Why Would Jaguars Sign Tim Tebow?

"We are back final hour. It's been a fun show. We appreciate you being here. A lot of conversation with my Mike smith earlier. We also talked to dennis dodd. Another conversation predictably has been tim. Tebow we've given you a lot of reaction on that in the mike cannon bom from espn former gm jets dolphins. He's been here a couple of times. He had this to say earlier today. On keyshawn jay will and zubin about understanding the signing. I don't like it. I just don't see the upside in this move. He's thirty four years old. He would be a backup. I just don't know of thirty four year old players that can come in and be back place special teams and you're taking away a roster spot from hopefully a young developmental player that could grow with a young nucleus obviously led by trevor lawrence. And to me this is probably through the lens of urban. Meyer saying a decade. And a half ago tim tiba was the most competitive guy i've ever been around and he can help set the culture. If i was in that building what i would be pushing back saying coach. That may be true but in the nfl as you well know. Players needs to be led by players. They believed can take them to where they wanna go and as a backup tight end. I just don't think tim tebow would have that same credibility as he wants dave when he was the starting quarterback in florida. He also questioned whether tibo could even makes a team. I just don't see how he makes the team or urban and he's a really good coach he he's been historically great college but i just don't know he has to earn a spot and he's given a spot. That's gonna cause a big problem because players weren't have a chance to win and again to me just putting on my lens of a general manager and roster construction if you're not a starter in the nfl with only forty six players dressing you have to play special teams so my question. is tim. tibor thirty four years old going to cover cover kicks that remains to be seen. Now if he doesn't earn it does a totally different discussion. But i don't think you could sign him and say hey. He definitely has a spot on this team.

"My life later really fuck it up for the rest of us i mean. Don't get me wrong. I was also like falling asleep at bars of comedy clubs. So it's probably a good thing. But i took a break. Can i have another question. are you done. But you'll more weed or we'd still in the mail on. I'm smoking pot daily. God damn it. I wish i could smoke weed. I really real. I would gladly trade in a do bay for a bottle of wine. But i get so weird. I get so weird. I'm not one of those guys. I love weed and it's it's definitely changed my life for the better. It kind of took me away from being judgmental irish catholic upbringing kid to being a more empathetic more understanding far more flexible and elastic of a human being. And that's why it's worked for me. But i'm not one of those people who's like you just do it dude. It's like some people see. See the devil when they do we. It doesn't it doesn't work for everyone literally. I'll also eat all the plates in the house. That's how i get a cookie monster eating plates. It's actually precisely so cookie monster. Oh he was high. I just together. Nobody's known what these people have been pitching children for years off. Mikey really you're making me feel like i could do this shit like i'm like if i can't in from sexy justice skanky can do this the maybe there's hope for myself of. There's you're going to be fantastic at your your your your detail oriented. You care your fun being fun especially in the young younger part of a of a kid's life. It's like everything i mean. You know it's funny that you say you're worried that like it'll be the baby and taylor and that's it. Yeah it's kind of been that with me and the baby like he. He saying it quietly because they're like on the other side of the wall but he he loves me so much and is so obsessed and just like i'm his comfort blanket like i'm and it's because i'm so silly and like really i'm really loving and affectionate and i've just like but i'm just this big giant clown that that is around all the time and he loves it he loves laughing more than anything in the and it's completely like it's connected us from the moment he was born. So what you're telling me is. Maybe it will be me and baby ganging up on taylor donahue and that i'm here for she's in the in crowd i'm always on the periphery and i would love to serve up some karma to that bitch. We're.

"You're going to be thanking me. But ultimately we should all be thanking public goods. Now packed the podcast. Here's a question. Because i'm always so fascinated by this. What is so scary. Like i know what's scary about kids right. They're expensive as fuck and also like you have to like become unselfish to raise them properly. So that happens naturally really. Yeah it really does. Because i mean you still have a bit of your narcissism and you know i still fight with it every day. We're in a narcissistic business. So there's no there's no you're not caring about yourself is not scarce. It's going to continue to pop up so you certainly have that y'all part of my personality but the person but when you have somebody that you literally have to keep alive and your heart expands upon meeting them. It's like this new motivation and dedication to somebody like an end to my wife gets brought us to another level where i'm like watching her be pregnant. Go through the childbirth process. I'm like oh. I love you like more than i thought i loved you to the maximum of my ability before and now just seeing what you what you went through to have a baby and then also what. You're like a mother. I i love you. More than i thought was possible. That makes feels so much better. Because i literally verbalize this all the time with taylor so i always say you know i feel like when we have a kid..

"That. But they should have a host. I think because if you have a host billy crystal. He's great the hell. Does he. Like eighty five times or you know one of the greatest hosts of all time American treasure Chevy Chase. I knew your huge facet. Get Chevy Chase likable. He's such a good guy. Everyone loves supportive. I've been called so many terrible names for that episode of Irish. Goodbye because people are like he'll he's accomplished so much more than you ever will. And it's like yeah all right. I saw you say and this okay goodbye. There's host that with Mike Feeny. Are you guys like for Childhood Friends? Know we met Pretty early in comedy though quick. Quick friendship he does a story. Which is let's be real. It's not that uncommon experience of where he ran into Chevy Chase. A club or something like that. Yeah moving and he was. He went up to him and said big fan of your work inspired a lot of us and he is a wretched Aso. He's like what all right. I mean. Just a huge astle. He's a soft jawed loser. And you mentioned that you actually find him funny. Yeah I really like stuff. He is funny movies. But I don't have to like somebody personally lay. People are like people try to jam their own ship down your throat. And it's like now man like I can be a fan of somebody in separate that completely from their personal lives. It's just a fact that Chevy Chase has treated people. Sabar is funny. He ever hosted the Oscars. Can you imagine that? No because he's so if he showed up at the now they'd be like what the fuck is Chevy Chase because it reminded me so when he was at. Snl forty This guy from the Washington Post saw that it was like oh I was always such a huge fan of Chevy Chase but SOM- Adesina fourteen looked completely of sorts and like off just off so I told him that and he invited me over and they had this long interview and it was. People should look this up. Because it's really crazy. And Sal like he's so oblivious really this stuff and the guy says like Chevy. He tells him that. Like you know when you left this crazy voicemail and people heard it and thought you were an asshole. And he was like Pe- people Sunday was an asshole. I don't know part of it was oblivious but also part of it was really sad because he's like Oh don't don't show me who just hurt which is like you've been in this business so long like you're that sensitive right but that also shows where the motivation for his behavior comes from and just he's just a boy and then the guy says Chevy surely. You're aware that people feel this way about you. And I WANNA play you at Chevy said is I think that you will Part of those stand out to you. Here's what Chevy says when the guy says surely must be aware of this. I find it hard to believe that you don't understand that there's this perception of you as being that way. It's jealousy. I've said that to you before it's I can't really say that. Did you say that writers writing anything? Negative is jealousy. Yeah I did. What kind of jealousy? I'm funnier than them. I guess. Maybe I'm considered good looking. Yeah there you have it I'm Chevy go yourself okay. So he says that I swear to God. This is not some photo that I looked up of Chevy chase looking crazy. This is from. He says I'm good looking. Yes this is the for. This is him right after saying that. We'll post this to the facebook page but Chevy Chase looking like this. I'm good looking. He looks like Chevy Chase. Funny Farm. Can you imagine he's first nice to dress up for the interview Chevy but totally oblivious to the real world like he was good looking maybe once during caddyshack I guess but like he thinks he's GonNa looking and you think he like a candle with claim to the side of his neck. Yeah I mean it. Looks like he's wearing a skin airplane niccolo times we should all be so lucky Yeah I mean I guess that's like that sounds like two things that sounds like self preservation a little bit like a a wall. He's built up to protect himself from anything negative overtime and it also sounds like he was hot shit and was told Yes for a number of years and rarely heard no and he just hang onto. He hung onto that to be his world. Like he's like okay. I like this version of things. I'm now see I'm looking through this filter forever delusional. Yeah Yeah Sad yes. Yeah of course was on top of the world for a while. Then he is funny everything he does now. Still Right is pretty funny. He was funny on our community It's too bad he was just but like he didn't think he was being an adult. That's what you get from this interview to. He talks about like you know tried to be part of that cast and I was issued as what he says right. I mean here's the thing so this is what we don't know right. This guy was famous in the seventies through the eighties through the nineties. All the way through now he probably has a touch of aspects. I would assume right. He has because it's it seems he's disconnected from perceiving emotion. A feeling towards him or having like any type of like you know rational honesty like we're having right now so it might be just. He's on the spectrum. And he has he's incapable of perceiving. But he really. Has You saw how? He just looked like their eclipse of him on Letterman. From like ten twelve years ago Any still looked okay. You looked older but he looked okay. Some is right now. Maybe he's on some meds on a bunch of pill got dementia. I Dunno not make light of that but like it's kind of sad. Don't let this happen to you. Tail for sure. Yeah which is also a reason to for me personally to stop. Drinking is because I see people still drink as hard as I was drinking and a lot of them have no jaw and like a lazy like somehow alcohol leads to lazy is Feeble Alabam Style. But the funny thing is that the. Guy. He left that message to He. First of all this was all explained on Jim. And Sam I think Jimmy. And what's the guy's name? Do you remember the perplex showrunner for community? His name is Dan Harmon. Dan Harmon was the show runner for community. You're listening to the next best thing on Radio Free Brooklyn. Yeah he has his own podcast but he says that he gets blackout drunk to do the podcast so clearly. He's not Chevy's not the only one with the problem. I right yeah all right so I know we're running out of time but I WANNA I ended up with always either doing a game show or asking a book or asking questions from this book. Oh Nice random ass kids book of questions. It's completely ridiculous. I like that. Well one is actually. I'll just pick three random ones ready near you go when someone says you're just like your mom or dad do you like it. Do you try to be more like your parents or less like your parents. Well Yeah I love it when they say I'm being like my father which is actually a part of my special the whole joke about that. How Ran Which is very fun nuclear codes? That'll be out individually as well. You don't like that. No that's not my favorite when people say I'm like my mom I like that. Because she's she's very sensitive and And an artist herself. Very smart right. When's the last time you felt completely happy? What made you feel that way? I guess what son. Yeah no no yes but the last time I mean you know I've I left him an hour ago. I mean the most potent times that I'm really happy or Yeah I I've taken to do this thing and I don't know if other parents do this but I'll I'll like hug my son and be like remember this. Remember this right now. Remember this forever. It's never gonNA be. He's never going to be this young again. Smell them like hug like all this. I'm just like 'cause eventually I'm going to be an old guy if everything goes great right So I I'm going to have these memories to hang onto and I just WanNa like I wanNA iron them into my fucking subconscious as much as possible. It's beautiful yeah you know Kristie Seven. Oh you mentioned him. He's one of your best friends. He on something I saw him. Do it might not like Internet asks random questions He mentioned like four times. He has high cholesterol high blood pressure. He's GonNa Die Young. Yeah he must really think that. I think he's a HYPOCHONDRIAC for sure. A blood pressure machine in his living room. Do you worry about that ever I did? I used to talk about dying young a lot really a lot before I had a kid and now this is like this is you know and it sounds. Shitty to say but I felt like my wife could have handled herself by died. It would be tough for her and you know all that stuff but before before son got here. I had no real sense. Oh fucked up but I have no like I have no need for me to be here. I get it you know what I mean like. There's no real need. Everybody would be hurt my family and they'd be emotionally. You know broken but somebody relies on me to live at this moment so You know the the idea. It's one of those things when your wife is pregnant or at least when mine was I I kept having dreams about dying and about leaving her alone with the baby and like and what that would be like for. My kids grow up without his father. And how that would be my version of fucking up as a father and so like you know. I'm doing my best to stick around for now as long as possible. But that's Joan rivers tells the story about how she I think because her husband screwed or over an kill themselves. Yeah she was really low and she was banned from the tonight show and she couldn't get a job and she was ready to kill herself but she said bef- the night she was going to do it. Here dog came up and jumped on her lap and she was well. No one else will take you in. You're too much of a bitch who depends on you need. You is a huge beautiful thing. Yeah and now you know that's not to say I was in My wife needs me and I need her. I I don't know it just clarified itself. Once my son came here and I was given just a brand new focus which is great. That's awesome. Do you think mortgage. I don't know it's it's really hard to to be apparent it's written especially and then continued to do. This and my wife owns her own business. So we're we're doing give and take childcare and it's It's difficult having to I can imagine Just exacerbate the city. Yeah my sister's having a kid now my older sister so we're gonNA move close to her so hopefully that'll be like cousin siblings and take the pressure off of having to have another one's great. Yeah that's that's nice to have family around. Yeah Yeah I love my sisters. I love my mother. They're they're so important to me. It's ridiculous well this has been. This is like the most serious I've ever heard you be. I hope you don't know I hope you're alright with it. Of course get to know you punch it up a few times.

