"There aren't a lot of details yet on what that actually means. But based on the tweet, I'm going to wildly speculate that it's some sort of rewards or maybe even a revenue share that could come to owners of the NFTs within this collection based on the sales of the associated toys. That's what intuitively I would think that that means. In an NFT ecosystem, significantly down from the peak of last year's mania, it's, I think not just an interesting thought experiment, but also kind of interesting to see how projects are starting to innovate when it comes to that. How do you differentiate in kind of a post Cambrian explosion PFP project world? And I think that this is a pretty actually good idea. Whether it takes off or not, different question. Jen, what do you think? Yeah, I think this is really interesting. And so my read on the story is that so each of the NFT holders owns a non exclusive license to the rights of that of that specific NFT. So it's personal and commercial. I read through it today. So basically, if you own one of the pudgy penguin NFTs, you can put it on t-shirts, make toys, make replicas and sell that to the tune of $500,000. The contract does not allow you to make more than $500,000 over the 12 month period, and it sounds like the creators of the project have selected a few of the NFTs, licensed the image from the holders of those NFTs and have created these toys. And so this is really interesting to me because you can imagine a future where brands like Disney and Mattel are made from these NFT projects and so often we ask like, what am I getting when I buy one of these digital JPEGs? Well, maybe it's a share in a company like Mattel. Maybe you have a share in in the company that's going to make toys for the next generation. And so I think it's really interesting when we look at some of these licensing agreements and some of these experiments that are coming out of these NFT projects in the form of toys. Now, my next question is, I wonder who's going to buy these toys? I hope it's not just the owner of the NFT. I hope that they can actually create this brand and this future that I'm talking about because it feels like the next iteration of that side hustle culture, right? I can own the NFT. I can make an income in this instance up to $500,000 for 12 months. But I just don't know if the market is there. And I hope to see what happens. Well, what do you think? Oh, I would definitely buy one of these just for putting in the background, a little pillow. But let's take a look at the history of these pudgy penguins. And now, will's history corner with will foxley? Okay, so they're NFTs. There's not that much history. But there is a little bit to dive into. Yeah, we got one year history in the books. June 2021, they were launched some fan Ferris island pop up on crypto Twitter quite a bit. They ousted the original founders in January this year, which we've seen with a few NFT projects both typically the NFT projects seem to stick around the original team just because it adds more value to the project itself into the NFT tokens as well. Then in April this year, the brand was told to Los Angeles based entrepreneur and pudgy penguin holder for 750 eth in order to take more control over the collections, future. So we got a little history there, and we have more history in terms of NFTs themselves. As we see that, this does happen from time to time, a lot of times the communities try to basically take control of the NFTs in order to pump the value of the NFT at the end of the day is really what it's about. There's also some licensing stuff that's involved with here. The other day we saw that moon birds change its licensing NFTs to CCO from its original licensing scheme. What this basically means is that anyone can use moon birds, licensing, they're able to commercialize it. But in the original sense, like moon birds, whereas in NFT, so only the NFT holders should be able to take that and commercialize the rights to it. Do not believe pudgy penguin has done that. And that's a good thing. How'd you penguin holders who want to make more money on their IG penguins? Adam to you? Yeah, I think that this is there's the headline part of the story and then there's the subtext of it. There's some subtext here, which is interesting. When you start talking about revenue flows, you are almost always in the world of cryptocurrency, talking about taking something that is probably not a security and turning it into a security in the eyes of the U.S. regulators. Now, what they're doing with pudgy penguins is interesting because it's a licensing deal where they're saying that owning the NFT means that you own certain rights. And so then it's not a company distributing money. It's a company who is licensing something back to you. So it's actually a really clever way to potentially use it in this fashion. Now, I don't know if that's going to work. I think it would be really interesting to talk to a lawyer like Preston Byrne and kind of get their take on this type of thing. Does this become a security at that point?

