hour podcast some of us have to work tomorrow all right here we go let's jump right into 1967 musical events in 1967 and the year kicks off right away with a bomb a bomb on January 4th the doors release can arguably one of the greatest debut records ever arguably if you had a top 25 greatest debut that albums would have to be in the top 10 it would have to be yeah you know if you had a top 50 that would have to be in the top 10 right even if you don't like them you have to say that was so ahead of its time oh it's so different nothing out there was like the needle and all you hear it kicks I mean fucking what a way to start an album it's a heavy song it with a bossa nova beat yeah I mean that's pretty clever yeah 67 so you know bossa nova was pretty hip again John Densmore over underrated underrated underappreciated I think you are you are so correct you know never gets the the the consideration that I I don't know you can't put him in greatest of all time but could he be okay if there's a top there's a top 25 drummer top 25 drummers is he in it good question and in rock we'll just say in rock I think he could be I could see him making so I don't know if he's a universal pick but I could see him on some list I mean he's something you'd have to think about like you said like it doesn't get noticed so much you know yeah yeah or it I mean although his drumming wasn't shy I mean he's jazzy as hell I heard um writers on the storm yesterday and his adjustment playing is great in his adjustments during the shows just for that yeah yeah the unpredictability of you know how the how the song was gonna go right because they could rehearse it all they want once Morrison got into that zone well in the drama keeps the beat right yeah yeah the drummer has to stay up with that yeah and played to the clown so to speak right you know and my my problem is if some of the clowns don't have the beat you know at one point they've got to give in like I said Morrison or even Dylan they'll set the tone but they've got to be steady themselves you know it's yeah otherwise it's just erratic but you know yeah guy like Dan's more I mean I had skill I had a lot of a lot of technical ability right feel yes cool so obviously his drums always sounded good yeah on the earlier on the other records even you know three years worth of music whatever I guess I would be who produced some Jack Holtzman was the producer did a good job Jekyll or now wait so no what was it Paul Rothchild yes yes yes I'm sorry Holtzman was he on the record company yeah yeah was that it was that chrysalis or chrysalis I think or just like yes that's a lecture a lecture weren't they on chrysalis though also I thought they were yeah maybe maybe chrysalis was a subsidiary but uh yeah Jack Holtzman's son is Adam Holtzman he's a keyboardist right now he plays with here we go Stephen Wilson but he does a little blog on Facebook and he talks about growing up and he was like six years old and his father brought him to a club to see the tour Wow at six years old he just talks about like yeah it's a great little blog Wow all right and four days later on January 8th Elvis Presley turned 32 on January 14th the human be in right the human be e -i -n human being takes place in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park polo fields with spoken words from Timothy Leary Allen Ginsberg Gary Snyder in others live music was provided by Jefferson Airplane the Grateful Dead Big Brother in the holding company and Quicksilver Messenger Service speeches from Jerry Rubin and others were also given at the event although it's one band there I liked yeah Quicksilver Messenger Service who was it on January 15th 1967 who is your favorite poet of all them I know you're not asking me Arthur Rimbaud who influenced Jim Morrison good answer good answer way to bring that first opening segment rough full circle we're getting better Scott we're good now you guys get a lot of good trust me I'm getting a lot of good feedback so let's keep it at that I don't want you son ask for more money and on January 15th 1967 the Rolling Stones appear on the Ed Sullivan show at Ed Sullivan's request finish it he asked them to let's spend sing let's spend some time together is that the one there you go yeah and then he told him a really big shoe I hate to do this I mean I come back on penalty box I don't say

headphones on January 16th 1967 the monkeys begin work on headquarters the first album to give them complete artistic and technical control over their material and it was fucking horrible fucking horrible what were they thinking they know they were thinking the egos got too big they thought they were the music well the argument can be made that you know Mike Nesmith did write different drum yeah so he could write songs but I don't think he was a pop songwriter you know headquarters and they try to be all fucking like 60 ish and shit they weren't looking for pop were they they're trying to be like more psychedelic yeah I think so there were their channel on the Beatles with those quirky little yeah with anti -grizzelles on that I don't know some weird shit I'll tell you what though I

60s the monkeys got a they've had quite a few albums on there oh they do yeah they were they were but I mean I thought it was just a condensed period of the show which it probably was but it's still I