"Every TV show. It's like good stuff and it wasn't even funny right. You're you're you're you're just getting like affirmation captor it's like if that's what you want then by all means are you a fan of Bill Maher. I like Bill Miller. I don't mind him I think he's he's a smug count as much as anybody else and I certainly have like. You know like point. He does it he does that. He's kind of like the king of that Mark Neural. Yeah but I think I'm I'm of the mind and I know. This is an unpopular opinion in the platforming era. But I'm of the mind that you wanNA shine a light on on people that you don't agree with because you want to show people what's what's fucking out there like this is what people believe and it's not going away if you don't show it there with the Internet and all this stuff. They're getting their literature out there. They're getting their beliefs. And honestly stifling. The speech isn't doing anything but making their cause verified in my opinion. I hosted a conspiracy podcast for years and it was to the point where I didn't agree with mostly anything. My co-host believed I mean he believed in flat. Sandy Hook didn't happen. The Boston marathon was a coordinated event. Nine eleven wasn't even planes that hit the towers it was direct energy weapons and Holograms so that was a practice for me. So you hosted the show with Alex Jones more or less. How Dave Weiss? He's still big in the community. He still out though my God. He believes all that stuff he sure does. Yeah which at the time I think. His biggest failing was not getting me on the side of the conspiracy. Because I was I was up for sale. I mean there's certain things like the JFK thing. I can get on that board because I've been to the depository I've looked out the window and it seems impossible to get a shot off and like you can convince me other ones like the Sandy Hook thing. No plus they don't listen to To back and forth. So it's not A. It's not a true debate where you know. They say a lot of the sandy hook deniers. Don't even believe that it was an active school. My wife's cousin went to the school. She knew one of the little girls at died when presented with this evidence. I was told I was a liar. And it's you know it is what it is so you understand that there's no real that's the that's why debates kind of dead now but I also I didn't like there were episodes that got clashing and angry in. I wanted to show all of it warts and all because it's like that's kind of how to talk like this. You know you get in fights you come back and then you know him and I weren't good enough friends to mend the fences as it was but we're still cordial. We're still fine. We talk to each other. There's no hate in that way. I just can't even talk to the press. Never again right. And in my opinion you know conspiracy is is more or less concern corruption tangible real corruption. Where it's like if you look at nine eleven. Do I think that was set up by George W Bush? No I certainly do not do. I think it was used in leverage to get into wars that we didn't belong in. Yes I do do I. There's of course there's all these like there's all these different things that like you don't have to live in Narnia. To be a conspiracy theorist you can like the fact that Epstein is coming out and all this stuff is playing out on a mainstream media level and then they're actively trying to stifle it. It's like okay like maybe pizza gate wasn't a specific homerun but it could be indicative of a larger problem. There are a lot of the big problems God if I mean a but them bill. Let's Talk About Your special filmed at the comedy. Cellar did yeah did it with it. Totally independently and ends available for free on Youtube. Did you in like a you know throughout there are guys like Colin Quinn? Jim Norton Rich Voss appearing. Really singing. Your praise Ozzy Kelly Robbins idea to that was mine. Yeah you told him to like really make me look good because I mean the story of how I got in at the true. It's true yeah I mean I ramped it up of course when I say Colin Guinn so the way it happened was Colin Quinn unfortunately had a heart attack I was hanging out with Krista Stephania one of my best buds and Liz the manager had no one. There was nobody there. It was like six thirty on a Tuesday so she just asked me. If I could do some time I panicked. I said yes and Great set set up an audition eventually got in the club so even though I know the comedy cellar has been the home base of a lot of comedy stories from crashing to Louis to even this week at the comedy cellar their own show on comedy central. It's like I had this. I had a personal story. That is pretty great and a connection to all these guys who I looked up to as as a young guy before I even did comedy that I could make this happen to make this work and film at at the seller. I you know to me. It was my. It's like it's the best thing I could possibly make. I was just very very happy that I ended up getting that you've been able to see you've been trying to get an audition and you couldn't or no I. I was one of those guys that was like when it happens happens. I wasn't I was worried about it. Of course and it was something that I wanted to achieve but at the same time I knew I wouldn't achieve it by hanging out there so I was there sporadically. I happened to be there for dinner early because I knew it wasn't going to be a hotbed of COMEDIANS. I looked up to and had to feel embarrassed in front of you know but I I. I was working. I was out getting better. And that's that's how I chose to spend my time and so and you when you guys filmed it did you. I was GONNA say so. It's independent it's available for free. I was GonNa say that because you didn't WanNa pit sell it to anybody. No no no. I answer that early. I make no qualms at like it just wasn't being offered and My first album did really great for me. It's it's got over. Four million streams on Pandora played. I think it just kicked in and I got clips from that all over my instagram. My Youtube Youtube is my cannon comedy Instagram is at I M my cannon but like it's all you know all of this stuff is for a constant onslaught of content. That's what people are need. At this point they want the the onslaught Schultz Andrew Schultz kind of set the market. For like all right just because you put it out for free doesn't mean there's value to so once you especially considering who I got involved and how it looks. I mean you know Mike Levin the guy who directed it and shot it he he's like a R- a real filmmaker made it look like like almost like a fincher movie lady. I it looks beautiful and so I I wanted as many is on. That is humanly possible. So if I wasn't going to get the offers I was GONNA put it on Youtube just to be shared and re and have as many people and it'll pick a ton of people are watching it and it will pick up traction and then maybe Netflix will be like. Oh Shit exactly. Yeah didn't do this. And maybe they won't you know who knows but it's is not about waiting for me. I'm eleven years in at this point. I all I WANNA do is have a you know the sounds Dushi but a body of work to reference so people do happen upon me. They're like Oh shit. This guy has two hours and and this and this and he's got all these youtube things and like at least we have you know it people what. Hbo Even said Like we want we want to addicts not subscribers right. So it's like you put shit up. Yeah and you want people to get addicted to you as a comedian right so then they come out and see live. Are you a Conan? O'brien Van Damme. Yeah I love because he talks a lot about his body of work now it was really important to have some ownership over it and just creat create create create and keep creating out there so that people have this wide array of stuff to see of his and they can pick their favorites. And it's just with them and stuff like that I'm not proud of a lot of my body. Of course I mean there's bad episodes of every single podcast that I've done there's bad episodes of I used to host a weed news thing where I was talking about. You know the current day of yeah the laws of marijuana like every day it was a weekly thing but you know I had to write seven new minutes every single week so it served its purpose at guy better at writing exam. You know it's it's led to what I am right now and the special itself has about thirty thirty two minutes of standup on it and then I So the album that life begins. The album is coming out February. Twenty first and that has Twenty-five additional minutes of STANDUP. Oh Nice so. I was hoping that it's like you know you put this piece out. Its own contained thing. It's got these guys on it. It's not it's not a normal comedy special. It's a thing right and then if you WANNA listen to the hour and what that says like you get the full hour February twenty first you know. Life Begins Audio. Whatever and also GONNA start rolling out clips same same as Andrew same as every other comedian on instagram on Youtube and you know just flood the fuck and market. I want as many people to be aware of what I do on stage as possible because at this point I'm finally proud of it. It's hard to constantly be turning. That's a lot of work. Sometimes I don't think people realize like especially now 'cause there's instagram. There's facebook there's twitter. There's so many different platforms that you have to keep them all up to date and all that stuff and it's like unless you have an assistance of discount or like a team even well. Comedians at this point which Andrew Schultz does have a team. There are comedians. That are doing well enough to have team. And that's like that's the goal kind of because then you almost operate as your as a solo studio right. You can kind of leverage road gigs. If you don't need an agent you're like y'all going for a door knowing that you're going to sell out right you know people are going to take that read that risk all the time the clubs. Because they don't really have to front any money right. So that's that's the goal is like you know a lot of people. Just gather these people in these people and eventually when you can put a team in place then all you have to focus on is comedy which is nice. Yeah but right now. I'm I'm on the PR agent. I you know. I just got rid of my personal appearance agent because they have no creative thoughts how to leverage my you know the success of my special and all the streams that I've gotten online and stuff like that so I got rid of them because I can accomplish what they're currently accomplishing and give up any and not give a yeah exactly You also the Irish Goodbye podcast. Which bleeds into did you watch the Oscars a little bit here and there. I've seen clips. They were horrible. I mean I'd I'd never have high expectations but how do you feel about them going hostess? This sounds random. I think I think they should. I think that's the move a host. I mean no I like a host but I don't think people can handle it like I. It's just everybody is or I shouldn't say people because people are just going to respond and then give up and not care about it in three days but the networks that are just spineless fucking `fraidy cats for the most part just can't handle any negative backlash or comments on what they're putting out. Yeah Yeah but Kevin Hart. That was weird because they didn't actually fire him he just he stepped down. Yeah but regardless like this year it was like if you're going to go hostess. The only reason to do that is to maybe save time but they didn't. Instead of like going from presenter to presenter they had random people come out have to introduce themselves explain why they read the Oscars and then present the presenters. It was ridiculous. That doesn't make sense but of course we should have a voice of God doing or some. Yeah or should just be like I think maybe Nikki glaser did it was either a TV show or an award show or something but she was the voice of God not in the room just kind of introducing the last thing and that if you're GonNa do that for the Oscars and go host..

