"Like I always say, people are as sick as their secrets. And finally, I want to tell you a quick story about something we do on the Patreon show called FIA, B stories. I've encouraged my listeners to send me their brushes with celebrities. Whether they're good, bad or indifferent, I want to hear them all because sometimes it knocks lose some memory from the cobwebs of my mind. And today's story, you can only do this if you're a patron, and by doing that, you've got to go to Patreon dot com slash fame is a bitch. You get some breaking stories exclusive stories like last, two days ago, I broke the story that Tatum O'Neil had tried to commit suicide. The entire media in the country did not cover that story. Only I had it. And I go into great detail about what happened and why she did it in blah, blah, blah. But Patreon is where it's at when you want to get more exclusive, breaking news, and more of my personal stories about my life and my relationships with celebrities, et cetera. I think you should do it. It's literally less than a gallon of gas. And you get 5 shows a week. Anyhow, Steve McMahon writes to me this story took place in the mid 90s and lower bucks county Pennsylvania. I was working my regular Friday night shift. As a waiter at a local rib joint, in the middle of a Friday night rush, one of the waitresses said, I think I have Michael Douglas the actor at my table. I said, yeah, right. So I walked through the dining room to see if myself in very was. It was the Michael Douglas sitting in a four top with another unassuming couple eating his ribs and involved in dinner conversation. Even though this was in the days way before the incident and texting, the restaurant quickly started filling with gawkers and onlookers, some unashamedly approaching the table and asking for autographs. He politely told people that after dinner, he was going to hang out at the bar and he'd be happy to start autographs there. And he eventually did saunter over to the bar, by himself, sat down and ordered the first of many middle light drafts with his pack of Marlboro lights and a wider close by. Now the next two hours, he engaged in idle shadow with all the locals talking, answering questions about his movies, et cetera. Definitely soaking up the attention. And by now the bar was packed to capacity, and I thought it was strange that many people just stood there and stared at him like he was an animal with the zoo. He did mention that he was staying in a local Sheridan hotel because he was visiting his son who attended George school a nearby Quaker academy for kids of affluent parents. And at the end of a couple hours, many autographs and lots of conversations he politely said, goodbye to everybody. My manager didn't charge him for anything at the bar. And he left me a very modest tip. But overall, very nice guy and left us all in disbelief for many days wondering if that really happened. You know, it's funny. I see that a lot of Los Angeles. Actors and actresses and bars, big time celebrities at restaurants. And people don't tend to bother them..

"You don't have to work harder because you're an actress. You just have to be good. And Neve Campbell proved herself to be good, saying you have to work harder to be an actress as bullshit. It's bullshit. You may argue that you don't get paid as much as men do. And in a seemingly similar role, that's a valid point. But to say it's hard, harder to be an actress. No, no, it's not. It's not. So she said, I worked extremely hard for my career to establish my value, especially when it comes to screen, and I felt the offer that was presented to me did not equate to the value I've brought to the franchise. It's been a very difficult decision to move on to all my screen fans. I love you. You've always been so incredibly supportive to me. I'm forever grateful to you and what this franchise has given me the past 25 years. Now, I'm shocked for a number of reasons. Number one, I had no idea there were 5 scream movies before this one. Let alone a 6th film coming up. I had no idea. And I'm shocked. She would turn this down. Now I know she's making money on the Netflix series, the Lincoln lawyer so she can do whatever the hell she wants right now. Don't feel sorry for her. She was off and over a $1 million for this film and she chose to say no. In these days, where people can't get baby formula. And gas is approaching $10 a gallon. I can't feel sorry for anybody turning down that kind of money, can you? I know she means a lot to the franchise, and maybe, you know, they use her name to promote the next sequel before showing her what they intended to pay her. And of course, these studios can always afford to pay actors and actresses more. They can offer you back end, but it's still a million bucks. She should blame her agent for not getting it back then after stream two or three..

"But that's something none of us even thought about. One of my listeners, I think it was Jaden Rivera. I hope I'm not wrong. I think Jaden Rivera said this, I might be wrong. I posted a picture of this queer leader, he said, AJ, the same woke media hacks that are hopping on this bandwagon, did everything in their power to ensure that Donald Trump's First Lady never made the cover of any fashion magazines or appear in such publications, even though she could have done so by her own merits had she not been First Lady. Of course we know you're right. Welch's spoon feeding the masses with their twisted and unpopular agenda and thankfully it appears to be failing miserably and the pushback begins and is right. The pendulum is swinging back. I've been saying that for the last few weeks and stories like this pop up and it makes you wonder, but the pendulum's coming back. Johnny Depp was a big victory. There's a lot of things that have been happening that have been big victories. Netflix, Ted sarandos telling people to work there. If you don't like it, you're fucking Dave Chappelle's specials not coming down. Elon Musk telling Twitter employees most for yourself, get back to the office 40 hours a week minimum. That's the good news. And then Jaden, I think it was Jaden shifted back to my picture of Lena Dunham looking morbidly obese in the shit Brown bikini. And he said she should go back to the hall where she's been staying after her HBO show went away. He also suggested that the trans cheerleader should be forced to wear an ultra manga hat and a John Deere shirt. Well, that'd be great, but too many people on the left would have a stroke. And I normally don't do this. But I want to add on to something I spoke about yesterday about the differences of the sexes. There was a story, you know, I said that when I was a kid, maybe 11, 12, my mother used to babies in a little girl named Yale at home who was four years younger than I was, and she was a lot of fun to be around. And a lot of sometimes I'd say I'm from school. I pretend I was 6, just so I could be with Yale. And my mother got used to it after a while. She was like, no, you're going to school. And then she's like, you know what? He never had a little sister. She let me stay home once in a while to hang out with Gail. And we played silly games. We played with her dolls. She played with my army men. I taught her how to play football. You know, we just, we played color forms, remember color forms. We did all sorts of things that nowadays, if a little boy is seen doing, you go, sign him up for some trans courses. He's gay. He's queer. He's not a boy. He's a little girl, and a pair of Carpenter pants. Whatever it was. Same thing applies to her. She'd be called a Dyke. Oh, she's ready for the top surgery. Bottom surgery, the whole thing. There are some masculine little girls and some feminine little boys, and that doesn't automatically make them candidates for hormone blockers or bottom and top surgery. So they can put up a poster of Elliot Page on that wall in genuflect at night. So Jayden wrote, my mom told me a story the other day that is totally apropos of the times we're living in. And I'm including this because it really is so indicative of how different things are now..

