"montero" Discussed on Pop Culture Happy Hour

"And to have that on the same album as an industry. Baby right as a scoop. I think that there is something larger at play. That low naza is trying to say about the type of artists. He wants to be and the ways in which he sees himself moving through this industry right. That would rather see us. You know put people in very specific boxes. I can see where the confusion started. Allies jerry because especially in the beginning part of the album like lomas x. more overtly refers to an atlanta hip hop history. That i don't think had always been sort of a parent. Like i'm even thinking about that moment and dead right now where he's interpreting. Cash out by cash out. Which like if you're in atlanta it's kind of a blip in atlanta hip hop history. But it's very important So anything that is an important factor but at the same time. I think this conversation is important. Win the artists aren't necessarily dictating how their music is being categorized. And i think in this moment. A little gnaws x. Is making an overt decision to say like i am going to be categorized as a pop artists and i think he made that particularly apparent when he performed at the bt awards because he could have presented itself in any other way but to basically recreate the stage for remember. The time by michael jackson i think was a very deliberate and calculated decision to say that i am going to transcend these genres and incorporate different elements from other genres as so many pop artists. Do these days. Do we have any final thoughts. On little nasdaq's i know travel. You said you might have some critiques. Or just some like open questions about where he goes next. I think it's interesting to evaluate lil gnaws at six as a black queer artist right now and how some of his displays don't always hit in the ways that i think other black queer people wanted tuned. Come all preach the word you know. I do think that again right because we have to pay attention to low. Nasdaq's is an low naza needs to get these streams up low now needs to chart his twenty two wanted to write until taking all of that into account. I've had conversations with other black queer people that are just like you know like we like to see him when we want we root for him and all of that but in terms of that personal work right that self love work that he you know drops into the music here and they are. I think many of us are concerned about kind of his emotional in spiritual wellbeing as all of this is unfolding. I'm interested to see what low nasdaq's hulu nods ex is in five years in ten years right once he's moved. Pass this introductory phase if you will of being an open queer identified person And what that will do to the music when it's not novel anymore. I'm really curious to see what travel is talking about. Where trajectory is going to go. Because i think there is a possibility of lomas ex going direction of toddrick hall or frank ocean or like carving his own path. And i kind of hope that i'm anxious but optimistic. Because i feel like we've been able to see that like lots strong command over his image and over the sound and even the writing is very specific and like sounds like again someone who wanted to say something. I'm a little bit nervous. But i'm also optimistic about what that direction will be a longer term. I i agree with both of you. I think montero. I mean it is a debut album and i think what debut albums were so used to or accustomed to artists coming as fully formed but in all honesty especially with low nasdaq's only being twenty two. This is a very very formative stage for him in all respects of the word in this album. Like i hear the potential. That i even see. Somebody like cardi b. sort of hardest thing with invasion of privacy where she had also like the really tough job of channeling. All the savvy and the smarts and the humor that she normally projected towards social media and then channeling that into music that really stand on its own and that could gain the respect of her industry peers. So i see a lot of progress on monteiro on that front. I i agree. I think this is only the beginning. Honestly my these favorite subject matter in montero is when he is defensive about this one hit wonder status that he wants to sort of shake off or when he is paying attention to the sort of criticism and being like. Oh i told you so. I told you so. I understand that. That's the place where he is right now. But i am curious to see what happens when he decides that that doesn't really matter anymore luna's xs also where product of like this time right like how many twenty one year old twenty two year old kids do we know talking about anxiety and depression nowadays whereas ten fifteen twenty years ago. We weren't hearing that right right until like luna's x. comes at a time where we're having conversations about mental health we're having public discourse about blackness and clearness and you know all of these lines in ways that like we have had before but there are a lot more explicit and front and center and. I'm really excited about that. Because i feel like. I remember listening to the song and saying the cancer right. The kids are. I feel that i well. We want to know what you think. About little montero you can find us at facebook dot com slash pch and on twitter at p. c. h. And that brings us to the end of our show.