"I've had that on both again. Both ends of the spectrum where you know some some young grandma will come up to me in Brooklyn and tell me what I've just said I have no right to speak about and I just say Okay Leo. That just means that they're trying to turn the world into autobiographical and nobody can fictionalized anything or inhabit another culture or another person's perspective which I actually think widens the gap and makes us more like like almost like we're looking at each other through zoo like class. Absolutely it's fucking were. It's ridiculous because the way I grew up was to completely ingratiate myself and other cultures. I played basketball. I was with everybody every and your funk anybody and I'm from New York so these people that are telling me that I have no right to talk about this. Don't have the life experience I have. They do not. So it's it's just a moronic thing to say. What a crazy thing to say. You don't have the right to speak about. I don't care what it is. That's a crazy and then on the same tip I performed in In Charlottesville Virginia. Oh like weeks. After that ship two weeks I was in a theater. My first big theater Gig. I don't know why they booked me there because it was like you know a calm everyone down. Yeah exactly but like I made a joke about idiots protecting the statues and stuff like that just because I was like. I'm here. Fuck this I'm GonNa make a joke. I find this whole thing to be ridiculous and of course there's like three good old boys telling me that. I don't know my history and so I leaned in and I'm like what what history of my missing did you guys win right. Yeah am I am I am I not privy to information that has been given over hundreds of years since you're fucking defeat you you absolute participation trophy losers you guys call the northeast fucking coddled pussies and yet you're idolizing something losers get the fuck. Outta here there okay. So this is a story. I tell and I've told that a bunch but it just stick with me because it hits me off so much but the most trouble trouble the most negative feedback I ever got was when I was telling a story on this show about it was a story about. I'd been at a Broadway show or something and these people in the road ahead of me at intermission. There were like people sitting in that row and their friends in the row behind me. And then like they're kind of scattered because you know if it's a packed house. Yeah and they were talking to each other over right through people and like screaming like they were speaking so loudly. It was just hilarious because it was like it was just everyone felt so awkward and weird and I told the story and I did an impression of what they were doing. Now they happen. I didn't impression of how they sounded. It sounded exactly like them. Yeah okay of course. Now they happen to be Asian okay but that wasn't the point of the story. I never even mentioned that but you could probably tell because I sounded exactly like them. Yeah so then I got a lot of people saying well you know you. Doing that. Voice was totally racist and Blah Blah. The store look. I did not say at the end like so. Yeah fucking Asians are always loud and obnoxious to do with no what they sounded like they had been from Texas. You probably would hurt me southern drawl if it doesn't matter I was doing an impression of them and do impressions of everything and I don't know if it sounds like them like that person especially but it sounds like an exaggerated version or something. Of course it wasn't fucking racist and you're you're just doing voices are funny. It's just like you can't tell me otherwise and it's like I can't help it either way. Maybe the funny or not. That's just how I've always been the end. My special are two got like it's in the credits but two guys. In the second reporting were speaking full volume Mandarin Oval Fish market volume. Bandari US respond to him. I didn't know they were speaking. The mics didn't even really pick them up all that great but like they sounded to me and I've said this before and I haven't gotten any flack for it but I'm looking forward to it. They sounded like the Mars Attacks Aliens. Because I'm doing a set and I'm focusing on what I'm doing but I'm noticing them and I'm thinking about my next joke and I'm thinking if I want to interrupt the show and I'm like do I come at them like I already got the first one in the bag. Do I do this? What do I do next bit next bit? They're too loud. They're now distracting people. All these thoughts are playing in my head and all I hear. Is that that that that's literally killed what? I hear from them but it was like what I found out later was that they were speaking Mandarin. Even know I did I kind of. I kind of knew that they weren't speaking English but and and they were Chinese but I was like. I didn't know that they didn't speak English at all. Wasn't the point right. Like the point was they were being loud. Exactly that's what you were responding and the point in the retelling of the story is to let you know a humorous way that what I was going through in hearing from them right. I'm not calling them. Literal Mars Attacks Aliens. It's like it just pisses me off so much because it was like you first of all if anyone had listened to my show more than that one story they need like. I know that I'm not you know. The story was not so he. So basically Fuck Asians about people were just oblivious story being Larry had they been whatever. It doesn't matter German. I would have done a German. Of course which would be fun as well I might. Yeah maybe I should have. I don't know people would have liked. That better. Doesn't matter but like really you're sitting there waiting to like yes just goofy. I think it's empowering people I think they They feel heard when they have something negative to say about somebody. Because you know the entire Abang right wrote this like sweetheart letter or article about my album or about my special and like me as a comedian and it's like it almost felt like I hired them to write it but it was so positive and like anything you could dream of being written about you in an article. Of course it gets no no real. It got shared around a few times or whatever but had that said Mike Cannon piece of Shit Net flicks at no comedy central said. No because he's a racist horrible asshole. That article would have been huge huge. And it sucks. It's the reality of things people are like. Why is the news so negative and it's like because that's what you fucking idiots will watch. No kidding go. Yeah they're awful. Anyway you hit on the town and actually you were like. Why weren't you a gay? You played a gay guy. Did have a homophobic bitch. I sure did which my father also weirdly like all these heads. Blind spots came later in life because he was like you know black friends and gay kids in theater in like around around it and bringing these people around our house so it's clear he doesn't have the hatred in his heart but all that stuff like I guess developed at a like frustration of losing his own relevance. Like you know after we know. But he's like he's like if I want to know my dad's political opinion. I just look at James Woods twitter really. I don't know it's such a bizarre transition that people can take it really is. I think you'll evolve that way. I hope loved like James Woods. Yeah exactly but it does give you a nice excuse for why. Your career didn't pan out the way starting so if I could just fail but then you know say it's because of reverse racism right exactly and it is probably for sure But when did you say you were performing seven high school and you did sports? When did you know that you wanted to pursue comedy especially stand up? I would say probably sophomore is so this is how Sophomore Year of college where my first year is again. You can take this out of context but this was purely what it was my first year of college. I had such an identity crisis I I went fullerton. I like all of my black teammates. They basically bought me my clothes. I had Pele jeans with patches on it I triple X. Long white you know t's with white on white air force once. I had a shaved head with the lineup when I went to clubs with my teammates. Girl Sodas Puerto Rican one or two white kids on our team so I rolled deep with my boys and I and they all thought Puerto Rican and then the following year I went like full Ashton Kutcher white just pendulum swung trying to find myself. What the fuck who. All right hired of being just a face in the crowd I was just. I just didn't know who I was or what I was doing. And like and everything around me was breaking down so I needed to establish an identity. You know I need to like really grip onto something. Feel comfortable so I went. You know. Full Ashton Kutcher White. But then I was. I was also studying journalism. Communications and TV production and audio production and stuff like that and my the head the head of Communications Mr Carol a rock and Community College. This guy told me because I was politically inclined at the time too so I my my teacher was. Hey Man you remind me of John Stewart this is like oh two or three or four. I got four and John Stewart was kind of just like really really catching steam around the second election. The Bush you know the second Bush election and I'm like almost giving like spoken word lectures to my teammates about why they shouldn't vote Republican. Yeah it was. It was crazy. Wow but so he he would give he told me this and then he gave me tapes of John. Stewart to watch so I watched John Story not seen him not really. I knew who he was through big daddy and some some other stuff and I most known for exactly yeah and and but I became obsessed with the daily show like obsessed with it and I watch so much of I watched every single night and in that in that moment I was like. I'm going to be a comedian. I just I just knew. I wanted to be a comedian. It's like just one dad figure told me I was good at something and sent me on a path and I was like you got it. Pops that makes it makes a big difference. Yeah Yeah that's interesting because I was actually going to mention so in your special you don't go into politics at all. Not at all is that unintentional. Yeah just have nothing to add but but you did. You were interested in it for sure that you're still interested in it. I mean I still follow it. Yeah I have my opinion these exhausted it let me people talk about it. It's all you hear about nowadays. Yeah and you know the the idea that people want to control the way. I work the way anybody works and tells you that you need to talk politics. And it's like no listen if you listen to my shit like you just said. I do discuss social issues. Yeah I it's in there but I'm from a personal place so you got to actually listen to what the fuck I'm saying right to pick out you know whatever you WanNa pick out from it. But the thing is it's embedded in there. I think it's pretty clear the way I think about things but But it's it's it's in symbol. I don't have to be like and this orange. Fish is lighting the country on fire. It's like how many fucking everybody. How many people do you want to hear that frame that insecure in your own belief that you need to be reaffirmed on a daily basis? Joke joke could you possibly make about like? He's also kind of the point where now it's almost like. I mean it's so fucking dark and he's funny. He's funnier than a lot of comics especially comics that choose to spend their sixty minutes on him angry. Yeah like about your preachy. Or You know. Getting your little snap applause. It's like good for you. You made a point that I've heard four thousand times on every talk radio.

