Trans Group Calls for the Ban of Aretha Franklin's 'Natural Woman'
"The Norwegians are all upset because Aretha Franklin, sang a song back in 1968. When yours truly was one year old. Maybe you've heard of the song. It's called you make me feel like a natural woman. You may have heard of this song. You may love the song. Back in the 1960s, it was one of the most popular songs in all of music. As a matter of fact, when Aretha Franklin, the Queen of soul, was well into her latter years. She was invited to sing that song at the Kennedy Center that was in 2015. But anyway, a group of transgender activists are very upset, and they say they got triggered by Aretha Franklin's song, you make me feel like a natural woman. They say the song perpetuates harmful anti trans stereotypes. The group says there is no such thing as a natural woman. And now they're calling on Apple music and Spotify to remove the song from their platforms. And you know, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. I mean, they would have to, right? I mean, that's the whole point of this woke trigger mob, right? When you get triggered by something, you have to remove it. Nobody can be offended anymore. In America. And by the way, if you're a dude who thinks he's a woman and you get your pantyhose in a twist over Aretha Franklin, you've got bigger problems. Yeah, I know you already have problems, but you have bigger problems on top of the problems you already have.

"A lot. All right, that was Christian looms down from the Norwegian humanist association. Really interesting chatting with him. Todd what did you take away from that conversation? Oh my God. Well, there's so much. It's such a rich vein. It's the opposite of most of what we've been talking about. Before, right? Just when I think about the things we've talked about with organization, it's beyond founding the group. Well, how do you retain membership? How do we, how do you grow the membership? How do you keep people there? And then talking about, do we need magic? Do we need ritual? Do we need ceremonies? How do we build this culture around it? And one of the things that really stands out is for the Norwegians, they did everything backwards. Compared to what we've talked about. They didn't found a group and then try to incorporate rituals. They had a ritual and then they incorporated it and they made a group around it. That's pretty fascinating. That's a very, very different thing. Yeah. Yeah, I think, you know, many groups in North America, I suppose, and elsewhere, maybe in Europe. It's sort of now a question and now that these groups are founded, it's a question like, well, should we start bringing in secular marriage ceremonies or humanist marriage ceremonies and so on? Whereas, yeah, I mean like you say it's like they did it well I guess from our first budget from backwards. And it's interesting how much the confirmation ritual or whatever is still such a big part of their like the main kind of or one of the main motivators for people to join, I think is really interesting. Whereas I think for other people and again in North America, it's probably like, that's probably not the main reason one would join a sort of secular community or something. No, no, yeah. I mean, a lot of it and we've heard from people who have like, that's what they're trying to get away from, right? I gotta do this thing in this way at this time. And it's yeah, it's a completely different situation. And which, I mean, really stands out if you think about it like going from how you transform from a state religion, a mandated state religion where everybody has to get confirmed. To becoming one of the most secular places on earth.