It is Wednesday, August 30th, 2023. My name is Julie Hartman. I am the host of the Dennis and Julie show, or I should say the co -host of Dennis and Julie, alongside Dennis Prager. That premieres every Monday on the Salem News Channel. I am also the host of my own three times weekly show, Timeless with Julie Hartman, which is on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays on the Salem News Channel. You can also catch those two shows, Dennis and Julie and Timeless, on the Julie Hartman YouTube page, and of course, you can download them on Apple and Spotify. It is great to be with you. To begin this morning, we're going to talk about a 12 -year -old Colorado student, who on Monday was kicked out of class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. For those who don't know what that is, the Gadsden flag patch, it is the don't tread on me flag that sometimes you see flying around the United States. According to the school district, which kicked this child out of class, that Gadsden flag is only flown in Trump 2020 flag flying white supremacist neighborhoods, which is obviously a lie, and not to mention insulting. This story, I think, provides a pretty apt synopsis of the state of American education for two reasons. First, the teacher who kicked this boy out of class falsely said that the Gadsden patch had, quote, origins with slavery. That is not true. This patch was actually made in the 1770s during the American Revolution, and the slogan don't tread on me was intended to be a message to the British that the American colonists who were rebelling against their rule were no longer going to put up with the British treading on them. That is the first thing that reveals the state of American education because it is very common nowadays for the content in schools to be taught incorrectly. Then the second reason why it says kind of everything you need to know about the state of our country's school system is that in addition to teaching the wrong content, students are being politically persecuted. There was another story in Massachusetts just about three or four months ago where a young 12 -year -old boy, Liam Morrison, was also sent home from school because he dared to wear a t -shirt that said there are only two genders. This is an ever -growing phenomenon in our country, but let's go here to this article I'm reading from American Greatness. On Monday, so two days ago, very recent, a Colorado Springs charter school removed a middle school student from class for having a Gadsden flag patch on his backpack, alleging falsely that the patch had origins with slavery. A video circulating on X features a Vanguard school administrator explaining to 12 -year -old Jaden and his mother why the boy was pulled from class. The confrontation has gone viral, and due to negative publicity, this is great news, the boy was allowed to have the patch in place when he returned to school on Tuesday. That is totally the right strategy. What happened is that Jaden and his mother were so outraged by Jaden being sent home from school that they went public with this clip. They were on Sean Hannity on Fox News. I believe that they also spoke with Tucker Carlson, or at the very least, Tucker Carlson covered this story. That is the right approach. When something insane happens, whether it's in your child's school or in your workplace, you have to go public with it. That is the only way that we are going to expose the rot of wokeism and try to get it unraveled. This past Monday, in addition to being the day that 12 -year -old Jaden was sent home from school, also marked the 60th anniversary of the March on Washington, where Martin Luther King Jr. delivered the famous I Have a Dream speech. In addition to Martin Luther King's great activism, nonviolent activism, the thing that ended the racist Jim Crow laws in the South was the fact that Americans were seeing the discrimination against black people on their televisions. The start of cable TV, or at least the popularity of cable TV in the 50s and 60s in contributing to the civil rights movement cannot be underestimated. It is because people started taking video of black people in the South being hosed down by police officers, having dogs unleashed on them. And in the court of public opinion, the Jim Crow laws and other racist measures that were present in the South no longer became acceptable because people were seeing with their own eyes how disgusting it was. That is what we need to do now in this arguably new civil rights era in our country. We need to go public, show video, send audio of a teacher berating a student. So I just thought that was interesting that on the same day that this child was sent home was the same day that Martin Luther King delivered that speech. Similar lessons can be gleaned from both of those experiences. Continuing from American greatness, this is a quote from the school administrator. The reason that we do not want the flag, the reason that we do not want the flag displayed is due to its origins with slavery and the slave trade. The Gadsden flag, the surprised mother responded to which the administrator replied the don't tread on me flag. The mother asked what would happen if Jayden removed the patch and the staffer answered flatly the bag can't go back if it's got the patch on it because we can't have that in and around other kids. They're talking about this patch like it has cooties, like if you get within five feet of it, you are going to get a highly contagious deadly flu. We can't have this around other children. Lest they get infected with the imaginary bigotry of the Gadsden flag patch, the mother shot back. Yeah, it has nothing to do with slavery, I love this. The mother is teaching the teacher. That's like the Revolutionary War patch that was displayed when we were fighting the British. Thank you Jayden's mother for teaching basic elementary history to an elementary school teacher. The administrator responded, I am here to enforce the policy that was provided by the district. This is such cowardice. It's not me who's doing this, even though I'm the one who sent the child home. It's a policy. I'm just hiding behind the policy. The mother and son pointed out that other Vanguard kids, Vanguard is the school in Colorado, are allowed to have other various patches on their backpacks. That's exactly right. I bet that there are students at that school who have come in with Black Lives Matter patches or pride patches or even t -shirts with those symbols. Why is that okay? Arguably Black Lives Matter, not just arguably, I mean it's pretty evident, Black Lives Matter is far more offensive of a flag than the Gadsden flag. Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization which advocated for uprooting the Western prescribed notions of the nuclear family. The Black Lives Matter organization has accumulated billions and billions and billions of dollars that has gone absolutely nowhere to places that would actually help black people. They purported to raise this money for bail funds and for scholarships and for public school funding. What we have found out is that it has actually gone into the pockets of the founders so that they could buy $6 million mansions here in Los Angeles. Those billions of dollars were also used to, actually they were used for bail funds, but they were used to bail out violent rioters who set buildings aflame. Those riots in 2020 killed 25 people, many of whom were black. But the Black Lives Matter flag is okay. I bet you there would be no issue, but the Gadsden flag, oh yes, that is bigotry. How about the pride flag? You know, pride no longer represents tolerance of those with different sexual identification. It a represents movement that seeks to condone the genital mutilation of young children in the name of so -called gender affirming care. Is that offensive? Would that flag be allowed in schools? I bet you it would. 1 -8 Prager, 776 -1877 -243 -777 -6. Back in a moment. Precious metals, it's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests.

Triple G has notified me that we actually have a clip of this recording of the administrator telling 12 -year -old Jaden, the Colorado student, that he could not wear the Gadsden flag patch on his backpack. I just want to play a minute of the video for you so that you can hear this. And for those of you who are watching the show on the Salem News Channel, you will see that this boy is so polite. He's clean cut. He has a nice shirt on and he's sitting there, you know, with his hands clasped together and he's just nodding and taking it in, incredibly dignified and polite. He didn't say anything like, come on, this is ridiculous. What the heck is going on here? He handled that with such class. His mother should be proud. Let's hear a minute of this clip. Thank you. Do they know what the Gadsden flag is? It's a historical flag. So there, the reason that they do not want the flag, the reason we do not want the flag is due to its origins with slavery and slave trade. That is what was, that's the reason behind the Gadsden flag. The don't tread on me, which is the Gadsden flag. Okay, so he, what's going to happen if he doesn't take it all? He, I mean, he is able to go, I was actually just telling him, like, I was upset that he was missing so much school. I'm like, ah! So I asked him, can he just take his stuff out of his bag and go back to class? Like, I just want him to go back to class. The bag can't go back. It's got a patch on it, because we can't have that in and around other kids. So that's what I was trying, and then he said you were close, so I was like, oh, okay. It's amazing that this administrator is saying, you know, I hate that he's missing school. He's missing school because of you, my friend, or not my friend, my enemy. All right, reading continuing from American Greatness, the head of the school told Jaden's mother that the patch was, quote, disruptive to the classroom environment, and that the boy was welcome to return to class on Tuesday, but only if he removed the patch, okay? Because of its creator's history and because it is commonly flown alongside Trump 2020 flags, the Confederate battle flag, and other white supremacist flags, some may now see the Don't Tread On Me flag as a symbol of intolerance and hate or even racism. Oh, gosh. We could spend the entire three hours on that quote. Okay, so many lies in that one sentence. But they're saying that Trump 2020 flags are white supremacist flags. How is that not political persecution? So half this country are white supremacists, really? And then I love this line here. Some may see it as a symbol of intolerance, hate, or even racism. Welcome to the tyranny of the minority. If one person is made to feel uncomfortable by that flag, the entire school has to go along with that person's preferences. This child has to be sent home. As the administrator said, he loses out on learning because this one person may, in a hypothetical world, be uncomfortable. So this is interesting because let's look at these four adjectives that were used to describe this patch, disruptive, intolerant, hateful, and racist. We live in a world where there is such a profound assault on truth. And what comes alongside that assault on truth is an assault on the objective meaning of words, because that's basically another way of saying the truth, that words hold a objective, truthful meaning. You know, when people say, well, what's the harm of calling a man a woman or a woman a man? What's the harm of saying words are violent? This is the harm, because when words lose their objective meaning, the rules and the standards that are associated with those words also lose their objective meaning, and then all havoc breaks loose. There is this standard in American public education. It was established in a Supreme Court case in 1969. The case is called Tinker versus Des Moines, Iowa School District. And it dealt with the fact that students came to class wearing Vietnam War or anti -Vietnam War wristbands, and they were asked to remove those wristbands. And this case went all the way up to the Supreme Court, and the court established what's called the Tinker standard of regulating speech in schools, because they had to balance the fact that sometimes it is necessary and even good to regulate speech in schools for disciplinary reasons, but also respecting the fact that students have First Amendment rights. So they established this standard, which essentially says that students have a right to express political speech, wear shirts, wear backpack stickers, wear wristbands. As long as that speech is not disruptive to the classroom and does not infringe on the rights of other students to learn. So here we see that this school district in Colorado is saying that Jaden's backpack patch is disruptive. And so if we are now calling a backpack patch disruptive, then it means that they can lawfully tell Jaden to go home and get rid of it, because the Tinker standard says that they have a right to censor speech that is disruptive. Once the objective meaning of words change, then that paves the way for the objective meaning of rules and standards associated with those rules to change. Another story that we will cover in this hour is this Spanish soccer league craziness where the head, I believe it was, of the Spanish soccer league went up and kissed one of the female players after the Spanish female soccer team won the World Cup. This kiss, which by the way I do not condone, you shouldn't kiss someone if it is unwanted or without their consent, but this kiss is now being called sexual assault. And this man who planted the unwanted kiss on the female soccer player is under criminal investigation for sexual assault, which in Spain, as in the United States, carries prison time as a potential punishment. Another perfect example of the way that if we change words, then we change the laws associated with those words. Because now if a kiss is called sexual assault, then you can be prosecuted or brought to trial for alleged sexual assault if you kiss someone. This is very scary. That is why conservatives make such a fuss when words are used improperly, because it leads to a slippery slope. And by the way, this is going to affect all of us. There are going to be many people, we're already seeing it happen, who are going to be fired from their jobs or sent home from school for supposedly being disruptive or racist when they're not. We have calls. We'll take them in the next segment. 1 -8 Prager 776 -1877 -243 -7776. I'm eager to hear your reactions. Back in a moment.