"I only know that because of the departed but I yeah but but like like my dad I you know after physical violence in the house and stuff like that. My my little sister went to therapy because she was acting out a little bit. And my dad and my mom went with her one afternoon and my dad is for you know within ten minutes four inches from the therapist face screaming about how therapy is bullshit. And he's like frothing from the from the mouth and like sweating and Shit and leave. It was a real good guy. My Dad is like it's weird because if you met them you'd like him because he's very charming very smart gregarious like therapist but not to not to people. He loves supposedly. Yeah I mean you know his fan but then again you track down and he was abused and like you know. His house was Fuckin- was crazy. And I never. He never told me about the mental illness his father faced and in subsequent years. My father faced so never learned about that stuff until I was out of college so I thought I was the crazy family member. That was depressed so you know I'm I'm I'd get sad at genesee. A Walk at the out. The back of the dorm go to the women's softball field like throw fists at God for thirty minutes like while crying and then come back in and be like all right. Well did I mean did therapy because like therapy help alone? Did you need medication? Therapy helped For me personally I like it did but I mean I probably would benefit from from medication. Maybe I don't medicating I definitely sell. Okay Yeah Alcohol would help until the next day. Like then it's worse compounds. The problem it makes me more depressant makes me more self hating it gives me more anxiety. It's like it's it's the ultimate SP- accelerator To all of those terrible Fiona. Yeah but in the moment it's great. Yeah Yeah it's the best social I still love it. You haven't done it even. Yeah even no matter how many times it scorns me. Do you miss it? Of course? Yeah I mean I miss it mostly socially but I but again I'm an active pot smoker. So I don't like they are for sure. Yeah once more contemplative. Like when you're at the like what you're doing a set or something. Are you tempted to drink? I mean because it's not because it's weird because you chose to stop. It's like you were in the program right so you could but I would disappoint myself and your wife maybe at this point but it no but she never to picture new she never never did. She was just like she was at first when I told her I wanted to do it in solidarity. She's like you don't have to do it like don't you know whatever she's like you better? She's like you're going to have to turn it up once the KID is here. So if you WANNA have like you know some drinking nights or whatever like you know by all means and I did the reason why I didn't go. The full nine months is because we went to New Orleans when she was two months pregnant and I had like a Blair it out weekend which was great with all my friends and our friends and yeah it's great but it but I mean it shows a lot of self-discipline that you could start shows the extreme people I mean. It's like you know you hear people who are in the program or whatever and like every day is a struggle and they could easily fall off without their sponsor and without this step. I'm just competitive. I think at this point. I don't want to break your streak. Yeah mostly with myself and I've been to AA. Like when I was I went to a it with my dad when I was four from the time I was forced drinking. No I grew answering reasonably because I do know people that weren't four but we're like six. The first time they had some Like a beer or something like that. Yeah like crazy fucking Irish Bronx Shit but I know I've been. Yeah so I I'm like I'm well versed in the program. Sorry Dad was going. Yeah yeah a lot. He was like he was a groundbreaker. Who was the first one to bring his kid to a and then it turned into like other parents were like Holy Shit like this counts towards custody. They brought their kids and yeah we basically a daycare where we had our own support group. Slamming fucking juice boxes being like would your dad do? Wow Yeah so I mean that's surprised like that didn't bring you closer together. No no because we'd never talk about it again like even four. Yeah but throughout life like I even went with them when I was twenty one and he thought I had a drinking problem but like I went. I went to to like soothe his wishes. Or whatever and all I did was all it did was reinforced the fact that I was just in college and drinking because these people were like so. I'm on the you know. I I wake up a dual bumper coke to get my day started and have some coffee. Maybe an egg or something like that. I get on the train. I have a tall boy in a paper bag on my way into the city. Once I yeah I do a bumper coke in the bathroom right before I get off at Grand Central then. I walked from Grand Central to my office. But there's a bar that I like to go for a drink. Stop get a drink to a bump of coke. Go to the to the office work till lunch. Go to all the shit until happy hour. All Coke all drinking all day and I'm like how they live. I don't know and I'm like that's not me dude like I don't even have. I have a little bit of that right. And that's because I had a friend once who had to go to anger management which you know he would like get in fights and stuff but it always seems a little weird to me and he. He just said that like the second within ten minutes of being there he was like it was very apparent to him. Yeah that like Oh this is what real anger provide right. He would be a typical drunk kind of meat head. I mean these guys were telling stories about like this one. Martha cut me off and so I ran out of his back then. I still thought he needed like yeah. Hang like weird. That's that's why comedy is so great because I have those thoughts but I just turn it into a bit right because I understand there. No of course not because I understand. It's ridiculous and it would be costly that mostly son to be going to the slammer again in high school. I knew you played sports in the start another production of on the town or did how did you know that? Same interview. Hell Yeah. That's why meeting Maureen McCormick. I do remember that but I've spoken to I mean I. I've spoken to a lot of people on that show in particular and I also don't know because I run into some listeners from Jim and Sam on the road especially they're all so good. It's so supportive. But they'll be like I know this about you in this and I'm like what I know. Forget the filled at this point. Hundreds and hundreds of hours of airtime. But you never feel like you're talking about really personal stuff. But they just come out actually are a really. I'm very I'm very. I try to be as open and honest and personal as possible because it's not in my family's lineage. So I think I'm almost like I'm where the pendulum swings way too much. You know and hopefully at then like kind of corrects itself with my son or whatever jam but you also don't worry about like saying anything that exposes you that you didn't mean. I've cancelled myself. Oh well that's actually because we're going to talk about your special but like I noticed that you are aware of the wo- Kness Yeah. You know that could get that has gone people in trouble but you kind of navigate it in a way. Kinda. Poke Fun at it. So that it's like you're recognizing it which counts for something but it's not because you hear comics asked all the time nowadays like Oh do you worry about you like Tame your showdowns that you don't get in trouble which I hope no one does but you know people do I guess pussies well again. I guess because it's like that's a sense of the word not in the actual vaginal writing strong by the but nobody really like. Can you think of a quicker way to kill a set or like an act then going through and be like oh? I got a team this down and change this word. No I mean I think I think a lot of empty complaints. The for the most part is because live audience. I mean there is sensitivity that exists but that for sure and that exists on both ends of the spectrum. If you do a trump joke some people are going to get upset if you do a joke. That punches down so to speak People are going to get upset so upset. Of course so why? Why change it. I I'm aware and I have my beliefs. And if you WANNA ask me on serious level what my beliefs are. I'll feel free to ask if to answer it. Nobody why would you care? Because I'm a fucking comic so what my job is to notice everything I think and then to take it apart that way and figure out a way to make it work so I am not a PC guy right. But I figured out I think a way to make it palatable in a reasonable way where the intent is clear and I'm not just like you know blacks like well enough fighting for that. That's the key like to me. It's about when we just parse words as if we're just reading a transcript and taking this word and that word in kind of like picking out what could be offensive and why it is offensive as opposed to hearing the context knowing the person who says if you like you can tell if someone says something with real venom or when you give a chance go people don't WanNa know they don't care the fact like that what I just said you know blacks or if written down sure looks horrible and anybody could take that any type of way which I'm fine with. I don't even give a fuck out at this point. It's like all I want really is to be in as much control of my career as humanly possible. That's why I put thing out on Youtube. That's why work with people like eight hundred pound gorilla on the audio side of things. They they never give notes. They tell you to do what you're going to do. And all I want is to sell tickets and move and perform live. That's what I got into comedy for. It's not a Ho sexy versus Gangqi. That's a great check and it was Super Fun and like it was a wild thing to talk about now in interviews but all I wanna do is right standup. Do stand up for people that went there intentionally. Yeah Okay so let me have you ever got. Has there ever been an incident where someone's come up with? That wasn't funny. Of course. Yeah I mean almost..