"A better work life balance. In a column in the Los Angeles Times, Mary McNamara wrote, quote, if cladwell and others are truly concerned about the psychological state of the workforce, they would do well to remember that everyone's needs are different and that those needs often change. This conversation about the work we do and where we do it from has led us to reconsider a question we pondered last year. Does your job define you? Here's what ruthie woodring of Northampton, Massachusetts, and Thai Herald of Raleigh, North Carolina told us last fall. My job definitely defines who I am. That's how people see me. I think that in many circles it does define who you are. Well, if you find yourself in a similar camp, our next guest would like you to think differently about how much your job dictates who you are. Arthur Brooks is a contributing writer for the Atlantic who wrote a piece titled a profession is not a personality. Here is our conversation from last October. You say that Americans tend to glorify being driven and ambitious. And these days letting work take over your life is easier than ever. What's the case you're building here for bringing balance? It's a happiness case. And it's extraordinary to me how many people have defined themselves with their work and they get into their 40s and 50s and they realize that they've not been fully alive. And the reason for that is that work is important for a happy life. But relationships for which we're not compensated are a lot more important. And so if you're basically a human that's defined by work, if you objectify yourself with respect to your job, you're frankly going to miss most of the important things that can make you happy. In fact, you say striving for success at work and expecting both satisfaction and happiness. We're setting ourselves up for, quote, joyless, accomplishment and unreachable goals followed by the tragedy of inevitable decline. Explain what you mean by that. Well, what I find and most people know this sort of intuitively. But it's really, really clear. And the research is that people who are particularly those who are good at their jobs, they get rewarded for it. And you do more of what you're incentivized to do. And when people patch on the back and say, great job. And give you a bunch of worldly rewards like money and promotions on the basis of you're going to do it more and more and more. And then increasingly, you start to look at each additional hour in your life, and you kind of work on what economists call marginal thinking, which is this hour, what's its highest and best use, is very easy for the 14th hour to be spent at work as opposed to the first hour at home. And as a matter of fact, one of the things that I find for people who are real workaholics and addicted to success is that they don't have any real friendships. You could say that they have a lot of deal Friends, but no real Friends. And so you pose these questions that you suggest we ask ourselves. Is your job the biggest part of your identity? Are you sacrificing love relationships for work? Do you have trouble imagining being happy if you were to lose your job? So those are some examples of some questions to ask, and what if the answer is yes? Well, then it's time to reassess. And again, I'm not saying that we shouldn't take satisfaction or jobs, but your faith and your family and your friendships. These are things that we just can't neglect. And no time is the wrong time to actually start focusing on the love relationships that we can and should see in our lives that we all deserve. And at the same time we live in a time of high costs for housing for healthcare for education and economists have found that many Americans are working more than in years past and for so many, it's not really a choice. It's an economic necessity. Yeah, but the attitude that we have about how we see ourselves really is our choice. And what I find is that a lot of people, they have to work hard because they have to pay the rent for sure. But they still don't define themselves as a work machine. They don't get their entire sense of self worth from that. The point of your work is to serve other people and to serve your relationships into be a compliment to the love that's actually in your life. I want to crowding out the love in your life and was how you understand yourself. That's a big problem. That's actually a recipe for dissatisfaction, even misery. How should we reshape our relationship with our jobs and our identity? Well, there are a lot of different ways to do this. And one of the things that I always recommend is that people keep Sabbath a little bit and I don't mean that in a religious context. That's up to every one of our listeners to decide, but the point is to make rest and completely away from work sacred. To take it really seriously. So it's like, okay, I guess I won't go into the office on Sundays, but I'm going to check my email all day long. And I'm going to start at 5 a.m. and go to 11. You're just at the office. You need time away where you're specifically a way of engagement of the things. That's important. The other thing is to make sure that you do have real Friends and not just deal Friends. People who don't treat you as an economic tool or see you only as somebody who's incredibly good at their job. And finally, if you want to go big, this is what I do is I take my own career completely down to the studs every ten years and start over. What about people for whom reinventing themselves is really not an option? You know, they're working three jobs to make ends meet. You know, maybe you're on a work Visa. You're completely dependent on your job. I mean, those people must define themselves differently than some others. Well, it's true. And so there's a lot of privilege attached to being able to change your careers, although I know lots and lots of

Salem Radio's Dennis Prager on the Importance of Talk Radio
"Have written an amazing piece on your 40th anniversary of talk radio on the things you have learned in those four decades, 5 big lessons. I want to talk about a couple of them, but first, it's not in the article, but you told me how it all started and this peculiar weekend show where you had guests from different denominations. Will you tell us about that show at the beginning, Dennis? Because I love the concept. I began radio at the 32, I think 30, 34 years of age. And it was a blessing changed my life, obviously. There was an extremely popular show in Los Angeles on the ABC radio station. And I mean, so popular that eventually it became the most popular show in Los Angeles, despite the fact that it was broadcast on a Sunday Night, the least likely time for people to listen. But it dominated radio. It was called religion on the line, and it was dominant before I became the host. I just increased it, but I acknowledge it was I knew about it because everybody knew about it. A priest a minister in a rabbi would appear different ones each week, Catholic Protestant Jew, and the host. The host that I that they were thinking of letting go was secular and anti religious. And they were looking for a new host. I don't know if that was the reason, but they were. And by sheer good luck, my name was brought to the general manager of the station. And George green was a legend in radio and for whom I have only deepest gratitude for my life's journey, so he told this woman Roberta Weintraub May she rest in peace. The head of education in Los Angeles said, I need somebody who knows religion knows how to speak, but it's not a clergyman. And she said, I can't believe you're asking that. I just heard this kid at this Jewish institute here in Los Angeles. I went for a weekend there. I heard him lecture, he's terrific. And they said, oh, good, let's try him out. And in the middle of the show, the program director slipped me a note, I wish I had, I still had it. It changed my life. Tell them you'll be on next week.

Vin Scully's Voice Will Live On
"I want to speak about a man who just in a short period of time that I've been researching him is, in my opinion, one of the greatest voices of sports entertainment, one of the great, greatest voices, period. Someone who has a parent integrity, people love him. I can tell you what, when I was growing up, I didn't hear about him because I never watched baseball, but listening to Larry elder and people on the staff who are from Los Angeles, they tell me that Vince Scully was such an incredible man and has an incredible legacy and for those of you who may not know Vince Scully Vin Scully passed away, I believe he passed away last night. And I'm going to read a little bit of information about him and it's just that he was a Hall of Fame broadcaster.

He gave me this job at such a youthful age, and allowed me to live and do it 67 years. What am I going to say? Darn it, why didn't I get number 68 or anything like that? No. I am totally at ease, I am so thankful, grateful. I've enjoyed every minute of it, believe me. Every minute.