"They want, it's time for all of us to do the work to empathize with the sites sounds and smells and door by every member of our large and beautiful gender community, including those with distinct transitioning odors. Apparently this is based on I'm going to get scientific now. It's based on the gram stain, the majority of smears revealed that mixed microflora that had some similarity with bacterial vaginosis. Microflora and that contained various amounts of cokie coach Coke I CO CCI, polymorphous gram negative and gram positive rods, often with, it smells like shit. To the social taboo around these discussions of what it smells like, it's already been going on and people are talking about it, not in your house, but other houses, so you ladies have to know that there are people out there who really have some work to do. One lady said, one night I was going to go down on her, just that sentence on. One night I was going to go down on her. So she watched her bits before she came in the bedroom, and she laid on my bed. I was in few inches away from her face. Well, I know it's the foul smell. I can best describe as stale urine. Cheesy. And a bit like feces. Oh, yeah. Great. I've heard of post-op male to female smells. But I've read most people saying that they'd go away quickly after transition. Anyhow, I backed away because I was so put off by that smell. She kept asking what's wrong and I finally broke down and told her what's wrong. She was so confused and kept smelling herself saying she didn't smell anything. Could you imagine this? She said she just washed it too. It's been a fight between me and her and she's self conscious about it. I asked if it could be an infection or her hygiene habits, her lifestyle or diet because I know those things can affect the smell of the vagina..

"All right, gang. Our numbers are way up, way up. We've never been bigger before. We're a global brand and we're printing money as we speak. In fact, as long as it took me to say those last few sentences, the NFL made $50 million. But what can we do to get even bigger? Anybody? Anybody, ideas? Yes, you and the back the new guy in the back. What do you got? I need to get this now. Well, don't be bashful. Any ideas a good idea? Well, I was thinking, you know, the Dallas cowboy cheerleaders were huge in the 70s and then they continue to be a big deal. I'm listening. Well, I think we can really make them relevant again and generate some income. Good. I like it. What are you thinking? Smaller shorts, tighter tops, more nipples. What do you got? Well, what if we had men cheered too? How's that? You know, men, men who have transitioned to women. If they were to cheer alongside the other women, are you telling me these men would be men with Cox? Well, in some instances, yes, but they'd be called women. Okay, no, anybody else, and by the way, you're fucking fired. But you know, that would be a whole different conversation. Nowadays, in fact, it would be the owner could be fired, not the employee. And you want to tell me America is a better country right now. Did you see the video of that nightclub in Dallas that had kids stuffing dollar bills into the shorts of drag queens? All this to celebrate Pride Month? I mean, did you see the videos? There's a few children you can see with adult guardians at this club while drag queen is dancing to some Ariana Grande song. And the event was held at the mister mister club and mister with two S's you get it Miz to see the springs Texas and the event was called drag your kids to pride, let the dragon fucking parents to a Lake and drown them. And it was advertised as family friendly. So it's a nice thing that you can't stuff a dollar into Penelope kumquats. I don't know what their names are, but you get the point. This is a weekly drag queen brunch event. And there was a neon sign behind the dancers that said, it's not gonna lick itself. You wanna take your 5 and 6 and 7 year old. You wanna take your 15 year old to that. Of course, there were protesters outside with signs that said stop grooming the kids. There were cops there too. But the cops were inside the bar, making sure no one didn't anything bad inside the venue. Can you understand this? Hey, Texas, what the fuck y'all doing? What are y'all doing? You just had 19 kids slaughtered and you've all day, and now this bullshit, you need to demand that your politicians.

AJ Benji here with fame is a bitch. This is your free show for, let's call it wacky Wednesdays. A lot of crazy stuff happening today. Crazy stuff happens all the time on this show. At least I tend to point it out, but this is wacky Wednesday. For June 8th, 2022, and I have to begin with perhaps the wackiest tale of all. I was touching in the background shaking for collar. There's a new cheerleader in the NFL, her name is Justine Lindsay, and she is believed.

