The Left Always Looks After One Another...
"The left they always look after one another. For Lisa Monaco, venita Gupta Christian Clark Kenneth polite Matthew graves, they've bought into this machine mentality. This idea of building a machine is very difficult for conservatives. We have too much of a flair for liberty and freedom to say, oh, yeah, you know, I'm gonna basically sacrifice my own individual autonomy and my decision making to be part of a mindless Borg machine that tries to remove and eliminate my political opponents. That's a very difficult thing for conservative temperamentally and philosophically to engage and believe in. We don't really like tyranny very much. Why would we want to be part of it?
Do Democrats Think We're Stupid?
"Here's my question. And it's like the eternal question that I deal with whenever I guess I was here on the Hugh Hewitt radio program. Are they stupid or do they think we are stupid? Let's see what Dana milbank thinks because he's right up that alley. Cut 15. Look, this has been a horrific week in the sense of the threat to the rule of law. I mean, Republicans with their violent talk, actual violence have lit a bonfire in a threat of the rule of law. Earlier, governor Hogan was saying he thinks this week was a win for Donald Trump. I think it's exactly the opposite. We can talk about them motivating Donald Trump's base. Guess what? They were already motivated. But what's happening now is they are putting Donald Trump on the ballot. Because of the way the Republicans have all grasped around him the way they're going to knock out 9 of ten of the House Republicans who voted for impeachment because of the dogs. And I can't listen to this idiot anymore. First of all, it is a tragedy that we've knocked out 9 of ten Republicans who vote for impeachment. We need to make a ten of ten.
Congresswoman Titus Spins Passage of Inflation Bill
"I think you got a lot more to hide. I'm just saying. And I don't think that Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell, when we take back the House and the Senate, as we will, and we're going to be talking about that today. Because right now, we're in that designated period where Biden's winning, right? Because inflation's coming down. According to, well, cut number 11 Dina Titus of Nevada. Cut number 11. A lot of the economists are saying that inflation is already coming down. Gas prices are coming down. So I believe that you will be able to feel it. Unemployment is very low now. People are back to work, so that's not the definition of a recession. And so people will feel that every day. And I'm optimistic about it. It's here in Nevada when you have the monsoon season. People know that they need help when it comes to climate change.
Journalist Julie Kelly on the Endemic Corruption in the FBI
"I'm back with Julie Kelly. Julia, I was asking you about the fact that the Democrats can't stop themselves, it seems they tried to impeachment, they tried Russia collusion, and it looks like this is they're on a quest in search of a crime. They have their target, they have their suspect, they have their person they want to indict and it's just a matter of what do we get this guy on. And interestingly, it seems that so much so many of the pundits and the media and so on are all sort of brazen disregard of law. They really are. So going back to what you said at the end of our first segment, Debbie is right. I'm sure she'll be happy to hear that. But of course, she's seen how this plays out in places like Venezuela. But also, we see that this DoJ is producing all of these imaginary charges. I mean, you have this DoJ, Matthew gray is the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, who is charged about 20 Americans with seditious conspiracy. This is such a rare charge. There's not even sentencing guidance for it. No American has ever been convicted of it. Yet Matthew graves managed to go to a grand jury in Washington D.C. city that voted 93% for Joe Biden convinced them that nonviolent people like the oath keepers who walked into the building and opened door carried no weapons, assaulted no one. Didn't even vandalize property, that they somehow are guilty of seditious conspiracy. So this Justice Department doesn't have to convince anyone except a grand jury in Washington D.C. of these imaginary crimes. I mean, you have people going to jail for years on a charge of obstruction of an official proceeding, which I think is one of the counts that they are going to try to charge Trump with.
The Democrats' Inflation Reduction Act Isn't Reducing Anything
"What is really sort of floating the democratic vote here is not the polling data. It is the notion instead that somehow spending more money is going to fix this. So they are all hot and bothered. Very, very hot on the idea that this quote unquote inflation reduction act is going to fix all of their problems. So what exactly happened here? There's a giant Bill. We are talking about hundreds of billions of dollars in spending. Joe Manchin, who had been concerned about both deficits and inflation. He said that he was not going to sign on to build back better. But now he's signing on to this. So why exactly is he signing on to this inflation reduction act? And what exactly is the inflation reduction act in the first place? Well, first of all, it's another one of these misnamed acts. So Democrats come up with names for the acts that really have nothing to do with the content of the act. Build back better, had nothing to do with the actual infrastructure. Inflation reduction has nothing to do with actual inflation reduction. In fact, according to heritage and Matthew Dickerson, who's the director of the federal budget at the heritage foundation, he says after more than a year of expressing his concerns about the inflation of impact, the impact of inflation. Senator Manchin has signed off on a massive tax and spending bill that would only push prices for working families even higher. Biden's $1.9 trillion American rescue plan, a stimulus spending bill in March 2021 was the match that lit the inflationary fire. Well, now they're back for more. The so called inflation reduction act of 2022 only would add to the inflationary pain families are already feeling thanks to hundreds of billions in new government spending and job destroying tax hikes. The legislation's proponents argue that over the next year the bill is higher taxes would offset new spending. And it's true that recent massive federal deficits financed by the Federal Reserve and driven by excessive government spending have resulted in crippling inflation, but the inflation reduction act doubles down on the same bad fiscal policy that has caused inflation in the first place.
Allison Gill on the DOJ, Trump, and Seditious Conspiracy
"Adam Schiff has been as has Liz Cheney been openly. I don't know what the what's the word you'd use impatient, pressuring the Justice Department. I think that's fine though, right? It's fine for them to be outspoken about that. Yeah, I mean, as long as we're not openly bashing or spreading disinformation about the Justice Department, you know, in some large accounts going so far as to say they're in Trump's pocket or, you know, things like that. But yeah, I mean, we do need this. We need it quickly. It's just that this is the biggest investigation in the history of the Justice Department. And that was some language that changed between the last two Merrick Garland statements because he said one of the biggest now he's saying it's the biggest. And I think they have some really great prosecutors. Now Garland running this whole show. It's Matthew graves and his team. And Matthew graves was able to come in after Mike Sherwin, a Trump appointee nearly killed the seditious conspiracy case by talking about it openly, and he was going to be sanctioned, but was resigned before that happened. And he didn't want to execute search warrants on Stewart roads. He was doing his best to sabotage that case. And four Matthew graves to come in and be able to button it up. And to get Merrick Garland to sign off on seditious conspiracy charges, which is like the granddaddy of all charges next to treason. I think kind of shows that they're in it to win it, so to speak. And that they have the gravitas, the intestinal fortitude to charge something like that because I kept telling everyone chill on the seditious conspiracy stuff. It's going to be obstructing an official proceeding probably. But then they came out, swinging. And so I'm excited about that, but it is taking a long time, and I understand the frustration, particularly in the face of what we've had the last 5 years and what barred into the Mueller report. We didn't even get an impeachment out of that because of the spin and the controversy and I guess he didn't have enough pizzazz when he was on TV.