We are discussing the fact that this 12 -year -old boy in Colorado was sent home from school on Monday for wearing a Don't Tread On Me patch on his backpack. The school said that he had to remove it. In order to return to school, he and his mother went public with a recording of the administrator admonishing him. And the public outrage over this incident led to the school allowing Jaden to come back with the patch on his backpack. I should also note that the school announced that they would be canceling Parents Night due to quote, unforeseen circumstances. Clearly, they do not want to face some questions about this incident. Let's go to Steve in Chicago, Illinois. Hi, Steve. Thanks for calling in. Yeah, Julie, thanks a lot. So, here's where I'm going to part company with you, okay? Whatever happened at School of Colorado sounds ridiculous, okay? But you beat it like a dead horse a thousand times to make it sound as if this is commonplace. You talk about transgender issues, and Dennis Prager does it nonstop. And what you do, and the way to deceive people, okay, which is what I think you and Dennis do, is to omit from your discussions and your narrative other information that would make what you're saying completely false, okay? What is that information that we are omitting? Well, I'll tell you. I'll tell you. You guys beat this transgender drum like they are going to take over the world and destroy civilization. The fact is - When have we ever said those words? That they're going to take over the world and destroy civilization? I listen to Dennis all the time. It's incessant. And the fact is, is there are very few transgender people relative to the population, okay? That's true. Most of us will never meet a transgender person. The few people who are transgender are afflicted with a horrible psychiatric illness, okay? They deserve empathy. No one is forcing them to undergo any transgender hormonal treatment. I'm going to pause you there, Steve. I don't mean to cut you off, but just for the sake of time, I'm going to pause you and I'd like to continue a discussion, but I have to cut in. You are right, Steve, that there is a relatively low number of transgender individuals relative to the population, which is why I ask the question, why is teaching that gender is non -binary and fluid becoming so mainstream if this is so rare? And I encourage you, Steve, and anyone listening who may agree with his disagreement of Dennis' position and my position, I encourage you to read the California Department of Education codes, the Arizona Department of Education codes, New Jersey, Michigan. Many states, blue states around the country, in these codes have things that say that you should teach kids that gender is non -binary. In New Jersey, they say that you should not refer to children using gendered pronouns. Here in Los Angeles, the LAUSD, which has about 450 schools under its jurisdiction, has monthly Rainbow Club meetings where students as young as four years old are subjected to drag queen story hour. This is not a fringe thing. This is very mainstream, and they are also taught these radical gender codes. I agree that people who are experiencing gender dysphoria deserve empathy. That is why I, and I feel comfortable speaking for Dennis, that is why Dennis and I are so disgusted. And that is the word disgusted by this movement, which is saying, legitimizing the fact that it is normal to not feel your gender. These individuals deserve empathy, they deserve therapy, but what they do not deserve is being subjected to doctors and students who are saying, yeah, you're 13 years old or you're 15 years old and you don't feel like your gender, here are some puberty blockers, and by the way, you should have your breasts cut off. This is happening at the Duke University Medical School, Medical Hospital, excuse me, Boston Children's Hospital. This is happening all over the country. I'd like to give Steve an opportunity to respond. We may have to go into the next segment, Steve. We don't have much time. OK. Yeah. What you're saying about people having their breasts, women having their breasts cut off and hormonal blockers, again, it's a misleading narrative you're giving. OK. No, no, no female is going to breast cut off without her consent, without substantial psychiatric involvement. OK. It is not substantial psychiatric involvement. That is not true. You know what? You know what? I've studied this issue. It is true. As have I. As have I. It is very common for these kids. OK, I'm sorry. We're going to have to continue into the next segment. Steve, stay on. We'll pick it up. Back in a moment.
A highlight from Crypto and the Major Questions Doctrine
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, N .L .W. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Monday, August 7th. And today we are talking about the latest in Coinbase's fight against the SEC. A quick note before we dive in. Sponsorship is back open again on The Breakdown. You've heard over the last few weeks a number of sponsors of the show, and we are currently booking out for the fall and into the beginning of next year. If your company is looking to reach easily the smartest audience in the crypto space, shoot me a DM or send us a note at sponsors at breakdown network. And with that, let's get into this show. Now, this morning, a really significant thing happened. And that is, of course, PayPal's announcement of PiUSD, which is their new stablecoin offering built on Ethereum. Right now, the leading contender for the most important trend of this bear market is TradFi muscling in on the territory that was seeded by crypto native companies behaving badly. And this could obviously be another big example of that. Now, this news just happened after I had already prepared today's show, so we will get all into that tomorrow. But for now, we have some big things from the end of last week to catch up on. On Saturday, CoinFund CEO Jake Brookman tweeted, This might be one of the most important documents ever produced that explains why digital assets are, in general, not securities. The document he was talking about came from Coinbase, and it was a request from that company to dismiss the SEC's case against them. Coinbase chief legal officer Paul Grewal wrote, Today Coinbase filed our brief asking the court to dismiss the SEC's case against us. Our core argument is simple. We do not offer investment contracts as that term has been construed by decades of Supreme Court and other binding precedent. By ignoring that precedent, the SEC has violated due process, abused its discretion and abandoned its own earlier interpretation of the securities laws. By ignoring that precedent, the SEC has trampled the strict boundaries on its basic authority set by Congress. So there is a lot in here. And even in that short thread, you can see that there's really at least two big things going on. The first is an argument about what is or isn't a security, and the second is about where the SEC's authority really begins and ends. So let's take a step back and get into it. Coinbase has officially asked the court to dismiss the SEC's lawsuit against them. On Friday, they filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings, which raised questions about the validity of the lawsuit and indeed whether the SEC even has the jurisdiction to police the crypto space. The Coinbase motion argues along two dimensions. First, they argue that cryptos are not securities. Now, the argument for Coinbase rests on the familiar Howey test analysis, which we've seen across all token cases to date. Howey, you'll remember, identifies investment contracts as a class of security sales which are subject to SEC regulation. And for a sale to be considered an investment contract under Howey, it has to satisfy a number of different elements. It must be an investment of money. That investment of money must be in a common enterprise. There must be the expectation of profit, and specifically the expectation of profit must be derived from the efforts of others. In other words, this isn't something that you are putting work into yourself and expecting to benefit from thusly. In their motion, Coinbase argued that sales of tokens on their platform, quote, do not involve contractual undertakings to deliver future value, reflecting the income, profits or assets of a business. They are commodity sales with the obligations on both sides discharged entirely the moment the digital token is delivered in exchange for payment. Now, of course, they also discussed last month's decision in the Ripple lawsuit. In essence, the judge in that case decided the tokens in and of themselves are not securities, but they are sometimes sold alongside promises from an issuer, which would make those particular sales subject to SEC regulations. Coinbase argued that the facts in Ripple were, quote, substantially identical to those alleged here. Specifically, one of the key decisions in the Ripple case was that anonymous sales of the XRP token through an order book were not considered to be sales of investment contracts. For that reason, they were not found to be under the SEC's jurisdiction. Coinbase are arguing that the 13 tokens named by the SEC in their case are substantially similar to Ripple's XRP and should have the same results from Howie analysis. This would mean, of course, that sales conducted through Coinbase's exchange should not be considered the sale of securities. Coinbase relied on similar arguments to claim that their staking and wallet products were not subject to registration under securities law. They claim that customers are simply using their commodity tokens within software products offered by Coinbase. This would, of course, distinguish these Coinbase products from more traditional asset management services, where profit is derived from the skill of the asset manager. Now, within the whole security discussion, there is one particular analogy that's getting a lot of attention. Austin Campbell tweeted, one of the interesting parts of the SEC interpretation for me is that, if correct, I don't really see a dividing line between crypto and many other activities. Are limited edition Nikes now securities? I think Coinbase lays bare some