"That depends on how you belong defined belong to a church. Okay, I should have not been so tough on the outside of this. And I would say that because belong to a church of I have some members that belongs to churches and so on, and they need to define for themselves how humanists they are. But at the same time, both we and the Norwegian state church says that you can not be part of two organizations at once. Or we actually allow for it, but they are more strict than we are. But we are used to have a different payment levels for being soul member of humanist Norwegian humanist association and being members of other organizations as well. So we used to have that, but at the moment we don't. But at the same time, in practice, I belong to a church when we talk about it together with my wife, for example. Because she belongs to a church and I go to that church and I participate in their meetings in some capacity. And then, well, from an American perspective, I would probably belong to that church. But from a Norwegian one, we tend to be thinking about the membership. Can a true humanist speak out against government policies while taking government money? Yes. And I do it all the time. No, but at the same time, as being a teacher being a PhD candidate, all of my income comes from government money. And of course, as an organization, a lot of the money that organization has comes from the government. So yes, we can absolutely talk out. Against the government. And still receive money from the government. Very nice. Can A-okay, next one can a true humanist oppose a welfare state? From a Norwegian perspective that is quite difficult to imagine. But that is probably it is probably more difficult for a Norwegian humanist than for humanist from other countries. But that has something to do with my cultural upbringing and belonging to as such a system and I would it would I really do think that it's more difficult for more people outside of welfare state than inside the welfare state. Yeah. So it's kind of baked into Norwegian humanists. Is it sort of part of the fabric? Do you feel it's part of something that's distinctly Norwegian humanism? I don't think it's Norwegian humanism, just don't I just think it's Norwegian. There's not that many Norwegians that talk out against welfare states. As a percentage of the population. So it's just a few Norwegians in total. Okay, can it chew humanist name their children with religious names like Christian? Yes, and I have met several. No, but we have more biblical names than that. They are normal names in the fabric of society. But of course, the local bishop is a good friend of mine. Is retiring now, but he is always making a joke about my name when I see him. And he really does think that wonderful and clever. But talking to an American audience talking to Americans, British people, of course, it's always a part of the amusement to say my name. It is ironic. Especially since I am used to introduce myself to say that I am Christian and not my name is Christian. Yes. I like it. Okay, Christian. Can a true humanist celebrate you? Most humanists do celebrate you. That's fantastic. And I have a lot of members that would claim that the Norwegian or the church has

"We are the sending organization and then we have the host institutions and I'm luckily not part of the hiring processes. So what are the qualifications then to become a chaplain? Is it can anyone do it or do you need some kind of background? They are mostly philosophical practitioners. At the moment, but probably it will become available for other educational backgrounds as well. But when these institutional chaplains have traditionally had quite long education, it is important for them to be taken seriously that they also have more or less the same educational status because the priests in Norway has 6 years of education in the Norwegian state church and that gives a lot of credibility in a lot of these positions and a lot of training, so they are philosophical practitioners for the most part. From what I can see. I also wanted to ask on a different note is, I mean, one thing we see in North America, I guess, is sort of just a whole bunch of different groups fighting for members. And there's a lot of overlap between the different groups. And I wonder if it's what is the case in Norway if the Norwegian humanist, if they are kind of the main domain group or are there other atheists and secular groups in our way too? Us being a life stander organization, we are quite the dominant one in the market by the lack of the other words for it. But there are another humanist organization, which is called, well, the humanists. But this is life stands organization open for humanists that believe in God and does not believe in God. So it is a different kind of humanism in some degree. So it says some overlap in membership, but well, as in potential membership, I would rather say, and

"I would just like to point out that, you know, the flip side of monarchy that makes it terrible is that the king loses their freedom. All the royalties. They're the only people who have a religion chosen for them. That doesn't seem quite fair. So your organization, okay, another thing, Christian, with we're thinking about where you guys are today, you're already really big, and you keep getting bigger. How is that happening? How did you guys get so big? And how do you grow now? Earlier, we used to say that we got new members when the Norwegian state church did, well, stupid things. When they did something controversial or conservative and they talked out spoke out against LGBT people female priests and so on, and then we got to your members. But and we have been growing quite steadily until a couple of years ago. A couple of thousand new members a year giving you some possibilities for a bit cheaper confirmations, for example, if people were a member. And we have been growing like steadily working upwards. So that has been quite interesting, but at the same time, a lot of people are around 10% of their population says that they identify with the Norwegian humanist association. So it and by having 2% of these people or 2% of the population as members means that we have a lot of potential that we haven't touched upon. So of summary reason we haven't been so interesting to be a part of to be a member of a snoring organization, then people agreeing with us. So we have been focusing a lot on all the good we do. And we are trying to develop chaplaincy services, for example, in schools, not schools, in hospital, universities, prisons, and so on. And trying to show all the good things that we do and talk more about what we do as an organization, then relying on the church to do unpopular stuff. And that has really been paying off. So people to a large degree has become members of the organizations. We have been a normal thing. We have become a normal organization for people to be a member of more than we used to be. And that has been quite important. Yeah. Is it so for in the U.S., the numbers of the non religious? Are growing everywhere, right? It's not really bound by space. It's not really bound by age, except

