Would you let your face be your passport?
"I'm jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story hillary. Beaumont is a freelance investigative reporter based in toronto. Hello hillary hey are you doing. I'm doing well. I'm a little creeped out. About the next time i traveled. Thanks to this piece. No problem just happy to make you aware will listen. Let's start with the actual process. You had your irises scanned as part of reporting this. What is that like. tell me about it. yeah i thought it was. It would be really interesting to go into a jail in texas as part of this story because there was a sheriff there. this guy named omar lucio who had been lake pretty open about the fact that he was using this iris scanner in his jail. His jail is very close to the texas mexico border and this iris scanner was helping basically deport people at the us border And i wanted to go inside the jail and see what this was like. I went in saw how they were using it in jail. They were scanning inmates in an not telling them what this technology was. I volunteer to use it as well as essentially like a little camera. You get your is scanned. It checks your is against database and tells you who the person is and if they have a criminal history and i'm assuming years came up negative. They came up negative. Yes do you know what happened to the scan after you were done well for my is deleted it but for inmates in the jail they keep them indefinitely they basically ended up in government database that is shared with law enforcement agencies across the us like the fbi and also immigration and customs enforcement and essentially they they allow agencies to deport people more quickly or identify people who are not using their real names. And that's really how it works. Is there anything in. we're going to get beyond This one texas jail this one technology In just a second but is there anything preventing that jail or any other place That does this from giving those to anyone else like i. I understand it being used in a law enforcement context though we can certainly debate that. But i mean how private is it wants. Your eyes are out there. Yeah i mean for a lot of these technologies whether it's in a jail context or when you're crossing an international border. What i think people should know is that you're you're in a space of reduced privacy expectation. So it's really hard to say no to these technologies than once your irises or your face or any. Biometric identification is scanned. It can be indefinitely stored in a database an shared with all of these different agencies. Know whether or not you're a criminal. Can you explain a little bit about What a place with a reduced expectation of privacy is an and what does that let the government do yeah So spaces of reduced privacy expectation include borders prisons detention facilities and essentially these areas. Where legally you cannot retain your rights to privacy as well as you wouldn't other context so One example is a back in twenty sixteen. I believe i was flying from toronto pearson. To north dakota and to to report on the standing rock protest and i was flagged for secondary screening and The actually confiscated my phone only about ten minutes But it made me nervous hell You know. I had a pass password on my phone of course but it just made me lake feel so violated that they could take my phone like that even just for a few minutes. I was wondering like things were rushing through my head of like. What are they gonna do with my phone. How long are i going to be kept here. What's going on. And this is just an example of what you can and can't do at borders like you. You have a really hard time retaining your privacy your data your phone in these spaces because what are you supposed to do under those circumstances

The rovers are coming. And so we, You know that update includes all the rovers that exists not just on Mars and we'll start with curiosity. I gave an update. My updates are mostly designed To give the reader a sense of where the rover has been and where it's going to go and why they're going and doing what they're doing. It's not. It's, which is basically the background to the science and the exploration because you know you'll see and I will post of stories on the actual discoveries in the science research. But the rovers there and doing exploration, and it's something that sense on the tourist so well. We insulted a scientist. So I'd like to show that and it's getting very close right now. Curiosity to the actual base of Mount Shop up to now, since it landed almost 18 years ago, it has been basically Traveling first through the crater floor and then through the dunes. Is that a near the base of the mountain and then through the initial, very tiny foothills, and now it's at the base of the mountain. And, of course, the bay, the mountains quite large. So you've got a lot of many mountains flanking the edges, and those who make could be called foothills as well. But now we're getting spectacular stuff. They do not know what causes them. They think it might be related to see pitch of drying out of the ground, but they don't really know and so curious.

We know is that a severe elevation Bob is it goes up that yeah, Ground's getting steeper. And so the route is gonna have two more and you look at my map shows the plans are out and they're gonna be working their way around trying to work their way up the The gentle ist slopes, essentially while getting trying to get to the best places to get science data, And so it's it's like a battle. If you go, the best data might not be easily reachable. So you gotta kind of compromise. Yes, this is going to get to be exciting. That channel is about 1500, ft. High and some spots. It's about that wide. Which is a slot canyon, essentially all even narrower and other places, so it's gonna be exciting.

The robot has got to do its own job. And, uh, I will want people if they watched the live stream. Most of it's going to be NASA propaganda, though their review of the landing site in the rover and science will be somewhat informative.

How To Get on Podcasts as a Guest
"One of the most free questions. I get asked about podcasting is how do i get on other podcasts as guest and its frequent for good reason because people know that podcasts are powerful way to market themselves to get out there to be known. Nobody wants to be ignored. But how do you get on a podcast. You just use cold outreach. Do spam people in their inboxes. Asking to be on their podcast. What is the most effective way to regularly show up on other podcasts. Well i'm going to tell you share with you my system so you can lineup guest appearances for the rest of the year. First of all. I want to address something. That's very very important. One of the things. We all have to come to terms with no matter where you are in your entrepreneurial. Journey is understanding. Why you should be on a podcast. Not talking about the benefits here. i'm talking about. Why would a podcast host. Won't you on their show. You have to honestly answer that question for example. Take a look at some of the bigger podcasts. Out there W f by marc maron. Joe rogan the jordan. Harbinger your show. Why is elon. Musk being interviewed by. Joe rogan. Why did richard bring it on the dribble. your show. Why did president. Braga obama get on w. f. with marc maron. How did that happen. That cold email. joe rogan. No probably the other way around right so the first thing we have establish is the more value can add to an audience. The more likely it's going to be that you're going to show up on that podcast. Let me say that again. The more value you can add to an audience the more likely you will be a guest on that podcast so elon. Musk shows up on. Joe rogan because joe rogan knows. His audience wants to hear from him. He sought after the something here. There's something that he can offer. That makes it worth him trying to get him on the show. One of my favorite podcast interviews is with jamie fox on the tim. Ferriss show and tim for a shares that it took him years to get to the point where he knew jamie foxx enough to convince him to get on his podcast. He had to put a lot of work in a lot of time. A lot of sacrifice a lot of investment and. I'll talk a little bit about