"Feel like he keeps topping himself. You've got you know him taking these quote unquote masculine central environments the football field and then he's playing with brokeback mountain of all things like a movie that he would've only seen recently probably because he was a baby with him out right then on top of that. You have him promoting safe sex. And you've got billy porter showing up for a hot second. He just keeps sobbing himself. I'm curious what you how you feel about the imagery that he's using his his music. Because obviously you know. I think before old town run became a big hit. We only kind of knew that song and then the video comes out. And now he's kind of inseparable from his images like that is what is driving all of this in many ways. What do you think of how he's using all of these images i. I was thinking as. We're beginning this conversation back when i was in college. I'm a black gay man so we're always talking about the divas on the music right and so we would always put people into three categories in ranked order vocalist was as good as it got. Right singer was right beneath that and at the bottom was recording artists. I think that we need to add something into their. That is just about being an artist. Because i think that will not x has shown us that he is an artist right. He has something to say. He has a visual. he has a sound. he has an aesthetic. He has a perspective but listening to this album. I'm thinking to myself like oh little ex. Wanted to talk about things right. He wanted to talk about paying. He wanted to talk about trauma he wanted to talk about being queer. He wanted to talk about you know his life. Experiences traveled talked about in. Both of you talked about being kind of a diary And i felt like most of the songs it feels like. They were written to someone about the way that you hurt me or the way that you left me or the way that i want you or the way that you know what i mean like. It feels like he's talking about something. And i just really didn't expect him to have so much substance because i think that so often in the things that we see on. Social media is just like entertaining. I did not expect it to be so heavy right. Like he's got a song called dead right now where he's talking about wanting to die right and then making the choice to not tell me as she loved me wishy cianci mabvuta fever even shit. We saw song similar to that The suicide hotline number a couple of years ago like the way that those kinds of conversations have an impact on people is really really valuable as a gay man who remembers wanting to kill myself when i was nineteen that resonated and i was like. Oh wow i get what he's doing here and i appreciate it lou. Naza has been dealing with and talking about these themes in his music since to begin at. But it's the country trap discoursed that makes people not pay attention to the words that he's using an old town road right or it's the visuals that we're all paying attention to so you're not hearing him talk about you know a suicidal aviation in sun goes down right but all of these themes that we're talking about in bringing about. He's been talking about this the entire time in his career. Now we're able to seriously i think. Treat montero lamont hill right as an artist as a serious. You know text you know with this album. I'll just say quickly for those of you. That aren't familiar with prevail that was travails way of saying. I told you so. And i told you i think this conversation is a testament i think to The stronger songwriting. That we're hearing montero like travolta's right These themes have always been present in the music and even an old town road assam. That people have wanted to write off as a kid. I saw like there are some lyrics on there. That are not so. Pg okay so with monteiro. I think the biggest difference is that some of the details From his personal journey specifically about his family and about some coming to terms with his sexuality particularly while growing up in the bible belt. Yoke being raised in georgia in the atlanta area. They have made it into the songwriting. So that the songs feel more lived in. I was comparing monteiro to the seven ep which he released off the heels off old town road and the seven. Ep had a lot to live to because clearly he was trying to capitalize off at this big moment but the biggest takeaway for me was that there was some hesitation. He was referring to issues that he had with his family but the lyrics were so vague. That i was like is this about the parent. Trap is talking about lindsey low. Actually but i be curious to hear your thoughts on the song closure in particular august seven ep. And how that compares this particular moment because not too long after the seven ep out alone ause ex came forward and said like by the way. This was like my coming out. Moment closure was a song that made my sexuality clear and by the way on the cover of the seven. Ep i'm riding toward you know. A rainbow lit city tower. You know maybe it's just me but those themes or i guess. That sort of reckoning wasn't nearly as spelled out as they are on this album just back futures this is you know the ep is at the beginning stages of like do. I really wanted to these people that i'm gay. You know while i'm a rapper. And deal with all of that. And i think at this point. He's leaned all the way into it right. And you're right. I feel like with the lyrics in particular on a song like dead right now. For example right. He's talking about his issues with his father right when he came out with his his father. Those issues talking about devices that his mother is dealing with and how it's still an unfolding situation that he's having to grapple with. There's a lot of like real miss in this album. That i think you know folks just weren't expecting. Yeah what i find. So fascinating and heartening about his journey is the fact that when i think about the people who especially music who are able to sort of become the most famous or at least make the most money off of these things and be the ground breakers. They tend to be white people. When you think about someone like elton john or george michael. Obviously it took them longer to come out eventually. But we haven't really had a black pop star who has been able to be open and also be on the level of elton john or a. You know george michael Even if it was after the fact for them. Whitney was you know in the closet. Luther was in the closet. Little richard came out but then like went back in and there are so many things happening so to see someone like will not be able to do this as a black male pop star says to me that like. Maybe we've come a little bit of a way like we've come a little bit far in terms of being able to have the first gay popstar ever be a black person. In the fact that he seems to have control over what he's doing and doesn't feel like he's being controlled by these other forces i think is really really empowering. I wonder what you all think about that. Or if you have thoughts about that. I'm curious what you all think about the pop star versus rapper juxtaposition for low nasdaq's right. So like when. I look at this album on apple music. It's classified as a pop album and i feel like there are at least songs on here. That would could be submitted for awards that would be rap songs right and like i keep going back and forth on like..

