A highlight from Time Travel to 1994: A Journey into the Music and Movies of that year.
"Well, here we are, episode 119. And on this episode, myself in the wrecking tube, Mark Smith and Lou Colicchio from the Music Relish Show. We'll be talking about the year 1994, in music and movies I think, it's always interesting. So sit back, relax, break out your flannel shirt, your grungy jeans, and enjoy 1994 music. It was an interesting year, so I think you'll enjoy it. More interesting than what Todd Zauchman thinks it is. He thinks it's nothing, so we'll see. The KLFB studio presents Milk Crate and Turntables, a music discussion podcast hosted by Scott McLean. Now, let's talk music, enjoy the show. Thank you, Amanda, for that wonderful introduction, as usual. Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends, and welcome to the podcast. You know the name, I'm not gonna say it. We're streaming live right now over Facebook, YouTube, Dlive, Twitch, and X, formerly known as Twitter, and I don't know how many other live platforms. Well, it's gonna be a good show tonight. It's gonna be an interesting show tonight. Yeah, 1994. As I said in the intro, my friend Todd Zauchman just absolutely sent me a text destroying the year 1994. Oh, I just looked up 1994, I don't know what you're gonna talk about, there's a few things and I don't know how you're gonna make a whole show out of it, and good luck with that, because that's how he talks. That's exactly how he talks. I'm just gonna do this, and you know, it's not gonna be a good, blah, blah, blah, blah. That's how he talks. Now, he'll deny that, and you'll never know if that's the way he talks or not. He'll just have to take my word for it. I'm Todd Zauchman, and I don't know about 1994. Well, enough about him. He'll probably be piping in pretty soon, but yeah, 1994, it's a good year. It was a good year for Mark Smith from the Music Rellers Show and Luke Colicchio from the Music Rellers Show. That's for damn sure. It was. What's up, gentlemen? It was a really good year. How you doing? I was just guessing. I figured for 94, listen, we were all younger, so it was better. It was a big year. Hey. So I have to stop right here. Dave Phillips, who's been watching the podcast from pretty much day one, Patty Yossi. Hi, Patty. Good evening. I love you. Dave Phillips, for the last couple of weeks, he's piped in at the end, and he's like, I missed it. Like something's changed. Ah, Tiffany Van Hill. That's my buddy. That's my buddy, Tiffany. She's one of the people that teaches me how to work with horses. Oh. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So. And she knows what she's talking about. She's modest, but she's very good at what she does. As are all of my friends and teachers, trainers, mentors from The Herd Foundation in Delray Beach, Florida. It's a nonprofit if you're in the mood to donate today. Look them up. Herd Foundation. Give us some money. Nah, I'm not going like that. No. No, we do. We help veterans. We help veterans, and so it's a good cause. But back to Tiffany. Yep. That's my buddy. Good evening. The Herd Foundation teaches us so much. That's right. That's right. Maybe I'll do a Herd Foundation podcast. You should. Since I'm pretty good at it. You're going to have horses on? What's the horse named after the cookie? Huh? Isn't there a horse named after a cookie? What are some of the horses' names? Oh, Fig Newton. Fig Newton. Yeah. Fig Newton. That's my boy. That's my boy. Good looking horse. Yes. Yes, he is. And we have Stitch. Fig Newton is a retired dressage horse, dancing horse, right? Echoes of Echo and the Bunny Men bring on the dancing horses. We have Stitch. He's a retired racehorse. We have Miss America. She's a retired jumper. Then we have two mini horses. We have Cinnamon. She was a cot horse. You know, pulls the kids around. As would be Sammy. Sammy's the one that looks like Kaja Gugu for you people from the 80s. Looks like Lamal. It looks like Lamal from Kaja Gugu. Gotta do. And he was saved from a kill pen. Yeah. But he's a mini, but he thinks he's a Clydesdale. What do they do with horses after that? Is that the proverbial glue factory? All right. You know what? Right away. Penalty box. Oh. He's raining on my parade. I'm in a good mood. Now I'm all bummed out. Thanks. You feel sad for the drummer now. This is going to be a horrible show now. Leave it to the drummer. Right, Mark? Leave it to the drummer. Get out. It's always the drummer's fault. That's right. See, Tiffany says, that does not exist past our gates, Lou. Because nobody wants to talk. Back to the penalty box. Great start to the show. Lou is just in a mood tonight. I think he's been hitting the whistle. What's going to happen? You're going to come back and it's going to be an empty chair. He's very ornery tonight. Right away. He's very ornery. All right. He's filling his oats, as they would say. Yeah. All right. Lou's back. I'm all right. I'm all right. Okay. Enough about horses, although I could now, at this point, talk about horses for two hours. I love it. I love it. But instead, gentlemen, first of all, how's things on the music relish show? You. Take it away, Lou. Sure. It's fine. It was such an awful show. I thought I said the wrong show for a second there. It's been nothing short of amazing. Don't jump over each other to answer that question. It's always fun. Last week was fun. We got knocked down a bit by Warner Brothers because we played a clip of an America song featuring Dan Peake. Yeah. You're going to watch that. Yeah. We talked through the whole thing, but Spotify is much cooler than YouTube. YouTube sucks like that. YouTube, they have a very strong algorithm. They can kiss my rosy red ass over that. That's right. You tell them, Lou. Fuckers. That's right. Get me kicked off YouTube. That's right. Let me see. John Morris, he was our shift commander. When I met him, I was, I think, a two striper, and he was what they called a butterbot. He was a second lieutenant, I believe. He said, tell them stories from the Nipah Hut in the Philippines. That's a big no. That's a whole other podcast, but they would never make it on the air. Just leave it at that. It's like a chain of Nipah Huts? No. It was a bar slash club called the Nipah Hut. Tell one story. No. They had a giant spaceship that would come down from the top. It's kind of like George Clinton in parliament. At the end of the show, this big spaceship came down from the top. Smoke. Like you said, parliament fucking pelican. Then the thing went open, and everyone would walk up and get up on stage, all those drunk GIs. Like, yeah, I'm going in the spaceship, and you go down these stairs, and you're in a fucking basement. I don't think it was a basement. It's like something from a fucking horror movie. How do you get out? And then somebody goes, this way, this way, go, go, go, go. That's the cleanest story I can tell you. It's the cleanest story I can tell you. Sounds like fun. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. I got a story for you off the air one of these days. So okay, music relish show's going good. Excellent. I just wanted to say, Lou brought up, he made the show. His segment on bad love songs. That will go down in history as some of the best podcasting ever. Bad love songs? Really bad love songs. The worst love songs of all time, like in rock. It's a deep vein. Is that something, is that like content I could probably like borrow with Perry Mind? Because I'd love to hear that list someday. We voted him off the board. We're no longer a false triumvirate democracy. Wait a minute. We toppled the AI monarchy. There's three of us on this one. Are you two going to overthrow me too? Are you like rebels? None of those stories you're told, no. They're wrecking too. Instead I'll start calling you the Sandinistas. The hostile takeovers. You go on podcasts just to take them over? Like Amiens took over the White House. Really, yeah. Yeah, we could do that. I would love to. Maybe next week we'll do, we'll take a break from the years and we'll do like a, kind of a jambalaya, you know, of stuff. Like throw some music news in there. We'll do some trivia. Maybe I'll come up with some questions for you guys. You could give us that deep vein of worst love songs ever. And it's funny, we noticed that several of them made everyone's list of worst love songs. So it's got to be universally bad. Okay. If everyone said that, that fucking song. Then there were a couple where I said I liked the song, but Lou and Perry were like, what? I'm always, you know, on the one side. Yeah, the one. When it falls into like that kind of metal, metal category, you have a soft spot. Air metal. Metal ballads. Oh my God. How I grew up. Yeah, yeah. As young as Ron Mark, you didn't have to deal with those 70s ones. Yeah, that's true. I did. This fucking guy. Blah. See what I mean? He's setting the bar high. Remember, this is how he talks. I don't think there's anything good about 1994. Blah. So he talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yeah, well, an American Arnold Schwarzenegger. He talks like Arnold Schwarzenegger without the accent. We're going to pass the bar on this one. I am here. Let me see if you can entertain me. 1994. Blah. All right. So let's actually get right into 1994. Yeah. So we'll start on January 19th, 1994. Bryan Adams becomes the first major Western music star to perform in Vietnam since the end of the Vietnam War. Oh, shit. Bryan Adams. Bryan Adams, yeah. Wow. On January 21st to February, as it's spelled, the Big Day Out Festival takes place, again, expanding from those previous years. Blah, blah, blah. Auckland, New Zealand. The festival is headlined by Soundgarden, Ramones, and Bjork. Nice. That's an interesting... Probably each night there were headlines. I would love to see Bjork. Me too. I would never want to see the Ramones. They'll never get back together again. Unless they perform in the Pet Sematary. Yeah. Hey, Lou, can you put him in the green room? No, I'd like that one. That's a good one. Come on, there's a little crossover. Put him in the green room. Put him in the green room. Okay, yeah, yeah. Oh, it's going to be a long show. It's going to be a long one tonight. I feel better about myself now. Got a little redemption? The redemption song? Yes. I got a Buffett story for you. Oh, yeah? His one song was The Pirate Looks at 40. He would segue into Bob Marley's redemption song. Oh, jeez. And it didn't quite... Wait a minute. Buddy, that is the quickest way to get to the penalty box. I'm not playing it, though. I know you're not. You're poking the rhino right now. I'm a guitarist. You're poking the rhino right now. You're not a rhino, you're a nice guy. Come on, we went through that last week. And so, as I've been saying each week, I'm just going to say right now, where's Jack? Okay, and we'll move on from that. Hey, Jack. Hey, Jack, please come back. He didn't listen before, so I don't think he's listening now. Let's see. January 25th, Alice in Chains released their Jar of Flies album, which makes its U .S. chart debut at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first ever EP to do that. Right? But they still are always talked about as like number three or number four out of the big four. Big four being? Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden. And Alice in Chains. Alice in Chains is never getting that kind of... Whereas... That first album, the record company made them sound like another band. Yeah. And that's not their fault. They were produced that way. Dirt was a great album. Yes, yes. And Layne Staley was one of the greatest frontmen ever. Just as cool as the other side of the pillow, as they say. Yeah. voice Very unique also. Today we were talking about what we were going to talk about in the show. And he goes, when I saw the videos, he goes, I didn't match his face with the way he looked. Right? He said he was expecting like a grungy, more... No, he was slick. He was slick. In the Man in the Box video, he's got the kind of long... But then he changed it up. He slicked the hair back, he wore the shades, you know. Just turned into a... Suzanne McPhail. Another one of my horse people. She's the one that introduced me to that whole thing. And she said, who's Jack? That's right, I guess. At this point. On January 29th, The Supremes' Mary Wilson is injured when her Jeep hits a freeway median and flips over just outside of LA. Wilson's 14 -year -old son is killed in the accident. What a good day. Ah, this fucking... I saw this and I was like... Dead horses was a bummer. I know, I know. I saw this and I'm like, there's no way around this. February 1st, Green Day releases their breakthrough album, Dookie. Ushering in the mid -1990s punk revival. Dookie eventually achieves diamond certification. Now, I did like them back then. I actually did. I was stationed in Southern California in Riverside. And I decided to get like a side job. You know, I was in the Air Force. But I was like, I want to make a little more money. I want to do something. So I got a job at a record store. Cool. Was it Spencer's or something? Forget the name of it. Oh, Spencer's. They sold all the trinkets, too. No, no, it wasn't Spencer's then. It was something like that. It was a chain. Hot topic. They sold DVDs, too. FYE. No, it wasn't that. I'll remember it. I was working there when Dookie came out and the fucking whole wall was covered with Dookie CDs and they were flying off the shelves. It had a pretty fresh sound. It was fresh then. And coming off the 80s were kind of slick in a lot of ways, except for some of the real heavy alternative. But to hear a song like that on the radio, that was like hearing Smells Like Teen Spirit on mainstream rock radio. Good drummer, too. As a band, whether you like him or not, I think he's really good. Billy Joe Armstrong. Oh, Trey Cool. Trey Cool, yeah. February 7th, Blind Melons lead singer is Shannon Poon forced to leave the American Music Awards ceremony because he is loud and disruptive behavior. Poon is later charged with battery assault, resisting arrest, and destroying a police station telephone. Now, this is the dude that sang, you know, And I don't really care if I sleep all day And he's in the daisy field, so you think he's like this really, like, chill dude. And like, you know, me and the B -girl, man, you know. The B -girl, yes. And the tap -dancing B -girl, and like, I'm just this dude's a fucking lunatic. He was taking substances that made him. Oh, yeah. That was a short career. Was it him that did a duet with Guns N' Roses? What was the video, a song from Guns N' Roses with a video where they're up on like a water tower and they jump into the water or something. I forget what it was called. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe they did it with him.