"Far as and not and not take a shot. All right, well, if the Hank Aaron rookie NFT comes up, I'm gonna give you a call. Maybe we'll have a better chance at that one. Okay, I'll root for it. So you and Steve, you swung and you missed. Yeah. Big time. We were not the winners of the auction. Our max bit of $60,000 that fell well short of the nearly half $1 million winning bid. And I don't know. Maybe we should have known that we didn't have a real shot at it, but there was this period of time for like 30 seconds with 45 minutes left where we can say we were actually the high bidders. Yeah, hey, that's kind of cool. You were part of this historic day if nothing else. It like Steve said, at least you tried, right? So who actually won the auction? That's actually a really good question. In the weeks after the auction ended, I actually got to catch up with Tobin lent. Now Tobin is the vice president and global general manager of digital for the Topps company. He's basically the architect behind this entire project. And not even Tobin knew who the real winner was quite yet. We don't know who it is. We know the wallet, which consisted of a name with numbers and letters. But we never found the person. We actually found the runner up on Twitter. She was using an actual name or could be he who knows. And we actually converse. We are rooting for that. We were rooting for both people. It was kind of fun when we got down to those last two bidders and they were trying to outdo each other. You could actually check to see how much eth they had in their wallet. Oh my gosh, they're up against their limit already. It was exciting. I think that if we do this again, we're going to do some kind of a play by play, because it was a lot of fun. We had a blast. We were all together on a Zoom call, kind of watching this unfold. And it was an exciting event really. But yeah, we don't know who that person is. They bought it and moved it to another wallet. And it's been silenced since that. That's wild. You lost out to a mystery bidder of sorts, I guess. But hey, you got to talk with Tobin. That's great. What else did he say? Yeah, yeah, it was actually very cool catching up at Tobin. He had a lot more context about the project. In fact, here he is talking about some of the background work that they had to do in the lead up to the auction. Yeah, we had a lot to figure out. You know, one of the things we had to figure out is what exactly we were going to do. I mean, we could have gone for.

"Future. That's the number four cards for the future. But his collection today, I mean, it's hard to say exactly what it be worth because, you know, these things go up and down too, just like stock and crypto, but it might have crossed the 7 figure range at this point. Wow, that's wild. Yeah, yeah, now just before the tops Mickey Mantle NFT auction open sea. I mean, like literally a day before the auction ended, Steve came over to my house to hang out for a bit. And he brought some of his cards with him. So I see a card over there. I see Mickey Mantle autograph. Is that legit? Yep. I got Mickey Mantle. So this is probably one of the first triple autos back in 1992 score came out with Stan Musial, Mickey Mantle, and Carly just scram ski, probably three of the greatest hitters of all time. The fact that this came in a pack from 1992 is just mind-blowing to me. This is like 1992 score. All right, I'm not a giant collector now, but I was not a big deal back then. Like 92 score was not loaded with amazing cards, right? No, I can't even think of who are the key rookies in 92. I don't even know. 1990 would you, Thomas, 92? I can't think of one. I can't. Probably a quarter of a pack, probably one in a bajillion packs. I don't even know. I don't even think they list the odds for something like this. It is serial numbered. There's only 500 that exist. So it is something I always wanted as a kid, actually, and just got it recently. All right, that sounds like a really cool car. Mickey Mantle, Stan Musial, Carl Easter and ski, and it's signed by all three. Yeah, and it's a card that Steve always wanted as a kid. And now he's got one. And I can relate to that feeling of always wanting a certain card as a kid and sort of dreaming about it. Actually, Steve sort of got me back into collecting like a year ago and I am nowhere close to the level of a collector that Steve is, but he gave me some guidance and acquiring a few cards that I always wanted, including my first ever Babe Ruth training card. It's a 1933 gooty Babe Ruth that I always wanted it as a kid and now I have it. Really, I never realized you had a Babe Ruth card. That's pretty awesome. Yeah, yeah, I am pretty pumped having it. But that Mickey Mantle card that Steve had. It wasn't even the most impressive card, believe it or not. He brought over to my house, his Holy Grail card, so to speak. And actually, he has doubles. Probably my Holy Grail and it's probably one that's getting a lot of attention lately is Tom Brady, of course he's getting a lot of attention in the news. Obviously being back from retirement lasted a total of 40 days. Something like that. He is, I got in my hand from 2002, his tops, Super Bowl. It's from his first Super Bowl. It's a piece of the game used ball. And then it's autographed and it's actually hand numbered out of one 50. And this game actually out of a tops pack, believe it or not. That's great. So do I remember it? You have, you've got doubles of that card. I do have two of it. I have both of them that I was pretty particular on the logos. So this one actually has writing on it. The other one actually has a piece of the Wilson ball. Where he would actually grip weird grip at. So kind of a nice little memento I'd say. Since you got doubles, you could just give one to me, right? Sure, just transfer a lot of money and I'll be all right with that. Transfer over a lot of money, how much money would you need to transfer over for one of those Tom Brady's? Well, okay, one of the cards that Steve has is in better condition and is more desirable than the other, but Michael, the better of the two, if he sold it at auction today, it would probably go for hundreds of thousands of dollars. He's already had offers well into 6 figures from private collectors. It's a card that could very well be worth over a $1 million at some point soon. Tom Brady, really? I don't know. That's wild. Yes, but then I brought up the topic with Steve that was on my mind ever since I knew he was coming over. All right, first, how much do you know about NFTs? Steve's answer to that question and more on this entire Mickey Mantle NFT saga after a short break. You made it. Checked out of office to check into the sweet views of this place where the kids aren't asking for the Wi-Fi. Mom, can we go to the pool? And when you're with AmEx, it's not if it's going to happen.

