"Grass is always greener. In a if if you have a solid relationship that you really value in you you. You know I think I think it's natural for anyone to have fantasies. You know regardless of what situation they're in, but. I think you just need to. Recognize it for what it is in in sort of. A. In a know sort of ticket tickets second to to to really value what you do, have currently. because ultimately that's GONNA. Be Much more. Important and beneficial to your life and just some. Now do as beautiful. Right out there, thank you. Connection is the best you know. I. Grapple with it sometimes like better to be alone and just like living freely, but then when you do connect with someone, it feels so different. You know what I mean. It's just like. Life's a lot better. When you feel connected to the person you're, you're with so if you get along great with your girlfriend just. Leave it in fantasy, because the fantasy might not even be as good in real life as it is in your head so. That that's just a part of human nature. A little bit, we we. We have these gaps and how we feel. Like, they say. Take US whilst we can't go crazy trying to fill that gap. Start to see some very interesting threads around the. Like stoker, way of way of thinking, and that's the definitely like the kind of appreciation of the moment going back to the idea kind of. Almost like mindful thinking of what's happening in the present, but because my my answer would would be a very different one, which is like nineteen is quite young to. To, imagine oneself in a permanent kind of romantic relationship, and there's probably a lot of. A lot of other lot of life changes that will happen that. May Or may not preclude. Relationship with an older person at another point, but but I would always get. Give the moment, I would think about like the forward. Thinking about like dude, nineteen is really young. He's not. Know Take it easy. Yeah. You're probably right. You're talking to I'm thirty. Two so I'm like. I thirty two. Exactly you bring up a great point I. Actually I didn't realize he was nineteen so. I for some reason when questions I get like fragments of Info. Under the why that is! A. Question that I wanted to ask you guys that I want to ask earlier. Can I ask it? Yes, sure! Yeah, okay, so So you. You know like from from my book and the other the conversation with. Colin that your beauty is so important. In, this world of the VIP world, and also I think a lot about it know having come from the fashion modelling world. I'm curious about like in your in your world you. Being Being kind of. Producers and Even not so much podcast I guess, but like. Does beauty pay play a role for you guys like? Do you see the beauty premium in like this kind of world for men? In like for us or like just gentleness world well for you guys in particular, and like as your as you're kind of moving through the the the world of. I don't want to call you like influencers. Imagine if you were on that path. Yeah. I mean I think anytime you're in A. Job where visibility is such a big part of it that The I wouldn't call it. Beauty looks and health used does is the words because it probably feels more comfortable for me. That like that stuff is really important. You look at like Paul Rudd the. Guy Has age like a day since clueless. He looks better now and we all like love him for it, but there's no way that's just through. Help. That's a fulltime job he has. They're looking like so pristine. I do think I've seen this Saturday. I do think there's something when you're watching someone you feel better. If the person you're watching looks healthy like if they don't have to be beautiful, but if they look like the healthiest version of themselves. And they take their health seriously especially in this era with like podcasting instagram. We're so close to the lifestyle of the person following I think that does matter because like Kevin Hart the Rock. They all work out constantly, and it's a big part of why people like them, so but I. Love Working on Anyways, so I feel better when I'm working out so I do, but I also take propecia Adama hair to keep the grades out so I'm I'm definitely doing sheets like. Stay Young. Yeah Yeah, I'm superindent into health and stuff. by I think maybe. A lot of it is the reason may be. It allows for the maintaining a like a useful look. Why they even though for men the The so much research suggested you. You can get better looking as you get older. Like you're you're arc of of having beauty capital. You probably still far away from the peak of it. Yeah Yeah, yeah, I, think a May maybe a useful may not just like looking good, I think. You know. I want to be healthy by a lot of is vanity to. For me I'm huge. Yeah, like you know if have to be on camera. After something like I won't drink. You know for awhile before because stuff like that become much more conscious of it. And just sort of. Getting outside exercise steps so I. do sort of. whether consciously or subconsciously consciously think it plays a huge role great being in La, too. It's it's like one of the more like body. Conscious cultures right totally, and then I grew up in Orange County, which might even be more conscious, which is pretty wild, but if you're asking me if I stress about it, the answer is a big ten four. Worried about it all the time. We did a videotape jump rope. Guys were a tight t shirt. was sticking out in it and I just watched that video for three straight days just staring. Like I was like Oh my God. Actually. It was making me think to. This is kind of like A. Have some shame over thinking this but I think like being on camera. Is like this is a more broader question, but like do you guys think being on camera is like? Inherently Feminine in so far. Is that the more you're on camera? The more you think about glamour, which is traditionally a feminine kind.

