman in the tune of forking over four hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Tracy chapman claimed in a lawsuit about two years ago.

Listen to how similar so i mean there's the i mean she's there's a sample was bad when word four hundred and fifty thousand dollars the apology. I mean. that's the risk of make these tapes. And you think they're never going to get released but you pass them around to friends as soon as a dj gets hot track especially somebody comes as big as nikki did get played. That's gonna get leaked all right. It is the song that if i never hear my kids. Sing it on. Their little toy microphones ever again. I will not miss it. This song old town road. Featuring billy ray cyrus will it has just become the highest certified song ever by the recording industry association of america reaching fourteen times platinum status in the united states.

Nasdaq's was on with jimmy fallon on friday night and he was talking about where his name came from and why he didn't think about using his real name in the entertainment. Business montero what didn't use montero as a stage name used the stage name because like nozzles like my internet alias. And then. When i started doing music i was like i want to have this and they didn't do rapids name. Lil lil little knowledge. How funny so. I was like all right. Bet i'll be. Little is an excellent later on. Yeah in case. You're wondering and leslie. I would actually call this something great to come out of twenty twenty more than one in sit in every six one in every six. Americans entered therapy for the first time last year. Those new patient patients joins the thirty one percent of americans who either continued or return to therapy and the study also found that fifteen percent began taking medication for mental health issues for the first time in twenty twenty so hopefully. We are ending the stigma surrounding mental health. Now unfortunately as i say that according to the same poll there is still a very negative perception about going to therapy because forty seven percent of people. Who who did this poll believe that entering therapy is a sign of weakness and a lot of the young. The i mean the older. Yeah yes put it out a host shows just. It's like an older crowd. That's still believes that stuff that generations that will change and then what needs that next obviously is wants. The old old people are out of the congress. Maybe we can actually get that paid for him just like we do physical help. You need to take care of mental. The people who were in therapy said it's because they didn't believe their problems. We're big enough to need professional help and other safe. They just think they can handle their problems on their own.

"Sally" from Junkyard Tales
"Hello this is David of sparkle stories and welcome to the podcast this week. We are celebrating friendship and making friends. I have some very dear friends that I have had for over forty years. That is impressive. And I'm still very close with them. I do hope that all of you get to have friends for that long as well. It does take work but my is it a lot of fun. Well here's a story about the moment in which a friendship began to characters. Many of you know quite well. Ben Thomson the cat and Sally. The chipmunk for those of you who are familiar with the Junkyard Tales Stories. May seem strange to think that these two very good friends didn't know each other well at some point but the story you are about to hear we'll bring you all the way back enjoy sally This is a story about a cat. The cat's name was Benjamin Thomson an unusual name for a cat but ben was an unusual cat. This is also the story about a junk yard. A most unusual place that was home to a host of unusual animals. Our story begins in a section of the junkyard called Big Tin where all the metal things were kept like pipes old appliances and sheet metal. Ben was on his way to see Spiro the skunk who lived in his ductwork house with Zippy the porcupine. Ben and Spiro spent one morning a week finding unused tins of sardines tuna and other canned fish. That came mixed up with other junk on this day. Ben was winding through tall piles of appliances and around the heaps of corrugated tin daydreaming. A bit about his life and the junkyard and his friends there. He had never had friends like he had in the junk yard. He marveled at how sergeant the steadfast junkyard watchdog had become his best friend. A dog equally surprising was his friendship with all the mice. And Georgia. Bean. The kindly rat. Who would have thought that a cat and so many mice would be such good friends? While ben lived in the open world he never would have imagined being friends with the mice. A rat with a skunk with a porcupine and a possum and he was also friends with Lil Mama busy rabbit but then Ben Thought of Sally the Chipmunk he and Sally were certainly friendly but Ben really didn't know her very well in fact he had barely even talked with her. He really liked sally and she was daring and able to do really amazing jumps and acrobatic tricks but he wasn't sure that she liked him. She hardly ever looked at him but ben thought that you know he was a cat and she was a chipmunk in in the open world cats chase chipmunks so it was no wonder. She didn't like him if she didn't like him. But but things were different in the junk yard and in the junk yard the animals took care of each other so he found himself wondering about Sally. He wondered if maybe he done something wrong. Now as he considered this he felt a sudden woosh of air brush past him and he heard the frantic scurry of little legs before he could identify what that sound might have been the source of. It was round the corner of toppled refrigerator then hot on its trail with something else. Something bigger that ben quickly identified as Lil Mama. The busy rabbit. She had a big smile on her face and Ben was surprised to see her running so fast she was a grandmother he thought but she nodded to Ben and ran right by him. Apparently chasing whatever the first thing was ben stood there a moment and then he decided to follow. He dashed round the topple refrigerator. And Follow Lil Mama around several more piles and then into Woodville. The part of the junkyard where everything wouldn't was kept he saw Lil Mama gaining on this little creatures. She was chasing until whatever it was suddenly disappeared. Lil Mama stopped. And she was breathing hard and looking around but she was still smiling. Ben Approached and asked between deep breaths. Who are you chasing? But before Lil Mama could answer. Ben Felt something jump onto his back and hold on. It was so surprising that Ben started to run. He could feel something the size of a of a big mouse on his back. He was holding onto his for. It was shouting random Cowboy Lil Momma started chasing them calling. That's right sally. You need a swift horse like Ben to escape me then. Ben Realized that it was sally the chipmunk on his back and so we stopped quickly sending sally tumbling over his shoulders onto the ground. She did a few somersaults and then lay on the ground laughing. Lil Mama fell to the ground next to her laughing as well. Ben was confused and a little annoyed. He felt like he was on the outside of this fun. Then Lil Momma said Oh. I will miss this. Sally Ben wondered what that could mean and why was Lil Mama Chasing Sally. He decided to find out. What's going on? Is Somebody leaving lil? Mama and Sally laughed again. Which made Ben feel even more annoyed then. Lil Mama explained. It's his spring time Ben. It's spring and we're getting a little bit silly so please excuse us no no. No one is leaving. Well leaving the junkyard I should say but oh my then she started laughing again and then sally continued. It's time for us Lil Mama and I to leave the old maple tree and move into our warm weather homes. That's all in every spring when it's time to move. We played tricks on each other. Helps US part because we don't live together in the warmer months? Lil Mama recovered from her laughing and added. I live in a Blue Berry. Bush in the meadow outside the junkyard and Sally well used to live in a pile of crates. But what all gone then. She started to laugh again. Is Sally joined her? What why were you chasing? Sally asked Ben because she put mud in my Wash Bowl. Lil Mama said pretending to be outraged. Well that was because you made our calls. While I was sleeping returned sally. Well that was because you gave me a bunch of toy wooden carrots for dinner. Well Pat was because you replaced my acorn stash with plastic gold balls then both fell into laughter again. Ben Tried to piece it together so sally. You don't have a warm weather home. Well No said Sally looking thoughtful for a moment. I guess I need to find one. I'll ask the mice. They're good at that sort of thing. Ben Thompson suddenly saw his opportunity. Maybe if Ben could help her find a house like how he helped Mister Flinch. The old possum create his new house in Woodville. If he could do that for Sally maybe she would be his friend. Maybe she would like him. I could help. He said suddenly both of them stopped and looked at him. Ben Felt self conscious. I'm good at that sort of thing. I'm good at seeing how something can be built. Sally looked Lil Mama and shrugged her shoulders and said sure. Do you know anything about chipmunks. Ben Got a little nervous. What did he know about chipmunks he thought about it for a moment Well they like not. Sally giggled a little. Yes then we like nuts. But I'm talking about houses. How about I tell you just a little bit. We like tunnels underground tunnels and we also like having a few different options for entering and exiting. Just in case somebody is chasing us. She smiled at Little Mama and then looked back at Ben. That's what we'd like. Do you think you could find that Ben answered without any consideration? Yes I'll find it sally or I'll make it and then Ben Marched off. Hoping Sally was impressed. He looked over his shoulder a couple times every few steps to see if she was watching but as soon as he turned a corner he slumped. How would he find series of tunnels she was right? The mice would have been better at this. Why did he volunteer for this? Ben Started wandering through the junk yard in thought he would ask Spiro the skunk for his advice he was almost in big ten when he saw several piles of plumbing things sinks knobs drains and pipes pipes. Ben saw lengths of plastic pipes. That was perfect. These pipes were like underground tunnels. He got it. He dragged some of the shorter lengths over to the treasures. The part of the junk yard where there were lots of little odds and ends and they were close to some of the other homes and then he started working. He soon realized that he didn't have the right kind of pause to a fix pipes together so the best he could do was to line them up really close together. He was able to line them up in such a way that they made something like a a circuit or a loop around then imagined sally dashing through the pipes having a really good time. He was proud as he completed it and ran off to find her. He dashed over to Woodville and then too big tin but he didn't see her Spiro. The skunk invited him in for a chat and drink of water but he dashed right by finally he found her by the old maple tree with Little Mama. They both returned with him back to the treasures to see the home. They both nodded their heads pleasantly while Ben explained how it worked. There are three exits entries there there and over there and there's a a series of tubes in between that make central loop so you can run around that loop and choose which exit you want to use. And he pushed on one of the pipes to show her. But it fell out alignment. He smiled nervously to Sally Mumbling We just need some some taper or maybe I can have the mice dig this. Sally was quiet for a moment and then she spoke up. Thank you Ben. It looks fun with the tubes and everything but to problems I can see. I don't see a place to sleep or to store any food. And the whole thing's pretty exposed. How can we hide? This ben was immediately crestfallen but he tried not to show it. He picked his head up and he said simply okay place to sleep place to store nuts and to make it hidden right. Well yes but then you don't have to do this really the mice but ben interrupted. No I want to do this. I can do this then. Sally and Lil. Mama smiled politely and headed back to the old maple tree. Ben Looked at the pipes and he wasn't sure what to do now. He was convinced that Sally didn't like him. He thought about the look on her face and he thought that it looked a lot like a frown. She definitely didn't think he could do this. Why would he do now? He thought that if he didn't figure this out she would never be his friend. Ben started running around the treasures pulling out an old tissue box in a a busted birdhouse in anything he thought might be a nice place for her to sleep. He even found a little plastic dollhouse bed in measured it to see if it might fit then a voice behind him made him jump up. Hello Ben what is this then? Ben turned quickly around with a nervous expression on his face. It was sergeant the steadfast watchdog and bans best friend. Sergeant cocked his head. Steady been steady. You seem a bit wound up. What's Your Business here? Ben Then went into a long explanation of the whole thing. Well pacing nervously up and down and all around when he finished. He looked expectantly up at sergeant hoping he would approve of his plan. Sergeant studied Ben for a moment and then said Ben. Why are you doing this? Ben was confused. I told you. Sally needs a warm weather. Home Sergeant stood tall. Did she ask you to help Ben Paused and then said no? And does she need it right away? Ben Paused again and said No. Then why are you running around like you did? Something wrong. Been took a deep breath. I'm not I mean I just want I just want to make it nice so chill so that you'll like it then. Sergeant looked at him and then the pipes and boxes and other materials. Well he said all right then I hope she likes it. And then he trotted off to complete his rounds. Ben was really nervous now. He didn't think sergeant liked what he'd made in. Why did he ask all those questions? He wandered then. He started back into his work. He started pushing pipes this way that way again and trying to get things to fit and then he. He wondered about making some climbing spots for her but he wasn't sure if she enjoyed climbing did chipmunks really prefer to be underground but she seemed so happy running around the junkyard earlier he kept working and trying to build things and try to even do some digging but nothing seemed to fit right and then in the middle of his frustration. He heard another voice. Hello Ben it was sally. She was here and then looked around. Everything was a mess house. The House going Ben turned around lowered his head and he mumbled good. Well actually sally not so good. Oh she said looking concerned. I'm sorry to hear it. What's the matter. Sally started to then walk around and look at the network of pipes and the piles of other materials in. Ben Started following her trying to explain. Well well I know that you said you like tunnels and so i. I worked at that I on the pipes and and put them together like you saw before but but then you said you needed a place to sleep so I got these boxes over here and those over there but I'm but I'm having trouble getting them to fit. I'm just trying really hard. Sally to make something. Nice because I really want you to like me. I mean it I really want you to like it. I like the House I mean Sally Stopped. She had heard him interface softened. Oh Ben Ben I do like you. I've always liked you. You're so smart and so kind but you're always with Sergeant Spiro in Zippy. I was never sure how to be friends with you. Dan Brightened High. Felt the same way about you. You and low mama were always together and laughing and having such a good time wow. Isn't that funny? Ben and Sally smiled at each other for a while and then sally asked. I was wondering Ben. I didn't ask this before because you seem so focused on doing it yourself but I was wondering if we might build my house together. We would you be interested in that? Ben's face grew wide with a big smile. I think that would be great. I was thinking we could dig a trench for the pipes. And I'm having trouble with the sleeping part and then continued to talk about the house as he and Sally strolled side by side through the treasures and the site of Sally's new home.

