"Because if i save the planet than i have done something that's going to transcend my death but anyway so people are telling themselves that these things are going to somehow provide the with immortality on and on it's a religion at that point diet is what they're worshipping their worshiping the earth or Worshiping something themselves because they're trying to make them immortal and you pointed out clay even if we were to get really good at taking care of ourselves in and improve our ability to live longer. The whole universe is going to go to death. It doesn't matter how you know. Eat the chocolate. Forget about the kale. today it's going. It's going down if any right so you take care of your body because user actually are doing something that's going to matter into eternity if there is indeed an eternity thing turns as you point out in your book in the book again is called immortal.

Jesus rose from the dead so we can get into that maybe later if we have time but clay this. This is so important because people are literally lying to themselves as you put it. They're trying to cover up their angst by trying to put something in eternity place they're trying to make eternity of their own their own making somehow and this just doesn't work in fact i was reading sexual yearbook today. Clay i want you to comment on this you were pointing out people who are killers trying anchin is and i think you mentioned the charles lindbergh kidnapping that there were over two hundred people that came forward and said they were the kidnapper.

This is a Unique Problem--So We Need a Unique Solution
"Well. Thank you all for joining. I am really excited to talk to each of you because this conversation is really important especially as we move into the holidays and to start JJ often talks about how one of the things we do is often sort of a school house rock just defining our terms and sort of getting on the same page. So to that and I was wondering if we could talk about what suicide is it's mainly what is something that every American should know about that's quite a question. Yeah, right. Well, it's interesting. I I found myself sort of stunned by the question frankly because it's such a question. Yeah. It's such a huge sort of waited question. But I guess I would say first and foremost suicides an epidemic. I mean, I think it's a massive public health problem in our country and log Those of us that care greatly about veterans and about the military connected Community. It is a major and and really important problem in in those communities and one that people smartest people in the world have been trying to figure this out for a while and I think we're finally starting with all these conversations coming together. I think we're finally starting to potentially knock on some wood here. We're potentially maybe getting to this point where we're going to be able to crack this a little bit. I'm feeling thoughtful about it about about our ability to potentially make make a dent in that sat at last and in my comments are really a follow-on to this, you know, my my answer to talk to Americans need to know about suicide is how complex it is that it is massively complex and we haven't figured it out, which is essentially what Heidi just said and I agree. There's there's reason Hope we're really bad at predicting it right we could we can list off 12 or 16 warning signs. And then we can acknowledge that there are hundreds and thousands and innumerable warning signs that there's no definitive list. There are a lot of warning signs and none of them accurately predict who will die by Suicide. So that's one piece that that needs to be said, it's really complicated and we haven't fully figured it out yet. The other thing that needs to be said is we are getting closer to how to knowing how to treat it that we do know that we do have methods that prevent suicide that treat suicide and that's that's just as important as figuring out how to predict it right? I mean, even if we can't predict it we can prevent it. I mean both of those things actually can go together and one of the ways that song We know we can prevent it is through I mean, I'm kind of jumping to the chase here, but you know, lethal means safety and how to store Firearms is a reliable valid way to prevent suicide so I don't need to mean to blow past these other important more general questions, but that's a really important thing that I think we need to say up front. I don't know that we saved up front all the time. One thing. I think a lot of people don't know is that if you do limit access to a a method that someone was planning to use them and does not go on to find a different way. This is I think I teach this when I teach it and I I am baffled by the number of people in my audience have no idea about that. I think that is a that is a math out there that people will find a way if this is where they are and that's just the literature just doesn't back that up. So yeah, just just kind of reinforcing what Ted just said Thursday. To take a related but a little bit similarly different track. I think something that's often a misnomer is that suicide isn't a individual problem or a just a mental problem or just a clinical problem either? I think we need to this goes I think to some of what he was talking about it being an epidemic in a Public Health crisis and that way that it is a it's an American problem and it needs American Solutions in that in terms of like it's a public problem that needs public Solutions and both in the fact that suicide doesn't just impact the individual who has taken their life it you know, I think readers shows that for every every time an individual takes their life. It's your there are a hundred plus people who are directly impacted by wage loss of that individual and I think when we were talking about some communities in particular that makes it even more of a, you know, bigger bigger ripple effect of communities like the military Community, for example It's so important what you just said because another myth is that suicide is just about depression and therefore the domain of psychologists or the mental health field, but we know that that's not true. There are different studies and research and populations and etc. Etc. And anywhere between 50 and 90% We don't need to get into a specific statistic other than to say about half of at least about half of the people that died by Suicide do not have a diagnosable mental illness, which means it's about something besides mental illness suicide remains a problem. It doesn't mean that mental health professionals can't help those people also, but we have to look elsewhere besides just professional Mental Health Providers to solve this problem. It's a much bigger problem than I mean we know this that if you treat if you just give people treatment for depression, we don't address the issue. Problem of suicide the suicide numbers don't go down. So we have to look at other ways to address the problem of

Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids.

Will be eligible again in 2022. This is the day states must certify the results of the November
Looking back at the reaction to John Lennon's death 40 years ago today
"Today, the former Beatle John Lennon was killed in New York in an act of violence that shocked millions of his fans and then had been shot by a disturbed fan as he returned to his home the Dakota apartment building with his wife, Yoko Ono. Reporting live from the Dakota for BBC News at that time was Tom Brook 40. Years on Tom, who lives in New York, has been taking a very personal look back at his memories of that night and exploring Lenin's growing legacy today. Imagine where Snow heaven John Lennon's anthem Imagine is routinely performed by musicians and fans in Strawberry fields that section of New York Central Park dedicated to the former Beatles memory. Just across the street from the Dakota apartment building. 40 years ago, the Dakota was where John Lennon's life came to a sudden and horrific end. Millions of Americans first heard the news while watching Monday night football on the ABC network. Unspeakable tragedy. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City, shot twice in the back dead on arrival. It's half past six time for today. Good Good morning morning from from Brian Brian Redhead Redhead and and Libby Libby Purvis. Purvis. The The former former Beatle Beatle John John Lennon Lennon has has been been shot shot dead dead outside outside his his home home in in New New York York in in London. London. The The BBC's BBC's Today program was on the air, bringing first news of Lennon's death to British audiences. I had rushed to the Dakota found a public phone booth on West 72nd Street. Everyone around me. Lennon fans were crying soon I was on the air talking. Can you tell us exactly what happened. John Lennon was killed two hours ago. I got most of my information from talking to the literally hundreds of fans who are now congregating outside the Dakota building where they're going to hold on all night vigil, and it's a very weird scene indeed, because they're playing Lennon music. A lot of them are in tears and they're weeping on there, either stunned or they're hysterical. That seems like a long time ago and itwas over the years I've watched this journalist colleagues have covered the deaths of other pop culture figures, but none seem to bring forth the collective grief Witness with John Lennon. Celebrated New York photographer Bob Gruen was one of Lenin's friends. Well, the reaction to his death was worldwide. And it was such a shock. You know that he died, and then he died so violently. When all his life you've been talking about peace and trying to help others imagine peace. And here he was shot for that. But 40 years on the trauma has receded on John Lennon now has a new generation of fans some very young among them. 10 year old Yasha, Kigali's who I met in Strawberry Fields. I like the words and I like the music and I like the room and how it all goes together. I think that it's about something that is very important. Imagine novel the people today in these pandemic weary, conflict ridden times. Young musicians like Tom McKay, Hearn and Seattle really embrace Lenin's message. The fact that he emphasized love and peace and this idea of striving for something that doesn't currently exist. I still see that message is something that we need. Thinking about something that's beyond ourselves is just incredibly powerful. Not everything in relation to Lenin was wondrous. He could be mean and nasty, and he admitted that he abused women. None of this has really affected his legacy. If anything, his stature as a musician has grown since he died, it's still making an impact. As music journalist Jordan run talk explains. He has one of the truly great voices in rock history. And now you have artists like Liam Gallagher of Oasis and then modern bands like Tame Impala and cut worms who will get that very specific went and asked vocal sound because it's such a trademark. Hold someday join us. Today I live just four blocks from the Dakota. Sometimes I wander into strawberry fields. I think what I like most about Lenin was that he had an authentic voice. Not just musically. He did and said some stupid things, but he wasn't a fake something quite refreshing to ponder. In our age of endless posturing by politicians and celebrities. No problem.
Remembering when Howard Cosell announced he death of John Lennon
"Time out, is called three seconds remaining. John Smith is on the line and I don't care what's on the line. Howard, you have got to say way. No in the booth. Yes, we have to say it. Remember, this is just a football game. No matter who wins or loses and unspeakable tragedy confirmed to us by ABC News in New York City. John Lennon, outside of his apartment building on the west side of New York City. The most famous perhaps of all of the Penis, shot twice in the back, rushed the Roosevelt Hospital dead on arrival. Hard to go back to the game. After that news flash, which in duty bound we have to take Right I need it is remember remember watching watching that that money money night game because I'm the oldest of 45 in here. I remember that when Howard Cosell reported that Mark David Chapman had murdered John Lennon in front of his apartment in New York. And wow, There was no social media back then. But the outpouring of great people were devastated. Devastated. Remember Princess Diana? Member seeing people lined up on Michigan Avenue. They were having some type of a memorial to her in Chicago because she had been here over at Northwestern and this one, and when Elvis that, like those three stick out in my mind, remembering those being announced Am I? Harry Carey, talking about the death of Elvis and crying. Harry and Elvis were tight. And you had John Lennon and this one. It was unbelievable. I know for those who have never heard that clip. They say. You know, Howard Cosell just can't kind is barreling in with the news. You gotta understand that Howard had no finesse. Like that voice and the the cadence. That's who he was. You would think you know, Living more somber, You know, eh, Frank? We've got some sad news, but he did the way he did it. You know if you hear the way he did, as on arrived, yes, that he comes barreling in with the news. But that's who Howard Woz, and so it actually is more jolting when he gives the news. And you know, Howard puts it in perspective, though. I gotta give him credit. He says just a football game. But I got you this news, Frank back to you. And I know you know what Franklin for does after that, That's gonna be tough hearing that news because of just how How much the Beatles and how much John Lennon meant in that era. No question. Do you know it's crazy, but that's so hard. He brings up the game right, so there were three seconds left in the game at that point. It was Patriots Dolphins. The scheme was tied at 13, and they sent in Patriots kicker John Smith Toe win the game. This is Howard Cosell makes the announcement three seconds left. Here comes the kicker Patriots kicker John Smith to kick the game winning field goal and it was blocked. That game went into overtime in the Dolphins won it But like there's a story on ESPN dot com today that the kicker John Smith will forever be linked to this because it's like right after Howard Cosell, who's one of the most you know, notorious broadcasters of all time, announces such an event. Then millions of people watching are glued to their seats, sees this poor man have to go in there. He probably doesn't even know what's going on. But he's gets his field goal blocked, and now he's forever linked to it. Yeah, I remember watching that money and I found ball. Thank you. Monday night football. Woz, eh? It was a thing, man. It was a happening like we didn't have Game on month. Two games on Monday. Oh, Tuesday, we're gonna play. Oh, we gotta shut this. We're gonna play it on Wednesday and we got Thursday night football. We got 40,000 didn't have all that There wasn't even son in a football. No, it was Sunday afternoon. You had a late game. That would sometimes get you know you served by Heidi, right? Um, correct, but But when you didn't have that going on, it was it was money Money. Knight was the only night game going on. During that time. Money? No, it was the only time I can get that all the highlights of the week also is why Berman does it kind of been a traditional manner on my football today. You've seen the highlights a million times, but it just Berman in there. Give that gravitas of what? It was back in the day. So yes. Oh, my night football had such a such an enormous event. It was it was that for and also money that baseball for me as well, Because it is part of the brand going night football. Think of money. I'd baseball. The Tigers are playing with the lights. That's interesting. Yeah, Esso. It Z one of those things cap where When you have that kind of news now, keep in mind. They didn't break into the game, ABC News or anything else like that? It was announced right there at the game, Correct. It was strong, right? It wasn't We have to break away because we've got major news. Here's you know. What's that? Peter Jennings? No, no, no, no, no, Howard. And you know, in his ear there like you got to announce this and you've got to do it right now. Because I think it was the right decision. I mean, that was a massive massive name.