"Yeah. And it sounds like you still like the stories. Oh, I really do. Do you have my favorite is the ones about Joseph and Daniel, the two different stories sets, of course. But that is my favorite story sets in the Bible. Wow. Do you often read it? How often do you go back to it? Not anymore. I used to do it a couple of times a year or something, but at the moment it has been more rarely. But I do listen to podcasts about reading the Bible, which is quite interesting where I often find where I'm interested and thinking about it more than reading it. So I thought about becoming a theologian, but I figured out it was too few worker opportunities. Academia instead. And that's a lot. Which is yeah. Maybe in Norway, you get too few opportunities for that. But so how much did it did that lend itself to a connection to the Norwegian humanists? When you said, okay, like faith isn't for me anymore. But I still, I still have this affinity for the stories. I still love reading about religion. I still love thinking about this stuff. Did that lead you to the humanists or was there a different track away from religion that was then two of the humanists? That was probably a different track altogether. I realized I realized that I was an atheist and I wanted to become a teacher on the confirmation part since I'm educated a teacher and I'm interested in religion and I figuring out that I'm an atheist. I wanted to become a part of the confirmation teaching for the humanist organization. And so I became a member of the Norwegian humanist association. And that is also because I like to be a part of groups and I like to be a member of organizations that I agree with. So it felt natural to become a member and then become a confirmation teacher. Right. And then so when did you join and then how did you how did you become the president? Actually, I joined in 2012. So I have been a member for a little over ten years now. And I have been a confirmation teacher for most of that time. So that has been quite rewarding and quite fruitful. And becoming the president, well, I have been writing a lot of, I think it's called off beds in the American newspapers. About topics that are important in the Norwegian humanist setting, religion and schools, separation of church and state and so on. And in working with creating debates, creating lectures and so on in my hometown, I've been working through that and, well, somebody thought that I had potential. And I included me in the national board, and now each period in the board runs for two years. So now three periods later, I ended up being the president. Wow. So I'm very thankful and humble for the confidence that people have put in me. Through that. This sounds like a pretty impressive organization. My already, we've heard you're the president. There's a board.

"Yes, we will. Every year they lose a percentage point or more in their membership basis, but they get more money from the state. Those members are constantly worth more money. Yeah, so this is good for the rest of us and for the organizations and churches outside of the Norwegian state church. But this way to do the financing is not the system will break down in a couple of years when there's too few members in the Norwegian state church. And that value of members in other congregations churches and life stands organizations will be too much so this system is not, it's not a good basis for a future system. In the U.S., I think in North America, churches have developed kind of an opposite system where they figure out the price of a soul, which I think is how they describe it. Where it's like, it's the recruiting fee. How much do you need to pay for each person for it to be worth it? So it's a very, it looks very, very different there. Were you a member of the, of the state church growing up, or have you always been humanist? No, I started out being a Christian, so I were a part of my local congregation in a Norwegian state church in more or less. I went a couple of times a year. So not an active member. But I were part of it. And I chose to baptize to be baptized, and I chose to be confirmed. Wow. And afterwards, I lost or I realized that I did not have a faith in the Supernatural part of the religion, but I really like the story, though. So what led you to leave or to realize you no longer believed? It was a slow, slow, slow, realization. So it wasn't any particular happening. Which makes it difficult to say that it was a turning point on or of some kind. But I always, I have always been interested in religion. So reading the Bible reading the Quran and so on. Wow. I probably was a part of it.

