"MVP Mitch. He can't lose his job in Chicago. You're Ryan, Pace and you're going to allow Nick foles to beat out Mitchell. Trubisky with ten days of paddock practice against no competition. That's not gonNA happen. Right and that's where I. Always it's tricky. People say well. Do you favor the veteran team? Because as you're pointing out, they're not gonNA. HAVE ANY Games play? It's going to be just hit the ground running. Let's go right hopefully. Guys out the playbook. The veteran guys you'd think they've been around in order. Condition their buys, etc, but maybe go other way sometimes Mike aac Differences Bliss. Maybe some of these younger players will come in, and they'll be fresher and we'll be ready to go and their bodies don't take as much time to recuperate, maybe technically the playbook. Playbook is harder to listening Cetera, but maybe just sheer towel will win I agree with you. September could be fascinating. If next week we do this podcast and guys reporting a camp. I'm very fascinated to know. Will it be the veteran? Players get favored of the younger players. It's going to be the vets and I'm just telling you. There's not enough coaches who run the personnel department in a League who have enough guts to go to the running back coach and say look I'm telling you who we're going to play like fans think that happens it don't. In New England. It may happen in a couple of other places, but it does so. What happens is think of it this way the Middle Management of the company. The coaches end up making executive decisions for the billion dollar industry. Right I mean it's really. Unbelievable so, who does the running back coach favorite? He's GonNa favor the guy that knows what to do. You know the personnels go guys going to favor the guy that has the most ability, so somebody's gotTa make a decision, and usually the head coach just goes with the CO position coach well. I was a position. Coach wants I always wanted my own players I wanted to call my own shots. Well, that's how organizations get screwed up. That's how things fall apart like the head coach of the personnel guy got say. Say Okay you coach. The running backs will decide who you coach and then make decisions going that way. There's a huge huge margin for error in this thing. Because there's not enough time to watch, it gets practice. We'll still here. This guy's having a great cap. This guy. We'll hear all that bullshit. But how do you back it up? That's going against everybody right? There's no way to tell like. Here's what happens a practice, right? You're a defensive back and you got to go one on one against the other. Other receivers you find the receiver you WANNA cover and always line up the rep against him unless you have the coach, which this rarely happens right unless you have a coach, dictate who goes against to and Hutu okay. No, no, no, you're not covering him out. Bring somebody else in here. You got him unless you do it like a basketball game. which the good teams do you just GonNa? Keep Convince Yourself. This guy's a good player. All He's good. He's good looking. I'm cover. Look at him out there he. He knows the place as like trubisky. Go to know exactly what to do with the ball at training camp because they're going to tell them where to throw it, and so there's a huge I'm telling you. There's a huge market here. No, you're right and sifting through. The BS is going to be hysterical. You know that people are GonNa say Oh, our third string receiver looks great. Yeah, that's because in in. This is gonNA. Get your third string quarter right even as you point out initially I, even playing the. PUSH UPS! There's a lot of steps looks in great shape. One more thought on this because you were the first when mentioned the cap could fall by thirty, two eighty, million, two major issue left the two sides NFL in the NFL. PA is economic how to deal the potential drop in revenue this season, and what such a decrease would mean to the twenty twenty one salary cap. How big a challenge is that going to be at also? Somebody's going to have to pay the seventy five million dollar bill for testing that goes into benefits, and that's usually owners pay that so now. The owners are seventy five million in the hole which part of the running a business. Test, you got to keep your people healthy, right? That's a benefit so no-one no-one, the owners. That's seventy five million in the hole I mean. They're going to have to figure out a way to cover some of that too I think they'll use a gradual inclined because I think. There's no way if they reduce this cap, I think Dan. Grazziano said it was going to go somewhere down. Eighty million I mean. I was the first one to report this. It's Hilarious I. Get no credit for I. wrote about it. They get no credit for. But the reality here is some teams can't afford to go. They'll little be poverty in the streets. If some teams have to lose eighty million off the CAP, the players salaries will dramatically decline, and the players know this, so this is a caveat. The owners using to get what they need to get. I'm sure they'll come. The summer's losing. Because it benefits the owners to no question, still going to be a sticky situation,.
"mike aac" Discussed on Bitches on Comics
"Our friend of the show. Sarah wanted to ask what are some of the first square comic characters out of all of the coming characters so I think the earliest one I have is from nineteen sixty eight. Do you have an earlier ones there. Yeah I have the ultra humanite which is a woman man. Monkey Situation Yeah definitely strange. Little strange old superman villain very rudimentary a understanding of Gender Dynamic Spec then of course but that was definitely an early take on a pretty clear character and then what do you have for the sixties. So I have captain his gums and his pervert pirates by S Clay Wilson in Zap comics from nineteen sixty eight. I'm not saying it was a a good thing right. But that was definitely a underground comic. That was super explicit sexually right and then you have the women's comics books trae Rasi Gay comics which is Howard cruse. Nineteen eighty women comics. They might have actually been like seventy two or something seventy one. Maybe but you know early and then you had ahead of course a lot of the people who are working on that went on into their own comics. Roberta Gregory and people like that. Has You know the naughty bits comic and that kind of stuff. Also of course love and rockets. We brought up multiple times. That's one of the earliest traditions of Queer characters. The ever made it anywhere close to a mainstream audience. I would say then you know then we start to get in text. DYKES DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR YA. Bechtel that was nineteen two opposites sub sects super text. And then yes we get into a lot of subtext mystique misdee- he does denny. Constantine Richter and shatter star a lot of these became also outline or star. Who was one of the first came out but before four northstar? There was an incredibly stereotypical character. That was called extreme. No I believe that that name means stranger bizarre something just an unbelievably offensive ends of character. Honestly people did not enjoy that people were really upset about it and fair enough Tara from team titans not teen titans was alluded to perhaps. Let's have a romance on the horizon before the book was cancelled and then it kind of goes into northstar coming out who his whole coming out story was awful all full of stereotypes. You know his gay mentor. WHO HAS AIDS and is dying and the young kid and there's just all kinds of stereotypes barrier types in that and then of course as I've said before Northstar is almost completely written out of the book? He gets a mini series. A few years later where there is no mention of him having come out so it takes a long time for him to actually come out really after he comes out and then of course you know. Now we're in the modern age and then there's you know billions of other characters. Some of the other ones I. I just thought were interesting. I think I think a lot of these characters as having been out for a long time. And it's like Mike God. This is like no time at all. So Constantine was confirmed as by in nineteen eighteen ninety two when it was confirmed with one half of a line and the odd bloke and then nothing for a very long time Oliver. Yeah years years later years later we got Oliver ICEMAN. ICEMAN wasn't outed till twenty fifteen gene. A lot of characters like Moon Dragon Valkyrie. All all of those characters who are highly heavily closeted. That woman is fridge in the late seventies early eighties and then comes back as a lesbian in. Like two thousand eleven even so about women's only been around for you know the last eight years essentially we've seen a lot of growth obviously over that time but she was really. I believe one of the early examples of queer person who has is our own comic. WHO's in a mainstream situation absolutely Loki really became solidly gender fluid and buy it was implied before in two thousand fourteen? Yeah it's it's ridiculous honestly a lot of this stuff was incredibly slow moving and even characters our of course of course storm had a fling with Yukio. We were reading comics. Were storm was in a hot tub with Yukio playing footsie naked. You know but it was immediately not ever brought up again. So and you know Michigan Destiny Who every person knew that? That was a lesbian couple. It's really difficult to hide. Those two characters as being I mean you know maybe a lesbian and then gender queer couple or maybe a gender queer couple general but like essentially there's a queer couple right you know who at the time would have been considered lesbian and yeah we're only just now. We just now saw their on panel kiss for the first time and it was a flashback. So you know. We're still waiting through this stuff of Kitty. pryde still straight you know. Lay Charlie Quinton in poison ivy. Twenty fifteen they were confirmed that took years. And also you know they haven't and been able to make that story work except for in bombshells and then for a really brief time in the Amanda Conner Series and Both of those I think are great but it's really painful Foale to love those characters sometimes to see the way that they're written jug head was only confirmed as ace in two thousand sixteen and that didn't transfer it to the river. He's he's he's Allah Sexual Rhino and that stinks coagulate Trans Woman in Doom patrol. That's nine hundred ninety eight. I believe created by Rachel Pollack right away. Hi so as created by a Trans Woman Very interesting character. We're talking about her earlier. She is a sex worker. WHO has sex with rebus and then contracts contracts superpowers through their sexual encounter which I love and find weird? Different Times have a prophylactic exciting characters who died in the Sandman. There's that that's a big old list You know in hulking and wiccan. They were five. Sadly sadly was like early for this list. You know so you know now. We have America but we don't see enough of America America I'm sorry a lesbian who can kick star-shaped holes Mr dimensions and highs you. Princess in is like Latin x person. Yeah ye-yes she's the buzz. Where is this story yeah? Why don't always see more of her time? Yeah I think part of the reason. We don't see it for a long time is supposedly you know word on the street is marvel for instance had a no gays in the Marvel Universe Verse Policy Under Jim. Shooter's eighties tenure. Right or just the comics code in general so we can say yeah. Jim Shooter wasn't budging on that. But that was definitely something that we can't boil L. Down to being one editorial decision for sure for all of the editors had a fairly anti-woman approach for a long time. Not I'm not gonNA say all of them. I'm sure there's great great dude's not all men or whatever but it wasn't move. Yeah the facts. Don't always back you up on that. Not all men thing thing but I will say that someone worse than others and I also will say that any kind of hostile misogyny is probably going to reflect how you view queer people as well so if you're already hostile to women you're probably not going to be super accepting of gay people and it doesn't seem like there was a lot of acceptance during that time or even into the nineties. Uh even into the now you know we still struggle to get this representation so absolutely and I just don't WanNa leave them off because they end up being like kind of acute power power couple is midnight or and Apollo them. Yeah and they ended up parenting together. which is pretty cool? Yeah there's story is really hit and miss because you have people like Mike aac Millar. Sorry Mark Millar writing them but You Know Damn I don't know what to say sometimes it's Q.. Like I'm here for when he not in writing it. I have that ability. We were talking about this on a different episode where ability when whenever gene comes up like fine up with some blinders on. It's me was queer characters. Yeah good character comes up. I'm like this is great. I just love people so badly. Yeah Apollo midnight are iconic and they certainly were characters that were outside of mainstream. But yeah we were talking about like Pearla and stuff imprint. As a character who after years and years and years was outed as being sexual and end got a girlfriend and it was really gosh darn cute and it was actually kind of the best story for her because it was after a really long time of people dismissing her and then she had this kind of interesting queer personality that we got to see a lot of all of a sudden added all of this dimension to her. That's kind of the thing that people forget is when you are taking a character. That isn't very well known or it's a character who's been thrown under the bus a lot of times that we don't see a lot of like if somebody like Van Perla who's regularly dismissed. Part of her story has always seemed very queer and so to add the queasiness adds so much to her character. Because it's almost like a block is being removed from them right totally. I I feel exactly. I felt with Loki. Yeah about ICEMAN. He's wrong characters that after years and years of subtexts we finally get these better better stories with them in the way that they got to have better stories is the way that a lot of us get to better stories inspire coming out of the closet..