Los Angeles County Says 'No' to Indoor Mask Mandate Following Backlash
"And a victory, believe it or not in Los Angeles County. Los Angeles County leaders, the board of supervisors they call them out there. Had said they were going to mandate indoor masking requirements again. It was going to happen. I don't know if they were fighting COVID or fighting monkey pox or I mean, I just I don't know. I don't know what the crisis of the day is. But you know what happened in Los Angeles County? Leaders of cities in Los Angeles County said, no. We will not enforce a new mask wearing mandates. Now let that sink in for a second. Because if government leaders were you are where I am had said something like that, you might say, well, you know, that's just how it is here. I look at my governor, governor Glenn youngkin here in my beloved Commonwealth of Virginia. And I know Glenn youngkin is committed to empowering parents being responsible. So I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if governor youngkin said, hey, this is on you. If you want to do that, that's up to you. In fact, that's what he said since the very beginning. But Los Angeles County, does it get more far left wing than LA county and California? I don't think it does. So the far left wing leaders on that board of supervisors say, yep, we're bringing back masks. But leaders of cities and towns inside of Los Angeles County said we will not enforce a new masking mandate. That's a huge victory. I'm telling you right now, that's like, that's like an unexplained outbreak of common sense.

"los angeles" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"The virtues of the logo that you covered the green monster with the 99 All-Star Game. Well, buster, I'm gonna correct you because I did not do the 99 All-Star Game logo. However, you would have been correct if you would have referenced the 90th anniversary of Fenway Park, logo, which was in 2002, and a couple of other things along the way. But David is an amazing man with an amazing story and I'm looking forward to getting up to Fenway. Sometime later this year, quite possibly after the all star break. So always a great trip, even when the Red Sox are scuffling along and not able to score runs. Yeah, you're going down bitter boulevard this morning. There's no question about it. Before we get started, we're talking about that game last night when they were shut down by the reds just as they were shut down by the Baltimore Orioles. Four losses and 6 games against those two teams. Hey, it's like it's as if it was 1975 and the reds in the Orioles were powerhouse franchises and speaking of which you and I talked about this a little bit before we jumped on to the last reds win at Fenway Park. Game 7 of the 1975 World Series. I was a very bitter young man then when that had happened buster. Very well. Very bitter ten or 11 year old. Yeah, I was 11 years old. I was pissed off. It was not a good situation. But time goes by, you get other bad memories, good memories of outweighed those. I never thought I would see a championship in my lifetime, much less for, much less be it three of them. So like baseball is kind of a, it's a metaphor for life. It's very forest Gump like, it's a marathon, not a sprint, and we shall see what we shall see, and hopefully the Red Sox can score some runs. I was telling June Lee about the city connect uniforms that were revealed last week, you know, in particular that one with the rockies, how my son absolutely loved them. What did you think? Oh, I love the rockies once. And you and I have been talking about this for the last year and a half, whatever it's been. And I know Julie loves to write about city connected forms. As much as I hate my Red Sox city connect uniforms, the Red Sox out there, looking like the yellow minions, I love the rockies. I'm a big license plate guy. All right, just like come at me here, buster. And I think that these uniforms capture something that is distinct and very Colorado and they get into the weeds with a lot of the superfluous details that no one is ever going to see. What's inscribed on the jock tag and all that. But the immediate impact of these and that green color, which you see a lot of that green color at beautiful course field, I think they nailed it. Yeah. That's clear, June, June, absolutely feels the same way. And I'm sure, you know, as we go forward with more of those, we're going to be hearing more from you about those uniforms. All right, let's talk about this week's phantom franchise. So buster, the St. Louis browns, scheduled a press conference for 1 p.m. on December 8th, 1941 at Lyman's cafe in Los Angeles, California. The big announcement involved the move of the moribund browns to LA, starting in 1942. The brownies had recently concluded their 12th consecutive losing season. And they shared a ballpark with the Saint Louis Cardinals, an excellent franchise that commanded the attention of their city. Brown zoner Don Barnes had quietly worked out the details of the moved west, which included a deal with the then minor league angels to purchase the team and stadium. Eager to have St. Louis to himself, Cardinals owner Sam Braden would kick in a quarter of a $1 million to help send the browns packing for the Golden State. The Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce guaranteed a minimum season attendance of 500,000 for the first 5 years, including an offer to make up the difference if the guarantee was not met. Travel schedules were carefully worked out and barns lined up the preliminary approval of his fellow American League owners. The Los Angeles browns were set to become the first and it will be franchise to change cities since 1903 and the first big league club west of St. Louis. A permanent stadium was to have been built in Long Beach to host the ball club. On December 7th, 1941, barns arrived in Chicago, where a meeting of American League owners was to be held the following day to grant formal approval. However, that morning, Japanese forces staged a surprise Attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, decimating the U.S. Pacific fleet and cut a catapulting the United States into World War II. Barnes made his presentation to the league the following day as scheduled, but he asked his fellow owners to reject the proposal. Our dream was shattered, he later told the sporting news with the scare of a West Coast invasion we realized at once that Los Angeles was no place for the browns. The other owners agreed voting unanimously to keep the browns franchise in St. Louis where they won their only a pennant in 1944 before finally relocating to Baltimore ten years later and where they now play as the Orioles. But today buster, we salute the Los Angeles browns. They are this week's phantom franchise. So do you think Todd, I based on the information you have, they would have kept that name because as you said it, I thought, boy, that it would have just landed with a thud. And what we think of as Los Angeles today, the browns, and then I was also thinking that, yeah, the Dodgers nickname doesn't really work necessarily. Either that doesn't make any sense given the history of that nickname, but can you imagine? Well, it's interesting buster. Research the name of the history of the Los Angeles Lakers. And I was in LA last week. I saw silver Lake, not a lot of lakes in Los Angeles, but they're wearing Minneapolis where the Lakers moved from. And I found a quote from the, I believe, publicity director of the Lakers at that time. And he said, you know, why change the name of the team, the Dodgers kept their name when they moved to LA, the Giants kept their name. The braves kept their name when they moved from Boston to Milwaukee. This is what was done. And certainly 1941, no team moves to speak of in major league sports back then, very few, you know, I'm thinking NHL none in Major League Baseball as I pointed out. So they probably would have.