Fresh update on "nirvana" discussed on Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast
"Well, dudes, just got off of a 48. Up four times after midnight last night, and now I got to talk to you two idiots, so really wish I didn't have to do this, wish I was upstairs and asleep, but here we go. This is the commitment we've made, Josh. You're holding it together pretty well, man. Yeah, you look great. Pretty well. Dan and I were on the front half of that 48. The two of us rode the box together in a rare opportunity. We've only done this maybe three times, maybe four times in our career. It was full of some entertainment, I could say that much, man. Dom, how are you doing, man? How many price checks on the box that day between the two of you added combo? We don't look at price, man. That sounds dumb. I know it sounds dumb. I go weeks without looking at the price. I'm not even kidding. No price checks. I think the number is zero. Our friend Jim will hit us up whenever the price is doing something interesting. He'll be like, hey, you guys see what's going on today? And I can honestly say most of the time, I'm like, no, what's up? And he's like, dude, it's up $1,000 today. I guess I'm, I don't know, in the middle of these bear markets, the price gets boring and I stopped paying attention to it. I'm not going to lie. During the bull market, when this thing is skyrocketing, I am watching it like a hawk. It's entertaining, but it's not fun when it's just boring or shitting the bed. When it's shitting the bed, I especially don't look. I don't want to tempt myself to do something stupid, which I've got a proclivity to do. We've reached Bitcoin nirvana is basically what we just expressed. We're enlightened. We're there. Hopefully, the rest of our audience can arrive to the spot we're in. And working on the box. That's impressive. If you guys aren't doing price checks on the ambulance while cruising through, just as like a stress relief tactic, then, you know, you guys are at a high level. So that's aspiring. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yep. Um, we, the three of us are slated later this week to be on a panel at Pacific Bitcoin in Los Angeles. And so today is a straight dry, dry run here. We're going in with no lube today, and then we'll see how much KY we need to apply later in the week. Um, you're referring to, you're referring to tubes, of course, right? Of course. Yeah. You're talking about a medical procedure. KY does make our ET tube lubricant. It does say KY anal lube on it. We just slather that right on that seven ET tube and right into someone's gullet. Yep. Yeah. Got to get past the field goal posts. Yep. Dude, our numbers, by the way, from I'm probably telling too much here, but our innovation numbers have gone pretty south. We don't know why our medical directors concerned came out, had to have a talking to all the paramedics wondering why we're missing so much. I don't know what the deal is. Are you guys still hitting? Are you guys just better paramedics than we are out there in Santa Monica or what's the deal? I think so. I think that's probably it. No, we're still hitting pretty well. And then we have the assisted tubes, you know what I mean? Like that, that, um, um, what do you guys use as far as like, um, other than the ET tube, you guys use the kink? Yeah. Yeah. It's a video laryngoscope. So we can visualize those vocal cords and anything else that's jammed down your throat. We had a great one, man, where one of an intern hit this ET tube and the guy made a full recovery, ended up seeing him out and about, and I was on the call and I mean, the, the, the intern just killed it. Like, like, you know, maybe that's not the best term. We didn't kill it. He did very well on the call. Yeah. Yeah. And, and, uh, save this guy's life. So yeah, you know, um, you guys, you guys will get back to, to good, to good numbers. We're talking, we're talking shopping for the, for the few medical people. I think our problem is that we went to video laryngoscopy from the old school and we were using the King the way we were using the old one. And it's, it's maneuvered very differently, much, much more delicate, much less abrasive. You're doing less, you know, pulling up and out. I think that's part of the reason we'll get our numbers squared away. Best paramedics on the planet at our department, Dom.
A highlight from Shadows of a Silhouette - Fortune Favours The Fortunate
"Welcome to Let's Be Frank, the men's mental health podcast. Join us as we break the stigma, embrace vulnerability and prioritize mental health in men. Together, let's use your voice. Guys, welcome back to Let's Be Frank, the home of men's mental health. Today, we have got a brilliant rock and roll quarter in the house that go by the name of Shadows of a Silhouette. And the sound is a fusion of alternative, rebellious and personal vibes. Coming from the heart of England, this band has released over 25 original tracks on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon. We're joined by Nathan Tyler, who, along with friend Greece, have been creating music for four years, turning out more than 50 songs on SoundCloud and major platforms. Drawing inspiration from legends like Arctic Monkeys, Bowie and Nirvana, the music has even graced BBC introduces for the East Midlands. And they've rocked the Metrodome in Nottingham. They've also played the Quarry Stage during the Wyandotte Festival in front of 2000 fans, an experience that fueled their passion for music. This year, they have hit the main stage at Wyandotte Festival, producing an unforgettable show. So guys, girls, stay tuned as we dive into the guys world and discover what drives this band's unstoppable journey. But as always, let's check in with resident host Mr Ryan Smith. How are you doing, mate? What an introduction that was, eh? I'll tell you what the hell's going on. This is like the big time now, isn't it? This is just like, I'm going to say so rock and roll, but that's like, I think that's more like 60s rather than the 90s, I don't know. Anyway, I just know I'm older than most of this band put together. So, yeah, no, absolutely brilliant to get these guys on. I'm feeling good. Started watching the ice hockey today, you know, a little bit late jumping on with you just because of the ice hockey. But do you know what? I'm in a good place. So, yeah, guys, welcome to the show. How are you all doing? Well, thank you. Thank you for having us on. You say you're a lot older than us all put together, but we all know, mate, you're still 21 in that. Hard to show if it was, but we break through and still look like a one year old messing about. Bless you, bless you, bless you. Panthers or Steelers? Don't mention that second one. No, if you mention that second one, you mention that second one and we'll just stop this right now. All right. No, no, no. I didn't realise. That's all right then. That's all right then. Yeah, yeah, Panthers, Panthers through and through. No, but guys, honestly, welcome to the show. We've been throwing a couple of conversations back and forth for a bit now and it's finally here. So, you know what? Guys, introduce yourselves. Well, we're Shadows of a Silhouette and, of course, we're a four piece band from Derby. We just, Derbyshire, we try and focus on sounds that are a bit more like authentic, like through and through. Even all of us playing our own instruments on songs like you wouldn't think that to be something that you'd be lacking in the music industry. But actually, nowadays it's more dominated by electronic simulated sounds. I'm Nathan Brown, the lead singer. I've got Rhys Carter, lead guitarist. And Ferg's in Corfu at the minute, but we've also got Tyler Anderson, our drummer. Fantastic. So, yeah, guys, I managed to listen to your latest track that's going to be released, I think, later this month. You know, well, later in September. We're recording this at the beginning of September. But, you know, you're going to be releasing that one. I'll tell you what, I was listening to my car on the way back from Mansfield earlier and it's catchy and I get it. You know, it's I think it speaks. So, yeah, I'm looking forward to that being released. It's my personal favourite song that we've written for a long time. Yeah, it's fun to play in all life. Yeah, it's quite political. It's a banger. But, you know, it's really like a partial political. It doesn't really speak to supplement anybody else, any political party or belief system. It's more for the common man, isn't it? Yeah, it's just more for the common good side of politics. The politics doesn't actually get spoken about in politics. No, no. And, you know, I actually thought, you know, it actually reminded me of sort of Age of the Shadow puppets. Like Shadow puppets? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. So, yeah, it's that sort of... You're sorry? It's funnily enough the first band I ever saw live, actually. Yeah, that's why it's had that sort of beat to it, that sort of rhythm to it. And it just, yeah, you know, it was good, it was good. Well, I'll take that. Anyway, no, absolutely. What was the whole process behind writing that song? So, what was your thinking behind it and kind of how long has it taken you to... Well, I had a riff kicking about from the start of lockdown, really. Obviously, we couldn't practice, so... We were writing other songs. Got me loop pedal, yeah, and got the riff down. But we didn't really touch it until about, when was it? Like January? It started kicking it about, didn't we? We got some drums on it, and then Nathan wrote, as he does with most of our tracks, wrote all the lyrics for it. And, yeah, it's... It came quite quick, though, didn't it? It was just one of them, like, kick your fingers movement when you and us rehearsing. And then it just, we just all looked at each other and just thought, this is awesome, this. And then Nathan's writing side to it. It just... Put the structure together. Put the structure together, and then, like I say, it was just about... The words just came straight out. It's this one. Yeah, it's what we opened up the main stage with one or two as well. Yeah, it's brilliant. It's quite... Yeah, like, straight in your face, isn't it? Tempo, it's got tempo, it's got attitude. It's like hitting a knockout punch in the first round. It is a cracker, it is truly a cracker. It is really a cracker. Yeah, the lyrics, the lyrics. And it was, as you say, it... It's just the whole idea of that track. Straight in your face. Yeah, that's what we wanted. It's a song to get people's attention, really. And then it's... You know, who are these? And then it's... We've got you in the palm of his hand then. Crick up your ears. Also, it's an expression of that... Those little thoughts we all have about, you know, on a daily basis, when we're considering what's going on in the world around us. It's just a... No. With our ability to create media, to add into the great ocean of it, we think certain songs come out in principle, or because of principle, that something to have been spoken like that, or in a way, just for some... It can be heard from somewhere by someone. It's just about the rich going rich and the poor going poor early on, isn't it? Well, it's about the trap. We're all trapped. It seems like we're... The fucking mouse trap's already come down over us, and we're all stuck, you know. But life keeps going by for everyone as an individual. But there's a stranglehold on a lot of us, personally, as people trying to get through this world, but