how he actually got jamie fox at the end and how relates to today's lesson. Why did tim ferriss go through. All that effort will because he knew the jamie foxx would be a brilliant episode who share incredible stories. He has a lot of value to add. So i want you to start thinking in that way. Yes we all are not jamie fox or president barack obama but we can add value to an audience and we could start somewhere we will have to start with the can show right. We can start with smaller podcast with audiences that are more niche that can really benefit from what we can offer but a lot of us get disappointed that. Hey i'm reaching out these podcasts. And they're not getting back to me. I can really offer a lot of value. Omar will one of the reasons why they're not getting back to us because they just never heard of you or they don't really have any kind of rough of what you can deliver so we're going to solve this problem immediately. One of the best ways to get on a podcast. If your brand new is to be noteworthy that means you have to show people that you can deliver for example if somebody wanted to get on a podcast and they just reached out by email and said hey podcast. I'm an expert at seo. I think i'd be really valuable to your audience versus somebody who says hey. I'd love for you to have me on your show an seo expert. I should talk about how. Google has become the dominant search engine and y. Here's a link to that ted talk hoover's opening the email whoever's reading the email whether it's the host or the executive system that works for the host. They have a lot more mature work with now. They have a reason to say. Yes they have a ted talk to watch and say. Wow this person's credible they really delivered Enough people in that room were willing to listen to this person. He commanded an audience. Might be worth having on the podcast so you have to really give them something to say. Yes. this is why your own content is really really important until you have a few great interviews under your belt where you can share those in your pitches then you need to shoot something else whether it's a youtube video whether it's a bestselling book up performance onstage. Give something to. The decision is easy. It's an easy s now. Our which is one of the ways you can do. This is one of the strategies. I used in the beginning where i literally would go to the pages of all the podcasts. I wanted to go on. I emailed them and Ask them to be on. And i gave him some materials to kind of look through to know that. I'm legit but a more effective way is what's called a warm introduction. Introductions are one of the best ways to get on podcast and it's the fastest way to get a. yes now. there's a few things you can do. Let's start with one of the easiest step step number one is do you know anybody. That's been on amy podcasts. As a guest. Look at all your friends on facebook on social your emails. Is there anybody in your network. That's been on a podcast guest. That knows that can vouch for you if so ask that person. Hey can you introduce me to that. Podcast you're on. A warm introduction is an easy way for them to say. Hey that gas was good and the recommending somebody. There's a good chance that somebody is going to be worth my time. This is why. I really emphasize the importance of building. Your personal network making friends in your industry because you can always help each other out vouch for each other and remember. I talked about how a lot of just don't know who you are. The more you network the more. You're well known. There are so many people. I know that are so good at networking yet. They don't have a best selling book. They are not a social media phenomenon. But if i say their name people know they are because they are great at networking. They're great at making friends in their space and people like that will never starve because they can always find opportunities because they know somebody. So get a warm introductions one of the best ways to get on podcast. Next piece of advice is your aim. Should be trying to get on five. Podcasts doesn't matter the size of the audience or how newer old the podcasts. Is you wanna get some rips. You wanna really understand the process and you want to deliver. Will you wanna do in those first. Five is be the absolute guest that podcast has ever had. I'm talking about study. This podcast study everybody. Who's in your niche or have spoken about the topics that you might talk about in the interview or in the podcast episode and cover things that haven't been covered address issues. Problems challenges that other people haven't addressed on the podcast before you want to be the most guests they've ever had you want to be the jamie foxx episode. Okay why because this is how you're gonna viral market yourself if you knock it out of the park. And you're the best episode for each of these. Podcasts podcasters listen to other podcasts. And the here episode the blake. I gotta get this person on my show and that really worked for me. I work super hard on making sure. I nail my first interviews. That i crush it that i really deliver value. It's my only goal. I'm not trying to promote products and services if the host talks about my websites or my products. That's great. that's fine. But i don't even mention the asking. That question is are any way people can reach out to you. I give out my e mail or give out my twitter handle and try to get the conversation to continue on those mediums. The point here is that you just got to really nail. This not only will help you with the viral marketing of a. But it's a great set of interviews that you can use as samples of your work when you reach out to other podcast to be a guest on. My next tip is make a list. Make a list of all the podcasts. You want to be on. And it's okay if you shoot for the stars and he may even wanna work to that list so like number. One is joe rogan number two. Is tim ferriss. Show whatever just you know naming names here. But you have your favorite podcasts or the best podcasts you want to be on and work your way down. you know. it's okay if that list is one hundred. Two hundred three hundred podcasts. And see as you know a a bucket list you know. I wanna cross these off. And i want to get through all the podcasts as much as possible. And don't forget new. Podcasts are being launched all the time. so you're gonna want to update this list but the list is great to have so you can track your progress and is literally just a spreadsheet on google sheets. You know the podcast name. The podcast host The link to the podcast. And then i actually have a column or linked to my episode. Once i'm on it when you're starting out on another quick tip. I have to say this. But i've noticed some people don't do this but when you're starting out when you're trying to get on other podcasts. Dopey a prima donna. Okay don't be too precious. A lot of people. Don't want to fill out forms. They wanna do pre interviews. They don't wanna do the initial chant. Sometimes they think well this established business successful This is beneath me and this podcast is not popular anyway. Why should i do this. Well you should do it because if you wanna get on the show. That's what needs to be done. There's no room for pride here. You want to get on the podcast. Go through the format. It's good for you helps you prepare helps you do your best when it's time to actually be on the podcast and you're on the road of the actual episode. You gotta earn your stripes. You might be successful in your own area in your own business. But you're entering a new world podcasting and you're nobody here. I don't want to speak on your behalf but if you're a beginner you are still earning your stripes. You're still proving yourself as good guest as a gray guesses a valuable guests so run through the steps in the is as needed. And sometimes you're going to have to do all these kinds of hoops and prepare and schedule months in advance before the episode of airs. The better podcasts. Actually you know. Have a pretty long lead time. Some of the bigger podcasts. I i've been on. They had four five six months of lead time. But as you know time flies so put in the work now so you can reap the benefits later.

Is Apples New Ad Tracking Block The End of Paid Ads?