And I'm gonna play the conversation that we had after I asked that question. See, I had mics set up during Steve's visit because I knew we were working on this season all about web three and I had a feeling that this conversation, I don't know, maybe we turn it into a part of an episode or multiple episodes or I don't know, I had no idea. I just knew there might be something there. And sure enough, here we are. With the rest of the story. All right, well, back to your question with Steve, you asked him how much he knew about NFTs and his answer was. Absolutely not. I mean, I'm trying to learn about him. I'd say I know a little bit. All right, so this is what I wanted to talk to you about. You know, aside from hanging out and getting to see your collection. So tops, which actually that Tom Brady card you had, that was from tops, you know, top is one of the most iconic sports card brands. They just launched a new NFT project with Mickey Mantle, or at least the mantle family. Had you heard anything about that yet? I heard a little bit. I don't, I don't know what I think about it yet. I will say, though, I mean, if it's coming from tops and one of the most iconic cards that anybody could recognize that card, I'm truly interested.

"To let that slide. I talked to UC Berkeley professor Robert murgos, who was saying that he doesn't think that the expiration of the copyright would make much difference and he believes that what the Republicans are doing is pretty much just a political ploy to make points with their voting base. I'm sure also that Disney has been getting ready for this day ever since they were able to get that extension 25 years ago as well. Did they do anything with Mickey Mouse like incorporate him into some other things who just even have more legal protection? Yeah, and I didn't know this until I spoke to a professor at pepperdine who said she noticed that at the beginning of the new animated movies like tangle and some of the newer ones at the very beginning there's a clip of steamboat Willie, just a very small clip, and she believes that by inserting this into the modern animated movies, they've sort of added the protection by saying, this is now our logo or this is now represents a steamboat Willie is the Disney trademark. And so that, in a sense, can protect Disney from having people use steamboat Willie once the copyright expires. So more legalese, what's the difference between a trademark and a copyright? Again, I'm not an attorney, but you play one on radio. Yeah, I pretend to be one in podcast. But from speaking to academics and lawyers, I learned that a copyright protection is basically saying you can not literally copy this. You can not put Mickey Mouse with this particular face and shape and call it Mickey on your products. It trademark is more of like a logo or a slogan or something that represents the company like Chevrolet Ford or any of those logos. Those are trademarks that represent the company. So if you were to put Mickey Mouse on a backpack or a tennis shoes or whatever, people would get the impression that that's a Disney product. And if that were the case, then you would be violating trademark. So that's one way that Disney could say, yeah, we don't have copyright on Mickey anymore, but that's basically our logo. That's our trademark. And you're giving the impression that that's a Disney product or Disney service. And you can't do that. So you mean those coin banks that I buy down at Tijuana with Mickey. That's not a Disney product. That's not a Disney product, yeah. And they may be violating trademark by making those coin banks. Uh oh. Okay, let's just say Disney's copyright on Mickey Mouse does expire. And Mickey goes into the public domain, then what? Well, then conceivably, any company could put out products with that particular image, Mickey from steamboat Willie. And if Disney does nothing, then that's what happens. But most likely Disney will come back at those people and say, you're violating trademark protection, cease and desist. And if you don't, you could get fined heavily. And then finally Google, how do the Disney fans feel, you know? So much of fandom nowadays is fan fiction. People create characters or whatnot. Obviously, Disney fans haven't been able to make that because of all these infringements. Do they want Mickey to be freed from his copyright jail? You know, they love Mickey and I think that you get people on both sides. There's some adamant defenders of Disney and everything Disney does. And they would not want to see other companies making Mickey Mouse cartoons or Mickey Mouse anything. They would feel like, oh, that sort of diminishes the image and the story. And then there's others, like you say, who would love to see other people take Mickey and do different things with him, put them in different adventures, new cartoons, new animations. So it's all over the place. And we're going to have to see what happens in 2024. If it does expire,.
Disney's Wokeness Costs Them Special Tax Status
"Here's something that'll make you smile if you've been keeping track of this. Just another enormous feather in the Ron DeSantis cap, a major victory, the Florida Senate has passed that bill to abolish what is called the reedy creed improvement district that sounds like just some tiny little local zoning issue, but it is the massive status involving a certain amount of tax avoidance attack a huge tax break for Disney that under desantis and now with the help of the legislature, a Disney is simply not going to enjoy that status. It appears anymore. Awe. Mickey is crestfallen, I'm sure. Walt is spinning in his grave at what the company that bears his name has become a woke, steaming nightmare.
Ron DeSantis Proposes Dissolving Special Tax Status for Disney World
"So Ron DeSantis, as if he doesn't have enough on his plate, is now announced that the state legislature will consider a proposal to eliminate Disney's special tax and governing jurisdiction in desantis fight against the mega corporation's woke politics, quote I'm announcing today that we are expanding the call of what they are going to be considering this week. And so yes, they will be considering termination of all special districts that were enacted in Florida prior to 1968. And that includes the reedy creek improvement district. Now the reedy creek improvement district is one of Disney's special carve outs. It's a special governing and special taxing district for the Walt Disney World resort. In 1967, the Florida legislature approved it to boost economic development and tourism within the district's boundaries. This includes 25,000 acres. Eliminating the special district would be served as a significant economic blow to the Disney corporation. So they should absolutely do it. If you are going to be financing supporting the grooming of children, then use a corporation should not receive special handouts from the state of Florida. If you're going to be against family values and you're going to make Florida a place where you want to push for this LGBTQ garbage, we're going to raise your taxes or at the very least, we're not going to give you special cargo. So you never should have gotten in the first place. This is the latest flight breitbart dot com writes after Disney announced its opposition to the parental rights and education bill that he signed into law. This is the proclamation. On this first day of the redistricting special session, the governor added this. Should lawmakers and special independent special districts established in 1968, he announced it at the villages that has similar self governing districts, though post 1968. Republicans have considered other measures to fight back against Disney's alphabet mafia agenda, including ending Disney $600 million tax cheat loophole. Jim banks from Indiana, who is the Republican study committee chairman, has floated to do revolver news idea, which is to end congressional loopholes for the Mickey Mouse