A staff writer asked the ringer, and I want to tell you to bring you the good news at the Carter five is free. Kanye went on SNL this weekend and disappointed all of us, but at least one of our legends didn't let us down Donnie Kwok be Donnie. Clark is going to be joining me today to talk a little bit about Lil Wayne and the fifth installment of the Carter series, and we're going to do another special edition abused recommendations with Chris Ryan. He's going gonna talk some more about punk music. But first, let's get into low Wayne. Sleeping with the enemy Medina's to intimacy, sleep in beverage interests, not starting to enter it and not starting meant to me peaking like Britney, tweaked Mike in eaten die. Sympathies remained quiet here for Britain, Lynn, love that physically. Visibly toss in looser her tongue for a long time, a long time. I cannot stress how long it was. It was free c, five, and now it's backwards. The Carter five is out little Wayne's twelfth studio album. It's also one pays for the third biggest streaming week ever coming in behind postpones beer Boeing's Bentley's in Drake's scorpion which were also released this year. This should kind of be inevitable for, you know, rapper of little Wayne's stature and critical record, but I can't really stress. It felt so inevitable. It seemed very unlikely due to a really long period of legal trouble and failed starts of singles and just Lucy's that were kind of uninspiring. And you know, didn't really give us that much hope for the eventual fifth installment of the Carter series. But it's here and here to help me talk about it is Danni Kwok. What else can you hear my lighter flicking? Yes, I can hear your letter. I almost at this microphone on fire. Wayne is back. So you do agree that he's back back in terms of what does back mean exactly back as in the focal point of conversation on Twitter and on the end on the charts. I mean, he's never really gone. I mean, he's always been a person of intense interest just because of his catalog and his stature in the game. But you know, in in so far as everybody's dissecting new music and new lyrics by him, he's back. Yeah. Like back as an entertainer as as rob harvey'll put it in our exit survey which is only ringer dot com right now, right website, you should go read that blitz talk about his stature, so to speak because I mean, like for a period of time in the early to mid 'oughts Lil Wayne was or I mean, like basically all of the two thousands of Wayne was at least in the conversation with the best rapper alive if not the best Rafael live. That is correct. That is correct. In fact, I used to work at complex magazine. I worked there for many years and right in the middle of the arts was January two thousand six Lil Wayne appeared on the cover alongside Travis Barker. So that's kind of shows you the mid audits of that cover. But the the cover line of that issue was famously on better than Jay z. And that was little Wayne kind of planting his flag in the ground as the best rapper. And at that time, that title was a little bit up for grabs. Because if you remember that was when Jay z was about to release or had just released. Kingdom come, which many think is worse album? So Wayne, a kind of seeing that the throne. There was a spot there for him to take, and he was in. He had just released. I believe, like father like son, which was the Birdman duet album Carter three was on the way he had done all of those mix tapes. He was prolific as fuck. And you know, I think he rightfully claimed himself as the best rapper actually Br to bring it back to the mid odds. I just reread this interview. This cover story yesterday, shout out to Toshi condo who did the interview Toshi asked Lil Wayne who were the three best season the game right now and guess who is a besides himself. The less often I, he said he said myself, Joel Santana and the game. And then he added a wildcard, Jim Jones while it's very two thousand six. Yeah. I mean, like there was that a the collab- project that never was I can't feel my face the mix tape, which was right by black Republicans that he made with Joel Santana. And then I mean, like he was, he's all. Always been doing stuff with the game and incidentally or that same time game was doing those live AOL sessions with Travis Barker playing live drums for the LAX album. I think eventually a Travis Barker's little short lived run as like a hip hop icon. I mean, I guess he's still respected obviously by rappers, but he was like all he was doing soldier, Bush it game ship true, but also that cover story wasn't really the first time that he had booked a Jay z little bit because on the out euro to bring it back, which was on the first Carter album. I know you remember that saw beep, Lamborghini, spaghetti? Yeah, the the on the outside of that song, he says, best rapper alive since the best rapper retied yet because of course, Jay z and Wayne talks about it in his complex interview, like kind of disengage or saying, Jay z. light, how could you be the best rapper and you retired in your coming back and you think you're bringing the ragging back. And I've been here is basically what he's saying. This is also the interview that famously sparked the little young money. Clips beef when he said, I don't see no fucking clips, and they were talking about babe and selling coke and all of that. So legendary interview. Also, we cannot let this section of the discussion pass without saying med. What was the name of that? Jay z song where the the music video had danika Patrick in it, show me what you got. It was showing what you got and low wave free styled over it on one of the drought mix tapes. And it was honestly one of the one of those kind of cultural artifacts that release signals to the period of time where like Wayne was wrapping like he was possessed. The best. Hitting the great in the world. Good afternoon. Your money. She'll we what she got momma? Should we what you got her lady hands up on pay pay. He called himself to my Jordan over coordin-. I know it was just like really like this kind of playful freedom where he just completely stopped writing anything down and was wrapping with such confidence index air. It was ridiculous. Yeah. I mean, if you look at the trajectories of Wayne and Holmes, respective careers, I mean, that was like a low point for Hove and that was Wayne not at its high point. I would say, but beaching these high point, which would I think in the mind of most people be the Carter three hours came out in two thousand eight sold a million copies, its first week. There's a really good video of it on YouTube where like Wayne is on the tour of us just kind of with his headphones on recording and watching sports center and like pain. ESPN they wrestle the bus of you like as soon as they figured out that that sold a million copies and he takes his headphones off users like I was recording, I didn't even think about that. The Carter three had a Millie, right? And I think is basically that's on the mount Rushmore of Wayne songs. And when that song came out, that was a game changer as well. He. John. Around my youngest Monday LA getting there by the Niger ever again, near McClatchy. I'm. There was that kind of late two, thousands, super auto tune phase where he was just trying literally anything that came to mind. Good illustrator. This period would be the day no remix the that shoddy low song where he was just like, like a white person will blue veins. I keep rid of up yet. I mean, like it's it was just kind of really free associative, like even more unhinged than. Lake has most playful stuff on the Carter wanted to. Yeah. I mean, I feel like at some point a rapper that is that prolific and that dense at some point is going to get a little bit tired of rapping in wanna do something else. I mean, like just sheer density, like number of words, spit over a career. A few are challenging Wayne. I mean, if you if you go through his entire catalogue, all the squad tapes all the dedications, no ceilings drought, all of his albums. I mean Jesus, that's like literally hundreds of thousands of words. There was also the rebirth album, which I know that you all serve. Remember which came out in soon after. Me. Just remember the cover. He's like sitting down legs spread with electric guitar. Believe just like, what is you doing? That was kind of. I mean that was also a very, very barren time for rap music general. Wayne is also had a number of other miss. I mean, he was one of those. He's another one long list of rappers that had their career broken up by jail time because he went to well, he pleaded guilty to gun possession in went to jail, went to Rikers in two thousand ten. And during that time was when rebirth was released that rock record that had you know the, the singles, prom, Queen, and drop the world that was featuring Eminem. And then also I'm not a human being came out that same year and also almost sold a million copies. That was, that's one ahead right above it on it. I have no recollection of I'm not a human being. So, yeah, it was another one of those things that was kind of cobbled together and floated to, you know, maintain Wayne's relevance while he was inside and. Tiger over until the Carter four, which arrived in two thousand eleven. He wrote some of it while at Rikers. Do you remember when six seven foot came out. I do. Was also, you know, that was kind of like the natural successor to a Milli in in sort of the rhyme patterns, I guess, and the dexterity of his flow. So that's easily the best song on that album. Right? Even if the Carter four is probably the worst of the Carters from end to end, yeah, I would say so after the Carter four there was I am not a human being to came out in two thousand thirteen in that one had riches. Fuck on it. The to change featuring record kind of like in the early two thousand tens. Wayne just plateaued for a while and then came the legal trouble where he sued Birdman for fifty one million dollars over unpaid album royalties holding the Carter, five hostage, etc. Etc. Cetera. And then of course, and of course, Birdman allegedly conspired allegedly. We should be clear to have Wayne's tour bus. Shot up. And that's actually in the news now because I think the case is being tried reopened or something thousand fifteen the summer of two thousand fifteen, which is really crazy because going back to that complex of you in from two thousand six, a large part of the interview was about the infamous little Wayne Birdman kiss photograph, and about how close little Wayne is was to baby. Now, he calls him his father. Obviously the the name of their duet home is life are like son. So to think about how badly that relationship has deteriorated over the years. It's quite star to to look at that interview now, right? And I mean, like in intermittently in the intervening time between then and now there have been kind of telegraphs towards reconciliation. Sometimes they're photographs smiling together, casually him and Drake, and bird van would all be in the same strip club in, you know, like nobody was fine. Acting and then things are bad. Again, you see another report about progressions in the legal case over what way must be fairly paid in the like. Also, there was after the Carter five was slated to be released in December of twenty four teen. There was in the months leading up to that incident on the bus way in tweeted a bunch of things about wanting to retire, not wanting to be on his label. And then there was the free we album which came out on twenty fifteen. That was a title exclusive. I'll forgive you if you missed it, missed it. But then I mean, like there was not really much for a long time. A couple of singles that didn't really stick when the Carter five was, you know, like announced to be releasing last the Friday before last. We were all just kind of like no way, but we should also note that in these intervening years where there was there was no Carter fi. Five. He was still Wayne was still popping up on big records like loyal Chris Brown bunch of DJ calendar records. So it wasn't like he was totally absent from the radio or from airplane webby. Right. Which kind of created this weird space where despite being in everyone's top-five conversations, he was still an underdog when the Carter five was you know, announced to be released. You know, it's interesting that you say that because you know, like they say, when you have a friend, for example, you you always picture them at the age which met them at. And for Wayne for rat fans for ladder offense for myself, I, I met Wayne. I mean, you know, figuratively when he was fifteen years old or fourteen even fifteen young hot boys, early cash money, you know, back that up, that type of thing. For that reason, he's kind of stayed in that permanent fifteen year old state in my mind that kind of youthful exuberance. And that's opposed as opposed to somebody like ho, for example, who was already in his mid twenties when he first became popular. And so I kind of have ho frozen in that reasonable doubt age. But for Wayne, I think he's able to he's been able to stay or appear young because most people remember him first as a precocious teenager, kind of tagging along with juvenile and and and the rest of cash money. And, and for that reason, I, I wouldn't necessarily say he's aged gracefully as it were in ramp, but he's eight. Aged in a hip hop way where he hasn't taken this like socially conscious left turn or changed the essence of who he is. He's remained kind of Wayne for twenty years now, and I think that that is really his. I mean, I guess Eminem in a way has done that as well. But you know, for Wayne it's worked and for imminent. It hasn't maybe when m maybe when Wayne is forty six, it aware thin. Yeah, but to the itself, which finally arrived last Friday. What were your first impressions? What was your first ocean moment? I guess I, oh shit moment was when I heard the familiar sound of a great New York classic record, special delivery, a g. debt. Swiss beats, quote, unquote, produce the record uproar for Wayne. I think it's track four. What the fuck though go five, four, three, two. I let one go spout. Spout grow. Your. Heard the little beeps special delivery and Wayne pop up on the track. That's when my ears really perked up. I think that uproar was, you know, one of the first records, I was very sure that way was fully in his bag because he was rapping about as gun like it was his wife again. Everybody does the the famous LA, Nina Serafin a girl. So a baby. Like it's, there's also this record says sleep with the gun and she don't snore. I was just like, okay, yes, thank you. I will take that. This is the thing, a wrap of two thousand eighteen incidentally that are sidebar that everything has to be hashtag challenge. Now, have you seen this uproar challenge have seen for challenge though, is the ain't gonna work? The tracksuit guy that was did a front flip off the back of his Kia started Harlem shaking. Yeah, basically, it's just a, you know, similar to the Shige challenge for my feelings for Drake, it's people just filming themselves jumping out of their car, mostly Harlem shaking since Harlem. Shake was the dance that's associated with g DEP special delivery, but it's, I don't think it's going to work as a challenge is because the Harlem not everybody can do the Harlem shake. It's a good point. It requires. You mentioned it's the OG Harlem shake. Yeah. Yeah, not the one. By our where you just kind of frantically move your limbs way. What was what was your first ocean moment? I was taken aback by dedicate just because the criminally underrated two thousand fifteen album. Colleague will two thousand fifteen colleague grove, which was the two chains little way. Joint project has a song on it called dedicate where to j just kind of wraps at length about wins importance of the game. And the story around it is that Wayne heard it for the first time and cried, which is great. I love to to to think about to change a little way as being really good friends. But on this record, they basically stretch chop up the sample of that song. If it wasn't for way, and it wouldn't be a lot of dues in the game include me and Wayne is just wrapping lake. I've, it's so so technically precise that was just like this is I was just like, wow, welcome. Welcome back. I was happy because on his last couple of projects releases whatever you wanna call him. He's kind of just sound drained. And this was like energetic and hungry again, which was great. Each verse is kind of like its own entity to like a different window into like a style or sound of rapping. So it really is like technical acuity immune. It's just not to sound too nerdy, but I think that's really what's on display here. I guess I should probably clear up that Mona Lisa's not the worse. The album guys, please stop tweeting me about it. Is that what you said? Is that what you said on Twitter? I said it in the in the exit survey. Oh, right. So basically, Kendrick, Lamar was a fan was aboard avowed fan of Lil Wayne before you know, he was talking about sugar, free, DJ, quick, etc. Etc. Etc. The first time they actually got to collab- was on that Mike will made it tape. This is like the two of them just being like, I'm the better effort on the better heifer for five minutes and twenty four seconds and it is amazing. But also like I, where am I gonna play this at. It's exhausting. It's it's definitely not a passive. Listen, let's with that. The last part where Kendrick Lamar's wrapping in his his narrative exasperated good kids voice every day, wake up with a difficult makeup in promise ticket to the movie in the mouth Jilin with Licko hundred floor. Fourth quarter, four minutes on the clock, mama with the bow Russi looking at him both up numbered tickets, probably on the internet block. That's really impressive. But are you listening to that in the car or you is that just in your hip phones while you're walking somewhere? I mean, there's actually a lot of features on this record including Ashanti Navia some names that we haven't heard in a while or her music from in a while. You know, you mentioned that the album was off delayed rumored to come out and didn't come out and so and that's been for years now. So there's a lot of songs on here. Even the Travis song which people were pointing at a Travis Scott tweet from years ago about being. Studio with Wayne and suggesting that that song came from that session from years ago. Basically what I'm getting at a lot of the music might actually be old or older the to me, that's not a bad thing. Well, this is most evident from records like five to twelve. There are twenty three songs on this album by the way two minutes long. Yeah, it's the same Runtime as The Lion King. From track five detract twelve feels uniquely like two thousand fourteen. Yep. It actually struck me. We were talking about the complex interview earlier in and Jay z and Wayne aging Jay z. was thirty six when kingdom come came out and Wayne is thirty six here for the release of Carter five. So it's interesting to note that at the that stay at these stages in their respective careers where they are because you wouldn't say that this is like a mature way now, would you know? I wouldn't say that, but I would say that this is more vulnerable than past works. See the album out show the last one of them's called, let it all work out samples, a Sampha soem called indecision, which is also really great. You should listen to that too, but not all rappers. If you wanna get deep on a record, just sample Sampha always works. Wayne basically admits to he said. Before that he shot himself when he was twelve scar on the side of his head recently said that it was an accident, but in more recent interviews has, you know, reveal that it's not an accident, but the first time he's really set it definitively I think is on this record. He describes finding his mom's gun, he put the barrel to his chest, and then he quote unquote woke up with blood all around him. Pistola. She always. Was that me so. Out of too much them. Yet really vivid and poignant the way he the story unfolds or the way he describes that attempt. So we asked this in the exit survey and you copped out of it, but I'm gonna ask you now put you on the spot now that we have Carter five now that you've absorbed it. Where does it fall in the quintet? What's the ranking? Right. It is comfortably above the Carter four, which is what I was hoping for at most is still think that the quarter to is the best way now of them followed by the Carter one, then the Carter three than quarter five than Carter for interesting. Interesting. I'm gonna go Carter one Carter three quarter to Carter five, four. When there's like a greatest hits Carter quintet set. I think that album will be unfunded -able you know what? I think that to, you know what? Maybe I'll just make him put it on Spotify. Maybe that should be this week, Spotify playlist do it Donny. Yes. Thank you very much for joining me to talk about the Carter and lighter flakes. Thank you. My. Guys take a break to talk about so knows beam. The smart compact sound bar for your TV in the newest addition to easy to use home sound system Sonos be. I really can't tell you enough about how it's made watch a movie so much more immersive. I don't want the sound to just around. I wanted in me and I was washing escape from New York the other night, and it sounded way better than it had any right to sound also being less, you play everything. You love for music and radios. TV podcast more even us airplay to enjoy sound from your iphone or ipad all with rich sound that fills the room, enjoyed deep bass and detailed stereo separation for music plus crystal, clear dialogue for TV and movies.