We have children at schools being killed whether it's connecticut or florida and we have people being shot down every day in the inner cities another small towns and throughout our country counties cities people who turned to violence and guns to solve their problems at there at the first sign of a problem often so beyond the laws you know i hope that as we move forward were also able to try to find a way to reach into communities are reaching their families and educate people and give them alternative ways to solve their problems rather than violence and guns to prove that they're macho. Were a powerful or just to use them to make a point. We have to change the attitudes in our country to not just the laws
Taking On Gun Laws in Hawaii
"Two. We're going back to the idea of an urpo law or protection law. He only purchase the gun for the purpose. He said quite explicitly of committing this crime. He bought it six. I believe only six weeks before he went to new york the first time so again you have him telling his wife about this where she could now. In very specific places under specific rulings could go in front of a judge. And say this is. The situation could call on foresee. This is the situation. He just purchased a gun. This is what he's saying but unfortunately at the time and in many states still there's very little option that she had there. And why would you not want to prevent that kind of violence ever. Why would you not want to have a legislative legal path for somebody to say. This person is told me they are. They're intending to commit murder with this gun. Call that's a. That's a great segue for carl who wanna get involved in this conversation. It's talked about half cited to bring the law to fruition in. And how it's working out. I think it's What i've learned about guns over the years it's the shortest distance between two points is not always a straight line. And there's a lot of beard non-linear ironies about what what is actually useful. what's not and just starting with what we think it was. Kelly talked about that. We've already talked about in. This conversation is having a gun in many cases actually more dangerous than not having a gun. Now it's not always true. And that's what makes setting policy for for firearms or a difficult because there's definitely an urban rural split where there are things that you were. You need a gun in the country that you really don't in the city and in the city they're not really used for much of anything except for senseless murders with the exception of You know sony breaks into your apartment in the middle of the night. I would certainly feel like your new justified in shooting them but so there there's a lot of there's a lot of non air guns aren't always bad but i agree that there should be. There is if you've already pointed out in many states is Red flag flag laws. That at least give a person a fighting chance to There's still a lot of things that can go wrong. I mean if his white. If i don't i don't even know his name the campaign not to give a elicits. People who've killed people with guns is work. Because i don't even know the guy's name you'd know i rosa but anyway if his if that law if the law that we have now had been in effect then they're still. It was still a little bit of a long shot that anything would have happened but at least if you have it. There's a chance there's a chance that someone says wow that's that's really kinda bonkers we better. We better contact better. Find an attorney. Who can file petition and see guns takeaway temporarily until this mood passes or until he's gotten help so it's not there's no panacea there but one of the reasons i supported was i thought actually passed when we pass the bill in hawaii. I didn't realize that it was much more effective against suicide than it is for other of for other killings even for non suicides it gives people who want to intervene who who loves somebody enough to intervene. Don't want them to go kill somebody. It gives them a chance. And i think that's why it's important. Can i ask a question that car that kelly asked or brought up earlier mind. How did you balance freedom right because this is the endless debate that we all encounter my freedoms and my freedoms are absolute and calculated in the context obviously of new york city and personal freedom. But i'm curious how you legislatively balanced individual freedoms or rights with public safety here is it was debated and what we finally settled on. Was the first motion that you make as many of your lawyers and experts say motion which means the other party doesn't have to be there. You just go straight to the judge. So we'd put up the final version of the bill puts in a provision that says you can file an exporting worship motion which means you don't have to talk to the person that's about but that only lasts for fourteen days and within fourteen days you go in you have to serve the they have to serve the parties you know as a gun who's were concerned about and then the judge will get testimony from both sides and make a decision from there so the the the short answer is due process. No constitutional right is absolute. But if you're going to take away. Generally you have to have due process and that's how we worked in the due process in this situation.

"lennon" Discussed on What Difference Does It Make
"Welcome back to the. What difference does it make. Podcast and our tribute and acknowledgement of the anniversary of john lennon's assassination grin is the famed rock photographer. And also the author of a new memoir place right time but also a good friend of the lennon's i mean took some family photos and then you you were entrusted in nineteen eighty two kind of at the record plant and you recorded like all this. It was secret the said this double fantasy record in summer. It was a told secret. Didn't know where they were going with it and they didn't want any interruptions. Are certainly there might press about it. They wanted to to work without the distractions. But but you know yoko jones. She said be ready for us to call you in july. But i can't tell you what it is like all you did it surprise you back in the studio no surprise me The whole world was waiting for them but I had actually done a postcode from johnson. My john lennon book. Also i don't even in the new york years The postcode during the time he was raising. Sean and on the front is a picture of two people in the newspaper. Who did and on the back was a picture of a brace sun. And just a self portrait of yokoun sean. And it just seemed like in. The news was a negative idea. And he and your sean sprite sunshine of life and that was a time when people say john lennon wise any working. That post really sums up why he was working and unfortunately is prophetically true when he did come back where we all know what happened now. This is forty years ago Where where were you at the time. in studio Around december six simple theft and we were up on night friday night until saturday morning and actually thursday night infighting night and i took some patients of them on the sidewalk in front of a record plan on forty fourth street. Saturday morning johnson. I'll see you later and his home at my darker monday night. Developing those issues china finished up in a rush into action supposed to see them. That might an shoulder patient. Before i went to voicemail. And i phone call that he had been shot and of course the first shot doesn't mean dead and then a friend of mine called up and city on the tv. That john was dead and now is the worst. Most prominent thing. I ever heard casino. What you can fix that. We can make that better since then. It's a such a sad endings. Essentially create story. But i'm trying to think about the forty years that we did have an all the art music that we got from john lennon and he did an interview november the month before he died with david sheff playboy magazine whose excess an interview and he talks about how he was feeling and what he learned. Well in the five years will raising show on and he learned about Healthy diet he learned actually unusually for john lennon. You learned about delayed gratification. He learned about the responsibility and the joy that comes from taking care of your family and he talks about all of that in the playboy interview on bringing up. Because that's going to be republished next month. I believe people want to know about john lennon. They can hear from john lennon in the plate. We into rather than hearing other people talk about it. You want to see my book. John on the new york years has some great stories in my new book. Out of you you portrayed that shift nicely to talked about him discovering the macaroni macrobiotic diet and and other healthy lifestyle choices. Like you're talking about. We did talk about it in a book a little bit very important. He went from being a drunk rock rockstar. In the beginning to being a responsible parent by the end it was a real chance for mason. Masonry learning process. It was very lovely the way you portrayed the friendship and getting to know them in the family really interesting. Yeah and you're still close with with yoko. And sean and all yeah. So that's wonderful. We also are talking with tim english. Who was kind of like us but a little bit older and was in college at the time and so he's going to tell his story of what went on at the time when he was in college. He's got a book out. It's called john lennon. Nineteen eighty playlist. Which is is kind of a cool premise. For the book he researched the music that john lennon was listening to in nineteen eighty documents of for us. And it's very interesting to see and it kind of gives you a. Oh window into. John lennon's musical preferences which was really nice. So holly have you read the aerosmith burke. We interviewed richard beanstalk. But you actually go through the book. I read the book and i looked at the book. I admired all the photos. The book is called. The ultimate illustrated history of the bad boys from boston. This is an updated edition in honor of their fiftieth anniversary. And yes i did read it. How about you yes. It's fun to look at. It's one of those things where you read it and then just a leisurely pace actually because there's so many great pictures and Mementos and just memories of aerosmith and you kind of go down the rabbit hole of like. Oh man i remember remember. This record was really fun and that you ranked pictures everything the memorabilia that ticket stubs. Everything was fabulous to look at but there were so many stories. There was some. It's illustrated history. But it is chock full of information about the band. It is kind of like when you get a cd. Set of a ban. Aerosmith is put out the box. And you open up. And there's a small booklet and you get you know maybe like forty pages of information and it kind of covers a little bit of the ban. This book covers everything. It's really great. I highly recommend you go out and pick this up at all. Your favorite independent bookstores. What is the name of this book again because this is a mouth bowl. It is a mouthful aerosmith. Fiftieth anniversary updated edition. The ultimate illustrated history of the bad boys from boston. Where were you in. Nineteen eighty on december eighth nineteen eighty dorm room in. Providence rhode island Watching monday night. Football and i was one of the worst nights in my life Devastated you howard. Cosell amman. deliver the news and you know sometimes do these things they say. Well he's been taken to the hospital and maybe he's got a ball through. And that was the case with michael jackson taken to the hospital but in this case just said that said he's do a at the hospital. So it's just a heartbreaking devastating Thing i think for anybody who was around. But especially if you were a beatles fan and a lennon like yeah It's amazing that that's the same story for for most beatles fans. I mean everyone discovered in the us. Everyone discovered the beatles on ed sullivan. Everyone was watching it celebrate. It seems like everyone was what at the time. One thousand nine hundred eighty. All of america watches monday night football. And that's really how everyone heard the story absolutely one of the things i tried to join. The focus provide a little background on the world of nine thousand nine hundred eighty and l. We said different world and a lot of ways some some way similar but as far as communication went. I mean you mentioned two things. Beatles on at solvent sixty four were seventy five million people watch. The only tv show gets set audience today as the super bowl. I mean there's no you couldn't replicate that even if you wanted to is just too much media and too many different options likewise nine thousand nine hundred eighty and i don't know we didn't why was we didn't have cable until a year or two later wanted to you're watching. Tv no confront attainment Monday night you had five or six choices. One of which was monday night. But also i mean it was just a very different If you wanted to hear a song you love at that time you had to turn on the right to go out and buy it or turn on the radio and that they might have some so you know pretty younger readers especially i tried to show you know. Different was and a long time ago now..