"The mean gift came on this podcast open mic. No I mean when you look at this right. You know the the whole motivation for this is Jeff. Bezos owns the Washington Post. And when Jamal Shoghi was murdered ordered by the Crown Prince The Washington Post they were aggressively covering this as they would. Because this is unheard of this. I mean not unheard of state sanctioned. Murder is pretty common. It's been around for a while. Yeah this whole thing of like well. They lured him into an embassy and then his he was. You know his body was dissemble taken on like okay just really disturbing shit. So the theory goes is that by having this kind of blackmail material on Basil's us that maybe that could influence the coverage that the Washington Post is doing But no but it also really does not look good for Am I the parent company of the national wire her because they're like. Are you like that gorgeous. Publication that gorgeous publications. It's not looking good for them. No especially now. I mean the Surro- winning because they were saying like no. We got this from the brother of Laura Sanchez I think and now it's like hold on are you because they also so did a really nice puff piece on Mohammed bin Salman like a whole Glossy magazine that was like is this new crown prince the new Crown Mohammed Bay Salman who knows the woke crown prince so more on that as it as it comes out but national enquirer. Yeah we'll see what they have to say so far. They have no comment. But we'll see what happens and then just to check in on the polls real quick because right now obviously the Amy Klobuchar Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders being senators. They have to be in DC for this entire impeachment process so they have to put their campaigns on hold rather they can't be out there glad-handing like they would wanna be considering. The Iowa caucuses are coming up But when you look at the polls There's one poll taken at the you from CNN recently CNN the people who were like should Bernie and Elizabeth Warren keep fighting Yes please day found in their own. Poll that Of all the Democrats being pulled twenty-seven percent of Democrats who are voting or Democrat leaning independence per Bernie Sanders to Joe Biden. Who Only got at twenty four percent so now according to this poll Bernie is the front runner? But there's other polls that say Biden Still Ahead I think it all depends. I think if you look look at it though Bernie has been slowly building momentum since the end of the year and then there was another poll that came out putting a lot of the Democratic candidates head to head with trump in a hypothetical race seeing. Who would win in that? Poll found that Bernie would get fifty two percent of voters to trump's forty-three percent so nine point lead in second place was Joe Biden with fifty percent to trump's forty three. That's seven then fucking Mike aac Bloomberg fuck that dude is like just behind them with a seven point lead forty nine percent to forty two percent. You counting money right now for mench. Oh it's like every time you mentioned his name you start counting money. Well I just gotTa make sure this is. Yeah this is since the ad that you guys.