"Fanti journalists travel anderson and journalist writer and producer jared hill. Welcome back to you both. It's great to have you thanks for having Thank you for having us and also with us is writer. Npr music contributor and co host of the bottom of the map podcast christina lee for the first time. Welcome to the show christina. Hello hello hello now if you told me back in two thousand nineteen we'd still be talking about low nasdaq's right now. I definitely would have bet against you. Old town road was on top of the billboard charts for a record breaking nineteen weeks. And now he's done the seemingly impossible. He's taken a successful novelty song and related into a budding influential music career. He's come out as gay and arguably become pop's biggest out star. He's had a second number one song montero. Call me by your name. Which was a love letter written to his younger self and his reformed other. Bma's snl and the b. e. t. awards. last week. He released his debut studio album. Monteiro following elaborate publicity rollout. That had him flaunting a fake pregnancy belly. Let's start off with our initial reactions travel. How do you feel about montero. i'm in love. I feel like the album has zero skips. And i'm i'm somebody who loves a skip. Okay i will let you know now. I even listen to the twenty four second into even listened to that every single time. I love the album. Y'all won't hear me say anything. Negative about well maybe something negative but it's okay you gotta have the complex and complicated of it all but yeah as far as the impressions. I love the album. It was not what i was expecting. as a fan of the music that he's put out thus far And so i think it it might be a challenge for some folks but you know we can deal with a challenge. Yeah i was kind of surprised myself at you know. It wasn't as rap. Heavy as i thought it would be. It felt very poppy. And i was getting a lot of like two thousand ten's vibes from it like a little katy perry a little bit of that going on. So i think it'd like you said i definitely think it's surprise some people in terms of the direction. Some of the takes. So jared what about you. How do you feel about this album. Heard wait seriously non fully. I'm i'm pleasantly surprised. I worked on the radio back when we had old town road and it was one of those things where i was like. Oh i'm really curious to see if we're going to hear from this person again and this album really surprised me with how much i felt like. He wanted to say but then also there are plenty of moments throughout this. I feel like a decidedly rap album and not a pop album for me so But we know that. I like black folks. Don't get some make a whole bunch of pop music right like. There's a whole thing about that. So i was very very happy with the album. Yeah yeah christina. How about you. So i think this album takes us under journey. That feels very well. Earned to be honest Jarrett you talked about like the some of the rat moments and also alluding to the fact that you know he sort of blossomed into this pop star. And i felt like we were being taken on that journey as we were listening to montero so i think in the beginning especially in the lead up to industry baby. It is very two thousand. Ten's rat with the shadow to elicit by walk up and so like you know by the end. It's a full circle moment in which he's collaborated with yet. Another member of the cyrus family. And i just felt i felt so happy for him. I'm so happy for him. Yeah i also really enjoyed this album and was really struck by how personal it gets if you've followed him at all even tangentially. I think that you'll hear all these stories that he's told in interviews and i know travel. You interviewed him for out magazine He was a cover star for that. And i know that in that interview and other interviews. He's given. He talked about his relationship with his parents and his coming out and what that has meant for him and i really think the way he incorporates that into his music if feels different from the way he approaches it in his social media life but also one in the same because it's on social media. He's doing a lot of clapping back For good reason but you can also sense the toll. It might be taking on him even as he's very quick with it and really sharp in the way he does those things and is obviously obliterating all this homophobic comments. That have come his way. It's really interesting to hear something like one of me where he's talking about how everyone doubted him and thought that he was going to be one. Hit wonder just like. I did just like i think a lot of people did the gulf audit things that you do. Just get your face the show. Oh you big big pimping lemme know eight. The next big thing yes. The performance is an art and yes a lot of it is very calculated but it's also very clear that he's sincere in many ways and and really feels all these things. It's not just about making money or becoming the biggest pop stars also about proving to himself who he can be in who he wants to be. travel you know. What was it like to interview him. In what sense did you get of where he's at in terms of figuring himself out because he is only twenty two and it must be so strange for someone like to try to come of age and hone his craft in front of the public. I like that. Yeah i mean. I think that's one of the things i try to encourage people to keep in mind about what we're witnessing. This is a baby gay. Who came out to his family. And to the entire world at the top of the charts. That comes with a lot of pressure right. We haven't had a black gay rapper at this level of mainstream attention ever and so he's dealing with kind of those every day kind of challenges that we as black queer people face when we're coming into ourselves learning to love ourself despite our family despite what the world tells us but then he's doing it on the national stage right and he's gotta worry about you know the republicans and the bible thumpers who feel away about the music and the visuals. He's gotta worry about all of the straight black men who feel as if he's you know perpetuating the emasculation of the black man but he's dealing with a lot at twenty two years old and then we have. This album which i feel is a triumph I'm an editor at extra magazine. Which is a toronto based. lgbtq outlet We had a writer. Derek cottingham write a review for us on the album and he talks about how he sees the album as like a diary right. A black clear man's diary in each song is the different entry that lets us into kind of the mindscape of what little nasdaq's is going through and from my interview with him. i think that shines. He's he's really just trying to have fun like his wildest dreams have come true in a matter of two three years. He used to be sleeping on his sisters. You know floor right a few years ago. There is a lot that this child is dealing with. And i think he's doing a fabulous job at it and you know he's got a bops on this album. Okay like to continue to deliver songs. That are catchy. That will stick with you. That get stuck in your head after the immense success that old town road had. I think that's a challenge in and of itself. And i think he succeeded so well i'm gonna ask you all about. That's what i want. Which is another single and video for that. Dropped at the same.

"Okay. Overtime elite has their roster now. And we just wanted to kind of close the loop on it. You and I have talked quite a bit about who were they going to play? I feel like we don't know that necessarily. There is not a schedule link on their schedule. We have roster academics leadership, no schedule, so hopefully that's updated soon because it is September 8th and the season starts Motorola. Yeah, we have some questions about how this whole thing is going to go. But they have 24 kids. And there was a point where I had some worries that they were not gonna get 24 kids. They've gotten some really good kids as well. Like the buly twins are really, really good. You mentioned before we were on that you really like jazzy and got to do it like them a lot. Another late blooming kid, but I like that one. I get it. Like, okay. This makes sense for that kid to get. They got the Thompson twins who I think are really good. They got Jean Montero who is going to help them particularly this year. Stay in the conversation because he's likely going to be a first round pick in the 2022 NBA draft. So overall I think that my expectations for this were maybe a little bit too low given the amount of money that they're throwing around in trying to force what do you mean by low expectations? You thought the roster would be better or worse? I thought it'd be worse. I'll be honest. Really? I did. Yeah, I thought that they would struggle to get kids. I thought they would really struggle to get kids. To end up with like the buoy twins or what? Like top 15 kids in their class. The Thompson twins are top 20 kids in their class. John Montero is going to be a first round pick. You really like the gourmand kid..