"Good as john. Henry was a steel drive a man. I think it's better. i like it. better really. Yeah and you know like we mentioned early. The reason we know all this was because of wieners reporting and he eventually got those documents released and there. Was you know in his circle. There was a big hubbub. Like what's going to be in there. what what secrets are will be revealed and really not much what was revealed was Embarrassment for the fbi embarrassment that they released a picture that wasn't even john lennon embarrassment that they had a very unethical And perhaps even the motivation behind trying to get this person deported and it was just on the face and that's why they tried to keep it under wraps for so many years hoping that it would not get out not because there were some big revealing documents but they were just like. Can we just sort of act like this. Didn't happen yeah. So we'll we'll classify everything is a national security risk. And they did. Actually that lasts trove of documents. Little handful that trickled out in two thousand six was a. m. i five kind of british secret service File on lennon that the us said if they it was it it that that last bit of document contained a file from a foreign government that had trusted the us to keep it and that it could result in economic diplomatic and military action. If they were to release it like the uk was just gonna going to bomb the us for releasing their documentary or file on john lennon. That's why the fbi held onto until two thousand six and then they lost a court case so like if there's a hero of the story it's jon wiener or john. Winer don't know how he says his name. And i'm sorry either way. Because he was the one. That really stood up for john lennon. But for the first amendment. You know and people's ability to be politically active without you. Know the threat of being intimidated So good for him. Totally you got anything else about this. Got nothing else. I have a an article that direct everybody touts on pop matters john lennon. Colon revolutionary man as political artists. And it's about all this sorry history but also just Pretty good critical evaluation of him as an activist. And it's a really good interesting article so check it out. And since i said check it out everybody. It's time for a listener mail. This is in reference of our haunted real estate. Guess that was a short stuff right. Had to be yeah. Please tell me we didn't do forty minutes on that. we could. Hey guys been a listener for years and finally have a good reason to write you. I was listening to the episode on whether you're supposed to disclose whether houses haunted or not the hit close to home two years ago. We bought our first house and made a point to run a report to see if anyone died in the house. The previous owner had just died within the air. But it didn't say where. I wasn't really worried about someone actually dying in the house. I was really just trying to get a big discount. However the agent said he had no snow. Big discount Cut two years later found out for neighbors and research that the previous owner did not die however he was a creep who actually had multiple abuse charges. In fact i found an article stating that. He had a woman tied up in our basement. Man who tortured until she was luckily able to escape for weeks That's almost worse than just a regular dying of natural causes. It's a million times worse. Well no. I was about to say worse than murder. I guess they're on par. Yeah well this debate that wing. I don't want to don't want to rank awful crimes. But i think that might creep me out just as much. Let's just say that sure The police searched the house and found oodles of weapons. The charges were eventually dropped. Apparently he had money and he redid the entire basement which is beyond creepy. I don't know if this qualifies as info that should have been provided us at purchase. It sure seems like it That is from andy. Andy i okay. Well thanks a lot. Andy is is there a heart over the i know but it's typed is it Could be Andie macdowell i think. She spells her name like that. I can see something. like this. Happening to any mcdowell cancer. I love well. Whether it's from andy mcdowell or not we appreciate the email Thank you. And yes. I i agree. I think the realtor should have disclosed that he asked me totally If you want to let us know about some way a realtor wrong to you or anybody did we want to hear about it. You can send us an email to stuff. Podcast iheartradio dot com.
"lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"All right so john lennon is not gonna take this lying down He was paranoid. He was going on the mike. Douglas show and talking about the fbi coming after him First thing he did was probably any really really rich person would do as he hires a top rate bulldog attorney To try and defend this or at least delay this and this guy's name was leeann wilds and he really did delay this. He was sort of a master at filing these motions and getting extended and extended and lenin was able to stay in the country longer and longer and longer but he was also instrumental in Kind of leading linen. No this was a real situation that he was involved in right The thing is if you are a immigration prosecutor for the federal government of the united states. You know that there is not a ton of resources allocated to your division right or traditionally there hasn't been and so customarily the justice department has or i guess i n s has left it up to each prosecutor to determine how hard they want to prosecute the case. And so if you are a Upstanding person who's never posed any sort of threat to the united states and Maybe own a business or your productive member of society. There is a chance that the ins is going to look the other way not actually deport you even if you are here illegally. You've overstayed your visa. Came to the country illegally. Who knows And that's actually where. The dreamer program came from dhaka Basically said like the these particular immigrants were brought here as children and they pose no threat. Most of them are going to college. College bound there in the military. So we're going to not deport them. and what what lennon's lawyer told him was like all of this is true and yet they're putting the heat on you like i have never seen this is. This is clearly coming down from on high like they want to get you out of the united states and it's not just this prosecutor. Yeah and the other thing. That happens When it comes to a a case like this is they have to weigh Or they can be decided basically on the value than an immigrant Might bring to the us by being in american Living in the united states and so there was a you know. It's kind of funny to look back now and think that there had to be a case made that john lennon brings any kind of value but they did. And there was a series of letters written by bob dylan giambi says and joyce carol oates leonard. Bernstein john updike just a series of very famous artist. Kind of arguing in favor of john lennon being allowed to live here. It was sort of a flood of public outcry. Like what you know what little was known back then. At least like you can't just. There's tremendous value to john lennon. Stay in this country right. Don't forget john cage. Wrote a letter to and i'm sure it was kind of like well you know. Do you want me to write a letter for you john. He's like a yeah sure. I'm sure that would help a lot. John cage because sure no one in the nixon administration's ever heard of you. Yeah probably so. So the the one kind of the upshot. I'm just going full on using this word now. The upshot of of that letter writing campaign was not even just so much to demonstrate the value of of john lennon remaining in the united states. It was if you kick about like there's going to be a public outcry and you're going to be held to account and asked to explain why you guys kicked him out So did have a bit of that combined with His his attorneys tenacity. It kept john lennon in the country. He was actually never deported. Even though they were he had he lived for. I think two or three years with you have sixty days to leave the country order and his his lawyer kept getting extended an extended and extended but for three years. That was the threat that he was living under and again. If he was deported he would leave without his wife who had seen the country for her own custody battle So that was that was a lot of strain on him actually and The the the worst part about this whole thing is not that the fbi did this. And that the nixon administration single matter that it all came down to strom thurmond writing this memo to kick things off. It was that it worked like they sought to neutralize john lennon and his political activism. And he stopped he actually did. He gave in In august nineteen seventy two by announcing that he was going to take part in that series of concerts that was going to culminate at the republican national convention or engage in any kind of activist activities. Any longer. he's just going to go back to being a a musician again. Yeah and by this point Hoover was dead L patrick gray was the acting director of the fbi and in that same month that august before the election in november. The fbi's new york office reported to grade that he's no longer going to be involved with these concerts. He's no longer with the new left We don't really need to worry about anymore. we're gonna basically settle this case and close this case after nixon wins the election and like we said earlier a couple of times by a landslide. So this is all sort of for not anyway Gerald ford ended up overturning linens. Deportation order nineteen seventy five. That was already filed and in seventy six. He got his green card and lived in new york. Very famously and the dakota for the last four years of his life before he was murdered in the street Which i think we should do an upset on that at some point maybe in a couple years once this one is well in revere. You bet that'd be a good one So if if john lennon apparently before he died he gave a couple interviews and he said of this time like that. It nearly ruined him as an artist. In like you said he wasn't he wasn't just not sweating like he's sweated it every day. It was a big hairy problem in his life. All the time in a source of great stress so in in addition to the stress it it stole his focus like it made him think about that. In like how much he hated the nixon administration. How terrible the fbi was for how they were harassing him and possibly tapping his phone and it just took his mind from his art and he later said that it almo- almost ruined him as an artist because the work he was producing at the time was journalism not poetry as he put it and which is a very sad effect. But it's it's a really real world affect when you've got something just looming in the front of your mind that you can't get out of your mind especially if it's dealing with badness that's that has a terrible effect on you and and your life in general it can produce an entire bad period of your life you know yeah He was like. I had to let yoko sing a lot. I've got. I have something i have to say. I don't want to forget it in one of the fbi notes at that. Johnson claire concert The fbi informant reported that the song johnson. Claire was not up to lennon's usual standard and yoko can't even remain on key was it. Fbi informant. he had a good year. But you know. I like the song. It doesn't belong up there with his greatest songs but it was very. It was very clear. It was sort of in the tradition of protest songs. It's got this acoustic slide. Dobro guitar and You know it sort of it fits in with the great folk songs of all time. I think but not necessarily one of the great linen or beatles. Songs is it as.
"lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Well were there any illegal ones that you're not going to tell us about. Yeah i i read an interview so this is like the depths of depravity. I didn't even listen to the interview. I read a fresh air interview with jon wiener or wigner about this and he said that. In the fbi responded. And said they found no evidence of illegal wiretapping. By the fbi or no legal wiretapping by the fbi. So so weiner's like okay. Does that mean they were doing illegal. Wiretapping or does it mean that they didn't look very hard for evidence it doesn't mean that they weren't tapping his phone is what he's right At least made me paranoid enough. Yeah key wasn't just not. He wasn't not sweating. This he was this made him very paranoid And with good reason but he took to going next door at the dakota building so he would let lenin use his phone in his apartment To make phone calls. And i guess you know assist with the calls at the same time a little bit and then the fbi said you know what could really help is if we could bust them currently for narcotics in the united states if we have an active charge drug charges against them in hoover senate out himself he said quote for info on a bureau Nyc pd narcotics. Division is aware of the subjects recent use of narcotics which is like every day and attempting to obtain enough info to arrest both subject and wife yoko investigation by this time. I'm thinking he was using heroin. I think that's what they were referencing as recent use. Oh really. i didn't a good starting to later. I thought it was the early seventies. I thought it happened during his lost weekend. But i may be wrong in that. I'm not gonna air toward you. Then 'cause i'm just surmising here. I'm not the one. That has a big old book of beatles history so i don't know they never they never actually busted him right. This is all just like they were planning on doing this but they never needed to. I don't think he was arrested in the united states. Was he out. I didn't know. I didn't get that impression but but it seemed like everything was kind of barreling toward that and even like you were saying the fbi was like we've let the mvp noted to to go do this so and if you take a step back like this is some heat some pressure that they're putting on john and yoko. They're basically saying we're going to split you guys up by deporting john because we know that yoko is not going to leave the country because of this custody battle. She can't afford to so she stay here. So if we threatened deportation a john lennon it might actually Keep him in line. And the fbi use the word neutralized that they were seeking to neutralize lennon And i guess some people who don't dig very deeply into the story or like they were going to assassinate john lennon and Jon wiener winer Has pointed out like this is not at all what they meant. They meant like basically making him ineffective like Taking him out of the game basically one way or another But not killing him just convincing him through putting this undo unfair undemocratic pressure on him to drop his activities with the new left. Yeah and they. And by the way. I think i think he probably was using heroin in the late sixties and had an on again off again but either way so that makes sense. Because i did see that guys like jerry rubin and I think rennie davis a couple of the chicago. Seven like they didn't even like hang out with them because he was doing too many drugs and i. I'm guessing that it wasn't like he was smoking so much. We can't even talk with them anymore. Like i think he was shooting dope and they weren't. Yeah well he never shot it. He always smoked dope. And that he and i think he and yoko. We're doing here when actually before the beatles broke up at the end okay When they were sort of a strange nut the with the beatles. Johnny oku but At any rate the like i said these investigations are going on. And they're going to his concerts and they're not even sending back information. That really means much even saying some of these informants like you know what they're they're not even really down with like the new left isn't even down with him because they think they're just quote self-aggrandizing aggrandizing rockstars. Yeah or there's little chance that all accomplish anything because they spend all their time doing drugs kind of sending the message like you really. Don't need to worry much about john lennon. He's not much of a threat. Kind of one of the funny things about this investigation was when lennon was one of the most famous people in the world. One of the most recognizable faces in the world on planet. Earth along with yoko ono and the fbi it passes around a sheet with linens picture on it so they can recognize him but it was the wrong photo. It was a different human. Being wasn't even john lennon. Yeah it was a street. Busker from the west village named david. Peel so funny. Who had a record that. I guess john lennon helped producer something. He looked vaguely like john lennon. But that was the that was the picture that the fbi passed under the guise of the wrong guy. They also fbi also put out an all points bulletin Searching for john lennon and said that he's at the saint regis at one fifty bank street Landscape supply surrey. I guess that's what they because the saint regis hotel is on central park and john lennon was indeed living on bank street at the time but he was at one. Oh five bank street so that all points bulletin was all kinds of wrong. But this is the level of like Capri that that that that be. I was conducting. You know trying to get john lennon. We'll take a break and we'll come back and talk a little bit about linens.
"lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Started to target. John lennon yes so to set the stage here Of kind of how this all worked out was John lennon had He was able to enter the whole thing. Kind of boils down to whether or not he would be allowed to live in the us. Or whether or not If he was eventually allowed to live the us if they could legally deport him so he was able to enter the us on a work visa. And seventy one and concurrent with this. Yoko ono had a custody battle going on. She had a daughter from a previous marriage in the early seventies and she wasn't gonna leave at all She was legally there. They did try and deport her. They didn't know that she had a green card already. Which was sort of the first foible in this thing but they they knew that a lot of leverage over linen because if they deported him he would be without his wife who was going to stay there so they had this leverage Love living in new york city. That's where he wanted to make. His permanent home has so much so that that was also leverage that they had to. Yeah absolutely and so nixon's up for reelection in seventy two He would go on to win. You know in a big way against mcgovern. But they were. They were a about to common organisation. They were an administration that was very paranoid They would obviously with watergate. They showed that they were willing to do anything to ensure their victory And that included being really worried about people like john lennon I don't think he was at the top of their list of things to worry about but he was on their list. Thanks to strom thurmond of all people. Yes so strong. Thurman the horrible segregationist senator from what south carolina right He he actually kicked this whole thing off. 'cause i guess i. He noticed that john lennon was. Was you know he was a left. Leaning rockstar activists. He seems to have been one of the first people that notice the activism that was developing among john lennon and yoko ono and to perceive it as a threat to the establishment because all those recently enfranchised eighteen nineteen and twenty year old voters. Who hadn't had the right to vote until the twenty sixth amendment had been passed I don't remember exactly when it was passed. But it was between sixty eight and seventy two because seventy two is the first election. Those younger kids were going to be able to vote in. And he apparently saw lennon is among a group of people who could speak to those kids in sway them to the left and potentially unseat richard nixon. Which would turn out. It's just a total laugh because nixon mcgovern in a landslide put at the time they didn't know this and richard. Nixon wasn't going to take any chances so his his the note from strom thurman was very well received in the nixon administration. Yeah i think What i want to know is who told strom thurman what i want to know too because it gets mystery. I doubt strom thurmond wants to hip to any of this. But somebody probably gotten his ear and he said He sent a note the specifically said they try and get him deported as a quote the strategic countermeasure right And that's really kind of what. Got the ball rolling Also mentioned this other guy john. I don't know if it's weiner winer in this case it's pronounced weiner slave. Oh it is now. do you remember. There was the thirty rock episode. Where there's like. Hr mediator and he's like this very soft rosy cheeked call mild mannered man and Liz lemon says well. Mr winer slav. And he goes a no. It's pronounced weiner slave. I miss that show. It's that was a really good moment. They had such a great fun with dumb jokes. Like that bob blah blah. Yeah right no. That was arrested development. Oh that's was arrested development. They kind of had the same dna. No yup for sure. So weiner slave Was a writer in or is a writer and historian still in. He is why we know so much of this. He was writing a lot about john lennon. Writing a lot about the beatles He decided to file freedom of information. Act request to get a lot of these documents uncovered over the years and eventually was successful. in a big dump in nineteen ninety-seven and then another smaller win in two thousand six and if not been for his tenacity I don't know if anyone else would have picked up this mantle too because in the end it's not the most interesting story in the world true. I'd say that in a whisper. It's not like some huge. Like oh my god. Revelations it's sort of one of those things it's like just another example of the small things that authoritarians do in this country under you know in in the back rooms and the whispered rooms of the white house. Well you know. I think that's really true. And that's a really good point. Is that like if you just look at it on his face like you know the fbi followed around. John lennon kept tabs on them. Like if you read the files. It's really pedestrian. Boring stuff You might miss like the the real story here in the real story here. Is that a sitting. President directed the fbi to get dirt that he could use against a political rival in activist rockstar to get him deported or to figure out what leverage she could use against him so that that that sitting president could get reelected. That's the real story here and that the f. b. i. Acted as as you know this Basically a gestapo-type agency on behalf of nixon. That's the the real story that i think kinda gets covered up by john lennon and yoko ono celebrity in the you know the fbi kinda wackily following up around. Yeah it is funny because if you look at some of the files and some of the reports like they would go to his concerts and undercover agents would go to the concerts and report things like you know he for his encore. He's saying give peace a chance and we all know about that song right. They would take notes on song lyrics and stuff like that so it's all just kind of silly but Yeah i definitely agree that it's it's just an example of the links that nixon would go to to be a dirty thief. Yes well chuck. I think we should demonstrate the links that will go to bring everyone a message. Break what do you think by just.
"lennon" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"Hey and welcome to the podcast. I'm josh clark. There's charles w chuck bryan out there. Jerry's here special guest jerry. This is stuff you should know the super subversive edition. Yeah which is i mean. It's a it's subversive but not coming from who you'd expect in this case. The subversive chuck are two of the crookedest worst. Americans denver take a breath of life in the united states. Yes nixon right. Yes herbert hoover and charles. Jay nixon. no not those to was j. Edgar hoover and richard. Nixon richard mille house. I think that's right. So you picked this one right. Yeah i think we got Help from our buddy grab stir article right. this is the grab stor so Why did you choose this chuck. I'm just a beatles nut. I'm reading a massive beatles book. And just i'm always thinking about the beat also. This is getting a new a ton about. Yeah now i now. I know more. Were you thinking about the beatles. Ri- now they could write a song like they could like. They're really good at writing songs. You mean i think so. I know you're not a beatles guy but they're regarded as good song writers sure. I am willing to concede that. At least i'm a grown person. I'm a. I can concede when i'm wrong or when i've been bested. I think we differ on yoko ono though. So that'll be you know that's where the tables are turned. Okay her singing isn't that right. I appreciate it. I don't know like is a strong word. But i definitely appreciate it. There's some songs like. Have you ever heard. I love you. Earth sure. That's a pretty sweet song. I like her singing on that. But have you ever heard her Her cover of katy perry's fireworks. No i bet she did it at Maybe moammar the mad or something like that. And she just standing there wailing. She's not singing words or anything like that just wailing and it was her cover of katy. Perry's fire working. It's it's great to see. I'm sure if you look it up on youtube. But i appreciate a lot of her stuff. How about that. I appreciate her as a human and it's always fun to look back at it performances live performances with lennon when she would do a full like four or five songs in the row in the middle of madison square garden concert and you could kind of see his his backing band. Just kinda like. I can't believe she's really doing this right right. And she's actually pretty strongly implicated in this whole thing. We're talking about john lennon Being pursued in surveilled and basically harassed by the fbi in the nineteen seventy two actually nineteen one seventy two a belief For a very specific reason and it was at a time. When john lennon and yoko ono got married they got married. Like two to three years before and Were very famous. Couple grab star argues that they may have been like the first genuine celebrity activist couple. Who actually used their celebrity as a way to Help help influence or help. Causes that kind of thing And by the time. Nineteen seventy one. Seventy two rolled around. Richard mille house. Nixon was actually running for reelection again and he decided that he didn't like people like john lennon. Running around conceivably swaying the vote particularly among newly minted voters in the eighteen to twenty one year old block. Yes i mean he. And yoko had been contributors to causes Working class causes. It's sort of the notion that linen was always known as the working class hero but Of all the beatles he grew up more solidly middle class than any of the rest of them and not to say that that was a false persona but he definitely sort of Sort of jumped in sort of leaned into that is an old around would say As far as his persona. And i think a lot of people that don't dig deep can of think that john lennon grew up in with a very hard scrabble life there in liverpool which is not the case but As a result of that he championed the working man. He and yoko contributed to causes He became along with yoko Much pacifist activists. And if you're a pacifist activist in the early seventies. You're not going to be a big fan of richard nixon and he's not gonna be a big fan of you because he was He was not shy about war. Not really wasn't he'd even campaigned I think in sixty eight on ending the vietnam war and then actually went the exact opposite direction with that There's a lot fewer pacifist. There is a lot to be upset about in the sixties and early seventies. Because of vietnam alone you know yet for sure One of the ways. I think that got the most press that when people think about john yuccas activism is. The bed ends that they had That is d dash. I n s and that is if you don't know what those are that's when you lay around bed and the invite the press to come to your room and talk to you. Lay around in bed while you're laying around in bed look ridiculous to a lot of people especially people on the right but John lennon's kind of point and he was very tongue in cheek. Kind of had a great sense of humor. But i think it all sort of stemmed from that which is like. Hey are you gonna do stay in bed and not go and start wars in. This is a pretty ridiculous way to drive that point home. Yeah yeah like rather than having to go out and oppose violence. You could oppose violence just by laying around bed and doing nothing lending your hair grow. I think what they were saying. Sure which is pretty awesome and the thing is is. It's john lennon. And you know yoko ono. And they're sitting around in bed with the press in their hotel room in like that in of itself is getting press and then if you say well what is always about and you read a little further into the article. I don't know maybe it kind of gets you and just the right way and all of a sudden you start thinking that way to and to the people who were you know running the whole a military industrial complex that i mean. That's a threat Even if it's just a threat of the of saying like just don't you don't even have to oppose for just anything that opposes warren and of itself and that was kind of the way things were at the time like there was a lot of a lot of people in power who are really opposed to that kind of thinking who were opposed to people were opposed to vietnam war in general or violence of any kind There is a big opposition to that and the people who are running the show in the united states were chief among those people like we said nixon as president running for reelection then j. edgar hoover who was not shy at all about doing whatever he needed to quite descent like he would generate dossiers on elected officials Especially ones who were more Liberal to basically keep them in line by threatening them with blackmailer even the threat of blackmail. You know There were plenty of hippies who got their heads. Cracked in there were people who were surveilled. we did an episode on the black panthers. If you remember we talked about Co intel pro the whole program to basically undermine and smear the black panthers in the public's mind like the jaeger hoover was a vicious terrible human being And he ran the fbi for decades and was still running the fbi..
