Pushing their employees to the breaking point does it relentless pursuit of profit at the expense of human wellbeing. Make more sense to you now that you're rolling in in draftkings cash at least theoretically. I haven't been naive about these things historically but even i have been surprised at the way. The corporate greed has turned these bodies into disposable things that can be thrown into a meat grinder because it has soiled these. Nba playoffs for me. The obvious way that the bodies have been broken by the need to satisfy the television contracts. It's distorted the product the measurement and the champion for me. I'm surprised to say that. Actually folks can't see this because it's a podcast but the whole time dan wearing a top hat and has a monocle and he's not even sitting on a chair he's sitting on the stack of human beings. There's got pound up there. His crew and dan. It's not like these injuries are coming out of nowhere. I mean most of these guys who are heard guys a long history of injuries carry ad. In why i mean maybe it's simply that if these guys spend enough time in the playoffs together their injuries sync up. Like thermo like menstrual cycle. Maybe that's it like a menstrual cycle. Yeah like you know how. We'll get on the same cycle if they're around each other because they're pheromones ramones kick in and all of a sudden you know the kind of going at the same time.

The postseason is lebron. I mean i'm. I'm perfectly fine without these playoffs. Played out kevin durant. I have a new found respect for him. Because he's trotting around with jeff green and and blake griffin and so on perfectly fine like devon booker verse janas in the nba finals to me. That's fantastic totally agree. I'm disappointed in the injuries. I agree with you about the corporate greed. But i can't deny that there's a part of me. That's a little glad we're not going to see the nets in the finals. I mean 'cause that team when healthy was just so undeniably the super the super teams then winning a championship. That just would have been boring. And we like watching.

So how how would you describe yourself in this moment. Somebody said hey dunkin what the hell you do. I mean you know to address the first thing you mentioned there. Which is this like. It's an odd thing when people apologize or like you have a sense. Like i don't know you are but i think that is kind of a reality that we're living in now is like we've branched off and tunneled off into our own little micro versus here so really. There wouldn't be much of a reason you might have. I mean i've got a animated series based on my podcast on netflix. Yeah but then. I wouldn't consider myself an animator you know and then but i do stand up comedy but you know. I've got imposter syndrome. Pretty bad in that regards. I don't know if i'm a comedian. And then like well podcast. But then like i listen to podcasts. My favorite murder. That are like. And i'm like glass podcasting. Yeah you know what i mean. So don't you kind of feel like there's a like the moment you start putting yourself into a box so to speak it that moment you you cut yourself off from like the reality of what it is to be a human right now. which is you know. we're all kind of. here's horrible. Word that you hear out in the industry that like they used to put it in early days when they couldn't say what you are. They call you up multi hyphen it. It was one of the most depressing labels. Imagine you know because it sounds like some some likes laboratory equipment or something but yeah. I don't know what i mean. I don't know so it's interesting right now i hear you. There's a great quote from oscar wilde oscar wilde. One said that if you know what you want to be then you inevitably become it. That is your punishment but if you never know then you can be anything and there is a truth to that. We are not now now. We are verbs. I'm not a thing in actor a writer. I'm a person who does things i write. I act and i never know what i'm going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun. Yeah yeah because then you start trying to be that thing or start over overexerting to make sure people like that. You live up to what in your mind or other people's expectations for whatever. The particular label is now. That's an important thing. Certain fields want my surgeon to be like. Hey i'm not really sure If i'm a surge in you know.

"Let's go on to mention a few others. Don't always have quotes from everybody but Miguel de sunday's. He's the one that wrote down curiosity member about hilton the windmills. He was put in jail. I think he was put in jail for debts. He odette so he was better. You put in jail for that De profundis by oscar wilde oscar wilde was put in jail because he was gay guy. Court engage with. Apparently somebody's powerful son hoops but that that as one of the pieces he wrote while he was in jail a john. Jay wrote our lady of the flowers while in jail gone over here okay all right nelson mandela just a little bit about him not to tear down anybody's idle or making anything worse than it is but we can't learn anything about anybody unless we know the truth about things when we live on fans fantasies and fairytales. That's how we remove ourselves from the reality of things now. Nelson mandela is one of the very few political activists in the history of mankind. Dow's actually arrested for something that he really did do. He did murder policeman. He didn't murder him in self defense. Now he went to the police station shot and killed them. He murdered policeman whether they were part of the political protests back then or the fact that he was very mad because policemen over they were literally shoot into crowds of protesters and kill people on a regular basis. Which is reason why he did that. Out of the fury of that sort of thing happening but he was convicted of an actual civilian crime You can call it political and nothing wrong with doing so but nevertheless he did murder somebody. I think murdered more than two actually and went to jail for. He converted into a more nonviolent person while in jail and revisited. Many of his His angers in his beliefs and and the things that he did want from society. Okay he Put together a book in jail that later got published when he got out of jail called conversation with myself and i find this particular patch of that book very interesting because i think you can tell that he's realizing some of the things he did some of the things he needed to change himself if he wants to be the leader that he he did..