of the issues well. Now, the specific analogy in the Coinbase argument is actually around baseball. They write, one can invest in a baseball or other trading card company through an instrument that imposes obligations on the company, and that will be a security. Or one can buy baseball cards on the open market, hoping they appreciate in value, and one will have bought a commodity. That remains true even if the company makes representations about plans to create a premier trading card platform to drive up the value of the cards it sells. Those representations can't turn baseball cards into securities. Baseball cards are not shares in the baseball card enterprise. This principle applies equally here. Coinbase goes on, the transactions over Coinbase is platform and prime are not and do not involve contractual undertaking to deliver future value reflecting the income profits or assets of a business. They are commodity sales with the obligations on both sides discharged entirely the moment the digital token is delivered in exchange for payment. The SEC's complaint does not allege otherwise because it does not and cannot plead the required elements of an investment contract. The SEC's Exchange Act claims should be dismissed. Now, still, even with colorful analogies like this, the in many ways more significant part of Coinbase's argument involves the major questions doctrine. And this is something you've heard me reference a number of different times on this show, but let's give a little bit of background. This is a legal doctrine that has been relatively recently developed by the Supreme Court. The major questions doctrine, or MQD, holds that administrative bodies, such as regulators like the SEC, require explicit guidance from Congress when tackling issues which have a major impact on the U .S. economy. It was recently used to strike down the Biden administration's student loan forgiveness program as it exceeded the authority of the White House. More classic cases include subjects like the tobacco industry and emissions reduction within the energy sector. Now, the point of MQD is not that regulators are never allowed to take on new areas of responsibility, but rather that Congress needs to be very specific when expanding a regulator scope. In a way, MQD is a statement about how regulatory legislation should be interpreted. In the original Supreme Court case, Whitman versus American Trucking Association from 2001, Justice Scalia said that Congress, quote, does not alter the fundamental details of a regulatory scheme in vague terms or ancillary provisions. It does not, one might say, hide elephants in mouse holes. For the Coinbase lawsuit, the argument is that Congress did not intend to hide widescale jurisdiction over the crypto industry for the SEC within the Securities Act of 1933. In their brief, Coinbase claimed that, quote, the major questions principle applies directly here. The wholesale regulation of secondary markets for trading digital assets qualifies as extraordinary, and the digital asset industry worth around one trillion dollars is a, quote, significant portion of the American economy. Now, digging a little bit deeper into this from, you know, an actual lawyer, Morrison Cohen's Jason Gottlieb wrote a really good thread about this exact MQD issue. He writes, Coinbase's brief is fantastic. No surprise, given the strong arguments in their favor and great lawyers in -house and outside working on it. One point, though, the major questions doctrine, I think Coinbase actually undersold just how major a question this is. As background, the major questions doctrine is basically that when an agency claims the, quote, power to regulate a significant portion of the American economy that has, quote, vast economic and political significance, it must point to clear congressional authorization for that power. A different district court judge in the same courthouse recently found that the crypto industry, though certainly important, falls far short of being a portion of the American economy bearing vast economic and political significance, unlike, say, energy or tobacco. I think that judge and other folks, even within crypto, vastly underestimate the majorness of this industry. I often see references to it being a, quote, trillion dollar industry, which is basically just the headline market cap of all crypto. Coinbase's brief skillfully lays out the base case. The industry is worth around one trillion, one in five adults in the U .S. is on crypto. Hundreds of millions of people globally use crypto currencies for myriad purposes. But this is an underestimate that one trillion dollars is just the market cap of all the tokens. The value of the industry isn't just the market cap of tokens any more than the value of the smartphone industry is the stock valuation of Apple and Samsung. What about all of the people, the productivity of all the engineers, programmers, designers, lawyers, accountants, auditors, all the IP, the network of companies that don't have tokens but support the ecosystems, the interconnections with companies outside the U .S.? And most of all, our lives are becoming more digital with no clear line between cryptocurrency and other digital assets. So when the SEC says, quote, all tokens are securities, it is aggregating authority not just over crypto, but the entire digital asset economy. The market cap of all crypto tokens may be one trillion dollars, but the value of the digital asset economy is certainly many multiples of that. It is literally the future of the entire economy minus a few necessarily analog portions of analog industries. Coinbase was right and smart not to go into this depth and a motion for judgment on the pleadings. It's not the right legal or procedural place for it. But in future arguments on the major questions doctrine in crypto, let's not understate or undersell the majorness of the questions. If everything is becoming digitized, this fight isn't just about cryptocurrency. It's a much larger battle for the right to your digital life and whether the Securities and Exchange Commission is the proper regulator for the entire digital economy. Spoiler alert, it is not. Now, one of the things that really stands out in this whole engagement is Coinbase not really being super solipsistic in their fight. This is not a document that reads like an exchange fighting for its survival or even just asserting that they are in the right in a particular case. Instead, it's about these much bigger questions about authority and how authority is determined. It's fundamentally about questions of administrative power in America and what the limits on that should be. In many ways, crypto is just serving as the next logical battleground for that legal point. Now, tactically, right from their initial defense filing, legal commentators have suggested that Coinbase may be rushing to get a major questions doctrine decision on the books in a lower court. This would allow Coinbase to take the issue before the Supreme Court ahead of other crypto cases that also might deal with the major questions doctrine, including the Binance and Terraform Labs lawsuits. Some have speculated that Coinbase is concerned that having an MQD fight with those much less favorable lawsuits will be an extreme negative to the industry. In any case, the SEC will have until October 3rd to file a response. And overall, I think that the tweet that best captures the vibe of this weekend was Zcash founder Zuko tweeting, I never knew it could be so fun to read legal filings. Anyways, that is the big one that we wanted to explore today. But real quickly, before we get out of here, just one more from the rumor mill, New York Attorney General Letitia James is reportedly locking horns with Barry Silbert as the digital currency group empire comes under additional scrutiny. According to an article from Bloomberg, the AG's office is conducting a probe into DCG. According to anonymous sources, investigators have requested information from former Genesis executives. Genesis is, of course, the crypto lending arm of DCG, which filed for bankruptcy in January. That bankruptcy stowed controversy when it was revealed that the largest creditor was a group of Gemini customers who had lent out their crypto. Early during bankruptcy proceedings, it was also discovered that DCG had taken out 1 .6 billion in intercompany loans from their subsidiary. At the time, DCG had given the public impression that Genesis losses from the bankruptcy has been extremely acrimonious. The Gemini co -founders, the Winklevoss twins, have publicly called out DCG numerous times for failing to do enough to refinance the loans, along with a whole other slew of accusations. Now, the SEC has already sued both Genesis and Gemini for offering unregistered securities for sale in relation to the lending arrangement, and there had been rumors of a Justice Department probe in January, but nothing appears to have come from that investigation. According to this new Bloomberg report, former Genesis chief risk officer Michael Patchen has already been questioned in the AG's investigation. That investigation is rumored to have taken place over recent months, and according to one anonymous source, the DCG loans are a critical part of the inquiry. Particularly, it seems like the AG is interested in how they were characterized to investors in the market. Of course, DCG CEO Barry Silbert has remained adamant that the loans were, quote, always structured on an arm's length basis and priced at prevailing market interest rates. Following the Bloomberg article, a spokesperson for DCG said the company is assisting regulators and investigators upon request and that, quote, DCG has always conducted its business lawfully and with the highest ethical standards. So, my friends, that is going to do it for today's episode. There is a lot coming up this week. I tease the PayPal stablecoin story, and then there is also a lot of smoke around Huobi, although it may take a few episodes to really understand exactly what's going on there. In any case, it appears that we are not in for that quiet August that so often happens in financial spaces. So, as always, until tomorrow, be safe and take care of each other. Peace.