"That's awesome all right. Let's answer some listeners questions. Were between brothers and I apologize of these can be a little long. What up council I come to you with a very distressing family dilemma. My brother has recently turned against our mother and I. He seems convinced that everything I say is somehow an attempt to manipulate them when I tried to tell them that there's nothing he has that I. Want so bad that it would have to manipulate him for. He took it as an insult. Insulting is seemingly out of nowhere. He used to say that he admired that. Always just saved I'm thinking and so he doesn't have to worry about what I mean by what I say, but now everything is interpreted as manipulation even if I don't realize that's what I'm doing in quotes. When our mother came to my defense, he said we were ganging up on him. It's to the. The point where we don't speak anymore, because everything I say they twist to fit this image. They have in their mind of meat trend of me trying to be some kind of puppet master. Now they're posting about me online oop rule and I don't know what to do. If there's even anything that can be done at this point, thank you for your consideration a very unstuck stoker. Kinds of questions a lot. This one's pretty unique actually. His older brother nobody get any of those details. Have guessed like early twenties. I would say probably. just based off. The issue and the majority of the questions we get. The age must questionnaires. It's tough. It's tough to say what to do. Not knowing more, but I would say if your brothers saying that to constantly. that. Maybe the best step is to I. Really Question Yourself if it might be true and ask yourself if you are being a little bit, I have a tendency to be a bit manipulative and be a little puppet mastery, so I can. I've had friends accused me that and sometimes they were just stoned weird, but other times. I think they were valid in the criticism so I don't know I would. I would You don't want to be your brother and you don't want your brother. Thank your toying with them so I would maybe just talk to say I'm GonNa make sincere effort not to do that anymore. And then if you, you try really hard for a couple of months, and he's still saying it then in good faith, you can be like Bro. I'm honestly I'm trying to be hyper conscious of IT I. Don't think I'm doing it anymore. If I was doing, and I think we now have to address. Whatever's going on in your but? If if you're not taking a good hard look at yourself it. It's real easy for the other person just to put it all on you. Is that make sense? That sounds like really great advice in very sincere. Solid, thank you. What are you in? question in in the question, he said He. He's like upfront. Honest us as are likely. He prides himself on yeah. Yeah, he said he said that his brother liked that he was so like brass tacks about stuff. It would just like him with like. Truths. Even, if they were uncomfortable, but. Now. He's saying he's being manipulative now. His brother says duty puppet master at every turn. Do there was this stripper show where these guys competed to be the men down under dancers, or whatever on H. One. And what are the guys was like really intense any hated one of the other guys for being so naturally beautiful in such a good dancer, and so he accused him of being like a puppet master, but he but if you watched the show, he just seems like a psycho he's. He's NIP. Heating us, everyone's like what are you talking about? It goes, but I used to crack about this. He goes look, is I? Can. His is manipulating, but he obviously wasn't, and it just made the one guy who's accusing him. Look so crazy. And it made him not sexy. You didn't WanNa watch him dance after that 'cause you're like. Did you got bad energy? We don't want to watch you dance. and he got booted from the show, so yeah, it's not a very good like I. Just I'm being harder on the guy who wrote in because you wrote in, so it's easier to speak directly to what you can do. I don't know I don't know where your brothers coming from on this enough. Maybe, if it progresses maybe like a family therapy switch, do W fire? It's usually a good idea. Maybe do a little research on best practices for those things had an intervention, so it can go south. Oh so true, Oh, yeah! Well yeah because. You know when call the whole family together thin. One person can feel like everyone's ganging up. He's already raised autism. Something he feels? That makes total sense. Yeah, that model is a bit like confrontational. It seems like yeah. But do therapies. The Best Pinchot went to together and it was fired. You just come out of it hugging.

That are kind of on the edge of town. Yeah, it's actually pretty pretty mixed, but it has a has kind of dominant perception as a party school. This town around Greek life. Did you get into football when you were there? Did you get into the Greek life and the whole kind of traditional of Georgia experiences? No now I moved I lived off campus. I never lived in a dorm, so I was kind of shielded from. Some of my sisters is three years older and she was finishing up when I started. It's we live together all knows. And she had lost. Her A sorority so. She was like sorry to hate. Are By the time I got to college? Associate steered me away. Issue now is people are still having to pay their dues, but there's GonNa be no sorority parties this year, but people still have to pay their dues for it yet. I think there could be like a could be cataclysmic for the Greek system colleges. In College, generally I mean there's an argument to be made. College on the whole is become a consumer experience that's geared around parties and the Naples party is through the Greek culture, but not necessarily only and so without that in person party experience. What will what will undergraduate campus life look like, and is it worth the price tag? Yeah I think a lot of what I learned. Something I was mature enough to similarly. Embrace education, but a lot of learn sort of the the interaction, the social interactions with with people's. Glean a lot of wasn't from classes. It's like a the experience Tommy Allott. Or just helped me to sort of. Get through that that. Reckless phase of my life. In a safe way. Out in one piece of Great Myself Skateboarding so awesome. Cool Dude, I love it. You gotTa keep living hard. It's good for him. And what about what about you? What's a lawyer Marymount in Los, Angeles but I. I went to like twenty junior colleges. I I went to Film Trade School for a year and I just like honestly the place. I've probably thought I got the best education learn. The most was borough of Manhattan Community College. Because it was like it