"lennon" Discussed on True Crime Garage
"Right and that mark chapman had managed to buy a ticket to sit next to all three of them. so picture. four seats here. David bowie says that night. The night after john lennon was killed. There were three empty seats in the front row next to me and he believes that it was going to be john lennon yoko ono in mark david chapman who were to occupy those seats that might have gave chapman the opportunity to kill all three of these people. Now i it has been stated in a certain places that the chapman chose lennon other over his other targets at of convenience the he was easier to get to possibly and that may be the truth. But most of what i could find an. It's my own personal belief. I think john lennon was at the top of his list. While first of all we know for a fact that he had a little bit of obsession with them when he was younger. That's why he learned how to play guitar. We have evidence of him singing a beatles songs. We have evidence that he had the beatles haircut for a while. We have his wife saying that he talked about killing john lennon. We have him signing out from work as john lennon We also have friends of his or acquaintances of his sane. You know every now and then he would talk bad about people. He talked bad about john. Lennon condom a phony saying that he could. He could do more that. He's yo so rich but he could give to these And he's not doing enough and he was verbally angry. Many years after the fact about lennon's popular than jesus comments from back in nineteen sixty six brian. He had said time and time again to several people. Can you believe that that man actually said that right. What gives him the right that he that he believes. he's bigger or more popular than jesus. Yeah and i think you know the big y y all this stuff happened i. I think there's multiple reasons. And i think mark had many reasons in his head and i think like you said access but again there's no proof that he would murdered anybody else. I mean he killed. John and he had just the same amount of opportunity to kill yoko he wanted to and he and he chose not to correct and he chose not to flee the area he totally could have got away. I mean new york He's not from there right. Nobody would have a clue who who this guy was. You shoot john lennon and you take off down the street and if you can get away because you're on foot if nobody stops you or people are afraid to stop you. Could you have a gun. He got away and flew back to hawaii before they even knew who who it was. Well we talked earlier about mark chapman looking for signs looking for something to stop him. He said that on the second trip back to new york city that he believed he couldn't kill lennon on his own. He didn't have the strength to do it. So he says that he invoked the spirit of the devil and he did what he believed. Were devil worshipping ceremonies by himself trying to ask the devil to help him kill john lennon and looking for signs. He says when he finally met. Lenin lenin gives him the autograph. He's waiting around. During that day on the eighth he met to other people and had conversations with them. One of them was a man by the name of paul garesh. Paul garage was somebody who frequently would stand outside of the dakota hoping to snap a photo of john lennon. He even had his picture taken with john lennon in november. And he is. They're talking with chapman chapman. He was standing next to chapman. When chapman got the autograph on the cover of the double fantasy album he was the guy that snapped the photo of lennon. Signing the autograph where you can see chapman over linens left shoulder. Chapman said later that he told this man that he met paul garesh. Hey he's got gotta come back sometime now. mind you. After the autograph lennon takes off in his his limo. And he says he's got to come back sometime. You should wait around and get your album. Autographed right they waited around for a little bit of time and at some point. Paul says you know. I waited long enough. I'm going to. I'm just gonna head home. i'll get it another day. Let's keep that in mind and then take it a step. Further chapman said that he met a woman outside of the dakota that day and he had asked her out on a date. Why i actually think that she. They're just like we said mark. David chapman were was outside the dakota multiple days. I think they actually met the day before. And then he solar gin the day of and they started kind of talking about like all. We should go. Grab something to eat or somethin'. Yeah he says that he asked her out on a date to which she said no. She said she wasn't going to go for whatever. Reason chapman says that had either of those interactions with either of those individuals worked out differently. He probably wouldn't have killed. He would not have killed john lennon on. December eighth nineteen eighty. He said he was gonna never gonna stop. I don't he. Said if paul would have stuck around to get the autograph if paul would have been there when came back he wouldn't have shot him he also said if he would have gone out on the date he would have left before lennon would have returned and he would not have had the opportunity to shoot him on the eighth. But you're exactly right. He said those two individuals should not feel bad because then just killed john the next day now or some other time like you said he was in new york for a period than he left new york and then he just kept making these trips in. Who's gonna eventually find him somewhere. And if it wasn't john. I believe he would kill somebody else on that list. Like you said he would have got to new york and somebody said all you know a you know. John's back in england you know. John lennon's back in england for a couple of months he might went just to the next person on the list. I think he had this like determination. He had this. This like you said would create fake characters that he felt like if he did this that he was accomplishing something. Well of course. John lennon's one of the most famous people in the world. If he kills that person he will obtain a certain level of that person's fame right. at least that's what he believed in. Unfortunately to this day forty years later we all know his name because of his actions. But it's so weird to me because the whole idea's like oh well. John lennon's phony and one could make that argument right alongside mark. David chapman yes. Here's this guy that talked about peace and love and all this stuff but was abusive towards his first wife may be abusive towards his.
Election misinformation is still spreading
"Lies and unfounded allegations about the us election. Continue to circulate and though we talk about facebook and twitter a lot critic say youtube hasn't been doing nearly enough to prevent the sharing of videos making false or misleading claims. Seventy one percent of americans say they use the website according to pew research and over a quarter of. Us adults get news from it. All this is a topic for quality assurance where we take a second. Look at a big tech story rebecca. Hi awhile is a reporter for boxes open sourced project you to stance with some of the videos that just proclaimed trump one is that you know the election already happened. It's not technically interfering in the democratic process anymore. But of course other people would disagree with that characterization and say it's promoting a lot of doubt in the electoral integrity. So a lot of average people would probably call election misinformation certainly not being removed from youtube. There's a lot of frustration that this platform has played a really large role in just sewing. Dowd and creating confusion another concern. Is that even though you to. Maybe making it harder for people to find that content that doesn't stop people from sharing direct links on other platforms. And that's one way. This content sort of slips through the cracks. That's exactly right in one sense. Youtube is saying we are ticking borderline videos and taking them away from our search results but none of these platforms existent vacuum and they really aren't coordinated in the most optimized way to make sure that it's not jumping from one place to another one of youtube tubes other strategies has been to de monetize video so not allowing ads on misinformation. How effective has that been a lot of the videos. That i saw were not from channels. That are on youtube to make a lot of money. They're just random videos that sort of allege voter fraud in some capacity and they amass views so that strategy might work for a channel that really needs youtube to survive. But for someone who's just trying to add to the confusion. It's not clear like that move would really be particularly helpful. It seems like youtube has escaped a lot of the pressure that facebook and twitter have been under and they have responded by slapping labels on content or removing it. Why do you think Youtube has gotten a pass. Facebook was the tax story in the aftermath of the two thousand sixteen election. And so much of what we discussed regarding tack and politics has centered around facebook. It's given researchers and journalists that data tool that makes it easier to get a peek into what's getting attention on its own platform and i don't think youtube is really been pressured to do the same. Which means that you can't look at it and brees attention about things that are sort of going viral in the same way and there is maybe another test coming for these social media platforms with the possibility of corona virus vaccine and misinformation related to that. Do you expect anything different when it comes to preventing vaccine misinformation. So i think something. That's really interesting. As youtube said it will ban covid nineteen vaccine misinformation. So it's actually said you can post something. That's going to contradict the world health organization or local health authorities. About what the nature of a covid. Nineteen vaccine lennon. If one does arrive obviously there's a lot of attention on that now because of the announcement from pfizer but you know beyond that rule. There are other signs that youtube is going to take a similar approach in to the election into other topics that get a lot of attention like this so you know pushing authoritative content trying to rely on officials to sort of divert people to what they're saying and pushing fact checks and things like that rebecca. Hi awhile is a reporter for vox. Youtube says the most popular videos about the election and its search results are from quote authoritative news organizations though it won't say paul qualifies as authoritative

John Lennon’s Killer Mark Chapman Says he Sought 'Self-Glory'
"Killer Mark David Chapman says he deserved the death penalty. Chapman made the remark last month at a parole board hearing. He also called the killing despicable and creepy, adding that he often thinks about the pain he inflicted on Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono. Chapman has been denied parole 11 times. His next chance isn't about two years. Ah,
"lennon" Discussed on Data Skeptic
"We actually took his song, which he ended up writing in the style of the Beatles, and we ended up applying our model to it to see whether it sounded more like John or Paul and it turned out that it sounded incredibly much more like Paul McCartney. John Lennon. See could use the model that way to say like. If you have a bunch of songs than you think you write songs that sound like the Beatles. You're not sure whether it's McCartney like our Lennon Lake you can basically apply our model to it, and then it'll tell you which it is. Of course you'd still have to go through the manual effort of seeking within each song. Song whether you're song has a flat second in a whether you have a pair of notes, the six that occurs yet to do good manual work to get to that point. Though maybe there's a python library out there that can help me along the way perhaps thing. Yes, there are APPs out there that do the audio deconstruction, so there are things that probably could help, so why not? You know the song that really led to all of this is the son in my life, which is of disputed authorship, and that's what kind of led us down this path, really long first place. Yeah, I, actually myself that controversy to from the paper but I didn't know historically I don't know if we even call controversy, but what is the situation with in life? It is actually kind of a controversy, so the song and my life is songs recorded leftover, nineteen, sixty, five or saul in the. The year twenty eleven rolling stone designated it as the twenty third best written song of all time. What is known about the Saugus? Said John Lennon wrote the lyrics. There's a controversy of who wrote the music. Casse based on interviews John, Lennon claim that he wrote boost to the music exclusively diverse, and then he got a little bit of help from Paul McCartney in the bridge section, so that was Lennon's recollection and Carney's recollection was that John Lennon had written the lyrics, and then wasn't quite sure. Sure about writing the music and so Paul McCartney basically said to John Lennon. Let me just have ten minutes with this. And I'll come up with some music. And he even remembered civically that he purposely wrote the music to sound like smokey Robinson and the miracles, so they are very conflicting recollections, and so that was part of the inspiration of this particular project to be to answer the question about that song, specifically, because at least a Beatles fans. There is some controversy about you know who wrote. wrote the song it turned out when our models said almost exactly consistent with John Lennon's recollection, which is to say that our model gives something like an eighty percent probability that Lennon wrote the verse, and then it's very uncertain. It's like close to maybe sixty to fifty percent probability that Lennon wrote to bridge section, but with quite a bit of uncertainty about it, and that seems to square much more with linens. Recounting that the Ridge is more collaborative, so it's kind of Nice to see that the. That correspond to that particular song match a particular recounting that was given by Lenin. Interesting well that I don't know of. Paul's going to respond to the worker not but maybe that part would offended. Have you heard from his organization at all? He had some media outlets that took interest in this work did try to contact them, and apparently they're not interested in responding, so we got to the front door and knocked on it and an answer, but I will say that one of the reasons that might explain why is not answering. Is that some of the articles in the popular press that were written about this? Especially, when the explained that are modeled even eighty percent probability prediction to lend writing in my life. Had headlines like data. Cheyenne shows that Paul. McCartney can't remember or the Paul. McCartney lies just like really offensive things, which give him pretty good reason not to respond to us. Yeah, that's unfortunate. The subtleties of the statistics often don't make it to the headlines for some reason well, this has been great I wanted to just wind up by asking. You know where you're headed next on this line of research or we have talked a little about growing the corpus, but in general. What's the future look like for you? Well? The musical as I mentioned, there are a bunch of different projects that are gonNA come. Come out as some of the work that I do a lot. In the area of Games and sports and rating systems and I have some research contracts with some organizations basically do better modeling of strategy within Games and being able to model career trajectories of athletes, and that's something that site near future for me, but as with North Statisticians, we always keep our eyes and ears open and look for interesting projects and see what comes up in latch onto ones that are interesting. Well, thanks again for taking the time to come on and share your work, my pleasure. Thanks for having me on your show..