"Fascinating that at that young age, you were presented as this image of a wholesomeness and already in the 50s. Look, this is just the way of the world. The dark side is always attractive. And people don't understand what they're getting into. You know, you kind of think like, wow, Elvis Presley, the idea that he died of a drug overdose bloated Iraq at age 42. It breaks your heart. How many of those people they trod that path? And they died so young whether they were talking to Jimi Hendrix or anybody, any name, you know, Jim Morrison. I mean, on and on and on and on and you represent it obviously something very, very different. And The Rolling Stones and even The Beatles, if they were experimenting with drugs, they were very wealthy, and they could go to Switzerland and then have their blood transfused. Yes, Keith Richards famously had to get a blood transfusion because he was so loaded up with drugs. He's like, not a problem. I'll just go to some clinic in Switzerland, and we'll take care of that. Yeah, but kids were dying by the thousands following examples with the drugs that they couldn't afford to have their blood transfused. And people weren't even making well, there was a connection, but I mean, you know, you couldn't blame them for just sinking in their songs and living their lives the way they wanted to. But the fallout from it was too bad. It was very unfortunate. And of course, here I was had four daughters living in Beverly Hills and going to church regularly and riding bestselling books of Christian principles. And yet having rock and roll records at the same time. And so I was okay.

"I'm with you. Anyway, it's a funny movement that you make with your tongue. But we have to go back to Germanic for this one. And it's actually kith is related to kuth. And kuth nowadays used to mean polite and courteous and if your uncles, you're the opposite. That actually meant also knowledge, really. And that was the original sense of kiss as well. It was knowledge. It was something innate, and so it also could apply to your native land, something that you were indigenous to. And of course, in your native land, you have your Friends and your neighbors. And the phrase kitten kin, where your country and your relatives. So the king were the relatives and the kiss was your native land, but then later the two merged, so your kip and kin are one in the same your Friends and your relatives, I suppose. But kin there is also behind king as well, weirdly, because the first kings were the chiefs of Anglo Saxon tribes, the invading angles and the invading saxons and they were the heads of those small tribes. So kin gave us quite a lot. But yeah, kids is a linguistic fossil. It doesn't exist in any other way other than in that phrase kitten kid. Speaking of linguistic fossils, you do keep a collection almost of fossils. These are lovely words that you feel have lost their currency and that you'd like to revive. What is in your trio of interesting words for today? Okay, so I like this one from the 17th century, all right, is a fossil this one. You'll find it nearly D, a gut, gut ling, and Gus is at the heart of this. And it means a great eater or a glutton.

Well, you're sending me to my bookshelf to actually take down the copy of this book I've had for 40 years and haven't read, but I'm going to read it now. The bluest eye, 1970, and I know I think on my shelves, I've also got another book by her called Paradise and one called love. I've not read any of these.

Which lovely night actually has helped us with Tony Morrison inside out and she's just happy to select some here. And this is just a truth. Love is never any better than the lover, wicked people love wickedly, violent people are violently weak people love weekly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe. There is no gift for the beloved. The lover alone possesses his gift of love. The loved one is shown neutralized frozen in the glare of the lovers inward eye. So that idea that actually receiving love actually, it's almost brings a long stasis. You can't budge from that idealized view of yourself. And do you remember actually when I think this is Sylvia Plath was saying very much the same thing when we read one of her poems that the male gaze particularly is unwavering and if there is an idealized few of you, it'll stay there, but actually that's horrible because it means you can't grow. So I really like the idea that the person who's being loved, it's not there as a gift. It's the lover alone that possesses the gift of love and who has that freedom. Good. Well, very intriguing.