"Wanna start by explaining. What exactly is happening. Technically and what the user experience will be now with this new ios fourteen update. I this affects anybody on ios. That means anybody using any kind of mobile or tablet device from apple iphone. That's ipad any mobile device. That has iowa's now. You might be saying well. Is that a lot of people. In most western countries. Apple has half or more of the market share when it comes to mobile devices so that means anybody who's visiting a website or a facebook ad. That's using an apple device. They're gonna get this prompt. This prompt is actually asking your users. Feel the vizier. Website visit Let's say facebook for example because they're running ads or using the facebook app. Hey do wanna be tracked around the internet because these websites these Entities these apps have tracking pixels. The allow them to track your whereabouts retarget youth. Throw ads at you. That's why if you go to a website and then go to facebook later on. You'll see ads for that website. So many people are starting to see these pop. Ups says hey. Do you want to be tracked or not and most people going to be. No i don't want to be tracked hate ads or at least they hate the idea of ads on top of that allowing for you set up in your preferences that you block all tracking on all apps and websites so you don't have to answer that prompt every single time. That means that we'll never see an ad from you. So why is apple. Doing this will. Apple is really doubling and tripling down on privacy and security. This has been their main game for a very long time. A lot of people. Choose to use an iphone because of it security. I do that. I mean there are a lot of advantages to iphone. But that's the number one advantage is that it's very hard to hack because of the privacy And all the security that they put into the hardware and the software now many people from tech crunch to forbes have said this is going to greatly affect facebook's actual business google's actual business because their whole business is serving ads. That's how they make money so if you a customer of a product won't be served ads or can't be tracked then the business trying to attract you or try to serve is not going to see the benefit of running ads. They're going to be like. Hey i can't track conversions. i can't Serve these adds to the right people. What's the whole point of digital marketing. If i can't do that for everybody who's on ios. It's such a big deal that i saw propped inside my facebook ads account recently explains hey by the way. Your are just not gonna performance. Well you're not going to see conversions for all the people you're serving and in fact you can't even target the right people because of this new apple up and go head to head and say we are not happy with apple now in true apple fashion. They're going to double down right. In fact there are even whispers that they might baloch apps that actually track users and serve them ads because of it like actually blocked the app from the app store. Meaning you won't be able to use the facebook app unless facebook changes the app so doesn't track you anymore. Obviously facebook is now going to be like. Hey forget it. We're not going to change it. Deal with the apple. No they will not deal with that concept. They can't afford not being in the apple app store and have all the high. Os users have facebook on their phones. That's never going to happen. They're going to have to change their business model in some way. So what does this all mean for you. As a business now for many businesses they grow with a marketing strategy called. Pay dad's right. You pay facebook as facebook. Show these ads to people that look like this that visit my website that are lookalike audiences and i want you to track if they actually convert they actually sign up for my newsletter if the by product that's how a facebook ad works and essentially. That's how google ads work as well like you have to be able to track a conversion which means you're putting a tracking pixel in your website on the in the code of your web site now. Guess what if you have these tracking pixels on your website. Apple will know and when people visit that site. They'll get prompt more so fewer blocking tracking when they go to facebook to see or ahead very. You're paying france and focusing on facebook. Right they won't see a big they blocked tracking and therefore you will not be able to see conversions target the right people and essentially for ios users paid advertising is going to be equivalent to a billboard on street where you know. It's out there. You know people can see it but you really can know who seeing it or see if people actually saw it or converted later on so the appeal of pay dance as really dropped since this news has dropped now. I believe that there will be a shift in pay dance. There will be a different way to do it. It's not going away. Marketing will never go away. And the most part large companies will still dump money into facebook and google ads because hey it's exposure it's awareness. It's cheaper than tv or radio or billboards but facebook and google. We'll see a significant hit. A will pull their money out because small businesses. That's their bread and butter. And it's just not gonna make any sense small businesses. Now you might be saying. Hey omar this is just iowa's devices what about everybody else well. The problem is that apple tends to go first. They tend to lead people. I the do something. And then the market follows maroon. The iphone removed the headphone jack from all their mobile phones. Well guess what. All the other manufacturers followed suit a year or two later just now in the latest iphone. Twelve release apple sorta shipping their phones without a charger. People thought this is ridiculous. A few months later samsung l. g. y. Alway all these other manufacturers have announced that their new phones will not come with chargers they own so much of the market share that the influence so much of the market so if they make a major move most likely others will follow. So should you pull your money off pay. Dan's won't. I'm not gonna tell you to do this. Because everybody's paid advertising strategies a different. How well you're converting You should monitor ads for sure super super closely to see for converting as high for spending more money. If it's going to be harder for you to target the right people that's rule number one number two. You should definitely think of a longterm strategy to spend more resources on content marketing. Were you own the traffic versus where you borrow the traffic with pay dance. This means you know starting a youtube channel. Starting a podcast Really growing your blog investing in seal so people are coming to your website. Coming to your resources you make investments With time and energy and talent but then you reap the benefits in the long run and then you really own that whole ecosystem now. of course you're building upon some platforms like youtube. You know you don't own youtube. But they have such a good distribution channel. It's worth that risk. Same thing with podcasts. In fact podcasts role. Safer because you own the actual feed you own. The files You just distribute your Your actual episodes on feeds like apple or spotify with youtube. Actually upload the video straight to youtube so That's why a lot of people are actually building their own channels on their website using something like with cs channels so. There's a lot of things you can do. But you should start now because things will start rapidly changing in the paid advertising space. Now if you're asking hey what are you going to do. Well we're definitely going to be taking a little bit of a break from paid advertising. We're going to ease up a little bit. Because for us we really need to see the conversions in order for us to build optimize these ads and be able to make them effective. And if we can't do that for people on ios is gonna be really hard to make sure we're spending our money wisely now having said that you definitely still can use paid ads. We'll still use paid dance. Four awareness for driving traffic to our website for launches the steel is going to be careful. I don't need to track anybody. I don't need to put tracking pixels for this. I can just create an ad and drive traffic to my site. I'm not really worried about conversions. More for i wanted to get awareness about my product my services my new thing my new feature or a new blog post were you can use adds to drive traffic to your content. Your content marketing.

Three Marketing Trends to Look Out For in 2021