"los angeles" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Baseball for ESPN. He's been to a lot of games in Fenway Park in June. Last night, watching what Joey Votto went through, you know, hitting two balls at the absolute edge of the home run boundaries. First and right field on that wall that's in front of the visitors bullpen and then to hit the one on top of the green monster and have the same thing happen. I mean, would you back me up that this might be something you would never see again in the history of baseball. It might be the most unlikely thing that's ever happened in the history baseball. Yeah, because if you take like ichiro, for example, a dude who knows how to place a baseball anywhere. I'm not sure that if he just was tossing up a baseball and just trying to do this that he would be able to do that, especially because the outfield walls that Fenway Park are so weird to begin with like the one in right field is already so low compared to most ballpark and then obviously you've got the green monster and left field. To be able to place balls with that level of specificity and also have them bounce back, like the odds of that are probably greater than one in a million, one in 5 million, 10 million. It's just something I've never seen before, I mean, you rarely see that in general with just one of the walls. So you see that happened twice is something you just never imagined seeing happening. For one player in one game, right? Just crazy. And I mentioned in the open about how Joey before the game was being so specific, he was turning around and asking one of the staffers on the reds. Okay, how hard was the exit velocity in that ball? Tell me, what was that? And he's getting the news back, one O 6, one O 7, one O 8. So he was so locked in. I can't even imagine how he processed that game and what happened last night. It was better for him. I'm sure that the fact that the reds won for the Red Sox at four losses in 6 games against the Baltimore Orioles and the Cincinnati reds who supposedly are two of the worst teams in baseball. I can't figure out the Red Sox, June. Yeah, it kind of reminds me so far of 2019. And maybe a little bit more extreme than 2019 where the Red Sox were kind of middling around 500 the entire season, they would go through stretches where they looked like a team that could go into the playoffs and make some waves. And then they would go through stretches where they would lose games against teams they should win. So to see them drop all these games against the Orioles and the reds. It's like, what are you doing, guys? I mean, this is a team that made it all the way to the ALCS last year, had an off season where they add Trevor story. I think I was talking to some folks around Fenway Park a couple of weeks ago about how lucky the team was that the Celtics and the bruins were winning as much as they were going deep into the playoffs because if that hadn't happened, the pressure on this team would have skyrocketed, especially on Trevor story and story was able to kind of hit his way out of that slump and I think kind of helped ride the Red Sox into a streak where they were getting closer to 500. But there's so many parts of this team that I think are kind of exacerbating one another, the struggles in the bullpen, putting more pressure on the offense and putting more pressure on the starting rotation that opens a disaster. I mean, there's no way around that. I think people around Fenway and people who work for the Red Sox will admit that this group came into the season already thinner than they probably should be in a division that's as competitive as they are. But the biggest surprise has been Matt Barnes being as bad as he has been. And I've talked to some of his former teammates where they kind of talk about how he's a guy who is one of the most talented relievers in baseball from a stuffed standpoint, but he gets in his head so much, especially when he struggles that one bad outing can start to spiral into multiple bad atoms and then he's too hard on himself because he's putting more pressure on the rest of the bullpen and the rest of the bullpens already spread thin. And they're really relying on guys like Tanner how to be kind of the bullpen anchor to replace a guy like Garrett who's obviously down the rotation. They've had John shriver be very good over the course of the last few weeks. But Barnes is really the guy that I think is the key for this team to be able to kind of help at least relieve some of those bullpen issues. And they just can't depend on the bullpen right now to keep a lead late in the game. So if you're John Henry and that's your job now, I'm going to make you John Henry. Owner of the Red Sox. At some point in the next two months, you have to decide whether or not to be buyers or sellers. And let's face it. If the Red Sox decide to become sellers, they're going to be like a one stop shop for all these contending teams because they have so many guys who were potentially free agents in the fall and you start with Xander bogarts who could opt out of his deal. JD Martinez went into yesterday with the highest batting average in baseball, all those starting pitchers, you know, Michael waka and ridge hill and Nathan of Aldi, Christian basque as their catcher. If you are John Henry, today, what's your instinct in terms of whether or not you're going to be by or seller? Well, if I'm John Henry, I'm first saying Muhammad a lot to a deal for Liverpool. You locking him up. But I mean, I think you make a great point in that. The Red Sox have all these perfect trade pieces to help improve a contender. I think Xander is kind of at the center of all of this as a franchise face and the Red Sox fan base still despite the Mookie trade relatively going decently well not being a disaster for them in terms of the return that they got. That sour taste is still in their mouth. And this has been kind of a decades long relationship between the fan base and the front office. Specifically, the.