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

"What was it three months three months. Now five while we're in we're number five month but anyways But i was so used to performing the same set of songs. When i was getting bookings and now i rearranged my songs that had been working on more music as an individual artist. So i would say that. I'm more focused on me. Like as memo when i do start performing. We're gonna have a show on the nineteenth. Dnv and i'm going to be performing a completely different set than what i usually do. So the way that we have a website you know dot com where people because as a group and individually as artists. and since we're both already established as artists before anwar you know. Obviously if we were both coming out new as noir will get more bookings together and people you know it will be make more sense and be more demand that people would want nawar but since we are own artists have like you know years of music out already We still get our individual jobs. So i'm i'm working more on really myself in doing More live performances with myself out there so many songs that i put out during corn team that i wasn't even able to perform so like i'm gonna be playing catch up until you know newark gets a book gang together but the has yet to happen makes perfect sense. I hopefully will in the you know. Soon she will be coming back home soon. And i think also a lot of people know that she's louisiana so you know when she when she says and tells her support system in tells her instagram followers hand back in the you. The word will probably get around and people will start with the house together. So inspirational right. Thank you before we wrap up. Is there anything else. You wanna shout out my instagram. Little nemo l. l. m. as in mary elephant As mary o. As in octopus. It's the fish but within an that's what i literally introduction little memo like the fish but with an m On my instagram.

"It's more like the tar. I would say like. She does more like live music. She's kind of like in the same couch as lauren. Hill and eric do. And i'm like not in that category in allan stone. He's like address performer. And also do listen to a lot of andrade as well and she's more jazzy. As well and so then you know you have. These artists like jazz. Like alternative barnaby more jazz and you have me. That does i don't even know. And that's what i'm saying from the beginning like you said that i'm rb artisans like yeah i have making more arm be asked music but all in all i really don't know what category my music is is. Well it's it's like rb style vocals on top of kind of like hip hop beats trap. Beats yes something like that right if it different someone's cool somebody told me they're like you like you saying over trap beads like it's like when the beat comes in. You would think that. Somebody's about to start wrapping the here. You come singing. And i'm like yeah when i was listening. I was trying to think of a comparable artist. And i couldn't really think of any. That directly sounded the same. Probably the first thing came to mind with my limited. R&b knowledge is destiny's child which i know like obviously they have quite a different sound but i didn't know anybody at a draw closer parallels. Yeah for for sure. That's why it's so confusing now. Like when people or like meal neon soul meal soul meal soul. They also put the type of music. I make into that category so i guess there is a new category called mcneil soul but like i don't know if he was into the or Kalani there's also a georgia smith. We all also makes no summer walker. So let you know you said you let donna was your favorite song out of out of on war. Yes yeah la monta. Donna was last minute With a last minute addition. i.

"As far as like self marketing mike. Getting myself shows in bookings like i am my own. I'm working with my own management. As of right now. I had a manager for a little bit. But that's a story for a completely for another day but You know so. There are still some areas that i'm working with myself in And that's not always good to late like learning the business aspect of the music industry. But i think it was really important. It is important for me right now to get to know more myself because i don't want to be going into the music industry vulnerable because they you know they eat you up in like special out in a harbi in the music industry and i just don't want to be flipped over like that. So that's why with the whole like fame and fortune and being like headlights is something that i probably wanted at a point in time. Definitely kaz doesn't wanna be famous but there are some people who just do not want to be famous but That's what i thought. Success was and. I don't know if i thought success was fame and fortune because of my own beliefs. Or because that's just what comes with. I guess being good. But i'm learning that that's not true either even though we've only been doing this music for a few years you must have had previous musical training and interests and inspirations so what was that like before three years ago actually. My first performance ever was when i was seventeen in high schools. Two thousand sixteen like a bill. We had this thing on my high school called the bill billboard. It's kind of like a talent show. You don't really win anything and then that summer In two thousand. Sixteen of the year that i graduated so bad summer i had my friend. Simon who's a beast like the tar and he would come over and we would do covers of songs. By jason mraz allan stone ceelo.

"And i'm like dang like i don't wanna make that type of music i want somebody to ask like who's this plan and you know who wears artists from it. I want to add it to my play list. Like i wanna make music that people can actually joins see themselves going and trying to search it up and trying to figure out who i am and where they can find it. I completely understand that. Because i've made music and i know the music that i've made is definitely not in the category of people at it to their playlist. It's more in. The category of people are my friend. And they say oh. Yeah it's good right. What kind of music were you making. I've spades cheesy electronic music so really nothing to write home about. It wasn't like a serious thing. And i haven't made anything in a long time. It's a lot of work. It is a lot of work producing. I tried to get into producing as well just to get things done quicker but it's hard. It's really hard and producing music at. I tried to set up my own home studio. You know in. Light of colbert. So that i can start getting things done but i just realized that there's just because i love music doesn't mean you have to love every you know every step of process With it you got to focus on what you're good at absolutely leave producing as somebody else. Who's good of that. That's what all the best artists do. I mean you look at. Let's say justin bieber justin bieber on the vocals. He's got teams of songwriters and producers and mixing engineers and. mastering engineer. Is that right. That's that's the reason those tracks sound topnotch because you've got everyone who specializes in their thing doing their thing right at the bottom. It's like when you read the credits. It's not like produced by beaver. Written by justin bieber like arranged by justin bieber now i get it recorded mixed and mastered by justin bieber. Even michael jackson who is extremely talented.