"So what are the top three trends. I believe you should look out for and twenty twenty one and how to really utilize each of them. So your business can reap the benefits in two thousand and twenty. Many industries are a surge in online shopping online purchases buying things whether it's products or services or tools online. And here's some data for you. Depending on the industry of various from one industry or the other but the minimum growth of online sales was twenty. Five percent in some industries saw up to five hundred percent growth if there was any apprehension of ever buying things online or being reluctant to put a credit card on a website. Those as are totally over cove it has obliterated those objections or the hesitation. And it's been a year. It's been at least nine months for most people in the world who have had adopt to buying things online with grocery whether it's renewing their insurance with our buying coaching or therapy online. The point here is is that this is now. This was a short thing. At least nine months of this was going on so people are in the habit. They're comfortable with checking out online. Now you might be saying. Hey omar that's great But i've been online for years. What does that have to do with me. Well this means that your checkout process has to be on point acid efficient. It has to be fast. Many industries are really upping their game when it comes to check out. This is one of the focuses. We have in our business whether ninja some of the things that you can do to improve the checkout process. So people are having a more pleasant experience and they come back to buying your products and services is a more options for payment. One of the options Haven't adopted yet but we'll be adopting in two thousand. Twenty one is incorporating apple pay into their checkout process. over sixty percent of the internet's traffic is on mobile. That means people are going to be on your side. They're you buying things with their phone and a smooth transition to check out without pulling a credit card out of their wallet using apple pay is going to put you ahead of the game. It's gonna make it easier faster. Simpler for your customers already been predicted that apple pay is going to see a huge jump in twenty twenty one. Many studies have shown that by the end of twenty twenty one. The ten percent of all transactions around the world will be with apple pay. That's a huge slice of the pie. You can tap into that you can increase your checkouts by offering an easy way to check out if you're using a stripe for example checkout already have apple pay built in. You just need to make sure that your interface or checkout process has apple pay a shop affi- store they have apple. Pay already in there so you can really just this on. It's going to take you a few minutes or maybe an hour to set this up on your site and you're good to go trend. Number two people have been watching videos for a very long time but twenty twenty has saw the most significant jump in video consumption ever in history forbes recently published an article showing that in twenty twenty people watched five online videos a day whether it's to whether their videos on people's websites these platforms are designed to keep them watching again. This is a habit. This is a new normal. the has been established. People are watching more and more online. Video is becoming. The medium of choice for communication on top of that youtube tubes algorithm for search engine optimization has gone bonkers. It's incredibly incredibly sophisticated. If you search a term on youtube not only does it search for you know the titles and the descriptions and the comments for those terms it actually knows when somebody actually says those words on the video and will give you a result of based on that. So if you're asking me you should go bullish on video this year. Two thousand twenty one. You should have a video content strategy whether it's a weekly series whether you're running webinars whether you're doing live or recorded video with youtube channel the players that you wanna tap into what people are already doing instead of force people into something that you like doing her new like consuming you're like producing it's never been cheaper. To produce videos now you can get a you know hd or four k webcam for under one hundred dollars get a ring life for fifty dollars and a decent mike for about sixty dollars and you got a home studio. If you're on a mac you have free editing software with movie. Even if you're not on a mac you can always Go with adobe subscription service which you can get their dobie premier Video editing software for like thirty dollars a month an indispensable tool if you're going to get serious about video and twenty twenty one highly recommend you start thinking about what video content you want to produce. It doesn't have to be talking heavy. It could be interviews. You could be reaction videos. It can be collapse as long as it's entertaining. It's engaging it's informative. People will watch trend number three and this one's a big one and it's gonna affect a lot of businesses and you really should start looking into how you can adjust your business to your website. Accordingly and that is privacy and security. This has been something. That's been percolating in the news for some time. This is particularly important when it comes to the way you are going to be advertising to your customers typically if you want to run facebook ads for example you have to put what's called a tracking pixel on your website this facebook to know when somebody's on your website so they can serve them ads on facebook and also allows them to track conversions. The issue is that data gets an owned by facebook. And a lot of it is some information that a lot of gonna wanna share like we'll computer browser on their location. If they're signed into facebook they know a whole lot more. Even you know who they are their likes are wants. All the interactions. They've had on facebook and basically facebook contract this person as they're moving around the internet and this is becoming more of a problem is becoming more of an issue because feel realizing wow. I'm being tracked We started to see this a couple of years ago with the cookies. Message that you see for gdp are people say. Oh the cy has cookies. And it's a way for us to track and people just ignored it and they're just click. Okay things are going to get a little bit. Hotter apple has already announced that in their next ios update for was fourteen. They're going to have actual pop-ups actual System messages from the operating system telling the user telling the person with the iphone. Hey this site has a tracking pixel. Do you want to be tracked. And it's actually quite a statement. It's actually something you really can't ignore. You have to say yes my movements or no. I'm paraphrasing of course. But the point here is that the privacy issue of tracking people is becoming more and more a- battle and obviously apple is going because their brand is all about privacy and security and boy do they have a market share so a lot of your users a lot of people that use iphone. You know if they're use. Iphone are going to see this message on your site. This means you can't have a tracking pixel and you're gonna have to think of ways to market your business you can. Of course run ads without attracting pixel. But you can't track conversions. Which makes it really hard for you to be able advisor ads. Which then begs the questions. Should you run ads. So this is something you need to keep an eye on and you need to plan ahead already in our business. We're trying to move away from paid advertisement or paid acquisition where customers into long term long tail content marketing whether it's a blog whether it's videos whether it's youtube whether it's partnerships with as their affiliates. The point here is that we want to own the traffic. We ought to be able to rely on our own content to bring us a traffic and not use. Third party apps to advertise. This is a big shift. It's not easy. It's not just facebook. Google or anybody else that has any kind of pixel on your site or requires a pixel so that you can track conversions so if you use paid. Acquisition us paid ads on lincoln on facebook on google. You may want to think of other ways to bring in traffic at least wean yourself off of the a bit because it's not going to be as effective as it used to emmy even get more expensive so there you have a guys three trends to look out for twenty twenty one. Get on top of this and be ahead of the game.
Top Secret Apple Device Leaks
"You know will. The has a reputation for being a very secretive company. A company that when they're working on a project anybody who's involved with that project has to keep that thing under wraps and in a even create teams within teams that know a certain amount of information that the greater team doesn't even know about because well for good reason. I guess historically they've done a pretty good job of keeping things under wraps we new projects. That's kind of changed recently as the most of the leaks that we see emerging aren't from hq is from the supply chain somewhere further down the road once they actually start to make the thing but we talk recently. About how apple's considering making a car at least the rumors are out there about that and you start to realize man you gotta protect this massive project from new world eyeballs for for like five years and so that's a difficult task to keep it under wraps now once they start fabricating the thing you can expect probably leaks to emerge but anyway historically apple has had that reputation I remember the situation where an iphone was left in a bar and gizmodo found it. You remember that story and then federal agents showed up the guy who plays he's like. Oh this is scott very intense So there's all kinds of stories like that particularly. When steve jobs was around he was not messing around with the secretive with the secrecy stuff. Anyway today we have a prototype which is sort of showcasing apples. Ultra security program. This is actually an apple. watch prototype. That looks nothing like an apple. Watch and if you scroll down here you'll see it. Looks kind of like an ipod. Actually and there's a video made. Somebody actually got their hands on it. It does not have the digital crown interface. It's obviously an early prototype and there's all kinds of rules and restrictions on it about what to do with it. If you find it who hands it should be in confidential property etc. Now this would be part of the apple watch development early version and in the absence of the digital crown you did kind of interact with it like an ipod with buttons. There's a whole giant home button on the front of it now. It got me thinking you know. I was watching. I was watching that mandalorian show. And and this is not a spoiler. But there's a there's a drone in it and a drone is always is always like they thing he loves to say is if i get captured i got a self destruct became captured. And that's what this box says about this if you receive this. Don't you dare do anything. This is only intended for so it kind of rang. A bell for me there that If found destroy it doesn't say that specifically but like if this prototype must be returned when recalled or and uh when your or configuration which presumably means production validation testing in line with language seen another apple development hardware when. You're when you're not configuration or work. Your validation testing runs out in return. That's the idea. That's the disclaimer. That's the warning so super exclusive. I don't know what one these will be worth Obviously for a collector or something like that. It could be interesting. I know i've seen some prototypes of other apple products in the past. Go to auction Although i don't know that might be difficult. When is not really an official thing that you didn't get through an official means. Don't you think apple will want to hunt this down. I don't know maybe. Is it old enough. Now that they don't really care because you will see on ebay super old tester ipods. Show up here and there for example and they get sold. Yeah so. I don't know maybe there's a certain time limit to it's like look. Some of this stuff is going to get out eventually and it's no longer a project. Were trying to necessarily keep secretive so they let it go that little lisa icon by the way is a is a kind of omar to the to steve jobs daughter lisa and the name of the original says they still use it in their modern products for testing is kind of interesting as well