"I had no idea about the ties to the dark tower. But I'm reading rose madder now and it's like that is also kind of tying into the dark tower so there are more dark tower books than King has labeled essentially. Because you have the stand. You have this then you have rose matter almost immediately after this or immediately after this actually I think and then who knows how many more of his books will have these little tidbits but I feel like with insomnia. You're getting even more important information than maybe what we get from the stand about the dark tower. Yes and I have been told that 'cause I again haven't read the last book this ties in incredibly heavily with the last book like it is. It is something that you should read if you're reading the dark tower series. That's kind of how it's important side material will say because it gives you more background. But the connections to the tower kind of very slowly creep in and I wonder what someone would think if this is like the first Steven King Book they picked up like I feel like I. I would feel bad if you've been reading king for a long time like even if you've never read any of the dark tower books like you're kind of aware of the tower as thing and you've seen scene Rowland mentioned because he's mentioned couple times in this one never in any real capacity but he's talked about and you've heard mentioned mentioned. You've you've seen other things in that kind of hint that there's some other bigger world going on in the background of all of kings books but if this this when you like. Why do I care about this kid? Who's what's what so but if you've read any of his other stuff like I feel like this is a really rewarding read in not because of how how it manages to take the dark tower mythos and bring it into his other books and help it? really flesh out wrote how diverse works like you said like the tower has the levels and this gives a different metaphorical reading on what at those levels are and how the tower exists in all dimensions. I guess that's the word we'll go dimension. I feel like that's the only word that might suffice. Because when it comes to the fantasy elements of kings storytelling. Fantasy isn't necessarily my in January. I mean the most I've dug into fantasy really is like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and some of Neil gaiman stuff so it's not like I'm An avid fantasy reader by any means I got into king because of his horror elements and I felt enough of that in this book for it to kind of keep me wanting wanting to figure out what happens at the end but I feel like because I've only started the dark tower and I don't really know how this ties in yet. It made it a little less enjoyable for me if that makes any sense because now I'm kind of like okay. Well did this story serve any purpose other than serving as a connection to the dark tower or is it just one of those things working was like. Oh Hey I have all these dark tower stories in mind so let me just give you a random piece and not label it as dark tower book. Yes I can totally see that 'cause I think how well the ending works for you and like the the under arching structure of why the story is happening because you're right. This is very much a on a certain level. This is very much a explanation of of character in the dark tower But it's also like a story about Ralph because the story is indirectly about the person. It feels like it's kind of trying to work at two purposes. You know trying to like tell two stories at the same time almost and it. It's really going to depend on how it works for you because I liked it but I do read a lot of fantasy novels. I went through a period of reading a lot of epic. Fantasy like big tomes So it wasn't that they do that a lot and fantasy books. That is not unusual usual to have kind of multiple purposes going in a story so for me it was like. Oh Okay I see. We're we're trying to world build and tell a whole complete story and it's a real tossup of how it's GonNa work for the individual. Yeah because the grounded rounded parts of the story certainly take place in dairy so then you're like okay. Maybe this has more than just the connection with Mike aac being part of the story and then it Kinda doesn't go that direction and once the Greek mythology came into and I was like I don't know any of these names so there's probably probably a lot that I'm missing here so I'm glad that you have clarified some of that for me and then the character in question for the Towers Patrick Danville and he appears in this book and then in the dark tower which is book seven of the series. which you said is the last book? It's not the last published book but the one after as like a space between books four and five so you know he just really stood out of order for whatever reason but as far as I know that is at the end of the dark tower series. So the fact that I'm going to now have to wait like I don't know twenty more books. Take before I get to that. I don't I think it's twenty but it's pretty close so I have quite some time before I'm going to get to it. And that's probably how people who read these books as they were being released felt because there's a huge gap between this and that dark tower book right and I mean this was ninety. This was published in nineteen ninety four and was was the dark tower. Like you said like twenty bucks and I mean I think this this would have been after the fourth one but before the big rush of the last three that it happened because he didn't publish any dark tower books for quite some time and then he had learned three back to back to back right and I think that was the from what I've read. I think I think it's an on writing. He talks about that he realized like Oh shit I better finish the series right right right and so there's at least ten years if not more space between this and the last star tower. So it's it's very very interesting to me that this character has been was set up so long in advance because it would have been weird if he didn't didn't use it but that's a lot of setup for something that doesn't come to fruition for an incredibly long period of time and from the From what the the apropos season. Not Atra Pos close and leases. Tell him like. It's kind of clear after that king knew what he was going to use this character for. It wasn't just like oh well we'll just tell this interesting story. It's like he had a plan of like okay. This character. Patrick has this purpose that he needs to get taken care of. So we'll tell the story of his life being saved so he can fulfill that purpose. Yeah and you were right. It was ten years so book six and seven both came out in two thousand four and five came out in two thousand three so he really just like cranked out the material. And from what I can tell from the gunslinger booking knew what story he was going to tell because in the early books he kept saying and you know the story will continue so obviously he had this idea in his head for years upon years because the gap between the gunslinger being released in eighty two all the way to the series quote unquote ending in two thousand and four. That's a big gap. That's a Lotta years twenty two years and then you have the wind through the keyhole which came out even later in twenty twelve so to really get get the entire story. People had to wait thirty year. So that's just crazy for a series to drag drag on that long and it's because king was putting out so many other things he didn't want the dark tower to be his only thing he was working on right that that man is ahead is obviously stuffed with ideas. They're constantly begging like commanding to be get to be released. And you know with that kind of book or that kind of series rather you have to be so careful with what you're doing because it's usually has to come at the right time it's hard to just I force that to come out and have it come out right especially for someone who's constantly coming up with new ideas and like. Oh well I really want to write this book now. Oh and I want to write this book now. And he just didn't get back to it and I think my guess would be by the time he hit the fourth book he was like. Oh God this is. This is really complicated. I'll just put it off and keep putting it off keep putting it off until like okay. I better finish this because I might die type of situation and I think that. But he's still kinda like gives us little tidbits from this and rose matter and a few other books Later on in the series are in his collection of writings were. Yeah I definitely found Ralph and Lois as a team very compelling and like I mentioned earlier that sort of what kept me going with the story because I was so invested in those two by the time you had the little Oh ball Dr doctors playing a bigger role and trump does so you have this buildup that makes you like these characters and I think that's something Matt King does so well because if I didn't like Ralf in lowest other than this podcast I would not have had a ton of incentive to want to finish that book especially with that being as long as it is. Yeah I think they're they're so compelling there so interesting and like they're so different like you just don't get to see these kind of people who and as always he writes people who are different than him because obviously he was not seventy when he wrote this book Quite a ways away from it at that point and but yet they feel so lived in as most of his characters do and I just wanted to know and I think it was a it was really good idea a start. START US getting to know Ralph with the death of his wife because when you see someone in a book who's going through that kind of trauma like you get to. I know them on this very deep vulnerable level pretty quickly. Because you're seeing how they're reacting to all of this pain and it makes us feel for Ralph and want him to feel better and then he gets the insomnia any just starts to go downhill from there and it's like I just want this guy to have win. He's got to have a win right. You know. And then his relationship at his Ann Lewis is relationship with bill McGovern who's Ralph's downstairs neighbor And I really love how the three of them have the relationship between the three of them and how they all interplay with each other because McGovern is such which so different from the two of them so it allows them to bounce off of him and creates little conflicts. Wants to keep us going as we're building to the bigger conflict exactly and a lot of what I enjoyed about this has to do with how king structured the the story as a whole but also just the various character arcs within the story. Like you said if we didn't start off with seeing the trauma that Ralph had gone through and how he was suffering with the insomnia and everything like that we wouldn't have cared as much about his story and how so it led him to lois how it led him to ultimately in the end his sacrifice which will talk about in a little bit but just the way king rights characters. I he really knows where to drop them in in the story. It's like okay. We're going to give you this character. Who has been through this horrible thanks and is struggling so much to get over it because of this other thing that came about because of it right right and that it gives us such a recent isn't root for him and I think in particular? I think one of the things I've really loved about Ralph's character is how he interacts with a deep know. WHO's the puppet bit of the puppet? Yeah he's Atra posts human puppet and how immediately Ralph is like. I've gotten no time. I'm for you once Ed. Because we see ed in the very beginning of the book where he's acting completely out of character and he's got some road rage going yeah and cursing cursing and hitting this guy who was much bigger than him in. Ralph Kinda helps defuse the situation. But then that all gets Kinda lost once You know his wife dies which is like the next scene and then we see where Ed has beaten Helen and sheet the scene where she is walking after after he's horrifically beaten her and she's walking with her baby and how Ralph becomes so enraged despite his age seventy year old man again. Dan Goes to confront this like early thirties. Dude who literally just beat the shit out of his wife and knows he.

He wanted to make Some sort of data service he wanted to to launch out there and then I remember reading about a whiskey tasting society that he wanted to create so I guess they were investing in his ability to make these into a profitable ventures right so and we'll ask him of course but I guess my my my big question here is like our shareholders of Mike contractually legally entitled to X.. Prophets of anything he does that makes money meaning starting a business getting a job. Like that's that's that's the starting point that I'd like to understand the beginning. We gotta ask but I think so because one shareholder wrote about how he thought this was a great way to diversify his portfolio. Ha there were expecting real return on the merits of a human. Like this guy seems smart and capable. So I'm going to invest in his In his life yeah and therefore return. Get a return on that as opposed to investing in an idea or a business or whatever yeah. I have some questions about about the relationship that he was A. We are here to do that. I feel like there's an element of like well as I put it out there to investors that you know I was thinking that the pros and cons of getting to me and they said I should get it so it's not up to me getting and then you're telling me that to your long term partner partner which is apparently and with him mayor no longer dating. I'm curious like how much he sees visit them controlling his fate. He is the one kind of putting out all of these things to them that they should decide on so anyway I mean on the one hand. It's amazing because you don't have to be burdened by decision making any longer but while there's a lot of paperwork apparently so he has to be burdened by that half of the decision making but it takes emotion ocean out of it right like they were. They were like deciding who he was going to date. And it's like well you could say everything about this person on paper that doesn't mean you should date via area. Yeah good point good point. There's that intangible thing but anyway yes so. He has a team of people deciding every single thing he does. It sounds a little bit like a relief and this is for life right. I mean I guess unless one day he decides to like buy all the shares back but yeah owns most tim self but his shares are nonvoting. Okay Yeah so if you bought the staff wife up at this is I wonder if this is really legally binding because like on market like you buy something. It's yours but this is not a marketplace. It's a person it's a market he created created does it. Is it beholden to the laws of the SEC. And such I doubt it. Those are great questions get him in here. Must be some kind of contract right but I mean. They exchanged money from what I've read about this guy. I imagine there's there's contracts involved but I don't know let's well we need to trivia. I hate to tell you. Speaking of contractually binding obligation actually is true perfect segue. Today's episode is about buying shares in someone and You know making an investment getting a return earn on that investment. Hopefully we will find out more in just a moment. Today's Trivia is derived from a study from January twenty nineteen which found through analyzing lots of data economic data that this collectible item yields a better investment return than buying gold or even your typical stock on a stock market which of these choices has a higher fire market return than your average investment. Okay is it beanie. Babies might be is definitely not beanie babies number. You can put up with actions. I remember made no sense. I just feel vindicated feel vindicated that beanie babies did not pay off All Right which of these has a higher market return than gold. Your choices are a first edition books. Uh Be Disney Christmas ornaments or see Lego sets. What I'm I'm GonNa go with first addition books because I'm just remembering in college? They had this rare Book Library with First Editions and they were kept like in a vault and if there was a fire they would drop underneath the earth. Like these things are hyper valuable. So yeah I'll go that I'm going to diversify our portfolio and go with those. The excellent choice. Jen goes with books. Alagoas with legos. Which of these is more valuable than gold? Over time. We will find out the correct. The answer after this commercial break real advertisement entitled Free Almonds to get rid of weekly Durham North Carolina. The website where I get my second hand.