Jan. 6: Trump spurned aides' pleas to call off Capitol mob
"The house January 6 panel has ended its summer of hearings detailing Donald Trump's failures to concede his election loss and to call off capitol rioters Panel member Elaine luria says when Trump returned to the Oval Office after whipping up backers at a rally he was quickly told about the riot Within 15 minutes Yet for 187 minutes luria and Adam kinzinger said the president simply watched the violence on TV He chose not to act Instead White House aide Sarah Matthews who quit on the spot said in a prime time hearing the president poured gas on the fire with a tweet calling vice president Pence a coward for not going along with his false stolen election claims It was essentially him giving the green light to these people The president eventually told backers to go home The next day in a previously unaired outtake of a speech to the nation This election is now over Congress has certified the results I don't want to say the elections over Sagar Meghani Washington
Tucker Carlson: Two Standards, One Corrupt Justice System
"Patient. And the judge through the book at her. Here was Tucker's take on it last night on Fox News channel's Tucker Carlson tonight. The sentencing judge Lambert admitted he wanted to make an example out of the cell's lady woman. Why? Because he was frustrated that the defendant in a separate case made statements they were quote embarrassing to me. That actually happened. And therefore, because he was embarrassed by somebody else, Lambert decides to take it out on this elderly woman. And that's horrible. That's not justice. It's the opposite. And it gets worse. At the same time, this was happening. The U.S. attorney for D.C. at the same point they were sending an elderly cancer patient to jail, this same U.S. attorney's office announced that they were dropping charges against 9 members of Stephen Colbert's production crew. Now, capitol police had caught this group of producers trespassing inside the longworth House office building on the evening of Thursday, June 16th. We brought it to you when it happened. So they were walking around the capitol complex without authorization. Parading, that's a crime. Now, capitol police had warned Colbert's producers that they were restricted area, but they ignored the warning from police. They returned anyway with the help of several members of Congress. That would include Adam Schiff and Jake auchincloss. But the other day, the U.S. attorney for D.C., a Biden appointee called Matthew graves, said that they're allowed to walk with no charges. So here are the new rules. If you're a regime propagandist, you can do whatever you want. You can trespass in the capitol. You won't be charged by Joe Biden's prosecutor. But if you're an elderly cancer patient who votes the wrong way, you go to prison. Those are two standards. One justice system. That's corruption.