"omar" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Good morning. I'm jonathan kaye. Part opinion writer for the washington post and welcome to washington post live. It is also a live recording of my post opinions. Podcast cape up. My guess today was just re elected to her second term in the us house of representatives she is congresswoman ilhan omar of minnesota's fifth congressional district congresswoman. Thanks for coming on the podcast. So great to be here with jonathan so less we talked which was yesterday <hes> on msnbc. I ask you for your reaction to being able to say the words president elect biden and your response to me was really interesting you said and correctly and i would love for you to to expand on this. You said that it would be it. It'll be great for you to not have to explain to your daughter. Y the president. The president of the united states was saying mean things about you. I mean so. I don't know if you remember this. Jonathan but <hes>. The president when he was running for president king to minnesota two days before the two thousand sixteen elections and basically when on attack against somali immigrants somali refugees and for me and the community that i represent for my children. It's been a four year assault on everything that we believe in everything that we stand for down to our basic identity <hes> as american refugees in this country. And so you know. I've had many long days many nights having to explain to my youngest child who is now eight <hes>. My two older ones <hes>. You know sort of absorbed and can conceptualize what what is taking place in the political discourse in this country but for her it's been really challenging or this actually happened. You know. I think for a lot of our kids. They hear about a president in the here about <hes>. Someone they're supposed to look up to see as a leader <hes>. and there there's a lot of respect for the presidency that we try to instill in them and to have someone who has denigrated that as president in herve daily formative years has been really challenging. I mean it's one thing to be <hes>. To have someone attack your community writ large. It's another thing when that someone is the president of the united states and he is directly attacking you by name personally. How has how has that felt on a personal level you know. I have gotten accustomed to standing up to bullies in in my life and so on a personal level. It hasn't really impacted me. Besides having you know my my children <hes>. be exposed to add and <hes>. And you know for for the last two months of this election cycle waking up every single warning to text messages from my siblings. Asking if i was safe because he chose to speak about me at every single rally. Didn't really matter where he was sometimes multiple times in a day as he had held his klan rallies throughout the country. And and you know. And i and i thought a lot about in the last two years that attack on me has met for the people who see themselves in me <hes>. Whether it is you know. Muslims whether it is a black woman whether it is immigrants refugees <hes>. People who are aspiring to be leaderless in in our country many. I want to live in an inclusive society and wants to be part of creating progress for our country <hes>. And it's it's really something to to analyze and to understand and to to reckon with. Because as i as i said you know when i first came to the united states in middle school i remember getting a letter of recognition from then president clinton and i remember you know reading this this ladder and i wrote about it in my book. My father sort of was really proud of this letter at the time. I didn't really care much about you. Know who was president or politics <hes>. That to my father. It was an acceptance of our existence in this country. It was sort of another welcoming letter welcoming ladder when you arrive here as a refugee and you know that that is what a president is supposed to be representative of. They are a leader of the nation. They are supposed to make everybody feel as if they are their president and to have now had four years of a president who has occupied. The white house was not seen himself as the leader of all of the people in this country who is not extended a welcoming hand every single person <hes>. Is you know. Really sad. And sing. And disheartening <hes>. And the day that it was announced that he lost his reelection. I tweet it to my now. Deceased father who passed away because of covert complications are that the president did not relieve in. Acknowledge that you know that we did it and he will no longer be president of the united states and the country that he loved <hes>. Will hopefully come back to being a pekan. Oh hope <hes>. An inclusive country that understands that <hes>. There is strength in our diversity and <hes>. And then there are better days ahead of us

So when you're going through the process immigrating to the United States, it's a very long process. There's a lot involved. There's tests lots of days to remember. Lots of facts memorize. And then they showed her a tape of what looked to be an American family having Thanksgiving dinner. You know a table full of food with a beautiful. Check, in or a Turkey happy family around kids who are. Beautifully dressed getting on a brand new school bus. Beautiful homes picket fences the American dream. But when Ilana? America they are roasted Turkeys. We landed in New York City And one of the first things I saw as our car was driving from the airport to the hotel, was people sitting on the side of the streets and little trash everywhere to have that be your first image is is one that's jarring, and it shows a complete contrast to everything. You believe you would witness when you first came. The fact that there were two different Americas is something that she never got over? But is also what planted the seed in her to organize to get involved in politics and do what she could to bridge those two different Americas together. And that friends and family is what Ilhan talked about in that office on Capitol Hill this. Is going through it. I can't imagine. How confusing it must have been to have gotten year and been like this is. They sent me to the like a different planet. I mean I literally said that to my father. This does not look like the American. You'd promised that loss. The. Said, House Child will get. We will get America. And I'm still working on getting to to that America that was on video. What is your earliest memory? My earliest memory it's. It's odd because I don't. I don't really have memories that are colonel logical. And I as I suppose it's because they moved a lot and went through a lot of trauma, but of like my childhood happy memories are around like eating and listening to radio the show. BBC or NPR here and we would listen to it as a family around lunchtime, and at the end right after they did like their programming, they would play songs, and our family was lover of music, and so they would make the males and females often do a lot of the duet songs. Somalis reknowned for a lot of their duets. There's always like a lot of duets are playing on the radio, and so my aunties and uncles and my brothers and My sisters would sort of do that and so that was always fun. To know who could carry tune who couldn't? who had the ability lake Singalong and who? Could and and and. You know we make fun of one another and it was always a very joyous, and then like the neighbors. With symptoms which would come around? We also lived by the by the Marquette. And! There's always a lot of people just stopping bikes. The door was always open. Yeah and the career. What did you know about immigrating to America which he did at the age of twelve, yes. You understand about the move and why you had to leave. So. We were living in a refugee camp, and so what I knew was going to be an opportunity for us to have normalized life. For me in particular was an opportunity to go to school to get an education and It was going to be an opportunity for us to to be safe. And to reorient our future and have path to prosperity. What was the Camp Lang, just like most of the of the refugee camps? I was in a camp in in Mombasa Kenya. So the the one thing that was unique was that in in most camps that US see pictures of now. They're in the desert like setting and ours wasn't really that way was a coastal Mombasa's a coastal city and so there was there was some lush trees at times and and there was like a like a dirty river or something like that that was a pond that was nearby answers, a lot of mosquitoes. People were dying of malaria. And food, related illnesses, and so I. I just I have memories of seen more death in the camp..