"Some other people you know they just kind of post the going to sites a previous guest ian mcintosh the way you really get a following it seems to me. It's really the live shows that get you the following. Exactly you get you sell merchandise. You know it's it's hard to expect you just post something on spotify. Expect people to to follow you. Even it's it's the greatest song in the world absolutely not. I felt like there definitely some artists. That i have met in the in the dmv and in new york unsually. Who do it very much has like extra curricular lakers is a hobby. Like i said sometimes some people just like posting go in. They don't care to perform they. Just do it for fun but when you take it s seriously as me posting in just being like okay here you guys go isn't enough so i was really trying to do live shows on instagram. I was trying to zoom concerts and just all the electronics does not be the physical interaction that you had with people where they can see you perform in really Engage with your content while you're performing so you're absolutely right. Performing live is where people get most of their following. Because it's more of a personal experience. People can take away and enjoy record share with their friends and i feel like during the pandemic so much we were on our phones all the time so we're constantly like consuming so much from the internet so it was much harder to put on music at that time because so many people were were over the internet and like over being on instagram. All the time and over being on twitter all the time in like having to be abused by all this content that people are just like forcing pushing out because nobody has anything else better to do or nobody has anywhere to go so it was very hard at first so i did wait until you know the ending of the year. January is when my business partner soleil. Who's part of new orleans. May we waited to post. You know the music video and then the the project itself so that we knew people were starting to engage more yet. A lot of. It's about the timing. That's true looking back three years ago when you started. I did mention that. Noir is the top in terms of production quality. Which i would expect as. It's the the newest what has changed in that three years. What makes new are better in terms of notches production quality but also your vision as an artist.

"They start to complain about people being abused or you know things happening like that. The catholic church had the big scandals in regards to child molestation. Pedophilia and not anybody get upset about it. They just fucking had lawsuits. These people money's impressions like it was nothing so now this is your moral high ground where you're gonna stand here and complain because an artist who has the right to do so release is a song about the you know whatever. He dances with the devil. Issue about it come. It's kind of a little fucking. It's easy second. Who gives a fuck. What is it. Why is that such a thing that it bothers you so much. What causing an uproar. I just don't get it like i get it. You are offended because something you don't believe in okay but people don't believe in things all the time. I don't believe in certain things that for instance that muslim people believe in our or mormons or this and that. But i'll get over it comes. The poor people are just getting too caught up in while other people are doing mike. Let them let them live like what does that. How does that affect you in any way. Okay you don't like the watch it you don't like to shoes. Don't buy it and then the other thing that's fucking stupid and annoying. It's the fact that people saying. Oh well he's a he's all he's a makes music for children. They're going to be watching this. This isn't that first of all. Let me stop you right there. Yes old town road came out and it was. The bigger audience was children because they became viral on tiktok and youtube. All these things but little even said that that song was not made for children. He's gone out and said 'cause genera look after him saying that you know saying the same thing that this song your trill child artist you should be kept away releasing little exit. I didn't make for children. Of course he was in old town road. I'd literally talk about drinking lean and adultery. People decided to let their children listen to it. That's their problem. it's not his. And he's one hundred percent rain children the artist's responsibility of who listens to their music or watches their content. You can sing thing for me. For example i see what i want. Do what i want. And really what i want. I have no obligation to listen to it or if somebody gets offended over it the same thing for that he has. He doesn't care who if somebody watches that. Nick do something stupid. That's his problem. You know a perfect example of this is when people in the far right people. These same people were this and that saying oh we'll trump the business and nist and they never they said well people don't have to listen to them it's their right to if they want to listen to it or not this and that.

"So Luna's X had an eventful week and he dropped this song called Montero Comey by your name along with this Really crazy video. He's like seducing Satan with a lap dance, and then he snapped his neck and takes his horns. Well, he's teaming up to create a line of Nike Air Max 90 seven's and they've been called Satan's shoes because they have satanic imagery and Okay, it says they supposedly contain a drop of human blood like it's just a drop this mixed with the ink to color them so like they're the color of blood, but it just start up a lot of controversy. It's so Nike came out to say that they have no idea what this is even all about. They said. They said we don't have. We don't have a relationship with Lana. Zac's They We did not design or we're not releasing them. We do not endorse these. So I don't know what what? Yeah.