Professor Randy Barnett Summarizes 'Astonishing' SCOTUS Term
"Barnett, would you summarize the term, which is about to wrap up in a few hours? Astonishing? I can summarize it in one word. It's astonishing. Let me put it this way. One of the things that was said for some time, especially after the NFIB versus surveillance ObamaCare debacle that I was involved in, as you know, is that 5 votes are not enough. You need to have sex. It's like it's like, you know, it goes to 11. You need one more. So it's like Ocean's Eleven. You need one more. So you need 6, not 5, 6 changes, the complexion of the court, a lot. And 6 by 6, I mean, 6 legal conservatives of one variety or another. And I think now this we finally see the difference between 6 and 5.
Brit Hume Rips January 6 'TV Production' Hearing
"Let's start with Britt Hume. Last night on Fox News with Brett bear, I said grab this because he is slamming the Nancy Pelosi one 6 committee after the hearsay testimony of miss Hutchinson cutting them 11. What it did do now that the testimony is being challenged is it shows why it's not a good idea to put witnesses on that without any cross examination or any viewpoints expressed from the other side of the issue when there is another side and certainly it is in this case. This is what the committee has decided it will do. It will put on a TV production, which is what it has done. And it seems to have tripped itself up on that because the testimony is now being disputed openly by the Secret Service. First of all, I said the beast, but it was the smaller Secret Service SUV, but either way, how does this happen in a committee that's that scripted and that laying all of this methodically out, they call this surprise hearing and then they trip on this and it opens the door to critics of the committee from the beginning. Well, I think it's consistently what the committee has done though. When you think about it, they'll call witnesses before the committee and the witness will be sitting there and then the committee will proceed to play excerpts from the deposition, the video deposition of the same witness. It's a very peculiar way to proceed. You know, I've been around Washington a while. I covered the hill for a long time. I don't remember any committee where all the members were chosen by one party, even the minority parties representatives. And they're all on the same page. They all agree. Well, if you don't have any dissenting voices, this is the kind of thing going to happen. Some mistake. After two of the congressmen were turned down, then the minority leader walked away, but it still does not have any pushback. And where does it go from here? No, you need that to have credibility. You need that. And so does it have credibility at the end, do you think? Well, if this blows up, this sensational testimony, which I don't think advanced the ball on the committee's main thesis. But this testimony which everybody was in rhapsody is over yesterday, blows up and has found to be seriously contested and in doubt, I think that will damage the credibility of the committee and his final work product, whatever that may be. Of course, always right
US Boosting Forces Across Europe Over Russian Threat, Biden Tells NATO

Total factors like that I always played only exactly like that. You'd such a different perspective for every player and every? That's really the bottom line and there's no right or wrong. Just help. Who is this person solicited. Who are they as a player ever record collection different things. And as our conversation comes to a close, I have one more opportunity to thank. The man was not only inspired me personally. But it's inspired millions of others worldwide as you said, you would be loss for words talking to James Booker. I'm usually not lost for words but.