I'm Steve Patterson in Los Angeles now back to Leicester in New York president trump returning from the UK. Okay tonight leaving one humiliation behind only to face another here at home before leaving the NATO meetings in London the President was mocked by other world leaders in a hot Mike AAC Moment caught on camera then abruptly calling off a scheduled news conference and as he was in the air back on Capitol Hill. A trio of legal scholars were telling Democrats Kratz. Exactly what they wanted to hear. The president has indeed committed impeachable offenses. And that's where we start with. NBC's Peter Alexander. Tonight the house. Democrats leaning on history to make their case for impeaching president trump. If what we're talking about is not impeachable. The nothing is impeachable inviting a panel all of constitutional scholars to bolster their investigation. President trump has committed impeachable high crimes and misdemeanors by corruptly abusing the office of the presidency. What has happened in the case? Today is something that I do not think we have ever seen before a president who has double down on violating his oath to faithfully execute the laws. Three of the Democrats experts arguing the president's alleged misconduct pressuring Ukraine's leader to investigate the president's political arrival. Joe Biden is grounds for removal the Republicans loan witness dismissing the Democrats case as wafer thin. I'm concerned about lowering impeachment. Richemont standards to fit a positive evidence and an abundance of anger. Democrats emphasizing the urgency for action. If we we do not act to hold them in check now. President trump will almost certainly try again to solicit interference in the election. But the top Republican Doug Collins appearing exasperated attack the inquiry as a partisan sham didn't start with smaller. It didn't start with a phone call. You know where this started. sharded with Retain Brooklyn in November twenty sixteen with Democrats. I ain't GonNa Impeach vote before Christmas. Republicans say they're focusing on the calendar. Not The facts. This is a fast fast impeachment. I would argue not a fast impeachment. It's a predetermined impeachment tone not always scholarly Professor Pamela Carlin taking offense to the Republicans assertion Russian. The experts have not done their homework. I would like to say to you sir that I read transcripts of every one of the witnesses. I'm insulted by the suggestion that has a law professor. I don't care about those facts later. Carlin drawing criticism for invoking president trump's thirteen year old son to make her point that the president accident is not a king. The constitution says there can be no titles of nobility so all the president can name his son Barron. He can't make him a baron. The first lady tweeting Pamela. Carlin you should be ashamed. Carlin later apologizing. I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president's it was wrong of me to do that. All of it coming is rudy. Giuliani the president's personal lawyer already under scrutiny for his role in the pressure campaign on Ukraine is back in eastern Eastern Europe according to The New York Times meeting with an ousted. Ukrainian prosecutor as Giuliani tries to dig up dirt on the president's political rivals at Peterson. What's next in this impeachment process? Yeah Lesser After. Today's merrythought hearing house. Democrats are trying to keep to a short time line to review the evidence draft articles of impeachment and vote all in the next two and a half weeks after Peter Alexander at the White House. Thank you and for his part. The president hoped his trip to the NATO summit would focus attention attention on his foreign policy priorities as the impeachment drama played out at home instead. There was only more controversy in London. Kristen welker is there tonight off tonight. While other world leaders were holding closing press conferences. President trump was leaving London in dramatic fashion abruptly. Canceling a plan news conference surprising apprising even his own staff when he announced the news himself is the reason that press suffering because we've had about eight of them so I can't imagine you'd have the questions. The move came after stunning video emerged overnight. Some of America's closest allies caught on video at Buckingham Palace mocking him in one part Canadian Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Who met with the president for over half an hour? Tuesday can be heard venting about someone's tardiness.

"Is going to sound immodest artists. But I'm obviously a top tier candidate and so I did expect that I would be on the stage and kits tonight because there are a lot of people that are trying to make the stage for the next debate okay. She said she's a top tier candidate. And it sure looked like that back in those early days when she's getting all of this negative attention where is she now. She's trailing Mike Bloomberg She's trailing Mike Bloomberg Guy who's barely in the race. There is a a poll that just came out. It's a poll from Harvard. Harris Mike aac Bloomberg is entering the race about six percent. So he's not doing well. He's got like Beta numbers. He's got six percent common the Harris's down at two percent. She went from a top tier candidate. At least in her own mind to two percent trailing the ex mayor of New York who's half a democrat. WHO's a billionaire in air? WHO's a white guy who's should not be doing well in this Democratic primary? And who isn't doing well but he's doing better than her he's up three points she's down two points points because all the attention that Comma Harris got was sizzle. It was all sizzle. No steak same thing for Elizabeth Warren. It's not even just these low tier candidates like Beta or Kamla or the people that we forget. Liz Warranty. Elizabeth is considered a top tier candidate. All sizzle no steak stake in case of Elizabeth Warren. It's all smoke signals. No peyote Elizabeth. Warren comes out right a couple of weeks ago. She unveils her healthcare plan. And this gets her a lot of attention fifty two trillion dollar plan. She has no idea she's going to pay for it. She says that she's going to pay for it by taxing billionaires. That doesn't make any sense. Six six hundred twenty one billionaires in the country their combined net worth is about three point two trillion dollars. If she took away all of their money it wouldn't get her through one year of her plan but it gets a lot of attention. She's rising up all the momentum's with Elizabeth Warren and then once people stop and consider that plan she starts to tank in the polls. Now once you get into this cycle once you get into the cycle of requiring all of this just negative attention and attention at all costs to stay relevant to stay in the headlines it it creates a very vicious cycle. So now she's out of the news for a little bit all. That good press came quickly has fizzled. So she's trying to recapture it by even more radical plans. She just endorsed the other day getting rid of the Electoral College here. She is as a presidential candidate. What are your thoughts on the Electoral College?.

When it CA- fussell was heard the reception running through he was startled to find Dwayne and Mike roaches demanding to know why no one was up on the ridge looking for Travis? The pair had gone out to join the third day of the search only to find nobody there having begun to suspect that some kind of hoax excuse being played out Gillespie who somewhat taken aback by the evident concern and passion. Dwayne Mike's demand within an hour cirque was reinstated with horses jeeps and rescue helicopter brought in for good measure having flown in helicopters during during his time in the military that afternoon dwayne joint the helicopter crew in the air peering down the gaps in between the trees for any sign of his brother. He couldn't decide whether to be worried or relieved. When by the end of the day date once again failed to find anything? Back in snowflake a Volkswagen van pulled into the town square to join the throng of News Vans and other unfamiliar vehicles vehicles that had been steadily sending on the town by then news of Travis's disappearance and the unusual explanation behind it it spread far and wide with many journalists and UFO enthusiasts keen to investigate the wild story for themselves one. Such enthusiast asked was Fred Sylvanus from Phoenix. Who for the past? Twenty years had conducted field research for the Arizona Regional UFO project that afternoon. Fred was put in touch with Mike and Dwayne who agreed to join him in his fan for an interview. Mike AAC began with an account of the craft. They'd seen how pretty it had been like a fancy new car. He said and how he'd been almost mesmerized by just how beautiful the full of thing it was to look then twain chimed in with something unexpected. He had also seen one almost identical to what might described in broad daylight twelve years before not only that he and Travis had discussed. UFO's at at great length and what they would do with the ever got close to one which was walked asked Fred they would try to establish contact with it of calls also came to aims reply. It wasn't alarming admission to sylvanus since he was previously under the impression that none of the men uninvolved had any prior interest in. UFO's in his experienced opinion evidence of such interest was often a red flag west stories as of apparent sightings and abductions were concerned and then came another troubling revelation. This time for Mike and as it turned out he and his crew were wildly behind schedule on the contract. Having already received one extension the crew was was struggling to meet their second deadline. As Mike. Let slip to Salinas. Perhaps with all that had been going on the forestry service might be willing offer them a second extension there was just one. Final question said souvenirs before wrapping up. Where did the pair thing that Travis was now wherever he is at Wayne it is not on this?.