"Okay. I'm like wait a minute but when a huge that it's again it's not about being flashy curry songs. Kirk read from the read effect. You know him. He's a Toronto helps. So yeah sounds familiar. Yeah so he was in my studio the other day and he came in city we were chatting and what he said was an what we determined was kind of part of the whole. Youtube problem is like when people are are kind of flexing on the Graham like on instagram. More flexing on youtube skills. There's an egotistical narcissism to it which is very repugnant artists. Artists are doing when they're good or when they're great is they're giving to the audience. They're not taking anything. And when people are Kinda bragging about their skills and they're saying look at me how great I am. Most people. Don't WANNA LOOK. I mean when I see a there are countless it's Har- players for example. Who is cool if you're into this? I'm not dissing it. But you know you go on grammar or Youtube and they're people shredding and technically perfect and in over some kind of lush sterile keypad and a word because it just. It's like I watched them because just listening to it. I don't really want to listen to that. Driving my car or something to her home but watch a bit of it go. Wow that's cool and then okay enough I I'm not going to I don't want to. Yeah yeah that's IT and again it's not to Dec- this side show. He you ever seen a sideshow. Jeff I think so a freak show freak show. Yeah I have. Yeah I was in Austin a couple of weeks ago and I went to the Museum of the weird and there was a legitimate freak show like the guy had a growth disorder which blended his to hit three fingers is these two fingers were combined together into one and long and these two are combined together into one long and then his thumb and his feet were the same way. And there's like this is a known disease and like one hundred thousand people have it or whatever right and he goes on stage and he does his freak show right and then everyone you know gives money in the pot and this is Lee this very distasteful not allowed in. I don't know if it's illegal but it certainly our social have pushed it to the F. Far Away we have these all over the place right right and like a freak show you watch. You don't like that you're watching it. Maybe it makes you feel a little bit sick to your stomach. But you can't take your eyes off it right. Yeah and You know I mean the good music or a band. That's really touching your soul doesn't feel like that it goes in the other direction and it's drawing you in and so. I think that like the whole you technically sterile. Youtube thing is kind of like a freak show in a way. Like what are you doing? You're you're bragging. All you're doing is showing how technically good you are on the guitar to the world but are you giving us anything with that. Erin. And that's it I agree. I don't think there's anything is a little bit of value in in the entertainment. I suppose but again Even as musician a guitar player a watch the middle. That's really cool. I can't do that but I'm not going to. I mean if I could get a minute of entertainment watching it. They could be twelve minute video and I'm just not going to sit through because it's I've seen it is in a minute. I saw everything that I need to see whereas I can take in a battle of Hell I can listen to that. Cd In my car. For I don't know how many times I earned it and still. It still feels like exciting to me. That's a power of good songs good music and like the Beatles you know you can listen to it again. It's still feels moves you right and I'm sure and giving something that's a good point when I make videos and I was talking to somebody the other day about my my music that he has made at least four for the album that I've done and I make myself there's no budget and they're completely silly and goofy and the whole point of that though is to entertain because a lot of people when they're making a music video You know level like mine words. You know you're not a rockstar. Anything they make videos in the higher crew and they make it as polished as they can in the whole point is to project some image into me. it's not about me. I mean it. Yeah it's my music and it's my face might retire and everything but really If I want somebody to sit through a music video and listen to my song for three minutes I want them to be entertained. so trying to make something looked way to Polish. Doesn't seem to make any sense to me Yeah I mean. It's an again not dissing anybody for that. Might take our maybe slightly different. Scott while you're while we're I want you to look up. Who's the guy that he's an Irish writer? And he wrote the Essay. The critic as artists can't remember his name. You know what I'm talking about. I'm on it at who that is. So here's my point. I think In critic as artists and I'm going to give the writer from the eighteen hundreds of credit in a second as soon as Scott tells me his name but what he talks about is that actually. The artist doesn't matter it's Oscar Wilde Oscar Wilde. Okay critic is artist. Okay and what he would say is that I