is probably the most diverse place. I ever went to school and And you know you're in new. York and it was like. and it was kind of easy to so I I kinda went to like a tough academics. Going I felt overwhelmed and going to junior college was Kinda like I kind of like slowly. Get better at school, and it was really helpful for me, but LMU I was like older than the other kids I didn't kick it with them at all. I didn't want them to know I was older so I never mentioned like Bill Clinton or A car or anything that could sign post me as a user. But, it was a yes it, but you know it's still learn stuff there. I like cheated on bodice is online and stuff like that like I'm not very proud of like. But now I'm going to sign up for a personal finance class or UCLA extension. Which I was so pumped on I haven't done a single assignment. Failing it I can't do homer fundamentally incapable of doing homework and real problem of online education where we're grappling with what to do in the fall. So you actively teach. You have like classes that. So yeah, what do you think what's your perspective on coming back this year? So we're not fully coming back redoing this hybrid thing, so we're going to be in person part of the way. Like I don't know a class will be offering both in person instruction and online, and nobody really knows what that looks like how to do it, so we're kind of inventing it as we go, which means it just like a lot of stress and meetings like some of these meetings? Other lying and nobody really has answers like we. Can. We have class outside? Nobody knows like we'll the Wifi be good enough, because if you have a class and it meets in person, you have to be social distancing, and you have to be talking like this like a mask over your face and computer screen is going to be capturing your lecture to broadcast to students. Who can't be there physically. To, sounds really tough and. yeah, everybody is really panicked about it. And what's what's the primary concerns that student welfare, or is it? The faculties welfare tried some combination of both I guess. What starts with student welfare. I think. Kind of. Cynical take would be like. It's the university's financial welfare in order to get the students to pay their tuition you know to. They pay the tuition for an online education and really take a gap year if they take a gap year, how hard will the university be? Be hit or some universities have huge endowments documents, and they can write it out like Harvard for instance some -versities have relatively modest endowments until they need the tuition for operating costs for salaries. So, so yeah, the there's apple so. There's the concern about if if we do open than than how is it GonNa? Look to protect the students to protect the faculty What do. When the weather changes? Like people start getting colds, and fevers and Gathered like we don't really have such clear answers. This university! I think like all universe season educators right now.

Does he get called? Dude I'm a fire question. Intend to like when people say I'm John Does. So Nice. Yeah, it's like my favorite thing. What is it indicate to you when someone says your Tan like what does it? What does it mean? What are the symbolics of Tan? Time for leisure. Like. What do I think or what does that say to people? Yeah. What do you think it says to people? To positive. This guy is one with the ocean. With Apollo. He's. alive is like he's in California. He's living the California. Lifestyle I think maybe that's the biggest. Still healthy when you're tend to you just like. It's like there's vitality in it. But I know my dad. My Dad had a guy who from named Eddy Mit. I would always complain that Eddie was to Tan, but Working hard enough I was like why is like? He has to Tan. Allegations Jealous. Right so like in the nineteenth century. Having attend would mean that. You're working too much right that you're working outdoors your. Rough course, yes, you wouldn't be in the leisure class, and that starts to flip Until today, having having a Tan, although it's also fashioned so in fashion, Zell's always contact. Specifics are like in. California. It means this one with the ocean whereas you know being being maybe more more fair might be something that would be more valued according to the whims of fashion yet there's different countries off dollar industry to like. Yeah, be later rate, but it also tanning you think of the Jersey shore time period like in the northeast. It was like fake Tan all the time. I hit the fake Tan booth, a couple of times, not proud of it, but I'm not ashamed of it, either you put hard on your body, and then Tan, and you get the heart outline. I had never thought about that. Paul is cool. A. Different forms of 'cause like. Here in California, it says one thing like you're at the beach. Major surfing a lot, but if you're if you're Tannen, you're you're. Living in like a you know the middle of the country. where? You, it's not possible for you to be tanning I think it, says something a little bit different. Like you're either going to like a tanning booth or you're just going to the Bahamas a lot. which maybe conveys a different message? Especially, the fake Tan A. Tan in the middle of winter in the northeast than you're part of like a January holiday set or you're going to. Do. You know what I just realized. My Dad faked hands now. Yeah he fake Tan less than those with unlike do fake Tan look good. GonNa play golf next day. I was like it felt a bit redundant, but Whatever makes you feel good. Sunscreen on. What. All your experience in observing clubs. What Song? This is what I was GONNA ask. What Song is people the most hyped? It's funny. So. It's been a while. so. Don't produce anything by Riana like hip hop actually was more exciting to people. But but, ANYTHING BILJANA WOULD BE EASIER TO DANCE TO HIP. Hop than it is to dance leg house, Electron for me I didn't even know how to move my hips to. Doesn't feel fundamental. Yeah, answer. Some clubs would have some kind of mix. They would transition between would be like A. Kind of the embers of a song or something? but yet. I'm just remembering like the. The the young women they could really like you know. It feels good when you can sing a song with other people I. Everybody knows the lyrics and says wife. Robots are so popular, but like Yeah I. Think like Riano was what they were connecting to i. Love. That one right, yeah, I kind of these remixes with Calvin Harris Syria. Those are popular and Drake was pretty big to like started from the bottom. Now I'm here, so I can imagine that if you're getting bottle service in that song comes on right. Yeah, because it's the mix. I made it on the scene