"lennon" Discussed on Data Skeptic
"Although there's one criticism I guess it could be that out of box, it doesn't necessarily deal well with two features that are correlated so like if this end this means Paul, but this not something else we explored that. Yes, so there are ways to incorporate interactions of all of these different features, and that's something that we did as part of the model city process. The problem that we were running into is that our training sample consisted of total of seventy. Seventy songs, which is really not very many album is that if you start incorporating interactions which intrude, we fi were very relevant. The problem is that once you start going through this automated process of identifying interaction terms that exactly address the issue that you're describing you very quickly. Start over fitting the data so in our view if we ended up having a much larger corpus of songs to work with which we're hoping, eventually, we'll be able to do what we start spreading out this kind of approach to when the Beatles get back together yeah right. Maybe expanding more in the direction of different groups of the sixties say you know then all of a sudden we have a lot of silence, and then the hope is that we would be able to find interactions, and so this issue of having these correlated features, all of a sudden becomes a relevant issue and incorporated into the model. Yeah, definitely I'm curious to hear how you think your techniques might generalize. Could it be that? Some of the features are a little bit hyperfocused to that era or might we think that like you said? The Sixty S has a lot of common nuance. Nuance to it? What do you anticipate as you broaden your corpus? I mean. Some of the particular results that we have along with all the coefficients for the logistic regression. We've you as being very specific to this Lennon McCartney problems I. Think if we were to apply this approach, distinguish authorship in other settings. Probably what we would end up doing something more. The realm of -scriminate kinds of analyses where each author would have essentially its own signature represented by a set of coefficients so essentially. What would happen is if you apply this to hundreds of different groups, each group would have. have its own like vector of Coefficients, and then if you want expanded further, you could even go in the direction of saying that those coefficients might even be evolving over time their waste actually include what's called us to casting process basically time series on the coefficients themselves that basically say that in a given year maybe group has what particular numerical fingerprint represented by this kind of approach, but then maybe the following year it'll be a slightly different set of numerical values that won't be too different from the ones from the prior year, but at least there's some statistical model that allows. Allows them to evolve over tie, and so that's another aspect that we want to incorporate, but we really can until we actually have a lot of data. That's another aspect. Another aspect that eventually we WANNA to be applying this to again. Using this kind of technology of discriminating type analysis is what we have. These numerical fingerprints for groups that we could start talking about like influence networks. It's commonly understood that John Lennon Nineteen, sixty five at that point was being very heavily influenced by Bob Dylan's music answer. There might be a way to say well if you start analyzing Bob Dylan's. Dylan's Corpus of music, using this kind of approach along with all these other physicians than we could see how far apart the musical fingerprint of Bob Dylan in sixty, five or sixty four baby and John Lennon and sixty five. How far apart they were, and if they're pretty close than we can actually say something like look, they're pretty similar BOB. Dylan was writing music a little before John Lennon at that point, so you can draw some inference about who similarities being at at least some level of influence. We know that John Lennon was listening to Bob. Dylan, so I think the. The paper would be well received in a statistical group or machine, learning, group, or musicologist, maybe even raucous as well. How do you feel about a lawyer? Getting hold of this and trying to make something of it I've heard that question before. So what are the questions that we hear quite a lot at reaction to this work is? Can we use our approach to save for example detect plagiarism in music. The issue here is that just about every form of plagiarism music involves taking sections of a piece of music, and then mostly lifting at inserting it into a new piece of. Of Music, essentially copying passages of music from one song to a new saw, our approach doesn't really get it that local level of music. All of the features that were picking out of songs tend to be more global about the saw whether or not the dominant court occurred in the saw, and so you're never really going to be able to say using our approach that since all the constituent features are these global measures, and you know maybe one song or one musician or another musician have very similar. Sorts of use of these differ features if they're not lining up temporarily it. It would be up pretty hard keys to make I think to say that there's plagiarism involved so I I'm not sure approach lends itself very to the legal realm plagiarisms at definitely a different problem. I guess I would say what if we spun it in a slightly different direction and I as a enormous Beatles fan yet. Someone of questionable morals wanted to purport that I discovered a secret Beatles song that was recorded in hidden away and I to put that fake out there on the Internet has use your tool to produce a fake like that the other thing about cannot do. Talking about all this limitation is that it's not a generative model which is to say that we can use our model, and then just produce a new beetle saw I will say that this work that I've done with Bach and these Corrales is a generative model which is to say that you just basically let the ball run, and you have a new pot. Corral our approach, not gonNA. GonNa be able to produce new songs. What is essentially going to do is it's going to produce a set of features that is a very barebones menu of the features that should appear a song if it is going to sound like the Beatles so in other words like all our bottle will do is if you tell me, the have a song and certain chords, court progressions are. Not In the song then all our model will do is it'll tell you what it thinks. The probability is that the song is a John, Lennon Song or Paul. McCartney saw, and that's pretty much all. It's going to be able to do sure so if I desire to write in the style of Paul submit iterative drafts and try and push my score up I. Imagine that's true. You could take any old song and apply our model to it, and it'll tell you the probability that it sounds like a pulp Arnie saw lord sounds like a John. Lennon Song in fact one of the things that we did as. Exercise is my colleague Jason Number of years ago, wrote a fun song that he and I performed at the launch of the Journal we are article appears as a financier size..
"lennon" Discussed on Data Skeptic
"Mark Glickman and I'm at Harvard University as a senior lecturer in statistics, statistics is a topic that the audience really loves hearing about before we get into the main topic. Can you give us a little bit of background on the areas of stats that you studied or maybe those that interest you the most? Yeah, well. What got me into statistics in the first place? Actually was my interest in the Game Chess I've always been interested in how chess players get rated when they play in tournaments in other. Other words when you go to a tournament, you get a numerical rating. Where if you have two players have ratings, you could actually determine the profitability that player defeats at other, and that was something that I was always interested in these chess rating systems, and I ended up getting really into statistics and the mathematical aspects of these kinds of systems and I developed a couple systems that are in use these days, especially in online gaming called the Licko system. So that's really got me into statistics in. In, the first place and I really have a passion for teaching, so that's a big part of my statistics life, and then much more recently got into the intersection between statistics and music, and this <hes> Beatles authorship attribution project is one of the bits of work also got involved with a student who is really the primary driver of this work on basically how to use statistically generates music that sounds like <unk> Corrales, and so we have a paper. That's GonNa, be coming very shortly in that area so. So, yes, a music's become a much bigger focus in my statistics like these days. Is there anything obviously interest could drive it but I'm curious if there's any computational component to it may be the availability of computers to run big simulations, and that sort of thing has that influenced the ability to ask interesting questions along these lines? Yeah, generally it helps I. mean I tend not to gravitate to problems which can only be solved by having the appropriate hardware to be able to crank through the data? Having access to good computing definitely makes a big difference I think we can take for granted that any listener must be aware of the Beatles and their influence on music. Regardless of what they like should they could a few, but tell us a little bit more background for those that don't know the discography. What were the types of problems you were looking to? To approach this whole project essentially started when I met my main collaborator for this project Jason Brown. When the two of US happened to be at this conference in Prince, Edward Island! We just happened to be talking. After I gave a talk some material. Actually that's related to rating systems for chess players, and we just happened to stumble on our mutual interest. Interest in music, and in the Beatles, and he was telling me that he had gained a little bit of infamy about fifteen years ago, where he used essentially a forty-eight analysis, decomposing the sounds from the starting court of a hard day's night to figure out the actual instrumentation of the cord, because that really been something that was in pretty serious dispute so. So he published a little article audit and got him some attention, and he was telling me since then one of the things that he was particularly interested in was being able to represent Sohn's particularly Beatles songs in particular format in his area of math, which is graph theories, essentially representing music in the form of essentially graphs or networks and he wanted to. Be Able to use it to be able to distinguish authorship of different Beatles songs like maybe there'd be stylistic differences that would be evident in these representations, anyone really making a lot of headway and whole problem of being able to sing wish authorship is something that's much more firmly in the wheelhouse of a statistician, so I told him it sounds like he probably something I would want to be heavily involved in and so we ended up starting this collaboration, and that was kind of started it all, so we tried lots of different sorts of things. Things to take the music and be able to figure out. How can you predict authorship from musical features, and that's essentially what led us down the path to the work that eventually got published so from my perspective, wearing my data scientist hat, I would say you have a fixed data set that is partially labeled. Does that feel like the right framing for you? The main question of interest really and just to take a step back is that there are a handful of songs by the Beatles and again there's nothing about this problem that has to. To be specific to be spent for our interests there handful songs by the Beatles that or of disputed authorship, and so the idea is that you start off with a data set where the labels which is to say the authorship of Lennon McCartney songs is known that's known because the Beatles Bayside interviews in various information that's been gathered over the years is of note authorship, so we have a data set where the labels are no, and then in addition to that we have for all of those songs. We have a whole bunch of features A. A whole bunch of information about various musical aspects of the songs and idea is to form a statistical model that uses those features to predict the labels, and then once you establish that relationship then you apply to the songs of disputed authorship to see the predictions going to be based on that relationship, so for non composers who might be listening? Perhaps they could be intimidated by this problem. Saying music is all about creativity and unpredictability in these sorts of things. Is this truly assault problem from that point of view well? Yes, solvable a loaded word. I mean we certainly made our best attempt by Best Ibiza? After making lots of attempts that were not terribly predictive, we finally stumbled on said features and a statistical approach that seems to do a pretty reasonable job. Making predictions, the simple answer I suppose is yes, it's possible at solvable in the sense that there is information that you can extract. That is predictive of other ships. I could be pretty. Pretty concrete about this one thing that we knew before going into this work, and this is something that has been well known by musicologists studying. Beatles, music, which is that Paul? McCartney songs in particular tend to have melodies that tend to move around a lot like Paul McCartney, had a musical vocal range, fairly wide and part of that tended to be reflected in his moving melody by contrast John Lennon. had a reasonable vocal range tended to write melodies that didn't move around very much like he used a lot of repeated notes, or the vocal movements would stay very close and pitch, and that's characteristic of a lot of John Lennon songs, and so we knew even going into the problem that you know. musicologists have identified differences in the way that each of these songwriters would write music, so we knew that there were features that could be quantified and picked up. Up and used as distinguish irs in these classification models.