Step. Step, but if you don't want to bother setting up your speakers, Sonos will send someone to do it for you. That's right. If you live in any major metropolitan area up and running will have a Sonos expert deliver and set up your system. Absolutely free. I actually had somebody come and do this for me. The setup took probably all about a half hour. We had a lovely conversation about music in the weather. Just order from Sonos dot com. Select up and running at checkout. If you qualify. Okay. And now a radical shift, we're going to do recommendations with Chris Ryan who is back again to talk about some more punk music. Let's. Rear words like I'm just a meritous. Recommend her. She's the masthead. Chris Reid, executive producer. I mean, sorry, executive editor at the ring. The mogul person care about titles. You also in a punk band, I was a abandoned Boston short-lived that was inspired by the San Diego scream, hard core like scream, oh, seen like post hardcore scene. So like Antioch, arrow, angel hair. We were called, we were called crash activated, which is like forty five seconds songs and the eight. And I got thrown into a drum kit once spastic energy. Yeah. Yeah. You know, just like this podcast. Right? You are actually here to talk about something else a box at that arrived over the weekend? Yeah, thirty two track anthology of the post clash music or pre question music in some cases of one of my musical and cultural heroes, Joe Stromer and you know. For me, I'm very attracted to great amalgam meters like people who are able to draw on. Different seemingly divergent cultural strains, make them into something that like weaves together make sense. I think actually, that was one of the things that I was a namrd with by boarding, for instance, outside of music. And he saw the connections between cooking and music and film, and travel and stronger. I was able to bring together a lot of these different strains of of a sort of post World War Two cool, and we've them together to form this kind of image of this outsider rock poet. And he drew on things like rockabilly. He drew on dub. He drew on Irish folk music and Woody Guthrie and all this stuff. And he weaves it all together. You also the also drew on some early hip hop elements, especially when when the clash came to New York record Sandinista and they played. A basically a residency at a nightclub in Times Square called bonds, and they just set up shop. And I think they had gray master flash, a mill open for them, and they were, you know, infamously, like, you know, now you could go back and be like it's cultural tourism, but like they were obsessed with BLS the radio station back in New York. And we're just like making tapes of the radio shows of alert and stuff like that. And that's the thing that you you gotta low about jobs drummer is whether or not you think some of his lungs are better than others. He was just this relentlessly curious person, and it's something that I think in the internet age, it's a little bit different because like all this stuff is kind of at our fingertips, you know, and all this stuff then gets put through the stranger of our social media accounts and being like, oh, like I can just feel like this is what I like. And I can just say, this is what I like, you know, but to magin yourself as like this person before any of that was possible. And like you take you, for example. And you like Manchester United and you like anime and you like New Orleans rap music and you like all this stuff? Yeah. But to imagine like a figure coming along that somehow like funds all of this things. That's how when I was seventeen or eighteen, I got into his music and I was like, so Carl Perkins, Jim Jarmusch, Sergio Leone punk rock Lee Perry and hip are all cool at the same time in the same person that's like an unbelievable package, you know? And that's that was sort of what really drew me to him. You know, like we can talk about the clash if you want to. But this box, it's called Ohio one, which is a reference to his pre clash ban. The one wonders. It's basically spans what he did after the clash and the class kind of like crashed and burned pretty bad with cut the crap, which was basically not the clash. It was just Stromer and nobody like that record. And then he basically made a album called earthquake weather which was very poorly received and is essentially like a record that's made by a ghost in even on the cover the album. It's him. I think it's in Los Angeles. He's standing on a diving board and he shot in silhouette against all these palm trees and just looks like an apparition there is like it's like a facsimile of what you want. Joe Stromer rock record to be. And you know, he went through this period of time that was known as his wilderness years where he's kinda like making soundtracks amid a soundtrack, you'll much about Alex Cox, Alex director of repo, man. Okay. Repo, man, and he's like, oh shit. This guy's going to be like this big deal filmmaker. And then he like kind of like just goes off off the menu and makes this movie called Walker, which is Ed Harris in eighteen fifty seven playing a southern like farmer rancher rich, southern guy who decides to elect himself president of Nicaragua and raise an army and go to Nicaragua. But it's basically allegory about the contra situation. Well, and Stromer did this like crazy spaghetti western score for the movie. He then started on Alex, Alex Cox, literally spaghetti. Western movie just called straight to hell, which is just Joe Stromer like and the Pogues in Mexico, like shooting each other drinking copious amounts of coffee. So he's doing these like weird experiments. But basically what happens in the mid nineties discovers ecstasy starts popping up at these music festivals in England, doing these things called Stromer Ville, which is essentially at these like campfire communities at Glastonbury where a bunch of musicians come by. They'll play Bongos and shit. And I, I remember when I was a teenager, this is happening. He's being the clash like like this is a punk like this isn't leather jackets. This isn't like spitting on on like Neo Nazis faces Ray. Just kind of the national aggression of artists that is, you know, more mellowed out in their later years by being extremely anti-establishment. Early on that the his later records were described when they were recorded. The recording sessions were described as being recorded in spliff soaked flag-draped, bunkers. Yeah. I just to see what the rigor was like if we. Draft poker in north London. What. Yeah, this is all useful. Useful context for me because my entire understanding of the clash you know, came from, I've I learned about them after a saw that two thousand eight movie was Tom Wilkinson who and interests elva Gerard Butler called rock and roll. And Tom Wilkinson son, Johnny quid cavalry, leader of the quid liquors he's a stand in front of his the MIR, and as the floor life mayor in childhood bedroom and saying Bank robber on the class. Yeah. Just like I need to know more and so it was. But I mean, like the accession stopped short after like a month. But yeah, I mean, as as obsessions do. So this like this dodgy tracks like his ups and downs, and there are demos there's music he did for soundtracks. There are covers of Bob Marley did that he did with Johnny cash. You know, he died suddenly at fifty after playing, like shortly after playing a gig of for striking firefighters in England where he and Mick Jones. Unofficially for one night only out of complete happenstance, reunited the clash and we lost him at a very at an age where I think that he would have had a really nice decade or two left of of kind of being this of father figure to music. And it's it's a real shame. And I think that his band that he had been in at that time Meskel domes- Caleros were starting to really find kind of their commercial and critical footing. People really starting to respond to their music there. They go to towns and play like five nights at like in Brooklyn or whatever. You know what I mean like there starting to get some momentum and he passed away very early and it's it's strange to read about him now because he just seems like it's not even like, oh, like it's on fashionable. It just seems like a set of ideals and ways of thinking about art and music that are almost extinct. Act like they asked him. Perry Farrell asked him to the, he offered the clash like five million bucks for like fifty gigs for palooza linking. You do this and you go on the law of palooza tour clash and give you five million dollars. And his response was it was pretty verbose, but is responsible if you're confronted with the choice to take one million dollars for the death of an artist, or you can live as an artist forever. You're gonna take this economic Shen. Which I really like that's corny now, but he is the best kind of corny. He actually believed shit. I definitely find that sort of bleeding heart commitment to an artistic ideal, very inspired. And in you know, Shorto manager who would rather lose five, four than win one. Nothing, you know? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. Go going for broke. So to speak. So on the box. Yes. What is the? I read some things about it. It was basically edited by Grammy winner. Peter, Jay Moore who said that he noticed some things that you know used to do with his demos where there was a lot of blank space on the tapes, but I don't know much about it. I haven't listened to it yet. Yeah, it's a little bit. There's there's a little bit of demos in there. There's some unreleased tracks. My favorite of those is blues on the river, which is nineteen Eighty-four kind of full. Punked jam. Clear and blew over. Flooding lane. There's a song on there from early Keanu, Reeves movie called permanent record. There's this trash city. That's really, really, really good. That's on this thing. There's a couple of Mescalero song, and that was when he was kind of going for this acid. Punk thing where basically he had discovered, ecstasy, discovered dance music had been hanging out with some people from the happy Mondays and the stone roses going to these festivals and tried to make this hybrid of dub dance music and punk rock that ultimately, I think you could probably put up against some like world beat music that you would hear in a cafe and not be that dissimilar, but like the when you listen to it outside of the context of like the world music phenomenon, that kind of swept America after a while like it sounds a little bit different and that has the Mescalero made some really great music. Like y'all Yala. If anybody saw these short lived David milch showed John from Cincinnati. The theme song from that that show is. Johnny Appleseed which is fucking awesome song and they're really, really good rock songs like coma girl, and he, he just did all these different things and he was able to slip in and out of all these different genres seamlessly and the and the box that really captures that really well, right. So it's like in its luster of his versatility as a, I mean, like we'll his chameleon tendencies as an artist and his lyrics are, are you know, throughout his career are so detailed there. So. Invested in the struggle between people versus institutions people versus like labor versus management? The the ninety nine versus the one percent. You know, I think it was interesting that he very much came of age at a time when the labor party was basically repudiated by conservativism in England and bachelor took over, and that's like the backdrop for the clash, the rise of the Tories and in England. I don't know what he would have thought of today, like. I would love to avert his records about about Brexit about about Trump about everything that was happening in the world today. What a what would you say is the the so that you've, I guess stuck with or have listened to the most from this box out over the weekend burning lights, which is a a song from an obscure movie called. I hired a contract killer. Only. Route on since. And it is at once about a drug muting long haul truck driver, but is also about the impossibility of leaving legacy and feeling like you're burning the candle at both ends and you leave, don't leave trace of yourself behind, you know what a song this song of mine that is like a favorite of on that is sort of like that provider Viney. Very much very similar. Is this? Does that song happened in a certain scene in the movie? Do you remember? I don't remember. I don't even know if I've seen. I don't even know if I've seen that movie, but I would recommend if people are really, really down do one checkout Walker and straight to hell. If you can't, because they're both like eighties movies, really like, wow, like seven people saw this movie. People were really on some. Stuff. So that was the spaghetti western that had spaghetti western and Walker is the movie about a guy deciding he runs Nicaragua and the eighteen fifties. So I would love to try and pitch that movie. Now, here's my idea Ed Harris just decides he runs the Korogwe. I got Joe Stromer on the soundtrack by the way, it's an allegory. Dollars dollars money. But back to the box, the the the you said that it basically describes or illustrates all these different eras, all these different things that just capable of doesn't move in chronological. Yeah. What would you say our favorite? If you had to choose one like press to do it, could you be able to choose your favorite? Joe? Myra. Aside from the clash? Yeah, that's tough. I mean, because his wilderness years were pretty extensive and there's not a lot of, I mean, by his own admission, he he really lacked confidence. I mean, for somebody who is looked upon as a sensually by some people as his generation's Bob Dylan, or would he Guthrie t basically was like, put out earthquake weather. I felt like the record label abandon it. Feel like critics hated it. And I had a, he essentially has like ten years where he doesn't feel any confidence at all. And even when he gets the Mescalero together, he's going around basically hat in hand, asking Allenby from creation and trying to get people to put these records out. And he finally gets Tim Armstrong from rancid to give him a check for the sort of distribution rights of the record. I think in America, but it was really hard for him to get his music off the ground. And you know, so it's, it's all defined by the struggle that he had throughout the post clash career. I think I re- I personally actually really like his last Mescalero record, not not the, it's called St. core, and it's got a couple of really, really good tracks. There's one. The Pearl Jam actually has been known to convert caller called the arms, aloft, and Aberdeen. Often Joe storm in the Meskel restrict core came out. Three. So I think these are the songs that he was finishing or still working on when when when he passed away, you know, some people are really, really, really into a global ago, but that's like almost a little too Bongo by a campfire for my tastes. There's some good songs on it. But I, I like rock art in the x Ray style, which is the first Mescalero Strecker all the most glares records could stuff on them. This is different type of lake Pasha's collection of music than say the larger commercial things like, say any of the posthumous Michael Jackson albums where you can't really tell what is what like who, which new producers are working on it, which would ever. Then there's also other posthumous albums, like, don't lose this pop Staples came out in twenty fifteen of Jeff tweedy basically made it so that a bunch of mono recordings from forever ago were basically made faithful to pops. Staple's style. Would you say that like the Starbucks that falls on a letter half of that were kind of like, this is everything that just was. I mean, I think it's supposed to be a document as much as it's supposed to be now any kind of cohesive album? I am. I really appreciate the fact that they sequenced it the way they wanted to rather than against some sort of chronology. But I think that what it's supposed to illustrate his relentless kind of wandering spirit and where he was always like pushing his music, but there was always this core to the resort. This incredible compass. His does moral compass about his music. That was about real people in real struggles and. Time has treated him. I think that people now look back at him in there. Like, you know, this was like a really important artist. This is, I think, like you were talking to me a little bit about the clash yesterday and we, you know, of course being you and Kevin Clark standing there and like me and Kevin, what's your top five clash songs than we listed like sixty two clash. The clash of been canonized to the point where you basically like I can listen to them for a year, and then I almost to take like a year off before he can go back and actually hear them. Again, I go through like these really intensely like pretty volved clash phases where I have like this playlists called Bank robber, which is just like all the clash stuff that love and all the stuff that informed it all this dumb and all this rockabilly that informative, but you can. I, it's it's like a museum piece at this point, almost London. One calling is like one of the five or six best rock records ever made. This is more like if you were walked up into an attic and someone through open this chest, and there was all these. Scraps of paper, but then there were some finished drawings, and there were some paintings, and then there were some videos and like you had like an artist's musings in whole. You know what I like about this phone collection kind of getting to look at their creative process, but also what's going on the head and just the hits misses. Yeah. Well, Chris, thank you very much to talk about. If you're out there, you should definitely watch straight to hell was it? So yeah, I would say this is your, this is your homework. If you haven't listened to the clash. Like do literally unsubscribe goes into the class. Don't do that. Sorry, mineral. And if you wanna watch some cool stuff, there's a great great clash documentary called west or the world. That's that's your absolute on ramp to understanding the clash. Then if you want to check out some Stromer stuff, the best movie he's in, I think, isn't mystery train direct by Jim, Jim Jarmusch, which is several different stories set in Memphis, all kind of about Elvis or people who think they're Elvis like are obsessed with Elvis. Joe, Joe summers in one of those sections of mystery train a love, mystery train. Then he did the soundtrack to this movie Walker, which is nuts and he's in straight to hell which is even more nuts. But check this check this box at. I think that there's a couple songs on here. Man that still go against anything. You wanna put up blues on the river coma girl. Y'all, ya'll, Johnny Appleseed, trash city, burning lights, like all these guys like I, I'd go up against anyone with with these law right there. You have it. Go listen to the Joe Stromer box set. That's it. That's all we got. Thank you so much for listening, special. Thanks to Donny walk and Chris Ryan for stopping by shadow my producers, Zach, MAC and Bobby Wagner.

Her hyun is writing on twitter. And then maga- says these numbers are getting out of control. What is going on there. He's not fixing a thing. Cnbc reported trump's administration's last minute policy changes. This is true. Social service providers can discriminate based on sexual orientation adoption can turn away same sex couples. Homeless shelters can turn away where teenagers just just a little. Hate on your way out. Three guys way out. Yeah and then by of course and be like a ranked and no but just on the way out. Just throw a little homophobia just to make sure that you know we. Yeah wow i mean xinyu you try to be collecting allies at this point because you might not have secret service right. Yeah who you taking a dump on. I mentioned my friend. Marcus from high school and we parted ways. I'd like one buddy in a lot of highschool and anyway i stand identity. We grow up. And i see him on the facebook writing stupid shed light so if i just pretend a girl. I'm a woman and my work. I can go to the women's bathroom like yes. Yeah how how sexy and fun. And i would say y'all yet to do which tell your boss your wife tell your co workers transgender talladega style. That and you could smell this feminine dumps all day long. I just on social media. He moved back to our own home town in somerset. Pennsylvania abroad Starting a new chapter. It thrilled me. Go there to begin a new chapter. You're fucked up. Yeah everybody. I'm back to- what what the only person in that neighborhood who went there for the first time was your dad in their adult life like he didn't grow up there. But we're pretty convinced that your dad is running away from something in hiding out. I think so i think so. Yeah like we're pretty sure. He burnt so much that he needed acres in between him. And whatever the fuck he did. Yeah i'll you know by the way i'll tell you the latest he he was gonna move into the same facility that my mom's at my mom has dementia. He was going to live on floor. Where you You get less care so he would pay less money. He's more self sufficient or is on paper Three or four days and then he said now. I can't I can't be here in left. And we knew because he was in the hospital again in somerset and my brother is on is the one that they call for emergency and called the brothers. Say no just letting you know He came in the hospital for another heart. Stand for he had chest pains and and they're talking. Because you know that your dad moved back to somerset from that that home. That's how we found out. Am i making sense. Yeah well. I really thought that he would last a while. I thought when you said he only lasted three or four days in the home because they kicked him out no joke. I thought it was because he's like. Oh these people have to talk to me here. These people have to interact with me. He's got an audience. He gets talked about god to whoever because at the start look at a nursing home. If you start a conversation about god you might get some participants. And then you realize you're talking to mr malley. This is a fucking data. I- legit thought that he got kicked out for being a nuisance. He could've actually because i knew he go there and tried to sell insurance and thank you. Have you know through his math. Ninety percent of these people are going to buy insurance. obviously under present them are about to die and they'd have to sit down and say you can't do that anymore. That could have happened right when he went to the da meetings. The drug addicts. Or whatever. i forget Why should really know that it's not. Da any any meetings so that he can sell to the addicts. This is the same thing this is like. Oh where are you going to find people who need this right there. So yeah he's like an. I'll stay with your mother and help her out when she needs in his his That's the end of this but like what could what reason could he have to leave. I don't we don't now because he didn't share it. That's coming out called the place later. There's no way a normal response. There's no way that it's gonna be like. Oh you know some people they. They move in for three to four days. Some elderly people pack up all of their belongings and give up their space and only last year for three or four days. Actually mr malley junior. It's very common. Don't expect that. I cannot see in what world. Now watch me be super wrong but something tells me your dad. Lets me be right a lot. Something tells me something does tell me well get a good night's sleep starts start with a good breakfast in. You won't be all over the place like like this magic spoon. I'm talking about cam.

It's just you know started being in the zeitgeist about. hey why. why aren't why isn't minimum wage. Fifteen dollars an hour everywhere and then you see people saying Because then everything would go up in price and you know these companies can't afford to do that. Meanwhile than that just means they're exploiting workers right. Yeah ally says speaking of minimum wage. Be nice to your servers. I gave decaf. People pissed me off. That's not so bad. What they're a little tired during the day. I did the opposite. I'm not exaggerating. I think a statute of limitations. I could say that now was that regular. yeah it is. That decaf dump. Faulk be nice hospital. I tried to kathleen time. It doesn't taste the same at all sudden. I don't know maybe because you're in a place where you're not making it to the consistency could just be off. I don't know they said. I made the best decaf. Some rich decaf insurance. Sure is thomas rates. If we raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. Then milk will cost one hundred dollars. A haircut will cost four golden buttons a new pair of shoes. That'll be a lack of a virgin hair. Sorry this is just how the economy works and there's nothing we can do about it. That math checks out. Kim says minimum wage increase.