"Welcome back, this is a special edition of something rhymes with purple because we are devoting it to one author. We've done that occasionally. And this today we're talking about Tony Morrison. I don't think that was her original name. Was it? I think that's a nom de plume. I think a real name was Chloe Antony wofford. When she was 12, Chloe joined the room Catholic Church, and she took us her baptismal name, Antony, people did this. It would take her even if you were a girl. You would take a male saint's name. So you could be called saint Michael's and Martin saint Anthony. But she then became known as Chloe Antony wofford. And she changed it to Tony when she was at university because apparently people really struggled to pronounce Chloe. So she then and she married Howard Morrison hence the Morrison bit. But yeah, Chloe was changed to Tony. Yeah. Yes. When I met her, the reason I met her was because I was being looked after during my gap year, and then when I went back and stayed with the same family. By really wonderful American academics. That's how I was lucky enough to meet and not that I knew she was anybody of significance because she at that stage hadn't made her reputation. But she was noted then because it was so unusual to find a black editor at a leading publishing house. And actually what was brilliant about Morrison as well is that she was totally unapologetic about her choice of subject. And she said very clearly, I'm writing for black people. In the same way that Tolstoy was not writing for me, a 14 year old colored girl from Lorraine, Ohio. I don't have to apologize or consider myself limited because I don't write about white people. Which is not absolutely true. She said there are lots of white people in my books, but the point is not having the white critics sit on your shoulder and to prove it. That is very interesting. To me, is universal. Poetry, like the one we've just read, rings true to everybody, whatever your background color or story. But the first book, her first book, the bluest eye, it's a novel that is very much part of her childhood, isn't it? What is the essence of the story? Yeah, it's all well, it's all about wanting to fit in and I think is a black woman feeling like you don't. And she, she said, in a forward to it, that she wanted to focus on how something is grotesque is the demonization of an entire race could take root inside the most delicate member of society, a child, the most vulnerable member, a female. And it's all about black girl who longs to have blue eyes. And is obsessed by white standards of beauty. And I remember when I was looking at the vocabulary of beauty and cosmetics, particularly in the middle of the 20th century, and there were so many products on sale for skin whitening as well. In a part of that same sort of desire. That desire to look a certain way because you didn't want to look the way that you looked and of course that's so central to say adolescents in so many different ways, but particularly as a teenage black girl, really. So it takes place in the 1940s this novel in Ohio.

"And it's a fable, essentially, about a blind woman who is visited by a group of young people, who almost tauntingly say to her, we have a bird in our hand, tell us, is it alive or dead? And it is all her contemplations on the life of language, the uses of language, whether it can fly, whether it's absolutely perfect, whether it can elucidate or cloud, I mean touch of all while there with a compress and liberate, whether it can honor people or whether it can actually undermine them. And it's all about the human experience and how we have this amazing tool available to us that can make any expression of it so magical, but also so dangerous, really. And she quotes Abraham Lincoln in it and his Gettysburg address is an example. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. And what Morrison explains is that trying to sum up the pain felt that from the Civil War. Is just impossible. And so instead, Abraham Lincoln has focused on the impossibility of capturing that and kind of talks about how it's going to linger in our memory and do we need to articulate it or will it kind of persist in a more sort of profound way. And then she says and listen to this, this is just perfect. We die Morrison says, that may be the meaning of life, but we do language. That may be the measure of our lives. Oh, it just gives me goosebumps really. Because it sums up also, what do you and I, in a way, believe, that the language is the words that will last. When the life is gone, think of William Shakespeare, this is the 400 anniversary of the publication of his plays, all his plays in that first failure over the first time. Whatever happened then, they're still there. Yeah. And listen to this. This is a this for me is just such a lovely demonstration of how Morrison used this language and you'll find this gift, this a perfect gift throughout her novels as well. So again, she's talking about language. Language can never pin down slavery, genocide, war, nor should it yearn for the arrogance to be able to do so. It's force it's felicity is in its reach towards the ineffable. Be it grand or slender, burrowing, blasting, or refusing to sanctify, whether it laughs out loud or is a cry without an alphabet. The choice word, the chosen silence, unmolested language surges towards knowledge, not its destruction. But who does not know of literature banned because it is interrogative, discredited because it is critical, erased because alternate and how many are outraged by the thought of a self ravaged tongue. Word work is sublime because it is generative. It makes meaning that secures our difference, our human difference, the way in which we are like no other life. Oh, and so it goes on. Honestly, it is so worth reading the whole fable. And it's almost like a riddle that this woman is presented with. And she gives a really oblique answer back and then sort of unpacks it.

I realized that almost a double meaning that the poem has in some areas because silence needs your fear, obviously as you're speaking that out loud, I think I would interpret that as silence requiring your fear. Yeah, exactly. But it's needing as a kneading dough, and it came in the 80s. Yes. And that, for me, has particular resonance because it's all about, you know, someone leans in and sees the fact that you've been crying. And you long to hear the words of reassurance and you long to hear someone sort of say, look, theological be rational. This is going to be okay to lull you towards the hollow day. But silence, there's silence, and it needs your fear as if it's kind of, you know, just molding it and manipulating it and doing nothing to sort of lay it. It's just giving it different shapes. So the kneading I've always read that way, but actually, it's interesting to read it the other way as well. Why does it speak to you? Well, just I think for those very reasons, which is that, you know, for sorrow and for melancholy that some people need almost a companion in their melancholy. So they need someone to come in and sit with them and accept that melancholy and say I'm very sorry, but not do anything to fix it. Whereas I am very much a person that wants to go right in and say, it'll be okay. And I'm going to make it okay. So there are fixes in life. And I think for me what really struck me was this you wait longing to hear the words of reason love or play.

Bowman, Larson give Hendrick sweep of front row at Daytona
"Time trials for the 2023 Daytona 500 are complete and Alex Bowman will lead the field to the green on Sunday as his teammate Kyle Larson paces on the outside of row one. As a driver, really all you can do is get the best launch you can, hit your shift points right. And try to run the best you can, not mess it up. Bowman's 181.696 mph lap puts him on the front row for a record of 6 straight times. I would love to be able to sit here and take a little bit of credit and I feel like my launch was okay and my shifts were good, but man, it's really on the team guys they get the job done. Morrison said timon and Rick Hendrick stresses the importance of winning the pole, but there's a bigger task at hand. Rick, it's really excited about that, but I know he'd be even more excited. One of the four of us somehow end up in victory lane on Sunday. With the front row now set, the remaining driver starting positions would be based on their finishes in the dual qualifying races.