"Cannon all right so Mike Cannon is my guest today thanks for coming in. Thanks for so you're native. New Yorker Actually and you have a brand new special out which was great. Last night I question. Yeah is there any relation between you and the incomparable Nick Cannon Just beside besides our love for Eminem Marshall mathers. Now there's there's very little surprise. It's weird because I started in like uptown rooms. And kinda like Hood rooms as they were called at the time And so a lot of them. A lot of the hosts would Would try to submarine me and immediately be like this next guy. Nick Cannon's cousin to see there's just you know you guys look a lot alike but you but you are born and raised in New York and at one point you lived. I think outside of West Point I did. Yeah Highland Falls Fort Montgomery where your parents military no now. My Dad. My parents were just looking for cheap where to place to live while also being able to commute into the city because my dad was a stockbroker. I think early. On at that point he was more of the pump and dump will Wall Street type and then he moved into legitimacy Jordan Belfort. He did not but I think I'm pretty sure I was in his office when one of his co workers got carded out by the FBI. Really Yeah I mean I. I went there a few times. And it's one of the more I mean. That movie kind of really nailed it because every other word was content. You know I it was. It was pretty exciting atmosphere to be in as an eleven year old right and I was like. Yeah I WANNA be these guys. So that was aspiration. Broker that makes me bumps at thirty three and have a heart attack by thirty five. And you're almost there I am. You have a year left right. Sure do yeah. So you'll goals at the time of life goals there still time. I know you've got a one sister and some brothers right. I have two sisters my brothers I grew up with a really tight. Knit Group of friends and we've had several of US die so we're yeah we're kind of brothers in brothers in arms is that of like drugs not drugs lot of drunk driving and some cancer weirdly enough like young twenty-three-year-old cancer it's terrible it's brutal and those when you say brothers now when. I say because the reason they even said that. There's you posted on instagram recently. Said your brothers and their sons others friends. Yeah Yeah but there but they are like I've known these guys since I was ten years old guy and we have literally been best friends and brother level family for since then I mean because I my family is is a nightmare as you might assume considering. I have to do this for a living. Consider I have I have unconditional love at home in a brand new son yet. I yearn for the affection of strangers. So my family life was Kind of turbulent and all over the place and on established at times so my friends were huge. Doesn't mean because I know that you your Sister Jessica Sang Duets. At home we show. Did you know that story? So so clearly Jessica okay so that stood out to me but and we did not sing together but that would have been hilarious. Oh yeah had. But it wasn't hilarious. Your parents I mean the way you described it in the thing I saw was they were pretty serious about it. I kind of I think I play that up for comedic effect and you know you have no idea what memories are factual and what our editorial and I think that. My parents definitely nudged US points to sing in front of company especially when we weren't necessarily into it but I also think that I was an attention seeking maniac. That tap dance any opportunity. I had so while I say my parents forced me to sing show tunes with my sister. I mean that I didn't know how to you know publicly. Talk about my paintings yet so I did other thing that brought attention. That wasn't seeing Phantom of the opera. Exactly do Kinda can nobody in my family gave a shit about sports and I was really good at sports growing up and everybody was kind of like all right. That's surprises me. 'cause I figured on your friends because that same post that I'm talking about. I think the cap so uncommon that a lot of cops and firefighters know somebody commented that because of their appearance. But I mean and a lot of Rockland county. Are you know? Union workers did join the iron fitter ironworker steam fitters like that kind of thing but no. I think out of my buddies I think two of them are a part of the union fell so one is a one is an ironworker one is in construction and then the rest have like one is an executive for Google Z. One is a shaman. Which is we're really. Yeah for real. I used to host a podcast with him and he He went from Alpha salesmen to completely open wound. Shaman turned him. The death of his brother though is one of my friends a pass. Yeah and I think I think just kind of coping with that or or trying to Y Yeah that's crazy. I mean like that's a shame I mean that must have changed your life completely. Losing a friend though young. Yeah I mean I I think that especially him because he was like my buddy. Tim Is my you know Ed. I always my brother my best friend all that stuff. We've been through everything together and so I was closer obviously with Tim but to see his brother who was very clearly as hero. The Dude looks exactly like he did everything to be him. You know. Even we all did steroids to be him. He was huge. You know everybody in my town juice at some point so that was just a thing in Rocklin in Rockland County. Yeah now West Point was Was Not that. How long were you in West Point so west? Point is its own separate thing. Highland falls is the town right before it and that at the time. Especially was you know the way? I kind of remember. It is almost like eight mile where it was like I. It was super urban black and then there were the word. The white trash in trailer parks. That was that was highland falls and then I lived in Fort Montgomery which is a part of highly. It's like this whole thing. It's grays of white trash white. Yeah and I am. This is speaking as white trash. So that's why I feel comfortable making this assessment. Yeah my dad's from Levittown Long Island. My Mother's from New Jersey. I am pure uncut Trillo Riley. Yeah always see from on. My Dad loves them close. We are not we. Don't talk is wise that we've been through. No it's it's a long history of conflict where you talk about in your special. I sure do yeah. No I have no no qualms a pretty much docks the poor fuck at this point on every radio show have been on but I we just have long. Long standing feuds both Verbal violent emotional everything. Yeah we've been in fistfights it's like it's it's run the gamut and most recently. It's unfortunate but he hasn't met my son like he's he. He set the boundary for himself with quite a few outbursts. Right before my son got here. So so was he not was not supportive. Or did you guys just not gonNa long or what? He's very publicly supportive. Because that generates Interest for himself goodwill yeah But no he's not. He's not supportive. The divorce between my parents really shed a light on who they each were individually and my mother has since made amends and and kind of like a apologized for a lot of stuff and we had open dialogue conversation about that and my father on the other hand has Really considered every move. He's made to be the correct one and the only one with revisionist history as me. So any DISEA- blame you or does he kind of like I can just picture this being like. Oh come on. You're blaming me for everything is digital faulk. You have course. I mean the first Ed. He showed up at my special and we hadn't spoken in at that point five or six months and he showed out even know that I don't know I I've been blocked on taxman phone. Facebook twitter every social media. He still has email. And you know at which I've openly left out there just to bill. Hey if you have something to say say it but otherwise the fuck in lines of communication are cut off because the toxicity that I know. This just isn't funny at all but the toxins that kind of came into my dad from his parents and all that stuff and then bled into me. I do not want that to bleed into my kid. Does that affect how you have Korea? I'm not I mean I'm six months deep so who knows? I could absolutely turned into a sociopath. It'd be the same piece of shit but I so far so far ahead of you so far. I'm throwing a hundred. That's time exactly. Yeah which is also what are you. What IS JESSICA DO? She's a voice over artist so she yes. She's an actress voice over artist. Same with my younger sister. Wow my younger. Sister Narrates audiobooks. Both of them do incredibly. Well they're both Musical prodigies from the time. They were like three years old fluently playing piano. And some Needle Dick. Doing pratfalls after watching family matters though because I was gonNA bring up later like family matters is great dude. I still remember one of the hardest times I've ever laughed at. I've tried to a Steve Urkel on the branch outside a lower winslow's a bedroom home. He's playing her accordions. Right and at one point he just goes and falls back and I still think that's the hardest. I've laughed at my entire life. I was like six. I Shit my pants. I couldn't handle it and now you see that show and it's like really goes on for many years but great show but It's crazy 'cause I was going to ask you about because I think one thing that I noticed about you whether it's on you know radio or your pockets and stuff is voices. Yeah I do that too like just kind of going to wonder how you ever done. Any voice over stuff like Or whatever as much as I pushed my agent to get me opportunities. I think I had one of those and they were like well. You're not a professional. Come back it's fun to do that. It's the best to be in that but actually I've only done a few and it is weird because as much fun as it is to see it and be a part of it when you record it alone in a booth. Yeah and there's just so and being like okay. Do it again do it again right? And it's like it's pretty tedious. But it is. That's why we're doing it like this when you're doing it just to do it and you don't have those rigid. The Haram of somebody like this is a job. Get it done. They're reminding you that it's not supposed to be that fun. That like that completely boxes men and I feel fucking weird but when it's on the podcast and I'm singing Aladdin right. We're doing a ridiculous with your sister. Yes saying a whole New World. I still will sing the harmony at the end. Yeah Oh hell. Yeah because most people take the melody. I'll take the harmony. Of course. Yes that's what you hear an impressive Michael Scott singing happy per exactly. Worst experience of my entire life was actually well okay. That's a little extreme..

"I have to say I'm here in the studio again because I'm still following protocol wherein wearing the gloves wiped everything down and what not and. That's part of what you have to do if you want to continue using the studio a lot of people a lot of hosts my fellow hosts at Radio Free Brooklyn have been broadcasting from home now. That's something that is intriguing. But I don't think a that wouldn't really work for me. I don't think the show would be as good and also I gotta get out of the God Damn House. That's the truth. This has been one of my saving graces these past few weeks. The truth is that this has not been the best experience really for any of us being locked down being stuck in our houses for the second hour and even longer than that. We're going to really kind of lighten things up. I'M GONNA replay my interview with comedian Mike Cannon who? I'm a big Fan of who? Hopefully you can become a big fan of. He was on the show last February. And it did air once but it kind of got glossed over kind of got lost in the crowd because it was at the very beginning of this pandemic and then all focus went to that so I thought this would be a good night to replay that for everybody. So we'll do that. But first rate every Brooklyn is a five zero Wednesday three nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a.