"It's three bucks Thursday. Three box Thursday, baby. Three box, there's a thing now. All right, cool. All right, I'm tossing the wheel for the first story of the day, bit of some legal proceedings across the pond in Europe. Will, what's up? This is a great story. I've been waiting for this one for quite a while, so we should all be excited about it. How about has one against Craig Wright in court in Norwegian court for going back a little bit, 2019, some defamation lawsuits between the two of them. HODL not back in 2019, tweeted out that CSW was a fraud, a scammer and a liar. See to W, just had to take him to court saying that, hey, you can't say that about me. I'm the inventor of Bitcoin. It's going to take him to court in the UK where it's very, very hard to win a case against someone who's claiming defamation just because of how legal cases are built there. And so HODL nods had to take him to court first in Norway, and he has won after two, three years of that going through litigation. So pretty enormous day for the Bitcoin community, I think. This was really a good bear market story in 2019. There's a huge, like, I am hot or not, was a huge thing. There's a lot of great coin desk pieces about that. And now we're seeing the conclusion to that story and yet another knock in Craig writes belt, I think he's like, he's got to be done at this point, but maybe not. Maybe there's more to come Zach with her over to you. Bill is promised to certainly is more to come, Craig Wright remains highly litigious character in the space in a space that's founded on the principles of non censorship and free speech. It is remarkable that we see David calling taken to the courts like this so often. It's not the only case that we've seen in the legal realm, but it's certainly one of the more notable ones because it involves Craig Wright, who's a loud and controversial figure within the space who has long claimed that he is indeed the inventor of the Bitcoin. Blockchain. So for this apparent wind to be issued to total not. Yeah, maybe is grounds to celebrate some of the ideals of free speech on which a lot of crypto is founded. But I would not say that this is over yet. It seems as though an appeal is in the works. And I would imagine that more is yet to come. Tossing your way, Jen, what do you think? How many more times is Craig Wright going to go to court and how is he affording this? It's absolutely insane. So the judge ruled that he needs to pay, I think it's over $300,000 to huddle not in legal fees. I also zeroed in on this quote from rights lawyers. They said that huddle not breached the commonly accepted threshold of decency, and I just thought to myself, is this person never been on Twitter before, I think, you know, to say that about something that's happening on Twitter is just kind of funny. Well, I don't know if you have a comment about that. I saw your little smirk there. Yeah, I mean, Twitter, right? So you gotta be ready for anything. It's a town square. And we didn't have like Elon Musk and politicians turned dirt at each other on there. If you're a crypto Twitter, this is just any other day. And Craig Wright is noted for also saying some derogatory terms as well, which you can find in that article. And he is well known for having a rough mouth on Twitter and the lawyer or not the lawyer rather but the judge for this case stated that in the final verdict that you can dish it out, but you can't seemingly take it. So we're not really going to side on your favorite here. Both parties had engaged in pretty rough terms on Twitter. So it's just how it goes. If you choose to engage with that, that's what you get, the outcome. The last point I think is just worth mentioning here is yes, the free speech area here with Bitcoin. I think it's very, so much in terms of what Bitcoin wants and the ethos of the Bitcoin community to have this outcome being favorable. It was expected. I don't know if it was expected if it's going to be in a UK court but the fact that they moved to Norwegian court got a more free speech centric outcome is a pretty big deal. And I think that does fall within the larger Bitcoin spaces purview of what Bitcoin should be like. Maybe not in the Bitcoin SV version of what Bitcoin should be like, but definitely within the Bitcoin, I think most of us know about nowadays. Zack give it to you for last thoughts on this. Yeah, Craig Wright, you know, remains a contentious character. I don't know if he's going to go away anytime soon. But this was certainly something that was closely watched across the space dating back a few years now. A parent resolution. But again, I bet that more will come.