Dr. Wallace Manheimer: Net Zero Could Be the End of Civilization
"The daily skeptic I want you to listen to this Chris Morrison Net zero that is net zero carbon emissions Will lead to the end of modern civilization Says a top scientist And of course he's right A damning indictment Of the new net zero political project has been made by one of the world's leading nuclear physicists In a recently published science paper doctor Wallace mannheimer said it would be the end of modern civilization Writing about wind and solar power argued it would be especially tragic when not only will this new infrastructure fail But what cost trillions trash large portions of the environment and be entirely unnecessary The stakes he added are enormous And this is where we're being pushed and dragged Doctor mannheimer holds a physics PhD from MIT and has had a 50 year career nuclear research Including work at the plasma physics division of the U.S. naval research laboratory He's published over a 150 science papers in his view there is certainly no scientific basis he says for expecting a climate crisis from too much carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in the next century or so He argues there's no reason why civilization can not advance using both fossil fuel power and nuclear power gradually shifting to more nuclear power
Amber Athey: Trump Needs to Figure out Personnel Problem
"Now I was going to have dick Morrison before but unlike you he didn't call in in time You actually figured out how to do this which is great We appreciate that He couldn't nail that down which is really not cool But whatever you made it so we appreciate that And I was going to talk to him about this book he has coming out about Trump in 2024 Now you know I have a lot of different friends who are on the Republican side and a lot of different opinions about Donald Trump Candidly People to run again in 2024 Morris theory on this is that he is a unique figure right now I know that's an overused word but he is the one guy right now who can pull from younger voters and minority groups unlike other candidates And that he may be the one guy who can pull this off in 2024 Your candid thoughts on that I'd love to hear them Well I think the democratic bench is so shallow that we're probably overestimating how difficult the competition is I think the SanDisk would easily win a nationwide presidential election But my big thing really was Trump running again is I like the guy I think he did a lot of great stuff but if he doesn't figure out this personnel problem then I don't want to see him win again and then end up pulling back on a lot of the conservative issues that he talked about on the campaign trail because his administration is filled with frankly traders who want nothing to do with his policies So I hope that if he does run again he's a lot more judicious with who he chooses to hire and actually brings people into the administration who are willing to work on this America first agenda and not try to undermine him from within and convince him to change course or change direction from what the base voted for him on

"The stone riders on the stall and a little part of me is thinking that maybe he did go to paris just to get away from all of this as much as anything else. While some charges went away it was the other things that happened in the the stuff involving the faa in federal charges. That weren't going away. That really were hanging over him. Maybe that mattered a little bit in the move that he made. I'm not giving. Jim morrison a pass for his behavior on the flight. Or anything like that. Because i was totally unacceptable completely unacceptable and wrong then now and everywhere in between as a role on the same page. Yeah there's no way that we would be supporting that but at the same time. I don't have a problem with dude whipping his dick out on stage while he's performing now if you were to rub one out. I think that's a big problem but again. If you pay rigi allen show you know what you're getting if jim morrison singing and his penis happens to fall out of his trousers big deal. I think that Things are different. Now there's they are always changing different now than they were then and if you look at it they were trying to get something they could string him up by his genitals with and they found that the bigger stick was the federal charges of what happened on the plane. If you want to avoid these situations in life then as now don't do stupid shit on airplanes end of story and of the discussion and really maybe to some degree. So we kind of wrap up of the discussion about whether morrison left because the pressure. I'm sure that the pressure was pretty intense. Look at the legal problems he had. And i think he was smart enough to know that the federal charges were a hell of a lot worse than the miami dade county charges or the The new haven charges. Because those were local authorities versus flying on a flight from la to phoenix. I'm betting wing you found the fbi file. You thought this'll be anything to read and learn about not knowing that we'd be sitting here on the whole thing apart just taken apart this at the i. File is very revealing about what we were doing with our government and artists that were over or on the edge back then the same way or similarly to what was going on in uk and that may be the biggest thing that i take away from all of this also the fact that they were very on top of what was going on in quote unquote counter culture as they called it. So i'm sure the amount of f. b. i. files from that time on musicians artists and people who spoke against the system are rather large. And i'm sure that if you alive during that time and had an arrest record or did anything of that nature in your youth during that time. You might have a page or two in the fbi. Archives stopped at. Don't tell anybody. I i'm not doing anybody about your lips. Lift out what it comes down to is some of the things marcus that we've suspected for a while That he maybe didn't even intend on coming back and doing anything in the future with the doors or anything else in other words.

How powerful people will try to make things happen. That are on a personal purely personal. Not even a political agenda. You wanna play politics. That's one thing but when you take something like this and some of the words that were exchanged or offensive to me as an american. I agree with you on that and i don't understand why the government went after people like this so hard well really nasty. Words came from that one guy that broadcast guy.

Delta's Force: Australia's Covid Plans Crumble
"Australia has just chalked up its worst daily count of covert nineteen infections. Meanwhile the country is dramatically shifting. Its approach to the pandemic as prime minister. Scott morrison outlined on monday. The national plan we've developed and degrade is a pathway to leaving with disbars that is i'll go to live with this bars not to live in fear of it. Most restrictions will be eased when the country is about three quarters vaccinated because this cannot go on forever. This is not a sustainable way to live in this country. Australia has been one of a handful of countries to take a zero. Koga approach with strict border restrictions and rigorous contact. Tracing life for much of the pandemic has been fairly free but then in june a man infected with the delta variant wandered through a sydney shopping mall seating an alarming wave of infections as early as cova nineteen cases spot to a new record high on sunday. Health officials have warned. The country is vulnerable to more deaths and hospitalizations given just twenty seven and a half percent of the national population is fully vaccinated. New zealand is suffering too with a spike in cases. That's led to a massive push in vaccinations for today. All adults over age thirty or eligible the plans that countries have been working to were all in response to last year's variance of the corona virus. Now a lot of those tactics must evolve as well was trailer like several other countries in the pacific bruce youth as zero covet strategy from the very beginning so they have managed to keep cases very very low throughout the entire pandemic. Slovakia trump is our healthcare correspondent for much of the past eighteen months. People were able to visit friends or go to shops restaurants and even fielders but now it seems like their strategy is no longer tenable with the delta variant. Which is highly contagious.

And i went find in and fell in love with the entire album. But especially that song. Ever since donald. 'cause it just it was so different. Yeah so so the structure of it. The the big thing that hit me is the that when you have mean you talking about an iconic song from an iconic goddess lake. jim morrison. Okay jim jason is going to be onstage with someone else in and step aside for three quarters of song. Let someone else saying one of his signature songs right. Never gonna happen. Any oddest any any big name honest with some cigna songs being able to kind of do that as probably pretty rare yet he step aside and let this guy and his name. Is brian kennedy. Take three quarters of this of the vocals and he provided that lasts for us in. Did some You know did some fills. Some killer feels near the end when they did the last chorus which i think is so unique and that you know not that i'm no van morrison. He's the he's the king of everything and he's wonderful and the other stuff. But i just think it's really unique to hear such a major artist Kind of hand. That over i thought at first this was when it without knowing the context of Of hearing it that some was covering it and all of a sudden he showed up on stage unannounced and that's when the crowd was cheering her those put come to find out that he's on stage a whole time just stepping back and lane. Brian kennedy. Who is one of his backup singers for years. Kinda take center stage and sing the song and if you think about it you know th the the music at the beginning you know. It's going to be tupelo honey because of of the build up earning you know the the the great guitar licks on really strip down very very smooth being. But then when you hear his voice or his vocals at Twenty four seconds in. It's like what what is this. How much higher it is and how. He's just kind of phrasing it.