Of course keeping girl. i'm listening to old episodes. Came across the interesting part. Where keith plays voicemail message from his dad so you can hear what my dad sounds like. It's episode five hundred fifty nine clean and sober starts at thirty five seconds in typical father malley style. He calls up keith to inform that bringing alcohol to the family gathering. I never drank some said. I didn't drink until i was in the military. But i'm the fun guy so he's nervous. I'm to bring alcohol to inform it. That bringing to the family gathering for kens graduation will not tolerate. I remember that not only. Did you not bring alcohol. It didn't happen. There is no of course. There wasn't a family union. There never is no. Because i don't think anybody in the family likes him think that he was making it difficult for us to put this party together so that it doesn't happen because there is no party. There's no friends who invited. Yeah and then. It'll be my fault. That i insisted on bringing alcohol. That's never happened. Yeah and i'm sure. And you know what i don't remember. Last week's homage remember show episode five hundred something. But i'm sure that he brought your mother into it to say how she's nervous now about bringing alcohol and that maybe we should just forget the whole thing. Because your mother's nervous right. Here's another one from bath motors. One he says just accidentally listened to rod. Moro's first time on keith. And the girl. That's episode one thousand one hundred twenty seven. I thought i might to a john f. o. Donald bench and at the end of the first one was you. Were doing standup. Submissions and roderick was one of them again at one minute thirty seconds beliefs in of those. Check those out with your vip packets. That's fun the last show we put out. I didn't notice until the little bit after. Thankfully somebody told me that the processor Saint like it's not my fault but it is program processes the show and it moved affairs. Everything she was saying two and a half seconds ahead of time so it looked like she was psychic. She really knew. And then there's no word spaces and whatnot. And i was able to fix it but i found out some people. They just went with it like. Did you feel high. Did you feel like oh fear. Rude som alex. She's always aware ruutel. Fear by stepping on top or ditto. Fear really seem psychic at for those of you who had that experience and decided to just keep listening. I really wanna hear from you. The details acid in it sounds normal. I love what you think. Drugs are a little psychic regarding that. Show with a fair. Pumpkin says i've seen a lot of horror and slasher movies ever pretty strong tolerance for gore. But you brought up armie hammer the actor. That apparently is a little sexual. Pervert he's into cannibalism. He likes to hold. He brags that he likes to hold animal beating animal hearts in his hands when armie hammer eight that peach full of come in that awful italian bicycle movie. I guess i didn't see every movie ever made by threw up in my seat. That was the single most disgusting thing i've ever seen on screen. Of course that dude wants barbecue. A woman. I don't know it made me think of shiloh. Both who. I loved the honey boy so much made me think of my family and you butcher his name more than i do. Alex trebek's lebow flabby. It depends when you take. All of those is in his name seriously. I pronounce revile He's he's moving pieces of a woman. I sai- okay. That's on netflix. Right now about a woman losing her baby and it's it's right in the beginning. That's by minute fucking in labor beginning. Yeah all all my fellow. I was in labor all reinforced. How much. I'm not going to have a baby. Holy shit and i know. I like to watch movies just with with no. I didn't watch the trailer. I didn't watch anything and some like this. looks like. she's gonna lose her baby. But i think really dragging us along for twenty minutes. I honestly can't tell if this movie was good or bad. I was angry at the end. Which probably can't be good. That's artem moves you at it moves. Imran me fucking slow. So now i know shaya shaya is a abuser. Physical and mental abuser. Very recently a comes out in the news. And so i'm watching this and i can't help but wonder what was ad libbed like when he took that medicine ball not The the exercise ball and he threw it out the woman that was smoking. It wasn't even fully on camera. And i'm like did he just did he. Just make that up Did that did that hit you at all. Did you think about no pun that you think about cheyenne like. Am in the news you are in. So i didn't. Because i always forget to match that up. You know like lucky. I silent trailers. My life was like which one But i did see. This is why. I the piece of the movie that i liked is how they show abusive relationship like he's not beating her all the time he so super sweet during the labor. He gives her what she needs. He backs off and they they like our good each other. And then he throws a fucking ball interface And you know. I don't want i don't want to Give up the other part. That's very clearly you suck but like how he can maintain his demeanor and his Charisma around other people so he just seems like a regular blue collar guy. Her mother doesn't like him because he's a blue collar guy and she wants you know somebody who's very financially well off but that's the only reason he's it's so beautiful in that way where it's not. He's the devil all the time. He always says the wrong thing. He makes things uncomfortable. It's more like why she nervous all the time. Why she so uppity why she so You know withheld whatever teaches china. They you know they depict him crying feeling emotion over this and less so her and i really like that but honestly i think it was over two hours and i don't need to see this abuse in real life in real time right and then when you're director a rate of one of these movies the movie comes out then it said chhaya. Shi'as is a abuser in real life. Are you the to go faulk. That's what this movie is. Oh yeah i would. Yeah i'd be mad like oh taints my movie. I didn't do it. Yeah but then also like. I wonder if it's because of hollywood. Instead they turn it around and take credit like we knew we saw something. We saw something. But you don't win the best acting award now of course in hollywood scar. You're not acting yet. who is you know. I am excited about this marathon by the way excited or nervous. I really am both. I think it's because i'm just about to solidify the schedule and that always makes me nervous. Always halfway through. Put together the schedule. And it's an entire twenty four hours every late twenty minutes or so we switch and so we're booking every twenty minutes and halfway through me scheduling. It ago i messed up the am pm. I messed up the am and pm. Oh my god. I have to start all over in iraq. Did i start over china behind for this. This is crazy. And then i get high. And i'm like no. This is the way to do it all right. We got the am and pm right. Of course we did. Of course we did. We know what to test the way that. I have speakers on instead of headphones. That's gonna be crazy for twenty four hours. They usually do all right. You take it off here and again. That's right because we're in the same room. Sometimes we take it off to breathe. Yeah you're you're clearing your closet out getting ready to stay there for twenty four full hours right. Yea just kind of putting in a little bit more equipment making sure that everything's gonna stay steady in it's actually zirk who's taking care of this and Because we're looking at the nooks and crannies and really trying to fit everything in right.

That's everything what the hell it's her kid's name is apple right. Yes that's the most normal thing she's ever done in her life. she's insufferable. Didn't you have a show on netflix. Right oh yeah. Yeah in your like once. When episode was about yoga one was about orgasm candles. I believe yeah. It was just people around her going as what we do. And you think like. She's neyla celebrity. I assume i don't know who is anymore. But i know her name. And i know how to go. It's gonna throw and nobody talked about it. Was we watched so many things in twenty twenty we were like netflix are jail. That's how privileged we were and nobody was like check this out just to laugh at twenty lake not even ironically not because she's a superstar. Not because of the outright like this is so crazy. I have to watch it now. We watched a couple of people with their tigers. Say crazy shit in funny american accents but not going no way joe exotic to be cleared did not get that part in. He was hoping for in fact he or somebody got him a limo outside the jail waiting for that part to come through. He watches the limo driver way through the yard. What did he ended up getting convicted for conforto. This whole thing was he hired somebody to kill the woman. I thought the woman hired someone to kill him know the whole time. There was nothing like that. She have a bad person. It's confusing because one person's a bigger piece of shit than the next but he he had a plot to kill carole. Baskin's what did she do. Not that i'm saying whatever. I just know that she did things to. Nobody likes ca. She kept trying to shut him down. Meanwhile she ran the exact same type of Hold the imprisoning tiger says for profit thing that he was doing that. I saw on the first episode. Which i think i watched like half of that was clear it was like oh my god look at the stuff that he's doing anyway. Welcome to my tiger layer. I liked. I assume she wears tiger print. I can't remember of course. He's the mysexy babies. I love these babies. They're not my animals. I burst the what you could be. Thinking is she. The it's understood that she may have killed her husband. Yes that okay. i'm not crazy. I forgot that great but not in jail or anything for that. That's just a. That's the theory in the family. Believes that as of you're y- you're likely to believe it. But that never went anywhere. Had he di. He's he's just missing. All of a sudden people are thinking. She fed him to the lions. Let's the first thing. I thought when you said he's missing. Where the fuck allen. It's supposedly like he was going to go on an airplane on some trip but they the logs don't really say that he went there now. People don't say she's saying this millionaire just left and that's it i don't know if he's millionaire but he's he had a lot of money if he just laughed but the that there's that is a dead end and so the family believes that she killed him. Let's say he did leave. Right thing came out. I assume they showed pictures of him. Yes and these guys became like some of the most famous people on earth. I know what joe tiger looks like. Or whatever and now he's still disappeared. Nobody knows what right right the he must really hate. His ex is like y- permanent tour by bitch right and then and there was no sign of anything not that he got on a plane or any she said you to the lions tigers fell few. Yes yes i feel like you can run a test on some land. But i don't know oh my god. These people are crazy. I could see why you guys watching. It was the best. It was the best one person bigger astle the next those was fantastic. Yeah think it starts with somebody. Losing an arm okay. Well now. we're at a party. Wow and it's one of those things where that wasn't the topic of was supposed to be something different. I think it was just about exotic animals and then they found this guy. Joe exotic was insane. They're like nope. You're my moving now. Anytime they tell you. Now what the fuck did you do that. You're the movie now right. You're alex trebek's then why are they interested in you documentary about me. What did you do earn. It did do the maderno vaccine. Then why do they wanna talk to you. That's the same as jerry. J what was that show springer. Yeah jerry springer if your current spouse or boyfriend or whatever is inviting you to go on jerry springer you fucked up right or or they fucked up but probably you fucked up to and there's gonna be some tests being taken and it's not the g you wish it was gd now. They probably didn't go on air to make a public apology to you about that. They're inviting you to come. Where limo to the airport. They give us a free trip to new york. Okay what are we gotta do. Think just sit on stage for a second. You're so upsetting okay. We just wanna see you. I can see that okay. Oh boy that's it reminds me of the movie that We saw it started being about children's party entertainers in new york which we used to be. So we're like oh let's create and then one of the children party entertainers was so interesting. Don very silly billy. We both worked with that. The whole movie became about him because his father was a convicted child molester. Okay and silly. Billy himself was like oh. Do you want some footage from our childhood is going to be about me. Let me tell you my story and it was this crazy. I think they're from great neck. Long island like where people move when they Get rich at because the school systems are so good right there. They're known for you. Know their public. Schools are like private schools because so many of the taxes. Go there and bubble bobble blondes. Very very rich. And this dude is having computer classes in the basement with a bunch of kids playing playing naked. Leapfrog silly billy. I'd like to talk to you about how you make balloon animals and magic for little kids around the city. Oh is that who your father is. Guess what we're now featuring you and it's called capturing the fragments that's just the title that's just the title when the movie comes out see like capturing my family name. That's a weird. This is going career so much my career in coming into your children's house and inviting the other children to come silly. Billy have have like the did one day. All the clients have to come and he's like the movies ready. I tell you how to talk to kids how to pool fake birthday cakes out of pants and then all sudden advantages gather round everybody in all fairness it was never him. It was his brother and his. We never got any weird kinda vibe. He never got any allegations. This wasn't about him. It was about his father and brother who obviously very very sick but You you're still the one doing kids parties holy shit kind of defending. Though his that his father and son he was a hated. The mom so much hated because she's like in this hell of like you know i married this dude. And that's what women do at the time and i can't leave but yeah all the kids were somehow like This vicious talking again fayza charm. Lester yeah in. I remember seeing this movie then. I think i worked for silly billy after. I'm not sure come. I think because i already in i remember knowing about this movie and then silly billy told me. What's your clown name. I my name be flipping. No good good clowns of two names unlike father tons boys and your brother tons boys but this is the biggest problem. No no no good. I saw you defending those creeps. But i went with flippy and by the way. You almost didn't hire me. Because i didn't have to promise i can think on it me too. I was working children's parties for ten years. I had a great reputation and and he was like. Oh giggles. no you need to names. Okay so then you you actually. This was good for your career. 'cause you fix your name and it was fucking flippy because you've got gotta do like. Yeah yeah everybody knows that. All right keel girl. Dot com slash. Vip every show we've ever done including the spin offs and we're being told to take a listen to cuban girl number seven you can see. I guess what i've been whacking off too.

And probably isn't all that bad for you on your host Joshua Davis and it's my job to bring you the most delicious Chinese slang words and the culture behind them today. We'll talking about slang words that you can use or that. You might here in the office but even if you don't work in a Chinese company I can attest that you'll run into these words in your where everyday life too so today's three words are Joe Joe Lil or nine. Am to nine PM. Six days a week Xiaojie. It's year shall shall google a cutesy way to address someone you don't know and goons aqualung workaholic to get the inside scoop on these words. I talked with Sophie a producer at Himalayas the podcasting APPs that hosts. MSG for free and by the way can also host your podcast for free to Hi Sophie. Hi Josh Hi everyone. Sophie does a lot of coordination between Shanghai and San Francisco and then a minute. She's going to give us some thoughts on the different communication styles. But first let's let's jump into the conversation Hollow Xiaoxia need three Gene Mama among war shoot Not Time among La shouldn't then shoe was why we should. Why should consult call? Now if you didn't follow all that don't worry Sophian I will break it all down for you but first. Let's hear a little bit of my conversation with her about direct and indirect communication. Do you find that you have to communicate with your Chinese colleagues and with your American colleagues and in a different way well that survey to get crashing. Thank you I can feel like Chinese. People are more indirect. Madam and people are more direct act. So let's let's get an example for example if I want to ask you for help if I say Sophie High Need Your help translating this document oh If you're an American colleague how might you reply to that. Yeah choose is. I don't have time showing American environment. I will say A. Oh Sorry Josh. I don't have time right now. Okay that's it. It's very direct. You don't have time and so the sentence that you say is I don't have time y'all yeah like it. I understand that so now. If you're a Chinese colleague who doesn't have time to help me. How might you respond to that? Yeah so I was say. Oh sorry Josh I really want to help you you but right now I have my job Can I e Lehto. Maybe I have. I have time to help you. Hi It's Josh from the editing room. I wanted to give you a Chinese version of that sentence which is basically. I don't have time now. Maybe later was since I may sure. Diene Kannung among wikipedia. By the first part was in Thi- Matiur Zhen Walk is me since I is right now. May means don't don't or don't have and shirt gene is time so I right now don't have time was since I may sure. Okay okay the Second Sentence Conan Wadi Quran is maybe which is where the cultural differences. Come in so feel talk about that in a minute. So just couldn't on means maybe okay now. Why nedian is literally late? One bit or a little bit later and at the end Bah is is a particle that frames the whole sentence as a suggestion so in English. Maybe later in Chinese kannung widen so altogether gather. I don't have time right now. Maybe later is was she ends. I may shirts in Conan Wide Yamba. Okay back to the show but that also sounds very direct to me because if you do have time later you still just told them. Maybe I'll help you later right. Yeah I told you maybe but actually I feel like okay. I don't really want you tricked me. I don't want to be so ming the I just don't want to hurt you. Fading right so instead of saying no you say not right now maybe later and as an American what I heard was maybe sophie will help me later. But what you're saying thing. Is that the Chinese colleague. Might say this to mean. I can't help you and I'm hoping that you won't ask me again. Yes we can say this things in China maybe can lead to miss and standing. Because maybe someone like Josh will be waiting for me right but actually I'm not going to help you. I feel I can maybe might be could be when this is his words in USA. They feel like they really don't know what they won't do do that. In China I feel like they actually don't want to know they don't want how you use may be yes so sort of using vagueness to end end situation instead of using vagueness because they really don't know who are you ready to start sharing some of this great workplace slang can use Chinese Office orw Chinese colleagues all right.