"For me. So i'm going to answer a guy called Cots which has written some books is about from impatient. So that's an odd one out but for me. It's the best book i've read in twenty twenty the artifice -ation when you say fermentation you mean like wine and beer fermentation and food and soya sauce and yogurt and coffee. Kim she and yes so. he's reading. These amazing book called the archer from imitation and to me. It's actually quite inspirational when it comes to the art and ask photographer. I think you should read it because from Is a little bit like being in the dark room. Actually quite a lot like being in the dark room. So it's my substitutes and i think i use it instead of photography and the same way so i do something and you have to wait and you have to be super patient and it might not be what you thought it would be an. You might have to start over again but it gives you this enormous pleasure and a different beats in your life because you have to slow down. And he's also really activated in the sense that it's life act so you can make all these things you thought you had to buy but you can just make them yourself and for me. This whole book is really inspirational. When it comes to art so probably at some point i'm gonna make a group exhibition which is about fermentation. I'm sure it's going to happen at some points. Okay come on for it. Yeah yeah so. You're going to see that group exhibition is gonna be famous and travel. Although the world is going to be a group exhibition about imitation well fermentation is one of the things that it actually translates cross culture there's fermentation in almost every society. So i could a nice traveling exhibition that could cover all kinds of different things. So yeah exactly. And then i have to say that i have to mention some of my beginners sort of got me into this world. So a little credit to talk. I like salomon and the euro angstrom because she was the one. That sort of is one of the reasons why i'm here today. So that's a bit of a hurry to her. I guess yeah. I don't know any photographer of a certain age. That doesn't appreciate sally man for sure.

"Pretty dated at this point but yes super fascinating to pick it up again. Yeah look so. That was distant example of like a story and then starting from the y. And taking it from there. I guess one thing that i always wonder about when it comes to curator's and stuff. Okay so i guess. I don't really know a lot about you. I know you've now for fifty minutes. So the d you work at an institution and only curate there or do you do sort of freelance stuff. So what's the amount of curated and style of curiosity you do. I don't have time. maybe if i didn't have the guy and the region association and the last weekend and i would maybe have some spare time to do some freelance creating but unfortunately i don't so i wear much enjoy doing lots but i- solely do it now for mice dope for the norwegian sculpture association. Exactly okay great. I'm just trying. I've got tabs open. I'm trying to make sure i'm talking about the right place. Ingrates thank you. I tried to look professional. So the the question i always wonder about when it comes to curate stuff is how much of the pedantic stupid shit that we all want to think. He's not important is important. So what i mean by that is footfall like are you sitting there going okay. I want curate this exhibition but we need to be sure to get a big name in order to get more people through the door or we need to have a diversity of genders or diversity of ethnicities or regions. Whatever in order to attract the most people like to have grants that you have to answer to. As far as like the range of people you know gender by age by by nationalities kinds of things like that you have to answer to or is it pretty much just like we can do whatever project we want. That's a good question. I think that you or at least. I can only answer for since i haven't worked for twenty thirty years as a curator. I'm sure i have a lot to learn. And that being said i my experience until now has sort of taught me that one has to look around. Look at what's the local area around like. The context is again quite important. And so you have to see what is around you an connected to that. It's again this little bit about the y you know say sort of connected to that again. So yes i guess you could do. Of course everything you want to do. Big names small names but you do have to sort of look at the situation at the way rather than where i work at the moment. It's not in the city centre. It's his old villa from the eighteenth century. That's not really gallery is not white cube. It's actual villa returned certain spaces of that into sort of gallery spaces but they're not really white cubes and we have the mo- griffey tuesday. That in english demographics demographics exactly around us is not i mean. People is a destination in a sense. But it's quite far off the cd center and has a huge green sculpture park around it that we can full with outdoor sculptures as well if you want to but people use it as private garden. We'd barbecues and parties and baby showers and training and they use our tables are traced workouts. And so you have to adapt to where you're at and your local area. I think we have to especially with also working in public space. We have three kindergartens at least coming every day that place because they don't have any green area in their kindergarten so they use us our park as their space to play. And so that means that. If i play something out there without thinking about the kindergartens it will be. It's lost within one day and so all the artists as well when they exhibit that our place they need to take this in and work with thought they can't just make anything. Put it out in the park. And then you go like woah. So you have to take all of this in and so we program a lot according to that and also according to weather in sense because we're where we at and so the park in the wintertime is different park than when it's summertime so we need to think about light to get really easy. Early dark is all of these other things that you don't think about that you need to think about when you program and i don't think the artists think about as much that we sort of tell them and then of course some of the things you mention we do think about like diversity and we think about gender and we think about age lots. It has a long history where i work. We started just after the second world war. The sculptor society and to make all of these. You know after the second world war everyone needed to put up monuments after everyone died and so they created the society because he could col- somewhere to ask for this and we have this history and so we try a lot to combine the older generation with the super young generation and put them together since we have different spaces in rooms. That's what i love to do. And i think that is one of the things that works the most because you make a bridge between two generations and also to histories and different types of thinking. So that's a little bit of a hack that i like to use as a tool her. I've got one other question that i have been wondering about through the number of different people. I've spoken to in the scandinavian regions. Which is the there is associations and their societies. What's the difference. I don't know and i don't know why they i mean to be on this. I think most of the people when they try to translate on the go where i work they would use asssociation and dot makes most sense but for some reason at some point they decided to call it society and to be honest. I'm not really sure what happened. There okay so there's no like intentional like our society. Does this for the world and the associations do this other thing like there's no differentiation at least that's not where my knowledge life. I'm afraid that might be a rita weiss answer to this but that's for another podcast perhaps or just another person somebody else just might actually have that knowledge. It's perfectly fine. you don't have to know. Everything is literally the definition of what that's the definition of this podcast. Like you're wise about things you're wise about and your foolish about things you do. You're not wise about like totally fine. That's the goal here is. The goal is to try and like soak in everybody's wisdom so that we all become a little wiser and some of our little foolish holes in our careers and our minds sort of get filled in a little bit like. That's the idea war. It's working for me. I have gained exponentially more information. Knowledge and interest in things. Like i did not even know. Existed prior to this podcast.