Why Front's Series C matters

"I'm Alex Wilhelm and once again I have have denny Crichton with me Danny how are you doing. I'm doing awesome. That is that's enthusiasm. You are back in New York. I'm in Providence and I have to say I've I've had enough of this shit. I want some summer but the good news is despite the terrible weather and the time of the year. There is a gazillion things to get to. So I'm going to skip the usual faffing about and jump bright in. I'm going to start the show with front which I need you to explain to me why this particular funding round was such a big deal. Right you'RE GONNA kick off the entire show that so start with why. Hi the Health Care Front. Raise fifty nine million dollars in series C and Here's here's the deal. They didn't have a lead. They had no investors. There no lead V. V. C. WE KNOW Vision Fund. No no sequoia. Although Sequeira did the series B. on they actually lead with a couple of really prominent be to be CEO and founder so lasting Cassia and founder Mike Cannon Brookes octa CEO and Co founder Frederick Harassed Multiplex Co founder and CEO. Ryan Smith Zoom CEO. Eric Yuen. What's interesting here here is is? We're getting to these late. Stage growth rounds at a time when there's more growth money than ever and basically said now we're good we're just gonNA take from really prominent angels. Who all of that exited you know? Kind of startups and. So what's interesting here is twofold one is one the dynamic. VC industry which we can talk about more but to actually kind of the strategy here of front is a B. Two B. Product Arctic. Selling to other kind of B2B startups and so by taking this money from other kind of B. Two B. Sales centered Start founders and see IOS. They're really kind of like buying. I'm from their own customers so to speak right synchronicity. That's connecting the two together. So the fifty nine million dollar round had no lead. VC there was no like Kleiner liner coming in here right in the big check. I'm curious do you think that the disease that previously invested got pro rata in this round or do think it was all just money from these I guess executives turned angels. I think they've got Harada me. I don't think it was in the press. Release that they did but I am sure they did. I'm also not entirely clear that these folks took the entire round. I mean there could have been nate. Twenty or twenty five million dollars slug from around that was announced yama funding from a farm that was announced But nonetheless like the fact that it was positioned this way If you imagine in ten years ago this sort of round first of all wouldn't exist but this ground where we would said Oh a bunch of angels came in late stage. It'd be like well. This company must be doing terribly wrong Novi. ABC was willing to lead the round. Things have changed so much. That founder can literally say God. We got a couple of individuals around at the party. At the craps table they put in fifty nine million bucks. We're going wow unbelievable. They said no to everyone. It's amazing change in time. It is but also I'm kind of embarrassed by the number of people I know on this list. Like I know Frederick a little bit I know Ryan a little but I know Eric a little bit. I think I've met J. I mean I think I need to change industry industries because the the same eight people keep coming up. That's embarrassing to me. I need any new friends. Let's talk about what the company does front is be messaging kind of calms thing. It looks like email works for teams. I'm assuming this is kind of product aimed at customer support customer success kind of groups. Yes affront fronts. Innovation was really for a lot of top companies they have an email like support at techcrunch dot com or press at at Google Dot Com. Which is actually how we reach out to right? And so when that goes into Press Google Dot com on that actually gets centered and moved around the the thousands of people who are in Google Google to figure out how to respond to it. So if he's coming from an ad tech crunch email address like from us he goes to our tech crunch contact if it goes to APEC Asia. Pacific it'll go to someone who's live overnight overnight overseas and so basically thousands of people are accessing the same email inbox and so. Have you ever tried to do your own inbox with g million. No it's basically impossible with one goddamn person on the box. Now you had an hundreds of people all of whom are interacting with the same emails etc and suddenly. It's just a complete mess front. Took that and said Hey. What have we built in box from? Scratch zooming that. There are thousands of people or hundreds of people reading the same tickets reading the same emails. And how can we respond to it. Really really effectively. Huge problem tons of companies have it. They've been super successful. It's only a couple years old and what's interesting is actually the the founders are French It actually has a large Parisian office one founder Laurent Had A decade and enterprise. And then WHO's also female be to be founder of rare breed unfortunately in the industry who CEO up and she. She kind of came out of her master's disagree in two thousand twelve and dived into this and front. So it's a five year. Old Company raised one hundred thirty eight almost one hundred forty million bucks. An insane amount of money ended the speed was raise capitals crazy because their series of ten million was back in May of two thousand sixteen. Then Bam sixty six million early eighteen and then two years later fifty nine million so really. It's pretty frontloaded or backloaded. I'm sorry to kind of where we are in time now. I'm curious to see how much more capital they'll need to scale this to IPO. It's already kind of there. But certainly a lot of star power a lot of customers on this new investment and. I'm kind of curious that this is a trend that will see a flex from companies. That were so hot. We don't even need venture capital all the real stars of our industry the money in It's certainly a new way to approach it absolutely. I think one of the key lessons here at least for me was a company that really figured out product market fit super early on You know if you look at it was founded Five years ago it took two years to build out so uncork. Capital is sort of a firm that argues it focuses on product market fit. They raised three point. One million seed in October two thousand fourteen and then once they sort of got this product market fit. And it's sort of obvious today but looking back in time the idea that there d the SASS product to fix this team oriented email. inbox was sort of not a concept of. Now it's just scaling right it's all sales scaling And so we're seeing the rounds. Get faster and faster. Because they're repeated you you know the sales are repeating assuming the growth is repeating internally. The numbers look great. It's sort of classic SAS business I expect us to see as one hundred millionaire our club as you call it hopefully in the next year or two that there hasn't been announcement around the revenues but I expect it to constitute here about their W. two and a half year over year now has a pretty quickly quickly there probably. I Dunno just guessing. You're twenty thirty million era or somewhere in there and they'll be largest soon enough. Let's talk about the couple world through a different Lens. Though you have been looking at Tau really large funds cutting smaller and smaller Jackson. We're talking about funds at have billions in assets under management writing five seven million dollar checks which seems to make no oh sense. According to the old model of larger funds larger textile works otherwise. They can't really disburse the capital. But that's changing and I want you to tell you why because to fascinating fascinating kind of like nuance about today's venture capital market. Absolutely free front is a great example of this right. So here's a fifty nine million dollar check that no growth stage investor mister. WHO has a billion dollars ready to deploy was able to invest it and so we're seeing once again The largest funds billions of dollars. We had we talked about last week. Show I think we had twenty-one fundraisers that were over five hundred million last year. It was ninety one somewhere in that category so a ton of money deployed and so the idea that you would do early. Stage investments is nuts. Because you can't deploy million dollars a thousand times a year and so the challenges is like. Why are people doing this when I started asking if he sees the answer was well once the the cap tables in the series B and D are out there? They're locked it in a sequeira already in the a benchmarks already in the a founders fund the and they have the capital to deploy in the B A C D E F g all the way through the Sesame Street Alphabet All the way through and so by the time you get to the D. you have no access or in the case of front. No one had access suicide. Basically you have to lock in earlier in earlier and so even if you're the Softbank Vision Fund you WanNa throw four hundred million dollars in series d you have to be in the seed or the series. He's A to start to lock in that Barada to start locking in those early ownership rights. It just gives you more ball control later on because other people are going to kind of knock you out of the way to get around in place and so there's sort of this paradox. Where we're seeing? You know the the largest latest stage funds doing the smallest early stage rows and so that that was a really interesting dynamic that we haven't seen before yeah and the one thing to keep in mind that when I was learning about the BBC World you know maybe a decade ago. Now I was always told that if you couldn't find a new lead investor for the proximate round the next one. It was a very bad signal because it would imply that no one else in the market one to lead your Siri seafood areas to be and having Europe preceding investors. That were leads lead. Your next around was a very bad thing. Now it's entirely flipped on its head because capital is sufficiently unscarred so ample so much flowing around the people want to stay in a company. Preempt preempt that next round they want to lead be and then the as much of the capital to work as they can on a winner to ensure that they can return enough capital to make their large fund contractive enough to raise a second one. So it's a facet of there. Being too much money in the market is certainly a change. Compared to how things used to work it's actually an inversion but it just goes to show how in twenty twenty the way the world works certainly is at least in my experience new. I'm maybe it was like this back in the late. Ninety something but certainly it feels like a new chapter and I presume zoom. Welcome back to what used to be normal when there's less capital around but I don't see that happening for the next eighteen twenty four thirty six months so this this is the way it's going to be Danny presented for the next while.

Obviously but if you're not doing oral could you just imagine just point down bloomers what that was just you know it's at that point. It was like real heavy duty cotton and so probably sealed in the stink so anytime you have pulled it down. It was just a month right crouch by a river all day doing laundry and next thing you know you wanNA have sex excellent all right just wilted the flowers exactly but there was a guy went down for the first time. He's a true here. Yeah he should have a fucking numb lip but you know our age difference you. You didn't come up when women were still growing like crazy down there right. I mean in high school girls definitely had a little bit of Pugh. Yeah you'd run into it but I mean now it's kind of on the way back I hear ear. It depended on the woman. I'd say ninety percent of the girls I've been with have been fully shaved. I'd say five percent to seven percent sent have had like a little landing strip and then the others are an unkept that generally came about at the end of my single years. Most of my years were like wow spent with a machete. No joke like you're just pushing stuff aside trying to create on crop circles. There you go. Oh God did you live on a busy street that had lots of accidents where was forty miles as per hour but but oh three zero three zero three three three three off of it but like I was in let enough to where it wasn't an issue. I was off of a couple other the streets but yeah three. Oh three was like it was forty miles per hour. From the time I was like a living. They're incapable drive because I think it was sixty before for that and there was just a death every day constantly people just can ripping around that thing. I heard it on your podcast Irish goodbye with Mike Feeny you you tell. Mike is in high by the way I will. It's another thing. We have in common because I grew up on a very busy street and I got excited when I heard that I want to talk about all the death in front of my house. It's is crazy including my dad. No kidding oh that was the big crescendo way. He died on your screen in front of our our house that we that we moved moved into when I was five years old and now the Dow is finally the end where we had to get rid of that housing your mom out of there but before that it was it was our pets. Were getting run over for. It was an accident. It's in the middle of the night with power lines on cars that were upside down with guys yelling. Help me help me in the middle of the night whole one car. Hit Our our house going. Like they estimate like seventy eighty miles an hour where we couldn't even open the front door anymore whole it hit the curb and hit the second level. There was a giant crack that we never fixed your house car accident then it roll the took out the whole side of our house and then we all woke up. Obviously yeah and there's this drunk just wandering around in our backyard yard where we played wiffle ball like what the fuck happened all morally fine because like they say you know you're relaxed when you're drunk that have both here. Did that happen to Your House Multiple Times. Yeah Somebody Ah. There's always a house in every suburban neighborhood that just gets hit by drunk. Oh yeah my friend Dave's House I had to put guardrails like net. Did everything they blew through. They're living room twice. I'm I'm glad you mentioned guardrails. Because that's what happened us because before they put the guardrail up. Nobody was hitting our house so they would come home. From Huntington Long Island drunk is fucking twenty five and they were flying into the woods. No harm no foul. There's no houses does know people but there's all sorts of trees so I'm sure some of those accents back in the day where ugly so the house like. I know what we should do. You need to put a guardrail up so bounce off a little bit and stay on the road. And they won't hit a tree and die while so then they were playing fucking pinball basically they hit the bump they hit the guardrail. Excuse me and then it would would knock on to laughed and guess whose house was to the left across the street this yeah. That's the only reason my mom would hold court so you know I. I should tell some of the nice stories about my mom which is kind of hard to be totally awesome Christmas story. I told really fond memory. Exactly the court in the middle of the night as the cops and the the firemen are there and the numbers are all out and she'd be in her bathrobe just socializing Holy Shit as some some horrific scene right in front of our house are that reminds me Edward Scissorhands when anything would happen. They'd all go out into their Front Yard Bravo at this point. I should mentioned you have great movie. References over my head. I'm not going to live a weird ass burgers cattle jerry. Only the specific movies. I've seen okay. Okay it's scary some of your references but that one I know and yeah no we had so much crazy ass shit happened right in front of the house. That's why when my dad dying because whatever I've told us I I'll tell it again even though the faithful listeners like I heard this story but basically our how's he never took laps because it was so scared because we lived around the bend with the guardrail over there so we never took left but that day like my parents friends were picking them up and the guys. I could take a fucking laughed. Oh this is somebody else was fucking driving. Yeah he goes. I could take a left left one arm by the way as well sadly these are you know. Yeah I mean. We grew up with their kids. So it's it really awkward trying to let the one guy off the hook at the funeral awake and he's like what did you mean. It was my dad's fault. All right right trying to be you know. Take the high road look just want. I pulled him aside. Yeah you know. It's his wake. I just want to let you know you know me being my brothers and sisters.