If you're a fan of using of like black creators using alternative genres to like tell. The stories of african americans the show atlanta by donald. Glover on hulu is a really good and really weird. Kind of surrealist is the best way to describe it about a black man in atlanta. Trying to make it as a rapper and one of his friends played by keith. Stanfield who i'm a. I'm a big fan of all of work. He's just kind of always in this other dimension in just he's never quite there and he'll say these things on you're just like what and the plot is very surrealist. It's it's very bizarre show but really really well written. And then if you're gonna read another tony morrison book i would say try tar baby Similarly more toni morrison she has so much out there. That beloved is actually the first part in what is referred to as a trilogy. the characters don't continue at similar themes so i'm intrigued. How it got dubbed the trilogy. If that was morrison's doing or publishers but the two books that came after beloved where jazz and paradise. So if you're looking to continue in this very similar vein stick with those and then otherwise We've talked on the podcast before about friday black. It's a short story collection by nana kwami agyei brenna which uses horror to talk about the black experience in america. And oh off time ahead. I just remembered her body in other parties. Some of the stories in that as well our horror to talk about the expense of women and that is by carmen. Maria machado's the author of that collection. Okay changing all the gears shifting to a completely different dimension what are things that are bringing joy lately what are you. Currently obsessed with recently discovered the album american boyfriend by kevin abstract. It's an older one. He's from the boy group. Brock hampton which. I'm not a huge fan of. But i really love kevin. Abstract sola work. And then atypical season. Three is out on netflix. I have not watched yet. But i am about to and then today as of this moment what. I'm currently obsessed with is a new story from the olympics about the two top. High jumpers wants from qatar and once from italy. And they both like keep one upping each other and keep matching each other until there's one height that neither of them can jump and so they like just give each other a big hug and like decide to share the gold medal. This it's so adorable. I'm i'm obsessed with it. And they both look so happy end Hugging it's great. I'm like if this was all of what the olympics was. I would be down. So i recently moved out of our old apartment. A now. i severely downsized in a positive way. so was getting rid of a bunch of things had a whole stack of these graphic. Tees that i love the look of the front of in the design on it like they're all like longer or kind of boxy or like just like i don't wear them as much and have been really into crop up slightly so i took a note from literally everyone who's been doing this since like twenty ten in like cutting t shirts but i just got up a bunch of my old graphic tees into crops and it's great i feel like i have a whole new wardrobe and yeah it's awesome.

"I don't like seek it out. But like you know intellectually. I appreciate why it exists. Said what it does and so i kind of the lens that we wanted to take to like understand this novel so being the prolific researchers that we are we googled elements of horror to kind of walk through what defines the horror genre specifically the cow more than us so of course. We found things like suspense and monsters and unsettling qualities something. That's a mystery all these different things to kind of like add up to what makes it scary as well as some kind of straightforward plotlines like as horror dot. Fm refers to as the complex discovery plot. So you start out with the onset or existence of a horrific event says evidence of it Discovering it's 'cause confirmation of its cause in then confrontation that leads to either victory or defeat depending on how you look at it. So those kind of elements we see and it's not like a one. Plus one equals horror. Miss all these elements together and you have a you know a pulitzer prize. Winning novel obviously morrison is doing a lot here via. Let's say let's start out with this style and how tony morrison is approaching horror. Yeah like for me. The first thing that tipped me off that this wasn't just regular historical fiction was her style of writing she's got this very like it's very melodic artsy but in like a really creepy way. It's like really other worldly. Like i was saying reading it kind of felt like a dream like something that happened to a different version of me like the way her prose is just really. I guess bizarre. In like the literary sense you know of being kind of outside of the norm her her sentences kind of move around a lot and she uses punctuation. Sometimes she does end. She moves between quotation and thought similar to wolf actually in a way where she moves in between people's minds in a way that never you never quite sure where you're at physically like a creepy version of mrs dalloway with murder plus murder. I think the jumping around in time part that you mentioned like who's point of view. Are we seeing this from. That's are really likes. threw me off. I think.

"Morrison is one is examples of someone who had a long and successful career that we will see so much come from and see her own ideas and work kind of evolve over time before she passed at the late age. That's tony morrison. I'm sure i left much out. So if you have a favorite thing you know about tony. More senator favorite quote or something us. We love to hear okay well. This book is tricky to summarize. So i'm gonna be fairly general here because it's it exists kind of in two different timelines and not a lot happens on a day to day level you know a lot of like sitting around the house and like thinking thoughts about him and remembering things is kind of the plot so basically present day timeline. One i'm seth on her daughter. Denver live in this kind of haunted house. The address is two to four and so they call the house to do for. It's like a it has a name basically they don't call it home. They got two to four and the plot sort of get started because a man from her past shows up his name is paul d and they sort of begin a relationship and it starts bringing up memories of basically how they know each other is. They were enslaved at the same place and he also knew. deceased husband and a girl shows up who denver. And seth i believe is the embodiment of says. Dad daughter who they called beloved who they think has been the one haunting the house this whole time but beloved shows up and like a physical form and all of these memories get stirred up and so we follow kind of the plot of cephas life of how she got herself to freedom and how she ended up where she is now and she comes to live with her mother-in-law in free territory. I'm her mother. Laws name is baby suggs. And she's kind of spiritual leader in their town so we sort of moved back and forth between flashbacks and present day. I'm kind of exploring south. A story we learn about how her husband died. How they got the free land and eventually we learn how beloved died and why southern denver are so sure that the person haunting their house and the physical form of this girl is her dead daughter and we find out. It's because seth killed her and was planning on killing all our children so that they wouldn't be taken into slavery when they're her former slave masters shows up. Yeah that's the kind of ocean. Shit moment that i was referring to earlier because you sort of go the whole time assuming that the really cruel slave masters the one who killed beloved and then you find out that it was seth a herself as so. That's the story and it sounds a lot like the real very real story that it was based off of so that.

"Of reading it besides like this vague sense of feeling like a dream is the way that she writes it. Her style is very dreamlike. And we're going to talk about that more in a minute. But i think that contributes to why i like if feels like i read this in an alternate reality and i'm trying to remember you know it's it's sort of exists outside of time but something very visceral memory that i have of the book. The two vendors the scene. Where baby songs has this kind of. It almost had a similar vibe. To me of a seance in the woods of this kind of spiritual thing that existed outside of time and then the like oh shit moment when you realize that killed beloved wailers that like holy shit kind of like brain exploding moment where just sinks into your body and you're like oh. I was not expecting. That really really stuck with me and is the main reason why i remember liking up so to me. That's a sign of good horror book. Right where the the big reveals are like really. You're just do not see them coming. So yeah that-that's like my main experience of this book is like i went to an alternate reality and read it but i remember the ending so i understand. You did a lot of research. His author bio so. I'm curious to hear while here's what happens. Is that author bios in often. When we read a younger author contemporary author know. there's just like some basic information about them out there but when we read some of these like you know huge names. The biggest names in literature. There's so many details in all of it feels so important to share. It's available everywhere as far as like all the stuff about their lives. So i'll i'll give you the greatest hits of tony morrison. Maybe not even greatest hits the high level things to know about tony morrison so most of this comes in the national women's history museum website as well as a slew of other things. When i googled. Tell me more about lorraine ohio in random things like that so anyways.