"Playing the her. I wanted to ask you. as you go through all these shows and through the years. What's? What do you want that audience to take away from an experience with George Winston well wherever you just leave that up to the individual. WHO's each? Each individual is completely different. Relationship was honked music. I when I go, see something I'm a student out, even claps. I'm taking notes. You know. People think I'm the least appreciate appreciative on it, and probably the most recent while so. Somebody could go. He's not into it at all I'm busy, you know. I never city by your body I. Know I you know. This studying here, so so I just each person. Really asked their own process pictures tastes. Just to play the songs well as I can and. Everything's good as With what I got at the time. There's nothing else that present moment. There's no. There's no show that's all it is. One. As the cats that they can't see the back go, there's nothing there's no show. Song. Likes never change. Nothing ever changes Sin Song's and that's kind of an arena of limitations like longs to now people use all kind of multimedia. That's their art. Finest. Song has to. And nothing else. Not sure not anything. But other people wardrobe will be part of the show. That's just legitimate. Artistic frame set setting. I tell on just like liberace. Exactly what I want and it's nothing. Had Different. Decorations stuff I'm the same way. Decorations there's no decoration, but it's no not one just not better than the others just Wardi. Who Are you? What are you trying to express? Did you ever fight against that creatively? Did you ever did you did that? Ever become a challenge of saying hey. I'm more of a simpleton from that perspective. Did it ever make you want to add more? Or how was it? You were so confident in that art form in which you were a solo artist laptops much confidence as it is just, that's what it is to me. Remember I. Find Oregon Advance My. Take stand up. Back and forth. Claims Song Good, and there's there isn't anything. It everything else would be a distraction. I couldn't talk to somebody play. I'm not a singer met. I couldn't sing and play. I can't look at the audience and play. I can't do anything play and that don't want to are something. Anything that distracts music.

Old. Abbott. Cats. Extremely excited like a little kid. And it seems like you carry that that kid part of you. So when I talked about getting nervous. What would have been your advice to me? Of how I was nervous before this interview and talking to somebody that I've looked up to all my life. George soon as you can't. Goes. Long. WAIT WORST IS GOING TO BE A. If you do sooner by the time you would've gone. You're done. Shoot as possible something you don't WanNa. Do not do it. You're GONNA do it. You know you're going. You don't do it now. You're going to do it, thank. You can't always do it sooner the better. Talking with you is something I've always wanted to do in my life and so I was very nervous. You've made this I wanted to say I wish I had a sustain pedal because I think You've been an influence on how I love that. Sustain pedal number one. Yeah the way the piano ringed out is one of the reasons I not just one. Thing but right stain I like better than order strings or anything. And now that's stained was the. Other reason I play piano, and in addition to that I wanted to let you know that I'm not wearing shoes on just wearing socks on this interview. If you have attended a George Winston concert in person, then you know exactly what I meant. When I told him I was not wearing shoes for the interview. But, for those of you that haven't let me quote George Winston's Wikipedia page. Quote Winston Tresses. UNASSUMING, assumingly for his shows playing in stocking feet. Stating. That equates his heart beating pounding left foot. And for years. Winston would. Walk out on stage. And just a flannel, shirt and jeans. Some of the audience with think, he was a technician coming to actually tune the piano, but no. That was George Winston. And as we hear from him later in the interview, this is all a part of his art. This is a part of his music. This is part of WHO Georgia's. Hanno. Dicker Folk, the ATO melodic. I'll Came up with that and then seventy one is a compliment temple stuff fats waller. Wanted. Now as well. I notice aid. Like out of this you. Know over time years years later. There's just this one thing you know how. Songs need these other sounds. I found three other settings. Harpsichord played really played Arc's core. I think they've got settings kind of mutating setting travel, setting or something so. Other settings and the piano. One is to new strings one hand play with the other. Strings coast you, the other is you pluck tap on strings. That's another setting and that start setting his. Wage hope can let me in the strings. Wait inside her ix. Like guitarist. Yeah overuse I found the settings because I didn't do it linearly did it because the songs need it? Didn't need something I don't know. It's kind of like I think if you really need something conscious of finding like. You've never not found. You need it ever right. Never phone downstairs. Grocery bags always make it to the table. So it's like if you if Asong needs something. And you want it. You'll find it. There's there's not a technique three you want it. It's just kind of get one or two. Oh, I mean I don't think. This disciplined for saying. How do I? How do I? Try To what things, yes? You could say what disciplines have healthy want. What what? My Watch. It doesn't mean that it's good if I watch something either. One hundred miles an hour right now, right? That doesn't need it. Say while.

Along those of that sub-conscious in I love how you let that sub-conscious come to life, you pay attention to it in to your point about it being so busy life being so busy it's it's like we try to.

I don't look logos or Sure pay issues this, I. Listen this I. Mean Some people are that artistically? I'm not alone, but it could be. The subconscious could also say the answers to play. Touch me slow. The answer could be that I'm slow dancing with somebody and touching them. What's that about? And then later on I go oh, touch me, you know I. Don't have that happen that much, but I think it could happen that way to sort of hints like somehow I've just not capable consciously of receiving incorrect information, so it's GonNa.

A symbol that's direct word as far as an indirect. himbal I wouldn't know what to do that. I don't think Oh. Maybe I would better now talk about it.