"Depressed housing markets twenty years later similarly look at the jobs markets, and they find employment markets are depressed twenty years later and you know. How would that be on some cases in a place like DC or some of the other cities that had very big violent protest events following king's assassination, a bunch of buildings go up in flames, and that that affects not only. Only the residents making the actual infrastructure, black community, less comfortable, less amenable, but are whites who already feel a high degree of threat from blocks you throw in a large violent protests, and there's this exodus of whites, and so there's just kind of this cascade of things that followed the violent protests in that period that show up twenty years later in housing employment market, so in a material way these protests activities are having. Having really long term consequences for black communities I was interested being punked scientists, and are there political consequences not twenty years later, but in the same year nine, hundred sixty eight happens to be an election year and so I. Look at the rainfall in April predict voting in November. It's what I find. Is that rainfall in? April does predict voting in November and what I do find is more conservative shift if you're county was. was proximate to more violent protests activity. It votes more conservatively if they make it. Really Clear County wasn't exposed to more violent protest activity. We don't see that shift says about a six to eight point shift for counties that were proximate to this protest activity, and we might worry that like that's being driven by something like I don't know. Geography rainfalls correlated with geography and rainfall is correlated. geographies correlated with voting behavior. Behavior so I also, it's just a an additional test. I said well. We shouldn't expect rainfall before king is assassinated to influence voting in November, and so I look in the pre period, and in fact, rainfall before king is assassinated, has no predictive power on voting November rainfall in the latter half of April has no predictive power on voting in November. Ninety five percent of the protests occur in the week following King's assassination and And, all of the predictive power is really in that week. In other words, we shouldn't expect an effect. There is no effect trade. It's not just geography. It's not just some spurious correlation. What these results suggest it's only where we really have a strong protest effect that week following king's assassination that rainfall almost certainly through the channel of violent protest activity is causing a rightward shift and more conservative shift in the voting electorate. And I promise to my listeners that if you have a smart objection Tubas paper. Would you haven't read this people more likely Bernard? Omar has specifically addressed. You're smarter. By finding out of Dad and finding a way of taking action seriously and addressing that I find so fascinating about that paper based economists. Is To give sort of empirical grounding to a lot of the things that we've heard in the past weeks. When the latter he shallan spartans talks about the HUD to Atlanta. That may result is turn bond when you hear that I ve inwards of towns Floyd but Bravo of George Floyd about him, not wanting destruction in his own community, and all of the consequences that would entail in the name of his brother. They are drawing on Glib experience of the impacts of violent protests that basic communists sort of documented in social sciences. Sciences and satistics way now a lot of people have been using go paper in the last days in one way or another to draw inferences about his moment and look I think obviously in which your people that you've worked for over ten years happened to be published at a moment when it has things to say about today, but also well the fact that probably some consequences of implications that people try to grow out. More simple minded than you had in mind. How do you think you've you of a tragic events of last week's is informed by the research. You've been doing for the last decade. It's very perceptive point. Let me just step back and say you know I feel like I've been struck by lightning like the paper that have been working on for. You know it's become a joke among friends and family that this thing is just you know it's right around the corner cutting published it finally got published, and then out of nowhere it becomes exceedingly relevant to current events. Then you sort of as a academic hope. Your work is read by anybody, right. I read something like a third of social. Social Science papers never get cited at all, and so this is sort of the opposite extreme of just suddenly finding that something I had been sitting with for so long is of interest and relevance to so many people, and I'm both gratified by that, and also it's a source of some sadness that something that is half-century-old is still so pressing and urgent, and that these kinds of injustices still kind of echo today, so that's just kind of the lived experience for me, which has been a little bit head-spinning. And then more generally I've been very struck by something that I still don't fully have my arms around, but their protests they symbolize A. And I'm still struggling to pin down. What are we talking about? Sometimes when we're actually talking about protests and I think they're. They're kind of a couple of ways. This is played out in the larger public discourse, so one of the ways that King even talks about in letter from Birmingham jail is this kind of one class of response one way the paper has been taken up which is to say Oh, you're not protesting the right way and King chastises the people who he's writing obviously from Birmingham. He takes issue with people saying you keep telling US you're concerned about how we're not protesting the right way. You do not exhibit a similar level of concern for the underlying injustice. We are protesting. Right and so my sort of empirical paper that says Oh nonviolence more effective violence might be less effective is I think in some cases mobilized by voices WanNa say something. Critical of the protests understand that George. Floyd was killed while we heard him cry for his mother. The taking of his life is so great that you. You can't criticize people's anger about that, so there's a kind of rhetorical maneuver which is to shift the conversation. Conversation to Oh. It's the wrong tactics, and that's certainly not my project to say I want to tell people what are appropriate ways to express their morning or their grieve for their anger, but I see some of the ways in which the paper has been taken up that it feels like going back to king's insight. There's a desire not to engage with the kind of the core injustice at play, and so I've tried as more. More attention has come to the paper to kind of keep coming back. To why are we protesting? Like? What is this about? There is at its core, a man who was murdered by a police officer, and that's part of a long history and that I have to come to take off. My social science had a little and just kind of sit with. What does that feel like? How might feel like for others? Why is that? That the thing that is so powerful and so mobilizing, and then there are other things, but let me pause there, and just saying I I kind of interested in how protests as a symbol are operating in some ways independent of what we actually see on the ground, and that's what I'm still trying to make sense of and I didn't anticipate as I was working in the in those computer labs trying to put the paper together. Yeah..