it's so slow for some people who don't have to suffer it. So, looking at kind of that... You know, looking at the song, are you speaking from your own sort of backgrounds and stuff as well, your own experiences? I think it's kind of impossible not to, of course. Like, when you are writing Straight From the Heart, not all of our songs are, right? Because sometimes it's nice to write a song about an idea that doesn't paint a memory. It's just... But then again, on the other hand of that, a lot of our tunes are personal anyway. Especially over the last couple of years, with what's gone off with Reece and Nathan and stuff like that. So, it's a way that I sort of... I'm sure Nathan's probably the same as to get these thoughts that are in your head. I have to get them out on paper and write them down about lyrics or poetry and then channel that into some of that music, which then becomes something tangible. The thoughts that you've got in your head, for me, it's the perfect way to sort of... Say what you want over it. Yeah, get it out and... To make room. Then it becomes relatable, because although it's personal to you, other people can then relate to that and hear what you're saying. Like, yeah, I know what you're on about here. Well, certainly we want to know what it feels like when they can hear the fact that we're getting something off our chest in these songs. Yeah, yeah. Because it's not whitewashed at all, really. We all work full -time, full -time jobs. We didn't go to uni or study music or anything. We came together because we all... Look like rockin' art. Look like rockin' art. We think it's one of the best things in the world. It's a freedom from life. That's good the thing about music, where it doesn't matter what race you are, doesn't matter what religion you are, everybody can come together and just be in the same field or at a venue and enjoy the same thing. Everything goes out the window. It's a universal language. And there's a lot of culture where we come from, a lot of working culture of people working really hard, raising families, but not really making enough time for themselves. We come from an area in the East Midlands where lot a of insufferable mental health is right there on the surface, but people don't even talk about it. They all know what's going on with each other. I know Jack's got a question for you, but obviously we've just jumped on beforehand and where I live, it's actually, what, five, ten minutes from... Not even ten minutes, is it, from where a couple of you guys live? So I get what you're saying. You're looking at the smaller sort of outlying villages that are ex -coal mining places. It's a similar sort of state in Wales. It's a similar sort of state in Lancashire, Yorkshire and things like this. And it's these forgotten roots. And listening to that track that you've shared with us, you can really hear what you guys are trying to achieve. So it's more of an observation rather than a question. But I know Jack's got a question for you. Before we come, because obviously we're going to look at your personal journeys and kind of delve into there and prod around a little bit, but while we're on the subject of why not, I want to ask you guys, how was that experience going main stage? It didn't even seem like that much of... There was a feeling of being out of place, but also at the same time being exactly where we're going. Yeah, it wasn't imposter syndrome, but you feel like... The best thing is if you feel like you've earned it, but then you also feel that if you're not getting nervous for a gig like that, I think you've got to get nervous to some degree, because at the end of the day, you're entertaining people and everyone's around on you to put a good show out. And then we just hope we deliver. And that's like, it doesn't matter how much of a buzz we've got to have to play. And the first thing I said to people closest to me was, did you like enjoy it? It's not about us, it's about the fans. Yeah. But the experience is just... What was that feedback like? Oh, brilliant, yeah. Absolutely awesome.
A highlight from Episode 122 - Sept. 17th, 2023 - B.A.N.S
"All right, all right, all right, all right. Welcoming you guys to another lovely episode of On The Record Podcast. I am DJ Intense, your host the most. And to the left of me, I have I am Walt. What's up, Walt? I'm about to say another word, my guy. If you guys heard earlier, you know, we were just doing some things off cameras. They're off the record. Things we don't, we're not going to bring on the record. And if we are, you're not going to get it. Unless you paid for it to Patreon. You know? Yeah, me too. That voice you hear right now, but there's no other than Ceddi said, what's up Ceddi? The infamous C -E -D. What's up people? How you doing people? I'm doing all right, I'm doing all right, man. You know, we took some time off. It was Labor Day weekend. Yeah. And then the final weekend, which is work weekend. Dude, we were work, work, work, work, work. Nonstop. Dude, I just figured they don't. Almost 90 hours of work. OT, OT. Man. One day was 20 hours of work. That's the state job. I can't wait till you quit that job. You and I both, brother. I need to make some money, but working like a slave ain't it, man? Nah. Bob Brock just said it. You think that you can get by with this hard work alone? Nah, you're fooling yourself. You're fooling yourself. Used to do that, but now you're doing that. It's a lie. It's a lie. It's a myth. All people is you do hard work, and you'll become a successor, that's all. Listen, reality is in this country, in America, you have to do a lot of grime. You gotta do a lot of collaboration. Depending on how you wanna do it, but most of the time, all those people who are billionaires and trillionaires are the ones who did the most foul -ish humanly possible to get what they're at right now in life. Listen, right now we're at over 180 days in the writer's strike and the actor's strike right now. And it could have ended this right now. This thing should have been handled already. $50 million for both unions. And now they're gonna get a loss of over $300 to $500 million because of this strike. And you have people like Drew Barrymore's punk ass. Well, she reneged on it though. She had to, because dude, she was getting the business with the WGA and the SGA. And it's separate, you know. Even... Bill Maher's bitch ass too, man, was... I didn't get the damn thing off the running. Was, oh, I don't need no writers, I'll be our show. Look, dude, your show sucks. The Seddie Swear Counter is in full effect. There you go, you have one. You can do like a ding sound from now on for my swears. I'm gonna keep it calm. I'm gonna keep it professional. Seddie the Sailor Man. I can't swish, come on. Listen, man, I'm just telling you, when Seddie get that spinach boy, man, we poppin' ice today. Oh, yeah. Little bird watch out. Now, but on some real issues, like dude, Bill Maher, the guy who said, I'm not a field n -word, I'm a house n -word, and who crapped on Stan Lee after he died and stuff, and says a bunch of other ridiculously retarded things, says he's gonna do a show. Stan Lee who? Marvel comic Stan Lee. Oh, Stan Lee, oh. That's what Bill Maher said. Yo, he be going extra heavy trying to relate to us blacks. You're a not house n -word. You're at the table, bro. You got the good chair. You got the good piece of chicken. He used to be down by the dam, but nowadays, man, it's horrible. He's just, you know, he's trying. What the legend Paul Mooney said, everybody wants to be black, so it's time to be black? Listen, you think Paul Mooney is trying to be black and competent? Hell no. I want to be in a gated community area. What's wrong with you? Like he says, everybody wants to be black. He listen to King Koon, so he know what that's about. Yeah, but Bill Maher is doing his show still, which I think it was crap with writers. It's going to be crap about writers. And then, you know, you're going to have to hire writers who are not non -union writers. We're going to be scabs. We're going to pretty much destroy their any chance of them getting actual work when the strike is done. If you get caught. Well, if you are what you say you are, then have no fear. Even if you're on YouTube and you want to get a chance of being in the industry, you can't do no reviews. No, no movie reviews, no TV show reviews, nothing. There's a strike. You doing that? You will be known and accounted for when you want to get your membership. And trust me, you don't want those problems. But my thing is, if there was already YouTubers like successful already doing movie reviews and being credible and stuff like that, that won't affect them. Is it already locked in like a partnership or whatever with certain movies? Then they could do it. As long as they get the permission from their respective union. OK. If they do something brand new, if we're coming out with The Exorcist coming out next week, they can't do no review for that at all. Oh, wow. Wah wah. Listen, I can't go into it because I want to become in that union because I want to be a voice actor. You want to sell out. I get it. So I can't speak on it at all. No, no, no. He's not selling out. No, he wants to. He wants to. No, he doesn't want to sell out. You want the Disney money. No, I want to buy in. He wants to buy in. Oh, yes. You want to buy in, you got to sell out, right? No, the license is fucking me, bro. I'm just saying. The license, the thing to get a SAG card, it's over $3 ,000 to get a SAG card. And you have to get that SAG card in order to get some work and residuals and all that stuff. That's just what it is. Listen, man, listen, Harvey Weinstein's in prison, bro. He can't get to you, my guy. He can't get to you, my guy. Listen, man, don't take that hotel meeting, bro. Am I Rose McGowan? Shoot it. It's either a Zoom call. I'm actually Judd. It's either a Zoom call or a posh Beverly Hills restaurant or a Permell Studios, wherever that super creep was out here making his rounds. But you don't got to worry about that no more. Filthy behavior. One of the girls was saying like, yeah, when I said no more hanky panky, you know. He felt a way. Yeah, you want that rolling letter to there, don't you? My guy, how could he feel a way? You've been imposing your will on these ladies for a long time. Speaking of entertainment, you had a concert this weekend, right? Yeah, yeah. I was, you know, I was like. This guy was really outside. I was like, I was like, I was like. What concert was this? I was like. Let me tell you. Go ahead, say it. I was like from the acting sheriff up north, back to back out here, you know. Yes, so for all the first time, longtime listeners, and you know, last time listening to how evidence goes, I had a couple of shows. This past Thursday, I went to an event that was sponsored by Spotify for up and coming artists. I saw three, three very, very talented artists. The main artist I went to see goes by Kamari. He's an artist that I discovered around COVID. He has a lot of like influences. He reminds me of like a Frank Ocean. He's really that, you know, artist type dude. And he put out this great, incredible album called A Brief Nirvana, which I advise everybody to check out. His name is Kamari, K -H -A -M -A -R -I. Highly recommend him. And I also saw these two other artists from the UK, St. Harrison and Elmin. That's my boy. And overall, it was a great experience, very, you know. It was at SOB, Sound of Brazil in New York City. Very intimate setting, great turnout, great energy.