Or not being able to open a trunk. It's still putting that in perspective, and just you just fit all these things together so well said in A. Bigger picture that car for year all the time warn.

I have two free throws. The game would go into a trance and I wouldn't even know what I was doing and I'd make them. Wow, in fact, one was get the next round in the state tournament. Posing Schools Jim down by one and. Two free throws one second one second left of course. Everybody in the gym is yelling if this on. That walls Z. to a trance. Didn't even look at the basket. Is it just I just made them amazing and other times in basketball. Somebody told me the ball I. Just throw it up in the air to go in. And what even seeking what even look at Basque? That's kind of disown temporarily, and then there's a couple of games where maybe three games right? Just you know became Michael Jordan, no. But very very rarely, and music can take a true three times where you just go into this zone, the subconscious eight and just do. Sometimes. You don't even know you're in it like recording riders on the storm can after recorded it. For the doors I m the denouncing to help and. Come on the and listen. Y. There's nothing there I didn't feel the things nothing there. He played packages that when I did, I don't. Actually. It's not perfect, but we have to keep it because I'll never even play it anywhere. Here similar to that ever again and I, don't to this day. I haven't even heard it as day you know I mean Gosh listen to it sets. But I never. This is like a great anomaly. Then I'll never. Couldn't you know if I? Thought it twenty years. I wouldn't play that way so I just walked out so that we know of zone out, just kind of four. Kind of not fired. And other times in the studio in very inspired hot. Too much stuff to. That's no good at all, so it's recordings pretty large. Awhile. I'll. Go to not listen to a few days later, maybe listening few weeks later right even years later well I, never realized your pass was sports.

Practice practice basketball fact free throws factor, jump shots. Defensive moves music on the piano different. Striped Bass. Acting, certain right and licks. This different approaches within the. Keyboard kind of a basketball court. This is what you do with this. Yes, and. There's various disciplines within that. Fortunately, it's great. It's not basketball. I'm playing the West mess me up. What a relief! So attack athletics made music easier 'cause nobody's trying to to stop me so and then the you know whatever muscles gotta be shaped. Yours risks. You know. It definitely definitely helped, and then the kind of concept of teamwork, well right teamwork just like well. Who Am I playing for? And what within a song that I really actively playing? WanNa play at this particular audience I plan for. Your Senior Center it might be Tennessee Walsum Guitar Right No. It's a concert. Might ex give similar record? Taken account who I'm playing for. It's. Still, doing my thing because it's still thank songs I, really WANNA play. It's just there's no way in this particular. Have to say all right. What's the ones don't WanNa play at this situation now. The panel concerts have got some show winter. Show I'll be doing the winter show time. Which is what regard is all inter tax? Yes and then the next time someone show. Spring and summertime song they. Sets change over time and there's alternate songs that keep track what I ask when I played last time. The bottom line is what do I want to do right now? being in the present moment. So like we all do with any we plan for the future right, but then we deal with things. Is at the same time, so the planning is part of it that? What you do canes always Martin to. I know s George. His advice would be to not only other piano players, but creative people in general. And it's here where we start to get into the conversation of the subconscious in the importance of listening to that subconscious. If you had a room safe filled with composers and particularly solo artists, and if you could just give like. One Nugget of advice for any creative person right not necessarily just sold piano, but Authors writers producers, and if they could hear you, know George, Winston give him one piece of advice. What what would that be? What viewers music I'd say if nothing else learned the twelve minor Colbert's. If it's in general, I'd say subconscious. Pre. Intel's throwing gets pretty smart. He'll.

I can only imagine like there's probably not a lot of other people coming out with these solo albums during that time. was that something inside you that you were like i WanNa do this. I can do this because I think about all of what you've really opened the door for for so many thousands of artists and I try to put yourself in those shoes, and as twenty three years old in Nineteen seventy-two. Did you ever feel like? Oh, my Gosh! I'm kind of starting something that hasn't existed before. No I I. Only, played solo heard fats waller. And then a friend of mine told me about the guitars John.

That's right. It's just knowing something can be done. I urge Sam like Solo. Her MANCA I didn't know you could play a drone or play based accord same time frame. Just like you do on piano. Had No concept. Now you still gotta? figure out how to do it. It's kind of like you know if you sell every kid somebody whistle. Probably wouldn't know to do that on their. I wouldn't put the exact. Same Spot, then you. You fool around with it, then you. Actually get snout. Mentors to be. After showed me like facebook me. Possibly play all these. He says he's Rock and these are. Solo. and. Band approach it that way. I'd actually quit playing in nineteen seventy seven, because I couldn't be fats waller. I read that somewhere, and that was so surprising to me. When I read that I was like Oh. My Gosh George, had quit playing for a while and I read somewhere. It was because like you said a fats waller, who I know was an influence.