I have always said that college admissions is the rubber hitting the road for Rep progressive. And we talked about long time with my mother on fire as well. I love that well. We were parents and Van Nuys as a studio musician. What's the quickest way to get to the valley? Mary musician writer that we completely were caught unawares and I would have sent my kids to private school. Well if I could. I just couldn't afford it and couldn't get them in but when talking to other liberal progressive parents at all the La Times book events and all of the parties as with the discharge nate Cetera et Cetera. Language was it was never a private school. It was always an independent school to sounds like right on target and the reason that we are sending our child to John Dewey Mulholland willows. Say on the mountain is because we wanted independent thinking and diversity versity. Yeah but the local schools are seventy five percent Latino. They're not diverse enough because there are two Latino there to Mexican and Guatemalan but the limousine liberals or whether it would be that Acura. I don't even know what the fancy car the Tesla hybrid imports. delectable carcass are better than you upset that liberal but they never called it it was which is a little bit of a cfo be it was always in service of their child all that was gifted and they just didn't want their kids to be among English learners because they had learned somewhere appear related the their child's English learning developed both parents have PhD's in English and learn plenty of good English. Just look at a publication like so many of the top liberal publications out of New York that really really really espoused liberal politics boy. Their editors all their kids go to expensive private schools New York Times. Yes yes David. remix kids go to the local public school. Hey James Bennett. At at the time I didn't go to the local public school walk. And you talk about diversity. It's a curated diversity wind. Oh we want African Americans. We won African American kids. That are from the hood but we want them vetted very thoroughly. We want that admissions person to have shaken them upside down and sideways. We may even even want a third party. There's these nonprofits like a better chance that helps identify. We WanNA make sure that they're not that kind of African American kid. Yeah we want you know the right kind. And then of course the kid who's just there to get his education is also there to provide it'd diversity experience for the rich white kids so they can say our child doesn't see color right and then about the La realities. When I was sending my kids to elementary school we were looking at a house over here and I said well? What is the elementary school? She said. Oh it's vantage it. Never send them. Don't even think about why right he's all Hispanic and she said but if you buy on the other side of the street that's the district for Third Street school. Oh but you'd Never WanNa go there. Why all Asian? They're super competitive. So the Hispanics perceived to be not strong enough for your genius the Asians not. They got their hustle on your kids. Missile ever survive. You need some curated diversity up just the reality of liberal liberal liberal to go back to felicity huffman felicity. Here's what's going on. I don't know how much you followed her mothering website. What the flicker which close goes down immediately after she was arrested? I didn't okay so her thing. On what the flow. The tone of it is we all love. Our Kids Ed's motherhood has gotten crazy. Take some shortcuts. That's the whole essence of what the flick like you know. What if those other mothers WANNA show up? And unlike Carpool to the thing and bring all desserts. For God's sakes let them do it. And if you're supposed to like handknitted Cape for the play and you've got an extricate for God's sakes she just took the what the flicker approach one step too far like if you're doesn't do well on the sat just have have someone take it doesn't get someone to take. She just did not realize immersed she was or or in a way in a way it was the highest testament to what the flip thinking. You know now that she's out of jail she should be like what the flick into the maximum whereas yes I had to go to the slammer but it was just just like a camp and me and Martha Stewart and the Don suits like you win some you lose a lot of people are like. Oh she's the least involved of any evident. It did seem on the one hand I talked to an FBI guy about what these rates are like. All of them are basically you kick open the door if they don't open it. You flood the house because there could be someone in backer destroying documents. Everyone's like sleeping in their getting a SWAT team. So it's like is that too much and I see where they could be coming from. Where when the whole system is so corrupt what made her plan more corrupt? And there's a lot of talk now in La that apparently this always always gets exaggerated among parents top. Private schools didn't do very well with early action and early decision this year at the Ivy League colleges and there's been some talk that the Ivy League colleges want to teach a lesson to these. La Rich people. Not that. I think it's going to affect everything in the ultimate decisions at the end but are kind of saying we are not just going to close on your bullshit anymore. We're GONNA keep an eye on you all the way through before we give any admissions. I just think it got the attention of the admissions missions. Offices of what coaches were doing and it just showed how easily the system was manipulated.