Actually we will use this word while way are at work because if someone like a salads I you may be not sure she or he is older or like younger than you are. This is the first association a second is like this make like your relationship is liberty closer yet and we use this worse. The one we want to someone wants to do a favor. Could you help me your buttering them up right right. Yes you're being a little bit cute But it sounds like if it's gonNA butter them up that means it's like a compliment right does it. Does it make people feel good I I think feel like when they heard you call them shall jd. As if you're like I feel like I'm very young active. And Yeah Hi. It's Joshua editing room. It just occurred to me that Sophie and I never specifically said that Xiaoxia Tia shall is great for people who are on the same level level. Is You or below your level in your office. Don't use it to address your boss. It might be seen as taking your boss too lightly even if they're pretty laid back person and also because this is a slang word it might not be accepted in all offices so if you want to know if your office is casual enough for this word just listen for awhile and if we're here anyone else use it you're good to go okay. Back to the show them. So if you're going to use if you see a female co worker uh-huh and you don't know if they're older than you or younger than you and you need to ask them to help you with something like maybe they work in finance and you need them to sign off on on some papers How would you do that? Saudis Yeah Nikolay Bauman Sally it's Ne- Courier Bungoma. Aw social jet jet is hey girl kind of I guess me clearly you can bang among war help me And in mom exit a question. So Hey girlie can you help me may sound Pungwe MA Yeah so often lazy. Maybe they don't have any kids to fishy so hold on. We started from a place where you you were being nice and making people feel good and now we're talking about. You're taking away their excuses to nine you the work that they do yeah the they will give view some answer. They won't say all now I don't have time to say okay. Let me see Because you're you're treating them it's it's it's weird because if I were to address an American Co worker with the sort of cutesy Hey Bro I think that would make them actually predisposed to not help me. That sort of fake not really fake but forced familiarity. I think turns a lot of Americans off. But you're saying that it works both for women and for men this sort of need a very easy to change your not worse allies. Shell Google Right. Did you feel when you speak this outwards. You feel like you can't really be very cute as well and active like sal good girls Guga. Yeah you count how to ten year tally with off. Yea The word itself is cute and funny how the sound of the words contributes to the meaning of the word. It makes everyone involved. I feel kind of cute. So you know Like Josiah Audio Gone Sawyer Radio Hearts so we use plenty of like Ken of this words in internet company. This is a very kempson thought about that. In that sort of high pressure environment does in a way sort of foster these cutesy words. He's cutesy ways of talking as sort of a way to relieve the pressure to give a little bit of relief to each other. Yeah suppose Speaking of working too much our final word our third word is gone own. Saw Quam gone all wrong. What does this mean cone? Zoysia job is crazy so job crazy jaw. AH PLACES AIn't in English should be walk. Hannukah yet workaholic. Someone who's crazy for their work so just like an English we would say he is a workaholic. So it's very easy to transfer Chinese power. Sugar go calm. Yeah TA is he. Yeah sure sure is good here means like A. It's a measure word and if you want to know more about measure words I won't teach you. That's that's in your textbook but ah here. It's functioning as the word a as an article tie shirt. Good Gonzo gone. He is a work crazy person. He's a workaholic. Doc Young you can. Even we can review whatever learn by now is Joe. Joe Leo you can say Pasha Joel is also work Certain say Toss Tasha Joleon means he has. He's the person who has that work schedule. Maybe he likes it. Maybe he doesn't like it. We don't know from the sentence but if you say Tash Erkaban's Aqualung along that means. He is a workaholic. And even if his boss didn't ask him to. Joe Joe Leo. He probably would anyway. He has definitely all right so Let's review these three words right. Quick we have Joe Joe Lil which means work from nine. AM and close working. I nine PM and woke safe day in wake. Yeah then we have shouts and shall google which is just a cutesy way to address someone you don't know usually And the last one is going to a long which is walk hottick. Yeah Workaholic Right now. So free we have these three words but you know I think it would just be really useful if if we use them in a conversation why outages to beginning conversation. That's an excellent idea. So here we go hollow Xiaoxia take me through eighteen mama and now war shoot. Saw Not time on Laba should dance. Thanks you was what we should wash it. Console calm laughing. Do you feel this sentence is true for you. Nah Aw yeah she'll just making me like create cozy season right. Now that's true. I'm sorry I started. Put you on the spot. But but let's explain what these what these things mean as. What have you read each line? And I will explain what they mean harlow saves yet utility Mama so Hallo is a cutesy Chinese way of saying hello. Saudi Arabia is a girl in this case. I think these two people know each other but you can still sort of be cutesy with your friends and call all your friends shall gates here or sell good good and it's still kind of cutesy for them and then need to eighteen mama knee. Is You to eighteen lately lately. Mong busy and Ma is a question so need switching Mama is are you busy lately and the next sentences hung mom was shoot. Choice among hon is very and among busy so very busy Washer Joe Joe Lil. My job is his twelve hours a day. Six days a week sat official hot. Hi It's Josh from the editing room. I just realized that Sufi Calls Me Shoo Wa sometimes times. That's my Chinese name. Joe Shoo Wa. which is a very proper sounding Chinese name but it comes from my English name Joshua so when she says she wa? That's what she means. Sorry about that Okay back to the show not Kamala Yeah is the same as an English and then Nah a Thai Mong la by not means well then or that's An Tie Mung La. Mum is busy but if it had tie hi in front and a little on the end that means it's too busy not time Mung Abba while that that's too busy Shoulda then shores. You SHOULDA is yes Dan.

NNJ 125 Shenanigans
"So we got another new theme song. And this thanks to one man symphony, so this is going to start some kind of like competition to see who can make the coolest. Theme Song from Japan. I'm open to it because again. This is an area have zero talent. Please keep sending them in. You can send them in directly to me. Of. podcast at gmail.com, you could send them to twitter or something. Else I don't know there's lots of ways to get in touch with all that information's at the end, and then there's also the voice link Dot FM thing. You can click the link. In the show description I'm going to try to not do transition. Some people have told me they don't like to transition at the deduct. I've explained before. It's because I don't necessarily record this all at once, so. Transitioning from one story to the next story sometimes seems abrupt. If there's no transition so this week, no transitions just to see how it feels for me after I listen to the episode. I bet. I go back to the transitions of some sort. Maybe I'll get a softer one or something. But the problem is. Because they don't record this all in one go and it's not scripted. The segue between one transition to another is essentially nonexistent, and that was my work around. I'm just GONNA. See how it feels to have nothing. Just let go bump from one straight to the next story. The secondary problem is. It's then very hard for me to move. Let's say later segment to the front. If I actually do a Segue, have less ability to take two stories that match or similar. Put them together. The these are my promise. Don't use. The episode and thank you to one man symphony for this week. Seems theme song actually have about three or four, so I might actually be trying out a couple over the next few weeks. To this is a sad note to start and not sad as it'll make you feel sad, it's more sad. Look at how pathetic I am because for Lil bit of time. In order to try to increase the profile of the podcast. Maybe get more people to listen. I get more people on board. I was actually considering a twitter like hot girl of the week. Because I knew basically. Guys would go for that, and then they would start listening to podcast and one thing I've learned about habits is. If you get people to do things a few times like I think the number, they actually said it's twelve can get someone to do something twelve times in a row. Then it starts to become a habit so your goal. If you want to change, habit in life is just trying to do it ten times, and then your body and your mind will start to go well. That's just what we do now. So for about. I was thinking six months I was going to do like hot girl the week and connected to a linked to the podcast and then trick. Befuddled men. Into, clicking the link, and then maybe listening to a podcast and gaining listeners that way. Because apparently I'm a sad attention horror, and but that's also really fundamental marketing. But I've decided against it not because there isn't plenty of material available on the Internet, because twitter is just rife. With hot girls, and it would of course to stick with the Japanese theme of the podcast Primarily, like Japanese cost, players and stuff. I decided against it because apparently I have principles which I didn't know until this. I thought you know whatever it gets people to listen and grows the podcast that's. Fine. I thought, but apparently not. Fish on the other hand. Don't have any problem with this. We've talked about fish banging. I think it was a couple of weeks ago, about how tuna were like getting it on and restock in themselves, and then Japan is like we'll. Can we eat all that extra? That's come back not extra yet because they're still trying to get back to minimum numbers. Using germ stem cells, so we've heard about stem cells. These are germ stem cells I honestly can't tell you the difference of the article I read did explain it, but got a little too in depth for my. Bachelor of Arts. Brain, so I kinda just moved on. I know they're using stem cells. Using that to create baby fish to scientists managed to spawn one thousand seven hundred fish. Making both the sperm and the egg. From just one male. So again, no idea how they do that. The Way was written, though said both the sperm the egg from just one male, so I'm assuming Naxi Mental. The sperm from a male and the egg from single female I actually have to because again I don't know enough about this. I can't judge the accuracy of the article and I'm actually sending the person who wrote the article. I read. Put more time into it than I did because. The level of research you get if it's not about Shenanigans I'm probably not researching it as much as you think I should. Right now they're using these tiny fish to do it. And what they WANNA do is actually aim it towards Bluefin. Tuna saw the tuna that we had with that agency two weeks ago, then they can create basically a couple thousand fish per every fish. They can get their hands on. and. Then Japan can just over-fish as much as they want. Because that is actually the ultimate goal is to have so many fish available that overfishing is no longer thing. Probably they wouldn't be out in the wild as much just sort of a fish farm, which that is to me where fishing and growing our food should be if you want to eat something, I think you should grow it meet so if you want. To eat beef, you should have. Cows and a farm. View on eat fish. You should have a fish farm. This is getting step towards that. To create the germ stem cells, they need to catch adult fish. Turns out from one female. You can get two thousand five hundred eggs, and one male can have twelve oaks sperm. I don't know if I'm supposed to feel inadequate by that, but just to be safe. I made sure I felt a little. You know this a-rated. There has been ninety percent success rate in fertilization, a seventy percent success rate in spawning. So of the two thousand five hundred. Seventy percent will end up being actual fish that will move on to the next stage in life, which is to be eaten. Just kind of the whole point, so don't feel bad for those fish. It's actually to say the ocean way some really on board with this Japan in an attempt to curb corona virus is proposing staggered holidays. This isn't a new thing. If you listen to engineers Japan last year. You actually heard me talk about staggered holidays, not necessarily for disease control but for congestion. Not, your nose, but actually traffic congestion. One of the big problems is everyone in. Japan gets the exact same set of holidays, which means any holiday destination is just jack full of people. And the roads are inundated, and you can't anywhere and everything super expensive for the holiday period. And so I was actually saying it would be better if people took holidays at different times, because then there would be tourism all year round. Things. The price would kind of even out. It would might be more expensive in general rate like off season, but. Generally the price wouldn't be jacked up ten times during one week of the year when everyone gets a holiday. The government actually suggested this as well, but now they have another motivation it saying look crowds are a problem. Things like corona virus are still an issue. We don't want everyone out at the same place at the same time, so staggered holidays, so it actually would now solve two problems that one it would mean less congestion on the road, less traffic and lower prices and lower the risk of getting corona virus travel is down by tourists ninety nine point nine percent so. So they had numbers on how many people actually came to Japan? Of course, it was incredibly small because no one was allowed to travel. You weren't allowed to get into Japan's. That's actually the first problem, so they are saying. Domestic travel is the key to recovery, so we need people in Japan to do in Japan tourism to spend their Japanese yen in Japan so that they can actually get the economy rolling again. They're also come up with an interesting thing where. Way Interesting in that, it's like a horrible idea and I would never want to do it. They're talking about workstations now. There's a word you never want to hear. And the idea is that. You, are an office, worker and teleworking become a very normal thing, so everyone in the education sector is using zoom. A lot of companies are using Google meet, and basically now every company has some kind of online software meeting service, so the idea. Is that you as a worker now go to a vacation locale. Do your days work from that vacation, but then as you get off work, you know I guess at the beach in the mountains wherever you prefer to be, I would never go to a beach because I'm the whitest men who ever lived and I would burn within seconds, so I would probably be up in a mountain somewhere. As soon as I say that I, immediately go probably poor Internet connection because that's the reason I go there. was, let's so you go to a resort. The resorts going to have good Internet. You go there. You work now. The idea is that you get off work at five o'clock six o'clock. And you're not going home. You're actually in a resort. You can go have a nice dinner. You can have a nice evening. You Get up and you spend a couple of days in the rotation, so it's actually not the worst idea is the idea of linking work to a vacation place kind of takes away from the vacation place, but if you actually want to look at it positive, you can see the appeal the appeal of when I finished my day's work I'm now in this new interesting place with lots of stuff I could do. So these are suggestions from the Japanese government. To Japan? In general, of course, they can't impose this on people. So there's no no one has any idea of this actually going to happen or be successful, but the staggered holidays. If I had any say in it I would absolutely. Push it because I think that would help everybody across the board. And, I think people just have better holidays with not every single place being packed to the Gills. That might actually relate to our earlier fish story packed to the Gills. An Ex. Justice Minister in Japan was recently arrested for vote buying. And just like the toilet. Bang in story from the previous week, where the wife of the guy who was cheating on her by having sex with people in toilets, she went online and apologized and I was talking about the apology culture like even like the victim. In many cases, kind of has to apologize. The Big One was a couple years ago, where a girl was attacked, one of these idols was attacked, and she apologized to the audience for the trouble she had caused because it's very stressful for everyone who's paying attention to the story and for a West Person. This is ridiculous in honestly in that case, it was just out of bounds, but Japan's apology. Culture is very strong. So obvious Prime Minister Abe actually had to go on TV. And he had to apologize to the nation for hiring this guy now. He didn't know we're GONNA assume he didn't know the guy was like going to buy votes when he hired him. He knew that type of person maybe not. In the West, they would condemn the action. Move on and say it's not my responsibility. I'm no longer that personnel that I found out. They did a bad thing. Japan the prime. Minister actually apologized for approving him in the first place season. I shouldn't have hired someone who such like lax morals. So I apologize to you the country. I was trying to find out how much a single vote costs. You assume because you want a volume actually per capita. Each vote couldn't cost that much the. pair. It's actually a man and his wife. The Justice Minister and she was a politician to. They were both doing this. It was kind of like a team effort. In total, it seems they spent thirty million. It's about two hundred and eighty thousand dollars American. And gave that thirty million to one hundred people. So, this is part of the vote-buying scam. Now the thing is they're spending three hundred thousand yen per person they're giving money to. But, of course, they're not just trying to get one hundred votes. They were giving those. Packages of money to other politicians and I think what they were trying to do is get their support so that. Those politicians would either support them and their votes, and if this is an election year, you know, turn their constituent constituency towards these people who are trying to buy the votes in the first place, so I didn't actually get a good number. It costs three hundred thousand yen to basically by a politician. Maybe politicians vote. And then you don't know. How long did the future does that go? Is that every single time you have to give them three hundred thousand yen. Is it I? Give you a lump sum of three hundred thousand you now in that counts for like three votes or ten votes like who knows. The deal, not being clear just. Sort of the point of nefarious dealings. Men was really difficult because that was the bit I suddenly became interested in when we were talking about cocaine and stuff, I actually wanted to find out. How much do you spend on cocaine and Japan versus other countries because it's like extra illegal here? And it turned out. It was like ten fifteen twenty times more. Honestly, it seems like a small some, but I think it was basically an initial payment that was supposed to go into the future whether they planned on. Continue paying them, or if this was just like a Habe, my friend money that's left to be seen if there are more details, come out on that. I will follow up on. That I will do research on that. Because I really do want to know. How much does it cost to buy a single person's vote? Union glow. Making washable masks now. Uniqlo's a big company in Japan. I, it's actually moved into other countries. You've probably heard of it. They make bland close, but they're purposely that way, so they're actually very functional flexible. They can match into other outfits, really well a lot of people I know where almost exclusively all unical clothes all the time. Because again you'd have a white t shirt and jeans pants and in a black shirt. It all matches its really simple that where? that's made it incredibly popular and with limb, minimal branding means that it's actually very chic. Mike, Again, having no labels or tags on, it actually makes it very clear that you know this is a mysterious cool thing. That's actually giving them a lot of credit. Because really this having no marks on it means it's just sort of functional anyways. That's not the point at all. They decided they're gonNA. Put Washable mass being big thing right now again. Mass were not unusual to be worn in Japan, anyways especially during allergies now with covid nineteen. You got a lot of people who wear masks all the time just to be safe. My Office is still implementing all masks all the time policy which I approve of. My daughter made masks which were great when it was cooler, but now the problem is, it's getting warmer. The mashed were quite thick and heavy. I'm actually finding. It's sometimes hard to breathe. I need to get some lighter mass. I was actually going hold. These might be good. These are using the breathable fabric errorism, which they actually have made a set of underwear out of so the whole point. Is that primarily women's underwear? They're actually quite tight. And if it's cotton and stuff, it doesn't breathe as well. You get a sweaty bud crack and I think we all suffer from that. In two different ways, the Arizona one breeze more You'll get less sweaty around your butt. Crack Area So they're using the same fabric is in the underwear and making the mass out of the naming washable is really nice, because it means you can use them again and again and again the problem is of course that means everyone wants them, and they crash the website on the first day, and people were lining up, which is of course, the first problem because covid nineteen social distancing lines in Japan. Those things don't align very well. Three masks cost nine hundred and nine hundred. And there are three styles altogether. Overall, this seems like a pretty good deal. You're not getting ripped off. You. Go doesn't rip you off. They have fairly solid quality clothing at a reasonable price, so the masks again. This was kind of the expectation. They aren't going to be ripping you off. Be like a million dollars per mass masks are available again, so you can't get them in stores and stuff, but having a reusable one that you could buy one set, and then use that for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks is very appealing because you don't want to spend huge amounts of money on masks. Sort of relating to. The last two stories? telecommuting has become a fairly common thing, and it's new to Japan. This is not something common. Japan Japan had very much the idea to come into the office every day. Show your face. Be a good employee. Seventy percent of the people who have tele commuted in Japan WANNA keep telecommuting. Sixty eight point, two percent said the reason was. No commuting meant no stress or lower stress, so there was no stress from commuting. Fifty point six percent said if they could telecommute could live somewhere further away, and then they could find a cheaper place to live so I live really far away from any big city because I wanted to buy a house to house my family. If I lived close to the city, I would either have to get an apartment or a much smaller house. So I do this. I travel an hour and almost twenty minutes on the train every single day and every time I. Say that people are shocked, but the whole point was to save huge amounts of money and have a full sized house at the end of the day, and in ten more years. Probably have it paid off and if I haven't paid off I, have my own house that I can just sort of sit in, and you know. Shout at people to stay off my driveway and stuff. I don't have a lawn. It's going to have to be my driveway forty seven point seven percent. said they were able to care for their family. Forty two point four percent said they could do less overtime because if you're at home. You don't have to wait for the boss to leave free to leave. That's actually a really Japanese thing. You can't leave before the boss boss gets up, says goodnight. Everybody walks out then everyone else is allowed to get up and leave, which means the boss works late. You work even if you have no work to do if you're at home. If the boss is still at work, it does not matter so that's taken that off the table. Now you'll notice that the percentages didn't add up to one hundred and has because multiple answers were allowed, so don't worry about that. That was sixty percent like this, and then a percentage of that CPS and also liked something else. telecommuting is become a very popular thing in Japan and people seem to want to keep doing it. Since we're on technology and. Governments and work and things. The government has made a contact tracing APP use Bluetooth and like every other country where the government's coming out with a contact tracing up. People are very worried about privacy. So. The information though. Of course the first thing they said was, it does not collect personal data at all. No idea if that's true or not, but that's what the government's GonNa say the situation. If you are within one meter or less for fifteen minutes or more. You and that other person registers contact. And, then for fourteen days that record stays in the APP. If someone who meet that criteria test positive for virus. And registers in that APP, you will be notified, so you will know you have been in contact with someone who has ended up with Corona virus and you go get yourself checked out. You'll notice that last sentence, though someone test positive and has registered in the APP. is very difficult because for an APP like this to be effective. Seventy five percent of the population needs to have the APP. So doctors scientists, the people creating the technology. They're all saying. If we don't get seventy five percent of the population, this is essentially useless and with the privacy concerns in the lack of trust in the government, because this is being run by the government. The goal of seventy five percent saturation rates is very very unlikely. Since Ron Kovic News in. It's much lighter now, so I'm I'm actually weirdly. More likely to talk about it, because for a while, it was all covert news. It was getting a little depressing but it doesn't. It's starting to feel a little brighter. Yesterday they had twenty some cases in Tokyo. They're measuring Tokyo. Because that's where the case is still happening, it went down and they went up to forty s forty s forty s, and then it went down again. So there's sort of hit this lull and they're are trying to get that below into the bottoms, and then hopefully zero again just like new. Zealand seems to have been able to do. They found that different blood types. May Affect, how hard coverted hits you. So type A blood type. People are more likely to catch covid nineteen, so maybe they have less resistance to the virus. People with type O are less likely. China's found the same results. Many scientists are saying like this is still very shaky science. We don't have enough to actually prove that it's true, but so far multiple countries have come to the same sort of not necessarily conclusion, but they're seeing this as evidence as being a very possible thing, the blood type does have an impact on to whether or not you are susceptible to the covid nineteen. That's interesting. You can't your blood type though you I guess if you had a and you knew that you could be more careful. That would be fair. But at the end of the day you can't change your blood type, so it doesn't really mean anything what it does mean though is that the insane Japanese belief that blood type effects personality. Stuff is kind of reinforced. So Japan has essentially their horoscope systems not based on your star sign or your birthday. It's based on your blood types. You'd actually see morning shows, and they'll give their prediction. If you have type B, you're GonNa have a great day. And you meet people, and they tell their blood types, and they actually decide immediately whether the compatible or not without actually getting to know each other, and then like. If you watch anime and stuff, they do often give the blood type of the character. If they give some sort of stats, because for Japanese people that actually tells you what kind of person there. So a very serious and strict, and follows the rules, and be is the opposite of a and then a AB is a split personality. It's all very much like that, so they give you that information. You actually can draw character conclusions. Now my concern that that gives them more reason to believe that that's true. Blood type does have an effect. It is important which it is just not in the way they're saying. So, I mentioned shenanigans. What I'm talking about, this is one story and Yeah, so there was lady who's forty. She had sex with a middle school kid who was fourteen. The first detail was that they did it at seven thirty in the morning. So, he went over to her house in the knocked one out seven thirty am and I was. I guess you'd have to be fourteen to that much energy at seven thirty in the morning. Let's put it that way. She was arrested for violating the prefectural ordinance, regarding the healthy upbringing of youths. So there's a law for you. It's prefectural, so it probably means it's different prefecture prefecture, but overall there's the healthy upbringing of youths ordinance. Some version of that in every prefecture is you. Don't diddle kids just pretty good one to have on the books. She said I thought the boy was cute. I liked his face personality. There were no romantic feelings. That's a harsh little jab at the end they're! Like. Yeah, he was cute. He was a play. Thing I didn't actually feel anything for him. Though I don't know if that makes it better or worse like I was just using him. Is that better than I actually liked him. Because actually liked him and he's little kid. That's pretty gross, but I actually like just used him as a toy and he's a little kid. Okay this put it this way. They're both bad I can't actually decide which is worst because they're both bad. She's a bad lady. One of the things this is a multiple articles because very salacious news, so I got the four versions of the story. Turns out. The woman's house was a regular hangout from multiple boys. And yes, I bet it was because again. There were clearly shenanigans ongoing fourteen year old boys like nothing better than a little shenanigans. There are a lot of other questions that surround this that. I haven't gotten an answer to his lake. How do you find out your boys hanging out with this forty year old ladies health. When you find out that multiple boys are hanging out at this forty year old lady's House. Is that not weird to you? She had her own kids, but none of her kids were of the age of the boy she was dealing with. So she is been arrested. It's going to be interesting because this is sort of the double standard of men messing with a kid and a woman messing with the kid. Do they get treated the same way I actually think in Japan? This is one of the fairer aspects because I bet. She gets treated exactly like the men. No, the thing is men. They don't get particularly harsh punishments for doing these awful things. And I'm being really honest I'd just does not happen. So while I'm clearly not shying away from the dirty dirty news I'm not just going to be repeating the same stuff over and over again, so it's just like a guy took a picture up a skirt unless there's some interesting aspect won't be revisiting those stories again and again. If you're interested in those kinds of stories, you probably should go back to the earlier episodes and actually start from the beginning because you'll get all those episodes and all that kind of information at this point I don't WanNa talk about the same story over and over and over so I'm just trying to find ones with interesting aspects and. The abuser, being an older woman, and the kids hanging out at her house. That was all weird to me. And the parents of those kids, no, I guess. Did they know because yeah I guess you don't know where your kids are hanging all the time, but someone sooner or later found out. Like. Oh, you're hanging over at Mrs Yamaguchi's house well. Why Would be a fair question for a parent to have. To stay safe. Don't hang out at. Older ladies houses if they're gonNA attempt shenanigans on you. If you're going to do the shenanigans with the older lady. Can make sure everyone's wash their hands i. Stay safe.