"lennon" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
"Look like a witch would've ended. Tell you I probably would have had to tell you like. Hey Buddy you're so good at everything. You're laugh well let me ask you this. Do you know what a witches laugh sounds want? Somebody said that the laugh was fake which I was like. If it was fake then I would have picked like I guess a better sounding one if I Deciding with the laugh was which I don't even understand what that means but I think I would be interested again. 'cause it wasn't me that was attacked in a certain situation. I immediately go to what would be going on with somebody bad that would trigger them and and I'm genuinely curious. I think it's a fun. Like riddle like okay. What kind of insecurity would you have? Where People's let's say you have a fake laugh. Why would fake laugh bother you? Is it that you think people are fake laughing at you? Do you think you're not as funny as you WanNa be. Do you feel like you're not good at being encouraging people in conversations. And you just wish you could have a social lubricant of Gentle Gracious. Laugh like what what would be going on. That would be a big in the gym today. Oh my God. Let me just unpack a little bit? This Gal I was listening to at the gym. She was with her boyfriend and they were taking turns filming each other exercise and I was like Oh. I wonder if they have like an instagram workout account. Whatever and then she just went on this tirade about. Oh you know what I hate. These fucking people who are at the gym and they're lifting way too much weight and their their their. Their posture is terrible. Their form is horrendous. And it's like just do it right or don't do it. Needs other guys are at the gym for three hours. And they're doing his set like every twenty minutes and my head I'm like how could all of this anger you like? Who gives a flying fuck about how other people work out and I was like? Oh she must work out with low weight so that our form perfect and she's so pissed that it looks like other people are stronger but they're not stronger because their form sucks. I'm like is that it. What is going out with this person? Because you can't be that mad that other people you don't know or doing something that has no impact on you or society. I do. I mean I just think it's part of this general human fault that we all have. Which is that we feel like negativity breeds community or something which doesn't but in some cases. Sally I guess that's part of it when I saw on the comments. I think that's part of what irks me about. It is like these people in some ways are winning but I also have to remind myself. They're also not winning in life. If that is how they operate like I I definitely don't WanNA trade with them so I have to remember that. Well let me now own something to because this could be another explanation for her so. I realized that I would do this at work right. I would say like Oh. Are they here yet? Talking about another actor basically pointed out that they're laid all the time and I thought well. Why did I do that and I was like? Oh I did it to point out that I'm on time. I mean if you want to really get down to it so I think maybe that Gal was in a way pointing out that she has perfect form that she goes straight from exercise to exercise with no rest like it was just a reverse way to brag. Maybe yeah I think everyone wants to feel like an expert in some way you know like they have the keys. They have control. It's just maybe a way to get that yes now let me counteract and again this is should have been the first thing I said so before the gym we were in meeting and gale came up to me and said Oh my God. I'm at this meeting because of your podcast. Six months ago from listening to the PODCAST. I decided to come day and I was so happy. That's incredible but that is the whole point of this so the other stuff should be able to just get one roll off our back like little little ducks swimming in poop. Who are we fact checking today? Lenihan Lennon Parham me love. What a catch she is in her episodes. She talks about many guys who she encountered in her young life who she felt rejected by and honestly God those guys just missed out on this beautiful wonderful soul while they did but what I heard is a little bit what I hear in your story. Which is I? Don't know that these guys didn't want to plow her well. She said she asked three people to Prom and they all said well. Yeah that's rough remember. She also had this story about having the guy over to study and I think she just like it was her lack of confidence. I'm sure that guy would have loved to have pounded her. Yeah we're all. We're all kind of self sabotaging a little bit but it all makes us who we are all of it. You would probably suck at this job if you had been banging a ton. I probably have a much better laugh though that you never talk about poop never never okay. Oh we were talking about Matthew. Makaay his balls. Oh we were talking about how many kids he has an I said I think three and he does have three. Oh great so Lennon Lennon loved the show. Putting on the hits which was an American syndicated music variety competition show hosted and written by Alan Fawcett. The show featured amateur acts lip synching to popular songs. The show aired on weekends from nineteen. Eighty four to nineteen eighty-eight. I watched a couple of clips on YouTube. It's worth doing a little google on that. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's pretty seem like something. No one should be competing like doesn't it seem like everybody can lip sync. That's my knee jerk reaction. I wouldn't be so arrogant. It'd be like having a contest of people dribbling a basketball standing still. Okay Okay but some people do better than others at that but if you put them in a box where all. They can do nothing between the legs. You can't move your legs. It's just dribbling. I still think there's GonNa be some variety okay. Maybe we should pitch this the big dribble so she said you know she really wanted to be on eastbound and down but then she having maybe she couldn't but she said she thought it filmed in Wilmington. But what I saw on the Internet was that it was filmed in Myrtle beach South Carolina. Okay but maybe it was back and forth. We can't really trust the Internet completely. No no that. That is what it says I went. I went a day or two to spring break in Myrtle beach in. Did you enjoy it now? I don't think I felt cut out for that scene. I did have one perfect spring break which was in Cancun when I was in eleventh grade. I mean that that's one of the best weeks in my life but some of the other spring break experiences. I just didn't feel jacked enough and I didn't drink I. I did drink in Cancun but then I didn't drink in twelfth grade. 'cause I was already exhibiting some issues. Oh yeah speaking speaking of that so you know. I'm on this new medication and my doctor said it was okay to drink. I think I probably should have been more clear when I asked him he meant. It's not gonNA interfere with the medication which is not but I also had a conversation with a another neurologist. I brought up drinking again. And he said he would advise me to pretty much. Cut It out completely. Why the dehydration or something? It can be a factor in seizures one. He said it's excites the brain to it interrupts and the CROTCH. Well yeah it excites the whole bod really. I feel a full body tingle. And he said that it also which this is for sure disrupt sleep and sleep is a huge element of this and yours in particular the fact that you had both seizures while asleep sure exactly But apparently that's like a big trigger. Is the sleeping stuff? So how drunk were you the night the seizure in New York? That's what I was trying to think. I mean definitely not drunk at all but we word drinking throughout the day there. We go but not a lot like I had a Mimosa in the morning at breakfast esque go on first thing. Brush your teeth. I I had a massage. And then what if you're allergic to? Messiah kind of already. Of course have that thought like I wish I could go back in time to the first one. What if I had a massage the day before what would you? You'd rather quit massage than drinking right. Yeah both be really hard. I love massages. Bama Moses and God. I Love Mama's this is horrible. Anyway I started off. I had a most then. I had wine at lunch and then I had wine. Gan midday gray well between legend her and then I had a cocktail. But I didn't finish it at dinner while ny a wine and then a cocktail at dinner. Only a cocktail. And I didn't even finish it so I had five drinks four five ish drinks throughout the whole day. But were you not drinking water? Were you meeting? All of your thirst needs with alcohol. I mean if I know myself I'd say probably I doubt I was drinking enough water and we were moving around the city a bunch I was also probably exerting energy so I probably was dehydrate. That makes sense. Yeah yeah it was a new psy and yeah but he he said I could maybe have like the re ounces of wine and then maybe another glass of three ounces of wine but that's Kinda in bad news no amount of alcohol no. That's that's a sip so I'm kinda trying to grapple with that. A lot of things are feeling pretty out of control. I will say now. If it were me I would just be like well. I'm just still going to drink. Is that how you feeling or you really considering not drinking now? I'm really considering it. No it's not the end of the world of five to cut it out. It's okay you did. I'd hate to see you quit. Well paid to see someone with a great relationship with it. Not Do it well. I obviously don't have a great relationship because this news was a little bit earth shattering. Sure sure yeah anyway. That's all for Lennon. Sorry if I was a bit of a Downer in this I like it I like it. I like your honesty. Yeah the problem is people pretending that everything's perfect and then other people are hearing that and they're like I I don't feel that way. Am I broken? I would that would suck. I don't know I don't think being honest as ever backfired really long-term sharing. Yeah that's true. Yeah it's a good way to live. I immediately went to a pullout joke in my head but I couldn't frame it and time all right well on that. No this was so fun by..