How'd the evening? I ever played Solo. What Solo by the original J. smoke takes it was. Very very few things I play or solely instrumentals. And So! This work on the Piano or Monica right just. Work Mouth yesterday. I chased keith original voter because piano. Just watch differed. Element is me or do I want for tempus. Play some of its all these songs. He recorded in half of the flap.

I if I minored worked. Of the nature of the piano nature how I play! I don't analyze it i. just say it works Dawson's. Wise it working. It's not going to be useful for me to know why, because it's not gonna fly every songs completely different every caddies. Works what's but those with one cat isn't necessarily be good that the. Will and when and when you talk about how you approach a song. You have this great balance of. How do you balance letting something come naturally like the weather leading something form. With the hard work that you do consistently in making a song like how do you marriage those two together to come up with what you ultimately want? Interpreting Attic Yeah, either interpreting or composing your own Song I know you talk a lot about the interpretation, but you seem to have this great mix of letting things. Be Natural in serendipitous with working hard to get what you want. Sipping I came up with it happened. It's just playing the piano. a piano ash offer if it's somebody else's song. Well. I. We have to deal with two thirds of it because the chords and melody and everything Rhythm Sardi there I see I see it's just given be. Over time you know like I like I. The rhythm on the Doors Song of Taibbi. I treated as valid half speed. Work didn't work at the temple eight hundred. Didn't work for me valid. It worked I. have. kind of playing the piano.

Or you might do the linear and go this way that way. That way, but now okay this I played. It just works. You might do it that way to discovering you're. Either do something or do nothing either try different temp oaths, or don't do anything it come to you GOTCHA. And not only with your approach to piano music, but a lot of people. Some people don't realize that also you might approach the guitar. A little bit more free where it doesn't have limitations or that harmonica where? You know you can approach that a different way than piano music. Pretty much the same approach, okay? What works on the EASTMAN ACA? Llamas the Appalachian stuff. Some work that earned her Monica some work that get tar. Fair's fair few that working. But. Mostly. Star Monica and. sometimes I'll be talking Monica after. I don't really like I like I i. don't really. Anymore, but I still like to to. Work Char-, so it's good to have the three options. Yeah, essentially Tong player so unlike Song I. WanNa play it.

But about five or six or seven of them that I play now or future records fifty number three. Recorded and Actually number thirteen issue number eleven with one listen to James Booker's junco partner album. You can instantly hear the relationship influence. He had on Winstons Music. James Booker was born in December of nineteen thirty nine, in New Orleans with a flamboyant style and patch over his left eye. There wasn't much he couldn't do on a keyboard. Skilled in classical music playing Bach and Chopin. To mastering the elements of Stride Blues Gospel in panel styles. Booker became known in some circles as the black liberace. Another interesting note. Booker also had some run INS with the law enforcement New Orleans and who is the district attorney at that time? Harry connick senior. According to Wikipedia. CONNICK would discuss law with booker during his visits to the Kana comb. And made in arrangement with musician, whereby a prison sentence would be nullified in exchange for piano lessons.

With that we thank you James Booker. For passing an important musical torch. Oh! I combined picture five and six so. Not My get on some album. If it's fits within the context and it seems like when you talk about that context, teams are really important to you. As you approach an album heard in some other interview like maybe it was bookers or it could have been. Actually WanNa grow all these albums you talked about eleven's great chapters. Make this album and it seems like you have the same approach with those albums that you've put out. Is that how you think isn't when you said? Seasons is also bring. Those songs have to fit together as a theme me, yeah, I. It's kind of like you're doing a movie soundtrack and you're serving the movie. Except, there's no movie. so what happens I'll I'll notice. Over time that. There's five or ten or however many songs. A certain things like forrester planes or summer. And then. I'll look for. Songs are. Put together. Over time that that within and then see what works together and put it in the right order takes years for all. Out of seven years, I was seventy three to eighty a while. The doors to thirty five years. To to. The door socks so y'all notice. I cause any of it. And I. Notice it I don't. Try To 'cause it or couldn't or don't whatever that is I don't expect the weather. I kind of notice it and then react you know. in my put a song together. It'll just sort of come up on. The On the storage. Maybe that's pretty good. Next Day. Okay. It's still there. If you wait. Introduction I far all. My effort is in practicing. Effort is. What to do that. That's These Chelsea what to do? I guess you'd say. Like the weather what to do, what kind of coach where? You know. There's similar kind of things. Weather what's it like there forty or fifty today around fifty We had about two days ago. Further west of Sioux Falls. There was about twenty inches of snow. It's so it is melted here, so we're not too bad. Where about that forty five fifty degrees, so you should be road should be good when you come in so. Dodging all. You know whether yeah, you got. For leaving brainard just after. East Arnie Carney Nebraska after after a rapid right the BOULDER DENVER Eighty again they're on. Get everyone. That's probably what what we you know.