A highlight from Marriage as Commitment and Priority
"Welcome to Gospel in Life. When it comes to marriage, we often use words like soulmate or the one. These words can reveal an underlying belief that to have a good marriage, you just have to find the perfect person. But the biblical vision for marriage is starkly different. It's a way for two imperfect people to help each other become who God intended them to be. Listen as Tim Keller explores the meaning of marriage. The title of the sermon tonight is Marriage 3. I figured this is the summertime. At the end of the summer, you see a lot of sequels. There's Child's Play 3, there's Terminator 2, there's Rocky 85, and there's Marriage 3. I figured you'd be in the swing of it. Please turn with me to Ephesians 5. Those of you who have come to the evening service know that this is part of a series that we started 18 years ago or so on the book of Ephesians. And we're moving through the book of Ephesians at the pace of a geriatric slug pretty much. It's very, very, very slowly through the book of Ephesians. And we've come to maybe the classic text, the longest, the most famous text in the entire Bible on the subject of marriage. So let me read to you again from Ephesians 5 verses 21 to 32, and then we will take it from there. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Why submit to your husbands as to the Lord? For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. Now, as the church submits to Christ, so wives should submit to their husbands in all things. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In this way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it just as Christ does the church, for we are members of his body. And for this reason, a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery, but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you must also love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. This is God's Word. There's a lot of stuff to say about this passage, but here's how we've been dividing it. Let me remind you of where we've been. Let me give you a quick recap of the headings. We're looking at marriage in this passage under five headings. We're looking at the power of marriage, the definition of marriage. You know what? It's six, isn't it? The power of marriage, the definition of marriage, the priority of marriage and the purpose of marriage, the structure of marriage and the mystery of marriage. We mentioned that last week. I won't tell you what all those are, but that's what we're doing. We're moving it through it. So far, we've only looked at the first two, and tonight I want to get to the third. And the first two are the power of marriage and the definition of marriage. Quick recap. Remember what the power of marriage was? The power of marriage is in verse 21. 21 is actually a bridge. For those of you who are here in May and June, when we were looking at the verses of chapter 5, verses 18 and following, or what it meant to be filled with the Spirit, verse 21 is a direct link from the passage being filled with the Spirit to the passage on what it means to be married. What is a good marriage? There's a link. The one assumes the other. You know what the link is? The link is cause and effect. The cause of a good marriage is being Spirit -filled. So verse 21, which is the end of the passage that we looked at, verse 21 is talking about the fact that when you're filled with the Spirit, there's a Spirit -created unselfishness, a willingness to submit to other people, a willingness to serve other people, not to be defensive, to have a servant heart. And that is the basis for any kind of healthy marriage. Now, we talked about that, but let me just, let me make a couple observations to make sure those of you who weren't here know where we're going, where we've been, and those who were here have it clearly in mind. There is a spirit of servanthood. There's a servant heart, which is the foundation for any kind of decent marriage. That's why verse 21 comes before everything else. Well, some people have asked me, what do you mean? What is the servant heart? What is that? It's kind of vague. All right, let me give you at least three critical aspects without which a marriage will not run. These three things, which are really just constituent parts of a servant heart, are like the oil in a car engine. Try to run an engine without oil. Just try it. Don't put any oil in there. No lubrication. What basically happens, of course, is that the friction, the tension will destroy the engine so quickly. It'll get so hot, it'll overheat so quickly. There's got to be something in there that in a sense acts as a buffer, because obviously friction is what an engine is all about, motion and movement. Something has got to absorb that. What absorbs it? What absorbs it is the servant heart. And let me give you three constituent parts to it. The ability to hear criticism without being crushed. That's a lack of self -defensiveness, see. Secondly, the ability to give criticism without being, without crushing, without crushing. Thirdly, the ability to forgive people without residual anger. In other words, to forgive people and really let it go. That's what I mean by a servant heart. The ability to take your mind off yourself when you're giving criticism, when you're receiving criticism, when you're forgiving. Where does that come from? As we said last week, well, we can't go back into all the spirit -filledness, but what it means to be spirit -filled means that the Spirit of God is illuminating your heart and making very real to you the work of Jesus Christ. And if you remember that from June and May, when Jesus' work for you becomes very real. The example that always comes to my mind is when I talked to that 16 -year -old girl years ago in my church and she didn't have any dates. Nobody was asking her out. And she says, yeah, I'm a Christian. I know I'm going to live forever in heaven. I know Jesus loves me and cares for me. I know he died for me. I know he gave himself for me. I know he lives in me. I know that I'm his child. I know that I have his ear. I know that he comforts me and will take care of me, but what good is all that if you don't have any dates? Now, she wasn't quite that eloquent, but you see, at that moment she was saying intellectually, yeah, I know what Jesus has done for me, but right now my heart is overwhelmed with the beauty of, with the beauty of the prospect of being a desirable woman. That's what she was saying. Whereas when I think about the fact that Jesus loves me, cares for me, that doesn't thrill me. Being spirit -filled means you're in touch with reality. Reality is who cares what a drippy 16 -year -old boy thinks about you when the king of the universe says, you are mine and I will stand with you and for you for all eternity. What kind of absolutely insane person could possibly put those two things up against one another and have the pimply faced 16 -year -old win? And yet, I mean, there's nobody in this room that hasn't been through that. What does it mean to be spirit -filled? It means that your head is on straight, you're thinking, you're in touch with reality and you realize what Jesus Christ has done for me is everything. The Bible says that there's actually two, that every human being is religious. It says this in Romans 1, that there's actually a system, there's a systemic structure, there's a systemic religious structure to everybody's life. Every one of us down deep inside has a way in which we think that if we behave, things that if we get to them, then we'll be fulfilled, then we'll have nirvana, then we'll be saved. Every one of us says that I will be able to accept myself if I get this. We've talked about this before. Every human being, Romans 1 says, has got something, some form of religion, something they worship, something they say if I get that, then I'll be all right. The gospel says not your performance, not success, not relationship, not love, none of those things will ever satisfy you. You can know who you are, you can be secure when you realize that Jesus Christ has died for you and you're resting in what he's done for you. When that happens, and when you see the work of Jesus Christ for you, when you're spirit -filled, that gives you the ability to submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. You see, when it says in verse 21, out of reverence for Christ, literally out of the fear of Christ, you can submit, you get this unselfishness because Christ is so real to you, you're continually in awe before the reality of him. So how can you receive criticism without being crushed in your marriage or anywhere? The way is because in your heart you're thinking this, well, Jesus is my priest, Jesus is my friend, Jesus is my king, Jesus is my brother, I can handle this. He loves me, he cares for me, he'll show me. And so you can take criticism without being destroyed. You've got a cradle of security for your moment of great vulnerability. Or how can you give criticism without crushing? Well, you think like this, you say, I was a sinner, I am a sinner, I should be cast off. So you're using the gospel on yourself. You say, I should be cast off, but Jesus, gentle, gentle Jesus has put up with me for so long and he continually shows me the truth and I continually turn my back on him, but bit by bit he's coaxed me and he's been patient with me and he's brought me along. How then could I be any harsher with this person than he has been with me? Now, somebody's out there saying, sure, sure. Yet your wife yells at you and you're sitting there thinking about Jesus Christ as your brother and your friend and your cradle of security is one of the greatest of vulnerability. Well, look, in the beginning, when you're trying to reorient your life, when you're seeking to live your life and have your relationships, living it out of the matrix of servanthood, out of the matrix of the gospel, you do have to talk to yourself like that. But I want you to realize that this is not a mindset that you can turn on this week right away. You better get started now because it takes time. I tried to refer to this in the sermon earlier, one of the earlier services. It goes like this, most of you realize, I guess, when I'm prepared, I quote from all sorts of people. When I'm prepared, I quote. Why? Because C .S. Lewis is somebody that I've read, I've read everything that he's ever written, over and over and over and over again, ever since I became a Christian. Now, some of you are like that. There's a couple of books that you just, you master an author. You know what it's like to do that. Another guy is George Whitfield, that I've just read his sermons and read his sermons and read his sermons. Now, what happens after a period of time is that you not only get to master the person's works, but you actually begin to understand how that guy's mind works. You know what he thinks, even though you've never read anything he said about the subject, you know what he would say, right? I mean, you meet a character and you say, I know what he would say about that. I know what George Whitfield would say about that in a sermon. Why? Because I've read thousands of his sermons, not thousands, but I've read his sermons thousands of times. What happens is you can get an author that really speaks to you and you just read the stuff and you read the stuff and after a while you've gone beyond just the words of the book or the sermons and you've come to penetrate to the way the guy's mind works. That's what happened in my case with a couple of these authors. And that's the reason why when I'm just speaking extemporaneously, when I'm just speaking out of my heart, he comes out. Why? He's in there. Now, that's an image. Most of you know how that works. A lot of you may have people like that in your life, authors, people that have just sunk down so deep that you know how they think, you know how to look at life through them and their ideas and thoughts are in there so deep they just come out spontaneously. Do you realize what would happen to you and what would happen to me if we started to relate to Jesus like that? If we were so saturated in his promises to us and his summonses to us and his encouragements to us and what he says about us in his word. If that had sunk down as deep as what I'm talking about to the place where not just the words but the very way his mind works and the very way he thinks about you becomes intrinsic, inherent, spontaneous, reflexive, instinctive to you. That's when you develop the servant heart. When somebody gives you criticism, of course you're not consciously thinking, Jesus is my brother, Jesus is my friend, he loves me. His opinion matters more than anything else. I don't have to be scared to receive this kind of criticism. This is not the end of my life. This isn't the end of the world. I know who I am in Christ. You don't think that consciously and yet you're thinking that because what it's doing is it's giving its cast to everything you do, everything. There's a stability I keep talking about. There's a poise there, a deep kind of cosmic spiritual poise, a sense like I don't have to be afraid of anything anymore emotionally. It's sunk down in there. It's part of you. You're thinking like he thinks. You look at yourself through his eyes. You look at the world through his eyes. It's only when you've taken the time through prayer, through Bible study, through coming to worship, through reflection, through meditation, through fellowship of other Christians and continually talking about these things together. As time goes on, it sinks and it sinks and it sinks until the gospel dwells in you richly and eventually, eventually that will become the power in all your relationships and the power for marriage. The ability to submit to one another, to really forgive, to give criticism without crushing, to take criticism without being crushed. Only possible if you believe in Jesus. But I don't just mean believe in Jesus, but that you're thinking about him and you're thinking through him and you're thinking of him continually, almost unconsciously. Otherwise, otherwise, otherwise, your heart, my heart is so hard and we are so prone to disbelieve anything Jesus says. Even though intellectually you do, you reject it at a deeper level. Then I'm afraid 16 year old pimply faced kids are continually beating Jesus out in our hearts. You understand what I mean. The power of marriage is an unselfishness which is created by the spirit. Secondly, we talked about the definition of marriage. The definition of marriage, and you know, since I spoke on that last week, I can give you a little concise thing. The essence of marriage is a covenant, a legal, legal commitment. Somebody afterwards said to me, but that still doesn't tell me, what is a legal, what makes a marriage a marriage? Is it a minister? Now, there's a difference of opinion on, between Catholics and Protestants on this and I'm absolutely, absolutely believing, believe that the Protestant approach is right. Catholic Church will say, only a priest can marry somebody. Isn't that right? Protestants will say, a priest can marry, a minister can marry, justice of the peace, marriage is marriage. It doesn't matter whether it's a captain on a ship, it doesn't matter whether it's a justice of the peace, marriage is marriage. Why? Because look in the Bible where marriage comes up. Marriage pops up. Originally it was given to Adam and Eve. It wasn't given to only Christians, it was given to human beings as human beings. And therefore, it's not a church ceremony that makes you married, though it can. It's not jumping over a broom that makes you married. It's not stamping on a glass that makes you married. It's not the rings that make you married. What is it that makes you