He had with the cats did Jack Llewellyn the unknown targets. Last week it was so bizarre. So bizarre indeed lead Brian. In that first meeting did score touchdown one of the few. He scored this season forecast to seventy yards but again he is a low floor. Five or fewer targets in nine of ten games hasn't scored a touchdown on since week seven. Only one touch on five end zone target. So he's not hitting that one either and how about the match against Titans Houston his face. The most tight end pass routes the season but have allowed the eleventh fewest receiving yards the fourth lowest yards target the second lowest catch rates so. This defense has been good against tight ends. It makes me nervous about Hebron and doyle as starters despite you. Bronze uptick in usage. The Texans have a lot cornerback struggles this year.

Yeah and it's going to be heated. We're GONNA buy some heaters some legit heaters to heat it up so anyways his. TV's the whole deal so check it out but first things first First things first is I apologize for the audio quality last show and I I gotTa tell you I know what it sounded like if you had any idea how much work the audio technician or the Audio Tech. Talk to try to fix that audio if if you could hurt it beforehand. It was one of those situations where I knew that we people wanted to hear the episode had to put it out wanted to put it out the minute it was done it was like I listen to a little bit of it and I was like. Oh No I do. We really want to go back and record that whole episode of Gin. And here's what happened so I have a two year old and br brought her in studio we were hanging out in. She was alone in the studio for maybe sixty seconds but she loves lights and buttons and so she has done this a number number of times press whenever she's been in the studio with me. She's press buttons knobs all that it's always been easy to identify when we do a soundcheck because the levels are off she I feel like is like a boss baby if you sure. She knew what she was doing. She said all right. Listen here buddy. You caught clotted. Every time I know how to fix this so she turned all the audio levels up on every microphone which normally easy easy find you start to soundcheck in the levels or crazy high. And you're like Oh man she messed with it no no no she muted one microphone. Microphone so as I started a soundcheck the other mice were so high sensitivity that they caught my have volume of my voice and it was perfect the perfect level for if it was set up normal and because of that I was minimally ten feet away from the live Mike aac but anyways two hundred seventy two two year old tech Guru we got one for ya she will sabotage everything but anyways I I think biggest news right now. Current events is chase young as predicted by everyone outside a Kirk herbstreit and ESPN KIRK herbstreet as we mentioned on the dumb ass S. announcer segment. That has not yet been named predicted. Four Games was it was going to be four games. That's four games four games and then yelled at everyone on twitter that uninformed people are saying paying for games outside of the fact that he's the one that said four games yeah. I loved his His tweet today after he got announced right it was war as ordeal as predicted. Chase young two games and to be honest with you it. I wouldn't even say it's a penalty it's like hey you get to rest the rest of my college football out to in a irrelevant games and get him. Ultra healthy ultra explosive. Four the three game stretch to make the playoffs. It's I mean you couldn't ask for a better our situation and so the one thing I do want to clear up is not. I'm not GonNa Digress on anything that I reported but the civil reality of what I was trying to you get across his two things. One is rumors or the devil and the unwavered rumor was that Michael Oxley and Alisha Brooks his former highschool coach. Where the SNITCH is this whole thing? They created it. They did it. They were passed whatever. And that's what started it all. That is one hundred percent without basis. And that's not true that is that is one hundred percent not true and the other thing I reported was that when I investigated if that was true because I knew it wasn't I knew I know both those people and I know that Mike Loxley would never snitch on anyone you I mean you could break the rules blatantly and he would be like that screwed up and you're GONNA get yours but he would not turn you in. He that's not how he operates. Analyzer Brooks is a great person great coach and probably cares about chase young a lot dot and he from what. My experience recruiting is school would never do that to one of his former players. Yeah so that's when I started investigating it and as I reported ed all inclination in the Maryland area in the DC Maryland area PG county where chases from that whole area. Everyone is like what that's the last person that was no chance of Sam but let me tell you who were hearing. It was and I said it three different high school coach sources said Doc look at James Franklin because everything we hear is he is the one that didn't wanna play chase and so he thought he could get him deemed ineligible and this. This is pre Minnesota Law. Insane that here. Here's here's what I saw. Two things that I saw and one is a former Buckeye who took some video of key. Andre Jones after the game say I'll use a snitch like that's what the Buckeye players were saying to him and he took it and ran with it uh-huh but let me explain that. And here's what. They meant us a snitch because he used to be a Buckeye and all of them knows. They're they're program and so he's now on Maryland and and so he is telling people like oh they do this or this is what they do. It had nothing to do with chase young. That's what I was GONNA say. Let me tell you if they actually believed a key. Andre Jones was the one that blew the whistle on chase young. They wouldn't be hanging out with them. Taking pictures like it was like thirty people trying to end the Pixel and I outlined it on the show yesterday yesterday or whatever and Andre Jones was one of the most liked and still one of the best friends of all those kids. There's not a chance in hell. He was at any involvement But to that point they were called him snitch. Having Fun with them about the fact that he told Maryland coaches and teammates like what they do. It Ohio Ohio state like it was just a fun. Interaction came out afterwards on twitter. And we're like man you don't even know like playing around but the people ran with it. Oh absolutely lutely but the other thing was if it was Is As brooks that. Was the wind blew the Elijah Elisha. Sorry Alisha Brooks if it was him that that would just ruin Maryland's recruiting in that area that just that's not even fathomable. That's what I detail yesterday. I mean there's not a chance in hell that not only would loxley or Alisha Brooks I do that. They would not do that regardless but they certainly wouldn't burn bridges for the only chance they have to build back up the Maryland program. There's not a chance so anyways just wanted to clarify fi any i. I certainly don't have any concrete facts. I don't have an audio recording of James Franklin calling the NCAA. But I'm just reporting. What's on the streets of Maryland? Because because mainly because so many people in especially in Buckeye nation we were freaking out that that Loxley Alisha Brooks were the ones that did it. I get it there. There is some kind of direct correlation between the three. But that's certainly not the case so that was the whole point of it. Run with it as you may. I don't really care. I don't know James Franklin well enough to care but but it that was the. That's the rumor mill if you want if you want to report real rumors. The rumor which is unbiased unproven. Is that James Franklin. Did it point point blank in the bottom line is he's back after and that's the best part that rutger. Sorry that that's the best part is if it if it is actually true. What OUGHTA middle thing? Oh man you just. You're just rested up and pissed off the best player in college football. That was smart but I had. I just wanted to re touch on that that before we moved on but just because I guess it's relevant. Apparently I said something that people ran with. But here's what I really WanNa talk about before before we get into the we we. We're we'RE GONNA talk a couple matchups Baylor Oklahoma's my by game of the week. I'm really excited for Georgia. Auburn is huge game. Wake Forest Clemson's not a huge game but it's really really CLEMSON's one chance to lose a game only game on the schedule. Yeah and then we are going to have. We have Obama insider. And I'm really excited. Ryder bought it. Because she's a bowling Green Falcon an Ohio native. That is now the sports anchor in Birmingham at the probably the biggest news station down there with with so much insight so make sure you stay tuned for that at the end of the episode. We're going to bring simone. Eli On for a little a little insight from Alabama country but before we do. Let's talk about the college. Football playoff rankings. Do we really have to yeah we do. I know it's relevant. We do for a number reasons is because I have some things that I first of all I predicted the top. Four top five really they were not my rankings. But I said that this is what the playoff committee I would do if you listen to the last episode outside of the Echo. You're going to hear that I said it would be Lsu Ohio State Clemson. And I said I think they're going to put Georgia at four five and then Oregon at six. That's what I thought they would do. And they sure did. And here's why I don't disagree with.