"Jubal Flavor town within reachable. Work good is Geez without the beaches will be real. It's just pitched jelly and cheese. He's that is pressed into tiny bitty square. What do you P to do do when it comes to sleeplessness and worry as a parent of teens well end of the year comes not just the holidays but college application season? Those you see ones are do Thanksgiving weekend then comes Christmas then comes January the first month of Erie waiting where there's lots of time to ruminate and you get the queasy feeling as a parent that you've done everything wrong. Perhaps not as wrong as felicity Huffman but still wrong to commiserate great spoke with my friend Caitlin Flanagan about her recent brilliant piece they had it coming in the Atlantic monthly. I remember I still in this horrible habit of waking up. I'm just looking at twitter. which is just an addictive thing to do? And I should break brisket your secrets I still do it and so I kind of woke up and I just go to the most tweeted out stories and it just seemed like felicity Huffman arrested. FBI Cheating Sat. And I fell asleep. It was so overwhelming it it was just like. I maybe had an aneurysm. It was just so that the FBI had taken beloved celebrity Felicity Huffman because she had somehow paid to cheat on her daughters sat. It was like if you wrote a really bad bald on the head novel. That would be like a number one bestseller about celebs. La and what ultimately would bring her down would be the FBI that would be just ridiculous scene and everybody said. Are you going to write about it and analyzing whenever there's often been where people like. This is the perfect story for you. That's why I'm not going to write it. And then I realized. Oh they're right. I should because before becoming a writer twenty-five years ago I tried it a very fancy prep school in La Harvard Westlake. And then I was a college counselor there and when you were a teacher to teach school like that is a dream dream. Come true because the kids. They've done more of the homework than you did. They know that minor characters that you kind of just glossed over and you see come in. Can't write it all in the beginning of the year Macbeth. Macbeth is weird by the end. Macbeth is ambitious but in the college. Counseling Office. I really saw that these parents it just consume home them on every level. The idea that all of a sudden my time as the person filling this child with values ideas traditions additions. It's ending there's that and then there's this whole other insane level that if your child doesn't get into a certain kind leaned of college which every possible you know the. US Bureau of Economic Research. Does this every single year. There's no economic benefit. God knows there's not the happiness benefit because I have known some real depressive that went to some very fancy college it and all that gets mega jacked up with this idea of America right now being this society where the one percent is really the half percent is really the quarter percent. Where there's just this mega well? That's developing I am convinced convinced out of these private schools and the elite colleges. We're no longer seeing the production of a leadership class. Or even I think we're seeing the beginning of a ruling class. These parents at these top prep schools. They would be so rich. They wouldn't be in these mansions. It wouldn't be driving in these cars if they didn't know how to be aggressive. Never take no for an answer. One person says no you keep going to someone else and someone else in someone else and so instead of doing anything having to do with education in the least basically like you're in a Harem filleted ing these monsters to keep them. Happy happy to get them things that you didn't get an opportunity to have what went wrong with these schools because they weren't always horrible like as recently as nineteen sixty nine. There was this credo of the independent schools. It said it would be not a sin but it would be a terrible thing if all we were doing was taking in strong kids and making them stronger privileged kids and making them more privilege that price of tuition every child must know is dead of service to the nation and and what happened is the nineteen eighties and these horrible parents. They're all came of age in the eighties. Greed is good. You WanNA flashy car you WANNA flashy degree. You're working on Wall Street. You're cheating the country you're causing economy to collapse. Not once but twice and then you would see these colleges they are. I don't know if we're allowed to say horse anymore. In bad way these colleges. They'll do anything for money and Harvard. Yale do it like do you know what. The Z list is at Harvard. No every year there are families are so wealthy but the kid is so marginal the college. I want to take them so one of the reasons that they'll really bring down the GPA A.. And the test scores are so it's senior year. You've applied to Harvard. You did not get into Harvard. You can send your deposit to whatever other school considered a lesser schools at Trinity College or whatever and then the parents start working with Harvard. Harvard says well your in your child could actually be admitted for a year from now so we don't have to account for his grades and scores ever because he's not in the pool. Well that's been this year and he's not going to be in the next year they are seventy percent white fifty percent alumni. It used to be quite secret and now it's is quite known if you have a kid and private high school who's going to Harvard taking a year off. They're almost certainly Z list. It it makes me sad for all the either middle class or lower who are just working really hard on their. Sat's and volunteering like that's going to you know that they're in the same pool as others. My business in life one of my job is to constantly explain to these kids who all different through podcasting if Today but through my writing that this is it profoundly corrupt system. It bows to money before all other things and every single thing they try to do to make it look like. It's not a profoundly corrupt system as ally suggesting to like Ernest High School kid of America. That if you do everything right you have a chance to Yale. No you don't and some of the cruelty is I think both children particularly younger one. WHO's male? I was more aware I I love just going to say I love head of act like we've been talking for fifty minutes about millions of kids and you're like we'll both children especially the younger one like it back to Mike when you envelopes come in Harvard Yale Stanford there came Mrs from all of these goals to say just comment apply it. Neither of my kids played a sport. You know it's like what is crew when what's like on the crew of what there was no Lacrosse in Van Nuys. Israeli land long running from the the grass is that kind of sparkling water. But they're inviting all these kids too long so that those numbers come in love. The application staffer just loves the fact that they don't even publish the numbers because it's so disillusioning but everyone knows it's three percent right three percent when you're letting in three percent on some of those are the alumnis children and some are the children of the super wealthy and some are these athletes. God knows we gotTa have these raping swimmers on campus at all raping swimmer Ru. It's not a fair game right and also the thing with the testing extra your listeners. In American with Disabilities Act Act has very correctly always said some children have serious learning disabilities and they need extra time to take these tests. That's the nature the profoundly dyslexic kid. Of course the college should know that. So they'll put a little asterisk next to it so the no it in the context of this disability will will Americans for disabilities got involved a second time and said No. That's wrong to stigmatize disabled person. So we're going to take off that Asterisk asterisks so the college will never know if you took it over two days over.