married? What makes you married is this, a permanent and exclusive public legal commitment to share your lives together, all aspects of it. It's got to be permanent and it's got to be exclusive. Some people say, it's time to have renewable contract marriages. You get married for three years and you have an option for three more. You've heard that. Now, that might be interesting, but that's not a marriage. By the Christian definition, even a prenuptial agreement, to be honest with you, radically cuts at the root of the Christian definition of marriage. The Christian definition of marriage is a permanent and exclusive promise to share every part of your life with somebody else. It's got to be a public legal commitment, a permanent exclusive public legal commitment to share your life with somebody else, every part of your life. If you say, no, it's not permanent, it's for three years, that's not marriage. If you say, it's not every part of your life, just here and here and here, because prenuptial agreement, you don't get this or that. All those things get at the root of marriage. The Christian definition of marriage is permanent, it's exclusive, it's a legal public binding, permanent exclusive commitment to share every part of your life with somebody else. Now, how you do that, whether it's with a minister, whether it's with a captain, a justice of the peace, whether you jump over a broomstick, whether you exchange rings, it makes no difference. Therefore, even in this culture, which is deathly afraid of obligation and commitment and responsibility and discipline, it all likes to talk about self -realization and self -actualization and growth and potential, but it hates to talk about discipline and submission and obligation. Therefore, this is the place at which the Christian understanding of marriage has a head -on collision with the society. You should not give yourself to somebody unless you've got that kind of promise and unless you're willing to give them that kind of promise. See, if you're not willing to make a permanent and exclusive public legal commitment to share your entire life with somebody, then you don't really love them enough to really be married. And the Bible says you should not give yourself to that person until that person is willing to make that promise to you and you are willing to make that promise to that person. That's why I must tell you that a number of people question me about it because, see, the implications of what we said last week, the implications of this idea that marriage is a cleaving, that's in verse 32, it's that public commitment, and that essentially love is a commitment therefore. Well, somebody says, you've de -romanticized marriage in my eyes. So what does that mean? Well, what did I say last week? I said that therefore the essence of love is a commitment. Love is an action first. It's a commitment to invest yourself in another person and meet their needs. And it's a feeling second. One of the weird things about becoming a pastor is that when you become a pastor, for the first time in your life, you are bound and obligated to be friends with all sorts of people that you really wouldn't choose to be friends with. I don't know of anybody else who's obligated, you know, doctors, for example, have to treat people they wouldn't ordinarily like, but they don't have to like them. They don't have to be friends with them. I don't know of anybody else who basically suddenly gets a body of people and the job description is you have to be friends with a lot of people that you would not ordinarily choose to be friends with. Therefore, in a sense, pastors have a kind of unique experience to talk about. You would be surprised at how you don't spend time with. You don't invest yourself in them. You don't give yourself to them. You don't listen to their problems. You don't go to see them at 3 a .m. in the morning. Now, one of the things that I found interesting in my earliest days, you know, Kathy and I moved into a new situation. I got a job as a pastor. I had basically 100 to 150 people and I started to pastor them. And there's a good number of them or people that if I was just living as a private individual in that town, I would have chosen as friends. And there were a lot of people that would never have chosen as friends. Not so much I didn't like them because you don't have that much in common. You're not quite the same. You don't have the same interests. You don't have, there's no spark, you know. It doesn't matter if there's no spark. This person is a member of your church. You're the pastor in a small town. This person's got a problem, you're there. This person's in the hospital, you're there. This person's got to talk to you at 2 a .m. in the morning, you're there. This person's son runs away, you get in the car and go chase him. This man's this man wife has run out on him, you get in the car and go find her. And that's the way it is to be a pastor, especially in a small town, in a small church. You invest yourself. You give. You do the actions of love for people that you really have no particular affinity with. And then after a couple of years, a big surprise comes to Kathy. You know, our day off, which I took every couple of months, I take a day off. And on a day off she would say, what do you want to do? What do you just want to do socially? What do you just want to do for fun? And I would say, well, let's have, let's have John and Mary Doe over. And she would say, why? Why in the world would you want to have John and Mary Doe over? I mean, that's work, isn't it? The reason you see John and Mary Doe, I mean, everybody knows all the problems they have and how obnoxious they are and the difficulties they have and why when you don't have to be with John and Mary Doe, why in the world would you choose to be with John and Mary Doe? And I realized I'd come to like them. I was the only person in town that liked them. But I really did like them. Why? Is it just because, oh, obviously as a pastor, of course, you just have this natural ability to like people and love people because you're more holy, you're more godly. That's why you're a pastor. It's your job to be more spiritual. That's not true at all. It really happened. You know why? Because I'd been loving them, even when I didn't like them. And you see, you don't have to bother, whether you like somebody, that's not what a Christian worries about. What a Christian does, if you love people, eventually you come to like them. It works in reverse, too. Remember I told you the one thing I once read where it said at first the Nazis killed the Jews because they hated them, but then after a while they hated the Jews because they killed them. It works the other way around, you see. What happens is, in the beginning, you love somebody just because you have to. The more you love them, the more you love them. The more you give yourself, the more you make a decision to invest in them, the more you find your heart tied up to them. You know why? Because the Bible says where your treasure is, there will your heart be. Where your treasure is, there will your heart be. When you invest in somebody, you're putting your treasure, you're putting time, which is tremendously valuable. You're putting emotion, which is tremendously valuable. You invest and you invest in that person, and of course, you may still feel a hostility if that person absolutely tramples you and is very cruel and harsh. That's not usually what happens. Usually you find that people that aren't terribly lovely, if you love them, you will come to love them. Now, I'm using the word love in an equivocal way. The way the modern society thinks of love, you're thinking of a feeling, but that's not the way the Bible ever uses the word love. You love them and you come to like them. You invest in them and you find that they get more and more lovely to you. I'm trying to tell you this. You don't go ahead and get married to somebody who you don't like, but I can guarantee you this. Whoever you marry, you will fall out of like with. It is an absolute necessity. Not only that, you will start to fall out of like with that person in most cases before you marry them, in the courtship or in the engagement, and that's where most people say, I guess I shouldn't marry this person. I've fallen out of like with them. Well, friends, your emotions come and go, and if the essence of marriage is a covenant, a commitment, then you will find that in spite of the fact that you kind of love this person, you feel a lot for them, you might be attracted to them, you're great friends, the fact is your emotions will come and go, and at a certain point, a marriage will not work, or even a potential marriage will not work unless you make a decision to invest in that person, and when you find that your heart gets dry and you look at the person and you don't feel any particular like, you invest in them, you give to them, you love them, you are tender, you are cherishing, you listen, you serve, and what it does is it gets you through those dry times. Not only that, it begins over the years to eliminate the dry times. That's not the way most of us do it. When the dry times, when we fall out of like, when that happens, we start to say, I guess this isn't the one for me.

"OK, Chuckers, we're back. That's right. The Buddhists typically talk about nirvana as nirvana. In Hinduism, it's usually referred to as moksha. But they're basically talking about the same thing. It's the highest plane of existence, wherein you stop being reincarnated, you have worked off your karmic debt, and you reunite with the cosmos, with the universe. And in Hindu cosmology, they're talking about Krishna, which is the godhead, which is the source of all things. And Krishna is very frequently, or Krishna incarnates in three major deities. In all deities, all Hindu deities are extensions of Krishna, but the big three are Brahma, who's the creator, Vishnu, who's the sustainer, and Shiva, who's the destroyer. And when you die, when you achieve moksha, you go and get absorbed into Krishna again. Yeah, and the big difference that I think we found between Buddha nirvana and Hindu nirvana or Buddhist nirvana is that with Hindu, you're working your way up through this caste system. Eventually. You start out by, you have to be born through every type of organism that exists on the planet. You actually make it through, under Hindu cosmology, 8 ,400 ,000 different species of animals before you even get to humanity. And then once you become a human, you can go through countless lives in different castes over and over again. But those castes are hierarchical, and you, like you said, are working your way up. Yeah, that's called the varna, and you get that good karma, you perform by performing duties in that caste, and then basically, once you have, it's almost like a graduation in the next life if you've done well to the next caste up. Yeah, and there's actually, there's a lot of debate right now, because Gandhi was famously thrown out of his caste, the Vaishya, I believe. It's the merchant class. And he was thrown out of it because he championed for the rights of the lowest class, the sudra, who were basically responsible for handling, picking up dead animals and taking care of the rest of the community's waste, and basically were just generally mistreated by the higher castes. And so there's this question now in modern Hinduism, like, does the caste system still fit? Is it still appropriate? But the thing is, is if it's not a reflection of, say, God's punishment, but something as physical as, like, the second law of thermodynamics, or motion, sorry, that it's just a reaction to some other action you took in a past life, who are humans to say that the caste system is no longer appropriate? It's just part of the universe. But then, if it turns out it's a human construct, well, then it gets kind of ticklish, right? Because it undermines this Hindu cosmology. So it's a weird place that modern Hinduism is in right now, talking about whether or not to do away with the caste system. Interesting. What do you think? I think that's up to Hindus. Good answer. Thanks. So I would imagine then Gandhi then, in his next life, was definitely in that next caste up, huh? I would guess if he didn't just achieve moksha right then and there. Yeah. He was a pretty good guy. You're Gandhi. You can skip a few levels. Exactly. Skip a few grades. Yeah, and that's the thing. Like, the highest class is the Brahmin class in Hinduism, and they're the priestly class. They're like the Hindu or the Buddhist monks who go off and try to achieve nirvana. Their station in life is to achieve moksha. They've worked off their karmic debt to a tremendous degree, and their focus in life is to get rid of the rest of their karmic life so they are not born again, right? Right. The one below that is Kshatriya, and that's the ruling warrior class. That's the one that Siddhartha was born into, apparently. Gotcha. When he was like, this is wrong. Anybody should be able to achieve enlightenment. Yeah, and that was one of the main reasons that Buddhism was born, right? Was that he rejected that caste system. The main reason, yes. And so, but within this, if you're a Kshatriya, you're working on your karmic debt because as far as you're concerned, if you can work off enough of it, you will be born the next life into the Brahmin class, and then you can work really hard and get out of that and end up achieving enlightenment. So there is a hierarchical progression, and as you were saying, one of the main things that you're tasked with as a Hindu is dharma, which is responsibility to your caste, right? Like acting like a member of your caste rather than acting out like Gandhi. I love it. You got anything else? Yeah, there's actually four tenets, just like the eight, what was it, the eight noble... The noble eightfold path? Right. There's like four in Hinduism. One of them is dharma, responsibility to basically your caste, society's rules, but more importantly, like Krishna's rules, and also like having a responsibility and a duty to your own calling in life and just like living like that. Artha is pursuing wealth because in Hinduism, there's this idea that's kind of like in Buddhism where you don't need to be super rich, but you also shouldn't be poor either. And one of the things is, just like with Buddhism and Hinduism, you're trying to escape earthly desires and wants. One way to do that is to have the money to not have to worry about where your food's going to come from. It frees you up for a lot of time to contemplate and get toward enlightenment, right? That's artha. Kama is more fulfilling desires, frequently like sexual desires, that kind of stuff. But there's all sorts of like taboo and constraint and all that kind of stuff. It's not like a free -for -all in Hinduism as far as sex goes, right? And then lastly, there's moksha. Once you have moved past your earthly desires, you become free from delusion and realize that there is no earthly self. There's just your connection to Krishna, and then you can become enlightened. Which is also called moksha, correct? Yes. Nice. Pretty interesting stuff, huh? Yeah. So that's nirvana. Not the band. Not the band. Man, I hope we pointed that out at the beginning of this or else everybody's really confused right now. Oh, we'll probably call it something like nirvana, not the band. There you go. If you want to know more about nirvana, not the band, you can type that word into the search bar at houseofworks .com. Since I said search bar, it's time for listener mail. And if you want to know more about nirvana, the band, watch the great documentary, Montage of Heck. It's not called nirvana, the band? Nope. Montage of Heck. Very well done. Is it? Oh, it's great. Depressing.