You know within a five six hours. No, that's probably a season. You can't capture album right there. In Montana ex eastern Montana always crowded. There's the two audits. Autumn, so different early autumn late winter was so much different to earlier. You know people put Linear definitions on things. Yes, that's not reality. What somebody said what it was and you can use as reference white, but. I think one needs to make their own reference points where it's appropriate how you don't really do to. Somebody in the sippy would. To wonders so I I, think the linear approach things if a useful tool. Depending on what the project is known. Physics it's not the primary to not I. I took the thing learning music. Courts to down to put labels numbers on music like. You know you pick number saw in the universe. How far this is!

You know so. Netflix part of the spectrum, but You know definitions can. I can say and. Half History English. What do they call that? Anglo Saxon lacks up. That's nothing to me, absolutely nothing. About any ancestry to be as W., B. What I'm doing now. How would you consider to be real? Airbus got different kind of perspective so great. The states like those borders aren't real.

It's not always easy. I'm not saying it's easier to. They can be done and so. You know if you want to be a dancer. If you WANNA be position. If you want to. Don't sit, say man I, wish I wish I. Wish Great, you know, go do. Apply yourself now. If you don't do something, I tell people I said you must have been afraid of the work that it would have taken to get done. You can't do what you WANNA do. Math. That is so true it. Record you. How did you take Yourself Matthew? Like. What did you think you not practice? It's you know it's? It's funny. How say this about about? My journey real quick is that people don't realize that it's taken me twenty years of grinding just to get here today, and it's it's you know it's. It's a grind in its day after day after day after day after day and again going back to your life story of where you've come from and what you've done. This isn't something that's happened overnight for you. This is if people. People look more into your story. And they look more of what you have brought out an and how you take it to the world. It gives permission to others to say. Look at this like if Murali can do this. We all can do this if Maryland can take what she's gone through and what she does today that gives all of us inspiration to go out and shape the world in which we WANNA. See it. If. You could tell people listening to this podcast. You know one piece of advice either to help them improve their life in some way or coming from this book with gratitude What would that be? Outside to be present because. You know if your president and he's slow down to appreciate life and appreciate more. That's around. You appreciate what you have versus what you want or don't have instead of going from point a to point B.. Pay attention to what's in between. There's so much there. You will appreciate things every meal that you have. Every. Encounter that you have with someone. Sometimes people smile at me what there is and I notice it. Just because someone smile, it doesn't mean that they perfect. That doesn't mean they're happy. It means they want you to be. They gave you a gift, so it's just if you notice that. It can enrich your life so much so I encourage people to your gratitude doesn't mean say thanks and move on. It means take time to reflect on that moment. At what gift was that you just received? What was it? And you'd be surprised. So many kept possibly see them off. Any! I you know when you talk about between the NBA I love how you stated that it's that dash in between that's filled with that beauty, and and thank you for reminding me of that. Where can we find your book? And where can they follow.

A blog at CD baby in the title of the article is five. Miss about being a musician with a day job. And as many of you know many of you know me I do have a quote, unquote day job as well as my music career, and the things I do musically so for many many years I have balanced these two worlds and I. Don't pretend to be a master balancing them or pretend to have it all figured out. By any means but I received some excellent feedback. I received comments from all around the world on this hearing from other independent artists that are in the same. Predicament or in the same situation. that I think many independent artists are and so I'm going to not only address talk at a high level about this article. But also the I want to answer some.

I can't do both. Another myth out there. the third. If I didn't have an eight to five job, I'd be much more successful in my music career. Maybe you've heard that made you haven't. I've heard that. And not only have I. Heard that I have thought about that a lot..
