"Rock band, the Grateful Dead right course. So they still chore, But they're not called the grateful anymore. They're called the dead and company because it's some guys that were in the band and then some friends just sort of it. What is it? John? Marriage John Mayer often tours with I don't think he was at this show over the weekend. New York at a dead end Companies show a fan legit, died after he fell off a second floor balcony.

The Electric Grid-Lock
"Robinson. Mayer is a writer at the atlantic and author of the newsletter. The weekly planet so robinson. Let's turn up very basically How is the power grid in the. Us organized nationals state by state. Oh well it's it's a disaster honest basically. There's three grids in the us. There is the eastern grid which kind of runs to the middle of the country. There's the westerner connect and then there's texas and we are just going to set x aside. So here's the thing. All the grids within those big interconnections like talk to each other and are connected so you could move electricity from like connecticut to new york to new jersey even though those are kind of like three different local grids. Yeah but like. You can't move electricity super easily from oklahoma to new jersey. The dream of a national grid is that you build those across the country so that we have like basically like an electricity interstate highway system linking the whole country. What is so bad about the current situation. I mean what would actually be so much better if everything were fixed and perfect like i dunno with power bills be like a quarter as expensive. Would they be like a couple of bucks. Plus would it be like our carbon emissions would go down by eighty percent. I mean what are the stakes here. The stakes here. I think are really two fold. The first is gonna need transmission to solve climate change. We just need it. that is blowing. My mind is not that big of a deal transmission. It's really so. It's a huge deal to fight. Climate change right. We need to build as much low-carbon electricity generation as possible right as many renewables and so it is just true that we have a power system that right now. Basically relies on kind of power plants to generate electricity. A lot of the time and we're moving to a power system where we have to be kind of more entrepreneurial about where electricity is flowing from anyone moment
Heres Why Tesla Is so Important
"Everybody raum our here and today we're gonna be talking about a couple of really important reports. First tesla's most recent impact report which has a ton of fascinating details and it won't go through the highlights. There that release also coincided with a huge new report on climate change by the will spend some time on that as well and then we've got a few other quick hits of news which will run through at the beginning. Quick look at tesla stock another relatively low volume day to day to start the week off just under fifteen million shares traded but tussles up two point one percent on the day to seven hundred and thirteen dollars. Seventy six cents that compared to the nasdaq up about two tenths of a percent. Cosstalk did see an upgrade today from jeffries and almost philippa who schwa- upgrading from neutral to buy which as we've talked about upgrades like that where they're actually rewriting. The stock those are more significant to analysts than press targeted adjustments. But that being said he did increase his price. Target from seven hundred dollars per share up to eight hundred fifty. From the note quote valuing tesla is as challenging as ever we raise our discounted cash flow base price target from seven hundred dollars to eight hundred fifty dollars on higher profitability and accelerated growth. While at thirty five percent five year compound annual growth rate. we remain below tessa. Guidance of fifty percent as trend growth desa currently trades on nine times revenue and sixty two times earnings before interest and tax a level disconnected with auto multiples but in our view more consistent with net growth lack of legacy issues and wider addressable markets including energy generation and storage and one. Quick little note here. Just because i do see these inflated allot tesla has guided for greater than fifty percent growth compounded annually for vehicle deliveries. That doesn't necessarily mean revenue would grow at fifty percent. Plus obviously it very well could but that's not what tesla has specified so to me. It's not super clear but it does look like in this case. Jefferies is comparing their revenue forecasts tesla's vehicle delivery guidance and tennessee that a lot so just wanted to point that out next year. We've got an update on giga texas. From joe tag mayer. He does drawn flyovers there and remember last week. We had talked about him here. He that tussle was going to be doing a test. Production run for the mentawai next week. Which would not be this week

How branding helps with sales conversion absolutely. So let's define branding the best way that i've learned it as a person expert in this space for over fourteen years. It's the gut feeling people get when they interact with you. Your business product or service. It's that old saying you know what they say about you.

Those are your brand assets but brand. Is that feeling that connection that experience that people receive when they come in contact with your business.

And that is the singular song that I've always gone back to since I touched a piano and. About Alpe Planet. Tomorrow night I play different songs still changed. They don't get played anymore. But.

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.

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.

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.

Falls South Dakota on one of the many cities that he's performed and is still touring yet this year. and.

Relax and enjoy this part to interview with the Great. George Winston. Another thing that I admire about you so much. Not only you're a parent work ethic. You seem to have a good sense of when to detach from things whether that be a song whether that be a creative process that isn't working and then went to let it come out naturally and the other thing I love is when you talk about all this thing didn't work out well. That's the way it was supposed to be for now. It could be could be. Like I did with the song. Touch me you know like later. It worked out and I was glad but I had other doors I'm working on doors. By. Volume two. So I didn't have a lack of song, so it wasn't like this has to work has to be on the. I mean there are certain things you. Have to be on the record. Well, that's not much of an attachment is a realization. Like. 'cause you can have to wait until I figured out how to play the song because the album. Nietzsche Salk, however I do and. Try to have as part of the spectrum, a live, just a little pitch of this doesn't really matter for everything. I could doesn't really matter. If I, an Tau I mean is kind.

You're talking about all these influences George. You know you're talking about waller and booker and Gorell, Dean and Professor Longhair and. And all of these that you've given. You know you've tipped your hat to over the years. Does it ever hit you that now? The Name Winston? Is, what is the influence to so many people like myself and thousands and thousands of others? No Curry I'm I'm still a student so I'm I'm the one. I guess I can intellectually say theoretically. That's possible back. It doesn't really. Compute with me. Maybe? Maybe it's true but I. It's just. It's kind of like What branch spring water is somebody drinking well I don't know. I. Don't care you know. kind of like. Their preferences their preference in the should. Go with their preference and have the. Ability to do, so, you know I'm. Right to do so so I have. To think about, it never really occurred to me. I think that's one of the many reasons, not only the humility that comes out with your music, but also it shows in how much you give back. I mean you've given so much not only to proceeds from the drives that you've done. Does. That ever hit you as well as just how much you have given to so many people. Tried to much as possible the. I. Should You PROB- i? Forgot? Who the local food bank is there but Railways invite local food bank, and that's people have been canned food if they can, and now the proceeds and the CDs always benefit the local food foodbank.

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.

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.

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.

He has put in his entire life I couldn't help but reflect in. Want to ask him the question. Of how he released his very first album. Back in Nineteen, seventy two. Let me, ask you this, George, when you recorded your first album in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy two. And then you compare to where you are now, you know Dr-.

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.

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.

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.

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.