You see and let you off the hook you fucking exactly but he took the left man and my mom Tom. She was in the backseat. And she's like I said his name. I shouldn't don't take the left. You know we always take rights. And then we do a u-turn turn the road a little further update you can pull in and then take the u-turn and then take you know go left. Finally and he was like no man. I got this and boy he did not. I'm not GONNA have it. Yikes and my mom took the brunt of the accident. No Shit Oh she was so fucked up. My Dad was on blood thinners for bad heart and took took him out because he walked himself to the ambulance. I've told all this stuff. It should shut up. That's tough but even when I was a teenager in college kid I took clefts but barely every once in a while it was just like you ought to be razor-sharp you could be on everything you and right right. Yeah so your neighborhood I mean yeah. You couldn't be on anything in my neighborhood too because like the fucking town mascot is the Dui really every ever really do. I mean the amount of time me and my friends have just like irresponsibly. Dry It driven drunk even like I mean it's it's crazy like my buddy. He had this huge boxcar right like a big lincoln almost where it was like a junker. That he was just driving around for the time being and our school had this real slow moving moving kind of like it wasn't a left turn. It was just a just a turn right. The only the only way you could go and he's going to place three. Am Right near TC. Highschool stops right in in the middle of this turn parks car in the middle of the double yellow line gets out starts pissing in the middle of the street.

The Need to put the car to drive and drove directly into the garden was too drunk moron mistakes in a row. Yeah Yeah and like I have countless friends that have died from drunk accent like like a ton. I had one tough one. His little brother in my fraternity and genesee. Oh yeah tough. Oh head on collision with a truck. Jesus Christ yeah. Yeah I mean tha that was a tough tough one man to be honest with you but we all did it. Yeah I no not proud of it and it didn't even stop once. My friends died which is raised up. If anything that gave us a little more thirst to try to die also I mean you still had to get pussy. They do pump coke just to be safe. Wake up for the ride without said. I don't know if you're at that age yet I got a bunch of years on you and and now that your father do you wake up some mornings ago. Holy Fuck them alive. You start thinking about some of this shit from the past. Yeah and you cannot believe you're the same person you're just like. I sometimes wake up. Not People exaggerate with that cold sweat ship but that feeling of like our remember some dumb thing from Jesse. Oh and I'm just like Oh why did I take that fucking chance. I have you on your side so you think you will ever for happened to you. I put myself in so much. I mean in Ireland. I fell down in eleven foot.

"My God we can finally figure out our shit to share what you haven't I haven't seen in a while she goes. I got a kick out of the fact that day were a late. God that's fun then listed all the cards. I didn't give her in the past. Two years. Never sent me a mother's okay card a Valentine's Day card at Christmas card a Saint Patrick's day we're barely Irish groundhog's stay card listing all the cars and this is where you can relate. She's the grandma. Yeah she's never sent my kid's a fucking cord of course right. Yeah but in my in my upbringing cars were very important really. I wonder what that is I. It might be a long island thing or I don't I don't know very important for which parent my Dad's side especially his father would always say not even at tencent card. Okay when your dad would really really get your dad and my mom would really am man if they made it the portal to hell would open up underneath it. Here's a new story for the people so speaking speaking of cards so we would just kids and I don't remember which car I don't think it was a biggie. Like a birthday. Carbon me was a Valentine's Day card. Let's say that okay and we don't get my Momma Valentine's Day card all hell breaks loose in the House that we didn't get a fucking Valentine's Day carshield's throw shade at screaming and turning over our rooms room on the driveway over Ra. And then. Because you know there's a healthy upbringing. My Dad's guys better. Go the stationery store get a car. So then we're kids you know with all these emotions and year. We're now uptight and stuff and we walk to the stationary car. Cards store pretty much in tears because of what just happened in our house and now we're begrudgingly trying to pick out a nice Valentine's Day cards says oh you're the greatest mom ever all the Porsche. It just this one will work and then we would go home at present the Valentine's Day card and then it was like none of that other shifts And I'm like this is I was the kid and I'm like this is insane right saying that's why my dad I mean similar shit to where you know. Okay I mean I had a fistfight with my dad and then when I got back I it. We never spoke about ever. We realize we've still never spoken about it ever and I it was when I was twenty. Really feel it was great because I was on steroids and I remember fucking I mean. He threw the first punch. Yeah so which is crazy in and of itself but it was all over college the fact that like I went to junior college based on my parents like they. I know K.. Average I'd like eighty-five GPA. With an eleven fifty mediocre could have gone to whatever school you know that became the comedian. 'em Anyway right instead they were like. Can you go to junior junior college because we lost all this money in the stock market. That's around that time and you know whatever so I said yes and I did. It obviously got great grades and they were like if you do this you can go. We'll pay for any school any school that you get into. So I went and visited my girlfriend at the time at Syracuse which is weird. Because my wife now also went to Syracuse so they were both at Syracuse and I visited them each separately at the time but I went to visit this other one. Then I checked out Ithaca and I was GONNA go to Ethica it. It was like. Oh that's the place I want to be close to my girlfriend. I can play basketball there. They have my major blah blah blah. Came home excited very pumped to tell my family that I had some bit of direction fraction. I had like a three nine three in school so I was rushing it. They had like they were happy with my academic performance for the first time ever and I came back and I was like I know where I wanNA school go to school. Ithaca and my dad was like absolutely not suny like why can't go anywhere but suny and that's not the deal of the deal Jio was that you guys would pay for anything. He's like Thuc you sue. And he's immediately like frothing from the mouth in my face like doing a big confrontation about it which breath looking back now. It's clearly a money issue right. Yes so if he was just like. Hey man like we're still fucked up. I would have been like okay. Say No more more like say no more. We'll figure this out. I'll maybe I'll get money to go to Ethica or we'll go to Suny and I'll do. It weighed less grudgingly than you attacking me right for wanting running to fulfil an agreement that we had so he's like in my face and I'm a juice monkey at this point in my life so I'm of course nose to nose with this fucking animal and I'm like yeah. Let's fucking go do this. Let's fucking go and he thinking this would I guess intimidate me away through like a half ass uppercut towards my midsection section t one thousand locked in because I chopped down on his forearm. Time where I know I gave him a dead for like the dead forum would would actually hurt more than the punch. Yeah because I fucking slugged my fist hammer fisted right down on his forearm and then like an outfielder throwing third from right just crow hopped punched him right in the fucking face he stumbled backwards and then I ran out of the House didn't come back for three days ended up. Getting arrested did for drunk for underage drinking. Like at Villanova. Visiting my friends of which. WHO's now dead visiting my friends? And how is that connected. I guess you'RE GONNA explain. Yeah so I I literally I just left because I was scared. I punched my dad in the face. So I fucking left and I just drove to Villanova so I was like I. I don't know where to go. I'm just GONNA visit my friend in Philadelphia right so I just visited my friends had A. We had the Thursday night where I never drank at this point and I drank as if I had been training waiting for this moment so I had like unlimited amounts of drinks. I was smoking weed if I had been away at college as entire time. Had Crazy spins somebody put me to bed in and some girls like room bears. I woke up to four of them poking me like I was the audience. Stand by me. What are you doing there like? What are you you do like? I don't know man get out and I'm like okay so I walked downstairs and still the full party out and I'm like fucking hitting into everything I walk through the kitchen into into the back yard and I know I have to Puke N. P. so I pull my pants down like a four year old pissing like underwear pants down to my ankles and I start throwing up so I'm pissing throwing up at the same time hadn't seen my buddies who I was with this whole time. Some guy at the side of the House. It's dark out. He just goes. Hey Man and I look. And it's a big silhouette and I'm like Tim is at you and he's like yeah man. Come out front so I pulled up my underwear left my pants down and I like penguin England waddled over to this guy. By the time I was eighteen inches away I saw the badge and mother fucker. He yoked me up. Grabbed me out front STUCCO breathalyzer in my face and I get spots of the stuff. We're a member for the majority. This is all retold me from people in the House and then front. The COP said to everybody that I blew a point four. Wow and the only reason I know that which I don't believe because I think I'd be dead told people that I was legally blind. He killed the COP kept saying he's legally blind. He's legally blind outta whatever they put me in coughs because I didn't have anybody over twenty. All My buddies were also also underage. I didn't have anybody over twenty one that like could relieve them of May. So they're like we're gonNA take you to the drunk tank unless you can get somebody so I called my buddy. Tim and I was like hey man I gotta show you something. Didn't even tell them like what was happening. Just said I have to show you something in front of the House. Getting Pizza. He walked sees the cops and like like a full sociopath hands them his dead brother's ID and he's like twenty three and the cop goes yes. Sure gives him the gives him me Eh. As collateral says it's totally fine slaps me with a ticket that was six hundred seventy eight dollars and at the time in college. I didn't have a job playing basketball so I didn't even have time. I'm to work but so I'll get to that the next day Friday. I was having like the worst anxiety. Post drinking like wanting to kill myself level like I can't believe what happened last night so I'm struggling through the day I call the number on the back of the ticket because they said we're GonNa mail a second copy home and I just I was like. Hey you don't have to do that. Like I got copies totally filing domain at home and they're like okay and then Saturday double the things that I just felt even worse I that I drove home and as I was driving home or no when I got home.