"montero" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"Got a text from Jesse Rogers. I forget if it was this morning or last night There was this morning We both got it where he's like. Hey, forget about November 2nd 2016 the rial anniversary. Is November. 4th, right, 2016 things got a little crazy. This was parade day. And it was It was a weird day And it was a very It was a day like today Where was very warm, Very sunny. Do you remember? The parade started off with David Ross got, like nearly his head cut off by the wire. And and he had a bruise on his nose. Because he did not Doc. He was on one of the buses. And and he got clipped by the wire, and he wasn't paying attention. And then Joe Madden got clipped on our show got clipped by Cubs management. What? Yes, eventually, that's true. They didn't renew his contract. This is the most unpredictable interview that we have ever done. We talked about this quite a bit. Miggy Montero, remember they got him from Arizona. And when the Cubs were surprisingly good in 2015 He would often tweet after winds. We are hashtag. We are good, and it was just such a good vibe, and Mickey was providing fun leadership and it was before, like Grandpa Rossi was even famous in this town like David Ross was hitting a buck 80. But Miguel Montero was the guy in 2015. It was like their starting catcher before Willie was up here, and he was the We are good guy. And then if you remember in the run, Biggie Montero hit the Grand Slam in Game one of the NLCS to beat the Dodgers. Then he had the big hit in Game seven of the world. Siri's Ben Zobrist. Technically, the way stats are capped, has the game winning hit in Game seven, even though they won by one run, and even though they wouldn't have won without the Miguel Montero R B I single the game winning. It still goes down technically as Ben Zobrist because it gave them the lead for good and that's how that works. But without we all know without Magee Montero, the Cubs don't win Game seven and we wanted to highlight him on Parade day and show this off that Miggy you are not for gotten About us. So we have this long introduction just exactly like I did right there and hey, Miggy. How does this feel The parade. You are a world Siri's champion. It just it was different for me. It was a different emotions because Not a God. And I don't get any chance to Blake. You know, enough finally to the employment. To be honest, it goes. I don't know. I feel like identical job regular season and a gun. Kind of left out a little bit, You know, make you feel like it make me feel it'll be not not important, Or maybe, like, maybe I'm not good to be in To be in the lineup. I don't know. You know, make you feel that way, and I was a disappointment. I'm not gonna lie. But you know I can't. I always said you and saying I want I want to help team somewhere or the other one. Anything. I'm not playing. I'm going to get help, just staring off cheering for them. We thought it was we wouldn't use. We were looking at each other. Like, what Have you ever seen me? So surprised in an interview? Probably not. Probably not. This's parade day. He had the big hit seven and we were trying to help him kind of help. Healthy now. Yeah, and I'm like, okay, I understand that Maybe you didn't play as much as you want, But let's not forget you at the Grand Slam. Let's not forget that big hit in Game seven. And this is how he responded. I think ofthis part for me was never they never communicated. And then you can. You can I mean, I'm a better guy, man. I mean, they talked about the veterans eyes of leadership veterans. Oh, yeah, Well, you know what? That 11 years in the game as a tool, start expecting to be treated like a little a little better. Expected to Alise care like, you know, communication. Just let me up. Put me in the mood What I'm going to be even And I think that was part part for me because I never On this to one. My role was going to be You figured out? Why am I going to do with you know and And then obviously last. What a noisy was going to be part of the plate. You know is all done had Ah, Mei Mei just mentally drained because physically still feel pretty good because I don't play much. Just mentally draining. I can't I can't wait. Just go home and heal and go golf. And golf every single day now. I've never been thrown such a curveball during an interview. Never in my life did since we've been doing what we've I think the people that were listening. Like like Jesse was shocked, too, wasn't he? Just? He said he may have had, like a couple of cocktail induced. Yes. So he was at lunch, and I called him. That's right. I was like, Hey, I'm like, Hey, you want to do is like, Yeah, man. I'm just having lunch like OK. Do you want You sure he's like, Yeah, Let's do it now. Okay, like, okay, but he didn't sound like it didn't sound like, you know, Okay. No, no, no, no, Actually, China's saving from himself, didn't you? I love a good story. But I could not believe that is a lifelong Cubs fan. Here's a guy that I looked up to that it was 108 years. It was one of the most joyous days. For any for a Cubs fan in the team's history, and he was talking about no communication, not making the playoff roster and and how he's just glad that it's over. They just want the most. Interesting baseball game maybe ever played two days before that, And he was a big part of the rally after the rain delay and he was just half it was over. I just want to go play golf. They gave you an opportunity to play golf because they waved good bye to him soon. But do you remember what happened? The following year was similar. It was a member Willie wasn't there a bunch of Jake he was blaming Jake area for a bunch of Stolen bases on his game. There was a game I think was in Washington where they like stole four or five games, and he didn t plane, Jake. You remember that? I think so. Yeah, and then and he threw Jake on and Jake didn't have a problem with it. Put the Cubs than just caught him. That's enough there like it's enough. So on this day four years ago today The most unlikely unthinkable interview coming up next. We have my wife, a radio partner, 3123323776. Let's go. Caller number 30, you get to play my wife or radio partner. I'll give the clues who made the statement. Waddle or my wife. It's next. Listeningto Waterland Sylvie on ESPN 1000 Chicago's home for Sports. Carmen and your co workers got this new thing every Tuesday night. Barnes for the boy, and we told you last week. I mean, some of the questions mod on. I mean impossible stuff, but you're going. His team did very well last night. Nobody's you're not nearly as impossible Last.

Clyburn: I 'cringed' at Biden 'you ain't black' comment but compare him 'to the alternative, not the Almighty'