The Truth About COVID Vaccines with Dr. Judy Mikovitz
"The earlier part, I want to make sure our audience understands it. So even though if it's a series of viruses introduced by the flu vaccine, has there been research done to actually be able to find the markers of what this is? It's not just the flu vaccine. It's literally every vaccine and see no, I know, but it all seemed to culminate within one year. But then you say it's because of the masking and the fear and the immunosuppression. And the culmination is kill the most vulnerable. Who's being injected? It's a medical racism. Children are getting injected. But the elderly. They're very people with the disease. Again, you've got an emergency use, and the reason I mentioned Ebola is because Doctor John, who is the head of that team of Christians and is from where I'm from and to her, California and leading the healthcare system there. He did two things when he suspected the doctor got infected. And that it was actually contagious Ebola that Tony Fauci and company had been created. So they sent contagious Ebola. What did he give him? He gave him hydroxychloroquine. And saline, a quiet room, prayed for him, prayed for him. The book, the day, sorry, the book called for life by Kent and amber Brantley. That's the Doctor Who got sick. And so we remember the cover up is Tony Fauci and Obama in a plane went to the CDC. This was just when senator posey, I believe a Florida was going to bring to Congress to the Senate and unveil the thousands of pages of documents of the crimes committed in these vaccine programs in the tens of millions of people murdered and injured around the world starting with 8. And that's what the movie plandemic is about. Plandemic shows you the history, and that's why Mickey Willis can elevate films. They called it plandemic and I called it a plandemic because we've witnessed this since HIV aids, where gain of function studies were done to make a virus more deadly and then develop

And you know it's so much fun about this is that Eric isn't here, so we can talk about him. And I think that, you know, that would be just an entirely fun hour to just talk about everything Eric. And I am actually in the Italian Riviera, but the Disney World version of that. And I have to tell you one of my favorite stories about Eric really quick because oh yeah, totally. Ish. Yeah, so we were at a conference in Orlando last year and maybe it was earlier this year. I don't even remember. You know, the time this year is flown by so fast. But we were at a conference speaking together in Orlando. We were meeting some of our good friends from Liberty University, shout out to Brian health and vine. Malachi and some of the guys. And so I'm going out to meet them. And of course we're going to Disney springs to get food because that's like one of the best places in Orlando. So Eric is texting me like, hey, what are you guys doing? We want to get food and I was like, yeah, come downstairs, maybe just in the lobby. He had no idea where we were going. So he comes down to the lobby thinking we're just all like hanging out at the hotel. And I'm like, get in the Uber and he's like, where are we going? So I'm trying to describe to him the amazing magical experience that is Disney springs in this Uber on the way. And he tells this story now where he's like, we went on this death march. It was like 5 miles into the wilderness of this mall. And he just goes on and he's a much better storyteller than me. But the bottom line is I took Eric metaxas to Disney springs. We had a very happy magical time. Did not get a picture with Mickey ears, but that's my goal for next time. And that was one of my favorite stories from America because he talks about hiking through Disney springs with me having no idea where he's going. We had a

Is It Possible to Make a Profit With Campground Investing
"Had their welcome to the show. Thank you so much for joining us today. Thank you. I appreciate you. Having me to get started. Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in real estate investing absolutely so ten years ago i was driving across the country in a camper from florida. California saying in all these different campgrounds house like hey it's just renting parking spots. It's not just writing parking spots. However i started google searching campgrounds for sale campgrounds in my area trying to figure out. Hey is this something i could do. And i found one that was in bankruptcy. I called the bank long story short and bought a campground before. I got california so by the time i was leaving. California to head back to tennessee. I'd bought property. I'd never seen in. I knew nothing about real estate or investing at all ten years later owned about three hundred units and have rv parks mobile home parks and section. Eight multifamily okay. That is insane so you didn't have any real estate background at all and you just jump for it and buyer campground. Yes they might be mildly. Impulsive okay. i want to start with that. So how did you even analyze the deal. How did you find it. What did that look like before we answer that question. I guess had you had any real estate investing experience before that i was at the very first for rain real estate. Investing you'd ever done literally there. I didn't even know an rv. Park was real estate or didn't know what the word analyzed meant. It just seemed like a good idea. Okay so yeah. It's tell us from the beginning. So you decide you want to do this. How did you find the power. Cobb did you finance it. What did that. I deal look like yet so i started google searching. Rv parks for sale campgrounds for sale in my area and i found this property that was next to dollywood which is our version at disneyworld. Only we have dolly parton instead of mickey mouse in tennessee which was an hour from where i lived in our tourist towns. I thought how could it go wrong. I mean how could something next to the number one attraction in the area not dwell call the bank and they want three point two million dollars in they. They're like how much money do you have. A twenty six years old Have any money.

Were willing to get rid of them. In a different way than you can buy properties now. So they gave me a non recourse loan in for anybody. That doesn't know what that means would be similar if you bought a house and you didn't pay your mortgage in the bank was going to take that back you file bankruptcy or whatever the repercussions were non-recourse. Means you're going to have any of those repercussions and no money down which you don't hear of now. It was nothing but a huge blessing.