Each promised an absurd amount of spending knowing they'd back off in the general election. The tendency in both parties playing to their base in the primaries heading towards the middle one. Someone is secure the nomination. Democrats were being honest in those early days. The spending pushes beyond anything in our lifetimes, just as they promised. New York Times columnist Bret Stephens details the danger and Biden's latest effort in a piece titled Biden's planned promises permanent decline.

After signing a 1.9 trillion covert 19 relief bill in March and proposing a 1.5 trillion discretionary budget in April, a 16% increase from this year. On top of that, what's likely to be three trillion in mandatory spending on programs like Medicare and Medicaid. The president wants to 30.3 Trillion more for infrastructure. In 1.8 trillion for new social programs that 7.5 trillion in discretionary spending. To put a number and perspective. We spent 4.1 trillion and inflation adjusted dollars. Over nearly four years to wage and win the second World War bread. My hat is off to you the first person who's managed to put this into terms, and I think the average American Bill Bennett says. We have a numbers problem when we get the numbers this size. It's an astonishing amount of money. That's all he's doing. He is going to transform America by spending money. Well, yeah, and transform it in a way that's irreversible. That's the point. I also make it give in the column because it's one thing If you say you want to spend a lot of money to put a man on the moon will eventually be Apollo program's going to end and you will have a technical and the On a humanistic achievement, but that's over. But when you're spending on programs like like Universal, pre K or paid parental league, those things never go away. So what ends up happening is that the government share of our gross domestic product is going to grow. Something like a French like proportion, which is close to 50% of GDP. If you add all those numbers up coming around eight, you know eight or $9 trillion We are GPS is 21 Trillion, and so that's that's close to 50%, and that brings you into French territory, and it's worth taking a look at the house.

What do you think is the consequence in the United States of this kind of spending?

I would have believed you so white. How hard was english for you to like down. it's a. It's not easy. Because i wanted to is essentially wanted to speak it. Well enough that nobody would really ask in a where are you from or i mean i wouldn't have minded no and i kind of two people. That's two types of people that i come across. There's the people that say. I have no accent. And then the cpa. Let's say he absolutely absolutely has an accent. So i don't know what it is What's different but anyway i. I'm fortunate enough that we had english in school. Since i was at least seven or eight. I wanna say eight. It was like around that time and So but that's not really enough to get to the point where you're speaking it fluently. I i have the benefit of a obviously having a lot of american television and We don't we don't overdub things in the region like they do in germany or spain. We we just have subtitles. So i'm so drained with subtitles for everything nan. What happens when you re everything was subtitled. Says that you're hearing it in the original language. So you're hearing in most cases you're hearing the the joke you're watching the simpsons you're hearing the original joke the way it is intended and if you don't understand it you have the I was going to say lyrics but you have the subtitles to help you. And sometimes they don't help you because they changed the joke to something. Yeah needs or in norwegian because you know there are sometimes. It's just a word in english rhymes with not a word and it doesn't in. Oh it's changed the joke and then all of a sudden you're like why are they talking about norwegian artists.