"With alcohol which I white approved myself because I definitely don't so I am kind of doing some New Year stuff you all. I make big canal about not doing it with Dunkin' with that and in well I am accepting my weight. That's a big thing giving up. Lisa talks about that. Include Psych the whole fantasy of being thin. And how you're GonNa look and what it's going to be like. That's this huge definite itself and I have gone through that I don't have that fantasy right. Yeah I feel so sad that I was allowed to hate myself for so so many years about my body. I wish I could take like I could cry right now. Just thinking of myself for myself that I spent so much of my time on earth breath hating myself. I don't think I'm thinner now. Because of the diets I went on. I think I'm actually heavier. Because the diets I went on. There's so much stress in in cycling through different way yes and also feeling just feeling bad about how you look as its own cortisol trigger that. No it's true that her theory is that that causes more physical harm than anything else right and it's hard to know even in the pre diabetic stuff how much it's from the weight and the desperate attempt to control the eating and then the feast and famine. Which of course I'm still doing? I'm still in the midst of it but right well. It's kind of like a year ago. I really did give up. What didn't fast or or control my eating in anywhere about it for a year and I did gain and I did not not like how my body felt? I don't like how it feels like when I'm walking around right I mean that I it does not matter how I look I. It doesn't matter for my job it doesn't matter any my husband doesn't care like I feel like I'm really healthy. I don't think it affects my health. It doesn't feel great to be at the size is but I don't exactly know what to do about it. So that's why I came up with this two times of fasting one time a week and then wherever it lands it lands. It may just be at this body. That's my current thing but I I realize how much how much I'm still caught in it while I'm trying to get out of it so I think as you go forth just summing up you've resolved solve some some big things I was on the path of resolving them so I don't know maybe this is just another way for me to sneak in have a diet or maybe the Holistic Lynn wisely. You're in conversation with this whole topic. I want is to not think about it so much. I don't WanNa put so much energy into it. which is a weird thing to say in the middle of a five to possibly seven day fast but I wanna be like Oh? This is what I do every year. I do these things and and then during the week I do this otherwise I never think about it. I want a protocol that I just and I don't know if this is it so I still am in the middle of figuring during that part of it up. I think I've come a long way in body acceptance. I totally think I'm hell except for my blood. Sugar being high which could come from other reasons thousands but it's probably from how much alcohol drinking sugary that science is pretty clear that those things 'cause I accept accepted myself in huge strides this year of how I look when I go to costume fittings. I don't have any thoughts about what size. Anything is or embarrassment in about it. When I go to events in Hollywood I no longer care now? Part of that is getting older. So it's a cheat. No one cares how you look anymore. More join them and thirty one. No but that is that either was going to happen anyway because I was getting lean older or it happened because of internal work I've done but I like to think it's because I've come to an acceptance about how I look that is that is a huge hurdle I would say I have gone over without hurdle but okay so the plan is you're on your third day just when we you're on day three. It's January soy started at the. I guess you may go to January January fifth or seventh. If I feel like I'm really going I'M GONNA go to but I've never done that before I've done. I've done four or five day fasts then and you'll return to eating something. Yes whatever you want then I just whatever I want whatever you feel yes okay. So we'll see we'll l.. See how it goes. Yeah we'll check back in P. E. IT is it from Jelly horror. Either way..

Yes it's just to reset the system from the holiday God that well maybe I should put the fried chicken back in the Carpool. You'll be sculling fried chicken. I okay what. You're actually trying not to tell you fasting because one I made a huge announcement is never going on a diet again. Even though I don't consider the fast I see I see uh-huh every fasting completely asking just as it might God you. How will we ninety four so I know what it's like it's funny? We have completely different body responses to it. I my response shutdown. He wants to lay on the couch with his arms over his chest. Sir I have. I'm like it's four in the morning goal doping yet. I need to go for a run. I have so energy. I've already been running canyon I've already walked enlargement. I'm going to go on a huge web later. I get enormous energy from fasting. Wow so my ancestors as I say to Michael. We're the ones that got up and got the rabbits. Yeah in the morning opera. His ancestors just thought. I guess it's time for I live to be done. Can't stash the food settle into the living room and Julia launches into her holiday. Post mortem it was like Barkan Dalia. It was like there were nights right eating so much that I get up in vomit because of just like what is it Rome in the the last days of Rome like I have eaten so much we can we just because there was great food around the house it was like yeah and also I'm traveling and I can eat what I wander winebrenner flying me first class per flying in the bottle so did this started with it because I thought I feel really uncomfortable in my body but I don't want to go on a diet I made all down soon. I'M NOT GONNA be on a diet and then I thought based on all the signs I know and everything I've read and that we've done together. What if I just had a protocol like a religion because there's also comes from being my friends and my Muslim family in Chicago? I don't know if that I opted out so I did Ramadan with them and everything I really like. It's a religion some religious fast. What if my personal philosophy of life slash religion is two times a year? I do a five to seven. They fast otherwise. I eat whatever I wanted any time except for one day we have a one day a week fast in between so it and then otherwise. Don't think about it. And then whatever weight I land on. That's my life like it's really and it's also because my blood sugar's really high so I don't want to be diabetic so I'm trying to avoid that too but without restricting myself and being able to drink as much as I want and have dessert and also little John's toffee. Yeah yeah I know like. It's very contradictory. I'm saying all the things I vowed I'd never say to anyone. And that's because of the magic of Hugh You have that effect act on sleep on. I think walking up cheeses and I am aborted meal that we're not gonNA sorry hilarious. It's even better because we're just so energized food. That is the in another room so when you think of like what your last meal would be. Oh yes which I often think. Okay so what is is your. What's your last meal your death row use murdered? Hopefully not your husband. No you had to be unfair. It has to be wrong okay. Why why you've while you're dying okay? Okay has to be an unfair death. Okay how so and the reason I say that