"mike aac" Discussed on Mt. Rushmore Podcast
"Movie on this list. There wasn't just a good movie. Had the one that had a good dumb character. Okay and I think it's he plays plays you know. He calls himself a jerk but he's just kind of an idiot right. He's just so unused to the world large. He doesn't understand anything that's going on. He's so naive. He's I still understand why he's what is the jerk part in him other than him just being. Yeah once it gets rich. I guess so all right so that gets a Ding Ding Ding. Because this was a choice of Alan Simpson. WHO has the Double Steve Martin? Because he chose Steve Martin As a cameo and Steve Martin in the Jerk Steve Martin allergist he's a marked Martian to new Martian. There's so many movies. There's so many moments in this movie where I know that I will be sitting on the couch. And just saying so stupid. But laughing like the entire thing with him creating being the glass holder removal and the little hand is is is leading up to across ide joke. Yeah that's it. That's the entire thing. His his downfall is a adum. Yeah can you get somebody to do. A an is cross thing like that's it. It's so it's so dumb and he's shooting at the cans. Yes stay away from the cans. I just I love this because here. I'm somebody somebody. This entire movie could just be shouting out quotes. This is also one of those like Mount Rushmore of Lake quotable movies yeah. We're everything that everyone says is it's just so wonderful. Yeah but I think this movie there aren't a lot of you know we kind of eluded to at the beginning where some movies have like a big social. Oh commentary this one doesn't. It's just about this dumb guy who gets rich. WHO TURNS INTO A jerk? Thank you Richard and who returns to his family and is still just this guy. He kind of learns his lesson but doesn't really he kind of just gets taken back in by up at Peter's and it's just it's just a great dumb movie. Yeah Watch over yeah. Well we've kind of come around full circle a little bit because The jerk was written by Carl Gottlieb. who was a writer on jaws and really yeah so writer on Joss Four? I don't know if he was for. And the judge with Michael Caine in it. But yeah he was brought along by this Steven Spielberg to do all this kind of environmental kind of dialogue and he worked on jaws forever but it was fun story. Where Steve Martin was Carl? GOTTLIEB was working on the screenplay with Steve Martin who was just a big famous comedian at that time and they were kind of running into dead. Ends and Steve Martin said well whenever my act is dying thing as as a stand up comic I say this one line phase me gets everybody laughing. I was born a poor black child and everybody just laughs and then it got Adam and then it can go play Banjo or do something hilarious. So that's funny. Yeah so that was his saver type line. and that's the entire premise of that whole film. So who's the the jerk near. Yeah okay a Richard where you go I will stay in the comedy realm for my second choice. Okay and I will stay with the movie that I think is quite a bit of its comedic. DNA At least. Let's say to the jerk and that would be awesome powers. The it shocked me on another movie that I will constantly say. Oh that's so stupid and laugh all the way through. I think I think that's that's it's I think. Think that's what it shares with the charge. So much of Mike Myers. Humor is taking an obvious joke and then pushing it passed. Its limit just continuing to hammer the Joe Jokes funny once. It's not funny twice. It's funny again three times. It's hilarious the fourth time. Yeah and and that's kind of I think the Mike Myers School of comedy and it's especially on display in this movie where there's so many like the whole scene with the Swedish penis pump for for example. And that's the thing that cracks me up every time. And it's just it's much like with the jerk in the optic grab. It is such an obvious setup. Wait which movie are you talking about. Mike Myers the spy. Who shagged me? or Mike Myers international man of mystery. Oh interesting say saints did I see SPY SHAG MEA. I Meant International Manifesto Younger Austin powers the original Austin. Okay my apology. That's okay misspoke Yeah that scene. I can watch having watched the movie. A dozen sometimes you know. It's still cracks me up and I think if that's that's important in a dumb movie good movie is that even even though you can see even though the first time that you watch you can see the punchline coming yeah it's still manages to be funny and even on the twelfth viewing after you know Oh exactly at every line in the movie it still manages to be funny and I again. I just think that's so much of what's in his comedy. DNA It's it's that money python thing where they could be. I think we've talked about this before on the show where they could be incredibly sophisticated and smart with their humor but they also also have two guys slapping each other with fish until one guy falls into a river. I do appreciate someone is willing to just be silly. And Mike AAC Myers and maybe that is his English father. Canadian bring up. There's a certain there's a certain sense of silliness in being English. Like it is such a stuffy country on the outside but has like kind of this undercurrent of just being silly that I think is just so delightful for this. You know like you said Stuffy country right and his willingness just to be silly I think is always great yeah I think he's an his willingness willingness to completely commit to the character you know sometimes with the love Kuru for example. Maybe a little bit too far. I know you like that movie but I liked it when we were moving into our apartment and we are like two and a half bottles of wine. That's the funniest fucking thing I've ever seen which I would love to go. Watch that movie again and be like was was I talking about or say Oh this is just another Mike. This is like the Adam Sandler sort of him doing all these dumb characters in a dumb Wayne and is this. Does this actually work. I just remember him showing up on like talk shows as the love Guru and like the MTV Movie Music Music Awards I think it was as the love Guru and during this whole bit and for whatever reason it didn't work it like bombed on those and it just turned me off so much much from the move and it's like well you don't maybe maybe maybe maybe I don't need to see. I don't see a lot of a lot of love googlers down Hollywood Boulevard. No you do but just not from the movie you just there does it. I think it is a little bit unfortunate. That performance exist outside of the film because we get to see them ingratiating themselves in PR appearances and trying to make us love this offering this comedy offering and and you start to a familiarity breeds contempt for that for that character in that performer. Right like you said you. You feel like they have kind of a shelf life in egg timer and there's a the only goes for so long before it goes off and they don't have the the loyalty loyalty that we have for Dave Grohl canneries rights. Okay winfield. What's your second? My second film is airplane. Oh it's a great team. I thought about this great dumb film definitely thought about this. Yeah I cause the humor is so dumb dumb dumb from the onset is dumb like throughout the opening credits it is done when the guy says. Oh you know Captain over. Please please pick up the white courtesy phone and he picks up the red one and then says no the white one and then he's he's forced to pick up a different phone like every aspect of this movie. You know the sucker brothers really perfected this type of movie. Would this film and then continued to try to make this film again right varying degrees us the naked gun movies were fun but all the same that fain but not never quite got back to this really I think the first naked gun movies. Perfect perfect the originally the first one. I think it's right up there with with airplane. Well I think that there is equality. Maybe Naked Gun notwithstanding. I think there's a quality that they've tried to recapture its that. Never quite got there with like the other scary movies that they did with the other naked guns that they did with speed airport plane flying overhead going to the moon. It's a lot like when Mel Brooks had like that great run in the seventies and then tried to recapture it later on like with Robin Hood men or name. Any of his other movies that like came out at baseball's space balls was not very good. It really is not very good and they they have like the elements of those types of films in there that it just. It just doesn't hit in the same way it feels like you're treading the same thing. Almost you know Mike Myers ish with Goldmember right. Where like we've we've we've mind we pardon the PUN? But we've mind this well yes airplane I just yeah I. It's a movie like spinal tap that I could watch over and over are and like it's always gonna be money and it's just dumb humor. It's dumb body humor. It's dumb puns. Yes.