Everybody who moved cowboys and fishermen farmworkers italian grandmothers. This was in the day of cassettes and as we drove around we always talked about how great it would be to document the roads inside roads. We were travelling so people could just pop in a cassette and listen to the people around them as they drove on through. We never quite pulled off that cassette idea on a large scale but when davy moved east for a while we decided to try the idea out on route sixty six. She'd be driving a lot so that was the start. It was the end of the road. It was the last days surf route. Sixty six as we were traveling. I mean just trying to follow it at that. Point was a you know you drive down.

Targeting Cancer Drug Side Effects at Their Source
"We're gonna talk about on quality. The unwanted side effects of chemotherapies targeted cancer therapies and on qualities efforts to address the problem through a pipeline of products to treat these side effects. We see many advances in cancer. Care this is a large and growing market. But as new targeted therapies come to market. How much of a problem is the side effects. That can cause what we've seen the marketing what we talked to kill wells another investigators. Oftentimes they have side effects that are involved with skin. In many cases it could be quite severe and they could really some of the major reasons way we see cancer. Patients have declining quality. Life is because treatment toxicities. Especially as i said. They sometimes manifests in the skin. Which can really be difficult. Mickey hart for patients to even walk to use your hands to what extent to the facts. Disrupt the use of needed therapies or really impact quality of life for patients. If you look at some of the prescribing information for some of the agents. And you'll see that there are warriors precautions for side effects of the skin. In time these are managed by dose reductions are those discontinuations until this toxicities reside which we find is a problem. You know our view in many people will tell you is that there's a very strong correlation between positive outcomes in the billion for patients to maintain dose intensity. This is obviously not a new idea to to treat patients side effects to allow them to continue use of drug or minimize its negative impact. But you're taking a fundamentally different approach than what's been traditionally done before we get into the specific indications. You're pursuing and and your pipeline. Can you explain your approach. In general the way we look at this as we come also from background or drug discovery and cancer in is been a kind of a big focus what we used to call precision. Medicine are targeted therapies in. The idea has been to target these key. Pathways that cause cancer so we can target pathways in that context during a reasonable. We can't target the source of toxicity. So we call the tardif supportive care in. The view is to really target these toxins out their source
"micky" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Folks. Welcome back to your to show. And i'm talking to mickey robinson mickey. You don't hear a lot of stories like this. This is a story falling into heaven is the title of the book skydivers gripping account of heaven healings and miracles. So you have just told us this experience of going as you put it through the second heaven to once you get through that hole into the white you're in the third heaven which is you're in the presence of god You experience these things. And then somehow god tells you you're going back. The knowledge comes higher for communication. Yeah and there is no logic. There's no excuse making you don't try and we just know that you know. And so the same way i try i left. I went through from the third heaven. I don't remember seeing much in the second. But as i came through there's atmosphere i could feel my my spiritual body. Go through the roof of the hospital and my spirit sinking. My flesh should be like. I describe it as as you can imagine if you were wind blowing through like a bushy tree you could feel that much. And then the room materialize laying on my back. I could see how this was blind in this eye and leg materializing like they do on star trek when they be back up to here out these ears and out of my mouth. I'm worshipping god in his in his language. I never heard. I never heard of this stuff. I'm laying there and all of a sudden have the ability to perceive. exactly what's going to five or six looking at me. I deserve exactly. These people were terrified. They were scared to death of what they were watching. And i felt bad that they felt bad. Because now i'm a different person and there's nothing that has changed in me physically. I'm still deadly. i'm still. There's no hope i've lost everything but i was full of a love. That's unbelievable the love. That i saw it wasn't the memory of it isn't a tingling of it. It's the presence of god himself and that river that i was standing in was now inside me. Not none of this is up here. it's all in here. And i love everything and these people. They're still waiting for me to die that day the next day after that still critical i had all these complications. They weren't trying to save my life really waiting for the mercy of death to take but there started to be a trickle of healing. Now some of the things that were wrong that was blind in the side but below my knees. The both legs were paralyzed. I'd lost all that weight. I had infection after. I survived a couple of months in intensive care. Looked like i was gonna be live. That was never going to walk again. Still i still close to death. I wanna i wanna go back to what you described returning from the third heaven through the second heaven. The first heaven is what outerspace says beginning. Got the heavens and the earth heavens are plural. I think it's the sky. I actually think it's all the physical universe that's my opinion. It's certainly is referred to as the heavens but what's interesting to me is we always talk about heaven as being outside of the physical universe but clearly god uses the imagery of a sending jesus ascends. There's something interesting in a reason. People say heaven is up there even though on some level it's not up there it's everywhere the kingdom of heaven is within you in other words it's right near us but it's another dimension but god always seems to use altitude to convey that so the idea that you're coming into the earth's atmosphere and then down down through the roof of the hospital you don't come through the floor if you don't come to the wall you come through the roof. Yeah i mean. I guess i just always wanna know why it's so fascinating to me the idea that you're coming down into the hospital. We don't know let me say yes. I never heard of this stuff. Ever but the first spiritual conscious i can remember. It was maybe it was before this happened but in the hospital and my sister's father was a really big surgery. Just come back from doing volunteer. Work in vietnam and care civilians all day. Twelve hours a day so he came to and we were friends apart from relationship with my my sister and examine me and check me out and he told him i was going to die until my family but he was walking out and fun even a little hat on the little hat people and i was going along with them and we're why he wasn't even looking at me talking to me and he stepped on a little rubber thing that opens a door automatic door and the door went right through me so my spirit left my body. You mean your spirit left of your body and you happen to be standing behind him in your spirit was going drifting along with him and he didn't and as soon as that happened that was recalled back another thing that happened was visited my girlfriend's front yard what to where i worked. And you mean you're in the hospital bed. Yes four heavenly encounter before you have the heavenly encounter. you had spiritual experiences before that. I think i was so close to death. My spirit was was in and out of my body sometimes and i went. I went to somewhere familiar. Like i went to where i worked and everything was happening and when i thought about it it would recoil the moment. You realize wait a minute. What am i doing. Anything unusual. Like i was back. I was the of my girlfriends and everybody was in these car tables and they were all sad when we plan their twenty fifth wedding anniversary. My girlfriend so they actually had it but nobody was happy because they knew you were dying. Yeah okay. I don't even talk about that. Usually thought i love touched on these things so miserable stuff. I wanna to store. This people are dying to know. What is it like to die. What is it like to experience these things. What is the nature of this reality. We pretend is not reality. She in western culture course. Now i'll just say this concerning there's only two possibilities there is an afterlife or an eternal endless state of nothingness that's all there is the latter part usually leads to agnostic atheism. Th there's no you might as well impulses if there's no resurrection you might as well party. So i'm convinced. But in the greek he doesn't say party. Yeah defer to the greek scholars. At any rate there is an afterlife but where it's like space. Captain kirk is not the final frontier attorneys the final frontier. And get there whether you believe it or not whether you're in a coma or whether you're oh you're going there you don't need to believe in it because you're going there anyway whether you believe it or not. We're gonna break talking. To mickey robinson mickey with an m. i c. k. e. y. Falling into heaven is the book were discussing Wants those away..