"One of Joe Biden's key congressional endorser saying that he cringed at the former vice president's comments last Friday on the African American vote congressman Jim Clyburn of South Carolina giving the Biden campaign a pivotal endorsement before that state's primary today he reacted to by this comments on ABC but first here's part of that breakfast club programme in the comments made last Friday by the likely democratic nominee Joe Biden listen you got to come see it when you come to New York VP Biden well it's a long way into November we got more questions you got more questions I tell me if you have a problem figuring out where you're for mayor trump and you ain't black they don't have to do is drop it has to do with the fact I want something for my community I would love to see a record extending the voting rights twenty five years I have a record that is second to none the N. double ACP is endorsed me every time I run the war I mean come on take a look at the record yeah I've been critical you I have a few things I want to talk to you about I know yeah you don't know me no I don't that's going to get to know you today when you get to know you today only talking about mostly black stuff I get overwhelming support from the black leadership young and old every poll shows me way ahead and black people save your political life in the primaries this year they have things they want from you and one of them is a black woman running mate what what do you say that what I said is that man's that I'm not a knowledge and anybody who's being considered but I guarantee you there are multiple black women being considered we see more clearly now in a in a black majority county are six times more likely to die in the pandemic from the White County are disproportionately uninsured African disproportionate make up their central jobs in that that they can't do at home the rest of our lives every day I'm not enough that from a radio talk show program last Friday with Joe Biden and today the house democratic whip Jim Clyburn within this reaction on ABC's the view I always think it's a mistake why folks want to sellers and think their home they did talking to friends and stuff because they just go out on a little on edge so when you heard this what what was your response to the comments thank you very much for having me on no question about that isn't there are you know it's all men Nardin is from South Carolina as well in fact here my why is my late wife share the same home town of Moncks corner we hung out together last homecoming at South Carolina state so I'm doing very well and know his job is your job isn't Mister buttons and he does that very well in this instance where your did not and do as well as I'd hoped respondent but I will say this I go about my business every day Aaron Joe Biden to the alternative not the oil market is not a perfect person you know there was talk soon now this is in doubt is determined I feel but it should be the next president of the United States and I do that by comparing the candidates to each other not to the almighty this is these are his words and his apology but basically shouldn't have been so cab cavalier he said during the interview like what he says he probably you know I was on hold on the stock in he does not take the black vote for granted he said also what do you say to African American voters who feel that they have been offended by this remarkable how do you what do you say to them look it's not a perfect person all of us in this program I'm a great admirer will be Goldberg Montero long long time I remember a few times yeah I was a little bit scared isn't our house in our own way of saying thanks I'm doing all and so we sometimes say things we do not agree with me and they come out a little bit wrong and that's what happened here I think all of us no joke but I'm not sure that I'm doing he knows me he knows there are very few minutes well I've done a lot of stuff written about and over the years and I would not have supported him if I do not think he was best suited to be the next president Yasser is just that

Senior House Democrat Clyburn endorses Biden for president

"And as expected former vice president Joe Biden landed a key endorsement today from the most influential black democratic leader in South Carolina congressman Jim Clyburn the house majority whip he told here and now's Tanya mostly why he's supporting the former vice president in south Carolina's democratic primary on Saturday Joe to me has the background and experiences affect or need it at this particular time in our history can you tell me more on that and you referred to him as Joe because you all have known each other for quite a long time yes yes but frankly I'm mostly cold and vice president of this week started going in jail for some strange reason but temperamentally I think he's with the country needs today is one the one thing they have preparation there's something else to help determine I think they're a lot good smart people who are good politicians but can't remember they ought not be president and fix when it comes to temperament I thank Biden has with the text button will need the support of black voters in South Carolina if he's going to win that state and keep his campaign life which he says he will do Biden told CBS after the debate that it's enough if he wins by just one point the medical Montero NPR senior political editor and correspondent is here to Monica how do you thing by then looked after last night's debate and some of your overall thoughts well first of all listening to that interview I'm really struck by Jim Clyburn saying that temperamentally Joe Biden is best to be president while some others are not and I don't think he's just referring to president trump you know I know a lot of Democrats think president trump obviously is not temperamentally fit but you know there's a lot that goes into I had a I had somebody who's close to Clyburn tell me a couple days ago before we knew who he was gonna endorse that he just doesn't think Bernie Sanders is the right person to run he doesn't think that he would help in the house he's very cautious about what he would mean up and down the ballot so that's a pretty important sort of five Z. Li thing to read about what he thinks about Bernie Sanders in my opinion that's one to as far as the debate goes on this is probably the best twenty four hours Joe Biden's hadn't quite some time in this campaign he has you know gotten beaten up over the last several weeks by his own doing because of finishing so poorly in Iowa and New Hampshire he had promised that he could do well with white working class voters that didn't turn out to be the case he said he could do well with voters of color well he didn't do well with Latino voters in Nevada he got walloped with Latinos by Bernie Sanders and he promised he could do well with black voters what he won black voters in Nevada narrowly he had a pretty good debate last night and he is staking it all on South Carolina needs to win here right to propel him into super Tuesday where half the states have significant learning