"The Dave icon I have to say is the one and only Mr Omar EPPs. Hello I'm good. Thank you for joining me today. So this is basically going to be a lovefest in celebration of I'll be amazing contributions that you have made to black people in film television etc etc. But I I WANNA talk about Omar before Omar. He wanted to be an actor. So I hear a little Birdie told me that you grew up in New York in East flatbush and live in flatbush right now. It is in my favorite part of Brooklyn. I grew up in flatbush right. That's what I wanted to ask you because right now flab wishes it's it's just about starting to get a little gentrified I think Tell me what it was like when you were. There was great growing up in New York. Times and You know it was just a different time. It was it was it was dangerous. It was exciting. You know But that sense it you know. The New York community was really strong. In all the different cultures and the different food and Different ethnicities different belief systems. All that stuff I think poured into me. You know as a kid growing up in New York and I think it helped me autry moving forward and you IDA straight. How do you think your artistry would have been different if you were from anywhere else? I can't answer that question because the great artists from all over the world. There's no my experience you know it. It helped open my mind. You know to to see different ways of life and the wise in the history of different cultures at such a young age Helped me open my mind? And and I think in being an actor in being in these different characters and he's different journeys it's allow me to sort of stretch my muscle. If you will in a different way where were you introduced to the arts like? When did the when did you know that like okay? This is the thing that I might want to do for me. It was always in my family my my grandfather his soul he was a jazz musician My grandmother was she was just a renaissance woman. She she was saying noushin educator. She was a photographer. She's written books. You know so like when when I was a kid. She had a a darkroom at show. You how far back that was. She's to really develop pictures and she was just always had artistic mind and and so for me. I was into literature. Pretty early into like poetry. And things of that nature you know dabbling around with music and And then I did a school play and That's when I got bit by that that proverbial bug they talk about the play It was grease grease grease play. Duty Duty was like one of the dues over there. But you know I got some be on stage and experienced that that That that feeling in in that connection with audience and and and then for me also as well when I was growing up Sidney portier was was my acting hero and use his power. His elegance is grace That permeated offscreen really spoke to my spirit's once I did that. School play was like I think I want to try this. Yeah did you feel like you were good at it I felt that I was better than Arrow graves. Who In my junior? High School was written to be successful actor in our yearbook. Sorry I still remember this guy like that etched into my memory. I'm going to be a bit active Earl Greece. We need that for people to come from somewhere somewhere so I also know that you went to Laguardia High School which if I understand correctly is like the high school from fame and while you were there you went to school with Marlon Wayans of the Wayans clan of approximately eight thousand children counting counting counting indeed. So while you were in high school where you also like out auditioning and getting gigs and working and in addition to being a kid going to school mauling I used to audition for commercials and he would always beat me out cool because that's my boy but You know we were doing stuff like that like nothing major but you gotta remember. I'm in school with like D'andre Whitfield you know school with car pain like these guys on the cosby show. Pass them in the hallway. Like whoa this thing is real And so you Kinda you know what? I enjoyed my my school time. I'm glad I didn't work that early. Because I really feel specifically for actors you need a life to pull from To pour back into your characters and even though I got started early I mean I did use when I was seventeen but my seventeen back then was like the average twenty five year olds now so that scene been through so much well speaking of juice. Thank you for offering like the second as I did I did. I didn't know this natural chemistry. This is your first film ever ever ever. Is that correct? When I first heard that I was like no way. There's no way that this was his first film because it was just the acting in. That film was phenomenal. And I think it showed me a world that I was like. I don't I don't know if this happened in the world like are there black people like like this and like this. I basically mean like different from me. I grew up in Kentucky which has parts and everything would just like the depth that we saw the characters and of course pots performance I would imagine that you get asked a lot about this idea. That playing bishop. Which was pox. Role changed him like by the end of the movie. Is that something that you hear a lot? No no no. That wasn't that wasn't it was already on his way. I mean he was writing his first album While we were filming the movie he he had already been semi famous because you know his whole experience with digital underground and so he was sort of breaking into his own and it was both of our first films but pack was Was An actor a train actor and And that's why those performances were so great and I think that also the timing of win juice was happening. It was just magical because you have to look at like the call it the culture now but his hip hop it was all happening at the same time so it was all exploding at the same time and we were sort of that second wave after Spike. Lee of the young culture so for us we were these four kids. We could so relate to it because it was us. We didn't necessarily know each other personally but it was easy to put okay. He's at archetype. He's at archetype he's a you know. An impact Nye had a somewhat similar dynamics to bishop and q while sort of the you know responsible one and he was sort of renegade But he was a great career. Brother do you remember where you were when you heard the news that she got throw you? I was I was at home. Yeah it was at home and the phone rang is before we had cell phone the phone rang and it was earns Dickerson and then he said hey man you got to roll and I was like wow you know. I was incredible and call my mom. She was like all right cool but it was like chill about it well because it was We didn't know exactly what was happening. You know because even those my first film like I was taking. The train is set. You know I lived at the time in East New York and we were filming all the way in Harlem so I ended up going to stay with the first ad because he lived downtown Brooklyn so it was easier to you know it was still brass tacks. It wasn't like most. We're coming to pick me up and we were helicoptering. You know what I mean so it was still you know You know was still grounded. The experience of it was still grounded but it was It was incredible. It was incredible. It was it was also dangerous again. We film in like in the Mid alluded hood and Harlem and Harlem was a different place back then. Two very different place back then. That's when you know I mean. Pack was befriending certain cats on the set and the next thing we know why we at lunch they running up in his trail still jewelry and stuff so is though New York. This is a real quick.

"It can damage you you know or you can use that as fuel as I did and I was blessed to have a wonderful mother Who will just you know instill in me and made me feel valued in of worth at a young age and so for me? When I was younger I will take that anger and resentment? That's natural for a kid to feel and I would convert it into into fuel to push me forward and and I was able to have this artistic expression to release lease it you know. So what did you. What did you think when you started acting? She was you know she was cool with it was I was a psych. You know 'cause my mom was that she was a teacher and abortive for thirty years. So she's you know you're going to school. You're going to be a lawyer going to be on me and I was like you know. Go Audition for this Performing I'm not school. She wanted me to go to a different high school. She she comes with me to the audition My audition for vocal enacting. And then when we left she was like likes you. Didn't I said there's no way I didn't get into their school. And she's she's looking at me. Like very cocky right you know and so go to school and I'm doing my thing and then when I got out when I graduated I was like I think I'm GonNa take some time to figure out because you know I'm a New Yorker mccade from Brooklyn New York it's like you're GonNa go do stage and and that summer ride you know went on this audition and book my Gig and so. I'm Tom Doing a movie. She's kind of like Okay let's go Komo. It didn't resonate with my mom until we were at the premiere of juice. And Diana. Ross is sitting since away from my goodness and my Mama's the Diana Ross really doing a movie we we always laugh when we reminisce about that. But that's when she he was like Oh you like you're really doing this like attention to kind of you know. My my personality is more laid back. Jack I'm more of an observer and and and my process My creative process is a bit introverted. So it wasn't like you know I was coming home at the time telling her about this scene or this I was just you know making it seem like just another day at work you know but when she saw the finished product she was proud. I was that must've been so special though. I mean anytime I am a sap. I'm a huge APSO. Whenever I see parents with their kids at the Oscars and I say kids as an you are still a the kid to your mother right well? It doesn't matter if you're fifty years old when you see that though and the joy and the pride. I don't think there's anything but it's something. Actually premiers premieres can be crazy. But I look forward to those moments when you see the family together and you see that they're getting to celebrate It's really special. I went to the trick premiere of the other day. Your gorgeous wife and son in it you know it makes me smile. It does because you're sharing it and I can tell you growing up my dad doing what he's always done figuring out at that certain