Yet. There's this academic term for this. When that kind of infection of the music happens, and people feel it together when you call at Stoke, but the French theorist, Emil Dirk would call it the collective effervescence. Seto so, hyper learn that turn. The collective effervescence. It's like the guiding logic of I don't know like burning man or even a church service you know when it or like protests like when people start chanting together and they like they feel the vibe together, they body. We're one rain. Hit A ball game. You know it's the kind of logic fandom to. It's like doing this this thing together. You feel like the different sunglasses on. You could see the energy streams between all of us. So I think that it has nightclubs. Nightclubs are beautiful places. Because you can catch that, you can feel that an when it happens it just it feels it really is like a high you know. Yeah yeah, but. It's just the in the clubs. That I studied. Was All of this work that was happening? Behind the scenes to get to that moment in that that work was. So sexist and so racist so exclusionary. You know to create this kind of moment from China ruin the moment. Damn we got. Way To get there. Yeah. Yeah well, it's like when I watched. The bachelor like I'm like this is so produced. This is so contrived. These people are so manipulated, but every time at the end where they when they say I do I'm like I believe in true love this. Packaging. Even if I'm somewhat aware of it, it'll still get. It is really interesting communities of people that watch the bachelor. Like I. Know like some of my professor colleagues like crazy about the bachelor like. Once you start talking about the bachelor with people. It really connects them. Grabs you right away.

"Have a contest to see who could have a bigger feast or who could. Destroy more goods burning burning blankets. News. Sounds pretty fun I mean. Apology was actually like deeply important community, because it was about solidifying rank, so it had consequences in terms of light. Go whoa with. The community rate. I mean the you know who wastes the most champagne or like dumps it off. The you know that's it doesn't have any lasting consequences social order. That's an. Leader though. So, there's some. There's these kind of connections to other. This kinda like wasting is a form of signalling. Prestigious is pretty old And I think will will continue. Right, what can you? Can you explain the public character a little bit? Yeah so the public character, this is a concept that comes from an urban and urban theorist. Jane Jacobs. She wrote a book about the cities and city culture in her book death in life of cities she. Describes how some people in cities like in a neighborhood. Same most people in the city because it's a city, they prefer to move about anonymously. Where like you don't know who's who when you're passing on the sidewalk and you kind of tune people out. But for some people they really liked to be known and kind of moved through the city, hoping to build connections catch attention. Make eye contact. And Jane Jacobs argued that those are the kinds of people that are actually really important to the fabric of community, because people know that people feel safe because of them Like when I was in Grad School I lived in a neighborhood where the you guys that were kind of always out on the stoop and. I could imagine that if somebody didn't know the neighborhoods, they might think that Oh. This is a sign of loitering or something, but because I lived there I, I always felt really really great that they were there and really safe, because I knew that like you know those guys me and I knew them, and we are connected just virtue of like repeated interaction. And so yeah, those kinds of characters are important and the promoters. A I got to know and described them as A public character because when they so this this one guy rave for example. Now his real name but when he's moving through. The city streets. He lived in Chelsea and he would walk down a street. Let's say Prince. And to get to where he was going, and then he wouldn't ever walked back on the way that he came. To meet. New People and like see see what's going on on the other streets. Who can connect you to? New Streets right right. Yeah, he goes on the streets where he knows. Sidewalk cafes 'cause they'll run into people yet. So he makes himself public and it and it it does something interesting in a in a neighborhood. Like the mayor and do the right thing kind of reminds me of the two right. Just a person who says hi to everyone Dj Ever Tell you how he felt about the book after it came out. Now, so I sent him the. The advanced copy and he was, he was just really proud that I had published a book because it took me a long time. I mean I followed him for for a couple of years in. We're keeping in touch and every every time we'd keep in touch it either and check back in just kind of embarrassing like no I'm still working on it because they had two kids, and that will slow you down and Yeah, he was really really glad when the book came out, he's he was very celebratory and then I sent him the book, but. He got the advanced copyright in March so the the world's kind of in turmoil. Yes you. How are these promoters doing during? The pandemic. Yeah, so I am. Their livelihoods are pretty much. Cut off right like the closed. I think, it does expose the. Vulnerability of these kinds of jobs much being fashion model like these are jobs that are really glamorous. They have great lifestyle perks, including travel and access to all these. VIP's and it's freelance, so you're kind of your own boss of your time and yet you to win. There's when there's a market shock like now or big disruption, freelancers they They don't have anybody who has their back rate like they. Would they have unemployment right now? by via the alive them are kind of. Not. Sure what they're gonNA. Do what they're going to transition. D- raised. Kind of. Thinking Next Steps I. Mean Some people were The kind of always hoping that they're going to launch another venture, so they have more time to focus on those other ventures with those other ventures are also like starting a clothing line for instance that's also put in jeopardy, because investments know investors are nervous. a lot of promoters were interested in real estate. And so you know they can do. These other kind of side hustles. More full-time. Guys I'm interrupting this podcast Delano once again. We are brought to you by manscaping skate. Thank you so much for keeping. Our trims pooped for looking after our hogs. For making sure there are dogs are looking fresh and clean. Because You know summer's in full swing.