Thomas Cook Collapses, Leaving Thousands of Travelers Stranded

"Thomas cook boy gone ways zombie also yeah not quite gone but not not really flying selling tickets no one really knows why it's yeah pardon my french a leseur is gone and adria airways is going going man it it has been a week you know that typical gift from the movie airplane the guy sniffing glue yup it it's it's been that kind of week it's been a very very long week for european airline and everything so from the top thomas cook over the weekend this past weekend the warning bells were starting to the warning bells of bengal offer for quite some time yeah the writing has been on the wall for thomas cook for quite some time and they were hoping to get a last minute deal to the salvage everything i think two hundred million in pounds or euros a much which but unfortunately that did not happen yeah so so the there was a refinancing agreement recapitalization agreement the they had agreed to for nine hundred million pounds and then almost the last minute the banking partners partners that they were working with asked for an additional two hundred million pounds and dow is just too much so come monday at two AM local time thomas cook look UK stopped stopped trading effectively stopped everything stopped everything was was dissolved the airline flights that were in the air continued and the u- united kingdom's civil aviation authority began what they're terming the world's largest peacetime repatriation effort yes so the UK has has a particularly on bankruptcy procedure would basically win a company declares bankruptcy that's all she wrote that's it all activity stops nothing goes on business business comes to a complete close as opposed to the elsewhere in the world like the US said every airline almost every airline has been through a reward our chapter eleven bankruptcy at some point to get their financials and debt in order and they keep operating on but in the UK you declare bankruptcy that's it you're done and it got to the point where it was literally there was a fight in the middle of were about to begin boarding at JFK this was the last flight out of north america for thomas cook for today the bags have been loaded on the plane there was a gate agent they were just about to begin boarding and that's it went out of business no no fight for you yeah i mean in even if it's to the credit of the UK CA they got those folks on a plane with i think what was it a six hour delay the flight was supposed to take off at ten pm for thomas cook and they ended up taking off at four AM which is an annoying delay but no worse than your every now and again norwegian fight i guess so i mean all things considered your airline going out of business typically you don't get to fly home that day on a plane so that was really well done by them in this case they happen to position and atlas air seven four seven four hundred already at JFK i don't know why it took so long to get things going 'cause aircraft there for twelve hours ahead of time but the the mere fact that they got out the same day extremely impressive in the the repatriation efforts by the UK CAS been no less than in a vast array of airlines you may or may not have heard of before did there so there's the ones that are most notable probably league for the virgin atlantic british airways they are putting passengers on their existing flights out of the US putting people into what would have otherwise been empty seats in getting them home for folks in europe there are all sorts of random charter carriers euro-atlantic hi fly develop free bird privilege style danish air transport get jet atlas global olympics which is actually operating an ex monarch eighth hr twenty one as part of the repatriation efforts so there's kind of i don't know what that would unique irony aurigny maybe nouvelair and my personal favorite monolith ero nice i think some of these fights are actually also operated by thomas cook aircraft itself a lot at the peak summer season thomas cook uses are either wet or dry leases aircraft from other airlines paints in their own livery so you'd never know those aircraft flying right so there's two airlines that were that were operating for thomas cook was smart links out of i the leaves estonia and then the other one is avion express and they are both thomas cook liveried lead aircraft but they are operated by their respective airlines and so they've been continuing part of the repatriation efforts i missed in their high fly i think and i apologize for that but there's also the malaysia airlines eight hundred eighty eight three eighties and then the montero they're operating the three forty six hundred which is a former eddie had aircraft ad is a sweet ride for when your airline goes out of business so some folks getting not to put a a light touch on it but some folks are getting a an improved experience somewhat to get home but it's still a terrible situation in in that goes without saying anything about the fact that you know tens of thousands of people are of work but it's been really good to see other airlines and in the UK and train lines and all sorts of service service businesses say if you worked for thomas cook you know were hiring here's a special page tell us what you do what your qualifications are and we'll see if we can bring you over as quickly as possible so that says something we've seen in the past when when an airline goes bankrupt but it's good to see that hopefully a large number folks who who working for the airlines will will find a place somewhere else now really unfortunate or a lot of very very very passionate people working for thomas cook which is a very historic brand the airline wing of the brand may not be the oldest in the world but thomas cook travel is brand itself has a lot of history history and it's really disappointing to see it kind of all evaporate overnight

Lil Nas X's 'Old Town Road' Is on a Record-Breaking Run

"Just a few short months ago. Montero Lamar hill, also known as Lil NAS x put together a beat. He got from YouTube and some other samples and some funny lyrics he wrote to go with the banjo that was in the music. He was using and he recorded them in his closet in his house. He posted it on soundcloud. It was used by some folks in a tick tock video and old town road became one of the most popular songs in the world today. Eventually Billy Ray Cyrus got a hold of it. And he said, I wanna be a part of that song as well. And now all town road is on the top of the charts. If you ask, what the number one song in the world is old town road, if you want your video to go viral, you've include old town road in the video? No, no. That's, that's not what I'm doing right now. No, that's not the the. You can't go anywhere without hearing old town road being played. It's one of the most popular songs in recent history, and it all started as a viral Meam on tick tock, so little NAS, x put together the song and uploaded into soundcloud. It was noticed by some tick, tock influencers, who thought it would be interesting for a new video challenge, this old town road challenge got super popular, and people were doing it over and over again, on tick tock, until radio stations and people like that started noticing the song playing it on the radio and it began climbing the charts on Spotify and other places until now it's number one in the world. Billy Ray Cyrus got involved after the country, charts kick the song off because it doesn't sound country enough. And now, it'd be really hard to present any form of argument to say that it doesn't belong on some sort of chart based on popular alone. Here's why this is interesting for family tech blog dot com in for an internet safety. Expert and for you as a parent, we've transitioned to are now the means are influencing offline culture. A song got so popular because of memes on tick tock, the now it is the number one song in the world and artist who nobody knew three months ago is now one of the most popular rappers on the planet. His social media fame has skyrocketed and a country star, who to the most recent generations was only famous because of his daughter is now on the minds of millions and millions of young people all over the world. I'm not going to sing the song because of copyright, but also because it will get stuck in your in my head, and you will never forgive me. But if you want to hear old town road, go check it out on Spotify or on YouTube. It's not super interesting. But it super duper. Catchy.