"I understand intellectually. But i'm saying the idea that you felt this that you apprehended this without even really having the theology you just knew in your it's spirit and the third thing there's the most dramatic is the undiluted perfect love of god perfect love. It's it's other worldly. And now the things i saw there i didn't see any. You know beings that incentive fat babies with diapers playing guitar saint peter checking. Id's but everything that was was like translucent glass but it had colors in it and you could see through it now. What do you mean when you say you go through this portable portal and you're in god's presence and you didn't see god but his presence for the left and there was the substance that was going through me between my waist and we're my knees would be little. Golden speckles. vibrating is the river of life. Everything that river touches is completely alive and complicity. You've felt yourself standing up to your waist in the river of lives like below. My way should be in my knees. It was going through me. And i was just vibrating in that dimension but the perfect love of god is unbelievable. So these things i was seeing all this stuff is alive and all of it worships got. That's i can say the words. I can put it but isn't that interesting. 'cause it takes no cognitive initiation it's automatic. You just know you just respond to this love with love and with this incredible vibration of of holy intention. I mean it's no guilt awareness. And then i saw an open vision eclipsed in the future about six quarter years now calculate saw the whole thing. I saw my wife five years before we ever met so the first house. We're going to have this little college town in ohio. I i have my arm on a rusty gate. And i'm looking out this beautiful castro thing and i turned my head pretty blonde persona walking towards me if my wife barbara five years before we met and six years before that property i saw some other things in the earth that were not so good things but i was viewing them and some of the things that were personal it was drawn into the matrix said this vision and the real lasting i saw. I saw a group of people on this little mountaintop in look like a real lush tropical place and you hear this person talking and i was zoomed in like this. It was me and i was saying this is paradise and then i came back in the presence of god and the lord revealed to me. I knew that there is no paradise on earth and so this was a place that barbara's almost we're gonna move to in the caribbean and when that happened six years later i said no are you. You knew because of vision that this was not re impacted it. When the time came for that actually occur right. It came to me so you saw the future in this moment. of course when you're in the people understand eternity is not a long time. Eternity is outside of times which is another so you're able to see the past the future the brits but how when you said you looked down and you saw some things on earth that were not good. Can you share that. I saw that like like the woodstock. Type stuff i saw music. I saw troubled people. I saw people reaching trying to search and some of was more of an observer. And some of it. I was drawn into the matrix because that was a participant in some of those things. Like how long did this experience seem to last while you're there i mean you can't say it's a million years it doesn't matter you know but just calculate now because of the time that's elapsed right. It was about six years. Yeah and then that was in the presence of god and the lord. He spoke not like in this language but the spirit. The knowledge came into me. I was going back to earth. I promise you. I do not want to come here. I didn't want everybody says that right that. When you're there you go back well. I can't believe anybody would make a choice. Some people say they make a choice. Now i will say this. I think there's an again have to fact myself. There's some two hundred fifty thousand people that have had a near death experience in the states. Yeah not all of them experienced got. Ill change your life on who you are. It will change your life. Some people have gone into what. I is what i saw. It was his dark and saw. That was the second heaven now. Calculate that i wanna. I wanna put a pin in it as they say in show business. We'll be right back. i'm talking to mickey robinson. The book.

My partner was getting out of the play of the baggage door that we open. I mean it is a little miraculous than anybody survived. Yeah did you all survive. The pilot was burned alive. So i was stuck something had holding me. I was trying to escape through this whole that was in side of the plane. I was with my hand at something. Had a hold of me and i was soaked with fuel and on fire from head to toe. You are soaked with fuel and on fire from head to tell the fuels held in rubber bladders on either side of the wing and we. Empty the left wing. So we'd be a little lighter. This was full of fuel. Just got in there somehow. It exploded when my partner got out here. Screaming and ranting grabbed me and i was just soap to fuel and burning alive then what happened enrolled me on the ground to fire out and get out of the way i took a couple of steps fell over backwards and i hit the ground israel fuzzy. I don't remember the actual fire. Remember pain not that no no it was. I don't know why i just don't maybe it's amnesia.