"Their own personal leg. Perception. But then at the same time they want so badly to. Keep moving up the social ladder that you can't help kind of feel a little bit a compassionate sadness for that. That's right. Yeah, yeah, thank you for I. Think sadnesses three the right kind of tone that that I wanted people to feel because Yeah like they. I. Think it's also the problem of extreme economic inequality there so close to people that are so wealthy. Excused their perceptions of what success should look like it, so they're striving to be super rich, and they can't be happy with the like two hundred thousand a year yet, and they're, and they're their understanding of what wealth looks like keeps changing, so they're changing their outfits in the way that they present themselves but. Like you referenced God speed feels like a bit. Performance the whole time. You're just kind of forum. At the same time they they do some of the coolest gusts. I'd love to. Have Compassion for the wrong. We'll tell me that I think he'd be feeling bad for the other people right right, but they're the main character sort of so you can't help, but whoever the main character is one that I kinda yeah, or the when I heard about the bus You guys probably feel this. I mean in the in the world that you're. The Communist was a question. I had for you like. 'CAUSE now you're you're kind of celebrities in your. In that kind of moment where you have all this recognition. Namely towns. Orange County. County it yeah well. That's a good launching pad for a lot of celebrities. So! Yeah, I don't know if you feel the same kind of like once you get early. The start of success, if like the pressure grows in, you know for sure you let. A lot of it You feel the need to keep building for sure. I mean just to keep progressing in. Keep climbing up. I think a lot of it. which I feel like I've overcome now, but start off beginning was. this feeling. Sort like desire to live up to expectations you know. Like people see in this sort of certain, light any like when whenever you meet them in person you like. You're like Oh. I got you know. I got a be the person they think I. Am you know which is like you realize that? You. Are that person? You know you just as long as you're just nice. And grateful to have them as a fan, or whatever that's enough, but at first it was tricky. Did I. Like I don't know I think just. May, sensitive or self aware that that. That pressure came to my mind, but. I think you just sort of learn as you go along. Yeah. Yeah. BERINA lot stoicism to. which helps me against the mindset of Kazakh with what we do in entertainment, always looking towards like. Climbing in like. Doing a bigger thing in more recognition whatever? And that end stoicism helmeted can just stand the moment and just like. You know I I. Don't need this certain thing in the future to make me happy I can I. Can if like I'm doing what I love already? And, that's enough. which is hard to sort of really? Fully grasp 'cause like we're so with our culture and everything. We're so geared towards A huge success and stuff. Nothing the keys just defined the fun in what you're doing today. That's such a beautiful philosophy. It's still hard I think like an in so many fields like in fashion modeling. Obviously, but because it's it's in fashion. You know. The. Chance of like you might book a big job tomorrow, and then you might have become you know carly cost or like whoever you know like top model. An people are just like constantly striving for that and then every day. There's like so much rejection I really hard to take to take pleasure in the art of making a picture or anything that you know these kind of reef moments The had surprising like academia is also I mean like. Right right? Yeah, it is the same when when someone gets hired for a tenure track position. They have about seven years to try to do as much NGOs best their work that they can. Then you know they'll get tenure hopefully in ten years like this lasting job security. Or was pre pandemic. I. Mean we're not sure but. But Yeah I. Always I was driving so hard pre tenure in always imagined that once I got tenure could just relax a little, but somehow the pressure to you know, keep on that upward trajectory to Scott more intense into, and then time got shorter because I had kids, and then the constant feeling of like am I living up to the expectations of that? I sat or somebody said you know. Yet? It's very stressful. And what's being the author to when he when he released your first book, Did you How did that feel verse two versus to how you thought it would feel? Academic books are a little bit different. I mean it. The way that I wrote my first book, too. It's pretty dry. It's written like a dissertation and so. It's the. It's the book that people publish it the publisher dissertations. Tenure climb so they can get their academic Kudos. and. Know it was really delighted for any of the is delighted that it was received with academia, an outside academia, any kind of extra attention or interest people took an it I was really pleased and flattered and. The bookstore in Harvard Square they told me that they keep it on the shelves because of like mothers. If teenage girls who want to go into modeling, WE'LL ASK. Like ask cry restores, and or they'll look for that book and I was like I was really touched by that. because usually when we when you pull, something in academia gets read by a handful of people, maybe twenty people and that's kind of it. so yeah. That was fine, and I was really just glad that I got the book out early, so it was kind of a relief that could Felt confident going for tenure. ADEQUATE! To Circle, back a little bit. How do you see the sort of club system that we have now? Do, you see it staying around for a while or do you think it's just going to be sort of a brief moment in time? It's really interesting question like. Will this be something that people look back on and be like weird moment that people did in the. In the two thousand teens. Had seen some forecasting that conspicuous consumption would would Would start to evaporate as people become more mindful of the inequality, and and of the importance of things like gratitude, and experiences as opposed to just