Oh my God like what if Google was a Chinese company or a Russian company. I never thought about that. Well I mean right. Isn't it great but you know if there's GonNa be dominant. Kings and Queens of the Internet is good that like our side one well. Yeah I mean I think having one I think we have one to release this battle but I mean go to China and watch a billion and a half the people operating a completely different world and you realize there's a lot of smart people out there. We haven't won but but but let me go. Let me go back to that issue of. Aren't you glad glad they're they're hours. I I think that there we we have to come to grips with the fact that our success the success of this valley successive us as individuals in Valley Craig's power and ultimately that power needs to be balanced against just social interests call that politics and I think that we need to understand that that balance is a dynamic balance and it's part of the contract we should expect that you've you build a behemoth of the of the reach and power of Google that ultimately it's going to run into a bunch of regulation and it should mean right. An unregulated market is not a capless dream. It's a capitalist nightmare because if you have have unregulated greed that is now unfettered in terms of power in scale. It's then hasn't there's no self correction action in that process. The market can't correct for that Libertarian might argue with you about that and I go back now libertarian and I think Libertarians by the way are not drawn to technology and creativity in the valley for the same reasons utopians beans were drawn with much more much more of a sense of of the of individualism rather than the social context utopians pins were facing and I think that that's led to a lot of the decision making that you see so you think about just to put a fine point on the motivations of Wozniak and jobs versus the motivations of of Zuckerberg very different very different. I can see you. I can see why Zuckerberg and on jobs reportedly never got along mean they would just see the world is to even though they both look like successful technology billionaires yeah young prodigies he's Yup. I could imagine jobs looking at Sucker Berg saying what. What are you creating right. I mean what is the impact of this. What's what's the what is the. What's the world going to be like at the end of this and I could see looking around going? I don't give so there was a real idealist in him. Oh Yeah I yeah no. I don't know in the end how that got rebalanced but jobs. I was at Lucas when we sold jobs pixar yeah. Actually I was actually at that point. I was outside counsel to them but I was representing that deal leukocyte obviously I rented a leukocyte and and when jobs jobs had just been kicked out of apple just been thrown apples eighty five ish. I think he thought he was buying a service says. We talked about this right right yeah so I think it's really important to realize is he. He he had a real sense of of of of what he wanted and to accomplish with Pixar. That was decades ahead of where the market was mean. We thought we had a rendering engine for making movies and stuff. He was looking looking for a way of sort of creating a platform of creativity again. Invisible being bigger not smaller is about enabling others not institutions to create. You know it's it's interesting. You say that Mike Maples junior says that legendary Jin dairy entrepreneurs create abundance and he he has his argument and I don't know put words in his mouth so this is this is my interpretation of what I think he says uh-huh but something to the effect of that essentially the old paradigm of economics is even wrong predicated on a scarcity of bananas when we can create abundance now in a way that sort of we can do ski scarcity isn't what it used to be made out to never was never was but but I don't I do think that there's always been this point of view. They're urban. It's I think more pronounced now that taking a view of of opportunities as ones of abundance changes the way in which you view things changed the way in in which you look at risk changes the tenacity and the commitment to the ideal so I think that's that's very important but I I I also believe that in the long term it's it's it is not this is not simply about abundance because we've created a lot of abundance. Here is one of the reasons I would say when the big reasons I moved from the East Coast West Coast in the eighties was because all the industries I saw on the east coast were built around scarcity and we're in in in felt like they need to extract value value. They were taking money from the pockets of customers not delivering a service to customers right. That's the mentality and suddenly competitively. You're fighting for Mike AAC reports in market share coke and Pepsi example but I looked to the west coast when I saw was people were creating value. They weren't extracting value. They can create alchemy and that made business very different because now you didn't look at it as predatory it wasn't it wasn't combat per se. It was a real sense of competition of ideas a competition of creative design envision that became the possibility so you were no the longer you weren't being compensated for. Reno decimal point out of the profit margin. You are being celebrated because you had some breakthrough idea idea that didn't exist before that hopefully was constructive now. Here's here's the thing at boy I wanna make though I used to feel like that was enough. I always felt like I was proud to be part of a business and industry that created so much value I would I would say that the what what we see now and behaviors in Silicon Valley in particular amongst the probably the most successful institutions. I think it behooves us. Ask One more question. What are we creating in. What impact will that have on the world. World is not good enough to come up with new ideas that you think people are going to buy and Rachel Chuck for. It's not good enough. I think if we're going to rely lie on on our our romance with creating abundance if we're going to rely on that and that and that ah fees my soul here. We're going to rely on that then. We have to ask the next question every time which is so what we've created this. Our people's lives better. Are they worse like they are right. Now I would argue what facebook and twitter created without a sense of of a of understanding of where that was going being Unin to you think we're worse off because of facebook and twitter I think we have I think we have a president who's not qualified to be President United States because of facebook and twitter and I think the world is worse off. I think our allies allies in Europe are worse off because of the man in the White House and one step removed the mediums that got him there and those mediums. I don't think we're naive. I think they were prisoners of their greedy business model and that model led them to overlook doc these weaknesses in their system unintended consequences are unforeseeable consequences and while we may not intend to do wrong if we adopt certain things in our business business model for instance where the customer is the product then you can the map out. I mean I would challenge them in a day to sit down with somebody and they could have worked out where this could possibly lead in what they should be doing to make sure it doesn't get there. Wow those are some big statements randy well. I believe them and you know I in eighty five eighty five thousand six when I was when I was looking at all the social networks. I'd sat down with read yeah Hoffman. We'd talked a little bit by Lincoln and I was just getting a sense what was going on there. I decided to join none of them. None of them so you can't find find me on facebook. I never joined linked in. I'm not on twitter and I did that not because it was convenient in fact it made eight life inconvenient for at least for a while. I did that because it was quite clear to me. Were going that. If I was the product then my dad was the asset asset in that be in suddenly I was exposing myself to world in a way that I wasn't comfortable prepared to do wow wow so. I mean most of us. Make the trade and here's the amazing thing I don't think most most of us knew we were making the trade and I certainly don't think most of us thought about it and I had this experience recently and I'm still a little freaked out by so I haven't done twenty three and me or any of that cause for exactly that reason I'm like you. GotTa be out of your mind to fucking pay somebody to take your DNA to monetize your DNA like that.

Clear sign up clear takes two seconds you go to the front line excellent excellent boom boom clear.

I do think convenience trump's confidentiality -ality at some some point. There's no question that there's a lot of data about me everywhere. I mean I'm sure from from my other activities. I do Amazon a lot. Their convenience Amazon is worth my giving them more. They've made it. They've made that work for me. So you make the trade and there I made the trade right. There are made the trade great. I also trust the I I have some trust in their desire to protect the data and they are capabilities of protected but aws gets hacked all the time if you don't hear about it that much but if you pay attention where you listen to grumpy old geeks one of my favorite podcasts the grump stirs are on.

Would you some program for this. <hes> garage band graduated and I was like this is what I love that song. That's what the song also describes every relationship. I've ever been exactly exactly anyway right. That's why I can get into it so much. Every relationship is is always a burning but here we are. We're still dancing. We're still doing it. I'm still gonNA run this crowned still smiling giving him a Bali. You can watch him singing into a microphone with his guitar. I'm sorry that's what you do all day long. You just sit around drink while you're by yourself of course and they've instituted this new thing where you can have two drinks per hour. That's a bunch of articles about that now okay but I'm just because they think they want people to not they don't want. They don't think that's not what the show is about. How Stupid Bravo show how stupid they like like wanted to still be about like the relationships and stuff so you know. Just try whatever it's doing this for twelve hours a day all day every day just talk so they want you to have truth serum but not too much true. Sierra just to to our all right. Let's go through this. I guess we'll do we have plead the Jeff. If you can't answer it okay go as far as you go. Play the fourth okay number one. Obviously I WANNA know this to you. Would you be the bachelor I yeah. I think I think when it comes down to that question you know people. There's a lot of back and forth on this. Actually I'm going to ramble on this one the time so <hes> I think this comes back to people being afraid of someone seeing they fully are on Mike in Public and trying to do the thing that they're supposed to do and that's a PR thing going back for years and years and years of course so people are always like well. I don't know it's it's like a really big responsibility and like it's the lead on a TV. Show right. It's not you're not becoming president of the United States. That's it says the same these days is the perfect launching point to the president after that. You should be the bachelor okay long as you know who you are and you don't think that that would change from being on the show if people are like not sure of themselves. They don't do it very much. I know who I am and so why would I worry about that changing me in some way. That's a super cool thing I can always go back and be a banker anchor at any time so I think it's I think it's ridiculous how much people downplay that and I think it's it's more about <hes> <hes> them trying to put a certain image out for themselves and again. That's stupid like we've had enough of that. People need to stop doing that stuff. I love the. You answer that way. I I just think people people I mean. Don't get me started the black bachelor.