She's the grandma. Yeah she's never sent my kid's a fucking cord of course right. Yeah but in my in my upbringing cars were very important really. I wonder what that is I. It might be a long island thing or I don't I don't know very important for which parent my Dad's side especially his father would always say not even at tencent card. Okay when your dad would really really get your dad and my mom would really am man if they made it the portal to hell would open up underneath it. Here's a new story for the people so speaking speaking of cards so we would just kids and I don't remember which car I don't think it was a biggie. Like a birthday. Carbon me was a Valentine's Day card. Let's say that okay and we don't get my Momma Valentine's Day card all hell breaks loose in the House that we didn't get a fucking Valentine's Day carshield's throw shade at screaming and turning over our rooms room on the driveway over Ra. And then. Because you know there's a healthy upbringing. My Dad's guys better. Go the stationery store get a car. So then we're kids you know with all these emotions and year. We're now uptight and stuff and we walk to the stationary car. Cards store pretty much in tears because of what just happened in our house and now we're begrudgingly trying to pick out a nice Valentine's Day cards says oh you're the greatest mom ever all the Porsche. It just this one will work and then we would go home at present the Valentine's Day card and then it was like none of that other shifts And I'm like this is I was the kid and I'm like this is insane right saying that's why my dad I mean similar shit to where you know. Okay I mean I had a fistfight with my dad and then when I got back I it. We never spoke about ever. We realize we've still never spoken about it ever and I it was when I was twenty. Really feel it was great because I was on steroids and I remember fucking I mean. He threw the first punch. Yeah so which is crazy in and of itself but it was all over college the fact that like I went to junior college based on my parents like they. I know K.. Average I'd like eighty-five GPA. With an eleven fifty mediocre could have gone to whatever school you know that became the comedian. 'em Anyway right instead they were like. Can you go to junior junior college because we lost all this money in the stock market. That's around that time and you know whatever so I said yes and I did. It obviously got great grades and they were like if you do this you can go. We'll pay for any school any school that you get into. So I went and visited my girlfriend at the time at Syracuse which is weird. Because my wife now also went to Syracuse so they were both at Syracuse and I visited them each separately at the time but I went to visit this other one. Then I checked out Ithaca and I was GONNA go to Ethica it. It was like. Oh that's the place I want to be close to my girlfriend. I can play basketball there. They have my major blah blah blah. Came home excited very pumped to tell my family that I had some bit of direction fraction. I had like a three nine three in school so I was rushing it. They had like they were happy with my academic performance for the first time ever and I came back and I was like I know where I wanNA school go to school. Ithaca and my dad was like absolutely not suny like why can't go anywhere but suny and that's not the deal of the deal Jio was that you guys would pay for anything. He's like Thuc you sue. And he's immediately like frothing from the mouth in my face like doing a big confrontation about it which breath looking back now. It's clearly a money issue right. Yes so if he was just like. Hey man like we're still fucked up. I would have been like okay. Say No more more like say no more. We'll figure this out. I'll maybe I'll get money to go to Ethica or we'll go to Suny and I'll do. It weighed less grudgingly than you attacking me right for wanting running to fulfil an agreement that we had so he's like in my face and I'm a juice monkey at this point in my life so I'm of course nose to nose with this fucking animal and I'm like yeah. Let's fucking go do this. Let's fucking go and he thinking this would I guess intimidate me away through like a half ass uppercut towards my midsection section t one thousand locked in because I chopped down on his forearm. Time where I know I gave him a dead for like the dead forum would would actually hurt more than the punch. Yeah because I fucking slugged my fist hammer fisted right down on his forearm and then like an outfielder throwing third from right just crow hopped punched him right in the fucking face he stumbled backwards and then I ran out of the House didn't come back for three days ended up. Getting arrested did for drunk for underage drinking. Like at Villanova. Visiting my friends of which. WHO's now dead visiting my friends? And how is that connected. I guess you'RE GONNA explain.

"I was like fourteen or fifteen. I had a job does bussing tables so it was always a few bucks to spend on my family as opposed to my mom. I'm buying things for my sisters my father from so I bought my dad All this golf stuff right. He was super into golf because any free time he had he wanted to be away from the family food. He was super into golf and I bought him like a scope to find out how far the fucking flag was away inside putter. Putting in whole and all this kind of like goofy almost tinker toy golf shit that is barely useful but fun gift for golf enthusiasts right so I they give it to him that morning. I'm all excited for him to open it. He immediately like can't use this like throw it over his shoulder can't use this throat over show. He's like yeah. Guess Look Luke puts it into the pocket throws four other than like whatever what's next. I'm like heartbroken. Of course my dad and classic fashion like knew what my mom wanted to put it out there for on a platter and he bought like the fucking b-minus version of that you know like classic Zack Morris Gold Jewellery that leaves a fucking fucking green ringer. Got That for her and of course she was like what the fuck. What's your problem? They got into a big fight which was completely par for over the course unintended family on holidays and I forget I think it was on the twenty six. It may have actually been Christmas Day but I'm pretty sure it was on the twenty six. They were having out out big fight in the middle of things and my dad in the most graceful move I've ever seen because he's big guy. Six to two eighty my entire life. Big Irish fucking me pause. You know all that stuff. He like almost ballet parried. Grab the tree from both the like three quarters up top and then right in the middle like he was tossing a man out of a bar and in one fell like literally like swept up grabbed. It twirled and like he had open. Open the screen door and fucking hurled it like Dj Jazzy. Jeff out of the fresh Prince House fully dress every single ornament on it. Every every fucking La La light everything still plugged in. I'm pretty sure so it probably like was hurled out and then yanked make sure everything's shattered just directly early on my driveway through the family. Christmas tree got so excited. Like my diet because I can relate to all this stuff because I I have a fucked up parent to talked about that over the years now who had like. who had an awkwardly go outside? It was me. This is the question that yeah now after that happens and he gets his big reaction then. It's awkward for him because he looks like an idiot no matter what he could almost like I aspire to have his level of. I don't give a fuck because I'm almost certain he's never felt moment of shame after something like that he just like went into the living room right and watch TV and put on a bing crosby record probably. It's just missed every lesson. It had to teach that bing crosby eh. Isn't he the greatest sound might and then it comes out. He beat the shit out of his kids. While you're recording all those lovely Christmas classic so who went outside and like how to How to get the tree back in and hope the neighbors didn't notice and then how many of the decorations were broke? It was it was for sure me because I don't know I had to Dustpan all of the broken ornaments we could save. I think the only ones saved. We're like the ones that I made as a kid looks like retarded kids play together macaroni Caroni ornaments. Yeah so I'm sure. My parents were thrilled. That those are the ones they made it but like every like first Christmas babies. I think a huge metaphor on your laptop your baby footprint broken broke in the shape of a heart. Couldn't be more perfect but I was out there with like a dust pan and we ended up. I'm almost we went that day. I remember with my mother and we went to the mall and bought Christmas ornaments as they were the most on sale they could possibly be all year the in like a kind of put our family back together moment my mom and my two sisters and me went with my dad somewhere and shopped for more ornaments. Oh my God that's such a great story. Why was he pissed again? I Dunno you had borderline personality disorder order completely because your gifts were very thoughtful. Yeah he just he was like and it's not about him. Oh it wasn't my gifts. He got into a fight with my mother about like the Gift Gift. He got her. Because this was like 'cause you appreciate it. An offer knows a long-standing tradition that like he would just get her the worst right like an every year she tried to make it a little bit easier for her by saying like. Just get me this. The item number. Like just get me this dude and you know he just wouldn't do it and instead think he was being creative and putting thought into what nationality he was like knocking into a jewelry. Stand tall doll no slot a lot. When do you get along with your dad? These days nive and talked to him. I haven't talked to him since my baby shower really. That was the last time we talked you on the podcast that was August. I think it was like right after my kid was born. Probably like two weeks. Maybe so we still hadn't still unspoken and he came into my special though. which is this is what extended the whole thing? Like I knew I knew I was getting into self sabotage mode. Yeah yeah because like right around when my special was coming up I mean to put together what not to do self sabotage to constantly on the way to get parts. I told my wife I go Mike Cannon. I've known you for years of only God the more I learn about my cannon. We have a lot in common college. Played basketball. That was a big sport that we were really into you. Even mentioned five Star basketball podcast. I'm like I went there and then we have a fucked up fucked up.

That's that's Terry's best friend our sister but I guess Karen's father was getting remarried and the new wife said it's either her or me and the father says it's you holy Shit tells Karen to beat at fifteen or sixteen so we ran and then my parents introduced us to her as our new sister sister but anyway We had amazing Christmases even though there's so much turmoil trauma and stress in our house growing up great Christmases but the one thing that suck doc was my mom would go off and just like going to corner and cry every Christmas Shitty Christmases as a kid. I'm like Yo your dad is giving you at this point. Probably ten twelve fifteen really good Christmas. Yeah why with this mental illness.