showing off through consumption. So yeah, there's some reason to to think that. Maybe this would disappear, but I actually think not. I mean maybe the clubbing itself will take a different form, but think that this kind of experience at the club offers which is the capacity to show off I think that that is As wealth inequality continues, and as new pools of wealth grow around the world I. think that this purchasing of status is, we'll probably take other forms, but will continue I. Think about the art market for instance contemporary art. You know the prices that people by some of the art fairs are in Or at auction are just really outrageous they don't correspond in any way to. The work, but at least there is some kind of work that someone can say like. This is an investment piece. Whereas in clubbing, it's really just popping bottles and showing. Now and having that experience. which makes it like a very strange kind of thing, but I think that it will it will continue in some other form maybe. When the displaying waste is like almost a it has like A. A social impact on the people around you right? It says you have so much that you can just kind of throw it away. Right right, yeah, so it does that. It also has pretty deep. Roots in human culture so. The term that I use for it is an anthropology term, called the pot latch, which was something that described Pacific northwest tribes that would gather together. And then the tribal nobles would..

"Do Most people even have fun when they're doing that bottle service stuff like do they seem like they're having a good time or do? They seem stress like what's. It. Really depends on the rhythm of the night. And I guess that's kind of true to stoke more generally that it these are like momentary sensations of uplift. That can't last the last forever. They can't even last for a full duration of an hour. So The course of a night ebbs and flows I mean some some of the people that are going out with promoters like the the models. It might really love electric dance, music or hip hop and they might they might be super excited to be in this kind of place. They might be in love with the promoter. It's taking them out and promoters are very good at being farming and eligible cool. And then you know some people they get really caught up in the moment of spending money, and it can be really like euphoric and exciting to be there in the sparklers, the beauty. The music settings all of that But there are some other moments may be in the same night where people are pretty boards looking. They might be sitting on their phones. Visit some of these clubs like some of them. Supposedly really high ones in Ken and. Eighteen year, old models were like asleep on each other's shoulders sitting on. Sitting at the table right, but the night before it was really fun and everybody stayed out until six am and had to go to the club the next night. I, remember. My Buddy got fouled service at one club this time this one time. His two thousand dollars or something. And what he got was like the table in like a bottle, grey goose, and he's like yeah. I'm going to get bottle. Service is GONNA be awesome and we and we. Kuhlman. Did it and we're all just standing there around the table. This one bottle is rat. The by. It's literally like us just paying for. The ability to stand at this table and feel important. Yeah. Very fleeting. But for some for some people mix of different things that bring somebody out. Maybe it's the novelty of experiencing it, but perhaps for people who might be like so called young money right working in finance getting a big bonus. Maybe this is Kind of opportunity to participate in this very glamorous world that even if you haven't been in these kinds of clubs, you probably know about them from references in hip hop lyrics, and just kind of pop culture more generally are the rich kids of instagram. So this is an opportunity to perform that, and that's and be very fun For some people, it's a pragmatic way to get. To get access to the club. To not have to stand at the bar, they could split the bill with like five other guys in finance. Maybe a two thousand dollar bill doesn't seem that big anymore, or for some people. This is a scene that. Kind of important for them to go out and meet other people that are in their industry is especially the case in people and find it for people in finance, so this might be part of entertaining clients or just kind of being in the milieu of. Young upper-class people that are running in these circles, maybe not necessarily all the time, but for some time. Did you were? You were living a double life doing it because you were acting as one? The models be were also a sociologist. Doing Research, did did you? Did you ever feel completely like a model? Or did you feel like? I'm in more of like an observational, almost undercover role, always undercover role. Because at the time I, always doing this I was already thirty one thirty two. So I was kind of past the point of really losing myself in the music. Enjoying it too much right like for me like the high heels or about four or five inches was just very uncomfortable, trying to stand in those hills for three hours, dinner would start at ten PM. Then we would follow the promoter to a club at around midnight, and then stay are out at least until three sometimes later, and this is pretty pretty physically. Taxing I found a by age. Although I always think if I had to promoters and I was like eighteen. Partied with them I probably would've really enjoyed it and I got a lot more pleasure around of it, but. I mean yeah, so I was. When I started the the project I already had my sociology professor job and I was pretty clear with all of the promoters. This is this is what I wanted to study and write about and I would show them a copy of my first book, which was my dissertation, which was about the fashion modelling industry. I'd say look. I wrote this book and had like to like to study your world and understands how you make a good party. And Yeah for the most part they were. They were really supportive or they're enthusiastic about the idea. Especially because I offered my time that I would come in support them at their table and where my high heels. But I I guess. I mean to