Mike is Commenting on Demi. lovato's INSTAGRAM's Demi lovato posted a really great instagram post showing her body on edited edited and her cellulite cellular was the Hashtag.

He went with her to the furious flew over to Europe yeah for a funeral in when he dated like major majors they are. You guys are really huge celebrities today. It's so so while I think wells broke that barrier wells walks with the girl from Sarah. Yeah Okay I have a question. I think this is funny. How much sex actually happens during Bachelor in paradise. I think originally like that. I didn't do it the first time around like after the Bachelorette because people were like Oh. It has a bad rap. It's just like them having sex on the beach the whole time you're like. I'm not going to play in this. Extra may know at the time I'm celebrate celebrate now therapy and our bracelets. God come on this show. You can't take a joke. Osso fuck. You didn't even say anything just trying going to get her back by putting my hand on her leg and she won't know what to say but so there's there's booms keep it there. We're told you stop and they have the AC in them so that's where all I would be doing was fucking like that's what they see is. All I'm doing is fucking or or do you just go there. You pretend like you're going to ask for Bait so I'm in the boom boom room. masturbating we gotta talk about look so hot and every man is is beads of sweat. Mexico in this tape. It's it's in June so it's very quickly quickly and four hours a week kick its allies. June Mexico and it doesn't look like there's any AC in the bedroom areas right. No there's noise. Why why don't they put in the bedroom? Guess fans. This is like the resort that they have which is like buicks really is but but that's one of the things they just don't. Oh have but that's that's a whole thing in a lot of like Central America yeah. It's just like to open yeah exactly thank God. Can you imagine filming a TV show at a Marriott now that they saw on point you know I'm a huge iron macy. AC basically around the clock. I love my I should be more. I mean people are gonNA listen to episode. It's GonNa be like the Dan soder episode or who was really flirting with people. Oh really liked you for Dan soder well. He used to be his dad but he's not anymore. I do is do we need a new Dan now. He has oh come on whose current DAD become body trainer. Oh yeah obviously sorry I was thinking about the guests while we're talking about talking about dogs. I have to say this tweet this favorite tweets about when people were really on twitter like Derek for the Bachelor and it was two screen shots Derek of your follows on instagram and and she tweeted. Can we talk about how Derek recently followed twenty plus dog accounts in a row. This is the kind of bachelor energy we need in our lives and also someone please check on him so I was talking with my therapist. I knew your therapist is going to come into your dog. They're like you need to get bracelets first of all because the actor and star following dogs on Instagram I mean the thing is like going back to our thirst trap conversation. I I just got so tired of seeing the same shit all the time on my feet and it was like all people looking for attention and I mean of course this is people with dogs who are looking for their dogs hawks. Get attention but I mean attention. I look at that. Inches like makes me happy. I actually recommend everybody go find as many Arkansas'. You can count on your instagram feed and you you will it's my whole dogs and Corgis and there's like eight Kuala counts. I follow him. I can let you know if you're interested and also at one time someone did Google my follows and they just probably typed in like start to type the word Corgi and like they saw at least at least fifty Corgi so dare. Oh you are doing your dad now. People really want to know just in general like just like is like that. Was it okay back. He's like that. I think like something that a lot of people to things so first of all. There's so many questions about like how scripted is or like stuffing it is that's that's so many people asset and when stuff like that happens there will it was obviously a scripted scenario. No this is a unscripted show. That's like what reality. TV is technically called right is like unscripted yeah <hes>. This is an unscripted show. We are living our lives. There's zero guidance on. They are not like you know like. Can you try that again. Can you get in a different way. Okay No. They're not actors frigging work at a bank. I'm not when an actor side an actor who can cry on command in front of a camera but not bad rap like you see shows like the hills which have so. Da You never see them talking. It's a lot of voice though is like our dream talking but they'll be filming Heidi because it's all voice overs because there can you say that in a different way ah you hear a different tone. It's really talking. The hills even feels more scripted like I think the ads they're doing now like it feels different than the Bachelorette. Well that iconic like last seen a yea. We'll all the all the all the SATS staff and I thought that was so great exactly but I think that's what started it where people people think that and I think a lot of people going back. I've always called people out for this. They make they use that and they use that as an excuse to say all. That was the editing eh that is really not the case is really really hard to get get a bad edit and that is strictly seriously like that is just a bullshit did excuse and whenever P if if people say that in front of me to that have been on the show before I'll be like you know you have an excuse that is I had the same opportunity say the same stuff you don't get to put words in people's mouth like they say those things ensure like of course. There's like weird circumstances. Whatever stressful scenarios be still get to choose. Nobody's making those decisions for you yeah. You're still working on your mouth. This is not a question.

It was just a comedy of errors in the first half but they found a way to win and paper if you look at it twenty seven forty okay if it wasn't it's a major blow up but u._c.

I mean they didn't get appalachian state on them. So you know what good move on <hes>. Let's get through the non conference and we'll see what happens. <hes> let me let me let me throw this in there because you brought up something that i think is interesting and i think that mike aac alluded to this earlier. You know sloppy. Play is kind of part of the first month or so of n._f._l. And college football and also also you're seeing a lot of young guys out there on the field. We we've talked about a little bit. You know or auburn has a freshman quarterback bo knicks is out there. Asu has a freshman quarterback out there. There's a lot of freshman quarterbacks. There's a lotta guys kind of feeling their way on the field so mike mike said this earlier and i don't know you never really gave it a timetable mike but i would almost say me personally about the first three or four four weeks or so are going to be somewhat sloppy because you have a lot of young guys learning new systems. A lot of freshman quarterbacks a lot of skill positions with with gun guys too so mike in all honesty. About how long does it take for these guys to settle in and when will we be seeing a little bit higher quality game then. We're seeing these first couple of weeks for me. It should be about rick three. <hes> you know right around when the the league play place starts <hes> so it it it takes about that long with with any team but when you got these freshman quarterback invokes in guys noticed a rollercoaster by one week. They're gonna look good and jason daniels. He looked all right you know he wasn't he wasn't on fire or anything like that but he didn't suck you know so. It's going to be a little bit of time and and look one of the freshman quarterback that i forgot to mention that came out victory yesterday. Was that kid from boise state. They went down into seminal land and that kid yesterday eat. He definitely looked like <hes> like he belonged. Did he have parts in the game where he started a little bit yeah. What did he get. He got them a win and on the road at florida state and say what you want about florida state. It's still a big time legit win. <hes> on a power i five field <hes> so that that kid <hes> certain look like you belong yesterday and and and you know we're going to have to keep our eyes on on that kid.

Most people report that after a week or so of some mild withdrawal symptoms they're surprised by how little they missed a features of services like twitter or instagram the gramm the real problem and this surprised me is figuring out how to deal with all the free time this move toward minimalism suddenly injects into your life. Here's our reader name. Laurie described the experience of going through my digital declutter quote quote. I learned that a lot of actions in my day are mindless. We all have much more time than we think we do. We just fill it with lots of scrawling. Here's what I realized I am addicted to using my phone specifically using my phone to curtail boredom ordering free periods in my life my problem which is apparently common amongst people who have done this same digital fast is I didn't have a good downtime activity to engage in and quote another reader of philosophy professor named Anna Hannah put it this way quote. My was left with a lot of silence. What do I do in the evening after work when I'm home alone and really tired and it's raining hard outside in the beginning I spent a significant amount of time being bored? I am honored the house in circles looking for something to do and quote we convince ourselves that we use our phones to fill in occasional idle moments but stories like Lori Anna's point toward a more troubling conclusion. Perhaps we initially used our phones. is in this manner but over time the role expanded subtly pushing aside other more sustained activities in our lives like the once purely social drinker who ends up hiding empty beer cans from his family all this tapping and swiping has a way of shifting from an occasional distraction to a default behavior so when he finally remove it you're suddenly left the whole mess of silence just you and your feelings and an uneasy sense of not knowing what to do next which brings us back to Mike aac Faced with the sudden stretches of free time generated by minimizing his digital life. Mike decided to aggressively fill in these blanks he began by following my recommendation from chapter four to inject more solitude into his life. He deployed what he called the A._O..