is if you really did kill the people. I think you should be thinking how this is Justin right that you should die. Maybe you shouldn't have anything before. Are you talking my west meal is it's completely wrong but I can't control anything. I'm about to die okay. So you've been accused of something something that's wrong but I can't can't change it. Yeah and somebody's willing to give me anything. Okay probably would have a really fatty steak. Done rare grilled a rare. I would have my family recipe of potatoes romanoff which is potatoes with cream cheese and sour cream and tons of cheddar cheese and onions. And it's very good. I would have Brussels sprouts and Bacon. I would have actually like vegetables. I would have some grilled vegetables really. Yeah I don't I wouldn't wanNA feel feel sick going into the chamber. You don't want to vomit on yourself as you're getting the injection. So adding SUISA adding Brussel sprouts with Bacon. No but that's so good to me. I could have that completely. But and then I'd have bread pudding with caramel sauce and and whip cream that does sound any and a lot of red wine and a lot of red wine. Yeah I mean I would eat all those things anyway in Mike Strange Kito not quite bread diet but always buy gas. Then I'm constantly buying everybody else on my household because I famously don't eat bread. I feel that if I'm standing in the kitchen and tear it off with just like it and then just the white part and just eat the cross slathered in butter 'cause because the butter that just like out so all my God so I probably would go like a straight pasta situation because the state that you'd discuss until he was being good yet because it's a total atkins like they say. Eat Steak but I do. Just love steak. I love steak in red wine in fact in January when I don't drink plus the other thing my January. Don't drink which I've done. It used to be land. Now it's January I won't even have steak because to me if you can't have red wine with steak shouldn't even have steak. What's the point rather certain foods that if you don't have eight if you can't have a Margarita with chips and Guacamole? I don't see why you have any chips and Guacamole you. How bipolar am in this morning at Runyon Canyon and just now? I'm listening to the PODCAST. Food psychology with Lisa Harrison. which is the anti diet food? podcast asked that completely turned me on to health at every size. This is all bullshit. The whole Wait cycling industry. I love that term. Like weight watches all that. They're just they know that you're going to gain it back and they're going to have you back like the whole and the way hold the sciences such crap and that the whole idea that people who are heavier are necessarily less healthy than other people has a lot of problems with it. So I'm listening to that while I'm going around on my fast. Until how long have you been doing this over January. Well I just moved it to January. I did it for lent my whole life. I used to huma chocolate for lent before I could drink and then every year that it was lent even when I stop believing in God and was definitely not a Catholic on fat Tuesday. I I would have a lot to drink and then Ash Wednesday which if I did go to mass. It was on Ash Wednesday because I felt like that was the only day the character told the truth from ashes. You came to to ashes. You shall return. They put the APP on your forehead And that's Ash. Wednesday starts length. So it's about forty days and then I gave a chocolate the and Y.. An alcohol and then my friend Bob Bloomer who does sober January's got me into the sober January and it's less it's only thirty days. Not Forty days. What I like about it is that it proves that? I don't have a problem.

QUAINT Greenwich Village apartment. It is Super Queens. Okay so even though this podcast was called sleepless in Los Angeles and there you are awake in Manhattan. There's a connection I mean Los Angeles is a state of being while Manhattan is what is it. Well your maybe a state of anxiety as much as much as a state of being New York is the big apple while as my musician. Nations ex-husband used to say Los Angeles is receding carrot. So sad but true. I should note that we're talking on on January first New Year's Day like well behaved people it is eleven. Am My time two PM Yours. You got a little more wiggle room on that one. Now ask any Alfred Alfred. How was your New Year's Eve? It was super anti-climactic because we had actually been out past midnight the the two evenings prior yeah go figure I mean for a person over fifty. That's like the the a marathon of festivity so we just we played real low key last night so we you know I've heard the people of our age of the go-to Madonna Concert. And because Madonna doesn't go onto like twelve thirty in the morning lawsuits are happening actual losses. Have you heard uh I heard that the woman in Florida who sued and then I also heard that madge is doing on audience interaction and and is apparently not terribly polite or or smooth with any sort of hurting people's feelings in the audience did did you say mad madge. Yes is what my my people call her. As I'd like to say not only are we born two days. Apart you are February thirteenth. I eh eleven nine hundred sixty two. I don't mind saying Aquarians. Both will always be your elder. No matter what just as a Madonna madge will always be four years older than me though. I will always be seventy five pounds heavier so the topic at hand. This fine January first is his new year's resolutions January being as I like to the month of enlightened self loathing If you go into the history of it you could say the Babylonians did the Romans did it. The Christians did but further now supposedly you don't during the Great Depression. A quarter of American adults for New Year's resolutions whereas come to the turn of the century about half of all American adults formed and half will fail. So it's kind of a very first world problem. If you Wilson like we're peasants saying we hope on January first. The Tar will give us more money. We got to berate ourselves from having ingested too many things in first world way I think so how about you. Where do you stand on this issue of New Year's resolutions? Where do you stand on it? Personal one of my resolutions for this here is super first world. And that is that I would like to be calmer in the face of technological mishap uh-huh which is to say. I know that those those Nablus the automatic sinks in public bathrooms. I know that the the the those are supposed to make my life easier so I'm just going to relax into that noble intention rather than can focus on the highly irritating actuality which is that they they seem to single me out and I cannot activate the sings so you mean there. You'RE GONNA fluttering karate chops at Nocera to motion and you. You just can't do it precisely now I it could be. I could be doing some kind of like Origami Situation with the hand the fluttering and the and nothing so then you you sort of run over to the edge of the bathroom and you look to see if their paper towels and there aren't and then you run back it. Just it's a weird little dance chance. Well I think just you don't maybe if I'm just armchair quarterbacking here from the other end of the country I think the Origami fluttering thing thing. That's what I mean. I think maybe a standard calmly willing it to happen. You know instead of doing the stabbing thing. The I'm just picturing Hugh Henry through your Ram Right.