"Difference, though. Not omniscient and omniscient, there's a pretty big difference between those two things. That's right. So when the Buddha came back from his, well, once he achieved his enlightened state, he started trying to tell people, you can be like this too, and here's how you do it. He said that there are, it's very simple, there are just four noble truths, it's all you need to know until you realize that the fourth noble truth mentions an eightfold path, and suddenly it's exponentially more involved. But it's still fairly simple stuff. Yeah. He taught this for the last 45 years of his life. Number one is that life is suffering, and I think that he was clued into that from his window that day. Yeah. It was the suffering that really made him go like, man, this is life? That old guy? That dead body? If this is life, who needs enemies? Oh, good point. Number two, suffering is caused by ignorance of the true nature of the universe, so ignorance is not bliss, ignorance is no good. No, and basically the true nature of the universe is that we are made unhappy by wanting, by craving things, and that we can free ourselves from those things by overcoming them. That's right. That's number three, you can end that suffering. And then number four is if you attach yourselves and follow the four, I'm sorry, the noble eightfold path, not the four, then you're all set, you can overcome all that junk. It's like, just remember these four things, and then these extra eight things. So the eightfold path, the noble eightfold path, are the ideals that guide you along the way, and they're broken down into three divisions. They're sammas. The divisions are sammas? No, the individual paths are called sammas. Oh, gotcha. Well, the first two are under the division of wisdom, right views and right intention. And it's free, sammas are frequently translated into right here in the West in English, and it doesn't, this article I read by this one guy said, like, that doesn't mean that the opposite of that is wrong. It's more like right in this sense means complete, perfect, whole. So the opposite of that would be incomplete, imperfect, not whole. That makes sense. Rather than wrong. Right, I get it. The second division is ethical conduct, and under there you have complete or right speech, right action, and right livelihood. Right, so working for Goldman Sachs or clubbing baby seals, you're gonna have trouble achieving nirvana in those positions. I would say so. You're probably not seeking nirvana either. Right. You know? Yeah. So you're fine. What about podcasters? Podcasters are totally in there. We're somewhere between clubbing baby seals and Goldman Sachs. Then finally, concentration is the last division, and that is right effort, right -mindedness, and right contemplation. Yeah, and the right -mindedness is being mindful, being aware. Right effort is like you're directing your effort toward these good things, you're not being slack in your path to enlightenment. And then the last one, right contemplation, is kind of difficult to understand. At the very least, it's difficult to explain, I found, in researching, but it's basically focusing your entire self on this, on the eightfold path and the four noble truths. You're really directing all of your thought and energy into that. Yeah, and that's what I got from Grundy when I talked to her last time we were up there at the Bell House. It was just very soothing. She's just like, man, it's just practice. It's a cycle. You're just continually trying to do the right thing. And that's like the simplest breakdown. But if something bad happens and you don't, you start over and you try harder, which sounds like really great life principles. So that's Buddhist thought as far as achieving nirvana goes. And Hinduism is actually very closely related, but there are some major distinctions. And we will talk all about that right after this. Give them a gift that can grow with them.

Put an ad in the middle of a Buddhism lesson. Well, we take all comers here, my friend. So if you achieve nirvana, what you're doing is you are breaking that cycle. So if you listen to our reincarnation podcast, Samsara is that cycle of reincarnation that you can be caught in or stuck in, I guess. And this is where karma, and again, we have a great episode on karma, karma comes into play because what you're doing is you're rewarded on your past actions in your current life and earlier lives. Does that make sense? No, it makes sense, yeah, sure. And I love that this article says it's important to note that the law of karma isn't due to God's judgment over a person's behavior, and it's closer to Newton's law of motion. That makes more sense. Right, for every action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. So when you step on a snail, you're just like, man, didn't mean to do that, it's gonna come back and bite me later on in another life, and you build up this karma or whatever. But when you reach nirvana, you stop accruing bad karma. That's right, you transcend it. Yeah, and when you transcend it, then all of a sudden you can spend the rest of your life working off that karmic debt that you have already accrued, because that doesn't just go away. It's like paying down a credit card. Exactly, but it's like when you achieve nirvana, the credit card's cut up, so you're not adding to your account any longer. But you still have some money that you owe, and you're paying that off in this life or conceivably other lives following. But at some point, your golden ticket has been granted. You have achieved nirvana. That's right, and when that happens, you have escaped that samsara, and you have achieved padi nirvana, and that is the final stage that you find in the afterlife. Right. And in the case of Siddhartha, he was 80 years old when he passed, and he died in a state of meditation, basically saying to his people around him, it's all good, man. This is the goal. It was like a great way to pass. You know? Yeah. Like, we should all pass that way. Sure. Telling everybody it's all good? Yeah, pretty much, like Wooderson style. So he's going, all right, all right, all right. Yeah, those were his last words, if I'm not mistaken. So when one achieves nirvana, and you escape the cycle of samsara, you eventually, when you die and you work off your karmic debt and you're no longer reincarnated, you become, you basically travel to another dimension, another realm, just something different that basically exists outside of space -time, as modern Buddhists would say, and you are kind of one with the universe. You just become a selfless part of the universe. That sounds beautiful to me. Sure. That's nice. So Pada Nirvana Day, or just Nirvana Day, is celebrated on February 15th in East Asia. Celebrations vary. Evidently, I looked it up. Apparently, some people just meditate, some people are just reflective. A lot of times in monasteries, food is prepared and shared, but that is February 15th. Okay. Nirvana Day. Yeah. So, Chuck, if you become a Buddhist monk and you achieve nirvana, and let's say you're not a Buddhist monk. Okay. And you, well, no, let's say you are. Okay. So you're a Buddhist monk. Man, I keep putting on these clothes and taking them off. You achieve nirvana. You become a Buddha, right? Again, not the Buddha, but a Buddha, which means an enlightened one, right? Yes. And if you say, I have got some time and money and I'm going to hire you, a Buddha, to lead me to nirvana, you're almost like a junior Buddha. There's a different word for him. They're called arhats. Yeah. Arhit is what I found. Arhit? Yeah. Okay. That's right. That's when you have a Buddha guide to guide you, and you're enlightened, you're just not omniscient. Yeah. Not bad, though.

"All right. Here we are. It's cold. It's lovely. You know, it's funny. I didn't take it as cold. I thought we would be going back to like maybe spring, but yeah, it's really cold here right now. Yeah. It's a good thing you're wearing that ox hide. Yeah. You know? Lined with Sherpa. So I see Siddhartha over there, and he is a rich dude, and he is a very sheltered dude. And despite all these riches and this lifestyle, he's very pampered. I can see it in his eyes. He is dissatisfied. He is dissatisfied. He was born into a ruling class, very powerful, like you said, rich family. And he's part of the idle rich, but he's part of the thinking idle rich. So he started to question his place in life, which is basically what you said, right? Yeah. He starts to mull this over, and like maybe there's more. It's a very long story, and we could spend hours talking about this, but... I'm sure people do. I've seen that, yeah, because like you can't do it part time, like I said. But I'm looking at him, and basically I can tell that his disillusionment has reached its apex, and it is culminated by him looking out the window one day, and he sees three things from his little palace window. He sees a decrepit old man. He sees a diseased man. And then he sees a corpse. And he's done. So it's like the progression? I guess so. And he's like, you know what, I'm done with this life. Can't take it anymore, even though I have my arranged wife, my cousin, whom I married, was forced to marry. I have a beautiful son, whom I love. I'm going to leave them. I'm gonna leave all my possessions, and I'm going to go on a quest, a vision quest, if you will, to understand the true nature of life. And here I go. And back we are to the present day, sir. You can hang your ox hide and that sherpa on the coat rack. Well, there's more to the story. Do we have to go back? Yeah, we gotta go back. I gotta get on shore pants. Put your pants back on. All right. So, Chuck, here we are back again. And Siddhartha, he's gone from a very rich, powerful family. He's decided to go on this vision quest. He thinks, well, I mean, if I was very dissatisfied, and I think it's kind of wrong to be as grossly rich as I was the family I was born into, I'll just go the exact opposite route and I'll become a hermit. A poverty completely -stricken hermit who has not even a pot to pee in. Not even that, right? And he figures out that as he's starving to death, that it's not leading to any kind of enlightenment. He's actually growing increasingly uncomfortable. It's getting harder and harder for him to pay attention to enlightenment because, say, he's hungry and hungrier. Sure. And he realizes, wait a minute, maybe this isn't the right way to go. Maybe polar extremes are a little too extreme. Yeah, what if I die without achieving my goal? That would just have been a wasted life. Yeah, I would have been poverty -stricken and great, but that doesn't lead to enlightenment, clearly. So, here comes a stranger who's offering me a meal. I'm gonna take it. I'm gonna be poverty -stricken no longer. And maybe I don't need to be rich, but I also don't need to be poverty -stricken. I need to take this middle road to enlightenment. So I'm gonna kill that stranger, take all the food. No? With a pigeon hammer? Oh, wait. That's not the middle road. That's far from the middle road. That's kind of extreme as well. I kid. So he takes a meal from a stranger, he figures out, I think, finally that, like, oh, okay, this is the way to do it, goes and sits under a tree and achieve nirvana. He achieved omniscience. Yeah, there were three stages of that. He saw his past lives, all of them. He saw the past lives of all others, and he's like, I'm really starting to catch on to things here. Things are revealing themselves. And finally, he identified the four noble truths, which we'll talk about in a bit. But those were the three stages under the tree. And in the end of it, he said, you know what, I gained a perfect understanding of the laws governing the cycle of birth and death. It's nirvana. Boom. It's nirvana. And nirvana, we should probably say, once he achieved nirvana. He didn't say it's nirvana. No, he couldn't say much, actually. One of the things that I came across in research time and time again is that he very famously couldn't put it into words. A description of what he experienced in this new state of enlightenment that he was vibing in. It's like Cthulhu. Kind of. It was the unnameable, you know? But trusted everybody him anyway. They said, this guy knows where it's at. We're going to start following his teachings. Yeah. In Sanskrit, nirvana means to extinguish. So in this case, they're talking about extinguishing suffering and hatred and ignorance. No good. So we'll talk about the Buddha's path to enlightenment and his teachings that came out of this achievement of nirvana right after this.