"And i wanted to make sure that the music is what comes first for. Sure i mean you could have been worse you could have been like a rockstar satanic like one eylau say i really like a rockstar. You upload like an eighty cent remix kinda by two it on youtube and that. I really kind of enjoyed that a little bit more than the original knocking ally like good good good. I the idea i was. I was really listening to a band called churches. And they're like synth pop. They're from scotland. And and i was really digging their music and i was thinking you know. Like and they're they're they're a new ban but they're using a lot of that sort of eighties mentality. Lot of says Drum machines and i was thinking rockstar which was always kind of an eighties tampa song. I think it may be. It came out a little bit more. Seventies sounds thinking what if i just went all eighties the whole thing so i was kinda thinking more michael jackson more like Bon jovi type of mentality and just without really changing anything other than not using not using any guitar wanna see i could just make it all sense different challenge. It came out very very very well and good. I'm you joy. I thought it was fun. It's a good. It's a good experiment to take your. You know your own music. Something you created decided that this is how it's going to be and then flip it upside down and see what else you can do with it. And i mean i probably do the whole album in in different ways and i think it's a good exercise for any songwriter. Or or or. I guess producer will ill it can open your mind up to think of new. Sounds when you're creating new music you know you're making a whole new song you can. Now you've had this experience of doing these different sounds and it can kinda help you like i'm going to add this and this you kind of bring out a little bit but yeah so Before i forget. Because i wanted to ask this question to what what what made you think of the name firestorm for your album but the very origin of the of the term was actually it a video game called tiberius son and there's an expense expansion pack called firestorm. That's where i got the word to keep in mind. That english is my second language. So i you know. Firestorm was not a word in my vocabulary originally so But the meaning of it. And the way i used for this album was i mean the. The album is of ballots. A teenager wanting to make his dreams come true. And you're a teenager. You know there's a lot of motion. This kind of a lot of anger built up. Maybe because you're not things can't happen the way you want him to an things you know things. You have to wait for certain things to happen. And there's a lot of that that anger that just sort of was built up sort of fire in my head so the song is a song called attitude which is definitely the heaviest song on the album in. It says there's a firestorm in my head and he won't go away before i get away and which was the idea of getting away not so much physically from norway but but just getting away from the mentality that i had sort of feeling like i'm sheer and i can't go anywhere which is not the case. Obviously it's that that prison you create in your mind and just wanted to sort of that. Get away from that. You know getting away from myself. Almost so storm is just that that is what's cloudy in your judgment. That's perfect yeah. It's a very good analogy. It really is. i really liked. That's a perfect name for that album and it really is it. It fits very well with the story that you're telling which which leads me to How was it when you when you you jumped off and you left way. You came to america. I can't imagine because i've lived in texas my entire life. I can't imagine like the feeling of making transformation. How was it. it was it was pretty wild. It's a i came here. It was in september and it was still very warm. It was much warmer like norway. By the time you get to september all i think it was like the twenty first of september and it was pretty chilly nor win in and going here and it was still summer. Still warm was like feeling that was like the very first My first impression. Of and then i think one of our first days i was here i went to an english school and i remember. We went to hollywood and we were driving around. On like one of those tourist buses they were taking us around beverly hills and we went to santa monica in all these areas that i've been looking at on on his computer screen. You now sudden them here and it's almost like magic in a way which doesn't happen very often now. it's like okay. I'm actually here is looking at. I'm looking at the hollywood sign. It's right there taking pictures of it. You know it's amazing and And it was. I was determined from the day. Want to try to make something.