Quickie: Carter V Review, Lil Wayne vs Kanye
"It's a Friday quickey here. Sorry, relate. We had the record at this morning because we had to bring my man Kay Marco into the mix. It's a three man show today. Casey radio. Today's episode is brought to you by de que m s if you haven't heard yet, we've been telling you about for the last couple of years. They are literally saving lives by finding bone marrow doctors for people, donors for people who might not have a chance at recovery baby Elias, he's only a year old along with twenty two other people who have recently been diagnosed with MS the rare genetic disease. He's got no immune system. So a cold or an infection could be devastating. He's a little guy though who's fighting strong, but he needs your help to find a bone marrow donor. You could save his life right now. Just think about all the things you take for granted playing outside playing sports, stood on his fun stuff. When you're growing up, he can't do any of that, but you can help them if you find a donor sign up now go to dot org for free swab kit. All you gotta do swab your cheeks, return. The kit decay. MS. They'll check the bone marrow registry and we'll see if you're a match if you get the call from decay MSA. Yes. And you could be a donor today. Save guys like baby allies or you can text barstool two, five, zero, five, five, five or go to decay m. s. dot. Dot org to find out if you are a donor that is three Kevin attitudes in a row that I will be participating in. Yes. This one for sure. Save lives kid. Who knows baby Elias, you know, he's got a fight ahead of them and if he didn't stay alive, you wouldn't be able to fucking listen to the Carter five. It took through how many years to come out. There are people who were probably suffering from diseases who are like God, I just want to hang on and time to listen to Carter five guess what happened? They fucking died. They fucking died and they didn't get to listen to Carter. Five. How long has it been waiting to put this out? He doesn't thirteen fourteen I heard about it. And then the whole, like lawsuit with with baby or whatever. Holding it hostage? Yeah. Why he sent me a, he's a big Drake's, low Wayne, STAN. He sent me this whole time line of it. And I mean, it is a if you are a die-hard Lil Wayne fan. This is a long time coming. This starts this dates back to two thousand eleven when the Carter four drops. So everything after Carter fours, like, all right, Carter five next Carter by that. And then it just became mix tapes and drama and fights, and lawsuits, and seizures, and Katie Couric interviews Wayne, no, Katy Kirk. Injuries before then because I remember I was at mardi gras and I was in college, and I said, MS Gedi, I'm gangs. One thousand times anytime anyone asks me anything stadium, gangs. I guess. So they finally make up. They're all good. Like I guess it was maybe a month ago. Birdman was came out on stage flat out said, I'm sorry, which was the most mature thing. The rat game has ever seen like there's been beef and there's been squashed like even recently Drake brings meek, mill onstage. Obviously it's cool, but baby was on stage and he was like, I just wanna say, I'm sorry. I apologize. Little Wayne. People forget they kiss on the lips. We're everyone's focused on Tom Brady now, baby and little. The I actually, I forgot just about baby and men. Me and Logan went to that party goes at the after they BMA's beam as that's what I was after the amaz went to the party and slim and baby were there. And I was like standing right next to the baby and he was talking to whoever the head of Republic records is, and he was standing there listening to him and the whole time just doing the hands thing. He got. He does real life. I was so excited. Really. Sitting there, listening to guys constantly rubbing his hands. I may. I, honestly, they are. So the cooler guys in the rap game or at least or you know, it important bad ass. You take note, you know their gift. You know their moves, you know their lines, you know everything. Where are you a little wing guy, Keith? I mean, we all are, but like you're, you're a big way. My favorite robbery of all time really say when he came out on stage at the patriots SuperBowl party, it was electric city. Almost more euphoric. Then coming back down twenty three hole because it was, I think we knew some people were there, but I don't think we knew Wayne was there. So he came out and this is like that. He was kind of like the whole team came out on stage and the whole team was like, I got to see this fucking stage. You know how you remember like very specific images of like VHS tape covers and DVD's and stuff you had when you were a kid and the and your mind. The block is hot album cover with him standing watching the cartoon firebomb. That's probably the the those original. I, I guess it was cash. Money was was cash, was juvenile when juvenile on them were? How is it cash money at that point, whatever record label that was, I don't know if it was called casper not their album. Mart was always ridiculous. Flames and money. Gold coins followed Illinois was the same Photoshop like people were just like mess around and Microsoft. And paying the same thing for each artist to like June now is the same as little way was the same as like with the big timers or the one of them that was, I mean, that's I feel like you gotta be you gotta have some miles on you into? No one little Wayne was like the just like the guy they were putting on features here, the kid back that Asom. Yeah, was he was so young and it was like juvenile was like popping, and then it was Manny freshman Birdman wrapping and they were like coming up. There was all these other guys on the crew. We'll throw a little rain out there and and it was like, oh, he's like fifteen. So he's kind of like a little bow joke, but hey, he must be like pretty good. If you put them on a song. Thirteen. When you dropped out of school at fourteen, he was like, you know, he was like an honor student straight a.'s like head of the drama club. Like really, they say that about everyone who drops out of school though. He went to university of Houston, graduate, whatever while I don't know. But they say that will Bella win. Let me just savant, which is very, there's so many subs. So many things you've heard about Wayne where I heard there was there was one thing when he would make albums by just torturing and he had an extra bus that was just a studio and he never made by. Yeah, you would just go in there and you have to be super smart to do that. And then he wasn't like guzzling lean is right now. He's been like in this lean induced haze for like a deck. He's like, Jesus. Oh, I mean he's died three times at least Bill Cosby, not Jesus Loewen I could use. I could see he twelve when he shot himself twelve. Remember that period where it was like a live like death watch for Lil Wayne. Yeah, we're just hanging reported Lil Wayne's death at least sometimes it's been on the plane having Caesar's that that's where Caesar came from the Caesar salad seizure. That was one of the all time. Twitter, screw ups when everyone was like, oh my God, low Wayne, how to seize. He got this. If I remember correctly, he like got on a plane. They had immediately because he had a seizure. He said he was fine gun. Another plan. In the same day which can't be placed getting on planes. You're not healthy man and just as whole. I mean, he's like he's Meany right? He's like five foot two. He's like diminutive. He's always little one hundred and thirty five pounds. I saw him at the Nassau Coliseum in what had to be the worst concert of all time. It was like Rick Ross, Loa Wayne and they, it was up the shitty. I mean, the Nassau Coliseum is the worst building on the planet. So amazing picturing you out this call and, and so it's get in. You had to go through the metal detectors and they just had like two metal detectors on like either end of the Coliseum. With the entrances, those just a line, like a thousand people out to the parking lot, and it was just like, wow, so Yankee Stadium? Yeah. Yeah, which makes that. I mean, the Nassau Coliseum. It should be like that it's a fucking bar in the middle of Long Island. No one knows what they're doing, but it was just like, well, we got to check all of you for guns, and I'm so we're all walking through these things. Why he went on a little stretch doing tours where he just basically got too fucked up every night to cancel it in the middle of the show. When I was at you, he came to like the arena there just didn't show up. Right, didn't come. Rappers the best you just get to do that? I didn't. I didn't go to the concert. So I I'm not speaking firsthand experience, but I remember I was out that night and everyone was complaining like he did. He just didn't come. And then we were at the club in Tallahassee Cubbies after that he was there. Was like, dude, you just didn't go to the concert where you do it the fucking bar man. That's like when you're in school, you couldn't play in the game that night. If you cut class because school, you know, you got to be there for the fun concert. You're going to be at a party afterwards Wayne. So what's I mean? Imagine this though? Like he gets the drop this album, big album. Twenty-three songs Carter five, huge fanfare not doing any work. I like the work has been done just how you. Blogs and drafts for like, put him up later, Chapelle Netflix, right? We'll give you twenty million dollars for an old stand up. Yours. So he gets to just drop this. He hasn't even working hard. It's not like he's been slaving away in the studio. I don't know if that takes away from the release. You know, usually people like this is the culmination of such hard work and it's like it was hard work, but it was like eight years ago, so I don't really care anymore. I hate the Twenty-three song thing. That's the other end to though I don't like the seven songs from Connie, but twenty three's like just a normal album, but they have to do it because of the streaming set up like the more songs you have the more streams and money you make like it makes sense. That's why like Drake did amigos. Does it have to do. Stop right spot. They also sell the merge with an album attached to it. So you buy album like they don't charge you for the album, but it just like you get an album. I got Travis Scott's Astro world, merchants, fire shirt, and then I got an Email to, and here's Spotify. I'm also didn't even open that Email. I mean, I get why they do it from like the streaming services take so much money off of it, so they have to do it. But like it sucks from a listener experience like it dropped midnight. I was tired, but I need to listen to everyone's talking about it and I'd stay up to like to listen to each song's twenty three. And I couldn't. I said, give me the top. Have someone have top ten dollars right in the morning on a put that on a play. Listen to this. I made the mistake of waiting until midnight and seeing all the buzz about it, and I did not want anybody. I can't be left out. I would've have been able to sleep. Fuck everyone's talking about this and I'm not. Do you like. Like the way like modern album releases versus like old school where it used to be like, we need to go get the CD or you would even like be there just download the actual songs versus now where it's just like that. Like what you just described, it drops. There's buzz. People are excited, but usually it's at like midnight or overnight. And there's a lot to stream through verses like, I guess you kinda us to be able to do it on your own time. It was just like when I get to the store and a fucking CD do it. I mean, it's definitely great how you can have it instantly and there's like social media, so you can instantly be in a conversation about it. That's definitely better waiting in line at best buy to buy the CD and like holding the CD in your hand and putting it in your disc man and like it's skipping every other song. I mean, that was awesome. Awesome. Love that. Love that. I mean, I like it. I don't like how there's so many songs now like how you can get it instantly. I remember the day that I downloaded my dad downloaded Napster for me and we'd download about it tired at a song that's that's willing to a lot of people have that as their first like pirates all forgot about dry. Yeah, of mine. I know my first my first cassette ever bought. If you wanna be my lover Spice Girls first, two, CDs, same time telcos starfish podcast, play water man. Jaylo on the six one, an eclectic mix. I always keep it guest. I remember. I feel like green day Dookie was like my first CD. I remember I remember I remember legal drug money lost boys was up there. That was a good one. That was when I was like a eight year old black kid. I don't. I don't like I've ever pretended I never wanted to know much about rap. When I liked a rapper. I fell in love like I was, I knew the country grammar out CD front toback. I knew every single word don't respect what Nellie used to do that was diamond, ten million records. Really. You had to go to a fucking storm by STAN online and even though diamond was million. Yeah. Oh, yeah, exactly. He for that was the country grammar album because I'd had ride with me and country grammar and only just so good house, Air Force One. So that was everything. That's like, I mean, that's there's not many who have gone diamond. I don't think rappers gone. Diamond is like a very exclusive sweat suit was good. It was ridiculous premise pose like. Like an Elliot's. Ridiculous. So where do you rank? Do you like Carter five So you probably have listened. I've given it like a one through like dug into it. I did the snippets last night. I've been listening at my desk today. I mean, it's good. It's not. I like I like middle-way in the best like early way in is obviously how he started. But then when his voice gets like deep Bernie gets older as when I like in the best, like as soon as this came out, the first thing I did was download the drought three. I said the drought three since I'm like, does your out to white drop at the job little Wayne, the drought during his mixed that he just threw out our his best stuff? Do I'd spent all I want to go to class. I spent all DAT Piff listening to low and he literally for that mix tape, just listen to the radio for awhile, recorded songs over the beats. And then he was like, I don't even know how many I came up with. Let's put it on a mix tape and they're like, you have three mix tapes of material are fucking put him at all. Yeah. Awesome. I mean as far as the car is I feel like car three is like the one, right? The main, the main considered like the hose, the hit song from the one that I think that had a bunch. I feel like that had the one that the song with Jay z. Mr. Carter. Had MRs officer shot had had a Milli. Yeah, lollipop when they have my car that I bought in college had a little Wayne CD in the in the player like they left in their, oh, blasted around. It was Carter's the Carter the car too because it started with a flying. Yeah. So that's the song that I would blast like cruising down frat row as eighteen year old white kid, and it was a on car car. Three had mister car, a Milli got money. MRs officer, let the beat build lollipop, let the be build. That is never real video when it's like a one shot with a orchestra. I don't know. There's there's a I, I don't think. Yeah, I think it is the official video for it and it just weighing like walking through a music studio of sorts. And that's how you let the Bill be be here. It'll be the beep Bill. Bits re rebirth was such trash, but everyone hated it so much that I decided that I would like it can try and drop the world on his one of his best. There's a flux pavilion will dub step remix of that song that I would encourage you download because that was on my like running workout mix back when I used to do those things. I. I mean, there was a time I feel like if you were growing up, if if you were of the right age for Wayne's prime, it was monster. It was. I think it's a big thing that at least Tyler actually tired to kind of debate a lot. He was kind of doing a little bit last time before I fell asleep where he's saying, you know, people try to tell me that Drake's peak was higher than Wayne's peak and it's it's not even clone strikes BUSTER, but Wayne was as March. People were concerned. Wait, Wayne was the only artist alive for like three or straight guys like Caleb, why we're right in that wheelhouse. No, he's absolutely the greatest like rapper and artists of all time, like no doubt about it. So this has been a long time coming, really if you really dig into the time line of the baby cash money, lawsuits the shootings, the tour bus that got shot up the Caesar's Caesar's. I mean, all of it, but I gotta say, based on all that, I feel like it's kind of anticlimactic. I don't know how many songs off of this people are going to be like banging forever. Yours your fucking hot, and, but that's like it's funny because I always get this debate with people about old average new rapid. Everyone's talking about uproar and it's like, well, that's special delivery from two thousand one. So it's good. And then it goes into the Travis Scott one, which I don't know if it's just because I love Travis Scott, but I think that's, that's my favorite one. That and what's other fucking when we were just talking about the one that I'd like highlight that throwback right wedding. What was it was he did a rap over like the too late to apologize remix stew. They do a high. A high pitched voice like that was can't be broken. Oh, yeah. Dope. And that was like, does just like explosive. The rest are Jackson lights. Like, I'm gonna listen to a more, but the rest were kind of filler to me. That's what I feel like I am, but you can't say that low Wayne is up there with Konya for like I tweeted out that it sounded like low Wayne made special delivery again in twenty two other songs were in my mentions all fired up and you click on them and they have little Wayne as their fucking Abby. Okay. Well, I know we're at, how'd you feel about your boy extend tossing on via non song? Number two, he s my boy. I mean ultimate takedown blog. I actually taken down a dead dude. Deserve it. People were telling me, I'm back after this week. I was back when I was Dan. So that guy's grave. I don't. I don't actually take it or leave it with XXX ten tussey own. I don't actually care about his music woman or the other. I want to be one of those guys. It's like, I'm not gonna listen to the song so he doesn't get the streams. I'm listen. Chris Brown song, Chris Brown's a scumbag, but absolutely man. He. Betters just win baby. Tiger Woods wins games matches. Good bucket. Chris Brown puts up beats and condensed go to go, doesn't matter. They always, I actually saw an interesting question. Got oppose. If there, if there's an like your favorite artists, is there anything they could do that would make make you read it off for good? Yeah. I mean, I would imagine if there's like if you see there's a video of of your favorite artists like murdering someone. Oh, I don't think I care Bill. Yeah, it'd be like murdered a child. Oh, child shorter to a girl. If murder girl, like Chris Brown, like killed Riano one beating her. Yeah. Okay. So a murder murdering, a guy, I wanna hear murderers. I automatically assume male on male violence because that's what it usually is. And some dude murder. All good, man. I'm fine or female murder. You're not listening. Probably same. No, I in even like probably. Beker in the practice argue to visit. Really. Anyway, I come. I would probably if we're being straight up in the trust tree, I will probably listen to whatever I want to listen to in the privacy of my own home, but about the bar for could dance into it. If you man. Tweet about Ted by say, this is songs fucking hot. There's vacuum here, but I be one of the things like like, Mike Tyson is a terrible terrible where I'll laugh at him. We all got a face tattoo, so it's fine. Yeah. Well, he's a hangover drum to drum to in the air tonight in the hangover and it was fine. There's really, I. I don't think we talked about a lot. I don't think anything is redeem -able. That's, hey, let's hope. Final verdict gimme a letter score Carter five. B. minus now because we didn't match Mona. Lisa. This is my favorite one yet, but that one I don't like Kendrick and I want to and I just don't that one I heard. He's bothers me. What's his name? Farm bitch, boy squarely skelly leak. That one in like twenty, whatever that was happening and he put out the livestream. He leaked that song like I'm excited about it. That was what two, three years ago. So I forgot until jail. Skelly. Yeah, he for for he's off. He's currently. He got big time jail time. I don't. I'm I was rich villain like him. That's what I would do that I do. He does because there's nothing better than having music before people. Have you heard this yet? Like I'm stream when you give someone a any recommendation? I think Dan actually wrote an article about it, blog about it. A few years ago, but how great news break knew someone. Yeah. And unfortunately he posted that blog rep for the bombing or Newtown right moments before I remember that. Cans. Yeah, ended up taking it down, but it was like he posted it at nine AM and it was a good news, bad news, tragic news, whatever. And then we, we stopped blogging that day. Right? So it wasn't a top was he ended up having to take it down, but it doesn't matter if it's news TV shows movies, you know. The l. someone else doesn't know it's the best thing in the world. Music is especially like yellow. I've heard that and it's fucking it's a banger. You haven't heard yet. Oh, why does that? Why peace still does the the, like the elite, the streams that aren't exactly legal many has. So that's what I used to do. I used to have it a week before everyone, and I became the guy that was like, oh, I heard that. That's not like doing that anymore. Like to wait till it's out so I don't get it with everybody. Why piece still does it? So at like the day before it comes out, he's tweeting about all the bangers and stuff, and I feel so fucking left out in lane. Right? And in reality he's just waiting to nobody because nobody knows what he's talking. You could do that to actually, yeah, next time, just all my God that to trust them, they dislike awesome. Oh, you, did you see the post Malone thing? No post Malone will if you googled the Carter five last night, all the top stories were that post Malone at the last minute, like literally sprinted to the studio to do a verse for the Carter five. And that was all of the headlines was posted loans on a post Malone's on it, and then it came out he's not. So that would have been cool. I would. I would have been also that would have been actually hanging out with our boy. Stud for Tommy. Living with him texts, Mike about that and be like, can you? He's very similar post Malone. He also almost keeps dying. Almost died on a plane just like little Wayne, I feel rockstar, there's their music and their style or kind of similar. Like I feel like those guys just get together with like singing rapping with live instruments, kind of like rock music, and they just get fucked up. He drinks his beer. He drinks his lean. They both almost die. You just watch my brain work in real time. You can do that. You look like Connie in the studio. That was that was maybe it's more that goes for that speaking guy near you see his tweet getting ahead of the fact that that qualifies you think if I was going to beat them tomorrow, he tweeted like Yandi is coming out. Coming out on the twenty ninth of Saturday, the twenty ninth we're gonna come in second to to Wayne and that's okay because the world just needs. Yeah, and Wayne going that I like you fucking hedging motherfucker that. But I mean, it's, I mean he's all thousand percent right way. No way will absolutely be number one. No, yes. You don't think so. No, I guarantee will. I would've said entrepreneurial. Your confidence has me down to like. The US or show car. If I do like huge numbers. Let's move that we want that. I don't know. I'm stained from the back because I, I don't know. I don't know how to gamble, so I don't know whatever you wanna bet. Well, I'll just prides the line. I say Kanye west said, I'll take the okay, healthy weight. All right. You're so confident. I'll take a little one. I don't know. So I just go with confidence. You seem very calm. Algebra people who've waiting. Barstools shirts. Nostalgia, please. I'll just say very, very big thing. No doubt, it's a fucking political figure. Now he's he's got Kardashian effect. He's got the music affect the art, the clothes effect. How how much how many tweets leading up to this week did you see even from Barcelona, poise, soap on about Carter five. You seen one about Ganga. Yeah, but I mean, there's a lot more than so employees. I don't. I think it's a good samples is a couple hundred people. I'm gonna. I've seen zero tweets since since I tweeted quote we, they went s very good point. I do think that like the there is less buzz for this kind of album. I don't know. I usually just put up last night. I listened to Carter five. I don't think many people going to do that with vonda I think, or. I'm gonna play this. Exactly. Like I played the rap, battle feud with you. Nate right down the middle play right down the middle, but beyond Kevin, Stanford. All right. We'll catch you guys on Monday. We'll find out who's right, who's wrong way in on Twitter, you think's going to win the weekend Yandi or codifies seven years in federal prison for Shirley just looks at him.