"Yes, I like that. I like that, Josh. But I did include a Nirvana reference in there when I said, here we are now. Oh, did not catch that. I noticed. Very nice. Very subtle. I slid that one in there, yeah. Yeah. How are you doing? Are you feeling centered? Uh, no, I'm all wackadoo. Your chakras are all over the place? My chakras are all over the place. So much so that I couldn't think of anything, so all I did was repeat you. Well, you know, man, I have to say, while we were researching this, I was like, this is some beautiful stuff. It's very appealing. Yeah, actually, it's neat stuff. Like I became calm in researching this, in researching Nirvana. Yeah, that's a good thing. I think you can tie this in. We have a couple of related episodes, and we might as well just call this the Enlightenment Suite. How about that? Sure. I'd like that. Karma from July 2011, and Reincarnation from July 2010. And Burning Man? Yeah, the angriest people on the earth. Yeah, for real. Yeah, and you know, our buddy in New York, Rachel Grundy, is a Buddhist. Oh, yeah? Yeah, and I've talked to her about it some, because I was like, you know, Grundy, I've meditated some, and it really appeals to me. And like a true Buddha, she's like, it's great, man, here, I'll send you some stuff. No presh. You know? I'll send you some pamphlets. Yeah, that's basically what she did. She wasn't like, you know, you should look at this. You know, it's a little less overbearing than other religions I've found. I gotcha. You know what I mean? Now, Rachel Grundy does the literary pub crawl, right? Does she still do that? I don't know if she still does that. She used to. But we can plug her band, Coyote Love. How about that? There you go. And she just adopted a dog, so congratulations. Congratulations to everybody. That's the Buddhist way. That is. So nirvana, I thought, was the perfect way to cap off karma and reincarnation as the third part. And maybe we should do meditation. Maybe we should make it a four -parter. Yeah, that could probably be interesting. I'm sure there's a lot of studies about the physiological effects of it and all that. Yeah, let's do it. OK. All right. It's agreed upon then. And then the, what'd you call it, the what suite? The enlightenment suite. The enlightenment suite. Not to be confused with the transcendentalists. Or the enlightenment episode. Right. Man. Which doesn't factor into this at all. No. OK. So, Chuck, we're talking nirvana. You have like a conception of it. I have a conception of it. But in researching one of the things, and I also knew that Buddhists and Hindus share a lot of cosmology. Oh, I thought you were going to say they hate each other. No, I don't get that impression. No, of course not. But they are, Buddhism is an offshoot of Hinduism. Yeah, it's a spinoff. It's the aftermash. It is. Of religions. It's the Joni loves Chachi of religions. That's right. What else? Maude? What was that an offshoot of? Mary Tyler Moore. Mary Tyler Moore, right. It's the Jeffersons? Yeah. From Archie Bunker? Yep. Or All in the Family? All in the Family? Absolutely. I could do this for at least 30 straight minutes. Yeah, we should do an episode on spinoffs. Where we just say spinoff names? Yeah, and just hold thumbs up or down, but we don't say.

I did not realize that, I guess is what I'm saying. I knew that they were related. I didn't realize that it was like a direct offshoot, where basically the Buddha, whose original was name Siddhartha Gautama. Did you know that? Actually, Siddhartha - Okay, so the H is silent. Gautama. Nice. Yes, I actually looked at pronunciations or listened to them for this episode for once. I'm proud of you. I'm also a little ashamed because you did that and I didn't. That was all for Grundy. I was going with the original status quo, which is just mangling words of foreign origin. Well, I'm trying to mix things up here 15 years in. And scientific words too, not just foreign ones. Right. So, you were talking about Siddhartha Gautama. Right. He was born as a Hindu, a Hindu family. Sure. And decided like, I'm not too hip on Hindu. I think there's other ways to go. And there's Buddhism. That's the quick version. Yada, yada, yada. There's Buddhism. Yeah, this was 5th century B .C. in Asia, of course. And like you said, he would later become the Buddha, which is not to be confused with Buddha. A Buddha. Exactly. Which, you want to be a Buddha? Go do it, Chuck. You can do it. Well... You couldn't be the Buddha. Right. Because that's Siddhartha's. Right? Yeah. But you could be a Buddha. I could be. A layman's version, I believe, right? Okay. Because like only monks generally achieve the state of a Buddha. So in researching this, if you wanted to, you could be like, sayonara life, I'm going to become a Buddhist monk and conceivably achieve nirvana. Yes. In this lifetime. You could. Sure. Because you're a human being. You're incarnated as a human being into this moral coil. And if you wanted to, you could go do it. But in researching this, yes, apparently it's typically left to the Buddhist monks, because they're the ones who are like... Who have the time? Sayonara life. Yeah, because you got to drop out, sort of. In a lot of ways. Not entirely. I mean, Buddhist monks still filter amongst the masses and all that. Sure. But for the most part, they're focusing a lot more on achieving nirvana than the average day -to -day person does. Even like a day -to -day Buddhist or something. Yeah, it's not a part -time job. You're not sitting around on Netflix like, should I watch Orange is the New Black or should I meditate for eight hours? Right. Can I do both? You can, by the way. That's called zoning out. So let's talk a little bit more about Siddhartha's journey. This is 563 BC in modern -day Nepal, or what would be modern -day Nepal. Does the Wayback Machine go there? Yeah, you want to go? Let's go. All right. Sounds like a lovely time.

"No, what you'll find is within an enterprise that you get certain users who prefer to use teams in certain times they'll use zoom. And so whilst you think that every single user on a unified communications and collaboration is going to end up with a single app, you'll often find that depending based on the workflow, they might have two or three apps, even within that one enterprise that depending on the task of that knowledge worker works better for the circumstances they're in. And so we've evolved our thinking to really want to be that integration point to really be the guys that blew it all together. That allow our customers to be successful, whether it's with collaboration tools, whether it's with, as I say, that multi vendor estate. And so as we look forward, we see more diversity not less. The world of the end to end single technologist provided by one vendor has been talked about for many years, but I can't think of times when I've seen it happen and also therefore integration is more and more important and the more skill sets we have around that, the stronger place we perceive we're going to be. So that's what this journey is about. So it sounds like that's in fact your strategy that your strategy is to be the integration point instead of being the master platform. The one app everyone's using. I almost think that that's some sort of Nirvana that actually doesn't exist. Bigger companies than mitre with bigger budgets than might have tried to build one size fits all. Super Uber app, as I say, the COVID pandemic didn't offer Microsoft Teams and because everybody had to work from home very quickly and therefore using teams became standard play. And they've got 350 million desktops around the world, so it's pretty obvious that they'd have access to that number of users potentially. And zoom obviously exploded as well in the pandemic and we just have to work out now people are in a post

The Difference Between Buddhism and Christianity
"Difference between Buddhism and Christianity, right? So Buddhism believes that the highest level of Buddhism you don't talk. I've been to the bed right into the monasteries and they have these incredible debates where they're looking at each other, and they will clap with their hands, at each other, and yet they're not actually speaking. In Christianity. The two creation stories, God created heavens the earth and the beginning was the word the word was God the word was with God, right? Is logos, which is the word for speech. God spoken to exist. We are the speaking beans. At the highest levels of existence and earthly existence, we are being at a reasoning, speaking and communicating. And the highest level of existence in Buddhism, you shut up. It's a big difference. You turn yourself over to what exactly, you know? Yeah. Right. But also you're not obviously, you're not winning people over. You're not communicating. You're not reasoning. It's very sheltered, it's very, it's like retreating. I think there's a place for that. I think resting is obviously important, but the highest level of Buddhist philosophy is that you then assent to the highest level of Nirvana, right? Right. Through that, where we believe the total opposite and that's how you're breaking the cycle and you believe Jesus came to us. We believe Nirvana, whatever heaven, which we believe is a real place, has a nonstop ticket where Jesus said here you go, I paid the whole price for you. You don't have to go sit down and shut up and go to some hill and clap at each other and wear an orange robe. No offense anyone that might do that that listen to our show, you might be a nice person, whatever. The point is that it's totally different. Here's a ticket, free admission, go free, as it says in Johnny 38, the truth will set you free.

This is the story we've been following on Moscow courses he violated the terms of his probation while recovering from nerve agent poisoning in Germany. Involved. He says the proceedings are a show trial to scare his followers into submission. He's rejected his original conviction, which was on embezzlement charges as a fraud. In a statement from our Secretary of state, Antony Blinken, he says the United States is deeply concerned by this move against Swift punishment for the Russian opposition leader Nirvana and the biting
Navalny defiant as Russian court rejects his bid for freedom
"Ruled against freeing the lead opposition figure Alexei Navalny, rejecting his appeal against a 30 day detention imposed when he returned from Germany. Mr. Navalny's supporters have been calling for further protests this Sunday. Several Rainsford is in Moscow. The judge took just a few minutes to decide Aleksei Nirvana's fades, ruling that the opposition politician will remain behind bars. Mr. Navalny appeared in court via video link and spoke passionately denouncing his treatment, including a previous court hearing held in a police station as illegal, he said it was all meant to scare him and shut him up. You have the power for now, who declared, But that won't be eternal. The ruling itself was no surprise since Saturday's mass protests across Russia, calling for his release. Some key allies of Mr Navalny have been detained and many more have had their homes and offices searched by police.