point Okay he's on TV and that's why people know him okay and he writes books okay. But he's my dad and then one day having people start coming up and saying you know Your Dad's the reason I love movies. Your Dad's the reason that I write about movies or you're you're talking about the cinematographer earlier. WHO said that he Ernest Ernest? WHO said that? He admitted me bragging. He said to my dad that it was his book book on cinematography that got him interested and this is precious and so it brings me joy to see your son there because I know that he's sitting there going. That's my dad. I mean you know whatever you do in life you know if if you able to find some level of success and success this is relative you know it's is as a parent you do it for your kids you know and and for me you know the flipside for like for me being this seventeen year old kid from Brooklyn you know from single parent household you know and to share that moment with my mom's age you know all those seeds you planted coming harvest now and I'm not a lawyer but look who's sitting next to you but that was those great memories because there's nothing like the first a lot of times last share. Oh what's your favorite this and for me. I don't have a favorite honestly because every project and every character that to me me. They're all like pieces of a giant mosaic. That's incomplete but but there's nothing like the first. It was juice as well like. That's it's a big deal and and you know and you worked with two pucks occur. Yeah we're we're to mind blowing. I mean that's another. He was He was an amazing guy and One of those people that changed the energy changes when they walk in a room. And I don't I know what that thing is. We call it x factor. We call it whatever we call it but he had. He had that thing where it's like. Who Do you want to know? What's what's he about you know? And he you know he was so smart and And so talented. You know he had we. We had so much fun. Just I'd like to call it. Doing the dance is is is. What acting is what we just had so much fun because we would just sparring kids during our first film and He was he was he was nineteen. Yeah then he was recording his first album. He was writing his first album at that time. And one of my really great memories is 'cause you know like at Ed lunchtime. He's called me in the trailer and he'd start wrapping. Say something about. Yeah that's cool that's cool and then one one morning He was reading the newspaper deeper and a woman had thrown a baby into the incinerator. which is horrible right but sad to say but in New York in those times like that was normal to hear stories like that so I was aside like you know that happens? Every day managed messed up and he was just so affected by the whole day talking about it so much time rolls around and he's like he may come into the trailer and okay and he's doing this rap and I'm like okay that's cool not putting two and two together and then months later. His first album comes out in this song. Brenda Brindell got a baby. Brenda's got a baby comes on. I'm like Whoa like that's the that's what he was writing about from that news paper article and and that right there to me encapsulate his cancer. Lisa's jeans you know what What I mean? That's pretty that's crazy. Wow Yeah yeah but we add You know we had a lot of fun working with Ernest and You Know Sam Jackson Queen Latifah and it was just a great time For or I will say it was for black cinema at that point because you know we'd had out spike Lee reset the bar. Sure right sure game. Changing he was game changing in and so now is that the next wave of was coming inside think of Jews. I think our boys in the hood I think of Minister Society and like you know and all these films were being made and coming out around the same time so it was a magical time. Well I I was a kid and I remember. That's why when people bring up now that they don't They don't know about this they don't about that and I go. Oh my God is a kid. It was the biggest thing you know. I'm born in the eighties like that's when it was hitting and hard and you know for me like at the trick from Mir Marlon Williams was there and I turned around and he was standing behind me and I had a heart attack. Because I am a Wayne's brothers child I love them like I will sit at the altar of Wayne's brothers all day long all fifteen thousand oh right you know and that's the fact that you came up with some of them I am and that it's it's all really it special. That's the thing you can't we can't make things happen with timing. We can't force situations but it is really special. Yeah and I think I think when I think back to it now I think the fact that there was no social media of course made things more special. That's one thing I worry about now with not just kids. Just people in general is that we're so inundated with information and content that everything's just disposable. You know like you I think about you think back to certain albums you would live with that album for three years. You would cherish that out now. It's like it's gone in a week. You know and and and the the same thing with the film and Television you would live with this thing and you couldn't wait to see it again in an wonder if people still have those those types of connections to art you know I don't I don't know but I just feel like social media makes everything so so accessible that it's just like us not special any. Yeah yeah no I mean when you went to tower records as a kid growing appear like that was I saved up my allowance and going via CD and it was a huge deal. Because that's what I get. That meant nothing else. I was getting that CD. Would go down there even browse bouncing your pocket. I do though in our house we We definitely like things so we have many book a LASERDISC. DVD BLU ray. I'm surprised there's not analog somewhere we have film we got thirty five minute we got. We got film downstairs. It's but I think it is that is i. I like them to be real And with a CD even lighter notes and things like that that was really important to and and I'm not even mentioning Vinyl. We have plenty vinyl much draining myself. That was a piece of two and then even with DVD's they would start to come out with before it was everything on the DVD. But like there'd be interview view things like that and it was like like you say like it was precious. You want to read the lyrics who produced. That song wrote Rice thing and you know you wanted to see the. Ah The dedications. Yeah you don't like all that stuff to me was is was part of the package that was being presented. You know from those artists. I just I. I don't know if if that has If that still exists in a different capacity with a certain generation a younger generation sure I don't know But these days I just you know because art for me is the thing that makes the world go round choirs all forms of art right like this art in food. equalizers of humanity's keeps us together. Because it's where those things strip away You whatever your political thoughts are whatever years. Socio economic things are with the whole tribalism of it all gets shipped away now. We're just sitting around eating eating food. Everybody gets angry. You know and then and this is how we. Oh I've never had this this from your culture. We'll try this from mine and it's like Oh wow I love that now and this is how we exchange in in progress so that means something to me that people still have that connection. Are you know because it's what even when you look look at the the art that's being made now like you know you couldn't no studio would have invested in something like moonlight twenty years ago. Yeah think about you. Yeah you know what I mean. Now you're getting to tell like stories to to to give a voice to the voiceless yeah essence and it's all through art and people are able to learn People of course entertained but it's like for someone who might have been closed minded in a certain way they could watch that film in it we give them a different review of people from that that walk of life that it fires empathy right. You know and which which is the key to so much the key to so many so many issues and problems is a lack of exactly? What's exciting about to me? Someone like you someone like Barry Jenkins because you really love all of this and it's a part of you you are excited to share it and you want to share it. You know. That's when you meet a Devante. That woman is is one of the most impressive humans ever like she she she is power and she is lovely and warm. And you know it's like thank you for being the person doing that. Very Jenkins same thing. We know him from telluride Film Festival. I would scoop popcorn with him like he you know he loves movies. Another so call overnight success. We love those thirty years overnight. Great but that. I think I hope that they will keep a lot of this alive as well And even if it's just that we still go to the movies and so you're in a theater with other people I'll take it. You know as I say I because we were having having you on and your publicist saying here the movies that you know they're coming out next and what I found out that I could see trick instead of having to watch as link at home which happens. It's fine but it was premiered. Scream fest. We'll let me go see this in a theater because first of all to scary movie. It's much like it should be seen in a theater with people you know. It shouldn't wouldn't be something where I'm by myself so you know that. That's what makes it fun that audience. They were laughing they they were a raucous and to your point though. It's one of those things that was another thing I was. I mean the film. The movie theater is is not going to die and about five years ago or maybe seven years ago when streaming was really starting to take off. I was Kinda concerned about that because I was thinking. Do people even still care air about that communal experience and they do you know whether whether it's a film like trick or you know whether it's out on the old Black Panther or you know what I mean like you know these films they feel better when it's a it's a community Ryan Cooler someone else who loves movies and loves art and amazing. He's a he's he's such a gem he's another one like I get. I get excited. Because I talked to him and his wife Hifu is amazing to like and they are so they just they want to make things and they want to support people who are making things and it isn't even that they're just promoting their stuff they wanna make sure that everything gets out there.