"Gilgamesh Pot five the great flood. Hello this is Richard and here we rejoin Gilgamesh. As he crosses the seas to meet new fish. Tim The far distant tuna fish team the far distant. The only human to have conquered death was sitting on a jetty by his home in the mouth of a Great River. He watched his trustees see. Captain bring his boats up along the water and he saw that he was bringing a passenger a great hulk of a man dressed in rags when the boat was near the sea. Captain leaped onto the jetty with the rope to more it and was shortly followed by his passenger tuna fish. Team looked the strange man up and down and said my locates you. What's a sorry state in your face is Pale? And you're wearing nothing but the skin of old lion what has happened to you and Gilgamesh replied what hasn't happened to me. Molly. Friend and Q. Was so powerful that he killed mountain. Lions with his bath. Hines he fought the bull of heaven even he could not avoid death and has now turned to clay for seven days and seven nights. I wept for him. But what good did that do? What hope have I do? Mesh King Splendid Iraq when death awaits me every day I have traveled great and dangerous distance defined you because I am told that you were the one human being who knows the secret of immortality. Now that I look at you you seem just like any other man. He would seem no different from me. How come the Gods chose you immortality? Deficient him looked at the king and smiled. You're really do dreadful. He said and I can only believe that you've suffered march. Well Gilgamesh since you've come all this way. I will tell. Ya everything old though. It is a secret. There was a time when I lived. In the city of Chirac on the banks of the River Euphrates. In those days the gods often strolled along the streets of Chirac. They enjoy the beautiful ten polls. The broad avenues the Green Square has the processions on the feasts held a net on over time. More and more people came to live in the city and should our park became Dante and data noisier and noisier and the gods like the city less and less they were disgusted by the stink and pollution and heaps of rubbish. The father of the Gods are new. Said he could stand it no longer. He called all the immortals to a council and declared that he wanted to wipe out the people of the F. before they made the entire world as ugly and horrible as the city of Chirac. The only question was how best to destroy humankind Nafta much discussion of plagues wars and famines. The gods decided in their wisdom to send a great flood. Bob There was one God. Aa The wise who did not want to wipe out humanity. Well not all of. That's anyway he had sworn off not to breathe a word of the gods plans to any human. He was careful not to break his promise. One night he sat outside my house in the city and whispered to the Wolves Lesson. Byu walls. He said a great Florida's coming tell Liam to abandon his life of luxury and seek survival for himself on his family. He must take you. Wolves apart and rebuild you into a bolt. The sides of the board should be equal in length and large enough to take on board a pair of every living type of animal not to mention every type of plant seed and enough food to last month and the boat needs a good roof with a hatchet to keep out the rain. That much time told him to hurry. We hear you wise aaagh replied the walls. And what will the people the city say? When he does this they will think he has lost his mind. Your master said air must say that he has done something to displease the my Giegold L. Lil and the team must leave the city. He is offered to take his house apart and move with all his possessions to live on the river with wise in the monning. The wolves whispered to me all that a the wise had told them during the night. I listened and I said I must do as the God has ordered. I call together my family and my servants until them. To begin the task they must take the house and rebuild the polls and the reads into a boat big enough to fit a pair of every animal and examples of all the seeds on earth as well as enough food for a month the carpenters and craftsmen began to work and my children and heated up. Todd's I make the wooden poles watertight and build nine different living spaces inside the boat and build a good reform. Talk with a hatch to keep outdoor eight every night. I gave the workmen. All the food and drink. They could desire no less than great feast of New Year and when the sun rose they got up and set to work again and when the elders of the city came by asked me if I had lost my mind I told them that I had done something to displease the wise God and that I had been ordered to leave the city I was going to the river to live with a otherwise the eldest aids and left us to work in peace. We made a boat one hundred and twenty meters square with six decks and nine separate living quarters when the boat was finished. We rolled the bolt on polls down to the river. It was very heavy and difficult to move teller eventually when we heaved it into the river. Two thirds of the boats stood above the waterline. We gathered every type of animal and type of seed and took them onto the boat. Then we fetched enough food to last a month then took all my silver and gold and stalled it safely on board. Finally I saw a block cloud coming through the skies and I laid all my family. My servants and my work has onto the boat and we tightly Botin down the hatches soon. That was an almighty rumble. Daylight turned to darkness. Save for the flashes of God's taught cheeses they crossed the skies but when the came like an arm may hurtling into battle the goddess h task lean to like a woman giving birth and every human being every dog every insect trembled with dragged next. Nota the God of war broke down the walls of the dams. The water's passed out pouring over cities and fields the animals plants and people. The flawed covered the houses then the tree tops and then the peaks of the mountains Ship tossed and spun with a wind and the waves and stomachs heaved with seasickness bought. We were dry inside ish. Dr Wailed what have we done? I wanted this but why we God sent all the people to the bottom of the sea like fish as all the great Gods of Heaven and hell wept and the tears from their eyes only increased the rain in the flooded our boat rows upon the waters and tossed up and down and this way and that first sex long days heading in whichever direction the wind chose to blow is daylight broke on the seventh day. The storm ceased on the seas fell calm. The world was silent. Ship came to a halt on the very peak of Mount. I opened the hatch in the roof. And let a dove free. She flew out but finding no place or branch to rest on. She returned the next day. I'll let loose a small pigeon but she finding no resting place returned as well and on the third day I let a swallow free and he flew away and did not return then. I knew he must have found a place to rest then. I threw open the doors and made a sacrifice to the gods. They smelt the burnt offering. An End. Lil CRIED OUT. Who Lit some of the humans? Escape death and replied. How could you in your wisdom ever think of destroying all living things on the face of the earth? Let the sinners pay for their sins but let the innocent live and go. Free is justice. Then n Lil came down to the place when my boat had come to rest. He made me. And my wife kneel down. He placed his hands on our foreheads and said and past org nor fished him was a mortal man. Now let him and his wife live for all time in the mouth of this forever. All the time that Britain officd him was telling the story Gilgamesh Sat on his haunches listening nodding and fighting off sleep. He had traveled a long way for many days. And the mists of sleep were gathering around his tempos and that is how I became a multo and that was Gilgamesh and the great flood. Join US next time.