Poisoned Russian Opposition Leader Alexey Navalny Says He Will Return To Russia Despite Jail Threats
"We begin today in Russia, where the opposition leader Alexei Navalny is facing a possible lengthy prison sentence a day after his arrest stand detention upon returning from Germany. He was being treated there for a novel Choc nerve agent attack in Russia, which Mr Navalny with a good deal of evidence has blamed on the Russian state. Mr Navalny was wished away from the airport where the plane landed last night, not the airport, where it was scheduled to land and where a large crowd of his supporters have gathered. Police station A court convened there today has agreed to a police request to extend his detention prior to a trial, which might rule he served a suspended prison sentence. 3.5 years handed down in 2017. His arrest has been widely condemned by Western governments but defended by Russia. Speaking ahead of a hearing on the hearing at the police station. In a clip posted on social media, Mr Navalny accused President Putin of showing complete contempt for the law by detaining him. Which uses said anything consumers to the press with Violet. See, I don't understand why the hearing is being held at a police station. Why wasn't anyone informed? Why were there No. Summers are seeing a lot of mockery of justice. But the old man in the bunker is probably so afraid that they've obviously tourney up and bend the criminal procedure code. This is impossible. What's going on? Here is lawlessness off the highest grade the words off election Avandia and a short while ago I spoke to Vitaly Millen off from Mr Putin's United Russia party who's been a member of the Russian parliament since 2016. Why is the Russian government seem so nervous about election of Army? I suppose that it's more like impression created by Nirvana himself. Of course, I assumed that Mr Navalny represents himself as the main leader of the Russian off positions, which is not true, because a number of his supporters is not the tremendous it's quite weak. Of course, he's not dangerous for the Russian state. Told because he wore he was able to participate in different type of elections, even in the mayor elections in Moscow, So I think that he is not someone that board us Russian authorities. One of the same time the Russian authorities describe Mr Navalny as in a relevant blogger, and then you whisk him off a plane which didn't land where it was meant to. You take him off to a police station. On So the trial as finished a couple of years ago. It's for reserve. Remember, it was assumed that he should stay in a special conditions. He cannot believe country for a long time. And he should visit occasionally. Special officer like everywhere in the world. He decided not to do this. Sorry. Hang on a minute, Mr Milner if he didn't decide not to observe his parole conditions, he was poisoned. With a deadly nerve agent. He then had to be flown out of the country where he's been suffering from a coma and trying to recover from that poisoning. This was not a choice on his part, as far as I remember Russian side God, no witness from the West. So with the same way we can tell that you've been captured by Spiderman, no evidence and no results. No tests from the laboratories in the present to Russian state. Saying that he had been poisoned by this Western world known poison nor the chuck. So he stayed as a guest off. I'm gonna model for quite a long period of time, and he had been recovered. You know, in a week after he's being transported from Russia recovered, recovered from what? Because you you say he wasn't but wasn't poisoned off course. I know a lot of diseases and lots of education's want personal individual needs to be recovered, he declared himself. Is an individual being poisoned, Injured assassinated? I I don't know what and he felt himself quite good already within a few days, so why he ignored his abilities to show up in the police office? I don't know. So that's been universal neg, universal condemnation of his arrest Western countries, the European Union, the United States, they are clearly all these countries extremely troubled. What has happened to Mr Navalny onboard. Usha doesn't care what the rest of the world thinks. That is. That's right, isn't it? Western countries? They do not care about the position of Russian side concerning those who have bean captured, increasing or held in prison in the United States, For example, European Union imprisoned lots of people from parts of Spain that called themselves Catalans know and you've got even Russian people in America being I should like, make their boot already for more than 10 years in prison without any real evidence of his being guilty, So it's first. I remember. We do not push American or British officials to change their mind because we respect sovereignity of different countries.

The hotel bar drinks debt with them if the some of their fans needed to place the crash the crash on the floor their hotel rooms and so that was a very different ethos and kind of the rockstar culture. Where you know you have bodyguards protecting you from the fans and just picking out. You know a few like pretty young girls to send up to your hotel. Mean it was. They were they were morning. Merced they saw themselves as one with the fans rather than above them and yet they still ultimately sort of collapsed under the pressure of the audience. You know by the time.

A Really Tall Tower: Babel
"Today we're looking at genesis chapter eleven and this is how it reads. I'm just if i could just re-genesis eleven versus one through nine. It's short enough. Yeah i think that'd be great yeah. Jt why don't you. Why don't you read it these bible in front of you. Boom okay genesis. Eleven one thousand nine do it okay. Moses writes under the holy spirit now the whole earth had one language and the same words and as people migrated from the east they found a plain in the land of shinar settled there and they said to one another come let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly and they had brick for stone and vitamin for mortar. Then they said come. Let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens and let's make a name for ourselves lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth and the lord came down to see the city and the tower which the children of man had built and the lord said behold they are one people and they have all one language and this is only the beginning of what they will do and nothing they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come let us go down. And there in confused their language so that they may not understand one another speech so the lord dispersed them from there over the face of the earth and they left off the building of the city. Therefore it's name was called babble because the lord confused the language of the earth and the lord dispersed them over all the face of the earth fascinating. What an interesting story. Now lewis opened up with this. Is this like the post-flood nirvana period like this. The post-flood utopia period because when it opens up. I guess we read the story of the tower of babel kind of back to front meaning. We kind of know where it's going but if you just read the first couple of lines of this now the whole earth had one language in the same words there they've migrated. They've settled there. They said to one another come. Let us build a city Like let let's build something. Okay if i could just pause in my mind if you just paused right there it feels like oh wow. They're doing what god told them to do after the flood there. It's one people They're living together and they're building. Isn't this a part of the cultural mandate cultivate and subdued there building a civilization. So like it seems for a moment like everything is going. According to plan right except that the language is telling us and they never yeah. Language come let us is is highly significant elsewhere. You'll see it In the book of exodus when Pharaoh says come. Let us build store cities and he. It utilizes the israelites slave labor to do so And so what we see in this building project and it's pretty clear that their motive for building is not to bring honor and glory to god. It is to ascend to the heavens and be like god that is to Make much of themselves. Not only that but cities are places that actually keep people in one spot and so part of what is confusing about the way. The narrative is written us. 'cause we're we're not necessarily paying attention to the typical rhythms. That's the original audience would have is that because we just had the of nations We're thinking oh okay. Everybody's all spread out and speaking different languages but the table of nations. This is not a chronological retelling. The table of nations is talking about how things look after the story of babble so it's important to see that. The fruitfulness medication and spreading out that is basically as we'll see Forced upon the human race at that. Point is that's recorded at the table of nations actually result of the story that we're reading. Yeah that i think that makes a lot of sense. I think one of the things that i i'm asking this question and i'm glad you brought that language because that's where i was hoping we would go with but i do feel like sometimes when i heard the story of the tower of babel tot and i don't know if this was just like the circles i in but i heard about it as oh they're doing something that the the the idea of city building Idea of structure building was anti-theft. What they should have been doing which living off the land and the garden. And i heard this is kind of like anti city hall cried for the anti progress that's the coal and eaten is the cultivate subdue and is the transform the earth into like this garden city so the act of building the act of development the active civic society. The active structure building isn't bad. It's not immoral but the reason they want to do it is
Aleksei Navalny Out of a Coma and Responsive, German Doctors Say

The German hospital treating him said, Monday Navan any of high profile critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin was flown to Germany last month after falling ill on August twentieth on a domestic flight in Russia.

Nirvana had been in an induced coma and the Berlin hospital since he was flown to Germany on August twenty seconds for treatment news of his gradual recovery came as German Chancellor Angela Merkel's office indicated that she might be willing to rethink the fate of a controversial German Russian gas pipeline project a sign of Berlin growing frustration over Moscow's stonewalling about the case.

Heaven and Hell
"The Buddhist said. The Double Prada. I won twenty six. Some enter the womb. Evildoers go to hell the good good heaven. Those free from worldly desires attained, Nirvana? Now. It's not hard to understand the attaining. Nirvana. But what's the stuff about going to hell and going to heaven? That doesn't seem very Buddhist. And yet we find it in the Buddhist scriptures. This is because I think that. The. Proclamation of Buddhism within the West has been sterilized of anything smacking of religion. So that Buddhism doesn't seem religious. But Buddhism is a religion. Is a religion that tells you how to attain the best destination the best life. So it tells you how to live life now. So that, you have peace of mind. It tells you how to attain Heaven after You die and it tells you how to get out of the cycle of rebirth, which is called some Sarah in Buddhism through attaining Nirvana. So. Tells you these things. But we really here mainly in the West about the meditation and about finding peace and things of this nature. But this isn't the complete story of Buddhism see you get a skewed view of Buddhism. So, lately, I've been writing for PATHOS PATHOS DOT COM. And Have My. I. Have a column there called the Buddhist said. And every week I do two articles where I explore the Buddhist teachings from the Pali Canon the earliest scriptures of Buddhism. And one of the things that. I'm trying to help people. Understand. Is that Buddhism is a full religion. It's not just find inner peace. It's about avoiding hell it's about attaining heaven and ultimately attaining Nirvana. So. One of the things I explained in my articles is the difference between the conditioned reality and the unconditional reality. So we live in a conditioned reality. And that conditioned reality has five basic destinations. You have the hell realms you have the ghost realm, you have the animal realm, the human realm, and the heavenly. Realm. And those are the five destinations that you can go to in this conditioned reality. Now. If you attain Nirvana which is complete liberation, then you leave this conditioned realm and go into. What can only be said to be the UN conditioned. You can't call it. A realm realm is conditioned. So I, call it an unconditional reality but that is still saying maybe too much about it. We don't know. We only know what the on conditioned is it's unconditional born on made on created on fabricated. And it's with that understanding then you begin to look at the Buddhist scriptures used. Yes Buddha tells how to get out of the cycle of rebirth. But he also tells you well, you're here. And if you don't attain Nirvana, the best thing to do is to practice the Dharma. And the Dharma has three basic printings if you will you have the ethical training. The. Mindfulness Meditation Training and the wisdom. Training this is the insight into the true nature of reality. So the ethical will give you a good rebirth. What you want is you want to be reborn as a human because the divine places, the heavenly places to pleasurable for you to meditate and the hell places to painful and of course, by Hell I mean they're temporary. So they're more like purgatory 's all these destinations are temporary. Nothing is permanent in the conditioned room. The only thing permanent is the uncommissioned. So when she realized that what you do here, effects where you're going after your life. Then the Buddha says ethical standards is what you do to make sure you have a good rebirth. That seems odd to many people who think of Buddhism has just a meditation practice. But this is what the Buddha taught. He taught a way of escape from the conditioned reality, but he also taught within this conditioned reality how to get the best rebirth so that you can practice so that you can attain Nirvana.