"Being from Georgia. Yeah maybe cowboy boots. Can you get into that? I guess like I think I rebelled against it because it was so prevalent everywhere and I felt like it wasn't who I was and so I like actively did not listen to country music. I hated it. I was vocal about not liking it and not liking that sort of like redneck Called Reversion Hall. Yeah yeah but I mean all of my family's from Rural Alabama rural Georgia Lake. It's southern as you get. It's deep South and so when I went when I did teach for America after college and I lived in Lake in the deep deep South in Mississippi it was only country radio stations and I fell in love with country music. Did you assess that like okay? Here's the going thing in Georgia. Yeah big blond hair fat naturals. Ya All this stuff guests add. Yes I'm not going to be able to play that game so I'm going to pick another game do you remember what was motivating you to kind of reject? That did you think you weren't going to be included in that. I I mean I think I was trying to be that but like felt so weird anytime I would do any of that like try on Sexuality Fair Foreign and I good but I knew I was funny like maybe because my parents in my like growing up education there was not like a separation between adults and children like my mom was very like I want you to feel like you're on equal playing level and in the south in the eighties. That wasn't necessarily like your kids are safe. Ma'am Yeah Yeah so like. If I were to have like an adult conversation with an adult as a seven-year-old that would make the adult very uncomfortable right right. Yeah Yeah Yeah but I had that sort of like weird confidence in my weirdness like very early on right and it made everyone uncomfortable. I just felt like I hadn't found my people like felt like I needed to go. Seek those Pale swear. Yeah Yeah and the only thing. I could see that it was was theater because that's where I kind of felt like I fit in and my high school even though it wasn't exactly and then senior year we did Comedy Sports Competition and we won my school one. Oh Wow and I had like the blow of the whole time. Yeah big block outline. Yeah it was one of these Improv Games. Where you like say freeze and then you add on and so you have to like make whatever physicality the people who are already in the scene doing makes sense with your initiation and I was the very last person so it was like a lot of freeze and then it would be three people freezing and it'd be four people and then I was the eighth person and I said freeze and everybody was like Washington us and I think I came out and leaped in started singing. I'm on a and it was like bananas. Saw What a moment. That's kind of like Monica State Championship. You yeah couple so yeah you went to college and you majored in theater has to be wrong on wikipedia. You don't have a B. S. Yeah I do why so? Our school had like bs would be like the performance major. Like if you did scenic design or something very specific but I was accepted into the program as what's called a generalist and that was someone who could kind of do all of those things and had good in high school. That was all trae. Yeah what school is this University of Evansville Southern Indiana? Oh and so. They had like a very good liberal arts theater program and it was like eat sleep and breathe theater but I did costume design. I did directing I did acting I. You know I was really pushing the acting like accepted me as a way to see. This actually spent a good overall education. I felt like and I think that's why I gotTA BE. But that also enabled me to do things like minor infraction. Yes so when you got out of college you went and taught French. Yeah Yeah two years. I auditioned for like a bunch of Grad schools for theater like I wanted to get a masters in theater at Yale rap or something right but they didn't care for that idea as much so you've got your more of a generalist. Yeah and I hadn't honed in on the comedy piece you know right. I had always thought about doing something like a Peace Corps but that thought real scary to me and Americorps and teach for America was like a new program. At that time it had only been around a couple of years and I had been teaching on and off in different various ways all my life and I thought maybe this'll give me a couple years of growing up that I like I would need fortitude before I hit the main street to New York and try to sell my wares and then so after two years of teaching. Which was that any sting situations studio? It was interesting. 'cause language of love. I was at the time maybe three years older than some of them. Which is Tony? Two years old and I've got seniors. Who are old for seniors like nineteen year old young men who are like on the football team Gmail Body? There was a gentleman named theon Drik Scott to do more they also call them not Iraq. He was a delight but also a challenge in the classroom. And so if I did wear like. They noticed everything. So I was very generic. I'd tried to not like instigate anything again. You're three years older than them. I know they were like MS P. How old are you? How old are you and I was like? I'm not going to tell you that. But I'm eighty three. They would be like. Oh she's thirty eight flip the script you know. Now it'd be like that's great. Let them believe what they WANNA believe. I'm not available to them. Passing Right Ninety ROCK BLURRED THE LINE. Do some like suck in his teeth than like. Oh boy but mostly at slaked steep no. I kicked him out one time. 'cause a student was giving a presentation and he was like. Oh Lincoln at looking her up and down. I was like no no no hon out. You're out and then he he said that's Audie rock do yeah and then he goes outside and I was teaching my. I had half of a double wide trailer t all Western High School in Greenville Mississippi. And so he goes out the door and like five minutes later. I just see the top half of him jumping up above the window and he's like be prejudiced against men frigid. It's like not out of it was like when I got to New York after Teaching High School for two years. I was like bringing it fucking on is there is nothing harder in the who were then teaching and teaching high school and you were living in rural Mississippi by yourself. When moved there I had a roommate other people other teachers so we got like a little tiny house which was like the nicest place I've ever live. It was like the cost of living. There is nothing I did start dating while I was there one of the other teachers. No well I met him doing community. Theatre. Oh yeah yeah so like after the first semester. When I was like drowning and depression I was like I gotta do something. That's for me because I can't just like chain smoke on my patio to get over this shit because it was hard it was a very. How do the Teachers Party hard like in this house? You guys get home from that day of school and my roommate was not not of that. Ilk worker who like stuffed peppers or whatever. Sure but I yeah I mean we would go out. There was like a place called the HAL joy. Chinese restaurants had a lounge. Attach this. Yeah Yeah Yeah and there was curiosity every Friday and Saturday nights. You could find me. They're very frequently. It's this is a weird mix of like it sounds present. Sounds like heaven to me until I found that outlet and then I was doing like the community theater productions of Narnia. Xm smoke on the mountain in your lover. Yeah Yeah you had some good strong drinks Chinese restaurant. I had like my go-to Karaoke songs. Ernie fancy by REBA mcentire. I was doing a Lotta Pat. Ben Atar Oh wait. Was this boyfriend your first real boyfriend. I know in College College. Yeah my first. Love was in college. Where did you go onto? He's Working Actor yes very successful very successful. He works I works. Have you ever bumped into him? Yes and audition added Cipolla in Union Square. Okay well that's a little different imagining you get to work and use find your scene. Partner's your own in and alchemy. Split or heartbreaking split broke up and then got back together and but he was with. My friend was on. It was nasty. I hope he's watching blesses. Medicine is also upset. I'm sure he's upset. When I'm watching buses there's so many people are pissed when they watch buses so really quick. The big choice to move to New York. Was there a moment? Where you're like. I'm fucking doing this. Laverne and Shirley style I knew it was gonna be either New Yorker La. For a long time I got a U. Haul my mom and I actually drove the U. Haul up the coast and like drove across like the Verizon Bridge. It was so nerve wracking. Was She scared for you? And she was terrified but she never let on. Oh that's nice. That's one thing that I hope to be able to do because I think about what it must have felt like for her to let me go to Teredo country over to the Almighty God thinking about letting my children go do something like that. I mean I'm so like before. She goes out the door to an ice skating lesson. I'm like okay let's talk about. Let's cover some basis. If this happens let's do you know and there was just none of that fear. I didn't feel that fear from them. There was something in me. That was just like let's do this. So how? How long in total was that stretch? I was in New York from two thousand a two thousand ten but in two thousand eight. I started coming to La. Okay and then. I got a job here so I would be here for like three weeks and then go back to Brooklyn for a week. And when did you meet her like a month? After I moved there. No Way Yeah doing what teaching. So I got a job as an advisor to a group of incoming teachers for the New York equivalent of the teach for America Program. Okay and it was a bunch of Tefa alumni that were running it and so they knew me and they knew that I knew what I was doing and so they hired me and I would like for a month in the summer in July and August. We would go to. Grad school classes and I would do like two hours of lesson planning and grade books and classroom management stuff and we would do role playing and practice lessons and all this stuff and he was one of the twenty five teachers. Most of them were like in their twenties and thirties and they relate leaving whatever job they had to go teach public school or in his case he'd been teaching private middle school and now he was going to be teaching public school..

Did you go hang there ever like in your teen years as a destination to have some cocktails and make out and stuff. I wasn't part of that group crew as it were it would be. It would be more like we're like making best friends with the dude at dairy queen or yeah I mean I was at a youth group I was going to the United Methodist Youth Fellowship. Okay like Christian Youth Thing Multiple Times a week. Okay and so. I had a totally separate friend group from my church to my school that you would meet at the. Yeah I guess we did go to Goodall Place. Mall thousand my mom. Oh that's your stranger things mall. Oh it didn't know. Yeah yeah the ice cream shop in the ice cream shop. And the yeah spoiler alert creature destroys. Yeah I didn't hold the hell. Did you not recognize? The ball has changed yes and when? I was a testing familiar to me look similar to when I was growing dated a bit. Yeah they made it like an eighties mall. Yeah but some of the pillars like. Oh Yeah I remember that center. Yeah I get a feeling just from watching that stranger thing. Yeah get a a warmth. When I see a mall like that I spent so much time at the mall so fun. Walking around like most people in contempt casuals. Oh definitely was boy crazy. But it wasn't reciprocated. Okay no patty cake. No no so I was. There was a lot alike leering and like but like every time dances would happen. I would be like Scott. Will you go to homecoming with me? And there he would be like no. I got three knows from three different guys own for my senior prom. No yes nine. All watch less in fucking cut themselves. Yeah it's you know it's not surprising but it's not surprising. Surprise surprise -able really went to seventh grade right there. No I look like I was twelve until I was twenty four and then I look like I was eighteen. Yeah you know Look Eighteen. Thank you yeah congrats. What Lane were you in? Were you funny in like junior high and high school? I was always a real weirdo. Okay I always like freak flag fly. I was like Halloween. Was my time to shine. Oh really do you like seventh grade. I made my own. I was inspired by putting on the hits. Do you remember that show was a lip sync competition show. Oh my God Google it is. It was at a plan putting on the Ritz. Probably sounds like yeah. That show has stuck with me in so many ways but people would do a lip sync performance like one guy did endless love and painted half of his body Diana his body Lionel Richie and we would just turn to sing each part of so. There was a costume on putting on the hits that I was inspired by and so in seventh grade I came as Carmen. Miranda you know. They'll like Chiquita Bananas. We know all about her who she can Charles. Riding on the back of a man so I built a cardboard box right with the head and torso of a man and then my legs were his legs. And then I built fake Chiquita. Banana lady legs that hang hung over his shoulders. Oh my own sounds over it like did your parents at all look at it and go like. Oh my God sweetie. It's so great in their mind. Like what the fuck is this? What is this? They let me go for it they did. They leaned into the the weirdness of it I was like. I know that this is unusual. Yeah was this costume ahead. I got a photo yearbook but I don't. I don't think anybody else was as proud of me as Iowa. Pass a group of people that were in the middle of talking about what a great outfit.