don't care who the artist is and I don't care what the artist thinks of their music or their paintings or anything else doesn't matter it doesn't matter what the artist thinks and I think it's not it doesn't hit the art doesn't belong to him when you put it out there anymore. Exactly like a good way to think about it. I think for and I'm not a musician. a good way to think about it is that it doesn't belong to you. It's actually not your music and you're giving in to people. It's kind of liberating in a way because once it's out there Carolyn. None of Your Business. You know you've put out new. You can move onto the next thing. And hopefully people gain some value out of what created and it keeps you out of that ego space which is so gross. If it's really tough but you know what as a musician in any any artists were told something pretty countered to to it? If I think we're always told you need a thick skin because people criticize what you do. And but meanwhile we unlike most other jobs are are. What we're creating is so vulnerable. Were were putting something out there. That were you know. And then we put it out in June the first time I got a thumbs down on one of my videos like what did I do like. Why is this person? Hey what what are they? What don't elected they normally song. My shoes what you know. You don't know what it is and you can drive yourself nuts with that so again it's liberating to put it out there and stop worrying about because now we on social media drives me crazy. I really have intolerance like a love. Hate thing social media but you post something in your checking your likes you check Miller okay feedback. You're checking people do that in. It's it's such a waste of time here. So here's what here's what I wrote down but it didn't like you. You kind of moved on from the point. Yes or no no. That's okay. No because I'm listening to you interviewing I'm writing stuff down renting ring interviewing and when you're talking back about technically someone's on guitar in there on Youtube or social media showing you their technical side. It's almost like people are doing a mass audition for social media validation. That's very well Would it's sad but I think that's exactly what it is it's like they're auditioning for social media validation and it's Kinda gross actually and we all do it like I do it with my podcast So I do a lighting show. It's pretty popular in letting community and like I get a hit when people like the the the fucking stupid shit that I do. It's like it grosses me out that I like it actually. I know it's it's disturbing that you can't yeah. You know what I mean. I kinda like disgusted with myself for liking it. You know why why do I? Why do I care It's it's eagle validation? That's why it's gross. Darren yeah you know. Yeah and what's the solution like? How do we stop doing it or give? Just give just give your art. I mean not that you shouldn't get paid. That's not what I'm saying. Like those are yeah. Yeah all we give without like just like I'll be okay like if someone were to say That'S OUR WEDDING SONG. Like whatever song it's ours actually we own it because it means 'cause the summer we fell in love. That was the song of the summer and we danced to it like so many times that you know over that summer and then we played it at our wedding and it's our song and if the artists comes along and says no it's not it's my song actually it's not chart a badge of. I can't imagine any any artists that wouldn't be humble than actually be so grateful for that kind of thing. I mean for me that. That's the that's the validation that I want you know just Lights on facebook appreciate that. Of course I don't think that's solid nation. I think it's grotto and that's what that's the world we live in right if the turn people don't Share your stop or like it on Youtube. I don't look at numbers overall though like some people think. I think it's a mistake. The Lot of a band starring out make is they're so concerned with hustling on on instagram. And Cindy the all they're doing is just you've been people into liking. They're following them and those people aren't really engage. They're not there because the right there gilded their trick or they're or they're paid for. It's a crude metric. Social MEDIA LIKES AND FOLLOWERS. It's a crude metric. Yeah I'd rather have five hundred people actually care and thousands and thousands. That are different. I mean what's the point I'd rather they? I'm everybody's welcome. I'd love to assure you know lots of people but those people should actually cares what I'm saying. I think a lot of ands or or artists are so concerned with what it looks like. Went through numbers. Look like and I don't think that's but late in the. If if those numbers translate into dollars I understand it. Like if they'd be showing up at their shows yes ever. Yeah I mean I don't. I don't know how to a so. I know how lighting podcasts should use linked in to gain notoriety and followers. And you know as a as a public relations tool okay I. I know how a lighting podcast should use Lincoln. Okay that particular media. I have.