But the good news is my guest will be playing himself. His name is mickey robinson. Mickey i don't know where to begin so let me just say hello. Welcome to the program so good to be here. Good to see you again It's great to see you and your story is one of the most amazing stories. I've heard so. I'm going to force you to tell it again because i know that there are many people that are tuned in your story and when i heard your story i just thought this is one of those stories so let me say you have a new book out called supernatural courage. Activating spiritual bravery to win. Today's battle mickey robinson. But your first book. The way i got to know you is called falling into heaven a skydivers gripping account of heaven healings and miracles. Great title falling into heaven Let's start there because you were kind of a different person when you were a teenager. Wouldn't you say yeah. It was hot stuff. I thought you were hot stuff. How where did you grow up group suburb. Round cleveland ohio. I went went to eight years of pro school to high school. And this was you know the mid sixties and the american dream for kid like me seemed to be accessible for anybody that any kind of tolerability. And and as as i progress more i began to react to the media culture. Whatever you know be somebody do. That was really good at sports. Could be in the in crowd but we grew up in. I went to high school in a small school was really good. I was good at all kinds of sports play. Football since as low kid was snow. Ski ear Swim team. I did gymnastics on my own. Evidently had a talent. So you were tremendously gifted at and at Did you say that you went into finance. i'm trying to remember eighteen. I i started working stockbrokerage from having no experience at all. I just kind of looked like i talked my way into it. And then he promoted me. And i was buying and selling other people's stocks millions dollars a day so it was feeling pretty good and my ego was blowing up like the goodyear blimp and i mean i felt. It seemed to match what i like to do. But you know there's never enough in this life to stimulate if you're looking for stimulation and so i liked a lot of things. I was always fascinated with aviation start flying airplanes and i found it. It's really cool to wait. Wait wait you. How old were you when you started flying airplanes because about eighteen. And how did that happen. There was a little ad you could. You could do a practice ride for five dollars a little airport little commercial airport in the area. And i did that and then i found out about skydiving and i became totally into it. After one jump. I became pretty much a skydiving crackhead and after twenty jumps which is short period of time. I was asked to be unprofessional. Demonstration team which is far as i know that never happened after twenty jumps okay. So you're really into this now. I just have to i always. I remember the first time i interviewed. I remember you get the picture of like you were hotshot. You're super talented. Everything's going great. You don't know what i'm you know. I've met people like this over the years and they always scare me a little bit because you can see it. It's not going to end well. Not that they're going to get into a horrible accident like you. did you just feel like. They're they're insatiable they just want energy and excitement and you and it's all coming to them and every and so for you. It was skydiving here. You're nineteen years old. And suddenly. I mean even in that you rock it up and finance rocket it up in skydiving. They ask you after twenty jumps to be an amazing well. It's the thing about. It is first of all i might look good at. I might felt good. But i was missing. The most important thing didn't know what that was. And when you're when you're at search for anything when you get somewhere you think you got it but there's always more for this for me. Free fall is really where it's at that when you jump out of the plane and you earn free fall and before you open your parachute you feel like you're flying and it really is okay. So that's that's what was the most exhilarating parlier drifting down on parachutes not that exciting. It's like it all it is is beautiful for the first time too. It's quiet and beautiful. But then you gotta do it again and again and again you know so. It's like it's like. I don't want to drugs because it's but of course like drugs live obsessive so it began to everything was about skydiving for that period of time. Okay there was like i literally. I was falling into free freedom. I you know the vietnam war was going on. I think about the draft. I was in love going to get married. That was okay but it wasn't as important as this living for the moment literally. That moment was thirty to sixty seconds in free fall. Open your parachute. Have a nice landing and do it again. So you we're gonna get married you in one thousand nine hundred going to get married. Maybe in another year so my friend was in college in southern ohio. And we did all the right stuff. It seemed like but suddenly The life that i knew ended in a moment. We're going up on a five skydivers in the plane. Three professionals in two students put out and the pilot piper cherokee six. And were you. Were you at this point considered professional. Yeah so how many jumps in were you at this point now. There are many one hundred. Some you know okay That's a lotta jumps. But but the thing was for me to get out of an airplane was as much as from you. Get out of that cabinet. Didn't take any any kind of. I was never afraid to jump and it wasn't because i was adrenaline junkie. I want afraid so there wasn't really it. Was the pleasure. Living for the pleasure of being in free fall. People can have that. I still living for the moment. That could be thirty year career. That can be a certain relationship that could be a goal like achieving something monetarily. This this was momentarily rushes of pleasure hiding what was really missing. So what happened when you had this horrifying acts we took off on how maybe one hundred feet in the air going on takeoff fast and then all of a sudden we lost the engine. The pilot hit me. We took five or six. Oh my god. We're going down wait. You're only one hundred feet up right after takeoff so you just took the plane off of the plane and a hundred feet up you lose the engine and there's nothing you can do because you lose all the lift too so you basically fall like a car would from that height going in other words. You're not yeah in other words. If you're at a thousand feet you're actually. The plane is flying a plane at one hundred feet. You're like iraq. Aerodynamic stall and just drop straight down. And i'm sure the view of the wind chill we're all did and we hit a tree. The wing this side of the plane where i was sitting in a tree and cartwheel a couple of times and of course it tore the fuselage open and we wedged into the ground. Of course my face dot my body going hundred miles. Now or against the instrument panel. Your face stopped your body seatbelt. Yeah going one hundred miles an hour a pretty bad head obviously and then shock and confusion as the skydiver leaving..