be honest some moments that were really enjoyable where I did feel. Quite excited to be there. Something's. We're just really fascinating to observe giving pace with the promoters although it was exhausting. Also became close to quite a few of them. Would consider them at that time. Friends some boundaries around that. but yeah I I was always taking my notes and I always thought of this as If, there were moments that were really uncomfortable. I thought is like good data. Did you gain more Respect might not be the word, but like more appreciation for the difficulties of like the various jobs in that industry, specifically like promoter and or model. Yes, Fisher I well the models. I knew I knew pretty well from my earlier work, so I know that that. Don't make very much money, and it's I guess it's kind of like the world of podcasts Youtube that there's really at the tiny apex is a handful of people that make a lot of money and have celebrity. Then there's like this whole based. Pyramid of people like are really struggling to pay the bills. the the promoters I was quite surprised by how much money they were making like two hundred thousand dollars the the upper end We're just quite quite good for a lot of demand. They hadn't gone to college. You know and they didn't come from. Privileged backgrounds themselves, but a lot of their earnings are in cash. But. It's also pretty expensive job because they're spending so much of their money to on big SUV's that they can then offer rides to the models to drive models around castings, or they're taking models to lunch or to light would ever mixed martial arts classes. And then the promoters are tipping on the dinners, so the the printers actually they're. They're spending a lot of money. When promoter described is earnings as funny money that it comes in, but it goes out very quickly. And on top of what then becomes like, fairly thin margins for their success. They're also just working really hard trying to create the vibe of the party to try to like people that energy amid a lot of them if if they're drinking, this is like six nights a week of drinking. Can Be quite tough for them. It was hard on their relationships. It was hard for them to to keep. To keep steady relationships going often they had. Of several girlfriends, kind of rotating girlfriends I started the project in a I saw the promoters as like. If there were narrative, the promoters would be the bad guys. They'd be like the villains. Because they're making money off of girls slowly predatory ray, sometimes they have very predatory. Practices in the way that they target models in particular. they make a lot of money off of them. It's it's fairly isometric. But by the end of it. Yeah I started to feel a lot of empathy for them that they're also. They're also this kind of quintessential American. Dreamers like they're striving. Yet the do. They all wanna like level up and it makes them kind of. A. Very cynical in how they appraise people because they're constantly thinking of them as like what kind of value.

Ballerina: Fashion's Modern Muse, an interview with Patricia Mears
"On your new exhibition. It is truly magical. It's supremely beautiful. Have to say and I learned a ton from its accompanying catalogue which is called Ballerina. Fashions Modern Muse for any of our listeners. Who WanNa pop on over to Amazon and pick up a copy so for any of our listeners. Who like me may not be ballet aficionados? I'm hoping I we can do a little bit of Bali history just a little bit. When do I see the emergence of ballet? And what distinguished? It from other types of dance which preceded it bally's quite an old art form the genesis of what you see today. The basic steps in the positions were already in place as early as the sixteen sixties. The first formal school was started in sixteen sixty one under the auspices of Louis. The fourteenth who himself was a very accomplished valeted Ella. It was clearly an aristocratic endeavor. And you see that carried over today. This would erect posture. This sort of very formal movement of the body so in some ways it is part of that French also regime aspect and we still see it today but ballet's also a very athletic endeavor so it's marrying these two extremes if you will sort of restraint kind of technical Bravura and again. That's why I think they call ballet dancers artists athletes. Yeah because they merged the two and then fast forward. The ballet went from being aristocratic very classical in its themes and male dominated to about the eighteen. Twenty eighteen thirties when women take over ballet's international. It's much more standardized and very importantly the romantic style. The sort of supernatural narrative takes over and it seems that women artists were better suited to express this new ballet form. What can you tell us about the life of a professional ballerina in the early years of the art forum in the Nineteenth Century? What was her place in society very different from today. The Ballerina really sat at the bottom of the socio economic scale. If you will. There were a few exceptions in. Even though there was a flourishing in the eighteen thirties and forties where there were certainly respectable stars By and large these women were very marginalized. They were paid very little and as a result they were often exploited. Many of them had to turn to prostitution To survive and we see these beautiful pictures by got today showing what seems like an idealized environment but in fact often in the back. You'll see men lurking. They were known as the abomination repower men of the Jockey Club and they regularly exploited these young women so many of them had very sad stories even though they were quite accomplished artists and speaking of data. I think there's even a little back story to his very famous sculpture of the fourteen year. Old Dancer Right. That's right that famous. Bronze sculpture is of a young girl She was part of a family where I think her sister was. Also a dancer but sadly she was likely a victim of the circumstances at the time where she hardly made any money to survive. Many of the dancers were hungry. They were physically exerting themselves and this young lady did fall into prostitution as well and probably died a very sad life so yeah it's horrible to think of and so different from the way we view dancers today right and it really is a fact that the majority of ballerinas then and now will never make it to star status. That's right or or you know prima which was a term. That's kind of more favorite in the past right. Today's top dancers are really generally called principal dancers. If I'm correct right why this shift and terminology from Ballerina to Principal Dancer. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that ballet culture came up in Great Britain and especially the United States and we view ourselves as a bit more democratic so the idea of the Ballerina which was a term given to very very few female dancers. You really had to be at the apex at one point in the late nineteenth century in Russia and said there were only six ballerinas in all of Russia was extraordinary So you can see how limited the term was bandied about then but today we view of the hierarchy of the principal soloist in the quarter ballet member but I think it erases the difference between male versus female and one that really I think asserts a sense of achieving it not so much through social connections or through whims but really through technical as well as artistic merit so. This is one of the reasons we see that change in France. They still use the word. A twelve or star to designate the very top rank. Oh Nice Yeah. I'd like to turn our attention to one of the all time greats who we were just talking about Before we started recording Marie Tahiliani And she really rose to international claim in the early nineteenth century. I'm hoping you could tell us a little bit about her. And also her innovations which helped to shape the future trajectory of ballet as an art form. That's right I think Marie Tagliani was important to very significant ways. One was the art form itself. He was not considered a beautiful woman and had certain physical flaws. Someone told me that. She was slightly hunchback and her father who was a brilliant choreographer was able to create dance. Movements that did not distract from that in fact Really enhanced her physical illness She was very hard working and she was a pioneer of the idea of going up on point sort of Now we think of it is absolutely essential in classical ballet for a female dancer but it was very rare when she started and I think the other thing that she did was to raise the respectability of the Ballerina. She was very careful in the way she cost him herself. She was discreet. Show is where pearls she had. A Floral Diadem And the other thing is that she acted very lady like off stage and she made sure her physical depictions whether in costume more in high fashion. We're always done in a very respectable way so she was able to do something. Many other ballerinas could not do which was Garner female audience. Even the young Princess Victoria was a huge fan of hers and so if members of the royal family could embrace. It was considered acceptable. So she was a breakaway star but unusual in that way and and correct me. If I'm wrong queen perhaps named one of her horses Tahiliani. He did tell Yoni was one of her race horses and also there was a stagecoach that ran between cities that was called the Tagliani fabrics after her famous role muscle feed many different types. Candies were named after her and the Russians were especially enamored. There were some bellum who made a soup out of her shoes needed hotel. Yoni mania swept through Europe and the eighteen thirties forties talk about being a mythic. Yes exactly Speaking of iconic elements of ballet. I would be very very surprised if there's a single one of our listeners out there who is not familiar with the garment which is of course. Queen essentially synonymous with ballet and I am of course talking about the two one thing that I was taken a bit backed by. When I was reading the exhibition catalogue was the somewhat body origins of this term. So how did this term to come about an aunt at its most basic? What is a two two while the two two is just the Ballerina skirt? It's costume and when it was invented in the eighteen thirties It was a word that came from. Rather if you will of course background it's a slang or play on the word. Kuku which itself is slang for the petite call. Which is your behind. Basically ballet audiences were different in the way they were positioned back in those days. The people who were members of the aristocracy or had money were always in what they called the box seats or the rings that were on the upper tiers of the Opera House and it was down in the orchestra seats where the more working class people sat and they could sometimes get a glimpse of the Valarie Yes that they were diaphanous garments and so sometimes depending on how she twirled or whatnot it you could get a look up them and they were also bit dangerous they were often starched ahead sizing in them which made them flammable and with the open gas lights. Some of the Ballerina skirts caught on fire and sadly a number of stars did die that
The First Milestone In The History of Economics
"You ever wonder we're economics.

Hess Yod and and it wasn't anything like the more famous ancient Greek poems from that time like the Iliad or Odyssey poems about war and conquest Trojan horses and revenge. And seafaring thing. Yeah Hennessy. It's works in days was a different kind of poem. Here's how Stephen Matama. Historian of economic thought. Duke University describes it. It's not an epic tale.

No he invoked the mears's ears use and then wrote a long poem about the virtues of hard work as my second shaming Percy's and those corrupt local officials. That's right a Greek Greek poet telling his brother to stop being so lazy. freeloader is the first ever milestone in the history of economics the very first place where the kind of analytical reasoning reasoning used in economics is found. Stephen says what he's trying to do in part at least is explained to his brother. Y work work rather than a life of idleness is the appropriate way to live in the world. That we've been left in Stephen Just wrote a new book called the economics. gimmicks book from xenophon Decrypt Currency Two hundred fifty milestones in the history of economics.