President Trump's Farewell Address
"Now time for your morning cliff. Notes on five seventy klif most of all. I want to thank the american people to serve as your president has been an honor beyond description. Thank you for this extraordinary privilege. And that's what it is a great privilege and a great honor that is president trump sounding presidential in his farewell video to the american people that was released last night He condemned political violence. He called on americans to rise. Above the partisan rancor and he touted some of his administration's greatest accomplishment were horrified by the assault on our capital. Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as americans. It can never be tolerated now more than ever. We must unify around our shared values and rise above the partisan rancor and forger common destiny boy interesting his twenty minute video was so good i thought to myself. Maybe we should play this whole thing. I thought about that too. We're not gonna do about it primarily because none of the networks would do that when a of president leaves what he has to say is important. Certainly as important as his annual speech to joint session of congress in the state of the union address. We've heard so much noise over. You know over the way he is that we've forgotten all the things that he's done at boy. Oh boy that list. And i know you look. You can take issue with some of the things that he claimed to have accomplished. You can take issue it. But the list of things that were addressed during his administration and at at very least their intent was mind boggling. It went on for minutes and minutes and minutes minutes. And the fact that he was able to get a vaccine developed for covid nineteen eight or nine. Months is really amazing. He also he said he said some. He's getting bashed this morning in the press for not mentioning biden by name as if that makes any difference he did refer to the incoming or new administration and he had some words of encouragement. We did what we came here to do. And so much more. This week we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success. In keeping america safe and prosperous we extend our best wishes and we also want them to have luck a very important word. There's pretty good. Yeah president-elect joe biden will be sworn into office at eleven o'clock texas time and we're gonna bring it to you live when it happens. President trump issued a bunch of last minute presidential pardons and commutations total one hundred forty three seventy three pardons and seventy commutations among those was not the tiger king now but he had a big limo waiting for him outside the federal prison for when he was going to be released and it never happened former white house. Senior adviser steve. Bannon was on the list. elliott brady former top fundraiser for the trump campaign rapper. Lil wayne got a pardon after pleading guilty to a gun possession. Charge in miami and another rapper. Kodak black received a commutation after pleading guilty to a weapons charge as the president prepares to leave the white house. Thirty four percent of americans approve of the job. He is doing as president. That's a worst evaluation of his presidency is over here. A four year term His average approval rating was forty one percent. That's four points lower than any of his predecessors at least since gallup's been doing this poll trump's rating show dad record eighty one percentage point gap between republicans and democrats eleven points wider than any other time before. Melania trump also getting a raw deal. She leaves the white house with the worst popularity rating for any first lady at the end of her term in polling history killing had a favorable rating of forty two percent. And let's see. Oh this this is news. That broke overnight mets. It wouldn't be a big surprise but we just learning about it this morning. trump is considering apparently according to sources cited by the wall street journal trip. Pretty good source. There is considering launching a new political party while the patriot party and The party he's going to run on in two thousand twenty four wa. I wouldn't be surprised you know the problem with that is that he's gonna he if he does that. He's going to siphon off a lot of republicans. Well i think he already has done that. Yes but but if he tries to if he tries to inject himself into a three-party race then there's no way that the democrats lose. It's almost like the tea party will become the patriot party. I would think so. I was like the term tea party. That was just cool. Twelve army national guard members have been removed from inauguration duty in washington as part of a security vetting process They were not named. They were flagged due to what is being called inappropriate comments and texts they They are not Of great concern. But the army general daniel hawkins told reporters are just They're just trying to be careful and make sure that no bad apples route. They're worried more about an inside attack. Then an outside attack at the at the inauguration meeting someone who's already admitted or you mean somebody like inside the capitol. Yeah oh. I thought inside attack inside the security well. yeah. I mean december seven on the inside. president-elect joe biden's daughter ashley. It's opening up about her parents. She's thirty nine years old. She talked with Another former first. Daughter jenna bush hager on the today show about the transition which is not the you know not traditional because jill biden is not going to have tea with melania trump. She said but. I think we're all okay with that. I don't know that. I'd want to see the to have tea together. All right as the republican party moves on from the trump administration former vice president. Dan quayle is speaking out. He said the party must separate the policies and accomplishments of the forty fifth president from his personality. He spoke to special report yesterday. I think in this the circumstances right now that it's imperative not imperative but i think it's important that Show up to show no bipartisanship. Show that Republicans and democrats Are unites. what it's all about. It's not a picture of him. Looks pretty good. Does he was If we forget what he's young he was vice pre. Yes he was. He was vice president from nineteen eighty nine until nineteen ninety-three vice president to president. George h.w bushes single term in office. I remember very well. Every time. I hear dan quayle's name i think of The comment that George h w bush made when he first announced quayle as his running mate. He said bush and quayle sounds like hunting magazine. Didn't he misspelled potato. That's the only thing i ever member. Unfortunately most remember four senate majority leader mitch. Mcconnell issued his most striking condemnation of president trump after the capital the attack on the capital and he said that the protesters were provoked by the president. The mob was fed lodge. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people but we pressed on stood together and said angry mob with not veto power over the rule of law in our nation. Not even for one night. Well which mcconnell has got a job to do and Future to to consider at this point the president. Nobody's gonna took donald trump with a ten foot pole. You know what today is. It's appel in rome. it is. It's weird they date is january twentieth. Twenty twenty one twenty twenty twenty one take out the slashes and it's one two zero two zero two one you can read it pound drum simply is something. That's the same backward and forward. Yeah and coming up. You'll never believe what business what company is getting into the political noise and there are a lot of companies that are getting into political is now but seriously you know what let people decide on their own whether they want to buy a product or not exactly.
I Survived Tuberculosis In The 1950s, So Im No Stranger To Quarantine
"Is We hit the two month. Mark of Illinois's Krona virus response. Today's events remind us of something similar that happened in Chicago through much of the twentieth century. Starting about one hundred years ago then is now. The nation was facing a major killer not Kobe nineteen but another disease that attacks the lungs to Burke Yellow Sus TB is highly infectious suits spreads through the air and can destroy the lungs here in Chicago. Tb was taking more than three thousand lives a year and so the city did something about it. In one thousand nine Hundred Fifteen Chicago found infected residents pluck them from their lives from their homes and families and they sent them away to protect the public and for their own good the destination a one hundred and sixty acre mini city on the edge of Chicago. It was called the municipal to per kilo sanitarium where the city's TB patients stayed until they got better or died. We're willing to revisit story. I reported in two thousand seventeen about what it was like to be quarantined in the sanitarium for months or years. Then I'll talk to one of the former residents about the challenges created by the coronavirus. Today if you sit back and say okay. I'm in this. I don't like it but it's GonNa be okay. I just gotTa whole gone. I'm almost at the door. Just hold on and after a while. We'll be okay. But I the municipal TB sanitarium operated for more than a half a century till it closed in nineteen seventy four but some of the buildings are still there part of Pearson Park on the northwest side. And that's where questioner lowering. Nader was visiting with a friend one day when they got lucky they ran into the head of the park and got a tour and she showed us. All these archives took us to the morgue told us about the stories about the underground. How is all connected? This visit only filled with more questions about the place. Especially what was it like to live here? Yeah what was it like? I mean for the quarter million patients who were treated there. That's right. A quarter million. People were quarantined in the sanitarium often for years as late as nineteen seventy four when it finally closed. I'm WBZ reporter. Monica hang and to answer lorries question. I tracked down members of a fading generation there chicagoans who survived. Tb and actually lived at the municipal Sanitarium in its final decades. The place literally saved their lives and the lives of others who could have been infected but it left them with Indelible Memories. Some horrible and some joyful. So what was it like to live at the TB sanitarium well? Little Campbell grew up on the south side and was sent to the sanitarium when she was twelve to her. It looked alien. I don't you've seen pictures of it. But it was huge. Huge others described it as a city within a city. Full of redbrick hospitals dispensaries. Labs a powerhouse cottages even a church school auditorium and yes a morgue and if he got sent there. It was usually because you're contagious. Which meant your first stop. Was the contagious ward. A place that terrified twelve year old lil being locked up. So you're in a room with at least twenty thirty women. You can't sleep. You're not used to the Kosten coughing and you know to wake up in. Someone says you know someone died last night today. We treat TB with antibiotics but even during the nineteen sixties these treatments. That seem weird. Harsh like fresh air treatments to heal the lungs. These left Gloria trump freezing in bed next to windows that were left open even in the middle of Chicago. Winter Windows were always open. Twenty four hours at winter that fall. Put another blanket on you. They opened the windows that you laid in bed. It was every day and it was cold and while resting in that bed there was no movement allowed. Not even for reading. They WANNA do perfectly. Still some of these ideas were the the craziest idea of now. We think about it like that would disturb your TB terms. Here's another thing former. Sanitarium patients can't forget the constant tests to see if you're contagious. Like the sputum test where they stuck a tube down your throat to collect mucus spit from your lungs. Here's low Campbell again to this day. I will not get that that taste. It was like a hot water bottle to the end and they would give you ice water so the student could come up and they could take samples so almost like you're throwing up your gagging and they pulled the tube out by the way to me. That was horrible. How Gloria Traub recalls yet? Another test something called stomach washing the endured every month for nearly two years. You've got up seven. Am IN THE MORNING. You went down to the lab and a technician came and gave you a little tiny bit of oil in a long three and a half with rubber hose. And then he'd say not breathe breathe breathe deep and he'd start sticking a tube down your nose when he got to your stomach. He was talking to take out the stomach solution that they wanted to test. Then he'd say okay and then he just ripped the whole damn thing right out of your was medieval and of course. Tb had killed millions across the world. Something you couldn't forget especially in the contagious word. I think maybe six times somebody had a frank hemorrhage they just suddenly started spurting bright red blood out all over the place from their their mouth because we all made a lot of noise nurse nurse and they take person for mental wheel. Check them out and more often than not. We never thought those people again. Another thing that sticks in the minds of TB. Sanitarium survivors is a long list of rules. They had to live by some of them. Were based on. Who was and who wasn't contagious. If you were very contagious to gave your red card if you were not too bad they gave you a green card. If you could be around other people they gave you a blue card and you had to carry this cart with you everywhere. You went if you have that Blue Green Card. You could leave contagious word. Live in campus cottages but Gloria trump says. There were still a lot of rules and they didn't make a lot of sense. We were never ever allowed to go anywhere with men patients. There was one way around this. It was called Friday movie night. The highlight of the week for the non-contagious men and women got to sit in the same auditorium just in separate sections but once the lights were out. She says it was. Anything goes five minutes after the movie started was horrible running a feat and noise and people running around beating up their friends decided to do the show with him. Yes five minutes before the movie was over. They would flicker Projector dip again. Everybody went back to this seats. Another rule no popcorn or chips because it might scratch our throat so we might start bleeding. These food restrictions led to smuggling. Oh I wanted to hamburger so bad. But they searched the men and the women. They looked in your purse and they kind of looked in your pocket so my father always stuck them down in his boot but pretty soon the guards knew what he did and he must have lost twenty five hamburgers but food wasn't all the patients. Smuggled here's Cesar on Jatta who is nine nineteen seventy two in this one guy. I remember. He was huge big. Mostly Black Guy. Once it got dark you jump the fence and Jump Lake used to back the place of vodka because vodka in. Stay in your in your breath. It wasn't that strong you know so the staff on smelly. Once patients got out of the contagious they could go to sanitarium school get job training and even enjoy some recreation beyond liquor. Here's Virginia Mend. I used to play Croquet. A and then inside scrabble. We got a record player in there. And I learned cha-cha. I made a point of dancing because life thought. Maybe I'll find out if I'm really sick if I can dance. I must not be bad. Still there were limits to the fun especially for some patients will. Campbell remembers a run in with a cafeteria staffer. She was in charge of the dietary staff. It was a bunch of black kids we stayed together and she didn't like us so she would deliberately make a stand and wait so we got to the point where we come in. We we go to the JUKEBOX. And you could play the music for free and we would deliberately put on Rockin Robin just of a little bit because we knew she didn't like Black Bali one day. She got so she unplug the jukebox. By this time. We're getting a little rebellious. And you know we could kind of feel old as the older people say so. We plugged the DOT com. And she couldn't do a thing about it. That was try that day folks remember these little triumphs amid sanitarium states. That could last for years. Relapses were common. So even people who felt fine had to stay on for monitoring but eventually some could make trips home. Gloria traub remembers visiting her husband in eight. Kids you're allowed past to come home for twenty four hours. I was home and I got pregnant so they said well okay. You're going to have to stay here and have your baby. I don't know Sir I I can't do that. My children do not know who their mother is. They think one of the grandmothers they call their mother. I I have to go home in the end. The survivors did go home with rest. Fresh air antibiotics and sometimes surgery. They beat TB but many like lil hold onto mixed feelings. It was a good thing. Cook protected the population. And in fact it saved my life but the things that I went through. I wish they did it differently. But that's the in justified. The means in this case. Yes so there you have it. A glimpse into the world of a quarter million chicagoans who passed through the gates of Chicago's Municipal. Tb Senator Kerry him. And here's one last thing. They all experienced no medical bill literally zero dollars for years of treatment housing and food. This last point really moved our question or Laurie years. Why one hundred years ago. Chicagoans came together and voted. They voted to pay for all of this care through city taxes. Aunt to cover. Everyone who was a miracle is how I look at it and we don't have that anymore if you're sick poor minority. You're not treated like human beings. It should not be the end of your life. If you're sick and poor we we get it right out. Nope why we don't have it right anymore. This week I got back in touch with Lil Campbell who remember lived sanitarium for three years in the nineteen fifties. We talked about what it was like to live through the tuberculosis outbreak. And how it prepared her for the pandemic were all living through today. She started out by telling me about her. Tb Diagnosis. I was twelve and I think my teacher was one of the persons to begin to notice. They didn't let me go back to school. It was a very hush hush disease you didn't if you do that you would consider the very lowly dairy unclean. People Kinda frowned on us. Like you a dirty I do for above all thing I do. Remember most was the doctor who treated me and he said to my mother. I've seen this before. Mother was just heartbroken. She was just very upset. She didn't cry. She wasn't but she was very visibly shaken. He let me spend one last night with my mother and my brothers and sisters. She had to bring me tomorrow that next morning. Which is what she did. We didn't talk the whole way. We we said nothing. She just looked out the window and Sodi there was really nothing to say. I was there from twelve until I was fifteen years old under the stay at home order. Were able to still go outside and take a walk but for some of the patients at the sanitarium depending on their stage of recovery. This wasn't permitted. Lil wasn't allowed to go outside and take a walk for some of that time. She couldn't even socialize with other kids and even the nurses kept their distance. Afraid of getting sick. It was a hard way to grow up but little things kept her going like getting letters in the mail. Never Forget my dad. He sent me a point. It was called. If I think it's by kipling and he wrote it out and I'll never forget it Let's see my favorite part if you can drain and not make dream. Your masters if you can think and not make you're a if you can meet with triumph and disaster and treat. Those two imposters. Just say those I think to me. That was part for me at that moment because at that time I needed encouragement I needed to know what was going through was not the end of me. And that's what people need to do. Not just just be steal. It's this isn't GonNa last forever. It's it's GonNa get better if you sit back and say okay. I'm in the south. Don't like it but it's GonNa be okay. I just gotTa hold on. I'm almost at the door. Just hold on and after a while be okay but we'll never be the same. You never saying after terrible illness or a problem or hurt or Orlov. You never the same and you're not supposed to be say that's the point but it's all in how you allow it to change you for Lil. The change was profound. She says the experience at the sanitarium inspired her to go into the medical field where she worked as a nurse's assistant in a certified medical assistant looking back now sees a lot of similarities between two Burke Yellow Sus and cove in nineteen the uncertainty the fear the blame. This is an enemy that we don't know we didn't know TB within the Spanish flu. We didn't know. Polio will have all kinds of theories people saying the world or so and so did this in this country that we don't know that we. I mean polio conference. Where did she be come from I? It doesn't matter. It affected us to the point where our lives were turned upside down. That's that's all it is to it. It isn't just us. It's the whole world. This isn't just United States problem. This is the world's rob wherever came from. It doesn't matter what we have to do and I firmly believe this is to help each other to help each other and be patient. She says after all she lived in quarantine for three years so maybe we can do it for a few months. I hear people talk about at Church. No you don't know no you don't if you know God read Your Bible. He says that the tour gathered in my name. My mother taught us from the Bible. That if you go on going to closet. Close Your door. That's a sanctuary. I don't need to be in building to worship God people saying well. I want to go outside. I'm tired of being cooped up. I WANNA go to work but I look in there in bars. That's not work. Do you work there now. You don't that's telling me you never had any good interest in the first place would acting like worrying about their gauge WANNA blame. The mayor's the governor's we WANNA stand at city halls with guns. No and if you really think about it I'm sure other disease is came about. I'm sure people did the same thing. Same thing hasn't change just the diamond dating people vessel. One thing hasn't changed and that's Lil. She lived through two Burke Yellow. Sus and now she's living through covid nineteen and for her. It's all pretty simple. The bottom line is yes we should. We should understand that. This is something we're trying to take from you which to keep you from getting something which has gotta be become souls selfish that we just forget that we're all in this. It's a bolt. Will all sitting in together one person rocket we all understand for special? Thanks to Gloria Traub. Caesar Naughty Will Campbell. Virginia men.
